“You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends.” - Robert Anton Wilson
GREAT many thanks to quackenbush & his wonderful www.rawilsonfans.com, w/out which; no dice
I really enjoyed Bob's haiku - and when I went to find them again I stumbled over a poem (presumably for Arlen)Dove sta memora (where memory lives)You have not snared her, Scarecrow Death:She's in my pulse, My heart, my breath.Eye sees only Local hardware;Brain conceives Nonlocal software;Brain knows more Than eye can see:Brain can scan Eternity.RAW poetry
Previously I'd assumed it meant something like 'in loving memory' and had figured to use it since he always said it for Arlen and so maybe it'd work as something to say for him, though then I looked it up and saw that it actually responded to the hand/fist cartoon I made...and I dunno, Wow.
Heh – I wouldn’t trust my Italian, Bobby, but I like the idea that I can still find Bob 'where memory lives' and yeh it fits the picture poifectly, but as I understand it the phrase turns up in Pound’s Canto 63 as a quote from Cavalcanti’s poem Canzone d’Amore and Cookson gives the translation as: in quella parte…memora in that part… where memory lives.I’ll put some other links and academic stuff up in the academic (sic) forum. Heh.
