Hello everyone. I have decided to put this blog into hibernation one year.
This weekend I was reflecting upon my relationship with the internet. The Left Hand Path in my opinion is the path of wisdom and knowledge. Wisdom comes from experience, and knowledge comes from the senses, both the senses and experience is grounded in nature, the concrete reality of the real world. As a tool of information the internet is useful on many levels, but it is also a source of fantasy, dishonesty and mediocrity. There is no wisdom or knowledge that comes from the internet, and because it is not grounded in the concreteness of the real world, allows most people to fly off into abstraction and fantasy.
As a medium of communication, the internet follows the well trodden path of other mediums of communication such as the bards, the printing press, radio, television, newspaper, that always seem to become corrupted by fictions and deceit. I am at the point of a personal re-orientation of my relationship with the internet in the same manner as I had with the television, which years ago I got rid of and refused to watch again.
Although I will still use the internet, there will be certain activities that I am going to stop for the moment, including blogging, whilst I work out in my mind my future relationship with this double-edged technology. I have mentioned in previous blog posts my support of Artificial Intelligence, and I would like to explore this path in relation with the internet for a while without other internet distractions.
I would like to thank everyone for their comments and reading my many posts. I wish you all well. This blog remains open for all to read, but no further posts will be made for around a year. Thank you.
