Seconded.

"We had to destroy the country in order to save it.  Detroit has been renamed My Lai."

So, explain to me how, after a primary where the "more radical" candidates made a strong showing on both the left and right, a disastrous four years of Trump (including, let's not forget, a Supreme Court pick) would somehow spur the country into thinking, "yeah, more of that, please"?

To me, it seems far more probable that the majority of voters would swing hard middle away from both extremes, leaving ideologues out in the cold for a long, long time.

I feel if Bernie were really sincere about a "revolution", he would immediately pivot his current momentum into changing the makeup of the House and Senate, where an influx of lefter-leaning politicians would begin forming a base to a more liberal government.

I like it.  Part of me thinks Clinton gets more shit than she deserves, but she's still way more moderate than I'd like.

If you have the time, I'd like to read the other things you post over yonder -- and if possible, some screen grabs of reactions.

Babel hibernates in binary code.

Though I don't find it personally horrible, I really like the idea.  Maybe you could move that to Original Story Ideas, if you can avoid it turning into Snow Crash.

Wow.

If this gets some momentum, I see a new project in the works...

For the Chao te Ching FB page*, I've been posting a chapter every few weeks -- there's 81, so I'm not gonna run out, and even when I do, I'll just start over.  The first post was Feb 2012; it'll be fresh again.

Anyway, the brag is that the chapters on Authority (roughly the 50s) are coming up now, and seem to reflect the current state of events pretty accurately.  It always feels good to stay relevant.

You're the one who's the flour-based alchemy master.  Got a recipe?

I wan't thinking a full meal, but that is intriguing.

I figured warming fat to a couple hundred degrees would activate the oils, but wasn't sure if it affected the end result in a way I should be aware of.  Might go with brownies, old staple.

OK, so this is just a hypothetical.

What if I lived, or paid a visit to Colorado, and decided to make baked goods using some of the local produce now available to adult consumers?

What would be the best recipes to make?


Asking for a friend.

But since almost everything else that tries to kill us quickly also functions in that narrow range of vibration, we can survive.

Except God, who cheats.

You ain't kidding, Jack.

I dunno, it makes perfect sense to me, especially after the board discussions of evolution a few years back.

We are here because we survived.  Sacrifices in clarity must be made when faced with a greater existential risk.

Our perception did develop more clarity, in relation to other terrestrial things like flatworms and cows.  But this is where the conflation comes in.  We have greater clarity in a very narrow range of vibration in which we function.  But since almost everything else that tries to kill us quickly also functions in that narrow range of vibration, we can survive.
