    Anyway I thought that we were all Lodewijck, or he is all of us, or something?

    He's certainly not all of me because some of me is here.

    That's because Your (and Our?) evil ego prevents the bit of Us there rejoining the rest of You here (for some reason-that's the bit of Lodewijk's philosophy that I find hardest to understand).

    "Stranger in a strange Land". Great writer. Good story. Went on too long. Ended up with that insufferable windbag Jubal Harshaw explaining the pop philosophy version of the Martian religion "You are God". All of you.

    Yes, but you didn't write it Martian and in the novel only the annoying Harshaw could really Grok in English.

    Good point. I'll have to brush up on my Martian. I haven't read the book in ...ummm...forty-six years.

    Burroughs was the Martian master, men being born from eggs and ones with detachable heads.

    Essex eggs must be very strange! Detachable heads indeed.

    They are, however, famous scrubbers.

    You are a cad and a bounder sir!

    A "cad" is one who does harm to a woman's honor or sense of self-worth as, for example, by taking her for a garden walk when he has no intention of marrying her.
    A "bounder" is a presumptious upstart, seemingly ignorant of, but perhaps merely indifferent to, fundamental norms of propriety.


    Guilty m'lud, on both counts.

    Goers they may be but scrubbers never.

    I have some experience in the area, and I assure you that both descriptions can be apt.

    My lawyers will require a full genome analysis from you before I can comment. Please send puncture biopsy of heart or liver, whichever is functional.

    However, on the basis of all I know, believe and hope - forget it.
