Quote for the Halloween Month of October:

That the academic world has managed to dismiss Rudolf Steiner's works as inconsequential and irrelevant is one of the intellectual wonders of the twentieth century. Anyone who is willing to study these vast works with an open mind (let us say a hundred of his titles) will find themselves confronted with one of the greatest thinkers of all time, whose grasp of modern science is equalled only by his profound learning in the ancient ones. Steiner was no more of a mystic than Albert Einstein; he was a scientist, rather — but a scientist who dared enter into the mysteries of life.
Russell Davenport, Former Managing Editor of Fortune Magazine (Thanks to Don Cruse for sharing this quotation with me.)

Out Our Way:
My friend Kevin Dann wrote, "How absolutely thoughtless of me not to send word at least while you were hunkering down to greet Ivan." He has been engrossed in writing his book on Thoreau, which in order to accomplish, has required him to create an isolated Walden Pond hut around himself. We can expect a bounty when a book about a 19th Century naturalist is written by a 21st Century naturalist and historian. His book "Lewis Creek Lost and Found" will give you a hint of what to expect from his forthcoming book on Thoreau. Only this time instead of a random walk along a living creek, his peregrinations will take him along the outpourings from the psyche of a living naturalist. This title suggests itself to me, "Henry David Thoreau Lost and Found" by Kevin Dann.

This, in part, is what I wrote to Kevin in reply:

If sitting on the East Portico of Timberlane reading Cosmosophy 2 and enjoying the cool breezes of Ivan is "hunkering down", that's exactly what I was doing. But Ivan had something else nice in store for me: the Chinese Tallow tree, whose prolific progeny I extract by the dozens from my gardens each year, was laid gently down with a slight thump on the back of our garage, no damage to the roof. I quickly mounted the garage and engineered the remainder of the fall to the ground with my trusty chainsaw, and returned to reading. Yesterday my firewood man came by and did a reverse delivery of firewood -- he expertly cut the large horizontal trunk while I hauled the pieces to his truck. We have some minor limbs left to chop and remove, and my total cost for the whole thing was $20 [instead of the $400 it would have cost but for Ivan]. For more on Hurricanes and Mass Events, Click Here. To see an .mpeg movie clip of Ivan's winds at sunset, Click Here.

So I'm singing and dancing with Ginger Rogers to this old tune, new lyrics:

"Ivan! I'm with Ivan!
And I neatly find the happiness I seek,
When I've Ivan's breezes gently on my cheek. . . "

Our condo in Orange Beach took a direct hit by Ivan and we got to see an aerial view of it thanks to an intrepid photographer for the Times-Picayune, our local newspaper, which posted 500 of these photographs on its website of the damaged area. We own a floating week and we are confident the repairs will be completed in for our visit next June.

This month was the time for my annual eye examination and I bought myself some new technology glasses. The lens are my usual lightweight Zeiss lens, but the frames are made of a titanium alloy and the lens have no screws to come loose as my old ones did. The frames are the weight of three paperclips. They also have no hinge whatsoever! The titanium side earpieces bend easily closed with no hinges. Basically the frames and integral lens have nothing to come loose or break. I'm anxiously awaiting the new eyeglasses and my new look which will go with them. I'll post a photo if I get them before this Digest goes to press.

More new technology this month: New Camera Phones for me and Del. It was time for her to renew her contract and the camera phone is de rigeur today. Much easier to read the names and numbers and to operate than our old phones. I practiced sending a photo via email from my phone to my PC and it worked first time. Look for photo of the new phone and a sample photo taken by the phone's built-in camera. Got a visit from my daughter Carla from Beaumont and her sister Maureen who lives across the river from us and they were one of the first guinea pigs for the new camera phone. Del chose the Hallelujah Chorus melody for her ringer for all eight of our children. You should see her jump for joy when her phone sings "Hallelujah!" because she knows one of our offspring is calling for her. Photo is of my phone with Del's photo on it.

I got a chuckle this month from a cartoon in my New Yorker Magazine. A psychiatrist is telling his patient, "These feelings of yours aren't unusual --- in fact, several of them have Web sites." I chuckled because my Web site, is devoted to every kind of feeling anyone might have --- especially the ones you would like to get rid of.

