Adventures in Remote Viewing: Camera One, Camera Two…

Camera 1

Dear Reader, this week Lone Star Texas resident, Cade Fon Apollyon, and I, Essex seaside resider, have been remote viewing, together…

Deadwood: The Movie

The Limehouse Golem

The Animatrix

Titan A.E.

Chernobyl

Good Omens

And we decided to write a post about it. Together…

Remotely

*You fink Dear Reader will get the reference, Clicky? …/lights up and smokes…*

Here’s the Okie Devil now, to kick us off on this adventure.

Enjoy! ❤

Camera 2

Ever hear of a guy named Hisashi Ouchi? I went to high school with the dude. He was like a brother.

Those are lies

I don’t know Hisashi Ouchi at all, but it appears that someone named Hisashi Ouchi does in fact exist. Or, he did. I guess it depends on how you view who exists and how as to whether or not the guy still exists, and maybe even if he ever existed. Now, I know where I am going here kinda, so let us run over to Google real quick and see if Google has anything to say about some dead fuck named Hisashi Ouchi.

Tokaimura Nuclear Accident

That’s the very first Google result. No mention of Hisashi Ouchi.

But he's in the Wikipedia article

He’s also mentioned in this article from 9 October of 1999.

Japan’s worst nuclear accident leaves two fighting for life

So who the fuck is Hisashi Ouchi? Or rather, who was he? Just a corpse now. Prolly buried in a lead-lined coffin 30 feet underground and covered in cement, and just laying there being all radioactive and “festering in his own juices” as someone I used to know might say. But the person that would have said that is dead, too. I wonder if dead people get together and play cards. Have open-mic night, talent shows or community sings.

 Digress

Do you think it is possible for people to just…disappear? I wonder on what criteria we base “appearances” and “disappearances”. Convenience?

*Ouchi, Clicky. I’d guess if you had to get a message to ‘Death’, the living can’t deliver it but the… /smirks…*

There was a lot a death in what we viewed – death of people, populations, planet. And death of empires and innocence, ways of doing things. Beliefs…

IT Crowd Sign Language

*Awe ecosystems, Clicky… /snorts smoke…*

Dear Reader, Cade had sent me his next observation before I finished making this one. Something to bear in mind as we read on…

Camera 2

I admit that I’ve recently been intentionally…erm…”steering against the current”, as it pertains to the automation(s) of YouTube. I haven’t been actively doing it, just trying to be a bit unpredictable with what I watch, why, and for how long before I actively try and go off the rails, so to speak.

That said, there was an unusual appearance in my recommended last night. One about a disappearance. Five disappearances in one event actually. They’re now referred to as “The Yuba County Five”. Odd name considering the unbalanced equation that remains. Oh, and why this “Yuba County Five” is also referred to as “America’s Dyatlov Pass Incident”? The only thing that I can figure is…

metadata

Trying to connect unrelated things. Odd considering how “irrelevance” typically figures in to more “official” types of thinking/doing. Too much dependence on Occam and popular interpretations of shaving/cutting devices? After, not everything is equal.

Did I lose you there?

Don’t sweat it.

We’ll find you.

Despite all the death, there was an abundance of creation in our viewing, Dear Reader. Myths and Reputations. Structures and Relationships, creating and recreating Earth, ways of doing things…

*Aye, Clicky… /stubs butt… And beliefs…*

Now over to Cade for the finale to this post, Dear Reader. Let’s hope he has a Song…

Camera 2

Okie dokie RoobieDoobie, we’ve got two Dyatlovs providing various forms of passes, passages and passings, one Yuba, and we’ve got a bunch missing at various times + others gone. Let’s us see where these two Dyatlov connections are according to Google Maps.

Dyatlov Pass, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia, 624575 to Chornobyl, Kyiv Oblast, Ukraine

Wait…is it Chernobyl or Chornobyl? Or is it Wormwood? For some reason, “wormwood” always makes me think of pecans, and pecans always make me think of iodine. Is that a weird way to think? Is this a bad time to bring up the book of Numbers from The Bible and think about who we consider as “missing” and who we consider as “found”, and when?

