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.

At 2:43 into the vid below…
”Because people stop making noise when they’re thinking.”
^How to deal with religious fanatics protesting concerts^
Speaking of religious fanatics and fanatical antireligionites, you think maybe 666 references time? More specifically, measures of time?
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.
The ideas they were chasing are indeed pretty cool. Seemingly anyway. But as I watched, it occurred to me that much of what they were exploring was pre-loaded. They spoke as if networking was some new concept, when in fact, networking is probably one of the oldest and most common things we humans are aware of. I guess it all depends on how you are looking at the data and how you are processing the information, but it occurs to me that “networking” is nothing more than a series of events that result in an endless stream of A to B nodes.
The concept of synchronicity was mentioned at the start of the film, but the topic was dropped, and pretty sure it wasn’t mentioned again. And where the film’s participants really seemed to get sideways, was when they jumped to using their models in predictory ways. Anyway, it was almost as if there were certain things they wanted to succeed, certain things they wanted to fail, and certain things they had no interest in letting them run their course(s).
Why am I talking about all this?
Because I came up with SoPi-O back on May 15th, and ever since then, loads of related stuff has been popping up here and there. No matter how many times it happens, coincidence is always jarring.
to me anyway
The repeating types of coincidence is even more jarring. Can be anyway.
^Heart-Crazy On You^
Not suggesting that looking at existing systems is dumb or pointless, because I don’t think that’s the case. There’s always something to see, and there’s likely tons of hidden traits/properties that even the designers/builders/discoverers/creators didn’t know were there. Mandelbrot found that out. The passengers of Aloha Airlines flight 243 found that out. Some of the people watching Black Sabbath perform War Pigs in Paris on December 20th of 1970 may have found that out too.
^Black Sabbath – “War Pigs” Live Paris 1970^
Lessee…where’d we leave off? I think I inadvertently mentioned SoPi-M at the end of the last one, but I’m not quite ready for that one. I am kinda ready for SoPi-O tho. And where I left off was kinda on the topic of finding your way when and where you are lost. Recognizing you are lost is a biggie. Denial is….well…not always advisable. In aviation, denial can get you killed…rapidly. Hence, “The Three C’s”:
It’s that simple. Climb, because your radio will have a greatly increased range at higher altitudes, and “broadcasting in the blind” is more likely to be heard by someone irrespective of where they are. Confess, because you are in deep shit, and those who might be able to help you are going to need the straight dope in order to accurately advise you how to best proceed, in order to get out of whatever mess you are in. Comply, because someone else giving you instructions and navigating/thinking for you is going to allow you to focus on the “The Three Rules Of Flying”:
1. Fly the airplane
2. Fly the airplane
3. Fly the airplane
Don’t sweat navigation, don’t sweat proper radio communication procedures, don’t sweat the regs, don’t sweat any of the ancillary types of thinking, just fly the fucking plane. You can loop back to all that other stuff when you get your head straight and find your bearings. The objective at this point is to get the fucking plane on the ground without leaving a smoking crater.
^Queens Of The Stone Age – 3’s & 7’s^
You don’t know this, but as of this writing, I’ve not finished drawing the O iterations of SoPi. That’s why I appear to be rambling about unrelated shit. But this is the stuff that I’m thinking about as I run the design of SoPi-O in my head over and over.
Where it may be applicable,
where it may not be applicable,
where really fucking odd uses present themselves.
Shit like that
Not much different than the redneck types of videos where the objective is to “do this and see what happens”. Some even go so far as to investigate why these things happen in the ways they do. I guess all discovery is like that.
^Masters Of Reality – She Got Me( When She Got Her Dress On) Official Vid^
As you can prolly tell by now, SoPi-O is an exploration of the decision-making processes we devise, under whatever auspices, when we are more likely to think independently, when we are more likely to think cooperatively, etc..
Pretty basic stuff really
But I’m trying to find my own path, and find my own way on my own path, so I guess it could be said that I’m being a selfish prick on this path to enlightenment. No matter how many outside sources I point to, no matter how many points of inspiration I reference, and no matter how much of this nonsense I share, I’m still likely to be viewed as a selfish prick trying to grab everything for himself. I considered using “themselves” at the end of the previous sentence instead of “himself”, but I didn’t. Too plural.
Not selfish enough
^Rush – La Villa Strangiato^
The I that is me,
The me that is we,
The we that is me,
The me that is I.
The above is something I’ve tossed around for a while, and really just trying to explore it a little more visually as I explore Pi, and the SoPi concept that I’ve kinda built around the concept of Pi. The “So” part is the contact point I guess. “So! Let talk about Pi!” That’s where this mess started. Taking a lot of existing junk, and creating some new junk with it. The main thing being, time. Considerations given to time and measure(s) from the perspective of an outsider…me. But in that nonsense at the start of this paragraph, where did “I” come from? Me? We?
^Space Project – Beyond Orion^
Maybe whoever interacts with us, and from which direction they come, is indicative of how we are likely to respond? Gotta take time into account tho. We build ourselves into becoming jaded old sad-sacks over time. Withdrawn, distant, cold, unreceptive, closed-off.
^Poison Idea “The Badge”^
Maybe there’s sometimes patterns within patterns that can help us better decide when we’re being egocentric, when we’re in a transitional state, and when we’re being selfless. Maybe not. Gonna be lots of opinions both inside and out as to what state(s) we are in.
^Immaculate “Wrecking Crew” (Live Overkill Cover)^
I just thought it might be advantageous to you, the reader, to see how some of this shit comes together. SoPi-O-000 (the first one) is just some letters/words in various font sizes to fit into these weaving and bulging and thinning shapes I’ve been thinking about. Kind of a cross between the weaving structure of DNA or threads, with some eyes for seeing embedded within. Something capable of both seeing, and being seen.
Q: You think it impossible for something to be capable of seeing and being seen?
And I’m talking about those somethings beyond the concepts of eyes or what we typically associate with seeing/being seen. Things like what we feel. And maybe even what feel in the absence of any perceptible input, nor any secondary indicators as to why we are feeling what we are feeling.
^Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis “Slowly Rot With Esclerosis Under Of Endocrinology”^
Maybe confusion is sometimes provocation for continuance? Further exploration? Exploration along unknown or even non-extent paths? Take for example some of the concepts that are explored in this series me and Roob started watching last night called “The Code”.
I’ve watched it several times. But like most sciences, there’s this prevailing “order out of chaos” type of mentality that seems to completely ignore the transitional and/or transient states. Someone is at “A”, looking for “B”, and the bullshit that is going to help you get there (“C”) is irrelevant. Gotta keep in mind tho, that I/we are looking backwards. The creators are looking forwards.
I – Looking backwards to see forwards.
They – Looking forwards to see backwards.
I guess it depends on the point of entry. There’s certainly a merging going on there.
11 iterations of SoPi-O, to get to the actual SoPi-O base, and three base iterations/permutations of SoPi-O. I admit that this particular result isn’t exactly where I originally saw myself winding up, but when I saw how related “M” was to “O”, they kinda meshed. And I’ll get to “SoPi-M” soon. It’s based on a geometric figure that I learned to draw when I was in elementary school. It’s quite cool. Anyway, let’s add a 12 iteration of SoPi-O, and see what we can see.
^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?

But speaking of lost, I think you need to get there.
Dunno the way?
Figure it out.
Give a shout when/if you find it.
