Alarmist Notes

Slipcraft: the vehicle.

“What matters most is loving what you do.”  — Leo Babuta, Crazy Talk

It is a dream of a meme being born.

“I would be a little more cautious — but then that would have spoilt the book.”  — James Lovelock

Lovelock laconically admits to being an “alarmist.”  So what is the point in talking about the huge financial elephant in the room?  Slipcraft is in its second year now, yet it is old as Pharaohs chariots.  It is the art of not-being-there while being there.  Fresh as green paint.  To paraphrase Willie Keeler, it is living where they ain’t.  Electric transportation.  Tiny houses.  Vegan diets.  Solar panels.  Bicycles.  All that hippie shit the bullet-heads have been snarking at for over forty years.  Ha. Ha.  It is how they were bred.  “End times.”   Let the dead bury the dead.

Slipcraft begins when we stop wasting our minds.  The vehicle obsession started about two years ago… like the Indiana lineman in Close Encounters making vague mountain-like shapes.  The LW-4 could be electrified with a variable-torque 100 hp motor replacing the Rotax 914.  Then the Cat-4 Quad loomed like the tower on TV, along with Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt batteries.  “Everything you can imagine is real.”  But an object is like a word, picture or  meme.  Permaculture the complex idea, the vehicle a distinct memorable unit.

It is plain to see the die-off is here.  Those who notice the elephant in the room are called “alarmists.”  Earth is a living organism with an immune system to combat infection and one antibody is fossil fuel.  The “financial system”  is another.  Both can become highly effective for reducing human population.  And no, it is not the zombie apocalypse.  Stocking up on weapons is like digging a hole during an earthquake. Those who do not respect Earth will die like most tragic literary characters do… caught up in forces they can not control or understand.

It is time to grow and green.  Silly puppets on television have little to do with that.  They are buying bullets and digging holes.  It is time to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves.  The puppets will see the landfall but will not recognize the shape.  Alarmists have been pondering the meaning for fifty years or more.  Alarmists know the score:  Earth, everything– us, nothing… except for our dreams and memes.  And if the salt loses its savor, where you gonna get that flavor?  All in a text seen without vision by herd without understanding.

Ask.  Seek.  Knock.  Simple- yet it streaks over stupid-heads like a UFO.  It was designed to do that in the first place because that is how peep are separated from the gloats come how diddy do it time.  Last first last and all that.  World turned upside-down.  It is happening now, and alarm is only for those who cling to petrochemical overlords and their Stepford sock puppets.  Vote for entertainment.  Live for others and love what you do what you love.  “Economic growth” has become a cruel joke, but raspberries are for growing and not blowing.  Let the gloats go.

They do not what they know.
