The Expansion Plateau

The Expansion Plateau

Once humanity has obtained post-biological evolution and the transcendent merger of reality and virtuality we lose the need to explore beyond a limited scope of redundancy. The expansion plateau. Humans need no more than 3 planets for the next 10,000 years.

The Journey

The Journey

It’s best not to know where you are going, then you will be surprised when you arrive.


Two Thousand and Fourteen

Two Thousand and Fourteen

In two thousand and fourteen we all traveled 93 million miles around our sun. This is the equivalent of circling the globe 3,735 times, or once every 2 hours and 21 minutes. If I am extremely lucky, I will only get to make that journey another 47 times. This report serves as a record of a single journey. It represents the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, the accomplished and the lost times of my year. I have not drawn conclusions here, I leave that to you. I have kept my conclusions for myself.

Without further delay, I present 8,760 hours of my life.

Dust on the Wind of the Cosmos

A GOD of humanity alone is a selfish thought. For we are inconsequential DUST in the storm of the ETERNITY, at the mercy of the wind of the UNIVERSE.

The Island of Monkey

The Island of Monkey

Monkey begins on the island. His Island.

From horizon to horizon the Monkey sees nothing but the oceans of water below and stars above. He is alone in his universe. The Monkey is given no how, no why, for the Island provides all that Monkey needs and Monkey does not need questions. There is shelter for the storm, fire for the cold, water for the thirst, and food for the hunger...

Regret

Regret

I buy books because I want to read more than I do,
write more than I have,
see more than I will,
and hear more than I can.
And yet I do not try.

Regret is a wasted life.
