What? A second blog? You have trouble keeping up with the first one? What’s the deal?
And “Ether?” Really? Am you trying to go back to early anaesthetic? Put everyone to sleep?
The answer is simple. Oriented is supposed to be a specific writing project. This is for all the other stuff.
Ether has some other interesting connotations:
1. Its a volatile, very flammable substance. A stimulant.
2. It was once thought to be what we now call space, the piece beyond the terrestrial world
3. The 5th Element. The ancients believed it was the highest element after earth, air, fire and water.
4. The massless substance once theorized to be the medium of transmission of electromagnetic waves
What we are talking about is stuff that (hopefully) might spark some thought or passion, a transmission of light, something concerning things beyond ourselves.
So for all the following etherial or mundane words…
…at the very least (O God) let it be funny.
