spin foam models of riemannian quantum gravity (via cowlix :)

It's hard to be sure that this "spin-zero dominance" is a bad thing, but at the very least, it makes computer simulations a bit dull. Eventually we started trying to come up with a model that darts between the Scylla of a divergent partition function and the Charybdis of spin-zero dominance. This turns out to be quite tricky, at least if one wants a theory that's neatly expressed in the language of category theory - which is what underlies spin foam models. But eventually we found one! And amusingly, it was the very simplest, prettiest model of all... for some silly reason we'd overlooked it until we were really desperate.

david lewis

Lewis is probably best known for his work in the metaphysics of modality (possibility and necessity). His work in this area began with the classic 1973 Counterfactuals and reached its culmination in the highly controversial On The Plurality Of Worlds (1986). At its heart, this book addressed the key question of the metaphysical grounding of possibility (that which could be, but need not be) and necessity (that which must be). Unlike previous philosophers, Lewis was not content to explicate possibility and necessity in terms of mere concepts. He argued for the existence of possible worlds, as real as our own world (the actual world), which serve to ground claims about possibility and necessity. [...] Unlike in some science fiction tales, we cannot journey to other possible worlds - they are isolated from each other in all ways but one: according to Lewis, we have doxastic accessibility to these worlds (put roughly, we can know about them).

cosmopolitanism

The nebulous core shared by all cosmopolitan views is the idea that all human beings, regardless of their political affiliation, do (or at least can) belong to a single community, and that this community should be cultivated.

helmand valley project

The Helmand Valley Project has, at long last, exceeded all hopes for bringing wealth to Aghanistan: the mujaheddin use it to cultivate opium poppies for export. My grandfather isn't very happy about this.

the big time

"Nations are as equal as so many madmen or drunkards, and I'll drink dead drunk the man who disputes me. Hear reason: nations are not so puny as to shrivel and vanish at the first tampering with their past, no, nor with the tenth. Nations are monsters, boy, with guts of iron and nerves of brass. Waste not your pity on them."

magic mint

Known to locals as "Maria Pastora," or "Mary the Shepherdess," Salvia is a member of the mint family and a distant relative of cooking sage that grows naturally only around Mazatec Indian settlements in this remote corner of Oaxaca state.

Internet sites around the world hawk the herb as "legal ecstasy," boast of its wild popularity on the streets of New York's Greenwich Village and encourage would-be buyers to experience a Salvia trip before authorities declare it illegal.

But for dozens of Mazatec healers, Salvia is a powerful and sacred plant with curative powers and frightening mind-altering effects.

eleusis three

Originally, beer was a ritual beverage in all parts of the world. Its consumption was a part of shamanic practices or religious ceremonies to venerate the gods (libation facilitating contact with the "other"). On the whole, beers of this kind also included psychoactive plants. More than 50 known psychoactive plants have been added to beer at some stage in various parts of the world. These beers were consecrated to gods and goddesses (e.g., Thor, Dionysus/Bacchus, Hathor, Bhairab/Shiva, Isis). The mandrake-beer of the Egyptians is a famous example. We may also mention maize-beer (chica) fortified with Datura seeds, and drunk by the South American indios and the "real Pilsner," the henbane-based Germanic beer: as tradition rightly informs us, "this beer makes you thirstier!".

Testimonials:

Here is what our customers are saying about the Temple 3 Ragga Dagga (tm) phenomenon:

"To whom it may concern:

I was skeptical when I first read your ad. I grew up in the 70's & 80's. I was a hard core (alternative smoker) then. So I knew my stuff. But drug tests stopped that! Now I am disabled from a degenerative muscle, ligament, and tendon disease. I was smoking (an illegal product) for the pain and nausea. Now I have something just as good ... Temple 3 Ragga Dagga, but it's cheaper, and it is legal! I also have a lot of trouble sleeping, but the Capillaris Herba made into tea works and smells great! Your products that I tried so far, are as good or better than your ads say! That is hard to find nowadays in a company. Who ever put this stuff together is a botanical genius. I will be a customer for life!"

-- R.J. - USA

"Thank you so much for the Ragga. It is everything you guys claim, and then some! I was a bit skeptical when I read your description of its effects, but there is literally no exaggeration in your advertisements. How nice that this is non-prohibited! It tastes great and feels great too! I am so glad I took a chance and ordered. Blessings to all of you."

-- Frankie R. -- USA

"I'm a man of my 40's and I really know my stuff. I don't drink or do illegal drugs anymore and have found a much more spiritual path. I used to have to take Valium in the past. Not anymore with the Temple 3. It really amazes me how this stuff tastes like the Lebanese and blonde stuff I used to smoke in the 70's. I am very satisfied with all of your products. I like them a lot and will be a customer for life for sure. Whoever makes this stuff is an ARTIST at it. Who would have thought?!"

-- A.J. -- United Kingdom
******************************************************

Finally, we realize of course that this Temple 3 Ragga Dagga (tm) is not inexpensive. (Temple 3 Ragga Dagga (tm) is a very, very Sweet Smoke and "sweetness" is never acquired inexpensively. Such is the way of the Economic Tao.) Nor, as a matter of fact, is it inexpensive for us to acquire, factor or master-craft. Quite simply, it is the very best of its kind that there is to be acquired.
