Having just watched a short summary of extinction events occurring over the past 500 years I was inspired to observe: An interesting summary… It tends to support what I have increasingly thought… that the answer to the question: “What is the purpose of life?” is simply “To beget life” The meaning of life… (For H,… Continue reading H. sapiens: species of distinction or extinction?

jabberwocky | someone else’s ‘nonsense’ poem

jabberwocky is possibly the most acclaimed nonsense rhyme ever written in the English language.

The poem… Continue reading jabberwocky | someone else’s ‘nonsense’ poem
