gaia's voluptuous anvil = A Dash Of Tuesday Whimsy

Using brute logic, I arbitrarily changed the blog's name so as to bring it more in accordance with the morbid-yet-playful text that I have next to my icon thingy.

Note that said icon thingy was - & some might argue still is & always has been - my true motivation for this blog ... because I disliked seeing a generic default blob beside my comments.

Now this blog is named after my 1990s radio show, the crusty vehicle of yore via which I exposed entire scores of Lotuslanders & sundry BCians/N.Washingtonians to the likes of Evil Twang, nomeansno, Terror Of Tiny Town, ten days late, Wretched Ethyl, Little Fyodor, cranes, Frank Zappa, Throbbing Gristle, perfume tree, ZILLATRON, Tankhog, Mudhoney, The Monoxides, Dayglo Abortions, Nina Hagen, Submission Hold, Aging Youth Gang, The Residents, Einsturzende Neubauten, DSK & whatever else I could get my little tentacles on through the wee hours.

global anarcho-nihilism Ahoy?

2016 = The Year Of Full Metal Emo 

2017 = The Year Of Shit Getting Much Too Real

Note how the former directly spawns the latter.

Today - January 9th - Reykjavik is above the freezing point.

Renowned recent acts of ritualistic mass civic suicide (America's 2016 election & Brexit) may very well be direct psychological results of the ongoing saga of latent raw menace that is anthropogenic climate change.

As news pertaining to it becomes increasingly terrifying the more it is researched, a psychic tipping point is reached beyond which the default response is ambivalence.

TRUISM / SPOILER: This ambivalence is destined to invert/evaporate wherever Gaia's ungentle version of karma makes either avoidance or denial physically impossible.

Some victims just want to watch the System burn.

gaia's voluptuous anvil twopointoh - Gratuitous Taxonomic Disambiguation

PLOT WARP: I am not a subscriber to Lovelock's Gaian model of either Terra or its biosphere.

To me the phrase by which my silly wee weblog is yclept is mythopoetically suggestive of the very awesome & upsetting range of implications derived by combining even grade-school math & junior-high science with the cybernetic avalanche of modern history to produce logical fundamental predictions.

Gaia's anvil is voluptuous because most of life defaults to the erotic when left to its own devices, just as sexually reproducing critters should - but it is a vast cold anvil nonetheless: natural brutality can be as epic as it is mindless.

Humanity's scope of choice/influence herein is still a live topic of controversy, which sadly increasingly can no longer be said for the escalating results of previous & current choices/influences.

Salad Daze Archive Unit 11 (1994)

the sound the file made

as its smiling teeth
bit through dull metal was
the song of freedom made flesh
for an anonymous joyful slave
the tiny chips falling
were far prettier than stars
as they flew in time to
the poem entitled action

timewar crux

Humanity's perennial conflict with its own time constraints is now in a state of global crisis. The lethal anachronism of nuclear weapons is alive & well in our polity, & our sustained ecological criminal negligence has now put us on a par with the space debris that ended the age of dinosaurs. Innovations which can liberate time & opportunities seem all too often instead to remove them, at exactly the historical moment that can most ill afford their absence.

Time liberation will likely determine how much farther the weird beauty of the human project has left to advance.

Society's Psychosexual Economy of Values, Loud & Clear

{ wherein is unveiled the tragic corollary to our epic yearly ritual of mysterious fickle weaponised pterodactyloid infants randomly launching missiles enriched with limbic venom, hermaphroditic genital icons thinly disguised as viscera, & wanton mass vegetable castration - not to mention long walks in the moonlight }

Wars get solemn reverence, a public ceremony & an official holiday.
Love gets a mass-marketing campaign.

Corporate Skullduggery All Up In My Face Ahoy!

Leap Day marks me losing the work site I've had since May 2003.

Client kept dividends rising - even through the long grim dead-zone of 2009 & 2010 - but their shares have suddenly been nuked in 2016.

This cat would've made a better CEO.

Next posting I get could be better, could be fuglier ... "STAY ATTUNED!"

Son of Revenge of Nontrivial Pursuit Strikes Back

Can subcultures now emergent on behalf of a panarcho-eroticist dissident evolution of polity prevail against the need of dominant culture to trivialize & neutralize it?

Situational Chagrin Ahoy!

I let the Abyss look into me all the way ... & now I fear the Abyss will have nothing but nightmares whenever she dares slumber, the poor dear thing.

The Beautiful Echoes of Our Dead Eon of Gnosis

The most epic sea changes in human history may have been not the rise of urbanization or industrialization, but the point at which our cultures went from dictating our potential collective future to chasing after it -- & the point past which no individual could be a comprehensively successful polymath.

Wave-Function Conjecture

That given sufficient quantum instability, in an extremely primordial or degenerate universe wave-functions may collapse in such a way as to tunnel or jump past the event region, thereby transiting into a state of antiprobability.

(Note that in this state they would not have a negative probability, as certain quasiprobability distributions are said to have, nor any other anomalous probability value such as a variable. They would thus exist in a very exotic state indeed, since they could neither be concrete [probability =1] nor impossible [probability =0], nor could they exhibit any level of probability in between.)

A hint! A most palpable hint!

In highly discrete cultures like Parliament or Scientology or professional sports or Wall Street which produce/enforce artificial dementia, specific in-group idioms appear, & from these all such cultures appear able to exchange terminology, memes & tropes seamlessly.

Different clowns, one circus?

Not All Paradoxes Are Created Equal

Fermi's Paradox is mythological: the predicate requiring any hyper-intelligent aliens to opt for expansion toward a galactic empire is dubious at best. On the contrary, opting for & maintaining long-term cultural equilibrium in terms of habitat, energy & resource consumption may be an essential precondition to achieving high-order sentience.

Another Heritage Moment Ahoy!

Nothing puts the lie to the hubristic trope of an innately curious humanity quite like the contemplation of how much of human history has been an epic, continuous & brutal war on askers of uncomfortable questions.

A Midsummer Night's Nerdrage

The Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms dictate primitivism in discourse regarding sets.
