the unclinging

have you noticed how
... once
you directly perceive the
various fabrications arising from your
various senses - including
your intellect -
you then may easily perceive how these
various fabrications give rise to the
various intentionalities
informing and driving
your desires for stimulation and satiation of these
various senses of
and how it then becomes optional
whether you allow
such intentionalities arising from
your senses - including
your intellect –
to continue fabricating
the momentum of
your existence here and
your existence now


... just as the living
form typically requires some
form of nutriment that it may continue
... once
you directly perceive the various
forms of
your consciousness, of
your perception and of
your feeling
... and their origin
your choice to cling to this origin
- or to not so cling -

degrees of wetness

If you are a large sponge sloshing from point A to point B in the rain, do you become more or less wet depending on how fast you walk?

Returning from the Pacific Northwest, where we have engaged in an humble experiment to judge the veracity of at least two of the obviously infinite number of possible answers to this question, our small team was recently able to ascertain -- using a single unemployed Maxwellian Daemon (nicknamed "Worbert Niener" and fortuitously available due to the USA's enthusiastic and patriotic Dark Ages Retro Movement Act) to move the holes about within one of the team member's pet Peruvian Ambulatory Sponge (Spongatus Perambulatus), which happens to be precisely of the size 1m x 0.5m x 0.5m -- that it makes no difference whatsoever at what velocity the sponge moves about or even whether it ever arrives, except in the degenerate case wherein v approaches c, at which point said mobile holes are insufficiently round to avoid overlap with the enumerable transiting droplets. At this juncture, however, with mass approaching infinity, the number of contacted droplets per sponge become an infinitesimal fraction and, per Cantor, it is easily demonstrated that there is no wetting whatsoever.
Therefore, in both the wetted and unwetted situation, no wetting occurs.
(disclaimer: For the sake of simplicity, reciprocity effects have been ignored, and droplet size has been assumed larger than 1.616 × 10^^-35 m. or so. Also ignored is the trivial situation involving an Aleph-One number of raindrops being absorbed by an Aleph-null sponge.)

[_] m & m [_]

Your [_] looks great, but I'll need to print it out for doodling purposes when there's time for a complete read; perhaps at a future iteration?
At this point my suspicion is that the fungibility of [_] will be a reflection of its cleverly crafted (and, more importantly, entertaining) tales, aphorisms and metaphors; but that the perceived relevance and longevity of [_] will be determined by the quality of its expositions...

In particular, how cogent and detailed are its (preferably predictive) elucidations regarding morality; e.g., intricacies and dynamics of morality, the border conditions between public and private morality, between historical and modern morality, between canonical and adaptive morality, and between theological and secular paradigms.

I personally believe a mathematical appendix or two with a few fairly simple delineations of tools for building a path forward would be appropriate, but am resigned to being overruled in such opinions.

mumble, mumble (mootness & extra-spatio-temporal gedanken space)

i respect your hypothesis.

and yet, in gedanken-space, the two realities have considerable overlap in the spatio-temporal region between arriving at t___y's house and departing h_t c___k .

therefore your unwillingness to join may be somewhat moot.

minions ennui

speaking of both those
beautiful loudlies, passing
yeah, flying in
, staying here
while delivering this talk
, visiting such minions
. in close brushes such as these
pitiful through thoughts hushed
, hear peaches grow or
musky glowering smell this
pleasure too
as something fad.



ennui once
long forgotten
, lounges a tad
and faded

minimal animal

dear thief
did you ask it politely
for the gift of
it's life
or does mere animal
eat animal?

dear thief
is your prey merely
your most minimal enemy

home's distance

drifting gulls above land and sea
all that has been
all that shall be

partially tubular

amid some selves of
partial tubularity,
though you can't see it from here, or

Library Planet, books of woman
upon various high horses
high prospect,
upon shelves of various selves leaving

no choice although

librarian invasion occurs as a
getaway down fractured cliffs curved
into fractal infinities whereupon books
below rely upon stealth
rather (more than
they do upon) innocence
