quantum physics back in the 1920's, some famous
scientists, including Hugh Everett hypothesized something
called "The many
worlds theory", in which, every time a choice is
made, the universe itself splits, and each possibility
exists in reality in a separate, complete universe. In
that paradigm, the road not taken IS taken. Imagine your life in that
By Robert Frost
a discussion of the poem, go here or here.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

displayed at first the way I intended in Mozilla

Microsoft Internet Explorer. I don't normally
use MSIE, but am checking how my pages
display there since most of the
misguided world insists on using an

stuck in the past and using MSIE, my
condolences to you and my fond
hope is that you and the rest of the
world will get Firefox soon! I didn't

Sorry.... And while I'm
editorializing on the subject of Microsoft, if
you're an Office user, why not try a
product which is just as good and
more dependable such as Open Office?
I use it and love it. My
it also since it's FREE! Well, I'm not done
yet--for your e-mail, abandon
Outlook Express for
the far superior Thunderbird.
One last Bill Gates
bash: try Linux
instead of Windows. I think Knoppix
is a good choice for
a beginner, since you
can boot from their CD or DVD and never mess with
your computer's hard
drive at all. Try it, you'll like it!
Thunderbird, Open Office, and Linux are truly the

taught you :
