I am trying to understand why doing nothing is considered by some to be better than doing something. That is, after all, the message spread by Eastern faith/philosophy. It’s not just the message, but the way it is passed on to the rest of us, who, it’s alluded, are not as enlightened as we should [...]
[I just paused to look out again...]
It’s a lovely day, actually. I [...]
Having just come back from a UK book tour, I can sort of relax till the next one in February. OK, it’s not really relaxing. After all, I continue answering a growing number of emails dealing with all aspects of nothing; and since I am not yet in the position to not answer (or [...]
The Nobel prize for Physics has just been awarded to Adam Riess and two other astrophysicists for proof that the universe is not only expanding, but that this is accelerating, i.e. the universe is expanding faster and faster as time goes on. The most likely reason: a mysterious cosmic force known as dark energy.
I wonder. I write blogs and send them to… where? Who reads them? The only way I know is if someone sends in a comment. Well, looking back over the eight blogs I have written so far, it doesn’t look as though they have made much impression – at least according to the number [...]
What makes us, us? What is it about a person that makes him/her uniquely that person? If he/she – let’s call her Joan – has plastic surgery and changes her face completely, is it still Joan? We would say that, yes, it is - in which case ”self” is not merely physical appearance. And if Joan [...]

In light of my interview today with Kory French on BreakThru Radio of NYC, Kory sent me the following email containing an interesting point:
Great conversation this morning. I am looking forward to the final cut. Interestingly, I read the following in an Arts Journal after we spoke and thought further on the subject: [...]
So it started. The talking. After writing about nothing, I have begun to talk about nothing. I suppose I’m doing a “book tour,” but it doesn’t feel like it. I am, after all, talking about nothing, aren’t I?
But a book there is, and before the talk I did a signing in the Brighton branch of Waterstones, [...]
It’s in my hand. The book. It’s almost surrealistic to actually hold the product itself after such a long wait. It didn’t just pop out of nothing, of course. Gradual it was, not at all like Excalibur, Arthur’s sword.
It really started about five months ago, when I first found “Nothing Matters” on Amazon [...]
