CLICK5: Oiler Spoiler…
Missive From ‘Merica: Sky High Thinking
Why is it, Dear Reader, that high-profile scientists in the Mainstream Media sound more like preachers?
*Exactly, Clicky. It does my head in…*
*Why’d they do it, Clicky?*
*Ah, wealth and power and fame, of course…*
*Another Unelected Flying Official fond of preaching…*
… Cade Fon Apollyon, who is not a scientist, has never claimed to be a scientist and certainly doesn’t have any money, power or fame, but asks a ton of pertinent questions and makes astute observations, has sent through a missive for us, dealing with the subject of UFOs.
Well, hello there.
How is your world treating you? I have no idea what your answer might be, but for the sake of a happy and joyous world, let’s pretend you are doing well.
Let’s start off with some math, yeah?
5 has 7 base components, not 5.
1 1 1 1 1 = 6
The 5 individual parts, and the sum of its parts = 1.
But there’s a hidden seventh property there that most may not take into account…0.
When something is, nothing leaves.
Something, displaces, nothing.
If that nothing does not exist, neither can something. There’s nowhere for the something to go.
Q: Does this mean that there is not 1 “nowhere” or “nothing”, but 2? Maybe even 3? Maybe more?
This gets me to thinking about the concept of “possibility”, and also the concept(s) of “possibility” over time. Why a something cannot exist at one point in time, but for some reason can exist at another point in time. Or maybe why a something could exist at some point, but for some reason can no longer exist. How things line up in such a way that time either allows or prevents a something from existing. I really need to ask another question here…
Q: Is it possible that the tumblers of time turn in such a way that allows or prevents certain things from being known?
A: Pretty far out thought, eh?
Albert Einstein is famous for many things, but one of those things is said to be a statement he made whilst on a walk with a student named Esther Salaman…
“I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details.“
– Albert Einstein
I want to know...His...thoughts.
Welp, what if (regarding what Einstein wanted to know) God hasn’t thunk those thoughts yet? Or what if God thunk them so long ago, that even God has forgotten what in the hell they were thinking? Or at least, the thoughts are so old that it takes a bit to pull the information up in the databanks, which in “God terms” is about 538 average human lifetimes? Al may not be around long enough to get the answer(s) he seeks. Or maybe God and Al just weren’t on the same wavelengths at the same time(s). On different timelines, and as such, they just flat couldn’t understand each other.
This is where my Monday started…
After watching, I realized I’ve seen this video before, but this is prolly the best quality video I’ve seen of it. Kinda strange that the object appears black for most of the vid, but the silver can be seen on the top left of the object as the airplane moves past and the object moves out of view. Looks like a balloon to me, so, I stated as much.
More than that, I started doing some digging to see if I could see what the average high-altitude wind speeds are like down in Colombia, and I found something really REALLY interesting.
(BTW, don't you just absolutely love intensifiers? Aren't they really REALLY cool?)
Seasonal precipitation patterns along pathways of South American low-level jets and aerial rivers
In that document, I saw reference to the afforementioned “really REALLY interesting” something.
Biotic pump of atmospheric moisture as driver of the hydrological cycle on land
BiPAM...Biotic Pump of Atmospheric Moisture.
Now, where my mind was when watching the UFO video above was thinking about the multiple dimensions of time that exist in a high-altitude environment as the winds move, shift and shear. But what that BiPAM thing got me to thinking about was something I hadn’t given a whole lot of thought to regarding why air moves…displacement.
Moisture moves in, air moves out.
Moisture moves out, air moves in.
Typically, convective activity is thought of as being the primary driver as to why air(s) move. Warm air rises, cool air descends, and when the two tangle, there’s all kinds of eddys and other crazy movement(s) of air in the sky. But what we’re talking about here is the movement generated when one gas displaces another gas. Liquid water evaporates, and as it rises, it displaces gases in the atmosphere causing the atmosphere to move.
Something else that caught my eye in the tweet/tweet comments was the vagary of the alleged place of occurrence…Colombia. The name, Colombia, is potentially vague.
Colombia, Nuevo León
Colombia (Madrid Metro)
If one takes homophones into consideration, and also considers bad spelling, it gets even more muddy.
Seems nitpicky, yeah?
Welp, your opposition is gonna be nitpicky as fuck. They are gonna slice and dice and nitpick the living shit out of anything and everything, so, why are you not nitpicky on yourself? Maybe think of it like training for a marathon or something. If you are nitpicky on your own shiz, others are gonna be nitpicky for you. And you don’t want that, now do ya?
Do you have any idea what “roll-rate” is? Me either. I think it has something to do with how many doobies a fella or lady can roll in an hour. But in the event I’m wrong about that, lets see if there are any aircraft out there other than the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, Northrop T-38 Talon, Extra 300 or Sukhoi Su-31 that can achieve a roll-rate @ or above 720° per second.
Oh, and in this video that follows, pay particular attention to the aircraft just after take-off when he starts rolling the plane. See if you can count the number of rotations whilst watching the timer on the video to see how many times he’s rolling per second.
One thousand one.
Just to give an idea of what a 720° roll-rate means, that means by the time you read that, two full revolutions occurred. That’s pretty fucking fast. Doing two complete revolutions in a single second?
I flew an aerobatic plane that had close to 360° per second when rolling in the direction of the propeller spin, and about 270° per second when rolling against the propeller spin…not as fast as the planes above, but still pretty fast. Especially when it’s your ass that is actually strapped in the plane.
I’ll not go into the dynamics of why a plane might roll faster with the prop rotation rather than against, but you are likely wondering why in the hell I’m talking about roll rate. Welp, if you just so happened to read that tweet above about the UFO sighted from the cockpit, and then you watched the video that I posted in response showing an airplane passing near a weather balloon and what the encounter looked like from the perspective of the balloon, you might just notice that the gondola thing hanging off the balloon which carries the camera, is spinning. In one shot, you see the plane approaching, the camera turns and the airplane leaves the frame as it roars the fuck by, and a few seconds elapse until the airplane comes back into frame and it is already well downrange.
The question that I asked myself is, can we interpolate as to how far the airplane is away from the balloon when we first start to hear it, and how much distance the airplane covers between the time that it leaves the view/returns to the view. At this point, you may be asking yourself a question…
Q: DUDE!!! Why in the FUCK do you care how much distance is covered by the plane when it is out of view?!?!? The fucking video has the speed of the aircraft right the hell on the video screen!!!!!
A: Oh rly?
Lemme ask you a question…
Q: Is that readout of the aircraft speed groundspeed? Airspeed? Indicated? Actual? Calibrated? True? Is it radar data? GPS data? From the aircraft? From a ground station? From some 3rd party estimation? Is it an amalgamation/average of multiple sources? If so, which?
Was the video creator able to get telemetry data from some flight following service, and if so, what does that 402kts/462mph @ 38,000 feet really mean?
Speed over the ground <> speed through the air.
Speed through the air <> actual speed through the air
140kts @ 5,000 feet MSL <> 140kts @ 35,000 feet MSL
Why Are True Airspeed And Indicated Airspeed Different?
We are afterall talking about things which are moving relative to each other. The balloon is moving between 30 and 40+ miles per hour relative to an airplane that is moving 400+ miles per hour, both objects are subject to the wind(s) but not necessarily the same exact winds, so in order to better understand how and why things move as they do, we need to at least somewhat understand these environments that they are moving in.
One last thought on that, our atmosphere is basically a planet in and of itself that is surrounding and circling another planet made of rock/dirt/water/etc.. Like water, air is a fluid, and its movement can be janky af and moving all kinds of different directions in a relatively small space. An object, subject to the wind (like a balloon) may make a sudden and erratic appearing move because of some something in the atmosphere acting upon it. An updraft, a downdraft, some swirling eddy or vortex of air where cool and warm air have suddenly met up and decided to tango, some mass of invisible moisture moving through, no telling what is actually going on in that space around our object.
Also, I think it important to point out that unless a UFO or extraterrestrial craft is somehow suspending the laws of physics at all times and at all attitudes and at all altitudes, I think it highly likely that high-altitude UFOs are likely to behave differently than low-altitude UFOs if for no other reasons than the density or the air and/or how the wind currents change as altitude changes. A craft suddenly going mach 20 at a coupla thousand feet or below is prolly gonna start generating lightning bolts, thunder, then instantly burst into flames because of the friction with the air, but at high-altitudes it might take a few before it started to glow and then eventually burst into flames.
Just some stuff to think about is all.
You will have had to have watched the preceding video in order to somewhat understand the references above.
Delta-winged aircraft notwithstanding, I’ve been under the impression for quite some time that triangle-shaped and/or “pyramid” shaped UFOs were quite commonplace. Cigar, saucer, triangle, and on very rare occasions, globular…that’s pretty much it as far as UFO shapes go. There’s that new-ish “tic tac” thing, but even that is still pretty much cigar shaped.
So yeah, new nomenclature on an existing something.
UFO sightings have jumped during the last year…probably because of the pandemic?
Um…the previous video opened with that statement, and they did so with some embedded type of knowing as if one explained the other. People don’t look up even when they are allowed to go outside. How in the hell do they figure people are now looking up when they are unlikely to even go outside or when they can’t go outside, and are especially unlikely to go outside during those times when UFOs are most likely to be seen; i.e. night.
I'm gonna be scratching my head on that one for a while.
UFO sightings have jumped during the last year, probably because of the pandemic. I honestly do not see what one has to do with the other. ‘Cept maybe people are bored at home and just making shit up since they don’t have anything better to do.
Or of course a concerted effort on the part of certain interests in order to provide a distraction or diversion from um…other stuff.
A drop of blood leaves your heart.
It then heads to your anus, circles your anus, then returns to your heart.
Your heart smells like ass.
Or, fart...your heart smells like fart.
On the upside, your downside smells like heart.
All you witchy and warlocky and other mystical types need feedback I imagine. You need to gather intelligence to ensure that your spells, hexes, curses, blessings, etc. work, right?
Is that what crystal balls, familiars and the like are for? Gathering intelligence? Or do you rely solely upon human intelligence from colleagues, customers, patrons, toadies, etc., and basically have your own spy networks. And whilst we are entertaining goofy questions, what happens in the event of a misfire, stray round, bad intelligence/coordinates or even a some defect in the payload?
You prolly have some token from the target, a book or shirt or lock of hair or used snot rag or whatever, you fire off your spell, but what if there is some unseen dynamic that causes the spell to go completely off course and nail someone unintended. Some bystander gets whacked with 7 years bad luck, or their dick falls off, get cervical cancer, go blind, hair falls out, lose their job, a piano falls on them, their plane crashes or whatever…do you just chalk it up to “well, I missed the target, but the person that got zapped was probably guilty of something, so, meh, no biggie.”?
Guessing that you now need to fire off another round since you missed the target the first time.
Ever heard of carpet bombing? Might look into that. It’s messy as fuck, unlikely you’ll actually hit the target unless you get lucky, but you’ll possibly at least take out something that was important to the target. Maybe something they cared about. The downside is tho, now you’ve got a war on your hands.
Something really weird about witchcraft is that I don’t recall ever hearing about something like “an all-hearing ear”, or “all smelling-nose” or “all-touching finger”, or even an “all-thinking brain”. Sure the “all-seeing eye” is quite famous, but why doesn’t that thing come with some headphones so ye can hear what’s being said. Or at least come with some subtitles functionality. Watching a silent movie ain’t gonna do you much good unless you’re just looking for craters in a post action photo-reconnaissance/bomb damage assessment kind of way. Prior to action, just seems like you’d want more than “sight” based things in order to more accurately carry out your mission. If you aren’t the best at lip reading, you might have a really clever target mouthing “elephant stew” over and over again to throw you off. And also, we’re currently living in a time when face-masks are all the rage, so how the hell you gonna know what your target is saying?
Another thing that I wonder is how exactly is it that “witchcraft” figures it can remain more or less neutral, as if it is somehow outside the bounds of anyone and anything else. It could be argued that witchcraft is basically the equivalent of a weapons manufacturer, you sell your shit to warring parties, they shoot the shit out of each other, and you do have at least some culpability. But in witchcraft, the practitioner takes more of an active role in the delivery of these weapons. Kinda like a weapons manufacture that is also a mercenary/soldier for hire. Sure you have no ideological attachments to this specific conflict, but you are participating in it. Which, that brings up one of another two points I just thought of.
1 – you actually do have a vested interest in the conflict. You have a vested interest in all conflicts, otherwise, you wouldn’t be practicing the arts you are. There is some reason and/or reasons as to why you are hiring out your services
2 – where is the oversight regarding your actions? Surely even the most practiced and senior of magical types, themselves, have a someone that is senior to them. I don’t give a shit if you have to stumble through the list of every angel, demon, imp, god, goddess or other deity both known and unknown …you… answer to someone. So, who is it, and how far to the allow you to stray before they give you a smack? Or I guess in some cases, the further you stray, the greater your reward might be.
Sure…I get it…your weapons have peaceful and practical applications too. Humanitarian types of stuff. Stuff that is beautiful or uplifing. I guess this is how you justify the art. You figure that you somehow remain more or less being beyond prosecution for your role(s) in conflict that results in damages/loss. Prolly why persecution of witches or practitioners of magic/magick/majick or whatever is so prevalent throughout history. Nobody likes someone else having all that power. They want it for themselves. Eliminate the middlemen / middlewomen / middlewhomever, and nothing stands in the way of your getting everything for yourself.
Q: Is this why supernatural folk or supernatural entities or whatever always seem to hang their hats way the fuck out in the fringes?
A: ó?¿? ó
Swamps, caves, gnarly parts of some gloomy forest, high places, low places, dangerous place, anything remote as fuck and/or hella difficult to get to.
Any idea why, The Pope, of all people, would be for… a totalitarian regime?
Would be for… systems, infrastructures and procedures that would lead to a one-world government?
Would be for… anything that put all power into the hands of a single entity?
Yeah, I can't figure it out either.
I’m completely baffled. Nothing at all indicating any leanings towards any such thing. I’m stumped.
Maybe you can figure it out.
You Ufologists are gonna be in deep shit when and if personal automated aerial-vehicle transport becomes a thing. Imagine a good chunk of current automotive traffic suddenly filling the skies because everyone has traded in their cars for some air-transport something.
lolz...what a mess.
You UFO chasers will never see another UFO ever again. Not a “real” one anyway.

