Frost the Snowman

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

- Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening – Robert Frost

A Hole Theory …

Excerpt:

In the chapters above we presented our views in a rather infor­mal set­ting, trying to show the philosophical importance and conse­quences of a realist attitude toward holes rather than spelling out a full-fledged theory of holes.
In this appendix we attempt to address this task more di­rectly by summarizing some basic tenets of our account in a rather systematic – though by no means complete – fashion. For convenience, we divide the presentation into four main sec­tions:
(1) a preliminary ontological part, which introduces the basic binary relation “is a hole in (or through)” along with some rel­evant facts;
(2) a mereo­logical part, which systematizes some funda­men­tal prin­ci­ples governing the interplay between the host-hole and the part-whole relations;
(3) a topological part, which summa­rizes some basic facts con­cern­ing surfaces and the taxonomy of holes; and
(4) a morphological part, focusing on the fact that ob­jects with holes constitute – as we have put it – the morphologi­cal mani­fold of fil­lable things.

….

The underly­ing logic is deliberately left vague, as after all we think holes are ut­terly neutral in this respect. A preferred al­ternative is some sort of a free logic, where im­proper de­scrip­tions and other pos­sibly empty expres­sions can be admitted bona fide; however, every­thing that follows could in prin­ciple be dealt with within the frame­work of a standard first-order logic, with i treated as an im­proper symbol. In ad­di­tion, we as­sume familiarity with some ba­sic princi­ples of ex­ten­sional mereo­logy and topol­ogy.

Zenophobic Episode 285 …

So I bought this toolbox …

But the tool to open the box is inside the box …

“To daddy, the real world gets fainter and fainter every day”  – Homer

Adorable …

It occurs to me that humans busy themselves partaking in three predominant endeavors …

1. Doing stuff.

2. Thinking about stuff they’ve done.

3. Thinking about stuff they’ll do.

I bet someone’s doing something as we speak … definitely thinking about it … a lot.

Lovely …

Nothing Really

The Blinding

“I can feel it coming

In the air tonight

Oh lord …”

 

And now for something completely indifferent …

 

Can you close your eyes and have vision?

Can you stop your mind so you can think?

Can you feel outside your senses?

Can you imagine what you already know?

 

The following is but a passing possibility …

Tis nothing but a nonsensical breach …

Tis by all accounts a dream without sleep …

A fleeting whim …

 

So should you feel adventurous or bored …

Take this trip along me for the giggles …

And stop all thoughts …

And close your eyes at every opportunity …

 

And imagine this …

 

Imagine there is a sphere …

This sphere is dark like a black ball…

This sphere is devoid of light …

This sphere is real …

This sphere is what we perceive as our universe …

 

Now imagine if you could …

That you could step away from your own forest …

Step away from your own dark sphere …

So you can observe your own dark bubble …

Away from our dark universal forest …

 

And when you do …

You notice this …

 

That the dark sphere which we call our universe …

Is enveloped by another sphere …

There’s another bubble surrounding our dark bubble …

And it is made of light …

 

A light so bright it is blinding …

A light so bright and so beautiful …

A light to end all lights …

A light that is more your true self than your true self …

More all of our selves than our true selves …

Our home light …

Our beacon …

Our way home ….

Our ONE …

 

Now imagine the intelligence …

The intelligence that made this so …

So close yet so far …

The obstacle it put before us …

Our true self hidden in the self …

 

What clue would it give us to make our way home?

What does it say?

What does it mean?

 

If you have come this far, perhaps you will consider this …

 

There is a dark sphere …

There is a dark bubble …

And it is enveloped by light …

 

How do we know?

 

THE STARS!!!

 

If there was a dark bubble enveloped by light …

And one, the one, the intelligence, were to clue those who dwell in darkness that light surrounds them …

He would make pinpricks in their dark bubble so that they could glimpse the light from the light that surrounds them …

 

THE STARS

 

They are the pinpricks …

So bright is the light that surrounds us that the smallest pinpricks of light, our stars, fill our dark bubble with light.

 

I have no idea if this is cosmospiritually true …

But in a universe in which that which is outside of us is the path to that which is within us it is as true as true can get …

 

Because in this case it is true of us before it is true of our universe …

You know this …

I know this …

It is our primary knowledge …

 

We dwell as tourists in our darkness …

Surrounded by light we are so close to we can taste it …

So close yet so far …

 

Too good to be amateurs not good enough to be professionals …

Existential limbo …

 

I don’t want to start any blasphemous rumors …

All this is is a childish thought …

 

But in this moment it feels right to me …

 

What we see is what we see …

The light … the light envelops us … and we know it is there because the stars tell us so

Webinar for consideration

In 1957, Hugh Everett III believed he had solved the infamous measurement problem in quantum mechanics by explaining probability as an illusion in an evolving, deterministic universe of universes. His “relative state” theory horrified Niels Bohr, who treated Everett’s doctoral thesis (written under the guidance of John Wheeler) with disbelief and scorn.

Everett’s theory was reborn as the “many worlds” interpretation of quantum mechanics in the 1970s. Yet despite his idea’s growing popularity, Everett never wrote another word about quantum mechanics. Instead, he worked on military operations research, designing nuclear missile targeting software. In this lecture, investigative journalist and Everett biographer Peter Byrne traces how Everett’s theory evolved over the course of his often-troubled life.
