>>largely meaningless in a postmodern age where science is
>>evolving into a huge cyberspace gaming system rather than being
>>in pursuit of the old industrial idea of objective tangible
>>goals. But then there are still people around who believe that
>>the world of appearances is totally real:

>>they believe that doctors cure, policemen protect, politicians
>>govern, scientists discover things, and priests leads us to God.
>>Like the skeptics versus believers game, those who oppose the
>>original moon landing split into hot and cool parts. The hot
>>believe that the scientists and astronauts were on a Hollywood
>>set, but I propose a more sophisticated approach based on the
>>question do the scientists themselves consider that it was real?
>>They used screens to carve images in one another's head, as did
>>I.

>>This making of images is a continuous process industry like the

>>indistinguishable.

>>And of course there is no OFF switch.

>Fortunately, there is a delete "switch" so I have removed a lot

>>Through intense mystical subjectivities we

Whew! Thanks, Bruce, I was wondering if I was the only one
whose eyes got crossed reading this. Sounds like what you'd
get if Marshall McLuhan and Robert A. Wilson were locked in
a closet together for nine months....
