... spiritual and temptation aspects...


The sense of ownership in general is always to be encouraged. The humans are
always putting up claims to ownership which sound equally funny in Heaven and in
Hell and we must keep them doing so...We produce this sense of ownership not
only by pride but by confusion. We teach
them not to notice the different senses of the possessive pronoun—the finely
graded differences that run from "my boots" through "my dog", "my servant", "my
wife", "my father", "my master" and "my country", to "my God". They can be
taught to reduce all these senses to that of "my boots", the "my" of ownership.
Even in the nursery a child can be taught to mean by "my Teddy-bear" not the old
imagined recipient of affection to whom it stands in a special relation...
but "the bear I can pull to pieces if I like".
And at the other end of the scale, we have
taught men to say "My God" in a sense not really very different from "My boots",...
And all the time the joke is that the word "Mine" in its fully possessive sense
cannot be uttered by a human being about anything.

Yes

And I heard Sci-Fi is going to air it again next year, so maybe it will garner some new fans and we'll see another movie or something.

I recently finished watching the entire run of "Friday Night Lights". At first I wasn't sure about this show, thinking it may be too "high school" type, too "90210" type (sorry, can't think of a more recent example, lol).

First, you should probably like football and even better, you should be from or live in Texas to really appreciate this show.

I really, really liked the "Coach Taylor" role, and the whole family dynamic. After the first season, I was hooked and thoroughly enjoyed the remaining 4 seasons (5 in total).

One thing that I absolutely noticed is that I would often find myself thinking "OK, this is going to happen next" --- insert whatever obvious, bad, suspenseful thing you can think of here... But I was always proven wrong. The show constantly surprised me and never fell prey to repetition or predictable behavior.

I was really sorry to see it go!

That was an excellent series! It just amazes me that it never really garnered the popularity to keep it around longer.

Yes, I am actually thinking of buying the entire box set as a Christmas gift for my grandmother. She loves football and I think would enjoy this series, being a "Texas girl" and liking football, plus being a great show... I would say just rent it on Netflix, but she doesn't have internet access!!! Imagine that... That is why I am having a hard time deciding to actually buy the DVD's... I mean, who buys DVD's!!!

A TV show that has no value whatsoever:

Modern Manufactured Deities: Statues made of Snow

"Culture is not your friend". Terrence McKenna

In Understanding Media, Marshall McLuhan describes the "content" of a medium as a juicy piece of meat carried by the burglar to distract the watchdog of the mind.[4] This means that people tend to focus on the obvious, which is the content, to provide us valuable information, but in the process, we largely miss the structural changes in our affairs that are introduced subtly, or over long periods of time.[3] As society's values, norms and ways of doing things change because of the technology, it is then we realize the social implications of the medium. These range from cultural or religious issues and historical precedents, through interplay with existing conditions, to the secondary or tertiary effects in a cascade of interactions[3] that we are not aware of.

So please take your eyes off the man behind the curtain. Nothing to see here. Move on.

PBS has done a number of Nova shows on the universe, time, space, etc.
in their The Fabric of the Cosmos series.

This one here is about space itself. It actually is something. But
theoretical physicists don't know what space is. Full episode at link.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: What is space?

Video: The Fabric of the Cosmos: What Is Space? | Watch NOVA Online | PBS Video
=================================================

The Fabric of the Cosmos: The Illusion of Time

Video: The Fabric of the Cosmos: The Illusion of Time | Watch NOVA Online | PBS Video

(No, they don't know what time is either.)

=================================================

Tonight on PBS they have:

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Universe or Multiverse?


There are other "The Fabric of the Cosmos" episodes. I'm not sure if any others
are free to watch on-line however. Maybe.
