Time To Be Alive

Now

Perhaps……

The miraculous technology is obviously very cool, from megapixels to terabytes. Self driving cars, interconnected satellites for GPS and instant planetary communication.

Likewise the creation of creature comforts is incredible. Food production, waste removal, half day intercontinental travel.

All fascinatingly amazing……..

However, it has become largely routine, to the point where some bean counter is sitting at an actuarial table calculating detailed spreadsheets. Birth and death rates, starvation and obesity statistics, glaciers melting vs. sea levels rising. Compiling more and more data on more and more metadata. Etcetera etc.

Or then say……

During the Miocene Epoch

Being one of the first hominids, making use of its evolutionary opposable thumbs. Free as all get out, granted, alive enough to wonder whether you are going to eat or be eaten. But very much alive. I can feel my heart beat rise thinking about it.

Very much connected to both life forces of mother earth and father sky. The pulsing oceans of underground internal heat matched in balance by the external heat and cool breezes.

“So here is the soul of a man

When the world was virgin
Before the coming of men
Just a solar witness
The beginning of the end

From a world of magma
To a cold rock face
The ascent of madness
And a human race”

//

“If Eternity Should Fail”

– Iron Maiden

Being very much alive…..in the……

“Superunknown”

“If this isn’t what you see
It doesn’t make you blind
Yea, if this doesn’t make you feel
It doesn’t mean you’ve died

//

If you don’t want to be seen
Well you don’t have to hide
And if you don’t want to believe
Well you don’t have to try to feel alive, yea

//

If this doesn’t make you free
It doesn’t mean you’re tied
If this doesn’t take you down
It doesn’t mean you’re high

If this doesn’t make you smile
Yea, you don’t have to cry
If this isn’t making sense
Yea, it doesn’t make it lies, oh

//

Get yourself afraid
Get yourself alone
Get yourself contained
Get yourself control, control
Yeah, oh, yeah
Oh, oh

First it steals your mind and then it steals your
First it steals your mind and then it steals your
First it steals your mind and then it steals your soul.”

– Soundgarden

Free, alive and naked too. Not adorned in some moronic loin cloth, artists like to depict early bipedal earthlings. To satiate some silly notion of either shame or modesty. Pooping and peeing in healthy balance with nature after eating and drinking. Now that is living.

Returning to the earth, what came from the earth, to be cycled like everything else. Not like trying to recycle plastic which will never get broken down to its original oil.

“The planet will be here for a long, long, LONG time after we’re gone, and it will heal itself, it will cleanse itself, ’cause that’s what it does. It’s a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed. And if it’s true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new paradigm: the earth plus plastic.

The earth doesn’t share our prejudice toward plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?”

Plastic… asshole.”

– George Carlin

Back to the freedom of the experience of being alive during the Miocene Epoch.

Which many conservatives believe only comes at the end of the barrel of a gun.

No mortgages, no bank account, no legislative governing body, no keys, no doors to lock, no appointments to keep, no places to be, no clock to watch, no watch to keep track of your steps, no car to crash in, no toilet paper therefore no toilet paper shortage. 

Dare I say it..No religion to tell you to hate your fellow primates, spawned from the same mother…..Earth. Why? Because gods or God had not been “invented” yet. Think about that.

That you are simply very much alive due to an evolutionary process, formed out of the primordial ooze on a planet in the Goldilocks zone. In an outer band of stars of just one of many billions and trillions of other galaxies.

Alive with wonder and no distractions, just raw trust in your abilities and instinct to live.

“For millions of years
Mankind lived just like the animals
Then something happenend

Which unleashed the power
Of our imagination

We learned to talk”

– Stephen Hawking

Maybe, there in LIES the problem.

Trash talking and making s#!+ up to make unaware beings of Gaia consciousness into believing an invisible man in the sky made all this by himself.  Nevermind…..

“All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.”

– Stephen Hawking /
Pink Floyd’s “Keep Talking”

Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

“The program for this evening is not new
You’ve seen this entertainment
Through and through
You’ve seen your birth your life and death
You might recall all of the rest

Did you have a good world when you died?

Enough to base a movie on?”

