When not speaking to friends in parables about solutions to the emptiness a=
nd spiritual death created by modern mainstream society, I speak thoughtful=
ly about diverse topics related to the quest to uncover and share meaning i=
n life. Through honest exploration and confrontation with our thoughts and =
feelings, we can overcome the pervasive confusion and doubt that threatens =
to suffocate our hope at every turn.

Re: Jesus.com


Hi Max,

Amazing stuff eh!

Marc

As the emperor discovered, the mob is fickle and its base tastes revolve =
around not honor but on who can best entertain it. Though the mob has great=
size, its lack of ideology and honor also means that it lacks value and th=
e ability to achieve anything substantial. It is surely large, but remains =
powerless in all meaningful ways. That idea is contrasted in the movie by a=
n army of men who believe in their leader because of his honor and vision. =
Though their numbers are far smaller than the mass, their unified values ar=
e able to achieve a positive result. No one in the mob cares for anything a=
nd none would risk their life or anything at all because they desire only t=
he safe path of nothingness. Aspiration is not in them - only the noble dre=
am and seek to make dreams come true, for dreams and value are every time w=
orth risking the whole of one's existence. If one is! victorious, he has wo=
n great value, or if he has lost, he at least has the respect of those who =
understand that the pursuit of value was worth dying for. Life without hono=
r and value, as symbolized by the mob and their approach, is meaningless. V=
aliant struggle to preserve the value of nobility will always be glorious b=
ecause it continues to keep alive the possibility of meaning in this world,=
against all of those who would so quickly forsake it.

I like how this guy uses messianic talk about money and hierarchy and all=
. I think Jesus was in fact talking a good part of the time about Empire a=
nd Capital. So he beat Marx and Negri to the combo? I wouldn't be surpris=
ed.

God that Gilder article was good. Morbid and solipsist reading but sorta=
vivid.

And yes, Jesus does talk about bread and circuses! Labor and entertainme=
nt. What a weird site.

Re: backward engineering


Hi there Andres,

Your worries about bad companies, governments exploiting DNA as an open
source code, I believe is a very valid question. One only has to look at the
companies that have already ruined living eco environments constantly for
profit, global control. And they do not seem that bothered, other than as a
marketing ploy to genuinely deal with such issues. Oil companies have
eagerly killed people for profit. Plus with the manic effort of many neo -
liberal cultures, companies to take away the civil right of personal
privacy, how can we trust our governments to protect us? We cannot. They
displayed no interest in respecting life other than for use as a commodity.
Humanity is worth money, mass working units. Governments and the many
idiotic (mostly) males that have cruelly abused their power disappoint me
greatly - I do not trust them at all.
