On February 20, 1974, science fiction author Philip K. Dick began a journey into an otherworldly state of being. He was no longer just writing about the fantastic, but entered an utterly strange, strangely compelling, far country of experience. He wrote that he felt the presence of a twin, whom he called Thomas, who he thought must have lived in apostolic days. Many of his thoughts, which he did not neglect to put on paper, are scattered, almost confused, a man who was reaching beyond reality and trying to put the things he found in terms ill suited for the concrete.

How physics connects to personal happiness...
In the beginning it was exactly like ten thousand blogs of interest to nobody. It is now a little more interesting. For the last 50 days, there has been a post every five days, regularly alternating on the subjects of literature, philosophy, psychology, and metaphysics. I have many partially completed and nearly completed and complete posts to follow on this schedule, perhaps indefinitely. After reading this Metatalk thread, and in particular these two (1,2) comments, I have decided to take the plunge and post here. If you want to look at one of those particular subjects, here is a link to a post on literature, here is a link to a post on philosophy, here is a link to a post on psychology, and here is a link to a post on metaphysics. In tribute to the aesthetics of Matthew Haughey, I have the closest blue background to Metafilter blue available on the base blogger palette.