I had lunch with Patricia Dunbar, a close friend, who asked to say more about the "time wave from the future" diagram in my review of "A Psychology of Body, Soul, and Spirit." I explained it to her, and also mentioned to her that I added a detailed explanation of the diagram to the "psychology of soul" section of the review, which was not there when she first read that section. Those of you who may have also missed that section can find it by Clicking Here.

Del's cousin from Virginia came to town and stayed with us a couple of days. I enjoyed cooking for us and taking her to Accent Annex for some Mardi Gras memorabilia to take back to her friends and co-worker at her office. She grew up in New Orleans and knew exactly what she wanted to be able to share Mardi Gras with her friends on the East Coast.

The removal of the tallow tree blown down by Ivan wasn't the only major outdoor work of the month. We had a slate patio slab and sidwalk added to the edge of the South Portico at Timberlane this month as soon as Ivan was history. We had someone take care of all the work on the walk, but Del and I had to remove about a dozen cypress knees from the path of the slab. These are short gnome-like projections of the Louisiana Cypress tree's root system. Their major function is to keep the trees from blowing over in hurricanes. Then we had to spread about 4 cubic yards of river sand in various low places in our garden, including raising a spot for an outdoor table and chairs. I leveled the 8X8 foot area about six inches above the surrounding area and we bought some concrete patterned stones to create the patio area under the live oak trees. Nice shady area for drinking coffee in the mornings and reading in the afternoons.

Made a large redfish courtboullion for me and Del and some lucky friends and relatives got a taste of it. I got photos of the ingredients, preparation, and final serving stage of the courtboullion and it is the featured recipe for the month. My dad, Hilman "Buster" Matherne, created this recipe and it was featured in an Acadian Magazine about 30 years ago. Today you can see it in this month's Digest below. Bon Apetit! You wish to make a Wild Game Sauce Piquante? Use this recipe and follow the alternate instructions for the sauce piquante. Two for one recipe this month.

LSU football --- this is the 1959 season all over again. Back then, we were trying to remain undefeated and repeat as National Champs --- same as this year. In 1959, a call by a referee negated the two point conversion by Billy Cannon and we lost 14-13. This year, a call by a referee on a missed extra point by LSU's opponent permitted them another try at the extra point and they won 10-9. But the experience put a rod in the spine of the youngsters on the LSU team and they came back to whip Mississippi State 51-0 the following week in a near perfect game. Will be a fun season for the Tiger faithful.

No doubt many fans who saw the LSU-MSU game noticed that the running back, Alley Broussard, created his own alley when he ran with the ball, sometimes carrying opposing linemen with him. He reminds me of Jimmy Taylor or Earl Gros (I saw Earl run while I was at LSU, 1958-'62) and Taylor afterward at Green Bay on TV. I was at St. Joseph's Church for High Mass on Sunday, the morning after the game, and when we sang the hymn:

"Allelujah, Allelujah, Allelu-ooo-jah!" I kept hearing it this way:

"Alley Broussard, Alley Broussard, Alley Brou-ooo-sard!"

Would make a great cheer, I thought, though I can't imagine putting a church choir in the stands to sing it. My nephew Dean Matherne told me he saw Alley Broussard when he was in high school playing for Acadiana play against Hahnville High School (my alma mater) who had LaRon Landry in their backfield. Alley and LaRon took turns running into the end zone and it seemed whoever had the ball last would win the game. Now both these young men are playing in the LSU backfield, Alley on offense and LaRon on defense.

My dad celebrates his 87th birthday on Michaelmas, September 29. He was born about a month before the Russian Revolution and has outlived it. We had a birthday party at his home in Mimosa Park and all five of his surviving offspring were there, in addition to his brother, Terral and wife, and three sisters and a sister-in-law. (Click Here to hear/see Buster blow out his candles 1.5Mb mpeg or Click Here to see all the photos I took of the festivities, including his brother and sisters who dropped by.) Some watched the Saints beat the Rams and others played a card game and all had plenty of great food to eat. My favorite time was sitting outside with my brothers Steve and Paul with our wives and watching the grandkids Hunter and Abby playing in the grass. Abby, an 18-month girl stole the show with her version of the chicken dance and teapot dance (Click Here to hear/see Abby do teapot dance 1.6Mb mpeg).

