Despite the dark nature of this photo, I'm actually in a very good mood. I guess I'm just drawn to this kind of imagery.
I've recently updated my About page to reflect the fact that I will most likely have long periods of no activity on this site from time to time. I'm hoping that I can at least post a handful of photos every month, though. Things just get so very busy.
Here's a random thing I've been thinking about lately... What if there was a highly contagious virus that spread throughout the world, infecting nearly everyone. This virus has absolutely no side-effects, except for one:
Everyone's analytical and reasoning power slowly increases, over the course of a few years, until it becomes roughly equivalent to Einstein's.
What would the world be like? How would the world's economies be affected? What would happen to the stock exchanges around the world? Would politics become more or less corrupt? How would public policy change? How would law evolve? What would happen to TV, newspapers, and the internet? Would crime decline or rise? Would there still be homelessness and poverty? How would wealth be redistributed? Would the middle class grow or shrink? How would art change? Would people express themselves differently? How would marketing and consumerism be affected?
