Take a gander.. better yet, take the goose, too. Nerdotopia!

After reading Mr. Big by Woody Allen this morning (it's in his book Getting Even), I realized Rudolf Carnap was right. Metaphysics really belongs to literature. It is art, not sciencd. You could get creative with it. The only difference is that you could choose to live your life based on it. You could rearrange your personal reality based on the metaphysics you, or anybody else, just created. And a lot of people do. They say 'Im an Existentialist" the same way someone else might say "Im Catholic." It's the only art piece where you could do that. Try basing your reality on Munch's The Scream and see where it gets you.
