The essence of the mind
Your mind has a fixed hold on that which is
everything you do, you analize, contemplate and

On this subject, I've decided that tonight I will start to write a book. Drawing from my very mixed philosophical, theological, and moral backgrounds and beliefs, it will be not so much a self-help book as a world-help book. I intend to title it "The Tuning Fork of Truth; or All I Need to Know About Life I Learned from Trying My Best to Be a Good Person" The title comes from a modification of a quote I love by David Gelernter, in which I substitute "truth" for "beauty" (seems rational, no?). "The sense of beauty is a tuning fork in the brain which resonates when it stumbles on something beautiful."

With a little luck, maybe I can shape the future a bit for the better of humanity, and get people to shift their mindsets a bit. More details to follow as the book gets written.

The scribbling will commence after I get home from work this evening. Since I'm on lunch now, I can't very well get cracking at this moment.

Let me know what y'all think.
