Day 58 of Antaran's Journal has been revealed.

Muddasheep's Daydream - Part 2

How close can our scientists look? Molecules, atoms, quarks, gluons,... If you think about it we could basically take a closer look infinitely and probably would always find something. But what? And why is it holding us together? While you're standing there and waiting for the bus to arrive, is there any reason for the thing that holds us together to not just let go and call it a day? You sneeze and your body collapses like sand, like Imhotep in The Mummy. Gesundheit!

Why do we still need to eat anyway? Why can't we just take the sandwhich and press it against our belly and it quickly gets absorbed through the skin? Technically everything is made of the same basic entity that tells our little quarks and gluons and neutrons and protons what to do. Just like a giant screen consisting of thousands of pixels, and every pixel merely appears as a different color.

So, maybe you might want to pull yourself together, you could fall apart any minute. And I don't want to be the one discovering you afterwards.

My previous personal website has been removed (all except the startpage) and all old websites lead directly to the content on the farm now.

And, believe it or not, this news section features comments now (called 'Notes'). It requires a PHQ account.

I had a bunch of thoughts recently, and I'm going to throw these at you starting today, adding another one as soon as possible.

Muddasheep's Daydream - Part 1

You're driving in your car on the highway and suddenly out of nowhere gravity stops working. Slowly your car and all surrounding cars would drift into air, with nothing to hold on to. There's nothing you can do about it and the last few minutes in your life while drifting farther and farther away from earth's surface, getting less and less oxygen to breathe, you'll think about how this was possible. It's not, you say? How come? Just because we and our physicists can't explain it? That's a lame excuse. Think about the effects! Just like we're relying on electricity and the internet today, gravity is something nobody would expect suddenly to disappear. Imagine half the world's population would just fly away, next to trains, planes, houses, millions of rocks, trees, cars, toys, and so on. Rescue teams trying to get people down from skyscrapers where they found one open window that saved their lives, watching images on television of large chains of humans that hold on to each other, reaching into sky several meters, the lowest human holding on to a mere root in the ground, waiting to get help. Imagine the afterlife, the remaining people getting used to no gravity on earth. News channel reporters appearing in suits with magnetic boots, electricity cables not hanging down, just hovering between the towers. Could there be a life outside? It would be extremely dangerous without any safety regulations. Scientists around the globe would try to find the reason behind the loss of gravity, finding it ridiculous and terrifying at the same time.

What would you do? You're walking under the open sky and suddenly gravity defies humanity's physical laws and you slowly drift out into space, nothing to hold on to. Would you laugh? I thought so.

Antaran's Journal has been updated with Day 57. I've also corrected a few spelling and grammar mistakes in all previous entries and changed a few minor things here and there. I'll try to add more entries in the coming days.

The CD you see to the left contains all 14 tracks of the album Remains in high quality. The simplistic booklet that comes in the CD case contains all lyrics and artworks from the Remains lyrics page. And you can expect a few of my fingerprints, but those are free of charge. Altogether it costs $9, plus $9 for shipping and packaging (I'll use super soft envelopes to ensure the CD arrives at your place without any damage), so $18.00 (€13.74) in total.

This CD is available until the end of March!

To order the CD simply use the following button to pay and send me your address through PayPal:

I just had this idea for a t-shirt in my mind for a few weeks now and I made the design and bought the shirt for myself. Now I thought maybe one of you would like to have one of these as well. I'll leave this one up for about a month and maybe I come up with another then.

The t-shirt I'm talking about is the Patience T-Shirt. It reads:

"Patience is called 'Patience' because you'll need about twenty minutes of patience."

Price: $19.99 / €15.21 requires a credit card. If you don't have a credit card you can send me your address and the size of the tshirt that you want, donate $19.99 + $7 international shipping costs through paypal (paypal doesn't need a credit card) and I'll send it to you directly from cafepress.
