The Intercolumn Reference — Demonstration of an Infinite Book



ICR — Definition of an Infinite Book


Multiple teams of volunteers tried multiple software packages and associated retyping and ingenious format designs to show the scope and intricacy of TBB intercolumn reference links as they flowed outward from one link to others and thence to others. All the attempts to subset the book were simply too labor intensive finally to complete. The teams concluded all their projects went infinite early, too rapidly to complete.


Might be helpful to those who try playing with the live ICR in the Online TBB. Article linked above.



Internet Version

The Online Boomer Bible with Live ICR


There are nearly 100,000 print copies out there, which means they’re available with some interruptions from Amazon but also from other book purveyors.


There is an online version, missing Front Matter and the Book of Harrier Brayer & Hymnal. What it does offer, though, is an astounding LIVE version of the Intercolumn Reference, which works beautifully well. This was an uncompensated labor of love by those who did the retyping and coding. The author can never repay his debt to them. What you can do is visit the link above and marvel at their cleverness and devotion.



The Original Boomer Bible Website (1994 - 201X)



TBB-9/11 Intro 



The Instapunk Connection (stick to the list of featured posts in the left hand column. The posts signed 'Brizoni’ are not mine, but those of a talented young man I hoped would take over the site. It didn’t work out.) 



The Main Title Site (Tons of stuff, fun & serious both, including much TBB text. The on-screen links are dicey now; some work but it’s a good way of getting lost. The links here should replace them adequately.)



A large text and link intensive area on the Internet for fans and students of the book to communicate and learn. There were three different branches of the site, as linked above and shown in the graphic below. Now, a surprising amount of The Boomer Bible site is still easily accessible via the links here.

On Kindle. Just answering the question the title asks. You can wait till I’m dead to look.

Using The Boomer Bible in the Classroom


Yes, he did. Tested them on dates in the book of Psayings and everything. Talked with them too. It was all Greek to them, but some got curious.



More Bibles

The Zeezer Bible AND The Snowflake Bible

Plenty of jokes and outrageous typefaces. What you find here is a second testament of The Zeezer Bible. Because it’s secret, that’s why. Six of its books are hidden in Shuteye Town 1999, and the organization of ST99 depended entirely from the first on this slender book. Not as long as TBB but what we got by letting the Baby Boomers inherit the earth. And the Snowflakes are today’s headlines and not much more. Nothing left to talk about.

Two more stair steps down the descent of generations.
