World Earth: "There is no way out or round or through ... Life on Earth may not be ending, (HGWells), but humans aren't going anywhere ~ MIND AT THE END OF ITS' TETHER"

Near the end of his life H. G. Wells, the master of science fiction who produced optimistic visions in The Shape of Things to Come and The Time Machine, turned pessimist and wrote Mind at the End of Its Tether. “There is no way out or round or through,” he concluded. Life on Earth may not be ending, Wells believed, but humans aren’t going anywhere.

Jets, Tanks, Planes, Bombs and Occupying Soldiers: The Wall Street Pentagon War Machine 



The end of everything we call life is close at hand and cannot be evaded. Ours is a closed universe, yet we need something beyond it… Man must go steeply up or down and the odds seem to be all in favour of his going down and out. If he goes up, then so great is the adaptation demanded of him that he must cease to be a Man.
- H.G. Wells: Mind at the End of Its Tether (1945).

So long as we have a mouth, we will need food. So long as we need food, there will be people with food, and some without. There will be greed, jealously and war. No, I see clearly today that these flaws lie in the human condition itself, and are simply expressed in monetary or political terms. Blaming anything other than our humanity, would be like me blaming my bedroom mirror for the extra pound or twenty I may be carrying.

Now we know exactly how many members of the U.S. House of Representatives care enough about American terrorism to attend a Congressional briefing about a U.S. drone attack that followed a classic terrorist pattern in killing a grandmother and wounding nine children in Pakistan. Five.

Five members of “the people’s house” came to the briefing, and one of them was there for the full 90 minutes.

When one of the witnesses expressed disappointment at the turnout, a congressman reassured him: this was better than we expected. They were all Democrats.

Had any other American lawmakers joined the audience of somewhat more than 100, they would have heard some of the survivors describe the inexplicable (and unexplained, because the CIA does not explain) attack in which the first drone missile blew up a 67-year-old midwife as she was picking okra and wounded two of her grandchildren. Others came out of a nearby house to see what had happened and the second drone missile wounded seven more children.

This is a classic terrorist tactic, sometimes called the “double tap,” using the first explosion to draw a crowd of first responders and onlookers as targets for the second explosion. Typically the double tap attack rings up a higher score.

In a sane world there might be more outcry against the world’s only superpower using terrorist tactics on civilian populations in a half dozen or more countries, based on the rationale of a global war on terror (no longer the official name) that, so far, seems only to have added death and chaos to an already deadly, chaotic world because no one in authority seems capable of coming up with a less destructive way of defending our homeland at the expense of any other homeland we select.

The Pakistanis keep telling us to stop killing their people

[SIDEBAR:  Tao says that living in balance in nature is the key.  Tao practitioners reached this 'enlightenment' and other humans did too:  Hiawatha, Great Amerikkan Indian Chief that Wiki whatever says was a 'fictional character'.

Hardly fictional, CHIEF OF THE IROQUOIS HIAWATHA, in balance with nature and then as was all other places in earth invaded the 'Anglo-Saxon' which today is the US-ZioCons.

There is a serious problem -- in the particular 'cult' of humans that have bred into the most wild beast mentality/ies.  Preying upon our own species and destroying our home 'earth'.  Absent any concern whatsoever, for other than insatiably greedily more and more and never enough -- FRAUD sold to humans as 'mony' that gets to be the/a power ~over whatever can be overpowered~ killing as mass murder, after all the horrors imagined in the sickest of our species' mind/s in EG GITMO Insane Asylum Et Al]

  1. Our COLLECTIVE MIND has been contaminated. The contamination IS what we see as an 'outer reality'. DEEP In The Spiral Of Our Being Is An Energy That Can't Be Other Than Unbridled And/Or Subtle IE EG Rough, Coarse, Dense, Gross & Alchemy In OUR "Brain/s" - Mind / Mind/s - Subtle on World Earth: "There is no way out or round or through ... Life on Earth may not be ending, (HGWells), but humans aren't going anywhere ~ MIND AT THE END OF ITS' TETHER"
