Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Data has been coming in to me today. It has been hard to handle.

At some point today, I whimsically wondered if Christ is an antenna. And if the cross is an antenna. And if the sun is an antenna.

Brother’s radio comes on, plays “All we are is dust in the wind.”

My ipod song immediately plays, “5546,5 – Suddenly there’s a valley plays”

I immediately google 5546,5, wondering what it could refer to, and find “Helicoil 5546-5 M5 x 0.8 Metric Coarse Thread Repair Kit”; this seems to allude to a “helical antenna.” I find it very intriguing, especially since I had just wondered about the sun being an antenna.

I write a note, “How would aliens communicate with us? Or God? Could a sun be an amplifier of a signal?”

I do some more chatty stuff with googling and the radio, debate solipsism with it, etc. I feel more and more compelled to tell people about the antenna and the song.

Other things come up intimating that I am an incarnation of Christ or that there is nothing other than me, although I am having difficulty accepting this perception and am skeptical of it as an incomplete understanding of a situation. Christ is an antenna and “me” is a rough thing to delineate.

I am convinced that I need to write. Am agitated, because I feel that I have a responsibility to be working as well. But it seems that the communication stream is very insistent upon me writing.

I write a long narrative (I’ll attach a link to it later) and the songs seem to get very angry at me.

Mom comes in, was out. She said, “You wouldn’t believe the things that happened to me today, a weird string of coincidences.”

I tell her about my stuff in a roundabout way, about the struggle with feeling compelled to write a narrative, yet feeling very torn and tired with it all.

Our Internet connection won’t let me do any work. I check connection again by trying to go to Facebook, and find this entry as the first entry on 2:58 p.m:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/02/23/3146111.htm?section=justin

Christchurch in New Zealand article–the first time I come across it. I guess it happened last night? I don’t know. I haven’t been watching the news. “Rescuers have had to amputate limbs to free survivors from collapsed buildings in earthquake-hit Christchurch, police said this morning, estimating 100 people remained trapped in the rubble.”

3:01 p.m. I turn on my Ipod to see what song comes up.
Assassinate (Take 1) Visite du vigile by Miles Davis

(I’m thinking that it is commentary from God-concept/superconsciousness that it has the power to wipe out towns.)

3:03 – A lecturer comes on–the title is track 23. Words from the lecture: “I never tell people who won.”

3:05 – Next Lecturer Brooks Landon comes on my ipod, with the lecture, “Prompts of Explanation…” and it seems to reinforce the idea that I should write, reflect, and comment upon my experiences.

3:34 – Our Internet is still bad, unless it has to do with things I feel compelled to do, like post this post.

Track 23 makes me think of the 23rd psalm:

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

Footnotes:
Psalm 23:4 Or the valley of the shadow of death

Also, the reference to “valley” makes me think “crater” –

Also found out that sunspots can cause earthquakes. http://www.thunderbolts.info/tpod/2005/arch05/051221earthquake.htm

This is an ominous post, I know–I’ve been going through this mystical experience and am hoping to write more about it.

I was hoping that we could actually think our way through to a better possibility, and make some radical changes to our way of life to be better citizens of this big ball of information, this “ness” that we’re in. But some of the this seems to be coming to me as a mandate from this superconsciousness–a mandate that it could use the sun, if it wanted, to try and make us be better stewards.

I feel guilty about the people of ChristChurch as I had prayed to the sun that perhaps it could disrupt or augment cell phone communications if this would help the bees survive. I’ve also asked the sun to prioritize the earth as an organism first, with its animals and plants and currents and insect world, and to consider us as an afterthought, but that I hope that we can be better people on this planet. I’ve also asked the superconsciousness to try to treat every sentient entity compassionately for the net benefit of all perceiving entities, with an equitable distribution of luck and joy.

I am resolving to make some changes, to change as much as I can to be a more cautious consumer of energy. As much as I can.

 

The News in hindsight, 2020 – 9/19/2020

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

In this episode, we travel back in time to the psychologically significant year 2010…

Blogger Lady K said:

I think Obama could do well to listen to Clinton’s advice, although I’m disappointed with Clinton’s free trade initiatives and other things. As far as dealing with the public, though, I think Clinton has a lot to say.

In the current year, 2020, we now know that Obama did well to cherry-pick the best advice possible from former presidents. Thanks to Obama’s 2010 initiatives, the old problems with the economy, weather, and the divisiveness of the world have ceased to exist. Obama was elected to a second term, and the Democratic-Republicans continue to improve the US and we are now an ethical member of the UN.

It was important that mainstream media started picking up more difficult stories–“U.S. troops accused of killing Afghans ‘for sport.’ The recognition that the US had been acting as an imperial power turned around the perception in the public of what it means to occupy and bomb other countries for resources and revenge. Thank goodness we are making reparations and the Iraqi people are now prosperous even though oil is no longer a fuel of significance to our economy. The resilience of the Afghan people through occupation of the former Soviet Union, the Taliban and the United States has been an inspiration to us all. The brave women who transformed Afghan society–who woulda thunk they’d’ve turned their burquas into junk? Of course, we now have burqua appreciation societies all over the world, including France.

“Lawmakers divided on expiration of Bush tax cuts”–

Lawmakers bravely decided during those critical years to stop supporting such a striated system that extracted wealth from the lower and middle classes and redistributed it to the upper classes. This article is emblematic of the turning point we made to a healthier society with more equitable wealth distribution. We soon closed the tax loopholes as well.

