for all men x, x is not an island

Spewed from the brain of tom on

Nevertheless, I’m heading to an island this weekend, that Nature might provide some workaday transcendance. Rudy Rucker, The Lifebox, the Seashell, and the Soul:

…[E]xpressing a desire to have a spiritual life might activate, let us say, certain brain centers that release endorphins, which in turn affect the threshold levels of one’s neurons. And these changes nudge the brain activities to a new strange attractor. A deterministic chaotic bifurcation occurs.

Wish me luck.
