Red in the Morning.

– “Red in the Morning” – sunrise in Marysville, January 23rd, 2019 – 7:47 am – Atlantic Time –

— An opening line from the original “Kung-Fu” teevee series that stuck with me all this time: “To learn all there is to know about the good in this world, one lifetime is not enough – To learn all there is to know about evil – one hour is too much.”

—> The Hindu model of the cycles of life in the material world – and they kept knowledge from rumoured golden ages when we on earth may have had technologies that dwarf what we have today – says that at about 500 AD we hit rock bottom in a 26,000 year cycle that effects our ability to think and reason and live – at rock bottom most ‘intelligent’ life on earth could only understand the purely physical. The ‘vibrations’ in that region of the material universe are so dense they make it nearly impossible to use our minds to anything like our full potential.

— In about 1500 AD we progressed to the next level where most sentient life could understand the concept of electricity – electricity could travel through metal like water could travel through a sponge. { So maybe a soul could live inside a physical body? }

— We may be approaching the next higher level – where most of us will understand that magnetism can control electricity and effect the physical aspects of life. { I’m not sure whether human consciousness goes up and/or down through 3 or 4 levels of understanding and ability to perceive and think – The Hindu model says we have seven physical ‘chakras’ or energy centers in our bodies. The lowest one is the sexual center – which actually operates on energy that is higher and finer than some of the higher centers. There is a reason that human beings feel ‘religious experiences’ during and just after sexual experiences – especially when higher emotion, like love, empathy, or appreciation, admiration, and stuff like that is involved. – But human consciousness can almost certainly evolve to the point where we can use our higher intellectual functions to control magnetism and thereby electro-magnetic currents and forces, etc. – The physical center is next up the ladder, then the lower intellectual center – {{ego}} Then the emotional center – {{ Emotions happen faster and at a finer level than ‘academic thought’ – You can’t control your emotions with your ego }} –  Then there’s the higher intellectual center – where creativity and inspiration come through – above that we become aware of ‘super-consciousness’ where ‘saints’ and psychopaths can tune in on ‘spooky interactions at a distance’ and perceive stuff going on in parallel dimensions and either believe they’re losing their minds or cross their fingers and hope they’re experiencing evolution on a personal level. – above that individuals discover ‘psychic’/’spiritual’ powers – like telekinesis and astral travel and all that fantastic stuff that pseudo science calls delusion, because if they haven’t experienced something – it doesn’t exist in their understanding and when their egos are empowered – they have to strike out and convince themselves that anybody who ‘believes’ in that kind of ‘nonsense’ must be delusional at best and psychotic at worst – and probably dangerous. – Dangerous to anybody with a closed mind and shaky grasp of what reality just might be all about. } { When you are fully identified with your sexual center, guess what you want to do? – When you are fully identified with your physical center you probably want to remain at rest forever – When you click in to your lower intellectual center you like to learn and quantify and label and count – When you click in to your emotional center – you want to hug a lot and nurture a lot & you may want to get even with real and/or imaginary slights by people you care about – or anyone who threatens those you care about. — When you click in to your higher intellectual center – you want to know who we are, where we came from, is there a God? Is there life after physical death – do our parents and teachers have any idea what is actually happening here? – And you start to get answers and hunger and thirst for more — When you click into your ‘higher emotional center’ you feel overwhelming love and compassion for all beings and want to communicate with Buddhas and Saints and Sages and Spiritual Masters – and you start by hoping that it is true that all true religious teachers have discovered that the ultimate Truth behind all Religions is constant and all the truly ‘enlightened’ ones agree completely on what Heaven and Earth are all about and the perceived differences between religious teachings come about because that ‘One Truth’ has to be described in terms that people in all the various cultures and levels of understanding can grasp and believe in. —> And there may actually be more and higher levels – but if you haven’t been ‘infected’ with the experience of slightly higher levels – and never had the kind of experience that really opens your eyes and heart and mind – you probably won’t believe there is anything out there or up there – so ‘They’ tell us ‘we can’t get there from here’ and if you try to stay on top of the ocean – you sink – and if you try to sink – you float { Thank You Allan Watts } – and if you spend time and energy trying to see into the Divine before you’re ready, all you’re going to get is frustration – so for now – just believe that unlimited consciousness and immortality in the depths of your consciousness is possible { but a few attitudes and ‘states of mind’ might need to change along the way – and you’ll have to wait and see what all that is like when it happens to you. }

— The last big jump up for those of us in the material universe might come in a couple more thousand years when most of us understand that consciousness can control magnetism, which can control electricity, which can effect physical/material objects. – This would be the fabled ‘golden age’ When the majority of sentient beings on this planet begin to understand what life is all about, why we’re here and what ‘God’ might be all about.

