Links Links Links. There Are Houses Falling Apart In My Mind

Web4 is about smaller, far more intense connections with trusted colleagues and their activities. It's a tribe.

The scientist Stephen Hawking issued a warning this week that the world is on the brink of a second nuclear age and a period of unprecedented climate change.

The University of Cambridge mathematician's comments came as the time on the doomsday clock, which counts down to nuclear Armageddon, was moved two minutes closer to midnight, reflecting concerns among scientists over the rise of new nuclear powers.

To Do This Week: Seek Enlightenment

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It's a week to seek enlightenment, Gemini… though there are as many different routes to as many different answers in this vastest of fields as there are thoughts that cross through all the minds of all the world's beings combined. That, incidentally, offers a lot of possibilities. Don't confine your search to answers, as these may do you little good, especially if you're not even sure what the right questions are. This quest is more about ideas you've barely been exposed to, or haven't yet heard at all. And the only tool you'll need to bring along is a mind open enough to admit 'I'm not sure'. Scan the events listings in your local paper, and select one offbeat lecture or exhibition that'll expose you to something you're not likely to encounter unless you go looking for it. Pop into a bookstore or library, grab an inspirational title, and read a few pages right there on the spot. After plugging in for some fresh input, use it as fodder for your own extemporaneous wonderings—in journal entries, blog posts, in-depth emails to thoughtful friends, or coffeehouse chats with opinionated strangers. Get the free-flow of big-picture concepts into livelier circulation. I'm hoping this week's horoscope touches your intellectual curiosity and gets you excited to ask, acknowledge, ponder and propose… particularly considering there's nothing else to do with this exercise other than to take it all in. Ideally, you'll bracket your whole week inside this frame of inquisitive inquiry—and cement its significance with a daily list of what you learned, or reflected upon, during each 24 hours.

“If you think you know what the hell is going on, you're probably full of shit.”

Rest in peace, Robert Anton Wilson.

You are one of the biggest influences on my life. You opened an infinite series of doors into much larger and higher worlds.

Thank you.

Various medical authorities swarm in and out of here predicting I have between two days and two months to live. I think they are guessing. I remain cheerful and unimpressed. I look forward without dogmatic optimism but without dread. I love you all and I deeply implore you to keep the lasagna flying.

Please pardon my levity, I don't see how to take death seriously. It seems absurd.
