Hello again iiwiiers
Busy tomorrow, don't know what you've got if anything, the usual. I was very tired earlier due to some stuff but I'm fine now so I've no excuse.
Hey, look at this tunnel complex for sale in the middle of London! I think that it's incredibly cheap, for what it is. Unless you're not allowed to actually go down there without permission you will never get, or something. Which doesn't seem to be the case. Sure, they say it's noisy, but surely you could do something about that? I'd love to live there. If I could get it kitted out. Ideally, though, it would be better if I could have some fiendish way of beaming daylight into there. And I wouldn't mind some countryside either. So some sort of technological or cosmological shenanigans would be in order, some sort of magic door, or failing that some sort of thing that would beam me to the garden of eden or something then back when I wanted. Not necessarily the garden of eden, I don't really know what that's like as a garden. They say it had no badness in it, apart from the pusher snake, but I don't need to get into an argument about that, or not, because it's not relevant here - I'm just talking about its qualities as a garden, which are largely unknown. Anyway, I'd want it to be huge wild country, but I'd want it to be mine. Not somewhere where I could get into trouble for eating an apple.
It's a bit unfortunate - we try to promote healthy eating to our kids but then the bible starts with how bad eating apples is. Kids won't get the subtleties, the bit where god goes "go ahead, you might as well eat all the apples you want now, the damage is done" until they're a bit older. And even then they might have unpleasant feelings of guilt when doing so. They might end up trying to get rid of all the snakes in a rage or something. Perhaps it would be better if the apple was replaced with some fast food or something. But it would lose some of its atmosphere if he was saying "you can eat whatever you want from here, but keep away from that McDonalds". Perhaps instead of the snake it could be Ronald McDonald tempting them. But it wouldn't be the same. It would be like a silly retelling rather than the real thing. I suppose it has to stay like it is. And this way the churches don't get sued by McDonalds. Or threatened with menaces to change it to KFC.
Anyway, what I'd actually want is some different gardens in different places and times. But that's a pain to manage without messing things up, owning property in the past and stuff, without ending up inventing the strimmer fifty years too early and changing history or something. Sure, you could just furtively go about enjoying bits of countryside in different places and times. But I couldn't really relax unless I owned them.
Perhaps my best bet would be to stay down the tunnel in the dark until I went mad and thought I was wherever I wanted to be. But it probably wouldn't be realistic enough, and what if I went the wrong sort of mad, and thought I was in a garden I didn't own that was a bit boring constantly getting a lecture for eating a McApple? I guess I'll just have to stay where I am, in my penthouse suite on the top floor (floor ten million) of It Is What It Is Towers until I've worked out how to get what I want without all the snags. Any ideas, as usual, are welcome.
that's all from me for now
see you around
