    On Love

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    There’s a quote about love, that most mysterious of human emotions, that I’ve come across that seems to be apt for how I’ve been feeling recently.

    It’s from a British author named Neil Gaiman, and it is as follows: 

    "Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Lov…

    Benedict plays Limbo

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    Pope Benedict’s removal of limbo from the Catholic Church’s doctrines raises an important and interesting point. It is reasonably safe to assume that there exists a specific way that reality actually is. There are different models that people subscribe to that attempt to explain the way things are. The current most popular scientific theory states that approximately 13,703,987,124 years, three months, and fifteen days ago, the universe exploded into existence from an infinitely dense, infinitely small singularity. The matter that we see all around us condensed out of a soup of energy into quarks, leptons, protons, neutrons, electrons, x-tons, and hundreds of other different particles; ever since that world creating explosion the universe h…

    They Care

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    In Douglas Adams’ work of genius, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a trilogy in five parts, in one of the books, I think maybe it could be The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, I do remember it was the one about Krikkit, a character, probably Ford Prefect, makes a comment.

    Referring to the killer white krikkiter robots, he says something along the lines of they care, they care more, we don’t, not quite as much, they win; apathy will always lose out against fanaticism, there’s no reason to believe that that isn’t the case.

    In the abortion debate there are pro-life/anti-choicers, pro-choice/pro-death/anti-lifers, and those such as I who don’t really give much of a fuck one way or the other.

    While a pro-choice proponent might hold that…

    Theology and Mortality

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    Nothing packs the same devastating wallop, a powerful blow to the gut, like the realization of the inexorable march towards death. For as long as I’ve been able to comprehend such things, I’ve known, in an abstract way, about my mortality. However, knowing that, and being able to say “yes, I know I’m going to die”, is much different from comprehending the real implications of such a fact. Knowing that at some point, exactly the same as right now, be it tomorrow or in 2073, there will be a moment when I draw my last breath, think my last thought, see the last image that I ever will see. Nothing has ever felt worse than thinking those thoughts, imagining how it would be like, ever since I first fully realized that, when I must’ve been eleven…

    All it would take

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    I am here, all of us are here, because of an incomprehensible chain of a series of events, each of them as vital as any other, any of which, if they had happened to happen differently, would’ve negated our existence.

    If anything, any part of it, no matter how seemingly small or trivial, hadn’t happened, I would not be here right now.

    Possibly, someone else would be here in my place, or no one would be here at all.

    If at the moment of conception, or to be a little more accurate, and pedantic, slightly before it, your father had sneezed, which caused him to shift his position ever so slightly, the lucky sperm that won the race, and specifies half of your genes, would’ve been a different one than the one that it was.

    That different one would only…

    On Import

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    In this world of ours, this wonderful, decrepit, horrific world of ours, there are people.

    Not only that, but there are many people, very many people, billions and billions of people.

    There are short people and tall people, fat people and thin people, various shades of brown and pink people, people who pray to Allah, people who pray to Satan, people who pray to no one at all, and even people who pray to Joe Pesci.

    Some of them are presidents, a few are kings, some are senators, and some are bakers.

    Some of these people are mechanics, clerks, dentists, nurses, teachers, thieves, drug dealers, and pimps.

    Some of these groups are more numerous, and some are famous, infamous, and unknown.

    Some follow the flock, and some are trail blazers.

    All of thes…

    Why write, right?

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    Why do I write? Why should I write? I’m not all that sure why I do, or whether doing so does any good or not. Perhaps it’s some type of a neurological defect, a compulsion to put my thoughts to paper, which usually do, even when where they end up doesn’t have the slightest bit of paper, just bits and bytes.

    Most of what I write, I write for me. I think it might be because most of the time I’m thinking, about all sorts of things, some random, and in wanting to make sense, or a reasonable facsimile of sense, of everything that’s going on around everywhere, and if I can collect all those disparate things floating around in my consciousness, if I can structure it into something that’s coherent, something that can make sense to other people, I c…

    On God

    April 27, 2015 by Zackjk

    If there is a god, one that created all of existence (save for itself, I think. A god that existed would necessarily be part of existence, but it couldn't create itself), then it would follow that such a god wouldn't be absolutely perfect in every way, as is posited by the many people that believe in it.

    A perfect being should be content merely to exist, in need and in want of nothing. What could possible disturb the perfect god's equilibrium to cause it to want to create the universe?

    The act of creation would mean that god had a desire, a need for something, something that it didn't have. A perfect being would have everything it needed, everything that it might possible want.

    Therefore, at the very least, god's not perfect, because in desir…

    Any bounded possibility, given an infinite amount of time, can be considered not only an eventuality, but an absolute certainty. This follows because infinity is not merely a big number, it's an insanely, massively, enormously, gigantically bigger number than you can even begin to imagine. If you place a limit on something, no matter how large or liberal that limit is, that thing will happen not just once, but again, and again, and again an infinite number of times if it's given an infinite amount of time to run its course. For example, novels generally have from 60,000 to 200,000 words. That's a large number, but it is still as far from infinity as three is. The English language has, and this is very approximately, 988,968 words that have…

    Ever watch Person of Interest btw? It's one of my favorite shows. Sometimes I wonder what would happen if a machine like The Machine actually came online... Would it be The Machine, or Skynet? Would it love us, or want to exterminate us? Would it be an ever perfecting Artificial Super Intelligence with empathy, or would it be a psychopathic monster beyond our control? Would it be Her? The girl I fell in love with, we met accidentally on reddit, she was there for /r/SuicideWatch... I was there for /r/AskReddit... And I fell in love with her through my Smart Phone, a Galaxy S4... It's like Smart Phones are real Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, already in our pocket... Think about... That's why digital watches are such a neat idea, and the n…

    Hi guys! A freak wormhole has opened up into the strange pocket universe known as "Hitchhiker's - Alternate Phase". Our other heroes are currently at a loose end at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe - and once they've sobered up a bit, they're going to need something to do. no, after that. Yes, that too. Where to next? Any suggestions gratefully accepted, but hurry, as this wormhole must close at the end of the month. (And just for the record, that squeaky noise is probably Douglas spinning in his little pot.)

    I tried to post this in the forums, but it didn't work.

    Seeing as a large amount of content in the movie is vastly to the other forms of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, I propose for all movie information to be stored in a seperate section of aricles.

    Example:


    Fish live in water


    Fish still live in water.

    Obviously that isn't an actual article, but it does make some articles confusing when they contain both book/Tv series/radio play information as well as information from the movie that contradicts them.  I know all the different versions have differences, but the movie is far more noticible, to the point wherer it affects the intregrity of the articles.

    Last Human?

    December 5, 2013 by Whenworldscollide2

    I know that Hitchhiker's came much sooner than Red Dwarf- but anyone who read chapter 1 The Salmon of Doubt would read about about, if I remember the quote well enough, a man called Dave, hang-gliding over Daveland (formerly California), 1.2 MYA the extinction of the human race. Sound familiar?

    Future Prospects

    September 14, 2011 by Tomrowley

    Hi guys, I'm really hoping I can get this wiki kick-started back on track as it seems not many people are on this wiki trying to fill it all out.

    Hopefully I can get admin privileges so I can have a bit more freedom with the wiki.

    I thinkn the biggest task for now at least will be getting more people as editors so please if you visit the wiki and notice something missing please fill in the missing parts! :)
