Frightening Facts



So unbelievable, they are clung to like the next breath to both theologians and scientists alike.

Making up answer story theories where when none need to be. Entropic dissolution will not spontaneously occur if either or neither are bought sold and repackaged or owned.

In regards to creationism or the big bang. Unbelievable, improbable, illogical, unlikely, repetitive, regurgitated, recycled, referenced.

Both seem to be more provably baseless, by their own basis.

Creationism

Genesis 1 1-2

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

If the entire void was void, where did the water come from, other than being a representative of consciousness. Hmmm?

Science

Albert Einstein announced his discovery of the equation E = mc2 and, as a consequence, the two laws above were merged into the Law of Conservation of Mass-Energy: the total amount of mass and energy in the universe is constant.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be changed from one form to another.”

~~Albert Einstein

Even after that, science expects me to believe, that an infinite number of galaxies, black holes, super novas all emanated from a microscopic dot. Please. Do they have a bridge to sell too?

Both are merely prime examples of the “Grandma’s Ham”* parable. Where we blindly and sadly accept what has been indoctrinated…..because it has always been that way.

I am neither a theologian, or a scientist but rather a thinker, reader, listener, observer and a truck driver. Passing through a linear mind field to observe what is most likely happening.

All that is, merely is, just changes its shape as a matter of course through exchanges of energy transformations. Gatherings and repulsions due to the phenomenon of gravity.

“Let’s just think about this for a minute”

– Bill Hicks

Think of the freedom and power one would have accepting that. Free from chasing or looking for a non existent source. That the miracle itself remains in the awareness and awe, of being a being of consciousness, that emanates from the whole, to experience what the entirety of infinity has to offer.

* “Grandma’s Ham”

A husband and his wife were in their kitchen. The husband was sitting at the kitchen table reading the newspaper while his wife was preparing a ham for dinner. (Such a sexist parable, you can put in your characters.)

The husband watched the wife cut off about one inch from either end of the ham. He asked why she cut the end off, proclaiming “that’s a waste of good ham!”

She said “that’s the way my mom prepared the ham.” The husband asked “why did your mom cut the ends off?” The wife didn’t know.

Later, the wife called her mom to find out why she cut the ends of the ham off. Her mom said “because that was the way my mom prepared ham.”

The wife’s grandma passed away several years earlier, but her Grandpa was still living.

She called her Grandpa and asked “Grandpa, why did Grandma cut the ends off of the ham?”

He was silent as he thought for a moment. Then he replied, “so the ham could fit in the baking pan.”

Our collective consciousness expands with the Pan of Consciousness. Still, we keep trimming our awareness to what fits in comfortably of the small pan that used to be.

Like believing the moon was made of cheese or heavier-than-air flight was possible, etc.

I do not mean to be a contrarian, it is just emanates from my name. Angelo Devlin. Likewise angel and devil, it is all I’ve known.

IS

From the cheap seats of my theoretical nonexistent existence. There is no easier perceive-able concept to cling to, than IS.

“Is: dialectal present tense plural of BE”

– M-W.com

Accepting that I am but a tiny infinitesimally small fractional inconsequential bit of the whole, while also being the whole, gigantic mega colossal infinite.

With absolutely zero, zip, zilch, nada, nothing of any sort of alpha and or omega evidence, that can heard, tasted, touched, seen or smelled.

If for nothing else, the bipedal earthling artist, that formed out of some gooey, thick, hot sticky primordial ooze.

Feels compelled to quantify its miraculous, not so miraculous future pull / pool of consciousness with a fantasy story that starts with, “Once upon a time”, “In the beginning”, or “KABOOM”

Knowing full / fool well, that when it gets to “The End”, new stories arise as sequels, prequels, retellings with different characters and wild extrapolations.

All based on being derivatives of the WORD*, into more words, more descriptions, clearer understandings, new definitions, better meanings.

Though none will ever be solid enough to hold on to forever like space, time, gravity, light, heat, smell, sound. Try it for yourself, put any one of those in your hand to hold.


“The Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

John 1:1 

Guess what, that makes…..you.

Do not believe me, follow it out to your own logical or illogical conclusion, linearly in either direction, rather any direction. Since it is always spinning all ways.

Through everything and nothing regardless of velocity or probable location. That will never be where it once was. If it was / is “there” at all.

This also popped into my head.


