Gone to the Dogs

 In Scarlet Town, the end is near

The Seven Wonders of the World are here
The evil and the good livin' side by side

I have been happy lately because Eros stole my heart away from inside my chest of stone ...a line of fortresses on my inner empire....a watchtower walked, and time is growing late, and we ought not to talk falsely anymore...

We are apt to fall into the error of thinking that the facts are simple because simplicity is the goal of our quest. The guiding motto in the life of every natural philosopher should be, "Seek simplicity and distrustRead full post »
