A new flower is forming, an old one dies
The human race splits itself in two
As all face the exponential ingression of novelty into their lives
Complexity and diversity blossom outwards
One man fears that he has lost control
Another gives in to the idea that control is possible or even desirable
The human race divides
Not along a simple line, but a multi dimensioned belief fractal
Language is now viral
We all fight for the meaning of our words
Vengeance has become justice for those at sea
Does Mc Kenna’s ingression of novelty have a hold of you yet?
Can we see webot and wikilieaks as not just the record of the novel
But as novel themselves
What of the onset of species extinction, the increasing magnitude of major quakes, significant weather variability, 2012ism, and the rapture. Will the Agency actually appear on schedule, and do they know the Galactic Federation are on their way already. Will the blue kachina clash with the green flash, and light the ground under the sphinx’s feet. Do the Annunaki wear solar flares and reversible magnetic poles?
The random and the obscure are not profitable to the blind, and so can be ignored.
Extremism is not an outlier of opinion
It is the calculated use of intimidation, punishment, and violence to achieve one’s ends.
The bell is ringing and many can faintly hear
The choice can be made any time, but not for much longer.
Will those that choose control at all cost
Leave this planet as one hive-mind,
Will they allow the new rose to blossom, can they even stop it?