“I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath
Before I start off again
Driven on
Without a moment to spend
To pass an evening
With a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin
I’d like to pause,
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim
Who learns to transcend
Learns to live
As if each step was the end

Time stand still
I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
Time stands still
See more of the people
And the places that surround me now

Time stands still

Freeze this moment
A little bit longer
Make each sensation
A little bit stronger

Experience slips away
Experience slips away

Time stands still

I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defenses down
All those wounds
That I can’t get unwound

I let my past go too fast
No time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain
Whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around

Time stand still
I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
Time stands still
See more of the people
And the places that surround me now

Freeze this moment
A little bit longer
Make each sensation
A little bit stronger

Make each impression
A little bit stronger
Freeze this motion
A little bit longer

The innocence slips away
The innocence slips away

Time stands still
Time stands still

I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people
And the places that surround me now

Time stands still

Summer’s going fast
Nights growing colder
Children growing up
Old friends growing older

Freeze this moment
A little bit longer
Make each sensation
A little bit stronger

Experience slips away
Experience slips away
The innocence slips away”

Weightless



My motoring muse has presented me with yet another muddled message to play with. In the form of a Pro-birth billboard. By Pro-birthers.

Who always seem to have fresh money to keep putting up crisp new graphically detailed brightly colored well lit passive income producers. Hmmm.

Those marketing mavens are clever sonsabitches aren’t they, always manipulating a message to generate profit.

The latest one depicts a picture of an airbrushed glowing pink pixilated fresh fetus.

(They must be able to afford expensive hi-tech cameras, all the ones I have ever seen are black and white and very grainy).

Anyway, that large fetus (not actual size) picture is next to another (not actual size) picture of a diamond. With the statement and a question:

Both have the same weight, which has more value?

Hmmm? Must be a trick question. Because of soooooo maaaany variables not presented on the billboard. Am going to have to put my thinking cap on.

FYI (so you might keep reading) I am all in favor of making sure every fetus, makes it out of the womb safely. Every one, all over the earth, to experience what this dense dimension has to offer. Methinks that they just not need to be planted in the first place.

“Too many people
causing too many
problems, not enough
love to go around.”

– Genesis

“Land of Confusion”

Quite frankly, am all for not murdering any human beings, regardless of the euphemistic language used to conceal the truth.

“The CIA doesn’t kill anybody anymore, they neutralize people…or they depopulate the area.”

– George Carlin

Having an abortion, sounds like you tried the Avocado Bacon Onion Radish Taco at the new delicatessen across the street.

Now back to the value question. Since the comparison is to that of a diamond 💎. It must be the diamond.

After all, for example, it takes many adolescents to teenagers working in prison / slave like conditions to mine the diamonds in Africa. All because people have been indoctrinated to believe that a shiny rock, cut creatively is worth doing that kind of stuff to human beings for.

For further consideration, diamonds are transported in small vehicles with armed guards. Students are driven in old busses by poorly paid drivers.

Diamonds are kept in a cool environment, well lit with individual attention to make sure they shine. Students are often packed in cramped quarters in excessive heat, overseen by an underpaid individual responsible for their outcome, with competing rules and difficult parents.

Every billboard is built, and used by whoever wishes to generate or increase income, no matter what. Hotels, gas stations, banks, radio stations, websites, etc. All for more money.

The billboard you will not see, is the one rented by the construction company, (again, used to create future revenue on solicited projects) thanking the Pro-birthers for using company x to build the new foster home’s children center and day care.

Why spend that billboard generated income on putting money where their mouth is, when it is easier to tug at the heart strings of the congregation to kick in for yet another billboard? To justify where a tiny portion of the donations go, the rest going to the bank. Or pockets of the pastors and priests.

With some weightless trick question. Fooling themselves, they are actually doing something.

Maybe, and I doubt this is true, but will consider it. Maybe I am just jealous, that all my clever use of words doesn’t generate $#@t.

But then again, this would be unreadable on a billboard going by at 80 mph.

Point Less


Like the entirety of this blog. Pointless.

Oddly claimable, out of context


Psalm 33 12

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

Saw this, not on a bumper sticker, rather, a covering half the truck tailgate sticker. The other half was covered with some MAGA megalomaniac message.

Are egos so fragile, that in order for an individual to scrape and claw for their perception and scraps of their own divinity, they feel compelled to purchase adhesive based vinyl placarding with printed wavy flag backgrounds, to express something that was never intended for the occupiers of this country in the first place?

Coercing the occupants in following vehicles to consider that the driver of the truck ahead of them is so special he is to be considered a beneficiary of God’s own inheritance?

