  1. What is your perception of American history? How would you describe it?
  2. Can all days get their own Wikipedia or encyclopaedia page? Days are made up of thoughts, routine activities, internet discussions and internet browsing, business meetings, university lectures, watching television, cooking food, reading books, travelling to and fro, shopping, working, heated arguments, police investigations, political scandals, news coverage, parties, revisiting old memories, looking at the night sky, making scientific discoveries etc.. What if all of this was accounted for on Wikipedia - for every day of every year?
  3. Hi everyone - especially those who are interested in slavic history and slavic religion(s) ... It seems that a previously unknown slavic shrine was found in a cave near Ilirska Bistrica, Slovenia - said to be dedicated to Perun (or its local apparition Kresnik) - with an interesting petroglyph of this slavic deity. Here is a 'paper' describing it. If true, this is quite a discovery, as there are very few (if any) extant depictions of slavic deities and gods. Any thoughts? A picture of this petroglyph of 'Perun':
  4. If anything can be simulation, or computation, does it stand to reason that any human event in the universe can be a computer, including World War II?
  5. Whether it's Watergate, the Jurassic period, the history of the planet Venus or the state of California, can any history in the universe be undone by human behaviour on the internet?
  6. Is it something that could happen: all of the UK being stood in front of a derelict house in the state of North Carolina?
  7. Could the entire history of the universe be the attempt by God to remember its identity, including in that identity WWE history?
  8. Notwithstanding biology and psychological needs, could someone remain in the same spot for 10 years - a spot of ground no greater than three metres long in every direction?
  9. Will the United States likely be a fascist state by 2020?
  10. This is like teddy bears and planets. What is the scope of causation?
  11. Why do people have histories, when before any history someone can take the piss?
  12. Can physical forces have biographies, with chapters? If people can have biographies, and people are relative to gravity, is it fair to suggest that gravity should get a biography? Suppose gravity between 2003 and 2007.
  13. Is it possible, that anyone who lived 1,000 years ago will be able to write movie reviews in the future? Take a film like Guilty as Sin, or Halloween 6, or contemporary films like The Force Awakens - in the future, can these movies be reviewed by participants of the American civil war, or the citizens of ancient Rome?
  14. Is this possible, relative to dimension?
  15. I encountered a take on the history of religion I’d not before, in this Feb 2015 Lightspeed magazine transcript of a Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy interview of recent Hugo and Nebula award-winning writer Ann Leckie: Of course, I went looking in history, which I do very frequently. One of the narratives that is common in our culture, for historical reasons, but that is massively oversimplified, is the Roman pagan relationship to Christianity and to Judaism. To a lot of ancient European pagans, they considered them — Christians in particular — to be atheists. If you think about it, if you’re a po
  16. I wrote the following about this great modern historical fiction writer and place my post in this sub-section, FYI.-Ron Price, Australia ---------------------------------------- THANKING E.L. DOCTOROW Part 1: The acclaimed American novelist and playwright E. L. Doctorow has given writers like myself many writing tips. He died two weeks ago, on 21 July 2015, in Manhattan at the age of 84 due to complications from lung cancer. I write the following out of appreciation for a writer who, for the most part, remained for out on the periphery of my reading experience in the last 60 years. I have f
  17. GETTING KNOWLEDGE Part 1: Reflecting as I now do on my 65 year reading life from 1949 to 2014, I found Darwin’s way of reading a book of interest. He “often annotated heavily, prepared his own index of interesting passages, broke a book in half at the binding if it was too heavy and stopped to write about it in his notebooks.” He showed, as Howard Gruber puts it: “a man at work using books as tools for getting knowledge, not as exhibitions of knowledge already crystallised”.1 Gillian Beer characterizes Darwin’s reading style, as “full of questions and exclamations, enthusiastic rebutta
  18. HANNIBAL I write below, in this somewhat lengthy series of 3 prose-poems, brief sketches of three Hannibals. They are Hannibals whom I came to know about in some detail in the last two decades, 1994 to 2014, from the age of 50 to 70. This 20 year period involved the last 5 years of my working life as a teacher-lecturer and extensive commitments in Baha'i administration, as well as the first 15 years of my retirement from FT, PT and most volunteer-work, after a 50 year student-and-employment life: 1949 to 1999. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
