Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Hallowe'en Countdown 2015: The Valley Fire

In mid-September 2015, a family escaped in two separate cars from California's Valley Fire. They survived but lost their home and all their possessions. Their photos and footage of their dramatic escape from Anderson Springs, in the northern part of the state, went viral online (they asked for donations to rebuild their lives, here).

The fire broke out on Cobb Mountain at 1 p.m. Below the jump, see three dashcam videos of what the scene looked like in the populated valley by 8:30 p.m. The fire was so hot that the car window and door burned one of the drivers. One local paper, The Press Democrat, filed all reports on the Valley Fire here. The fire covered 76,000 acres (308 square kilometres); it is considered the third-worst fire in California's history.

Forest fires have burned out of control due to a terrible drought that has ravaged California for the past five years, leading to almond trees, pistachios and other crops being irrigated with oil and gas wastewater, and water rationing in California's cities. For California, El Niño is supposed to bring a wet winter (see a live map of the temperature of ocean currents here). This may replace California's fires with floods, and bring ice storms to the eastern USA and Canada, identical to the years 1997-1998.
