Master Minkowski's Wild Ducks (Zen And The Glass Block Universe) - The Nightshirt

How does one account for presentiment? For some it may be a biological process, others are born with it, but Eric Wargo's model suggests we're in a deterministic universe. Doctor Manhattan best described this model in Watchmen, "There is no future. There is no past. Do you see? Time is simultaneous, an intricately structured jewel that humans insist on viewing one edge at a time, when the whole design is visible in every facet" much like the titular glass block. What Eric doesn't leave out, like his naked blue analogue, is a human element woven with Buddhist philosophy that may have informed the scientific theory. For the nascent heptapods in our audience, Paul Smith has timely advice on What To Do If You Get A Premonition To A Disaster. His five-step plan is more about reducing signal-to-noise than avoiding unwanted attention, since the authorities hear from crackpots so often you might as well not bother them with your vision. Chuckle-worthy is Paul's earnest suggestion to record your visions on Facebook despite the platform's track record with government coöperation. (CS)
