I absolutely agree. Maybe I should make that clearer? My arguement was
with the statement that the human body is a "better" insturment than a
for setting up such vibrations. I think your auto-design example is an

For Crissakes Reed!! Pay more attention to what you read!!!!

That was not the statement!!!

I said that a violin is actually more effective at setting up
sympathetic vibrations in another violin that in your ear--- by small
degrees. Why don't you go and sit in an orchestra pit while someone is
warming up? you will hear vibes coming off of all kinds of things--
Tympanies, the snare, any large brass---

A tuning fork will sympathetically vibrate another tuning fork because
they have similar shape and compostition. It will not vibrate a rock as

This isn't anything different than saying that diverse objects might
chemical characteristics and thus react with a certian chemical
identically or
that as a result they all might, for instance, look red.

Reed, you are so full of bullshit your eyes are brown.

Consult a resource on resonant frequency before you embarass yourself
any further.

Watch the film of the bridge in Washington state that flipped around
like a ribbon in the wind when a gale force storm matched the
structure's inherent "resonant frequency". It's basic physics and your
making me sound like a hippy on glue.

But your spell has got to jive with the intersubective
symphony of science if you want to shift it's magic out of the parts of
meme-space we hold on faith and towards those areas that are well

What part of this basic physical law do you think isn't part of the
"intersubjective symphony of science" ?

But then don't whine about how the arts get funded.
In other words:
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
I don't believe in circumstances.
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up
and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't
find them, make them.

My my you cast a wide net when you are cornered.

I'm not a whiner. My past references to how arts are funded were an
attempt to map how memes spread in the arts world-- that is derivitive
work is funded and work that disrupts or casts too acurate a negative
reflection of the status quo is relegated to the "fringe" of North
America's cultural experience. And I wasn't refering to the ethical
position of the work-- but the aesthetic languages and narrative styles.

Audiences who's aesthetic training comes from tv tend to funnel other
work through the same narrative structure. It is hard to sit through an
opera if you have only seen TV. You have to train yourself for it.

But all of this is so off the point reed. My career consists of creating
my own circumstances. I have been self employed from day one. (and
successful at it) So I don't fit your whiny waif model very well.
