The Electric Soul

What is a soul? It's like electricity -
we don't really know what it is,
but its a force that can light a room.

~Ray Charles

Of Note: Being blind, performer Ray Charles seems to know what he's talking about. Probably because what can be seen can also be felt and heard and even touched, if only with the Mind. If you've ever seen Ray Charles perform, you have seen Soul in action. Ageless wisdom would go one step further, however, and say the soul is not LIKE electricity, rather it IS electricity like every other substance. The whole universe and everything in it are electrical in nature. For more on this, see, an illuminating website from a group of scientists who will someday prove this to be the case. They have posted several wonderfully illustrated ebooks for laymen showing how the universe works from an electrical angle with no big bang, no black holes and no dark matter or energy needed to explain how things work. This is not voodoo science but the real thing with Nobel Laureates among the leaders of the pack. You might want to check it out and be on the cutting edge of the next big "uncovery."

Today's Weather Report: Well, because of heavy snowfall, we have cancelled our trip. No reason to risk life and limb for one meeting in a city far away. Instead, we will figure out how to put the new-used snowplow on the new-used truck. This will either go smoothly or not. We can hope for the former rather than the latter. One thing's for sure, it's always better the second time around.

Watch For Change Snippit: Can you believe the Internet is forty-years old? Well, it is, and according to Discover Magazine, this antique is in desparate need of renovation. 1.5 billion people are now hooked up worldwide on a system that was meant for a few hundred. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is funding the global endeavor and chose BBN Technologies to oversee the project. These are the same folks who sent the world's first email and built the first internet router--so, NSF made a good choice. Twenty-nine workgroups have begun defining the Internet's flaws and will eventually begin building and testing solutions. The challenges are formidable: "How do you reconfigure an entire universe that's already overclocked, jacked-in, and densely coded?" But leave it to the great Minds of humanity to come up with solutions. Hum, maybe that's the point.
