I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City

Posted: November 14, 2012 in Uncategorized

The biggest mistake promulgated by all the movies, and the internet, and well pretty much EVERYBODY is that zombism is a virus.  It’s not a virus.  It’s fucking EVOLUTION.

LOOK:  Humans have, almost without fail, created multiple vectors that were all ultimately going to wipe them out. Industrial pollution.  Environmental pollution.  Anthropogenic Global Warming, clear-cutting of rainforests, over-harvesting of the oceans, , general dumping of all of our crap in places that shouldn’t have to deal with it.  With the colonization of near-space, Space Junk.  Gaia is a hippy-trippy concept, but it does coalesce an effective concept; that the Earth is a biosphere that has its own integrity, and its own abilities to respond to threats.

And in the early parts of the 21st Century, it did.

I recall when the conversions started. Or at least, I mostly recall it, and I have some documents on my Macs that help me remember.  I confess that much of what I can still process is mostly immediate.  If i need to remember, I need to hit the servers.  And I sometimes wonder whether these couple of G3s and iMacs are sufficient to keep the memory of….

…of …..what the hell?  What’s the  point?

Because come on, I am no longer even arguably human.

 

However, I am bereft at the idea that Harry Nilsson will not be able to write songs for the …

    Zombie songs with the early Nilsson. Strings, harmonies, pianos, each one only 2 minutes long.

    Half-intelligent primates are half-intelligent.

    I find the entire concept…questionable at best. Evolution is far too slow, too random to act as an effective response to accelerated species self-destruction. The reason that a virus is so often employed is that it acts quickly across large portions of the population, and therefore can actually act on an even faster time-scale than the events that are cited as leading to the demise of humanity.

    I actually think it’s more interesting to realize that none of these events will actually eliminate homo sapiens as a species, but rather will serve to reduce the ability of the planet to support their population in such large numbers. With a reduction of the human population by 80-90%, we will see small enclaves of humans in localized highly beneficial ecosystems living in a fashion that has a much smaller impact on the ability of their surroundings to support them. THIS is the evolution, perhaps not of the species, but of civilization, small tribes that can develop their own history and dogma, and perhaps take a new path into the future while giving their planet time to heal.

    Also, too, the Drake Equation:

    N = R* • fp • ne • fl • fi • fc • L

    The final term, “L” is the lifespan of an intelligent, communicating species. It is interesting to me that this might turn out to be a universally limiting factor, that it may be quite common for it to be a much shorter period than we might have assumed. Peak oil combined with Carbon Pollution at 350ppm suggests (at least to me) that the amount of available resources on a planet is roughly the amount that causes it to become unable to support large intelligent communicating populations. Just as the universe turns out to be of an almost perfectly flat topology (mostly as a result of cosmic inflation), it seems that there is a kind of elegant balance to these things…

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
