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

 

 

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.

The Googlewhack Adventure

emoticon:dove I've just finished watching the Googlewhack Adventure by Dave Gorman.

It is very funny. It's not your usual standup comedy, and absolutely hilarious. Maybe slightly geeky, but hey. Smile

As a mild aside, creationism plays a minor walk-on part in the adventure, which is kind-of, sort-of what led to my last post... Just thought I'd mention it.

Science or God ?

emoticon:exclaim Science enriches my faith. Creation enriches my faith.

I can stand in a field, the breeze causing velvet ripples in the tall grass and the sun causing everything around me to shimmer with life. I can gaze at the stars, the unquenchable blackness that may be infinite or may just be beyond my comprehension.

I can see images of far off nebulae, distant clouds that condense stars in their fingertips. So vast that they as well be mythical for all that I can understand them.

I can read of a quantum world so odd and so elegant that no magic can rival it.

All this speaks to me of God, of a majesty so utterly beyond me.

In worship I can touch holiness. A purity that is beautiful, that holds no guile, no deceit, perfection. It is terrifying. It exposes who I really am. But it is still beautiful and it is in me, around me, in those I share this hope with.

Modern science claims to be in conflict with religion, or perhaps religion claims to be in conflict with science. But my religion tells me that the goal of my life is to learn not be selfish. That true fulfilment is to be found in a love that genuinely wants to serve others. This is the same holiness that I touch in worship, how beautiful. If only I could do more than aspire to it, to glimpse it.

How can this detract from humanity. How is this in conflict with anything genuine ?

But it is the opposite of religious dogma and law, an anathema to it. The bitter irony is that this is the very thing that Jesus stood against in his day. He opposed the teachers of the law, who oppressed the poor and put burdens on others that they would not carry themselves. He called them whitewashed tombs, snakes in the grass, the blind leading the blind.

So please never mistake ignorant, dumb religious law for Christianity.
