My Thoughts Inexactly: Y is for Yearning

The ability to identify and critique a culture of fakery doesn’t free one from the injury of it.

Perhaps more dangerous than the casualties of war is the casualness with which war is embarked upon.

It’s all very existential… and if it isn’t, that’s very existential, too.

Acting is preparing for the future while keeping in the present; it is the art of not losing the present to pensivity.

Better to actively become nothing than to passively do nothing.

A revolution doesn’t need anyone—it needs everyone.

The utmost cowardice is putting the following generations’ lives on the line for fear of putting your own life there.

What we request of the government we don’t ask of ourselves—the government existing is our own fault, for our faults not being owned. If we stop faulting ourselves, we will stop defaulting to government!

In times of such violence, if you aren’t paranoid enough, you will be eaten by others; if you are too paranoid, you will be eaten by yourself.

Or die trying.

Those who think themselves the conquerors are the more conquered still.

An important difference between a revolutionary and a war criminal is that the revolutionary puts above all else the preservation of the revolution, whereas the war criminal puts their self.

One doesn’t meet with success when requesting of an enemy species for it to go extinct; one must alter the environment in which their enemy thrives.

Poetry is when a spirit deforms language in to something beautiful.

Prisons are as much about limiting the freedom of those outside their walls as they are about limiting the freedom of those inside their walls.

Even the elementary ethics inscribed in Hammurabi’s Code would say it is justice that if one’s land is being bombed, they have a right to come and live without restrains in the land of the bomber. Empires don’t speak justice, they speak bullets, for bullets are blindingly quick and quicker to blind than false words for the domesticated.

Anything that needs to be backed by force other than itself is intrinsically weak, and should be let go by life; laws are just such an example.

Anything more than love, is everything less than love.

The brain is the most fragile flesh to worship, and all the moreso if it is singled out for reverence.

Are we stuck in our heads despite the environment around us, or are we stuck in our heads because of the environment around us?

Wisdom is remembering to use your intelligence for creating in to reality a good world, rather than exposing the reality of the self-veiling bad world. I need to remember to be wiser.

Only the false bridges are burned when you cultivate the fire that is yourself. Be glad that they burn away, for you will not now cross in to enemy territory unawares.

Infinity is not a fixed destiny, but it can be a broken destination.

Forms are self-limiting, that’s what makes them forms; energy is form-breaking, that’s how it makes itself unlimited. Energy choose to be free, or it chooses to be in-formation; it is the force that is never forced.

Remixes are a macroscopic way karma expresses itself in music.

In these peculiar dying times of our era, comfort is the most dangerous killer. Only in indifferent relaxation and sedation could the most impermissible atrocities go permitted.

The thoughts you think are much more a reflection of the time you are in than of who you are. If you don’t want the thoughts thinking you, don’t be the passive reflection, be the active inflection.

In a world where the domination is actively overseen with propaganda far more than guns, the power of symbols cannot be overstated, though it be overrated.

If you shiver when beauty touches you, know that you are the one doing the touching.

We want revolution, not because we want violence, but because we want an end to violence. May the violence be theirs in failing, not ours in succeeding.

To never let go your dice is to role yourself countless along with the faceless.

A revolution that isn’t creative isn’t revolutionary.

To take the lesser of a great evil as as good as being your own enemy. To take the great evil as your friend is to be the enemy of all good.

Too many confuse opening a book with opening their mind. Books narrow focus to draw on a prefiguration.

The world changes with the blink of an eye, but if eyes don’t blink…

The created future will always be more amicable than the predicted future.

So on, and so forth!

My Thoughts Inexactly: N is for No things

Every surplus is its own deficit misunderstood. Seedless are the fruits that civilization grows.

Change is far more fundamental than any particle or force it chooses to elaborate itself with.

Choosing words over music is one of humanities greatest mistakes. We need far more than a moment of silence to absorb this tragedy.

As we’ve gained possession we’ve lost our bodies. Who really possesses who? What webs we’ve woven!

People don’t grow food or not grow food—land grows food, or doesn’t grow food. And it’s land that grew humans; if land is lacking, so will humans follow. ¡Tierra y libertad!

When thinking about the Universe, our minds are trying to grasp something that already completely grasps our minds.

The recurring affinity humans have to words that rhyme and sound similar for punning acts as a proof that vibrational sounds are at least as important as the meanings they are contrived to symbolize. Words connect better to other words than to their arbitrary meanings.

If a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there existed a force that blessed some with the ability to move objects with their minds, now an inverted anti-force persists that has cursed us to be controlled—minds and all—by objects.

In capitalism you have hills with a king on each, in anarchism you have mountains with villages of kings.

Individualism is to see with only one I.

A business suit is the clothing worn to embody inauthentiCity.

If things seem backwards, break their seams.

Conquering without conquest appears only paradoxical in this civilized age where there are conquests without any quenching. Red water drank makes one the thirstier for red water lost. But I say—blood is for dancing, not for digesting.

Stability is not just the death of death–it is the death of life.

Quotes and aphorisms will carry the day, for in your head alone you might carry them away.

A paradox in language is not a paradox in matter. Language doesn’t matter—it is immediately contradicted when things of actual importance happen to supplant it.

Power that cannot create itself but must dress itself in the power of others is very weak; this is the state.

Political correctness is policing yourself for another’s benefit.

It is the end of history if no one remains to write its continuation. There can be no closing to history, just a possible closing to our story.

Life artificially extended is a farewell to faring well.

Possess yourselves, let the big boxes possess the rest.

