Happenings and Jorge Luis Borges

Reading the first part of the assigned section in Background Noise for this week, I began thinking about a short story by Jorge Luis Borges in relation to what I was reading about Happenings. The story is "The Lottery in Babylon," and details a process in which a simple lottery becomes so complex and multifaceted that the lottery becomes life itself and life becomes the lottery. It's a fantastic story.

Also, Kelsey was talking about a Radiolab program last time, called "Musical Language."
