Musical Metaphysics

Some background for my journal entries of  April 2, 2003 (Symmetries), of March 31, 2003 (Sunday Lottery), and of March 28, 2003 (Bright Star):

In memory of

Today’s site music (see midi console at top right of screen) is “All or Nothing at All.”

In view of the Sunday Lottery entry of March 31 and of Starr’s hits,  this song might be retitled “007 or 256.”

In view of Draper’s hit

“Tell all the folks that
  this life’s a game of poker….”

the following article is of interest:

“GOD MAY PLAY DICE with the universe, as Einstein once feared, but serious gamblers, scorning metaphysical crapshoots and the casino’s house edge, prefer no-limit Texas hold’em poker….”

— James McManus, Boston Globe, Sunday, March 30, 2003

Two other quotes, epigraphs to the classic novel Cosmic Banditos, seem relevant:

God does not play dice with the universe.
— Albert Einstein

Not only does God play dice with the universe, but sometimes he throws them where they cannot be seen.
— Stephen Hawking

Those who prefer Jewish metaphysics can consult the related book

Seinfeld and Philosophy:
A Book about Everything and Nothing

  1. No really …

    I’m grinnin’ from ear to ear.  THIS is an excellent post.  Aw, they all are, but once in awhile, you get me.  Sincerely.  It’s as though you pull me into a headlock and rub a noogie on my noggin’.

    My Xanga woes have mysteriously disappeared.  I had already done all the suggestions handed out to me … to no avail.  It WAS a Xanga system glitch.  I emailed the Xanga Gods on a number of occasions, and evidently, they heard my pleas.

    Thank you for your concern.

  2. Humn.  Don’t you think it’s rather interesting that there was an ad for Diamonds in the article you quoted?  For some reason, it jumped at me.

    Synchronicity, yet again.
