Anagram: Accept Hurt/Cut The Crap


     

The Great Wave at Kanagawa

      I don’t have much to say today, so I’m just going to throw out a few videos that have in past, caught my eye.  Enjoy!

    A Weird, yet cool video, from the Movie Dark Star.  The Ultimate smart bomb, and an existential conversation with said bomb. Curious and excellent stuff. 

      Remind me to watch this movie from front to back. 

    The next video I have queued up is from an Interview on the BBC of Carl Jung.  Here he is speaking of Death and perception.

   This is a segment of a much longer interview. I have yet to see the entire thing, but I have watched two segments of it on Youtube.  Truly deep and well worth watching. 

    The Next and last Viddy is the from a most excellent movie that came out on PBS in 1980 called “The Lathe of Heaven”.  It’s the story of a man who has dreams that change reality.  A truly excellent movie, which shows how he tries to cope with it, and the psychiatrist who tries to help him, and himself in the process.  Based on a novel by Ursula Le Guin

That’s it for me.  Later450px-epicurus_louvre!

Today’s Nuggets, Via Wikiquote:  What if you slept, and what if in your sleep you dreamed, and what if in your dream you went to heaven and there you picked a strange and beautiful flower, and what if when you awoke you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?  Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Death, the most dreaded of evils, is therefore of no concern to us; for while we exist death is not present, and when death is present we no longer exist.   Epicurus

Truth certainly would do well enough, if she were once left to shift for herself. She seldom has received and, I fear, never will receive much assistance from the power of great men, to whom she is but rarely known and more rarely welcome. She is not taught by laws, nor has she any need of force to procure her entrance into the minds of men. Errors, indeed, prevail by the assistance of foreign and borrowed succours. But if Truth makes not her way into the understanding by her own light, she will be but the weaker for any borrowed force violence can add to her.    John Locke
