  1. Let me think that question over and get back to you. Maybe I'll think it over. Maybe I'll get back to you. If I remember. ... Who did you say you were again? Never mind, not important.
  2. I'd explain it to you, but I fear your brain might explode.
  3. Blackmore is still very active. Check out her website. For myself, I'm an expert on the Kennedy Assassination. No joke, there's probably only a few thousand people on the planet who know as much as or more than I do. This was not so hard to accomplish, because sensible people never thought that there was honest evidence for a Kennedy assassination conspiracy, and it takes a certain obsessive mindset to keep on pushing when all that is found is trash. Biggest waste of time in my life.
  4. Hmm, thought this was deleted, but it appears "current" is playing multiple threads in parallel, and I didn't realize it. From a book I'm writing: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * An advocate for the existence of the immortal soul -- a "spiritualist", proposing the existence of intangible spirits and spirit worlds -- will point to the visions of those who have had "out-of-body experiences (OBE)" or "near-death experiences (NDE)" as proof. However, this is making an extraordinary claim on the basis of thin and arguable
  5. I'd recommend Susan Blackmore's DYING TO LIVE ... but you wouldn't like it.
  6. Maybe. But could it be that Mickey Mouse lives at the North Pole of Mars with his elves? Makes ya think, doesn't it?
  7. It's just a Gish gallop. As has been pointed out, it's easy for a baby to make a mess, but it can be a lot of work to clean it up. I recognized early on that AFP was trying to talk way over my head -- when it was obvious he was well under it.
  8. I was tempted to say a few unkindly things myself -- but AFP tends to come unglued when I do that. Not worth the trouble.
  9. JMJ, I would be much more generous and say that it is par, and couldn't be anything else. The only people who ask questions about the nature of time are theoretical physicists, and it is effectively a conversation among themselves. We may listen in as a matter of curiosity, but it's like listening to an orchestra when we can't play any musical instruments. We may like the performance or not, but that's all we can say about it. We can't tell the orchestra how to do a better job if we don't like it, because we don't know the job. The question of the nature of time is of no practical rele
  10. "You better beat it -- I hear they're going to tear you down and put up an office building where you're standing. You can leave in a taxi. If you can't get a taxi, you can leave in a huff. If that's too soon, you can leave in a minute and a huff." -- Groucho Marx
  11. Further comment: there is an infinite sequence of every possible arrangement ( ... 01010101 ... 001001001001 ... 000100010001 ... ) in the random stack of cards -- but the odds of stumbling into one of them limits on zero.
  12. Well, matter is converted to radiation in stars, eventually the stars fade out, and that's all she wrote for the Universe. "Welcome to Millaways!"
  13. The old "heat death of the Universe"? Hardly news that the Universe is running out of free energy. BTW, does Oxford do a lot more science than Cambridge? I recollect seeing a lot more mentions of research out of Oxford, but I could be wrong.
  14. Yeah ... it's hard to keep up with everything that's said in threads. I find that AFP is inclined to ask questions -- but when given an answer, simply stops for a moment, then thinks up another question.
