Like the website that hosts it, this blog is only concerned with using art and brief texts to uncover the bias and other limitations of thought conditioned by memory and tradition, thus also revealing how this largely unacknowledged tribal egotism that affects all human beings creates and sustains the systemic disorder and violence of the world in which we all live.

Without a radical awakening to the immense distance between our mental and social reality and the truth, we are condemned to continue living in the same cruel division, conflict, and sorrow to which we ourselves sustain with our personal memories, thoughts, and desires.

A Conversation with Life-and-Death Implications for Humanity as a Whole.

In a surprisingly polite conversation, two Englishmen, a journalist and a climate activist, talk about the fate of humanity. The activist, a leader of Extension Rebellion, argues that massive and radical acts of civil disobedience are absolutely necessary to bring about the corrective measures that might impede the collapse of entire ecological systems and the societies they support, possibly leading to the extinction of our species. The other argues, in an equally forceful manner, that the tactics, measures, and timetable proposed are, not only unrealistic but pose a mortal threat to the capitalist and democratic values and methods upheld and embodied by the British people at large. He quotes a chief of police who has declared that the movement (Extinction Rebellion) is of a terrorist nature. Do you think that things will, and ought to continue pretty much as they are now, perhaps with some slight and very gradual modifications to avoid environmental problems, or that humanity is really facing a short term environmental catastrophe that demands an unprecedented transformation in how we live and relate to one another and the world at large? An urgent conversation for sure, one for which we have little time left.
