You really ought to get out of your mothers basement maybe once, and take a road trip to New York. There's close to 500,000 people that would love to give you a deserving hug. Spare us your negative thoughts. There's nothing poetic about you, unless however it's justice.
Lighten up, Francis.

Caught up in the frenzy. It's all good, think I'll just fade out before I get too stoopid.

Pondering about multiversus and cons

They say the universe is expanding ever faster.

Just a point of view:
The universe stays same size, we are shrinking ever more rapid.
Dreaming a temporary world improving the default world



Not expressing yourself but embracing all other expressions is The Challenge

In physics, the fine-structure constant, also known as Sommerfeld's constant, commonly denoted by α (the Greek letter alpha), is a fundamental physical constant characterizing the strength of the electromagnetic interaction between elementary charged particles. It is a dimensionless quantity related to the elementary charge e, which characterizes the strength of the coupling of an elementary charged particle with the electromagnetic field, by the formula 4πε0ħcα = e2. As a dimensionless quantity, its numerical value, approximately 1/137, is independent of the system of units used.

While there are multiple physical interpretations for α, it received its name from Arnold Sommerfeld introducing it (1916) in extending the Bohr model of the atom: α quantifies the gap in the fine structure of the spectral lines of the hydrogen atom, which had been precisely measured by Michelson and Morley.

The fact that America exists is the ultimate argument that Stoicism is not apathy and that philosophy is not mere theory. Because without Stoicism, it’s possible there would have been no revolution, no Constitution, no Bill of Rights and no Fourth of July.

Thomas Jefferson kept a copy of Seneca on his nightstand. George Washington staged a reproduction of a play about Cato at Valley Forge in the winter of ‘77/’78 to inspire the troops (having first read the Stoics as a teenager). Patrick Henry cribbed lines from that same play which we now credit to him: “Give me Liberty or give me death!” John Adams, Ben Franklin—almost all the founders were well-versed in the works of the Stoics. It’s partly what gave them the courage to found a new nation against such incredible odds, and it’s partly what set up the principles that formed that nation and changed the world.

A diagram of various units derived from the human hand. The palm (3) was originally the width of the palm but was standardized as the somewhat smaller width of four digits (6). The related shaftment (1) and hand (2) were the width of the palm plus an open or closed thumb. The other units are the span (4) and finger (5).

Be afraid of infection
Be scared of evil ways
Be scared for your protection
Best watch your every stop
Instinctual appeal to fear
Collapse and paralyze
Far gone is good intention
Smokescreen to commercialize

Teller of tales spin us in a line
Front page impersonation

Cities burn; the shies will fall
Civilization reduced to nothing
Disease will spread to all

We buy so we survive
Feel the acid rain corrode
I want to take a picture
Our lives would look disguised

Wash away this lying world
Terminate this iron fist

Strangled are we by the bastards of fascist culture
Strangled are we by the hands of our own people

ON the stage it's "our lives"
On the stage grows a mountain
As we stumble on we forget

Steel toed this path of corruption
Conceal and steer our minds away

"This Lying World" by Unearth

Consciousness contains all Multiverse
The Singularity cannot be hacked
The Divine Programmer manifests Love
Phenomena radiates it back
With Immaculate power and humble Grace
We Burn down Samsara
At Home, this must be the Place
