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.

Salad Daze Archive Unit 13 (1997)


the mirrors are mine
in which lurk the enemy
here are your mad dogs aplenty
i am what everyone searches for
the angel of the next war

the swords sleep here
in this eager darkness shine clear
this is your final golden mine
i have what all are lusting for
the secret of a melting core

this breath is mine
in the moment that you forget it
here are years without names
i am the old law fresh renewed
the flames are my prelude

Salad Daze Archive Unit 12 (1996)

wiremom vs. softmom

this is the way we
slide the bolt slide the bolt
far over our heads
sold out for sale on sale sale ends soon
this is the way
we load the chamber load the chamber
do you get it
or just laugh in smug myopia
no-one gets a chance to
make a second impression
in this cage
still the other calls
this is not the way we

comoediae magnam postulate

That observed non-trivial violations of symmetry & of conservation can potentially serve as elements of a metageography for an esoteric & novel ecology we have yet to measure or observe.

Ratios of violation over time may be helpful if means exist to collect them.

The Political Economy Of Pain

Our main vehicle of survival is exactly what we instinctively dread & despise.

Alternativen-Dämmerung - Twilight Of The Alternatives

When adults pretend, very bad things can happen.
Decades of denial have now narrowed the track of history to an epic degree.

The dominant motif of humanity now is the Hail Mary football play.

The trope of ultimate extremity rules in a kaleidoscope of forms.

Fascism resurgent is the polity attempting to defend an economic order that long before 2008 was already demonstrably a morbid anachronism.

Rising psychopathy, pedophilia & narcissism are unconscious attempts at ad-hoc evolutionary solutions to an unsustainable consumerism that's spawning an ever-worsening toll of social & ecological disaster.

Actual evolutionary solutions to our worst threats exist & are not state secrets.
Being hostile to the status quo, their success is not a given.

The Great Weirding is nigh, the surreal historical crux when our collective inherent instability finally manifests itself to its full potential.
If you think the century was insane this far, this is when you need to strap in.

Reefer Madness Ahoy!

Ordered some no-longer-illicit weed from my benighted government this morning.
Brutal price - though to be fair some of that is shipping & tax.
Yet more proof the NDP has an absolute fetish for mimicking right-wing fecklessness: BC probably just blew a literal fortune by only having a single store - in Kamloops - open on Day One.

Better ridiculously late than never, eh?

Burn Baby Burn ... one bowl at a time.

Cosmological Holography Conjecture

As modeled in their holographic principle by 't Hooft & Susskind. the universe is a lower-dimensional membrane projecting the physical "3-D" universe we know & love ... but we also know that this "3-D" universe is expanding at an accelerating rate over time. While Dark Matter has already been indirectly observed, the fundamental nature of "Dark Energy" has yet to be determined.

Perhaps black holes are the answer. Much to-do is made of the fact that they seem to violate conservation of information - but even that problem may pale next to their apparent ability to annihilate the very dimensionality of matter that they consume (assuming that their cores are true singularities). If seen as information, then surely dimensionality too must be conserved (with apologies to cartoons & grapheme) - a basic truism which fails in the case of black holes, with no dimensional analogue to Hawking Radiation to account for its absence.

The singularities at the center of black holes may be dimensional quantum pipelines to the cosmic membrane described in the holographic principle, forcing it to expand faster - & inflate the universe faster - with every new supernova that ends with a black hole. If true, the logical corollary is that cosmic inflation will continue to accelerate until the universe can no longer generate any more stars heavy enough to spawn new black holes.

The Patience-Convenience Axis

This alliance seems paradoxical because constant convenience can act psychologically to reduce individual patience. Likewise patience can be vital in enduring a loss of convenience.

But when a society opts to expend & enhance its collective patience to abide ills that also enhance or maintain convenience, they go from antithetical to symbiotic - & those ills are one giant step closer to becoming mandatory. Patience gone from virtue to weapon & convenience devolved from comforting time-hack to delivery system for social atrophy via monoculturing.

The Kamikazetariat

As a long-period resonating culture, the Kamikazetariat seems novel & sui generis every time it recurs. The mechanism of its emergence is a net abundance sufficient to sustain & tolerate the toxic luxury of ego categorically overruling reason to the point of collective self-destruction. Once such a society's operating paradigm becomes sufficiently morbidly divorced from reality its rise becomes virtually automatic as both a psychic firewall against anomie & as a focal point of unity, comfort & pride.

Its core dogma, whether its garb be religious or secular, is mysticism fixated on an apocalypse-utopia narrative ... betting the proverbial mortgage & first-born on the ultimate mulligan: that all that messy icky physics & history can be literally wished away. Sufficiently mindless & heroic spectacles of power, violence & epic waste will compel reality itself to obey the faith so that it too can become another of the Kamikazetariat's adoring slaves.

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” 

What are actually created are prefab disasters intended to reap dividends for the usual suspects via the ever-popular yearning to evade unwanted reality, which are then enforced ever more vigorously the worse they malfunction. Obviously every new failure is due to a deficit of zeal or blood-lust on the part of the glorious elite - their sacred Ragnarok can only be betrayed or perverted by nefarious infidels, as it is incapable of failing by definition.

One way or another, every Kamikazetariat always self-aborts. Not hard to understand why there would be a perennial collective blind-spot for a deviant culture too loathsome to cherish & too suicidal to persist.

Business Plot Two Point Oh {Beta}: RISE & FALL OF THE DERP REICH

Any fascist regime deficient in either the means, the will, or the aptitude to censor, jail or terminate non-compliant members of the press & judiciary is doomed to fail.

Quantum Gravity Synthesis Exclusion Conjecture

That an apt & predictive theory for phenomena described as resulting from Quantum Gravity requires a third theoretical model - separate from either Quantum Theory or Relativity - due to the scale of discretion between both theories, which may be predicted to be beyond functional synthesis due to the fundamentally unique properties of gravity.

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.