Adventures in Remote Viewing: An Invitation For Reflection
Dear Reader, this past week Cade Fon Apollyon and I remote viewed the 3 seasons and movie finale of Deadwood. We’d already seen them together before, but somehow our remote viewing was even better this second time round…
*Okay, Clicky, I’ll try… /rolls eyes…*
… As well as the 2007 documentary Up The Yangtze, focusing on some of the people affected by the construction of the Three Gorges Dam across the Yangtze river in Hubei, China…
*Yikes! …/lights up and smokes…*
… And an astrological reading of the Leo New Moon, set to occur on 18th August 2020. As it turns out, Molly McCord’s reading is the inspiration behind this particular post…
*The other one was pretty good as well, Clicky… /flicks ash…*
… Now, at nearly 20 minutes long, we know that you’re probably not gonna watch Molly’s video, Dear Reader, unless you have an interest in astrology. So here’s the takeaway for the purposes of this post: we’re being asked to reflect on what has happened in our lives, and in our relationships, since the last time the Sun and Moon were in the exact same positions in the chart. That was three years ago on 21st August 2017, the date of the solar eclipse across North America…
*No, I shit you not, Clicky… /puffs contentedly… It’s quite auspicious…*
… So that is what we’re going to do here, Dear Reader. Fortunately, to aid Cade and I in our reflections, we have a lovely missive posted at the LoL on that very same eclipse day…
… You might want to take a look.
As Leo is a masculine sign and the energy coming through from the New Moon will be very masculine, especially in the solar plexus area according to Molly, Cade will now open the proceedings…
I guess I can start off by remembering that 2017 was the year that I discovered surgical mesh was likely to blame for the exasperation of some existing physical issues, and it was around the time of the eclipse that this revelation occurred. And yeah, upon reflection it would seem a bit fortuitous that this particular wad of twisted and twisting surgical mesh is indeed in my solar plexus area. Three years later, skin is still coming off by the bucket-load, muscles continue to unwind and cramp, feeling in my extremities continues to come and go, and revelations and discoveries abound. One of the more recent being that my Achilles Tendons both seem to be…absent.
Q: How in the FUCK does one’s Achilles Tendons disappear, yet one does not notice?
A: Something tells me that the massive calloused pads on the heels and balls of my feet hold some answers.
To be fair, my hamstrings also disappeared, but that was something I noticed. In fact, I’m not the only one that noticed. A girl I went to high school with (who just so happened to run track) one day pointed out to me that I had some mighty quads, but no hamstrings. We both looked at/examined my legs further, and I’ll never forget the look on her face as she saw the same weird looking deformity I was seeing in that my hamstrings seemed to have disappeared. They were gone. Not there. Years later, my orthopedic surgeon noticed the same, but he noticed something else going on back there. Story for another time.
I’ve got a playlist on my YouTube page of 15 short videos I took of the August 21st 2017 eclipse, and they were meant to be a humorous look through inexperienced eyes at a celestial phenomenon. What it means to have one’s eyes opened, what it means to learn, and maybe how one handles the realities of learning some confusing and potentially unpleasant shit.
Whilst I’m not claiming any specific knowledge, I have learned quite a bit over the past decade or so about the potential impact(s) of celestial goings on and how these goings on may affect life in various ways. Fine-tunings of the galactic clockworks and how we as individuals fit it. Still digging, still learning, still failing miserably at virtually anything and everything, but still going. Not a fucking clue how, nor why, but yeah…still going.
Prolly should stop reflecting and talking about myself so goddamn much and pass it back over to that loopy cunt Roob.
^Happy Up Here (Datassette Remix)^
*Cade’s so sweet, Clicky…*
Funnily enough, the thing that’s concerning me most, and has felt like a punch in guts, happens to be the thing Cade first wrote in his missive of 21st August 2017…
*Yes, a sync of sorts… /drags… You know, Molly does talk about a deep cleansing aspect in her vid, Clicky… /plumes smoke…*
Not the biblical character, Job, that Cade mused over but my actual job, the thing I do to earn money and how I earn my keep. In August 2017, I’d just landed a job locally as a Personal Assistant, having spent the whole of 2016 unemployed. Hooray! But by the New Moon on the 18th August I may no longer have a job, or worse, I’ll have one that I’ll absolutely hate because of a dreadful restructure, deemed necessary by the higher echelon in the organisation. All because they fancy a pool…
*We’ll be a pool of comfort women, Clicky… /cough… ‘Cept, you know, providing administrative relief to all and sundry…*
… Like a return to the 1950s…
*Thinking about it, Clicky. Thinking about it…*
And on that sour note, I’ll pass you back to Cade.
Its all amalgamation and capital. And down sigh zing/redud dancy. The new New walks upon the dust from the bones of the old Old. Which I find ironic considering that a lot of government entities seem to be so fucking lost that they are returning to old ways. Going “old school”, if you will. And speaking of, sure are a lot of council jobs been advertised in The Echo as of late. Not that I read the Southend paper or am looking for jobs in Southend or anything, but perhaps your local Council is tightening its belt in certain areas so it can achieve bountiful proportions in others?
One of the very first things I did upon starting this re-watch with you was look up the word “hooplehead”. Wanted to find some definitive meaning for usage in this context of usage in the show. I mean yeah, lots of context clues, and everyone knows what a hoople is, but hooplehead? I always assumed it was some arcane slang pejorative in reference to an individual perceived to possess a child-like understanding. Some naive someone who is still playing the children’s games and is not “in the know” and not part of the grander schemes and bigger plays. Someone who is somewhat…under the protection of…their own ignorance. A sort of halo. or maybe a certain light or aura that an individual exhibits. But ya know what I found? Hooplehead…supposedly didn’t even exist until HBO’s Deadwood created it.
But not so fast. Lets pull back on them reigns a bit cowboys and cowgirls.

Been chewing on these thoughts for some time as it relates to shapes generated by orbiting bodies, such as the mandala-esque shapes the planets and other bodies generate over time, and what meanings they may have to someone on the outside looking in. Specifically, is it possible that the orbits of planets are indicative of a system’s current level of development. Maybe even indicative of whether or not life exists within a particular system, or maybe even if a particular system is slated for development or even destruction? A stellar clock of sorts which maps out time and times that we are just now learning how to read and understand.
I digress again
Needless to say when Molly McCord mentioned certain entities being under some kind of protection and Richie Rich and all that other jazz in her astrological talk yesterday, it was kinda jarring because it was right in line with some things I was already actively pondering. Of course, she eventually wandered off into some dark realms and seemed to think that evil people are under the protection of evil forces. But I personally am wondering about “good” people. What is protecting them, why, and is there some kind of indication that they are…untouchable, as it were? Afterall, no one wants to known as someone who engages in sport or combat with unworthy opponents. That would be unfair.

