” I was profoundly disappointed, for now. . . . The painful process of defoliation had been in vain. . . . Disappointed, I thought, “Now I must return to the ‘box system’ again.” For it seemed to me as if behind the horizon of the cosmos a three-dimensional world had been artificially built up, in which each person sat by himself in a little box. And now I should have to convince myself all over again that this was important! Life and the whole world struck me as a prison, and it bothered me beyond measure that I should again be finding that quite in order. I had been so glad to shed it all, and now it had come about that I – along with everyone else – would again be hung up in a box by a thread. . . .Carl […]

Ok…..don’t break my arm…..I’ll tell you everything you need to know, just don’t break my arm… THEY……say……..BIG BANG…..BIG Bounce…….universe is expanding, accelerating……It is this…..It is that……String theory, Quantum theory…..this theory….that theory…..my theory……my god-idol’s theory……my, my, my prediction of future expectation. My fair weathered friends…..a little root Gnosis on SCIENCE……Science is ONLY a tool……and guess what SCIENCE is really ONLY ABOUT?….. Science does only ONE THING…….Science tests an hypothesis…..IT makes a prediction about the possibility of a future event. Science never declares, although it may define and resolve……yet all-in-all……Science and even our rational faculties can only help the enterprise make rational, likely predictions about anticipated future events……What is most likely to happen…… Within a Material plain – there is what I call, Construct……i.e. material……one can imagine Construct as a set of Legos or tinker toys……place the pieces in a familiar, arrangement and you have yourself […]

I do this for my up town politicians, those that walked into the kitchen and found a pot to piss in… For as long as I can, I will cover a host of words and concepts that hold incredible power, yet avade ordinary convention. For starters…….the basics….. The word, “term” or “terms”….pretty common, everyday concept…e.g. what are the terms of the deal… On walk about, through the forest, we cross paths with a stick, a fallen sycamore branch….we pick up the stick. We see, we experience the stick, all at once….no part of the stick is seen above or beyond the whole. We simply see the stick…. Yet there’s much more going on and to be had, than meets the eye….the stick has terms…all matter has terms that distinguish its order from another extension’s order. (Extension is another word we will get into). The […]

“Yet I marvel at how this great wealth has come to dwell in this poverty.”   Our opportunity to REALIZE can vanish in a split second…..like a horse or comet galloping at nearly the speed of light….We can miss the train entirely, if we aren’t mindful at the station of LIFE……..   I’ve had the incredible privilege of experiencing Alaska’s wild frontier and its many lessons. Yet, one lesson, one experience stands out above the rest……..it has nothing to do with bears or hunting or fishing……or testing oneself against the grain of Mother Nature…….this lesson has nothing whatsoever to do with me…..and everything to do with…….US……..You and I.   One Summer, during our log cabin days, roughly 10 years ago – my wife and I had our driveway paved with asphalt. Not having much of a clue, I fell prey to a seasonal “scam” […]

Sorta funny…..pretty sure it goes a little something like this….. We start off close….all ten of us…….so close….packed in, warm tight…..we don’t really know we are ten……yet we know we shine ten different arrays……yet different is not different to us yet….despite ten faces, mirroring ten different arrays…..a feeling of wholeness…..togetherness is experienced….a band of-togetherness….a band of-a-brilliant bliss……..and this is all we know……. Well…..after a spell……a restlessness builds…….the elemental spectra grow tired of the monotonous shine, the other spectra routinely display…..the constant, eternal chatter and “togetherness” of being now seems like an activity worse than death itself….after all, if this is all there is to it….why bother….why shine….let’s just all go to sleep and call it a day….if this is all there is to it……sorta like listening to golf on the radio every day for eternity…….after some long-winded inquiry…..and confusion………..things begin to “fall apart”….. Inevitably, […]

