In other words, the theory of toppling dominoes is not simple and cannot be reduced to the straightforward application of the conservation laws of energy and angular momentum. The discussion involves two aspects: the tumbling motion and the collisions. The ﬁrst to realize that the domino effect is a collective phenomenon was D. E. Shaw. He noted that the dominoes lean on each other after collision. Consequently the collision of dominoes is fully inelastic and this is the main source of energy losses during the process. It is tempting to invoke conservation of angular momentum at the collision, but this does not apply, since colliding dominoes topple around different axes. How does it feel to be someone who hates paradise? What do I think of Niklas Luhmann? I am steeped in alias. Grease. We are together in this world. We are beyond recognition. I say to myself, Slide your ponder to the tip of the branch. Mushroom your flip into scent and sensation. On the pools and illusions as the dimming light sweetens the distance and. In the film, a “man” and a “woman” are represented by playmobil-like avatars. And yet, Meillassoux makes it difficult to see this in After Finitude because although he believes human reason is capable of accessing the absolute what we uncover through this access is surcontingence. Hello, Mr. Pythagorean Sunflower. Brr brrrrrr, hello honey this is cinema. And I heard my Coleridge say, “I am the patron saint of everyone who died before you.” She does not remember any oranges. You are not weirdly misbeautiful like The Sun. In the beginning there was nothing and it has been getting steadily worse ever since. How is this possible? Rhinestones are glued to cheeks, crystals stuck beneath eyebrows to double them. High-energy X-rays and a new data extraction protocol allowed the researchers to reconstruct the backbones of the 360 million year old fossils in exceptional detail and shed new light on how the first vertebrates moved from water onto land. Swivillization and its bearings grinding — listen. Pissing in the toilet instead of on it — is correct. And thus, in agèd accents, a stranger in the audience asks: “to slinky-dink at all — Blip unto the Blap Blap.” <<I think that tree was trying to tell me something. I ::know:: that bird was.>> I read in The Guardian that the center of the universe smells [tastes] of raspberries and rum. Have you seen the Wingèd Duracell of Samothrace? Closer to home, for about 48 hours there was a new Bab al-Shams. This is not Instagram; I taped up my shattered phone. Where the transparent tape peels off is where this happens: a molecular transmission of air, snow, structure, body, doorway, body, snow. I myself don’t know how to live but I know that it is important to veer, and keep veering, until you, until you, just as the lining of the universe is torn in places and a violet light comes through.
