"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Today's Elites

Socrates' Myth of the Cave and Hollywood

This morning we have been regaled by a conditioned response of our media analogous to a  abreactive mental breakdown.  Why? Because the unthinkable may be about to happen. Is it an all out nuclear war that would wipe out humanity once and for all? No. It's the death of ... Hollywood (gasp.)

What would happen if we were to be forced to actually face the political and economic lunacy that our "elites" have wrought upon us and this god forsaken planet? What if we could not sit, as it were, with ourselves chained to our illusory virtual world and were forced kicking and screaming (this is not hyperbole, judging from what I just witnessed on the boob tube's "infotainment" just now) to confront reality in the clear daylight? Remember Willy Loman, Hollywood?

Then would a new dawn arise wherein we would be intolerant of naught but the uplifting geniality and grace of beauty? Well, we know that the insatiable appetite for solutions to our manifold crises is a possibility at least. Let there be light. The light of thermonuclear fire and beyond. There is a way out.
