Lucifer's Technologies: Fallen from the Sky

Technology rules our lives, so much so that some Futurists predict that humanity will be replaced by robots and artificial intelligences. 

How exactly did the postwar technology boom come about? Nothing like it had ever been seen in human history and we're still sorting through the breakthroughs made in that era.

Lucifer's Technologies: Our Deal with the Devil Comes Due

Aside from Milton's Paradise Lost, Lucifer appears in another great literary work, also written in the 17th Century; Christopher Marlowe's Tragical History of Doctor Faustus

This treatment of the Faust myth predates Goethe's more famous version, and tells the story somewhat differently. But the basic contours of the story remain the same, that of a brilliant man who sells his immortal soul to the Devil in order to gain forbidden knowledge, a pact he believes will grant him advantage in this life.

Go Back to Hell, Lucifer. You're Embarrassing Yourself.

What a shitshow

I just read that Fox has renewed its "adaption" of the Vertigo/DC comics series Lucifer for a second season. I use 'adaption' in the loosest possible sense, in that rough contours of the long-running comic series can be gleaned from time to time in the TV series, but they're buried underneath an almost unimaginably-inappropriate (and gag-inducing) police procedural.

Sync Log: The Fox and the Flocks

Jupiter and Moon, taken 4/17 

I ended the previous post (about the Ba'al Gate controversy) with this conclusion:

I've been finding myself looking at all my Mesopotamian books lately, my Samuel Noah Kramer books and all the rest of them. In comparison the Egyptian material seems almost whimsical, comforting, much more like the Bible than Jews or Christians would want to admit.

Safe-Space Satanism

You might be one of those people who thinks hipsters ruin everything they touch. You might think that 21st century youth culture- once a cauldron of sex, style and subversion- has been neutered and blanderized and sucked dry of meaning, vitality and most of all, menace.

 If so, you may want to stop reading now.

At the same time I was posting on the very strange story of Kyle Odom and his war against the aliens, a UFO-related story of a considerably different order was going live, hitting several major media outlets.
