Dear Glen, Sorry about the delay in answering your letter. I've been "snowed under" and I'm also trying to change to a different INTERNET service but things have somewhat settled down now. Thanks for the satellite info. I've got a bit tired of the flat earth. The only lingering dobut I have is that coriolis force. I think something is making the water turn more often clockwise than anti-clockwise. It may be just me. I can get it to go anti-clockwise if the water is spinning that way first... The next time I am on a flight crossing the equator I will check out what happens in the plane. If the coriolis force was still there when you were off the rotating earth it could be quite interesting! But it really doesn't matter... You said in one of your previous letters you thought there was "something out there" and we don't just get old and die then finish of story. What is your idea? What do you think happens? Do you believe in the soul (a non-material particle within the body whose symptom is consciousness). If you do, do you think the soul is eternal? What about reincarnation? -- Madhudvisa dasa | | S H E L T E R I N T E R N A T I O N A L |____________________________________________ Spirit and matter combine together to manifest this gigantic universe.
