There is nothing more important than understanding what conditions are necessary – for optimal human experience – and relentlessly (re)creating them
The truth at times is unspeakable. It most often is. The truth, reality, best expresses its unspeakability in absolute poetry: silence.

I joined a variety of communities, communities of the dead. Communities where the dead wanting to tell no tales have epitaphs speak for them.
I am a deepfake, a pseudo-being. I morph my persona and don a myriad of masks to fit whatever role I find myself in.
It is our human duty, even purpose, to recognize and refuse adherence to a standard of humanness that is contrary to our be-ing, individually, and collectively
The be-ing, as it grows, realizes and embodies the genius of its self, its humanness, and in so doing opens up more horizons for realizing even more of its self.
There is no humanhood to speak of since it can be simulated. The technologists know; they orchestrate the simulacrums.
Humans are not machines; it is not by their utility that their humanness must be qualified but by the simple fact of their be-ing.
Machinespeak is a case of “a metaphor gone mad!” “From the proposition that humans are in some respects like a machine, we move to the proposition that humans are little else but machines and, finally, that human beings are machines. And then, inevitably to the proposition that machines are human beings. What is most significant about this line of thinking is the dangerous reductionism it represents.”
