Messages don't imply anything. Any inference comes from your mind. And what
a silly question. If there's nothing "out there," what am I typing on? You
are living in an intellectual kaleidoscope, refining abstractions fractally
with no end possible. But to what end, David, to what end? As Kurt Vonnegut
says in his latest novel, "Timequake":
