   RE: [xml-dev] Draft US Government policyon XML Namespaces

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I read it in Aleister Crowley a very long 
time ago although I am told it is older than 
his scribblings.  First there is Nothing.  
If there is Anything besides Nothing, there is 
Everything that is.  Blame Cantor for the rest.

Then there is John Sowa's lattice soup 
or topic maps.  If Nothing is Sacred, 
do we pray for no reason or to No Thing?


We make a theory, then we get a stick and 
beat other monkeys into agreeing to 
act as if that it were the truth.

Or, we make a theory and act on it, and 
other monkeys imitate our actions 
because our theory makes us act in ways 
that are observably successful.

Choose wisely.

Yeah, len's in one of his moods. It 
is the smell of bodies rotting in the 
desert, antiquities smashed beyond 
recovery, and the gloating of the 
merely overarmed while tribal 
hatred boils back to the surface in 
the land that gave us civilization. 
It makes me nauseous.  I apologize 
and will take this elsewhere.
