Dear Reader, having spent the past – just shy of – seven years immersed in ‘Synchromysticism’, it is my contention that ‘Synchronicity’ is in fact a language. So, it was really interesting to stumble across this video the other evening…
*You’re not wrong, Clicky… /smokes…*
Lucky us, Dear Reader 😀 Not only is it Sunday, but we have a tasty, new missive from the Okie Devil of Text US to digest, along with lunch…
I am in a moving daze.
I guess I shouldn’t be nervous about moving, but I am.
Moving day is fast approaching.
And no, your eyes are not deceiving you in that image above, nor is it taking forever to load. Getting used to “smooth stuff”, then seeing something “less smooth”, can really fuck with your perception(s), eh?
^Better Off Alone^
We get destroyed because we refuse knowledge. That’s something the following video espouses. In a world where there is loads of hidden knowledge and/or knowledge that I’m told not to seek, I’m ultimately going to get the deep-six for not being more knowledgeable.
And what about all the fucks that intentionally keep knowledge secret? I’m not talking about who you are fucking, your annual income or what your FICO score is, but these bits of information that are tucked away in secure locations specifically for the purpose of keeping people in the dark and/or retaining power for themselves and their organization(s).
Which speaking of fucking, income and FICO scores, what are the odds that there are those who know those things about me? I’m not suggesting that I’m getting laid (because I’m not), nor that I have any money (I don’t), but I do have a FICO score.
Anyway, this doc is kinda dumb, it’s all “rah rah” about something or another but I’m not sure as to what, and I had to turn it off @ 21:21.
^THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FOREVER TIME:#7 THE GOD KNOWLEDGE^
With that bullshit in mind…
Q: What is the first thing that people do with knowledge?
A: This little light of mine? I'm gonna let it shine?
Nope…straight to the bushel to hide that shit before someone tries to steal it and/or extinguish it. But before we get into copyrights and patents, franchising rights, ancillary rights, corporate espionage and all those wonderful financial perks, let’s get practical. If you suddenly know “the answer to life the universe and everything”, what in the hell are you to do with it?
It’s gonna take some time to figure that out, so burying your new found knowledge may be a matter of practicality more than anything else. After all, knowing how to melt lead isn’t really that big of a deal, especially when compared to the concept of removing melted lead from your face because some asshole dropped water into the crucible full of melted lead, which instantly caused the water to evaporate/become steam, which created an explosion that blew hot melted lead in your face.
Didn't think of that even being a possibility, did ya?
So yeah, the difference between knowledge and wisdom is…time? Application(s)? Experience(s)?
^This Little Light of Mine Lyrics : Christian Hymns with Lyrics^
Yes, the story about the melted lead + water comes from real life. One day at school, I just so happened to be standing right next to a lead-melter, when a guy walks up and drops an unmelted piece of lead into the crucible, and this unmelted piece of lead had just been washed but not dried, so it had water on it. The water immediately turned to steam, this created a huge steam-bubble in the lead, and the whole mess exploded. One guy got melted lead on his face, one of my welding gloves got hot lead all over it, another guy got it on his arm and shirt, and the ceiling was covered in lead. BTW, the ceilings in this room were about 15 feet high, so this explosion was quite energetic. Who would have ever thought that a few drops of water could explode several pounds of melted lead? What’s that? You see no correlation in knowing everything and practical application(s) and/or actualizations in a causal universe?
I’m not saying that I subscribe to all things Newtonian, but Newtonian types of physics sure as shit seem to be quite prevalent in these spaces that we occupy.
^SMF – Hahaha^
When was the last time you went to one of these?
I guess in America, there’s no real need. There’s two parties, they’re 24 hour/7 days a week affairs, and they’ll take anyone who’ll sign their forms and tow their lines.

Is church/going to church the same as attending a party?

I just wanna belong to you.

