So there is this intelligent body and this consciousness that must somehow work together. The body doesn’t care much about its eventual expiration, it cares a lot about present integrity. The consciousness cares less about present integrity but is scared shitless of the incoming end. Intelligence is evolution at work. But consciousness is a side… Continue reading Conscious machine
A white rose smells like living. I breathe it in to remind myself what it is to be missed from this dense embrace of Right-here-right-now. A red rose looks like lure.

Maybe a speech on the relativity of stupidity would have done a better job …. – Seriously? –… Continue reading Artificial sincerity
