Very dumb

September 02nd, 2014 by Vader

But I confess it made me laugh out loud anyway.

Long-time readers will understand why I have not shared this with His Majesty.

The Intimacy of the Flesh (of the Peach and the Tomato)

August 27th, 2014 by G.

I’m reading a book on permaculture gardening. On the technical stuff its good. In its philosophizing and general worldview, its pretty hippy dippy. Still, if you pan for nuggets, you find them.

Here’s one:

With a garden there is a long courtship and the prospect of a lasting marriage.

-thus Peter Bane, the Permaculture Handbook

The Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, in Daily Life

August 27th, 2014 by G.

The temple presents the Garden of Eden experience as a basic archetype that underlies human life. The temple–prepare to be shocked–is right. (more…)

Myopia

August 27th, 2014 by Zen

The scandal enveloping England right now, is 1400 girls have been sexually abused and raped, but the local authorities did nothing because they didn’t want to look racist. The BBC reports on this, but refuses to mention the racial aspect. You may not want to read this on a full stomach. 1 2 3

That and 1400 is probably conservative and there is evidence that this is not limited or unique to Rotherham. The authorities guilty have taken responsibility for this by resigning.

(Hint: when you screw up that badly, that is not taking responsibility. This is.)

Meanwhile, Billy Joel was criticized in his tribute to the late Robin Williams, for including a very tame “racist” joke and a frat is facing Title IX violations for a dancing teletubby.

In other news, on Monday, Beyonce performed a sexually suggestive performance at the VMAs, that involved an abundance of butts, scantily-clad women spread-eagle, and lewd lyrics. But she also put up a sign in lights that said Feminist, so she was applauded. The next night, at the Emmys (no, I don’t watch these things) Sofia Vergara in a full length classy dress stood on a platform as a bit of a joke. This was decried as sexist and objectifying.

I could go on, and I could certainly provide more links. What concerns me (above and beyond the actual tragedies) is how distorted things are to the World. They can not tell up from down.

And so will we if we do not keep the commandments.

Damnation is Inevitable

August 27th, 2014 by G.

When you think about the conditions that make choice meaningful, the need for atonement and the inevitably of damnation both pop out. (more…)

Red Queen’s Race

August 25th, 2014 by Man SL

You can’t even have things stay the same without ongoing selection – otherwise mutations and drift would gradually ruin everything. Only selection lets horseshoe crabs outlast mountain ranges.

We’re Parochial Beings

August 25th, 2014 by G.

It’s like a tree full of birds chattering about how dumb the fish are because they can’t fly, all while the fish are swimming around blurbing about how much more fun the birds would be having if they just tried swimming.

Not many of us are flying fish, or kingfishers.

The Tao of Elder Packer: Juxtapositions III

August 25th, 2014 by G.

Much of what I have come to know falls into the category of things which cannot be taught but can be learned. Knowledge which is of eternal value comes only through personal prayer and pondering.

The ultimate take on actors

August 25th, 2014 by Vader

I liked it better when we didn’t pretend actors had core competencies beyond pretending to be other people and having amusingly disastrous personal lives.
