Location: Darmstadt, Hessen, Germany

I'm a sort of creative person, seeking the meaning of life . Hard to capture the essence of the mind/brain/soul - but I delight in arguing with ultra-materialists on consciousness. Ah! the smell of a rose and its redness, the smell of a fine wine, a sunset, - great stuff, and all subjective. Oh yeah and actually am Scorpio by 4 hours according to expert astrologer friend - blogger auto-star-sign system missed the fact that I'm on the cusp. Though I agree with Casius when he said "the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings".

Heim fame, book & pneuma

Yeah, in Benford's tales of Olmy the exclamation is 'Star, Fate and Pneuma!' - I was reading one of his stories at the weekend and very fine it was too. Also managed to correct translation of a German article on Burkhard Heim - with any luck it could appear in New Scientist.
Wouldn't it be great if Heim's Grand Unified Field theory or Theory of Everything as they say these days replaced String or Brane theory as flavour of the month? Then as one of his few scientific supporters at the moment I would feel myself vindicated. Maybe that involvement may get me more attention than the book . Thunder rolls in the background as the strange May weather changes yet again - it's been sunny but sticky and humid all day, as yesterday. We ate outside at local newly renovated Kirchmuhle Restaurant - nice there on the banks of the river. The cat has taken to lyign on the mat in front of the house all day, for hours on end.
