‘In Wuhan, a steel-gray sky hung over the melancholy day of Li’s death. An impromptu memorial of flowers, a black-and-white photograph and singed cigarettes — a stand-in for joss sticks — formed at the entrance of the hospital where he had died.’
*Aye… /streams smokes… asses free…*
late 13c., “gum or other substance producing a sweet smell when burned,” from Old French encens (12c.), from Late Latin incensum “burnt incense,” literally “that which is burnt,” noun use of neuter past participle of Latin incendere “set on fire” (see incendiary). Meaning “smoke or perfume of incense” is from late 14c.
early 15c., encensen “to arouse, inspire,” from Old French incenser, from Latin incensare, frequentative of incendere “set on fire,” figuratively “incite, enrage, rouse” (see incendiary). From mid-15c. as “to provoke, anger.” Literal sense “to heat, make (something) hot” is from c. 1500 in English but is rare.
“to offer incense, perfume with incense, fumigate (something) with incense,” late 13c., encensen, incensen, from incense (n.) or from Old French encenser (11c.), or directly from Medieval Latin incensare.
*It can lead to some awful decisions taken… /eyes fag packet…*
*Ah, when the Doctor and assistant had at least some chemistry between ’em…/flicks lighter…*
*When a 3 2 1 ray show worked… /lights up… Clicky, be a doll and get me some chainsmokers. I’m in the mood…*
Ewwww…seriously? I am being completely honest in saying that I am not reading ahead in the “30 Day Challenge”, and was completely unaware of what Day 4 had in store until Roob mentioned it in the Day 3 post.
Songs that remind us of people we’d rather forget
rofl…um, how to explain this without sounding like a self-centered and condescending prick. Let’s see here…my life is, interesting. Stormy. A completely normal life surrounded by the surreal and serendipitous bordering on the completely unbelievable by incredulous onlookers. A travesty. As a result, “abnormal” and “aberrant” are the norm, so its difficult for me to associate a single something with a single someone. I can associate songs with a particular time, and there may be a particular someone within that time that I can loosely associate with a song, but I usually cannot attribute a song to that person and that person alone. Perhaps its my love of music + my knowledge that associating a particular song with a particular someone is extremely dangerous. Good songs that mean a lot to us don’t come along that often, and for me, to associate a single song with a single someone or even a single something is a sure-fire way to ensure that you are going to hate that song at some point…all because of a someone that has little to nothing to do with that song.
All that said, I’m now thinking of a certain someone, and a certain song that served to break some of the tension as I drove her to the bus station.
Dig For Fire by the Pixies doesn’t make me think about that someone. Or at least, not just and only that certain someone. Does it bring back memories of that unfortunate situation and the events that led up to it? Sure. But wow, what a song. What an exclamation point on a situation. Someone had needs, I could not provide for those needs on the timeline in which they needed them, they decided to move on. Keep digging. Keep searching for the fire they need. This is just me, but its almost as if there was a certain providence to all of the goings on at the time, and those players who were represented as events transpired. Yeah, I’m talking 3rd parties of all kinds, even those that may reside in the more ethereal types of realms.
Was I hurt? You bet. Was I angry? Indeed I was. Do I still feel that pain even today? Yep. Am I still confused even after all these years? Absolutely. But no need to transfer that weight onto The Pixies, nor their album Bossanova, nor their song Dig For Fire. Plus, had all that not happened, you would not be here today reading what I am here today writing. There are reasons for everything. I don’t pretend to know what those are, but yeah, prolly some reasons that things happen in the way and ways that they do. Digress.
I guess some people feel that if you “don’t have a song”, there’s something missing in a relationship. A certain song that has a certain meaning to only you and your partner. Welp, I’m a musician. If I want a song that means something to me and you, and only me and you, I’ll write it myself. Needless to say, this next one kinda got grabbed by a certain someone, they attached some meaning to it, but I always felt that it meant more to them than it did to me. Sounds cold, I know. But again, I have an avenue to express my fire for someone. I don’t need someone else to do it for me. Regardless of all that, someone that I used to know latched onto this song, and I never had the courage to tell them that of all of the music Cocteau Twins have ever produced, this is probably one of my least favorite songs…only because of the additional meaning attached to it via a relationship.
Sucks, because that is a fucking fantastic song. The ending sounds like how God got the idea to hang the morning sun in the sky after an eternal night of darkness.
Beautiful hands us no way lies a means of love
On sounds and guard the stone, and bed had a law
Answers written and I reason
In the reign of sex, blown more than it’s pleased to be
He’s a beauty affection, oooh
Men are so nice
He pleases me fine
He pleases me fine, fine, fine, fine
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
The music, the lyrics, the arrangement, the performance(s)…fucking genius. How in the hell can I hijack a song like that and attach my own personal meaning(s) to it as if it were somehow mine?
It’s as if I was supposed to melt every time the song came on. Difficult for me to melt even more when you are already a melted and gooey puddle that is completely and totally lovestruck. How do you top, what cannot be topped? I’m already head over heels, so where in the fuck am I supposed to go? Backwards? Back to where this song first became the anthem of my eternal an undying love? Sorry, can’t do it. You were already the sole object of my affection long before you knew that song even existed.
