"Bat Shit Crazy" has arrived!

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

"Bat Shit Crazy" has arrived!

Walls are collapsing ... stuff just doesn't work the way it always has.

AI as the new "Messiah" is failing.

"Bat Shit Crazy" is a necessary consequence.

The psychic temperature of "peoplekind" is rising ... I'm Canadian ... the word "mankind" is no longer PC. :-)

Pilgrim this strikes me funny and sad at the same time, may I recommend a wonderful visual equivalent?

Film: 'Alphaville', a French film by Jean Claud Goddard, exemplifying the very ideas presented. Worth the watch, ( if You can find it )

Thanks Meno ... just read the Wiki page for the film.

What really struck me is the short ... very short ... timeline between emergence of the creative thought ...imagination ( Alphaville movie) ... and manifestation in our physical reality ... mind boggling speed. :-)

I'm encouraged by the film's ending ... love wins the day. :-)

What are the odds in a wager, the talk on the street is that the current economic maelstrom is the result of fear of impending inflation caused by overemployment, production and consumer spending- an overheated economy . ( across the board- political and Freudian)

What does that imply, that a good economy is bad for investment and speculation?

Can that Alpha Male be said to really have arrived? Or am I reading into him?

The word "maelstrom" is new to me ... for me ... appropriate word ... inappropriate context ... the stock market is only one of the ships in the following image. :-)

You close your post with the term "Alpha Male" ...

For me ... the "Alpha Male" is finally leaving ... the "Alpha Female" is on the threshold. :-)

Paraphrasing with Chinese terminology ... the era of "Yang" dominance is surrendering to "Yin" dominance ... the appointed time has arrived.
