|Who is Mark Hunter?
Truly, as a personal identifier, "Mark Hunter" isn't as uniquely keyed as, say, "Kareem
There are, in fact, more than a couple of guys named Mark Hunter here on Planet Earth (and at least two girls), but this site is only for one, very specifc, Mark Hunter.
No, not the talented forward and 1989
Stanley Cup Winner.
And No, not the angry teenage radio DJ from the movie "Pump up the Volume".
This site is for the OTHER Mark Hunter.
The smart, sexy one.
And if you don't know who that would be, well, then I just have to wonder...
"Why the hell did you come to his web site?"
Welcome. And Congratulations.
I'm delighted that you could make it. Getting here
wasn't easy, I know.
In fact, I suspect it was a little tougher than you
For you to be here now, trillions of drifting atoms
somehow had to assemble in an intricate and
intriguingly obliging manner to create you. It's an
arrangement so specialized and particular that it
has never been tried before, and will only exist
For the next many years (we hope), these tiny
particles will uncomplainingly engage in all the
billions of deft cooperative efforts necessary to
keep you intact, and let you experience the
extremely agreeable, but generally unappreciated
state known as "existence".
Why atoms take this trouble is a bit of a puzzle.
They ARE mindless particles, after all, and not even
It is a slightly arresting notion that if you were
to pick yourself apart with tweezers, one atom at a
time, you would produce a mound of fine atomic dust,
NONE of which had ever been alive, but ALL of which
had once been you.
Yet, somehow, for the period of your existence, they
will answer to a single overarching impulse: to keep
The bad news is that atoms are fickle, and their
time of devotion is fleeting indeed. Even a long
human life adds up to only about 650,000 hours, and
when that modest milestone flashes past, for reasons
unknown, your atoms will shut you down, silently
disassemble, and go off to BE other things.
And that's IT...for you.
Still, you may rejoice that it happens
at all. Generally speaking in the universe, it
doesn't...so far as we can tell.
