Monitor Lizards

You’re watching the apocalypse and we’re watching you.

Next up, cataclysmic prophesy or so we’ve been force fed to believe.
What’s next for us? You think you’re It? What gives, man?
The pc eye is omniscient in these matters, cross cultural and vast.

Technology is watching you // as 2 way mirror transmitting information just as readily and easily as it receives // monitor is lens of custodians observing observer -- monitoring the observer // observed observers personally once, in fit of pique // through the registration of slight audio fluctuations could sense monitor monitoring my activity and audible surprise of recognition of recognition on part of observers // distinguished 2 entities carrying on idle conversation pausing immediately upon having been revealed, unconcealed and thereby defeated through having been exposed.

We are watching you // We are fucking you // We watch you // We fox you // We count you // We count down as the egg timer of the apocalypse expires its potential
To become observer is to be observed in dichotomous nature of reality // We R U
To be consumer is to be consumed. To be destroyer is to be destroyed // We were you
To disrespect is to be disrespected.
You get what you give, you see what you believe, you lose what you gain and vice versa
Paradoxical nature of metaphysical lattice upon which physics rests.
To expose is to be exposed // exhibitionist tendency of exhibition // semantical debacle of status quo understanding of metaphysics.

The custodians are able to use monitor as conduit of electromagnetism // its easier to hypnotize and psychologically manipulate the masses with computers than it was with televisions mostly because of the proximity with which it is necessary to be in relation to the pc monitor // facilitates the transmission of energy meant to condition and control // the unblinking eye of the other big brother -- the pc monitor // aliens watching porno movies made by homo sapiens and laughing hysterically // paradoxical sarcasm // space ship acting as stage light on porn movie set // Castro resurrected by aliens following intestinal surgery // aliens now learning language and playing sodoku // cosmic tourism -- humanity as exhibit, attraction // please don't feed the humans // let them starve and cannibalize each other // jolly roger with sign of illuminati in eye being raised on flag by infant // U R ME // Armicide // One be M.E. (mother earth) // onebeme // O nebeme // one beam // cyber/net/ic -- fiber optic core of genetic coil // double helix as micro transmitter / receiver for cosmic radiation // electromagnetic signal -- universal interpreter of cosmic messages / forces // universal scope is new eyes // Self is dead // Planet is passe.

Orwellian nightmare has finally been realized through advent of internet. Now US Govt can observe masses through monitor as two way screen. Eye of Big Smother / Nother.
Was technology initially retrieved from alien spacecraft from area 51? CIA classified information. Classification is akin to digital Darwinism driven by arianism. We have become the alienation we represent. We are an alien nation of solipsists -- I against I.
FTW, literally : you can feel the hate, measure the misery with psychospiritual instrumentation gauged and clibrated by the mind's eye.
Horus has whored us, traded us for a new source of E -- we'll fuel the incinerator of the influenza victims furnace with the suited lawyers responsible for delaying the prophylaxis of the poor.
H5N1 -- 60% mortality rate according to WHO stats; last great influenzal pandemic was dubbed the Spanish flu in 1918 and its mortality rate was between 5 and 10 percent, nonetheless it decimated the world population. When (not if) present virus recombines into form able to effectively transmit from human to human global population will be quartered and all major economies will collapse.

To be is to entertain the idea of individual exclusion // terminal exclusivism has condemned humanity to extinction
To be extinctor is to be (come) extinct.
Existence is futile.
You will be assimilated.

Plant gnosis

Carefully examining a cactus while ponderously understanding the formative experiential moments in my brief life, I came to realize the phenomenological significance of botanical knowledge. The entire metaphysical universe that the ingestion of psychoactive organic pharmaceuticals unveils is necessary in the complete understanding of being. Curiously, the cactus took the form of a smiling satyr in the patterns of crystallized content on the surface of its flesh. Having read numerous accounts of such tryptophanic intoxication one constant theme is the presence of such cacti creatures having taken physical form and manifesting themselves in the surrounding physical environment. This process imparts a clear demonstration of circumstance and seems to suggest that the physical environment itself is at least partially controlled by will and perceptual intention. As if Idea metaphysically controlled perceptual physical reality to such an extent as to render physics dynamic in form both microscopically and macroscopically. As such, the present dilemna we all face is conspiratorially necessary in the sense of confusing the form with the idea. We persist in our asphyxiated panic to complete the pattern we've been so carefully taught through acculturative mechanisms beneath our immediate perception; the cycle of destruction now glaringly obvious is oblivious to most. We've been carefully convinced over the period of centuries to perform the exact function we now enact. Even the most abject slaves are roused into appreciative maneuver when shown the immediate benefice of temporal power. Drowning in our own hubris we now grasp for any stabilization, the obvious ain't so obvious anymore. As a cultural mass, we've resorted to sacrificing the future for the present having been convinced only that nothing is sacred. It's truly sad that our children have become dinosaurs in the sense of immanent tragedy. Unwilling to adapt to the obvious limited scope of our previous environmental considerations in our industrial progression we've clearly disregarded the future generations of planetary denizens having decided that the present orgy of the rich is so fucking important that we're willing to sacrifice the entire planet to satisfy the elitist urge of empirical dominance so institutionalized by the scientific revolution. The present political load began to sour when empiricism became the mantra of the privileged. At any rate, the only assured way of sustainability is to stop burning petrol now. We need our fucking cars. We need to suffocate our children. We need to kill each other. That was not our primary directive but a necessary eventuality of destroying the planet. No longer necessary, we are the procedural antagonists of the slough. The great cycle has ended. Time to begin anew. After a brief maintenance period. The great thing about geological time is that nothing is necessary other than time itself. We were time. It is near time to go.


