Civilisations,

obsessed with produce
produce only
mass-destruction.

Cultures
obsessed with achievement
achieve only
mass-destruction.

Religion

is a strange kind of
sewer
containing a great deal of
blasphemy.

Slaves of Nevermore

Humans are the only animals
obsessed
with their mortality.
And humans are the only animals
so unpleasantly intelligent
that they had to invent
constantly re-invent
morality.

GSOH

I am only as good
as my sense of humour.

How tragic it is
that humans are
humourless.

Anniversary

I have never had
and never will have
a television set.
So I did not see
the First Men
Walking on the Moon
forty years ago.

I was surely not
the only one
to murmur
"So what ?"
when I heard it
on the radio ?

This planet

is an amazing
conversation
which you and I
are stifling
to a sigh.

'Jouir'

is French for 'to rejoice'.
The difference between
Anglo and Franco
(Lewis and Louis)
is encapsulated
by the respective words
for 'ejaculated':
come, and joui.

Rather than being the only

moral mammal,
I suspect that humans are
the least moral mammal.

Our 'superiority' inheres
in our immorality.

The human

is an animal which invents
narratives, now called myth,
religion, fact, understanding,
science etc.

What we call soul is just
an aptitude for narrative.

This is what makes us mad,
bad and dangerous to know
- especially if you're a wolf.

And beyond the narrative of the
Sixth Extinction, bacteria
are Lords of Creation

who lived before the First Extinction.

'A monk

shall think of himself
as evil and worthless.'

In democracy's

escalating fraud
the rich extract
and the poor
far, far away
expire:
half a million every day

while human population
increases exponentially.

The cleverest people

are those clever people who
can make the stupid
less stupid.

If there have ever been any

for stupidity constantly
cleverly
re-invents itself.

The self

is a machine
for telling half-convincing
stories
to consciousness.

People

(especially the French)
eat fish
like there's no tomorrow

- for the fish.
