Most people know who they are, and most of us also know when and where we were born. However, do you know what you are or why you were born? How would your life be different if you had been born somewhere else? What if you had been born 100 years ago, or 10,000 years ago?

As far as we know, Earth is the only planet in our solar system that harbors living things, and we humans are king of the hill. We are so dominant, we have exterminated many other species, and we now have the power to destroy our own species. Clever humans have even coined words like genocide, biocide, and ecocide. How cool is that?

Human evolution, science and technology, religion and spirituality, and the dark world of politix are all intriguing things to explore. And why in the world do people have so many crazy dances? If dance is such an important part of being human, why do so many people not dance?

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. — Carl Jung

Most of my projects focus on politix, as I call it. Some focus on psychology and philosophy. This site is more holistic, featuring musings on a variety of topics.

Spoiler alert: Unless your roots are solid African, you are almost certainly part Neanderthal. While most mammals are parasitized by their own unique species of louse, we humans are hosts to three species. Not all Semites are Jews, and most Jews aren’t Semites. Nor were the “Nazis” the most evil people who ever lived.

In other news, the Roman Empire lasted over 2,000 years, but the U.S. looks set to collapse after about 250. I’m very skeptical about the prospects of ever colonizing another planet, and I’m certain no foreign orb will ever serve as a refuge for human fleeing their own environmental mess. How can we colonize another world if we can’t even sanitize a creepy city like Seattle?
