/me passes the smokey-thing from the other philosophical thread, allowing others in the dorm room to partake.

"I find this to be deeply nihilistic, duuuude."

Oh, not nihilistic at all.  This is minimalism carried to its ultimate peak -- concise and (I can say this with an almost straight face) to the point.

Ah, but what is more minimalist than nothing? Nothing matters, period. >>> . <<<  See what I did there?

No, no, no ... You are looking through the wrong end of the telescope. We are witnessing the beginning of a new universe, the heart of an intellectual Big Bang.  The precise, finely tuned dot is not "nothing"; it is everything, compressed into a microcosm at the instant of its birth.  To view it as a nihilistic statement is to accept a "glass half empty" defeatist view, contrary to what the author is trying to express.  Her hearty, plucky little dot is a statement of hope, of untapped potential, ready to spring on us if only we give it room to breathe....

I can symbols too! My favourite is this donut shaped C++ code that produces a donut:

             k;double sin()
         ,cos();main(){float A=
       0,B=0,i,j,z[1760];char b[
     1760];printf("\x1b[2J");for(;;
  ){memset(b,32,1760);memset(z,0,7040)
  ;for(j=0;6.28>j;j+=0.07)for(i=0;6.28
 >i;i+=0.02){float c=sin(i),d=cos(j),e=
 sin(A),f=sin(j),g=cos(A),h=d+2,D=1/(c*
 h*e+f*g+5),l=cos      (i),m=cos(B),n=s\
in(B),t=c*h*g-f*        e;int x=40+30*D*
(l*h*m-t*n),y=            12+15*D*(l*h*n
+t*m),o=x+80*y,          N=8*((f*e-c*d*g
 )*m-c*d*e-f*g-l        *d*n);if(22>y&&
 y>0&&x>0&&80>x&&D>z[o]){z[o]=D;;;b[o]=
 ".,-~:;=!*#$@"[N>0?N:0];}}/*#****!!-*/
  printf("\x1b[H");for(k=0;1761>k;k++)
   putchar(k%80?b[k]:10);A+=0.04;B+=
     0.02;}}/*****####*******!!=;:~
       ~::==!!!**********!!!==::-

I loved this movie. I need to watch it again. :) But I don't know what they were smoking.  No one I knew ever went into frenetic, bounce off the walls, head shaking dances from the funny cigarettes *we* had. It would have, at best, made  our heads hurt and spin. Ally Sheedy got it right at the end...
