The language in my head

Felix points out how bizarre the hypothetical language was that I used in my previous post. Very true! It combines Javascript object-literal notation, ML expression syntax, semantic brackets to represent compilation, Scheme's hygienic expansion, Java (et al) method invocation, and hey, let's give credit to the new guy, Fortress-style mathematical notation for set-union.

Well, I know what I like!

Re: Timshel..."marveling at the beauty of their proud clean brains." Steinbeck...I imagine Dave Herman's could be in this catagory, also?

Thanks for posting the East of Eden passage regarding timshel. I just finished the novel this morning, it ended with this one word, I visited the web for it. Best wishes,
