Nickolai,

I really like your theory, as I've always had my doubts about Darwin's evolution, but I'm certainly not a religious creationist either. I need to digest what you have written so far, and if I have any queries I will be back!

I didn't mention anything about baldness or DNA! That was Dregsofdilly.

Yes, Morpheus the original. Not the character in the Matrix film. Morpheus is the ancient Greek god of dreams and opium poppies. And of course poppies give us morphine, a wonderful pain killer and trigger of dreams and eventually death. He morphs in the dream world. I must read your assisted suicide...

"The left hand says the world is my body and I am its brain, the right hand says the world is a body and without it I am nothing; I am nothing"

Re: Thanks

Hello Mhoraine, As I'm still new here, I don't think we've met within a thread. Any way, here's wishing you a happy festive season too. However, I'm tempted to put the dog in solitary confinement and starve it over the holidays...cough. Er, forgive me. It's the season of goodwill and all that and I ...

Possibly everything that we know 'lives' at some level or another. So I think I understand where Nikolai is coming from. If we break down the material manifestations of life as we know it, we reach the atomic level. Break this down further and we reach the subatomic realms. If it were possible to br...

I'm listening to Massive Attack's Tear Drop as I write this. Love it! Here's another beautiful voice, Kate Rusby. She wrote this song My Young Man in remembrance of her grandfather who died of Black lung disease, pneumoconiosis, a once common malady of coal miners working in horrendous conditions. S...

I actually liked the previous links too! I have an eclectic taste in music. And now for something quite mad - Mediaeval metal rock, or whatever it's supposed to be!

I'm in two minds about posting this link as I know this music does not appeal to many. For me, it's the most beautiful piece of sacred music I've ever heard. Spem in alium by Thomas Tallis, a 16th century English composer. It begins softly, but stay with it because it develops into the most sublime ...

How interesting! Having just found this thread, I'm left wondering why so many of the poems are deadly serious and deathly. Indeed, death in its various aspects is a common theme. Talented people every one of you, but why that undercurrent of morbidity? Or is it that poets are melancholy by nature? ...

Yes, he's Welsh and a classically trained singer. He's fantastic live at a party. He was far too good for X factor which is why he didn't win, but Simon gave him a record contract in any case.

Generally that's true Mark. Except that I happen to know Rhydian personally, which makes a bit of a difference!

Eh? Prove it mate! By the way, if you are Simon Cowell, I've a bone to pick with you. Why on earth did you make the dinosaur song, 'The Impossible Dream' the lead track on Rhyd's cd? It should have been the song that was written specially for him, 'I'm coming Home Again'. Or even 'Not a Dry Eye in t...
