The Dark Tower

Referencing Leonard Cohen’s song “A Crack in Everything”. He says “that’s how the light gets in.” Various books seem to have cracks in them. And I don’t necessarily think that the writers are on the Advaita bandwagon. I suspect that it’s kind of that “hero with a thousand faces” thing. The waves of the Ocean of Singularity move across the entire ocean, not just on a solitary beach.

I hate reading books that tell me what to think or how to be. But I do get a kick out of it when someone sneaks something in on me.

Stephen King’s Dark Tower series is seriously cracked.

Today, one of the characters got hit in the face with the knowledge that he is a character in another book. And it is tearing him up. “It’s not a story. It’s not a story, it’s my life!”

Ha!