Why would anyone do that, or express that to everyone, let alone, believe it is true?

When further minimal research reveals the context to include everybody on the planet.

Psalm 33 13-14

13 The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. 14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.


“Let me tell you something folks, God Does not give a flying fuck about America, ok? He doesn’t care.  He never cared about this country. He never has.  He never will.  He doesn’t care about this country any more than he cares about Mongolia, Transylvania, Pittsburgh, the Suez Canal or the North Pole. He simply doesn’t care, ok.  

Listen, there are 200 countries in the world, do these people honestly think God is sitting around picking out his favorites?

Why would he do that?

Why would God have a favorite country?  And why would it be America of all the countries?  Because we have the most money?  Because he likes our national anthem? Maybe it’s because he heard we have 18 delicious flavours of classic Rice-O-Ronie?

It’s Delusional Thinking.

If these people believe in God, they must have heard that God Loves Everyone, and he loves them equally.  So why would these people ask God to do something that goes against his own teaching?  Maybe they ought to check with that Jesus fella.  They’re always talking about “What would Jesus do”?  

They don’t want to know so they can do it, they just want to know so they can tell other people to do it.”

Sad But True

Or perhaps a better title

“The Devil You Know”


Relax

This is just a thought experiment




So grab your society scope

Focus what is under the slimy slide

Here is what you’ll see

Self squished together

With all of their FJB Flags and

Let’s go Brandon Stickers

Plus 45 is our president sentiments




Now rest your weary eyes and close them

Pictures it is 2024 during the primaries

For the Republican nomination

It is 45 against……… Jesus Christ

Who has finally returned to

Make his home planet great again

Since like his opponent he has no money

He plays off his notoriety to be

Followed relentlessly by the media

Makes no promises just does what he does

Feeding the hungry

Caring for the indigent

Healing the sick

Regardless of skin color

Social status or possessions

Multitudes of people

Whatever faith or none

Teaches his way to the light

Duplicated by the healed and satiated

45 is losing ground quickly

So he cries FAKER NEWS even louder

Going into the election

It is a sad but true close race……

Guess who “wins”

Yep, 45 because it is better to go with

The devil you know

Than an enlightened

Master of Wisdom

Spiritual teacher

With a track record

Of provable behavior and kindness

Who has no obligation

To the gun lobby, oil corporations

Or the pharmaceutical industry

Who after a gracious loss

Continues to do what he does

No popularity contest for ego























The Agreement



Has been signed

The waiver released

For your participation

On this wild ride

In this bizarre reality

Miraculously maintained

Everything works

The way it is supposed to

Glitches notwithstanding

The house of mirrors

Is the trickiest

Sometimes considered

The most dangerous

Reflecting mostly

What is inside

The liability is all yours

For how you choose

To interact with the

Waves and particles

Changing at moments

So fast you won’t notice

Feel emotions you can’t touch

See things that aren’t there

Remaining in this dimension

Till such a time you select

Transferring to another reality



Where is that agreement

To be signed?

Must be at the home office




“The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly coloured and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, “Hey — don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride…”

And we… kill those people.

“Shut him up.”

“We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real.”

Just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter because:

“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 defences 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

Money, Faith, Reality


Money can not buy faith, but faith can buy money.

If someone offered you a billion dollars to believe something you did not believe, you could not do it. You might be able to say you believe it, for the money. Yet, if the ability to spend it is, contingent on believing the paid for “belief”, you would have anything extra to spend.

Because, you would know, you didn’t believe something unbelievable to you.

Therefore, money can not buy faith.

However, the “money” you do have in the bank is non existent. It is represented by ink on paper, or digits displayed on a screen. Still, your “faith”, can “buy” that you “have” money.

Faith:

2 b (1) : firm belief in something for which there is no proof

M-W.com

“Pretty neat deal, huh? You know how we got it? We made the whole fucking thing up!”

– George Carlin

Seems a tad ironic, that the “money”, you do have, you don’t. That the money you could have, you can’t. Which, either real reality, is…….based on faith. Still, am quite sure, you can take that……..to the bank.

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

– Angelo Devlin

Since my faith, tells me, I am wearing glasses in the first place.

Inspired by the last post, regarding money’s existence and listening to Brian Greene’s audio book “The Fabric Of The Cosmos” Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality.

To which, I’ve only started listening to. Or already know all the information inside, and am just listening to it as a reminder.

