The Soul Cares

RECEIVED Mon., Feb. 14, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I've praised Michael Ventura many times in the past for being a good, caring, rational human being. Then, out of the blue, in some kind of "carnival" ecstatic state, he tells us that the soul doesn't care who or what it nourishes or destroys [“Letters at 3AM,” Feb. 4]. Great. That puts him about on the same intellectual level as George Bush and his horde of Nixon cronies. Perhaps he should try looking into the latest discoveries of modern physics, such as Bose-Einstein Condensates and the collective wave functions of bosons. He might find that the soul, as part and parcel of the universe and symbol of the gods and demons of our ancient past, cares very much about what it creates and destroys. I would love to talk to him about my own Tiny Bang Theory. Me thinks he has spent too much time with the half-baked satanic techies in this town who try to pass themselves off as scientists and engineers. We hope he recovers from his hangover.
Peace out,
Todd Alan Smith
