I’m ba-a-ack!

It’s been a month of intermittent Internet connection and scattered files and attention directed elsewhere, but i’m back in Winnipeg on mom’s computer and raring to go.

For you closet anarchists, here’s a zinger of a Sufi quote, courtesy of the inscrutable east and the kitchen wall of the Backpackers on Dundas hostel, downtown Toronto:

Nothing is true,
everything is permissible.

Hasan bin Sabbah (creator of the “Garden of Earthly Delights,” if this source is to be believed)

According to the source, bin Sabbah was a schoolmate of poet Omar Khayyam (“a loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou”) in Persia, back around 1055. Here’s an interesting sentence from the story at the “source” link above:

The students had to ascend through nine degrees, until finally they were taught the Ultimate Truth: that the world is created through actions, and beliefs are powerless distractions used to enslave the masses.
