Missive From ‘Merica: SoPi & The Many Small Whirls Interpretation

Interesting remote viewing with Cade last night. First the Okie Devil of Text US and I espied The Code

*The language of the Universe, Clicky… /lights up… Like a refresher course for those that got a B for O Level Maffs in 1983…*

… Then we surveyed another documentary called Six Degrees of Separation…

bacon kevin bacon

*Yep… /drags… Network Theory and Small Worlds. Basically logistics… /plumes smoke… Funny how they only mentioned ‘synchronicity’ once, but catalogue ‘coincidence’ a shitload of times…*

… Before finally taking a peek at ‘The Slow Mo Guys’ latest video of them making a cup of tea…

*The chaotic language of synchronicity, Clicky… /smokes…*

That’s my Many Small Whirls Interpretation. Now Cade’s SoPi, the latest iteration SoPi-O, conceived on the 15th May 2019 and delivered to you, Dear Reader, a week later. See you at the bottom for a Song. Enjoy! ❤

I’m looking over…my dead dog Rover,

That I over ran with the mower.

One leg is missing,

The other, is gone,

The other one is laying, all over, the lawn.

There’s no use explaining,

The one remaining,

Is hanging on the kitchen..doooooor!

Lost = Found

Guess it’s just a matter of time.

^I’m Looking over a Four Leaf Clover^

Nothing goes here, cept for this.

Someone is slamming the back door repeatedly.

Perhaps I should go look.

It’s possible the house is being broken into.

In the middle of the day.

By some loud motherfuckers.

If I don’t come back, know that I loved you.

Or hated you.

Or had no opinion of you.

According to the BibleGateway website, “six hundred” appears 34 times in the NIV translation of the Bible. The word “six” appears 219 times. The word “sixty” appears 36 times.

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.

Serendipity

Lateral Thinking

^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”:

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 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?

/shrug
^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.

^John Otway – Beware of the Flowers^

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

Did you know that in the word “lots”, you only need flip the order of the “t” and “s” to get lost?

Let's go faster
^Staind – Mudshovel (Official Video)^

But speaking of lost, I think you need to get there.

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.

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.

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.

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!)

Suddenly…I feel like the character from the movie “What Women Want”. I’m wearing pantyhose lined with panty-liners and/or maxi-pads around the house, all day, just to make $30.

“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.

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.

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.

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?
