I dreamed of Richard Heinberg.
(Doesn't everyone? The guy is a genius.)
Yes, he's sexy, but it was not that kind of dream....
I sit in the audience at a talk. He says brilliant thing after brilliant thing.
I am following, only a step and a half behind him.
I ask a question. I almost understand.
He says, after the pause, "OH!"
He pauses again.
"Well--what you are wondering about is just XYZ, obviously...
...but your question made me UNDERSTAND
how to UNDERSTAND THE WORLD
AND SOLVE ITS PROBLEMS
IN THE PAST,
what it is I want
in this life
I am dreaming about.
