The Dark Side of Kurt Cobain

In an interview with the Advocate in 1992, Kurt Cobain discussed his band, gay activism, "carrying on with a Bisexual lifestyle" and his self-identification of being "Gay in spirit."
AD: Because people thought you were gay and you had gay friends, did you ever wonder if you might be gay?
KC: Yeah, absolutely. See I’ve always wanted male friends that I could be real intimate with and talk about important things with and be as affectionate with that person as I would be with a girl. Throughout my life, I’ve always been really close with girls and made friends with girls. And I’ve always been a really sickly, feminine person anyhow, so I thought I was gay for a while because I didn’t find any of the girls in my high school attractive at all. They had really awful haircuts and fucked-up attitudes. So I thought I would try to be gay for a while, but I’m just more sexually attracted to women. But I’m really glad that I found a few gay friends, because it toally saved me from becoming a monk or something.
I mean, I’m definitely gay in spirit, and I probably could be bisexual. But I’m married, and I’m more attracted to Courtney than I ever have been toward a person, so there’s no point in trying to sow my oats at this point. [Laughs] If I wouldn’t have found Courtney, I probably would have carried on with a bisexual lifestyle. But I just find her totally attractive in all ways.

Higher order reactive programming
Reactive programming can be purely static [fixed] where the data flows are set-up statically, or be dynamic [adaptive] where the data flows can change during the execution of a program.

Static vs Dynamic Data
"In computer science, a static data structure is a data structure created for an input data set which is not supposed to change within the scope of the problem. When a single element is to be added or deleted, the update of a static data structure incurs significant costs, often comparable with the construction of the data structure from scratch. In real applications, dynamic data structures are used, which allow for efficient updates when data elements are inserted or deleted."

A second programming paradigm, Object Oriented Programming, is said to be modeled after paradigms of reality. The model is similar to the real world and the idea is to have, like the name suggests, an object oriented programming language with objects that interact with each other. Similar, Objective Oriented Reactive Programming also exists. Code is a language used by programmers to communicate with machines. Could genes and genetics be similar? With language and behavior being our forms of communication and genetics our code? Fixed and adaptive qualities of behavior oppose each other but is one greater than the other or do both serve a purpose? If static [fixed] is less progressive than dynamic [adaptive] qualities, Humans like machines could be mentally, socially or genetically reprogrammed from fixed to adaptive.

Universe Within A Universe

Very interesting yet not surprising. If you study the human body you'll realize interaction at the cellular level is very similar to reality and could be considered a microcosm of our world. So it's not very surprising that the structure of the human brain is almost identical to the structure of the Universe. To take this one step further, Astrologers base their interpretations on the interaction of the Universe (Stars, Planets) to make predictions and of course to chart the interactions and personalities of humans by using the Zodiac system. The idea is that we live in a Universe, within a Universe, within a Universe.

The Lotus Flower

The Lotus has its roots in the mud,
Grows up through the deep water,
And rises to the surface.
It blooms into perfect purity and beauty in the sunlight.
It is like the mind unfolding to perfect joy and wisdom.

The Man Behind Prop 8

While [Howard F. Ahmanson Jr.] once resided in a mental institution in Kansas, he now occupies a position among the Christian right’s power pantheon as one of the movement’s most influential donors. ...“My goal is the total integration of biblical law into our lives.”

Though Ahmanson's rhetoric has softened over the years, his politics are derived from the radical Christian Reconstructionist theology of R.J. Rushdoony, a far-right theologian who advocated replacing the US Constitution with biblical law. "God's government prevails," Rushdoony wrote, "and His alternatives are clear-cut: either men and nations obey His laws, or God invokes the death penalty against them." Those eligible on Rushdoony's long list for execution included disobedient children, unchaste women, apostates, blasphemers, practitioners of witchcraft, astrologers, adulterers, and, of course, anyone who engaged in "sodomy or homosexuality."
