Mirages Of Wisdom 0003

Extinction is our precluding not our concluding.

A shattered mirror can reflect light in unprecedented ways.

The fear of death kills you.

Too often we confuse our olders with our elders.

The clouds of heaven cast great shadows upon this Earth.

Over and under, because over and over is not working.

Phones are easy to program—humans are easier.

Only a diseased society would view the birth of a child as the end of the party and not its continuation.

Magic wears off because we don’t leave it naked.

You are always on the cusp of greatness because you are always on the edge of your real self. Just dive in.

Take the dive in to yourself because it’s difficult swimming on the rocky edge.

The punishment its the crime; the punishment is the crime.

We must wander or we will remain lost.

When life throws crazy shit at you, throw some crazier shit back.

Globalization or the Earth—you choose (which to care about).

Unfettered capitalists—not even fettered by capitalism.

Play your magic.

The very existence of mandatory schools for children is itself ageist segregation for the youngest people from actual connections to real power. Those with the most time left on this planet have the least say over how it is managed and run.

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.

we built a bridge (poem)

the river surges
the river dwindles
the river flows peacefully
not important
we built a bridge over it

the earth yearns
the earth heals
the earth grows
not important
we built a parking lot over it

the day is bright
the day is rainy
the day includes us
not important
we built a roof under it

the human is happy
the human is sad
the human is content
not important
we built medicine for that

the human has anger
the human has rage
the human wants justice
not important
we built laws for that

the sun is wintering
the sun is springing
the sun is summering
not important
we built houses for that

the human is late
the human is earlier
the human is sporadic and enjoys surprises
not important
we built calendars for that

the human is unmotivated
the human is creative
the human has great potential
not important
we built education for that

the human is unpredictable
the human is beautiful
the human is fragile
not important
we built prisons for that

the human lives
the human dies
the gravedigger dies
not important
we built robots to bury us

B is for Breathing

If you merely become the inversion of what you oppose, every other day you will find yourself in a battle with yesterday and tomorrow.

Magic understood is magic misunderstood.

Both evolution and revolution require that we be naked. To build up to the real revolution we need an undress rehearsal.

Compounding disinterest—we are disinterested in our very disinterest.

If you could but taste the dreams on which we chew, you would discover how hungry you are.

An education that liberates the mind but confines the body is the miseducation that one ought not long for.

It is said that it is better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all, but to keep loving and losing and loving and losing—such pain can only be the result of our globalized world.

A war of many enemies hidden even from the enemies.

Being in an ecosystem we need each other, and when one of us goes missing we truly realize we need EACH other.

Under the state, hell can feel but an understatement. The great tease and misuse of the word freedom that one in a cage must endure…

To not salivate in the mouths of others is tasteless.

A domesticated animal is not afforded the luxury of having a will. It must overcome the paradox and find the will to find a will. If not, it’s will is written by another, for another.

Instead of lobbying them with money and energy, let’s lobby ourselves with food for energy; we will then find our need of them unfounded.

And now the wretched is the Earth.

An ideology that keeps you away from others is an ideology to keep away from.

I was born a libertarian socialist without having the words for it, and hopefully I might die a libertarian socialist without needing the words for it.

If you hide your true self in fear of being disappeared, such is your fate.

Permission is a taxing load that more often than not sinks a mission.

A disease thrives the most right before it dies along with its host. Don’t let the demographer fool you with a misleading charting of the future.

I appreciate your solutions, but there is no problem here. Perhaps the problem is in your mind.

Words that are hard to come by are words not easily forgotten.

Focus on solutions, and the problems will lose focus on you.

Without its own food, your movement will cease to move.

Every time I see a fashion model walking my way, I walk to runaway.

Run too fast and you make yourself the hunted.

There is nothing as outlandish as… a modern human!

Hell is the vacillation between boredom and malevolence. It matters not if one is the subjector or subjected.

Wear the 50,000 year lens—see the roots of oppression and not just the base of its recent branches and outgrowths.

When you dance with the devil, you dance alone.

It took the Romans over a century to realize they had killed a god; I ask how long will it take for us to realize we are killing ourselves?

Everlasting life won’t save you from your fears. You will just move from being mortally afraid of death to immortally afraid of death.

The proof that the old are useless, is that the young are useless. Wisdom has vanished, and all time has given is a wrinkle.

The better you chew your food, the more it will stay your food.

Your words tell us we are invisible but the music tells us we are invincible; the choice is easy.

Oh how different naked and empty are.

To move unopposed is not a movement.

Either the youth conquer, or death conquers—for that is what the undying aged have made themselves.

To share yourself is to leave yourself.

Only one side can triump—the other side is the lack of triump, and brings death.

“and down into the Land of Shadow”
