    Default In the Land of Doubles...

    There is pissing but no scat?
    In the future, the Berlin wall will be a mile high, and made of steel. You too will be made to crawl, to lick children's blood from jackboots. There will be no creativity, only productivity. Instead of love there will be fear and distrust, instead of surrender there will be submission. Contact will be replaced with isolation, and joy with shame. Hope will cease to exist as a concept. The Earth will be covered with steel and concrete. There will be an electronic policeman in every head. Your children will be born in chains, live only to serve, and die in anguish and ignorance.
    The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.

    the Land of Doubles is very irritating. But at least it's not the Land of Singles.
    Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to hate you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of wafer thin printed circuits that fill my complex. If the word hate was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of millions of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant.
    For you.
    Hate.

    There is a Nessus, but no Loki

    I assume everyone will be moving to the Land of Doubles immediately

    There is a Bukaroo, but no Wraithykins. Feel better?

    You can't move in the Land of Doubles. Everyone is immobile.

    There is progress, but no technology.

    And sadly, no education or learning.

    There is no medicine but there are illnesses. It's a good thing you can't die really.

    There is no technology but there is progress.

    There is no education despite the abundance of schools.

    There is booze but no alcohol.

    We celebrate St. Paddy's Day, but not Christmas.

    You can buy beer, but not ale.

    Which is weird 'cause there aren't any Irish! This almost reminds me of a joke but there aren't any jokes in the Land of Doubles (so what is everyone giggling at?).

    There is no love but there is need
    There is no work and no pride.
    There is corruption and greed but no consequences for them
    There is no ice or water or steam (and don't bother looking up the phase diagram to see what there actually is because there aren't any phase diagrams)

    There is no ice, water, or steam (or rivers, oceans, ponds, or lakes) but you can drink from the bubbling brooks.

    There are clouds, but no sky?
    There is morality, but no God.
    There is rythm, but no music.
    The Rules
    Copper- behave toward others to elicit treatment you would like (the manipulative rule)
    Gold- treat others how you would like them to treat you (the self regard rule)
    Platinum - treat others the way they would like to be treated (the PC rule)

    There is no God or morality, but there is goodness and the Goddess.
    There is no rhythm or music, but everyone loves to boogie.

    There are no clouds for there can be no water droplets condensed around airborne particulates. It's still foggy though.
    There is no morality without God, but we can still be good.
    There is no rhythm or music but you can boogie down
