Cosmic Quote #87

“For thousands of years, billions of people have found meaning in playing virtual reality games. In the past, we have called these virtual reality games ‘religions’.”–Yuval Noah Harari

Geez, I’m already self-absorbed enough with two blogs and a podcast.  Why would I need to bother (with) that guy?

Cosmic Quote #84

“The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.”–Neil deGrasse Tyson

The universe? Really? I’m still trying to make sense of Twin Peaks, and keep track of how much time is left on the parking meter.  Don’t talk to me about the universe.

I am trying to make sense of the future at www.seekingdelphi.com.

“No serious futurist deals in prediction. These are left for television oracles and newspaper astrologers.”–Alvin Toffler.

And stock market predictions are the province of charlatans–and economists.  For cogent discussions of what the future might be, and all the issues it may entail,  be sure to visit my futurist blog and podcast at www.seekingdelphi.com.

Cosmic Quote #82

“I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.”–Edith Sitwell

Unfortunately, there are all too many willing and able, not to plead stupidity, but to flat out flaunt it.  And there are also lawyers, lots of lawyers.  And lots of work for lawyers.

Cosmic Quote #76–YouTube and Seeking Delphi Podcast

“I’m sure if Shakespeare were alive today, he’d be doing classic guitar solos on YouTube.”–Peter Capaldi

Yeah…um….NO!  I doubt it.  Shakespeare had his anachronisms, but that’s pushing it.  As for the animals in my household, well, they’ll have to be satisfied with Tales of a Veterinary Spouse.  But my Seeking Delphi podcasts are indeed now on YouTube, as well as iTunes.  All the subscription links are below. Way below.  Below the embedded videos of the first three podcasts.   Sorry, no funny cat pictures–this stuff is too important to get flippant.  Our future depends on it.

One absolutely cannot possibly improve on anything Will Rogers ever said.  Really.  Ever.

Cosmic Quote #68

“Smart is when you believe half of what you hear.  Brilliant is when you know which half.”–Robert Orben

Here’s a tip for you brainiacs.  If you want to know which half of my posts to believe, it’s the other half.  On my other blog,  Seeking Delphi. ™  

Hmmm.  I just started that other blog.  Most of my posts have been on this one.  Well, as Yogi once said, “90 percent of the game is half mental.”

“Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed; everything else is public relations.”–George Orwell

I can only imagine what George Orwell would have thought of The Donald.  A character for a dumbed-down 1984?  A character for a tragic 2016?  Maybe both.  It so happens my alma mater, Emerson College, was named the top journalism  school in the country by USA Today.   But hey, this is not public relations.  It isn’t even journalism. It’s both and neither. It’s ridiculous and sublime.   😛

Cosmic Quote #55

“I do not think you can name many great inventions that have been made by married men.”–Nicola Tesla 

I can name at least three.  Golf, poker and selective hearing.  OK, I can’t prove the first two, but I shouldn’t need to prove the last one. 😛
