Well, it's official now.
The New Age is dead.
It was already in the hospital in the mid eighties, then was moved into the hospice at the turn of the century. There it lingered on, until the global recession hit ... hard ...
RIP, New Age.
How do I feel about it?

Well, it's official now.
I saw the other day on BBC TV a science spokesperson make the case that the normal way in which things are reported by the BBC, namely to state one opinion, and then to find another alternative opinion to give a balanced view of the situation or argument, should be suspended in the case of science, as science knows the truth, and anyone who holds a divergent opinion to whatever that science truth may be, must therefore be a deluded idiot and should never be quoted on TV.
This incredible arrogance that goes even beyond what the Catholic Church would dare say in public these days has prompted me to think about science - and how deeply disappointed I am with science the religion of the 20th century.
Here is my open letter to the members of the church of science.
I have been watching the British election chaos of 2010 with some interest and from some different perspectives.

Has Microsoft solicited the services of Satan for their new Windows 7 operating system advertising campaign entitled, "I am a PC ..."?
I've been getting increasingly more fed up with the state of affairs in the UK. 112 years of labour government, and all the fun seems to have gone out of everything. Endless annoying laws "for your own good". Speedbumps everywhere, metaphorical speedbumps as well as real ones, and I hate both. Tightening the screws on personal freedom. Such as the new proposed law to make it illegal to smoke in your own car.
What is a person to do, we ask?
On behalf of the super admins of The StarFields Network, I would like to welcome I SAW THAT DOT COM to the world wide web!
SpaceNodes have a habit of inspiring new projects and visions, and to make friends with the Zeitgeist is certainly a good idea, especially if you're getting on in life, getting married, getting long in the tooth, as the case may be.
So, who is the Zeitgeist, and where do you get to meet it in person? And what happens when you do ...?!
