...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the

Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

[ involution : A N 0 D Y N E : brain relief for the pharmacopacetic populace ] I don't regret any of my past drug experiences. Except for the heroin. That I regret. Every day. A lot. It's such a dull earthbound consciousness-unexpanding waste of time and money. It would be regrettable even if it WAS a fantastic mindblowing experience that only barely justified its attendant woes. But it wasn't even that, for Pete's sake. Just a drug that makes you stop worrying about things and feel stupidly happy - and if you want to feel that way, you can just get into television and it's a lot cheaper.

But anyway.

concept of the day:
the self, aware.

the mystery of the self. not the cosmic what am I, who, and what am I doing, but the center of consciousness, the thing at the heart of percieving. What is that? How come it's there? The science boys have no rational explanation for it. The monitor/CPU configuration doesn't get it. From the outside yes that a system this complex would need some kind of brain some kind of center. but that doesn't explain the MEness, the I AM HERE part. I was standing in the kitchen waiting for the water to boil and I felt it again, like the old days, that spark of thrilling rightness, the ineluctable, irreducible, unnameable thereness of here. Me. Now. I can't explain it except as fragmented God. Pieces broken off, trying to become whole again. Or gathering in from the last big bang? I have no firm theory. But like the micro-infinite, it gooses my bean.

Government payments account for 30% of the gross incomes of wheat farms and 20% of revenue for other grains and soybeans.
||| NATIONAL FARMERS UNION - While net farm income is expected to decline 20%, agribusiness giant Cargill, Inc., is enjoying a 51% increase in earnings compared to a year ago.
"Something is definitely wrong with this picture," National Farmers Union President Leland Swenson today told delegates to the National Farmers Organization convention. "While farmers have experienced a five-year economic slump, some large agribusinesses are profiting from low prices farmers must take for the commodities they produce." . . . Swenson pointed out that while Cargill now employs 90,000 people, more than three times that many U.S. farmers will lose their jobs in the next ten years, according to the latest U.S. Department of Labor report.

Pope and company pray for peace and vow never to use God's name as a banner of war. Reuters Photo OK yes but. Probably most if not probably all of these religious leaders sit at the heads of churches who/which gained their prominence in martial fashion. Certainly the Catholic church was a ravenous bloody predator on the poor and indigenous peoples of the world for centuries, and I imagine it's been the same for the others. It's like these yobs of rock that say how great life is now they're clean and sober, after the toxic jet launch that put them in the spotlight.

Spin of the Day Mark Crispin Miller examines the growing power of the world's 10 largest media multinationals: AOL Time Warner, Disney, General Electric, News Corporation, Viacom, Vivendi, Sony, Bertelsmann, AT&T and Liberty Media. "The media cartel that keeps us fully entertained and permanently half-informed is always growing here and shriveling there, with certain of its members bulking up while others slowly fall apart or get digested whole," he observes. "But while the players tend to come and go--always with a few exceptions--the overall Leviathan itself keeps getting bigger, louder, brighter, forever taking up more time and space, in every street, in countless homes, in every other head. ... Of all the cartel's dangerous consequences for American society and culture, the worst is its corrosive influence on journalism." Source: The Nation, January 1, 2002

Spin of the Day "The images that streamed from inside Afghanistan after the fall of Kabul were a propaganda dream for the United States government," notes the Independent. "Afghan women, after years of cruel subjugation by the Taliban, were daring to shed their veils and to expose their faces once again to the world and to sunlight." Meanwhile, in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the first woman ever to become a U.S. fighter pilot,is suing the Pentagon for violating her constitutional rights by forcing her to wear an "abaya," a burqa-like, suffocating, head-to-toe robe that allows no glimpse of flesh and has only two slits for the eyes. The Independent asks: "How can the US continue to require its own servicewomen to cover themselves in the Kingdom, when it is celebrating its success in liberating women from the custom in Afghanistan?"

Spin of the Day "Some of the nation's largest corporate advertisers, seeking greater control over television, are proposing to create their own shows to air on the major broadcast networks," the Los Angeles Times writes. With network advertising revenues down, some TV executives are open to corporate sponsored shows. Both Ford Motor Company and Coca-Cola are developing TV shows to promote their products. Ford's "No Boundaries" premieres on the WB network in March. Coca-Cola's "Stepping Stones" is set for NBC's summer season. Writes the LA Times: "'Blending a commercial message with a program so that the program is the message' offers an advertiser 'a perfect marketing fit,' said Robert Riesenberg,

Orion > Thoughts on America - Pope Going by Train to Assisi Il Papa looks better and better as time goes on

Scientific American: Skeptic : The Gradual Illumination of the Mind: February 2002 perhaps we should not be surprised at the results of a 2001 Gallup poll confirming that 45 percent of Americans believe "God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years or so"; 37 percent prefer a blended belief that "human beings have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God guided this process"; and a paltry 12 percent accept the standard scientific theory that "human beings have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God had no part in this process

Scientific American: Feature Article: The Bottleneck: February 2002 Environmentalism is something more central and vastly more important. Its essence has been defined by science in the following way. Earth, unlike the other solar planets, is not in physical equilibrium. It depends on its living shell to create the special conditions on which life is sustainable. The soil, water, and atmosphere of its surface have evolved over hundreds of millions of years to their present condition by the activity of the biosphere, a stupendously complex layer of living creatures whose activities are locked together in precise but tenuous global cycles of energy and transformed organic matter. The biosphere creates our special world anew every day, every minute, and holds it in a unique, shimmering physical disequilibrium. On that disequilibrium the human species is in total thrall. When we alter the biosphere in any direction, we move the environment away from the delicate dance of biology. When we destroy ecosystems and extinguish species, we degrade the greatest heritage this planet has to offer and thereby threaten our own existence.

Scientific American: Feature Article: The Bottleneck: February 2002 Meanwhile the surtax levied on the environment to support China's growth, though rarely entered on the national balance sheets, is escalating to a ruinous level. Among the most telling indicators is the pollution of water. Here is a measure worth pondering. China has in all 50,000 kilometers of major rivers. Of these, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, 80 percent no longer support fish. The Yellow River is dead along much of its course, so fouled with chromium, cadmium, and other toxins from oil refineries, paper mills, and chemical plants as to be unfit for either human consumption or irrigation. Diseases from bacterial and toxic-waste pollution are epidemic.

Scientific American: Feature Article: The Bottleneck: February 2002 The consequences of their reproductive prowess are multiple and deep. The people of the developing countries are already far younger than those in the industrial countries and destined to become more so. The streets of Lagos, Manaus, Karachi, and other cities in the developing world are a sea of children. To an observer fresh from Europe or North America, the crowds give the feel of a gigantic school just let out. In at least 68 of the countries, more than 40 percent of the population is under 15 years of age--e.o. wilson on population dynamics. (Italy has the lowest per cap birth rate???)
