A while back I ran into the book A conversation with God. Got a bit involved with an online community loosely associated with the subject matter.

Through that site I was introduced to some weird shit. One was a cult of what was termed the science of light and sound. No science and some really fucked up attributes for what light and sound are.

Another group was all "framed" around eastern traditions.

Get this, they charged a fee to become an initiate, when I objected the answer was give me the fee and I will burn it before us both, money is meaningless, yadda yadda; so I asked him to whip out just one of his hundred dollar bills and burn it to establish how little money meant to them and ...there was no fire.

So, isn't it all about a system, an infrastructure, that can get us all a day further down the road of understanding what to be human is?

I am, thus far, underwhelmed, even disappointed, some might say resentful by the answers the quest has yielded thus far.

I never thought I'd be taking an anti-depressant to deal with it. Cherry baby cherry. It's cheap medicine compared to what the wife is on. Sixty years without a prescription medicine and what do I roll in the pool of chance?

I can't be entirely certain our fucked up society isn't breeding exactly what it fears most. There is money to be made there.

Have you made up your mind yet which corner of the cage you will crap in?


Pedro's corner...
That just tickles in comparison to Pedro's lame insults. Call me shallow. But it seems to fit nicely with how much "the adversary" Pedro plays.

The Story of the Fur Lined Cream Pitcher.

I had two sets of grandparents that I got to grow up with. That is really lucky. A Granma and Grampa and a Nana and a Gamp. I visited my Nana and Gamp any time I was going to get another sibling. By the time my youngest sister was born my Nana was teaching me honeymoon bridge to pass the time. We had a trophy, an imaginary fur lined cream pitcher. When she let me win, she'd say that I had won the fur lined cream pitcher and when she won, she claimed the prize with glee.

Some time back there, later, while still a kid, I bought a cream pitcher and some fake fur material at a craft market, glued the fur to the inside and gave it to my Nana for Christmas. Seems as if, for as long as I can remember, she displayed it proudly like it was some creative wonder.

It sits on a shelf today in our home, where it has a different sort of worth/value?

Creative writing thread. It has been a while since I've told a story.

My Mom was a story teller..that would be a different story, her mom Nana and dad Gamp were great story tellers. They are now, the stories.

Not sure if the topic deserves it's own thread.

Russia, The USSR Didn't that stand for the United Soviet Socialist Republic?

And China, The People's Republic of China.

"And to the Republic for which it Stands...."

This is an other one of those posts you just wanna keep handy to reflect upon, a gem.

The war is now fully on, virtually all Constitutionalist sites are being deleted or else blocked, the bandwidth lowered by a factor 100 or 1000. I notice my access to my own threads here is virtually nonexistent. I have to wait about 15 minutes before a page loads, no matter the device or connection Im on. Im sure the site is at risk. Please make a backup just in case.


For one the exaggerated sense of time.

Where else have we experienced such distortions within the continuum?

My gripe with how economics are run go way back to when I was practicing illustration. I did a series of illustrations of birds you might find at a bird feeder. I performed the illustrations as a free lancer so the copyright for the illustrations remained in my possession, I wasn't performing as someone's employeee. The rights of reproduction were never contracted for nor transferred in any way. They used the illustrations for 7 years, printing hundreds of thousands of reproductions. I got taken. But I do get the satisfaction of running across one of my illustrations on the back of a bird feeder box on a store shelf to this day.

So yeah, I will admit to some resentment regarding how the system functions.

I did some consulting for Banta Digital. They had two systems that didn't interface and they were spending thousands of dollars a day in labor to work around the problem. I had previously read a white paper on postscript printer description files and as postscript was a text based language I could make some sense of it. The PPD files were text based, and all I had to do was rename the file with a txt extension edit them in a word processor, define an output size that was equal to the other system, save the file with a PPD extension and the problem of the systems interfacing was moot. Took me four hours and literally saved the company millions. They got the millions and I get to tell the story.

I realize now that isn't a problem with capitalism that it is a problem with how it is practiced and what it encourages. One a theory the other an implementation and endorsement. Intellectual property, not a claim on land or one of earths resources or a means of production, rather it was the result.

So yeah, you live to be sixty, and participate in the system, you're going to have similar experiences of getting fucked. That will teach you money isn't everything.

I've worked for the man and worked for myself and got fucked both ways. I ain't lying, It is was I believe. Reality/Truth who is to know? Me or we? Someone else did write that white paper. They likely earned it more then I.

Man it seems the only place.

Thinking how Dr. Xie characterized her feelings. aw-woe-man-wow.

I just can't see a higher intelligence setting us all up for this. It has got to be random change that is at the root of this. Like PI can never be solved. It's like a cosmic metaphor for fucks sake, you will never understand, you are condemned to its good enough for now, get use to it, 360 isn't even a fraction of it.

This board is fucked up. Oppressive. It's like this mono culture represses the other.

Corn, beans and squash. That is a natural metaphor.

If you can dig it, you've likely gotten dirt under your nails. A hand that can't grow a thing is a waste of a limb on a tree. A dead branch.

I'll be winding down here. So don't be offended if I don't respond.

My thinking is not getting honed here, I'm not being exposed to new and innovative thought. It's a wall of the same old same old, odd extremes.

Sadly, what I have learned here is how to be a prick, I've gotten good at it so thank you to all the enablers of that;I have had some 'good?' teachers.

Lacking moderation. There is little similarity in behavior to the registration agreement. Not in principal not in practice.
No, I don't trust anyone here to self moderate, haven't seen any evidence of it.

Who ever wishes to take credit, may. I pay homage to the general population here, in this regard.

If I could place a warning beacon in cyber space regarding this site, to those approaching, I would.
