    Techniques for Influencing Time

    "For time unbroken by looks to the clock the only sound was the chafing of an emery board, and the clock itself, as though seizing the advantage, seemed to accomplish its round with surreptitious leaps forward, knocking whole wedges at once from what remained of the hour." -- William Gaddis, J...

    Stray thoughts under partial quarantine

    - I was walking in the park yesterday, from which you can see the shard and various other skyscrapers on the horizon. And I thought to myself how they look so distant now. Not just geographically, but temporally. That central London is now just a memory. You know that it's not functioning as it...

    what the f**k is the time anyway?

    What are you writing?

    i am writing a book more obtuse and funnier than finnegans wake. it will remodel todays society. it will reshape the minds of the youth. it will be utterly incomprehensible and will remain unread. i can't wait to finish it. i gave up on a ridiculous experiment in narrative bad influences...

    Well, I didn't start on Sunday as promised but finally opened it yesterday and I'm only a few pages in but I thought I'd start a thread to see if anyone has any thoughts. The first things that sprang to my mind so far: Blobjectivity - that's a joke right? All this stuff about the significance...

    CERN Large Hadron Collider big bang experiment

    Has anyone managed to view the live feed? All seems to be going well so far anyhow, according to this: And the earth hasn't been swallowed up by a black hole just yet. :cool:

    'Rot of the stars' - most Lovecraftian natural phenomenon EVER?

    "There have been reports of pwdre sêr (Welsh for rot of the stars) for centuries..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_jelly Could be something more down-to-earth, of course, but still rather creepy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nostoc

    Science fiction recommendations

    Gime me some good books/short stories to read. Quality New Wave/Cyberpunk stuff, no trash or space operas. It would be cool also if they've been stuck up on line somewhere to read for free.

    Hello there, am currently doing a bunch of research into the Radiophonic Workshop for my MMus dissertation. It's been mentioned in passing on here before, so i thought i might start a thread to gather people's thoughts and feelings on the music, legacy, influence, etc. Am perhaps particularly...

    time and techno

    a good way to know if one is "in the moment", according to Zen practices, is that when meditating, and someone comes up from behind and goes "BOOYAKA!" ---- if you are startled, you are not here of this time, but asleep or adrift in some other time; and if you are not startled at all, you are...
