Oddities Abound


I'm not sure why, but the more I live the odder the world seems to become.

While I don't know if there is some destiny laid out for all of us, at times there seems to be some sort of pattern and strangely satisfying logical flow of events.

The world can seem even odder when you decide to follow the flow of science, things that people assume to be impossible may later turn out to be quite within the realm of reality.

Manned flight is great example, for the longest time only a fringe truly believed it possible, but like many great ideas it's time came and is now nearly a routine endeavor. The same with privately funded access to space, it's happened and being pushed right along.

That's not to say science is the answer. The way I see it, science is just the question, reality is the answer, and that requires the belief that you actually exist.... (if you want to get really confused, really fast try and think about how you can indisputably prove that). Be forewarned though, similar lines of thought have been responsible for mathematicians and philosophers going to the loony bin.

Free room and board and drugs, along with plenty of free time to do whatever I wanted to; and I wouldn't have to be around my family. Silver lining time....

Are you walking around humming "Counting flowers on the wall"? I so much am getting that tune stuck in my head from somewhere....
