I started this blog asking the question, ‘Is the hokey pokey really what it is all about?’

The one thing I have discovered in my seventy-plus years is, as expressed in the Life of Brian, the meaning of life is - there is no meaning of life.

Many physicists have defined the human race as an accidental anomaly occurring on a small planet rotating around an unimpressive star in a galaxy of billions of stars, in a universe of billions of galaxies.

And then there is my 4 a.m. thinking from a physics background:

Our solar system looks amazingly similar to our conception of an atom; in which case we would be occupying an electron that we call earth rotating around a nucleus we call the sun.


Now our atom (solar system) is one of billions of atoms rotating a nucleus (black hole) forming a molecule we call the galaxy. 

That molecule is one of billions of molecules that make up a pustule on the ass of a half drunk female in leathers sitting on a bar stool in a biker bar in another dimension, comparing her tats with the bartender.

We, the human race of Earth, might call her God.

Now she in turn is sitting on an electron making up an atom that is part of a molecule …

And it’s turtles all the way down. 


These thoughts keep me awake early in the morning. 

the Ol'Buzzard


  1. When I was forced as a young man to grapple with the concept of atoms, molecules, etc., I too came up with the notion that we may just be part of the molecular makeup of a giant tree frog or in your scenario, a biker babe with too many tats to count.

    I remember running the idea by my father (the smartest man I knew and would ever know) and he nodded and said, "Anything's possible. There is so much more that we don't know than we do know."

  2. Life of Brian's crucifixion scene is one of the funniest moments ever filmed, in my opinion! I pee my pants laughing every time I seen it.

  3. The Goddess say's you have it all wrong..she made the universe..all of them...but was bored so she made relieve her boredom..we are just here to amuse her..she doesn't really give a fuck what we do or pray long as we're good for a few laughs..we can stay...when we're not funny any more? zap...she'll start all over..but this time? we'll be smarter.

  4. I have always had my suspicions that we are just part of a pimple on the big hairy ass of the Universe but thought I was the only one that frigging insane! Thanks for making me feel better!

  5. Wow! I feel so small and more insignificant than I did when I got up this morning.

  6. Have you ever read about Discworld. Discworld, a flat disc balanced on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the back of a giant turtle.

    There is a series of books by Terry Pratchett.

    Your turtles all the way down always reminds me of these books.

    As for the atom being like our solar system, I've seen lately that there may be another planet circling the sun at almost 90 degrees to the other planets.

  7. There is a germ on the eye on the flea on the hair on the wart on the butt on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
