Nothingness encapsulated. You won't feel a thing.

Saturday, September 25, 2004

The tone metaphysical is also a good one. If you know any big words this is your chance for them. Talk to the Ionic and Eleatic schools of Archytas, Gorgias, and Alcmaeon. Say something about objectivity and subjectivity. Be sure and abuse a man named Locke. Turn up your nose at things in general, and when you let slip anything a little too absurd, you need not be at the trouble of scratching it out, but just add a foot-note and say that you are indebted for the above profound observation to the "Kritik der reinem Vernunft", or the "Metaphysische Anfangsgr√ľnde der Naturwissenschaft". This will look erudite and -and- and frank.
