“Into the hands of every individual is given a marvelous power for good or evil---the silent, unconscious, unseen influence of his life. This is simply the radiation of what man really is, not what he pretends to be.”
William George Jordan

Al Gore
“We have to abandon the conceit that isolated personal actions are going to solve this crisis. Our policies have to shift.”
Al Gore

“The feminine is on the rise,
Intutive express and completely divine.
The age of Aquarius has met our souls,
We've come to dance earth bound to re create this world.”

“If people only understood the incredible power of a shift in perspective. To be different you must think, feel, and act differently. Change your perceptions, change how you feel about things, and then take action.”
Akiroq Brost

Amal El-Mohtar
“You must dwell, says Garden, within time to shift it in lasting ways; play a slow game, but win.”

Arkady Strugatsky
“He had never experienced anything like this before outside the Zone. And it had happened in the
Zone only two or three times. It was as though he were in a different world. A million odors cascaded in
on him at once—sharp, sweet, metallic, gentle, dangerous ones, as crude as cobblestones, as delicate
and complex as watch mechanisms, as huge as a house and as tiny as a dust particle. The air became
hard, it developed edges, surfaces, and corners, like space was filled with huge, stiff balloons, slippery
pyramids, gigantic prickly crystals, and he had to push his way through it all, making his way in a dream
through a junk store stuffed with ancient ugly furniture … It lasted a second. He opened his eyes, and
everything was gone. It hadn't been a different world—it was this world turning a new, unknown side to
him. This side was revealed to him for a second and then disappeared, before he had time to figure it out.”
Arkady Strugatsky, Roadside Picnic

“Rise feminine, rise.
You owe no one an explanation to the woman you're becoming.
You've stayed quiet, conformed and obedient for far too long. Your soul is ready to dance.”

“Don't expect love if all you do is hate.

Don't expect big results if all your thoughts are small.

Don't expect a positive outcome if all your words are negative.”
Farshad Asl

“A new era! Yes, the cataclysm has done its work well. The greatest population regulator of all does once more for man what he refuses to do for himself, and drives the pitiful few who survive into a new stone age.
Once more the earth has shifted its 60-mile thick shell, with the poles moving almost to the equator in a fraction of a day. Again the atmosphere and oceans, refusing to change direction with the earth's shell, have wiped out almost all life.”
Chan Thomas, The Adam and Eve Story: The History of Cataclysms

Jared Taylor
“If California is the future of the United States, Los Angeles may offer a lesson. In 1960, it was 72 percent white, but in just ten years that figure dropped to 59 percent, and by 2000 the city was only 33 percent white. During the 1980s, while every other racial group was gaining in numbers, Los Angeles County lost 330,000 whites, and a startling 570,000 during the 1990s. Where did they go?
Beginning in the 1980s, California saw a major shift of whites from southern, immigrant-heavy regions to the white north. Many moved to Nevada County, which Mel Mouser, the police chief of the town of Grass Valley, called 'the largest concentration of Caucasians in the state of California.' In the 15 years ending in 1995, the county's population grew by no less than 65 percent and remained 93 percent white. The newcomers were looking for the kind of homogeneity they grew up with but had lost to immigrants. As Chief Mouser explained, the newcomers 'bring with them the common strain of thought: Don't let it be like where I came from.'
Although Americans have learned to give non-racial reasons like 'crime' or 'bad schools' for leaving cities, many ex-Los Angelenos were candid about what drove them away. As one 1990s transplant explained, 'People come here for a timeout, to go some place where racial problems don't exist. [...] And when they find it here, they're pathetically grateful. They want to protect it.' Another explained: 'I'd look at my daughter's classroom and see two blondes. [...] It seemed like there was more of everything else but whites.”

“The dirty secrets of high altitude astronomy are unnaturally high solar radiation levels, Faraday cage sickness, man-made electromagnetic exposures, breathing industrial gas, oxygen starvation, organ damage, gastrointestinal problems, malnutrition, altered hormones, Gender Dysphoria (GD), shift work disorder, mental illness and occupational diseases.”

“I moved from the day shift to the extreme night shift because I knew that they had a better acclimatization of a few hours at 9,200 feet, as opposed to the ridiculous half hour at 9,200 feet for the day shift. There was only one acclimatization from near sea level to 9,200 feet per week for the night shift workers, as they lived on the mountain for the duration of their shifts.”

“Extreme night shift work was lone working for up to eighteen hours per night for several nights on the very high altitude summit of Mauna Kea.”

“Not all breakups are loud and dramatic. Sometimes a breakup is simply a decision made in a quiet space in your soul, to not allow the other person to hurt you anymore.
No more explanations.”
Sama Akbar

“We did not receive any industry recognized training in extreme night shift work and correct sleep recovery when working nights atop the 13,797’ Mauna Kea mountain. My personal observations showed that sufficient daytime sleep recovery could not be achieved during the extremely long winter night shifts.”
Steven Magee

Reza Negarestani
“Or think of Goodman's own example: the shift from the analogue to the digital should be regarded as a veritable worldmaking. In this process, continuities are deleted. We are now in the domain of pure mechanizability: discrete inputs, discrete states, and discrete outputs. This shift realized by deletion is a radical one. The very distinction between human and machine collapses. The human world will be revealed as nothing but a special qualitative kind of integration of computational algorithms. As an alternative to this digital world, we can imagine a computational world where continuity, and above all the realtime interaction between the system or the abstract machine and its environment, is restored (supplemented). This is a new computational world in which the system and the environment interact without any pre-given limitations. The interaction is computation itself in a truly concurrent sense, to use the idiom of today's theoretical computer science. The prospects of such a paradigm of computation for remodelling the very notion of spirit or geist as a multi-agent system (interacting computational processes) is beyond our acquired practical reason, if not truly theoretically and practically unbound.”
Reza Negarestani, Intelligence and Spirit

Jamaal May
“...I don't know
if it's better to be good at a bad job or bad at a good job,
but there must be some kind of satisfaction
in doing a job so poorly, you are never asked to do it again.
...
I learned that I'd work any job this hard, ache
like this to know that I could always ache for something.
There's a hell for people like us
where we shovel the coal we have mined ourselves
into furnaces that burn the flesh from our bones
nightly, and we never miss a shift.”
Jamaal May, The Big Book of Exit Strategies

“I lost my circadian rhythm during extreme night shift work atop the very high altitude mountain of Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Waking up in the morning, staying awake during the daytime and sleeping has been problematic ever since.”

“I associate night shift work with circadian rhythm disorders, extreme working hours and tumors.”
