vs those grave dinks
I forgot the fine print.
And since this is not print, I’ll add some fine text to the foolsletter here.
This is a publication of the Remarkable Fools Society.
We are a secret society.
You know, you’ve heard of all the old favourites from the secret society world:
The Knights Templar
The Skull and Bones Club
If they wanted to be secret societies, they’ve been doing a piss poor job keeping the secret. The all likely have a leak.
You likely haven’t heard as much about us.
We’re the least prestigious, most obscure of secret societies out there.
We are however essential to the universe.
You see, we here at The Remarkable Fools Society freely choose to cultivate levity.
This is kinda essential.
You know how the universe is expanding right?
Have you ever asked what makes this happen?
A lot has been written about black holes, galaxies, gravity and all of those fundamental principals of physics and stuff.
Not much has been written about levity.
Likely because levity doesn’t exist to be understood. Levity is utterly irrational. Levity exists for its own sake. Levity creates more levity.
And levity is the opposite to gravity.
Without levity, everything stops.
The universe, time, all life?
So there’s something serious about this silly little matter. In fact there’s been an increase in gravity lately. The universe is slowing down. We’re reaching a critical tipping point.
The merchants of shame, certainty, control, divisiveness and difference are slowing the expanding universe with their grave ways.
So, adding levity to the world is a bit more urgent these days. Think of it as a situation where you have to perform stand up comedy, while packing your bags for a three week trip, while hosting a wedding, while baking the wedding cake, while writing a better, updated version of Beowolf.1
In the past people became members of The Remarkable Fools Society as a matter of some absurd, nasty, slapstick filled happenstance. We quite literally ‘fell into it’.
Now? We’re a secret society that wants to be less secret, less random.
We need to expand.
Resistance may be futile.
But assistanece is fertile.
Ready to help?
Let’s create so much levity together that even emptyness feels empty
This version has a car chase.
