More’s law is a theory that seeks to explain how and why our lives are accelerating. At it’s simplest, it says that we are all caught in a race against our own mortality. French philosopher John Francois Lyotard captured the mood when he said (bad translation follows):
The human race is in the grip of the necessity of having to evacuate the solar system in 4.5 billion years.
My own contribution to the t-shirt printing industry is:
Evolution is the race against entropy.
All this is a long-winded way of saying that I’m currently trapped in my own mini vortex of working around the clock. I’m hoping normal transmission will resume shortly.
