"I'm a skeptic, agnostic and existentialist; I perceive reality as a kind of consensual hallucination that forces us to define our sense of identity without recourse to faith or superstition."
A true bright star in a field of darkness has gone out. Tonnies death saddens me greatly; I'd been following his up-and-coming career through his articles and interviews, always meaning to pick up one of his books, but always thinking that there'd be time for that. He'd have a long career. He was a new breed of net-savvy futurism, forteana and forward thinking.
I hope he finds the answers to that greatest mystery of all.
