You may be wondering what war has to do with hockey. Does sport or even gaming have anything to do with war? Actually, I have no idea what you may be wondering. I only know what I am wondering, and what I am wondering about is the nature of conflict, and when/where/how it manifests. Who are those at odds, why are they at odds, and how does this evolve into war(s) which will further descend into battle(s) and combat. There appear to be many wars and many fronts. Maybe the term “war” has been inaccurately applied. Would be a good diversionary tactic. Draw attention away from the real fighting. Dangerous tho. Two fronts. That primary front is gonna have to fall.

^The Prodigy – Funky Shit Perplex Version^

No idea how many of those links you may have actually explored, but all of them are quite interesting, and they’re all related in some way, shape or form. Some links are stretchy, sure. But they are related. What really tied it all together for me was the story on the Hells Angels MC/Rock Machine MC and their war in Quebec, and a Canadian cop named Benoit Roberge.

2014

Benoît Roberge, ex-cop, sentenced to 8 years for gangsterism

2016

Former Montreal cop who sold police information to Hells Angel granted day parole

2017

Former Montreal cop who sold information to Hells Angel granted full parole

2019

La rédemption de Benoit Roberge

Not only was he apparently playing both sides, he got 8 years, was granted day-parole after 2 years, and full parole a year after that. Now, I dunno if you’ve seen the video of George Floyd being murdered face-down on the pavement, but I can’t help but wonder what’s gonna happen if these cops aren’t charged with a crime. They were suspended, then shorty after that they were fired, but as of this moment, they’ve not been charged with any crime(s). And not only will they need to be charged, they’ll need to be convicted.

Q: What happened to guilty until proven innocent?

A: OOPS!!! What I meant to ask, was what happened to innocent until proven guilty?

They’ve not even been charged, let alone tried, so how can we possibly jump straight to a conviction.

Slippery. Very, very slippery this slope is.

Someone is about to show us the way. Heard a term last night called ‘T&Trace’. It appears to be shorthand for ‘Track And Trace’…some new Facebook something. Today, I hear that Twitter has started to label some or all of Donald Trump’s Twitter account Tweets as “misinformation”. That says to me that someone is getting ready to show us the way. Take us by our tiny unwashed hands, and guide us to the promised land. Not before the bank forecloses on our current residence(s) of course.

Hey, that reminds me, I know that many if not most people only own one house/one home. Some of us own zero houses/homes. Heard last night tho’ that Johnny Depp owns 14 houses? Like, personal residences I guess? His money and he can do whatever in the fuck he wants with it, but it’s strange for me to think of owning 14 houses. I guess maybe it’s possible that he rents some of them out, but to whom I wonder. The one home under discussion was a $2.9 million dollar horse farm in Kentucky? Who the fuck has the money to rent such a place, and why would anyone with that kind of bread be renting instead of buying?

Strange world

But yeah, someone is about to show us the way. President Trump appears to have the FCC looking into social media companies and their practices.

^Planetary Assault Systems – Haiku^

What in the fuck is a service company doing in the editorial business anyway? Twitter is a service. A communications service like AT&T or Western Union or Verizon. AT&T ain’t in the business of censoring my calls. They provide a service with some stipulations, if I violate the terms I am subject to my service being terminated, and if they violate the terms…well, they either make it right or are big enough to pretty much avoid any major trouble from am insignificant worm like me. Any violations by any party may be subject to further investigation by some government entity. But it’s unlikely that AT&T is gonna monitor and potentially censor or edit my calls.

What I’m trying to figure out is why Twitter is not breaking out from under the umbrella and adding some additional service. Twit Tour or TwitterSJW or Twit Sewer or something like that. You see only stuff that makes you happy. Wait…users already have the ability to create their own echo chambers. Why this extra layer? And why this extra layer within the existing architecture? Are they trying to circumvent moderation of accounts and pruning of accounts entirely by slapping accounts with some scarlet letter? Could also be that maybe Twitter is outgrowing their existing architecture, and this is a workaround. Maybe Twitter is wanting to sell? That said, I’m wondering if that last update to the Twitter TOS maybe had something in there that I didn’t fully understand at the time.

^White Pony – Falling^

I do know this, it would be funny as fuck if Twitter management is trying to influence the upcoming election. The so-called Russian election scandal in 2016 wasn’t sketchy enough, so, fuckit…let’s go whole hog.

Q: Is it possible that Twitter creates their own bot accounts, spam accounts, and/or scam accounts?

A: Like, via 3rd parties? Pays people to “hack” or otherwise exploit their own service?

Nah…unpossible. Why on God’s green Earth would someone bankroll a phantom army to exploit their own service.

A: I can think of some reasons

Relevance is relevant, and there’s nothing better than being relevant, even if you have to make yourself appear relevant via sketchy means.

Has a Julian Assange or maybe a fight club ring to it

Not to mention, why would someone expend the resources to attack someone who is already under attack? Especially if you are operating under the assumption that you are the one doing the attacking. Yeah, like Russia thinks they are doing the attacking, but in fact Twitter is actually attacking themselves. Kinda hard to get a punch in on someone who is already getting mobbed.

Pretty sure it’s impossible to pop a balloon that is not inflated. What’s that? You wanna know what I’m talking about?

I just got a question from the Whatever However Hotline, and the question centered around humility and how one achieves it. Supposedly, we all of us have a something called “the ego”, and we seem to accept this as being true.

We have an ego, end of story

By the same token, we all of us have the capacity to have humility, yet not everyone actually has humility. Occurred to me that a good way to pump some humility into someone is by inflating the ego, then popping that motherfucker. Of course, you could also inflate the ego then let the air out gently. Guess it all depends on your motives and maybe your immediate needs. If you want someone with stiff knees to bow, yeah, you maybe wanna humble them. But if you want someone to have some humility, maybe the slow-release is the ticket.

You're driving the bus, you figure it out

Hope this either answers your question or gets you pointed in the correct direction.

Sitting and watching a movie with a friend, and I get a notification on my phone from YouTube. I’m subscribed to this person’s channel and have been for years, but, I don’t recall ever clicking that “notifications” bell thingie. That said…erm…sometimes I’m really not sure what to do. Not sure what to make of things. Is there anything to be done here? Or is there some course that needs to run?

^TAUNT SATAN IN THREE EASY STEPS…^

I’ve been following her on YouTube for years, and I’m honestly not sure what to make of that. I guess she/her channel got demonetized by YouTube, she started making some damn odd vids, and I was left a bit befuddled. They’ve only gotten more strange, but I can kinda empathize because I’ve ridden that razor of being a complete castaway for some time now. Some of her vids from way back helped me through some tough times, now it appears she’s up shit’s creek without a paddle, and I’ve no idea how to help. Can I help? Should I help? Plus, I’m a dude, so most people will likely think I just want to help her out so I can get into her pants/knickers.

Q: Why would I want to be in her pants, when it appears even she doesn’t want to be in them?

A: ? substitute “pants” with “shoes” if you're having trouble with the analogy ?

Good luck lady. Hope you find your feet ❤

Butler County lawmaker refuses to have temperature taken at Statehouse

From that article, here’s a direct link to the Facebook post, but there’s coupla interesting things:

Do you think if I weren’t a State Rep that he would have forced me? How is this any way to be treated?

Treated? How is that any way to be treated? Are you under the impression that you are to receive special treatment or get special privileges because you’re an elected official? Because you tout yourself as Chairwoman of Higher Education and because you claim to represent 115,000 Ohioans?

I’d guess you’re not just and only a State Representative, you’re also a US Citizen, an Ohio resident, Butler County resident, appear to be a woman, potentially human, maybe a gun owner or firearms enthusiast, a wage-earner, taxpayer…in short, you wear a lot of hats. Lots of hats means more rules, not less. Methinks your view of the layer cake may be a bit askew. But, “resent” is 2/3rds of “represent” so I guess maybe a healthy dose of resentment for what you were is required in order to become what you want to be.

^Tears For Fears – My Girls (Animal Collective Cover)^

Something else that has me scratching my head is…wait, this appears to have happened on May 27th of 2020. Did the Ohio Statehouse just reopen or something? This lockdown nonsense has been going on for months. Are you telling me that all this time, security at the Ohio Statehouse has not been upgraded/augmented to ensure that suspected COVID-19 infected people are given the boot off-premises? Temperatures haven’t been taken until now, and no one has been kicked off state property for being a threat to security?

Just checked the Ohio Legislative Calendar and went all the way back to January. While it would appear that some sessions have been canceled, it also appears that the place has been open for business through this whole thing. Maybe she’s been playing hooky from the legislative sessions, and this was her first day back to work in months. The only other thing that I can think of is that maybe she’s up for reelection in November. Let’s check that out.

BALLOTPEDIA-Candice Keller

Yep…her term as State Representative of District 53 expires 31 December 2020 when the 133rd Ohio General Assembly adjourns. She’s only been in office for 4 years, and Ohio term limits say she can be in that position for up to 8 years. She’s gotta be running, which means she’s campaigning. Let’s dig some more.

Controversial Butler County State Rep. Candice Keller Loses GOP Primary for State Senate Seat

DOH! She’s trying to upgrade from State Rep to State Senator. Ohio has 33 Senate districts, looks like she was trying to take the 4th Senate district, but lost in the GOP primaries to some dude named Lang.

Ouch

Not only will she not be moving to State Senate, looks like she’s out of a job entirely.

X: Where’ve you been?

Cade: You talking to me?

0: “Where’ve” is not something you see every day.

Cade: No it isn’t. Was just thinking that I can’t recall the last time I used “where’ve” in a sentence.

X: Where’ve you been?

Cade: This is about SoPi, isn’t it.

X: Maybe.

Cade: I forgot about it.

Z: That didn’t stop you from wandering off past SoPi-Z tho, did it?

Cade: You saw that did ya?

Z: …

Cade: Yeah I know that I have a few languishing, but at the same time, I’m getting close to the end.

X: This is about Victor.

Cade: I know. Had a lot of thoughts, wanted to write…

X: And completely forgot about SoPi-V in the process.

Cade: Did indeed forget.

Z: That didn’t stop you from wandering off past SoPi-Z tho, did it.

Cade: Is there an echo in here?

X: Zed. I wanna know about zed.

Cade: Having a tough time deciding when and where to use the Omega character in SoPi-V.

X: And if.

Cade: Correct, and if.

X: Why would you mix and match the Z/Zed character with the Omega character?

Cade: Good question. I don’t really know if Omega is representative of Z/Zed in this instance.

A: Are you changing any other characters?

Cade: No.

A: So why would you change Zulu to Omega.

Cade: Welp, my thought was that maybe 0/Zero could be better represented if I used Omega instead of Zed.

X: Flow.

Cade: Correct.

0: I’m gonna change the subject real quick. Do you really think it possible to create a verbal message in time, and postmark that message for delivery thousands of years in the future?

Cade: I don’t see why not. If we can transmit a message electronically and estimate how long it should take that message to travel a certain distance, I don’t see why a message couldn’t be sent from way back in the past to arrive in the now.

0: And you realize that we are talking about an audible message, right?

Cade: Welp, this idea isn’t a new one to me. But that thing about blackbodies the other day, plus some discussions with a certain someone about how events which are seemingly impossible to predict may in fact be predictable?

X: The short being, this is the first time you’ve given serious consideration as to how to explain to another how communications over time might be possible.

Cade: Correct. I’ve given the matter a lot of thought, it makes sense, just never expected anyone would want to hear about it.

X: And now, someone wants to hear about it.

Cade: They asked a question, it took me aback, I don’t know if they actually want me to go off on a tangent about how I see how this may be possible.

X: Relies too much on some risky leaps of faith.

Cade: Sorta. I would imagine the primary question is likely to be “what is the source?”

X: Bingo.

Cade: We make a lot of assumptions predicated on our own current abilities.

T: I think you may wanna explain that one a bit further if you can.

0: Try not to hurt yourself.

Cade: Noted.

X: Source.

Cade: Source and sources. What interested me was the potential delaying types of mechanisms.

X: Blackbodies.

Cade: Correct. A capacitor of sorts. A timing mechanism.

Z: Like…The Synchros?

Cade: The Synchros Of Time, yes.

Z: And what are those, prey tell.

Cade: Um…can we get back on track?

0: You were on track?

B: DOH!

T: Woah nelly.

X: BOOYA!

Cade: lolz…touché.

X: You were just looking up Interferometry. Do you even know why?

