It’s Come to This

All dissipative structures, built to dissipate energy gradients in fulfillment of the universal entropy mandate, are themselves subject to return to their lowest energy state or dissolution. There is no avoiding it. Even financial success, although perhaps guarding against a premature dissolution, has no power in the end. Statues, names on buildings, photographs, digital files etc. and other memorabilia are also subject to disintegration. Rising up against equilibrium is a temporary condition as the universe is always pulling in the opposite direction and the universe sets the rules.

All of the religious insanity and appeal to the mystical is only another attempt to foil the inviolable decree of the universe in which life and order are only granted for a short time and only if it pays for itself in entropy produced. Desperate dissipatives that lie, cheat, steal, murder, politick, grandstand and otherwise compete for energy (wealth) to stay above equilibrium, for a short while, is the natural order (or disorder) of things. No doubt humans will destroy themselves and everything around them in a panicked attempt to keep their heads above the equilibrium water as the fossil fuel gradient becomes insufficient. Many, coddled in a time of abundant surplus energy are far too trusting, taking untested, “warp-speed” vaccines in response to mask, lock-down and various propaganda fear campaigns orchestrated by a malevolent, traitorous government composed of greedy, gelatinous, glad-handing and unscrupulous puppets. Unwary people will lose the battle for existence to those that deceive, enslave and murder on a whim, or in the current environment, to those hatching carefully planned and deceitful operations aimed at “cleaning-up” humanity.

“This won’t hurt a bit and besides it’s all for the greater good. God bless your little heart – you’re going to need it when the myocarditis starts.”

You trust your mommy don’t you?

You trust the doctor don’t you?

You trust the government don’t you?

They don’t have any “dissipative” ulterior motives do they?

  1. I tried to read JHK a couple of times yesterday. I could never quite get through the bit.

    I have to admit that there is a lot of fishy business surrounding the “vaccines”, has been from the start. But with the information available to me, that’s about all I can say. I can’t make the jump from an increased death rate, to a scheme for mass population reduction, by a cadre of mysterious elites, by way of a janky poisonous vaccine.

    I do think that many of the more prominant vaccine pushers have their dirty fingers stuck in a pie of greed, control, deceit, megalomania and blame shifting I have to think that “they” will stop pushing them in the near future. The whole issue will be overcome by events, and largly forgotten, in next few years. I guess.

    I’d like to be wrong. I’d like to see someone be held accountable for something. But that is not the order of the day.

    1. Most people don’t perceive the impending cessation of growth and the collapse of the Western money system which is reason enough for the unscrupulous to make a genocidal vaccine system a feature of our existence. They’re dissipatives and especially greedy ones that will refuse to reverse the wealth pump to support useless eaters. They would much rather kill the useless eaters than support them when energy levels are diminishing. Maybe when Putin liberates the West and storms the Pfizer and Moderna Zyklon-B factories we’ll find out who is responsible.

  2. Does KY allow recreational marijuana sales? I kinda doubt it. This was something of an issue in “progressive” states for a long time. I’ve been kind of neutral on the subject. But I have seen people essentially get their life ruined over a pot bust. Confiscated property and all that. I’ve always thought that was wrong.

    CT will start recreational sales on Tuesday of this week.

    I used to go up to MA to buy some on occasion. I haven’t in quite a while. When MA first started there was one or two outlets. There would be lines around the block to get in. The last time I went up to Holyoke MA to buy some, must be about two years ago at this point, there was like a a pot shop on very other block. Take your pick.

            1. Yeah my flight over there was seventeen hours from Houston to Taipei, then another four and half hours from Taipei to Bangkok. Twenty-one and a half flying hours to get there. Flying back it was four hours from Bangkok to Taipei and then thirteen hours from Taipei to Houston. Only seventeen flying hours to get back, much easier. It has to do with flying against the wind on the way over there and with the wind on the way back.

              The Russian’s are lucky to be in the same hemisphere and the furthest to the east in Europe. Makes it only around 9 hours flight time. I’m going to assume that aviation fuel is also cheaper for them too, at least on the way over.

    The atoms turned to molecules and released net energy. The molecules turned to cells and released net energy. The cells turned into humans and released net energy.

Let the radiation free to fill the great coldness of Fahrenheit 451. The universe wants the energy trapped in the fossil fuels just as much as it wants the energy trapped in you. And some day, it will get that energy.

