“How can you be in two places at once when you’re not anywhere at all”?
--The Firesign Theatre..
Isn’t that what “Dreaming” is - being cognitively in separate spaces at the same Time - “Anywhere” and “Nowhere” at once? Life then, like the song lyric, may indeed be a Dream, infinitely intertwined along a continuum of separate realities. How many of us right now at this instant are alive on this planet; seven plus billions? Life then, might be a projection of seven...

Many work in the area’s only real industry, tourism; existing on incomes of less than $5 a day.

Morality & The Forever War: Chapter Five of The Forever War Chronicles The above image gleaned from a link on Facebook provided by Young Americans For Liberty provoked a spirited exchange between myself and my long-time colleague and frequent foil for political, social, and cultural discourse, Robert Estrada whom I originally met and befriended on my daily ferry commute to Tiburon where I was then indentured to the 1% for a decade and a half. The ideas and thoughts we shared during those brief excursions soon became the high point of my day - but then...
