" Peak everything" (2007) · 11:17pm July 30th

Once upon at time Chatoyance noted somewere on this site, in connection to her Conversion Bureau future stories: "it will be peak everything".

I looked up this exact phrase and book surfaced! Non-fiction, of course .

As somewhat more math-involved 'spiritual' follow-up you can read

I read much more than I write, and thankfully this specific horse pic did not lead to me being angry. Because, well.. this is about contributing to someone's/collective life instead of exploitation

"On education" (repost) · 12:52pm Jun 7th, 2021

I found this theme resonating...

https://www.resilience.org/stories/2021-06-07/on-education/

Moreover, through this educational system where every child is judged by these dominant group standards, we are training our children to aspire to be like that dominant group, to want to join that group, to believe that they are less worthy or even worthless if they are not members of that group — when almost nobody ever joins that group!

Ponies, in space! (actually not, just frame) · 7:40am Feb 7th, 2021

Renegade Cut, review of 'Shape of water'

at 8:18 ....

Quite a lot of 'bad things' obviously NOT safely contained in past times ...

Also, because film points back into 1960x it probably worth saying there was and still ongoing some real story around dolphins ..and other non-human beings.
"The Girl Who Talked To Dolphins"
hm, it was on youtube ....