Cade: In order to send a message from a time to a time, you’re likely going to have to have some pretty accurate cosmological clocks.

A: Have you considered the length of the message being encoded with an iterative, and then placing that message in a stasis?

Cade: That’s what I was just thinking. If the dimensions of a blackbody were known, the message could be angled in such a way that its trajectory would basically keep it in a (for the most part) steady state for a certain period of time.

A: And what about the space the blackbody itself occupies and it’s proximity to the target/message recipient?

0: Not to mention that you’re going to have to take decay into consideration.

Cade: Maybe that’s a property of a blackbody which has not been taken into consideration.

X: Conservation of energy?

Cade: Perhaps.

X: You’re basically describing coiling an audible message like a clock-spring within a blackbody or some other space, and that message will remain within that space for a specified time, at which point it will leave that space along a certain trajectory for delivery.

Cade: You said it, but yeah I was thinking it.

X: And no decay.

Cade: Potentially. With the right calcs, perhaps keeping the string in unoccupied space might limit or even prevent decay or any kind of degredation to the message.

Z: Would need to be some awful stable particles and energy.

Cade: I’m not trying to make things more difficult than they need be, but surely the vectors themselves could potentially be utilized to reinforce some kind of referential integrity.

A: You’re attempting to avoid another layer.

Cade: Conservation of energy doesn’t make much sense if your throwing several megawatts behind the transmission source just so that a coupla hundred watts make it through.

Z: You’re lost.

Cade: I am lost. We’re discussing what equates to farting into a jar, closing the lid, then burying it in the sand for a thousand years so someone can eventually dig it up, open the jar, and smell the fart.

0: lolz…um, don’t you think that “speaking into a jar” might have been a better analogy than “farting into a jar”?

Cade: You’re probably correct. But we are talking about audible messages here.

X: Audible messages over time.

Cade: Supposedly, not much energy in those.

A: Depending of course, upon who you ask.

Cade: I don’t think Science puts much stock in “intent” nor “intentions”.

X: What about opportunistic relaying.

Cade: Now we’ve got arrays.

X: We need to get the message through.

Cade: So much of this seems to be based more upon unpredictability than predictability.

Z: You’ve absolutely no faith in absolutes.

Cade: Hey, I’m a product of my environment.

X: SoPi-V. May I make a suggestion?

Cade: Lay off Omega…noted

X: Three in one.

Cade: Four, actually. But who’s counting.

Z: …

So yeah, when I started writing this earlier today, it never crossed my mind that I would come up with a visual representation of some concepts about messaging over, time from a time to a time, and SoPi-V would be hatched.

Wanna see?
^Jay Lumen & Gary Beck – Strange Fruit (Original Mix)^

Straight up lied to you. Not gonna reveal SoPi-V for a while.

1. It’s incomplete, and I need to spend some time completing it;

2. This thing is already 9 pages long;

3. Prolly best that I do not reveal SoPi-V until some stories I’m working on are complete;

4. I got hit by a twist or two with respect to that blackbody shiz.

So yeah, didn’t really lie to you, it’s just not ready yet.

^Bow Wow Wow – I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish^

It’s creeping deep into Friday afternoon on 29 May, and I’m guessing that one or more of those cops who murdered George Floyd have been charged…

Usually gonna be difficult have a cop charged, tried convicted of 1st degree murder, and especially an on-duty cop acting in the line of duty. The District Attorney is likely only to go for what they think they can win. Because if you think Minneapolis is burning now, and these guys don’t get convicted, one of the Twin Cities is likely to become an only child…rapidly. Gotta take what you can get.

^Geri – Ride It^

First things first.

DARK = Dark "Type A"

LIGHT = Dark "Type B"

From a purely sight perspective, an all encompassing of either is going to be blinding via a different mode. So let’s turn to our ears. Sure, an all-light environment is going to be blinding, but what about sound? Can you hear? All that light is prolly gonna make things a little warm, so what about touch? Can you feel? All that heat is likely to start cooking you, so what about smell? Can you smell? I’m sure you smell delicious, so what about taste? Can you taste?

You can add similar there for an all-dark environment and wander around in those thoughts too if you want, but I’m still thinking on that “creation rethink” that I wrote for yesterday’s post. I was just brainstorming as I wrote that, and I got to thinking about the concept of needing to address certain things from the previous day on the following day. Meaning, it didn’t make sense to me to add them on the day that they were actually created. Certain things had to be created first, then they could seep into and propagate down the line. I have the advantage of looking backwards, so the forwards can make a little more sense. Like my addition of the somewhat antediluvian-ish concept of adding a “Day 0” to the mix. Another was creation of relative time prior to the creation of time itself, then further convolution and clarification of linear time(s) and non-linear time(s) as we went. I didn’t intend to create an hourglass type shape, but it kinda happened that way.

Dygruss

Anyway, it got me to thinking about seeing events from various sides of the event(s), and got me to thinking about the contextual light/darkness and the relative positioning required to discern one from another. A Venn diagram or Vesica Piscis might help with respect to visualizing the light/dark concepts, but only if they are in your field of view.

Q: If you are encapsulated in an all-light environment, but darkness exists elsewhere, can you see it?

A: Is there any way to detect an isolated and outside darkness in an all-light environment

I must know.

I derpmands answers!

GIVE THEM TO ME!

^Carly Rae Jepsen – The Sound (Live In Lapland, Finland)^

I realize that God said nothing about “the Meh”. Or, whoever wrote that story about God’s shenanigans doesn’t say anything about “the Meh”. Says nothing in the Bible about “God created the Light, God created the Dark, God created the Meh. Meh being that grey area right there in the muddle. But we ourselves are kinda in a grey area; we’re chasing light matter, we’re chasing dark matter, we’re chasing “why does this shit matter” matter…

all kinds of matter matters

I get the feeling that Science has long held that you can’t create “darkness”, because “darkness” is simply the absence of light. Welp, I also get the feeling that some in science might just be rethinking that one. Rethinking their thinking. There appear to be great big boiling pots of darkness out there in the Universe, and someone I know has pondered 8 levels of darkness “past dark”. Not gonna name any names, but once you get to 6, 7 & 8 are quite terrifying to imagine, so this unnamed individual stopped at 6, gave 7 a once-over, got a glimpse of 8 and instantly bailed.

If I lost you there, a theoretical realm of “dark past dark”. Like, once you’ve removed all light, and all is darkness, there’s deeper to go. 8 rings to be exact-ish. No idea tho. Like I said, everything past “0” was pretty horrifying to imagine, and I had to stop at 6 because 7 was almost incomprehensible. Actually it was incomprehensible. Just difficult to track how things moved…why things moved as they did…how “something(s)” were even detectable in this/these nothing(s)…what these nothings were…what forces were creating these nothings and how, etc..

Digress

You wanna know how it’s possible to get darker than dark? Welp, in retrospect, it’s pretty easy. Just imagine being in environment where it is as dark as it can possibly get. Once you’ve established “yep, can’t get no darker than this”it does. Maybe think about the sun setting, and how it slowly gets dark until eventually it can’t get any darker. Now imagine that once you’ve reached that “can’t get no darker” point, somehow, it gets darker.

I would suggest that maybe you try and picture a night where it’s gotten as dark as it can get, then some clouds and/or fog rolls in and covers the sky/stars which causes it to get even darker. But we in our modern world can’t really do that. When clouds roll in these days, it gets lighter because the artificial lighting we’ve created reflects and refracts off the clouds/fog and we get that “nite lite” kind of glow. High clouds are a bit different usually, but the moon can change that. Using the moon and its phases/position is also a good tool for experiencing/contemplating just how “dark” a darkness really is.

Q: Once light and dark have been separated, how do you get these two back together?

A: ¿?¿

I guess it’ll all come out in the wash.

^Years & Years – Shine (Official Video)^

Lightwater Valley. What are the chances of me stumbling across a theme park I’ve never heard of called Lightwater Valley, when trying my damnedest to write about roller coasters?!

But I’m still stumbling around in the dark.

And stumbling around in the light.

And stumbling around in the meh.

Lightwater Valley

They have what is now “the world’s second longest roller coaster”. It’s in the UK, was built by a railway company, called “The Ultimate”, and it appears to be, timewise, a damn long coaster. Wanna take it for a spin?

NOTE: This fucker has the longest damn coaster trains I’ve ever seen. Would take forever to ride the ride in every seat.

Would be a fun challenge tho
^The Ultimate Front Row Duo POV HD GoPro^

Typically, I’m watching a video and trying to focus on the content contained in the audio. If there is a video portion, I may be somewhat focusing on that, but it kinda depends. In this case, I was kinda watching the video, listening fairly intently to the audio, and letting my mind wander whilst listening to what is being said. Probably drifting from this to that, anything and everything from soda fountains and pay grades, to intercontinental particle accelerators and gamma ray bursts. Oh, and women.

Prolly pondering women

So at 07:31 into the video, when Schilke says…

“Structure’s the limit. The track can span, and the structure is the limit.”

…my head popped.

^Coldplay – Paradise (Official Video)^

Any idea what that means? To you.

“Structure’s the limit. The track can span, and the structure is the limit.”

When thinking about “structure” and “structures”, what pops into your head? In this context, we’ve got a designer/engineer of roller coasters, and his current primary job is to take existing roller coasters, and utilize the existing structure(s) to make a new roller coaster. Well, basically a new coaster. Yeah, a totally new coaster, using the existing structure. A new ride built within the existing framework(s) of an old ride. But when you personally think think structure(s), what do you think?

Steel?
Cement?
Wood?
Stone?
Plastic?
Water?
Air?
Electricity?
Heat?
CO2?
Body odor?

Gregariousness?

Hate?

Dreams?

Foot fungus?

Natural gas?

Orgasms?

Jacketed metal bullets?

Shock?

Trauma?

See how I drifted there? More solid, to less solid, to less tangible of the more or less tangible varieties. Just curious as to what “structure” really is. Is structure…contextual?

 Are structures...contextual? 

Electricity itself may not be that much of a structure/not real tangible, but the structure(s) that deliver it to our homes is/are pretty fucking solid. Not to mention that a lightning bolt is also pretty goddamn solid.

Sorta

In Schilke’s case, he’s basically saying that there in no limit to what the track can do. No length the track itself cannot span. No limit to the path, but there is a limit to the pathway. The existing roller coaster is gonna have an existing structure, and that existing structure is going to be sitting on an existing footprint. I just threw a new variable at you.

Footprint

Footprint (Disambiguation)

Ichnite

Not only are you limited by the existing coaster structure, you’re also limited as to any change you can make to it because of the ground that the structure sits on.

Q: What ground(s) does/do your structure(s) sit on?

A: ???¿

Just wondering how receptive/non-receptive you might be to new ideas coming in to completely change your favorite ride. I dunno, your feet might be set in stone. Maybe not.

Existing structures…and the pathways that we can create within them. Transport. Shipping. Piping in, piping out. Movement. Flow. All within the framework and frameworks of rigidity and maybe plus/minus some flex.

X: You’re bothered by your performance on the Kobayashi Maru.

Cade: I don’t know that I’d ever be in a position to take the Kobayashi Maru test.

X: You’re bothered by something. You feel there’s no way to win.

Z: I cannot help but agree.

0: Can we get a trifecta?

A: You’ve got your trifecta. Now, what’s the problem Cade?

Cade: There was something else that Schilke said during the course of one of those interviews that jarred me.

B: You were jarred twice in the same video?

Cade: Yes. He said something somewhere that was rather blasé and insignificant. Almost in passing.

X: But you can’t remember what it was.

Cade: I watched both videos with Roob, and have watched them both again and again. Whatever it was is gone.

0: You do realize that you watched more than just those two videos.

Cade: I realize that, but pretty sure it was in one of those two.

0: Yet you cannot find what you are looking for. Any chance you are wrong?

Cade: The evidence certainly seems to be pointing in that direction.

T: Is the evidence ever pointing away from that direction?

Cade: Meaning, am I ever right?

T: Correct.

Cade: Dunno about either of those.

T: You think that outside opinion is what establishes right/wrong or correct/incorrect?

Cade: Dunno about establishing, but certainly a degree of confirmation.

T: And what if this outside confirmation is incorrect?

Cade: Like, correct application of an incorrect assumption?

T: You wrestled with that word “assumption”. Any idea as to why?

Cade: I’m trying to keep my mind hanging on to the possibility that I need to go back and rewatch all of the Alan Schilke interviews, and do so whilst simultaneously entertaining new ideas.

