Operator: Hello, you’ve reached the Rant Line.
Ebbels: So here’s what I’ve been thinking about. There are good and bad laws. With laws, I think it’s better to look at the quality than the quantity. A great number of laws can have great effect. A high number of laws can have awful effects. I think, for one, we need a lot more good laws and a lot less bad laws.
Operator: I also think it’s not that we need to inject our own angry energy into our politics. We need to actually cool it, and listen.
Ebbels: If you hear a fart, it’s all part of it too.
Operator: Yeah. We need to let the Earth have a very major vote in this race. We are already lucky we have such a big vote in her race. With that said, opposing Mother Earth is a very stupid position… majority loses.
Ebbels: I thought I was calling the Rant Line. Sounds like you need to call your own number!
Operator: Majorities don’t mean anything. The presence of anything, majority or extrapolation, in the whole, means something significant, perhaps even valiant. It’s a story of deviation, of uniqueness, but also of trajectory, of random unrandomness.
Ebbels: Life coming from almost nothing – I believe this is one of the laws of thermodynamics, which is a reasoning for life itself, right? This is already hardly believable or explainable, when looking at how it works. But, it does. Just as it is nearly certain that the universe is expanding.
Operator: Yes. A tiny grain of life can trigger incredible changes on the planet.
Ebbels: This is why I am totally fine with hope. I am fine with hope the way I am fine with you twisting and deviating your brain any which way to keep it flexible and active. This produces not just connection, but union. I’m not okay with hope when it is ignorant. Hope seeks understanding. And understanding is in the mean, in the trajectory, too. Understanding is found in the whole.
I don’t believe God is only the light, or the sun, but I don’t exactly worship the moon. I breathe with the moon, I move with the sun. And the universe is bigger than that. I’m excited to think that our highly evolved figures are wired for transgalactic communications! But it’s simple: Truth is real. And God, I feel, has a fuzzy warmth to it. Like a knowing smile.
Operator: So our politics remind us that this is humanity we all share. It, too, should feel a little warm and fuzzy. At least sometimes.
Ebbels: I’m not ranting, anymore, Operator. Thanks.
Operator: Oh, it’s nothing. Good night!
