I was reading this episode of Jeffrey Rowland's webcomic "Overcompensating" which led me down a dark, deep hole towards the wonderland of wikipedia. I read, in order of link-traversal, about: Machine Elves, Shiva, Yoga, Kundalini, the Zen master Hakuin, the Odic force (linked from Kundalini), the idea of Protoscience, in particular General Semantics, which I hear Martin Gardner thinks is crap, and I'm kind of curious why, because it seems GS has some fine cautionary (rather Wittgensteinian-sounding) things to say about getting confused by the use of language.
