Oh what a day that was

Cranked out some good work on Stemwinder this afternoon. Then the_child and I went to timalyne's place for dinner with her, Paul and their two kids. The kids had a terrific playdate and the adults got to chat. First time we'd crossed paths in real life, and it was a lot of fun.

On the way home in the car, the_child started talking about choices. I think she's discovering both existentialism and the quantum butterfly. It was far too complicated a conversation for me to recap in detail here, but we discussed why some choices make a big difference and others don't, whether or not there is consciousness after death (she warned me, "be very careful" when I said I was pretty sure there wasn't), the difference between empirical truth and the truth of belief, and so forth. Weird but fun.
