Everyone says he is crazy. The scarier thing is that he is stupid. You do not know anyone as stupid. You just don’t. [Fran Lebowitz]

    It’s sad that anyone has to learn a lesson in such a hard way.

    Sadder still… the innocents he infected before going symptomatic… or after, since so many deny the disease up to their last breath.

    There are two possibilities here.

    1. You may be joking, in which case it isn’t funny.

    2. You may believe that, in which it’s worse than not funny. It’s sad.

    But… ask a few random individuals to describe indigo, or to point to an indigo colored item in the room… or to name any common indigo colored object… and the drastic inconclusiveness about what it is… or whether it exists… will become obvious.

    For years, the only reference point I had was the indigo snake. But almost nobody looking at one would never come up with the word indigo to describe its color.

    And never mind the people who describe pumpkins as yellow.

    Oliver Sacks on inducing the perception of a color that may or may not exist:

    “I had been reading about the color indigo, how it had been introduced into the spectrum by [Isaac] Newton rather late, and it seemed no two people quite agreed as to what indigo was, and I thought I would like to have an experience of indigo. And I built up a sort of pharmacological launchpad with amphetamines and LSD, and a little cannabis on top of that, and when I was really stoned I said, ‘I want to see indigo now.’ And as if thrown by a paintbrush, a huge pear-shaped blob of the purest indigo appeared on the wall.

    “Again it had this luminous, numinous quality; I leaped toward it in a sort of ecstasy. I thought, ‘This is the color of heaven.’ … I thought maybe this is not a color which actually exists on the Earth, or maybe it used to exist or no longer exists. All this went through my mind in 4 or 5 seconds, and then the blob disappeared, giving me a strong sense of loss and heartbrokenness, and I was haunted a little bit when I came down, wondering whether indigo did exist in the real world.

    “I would turn over little stones. I once went to a museum to look at azurite, a copper mineral which is maybe the nearest [to] indigo, but that was disappointing. I did in fact have that experience again, but when I had it the second time, it was not with a drug, it was with music — and I think music can take one to the heights in a way comparable with drugs.”

    He later said he had an experience of seeing and understanding the color indigo… while scuba diving under the influence of LSD. [Or maybe snorkeling on psilocybin. I forget.]

    Yes, even when Wallace suggests including him, Spud will ask question like “Is he wearing clothes?” that has the power to shut down the whole question of “Can Sterling come along too?”

    So it makes sense that being included at all, even as “bait” probably appeals to Sterling. I’m rooting for the kid to “improve” but not so much that his funny eccentricities all disappear.
