A Book Meme

We’ve been memed!

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open it to page 56.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  5. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

Thought it may be interesting to see what we’re reading at the moment.  If you don’t want to post on your own blog just post in the comment section below.  Here’s what I got:

“Consciousness is a process in the Brain” in my view is neither self-contradictory nor self-evident; it is a reasonable scientific hypothesis, in the way that the statement “Lightning is a motion of electric charges” is a reasonable scientific hypothesis.

    That’s a short sentence Nath, hard to know what came before it. (I posted a reply here as I couldn’t on your site).

    “He described the economy as ‘incredibly cost competitive’ and said the Government expected inflation to fall next year as one-off costs of the GST were washed out of the system.”
