Ok, I got the web site back up and running. Here's a link: http://yesoidos.sf.net
Some parts of the web site have been rewritten, and there is a system in place for organizing new content as I add it in. It makes sure the left navigation bar has links to all parts of the site, and makes it easier to do style changes to the whole web site if I want.
I'm planning on using the web site for writing out the ideas for the novel, short of releasing spoilers. The spoilers I'm keeping on my hard drive. Maybe I'll release these later if demand calls for it.
A while ago, I contacted someone about doing art for the novel, but our conversation was short. He basically wanted more detail about what the characters looked like. I quickly put together a description sheet about the character graphics I wanted, but I'm not sure whether it was too much detail or too little, or even both. I supposed that I needed some more work on my novel before I asked again for character art.
Today, I did some practice on my music composition skills, and learned some Chassidus.
About the mystical process of creation from nothing. About how and why hiding and concealment are necessary to transmit an idea to someone else. How that parallels Creation. And also, that a person can meditate on the Infinite Light to such an extent that he reaches into the Essence of G-dliness -- a level even higher than... well, it's a secret. I think I'll actually try to put this into the novel.
Not that I'm forbidden from revealing it. It's called a secret, because there are some things that cannot be transmitted. Unless it is hidden first. This idea of why hiding is necessary... I think I can explain later here in this forum, or on the web site (see above link). It's really worthy of a whole article.
Ok. I'm going back to work. Later, and zeit gezunt!