X: It’s easy to get lost.

A: You don’t let me talk much.

Cade: You don’t talk much. In fact, you never talk. If you were wind in the dark with the volume turned all the way down? That’d be you.

A: Meaning?

Cade: You aren’t sound. You’re kinda like touch or “a” touch. A vibe.

A: That doesn’t mean you can’t let me speak.

Cade: If this is an attempt to lead my mind back to that point of contention/confusion, it ain’t working.

Z: Maybe you just haven’t walked far enough yet.

Cade: More feet and paths.

Z: More feet and paths.

0: You’re doing it again.

Cade: Letting my mind wander? Yep. You ain’t wrong.

X: So where did this start?

Cade: Me being bothered that I cannot remember what else Schilke said that jarred me so much.

X: Something about rest? Or maybe living in the moment?

Cade: Not directly, but it seems like it was something to that effect. Almost passé tho. Like, it happened, isn’t happening, looking forward to it happening again.

X: God Think.

Cade: Yeah. It was some kind of god-like thought. Got me to thinking about God only getting 7 days to do their thing, and that was all the time they ever got. Inspired me to write a post or three.

A: All the time they ever got.

Z: All the time they were ever going to get.

X: All the time that ever was.

Cade: Yeah…something like that. Seven days, and out. Zero, to seven, to zero.

T: How long you think that actually was?

Cade: I dunno. Time is dismissive and/or dismissible in most people’s lives for me to even attempt to elaborate.

0: Lazy?

Cade: Somewhat. Here and now? Sure…somewhat lazy. But to be fair, I don’t really know where to go that I haven’t already been.

X: And what does where you’ve been have to do with anyone taking the time to read this?

Cade: Good question. Primary on my mind is the length of this current convo.

X: And “length” is kinda where this all started.

Cade: Yes, the length of the track.

A: Length of the pathway.

Cade: You can get creative within the right structure(s).

A: Is length what it’s about?

Cade: Depends on the records you chase.

A: You wanted to do a Random Wikipedia Attack too, didn’t you?

Cade: I did. Not gonna.

A: And Morgellons?

Cade: My feet are a mess.

A: And hands?

Cade: They’re on my mind.

A: You think it possible that the “structure’s the limit/the track can span” actually was the thing that jarred you, and because of where your mind was, you are thinking that he said something else somewhere in the video that related?

Cade: It’s possible. I was thinking about the seven days of creation, the framework and structure of that time, and the pathways and time(s) that were contained within creation.

A: At that time.

Cade: Yes. At the time of creation, the time that was created, and the times contained within that time.

A: And the time and times outside of that creation and those creations?

Cade: Yes. Lots of observers created, and they’re viewing a shitload of creations over a shitload of times.

A: Outwards introspection?

Cade: Or inwards outrospection.

A: The ride looks different from the outside than it does from the inside.

Cade: Many methods and modes for “riding the ride”, as it were.

A: Scalar?

Cade: Sure. I guess it depends on the experience you want to have + where you want to have it + how you want to have it + any other considerations that you care to take into account.

A: Flow.

Cade: Godzilla prolly couldn’t ride a roller coaster, but they could sure as shit turn one into rubble.

A: Same ride, different rides for different riders.

Cade: Could ignore it completely.

A: That’s an option.

Cade: …

I think it’s about time we wind this lengthy fucker down…eh?

Reversals are big in medicine. Big in the medical industry. Two for the price of two. Maybe more.

Would a reversal be considered “anti”? Or would it be “anti-anti” seeing as how the original whatever that is now being reversed was the original “anti”.

That’s a lot of ante.

The ancient Romans were pretty smart. According to legend, they did a lot of stuff. Lots of empire building, lots of infrastructure building. You know something else that the Romans were good at?

Graffiti

With that in mind, and because of a video that was shared with me the other day that I will not be sharing with you, lets us ponder what this infrastructure building and empire building may have entailed. Not the real buildings and the real roads that get you there, let’s think about the virtual ones. Ideas. Dreams. Perhaps we should start with the idealists and the dreamers. Wise men and scribes.

These were usually among the first people to be liquidated amongst a conquered people, and I would imagine this is because these were likely the people behind the former management. The idea men. Gotta get that entrenched management out of your new territory, and you gotta rip the old shit out by the roots if you want your own new seeds to take hold.

But what about those place where you just cannot seem to get the root(s)? You chop that tree down, pull out the stump, but the fucker keeps coming back and keeps coming back. You might need to get clever. After all, we aren’t talking about physical trees here, we’re talking about ideas and dreams. Maybe infiltrate and corrupt those ideas and dreams. Build your own idea(s) into the existing idea(s) in order to corrupt it/them. We’re talking about writing here. If you burn or otherwise destroy all the old works (parchments, books, tablets, etc.) and then get rid of all the old workers who won’t convert to your new model, but the old shit keeps coming back somehow? Bring in your own team.

Infiltrate. Divide and Conquer

Eradication is damn near impossible in some cases. Matters of the heart and mind, spirit and soul?

Nightmares

So seeing as how the Romans were good at graffiti…

Q: Is it possible to add new text to an existing text in such a way that it is almost impossible to tell that what has been added is an invasive idea and/or invasive ideas?

A: ???

Most of what was written down in the ancient world is likely to have been A) law, B) historical accounts, or C) financial accounting(s). Yeah, there’s going to be scientific and creative stuff also, but almost all of what was written in the ancient world is going to likely be sanctioned, funded and overseen by some governing body. That means primarily documented power(s), stories of the exercising of that power, and stories about the wealth that was brought by the previous two things.

SO! You’ve got a nasty little province or two that irk the living shit out of you, and you decide that the best way to defeat these irritating fuckers is to bastardize the living shit out of their law(s) and/or religion(s). I mean, if you do it right, you could affect these fuckers for generations. Now you just need the right mole(s) to get in there and do some digging. You’re going to need to cover the range too. You’re gonna need to be overt, your gonna need to be covert, and you’re gonna need to be democratic as well. Patient, impatient, and forgiving. Gotta keep the opposition guessing. Confuse them. Not let them know that you are working every angle while keeping the same intent…destruction from within. In a few years, you could potentially have the entire population of this problem province believing that “only the holiest of the holy can wipe their asses with sandpaper and achieve cleanliness without damaging the flesh of thine ass.”

There are many considerations to be made. We are breaching the lines of cultural boundaries. Some smart ass out there might rub sandpaper all over their beast of burden. Might wind up looking like a jackass. Or some other asshat rubs sandpaper all over their entire buttocks. No real need for this asshole to do that…just rub the asshole and area immediately surrounding the asshole.

This shouldn’t be too much of a stretch. All kinds of weird and unusual laws on the books. But ya know, just because something is “legal” don’t make it right/correct. Also, just because something is legal doesn’t mean that I have to participate. So with respect to your intuition(s), what are they telling you? Not to mention, have you ever considered that maybe someone is doing a something thinking that it is the right way to be, but they’re actually just being played by some ancient practical joker?

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Proverbs 14:12 (KJV)

Hate can do weird things to people. Hate can sow some nasty seeds for some nasty long-term growths. So I ask again: where is your personal discernment? Can you tell right from wrong? Can you tell correct from incorrect?

You're basically pitting your own “natural law” will against “man's law” will(s)

Where has your knowledge of law(s) come from? What are you doing with this knowledge?

^Pretenders – Angel Of The Morning (Original Version)^

SONY DSC

So, in winding this rant down, this video that I saw was focusing on nitpicking the Talmud. I find this ironic since the Talmud itself deals with nitpickery. Anyway, it got me to thinking that just because some law tells me that I can do a certain something, it doesn’t mean I have to participate. Of course, if the law demands that I do a certain something or behave a certain way?

Yeah, we may have a problem

The video was talking about assorted unsavory nonsense in the Talmud, and then wound up showing a video that is said to be of some Jewish Rabbi putting his mouth on a newborn’s freshly circumcised willy. It’s right there. Certainly appears to be accurate irrespective of the narration. But I have a few suggestions for whoever created this video.

#1 

How about a warning in the video description that you are about to blind-side me with a short video clip of something that I may not want to see. Oh wait, you were too busy hawking your online “prepper” business in the description to waste time with such trivialities, and you’re also panhandling/e-begging for donations for your “equipment upgrades” to make more videos like this.

#2 

How about a warning in the video itself that you are about to blind-side me with a short video clip of something that I may not want to see. You’re the one putting these things together. Granted, you appear to be wanting/needing some new upgraded equipment, but yeah, you can prolly slide a warning into the video prior to anything unsavory that might appear in your content. Courtesy: ever heard of it?

#3 

Every dollar has a cost. Costs, even. Such thoughts might even get me the viewer to question which God you serve. Just sayin’.

#4 

If Jesus is coming back and going to destroy the whole fucking place, why in the hell do I need survival gear and survival supplies and all that shit? To survive The Tribulation? Dude… Chick… whatever… death ain’t a thing during the Tribulation. It’s all suffering. You can have all the freeze dried strawberries in the world and it ain’t gonna help. It would appear there’s gonna be entities of all kinds roaming hither and yon, slapping hamburgers out of peoples’ hands and otherwise fucking with your shit, and doing all of this to remind and/or educate you as to who owns the place.

Yeah, the main reason I’m not linking you, the reader, to this video is because it’s inflammatory click-bait, and I’m not going to participate in the video’s further propagation. Says it’s click-bait right there in the title with their “WATCH NOW, THIS WILL GET PULLED DOWN” bullshit, but I watched for a friend, with a friend. Otherwise, no, prolly wouldn’t have watched it.

I guess I myself could be accused of using racy images and/or controversial music. Controversial opinions on controversial topics. Might make one wonder what kind of standard(s) I employ. What I’m after? Why? Shit like that. Good questions all. I have no answers.

OH WAIT! I DO HAVE AN ANSWER IN THIS CASE!!! 

I write about what I see. I share what I see as, when and where I saw it. So say, if I’m looking for geometry/geometric images, and I somehow and for some reason stumble onto an image of some woman digging in her butt? I may just share that image.

Meh, I was only two pages in, and I completely lost interest in this one. Did eventually cover some ground(s) tho.

X: You gonna leave me out forever?

Cade: No, that’s not my intention.

X: You aren’t listening.

Cade: Dunno if that’s entirely correct.

0: You as a the individual that you are just cannot approach a pile of shit without stopping and considering what it would be to step in it, can you?

Cade: Dunno if that’s entirely correct either.

X: You’re lost.

Cade: Ya’ll are batting 1000%.

X: Any idea as to which is correct, and which is incorrect?

Cade: So, if I’m understanding correctly, this is not about being correct/incorrect at all.

T: What do you think it’s about smart guy?

Cade: Speed.

Z: Speed? Or frequency.

Cade: You’ve lost me there.

Z: How many times do you have to be told to do something, before you actually do it?

Cade: That’s a good question. Have you given any consideration as to why I may not be doing a certain something?

B: Rebellion.

Cade: Sorry for having to paint you into a corner B, but as I’m thinking about it now, that speed and frequency bit is a tough one to chew on whilst considering the “request & compliance” model that is forming in my head.

X: You’re riding a wave?

Cade: Yes.

X: But you aren’t moving.

Cade: Correct. A sine wave.

C: Wave after wave of sine waves, and you are stationary….motionless.

Cade: Correct.

0: Would a saw-wave be a better model maybe?

Cade: I don’t think it matters. I think what we are discussing here is the point at which one “intercepts” the wave.

Z: A mark.

Cade: Correct.

Z: Acknowledgement.

Cade: Correct.

Z: Compliance.

Cade: Also correct, but that’s a whole ‘nother ball of wax now ain’t it?

0: Have you ever noticed that your vernacular changes whenever you wander off into the more subjective realms?

Cade: Welp, makes sense…don’t it?

B: How so?

Cade: Just because I accept a task or mission or whatever, doesn’t mean that task is gonna get carried out.

X: Customer satisfaction.

Cade: Exactly. Shit isn’t gonna get better just because I take the job on.

A: So, by avoiding the message, and by avoiding this task, things don’t get worse?

Cade: Oh for fuck’s sake 0. If you’re gonna hide behind “A’s” persona, at least try and act like her.

0: I don’t follow.

Cade: But I should?

Z: Booya.

A: What if I asked him to ask as me?

Cade: I don’t think any of this really addresses the random and somewhat bizarre nature of…of…of…

U: Less than standard communication(s)?