*There was something Al said about Dan’s fight with the Captain, Clicky… /thinks… What was it?*
(Cut to Al’s office as Johnny knocks on the door)
Al: Yeah? (Johnny enters)
Johnny: I wish you’d look in on Dan, boss. Not for being poorly as… down.
Al: Johnny, some shit’s best walked through alone.
Johnny: Dan’s killed people before. You have too. But neither’ve been solitary after.
Al: A fair fight, something Dan and I have always struggled to avoid, is different. You see the light go out of their eyes. It’s just you left and death.
Johnny: So that’s why Dan wants to be alone.
Al: He knows where to find me. (Johnny nods and turns to leave) Sit down. If you want to. (Johnny turns and shuts the door, sitting down in a chair. He sits there looking around for a bit, as Al is leaning in the balcony door. Finally he turns to Al)
Johnny: What’re… ..what are we waiting for?
Al: To see what kind of hell breaks loose.
Whilst I was editing your Wiki wavy wall above, Cade, so that a new window opens upon clicking, Thing 2 or Loopy-Lou, sitting off to my right, was telling somebody online that “This Halo will be the last”…

Belief is a weird thing. Some, may have no knowledge of the ride nor what any consequences of riding may be, and they may even not be aware they are on the ride. Some, knowing the ride may not suit them, avoid the ride altogether and are content in their choices. Some, knowing the ride may not suit them, ride the ride anyway and may or may not regret having done so. Some, are not sure whether the ride will or will not suit them, and they may or may not ride the ride out of concern for the consequences of either outcome. Some, are aware, but have no choice as to whether or not to ride the ride. Doesn’t matter whether they want to or not, and it doesn’t matter the outcome. They are where they are. Belief is irrelevant. Proof is irrelevant.
All that to say that we’re all of us in various states of development and/or decay. Some are sharp, some are a bit slow on the uptake, some may be wishy-washy as hell and mostly wander around in a non-committal type daze. Maybe being aware of how we react to one “type” or another may help us learn about ourselves and where we actually may be lacking. Like, as far as relating goes. That which brings comfort to ourselves which is borne upon the wings of the discomfort of others, has a null and empty quality to it. Almost a hunger embedded in the satiations and dissatisfactions which necessitates a repeat of the experience. Maybe we get stuck in loops for a reason.
Apologies for wandering off the deep end. Just wondering aloud what it may mean for one to be satisfied. We are talking about some quite esoteric bullshit, and many have likely only barely scratched the surface with respect to knowing and understanding what all could potentially be entailed in this and these processes. There’s lots to know. Lots to think about. Sometimes its difficult to condense and share for purposes of relating.
^CHVRCHES – The Mother We Share^
*You think I should go there, Clicky? …/lights up and smokes… Alright then…*
Back to the subject of personal reflection on the period of time since 21st August 2017, it was shortly after the eclipse that my interesting in Lashy’s Gnostic teachings was rekindled with his ‘Decoding the Mandela Effect’ series on YTube…
*Fucked up a ton of posts here though when he took them down to start his school…/flicks ash… Probably for the best though eh, Clicky? … /deep drag… Not in his image afterall…*
… One of the things Molly McCord said about of the New Moon in Leo later this month was that it will bring new narratives, new stories. As a writer and co-editor of the Underdog Anthology series of books, this was of great interest to me: any cosmic help in developing new story ideas, is welcome. Since the 2017 eclipse, 9 separate anthology volumes have been published and another is scheduled for this Halloween. I need to get my thinking cap on…
*/puffs contentedly… Thanks for the vote of confidence, Clicky… /pats snout…*
I’ll pass back to Cade for some final reflecting…
May your thinking cap for the upcoming book be a fucking fabulous one Roob. 🙂
Me? Imma put my reflecting hat on for a bit longer.
^Imperial March Recorder^
As far as reflecting goes, 2017 was a weird year for me. Difficult in talking about some of it without talking about all of it, as parsing the tale tells nothing. That said, I do recall heading out to the National Cemetery not long after the eclipse to see my pop and older sister. Early September. A bird had shit on dad’s tombstone. Musta been a fucking Pterodactyl based on the size of the splatter. A shitty exclamation point on a shitty year? Maybe. But I didn’t think that then and I don’t think it now, so now I’m gonna have to question why I’m reflecting other than I’ve been instructed to do so by an astrologist who tells me the time is right for doing so.
To be fair, I’ve been in a reflective state pretty much this entire year. Am not writing, can’t think straight, having trouble remembering things, under quite a bit of pressure, few writing ideas, and what few there are I cannot hold onto. It would be easy for me to say that the hope that I lost in early 2017 was regained in late 2017, but that ride from December 2017 to December 2019 has began to crumble under me. However, I don’t really feel like anything is crumbling. Shifting maybe, but not crumbling. Prolly because I’ve got other things going on that fill me with hope whilst everything else simultaneously goes to shit? No idea. Been a damn strange year, and a lot of people seem to be completely filled with some anticipation of total collapse. But not me. Can’t say why I’m not filled with fear and doubt, but I’m not.
This “Lion’s Gate” stuff is strange because August 8th is forevermore gonna be a weird day for me personally. Pop was born on August 8th in 1941, he died 8 days before my older sister’s birthday, and my older sister died on August 8th in 2013. If any of that means anything, I have no idea what it is outside of the obvious. Not anything I can share anyway. Mom is Taurus, dad is Leo, older sis is Sagittarius, younger sister is Gemini, I’m a Scorpio. My older sister was the son my father never had, my younger sister was born on Father’s Day, and I’m just kinda in the way. Hanging out. Chillin’. Dodging the bullets I can dodge. Fairly middling, kinda plain, nothing particularly special about me ‘cept I’m sickly as hell and allergic to every fucking thing on the planet; doing my best to be okay with all that. Not sure what else it is I need to be doing. Although if anyone could fuck up something as seeming simple as reflecting, I prolly can. Still, sometimes just kinda seems like people are being nosy whilst appearing to be discreet. Guess sometimes you just gotta take shit on faith, hope for the best, all whilst preparing yourself for a royal ass-fucking.

If you are looking for the source of a river, chances are you’re looking in the wrong direction.
Up is actually out, and out is eventually down…the river will spread and diverge from there.
By first looking up, you can cover more ground more efficiently
So yeah, when looking for a river’s source? You’re gonna have to look high and low.

Ever heard of “scoop marks”? Was watching something on the topic of alien abductions with a friend, and the topic of “scoop marks” came up in the video. Supposedly, a surefire telltale sign of being abducted by aliens is these things called “scoop marks” on the skin where extraterrestrials are supposedly taking skin samples. The lady in the video showed a photo of some of these “scoop marks”, and I freaked upon seeing examples of these scoop marks. I, am fucking covered in those things. Always wondered what they were, why they are there, etc., but now am I to assume that I’ve been abducted multiple times by extraterrestrial beings?

All I wanted to do was see if I could find something on “scoop marks” on the epidermis. Maybe see what, if anything, they may have to do with Morgellons.
^Aldous Harding – Zoo Eyes (Official Video)^
Now, I can honestly say that I know exactly what caused at least one of these many scoop marks that I personally have. Weed-eater, or string trimmer or whatever you wanna call it slung a rock into my left shin, made a huge indention, and it never really healed for a very long time. Eventually it turned white, the indention is still there, and this was kind of a trigger for me to start looking at these other “scoop marks” that I was already covered with long before that weed-whacker left an impact crater on my shin.
What I wondered was, is it possible that I am, for some reason, covered with impact craters. Because if that’s the case, what in the FUCK could possibly be slamming into me that I would not notice? Worse still, maybe I DID notice, but these injuries happened so long ago that I for the most part dismissed them. Certainly never considered some aggregate down the road that would result in my body looking like the surface of Luna.
Q: What are the chances of lightning striking twice in the same place?
A: Roy Sullivan
Now, Roy may have been struck multiple times, but he was likely in different places when he was struck. Like for example, riding your motorcycle down the highway at 70mph in shorts with no shirt and no helmet, and getting stuck behind a gravel truck that is peppering the living fuck out of you as it trails a rolling sandstorm.
With that in mind, does a single person/human qualify as a single point in space? Different places, different times, different storms, different injuries, same human. What I’m thinking about here is more related to “less-physically detectable” types of impacts which may be blasting a human body daily without you ever even knowing it. Is there an aggregate type of damage occurring over time which results in scars appearing with no apparent cause(s)?
^deadmau5 – Monophobia (feat. Rob Swire) [Official Video]^
How many times you figure you used a weed-eater while wearing shorts and butchering the living fuck out of your legs before you decided it was probably a good idea to wear long pants when trimming the grass on the lawn? I live in Texas. It’s hot out there in the summer. Motherfucking hot hot hot it is. Lawn work wearing jeans to protect my legs? Not a very appealing idea no matter how much of a beating the jeans save my legs from.
So you’ve got a choice…butcher your legs via high-speed debris slung by the weed-whacker, or forego the micro-injuries to your legs and risk dehydration and possibly heat stroke. You could of course save yourself by hiring the job out. Let somebody else take the risks and suffer the injuries.
^French 79 – Hometown [Official Video]^
Lesse…where was I? OH YEAH!!! I was thinking about micro-impacts on the epidermis, and maybe what that does over time. Also thinking about how long a scar or blemish might take to manifest if one were caught outside during a solar storm. Or maybe after getting an x-ray. Or maybe if you live near a cell tower. Or maybe if the shielding on your home’s wiring isn’t that great.
Thing is tho, I’m also thinking about how likely energy is to return to a specific point on the human body. We are electrical beings afterall, we generate fields, and a specific field generated by a specific human may have a propensity to direct certain energies to certain locations. May seem a stretch to some, but it occurs to me that any energy/energies which the body cannot deflect, it may try to direct. Send it to some area where this energy will do the least amount of damage. Or maybe even…the most amount of damage.
Q: DUDE!!! Why in the flying fucking HELL would the body intentionally direct an energy to where it would do the most amount of damage?!?!?!?!????
A: Maybe certain energies are not supposed to exist when and where they do, and/or perhaps not in the intensities and/or frequencies where they exist
Sucks for sure. but at the same time, great calling card to leave.
THIS(energy) = THAT(injury)
^Dave Brubeck – Golden Brown^
For the record, I’m not thinking specifically about “5G” in the thoughts above. 5G is just one of many energies that we are bombed with every day, and more are coming. What is on my mind is how our bodies respond and even adapt. Or at least, how our bodies cope.
lolz…speaking of being bombed by energies…in the video below, @ 37 seconds, one of the girls bends over, and you can almost tell that the camera operator started to zoom in on the girl’s ass, but thought better of it and wobbled a bit before turning the focus away from her bent-over ass.
So yeah…um…with that girl bending over like, can her ass and the related real-estate be considered “a directed-energy weapon”?
^Thunderpussy – Thunderpussy (Live on KEXP)^