Digress

Let’s see where Dyatlov Pass in Siberia is located relative to Yuba County Cali…for…ni…a.

Dyatlov Pass, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia, 624575 to Yuba City, California

I wish there was a way to add more than just an origin and destination. I guess if you are logged in to Google, you can pin multiple locations, and on the Google Maps mobile app you can add up to 9 destinations, but I can’t do that here. There’s also mention of Oroville in that Yuba 5 vid. Flows, dams, and containment vessels. Coincidence?

Q: Do you have to be alive to die?

A: Says who? 

The concept of “the deadman” has reared it’s head on many occasions over the past several years, but I honestly have no idea what “the deadman” is, nor what it represents. Not really a strange concept, just a foreign one to me in the current context. Lots of talk about dying and being reborn while you are still alive, so I wonder what death is.

Why is it always and forever so bitter?

Can the future tell me who I am?

Or is it telling me who I will be?

I guess I’m wondering what Elijah would have to say on the topic of transitioning from one plane to another without actually dying here. No connecting flights for Elijah. Non-stop all the way. What a ride that must be.

^Harrison BDP – Decompression^

BTW, I puked my guts up last night. I don’t think it had anything to do with acute radiation exposure in large quantities, but irrespective of the cause of my somewhat regular regurgitational proclivities, that tomato soup didn’t taste near as good coming back up as it did going down. Also, do I see a CCCP shirt in the background of that IT Crowd gif? What the fuck is a commie doing at a footer match in The UK?

Playing The Super Yachtery

Dear Reader, a super expensive superyacht was sunk last Sunday…

My Song, a 130-foot Baltic 130 Custom superyacht, owned by billionaire Pier Luigi Loro Piana, was in transport between the Spanish island of Mallorca and the Italian city of Genoa when a storm in the early hours of Sunday broke the yacht’s cradle on top of a cargo ship and plunged it into the sea, reported Yachting World.

*/lights upMEROVEE Frank in the Red universe put up a post about storms this week, Clicky… /drags… And it was only last Saturday… /streams smoke… That you were fucking up your piana comments in the Purple universe of MJ…*

A sinking superyacht sounds like a terrible waste, but this is the Library of Libraries, Dear Reader…

*That’s right, Clicky, saved within a library of libraries… /smokes… ‘appily wiv L Space to get out an’ about…*

Love a tome

*’cannot possibly be as large on the outside as they appear on the inside’… 😀 …*

…And the name of the logistics company transporting the superyacht, is Peters and May. Now, that sounds like something else that’ll be sinking irrevocably this coming Thursday…

*Well Jackboots already announced she’ll be resigning on the day after, Clicky, so she knows… /flicks ash… A Brexit Party win would be one in the eye for rabid Remaniacs… /stubs butt… I gno I’d LOL…

Dear Reader, have a Song 😉

Missive From ‘Merica: Loyalty Points?

*Pertinent, Clicky… /lights up… Probably Chemical Ali shouldn’t have bragged about voting for the team that beat his team on national telly, as the results were rolling in… /drags… Hey! He’s got the same birthday as me… /plumes smoke…*

*Oh good grief, he actually said that?*

*/smokes…*

Welcome to our mid holiday week offering at the LoL, Dear Reader 😀 Cade, the Okie Devil of Text US, has furnished us with a new missive on the subject of loyalty for your delectation…

Enjoy! ❤

*******

Loyalty
^Deadmau5 – My Pet Coelacanth (1080p) || HD^

‘Tis strange that I’ve been writing for almost 4 years non-stop, and I’ve not crossed paths with this concept. How in the hell does someone write about spirit and spiritual journeys and spiritualistic types of crap for 4 years, and not once directly encounter the concept of loyalty? Welp, in my case, it seems to have taken me pondering the concept of superiority (with a dash of ownership) and then writing a blog post about it, in order to bump into loyalty.

^Computer Data – Healing^
Umm...

I got a question. Like, what about when ravens are naughty or nice? Does that shit filter down through the human generations too? Is that why people hate/fear ravens? Makes you wonder if one mouse stealing once piece of cheese fucked things up for the rest of mice forever and ever. I guess if this the is case, it’s obvious that seagulls have LONG since given up on giving a single fuck what people think of them.

lol

Gulls aren’t known for having the best of table manners. That said, does legend and/or folklore have any effect on loyalty or loyalties? Myth?

