Another cautionary tale?

Another cautionary tale?

I just listened to an excellent story that… well, I won’t spoil it for you. Here’s the teaser:

What if a device could tell you exactly how satisfied you’d be with any decision? What if you could carry the future around in your pocket? What if you never had to say “what if” again?

The Decider

It’s called ‘The Decider’. Enjoy!

Apple pie?

Apple pie?

Tucked away in a hidden corner of Harmen Mesker’s Yijing site, there’s a very interesting blog, Lessons from the Lake. Its author is learning from Harmen how to read the Yi through its trigrams, and as she puts what she learns into practice she writes clear, detailed posts about it all. An interested reader can follow… Continue Reading

So… I looked through her site, and let her know about a couple of errors I found. We chatted by email, and… Continue Reading

Technology has apparently come full circle: first we made every word count as we laboriously inked, scratched or engraved them by hand; then the printing press brought doorstop-sized novels (and Yijing commentaries likewise); now a phone with a 100 character limit prompts these brief responses to hexagrams, lines and commentaries: http://gnostix1.wordpress.com/recent/mindscapes/100-characters/ Good things here –… Continue Reading

Last few laws

… all still from Harmen. Laws 5 and 6 – If you cling to the answer you will lose the solution. The symbolic replies from the Yijing can invite you to endless lingering in the field of metaphors, chewing on every possible piece of information that might or might not be meaningful to you. Many… Continue Reading