^Messer Chups – Magneto – The Open Stage Berlin^
When you are several hundred feet tall, I’m guessing that the combination of a huge heart coupled with three brains produces a lot of electricity. Nevermind that you’ve got a giant body moving through air which almost assuredly produces a shitload of static electricity. I guess this is why King Ghidra/Monster Zero can shoot lightning out of it’s mouth(s). I do wonder tho – Ghidra does seem to be able to blast lightning on command, so where is all that electricity stored until needed?
^Animal Collective – My Girls (Official Video)^
And speaking of storing electricity, I finally got my first gander at a battery from a Tesla car the other day. Was shocked to learn that the battery seems to be a giant flat plate that runs the entire length and width of the vehicle. I dunno how concerned you personally are about electromagnetic and/or electrostatic radiation, but putting your ass on top of a giant source of such energies? Especially with no shielding between your soft bits and that giant battery?
Seems like a bad idea
Nevermind that induction motor swinging electrons like crazy. Riding in a Tesla vehicle just seems the equivalent of operating a balloon factory on top of some power lines that are located near a cluster of TV transmitters and broadcast towers, and all your workers are cats.

I have no idea what kind(s) of shielding a Tesla vehicle has for the EMF radiation(s) that the vehicle itself emits. I do know that finding information about the particulars of Tesla vehicles has proven to be troublesome. But that kinda makes more sense now that I know that Tesla vehicles will not work unless they are connected to the Tesla corporation’s infrastructure. It also appears that Tesla vehicle owners cannot work on nor repair their own vehicles. You cannot purchase parts for your Tesla vehicle.
Sounds like Musk has taken the worst from other corporations, and aggregated them in his own corporation.
Why in the fuck would anyone want to own one of these things?

…you are now an operative of the state.
Before long, everyone you interact with will be so well trained in so many areas of information gathering for dissemination to third parties that the nature of one-on-one relationships will forever be changed. Unless you yourself have also been trained and assimilated into the intelligence gathering rings, you’ll have no idea what other people are sizing you up for and why. Fuck getting your packages delivered in a timely manner, we’re too busy trying to snoop on you to worry about something so insignificant as your consumerist bullshit parcel.
Best part is that certain entities can save on their operating costs. Worst part is that it diminishes the importance of the concepts behind the NSPCC’s stated purpose. Nevermind that you’ve created yet another branch for abuse(s) by attempting to turn more and more people into informants. Someone complains about Deliveroo?
Report them as suspected child abusers
If this was a voluntary thing your delivery drivers signed up for? Maybe not quite as bad as your delivery personnel are willingly accepting the associated risks. But making it mandatory? You’re opening your employees up to a shitload of personal risk which you yourself do not share, all so your company and its partners can get some free advertising.

James Randi (AKA: The Amazing Randi) is known for taking an entire bottle of homeopathic medicine before a performance in order to demonstrate what bullshit homeopathic medicines are. The dose in each capsule is so minute, that he can take a whole bottle with no ill effect on his person. If it’s the dose that makes the poison, I guess in this case, the absence of proper dosing is perceived to be the poison.
But at the same time, a ship with a small rudder will turn just as well as a ship with a large rudder, you just gotta plan ahead a little further with respect to your turns. And what I’m thinking about here is how well we chart our courses and plan our turns with respect to our own health. More specifically, is it possible that minute changes/minute influences can affect our lives equally as much as drastic changes/influences?
^Allah-Las – Long Journey^
You cut out the enchiladas and chicken wings in order to whip your body “back” into shape. Back – there’s no going back. Forward is the only available option. With that in mind, you’re headed backwards in your head, forwards with your body, and the whole mess is gonna wind up someplace that neither likely expected to be. Lemme back up a bit. If you make changes in your life, it should prolly be to alter course from where you are currently headed rather than an attempt to return to home port. You never left home port. You took it with you when you ventured off to wherever in the fuck you went. Perhaps that old saying “you can never go home again” should actually read…”you can ever go home again”. You’re always home. Always and ever, home.
^Starcrawler – Bet My Brains^
I wanna know what densities are required within the human body to achieve a certain result. Take Carbon for example. We are supposedly “Carbon-Based” lifeforms, so what the fuck is it doing in there, why is it required, and in what concentration(s)?
Same with other stuff
What kinds of mass is required? What density? What concentration? More than that, what make the body go bonkers when certain densities of certain things are attained?
We’re gonna have to think energy and energies here as well, because we here and now live in a world that is motherfucking obsessed with energy. Booze, Ayahuasca, opiates/opioids, coffee, energy drinks, vitamins & minerals, wearable technology, WiFi, radio, television, noisy cars, noisy airplanes, air-pollution, makeup, deodorizers, scented candles, cleansers …we are fucking bombed out of our fucking gourds on energy and energies of every sort. But what about…
A thread. A tiny fucking fiber embedded in your flesh that is so small that you’d need a powerful microscope in order to see it. What does that “dense object” do to your body as it occupies space and displaces what would normally be there? How does your body even perceive it? Does your body even perceive it?

Recently, I read something regarding the length of human DNA strands. It stated that the length of all the DNA strands from a single cell stretched end to end equates to about 6 feet/2 meters, and that all the DNA from all the cells in a single human would stretch from Earth/Terra to Sol and back 300 times. Today, I see this…
The average adult human male is 5’6” wide and 1’4” tall. Wait…I fucked that up. Average adult human male is 5 feet 6 inches tall, and 1 foot 4 inches wide. You know what? Fuck this.

Was just listening to an Astrology video that a certain someone posted over at Merovee, when I open my Twitter and see this…
I guess that is more or less an admission that everything you do within your first 10 years as an Astrologer is complete bullshit. Sounds to me like you owe a lotta people refunds.
Q: Are lawsuits against Astrologers a thing?
I’m guessing that Astrology is considered a service since the Astrologer is basically performing labor for a specific period of time, and there’s no tangible something provided in the transaction.
Can I sue an astrologer for his wrong predictions? Shouldn’t we have laws to jail astrologers for false predictions?
Jail? JAIL?!?!?! No fines? No warnings? No probation? No licensing revocations? Straight to fucking JAIL with ye!!!
Jesus...tough crowd this one
^Hazel English – I’m Fine [Official Lyrics Video]^
If there’s law regulating a something, that likely means licensing is also going to be required. If licensing is required, that means regulatory agencies are going to be required. If regulatory agencies are required, that means money is required. If money is required, that means taxes are required.
You wanna know the future, eh? But you want these predictions to be accurate and you also want recourse in the event predictions are not accurate? Welp, here’s a prediction for ya…

Seems to be a disconnect between the video title and what is actually said during the course of the video.
If you want something protected, protect it. Pretty simple really. Don’t ask someone else to do it, don’t commission someone else to do it, don’t attempt to force someone else to do it. Finish your smoke, finish your beer, end your complaint-cast, and get your own ass down to wherever this something is you want protected and protect it. It will mean so much more to your personal scruples with your own ass on the line to protect this something.

Are you one to turn down financial opportunities? Nah, I didn’t think so, just asking. We’re pretty much trained from the cradle to identify and act upon opportunities. We may even have plans already in place should certain opportunities arise.
If “this” = “that” then
If “dead” = “rising” then
Do “grab gun and aim for the head”;
You may even have more esoteric plans. Like, in the event of a retreat or some other withdrawal of the opposition, advance your own forces. Problem with adopting military thinking is tho, that you kinda need to be a study of the entire subject in order for military/paramilitary thinking to be effective. Utilizing only bits and pieces of military strategy is likely to lead to disaster.

Yeah I know, plenty of stories throughout history of people(s) tearing the living fuck out of things, and we’re just likely experiencing our own tribulations in that and those regard(s). Do wonder how blind people are with respect to the reasons why?
That includes how blind I myself am
I see things, but not sure what that really means, nor to whom. Mainly, I’m interested with why certain entities appear to be attempting to get me to think and behave in certain ways. Requiring me to state the obvious is neither confirmation nor reinforcement. If anything, it’s a detraction. Limiting. Puts me in a box and requires me to behave in a manner that is acceptable and/or pleasing to you. Makes me act in ways that you think you’d behave were you in a similar situation. Got news for you, I’m not you, nor will I behave like you. Similar maybe, but certainly not same.

A QUESTION FROM THE WHATEVER HOWEVER HOTLINE!!!
Q: Cade, why do you write about the things you do, and why do you continue to write about them in the way that you do?
Cade: Great question, and I can only give some answers which may not be “the” answers.
A1: I grew weary of subcontracting my understanding out to others. One day it kinda became clear that I had been farming my thinking out to others. I own the land, but someone else works it. And this is by no means an attempt to berate those who have taught me nor to degrade what their assistance has provided me. Plenty of people throughout history seem to have figured out some amazing stuff pretty much on their own, and yet we seem to live in a time where “you can’t figure out anything for yourself” is a quite common theme just about anywhere you look – I’m too stupid to bake a cake from scratch, I’m too stupid to jar my own pickles, I’m too stupid to fix my own toilet, I’m too stupid to do my own taxes…No, no citizen…sit back, relax, leave it to the professionals. Modern life is too big for you to make it on your own steam.
It became clear at some point that maybe there are those in the world doing my thinking for me, and maybe that these same individuals and/or groups don’t necessarily have my best interests in mind/at heart. Kinda jarring actually. Maybe even horrifying.
A2: I have access to quite an amazing tool called ‘The Internet’. Loads of information is relatively easy to access, and its full of parity, same parity, opposite parity, disparity…you name it, it’s there. All kinds of contrasts and flavors, and loads of stuff which I now have access to which I almost certainly wouldn’t otherwise. As such, my wandering mind can afford to stretch a bit with respect to not only what I research, but also the connections that I make. It’s a unique environment to search for paradox. Seemingly disconnected things which are in fact connected, even if their only connection is that they are not connected and/or not connected in the way(s) you thought they may have been. If I see an image, and it makes me think of something, I start writing about it, then a song comes up in my playlist which, oddly enough, also seems to have a connection with both the image and what I’m writing about? That’s weird. I’m likely gonna share that.

