As a consequence of the slavish “categoryitis” the scientifically illogical, and as we shall see, often meaningless questions
“Where do you live?”
“What are you?”
“What religion?”
“What race?”
“What nationality?”
are all thought of today as logical questions.
By the twenty-first century
it either will have become evident to humanity that these questions are absurd and anti-evolutionary or men will no longer be living on Earth.

If you don’t comprehend why that is
so, listen to me closely.

And it was at that age … Poetry arrived
in search of me. I don’t know, I don’t know where
it came from, from winter or a river.
I don’t know how or when,
no they were not voices, they were not
words, nor silence,
but from a street I was summoned,
from the branches of night,
abruptly from the others,
among violent fires
or returning alone,
there I was without a face
and it touched me.
I did not know what to say, my mouth
had no way
with names,
my eyes were blind,
and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings,
and I made my own way,
deciphering
that fire,
and I wrote the first faint line,
faint, without substance, pure
nonsense,
pure wisdom
of someone who knows nothing,
and suddenly I saw
the heavens
unfastened
and open,
planets,
palpitating plantations,
shadow perforated,
riddled
with arrows, fire and flowers,
the winding night, the universe.
And I, infinitesimal being,
drunk with the great starry
void,
likeness, image of
mystery,
felt myself a pure part
of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke loose on the wind.
Today, we need to get drunk like Neruda.

Amazon’s most amoral move yet is just around the corner.

Amazon has been a household name for years and has long been a huge corporation, but in the last 12 months it has become synonymous with global capitalism in new ways. Criticisms of its tax ‘scandal’ are partly responsible, though these…

Today’s Excerpt from The Digital Nomad Manifesto

The forms of dance that migrate across electronic dance floors, across the subset genres and across global geography, illustrate dance as a function of release, of communication, as a building block of a complex techno culture.

Silly look. On point music geekery.
