Too much time spent de-frazzing instances of the word "world", throughout:

Section: 32 - 80. Reincarnation
URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/n19/someansweredquestions_32_abbas.mp3
Length: 19:52

And my voice seems to have raised itself half-an-octave. Nonetheless, I was able to remain content-focused. His syntax tried to get the better of me, in a couple of places; someone more familiar with "the material" should be able to tell me if I've altered the meaning. Reading 'Abdu’l-Bahá right alongside Schopenhauer may not have been especially clever of me. But, much enjoyed, thanks.

Great. Indeed, 'Abdu’l-Bahá is challenging, especially when explaining deep concepts.

Hi everyone,
Section 3 only 8 sec silence @ end/otherwise PL OK
Section 4 PL OK ;
Section 5 has at the beginning "section 4" /otherwise PL OK;
Section 6 PL OK ; Section 7 PL OK ; Section 8 PL OK ;

In the other sections the Section #s were not read at beginning of section like you did, Nicholas, do you want that part at the beginning? :hmm:

If not
Section 20 Part 4 PL OK
Section 24 p 262 @ 1:04 stumble over "nature"' title in id3 tag " 'Abdu'l-Baha 'Abbas" not "'Abdu’l-Bahá ‘Abbás"

Sections 31 PL OK & 32 PL OK
I'll wait to hear back before I update these last sections in the MW as PL OK .

I'd prefer if the section number were read first so that the project is more uniform.

The tags can be fixed when cataloging.

Sorry to see I'm not the only one mired in confusion about "section" vs. "chapter":

Section: 30 - 77. The Right Method of Treating Criminals
URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/n19/someansweredquestions_30_abbas.mp3
Length: 12:35

I could, absolutely, edit my recordings, if you'd imagine that to be helpful.

I've added the necessary 5 seconds of silence to the ends of sections 00-02. :)

Here's hoping I've interpreted correctly:

An aside on "Laura Clifford Barney": should her memoirs ever be declassified ["There is a copy of her unpublished memoirs in the Bahai national archives in France."], I wonder if she mentions somebody like Schopenhauer as source-material for these questions she invited ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to answer. :hmm:

Hi,
Section 20- needs "section #" instead of "chapter #" in intro and outro;
@ 4:44 heard 'animal' not 'endless' in "all these endless beings which inhabit the world, whether man, animal";
@ 6:23 heard an added 'to their nature" in "...all these endless beings which inhabit the world, whether man, anima...l";
@ 10:42 heard 'members' not 'numbers' in "...the origin of all numbers is one and not two.";
@ 14:41 heard "But" not "And" in "And in the same way...";
@ 34:15 heard "from" not "this" in "Thus this light is the vibration of that..."

Edited to add:
Sections 30 & 31 are now PL OK :clap:
