Good Morning Digital Neighbors & Friends! Happy Thursday, or as Phetasy Fame Fred likes to say, Happy Third Tuesday! Perhaps in your world it 643rd Tuesday, your counting may vary depending on when you retired and how you keep the count, either way, Happy This Day!🌞 Off to the words!
Vigintillion - A very, very large number; ten to the 63rd power I used to think billions were the biggest practical number we would have effecting life, of course now we are in the trillions. So you might ask, what does a vigintillion look like written out for us curious souls?
In long scale there are 57 more zeros added to that number. 👀 HOLY 💩
In the long scale, 1063 is called decilliard, which is commonly used in France and Germany. I just hope to be dead by the time the US national debt is this high. 😜
Immiseration - To make miserable, espy on a large scale; impoverishment
If we ever get to vigintillion budgets and debts, I suspect we have so much imaginary money and pseudo-wealth that most of the remaining member of humanity will experience profound immiseration. As Tim Pool likes to quote some sociologist "We will own nothing and be happy." I guess we will have to become embryonic adult like those in the Matrix. We generate power for the machine and we are given a simulation acceptable to our imagination and understanding. You are one happy battery with the inability to discern simulation from reality, some might say we are already in this situation for the advocates of simulation theory.
Theoretical physicist David Bohm once posed this tortuous notion: “Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends on what we look for. What we look for depends on what we think. What we think depends on what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. What we take to be true is our reality.” MY HEAD HURTS😭 back to coffee - - ☕

Thank you @MinaH for the posting by Neil Oliver, scroll down to find it. It is worth the 10 minutes it takes. I offer my feedback on on the issue of trust and forgiveness.
It used to be the thing talked about 20 years ago, do we now embrace it?
Good Morning Digital Neighbors & Frozen Friends! 7 Fahrenheit here in wintery New Melle. Nothing too long this morning, when it is this cold outside the house drops down into the low 60's and sometimes mid 50's if it lasts too long. A space heater and closed doors keeps where I inhabit a bit warmer. I have nothing to complain about except when I have to venture into the world. How about a limmerick? Most I know are far worse than this one. Enjoy! Happy Thursday Friends!
Bill's snowman was missing a snout
For carrots in shops had run out.
A sausage sufficed
But as it de-iced
Its purpose was cast into doubt!

Welcome guests and digital neighbors! I hope you enjoy your visits here. May this little spot become a haven for those who want to connect with others away from the toxicity of many sites. Locals is a great experience for me and I hope it is a good experience for you. Any community is only as good as its members, so please see the community "About" section for guidelines as to what I hope will help us enjoy our visits here.😇
Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
