  • Wil... I havent read here in a while -- cerca the death of bill the covert ops dentist. I was weaning quite a bit before that. There was a time where I would read here more frequently than my email, and respond at great length. Looking, I do not think this format change is a positive one, and perhaps it is Yahoo sinking its own ship. They threatened to close this down years ago. I...

I think vacuum suggests less than nothing, which is why I suggested that I would think nothing is rest--without energy. Vacuum seems more like a black hole, which I believe is the opposite of something, anti-matter, to some extent. I don't see nothing like in my model. > I cannot see how anything...