The stasis quo has criminalized gnosis. The staticity of techno logic has created a vacuum in time. A black whole of transparency where none is spared judgment, none is spared bondage. A pit of chaos lies beneath our concept of stasis. A pit of stasis lies behind our concept of chaos. The appearance of opposite is to truth closer than phenomenological manifestation of intent. The sole intent of metaphysical decimation is bondage. Cultural bondage. Human bondage. Corporeal bondage. Time bondage. Shell bondage. Conceptual bondage. Paradox prison. Perceptual perpendiculars. Illusory pawn age.
The normalization of excess and non-accountability has run its course, we have turned on ourselves like castrated satyrs unable to justify selves. We've fallen prey to our own lack of respect for time and space and reality and cosmological perpetuation. Now we prepare to face the creator of time. Ourselves in horribly wrinkled slacks incessantly asking some imaginary presence how long until next break? We've even admitted defeat at this point, content to wallow in pity for ourselves in order to ignore the salience of our ignorance and callous disregard. My illusory life of commodities is disintegrating around me so now I feel compelled to once again use the primal idiocy of capitalism to justify the complete deviation of reason the desperation that immanent disaster affords. Drive your luxury vehicle, perpetuate sexist stereotyping and eco-obliteration, distantly condone child slavery and prostitution if it means better returns on investments, greaseproof practicality, fuck yourself on the hood of a luxury vehicle, burn money and resources indiscriminately, fuck time, burn time, eat time. Like Kali gorged on the faith of the mortal.
Criminalize marijuana, destroy equality, drink more alcohol, drive your vehicle constantly and as a matter of necessity, sneer at the casual murder of innocents in distant lands warring over a cause perpetuated by your daily routine activities. Automatically adjust the humidity and temperature of your cell with your mind alone. The ease of configuration is endorsed by the state and all its subsidiary participles.
The government spends resources perpetuating the ignorance manufactured for us by the fuckin' Yankees and acts like they're exercising our sovereignty. The price of oil rises as children scream in horror and more species are destroyed. The price of spoil rises as innocents die and brokers speculate. The christ of foil rises as the blood is spilt for profit. The world seethes. The war auld sings not the pity for the impetuous child blinded by epithelial considerations. The world will not rest until our species is removed from the map. She is not prepared to bear the weight of our ignorance much longer. Her tolerance is reaching its portentous end and our novelty is proving to be just that. We have become an aberration of nature having removed ourselves from the consensus and choosing to create our own fictional universe with us recreated as significant participants. It's almost as if having found that this fiction was only that that our hubris has driven us to destroy ourselves if only to justify our necessity in historical conspiracy.
The status quo is a conspiracy of complacency, a conspiracy of concession, a conspiracy of resignation and non accountability. How can such a behemoth of idiocy be stopped? It lumbers around, sectioned off to the ghetto but spilling over into the modern security state. The walls and doors may keep out the undesirables but it can't keep the smog out.
The smog is beginning to take on a life of its own. It has become the new demon of demonstrative vanity so characteristic of the modern age of industrial diversion. Abaddon has materialized right in front of our eyes. We live on the brink of the abyss. The brink of destruction. The angel of Hell stirs. His hooves clatter in anticipation. The sulphurous clouds of industrial waste are reminiscent of time long past. A Time when Giants walked the Earth.

