    Buddhism 101, a Logarithm Grape-fruit: Sci-Fi and Religion, vices and verses… 

    People are desperate; people are starving; people line boulevards scrounging for crumbs and morsels; the homeless drift through the streets of nameless cities like zombies on life support, more and more keep coming and coming, without end middle or beginning, living in the moment like animals in search of pleasure and pasture; office workers adjust their ties and tie up their arms in expectation of junk, mail arriving from the four corners of the earth in bits and bytes, accounts payable and receivable in silver and slivers of pie-charts and Boolean logic…

    People perform sex acts on web-cams for pennies and tips, putting themselves into strange postures for the amusement of raucous crowds on opposite sides of interactive cameras, audiences and performers trading places in the name of mutual mastering and slaving—things once illegal: baiting, goading, pleading and ultimately pleasuring each other in temporary transitory sensations, tripping the light fantastic, skipping the light fandango; while people hurl insults at each other in Internet chat rooms; such is modern life in the Western lands and the cities of red nights… (More …)

Buddhism, huh, the xtians sure enough have good food that will not make you sick, after weds. services, at noon, people group up in small circles and testify, i mean in tongues. . r still growing thin and forgetful but we are fine, you, Tang? bi-polar, know that one. you are right, why not?

      Maybe too late for Buddhism to save us all from ourselves; my only concern at this point is survival of the species…

    Knockout Games: Sign of the times, just like “Clockwork…” 

    My increasing concern for the future of the human race (not the ‘planet’, mind you) is not based on Biblical revelations, millennial madness or general eschatological malaise. It’s based on a sober evaluation of the times in which we live. No matter how I crunch the numbers the outlook is bleak. And while my major concerns may be either cause or effect of global warming, general environmental degradation or population pressures, the current “Knockout Games” certainly give it a more personal, intimate horror and almost lends credence to the Biblical spin that Tea Partiers like to attach to our current era and their litany of Obamanations.

      wow, the knockout ‘games’ are highly disturbing. i am much more interested in this type phenomena than anything going on politically but maybe it is all related……o- i will miss the polar bears, altho not yet extinct i bet they will be soon. hopefully the kids playing the knockout games will become extinct or morph into decent humans. thanks for this, your big brain continually amazes.
