I’m imagining periodicity standing constant as I camp out under the stars as far from the city as I can get. I’m being written up by a cop as I walk down an in-town, suburban sidewalk at 12:30 am. I’m minding my own business at 3 am in the same city, but in it’s urban core. I’m trying to get a compressor shut off outside my window at 4:30 am, a clear violation of municipal code, there in that urban core.

Aperiodicity is still a peak urban experience. As with that air compressor, its not necessarily a mountain peak of goodness.

The news of the world, the Congo for one of a myriad examples, tears at my insides. Humans are eagerly capable of behaving in utterly horrifying ways to each other for religion, commerce, and other forms of dominance. I often wonder if humanity as a whole is a cancer on the planet. We behave the same as a cancer. Consuming everything in out path without regard for the consequences.

I find it difficult to feel good about my species, my country, and myself as there seems no way to change the path of our greedy, ravaging natures. Religion is a huge factor as it fosters the wholly incorrect notion that humans are better than everything else and each group thinks it is better than the rest.

Our emotional selves need to evolve or we will wipe ourselves out. And maybe that that will be a good thing. Maybe humans are to the planet what a wildfire sweeping through a forest is; fire burns the accumulated detritus and then dies out, leaving fertile ash to nourish what’s left.

I believe that it is the first of many gifts that we overlook. I can understand a sense of ‘what’s the point’ especially as we live in a time of upheaval and logic seems to have gone out the window. When common sense is no longer common. I would recommend to you to get your hands on a bible and keep it by your bedside to read each night. I believe that there you will be able to see the world in the light of God’s litmus paper not in the light of religion, or organization, or groups but in a personal communication with our maker. Sleep well, as we pass through.
