Insects are drawn to the light …
Continuing with the time theme and also following-up on the notion of Horizon 2020 as innovation nonsense …
Many insects (not just moths) are drawn to the light. Researchers are like that too. Turn on a light (that is to say provide funding for a topic) and the insects will flutter around it. Turn it off and then switch on another light, and these very same insects will flutter over to the new light. Very rarely will any of the insects question the light or challenge whether it is appropriate. That’s because they are caught in a loop, constantly reinventing themselves in exactly the same form that they were the day before, only calling themselves by a different name. Deep down they are just the same people caught-up in western (European) ideology, and certainly not interested in exploring the taken for granted assumptions, values, etc. which all those so called ‘value-free’ researchers are not prepared to have exposed to the public gaze.
So what happens when a light is turned on, but the light lies outside the spectral range of all those insects?
The above is a brief glimpse, into how to unleash the forces of creative destruction against the economies of the western world. People in
China and India
should take note of my past and future blogs about the nature of time, about Europe being cursed by Nemesis and condemned by Zeus, and
about the Tao. Few of those with European/Western minds will understand what I
am talking about. They still think that the whole world is going to play by
their stupid Enlightenment rules! The new competitive advantage of the nation
lies in culture and the empty materialist and soulless culture of the Western
world has no future. It is time to change.
And all you binary thinkers note that this does not mean that I agree with the way that
deals with those who show dissent. But in this, they do what all with power do,
the only difference between them and the West, is the trigger point at which
they react and the means they use to enforce conformance. In the end all
governments are evil – the point of difference is the degree of evil. And all
will, given the right circumstances, hand to the dissenters, that phial of
hemlock that Socrates preferred to drink rather than to surrender to the will
of the small minded empty people who, in seeking power, find it in the institutions
of the Nation State and now also supra level state institutions such as those
found in the EU, and in particular, in the European Commission and its research
programmes, and once more we are back to those insects and, next week, the ICT
Research Programme, where there are many insects fluttering around lights.
