I've been reading The DIM Hypothesis, Leonard Peikoff's new book. I'm enjoying it, but I feel unsure where he's going with it.

Well, in one sense I'm pretty sure where he's going with it, since the subtitle is: "Why the Lights of the West Are Going Out". But I'm not sure exactly how he's going to get there.

by the way
is an acronym.

But it works well with the "lights going out" theme, I have to say.

I was surprised today when the book took a turn into Western literary history since the 1700s. For a view from 30,000 feet, I thought it was a sensitive account.

I suppose my personal tendency is toward optimism.

I'd rather the lights stayed on.
I believe in dawn.
