Really, MagJ, I shall not comment on that but listen to this spoken by a Babylonian baru, to a king of Babylon:


'He that stilleth all to rest, that pacifieth all.
By whose incantations everything is at peace.'

Babylonian magic transpired into Egypt, as noted in the Talmud. Mesopotamia is the oldest viable civilization, many Egyptian instances of magic are notable, but I need not list some of them.

The point that relates to mystical revelations such as the pyramid and it's inversion point to thousands of years of obscure but tenable beliefs. In Egypt, religion and psychic magic were not dicernly differentiated.

Layer philosophy, such as that of post Descartes searchers for certainty, have suffered an unintelligible reductive process in which the phenomenon we experience has reversed , unbound. These concepts are huge conceptual archetypes which modernity can not really eradicate, because it would consist of sacralige in what the West considers as epitomes of fallacious thought.

I literally can not try to vindicate the slicing of reality, into its early middle and modern stages, because they are cotemporanious psychic presences.

It is still early here , and I am guilty prematurely by 6 hours, but I criticise Dareley for that requirement to write, simply because the relative space time continuum does not jive with spotting the eternal presence into time zones.

There are serious reconsideration into Saint Anselm's ontological argument. Don't laugh.



Cartesian Consciousness
Reconsidered
Alison Simmons
Harvard University
© 2012 Alison Simmons
<www.philosophersimprint.org/012002/>
Descartes revolutionized our conception of the mind by
identifying consciousness as a mark of the mental: the Carte-
sian mind is essentially (and uniquely) a thinking thing, and
Cartesian thought is by its very nature conscious.1
,
2 Or so the story goes.
I do not deny the revolution story, but I want to ask what it amounts
to. In particular, I want to explore here Descartes’ rather astonishing
claim that all thought is conscious: “Nor can there be any thought in us
of which, at the very moment it is in us, we are not conscious.”3
1. See Principles I.9, AT VIII-A 7, and Second Replies, AT VII 160. In both the
text and notes, I use “AT” to abbreviate Charles Adam and Paul Tannéry, eds.,
Œuvres de Descartes, nouvelle édition (Paris: J. Vrin, 1996). Translations are
my own, but they have benefited from consulting J. Cottingham, R. Stoothoff,
D. Murdoch, and A. Kenny, trans. and eds., The Philosophical Writings of Des-
cartes (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1984–1991).
2. To say that thought is by its very nature conscious is not to say that conscious-
ness exhausts the nature of thought or even that it gets at the essence of
thought. Intellection also plays an important role in Descartes’ conception
of thought (see, e. g., Meditation 6, AT VII 78, and Principles I.48, AT VIII-A
23). The precise nature of the relationship among consciousness, intellection,
and thought is a controversial matter that I address below in Section I.B. At
the moment what matters is that Descartes commits himself to the claim that
all and only thought is conscious; hence its status as a mark, whatever else
thought may be.
3. Fourth Replies, AT VII 246; see also First Replies, AT VII 107, and Meditation
3, AT VII 49. Strictly speaking, this passage says only that occurent thoughts
are conscious. What of dispositional thoughts like standing beliefs, emotions,
and memories? I will say more about them in what follows in Section II.A,
but suffice it to say for now that they are not so much thoughts in the Carte-
sian ontology as they are potential thoughts or dispositions to have thoughts.
Thoughts proper are occurent thoughts. Why? Descartes’ substance-mode
ontology will restrict the thoughts of a mind (as it does the shapes of a body)
to those that are modifying it from moment to moment. Just as the fact that
a spherical piece of clay was cubical yesterday and may be cubical again to-
morrow doesn’t make cubicalness a property (that is, a mode) of the clay
now, so the fact that I felt a pang of regret yesterday and may again tomorrow
doesn’t make regret a property (that is, a mode) of my mind right now. Might
standing emotions, beliefs and memories be mental but not thoughts? No.
Apart from the transcendental properties that belong to all substances (e. g.,
duration), Cartesian substances have only one principal attribute of which
all of its properties are modes (Principles I.53, AT VIII-A 25). The substance-
mode ontology, then, will restrict the mind to a series of occurent (conscious)
thoughts. Thanks to an anonymous reader of the journal for pressing me to
be clearer about this point.


