Fascism with a Human Face.
It is not so there are no certainties, it is that it is an absolute certainty that there are no certainties. It is not only true that the test of knowledge is an acute and cultivated awareness of how little one knows (as Socrates knew so well), it is true that the unbounded areas and fields of one's ignorance are now expanding in such a way, and at such velocity, as to make the contemplation of them almost fantastically beautiful.
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch 22 (p.420)
The Commander unzipped
the public spine of a taikonaut
and thrived therein;
a golden ticket ride aboard
the People’s Space Ship...
a brief Borneo sojourn,
collecting articles; Hunt and Gather.
Ultimate terminus, the legion landed
a Communist craft in Chile*.
Ladling out a teaspoon
of dark matter from his tooth
The Commander dolloped
dense tar obscurity;
boring a passageway thru the
centre Left of the failing world.
The embryonic sack of an Orang-utan
is stretched transversely over
an earthen exit wound - Spy Hole;
inquisitive homo sapiens peer thru,
avaricious lust-packed eyeballs
view the virus of revelation.
An abhorrent fallacy (Science)
supplanted religious witlessness,
this nasty model now usurped
by the horror of mental amplitude.
At the edge of the universe,
there was a mega-mind
projecting mass consciousness.
this interstellar thinker is familiar,
known to us all as ______;
an unpleasant cognizance
warped by astronomic experience.
a symptom of cosmic psychosis,
the chaotic degradation,
the continuum is understood.
Israeli and Iranian Weapons
of Mass Destruction
( bombs blessed with zealotry and fanaticism )
Humankind desired a new mode
a new-fangled trail blazer (head)…
reality required a rethink.
superstition and scientific redundancy
humanoid diaspora universality.
