Out Our Way: To begin the new millennium (AGAIN!) on New Year’s Day, I got up late and immediately started some black eye peas and cabbage with red potatoes from Buster & Bobby’s garden with the cabbage. Also baked four sweet potatoes. Del and I ate about 1 PM and it was all very delicious and satisfying, in a bodily way that let me know it was a tremendous boon for our bodies to have eaten the traditional foods for health, prosperity, and good luck on New Year’s Day in New Orleans. Didn’t watch the bowl games, but worked on getting my Digest out and in getting my Master Quotes files into .html and on-line at – if you haven’t checked them out, take a look at them now and bookmark the webpage with your Favorites.

Playoff fever was high in New Orleans. The team at the mouth of the Mississippi River beat the team at the middle of the river in the first playoff game (NO Saints beat St. Louis Rams). Then the Saints went to the upper end of the same river to beat the team up there [MN Vikings]. If the Giants had lost and the Saints won, the Saints would have returned to the mouth of the Mississippi in the Superdome to beat the Eagles and go to the Super Bowl. Well, wait till next year when the Saints are on schedule to be the first ever team to win the Super Bowl in its home town! The next weekend we visited our offspring in Texas. I spent Friday with my two 2-yr-old granddaughters Molly and Evelyn and my new grandson Aidan at a local park in Bellaire. The next day we spent with Jim in Kountze, where he and I watched the Saints lose their game to the Vikings. I learned from that experience when somebody in Texas says, “Let’s go across the street to watch the game,” that we’ll likely be getting in a pickup truck and driving for a mile or two!

The next weekend I was on the road again, this time to take my brother David to go duck hunting in Cheneyville with my son-in-law Wes on his rice field lease. We got our limit of ducks and had a great time. Back home I had two annual meetings to attend, our Timberlane Association and my Round Table Club. On my way to one of the meetings I got a disturbing report of a broken pipe at our apartments, which turned out to be a broken hot water heater, which I had replaced in a couple of days.

I watched with interest the inauguration of our new president Bush and noted this amazing quote from his speech:

“After the Declaration of Independence was signed, Virginia statesman John Page wrote to Thomas Jefferson”:

‘We know the Race is not to the swift, nor the Battle to the strong. Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm.’”

We are lucky to have a moral person in the White again after an eight year absence.

On the 25th I gave a talk on doyletics to my club. I started talking about Gregor Mendel, how I felt as Mendel might have felt some 120 years ago talking to his club about his work with smooth and wrinkled peas and how the attendees might have reacted, thinking “smooth and wrinkled peas, what foolishness!” never guessing the incredible advances in science that would proceed a century later in the field of genetics that sprang from Mendel’s pioneering work. My lecture was well received, and I may do a follow-up talk later. Anyone who would like their club to hear from me about Doyletics, please contact me, and I’ll considering doing so.

On January 30th, the day after I got notified that my Dolphin Novel, The Spizznet File, had been published and available for purchase, I stopped by to visit my Aunt Carolyn in Bourg, a small bayou town in South Louisiana. She told me about a dolphin that was swimming in the Bayou across the street. We walked across the street, and I shot this photo as the Dolphin surfaced. The dolphin was swimming behind the first home that my parents lived in shortly before I was born. No dolphins have ever been spotted this far up Bayou Terrebonne before. I heard that they were gone several days later.

This month, we peek in on Boudreaux doing his math homework at home as a ‘petit garçon’, a young Cajun kid. Then, back as an adult, we listen in one day as Boudreaux discovers, to his horror, that a strange company had come to his small town of Cutoff. [Thanks to Ann Keller for the first one and Dyer Moore for the second.]
Boudreaux is sitting next to the wood stove under the Cajun chandelier (a light bulb hanging down from the ceiling with a string operated switch). His mother walks past and hears him saying, at the top of his voice, "Two plus five, the sonuvabitch is seven. Three plus six, the sonuvabitch is nine". His mother, a gentle Cajun woman, is shocked by what he is saying. "Mon petit fils, what are you doing?! Why are you saying that?!" Boudreaux answered, "Mais, I'm doing my Math homework that the teacha gave me." She said, "And is that what your teacher taught you?" Boudreaux replied, "Yes, ma’am. Four plus four, the sonuvabitch is eight. Jest like dat, yeah." The next day, Boudreaux’s mother, worried about the education her son was getting, went to Boudreaux's school to talk to the teacher. She said to his Math teacher, "I would like to know what you are teaching my son in Math!” The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning to sums or addition." Boudreaux's mother asked, "And...are you teaching them to say two plus two, the sonuvabitch is four?" The teacher began laughing and when she stopped laughing she said, “No, Mrs. Boudreaux, “What I taught them to say was, ‘Two plus two the sum of which is four.’”

