the big picture, the master plan as of today:

governments have been divided and conquered

all power resides in engineering

replace services with products that make products

it's not quite as much profit, but it saves the planet and frees the people

just keep money out of new simulations, and we're going to be fine.

poetry is disability tech

it can be used to describe things that are there but invisible, to people who can not see it, physically or otherwise.

which is great. we can connect people who don't even share the same sense, physically or otherwise.

ok here's a thing i'm working on. tell me what you think.

artist: i draw inspiration from the hole in my soul

scientist: haha souls are not real

artist: ok how do i put this

artist: picture, at the center of my being, a supermassive singularity held in stasis by a counteracting gravitational field. because my imagination is not constrained by the laws of thermodynamics, the power differential produces gravitational friction that fuels the urge to communicate.

scientist: you draw inspiration from the hole in your soul, got it

"peer 2 peer"

- sounds like a 90's eurodance group
- smells like piracy and lawsuits

"the matrix"

+ mathy word
- oppressive vibe

"the lattice"

+ very rad mathy word
+ sounds super organized
+ slaps
+ arrest the murderers of breonna taylor