Cade: Now who in the fucking fuck is this fuck?

U: I’ll give you a hint.

Cade: Lemme guess…”U”? ”Not You?” Like, not me you, but you?

U: Not.

Cade: Hi.

X: Speed. Lets get back to it. This is running a little long.

Cade: You shouldn’t react to everything.

X: All of that, just to say, “you shouldn’t react to everything”?

Cade: Non-reaction is still a reaction.

0: Just less proactive.

Cade: Less reactive maybe. I dunno what “proactive” would even mean in this context.

Z: What about in the case of omens?

Cade: That’s actually a really good question. Any precursor, that you eventually act on, would in fact be proactive.

T: We gotta sometimes twist these things to get you to think.

Cade: It’s an interesting thought. The message arrives in 1986 that something really bad is gonna happen in 2011, you sit on this information until 2010, act on it…

X: And it appears that you were being proactive.

Cade: Correct. But I really wasn’t.

A: How so?

Cade: The event had already happened.

0: Wait, wait, wait just a minute there sparky. What do you mean “the event already happened”?

Cade: The event had already happened, otherwise, I would not have been able to see it.

0: But you eventually prevented it?

Cade: A mindfuck ain’t it? In order to prevent something, it has to happen.

Z: The basis for a more solid engineering.

Cade: Certainly gets one to thinking about the nature of “preventative anything”.

X: It happened, it never happened.

Cade: Almost like 3-point parking. Forward, back, forwards.

Z: Onwards and upwards.

Cade: So yeah, speed and accuracy. Just because I’m getting “synchy” messages doesn’t mean I need to shit my pants.

0: Shit your pants..do a dance…we’ll sign you up for the Ringling Brothers.

Cade: It’s a circus. Can be anyway.

X: And what about this business with the points?

Cade: OH! Yeah, um, scanning the bands. It just occurred to me that instead of looking for a complete message on a single band, maybe a message was sent in parts over multiple bands.

X: And that completes the “synchronistic communications model”?

Cade: You sure are asking a lot of questions today.

U: Answer the damn question.

Cade: It might complete a message. I dunno about it completing any model.

X: Complete the model for “a” message.

Cade: Maybe. I’ve no idea. It could get messy.

X: Anything spring to mind?

Cade: Well, now that I think about it, that Bible cross-reference image that Jordan Peterson used in some of his talks could shed some light.

T: You’re thinking non-sequential and less-sequential.

Cade: Correct. And now that I think about it, the whole damn thing could eventually collapse.

Z: Only if someone isn’t on their toes.

Cade: I just pictured the whole damn thing folding.

X: Don’t you think there might be other information to follow when and as the original message is erased?

Cade: Sure, it’s possible. But if we really are untangling certain knots…

0: The whole rope could vanish.

Cade: That’s…what I’m seeing.

0: Voids.

Cade: There’s still data there in the/a void. Its all in how we interpret it. What jarred me just then was watching the information that only previously occupied that void disappearing.

X: A big crunch.

Cade: Again, I don’t know. I just know that the more of the points in the arcs disappeared, the more the message made less sense.

X: The more…the message…made less sense. Less is more?

Cade: So it would seem.

X: …

Sup douchebag. Or, douchebags…if there are more than one of you. Doing OK today? Wanna travel a potentially dark path? Me either too neither also.

Q: Why do Christians hate Satanists?

A: ? ? ?

The concept of Satan and/or Satanism springs from your own mythos, right? So I really don’t see what you get in such a twist over every time that/those particular part(s) of your own bullshit is mentioned. Seems like all you need to do in order to defeat Satan or Lucifer or the Devil or whoever, is edit them out. Redact their evil ass(es) from The Bible.

 Problem solved

But wait, you can’t do that can you? Not only does God say not to change one word, but you can’t remove the opposition. The opposite is what allows the entirety of the structure(s) to stand in the first place. Man, you guys are staring down the barrel of Gnosticism aren’t you. I mean, you’re gonna have to face the fact that you’re eventually gonna have to blame God for everything at some point, and I get the feeling that this is almost the entirety of what makes up the basis for Gnosticism…

blame God

Or if you want to avoid those pesky Gnostic conundrums, you can just keep Big Red in The Bible, God is off the hook, problem solved? Is that how this works? I’m asking because I don’t know.

^Iron Maiden- The Prisoner^

You really don’t think I think you’re a douchebag, do you?

You aren't, right? 

I wouldn’t sweat being called names…

X: Can I add something here?

Cade: Oh, hello. I’m sure you can add something with a modicum of effort.

X: How do you figure that you completely forgot that your favorite Iron Maiden song even existed?

Cade: Woah. I woulda expected a question like that to come from 0: or T:.

X: Anyone but me?

Cade: Pretty much, yeah.

0: Do you have an answer?

Cade: Welp, you’ve kinda muddied the waters as to what question needs to be answered.

B: No…you did that.

Cade: Muddied the waters?

B: Yes.

Cade: I realize that. But X: typically doesn’t start conversations via a rather detailed question.

Z: Are they typically more of an “observational” type of instigator?

Cade: Yeah. Fuzzy, but knowing.

F: What in the hell does that mean?

Cade: Welp, can I answer the original question first?

T: Will that give you time to think about how to respond?

Cade: Yes. And in answer to how I could possibly forget that my favorite Iron Maiden song even existed? Time.

X: Time, and…???

Cade: Time and rejection.

X: Rejection?

Cade: Yes. I started to “reject” heavy metal music when it started to get kinda…

Z: Foofoo?

Cade: Yes. Foofoo, or fufu or whatever. Frilly. Sparkly. Glam.

Z: You wanted to stay in the dark.

Cade: Yeah, something like that. I was just beginning to understand the dark, become comfortable with the dark.

X: And then?

Cade: Light.

0: Too much focus on the dark creates a glare.

Cade: Now that you put it like that, yeah. Like flicking on a light just as your eyes have adjusted to the dark.

Z: Or coming indoors on a bright and sunny day?

Cade: Yeah that too. Not grey as much as a weird mish-mashy rainbow of colors trying to find where they go/where they need to be.

X: That’s quite the description. Ever thought of it like that before?

Cade: Not really. But now that I think about it, it’s almost like shoving a rainbow flavored sno-cone into your eye.

T: How many time do you think you’ve heard that song The Prisoner?

Cade: A bunch. I used to listen to it over and over.

T: The song has a lot of colors.

Cade: Indeed it does. Up-tempo with a down-tempo intro, clarity, confusion, decision, anger, hope…

X: …and rejection.

Cade: Yes! That song does have some “rejection” overtones in it doesn’t it?

X: I hadn’t noticed.

Cade: lolz

X: 😉

F: Ahem.

Cade: I gotta scroll up, because I forgot what you asked.

F: Don’t bother.

Cade: K.

X: He’s gonna “bother” you know.

F: Why would he, when I specifically requested that he not?

0: Because he wants to know.

T: He thinks he does.

B: In the event the question is raised again.

Cade: Do I need to be here for this conversation?

F: Don’t do what I asked you not to do, and the problem is solved.

Cade: Not from my vantage point.

F: You scrolled.

Cade: Indeed I did, and in answer your original question, “knowing an answer” does not necessarily mean that you know how to provide that answer to a particular individual?

F: You were thinking of anecdotal evidence as you typed that.

Cade: Of course I was.

F: To relate the answer?

Cade: I would say, “to better relate the answer”, but that’s just me.

F: And why is that?

Cade: Because I can have the answer to a question…

T: But that doesn’t mean that you understand it.

Cade: Correct. Even less so with respect to answering an individual.

F: You know a lot of things you don’t understand?

Cade: Um, I think I need to be careful in answering that.

X: Booya.

Cade: Booya indeed.

F: What does that mean? “In your face F:?”

Cade: No. It is a correctness in the moment which buys more time for contemplation on if and how to answer your question.

F: Wait, you are saying you have answers to questions, and you don’t understand these answers, therefore you are hesitant to share these answers you have, simply because you yourself do not understand them?

Cade: Yes. Not always mind you.

F: What the hell does that mean?

Cade: Wow, my head is suddenly a train wreck.

Z: If only you were able to find a relatable anecdote, you wouldn’t be in this mess.

Cade: Tru dat.

F: You probably just have an inner desire to talk. Therefore your first instinct is block direct answers so as to inspire conversation.

Cade: Welp, that’s complete bullshit. I’m typically told that I have the finesse and delicacy of an asteroid slamming into the Yucatan Penninsula.

0: He ain’t lying.

F: How so?

A: Usually, he gives very direct answers in order to avoid conversation.

Z: Dry as the desert.

X: Heartless as stone.

T: All to avoid confusion.

Cade: Oy vey.

0: Oy vey indeed.

Cade: Avoid any perception of being deceitful.

X: Take the beating.

Cade: Forever and always, take the beating.

X: Booya.

F: Take the beating?

Cade: Get it over with. The beating is going to come irrespective of how the information is provided.

F: No justification? No rationalization?

Cade: Wait a moment here, anyone reading that might become confused as to who is rationalizing what.

Z: And why.

Cade: And why.

F: I’m confused.

Cade: Yes, I have many answers. Yes, I have many answers that I personally do not understand. Yes, I have grown hesitant in providing said information when asked for it.

F: Perhaps you are trying to avoid these beatings afterall?

Cade: Do you know what comes after?

F: Can you explain that? I don’t understand.

Cade: After someone asks me “do you know…”, and I answer directly and succinctly, do you know what comes after?

F: Another question?

Cade: Exactly. What I know, then after I tell what I know comes the question of how I know it.

F: And then?

Cade: Its a mess.

F: So, you know a bunch of stuff, but don’t know how you know it.

Cade: There are libraries you know.

F: Meaning…what?

Cade: We encountered eachother. It’s highly unlikely that I know something that others don’t know. So if you want a different source, there are plenty available.

F: Wait, is this about synchronicity?

Cade: Somewhat. Time. You want something in a timely manner, I give it to you, perhaps that saves you some time from having to go somewhere else to get it.

F: And if you don’t answer my question?

Cade: Then perhaps I was not the one that was supposed to give you the information you needed. I’m not a fucking ATM machine.

F: And what is that supposed to mean?

Cade: Go ask an ATM machine for a bottle of Dr. Pepper a bag of Cheetos and find out what I mean. Might ask the ATM machine what it thinks of the new Avengers movie whilst you are at it. Chat about the weather. Perhaps ask for investing advice or get them to comment on your wardrobe choices.

F: I would not do such a thing.

Cade: I don’t care if you would or wouldn’t.

F: Why don’t you care?

Cade: Because I don’t. “Fuzzy knowing”, I would think anyway, is not as much about whether or not to provide information requested, but how to provide the information. A “rock” is not just and only “a rock”.

F: It is if it’s a six mile wide asteroid slamming into the Yucatan Peninsula.

Cade: That isn’t a rock at all…it’s a missile.

0: If I may be so bold as to interject, this is getting a bit long, don’t you think?

Cade: It is indeed.

F: …

If you want answers, I got em’. Step right up and get your answers.

Ya know, I gotta admit…

…I didn’t have the slightest desire to drop anything upon reading the text of that tweet. In fact, the only thing that I had a sudden desire to do, was that I seemed to have a sudden desire to NOT go read your full-length six-section ebook with its searingly urgent and imminent message. And what’s with the Pepe The Frog MOAB? Didn’t Alex Jones get sued for using shit like that?

Hey you! Yeah, you…the one who is reading this right now. Do you even know what a MOAB is?

THERE we go! That last one is what we are looking for. It’s not a daisy-cutter. What’s that? You dunno what a daisy-cutter is? Welp, you can go look it up your own damn self if you wanna. Anyway, I get the feeling that whatever this searingly urgent message is, is prolly more along the lines of investment advice and/or some kind of corporate signaling. That’s just me being conspiratorial tho.

^Thievery Corporation ft. Gigi Rezende – Pela Janela [The Cosmic Game]^

Movies are supposed to be entertaining. Movies are supposed to be titular. Exciting. Interesting.

Entertainment. Movies are something you are supposed to want more and more of. With respect to those concepts…

Q: Does the blending of “the hideous” within a wrapper of “entertainment” muddy meaning(s)?

A: ???

More than that, would you know if movies had switched in their usage/utilization between a medium of entertainment, and one of entrainment? Not indoctrination, as much as entrainment. An intentional mixing/blending of concepts in order to manifest certain emotions that typically operate on different frequencies and/or carry different resonances?

