Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.


When People See What Garbage Everyone Else Is Consuming . . .

A few things from last night's Colbert Report:

To the right, a picture of Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr.

And excerpts from an interview with author Salman Rushdie:

Salman: She's also extremely sexually arousing.
Stephen: Most female wizards are.

Stephen: Was there any different way that women used to use their power of beauty, or was it only because that's the only power they had?
Salman: Well, that, but they also had lotions and potions.

Salman: A lot of the younger generation in Muslim countries really wants that change, so maybe it will, maybe they will bring it.
Stephen: What can we do to help? Can we send them video games? Will that help?
Salman: I think actually, you know, I think video games, YouTube, you know, these are the things that will change the world. Because when people see what garbage everyone else is consuming, they want it too.
