Temporal Anomalies Expected

Tardis ConsoleWhile I am reconnected with social media at this time, various matters (some of which I shall post about shortly) have interrupted the normal cycle of blogging for me and as a result it might be longer than expected before I can return to A Hundred Cyborgs. In the meantime, I am still stopping by to check for comments, so feel free to wade in on any topic of interest.

Normal service will resume... somewhen.


Squiggles

Just need to update that book announcement, since the date has changed and I’m using it as my pinned Tweet on Twitter. Nothing more to report, I’m afraid… still busy – but Babette Babich has my edits to the new dialogue, so we are getting closer to another fascinating adventure of Babich and Bateman. Stay tuned!


Temporal Flux

Apologies for the slow running of comments, new content etc. but I’ve been travelling all over the place and am also swamped with various projects. I am progressing with Babich and Bateman III… hope normal service will resume soon! (If you’ve left a comment, firstly – thank you! – secondly, I hope to get back to you later this week.)


Brian Eno on Politics and Philosophy

We’re always being pulled in two directions, one is the sort of utopian side that says ‘we could make a better world’ and the other is the side that says ‘the world is getting bad, we’d better defend the bit we’ve got’. And that’s actually an easier message to sell, unfortunately. You can actually not ever find a position where you’re not doing politics. You’re always doing politics and you’re always doing philosophy as well – they’re sort of the same thing, you know. The position you take is a philosophy, whether you call it that or not.

Running Behind

This week’s post wasn’t ready in time – I only just finished it, and I don’t want to post precipitously without adequate time to mull upon its wording to an unhealthy degree that borders upon the obsessive. Suffice it to say it combines two classic topics of Only a Game: philosophy… and squirrels. Watch this space!
