Notre Dame Cathedral Paris Devastated Fire
Nobody knows how the fire that demolished a cathedral in Monday 15th April, started besides it was a freak accident. Well, I personally do not believe in accidental coincidences. Try to realize that a fire couldn't be extinguished even when a cathedral itself is situated on the (eye shaped) island on the river crossing, with numerous division of firefighters doing all they can and everything happening in the very center of Paris. With the whole world looking in it's direction, the church was demolished by the infuriating pyre. The fire in an eye, gets a completely new meaning... I am not trying to freak you out. It is said that a mentioned building was a symbol of the Christianity through out the history, but little it is known about the other side of a coin. What kind of a symbol? What kind of a history? I am just thinking out laud. Undoubtedly that building is a symbol of the hope, but it is also a symbol of the suffering that led to its creation. Ask me... ( why?) The building was created in the time when most of the population of France was immersed into the poverty, illnesses and misery, still the reign of that time done so little to change it but instead the means of power and assets of the control were focused to much material and, well, completely unjustified actions. Well, tell me something new, not much different than today, but still, there are many improvements. The world in which that building was created was so much different that the one we see today. It is pitiful yet to see how much meaning we put into the objects of the worship, and not to the matters of the importance or priority. Cover Image Source Map image

#CollapseDiary - Christmas Day, 2018

It’s truly a beautiful thing. The DOW is down 3% today, and so I’ve decided to keep a diary of this End of Days and Financial Ruin of America and her Allies, Capitalism Currency and Nationalism. The dual purpose of this guide to the apocalypse is as a manifesto for the way we should conduct ourselves and carry forward, through the dismal days ahead, and reinvent the economical and social constructs everyone’s taken for granted for generations. Welcome to my little world. Christmas Morning, I had few gifts but the bigger joy came from watching my four year old niece open the majority of the spoils and become more overjoyed about her hand-crafted clothes that match her mom’s than she was her underwater digital camera or digital kid’s smartwatch. This is the epitome of the point I’d like to make: kids are innocent, and until we impress upon them ‘these coins buy you food’ they have no sense of what barter or financial transactions are. They understand cause, effect, and linear time - cry and get attention right up to Pavlovian conditioning to salivate at the sound of a bell. Cause and effect, linear progression of time… The DOW is down 19% since the start of this collapse, nearly 3% today. On Great Tuesday, the oncoming of the entire Great Depression, the DOW dropped 12% in one day.. While our current situation doesn’t seem that dire, if it continues accelerating at the rate it has been then we’ll be looking at equalling or surpassing the total downward trend of The Great Depression @ DOW $340 or so to $200. When all business shuts down and factories have materials literally on premises but there is no work, there are no strikes, there are no opportunities.. Other, supporting industries shut down. We won’t have running water, electricity, or food delivered to supermarkets - how will you survive? Who will you depend on? How will you make yourself useful? When the government collapses because there’s no money to pay anyone to do anything and inflation skyrockets just prior, what will you offer for barter to get enough food for your family to eat? Cryptocurrencies could be the answer. In local areas where there’s enough cooperation and community to create self-sustaining energy, networks could be created to (hopefully - as in our case) replay the entirety of Wikipedia and local Stackoverflows and other Stack sites (like Stack Survival… hint, hint) as well as keep an open ledger of barter transactions that you could even peg to a virtual currency. What of Bitcoin, Ether, Steem, or etc? Without a massive global network and the dozen or so DNS servers organizing the internet, these hugely distributed networks will fail themselves, and people will fork them to create their own local- regional- networks. Weed, as funny as it sounds, could be the answer. Marijuana can be grown in even harsher climates to some effect, and as it’s a popular choice for recreation, industrial applications and medicine, it could be a society’s staple currency. It’s bulky, stinky and is measured in increasingly large volumes - but a few grams of gold bullion is worth a bit for nearly being useless, maybe we will see people barter then barter then barter to come ahead? Without law, order, punishment.. What would the world look like? Will we see a rise in vigilantes? Without transportation, work, education, will we see a return to the traditional family unit? Without the ability to sustain metropolitan areas, will we see ghost cities as people ‘fan out’ and repopulate the countryside? What does that look like in China, where their population per acre is worrisome.. Genocide to preserve the race? Nearly 3% today, Tuesday, Christmas 2018. Why publish a diary to a Blockchain (or a few?) - there is an immutable nature of Blockchains and DPoS and all my info are recorded on nodes, and I’ll have my own witness node for each of these chains in the near future. I will have the record of this global event written promptly, deftly, and accurately… with a vengeance. What will the DOW look like tomorrow? What lays at the end of this rabbit hole? Will this document rival Pepys and The Great Fire London? Frank and Nazi occupation? Pilkington and sheer nonsense?
