Iron age of Pisces enters now its end :
Ominous, an uncertain swing begins past our exponential peak
lost out of water thrashings start of fish that’s done its leap.
The death throws of application in what seems powerful
and the pretence of agency in forging our destiny.
Yet, still we hold to steel, the promise of prosperity in what Prometheus stole
the “know how” of “can do” that we think, as self or identity, we do.
But not what it is or how it actually happens, not why or what for, nor who actually does
not who works in and consumes, pollutes and populates, the environment.
How then will there be sustainable water, for fish to flop back into ?
From the mould of the Bronze age hold, Iron age rage leapt Spartan red with institutionalised discipline and order into Roman bureaucratic power, carrying the legacy of brittle control in their true colours of rusty decay.
The candle like light of Enlightenment’s glow, cut calmly through the dark cool of curtained rooms bound by the moulding bindings of Classical text.
Then, precisely and certainly as a forged iron pointed blade, the honed lights of direct sense with inferred abstraction naively applied, cut, pierced and pinned empirical more and more of “aspects of Reality”, of real things in the real world of Reality.
Axled and turned, levered and geared, countless cogs and cables, pinned poles and panels, bevelled belts and bolts, steamed and steel-ed, then wired electric and fuelled by petroleum, towards a leap beyond the apparent kinetics of vision and mechanics of matter, apparently past their relevance and our reverence in innocence, with the relative reference of the speed of light, before which was what is still apparent and intuitive for us.
Many times global and astronomical now our technology, but mechanics still must inter-phase intuitive, in what’s nuclear, agriculture, manufacture, finance and transport, with bodies animal plant and microbes, in air soil and water, of life and death on Earth.
But communications tele-ed (at a distance) quantum and with computation, manna manifest apparently from theoretical fields and simulation, seeing-value-having beyond the matter of relativity and the kinetics of vision, button pressing still exponentiates the polluting processing proposing and purchasing, though population post-exponential, as programmes propagate their own fields and development.
Considerations now environmental, infused of plastics and the chemical industry, saturating radiational fields of communication, entangled by countless cross-meshed cables connecting stations of mechano-electro-computerised automation and hard ware, inter-phased with supposedly autonomous input-ees and output-ees, the contributing and consuming customer-y citizens of the human state delivery service, system and its state, being both empirical (measured and tested by) and conditional of environment, dependent on a developing technology with past appliances that must go to waste : We must understand being part of our Whole Who helps make up the environment that is Earth – our Whole is of the environment.
With computational artifice and artificial intelligence the Turing test tests machines to trick the panel for intelligent independence and creative agency, the realising decider being the intelligentsia supposedly knowing the difference and how to test and tell, computation from intelligence, programme from agency, automation from autonomy, the human operator, observer, receiver and input give-er, is also pressed to be the give-ee of judgement.
Give liver life through liver’s fissure – our nature is marked by nurture through placenta and from birth on : Shatter now the exponential tsunami, its shimmering and shivering reflections of delight and fright “I scream – ice cream”, scream past solid frozen state real and real estate our Iron pre-Aquarian age consumer icing and creamed currency urban : Be born past dawning of Age, iron itself cut our umbilical tie of applied empiricism and its “know how”, beyond our consumer-y choosing of best fit simulation price outcome cost emergent of own programmes self-generated numerously by the technology of can do.
There’s a Whole Being Who is human, of Reality, and of Whom we, as self or identity, are a projected part, projected that is through our Central Nervous System, with other parts including our deepest, most close, mystic and profound, distant and superficial sense, of the world, others and our self, past present and future. All that is too much or lacking, and too much and more that we are or not, our sense and notion of being and doing, coping and consuming, processing holding and expelling, are parts of our Whole, Who of Reality is, does and lives, among other Wholes of Reality, in the real world on Earth of Reality.
As Earth exists, our Whole lives and Reality is, we may look to a relation as part with our transcendent and part-less Whole, of Whom both our everything of experience and our all that is self are part.
He or She is gendered, genealogical and generational with genes, an individual of Reality, in the real world on Earth and of Reality among other Wholes.
