Note: Posts at the moment are largely buying time while I work on my review of The Matrix Trilogy. I wrote a substantial amount of material last night on the concept of reality in the series, but it will take time to produce a finished review. So please be patient.
Today’s topic: The Dry Bones cartoon “Fresh Water Source”. If the thesis of the cartoon sounds unrealistic, keep in mind that Islamic terrorism and other violence does not benefit the so-called “Palestinians” except maybe to produce temporary good feelings. Shooting missiles does not put food on the table. Killing oneself does not build houses. Attacking others does not create good relations with the neighbors. Destroying useful people and items, such as greenhouses, does not create a functioning economy. All the violence has produced is self-inflicted misery and pointless deaths. I cannot discount the idea that Ḥamas and Fataḥ, who are already responsible for much “Palestinian” suffering, would do anything which would make the lives of the “Palestinians” worse.