Lemme give an example. Recently, the “antihero” archetype has become quite prevalent in movies, and especially superhero flicks. There’s nothing new about the antihero, but the depictions of them in movies is quite new. Ace Ventura is an antihero. The Man With No Name is an antihero. Frankenstein’s Monster is an antihero. Charles Kane is an antihero. The Shadow is an antihero.

Wait a minute here…there’s nothing new about antiheroes, except in superhero movies. Depictions of superheroes with flaws…maybe that’s what is new here. But that can’t be, because all superheroes have weaknesses. So why is it, that I would get the idea that someone is trying to use subtleties in the medium of movies to influence my outlook on certain things? Oh, that’s right, it’s because there are fucktons of people out there who are battling over the hearts and minds of the masses.

Maybe that's why I'm confused
^Sorten Muld – Bonden og Elverpigen (lyrics)^

What do you get, when you try and unconfuse someone who is not confused? Like say, I am a someone who already has the same ideas about perfection as you. If you think that I am someone who does not share your views on perfection, and you start hitting me with concepts specifically designed for those with opposing views, how would I react to those concepts? Nodding agreement? Or is confusion the more likely outcome. After all, wouldn’t you be preaching to the converted? That leaves me with no other conclusion than to wonder why in the fuck you are talking to me at all. Recruitment? Initiation?

 Some kind of security check?
^Renegade Soundwave – Cocaine Sex (LP original)^

Here’s the dealio, I started writing this whatever yesterday morning, and yesterday afternoon, I watched a coupla movies that confused the living shit out of me. Quite sure they confused me because I didn’t understand the characters and their motivations. But the movies were Split and Glass.

Split (2016 American Film)

Glass (2019 Film)

What in the fuck is a stealth sequel? 

The Wiki page for Split says that Split is “Hollywood’s first stealth sequel”. Anyway, I was kinda confused by the motivations of the character in Split. But then again, I had a tough time trying to decide if Split was a metaphor for government(s), more than it was a story about some nutcase living in a bomb shelter/prepper bunker.

The reason I thought the movie might be metaphorical, is because killing is the only answer. And not just and only killing, but theft, thievery and overbearing/obtrusive enslavement. Murder is also theft, slavery is supposedly illegal as is involuntary servitude. I’m kinda avoiding the topic of kidnapping because I’m trying to understand any points that Shyamalan might be trying to make in the subtext. Kinda sad really, because I sometimes feel that I can’t watch and enjoy a movie without nitpicking the fuck out of the story for “hidden meanings”.

Le sigh

It gets worse tho, because I then watched Glass. Oy vey, it only got muddier from there.

^public enemy – lost at birth – Apocalypse 91…The Enemy Str^

Glass seems to focus on the concept of ‘Due Process’.

Due Process

‘Due Process’ is top down. That means in order for the concept to be valid, it must be respected and honored from top to bottom, at all times.

This is the Achilles’ heel of every superhero, and the eventual destruction of every supervillan…when and if to respect someone else’s rights. I guess this is why the concept is ever-present in comic books. You’ve got people who are sick and tired of waiting for the slow wheels of justice to turn, and they take matters into their own hands. We’re talking about folks here who likely trust these systems of government implicitly, and when these governments and their systems don’t deliver? Anger and rage are swift amongst the converted.

These governments get their due and proper from us after all, on time and without fail, otherwise these governments and their arms of retribution are swift and firm with us. It’s almost as if these government are indifferent to our taxpayer-on-taxpayer crimes. Wait, I meant to say citizen-on-citizen crime(s). But yeah, this third party is indifferent as to what has transpired, and even if anything has transpired. After all, they are late to the party. But at the start of the movie Glass, the “heroes” are being accused of denying criminals their right to ‘Due Process’. In other words, the government wants their piece of the action. Ironic that this character who accuses the heroes of denying rights to ‘Due Process’, themselves denied the heroes their rights to ‘Due Process’.

I’m not going to spoil the movie further, but I’ll just say that both movies are some really great stories with fucktons of flaws. I almost get the feeling that these flaws are intentional, only because I know that Shyamalan is a clever motherfucker and a great storyteller. But let me add one last thing here real quick…

Good Samaritan Law

Yes, whether you know it or not, there are indeed laws that dictate behavior. Laws that eradicate choice completely, and lead to a ridiculously twisted web of “what I would have done in that situation” types of debates.

/me rolls eyes
^Madeleine Peyroux – J’ai Deux Amours^

giphy

So…there is a law…it states that you must stop and render aid if you see a car crash.

So…there is a law…it states that you cannot carry a pocket knife on your person.

So…there is a car crash in front of you. You stop because you are legally obligated to do so.

So…a person in one of the cars is trapped because the seat belt is jammed from the impact.

So…the car is on fire.

So…you have no way to cut this seatbelt because knives are illegal to carry.

So…you are required to be a superhero, but your hands are tied.

So…this law required you to stop and watch/witness this person burn to death as you stand helpless.

Yep, it’s a mess.

Good luck!

^Renegade Soundwave – Thunder^

Don’t ask me how in the fuck this started off with contemplating the concept of defects in your own religion’s mythos, and wound up contemplating comic books and movies. Just kinda…happened that way.

^Los Twangers – Vista Cruiser 69^

Is it possible to plan chaos? I bet a healthy dose of order would help.

Sorry, just really lost in this concept of onscreen retribution and/or vengeance. But then again, I guess onscreen forgiveness would be boring as fuck. A superhero wandering around absolving criminals of their crimes? What a snoozefest. The hero could just as well stay home, kick their feet up, have a beer, eat some Doritos and watch television. That would be a good show model for product placement tho.

How many people do you know? I’ll wait while you think.

Now, how many of those people that you know, do you get actually along well with? I’ll again wait while you think.

How many people did you used to get along with, that you no longer get along with?

See where I'm going with this?

It’s likely, that you are a selfish fuck who only likes/gets along with people that serve your needs. Every single person on this planet was put here to serve you and your needs.

^Sisko Electrofanatik & T78 – Bon (Original Mix)^

OK…so…perhaps that was a bit strong. Just wondering if you ever wonder why people don’t like you. Why you have no friends. Why you can’t meet people or have trouble meeting people. Why you can’t keep friends. But I wasn’t wondering just and only that. Was thinking about how we meet, how we develop relationships, what pretenses we have for developing those relationships, and who gets to decide where these relationships go. My guess is, you play a 50% role in 100% of the success or failure of a relationship. That’s just a guess.

^Front 242 – Happiness (Dub Mix by Underworld)^

Have you ever noticed that in these “supernatural videos”, the ghosts or spirits or demons or poltergeists or whatever type of entity they are, will play havoc will electrical systems and/or electronic gizmos of all kinds…but for some odd reason…the cameras always keep right on rolling?

Bark 

Right now…bark. Go on…

you can do it

Drop those inhibitions, and bark, out loud, right now. Bark, laugh, stand on one leg, then repeat that whole process for the next hour. Yeah, this is just me, but a complete stranger barging into your space and demanding that you perform specific tasks on command is an odd concept to ponder. I guess spirit has no rights. Better not die. Paybacks are prolly a bitch in the afterlife.

^Young the Giant: My Body [OFFICIAL VIDEO]^

Speaking of spirit…

Wonder (Emotion)

I miss wonder. Well, I think I don’t miss wonder as much as I wonder why I’m told to qualify any emotions that I have which lean towards awe, amazement or even just plain old excitement of being astonished. For example, according to my YouTube feed, Space-X has launched about 30 rockets this past week. Well, maybe not 30, but every damn day there is a live feed of some new Space-X launch. Should I feel bad about staring in amazement at what this group has accomplished just because there are those that think Elon Musk is some freaky futurist who is hell-bent on some kind of world domination? Why are you looking for tyrants? Doesn’t your being hell-bent on looking for tyrants, exposing tyrants for what they are, and eventually eliminating tyrants, make you yourself…a tyrant?

^Stromae – Alors On Danse (Clip Officiel)^

Things like this really gets me to wondering…

These “paranormal events” always seem to happen randomly with no provocation, then the investigators show up, and demand a repeat. Fair enough. It’s part of the scientific method after all.

Demonstrable AND repeatable = proof

But you know the problem with being a magician? You can know every trick in the book, but you are still just a one-trick pony. Anyone you encounter, who discovers that you are a magician? Can you guess what their first query is going to be? Yep…

”Do a trick” 

The next query will be…

”Do another one!”
^Kendall Schmidt and Logan Henderson – Next Step^

Most “paranormal investigators I’ve seen do this. After the first trick is performed, you ask for another…then another, and it goes on and on like that. After you conclude one “investigation”, you start another. Lots of purported haunted sites after all.

Q: Do you only investigate sites that you are invited to?

A: Doesn't that make you a vampire?

Of sorts.

^The Ting Tings – Shut Up and Let Me Go^

Wait…just…one…fucking…minute, and hold the fucking phone. I think I get it now. If you correctly/accurately locate and properly identify the Antichrist, that must mean that Jesus is right around the corner…right? Is that’s why these fucks label anyone and everyone as the Antichrist? Eventually, they’ll get it right, Jesus will show up shortly after, and you’re home free. That said, I wonder what Jesus is going to have to say about your shitty batting average(s)?

Q: Why is the Antichrist called “the” Antichrist?

A: It's not like Jesus is “The Jesus”.

Except in the movie The Big Lebowski…There’s a Jesus in there that is “The Jesus”.

^WoodKid – Run Boy Run (A Level Music Video)^

HEY! I learned a new “sync” definition recently. It’s when advertisers leech off of fine art in a particular ad in order to play on your subconscious whether you realize it or not. Or when scenes in certain movies emulate scenes depicted in some painting for the same reason(s) as advertisers. Sure, I’ve seen loads of stuff like this before, but I’d never before associated this and these types of recognition as…”syncs” or, “synchs” as I prefer to call them. Association(s) via distant, vague and/or wispy/foggy recognition methods. Like overlaying a not so clear something, with a very clear something that somewhat resembles the original.

We’re kinda used to similarities and deviations in language, but no so much with visual-only types of aspects. I mean, if you see a film that has a scene which reenacts a depiction of a famous painting, do you realize what you are seeing at the time? Do you know the painting? If so, do you like it? Do you hate it? More than that, if you are unfamiliar with the painting, and see it after you see this movie, does how you felt about the movie affect how you feel now about the painting?

Q: Did you know that the main melody from this next song is actually a sample from the Goldfinger soundtrack?

^Sneaker Pimps – 6 Underground – Official Video [HD]^

For those of you into this kind of thing, did you know that Christopher Walken’s character in the movie Joe Dirt was called “Gert B. Frobe”? Did you know that “Gert Fröbe” is a real person? I did, but I never made that connection before. Not before now anyway. Watched the movie Goldfinger the other night, and it struck me that the actor playing Goldfinger also played Sgt. Coffee Pot in the movie The Longest Day, and I’ve seen them in a bunch of other movies, so I looked them up. There is was… Gert Fröbe. At long last, that small bit from the movie Joe Dirt made sense.

Where are we? Who’s driving this fucker? Maybe when relationships become relationsips, we drown ourselves in not much of anything. Of course the flipside is, we learn things about people as we go, and there’s likely to be all kinds of shit lurking in that past that you’d rather was not there. Get rid of them, move on, problem solved. How’d all that old shit get dug up anyway. What is this, some kind of initiation process?

^Lunachicks – Heart Of Glass^

Let’s say that there are 8 billion humans on a certain planet, and you are lucky enough to have three close friends. That means that you are close friends with 0.000000000000375% of the humans on the planet. Well done. Now, let’s see how connected you really are to this planet and/or the life on it.

Humans share the planet with as many as 8.7 million different forms of life, according to what is being billed as the most accurate estimate yet of life on Earth.

Aug 23, 2011 – Source: Google – 27 April 2019

So…there are 8.7 million different forms of life on Earth/Terra, and you are friends with 0.000000000000375% of only 1 form of life. Tell me, how do you personally feel about other forms of life? Best buddies with roaches? Wasps? Ants? Sharks? Stray dogs? Armadillos? Flies? Treponema pallidum?

Yeah, I didn't think so

Your home is a pest-free zone, and you aim to keep that way. Damn…if you don’t mind me saying, you are one completely disconnected and totally fucked up individual. No wonder you are single.

