Exposing the black poison in the soul of the world.

Another funny thought: Fred Reed in one of his essays herehttp://www.fredoneverything.net/Scientism.shtmlhas asked why scientists would say "John is gone" after his death, but they would not ask "Where has John gone?". He attributes that to their narrow-mindedness. Well, if I see someone wreck a wristwatch with a hammer, I wouldn't ask where it has gone, would I? :) Ditto if it rusts through. I see myself more as a process than an object (in the wider sense, not the programming one) so that question simply doesn't make sense. On the other hand, someone running an experiment and expecting a miracle to happen would not make a good scientist, would he?Curiously, without a proxy running I cannot even view that WWW address, unlike the new one he migrated to. WTF?
It's 'broader', not 'wider'.
I wonder, what the the distribution of answers would be among different groups to this simple question:"Is the universe benevolent, indifferent, or malevolent?"
And in his another essay about the 'impossibility of ants' he doesn't go deep enough into the rabbit hole. If the ant to him appears to be such a marvel, then what would he write about predatory ciliates? An active hunter in a 3D environment and a single cell at the same time? Utterly impossible! :)

Use a 4D Lorentzian manifold to represent the search space in question.
