me-'kä-nEks* | chaotic disequilibriumI recall an ecology lecture I attended in which the lecturer described nature as being in a constant state of flux. There is no natural balance, he claimed, only a perennially shifting disequilibrium in which partially opposing forces work in a way that could--although mostly inaccurately--be described as "in concert." From all of this, we discern a sum that is, while not in balance, something that begins to remotely approach sustainability.
This is my life.
currently, i'm thinking about...
What follows is a short piece of writing that speaks for itself. Problem is, it doesn't really say what I want it to. I'm considering using it as a springboard/intro for a larger piece, perhaps covering the issue I originally intended to address--the questions that inevitably arise in the taking of a human life--but in a less direct fashion, and alongside a host of other, larger but perhaps less timeless issues in a Snow Crash-esque, quasi-apocalyptic environment. Or maybe not. *shrug* At any rate, check out "Hand to Hand."

h2g2 code blockIn an act of protest against the stagnation-inducing practice of protocol adherence, I refuse to post my h2g2 code block with the standard formatting. In addition (and in support of the development of more flexible information architectures), I've added a rather intuitive and self-explanatory feature to the system: whenever you see a .5 in front of a + or -, well, it means .5.
