Ok so in my last post I made some very bold statements, I was wrong. In the last week I have found myself wanting to do things that I simply can’t do with ghost.
Ghost is cool, but it’s very new…
I want to be able to blog on my travels to and from the office and the current mobile/tablet support for Ghost is not a great experience, I miss the WordPress app for my iPhone and iPad.
I want to have some static pages, this is currently not supported.
I am moving my blog back to WordPress.
It reminds me of a statement made by Terrence McKenna who said the following:
History is ending, because the dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley. And as the inevitable chaostrophe approaches, people look for metaphors and answers. Every time a culture gets into trouble, it casts itself back into the past looking for the last sane moment it ever knew. And the last sane moment we ever knew was on the plains of Africa, 15,000 years ago, rocked in cradle of the great horned mushroom goddess before history. Before standing armies, before slavery and property, before warfare and phonetic alphabets and monotheism. Before, before, before. And this is where the future is taking us. Because the secret faith of the 20th century is not modernism. The secret faith of the 20th century is nostalgia for the archaic, nostalgia for the Paleolithic, and that gives us body piercing, abstract expressionism, surrealism, jazz, rock and roll, and Catastrophe Theory. The 20th century mind is nostalgic for the paradise that once existed on the mushroom-dotted plains of Africa, where the plant-human symbiosis occurred that pulled us out of the animal body and into the tool-using, culture-making, imagination-exploring creature that we are.
I’m scared to continue down my new path, so I am running back to what I know best.
