“Machine and market” study for oil on cotton rag paper.
 

Transhumanism not to be confused, as intended, with transhumance, the semi-nomadic life style of land stewardship in place on the planet for hundreds of thousands of years before Pharoah came up with his bright idea; but, should be confused with the vampirism scribbled into existence  by the ritual  that created first British corporation and the mechanical bride.

Robot sex?  Is humanoid machinery clanking together in the garden kinetic sculpture; is it art? Is there a difference between clever and intelligent? Is that art?

“Al Qaeda-linked militants justified their takeover of a strategic opposition-held town near the Syrian border with Turkey by accusing the Syrian rebels who held it of being pro-democracy traitors who co-operated with Western officials like U.S. Sen. John McCain.