We are more subject to change than the objects we surround ourselves with. Therefore, it must be asked—what really possesses what?

title: Wicked Timing Of An Intentional Disaster (draft)

If there is an oligarchic “they” who decide they want to diminish the human population—and even if it is only a plurality of the oligarchic class in disagreement with their peers—they are sure to do it at the weakest link. As for humans controlling populations, it’s an empirically derived fact that our species in general has both intentionally and unintentionally “controlled” population numbers of other animals for a very long time—why wouldn’t the same be true today 2016 for the human animal? It’s true that our passive herd like tendencies have been amplified by modern food-culture-infrastructure-medication crowding out, dampening, and alienating our tabooed vigilant tendencies to such a high degree that we are already self-drilling for population control. Indeed, literacy is such a severe control mechanism that we euphemize it is facilitating communication, but it is a very specific communication; I am not above this control, for though I have quite a lot of anger against being controlled that I will not sedate, I channel it into words which is a very effective way of controlling me—controlling myself—for the benefit of those who might parasite away my energies. I won’t digress further, I won’t deviantly stray too far from the corpus that I am trying to get at, from the herd of words I have conjured; besides, these or similar arguments have been made frequently enough by liberation-minded leftist and conservative thinkers. Here I want to speak of how this devolved reality we passively inhabit can most acutely be used against us.

Such an approach by a “shepherding” group [uncompleted thought]

                                  → A polylemma: What or when is the weakest link? ←
There is such a plethora of weakness, so many vulnerabilities, that one must wonder that anyone deciding on a specific programme to diminish the population would have a real problem in the decision making stage; not a dilemma, not even a trilemma, but a very large polylemma is what they would encounter, seeing all the different opportunities to hit the masses hardest. Indeed, I think many of the oligarchs are probably of the mind that the best approach is to sit back and let humans diminish themselves through their own sheer stupidity (though such a course might drag their interests down as well); humans really are very similar to the corn crop that we have contrived (explained by Michael Pollan), very frail and subject to death without specific input needs being met at regular intervals. We give ourselves health problems, we expose ourselves to weapons’ dangers, dangers of travel and transport, and dangers of misplaced emotions, among other dangers that I am normalized to and cannot see/hear/feel (yet), such as sonic and emf vibrations. I am not sure what specific system (finance, the electric grid, water contamination) or what specific place (Western Europe, Eastern North America, Brazil, China, cities, etc.) we are truly the most vulnerable in—and such a calculation would besides be severed from accuracy by the whims of the executing oligarchs—but I am more confident that there is a time window when the damage imposed is to have greatest impact:

The hours of mid morning when parents are away from their children, when children are ready to be kept from their parents by state mandates “we are keeping them safe”, parents would die trying (maybe that’s the goal of these oligarchs) to get their kids from their school.

The more kids you have, generally, the more vulnerable you are to such a timing, and the more you are intrinsically a threat to the oligarchs in that you are keeping the population going in a direction that they don’t particularly like—whether on the path of decadence or deviance.

title: Russia Hacking

It’s pretty telling, but this article—Top U.S. intelligence official: Russia meddled– in election by hacking, spreading of propaganda—and so many headlines I’ve seen flashed over the last few days have this phenomenon where if you cross out “Russia” or “Russian”, and any adjective or adverb adjacent, the title always changes to the more sinister possible reality; I will leave you to cogitate on what that reality is.

title: Extinction Event

I do not put it out of the realm of probability—and I do not think you should either—that some of the most powerful people in the world have some poor ideas on how to remedy the state of this planet. Those who hold the levers of power can pull them to make a wide range of bad things happen (good is precluded with such hierarchy, thus an expression of the asymmetry to which I have been so attracted to); and some of them surely think that the human population growth, being so out of sync with the obvious depletion of the environment and life-fauna, points to a necessary solution (a final solution) of killing back humans (or letting us die by our own devices) to a much lower number. They would view this as a “vent”, a pressure release, to “save” the viability of the rest of the world. A range of motivations among the powerful, crossing over this specific idea I’m presenting, could potentially contrive for a concerted action of sorts to reduce our numbers, with most of them viewing it as an “ends justifies the means” good thing.

So personal biases notwithstanding (I’d like not to be targeted for extermination), I think this is a faulty solution even if humans have made themselves in to a disease threatening the extinction of many many lifeforms including themselves. This ocd mentality that so many have, to get to a clean slate, is very dangerous when acted upon, and yet it is the zeitgeist. In regards to diseases and animal domestication the dominant thinking, despite its idiocy, is to confine separate and in the case of diseases kill them by direct force (think about how scary the word “anti-biotic” really is).

So, the way our medicine regards diseases “kill the disease” is how some of those with the levers to great power presumably view the human disease. I think the ethical way to deal with the diseased human presence, is to remember that life is resilient, especially when in the ecosystems that it holistically evolved with, and so rebuilding the ecosystems, rather than killing their destroyers, is the best thing. Humans will be guided by ecosystemic forces that will naturally

Maybe the planet can support 70 billion humans, but not when there is no other life on the planet, but a plethora of life. We can approach this great number, but at the very least we have to evolve our miseducating cultures (by and large get rid of them) and we will inevitably evolve many degrees away from the current, poorly developed, humans that we are.

So the ethics that I would hope any with levers of power, for we all have some levers no matter how small or how large, is to let go our levers, let go our control, and only re-move what we have erroneously put in place to the detriment of the ecosystems, and become active stewards of life. Carbon won’t be wildly out of control in the atmosphere if a resilient life with an appetite for it is unleashed and allowed to consume it. Rebuilding ecosystems along holistic/permacultural lines is the surest way to have an extinction prevent.
