Kiss France goodbye. HYAR BE DRAGONES.
All beautiful losers now. The only role left to play on this sad stage.
Anyhoo, I was thinking about it today. It really was a brief shining Camelot, this thing called Western civilization. It lasted a little while. Then it passed away. Everything that is too successful carries within it the seeds of it's own destruction. When it wanted to become empire, it withered away. Nothing is permanent and the most beautiful and sane things are the shortest lived of all if we are talking about human beings. The bad drives out the good. Mankind is a cesspool and it's the biggest crudest chunks that float to the top given enough time. The best men die and are trampled underfoot by simpletons who will soon starve without them. Everything vulgar, brutal and weak easily overcomes the rare and strong through numbers. Keep that in mind - I will return to it at the end of this post.
Perhaps the planet will roll on into the darkness with the hooting of mindless apes and no end to swift crotch-grabbing and be-bopping. Then the lights will flicker one last time and go out.
Or not. Maybe something else altogether is getting ready to happen. Maybe it happens all the time, which explains why we're still here. Something very big, too big for man's tiny chimp brain to altogether grasp for the most part.
Maybe we'll just close the hatch and set a while when the time comes. Maybe we'll just hunker down while these critters fry.
I have a very important question for you.
What is the driver of spontaneous equilibrium? No, don't say it doesn't matter. It's a very important question. Has to be something. What is it? After a long time of pondering this question, I think I know now.
