Thought of the Day: Tomorrow will be spent doing a final edit on Fractalverse: Volume VI, which I will format Saturday and launch.
It's a very dark book, written entirely while Trump was in office and most of humanity careening mindlessly towards self-destruction. Trump is out, thank God; but humanity continues careening towards self-destruction.
I've come to the realization that I won't live to see anything else. While I'm alive, humanity won't get our shit together and start doing the right thing. We won't stop with the endless stupid, the endless greed, the endless warring, the endless backstabbing, game-playing, and consumption. It's not going to happen.
And so books like this one will continue to be written. I count myself as one of the few sane in this world; books like this are healthy releases, and can help others. That's what I believe, at least. Very strongly so.
Have a good evening.
