Truly amaze me ... they possess the super-human
strength to birth a child - one of the most painful

Where the stars shining bright

With frost blade flanks

From mouth and nose steam

In the clear silence

White untrodden snows

Nature's frozen pulse

Sleep like a little baby

One gracious moon

After the night the...

The problem of military reactions
to territorial control issues
is not merely that violence breeds further strategic development
of violence,
although this is no small,
nor amoral, 
concern.

This primal problem of militarism by historic default
is that it is an intrinsically...

Numerals and letters share sacred iconic human-intelligence root systems

and LeftBrain patriarchal Yang...

An old Greek word, ecclesia,

In Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"