Meanwhile, as adults again, our deux amis, Boudreaux & Broussard, went out in the gulf fishing. They were gone a couple of months. On their return, they noticed a Taco Bell had been built while they were away. Boudreaux turns to Broussard and says, "Mais, looka dere! We not gone no time and dem damn Mexicans done come over here and built a telephone company!!"

Cajun glossary: “petit fils”(teet fay) is little son, “petit garçon” (teet gahson) Note that in conversation the “pe” of “petit” is usually dropped. “deux amis” is “two friends”. “beaucoup” (boo coo) means “a lot of”. One of our honored readers in France (Thanks, Marc!) wrote to me about the correct spelling of the popular Cajun word that I spelled kooyohn, which is what it sounds like. Here’s what I wrote to Marc Lauzin in France. Thanks for the spelling of couillon! Je est couillon not to be able to spell it correctly, but as you can imagine I only heard Cajun as a child and never got to spell any of it. My grandmother spoke it exclusively until my mother's oldest sister began school and then she taught herself English. I looked the word up in my Cajun dictionary and it gives "testicle" for the feminine form and "nut, joker, etc" for the masculine. It's a good translation for when we call someone in English a "nut"! He's acting couillon. Plus “nuts” is an English synonym for “testicles”. During a radio show, Marilyn Monroe had to reach into Bob Hope's pants pocket for something and said, "I feel funny doing this." Bob said, "Feel a little further down and you'll feel nuts!" Famous joke, actually happened on the radio, may have been some other starlet.

For those who haven’t availed themselves of the chance to read any of my new 30 reviews on-line at click away and Enjoy! Mercifully short, these are reviews of books that I read prior to 1987. New reviews will be added each month and I will keep you informed as they are via this Digest. The initial set has been completely loaded now, so if you tried earlier and got nothing, they’re all on-line now. There are reviews of The Hunting Hypothesis, Psychosynthesis, The Unknown Reality, How To Read a Book, How To Make a Speech, and Time’s Arrow among other titles.

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

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: The Body in the Mind by Mark Johnson

What brought me to Johnson's latest book, The Mind in the Body, were two things: 1) my current research in the nascent science of doyletics and 2) the subtitle which reads: "The Bodily Basis of Meaning, Imagination, and Reason." If meaning, imagination, and reason have a bodily basis, that basis must be doylic in nature, that is, the stored physical body states (doyles) from one's pre-five-year-old personal experiences must form the basis for how we think and reason! We understand MORE IS UP because we each have some doyle of experiencing UP: when we are under five, almost everyone is taller than we are and we have to look to see them. The doyles associated with looking up are stored as full body experiences or doyles, and later in life when we think UP, those doyles of UP will triggered and those doyles form the very basis for our understanding of the meaning of UP. We grow UP, that is, we become MORE as we grow bigger. We are vertical and erect beings, and we, from the perspective of our head, go UP as we grow. That leads us to our understanding of MORE IS UP. To a horizontally arranged animal, such as a snake, the concept of MORE IS UP would have little meaning.

Doyle Henderson in his pioneering work established the basis for all feelings and emotions being due to stored physical body states (doyles) from before five. What Johnson's work has brought home to me is that our very basis for understanding the meaning of the words we speak to one another stems from the idiosyncratic doyles we have stored in our individual bodies before five years old. This hypothesis is equally true for each of us, no matter what language we speak or country we live in. How this storage of early childhood physical body states or doyles impacts what we currently know as memory, understanding, and consciousness is dealt with in my two recent reviews: Strange, Familiar, and Forgotten and The Mystery of Consciousness. In this review I will deal with how these doyles provide the foundation of what we mean and understand by the words meaning and understanding. And all this is thanks to the fine work of Mark Johnson on the bodily basis of meaning, imagination, and reason itself.

It is clear to me, even at this early stage of the development of the theory and science of doyletics, that the insights it provides into the nature of consciousness will place its importance on a par with that of its sister science, genetics, by the middle of the 21st Century.

2.) ARJ2: Galileo’s Daughter by Dava Sobel

As Galileo wrote about all the new things he discovered in the heavens, it upset the philosophers of the time in a way he said,

[page 67] “as if I had placed these things in the sky with my own hands in order to upset Nature and overturn the sciences. They seemed to forget that the increase of known truths stimulates the investigation, establishment, and growth of the arts; not their diminution or destruction. Showing a greater fondness for their own opinions than for truth, they . . . hurled charges and published numerous writings filled with vain arguments. . .”

To Read the full review of this innovator and heretic:

3.) ARJ2: Man and the World of the Stars by Rudolf Steiner

In the following passage Steiner explains the connection between what happens as soon as (directly) we die or go to sleep.

[page 2] When we are living between death and rebirth we cannot, however, speak in the same sense of what is ‘within’ us. For directly we pass through the gate of death, even directly we go to sleep, the conditions of our existence are such that the whole universe may be designated as our inner being.

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.
