"To realise the unimportance of time is the gate of wisdom."

Rest in peace, Anne…

Quote of the Day:

"On the anniversary of my burst aneurysm in October of 2004, many people have asked me what I've learned. I've written about this extensively in many of my earlier diaries, but I thought I'd sum it up here. You might even call this diary "What I Learned from the Sick Year" (to paraphrase of the diet book I am posting, one chapter at a time, every week on this website).
I guess the simplest way to put it is, you must live out of love. You must operate from a basic platform of loving other people. This must be your stance as you go through life."

~Anne Strieber, "You Must Live Out of Love"

Just in case you forgot, we've got a spaceship in orbit around Saturn sending us back photos of everything it's seeing...

Quote of the Day:

Mind has come up with this brilliant way of looking at the world — science — but it can’t look at itself. Science has no place for the mind. The whole of our science is based upon empirical, repeatable experiments. Whereas thought is not in that category, you can’t take thought into a laboratory. The essential fact of our existence, perhaps the only fact of our existence – our own thought and perception is ruled off-side by the science it has invented. Science looks at the universe, doesn’t see itself there, doesn’t see mind there, so you have a world in which mind has no place.

What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning
