A recurrent memory.
Walking across the campus of the University of Western Australia with a professor of something or other. It was 1992 I think.
Continuing a conversation, I meekly asked: “And what do you feel about that?”
He snorted, and smirked. Brusquely said “Oh you don’t believe in that New Age stuff do you?”
And went on explaining his intellectual insight.
I walked in silence, and we parted politely.
