Time

As to why one cannot travel in the meter or more precisely whether the action before the action caused the action?

Before time immemorial there was not time
but neither was there nothing,
everything existed
but without the potential to be anything else
entropy was absolute.

Energy came into this material existence
embuing matter with potential
and only two rules
1. Energy changes the potential of matter to do work but energy doesn’t change
2. Any change in potential is irreversible / once a thing does a thing it cannot do the exact same thing again.

The cascade of events whereby energy changes the potential of matter
What we call time

an illusion where
the particulate and energetic change in the caesium atom
is measurable through observation

One cannot travel in time because time is simply a single state observation of a series of unrepeatable changes in the state of matter

Schrodinger said that is you had perfect infromation about the current state of every piece of matter, physics would allow you to predict the future because the patterns of change are predictable. So predictable that the patterns form irriversible and infinite palindromes in mathematics.

Since energy doesn’t decay,
is then the production of matter cyclical or is matter, the space in which it exists and the time taken to change it finite?

Morals

The guys that put the guys in charge are the guys in charge. Hence they put guys in charge that aren’t any threat to the guys in charge.

Look at the Donald and the soon to be Boris (Alex), sure they can have the top job because representative democracy is a total joke. A slight generalisation to be sure but people elect idiots because the guys in charge plant the idiot ideas in their minds through the media they are also in charge of.

Worth reading Albert Camus:

“There can be no question of holding forth on ethics. I have seen people behave badly with great morality and I note every day that integrity has no need of rules”

Integrity has alas no longer a broadly recognised social value. This large scale embrace of what once were considered, and still are in point of fact, seven deadly sins, is a social evolution sponsored by those in charge of value-making.

It bodes ill, not only in a Christian or moral sense, but in the terms of the building of ideals to acheive social goals. When everyone is only concerned for themselves you get a form of ego-inspired anarchy where nothing exists except for oneself.

If that doesn’t concern you then time to read Orwells “How the poor die”, the fate of the 95% is reaching out to the rest of us.

We have built an infrastructure that cannot be maintained, in order to finance the present overshoot and pretend tha business as usual is a viable proposition we are selling the future into a natural resource debt that is potentially fatal not only for most species but also for most of humanity.

And those in charge have determined that the only way of propagating this myth of eternal growth is by corrupting individual morals to the point where the cure is viewed to be worse than the disease. Those that make the running would rather embrace total disaster than give away a dime.

The cat

Framing the question, is the cat actually there?

So the partial is thought to exist,
when and where it is observed.
What if the particle,
has in fact
The potential to be everywhere

Are our senses,
essentially misleading us?
In such.
We can only observe,
that which we can see, feel or touch.

The truth
of observation.
Must be.
That there are things
we cannot see.

EROI of energy available to do work peaked in 1920’s
burning 100million years worth of stored solar energy in 200 odd years is frying the planet, and the oceans – we all know this by now.

Consumption based overpopulation means using the biosphere at an unsustainable rate, outcompeting other species leading to the mass extinctions with
pollution taking care of the rest; plastic, inorganic solvents, heavy metals all creeping up the food chain.

The weapons industry is the single biggest contributor to Global GDP and climate change, in order that we might fight ourselves over religious, cultural or colour differences.

50 plus years of consumptive propaganda means that the addicts don’t want to stop even when the end result starts slapping them in the face. Specifically designed to distract you and distort your moral ethics so we can consume the last few good bits.

Life

straight to the pointy end,
life is planetary.
The millennial aims to consume it, and
replace the real with a digital representation,
Which reality is within our grasp.

We’ve talked about value,
of the mercentalisation of everything.
Use the biotope to create waste
to destroy habitat and ecology,
in the hope of more success.

Discussions of goal state.
Growth must.
As we eat the planet,
maintenance costs are already more,
than the future can afford.

Distraction the paramour,
enamoured with our multicellular entanglement,
we view the destruction with amusement.
Life as information,
hardens to the screams.

Legrange

We ought then to regard the present state of the universe as the effect of its anterior state and as the cause of the one which is to follow. Given for one instant an intelligence which could comprehend all the forces by which nature is animated and the respective situation of the beings who compose it—an intelligence sufficiently vast to submit these data to analysis—it would embrace in the same formula the movements of the greatest bodies of the universe and those of the lightest atom; for it, nothing would be uncertain and the future, as the past, would be present to its eyes.

Economists spouting ceteris paribus do not even begin to glimpse the future their consumptive growth is causing.

We who see the effects of the cause are subject the same entropic constraints as the economy. Only we choose not to disregard the ecosystem that gives us life. The economy seems to think it can exist without life, who knows, maybe the future really is digital.

God dag

Dette er et spennende tema og det kunne har vært enda mer spennende om utvalget tok opp temaer rundt hvordan et nullutslippsamfunn kommer til å se ut. Dette er et av hovedmålene for staten Norge men det er lite snakk om hva salgs omstillinger som må skje for å komme dit hen. Man ser allerede i dagens Frankrike konsekvenser av å ta politisk valg uten å få med velgerne. Det er påfallende at man har nesten 100 prosent politisk støtte for et informasjon- og handlings- system som oppfordrer folk til å forbruke mer, er med på å opprette kjøpelyst som et avhengighet og som tynger fremtidige generasjoner i gjeld.

Det er godt kjent at forbruk i Norge tilsvarer minst 3 kloder, det er rett og slett ikke mulig å nå et eneste bærekraftig mål med dagens grad av bruk og kast. Man vet også at innhenting av fossil ressurser går mot den energiske grensen. EROI, energy return on (energy) investment av ‘fornybar’ kilder er meget lav og det finnes ikke flere kjente energikilder som kan drive veksten globalt. Norge er tjent med fornybar kilder men er dette også et politisk risiko ettersom andre Stater begynne å sulte etter energi?

Det er viktig at Staten begynne å ta opp tema blant folk for å vekke oppsikt og begynne samtalen om total -kostnad og -nytte av forbruksmodellen. Det er tross alt higen etter den økonomiske veksten som forårsaker forbrenning av fossiler (lagret solenergi) med CO2 som kjemiske restprodukt. Bærekraftighet i dagens Norge er basert på leveranser fra den globale markedet, hvordan ser denne ut uten fossil brensel eller med nullutslipp? Man burde stille spørsmål om hvilket grad av ressursforbruk er ønskelig og om dette kan dekkes innenfor den bio-basert sirkulær økonomien.

Takk for muligheten til å komme med innspill.

Efficiency

Privatisation of the means of producing capital is a tenet of capitalism, private owners make decisions based on higher profits, business growth, and market share i.e. returns to shareholders.

There is nothing inherently efficient about that other than that the decision making criteria rarely takes into account, let alone compensates for, the resources, energy and lives wasted. If these do not effect private profit then these are known as externalities and the cost is borne by society at large and the environment.

It is worth noting that as the global energy return on energy invested continues its long decline, the average standard of living only rose during the last two or three generations because of rising household debt.

The only thing capitalism is really any good at is consuming the resources of the future today through fractionally reserved debt arrangements. I think you will find that while mainstream politicians preach jobs and growth, schools are teaching about mountains of plastic in the ocean, mass global coral deaths, accelerating species eradication, global warming, ERoEI, and the impossibility of infinite growth based on the consumption of a finite natural resource stocks.

Maybe read some shit before spouting that stupid party line that the market will fix everything through efficiency. The market has effectively and efficiently gotten us to the brink of system collapse while espousing every known social corruption as a virtue.
