Re: Thought of the Day

The All or Nothing Society. Built especially for us, in our absence . A loss of discernment and corresponding blossoming of gullibility gives rise to an edifice that enfolds and clouds critical judgement. I am too kind - what critical judgement? None remains, except for a few small pockets. Ooo, lo...

Re: Thought of the Day

The 3state way of maintaining balance . In a reality where asking questions - or even thinking about asking questions - becomes a political crime, who benefits ? In the short term, yes, there are momentary groups of winners, but in the longer term, the possibly uncomfortable answer is that a degred...

Re: Thought of the Day

Ahhhh yes, where was I...The Future. Wondering if some of the basic assumptions about exactly what 'the ability to see into the future' is , may be underdeveloped. There are many, many possibible futures - yet only one - the one we follow. How's that for a paradox? So which came first - the chicken...

Re: Thought of the Day

When weapons have become so powerful - and that to deploy them against anyone but the weakest of foes is the only option - we find other ways to destroy ourselves. The machines have already won this battle . The unthinking, insensate, non-sentience that we ourselves have created - in the form of zer...

Re: Thought of the Day

The Realisation will be a sight to behold. It may be the first time excitement about the future has been felt in waht feels like aeons. Like a secret known to all, but which none care to talk about - The Realisation will facilitate widespread and wholehearted agreement amongst disparate and unconne...

on the day it comes home the children will say why? mummy and daddy, why? where was your mind? on a distant shore of coral and blue a candlelit dinner for two the tears at my coming my laugh at the fun our minds meet and we know we just know.

Re: Thought of the Day

The profession described as acting is little more than a series of movements between poses . There are four types of actor; those that perfect the art of seamless movement between mediocre poses; those that perfect the art of mediocre movement between exceptional poses; those that perfect the art of...

Re: Thought of the Day

Pull as I might, it just won't budge
I've punched and kicked and screamed
cajoled and coerced and flattered with dignity
sneaked up behind, dropped in from above
reached round,
touched with fingertips
heard the sound
grasped a flash
from beyond the shroud
it's there, I know it
just waiting to found

Re: Thought of the Day

The emergence of least-worst as de facto . The continuing revelations of how the world really works - which results in a lot more questions being asked than there are comfortable answers to - is becoming extremely close to passing the rubicon, into least-worst as de facto . Least-worst is possibly t...

Re: Thought of the Day

What is the natural, counterbalancing End-State of the celebrity narcissist / social media culture in which we live?

A mind-set that hates everybody else.

Re: Thought of the Day

Woke up thinking about wind . So I went looking. For facts about wind. And not the kind that smells a little of last nights supper. Have you ever wondered what is the fastest wind-speed humankind has ever been able to generate ? i.e. in a lab somewhere? It turns out that the fastest windspeed genera...

Re: Thought of the Day

Nature is kind - and also benevolent. And cruel. That Nature can hold three positions simultaneously is unsurprising. Within these great, slowly-grinding wheels of reality, balance will be maintained. This reality is a big place, with regards to scale . The balancing nature of seemingly unbalanced e...

Re: Thought of the Day

If you don't like what you see, it doesn't exist . If nothing else, consider the opposite as a possibility . Two wrongs makes things worse. If in doubt, think again . If climate change is real, why aren't we doing anything to reverse it's effects ? If there's a chance that climate change is corporat...

Re: Thought of the Day

There is a spreading groundswell of realisation growing, amongst not only the interested , but also the casually disinterested . But the fundamentalists - those that believe all that the mainstream history books tell them - will remain convinced that they are right, that the truth they learned from ...

Re: Thought of the Day

A modern faerytale . You are born into a society that has a certain set of criteria that it considers the rules - a moral code - things that are acceptable and things that are not. You grow up accepting these rules as normality, because the majority of parents, friends and people of influence that ...

Re: Thought of the Day

Moving images have drastically changed the mind-set of those human beings that regularly receive exposure to them. The moving image has become so ubiquitous in the Western world, that exponential acceleration of change in exposed mind-states is occuring at such a rate that we can only see the effect...

Re: Thought of the Day

It's impossible to take the established media seriously, any more. But at the same time, it's depressing to watch. This feeling of mirth at the ridiculousness of it all - combined with the doomish feeling that something is terribly wrong and that no-one is capable of correcting it - stirs up some mi...

Re: Thought of the Day

The Unbearable Reflection When you look in the mirror, you are seeing your opposite looking back at you. A mirror image . But, the mirror reflects but one aspect - the physical . They say vampires have no reflection - and of course they don't, because allegories are one step removed from physicalit...
