For anyone playing at home, I shared some IG Stories yesterday with photos from the recent @SouthAustralia ‘Rewards Wonder’ campaign featuring a photo from yours truly. ⠀
⠀
So, here it is.⠀
⠀
This was shot from Pugilist Hill Lookout in the ancient lands of the Flinders Ranges.⠀
⠀
The word ‘Pugilist’ is an old English term given to one who indulges in the noble art of pugilism. More commonly known as.. A Boxer. The lookout was apparently named after two station workers came to blows on top of the hill in the early 1930’s.⠀
⠀
The lookout is one of the best locations to view (and photograph) the huge Wilpena Pound (huge = over 17km long, 8km wide and heights up to 1171m above sea level). ⠀

I’ve thrown together a quick blog on why I think following and unfollowing is ruining Instagram (and social media). 💥 ⠀

It’s been over 100 years since the Wright brothers first got airborne and there are now in excess of 7,000 flights in the air at any given time. Thankfully, flying today is also the safest form of travel, which means your chances of running out of fuel and crash landing on a beach at Sólheimasandur, Iceland are kinda slim.⠀
⠀
Unfortunately this wasn’t the case for our friends from the US Navy in 1973. It was later confirmed that the pilot had simply switched over to the wrong fuel tank 💥😬⠀
⠀
Interesting fact, the worlds oldest airline is… KLM. Founded October 7th, 1919. ✈️ ⠀

In 1964, Soviet atrophysicist, Nikolai Kardashev, invented a scale for measuring a civilisations level of advancement based on their ability to harness energy from their surroundings. It’s known as the Kardashev Scale - creative. The scale has three ranks from a Type I, II and eventually a Type III civilisation.⠀
⠀
This is obviously a helpful tool should we run into some aliens and want to score them, but it can be applied to us as well.⠀
⠀
After procrastinating in the stone age for a few million years, humans raced through the Bronze and Iron ages relatively quickly. Small populations based around water and river systems developed into cities and it didn’t take long for us to discover fossil fuels. Cue the industrial revolution. Steam, electricity, global communications, solar, nuclear…. Instagram.⠀
⠀
So given our rapid rate of technological growth, are we killing it? ⠀
⠀
Nope. Not even a little.⠀
⠀
After 4.5 billions years the human race is currently ranked as (you better be sitting down) a Type 0.72 civilisation! Wtf? ⠀
⠀
Making it to Type I (planetary) requires that a civilisation has full control of their planets’ energy whereas a Type ll (stellar) civilisation can control all the energery radiated by their parent star. Think of it this way, at Type I we’ll harness and control all the energy that falls on Earth from the sun (geothermal, wind, tide etc). At Type II we’re harnessing all the energy the sun creates, period (make yourself a strong drink and google ‘Dyson Sphere’).⠀
⠀
Moving from a Type II to a Type III is where the requirements start getting genuinely insane. A Type III civilization - also called a galactic civilization - can control energy on the scale of its entire host galaxy. 🤯⠀
⠀
…and it gets even better, physicist Michio Kaku has since upped the ante by adding a fifth rank to the scale. A Type IV Civilisation. Don’t. Ask. ⠀
⠀
So back to 2018.. We’re still a lowly Type 0, but as long as we can start getting along, stop fighting and work together as a single race of humans we’re well on track to finally becoming a Type I planetary civilisation. Otherwise, we’ll just blow ourselves up and have to start again. 🌏💥 ⠀

Blind Willie Johnson. ⠀
⠀
We don’t know a lot about him but we know he wasn’t born blind. He lost his sight as a child and went on to live a simple and somewhat insignificant life before dying at the young age of 48 in 1945. He was also a gospel singer.⠀
⠀
32 years later in 1977 NASA launched the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecrafts into space. They carried records that contained greetings in 59 languages, images from around the world, natural sounds, and music from different cultures as well as instructions to play them.⠀
⠀
Song 26 was Dark Was The Night by the little known Blind Willie Johnson. 🎶⠀
⠀
Historically they’re known as the Golden Records and sending them into the deep cosmos was a milestone moment for mankind. That’s because we knew then that in one billion years time this planet will not be here, and the golden records will be the only evidence that earth ever existed and we were ever alive.⠀
⠀
Back to poor Blind Willie. He was a man with very little to his name and not much knowledge of the world around him but yet he carries the weight and legacy of the entire human species. ⠀
⠀
So we don’t know a lot about him, but one day, he might be the first and last thing ever known about us. ⠀

If you’re ever daydreaming about clouds (stay with me here), chances are they’ll be Cirrus clouds. ☁️☁️⠀
⠀
Cirrus clouds are composed of ice crystals formed from supercooled water droplets and are those classic white, thin and wispy clouds. They’re also usually floating at around 20,000ft making them a (day) dream cloud for sunrises and sunsets.⠀
⠀
Love a good Cirrus cloud 🌥⛅️🌤⠀
