Talking the walk

During tonight’s walk, checking out new construction in a hilltop subdivision (well, in Alabama they call them mountains if they’re over 200 feet higher than surrounding soybean fields, so let’s call it Little Mountain Estates), the phrases “Peter Principle” and “The Singularity” combined in my thoughts.


That the singularity already happened.

The rest of what people hope for is to improve themselves magically through technology, overcoming their Peter Principle tendencies in the social hierarchy of life.

Time to chuck that concept out with yesterday’s recyclables.
