Pure signal.

Principle of Mediocrity says…

Somebody got their ass beat:

Death Star galaxy blasts neighbor with planet destroying power.

I hope their version of NASA was better funded then our version.

The link provided has a graphic – go check it out.

The principle of mediocrity says that it is a good bet that other places in the universe have things going on in them kind of like the things that we have going on here. It’s kind of an extension of Occam’s Razor — I like the title, because as it subtly implies — we like to think we are special. Pretty much every civilization on earth has gone through a period of believing that other civilizations aren’t really “human” — we assume that because we are the center of our own attention that we are the center of the Universe’s attention. Actually, statistically, unless there is a clear reason why things are different somewhere else, if there is pretty much like here, then all the stuff that is there is probably pretty much like the stuff that is here.

Point being that there are likely some toasty aliens in that galaxy which we see getting smoked by a collimated plasma jet launched out the top of a galactic center.

Just think — that means that God weaponized the entire universe before we ever even crawled out the caves!

And that is why I am a Kali devotee!

  1. Well…

    If any aliens were harmed in the making of that picture… they were harmed 1.4 billion years ago. Yeah, blink-of-an-astronomical-eye, but relatively speaking 😉 it was a long, long, looooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnng time ago. Why you bringin’ up ole’ shit?

    Also, “The massive influx of energy and radiation from the jet may induce the formation of large numbers of stars and planets once its initial wake of destruction is complete.

    “Although we call it a death star galaxy, in the end it might be a source of new life in the more distant galaxy,” said Dr Hardcastle.”

    …which is why I’m more-or-less a Taoist. “…the destructive urge is also a creative urge.” The Principia Discordia (Zen for round-eyes) also has quite a bit to say about these Eristic vs. Aneristic principles.

    “And behold, thusly was the Law formulated:
    IMPOSITION OF ORDER = ESCALATION OF DISORDER!”
    HBT; The Gospel According to Fred, 1:6

    Here’s my favorite part, and as if by bibliomancy, applies also to your thoughts on culutural elitism:

    HERE FOLLOWS SOME PSYCHO-METAPHYSICS.
    If you are not hot for philosophy, best just skip it.

    The Aneristic Principle is that of APPARENT ORDER; the Eristic
    Principle is that of APPARENT DISORDER. Both order and disorder are
    man-made *concepts* and are artificial divisions of PURE CHAOS, which
    is a level deeper than is the level of distinction-making.

    With our concept-making apparatus called *mind* we look at reality
    through the ideas-about-reality which our cultures give us. The
    ideas-about-reality are mistakenly labeled “reality” and unenlightened
    people are forever perplexed by the fact that other people, especially
    other cultures, see “reality” differently. It is only the ideas-
    about-reality which differ. Real (capital-T True) reality is a level
    deeper than is the level of concept.

    We look at the world through windows on which have been drawn
    grids (*concepts*). Different philosophies use different grids. A
    culture is a group of people with rather similar grids. Through a
    window we view chaos, and relate it to the points on our grid, and
    thereby understand it. The ORDER is in the GRID. That is the
    Aneristic Principle.

    Western philosophy is traditionally concerned with contrasting one
    grid with another grid, and amending grids in hopes of finding a
    perfect one that will account for all reality and will, hence, (say
    unenlightened Westerners) be True. This is illusory; it is what we
    Erisians call the ANERISTIC ILLUSION. Some grids can be more useful
    than others, some more beautiful than others, some more pleasant than
    others, etc., but none can be more True than any other.

    DISORDER is simply unrelated information viewed through some
    particular grid. But, like “relation,” no-relation is a concept.
    Male, like female, is an idea about sex. To say that maleness is
    “abscence of femaleness,” or vice versa, is a matter of definition and
    metaphysically arbitrary. The artificial concept of no-relation is
    the ERISTIC PRINCIPLE.

    The belief that “order is true” and disorder is false or somehow
    wrong, is the Aneristic Illusion. To say the same of disorder, is the
    ERISTIC ILLUSION.

    The point is that (little-t) truth is a matter of definition
    relative to the grid one is using at the moment, and that (capital-T)
    Truth, metaphysical reality, is irrelevant to grids entirely. Pick a
    grid, and through it some chaos appears ordered and some appears
    disordered. Pick another grid, and the same chaos will appear
    differently ordered and disordered.

    Reality is the original Rorschach.

    Verily! So much for all of that.

  2. Chuk, if you were the only person who ever read my blog, I would keep writing JUST for your comments. No joke. (and for your email revision of Liber Resh)
