About this blog

Primarily trying to raise awareness that Plate Tectonics is wrong, and that the Earth is getting bigger ("Earth expansion /Expanding Earth"), and thereby such attendant issues as :-
1.  Why we should care (abuse of public trust + science ethics + implications for physics + squandering money and educational and societal credits /social capital) .] and thereby such other attendant issues that are really none of my business but nevertheless bug me and so help to move it all along, such as :-
2.   The public's readiness to acquiesce to 'being sold to' by spruikers (/'pied pipers') for reasons of comfort, inclusiveness, the trust we put in 'experts' [Feynman], and obeisance to 'authority' ('sheeples'), thus highlighting further thereby public complicity and its potential for exploitation to its detriment.  ("Self-harm".)
3.  "Dedicated followers of fashion" = being all of the above and the root of it all, namely the place of the individual in society, and the cultural and traditional screws (+ emotional and physical) that society exerts in return to maintain its cohesion.

'Dominoes' in other words.  Getting them round the right way, at the right scale and in the right order in relation to societal evolution and trying to work out what that should be, seen through the lens of such tectonic issues as 'plates' (scale, 'flat Earth v. round earth), 'putting the washing out' (weather / climate), change), democracy (Britain and Brexit), (exultation of Pathological Narcissism, its namesake being millennials and that mesmeric man in America ),  "National Socialism" (Nazis) being the appropriation and abuse of language in order to further such wonnabee issues such are whatever you want them to be, but are guaranteed to rouse the sheeples, and generally the role of consensus in society (generally) (point 3 above).

My education in other words too, .. what I should have been much more aware of in the past but only now seem to so much totally at a loss about that I can't even work out what I should buy and what I shouldn't, and can't even get past the still-useful rubbish I need to chuck out in order to crest the next wave.  In keeping with my cheat sheet, however, I'm going to turn that list up there all around and go slow with the Earth expansion, because I've done it all before, nobody seems to be that much interested, and it'll be better anyway if I take my time to revise it.  In matters of science, politics, public and personal, .. sheeples are sheeples (but me trying not to be) and what will be will be, .. mostly the biblical bit about a chase after wind.

... Talking of which, ..
