Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Apocalypso

You know, we humans spend a lot of time contemplating the end of all things. So much so that we can make entire video collages out of various imaginings:

Eclectic Method - The Apocamix from Eclectic Method on Vimeo.



I sometimes wonder if, just maybe, it's because we're afraid. Not afraid of the end, but afraid of continuing. An end by its very nature brings finality, but until the game ends there remains the possibility of failure, of heartbreak, and of pain. Maybe the end of the world has such a siren song because we are lazy. Maybe, maybe not, but as far as I'm concerned...

Game on!
