In that case, I fully, freely and obligingly fulfill my duty.

A great idea! I’m sure I’m not your only reader who’d get into that. Looking forward to learning more of your theory for sure. Need reminders?

Seems to me to be the ideal choice of a coupla words. As encompassing and comprehensive as I’d care to be, especially in light of the fact that I suspect I feel as “fuck it”-ish right now as he probably did. Robert Anton Wilson summed it up perfectly, LOL. The man’s a fuckin’ genius.

Jordan, thanks for the compilation of mind-stirring quotes. However, I consider your words contained in the second last paragraph to be as profound and noteworthy as any of those attributed to the great characters you quote; a compelling perspective on the responsibility of artists, writers and intellectuals.

What do I think of this image? Hm. Well, with a little animation it’d be a decent screensaver. Other than that, I can only guess the thread-like lines connecting and converging on various points, represent scientific centres exchanging and sharing information, data (collaborating)? If so, I’m lost as to how depicting it in such a form lends any significance or relevance. Then again, there remains a great deal I have yet to learn.

A great read. The man has insight. His emerging “thought experiment” has me thinking he’s on to a potentially effective national project. Scary to the powers that be who might get to read it though. I wish him all the best.

Wise. Yeah, probably, given his rep. But the concept I get from the quote seems so stark and, well, blah!. Just seems devoid of anything other than a desperate strategy to exist and hope for no more than to put together something to provide basic survival. But then, now that I think of it, I may have just described life’s reality for half the planet’s population.

Great stuff! I’ve been non-committally surfing and reading for an hour or so and then was yanked awake by this piece – thanks for the eye-opener James. Always a treat to learn something new; I just learned a great deal (reminded of some basics as well) when I was least expecting it. Great way to kick off a day of writing.

I had fun reading it. Even found a coupla points in Adam’s self-disclosure to which I can certainly relate. Not sure I learned anything new but was reminded that taking a few moments to read something someone else has written in a way that brings even the tiniest amount of levity and fun to my moment, is productive in my pursuit of happiness. I don’t do it near enough. Thanks Adam.

Wow! Thought-provoking, to say the least. Meanwhile, I wonder if the emotion of fear, like any other emotion, is neither good nor bad; is only an issue depending on the extent to which I allow it to dictate my behaviour. Perhaps any peace I get to enjoy in my life is in direct proportion to how adept I become in doing what I consider “right” – despite how I feel? Not avoiding fear, but conquering it instead, by learning to withstand the temptation to let it run me. Hm.