Raiders Of The Lost Park
Time: Distant Future.
Premise: Archaeologists excavate large areas all over the world which appear to have been plots of land set aside for unknown reasons. Some contain unique arrays of various strange contraptions and devices, winding paths, minimalist infrastructure/construction, and many appear to have been near creeks, rivers and ponds, but no clear evidence exists as to any specific purpose(s). Religious rituals? Centers of commerce? Lavish social events? The growing of crops? The keeping of livestock? Public gathering places for political discourse? Primitive scientific studies? Astrological and/or Astronomical studies? Public execution sites? Carbon Dating reveals that sites all over the planet appear to show that these areas ceased to be used at almost the exact same time, so what happened globally to cause them to all be, apparently, simultaneously abandoned?
Conclusion: We may never be able to answer these questions.

^Chlär – Artificial Supremacy [BD005]^
The best way to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution (the right to bear arms) is to not repeal it at all. You can go around the impossible by adding/modifying other laws to where the citizen(s) themselves are to blame for their inability to own, purchase or possess firearms and/or other weaponry.* We’re right in the big middle of a situation where virtually every level of government is abridging a piece of the 1st Amendment – the right of the people peaceably to assemble – and I see a law which “expands” what is considered a felony as a method of deflating the relevance of the 2nd Amendment. If you are a felon, you likely cannot purchase nor own firearms of any kind. Also if you are a felon, you are a felon for life, barring some extraordinary something which you are granted a pardon or your conviction(s) are overturned. As such, convict someone of a felony, and the 2nd Amendment is immaterial. It’s almost like…spiritual warfare.
* I make this note because what is/is not considered “arms” can and does change. A taser, a laser, mace (the spray chemical, not the surface-tosurface tactical missile nor the bludgeon nor the spikey-ball flail attached to a stick via a chain) a railgun (and that’s “railgun” not “railway gun”), a claymore (the sword, not the explosive anti-personnel mine) a box cutter or some other utility knife, strong acid(s), radioactive material, a … erm … virus or maybe some other disease …shit like that. I can “arm” myself with just about anything. Question is, what is a something’s intended/designed use or intended/designed purpose vs actual use.
^Triple French Pork with Svetlana – Cooking with Boris^
People seem to be pissing themselves over what that UFO video “officially released” by the US Department of Defense actually shows. You know what interests me? What the video does not show. You might be able to engage an enemy aircraft, destroy it, but modify video filmed from the aircraft to show…nothing.
Why would that be beneficial?
Welp…suppose China says USA shot down a Chinese aircraft. You could show that it was impossible for the aircraft in question to be involved because they were on maneuvers elsewhere in the world. See? We’ve got video proof right here! More disturbing tho, is the onboard weapons systems themselves. Could it be that a weapons system could be designed in such a way to display things which are not actually there?
Sure they could
We live in an era where it is not uncommon for a weapons platform like a fighter jet to never actually be within visual range of the targets they are engaging and/or firing upon, save for the maybe the advanced optics that a particular aircraft may be equipped with. Is it possible to bastardize systems to where they think they are engaging enemy aircraft, when they are in fact engaging commercial or maybe even general aviation aircraft or drones? I’d think it’d be possible. Not to mention that you might be able to access enemy weapons systems and have them chase phantoms or maybe even identify their own resources as hostile.
^The Loud Age – Sur La Maladie (Pt. 1) [PS06]^
There was a fire in/on South Padre Island…lightning appears to be the suspected cause.
Hash Oil-Adulterated Products
If what I am reading is correct, people are cutting corners to make more money selling their, what appears to equate to, medical products. Cheap fillers, potentially unethical or even dangerous stopgap measures instituted so that production may continue, shoddy manufacturing methods…business as usual kinds of stuff. Just like any business might do when they want or need more money. Maybe even say…companies who produce vaccines or other medicine(s).
What really surprised me about the LA fire… Oh wait, I forgot to mention that fire. But yeah, watching a video of the LA fire and that HUGE deflagration revealed a company called ‘Biohazard Inc.’ Stuffed right in the middle of ‘Green King’ and ‘Green Buddha’ is a something called Biohazard Inc…
That looks more like a medical supplies page or a chemical lab equipment page than a retail paraphernalia business. I guess they are a manufacturer and/or wholesaler. I sure as shit know their “About Us” page seemed kinda ambiguous. But yeah…medical suppliers. Medical manufacturers. I’m mainly wondering how much “product” it takes to generate a deflagration of that magnitude, and what in the fuck they are doing storing that much flammable material in the same place. Let alone storing it in a place surrounded by what appears to be all kinds of other businesses.
You’re gonna get regulated to death after this. Pot finally starts to get some breathing room, and something happens that sucks the wind right out of you. Look, it sucks that there were firefighters injured. I hate it. But I also hate when shit has the appearance of intentional mislabeling. That does not appear to be an “explosion” to me. Not even a detonation of any kind. Even the video from a distance looks and sounds like a deflagration, but even the Public Information Officer calls it an explosion. Maybe I have an incomplete understanding of what an explosion is/is not. Explosion does sound cooler tho, and most people may not have a clue what deflagration even is.
Deflagration To Detonation Transition
Energy Release Component
Burn Rate (Chemistry)
Wonder if this Coronavirus thing is considered an explosion. Or is it more of a fuse. A something designed to burn at a specific rate in order to facilitate spacing between one event and another. I only ask because it would appear that Australia is wanting an inquiry into where nCoV-2019 came from.
Fires feeding fires
^Explosion in downtown L.A. injures multiple firefighters^
The fact that the Universe is 50+ billion years wide and getting wider and older all the time, but only 13.8 billion years old, is mysterious enough. Especially when Science keeps selling this business about certain constants always being constant, like the speed of light, all in the big middle of constantly changing how old they think the Universe is. But you know what is really mind-boggling?
Yeah, the symmetry of elements + the symmetry of when they supposedly formed on the universal timeline. How in the fuck is it that Hydrogen formed left, and right, and up, and down, and every other fucking place? Moving outwards from the point of this Big Bang thingie, shouldn’t there maybe be Hydrogen up, and maybe Hydrogan down, and Hydrogon left, and Hydrogenoganogon right, and Hydrogodonlyfuckingknows in the middle? Not to mention that all of these elements are all said to have formed at precisely the same time.
But to be fair, maybe this is why certain things appear to be so screwy. Positive/negative charges, entanglement, things appearing older than they should be, things appearing younger than they should be, spooky whatever at a wherever, things without mass and things with mass, up, down and all around quarks, things that appear to be in multiple places at the same time, black holes, matter/antimatter, etc…
^747 – Aurora Centralis (Tin Man’s Spaced Remix) [AQR015]^
With all that in mind, you know what else bothers me? If all of these distant galaxies that we are now seeing are really and truly no longer there because their light takes so long to reach us…
Q: Shouldn’t we not be here either?
A: ¿¿ ? ¿¿
If that distant galaxy can be seen, there’s a good chance that galaxy can also see us, yes? No? Am I being naive here about when our own galaxy may have been formed? I’m just wondering about the nature of this so called Big Bang with respect to the formation of galaxies, and why and maybe even how a galaxy would be able to project matter and energy outwards if it had no place to go. But the basis of my thinking in this case is why is it that a distant galaxy is thought to be gone (even tho we can see the fucking thing), and yet we somehow are not also gone.
One would think there is somehow an equality as to why things not only exist within a scope to where these objects can observe one another, (irrespective of how the information is exchanged) but also that there would be some kind of symmetry to it. Even if that symmetry is muddy or fuzzy. There would have to be something at work which maintained the illusion that a galaxy 20 billion light years away is still intact and recognizable as a galaxy, when in fact the galaxy no longer exists at all and hasn’t for some time. Some force which maintains a referential integrity of points in space long after these points are gone (if they are indeed gone, that is).
^Leftwing & Kody – You Were (Original Mix)^
Gone. What is “gone”. Wait. Would one of these questions be more correct?
Q: What is “gone”?
Q: When is “gone”?
Or maybe even
Q: Where is “gone”?
Maybe “gone” is an amalgamation of every interrogative where the sum total of all = 0. If any of the interrogatives != 0, then Gone = False. That sounds like it should be a SoPi. Let’s make it so: SoPi-X. And in the spirit of SoPi-X being a formula for the calculation of null within spacetime, I think I’m gonna forgo any kind of visual representation of it for the time being.
NOTE: Black holes, “empty” space, massless particles, dark matter/energy and the like won’t count because they occupy space(s) and time(s) in measurable and/or observable ways. Neither will extinct species, dead people, people who have yet to exist, ancient civilizations, dead languages, dreams, memories, etc., because they too occupy measurable space(s) and time(s). SoPi-X is to be representative of a never-was which cannot be calculated and/or a never-will-be which cannot be calculated, except via the representation of a 1 via 0. (zero(0) being the “one(1)” in this case)
I’ll need to chew on whether or not both 1 and -1 need to be addressed, and when. Also need to give some thought to things which may have existed on timelines we are unaware of, and whether or not the potential exists for these things existing again.
^Tom Neville – Slide (deadmau5 Remix)^
∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ + SoPi-X = ¿?
Wait…instead of combining ∞ = /_\ = ∞ with SoPi-X, maybe SoPi-X actually should be ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞
SoPi-X = ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞
I never had a name for that ∞ = /_\ = ∞ thing anyway. Maybe SoPi-X is just the thing for that thing. Problem is tho, ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ has another piece.
Plus, ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ is supposed to be more representative of how things bend + how endless cycles are formed + how things stretch. Even linear cycles which aren’t bent nor stretched at all.
It is part of the SoPi puzzle tho, and the SoPi puzzle is based more on Pi than anything else. Still, the circular + non-repeating cycles aren’t devoid of linear concepts. In fact they depend on them as far as I can tell. Is/Is Not. Closed and open systems existing in the same space(s).

What in the flying fucking hell is going on with all of these state-operated aerobatics teams appearing in the news? First there was the Blue Angels being mistaken for a UFO prior to the lockdown, then the Blue Angles started doing “appreciation” flyovers of major cities, then one of the Red Arrows were supposed to fly in to Southend Airport (but canceled), and now the Snowbirds are in the news?
To be fair, we are supposed to be knee-deep into the airshow season at this point in the year, but pretty much everything is subject to this lockdown, so no shows. That said, its damn weird that these military demonstration teams are appearing on the radar in some damn weird ways. Gotta sting tho that the Paris Airshow has been cancelled.

Missive From ‘Merica: Missive #137
*Good grief, there’s full Moon, too, Clicky? …/bites lip… There’ll be lunatics abroad tonight…*
As promised in yesterday’s missive, Dear Reader, Cade has very kindly whizzed across the 137th installment of his wonder ramblings for your pleasure. I also mentioned yesterday that today, Friday 13th of September, has a connection with 137. Well, two actually…
… The date when written out UK style is 13/9…
*/Tuts… I haven’t finished yet, Clicky…*
… And 139 is a Twin Prime with 137…
*Told ya… /sticks out tongue…*
… Plus as September is named for ‘seven’, the date can be conceived as 13/7. Then there’s the Alternative Thinking 37 sync…
…Raphael at that site has been thinking deeply and alternatively about ‘137’ for the longest time, and has amassed a 137 treasure trove. Yesterday he published a splendid post, the first in ages. 37 is the 12th Prime and today, of course, is the 37th Friday of 2019…
*Yeah, yeah, and 37 is also the atomic number of ROOB ID, I AM… /smokes… It ain’t about me, Clicky…*
… That’s why I am delighted to be able to present the Text US Okie Devil’s 137th missive for the LoL of it today, Dear Reader…
Didn’t get the job – got the rejection email earlier. No big deal really – been turned down and/or ignored for prolly a thousand jobs over the past few years. But this one I was qualified for somewhat, and, I aced the typing test. 40 wpm average with a 98.5% accuracy on a 5 minute typing test ain’t that bad, especially for someone who typically doesn’t type by sight. In fact, I never type by sight. Like read something, and type it at the same time. I’m quite impressed with my typing test result. That’s no mean feat.

Don't ask why I put that there

From a learning standpoint, how did I just refer to myself? Would that be considered 2nd person? 4th person? Did some reading, and everything on this seems to center around pronouns, but I referred to myself by name.
So yeah...3rd person
I guess in order to refer to yourself in the 4th person, you need both 1st and 3rd person. Wait…didn’t I do that? I used both “Cade” and “he”.
^Jump – Funkatarium^
How long until Trump spins his anti-e-cig/fake news crap as a trap. That’s what I’m wondering. Like, some kind of double-cross to “expose” fake news sources…
Was reading Leg Iron’s latest post, and it really got me to thinking that PT will likely spin it. He’ll have to, assuming the “fake news” angle actually sticks. Where in the fuck did this vaping legislation even come from? Talk about coming from left-field, I woulda been less shocked if to hear that the President was introducing legislation that limited the number of toilet paper sheets citizens could use when wiping their butts. Not to mention, the limited reading that I’ve done is indicative that this is a regional problem. Meaning, the state in question should deal with it, not the Federal government. Something else is going on here, and I don’t think it has anything to do with THC, black market products or even vaping.
^Front 242 – Happiness (Dance Mix By Underworld)^
Kind of a holdover thought from the previous missive, but have you ever been somewhat submerged in water, had something float up next to you, you tried to push it away, and it winds up floating even closer to you? Or you try and pick it up from underneath the water, but it runs away from your hand? Or you try and distance your entire body from it, but it follows you? That’s kinda what I was thinking with respect to a body moving through a space, how to identify other bodies, and how to know how to react to those bodies without becoming unnecessarily entangled with those bodies because of your actions. I was thinking more about inorganic kinds of things, but these concepts aren’t much different in a lot of cases than dealing with organics. Like swatting at a wasp is likely to just irritate the fuck out of it. Same could be said of a leaf in a pool of water.
That’s what I’m thinking of. To relate, the reason that supersonic travel is out, is because it’s destructive as hell. Commercial passenger parabolic space travel isn’t going to be much better. To relate even further, I just looked up some figures for SpaceX’s Falcon rockets.
For Falcon 9: 156.1 ± 4.9 dB (unweighted) at 125 ft.
For Falcon Heavy: 160.9 ± 4.9 dB (unweighted) at 125 ft.
Now, to put that in perspective. Like, those numbers… they need some perspective. Wanna come along?
It's gonna get loud
^Finitribe ‘We Have Come’^
As you can see, @ 156.1 and 160.9 decibels, the Falcon 9 and Falcon 9 Heavy rockets are hip deep in the intolerable pool. I think a shotgun blast is around 140 decibels, most commercial aircraft are around 130 decibels, and anything around those numbers and above is where the pain thresholds lay. So if we’re gonna have commercial parabolic space travel carting your tubby ass from Dallas to London in 30 minutes, let’s see what the locals are going to have to deal with.
‘Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport is the world’s fourth busiest airport, offering nearly 1850 flights per day and serving 64 million passengers a year.’
Source = Google – 12 September 2019 @16:22
Now, at 1,850 flights per day for a single airport (D/FW), we kinda need to know what the average passenger load for commercial aircraft is.
What is the average amount of passengers on a plane?
Those numbers look reasonable to me, and it’s something we really need to consider seeing as how, currently, rockets can’t even carry a single person, let alone hundreds. But to be fair, parabolic space flight is likely not the smartest of options for someone traveling from Dallas to Austin or even Dallas to New York. It’s unlikely that 1,850 rockets are going to be blasting off from D/FW each day, so let’s get a bead on the number of international flights that leave from the Metroplex.
‘Overall, DFW Airport has service to 223 destinations, including 56 international and 167 destinations within the United States. Fifteen of the 27 passenger airlines that serve DFW are foreign-flagged, and 12 are domestic.’
Source = Google – 12 September 2019 @ 16:27
That doesn’t tell us much, but some further reading implies that there are 30 flights per week from D/FW to London area airports, which means an average of 4.2 flights per day.
Q: Could we handle 4 rocket launches per day in this area?
No idea, and that’s only the London service. Glass sales are going to go through the fucking roof.
^Skinny Puppy – Tin Omen^
What is the cost effectiveness of devising a system for aircraft that could avoid a bird? What about a system that could avoid an insect? Is that overkill? Altering the course of a 200/300 ton jet just to avoid a mosquito? Especially a mosquito.

^A Split Second – Flesh (Full 12″ Version) (Official video)^
Maybe there’s a balance in the quanta that we are missing. Some something in the ether that knows when and where we are being sloppy as fuck, and maybe where we need to improve in certain areas in order to advance in other areas. Like say… oh, I dunno… maybe in order to increase a certain medical treatment from 30.6% effectiveness to 45.9% effectiveness, all it takes is a reduction of 5% in the number of plants killed by herbicides. That energy has to come from somewhere right? It’s gotta go somewhere too, and there has to be some kind of sustainable something to get it there.
^symphonix – everything you want^
How much of a reduction in life you figure it takes before there’s an implication that life is no longer needed and/or no longer wanted here on our planet. You think it possible that there are solar/galactic/universal audit trails? If so, prolly going to be a lot more audit trails nested in there. Almost like Synthetic CDO’s that are based upon and travel from to and through some base structures. Damn, that sounds like a logistical nightmare. Boy…I sure hope there are some folks thinking in streams like these. Our administration costs could skyrocket if we aren’t somewhat prepared for administratives like that.

Speaking of being wordy, ever heard of this?
Me either. Damn interesting tho. Sounds like Van Deusen and Beard were at odds as to exactly what the root cause of this condition was, but it seems they were in agreement that it was related to some kind of detachment or dissociative something. REALLY interesting that it was associated with “anyone who lives within the monetary system” and also a “culture-bound syndrome”. No fucking wonder the condition has been deprecated, redacted and/or relegated to the footnotes. Can’t have people thinking that society and/or monetary systems can make you sick. This was all going on in the big fucking middle of the Industrial Revolution too. Ya think maybe people were lamenting days gone by? Developing a hate for the future via a really fucking nasty and confusing present?

Google Says a Change in Its Algorithm Will Highlight ‘Original Reporting’
First Trump appears to kowtow to fake news, and not a day later, Google is changing their algorithm to give precedence to “whoever gets there first”? Are you really trying to tell me that news reporting agencies and media groups aren’t completely inundated with moles and informers who get paid to steal stories/information prior to publication so the competition can scoop them? Not only that, did Google really just throw it’s hat into the peer-reviewed and/or authentication/validation ring? Whoever appears first in the results is authentic/genuine?
Fuckin-a…and I thought I was an idiot for spending my days pondering time-travel and teleportation. You guys are fucking morons. Of course, thinking about it now, there is a flip side. Anyone engaging in journalistic thievery are going to somewhat expose themselves by rushing to print and trying to beat everyone else to publication so that Google will boost them in the rankings. It’ll take some time for all that to shake out tho. Could be a lot of heads roll. I take my earlier thoughts back Google. Well played.
^Nothing in the Sun – Ceremony^
Thinking about that now, there is another downside tho. This could potentially give basically “data monopolies” to certain publishers. I write about all kinds of stuff that I hear in “the news”. Am I no longer allowed to write about it? This kinda smacks of broadcast news back in the 1970s and maybe 1980s. You get the story, or you don’t. If you beat the competition to a story? They may not bother reporting on the story at all.
But yeah, I’m wondering as to what exactly will constitute “originality” within the scope of specific events. Not only that, but how are you going to handle those common courtesy types of references. Like, where USA Today will start off a story with “The New York Times is reporting that…”? Especially when the story devolves to “But CNN has reported that…”.
How you gonna handle shit like that?
In cases like that, the story has become the story itself and the stories themselves, and an entirely new story has emerged as a result of the original reporting on…whatever in the fuck they’re reporting on. Anyway, I would think a purveyor of information (Google) is not going to be able to retain your illusory image of non-bias with a change like this. May as well go ahead an clutter up the empty space on that main Google page with paid advertisements and other bullshit. The cloak of your plain-covered wrapper advertising an unbiased Google is completely blown.

Sometimes, there just isn’t enough to talk about in order to accommodate all the images I stumble across. I am wondering how your week was.
How the fuck are you? All of this bullshit is pointless without you, and I have a concern for your well-being. Kind of a passive concern, also a clueless concern, but a concern nonetheless. Been watching a lot of compilation videos lately of road ragers, and you are likely out in that mess day after day. Gotta be rough. Seems like the slightest of things will set someone off, and mistakes on the roadways are strictly taboo. No margins for error. No margins at all based on what I’ve been seeing. I wonder if there are people who get in their cars or on the motorcycles or whatever, and get out on the roadways for the specific purpose of finding someone to get pissed off at.
May wanna keep an eye out for pricks like that
^Lords Of Acid – Take Control^
Speaking of these videos that I’ve been watching, some of the “UK Road Rage” videos are pretty funny, some are downright depressing, but there seems to be an overall theme as to establishing who is right/wrong in a given situation. Like, actively pursuing justice in real time. No court, no judge, no jury, no law…have this out, right fucking here, right fucking now.
This isn’t endemic to just and only the UK, but on watching these videos, I woulda assumed that British drivers would be a tad more friendly, and MUCH more forgiving than drivers in America. Small roads, narrow roads, close quarters, lots of twists and turns, lots of intercepts and crossings, few lanes, and MANY more types of vehicles operating in the same environment, not mention lots of pedestrians. Seems like you’d almost have to be a friendly and forgiving person to survive in such an environment.
That appears to not be the case. What really stands out tho? The curses. I’ve watched enough of these vids now to kinda get the feeling that the first word(s) out of a driver’s mouth on the video is indicative of where that person is from.
Ewe steeyoupid iddy-ought
(you stupid idiot...trying to emulate the accent...tee hee)
What the hell?!
Upon watching vid after vid, trends began to appear. I could only assume that people from a certain area have more of a propensity to respond a certain way, or call someone a certain something, based on the regional dialect. “Bellend” was the one that kinda got me to thinking, as it appeared that maybe people in the northern regions were more apt to use this word first. Not that I am an expert in British accents, but I do try and keep my ears open/be mindful of them. Was also kinda surprised that the use of “bollocks” is rare in these vids. Did hear it a few times tho. Anyway, just thought that language thing was kinda interesting.

Which reminds me, anyone else notice all the “asteroid” and “asteroid close approach” news lately? It’s been almost daily for several weeks now. Is someone trying to tell us in a roundabout way that some new NEO tracking system has come online and it’s now not only being used, but being used to great effect? If so, I can only imagine how much bad news is ahead, and not just and only the operating costs. Guess I could search for press releases regarding any new tracking systems, but it just seems weird that some new asteroid is in the news almost every goddamn day.
Weird things are strange
^OMC – How Bizarre^
Is it just me? Or do we have a discrepancy between this and this?
Thought maybe I’d be clever and see if there was a song named 137, or maybe a song centered around 137, but found those tones instead. Listened to the first to see how clear it was, then checked the second to see how clear it was, and immediately noticed there was a discrepancy between the two. Wanna see how bad it is? Do this:
- Open the first video in one tab, pause it, then open the second video in a second tab and pause it as well.
- Once you have both vids open, start playing the first vid, pop over to the other tab and start playing the second vid.
- You should hear some oscillation with both vids playing at the same time.
If you wanna play further, open that second link in a tab, then open this in another tab. You’ll get a similar oscillation, but it’ll be different because one is a sine wave, and the other is a square wave, whereas the first two were both sine waves.

Missive From ‘Merica: Wipeout
If you’ve noticed lack of missiveness here at the LoL recently, and have been craving some good old Text US Okie Devil meandering ponderings, then today, Dear Reader, is your lucky day…
Wouldn’t it be great to have a book that contains everything you need to know about life, but not need this particular book?
Wouldn’t it be great to have a book that contains the answer to every question you might ever have, but not need this particular book?
Was just pondering the concept of “social ills”, and it occurred to me that being respecters of privacy is a biggie. We are given a choice whether or not to respect someone else’s privacy, and the choice(s) we make in this regard could be considered “seeds of discord” or “seeds of harmony”.
^Arcade Fire – Sprawl II (Soulwax Remix)^
“Pondering the concept of social ills” is something that I personally would consider as “sowing seeds of discord” because I’m gonna have to stick my nose in society’s business in order to figure out what is wrong. I’m then going to have to tell someone what I think is wrong. I may do so before reflecting and evaluating how I personally contribute to this “ill” in my own life, and that almost assures a twisted tree will grow from this seed of my being nosy.
Sow the seeds of (something)
An idiom, eh? Do I use those a lot in my writing?
‘with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord’
Proverbs 6:14 (ESV)
All of Proverbs 6 kinda talks about how to not be a respecter of others’ privacy, and what you should do in the event you do stick your schnoz somewhere it does not belong. But where all of this started was by actually contemplating Rome and wondering why it is always made out to be this hideous place full of blood-thirsty debauchees. I look at the architecture(s) and infrastructure(s) and wonder…welp, if all the Romans were doing was partying and fucking, how in the hell did all that shit get built? How in the hell did they get anything at all done? Is it because Rome “collapsed” that it is looked upon as a shithole that died because it was a twisted and perverted society that choked on its own vomit? Or maybe even choked on someone else’s vomit? And yeah, that can apparently happen, and there’s no way of knowing who’s vomit it is.
Maybe the Romans contracted out all the construction work, and the Romans themselves kicked back and partied during the construction period.
^Klaxons – Gravity’s Rainbow (Soulwax Remix)^
I started this thing back on August 19th. Today is September 4th. What in the fuck have I been doing for the past 2+ weeks?
The short answer is “not much”
Is output indicative of effort? Lemme splain a bit. Ya see, when I started this here missive, I was coming off of a Jordan Peterson bender, had a lot of thoughts on the things discussed, somehow wound up in the book of Proverbs…and that’s where it all went wrong. Ya see, if you identify as a female, Proverbs is likely not the book for you. There is all kinds of good stuff in Proverbs, but you’re gonna have to get through a lot of references to whores, loose women, and weaponized female genitalia in order to get to that good stuff. I’ve nothing against women nor your delicate pretties, but basically, I tripped myself up a bit by starting to dig in Proverbs because of some…lets just say, “bad personal experiences of my own” with respect to this particular book in the Bible. A lot of bad memories came flooding back, so I stopped.
^Club Des Belugas – The Beat Is Rhythm^
Ya know the one commonality that all political parties seem to share?
They want it all
Kinda ironic that the one trait all parties/groups seem to share is that they want to share nothing. I guess that’s why it’s really no surprise to me that so many lefties have a strange liking for President Trump. He’s somewhat of an outsider with respect to Republicans, therefore, he’s someone that can be leveraged. He’s a political paper towel.
Single use and disposable
A something operating under the banner of the opposition that can be used to cripple that opposition. Wait…cripple? Why would you ever want to cripple someone or some thing? Prolly shouldn’t have to look far to answer that question.
^Emmanuelle – Italove – DEEWE015^
So yeah, your political party or group or whatever, wants everything you want, everything your way, and you want anyone who opposes you, or is different from you, to have nothing.
But we’re talking about government(s), so were’ talking about commerce, and not much else. Does it make sense to eliminate your opposition? A battery requires both positive and negative charges in order to function properly, and those neutral thingies get ignored completely, even tho I’m pretty sure they are required as well. So for me and my journey, I’m right fucking back to thinking about that automatonic group where the individual is nullified. Wait…isn’t that the same principle that the Nipponic interests once took? Allegiance to the Emperor, only the Emperor, and you have to die in order to prove that allegiance.
^The Chemical Brothers – The Test (Official Music Video)^
Rambled a bit there, and you can’t see inside my head, but all I could think about in that previous bit was “a necessity for tertiary allegiance”. Like, for the self. For the self to be ebullient, vibrant, and full of vitality and verve, you gotta have options. Attack, defend, stand your ground. Wait… is it possible that a Neutron, Electron or Proton behaves differently in a Democrat than in a Republican? Like, can particles…themselves…mutate?
DUH! Of course they can
I think I may be thinking about this all wrong. I’ve gotten entirely too “Yin/Yang” in my thinking about Electrons and Protons, which means my thinking about Neutrons is all wrong as well. How did I miss that? The Neutrons in my models have at least two modes of “neutral”, so why wouldn’t Protons and Electrons, and even other particles, also be modal? Attack, defend, stand your ground/ignore entirely.
Colors? Colors are potentially indicative of modes of modals? I’ve also got to consider speed(s), distance(s) and vectors. Something blue from one angle could appear blue-green from another. Puts a whole new spin on ranging and approaches/departures, especially at certain velocities. Not to mention that even the unaries are going to be mutative.
Estimating specific subatomic approaches. Jesus, have we really gotten that smart? Or did we just stumble across it thanks to our brute-force methodologies.
^LCD Soundsytem – You Wanted A Hit (Soulwax remix) High Quality^
Calculating the probability/probabilities of deviation based on the approach/departure and/or proximity of influence could be a bear. Gives whole new meaning to the concept of “back away slowly”. I’m thinking primarily about entanglement(s) there. Especially when considering the “deceptive” practices employed by things like viruses. Something models that behavior/ability, and to think that it could not be employed by inorganic or less-organic matter is prolly going to be a mistake. I mean fuck, Pyrite exists…right?
Can you imagine homing in on a signal that you thought was Helium-3, only to discover that the source was actually Lead? What you are using that Helium-3 for, and when you discover your mistake could weigh heavily on any outcome.
(no pun intended)
Gotta take “lensing” types of distortions into consideration as well. At speed, one could easily wind up in position you don’t want to be in, and fast.
^Kutiman – Mix Tel Aviv^
I’m thinking so hard that my tits are jiggling.
Weird...I have no tits
^Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble – Couldn’t Stand the Weather (Video)^
OK, you’re likely wondering what I’m on about here, and I’m thinking about the identification and tracking of atoms, at distance(s), and at speed(s). I’m also thinking about the ranging types of information that need to be taken into consideration in “the void(s) of space”. If you are on the moon, and trying to collect Helium-3 atom by atom so as to reduce the “bycatch” types of chaff in the harvest, you’re prolly going to have to think in ways that are less on the human scale. Or at least, be more scalar in your thinking between the human and Helium-3 atom scales.
Also, if you are blazing through the Universe in a spaceship at C * 71, you’re going to need to be able to quickly and accurately identify matter off your nose in the direction(s) of travel. You’re also going to want to be able to quickly and accurately identify matter that is on intercepting or overtaking trajectories. Not to mention, that the further you travel at those speeds, the more likely you are to start trailing some stuff. We’re not talking about an aircraft traveling in a somewhat stable atmosphere, we’re talking about a spaceship traveling in more or less a vacuum, and this “space” and these “spaces” are likely to have both stable and unstable properties, as we negotiate and traverse membranes and pockets of all kinds.
That’s what I’m thinking about here, but I’m trying to keep my thinking both here and there at the same time.
By the way…
C * 71 = 21,285,264,518 m/s
Yep, that’s 21+ billion
with a “B”
…meters per second.
That equates to 47,613,780,686.29 miles per hour.
Or, 13,226,050.19 miles per second…
if you prefer
At that speed, you could travel from Earth to Mars in 18.82 seconds. And that’s when Earth and Mars are in opposition and both planets are at aphelion.
Not thinking just an only in terms of interstellar travel. Thinking about all kinds of applications. Being able to identify and track a single atom or even smaller particles within the “chaos” of non-controlled and/or less-controlled environments? Woah Nelly! That’d be something. I keep wondering tho…
Q: Am I going to bump into “the soul” at some point?
The spirit? Would I have a fucking clue what I was looking at? Would I care?

^Propellerheads — Take California^
A little over 3,000 people die in car accidents every day. The city that I live in has 142,816 people according to the 2018 census. If 3,000 people died in this city every day, it would take a little over 47 days for them all to die. Now, my thinking here is distribution of wealth…
so to speak
As long as these numbers are onesie-twosie types of deaths that are spread out over large areas, we tend to just shake our heads and shrug. But if your entire neighborhood and a huge chunk of the area in which you live disappeared in the span of a day, maybe that’s why “mass shootings”, “disease outbreaks”, “disasters” and similar are (apparently) such shocking concepts?

I’m gonna digress, because that’s not really where I was going.
‘Nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. More than half of all road traffic deaths occur among young adults ages 15-44.’
– Source: Google, 06 September 2019
OK, so, at 3,287 deaths per day, you could wipe out my city in 43 days instead of the aforementioned 47+ days. That aggregate adds up, and we just shaved almost a week off a bunch of people’s lives…
let's keep going
Texas Cities by Population
#522 on that list is Winnsboro, they have exactly 3,287 residents living there, and that’s exactly the average killed per day in “road crashes” according to Google and I guess W.H.O. Sorry Winnsboro, but we’re gonna have to temporarily change your name to Loseboro since you drew the short stick in the galactic lotto.
There are 1,435 entries on that list, and 914 of those entries are at 3,287 residents or less. There are 1,711 cities in total and some of those are combined with other cities on the list, so it’s prolly safe to say that there are at least 1,000 cities on that list that could be easily wiped out in the span of a day if all “road crashes” were to occur in just one place.
Where am I going with this?
I dunno. Just wondering aloud a bit as to the justification(s) of statistical data. Will you personally tolerate 3,287 people dying per day of West Nile Virus, Cholera or some other disease? More than that, would you tolerate these numbers if they were happening in your own neck of the woods?

Times, TIMES, TIMES!!!
Watched a video last night called Six Degrees Of Separation.
Six Degrees of Separation
The ideas they were chasing are indeed pretty cool. Seemingly anyway. But as I watched, it occurred to me that much of what they were exploring was pre-loaded. They spoke as if networking was some new concept, when in fact, networking is probably one of the oldest and most common things we humans are aware of. I guess it all depends on how you are looking at the data and how you are processing the information, but it occurs to me that “networking” is nothing more than a series of events that result in an endless stream of A to B nodes.
The concept of synchronicity was mentioned at the start of the film, but the topic was dropped, and pretty sure it wasn’t mentioned again. And where the film’s participants really seemed to get sideways, was when they jumped to using their models in predictory ways. Anyway, it was almost as if there were certain things they wanted to succeed, certain things they wanted to fail, and certain things they had no interest in letting them run their course(s).
Why am I talking about all this?
Because I came up with SoPi-O back on May 15th, and ever since then, loads of related stuff has been popping up here and there. No matter how many times it happens, coincidence is always jarring.
to me anyway
The repeating types of coincidence is even more jarring. Can be anyway.
^Heart-Crazy On You^
Not suggesting that looking at existing systems is dumb or pointless, because I don’t think that’s the case. There’s always something to see, and there’s likely tons of hidden traits/properties that even the designers/builders/discoverers/creators didn’t know were there. Mandelbrot found that out. The passengers of Aloha Airlines flight 243 found that out. Some of the people watching Black Sabbath perform War Pigs in Paris on December 20th of 1970 may have found that out too.
^Black Sabbath – “War Pigs” Live Paris 1970^
Lessee…where’d we leave off? I think I inadvertently mentioned SoPi-M at the end of the last one, but I’m not quite ready for that one. I am kinda ready for SoPi-O tho. And where I left off was kinda on the topic of finding your way when and where you are lost. Recognizing you are lost is a biggie. Denial is….well…not always advisable. In aviation, denial can get you killed…rapidly. Hence, “The Three C’s”:
It’s that simple. Climb, because your radio will have a greatly increased range at higher altitudes, and “broadcasting in the blind” is more likely to be heard by someone irrespective of where they are. Confess, because you are in deep shit, and those who might be able to help you are going to need the straight dope in order to accurately advise you how to best proceed, in order to get out of whatever mess you are in. Comply, because someone else giving you instructions and navigating/thinking for you is going to allow you to focus on the “The Three Rules Of Flying”:
1. Fly the airplane
2. Fly the airplane
3. Fly the airplane
Don’t sweat navigation, don’t sweat proper radio communication procedures, don’t sweat the regs, don’t sweat any of the ancillary types of thinking, just fly the fucking plane. You can loop back to all that other stuff when you get your head straight and find your bearings. The objective at this point is to get the fucking plane on the ground without leaving a smoking crater.
^Queens Of The Stone Age – 3’s & 7’s^
You don’t know this, but as of this writing, I’ve not finished drawing the O iterations of SoPi. That’s why I appear to be rambling about unrelated shit. But this is the stuff that I’m thinking about as I run the design of SoPi-O in my head over and over.
Where it may be applicable,
where it may not be applicable,
where really fucking odd uses present themselves.
Shit like that
Not much different than the redneck types of videos where the objective is to “do this and see what happens”. Some even go so far as to investigate why these things happen in the ways they do. I guess all discovery is like that.
^Masters Of Reality – She Got Me( When She Got Her Dress On) Official Vid^
As you can prolly tell by now, SoPi-O is an exploration of the decision-making processes we devise, under whatever auspices, when we are more likely to think independently, when we are more likely to think cooperatively, etc..
Pretty basic stuff really
But I’m trying to find my own path, and find my own way on my own path, so I guess it could be said that I’m being a selfish prick on this path to enlightenment. No matter how many outside sources I point to, no matter how many points of inspiration I reference, and no matter how much of this nonsense I share, I’m still likely to be viewed as a selfish prick trying to grab everything for himself. I considered using “themselves” at the end of the previous sentence instead of “himself”, but I didn’t. Too plural.
Not selfish enough
^Rush – La Villa Strangiato^
The I that is me,
The me that is we,
The we that is me,
The me that is I.
The above is something I’ve tossed around for a while, and really just trying to explore it a little more visually as I explore Pi, and the SoPi concept that I’ve kinda built around the concept of Pi. The “So” part is the contact point I guess. “So! Let talk about Pi!” That’s where this mess started. Taking a lot of existing junk, and creating some new junk with it. The main thing being, time. Considerations given to time and measure(s) from the perspective of an outsider…me. But in that nonsense at the start of this paragraph, where did “I” come from? Me? We?
^Space Project – Beyond Orion^
Maybe whoever interacts with us, and from which direction they come, is indicative of how we are likely to respond? Gotta take time into account tho. We build ourselves into becoming jaded old sad-sacks over time. Withdrawn, distant, cold, unreceptive, closed-off.
^Poison Idea “The Badge”^
Maybe there’s sometimes patterns within patterns that can help us better decide when we’re being egocentric, when we’re in a transitional state, and when we’re being selfless. Maybe not. Gonna be lots of opinions both inside and out as to what state(s) we are in.
^Immaculate “Wrecking Crew” (Live Overkill Cover)^
I just thought it might be advantageous to you, the reader, to see how some of this shit comes together. SoPi-O-000 (the first one) is just some letters/words in various font sizes to fit into these weaving and bulging and thinning shapes I’ve been thinking about. Kind of a cross between the weaving structure of DNA or threads, with some eyes for seeing embedded within. Something capable of both seeing, and being seen.
Q: You think it impossible for something to be capable of seeing and being seen?
And I’m talking about those somethings beyond the concepts of eyes or what we typically associate with seeing/being seen. Things like what we feel. And maybe even what feel in the absence of any perceptible input, nor any secondary indicators as to why we are feeling what we are feeling.
^Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis “Slowly Rot With Esclerosis Under Of Endocrinology”^
Maybe confusion is sometimes provocation for continuance? Further exploration? Exploration along unknown or even non-extent paths? Take for example some of the concepts that are explored in this series me and Roob started watching last night called “The Code”.
I’ve watched it several times. But like most sciences, there’s this prevailing “order out of chaos” type of mentality that seems to completely ignore the transitional and/or transient states. Someone is at “A”, looking for “B”, and the bullshit that is going to help you get there (“C”) is irrelevant. Gotta keep in mind tho, that I/we are looking backwards. The creators are looking forwards.
I – Looking backwards to see forwards.
They – Looking forwards to see backwards.
I guess it depends on the point of entry. There’s certainly a merging going on there.
11 iterations of SoPi-O, to get to the actual SoPi-O base, and three base iterations/permutations of SoPi-O. I admit that this particular result isn’t exactly where I originally saw myself winding up, but when I saw how related “M” was to “O”, they kinda meshed. And I’ll get to “SoPi-M” soon. It’s based on a geometric figure that I learned to draw when I was in elementary school. It’s quite cool. Anyway, let’s add a 12 iteration of SoPi-O, and see what we can see.
