DREAMS OF A BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

Sales of my three e-books [Understanding Marx, Understanding Rawls, and The Poverty of Liberalism] are booming.  At latest report, a total of fourteen had been downloaded at $9.99 a pop [I have donated my royalties to the organization that is posting the books on Amazon.]  I am waiting for a call from Dancing With the Stars. 

Kant's Theory of Mental Activity, always a hot item, will be available soon, followed by Moneybags Must be So Lucky.  The thing about e-books, I think, is that they are immortal.  It is probably more trouble for Amazon to remove a title simply because it has not sold in a decade than it is to leave it there to languish.  Now if only someone could crack the problem of digitizing self-consciousness, I could be truly immortal.

Maybe it's a matter of patience:

Maybe you can get a movie deal for the Kant book--"The Thing In-Itself: In 3-D!" I'd cast Daniel Day-Lewis as the Transcendental Unity of Apperception.

Angelina Jolie could be the sensuous manifold -- something that any rational agent would want to run through and hold together in one concept.

I've never seen that many great one-liners in a row over here. Magpie is right, too -- they're working on that. It will be called an upload (the AI people stopped calling it a brain dump for PR reasons).

Ah, but will I remember that I hate pistacchio ice cream after the upload?
