interesting read. i'm not all that far into it yet, but he comes off as more down to earth than many other 2K12 authors i have seen.


pinchbeck?  down to earth?  really?

that guy rubs me entirely the wrong way.  to me he comes across as an opportunist, and a male chovinist, but that's just from my (limited) reading of him




i can see definitely see him as an opportunist, but hey everyone's got to eat.

i guess in a way any person who talks about the end of time is never really "down to earth."  :crazy:

so i'll take that back, let's just say: i don't think he goes "over the edge." :sun:

:earth: :yinyang: :shineon:

Alfred Korzybski - Science and Sanity
awesome work, first out out in the 1930s.
I probably wouldn't be reading it if Robert Anton Wilson had not been so influenced by him as to write about his work.

I've only read Dick's Do Andoids Dream of Electric Sheep?, but I enjoyed it a lot. Don't know too much about him as an author though, but I might need to check out a few other titles. Any specific recommendations for him?

definitely check out Valis. It's the only Dick book I've read so I don;t know how it compares to his others, but I enjoyed it immensely. apparently it's more like a twisted autobiography than pure fiction.

:thumbup: I probably read that one once every couple months.

I just finished and am re-reading some sections of Uriels Machine by Robert Lomas and Christopher Knight, it talks about megalithic sites in the United Kingdom, ancient forecasting tools, early calenders and time keeping, solstices etc. It talks about the great flood, the Books of Enoch, the Grooved Wear People and early language. Id recommend it.

I agree 100%. I remember trying to read that when it first came out.

I'm trying to read The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, but I left my copy halfway across the united states. It might be a month or two before it gets shipped to me.

So, in the mean time, I've discovered Italo Calvino. I'm reading Marcovaldo right now, and it's delightful. It's about one working-class man's experiences each season, as he tries to follow the simple dreams of his imagination. =]

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.
