    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    It must have been twelve years ago.

    I was sitting in the Retro Cafe down at Salamanca Place here in Hobart. And I looked around, and it dawned on me that everything I could see had been made by us. Except when I looked up, the clouds, though we fiddle with them too.

    Every little thing, we made it, we planted it, we made it more, more…

    The gravel inbetween the paving stones. The sandstone warehouses built to store whale oil. The london plane trees (I think they're from Iran). As well as the more obvious cars and ships and silos.



    We made it more amenable to us and nothing as far as I could see was natural. It's natural for us to do this, but it's not natural. It's in our nature to make it so, so, unnatural.



    What happened to nature?

    We ate it.

    Yum.

    .having done to death the word as lord, bighead begins again to find that typing is not •how you say

    ?unplaced

    .the ego is a place we escape through talking about me again

    •well, you see, right there, right there

    .escape is not possible, much like desire, it detests stability

    ?but what could be more stable than me talking about me

    •yes but you're trying to connect…

    •hey, that was a thought not a spoken word !GET OUT OF MY HEAD
