My Bio
Recently 'aegian of the FT', who is Mrs a*, was honoured by 'hard copy' publication of several comments originally published online under articles in the FT.

These appear in Before The Collapse by Cathal Haughian. www.beforethecollapse.com .

This book gathers together the informally expressed thoughts of those who can clearly see the need for change in the corporate driven, agnostic, capitalist, supposedly democratic societies of this world. This need is set to become increasingly urgent in the coming three decades; which is not all that long.

We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being. It has since emerged that we are a couple with four grown up children each of whom has contributed to this joint enterprise

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious and spends most of her time writing our journal entries, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures. We correspond with the Guardian as well as the Financial Times.

There will be no puckish, looped video 'web cam'; no 'fake' ID. If you want to see picture's, then this
Livuetta Zakalwe Remembers Darckense by aegiandyad is Mrs a*. This is a portrait after the manner of the old masters Sexton Blake Old Master Portrait, A Lady In Black by aegiandyad and this End Of Autumn Melancholy by aegiandyad was recently taken, straight from the camera.

Mr a*s portraits are vanishingly rare. Here is one mocked up from an old frame of 'film' Yesteryear's Spy Under The Magnolia, Watercolour by aegiandyad, and a much more recently taken but wildly over processed one Yesterday's Spy, A Rare Portrait Of Mr A* by aegiandyad "Now, my name isn't Harry, but names change so often in this business that I couldn't be sure there hadn't been a time when it might have been." [the REAL 'Harry Palmer'; anonymous, insolent, insubordunate spy from Burnley, as found in The IPCRESS File by Len Deighton; Penguin Books 1962]

aegian "Tech will save us" is a fundamental part of how we see our world, so it is not too outlandish to suggest that research might eventually achieve the impossible. The truth however is that ageing is the second law of thermodynamics. Biological entropy occurs across an infinite range of incomprehensibly complex nano-machines where everything is already optimised, interconnected and fine tuned. If humans aim for immortality they are faced by either cancer or they risk entering the process by which cells irreversibly stop dividing and enter a state of permanent growth arrest, without undergoing cell death, which can be brought about by unrepaired DNA damage or other cellular stresses. Cancer is immortal because its constituent cells won't stop dividing. It is hard to believe that individual cells could become immortal and still remain functional. The super wealthy feel a desperate need to believe in the elixir of life like the alchemists of old. If this newly

People are still so judgemental about those who are ill, unlucky, unemployed, disabled or single mothers. It's a hangover from Victorian times, when one mistake, one misfortune, could mean penury and death for the poor. And not just for them. Even successful business people could end up losing everything. For instance a successful seamstress married to a Master Mariner managed to save so much money that she was able to open a shop selling draperies. Unfortunately this was at the same time that the hugely popular Fenwick's department store opened in Newcastle in 1882. Almost at once the thrifty seamstress struggled and eventually lost all the capital she had invested in her store. To make matters worse her husband fell ill and lost his Master Mariner's position. His wife ended up in the Lunatic Asylum after a stroke and some time later was joined by her sick husband. They both ended up broken people, thanks to a lack of any security welfare blanket to catch the

thanks for the llama! :w00t!:

Thanks for the llama:llama::), take care:w00t: and have a wonderful week:huggle:

Thank you for Lama. We wish you well-being and creative inspiration.

I'm still reviewing old photo files to get creative with. There's plenty of work to do, and I even went out and took new photos only this week.

I also love to dig in the archives.

And surprisingly to myself, I "catch" previously unrecognized masterpieces ... :wave:
