October First No Gamma Burst... So Far So Good.

Wow, it’s October 1st! Time flies. I’m only just starting to be settled into the new place after the move from the Poconos mountains in Pennsylvania back in July 2022 to the friggn island again in New York City. Doesn’t even feel like NYC. Don’t get any of the benefits of NYC. I just have to pay that much higher of living expenses, PLUS other surprise ongoing expenses. I’m going to have to do something about that sooner or later. The sooner the better. Frig. Okay, enough of that stuff. Focus on the positive and visualize the even more positive. We are actualizing machines, we privileged sentient conscious beings. We overcome the dissolution of things. We make the chemical reactions of the Universe as interesting as possible during this particular oscillation we find ourselves in, between what we call the Big Bang and whatever comes next, which I feel is much up to what the life does with its turn during the oscillation. Why not type 4, 5 or 6 on the Kardashev scale? The center cannot hold says Yates. I say why can’t it? Step 1: survive filter events. Check! Step 3: prosper, hang with God or whatnot. Could be a lot of things. Any way you look at it, it’s probably better than getting fried in the next local gamma burst.
