  1. The agnotology is the knowledge of your future.

      Thanks. I see. I've now looked it up. So it is from Greek for not knowing rather than Latin for sheep. I see the term was coined in 1995, so that explains why I had not heard of it.

      Would this be something to do with sheep?

  3. My wife, Nancy, passed away the morning of the 16th in her sleep. I am lost, I don't know what to do, I keep thinking I'll ask Nancy what to do then it hits me again.

      Keep buggering on. Do what you have to do: inform everyone, arrange the funeral and all that. When my wife died I found the problem was the emptiness after all that was done. Luckily, in a sense, I had a teenage son to bring up, so I had to keep life running normally and keep up appearances. If it is just you in the household now, I can imagine it must be even harder to keep going.

      As for asking your wife what to do, that goes on a long time. Even now, 5 years on, I often find myself asking what my wife would want or how she would have handled something. I also still get a lot of dreams in which she is present. Often we chat and I ask how she can be there in spite of being dead, and things like that. It is all very friendly but I wake up feeling a bit strange. (I wonder if such experiences are common and whether that may be where the idea of ghosts comes from.)

      It's a bit of a marathon. Life will acquire meaning again, but it will take time.

      You have all my sympathy.
