Yes, I've seen those. They are good. Dawkins looks so young doesn't he?

As did I, back then. The thing I really like in this series is because his audiance is children you get the cuddly Dawkins, that and given despite my interest, my lack of an education in the sciences the sheer amount of information and complex ideas explained in plain language without a hint of patronisation. The demonstration of the eye, is the part that always sticks with me.

I thought Feynman fleshed out the idea of the single electron to a greater degree than wheeler or anyone -at least that's where I became acquainted with the notion.

Mathematical chicanery like love is void, single electron. Big Grin

So one step further .... let's say you actually "possessed" her. You would still have exactly the same experience of life, except perhaps, momentarily. No ? .... ? "ennui" ? Are you not "granting", (projecting) "magical" powers ? No matter how "proximate" she would/could be, you, (and she), would always, and only, remain integral. Is there something lacking in the obsessor, (in general)..(not you) ? Is it not a lack of self respect ? Is it the challenge of the chase ? There is only ultimate loneliness. Anything else is delusion ? Or is the "brief moment of distraction" enough ? Is the obsession basically an avoidance mechanism for admitting the nature of reality ?

No. I have over-simulated the simulation (stupid junkie Big Grin), real girl kill me dead. People say "fact or fiction" like there's only two choices, what there is, is a big grey rainbow of fiction. Dreams are a little more real than imagination. Doing shit when you're drunk, a little more or perhaps less real than dreams. Then there's Monday morning. Then there's Monday morning during an earthquake.

From dreams, I'm convinced (enough) to know what it would be like to be with her. From reality - whatever that is - I know that others feel my love of the Gwynnies. Gwynnies + Love of Gwynnies = Meltdown. Wake up in Australia. Besides, if I'm with her, and she gets sad (cause people do that) ?

I get annoying trying to make people happy as it is. I'd annoy myself to death should the Gwynnies frown in my presence. Heart

Love her like crazy. Only, without the like part. Big Grin

In terms of me? Not anymore. She is my sweet everything! Which is to say, my locality must contain her images, the virus spreads from there. Big Grin

In general terms, ya got that backwards. Reinforcing pattern is our obsession, recognizing pattern our intuition. Reality is merely the most reinforced pattern. Like wearing clothes. We obsess over the clothing because we all have a limit to how much bare truth we can bear. Wink

OK. I get it. The monk (in me) trying to understand "the dreams", (not that I don't have any). Tongue

I'm convinced of a "science of simulation" that exists at a level between imagination and actuation. Like how me and my buddy Newt would drop acid and visualize skateboarding, more you do it, the better you get at actual skateboarding. There's been a study since, without the LSD; well, a few of 'em.

There's been a handful of dreams where I've hung out with Gwyneth. She's always been just an acquaintance, but I got high just by her presence. Ever got high off the presence of a girl? The Gwyneth that is "the living god" in my simulation was her as she was in 2000/01, the "love of the Gwynnies" how I felt about her from 2000/05, cause I was a whole different thing before 2005 and the LC bullshit. Wink

The I spent a fuckload of time drawing that girl. Building the simulation was a real construction, dig? And the LC makes it scriptural, creation of the image of god. How I ended up a prophet on an atheist forum. If you look real close, there's a closed time-like loop in there. Thumbsup

Real Gwynnie kill me, like if I plug this thing into a 440 outlet. Tongue
