For starters, today's Dinosaur Comic:  www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic…

It sets the stage, so read it.  If you like that, then check out Philip K. Dick's essay of the same name as this thread.  I'll give you a selection to get you thinking:

"We are all accustomed to supposing that all change takes place along the linear time axis: from past to present to future. The present is an accrual of the past and is different from it. The future will accrue from the present on and be different yet. That an orthogonal or right-angle time axis could exist, a lateral domain in which change takes place - processes occurring sideways in reality, so to speak - this is almost impossible to imagine. How would we perceive such lateral changes? What would we experience? What clues - if we are trying to test this bizarre theory - should we be on the alert for?

[for more selections:  empslocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staf…  ]

Indeed?  If the Many Worlds Interpretation of Schrödinger's cat thought experiment (from quantum physics en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schr%C3%… )  is true, then what kind of clues might there be as to this possibility?

Furthermore, let's suppose it is true.  What kind of world are we living in? What kind of life are you living?  How could it all be different (or as T-Rex and PKD assert, worse)?
Some of you may know that I'm an anarchist (and no, that doesn't mean I'm a bomb throwing, lawless fiend).  I'm revisiting some of Voltairine de Cleyre's words, and she was just so damn brilliant...  An incredibly gifted wordsmith - she died so young, but she was so very vital!  I give you some of her words today:

"In everything that lives, if one looks searchingly, is limned the shadow line of an idea — an idea, dead or living, sometimes stronger when dead, with rigid, unswerving lines that mark the living embodiment with the stern immobile cast of the non-living. Daily we move among these unyielding shadows, less pierceable, more enduring than granite, with the blackness of ages in them, dominating living, changing bodies, with dead, unchanging souls. And we meet, also, living souls dominating dying bodies — living ideas regnant over decay and death. Do not imagine that I speak of human life alone. The stamp of persistent or of shifting Will is visible in the grass-blade rooted in its clod of earth, as in the gossamer web of being that floats and swims far over our heads in the free world of air. Regnant ideas, everywhere! Did you ever see a dead vine bloom? I have seen it."

I guess I had no idea she was so... spiritual?  At least that's what I take from the quote.  The Indomitable Will that lives in each of us.  We are blades of grass, pushing upwards.

This relates to my favorite hexagram in the I Ching:  Sheng - Pushing Upwards.  www.ichingfortune.com/hexagram…  (this site is actually based on the Wilhelm/Baynes translation - my favorite).

It's a synchronicity kind of day...

many thanks to the mystery person who donated me a subscription!
the slow lane by skulkey
the slow lane
"The months go by
And I don't think of you
The signal is frail
An imprint of what you do

So I turn up the sound
And you are nowhere
I have learnt this
To my cost

But I maintain
In the slow lane
I maintain
In the slow lane"
