"Nature is so complex and its interactions so dynamic that the idea that science could ever understand it all is utterly laughable. We can understand the more simple things that we do to interfere with it: to degrade it, to wreck it. But we can never understand it. It is beyond our comprehension.

The Indian cultures that I know have said that nature is a great mystery. It is so complex, so great, so above us, that we should never be so arrogant to think that we can understand even a little bit of it. But we can understand our nature. We can understand the profit motive. We can understand wrong thinking." ~John Mohawk

A device capable of moving across an open space 3.5 "football fields" in under one second.

Yet somehow able to remain silent and windless?


they realize what that means for their doom.

If they realize anything at all.

There are some weights and some anti-weights.

There are some good energies, and some great.

The ethical sentient's first gift of blockage:

It's true.

No Republicans dwell anywhere anymore!

Gotta get used to that.

Life has many colors. White was not a first.

Tolerance is not optional.


"Decolonization" on a continual basis can be punishing, for sure. But it is required for proper perspective.

"As predicted"

Fearful babies who can't even fathom of accepting their punishment ... they lacked courage.

The universe has many places for disgrace, and they are far far far from any beauty.

Just ordered 450 stickers with the new design.

"Turn 45 0ff"

Get it?

Been making student loan payments of $456.66, too.

Out of school ~14 years and I still have to make payments for that "Accountancy" education while I live in a WORLD WHERE THE WORST FINANCIAL CRIMINAL FAMILY EVER DOESN'T GET HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS LONG.

What are they teaching students these days about their education? What about ethics?

I refused to join criminal empires after I graduated.

I worked in bakeries and pizzerias and restaurants and sandwich shops and coffee shops.

Lived homeless in my car.

The first thing the EVIL CRIMINAL EMPIRE did when getting elected was try to take out the Ethics office. (GAO)


Burn the patriarchy.

@indie If magic is just science we don't understand yet, there is more magic in the world every day -- we collectively understand more and more, so individually we have less and less of the picture.

The scientific picture, at least. We certainly never stop growing and learning throughout life, hopefully unraveling some of our personal mysteries.

Nice icon, by the way! Are those yours or an entry to the design challenge?

@kris Thanks! This is the winner of the design contest's artwork; he did a great job and has been paid.

We stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize your thinking: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the most valuable asset you can have as the world continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty colonial systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls.
