Out of mind? Quite.


Space is big. Period.

Or as Doug Adams more fully describes:
"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space."

And then there's this rock.
This piece of rock hurtling through the infinity of space for no apparent reason. Since I've brought him into the discussion, I might as well note that Doug Adams also mentions that the planet Earth is "Mostly Harmless".

And finally, there's me.
Just a speck on this rather large (relative to me, that is) blue-green planet. Just one of over six billion sentient beings that sweep across the face of this planet. And with all THAT goin on in the background, i gess it IS a bit too much to expect me to NOT create boundaries around myself; boundaries of the mind, really. But boundaries that primarily center around geography.

Why in God's good name am I typing this in at this hour of the night? Well *cough cuz i guess it's some sort of weak excuse for not bothering to look beyond my own lil corner of the world, wherever that corner may be. Forget abt being bothered...I guess this is more of a way to plead ignorance, an ignorance that is more casual than it is studied and pointed.

The Earth may be Mostly Harmless as far as the galaxy and the rest of the Universe is concerned. But there's far more going wrong right here on terra-firma that ought to concern you and me. Then again, how much can you really keep track of? How much can you care? How much can you relate, to things that happen out of sight? Isn't "out of sight" truly "out of mind"?

Maybe I can help with that.
Atleast as far as Iraq is concerned.

It'll have you riveted.
It'll have you imagine.
It'll have you think.
