I have been rewarded and I have been punished. At the centre, 3state attentively waits, calm and manic, for the next.
Amongst the myriad, lays an answer for which I strive, but will it be the unknown answer I seek?
Or will it be the question I didn't know to ask?

There will be a perfect truth to counter the perfect lie.

The Things That No One Talks About.

The Supercome came back.

It's one of those things that you didn't realise you'd missed, until it comes back.

And then you really appreciate it.

It's not as though all the others are inferior - all have their merit. It's that the Super heralds something new.

Hasn't failed to deliver yet.

What happens when Humanity reaches Godhead Status?

When we can create anything we want, at will.

Wouldn't there be a nagging doubt? After all, Gods die. Yes, they do. All the time, through history. There have been many, now faded and lost.

How would you ensure against the death of your God species?
To guarantee continued existence, in perpetuity?
In the knowledge that you are Gods?

What might be a good project for a God civilisation? Something to keep them occupied.

Re-creation of themselves, perhaps?

In a reality as uncertain as this, it pays to have a back-up in place.

They await our certainty.

Is this the point at which we appear - and save ourselves?

If you hear my voice, you will know it is true
I whisper quiet, but the sound rings through
From one end, to the other
a path, a merry dance, a beginning and end
across the age; each born fresh and seen
To break the heart and mend anew

If you need an answer to a pressing question - and at this, you'll laugh - don't think about it.
Think about the question, but don't think about what the answer might be.
It's harder than you might imagine.
Hey Presto!

When we discover a new species, how do we know it didn't change from a species we have previously recorded into new species the night before we discover it? And that species change can only occur if unobserved?

Everything we know, we have learned from someone else, or have experienced.

I am pleased to report that The Mojo has returned.
The Supercome heralded it, thus.
I weep at the return
tear of joy, dampened eye
a clarity of sight
sweet dream awake
across the fields of colour
down to the river, across the sea
to take in all things
that are resplendant to me.

Time to wake up, human beings.

Slowly - slowly - it makes more sense. The structure is forming, materialising, layer by layer, upon the skeletal sub-structure.
It is starting to look as though almost everything we believe to be true is not.

Of course, to know it, you must access it - and to access it, you must know it's there. This is the conundrum.

Where then, are we headed?

In a reality in which money and commerce are the most, if not increasingly only important factors in the welfare (both mental and physical) of the inhabitants of that reality - when the economy fails, very bad things start to happen.

Anything in this reality that requires constant growth to survive and function correctly, is, by definition, insane. You have heard of this concept before, no doubt. We kid ourselves that we live in an infinite reality, but really, our reality is confined to a very, very small part of the imagined infinite.

We have not taken care of our home - and we are about to face the consequences.

The Western nations - propelled by greed - have entered into the whistle past the graveyard phase.

The Coronavirus is multi-talented.

It is infectious - just infectious enough to continue sustained growth, given the right circumstances - without getting over-exuberant. Some it chooses to kill, outright, by drowning. Others, it leaves as spreaders without symptoms, then lays in wait - dormant. In some cases, It destroys internal organs. In others, it enters the central nervous system, travels to the playground of mind and induces suicide. There will be other, as yet undiagnosed, outcomes.

Infection does not guarantee immunity - it may be that the virus can lay dormant for decades before re-activating or re-infecting.

There is little more offensive to the human mind - of this reality - than truth.

To be avoided at all costs. Too scary. Too upsetting.

It's going to be fascinating to watch the US in the next few months.

The great engine of their success - greed - has been surpassed by fear.

Fear that if too many people die from coronavirus, the economy will collapse.
Fear that if they don't restart working, en masse, the ecomony will collapse.

I smell irony.

It's the same for all of us, of course - in this shabby reality. But that's a peril inherent in the path that we have been led down.

Well, it just gets better and better, said in a bitterly sarcastic tone.

I'd give this species another 20-50 years.

Theirs, however, must - must - have been vastly old. Their self-control was unparalleled. To have kept it all ticking over, making minute adjustments here and there over the course of millenia - astounding!

Perhaps they did not have a concept of 'self'.

Maybe that's the answer.

When we developed the concept of self, it can still work up to point - then, suddenly, it doesn't.

In the last 500 years, we have moved from collective - to self

I suspect it has been a slow transformation - certainly to start with (mind you, once the mould had been broken, it was irrecovably changed from that moment onwards) - all the while, accelerating to where we are now.
It is now at the runaway train stage.

It explains how the civilisation that came before us, achieved that which it did.

And why we have done what we have done.

I can feel it coming.

Humanity - in all it's vastness, an infinite vastness - needs to coalesce as one. We have no choice.

To ride out the days we have left in harmony.
