Re: Dune & the Deeper Meaning of Sci Fi

I saw this movie (without ever reading the books), and without giving anything away, it fits the esoteric, archetypal Christ involutionary-evolutionary journey to a "T". It is definitely worth the 2.5 hrs (3 with previews) to watch in IMAX theater. It is true, all imaginative stories, esp...

Re: twin psychics

I just disagree with your premise here. What I'm calling 'shadow dancing' is very similar to what people do naturally in these threads. Now for some shadow dancing: You think I'm lying. Fair!
