i'm so dazed and confused it's getting to be the status quo. i've been on a 30 day run reorganizing the cave, tied to 3 computers i want to use files from, learning too many new software applications, not eating right, and no walks to lighten up.

the two tiered culture we have bumbled into is hopeless: the populist right is not wrong, and the "progressives" are oriented totally backwards, emulating the past institutions that are no longer functional. the political and economic institutions of the nation states hold on to the status quo with a vengeance, and the giant mega-persons (corporations) are colliding giants while underneath their klanking the experience of personal life dries up to machine-like interchanges of talking points.

is this cultural and personal evolution? yes. does that mean there is progress towards a teleological better world? no. evolution creates a plethora of possibilities, and some are dead ends.

the personal face to face sharing of experiences is the only thing that might redirect culture away from the insane and pathological. have you had any lately?

Psilocybin and the Concept of Natural Intelligence | Reality Sandwich: "In ascribing intelligence to the technological achievements of bio-logic, I should here point out that this does not necessarily mean that Nature is consciously intelligent (although Nature might well have mind-like characteristics), but rather that intelligence represents a particular kind of process, or capacity, that can manifest in realms other than the human brain/mind."

The Official Website of Andrew Vachss : The Zero 5.0laf

The Official Website of Andrew Vachss : The Zero 5.0laf

another day another cryptogram.

i'm reading haiku by vachss. short little book by a master nyc noir mystery author.

in this book there are some absolutely magical poetic sentences that i run across, they are really too much. i'll see if i can find one:

"in our world, contradictions are not confronted but absorbed."

not talking here about the world, but the gestalt of a small band of characters who inhabit it in an unusual way.

beautiful day, finally got a walk in. went downtown and walked a couple of hours, a little shopping. it's been so long since i've visited downtown, a lot of new places, faces, spaces. i think i'll do it more often.

In the Beginning: The Birth of a Psychedelic Culture | Reality Sandwich: "Those who still live are all now older and wiser than we were in those literally heady days, and we may finally be ready to tell such truths without setting off another round of conflict."

as our lives, language and world disappear into some weird concoction of disneyland and non-personal ideation, see if you recall the sensation of standing on the earth and feeling that you belonged there.

had a day yesterday when either i or the stars were wrong. everything i touched fell apart. i was lost in the wilds of bits and bytes that morphed and slid in every way. made me mad i'm sorry to report. actually i'm not sorry. it was the way it was.

just saw avatar 3D which makes my yearly movie. i liked it. parts were very twiggy and barky, the organic messy fractal world of nature's heart, parts very hiTek with the best military money can buy - you know, good guys and bad guys - henri rousseau - beautifully executed if a little corny, think action movie. words like "corporate" and "insane" used. all the characters were prefab like tv, cartoons of attitudes we all know. but as a marker of presnt world, hard to beat even with or maybe because of being so generic.

not to even mention the 3d where they had a lot of un and so did i.