The Weather – hurricanes that happened in 2010. In blogger Lady K’s words:

Fanapi has touched down on land. A lot of people have evacuated Taiwan. I hope there are few deaths and that people in danger of mudslides evacuate their areas.

Igor has weakened, as has Julia. I think it is because both are heading northish, possibly into cooler waters? Seems like goodish news.

Thank goodness we all have weather control now, in collaboration with Gaia and the Sun. His and her consciousnesses continue to communicate with us to better regulate Gaia’s systems.

 

The real news report – 9/18/2010

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

I am collapsing wave functions by rewriting what is happening/has happened/will happen. All this is truly happening:

News:

Morrissey is apologizing to Asian people for his having said an unkind remark.

All eyes are on Clinton, the Israelis and the Palestinians as they enter these most historic peace talks. The talks will have been known to have ignited permanent peace in the Middle East.

US troops are returning to Iraq to repair the war-ravaged country under the direction of the Iraqi government. The oil has been nationalized and made to work for the Iraqi people for the intermediate, until the planet can transition to sustainable energy sources.

US troops are exiting Afghanistan. The Taliban is becoming less extreme as people under its rule start to change the organization from the inside out. The Afghans are voting and all the threats were way overblown.

The Democrats and Republicans are forming a “new” party, the Democratic-Republicans. Corporate influence is being banned. The Greens are being incorporated into the new party as well–it’s got quite a large tent, I hear. The pragmatic parts of the Tea Party and Peace movements are being incorporated into the larger whole, the Democratic-Republican party.

The US is releasing Iranians, and Iran is releasing US citizens. It’s all good.

The jobless rate is improving and people who have fallen off unemployment are finding work as well.

– –

Fun stuff:

A Florida man has built a cat-sized village for 660 formerly homeless cats.

I’ve always had luck finding four leaf clovers and living a charmed life. So this article seems to correspond well to my thoughts of late.

– –

Difficult stuff:

The scary stuff on commondreams.org has been found to have been overblown at times. The conscientious following of the news was coupled with condemnation and demonization of ‘the opposition.’ But now that the Democratic-Republicans have included the Greens as part of their base, commondreams has very little to rant about anymore.

Alternet.org is addressing things in a pragmatic way, and the Democratic-Republicans are looking into it to fix remnants of problems from less sane times.

Foxnews.com is as ever bringing up some of the pragmatic aspects of working well together under the UN in a world composed of different cultures.

Palin’s decided she’d much rather stick to enjoying the environment of Alazka than coming down south where the air is so sticky and frizzes her hair.

– –

Morning Weather:

I am pleased to report that fewer deaths have occurred or will occur or are occurring from hurricanes.

Karl has moved further inland. This means that it is petering out and not getting so much steam from the Gulf.

Julia and Igor still there, as is Fanapi. They are all finding cooler patches of water and losing strength.

The heavy rains in Croatia were much needed and will go away soon.

Will have to work on the droughts as soon as I can find a better world map of droughts. Not sure I want to focus on tornados until tornado season.

Hope Report – 9/17/2010

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Inspiration

Info on green jobs–I believe green jobs are ultimately a huge opportunity for business to make lots & lots of money, to produce lots & lots of employment, and will help heal the planet as well.

Australian Aborigines “world’s first astronomers.” An Australian study has uncovered signs that the country’s ancient Aborigines may have been the world’s first stargazers, pre-dating Stonehenge and Egypt’s pyramids by thousands of years.

The News

More positive developments for Korea. I hope the recent rice helped: “2 Koreas discuss reuniting families divided by war.”

Good news on the Gulf oil well–“Gulf oil well on verge of being plugged for good.”

“Census: 1 in 7 Americans lives in poverty”
The above is a challenging article to me. I believe that ultimately for the good of our psychology and for the good of the planet, it is better to move to a communal living situation and/or extended family living situation. The nuclear family model is actually highly unusual, and is indicative of the breakdown of family support. It also consumes a lot of resources.

I also feel that the government needs to start creating good jobs for people on unemployment, ones that help rebuild the infrastructure in a green way. I would like for unemployment benefits to be extended forever.

In a civilized society, we will not have to race and compete so hard with each other. In a civilized society, we will work less, and enjoy life more. In a civilized society, many more people will become paid artisans and entertainers, and they will enjoy their work.

In a civilized society, everyone will have good, basic, inexpensive health care. What is happening right now in the US is atypical of what is going on in the world. We paid only $30 for an emergency room visit, ekg and consultation with doctors in Croatia. We paid $1800 for a hernia surgery in Mexico. The US is ripping people off, people. They wanted to charge us $600 for some cotton stuffed up Smith’s nose. This is criminal, not sustainable, and must change. I RESPECTFULLY COMMAND IT SO.

Psychology

I hope people stop feeling that they need to kill animals in order to feel powerful:

3 teens suspended after allegedly killing kangaroo

The Weather

Looks like Karl has moved off the coast of Mexico, but it has developed into a hurricane. I hope it will go away. I’ve been watching Julia and Igor for five days. I hope they will go away. Fanapi hasn’t progressed toward land; that’s good. I RESPECTFULLY COMMAND THE HURRICANES TO GO AWAY.

Severe rains in Slovenia. I hope it’s OK.

I’m hoping the extreme drought in Louisiana & W. Virginia goes away.

Lady