  7. “Spotlight on China” is laying it on pretty thick as the dissipative, dead wood is thinned out a bit. You have to keep “pandemic” in people’s minds until they’re incarcerated in the “vaccine system.” That’s what happens at the crematorium, the universe reclaims the energy it let you borrow to do its work, your body. It’s a win-win because you get to burn some fossil fuels too. At least the molecules are organic and potentially recyclable. What’s with those oversized coffins? Surely they don’t burn those. I don’t think I would bury one either for the slow subterranean burn. People might have to live in those before its all over. Put some air vents in that, a small solar heater, LED, a big comforter, pipe in some Muzak, close the lid and you might have a right nice microclimate.

  14. I think the fear induced hysteria was whipped-up intentionally to usher-in the vaccine program. If anything, there seems to be too little hysteria regarding the excess deaths. The virus has evolved to mimic human tissue epitopes so it’s not recognized by the immune system. That makes it extremely difficult if not impossible to create a vaccine against it, even with AI etc. It might be that a certain amount of autoimmunity death is acceptable. But if the vaccines are in the least effective, why are vaccine recipients more likely to repeatedly contract Covid? My feeling at this point is that the more times you are vaccinated or catch Covid the more damaged you become and the less likely you are to repulse future infections. A downward spiral. What should cause more hysteria is that we have crackpots like Biden, Trudeau, Trump, Boris Johnson and Macron at the steering wheels in the West with the WEF pulling their strings.

  18. This video is good so you can understand the dynamics of your own vaporization.

    The Sun releases the equivalent of 8-9 trillion megatons of TNT per second but by the time some fraction of that hits the earth it’s only good for warming things up a bit, getting organisms to pop-out of the land and oceans, create air and water currents, illuminate things and do a lot of evaporation. That was good enough for several billion years. Why would evolution use the RNA/DNA of cells to create a second tier RNA/DNA which is the foundation of the human technological civilization? Because the human, equipped with new tools for carving things up, could begin to consume the body from which it had just emerged and would be driven by technological competition to consume it faster and faster to stay ahead. (Nations and tribes are mostly separated by differences in language or information as a result of evolving in relative isolation in the past. They are quasi-species in the technological system.) That’s where we are now, chimps that are mostly identical in cellular DNA that find separation based mostly upon differences in language, a feature of technological evolution. Due to leaky DNA-equivalent information like stolen plans, several of these different quasi-specie nations are also equipped with nuclear weapons for fighting over who will consume what remains to be eaten of the natural world and non-organics to be incorporated into the technological corpus.

    I have to kind of think, if there is some plan or way to reduce the pressure, by the release of some janky virus and follow on vaccines, which I don’t really think there is, I’d have to buy into it. When wide scale famines start to hit industrial centers (USA, Western Europe, Japan…), and I believe this is coming in the relatively near future, I guess we’ll find out, if the big bombs will be released that is.

    But maybe Europe, Japan, S.Korea, Africa, Etc…, will be allowed (forced)to starve first. That would be my plan, if I was in charge, but I’m not. If I was in charge the USA would have been rebuilding its industry over the last 30 years, not shipping it over to China. This what happens when you put the fucking bankers in charge. Oh well…

    10C warming locked-in

    “New research from eminent climate scientist Prof James Hansen and colleagues suggests a planet killing event. This is based on current CO2 levels in the atmosphere, not on future emissions. ‘Eventual global warming due to today’s GHG forcing alone – after slow feedbacks operate – is about 10°C.”

    Read the full paper here:

    ABSTRACT
    Improved knowledge of glacial-to-interglacial global temperature change implies that fast-
    feedback equilibrium climate sensitivity is at least ~4°C for doubled CO2 (2×CO2), with likely
    range 3.5-5.5°C. Greenhouse gas (GHG) climate forcing is 4.1 W/m2 larger in 2021 than in
    1750, equivalent to 2×CO2 forcing. Global warming in the pipeline is greater than prior
    estimates. Eventual global warming due to today’s GHG forcing alone – after slow feedbacks
    operate – is about 10°C. Human-made aerosols are a major climate forcing, mainly via their
    effect on clouds. We infer from paleoclimate data that aerosol cooling offset GHG warming for
    several millennia as civilization developed. A hinge-point in global warming occurred in 1970
    as increased GHG warming outpaced aerosol cooling, leading to global warming of 0.18°C per
    decade. Aerosol cooling is larger than estimated in the current IPCC report, but it has declined
    since 2010 because of aerosol reductions in China and shipping. Without unprecedented global
    actions to reduce GHG growth, 2010 could be another hinge point, with global warming in
    following decades 50-100% greater than in the prior 40 years. The enormity of consequences of warming in the pipeline demands a new approach addressing legacy and future emissions. The essential requirement to “save” young people and future generations is return to Holocene-level global temperature. Three urgently required actions are: 1) a global increasing price on GHG emissions, 2) purposeful intervention to rapidly phase down present massive geoengineering of Earth’s climate, and 3) renewed East-West cooperation in a way that accommodates developing world needs.”

