Irresistible Fiction: Utter Bullshit
Almost a century ago, scientists searched to find the smallest particle of matter in the microverse. Instead, they found puzzles and funhouse reflections. Deep down inside the atom, things got strange, and even Albert Einstein tried to sweep it all under the rug.
But that strangeness at the core of the atom sat under that metaphorical rug, and waited.
Every once and awhile, we lifted the corner of the rug and picked out little bits of quantum strangeness that suited our needs. But most of it, we avoided as improbable, waiting for another Einstein to sort it all out for us.
Bullshit, my friends, is on the rise, and reaching historic levels.
Across the multiverse, it appears that all of those little bits of quantum strangeness have reached critical mass.
The pent up quantum strangeness appears to have begun to release itself in historic, multi-cosmic waves of bullshit.
There has been a surge in first, and second term Trump presidencies across an infinite number of worlds. In a dark, and frightening swath of the unending abyss, Trump has seized power in America as a warrior king, leading literal packs of wolves from Wall Street.
The infrastructure in place, to protect against the build-up of bullshit is old and weak. In a frightening array of worlds, the bullshit flood is topping walls that have stood solid for centuries.
If Trump is President in your world, know that you are currently experiencing historic levels of bullshit. Unfortunately, we can’t say for sure when you can hope to reach peak bullshit. Until bullshit levels return to normal, please use common sense as much a possible.
Eventually, we are afraid, the whole multi-cosmos will be awash in bullshit.
Then, and only then, will we be able to come to terms with what scared Albert Einstein. But, that’s for another episode.
In the meantime, a little uncertainty will be good for us all.
Bill Murray: “It just doesn’t matter.”
That’s Bill Murray, chanting at the end of this episode. The clip his from his role as a summer camp counselor who helps a boy come to terms with his terminal cancer. Murray won the best supporting actor Oscar in the 1979 tear-jerker, Meatball Stew.
