The Dark Fields  Meet  The Big Seal .

Recall the punchline of Tuesday afternoon's post
on the 2012 film "Travelling Salesman" —

"What am I, the farmer's daughter?"

For background from the dark fields of the republic,
see a speech last night by Iowa Senator Joni Ernst.

At the end of the 2012 film "Travelling Salesman,"
the main character holds up to the light a letter that has
at the top the presidential seal of the United States:

The camera pans down, and the character then
sees a watermark that echoes another famous seal,
from the U.S. one-dollar bill:

Lexicon

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 1:00 PM

From the final pages of the new novel
Lexicon , by Max Barry:

“… a fundamental language
of the human mind—
the tongue in which the human animal
speaks to itself at the basest level.
The machine language, in essence….”

“… the questions raised by
this underlying lexicon.
What are its words?
How many are there? ….
Can we learn to speak them?
What does it sound like
when who we are is expressed
in its most fundamental form?
Something to think about.”

       R. Lowell

The European Reflection Group report of Saturday, May 8, 2010—
"Project Europe 2030: Challenges and Opportunities" (pdf, 46 pp.)—

"All our members agree on one fundamental issue:
Europe is currently at a turning point in its history."

This journal on the same date— "A Better Story"—

"…I can imagine the decisive evolutionary beginnings of humans and societies… not in an adult version, but in the playful mentality of children…. An unlikely story? Perhaps. I am looking out for a better story."
