AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The story of an astronaut who launched himself into a black hole. The recovered fragments of his mind have been organized alphabetically into a witty, whimsical, surprisingly touching and laugh-out-loud funny dictionary of a floating mind.' (Publisher's blurb)

Notes

  • Epigraph: If an astronaut falls into a black hole he will be returned to the rest of the universe in the form of radiation. Thus, in a sense, the astronaut will be recycled. However, it would be a poor sort of immortality because any personal concept of time would come to an end...All that would survive would be his mas or energy.- Stephen Hawking, Anglia Telvision.
  • Dedication: This book is dedicated to the one-step plan: "Ishvara-pranidhanad-va" (from Patanjali's Yoga-Sutra 1:23).
  • Novel in dictionary form.
  • Contents indexed selectively.
