The Nexus

From Google today, some excerpts from the result of the search "define:nexus"–

  • link: the means of connection between things linked in series
  • a connected series or group

  • In computing, Nexus is the security kernel in Microsoft's delayed NGSCB initiative. It provides a secure environment for trusted code to run in. Code running in Nexus mode is out of reach of untrusted applications.

  • A Nexus is a place equidistant from the five elements as explained in the TV series Charmed. Using this as a point of reference, it is quite possible that there could be several Nexus points of power scattered throughout the world, though rare. …

  • A line-mode browser is a form of web browser that is operated from a single command line.

This search was suggested by a book review in today's New York Times that mentions both the Harvard classic The Varieties of Religious Experience and some religious experiences affecting my own Harvard class– that of 1964.

Cuernavaca, Mexico, in August 1960 was the site of what Harvard's Timothy Leary later called the deepest religious experience of his life.

For some other experiences related to Harvard and Cuernavaca, see a search on those two terms in this journal.

The book under review is titled "The Harvard Psychedelic Club." My own experiences with the Harvard-Cuernavaca nexus might more appropriately be titled "The Harvard Alcoholic Club."
