A Birthday Dream Part 1

As of June 9, 2013 there was lots of new stuff here. The complete text (with illustrations) of Patanjali’s Circus can be found in the anecdotes menu. There is also an unusual conversation with Silo about the virtue of individuality. In my blog you’ll find the first instalments of A Birthday Dream in Spanish and English appear in my blog with some Illustrations by Rafael Edwards. Stay tuned and I’ll tell you about when Silo first told me about this apparent violation of times customary flow.

teenage memories, notes from Rafa


Among the other things uploaded in the last few days is my first entry about life before Silo. This one is a few pages about an interesting character (and related issues, like drugs and other things appropriate to that era of the late 60s). Pure Sound Jack was the nom de guerre of one of the people who frequented a house I lived in with some friends when I was 16.

On a very different note you’ll find in the body of this post (click where it says “read more”) some comments from Rafa along with some notes about how he remembers the making of Sage of the Andes...

In the near future, more tales of my mis/well spent youth, anecdotes about Silo, another instalment of Patanjali’s Circus, more video, and more on attention, the Pure Form, and…

In an upcoming blog I’ll put forward a very simple hypothesis about prayer. Though simple it may, at first, sound like a very odd notion. It can be expressed like this: atheists, and theists, believers, semi-believers and non-believers all pray. And what’s more everyone’s prayers are heard, and answered, even if there is no transcendental entity that hears them.

As an important British biologist said (back when the word queer only meant strange or odd), “Now my own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose”.
J.B.S. Haldane (1892-1964)

Medicical Issues in Spanish and...

Hola. If you haven’t noticed there is a Spanish translation of the letter I wrote which covers some anecdotes and observations about illness, medicine and Silo’s advice to me and some others. If memory serves me well this translation is the work of Hugo Novotny and Ana L’Homme.

To make that short video with Silo at the cafe, easy to find I’ve also added it under the menu heading “Silo”. It’s titled “Cafe Chat”

I’ve also added RSS if you want to be notified of new blog entries. It seems to work on Safari. When I look at it in Chrome I just get text and code. Any suggestions? Is it working for you on your browser? Let me know.