^Depeche Mode – “But not tonight” extended mix (remastered)^

If the conservative political parties and/or conservative wings of political parties are in fact so powerful within British politics, how in the holy hell did The UK wind up with a nickname like “The Nanny State”? Conservative what? Socialists?

I was just sitting here wondering if that is the real difference between The US and The UK with respect to politics. All political parties in both countries are inherently socialistic, they just have different approaches. Different pathways to the same Utopia.

I saw a vid the other day on “populist” political leaders in Europe, and in it, someone made a comment about “direct democracy”. All I could think of was that “direct democracy” isn’t democracy at all. That got me to thinking about “The Nanny State”, which got me to wondering why the Tories/Conservative Party are considered to be the party to beat.

And when in the hell did being labeled “a Thatcherite” become a positive trait? I thought you Limeys hated the fuck outta her.

^Unexpected Wave Compilation (CRAZY!)^

Been pondering a movie I watched called “The House With A Clock In The Walls” for almost two days now. The movie wasn’t bad, but it certainly wasn’t good either. Based on my watching, this movie should have been good, so why wasn’t it?

Good characters, good story, good actors

Is it the witchcraft angle? Too metaphorical? Too much of a kid’s movie? That last one could be the kicker. I honestly couldn’t tell if this was A) a kid’s movie that was darkened a bit for the sake of parents, or B) an adult movie that was lightened to attract a more family audience.

^Kettenkarussell – Maybe^

Speaking of magic, a certain scythe-wielding Welsh wizard shared this video with the class. After watching, it got me to thinking about…hot spots.

^How Microwaving Grapes Makes Plasma^

Not just attraction, but what creates it. What causes consolidation?

Crowd Psychology
Collective Behavior
Convergence
Divergence (Disambiguation)
Emergence (Disambiguation)
Emergent
Spontaneous Order
Self-Organization
Influence

Why would God/gods/goddesses not be “here”? Like, do levels of removal actually increase the scope of influence?

Certainly seems to be the case in politics. Sure, you can onesie-twosie converts by taking time to go out glad-handing face to face with your constituents in the street, but the more you remove yourself, the more you can reach because the methods for reaching, change. The more you can influence. Just pondering why an entity might not actually occupy the realms they’ve created. Like say…I doubt many public servants actually occupy any public housing blocks that they support/fund. Which that makes me think…

Q: Are politicians in The UK required to actually live in the city/district/borough they represent?

A: ???

Can someone live in St Mary Hoo or Thundersley or Ugley Green, but be elected to serve in some capacity in Southend? Is St Mary Hoo considered Rochester? Is Thundersley considered Benfleet? Is Ugley Green considered Bishop’s Stortford?

^Daso – Immer^

Why can’t I reach the Southend-on-Sea Borough Council Hays microsite?

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council Hays Microsite

I went to the Southend website to check on council vacancies, but I cannot get to this “microsite” where the jobs are supposedly listed. Is it because I’m in Texas? You guys/gals regularly checking for broken links? Who the hell is “Hays” anyway?

Hays-Recruiting Experts Worldwide

Is this a Jadu/content management problem? Is it a Hays problem? I guess ultimately, it’s a Southend-in-Sea Borough Council problem.

^Moderat – A new error^

If I join the EU, can I come live in Southend?

Brexit and you

Or would it be better to apply for UK citizenship at this point. Yes, I know that I as an individual can’t join The EU. I also realize that UK citizenship is not an option for me. Just thinking hypotheticals. Like, why can’t I as an individual, join the EU?

Maybe that’s why the thing seems to be crumbling. You’ve not offered EU citizenship as an option for individuals. Wait, but you can’t can you? That would mean Kosovo could potentially slip in under the radar by getting all their citizens to apply for EU citizenship.

^Aleksandir – Yamaha^

Offering citizenship would give you access to shitloads of cheap labor. Oh wait, you’ve already got that.

Nevermind
^Quantic – Time Is The Enemy^

It’s almost like the great Okie migration of the early 20th century is happening again right before our eyes. ‘Cept we are seeing foreigners piling into Europe from the south and the east. Wait…that’s where the Okies came from too.

In Dubious Battle

The Grapes of Wrath

East of Eden (Novel)

Maybe some of you Europeans should give those books a read. Might learn something. Reading Cannery Row, Tortilla Flat and The Pearl couldn’t hurt either.

^Eric Prydz – Generate^

Is it hypocritical of Romani people(s) to shun outsiders, not welcome wanderers, and/or to not provide respite for anyone is who is just passin’ thru?

Romanichal

Is hypocrisy not much more than a convenience?

^Paraíso – Teu Sorriso (Jex Opolis Remix)^

As far as hot spots go, what causes a hot spot as it pertains to abstractions like love? We tend to amass and consolidate feelings of love, then point that love in a particular direction. Focused. Specific. Doesn’t matter what it is either. From commerce to causes, cakes and concerts, to cocks or coochies, we are capable of loving all kinds of stuff.

So what gets our focus where it is? Need? Want? I’m thinking more in the direction of government here tho, so does government want to provide? Does government need to provide?

Q: Is it the responsibility of government to provide, or to ensure that needs are met?

A: ???

I’m just wondering, because it seems to me that finding those in need is not a problem. You could send the city council out to wander the streets on any given day, and they’d likely see fucktons of people on the street in need. The question is, what are you doing about it? And what about those in need who seek you out? Are you available? Can you handle it? Or are you a poor conductor.

Semiconductor?
^Karmaâ – Orient Calling^

I’ve not a fucking clue if loyalty creates hot spots, or if hot spots create loyalty, or even if the two are related in the slightest. Loyalty does seem to be a hot/cold kind of thing tho.

 You are, or you aren't

So what happens when you get a bunch of loyalists together? Does that create a hot spot? If so, what does the hot spot itself attract? More of the same? More of the same and more of the opposite, all at the same time? Did you know that a contraction of hot/cold is hold? A contraction of cold/hot is cot? On that note, lets us crawl into a cot and hold each other.

^Oxia – Domino (Morten Granau Remix)^

Maybe a problem that I personally have with loyalty, is the fact that I have to demonstrate it all the fucking time. Really makes me wonder where the problem with loyalty really lay. Trust? Someone having some trust issues maybe? Wrestling with honesty and what it means to be honest?

/me shrugs
^Djuma Soundsystem – Les Djinns (Trentemoller Remix)^

You’ve got a reach. Perhaps it’s a simple matter of your being completely clueless as to the extent of that reach. But yeah, you’ve got one. It affects people.

Birthday LII: Sham and Shambollocker…

Today is my birthday, Dear Reader 😀 I am now officially 52…

Jack rolls ball to Danny

*That’s right, Clicky… /lights up… on the 25th… /drags… I got a fuckton of cards from the peeps at work… /streams smoke…*

* /smokes…*

… And that’s the number of letters in the English alphabet, if majuscules…

majuscule (n.)

1704, of a letter, “capital;” 1738 as a noun, “a capital letter,” from French majuscule (16c.), from Latin maiuscula (littera), fem. of maiusculus “somewhat larger, somewhat greater,” diminutive of maior (see major (adj.)).

*I love Pride & Prejudice, Clicky… /taps ASH…*

… are distinguished from minuscules…

minuscule (n.)

1705, “small (not capital) letter,” from French minuscule (17c.), from Latin minuscula, in minuscula littera “slightly smaller letter,” fem. of minusculus “rather less, rather small,” diminutive of minus “less” (from PIE root *mei- (2) “small”). It refers to the kind of reduced alphabetical character which arose 7c. and was from about 9c. substituted in writing for the large uncial. From it the small or lower-case letters of the modern Latin alphabet were derived.

As an adjective, from 1727 in printing, “not capital, of reduced form, small” (of letters); the general sense of “extremely small” is attested by 1893. Related: Minuscular.

*wait, what? …/squints…*

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…

*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.

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?

