    I was doing some reading and came across Dante's notion of Incontinence. Wondering if that may be considered one of Anthony's deadliest sins ????

    I may or may not spontaneously show my face at some point on Tuesday, but on the whole, I expect to be scarce for a while given that I’m in the process of relocating to Manhattan – furniture shopping and deliveries are the main agendas right now; as well as continuing to find time to do my day job. But at least I’ll try to contribute a question: If you lead a good life and your soul finds itself in paradise/nirvana, etc. but you find eternal bliss to be a dreadful bore, can you apply for a do-over?

      Michelle and Anthony, interesting questions. I looked it up in the Book of Marcsism and found: (1) Eternal bliss can be a big bore. Why else would All that Is go around creating universes? It needs something to do. (2) Yahwe et. al. aren't in Hades. Heaven contracts there for janitorial work etc. What else do you expect? Yahwe started by asking St. Augustine to mop the floors, and the latter said "F**** that! That's no way to treat a saint."

      But Marc, if you were bored it wouldn't be eternal bliss. It would be eternal bordom. That's my point!!

    Two exceptional questions and two extraordinary conversations. Thank you everyone for your involvement and energy.

    So far, it seems like the "old group" is assembling. I like it. I met many new faces and listened to many new voices this summer, which I appreciate and found valuable. Yet I miss the energy, vigor and ideas of the old group. :)
