is alive, every rock around and in every lakebed or former lakebed is alive; guess it just depends on how we see things - the rocks, the trees, the birds, the bees, the yous, the mees - are all alive - they/we are expressions of life - the life that has been breathed into the all-everything from the one LIFE; and the expression of life is not life.

What is: perhaps he believes he is illumined and doing the work of God to take civilization to better places and that polarity is the great controller and that he is practicing this principle of dividing universal equilibrium into pairs of oppositely-conditioned mates (USA vs. China) to create his own little sex-divided two way electric universe - eg. to be Frank, perhaps he is just a self-serving public servant opportunist that believes there is power to be had in being a catalyst for USA-China polarity?

Man manufactures the money.. man manufactures the rockets... it's one gigantic manufactured masturbation - apparently sometimes humanity just gets horney and needs to get it's nut off by blasting some human into outer space in the name of progress. Ugh. Nevermind... I just happen to have a case of the Mondays on Friday... forget you ever read that... think it's time to go enjoy an ice cold bottle of suds.

"Notice how the wind causes the fan blades to circulate? Yes? Good." The wind is causing nothing. Wind blowing is a complex (and in this case mystifying) effect. The 'the sail boat is traveling faster than the wind' is not an actual fact, it's an apparent fact conditioned by space, time and motion. An effect is not a cause. An apparent fact is not a fact. And we don't know... only knowledge knows.
