Out of Africa.

This is the craziest thing I've seen all day: A Luftwaffe pilot just learned that he shot down his favorite author, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, 63 years ago.

Via Kottke.

That story also links to this news that the wreck of the HMAS Sydney has finally been found. For no particular reason, I was reading this page about the ship's disappearance just a few days ago. Strange world.

A lot of folks don't realize what's really going on here. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice of coincidence that lays on top of everything (or maybe is interwoven throughout all of it).

Give you an example, i.e. show you what I mean:

suppose you're thinking about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, "plate", or "shrimp", or "plate of shrimp" out of the blue, no explanation. No point in looking for one, neither. It's all part of a cosmic unconsciousness.

Bezt regards,
