kill list

kill list

The drone war's never ending kill list can only be compared with the permanence of the Gulag system's kill list. Its high- tech and its historical ultimacy make the drone war a crime without precedent - ignored in the filter bubble we live in.

guanxiu luohans

贯休  guanxiu . the 16 luohan engravings

heaven s fitters

big bang  —  today's physics in deadlock

EINSTEIN WAS WRONG. BUT TODAY'S ASTROPHYSICISTS FLOP No one can conceive where time comes from and what time really is. – Makes it any sense to come up with the idea there must be an energy that drives scaling of space forward?

space scaling

not dark yet  (on dark energy)

Is it really enough to take distance measurements of supernovae or to deduce the distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud  to claim: "That's the key to unerstand expansion of the universe." ?  – My skeptical first questioning (a draft).
