U is for Unending (my thoughts inexactly)

Blow all your money on revolution, and your revolution will blow away all money.

Embrace the asymmetrical with three arms.

If love derails you, then the train was heading straight for nowhere.

What if we counted vitalities, and not casualties? Would not then the obtuseness of war become evident? It is evident to all already, except for those that let the media call in for their own thoughts.

There was no 1491.

Calling this mediocrity is an insult to the mediocre.

A good map is like porno to a nomad. The name of each place is a moan, and the more rivers, waterways, valleys and mountains, the quicker the orgasm comes on. The nomad neither needs nor wants maps, for what is really desired is to touch a new stretch of Earth with every new day, knowing equally the beauty of one place and the horror of another will fade as a new destination comes in to view.

Any species that does not value its young above all else does not long continue as a species.

A coup d’etat against the devil, liberate the underworld…

Private security is a euphemism for neo-feudal Bannermen.

If a revolution isn’t paranoid enough, it will be eaten by others; if a revolution is too paranoid, it will eat itself.

The wearer of the crown is also weighed down by it.

There are many everyday heroes, but there are no all day heroes. Self-care is revolutionary, and without it the only revolution will be for the diseases.

Not every partner can be the one, but every partner can be the many—choose polyamory.

A warrior allows blood on his hands to defend the blood in his veins; a fascist allows blood on his hands because there is no blood in his veins.

When language grabs language fails to grasp.

What is the point of lifeless?

Extinction is genocide in slightly more politically convenient terms.

Corporations, like nation states, are human’s stupid and dangerous attempts to become immortal.

Don’t aim for a good ending, but a good continuing.

When one in power throws you a bone, you have to ask whose corpse it is coming from.

If looming Extinction doesn’t wake us up once and for all, the actual extinction will put us to rest once and for all.

Humans might never get to live in the time of the dinosaurs, but with our destructive disregard for the environment we will get to the world of dinosaurs.

The Shadow forces are indeed very mutable, so mutable that they can only exist when we mute ourselves.

The self absorbed first world will soon have nothing left to eat but itself.

If you want to be found, you must look.

The only boomer I listen to speaks with basslines.

If humans all live alone we will all die together.

The process of objectifying is far from objective.

Cars are higher on the food chain, they just don’t have the decency to eat what they kill.

The last children?

… meme from the upside down world.

Another sixth mass extinction meme. There are sure to be many more of these and other thoughts, and passions, about “THE PREVENTABLE DEATH OF HUMANS, MAMMALS, AND MOST SPECIES FROM THIS PLANET”

Fixed Shadows, Broken Humans

Shadows that grow
Shadows that decay
Now stuck with us
Are shadows that stay

Night is a time for darkness and for fire on the ground; day is a time for light coming from the fire in the sky. At night fire dances the shadows, and during day the fire that moves across the sky evolves the shadows by the moment. For Earth’s four and a half billion years, shadows would come and shadows would go, until now. Shadows were ephemeral until humans devised artificial light and “fixed” them. Artificial light brings with it artificial shadows, impregnating our reality with stagnant darkness, all the moreso because of our stagnant material objects.

Breaking Edison’s Idea: A Light Bulb Needs To Go Off
These artificial shadows brought on by artificial light scar the night and the day. Artificial light and its artificial shadows disrupt the flow of the balancing night, pulling us and other animals away from the magic of dark and sleep. The natural dark of night is attacked and made to contrast harshly with the bright polluting lights of modern civilization, straining our eyes with a constant unwavering sting, when our widened pupils have a want of darkness and sleep. During the day artificial light pulls us away from the Earthly atmosphere, and in to insulated and stagnant strucures we call “home” and “work”. The sun and sky are marginalized, and human-made lights steadily and stagnantly have us gravitating around them in stagnant and mis-circulated air.

Moving-light Therapy: Lux in Flux. A modest improvement on the besieged psychological life of a modern human stuck indoors is for the lights themselves to be moved around the room and dimmed and brightened subtly throughout the day. This mimicking of the sun across the sky will not provide the full spectrum of light given by the sun, but at the least lux in flux will evolve the shadows in a more psychologically healthful way.

