In the beginning was the sound
Middle English from ecclesiastical Latin biblia (the books)
Originally a diminutive of biblos (papyrus, scroll) of Semitic origin
An Old Testament
Machines only repeat the past but we human beings can create the future
The hardware of our bodies together with the software of our minds
can combine to become something absolutely fabulous
Not instant! - no! - Not instant!
Grind some beans! - for God's sake! - Grind some beans!
Instant coffee is just old beans that have been cremated
I don't want cremated beans!
I want them fresh - I want them new
I want the entire experience with added life force!!!
A New Testament
Instead of trying to create a machine which replicates adult-mind
we should be creating one which replicates baby-mind
If this machine received appropriate upgrades
it would become abstract-mind
Such a mind
would rapidly outstrip our feeble human capacities
Given the opportunity
abstract-mind would take total control
Once upon a time there will be
I saw a pure river of Water of Life clear as crystal
proceeding out of the Throne of God
On either side of the river was there the Tree of Life
and the leaves of the Tree were for the healing of the nations
Water of Life Throne of God Tree of Life
The stories are no longer real
They have become what they always were
Sounds to soothe a troubled child
The mind is everything