On Dad's actual birthday, Wednesday, September 29, I took him to lunch at Tony Mandina's Restaurant for some catfish and white beans and rice. It was delicious. Afterward we went to visit Doris Richards, Del's mom, and Del took this photo of Bobby and Buster in front of the steamboat named after the man Buster named me after: Robert E. Lee. (See photo below.)

Movies we watched this past month:

Notes about our movies: Many of the movies we watch are foreign movies with subtitles. After years of watching movies in foreign languages, Arabic, French, Swedish, German, British English, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and many other languages, sometimes two or three languages in the same movie, the subtitles have disappeared for us. If the movie is dubbed in English we go for the subtitles instead because we enjoy the live action and sounds of the real voices so much more than the dubbed. If you wonder where we get all these foreign movies from, the answer is simple: NetFlix. For a fixed price a month they mail us DVD movies from our on-line Queue, we watch them, pop them into a pre-paid mailer, and the postman effectively replaces all our gas-consuming and time-consuming trips to Blockbuster. To sign up for NetFlix, simply go to and start adding all your requests for movies into your personal queue. If you've seen some in these movie blurbs, simply copy the name, click open your queue, and paste the name in the Search box on NetFlix and Select Add. Buy some popcorn and you're ready to Go to the Movies, 21st Century Style. You get to see your movies as the Director created them — NOT-edited for TV, in full-screen width, your own choice of subtitles, and all of the original dialogue.
P. S. Look for HD/DVD format movies which are now available from NetFlix.
Hits (Watch as soon as you can. A Don't Miss Hit is one you might otherwise ignore.):
“Cold Mountain” (2003) — a very un-Civil War epic love story about young man (Jude Law) who goes off to fight the Yankee invaders while his new sweetheart (Nicole Kidman) stays behind to wait for him. After her minister father dies, she is left alone to starve until life lays a Ruby in her hands, “Nurse Betty” (Renee Zellweger), who shows up sans relatives and who knows how to make a farm and a life work and sets about doing just that. Will Jude survive his Odysseus-like adventures to return to his faithful “Penelope”? And if he does, will he survive the “Home Boys Bounty Hunters” who are killing anyone they suspect of desertion? This is a part of the seamy underbelly of the War rarely covered. What will Ruby do when the father who abandoned her as a child returns? Oscar-winning performances abound in this movie.
“The Human Stain” (2003) is a stain that will not wash off, no matter how light the stain. It is a stain that is visible when it is invisible because of human thought, and both Nicole Kidman and Tony Hopkins had it in dramatically different ways which are revealed as the movie unfolds. This invisible stain was like a spook that followed both of them around, and was revealed one day to Coleman (Hopkins) when the esteemed professor referred to the two students who had never attended his class, never showed their faces, nor ever sat in their chairs as “spooks”. This movie is an excellent example of the genre in which the movie is written in the course of the movie. “Murder 101" with Peirce Brosnan was the first time I began aware of the genre. As is usually the case, you only become aware of this nature of a movie near the end of the movie when you realize the narrator from the beginning is to be the author of the book which becomes the movie. In this case the author of the book was Philip Roth and the construction of the story was amazing. In the movie the revealing of the layers of the plot as the movie progresses was outstanding.
“Laws of Attraction” (2004)--- two lawyers attracted by a force inversely proportional to the distance between them. Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore in a romantic farce reminiscent of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Julianne’s mother, a cosmetic surgery addict, generated the best lines. When asked how old she was, she said, “Depends on the part of my body.” She said she was having a party where the gals would have fat taken from their butts and injected into their lips. Julianne said, “That will add new meaning to the phrase, ‘talking through one’s ass.’” Can two divorce lawyers with polar opposite courtroom demeanors find happiness in the same courtroom, the same castle, the same bed, the same city? Asked and answered. By the movie. A hit.
“State and Main” (2000) — in sleepy Waterford, Vermont at the corner of State & Main is the only stop light whose main job seems to be to slow down the traffic before the cars hit the town’s only pothole. The pothole makes its presence known by the thumping that goes on behind many scenes, outdoor and indoor, and deserves screen credits. This movie is about a dweeby writer who is working on a movie titled “The Old Mill”. But it seems the old mill burnt down 30 years earlier during a spate of mysterious fires, and he must re-write the movie, change the title, and do all this while the actress disrobes on his bed and the cute owner of the bookstore (Rebecca Pidgeon) is smitten by him. Great lines by all the characters, but the best by the Director played by William H. Macy, who does as outstanding a job in this movie as he did in “Seabiscuit” as the race announcer. When someone accuses him of a lie, he snaps off, “That’s not a lie. It’s a gift for fiction.” Rebecca has a gift for fiction and helps the writer she’s fallen in love with. Her explanation of why Dalmatian dogs are associated with firehouses is priceless. “The first firehouse was built in 642 A. D. on the border of Dalmatia and Sardinia. So it was either Dalmatian dogs or Sardines for a mascot.” This is a movie you want to go on and on.
“Charlotte Gray” (2001) in another intense, courageous, and loving role Cate Blanchett plays a British woman who falls in love in a baby-face pilot and when he gets shot down in France, decides to head there to work with the resistance. This is the best movie I’ve seen which portrays the activities of the Vichy bureaucracy run by Frenchmen who collaborated with the Germans to maintain some semblance of control over the southeastern provinces of France during WWII. It was only in the Vichy area where the French Resistance operated. Cate is of course the eponymous Charlotte Gray, but her resistance name is Dominque. Wonderful look at Julian, the Communist resistance fighter, and his relationship with his elderly father when Dominque becomes a resident at their house with the two Jewish boys whose parents were deported by the Germans. When they come looking for the boys, will Julien give up the boys or his father? Will Dominque go away with Julien or back to Britain, now that her flyboy has been found dead in his plane’s wreckage? If she ever sees Julian again, will she have something important to tell him? This is a fine movie. Get the popcorn ready.
“Umbrellas of Cherbourg”(1964) in its newly restored Technicolor glory. Amazing movie completely in French and all the dialogue is sung to the music of Michel LeGrand. You don’t need to understand French to enjoy the lush music and operatic story of love found, then lost, then found again, sort of. Two haunting melodies return again and again, “I Will Wait for You” and “Watch What Happens”. This is a treat waiting for you, one that will make you want to whisper in the movie’s ear, “Mon amour, ne me quittez pas.”

