This one is from the blog of
pamelita's journal

Why Pamelita?

Aaah, what can I say, her journal got to me...

Who knows, maybe, The Muse has a voyeuristic streak.

Or, maybe, The Muse is too sentimental,

Or, maybe, just maybe, Pamelita is very good...and very talented...  More >

Lone figure and tree in stormy sunset
E.E. Cummings, Oil on canvas
No date

all which isn't singing is mere talking
— e. e. cummings

all which isn't singing is mere talking
and all talking's talking to oneself

master or disciple sheep or wolf)  More >

The movie (a 1973 Czech/French production) is based on Stefan Wul's allegorical novel Oms en serie ( Oms by the dozen—probably a play on word from the French, hommes.)

The symbolism of a powerful technological culture subduing a (literally) smaller one, then thoughtlessly underestimating and abusing its people, is clearly nonspecific enough to apply to almost any situation of political inequity:

"On one level, it can be interpreted as an allegory of the struggle of one culture against another (at the time it was conceived in the late 60s, Russia was in the process of invading Czechoslovakia) a concept that is still very relevant today as mass media threatens to homogenize the entire world.  More >

It is likely to be only a matter of time until a machine can truly act and behave as a "ditto" as imagined by David Brin in the previous post, and take over some of the tasks we now handle ourselves (those of us who don't have a personal assistant, that is), at least via some media.
While researching the previous topic The Musing Muse happened to stumble onto this related article that was introduced some time ago on NCN's Newslog, The Musing Muse also ran into the following piece about the Turing Test by David Joerg:  More >

Ever felt like you have spread yourself too thin and that it would take two or three of you to attend to all the demands you face or all the events in which you wish you could partake in a day? Let your avatar or avatars (i.e. fully interactive digital images of yourself) take some of the burden away from you. With the advent of Artificial Intelligence and the ever growing integration of the Internet into everyday life, the concept of meshing knowledge and personality into a digital clone that can search the web for you, sort and send e-mail and interact with others does no longer seem as farfetched as it once was.

 I wouldn't want to die — Boris Vian6 comments

Before having known
The black mexican dogs
Who sleep without dreaming
The butt-naked monkeys
Gobbling up tropics
The silver spiders in
Webs riddled with bubbles
I wouldn't want to die
Not knowing if the moon
Behind its fake nickel look
Has a sharper side
If the sun is cold
If the four seasons
Are really only four

"Wait, we can not break bread with you. You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans, and drink highballs. We will sell our bracelets by the road sides, and you will play golf. My people will have pain and degradation. Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. They said do not trust the pilgrims. And especially do not trust Sarah Miller. For all these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground."  More >
