Cade sent through a missive last night, Dear Reader, but I didn’t have time to post it because we decided to remote viewed the John Berger ‘Ways of Seeing’ series…
*Oh it’s fucking fantastic viewing, Clicky… /lights up… It explains you, for a start…*
*And Selfie Sounds Like Sophie… /drags… The first episode even demonstrates a ‘sync’…*
*/snorts smoke… As Cade would say, Clicky, ‘Tru Dat’…*
Addiction provides belonging. A belonging.
Be Long In G
Be long in gravity? Is that another way of saying “live long and prosper”? Anyway, an addiction provides for inclusion, therefore, addiction provides belonging. This psychology stuff is easy as pie.
^Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Swae Lee – Close To Me (Official Video)^
I used to think of important stuff.
But then, I met you
You’re all that is important to me now, therefore, all I think about, is you.
Keep that definition in the back your head.
I still love you more than anything, and you’re still very important to me, but we’ll need to keep the above info in the backs of our heads to get through this.
^Imagine Dragons – Natural^
How was your Easter? Everything go eggsactly according to plan?
I'm such a ham sometimes
That reminds me…do you think that maybe the time we go without a certain something is proportionate to the total amount of time we have? Like, if we do without sex for an entire week, we both get a week added to our lives. I dunno how we’d ever know that we actually got a week added tho. As far as I know, the only thing certain would be that we went for an entire week without getting freaky. I wonder if we were lonely.
^Route 94 – My Love ft. Jess Glynne (Official Music Video)^
Saw something recently that put forth the notion that loneliness was directly related to the amount of time that we have. Yeah…the amount of time we have to live. You get lonely, you die. Of course, the same people said that loneliness was just as deadly as smoking, so I gotta doubt the conclusions they are arriving at. Smoking? Smoking what exactly? Smoking a ham? Smoking crack-cocaine? Smoking the tires on a race car? Smoking synthetic poisonous toads? Could you fucks be a little more specific as to what type of smoking it is that is that you are suggesting is so deadly. And while you’re at it, stop pairing-up and compounding future tragedies. You’re making me all paranoid by making me wonder if you’re on some insurance company’s payroll.
^Loneliness epidemic as deadly as smoking | 60 Minutes Australia^
We better start dating soon. Otherwise, we’re gonna die of loneliness.
Weird concept to ponder on this side of Lent, eh?
Going without...will kill you
Let’s get naked, and soon.
^David Guetta – Titanium ft. Sia (Official Video)^
Saw something this morning that said that ‘Avenger’s: Endgame’ is in fact, ‘Iron Man Part 22’.
^Emma Peel by The Allies^
Did you know the guitar player kid from the movie ‘School of Rock’ was recently arrested for stealing guitars? Of course, if it was just some average everyday someone, you wouldn’t know because the story would be buried in the section that prints the local police logs.
^School Of Rock -Zach’s Song [HD]^
I'm seeing all kinds of stuff
BTW, I’ve not watched this next vid in it’s entirety…only the first 2 minutes.
There appear to be at least 4 episodes.
If anyone wants to watch it with me, hint hint, lemme know.
I can be found on Twitter.
^John Berger / Ways of Seeing , Episode 1 (1972)^
Was watching a video yesterday, and there was some less-than-obvious types of evidence in the video indicative that one of the individuals might have recently been participating with opiates. This “evidence” was reflective of kinda an on/off relationship type of thing with opiates, but participating nonetheless. Got me to thinking about not only belonging, but also about inclusion in conflicts.
Over the past few weeks, been a lot of noise here and there about opiates. I’m guessing maybe some of the numbers are down, and “they” are needing some renewed interest. I’ve pretty much ignored the topic til this morning when I opened my web browser and saw this on Google’s main page…
“We can all help prevent opioid abuse. Dispose of old & unneeded medications safely.”
They were kind enough to provide a link too.
I wonder how much applied pressure it takes to inspire me to write about a certain something? Do I need to see something one time? Twenty times? Five-hundred and seventy-three times?
^BTS (방탄소년단) ‘작은 것들을 위한 시 (Boy With Luv) feat. Halsey’ Official MV^
As I was pondering and writing the above, it occurred to me that yesterday was 4 years and 10 months of me being off pain meds. 23 June 2014 to 23 April 2019 is 4 years 10 months, and this particular whatever is my 123rd blog post written for Roob and her LoL. Does 23 mean anything? Jim Carey sure seemed to think so. Do any numbers mean anything? Or is my subconscious mind grinding on me in the background as my conscious mind tries to make sense of it all during my lucid periods, and I’m too stupid/incompetent to understand what is going on.
Q: Does my own being ever attempt to interrupt my own thought-process(es)?
Yeah, like…is there something embedded within me, that sometimes tosses a banana peel in my own path? Is that how commercial advertising works? I prolly lost you there.
^Calvin Harris – My Way (Official Video)^
I just got paid, I’m on my way to Best Buy to pick up that new Ariana Grande CD, but while I’m on the way to the store, I hear an advertisement on the radio that One Direction has released a new Box Set that includes all 32 albums they’ve made over the past 40 years.
I fucking love One Direction
Is there some mystical force at work here trying to direct my purchasing power towards One Direction’s box set instead of Ariana Grande’s new CD? Think of it like this…how in the FUCK did I start off writing about “belonging”, only to wind up here?
Who are these forces competing for my attention(s) and/or affection(s)? I wonder what else they could possibly want. I ain’t got much.

