ZeldaHanson, This is a question for you; I've always wondered: What is Atlas standing on if he has the world on his shoulders?

Ha! It isn't supposed to be taken literally.

Haven't you ever heard of the book Atlas Shrugged? Read it and you'll have the answer to your question.

Glenn Gould in regards to music:

The problem begins when one forgets the artificiality of it all, when one neglects to pay homage to those designations that to our minds-to our reflect senses, perhaps-make of music an analyzable commodity. The trouble begins when we start to become so impressed by the strategies of ours systematized thought that we forget that it does relate to an obverse, that it is hewn from negation, that it is but a very small security against the void of negation which surrounds it.

Oh! So that's what it's all about... I've not read Atlas Shrugged, but it's now on my list... probably after I finish The Alhambra.
