I worked with him at CollapseNet, I considered him a mentor and a friend, and I believe he likewise thought of me as a friend. I don't usually write about deaths and such here, even Jack Layton who was a man I also greatly respected got no mention here. I don't care that Flaherty died, I'm sure it's sad for the family just as the policies imposed by the western banking cartels are sad for families. There is no sadness here, we live in a world surrounded by death powered by an infinite energy we can not identify.
My experience and time with Mike tells me there was no sadness in his death. Mike was a warrior, intent on staying on this planet until his message was heard and not one minute longer. He wanted to find the 100th monkey and with his death I believe signals he found it. Mike believed death was simply a doorway and true to form, and his word, stepped right through. Fearless.
R.I.P Mike, you will be missed.
