Om migI seem to be a reader of genre fiction series, looking at the books on my electronic and pine shelves. Clusters are science fiction and spy novels. Commonality is the ease of immersion into the worlds of Frodo, Richard Seaton, Kim Kinnison, and George Smiley. Haven't bathed in these waters for a while, though.

Having had some time to myself recently, I started a journey through philosophy and literature, with no formal syllabus, one book suggesting the next. I found that writing provides me with the necessary focus for critical reading, so I created a blog to record my travels.

I try to keep in mind the dictum: without entropy, life itself would be impossible, so manage it responsibly. That is, live on the edge between chaos and stasis, live fractally until you fill up all the whitespace in your life. I have yet to integrate all these concepts, so for now I resort to Camus, who writes, "but the point is to live" and "the present and the succession of presents before a constantly conscious soul is the ideal of the absurd man" and "the absurd man can only drain everything to the bitter end and deplete himself."

"Non, je ne regrette rien."

Remember, mathematics is dominated by the irrational. Two plus two is four occupies only a small corner.

Om mit bibliotekBooks in my LT library are either on my shelf or have passed through my hands and are now sitting on a remote shelf. The latter are tagged with -lib. All have touched me in some, not necessarily profound, way.
