My tweets

  • Thu, 13:50: The non-identity problem | Derek Parfit | EAGxOxford 2016 / something for later.
  • Thu, 15:35: When did we (humans) fall under the spell of our self-importance to the detriment of everything else? Talk about taking a wrong turn.
  • Thu, 15:40: I wonder how much plastic I've injested over the course of my life? Something else to be screened for or, in time, will give rise to long-running litigation — not by me I hasten to add; I'll be long gone.
  • Thu, 16:04: I wonder if the environmental movement, in its broadest context, would be prepared to see the end of civilization (i.e. humans) if all other sentient life was saved?
  • Thu, 16:15: New poems.
  • Thu, 18:59: Nietzsche and Zapffe: Beauty, Suffering, and the Nature of Genius
  • Thu, 19:07: I keep seeing people talk about pursuing something meaningful (What is the meaning of meaning?) but in pursuit of what? Perhaps being distracted by the banality of life.
  • Thu, 20:43: Back in the office tomorrow. First full day since 28 Feb 2020. Can't say I'm the least bit excited by the prospect.
  • Fri, 04:35: "Whenever it occurs, however it occurs, pessimism has but one effect: it introduces humility into thought. It undermines the innumerable, self-aggrandizing postures that constitute the human being." — Eugene Thacker
  • Fri, 06:49: Cold out there this morning. A rushed walk with the dogs before I head off to today's legal mayhem.
