Surely we must all bear our share of guilt and deep regret, some sadness at the idea that here we are, another August into our existence, and whether we arrived by way of evolution or intelligent design or the hand of God working over the void, no history can record that we've progressed beyond our hateful, warring and fanatical ways.
We may be irreversibly committed to play out the saga of Iraq. But each of us, we humans, if we are to look our own kind in the eye, should at least be willing to say we're sorry, that all over our smaller and more lethal planet, whatever the causes, we're still killing our own kind - the same but different - but our own kind nonetheless
On a side note, a photo from the israeli pullout from Gaza. Olive trees and the Lexus, aptly put by Thomas Friedman. Lets stop fighting over olive trees.

Here's what I get very frustrated about.... its great that these guys are able to do emergency repair work like this, but is this what the time in space should be spent on ? NASA needs more funding people... fund them so that they can build the next generation of the space shuttle, something that does not have to rely on stone age era tiles(brittle ones at that) to provide protection against excessive heat during re-entry.
What if the entire world put aside its military spending for one whole year ? We could end poverty everywhere and build massive space stations ... can we not ? Humanity...let us evolve ...TOGETHER.
Gives a good run down on CBD.
I just love the concept of CBD and wish we had the right kind of tools to make it more universal. I got to create my own set some day.
With every new paradigm, Tkach's complexity gap exists. CBD is just a way to get back the complexity to pre procedural days. That should come as a surprise to many, but if you think about it, its true isn't it. The systems that were being built were simpler in those days, hence the level of complexity even with primitive languages and infrastructure was much lower. Hence the argument.

The Hindi movie Raincoat by Rituparno Gosh proved me so wrong.
