The gears are spinning faster

Now that the cruft has begun to dissipate and fall away from the site, I am gearing up for a revival of creativity and writings, read on for a taste.

I’ve been away for quite a while, mostly because of work, partly because I couldn’t find the yearning to milk my creative outlet for personal worth. This has changed. My life has changed. I am once again in tumultuous times, wiser and more mature than ever, and yet the feeling of lack of control continues to pervade my thoughts. Part of it has to do with current world politics, war and the overall sense of helplessness that comes with realizing that the wheel of fate continues to roll forward unabashed.

Another part of me feels that I can take control of everything in my life and move forward to my future and embrace whatever I become, but illusions of grandeur cloud my path. I apologize for the metaphors. I find it much more difficult to convey my thoughts in simple terms these days as I have abandoned earlier theories of chaos and disorder. Even as the world continues its decay into lunacy and blood-letting, the signs of order and harmony become more apparent, each action bearing its own weight in future reactions. Newton’s 3rd law can best help explain this:

III. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Consider the following: you may have learned about stocks and supply and demand in finance classes, you may also be away of the 3 states of price movement; Those three possibilities are positive, negative and neutral. These states are the basis of ALL mathematics, and thus the basis of the Universe itself.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

In nature as well as the universe, there is a common shape found everywhere, the spiral. Ancient Greeks studied it with vigor and it was renewed during the Renaissance, but interest in spirals has tapered since then. I don’t claim to be mathematically astute regarding spirals, but a certain train of thought has haunted me for some time now regarding them. Take for instance the butterfly and the hurricane hypothesis, it states that a butterfly flapping its wing in China can start (or add to) a chain reaction resulting in a hurricane in Florida. This is entirely possible and cannot be discredited. However by that same argument, a moth flapping its wing in Africa could start (or add to) a chain reaction resulting in the diffusional of the same hurricane. Every positive or negative influence in the world IS interconnected, and by that reasoning, using math would allow us to calculate these reactions and even predict future reactions, as increasing energy (outward spiral) or decreasing energy (inward spiral).

I dedicate my time to attempting to decode this mystery.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
