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.

A Butterfly of Doom

Prompt: "A wooden bench in a grassy field."

This month on Patreon:

This month, for regular paid subscribers, the main article on Patreon will speculate on the mysteries of sapphire mines in Elahera, Sri Lanka. In 1976, a mine in this location sourced the gem in a very famous British royal engagement ring. For upper tier subscribers, there are sneak peeks at my lastest literary offerings. I'll provide an overview soon on my literary blog, The Dragonfly. Join us!

In addition for paid subscribers, I cover the crypto bull run markets, with a comprehensive airdrop discussion. Free offerings include my newsletter (sign up here, bottom of page), discord (go here), and telegram (here). Come on by!

At the free and paid levels, we discuss the implications as artificial intelligence converges with blockchain technology, amid the decline and fall of TradFi - and perhaps - of the whole traditional order! As we can see above, an AI-generated image is worth a thousand words. 

While the disappearance of Kate Middleton from the public eye may not seem as important as wars in the Ukraine and Gaza, everything is connected. This is the oldest story in the book. Is Kate a Butterfly of Doom? A victim of Dragons Prefer Princesses? Or will she be, when all is said and done, an Apocalypse Maiden? Prophecies are Always Right - and whatever has been done to contradict them, You Can't Fight Fate

A larger story materializes, as we gaze at a bench that was never occupied. Related archetypes are baked into our consciousness, and into our reality. Any betrayal carries with it a trick of the tail, because intentional ills, once inflicted, are always undone by the events which a willing sacrifice unlocks or catalyzes. From TV Tropes:

From Shakespeare Online, Shakespeare's Omens and Prophecies:

As stars with trains of fire and dews of blood,
Disasters in the sun; and the moist star
Upon whose influence Neptune's empire stands
Was sick almost to doomsday with eclipse:
And even the like precurse of fierce events,
As harbingers preceding still the fates
And prologue to the omen coming on,
Have heaven and earth together demonstrated
Unto our climatures and countrymen.

(Hamlet, 1.1)

At my nativity
The front of heaven was full of fiery shapes,
Of burning cressets; and at my birth
The frame and huge foundation of the earth
Shaked like a coward.

(1 Henry IV, 3.1)

Move in that obedient orb again
Where you did give a fair and natural light,
And be no more an exhaled meteor,
A prodigy of fear and a portent
Of broached mischief to the unborn times?

(1 Henry IV, 5.1)

Beware the ides of March.
(Julius Caesar, 1.2)

No natural exhalation in the sky,
No scope of nature, no distemper'd day,
No common wind, no customed event,
But they will pluck away his natural cause
And call them meteors, prodigies and signs,
Abortives, presages and tongues of heaven.

(King John, 3.4)

Calpurnia here, my wife, stays me at home:
She dreamt to-night she saw my statua,
Which, like a fountain with an hundred spouts,
Did run pure blood: and many lusty Romans
Came smiling, and did bathe their hands in it:
And these does she apply for warnings, and portents,
And evils imminent; and on her knee
Hath begg'd that I will stay at home to-day.

(Julius Caesar, 2.2)

These late eclipses in the sun and moon portend no good to us.
(King Lear, 1.2)
