Sleeping and a-dreaming
About places I would like to go
Climbing the highest mountain
And looking down on folks below
But how I know what I am lookin' at
Why, ain't nobody knows.
I might even be conscious
But ain't nobody knows....

Now it's night time and I'm goin' to sleep
Gonna be unconscious first night of the week
If I wake up tomorrow be conscious all day
Yeah if I wake up tomorrow, gonna be conscious all day
An' if I don't wake up tomorrow
Be conscious in a whole new way, yeah, in a whole new way.

Woke up conscious
Well how the wind did blow!

But how I knew it was blowing
Why, ain't nobody knows.

Funny you should say that, Gnu--obviously, you are acutely conscious of the persistence of matter in the absence of the consciousness that is conscious of the persistence, although how you arrive at that conclusion escapes me at the moment... :D

The lads were working hard and long,
The ladies worked as hard,
Hewing the timber, laying on chow
And shaping up the spars.
The neighbors down the road were there
Most everyone you know,
And they all knew the time was close,
With seventy posts to go.

The frame was lying on the ground
Her timbers broad and green
And the roofing splits were ready by
As fine as ever seen
We was all chuffed up at what we'd done
And a couple of gals did say,
It'll be a hell of a raising up,
When we raise the 42 Kay!

She'll be wide and high and handsome
We'll dance and sing and play
On the day the whole gang raises up
That Forty Two of Kay


The buckboards came a-rolling up
Loaded up with hams and stew,
And a dozen kegs of the very best
Of tree-nails, long and true.
A half-a-dozen kegs of beer
In the cool of the spring stream lay,
Awaiting for the raising up
Of the Forty Two of Kay!

The girls who went to Sunday school
With bouquets wandered up
And one-eyed Pete with his rosined bow
Commenced to tuning up.
Somebody brought a banjo out
And started into play
And everyone was readying up
For the Forty Two of Kay!!

She'll be wide and high and handsome
We'll dance and sing and play
On the day the whole gang raises up
That Forty Two of Kay

Pish posh. Matter exists whether or not conciousness of matter exists. What a hack! Thick as a wooden board that Planck.

I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.

I took some cool pics when I was on the USS Enterprise. Jim came back from the future this coming Thanksgiving and we partied for a week. I just got back.

Actually, my wife wants to go so I'll go with her. The exhibit closes on the 6th.

Amos, I see bodies on the golf course and other places, but they have at least their skin on. I understand that this exhibition is of flayed and cut open bodies, even bodies that are just bones.

Stilly, let's see: today I joined some guys at coffee in the morning, then went to the PO, weeded in the garden, did some other stuff in the yard, researched a new car, fixed three meals, did the recycling, paid some more bills, went to the credit union, and helped another veteran who's working on a VA claim. Retired, yeah, but busy.

Yup, bloodshed. The Bloodmobile was up at the Hovel last night, collecting. They like the blood up there because of the alcohol content -- they use it for victims of hypothermia and frostbite and it thaws the person, place, or thing right out, especially since they light it going in. Also, it doesn't refreeze. There WAS the time that the denizens got the bloodmobile and the bookmobile confused, though. Several of them laid down on the floor of the bookmobile and shouted, "Go ahead, take my blood as well as my money!" thinking it was a joke on the phlebotomists. Folks thought that the library had raised the fines A LOT and didn't visit the bookmobile OR the library for several weeks.

Only seven bills. But some of them were for the first half of the vacation, and Pat's trip to Philadelphia and NYC, and...well, my bank account is less than it was a few hours ago.

So here I sit, a poor but honest child of poor but honest parents, where I learned poverty and honesty, and now I have to keep Mom sober and upright.

Good thing I was out of town the other night when they elected Sawdust to the position of Likker Kentrol Sarjent Majer. He's a teetotaler (dry as sawdust, hence his name) and cut down on the size of the drinks served up at the Hovel. Now, if you can't walk up to the bar and say "Gimme a whiskey, barkeep, pretty please with sugar on" and you aren't given a full bottle, bad things are likely to happen. Sawdust, however, is 6'8" tall and carries 289 pounds of pure muscle and mean. Henry Not Hank once plugged him six times in the stomach with a .45 and the bullets just bounced off the muscles there (HNH isn't with us anymore -- not dead, just thrown so far away he can't get back). So nobody is complaining about LKSM Sawdust yet, but there is talk of a recall election because the next thing on his agenda is to serve whiskey in Royal Doulton teacups (rosebud pattern), which you'll have to drink with your pinky in the air and some of the people, like Rosey Marie, have had their pinkies bitten off in a fight or something and don't have anything to raise, which means they couldn't get a drink and that could lead to bloodshed and worse. We'll see.

WHen Mom would send us out to play.
In times now past and far away
We'd climb the rocks, run over hills
And seek a thousand childish thrills
And when, in the evening of the day
We'd call farewell, and homeward stray
Knowing there's be a dinner set
Hands to be washed, food to be et,
And through the rocks and winding hills
We never dreamed of costs or bills,
And if our bluejeans came home frayed
'T was never up to us to pay.

But now the game is deeply changed
We gallop past a mountain range
Fly out to Paris on a lark,
And dance Montmartre 'til after dark.
Our plays are larger, rich with feeling
And woes to set the plain heart reeling.
But Mom's not home to fill our plates
And we're more mindful of our weights.
And when our adult play is through
The burden lands on me and you.
The gas and tickets, restaurateurs
The clothiers and the bon viveurs,
The lighting bright at end of day--
These bills are all now ours to pay.

And though it's now, and then is then
I'd like to be a child again,
Under the eye of a caring Mother
And leave the bills to someone other!

As for Hran, I wish I could still play. I not only played Hran... I played damn near everything with my ciapan... aluminum beer can, my personal fav, was always a hit with the crowd. Beer bottles also. Cardboard box too, but only with a good box. Telephone books were a definite SMALL crowd pleaser but I was usually at someone's house for that one. An empty 4 litre water jug or an empty plastic gas can has a unique tone. I used to play with whatever I could get my hands on. Seriously, I'd just beat away.

Why DOESN'T gnu come to Getaway? Is he banned from the US as an Undesirable Alien, and if so, from whence did he come to Earth? Is it for fear that a bodhran player might be lynched with the banjo players? -- if so, I can assure him that different trees are always used for health reasons. AND he might have a good time, escaping for a few days from the cruel snow and biting winds that plague Eastern Canada the year around.

Stochastic (from the Greek for aim or guess) refers to systems whose behaviour is intrinsically non-deterministic. A stochastic process is one whose behavior is non-deterministic, in that a system's subsequent state is determined both by the process's predictable actions and by a random element.

However, according to M. Kac[1] and E. Nelson,[2] any kind of time development (be it deterministic or essentially probabilistic) which is analyzable in terms of probability deserves the name of stochastic process.
