Once again...from
cau•sal•i•ty (kô-zal'i-te) n. pl. cau•sal•i•ties
1. The principle of or relationship between cause and effect.
2. A causal agency, force, or quality.

So let’s look at this in light of the Celestine Prophecy and the idea of causing the coincidences. For example; do the streetlights go out over my head and I notice them or does my looking out for streetlights going out actually cause them to go out in the first place? Is it that I am drawing my energy from ‘the source’ and I draw too hard on the system and take the lights energy of the light over my head?

Is this why we like the movies and books that we do...Celestine Prophecy, Star Wars, The Matrix...a belief in the underlying ‘Force’ of the universe.

Has Star Wars really become our modern day religion?
I wonder if that’s what Lucas had in mind?

I just read your Big Lebowski quote.
Hahahaha!! Lolololol!

A good point to be sure.

I know not what I believe in.
I only know that I know so little.

For Rej aka Eddie


Easter celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus. That morning, according to the Gospel of Luke, Mary Magdalene and some companions visited the cave where He was buried, but they found the tomb empty. An Angel of the Lord appeared and told them that Jesus had risen. In the following days, Jesus appeared to His disciples and explained the meaning of His death (for the sins of mankind) and His victory over death, which offered the promise of rebirth for those who believe in Him. The word Easter may come from Eostre, the Anglo-Saxon name of a Teutonic goddess of Spring and fertility, whose festival was celebrated at the vernal equinox.

Read what the kid wrote...

but here’s the blurb...

Why is it that the battle between the religious right and the secularists is still raging so hard? This conflict between militant opponents has the potential to completely tear apart the social cohesion of this nation. Each side is so convinced of its intellectual superiority that even the slightest provocation sets off baseless accusations and mudslinging.

he's right....we all think our beliefs are sooo superior, even those of us who believe in nothing.

Everything and Nothing

Rej asked me yesterday about the infinity concept and I said I was beginning to grasp it. I articulated it to myself quite well in the shower this morning, however my new soap crayons that my girlfriend bought me in California only function on dry walls and the shower had already begun so I of course forgot what I had said when I sat down after the shower to write it out.

Essentially I think what I am beginning to see is that everything and nothing are the same. To understand infinity is to understand the concept of nothing and vice versa. When I die I will truly become nothing as far as I will be aware. That is the scary difficult one for me to be grasping as I loose my father. It is the one I think you grasped early on with the loss of yours.
I still picture that infinite line in space from math class when they first introduced the concept to us. A white line that fades off into the distance of space the same way train tracks fade away. But that doesn’t really represent infinity because I can’t see the whole line at one time. I think for that it needs to be removed from the realm of the visual, don’t try to picture the line as an entity but rather as a concept. Just say to yourself, “I know this line never ends” without picturing the line but in stead knowing the line.
However, I think basically it is easier to grasp the nothing concept especially if the theorists are right and the universe is 5 billion years old and all the stars will burn out in another 5 billion and everything will go black and end. Numbers like that, although huge are finite. And with computers and gigabytes and terabytes the concept of large numbers like that has become far easier to grasp. So if ten billion years is all the universe gets after the big bang and then it all goes dark and cold (shit)
I was gonna say then there is nothing, which is what the scientists would say...but it’s not nothing, it’s what was there before, just frozen and dark but the matter, the mass is still there.

It really was perfect this 3 or 4 sentences that said it exactly.
All is nothing and vice versa.

Although the think I read like 50 times that Socrates said at his trial is that he would not presume to know what happens when we die. We all have our beliefs...Socrates was a firm believer in the, “I don’t know.”

Ok...I’ll try this again another time...

Cow Faces Revisited
Let me add at this point to a much earlier posing...I realized after 2 months of horror at the thought of having eaten cow face in my McDonalds burgers that it was, "Cow fEEces" not, "Cow fAces" that were in the burger. I was actually relieved to find out it was poop and not face I was eating.
I still went about 2 months without a trip to McDonalds...until last week when I was out walking and stopped in for a burger because I was starving. I had explosive diarrhea for 2 1/2 days after that. Not going to McDonalds again I don't think. So was my favorite when I was a little kid. Well...most of my life, except the years I try to avoid the place.
