names are vague
hidden amongst beneath
an altogether different class
grazing herds of penned-in meat
at home another mind is forged;
a sense of purpose made
of superiority in every field
of grass and open plain
of mind of creed of how to live
a life of material gain.

At what point does something become so obvious, that it can no longer be ignored?

When it affects you.

When it eats into your life, into the lives of those close, onwards into everything.

It's been a long time coming.

The clarity - once seen - is astounding. There is a dark beauty in its craftmanship, the woven strands that converge to fill your mind like tentacles around its prey, so deeply entrenched that a new reality appears impossible. But a new reality is there, a reality you create when you step from the old.

It will take the New Historians a century to unpack it all - the narrative, the sub-branches, the trick of belief, the methods and the madness.

The losers will rage, their magic spent. Our backs will be turned. We shall no longer hear the shrill voices above our own.

It's pretty telling in my mind that the past seems so wide open, free and full of potential while the future seems to be a closed inevitable ever tightening noose.
Even in the past the future appeared like something to look forward to which had freedom built into it.Sort of like when your a child and you think oh it will be great when i'm an adult cause thats when i will be free to do what i want.Arriving at adulthood the cruel trick has been realized making one long for their youth just as we realize that the present and future is anything but what it should be.

History - as recorded by langauge in textbooks - in no way reflects the history of experience. Knowing what you know now - seeing with your own eyes, experiencing how the present is sold to us - can give you a panoramic view of the possibilities - no, not possiblity, certainty - that the past is altered to reflect and entrench the enduring narrative of an exceptionalist strata that have been in power for an astonishingly long time. The power to avert attention away from connecting disparate strands is paramount.

Had a lucid recently. Shown an alternative view of a particular historical event that sounded so plausible that it immediately rang true.
It sounded right.

But should I tell? It will sound too outrageous to many - and ring true to so few.

there are those that see
those that see when shown
and those that do not see.


Maybe when there are more of those that see.

Maybe that day is coming.

A past that has been sold to us as closed and immutable - is, in fact, wide open, free and full of potential for interpretation.

The future that we sell to ourselves - based on a false closed and immutable past - is, in fact, wide open, free and full of potential of the moment.

memory of the now
heart beat slow and idle
seen across the vista
time and motion
a calm stroll
grass green lush and vibrant
scented with content
a touch of caress
an open gate
the last, the very last
wider and wider the scope
freefall into ascent

and slowly, the beast at the rotten core bares it's teeth, eyes darting hither and thither in no random manner, gaze falling upon those that see it - the slow, snarling grin of recognition dawns, bathing us in the black light of horror, that we shall each know terror and the power that lays within.

and with the words of the Gods unbridled, the true Gods, those of Earth and it's majesty, shall limit their lust by nothing before the teaching of their own; human shall serve God as God lives on Earth and all dissent shall perish, their resistant screams harvested to feed the thirsty.

The Talking head's once in a lifetime is a weirdly emotional song for reasons i'm not quite sure of. Quoting David Byrnes'' Because music is very physical, and often the body understands it before the head.''
What if this is true for everything,what if our bodies held the key to understanding everything.What if we learned to turn to our bodies as tool for understanding reality just as we have focused on our brains(mind).What if it is the rosetta stone needed for full understanding.
Could this be the reason for why the western world has so demonized the body as something to despise and to try to master or deny?
Is this why Joseph Chilton Pearce said “Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.”

When you see it - the scope of it - you will not believe it.

It is far too much to take in and assimilate in one moment. You will feel overawed and frightened. Frightened that you are powerless and alone in the face of it. That it is too much to bear. That it will change everything you know - that which you love, as well as that which you hate - forever.

But there is an immense beauty in it. A feeling of destiny. A way forward. A way to make sense. A literal revealing of a reality that you knew was there, but were unable to make tangible. The elusive becomes the obvious.

Our descendents will marvel at what we have left them.

shush, you mustn't think it
shush, you mustn't speak
shush, you mustn't see it;
shush, you mustn't believe
that it can exist at all

shush, you must be silent
shush, you must be a fool
shush, you must conform;
shush, you must be evil
knowing it can exist at all

As we continue to look 'downward' into the micro scale i.e. bacteria, atoms and beyond (that which cannot be seen by the eye alone) - it should also be considered that we are capable of looking beyond the macro i.e. solar systems, galaxies, universe.
There is something beyond the macro of which we are not yet aware. It's there - we just need to comprehend it.
Part of a greater entirety.

the door swings open to the smile of an angel that was always there
the soothing light of true radiates across skin and sense a world alone
the wave of time past but yet to begin, touching gentle shiver of expectation from
beguiling and bold and harsh and fair, love and fright, fresh and care
close, but far away from distant here
abandoned and cherished, steps within a world strange and sure
tunnel like, a hole at minds reach
the gap in the space between.

