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
an eternally-infinite


Without emotion
 Without instinct
Without love


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
