The Show Your Movies Thread
The Everything Lecture Tour
Kind of a documentary-type movie.
The Theory of Everything All the Way Up Enhanced Print
(fantastic book; much more in it now):
‘Everything’ explained, its source, its Why and How, and then the Where, What, Then and When, leading on up to the Who of being, plus many discussions, epic thoughts illustrated, brain waves illustrated, and more.
Intro: The TOE must not only encompass the unification of the forces, which is the GUT (the Grand Unification theory), but it must also demonstrate why anything exists at all, and how it does so, and, furthermore, how that ties in to what we have become up to now, such as how we operate, and so forth.
“Why does anything exist at all?” is much akin to the ‘great’ philosophical question of “Why is there something instead of nothing?”
Both questions are stated backwards, as if ‘something’ had to be decided, versus there being Nothing‚ a lack of anything. Some presume that something came from an absolute Nothing or that things are forever made of even smaller things. These are not the case, for causes cannot forever precede causes—an infinite regress, nor can a total Nothing ever produce anything, for ‘it’ has no existence, meaning that it is not even ‘there’, yet, Nothing still plays a role, as there is literally nothing to make anything of. To confirm, we look for a balance of opposites summing to zero, and, indeed, we find it. It is as if Nothing is perfectly unstable, which is why it cannot be, and is not found anywhere at all.

Living Free and Freely:
In New York and Hawaii
Life on the cheap, and nearly free, in a warm climate, in the mountains.
Wireless internet arrives from a nearby town/hotel.
Email is both the mailbox and the phone.
The laptop internet is the TV and the movie theater.
We can use a PO box for snail mail.
No taxes, no rent, no mortgage.
The view is superb.
The motorcycle idles,
Which is really nothing more
Than a soft purr,
As one of my long-life
Laptop batteries charges up,
Waiting to be swapped with the other,
Soon to be a dying one.
