Bitcoin bull Mike Novogratz warns of ‘existential crisis’ if the US fails to create digital dollar…

Bitcoinstier Hermann (zie afb., red.): ‘Ik sluit me aan bij de woorden van m’n geachte Amerikaanse collega Mike. Maak haast met de digitale gulden, beter bekend als de eCruyffie, of Nederland eindigt als een openluchtmuseum voor de Chinezen, met rondvaartboten die dwars door oneindig laagland van Amsterdam naar Giethoorn gaan, bemand door methverslaafde klonen van Hielke en Sietse Klinkhamer, welke in armzalig schoolmandarijn uitleg geven over diverse bezienswaardigheden, zoals Molen De Woudaap, waarin sjamaan Kees ayahuascatherapie en cupcakecursussen geeft aan conspirituele trofeevrouwtjes, of het…

Techgoeroe Chriet Kopjes: ‘The quantum matrix is approaching a tipping point. Soon there will be an ennobling of peace the likes of which the quantum soup has never seen. It is in blossoming that we are recreated. Consciousness consists of four-dimensional superstructures of quantum energy. “Quantum” means a deepening of the higher. The temporal differential we call wakefulness is the cosmic interaction of subatomic particles operating in the quantum field, the (quantum)leap represents a fundamental universal constant that we can only speculate upon in the macro scale of wave form frequencies.’ ‘Wtf was dat, Chriet?

Sterrennacht | artist: Vincent van Gogh

‘With regard to the issue of content, the sublime beauty of the sexual signifier seems very disturbing in light of a participation in the critical dialogue of the 1880s. However I’m troubled by how the internal dynamic of the biomorphic forms verges on codifying the accessibility of the work. It’s difficult to enter into this work because of how the disjunctive perturbation of the spatial relationships brings within the realm of discourse the distinctive formal juxtapositions.’
‘Wtf was dat, Chriet?’
Techgoeroe Chriet Kopjes: ‘Goed hè? Dat was Jeroen Krabbai, de revolutionaire kunstchatbot, over De Sterrennacht van Van Gogh.’ ;)

Sisyphus, by Franz von Stuck

(…) Mark Ward filters thousands of pounds of plastic out of Oregon’s beaches every year.
(…) It may be that filter-cleaning sand at the beach is akin to chipping away at a mountain, and that ocean currents can undo such work in one fell swoop, yet Ward retains a positive outlook. “I know we are not the solution to ocean plastics,” he admits. But he is extracting vast amounts of plastic from beaches nonetheless.
