The “entire world” that the Internet seems to offer harmonized strangely with the apple offered to Eve from the Tree of Knowledge — ah, we don’t believe in those old myths? (I guess one company guru did).
Well, the only hope I see hovering in the never-never land (now real) where the Internet does it’s work of feeding smart people amphetamines and “dumb” people tranquilizers — the only hope is that the expanding puddle of boiling, bubbling hot milk will eventually COAGULATE and a new unforeseen pattern will emerge out of all that activity that thought it was aiming at a certain goal. but (as is usual with life) was really headed someplace else nobody knew about.
That makes it sound like the new mysticism for a new Dark Ages. Well, we’ve already bitten the Apple. Good luck to those much younger than me who may be around to see either the new Heaven or the new Hell.