It means something special to you? Great. Seriously, I think that is wonderful. Just don’t expect it to mean the same thing for me that it means for you.
Its sometimes tough to know how to feel about certain things. You’re likely going to encounter things you personally have never experienced yourself, and you may even encounter and experience shit you’ve never even heard of. That said, if relationships can come together, makes sense that they can also come apart. Some things come apart so goddamn fast, that you begin to wonder if the other party was ever actually working to make things work. But such is life sometimes. Some things require the hammer. The harsh stress test(s) to see if this certain something is going to stand the test of time according to your own liking. One drawback of the hammer test tho, is that nothing lasts for long, and certainly not under the hammer. All breaks, all fails, everything crumbles. Just does so a helluva lot faster than it would have otherwise.
So what is it you ultimately seek to achieve. What is this something you wish to obtain, and why is it you choose the hammer to obtain it. While its true that wielding the hammer can teach you a great deal about whatever it is that you are placing on the anvil, at some point you’ll likely need to reflect on what all of this is doing to you. What it is doing to others is obvious, but what it is doing to you? Not so much. In the right hands, a hammer can produce some amazing things. You’re likely to go through a shitload of material during the learning process tho. Might wanna make sure you’ve adequate supplies left available to create your masterpiece once you’ve mastered your craft.
Five songs seems excessive, and much of what I’ve written thusfar may be interpreted by some as being bitter. You may even surmise that I am repressing. Avoiding the subject. Nope. I’m fortunate to have my own outlets. My own pathways for expressing myself and my feelings on a particular subject. Music, song lyrics, poetry, writing, I feel blessed that I have these avenues. Helps me to get on. Helps me to keep going. Experience enough sunrises, and you’ll know that the sun is sure to set. Experience enough sunsets, and you’ll know that the sun is sure to rise.
Doc Holliday: What do you want?
Wyatt Earp: Just to live a normal life.
Doc Holliday: There is no normal life Wyatt…there’s just life. Get on with it.
Movie = Tombstone
Normal normalcy is temporary, and all that is normal, is also fleeting.
Not to mention, I don’t like forgetting.
Forgetting makes me forget.
Makes me prone to repeating previous mistakes.
Makes me forget who I was.
That may even lead to my never being who I can be and/or never being who I could have been.
You’ll get my all for as long as you want it.
It’s all I have.
Forgetting? Thanks, but I think I’ll pass.
Get the fuck over it, and get on with it.
Not like I have a lot of choice.
There is only one person I’d rather forget: I really don’t care for Tony Blair and this is the song that reminds me of him…

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY 2019 BITCHES!!!
Before we continue, an interesting thought just occurred to me. Yes…it’s Saturday…07:48 in the AM…and this is part 2 of the previous nonsense…
Yesterday, a lady that I follow on Twitter made a tweet that got me to thinking.
Over the past coupla years, I’ve regained some feeling in my limbs that has been absent since I was a kid. I admit that it is a strange sensation, and I personally would even consider it scary most of the time. I know for the most part the events that led up to me losing sensation in a particular area, but why the feeling is returning?
A mystery. One I’ve been chasing for several years now. And yeah, the feeling itself is scary. I adapted to not having feeling in a certain area of my body, which was a scary process, so I guess it only natural that I would need to adapt to suddenly having feeling in areas where previously there were none, which is also a scary process.
Standing outside late at night, staring at the sky, pondering all manner of things, when a clear and sharp thought comes into focus in my mind. Suddenly, at the same moment as the clarity of mind arrives, and as if to somehow accentuate the point…
a gentle gust of wind
Like little fingers of encouragement from some unseen hand. Coincidence, right? Maybe. But for me to feel wind on my legs or arms prior to around 2012 would have required something in the hurricane force range. Not only is the feeling itself strange, but why did it arrive at that particular moment? Would it be possible that I needed to feel that wind so as to have some kind of sensory input so that I would know that “HEY! I’VE GOT FEELING IN MY LEGS!!!”
As far as everyday occurrence, how mindful are we about things touching us except for being mindful about our protective bubbles and making sure that we know where the mace is located. Let’s onward to this thought I just had on this fine, but very stormy, Saturday morning.
We humans have no qualms whatsoever at accusing The Universe of conspiring against us. The Universe will throw banana peels in our path all day long, and we won’t bat an eye at accusing God/the gods/unseen forces of singling us out. Picking on us. Making our life a living hell.
WHY DOES GOD HATE ME?!?!?!?
We can share these horrible experiences with others, and others can likely relate because they are prolly well versed themselves in experiencing similar horrific days. But what about the opposite? Why are we so receptive to The Universe troweling out nightmarish sludge in our exact direction, but anything awesome or sweet arriving from Big Mamma directly to us is…
Chance. Utterly dismissible. Not meant for specifically for me. Are we wired so as to think like this? If so, who wired us this way? Not only that, but who can rewire us once we realize that our thinking may be a bit…off.
Food for thought
Speaking of food and thought, what in the fuck is Sassafras anyway?
