Welcome to Altmountain.com

This space is for intelligent but open-minded discussion of current events.  Each writer has a different background personally and educationally, but each is also tempered with time in Nature, and time Observing what we ourselves and others do.  We talk about science, and science fiction; about History and Hysteria. We decide that geography in a sense really is the main shaper of human history, and then become convinced Grammar is even more, or gold or guns or gurus.  We decide maybe history is really unknowable and irrelevant, except that every new charlatan ideology has its own made-up history it would like you to accept. Once you accept their idea of the past,  they reckon you will accept their idea of the future.
