Still trapped in the time-loop - and I have to say, I'm becoming rather frustrated with some of the shenanigans the crew are getting up to - they think that since this 45 seconds is all they have to consider, they can get away with bloody murder - it started with number two's speed-dating idea,...

All I'm doing here is posting one great poem every day(not mine, obviously) and attempting to summarize the key elements that I think make the poem work....i.e. the kernel of what resonates, rather than how it's achieved - the assumption being that it is achieved via craft, beauty, music, imagery,...

Today we passed through an unmapped wormhole, which had the disturbing effect of sending us into a time-loop - we'd get so far along, then things would begin again - it seems as if the loop is around 45 seconds long - not long enough for us to have a continuing discussion on how to break free from...

Well, I'm here to tell you that the pen is not, in fact, mightier than the sword - that theory was dis-proven on multiple occasions in Holodeck 1 today(at pixellated Commander Riker's expense, unfortunately - that'll teach him to fling those aphorisms around during our weekly poker game -...

Spent the evening wrestling with Zeno's arrow paradox, in which he states that for motion to be occurring, an object must change the position which it occupies - he gives an example of an arrow in flight, and states that in any one instant of time, for the arrow to be moving it must either move to...

I started this blog because I was alerted to the fact that people are unaware that I'm actually a poet(and not just another blogger) - so my plan is to post a great poem every day(not mine, obviously) and to summarize the key elements that make the poem hit the target....i.e. the kernel of what...

I have been reviewing our 21st-century digital archives again, and came across some very interesting footage, as I believe they used to call it, of some of President Schwarzenegger's speeches in the lead-up to (and the aftermath of) martial law, after the collapse of the western financial systems....

Managed to escape from the Holodeck early this morning, after stuffing handfuls of woodworm I imported into the program down the trombones of the insane dummies - it sounded like a free-jazz festival once they realized what was going on....quite a commotion...... A quiet night in my quarters...

I have become trapped in the Holodeck again - I was halfway through a very enjoyable program in which I was an 18th-century archaeologist stumbling upon some fascinating pre-Colombian artefacts, when I was rudely interrupted by a rogue sub-routine - obviously programmed by number two - involving a...

Dammit, I swore those Transactians wouldn't fleece me again - yet here I am in possession of a late-model positronic rabbit (complete with integral Web-browser). I mean, I don't know about you, but having a discussion about the finer points of Spinoza's "Ethics" with a small furry mammal...
