Invisible Surrender

“Remember Neo, if you are not one of us, you are one of them.”

-Morpheus

Morpheus here points out that if you are a part of the Matrix, you will fight to protect your own cage.

Thus, he explains what is a sheer difference in which one outside the sleep vacuum, must oppose and consider those inside as enemies, no matter how kind or fair as people they might be:

“That makes them our enemies, Neo.”

Notice how un-moderate and radically un-ambiguous Morpheus is about this.

“It is the world pulled over your eyes,” …the safety you don’t know is a cage.

This is the essence of conservatism, and its more aptly described root: status-quo-ism. – Which is equally left as it is right. That is why moderate ‘leftists’ invariably become the more conservtive version: liberals, and then liberals always become actual conservatives in the end.

It is because the root of the original idea logically leads us back to its original premise, no matter what steps are taken apart from it; unless we take a radical shift away from that source.

In this case, the originating idea is Conservatism, the defining philosophy of the U.S. in its entire history, ruled by Robber Barons to this day.

Left-ism is the exception even with a vast majority in our country, whereas in France for instance, Left-ism is the rule.

Virtually everybody would trade an amount of their freedom for security. At least in the United States.

Not me. Not those who matter.

But most. Vast majority.

Not many people can live on edge or even with the faintest threat to their own safety.

Design Websites For Walls.

epicenterThe average connection speed Nationwide is around 9Mbps. 

The average site download is around 1Megabite. 

I remember designing sites that were an 800K download. And it was crushing people’s attention span in the 2 seconds it took for them to check their phone and leave the site.

Now? I figured out the secret of my success: I’ve been testing sites on a Wifi connection at 1.02Mbs or around thereabouts while the average is 9 TIMES FASTER. 

All my sites should load quickly as a result, though I’ve been too liberal even still with my sites holding a hefty 1.4Megabite download. Though this speed will be in 3-6 months, the new standard.

Which is too much. But the majority of my sites have been around 900K or a little more. 

Sites in the next year will be beyond 4G and entering the real 4K!

Exponential growth Kurzweil talking about is coming. In 2017 we will see HDTV Websites as a mainstream standard. Anyone not designing for Responsive 4K, very large out-of-text-and-into-speech-transition emphasizing voice, with a very 3D bent—will be crushed. 

Design 3D, design mobile–

Design for walls.

Gran Turismo marks turning point in emedia

Technology will get to the point where we are able to circumvent both programmer and developer, the point where the computer itself can randomly generate any reality as a skin. It’s already to that point in terms of actual 3D space and prefabricated objects. The question is, how many prefabricated objects become available before there too many not to be a stock photo style market product?
