From Little Acorns.

From Little Acorns Grow Might Oaks. A manifesto For Anarchy.
Roger Lewis • Speaking as a peaceful Anarchist James I would say there is rather less to fear from Anarchy than the Oligarchs and their Control syndromes and their economic wars.
We are I agree on something of a knife edge Mobilising to Mass Protest and Peaceful withdrawal of labour from the Industrial machine Is what I advocate. I also wholeheartedly encourage sovereign default on government debt Iceland has set a fantastic example that the other so called Piigs should follow. The loyalties of a government should surely be to its citizens is that not what we are taught at School?
As an anarchist( its not really a classification I like but a pigeon hole that without to much procrastination I seem to suit) it may surprise you to know that I do not believe there is any inconsistency with being an anarchist and not wanting to see what is pedalled as the Nightmare of Anarchy. Anarchy is about absolute personal liberty and we all should have a right to make our own decisions I can conceive of very sophisticated societies/communities true to Anarchist philosophy Anarchy does not preclude the notion of community even society it does however disavow the rule of Law but would not deny the Natural law , The Laws of Nature are at the end of the day the only laws to which any of us are subject and they are the spiritual laws and the Laws of God whatever our god is My God is the God of Nature and I answer to Nature and Nature alone and The creation of Nature which is the Universe and therefore my god is a Universal God.
Mighty oaks from little acorns grow
Great things may come from small beginnings.
The word acorn doesn’t come from ‘oak’ and ‘corn’, as is popularly supposed, but from the Old English ‘aecern’, meaning berry or fruit. The tree genus Acer comes from the same root.
Before oaks were mighty they were first either great, tall, sturdy or even just big. Examples of early variants of ‘mighty oaks from little acorns grow’ are found in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde, 1374,
“as an ook cometh of a litel spyr” [a spyr, or spire, is a sapling]
Thomas Fuller’s Gnomologia, 1732:
“The greatest Oaks have been little Acorns.”
and in an essay by D. Everett in The Columbian Orator, 1797:
“Large streams from little fountains flow, Tall oaks from little acorns grow.”
The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations states that ‘great oaks from little acorns grow’ is a 14th century proverb. Unfortunately, they don’t include any details to support their view.
The ‘mighty’ version is known, in the USA at least, from the middle of the 19th century. It appeared in A. B. Johnson’s The Philosophical Emperor a Political Experiment, 1841.

Mathematical Infinity and Human Destiny (By Paul Budnik)
32:40 – 4 years ago
There are two approaches to mathematical infinity. It can be seen as defining limiting cases that can never be realized or as existing in some philosophical sense. These mathematical approaches parallel approaches to meaning and value that I call absolutist and evolutionary. The absolutist sees ultimate meaning as something that exists most commonly in the form of an all powerful infinite God. The evolutionary sees life and all of a creation as an ever expanding journey with no ultimate or final goal. There is only the journey. There is no destination. This video argues for an evolutionary view in our sense of meaning and values and in our mathematical understanding. There is a deep connection between the two with profound implications for the evolution of consciousness and human destiny. Learn more at WhatWillBe.com

Infinity, Patterned Symmetry, Pythagoras, and the
Black Hole at the Edge of the UniverseR. Joseph, Ph.D.,
The long sought “grand theory of everything” must begin where there is no beginning and end where there is no ending: patterns which repeat themselves in nature and which give rise to infinite symmetry. Similar patterns are repeated from the micro-atomic to the macro-atomic, from snail shells to spiral galaxies. There is no reason to suspect these patterns end with individual galaxies. The symmetry and patterns exhibited by elementary particles, atoms, snail shells, sea shells, whirlpools, cyclones, solar systems, and spiral galaxies, should be applied to all galaxies, collectively, and to the cosmos. What these patterns have in common is they can be predicted from formulations first proposed by Pythagoras, and secondly, all orbit an eye or hole at their center. It is these same repeating patterns, within our own Hubble Length Universe which creates the illusion of expansion and acceleration as it spirals and orbits a universe-in-mass black hole. As distant galaxies come closer to this supermassive black hole, they accelerate and the light associated with those galaxies develop a red shift pattern indicative of that acceleration. However, as they accelerate they grow smaller in size, and appear to dim thereby creating the illusion they are speeding off faster and further away into the distance, when in fact they are falling into the infinity of a universe-in-mass black hole. These patterns do not end with the (known) Hubble Length Universe, but continue infinitely, giving rise to ever greater super-structures, of which the known universe is an insignificant fragment. Unifying symmetry, based on identical repeating patterns, leads not to a big bang creation event, but to an infinite universe which is eternal, and has no beginning, and no end.
