How do I know all the members of this site exist, or are not just one person?
How do you know the same?

A plate of predictable paranoia…

(kinda like angel hair pasta of the mind)


Are you there?

am I here?

are you who you say?

am I who I think?


just cause I see your picture, read your comments,

does that necessarily prove you exist?


exist to me that is, let alone yourself?

I could be living in a world bereft of all human life,

as could you all, that is to assume, you all exist,

beyond that of this site,

for if you don’t who the hell am I writing too?


where am I , where are you?

what am I, what are you, too?


am I weird, definitely, but are you weird too?

again, definitely, anyone who writes has got to be.

is there a camera inside this computer?

looking back at me, watching me, spying on me?

is this my life, do I have a life, maybe in reality,

I just need a wife, someone to make me feel,


I am me, you are you, this is life and this is real…

Ed, what's at my site is me. I'm not hiding anything. I tell the truth.

all we can really know is the matrix of the poetry being written ... as far as being weird, that's what makes us special ...

Am I Kate the writer with a heart, or is Kate the serial killer really the truth of who I am? hehehehehehe

You walked into this one :-)

Seriously I think we all wonder who we ware speaking to when on the internet. One guy I meet from the Internet story will make a perfect romance/horror story in the future for me to write about, but I have also met, in person, a few others that are now all part of my soul family. You just have to take a chance :-) In public of course :-)

Ed, by golly, you've hit on one of my favorite mind-bogglers.

What if - you have created all of this in your mind - and none of us exist - but at your whim. You are really unconcious, hooked up to tubes, imagining all of this in your head. Sort of a Matrix like existence.

A Twilight Zone thought that I badger my wife with all the time.
This is a good one!

Hey Ed, you already smokin' wacky tobakki this early in the morning--is that why the paranoia? I think you're right--most or all writers are weird. And you're not the only one who feels this way about cyberspace--I feel the same way. There's something about it that doesn't feel real.

DELUSIONS — Pragmatic Realism by Stan Law (aka Stanislaw Kapuscinski)

Dedicated to Richard Dawkins,in gratitude for many hours of enjoyable reading. While he and I don’t always see eye to eye, the doctor might find, here, additional arguments for his..
