We are going through difficult times. First the Covid pandemic and now the war at the gates of Europe. And tomorrow? The end of the world? Are we facing a risk of escalation towards the unthinkable? What awaits us tomorrow? As if, wars are everywhere in the world, and have never stopped, but when it's here in Europe (or at least at the edge), it's the end of the world! They tend to present it like that.
The tense atmosphere of the moment brings back the scenario of a potential nuclear winter. And in the madness of men the end of humanity, even! The nuclear winter is a climatic phenomenon that could occur after nuclear bombings. As the sun no longer shows its face, the temperature drops. The dust clouds created by the particles expelled during the explosions could remain like this for years. Life on earth would be disrupted. If there is any left.
A track of mine called: Syncopated Machines In A Nuclear Winter. A kind of Avant-Garde experiment on a science fiction subject. A post apocalyptic dialogue between Machines.
About rumors.. false. I'll take a simple yet very telling example. During a conversation at home with my family a few days ago, I asked a question:
In France, during an identity check in the street, are you obliged to present an identity card to the authorities? (The law requires you to do this, understand the question).
They all said: Yes!
But the answer is: No!
Most of people think that is: Yes!
The false rumors that are spread. Nobody checks? I checked, the answer is: NO!
I see people every day taking sides and defending subjects or causes they know absolutely nothing about. They know absolutely nothing about the history of events. They know absolutely nothing about the subject. And they're out there explaining to you that this is the way it is.. and nothing else. Ok! If you want your arguments to be solid, back them up. Research and learn about it. Otherwise there is no point in debating. All this reminds me that in the past there was a debate. Two opposing sides could discuss it. We could debate! Today, if you go against the official discourse, you are part of the conspiracy mire. But what the hell? Wake up!
More today than ever: "Think for yourself! Because otherwise others will do it for you!". Beware of the news channels and their version that would be the only and authentic truth. They love to amplify situations and make them look good. They love to make audience. They love to fear you! And.. very often they misinform, voluntarily.. or not. The pandemic was very revealing in this respect.
Now imagine a country where all the national news channels tell the same version that is biased or even false. Pure lies. What is going on? You will adhere and believe this lie. You'll just believe it. You will believe the lies they are telling. But is it possible?
Not everything is white, not everything is black. In these troubled times, I think that many heads of state and other politicians, or even influential people, should be careful, both in their words and in some of their actions. It is necessary to keep restraint, and not to throw oil on the fire. We should prefer diplomacy and dialogue towards peace. Rather than threats. Because towards this demonstration of who has the biggest, the consequences of a nuclear war on the planet would be devastating. I dare to hope that this scenario is in the realm of science fiction. But in reality, the risk seems real. We are in 2022! Humanity should evolve. Nothing justifies war!
Now imagine a cyber war that would bring down the internet and networks, or that would bring them to a halt. What about cryptocurrencies? And Bitcoin Cash! No internet networks, no cryptocurrencies! Is there an alternative? Good question. Are people already thinking about this possibility? Good question!
The line between science fiction and reality sometimes seems narrow.
So.. what awaits us tomorrow?
Anyway! I'll be back tomorrow to present you a nice evolution on the work in progress of my latest Album: Electronic Patterns. The track is called "Time Reflection", and has gone from a very basic 3 minute demo to a track with many evolution probably lasting about 10 minutes. I didn't have the time to export a mix of this brand new version. For today, I leave you with the original idea, a very minimalist basic idea. See you tomorrow for the updated version. :0)
