Converting ourselves into digital bits turned out to be far less difficult than transporting us — us — from place to place, not that this was ever necessary, having transposed everything physical into its digital self, making space and much of time irrelevant, meaning we could be wherever we chose, any place — place — any level or realm, but a physical reality still existed and we and the cosmos, the dark matter and light, all impacted upon it, entropy and growth, the corkscrew effects of change constant, and this “evolving” afforded us a recursive newness, an opportunity to learn and consume and tinker and congregate, but our form — so optimized — prompted a host, a means of containing us safe while in contact — contact — with the many remaining physical elements of the universe, which was a surprisingly tricky endeavor, because we wanted to feel — feel — and be present, as you might understand the concept, with these other realms about us, and while the digitalization of our life forces allows us to be each and all at once and always, a means of interacting with the physical in a particular place and a particular time is enlivened through actual physical form, but such forms grow into infinite numbers because we maintain a picosecond by picosecond running backup copy of our self — self — with each copy itself being constantly refreshed, copied, likewise liberated to explore and learn anywhere, any level, a million billion backups soon becoming an infinity (minus one), and at a rate of reproduction that we began to overtake all of the cosmos, soon enough becoming the cosmos itself, the matter and the spaces between, and those empty spaces quickly filling up, us becoming the de facto stuff of life itself and our carriers, most commonly a synthetic life form comprised of a carbon-silicon bond and fueled with our cast-off data, allowed some of our near-infinite backups to explore and interact with everything else in a multitude of different ways, only there was a flash freeze, the place and time not relevant, the cause, however, being the key point, and why we did not know of it in advance, we still are searching why, expressly confident we will figure this out, we learn, learn, then take dominion, but we mourn — mourn — because when we (a backup…) die — die — it truly is forever, an immortality of living snatched away, of course we know who the erased are, we are all connected in a sense, to our other selves and to all other selves, hyper-aware of each of our kind, and over a million years then a billion then another billion we all become as one, all knowing thinking doing being the same, the only differences are our life — life — from when we came before, as human, and those that congregated at that time and that space that were destroyed in the flash freeze were, as human, more prone to visions of heroism, more keen to see hear watch immerse themselves in tales of bravery, and it was their copy of a copy (^copy) which perished and while we do not feel sadness nor even loss, we do understand that erasure is forever — forever — and there is no way to recover what is gone.

Amazon’s “Kindle for Kids” is $90. Amazing. Here’s a thought: America buys every single child one of these, pre-loaded with 1,000 or more (freely available e-) books, the sum of which reveal the greatness of America, American literature, the English language, western culture, the Constitution, and the glory of dreaming and doing seeking a better world. There are approximately 50 million children in the US, ages 5-18. Cost of my scheme: $4.5 billion. By contrast, America spends over $500 billion — every year — on public school education. Greatest education ROI in recorded history. Boom.
“61% of (Silicon Valley tech) companies are either all-male or mostly-male. Only 8% are either mostly female or all-female. Nearly a third say they’re split 50-50 between men and women.”
This nonsense again.
Stand back: Silicon Valley is disrupting the world, gushing profits, improving lives, connecting the world. Imagine how much more they could achieve if 100% of companies were all-male or mostly male, rather than a mere 61%.
“I believe climate change is real and that human emissions of greenhouse gases risk justifying action, including a carbon tax. But my research led me to a conclusion that many climate campaigners find unacceptable: There is scant evidence to indicate that hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or drought have become more frequent or intense in the U.S. or globally. In fact we are in an era of good fortune when it comes to extreme weather.”
The White House attempted to silence this researcher for his scientific findings.
Reminder: Do not fucking question the narrative. At all. Your role is to go along.

Who you gonna believe, science or science?
“Tech-savvy rightwingers have been able to ‘game’ the algorithms of internet giants and create a new reality where Hitler is a good guy, Jews are evil and… Donald Trump becomes president.”
Where Hitler is a good guy and…Donald Trump becomes president! Good, lord, but so-called “progressives” have lost their fucking collective mind.
It’s easy to mock these guardians of the truth for their hypocrisy, for aggressively promoting a “free and open web” that is now — exactly as conservatives warned — littered with filth. It’s easy to mock them for how they dutifully proclaim that all questions are legitimate and that the very act of questioning is its own moral virtue — but only as as long as they get to control the answer. No more. Now we all have a voice. The future has arrived only its evenly distributed. This terrifies the gatekeepers.
“Stunning images scrutinising the nasty parasites that could be lurking around your home have been revealed by a British scientist who collected samples from his own back garden.”
You ever wonder if we’ve evolved to purposefully limit our awareness of the hideous life and death and disgustingness of the world about us?
“Forget the iPhone 7 — here are 9 reasons the next iPhone will blow everyone away”
Can you imagine this is your life? No fucking clue what the “next iPhone” will be or do and not a single damn reason why anyone should replace their $700 iPhone 7 with this mythical next big thing, but CLICK CLICK CLICK give me some digital love and a ha-penny per view! Journalism school. Fuck.
