An Unnamed Baldnobber

     No doubt the species history is much about screwing over everyone not in one's tribe.  I recently came across a Colonial Europe phrase, offered in Latin for weight, that, I suspect, says it all. The distant shores of "the colonies" were simply phenomena, not yet identified..."land/null".  Of course humanity has now absorbed and assimilated much of the phenomenal three dimensional world. Unfortunately, not so regarding the fourth dimension....the future.  Next year, it seems to me, should be at least as morally entitled as Australia must have been to an Englishman in the seventeenth century.  

     Whether this human instinct to catagorize the unknown as "null & void" is simple a viril, but bad, meme, or a  non-understood gene expression, or at worst an unknown consequence of a yet to be revealed univeral and immutable force, we just don't know.  As such, at least for a while,  we will probably continue to fuck it up, much like our parents past!
