Shannon points out that
as information in a message increases
[& resemblence to Chaos correspondingly increases]
the test for information lies in REDUNDANCE.

E.G. the Islamic content of first 7 paragraphs
seems more probabe after 3 refs of 1001 Nights, Mecca
scenery, Haroun, the prophet's coffin etc.
than it did with just the bay > bey sample

as cpl Kling quoted
"a waalworth of a skyerscape of most eyeful hoyth entowerly, erigenating from next to nothing and celescalating the himals and all, hierarchitectitptitoploftical, with a burning bush abob off its baubletop and with laroons o'toolers clittering up and tombles a'buckets clottering down."

the Woolworth builfding in NYC -- tallest skyscraper in the world when JJ began the WAKE
Eifel tower skyerscape > fire escape > Parnell fled down one when almost caught with Kiitty O'Shea
erigena  > Scotus Eringa, irish heretic [pan-theist]
larons o'toolers > St Lawrence O'Toole, patron of Dublin, successful politically
tombles a'buckets > St Thomas a Becket, unsuccesful politically

Eriigena was not understood in his time
"which explains, perhaps, the delay in condemning him"
--Canto 35

in the light of light is the virtue
"Sunt lumina" said Erigena
--Canto 74

Light tensile immaculata
 the sun's cord unspotted
"sunt lumina" said the Oirishman to King Carolus
'OMNIA
all things that are are lights"
--Canto 74 Shocked

Making people feel stupid NOT my goal!

I've loved and studied the WAKE and the CANTOS for [73-17 = 56.....], uh 56
years. Will try to slow down info overload. Sorry!

Both Ez and Jim tried to give us a whole new world, including
wot previous Western epics had omitted [mostly Oriental
and modern science perspectives] I'll try to
give only highlights of same. Huh

Our man Jim got interested in synchronicity in 1909 -- long before Jung
named it -- when he visited the grave of Nora's former lover, Mick Bodkin
and noticed that the adjoining grave said "J.Joyce" Huh

Cpl Kling--

All of Joyce's major works end with a female speaking. FW both begins and ends with female imagery.

Good grief! What is this -- some kind of a joke?
   --IN COLD BLOOD


A report to the UN human rights commission in Geneva has concluded that Iraqi children were actually better off under Saddam Hussein than they are now.
This, of course, comes as a bitter blow for all those of us who, like George Bush and Tony Blair, honestly believe that children thrive best when we drop bombs on them from a great height, destroy their cities and blow up hospitals, schools and power stations.

I tried it, along with about 10 other sounbased bain trainers,
about 15-12 years ago. Found the results interesting at least.
Evenually moved on to other areas of research.

I also wd. like to see reports fom others;
my reports appear in CHAOS AND BEYOND --

My last words to Timothy: "I've met Bucky Fuller, and i still consider you the
smartest human I've ever known. I've met Gerorge Carlin and i still consider
you the funniest human..."
Timothy: "Robert, you're an excellent judge of charcter."

He died 2 days later. Sad
