“…’If the first half of the twentieth century was the era of the technical engineers, the second half may well be the era of the social engineers’ – and the twenty-first century, I suppose, will be the era of the World Controllers, the scientific caste system and Brave New World…The older dictators fell because they could never supply their subjects with enough bread, enough circuses, enough miracles and mysteries… Under a scientific dictatorship education will really work – with the result that most men and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution. There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.”

– Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World Revisited”


I am forever grateful to Wim Hof, the ice man, who we discovered some years ago. His breath techniques have seriously strengthened my lungs and his ice baths have resulted in the body adapting to temperatures of 10-11 degrees with eqanimity. A great sense of well-being comes from his practices.

Sometime in the 70's I remember visualising our society as a dinosaur running down a slope. It has gathered momentum and finds it can't slow down. There's a cliff way up ahead. It understands it has a problem and thinks it's internal, so gets its long neck between the running legs and thrusts its head up its fundamental orifice to rectify the problem.
