It's also the day that his longest piece of music finally had a chord change. His thinking helped shaped my own thoughts on what music can be, and I'm talking down to the basic definition of music. He was a brilliant man, and I love listening to him talk, he had this calm, and positive air about him.

I'll agree with you on that! He was a good, dear friend to me the last 20 years of his life.
I've been to Halberstadt to hear one of the "changes." Also, it's surprising how often the
changes happen on his birthday.There's another one that falls exactly 10 years from
yesterday. ...and, of course, it was begun on his birthday in 2001 with over 500 days
without (intentional) sound.

If there are ones, they've never been sent to me or brought to my notice.

I was considering putting Cage or Fred Rogers for my philosopher.

What I most vividly remember is the devil riding waves of fire and pills following us as we were driving to the hospital. My psychedelic experiences never included hallucinations that intense, maybe experiencing that at an early age prepped me for it or some ****. When my trips go dark it's usually on a cerebral level.

Why don't you want humans to colonize space?
I get the sense that it'll end up being an escape route for the rich to leave the impoverished with a scorched earth, especially if blood diamond musk leads the way. I'm also fairly certain that it would lead to interplanetary warfare within two or three generations of colonization.

Just the term colonization is loaded.

Hopefully this isn’t oneupmanship but when I was a kid I used to hallucinate like crazy - audio and visual ****.

Sounds awesome in comparison to a bunch of rocks just floating thru space for nothing.
