Cyberpunk, Spirituality and Technology - The Voidspace Blogspot

The strange and deluded ramblings of a rather odd person. Hello Dude - It's Me

Please Fasten Your Seatbelts

And Loosen Your Clothing

Follow my exploration of living a spiritual life and finding the kingdom at Unpolished Musings.

These pages are all my own work. Unfortunately that may be a terrible admission. In these pages are various writings of mine, from the first part of my life story, to poems, to mad ramblings without excuse. Below the links to the articles is my blog. Not to be confused with the Techie Blog, this is random ramblings from life.

Rambling Rumination

Diving or Drowning Part I. The first part of my Autohagiography... up to the point where I first take ecstacy. The tale of how a polite, well mannered middle-class child became such a ruffian.....

Diving or Drowning Part II. The second part of my life story - the further fall....

Life in Romania. An article about living in Romania. This follows two visits in 2004 and 2005 to visit my wifes parents. Life is very different in Romania than it is here in Britain.

A Random Assortment. A short collection of my poetry. There's one or two gems buried in here.

HumanOS v1.3. Subtitled baby crocodiles, computers and the human personality. This is an article that compares the human mind to a computer operating system. It touches on artifical intelligence and the ages old Nature versus Nurture debate.

Christian Meditation. A short piece on Christian meditation - exploring living Spirituality with God.

Imagine Paradise. No its not about a large network of computers, its actually about Christian Community..... and why we bother.

The first is an article on the spiritual power of symbols and sacraments. The second one, is on what sort of truth we can expect to find in the bible - with a brief section providing one possible reconciliation between modern science and Genesis. They should both be understandable by 'beginners' to the subjects.

Quick 'n' Dirty HTML. Need to get a webpage up quick and never done any HTML before ? This article will get you up to speed with the basics, using a TABLE for layout. Not for those who want nice, standards compliant, XHTML and CSS...

Voidspace Story. My cyberpunk short story. Lovely imagery but very short *sigh*. Come and play in the Void !

Beginners Guide to Atlantis. My beginners guide for new players of Atlantis - the computer 'Play-by-eMail' game. Very useful if you`ve just started to play.


It's for You

emoticon:cross We're holding another open day at the Northampton Jesus Centre.

It's on Saturday December the Third, 10.00AM until 4.00PM, and you're all welcome. Smile

The theme is It's for You, because we're focussing on letting the local community know about the wide range of activities we run - and that they're open to everyone. We still think there is a perception that the Jesus Centre is only for the Jesus Army. That aint so.

If you're in Northampton town centre (UK, not Massachusetts) that Saturday, come and have a look.

We'll have our dance team and live music, various taster sessions by our groups, hopefully a special offer running in the Circle Cafe - and lots of friendly people to talk to. Smile

Best of the Blog

emoticon:noise I've just added a new page - Best of the Blog.

It contains links to the better (or longer) posts that I've made on this blog. As you might imagine, it's quite short ! Wink

Dining in a Temple

emoticon:knot Last night I ate dinner in a Sikh temple, cooked by a Sikh priest. It's not every day I get to say that. Smile

My wife met Amrik (the priest) by teaching English at the Jesus Centre. This in itself is slightly ironic, her being Romanian - but she speaks better English than most of the natives.

Amrik is a short beaming fellow, with an impressive grey beard, broken English, and heartwarming hospitality. There are two Sikh congregations in Northampton, and he is the priest of one of them. He lives with his son in what is effectively a bedsit atatched to the temple. Their wives and children are both living in India. We watched some of the DVD of the son's wedding (whose name I won't even attempt to spell).

Amrik has an impressive multi-levelled house in India, and he's given it up to live in a small room in Northampton.

He cooked us pizza - cooked the traditional Indian way Wink - along with a mildly spicy chickpea dahl (spelling ?). Very nice, not every day a priest cooks for us.

The Slow March Forwards (More Website Updates)

emoticon:html The website makeover continues. At this rate it will only be another couple of years before it is complete. Smile

To go along with the Cyberpunk Search Engine, I've updated the Cyberpunk Section to the new style.

Not all the subpages are done, but a lot in the Neil Gaiman and William Gibson pages are.

Once I've converted the pages to the new style I can look at updating some of the content. I think you'll agree that the new style is much better than the old - many thanks to Venturer for help with CSS and other design issues.