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

Hello Saturday

The cornflower blue moon is upon us. What a great time to talk about limboic stasis. “What in the fucking hell is “limboic stasis” you might ask? I dunno. Just made it up. I think I did anyway. Not the concept, the name.

Limbo
-ic
Stasis
Punctuated Equilibrium
Phyletic Gradualism
Once a dumbass, always a dumbass...right?

Perhaps SoPi-O can help us with this transition.

^The “Limbo State Of Awakening” – (& How To Move On)^

If you are “psychic”, why is it so jarring that you are equally capable of sometimes being “antipsychic”? Wasn’t there a time when you were not what you now are? To relate, just because you are a distance runner doesn’t mean you are distance running right now, nor does it mean you are capable of distance running at this precise moment. Capability and/or capacity for a certain activity is not indicative of some steady-state existence.

Take a minute to ponder the preparation that distance runners endure in order to prepare for an event. But life is not always like that. Meaning, within this psychic or spiritual realms we travel in life, we rarely have the luxury of being able to prepare for some something down the road. Not to mention that if you are preparing, the Universe has a tendency to show up at whatever function we’ve been preparing for, and they are armed with an infinite supply of produce to throw at our raggedy asses as we take center stage.

Is Not / Is \ Was

Everything that I’ve found within “the spiritual realms” is equally paradoxical.

Is Not Now /= Is Now

/=\

Is Now =\ Is Not Now

As you read that left to right, then down, time progresses, is/is not and was/was not, become “am” once you as an individual can find your own comfort with discomfort.

Am Not Now /= Am Now

/=\

Am Now =\ Am Not Now

There is a time when “am = am not”, and there is a time where “am = am”. There is an equality to “am/am not” over the course of time. Some can be comfortable with certain truths, others cannot. I guess it depends on what we strive for and why. Take for example, the concept of seniority.

^DEPECHE MODE INSIGHT^

We like getting in early.

Getting in on the ground floor.

This provides us the opportunity to advance.

Hover over others

Just last night, I watched a video with Roob of some dude reading The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, and Thoth was all fucking over the concepts of ascension and structure and order and law, and talked about all kinds of hierarchies that exist on these higher and higher planes.

We wanna get in on that. But I’m gonna divert here to a Sufi story that I listened to from Idries Shah’s book “A Veiled Gazelle: Seeing How To See”. The book is a collection of short stories, and the story I’m thinking about addresses some of the misconceptions we can maybe sometimes have about seniority.

A VEILED GAZELLE Seeing How to See Part 1 of 4
A VEILED GAZELLE Seeing How to See Part 2 of 4
A VEILED GAZELLE Seeing How to See Part 3 of 4
A VEILED GAZELLE Seeing How to See Part 4 of 4
A VEILED GAZELLE Seeing How to See (Google Books)

That Google Books link above should take you straight to the story we are about to explore a bit.

^Depeche Mode – Happiest Girl^

The story is called “Young And Old”, and it’s the story of some older dude on his spiritual path, looking for teachers and their teachings. The old dude has all kinds of experiences and knowledge under his belt, but this new teacher he stumbles onto is WAY too young and seemingly inexperienced to teach the old dude anything. The old dude seeking smarts tells the young teacher as much, the old dude leaves the school telling the young teacher

“you are far too young”

and

“you are of no use to me”

The old dude stumbles around for 10 years searching for what he is seeking, and winds up right back at the young teacher’s school. The old dude tells the younger teacher that he’s wasted 10 years of his life looking for what was right in front of him 10 years ago. The teacher refuses to accept the old dude, telling them that

“you are too old”

So with respect to seniority, we’ve now got the additional variable of physical age, and we can add to that individual ability. Perceptions of equality, and how we calculate it.

¿Lost

Behind /= Ahead

/=\

Ahead =\ Behind

Lost?

I know I know…no one wants to get lost/be lost. But getting rid of options may leave a void. So let us leave lost right where it is in the event we find ourselves there again. Finding lost just might help us to better find found.

^Depeche Mode – New Dress (lyrics)^

Got a quick question for ya…

Q: How do you approach things in a library?

A: Sideways

The information is there, but you can’t go deep until you find what you are looking for.

