Let’s take a little intermission, a brief respite from the first octave of my pensees. Yes, they made me pensive and I hurried to press them around.
If you’ve read them, then, I guess, you know where the wind blows – aside from two pieces about arts and my sloppy memory, I am trying to pass on you my vision of the world. Which is probably ineffable and better done in my writings, but I gave it a try anyway.

I was reading English translation of Michael PsellusDialogue on Operation of Demons [1]. In the past I have explored the subject pretty much on my own (see Indian Gift, Visitations and especially Down the Sea Sallow), and now I’ve turned to experts. So I am reading Psellus, Byzantine scholar of XI century, and then in a footnote I am running into: “autopsy, i.e. intuition”. And I go: “What? Autopsy means intuition?”

In my last posting (#6 Torah Code) I’ve evoked Einstein’s famous formula E = mc^2 of equivalency of mass (m) and energy (E). Imagine what happens when matter hits antimatter (say, proton hits antiproton) and all their mass turns into a burst of gamma radiation. The matter disappears in a flash of high-energy light, and energy of this burst is precisely mc where m is two times mass of proton and mc^2 where m is two times mass of proton and c is speed of light. This event is called Annihilation. The question is: what about an opposite effect, when energy turns into some tangible matter, a matter with mass? We shall call it Creation. Right? But do you know any examples?

Here is another proof that we live in a digital simulacrum akin one shown in Matrix movies. Yes, like it or not, but our so-called reality is not as much a reality as the reality of those colored blocks falling down the Tetris well. Or, as Plato had said, it is nothing but shadows on the wall of a cave. The discovery of Torah codes is the greatest discovery since, actually, I think, ever. To live on a sphere and think of it as a disc, well, it's bad, but not too bad. To see the sun going around the Earth and think that you are in the center of it all, well, bad, but not that bad. What else? E=mc^2.

It happens in the morning when you are almost awake. You lie on your back trying to catch the last crumbs of a dream left from the night when you suddenly realize that you can’t move. You are motionless, you are helpless, and worst of all, you are totally aware of reality and you know that here it comes again, the moment when all you would want to do is to run, but you can’t, and the heavy, sentient darkness descends on you...
