Once Again Either-Or ‘Thinking’ Queers The Pitch!
Mr Murdoch, of course, is unfortunate in that he does indeed resemble, rather, a clitoris or cock-knob that HAS been ‘sniggled’ a bit too often….
Whereas, for one, I — an old man otherwise, to be sure, in a similar condition to the gentleman’s — am not sceptical about climate change; but, certainly, I AM doubtful of the merit of very many, if not all, of these politicised highly-stylish yelps now going on, of, ‘Honey, do SOMETHING!’
‘The climate’ in fact is a seamless & polyvalent topos woven in a tissue of ensuing events going back to the formation of the planet; and, as the case may be, it WILL persist albeit only in a cloud of gas & piss to The END.
And, for all we actually (NB) might ‘think’ that we ‘know’, there also may be in play yet another, parallel episode now running, of the perfectly unexceptionable looming elimination by Nature of what is but the latest in a series of ‘successful’ dominant species to have infested the Earth, namely ourselves.
It should be clear that our disappearance will yield results JUST as interesting as our possible persistence.
Thus, and in ALL cases, the mature scientific personality will 1) resist the infantile rush to ‘get us some of that, there instant technology’; and 2) in an objectively adult manner, instead, actual well-integrated WORKING scientists will simply & modestly concentrate on collecting the data & passing IT on into the fabric of Space-Time for possible use to other nodes of Nature’s emerging self-awareness in the Universe.
When too many so-called ‘scientists’ pissed themselves the last few times around in the general rush to act out & play up, all we got was Zyklon-B & the A-bomb; so, acting more calmly & with dignity AS scientists in this case & in itself certainly would be a further gain in awareness, also.
And, in any event, while we may feel so very, very ‘special’ about ‘our’ dreary little scrap of ‘consciousness’, that may be only a trope by the distinctly flawed cerebral cortices of our species to ensure that individual breeding happens at least AHEAD of a morally equally worthwhile suicide.
But, there is no sign that ‘self-consciousness’ will stand as any longterm acquisition in any manifold biological or electromagnetic setup.
Mainly, it is the Ruling Case, accidents happen….
