Freedom is a Two-edged Sword

Essay by Jack Parsons, available here:


"Free, do you call yourself? Then I would hear your ruling thought, and not merely that you have escaped from a yoke.

Are you one of those who had the right to escape from a yoke? Many a one has cast away his last worth when he has cast away his servitude.

Free from what? What does that matter to Zarathustra! But your fiery eyes should tell me: free for what?

Can you give yourself your own evil and good, and set up your own will as a law over you? Can you be judge for yourself, and avenger of your law?

Terrible is it to be alone with the judge and avenger of one's own law. Thus is a star thrown into the void, and into the icy breath of solitude."

-Nietzsche; Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Peak Oil? Abiotic OIl?

Abiotic oil...


Considering what I have learned of the credentials of geology of late, (cf. Michael Cremo - Forbidden Archaeology) it would not surprise me in the slightest if this were true. But the oil world is subject to so much disinfo that one can never be sure... again people seem to need something apparently solid to identify with; Peak Oil (TM) fits the bill. Fuck dystopias, utopias, regrets, expectations, there is only NOW.
