    Lyrics from

    Thank you - Alanis Morissette

    how 'bout getting off of these antibiotics
    how 'bout stopping eating when I'm full up
    how 'bout them transparent dangling carrots
    how 'bout that ever elusive kudo

    thank you India
    thank you terror
    thank you disillusionment
    thank you frailty
    thank you consequence
    thank you, thank you silence

    how 'bout me not blaming you for everything
    how 'bout me enjoying the moment for once
    how 'bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
    how 'bout grieving it all one at a time

    thank you India
    thank you terror
    thank you disillusionment
    thank you frailty
    thank you consequence
    thank you, thank you silence

    the moment I let go of it was
    the moment I got more than I could handle
    the moment I jumped off of it was
    the moment I touched down

    how 'bout no longer being masochistic
    how 'bout remembering your divinity
    ow 'bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
    how 'bout not equating death with stopping

    thank you India
    thank you Providence
    thank you disillusionment
    thank you nothingness
    thank you clarity
    thank you, thank you silence 𝆓

    Sparked by a good month of #Occupy movement, people are engaged against, networking against.

    Much of what people are against happens behind closed doors. Fine for private matters, but there are no private politics. There should not be. The people occupy - against. They do gain attention.

    The occupy movement has been criticized for:

    • not having an agenda - it has many

    • not having a leader - it has many

    but - that gives it diversity and resilience.

    Such energy may fizzle, and to keep momentum, people appear to aim their networking for:

    • replacing winner-takes-it-all financial casinos with a more sustainable social contract

    • bringing crony capitalists to justice, to stop their shredding of the social fabric woven from agreements and laws

    and the objectives may grow more diverse, as people gain freedom to pursue their own dreams, refine agreements in conversation and debate, and form their own groups forwarding their own causes and ideals, at best in mutual respect.

    Patterns will emerge, become signs of progress, and new social contracts may be drawn up.

    Direct democracy. Engaged Economy.

    This list may grow. What would you add?

    can you mine mine?

    My mine was mine, is mine, will be mine!


    do you mind, mind?

    Do you mind minding mind, mind?


    do you mind language bizarre, mind?

    “I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.“
    Could a 21st century knowmad take that oath?
    Truth is no longer carved in stone, or written in ink
    it flickers and flashes at the speed of light.
    “I don’t necessarily agree with everything I say.”
    - McLuhan

    Our courtrooms and governments, schools and churches
    all grew out of the truth of clocks and tidy rows of text
    the truth of assembly lines
    and butterflies pinned down in glass cases.

    But a new kind of truth is emerging from the logic of the net
    and it defies all logic.
    This is the truth of ecology and relationship
    the truth of hip hop and electricity
    and bodies dancing.
    In this web of instant information, truth is no longer a chain of facts but a collision of contradictions and co-incidences.

    Reason and logic have given way to image and emotion
    and truth has once again begun to unravel like a Zen poem.

    Things are not what they seem.
    Nor are they otherwise.
    - Lankavatara Sutra

    To which I bow in reverence, yet feel inclined to add:

    I acknowledge truth is relative and context matters.
    When you have evidence and facts - the victim and the blood,
    the suspect in fear, what will we hear?
    "The truth"? The suspect's truth? Our prejudice? Or something in between?

    Truth to me is akin to reality. In the end, based on agreement.

    Would you agree?

    Today, Marcomé followed me on twitter. Curious, I looked her up, then followed back. Here is why.

    She shares this video, among many other pieces of worded and wordless art that inspires ears to smile.

    The 10 Commandments of Mother Earth

    Enjoy - Marcomé.

    WSJ's Andy Jordan talks to currency renegades tired of big-government centralized cash, who make their own (legal) money systems.

    Hat tip @vencurrency , followed the link on Hubculture news page, this was the first and only link I opened there.

    RT @vencurrency The future of payments [WIRED]

    7 minutes video worth 15 seconds ad - what currency is that?
