There are always things beyond the intelligible boundaries of the cognitive logic and cultural grammars within which we live.
The catastrophic entropy of a currently most-probable future is not the only available solution in the possibility-space of all emergent and adaptive human planetary civilisations.
Death is productive in ways that might never be comfortably acknowledged.
One thing I notice about getting older is the way that things start to get away from you...
Broken things and imperfect people are often far more interesting than are complete and whole ones...
Conflict and the means or methods of its execution lie at the center of all personal and (by extension or necessary inversion) collective history.
Coming conflicts will be won by those who can most effectively, efficiently, continuously and adaptively rebuild themselves and their ways of life through successful negotiation and engagement with the recombinatory logical evolution of information and energy from which biology, humanity, technology and civilisation have emerged.
Facebook has a genocide problem.
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.
The underlying momentum of evolving material logics, symmetries and information systems seem already oriented towards incurring dissonance, difference and entropy as an autonomous method through which their own accelerated logical metamorphosis self-propagates.
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.
Unconscious and unacknowledged, the true power of narrative lies in the self-propagating autonomy it expresses - above and beyond any putative human control. We do not own the stories and meanings through which we live so much as they own us but an essential dissimulation of reflexive psychological self-definition endlessly fails, and is foundationally unable, to recognise this fallacy.