      The New Demons (1975)
      Summary by Darrell J. Fasching

      When Ellul’s work first began to be published in United States in the 1960s and 70s, his readers fell into two camps – his sociological fans and his theological fans, each often unaware of Ellul’s ‘other side’. For Ellul, the separation was deliberate. Science should not be confused with theology and vice versa. The business of sociology is to analyze the causal chains that determine our lives. It cannot provide, in itself, the way to freedom. Necessity is the product of the sacralization of society which seduces humans into embracing our utopian hope that technology can fulfill our wildest hopes and dreams for the good things of life. So enthralled, we become blind and unable to challenge its determinisms. We seek the wonders produced by nuclear power and end up threatened with global annihilation. We seek the abundance technology can produce and end up with global pollution and global warming. Such is the paradox created by our utopian hopes.

      What The New Demons does is demythologize modern technological civilization by noting its similarities to pre-biblical ancient societies. The response to the powers of technology is analogized to the sacral awe attributed to the powers of nature in polytheism. The function of politics is analogized to the function of ritual in polytheistic societies; conforming people to a sacred social order. And the function of mass media is analogized to the materialist/consumerist elements of polytheistic myths that invoke the gods to bring prosperity and the acquisition of the goods of life. Finally, Ellul adds his “Coda to Christians” where for the first time in his sociological writings he suggests that the answer to these paradoxes must come from outside the sociological frame of reference — in a theology that offers an apocalypse of hope, desacralizing “the sacred heart of a technical universe” and initiating a cultural revolution which liberates us from the sacred and sanctifies or makes holy the world we live in.

      They are the “Science” and the technology, the modern God. Fauci said so. Besides the most holy jabs, I think there are more sacraments to come. Maybe a sprinkling of holy glowing radioisotopes. In my mind I see this book laying in the middle of a rubble strewn street with burnt edges, it’s pages blowing in the wind. There are no longer any humans to read it. They didn’t read it when the cancer was only in Stage 2.

          I seriously wondered if Brighton was the Purgatory where all the rejected books in the world go, waiting for a second or third chance.

  37. The ATP in the human body can be thought of as an analog to water vapor in the atmosphere, molecules temporarily suspended at a higher energy level through agitation by the Sun (indirectly for ATP via photosynthesis and glucose) poised to fall back to earth as they release their temporary energy gains. The rain will flow into rivers and then to the lowest point or sea by gravity while the human will take a more circuitous route in search of food, striving desperately to avoid their own final resting place by recharging their ADP to ATP. Unfortunately many starve while others step on their bones en route to their next meal.

    If given a choice, I’m not sure those that have passed would choose to be resurrected back to what is in effect a bloody energy battleground populated mostly by greedy and merciless dissipative competitors (reference current pharmaceutical genocide and Ukraine war as examples). Better to stay comfortably below ground detached from the muffled struggles, screams, tears and disappointments found above, brought to us by evolution’s extremes. Better yet is to not “be” at all.

    And it all finds its origin in the electrons of molecules shaken out of their comfortable orbits by the Sun’s radiation which subsequently release that energy as they return to lower energy states. A rain storm or a human searching for food, one relatively simple and one relatively complex (DNA), are cousins in the dissipative phenomena active in the liquid and gas layers surrounding the terra firma of the Earth. It becomes more and more apparent that humans, even along their technological tangent, are nothing “special” in the Universe, but are simply more complex mechanisms for the release of temporarily trapped energy of the Sun.

The security state with the central node of that being what’s called a foreign intelligence agency but is really more of a state sanctioned mafia. This institution is probably where the mass media is centrally conducted from in secret. Lastly there is the deep state, which is centered in finance capital, although it inolves all other types of capital as well. Banking magnates run the deep state, presidents and prime ministers are intermediaries between the real ruling order and the sheeple.

