Texas Schools Receive Exact Online Threat Oregon School Did Before Shooting

A message threatening students on Austin, Texas, and nearby campuses was posted on a 4chan r9k message board on Monday afternoon.

Limitless Knowledge and Limited Time

The mechanization of time defined the scientific revolution and the Enlightenment as humanity began to see itself as nothing more than a machine with a biological clock ticking away. In the digital age that notion hasn’t changed, it’s gotten stronger and more precise with the invention of the atomic clock and the coordination of GPS technology. And as before, humanity is following suit as we think of ourselves as advanced computers rather than clocks.
