Bedside Ontology

The mo­ments right be­fore I fall asleep are my most thought­ful mo­ments of the day. It is when I get philo­soph­i­cal or, more of­ten, ob­tuse. Sometimes this hap­pens in the show­er in the morn­ings but not reg­u­lar­ly. There is some­thing about hav­ing my mind in this lim­i­nal state that lets my sub­con­cious and con­scious work in unison. Unfortunately a bypro­duct of this state is a com­plete in­abil­i­ty to re­call what I thought about the next morn­ing. If I re­al­ly want to re­call some­thing I have to wake my­self up just enough to com­mit the pos­tu­late to mem­o­ry. Otherwise I just re­mem­ber bits and pieces. Last night for in­stance, I know I was think­ing some pret­ty in­ter­est­ing things in re­gard to the on­to­log­i­cal ar­gu­ment but oth­er than that I have no idea what the hell I was think­ing. I wish I had tak­en a for­mal log­ic class in col­lege be­cause I have the def­i­nite feel­ing I’m con­fus­ti­cat­ing things quite im­pres­sive­ly. Perhaps its a good thing I can’t re­mem­ber any of it, oth­er­wise I might open my mouth and show my fool­ish­ness.

  1. Well some of those pic­tures are. Not all of them. One thing trou­bles me about this though. If it is pic­tures of the crew, where is the Israli flag? Wasn’t one of the crew mem­bers from there? Do they have an ex­plaina­tion for that? Not that I don’t be­lieve that they might have ac­ci­dent­ly got­ten some of the pho­tos in their FOIA re­quest.

  2. more co­ments from me:
    1.) I added my oth­er han­dle here I guess..opps
    2.) Upon fur­ther re­view the pic­ture on the page you linked to in­ques­tion can­not pos­si­bly be of the as­tro­nauts un­less they on­ly con­tain pieces of as­tro­naut. The shut­tle couldn’t pos­si­bly hold 20 Americans. Also still miss­ing the jew­ish guy, though I think he end­ed up get­ting flown back over and bur­ried in Tel Aviv or some­thing.
