The Darkener's Lair

A "lean and hungry" gentleman just wandered through, carrying a large bag.

“…And What Have We Learned?” —

The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought sickness, death and fear to the human species. The scientists of the world have created a vaccine, specifically designed to inoculate humans against the virus. Less the anti-vaxers, humans everywhere have spotted a bright shining light in the distance – one of hope for the future. One that broadcasts that […]

Warrior Spirit —

The season is coming back around and I feel the power….of the WARRIORS! I am so happy he made yt videos. I’m in the spirit to harness the energy. BRING IT ON!! (lol) P.S. I just realized that the post linked above was literally made six years and one day apart from this one. Not […]

COVID-19 Daily Deaths as of 2021/04/07 —

I find it interesting how the death rate was literally the highest at 2021/01/20, then started to fall drastically. Hmm, what happened on 2021/01/20? P.S. Annual death rate of influenza (the flu) in the U.S. is ~36,500. That’s an average taken from between 2010-2020. COVID-19 death rate is currently 560,000 for around 15 months. That’s […]

Every 28 Days —

The ‘week’ is a superficial construct. It’s not entirely natural, though maybe not ill intentioned. 7 days in a cycle, multiplied by 4 cycles a month. Months ‘swagger’ back and forth to compensate. The “alternative” (/s) to this manmade time-container is a more natural cycle of the moon. Something real and physical, visible and consistent. […]

Black Lives Matter —

I hate this term. It gives the impression that someone else’s perspective is at center stage and they’re feeling sympathetic toward the ‘poor little dark skinned people’, the ones who need to be stuck up for. “You matter too, sweetie!” ..makes me wanna wretch. What I’m saying is, I’m sad that we have not evolved […]

“Nature’s Responses” —

Kill me and I’ll Kill you first I’ve already rehearsed You worried of fire and flood Of tainted blood Now buried in mud But you kept hurting me With white hot machines Your toxic regimes But now I can see And now you can’t breathe Ironic it seems So how does it feel? Now is […]

Race —

This article is a very interesting history of Rock ‘n Roll music and the subject of race in its upbringing and subsequent widespread popularity. I’m not old enough to have experienced what it describes but the Internet is filling in a lot of gaps for me. It’s very interesting how *who* played Rock ‘n Roll […]

Collective Consciousness —

Some days I feel like the collective consciousness has immense power. Like the stories you hear about large group meditation causing measurable decreases in crime of that particular area. I feel like when large national/world events (I’m looking at you, Democratic debates) seemingly cause even those who aren’t paying attention (me) to be in a […]

Money and Power —

“A US government report last year said the nation should invest more in supercomputing, to keep pace with China on defense projects such as nuclear weapons and hypersonic aircraft, and commercial innovations in aerospace, oil discovery, and pharmaceuticals.” But nothing about using it to study the global environment or, more specifically, reversing the trend of […]

Virtualization —

Having been researching different open source types of clustering + virtualization + cloud platform technologies (IPVS/LVS, Proxmox, corosync+pacemaker, and at the moment openstack). I feel it is a probability that, based on peoples’ ability to advance this kind of thing at such a rapid rate, that we’re all living in a simulation (virtualized environment/reality). Think […]
