The discovery

I was playing with the features of my iPod yesterday before hitting the sack by midnight. I was awoken at 0130 hrs when Santosh got up to go to the bathroom. That’s when I heard it – a feeble but unmistakable orchestral sound emanating from somewhere. There was no known source of such music in my house at this hour except…my iPod! I was right.

I must have mistakenly set the alarm on my iPod for midnight. Beethoven was playing one of his symphonies, oblivious to the lack of audience. I stopped the great man and went back to sleep.

Thanks to Santosh.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