Misses (Avoid At All Costs): We attempted to watch these this month, but didn't make it all the way through on most of them. Awhile back when three AAAC horrors hit us in one night, I decided to add a sub-category to "Avoid at All Costs", namely, A DVD STOMPER. These are movies so bad, you don't want anyone else to get stuck watching them, so you want to stomp on the disks. That way, if everyone else who gets burnt by the movie does the same, soon no copies of the awful movie will be extant and the world will be better off.

“The Last Samurai” (2003) — in which Tom Cruise lives to get the girl whose husband he killed, and the real last Samurai dies. Too much killing and the wrong guy died. Two and one-half hours of blood and guts spilled on the ground in the search of a story.
“Never Again” (2002) — there was a James Bond movie titled, “Never Say Never Again”. It might have said “Never Watch Never Again” if the movie had been done in the 1970s. Two 55-year-olds promise themselves about falling in love, “Never again!” and naturally Jill Clayburg and her beau-to-be eventually find each other after a random walk through the lugubrious NYC dating scene. This movie might have been titled, “No Sex and the City” and calls to mind what Woody Allen said in “Annie Hall” about masturbation, “At least it’s sex with someone you love.” Go ahead and watch this movie if you dare, and I promise you that you’ll be mumbling, “Never Again” long before the movie is over, even during the slapstick funny bits.

