Seems like your chapter discussion forums here would be a good place for that....

Which reminded me of something I'd been meaning to say ever since Trang said something
somewhere about how densely packed with ideas Frank's writing was.

In the late 70s, before God Emperor was published, one of my favorite ways to unwind was
to get real stoned, grab whichever of the three books I laid hands on, open to a random page,
read about a paragraph (sometimes less) and just trip for a good long time on the implications
of what Frank wrote. That so many ideas could be expressed, or just alluded to, in a few words
was what convinced me at that time that this was not an ordinary set of books. (I used to describe
it as an opening flower of ideas within ideas)(Yeah, I was a hippie. So what ?)

And, while doing that wholesome and productive activity, one of the other games was to read just
the epigraphs and try to figure out what messages were there as related to the text. Sometimes I
thought it was a commentary on the chapter, sometimes a prophecy. The ones I couldn't see a
direct relation to the chapter's material were the ones I loved the most - made me sit on the floor
for hours, my mind spinning with ideas. (Can you imagine doing the same with KJA ?)

Wow. We hijacked the shit out of the spam thread.


I do that in the bathroom. I can only think about it until my legs fall asleep.

maybe it's an enhanced spammer ? (Tegspam ?)

Yeah um, even though the guy never posted, advertisements for gold on your profile are not a good sign.

Another gmail account. I lifted the ban I had on all gmail accounts to let someone register, I wonder if he'll be effected if I turn it back on?

Was that me? I think I tried to originally register here with my gmail account, but I thought I switched to hotmail when it didn't work.

I'm thinking of dumping my gmail account. It's terribly spam laden. Every time I sign in, the damn thing has at least a dozen spam e-mails, some of which look like they come from my own account.
