∞.6c Mad Scientist's Notebook

What other purpose could we serve, if not war? Those pursuers of agendas other than domination have not the one drive that triggers the quantum leap: they have not the need to kill by means other that the unreliable bare hand. The two edged sword that is forged in the white heat of creativity must bare the hard edge of the anvil that technology deems a necessity for survival.
Perhaps I seek only to absolve myself of the guilt that runs through this process of titration and distillation, as if one person could have made a difference.

Still from Jonathan Weiss' The Atrocity Exhibition

Yes, I think that Albert Camus would agree with us that the universe doesn't give a shit.
And he would most definitely agree that this shouldn't be reason for us not to give a shit.
The mad scientist is perhaps alluding to our complicity in the crimes being inflicted(in our names)in the middle east and in africa and to our rationalisation that we are too small to make it happen differently.

Fades into grey
To a grey hope that oh yearns to be
Starless and bible black."