How you approach things is prolly important.

^Depeche Mode Blue Dress^

But wait, Sufism is a bunch of nonsense from the Middle East!

The lands of terrorists and terrorism! 

Welp, I’m pretty sure that one of my elementary school teachers used to read stories from this book when I was a kid, so we’re talking sometime between 1976/1978, because I remember the teacher. Sometime in either 2014 or 2015, I stumbled across an audio copy of this book on YouTube, and was floored by the coincidence seeing as how I’d completely forgotten about this book and where I’d originally heard some of it’s stories.

Considering that I was knee deep in syncs, synchs, synching, and synchronicity back in 2014/2015, but was completely alone and had no one to talk to, let’s us now here in 2019 reflect and take a peek at a bit from the introduction page of the book A Veiled Gazelle: Seeing How To See, and see if we can make some connections with old and new. See if there is something that I may have missed as far as “a direct connection” or whatever in the fuck may have led to my being completely incompetent.

“And among the wondrous things is a veiled gazelle: A Divine Subtlety, veiled by a state of the Self, Referring to the States of those who know. Unable to explain their perceptions to others, they can only indicate them to whoever has started to feel something similar…”

Muhiyuddin ibn Arabi: The Interpreter of Desires

So that’s the first part of the Introduction page on the book. Let us see who the fuck this Ibn Arabi is, and see if we can see when they wrote about/tried to describe what seems to be a textbook description of “syncs and syncing”.

Ibn Arabi

Born 26 July 1165. Died 16 November 1240.

Holy FUCK!!! 

This dude was writing about weird coincidence/weird events/synchronicity 800 years ago? Thank God for Jung, eh? Would prolly never have made that connection without some lenses to see in that/those directions. But let us continue on with the Introduction, and see what Idries Shah himself has to say on the topic.

‘“The veiled gazelles, or shrouded deer, (Dhabiyun mubarqa’un) referred to by Ibn Arabi are the perceptions and experiences indicated by those who have them to those who have some inkling of them. ‘Veiling’ in Sufi parlance, indicates the action of the subjective or ‘commanding” self, which partly through indoctrination and partly through base aspirations prevents higher vision.’

‘Sufi poetry, literature, tales and activities are the instruments which, when employed with insight and prescription rather than automatically or obsessively, help in the relationship between Sufi and pupil, towards the removal of the veils.”’

Idries Shah

Woah nelly! Did I understand that correctly? These “veiled gazelles” are actually roadblocks?

Makes sense tho

Most of the “syncs” that I personally have experienced could be equated to rain at an outdoor event. Nails in the road on the highway of life. A huge pimple on your face the morning of your wedding day. Road Signs turned the wrong direction to intentionally lead you away from where you are trying to get to.

Q: Do questions exist in the absence of adversity?

A: ??-ó¿ó-??

The “automatically or obsessively” bit gives us some breathing room tho. Gives us some options. Allows us to scrub our subjectivity, and question as to why we label things and events as we do.

Idries Shah

He’s got some cool stuff for learning. For those so inclined.

^Scratch-D Vs. H-Bomb – Red Pill (Original Mix)^

It’s now Sunday the 19th of May, and the subject of reincarnation came up last night. I’ll give you, the reader, a straighter answer than I gave the person I was speaking with last night, and that is,

I don't fucking know

I can imagine all kinds of reasons for reincarnation being quite practical. Such as, if you want to know what it is like to be a worm, crawling along, minding your own business, doing your thing, then suddenly someone comes along, picks you up, and sandwiches you into a piece of paper and shoves that paper into an envelope?

*Ah, he DMed me the Depeche Mode song, ‘cos of the missive, Clicky…*

Welp, reincarnation could provide you some firsthand insight into what that experience is like. Many people scoff at the concept of reincarnation, but these same people might be wholly sold on the idea of legacy. That’s kinda the idea of SoPi-O and SoPi-M. The same or similar energies and motions, but traveling in different directions.

Wait…I’ve gotten sidetracked. I started writing this yesterday morning with the intention of writing and thinking about SoPi-M, but I’ve not gotten to it yet.

Hrmmm...what to do?
