Greetings from Spockgirl Musings, where logic rules, but the frailties of
human nature, genetic inadequacies and hormonal imbalances wreak havoc.

I couldn't agree more...

Hadn't looked at horoscopes online for quite some time, but went agoogling and clicked a few things. I cracked open a fortune cookie and woke up the Chinese Fortune Dragon, the latter of which revealed "A book tightly shut is but a block of paper."

I think I like the idea that it is more like Schrodinger's cat, neither living nor dead until you open it and the observation by you is what the book really is.

Isn't that the point though? You MUST open the book... or the box... in either case, in order to determine what lies within. This reminds me of something I said, after someone told me that I should use moisturizer, due to my face wrinkles. My response was "The human body is just a shell for the soul." It was not taken very well. Hmmm... now you have me thinking (not that I need to do more of that)... Am I the book, the box... or the cat? I am an inanimate object subject to the whims of nature, but also a creature that can be observed and analyzed as both living and dead.
