Resistance is fertile – the world is flat an has an end – i profit from the death of the dinosaur

Downloading 2 minutes of music from the internet eliminates the energy in 500 grams of coal, which represents the compressed an fragmented existence of former life. Today, this fossil information is transformed into the infossil state of matter and stored onto hardisks, resembling the flatness of the modern world. Energy is our biggest nomadic principle, transforming into matter and back, surviving shape, system and solution. Death is the tool, life is the instrument, resolution is the melody.

The question remains: when today´s infossil noise has transformed into fossil stone again,what will it be, our energy is finally used for? Will something use our long gone lives to chat about the weather?
