Wisdom and Mirages 0001

Walls are the doors we must walk through.

Start by continuing, not by starting.

The only way for my enemies to move up in the world is from the ground to the table.

Nationalism is narcissism without the mirrors.

Doves don’t want to offend hawks, and so they offend themselves.

Marathons and wisdom end at Athens.

Decimation is an understatement by a factor of ten of what we are doing to the planet.

There is no time unlike the present. It is all we have. It is all we need.

You don’t have to have a good idea to quit the rat race—quitting the rat race is the good idea.

If fires get old they weren’t fires.

Nothing is foundational—not even nothing.

Money is dried up the moment it’s created.

There’s no body but skeletons to blame.

Contextual memory seems out of context in the repetitive monotony of advanced civilization.

There are millions of fish in the sea, and to know the deepest ones is worth drowning in the darkness. And others aren’t worth wading a moment for.

The for wayward.

The universe is forgiving and forgetting itself as it grows. #eternaldifference

To grip your own freedom makes the tightest fist, for it didn’t exist beforehand.

 

Most use their hammer to chisel away at their own freedom rather than swing it at those that would accelerate its erosion.

Dying is the opposite of life, not death.

Permaculture is the reinstitution of institutionless difference.

If threats against you are able then to make you a threat against others, then you are a pawn made to support the hierarchy of enslavement.

The dark neither burns, nor pales us—leave that to the shadows.

The biggest disease we brought here was ourselves.

Claim your life as your own. It’s a hard fight, the fight of your life really–but you are worth it.

Walk in to the Atacama alive, and you may walk out with your life…

The bathwater has to be thrown out before it drowns the baby.

Your parents conceive you, but you give birth to you.

Go through their doors or go through their walls.

There are better ways than being kicked in the balls to be reminded that you have them.

Bite your tongue enough and your mouth can’t speak and your stomach can’t swallow.

Walls are the first and longest lasting siege.

If it’s truly your freedom than how could another have it to keep or distribute?

They are too well guarded, and we are too well hidden; and so the dance continues.

You move me so, and so I stay.

We can starve ourselves all we want, but until we feed ourselves our movements can only be reactive and not proactive. #permaculture

King is only an echo without a source.

We that show up, show on.

C is for Collapsing: My Thoughts Iñexactly

The proof that the 60s were not that radical is that the 70s 80s and 90s followed them.

I cried a lot when I learned of his death. I cried a lot more when I learned of his life.

From which direction are the gateways guarding?

Humans went extinct long ago, it’s just that their disease lingers to torment other species.

Roll with the punches? How about throw some punches and watch the already lifeless roll over.

It’s the machines of the dead that haunt us not their spirits.

We don’t stand a chance if we don’t stand.

The flaw with every great individual is that there is only one of them.

Rabid individualism destroys the world—one person at a time.

Do we really think we can suffocate the Earth and not be suffocating ourselves?

If you are scared of what they will do to us when we strike, just imagine what they will do to us when they strike.

Break the rules so they don’t exist anymore.

I will believe the conspiracies after they kill me.

European colonialism is nothing more than the search outward for new victims.

Time destroys coliseums when it should be gladiators.

Cars are going to hell either way, it’s our choice whether or not we stay along for the ride.

In this time of greatest dissonance the truth rings the most, but it does not ring true.

Capitalism is to get nothing for something.

There’s no body to blame, just the skeletons.

I have sex with ideas, and you would be hard put to call the outcome a reproduction.

Those who don’t understand there is a war are usually already kneeling.

If you dropped the y it would be ours already.

Unmake America and gain.

A symptom will kill us, but the disease had us dead long ago.

There being nothing to hear is scarier than the deafness.

Nascar is an instance of humans gathering around to watch the death of the planet rather than the death of gladiators.

Unfortunately the faults in the system don’t break the system, only the systematized.

If they sweat enough you will stop seeing Che on their shirts and start seeing Che on their faces.

Who have we been turned into?

To only the whole Earth does the full moon let itself be captured.

Most are blind to the artificial background that structures the oppression we feel, and in our blindness we have nobody left to blame but one another. We do not understand the war made upon us, yet we cannot negate the effects it has on us, and so we retaliate and amplify the role of our fellow victims in our own injuries, and in so doing amplify their injuries. We are in the pressure chamber, it is up to us whether or not we remove the walls or allow them.

If you throw yourself completely Into the web of life, death will have a hard time untangling you.

Walls just echo in diminished form what they hear, for they offer no difference. Do not be a wall–dance the music that hits and penetrates you, honoring the music by extending it in to the unknown.

The sun sees for us, and we see for the moon.

Humans-a species that rushes through life to get to its death.

No people will survive long without 7 generations. A people is hard put to survive while missing 1 generation. You can be on team 7 generations or on team extinction. But if you choose the latter, you will come to have no team, just meat.

The only thing worse than group think is individual think.

The solstice is not just a specific time it’s a specific place. And at this center shadows don’t exist and yet shadow energy exists the stronger.

Dialectics is meaningless to the dead.

And that’s why it’s a war.

Capitalism is to get nothing for something.

Iñexactly.

If your quote’s too long
It better be a song
And if it’s not…
Sing its memory so long

My Thoughts Inexactly: Z is for Zeroing (2018 Remix)

It is not enough to only lose your own chains, for if your comrades don’t lose theirs you are sure to keep tripping over them.

The only thing worse than a single leader is a single enemy.

From hand in hand to device in hand. Alienation has become very human.

Maturity is reached when the desire to go back in time ceases. Maturity is not fixed nor one way, as made plain by the aged. We immature as often as we mature. Civilization tends to invert the direction of maturity—one of the great many inversions.

Money is how the past comes to control the present. Inheritance of such control is not a present, but a curse.

If you are only interested in maximizing your existence in this world, then you are fortunate for your interests match the reality.

Those who commit themselves to total war are usually the first casualty.

Doing nothing is death.

You will never be the same, as you never were the same.

Attention is intention.

We rise to the occasion, not because of what we are, but because of the occasion life is.

Better a mistake of words than a mistake of weapons.

The Universe is not built out of particles, it is built in to them.

The zeroth dimension endures all different spaces. It is everywhere without running through anything.

The universe speaks to itself–keep listening.

The olders are not our elders, they are our enemies. They didn’t plant seeds for us, they chose to plant concrete instead. Fuck them.

The disease that has many fingers but few eyes.

Man-aged or man-lived. We must choose wisely, for ourselves and for our future!

Polyamory, because then everybody’s doing it.

Instead of cars that drive themselves, what about people that walk themselves?

I’d prefer a forest to an aphorist, but since I am not even grown to the depth of a single tree, I must choose the latter to taste such heights.

Parts are important enough to stop regarding them as mere parts.

If it isn’t visceral enough it isn’t real enough. Too regularly the artificial layers acting as a protective glove will suffocate the naked hands of we the primary creators.

Tribes raise children, parents raise hell raisers. How to climb back up to Earth and its tribes?

An hour long lecture from the ocean has greater value than a two semester seminar at the likes of a Harvard or Cambridge.

You are the flower.

If you won’t be with the whole, you’ll be apart, leaving a hole behind.

It is not the problem of being too introverted or too extroverted—it is the sitting on the wall that we built between the two, stagnant and unmoved by either… diverted.

They ask me why I travel to places where I don’t know anyone, and I respond that it’s no different than here, for they don’t know me.

Writing feels terribly futile, probably because it is!

Civilization doesn’t provide us the luxury of time for rumination, it provides us a plethora of lonely spaces that we can only fill with melancholic rumination.

The one and lonly.

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?
