Conflict and the means or methods of its execution lie at the center of all personal and (by extension or necessary inversion) collective history.
The dissonance of difference serves useful purposes for the continuity of cultural sytems.
At the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, it is a good time to reflect upon where we are all going as a civilisation and what we might plausibly achieve to inhibit, interdict or halt the possibility of any similar global catastrophes from ever occurring again.
Only the logic of technology wins war and war is indeed the one place that accelerated technological evolution is guaranteed. All of which leads us to a probable inevitability of conflict, written deeply into nature of information systems and logic.
Good fortune or success may be more often a matter of statistical probability than of human intention or intervention.
Does human stupidity actually serve a sociological purpose ?
Humanity spends far too much time bickering and fighting over how we will collectively move forward to ever actually get on with the very serious business of actually ensuring our own continuity, survival and ongoing tenure on this planet.
Just as there may never be any isolated closure and teleological endpoint to logic, physics and mathematics - there can also never be any such thing as the "one true way" or ideological and social perfection. There are only successive approximations and iterative algorithmic refinements towards a better world, without end.
Where intellectual or ethical bankruptcy is the pivot upon which any untenable political assertion or associated narrative rests, an overinvestment in faulty reasoning becomes something of an inevitability.
We can't have peace because we are unable to precisely and concisely define and sustain the conditions of assurance, continuity and coherence which could provide that peace within a contemporary, shared conceptual framework...
In the sphere of information replication and mass communication, those messages which most succinctly and concisely convey meaning tend to be those which are most successful in self-propagation, regardless of the relationship of those messages to truth or fact.
Stepping off from a clockwork world of linear dynamics and a simple algebra of actors, effects and geopolitical stages into a new conceptual vocabulary of complex and multidimensional, plastic spaces and warping logical dimensions...
