Re: Something from Nothing

Wait a minute! You don't need opposites. Take the light in the fridge, for example. It's always light in there and never gets dark. I've tried it! Every time I open the door, it's light inside. It doesn't take any branes to see that.

Re: Something from Nothing

INTERFERENCE: No! No no NO! Darkness is NOT necessary for light to exist. Incidentally: please lend me 20 to give Ursa? There's nothing in my money jar. You'll have to get it back from him ...
METRYQ: That's what the door's for: to keep the light in ...

Re: Something from Nothing

Let's see, that's the 20 you're asking for and the 10 Ursa first mentioned, bringing it up to thirty. Then there's the 20 I figured is the true value, so that's a total of 50 I'll be sending you. PayPal ok? Or would you take a Czech? I can have Franz Kafka morphed to you - you can keep the change.

Don't bother to thank me, it's nothing, really. I mean, really

Now, ain't that somethin'

Re: Something from Nothing

Just beam it up. Now you see why I dropped out of Economics at college?

Re: Something from Nothing

And you see why Cameron was asking me to be Chancellor?


Appreciation of light is necessary for an appreciation of dark, but perhaps that's a whole 'nother topic ....

Re: Something from Nothing

Hold on—Egyptian hieroglyphs were variably written right-to-left, left-to-right, or top-to-bottom. Sounds pretty dyslexic to me. Are you sure they weren't dogs? That might not sit well with Bastet, but something she was willing to overlook for the generous availability of sand.

Re: Something from Nothing

Well look -- if everyone on this thread sends me 20 bucks, then e mails this post on to ten other people, and asks them each for 20 bucks, then each of them sends it to ten others -- uh uh -- something's wrong here -- I'm not going to make much out if it. How do those pyramid schemes work again? Anyway -- they must have an ancient Egyptian curse attachment: if you send this on, you will be blessed with great things, but if you do not -- then say goodbye to your hard drive ...
