K is for Not Knowing (my thoughts inexactly)

It is the full plate that keeps one insatiably hungry.

Machines don’t get turned on by humans, but machines get turned on by humans. Why continue to create and give form to that which is in its very embodiment anti-sexual and anti-vital?

Our energy can animate our machines or it can animate our bodies. The choice of energy is currently ours, but it may become the choice of machines.

Bullshit is fine—it’s machine shit that is going to kill us.

There are no perfect persons, only imperfect policies. People together perfect one another, and preclude the need for policies.

A series of false false flags does much service to obscure real false flags.

If you see the world as governed by their rules, then you have already lost.

If you eat winter food all year round, you’re going to look and feel like winter.

The choice is yours—you can change sides in this war against the world and choose to defend the Earth.

We have lost ourselves by such vast distances that no plain use of vision could lead us back to the lost world; we must blind ourselves and listen for the deep echoes from the past—echoes unmediated by artifice.

Whoever draws first blood will write the story with their own.

Some books are burned and people protest; protesters are burned and books forget them.

The media can only exist in a lost localism—a vacuum that is euphemistically referred to as globalization. You need not be a victim to media saturation because you can separate yourself from the separation, and unite with your immediacy.

If we do not wander, we will remain lost.

The route to lowering carbon is not going to be done through Western argumentation or policy, for that in itself is what got us to this very precarious situation that evades the narrow western lens that can only see “carbon”. Rather, what is needed to solve the beyond-carbon-problem is for traditional indigenous land relationships to be adopted—despite any skepticism that a stupifying western science might engineer—that will cycle carbon and other industrially misapprehended elements back in to reemerging ecosystems.

For every tower of knowledge, the shadows cast are far darker than any illumination. So vastly obscuring is knowledge that our eyes forget that they are blinded.

Leave it to words to give the lengthy signifier to immediate. Only logic would breed the peculiar notion that combining something with its reversal could equal its annihilation. I.e. Writing “immediate” is to write an oxymoron.

Publish mediately?

P is for Propagating (my thoughts inexactly)

You needn’t apologize for being different, you only need apologize for being the same.

Justice is not to be found on a 12,000 year dusty walk of the pen, but by one dropping the pen and standing up. We cannot write our way, nor right our way to justice; laws themselves are in our way to justice. All we need is to quiet our words and access our empathetic imagination, standing right where we are.

I only write poetry in your absence; for in your presence there is poetry enough already.

I am too occupied fighting the delusions of others to focus on fighting my own.

We worry about our own future and the meddle in the present of others, when really we should worry about the future of others and focus on our own present. Society will remain backwards until this equation is flipped back.

You can destroy skin to discover muscles. You can destroy muscles to discover bone. You can destroy bone to discover death. But if you try to destroy death, you will destroy life in the process.

The toil of creating and maintaining walls is the putting of yourself under siege.

These will be the final days or the first days.

There is no more sleeping, humans will either wake up or be killed in their sleep.

The educated are the most severely distracted.

Invest your time and energy into structures, and you will find the structures to not be the only hollow thing.

I are alone. A riddle with a simple solution.

Fanon wrote with his own blood as well as with ink, something few other philosophers could say for themselves.

You don’t have to be out to prove the whole world wrong, the whole world is doing that itself.

Back in the day children had access to the best toys of all, each other. Now it is night, and we are alone.

Conquerors may take over entire continents, yet they will remain standing in the same hollowed out place in their bodies.

It’s the tragedy of who you brought to the commons. You didn’t bring humans, you brought the individualized.

Science—does it awaken us or weaken us?

Live and learn. Die and learn?

It’s when the dice stop rolling that you lose.

Have you played your roll? To do nothing is to gamble away something.

The problem with musical chairs is not when the chairs lack but when the music lacks.

It is the chair that topples us all.

In the daunting task to topple the state, you must make sure not to topple yourself.

The present is our greatest gift. Don’t overlook it or life will overlook you.

A leader does not teach others to kneel, but inspires them to rise.

Logic = Illogic

Law trials are not about justice, they are a sport between highly paid professionals who compete at the onlooker’s expense.

If the effort to make a fool of takes more than one person, there is more than one fool.

Those who do no wander will remain lost; stagnancy makes them more prone to frost; sedentary lifestyle has for all a cost; the entire Earth is to soon exhaust.

Their medicine filters in to your blood, and your blood filters out of you.

P is not for Publishing, nor Perishing. We fight on, and with more than our words!

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
