Pierre starts out by putting a question on the board: What follows if throughout the cosmos each solar system within each galaxy has a unique beginning middle and end?  Then does each reflect its own stage of development? because if so then what is the sum of all that development? Could it be just one name? The Logos. If a certain stage of development allows interconnectedness then...

Text of dreams: Jeff: 4/14/2017 My ma is walking out in the road in the sunlight. She's approaching me. I'm up on the sidewalk, so she's approaching me at a tangent as we're walking along. She just says, "I'll be dead within two weeks." I remember her having said it before already (maybe from an earlier scene?), and I'm wondering why she has repeated it. But as the reality of what she's saying hits me, I get a brief pang of anxiety and that wakes me up. Sean: Tuesday 4.4.2017 at...

Synopsis Seventh in Pierre's latest series of Friday night dialogues on Homer's Iliad . We continue working on Book 18, and come closer to seeing how the word auto (Self) is used in Homer's 18th book.
