Cause and Effect

 ... can be reciprocal.  I am amused that scientists have finally gotten around to noticing something that is mentioned in many mystical systems around the world.  And quantum mechanics, of course, where scientists have spent decades staring at the double arrow moaning "That can't be right!" instead of asking "How could this be right?  What would it look like if this bit of science applied to some parts of the world?  Can we find any examples of reciprocal causality?"

Dudes.  If you're doing science, you have to actually do the science.  You can't just ignore parts that make you uncomfortable.

Poetry Fishbowl Report for September 18, 2018

This session's theme was "Polychrome Heroics: The Big One." I wrote from 1:15 PM to 8:30 AM, so about 17 hours 15 minutes, allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 3 poems on Tuesday and another 8 later on. They're all epics and I spent a lot of time on research this round.

Participation was variable this time, with 10 comments on LiveJournal and another 104 on Dreamwidth. A total of 15 people sent prompts. There were no new prompters. Lots of crosstalk among members, but not as much actual prompting.
