Uncertain Walkway

I  don’t know if the behavior of Homo sapiens requires external governance.  Could be that Hs is poorly defined and in fact sapience isn’t required to be human.  Or, most are humanoidal and thus knowledge of H sapiens’ needs may not be relevant.  Either way, some sort of external standards and control over behavior seem to be needed.  These things are named by Isms and Cracys.  As you fully known, Little Humbucker, Humanoid presence is only a speckle of a moment in time.  Do these things matter?  Starbucks has added six flavors of Kombucha to its menu, so that brings the significance into focus.

Share The Wealth



The amount of mediocre creativity out there is proportionate to the number of high-functioning humanoids.   Some recognize the Truly Great Humans, most don’t.  Among those who do recognize Human, some seek to approximate Human.  The Attentive Humanoid.


Is there any sin greater than being nonattentive?  Perhaps being an aggressive idiot, but the available evidence shows increasing that’s most of the homo sapiens (now there’s a misclassification, Stooge – go look up what sapiens is) so that’s not really a classification or a despicable attribute.  It’s just one of those areas where bypassing Darwin is bringing a swift end to H.s..


Say there, Spanky, have you recently heard Death and the Maiden?

rest stop


Because there was a concern that working all the time wasn’t realistic, there had to be a day of rest.  Or so the legend goes.  The place of rest is all around us, can’t you see it there, Calvin?  It has to be made, and that is work but that is the satisfaction also.  What is rest without work?  and how is anything work?  So what is the reason to consider rest?  Happiness isn’t given, rather it’s earned and earned through effort.  As restful as this garden is, more happiness is given to its owner by the daily trimming, cleaning, raking, building and rebuilding, than anything about the space itself.  LazyBoy, go home.

The Line Between


It’s always the temptation to box the world, make it black or white.  Once that task is done, it’s time to start the arguments, regardless of how mindless it might be.  Some cry out that the world isn’t black and white but we should think of everything in shades of grey, and maybe that’s what humanoids should do.  But not strive for.  For you see, Little Sassafras, the world is actually dark and light, black and white.  But it’s not a sharp line if one gets down to it.  The division is granular and overlapping and even within each area there might be areas that aren’t as pure as one would like.  Perhaps those who have been the true contributors to Human, the DesCartes, the Feynmans, the Bachs, the vanGoghs – see the black and whites clearly and for what they are and in doing so did not fear them.  What about Newton?

Vinyard 1

Through this gate is the old vinyard, my dear Suturethrower.  Why did it cease?  notice the lack of sunlight?  when is the last time this planting saw the sun?  when is the last time you saw the sun?  Are you confusing the  light emitted by your electronic crutch as the sun?  the Son?  I believe we are letting our civilization rot on the vine with this substitution over the past decade or so.

Along the road

Bearing Crosses

At some point it will come to an end, that is the very essence of time.  things that have no beginning can have no end, and therefore exist independent of time.  for everything else there must be a beginning and an end, whether it’s a garden or a humanoid.  Crosses are our symbol.  there is the straight up and down, you start somewhere and you end somewhere and it’s a linear path.  Crossing that path there is some alternative you encounter – do you go left or right?  In either case it’s still a dead end.

Which came first, the cross or the religion?
