The Tornado Sutra of the 69th Patriarch of Klang

Sunday, May 15th, 2005

The Tornado Sutra of the 69th Patriarch of KlangTranslated into English from Yemmish by Baruch Spinoza and Benjamin Franklin

The Tornado Sutra contains 7,000 enumerated propositions each of which have exactly 21 words all of which are bi-syllabic (this was true of the Yemmish edition as well). The first 500 propositions of The Tornado Sutra contain instructions regarding how and when to read the remaining propositions (for example, propositions 6,500 to 6,700 may only be read while lying down and clothed in wool). Propositions 501 to 4,000 detail procedures for building an object of pure thought. The construction of the object is supposed to take several years and each piece of the object must be visualized for several days before it can be added to the structure. Propositions 4,001 to 6,999 detail procedures for destroying the object and forgetting it utterly one piece at a time. The final proposition hints at what effects the vacated thought-shape might have on the mind of he practitioner after the successful destruction of the object.

Window Shopping
Originally uploaded by clevortrevor.

The Smax Attax photocontest is over and the winner of the flikr pro account is for her awesome pic “Window Shopping.” It was tough to pic [sic] a winner. So many entries were top notch and several people even figured out the the rules. But I gotta tell you, I prefer peeps to landscapes every time and any suggestion that peeps are just broken robots, well, I'm a sucker for that sorta stuff.

Thanks to all who played.
