The spirited man says things are about to get heavy, for we are amidst our move from crisis mode toward humanity's next period of flourishing.

The video shows how we are currently toward the end of our third cycle of an 80 year block (from 1780), with the fourth cycle starting around 2028-2030.

An interesting theory.

Reminds me of that Mrs Kearns interview in Shutter Island.

I don't know the world anymore.

They tell me there are... televisions?

Voices and faces, coming from a box. — He? — I hear enough voices already!

"20,000 metal boxes carrying goods"

I love this unpretentious and dull phrasing, because of course how else would you describe this if it weren't so normal, e.g. to someone a century ago?

"How to explain net neutrality" by Tikue Anazodo (for iAfrikan).

Makes two interesting analogies to help access the "big picture" issues.

Real example: neutrality failed in TV, with monopolies, complete channel packs, central budget control, and high barriers to entry for people to reach each other.

Hyphetical example: neutrality in road and postal infrastructure. What if it failed?

There's a lot more to it, but it's a good start.

"Last Christmas", I heard it far too often and didn't think much of it, just another cheesy-engineered pop hit. Or is it?

In this episode, composer Chilly Gonzales treats us to a musical guide through the famous song.

I now believe it's more akin to an opera piece, following the structure of a rap song, with experimental jazz influences. Wicked, right?

In 1902 in a German town there suspended ("flying") railway. This two-minute recording gives us an impression of what life was like back then, throughout the town, and outside of it.

It was shot on 68mm from that railway, providing impressive levels of detail. #history #film #art #moma

This scene from Fringe is resonating with me right now.

The rubble we find our selves in, picking up the pieces, reflecting on the systematic problems we've endured for so long in our society, and where we go from here.

Video: John Noble as Walter Bishop, in Fringe (TV series), playing Only You by Yazoo.