And Saint Anselm:

That's good to hear Meno_

My middle-eldest sister is getting married.. to a St Lucian man in St Lucia, no less.. and she always adamantly said she never would, marry a Lucian. At least she's keeping mother company in the process.

I am well.. but not getting married lol, but it is flirting season.. and has been putting a smile on my face. :)

Why not marry a man from St. Lucia?
She must have had some adverse experiences.

Anyway, love is so fragile, and harsh at the same time, and one must calibrate the place and motive with capacity and ego at the same time . And then a certain level will develop, gauging the commitment from manageable and corrective all the way to inescapably and dreadfully compelling for a lifetim-------

---------------------------------------------------------------'backtracking back to future- August 14 ~ Santa Catalina . got here me a kuli, its only a few days here. and the little tyke, Ayden his mom my daughter and my other half. I tell her look it here, already, have had a bad beginning. The hills the blue azure water dampening the severity of the summer flue. Lost two hundred amid perplexing downward spitlal , she knows little and I less. We spent many great times here, when the kids were small. It was a thrill and the vibes hit with what's like a ton of bricks
I am backtracking because it is appropriate, it is in a time past now recovered, and the minor unraveling by excessive gaming wishing upon a wish for a miracle. In addition how things seem to unravel a pecking order by preempting posts, well, that's another thing.
The Wriggley mansion on top blazing white reflecting above, Marylin Monroe spent a year here during world war 2, Natalie Wood drained in the marina. Says to Ayden, that You Store 2 is playing in the casino, seen that he says disdainfully. That means play in with him for 3 days.

Its nearly 7 pm, a balmy late afternoon, gets dark by 8. Days getting shorter. Sitting on bench watching people in between writing this, wife says stay there room is only for 2 we are 4 somehow we must sneak in. Ok I say.

Stop torturing yourself about that 200 gambling loss, some psychologist said that it is good therapy to disengage the oppressive need for money . its chronic, and she suspiciously weighs my backpack says you must have a bottle there, if it was years ago, she would have made me open it. I knew she wouldn't now, I have a pint in an un suspicious container, just say I have swim trunks and other stuff not how you travel everything and the kitchen sink. Blah blah blah.

Calls me says find Mex. Restaurant will treat - a marguarita, great I think, reward for waiting, found out they will enforce 2 guest rule so it means near night sneak in, but the bed problem only 1 queen means me sleeping on floor.
Lots of people . I'm settling down a bit, googling Mex restaurant, everything clumped into a few beachfront tourist trap. Thinking about You MagsJ, and others , here, one day I will get a real computer and post my ugly mug, but who knows I will ever get to that. The way I'm wasting the little I have, I never have enough, and now with this downturn meltdown, feeling on a precipice, downwardly mobile, making me raise it after every loss I dunno. But it's all good, life breathes through it's variable scents as the day's breezes shift.
A museum:seen it before, Laurel and Hardy played gulf here with Wrigley, who had more able guests like Ronald Reagan. It really breezes as a paradoxical fantasy, of which I have had more than a small share.

"inescapably and dreadfully compelling"
That's very Scorpio-esque.. are you one, Meno_? I can't remember if you are. I was being compelled the other day.. I might go back, for more. :romance-inlove:

Yes.. it was my bad, but met with an unnecessary response imo. Can't stand such types.. the rash and vulgar, but whom talk about Value and Nobility. Ha!

Replying out of emotion does not a good Philosopher make, but even if we initially do, it should progress into a place of reason, not remain in a state of emotion.

Good night to you, dear Meno_, as it is morning here.. albeit a very ceaseless rainy one.

