Something happening here…

For what it’s worth…

Song always rings in my mind.


The storm I’m in

quite a din

Clinging to myself

Grabbing for the shelf

Of memories, of thoughts

guess they’ve been bought?

Hard won,

hard earned

Now spurned

What to do, wtf

Makes me think

I’m no longer…

A duck


There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away…

I was listening to THE DAUGHTER it triggered Shame and embarrassment (particularly triggered outcomes of CP-RED)

White fragility—a whole other thing—is sweeping the nation’s bureaucracy…where as a white person, I have Colombian and Chinese genes back 14-17 generations…

What does that make me?

Those parts of myself that are both oppressed and the oppressor-Nietzsche would game that I supposed—I’m not sure which is the “super” part of me!

Reflecting on my thoughts and feelings and writing them is easier said than done.

So the point?

Of writing…

There is no question that we are conjuring 2nd tier and emerging manifestations of what progression looks, feels and tastes like…

Working the past couple of years on those 1st and 2nd memes and trying to understand them we have entered an age of the “discounting Of fact-based truths…”

I tried to find the actual quote, when I find it I’ll post it…


FS-GREEN is now generating the problems that 1st can’t solve, and…

This brings with it extreme danger to social order, civility and the fraying fabric of society that we have known.

The only thing I can say is that it will be different going forward—in large part—because we don’t have to potential to deal with the VUCA tbat is expanding at a far greater rate than our capacity.

Imagine the broad array of responses that have the potential to change the landscape we thought we knew.

If there are 2nd tier solutions some of them contain as much danger as they do safety.

Sometimes people light fires because they can’t see the forest for the trees—others watching resemble the largest response to fear-threat-embarrassment—nimby (not in my back yard)…

I go back to the EDGE OF TOMORROW quote:




PS: while graves never mentioned it, he must have known that trying to drive a square peg into a round hole was going to do significant mental damage to a large number of people…

While everything mentally disordering is accelerating now, you haven’t seen anything yet.
