Triiiiipeee dood! Real trippy. I'm gonna go get a pen and write all this
down. In the meantime, I think your synapses could use a good 104+ octane
spark, so I'm going to recommend one of the most highly regarded
philosophical treatises still making the rounds at Cambridge University: A
Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Doug Adams. The English think we're far
too metaphysical in the US you see, which is a much nicer way of saying
we're all full of shit, or at least full of ourselves, but the English being
the English are far too graceful to come right out and say it, and I tend to
agree, so it shouldn't surprise anyone too much that an Englishman like
Adams has reduced the BIG mystery to a single two-digit integer...47. I like
that. No Grand Unified Theory for Adams and all those Cambridge dons. 47
works them. Me too. How about anyone else out there? Does 47 work for you?
And no wisecracks like "What an odd number", and stuff like that. Let's keep
this discussion serious, huh? ;-)