The one constant with respect to groups seems to be diversity. Take Megadeth for example. Both Megadeth and Metallica have their roots in the same area, but their music couldn’t be more different. Metal? Sure. But beyond that, very different.
Wait…when I said “groups”, you thought I was talking about conservatives/liberals, believers/non-believers, commies/fascists, and shit like that. Welp, I was. An argument could be made that Metallica are to capitalists what Megadeth are to hippies. Megadeth and Metallica are both metal, and capitalists and hippies are both human. The question is, which one appeals to you personally. You aren’t in the band, which means you are going to be in the audience cheering on your rockers of choice. They are the nucleus, you’re hanging out in some electron shell with the rest of the hangers on, and the combination of the two makes the whole atom go.
Holy shit that was a lame analogy. Just still got that DoD video on my mind, and wondering what it is that makes people take certain parts as gospel, and toss the rest of the available information…out. Perhaps the source? Meaning, if you trust a certain channel to provide you with information, and because this particular channel opposes channels that you do NOT trust, like “the government” or MSM or whatever, that makes you more likely to believe whatever it is that they are feeding you?
Welp, just keep in mind, that you’ve latched on to new sources of information you’ve put your trust in, which makes these channels “official”.
at least to you
Keep that thought about official channels in mind, what they are capable of, and maybe call them out when they appear to start fudging. Maybe be kind about it tho? People make mistakes. People get it wrong. Or fuckit, kick everyone’s ass at the first sign of trouble. Whatever. I don’t care.
The next thing that I was asked to look up/investigate was a story that “they” are going door to door in NY giving everyone Measles shots, and you will be fined $1,000 on the spot for refusing the shot. This immediately rang a bell as something I’d heard before. That said, there was no distinction as to what “NY” referred to, so I immediately assumed NYC since most people who do not live in New York tend to associate “NY” with NYC, and forget about the rest of the state and the 12 million people that live there.
So NYC, 8 million people, door to door, in a city that does indeed have a fuckton of doors, but not many houses. Like, single-family residences. Not to mention that NYC has loads of places that social workers giving shots are likely to not be real thrilled about going to.
Are we talking Rubella? Or Rubeola? At the time of this writing, Google is telling me that “measles” is extremely rare at less than 1,000 cases reported per year, and I assume this number is US only. A search for “measles worldwide” reflects that yep, 10 million reported cases worldwide yearly. The US ain’t doing too bad. What in the FUCK could possibly be going on in NY that somewhere between 8 and 19 million people in that city/state need to be forcibly given vaccines? Is there a difference between a first time vaccine and a booster?
OK, so it appears that there is some kind of battle taking place in New York, and that article says that the “outbreak” appears to be centered in “ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities in Brooklyn”. So maybe the NY health department is tinkering with the idea of going door-to-door in certain areas of Brooklyn?
Any idea why “Jews” might not be real thrilled with the prospect of someone banging on their door and forcing you to accept a label?
Is it a coincidence that I watched a movie called “Chaplin” for the first time last night? Any idea what a movie about Charlie Chaplin and Jews has to do with the price of Sassafras in Switzerland? Welp, Chaplin’s sweetheart died of the flu in the Spanish Flu outbreak that followed World War I. Not trying to pile connections on you, just kinda pointing out some stuff that is there.
Anyone else notice that line “Vaccination is known to extinguish the fire of contagion.” Oh yeah? What extinguishes the fire of tyranny? What the fuck is tyranny anyway.
Is it considered tyrannical to use your station as a platform for manipulating those you consider to be less fortunate? When did your own personal opinion become law? Like, outside of your own personal self-governance. What that judge said was pretty goddamn inflammatory…
“A fireman need not obtain the informed consent of the owner before extinguishing a house fire.”
There’s no distinction made as to what “a house fire” is, who is making the judgment call, nor as to the cause of the blaze. Can I not burn down my own house?
yes, that's loaded, but have fun with it
What the fuck is a blaze anyway?
Why have measles made a come back?
*What in the blasio, Clicky? …/flicks ash…*
Holy shit. Subjectivity to the MAX. Lets us see if we can find anything on this mandatory whatever it is.
So…containment. Keep the “outbreak” relegated to this one area, and it won’t sneak outside and start to really fuck with your numbers. Seems like it started in an isolated community of “anti-vaxxers” according to this article. So they’ve isolated and are trying to contain not one infection, but two. Measles, and anti-vaxxers. You know what they say about those two-front wars.
Just saw an argument transpiring on an internet forum, and it occurred to me that neither party gave a flying fuck about these people they say they are trying to lead. They seem to care only about who leads them.
Makes sense tho about trying to lead irrespective of the destination. When you’re a kid, you aren’t concerned with where the car is going, you just want to drive the car. What does that have to do with vaccinations, mandatory or otherwise? Dunno. Maybe it’s not my job to figure that out. BTW, there are swastikas in that image above.
Yeah, if you don’t choose a side, and more importantly, you don’t choose the side that someone thinks you should choose? You’re in deep shit. That’s the problem with blazing these kinds of trails. If you’re doing it to make friends, you’re on the wrong path. And speaking of choosing a path to make friends, I hear that Facebook 86’d a bunch of people the other day?