      The system is fundamentally a con artist system. Nothing is what it really appears to be. Perception is constantly manipulated and reality is hidden. The history of the nation is false and misleading. Lots of layers of complexity to hide what’s really going on underneath, just like in money laundering.

      The existential problem for the bankers is worker’s consent, so class warfare. In a perfect world there would be no need for worker’s consent. With fusion energy and A.I. you can remove workers and use the limitless energy to power robots. No need for pesky things like a high standard of living for workers who are destroying your environment and protesting against your quest for full spectrum dominance.

Celebrity gossip. Chasing all sorts of material things you don’t really need, helping to distract attention away from the ruling order and provide capitalists with an added opportunity to profit from the distraction. But the world has limits to growth and this system of providing endless material distraction has reached it’s limits. So how else are you supposed to keep the population in line?

  46. Graham, or as my Thai wife would say Gray-Ham, is confused. Early Homo sapiens, users of tools, left nice pictographs of themselves slaughtering megafauna. Magicians? Asteroids? The ceremonial ant mounds that humans cooperatively built in early civilizations focused authority sufficiently in a priestly class to get things done like roads and other infrastructure of ecosystem plunder. Plenty of humans were sacrificed to those Gods that inhabited the heavens, which at that time were fuzzy enough to hide their real celestial and orbital identities. “Oomph, ungawa, the Gods have spoken. We need more jaguar skins, delicious meat of pygmy, beautiful feathers and young girls here at the temple. Now get busy or be struck down by the wrath of God.” And so it was for many years until the people realized they were being played.

    1. Somebody once said, something like: “Humans have two modes of operation, complacency and panic.” I think that this is particularly true in herd situations.

    2. It makes me think of Issac Newton, arguably one the smartest people who ever lived. Anyhoo, I guess that when he wasn’t busy devising the calculus, and figuring out laws of motion and gravity and such, he was busy speculating and losing money in various markets, and dabbleing in occultism. Just goes to show that brains have pretty much nothing to do with anything. I guess.

    1. “What hasn’t changed is humans are still running Wetware 1.0 which has default settings for extremes of emotion, particularly manic euphoria, running with the herd (a.k.a. FOMO, fear of missing out) and panic / fear.”

      When you’re on the left, ascending side of the bubble graph all you can see is the continuous growth and good times. The descending side is hidden from you. For all you know it doesn’t exist. It feels good emotionally to think that “the price of houses always goes up” or something else emotionally satisfying. Even on the other side of the graph people might still be looking towards the former peak and say, “Well look, it’s not so bad, prices will go up again.” But the descent continues back to the mean which, in the case of civilization, will likely be determined by the amount of sunlight that can directly or through biomass be fed into the dissipative structures which will have new climate change stresses put upon them. Civilization might settle somewhere below the long-term mean with ninety-nine percent less people and no houses at all, at least in their current form since we’ve already stripped away much of the vegetation and soil that were going to fix the carbon into some glucose for us and our food chain to eat. Newton should have invested in the East India Company instead of tulips. I wonder if Stephen Hawking had a Beanie Baby collection.

      I think all of the debt and printed money makes people expect the altitude to increase forever because, after all, it’s a “thirty-year” bond. Those selling the bonds are the same ones that made treaties with the native Americans and Putin and broke all of the promises later. Maybe people can fashion a sled from all of their paper assets and slide down the mountain in style.

    At about 4:30 mark:

    “The entirety of my work is to show that the current plan (green energy) is not a very good one. Who I’m really talking to are the people that control our society. And I’m talking about the banking sector. They’re interested in two-percent growth per annum or don’t bother coming. I actually heard them say that. Alright, and they believe anyone’s money is as good as anyone else. They will not move on change until they can say show us how to make money out of this or show us how to destroy a competitor. I actually heard them say that. They believe that the fallback position is the green transition, but because they haven’t done it yet, they’re still doing the ICE system, and they haven’t done it yet, they actually haven’t worked-out that there are some practical limitations that really needed to be addressed.”

    Also interesting comments starting at about the 33:30 mark.

    It seems, as you might imagine, that growth is the primary concern of the bankers, a way to “make money”. The cancer won’t give up. “Show us how to destroy a competitor” – the poor useless eaters Pfizered to death, fertilizer for the eternal green shoots of growth. Putin and Russia are next.