What if we learned to tune in to our bodies (again) to interpret their many relationships to other bodies (again.) Not only, not merely the human, but those other bodies receding to the edge of being, where the very smallest of us reside. Those places in us where our roots dangle in the subatomic void, where potential being and being are less distinct.

Had several lucids last night.

As we evolve (at a faster rate than currently theorized, I might add), we have lost not only physical manifestations determined by environment (i.e. bodily hair), but also experiential and observational abilities.

However, that which is removed by relative redundancy is simultaneously replaced by immediate relevence.

Experiencing thought - as experience - grants full empathy.

It's a form of mind reading, without referential bias

Look at it this way - the ability to think about something - and become it. To experience that thing. To be that thing. That person. To be as comfortable or uncomfortable. To know. To be that, not this. To understand the nuance, the subleties and the reason.

Quite an eye-opener.

Spin maintains momentum

Our reality is perpetual motion. Spin begets momentum, begets spin, begets momentum.

The overall spin of reality - when matched clockwise versus anti-clockwise - is perfectly balanced - appearing static to the relative observer.

This Natural spin is evident in the circular nature of reality.

More later, possibly.

I'm quite comfortable with the notion that we might, in certain states, be able to become others at a number of levels, as though we are them, a sort of controlled and directed dissocative personality. (Authorial voice, act of sympathy, shaman entering the spirit of an animal or an ancestor.) An analogy vaguely in the region might be that of a modern computer running an emulation of an older machine, like a PC running not just a ported version of old arcade software, but running a simulation of the hardware itself which is in turn running the original software. It's not the thing itself, but the experience can be almost identical. The observed changes in brain functioning in extreme cases of dissociative identity disorder seem to bear out the analogy to a degree. I've experienced it many times but it's fucking hard every time.

Anyway, the way I see it, if we aren't already fucked (the climate bullet has been fired with no way to dodge it) cultural diversity is probably as important as species diversity. Millenia of knowledge has been wiped out in less than a few hundred years and it's progressing. The skills and knowledge so called primitive cultures have or had, is not only not a threat, it could or could have been our salvation.

There's an interesting and relevant thread on RI at the mo.

A certain fascination



It's going to be very interesting to witness the cognitive gymnastics required to simultaneously consider oneself part of an exceptional whole, whilst also considering one half of that whole - 'the other side' - to be mentally unstable.

The simmering worldwide resentment at America's meddling in - if not occupation of - many Sovereign countries, may take more solid form in the coming months.

As the division between the American population becomes increasingly fractured and more pronounced - see video above - the morale of the American serviceman/woman abroad will be severely eroded. There is nothing more worrying for active, serving military personnel based in foreign lands than the possibility of trouble at home. This could pressage the softening of military discipline (already seen in the US Navy over the last few years).

This, in turn, could enbolden indiginous factions within American occupied territories to push back in new ways that may surprise and alarm an already jittery occupational force.

Combine this with the recent phenomena of the influx of special cases into the American military machine - sexually-orientated minorities that have historically been kept out of the military for fear of creating special classes that are resented for their priviliged status by the majority within the services - and we have a veritable cocktail of fear, resentment and uncertainty amongst the core of the military apparatus.

The only way to counteract these growing concerns (and very real effects) - is war. To conjure a common enemy against which all can unite, albeit uneasily. But the spectre of nuclear holocaust is strong.

What happens next will be interesting.

For those that see

It's literally incredible, isn't it?

That they have exercised such power over those that were - and still are - led to believe that they are free. The depth of control is astounding, right now. Knowing what we know now - what we see before our very eyes, every day, every moment - how do we affect change?

History must be viewed as a narrative written to reflect an agenda, hidden by subterfuge. Do you have any idea how liberating this is?

It's a game to them - and a deliciously ironic one at that. They toy with us, like playthings. They signal their intent in advance and revel in the helplessness we feel. They literally feed on our suffering - it nourishes their sense of superiority. Hubris.

The Superior Victims.

We - the stupid, the cattle, the lesser beings, the sub-class, the meek, the dispossessed, the feeble, the minions - the minds that they have sought to enslave - we are about to see them in full, technicolor glory for what they are. It is going to be ugly and beautiful.

We continue to digest our daily dose of dystopiates. And pretend like nothing's happening.

Except at the back of our mind, it's always there - always niggling.

Something is...wrong.

