"Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

December 21st, 2014, 4:24 pm

The first sentence of the last paragraph of chapter 24 is an interesting one.

"Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

On dusty old books:Turn to page 449.Note the second book in the pile from the top, "The Universe in the Light of Modern Physics," by Max Planck. It is a weathered orange color and not too thick.Mine is the second edition, published in 1937 (1st ed. 1931) and has a few annotations in thin red pencil. A family heirloom. Do odd coincidences matter? Well, Matter matters, apparently, and there are ways to show how it does in relation to Time, Space, Energy, and Imagination. And, of course, itself. Matter^2 - can be quite tricky if you are not careful - watch out for those alchemical reactions! I leave it to your Imagination where (and when) I will start the real reading - probably at the End and also at the Beginning and somehow I will meet myself in the Middle (Of the Earth? Of the Universe? Or of somewhere I have never been before?). I look forward to finding out!

I think we have enough to keep busy by the warm fireplace all winter and meanwhile the well is filling again. "I had learned already never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it."- Ernest Hemingway

A bit down at heels. They should promote it more. Second-hand books, much theft it would seem. English au-pairs working there ..."Deal with him, Hemingway!" J.J.
