• Glass 1.1 | Project

    I am bumping this project to the top of my notes, as I was reminded of it today; in particular how it relates to spin coherence and those who have worked with a newer element called Ormus: Posted a new project under Becoming Objects. Read the full description.

  • The Seismic Shift of Choice.

    Hurricane Sandy ushered in a change in people’s lives beyond that which is brought by the force of wind and water. It may be merely symbolic, but since that day in late October a series of events occurred that seemed to show us the ills in our world, (the mass killing at Sandy Hook, the gang rapes ignored by authorities in India and Steubenville, OH). But if you look closely, a seismic shift has occurred and provided a small glimpse into how the escalation of corruption, cruelty, and the senseless destruction of life does not go on forever.

  • Poverty is not fate

    “‎Poverty is not fate, it is a condition; it is not a misfortune, it is an injustice. It is the result of social structures and mental and cultural categories, it is linked to the way in which society has been built, in its various manifestations.” — Gustavo Gutiérrez (via anarcho-queer) (Source: mikeqj, via dendroica)

  • Area Code 757

    What can you do with what appears to be a growing collection of strange voicemails? I decided to share one of the best.

  • Washington’s New Stalking Protection Order (SPO)

    In 2012 I testified before the Washington State Legislature regarding the creation of a new kind of protection order for victims of stalking. The Bill was considered because there was no protection for victims of stalking, that occurred outside of Domestic Violence. I felt it was important for the Order to also include cyberstalking. The… Continue Reading

  • American Image

    There is something compelling and beautiful about this image; a 1886 photo provided by the Library of Congress via the Theodore Roosevelt Center in North Dakota. Shown are Wilmot Dow, left, Theodore Roosevelt, center, and William Wingate Sewall, right. Perhaps it is because they seemed to feel themselves to be bears. Rough Riders and Renegades,… Continue Reading

  • Regarding the Role of the Front-man

    Julian Assange did an interview on Democracy Now, which aired today. If you take the time to listen to Assange speak, you will almost always learn something. He and his colleagues are survivors in a battle against great formidable enemies. There is no reason why they should have survived half the time of the battle… Continue Reading

  • There Was Earth in Them

    [Poem] There was Earth in them, and they dug. They dug and they dug, and so their Day went by, and their Night. And they did not praise God, who, so they heard, wanted all this, who, so they heard, knew of all this. They dug and they heard nothing more; did not grow wise,… Continue Reading

  • Independence Day

    I am following Tangerine Bolen, and creating a list of people who I am grateful for and who I feel have contributed to our great country this past year. Without their tremendous effort it is likely the freedom we depend on would be greatly diminished. Glenn Greenwald Edward Snowden Alexa O’Brien Daneil Ellsberg Chris Hedges… Continue Reading

  • The Frontman: The Fall Man; The Scapegoat

    I am developing compassion for the frontman. Once he/she recognizes the loathsome role they have been assigned by those who encouraged them, they would be better off not discussing it. For if they perceive their scapegoat is becoming uncomfortable rather than carrying out their task in blissful ignorance, history shows they will likely turn on… Continue Reading
