Time: the elephant in the room.

“Clocks slay time…time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.” –William Faulkner

“You can’t go back.”

“We must go forward.”

Yeah, ok…

…now take a moment, look away from the computer, and think of a pink elephant hovering over your head.

What Antarctica says about Star Trek.

The view from McMurdo.

“The land looks like a fairytale.” — Roald Amundsen (1872—1928) about Antarctica.

“Great God! this is an awful place.” — Robert Falcon Scott (1868—1912), also about Antarctica.

Antarctica. What does that have to do with primitivism?

Probably not much.  In fact, maybe just this: Antarctica told me that Mars sucks. Oh, and that Star Trek is a load of bull.

Yeah, honest. That’s what she said.

Now let me explain.