This is kinda strange…
Now, that caught my eye because I immediately empathized with being in pain and feeling like a criminal for taking medication for it. Some of the pharmacies/pharmacists here in the US used to treat me like I was a criminal for being in a pain management program. You take your prescription in to the pharmacy, they see the medication your prescription is for, their face goes cold, they have to “check and see if they have any in stock” and many times say they don’t, even when they do have your medication, then they have to do 80 checks and verifications…
it's a totally humiliating experience
I think that was the point tho’: make the process of filling certain prescriptions non-cost effective + make the patient feel like complete and total shit. Anyway, if you’re smoking grass for pain, I can empathize. But what’s all this business about “Oklebueha N.A.C.” and membership?
Rut roh!!! I get the feeling this is not about cannabis, and what in the fuck is the Cult Education Institute? Why is someone going to a doctor, to get medicine, from a church? I’m totally lost here. Is Uncle Sam not getting a cut or something? Getting grass from a doctor because it’s part of a church ritual?
^Astrix & Avalon – Moonshine^
What is really strange to me is where I started (empathy), and where I wound up (confusion). I mean, don’t most churches usually provide what you need for a particular service or sacrament or whatever.
OK…so…um…some dudes were tripping balls on peyote, and one dude gave another “permission” to “take peyote to the white man”? Yeah, I can see why some may see this “church” as being sketchy as fuck. There’s even a picture of some hand-scrawled note? Seems to me that you either got the juice, or you don’t. Can a Sioux Blessing be retracted? Surely there’s a caveat there in the event whitey gets out of control and starts acting a fool? White people are known for that kind of behavior after all.
^Saltwater (Original) by Chicane^
When I went to a Christian private school in 7th and 8th grade, one of the requirements of attending this school was that you be a member of a church and attend regularly. So in order to be in one group, you also had to be a member of another group. Lose your affiliation with one group, lose your affiliation with the other. So when my parents stopped going to church during my 8th grade year, I was in a bit of a quandary. This quandary was made even worse when my mother got a job playing the piano at a Methodist church. I started attending this church so that I could keep going to school. Problem was, there was a caveat. Ya see, this school I went to was a “Christian” school…
There was some controversy regarding whether or not my attending a Methodist church actually counted as “active attendance in a church”, and the administration actively encouraged me to find a good, wholesome Christian church to attend since my soul was in jeopardy.
^Boney M – Rasputin 2017 Blue Remix^
I know, I know, as a Baptist, once you are saved you are saved forever and ever, and your soul can never again be in jeopardy. Baptists believe that Salvation is a gift that is given freely, accepted freely, and once obtained, it cannot be lost…
but there's a catch
Ya see, if you are really saved, like for really-real all the way saved, you won’t backslide or wander off the path because a saved soul will not depart from the path of Jesus. If you are saved, you will never drink beer, and more than that you will never even have an urge to drink beer. As such, if you want to drink a beer, you may not actually be saved, and if you actually drink a beer, you are most definitely not saved and you’d better get saved before you turn into a lush. You are passively taught to constantly question your salvation, even tho you are actively taught to NEVER EVAR question your salvation.
Weird, eh? Digress
^Reeson – Anubis (original mix)^
What I’m primarily thinking about here is membership being requisite for membership. Being able to join one group only because you are a member of another group. Professionals. How the fuck do you get your foot in the door? Join a group.
Q: What organizations did Jesus belong to?
To be fair, he was number 13 (or number 1 depending on how you look at it) in a gaggle of miscreants that wandered around getting into trouble, so I guess that kinda counts as a group. Guess it only makes sense that we’d form our own groups based on that original group, and we do so in order to try and recapture that magic the original group produced. Kinda weird to think that a copycat anything would produce the same magic as an original group or original idea. In fact, it almost sounds counter-intuitive when you think about it.
^Skazi & Paranormal Attack – Opa (Official Audio)^
Ever heard of a television series called “Another Life”? Just saw someone talking about it on a forum, and they mentioned that in the very first episode of the series, there is “a male crew member on a space ship wearing stiletto heels”. They then went on to rant about producers pandering to certain viewing demographics, and I cannot help but agree that stiletto heels on a space ship seems quite impractical. I mean sure, the character Klinger on the show M*A*S*H was cross-dressing in a war zone, but that was a comedy, so it was OK. A dude wearing “women’s footware” on a spaceship in a serious drama is just…fucked up.
Wait, is this show even a drama? Does that matter?
^A normal day in Russia…^
‘Tis now Saturday morning, and I find it odd that I stumbled into a bunch of controversy last night regarding…groups. Mainly groups and the power(s) they wield. Shouldn’t be shocking tho, because isn’t that the point of groups? To wield power? Use that power against your foes?
In this case, it’s centered around some dude who may have stumbled onto a cure for cancer, and the battle that ensued as a result of this find. It would appear that there are those who aren’t real happy about their infrastructure(s) around cancer crumbling, and they also want a piece of this cancerous pie. Who in the FUCK would want a piece of cancer?
BTW, do not believe anything in that Wikipedia article, as all Wikipedia articles are fake and/or full of disinformation. That’s what I’ve been told anyway.
That’s where a lot of the controversy seems to start, and that rather dubious sounding Wikipedia page is only scratching the surface. There’s also a pretty good documentary on this dude, his practice, and what he’s been through, but I’ll let Roob add that somewhere if she so desires.
^Blastoyz – Mandala^
If you want to be somewhere, and where you currently at is not that somewhere you want to be, could it be said that your being in the one place you don’t want to be, is in fact the best starting point for you getting to where you do want to be?
That’s why I use Wikipedia articles, and have no plans to stop using them. Yes, Wikipedia itself is full of shitbirds and hacks who have their own agendas. But how is this different from anywhere else? Are you really trying to tell me that The Washington Post isn’t full of people who are on multiple payrolls? The Guardian? Pravda? China Daily? Hell, the news organizations themselves are on multiple payrolls via advertisers and special interest groups of all kinds, so why in the fuck wouldn’t their employees follow suit and rent out their services to the highest bidder(s)? Anyway, being in a bad place might sometimes help you get to where it is you want to be.
^Nicky Romero – Toulouse^
The only reason I can see groups wanting to be “the source” would be distributive in nature. You really don’t care what you are selling, you just want to be selling it. You want to be the place that people come to move merchandise, and you get a piece of everything.
If you have the product, and your customer has the cash, chances are good that an exchange will be transacted.
Q: What do people want?
A: Is "why do people want" a better question?
Maybe answering a chain of questions will give you the answer to the answer to life the universe and everything. Once you’ve arrived at your own personal “42”…
Q: Now what?
Good luck with this one.

This was going to originally be a blog post on my own blog, but circumstances have arisen to change that. I’m only mentioning this because the above may be a travesty for Roob to deal with since I didn’t write it with her in mind.
Meh, she'll tame the fuck out of it I'm sure
Good luck Roob, and God be with you in your editorial efforts.
Oh, and this is blog post #135 I’ve written for The LoL. Too bad it wasn’t #137 – the number 137 has been appearing a lot over the past week or so.
