Louis Vigo is on page 18 of 612 of Biblical Theology: The God of the Christian Scriptures
If we make our questions and assumptions the criteria for deciding whether the Scriptures are relevant or correct, we have absolutized ourselves, and we can never escape the limitations of our questions and assumptions

Louis Vigo is on page 14 of 232 of Noise/Music: A History
Russolo is the complete antithesis of Kant, in that the former praises imitation (The Art of Noises, 44). In harnessing noise, the realm of music would be made infinite, and 'for him who understands it, noise represents instead an inexhaustible source of sensations'

Noise/Music: A History

Louis Vigo
Louis Vigo is on page 9 of 232 of Noise/Music: A History
"With noise is born disorder and it's opposite: the world. With music is born power and it's opposite: subversion. In noise can be read the codes of life, in the relations of men, when it becomes sound, noise is the source of purpose and power, of the dream-music. It is at the heart of the progressive rationalization of aesthetics, and it is a refuge for residual irrationality."

As western history rolls on, a series of avant-garde musics and associated behaviors accretes into a core of a developing society that combines progress with oppression.

Noise does not exist independently, as it exist only in relation to what it is not. In turn, it helps structure and define it's opposite (the world of meaning, law, regulation, goodness, beauty, and so on)

I used to tell interviewers that I wrote every day except for Christmas, the 4th of July, and my birthday. That was a lie. I told them that because if you agree to an interview you have to say something, and it plays better if it's something at least half-clever.

2 rules. Read a lot, write a lot... every chance you get. If there is no joy in these it's not for you

I was 30 years old before I had an actual thought. Everything I had before was only chatter, the reflexive regurgitation of whatever I was taught and told.

1) Stay Primitive - conception occurs on a primal level. 2) Swing for the seats, homerun. Start playing with power. We can always dial it back later. If we don't swing for the seats from the start, well never be able to drive a fast ball into the upper deck.

Stay Stupid - any smart person who understands the impossibly arduous task set before you would pull the plug early on. "A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, not does the genuis or madman. Its only you and I with our big brains and tiny hearts who doubt and overthink and hesitate"

Louis Vigo is on page 60 of 360 of Mesopotamia: The Invention of the City
Uruk, one of the first cites in conjunction with Eridu. Very innovative even by todays standards. Apparently an egalitarian social order, invention of bureaucracy,complete with a strict police state, and an obsession with 'free love', homosexuality, transsexualism, sacred prostitution which severely affected the family structure as there were very few husbands. Sounds like were still stuck in the same rut we began

Louis Vigo is on page 43 of 288 of Scorched Earth: Restoring the Country after Obama
Explains how the Clintons sold us out to the Chinese in the 90's, which explains their sudden rise to power (33). Liberal authoritarianism shouts down opposition; and the use of reeducation media and school systems (37). History shows the military has turned on their own time and again (39). Obamas plan to arm Iran against the people/Congress's will (41).

Privileged Moments (Ch2) - Dr Erickson would gain focused attention by lowering his voice at times when it was hard to hears causing the person to lean forward and listen extra hard. They found that this increased attention and interest in the conversation.

Privileged Moments (Ch2) - Consumer product research found people were more open to new things and ideas when complimenting them by, "Do you consider yourself to be somebody who is adventurous and like to try new things?" Almost all said Yes

Privileged Moments (Ch2) - Cults will often prompt by questions reviewing a persons dissatisfaction, "Well, if you're unhappy, you'd want to change that, right?" Then offer a solution

Louis Vigo is on page 34 of 195 of Death Before the Fall: Biblical Literalism and the Problem of Animal Suffering
"The notion that all mortality and all predation in nature is the result of a divine curse is itself an interpolation that has been imposed by pious readers in the great silences of the text. The creation narratives in Genesis are filled with lacunae and unanswerable riddles that should prevent careful readers from making very dogmatic statements of any kind"

Louis Vigo is on page 26 of 402 of The Mind of the Spirit: Paul's Approach to Transformed Thinking
In the beginning humans were formed in God's image, male and female. Humans degraded the divine to the image of themselves and even lower animals (Rom 1:23, 25). In so doing, they distorted God's true image in their own creation as male and female (Rom 1:24, Gen 1:27; 5:1-2)
