Maybe all the philosophical problems people have wondered about over the years, the meaning of life and what is the self and all of that, are just because right now we’re trapped in one body. Think about it. Maybe after we die it all becomes perfectly clear that we’re not just individual minds but an entire soul, the soul of the world.

Update: Apparently we’ve been illegally recycling. A woman came out of the building near the dumpster where we’ve been throwing our bottles and cans, and she yelled at us because it wasn’t our building. Well, our building doesn’t have recycling. So now we have to make it a covert operation.

From Mark in NY: “There is a bell on the UN grounds, donated by Japan,
that rings twice a year: once on the first day of spring, and once on the
first day of the general assembly meeting period, usually in early September.

Of course, almost prophetically (and you can see where this is going), this
year that day was September 11. The bell was scheduled to ring at 9 a.m.

It didn’t. It still hasn’t. I don’t know when it will again.”

Realization: I realized today that I am prejudiced against people with nice eyebrows and clear nail polish. How ridiculous is that. But I couldn’t come up with any other reason that I was immediately wary of three girls that I’m working on a project with. I’m pretty sure this prejudice is a holdover from high school, when all the super-snobby people were too perfect-looking to be real. It really does take four years of college to get over the damage done in high school. Man.
