How many circles can I lead myself in today
Before I have heard any birdsong;
With lightening speed: straight back into the loop
Likely, where I left off yesterday – oh wait! A new conudrum;
Im pretty good at this, this nothing, shame. Wasted efforts
And its not like I don’t know it.   

I don’t have to move a muscle for this; my head just whirrs away
Doing its thing. Me: motionless. Just let myself lie there and let it happen

Am I whirring about anything I can act upon? Of course not. That would be
Just normal; a balanced person; someone who has an identity, the sort you can
Rely upon. Not me, where is mine?

Who is this person staring back at me in the mirror? I ask myself this now;
I asked the boy of six, who stared back then: who is this unknown, ugly, unidentified
Figure standing there? That was twenty years ago, and I have no more answers to that
Now.

Superhuman
Comically looking people
Push my buttons
Like im a video game
Wolverine
Says fuck that shit
But Mario
Where is my princess?
Peaches ‘n cream
No time for that
Join the league
Fight the evil
Question my alliance
To make it stronger so
As chaos
Descends
Upon the head
Wait for a second
I think I got it!
Somebody wrote this
It’s all a story
So I can write
My own
I ride turtle shells
Into that shit
Only the best
Fiery flaming
Spiked unholy
Turtle shells
Spinning
Of course
Why stop there?

There are 3 guarantees in life....death, taxes, and Pater still posting on the UD boards. Glad to see someone is keeping this place alive.

St. Slugabed and the breakfast Vespers
Who got low-blowed the bolide,
And breathanarian get no early bird special

Who wait upon the alpenglow for respite,
Prelapsarian looper in no Patericon,
St. Slugabed in the breakfast Vespers

Sleep beneath the pulsars, oh epileptic!
Metrorrhagia mundane for his moon-woman
Breathanarian get no early bird special,

Who charivari with their clanging bedpan
Because it's time to shize n' rine!
St. Slugabed and the breakfast Vespers

With a pocketful of Osirus statuettes--
For no nightstand cairn, for a nocebo boner.
Breathanarian get no early bird special.

His intercession's in the ashen-light, no echelette,
Since the slacken hit snooze upon the rocketsonde--
St.  Slugabed and the breakfast Vespers
Breathanarian get no early bird special.

Roger from America came to Milton Keynes
with a wish to fulfil his dreams in education,
the Open University his aim. When interviewed
for a course on English he was asked
what he thought on names.

"Do you know what yours means",
a donnish man called Don said pointin' at 'im,
"I mean as in the vernacular of England?"

To which Roger replied, "I only roll my fame-by-name
right off my tongue with pride to females willing;
you bookish men are but social intercourse,
so I'm off to begin that other kind at source
with one of them." "Does that answer your question?"

We continue to evolve. If the Right seeks to destroy the empathetic memeplex built up in both secular and religious societies alike, to an extent, there will be trouble. It is seeking to change the economic environment, and therefore our immediate environment, to encourage aggressive yuppie types to become the dominant and successful members of the species.

I'm not sure who will win, but I'd prefer a stable society over a rat race life.


Interesting stuff with interesting references, Alex. I'll add a response to what you've said later.

As with yourself, right now I need to visit kipland. Thanks for your input/reply.

Peter...

Perhaps the Right, by your definition, seek to take us to more animalistic phase in our development, one which we have evolved beyond.

To put it in a brief but perhaps simplistic manner, the dangers of pure self-interest are known to us now - we can look at tales in mythology right up to the present day with the banking crisis (on the back of the Right's political rule). Empathy and Altruism are traits which are naturally selected in the evolutionary process, which this dog-eat-dog economics and general policy appears to ignore.

The Golden Rule, from which most moral teachings can be derived, manifests itself withing our species when one lowly homo-sapien thinks, to the effect of, "I wouldn't like it if I was hit with a boulder for little reason, I won't launch a surprise attack on Grom." Our empathetic spirit and his family are then not slaughtered in retribution for Grom's murder, their genes pass to the next generation and more importantly that empathetic meme also survives. The Golden Rule was one of the main foundations which allowed larger, stable and safe societies to form, therefore allowing those that possessed this meme of empathy and therefore lived in a safer environment to pass on their genes more successfully than those who did not.

This looks very interesting; I'll try and give it some thought and post something tomorrow. But now, sleep...


Right, Alex, when you're ready, fire away. Cheers.
