A Kind of Survey

If you are walking on a sidewalk, you need to know where the holes are. Holes could be a change of level, like one section of cement shifting a bit. It could be a crack where a truck had an intimate off road adventure. You need to know where the holes are, but you do not walk looking down, that way, you would see nothing. Jan Cox spoke about how people do not look up, as an aspect of mechanical behavior. You must look around, at least internally, as much as possible. That's your best chance to predict, the unpredictable -- sinkhole. Knowing where the holes are is one major distinction between the natural sciences and the mystical. The former do not even see the need to know, where the holes are.

What the books said---

quoting an AP story By MIKE SCHNEIDER, about a January 29, 2012 traffic incident on I-75, south of Gainesville, Florida: 

 A long line of cars and trucks collided one after another early Sunday on a dark Florida highway so shrouded in haze and smoke that drivers were instantly blinded. At least 10 people were killed.....

Steven R. Camps of Gainesville said he and some friends were driving home several hours before dawn when they were drawn into the pileup.

"You could hear cars hitting each other. People were crying. People were screaming. It was crazy," he said. "If I could give you an idea of what it looked like, I would say it looked like the end of the world.".... Some cars were crushed beneath the heavier trucks.

Reporters who were allowed to view the site saw bodies still inside a burned-out Grand Prix. One tractor-trailer was burned down to its skeleton, 

charred pages of books and magazines in its cargo area. 

And the tires of every vehicle had burned away, leaving only steel belts....

It was not clear when the highway would fully reopen because part of the road melted, police said.....

End quote. 

How could the Mayan calendar be wrong---the world ends every minute. It's an easy prediction.
