Loved going to see old Jock Hutchison at Palnackie back in the 90s.
Hi Aangirfan,Something unrelated...I just read some recent wisdom from Henry Kissinger in the South China Morning Post:War between East and West would be bad. Very bad.I see the current situation between titanic superpowers as something at the most fundamental planes of conscious existence. A metaphysical battle between fear and love.If love wins, we can look forward to a new arms race: East and West as friends, happily competing with each other in improving the world, alleviating poverty and ignorance, greening the planet. Helping the people of the world. A beautiful thing. Heaven on Earth.But if fear wins, it will lead to total polarization and mistrust until nuclear hair triggers are tripped, maybe by a flock of seagulls near an arctic radar, maybe by an overeager AI in Mountain View or Beijing. And what would that look like?There was a recent study on the effects of a little nuclear war between Pakistan and India. It was not entirely pleasant.Now imagine an all-out nuclear conflict between the West and a Russia-China alliance.Worldwide firestorms, darkness, freezing desolation and slow death.Hell on Earth. The End.---When I saw that boy, I thought I'd died, and he, he was an angel.I had a boy one time. Of my own.I never thought I'd see a child again.I never thought that would happen to me.
