Do all living creatures have to face death? (tags)
How then are we to explain about the very existence of living creatures that have, since they first emerged 3.8 billion years ago, never come to the end of their life process? Therefore, the claim that all living creatures must experience death is one that still needs to be thoroughly proven

Eyes Wide Open at Arlington West (tags)
Eyes Wide Open, the American Friends Service Committee’s widely-acclaimed exhibition on the human cost of the Iraq War joined Arlington West last Sunday. Each and every Sunday since February 15th 2004, this memorial is set up on the sand just north of the pier at Santa Monica Beach. We've been putting up this memorial as a way to acknowledge the costs and consequences of the addiction to war as an instrument of international policy. Similar to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C., we've a weekly updated placard listing all the fallen American military personnel since the U.S. invaded and occupied Iraq to the present day. People read the names, ages, rank, hometown and circumstance of death, write their name on a piece of paper along with any thoughts or sentiments and attach this to any cross along with a flower. In addition, we've also a sign to acknowledge the fact that if we were to put up a cross for each Iraqi person killed the numbers of crosses would fill the entire beach. As we have no way of knowing the various faiths or philosophies of the many who have sacrificed their lives fighting for their illusions, the simplicity of a cross is used as a marker. Arlington West is a place to mourn, reflect, contemplate, grieve, and meditate, and to honor and acknowledge those who've lost their lives and to reflect upon the true cost of war.

A Life of Illusions (tags)
Would you believe it, should someone tell you that at this very moment you are experiencing a number of pasts simultaneously? No doubt your immediate response would be, "That's just absurd!" But doesn't it ever occur to you that the stars you see in the sky are actually in their past condition, not in their present condition? Does this not mean at present we too are experiencing "a number of pasts" of the stars?

COUNTRY JOE AND THE FISH! (tags)
These poems were actually songs of protest from the 60's psychedelic band out of Berkeley California, Country Joe and the Fish. The Fish produced some of the greatest protest music of that period, and their infamous "Feel Like I'm Fixin To Die" song epitomizes the dark humor, anger, and hope of the 60's antiwar movement. The lyrics offered here were of course written about America's war against Vietnam, but the words are timeless and easily apply to the U.S. occupation of Iraq. If you don't know this band... do yourself a favor and find a cd by them.