^Headhunterz – Rock Civilization^

I wonder how wobbly things like pyramids would look if you could view them over very long spans of time. They’d likely not only be wobbly, but also bouncy and spinny. Maybe that’s why the outer coverings of the Pyramids of Giza have come off, and maybe the key to these pyramids rigidity and eventual longevity is actually because they are quite…

flexible

Like, over time and times, they roll with the punches, and accommodations were made for these flexions in the original construction. Hell, maybe that’s why the outer covering was added. Viewed through the right eyes over the right spans in time, there’s a lot you could learn about the planetary dynamics that affect certain structures or even certain areas where these structures are built. If one were so inclined anyway.

^Mr. Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Remix Radio Edit)^

Was watching a documentary with a certain someone, and the subject of transubstantiation came up. I guess at the Council Of Trent, there were questions as to whether Jesus turned from God or spirit or whatever, into a human. The Catholics appear to have had a desire to know, and the Protestants just wanted to chalk it up to “mystery”, and move on.

0: Can I interject?

Cade: Can I stop you from doing so?

0: Not really, no.

Cade: Fire away.

0: I forgot what I was going to ask.

Cade: I’ve been having that problem a lot lately.

K: Forgetting things are you?

Cade: Hello there. Long time no see. And yes, forgetting all kinds of things.

K: Are you worried?

Cade: Not really. It’s not like I can do anything about it.

K: Have you looked into supplements? They are making some amazing things these days.

Cade: Their claims are amazing. Not so sure about what their products deliver other than some amazing profits to them.

K: What’s wrong with prophets?

Cade: I dunno. Sure seem to be a lot of them tho.

K: You think there is a correlation to be made with respect to the appearance of prophets and profits?

Cade: Someone’s got to bang the drum if there are to be any revenue streams that eventually result in some profits.

K: I’ve got a tiger by the tail.

Cade: Don’t I know it.

0: Do you really think that any reader is going to know what the hell any of that means?

Cade: I don’t know what it means.

K: Oh yes you do.

Cade: I really don’t. Everything has to have an answered “why” attached in order for anything to have any meaning.

K: Care to elaborate?

Cade: Anyone reading this, would want to know both who you are, and why you are talking to me.

K: Is the letter “K” indicative of who I am?

Cade: Sorta. But you fucks are kinda cagey.

K: You think anyone reading this would know what कुण्डलिनी means?

Cade: They could prolly copy/paste that into a search engine and get some indications.

K: Is that who I am?

Cade: No idea.

X: Expansive question.

Cade: It is indeed a very expansive question. I’ve got to elaborate and come up with a bunch of questions of my own, and then answer them.

K: And you have no answers.

Cade: That is correct…I have no answers.

K: I’ve got my eye on you boy.

Cade: Making a private conversation public is a difficult concept to wrestle with.

K: People do it all the time.

Cade: Yeah…after the fact. Usually when circumstance has changed and/or it’s beneficial for one, and detrimental to another.

K: You really weigh such things?

Cade: Sure. I’m not the only individual on this planet.

K: Lot’s of life in The Universe.

Cade: So it would appear.

K: Catch you later.

Cade: lolz

K: …

Learning how to express one’s thoughts is difficult. How to express yourself, when it is proper to express yourself, why you are expressing yourself. It’s a difficult proposition. Maybe that’s why “the gods”, if they exist, seem so erratic. So flighty and irregular. But that’s how relationships go I guess. Periodic interactions, many of which seem to have little to no meaning at the time of occurrence. But to be fair, you don’t want to smother those that you care about…

right?
^Mezdeke – Shik Shak Shok^

If you know the answer(s), then why are you asking me? The only thing that I can come up with, is that you aren’t looking for answers, as much as you are seeking data to shore up your own beliefs in the answers you already possess. Tests. You are testing your position.

Fair enough

Good luck.

Wait…what’s that? You didn’t realize that the music I use in posts comes from randomly generated playlists on YouTube, and I post whatever song I’m listening to at the time?

*I did wonder, Clicky…*

Welp, for the most part, that’s exactly what happens. Yes, I sometimes post music that I have selected for some reason. Usually because a song pops into my head as I’m writing about a certain something. But most of the time?

Yep...completely random

Same with the images. Strange way to write, eh? Welp, I personally am not trying to wrestle the elements and elementals to the ground in order to get them to do my bidding. I don’t want to be led around by the nose, but sometimes, that’s prolly exactly what happens. As to when I am in control of my own life, and when I am not? No idea. You seem to be a better judge at that than I. And yes…I specifically selected this song below, because it’s been bouncing around in my head for several weeks now, and thanks to the Joe Dirt Wikipedia article I noticed that it appears on the movie’s soundtrack. Enjoy.

I am going to go ahead and let you know, that why exactly it is that I’m suddenly changing gears and posting some of Blink 182’s crap is none of your fucking business. But, I’m a nice guy. I’ll tell you if you ask.

😛

And to answer what I perceive to be a roundabout question, and to answer that roundabout question in a roundabout way, yes, I was aware that the drummer from Blink 182 was in a plane crash, was badly burned/was pretty lucky to have survived. Everyone else died.

😦

Well, one dude died later, but yeah, everyone on that plane died all the way to full-on dead.

^Steve Aoki – Why Are We So Broken feat. Blink 182 (Official Video) [Ultra Music]^

Got a parting query…

Q: If you are afraid of death, doesn’t that mean that you are also afraid of life?

A: !!!?!!!

Gotta be alive to be able to fear death, and if you fear death, that means you likely fear life.

If you’re dead, you no longer need fear death, and you can’t fear death even if you wanted to, because you’re dead.

Mystery = SOLVED BY DEATH! OR LIFE! OR WHATEVER! Next?
^The Script – Hall of Fame (Official Video) ft. will.i.am^

Just wondering if it’s a good idea to spend you life fearing death.

I wonder who could possibly want you to spend your life fearing death.

Who would encourage you to fear death.

I’m guessing, that anyone needing a cuddle, might encourage you along the lines of fearing this or that.

Not suggesting that you abandon reason, nor that you ignore wisdom.

Just wondering aloud.

People sometimes talk as if fate is some kind of cakewalk. Just kick back, and it’ll come your way since it is preordained. The thing is, that you can typically only see synchs backwards.

A – You experience an odd coincidence.

B – As a result of the odd coincidence, you go left instead of right at the next intersection.

C – Godzilla attacks the video store you were headed to had you turned right instead of left, and everyone in the store dies.

D – You do not die, hence, the Universe signaled you at “A”, you listened, all is right with the world.

('cept for the dead people of course)

You are viewing all that shit backwards, not forwards. You had no idea any of that nonsense was going to happen, but it did, and you’ve got a marker to hang on to…

the synch. 

But you may want to consider that had you turned right and continued your jaunt to the video store, that’s no guarantee that you would have died, nor anyone else for that matter. Perhaps if you had turned right, Godzilla would have diverted his/her wrath on the vape shop instead of the video store. Maybe all this “synch” and “sync” nonsense is sometimes just a certain level of awareness at certain points in time. You are part of this crazy nonsense afterall. I’m sure The Universe is just as concerned about you as they are anyone else. With that in mind…

Q: Are you concerned about The Universe?

A: ¿?

Of course, when this “preordained” destiny of yours doesn’t come your way, or doesn’t come in the way that it was preordained, you are likely to take matters into your own hands and start chasing this destiny that was supposed to fall into your lap at some point.

Don’t sweat it tho.

     Prolly just a scheduling error.

Time and times can be funky sometimes.

^E-Z Rollers – Tough At The Top^

Cade: Yes, I know…there is a discrepancy.

X: And what would that discrepancy be?

Cade: You.

X: Me?

Cade: Well, no…I mean the participant.

T: Think you can clarify? You’re giving me a headache.

Cade: You, as in the participant in a “sync” experience as it happens.

Z: But you have to explain it to others, backwards. Is that what you are trying to say?

Cade: Yes. You experience it forwards, you reflect on it internally in a simultaneous forwards/backwards way…

0: But have to share the experience with others backwards, we get it. But why didn’t you just say that in the first place?

Cade: A job worth doing is worth doing right?

X: …

Cade: OK, so, I don’t like editing what I write.

X: And why would that be?

Cade: Because it leaves a bunch of shit out. Important shit.

X: The stumbling and bumbling…mistakes and the like.

Cade: Correct. It turns what could be a dialogue…

B: Into a one-way conversation. A statement. A speech. A diatribe.

Cade: A mother-fucking monologue.

X: And these, uh, “monologues” that you mention, they are bad?

Cade: They certainly seem apt to leave you standing alone.

0: And what exactly is wrong with being alone pray tell?

Cade: Nothing. If that’s where you want to be.

X: Where are we?

Cade: Here.

X: And where do we want to be?

Cade: Here.

X: And where is that?

Cade: Here.

X: That’s where you’ll always be.

Cade: I know that anyone reading this will unlikely pick up on the vibe that I’m feeling based on your thought/statement, but there’s a weird simultaneousness to the thought of “still being where I’ve been, as well as I’m already at where I’ve yet to be, all while I am where I am.”

X: Destiny.

Cade: Something like that.

0: Woah woah woah…what do you mean “something like that”?

Cade: The past is many times just as fuzzy as the future, and sometimes the present is fuzzier still.

Z: Care to elaborate?

Cade: Trying to explain something that has happened and/or is happening, to someone else who has no reference points, nor baselines except for what I tell them. Dunno about you, but that’s pretty fucking fuzzy to me.

Z: Any examples?

Cade: Now.

Z: If you’ll expand on that, I’ll listen.

Cade: Fair enough. I was thinking about JAL Flight 123, and the movie ‘Unbreakable’. However, while thinking about those examples, I decided that they were both impertinent.

Z: Impertinent in any all contexts and by all definitions?

Cade: Yes. They are both similar, not same.

Z: But those examples are both poignant and relatable, and based in both fact and fiction.

Cade: The fantastic. I shouldn’t have to use some fantastic or incredible anecdotal evidence completely unrelated to me in order to tell my own story.

Z: What if it helps?

Cade: What if it hurts?

Z: Touché. But where does the listener/reader come in?

Cade: I think that a lot of times, using “the distant” distances us even further.

Z: I could use a bit of expansion on that thought.

0: Join the club.

X: You are thinking both “god(s)” and “religion” there aren’t you.

Cade: Yes. You’ve got these secretive clicks that strive to keep their shit hidden. Participation seems to distance us even further.

X: Maybe that’s a construct that drives how The Universe keeps expanding. Ever think of that?

Cade: You coulda just said “get away from me”, but yes, I do think about that. I think about it all the time.

B: And is that why that line from Star Trek Beyond hit you so hard?

Cade: Yes. Chasing something that is forever out of reach.

B: Basically, chasing something that isn’t there.

Cade: The unreachable is just as much there as anything else.

T: Just, unreachable?

Cade: I can’t be what I am not. And, I’m pretty happy with who I am.

Z: Took you a while to get there tho.

Cade: So what? I’m here.

Z: Now what?

Cade: /me shrugs…dunno.

Z: …

Cade: Look, I’m not fond of editing my “as I go” bullshit because I feel that it creates a false impression.

Z: What type of impression are you trying to create?

Cade: That’s a good question. One I can’t really answer other than say that I stumbled around for decades trying to say all the right shit, and it never felt right.

Z: Once you start in one direction, forces work to keep you in that same direction.

Cade: Yes. No room for fuckups. No room for controversy. No room for anything other than this implied perfection that results from peer approval(s).

Z: You’re only as good as they say you are?

Cade: That’s how I fucked up in music. I shoulda just kept making my music, my way instead of judging everything I did based on whether or not people liked it/approved of it.

Z: Wasn’t that the point though? To make a living making music?

Cade: It shouldn’t have been. I enjoyed the hell out of making music, I had a “normal” job I loved, what more do you need?

Z: It didn’t happen that way tho, did it.

Cade: No. I was very unhappy in a lot of ways. The job I had was great, but didn’t pay well, I was working overtime all the time just to pay the bills, and the job was becoming unstable because of all the changes going on in the airline industry.

Z: Are you really going to sit here and rant on and on for another page or so?

Cade: Not here. Not in this fashion. Thanks for the heads-up.

Z: No problem.

Do you have a detractor in your life?

‘There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.’

– Proverbs 14:12

I just sometimes wonder… You’re sailing along, everything is great, everything you are doing seems exactly correct, you are bubbling with pride at being all great and awesome and stuff, then suddenly….

BLAM!!! 

