011010: What a cool binary date. Reminds me of…
Perhaps to fill the vacuum, that nature does abhor
The story chose this vessel, to be its metaphor
Dueling with the either-or, in land of right or wrong
I, gray matters of the heart, cross common censor’s song
Rhythm technicolors in, the lines that drew this hint
Rock and roll with punches thrown, anger isn’t it
— Dream Yet Complete
Yeah, as the above and BlindEye attest, I’m not a fan of black and white answers to complex questions. It’s not that I lack conviction (though sometimes I do lack conviction), it’s that complex questions usually require more consideration than our polarized society is willing to tolerate.
While this might not make me popular, it just might help me be more useful in the ongoing struggle to preserve our habitat and our civilization.
On this same topic, I saw Avatar for the third time last night and saw allegories I’d not considered during the first two viewings. I’ll be exploring these alternate interpretations soon.
Tomorrow I’ll explain why 011010 is only the second coolest date this week… from my quixotically unique POV.
