If one presses the key g while using the software Stellarium, one could see the stars through the ground. One with eyes that could detect neutrinos would see only noise. Constraints make sense.

Butterflies taste with their feet. They sample leaves before laying eggs on them. Figs eat wasps. Early in U.S. history, the runner-up in the presidential election became the vice president.

There are so many dead websites. Addressing content on the internet is a problem. URLs are so brittle. The Wayback Machine is not sustainable. For the sake of preservation, at least search indices exist.

Spinoza’s god couldn’t be a person. If it is the nature of being a person to have a perspective, then what else is there to see if one is already everything?
