N[O]ew Y[Z]ear

Caught these 2 twinning 'up' at 5.30 this evening after loading this post, though half an hour later the clouds covered the sky

Ecce!
all peoples divided against one another are
in their digressions
equally inverted
and self-deceived
in their respective
tampered-with standards.

The degree of self-deception
is proportional
to the width of the angle
of disgreement,
and the greater that angle of stress
the greater the anger.
The greater the anger,
the greater the susceptibility
to further propaganda -
a cancerous hate growth.

And all propaganda is false
if merely by misemphasis.
It is false because
it approaches diametric unbalance,
which scientifically speaking
is chaotic.

Chaos is erosive , explosive, shattering,
and therefore the antithesis
of the only potential survival means
of homo sapiens:
through the harmonic integration of knowledge
whose kinetic is uni-versal.

ISTOLETHIS [think X-Files]
from Richard Buckminster-Fuller's collection of thoughts:
NO MORE 2nd-HAND GOD.

Cheers!

A charming post.
'No more 2nd hand God' - absolutely love it!
2009 'reincarnation' - Great way of putting it

Happy new or recycled year to you.