Yes, me friend…..me good friends Dem set me free again, Yes, me friend….. We in the street again.. Bars could not hold me….. Force could not control me now…. Through the powers of the Most High…. They had to turn me loose…. So if you a Bull-Bucka…..let me tell you this….. I’m a duppy conqueror……Conqueror……… Yes me friends, me good friends……them set me free again… Life and Interaction are fascinating….the Game of Life is fascinating. Counter-intuitive as all hell……an eternal game of hide-and-seek…….there you are….now where did you go? Let’s see if I can take something “out-there” and make it simply…..”in-here”…….tangible and practical for the viewing audience…… Duppy Conqueror…….what on Earth is that? A “duppy” is considered an evil spirit…..in the Western mind, a demon……an entity that stirs up trouble…… In the Western…externally-oriented mind…..the “out-there” mindset…..a blame-shifting, victimized-mind…….demons and demonic possession are interwoven into […]

Wow…..How to address such a tricky notion? Liberty…..Freedom….the Meaning of Life…..you ready to tackle such ideas? We shall see… Liberty….Freedom…..Privacy…Constitution……are just trinket-words that get dished up and tossed around, usually to satisfy some self-serving, instant gratification…..what’s in it for me? My Liberty…. It’s been my experience that when folks throw out such cliche, trinket-words – they do so in order to advance a basic, material, self-serving…….oppressive “strong-hold”….of some kind.  We can see this in a conventional, Southern Baptist household and all over the globe within poor socio-economic countries, regimes, etc.   Despite the selective judgments and good-guy badges, all human beings cultivate this “dominion….strong-hold” over other human beings……male or female…..male or male….female or female….personal or business…….master…..slave. It’s called the 1-up game. Your turn.  Boring. Liberty IS worth talking about, however…….IT…..IS worth talking about.  What is IT? and What is LIBERTY? Before we get to […]

If it’s not spontaneous and without regard for return…….It’s not ART…..only Animation…… Raw, as it, before the furnace of discretion….(UPDATE, replay post 15 minutes after posting via FB, yet not a jot nor a tittle has been changed) In plain sight….. We sense this world in real-time…..if you are reading this now, take a look around the room – you are in real time….even if you read these words asynchronously……network lag……you are still observing your world in real-time…..at the speed of light. Everything you witness, sense….see is traveling at the speed of light…..as fast as your imagination can handle…..as fast as your thought stream…as fast as you can tell your knee to jerk……faster….still. It should stand to reason that if this is the case then…..our social interfacing in real-time makes it nearly impossible for people to be self-aware and self-evident in a social interfacing situation…..whether […]

A Walk with Words…. The most difficult thing to ever remember is the thing most obvious to you already. The more obvious, the more likely you are to forget…..deer in the headlights? With me? For example, your heart, pretty obvious organ, ehh? Do you remember it beating? When’s the last time you remember your heart beat? How about your last breath? Recall your first breath this morning? or 2 days ago? One foot after the other – and there before you know it. The most difficult thing to remember is the thing most obvious….and most precious to Life. People….good people all wanting the same things…..behave so poorly toward one another, day in, day out…..family people, friend people, co-worker people……..in moods……in pissing contests… Married people get divorce because “they cannot work things out”……and we nod…..being polite…….never bothering to dig deeper, “cannot work things out?”…..what does […]

Shall we play a game? Life is so incredibly interesting. For the longest time I wanted to throw out to the crowd a drama that I have been imagining over and over again – its ridiculously intriguing to come to find out that someone has already beaten me to the punch.  For me, the drama either took place in a dream state or a state of virtual reality – either way the thought experiment works wonderfully. I’ve been unfortunately-fortunate to experience first-hand this sort of psycho-drama – the theme, its grand lesson and its fundamental elements.  My journey has provided me first-hand experience with the inevitable hells, demons and discoveries revealed only to man when he’s fallen impeccably from grace…..to a non-local, rock-bottom point of supreme isolation and despair.  If you, the reader get that far below, you can reference this metaphor against Mr. […]
