I suppose intuition feels closer to what I was expressing.

Thank you. Admittedly, I'm not at all familiar with recent research. I suppose it would be quite the cognitive feat to describe wordless thought in words. I didn't intend to attempt that...but I do wonder (fantasize even) how humans could experience it's existence in a concrete way. I don't know.

Thank you for liking my poem, Ficus. I saw your homage (?) poem in the ascemic group. It was very nice. :}

That's a long time to be doing mail art. How fun!  You must have quite the collection of mail. I don't have a very large archive yet but it could easily threaten to overtake my small art space if I let it. :-) It was nice hearing from you. Take care.

Fike, well he certainly had his "punk Rock" like moments, but he was an actor named Tony Curtis. I have on my kitchen table, my reply to your December mailing to me - hope to get it to the Post Office today. Best KV

NOLA has really blossomed since Katrina. You should get down there sometime. It's so laid back. I live in the Midwest and it's so sterile here! I miss the sensuality of New Orleans so much. I'm actually flying out on Wednesday to catch a little of the pre-Mardi Gras festivity.

When Fike's not mail arting or reading scifi or shattering the silence whilst making paper targets holey he wonders about strange and mostly useless things.

Sugar free popsicles from Wal Mart come in boxes of 20 with flavors Orange [O], Grape [P] and Cherry [R]. Each is contained in a plastic wrap which has a flap seal down the side and then two of these individual packages are bonded together with flaps on the same side making 10, 2-paks per vended package. If one holds a two-pack so that the stick handles are up and the sealed sides are facing him and observes which of the three flavors are in each individual pak, there would be 9 possible combinations [3x3 allowing each position to be filled by any of the three colors] HOWEVER, 3 of these possibilities are not present because none of the 2-paks [at least observed so far] have two of the same color. So it's 3x2 choices, 6 total. These are:


I wondered if there was a statistically significant nonrandom distribution of all the 6 possible combinations. Non-randomness might be determined in colors of first position, 2nd position & 2-pak combinations.

So, here is a record of observed [and eaten] combinations:
