Reading the Coins

Filed under: General — m759 @ 7:00 PM

From Didion’s Play It As It Lays :

Everything goes.  I am working very hard at
not thinking about how everything goes. 
I watch a hummingbird, throw the I Ching
but never read the coins, keep my mind in the now.
— Page 8

From Play It As It Lays :

I lie here in the sunlight, watch the hummingbird. 
This morning I threw the coins in the swimming pool,
and they gleamed and turned in the water in such a way
that I was almost moved to read them.  I refrained.

"… at last she realized
what the Thing on the dais was.
IT was a brain.
A disembodied brain…."
 
A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle

"There could not be an objective test
that distinguished a clever robot
from a really conscious person."
