Legacy Blog 22: The End of One Era, The Beginning of a New

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Sre dear readers,

I want to announce that this blog will no longer be used to post my ideas on physics, metaphysics, communication, or otherwise. I will likely still use it, but the time has come for me to shift my ideas to a new website. The new interface makes posting new ideas very simple. Much of the reason I didn’t update the MySpace Blog very much was because I had so many troubles with formatting my blog to be exactly how I wanted it. It may be an inconvenience for some of you loyal readers, who get updates through MySpace every time I post a new blog, and you can always subscribe to the new RSS feed on the new blog. I would still love your patronage, and I hope you’ll follow me to the new blog site. You can follow all of my recent posts by visiting the slighly easier-to-remember URL https://arthurhovinc.wordpress.com. (ahovinc is my AIM screen name.)

I’ve loved every single comment I’ve received from you, my readers, but I’ve noticed the demographics of the Web have changed. Many people who frequently used MySpace in the past use websites like Facebook and Reddit now for communication, and I feel that the move to WordPress makes my ideas accessible to a wider audience.

I will keep all of the old blogs I’ve written on the MySpace blog. I’m not sure yet what I’ll use the MySpace blog for now, but as soon as you see a post after this one, I’ve found the new purpose for it.

I’m looking forward to the future, and I hope to see you there.

Thanks for all the Kudos.

Legacy Blog 21: Terrible News

Saturday, November 01, 2008


You may have wondered what ever became of Dr. Poo. I understood that he would return in September to begin his online lectures through my MySpace Blog. He told me September 4, “Don’t worry, Old Boy! I’ll return. Tell my pupils to stay open to the idea of my return! Ho ho ho!”

I’m writing to let you all know that on September 14, I received a letter from the Secretariat for Safety and Security of South Africa that read,

Dear Trusted Friend of Dr. Poo,

It is with much regret that we inform you of the passing of Dr. Jingles Montgomery Poo. At midnight of September 13, a large rhinoceros escaped from the zoo and gobbled him up. The Government of South Africa will send you 30 gallons of ice cream as our condolences.

-The Secretariat for Safety and Security

Folks, I know I’ve kept the news from you for a while. It’s been hard for me to even cope with the details of all of it myself. In fact, all summer I was waiting for his return, and after I heard the promise that he would be back, I find out about his death two weeks later. I was devastated. I really looked forward to all the things he could bring to my Blog. He was a dear friend.

It is with this terrible news that I also wish to inform you of the revival of my Blog. In the honor of Dr. Poo, my blog will tie to his ideas of theoretical phyics my ideas about the notion of selves and consciousness. I can’t promise any regular entries–I’ve got the full-time commitment of collegiate study on my shoulders. But I will say that each entry will dive into another blending of ideas that may ignite in the reader’s mind the passion for Reality that I feel.

Keep checking back, folks. I will not let Dr. Poo’s legacy die.

Legacy Blog 18: A New Lecture

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

Halloo, Halloo! I’m Dr. Poo! And I’m here to tell you that school has begun! What school, say you? Why, Dr. Poo’s Seminar of the Disection of Roger Penrose’s The Road to Reality: A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe and other readings! Not to worry! A more comprehensive look at each subject will only improve your understanding. We will begin soon with an entry on basic but fascinating properties of mathematics. Our text for this course will be The Road to Reality, and I may assign other readings, but if I can find at least samples of the books through Google Book Search, I most certainly will post the links. At the time, there is no book scan for the textbook of this course. Provided I don’t get in trouble, I will provide you with all the graphics and equations you need to see. I look forward to seeing you in class! (Remember that Dr. Poo likes apples: they are good for his colon.)
