Beauty is a Joy and a Forgetting

Beauty is such a strange sadness to a wise beholder. Truth, wrapped in youth like those blossoms that in aging inadvertently aspire to become the hollow frames or elder coccoons to which their own pattern or tapestry in time must trace an inevitable descent and unforgiving trajectory. We celebrate the flower, the spring growth and…

We lonely atoms…

...and these, all of these bodies, these artefacts and inscriptions that were once dust will once again be dust. These that were once lonely atoms drifting in all of cosmic space and time will once again be set free to wander. Many, many trillions of years from now even atoms will devolve into a slowly-dissasembling…

Peace is an Unprovable Theorem of Logic

The conspicuous absence of Global Unity and Peace is a function of the subtle logical fact that a whole system can only ever manifest as an inverse, recursive absence within itself and this, like Love and any other enigmatic mystery of human experience you care to mention, is an unprovable theorem of logic.

Decentralised psychological subjectivity and cultural presence is one in which adversarial competition is dissolved as there is no foundational differentiation between persons, property or places.Utopias,…

We find ourselves serendipitously located at a point of resonance or systemic sweet spot of scale and complexity at which sentience and intelligence has invoked…

Ouroboros

The logical necessity of recursively enigmatic self-propagation remains mysterious and somehow also essential for life and sentience.

Desire and Fear

We are bound by fear to our Objects and fantasies of Other and Self as much as by desire and there is a complex logical undercurrent and rationale to the ways that we (enigmatically) encrypt aversion into attraction and revulsion or death into fertility and life.