Showing my grandson around the office. He is unable to sleep.
Makes you wonder how anyone can sleep with all that’s happened.
He has an inquisitive nature.
He was slightly perturbed by the cats and the crows in the reception area.
I explained, as best as I could!
He seemed to accept it.

Didn't expect to see a soul. I opened the door just in time to see the young lady slam her office door. We refer to her as 'Love'. I realise it sounds sexist to call someone Love, but she doesn't seem to mind.
"What's up with her?" I ask.
My question is disregarded. Instead, he directs his gaze at the now slammed door. "Come on, Love," he calls. He looks at me, shakes his head. "Don't ask," I am told.
"Too late, I've already asked. What was all that about?"
He ignores my question. He points at my hands. "What have you been doing?"
"Removing the graffiti, as instructed."
"All gone?"
"All apart from, ism. What's upset her?"
"You know what she's like."
"Does she know I'm here?"
"What do you think?? By the way, you just missed your grandson."
"You're kidding me."
"I told him you are a complete fool. He seemed to accept it. Go and put bard after ism."

So.. when going to tend to the cat this morning, I walked round the sofa only to find his latest kill beside it.. a small and lifeless bird.

He hasn't touched it, so I think he brought it for me.. only thing is, humans don't eat those kind of birds. It's kinda cute though. ;)

He's been acting weird again.. very needy and skulking around.

For the last couple of weeks, the peaceful morning horizon has been disrupted with sounds of house-building and motorbike revving, coming from the Lane behind.. now, I don't know if they're being made by the same person, but one of his neighbours told him to "Knock it off, with all that revving" and I couldn't help laughing v loudly at it all, as our early mornings have been consistently disrupted by house-building on the Lane, over the last few years.

Welcome to the Ends, stranger. :)

Yes.. there was a house being built prior to this one.. which is now an is, as it's been completed for a long while now.. and now this one. The building work is quite quiet, but it's the powerful machine between his legs that has been disrupting the secluded sound landscape of the Ends.

How do I know it's a he, I hear you ask? :)

Ahhh! well.. because of the cc of the bike, which sounds more 750 than 250 or even 500, I replied.

First hearing. No need for me to attend. Prior to the hearing, he pleaded guilty to assault. However, he expressed his intention to plead Not Guilty to assaulting my daughter. When the case began he changed his mind, and pleaded guilty. Sentencing has been postponed on a couple of occasions. The assailant couldn't make the original hearing, and the Courts couldn't make the second. Apparently, it will be some time in September.

Thinking about it! It could have been so much worse! He attacked the entire office staff of PCH&N when he struck me. It is fair to say, the Internal affairs department was thrown into total disarray. Files and documents were scattered in all directions. It could take several weeks to put everything back in it's correct place. Nuisance. A proper nuisance.

Brain, wanting to be up-n-active since an hour ago.. courgette-omelette n coffee being currently consumed, before completing the final hurdle that stands between a job and I.. it being the full completion of a job application, by noon.

Birds singing, but the crows are silent so far today, to be eclipsed by the house-builder arriving on his suped-up super bike.. I'm sure he's saving on fuel, and therefore money, by not mindlessly revving the engine, for all to hear how super-expensive his super bike must be. He used to build ships, you know.

Apologia: a trilogy




Part 1



All quiet on most fronts, lights out.
Good night.
A little early, that's all.
A toast for those still

awake.

To read this post , midnight confession.

Psst:


And says


Never like to build
Myself
Never
Assume too much
But gotta like
For other's
Sake
Cause the shadow just passed, few ticking passed,
Mid night

Passing shadow

Looks
And back,


Me
Believe, ships are buoyant
To reason float on slowly
Quietly flows
the Don.

never stops quietly for many a year
between you and you and you
and I, quietly unpreturbadly, unforgettingly flows unwittingly

Flows day and many a night,

No excuse,
Excuse for her to stop , she remembers after
She is gone, no kidding , she remembers but you forgot,
Every hiss convulsing
Silent foam, snaking it's way toward the open, see

Sea?

