Precursor

Prolegomena: If there are other universes, are they limited in number or infinite? Parallel or alternate? Separate or accessible? Stephen Hawking seems to think that some day we might be able to move among them. As Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz supposedly said, "In the infinite mind of an infinite God might there not exist an infinity of universes." Were persons or beings in the past and also in the present doing so? One wonders whether we should wish it to be so.

POSTED: 12:55 a.m. EST, February 3, 2007

"The evidence for warming having happened on the planet is unequivocal," said U.S. government scientist Susan Solomon, who also is a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

A short break from gravity

GOR came up in the chat room recently. I thought this page might be amusing: http://www.rdrop.com/users/wyvern/data/poseurs.html

Hook in the Book

Those cynical eyes opened a bit wider. “You read!”
“My parents infected me before I knew any better. There was no bedtime, as long as I was reading a book.”
“What splendid parents.”

Robert A. Heinlein, Spider Robinson
Variable Star
