    I have Le Livre de Mormon. But I'm not recommending it for your library.

    For dream books I'd recommend Conscious Dreaming or the newer Active Dreaming by Robert Moss. The Secret History of Dreaming, also by him, is a good read.

    I checked out the Urantia book, but it didn’t resonate with me. But if Wizzy wants to be rid of his, I’ll certainly pay postage just to have it as possible reference.
    The fact that it doesn't resonate is precisely why you should read it. It's operating at a different frequency...higher or lower you would never know unless you at least looked past the cover. Oh the pain of it all.

    Good point. You never know where important puzzle pieces come from. I’ll pick it up at some point.

    Btw, right now I’m researching electric ATVs as the next Batmobile...

    Yeah, I’m convinced the Book of Mormon relates some part of the actual history of the American Indians. So doing some research ther. I might spend some time at the local Mormon Ward as well. Btw, If you are offering to send it, let me know costs and I’ll PayPal it to you. But you may want to keep it.

    Ok, noted. I’ve got to get my dreams revel up again. All the fun ones have gone away.

    Ok, this is a area I’ve not spent much time in. Thinking on starting a herb garden to go with my brown thumb.

    We may all be there at some point. Now looking into those Japanese toilets that clean your bottom without the need for toilet paper...cutting trees for toilet paper bothers me.

    Hey no joke, I keep that book close, but seriously, not touching, to the New American...

    I wondered if modwiz had died and gone to Heaven. It's been absolutely AGES! Nice to hear your take.
    So what of a constructive nature have you been doing with your time?

    Staying out of forums, doing youtube videos. Currently working on songs that need finishing so they can be posted too. Working on a concept for a 'performance video'. Keeps me busy and sane.

    Death and I speak every day and we both agree the time is not now.

    I love everybody too, the like part can get challenging. However, I do like Aragorn and spare him from my posts when "moods" set in.

    I'm glad you answered, Modwiz. I didn't want to speak for you. And I'm stoked to hear you're working on some more music. Please do share when you're ready.

    I like Argon as well and the cool thing is: he gets down frequently from his mountain to converse with us mear mortals in the forum. His cosmology is weird, but fun to consider. To boot, his humor is dark and twisted like mine. The bad thing is, as a nonnative English speaker he writes better than I do. The insult is doubled as he is Flemish.