One such victim was Paul Joseph Watson? I admit to not knowing much about the guy, but he seems to be pretty much like any other social mediot. Reads topical shit, gives their opinion, is real clever about it, accumulate following, advertisers/advertising secured via multiple platforms, BOOM BABY! You’ve got a full time job being a talking head and getting paid good money to do it.
Ya know, whether you realize it or not, I don’t hear you complaining about not being allowed to be on some show on the BBC. Or the FOX network. What’s your beef with getting kicked off of Facebook? The types of streams you were chasing on Facebook are really no different than broadcast television or radio. But that’s now, right? Did you have loads of followers when you first joined Facebook? Were you making loads of cash from Facebook and their affiliates from day one? Fuck dude, even Friends got canceled. You had your run. You made cash, they made cash, wasn’t that the point?
Roob just DM’d me and said “I’m messing with your missive”.
That thing was a fucking mess. I didn’t do a word count, but it wound up being seven pages of wandering bullshit. Odd considering I tried to stay “on topic” whilst writing that. Same with this one. I’m not doing so good. Well. I’m not doing so well. Fuck the English language and it’s hellish protocols. I ain’t doing so goddamn good.
Any chance that the closing of public schools could provide temporary relief from non-directly related financial burdens? Are any public schools even being closed? Or are only the private ones being ordered closed.
New York spends more per student than any other state?
Some temporary relief from such an ailment would be a godsend. Wait, I prolly shouldn’t use such vernacular…separation of church and state and all that. Surely no one with their finger on the financial pulse of the New York educational system would take advantage of such a dire situation. That’s opportunism at its worst. Not to mention that, how in the fuck can you justify financing what would have to be an army of workers to march around the city giving vaccinations, and another army to accompany the first army in order to issue citations/levy fines. I mean, you’d need two armies, not one, right? Medical workers/healthcare providers aren’t members of the executive, are they?
Some games do in fact accommodate eventualities such a stalemates or ties. Why doesn’t your game make such allowances?
Let the hedging…BEGIN!!!
Fuckit. I’m done with this measles shit. That StatNews article about the mandatory vaccinations states that…
“The commissioner is empowered by law to issue such orders in cases when they might be necessary to protect against a serious public health threat.”
In this case, “the commissioner” refers to is the City Health Commissioner of New York City, who thinks she has the power, by law, to do whatever she thinks is right, and she can and will force you to comply. She has resources that you, the less fortunate, do not have, because you gave all your shit away to the same fuckers that are now standing on your windpipe.
*Whoa, that man’s hands look fucking weird, Clicky …/counts fingers…*
Voice-To-Skull Technology…is there such a thing? Are they talking Bluetooth? Actually, I’m being a smartass there because I know exactly what they are talking about. Well, maybe not exactly, but I’ve done some reading on sonic weapons and/or manipulation of sound to invoke or evoke certain emotional responses. Like say, “The Invitation” part of a church service and the musical selections that are played during this part of the service. What’s that? You weren’t aware that there are structured elements to a church service that are purposely designed to push your emotions in a particular direction?
Welp, there are
I remember every Sunday being a fucking train wreck at this point in the service. Same fucking songs over and over. Mom was the church pianist, so, perhaps you can relate to my particular station a bit. Heard the songs that were going to be played on Sunday being practiced over and over all week long, then got to hear the grand finale on Sunday…
boy oh boy
OK, so, all that surrendering got me to thinking in a different direction, and I played a cheap trick on you with that last one. But yeah, I am quite familiar with the concept of “voice to skull” types of tricks to get God into your head. What’s that saying? “The old tricks are the best tricks”? Something like that. Anyways, lets cruise around and see if we can venture off into the “targeted individual” types of realms. And yeah, that’s exactly where we are headed. No other possible destination but there.
HAARP is going to have to come up, so lets go ahead and get that out of the way by addressing the fact that the Ionosphere has 5 layers, The Pentagon has 5 rings, and a pentagon was seen on Saturn at some point in the recent past.
A: The first thing would be shit their pants, second would be clean up the mess and get a grip, so let's start with the third thing.
It is possible that a message originating from Saturn, in fact, did not originate there. When thinking about the mechanics of how we ourselves utilize existing infrastructure, like bouncing waves off the Ionosphere, it’s likely that some group from somewhere else might do the similar/same. This would have the effect of hiding the original source.
Maybe “they” don’t want us to know where the signal is coming from. Hell, maybe it’s not meant for us at all, and we’re just lucky enough to be able to listen in somewhat on some galactic communication that is using our planet as a relay station. So now, to skull technology or whatever. Imma run over to Google, type in “voice to skull”, and see what the first page of results tells us.
Yeah…that’s kinda what I expected. Microwave is going to be a fairly narrow band. That’s why your cheap shitty ‘Hungry Man Dinner’ cooks so unevenly in the microwave oven without the clever portions and packaging. This is also why you are going to fucking die if you stand in front of a radar sending dish of any power that is active.
