This one’s gonna be short and sweet. I suggest you head on over to Stungeye if you’re interested in a collective conciousness link round up. Once again my desire to jack into a computer to download knowledge is making me lust for the future. If only there was more time! If only there was less work! I’m a read-a-holic by the way, I can’t stop reading. I think I’m going to go on vacation to Ottawa in November just so that I can get away and read.
Anyways, a mate from Australia sent me some good advice – I suggest you all listen and take notes! Be wary of the tequila, they’re always bad news.
If one is finding it hard to find wonder in the world, I direct your attention to the heavenly skies above. One of the reasons I find it so hard to quit smoking is that I love the moments where it’s just me, my smoke and the clear empty sky above me. If you really try and take in the nightscape and realize that every single one of those points of light up there are either a star hundreds of light years away or a galaxy billions of light years away then it is a most humbling, wonderful experience. It’s important to get out of the city and the light pollution that exists therein – most of us city dwellers forget about the stars above – but they’re there, and they are wonderful.
A wise man told me once that great men talk about ideas, average people talk about events, and low people talk about other people. If you walk backwards down the stairs you’ll make less noise in some stairways. There’s an idea for you…

I filled out some personal profiles online today. I made one for LavaLife (in the intimate encounters section ^_^), and was in the process of filling out the best profile on Fark personals and it told me server error. Here’s what it says to me:
Please note: This personals site powered by Spring Street Networks will be temporarily unavailable as we perform maintenance to make the personals better than ever! We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.

I’ve been a little bit obsessed with the operation of the brain over the last few months. It blows my mind on a day to day basis that a complex network of neurons provides us with the faculties to perceive the world around us, to analyze our existence, to love, laugh, and lament all in a single thought. Nonetheless it all comes back down to interconnected neurons receiving impulses from our five senses, our I/O interface with the universe around us. Where does the soul reside then, if we do in fact have one? What happens when those neurons fire their last impulse and the world goes white around us? I have my theories, and I’ll attempt to explain some here.

I had a vision… a waking dream…
On my worst enemy I would not deem.
I couldn’t remove the image from my head,
it stayed until I wished I was dead.
Death it seems so fleetingly near,
a form of terror without peer.
I felt the need to settle the score,

I know that I’m a bright, I only hope that many of you are brights as well. It seems to me that the brights in this world are the thinkers, the ones who are not satisfied with the answers that are spoon fed to us. We brights must stick together.

What’s going on in China? Where are the voices of the chinese? Why does this country have a solitary voice? I really don’t know too much about China, but I feel that my life has had more brushes with this mysterious culture than the average North American. However I still feel that my personal contact with chinese people and their large percentage of our earthly population has been somewhat lacking. I’ve been chatting with a video gamer named DavisLee for over a year now but he has been quite restrained in showing his true ‘self’. I invite Davislee to tell me something about his life.. 😉

Please ignore. I’m testing some of the movable Type functionality.
