It’ll take a bit of work, playing around with the code and all. But I’m thinking that the theme I’m using here isn’t terribly appropriate, anymore. (Fire’s only one aspect of the system — and too many trees have burned down already.) Nor is it terribly appropriate for this to be a sole-author place.
Not at this late date, anyway.
But here’s the thing.
Without active engagement, that’s all that this place is ever going to be. That’s all that these ideas are ever going to be: trees, that eventually burn. Down, and to ashes. That’s what’s eventually going to happen — that’s what’s inevitably going to happen — without anything else from the system to add, rework, adjust, involve, and compensate. Because everything only lasts so long.
And I know that this site, although it’s deep web, has also been darknet.
Maybe without my knowing it, at the time. Maybe in obscure ways. But darknet all the same. And it’s a darknet that’s going to die unless something is done.
It’s just the way things are.
Unless the value you saw in this, and continue to see — is something that, in the end, you never really valued at all.
