The Theory of Everything

The Theory of Everything: it's all about the letters “ing”. These letters are transformative. They change things and push them along, constructing and deconstructing realities and forming concepts of time (i.e., life and death). Unification is and it isn’t; it locates and dislocates itself simultaneously. Unity is an imitation of declarative essence, confrontational essence and essences of hope and hopelessness: material and spiritual unity as the substance of everything/nothing declaring itself, confronting itself and finally denying itself.

Fraud and Abuse

I’m imagining a TV drama series: the story of three blue-collar middle-class families in three US cities, and how the Wall Street investor-class effect their lives. Patterned after Law and Order, each episode will be 90 minutes with half the time focused on the families and the other half focused on finance. The actors on Wall Street will change every episode; the “family” actors will be reoccurring. The story line will follow the top-heavy banking practices supporting the top 1% of Americans and how the unintended consequences of those practices contributed to violence and addiction (domestic, sexual and psychological) among the three families and their friends. The show will be called “Fraud and Abuse”.

An Idea for a Book I'm Thinking About Working On

Past, Present and Failure.
Life evolves slowly. Technology develops rapidly. “Evolving” and “developing” are two different things. If development of technology (created and adopted by human beings) overtakes the life-form and its organic systems (physiological and environmental limitations), technology -- which runs on batteries -- eventually stops working or becomes dysfunctional and obsolete; un
able to reboot. At the same time, the life-form -- which runs on an unknown or undetermined power supply -- eventually dies because it devolves and collapses faster than it evolves and expands; technology is contraindicated. This means that an anticipated and predictable, steadily deteriorating failure might be the effect of the future. Entropy as an effect, not a cause.
