End Of An Oiligarchy v.11: Macondo and the magic of the Logos


{ from Peruvian artist, not yet identified, found in Cafe Macondo in Cusco, Peru }

It’s one of those weird + telling synchronicities that the Oiligarchy named its well in the Gulf “Macondo Prospect”, which happens to be “a fictional town described in Gabriel García Márquez’s novel One Hundred Years of Solitude. A town, which “grows from a tiny settlement with almost no contact with the outside world, to eventually become a large and thriving place, before a banana plantation is set up. The establishment of the banana plantation leads to Macondo’s downfall, followed by a gigantic windstorm that wipes it from the map. … The fall of Macondo comes first as a result of a four-year rainfall, which destroyed most of the town’s supplies and image. During the years following the rainfall, the town begins to empty.”

Did BP morons ( along with their D.C. and Gulf state cronies ) accidentally or unwittingly or subconsciuosly write a script to their own downfall!?? Or even stranger still, is it possible to imagine “Macondo” attached like a premeditated military code name with some unfathomable agenda !?? Could Ed Wood have come back from the grave to write a corporate script worse than Plan 9 From Outerspace for the end of the world ?!

[ Incidentally re: Plan 9, an XLt disclaimer: All characters appearing in XLterrestrials work are stranger than fictitious. Any resemblance to real dead persons, re-living or not, is purely coincidental. ]

Out of nearly 1000 active wells in the Gulf, the one named Macondo is the one which reaps calamity.

” The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.” Philip K. Dick (1928-82),  I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon, Introduction, “How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later” (1978).

“…the noosphere…no longer served as a mere passive repository of human internal information (the “Seas of Knowledge” which ancient Sumer believed in) but, due to the incredible surge of charge from our electronic signals and information-rich material therein, we have given it power to cross a vast threshold; we have, so  to speak, resurrected what Philo and other ancients called the Logos. Information has, then, become alive…” - Philip K. Dick -  Man, Android & Machine



Meanwhile… The Worst Case Scenario Keeps Getting Worse: August, Xmas, a Decade!?

Latest news, confirmed reports by Fla. Senator, oil is seeping from seabed in multiple places. Which means was it ever really about capping the riser leak??

Sen. Nelson is advising that perhaps the Pentagon take charge. Standby for things exploding and a big bill ??

And in Bloomberg news : “The ultimate worst-case scenario is that the well is never successfully plugged, said Fred Aminzadeh, a research professor at the University of Southern California’s Center for Integrated Smart Oil Fields who previously worked for Unocal Corp. That would leave the well to flow for probably more than a decade, he said in a telephone interview.”

Followed by a reassuring ; ) line:

“More likely, the relief wells will eventually succeed, though it might take longer than the three months predicted by BP, he said.”
