Es skatos NBA, un 1.80 m garš spēlētājs izskatās kā punduris.

Sadzīves piezīmes. Aldaris laikam vairs neražos gaišo eilu ar zilo etiķeti. Bija labs price/performance variants, īpaši uz atlaidēm. Bet laikam neiekaroja auditoriju, jo snobi aldari nedzer un pārējiem tas 'eils' ir pa eksotisku. Toties manā piemājas latā vesels ledusskapis ir veltīts krievu alum. Iegādājos porteri "Afanasijs", kas izrādījās itin labs. Kremļa garā roka?

Katrs par sevi, un dievs/kapitāls/nāve pret visiem.

"The world is full of people who call themselves refined but are not, I declare, the least
little bit refined. I, your servant, fully believe that I myself am refined. So it is! Genuinely
refined. I was reluctant to admit it until recently…I resisted… And then one day I gave in…
Too bad!… I am all the same a little embarrassed by my refinement… What is one going to
say? Pretend? Insinuate?

A valid man of refinement, refined in terms of rectitude, of dress, of social station,
ordinarily must write at least as do M. Gide, M. Vanderem, M. Benda, M. Duhamel, Mme.
Colette, Mme. Fémina, Mme. Valéry, the “French Theater”…to delight in
nuance…Mallarmé, Bergson, Alain…to ass-ream the adjective…to Goncourtize…shit! to
ass-ream a gnat, to wax hysterical over Insignificance, to babble-on while dressed in royal
purple, to pose for the gallery, to crow into the microphones… To reveal my “favorite
records”…my conference projects…

I would be able, I myself would easily be able to become a veritable stylist, a “relevant”
academic. It’s a matter of effort, over the course of months…maybe years… It would be
accomplished…as the Spanish proverb goes: “A great deal of Vaseline, and even more
patience, the elephant ass-ream the ant.”

Yet all the same I am too well-traveled, too advanced, too jaded along the ill-advised
route of natural refinement…to turn back now, after a hard career as “a hard man amongst
hard men”! and then proceed to apply for the examination in doily-making! It is not possible!
And therein lies tragedy. How I was bound-up with emotion…through my own refinement?
Here are the facts, the circumstances…"

Kā es iedomājos robotizēto nākotni? Atbrīvojies no jebkādām cilvēku ekspluatācijas vainas sajūtas paliekām, tas būs kapitālisma zelta laikmets. Pastāvēs liela nevienlīdzība starp mēģenēs audzētu valdošo šķiru un plebejiem, kas saņems basic income, VR ierīces, vieglo narkotiku talonus u.c. bonusus, kas apslāpēs nemieru. Ražošana būs tik efektīva, ka nebūs nekādu problēmu uzturēt šo šķiru. Tehnoloģiskais progress iznīdes Ābrama reliģijas, jo jebkādas transcendences pretenzijas kļūs absurdas iepretim paša cilvēka varas manifestācijām. Šo cilvēku 'hubris' būs neizmērojams.

Sievietes rokrakstā uz rozā piezīmju lapiņas lietotā grāmatā:
"He may not say anything clever, but that's just as well. Most people are clever because they don't know how to be honest."

Vēlreiz lasu Velbeka 'Elementārdaļiņas'. To varētu nosaukt par iejūtīgu mizantropiju.