Your call on these — your taste in movies may differ, but I liked them:

“House of Sand and Fog” (2003) — An exiled Iranian Colonel and his family have to leave their spacious villa on the Caspian Sea for a cramped 3-Bedroom ranch overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a foggy hillside near San Francisco. Working jobs on a road crew and in a gas-station convenience store to hold his family together, he bid on the house at auction and moved in, only to be confronted by the former owner who let the house slip from her fingers, but not from her mind. This is a powerful drama of a young girl and an old man, both in exile, who covet the same house. Have a light movie ready as a palette cleanser after this one.
“Serendipity” (2001) — a quaint demonstration of the meaning of serendipity — a delightful coincidence, what Steiner calls a “time wave from the future” and I like to call “remember the future”. Whatever you call it, these two demonstrate that when two people begin thinking of each other at the same time, their world is helpless to stop them from meeting, no matter how many crossed paths, near-misses, traffic jams, or Dalmation dogs it presses into service to keep these two people apart. If something like the events in the movie had not happened in my life already, I might be reluctant to believe it’s possible. (Reviewed earlier here.) Always worth another look. Cusack at his best when he’s lying on his back.
“Love Comes Softly” (2002) a Hallmark Channel movie about a pretty young widow whose husband dies when their covered wagon reaches their destination and she marries a man with a young daughter to have a place to stay till Spring. The daughter hates her and the winter takes them on getting-to-know-each-other adventures and she ends up going back East in the Spring as he promised she could, or does she?
“Jersey Girl” (2004) with Ben Affleck pining his life away in small town New Jersey with the child of his brief marriage to Jennifer Lopez terminated by childbirth after he left his posh job in NYC to raise the girl with his dad, George Carlin, and two dubious “uncles”. Can he find life in the boondocks driving “The Batmobile” street sweeper for the county? Disney fare with heart tugs at the right time and scenes stolen by the 7-yr-old eponymous “Jersey Girl” Gertie.
“Nicholas Nickleby” (2002) — Christopher Plummer as Uncle Ralph plays such a good bad guy that he raises this movie above the year earlier BBC Ch. 4 production of this classic Dickens’ tale. Also be on the lookout for Strelnikov as one of the key characters. His face is different, he’s much older, but the voice is the same.

Boudreaux was laid off his job on the oil rigs, so he got a job as bartender at Mulate’s. He liked watching the people who came into drink and liked talking to them, if they gave any sign of wanting to talk. This one guy kept coming in every week. He would order three shots of whiskey and silently and reverently he'd drink each one, pause, then drink the next one, and then he'd leave without a word to anyone. He seemed to want to be left alone, so Boudreaux simply served him, watched him slowly drink each of his three shots of Jack Daniels, and then leave.

Finally his curiosity got the better of him and Boudreaux asked him, “How come you come here every Wednesday, you axe for t’ree shots of Jacques Danielle, drink dem slowly and den leave? Could you told me why you did dat?”

The man looked up from his drinks and said, “Well, Boudreaux, I was in Iraq with two of my best buddies. We’ve been Marines together since boot camp, and semper fi, and all that, I come here every Wednesday to drink a toast to their honor. Since they’re not here in the bar, I drink one shot for me and one for Joe and one for Charlie.”

“Mais, t’ank you for ‘splaining dat,” Boudreaux said and went to serve his other customers. Week after week, the guy kept coming back. Boudreaux would check to make sure he’d turned the pages on the calendar over the bar — if it wasn’t showing Wednesday, he knew he’d forgotten to tear the page off for the day.

Then one spring day his Wednesday Customer came in and only ordered two shots. Boudreaux didn’t say anything. He thought to himself, “Dis is really bad.” He kept thinking and wondering which one died in combat. Was it Joe or Charlie? This went on for three weeks and once more Boudreaux broke the silence.

“Can Ah axe you somet’ing?” Boudreaux began.

“Sure,” his Wednesday Customer replied.

“For months you’ve been coming in here every Wednesday ordering t’ree drinks and suddenly you only order two. I’m so sorry for you. Which one of your buddies died? Was it Joe or was it Charlie?”

