Realities, world views, multiple dimensions. We don't all seem to live in the same world. I find that fascinating. Reality seems to be an increasingly fluid phenomenon. I should probably start by transcending my own matrix.

  • Alexander Chislenko wrote an interesting essay about identity, from a trans-humanist sort of perspective. "I always wondered how far I can evolve without stopping being myself... It seems possible that the identity issue can be the ultimate limit to growth." Sasha (short for Alexander in Russian) was a person I considered a friend and ally, although we had relatively few conversations. He died in 2000. I always felt honored, but slightly embarrassed about being included in his Great Thinkers and Visionaries page. Sasha also was a pioneer in various things I'm very interested in, and I'm sorry I didn't work more closely with him - collaborative filtering, intelligent agents, enhanced reality and more.

  • In "The Law of Convenience" Jerry Michalski says some intelligent things about the ecomics of convenience. "Every additional step that stands between people's desires and the fulfillment of those desires greatly decreases the likelihood that they will undertake the activity".

  • Hazel Henderson: Wanted: Regime change in the USA.

  • French engineers unveil an air-powered car, which runs on compressed air and doesn't pollute. It costs about $1.50 to fill it up.

  • From the Chicago Sun-Times: Burlington Homes in Bakersfield, California has announced that it will no longer sell homes to lawyers. They say their "experience is that home buyers who are also lawyers threaten litigation (requiring significantly greater management time as well as legal fees and resolution costs) at a dramatically higher rate than home buyers who are not lawyers." A lawyer is suing.

    "It's either the wallpaper or me. One of us has to go." -- Oscar Wilde on his deathbed

    Hi TonocEhying the comment from Josh Harris back in July 10th, could you let us know how you worked thru your tibial tendonitis injury? I had just come to the point where I realized trail running was the answer for me, (as in for what to do with my life!) only to be stricken down with this stubborn injury and haven't run for 6 months. :(A.

    Estranho:Tem alguns RBs e WRs no Free Agency que podem causar um belo impacto no time que forem.Eu, por exemplo, queria o Sims-Walker no meu Chargers. Acho difícil acontecer, mas vamos torcer pra isso, estamos desfalcados de WR de impacto (com exceção do V.Jax, mas esse não dura muito no time me#o2&s8m30;). http://jsrmpvzaun.com [url=http://adwcymzvx.com]adwcymzvx[/url] [link=http://gznerwtyj.com]gznerwtyj[/link]
