Unraveling Fate: How 'Deus Ex Machina' Shapes Our Lives and Challenges Personal Responsibility
Deux Ex Machina: Originating in ancient Greek theater as a literal "God from the machine" - where gods were brought onto the stage by a machine to resolve complex plots - this concept illuminates a critical junction in our understanding of fate versus free will. It referred to the sudden appearance of a god, typically hoisted onto the stage using a machine, to resolve a seemingly unsolvable problem in the plot.
The Odyssey of Arion
In the ancient kingdom of Thalassa, known for its vast oceans, lived Arion, a young and ambitious sailor. He was betrothed to Althea, a maiden whose voice was said to calm even the fiercest storms. On the eve of their wedding, a prophecy was uttered by the Oracle: "To save Thalassa from a great calamity, Arion must venture into the heart of the Oceanus, the uncharted waters no sailor has ever returned from."
Elevating Theo: The Unseen Summits of a Dreamer's Life
Once in a quaint village, there lived a young boy named Theo. Theo had an unusual desire – he always yearned to be higher than anyone else in the room. Not taller, mind you, but physically higher. This peculiar wish led him to climb tables, beds, and eventually the towering trees in the village.
Embracing the Shadow: The Misanthrope's Mirror in Society
On a personal note, I have often displayed sometimes unwillingly, but more often willfully the traits of a common Misanthrope, and I have uncommonly realized that -- working with my crack Bot AI research team -- that I have finally found my calling in life.

Does Human Meme mean AI?
I only listened to the Rashoman/Kagemusha episode and the narration is so perfect and consistent that my brain is convinced that the voice actor is actually AI software. The actual text of the episode was a little unusual in places and Rashoman is only briefly discussed, Kagemusha not at all, and it would not surprise me if the text was also the product of artifical intellegence software. Listen for yourself and see if I'm just a crazy person.
How to be a Human Being
David Boles is pretty swell when it comes to discussing what makes us work as people. Memes are for sharing information, and he certainly helps us through understanding why we need to keep teaching and talking to each other as humans. "Be a Human Meme!" is his outcry, and I join him in that shout from the mountaintop!
