<nettime> Within the Scrap


Within the Scrap

"I consider this hour by hour: If I should die now, have I written suffic-
ient? I don't think my work easily sums up; there are far too many edges,
confusions. Philosophy is my first love; I would want this to stand or
fail by such. But it must be dragged out between the scraps and clutter. 
I mean this in all sincerity: What remains? For how long? For what read-
ers? The first question is the most important: The What of my work, the
content, reading between or through the lines, searching out the philoso-
phical among the ruins." (Alan, quoted by Jennifer.)

"The importance of interspecies communication, the peak of interspecies
communication insofar as we can foresee it, lies here: establishing com-
munication with the dlophins, and with the medium-size whales, and with
the great sperm whale. I visualize a project as vast as our present space
program, devoting our best minds, our best engineering brains, our vast
networks of computer people and material and time on this essentially
peaceful mission of interspecies communication, right here on this plan-
et." (John Lilly, quoted by Nikuko.)

"nahu akua--a bruise believed to be a bite inflicted by the spirit of a
living member of the family. The bite was thought to foretell the death,
not of the one so bruised, but of the relative whose spirit made the
bruise." (Pukui, Haertig, Lee, Nana I Ke Kumu, Look to the Source.)