“The Movie” by
“The Doors”

Life Paradoxes

The only thing
Keeping me alive
Is that I have
Nothing to live for

As in an implausible
Heaven which
Doesn’t exist
Save in the mind

Or

The one thing
Keeping me alive
Is that I have
Nothing to die for

As in an implausible
Heaven which
Doesn’t exist
Save in the mind


Deep s@&t

Where this should have stopped.

Nope…..

Living as long as possible
For either death by decay

“As soon as you’re born
You are dying”

– Iron Maiden

Or death by expedition
By one’s own hands and
Will, freewill or won’t will

One way or the other
There is a knowing
That there is no end

Just by following a
Process of elimination
Pondering possibilities

There is no death
Rather only transference
Through dimensions

After all that is how
You came into being
On this plane as it were

Why else would it be
Referred to as a child
Being a new arrival

Hmmmmmmmmm?

Likewise when you
Become dead, you are
Now the departed

If it were a “matter” *
Of only being a seed
Planted in a garden

That “matter”
Is already here
Manifesting a vehicle

For the soul to travel
Around in this dimension
At this temporary moment

To live life
To its fullest
Or its diminishment

Either way
The choice is yours
Or mine or whatever

“We teach best what we need to learn most ourselves.”

– Richard Bach

Different glasses.”

*

There is no matter
Only the perception of
Observing interchangeable

Waves and particles
Interchanging as
Waves and particles

In an endless flow of
Energy altering between
Kinetic and stored

For our amusement
Never control
Just entertainment

A Weird Dialog Construct

“You know what I mean”

.

When I hear that, my head

Wants to head for the hills

Dragging my self with it

You know what I mean

After giving it the easiest

Response which is…..yeah.

To quickly satiate their ego

With a communication reward

“Yeah” or more positive “Yes”

That somehow they have

Expressed useless information

In a meaningful way that a

Fellow human being understands.

Meanwhile a fitting response

Would be …. I have no clue

For from that empty question

I am preoccupied with the

Awareness of the miracle

Of the supposed communication

In the first place, either by

A person standing near me

In a reasonable audio range

That they can open their mouth

Instantaneously convert

Thoughts into words that express

An idea or point they are making

From a membrane in the throat

Exiting moving lips having been

Manipulated in a moist mouth

By tongue teeth and breath then

Pass invisibly through the air

To be received into my ear

Where 2 sets of hammers

Anvils and stirrups are whirring away

Processing that sound into data

To go into my brain to respond

Yes, I know what you mean

To be kind and complimentary

Better still to consider when

That line is heard through a

Cellular and Bluetooth dialog

Miles and or hours apart

Most likely moving in

Different directions and speed

Then the miracle is being

Aware that the thoughts

From the brain to the throat

Are still occurring yet now

It is being transferred via

Bluetooth to a cellular device

Transmitted to a nearby tower

Then through the atmosphere

To a random roving satellite

Back down to a different tower

Connect to a cellular phone

Through a tiny Bluetooth device

To complete the whole voice

Brain throat tongue mouth ear

Information transfer thingy

Damn near instantaneously

And apparently invisibly

All the while someone concerns

Themselves whether or not if

I know what they mean.  Whew!!!

You know what I mean?

.

“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin

Where this should have stopped.

.

Since all that happens

Instantly and invisibly

Don’t you think humans

Would have the capacity

If they had something

Important to say to someone

They could think the thought

Then transfer it to the recipient

Without the monthly cell service

You know what I mean?  Ooops.

Accomplished

My biggest accomplishment

Took the least amount of effort

Which was not planting seeds

In any fertile garden, knowing of

The biological, psychological

Social structure and planetary

(There’s narcissistic ego for you)

Damage I would have caused…….

I can rest easy amongst the dead

Knowing any unwitting participants

Stayed safely in the spirit realm

“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin

Unknowingly

Knowing what you know
Is not so much about
Knowing what is known

Rather recalling what has been
Taught and indoctrinated
As focused distractions

Knowing this now is owning
What you don’t know (known)
Such as infinity is infinite

Therefore there is absolutely
Neither a beginning or an end
Let alone purpose or reason

Though that is difficult
To wrap your head around
But not at all for your heart

Leading to a deep meditation
That momentarily brings
Everything in to and out of focus

At least as far as I know

“I think we’re part of a greater wisdom than we’ll ever understand, a higher order, call it what you want. You know what I call it? The Big Electron.

The Big Electron. Woooohhhh, woooohhhh, woooohhhh. It doesn’t punish, it doesn’t reward, it doesn’t judge at all. It just is, and so are we, for a little while.”

– George Carlin

“It’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.”
.
Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride.

Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.”
.
– Bill Hicks

Impossible To Point


At Billionaires for
Being the problem
When both hands
And all 10 digits
Are rifling through
Wallets and purses
Always pulling out
Cash or plastic to
Send monie$ indirectly
To them to make them
Even bigger Billionaire$

With so much money
They have to hide
Their small penises
In a useless space race
By sending up
Big dicks into the sky
For everyone to see

Methinks if Jesus or
Mohammad or Buddha
Made that kind of cash
They would make sure
Everyone was fed

Or if by some strange
Miraculous chance
Ran mega corporations
Would spread the profits
Through the employees
For them to do their charity

(You stick with your
Masters of wisdom fantasies
I’ll stick with mine)

Where this should have stopped.

Nope, stuff keeps flowing from fingers

Kinda like blaming that
Global hamburger joint
For destroying Rainforests
When it is J Q public’s
Responsibility for buying
The slaughtered cow
Slapped into a sandwich
In the first place where
All ten digits are pointing
To one’s self, as it were.

(Did you fake hold a fake
Hamburger to check that out?)

I did.

“These people, these people are efficient, professional, compulsive consumers. It’s their civic duty. Consumption. It’s the new national pastime.

Fuck baseball. It’s consumption.

The only true lasting American value that’s left. Buying things. Buying things. People spending money they don’t have on things they don’t need. MONEY THEY DON’T HAVE ON THINGS THEY DON’T NEED.

So they can max out their credit cards and spend the rest of their lives paying 18 percent interest on something that cost 12.50. And they didn’t like it when they got it home anyway! Not too bright, folks. Not too fucking bright.”

– George Carlin

Invisible People



Invisible people
Stored in memory banks
Can not hear you
Nor respond

Try as you might
Though they may be
In an adjacent dimension
It is like talking to a wall

It may be comforting
Perhaps even bring solace
But in actual reality
“They” are not “there”

Just fragmented figments
Of imaginations gone wild
Shining no light on that
Which is very recondite

As long as I’m theorizing
Have a self conversation
With someone who’s not there
Is “their voice” yours or theirs?

Plausible Theory Theory

As to why (some, not all….. but enough so it is noticeable)

Caucasian Christian conservatives
Want no part of anything
Called “Critical Race Theory” *

The theory being
Anything with the word
Critical in it
Is like kryptonite
To Superman

See

“Critical
1. a
inclined to criticize severely and unfavorably”

M-W.com

Outwardly.  Ok.

Self reflection. Aaahhgghhh, wimper wimper.

What is that? What? Huh?

Critical thinking. (I don’t think so)

“1. c

exercising or involving careful judgment or  judicious evaluation”

M-W.com

Quick get it out of here / hear

Perhaps it should be called
Financially beneficial race theory

Or as my uncle taught me.

Everybody’s money is green

So, why in a world hell bent on crass consumerism greed pig capitalism, where everyone is a potential customer to everyone else would anyone want to disregard a potential customer simply by the color of their skin. Sounds like bad business.

a group of concepts (such as the idea that race is a sociological rather than  biological designation, and that racism pervades society and is  fostered and perpetuated by the  legal system) used for examining the  relationship between race and the  laws and legal institutions of a country and especially the United  States.

//

Critical race theory essentially forces legal scholars to ask questions, she [Kimberlé  Crenshaw] continued. For  instance, why does possession of less  expensive drugs carry higher jail  sentences than more expensive  drugs? 

Could this have anything to do with the fact that more people of  color are in prison?

“It is a way of looking at law’s role …  facilitating, producing, and even insulating racial inequality in our country, ranging from health to  wealth to segregation to policing,”  said Crenshaw …”