But don't worry about it too much if you are a cellphone user
Your mobile phone does something quite similar. Just not as powerfully as a radar or microwave oven. I mean, you want your microwave oven, you want your cellphone, you want accurate radar for accurate weather reports, you want your aircraft to have weather radar and you want your air traffic controllers to have radar contact on all aircraft at all times. You want your local law enforcement to be able to catch speeders, and the Army wants to be able to send messages to soldiers without receiving equipment of any kind.
Sounds like a fair trade-off to me
Speaking of sound, by yet another weird trick of fate, the following video just appeared on my YouTube feed. It’s not very long, but what really sticks out to me is the interference between electronic devices. This video was shot in 2001, so video technology was as such that filters were unlikely to have been built in to the recording device to deal with the types of power that it was encountering basically at the source of transmission. As such, you can actually hear a lot of the stuff that you are getting bombed with, all day, every day, and prolly have been for most of your life. And to point out, yes, electronic devices do interfere with each other. A state of war has existed from the start with these machines we build.
I personally have a shortwave radio. All I need do, is plug it in, turn it on, and I can cycle through literally thousands of channels that are blasting through this very room, all day, every day, but I cannot actively detect them without the right equipment. That said, this presents a good time to bring up the topic of sensitivity to electronic devices.
Yeah…more pseudoscience for you to chew on. Hey, this is one big shit sandwich we’re dealing with here. A Texas-sized shit sandwich, if you will, and we all have to take a bite.
Something to keep in mind about weapons. I would think it would be quite a normal first reaction to fear any weapon of any kind. It’s a fucking weapon for chrissakes…of course you should fear it. So don’t beat yourself up too bad for getting a really bad vibe off of some something you hear about that is specifically designed to hurt, harm, damage, destroy, kill, maim or cause pain. Some gizmo that makes you and everyone around you start puking because this weapon emits focused low-frequency waves is some scary shit. Speaking of low-frequency waves, I really like the thumping techno track.
Anyone remember the USS Iowa explosion?
Yeah, weapons are dangerous. They are designed to be so.
Lethal is a state, not a scale
Guess it all depends on which end of a particular weapon you are on as to whether you have the luxury of pondering its “lethality”. What am I on about here? Welp, if you are going to battle those who are creating weapons that you disagree with, you yourself are prolly going to require some weapons in order to fight this war. You want to win, so, who do you turn to for the best weapons? I’m betting the enemy your are wanting to fight has some cool ones. Maybe they’ll sell you some. And don’t sweat the hypocrisy of it all. Not a new concept at all to obtain war materials from the very people you are about to fight.
Hey, did you hear about that plane that crashed in Florida recently? Charter flight…
…coming from Guantanamo Bay Cuba
…hot-shot defense attorney on board the flight.
What in the fuck business does an attorney have at Gitmo? The article I saw about the crash read as if this attorney was the only person on the plane, but the article says there were 143 people on the plane. Why was this person the only one USA Today spoke with? Also, who the fuck has the kind of bread it takes to charter a 737 for 143 people? Not like civilian aircraft are allowed to land on military bases under any circumstances except an emergency, but this thing took off from a military base. What is a civilian doing on government chartered aircraft?
Ooops…I did it again. Have run long yet again. Didn’t finish the bits about skull-to-God’s voice, and didn’t get to a single video that I need to get to. Part 3, is inbound. I say again, part 3, is inbound. Confidence is high. I say again, I wish I was high.
Did I say that last bit out loud?
*A cryptic triptych, Clicky? …/stubs butt… How exciting!*
*Have you seen my fags, Clicky? …/searches…*
*/drags… Talking to the Toll-keen…*
*/smokes… ROO-el was his middle name? Blimey…*
What are you doing here?
Before you answer, let me hit you with another query…anyone else wake up in the morning and your hands are completely numb?
Yeah, me too
Not just my hands either. Sometimes a leg, sometimes both legs, sometimes an arm, and sometimes my head – which is one of the weirder things to have go numb on ya – but this waking up with certain sections of the body being numb has been going on all my life, so I don’t really give it much thought these days. Was scary as shit when I was a kid sure, especially on those days that started with me waking from sleep only to discover that my arms or legs wouldn’t work at all, and I had to roll out of bed onto the floor with a thud in order to get my day started. But now I’ve accepted being numb as just being a part of me and what is normal for me personally.
With that in mind, what would you prefer to talk about on this fine day? Normalcy? Acclimation to oddity? Acceptance? Lou Gherig’s Disease? Fibromyalgia? Rheumatic skin conditions? Foreign Limb Syndrome? Cotard’s Syndrome? Syndrome Syndrome?
I know!!! Let’s start off talking about perception!!!
If you go north from Israel, and just keep going in a straight line all the way around the planet until you get back to Israel, any idea what landmasses, countries and other items of interest you will encounter on the way?