{ This explanation of mine is probably an extremely basic, almost simplistic explanation of what Hindu philosophers and ‘saints’ discovered many thousand years ago, back before Göbekli Tepe days, possibly before Gilgamesh and his gang were here. }

— And the ‘Don’t take anything I say as the Ultimate Truth of all existence – Test it – and see if you can punch holes in it – run it up the flagpole and see if anybody drags it down and burns it – and then try to figure out what their agenda might be.’ – cautionary warning label here could be that no giant steps forward by our whole diverse population can be guaranteed when you add the monkey wrench of free will into that equation. – But without that monkey wrench we just might wither and die spiritually.

— I should quit here, but let me add that the Hindu philosophers have preserved the idea or ‘knowledge’ that the material universe is the lowest and smallest of several dimensional universes, with the ‘Astral’ or emotional universe being the next finest and much larger universe, where many believe we all go when we dream, — and then the ‘Causal’ or higher intellectual universe is that much finer and larger than the ‘Astral’ universe – and those who have progressed to that level can create anything they want to by exercising the power of their minds —> and there is something beyond the Causal universe that we’re not supposed to be able to comprehend until we graduate from the gross, mind-numbing electro-magnetic disturances that rule the material universe. } <— Could this be a decent hypothesis to test and think about and try to prove or disprove? Rumours from the Golden ages hint that science without an open mind is like trying to walk or run with one leg paralyzed.

Politickal Schnarr & Evil

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018 —> +42˚F / +6˚C & sunny in Ithaca, New York at 3:05 pm.

— Let me start with something a friend blurted out once:

= = = = =

— “There are only two kinds of people in this world. — Angels in Training and Angels in Trouble. … And many of us have one foot in each camp. And quite a few of us are Centipedes…..”

= = = = =

Statue of Liberty Hiding her tears.

“The effects of testosterone poisoning on US Politiks as seen by the rest of the world?”

— And Ideas and philosophies that stuck with me: …

— “A society is judged by the way it treats its most vulnerable and least empowered citizens.”

— “The military model: ‘You get out there and you tell them anything you have to – to get them to do what I ordered you to tell them to do – or you can find yourself facing a courts martial!’ — isn’t just a symptom – it may be the basis of the “Information is power” / “Need to know” culture where the truth has no value as far as those who want to wield power are concerned. Disinformation rules – and only a select few at the top of the authoritarian food chain have a clue as to what “The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth” actually is.”

— “The social pyramid is a complete illusion. If and when those who have been convinced that they are at the bottom of the delusional power structure refuse to believe that those who claim to be above them are any better than they are, or have any right to tell them what to do, and walk away – The whole thing will collapse in on itself.”

= = = = =

— I intend to Expound on this subject extensively in the next couple days, but right now, I’m at work and something important just came up, so, stay tuned for the rest of my thoughts on this subject.

Sunday, April 8th, 2018 —>  +3˚C / +37˚F & grey and cloudy @2:19 pm in Atlantic Canada – on Vicki Joyce’s Birthday & Rob Burnett’s birfday, & on this date in 1961 Mom told me that Nancy was on her way 🙂 –

Sunday Morning in Atlantic Canada

– Looking Toward Canada Street – at about 11:00 am this morning –

— Not feeling 100% – pretty good one minute, dull  & blah the next? Should I blame the weather?

— Yesterday I downloaded a newer Bento version and clicked ‘Try it’-  Because the danged thing will not allow me to buy it outright or enter my 35 digit key from the previous version I bought before we moved to New Brunswick — and thereby upgrade to that version without it committing software suicide in 30 days. This new version was a whole lot more user friendly than the previous version, but I’m afraid to upgrade my database because it might render everything useless when the month long trial period is over. ‘Filemaker Pro’ wants me to buy their latest and ‘greatest’ ‘offering’ —>  For a ‘mere’ $1,200.00 per year. —> Apple has died and been replaced by Bill Gates? —>  Schnarr!

— Ya think I’m kidding when I talk about Economic Warfare being waged against everybody?

— Grumble grumble grumble –