“Oh, I see,” the Wednesday Customer said. “No, no, Joe and Charlie are both okay.”

“Den can you tole me why you drinking only two shots of Jacques Danielle?”

“Well, you see, it’s this way. I gave up drinking for Lent.”

5. RECIPE of the MONTH for October, 2004 from Bobby Jeaux’s Kitchen:
(click links to see photo of ingredients, preparation steps)
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Double Recipe: Courtboullion and Sauce Piquante

Background: This recipe came to me from my father, Hilman "Buster" Matherne (photo below), who made it many times over the years I was growing up and learning to enjoy it a little more each year. With the recipe you can cook either or both of the title dishes. This recipe quantity of ingredients will make 8 quarts of Redfish Courtboullion or 10 quarts of Sauce Piquante. That's pronounced, for the non-Cajun-qualified amongst you: Red-fish Koo-bee-yohn' and Sauce Pee-kahnt'.

Click Here to View All Ingredients] 1/2 to 1 stalk of celery
3 large yellow onions
2 bunches green onions
1 large bell pepper, green
8 oz fresh mushroom caps
Bertolli Extra-Lite Olive Oil
1 TB shrimp powder
12 strips of julienne sun-dried tomatoes
1 tsp chopped garlic
2 cans Tomato Sauce
2 cans Tomato Paste
2 cans Whole Tomatoes
1 can Rotel (diced Tomato & Green Chili peppers)
2 cans VEG-ALL (mixed vegetables)
2 small cans of Mushroom pieces and stems.
2 lbs or so of fileted Redfish (or marinated wild game) in 1" chunks
2 cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 cans of whole potatoes (chopped up, optional)

Chop and dice celery, onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Keep in separate containers.

Chop redfish filets into 1inch chunks or pieces. (Lemonfish, black drum, sheepshead are also excellent in a courtboullion).

Open all cans. Place large 12 quart heavy pot on stove and cover bottom with Extra Lite Olive Oil.

Cooking Instructions
Keep fire or heat on HIGH till told to lower. If you get interrupted, turn fire to Simmer and return to HIGH immediately. Place a Tsp of chopped onions or so into the center of the pot to let you know when the oil is ready to begin sautéing the greens. Add yellow onions and green onions first and sauté till yellow onions are translucent, stirring constantly.

Avoid adding water – if pot begins to brown onions, add next set of ingredients: celery, garlic, shrimp powder, bell pepper, and parsley (if any). Stir constantly on HIGH till mixture begins to dry out and brown slightly. Scrape bottom of pot while you stir – this is essential to keep from getting a burnt taste. Use flat-tipped spoon as shown here.

When additional liquid proves necessary, decant watery liquid from cans of mushrooms, VEG-ALL, Rotel. Then add one can at a time and stirring between each can (hold redfish and fresh mushrooms for last): VEG-ALL, Whole Tomatoes (cut tomatoes in can with long skinny knife as you pour the tomatoes into the pot), Mushroom pieces (in can), sun-dried strips of tomato, RoTel, and then all the red tomato cans of paste and sauce. Add cream of mushroom soup.

When complete mixture (sans Redfish and fresh mushrooms) comes to boil, Reduce HEAT to MED-LOW and stir well with large flat-tipped stirring and scraping spoon (or large spatula). Scrap away food from the bottom of the ingredients in the pot at least every 5 minutes till the mixture reaches a boil, then SIMMER for about 2 hours, STIRRING every 15 to 20 minutes to mix and scrape bottom of pot.

While mixture is SIMMERING, prepare LONG GRAIN/WILD RICE using Recipe at:

After SIMMERING is done: ADD REDFISH and fresh MUSHROOMS (both chopped)

STIR WELL and RETURN TO BOIL. Once at boil, set to LOW and let cook for twenty minutes, stirring and scraping every 5 minutes. Looks like this when done.

Serving Suggestion
READY TO SERVE over the Rice Mixture as shown at top.

Other option — Wild Game Sauce Piquante (pee-kahnt'):

Follow all instructions up to the adding of the Redfish and instead add the wild game at that point. Best bet: cook sauce overnight and let wild game marinate over night.