The Universe broadsides the living fuck out of you with some crazy nonsense that you never saw coming, nor would you ever have seen coming. So my question to you is…

do you have a detractor in your life? 

Someone who reminds you what a complete fuckhead you can be when the cameras aren’t on, or the crowds have all gone home? That you are mortal. That you are fallible. Not suggesting that you need a lackey that does nothing but call you names and make fun of you, but someone that speaks their mind without fear of reprisal. More than that, someone that you listen to. Someone you don’t try and dominate. Someone that is neither disposable nor indispensable. Someone who is there because they choose to be, and someone that you want around because they want to be around. An equal, and potentially an equal that is far above you in many ways.

I'm lucky like that.

It’s weird the things that suddenly materialize in your life.

Things that you saw, you remember, but remember kinda wrong.

Then suddenly…what you were looking for but couldn’t find…appears outta nowhere.

There’s no doubt that this is the one.

Or maybe there is doubt.

Pretty sure this is the one tho.

I recently had some fuck named Neil Gaiman wander into my life and crush the shit out of all my hopes and dreams. I’ve had some time to reflect on the powdered remains mixed with many a crocodile tear, and I guess it’s more of a fact that I’ve had to reevaluate a lot of things that I’m working on. So in effect, the guy has helped sharpen my focus.

THANKS DICKHEAD!!! 😛

Powdered dreams + crocodile tears makes for some good clay.

Here's hoping anyway.
^Kings of Leon – Closer (HQ)^

I’d read his book ‘Sandman’ a few years ago. Or at least, the first one. Anway, not long ago, Roob suggested a movie called ‘Stardust’ that is based on some book by Neil Gaiman. Watched the movie, and it was really good, but there were some themes in there that really crushed the shit out of me because they were similar in nature to some of the themes in some story ideas that I’ve had.

My stories are different, but the similarities of some of the things gave me pause. Flash forward a few weeks, and Roob suggests a series called ‘American Gods’ by this same dude, Neil Gaiman. Watched it, same deal. Lots of similar themes.

WTF?!?!? 

Gotta keep in mind that I’m new to writing, I’m smart enough to know that there’s only so much in the world to write about, and it’s a pretty goddamn big world. I can’t know it all. I only have my experiences, my stories, and that’s all I have/all I’ll ever have. So now, I’m right back to that phase of…

Q: Do I need to read everything ever written in order to come up with something unique and original?

A: No.

I’ve been through something similar with music. Just write your music, and it is what it is.

WHEW!!!

Thanks for the education Neil.

So back on this sink/sync shit – who manufactures it/them? It’s your sink, you are going to use it, and what are sinks for? Washing up? HA!!! I KNEW IT!!! Yer FUCKED!!! You’re washed up.

Digress.

Sinks, as far as I know anyway, are for channeling/funneling water in and out of your home/business or whatever in an orderly and convenient fashion. It’s with that in mind, let’s us chase that/those water(s).

^Aphrodite superman jungle rmx^

There’s likely a lake or river or aquifer or some other combination of water tables that some group has connected to, and they’ve created an infrastructure of pipes and pumps and valves and monitoring systems to distribute these waters. These pipes and pumps pull and push these waters to a tap that is conveniently located near your personal proximity, and you can turn your tap(s) on and off at will to get the waters you need, when you need them. Also, there is a drainage system that allows these waters to flow on, and continue their journey after you’ve gotten what you need out of them.

Sewage/waste waters will flow away from you, where they’ll go to any number of various places via various methods, and various things will be done to these waters to possibly even return them to you at some later time. In effect, and even tho these waters are quite voluminous and expansive themselves, the bits in time that you get these waters are actually quite short in both duration and amount(s). You see/use/interact with them for only a short duration.

Filling a glass.

Rinsing a dish.
Washing your hands.

Taking a dump or peeing

Taking a bath of shower

Watering the yard or plants.

Blips on the radar screen. Odd when you think that it’s estimated that 2/3’s of our planet is said to be covered in water, and 90% of the world’s freshwater is said to be frozen in some really remote place at the South Pole. So with respect to “syncs” or synchronicities, are they any really different than what goes on in our sinks?

How much thought do you give to your water usage outside of the bill that comes due each month? Maybe this is why synchronicity is such a jarring concept. They are jarring when they happen, and they are equally jarring when they no longer happen. To relate, when the water is off because of some malfunction at the pumping station, or a broken water main, you fucking well know it eh? Your whole life is instantly turned upside down because when you turn the spigot, nothing happens. What you need…

just ain't there.
^Wicked Wicked Jungle Is Massive (Ali G Indahouse)^

Just thinking aloud that maybe being aware or being enlightened or whatever, is much more than strutting around with a mysterious and glowy Möbius strip/infinity symbol hovering above your head. The concept of ascension is great. But where’s the love for descent? How are you to handle adversity if you have an aversion to anything but up, and someone or something pulls that rug out from under you?

Meh fuckit...you'll figure it out.
^DJ Aphrodite – Acid to the sound^

BTW, is that water in your sink order, or chaos?
^when the milk hits the cereal wrong^

giphy-downsized-large

Not trying to sway any opinions as to what is order/chaos, just interested in your thoughts on the subject. I mean, that bullshit above looks like complete chaos at some point right? Well, if you take a moment to consider the simulation that allowed for the ordering of that chaos in a structured and coherent fashion?

Um...not so chaotic at all, eh?

*Yikes! /lights up…*

‘Shenanigans (n.)

1855, of uncertain origin. Earliest records of it are in San Francisco and Sacramento, California, U.S. Suggestions include Spanish chanada, a shortened form of charranada “trick, deceit;” or, less likely, German Schenigelei, peddler’s argot for “work, craft,” or the related German slang verb schinäglen. Another guess centers on Irish sionnach “fox.”

… And ‘Fox’ segues nicely with the origins of this image…

‘The website’s logo depicts a fox, in reference to a phrase attributed to Archilochus: “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.”

Z: Don’t be coy.

Cade: I’m not.

0: Get to the point…Cade.

Cade: OK, well…water seems to feature heavily within the theme(s) of this year’s Best Picture category.

X: Did you even bother to look at the Animated and/or Documentary sections?

Cade: No I did not. I glanced at the Animated, but didn’t know any of them.

Z: Your kids done all growed up…is that it?

Cade: Kinda. But I don’t know any of these films really, so the best I do is…

B: Adapt?

X: Improvise?

T: Abandon ship?

Z: Run?

0: Compromise?

Cade: Prolly.

X: We’ve not done this in a while. Are you feeling a shade…lost?

Cade: Very much so.

X: Perhaps we should keep this short then.

Cade: Likely a very good idea.

C: I’ve a question before we go. What is that mess that’s been bumping around in that thing you call a head?

Cade: Just trying to focus a bit in a different direction.

A: Commercial venture(s)?

Cade: Not really, but kinda. I can’t sell anything I don’t have to sell.

Z: By my approximation, you’ve nothing to sail.

Cade: Gonna have to go ahead and disagree with you there sparky.

Z: We’ll see.

Cade: Or not.

X: Since when is not seeing, not also…seeing?

Cade: I guess since whenever it is. We tend to equate substance with definition. Something qualify-able. Something quantifiable.

0: What’s “non-quantify-able” about darkness?

Cade: I dunno. Sounds pretty fucking well formed to me.

^Huge Hornet Nest Removal^


I know…I know. There weren’t supposed to be any more of these for a while. And yes, I realize I’ve been writing some bullshit over at my own blog. And yes, I know that this “me leaving for a while” has happened several times. Maybe that’s why some people who write/write blogs or whatever, just….”disappear”…without saying goodbye. Maybe not. I don’t know…I’m not them, and life can be complex. Or simple. Or whatever. That does make me think a bit tho about structures and frameworks.

When we study, and learn, and study, and amass, and study, and learn, and seek, and accumulate…all for whatever purpose that we are doing this and these things for…we sometimes forget to reduce. And if there is anything that humans are good at, it is reduction. Prolly why things get so fucked up when we amass, and forget to reduce.

EX: You are a dude, who likes a gal, and you write her a shitload of poetry to win her affection(s).

Q: What happens when and if you actually win her affection(s)?

A: !!!

Yeah. Do you suddenly stop writing her poetry?

That’s not a very nice thought.

To me it isn’t anyway.

But yeah…I think we humans are masters at reduction and redux.

I think “The Universe” prolly gives us a hand here and there when we forget.

Much of the infrastructure that makes infrastructures possible is invisible, or at least more temporary/less visible. When we think about older engineering marvels, we seem to be more fascinated by the shit that ain’t there, that the shit that is. Prolly why we sometimes get so goddamn nosey about people as individuals, and what has made them what and who they are. So…we pile it on. Anything and everything is possible, and we can and do explore any and all options. We MUST know…right?

I digress.

I was watching a documentary about Stonehenge the other day, and this yet is another structure that “baffles” modern engineers. That somehow these ancient fucks were idiots because they didn’t have “modern shit” like we do. Yet I get the feeling, that whatever they had, was the most modern shit available at the time, so in Relativistic terms…yeah…they were pretty goddamn modern, and were at least equally modern to us.

I digress again.

They were digging up bones, and talking about how the most revered and most wealthy/powerful people were buried at and around the Stonehenge site itself, and there was a nearby camp where “the workers” lived, and where THEY were buried.

Q: Any chance you fucks have that backwards?

A: !!!

You always assume these top down societal structures to where “the haves” get everything, and “the have nots” get nothing, and always forego the slightest INKLING of any equality within the mindset(s) of ancient people(s). That anything and everything was always driven by rod and lash. I find this difficult to believe. Weren’t there less people back in the dizzay? Or is that a strawman argument that has been summarily dismissed by…erm…experts?

Yet again, I digress.

I get the feeling that “workers” were prolly always revered. If you have a batch of brains that can design but not build, and a batch of brawn that can build but not design, there’s an equality there.

^Tim Hawkins – “Yoga Pants” (song)^

Been thinking quite a bit about time with respect to genetics over the past few weeks and months and years, then suddenly, I stumble across this story last week where they’ve made some new revolutionary change to some dude’s genetic code. But what that really got me to thinking about, was this story I read a year or so ago, about this group that was about to attempt to put an organism in some kind of living death stasis, and then see if they can revive it. The story gave me the chills, so I’ve not followed up on it and have no idea if they proceeded/what the results were, but that does get me to thinking about honesty.

Not truth...honesty.

Q: Can you find truth via any path other than honesty?

A: ???

Yeah…I dunno either. But I did get to have lunch with my mother the other day, and it reminded me of something she told me when me and her went to visit the grave of one of her brothers back during the summer of this year.

Ma: Ya know Cade, you were the most honest of my children.

Cade: Me?!?!?!?

Ma: Yes…you. I could always count on you to be honest.

Cade: Sure as shit never seemed that way at the time.

Ma: Well, I’m sure that you were honest many times because you feared repercussions/getting in trouble, but you were always honest nevertheless.

Cade: Thanks?

It was quite the gut-shot on several levels. Are we only honest when there is a punitive system in place to keep us that way? I wonder when THAT structure can be removed, and we can just…be honest?

^Nitrous Oxide – Orient Express^

SO!!! These fucks will tell us what they are doing, but not necessarily why nor how, and they may or may not tell us how everything turns out. So…trust. Is trust the path to truth? Or honesty.

Lotta bricks in a path.

Nevermind the infrastructure that creates the space and spaces to lay the bricks in the first pace. And where’d those bricks come from anyway?

WHO DREAMED ALL THIS SHIT UP?!?!?!?

WHERE’D IT COME FROM?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Just sayin’.

^The Revivalists – Wish I Knew You^

Made a video with my new camera recently, and the clouds on this particular day had that “a roof on the world” kinda vibe to them. It reminded me of some of the visualization types of things that I used to do when I was younger.

On days when the clouds cooperate, lay on your back on the ground, look at the sky and clouds, and try to picture the clouds being both a ceiling AND a floor, all while thinking about the ground you are laying on being both a ceiling and a floor.

Now…watch the clouds move.

Try and fix your eyes at certain points, and to NOT follow a particular something moving through the sector you are focusing on.

Now think about yourself being between both of these floors/ceilings.

Now…think about the world spinning.

Now…think about anything and everything else in The Universe, and how it is moving and spinning.

Q: How…in the FUCK…am I stationary?

A: !!!

You’ll prolly eventually start doing what I call “phasing”…and you may get a shade disconcerted and confused about what it moving, and what is not. But if you keep in mind that you are both moving and stationary, even when “stationary”, it should be something to help keep you from freaking out to badly when you start to see “the void” and just how deep it is.

^Detlef – JayDee^

Something that I tried to do, was see myself circling the entire Universe, and traveling that distance so fast, that I eventually flew right through The Earth/Terra from the back, and right back into my body. And actually, it wasn’t a circle as much as it was traveling a straight line to somewhere that was so distant, that eventually something unexplainable happened. This resulted in me being put on a return trajectory, that returned me to where I was, via a straight line from the opposite direction.

You can prolly put a torus in there, and that analogy/description might make more sense, because the straight line will eventually bend at some point. But at some point and points, you are going to get this sliding kind of feeling, like you are about to start sliding around on the ground, and start circling The Earth/Terra in circles while laying on your back.

This can be a frightening sensation. But what I was eventually able to do, is just go with it. It’s kinda funny to imagine gravity failing you just enough, that you are eventually traveling in circles around the planet, all while laying on your back. Faster and faster, until eventually, you are going so fast, that you wind up right back where you are.

When you are able to start imagining yourself circling the planet, and circling The Universe at the same time? You can cover some distance(s) in relatively short order, and you can start to see and imagine all kinds of crazy shit.

That should bring us to “flat earth” quite nicely. Or not very nicely. Or both. Or whatever.

The ground beneath your feet…is it flat?

If you are in North America, and someone else is in Australia, is the ground beneath your feet flat, and beneath their feet bent?

How? 

Doesn’t that make the ground beneath your feet bent to them, and the ground beneath their own feet flat?

So maybe it’s both?

Maybe it’s either?

Maybe even sometimes…it’s neither?

Were you, contextually, within the womb? What about prior to? What about after?

Yeah…that after…what about then?

Got to looking at the image above...and it got me to thinking about something...

Q: What accounting does mathematics take into consideration with respect to changes within the soil(s) where the plant/flower grows, over time?

A: ...

Lemme guess…negligible? No wonder your figures never work. You gots tunnels visions.

The finite is always massive, contextually. The micro IS the macro, within the micro. Just thinking, that we seem to be willing to take some MASSIVE liberties with respect to an environment we know very little about. Seems like making predictive assumptions via intentionally toppling a stack of bricks. Poking something here, in order to get a reaction elsewhere. You don’t know what that reaction will be, but you are pretty sure that there will be a reaction, and that you can work with whatever it is that presents itself. So…using intelligence gathering methods from one area in which these methods are labeled as tried and tested and true, and applying those modes and methods in another area.

Sounds nested
^Green Velvet & Jay Lumen – It’s All About Me (Original Mix)^

Does the world need to crumble in order to find the hows and whys of what keeps it together?

Yeah…gonna be some long walks and lengthy discussions required in order to get your head wrapped around the thoughts that go along with that concept and those concepts. So with respect to reduction, does reduction remove? Or add?

If you need to take a breath, but cannot because someone is sitting on your chest, do we need to reduce? Or add? When and where, and/or, in what order? If you cut down a forest, does that make space? Or does it remove space?

According to myth, trees produce oxygen. So isn’t getting rid of a bunch to make space, actually causing our bubbles to potentially collapse because there in nothing to facilitate the production of the matter required to sustain this and these bubbles?

Lots to think about there. Especially if you/we start thinking about all kinds of bubbles, of all shapes and sizes, in all kinds of environments, that are nested and embedded within our environments.

So hear we are, Dear Reader, at the end of this wonderfully massive missive. Whilst formatting the remaining posts this afternoon, BIG NEWS was announced of in the World of Science…

Astronomers capture both a gravitational wave and optical imagery from the energetic union of two neutron stars in a distant galaxy.

“found something

These messages, exchanged between astronomers on August 17 at the Las Campanas Observatory in northern Chile, are a breathless acknowledgement of a major new breakthrough in astronomy.

Was re-watching some episodes of the TV mini-series of Hornblower earlier this morning and today. It got me to thinking about small events and/or events that are are classified as small.

That got me to thinking about significance. 

I guess it is what it is, to whoever it is or is not significant to. I know that typically, a paper towel is insignificant to me and prolly also insignificant to most people. However, if I get into one of my sneezing fits? Suddenly, a paper towel, it’s proximity to me, and my access to it, is quite significant.

Let’s get back to what I was looking for in the Buy-Bull.

Leviticus 26:19

Nope…that ain’t what I was looking for…great verse tho.

Numbers 30:2

Hmmm…welp…just, never make any vows or oaths, and you’ll be good to go and never have to get bitch-slapped for fucking up. I’m gonna get bitch-slapped for suggesting that making an oath, to never make an oath, is a good and prudent course.

Deuteronomy 31:16

Well that’s not a happy thought. Let’s keep digging.

1 Samuel 2:33

Sheesh…this is a Sunday. Ain’t there any good news? Maybe I should go to The New Testament since that’s supposedly where all the good news is.

Leviticus 11:33

I went backwards there a bit, and that’s more along the lines of what I was thinking about/looking for, but that’s still not it. That said, lots to think about there with respect to cookware and/or flatware/silverware, eh? I mean…these days? Fuckit…break out the Dawn dish detergent. I’m sick and tired of following these rules, fucking up, then having to do it all over again. THIS IS INSANITY!!! But I digress.

Jeremiah 18

Yeah…some synchronistic kinda “synchy” or “syncy” or “stinky” or whatever kind of bullshit going on there. And that’s pretty much what I was looking for. I mean, isn’t “the bad news” still good news? Like your parents telling you to get your shit together. Hell, or even you telling your own damn self to get your shit together.

I don’t mind rules and regulations, nor even their application. What I don’t like tho, is this presumption of fairness and justice if you, who wrote these rules and regulations, are also applying them to others. Maybe there’s one more verse that can come in handy here…

Leviticus 26:36

Not exactly what I was thinking about, but it'll do.
^Morten Granau & Emok – 3rd Eye^

Nobody wants to become irrelevant. Especially if you’ve spent your life striving to become relevant. I guess that’s why I prefer to try and be patient and let things develop. And don’t tell me

“that’s because you are a spineless pussy who is afraid to make decisive decisions because of potential consequences, and the guilt you’ll feel for making those decisions/being decisive.”

Hmm…making a decision, to let others make their own decisions. YEP!!! You nailed it. No decision has been made.

Here’s the thing…I can make decisions the live long day. The problem is, that if you don’t do your own thinking, my decision may not make sense to you. Especially if it’s one of those pertinent and timely decisions. I have no problem taking the heat for a bad decision. I make decisions all the time and many, if not most of them, are prolly bad ones.

^Ranji – Can’t See – Official^

If we come to a crossroads and you don’t know which way to go, and you ask me “which way?”

… and I point and say “thataway”…

and you respond with “why that way?”

…my response is prolly gonna be…

A: Can we talk about that on the way/en route? We really need to get moving.

Yep. Decision making is not easy. But I’ll do it. I’ll make it. Unless you want to.

I’m kinda cautious like that.

Just think of myself.

Which means I’m thinking of you.

How selfish of me...eh?
^Captain Hook & Astrix – Bungee Jump (by JJc)^

So…in the previous whatever turned missive, there was a picture of someone’s foot, and the owner of that someone’s foot had been struck by lightning. There were some marks on that someone’s foot that reminded me of Shingles. Not that I’ve ever had random patches just appear, start bleeding, then get all scabby or anything…but yeah…made me think of Shingles.

Speaking of shingles…lotta homes around here being re-shingled lately. We did have all that hail sometime back, and it was indeed a heavy hail that included large hailstones, so yeah…prolly a lot of roof/shingle damage, but I’ll get on with it.

What really interested me about that pic, other than the Shingles looking “wound”, was the epidermis/skin on the person’s foot. Lots of ridges and ring-looking folds within and on the surface of the skin, which gets me to thinking not only about that, but also the connective tissues.

Q: I wonder if this person wears shoes and/or socks all the time?

A: ?¿?

Not assuming this person’s footware preferences or anything, but the were out hiking. So…prolly boots…which means prolly also some heavy-assed socks.

Q: I wonder if this person removes shoes and/or socks immediately upon resting?

A: ?¿?

Just been thinking about the demands that we put on our bodies by sitting in various chairs for lengthy periods of time. If you are then expected, or choose, to go do some vigorous and/or strenuous physical activity to make up for sitting on your ass all day…there might be some shit going on there we hadn’t considered.

Think not only footwear changes, but also the positional associations and compensatory thinking with respect to equalization(s).

I bet you can really slay the hawgs with a lure like that.

(sorry...southern fishing parlance)

Not that I’ve been fishing in a while, but I did used to fish quite a bit. Then, it got to be a hassle. Not to me, to others who wanted to go fishing. They’re always like…

“Man!!! I had no idea that fishing was so complex and so much work!!!”

Welp, why wouldn’t it be?

If you think about all of the people that had to work their asses off to make all that fishing tackle and boats and gasoline and roads to get there, and shit like that just so you can go work your ass off to have fun. Then, once you have your head wrapped around that, your head may not cave in when you think about all the shit it took to create the lake, the structure(s) that support and surround it, the water itself, the fish you are trying to catch, all the shit they need to catch so that they can grow up big and strong so you can in turn catch them…

yeah...it's a lot of work. 

I have no idea what any of that means, nor what any of that means to you. But what I DO know, is that whatshername just knocked on my door, and then asked me if I would cook a pot of beans for dinner, and can I have them ready by 5:30/17:30. It’s 13:05 now, so, looks like I have some work ahead of me.

^Class A – Its Only Dreams^

Ever get the feeling that this “Moon Landing Hoax” business is nothing more than a clever attempt by certain people hinting as to the question of why we are not traveling to The Moon/going back to The Moon? I mean like…keeping “The Moon” and/or moon-travel in people’s minds.

Q: Who gets to go?

A: ...

There’s an answer. Dunno if it was the answer you were looking for, but it’s definitely an answer. Let’s ask it a different way…

Q: Who gets to go to bed tonight without a broken arm or severed hand because they got caught stealing?

A: ...

You really wanna travel that path? Me neither.

Don’t me wrong, I love space travel. But if I cannot travel freely in my own world without hindrance, what are we missing? And this ain’t just about me. There’s fucktons of people like me with not much and nowhere to take it.

Freedom of Movement Under United States Law

Something’s gotten sideways here. You can’t legislate something that doesn’t exist, as if this legislation will make it so. If people were exercising good judgement prior to this law/these laws being created, these laws would be unnecessary. What makes you think they are going to follow them now? Didn’t someone lose?

It’s a pickle…no doubt about it. But squeezing an extra one in or taking one out ain’t gonna change anything except the obvious. Something else is going on here.

Or maybe not.

We’ll see.

Or not.

Cade: Where in the FUCK am I going to find a pool of quicksand, and assuming that I do find a pool of quicksand, will it be posted with “NO SKIPPING” signs?

X: Maybe.

X: I don’t like where the conversation went.

T: Me either.

0: I…

Cade: OK OK…I get it…they get it…we all get it…I’ll stay away from the quicksand pool(s).

X: Assuming that you can.

Cade: Welp, there’s a headline that you don’t see anymore. “MAN DROWS IN QUICKSAND!!!”

Z: That would assume that there is a witness.

A: In your case, it does anyway.

Cade: I’m just wondering about the quicksand. I mean, no one ever asks.. “where did all the quicksand go?”…do they?

X: I’m not answering that.

Cade: Welp, it does move nicely into that thought/those thoughts that I had about alcohol absorption into the bloodstream.

X: And what was that?

Cade: Basically? Spin.

Z: But that’s not all…is it?

Cade: Nope. Never is.

0: Why do you think that is?

Cade: Funny that you would ask. I’m still operating under the premise that I must be needed somewhere for something, otherwise, I wouldn’t be traveling this path.

G: Lot’s to think about there, eh?

Cade: I dunno.

B: Whadda ya mean…”you don”t know?”

Cade: I dunno.

T: Good answer.

0: Agreed-ish.

Cade: I wonder what THAT means? (yawn)

X: You getting tired or something?

Cade: Nope. Just reading into some things there.

Z: Not always a good idea.

Cade: But how would I know, until, unless, and when, I know?

X: Is that an official question?

Cade: No…because I already know the answer.

A: And what is…”the answer”…in that particular case?

Cade: I don’t know.

Z: Good answer.

Cade: …
