Your Own Personal Apocalypse

Mark Morford -SFGate

- Notes & Errata

Your imminent apocalyptic death

It's just around the corner. Any minute now. No, really

the last four paragraphs

There is only one thing we know for certain, and that is everything is uncertain. Scientists are absolutely sure only that something dramatic and life-obliterating will sure as hell happen again. This is just the way the planet rolls. It's all a matter of when.

We can hardly wait. I mean that quite literally. So fascinated are we with such potentially lethal phenomena that we often seem to invite them in, offer up our wrists to the universe, somewhere subconsciously hoping, craving to accelerate the whole shebang. It's just so mesmerizing.

Global warming? Killing the oceans? Millions of pounds of recalled industrial meat? E.coli outbreaks in our cookie dough? We are not merely tempting fate. We are in happy collusion with fate in the planning of our own demise, proving that we love nothing more than to mess with nature far beyond her thresholds of respect and courtesy. Why? Simple: We can't wait to see how it all ends.

Maybe we know, deep down, that we sort of deserve it. Maybe we sense how we as a species are not really long for this world. Maybe we know, on a molecular level, that life is not meant to have any sort of real stability or permanence, that all is transitory, deliciously futile, so utterly and completely meaningless in every way as to be, well, deeply profound and eternal. What's not tempting about that?

Never known weather quite like it before, never seen folks grooving on each other like it before, never seen so many young people getting limbs blown off for the sake of the cultivation of poppies. Its the old chestnut about the protection of lucrative consummables, "we won't get fooled again." HA HA.
Death is the separation of a liver from its life, be it martyr, road crash victim or mass seperatism due to flu or apocalypse, makes no difference, none at all.
The cause of death gets folk excited, morbidly interested in the cause of their own eventual demise.
Fuck you god for laying the death trip on us, fuck you for being so clever. Fuck the apocalypse, fuck death.

That'll be the cider, coupled with a badass attitude.

Ho hum.

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell

war is terror
