If any of my ~3:30 AM posts are weird, it is because in meditation, I often meditate on honor in the order of molecules, or on their larger counter parts:

The order of the red-hot mantle atop the core that honors its place in outer space, to stretch out some magnetized poles and produce rotations so that each layer of core and mantle and crust can move and bubble and produce rocks and ash and dirt and flint and chert.

I like the order of spores held close by ferns and lichens and moss which, with the help of the fungi, speed up the return of fallen branches and leaves, decomposition to give the forests that earthy smell with fruiting bodies to feed the sticky snail so he can, in a rip and crack then feed the joyful scrubjay with strength to fly and fill the forest with his talkative calls.

The order of the two Hydrogens paired with the one Oxygen, floating around sometimes tied, sometimes loose, mixing here and there with salt and sand and quenching roots and throats, recycling their dances over and over and tiring not at all.

I am not here to impress anybody. If I followed you, don't take that as an automatic that I endorse your world views. More likely than not, it means I found some goodness of logic in something you wrote in one of your areas of expertise.

Most words have opposites; anarchy is a bad opposite of most good things: it seeks to confuse and distract.

I'm a builder, not a destroyer.

I will always honor order where it orders best in nature, never the fickle, flaky ways of emotional humans and their egotisms and cliques and clubs and pissing contents and hangups and rages and wishful entitlements.

It's better to start the day with an honoring of order and its BFF, accountability.
