Every step we take on Earth
takes us to a new world.
Every single footstep
lands on a floating bridge.

 Coffee in the Backyard - Chapter 342 comments
picture30 Oct 2003 @ 17:15
Into the first hour of darkness after sunset Sunday, October twelfth. A day in the cabin in the woods, or the adobe hut in the dry country, such as they may be as alternatives to the tent. Small flames bring forth spheres of transparent yellow light, galaxies apart, twinkling across the room. A continuous wave of rainfull storms swept across the river valley this week; the ground is full with fresh moisture and the sky is blue and cloudless today. A carpet of tiny green something-or-others is emerging amongst the little stones of the rock garden. Today is a good day to not be driving around on streets and highways. The forest and the campfire are here in this microcosm, and the moon is slightly different from the way it was last night.  More >

SANS LOGIQUE



Si Dieu nous fait à son image
Si c´était sa volonté
Il aurait dû prendre ombrage
Du malin mal habité
Qui s´immisce et se partage
L´innocence immaculée
De mon âme d´enfant sage

The fears of Brazil are not so much that the world is spinning out of control because of the system. Because the system is us.

What Brazil is really about is that the system isn't great leaders, great machinating people controlling it all. It's each person performing their job as one little cog in this thing. And Sam chooses to stay a little cog and ultimately he pays the price for that."

---Terry Gilliam (6/29/91)  More >

An ancient text written in a language no one understands and displaying unfamiliar constellations, the mysterious 'Voynich Manuscript' intrigues astronomers and code breakers alike. The 200-page tome is housed at the Yale library.  More >

A la belle impérieuse
L'amour, panique
De la raison,
Se communique
Par le frisson.

Laissez-moi dire,
N'accordez rien.
Si je soupire,
Chantez, c'est bien.

Si je demeure,
Triste, à vos pieds,
Et si je pleure,
C'est bien, riez.

Un homme semble
Souvent trompeur.
Mais si je tremble,
Belle, ayez peur.

(Victor Hugo)

 Synesthesia stretch and Tele-Synesthesia5 comments

"The computer is a spiritual machine"
—Umberto Eco


Tele-synaesthesia: presentation of a hypothesis
---Lecture by Doctor Hugo


Synopsis:The new media and the Internet enable us to experience different kinds of information which are of a specifically telematic nature and for this reason effectively differ from the usual forms of communication. By linking the concepts tele and synaesthesia to each other, we deal with the fact that the transmission of data creates a synaesthetic effect: tele-synaesthesia.  More >

 I Ching for writers3 comments

Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt thing is that the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a tatol mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Or

According to researchers at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be at the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole.


And it definitely doesn't matter one way or another in Chinese. The Chinese languages are essentially made of ideograms!  More >
