The Secret

For most of my life I thought that I was dumb. I just couldn't understand why people did what they did. They had confidence and were more secure in their beliefs than me. I grew up thinking that everyone knew secrets I was was too stupid to understand. I wanted to know the secrets too so I set upon ...

The Meta-Drabble

I try to leverage the reader's knowledge to make simple stories more complex. In "Cosmic Horror" knowledge about Buddhism makes the story work. It's like linking a library to a computer program. For example, printf("%s\n","Hello World") requires the stdio header file and library. Without the necessa...

Re: Drabblecast Director’s cut

In the discussion about Charlie the Purple Giraffe, the composer Carl Stalling is mentioned. I suspect that many people have never heard of him. To most people his name is obscure but his work is anything but. As it turns out I recently watched a YouTube video that discusses Stalling. Here's a link ...

Re: Cosmic Horror

Cosmic Horror

The Buddha said, "You've come to ask me the secrets of life and the universe. How do I know? You've come many times before. Our world dies and is reborn as regularly as the moon follows the sun.

Words have meanings and meanings are important. It's not good enough to just tell robot slaves "Create a better world."

A followup from an article I'm reading: " Memes are all attempting to self-replicate by exploiting inconsistencies or weaknesses in our cultural code. They are not attacking one another; they are attacking us humans. " http://www.iftf.org/fileadmin/user_upload/images/DigIntel/SR-2002_IFTF_Biology_of...