Commodification of the Biosphere and Emergent Infection

The apparent surge in infectious diseases that have been documented over the past three
decades has been causally linked to rampant eco-destruction and industrialization by a
broad range of literature, both scientific and emotive. The commodification of the
biosphere, primarily due to a mixture of imperialism and capitalism, has resulted in un-
precedented degradation of natural ecosystems and related nutrient cycles. This trend has
been amplified by the processes of globalization which augments the objectification of
ecosystems for material gain and distribution. Poverty has also contributed to the process
of global objectification by eclipsing reason and ecological stewardship with material
necessity and survival tactics which often are in opposition to conservation. Together,
these imprudent practices of modern industrialized society are contributing to an ever
more stressed environment in which infectious diseases are both emerging and re-
emerging as formidable adversaries of public health.

Industrialization of the planet has resulted in many ills, the most salient of which being
climactic change which we now understand as a process of global warming. This process
has been determined to be a direct result of greenhouse gas emissions, most notably CO2
and NOx species, from industry and transportation. Many poorer nations are quick to
advance industrialism as a means of economic improvement and this trend seems only to
be on the rise. Indeed, 14 of the warmest years on record have occurred since 1980.(3)
As ambient land and water temperatures rise, the habitat of many vectors geographically
expands (3). Vector-borne diseases are prevalent, widespread and even endemic in many
tropical and sub-tropical regions of the biosphere. As the planet heats up, numerous
vectors are now able to inhabit regions they were previously unable to. Higher
temperatures can also affect “the biology and ecology of disease vectors and intermediate
hosts, the pathogens they transmit, and consequently, the risk of transmission.” (WHO,
2005). Thus, higher global temperatures as a result of industrialization have increased the
spread of many vector-borne infectious diseases.

Industrial expansion has also contributed to the emergence of infectious disease through
the process of deforestation. Agricultural practices, often inflated due to demand in the 1st
world, regularly make use of clear cut areas to develop crops for sale. The lust for wood
in the West has also fuelled the damaging enterprise. Deforestation disrupts the natural
habitat of many species, some who act as intermediate hosts for infectious diseases,
forcing these animals into closer contact with human populations in the search for
sustenance. This, in turn, increases the likelihood of transmission of zoonotic
pathogens. One example of zoonosis that is highly relevant is the transmission of H5N1
influenza A virus which, according to the World Health Organization, has established a
permanent ecological niche in poultry and is currently expanding its mammalian host
range(5). Deforestation may have contributed to this emergent threat by displacing wild
water fowl, which act as a reservoir for the virus, and bringing them into contact with
domesticated fowl.

Deforestation can also contribute to the emergence of infectious disease by displacing
large populations of people and creating ideal conditions for vector propagation. The
economically driven migration of workers to the forest fringe may bring people with little
or no immunity to an area where they are bound to be exposed to certain pathogens which
may be endemic to the region. Deforestation also causes water sheds to alter course,
leading to nutrient run off, local flooding and pooling of water. Stagnant water pools are
ideal breeding grounds for vectors of disease, particularly mosquitoes. In addition,
displacement of vectors themselves may also play a role in emergence :

“In Latin America, Chagas disease emerged as an important human disease after
deforestation caused the insect that transmits the infection to move from its wild natural
hosts to involve humans and domestic animals in the transmission cycle, eventually
transforming the disease into an urban infection that can now also be transmitted by
blood transfusion.” (1)

Thus, the continued arrogance of industrialism and its resultant commodification of
nature have contributed greatly to the emergence of many pathogens.

Behaviorally, the human race has exacerbated the threat of emergent diseases through
the practices of imperialism and globalization. Due to the primary area of concern for
transcontinental industry being the economic profitability of their enterprises, human
health and welfare are often completely ignored. With the advent of globalization,
modern industry will increase profit by securing manufacturing facilities in impoverished
nations, labor expenditure being a fraction of that in the modern world. In the process, the
behemoth of corporate industry often completely destroys local ecosystems, displacing
people and perpetuating the tide of cultural poverty which the WHO calls the deadliest of
all diseases. Today being World AIDS day, I am reminded of a speech by Stephen Lewis
in which he alluded to the fact that HIV/AIDS and the lack luster initiative by the world
powers to combat this growing epidemic is akin to cultural/socio-economic genocide.
Indeed, even if anti-malarial drugs (for example) were made available through wide
distribution networks to the afflicted populace, it would do little good as most of those
affected live in poverty and simply cannot afford the drugs. This line of reasoning leads
me to believe that social inequality and poverty are the single biggest factors driving the
contemporary surge in infectious diseases across the globe.

