it's a lecture of his. although i do not agree entirely with him i do however agree that great minds can think alike at least to some extent. has this been posted before on this site? give me some input. put all skeptisism in the form of a joke or pun so i can disagree in a language i understand

Thanks for highlighting this.

Big admirer of Burroughs, but can't access loads of videos where I am.

Any chance of a summary and how it's influenced your thinking?

I would like a summary also.

I won't waste an hour and a half of my life watching a video just to see if I may/may not find it interesting.

Well the lecture begins quite slowly but soon gets interesting when Burroughs begins to get intothe gist of it.....
The first part...(and thats as far as i am ) deals with information derived from paranormal sources such as EVP....
The technique of recording factory fresh tapes and then playing them back to discern voices that have no way of being input thaT WE KNOW OF.....
The second instance s in cutting up written sheets of paper and reassembling them willy nilly to reveal entirely different and sometimes startling messages.....
I am finding it very dry but quite interesting.....

yeah i posted last night while in the middle of watching
one thing that caught my attention is how he spoke of automatic writing and it's relationship with the momentum one gets while writing very fast. my mind right now is moving faster than my ability to type right now grrr.
