Thinking about thinking. What is thought? Is it simply electrical impulses running through synapses from one brain cell to another? Is it an spritual energy we can not yet understand? What makes it coherent. Why are my thought patterns different than other people's. Why do I detest the flavors of mint, and alcohol while other people love them? Why do I love liverwurst while other people hate it? What makes me tick? What makes you tick? So I have the innate, but dormant ability to manipulate and control universal energies in ways so as to create worlds, or create and understand life, or move through time? Are these the abilities that seperate mortals from Diety?

If matter is a form of energy, can matter be transformed into something like a coherent and intellegent plazma? Why did my split yellow pea soup come out so very good tonight?

I believe that the physical body is an organic (carbon based) machine that allows the spirit to interface with the physical world.

And finally, what is that life force that brings animation to a collection of elements, to make my beautiful and precious granddaughters?

Thinking about my dog Annie who is at the animal hospital with pancreatis. I hope to visit her tonight. Vet did say she will feel better in a few days, with antibiotics. So that means Annie has to stay there a few days. At least hubby and I can go visit her in the evenings.

i have to go do the prep and make dough for pizza and sausage bread but i am putting if off cause my fingers hurt. i think i will do dough in kitchen aid and the garlic with my pampered chef slap chopper. but i still need to chop the herbs by hand (i think any other way but by hand bruises the herbs and makes a watery mess) and grate cheese.

i can put it off for a bit cuz hub is off tonight.
