The Artefact by TheChanChanMan

What was 'The Excession'? Nobody knew. That was the problem. It was a Galactic scale black swan event, certainly. Seemingly connected t...

Discourse of the analytic by Maurice-Le-Coq

The difficulty in writing a critic is knowing where to begin. This is a grand tribute to the whole history of modern art from cubism to...

"You and I won't live long enough to see whether my predictions prove accurate - I doubt whether anyone alive today will. For what it's worth, my guess is that it'll be curtains for a lot more species than it's already been curtains for, but that our species won't actually go extinct in the foreseeable future. I'm pretty sure we'll suffer a drastic reduction in numbers, and the total collapse of technological civilization - probably not in a single catastrophe, but in a series of ever-worsening disasters over a fairly protracted period. A rump of humanity will probably survive in the ruins, initially making use of bits and pieces of the wreckage, and gradually - as Nature reclaims the Earth - reverting to hunter-gatherer and slash-and-burn lifestyles."

Coshipi, a respected DA member wrote the above. because this is such an important issue, I am placing his words in a journal. Our conversation started with assisted dying. Personally I fear assisted dying like the devil. Being a woman with not much money or power of assets I fear that the day when I am dependent on state pension I might be vulnerable. Governments all over the world are in debt. Our own district borough council was in debt to the tune of £500,000 in 2010 but now in 2014 that debt is rising to £1.8 million. The main reason in our case is because the central government fined our council for not building new homes on the green belt - a large area of land which by law has been protected to keep London green. Our Council used government money to renovate old houses rather than build new ones and was fined heavily. There are other reasons why our debt has grown but the problem remains. Our council is under tremendous pressure to sell of public assets to pay off their fines.

In short all British people are personally involved in massive public debt and I wonder where this will lead. At a time of global climate change we need innovative thinking and green schemes to help us survive but the pressure of debt will probably lead to selling off resources rather than using them for the future. I suspect that Assisted Dying will in the future be used to ease the passage of the poorest, like me, rather than keep 'unproductive' mouths fed, as they are now.

The future is upon us. Land in England was flooded badly over the winter. Now it is dry again but as oceans rise England will lose productive land. If we have fracking that will fill the air with more hydro-carbons, leading to more pollution and warming. Our water tables will also be polluted. We are entering a world where water will be the most precious commodity yet now it is used as if it is limitless and cleaning cars with it is okay. And what about all the junk we throw away such as detergents, shampoos, contraceptive pills and all the many pollutants we pump into our water supplies?

I am hoping that this journal will bring in people, such as Ragnar949, and many other intelligent posters, who think about the future we are entering. Please come on here and let us discuss how the world is changing and what people think we might be able to do about it.

As a note to Assisted Dying, this is very interesting about the Oregon experience www.patientsrightscouncil.org/…

We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being.

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious until she has decided how to start our journal, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures.
