      Louise,

      Our collective autobiographies here are almost as interesting as most literature.
      Existentialism must evolve in our surveillance society. Wishing you fortitude and a necessary inauthenticity...

      Mary

Your thought is sufficiently robust as it stands, and goodness knows there is plenty else to read. I am intending to leave the list now, because my deterioration has been such that I cannot really call myself an existentialist. A gradual attempt once more to build up an honest life seems not impossible, and the reward of success would I think be the achievement of a hitherto unknown coherence. To Bill, I must confess that I do not understand the Noosphere, and my inadequacies as a Nooist owe something, though not all, to this ignorance. To Jim, the review of my tussles with Wil, back in January of this year, about humanism, has revived memories of the latter's persistent attempts to rescue me from my predicament, attempts that were doomed, in the event, owing to the depth of my incomprehension. Sadly, I became besotted with Wil's intellect and whatever persona it is that the internet may transmit, which is much to my shame. I think it best to admit as much and live with the wreckage. Humanism looks like a word to me, a skeleton. I cannot make any sense of it. As I say, I am really not fit to be here. Since none of you believes me, I am sure, about the media surveillance, it is just not possible to envisage further participation. If I am writing twaddle, I cannot even tell. I am not convinced that even my best efforts enable me to tell an authentic truth. Having made my goodbyes before, I can only say nothing essentially has changed about my feeling. Existlist has been a great adventure with you people, and long may it flourish. Louise
