Thoughts on being a part of this blog

March was a very good month. A very good month for postings anyway.

One step leads to the next and I’m suddenly part of the flow of consciousness that was then or is it now?

I’m floating along my own stream, gathering flotsam along the way, caught in the occasional eddy that holds me circling until it eventually allows me to move forward after considerable exertion on my part. But always there is the possibility to go back to the beginning or even to venture to beginnings before I became a part of this egregore that is the blog.

I have always loved Lewis Carroll’s world and now I live in it.

Woodsprite: Erm, yes!

Ooops! Got a bit carried away there! I think it was all that talk of Nietzsche and Beckett back in March that infected me with a fit of poetry!

I'll feel better (and no doubt a bit red faced) in the morning.

"Have you not done tormenting me with your accursed time! It's abominable! When! When! One day: Is that not enough for you? One day he went dumb, one day I went blind, one day we'll go deaf, one day we were born, one day we shall die, the same day, the same second, is that not enough for you?

They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more."

Beckett was a genius!

This was a really nice post that Woodsprite wrote! I liked it and Iunderstand where you are coming from with it
I am shocked at the Birth astride a Grave. It is dated March of this year and I thought I read allof your posts Karl,but no. Im confused, how did I miss this? For me this tunnels very deep,has impact huger then the scientific. but that is probably as I am not a very great student of science! However reading this makes me not able to sit still in a grand way. Im hyperacitvated and now I want to read this thesis, all of it as soon as possible.Id probably do well to add > [that is if the professor is kind enough to permit it].. I guess I wont be able to see the lecture unless it comes to NYC or I go to UK. I am afraid to go near the Nietzsche because now I feel i missed a lot of posts and I would think comments are closed now a season later. That sounds like Zarathustra.[vision and riddle]. Transvaluation of values I prefer to revaluation because I am a pretty big adherent of conservatism. Important to keep the classical elements and then let them surmount themselves and then tyou get lasting and deep rooted change for future generational impact. Karl I thought you were a scientific transvaluation soldier {sorry for the yankee part, that I make reference to Larouche trans-American politics here!}and you really managed to one-up or i guess outdid yourself now . Because it looks to me now like you are in mode to do it in a deeper way as cultural-political trans-valuing with a science platform or backdrop. If I read correctly and dont confuse myself or jump too far ahead of myself here! I dont really know what to say about you being a Beckett scholar. Its almost too impressive or something. But much thanks for the tip off to that bit of thesis excerpting. I am sorry I missed posting commendatory comments on such earlier impacting posts, Andrew

I guess I better add I'm sorry for putting such long remarks belatedly for a closed out post on a new post and I didnt mean to make a messy job of it at the same time!But I never saw such wizardry and antic writing like Im seeing here and now with the Beckett. I am sure sorry i missed it at its time.

Andrew: Thank you Andrew, I'm glad you enjoyed my Beckett post, and I'm sure you would enjoy my thesis and lecture I have put together. I do hope to get this filmed in a theatre setting at some point.

Your comments on my writing are very humbling, thank you very much.

There have been many excellent and important posts on this blog over the last year and more, and I will try to link back to the best ones wherever I can.
