The question

Everything that exists has a specific nature, each entity exists as something in particular and has characteristics that are part of what it is, A is A…

It’s been said of Oscar Wilde that as he became older, his reputation for laconic wit bore such prominence, that he could only speak in epigrams. Imagine how excruciating that must’ve been for those forced to endure it for any length of time, sure five minutes of it would’ve been okay but suppose you were sat next to the man at a dinner engagement.

‘What do you think of the parsnips Oscar?’.

‘There’s only one thing worse than eating these parsnips…’.

See what I mean? So normal folk, I mean those without some imperative to preserve or extend a reputation for pithy observations, don’t talk like that do they. So why is it exactly that so much of what we’re supposed to believe from the media, is normally expressed solely in condensed form, with slogans, phrases intended to encapsulate broad concepts and vague analogies?

The wonderful thing

‘That’s it, that’s all there is to it?’.

‘Did I mention that the man and woman love each other very much?’.

‘Yeah—I was meaning to ask you about that, this “love each other very much” deal, how does that apply to you and mother?’.

‘…’

‘…it’s complicated’.

‘I’m sorry but this doesn’t sound complicated to me at all, In fact I’m starting to wonder just how the population is kept at manageable levels’.

‘You sound awfully mature for an eight year old’.

‘Call it artistic licence, anyway how come there are so few kids about then?’

‘Um well, this “wonderful thing” that happens, it’s not something you’re supposed to do with too many people or too often’.

‘Why not if it’s so wonderful and what’s wrong exactly, with loving too many people very much?’.

‘…’

‘…it’s complicated’.

 

 

Physics is not compatible with mysticism

Physics is not compatible with mysticism I’m afraid, it’s sad but that’s the truth. The uncertainty principle, despite the equivocation you’ve been exposed to, is not a window into a metaphysical domain but an artefact of mathematics. It’s intrinsic to the process of spatial transformation, often referred to as Fourier transforms for that extra bit of obfuscation.

Remember Russell Brand?

What’s a shilling worth?

A poem by DeadSpiderEye

Who here remembers the man Russell Brand,
whose bung stopped many a wet dripping hole?
No not a plumber with grips made by mole,
more akin to something from the Glitter Band.
Although not seen in suits sewn by hand,
it’s hard to not think of Savile’s role,
when such talent sublimes the greasy pole.
In a way, not unlike a Miliband.

Then wrote that book, or was it Owen,
don’t vote was the wisdom he were knowin’.
Then to the ring, his hat he did throw in,
It’s labour that you want to go win.
It all made his little head start throbbin’,
so it’s said that he went back to knobbin’.

Can you believe there’s a huge ball of rock in the sky?

Just blows my mind every time I think about it.
