I ordered this, Syn's hardcover Principia, and pre-ordered the Perry Bible Fellowship book.

In 3-5 days I will be illuminated.

I really like this.

his prayers were answered in the form of a question
in this regard a dialogue was formed

The voice this is written in reminds me of the scene in A Scanner Darkly when the guy is trying to kill himself with pills and wine, and the voiceover is narrating his actions.

I think a few illustrations would really compliment this piece.

throughout his days - he met a number of people who were unafraid of death
it grew clear after some time that this had nothing to do with pain
and that pain - by definition - was not enjoyable without exception

I think the double-negative in line 2 here is confusing.

pain requires one to pay attention

because it is so demanding - it is avoided at all costs by a people who resent being told what to do

the lesson of pain is humility

great stanza here

he tilted her 23 degrees on her axis and shone down for half a day before she turned over

Another great image

we die laughing
not at anything in particular
its just that the situation is ridiculous

sympathy there, brotha

if you find yourself facing something that you need to do
and you find yourself not wanting to do it
the only real choice you have is to trap yourself

one of the great lessons of fasting is that the lack of food and energy causes one to determine what actions are important and significant
and which actions can be done without

this is one of many examples of how a person can trap himself

very reminiscent of one of my favorite passages from Illuminatus
where the guy gets rid of all his stuff and becomes homeless to escape the trap of money
and puts glass in his shoes to escape the trap of fear of pain

good stuff dude

yeah I'm pretty sure I would know it if it was cut with something. People don't really cut pot with anything (as far as I can tell) - what would be the point? the amount of weight you'd need to add to increase the price would be visible.

On my vacation to Amsterdam, we went to this marijuana museum. Our tour guide was saying that the headache, confusion, general denseness that people get from pot is due to the pesticides used on the crops. The pesticides are necessary if the grower is harvesting a huge field of cannabis, but they create most of the sensations that people don't like about being high. She recommended homegrown, organic pot, and directed us to a few places in Amsterdam where we could sample some. I must say, it didn't leave me with the headache and tongue-tied-ness that I got after smoking at the Bulldog cafe, a larger chain of coffee shops.

I hear ya Rev, especially about focusing SO HARD on what I "should" be doing with my downtime.

For me, I think it's healthy to try to focus on being action oriented and making "progress" - because I have a tendency to go into zombie autopilot mode with my days off. Just sort of cruise the web, play video games, shoot the shit, and all of the sudden it's Monday and I didn't really feel like I spent my time well.

I had a major personal revelation regarding this last year. I identified this state (which I call the Void), which is basically my robot. When I'm in the Void, I'll eat ramen noodles rather than walking to the corner store to pick up food. I'll watch entire commercial breaks because I'm too lazy to surf. I'll check my e-mail, then the message boards I read, then my e-mail, then the message boards I read, back and forth, with no direction or energy. I can pass hours just idling. When I try to remember what I was doing during that time I have a foggy spot. There was little stress, but it wasn't really that entertaining.

And after I've had a lot of GO GO GO time, that idling is reallly good. But I'm just now rising out of a rut I recently realized I've been in for months. And I want to escape all that voidtime.

But that's all just me. I applaud your tea leaves and your just being.

everything in moderation.

The tea you mention is a good chaser.  :p
