    Karma is not a B*tch; She is Mother Nature… 

    I made the coffee too strong, and got too excited, so I spilled it accidentally, and now everything’s fine–Life 492…

    That is a simple enough little ditty, now, isn’t it? On one level it’s just a description of another manic Monday living in the USA, down in jungle land, for what it’s worth. And on another level it’s a brief glimpse into the horrors of the caffeine addiction to which I’ve relapsed after successfully divorcing myself from that horrible fate—or so I thought. And on an even different level it’s a description of life itself, as the joking attribution suggests.

    But on a higher level it also says something about Karma, not the Karma of retribution that speaks to the need of some religions for punishment, if not by some God, then by some force, or doctrine. For isn’t monotheism really the replacement of deities by doctrine, so more than the reduction in godheads, really more of an increase in letterheads? And it’s not a Karma of simple cause and effect, which is really more like a business transaction than a connection with a higher force.

    (More …)

    News Flash from the Conspiracy Channel 

    Isis execution

    Isis execution

    Conspiracy TV has announced that it plans, in a rare show of support, to renew the contract for “ISIS: We’re Desert Rats, not Democrats” in its prime-time reality TV slot for two years, instead of the usual one year, according to CEO Rupert Crotchrot. “We’re very excited about the potential of this series,” explains Crotchrot, adding, “good head-loppers are hard to find. We had high hopes for the Mexican cartels, but the back-story just wasn’t there. Heads hanging from a bridge are fine, as long as you know WHY they’re hanging from that particular bridge.”

    ISIS, the shadowy terrorist group that has captured much of the Syrian and Iraqi deserts, emerged from relative obscurity earlier this year to capture the world’s imagination and restore a sense of awe to an otherwise ‘been there, done that’ world. There is wide hope that they will do much to restore otherwise moribund defense spending and jump-start economies still reeling from six years of economic recession. No one will confirm it, but apparently there are plans to expand the action to other locations as quickly as they can be found. But that’s just the rumor. No one’s talking.

    ISIS: …Desert Rats…” will have its work cut out for it, what with new competition from the new reality TV series “Ebola: Out of the Cave, Part II” now scheduled in the same time slot on a competing channel. I know you’re as excited as I am. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how this all plays out. On a sadder note, “Border Kids: the Wonder Years” has been canceled, effective immediately. Hey, they had a good run. That’s entertainment. Stay tuned for politics.

    (This intended as a work of satire, of conspiracy theories, military spending and the mass media. I have nothing but sympathy for all victims on all sides of all Mideast conflicts)

    When the WTC towers fell a number was done on the American psyche. 

    At first I thought it was an attack on the American economy, as symbolized by the WTC itself. Admittedly a fifty-percent drop in stock prices would signal a whole new era in capitalism, or lack thereof, but that was not the most immediate effect. The most immediate effect was the splintering of the American psyche into a thousand tiny pieces, as if it weren’t ‘pluralistic’ enough already. Slowly the pieces polarize into those who see a declaration of war for a new crusade and those who figure that if we Americans didn’t instigate the attack ourselves, then at least we deserved it, or should accept responsibility for it. Out of the ashes of skyscrapers rises the phoenix of conspiracy, in which we’re all pawns in a game rigged by ‘them’, the unnamed masters of war and money. This is the world I know, planes crashing and towers falling. The Twin Towers fell like so many artificially inflated erections caught in a lie. They’ll all fall one day.

    Democracy comes to a sad end, drowned in the fog of conspiracy, 

    millions of highly trained but idle minds second-guessing the minutiae of history rather than getting lives of their own. You can’t reason with them, even though their arguments are based on reason. The problem is that their arguments are based solely upon reason, blind logic the dead reckoning by which the argument proceeds and goes anywhere they want. People don’t examine the facts anymore; they examine their feelings. Everybody wants to be first on his block to unlock the secrets of the world, but alas, very few actually can. Conspiracy exists much more in the minds of its disciples than the supposed conspirators.

    Ego is much more of a problem in modern society than conspiracy. 

    Genius exists in the world, thank God. You’re welcome. Nobody did Einstein’s work for him, even though his circumstances were humble. If it’s getting harder to become famous, that’s only because there’s so much talent in the modern world and so much specialization that it’s hard for any one single person to have broad up-to-date generalized knowledge, much less stand out from the crowd, except possibly as an entertainer. What does that tell you? Bring on the clowns. Evolution, whether biological nor cultural, is not a straight simple path. Ego needs nothingness the same way Christianity needs Buddhism.
