Yesterday, I finally had an opportunity to have lunch with a young woman
I took a liking to about two years ago.
During lunch, our meandering conversation touched upon "past lives"
(vis-a-vis the possibility of memories being encoded genetically, and
where instinct was cited as a possible example), as well as coincidences
like yours, (where she offered an eerie one of her own).
In response, I suggested that, if the universe is a giant fractal and as
such is "self-similar" in its growths, we might have done the same
things before and that what we might (also) be picking up are echoes or
those times (as represented by some fractal budding/branching that I
drew on a napkin).
> to the dads dismay, we'd plug our electric guitars into the
church PA and wail on Alice Cooper toonz.
The acoustics can be fabulously otherworldly in a good church...
A few years ago, here in Ottawa, I used to volunteer for Rogers Cable,
and did a few shows in churches around this time of year.
In one show, I was camera-operator high up on one of the balconies that
overlooked the whole interior. Fun stuff-- and the particular choir that
evening was phenomenal, especially from my vantage point.
You only live once and if you're not going to be religious and be bugged
by some of those who are, then you might want to at least enjoy some of
the best of what they have to offer. ;)
...In this regard, too, I've been to some pretty decent Xmas bake sales.
Well I've said it before that sometimes you have to make decisions based
on limited evidence... with maybe a limit on how limited the evidence
The most recent church bake sale I can recall attending BTW, was a Greek
Orthodox one ten years ago. (Ken, would Greek Orthodox count?)
If home-made scratch baked goods are offered at a decent price, I'll
admit that they're pretty hard to resist, whether they're baked by the
religious or the atheistic.