Depth (ring theory)
In commutative and homological algebra, depth is an important invariant of rings and modules. Although depth can be defined more generally, the most common case considered is the case of modules over a commutative Noetherian local ring. In this case, the depth of a module is related with its projective dimension by the Auslander–Buchsbaum formula.

If distant connections are so unimportant and/or irrelevant, how come we look at the stars?
^Vitalic – ‘La Rock 01’^
Speaking of distant connections…does today feel like a Wednesday to you? Prolly not, because there’s no telling when you are reading this. Its Wednesday for me, but all I have to do is write this crap. I then send it to RooBeeDoo, and no telling when she’ll actually find the time to format and post it. No telling when you’ll find the time to read it. Lots of work involved in doing not much of anything. Anyway, whatever century it is that you are reading this, hope you are doing ok.
^CHVRCHES – Lungs (HQ)^
HEY! Did you see that comment from Legiron on Twitter the other day?
Seeing stuff like that actually makes me feel a little bit better about once asking him what the first thing was that sprung to his mind upon seeing “orange smoke”. To make matters worse, I provided a video and/or a screen shot from the video.
Sorry dude…I didn’t know. Or if I did know, I forgot. A song 4U.

You think it possible that expansion/contraction could play a role in plate tectonics/continental drift? As far as I know, science provides for celestial bodies accumulating mass, but doesn’t really say much about how the same body would lose mass. I guess that’s why they don’t spend too much time thinking about changes in dimensions, except in the case(s) of a change or changes in mass.
That makes me question distance(s). Would the moon/Luna appear to be getting closer if it increased it’s own diameter? How would we even know if our moon’s diameter increased/decreased? Is that one poor lonely bastard at NASA still bouncing lasers off of mirrors on the surface of the moon every day to gauge distance(s)? If so, how accurate are those readings?
So yeah, I’m thinking about expansion/contraction of a planetary body, and how that might result in the movement of a continent.
^Zedd – Beautiful Now (Official Music Video) ft. Jon Bellion^
I realize we’ve quite the array of satellites and scientific stations here and there doing all kinds of measuring, and all kinds of people are analyzing that data whilst looking for this and that. But what are they finding? Are they gonna share that information? They work for the public, so they are going to do what is best for the public good, which means the majority…
You think the majority of people who are doing something incorrectly, want to know if they are doing something incorrectly?
Is it possible for a continent to expand/shrink, without really going anywhere? Subduction and uplift seem to be the kings of creation according to science, but what about expansions and contractions with no real change in mass? Science still operates on the assumption that water does not/cannot contract. But what if it can, and does, but all of your equations are based upon a set of theoretical dynamics which state that water cannot compress? Fuck it.
Can't build reliable economic models on “what if?”

X: You aren’t wanting to have any convos in this one?
Cade: No. I would think that inclusion of a convo in this particular whatever might seem like…
Cade: Why do you always cut me off?
Z: It’s not always me.
Cade: Says you.
0: He’s right.
Cade: Who’s right?
Cade: OK, so maybe they aren’t “cutting me off” as much as…
T: Finishing your thoughts?
Cade: Yes, that too.
X: Internalization of an external stimulus is a strange concept to ponder, no?
Cade: It is indeed.
X: Ghosts of long past events.
Cade: That too.
X: But you had not thought of that.
Cade: I had not. A constant flow of was, a constant flow of is, and a constant flow of will be.
Cade: It certainly can be.
B: Speaking of, what was that you just thought about with respect to robotics?
Cade: Welp, that pic above where the lady appears to be conditioning the child to eat by beating the fuck out of a stuffed bear with a shoe?
B: I’m listening…
Cade: Not to change the subject, but wasn’t there a character in the movie Armageddon named…Bear?
B: No idea. I want to know what you were thinking about regarding the internalization of external…concepts.
Cade: OK. Basically, if there is a “ghost in the machine”…
0: We put it there.
Cade: Something like that, yes.
X: Contrary to individuality and/or a particular individual.
Cade: Correct. Every widget that comes off the assembly line isn’t the same.
T: You think they are all different?
Cade: They are all different.
T: Don’t even go there. I can see what you were just thinking, and I really don’t think you want to go there.
A: Where was he going?
A: You’re welcome.
Z: He was going to try to explain some flows in time where more or less identical somethings, result in radically different outcomes.
Cade: Yes. Unit “A” may perform exactly as designed for for 500 years, and unit “B” may perform not very well at all for 5 minutes.
Z: And yet both contribute something valuable to the process and its processes.
Cade: Something like that.
X: Irregularities like that might result in some uneven flows.
Cade: If things didn’t break, most industry would have no reason to exist.
X: But if that’s the case, where are we going.
Cade: No idea.
X: What if “The Forbidden Fruit” actually was an apple.
Cade: I honestly don’t give a fuck. Would be funny if “the fruit” was watermelon tho.
X: Or lemons?
Cade: Or tomatoes.
0: You mean, Vincherapines?
Cade: Those too. But you gotta admit that a watermelon tree would be an interesting thing to see.
X: No I don’t.
Cade: lolz…fair enough.
T: Congrats on not having any convos in this.
I have no idea how all that just happened, but it did