A Dimmer Look At The Progress Of Civilization
With the peaking of artificial light in this 21st century has come the peaking of many other artifices—peak pollution, peak disease, peak war, and peak genocide—all together in a great and terrible wind that is The War Against The World. Life on Earth is at a nadir in this multi-millenial war against the world, culminating in the Sixth Mass Extinction Event, the first of the Mass Extinctions heralded by a single species—humans. All these life-destroying entities are correlated and all seem to be aided by the human method of sedentary and resource exhaustive deployment on the surfaces of the Earth. Artificial light has sped along our technological invasion of ecosystems and geological strata as we now have more time than ever before to devise more severe penetrations of the Earth.

To all this I say: Fiat Tenebrae (Let There Be Dark)

Lunar Appendage
The upcoming solar eclipse—which forced my hand to write this—is seminal in the daytime light and shadow play that is the most variable of any event on Earth for such a wide area. The moon turns the sun in to a flickering fire that casts a novel shadow and a ring of fire.

Beyond the occassional eclipse, the Moon is the false sun, for we only see the one side of the moon because of it’s tidal locking. It only reveals one undisturbed side of itself. It is both a permanent shadow and a permanent light, depending on the phase of the lunar cycle. It will be full shadow on the eclipse, perhaps only the Sun thus is able to reveal to us the Moon’s true nature. The Moon does not evolve with light or dark. It is not a becoming, it is quite fixed (and quite weak, chained to the Earth).

Editional (September 22)
We focus on the light, and energy more generally, as central, but really the history of the universe tells us that the great diffusion of these things is what is necessary for evolving a higher complexity.

Related Aphorisms 

We must be the night, not to defy the sun, but to preserve darkness from the gathering shadows.

When you are looking around for the shadow from the LED lights, and then to your horror you realize you are the shadow.

The difference between darkness and shadows is so profound that light stands in between them.

Run right at Sauron, and watch fire blink.

The light of science creates permanent objects of knowledge, but is blind to the unnatural permanent shadows on the far side of the light.

blinding dark

D is for Deepending

Start thinking of this as all of our land, or it will soon be realized as all of our graveyard.

The difference between pettiness and localism is so profound that globalization stands in between them.

If more of the world was like you, there would be more of the world.

Love takes two—and makes them one.

A warrior allows blood on his hands to defend the blood in his veins; a fascist allows blood on his hands because he has no blood in his veins.

We don’t really know how to live on the land if we have to kill it first.

Laughing at death is the humor that is found by we who cry at life.

Before you opened your mouth, everything you said was perfect.

If you do not wander, you will remain lost.

If losing you is part of the journey, then I would rather lose the journey.

The ball is always in your court, and your court is much wider than they would tell you.

Whenever you are, time makes it so that you were.

Artist do not fall into poverty, they choose to not live the impoverished life of possessing.

Sheep need weapons, lions need only roar.

The city got nicer and nicer the farther away from it I moved.

One too wedded to their ideas must ask what they have divorced from.

It’s not condescending, I’m speaking as I would have ever; you just happened to have lowered yourself.

Of course death can be beat indefinitely—it’s called birth. Immortality doesn’t beat death, immortality beats life. Death makes it so that we do not stagnate in immortality.

Stare in to the abyss, and watch the abyss run away scared.

The beauty of a hug has not been outdone by art or philosophy, but it is being undone by a cold society that embraces science.

Humans are one of the few animals in this zoo that are not given the compliment of a cage. They can be shown images to create docility that other animals would rage at.

If death were to leave us we would be on the ground begging for life to leave us, too.

The walls are not stagnant even if those inside them are.

You know intention has died when you are at the doorstep of the random.

Become a fascist and destroy humans, or become a human and destroy fascism.

Laws are the theft of justice from the human animal in which it intrinsically dwells.

Do not envy the eagles for the they must always look down; envy your future self, for that is to be freer and more beautiful than you.

Children are easy to scare because they have wild imaginations; adults are easy to scare because they have no imaginations.

D is Dumpstering…

Where have I been? Carless Karlos

Dear readers,

My writings over the past few years have attracted your curious minds to this blog, and I feel I should explain what I’ve been up to since my writings have dwindled and ceased since April this year. I have not been idle, but have been doing a combination of activism, excercising, and soul-searching (I think I’ve found some). I have walked/ran at least 350 miles, met hundreds of people, but rest assured that I have an overflowing amount of things I would love to write about if I could find the time. A grouping of aphorisms is usually the easiest to cobble together, and I might release this next (D is for …). But I also have something I am writing that I would like to get out before the solar eclipse coming Monday. Writing this is a nice way to ease in to writing that.

I said you were curious minds, in case you are curious about some of my whereabouts and activities here are some links to your beloved Karlos:
