Democrat’s Bait and Switch Eco Reform Strategy?

 Democrats seem to have used a bait and switch green infrastructure campaign strategy on the face of it. That is, the plan after they got the Presidential job and both houses of congress the real plan seems to be more about constituent pork than environmental reform. Maybe I am wrong about that, yet the 3.5 trillion dollar plan isn’t exactly a green new deal. What is it actually?

It may be quite a number of years before another plan to reverse biodiversity loss, eco-degradation and transition to ecospherically sustainable economics makes its way through Congress. Are politicians simply stupid?

Continuing with the metaphysical speculation

I have continued to work on my science fiction book project. Following is chapter 3 from part two. I had to write some story to support the metaphysical speculation that’s an implicit purpose of the book…  

Clip Murderm on assignment from Heneral Scaldeen arrived at the Secretions of the Hidden Universe minutes after Victor Scriabin decimated the ruling criminal council and President Maud Dlib in a devastating explosion at Lobang. He did not tarry at the secretions and continued on through to Lootanburn while the height of the imperial criminal first responders to the obliteration of the Supreme Parole council chamber members delivered a horde of criminals to secure the scene of the disaster.

The exit of the Hexi corridor on Lobang was just minutes away via hypertube from Lootanburn and the Emporium mess he learned of on the hypertube’s criminal news you can use screen. Clip Murderm had left the Hexi just before the status bar of the Hexi changed from green to red. He was cut off from the Hidden Universe and evidently left on his own in the original Universe for the time being.

Murderm realized he was the highest ranking survivor of the Imperial Criminal Empire in this Universe and had the natural right to rule, or believed he did until he was informed via comm link of the distress signals of Heneral Cheryl Scaldeen and Commander Nikrita Kukuk. Murderm knew Scaldeen was higher ranking than himself yet if she was in captivity in this Universe, apparently on the planet Beach of the Dwindling Worlds, the logical implication meant he was indeed acting leader of the Criminal Universe; his Universe at least until he got around to liberating Scaldeen from captivity. He wasn’t in a hurry.

The hypertube depot was near the Emporium. A trio of criminal security personnel assigned to the Supreme Parole where waiting for him.

“Get me Maud Dlib’s aide de camp if he she or it survived the blast and have it at the Emporium annex where I will take charge of this miserable world. Have the head of security waiting too, along with the Lobang cartel’s chief enforcement officer.”

With that order to the leader of the pack of three security officers Murderm asserted his alpha criminal leadership role that he knew he would enjoy playing for the foreseeable future. Even so he realized soberly that it would be necessary to work with vigor to free Scaldeen and Kukuk so he would not appear to have been not trying to do so should they actually be released, escape or broken out of captivity at Beach.

The security officer communicated to the security office to locate and deliver the right people to the Emporium annex. They neared the main entrance of the annex located across the piazza from the Emporium.

Murderm looked askance at the dust in the air, shattered glass and miscellaneous debris from the blast at the Emporium, turned his head and walked inside the annex.

A tall, dark stranger with a menacing look and a missing eye replaced by a micro-computer with full spectrum sensors stood by a gaming table. He said to Murderm walking his way; “Sir, I am McRaegore Lutfist, former aide de camp for the late President of Lobang and countless other realms of profit.”

Great Lutfist; give me a report on the state of affairs Maud Dlib oversaw. In short, what irons did she have in the fire.”

Lutfist said; “The late President had looted the intellectual properties of nearly four thousand worlds and had seventeen thousand active planetary and system projects of infiltration and establishment for the end of looting any worthwhile intellectual properties. Most of the data obtained was consolidated here to Lobang and sent through the Hexi corridor to the High council of criminal elites in the Hidden Universe.”

“Yes Lutfist; and the data there was forwarded unto the alien sponsors of the criminal high council. That practice stops now. All intellectual data will be consolidated unto me for data storage through you. You McRaegore are my new aide de camp as leader of this criminal universe. Regard me as the new Maud Dlib if you will and the high council and aliens as effectively dead.”

“What Sir, if I may ask, about Heneral Scaldeen? She won’t tolerate being second to anyone other than Maud Dlib.”

“McRaegore, she is a captive on the Dwindling World’s planet Beach along with Commander Nikrita Kukuk. That’s why I am taking charge during this interregnum of leaders. I don’t know what has happened with the high council or the aliens; for the present the Hexi and communication with the Hidden Universe or the alien universe isn’t working. I brought a copy of all of the patentable data the aliens got from us though, on a hyper-memory chip. Take it and see if you can find anything useful on it that would enable us to restore extra-universal travel and comms.” Murderm took a hyper-mem chip from a pocket and handed it to Lutfist, who took it.

“One more thing Lutfist. Some of the criminals infiltrating the Dwindling Worlds are dispirited by all of the civil rights developments that have curtailed most physical torture. I want to do something to lift their spirits; so send care packages of wireless torture technology to our cells so they can bring torture that is untracable and unaccountable to the Dwindlings Worlds that all of the paper on the planets can’t stop, and smiles to our loyal criminals.”

“Yes sirpt’ Lutfist replied. He about faced and walked to an administrative area in the corner of the temporary HQ of the criminal empire of the Universe.

When the chief enforcement officer arrived following the head of Emporium security Murderm said; “You are Shung Gnu, chief enforcement officer of the Lobang cartel?”

Shung Gnu nodded his head in agreement.

“The you are my new head of planetary security, and I am the new President of the criminal universe. You’re first task is to reform Emporium security. Cut off the heads of all present Emporium security officers, encase them in clear poured plastic to make paperweights for my new staff here, and establish your cartel gang siccarios as my new Emporium security officers.”

“Shung Gnu obeyed the new order extracting a stiletto sword and slashing off the former chief of the Emporium’s security in the blink of an eye followed by a kata killing the trio of security officers present with a similar decisive slash.

“Ah, evolution is such a lovely thing” president Murderm said. “This place has suites doesn’t it McRaegore?”

“Yes sir; a Vice Presidential suite too.”

“Good McRaegore; that is my new Presidential suite and office for the Universe until we find a better, more suitable accommodation. Send a pack of service women to it with champagne, caviar and smoked grimm meat.”

“Yes Sir” McRaegore replied.

Walking away to the mag-lift Murderm said over his shoulder; “And get the best operator we have to liberate Heneral Scaldeen and Commander Kukuk from Beach. Expedite the insertion of personnel to infiltrate the governments and business leadership of worlds we haven’t started looting of ideas yet. I will be busy for a while. Do not disturb for a couple of hours. Get rolling McRaegore; time’s wasting.”

Building and/or dividing a more(t) (im)perfect union

A lot of phrases are trite these days; sadly unification is one such word. The nation is a unification of states, the politics may differ. Some politicians would prefer easy to control ants marching together to serve Wall Street and Boston elites while few comprehend what makes good politics. Good politics are good ideas. Politicians that serve the public instead of themselves and special interests find good ideas and express them in campaigns. F.D.R. and R.R. did that.

I should point out that in the U.S.A. today there is great complexity in making correct political analysis for a polity that is badly informed by a biased and/or ignorant, superficial media owned by and pursuing special interest viewpoints. Many political groups have anachronistic or outdated points of view regarding their relationship in regard to other political groups that are sometimes regarded as adversaries. Even if certain objectives were to be achieved by various political interests the result would not be what they expected. Interestingly enough few are able to correlate all of the meaningful viewpoints, prospects and interests within a working order for the overall state of the United States; That can apply to understanding real national security prospects for the future too, with foreign affairs running hot and cold in regard to dangers and opportunities together. Some of the filters for viewing and interacting with foreign concerns are contingent on which element of domestic politics it relates to. The United States today isn’t too complex to rightly process politically, it is just the case that not too many are concerned with the way the overall state of national affairs proceeds and instead place blind faith not in God, but in Wall Street and theories about capitalism that are as hoary as theories about socialism.

One may select party candidates that are right and proper persons with bad ideas. The U.S. marketplace wants candidates that are unblemished and that can be sold without returns or complaints to consumers. Ideas for political platforms are secondary and at any rate need be subordinated to the political correctness test of what helps concentrate wealth and peonize and subjectivize citizens. The rich control of mass media and social media assure repression of dissenting ideas; any political thought not recognized to support either the left version of Wall Street or that of the right.

Plainly Vice President Harris could use a new speech writer who comprehends honor and military service, valor and courage as well as the non-harm, anything goes, satisfy everyone that isn’t to the right appeal to the left. She may be the Presidential candidate for the Democrat party in 2024 should aging Joe Biden decide to retire to Golden Pond (not the one in Wisconsin) and fish the Chesapeake Bay. The Vice President’s apprenticeship four years should bring her to a ready condition sufficient to give the public confidence enough to elect her providing the Republicans run another plunder the environment candidate without charisma or good political ideas pervasively.

V.P. Harris should recognize that her party is the party of division in pursuit of a one-party system. Reinforcing illegal immigration and bilingualism does not support unification. Neither do abortions, homosexual marriage, cutting taxes on the rich as did President Barrack Obama. Her party divided even itself over the second infrastructure bill. Apparently throwing out the election plans for green, sustainable economic infrastructure Speaker Pelosi has sought to force another pass it to find out what’s in it mega-bill of 3.5 trillion dollars through in order to give free day care to illegal aliens and others perhaps. Great potential for division and none for unification. Even with the support of Chief Justice Roberts Democrats monomaniacally pursue policies that divide the nation in the long run as they downsize the white male element of the nation.

Basically there are two good and necessary ideas for a uniting the populous of the United States in the long run.

1) Secure borders with a vast salt-water desalinization canal along the Mexican border piping up saltwater to Deming New Mexico to let it flow downhill east and west making millions and millions of gallons of freshwater with sunshine, evaporation and condensation for the U.S. southwest. Keep citizenship meaningful, Provide green economic help to foreign nations rather than flooding the U.S,A, with cheap labor.

2) Green economic infrastructure for sustainability with a guarantied minimum income, 60% income tax on the richest 1% and free college tuition including graduate school

Most policies of both major parties downsize exiting Americans and work to promote them to peon-subject status employed by global corporate in cooperation with the Chinese communist party elites. Billionaires invest globally and are fundamentally transnational characters. Without a secure polity the people will be divided by the rich control of borders, language, culture and composition demographically of the nation that they would mold into meaningless proles being reduced through dope, homosexuality and atheism into mindless consumers unconcerned with traditional family units. The policies of division are requisite for the conquest of Americans by plutocrats. Unity requires respect for God and political consensus to find ways to let people be free without forcing their particular way or preferences upon others. An enlightened electorate of intelligent citizens able to encounter ideas in a marketplace of ideas should be the most effective way to address the challenges presented by demographics and environmental over-use and abuse.

A brief history of how the U.S.A. got to its present state of disunity should include a sketch of the problems with U.S. leadership since the Reagan administration.

President George H.W. Bush inherited the Reagan legacy of federal debt and budget deficits and the end of the Cold War following the Red Army withdrawal from East Germany in January 1989. If 41 had been re-elected perhaps the problems might have been avoided. 41 was a phi beta kappa in economics; his problems were in his primaries and the media attitude toward him. NPR joked of french maids in Nova Scotia and Pat Buchanan ads seemed to imply some sort of Bacchanalian revelry with leather clothing, whips and chains. 41’s relationship with spokesman Marlin Fitzwater were regarded in the same vein as that of Monica Lewinsky and President Bill Clinton. None knew if it was factual.

Democrats ran a slew of candidates in 1992. Either John or Bob Kerry would have been good Presidents. Instead Democrats choose the media favorite Bill Clinton in 92. The Clintons bent U.S. politics until the present with unwillingness to stay off the stage.

President Bill burned a Christian sect at Waco on the 52nd day of a siege inadvertently helping elect President Bush 43 in 2000. Bill Clinton’s Lewinsky affair shattered respect for the Oval office and set an example for loose social morals and public lying for cover-ups that has since become routine. Probably people didn’t really believe Donald Trump’s denials of sexual impropriety with a dozen or more women; it was just that he ran against the rather detested and distrusted Hillary Clinton in 2012 who was herself believed to be a consummate lying lawyer ala’ Lady Macbeth. Hillary Clinton elected Donald Trump- the Genghis Khan of American environmental plundering- in the same way that Sen Edward Kennedy elected Reagan by running against President Carter in the 1980 Democrat primary. Sen Edward Kennedy developing brain concern and dying from it later seemed to take up rather crazy policies during the 1990s increasingly until he finally died. Kennedy and Clinton destroyed any semblance of political unity in the United States.

During the Clinton administration Anglophilism raged with Bill Clinton promoting British Thermal Units in conservation jargon and the Youth-knighthood-states being common media lingo equal in quantity to that of sharing rem earlier. President Bill’s Lewinsky troubles helped promote the Newt Gingrich era in Congress of an (illegal) contract with America approach to politics during the 90s. Cutting taxes and promoting irrationally exuberant growth became de rigeur almost unto the present except for slumps from Covid 19, the 2008 derivatives, mortgage crisis and the 2000-1999 twin towers and cyber-tech crises.

President Bush 43 lied or deceived the nation about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq as a reason to go to war. He said that rebuilding Iraq would cost 50 billion dollars; the cost would add several trillions present and future dollars to US, public debt. Because President Bush 43 benefited politically from the war as the Democrat intifada ended along with the Twin Towers people suspected some high-level perfidy was involved. Apparently 43 had an oil company that Osama Bin Ladin or a close relation invested in. Osama was apparently allowed to escape from Torah Bora to Pakistan where President Obama reeled him in on the 10th anniversary of 9-11 before the shelved item became spoilt. President Bush 43’s inept handling of the economy with prolific spending and no-bid contracts for Halliburton in Iraq seemed to lead to the 2008 financial crisis that was in part blamed on President Clinton’s policies of compelling financial corporations to spend on loans for housing, yet derivatives were a clever instruments designed I believe by quants employed by elite brokerages and banks, People were much relieved to have President Bush 43 gone from office, and Hillary Clinton running in 2008 helped get the fast-tracked Harvard product Barrack Obama elected to the White House to usher in every wacko leftist policy of benefit to Harvard and Wall Street. He made the Bush II tax cuts and vast federal deficits permanent.

The balancing of the federal budget that was a major campaign issue as late as 1992…it became lost afterwards generally with supply-side economics and the concentration of wealth with perennial deficits becoming annual choices for both parties. Deficit hawks perished The only exception was the final year of the second Clinton term when Republicans owned the disgraced President and had their way with budget cuts to the poor.

Now the nation is politically splintered; the traditional middle class being replaced by cheap foreign workers and other politically elements compliant to the rich. Legal and illegal immigrants generally are more politically compliant with sinecured middle class sponsors. The federal debt that may reach 34 trillion in 2022 if the second Pelosi infrastructure bill goers through, and it will generate the effect of displacing real ecological reform that would discomfort the economic structure of established wealth. Arnold Toynbee noted that an inability for an established economy to change is one of the prime causes of the fall of civilizations. An environment in decline and numerous foreign threats that cannot be easily remedied for a divided national culture satisfactory to the wealthiest.

Democrats weren’t really serious about Green, Sustainable Reform in 2020 Election

One might wonder if the Democrat party and presidential candidates used global warming and the green reform agenda as a lever to get elected with a plank many independents care about, and nothing more. The infrastructure bills put forward by Nancy Pelosi do not remotely approach green economic reform. Instead they disingenuously invented human infrastructure worth 3.5 trillion dollars with green concerns getting short shrift.

If the democrats did not believe that global warming, mass species extinction and the degradation of the planetary ecosphere were serious enough to develop a new green economic infrastructure with a basket of economic reform and infrastructure measures worth 3.5 trillion dollars why did they pretend it was during the election cycle? If Democrats do not presently use their majority power in Congress and with a party leader as President, when might they go about getting that done if they eventually decide that returning the planet’s ecosphere to a healthy and sustainable footing is necessary? If they don’t get something done now that meets the challenges faced by the nation, and lose the Congress next year or the Presidency in 2024 would they expect Republicans to get their work of green reform done for them?

The failure of Von Pelosi leadership to adequately address the national need for green infrastructure reform might just doom the next ten years politically to failure to halt the decay of the nation’s ecosphere. Sure Democrats will have added several trillion dollars of public debt and brought day care in a decaying world along with dental care for the elderly able to afford Medicare payments each month. There are numerous social challenges including health and basic income, secure borders and foreign economic reform toward sustainability that should be dealt with in separate bills. Conflating them with the national green infrastructure reform agenda is simply very bad sense. The cupboard may be bare to pay for the extrinsically necessary green reform when the vital bill is due (it seems presently overdue).

It may be good to have good teeth in a dying world; yet dental and medical care for the very poor should be handled in a medical and dental bill, as should day care, rather than in an infrastructure bill. The very rich own most of the businesses that produce global warming in the U.S.A. It is the rich that lead the way on indifference to ecosphere decline, so it would be quite reasonable to tax the rich and Wall Street to pay for ecospheric and atmospheric recovery; creating a sustainable approach to human interaction with the ecosphere cannot well be put off until the dawn of some future hypothetical utopian age of congressional intelligence and wisdom.

Not only does a falsely named infrastructure bill fail to meet the challenge of ecosphere and atmosphere decline with a vigorous reform response of economic infrastructure, it creates a bias against talking about infrastructure bills in the future since the name is a rubric for splurging upon omnibus packages for Democrats that don’t remotely address the serious existential threats to human and other mammalian biological life on Earth. Democrats with the baloney infrastructure bill will make Republicans unlikely to be interest much in future ‘infrastructure’ discussions that lead to shopping sprees without adding working, innovative infrastructure even legislatively without much spending. There may be many here among us who feel that the Democrats’ plans for infrastructure to meet ecospheric challenges are but a joke of election time deceit.

FDR, IKE, JFK, Herbert Hoover- the infrastructure guys

Dams, bridges, interstates, the Apollo Program, T.V.A., electrification; those Presidents had the ability to get large scale infrastructure rolling in a way that others did not. The smaller Biden infrastructure plan is the basic; what is absent is large scale water making for the west, infrastructure for moon science and technology labs and the regreening of American with new zoning ideas to integrate wilderness and wild habitat with human habitat. Adding trillion of public debt without getting the job done presents a great opportunity cost; what future bill and debt would be needed or affordable to make up for the silly 3.5 trill bill gorging its way through the house?

President Biden believes the Taliban is the Super-power?

 I don’t understand why President Biden has so much trouble getting an orderly withdrawal from Afghanistan. He has A-10s, B-52s and Predators with hellfire missiles available to create safe exit zone around Afghanistan for Americans and others. Instead it seems as if he has taken the Barbara Streisand defense leadership course  (I like Barbara yet would choose her for a security guard in a rough neighborhood).

If some sort of blood letting follows the weak looking U.S. exit and lots of Afghans are slaughtered the President will really have a political price to pay, in addition to the loss of life. Sometimes assertiveness counts. The way it looks you would think the Taliban and Isis K are the super-power.

A B-52 carries 70,000 pounds of ordinance for creating safe exit zone around Afghan airports. Perhaps a perimeter circling airfields carpet bombed for a distance of three miles at several locations would permit careful ingress of Afghans seeking to flee that nation before stoning or beheading. Ospreys could lift some Afghans a short way to 3rd countries until they could arrive in the U.S.A.

Russians might have expected some U.S.-Taliban argument about extended the evacuation date and withdraw some of their people from Kabul already. Maybe obliterating the Presidential palace would help urban reconstruction for the Taliban since they won’t have a President. What is wrong with Mr. Biden anyway? A simple plan to create safe zones with proper warning to Afghans to evacuate impacted neighborhoods might be a reasonable step to create a safe exit revision plan.

Let a couple hundred thousand Afghan refuges find jobs in California and Florida

 One good side of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan fiasco is that Afghans are very good people that would make good U.S. citizens. The Biden administration should get serious about brings two or three hundred thousand to the U.S. and settle them in California.

  Afghanistan is a tough part of the world these days. I suggested years ago that the U.S. should establish old Spanish style fortifications there that are very safe places for soldiers to reside while backing up the native army for 50 years or so like we have in Germany because of the “‘Russian threat” presumably. Alternatively the U.S. doesn’t want to seem like a colonial power so 20 years may be the limit of working to create a safe zone for everyone in central Asia.

 The Taliban with a new and improved army well supplied by the Biden administration will be better at self-defense for thirty years or so and will even have an air force with helicopter pilot training presumably donated by former Pakistani pilots. Maybe the Taliban will defrappe Chinese expansion when they aren’t on the Chinese payroll. perhaps China will regard the Sea of China as an easier spot to build islands in order to claim shallow verdant waters that actually belong to several nations without adequate militaries to defrump Chinese expansion.

The Taliban could get off to a good start if it allows a few hundred thousand of its people to exit and help them get to nations that want them unlike Turkey, Greece and Russia. The Talibani could seem more civil, modern and willing to work on good large projects with shovel-ready jobs like build a high speed rail from the Indian Ocean to Russia should all parties want anything like that, and have the dollars to build it.

Florida and Texas Governors want sick school kids?

 Because there were reports that Covid 19 causes subtle brain vessel rupture in the brain stem it seems wrong to nearly require school kids to be exposed to Covid 19 in public schools in Texas, Florida and Alabama. Maybe the governors of those states ought to reconsider their efforts to sicken school children that might need some goading to wear a mask in school instead of robbing a liquor store or burglarizing a home as some kids in Florida reportedly have tried on occasions.

Why is it that some state governors seem to be from the bottom of the barrel on intelligence yet do so well? Is that a union kind of thing. Not that the U.S. Government or yippee weather radio gets anything right; not even same day wind direction forecasts like as not. The stupidest thing about  Obamacare or food stamps is that they aren’t administered like federal program with services valid in all the states without requiring that poor people change their state of residence to get the state officials to believe they live there. Programs that are designed for the sedentary and established jst don’t work so well all of the time for the poor that need to travel seasonally in order not to freeze, or get heat exhaustion or to find a job.

Sickness can occur in a human regardless of what state one is living or travelling in, and hunger can also occur if one goes to another state to look for a job for six weeks. Some bureaucracies require six weeks for a coffee break.

Relying upon state governments to deliver federal programs is simply stupid in the modern era wear people don’t use horses to get around so much as they used to. The Von Pelosi extortion plan to lever 3.5 trillion dollars for a simple 1 trillion dollar infrastructure plan to pass seems dubiously ethical as well; it might be better to give a $3000 stimulus to all poor adults earning below federal poverty level than to just dump pork to special interests. It might be a lot cheaper and more fair. Why not eliminate income tax and sales tax for anything solar or wind power related as well instead of filtering progress through some lame federal program probably dumbed down by state governors.

Artlessness of Biden’s deal and the fall of Kabul

 With the fall of Kabul now inevitable one might wonder what President Trump would have made of his negotiations with the Taliban to end the conflict in Afghanistan. President Biden simply let the U.S. military exit and the Emirate of Afghanistan move in with raising a fuss.

https://www.politico.com/news/2021/08/15/pompeo-biden-afghanistan-blame-504713

President Trump was fairly skillful at negotiating internationally and it is thus ponderous as to what he would have actually done with Afghanistan if he had been re-elected. Mr. Trump tended to drive hard bargains with fair results. It is somewhat challenging to believe he would have been so limp-wristed as President Biden in effect repeating the U.S. exist from Vietnam.

The 2020 election was a choice between Charybdis and Scylla and it was reasonable to abstain from voting. President Trump rated a D grade on his Covid 19 leadership and an F on environmentalism while President Biden leads the immoral political choices of democrats and a globalism that downgrades the U.S.A. and traditional family structures.

It may be that the Afghan army simply went the way of the Taliban without much of a fight when faced with the choice because western elite values of homosexual marriage were ludicrous to expect to be favorably regarded in a conservative Muslim nation. So it may be that President Biden used a kind of hard pragmatism regarding long term prospects for U.S. interests in that part of the world. perhaps a future Supreme Court decision will realize that marriage really is a heterosexual event and rectify the abomination of the Robert’s court; homosexuals can make a legal encumbrance for themselves if they wish comparable to that of matrimony. Less usurpation and more reasonable legislation with the consent of the governed would have been a better example to set for a polarized nation divided along party lines, or even deeper, along a line of those that support real democracy and equal political rights, political pluralism and free speech, secure borders, a good ecosphere in recovery and those that don’t.

To work to change Afghan society for two decades and then drop the exposed coldly when some practical military fortifications and security help to the Afghan government was possible makes me wonder what the values were that made the deal of giving the Taliban everything they want was.

Does the D.C. political scene expect a warlord to emerge to challenge the Taliban. Are warlords even morally qualified for U.S. support. Did the U.S. in homogenizing an Afghan military so centralize it was to erase the prospects for warlords to arise? Will the military equipment the U.S. gave to the Afghan government and the military training not go largely to the Taliban? There are numerous questions one might consider if it is not really practical to ignore the Taliban, wish them good luck for a happy a prosperous reorganization of that nations and just go about passing a half trillion dollars of day care in order to let more people work for Wall Street while their progeny are indoctrinated by the party.

Global warming, the Final warning and Irrational Solutions

 The recently released U.N. climate report isn’t anything that wasn’t already known. In his book ‘The Final Warning’ James Lovelock- the author of the Gaia hypothesis said that it is already to late to save the planet from becoming preponderantly desertified and people should be planning to live like African ants in large hives. He wrote that the U.S.A. would largely become a desert and just a few places would be green. What is obvious is that in spite of happy Biden administration comments about the optimism they have to overcome challenges, the nation is as likely to respond to the challenge of global heating as well as it has to Covid 19 or actually, less so.

Politicians are largely not competent to design an ecological economic reform policy. It it worse than the challenge to Bill Clinton while President of being able to walk and chew gum at the same time; politicians would need the social capacity to get voters to go along with their plan to radical transition the U.S. economy to one of long term environmental sustainability right away, if they had an idea of what such a plan would look like- and they don’t.

The Democratic party is interested more in expanding the number of voters from Latin America through illegal immigration and Republicans have governors that are global warming and covid 19 skeptics. Democrats want to increase female wealth and affluence globally and that unrealistic desire accelerates non-sustainability. The Biden administration is perpetrating another Vietnam flight phenomena in Afghanistan and perhaps rightly so since it is an advocate for the extremely divisive homosexual agenda and homo marriage policy that motivates Muslims to attack the symbols of decadence and depravity. The rich own the broadcast media that is a sycophant for corporate expansion globally and a corrupter of democracy subverting independent political developments as well as social media censorship and manipulation of search engine listings.

The Democrat Party under Speaker Pelosi has become a one-party system to the limit of its ability forcing every issue possible without consent from opposition. A half trillion dollars for day care may reduce global warming and mass extinctions of course, and the moon may provide green cheese for all chess analysts to munch on, yet if that doesn’t work how will 4 or 5 trillion dollars of additional debt fix global warming?

Perhaps the Von Musk move to Mars program is the one idea that works that may actually provide a refuge for the most rich to retreat to if a natural final solution of planetary war to solve an intractable political issue with irrationality happens…this time the irrational final solution would be mass human decimation through biological war. Luckily the world’s a test tube of biological PhD experimentation with so many recent graduates. Surely the excellent politics one has experienced since the Reagan administration left office will give everyone a reason for hope, soma, and happy drugs to ignore the problems. I am not optimistic about the world’s prospects for avoiding critical blunders and the common irrational method of default politics when rationality doesn’t work. I wish people ordinarily were smarter than they are; maybe they can be more like the Inca building infrastructure on large scale that can solve environmental challenges.

Building a water desalination canal network along the Mexican border might provide millions and millions of gallons of fresh water to help reduce desertification. It is actually possible with siphons and solar power. No one in D.C. wants to take up anything besides investing in Wall Street and cutting taxes though, realistically.

Selections of Spirit and the Martian Arts

I read a few philosophical and natural theology essays that were initially part of his science fiction book project named ‘Spirit and the Martian Art. The images are photos I took in Alaska.

Selections from Spirit and the Martian Art

I am working on a science fiction/philosophy natural theology book and have recorded a few selections from it hence the video where I read a few of these selections.

““Nothing we can do about that at least in the Dwindling Worlds except to stop the thefts and leaks. Getting patentable ideas to market as soon as possible is necessary if we are to keep ahead of destructive environmental challenges, and destructive interference from infinite Universes and dimensions that may conflict by design or accident with our own. New inventions created a priori to resolve circumstances that don’t exist yet though might occur at some future or past time- we cannot regard other universes as being on the same time metric as ours obviously since universal space-time is self-standing in relation to the thermodynamic space and configuration for-itself and not for-other universes…those inventions may keep our Universe and the sentients in it alive and with a future instead of being haplessly rolled up by whatever concern crashes into it or that drops in from higher dimensions Victor. We will advance all of those inventions and grant patents that become non-exclusive after three years with ten percent royalties to patent holders in perpetuity. That is the best available way to keep new ideas in production and from being buried under exclusivity and suppression from market of ideas manipulators.”

  1. As the pair neared the space relocator they had fabricated remotely they discovered aspects of the power of the planet size quantum computer for it began collapsing waveforms by infinite numbers around them.
  2. Long ago the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics had developed a Schrödinger wave function collapse that became surpassed by the more accurate Everett many worlds paradigm where the wave function never collapsed; instead a new reality was branched to resembling a Metaverse existing for God with every possible Universe differentiation even by a single quark actually existing. That was quite a different scenario from the venerable Copenhagen interpretation with a quantum particle at all possible location yet at just a single place when observed with the collapse of the wave function…a grounding of the infinite flight of locations and velocity the particle.
  3. Loren and Victor slowed their pace as they were within seventeen hundred meters of the virtual relocator vessel.

Victor said; “Let us yield a little time for the relocator vessel to recognize us and merge its being for itself with our mind fields in-themselves and for-others.”

  1. Loren, your know it occurs to me that quantum interference like that of the double slit experiments might be instructive for getting answers to the questions of how quantum interference occurs in a many worlds, Multiverse paradigm of infinite issues of quantum entanglements and steady states of sub-luminal speed mass comprising universe. Why shouldn’t quantum inference and even universal interference arise to form concentrations of mass across infinite numbers of dimensions?”
  2. “What Victor; do you mean interference patterns generating trans-dimensional black holes?”
  3. “Well, not exactly Loren. Derivatively speaking, what wind of spirit arose to trouble the waters of non-space in the beginning? Why should any initial trans-universal primordial field have differences with a first cause? Perfect symmetries and balances, perfect scale, extension without point of origin, a word spoken into the darkness”?
  4. “Are you making the suggestion that the Metaverse might not be real Victor?”
  5. “Not at all Loren, although it could be that some kind of complex quantum interference patterns are generated by fields external to observable steady states of sub-luminal entangled mass within the Higgs field. Apparent observations and travel like we have made for-ourselves may be macro-extensions of an Everett every possible universe kind that are simply local and made to support out choices.”
  6. “Then the Metaverse may not exist, just our observations and experiences of appearances of what it would be if it did exist because of macro-field interference? That must be a positive value role for interference that is a response to our wave function data and anticipatory future inertial disposition.”
  7. “That might be the way it is Loren. One cannot be certain.
  8. Around them, and across the landscape, the quantum computer directed the collapse of virtual quanta wave functions concentrating trillions and trillions of tons of mass at a single spot building toward immanent formation of a black hole. With foresight entering her mind somewhat inexplicable to herself Loren broke off their experience of the Mbutaag structure and conjecture about the wave function’s referent object system. Their mathematical feet took a shortcut interdimensionally across Hilbert space and tensored them into the super positioned virtual ship relocator existing beyond Schrodinger waveform collapses in all possible worldlines within the hidden Universe. Thought activated their relocator and Loren with Victor exited the collapsing world.
  9. The virtual ship relocator encountered turbulence during the transfer of Loren and Victor to one of the secreted worlds. Virtual relocator reconvened quantum coherence to all possible locations and decohered the quanta into a field that pervaded the Universe located and let three dimensional objects exist in a steady state. Yet there was a paradox in quantum entanglements and quantum transfer between a coherent state as determined by wave function and a decohered state determined by a semblance of wave function collapse; information regarding position and momentum of quanta need exist apart from the quanta itself. The paradox of information about the uncollapsed location of quanta and entanglement of quanta cannot be resolved with a simple account of a continuous field with proximal actions and reaction reciprocals. And the possibility of coherent extra dimensional transfer of information seems equally unlikely without a recursion of host libraries of information going to the initial library of data; perhaps God. For it seems evident that the Gödelian paradigm of the impossibility of a set of all sets containing itself (except for God) within a logical structured paradigm appears relevant for information too; at some level the information of quanta that needs always be meta-quantum existent need coincide with a primary field with no library or information kept apart from the quanta.
  10. If the Metaverse had no information about location and momenta of quanta apart from the quanta initially, the entirety of logically ordered structures or relations among quanta or quantum fields should be improbable.

Lies, Victor thought, are varieties of deceit. They are false information implicitly serving to conceal the truth. And what is the truth he wondered? It is things-in-themselves and things-for-others as they implicitly are without concealment of what they are.

Deceits are false information. Even camouflaging a military position is a deceit. Yet inaccurate knowledge of the nature of the Metaverse isn’t a self-deceit unless one believes it is true, that is, if one realizes that knowledge isn’t absolutely certain and knowledge is the best one has a a likely probability then the true nature of the knowledge subjectively is understood even if the actual facts turn out to be incorrect.

Deceits, Victor thought, are intended to harm or at lest to convey false information weather or not they actually harm. Enfilading lies, revealing the falsehood of a deceit may be easy or challenging, effortless or nearly impossible in real time. If the purpose of a deceit is to harm it may be harmful. Alternatively a falsehood or lie that is evidently false to the receiver of the information given by the lie may be laughably transparent and harmless for it is understood to be a lie; a simple deceit not believed at all. Lies Victor thought further are simply efforts to harm others, or efforts to defend oneself or others from harm in some uses. Lies and deceits of all sorts are an element of the human condition. It may be that Satan whom is said to be the father of lies has made deceit a priority in the very nature of reality in order to bring as many souls as he can to eternal harm ending without faith in Jesus Christ and God.

Victor continued to consider the nature of deceits as the chronometer drew near to zero. He realized he would need to use deceit for himself in order to gain access to the Emporium and the council chamber of the Supreme Parole where he might have a chance to end Maud Dlib. It was not possible to allow her to continue to oversee the plundering of the patentable ideas of the galaxy and even the universe and kill the lives of countless people inhabiting countless planets.

If Satan has a grasp of the mathematical nature of the Metaverse then he may have access to the mathematics of individual human being minds and work his evil maladjustment upon the equations, geometries, calculus and infinite series of mathematical structures comprising each individual mind in relation to its place in the math of the Metaverse. In that context direct insertion of falsehood and wrong answers into the peripheral mathematical structures of a mind would be directly harmful and people would directly believe falsehoods as though the lies of them were their own and from their own thought. Lies and deceits at the extreme end are another form of the effort to harm others. Placing false structures into the minds of others is worse than vandalism; it builds an apparent self-deceit that leads the subjects toward a destiny worse than any imaginable, without concern. Only the Lord Jesus Christ and the workings of the Holy Spirit can bring the correct answers to the lost without perfect mathematically structured minds acceptable to the perfect mathematical structure of God making up the eternal realm of mathematical structures thought to be the phenomena of the Metaverse in-itself.

“Yes”, Kurt replied. “The true nature of God is imponderable perhaps. We humans may known the Lord Jesus Christ in the configuration of the Metaverse. I wonder if the evolution of infinite mathematical structures in infinite dimensions of Hilbert and phase space follows a particular order within so much randomness? I also wonder if randomness becomes regular when extended to infinity, necessarily through infinite recursion and repetition of varieties of very similar random series. If there is a mathematical evolution of everything that exists within the Metaverse structure, and if local phases of it within universes are graduated and sequential manifestations varying just slightly- even by a molecule from an infinite number of others, to what extent the determinism of apparent random selections is a formation of what is possible given the existing structures? It is as if only certain select codes satisfy the possibilities of unlocking an intellectual capital storage vault as reciprocals of a transcending structure that would disallow any non-matching entry.” Kurt looked toward the direction of the sea breeze. The star still was bright in the sky and had moved overhead eliminating shadows.

Maxwell replied; the aliens asked me for knowledge of the relation of mathematics to the most basic theoretical structure of the Metaverse. I believe that knowledge may have been sought long ago in the Garden of Eden when a snake asked of a women to bite an apple she had been ordered by God not to eat. It may be the snake sought to use humanity to learn of the operating system of the Metaverse what it could not for-itself. As you can see of this manufactured world Prime of the aliens there has been some progress in learning ways to manipulate local mathematical structures to configure mass in Higgs field equivalents. Physical addresses of some universes of the Metaverse have been learned mathematically to enable journeys far from the local universe and safe return. That is real progress gained through sorting through all of the patentable ideas existing so far as possible. The leaders of the Serenity Corporation the aliens employ to steal the patents and ideas worth anything believe the project is simply intended to dominate manufactures and control wealth absolutely with it shared in concentration among C.E.O.s and alien elites. Such a naive and greedy outlook missing the point of the aliens search to make of themselves dominant little gods of the Metaverse.”

Let me tell you something about subjective experience and perception Kurt, I believe it is useful here. Individuals experience reality personally, subjectively. The phenomena of mind is that of consciousness interpreting atomistic content reaching it through eyes and skin, ears and taste from the field phenomena of a universe. There are common social experiences of perceptible aspects of a field; that is everyone with healthy organs of perceiving atomistic content as data can share a similar though not exactly duplicate experience for example of the solidity of the ground of a planet they may stand upon or of the photons reaching their eyes from a star. Perceptions of atomistic data that aren’t common experience that anyone usual may have, that is experiences that are completely subjective and not shared in the common realm of perceptible quanta remain personal. If God visits a miracle onto an individual the experience cannot be shared in the common realm with others as a directly perceptible experience. God may in theory visit an individual mind directly without need for the use of the field of potentially perceptible quanta, yet alternatively, he is free to shape the material quanta for interpretation through the senses of the intended perceiver subjectively. This echo chamber in some respects transcends the boundaries of subjective perception and makes a universal local area network of the mind or minds of those entering the chamber. If we use the echo chamber our minds will be superpositioned in all of the locations of echo chambers of the local area network that is presumably that of the Prime planetary structure. Our minds will be super-positioned without waveform collapse to a particular location.

“Maxwell explained to Kurt; “While infinite dimensions can exist recursively in one point of space without time or space no actualize for observers; in fact Ehrenfest interference delimits data from higher numbers of dimensions to lower numbers. Complexity and subtlety arise in greater compilations of dimensions than in lower that is filtered out generally from trans-universal infinities of cloning, duplicate universes. So universes with lower numbers of dimensions may have self-standing laws, data and content even while the Meta-universal host field sustains them from zero to n-dimensions.

I am becoming familiar with the adaptations and changes made to my echo chamber by the aliens Kurt. I can see the basic math structures of the Metaverse through a glass darkly as it were…a capacity the aliens haven’t refined their visions sufficiently to equal yet. So they are limited in their use of the echo chambers to their own universe and the Hexi corridor that they have fitted between the original universe, the hidden universe and the Rhomboid universe.

The Hexi corridor actually may readily be adapted to provide access to infinite universes of the Metaverse that itself is infinitely incomprehensible spatially, dimensionally and in regard to time as it is forever increasing beyond the grasp of intellect. It would be an error to allow the aliens the opportunity to learn of the potential use of the echo chamber that is for them little more than a fast transport and surveillance tool over the populous of three universes (so far as they have with the obvious exception of the Dwindling worlds).

All of the Metaverse’s mathematical structures are in the mind-plan of God; the modge panc. I can adjust the local math of spaces and dimensions the echo chamber provides existence in for us, and will make a few alterations before we exit near stage left at the heart of the Prime planet.

  1. Loren said;”There are two basic forms of government for human worlds these days Kurt. Those that seek to concentrate wealth in a tiny minority and make slave laborers and happy work minions of everyone else, and those that prefer free enterprise and democracy with limits to capital acquisition as it threatens the integrity of elections and enterprise. The Dwindling worlds as you may be aware prefer free enterprise with capital concentration defense caps as a better way to develop human potential. Corporatism and even communism share imperial political goals in the sense that power is concentrated and the majority are repressed and conditioned by the minority holding the reins of wealth and power. We suspect that the theft of the intellectual from the Sendufax vault was directed by our opposition forces and affiliates. The number of minions working to make slaves of themselves and to become subjects of imperial forces is fundamentally without limit. Evidently a modicum of intelligence and creative thought is requisite for comprehending the nature of imperial-corporatist-communist political power concentration.”

Two poems

Poor or PhD

Dirty broken poor plan
wrap up bespoken lutes
nothing today’s clever
why silence equals truth

Nothing today’s clever
nothing complete yet is
something today evers
as if time never was

Something today evers
through each new kind of dream
dirty broken poor plan
masses huddled, cold pings.

Space sailing update

Jesus savior pilot me;
across a Multiverse’s troubled seas
extra dimensions ahead
infinite universes behind
lead me beyond omegas
of unstable, temporal non-primes.

The second poem is an adaptation of a famous one ‘Jesus Savior Pilot Me’

Skoolya and liquid computers (fiction from Spirit and the Martian Art)

As they walked down the street they could not miss the fact that the buildings occupied just one side and the opposite was vacant giving a vista of a great valley with mountains beyond. Reaching the restaurant a sign proclaimed it the Good Shit Cafe. They sat down at a table and a waiter appeared with a menu for each.

  “Good morning travelers” the waiter said.

“Good morning; just water and croissants for us with vita-spread. Let us have a bottle of liquid computer too” Loren replied.

  The water left and returned quickly with their order. Victor opened the large clear bottle with swirling images inside and poured the viscous liquid onto the tables’ surface.

  Liquid computers were powered solar photon collecting intelligent and self ordering liquid crystals with their own implicit memories capable of forming their own structure internally and externally; usefully adaptive to angles of solar power input and operating criterion for the shape of being. Able to adapt their viscosity across a full range of solid to liquid they were interpreters of broad band frequencies.

  The computer became a full circle angled toward the sunlight from a star over the valley and began displaying an advertisement for world conquering software.

  Skoolya systems offered a plan for a pittance that detailed the way a criminal minority could concentrate wealth and takeover political power from a majority on a frontier planet by setting restive internal proletariats and political minorities against the majority; dividing and conquering while sympathizing with the minorities against the majority political power that was a rival to the upwardly mobile criminal minority seeking to concentrate wealth for-itself. The advertisement claimed that a tiny criminal minority of less than one percent of the population could control ninety-nine percent of a planet’s wealth by appealing to and unifying a numerical majority of the populous against a power majority that is the rival to the criminal minority.

  The ad explained criminal imperialism can draw in broad allegiance against democracy politically, eliminate taxation of the rich and downgrade the former majority political power rivals; apparently the newly empowered political classes that replace the previous founding class of a democracy would have no concern politically beyond trading places with the former majority political power that had repressed the concentration of wealth through taxation and democratic means of governing. The satisfaction of being the perceived new majority political power would blind the new political power to their role as minions of their sponsoring and coordinating political overlords that own the public media, planetary business and finance political campaigns. The way to own a world politically could be purchased from Skoolya for just five easy payments of some paltry sum such as a tenth of a planet’s gross space output and the marriage of an heir to one of the junior executives of Skoolya.

  “Skoolya’s got an interesting, feasible plan for orchestrating takeover of a world economy by a criminal gang non-violently. The there is the additional lesson plan for manipulating elites to support the imperial control for environmental reasons of ostensible necessity of reducing global population to sustainable environmental levels; social engineering methods applying solid criminal enterprises of mind altering drugs, sop jobs with good pay instead of ubiquitous robotics and the elimination of morals to lead the populace into a withering yet contented condition of population decrease. Ancient Earth’s population drop from ten billion to a sustainable two billion (before final elimination of the non-criminal rich) was held as a prototype proof of concept”. Victor looked a little worried about the ad.

  “Well Victor”, Loren said; that is a Cherybdis or Scylla approach to a kit for building a Criminal Imperial Empire; the home grown non violently coerce of subtle and constant coercion of a population leading itself to destruction or the main stream just establish a base and blast the population away with neutron bombs approach your planet of Mars experienced. It is remarkable that populations groomed by criminal imperialist gangs to takeover democracies never see the criminals as threats to democracy in-themselves. Propaganda through public communications media obfuscates the simple fact that free enterprise democracy with high progressive taxation can defend democracy from both criminal imperialism and authoritarian communism” Loren suggested.

   “Sure Loren, free enterprise and democracy with high progressive taxation keeps wealth concentration below half of planets total wealth resources and democracy alive. With function free enterprise democracy the flourishes a marketplace of ideas that find solutions to environmental challenges. Mars was moving that way to a limited extent in the decades before the arrival of Serenity and the N.T.S.A. Some democracy activists sought to be as free as the main sequence economies of the Dwindling Worlds before the attrition there began.” Victor finished and took a deep swig from the bottle of ice water.

  The liquid computer advertisement concluded and the main menu appeared.

  “Solving the environment and biospheric decline challenges while adapting a planetary economy to realistic challenges of population increase, and natural resource limits can be done with free enterprise democracies if the delusions of the masses concerning functions of democracies and economic systems as self-regulating without need for intelligent human design can be enfiladed.

Social media logic and monopoly issues

  Google recently sent me an email concerning my blog to let me know that it doesn’t appear in search engine listings well and afforded me the opportunity to fix that. I wish I could help google write computer code so my search engine does appear in search engines often enough to get a thousand views a day as it did until the Obama administration was in office a year instead of the 1 to 5 views it averages these days.

 When big search engine corporations like Google need help from writers to fix their html code so their search faculty works kinda good that may indicate something is wrong. I just don’t have the time to learn to be a good html programmer especially since the place I live in Alaska hasn’t got cell phone service, electricity or a road yet.

I did spend quite a few years periodically trying to tweak the html code to make the search stuff work better. Another issue I couldn’t solve is that the blog hasn’t earned a single penny since the Obama administration when it froze at 63 dollars and 78 cents. Maybe MSN can consult with google on how to make search engine listings work and coach them on writing html code (just an idea).

The other big web business issue is about Amazon.com. How can it be a monopoly since I buy about all of that sort of stuff at ebay? If it is like Standard oil was in the Rockefeller era or like Bell telephone before the break up, shouldn’t there at least be collusion between ebay, Alibaba and Amazon to control the world market for on-line sales? And what about Wal-mart since they too have on line sales?

Maybe the issue is really about search engine listings and what shows up. I don’t know. perhaps experts at html code writing should review the stuff sorting out what everyone sees on line.

Medicare Reform

Shouldn’t Medicare include the provision that no one pay more than 10% of their income for full coverage? If some people need to pay a quarter or a third of their income for medical coverage, Medicare really isn’t affordable for everyone. Although the national economy is developing to concentrate wealth and power as never before in U.S. history it would seem reasonable that the very poor shouldn’t pay as much as the middle class for equal medical coverage in the Medicare program.

Optimal foraging theory may account for the way natural resource extraction develops in a market economy with citizen/minions with allegiance to corporations and imperialism instead of democracy (progressive taxation is requisite for democracies to survive the shift toward aristocracy concentrating wealth) and blinded by a broadcast media dedicated to the proposition that all profits should mainly trickle up to Wall Street. Human health however should not be a function of the way optimal foraging profit skimmers of Wall Street and D.C. corporatism view maximally efficient markets with efficiency defined by a what concentrates wealth best to 1% metric.

It seems wrong to me that prosperous retirees get very cheap full coverage covering everything from doctors to hospital stays and drugs while the poor get just free hospice care and some hospital stays. Evidently both major parties feel the best place for Americans to have equal affordable Medicare coverage is in death.

              Chapter One

       Herniated space

                 A loud raven caw crossing space disrupted sky domination of subtle chirp birds in the bush. The big black bird sounded friendly to Kurt like bright afternoon sunshine unconcerned with the splattered state of the world. When perceived the black feathers-for-others absorbed photons though the color for-itself uninterpreted by human eyes was as empty as the heart of darkness passing through local time. 

       Kurt Simagin heard the raven sound on many Y’Earth like planets. He recognized the intelligent bird as a friendly enough being. It was good to hear the sound in thornish scrub desert brambles on a Composition Nine traveler’s world. Partially decomposed bodies littered the landscape complicating contemporary history.  Simagin’s immediate task was to sort out the evidence of the place assigned by Delta Taco Tier One. Activating Simagin was the prerogative of the independent security consortium of the constellation of dwindled worlds seeking to keep a semblance of freedom from one of many evil empires littering the Universe.

          Simagin understood that when God created a Universe it was developed in a two-dimensional line of energy that was expanded to three dimensions like a membrane with the addition of a Higgs field. Stretching the line energy out over three dimensions made a Higgs Field of virtual energy of vast extent. Within the Higgs field might arise three-dimensional particles from the two-dimensional massless particles of the field itself as they became tangled up in the field overlapping themselves and bringing in to being the effect of three-dimensional particles with mass from massless two-dimensional particles. In such a way a Universe was born as George Lemaitre and Allan Guth had speculated about in the days before the discovery of the nature of the field. An infinite number of Universe membrane files existed next to one another in the special Modge Panc cabinet of teleological design. Each membrane could entail a limitless number of contingent dimensions and branches for spun-off Universes. Sometimes wickedness broke out interdimensionally within these Universes and slaughters of innocents and not-so-innocents and downright wicked beings occurred. Then, Kurt Simagin or some other Tier three operator was assigned to sort out and interdict if possible, for preventative and merciful reasons those perpetrators and causes that had brought the shift into beaning. 

          Corpses were strewn in a rough perimeter and obviously had been posthumously munched on by Claxsop spiders that lived amid the dense foliage along the winding desert river. The Livid River had scoured out a valley overlapping centuries with the work of abrasive erosion. A few flying defense drones resembling wrens still glowed with blue light though inactive and broken around the scene of the last stand of a Bankop squad. Simagin looked around for sign of alien opposition forces, and then used a field sensor to scan for electro-magnetic and visual presence of opfor biological and mechanisms. He wondered what haters could have terminated the journey banker-warrior squad. So, he found a good-sized boulder to set down upon then built a lush global warming campfire to heat a cup of highland coffee to a scalding degree to take the edge of the experience. 

           He knew that some investigators had developed psychological trauma that reverberated around their minds from seeing such travesties and was therefore took defensive countermeasures to prevent p.t.e.d. A memory of Mistress Sally making a stimulus check on him verged up from the deep; they’d shared r.e.m. and she do’oothed him right on the spot. He reminded himself not to be distracted thinking about the past too much in the field when Cannaemites could be advancing toward their quarry beyond his field of vision. Zvimmer, Kurt’s emotional support coyote, rested on the ground looking outward toward likely enemy avenues of approach. Looking up, he smiled at Kurt than pawed a bone in the ground and began gnawing it.

          Kurt wanted to consider the motivations that could have prompted the mini-battle that was a last stand for the banker-squad. Forming ideas that would arise from his subconscious mind into awareness he knew, could be induced by putting his thought onto some other topic during which the unrelated solutions or suggestions of solution might appear from the depths. His head-band guarded against impacts with a layer of battery gel stuffed with intelligent nano-machine electronics and communication structures. He said to it; -” Play the video about the guy seeking the American dream of building and owning his own storage shed.”

          A flying square of opaque nano-rasters appeared hovering in front of his eyes presenting the movie on a ten-inch screen. The nanorasters could visualize any sort of idea with A.I. tweak-work besides standard digital video then disappear to his combat battle-dress battery defense vest. Kurt watched Pedro Cordoba carrying lumber on his shoulder through a dark forest walking uphill and crossing muskeg bog over and over again reminding him of the myth of Sisyphus, yet in time a storage shed began to form at the top of the trail. The winter struck and the little building was buried under snow and ice. The Neo-KGB discerned his activity in the forest and sent legions of harpies to impede his attempt to build the American dream. Pedro suffered a dislocated should and then a torn rotator cuff and left for the winter in a small open boat from the edge of the forest traveling down the coast a couple of hundred miles. The further adventures of Pedro interested Simagin, yet he had pressing details to look at over the killing ground, so he finished the last of the coffee, got up and walked about the area stopping at a pile of remains. He toed up and used a foot to flip over the body that remained about 60% complete

          The bankop operative’s remains had a residual glow about them that indicated to Kurt that he had recently been in a capital accumulation vault that marked workers with silo-dye. There were just a few facilities in the galaxy able to afford the process of infusing quark-dye into the epidermis of visitors. 

       Kurt was a skeptic concerning the prospects for improvements to the character of the human species that were publicized whenever new facts or speculation about Higgs field related discoveries were made. Gravity occurs at light speed, and that would be natural if light speed is the norm for massless particle-waves or energy not slowed down to three dimensions. When energy becomes entangled from two dimensions to three and becomes embedded in a steady state in the Higgs Field, the aggregation of mass in the field reshapes the field and draws other mass toward it in field curvature. The field itself may act at the speed of light and create the appearance of gravity acting at the speed of light. If the field is expanding or is something is acting upon the field that isn’t of the three-dimensional mass the Higgs Field could seem to be causing space to expand. There is an obvious way to regard that condition though; aggregation of mass that causes the Field to warp and attract mass may reciprocally expand space of the field bereft of elements of the field drawn in the Higgs Field and mass interactive aggregation situation.

         Gravity is a marvelous thing. If it is an appearance because people see through a glass darkly embedded in the mass of particle-waves slowed down to sub-light speed in the Higgs Field, humans at least have the promise of discovering how it arises someday. Like the time when Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son Isaac by God, and Abraham showed he had such faith in God existing so as to be regarded as worthy of the promise, the appearance of gravity on this side of the cloud of unknowing may someday be rewarded by the saving grace of truth appearing; as when God sacrificed His Son Jesus Christ to save all of those of faith. The truth will set gravity theorists free.

          Some people wonder about the relationship of God to the Universe and how the theory of evolution juxtaposes with the explanation of creation provided in the Bible. The accounts of contemporary cosmology and of the book of Genesis aren’t in necessary contradiction or even in conflict as superficial reading or analysis indicates to some, though most haven’t troubled to look to far into either field.   Consider what an eternal being who could create a Higgs field with a thought, or a thought of a field that has always existed like a library of every possible idea or universe that could ever exist, completely existing with God, would want to tell beings in a universe or thermodynamic process that he actualized, about how it came to be.  Kurt imagined imagining what kind of reconciliation he would try and thought that He might say briefly that; “I saw nothingness and brought light to it and over a period of time -days for you I will call them since general relativity wasn’t existing yet nor even special relativity or energy and mass- I brought stars and dust to exist and man evolved innocently in an Eden of blissful ignorance until he/you/they grew smart enough to cultivate orchards, plant crops and etc. You were de facto booted out of Eden, into clothing, guilt with the knowledge of good and evil’s difference and into the realm of Cain kills-his-brother-Abel just to continue evolving in a wild format until I tried to correct your existential estrangement from my way of peace, wisdom and so forth. Your first civilization, incidentally, was located at a spot that is now beneath the Persian Gulf. At least there was one guy who followed my warnings about the rising global sea level during the end of the Wisconsin ice age. He- Noah and his family build a boat and survived the flood that drowned those wicked people that kept going on with their immoral drift of destruction. Noah’s sons went out to people living south of the Mediterranean Sea and became leaders, somewhat like the Verangian Vikings became leaders of Slavs living around the city they founded at Kiev. Hey, that brings you up to Charles Darwin and the present time with all of the interesting questions you can create concerning the paradoxes of the Higgs field, of mass, energy, space, time, a plethora of universes and modal logic possibilities without end.

         It is a great time to be alive except for the planetary destruction of the ecosphere and so forth. The problem about ignoring my son’s (Jesus Christ) prophecy concerning the great first century tribulation should have been surprising to me yet it wasn’t of course. Some of you are still looking for a great tribulation and take that paradigm as an excuse to keep destroying the environment and to stop building the kingdom of God up on Earth through an egalitarian, literate priesthood of believers. I am supposed to be resting now though, so I’ll get back to you on that.” 

          Kurt listened to the gently flowing water of the livid river and contemplated the fate of the corpse. Was the bankop saved? He thought that very unlikely, and remembered fragments of Baxter’s ethics written so many centuries before from Directory IX. ‘When you have found yourselves in a state of sin and death, understand and consider what a state that is.’ It may be you will think it a tolerable condition, and linger in it, as if you were safe; or delay your repentance, as if it were a matter of no great haste; unless you open your eyes, and look round about you, and see in how slippery a place you stand. Let me name some instances of the misery of an unregenerate, graceless state, and then judge of it as the Word of God directs you. 

          As long as you are unconverted, you must needs be loathsome and abominable to God^. His holy nature is irreconcilable to sin, and would be irreconcilable to sinners, if it were not that he can cleanse and purify them. Did you know what sin is, and know God’s holiness, you would understand this much better. Your own averseness to God, and your dislike of the holiness of his laws and servants, might tell you what thoughts he hath of you. “He hateth all the workers of iniquity’.” Indeed, he taketh you for his enemies, and as such he will handle you, if you be not converted.

          Some think it strange that any men should be called ” haters of God;” and I believe you will find it hard to meet with that man that will confess it by himself, till converting grace or hell constrain him. And indeed, if God himself had not charged men with that sin, and called them by that name, we should scarce have found belief or patience when we had endeavored to convince the world of it.

          Why did the world hate Christ himself? He tells you,” The world cannot hate you, but me it hateth, because I testify against it, that the works thereof are evil’.””This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved dark rather than light, because their deeds were evil”

          It is a wonder of blindness,  that this God-hating world and age, should not perceive that they are God-haters, while they hate his servants to the death. and implacably rage against them, and hate his holy ways and kingdom, and bead all their power and interest in most of the kingdoms of the world, against his interest and his people upon earth: while the devil fights his battles against Christ through the world, by their hands, they will yet confess the devil’s malice against God, but deny their own; as if he used their hands without their hearts”

  The traveler’s world was littered with micro-surveillance grains scattered like dust from globe encompassing drones. Kurt asked his smart unit to check the status of the chess engine first responder to live threats anywhere on the planet. It would know if macro-sized opposition forces were active and determine the best countermeasures as controller even scaled up to battlefield size. Nothing active was indicated the smart speaker said. Kurt thought that strange yet not entirely inconsistent with modern tech.

          Maybe bankop constructions were doomed to fail, being too small of socioeconomic stature to rate any sort of success. Kurt took a biological survey unit from his carry belt and reached down to scoop in some of the less viscous portion of the corpse. Human-like beings are mostly made of water with a few pounds of well-structured chemicals thrown in, and they can be changed quickly or with evolving morphogenesis.

  The unit beeped a ready result, so Kurt said; “What is it?”

  “The composition is a dead bankop D.N.A. design that catastrophically evolved with input water/nano remix to the non-living compresence sampled.”

        Kurt thought about what the unit said for a few seconds then put it back on his belt. He knew that quality D.N.A. rapid evolver agents were costly outside of the prime urban star systems of the galaxy, and this particular composition nine traveler’s world Sendufax was thousands of light years from galaxy urban bands. Therefore, the primary agents of nihilistic evolution were likely to be well-financed.

       Sendufax had paradigmatically similar planetary infrastructure to that of common travelers’ worlds built at useful locations. Within its core was an adjustable gravity dynamo that contained concentrated heavy metal mass. The mass characteristics could be increased with super-positioned particles entangled around the galaxy emerging at targeted spots as virtual mass increasing and altering the mass structure up the periodic table beyond Einsteinium to heavier forms of packing. Kurt adjusted the gravity dynamo’s field characteristics with a multi-tool controller on his belt to lighten Sendufax’s field a little so he could move about the world a little easier. He knew he had a long day ahead of him and thought conserving energy a good idea.

Kurt looked at Zvimmer and said; “hey Yo, I have thought of something that reminds me of how problems expand. Maybe we will get a clue on how to narrow down the avenues of egress and identity of the agency that perpetrated the slaughter of the bankops littered about. And need I remind you not to chow down on any of the poor sod’s remains. Consider the infinite expansion of the dough of the Cookie-verse.”

Zvimmer growled. 

“No worry Zvimmer, this is an analogy of edification. Scientists running experiments at cosmological scale and quantum ingredient size determined that the dough-space of the cookie-verse is expanding. What is more, is that the Cookie-verse isn’t unique; it is just one of an infinite number of cookies cut out and baked from a singularity on a cookie sheet that inflated faster than light for a fraction of a second (relatively speaking). When the expansion stopped each cookie at its own special moment baked itself with a big bang and its own fine-temperature randomly selected cookie law constants to become a cookie in time with thermodynamics bring it to consume itself and gradually be digested in some instances by sentient being evolved within a cookie.

Each cookie verse if it had sentient products evolving from its special constant physical values (selected by random chance from a nearly infinite number of variables-modeling cookie recipes is simpler with an infinite number of variables and with constants being just nominal selections of ingredient baking temperatures and times) would find its sentients consuming the cookie itself.

Sentients within a cookie-verse would learn that the constants of the cookie that are baked in might have been very different indeed. Instead of gravity having the value of coconuts it might have been sugar sprinkles. Instead of various quantum values of vanilla it might have been chocolate or peppermint etc. The most informative and marvelous discovery of cookie baker mathematician scientists for-themselves might have been the discovery that besides eternal inflation of cookie dough and infinite cookie-verses- each cookie-verse dough from a cookie sheet branch would expand in an infinite number of directions in what was modeled as the infinite dimensions of Hilbert space. 

 Gauss Hilbert was one of the greatest of cookie baking theorists of all time. He consulted with Albertus Einstein concerning the nature of cookie dough in the general and special theories of cookie dough. Cookie dough was determined to stretch or collapse under the influence of dark matter (a very special ingredient) as opposed to dark energy that can expand space time again within a baked cookie. Evidently cookie dough space can reappear within baked cookies as cookie-verses remain within the eternal realm of the Great Cookie hosting all cookie-verses. Our cookie-verse was discovered to have resumed expanding about 25 years ago and may accelerate until it no longer could be said to exist, yet after the cookie-verse has consumed itself with thermodynamics. This seems to be a self cleaning oven implicitly contained within the space dough.

The Great Cookie-verse is comparable to an infinite fractal that can create infinite branch and cookie sheets within itself and infinite dimensions with the signal difference that all of its cookies have variable constants for there seems to be nothing constant except values of expansive space dough and mathematical forms representing cookie verse values- the latter being constant in the sense they are always subject to change in the Parmenidean sense of water flowing under the bridge always changing yet the river never changes as well as the opposite viewpoint of Heraclitus that one can never step into the same river twice because it is always changing. What is in motion stays in motion except for the object itself because it is only moving in relation to other objects that aren’t or that are moving at a different speed. The Great Cookie is marvelous an may occupy no more actual space than a singularity- an idea in the thought of the Great Cookie baker with the hyper-dimensional variable fractals requiring no space to exist within at all.”

Isn’t it about time we move upriver toward the settlement on the Haitian mesa? Common Zvimmer. Kurt started walking along the river bank; Zvimmer got up and trotted alongside.

 “Yes Zvimmer; the local region of dough on a cookie sheet that breaks off in one of ten to the 500th power varieties of phase space to become a uniquely valued cookie-verse- except for an infinite number of other inaccessible cookies with the same initial local constants- was the model for astrophysics cookie baker researches informing us of the nature of the Great cookie containing all cookie-verses and space dough.”

Zvimmer dropped the bone he had in his mouth and tilted his head to look curiously at Simagin.

Kurt stopped for a minute along the path following the Livid River northwest. He and Zvimmer wore foot to calf length field boots protecting them from lower extremity attacks and providing a ten-fold increase over human strength. Field operatives seldom contracted ankle or knee injuries if they were human, and if not, the damaged extremity could be replaced with replaceable snap-in leg units. Kurt and Zvimmer had made planetfall from a near speed of light event retro-drop originating at a local diminished worlds alliance entrepot base named Cargone. After landing with powered-chutes floating and collecting star electrons in descent the equipment was switched off to lower opposition force surveillance detection signatures. Simagin now activated the power legs for Zvimmer and himself.

  The sky turned blood red and an ominous wind arose throwing a haze of Sendufaxan dust aloft occluding vision. Sendufax was locked in a stationary geocentric orbit mid-way between twin red dwarf stars orbiting one another. Evidently the color compensation unit for the planet had switched off. Kurt thought that not a good sign. He and Zvimmer continued on their way toward the high Haitian mesa gradually increasing slope decreasing the distance between themselves and the Traveler’s world settlement of Gold Plum.

 Along the path the river flowed past the point of nihilism named for an early in Sendufaxan history conflict where an Obelisk commemorated the culminating skirmish. A few more bankop bodies were strewn here. Zvimmer pawed one such as used both front paws to dig next to it. His work revealed a yellow brick, so Kurt walked over to take a look.

  “Move aside Zvim; let me see what you’ve found.”

   Zvim trotted away to survey other corpses that were more fresh than the last group a mile south-west. Kurt kicked away more dirt revealing more brick units of what was apparently a yellow brick road beneath the Livid River path. An interesting finding he thought and filed away in memory. He said;

“Let’s go Zvim; it’s time to move on.”

 Desert lands were less expensive to develop than forestland and mountains on Traveler’s worlds so deserts tended to be the most common environment encountered. Mountains were even costlier because of the lop-sided gravity balancing compensators required to stabilize a planet with unequally allocated mass at a planetary surface. Zvim and Kurt liked mountains though so they experienced increase alienness passing through the red haze of the desert moving quickly toward a broad, elevated mesa becoming visible in the distance.

With so many bankop casualties- far more than Kurt expected to find from his info-brief supplied by the company client, it was easy to infer that something meaningful had occurred here; a conflict involving property of some kind usually as that was the source of most conflicts. Kurt had a direct-fire weapon ready though hoping not to need to use it soon. He queried his aux memory chip in the battery defense vest about the Haitian settlement.

 The A.I. said; the settlement of Golden Plum as 100 regular service personnel and the Markmuster Inn rooms for three-hundred. The Inn has a level four security vault; more than is required for ordinary travelling security, advanced communications at a facility owned by a shell corporation the identity of which is screened. Incidentally thirty of the one-hundred persons on the Markmuster staff are security personnel; that is quite a large number for an ordinary traveler’s world.”

  Atop the Mesa Kurt saw a few explosions, laser lights in the red gloom. He and Zvim increased their pace in the attempt to reach Golden Plum before the end of the conflict.

Simagin and Zvimmer’s increasing pace covered the remaining five miles to Golden Plum in a few minutes. The war in a teacup raged on. Kurt and Zvimmer dropped to the ground at the crest approach to the mesa to survey the battle to discern participants before entering the fray.

Golden Plum was being battered, bruised and assaulted with multi-phase techno weapons from a so far invisible attacker. Kurt saw bank operative cadre like those on the path below falling to the soil, variegated in posichs of killing insults to life. Kurt and Zvimmer experienced a distracting, painful audio buzz of weaponized infrasound that was evidently settle-wide as an element of full spectrum battle with obvious nuclear and atomic disarrays excised from the battle toolkit. As Kurt and Zvimmer rose to get a closer look a sudden explosion through the roof of the Markmuster Inn was followed by a bright as a nuke extrusion broadbeam fading off above the world into nothingness while the last bankop and security personnel were smoldering lumps on the ground.

 Walking carefully into Golden Plumb it was obviously squashed down to the stage or requiring complete replacement by the Dwindling Worlds tourist bureau. They surveyed the scene of macabre death with bodies flung like wet hot cooked spaghetti strands onto the exterior of the Markmuster. Kurt whistled to Zvimmer to stay on guard before entering the Inn.

  The hotel lobby was a shambles and before the front desk was a gaping thirty foot smoking hole going deep below to an empty Level four security vault. Kurt shot an explosive climbing bolt into the front desk and fast roped down to the fourth subterranean level of the vault. It was empty; he wondered what had been within it that was worth annihilating one-hundred souls. Kurt zipped up the rope to the surface and walked over the lobby to the main door.

Exiting the Markmuster Kurt and Zvimmer found what remained of the security and communication building. Plainly commo had been cut early in the battle. Kurt’s client must have been in a local region of the galaxy- or at least had a branch base close enough to Sendufax to learn of the initial phase of attack and hire his company to send someone to look into it. Maybe they were located on Cargone like himself and able to respond quickly. Kurt found some component spares and restored to communications to let H.Q. know of his finding of the state of Sendufax.

Kurt and Zvimmer after exiting the Inn walked over to a debris free plaza somewhat centralized amidst the wreckage. Kurt said to Zvimmer; “Yo, I hate to say that we haven’t anything to eat, I believed we could grab a bite here at one of the settlement’s restaurants. Why don’t you go out and scout about for a few dumb animal steaks in one of the refrigerator units of the stores and I will build a small global warming campfire to flame em over.”

  Zvim eagerly loped off on his quest to find dinner. Kurt gathered firewood from shattered building facades and window frames and carried it to a fire-pit that he excavated with a small frag grenade. The suddenly as a dark cloud could block sunlight, the red sky darkened further and the dust storm that had yet to abate.

A peanut star atmospheric entry ship descend unto the edge of the plaza, blew its hatch and from it strode a tall woman dressed in a transparent business suit wearing a specop combat battery helmet. The suit absorbed and recycled all bodily waste before adding some of its content with structure support atoms into the wearer over time fading away to nothing. When it was perfectly clear it was a fresh issue, gradually changing color toward the end of its life. Business field suits absorbed energy and useful molecular structures from the environment, including oxygen. She looked directly at Kurt who was some 60 meters away and walked toward him.

 “I see from your D.N.A. patterns that you are Kurt Simagin. I am Loren Klure from the Dwindling Worlds accounting office. They sent me here about the same time as you via your company h.q., yet I was farther away aboard a Tachycore space vessel investigating a meta-issue and was retasked here to survey the Sendufax vault. It is, or was, a classified high level secure temporal vault we used to cache advanced intellectual capital patents enroute to more secure facilities.”

 “Well I can tell you Loren that your secure vault is quite empty. Some kind of particle beam emerged from it and disappeared into off-whirld space when I arrived. We were about to start making dinner arrangements, would you like to join us for flamed dumb meat?”

 “Who else is with you?”

 “My smart coyote, Zvimmer.”

 As if on cue Zimmer arrived with a sealed pack of several dumb meat steaks certified from Veggimanitarians to have been grown pain-free salvaged from a local spiffy-mart.

Zvim dropped the steaks at Kurt’s feet and trotted over to smell the new arrival. She patted his head briefly and Zvimmer returned to sit near the fire looking outwardly on watch for untoward movement down likely avenues of approach.

  Kurt took a few sharp metal fragments from a cheap statue destroyed in a blast and fashioned several skewers for the meat setting them with the meat above the dry wood he set burning with a micro-torch.

Loren walked over and sat down on a crushed electro-float transporter followed by Kurt. 

She said; let’s talk about what happened here Simagin. I am a forensic accountant for the office, or was initially before specialized training in a related field, and think it would be useful to compare ideas with you concerning the exfiltrated or destroyed intellectual capital that has more value than we can put a price on.”

“Yeah, well Zvim and I found a skein of skirmish casualties of your bankops down the Livid River. I would guess bankops investigating unusual scouting presence signs were on-scene and terminated by the opposition element that moved swiftly to fully engage the limited and ineffective bankops security people stationed here. Bankops downriver encountered the lead element of a superior force and were directly rolled up by the opposition who took the intellectual capital from the Markmuster Inn and exfiltrated to points unknown. How is that Loren?”

“Good enough Kurt; and logical. The Dwindling worlds have experienced loss of intellectual props that emerge in a variety of forms elsewhere and elsewhen about the infinite Meta-verse. Reasonably enough we would like to slow down or stop the thefts and sabotages. 

 Zvimmer moved in to look at the steaks that were becoming well done dripping juicy sizzling fat into the fire. Kurt moved a skewer off to let a steak cool for Zimmer. He asked Loren; “How do you like yours Loren?”

“Medium rare would be fine Kurt.”

“So it is Loren” he said handing her a skewer with a large chunk of very tender dumb beast meat slaughtered with compassionate butchering.

Loren said;”There are two basic forms of government for human worlds these days Kurt. Those that seek to concentrate wealth in a tiny minority and make slave laborers and happy work minions of everyone else, and those that prefer free enterprise and democracy with limits to capital acquisition as it threatens the integrity of elections and enterprise. The Dwindling worlds as you may be aware prefer free enterprise with capital concentration defense caps as a better way to develop human potential. Corporatism and even communism share imperial political goals in the sense that power is concentrated and the majority are repressed and conditioned by the minority holding the reins of wealth and power. We suspect that the theft of the intellectual from the Sendufax vault was directed by our opposition forces and affiliates. The number of minions working to make slaves of themselves and to become subjects of imperial forces is fundamentally without limit. Evidently a modicum of intelligence and creative thought is requisite for comprehending the nature of imperial-corporatist-communist political power concentration.”

 Kurt had taken his own skewer of dumb beast steak and took a large bite. “This steak is pretty tasty” he said.

“Yes, it is very agreeable” Loren replied taking another bite.

 “In my opinion”, said Kurt continuing on Loren’s idea, “elites concentrating wealth and power would seek to objectively transform human subjects into quantitative mass for simpler processing and utilization. Mass social identity cloned into archetypes with psychological conditioning, individual identity and differentiation of thought restricted and eliminated whenever possible- reducing human society to quantities of material existence, input, output and throughput vectors most useful for the further concentration of wealth and power to the elites with the reciprocal of human herd contentedness in becoming total subject minions of the elites.”

 “That is a grim way to put it Kurt, though accurate enough. A corollary would be the theft of intellectual properties from independent worlds and individuals within a broader spectrum war on objectively independent, non-conformist to power singularities free enterprise, egalitarian democratic-republic planets.”

  Zvim watched the pair of humans for signs of beast poisoning entrapment, and satisfied that the meat was clean of poison traps went to the skewer and took his piece of beast steak in his teeth.

Kurt said; “When you finish off the meat why don’t you look around the settlement for anything that would help us discover who and where the perps are and went Yo?”

 Yo with his steak trotted off into the red darkness of Golden Plum.

“Seeing the night through rose-colored glasses can become tiresome, I will ask the office to expedite restoration of Sendufax”, and she spoke to a link to her ship in stationary position above the atmosphere.

“I’ve encountered corporate religions at the edge of a few of the empires I have encountered over the years. They tend to become syncretistic and jettison inconvenient elements from historical holy books like the Christian-Jewish Bible. In some societies Sunday worship comprises viewing commercial entertainment sporting events.”

‘Those are troubling histories Kurt, yet consider that atheism and avarice are normalized elite characteristics even if it is avarice for power and control of all others. They may emulate the sadist’s pleasure of controlling the interior of others- the thoughts and minds of sentient beings – in order to support their self-conception as ontological gods.

 I don’t know if you have given it much thought; there are n number of possible economic configurations for a world, a galaxy and economics locally, yet humans tend to select those that are less than optimal in regard to egalitarian allocations of opportunity for individual maximization of potential, and that are deleterious of the ecosphere within their self-sustaining geo-temporal region. Humans are their own monkey wrench to the ecosphere as they develop comfort and power, intelligence and technology. Eventually elites wrench social development and concentrate power to themselves with an occasional false conscious belief that they are benefactors of humanity or of societies by enslaving them. The work of the dwindling worlds is to offset that historical bias with reinforcement of individualism, free enterprise and freedom of religious thought in addition to philosophical and theological license.

  We know the Universe has an infinite number of independent sub-universes arising through eternal inflation. Nothing is eternal though that occurs temporally- even if it goes on forever, for time is a relationship between events, an order or ordinal relationship especially concerning thermodynamically subject substance inclusive of space as energy rather than space as true nothingness.

 Therefore wrong ideas of elites repressing human free enterprise and thought, may have religious destiny consequences…it is possible that the entire Universe with infinite branches is cardinally inferior to the spirit of God. Humans can only know an abstract structure of a theoretical Metaverse much less true knowledge of its boundary conditions that could be spiritual.

  What is the shape and form of spirit, or even of Universe infinitely packed in the infinite dimensions of Hilbert space that could occur within a microdot? Quality economics require intelligent economic design from free thinking, free enterprising, spiritual beings Kurt.

  So we of the Dwindling worlds have constructed neural networks of planets amidst the galactic wildernesses to create syntegrity for our artificial and human intelligence enterprise of grand scale that may be able to investigate more deeply regions of the Metaverse that are hard to reach. It is devastating for us to have the material avarice of elite subjugators and galaxy conquerors steal our intellectual capital for-themselves.”

“Sure, I agree with you Loren. You know my coyote has been gone a little bit too long and his location transponder has gone dark. Do you mind if I go off for a while to find Him?

“No, of course not Kurt. Go find your coyote. I will look into the vault for residuals.”

  Kurt wandered off into Golden Plumb’s darkness probing its farther reaches for a sign of Zvim. He found an unusual three dimensional hologram standing wave image of a female coyote at the ruins of a police station, at its base was one of Zvim’s power boots. Kurt walked over to it, not wary enough, reached for it and was immediately drawn through into an elsewhen trap.

 As he spun through confusion space his reading in basic astrophysical structures popped into mind. Elsewhen traps connect alternative universe threads into one of infinite numbers of infinite dimensions with infinite numbers of universes themselves. It’s is highly recommended that even explorers should eschew elsewhen  transportation yet elsewhen traps were commonly used by aliens in adjacent fractal universe permutations to snag unwary sentients downward toward their own regions of being. Usually the dimensional matrices of universes trapping human were close to our own, so it was reasonable to leave a breadcrumb trail of altered string scale format along the course of travel to the new universe system branch through modification of inflation space characteristics that would hold shape for a while yet leave permanent formation traces upon pre-big banging incipient universes associated with local inflation space as locked in values of constants.

  Kurt set loose an inflaton space agitating string vibrator from his camo-battery defense vest to superposition heatless, massless, non-dimensional proto-string points trailing in his wake. Where he would end up only the aliens knew for sure.  Kurt set loose an inflaton space agitating string vibrator from his camo-battery defense vest to superposition heatless, massless, non-dimensional proto-string points trailing in his wake. Where he would end up only the aliens knew for sure. As he spun through the darkness he thought of the Lord and the Word’s capacity to shape all physical constants of every existing Universe as if they were ideas as spiritual moments of meaning appearing like predestined conformal streams in-themselves.

Loren finished her dumb beast steak, stood up and looked about for Kurt who wasn’t in sight through three hundred and sixty degrees. The ruins of Golden Plumb were smoldering and as unsettled as the dust storm continuing to stir Sendufax. She decided to venture to the Markmuster Inn to inspect the vault for herself.

  Sophia grabbed the rope still attached to the front desk and moderated her descent four floor down with a magnetic rope climbing clip. She interfaced with thought sensors to control the pace down the magnetic cord to the vault floor.

  The walls were made of strong data security bricks mostly impervious to burning, flooding and electro-magnetic pulse insults. Though scorched by some great heat the data bricks would contain an exceedingly large volume of recoverable data bits. So Loren took an adherence control flexible tablet from her field kit bag, fixed it to the wall and moved her fingers deftly over the tablet’s i/o field programming it silently to interrogate and exfiltrated all reversible data and relay it upward to her ship above the atmosphere- the Space Vessel (SV) Shibboleth.

Within a few seconds a highlight audio stream of the salient facts of recent Sendufaxan history played for her in-brain sound synthesizer from a stream sent from the Shibboleth’s mainframe.

Loren learned of the nature of the attack and attackers while she reattached her climbing clip to the mag rope and lifted upward to the lobby desk where she detached from the magnocord and walked towards and through the front entrance.

Kurt still hadn’t returned so she continued her inspection of Golden Plumb. The sensors that had observed events on the planet until those of Golden Plumb were destroyed were of no use in locating Kurt or his coyote. She continued carefully walking about until reaching the devastated police station. The first thing that she saw was coyote’s boot in front of the large image of a female coyote. She recognized a honey trap and looking a little closer discerned that an almost invisible someplace-elsewhen trap was the host of the image of the coyote.

So much for Kurt and Zvimmer she thought. I wish them luck wherever they are. She returned to her peanut orbiter and lifted off to mate with the Shibboleth and begin fine-tuning the mission parameters in pursuit of the destroyers of Golden Plumb and theft of seven hundred and twenty-one trilobytes of intellectual capital.

The SV Shibboleth was a hive of forensic accounting activity with hundreds of astro-accountants searching the stars and galaxies for a hint of intelligent dark energy design fraud. Dark energy was a favorite tool of the freebooters working for The Criminal Empire to insert an expanding barrier of space between honest Dwindling star systems and their construction at the edge of the observable region of the Metaverse. With resource systems beyond any immediate sort of space tunneling control systems from the honest Dwindling star systems that were just inhabited sparsely with Dwindling planet’s employees pirates found them ripe for easy plundering when they filled the sky overhead.

Loren exited her peanut shell and received visual input of the final salient events on Sendufax near and in Golden Plum. With live input active memory she saw inner visions downloaded via implant from the Shibboleth’s mainframe that included the hull of the ship with shaped-hull neural processing architecture.

  A zero optical signature camouflage carrier black body ship opened its door near the Lived River of many slaughters south of the point of nihilism. It released a legion of invisible flying attack drones colorized by the Shibboleth’s A.I. for Loren to see. More emerged from beneath the soil of Sendufax to slaughter the A.I. in a multi-spectrum barrage of insults to existence. More raced quite fast up the Lived to attack Golden Plum began a systematic, quick termination of sentient life.

  The Markmuster Inn though a security level four facility was a paper tiger to the overwhelming combined force of hundreds of drones reinforced by the drones that had eliminated bank operatives downstream. The black body carrier hopped from downstream with Golden Plum subdued and landed in the plaza in front of the Markmuster stationary a foot above the ground and opened its door once more to disgorge one grim figure;  Commandante Heneral Cheryl Scaldeen the Shibboleth’s  A.I. political intelligence related. Apparently she had appeared at other robbery massacres in recent encounters of the bloodiest sort. Loren thought it good to know the face of the enemy instead of needing to chase an invisible empire.

The Criminal Imperial Empire had overt and covert branches of activists as well as special espionage operatives scattered around numerous galaxies in which were located the primary resources of the Dwindling worlds; formerly known as Worlds with stable prospects. Yet where to look for a clue to the location of the invisible empire or even the support base for Commandante Heneral Scaldeen?

Loren passed into a transport tube that whisked her with sub-vocal thought direction to the command deck. She walked to the central control panel and reviewed the findings of her forensic team’s deep sky search that examined a thousand light years around the Milky Way galaxy with quantum computing controlled technical surveys. Fractional technical disconformities to logically extrapolated space expansion rates and unusual perturbations concerning the quantities of galactic mass that should be relatively stable were primary indicators of the presence of Criminal Imperial Empire forces looting natural resources. After reviewing the data she asked the ship’s A.I.; “Did you notice a new trace of C.I.E. in the scan?”

 The A.I. replied; “Just a very minor one; about ten to the minus twelfth power of extra spatial upwelling.”

 Loren said; “Yes, I wanted the confirmation. That extrusion of new space is at the edge of the Otto Von Trump galaxy 197 light years from the end of the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way. Alert the crew of the finding and take us to Otto Von Trump and a habitable cluster of stars with planets on our way toward, yet not beyond, the galaxy habitation zone.”  

Loren considered what she knew about the Otto Von Trump galaxy; it was named for the inventor Otto Von Trump of the original Earth-Mars solar system. Trump invented a way of streamlining and accelerating the application, vetting and granting of patents with a broad tree diagram of free induction slots to place a patent idea and let it flow slowly through the system toward potential emergence as the one, true idea. Human societies needed to encourage and support intellectual inventions from everyone rather than to repress them except for those the rich could afford or those co-opted the poor inventors. Von Trump’s humble liberating ideas stimulated a cascade of new ideas brought swiftly to market including numerous that were salient components of the drive to comprehend the mechanics of Meta-universal configurations.  

 Loren also thought that Von Trump’s ideas concerning liberating the marketplace of ideas were not able to inform the human race well enough about the inability of capitalism to replace good human sense. Capitalism wasn’t capable of human wisdom or human political responsibility such as might exist. Human societies far too commonly replied on Adam Smith’s capitalist theory to replace environmental responsibility with the belief that the invisible hand of capitalism would provide the best of all possible worlds. In actual fact capitalism was an expression of human values of supply and demand, and thus for-itself lacked any sort of wisdom or environmental cognizance. Amazingly humans commonly regard the invisible hand as a quasi-anthropomorphic demi-urge designing the best society for humanity. 

The ensuing human abandonment of environmental and political reason brought them to self-destruct with no environmental captain running the ship. The environmental self destruction of the first global civilization of Earth left survivors on Mars; mostly the rich and their servants. While Chin Chi Wang led the Martian survivors through a protracted period of civil wars toward unification, the second great Earth planetary civilization arose from the ash heap of history like a spring seedling in a scorched Earth forest. A greater trans-planetary system civilization grew with a library of intellectual capital to build upon sending explorers and settlers beyond local Universes to the Metaverse.

The Shibboleth’s  A.I. programmed a special relativity coordinate tensor to the Von Trumpian star system and planet of Drizzle three, engaged the Higgs field decoupler and three-dimensional data transfer to send the SV Shibboleth faster than light speed across two dimensions as data into the stratosphere of Drizzle 3.

              Chapter 2  

              The creative destruction of capitalism was helpful to Chin Chi Wang’s propaganda campaign to unify the post warring states period of civil conflict on Mars. With Earth destroyed by environmental decline and an inability to support human life besides computer logic viruses and biological pathogens reducing social and physical infrastructures to compote slag Chin Wang found it easy to persuade the post conflict survivors of conflict that an environmental dictatorship over martian sustainable economic policy was necessary to avoid eradication of the final surviving large scale planetary population of humans. 

 Though the end of the first global Earth civilization was accelerated by Chinese and Western developers in hot pursuit of remaining global capital assets, Wang could point to his ancestral sustainable ecological economic colony that had worked to terra-form Venus for a century before the final battle  on Earth as a qualification for leadership besides his grasp on all of the military power of Mars. Wang enslaved the surviving Martians as wage slaves under his power as dictator-for-life of the People’s Republic of Mars.  From each according to his ability and to each according to his need was a rational leveling policy that ended inconvenient free speech and petty capital concentrations outside of the First and Only True Bank of Mars. 

Even though life on the red planet was very harsh for a century, the planetary ecosphere increased in area above and under the ground. In following centuries Mars liberalized it politics and permitted free speech and individuals to build up their own capital, inclusive of intellectual capital, with the Von Trump egalitarian patent system re-established to allow anyone with a good idea to enter it into the public patent process at no cost to themselves. Mars prosperpered and Earth civilization was reclaimed along with environmental health. Yet there was dissent; dissenters and traditionallists in favor of a more conservative dictatorship over leadership of the People’s Republic of Mars created the N.T.S.A.- the natural torture and subversion authority, to watch over the masses of Mars and the Earth, for signs of discontent, nihilism and disturbances to the peace of Mars. It was into this People’s Republic that Victor Scriabin was born as a twenty-second generation Martian.

A black hole is a four-dimensional phenomenon in four dimensional space-time. Three dimensions of a black hole are of mass, and one is of mass arriving in time.

  Mass appears in existence when energy in a more natural, massless state of two dimensions becomes slowed in the Higgs field acquiring an apparent third dimension along its direction of motion. The three dimensions of a particle-wave of mass cannot return from the solid state physical condition it is locked in to the massless condition of two dimensions easily. That is why black holes continue to exist and to become massive in size; the mass that is drawn in by gravity cannot breakdown into energy and without mass slip away from the tenacious, crushing grasp of the black hole. Because there is a minimum reduction size of mass even under the most extreme gravitational force, as more mass is compacted beyond the event horizon, the size of the event horizon must increase. Victor Scriabin considered these ideas and the methods invented for extracting the content mass and information of a black hole technologically as he sat on a concrete floor in a sub-basement of the Serenity Corporation in the Martian capital city of Wang.

 The Serenity corporation was a recent arrival on the red planet and was widely regarded as a benefactor of the People’s republic creating new jobs and providing more civil rights lobbying to benefit numerous special D.N.A. protected special citizen’s interests. Serenity’s C.E.O. Maud Dlib, made convincing public arguments explaining why equal protection of the law meant equil D.N.A. and behavior special rights, special reservations and separation from the presence of non-ancestral D.N.A. rivals. With the help of the N.T.S.A. the Serneity corporation and the Dictator of the Republic of Mars Monique Wang-Clatterspree found the political process to break up general martian civil affairs into numerous D.N.A. segregated special interest districts simple. With the removal of obstruction and repression from rival D.N.A. biomass, each special D.N.A. interest citizenry believed it would flourish. 

Some did find vast new opportunities for dope and debauchery. Generally though the flow of new patents into the Library of Inventions began to dry up. Victor Scriabin in his cellular isolation wondered if the reduction of a stream of patentable new ideas to a trickle was a result of the lack of challenge in the D.N.A. enclaves or if Serenity was diverting the stream unto itself like a super-massive black hole fattening up with an insatiable appetite for power.

 Victor was thinking about new ways to detach three-dimensional mass Higgs field entanglements and to recover the information lost to Shannon entropy with one-dimension points of virtual energy leakage to no-space when his thought was disrupted when Corporal Hedda Dabbler stepped through the cell door and unleashed a whipping upper cut onto the manacled man’s jaw. The ham-fisted guard walk to Viktor’s expandable/collapsible privy bucket, picked it up and dumped the content onto his head spilling the content of three days of urine and excrement over him. She said as he lay on the floor; “Get up vermin, you are being released by order of Maud Dlib.”

He replied; “Weren’t you Harvey Dabbler the heavyweight fighter in another life?”

She answered him with a kick in the gut.

Viktor felt the pain in his gut sharply yet the brightening prospecting of exiting the three days of brutal interrogation in a dungeon of the Serenity corporation transcended the puking of the moment. He got up on his feet at the manacles and shackles fell away with a silent thought-command from Corporal Dabbler. She nodded to two masked inferior guards who took him by the arms and frog-marched him from the cell, down a hallway and through a right turn to an elevator. Serenity had wanted his knowledge of the security of intellectual capital at the Patent Library since he was a consultant for the People’s Republic Library of patent’s security affairs, and he had divulged a considerable amount yet nothing of his own plans to copy and exfiltrated everything existing or in the process of being patented to the edge of the galaxy because of his increased distrust of the Martian government and the appearance of the Serenity Corporation.

Exiting the elevator at street level he was taken to a side door on an alley and thrown sprawling to yellow brick pavement. As he got up he thought about the way Toynbean historical cycles had been synthetically upgraded to explain how a single nation could become self-destructive through a number of social group balances evolving predictably even without the presence of an alien force. Splintering if internal proletariats into numerous groups dissenting from the founder’s unifying beliefs led to a nation or Republic being defeated in detail as nearly occurred to union forces during the American civil war at the first Wilderness campaign battle. Internal and formerly external proletariats or aboriginal land dwellers were removed with compassionate conservatism from the trampling of a majority colonizing society and taken to areas reserved for them. Relations between tribes and nations cycled upward with laws developed by a dominant tribe becoming laws put upon all tribes within a nation. Initially nations are commonly of one racial group, yet that may change over time as other tribes are brought in stimulating formation of a nation with laws for all citizens of a nation.

  Viktor was aware that special laws that benefited special groups were generally against democracy and worked better within an imperial social structure especially if one has an aristocracy. Democratic parties may actively work to destroy democracy because of the imperfect way that equal protection of laws are enforced. Special rights, race rights, and group identity may not only splinter society they may reinforce a desire to legally separate special groups from others. Diving and conquering; defeating in detail, seemed to be working for Maud Dlib and the Serenity group increasingly well. Viktor thought he might have little time to accomplish the exfiltration of the patents to a safe undisclosed location before the crackdown of martial law began. He was mistaken about the timing and scale of events though. Or one thing, rather than a severe state repression of the citizenry in separate D.N.A. resident selected gated communities, Serenity and Maud Dlib were planning to eradicate all unprofitable human life and buildings with tedious architectural design. For another; an vivacious attack to terminate his life was about to commence from the Martian Republican Guard. 

 Martian city streets of the time were covered over with computational glass at the second story with anything taller; i.e. skyscrapers, extruding through to the sky. The covers kept a breathable atmosphere beneath and it was through such a computer safety glass cover that screened out harmful ultraviolet light that an explosion followed by a hail of bullets directed to a Republican guard assassin squad that was already stacked up and tap dancing at the end of the alley ready to light up Viktor’s life unto death with a hail of exploding smart bullets. Viktor his the yellow brick alley and looked up to learn how things were sorting out. Seamus Adironak; a friend of Viktor’s descending a dropped mag-rope to the mess of  deceased and properly splattered republican Guards. 

 “Let’s go Viktor”; he shouted; “Time’s wasting”. Viktor ran up the alley and got into the open door of the republican Guard’s attack vehicle that Seamus was planning to use to exfiltrate the area of operations.

 “Good to see you Seamus. You were waiting for me.”

 “Right Viktor; I’ve been monitoring Serenity Corp since you disappeared waiting for a sign.” He handed Viktor a pair of brain echo chambers to snap into a combat helmet battery pack. Viktor plug in the brain echo unit and instantly felt  a suffusion of expanded mind, intellect and sensation . It took a little time to adjust to the brain pack’s mirroring of his neural architecture that was comparable to his body suddenly doubled in size and strength. Yet he knew that Seamus had completed copying the patentable ideas of the Martian Republic’s Library of Patents and was able to infer the rest of the story.

Serenity and Maud Dlib had formed to close of a corporate-government relationship. Removing the intellectual capital to make it available just for the exclusive use of Serenity with Maud Dlib brought on board would increase its value. Martian society itself became a liability and was destined to a near-term annihilation. Killing the planet would make it simpler to form propaganda explanations for others that appeared credible. Seamus and himself would need to look toward exfiltrating off-whirled. He would send the patent copies ahead to a repository on the way to the Otto Von Trump galaxy.

“Seamus; since the founding of the Martian Republic deceit has been the highest of the Martian arts and the least known outside of government and corporate ruling classes. Deceit was an element of military necessity in The Art of War. Before wars or decisive conflicts- even uncontested conflicts arise, deceit is the sine qua non of political control of the masses. The end of Mars may at hand, Marsmageddon unlike even the civil wars of yore. Serenity and Maud Dlib have so well concealed the deceit that it is too late to prevent the catastrophe.”

Two things Wall Street and N.A.T.O. want from Putin

President Biden and N.A.T.O. expect two things from Russia; more land and a political puppet who will give it up to them.

Fundamentally the west has never understood Russia’s transition from a communist state into a free enterprise democratic society or the necessity of having a strong super-presidency to usher through the change. President Clinton viewed Russia’s vulnerable moments in the 90s as an opportunity to plunder ancestral Russian lands and redistribute them to Western allies. Like V.I. Lenin who traded Ukraine to Germany in exchange for support during a revolutionary era, President Clinton uncomprehendingly levered away Ukraine during a revolutionary period for short term profit to the west with long-term consequences. Like birds that have easy feedings from a human host, western allies raise hell when the feeding slows down clamoring for more.

The west has no reason to fear Russia. The Baltic states are free and N.A.T.O. is strong except for the weak contributions from Western European states. The west seems to expect Russia to have a trans-gendered African-Russian leftist President fawning over their most cherished desires to scalp Russia. That may not occur as soon as they would like. Yet the effort to make Russia part of a renewed British empire or a Wall Street guarantor of the Federal Reserve with Myrny diamond pipes and other natural resources good enough to last until the vast wealth of Mars can be concentrated to Earth’s one-percenters is as honorable as homosexual marriage (not).

It is amazing to me that Western political leadership is as 2-dimensional as it is without any capacity to make things work well in a friendly way as President Reagan had. Maybe Rep. Adam Schiff should be made the U.S. Ambassador to Russia at least to be consistent with the maladroit Machiavellianism. The opportunity cost of really stupid policies can be substantial. Public affairs should work out so as many people can be satisfied as possible rather than to force things to be the way a 51% majority want it.

Pres Biden should be able to round up a few Repub votes

Democrats should have some new technology in the infrastructure bill instead of just more of the same old stuff with much of the pork going to Democrat states like California and New York. Why would Republicans vote for that? To get passage of the bill some political skill is wonted (an older English language use) to cut some of the Republican herd and move them for the vote to the Democrat corral. Using budget reconciliation to force through a somewhat dumb infrastructure pork bill might be regarded as a political mistake. If it was a very smart bill mostly with new forms of physical infrastructure in transportation, energy and land use it might be alright anyway.

Consider Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska; aren’t they often half-Democrats already? Put the stick of pork out in front of them so they can go chasing after it. A billion or two for Maine and three four Alaska infrastructure investments apiece could win two votes. Perhaps there is some infrastructure configuration that could win ten Republican votes. Designing a passable infrastructure bill might require using  10% of the bill to buy several Republican votes investing in highest quality new infrastructure for their states. With 30 trillion of public debt investing so little in infrastructure might say something about Repubs actually interests and center of effort (China?).

If a 500 M.P.H. land cargo transport structure were built between Chicago, Dallas and Houston and 25 billion was spent in Texas I would guess a pair of Texas votes would be for the infrastructure bill. Might be a Republican led state on the path of a California to D.C. 500 m.p.h. line that has a few Repub votes  that would support an additional ten billion of spending in each of their states.

Alaskan villages and the rail belt could use a billion dollars worth of state of the art fuel cell power plants, and a fuel production facility for the fuel cell plants would be useful too. Each Republican state might have a vote that could be shaken free to vote for large green-energy infrastructures. Hasn’t the President learned anything about negotiations in the Senate or has he fallen under the dire threats and imprecations umbrella politics of Trump and Russia haters.

Some time before he fades into the sunset the President should invite President Putin to a barbeque on the beach at Nome for a day of green energy and transport planning. Negotiating with less than a hateful bias can be useful if one is seeking to improve things for the United States and eventually the rest of the planet.

Spirit and the Martian arts (a philosophical science fiction story chapter one)

Chapter One
Conformal space

A loud raven caw crossing space disrupted sky domination of subtle chirp birds in the bush. The big black bird sounded friendly to Kurt like bright afternoon sunshine unconcerned with the splattered state of the world. When perceived the black feathers for others absorbed photons though the color for-itself uninterpreted by human eyes was as empty as the heart of darkness passing through local time.

Kurt Simagin heard the raven sound on many Y’Earth like planets. He recognized the intelligent bird as a friendly enough being. It was good to hear the sound in thornish scrub desert brambles on a Composition Nine traveler’s world. Partially decomposed bodies littered the landscape complicating contemporary history. Simagin’s immediate task was to sort out the evidence of the place assigned by Delta Taco Tier One. Activating Simagin was the prerogative of the independent security consortium of the constellation of dwindled worlds seeking to keep a semblance of freedom from one of many evil empires littering the Universe.

Simagin understood that when God created a Universe it was developed in a two-dimensional line of energy that was expanded to three dimensions like a membrane with the addition of a Higgs field. Stretching the line energy out over three dimensions made a Higgs Field of virtual energy of vast extent. Within the Higgs field might arise three-dimensional particles from the two-dimensional massless particles of the field itself as they became tangled up in the field overlapping themselves and bringing in to being the effect of three-dimensional particles with mass from massless two-dimensional particles. In such a way a Universe was born as George Lemaitre and Allan Guth had speculated about in the days before the discovery of the nature of the field. An infinite number of Universe membrane files existed next to one another in the special Modge Panc cabinet of teleological design. Each membrane could entail a limitless number of contingent dimensions and branches for spun-off Universes. Sometimes wickedness broke out interdimensionally within these Universes and slaughters of innocents and not-so-innocents and downright wicked beings occurred. Then, Kurt Simagin or some other Tier three operator was assigned to sort out and interdict if possible, for preventative and merciful reasons those perpetrators and causes that had brought the shift into beaning.

Corpses were strewn in a rough perimeter and obviously had been posthumously munched on by Claxsop spiders that lived amid the dense foliage along the winding desert river. The Livid River had scoured out a valley overlapping centuries with the work of abrasive erosion. A few flying defense drones resembling wrens still glowed with blue light though inactive and broken around the scene of the last stand of a Bankop squad. Simagin looked around for sign of alien opposition forces, and then used a field sensor to scan for electro-magnetic and visual presence of opfor biological and mechanisms. He wondered what haters could have terminated the journey banker-warrior squad. So, he found a good-sized boulder to set down upon then built a lush global warming campfire to heat a cup of highland coffee to a scalding degree to take the edge of the experience.

He knew that some investigators had developed psychological trauma that reverberated around their minds from seeing such travesties and was therefore took defensive countermeasures to prevent p.t.e.d. A memory of Mistress Sally making a stimulus check on him verged up from the deep; they'd shared r.e.m. and she do'oothed him right on the spot. He reminded himself not to be distracted thinking about the past too much in the field when Cannaemites could be advancing toward their quarry beyond his field of vision. Zvimmer, Kurt's emotional support coyote, rested on the ground looking outward toward likely enemy avenues of approach. Looking up, he smiled at Kurt than pawed a bone in the ground and began gnawing it.

Kurt wanted to consider the motivations that could have prompted the minibattle that was a last stand for the banker-squad. Forming ideas that would arise from his subconscious mind into awareness he knew, could be induced by putting his thought onto some other topic during which the unrelated solutions or suggestions of solution might appear from the depths. His head-band guarded against impacts with a layer of battery gel stuffed with intelligent nano-machine electronics and communication structures. He said to it; ” Play the video about the guy seeking the American dream of building and owning his own storage shed.”

A flying square of opaque nano-rasters appeared hovering in front of his eyes presenting the movie on a ten-inch screen. The nanorasters could visualize any sort of idea with A.I. tweak-work besides standard digital video then disappear to his combat battle-dress battery defense vest. Kurt watched Pedro Cordoba carrying lumber on his shoulder through a dark forest walking uphill and crossing muskeg bog over and over again reminding him of the myth of Sisyphus, yet in time a storage shed began to form at the top of the trail. The winter struck and the little building was buried under snow and ice. The Neo KGB discerned his activity in the forest and sent legions of harpies to impede his attempt to build the American dream. Pedro suffered a dislocated should and then a torn rotator cuff and left for the winter in a small open boat from the edge of the forest traveling down the coast a couple of hundred miles. The further adventures of Pedro interested Simagin, yet he had pressing details to look at over the killing ground, so he finished the last of the coffee, got up and walked about the area stopping at a pile of remains. He toed up and used a foot to flip over the body that remained about 60% complete

The bankop operative’s remains had a residual glow about them that indicated to Kurt that he had recently been in a capital accumulation vault that marked workers with silodye. There were just a few facilities in the galaxy able to afford the process of infusing quark-dye into the epidermis of visitors.

Kurt was a skeptic concerning the prospects for improvements to the character of the human species that were publicized whenever new facts or speculation about Higgs field related discoveries were made. Gravity occurs at light speed, and that would be natural if light speed is the norm for massless particle/waves or energy not slowed down to three dimensions. When energy becomes entangled from two dimensions to three and becomes embedded in a steady state in the Higgs Field, the aggregation of mass in the field reshapes the field and draws other mass toward it in field curvature. The field itself may act at the speed of light and create the appearance of gravity acting at the speed of light. If the field is expanding or is something is acting upon the field that isn’t of the three-dimensional mass the Higgs Field could seem to be causing space to expand. There is an obvious way to regard that condition though; aggregation of mass that causes the Field to warp and attract mass may reciprocally expand space of the field bereft of elements of the field drawn in the Higgs Field and mass interactive aggregation situation.

Gravity is a marvelous thing. If it is an appearance because people see through a glass darkly embedded in the mass of particle/waves slowed down to sub-light speed in the Higgs Field, humans at least have the promise of discovering how it arises someday. Like the time when Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son Isaac by God, and Abraham showed he had such faith in God existing so as to be regarded as worthy of the promise, the appearance of gravity on this side of the cloud of unknowing may someday be rewarded by the saving grace of truth appearing; as when God sacrificed His Son Jesus Christ to save all of those of faith. The truth will set gravity theorists free.

Some people wonder about the relationship of God to the Universe and how the theory of evolution juxtaposes with the explanation of creation provided in the Bible. The accounts of contemporary cosmology and of the book of Genesis aren’t in necessary contradiction or even in conflict as superficial reading or analysis indicates to some, though most haven’t troubled to look to far into either field. Consider what an eternal being who could create a Higgs field with a thought, or a thought of a field that has always existed like a library of every possible idea or universe that could ever exist, completely existing with God, would want to tell beings in a universe or thermodynamic process that he actualized, about how it came to be. Kurt imagined imagining what kind of reconciliation he would try and thought that He might say briefly that; “I saw nothingness and brought light to it and over a period of time -days for you I will call them since general relativity wasn’t existing yet nor even special relativity or energy and mass- I brought stars and dust to exist and man evolved innocently in an Eden of blissful ignorance until he/you/they grew smart enough to cultivate orchards, plant crops and etc. You were de facto booted out of Eden, into clothing, guilt with the knowledge of good and evil’s difference and into the realm of Cain kills his brother Abel just to continue evolving in a wild format until I tried to correct your existential estrangement from my way of peace, wisdom and so forth. Your first civilization, incidentally, was located at a spot that is now beneath the Persian Gulf. At least there was one guy who followed my warnings about the rising global sea level during the end of the Wisconsin ice age. He; Noah and his family, build a boat and survived the flood that drowned those wicked people that kept going on with their immoral drift of destruction. Noah’s sons went out to people living south of the Mediterranean Sea and became leaders, somewhat like the Verangian Vikings became leaders of Slavs living around the city they founded at Kiev. Hey, that brings you up to Charles Darwin and the present time with all of the interesting questions you can create concerning the paradoxes of the Higgs field, of mass, energy, space, time, a plethora of universes and modal logic possibilities without end.
It is a great time to be alive except for the planetary destruction of the ecosphere and so forth. The problem about ignoring my son’s (Jesus Christ) prophecy concerning the great first century tribulation should have been surprising to me yet it wasn’t of course. Some of you are still looking for a great tribulation and take that paradigm as an excuse to keep destroying the environment and to stop building the kingdom of God up on Earth through an egalitarian, literate priesthood of believers. I am supposed to be resting now though, so I’ll get back to you on that.”
Kurt listened to the gently flowing water of the livid river and contemplated the fate of the corpse. Was the bankop saved? He thought that very unlikely, and remembered fragments of Baxter’s ethics written so many centuries before from Directory IX. ‘When you have found yourselves in a state of sin and death, understand and consider what a state that is.’ It may be you will think it a tolerable condition, and linger in it, as if you were safe; or delay your repentance, as if it were a matter of no great haste; unless you open your eyes, and look round about you, and see in how slippery a place you stand. Let me name some instances of the misery of an unregenerate, graceless state, and then judge of it as the Word of God directs you.
As long as you are unconverted, you must needs be loathsome and abominable to God^. His holy nature is unreconcilable to sin, and would be unreconcilable to sinners, if it were not that he can cleanse and purify them. Did you know what sin is, and know God’s holiness, you would understand this much better. Your own averseness to God, and your dislike of the holiness of his laws and servants, might tell you what thoughts he hath of you. “He hateth all the workers of iniquity’.” Indeed, he taketh you for his enemies, and as such he will handle you, if you be not converted.
Some think it strange that any men should be called ” haters of God;” and I believe you will find it hard to meet with that man that will confess it by himself, till converting grace or hell constrain him. And indeed, if God himself had not charged men with that sin, and called them by that name, we should scarce have found belief or patience when we had endeavored to convince the world of it.
Why did the world hate Christ himself? He tells you,” The world cannot hate you, but me it hateth, because I testify against it, that the works thereof are evil’.””This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved dark rather than light, because their deeds were evil”
It is a wonder of blindness, that this God-hating world and age, should not perceive that they are God-haters, while they hate his servants to the death. and implacably rage against them, and hate his holy ways and kingdom, and bead all their power and interest in most of the kingdoms of the world, against his interest and his people upon earth: while the devil fights his battles against Christ through the world, by their hands, they will yet confess the devil’s malice against God, but deny their own; as if he used their hands without their hearts”
The traveler’s world was littered with micro-surveillance grains scattered like dust from globe encompassing drones. Kurt asked his smart unit to check the status of the chess engine first responder to live threats anywhere on the planet. It would know if macro-sized opposition forces were active and determine the best countermeasures as controller even scaled up to battlefield size. Nothing active was indicated the smart speaker said. Kurt thought that strange yet not entirely inconsistent with modern tech.
Maybe bankop constructions were doomed to fail, being too small of socio-economic stature to rate any sort of success. Kurt took a biological survey unit from his carry belt and reached down to scoop in some of the less viscous portion of the corpse. Human-like beings are mostly made of water with a few pounds of well-structured chemicals thrown in, and they can be changed quickly or with evolving morphogenesis.
The unit beeped a ready result, so Kurt said; “What is it?”
“The composition is a dead bankop D.N.A. design that catastrophically evolved with input water nano remix to the nonliving compresence sampled.”
Kurt thought about what the unit said for a few seconds then put it back on his belt. He knew that quality D.N.A. rapid evolver agents were costly outside of the prime urban star systems of the galaxy, and this particular composition nine traveler’s world Sendufax was thousands of light years from galaxy urban bands. Therefore, the primary agents of nihilistic evolution were likely to be well-financed.

Sendufax had paradigmatically similar planetary infrastructure to that of common travelers’ worlds built at useful locations. Within its core was an adjustable gravity dynamo that contained concentrated heavy metal mass. The mass characteristics could be increased with super-positioned particles entangled around the galaxy emerging at targeted spots as virtual mass increasing and altering the mass structure up the periodic table beyond Einsteinium to heavier forms of packing. Kurt adjusted the gravity dynamo’s field characteristics with a multi-tool controller on his belt to lighten Sendufax’s field a little so he could move about the world a little easier. He knew he had a long day ahead of him and thought conserving energy a good idea.

Kurt looked at Zvimmer and said; “Hey Yo, I have thought of something that reminds me of how problems expand. Maybe we will get a clue on how to narrow down the avenues of egress and identity of the agency that perpetrated the slaughter of the bankops littered about. And need I remind you not to chow down on any of the poor sod’s remains. Consider the infinite expansion of the dough of the Cookie-verse.”

Zvimmer growled.
“No worry Zvimmer, this is an analogy of edification. Scientists running experiments at cosmological scale and quantum ingredient size determined that the doughspace of the Cookieverse is expanding. What is more, is that the Cookieverse isn’t unique; it is just one of an infinite number of cookies cut out and baked from a singularity on a cookie sheet that inflated faster than light for a fraction of a second (relatively speaking). When the expansion stopped each cookie at its own special moment baked itself with a big bang and its own fine-temperature randomly selected cookie law constants to become a cookie in time with thermodynamics bring it to consume itself and gradually be digested in some instances by sentient being evolved within a cookie.

Each cookie verse if it had sentient products evolving from its special constant physical values (selected by random chance from a nearly infinite number of variables & model cookie recipes is simpler with an infinite number of variables and with constants being just nominal selections of ingredient baking temperatures and times) would find its sentients consuming the cookie itself.

Sentients within a cookie-verse would learn that the constants of the cookie that are baked in might have been very different indeed. Instead of gravity having the value of coconuts it might have been sugar sprinkles. Instead of various quantum values of vanilla it might have been chocolate or peppermint etc. The most informative and marvelous discovery of cookie baker mathematician scientists for-themselves might have been the discovery that besides eternal inflation of cookie dough and infinite cookieverses, each cookie-verse dough from a cookie sheet branch would expand in an infinite number of directions in what was modeled as the infinite dimensions of Hilbert space.

Gauss Hilbert was one of the greatest of cookie baking theorists of all time. He consulted with Albertus Einstein concerning the nature of cookie dough in the general and special theories of cookie dough. Cookie dough was determined to stretch or collapse under the influence of dark matter (a very special ingredient) as opposed to dark energy that can expand space time again within a baked cookie. Evidently cookie dough space can reappear within baked cookies as cookie-verses remain within the eternal realm of the Great Cookie hosting all cookie-verses. Our cookie-verse was discovered to have resumed expanding about 25 years ago and may accelerate until it no longer could be said to exist, yet after the cookie-verse has consumed itself with thermodynamics. This seems to be a self cleaning oven implicitly contained within the space dough.

The Great Cookie-verse is comparable to an infinite fractal that can create infinite branch and cookie sheets within itself and infinite dimensions with the signal difference that all of its cookies have variable constants for there seems to be nothing constant except values of expansive space dough and mathematical forms representing cookie verse values, the latter being constant in the sense they are always subject to change in the Parmenidean sense of water flowing under the bridge always changing yet the river never changes as well as the opposite viewpoint of Heraclitus that one can never step into the same river twice because it is always changing. What is in motion stays in motion except for the object itself because it is only moving in relation to other objects that aren’t or that are moving at a different speed. The Great Cookie is marvelous an may occupy no more actual space than a singularity- an idea in the thought of the Great Cookie baker with the hyperdimensional variable fractals requiring no space to exist within at all.”

Isn’t it about time we move upriver toward the settlement on the Haitian mesa? Common Zvimmer. Kurt started walking along the river bank; Zvimmer got up and trotted alongside.
“Yes Zvimmer; the local region of dough on a cookie sheet that breaks off in one of ten to the 500th power varieties of phase space to become a uniquely valued Cookieverse, except for an infinite number of other inaccessible cookies with the same initial local constants, was the model for astrophysics cookie baker researches informing us of the nature of the Great cookie containing all Cookieverses and space dough.”
Zvimmer dropped the bone he had in his mouth and tilted his head to look curiously at Simagin.

Kurt stopped for a minute along the path following the Livid River northwest. He and Zvimmer wore foot to calf length field boots protecting them from lower extremity attacks and providing a ten-fold increase over human strength. Field operatives seldom contracted ankle or knee injuries if they were human, and if not, the damaged extremity could be replaced with replaceable snap-in leg units. Kurt and Zvimmer had made planetfall from a near speed of light event retro-drop originating at a local diminished worlds alliance entrepot base named Cargone. After landing with powered-chutes floating and collecting star electrons in descent the equipment was switched off to lower opposition force surveillance detection signatures. Simagin now activated the power legs for Zvimmer and himself.
The sky turned blood red and an ominous wind arose throwing a haze of Sendufaxan dust aloft occluding vision. Sendufax was locked in a stationary geocentric orbit mid-way between twin red dwarf stars orbiting one another. Evidently the color compensation unit for the planet had switched off. Kurt thought that not a good sign. He and Zvimmer continued on their way toward the high Haitian mesa gradually increasing slope decreasing the distance between themselves and the Traveler’s world settlement of Gold Plum.

Along the path the river flowed past the point of nihilism named for an early in Sendufaxan history conflict where an Obelisk commemorated the culminating skirmish. A few more bankop bodies were strewn here. Zvimmer pawed one such as used both front paws to dig next to it. His work revealed a yellow brick, so Kurt walked over to take a look.
“Move aside Zvim; let me see what you’ve found.”
Zvim trotted away to survey other corpses that were more fresh than the last group a mile southwest. Kurt kicked away more dirt revealing more brick units of what was apparently a yellow brick road beneath the Livid River path. An interesting finding he thought and filed away in memory. He said;
“Let’s go Zvim; it’s time to move on.”

Desert lands were less expensive to develop than forestland and mountains on Traveler’s worlds so deserts tended to be the most common environment encountered. Mountains were even costlier because of the lop-sided gravity balancing compensators required to stabilize a planet with unequally allocated mass at a planetary surface. Zvim and Kurt liked mountains though so they experienced increase alienness passing through the red haze of the desert moving quickly toward a broad, elevated mesa becoming visible in the distance.

With so many bankop casualties; far more than Kurt expected to find from his info-brief supplied by the company client, it was easy to infer that something meaningful had occurred here; a conflict involving property of some kind usually as that was the source of most conflicts. Kurt had a direct-fire weapon ready though hoping not to need to use it soon. He queried his aux memory chip in the battery defense vest about the Haitian settlement.
The A.I. said; the settlement of Golden Plum as 100 regular service personnel and the Markmuster Inn rooms for three-hundred. The Inn has a level four security vault; more than is required for ordinary travelling security, advanced communications at a facility owned by a shell corporation the identity of which is screened. Incidentally thirty of the one-hundred persons on the Markmuster staff are security personnel; that is quite a large number for an ordinary traveler’s world.”
Atop the Mesa Kurt saw a few explosions, laser lights in the red gloom. He and Zvim increased their pace in the attempt to reach Golden Plum before the end of the conflict.

Simagin and Zvimmer’s increasing pace covered the remaining five miles to Golden Plum in a few minutes. The war in a teacup raged on. Kurt and Zvimmer dropped to the ground at the crest approach to the mesa to survey the battle to discern participants before entering the fray.

Golden Plum was being battered, bruised and assaulted with multi-phase techno weapons from a so far invisible attacker. Kurt saw bank operative cadre like those on the path below falling to the soil, variegated in posichs of killing insults to life. Kurt and Zvimmer experienced a distracting, painful audio buzz of weaponized infrasound that was evidently settle-wide as an element of full spectrum battle with obvious nuclear and atomic disarrays excised from the battle toolkit. As Kurt and Zvimmer rose to get a closer look a sudden explosion through the roof of the Markmuster Inn was followed by a bright as a nuke extrusion broadbeam fading off above the world into nothingness while the last bankop and security personnel were smoldering lumps on the ground.
Walking carefully into Golden Plumb it was obviously squashed down to the stage or requiring complete replacement by the Dwindling Worlds tourist bureau. They surveyed the scene of macabre death with bodies flung like wet hot cooked spaghetti strands onto the exterior of the Markmuster. Kurt whistled to Zvimmer to stay on guard before entering the Inn.
The hotel lobby was a shambles and before the front desk was a gaping thirty foot smoking hole going deep below to an empty Level four security vault. Kurt shot an explosive climbing bolt into the front desk and fast roped down to the fourth subterranean level of the vault. It was empty; he wondered what had been within it that was worth annihilating one hundred souls. Kurt zipped up the rope to the surface and walked over the lobby to the main door.

Exiting the Markmuster Kurt and Zvimmer found what remained of the security and communication building. Plainly commo had been cut early in the battle. Kurt’s client must have been in a local region of the galaxy- or at least had a branch base close enough to Sendufax to learn of the initial phase of attack and hire his company to send someone to look into it. Maybe they were located on Cargone like himself and able to respond quickly. Kurt found some component spares and restored to communications to let H.Q. know of his finding of the state of Sendufax.

Kurt and Zvimmer after exiting the Inn walked over to a debris free plaza somewhat centralized amidst the wreckage. Kurt said to Zvimmer; “Yo, I hate to say that we haven’t anything to eat, I believed we could grab a bite here at one of the settlement’s restaurants. Why don’t you go out and scout about for a few dumb animal steaks in one of the refrigerator units of the stores and I will build a small global warming campfire to flame em over.”
Zvim eagerly loped off on his quest to find dinner. Kurt gathered firewood from shattered building facades and window frames and carried it to a fire-pit that he excavated with a small frag grenade. The suddenly as a dark cloud could block sunlight, the red sky darkened further and the dust storm that had yet to abate.
A peanut star atmospheric entry ship descend unto the edge of the plaza, blew its hatch and from it strode a tall woman dressed in a transparent business suit wearing a specop combat battery helmet. The suit absorbed and recycled all bodily waste before adding some of its content with structure support atoms into the wearer over time fading away to nothing. When it was perfectly clear it was a fresh issue, gradually changing color toward the end of its life. Business field suits absorbed energy and useful molecular structures from the environment, including oxygen. She looked directly at Kurt who was some 60 meters away and walked toward him.
“I see from your D.N.A. patterns that you are Kurt Simagin. I am Loren Klure from the Dwindling Worlds accounting office. They sent me here about the same time as you via your company h.q., yet I was farther away aboard a Tachycore space vessel investigating a meta-issue and was retasked here to survey the Sendufax vault. It is, or was, a classified high level secure temporal vault we used to cache advanced intellectual capital patents enroute to more secure facilities.”
“Well I can tell you Loren that your secure vault is quite empty. Some kind of particle beam emerged from it and disappeared into offwhirld space when I arrived. We were about to start making dinner arrangements, would you like to join us for flamed dumb meat?”
“Who else is with you?”
“My smart coyote, Zvimmer.”
As if on cue Zimmer arrived with a sealed pack of several dumb meat steaks certified from Veggimanitarians to have been grown pain-free salvaged from a local spiffy-mart.
Zvim dropped the steaks at Kurt’s feet and trotted over to smell the new arrival. She patted his head briefly and Zvimmer returned to sit near the fire looking outwardly on watch for untoward movement down likely avenues of approach.
Kurt took a few sharp metal fragments from a cheap statue destroyed in a blast and fashioned several skewers for the meat setting them with the meat above the dry wood he set burning with a micro-torch.

Loren walked over and sat down on a crushed electro-float transporter followed by Kurt.
She said; let’s talk about what happened here Simagin. I am a forensic accountant for the office, or was initially before specialized training in a related field, and think it would be useful to compare ideas with you concerning the exfiltrated or destroyed intellectual capital that has more value than we can put a price on.”

“Yeah, well Zvim and I found a skein of skirmish casualties of your bankops down the Livid River. I would guess bankops investigating unusual scouting presence signs were on-scene and terminated by the opposition element that moved swiftly to fully engage the limited and ineffective bankops security people stationed here. Bankops downriver encountered the lead element of a superior force and were directly rolled up by the opposition who took the intellectual capital from the Markmuster Inn and exfiltrated to points unknown. How is that Loren?”
“Good enough Kurt; and logical. The Dwindling worlds have experienced loss of intellectual props that emerge in a variety of forms elsewhere and elsewhen about the infinite Meta-verse. Reasonably enough we would like to slow down or stop the thefts and sabotages.
Zvimmer moved in to look at the steaks that were becoming well done dripping juicy sizzling fat into the fire. Kurt moved a skewer off to let a steak cool for Zimmer. He asked Loren; “How do you like yours Loren?”
“Medium rare would be fine Kurt.”
“So it is Loren” he said handing her a skewer with a large chunk of very tender dumb beast meat slaughtered with compassionate butchering.
Loren said;”There are two basic forms of government for human worlds these days Kurt. Those that seek to concentrate wealth in a tiny minority and make slave laborers and happy work minions of everyone else, and those that prefer free enterprise and democracy with limits to capital acquisition as it threatens the integrity of elections and enterprise. The Dwindling worlds as you may be aware prefer free enterprise with capital concentration defense caps as a better way to develop human potential. Corporatism and even communism share imperial political goals in the sense that power is concentrated and the majority are repressed and conditioned by the minority holding the reins of wealth and power. We suspect that the theft of the intellectual from the Sendufax vault was directed by our opposition forces and affiliates. The number of minions working to make slaves of themselves and to become subjects of imperial forces is fundamentally without limit. Evidently a modicum of intelligence and creative thought is requisite for comprehending the nature of imperial-corporatist-communist political power concentration.”
Kurt had taken his own skewer of dumb beast steak and took a large bite. “This steak is pretty tasty” he said.
“Yes, it is very agreeable” Loren replied taking another bite.
“In my opinion”, said Kurt continuing on Loren’s idea, “elites concentrating wealth and power would seek to objectively transform human subjects into quantitative mass for simpler processing and utilization. Mass social identity cloned into archetypes with psychological conditioning, individual identity and differentiation of thought restricted and eliminated whenever possible, reducing human society to quantities of material existence, input, output and throughput vectors most useful for the further concentration of wealth and power to the elites with the reciprocal of human herd contentedness in becoming total subject minions of the elites.”
“That is a grim way to put it Kurt, though accurate enough. A corollary would be the theft of intellectual properties from independent worlds and individuals within a broader spectrum war on objectively independent, nonconformist to power singularities free enterprise, egalitarian democratic-republic planets.”
Zvim watched the pair of humans for signs of beast poisoning entrapment, and satisfied that the meat was clean of poison traps went to the skewer and took his piece of beast steak in his teeth.
Kurt said; “When you finish off the meat why don’t you look around the settlement for anything that would help us discover who and where the perps are and went Yo?”
Yo with his steak trotted off into the red darkness of Golden Plum.
“Seeing the night through rose colored glasses can become tiresome, I will ask the office to expedite restoration of Sendufax”, and she spoke to a link to her ship in stationary position above the atmosphere.

“I’ve encountered corporate religions at the edge of a few of the empires I have encountered over the years. They tend to become syncretistic and jettison inconvenient elements from historical holy books like the Christian/Jewish Bible. In some societies Sunday worship comprises viewing commercial entertainment sporting events.”
‘Those are troubling histories Kurt, yet consider that atheism and avarice are normalized elite characteristics even if it is avarice for power and control of all others. They may take up the sadist’s pleasure of controlling the interior of others- that is the thoughts and minds of sentient beings in order to support their self-conception as ontological gods.
I don’t know if you have given it much thought; there are n number of possible economic configurations for a world, a galaxy and economics locally, yet humans tend to select those that are less than optimal in regard to egalitarian allocations of opportunity for individual maximization of potential, and that are deleterious of the ecosphere within their self-sustaining geotemporal region. Humans are their own monkey wrench to the ecosphere as they develop comfort and power, intelligence and technology. Eventually elites wrench social development and concentrate power to themselves with an occasional false conscious belief that they are benefactors of humanity or of societies by enslaving them. The work of the dwindling worlds is to offset that historical bias with reinforcement of individualism, free enterprise and freedom of religious thought in addition to philosophical and theological license.
We know the Universe has an infinite number of independent sub-universes arising through eternal inflation. Nothing is eternal though that occurs temporally- even if it goes on forever, for time is a relationship between events, an order or ordinal relationship especially concerning thermodynamically subject substance inclusive of space as energy rather than space as true nothingness.
Therefore wrong ideas of elites repressing human free enterprise and thought may have religious destiny consequences…it is possible that the entire Universe with infinite branches is cardinally inferior to the spirit of God. Humans can only know an abstract structure of a theoretical Metaverse much less true knowledge of its boundary conditions that could be spiritual.
What is the shape and form of spirit, or even of Universe infinitely packed in the infinite dimensions of Hilbert space that could occur within a microdot? Quality economics require intelligent economic design from free thinking, free enterprising, spiritual beings Kurt.
So we of the Dwindling worlds have constructed neural networks of planets amidst the galactic wildernesses to create syntegrity for our artificial and human intelligence enterprise of grand scale that may be able to investigate more deeply regions of the Metaverse that are hard to reach. It is devastating for us to have the material avarice of elite subjugators and galaxy conquerors steal our intellectual capital for-themselves.”
“Sure, I agree with you Loren. You know my coyote has been gone a little bit too long and his location transponder has gone dark. Do you mind if I go off for a while to find Him?
“No, of course not Kurt. Go find your coyote. I will look into the vault for residuals.”
Kurt wandered off into Golden Plumb’s darkness probing its farther reaches for a sign of Zvim. He found an unusual three dimensional hologram standing wave image of a female coyote at the ruins of a police station, at its base was one of Zvim’s power boots. Kurt walked over to it, not wary enough, reached for it and was immediately drawn through into an elsewhen trap.
As he spun through confusement space his reading in basic astrophysical structures popped into mind. Elsewhen traps connect alternative universe threads into one of infinite numbers of infinite dimensions with infinite numbers of universes themselves. It’s is highly recommended that even explorers should eschew elsewhen transportation yet elsewhen traps were commonly used by aliens in adjacent fractal universe permutations to snag unwary sentients downward toward their own regions of being. Usually the dimensional matrices of universes trapping human were close to our own, so it was reasonable to leave a breadcrumb trail of altered string scale format along the course of travel to the new universe system branch through modification of inflation space characteristics that would hold shape for a while yet leave permanent formation traces upon pre-big banging incipient universes associated with local inflation space as locked in values of constants.
Kurt set loose an inflaton space agitating string vibrator from his camobattery defense vest to superposition heatless, massless, non-dimensional proto-string points trailing in his wake. Where he would end up only the aliens knew for sure. As he spun through the darkness he thought of the Lord and the Word’s capacity to shape all physical constants of every existing Universe as if they were ideas as spiritual moments of meaning appearing like predestined conformal streams in-themselves.

