back to the pool table model, the balls are able to mold the bumps and dips on the table, right?

I've played on a few really fucked out old tables in my time. The balls are how the bumps and dips get there in the first place.

Well, a mixture of that and high speed human faces :evil:

if time were to stop, then how long would it stop for?

I been mulling this over in my head all day and I'm pretty sure it'd be twenty eight and half minutes

This IS before sunday. Why hasn't he posted them  :argh!:

To clarify: I'm not really sitting in a tizzy wondering what to do next. I just feel things could be taken further. Exploring the world outside, so to speak.

It's already been done but seems to have stagnated some time around the 1950's and rehashed and rewritten ad nauseum, ever since. I can't help thinking there's a better way to do it than invoking that dreaded 'M' word.

The metaphor for me is a good one. I like it a lot but, having said that, it is only useful when one is imprisoned. I believe it's possible to escape from the state described by the BIP, 'jailbreak' as the saying goes. From that point on a new model is required because the BIP has served it's purpose and doesn't really offer a way to progress. It's still useful as a reminder that, at any point, you could slip up, forget what you've learned and end up back 'in jail'

I know we've been over this before re: the negative connotations of the phrase 'prison' but I really think the BIP would be best served as part of a .... erm .... duology (okay I give in, what the fuck is the correct term for a series of two books?)

From my point of view, anyway, other than some weird philanthropic mission to help others escape (not really my style) there is no real way to progress, it's almost like it's saying "Hey! Congratulations, you broke out" and I'm like, "so now what?"

I think there are a few of us here who have broken out. Anyone have any thoughts on what to do next, or does the BIP just end with "they all lived happily ever after, in jail"?

And before you all start jumping down my throat, I know I'm still trapped by the mechanism described by the BIP. The very fact that I am aware of this is the escape of which I speak. Not true release from bondage but enough of a release to make the prison behave like a whole different animal.

Make them heavy hamster balls. Steerable, but hard.

We have a winnar!

Especially when you consider that the plexiglass is going to distort what you see outside :wink:

The astrophysicists seem fairly certain at this point this week that the universe is infinite.  The reasoning for this is beyond me though.

fixd for accuracy

Order and Chaos seem to operate on the same principle as that other old chestnut - good and evil.

Purely subjective but seductively objective to the untrained eye.

The human mind is, in essence, one of the most advanced pattern recognition algorithms on the face of the planet. It's so high-level it's even convinced itself it has a soul, just by processing random shit. You show it some clouds, it'll see faces and animals and all sorts of shit. You show it a universe and ... well ... this is what happens  :lulz:

I got you're point, sans explanation, really. But the OP made me just about spew laughing nonetheless. :mittens: for the absurdity of it all  :lulz:

Aneristic or Eristic it's YOU who imposes that experience over the underlying framework. The framework we'll never see or understand.

For me it becomes a choice - Order or chaos. For most people it isn't a choice, they see order or chaos and don't realise they're projecting. That's what makes me different from most people, imo, I decide whether I want to see a pattern and follow it, or if I want to see totally random shit and experience the rush of it.

"Make up your mind" - I love that expression

It strikes me as amusing that it was christianity which, even if it couldn't take all the credit, certainly played a huge part in overseeing the demise of the roman empire and now, as the american empire is crumbling, almost before it's even got started, we see the cult of jehovas bastard zombie, rearing it's retarded head again.

AFAIK america is the only place where this dumbass bullshit has any clout. The rest of the world are just kinda staring in awe and giggling to themselves. Except for the turbaniac nations, who are still ranting and raving about whatever dumbass bullshit it is they believe in.

God bless christianity and all who sail off the edge of the world in her :lulz:
