Missive From ‘Merica: Covid Cosmic Thinking

Hello there, Dear Reader. Glad you could join us…

*That’s rude… /lights up…*

*No, we are not well and truly fucked, Clicky… /drags… Okay, maybe the French are… /streams smoke…*

… For a brand new missive from Cade Fon Apollyon, the Text Us Okie Devil. He and I were thoroughly engrossed in remote viewing Carl Sagan’s late 70s ‘Cosmos’ TV series at the we kenned. Although physically we’re caught up in our countries respective lockdowns, our thinking was/is free to travel unhindered…

*Sumfin’ like that…*

… and the same is true for you, Dear Reader, if you think about it 😉 Enjoy! ❤

What say we stretch our legs a bit? O wait, exercise is suddenly forbidden. I guess the Religion of Health Healthiness and The Healthy is gonna take a blow thanks to these recent developments. Gonna have to make some adjustments to existing exercise regimens, and you can bet there are people working on such plans as you read this. Gyms and spas are festering septic tanks of disease. Running is out, walking is out, being out is out, but on the upside, dogshit piles in public places is likely to be much diminished. Massage therapy is out, touch therapy is out, dating is out, prostitution is out, public gatherings are out, sports are out, and I guess pretty much any and every therapy and activity is out unless it has been much scrutinized, sterilized and approved. Sounds clean.

Q: What about next year?

A: ¿ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ?

“The flu” is a seasonal thing. This nCoV-2019 thingie appears to have cropped up/been released into the wild sometime between late October and early December, and that’s well within the range of what we here would consider the normal time to start catching the flu. So, now that this thing IS in the wild, Spring is now here and potentially could aid in this thing burning off/losing steam via the season change(s), I’m wondering about next year’s “flu season”. Like is this thing gonna pop up again next fall/winter, and are those in command are gonna shut everything down and lock everyone in prior to the holiday season?

Also concerned about our friends down in the southern hemisphere. It’s just turning fall there as we here transition to spring. Wondering now if this is likely to result in some odd mutations which may allow this thing to stay prevalent year-round. Global travel will resume at some point. It has to. Everything in our economies depends on it. Thinking a bit now how this new little gizmo can be used to get things moving and keep things moving in the direction(s) that the Bilderbergs want it to go. I mean, that’s who is running all this shiz, right? They own everything, are responsible for everything, are behind everything that happens, so whatever happens from here is all their fault.

Gotta wonder if it is inappropriate for me to date an alien. I mean, I know its OK to pursue aliens of various types, in various ways because all kinds of people do that for myriads of reasons. But I’m wondering if it’s OK if I hook up with an alien. I have no idea why I’m asking your opinion on what’s best for me and my future alien girlfriend.

^Underworld – Born Slippy (Alma & Mater Edit)^

Reading through that Wikipedia article on ‘Law Of Identity’, and was thinking about the “a rose is a rose” bit as I read, and it occurs to me that “rose” is only one side of the story.

 Our side

Rose

We named it. We observed it and documented all of its/their features. Pretty much no thought put into what we are in relation to a rose. There also appears to be no thought given to what a rose thinks of us, nor what a rose thinks of what we think of them. But why would we give any thought to such things. A rose has no voice. It cannot communicate with us in any way, shape or form.

Q: Could wearing a hat which contains a logo on it be considered “taking a mark on one’s forehead”?

A: ¿? ~°╗0╔°~ ?¿

I’ve always wondered what they meant in the Bible by “taking the mark of the beast on their foreheads” or whatever, and someone recently gave me a toboggan with a giant-assed “Las Vegas” logo on it. Got me to wondering if, by wearing this hat with this logo, I was willfully putting a mark on my forehead. Will prolly be microchips in hats at some point (if there aren’t already). Lots of ways other than microchips to use hats as an identifying mark tho.

How bout a new iteration of SoPi?

One of the problems that I keep stumbling onto regarding The Big Bang is that there was/is only one, and that one happened once. Not to mention, that if this one big bang did in fact happen, and we are the sum total, this bang is still happening, and we are in fact not the sum total. “A” sum total, sure, but not “the” sum total.

Anyway, one of the things that I’ve long pondered is why I can go above “1” on the periodic table of elements, but I cannot go below “1”. Another thing that has bothered me is why certain things have no representation. They don’t exist. Not here anyway.

Q: Can they?

A: ? !!!VAGUERY!!! ?

Humans have evolved to the point where certain things which do not exist/occur naturally here on Earth/Terra can be created synthetically. But some stuff?

Nope. Not yet anyway

So thinking with respect to this big bang that is said to have occurred 13.7 or so billion years ago, there have been times when a something not only did not exist, it could not exist. No yet anyway. This makes me think a bit about extinct species, and causes me to correlate when certain organic and inorganic matter exists. Makes me wonder if maybe there are certain frequencies embedded within the fabric of the space and time(s) that we know, and that makes me wonder if certain things have their own period(s).

^Svreca – Ebisu (Dasha Rush Remix) [SEMANTICA44.2]^

sopi-u_002

Yeah…anti-elements. That’s kinda what I’m thinking about. Some pre-matrix or post-matrix something that allows or prohibits a something from existing. And I’m not thinking in terms of universal standards either. Way too much weird and rarefied shit going on out there that is quite localized. Basically, I’m wondering if there is something embedded within nature which allows certain things to exist or certain events to occur under certain conditions, and maybe also prohibits certain things from existing or certain events from occurring under any conditions. Sounds pretty straightforward, right? A given. All we need do is figure out what those conditions are, allowing us to create those conditions, then we can do whatever it is we need/want to do.

Q: Why do nuclear detonations contain fire?

A: I've honestly never pondered this

I assume the naturally occurring hydrogen is burning and oxygen along with it, but you’re usually talking about extraordinarily small amounts of “fuel” powering these devices, and there’s really no secondary anything in the device to burn. High explosives don’t really create fire, this isn’t Napalm, incendiary devices start fires in existing infrastructure(s), and this isn’t Hollywood using diesel or gasoline to intentionally create fireballs. So how in the hell does 50 pounds of Plutonium create a fireball? I need to look that up or something.

Just trying to brainstorm a bit with respect to how the galactic and/or universal regulatory agency/agencies may work. In my mind, I’m kinda using vice and vices as a model. Specifically, tobacco, alcohol and drugs. A nice mix seeing as how alcohol can be made by just about anyone, tobacco can be grown by just about anyone, and drugs can be made by just about anyone. And yet, someone else has stepped in and said “OH NO YOU DON’T!!!”. Crashed the party because they want some of the action and/or don’t want someone intruding on their own action. I can see a galactic community maybe doing something similar. More than that, I have to wonder of the Universe itself may have some embedded something which does similar and expresses itself in various ways. Maybe even does so by not expressing itself at all.

‘Tis strange to contemplate the concept of having a knowledge of something that has never existed.

Even more strange to contemplate not only having knowledge of something that has never existed, but also to actively work towards prohibiting this something from ever existing.

I guess you can relate more easily regionally. Like, they may smoke crack in their house, but no one has ever smoked crack in this house, and they never will.

But in thinking in terms of being within the mind of a universal creator, thinking of things that could exist, but you adopt a position of “not on my watch”. Radioactive flying snake goats, for example.

Who the hell needs radioactive flying snake goats?

Well, besides science-fiction authors…they might could make use of radioactive flying snake goats.

Actually, was watching the Cosmos series earlier with a friend, and got to thinking about the orientation of Uranus relative to the rest of the planets. Sagan got to talking about Astrology, mentioned Mars’ influence on himself (or lack thereof) at the time of his own birth, and it got me to thinking about Uranus’ unusual orientation and Pluto’s unusual orbit. Since Astrology seems to be little more than sequencing (to me it does anyway), I got to thinking about that little swirl atop a soft-serve ice cream cone. Sagan had mentioned at some point that if anything ever hit Jupiter, it would simply make a hole in the clouds of Jupiter. Cosmos originally aired in 1980, and thanks to Comet Shoemaker/Levy, we now know this “hole in the clouds” idea not to be so.

Sagan also refers to Pluto as a planet, and we all know that Pluto is in fact not a planet as it has been demoted to…not a planet. What does all this add up to? Well…

SoPi-T, of course
^Melleefresh / Something Inside Me Redux (Original Mix)^

Have thought a bunch about the need to “demote” a planet from the planet category. The only two things I can think of are A) hype, B) commercialism and C) commerce.

That's three things, but who's counting

Anyway, I tend to thing of “ordering” in terms of navigation. Knowing where a something is or where a something will be provides us a pathway to plot intercepts to that something. Pluto is a pain in the ass because sometimes it’s going to be the 9th planet, and sometimes it’s going to be the 8th planet. Delete Pluto from the planetary register, and Uranus can remain firmly entrenched in the 8th spot without having to do-si-do with Pluto. Kinda makes sense. Unless you’re inbound to Sol on the solar plane instead of outbound from Sol. I may lose some of you here if you are unfamiliar with Pluto’s unusual orbit relative to our sun and the other planets.

Ever listen to an expert talking about a something, but this expert sounds like a fucking moron? So which is it? Are they an expert? Or a moron? Someone gave them the expert title just so this person can prove how they don’t deserve the title.

Or it could be there's maybe just some distance between the two of you?

No idea if the space agencies of the world already have existing planetary charts which reorient the numbering of the planets relative to their position of Earth/Terra and/or Sol, but I do know that most science doesn’t appear to put any effort into explaining that Earth/Terra is not always “third stone from the sun”. Not only that, there’s apparently no effort put into explaining that Earth/Terra is sometimes both first rock, and the only rock…1 of 1. Depending on your approach/departure of course. So in that regard, why are the planets not renumbered according to their current placement and orientation within the scope of time?

A: Fear of Astrology

That’s honestly the only thing I can come up with. Religion on religion warfare. Science Vs. Every Other Religion, with a special hate of Astrology. Odd that “mathematics” is said to be the language of science, yet it is utilized only in ways that suits the monks and their methods. Destroying the very portal which allowed you to get to where you are.

^Marco Shuttle – Kinshasa Decadence [EE12]^

Numbers are failing here. “From” is our only perspective. From Sol to Infinity, all from the perspective of 3. Which makes me wonder, that if we were to apply Pi to our solar system, with Sol being “the point”, when and where would Earth/Terra be “3”? Which must be why I’m thinking that accurate mapping/charting of any system would require 360° mapping of all approaches and departures on all three axis, with consideration for a time axis along each physical axis in order to accurately calculate the numeric value of a planet or other body.

And yes, not distance, time

I would think that time would need to supersede distance(s) in order to better identify anything anomalous. Thinking this might also better assist with course alterations. Prolly doesn’t make much sense, but I’m basically stretching Pi in multiple directions relative to an object, and not just and only “around” a round object. Gonna be all kinds of crazy shapes in space, I would think.

A New York doctor’s story: ‘Too many people are dying alone’

Shitloads of people dying alone is nothing new.

^A Certain Kind Of Death – Documentary^

My question is, what does she think should be done about this? I’m sure it involves creation of a process and processes which include(s) delegation. The doctor orders, others comply. If it really bothers you that much, don’t delegate, do. I know…you’re a doctor…far too busy to give care…you’ve got other patients to get to.

Q: Has it ever occurred to you that some people may want to die alone?

A: ó¿ó

There may even be people out there who don’t want to die alone, realize they pretty much have no choice but to die alone, so dying alone is how it’s gonna be. All that said, it just occurs to me that if you create a system, instead of being the system, this something you create loses all of its heart.

One of the more interesting things that Sagan has demonstrated in this Cosmos series is the use of mirrors to demonstrate infinity. Interesting in that it got me to thinking about my own experimentation(s) with mirrors whilst pondering the concept of an end to the iterations being reflective of an end to time. What I mean by that is, if you place yourself between two mirrors, you expect to see infinite reflections in these mirrors, and yet…the iterations stop. You start to count, and you only see sat 5 or ten reflections, and then nothing.

Black

Or maybe even white or some other color. Maybe even a clear something that is nothing.

Q: Would the end of infinite reflections in a mirror be indicative of the end of time?

A: !!!! ?¿ !!!!

More than that, would the end of infinite reflection in a mirror possibly be indicative of a certain location not only in time, but space? Perhaps you are at some unknown end of a solar system. Or maybe nearing the edge of a galaxy. Perhaps too close to a black hole or a quasar or some other celestial body. Maybe even be that you are approaching the end(s) of the Universe. Or, “a” universe. Makes me wonder too about approaches. Like, do we race to the end, or does “the end” race to us. Maybe we meet halfway? A dog can only run so far into the forest.

/shrug
^Mike Parker – Lustration Two (Nor’easter) (A2)^

I gotta take that thought further aloud because I’m thinking them. Primarily, mirrors might should be standard equipment on any/all spacecraft. Perhaps even a chamber full of mirrors casting infinite reflections so as to be indicative of any warping, blurring or distortions in what should otherwise be exactly what we expect to see. This is based on Sagan talking about looking for gaps (red-shift/blue-shift) in order to determine if an object is moving towards or away from your present position. But what about…

Rainbow Shift?

Or even White Shift? Black Shift? More than that, Purple Shift where something may appear to be moving both towards and away at the same time? Wouldn’t this possibly be indicative of a something that is actually moving faster than C/speed of light?

I gotta also wonder about “less standard” types of binary, tertiary, quaternary, etc. shifts. For example, what if red and green are shifting? Lastly, what about ultraviolet or infrared shift(s). Radio? X-ray and gamma? Null or maybe zero shift(s)? A shift should exist in some space, but it does not. There have to be some dark shifts lurking out there. Perhaps even some happening right here.

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.

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”:

Climb

Confess

Comply

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 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?

A: ?¿?

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”.

Fantastic series

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.

 Digress

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.

The ordering in the center is modified to I-WE-ME. Interesting. Maybe sometimes circumstance dictates a different approach?

Missive From ‘Merica: Return Of The One Won Wanderer

X: It’s been a while.

Cade: Indeed it has.

X: What have you been up to?

Cade: Not much. Yourselves?

T: Cute.

0: Yeah…real cute wiseguy.

Cade: Thanks.

X: Don’t mention it.

Q: Where’s “B” been lately?

Cade: I think a better question would be…who in the hell are you?

X: Doesn’t feel right, does it?

Cade: No, not really.

0: Maybe that’s what happens when you let something sit in your head for too long.

Cade: It’s possible. But just because something pops into my head doesn’t mean I need to write it down.

Z: Any other current examples you can list to relate?

Cade: SoPi J.

Z: Been stewing on that one for a while?

Cade: Yes I have.

Z: And what have you come up with?

Cade: Well, SoPi K came along last night, so I think I’m going to skip SoPi J for now, and maybe talk about SoPi K a bit…try and flesh it out.

Z: Do you think that’s a good idea?

Cade: 😦

X: Why do you think that a certain something might not feel right?

Cade: The first time that you wander into a new environment as a kid, your eyes are likely to boggle as you marvel in wonder at the unknown/never before seen.

T: Can you think of an example?

0: Yeah. Give us an example 😉

Cade: A department store.

C: Anything else pop into that head of yours as to an example?

Cade: Yeah…The Colosseum scene from Gladiator.

Z: When all of Proximo’s gladiators see it for the first time?

Cade: That’s the one. Juba says, “I did not know men could build such things.”

X: And what about subsequent visits?

Cade: I think the wonder and awe is likely still there, but it’s been constrained a bit.

Z: Constrained by rules and regulations.

Cade: True that. Loads and loads of rules, regulations, constraints, weight limits, size limits…everything has been qualified and quantified.

Z: Just takes us a while to learn and understand the hows and whys behind the system and systems that created this new environment…is that what you are saying?

Cade: Something like that.

X: Do you think such knowledge crushes the glow of that initial awe and wonder?

Cade: It certainly can.

A: Overwhelming the overwhelmed…that’s quite the concept to ponder.

Cade: Indeed it is.

X: Has anything in particular overwhelmed you lately?

Cade: To quote “T” here…”Let’s talk about that.”

X: Good show.

Cade: I guess time will tell.

T: …

*Nice one, Clicky! So much better than going with a department store opening… /lights up… *

Ah, there you are, Dear Reader. As you can see, the Okie Devil of Text US – Cade Fon Apollyon – has sent a brand spanking, new missive through to the LoL…

…#111 to be exact, and I for one am looking forward to finding out what SoPi J & K are all about…

*Ah, but did you know Elvis played at the Coliseum, Clicky? …/drags…*

*If you say so…/plumes smoke…*

So yeah, let’s us talk about that. And what is “that” you may ask? Welp, my own personal method is to get a vague idea as to what I want to write about, then just let it develop as I actually type. That’s why I tend not to edit things as I go, leave mistakes in grammar/spelling and the like, and not fear looking like an idiot when I know that I’m going out on a limb. If I edit out all of the chaff and rough bits and whatnot, there’s no indication to the reader as to what went into the rock tumbler in order to get the rocks shiny. Not suggesting that I don’t have my own “trade secrets” so to speak, because I do…I just tell you what they are.

EX: Much of my writing includes concepts about talking to strangers and/or people that I don’t know. Animals, gods, ghosts, demons/angels, aliens, Artificial Intelligences, girls, angry neighbors, etc..

X: lolz…wait a minute here…did you just equate “girls” with gods, ghosts, aliens and angry neighbors?

Cade: Girls are weird.

X: /shakes head and laughs.

0: Carry on dude.

Cade: K 😛

I sometimes have trouble speaking with others. Mainly, I think this is because I am sometimes expected to say something, but I cannot because I have nothing to say. In this and these instances, my not having anything to say is viewed as something lacking on my part, or perhaps even a failure of some kind. But my thinking is, that if you say something to me, and expect me to say something back, why don’t you just have the conversation all on your own, and leave me out of the discussion entirely.

I don’t need someone prompting me to get the answers you want, in the way you want them…it’s likely gonna end badly for everyone. So yeah, I try and avoid being bound by pride in my writing, and just let my writing flow as best I can. I may not get anywhere, but someone else may be able to learn something.

And what is the P-51 Mustang you might ask?

Before I get to SoPi K, here’s something that I just stumbled across on IMGUR called “Sacred Geometry – Vector Set”.

There are four sets of different shapes, each shape has it’s own name, and the whole mess is Copyright © 2016 | http://www.skyboxcreative.com.

So, this is a single image, that contains four sets of shapes, and each set of shapes contains nine individual shapes for a total of thirty-six individual shapes…all in one image. Let’s get back to our department store with the boggly-eyed kid, who is seeing a department store for the first time. And let us use this sacred geometry as a representation of our department store.

There are some people that have likely never heard of the concept of “sacred geometry”. I know that I had never heard of it, and then I did hear about it, saw it, and now I know a little bit about what it is and what it can be said to be representative of. So let’s us wander off to a show that was on HBO years ago called Carnivàle.

Carnivàle

In this show, the concept of “management” is a prevalent theme. I’ve thought about that concept quite a bit, and especially as it relates to “knowing”.

Q: Do you know who manages our planet?

A: ¿?¿?¿?¿?¿

Yeah…tough question. And via the damnedest of methods, it occurred to me one day to ponder the concept of…”ownership”.

Management and Ownership as it relates to our planet. 

It’s likely that we can relate better to ownership than we can to management. Management is always in a state of flux. But ownership is absolute. Prolly why it’s so vague and so thin in most instances. The scramble of management buzzing around what is and is not owned, and by whom. Let’s mix in some Lucifer and God in that image of ownership/management, and we’ll just leave it there and let you stew on it. Actually, add Brahma and Shiva in there with God and Lucifer. I’ve been thinking about those two a lot lately.

^Slowdive – Sugar for the Pill (Official Video)^

Let’s continue the detour so we can stay on target…

Dupuytren’s Contracture

Gout

Let’s stop there for a second, and pull a blurb from that second Wikipedia article…

‘Gout was historically known as “the disease of kings” or “rich man’s disease”.

I wonder how that came about? There’s a mention that gout has been known to be around since the time of the Ancient Egyptians, and there’s also something there about gout being more common in those who drink beer.

^DWIG – Orange Evening (LUL007)^

This guy Legiron has a book called “Fear The Witch (for it is you)”, and I gotta admit that the first time I heard of this book, I couldn’t help but smile a bit. Clever title and, to me anyway, it speaks a lot to the Alchemists of the now who seem to try and get away from the more erm…”mystical”….types of associations that go along with brewing and concocting all kinds of crazy shit.

Enter a dude named...Thoth.

Thoth

Now, if I were to mention a certain…erm…”ceremony” right now, and this ceremony was a balancing of hammers upon a stone, and these balanced hammers on this stone would then be reviewed by the master? That may not mean much to you. Hell, it may not mean anything to you. But it means something to me.

^Deadmau5 – Clockwork (1080p) || HD^

OH!!! And did I mention…these hammers that are balanced on this stone, welp, the stone they are balanced upon, is itself, balanced atop another stone. So yeah, a stone, balanced atop another stone, and the hammers are then balanced upon the balanced stone. Quite the metaphor for accuracy with respect to builders and building…eh? Welp, if you consider that this same ceremony was performed prior to the start of construction, and the mass and shape of these hammers was calculated at that time.

Yes, I just suggested that part of this process included calculating the shape, mass/density of these hammers prior to use, then calculated again after use.

Q: Do you think hammer manufacturers of today calculate the number of atoms in a hammer prior to use, and the number of atoms contained in the same hammer after use?

A: ?!!!?

It’s doubtful, but possible.

I wonder if they would if they could.

Not only that, but what if they could track each and every atom that comes off of that/those hammers, and trace where they went?

You think anyone would be interested in such a thing?

Certainly might help in other areas.

Sorry…got a bit choked up there.

Short of nulling them off, do you think it possible for someone to forget their scars?

I wonder if there is any connection there. Elective surgery is also quite popular these days. Deadly, but popular.

This subject came up last night.

Garage Door

Not sure what else to say about it right now, other than day before yesterday, I cut my fingernails for the first time in a month, and there’s not a single fingertip that isn’t sore as fuck. Lots of hangnails that are spinning and spiraling off the nails like coil-springs that were previously under tension, and are now whirling around seeking a new center after I cut my nails.

That likely sounds improbable, and maybe even impossible, but I watch my nails and have been watching them for quite some time. The fingers do all kinds of things, and this “new world” of ours has lots of things in it that have changed the dynamics of how the fingers move/what they do.

^Vini Vici – Expender^

There appears to have been another purge on Twitter recently. The odd thing is, that from two different unrelated sources, two different Twitter users claim to have lost around twenty (20) followers.

Q: Why is everyone focused on their followers?

A: ¿¿¿

In the 1.5 years that I’ve been more or less actively participating on/in Twitter, I’ve never heard anyone say…

”DAMN! I LOST 20 PEOPLE I WAS FOLLOWING TODAY!!!”

I wonder what’s up with that? I mean, I’m only following 116 people, but I can pretty much tell you why I followed each and every one of them. Not only that, I notice when certain people that I follow stop tweeting and/or their tweets seem to disappear. One recent such example was/is a gal who I had only recently started following, and she turns up a month later with cancer.

😦

There are many people that I follow that I’d like to drop a line to occasionally and just say…

“hey, haven’t seen you around much, hope you are OK.”

…and sometimes I do just that. Like this one gal that posts a lot of “earthy/witchy” photos that are pretty cool. She comes and goes, and I’ve dropped her a line once to just say hey, but people seem to get creeped out by that for some reason. I mean, are you REALLY worried about your followers? Like…really really worried about them? Or are they just some number that should be silent and compliant in sitting in your followers queue.

Just sayin'.
^Swedish House Mafia – Greyhound – Extended Video Remix HD^

Hell…there’s a guy that I follow on Twitter that is dead. Yeah…the motherfucker died not long ago. I don’t expect to see any tweets from him anytime soon, but I’m sure as shit not going to unfollow the poor bastard just because he died. I mean…not too anxious to follow him either…if you know what I mean…but yeah.

I have no clue what I’m trying to say here.

Nothing against them, just am where I am.

Plus, I had a pretty big something happen in my life about a month ago.

Scared me.

Scared me bad.

So...where do I start?

Craigslist is infested with data/information leeches and scammers, newspapers are going to require me to subscribe and/or pay. I don’t trust Monster nor Dice since they’ve gone through so many acquisitions that I don’t even know who they are anymore, so…where do I start?

The Best Search Engines of 2018

Blech!

Let’s take a step backwards, start from the beginning, and find out what I can do.

I know how to operate a cash register and have worked at jobs handling cash.

I know logistics and have warehouse experience.

I know how to fuel airplanes.

I know customer support, have done help desk, desktop support and phone support.

I know technical writing.

I know software development and programming…

 but I haven't done it in forever.

I’m gonna stop there, because what I really need is an old copy of my resume, and I currently have no way of getting to it since it’s sitting on the hard drive of a computer that doesn’t work anymore. Hell, it may be gone forever if the hard drive doesn’t work.

Fuck this noise 😦
^depeche mode – work hard (1983)^

Let’s share what I’ve seen on Craigslist lately…

Resistance/Liberal Contributors Wanted For New Humor Site

No pay – “Exposure” only.

😦

We need readers

They don’t want me to respond via Craigslist? Seems shady, but $16-$32 a day to read books? I could likely read 2-4 books a day quite easily. But then I have to write a review and, since I’m being paid, that means that I’ll be gleaning the turds for peanuts in order to find something remotely palatable to write about. I mean, they are going to want positive reviews, kind words, shit that sells books: no one wants a paid reviewer shitting atop their shit pile. That would be an ex-cess-ively shitty mess.

PC Gamers: we’re looking for writers

This appears to be another non-paying gig, and I’m going to have to spend untold hours playing a game that might suck-ass. Then I’ve got to review it. But what if the game is good, but I’m terrible at it? Would that make for a good review?

“HEY! THIS GAME IS AWESOME! But I suck at it.”

Immediate openings for P/T writing positions – Top Pay ($30/hr!)

“Staying fresh in the workplace.”

…she says. Since when is there even a line between the home and the workplace? Go to your bathroom, take a gander around, and you are likely to see more logos and advertisements than you would see on a 15 minute drive in an urban area, even if the radio is on.

Go to your kitchen. Take a gander at your appliances. Open the fridge. Open the pantry. Advertisements and advertising have LONG invaded the home via more than just television and radio. So I would argue that “staying fresh in the workplace” really isn’t that difficult. Not to mention that “keeping up” is just more advertising for more revenue streams. Certifications aren’t free, nor is the process of getting them.

Let's abandon this ship. 

It’s long since sailed.

^TOTAL IDIOTS AT WORK^
Let's go with recent experience to start...

Recent Experience: Thinking. Writing. More thinking. Blabbing nonsense on Twitter with a few friends.

And yep...more thinking.

SoPi-H

Q: Can magnetics be used to focus?

A: Ever heard of a compass?

Simple.

NO!

I mean within the mind.

Within the body.

Q: What tools do we have available to us in order to better navigate our daily challenges better?

A: Time. Can't do jack shit without the time to do it in.

But you gotta keep some things in mind.

Bird Migration

Birds seem to know where to go, how long to stay there, when to go somewhere else, and where to go. So let’s stretch that out a bit. Let’s stretch it out say…over the course of a spring/summer/fall.

Spring is coming. You are a bird that migrates up north as the weather warms. However, back at the place you just left – unbeknownst to you – some contractor just started a new project to build town homes over the next 6-8 months. When August/September rolls around, and you begin your journey all the way back to your wintering grounds, you’ve no idea that when you get there, your home is going to be gone.

Fucking squatters.
^Missy Elliott – Work It (Official Video)^

SO!!! How do we navigate our own minds within and without? Visualization sometimes helps. But most of the more modern tools are too linear, and most of the old “mysteries” kinds of things are too static or vague. I need something more fluid. Less rigid, but solid.

Solid like air. Solid like water.

Everything is contextual with fluids. Go fast enough? Air will burn you like a charcoal briquette, and water will break every bone in your body. And yet… a breeze at the right time is like a cuddle from the sweetest of lovers, and a splash of water at the right time can cool and refresh. I’m not trying to invent a steering wheel for the soul; there are PLENTY of fucks willing to tell you what to do with that thing.

Nope, this is more about how spirit and mind get us through the things we encounter. We like to think that almost everything is either positive or negative; good or bad; right or wrong; correct or incorrect; but it’s all those things. Hence, I think we spend most of our time in a state of indifference.

EX: Buy/Don’t buy. Sell/don’t sell. Walk/don’t walk. Run/don’t run.

We don’t like to think of ourselves as indifferent because it seems too wishy-washy. And yet…

decisions, decisions, decisions.

So yeah, indifference…we hang out there a lot methinks. Our secret lover.

^Fifth Harmony – Work from Home ft. Ty Dolla $ign^

Drawing this shit from the hip, and not trying to be so goddamn perfect, sometimes aptly displays why I’m not always “all about shit lining up perfectly” or according to some rigid set(s) of specifics. As the perspective changes, so does the outlook on “what lines up…and what don’t”.

EX: SoPi-H_03 doesn’t look so bad. However, when you turn it 90° to make SoPi-H_04? Yeah…the wonkyness is MUCH more apparent.

The personification of indifference with respect to decision making.

The “defect” was always there, you just had to approach from the correct angle/perspective in order to see it. It looked great here, but not so much later. So if you’ve attached your anchor to a certain principle, what happens when you take a look at that principle from another angle?

Q: Are you locked in?

A: !!!

It’s like finding a defect in clothing after you already purchased it, removed all the tags, you wear it for the first time, and you or someone else notices something about the garment later. I mean the fucking thing looked just fine on the rack.

FUCK!!!

How in the HELL does something like this get past quality control at the place that manufactured it? Why would a retailer not check their own stock for defects prior to making it available for sell?

What I did there...do you see it?
