Exponentially Nothing and Exponentially Everything

Posted by on Nov 9, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word, Philosophy, Science, Transhumanism, Truth

Consider a wavy, two-dimensional surface, with many different spheres glued to its purpose —one sphere at each surface point, and each sphere attached by another joint. This geometric construction is a fiber bundle, with the spheres as the “fibers,” and the wavy surface as the “base.” This is what holds everything you know to be […]

Random Acts of Kindness

Posted by on Nov 7, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word, Climate Change, Peace, Philosophy, politics

The world changed today as I turned on my TV. There were random acts of kindness all over the screen. For the first time in history these things became news for me. An eagle scout built a nature trail in a local park close by. A family adopted a child, and gave her a new […]

The Soul of Infinity

Posted by on Nov 3, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word

The Soul of Mankind Hangs from a line That is held in place by you and me. As it floats in the eternal sea. The rock that it uses as a boat Is floating through our universe. This soul is the only thing we have As we argue over the words we see. There can’t […]

View from the Ivory Tower

Posted by on Nov 1, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word

As I sit in my Ivory Tower I think of all the lost potential. How this term is thrown around loosely To apply to anyone searching for sequential Logical ties that bind us to our ongoing social issues. That can help us grow Out of the cycles of the abuse of power and money. Dissent […]

Adams to Jefferson #3

Posted by on Oct 31, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word, Correspondence

We are too big to fail, my dear Thomas. That’s what we have become. A country hooked on media. Fed by our appetites we succumb. To the false idol of the dollar And what we think it is worth. Binary code floats through our space Hoping to make its place. Into our virtual bank accounts […]

Adams to Jefferson #1

Posted by on Oct 27, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word, Correspondence

I think of our friendship and how we have grown. How we have fought side by side together in past New York subways. Sang our songs of Amazing Grace for not a penny we would take to own. We were young men back then and we wanted so much change. You were always able to […]

They Snatch Us….

Posted by on Oct 25, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word

When no one is looking and no one is around. Walking home from school, at home, at a game or around town. Our children disappear in a second and are never to be heard from again. If we are lucky they are found in a few years after having lived through hell. These predators are […]

Will you light a torch for me?

Posted by on Oct 21, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word, healthcare, politics

To be honest, I’m too busy right now. Life is going by much too fast. I want to help change things. But at the end of the day I’m out of gas. I know I voted for this Hope and Change. And I know how much we really need it. But can’t the government fight […]

Poetimage – a new word is born

Posted by on Oct 19, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word

Po-et-image [poh-it-im-ahzh]: (pronounced with a french ‘age’), like collage, like mirage, like massage, -noun Poetry that is supported, more deeply explained or confused, by the addition of  imagery. Nice Globatron shout out from Tristan Harris, the Co-founder of Apture, Globatron’s weapon of choice. Without Apture the invention of Poetimage would not have been possible.  Long […]

For the money and debt they must pay.

Posted by on Oct 17, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word

I am eavesdropping as the commercials play. Buy gold and you will mold your fortune into a mountain. When we have nothing. No money,  just debt. No property,  just a lease to pay That keeps us less stressed each day.

I am a bald eagle

Posted by on Oct 13, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word, politics

I am a bald eagle. Proud and strong and free. Angered when provoked. Flying over thee. I am a fundamentalist Christian. I worship during the Super Bowl. Fighting for family values. Praying for your soul. I fight for your gun rights. Buy an assault rifle if you wish. It’s your right as a citizen. To […]

I am a strip mall

Posted by on Oct 10, 2009 in 2009, Choken Word

I am a strip mall. Long and vacant. Asking to be be occupied. Everything is on sale. I am a Super Wal-Mart. Filled with imported goods and food. Electronics and guns for all to buy. Diapers and candy too. I am an eight-lane highway. Hauling ass is my game. I’m always in a hurry to […]
