The 18th Track

On Tuesday, in addition to the book of quotes, Richard also presented me with his control copy of a demo cd he had recently sent to a music magazine in the US. (He produces music in a studio in his house: electronic tracks, remixes and such.) He told me what was on each track and I looked at the cd and registered that there were 17 tracks.

But I knew straight away that there should have been 18 tracks and that it was a mistake that the 18th track had been left off.

I asked Richard about the missing track and his eyes got very wide.

“How did you know that?” he asked.

I had been spot on. Richard had had another track all set to go on the cd, but had finished everything before he realised that he had left it off.

I just know things sometimes. It does not help me with the horses, however. On Sunday I bet on 8 races and did not win a single one.

My research has shown me that there is a significant connection between Carl Jung’s concepts of the unconscious mind and synchronicity on the one hand, and extra-sensory perception (telepathy and clairvoyance) on the other. But it gets really complicated and I’m not sure how much further I will get in my sporadic research because I have a very limited attention span.

What about the smack?

Max said...

I don't actually indulge.

My dictionary says that the origin of "smack" as slang for heroin may be from Yiddish: shmek - meaning sniff, whiff, pinch of snuff.
