Peter headed for McGregor's garden in spite of Mother's warnings: "Don't go into McGregor's garden. Your father had an accident there and McGregor put him into a pie." His anger grew as he lolloped swiftly on, revenge on his mind.
Cleverer than his father, he'd often visited McGregor's garden and never even been seen. Lettuces and carrots regularly disappeared: McGregor was incensed. Peter's plan crystalised as he reached the wire.
He headed for the rake near the cold-frame, knocked it over and nosed it into position on the path, knowing McGregor would only have eyes for his lettuce-patch. Then he hid under some sacks.
Peter heard the kitchen door: he waited. When he heard the crack and curse as McGregor trod on the rake, he leapt out onto the path. McGregor, eyes watering, rubbing his nose, couldn't believe his luck. Whirling the rake, he charged. Peter held his ground, then rushed at McGregor's feet. His timing was perfect: M
Soylent Green got me thinking...Last week I made the dubious decision to watch the classic film Soylent Green. Unlike most science fiction, which becomes dated in a few years, Soylent Green has only become more relevant—and more urgent. Sure, the hairstyles and film techniques are distinctly '70s, but the content of the film is more agonizingly prophetic than ever.

Set in the year 2022, Soylent Green (based on Harry Harrison's novel Make Room, Make Room) is about a futuristic world in which the squandering of Earth's resources, the burning of fossil fuels, uncontrolled overpopulation, destruction of the forests, pollution, and urban sprawl have turned the world into a living death. Baked and stifled by the greenhouse effect, starving from lack of food, people have no privacy, no hope, no physical comfort, and no future. The world is choking itself to death.
When I first saw Soylent Green in the 1990s, when it was over I rushed to the window, took a deep breath, and reassured myself that it was
The Theory of Relativity of Social ConstructsIn 1905, Albert Einstein revolutionized our understanding of space and time when he published his "Special Theory of Relativity" with it's well known axiom E=mc2. While few truly have a deep understanding of the meaning of it, most people know the formula, and a fairly decent number have a basic understanding of what the formula means. Simply put, E is energy, m is mass, and c2 is the speed of light squared. And the entire formula can, in one way, be described as saying "Energy cannot be created or destoryed, merely changed in form".

One might wonder what any of this has to do with Social Constructs... well, it all arises from a thought I had. Just like the E (energy) in Einstein's equation, P (for Power ie: political or governmental power) cannot be creatred or destroyed, merely changed in form or redistributed.
Taking that as true, one could try to determine some form of equation to desribe this... I like to think of it so: P=G$ or to put it in easier to understand terms..
