On Thursday, NASA held a press conference to announce that the recent TEGA experiment on board Phoenix had confirmed the presence of water in the Martian soil. Whist exciting, Phoenix scientists were expecting that result. However, behind the scenes, something else was being discussed and it had little to do with melting water… via...

The discovery of an organizational hyper-structure whose hierarchical contour defies our normal abstracting ability - (and yet can be detected by a colossal metaabstraction reported by Plato and surnamed by him Noesis) is a matter of unparalleled importance, for this hyper-structure seems able progressively more and more to subsume its...

A while ago I began to question everything that was emerging as common ground within our/my generation. We are all special, unique, hypocrites and most importantly always right. We are the exception to every rule, powerful but helpless and insecure. The internet has created grounds for multi-faceted identity like never before and its ability...

Your average 'alternative' 'underground' 'cult' summer booklist will name conservative corkers like William Gibson, Hunter S. Thompson, Ken Kesey, Aldous Huxley, Thomas Pynchon, Kathy Acker, Hubert S. Selby or Brett Easton Ellis. A 'real' underground list might add snotty punk-fashionistas like Stewart Home or Henry Rollins. But if you have read...

Just my thoughts at the moment. I'll probable re-write this at a later date but for now here it is. My attempt at defining reality. Man shapes his own reality, every man interprets what is real to him and what isn't. Similar to how some animals can only see certain colors, or have different eye physiologies. So the world is different from each...

On and on does the lattice grow, information flows, and our minds converge, into a single, fiercely independent, decidedly autonomous, highly intelligent, and self-propelling emergent metaverse, the infoverse. The infoverse is where we will live. And we need a home. A mutually supportive habitat of sorts; A mind habitat, an infotat for our...

Surely many of you are familiar with this conspiracy. Tied in closely with The Bilderberg Group, skull and bones, the UN, trilateral commission, world wide governments and mass slavery.

Part I The internet is not yours, it never was yours. I'm sorry, it just isn't. It is owned by large telecommunication companies that decide who does what with their infrastructure. Like any public infrastructure, users have to adhere to certain rules for the whole thing to function. The problem is it is easy to think that while spending...
