profile update, 4-5-2005 hi all, many things you'll find here, passionate stories, interesting news clips, thought provoking thoughts. sometimes my journal is about me, sometimes it isn't. either way, i do try to keep it at least a bit entertaining. you won't hear me whine and bitch too much, and you wont hear me tell you who i saw at the mall last night (well... unless i see somebody pretty cool...) one thing though, if you add me, i'll try to add you back soon, BUT it is physically impossible for me to read everyones journals in their entirety. i try to comment often, and usually comment to a response since obviously somebody spent the time to leave me a note. i'm a single dad of a beautiful boy named zhane and he and work keep me quite drained of almost all energy... so, enjoy, have fun, and be careful... just because you are paranoid, does not mean that they aren't after you... valis
looking beyond the realm of our existence and into that which cannot be explained
by the way, if you are wondering: VALIS comes from the book by the same name, written by philip k dick who also wrote the book that the movie bladerunner was based on, the short stories that total recall and screamers were based upon. Vast Active Living Intelligence System, another name for God. Keogh from the necroscope harry keogh from the brian lumley necroscope series of books. wonderful vampire series, much more expansive and interesting than the anne rice books. highly recommend both.
interestingly enough, god would be the ultimate necroscope. he is surrounded by the dead.
VALIS (acronym of Vast Active Living Intelligence System): A perturbation in the reality field in which a spontaneous self-monitoring negentropic vortex is formed, tending progressively to subsume and incorporate its environment into arrangements of information. Characterized by quasi-consciousness, purpose, intelligence, growth and an armillary coherence.