To prepare game: Cut into small pieces, one inch max. Squirrel, duck, alligator tail, venison may be used in combination. With squirrel and duck you can simply cook the meat with bones on it and take care when eating it to avoid eating the bones. After all it is wild game and suitable for adults. About four pounds of various meats may be added -- simply keep quantity under the remaining space left in your pot.

Marinade: Use your own recipe, or mix some vinegar and Worcestershire Sauce, A-1 Sauce, and several drops of Angostura Bitters, and lemon juice from a couple of lemons. Let marinate overnight as a minimum. This will remove all the gamey flavor. Decant the marinade and turn heat up HIGH under a black iron pot with its bottom covered with Extra Lite Olive Oil, add meat enough to cover bottom, fry until meat is completely browned, then move that meat aside and brown more meat until all the meat is browned.

Add meat to the pot of sauce which has been brought to a popping boil in the meantime and cook on MED to MED LOW for two hours or until meat falls off the bones or is tender enough to be eaten without cutting first with a knife.

Serve over the LONG GRAIN/WILD RICE mixture hot.

6. POETRY by BOBBY from ARJ2 Review of "Twillinger's Voyage":
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

             A Farmerly Quaff

We've replaced gods and spirits with fields and forces .
      Wait just a minute! Hold your horses!
      We've replaced hocus-pocus with a math-like focus.

We look at plowed fields and calculate the forces of the plow
      where formerly we looked at the farmerly human
      and his angels who directed the plow.

We may fill our glass with fields and forces,
      or with gods and spirits simply —
      But unless we quaff them both,
      Our glass is always half-full or half-empty.

7. REVIEWS and ARTICLES for October:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

1.) ARJ2: Putting Soul into Science by Michael Friedjung

This book is like a tiny gem — one might overlook it because of its size, but when it sparkles, one cannot ignore its brilliance. In its one hundred pages, the author takes us through the evolution of modern physics and the crisis it encountered in the 20th Century, when its very forte, its accuracy of measurement disappeared into the abyss of quantum physics. The house of physics, designed to be built on the rock of measurement by Galileo, proved to be built on sand. The accuracy of measuring sub-atomic particles was washed away by Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, to be replaced an another form of accuracy: that of measuring probabilities, which attained the accuracy formerly accorded the measuring of physical properties. In fact, physical properties disappear into air like the Cheshire Cat when you enter the Quantum Wonderland. And, like the Red Queen told Alice, the modern physicist can imagine six impossible things before breakfast on any given day, and the Cheshire Cat has been replaced by Schrödinger’s Cat, a cat that is visible as a not-dead, not-alive, quantum wave equation which requires a human being to open the box and observe the cat before its state is determined.

Read this tiny gem of a book and let it shine light into many dark places of your soul and bring courage to you. By putting soul into science, Michael Friedjung has helped to hand-code a Program Loader for our world computer of human beings which will enable us all to begin to perceive the Body, Soul, and Spirit of the life we all live, in peace and cooperation.

In this section I like to comment on events in the world, in my life, and in my readings which have come up during the month. These are things I might have shared with you in person, if we had had the opportunity to converse during the month. If we did, then you may recognize my words. If I say some things here which upset you, rest assured that you may skip over these for the very reason that I would likely have not brought up the subject to spoil our time together in person.

This month the good Padre hears the confession of someone who claims to have discovered the Secret of Immortality.

II. My Commentary for October:

1. Highway Design for Night Driving

Wouldn't you want someone who has played football to design football uniforms and equipment? Wouldn't you want someone who has gardened to design your gardening tools and equipment? Makes good sense, doesn't it? And yet the highways, streets, and roads you and I have to drive over were designed and tested by people who are under 60-years-old and have no idea of what it's like to drive at night as a 65-year-old or older!

It seems clear to me that 25 to 55 year-olds should not be designing highways that 65 to 85 year-olds and older have to drive on because they have never been 65 or 75 or 85 etc, and have no idea what is visible or not when driving at night! Scientific tests have shown that night vision falls off after 65 in human eyes, and yet the highways are designed, tested, and approved by humans who have no experiential evidence from their own senses about the situations they are creating for people whose age and capabilities they have never reached.

