- IN LOVING MEMORY OF COYOTE 76 -
Our dear friend, mentor and Brother, Coyote 76, was killed on New Year's Day in a cycling accident. His influence on T.O.P.Y. runs deep. He will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
I think one of the most frightening problems we face is the problem of making sure we have sufficient information. We generally can tell if information is necessary. For instance, if following the political campaign of some candidate, we know that certain elements of personal life have no relevance to the political office they want, and some elements do. The point is, how can we know when we have all of the correct information to base a judgement? The problem becomes more convoluted when we are using our actual own thought processes to make judgement on information. This is one of the reasons that after four or fives years of knowing of the existence of TOPY I decided to becoum involved. When there is someone else (and hopefully many) asking the same questions, there are other minds and thoughts to "bounce ideas" off ov. The key for this work is that TOPY should not become some unified mind-meld for people to incorporate some standard chant. It must be both a loose whole and a bunch of interconnected individuals. I think that if it ceases to be this, the real Kali and Coyotes may break off, but they will still be in contact with themselves and other externals like them. The common meeting ground will exist. Part of the motivation for my finally becouming involved with TOPY (along with other personal revelations) is the fact that when I moved to Kalifornia two years ago, I did not find any sort of group of individuals who THOUGHT, at least like I had back east. This is not to imply any difference between the east and west; what I'm saying is that I had associated with a group of highly intelligent, analytical people, and suddenly left them. I did not go running to TOPY as a surrogate friendship, or a chance to recreate some past. In this sense, it is a way to exchange extremely pertinent ideas with analytical minds (and sympathetic ears).
