My wife is the reigning compost-queen. She makes masses of compost each year.
The really interesting thing about the process, is that you don't need worms: they simply appear, en-masse, out of thin air. Millions of writhing red wigglies. I have no idea where they come from, and it seems nobody else does, either.

All this anal abstract analysis takes away from the actual event.
The actual event is very, very, very, very, very, very, seriously baaaaad.
Anything that distracts from full appreciation of that is simply further collateral damage.
There is, quite simply, zero justification, ever, for murdering unsuspecting bystanders.

The fact that the whole Western world is completely screwed-up is a whole other issue.

Interzone / Re: Senses
« on: April 23, 2013, 12:09:57 AM »
While I'm walking in the forest, I've noticed that my senses seem to expand. I have a 360 degree sphere of perception rather than noticing only what's in front of me. (Hearing especially. it's amazing how much sound I block out during the day.)
Does technology induce stupor? If we paid full attention to our surroundings would we go crazy?
 

Would we go crazy? No. I haven't. But some could, quite easily.
The 360 degrees you mention identifies you as one who has awareness. Most have senses that stop a foot in front and at the side limits of their peripheral vision.
That 360 awareness is actually limitless, once you accept that it is.
My ears are dangerously sensitive, when I'm around cities.

Ah. The Comet returns, shedding particles of sense, as it goes :)

Today I am 60.

Happy birthday. Every one is good, as long as they last...

Thank you.
Yes, they are all good, once you abandon the idea of paying any attention to them.
I had to be reminded of it, by my wife :)

There may be better uses for your time.
You know you're on the right track when people start calling you a magician.
I once planted a lawn in Lafayette, Ca. after installing a sprinkler system for a doctor.
The grass was pushing through in twenty minutes.
The look on his face was memorable.

Can you handle real challenge?
Like overcoming an immense ego and accomplishing something useful?
Of course, you'd need to have some idea of what ego is, along with what useful might mean.
Have you accomplished anything of real value in your life?
Of course, you'd need to first establish what constitutes value.
Etc...

Just some food for thought, though Crow. You generally sound like the most self-righteous person on these forums. Like you know something other people don't (your 'tao'), and like you are 'above' rationally examining various aspects of reality with objective, orthodox tools (reason, logic).


Do not insult me again.
Whatever I may 'sound like' to you, or anyone, is exactly that.
The one thing that never occurs to people who say such things, is that I may actually know what I am talking about.
As I mentioned, recently: artificials have no apparatus by which to identify what is real.

Neutrality is all. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
You ever see that movie First Knight?
How could Lancelot be so good? Somebody thought to ask him...
"You have to not care if you live or die".

There is limitless power in that.

I don't hate those murdering scum. I don't hate you. I don't hate, period.
I do get very, very angry, when anger serves. I decide. I act. I retire when the deed is done. I sleep.

This is why Christianity is becoming extinct.
If any religion ever had a fatal flaw, it was "Love thine enemy".

Leftists see so little value in life that they prefer to become artificial life.
They have dispensed with God, along with anything that gives life meaning or purpose.
Unable to see anything but themselves in human form, all they see is humans.
As if nothing else existed, or had any value.

They are a virus on the earth, engulfing every living thing, and sucking the life from it.

I am a quantum particle:
I wear a body, but I am not that body.
I have a mind, but I am not that mind.
I am a quantum particle.
Infinitely small. Infinitely powerful. Infinite.
I am this way, because I must be. All living things know it, and gather to me.
Only the non-living - the artificial - do not.

I will fight those non-living artificials for as long as my body endures, because life is battle.
This is good and right. The cosmos is a violent and relentless place. It is what it is.
I am a protector of all living things, as all living things protect me.
Life is the vessel of unlimited potential. It is all and everything.

Like all quantum particles, I am this, I am that, and everything else too, in every state, at any time.
That is what I am.

What are you?

Artificial. Does that suggest anything to you?
That's the whole nature of the beast we face.
Leftism is artificial and all its adherents, too.
I am not artificial.
I become annoyed at artificials holding forth about their supposed superiority.
There is nothing superior about anything artificial.
Because it is artificial.
And that, in a nutshell, is beyond the capability of anything artificial, to understand.

This whole site, as I see it, is about witless beings seeking to become uber-men.
Is that the case?
Or is it really about becoming artificial copies of uber-men?

What you call logic is no such thing.
And even if it was, so what?
Logic is for computers.
Logic is incapable of thought, only binary processing.
Reason is different, and requires the ability to think.
I use neither, if I can avoid it, because I have discovered them to be pedestrian.
That is why I can't be bothered conversing with you very often, let alone caring about killing you.
You do nobody any favors here, you know, now that your two main fans have been canned.
So settle down.

Winding-back is automatic when the resources run out.
Leftism = unable to understand that simple fact.

So what do we have here..?
"Liberalism causes terrorism":
We have a liberal claiming that if someone blew a bunch of people up in his own town, he would pay no attention to the terrorists, but to the society he holds responsible for their terrorism.
Thus signalling to the terrorists that they can blow up whoever they want, because:
1: It isn't their fault, and...
2: There will be no unpleasant consequences, for them.

It's no wonder I can't bear to spend any of my time either discussing or debating anything with leftists.