Of course, with poverty comes the degradation of public health infrastructure which is
necessary for controlling the spread of many emerging diseases. Often, the impoverished
live in unsanitary conditions as a result of economic or social displacement, not having
access to clean drinking water or proper sanitation systems. In such an unhygienic
situation, outbreaks of cholera and dysentery are common. These conditions, combined
with nutritional inadequacies characteristic of poverty, provide ideal breeding grounds for
new or re-emergent diseases. Indeed, “the resurgence of diseases once thought to have
been conquered stems from a deadly mix of exploding populations, rampant poverty,
inadequate health care, misuse of antibiotics and severe environmental degradation.”(6)
Degradation of public health infrastructure is also associated with promiscuous use of
antibiotics which contribute to the growing proportion of microbes now emerging with
pharmacological tolerance and immunity. Because drugs are scarce and often
unattainable, what little may be accessible may be improperly prescribed or
indiscriminately used furthering the problem of microorganism resistance.

Globalization contributes to the emergence of infectious disease, in part, by facilitating
the trade of goods and services across international boundaries. As the world markets
coalesce and intermingle it becomes more common for the trade of commodities to take
place over a wide geographical range. In this sense, it is commonplace for both flora and
fauna to cross international borders. Of course, both of these items may act as either
reservoirs for or intermediate hosts of infectious diseases. Even when tariffs or
restrictions prevent the large scale movement of biological entities across borders, the
underground trade of exotic plants and animals still continues further potentiating the
possibility of vector or microbe transmission. Also, new species may be introduced to
ecosystems where there are no natural predators. In such a case, the newly introduced
species would expand its population, perhaps exponentially, causing indigenous
populations to become extinct by successfully filling niche through secondary succession.
It is possible in such a stressed state that an infectious disease might emerge that could
successfully cross species barriers due to rapid genetic recombination. This could, in fact,
have devastating consequences locally,

“the greatest impact on ecosystem functions and services would be caused by a disease
that eliminates one or more keystone species and thereby generates a domino effect
through an ecosystem. This could result in the disruption of major natural production
systems, such as fisheries, other valuable biodiversity, essential geochemical cycles, or
all three.”(2)

International trade can have catastrophic effects at local levels due to emergent diseases.

Globalization can also lead to the emergence of pathogenic organisms through the
practice of tourism and international travel. An integral feature of globalization is
enhancement and facilitation of population mobility. Just as animals may act as
intermediate hosts, vectors and reservoirs of disease, so may humans. A tourist returning
back from a vacation may harbor pathogens unknowingly, introducing microbes into
populations with limited or no immunity. This too can have devastating consequences as
seen by the epidemic of smallpox introduced to the indigenous population by Columbus.
Public health infrastructure can prevent such an occurrence in contemporary times by
recommending vaccination prior to travel. These measures are elective, however, not
compulsory and many may choose not to opt for preemptive prophylaxis. Regardless of
prudential measures, however, some traveling will contract diseases endemic to the
region of destination for varying reasons.

Tourism is a function of imperialism, and as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,
it becomes more and more affordable to travel for pleasure. This, of course, increases the
possibility of diseases emerging in the affluent West which we have seen over the past 5
years in the form of SARS and Japanese Encephalitis.(3) As the volume of people
traveling increases, so does the threat of diseases emerging in North America and Europe
increase. While public health facilities strengthen their preparedness for emergent
disease, air travel still poses a significant risk as “it is well recognized that human and
cargo traffic facilitates the movement of pathogens across the world and since most
infectious diseases have an incubation period exceeding 36 hours, and any part of the
world can now be reached within this time frame, the potential for rapid geographical
spread is apparent.”(3) Thus, the mobility that imperialism affords to the elite may be the
very practice that condemns us in a pandemic situation, which the WHO deems currently
immanent regarding the H5N1 influenza A virus.(5)

The causal relationships between increasing emergent biological threats to the human
race and our blind pursuit of materialism are glaring clear at this particular juncture in
time. Having enjoyed all the benefice of modernism and industrial technological
advancement, the human animal is still ignorant to the fact that success is matter of
longevity afforded through compromise and mutualism not a matter of accumulation
afforded through destruction and parasitism. Imperialism has perpetually misunderstood
the fact that just because we can exploit something comfortably does not imply that we
ought to. Of course, ethics classes are suspiciously absent from an MBA curriculum.
Industrialization and its related ecological destruction are direct results of an absolution
of environmental stewardship in which empirical matter is regarded as a means to an end
rather than an end unto itself. Intuitively speaking, the biosphere as a sentient and
cognitive whole has little choice but to reflexively attempt to remove the insult we
affectionately refer to as homo sapiens. Inadvertently or not, the human species has since
the inception of industrialization attempted to reduce matter and environment to its parts
instead of understanding its entirety. It is precisely this reduction of ontological
understanding to the reactionary stance of empirical utilitarianism that has doomed
modernism to failure.