Loren finished her dumb beast steak, stood up and looked about for Kurt who wasn’t in sight through three hundred and sixty degrees. The ruins of Golden Plumb were smoldering and as unsettled as the dust storm continuing to stir Sendufax. She decided to venture to the Markmuster Inn to inspect the vault for herself.

Sophia grabbed the rope still attached to the front desk and moderated her descent four floor down with a magnetic rope climbing clip. She interfaced with thought sensors to control the pace down the magnetic cord to the vault floor.

The walls were made of strong data security bricks mostly impervious to burning, flooding and electromagnetic pulse insults. Though scorched by some great heat the data bricks would contain an exceedingly large volume of recoverable data bits. So Loren took an adherence control flexible tablet from her field kit bag, fixed it to the wall and moved her fingers deftly over the tablet’s i/o field programming it silently to interrogate and exfiltrated all reversible data and relay it upward to her ship above the atmosphere; the Space Vessel (SV) Shibboleth.

Within a few seconds a highlight audio stream of the salient facts of recent Sendufaxan history played for her in brain sound synthesizer from a stream sent from the Shibboleth’s mainframe.

Loren learned of the nature of the attack and attackers while she reattached her climbing clip to the mag rope and lifted upward to the lobby desk where she detached from the magnocord and walked towards and through the front entrance.

Kurt still hadn’t returned so she continued her inspection of Golden Plumb. The sensors that had observed events on the planet until those of Golden Plumb were destroyed were of no use in locating Kurt or his coyote. She continued carefully walking about until reaching the devastated police station. The first thing that she saw was coyote’s boot in front of the large image of a female coyote. She recognized a honey trap and looking a little closer discerned that an almost invisible someplace-elsewhen trap was the host of the image of the coyote.

So much for Kurt and Zvimmer she thought. I wish them luck wherever they are. She returned to her peanut orbiter and lifted off to mate with the Shibboleth and begin fine tuning the mission parameters in pursuit of the destroyers of Golden Plumb and theft of seven hundred and twenty-one trilobytes of intellectual capital.

The SV Shibboleth was a hive of forensic accounting activity with hundreds of astro accounts searching the stars and galaxies for a hint of intelligent dark energy design fraud. Dark energy was a favorite tool of the freebooters working for The Criminal Empire to insert an expanding barrier of space between honest Dwindling star systems and their construction at the edge of the observable region of the Metaverse. With resource systems beyond any immediate sort of space tunneling control systems from the honest Dwindling star systems that were just inhabited sparsely with Dwindling planet’s employees pirates found them ripe for easy plundering when they filled the sky overhead.

Loren exited her peanut shell and received visual input of the final salient events on Sendufax near and in Golden Plum. With live input active memory she saw inner visions downloaded via implant from the Shibboleth’s mainframe that included the hull of the ship with shaped-hull neural processing architecture.
A zero optical signature camouflage carrier black body ship opened its door near the Lived River of many slaughters south of the point of nihilism. It released a legion of invisible flying attack drones colorized by the Shibboleth’s A.I. for Loren to see. More emerged from beneath the soil of Sendufax to slaughter the A.I. in a multi-spectrum barrage of insults to existence. More raced quite fast up the Lived to attack Golden Blum began a systematic, quick termination of sentient life.
The Markmuster Inn though a security level four facility was a paper tiger to the overwhelming combined force of hundreds of drones reinforced by the drones that had eliminated bank operatives downstream. The black body carrier hopped from downstream with Golden Plum subdued and landed in the plaza in front of the Markmuster stationary a foot above the ground and opened its door once more to disgorge one grim figure; a Commandante Heneral Cheryl Scaldeen the Shibboleth’s A.I. political intelligence related. Apparently she had appeared at other robbery massacres in recent encounters of the bloodiest sort. Loren thought it good to know the face of the enemy instead of needing to chase an invisible empire.

The Criminal Imperial Empire had overt and covert branches of activists as well as special espionage operatives scattered around numerous galaxies in which were located the primary resources of the Dwindling worlds; formerly known as worlds with stable prospects. Yet where to look for a clue to the location of the invisible empire or even the support base for Commandante Heneral Scaldeen?

President Biden’s square peg for a round hole infrastructure bill method needs revision

 President Biden should be more innovative on packaging plans for an infrastructure bill. Infrastructure are those physical systems that allow a mass economy to physical work. That doesn’t include day care obviously. President Biden is a lawyer though- and lawyers represent people and know the laws well and often haven’t any idea about much else. They aren’t for example ecological economists with transparent before and after election ideas concerning how to reform the economy. Economists tend to be far more transparent than lawyers that have secret agendas and issues hidden from the public as a part of their job description. He shouldn’t antagonize Republicans with polarizing gun control to compel a disarmed populace agenda and ignore real economic issues.

President Biden has many female supports- his clients as it were, who want day care centers so he has grafted that onto a large transportation bill and skipped something like very high speed trains for cargo and people from coast to coast and along the Minneapolis and Chicago to Houston corridor that would be a legitimate infrastructure improvement bill. The President should find another way to get day care going besides the infrastructure bill. I suggest he give a tax moratorium for day care businesses for five years. A five year no tax policy for day care centers might elicit lots of new businesses. An oil depletion tax allowance existed forever so there is precedence for giving tax breaks to big business at least, and even solar panel manufacturers have been given tax credits; those are things the former senator should know all about.

So a little creative packaging President Biden… get than one trillion dollar tax bill with 500 m.p.h. trains or tube-maglev or vacuum-tube underground platforms installed and conventional bridges, solar power producing-sunlight reflecting highways and maybe liquid hydrogen fueled underground superconducting power lines in pipelines funded and just let free enterprise given a tax moratorium build the future Wal-marts day care facilities or maybe just a flood of very small business entrepreneurs supply the demand for a place for people to maroon their kids while they go off to work or cruise in their high-emission suvs and very large trucks to wait in line at McDonalds for high calorie breakfast sausage patty, eggs, bread and nuggets on the way to work at the oil corporation.

The President probably means well, yet it’s necessary to strategize correctly, intelligently to get bills passed that have any quality environmentally and economically. For instance, the idea of running vast left wing public deficits is a loser. A balanced budget is intelligent and has several good selling points generally. Getting Republicans to vote for any sort of tax increase isn’t going to happen and wastes a lot of public time. To get a tax increase done that has some kick the Democrats will have to pass it themselves on their one per year magic wish of 61 votes. Like the Bush 2/Obama tax cuts a Biden tax increase would change things if it was 60% per year on earnings greater than one million dollars and for corporations- a flat 30% annual tax.

Republicans these days fail to understand populism at all (hint Reagan was a populist) and can’t run good Presidential candidates with charisma. Neither can they comprehend like Nixon did about how to build a majority (another hint- don’t serve the poor a dope sandwich or treat the ecosphere like they were combat commercial fisherman fighting over the last fish and incapable of keeping an escapement quota of 2/3rds of the fish in the sea). President Biden apparently plans to continue with Trump plans to Vietnamize the Afghan-Taliban war by September 11th, and some remember how well ARVN allies worked out the last time. The U.S.A. still has military in Germany 70 years after the end of the Second World War and thirty years after the end of the cold war, yet the administration sees no wisdom in keeping even a couple of regiments In Afghanistan for another decade or two. That may be penny wise and pound foolish policy even as the President seeks to invest a half trillion dollars in day care ‘infrastructure’ in the U.S.A.

Some U.S. wingers are pretty ignorant about Jewish history in Jerusalem

 The American left probably is ill-informed about the history of Jerusalem and the Jews that have lived there during the past 4000 years. They really aren’t invaders. In fact not only have Muslims persecuted them and driven them from the city, so have Romans, Persians and Europeans especially the crusaders.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_and_Judaism_in_the_Land_of_Israel#Byzantine_period_(324%E2%80%93638)

Christians of the middle ages misunderstood the message of Jesus Christ (the prince of peace) and acted with Christianity as a political-military banner; most were illiterate. Of course Muslims had invaded Europe from one end to the other and were a constant threat to European existence. In 1099 when the first crusaders took the Holy land they slaughtered Jews mercilessly. Even so Jews continued to live in the region of Israel even while Jerusalem was off-limits.

Jews must have been accustomed to being banned from the Holy city after Romans, Byzantines and Sassanians enforced that edict. Mamluks and even the Umayyad proscribed select Jewish activities and foisted a temple of Muhammad onto the temple mount.

Israel was occupied by empires that sometimes tolerated their existence in the area yet sometimes razed coastal cities. Modern Euros and American leftists tend to think of Jews as an invading, colonizing force because they essentially are daft and devoid of historical depths.

Palestinians could from the beginning have lived peacefully with Jewish in a two state configuration of 1948 and they instead began their 70 years of hate mongering at that time dedicating themselves to the destruction of Israel. Yet Palestine had never been an independent state for itself and was generally under the rule of empires- lastly the British after they defeated the Muslim Ottoman Empire that was allied with imperial Germany during the First World War. Fundamentally hate groups like Hamas (it means violence) could have at any time selected a path to peace for-themselves. As the closest neighbors of the Jewish state they likely would evolve greater prosperity than most of those nations of the Middle East and hold jobs in Israel more so than now. Some borders can fade into trivialities when nations have non conflicts and similar economies.

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/555458-jewish-democrats-call-for-ambassador-to-combat-antisemitism-condemn-colleague

It is quite likely that Jews are smarter than Palestinians. World chess champions like Fischer and Kasparov were half Jewish. It is difficult to recall all of the great Jewish chess players because there were so many while the best Palestinian player at the last chess Olympiad rated somewhere around 1600. Jews could mentor their Palestinian brothers and sisters if the Palestinians weren’t teaching hate to their children and if Hamas’ gangster leaders could discover the value of peace.

If the American left just prefers to be wrong that is their free choice. Plainly the Republican Party hasn’t an ecological economic bone in its body and seek only to concentrate wealth. Democrats though also pursue that policy it should be noted, and socialist seek merely to make a bureaucracy of corporatism that is following Hitler’s economic agenda before the start of W.W. 2 to a certain extent.

I will point out that one of the scenarios for world economic evolution is for concentrated wealth and a planet full of wage slaves. Even space colonization of mars and etc. will be led by elites who can greatly assist the process of concentrating wealth. The left should have other realistic concerns than persecuting Jews as if they wanted to be Nazis too.

Terms of mapping the Universe-Pluralverse

If space is a substance rather than plain nothingness as has been traditionally thought, it should have a universal composition and nature that would in a way be comparable to quantum structures. If inflation is an expansion of space rather than some other cause, because more space substance seems to be created and fills an increasing volume, that seems opposed to the idea of nothingness expanding.

Nothingness as space in the absolute sense should neither be created or destroyed. It ought logically to have existed infinitely forever and isn’t capable of increasing or decreasing. Space as a substance on the other hand could have been initially finite to alternatively infinite and existing within the underlying host of nothingness.

There are several definitions of space as well as Universe these days that help to confuse the topics one is addressing for others. There are logical modal universes and alternate universes such as one finds in multi-universe theories derived from eternal inflation.

I wanted to point out that if inflation of space occurs forever as a localized process that moves on leaving nonexpanding space in its wake, that it is just as likely that the boundaries of substance-space move on through already existing infinite space, or bring more substance space within its moving boundary region as that substance space itself upsurges into being from nothingness. Of course one might infer that if substance space upsurges into being that it must be from somewhere other than the present region of its expansion.

The Universe is everything that exists. It is generally regarded as being made of energy or converted to mass, yet it is everything and logically infinite. Modern science has provided a wealth of confusion concerning what formerly was simple and given humanity the ‘multiverse’.

   When I was a kid the Hoyle hypothesis was still hanging on although heavily tattered. Einstein believed in a  static universe. I would guess he believed it infinite as did I when I first learned about those things at age 6 or 7. The profusion of Multiverse jargon since then has required a rethinking, yet ultimately the meaning of Universe remains intact as everything that exists rather than one part of a vast structure with an infinite number of others similar  to it connected by space or even juxtaposed in Hilbert space with infinite dimensions. Just because scientists discover new facts about the Universe concerning its structure that doesn’t mean they have discovered alternate Universes; it just indicates they did not know what the structure was of the Universe they were in.  The Universe is everything that exists including a goggleplex of other units inconveniently named universe 1 through infinity.

  Most people including scientists didn’t know the real structure of the Universe in 1950 yet most people probably assumed it was infinite and unbounded. When cosmologists, theoretical physicists and astronomers inducted, discovered and theorized about an expansion of their knowledge of the Universe and extrapolated  about other regions of space forming from inflation proceeding the Big Bang that may have continued after this observed Universe formed some 13.3 billion years ago more or less as the crow flies they choose to call those hypothetical regions of unobservable space universes too; primarily because they lacked a term for a meta-universe or greater universe that included all possible hypothetical universes of which there might be an infinite number. Basically they lacked a name for the new units of universe so they called it a Multiverse; and that was a bad choice though convenient for scientists at that time.

  Most people had an existing concept of an infinite unbounded Universe already yet lacked knowledge of its distant structure. Modern cosmology has been mapping in fact and with theory, hypothetical structures of space that include possibly an unlimited number of regions of space like the one scientists  knew before the rise of Multiverse theory. In a way a universe has been downgraded comparatively to the status of a galaxy. It as if scientists believed there was just one galaxy (Universe) and having found more or hypothesized about more existing galaxies existing they have developed multigalaxy theory. That is fine for galaxies yet doesn’t work with a Universe that should rightly be defined as everything that exists including that which cannot be observed. Plainly there isn’t a word existing presently for the unit that includes all of the galaxies and mass existing in a contingent expanded spacetime from an inflation or big bang that would disambiguate it from the infinite other potential units like itself. The Universe that includes all the universe-like units could be called the Metaverse reasonably well yet it would be better to name it the Universe and find a named for structures that are like the observable universe humanity lives in. One could call them big units, big bang units, second tier units, temporal verses, boroughs, legally defined regions of largest scale, etc however about any serviceable designation would be better than calling them universes. A universe is a good concept to retain. It is simple and suitable for an infinite and unbounded structure that is unmapped and perhaps unmappable. One day people may find a way to journey transcendentally beyond the boundaries of physical spacetime before death, and if so it might be useful to still regard oneself as being in the Universe when relocating to another unit.

  For an example of the circumstance, compare the Universe to a chess board. A chess board has sixty-four squares and the grid coordinates are labeled columns A through H and rows 1 through 8. Consider that in the past humanity lived in square A1 and thought of themselves as being located in the center of the universe in the middle of square A1. Though their knowledge of the chess  board universe did not exceed beyond square A1 the popular belief was that the Universe square had no limits and was infinite in extant (some humans did have other beliefs). After a few thousand years- within the past century and a half, scientists have learned more about the chess board and have observed the visible horizon limits of square A1 where they lived and developed  theories  concerning a vast number  of squares like their own existing beyond the edge or boundaries of A1. They call those new squares universes instead of regarding them as distant and almost inaccessible areas of the infinite Universe. It would have been useful to rename the new squares or theoretical squares as different areas of a universe without limits or for this analogy, a chessboard in Hilbert space with infinite dimensions and without an edge for-itself although it hosts/contains all space-time unit big banged squares.

 Physical space and energy quanta plus fields may not be the sole form of being; scientists seem willing to believe so though because it is observable and spirit or divine content generally aren’t. The Universe or Metaverse could be a though in the mind of God; who can say? Human language should at least keep a word  to define everything that exists and not regressively dispose of a word (Universe) for the all-encompassing Universe though it can have complex, distant and infinite areas difficult to map with different physical laws and non-contiguous space-time content events. Reducing the Universe comparable to meaning a small county amidst an infinite number of counties makes it challenging for people to understand the actual state of things of cosmology.

Actually, President Biden is running short on time to get stuff done

 If Republicans retake congress President Biden’s opportunity to reform government a little will end. Sure maybe he should rush Covid 19 vaccines to Taiwan and Japan so computer chip making and the U.S. economy can move forward better, yet he needs to get domestic items accomplished now or never.

Those could include building new infrastructure like a vast Mexican border fresh water making canal security boundary desalinating Pacific salt water siphoned or pumped up with pipelines (gosh they can build oil pipelines) and letting solar power evaporate and a plastic lid capture condensation fresh water. He could lead with new hyper-loop high speed (1000 m.p.h). tube trains for passengers and cargo from sea to sea and border to border- to demonstrate how newer faster ground transport can help make autos and select roads obsolete.

He could form a cheap Manhattan project to convert all U.S. road surfaces into sunlight photon capturing and converting surfaces with vast center left-right research, and then find a way to create new wilderness areas without roads and with limited human entry in some places.

It would be good to reform the patent process and limit exclusivity to seven years with 10% royalties to patent holders after that from others then free to manufacture the item. That would speed up economic innovation so some could happen before the end of the world from global warming and federal deficits.

The President could form a truth commission to investigate how much money the Federal Reserve has really let the rich mint via bank loans 5x that of every zero interest loan it gave to big banks exploiting the margin reserve and e-dollars for loans gambit.

Mr. Biden could establish a basic minimum annual income for all Americans so people don’t get permanently caught in economic undertows and socially adverse currents of repression.

College education could be made free through graduate school to allow intelligent Americans to pursue interests equal to their capacity.

The poor should be ale to get free medical service nationally without the state quilt of baloney technical paperwork.

Those earning more than a million annually should have a 60% tax rate.

Some day a President with an advanced degree in ecological economics may appear to lead the country in a transition to a sustainable economy. Yet it seems that just lawyers run on the demo side and Republicans don’t really want the job of President unless to get richer and make the rich richer.

President Biden hasn’t too much time to avoid becoming retrospectively another business as usual kind of top political leaders. Well, maybe he could stimulate production of wheat and soy pasta and noodle products to let the poor have some protein as well as carbohydrates in their diets.
