Father Mapple’s Commandments #1

My dear Globatron brethren and sistren, I have been thinking lately about the nature of law-giving.  Anybody who has been around our temple for any time knows that this is a constant fascination for me.  I have been meditating on how it is that such things operate, like the 10 commandments, The Code of Hammurabi, […]

Father Mapple’s Sermons #1

When I have facilitated the liberation of one soul besides myself, then I have repaid karmic debt of my own liberation. When I have facilitated the liberation of two souls, I have increased the good in the universe. When I have instructed these souls to do as I have done, then I have made myself […]

Letter to the Last Generation

Dear Girls, You helped me through life. Through living. When things got hard I would look at you and feel your infectious energy and know that life was worth it. That all the trials and tribulations were for a reason. We have gone through a lot. Health care issues. Unemployment. Relocation. Wars. Global Warming. The […]

Ode to Greedy Greg

My dearest Greg, You, like so many in our time, having seen a speech from Wall Street, the movie, have made a mistake that many 10 year olds of my generation used to make, wanting to dress up like Darth Vader for Halloween…Because you see, Gordon Gekko, representative of human greed as a source of […]

The End is Near

Hold onto your ankles boys and girls…we are getting ready to really see if there is a God, if there is anything like justice in this world…because according to the experts, it’s going to get real deep, real soon, so grab ahold of whatever reserves of courage and faith that you got and get ready […]

My little girl is two years old. She must watch television. Maybe it is a drug to her? Maybe it is her third parent or friend? I’m not sure but she does seem to need it now. My wife asked how her day was yesterday and my little one held up her hand and said […]

Utopian Fantasies

The fact that most are unwilling to face is that the rise of technology has decreased dramatically the necessity of work, and thus the driving force of exploitation.  So, those in charge are finding it more and more difficult to justify the exploitation of the masses, but they are still succeeding in doing so by […]

Please Keep Trying

The sky is falling. The oil is burning. The car bombs are exploding. The terrorists are hiding. The troops are fighting. The politicians are arguing. The people are hurting. The religious are praying. The scientists are inventing. The unemployed are hunting. The rich are buying. The poor are starving. The sick are dying. The forests are disappearing. The deserts are growing. The ice is melting. The waters are rising. The environment is dying. But […]

Akbar’s Great Taboo…Dumb and Dumber

There are two questions that are just below the social consciousness that relate to the future of government and democracy.  First, we are very afraid to discuss in any detail how we ought to consider intelligence in relation to the rights of self-government in a democratic society.  In other words, in a country that is […]

Angels and Demons

It occurred to me this morning, while in prayer, that we find ourselves in the same position as the angels did at the time of creation. As God moves forward with the evolution of the machine, and we see this new work of creation rise in our midst, we are caught in the same dilemma as the angels. Do we bow down before this new creature

Nature’s nature…

Most thinkers create a division between the human world and what they call the ‘natural’, the world of plants, animals, weather, the cosmos, etc. We are often encouraged to avail ourselves of nature’s gifts, its beauty, as if this non-artificial form of nature, which is itself an artificial distinction had some moral superiority. So, when […]

The Tao of Akbar #2 – History 2.0

History is not dead. However, never before have so many people wanted to perceive it in the present. This is the paralysis we feel when confronting our place in the world, as we seek to inject ourselves into a perceived narrative arc, an allegorical illusion inculcated by a mechanized system of culture.  Many people call […]

It is Alive!!!!!

Hey Peeps, well, it’s happening folks, that’s right!  The singularity is now on the calendar mofos…This scientist Henry Markram recently announced he will create a fully conscious electronic brain by 2018…And I know, you are used to these numbers sounding futuristic, but that’s 8 years from now…HAL – lelujah…let me break it down a bit, […]

Fire in his underpants or in his shoes The thunder will strike when it is time for you. No matter how much you strip or what you wear. When your time is up, you will bare Witness to these pivotal times. When we kill each other over the drop of a dime. When our enemy […]

Isolation of the Thinker

After listening to the Terence McKenna talk embedded below I was reminded of something I wrote about 6 years ago, long before I knew of McKenna.  It verified my primary thesis about life which is: We are born with a truth inside of us, and our lives are about its articulation. The following is an […]
