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.

If we believe that the heavens control our fates, then we have just turned a corner into a new world, and 2021 will be our year of destiny. The Patreon post considers astrologers' claims that the December 2020 solstice and Grand Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in the sign of Aquarius marked the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.

What does that mean? For a decade on this blog, I have asked the one question which lies behind all others. It informs our concerns with Trump, Brexit, the EU and the CCP, the economy, and corona. The question is simply this: Can we engage with high technology and still retain our humanity?

The catch is that humanity is not defined in terms of how we engage with technology, but in terms of the ways we experience time, through mortality and immortality. Temporal, not technological, boundaries determine our consciousnesses and consciences.
