Whether you're paranoid or arrogant...

Did you realise that you have your back to half the Universe?

If you subscribe to the theory that the Universe is a closed loop then you have your back to all of the Universe or none of it ...or both.

Whether the Universe is against you or you're against the Universe; this certainly reinforces the egocentric/homocentric world view.

Trivial deep thoughts

When a tree falls in the forest, does its mother come to kiss the boo-boo?

Why did the chicken cross the road?
DNA? Upbringing? Or was it hatched from a cross-the-road egg?

A Pontius decision is letting someone decide for you and take on the risk.

Teutonic plates is the crockery that earth-shattering german gods eat from.

Given that great minds think alike and fools seldom differ, these are all my own work...sad eh?

A Hidden Agenda...

I have to admit I have what amounts to an obession to conspiracy theories...I would love to believe that there are secret societies that manipulate mankind to their own ends. It is sad and nieve and borders on mysticism but a good conspiracy does brace one's skepticism.

I have read Robert Anton William and Robert Shea’s Illuminatus! trilogy, Umberto Eco’s Foucault Pendulum, Holy Blood and Holy Grail, and the Templar Revelation and now see whereof the CIA plagarised its mission statement.

I guess part of this obession is that history is an appalling litany of bullies and robber barons and pretending these violators were the poor pawns of some masters of subtlety and secrecy redeems it from bad farce to decent drama.

Then again if historians had recorded the churn of culture and science instead politics and conflict I could be sitting here with nothing to occupy me.

Anyway back to looking for the fnords...