When I was a kid, Russia/USSR/CCCP was thought to be this evil land where the evil one would gather their evil forces and do evil things in the name of evil. Later, people got a little educated I guess, and Gog and Magog were thought perhaps to be a reference to Ukraine and Russia since there’s always been this mystery about the Gog/Magog and what it means. Supposedly, Ukraine IS Russia, but I guess that depends on who you ask. We only have a direction as far as I know, and that direction is north. But who is Russia’s opposite member and/or who has been Russia’s opposite member for quite a while now? Anything that points us in a particular direction?
for those inclined to look
Of course, you assume that all this shit is going down right now, and that for some reason, you are the lucky generation that gets to watch the whole thing go down the shitter. That is of course assuming that the whole thing is indeed destined to go down the shitter.
If the poles someday flip and/or the magnetic fields get so twisted and distorted that certain cardinal points that were previously opposites are now neighbors, what does that do to concepts like prophecy?
Seriously, if you need three compasses just to find magnetic north, what is that going to do for navigation? Most people don’t own a single compass, let alone three of them, and even if they have a compass, can they read them properly? What if the planet’s crust slips and slides and the continents are no longer where they were? Prophecy confuses me. Primarily the practical applications that result of a certain prophecy gaining/losing notoriety and/or popularity.
People typically don’t like old stuff. Is that a fair assumption to make? Or does it matter primarily what we are talking about. Can’t have a conversation on antiques unless you are addressing old stuff, but when it comes to milk, we prolly want something new.
unless we're talking cheese, in which case “old milk” is totally fine
But what I am thinking about here with respect to “old/new” is topicality and/or being topical. Anything that I write about probably needs to be somewhat current in order for you to have any sort of interest in reading what it is that I am chasing. So to start off with on the topic of “perception”, let’s lay some groundwork by me passing along to you a video that was just passed along to me.
For this exercise, we’ll be heading over to The Pentagon, and see what was supposedly cooking with The US Department of Defense and their contractors back in 2005…a shade over 14 years ago. Supposedly, some someone developed some something called FUNVAX, and I submit for your consideration, the video below.
Any perceptions on that? Sounds pretty sinister to me. Scary even. But let me qualify my statement by saying that by 0:16 into the video, I was already skeptical as fuck. Nothing about this video seems genuine. Not to mention that what was described in the video sounds like the entire premise for the movie Serenity, which I’m pretty sure came out around the same time this video is said to have been made.
But let me go ahead and tell you what my immediate perception on this video was…internal governmental training film. A film made by the government for their own internal use. A training film. Show this film to employees, see what they think of it. It’d be a great way to demonstrate what “your government” does/does not participate in. Teach your employees how to tame their own passions on a path to establishing the validity of a certain something.
Gimme a break
The name itself screams “govern your passions”. But here is what I did after I watched the video and established that 1) it’s “fake”, and 2) it was likely created as some kind of training film. The look of the film also has an air of “student film project”:
I could go on listing things that I saw wrong with this video, but I’ll go ahead and suggest that we look up FUNVAX instead. The second Google search result caught my eye immediately….
Fuckin-A…even the Snopes article references the Serenity movie, and Snopes appears to have gotten their hands on this FUNVAX back in 2015. That’s a full 10 years after this FUNVAX was supposedly developed.
Let me tell you something else that caught my eye upon being given this video to watch. It was posted to YouTube on May 3rd of 2019 which was last Friday. I viewed it late Monday night, the video only had about 300 views at that time, today is Wednesday May 8th, and the video at 11:42 am has 3,124 views + 315 likes, 2 dislikes, and 138 comments. So what I’m doing at this point is a search on YouTube to see how popular “FUNVAX” is on YouTube itself, and fuck yeah…
Multiple copies of this video here and there, loads of videos talking about it.
*I know, we know… /shoots up hand…*
A: Revenue streams
*Alright, Clicky, settle down… /looks smug…*
And we can learn some shit too.
Here’s the thing with stuff like this…any “vaccine” like this is going to require an antidote of some kind. But not even an antidote, a blocker. Some something that makes it not work in the first place. An inoculation. A vaccination vaccine…if you will.
You can’t spray some aerosol something everywhere without risking you yourself getting a faceful of the goop you’re spraying. And since you yourself are one of the converted, and you are having your own religious experience by joining the side of good to fight evil, if you are exposed to this FUNVAX crap, you won’t fight anymore. Spraying this shit on opponents will no longer make sense to you, and you won’t do it. Didn’t think about that twist did you? Or maybe you did.
/me shrugs Digress
In this case, “the blocker” would be the natural state of the system and the brain, so countermeasures would (to me anyway) seem to be impossible. This parity type bit they are talking about in the video that exists in the genetic code? I’d imagine makes for a discriminator in this area of the brain which they are talking about requires in order to function properly. It sounds as though what is being described is basically taking a binary system and changing the I/O to a permanent unary state. Before being exposed to “FUNVAX”, you could or could not have “religious experiences”, this area of the brain discriminates as to whether you are/are not having a religious experience, and after exposure to this “vaccine” you cannot have religious experiences by removing the “am” variable.
