into the abyss?

what is this emptiness...?

in other news, interesting read, this.

...

if a star goes nova, and it isn't ours, why should we care? and if it is ours, then again why should we care? it's not as if we could do anything about it anyway. world poverty & hunger, the global aids epidemic, those stuff we can fix (although we choose not to), but if the sun goes nova... not much we can do about that.

unless we uncover the method of slipping from this strand of realtime, into a better one. one less harmed by our pervasive, pathological, presence. one that we will swallow and debase, make a faithful replica of the realtime that we are subject to now.

nova looks better and better now, doesn't it.

Hmmm...does plain curiousity win out as a reason to study them??? Then again curiosity killed the cat (good thing it had 9 lives!)
