FRANK 01:44
"free, liberal, generous" "outspoken," from Old French, franc "free (not servile); without hindrance, exempt from; sincere, genuine, open gracious, generous; worthy, noble, illustrious" from Medieval Latin francus, "free, at liberty, exempt from service," as a noun, a freeman, a Frank" "Today we have with us a group of students among america's best. to you we say we have only completed a beginning and we leave you much that is undone. there are great ideas undiscovered. breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of truths protective layers. There are places to go beyond belief. Those challenges are yours in many fields, not the least of which is space, because there lies human destiny." - Neill Armstrong

ISHMAEL 02:34
call me ishmael in a world where the white whale of our whole society is pleasure seeks gain all fame and notoriety where the image precedes the essence where polish and gloss replace the face of your predecessors where you wish to speak but stuck behind the concrete blocks of your next tweet baffled, flummoxed, loner, smokin' through the words he so sane he'll testify in a straight jacket with a birds beak cant hit delete in a culture that never sleeps like the space between the days of the age of world peace are you asking me if the soul ever sleeps? chance is then you're a slave that identifies as flesh meat check mate dead meet, tempt fate, deadly, next day text me and we'll rectify the next beat "But be this as it may, certain it is, that with the mad secret of his unabated rage bolted up and keyed in him, Ahab had purposely sailed upon the present voyage with the one, only, and all engrossing object of hunting the white whale."- Moby Dick

SMOOTH WATER 03:21
wait what are we talking about here? "he's a flat-earther" well i prefer geocentric direct realist obviously there are altitude shifts in valleys mountains n shit , however once you hit see level the earth appears to remain entirely flat as far as we know water don't adhere to the exterior of a spinning sphere that's why im sittin here it don't take a seer to see the lake from here the earth is water man and the water's clear yer filled with water too just as the spirit moved breath on the waters knew how to paint our highest groove ~ horizons level too that's cuz the waters smooth its just the devil who told you what you saw ain't true that name is dun to me cuz im ova dat geocentric direct realist up in this bitch where you at? cuz i be talkin' bout erything that's plane to see ain't no curve from a plane how its at the beach? you talkin' scientism… talkin gravity? tesla said the theory just a beggar taken for a king you ain't gotta model so why we sposedta care? don't need a model of my bowels prove da shit is there i don't need a model for my soul to know the seed don't need a model for the tree ta show the cedar from the oldest forest that'll grow to be there like a golden taurus battle call the season for the oldest chorus that we know the keys in da ignition of the star that lives within you now the reason for ambition is the part of you that gets it wow yes we know you think the earth is tilted at 23.4 degrees, spinning at 1,000 mph, orbiting our sun 93 million miles away at 66,000 mph, while the entire solar system. located in the orion spur circles the galaxy at half a million mph once every 240 million years, meanwhile the whole galaxy, which is ~5.8 quadrillion miles in diameter, moves extrargalactically to the tune of of 1.4 million miles per hour towards the constellation vega*." but… water don't adhere to the exterior of a spinning sphere that's why im sittin here it don't take a seer to see the lake from here the earth is water man and the water's clear yer filled with water too just as the spirit moved breath on the waters knew how to paint our highest groove ~ horizons level too that's cuz the waters smooth its just the devil who told you what you saw ain't true [*correction Lyra, of which Vega is the brightest star]

"they are bits of fire a few kilometers away. We could reach them if we wanted to. Or we could blot them out. The earth is the center of the universe. The sun and the stars go round it." "Do you suppose it is beyond us to produce a dual system of astronomy? The stars can be near or distant, according as we need them. Do you suppose our mathematicians are unequal to that? Have you forgotten doublethink?"

DOUBTLESS 03:36
up is up down is down roots are roots crowns a crown god willin one day roll up on the pearly gates in a white gown with all the good deeds I've done outweighin' all that shit i ain't proud until then ima roll around this den smile on my face witda normies i fit in find me at the farmer's market treatin' em like kin home is how your heart is and i'm starting to move in theres a lotta things about us some is artists some is giin but the hardest thing about it is the part that lives within its retarded to be doubtless when the doubt is creeping in cuz the part of me that doubts is the part where i dig in "Really? What about satellites? Don't we have pictures of the earth from Space?" Ever hear of the Blue Marble? "What about the ISS? There's a live feed from the ISS of the earth 24 hours a day. "Are you telling me it's all fake?"Are you kidding me? Are you saying that every astronaut that went to the moon is a fucking liar? What? NASA RASA, JAXA and every other space program in the world is in on it? How could all these people be in on it? That doesn't make any sense. You think it's all a big joke? What's the motive? Is there a motive? Everything I've been taught since I was a kid has been that we live on a spinning ball going around the sun. There's a globe in every fucking elementary classroom in America... So you think the companies that sell Globes are in on it too? Wouldn't somebody slip? How could anybody keep a secret for so long? Something that big? It doesn't make any sense. I's entirely improbable. It's an illogical proposition. How am I even supposed to entertain it? My moms asked me, "what's it matter what's the shape?" i said it boils down to havin' God up in yer place if u look at all these white coats mostly atheistic snakes and they frontin as some preachers stole the ladder from our fate (i told her) "I'm a Flat Earther Mom. I got no one to talk to. no one to relate to." "People can't even take two minutes to see their way thru" my mom said, "well there's a lotta them on Facebook." "Yeah but that's all debate though. I'm tryin' to create crew." and i get why they hesitate too people need ta make a living wage dude. can't spend two broke ass years so they can wade through the false archives of history's phase two scientistic reductive materialistic apes who reprogramed our minds to steal our own gates to this geocentric palace that was made to be a dimension for all the ways to praise truth and a garden for all the days that God has saved you until then ima roll around this den smile on my face witda normies i fit in find me at the farmer's market treatin' em like kin home is how your heart is and i'm startin' to move in theres a lotta things about us some is artists some is giin but the hardest thing about it is the part that lives within its retarded to be doubtless when the doubt is creeping in cuz the part of me that doubts is the part where i dig in X2 just keep pulling on that thread when you find something that makes sense add it to the puzzle, and keep tuggin before you know it, you'll be standin in a pile of yarn lookin in all directions with awe and wonder

the hands of god the sons of stars the moon thats crescent self-luminescent go and inspect it equinox, equator, quito, high noon, 3,300 mmiles above you, 1,037 mph the sun moves, celestial balance stationary palace immutable aftermath horizons rising fast vertical nautical vector obstacle Nye be like why can't I see Span from NYC I be like why can I see Chicago city Joshua Nowicki photo of the skyline across lake michi- gan i began to understand the land and declare that every night we stare at the revolutions about polaris how come see no parallax? and twilight barely lasts if you below the tropic of cap and the maps they made greenland bigger than africa and the antarctic treaty the only peace that's lastin' us and the living lives of challenger's seven dead astronauts the the resources mentioned by Byrd the admiral and that predictive programming showed that 9/11 would happen ya'll and the black and white checkered tile floor of Dracula and the reason a sling can take down the giant gargantuan and the fish that came in from the nets of the righteous ones and the wish off your lips is the essence of mighty tongues and the treasures of ships reappear like prodigal sons on horizontal horizons so sing me a tune not a fairy tale or a lullaby cause i'm done counting sheep and too young to let my country lie
