Darwin Day!  I guess that we're all the smart ones since we're still here after centuries of Darwin Days.

It must be a cosmic resonance.  I can just see them, they probably live in Washington state, Louisiana, and Utah.

This is one of the more cosmic shows yet on the new Tuesday lineup.

Trying a new audio setting on my receiver because the music from the surround speakers is much louder than the narration.

I tried the "DTS: Neural X" setting, built it seems to direct audio to different speaker based upon the sound, weirdly. Like, sometimes when people are talking if their voice goes into a different register, the sound comes out of different speakers. Very disorienting.

I thought I had the center channel speaker maxed, but it turns out it wasn't...so, I just turned that up and I can hear the narration clearly now.

It sounds like it is subtracting the signals to just give the side information, not the middle info.  They have that M/S setting on some sounds effects, so you can choose either L/R or M/S, It is probably how they get rid of the singer in karaoke songs.

It is like a monster black hole was sitting in the center of your speaker system.

They move the camera round those galaxies, like as if it was on a drone, but the drone is moving 100 million lightyears a second

I bet that if people really reincarnate that they go elsewhere.  There are so many galaxies, why would they have to go back to Earth?  Maybe they just pop up in some galaxy far, far, away, where they don't speak English.

The might reincarnate as a hyper-intelligent shade of the color blue.

I'm using a JBL soundbar, but it has a nice strong subwoofer.  No settings, just how strong the sub is.  I'd use the surround sound but that is in another room.

Does it come with a free black cat?  It looks like one of the books that the lady I used to rent a room from in Canada had. She called herself a witch, and had cats.  She said her cats would turn into the house guests that would visit at times.

It's really fascinating. And requires a lot of work. At worst, it improves my mind with different methods of thought.

I never figured out that kabbalistic tree-of-life thing, whatever it is called.  Is seems like khakras, but those I can get, with the chi centers, but this other thing seems completely different.

I'd be afraid that if I ever start smoking pot again that I would start up occulting.  I smashed all my music equipment and guitars once to keep from playing that kind of music anymore, a long time ago.  It had a lasting effect.
