In 1994 I had a nightmare in Paris, France.

I was in a hallway with one-way glass mirrors as walls on either side. I could see two rooms on either side of me through these glass mirrors and each was filled with people in a line. Some of the people were lining up to go on an up escalator, and some of the people were lining up to go on a down escalator.

Then I realized all of them were dead.

A hooded figure with glowing eyes was next to me. It said:
"Life is dangerous. Life is swell. Life is good if you fit it well."

Then I woke up.

Can't remember any of my dreams after I wake up. Been that way for the last few months. Is that bad?

I was thinking that my ideal job would be to work on The Picture of Everything professionally for the rest of my life. Just expand it year by year until I go blind, can't draw, or die. The trick would be to find someone out there to hire me to do that with a good salary, health benefits, and paid vacation time.

Would empty space without form or matter be dark, light, or grey?

I used to think that before The Big Bang all there was outside of the hyper-compressed universe was static.

Then I realized that static is really electromagnetic noise, so that would have fallen within the realm of all the other stuff within the tiny explosionball to come.

When the Singularity occurs, and we can transfer human consciousness to a computer data stream, how would people be able to end their lives if they wanted to? Suicide would involve deleting all your consciousness files as well as any backup files. There would probably be an entire squad of digital resurrection experts set up to rescue anyone who decides to do this.

Various thoughts

I've been waking up before my alarm goes off at 6am for the last 2 months.
Don't feel there's enough time in the day or that I'm making enough money.
Have matching bruises on each arm from horseplaying with my students.
Very sad about the passing of MCA from The Beastie Boys.
The Avengers was much better in 3D IMAX and anyone who leaves before all of the credits is missing one of the best scenes in the film.
No time anymore for much of a social life or for making any artwork.