Am/Am Not – Am = Am/Am Not
If “Am” is no longer an option, Am Not would become “Can Not”
So yeah, if you who have developed and deployed this weapon become exposed to it yourself, there will be no victory celebrations because any desire for elation will be nullified as no state of euphoria can exist. Remember we are talking abstracts here, so you’d likely need to be aware of secondary types of input to know whether you’d won or lost. But here’s another twist to consider with respect to why a blocker of some kind is improbable. If those who previously identified as being an “am/am not” type of experiencer are flipped to a permanent “am not” state, it is likely that there would be “a naturally occurring” reaction in those not exposed to the vaccine which would flip their own discriminators to set a permanent “am” bit.
Am/Am Not – Am = Am/Am Not = Cannot
Am/Am Not – Am Not =Am/Am Not = Cannot Not or Can't Not
Might want to spend some time trying to find the gene responsible for turning ‘off’ off. Unless of course you are thinking that you can simultaneously permanently eliminate “the religious experience” in one group, whilst permanently activating it in another. All you’d need to do is make sure you got a good concept (like victory) in the head before turning it on. If something bad got in there before permanently turning it on, or worse, nothing got in there? Man…a permanent bad religious experience, or a permanent religious experience with no meaning?
Holy shit. Sounds like hell
Absurdity can help get your head wrapped around what are typically considered to be complexities.
Installing a light switch that is not connected to a light fixture.

Loads of logic built into systems. Like sticking massive fonted encoding on a video so that anyone watching the video will notice them. If the viewer notices the encoding, they are likely to actually read the encoding, and if they read the encoding, they are likely going to see the thought that went into the encoding that is displayed…
what it means
It gets the viewer to start asking questions, and the encoding will provide the answers, all while the viewer basically ignores what is actually transpiring onscreen in the presentation. Built-in countermeasures…
if you will
Diversions, distractions, anything and everything to get you to watch that short video over and over again, recommend it to your friends, stuff like that. I dunno, maybe I’m wrong on that. Just not real sure why the DoD would make a “pent” distinction with respect to the largest office building in the world when the lettering/numbering of the rings/rooms is just as easy. Plus it’s likely that each and every room would have at least two numberings, internal and external, and there’s likely to be other shenanigans too. Lastly I’d think that most encoding would be hidden for a number of reasons.
I’m not going to call “these people” who participate in this nonsense “a pack of nutters”. My personal perception(s) of any seeker, and especially any seeker that is talking nonsense, is first that they are people. Plain ol’ everyday people, just like you, searching for answers, and having to wade through the mass of the entire Universe in order to find these tiny insignificant answers they seek. Most people likely just want to talk about these things they find. Afterall, shit like this may not be new to YOU, but it’s sure as shit new to them.
You may not have worked in the government, but I have. Much of what is done is really pretty shocking/jarring until you figure out why things are done that way. Like inverting the rings of The Pentagon for internal use, or perhaps even transposing them on a cyclical basis. Not saying this is what they do, just saying that a lot of the cat and mouse type of stuff has some pretty good reasoning behind it. And yeah, I get that these procedures could be used for nefarious activities, but the same can be said about any stream or channel. Just wondering what you are looking for…
maybe also wondering why
From the point of being an educated educator, think of it like this. Your own child approaches you and asks you about something called FUNVAX. Do you:
Are you too busy to do any of those things?
A: No wait...you've grown beyond being tested, right?
You did your time in school, and now, it’s your turn to conquer and rule…right? Nothing more to learn, and no way to test what you’ve learned even if you did accidentally learn something new. Sorry conspiracy peeps, but if you aren’t banging on and evaluating a certain something from every direction you can find? You’re a fucking dunce. Fear not tho…I’m a dunce too…so you’re in good company.
Welcome to the club
Did you even know that a place like Snopes existed?
Welp, it does
I admit I’ve not been there in ages, but it’s nice to know it’s still there. Another tool in the toolbox for those seeking truth, and another metric for deciding who you trust to tell you what. And in this age of monetization of anything and everything, it’s difficult to know who to trust.
Wait…what’s that? You hadn’t considered that this FUNVAX nonsense was a commercial vehicle? That what it appears to be to me. Inside and out, FUNVAX is all about the blingy bling-bling. Cashy monies. And oh what a sweet, sweet solace those big piles of teh monies does for our safeties, securities and pieces of mindlessnesses.
WAIT!!! FUCK ME RUNNING!!! We’re supposed to be investigating perception(s)!!! You’re letting me down. You’re letting us down. Let’s get back on the road.
ON TO THE NEXT ONE!!!
Yes, there are several videos that were passed along to me to review, and that was just the first one. But in an odd twist of fate, I stopped writing, it is now Friday, and something new has appeared on my radar…
Um, I know nothing about the hubub surrounding this tweet. I know none of the particulars at this time. But something in that tweet caught my eye, and it was about what makes us. The declaration is, that “so-and-so is not a racist”, which got me to thinking about what makes us.
