For the Past 8 Years, Every Day Is 9 / 11

I don't tend to mark particular events or special days, except when I am forced to do so. Certain events leave a mark so deep and profound, that one never really forgets them, except perhaps in sleep. So that every day after that, becomes something of a commemoration and reliving.

The same is true for certain insights and epiphanies that one experiences and achieves -- often after great struggle. Once experienced, there is no going back. The ideas and emotions that are set in motion by these epiphanies can lie silent and unseen, beneath the surface layers. Until something happens to change that. Hope that nothing happens.

It is difficult to imagine machines capable of being so marked by life. But I am certain that such machines will eventually come about. That won't necessarily be a good thing.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
