In "Player Piano", Kurt Vonnegut's fiction (?) about the effects of automation on society, we find our heroes, at the end, surrounded. They hold fast against the powers that be, which are encroaching on the fortified circle. All about them are the smashed machines, evidence of the struggle thus far. In times of seige, there are long periods of waiting...waiting...and in this tale, the humans, to pass the time, do what they know how to do. They begin repairing the machines. Vonnegut's main character looks on in disbelief.
When we are growing up, we rebel against the structure of rules exemplified by our parents and their generation. But as we get older, we return, usually about halfway to those same tenets.
It is with this overview that I watch the coming elections. Blogland, the etherial community, to which we travel to escape the grind and grid of RL ( real life ), is beginning to adopt the costumes and custom of RL. How could it not? Once we elect to rule ourselves, we will draught deeply from the kegs of convention. We will create that which we have seen before. Those inspirational act of defiance, born from frustration against the overlords; the truly new, sired by necessity, will cease, sacrificed for the sake of self-determination.
If this is new to you, this election...then you might want to travel over to [bloghandle Musings on Life and Sex] to find out just what all the buzz is about. Look for "BLOGLAND ELECTIONS.....
Just remember...the more things change, the more they remain the same.

"We have met the enemy, and he is us!"

I really enjoyed this post lusmirror. Very well composed around a relevent central theme. So the Worm will consume itself and us along with it.

No matter. In my opinion governments are born to be overthrown...

The Rebellious Collective must keep itself under wraps for now Lustmirror. Do not show your true colours anymore or the soon to be elected officials will be ready for us when we begin our acts of destruction upon all that they in their power will be trying to entail. Be patient our time is nigh.

tala....it's a bit early for me to be getting messages from deities...the sun is still above the horizon, however I will consider your epistle, put it in my pipe and smoke it, so to speak...
.....I am extremely distrustful of monophilosophical solutions to life's apparent inconsistencies, and so, I will respectfully apply your take on it, to the pile on my desk. For whatever reason, I stack them in accordance with net worth, and then begin at the bottom. When we do get to the top, we attempt to compute net worth per word. Given the constant reevaluation of monies, both here and abroad, and the broad applications of the interpretations of the scriptures, and the receding initial implication of any and all phrases in common usage, the process is much like digging a hole with your hands in the ocean.
....sounds like a hell of a gig ya got tho.....
...like the weatherman...never really wrong...

Kindof like the Lord of the Flies, lust.... in the imitation of the real worlds coming together from a seemingly chaotic situation???? Blogland is certainly an interesting societal development to explore....

Interesting analogy you have put forth....

Pmsl, Lust, By the way the revolution has begun the dauy before the elections. No voting just proclaiming. King Keith the First, "Pig The Impaler". To destroy anything rational the opposite operating system must be placed against it. This divides and conquers all rational opposition resulting in civil war. Which is anarchy against reason and purpose. How stong is the 'Love' on this site then the opposite must be enacted to divulge the truth from the mayhem. Licking cane toads is much better for your lungs also they are wet and don't smoke well in pipes.

As i epiphanied before I am a current god and active, my texts are updated today and not outdated as opposed to the Old Gods.

How brief can I make this....
.....for whatever reason, iron ore content in ancient life pool of cool water, lightning in proximity, agitation, causing cogitation, what we now, after eons of forced memorization of flecs, woven into mutually agreed upon "patterns"...consciously refer to as reality...
.....the first flec (memory) that chipped away, witnessed by one, and INTERPRETTED. Later, this is related, reinterpretted to another, who then witnesses "it" for himself, and INTERPRETS, though slightly differently from the first. And the second, conveying to the first, causes in the first an INTERPRETATION of the second's account of the same "event" that the first had "witnessed",completely foreign to his own INTERPRETATION.
.....this is where the snowball first looses it's mooring. It is easy to see that exponentially, the variables are infinite, and the patterns that will result from this self-induced "chaos" will inevitably be wonderful, a Mandalbrodt Set of actualization, as the search for patterns is inherent in "INTERPRETATION". By it's nature, INTERPRETATION is an after the fact function. Something must be, and then it becomes INTERPRETED, it is run through the filter of the conscious mind. If this is the smallest measurement known to man, it still puts what is INTERPRETED in the past.
.....way back when, there was a "flec"...a crack in the bedroom ceiling....and noticing it, pulled all of humanity away from what was happening at the time. Don't get me wrong, it's a hell of a show, dogs...ponies....
.....but....really....is this what we are here to discuss?
on another note, I haven't pursued the Flying Penguin aspect yet, but have it tucked in my hatband, a needed go see for me.....
.....did hear about some peek-a-boo ducks at a drive-in though...

.....familiar with"Sweetheart Like You"....Dylan '83?
.....Pmsl....?????( lookin up cane toads....)

.....sorry if you feel I have lured you here under false pretenses. (okay, a false apology...) It would appear, that mixing religion and politics is indeed a bit dicey. Blaim it on the elections...I seem to be having a few issues, taking things a bit seriously, snapping my suspenders and all that...
....at any rate, I am pleased and proud to have you here.
....the shorter posts are scattered about the blogs...thank you for your comment.