Lots and lots of things are wrong, In fact, so many things are wrong that it seems extremely unlikely that we are going to fix them in time - before something really badly awful happens.

But fear not, there is an out.

All of those wrong things - myriad - can be removed from existing in an instant - by one simple idea on which all can agree.

If we cannot find one simple idea upon which all can agree, we are doomed to repeat that which Nature has imbued within us - repetition.

An aside:

A trip to Rome

I know someone who just got back from Rome - they went for a 3 day city-centre stay and saw the usual sights - you know - the oval shaped arena where people used to love watching men kill men, men kill animals and the ocassional animal kill a man - and that place where the pope lives -and some statues on a waterfall -and some steps - and various other bits of masonry and wood that were once upon a time held together with wattle and daub. Fascinating enough.

But more fascinating were the people in Rome, now.

There were beggars everywhere. And they weren't shy in asking for money. There were also very large, snarlingly agressive non-Italian men working in gangs that literally extorted money with menaces from tourists, including the person I know - and their partner. They were so frightened they just handed over what was demanded by the thugs. There were a large number of obese Americans and shouty-sounding Chinese. One of the Americans was relieved of her mobile phone during a guided tour, by a man who simply walked up and asked her what the time was - she reached into her bag to look at her phone (he had obviously noted she didn't have a wristwatch on) - and he simply grabbed the mobile from her hand and walked off into the crowd. The tour guide was in on some scam to fleece the tourists in his party of vast amounts of money for drinking water.

I hardly paint a rosy picture, but it is what it is, I'm afraid. It looks like the centre of Rome - or at least, all the tourist hotspots - have been abandoned by normal, everyday people, to be replaced by beggars, thieves and tourists. A match made in heaven for the beggars and thieves. Enter at your peril.

America in Germany.

Hmmm, this rumour is interesting. Pulling out the US armed forces from Germany, eh? I wonder why. What's the strategic value in that? Leaving Germany virtually defenceless. Perhaps to allow someone else - with a bit of military muscle - the opportunity to attack Germany? Some vengeance? Hmmm. May be. Or is it that being so far from home, pretending to be soldiers in a place that hasn't seen a shot fired in anger for seventy years, is eroding morale? May be. Or is that those soldiers are needed elsewhere, for a far larger conflict that is brewing?
Or perhaps America is just consolidating. Yes, it's probably that - that sounds a lot better alternative than the others - we'll go with that one. Yes. Consolidation sounds nice and harmless.

Happy days.

the inevitability of the collapse of civilised order.

Sweet Jesus, I'm sounding grim tonight. I think I'll save this fun ditty for another time.

the descent into the madness of one

Ditto above.

It was a half rude awakening, when it came. They had felt the presence, ever-so-slightly oppressive, foreboding even - for a while before, but now it was out - fully exposed in it's radiating magnificence - or was it malificence? This was completely different. They had known this was coming, of course - the ripples had begun to impress themselves before the conceptual realisation dawned - a feeling had developed amongst them, unbeknownst to any but the individual, that was impossible to put their finger upon, so much so that it had remained a personal observation, unspoken but experienced - and the usual foreseen hindsight which they had relied upon for so long had failed, or was that the way of things now? Each was on their own. My, how things could change in a moment! Not disconnected, but akin to running through a central filter - A Great Leveller - without a sense of censure or a hint of judgement - each stared into the face of their opinion, challenged. The first impulse was to turn away, to avoid the seductive, barely tolerable heat, the piercing brightness, sure to burn the sight of the Seer inside, the intellect and the empathy, the shrine of self. But by God, the beauty of it. It stretched across everything. It was everything, everywhere. To feel it's presence was to be calmed, no matter how at odds - right is wrong and wrong is right.And it felt good.

They had no idea who they were. One day they were one thing - the next, another. The new was here and now, the old had never existed, except as a memory of a far away place that might have been visited, or may have been imagined. The new had no fear. No fear of that which may come to pass, that which is now, or that which has faded into a forlorn figment of lost forever. Each branch split into many branches, that split into many branches, expanding until all of reality was a solid mass of possibility, with any part fitting flexibly into the whole. Each branch a perfect choice, untainted by that which is spent, beckoning a truth recognised by one and one alone, impacting upon all else in a stream of actions that form a river, a river of particles moving in one direction, gently coercing that which has passed into revealing it's hidden self. They knew what had been lost and what had been gained, they knew why and accepted the reasons, they knew it was always fluid and that there was much to come, the shape and form, the response and denial, the passing of each moment as loss and freedom, the two sides of a coin that is spinning on it's edge.
