  • Hilary Stace,

    Paul - I think it was you who first mentioned the dugongs in Sydney Aquarium. Thanks. Sydney quite nice too last week - 20+C degrees and people swimming! in the east coast beaches.

  • Paul Williams,

    Gio, I might have missed that conceptualisation if it appeared earlier in the thread, I like it a lot. I've not given up on the thought that there might be some super-sentience, though I've have given up on its various Biblical descriptions.

    Hilary, great, glad you enjoyed them. I didn't see them myself but my four-year old still raves about them some months later (she's convinced that they are mermaids). Incidentally, Sydney's cold as hell today - winds that remind me of Wellington (not a bad memory).

    Oh, this is also too pertinent for words - Doctors prescribe drugs that don't work.

    Aw shit. Got a new pill this week and I thought it was workin' now I jus' dunno. :)
    To be completely honest, the hospital came up with the exact same suspicion as my acupuncturist with regard to my sensation ( acutely different to my right side) down the left side of my body. Once again I discover similarities amongst the different professions, just different approaches in fixing them.

  • Sacha,

    a monolith somewhere

    So long as there is someone left to thank for all the fish. (Hey, it was the most philosophical I could get right now.)

    Boil and Reduce to get close to the Source...

    Quite. The idea of meaninglessness is itself meaningless.

    and if meaning means sense
    ergo senselessness = e
    ...by gum!

    Something to chew over indeed...


    Ears lookin' achoo kid...

    We should probably leave a monolith somewhere...

    we don't need no steenkin' monoliths!
    Shibboleths that's what we need...
    so the hip replacements can have a ball...
    Well maybe a Rosetta Stone for the cognoscenti...

    ...but really once our transient standing waves have collapsed back into the unified field background noise (and all our monoliths and constructed conceits are regolith anything coming after us will probably want to forge its own way and not be led into the evolutionary cul de sacs, blind alleys and box canyons that we have explored and championed.

    Perhaps they'll toy with our coproliths.
