El que se tenga por grande
que se vaya al cementerio
y verá lo que es el mundo
es un palmo de terreno …

The Sinking of the Titanic

"[T]he band was still playing. I guess all of the band went down. They were playing Autumn then. I swam with all my might. I suppose I was 150 feet away when the Titanic on her nose, with her after-quartet sticking straight up in the air, began to settle - slowly....the way the band kept playing was a noble thing.....and the last I saw of the band, when I was floating out in the sea with my lifebelt on, it was still on deck playing Autumn. How they ever did it I cannot imagine."

"For 10 years the local public radio station used to play the long version once a year. Eventually it became such a disruption that they had to stop. Listeners bombarded the station with calls of concern, the police were called almost every year by people assuming that something terrible had happened or that the station had been taken over by evil forces. Hypnotic and unfogettable."

"touch things with consideration and they will be yours; you will own them; they will move or stay still; they will move for you; they will lie back and part their legs and yield up their innermost seams to you.

They'll teach you all their tricks.
He knew what the Beats know and what the world's great tennis player knows, son: learn to do nothing, with your whole head and body, and everything will be done by what's around you."

"That says that systematically, the bigger the city, the more wages you can expect, the more educational institutions in principle, more cultural events, more patents are produced, it's more innovative and so on. Remarkably, all to the same degree. There was a universal exponent which turned out to be approximately 1.15 which translated to English says something like the following: If you double the size of a city from 50,000 to a hundred thousand, a million to two million, five million to ten million, it doesn't matter what, systematically, you get a roughly 15 percent increase in productivity, patents, the number of research institutions, wages and so on, and you get systematically a 15 percent saving in length of roads and general infrastructure.
One of the bad things about open-ended growth, growing faster than exponentially, is that open-ended growth eventually leads to collapse. It leads to collapse mathematically because of something called finite times singularity. You hit something that's called a singularity, which is a technical term, and it turns out as you approach this singularity, the system, if it reaches it, will collapse. You have to avoid that singularity in order to stop collapsing. It's great on the one hand that you have this open ended growth. But if you kept going, of course, it doesn't make any sense. Eventually, you run out of resources anyway, but you would collapse. And that's what the theory says.
The picture emerges. Companies are more like organisms. They grow and asymptote. Cities are open ended."

Feels like home


"That this discomforting work was composed by a couple of prog rock-obsessed Columbia College professors makes it all the more interesting. Foisy and keyboardist/singer Terence Hannum, who started performing as Locrian in 2005, do not come across as doom-obsessed loners hellbent on chronicling humanity's destruction. Quite the opposite, in fact. Like modern day archeologists, the two find a sort of alien beauty in abandoned structures.

"There's this tension we play with between horror and beauty," says Foisy. "In a sense, we are critiquing capitalism and our culture of buying-and-selling, but we find a lot of beauty in that.""