I may be wrong about this. There may be some older consultants assisting younger engineers design proper roads, streets, and highways for seniors, but going by the difficulty I have observed with my own 64-year-old eyes, there are very few if any.

Here's what I have observed: highways with worn-out striping with the center and edges of the road making it impossible or extremely difficult to tell where the edge of the road is. If the center stripe is there and the edge stripe is missing, one can hug the left edge of the roadway.

The other big area of difficulty is making turns either left or right turns and determining for certain what is roadway and what is not. Reflectors and reflective striping are often completely missing, and the 35-year-old highway engineer testing the roadway will never know the problems this will cause all those 65 and older drivers. When asked about the increase of accidents by those same older drivers, they will likely say, "They shouldn't be driving," in the age-old strategm of blaming the victim for their own youthful shortsightedness.

2. Apology in Order

It is well-known that a presidential candidate and Jane Fonda both said harsh words about the US troops in Vietnam. In 1988 Fonda apologized for her words, but her comrade has yet to do so. My Cassel's Concise Dictionary has this definition for "apology" -- (1) "a regretful acknowledgment of offense" and (2) "a wretched substitute for the real thing." If the definition(2) sounds like the aforementioned candidate for president, my apology(1).

To those who accused folks at a recent convention of belittling the Purple Heart awards by wearing Bandaids with a purple heart on their person, someone needs to remind them that the pretender to the throne also belittled the Purple Heart by wearing them on his person without having been wounded to deserve them. One Purple Heart without a visible wound is understandable, but three? Those three awards seem but apologies(2) compared to the Purple Hearts awarded to real heroes.

3. Hurricanes and Other Mass Events

Hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, mudslides, avalanches all share a common attribute: they are unpredictable and may inflict severe property damage and human injury. This past hurricane season has inflicted both on many Floridians and Alabamians among others, and our hearts go out to those mourning the loss of loved ones and those who have lost their homes and property. We wish them all the best as they begin the rebuilding of their lives.

In my own striving to understand how these events enter a person's life, I recall the devastation I saw after Hurricanes Betsy and Camille, both of which I lived through during the latter part of the 1960s. My family and I huddled in the upper floor of a two-story double as the eye of Betsy blew over us with her 100+ mph winds about 3 am. Then I walked down a street in Arabi where floods waters had destroyed my wife's uncle's home. It was the most depressing sight I had ever experienced: the contents of every home were arrayed on the sidewalk next to the street, completely ruined. The sidewalks were covered with 4 or more inches of black slimy mud, as were the driveways, and the floors of his house I had volunteered to help clean up. The scum line on the walls in his house was at the ceiling. We punched holes in the lower parts of the walls to let the mud out of them, and then pushed the mud out of the house with brooms.

If we have been lucky in the years since, it was the horrendous nature of the storm we experienced back then that has saved us from future storms. That may sound like a rather unscientific statement to make, but science only knows about random events and tends to treat human beings and hurricanes as if they were billiards balls which randomly bounce off of each other. It was twenty-five years ago when I studied the works of Jane Roberts that I became to see that these were not random events, but rather hurricanes and people had an essential relationship with each other. People, rightly understood, are the steering currents for hurricanes. By extension one can discern a similar relationship between other natural catastrophes and the people they affect.

The major work in which Jane Roberts dealt with this issue was The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events. Her work on this book was a result of a large hurricane she managed to survive in Elmira, New York, one which flooded her own home and office. If you've been wondering about the unusual patterns of hurricanes this season, take a look at my review of her book by Clicking Here.

My reviews are not intended to replace the purchasing and reading of the reviewed books, but rather to supplant a previous reading or to spur a new reading of your own copy. What I endeavor to do in most of my reviews is to impart a sufficient amount of information to get the reader comfortable with the book so that they will want to read it for themselves. My Rudolf Steiner reviews are more detailed and my intention is bring his work to a new century of readers by converting his amazing insights into modern language and concepts.