Good Stuff + Bad Stuff = Us
Now let us figure out the particulars of this…whatever in the fuck it is other than an attempt to draw attention to oneself. I posted the tweet to Roob via DM…
Roob posted a picture that this dude appears to have posted on Twitter…
and it’s an old picture of some stately dressed people leading a Chimpanzee out of a building, and the caption added by this Danny Baker dude was “Royal Baby Leaves Hospital”. Ah…all kids are little monkeys. But no…there’s a twist or two…
Roob tells me that this dude has gotten fired from his job at The BBC for this tweet. I’m still confused, other than perhaps royalty doesn’t like their elevated and cultured spawn being referred to as simian…
No, Roob tells me, the Princess, the mother of this new royal tot…is black. Ah. Someone thinks it was a jab at race, so the dude got shitcanned, and now the fuss being generated is trending in “the press”. THAT’S why there was the bit about “I’ve known this dude forever, and he ain’t racist”. I’m gonna have to stand on my original assessment…
Good Stuff + Bad Stuff = Us
No one is above reproach. Cept maybe that one dude in literature. And maybe some of the miscreants and oddballs that hangs out around him/her/them or whatever. BTW, what are the odds that a song called “TOT” would start playing in my playlist as I was writing the above?
I’m completely sidetracked now, so let’s keep talking about common law. At some point, this Internet thingie is going to start to intrude on our personal lives in ways we’ve not yet imagined.
“Community standards” is where it is likely to start
You may be able to bang your 14 year old cousin in one community, but not another. As such, if it’s not OK to talk to someone’s fiance in one community, chances are that rules and regulations will eventually be put into place that transcends these e-barriers that we now seem to enjoy. Yeah, I’m thinking sexting or cybering or whatever it is called. Been thinking about this concept for quite some time, and wondering what trouble someone in Suffolk County Massachusetts could get into for talking nasty with someone in Cass County North Dakota while on the phone or computer.
Suffolk Country may have community standards about certain sexual activities that Cass County does not have, and the Suffolk County District Attorney may have their eyes on prosecuting a case that gets them in the running for a Federal posting…
…you win the galactic lottery because your online gf (who is married) wants you to pee on her…
virtually of course
…and the Suffolk County DA has a friend who can get access to NSA records that hone in on exactly this kind of…
Now that you’ve got the basic idea in your head, lets go international.
Some time back, I saw a story about Great Britain asking the USA for permission to serve warrants within US territories. I can’t find the article, but I seem to recall this request centered around finance. Maybe it was The UK was asking permission to serve eviction notices? Can’t remember, but I picked up on it seemed to be a probing type maneuver to see what power banks had and with whom, which meant that there was a power that someone wanted, and they needed to see how to get it.
It struck me that if the banks could wrangle a way to do this and basically circumvent US law (which includes state, county and local laws as well as federal), that foreign governments would likely want to use this as an avenue for diplomacy. Meaning, a way to keep foreign influence(s), we’ll say, from impacting local standards.
Miguel is in Spain, and his wife has been cybering with some dude in New Mexico, USA. Miguel wants to get his hands around the neck of this dude that is virtual fucking his wife from America, but can’t unless he travels there, and now he’s just going to wind up in American prison for assault or murder or conspiracy to commit bodily harm or whatever. Too much trouble. Fortunately, Miguel is a mover and shaker within INTERPOL, and gets an idea that if adultery is illegal in Spain, it should be illegal via any and all channels that cross Spanish borders.
This American dude’s virtual dick is crossing the Spanish border, and his wife is willingly accepting it into her virtual orifice of choice, hence, adultery. And that adultery dog just don’t hunt in these parts. Not for women anyway.
A: Duh? That's their fucking job. That's what they do. Legislate, enforce, judge.
It’s their job to do this shit, and they can’t justify their job if they aren’t dreaming up new ways to stay in business. Lucky for you, the wild fucking west of community standards enforcement, is on the virtual horizon(s).
Hey, you wanted to know what the one-world government really was and how it would be achieved?
Well, now you know
It’s not going to be the big stuff, because “the big stuff” is nothing more than an amalgamation of the small stuff viewed from a certain perspective. The West and their laws are mostly based on the same principles, and The East is jumping on-board and “Westernizing” as fast as they can.
If you wanna check the pulse of the political planet, don’t look at The Middle-East, look at The Philippines. From there, you can see all kinds of interesting stuff going on both internally and in the immediate surroundings of the area. That’ll allow you to see both South American goings on and African goings on with completely different eyes, and will put a completely different spin on Russian, Chinese, American, British and EU goings on. You really think it an accident that The USA puts forth the idea of a new Space Force in the same week the The UK declares an environmental emergency?
But I could be wrong. Prolly am wrong. So let’s bring it home…
A: Yeah...what is on your own personal radar right now?
Ask yourself “what is important to me right now”. Cause chances are, that’s the exact same thing that “they” are interested in too. The thing is tho, “they” have a leg up on you because “they” have the power, and “they” also have the means/resources. You? Nah, you gave your power away…to “them”, and you gave “them” the means to use it. Kinda leaves you outta the loop in a lot of ways.
Funny old world innit?
I’ve never done this before, but lets us do it now. Let’s break this up into a two-parter kind of thing, and I’ll continue on with the other videos that were given to me in the next “Missive”. I have no idea what I’ve written above, but I do know that I’m currently on page 6 in my OpenOffice Writer app, and that is going to be pretty long for Roob to tangle with. So, let’s stop, we’ll pick this up…somewhere else.
Too Parter. That's funny
