An icy midwinter evening after a beautiful sunny Dunedin day - the very best that this season has to offer here in the South. Looking from the new house on the hill, across the narbour to the city. The large structure lit up like a Chinese lantern is the controverisal new stadium - an expensive luxury bankrupting the entire district - the brighter it shines the duller the surroundings seem. It's drawing all the money to itself and swallowing it in one glowing burp. I wonder if we'll be able to hear Elton John from over here when he plays the inaugural concert.
According to the famous mathematical thought experiment, Schroedinger's cat is neither dead nor alive. So it's a cool concept if you don't like being locked into binaries. Not so good if you don't like being locked into a lethal booby-trapped box. And from the cat's point of view, there is no ambiguity at all.
