6/26/14 - Someone asked me what I want from OKC
That has been a moving target for the 10 years I have been on OKC.
It still remains a moving target. And forming expectations has
proven to be a really bad idea. I don't read men's profiles, and a
lot of the women put down these long and detailed descriptions of
exactly what they want. In my experience what they end up with
bares no resemblance to what they wrote. But perhaps it comforted
them to write it in the first place. Yeah, it appears I managed to
dodge the question entirely. I can say this. For those who say "she
is not my type"; people really don't have a type. And you can
imagine what you want to find, but when the "one" comes along, that
all goes out the window.
6/12/14 - I finally tried to write down something I have been
thinking for years tonight:
I don't have the math and science expertise to substantiate any
theory or "gut feeling" I may have. But my instinct that has formed
hearing many of these various theories is pretty close to Smolin's.
My feeling is that black holes at some point expel matter into
other dimensions. And these parallel universes are forming and
emptying all the time on a MASSIVE time scale. It so happens that
OUR neighborhood is possibly much larger than the puny ones smaller
black holes may form. Our universe's "big bang" probably sprang
from another universe's very large super black hole event. Of
course that still begs the question about the real original
creation event. But what I like about this vision, is that it is
elegant and cyclic the way nature tends to work. And who is to say
that matter doesn't leave our universe all the time via gravity
wells (black holes), and matter feeds our universe all the time via
mechanisms yet to be discovered. The notion that things sprang into
being from one impossibly dense source is pretty implausible (to be
kind). Then again.. what do I know?
Be nice if I had the math/science chops to prove it :-(
I really enjoy a matinee. A day trip to the hills with a
basket and the mountain bikes is the best thing ever. If you
small planes, helicopters
and hot air balloons
then we have
another thing in common. I tend to prefer the hot weather to

baseball either but I'm not above going to the occasional game.
do enjoy a lot of different motor sports including Pro Rally
but I'm not addicted.
I would rather go to Monterey Bay Aquarium or a science museum than
a sporting event as a rule. I am way too in love with the ritual
Starbucks... not the coffee so much but the ritual. You will
break me of that addiction.. or feed it ;-)