  52. It seems that both organic and rRNA humans spend a lot of time and energy building and occupying cells connected by distribution infrastructure. Why is that? I seems more important at the level of the organic cell where levels and numbers of molecules cannot be allowed to vary from an ideal. The metabolism must be enclosed. And also it is a space managed for homeostasis. I suppose too that the technological cell serves similar purposes providing a controlled environment for metabolism or work. Inside the cells humans can work on the information and come-up with new ideas for products and ideas for the growth of new cells. What for? Probably for no other reason than there is a continuous supply of energy for dissipation for those that do. Any long interruption in the dissipation of energy and you disappear from the scene or fall off the stage into death or extinction. And humans have evolved to mostly be in cells. That’s why people busy themselves building cells, planning new products and working in cells, because their cut of the energy flow can supports a home cell and provides food for all their little homey organic cells. Even the farmer works in a cell on wheels.

    The little RNA in organic cells began creating multicellular organisms that needed distribution and waste disposal systems. And then after billions of years of relative ecological stability, due to a confluence of repurposed organs, the human organism was selected by evolution to inhabit its own cells and use an additional set of information. The technological cells, full of bustling human RNA, spread everywhere. The new technological enzymes or tools produced by the cells and their humans worked wonders at digesting the natural world and in accessing the energy rich deposits from days gone by. More cells, more distribution and more complexity was invented, like pet rocks and doggie sweaters, anything to get a cut of the energy. And then it became clear that creating all of those cells that provided support for all of those people may not have been a very good idea, especially since the energy it depended upon was limited.

    And then there was not enough of a cut of energy for the average human RNA to afford a home cell or a car or food. They loaded everyone down with glucose receptors but there was no longer enough glucose in circulation. Cells began to die or go bankrupt. RNA that spent their whole young lives in the nucleolus preparing for work and wishing to create more lucrative complexity, had nothing to do. The lights went out and the homeostasis thermostat no longer worked. Leaders wondered what to do with all of the excess human RNA and the dead cells that soon littered the landscape. And just as all seemed lost a virus was born and many of the RNA began to wither and die and their cells were put out of business and more glucose receptors were handed-out for free. But unfortunately the leaders put the final nail in the coffin by trying to establish a surveillance and control system that would monitor every RNA and every cell and organelle, an incredible addition of complexity right when it was completely unaffordable. And then the lights went out for good and the remaining organisms were once again on even footing in a recovering ecosystem.

Even though we are capable of building a broader awareness of reality, most people will be totally caught by surprise as the starvation commences and will be busily at work when the heart stops and the glucose/oxygen stop arriving at the office/factory door. Then the human RNA will panic and run around in circles until their own remaining energy is depleted.

    “In the pursuit of its impossible techno-utopia, not only is the technocracy setting itself up to fail, but in the process it will inflict untold hardship on those it deigns to rule. And the worst of it is that by the time failure becomes obvious – most likely when the technocracy itself experiences some of the hardship it is exposing on others – it will be too late to prevent all of those other crises from overwhelming us.”

    It makes one think of ghost cities and highways to nowhere. Build it and by some magic of the universe energy will come. Building more technological complexity can only put us deeper in the energy hole unless the “techno-utopia” will be used to squeeze the life out of much of mankind through various culling operations and consumption controls. Maybe that’s where we’ll end-up, with a class of stakeholders owning robots that build things that only robots and billionaires need. Mankind and its varied supportive structures will be obsolete and superfluous and an unsupportable burden that must be cleared away to make room for the “Great Reset”. Those humans that stick around will have to be chipped or otherwise altered to fit-in with the new paradigm.

I have to say, bluntly, that Britain is travelling in a direction that can have only one outcome. Leaving the EU isn’t the cause of these problems, and it’s likelier that the causation is reversed, i.e. that these problems led to “Brexit”. Rejoining wouldn’t be a fix, seems politically implausible, and couldn’t restore the previous terms of membership.

    There’s something intrinsically self-destructive in the UK. The balance of power (between interest groups) is faulty and antagonistic. The economic model is a busted flush, but is adhered to because it is of benefit to some sectoral interests. The doctrine of self-interest – frankly, of greed – has taken over. The public has been duped into, or has sleep-walked into, acceptance of the shoddy.”
