Dum things

We are indispensable to each other.

And not enough with that:

completely dependent.

Imagine, surviving the long winter, even when it is 20 below

By taking turns to be cold

Come you masters of war

Ah, a learned man, to paraphrase the “Thucydides trap” in postmodernist terms:

‘What makes modern war inevitable is the commercial interest in war’

The military industrial complex is what has caused the conflagration that is the “Arab Spring”‘, a trap well sprung indeed.

What would peace profit the masters of war!

 

which is of course why bob should’ve won the peace prize and not the literature prize, except of course that no one took him literally

Waves

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-point_energy

I liked:

In Wolfgang Pauli’s 1945 Nobel lecture[64] he made clear his opposition to the idea of zero-point energy stating “It is clear that this zero-point energy has no physical reality”.

Seems to me the wave equation couldn’t exist without energy?

Seven years of fat

Exposing the fossils

of a hundred million years

to combustion

we turn them into an infrastructure

that can only be supported

by an infinite supply

 

without turning our minds

to the concept

of the finite nature

of everything

 

sure

nature may

in one hundred million years more

recreate what it created

one hundre million years afore

but not before

 

60 years until concrete cancer

eats a building

that took 30000 years of energy to create

5 years until the obsolescence

built into an ipad

destroys another 2000 years

 

Should we really be basing our productivity

Our survivability and collective ingenuity

on the ability

to burn fossil fuels

into substitutability

Influence

Everyone can know something.

Doing something about it,

as a function of influence;

in the market democracy

capital is required.

We can all do something

to influence ourselves,

however not be able to,

influence the outcome

When Macron comes

The people will recognise

that politicians lie

to the people

 

deliberately

on behalf of corporate interests

that are not their interests

 

truth will create an upswell

but will it recognise truth

or self interest
