Sean is referring to my resistance to the ETH, I hope. But also dread.
For I have also been thrumming the fingers (11/8 time, like hell)
every now and then this last fortnight at the immense labors demanded

I find myself in a slight difficulty here, made slightly more
embarrassing because it is all my own fault. I've just been asked
(commissioned) to write at length on this very subject for a
respected but nonetheless commercial international magazine (oh,
hype hype). If I spill my best beans here, both the client and I
are somewhat compromised. Whatever some people think about the
notion of intellectual property being everyone's to grab and repro-
duce, I have to fulfil that contract first, I think.

But when that job is done, a version of it may well appear here -
perhaps with additional jokes, perhaps with fewer. I will then of
course gladly engage Greg (or anyone) in debate as to whether my
arguments are circular.

Meanwhile, I suggest you bend an eye to:

Stephen Jay Gould "Wonderful Life" ISBN 0-14-013380-1
Michio Kaku "Hyperspace" ISBN 0-19-508514-0
Robert Baker 'Alien Dreamtime' in "The Anomalist" #2
Mike Davis 'Cosmic Dancers...' in "The Anomalist" #5

Ordering details for "The Anomalist" may be had from

http://www/cloud9.net/~patrick/anomalist/

In a very oblique way, Teilhard de Chardin's "The Emergence of Man"
is relevant too, as it shows how a powerful belief system - which
did not exclude elements of National Socialism - can sophisticate
itself out of the bleak implications of neo-Darwinism.

I know this must be frustrating, and it's my fault for not
anticipating this commission. Meanwhile, for you two and everyone
else, a small consolation prize. This is what you get for mentioning
naughty wossnames like "troilism" in posts that land up on the Web,
where people surf for the most banal things:

>Hi. from Kim & Ray
>We are Kim & Ray and we live in the Dallas area. We are looking
>for singles and couples for adult fun that includes still photography
>and videos, and possible meetings.  The kind of stuff adults like. We have
formed a little group that exchanges photos, videos, has 'get
togethers' and other types of shared adult fun all around the country.
We even have females that will send photos.(Some will pose just the
way you request). There is a wide variety of friends here and more
joining everyday.  We have friends from the West, East, National,
everywhere.  To contact our group of 'liberal minded' adults, check
out http://www.[snipped: details available on request with proof of
Texan residence]

Which brings me to Sean quoting/saying

>> I shall have to ask my mum.

>You are obviously a very lucky man to have such a knowledgeable
>mother.

This is true. The Dowager Duchess of Mendoza is entirely formidable
and has offered a catering contract to Kim and Ray at very reasonable
rates (well, reasonable in her view). I am at a loss to know what
will become of the older generation.

Yours &c
