It is not dying, it is not dying  —Tomorrow Never Knows.

1. Medium of exchange (frozen desire).  2. Value.  3. Dementia  4.Changing State. Denial is the medium of exchange.  Coincidence of wants is the coin of the realm.  

By no means random, this co-incidence seems “…a long term and often gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember such that a person’s daily functioning is affected,”  a standard definition of  dementia.  What does “daily” mean if the sun does not rise?  Well it doesn’t.  That is an illusion.  But we see it every day.  Slept his life away waiting for coincidence to happen before two people can trade.  Henry could see her in the window.  After the big ballet, the place still reeked.  Henry was one of thousands of upturned blobs-of-spit faces. Kapu māte watches above the portal.

Met on a ballet field of that war

Glyphosate is another elephant in the room,  Intellectuals who don’t have a background in chemistry can easily get disoriented in the diagrams, but Prof. Stigliz can explain Black Swans from an intellectual property regime lurking in TPP legalese.  Elephant has something for everyone:  dyslexia for the young, dementia for the old and cheap food for everybody.  What could go wrong?   The food chain is what, and TPP passed.  It should not surprise anyone, and it will be inappropriately rationalized after the fact.  As usual.  We are born with “dementia,” but we don’t call it that in children, even though they present the same “symptoms” as older folk.  Leap-second approaches.  Publish it now.

Cognitive load refers to the total amount of mental effort being used in the working memory.  Working memory is the system that is responsible for the transient holding and processing of new and already stored information,  Transient: from the Latin, meaning “going across.”  The problem is not storage… it’s retrieval.  Lotsa elephants in the room, and you can see them on YouTube here and here and all over the place.  Subscribe to OxfordUnion and get an English lesson.  Then you can watch the Walmartians and wonder what language they speak.

1. Global Warming (Climate Catastrophe) is real. 95% probability is as about as close to a sure thing as you can get in the real world. It’s physics, and very soon- climate deniers are going to look as stupid as evolution deniers… because they are both WRONG.

2. In the USA, the liberal-conservative left-right paradigm no longer applies. Why? Because in the USA, there is no “two-party” system. There is one party, the Money Party (Republicrats). Want more proof? Look out the window. Positioning based on a dwindling base of stupid-heads who think they are “conservative Christians” is a doomed strategy.

3. Monetary Collapse (2008): “Capitalism” is toast. Why? Because looters who called themselves “capitalists” flooded the monetary system with paper derivative “financial instruments” that are supposed to be “worth” in “dollars” more than the future gross output of the earth. Problem: see reason #1.

Creative Dementia is the art of passing as sane in an insane world.  Some stroke victims are able to do it.  Anecdotal evidence suggests that women are are better at this than men… but data is not yet available.  Prescient people must do the same thing, but only a small percentage can.   It involves, voluntary or not, shifting the cognitive to match “die dammit Leute,” (in German) the “go-along people.”

Those who grew up at the elbow of Strunk and White must remember: without readers your voice would never be heard. This says much about the voice of those who cry in the wilderness. Machine intelligence may hear them.
Throw a rope to Sam Watkins in  Co. Aych or A Side Show of the Big Show,  who knew a lost cause when he saw one. He could only be speaking to those born a century after him who know climate catastrophe is irreversible.

Writing is very much like praying. Reading is much like playing God.

    Your voice is heard, and headed. You voice is that of some, maybe not many, but a substantial some. We care not about the assigned definitions, nor the path we are shown. We struggle to find our own way, sometimes cutting through thornbush to find ourselves on a highway. But every now and then, we find each other and work out a more sane and gentle way to live that day. Keep feeding the elephant.
