The following post was written by me more than six years ago. I recently opened some material on my computer that I had forgotten about. My time capsule whose time has come.
The heartbeat of death
The virus of civilization
The unchanging rhythm of decadence.
The ebb and flow of our civilization is based on the dying signal of an element, the atomic clock of artificial time. Can a whole world composed of a variety of elements be run by one elements' rhythm of decay? Do we need this constant order by which to live? It is believed that the only constant is change, however, we have generated another constant, the second. The second never changes it is always exactly the same. The construct of ordered time and the probability of change are now in direct conflict. We have a paradoxical situation, two constants, change and order, co-habitating in chaos. How do we relate, being rhythmical creatures with our own constructs to the paradox? Could this be the crux of our emotional, psychological and physical detriment? We are alive because of a catalytic change in the relationship of elemental factors in our bodies. If no change were allowed to occur, natural life could not happen as some thing other than the origin from whence it came would not be allowed to occur as it would be different, and order does not allow variety. By the very nature of order, there is no room for change. Where there is no change, there is order, and the constancy of order is death.
If constancy of change brings on life and the constancy of order is death then time, as we have constructed it, the decay of an element to be more exact, is measuring the constancy of order. Does this not mean that we are regulated by death? If this is how we gauge our existence in the time-space continuum, then are we not robbing ourselves the very essence of life? If this is indeed the situation, then we are surely destined to a linear hell from which there is no escape.
Perhaps, there is a need for one beat that binds us all to a common thread. If we all act accordingly to our own plans, anarchy, so to speak, then how are we ever going to work together? Correct, you say? Wrong. The very nature of our beingness is dependent on our ability to adapt to chaos. If we are not allowed to respond to the natural elemental changes in the time-space continuum we are causing our being to become stressed as it were, performing against the very nature of ourselves, the universe.
When you cross nature with the wont for change you will create an order by desire. Desire that will lead you to a perversion of the natural. Let's say you possibly persuade a male tiger at 10:00 am, Thursday in November to mate with another tiger? Do you really believe this tiger will do it? Will the female tiger be able to respond to the artificial demands that are being made on her body, even if you train her mind in a controlled experiment, her body will reject the idea of procreation until it has regulated all of its hormones properly for conception. The only thing to do is to regulate her body's ability to adapt by intervening artificially via drugs or some other barbaric process. If you were to control every aspect of their mating you might perhaps, get the end result of procreation but the tigers would no longer be tigers, only an artificially induced phenomenon.
Thank you for reading my mind.