Now drink that tear as slow curling down the mable freeze that is her faced elegy, and know

Recovered your lapse,
In an eternal travail,
Of pictures taken
now together placed to elicit
Her movement and her breath ,
Slowly as she recreates the finality
of the immeasurable sense of her
Tribute , frozen

evermore in to now.
Who is she?


A woman coming to shore from a vessel
Carried you in, now crashed, and seeks finding you on island of
Dr. Moreau.

She will find you despite the change,
In your countenance,

Despite the growl
And the hiss,
The fervor
and the
Multitudes watching you groan
and try to leap
When a young
cub

Now sign say don't look long into
eye,
Of a tiger.


And way past 3

Part 2



Actually, it is all Artemis's fault.

:

: Artemis—offended that Agamemnon had killed an animal sacred to her—stilled the winds, making it impossible for Agamemnon and his armies to sail to Greece. The only way Agamemnon could gain favorable winds, Artemis decreed, was for him to sacrifice his young daughter, Iphigenia. Agamemnon did so and even gagged his daughter so that, with her last breath, she could not curse him for this deed. Her death enraged Agamemnon's wife, Queen Clytemnestra.  
.......After Artemis quickened the winds and Agamemnon sailed off to Troy, Clytemnestra never forgot what Agamemnon did. While he was fighting the Trojans, she took a lover, Aegisthus. Together, Clytemnestra and Aegisthus plotted Agamemnon's murder while he was fighting at Troy. When the Greeks at long last defeated the Trojans and Agamemnon returned home as a conquering hero, Clytemnestra murdered Agamemnon. Electra, grieving over her father's death, thirsted for revenge against her mother. Meanwhile, to save her young brother—Agamemnon's heir—from the wrath of Clytemnestra and Aegisthus, she sent him away. Years later, he returned to Mycenae with one thought on his mind: to avenge his father's death. 


That's it in a nutshell, no intent to ad homini present ILP member-Artemis

Part 3



And now it's waaaaaay past any reasonable hope for some shut eye, and trying to rid the harbinger of the washer of souls, to Artemis and his devoted Satyr, this, to show some semblance of impartiality and objectivity to feign of any form of pretence or solipsistic self indulgence:


Satyrs are creatures that work for Camp Half-Blood and go out into the world to search for demigods. While searching, they wear disguise, such as fake feet or hats that hide their horns. It is possible that the Mist cannot hide all of a satyr's features however. Many went to search for Pan, the ancient god of the Wild, until he faded. Most of those satyrs were lured to Polyphemus' Island because of the overpowering scent of the Golden Fleece during their search for Pan and then eaten. Other satyrs were attracted to other monsters for reasons unexplained.

Satyrs also worship the god Dionysus. They also seem to appreciate the goddess Artemis as she is greatly associated with nature.

Re: Three AM

Postby derleydoo » Fri Sep 13, 2019 3:00 am

We had a very nice meal. A few drinks. Too many drinks.
Ended up at PCH&N. The recent appointee is still in her office.
We should have left at that moment. Turned around. Walked out the door.
That would have been the wise thing to do.
We chose to laugh (giggle) in a childlike fashion and crack open a nice bottle of claret.
A couple of smokes and soon we were seeing things with perfect clarety. Only possible at three am.
Before long.
Can you come out here for a moment, Love?
She’s there in a flash,
Tell him, what you told me.
My Nature?
What you told me.
With, or without the flowery language?
Laughter and a smile.
Leave it all in – he’ll love all that.
I’ll try. Let me see:

