We are in Fillmore, Utah

June 7

From Gary:

Drove maybe 14 hours yesterday from Winnemucca Nevada, to Fillmore Utah..

We crossed the Bonneville salt flats, which was mind boggling, vast, dry, hot, featureless white, with nothing but a highway to look at, and the mountains in the distance…

Occasionally one would see a salt plant… and think about the early Mormons deciding to locate near the Earth’s best supply of salt…
Now being shipped out by the train loads without making a scratch in the amount…

Salt Lake city was a nightmare. Another industrialized and urbanized eyesore on what was once a beautiful scene…

It was at least three times bigger than my last visit 30 years ago. Vast networks of six and eight lane freeways, filled with rude drivers in their vanity-mobiles… It took me probably two hours to get through it, and out into the countryside to the south… And my thoughts were on how ugly humanity creates its cities.. lacking all harmony with anything, except maybe a landfill style of architectural theme…

I liked the US better when the Indians were stewards…

Utah is strange, a multi-million dollar port of entry coming in, trying to control and tax everything possible, made California’s entry check points look third world…

There were these constant signs warning drowsy drivers, but no rest stops in hundreds of miles. So far the only “official” rest stops are truck stops with no shade, while the residents of the towns had trees around their houses.. Strange logic to me… To see beautiful mountains from hundreds of miles of cattle fenced freeways, and no way for anyone to even stop and rest… It told me these people lack imagination.. I would have done some scenic loops with camp sites etc., all along the way, ¬†and presented an attitude of hospitality…

What we have instead, is an industrial wasteland created by the love of money and excessive materialism..

I saw whole mountains being denuded of trees to create cattle pastures.. scars on the land… And I imagined Aliens arriving to use disruptors from space to erase all the constructs of humanity as a beautification project.. turn it all into dust, and let the wind fill the scars..

We have a culture based entirely on fossil fuels and personal vanity, and traveling through it in the anachronism that is an army truck, punctuated the insanity of it all in my mind…

I have no problem with 45 miles an hour and being passed by trucks and RV’s as if I were standing still, but it does remind me of the Taoist saying that hunting and racing madden the mind….

Personally I think it will all come to an end soon… the demise of the petro dollar status will likely be the beginning of the end of one insanity, and that the people of America will become belligerent, and willing to nuke anybody to keep up their lifestyle of lunacy…

Entitled arrogance…

Anyway the M-35 ran good, slow but sure.. and today will be a shorter day of travel and get us off of the freeways at its end..

It will be a relief to get away from the sprawl and contaminated landscapes…

And I was thinking how this all was based on unnecessary technology and eventually would be superseded by a culture that flew with anti-gravity and free energy, and had no need to cover the landscape with cement and factories…

For now we are being retarded by a status quo.. kept from going forward so we can be economically milked by the few greed heads of insanity…

Normalcy is a mass psychosis…

And it can only be changed one person at a time, by not buying into it anymore…
