On the Dwindling Flames of Prometheus' Fire

For f$&ks sake, Chuck Todd (and f$&king eevvveerrrryyyybody else holed up in the Beltway … none of you politics-as-usual f$&kers seem to understand the following point), Biden did not unite a coalition composed of all-of-the-f$&king-left and anti-Trump-conservatives. WE F$&KING… UNITED… OURSELVES… (f$&king rapidly I might add) when we suddenly found ourselves shoulder to shoulder standing upon what once was a solitary plane of reality now under assault from an unfamiliar foe firmly entrenched deep within the belly of a full-on-f$&king-fabricated reality … a reality jockeying for position as we race towards our mergeable moment (as sustaining two fully oppositional realities is a short term affair, one shall surely swallow up the other) … winner take all.

F$&k you all for not yet understanding the full weight of the moment.

F$&k you all for choosing to throw precedents at the unprecedented.

F$&k you all for letting our critical facilities lapse to the point of lethargy.

F$&k you all for not recognizing the damage all around you as that which a bifurcated information ecosystem has wrought upon a fragile society balanced upon the razor’s edge of its demographical tipping point.

F$&k you all for having the reach to truly help turn the tides in this War of the Bubbles and treating the web at your disposal … this network of consciousness, of community, of pooled intelligence and experience … treating it like a captive audience to be spun up with tribal gutturals into frenzied fanboys (and fangirls). So malnourished are your subjects. How long, now, have you sustained them solely on empty memes that do nothing to nurture those dwindling flames that remain of Prometheus’ fire.

On the Rise of the American Anti-Vaxxer

Anti-vaxxers (specifically the COVID variant), what the f$&k, am I right? With the litany of undesirable consequences we invite by allowing COVID to just flourish damn near unimpeded, conjuring an …

On Discrepant World-views and Problem Solving Efficacy (or On Dragons)

I have always been fascinated by the common thread stretched about humanity that links up our narratives. The similitude with which humanity engineers itself by independent means.
