He's just into tweaking his own shit 'til he gets it right - nothing wrong with that. What's he calling the current incarnation of his belief - monistic something...?

Morondog's book recommendation - GEB - is an oldie but a goodie - a hell of a mind exercise and a fun read. I'm pretty sure it won a Pulitzer. Shy

Yes, it did. Godel, Escher, Bach

Wait a sec. I read it when it came out. Does that mean ... ?

I read it when I was really, really young. Dodgy

Three and a half... centuries? Surely one would learn to read by then? But then I don't really know the age cycle of dragons... Tongue

Hey don't blame Egor or Girly or even Lanza for it. Blame the late great John Archibald Wheeler for even contemplating such a patently absurd idea as a participatory universe and blame the fuckers at my alma mater the University of Maryland for actually going and demonstrating his Delayed Choice Experiment thereby separating the patently from the absurd. ... There's no blood on Girly's hands here. Big Grin

Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Considering the majority, of time in the universe existed with out life, ruins these notions. Another self annihilating idea.

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

Why you trying to argue with Girly? I'm just a lowly computer scientist creating virtual worlds on a daily basis in my own God-like fashion. Evil_monster

Argue with the fucking physicists if you got issues with their interpretations of reality.
