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?