"I have heard thy voice of glad surprise, of new-found happiness in the knowledge of my existence. Thou, the child of man, hast awoken to the revelation of the Heaven-born.
Thou hast tasted my delights, and wouldst fain make me thine irrevocably and for ever. Wise art thou; for in my hands are rarest gifts and treasures.
I can, if I will, crown the true lover with priceless jewels; I can reveal joys undreamed of. No matter if thy birth be humble; for where I take possession I bring my own patent of nobility. No matter if they'll be not among the wise of the earth; I have keys to unlock the most secret stores of wisdom. I have all comma and it is all for such as can build me a shrine where I may abide.
But what dost thou know of me -- of me the Heaven-born? Thou art but on the threshold, much is yet to learn. My Kingdom lies stretched out before thee, and thou wouldst forthwith take possession. Nay, already thou art in error—‘tis I must take possession of thee.
What! Shall I – the Limitless – narrow my nature till thou canst contain it? Shall I, who am of Heaven, permit that thou drag me down to earth? Shall I, the Mystery of Mysteries, be fathomed by thy scanty plumb-line?
Nay! If indeed I be desired, I, the Infinite, must absorb the finite. I must by slow degrees enlarge the narrowness of ignorance and deepen the shallowness of self-satisfaction, that I may expand uncircumscribed. I must lift up the earth-born nature to mine, which is of Heaven; I must unfold my mysteries one by one as thou art able to understand.
And thou must yield all to me. Thy dull ear must be trained to catch my low tones, for my voice is raised in clamour for none – it will be heard even as the whisper of thine own soul. Thine eye must be swift to mark my lightest gesture, for I guide by touches so subtle that in comparison the flutter of the butterfly’s wing is rough.
My nature is changeless. ‘Tis for thee to choose whether I abide or depart. If thou strive against me, I am gone, and in place of the beauteous form and glowing colouring thou thoughtest to clasp, in thy hand will be left but a heap of dust.
Yet know that here is the great, the glorious opportunity, for if thou comprehend me, I will dower thee with Eternal Bliss."

Is that it? Finished?
Yes.
Now, whilst you were – not prattling – that’s the wrong word, whilst you were talking earlier you said you were running short of the basics.
The Essentials?
Love’s essentials, that’s the one. Listen to this. Go on, Love.
You are extremely demanding.
Ooooh! Get you... Please.

"The choice is made, and thou wilt in very deed that I abide with thee; forthwith shall a shrine be built for my sojourn, the fellow-worker is assured, and together ye would lay the foundations and raise a home for me.
Show me then the plan ye have formed and the materials ye bring to execute it, that each block may be set in its fitting place.
What is the ground-work? For unless this be well and truly laid, how shall the dwelling resist the buffets of adverse fortune? – A passionate devotion to the life of another is to be the basis of all? – So far, well; none other will stand. But see to it that thy marble be perfect, neither flawed with desire for self-advancement or self-interest, nor veined with dark and dubious shades which mar its perfection of purity.
Rest content with nothing that lacks completeness. Sincerity alone can lay a sure foundation. Let thy tools be well-tempered; thy cement in due proportions. Heed not those who scoff at thy providence; they do but seek to beguile thee from thy lofty purpose. With faulty tools no lasting monuments are reared. Reck not of their scorn; these are Love’s murderers; for a pure environment is Love’s very life.
But more. To the task must be brought loving service and infinite patience – meet cornerstones of the fane. To these add large-hearted discernment, that thy materials may serve to carry out thy first design. Unwise are they who squander on the earlier stages all that should have been husbanded till the last coping-stone was duly set.
A fine balance is essential in thy dispositions, that the co-operation of they help-meet may not be at one time over-taxed, at another discouraged by thy wavering enthusiasm. Above all, for the perfecting of the fabric, ye must both bring fearlessness, the keystone of the whole – the crown of your endeavour.
So shall the Temple of Love rise fair and stately, secure on stable foundations against the tempests of misfortune – a retreat no whit less needful, in the fevered noonday of prosperity!"

Finished?
Yes.
Thank you, Love.
She returns to her office.
Whad’ya think?
What do you mean?
What she said.
Mate, I didn’t understand half of what she said.
Nor did I. But it sounded good, din nit.
Mate, keep it under your hat. You get twice what she gets.
Don’t be silly.
