PS I'm just being snarky because my wife wouldn't let me go to the easter seminar - she's the one with all the real power, and pants.
Yeah, but I already feel like you're just another guy like me who spent too much time in math, physics, and other physical-sciences courses to buy into the magical maunderings of the New Age. It might toughen one's hide to pretend to give credence to this coffee-table theory of reality, but ultimately it's just chaff and therefore a waste of time to inure oneself to it.
Too bad about SF. However, each time I sit down and think about things, I condense more and simplify more. Sometimes later is better. After that you're on your own because I am no ultimate authority with "many men" (and a fair amount of duds) willing to back me up and swear allegiance to me.