That’s another post, for another “time”, linearly speaking.

Speaking Of Belief

A follow-up to Money, Faith, Reality.


Having gleaned everything so far in this dense dimension, and I do mean dense. It is my clearest or vaguest perception. That all that is, is. Always has been, always will be.

Like God and words, malleable and ever changing depending on the subjective view of a divine being’s coagulation of cells.

Miraculously formed into an artist as a bi-pedal oxygen breathing, monoxide exhaling, red-blooded, skeleton supported, solar powered, carbon-based, large brained, earth inhabitant omnivore.

Anything to the contrary, such as an invisible dude floating in the ether was bored and “made” everything for his deadly amusement.

Or, that it all came from a big bang of an exploding baseball, are both distractions keeping everyone separate from knowing that we are all one consciousness, and could behave accordingly.

“No tree has branches so foolish 
as to fight amongst themselves.”

~ Native American Proverb 

No theologian or scientist is likely or unlikely to convince me otherwise with their nonexistent proof.

No matter (ha) how close Michelangeloian hand of man to God close anyone gets to explaining away a beginning, there is always a prior existence of the existence of nothing. Which in and of itself is something.

It all comes down to what one believes.

Death Debt

First up, money does not exist*. It is an implement of manufactured consent, used to barter exchanges. Usually time for money, then money for possessions. When neither exist.

Save for the arbitrary mental manipulation that if you want to “own” something, you will have to “work” for it. Giving twenty five or so percentage of it, for the privilege to do so.

Pssst. (Hint.) If you can’t take it with you, you can’t own it.

When we all could be working to make sure everyone is housed and fed, with clean drinking water. Nah, we don’t want to “own” that. We’ll leave that……up to Jesus.

Nudnicks are coming out of the woodwork to regurgitate what was repeated on Faux news, without thought or comparison as to real debts that will have to be paid. Crying and whining to no one who will listen due to school loans being forgiven. Boo hoo.

With viral memes expressing soap opera sentiments like.

“Congrats to everyone who didn’t have college debt. Now you do”. Or “Just to be clear, there is no plan to eliminate student debt. There is a plan to transfer that debt to those that don’t owe it.” Waaah.

Who is going to pay the death debt to the Karmic cashier, for all the human deaths that occur from state sanctioned murders of Sovereign citizens, for cheap, blood on our hands resources. Filling our tanks and making batteries, that we may work. While destroying the home we live in/on.

Executions of slow adults who may not have understood their actions, or random racist murders of unarmed black people, strictly for being black. Hmmm?

To which as taxpayers we are all witting and unwitting accomplices. Guessing the collective is going to let Jesus catch that debt too. When the fuck, are we going to be responsible for our self’s? Jesus, has to be close to broke at this point, don’t you think?

How about all the invisible money given to corporations to make sure they remain solvent. Having already been built and maintained by the proletarian “work” force.

Like auto manufacturers and get this…banks. Ooops, almost forgot, we need cars to drive to work to pay the bank interest on manufactured “money”. Hmmm.

“This whole motherfucking economy built on a house of cards. First of all, you gotta get this shit, get that federal reserve back on a gold standard. What the fuck is that? We got government printing off Fiat currency.

//

It’s a *charade fiat currency. The consumer gotta understand, that the currency only have as much value as the consumer have faith in the currency, you gotta back that shit up with precious metal. 

Fuck Keynesian economic Philosophy.”

– Doug Stanhope

Meanwhile, we are driving by ourselves on shitty roads, that if the engineers whose debt we may have paid, could get to work on a solution for that, or high speed rail. Or some other form of public transportation, where one might be confronted with getting to know …………. themself.

“Blood On The World’s Hands”

“Sometimes it makes me wonder
Sometimes it makes me question
Sometimes it makes me saddened
Always it makes me angry but…

When you can see it happening
The madness that’s all around you
Nobody seems to worry
The world seems so powerless to act…

It’s out of control
Blood on the world’s hands
Each day a new toll

Another assassination
The same day a new creation
But what are they coming into
Security of a world that brings…

One day another killing
Somewhere there’s someone starving
Another a savage raping
Meanwhile there’s someone
Laughing at us

It’s out of control
Blood on the world’s hands
Each day it goes on

Brutality and aggression
Tomorrow another lesson
Expecting another air raid
Praying for a ceasefire

They say things are getting better
No need to be complacent
There’s chaos across the border
And one day it could be happening to us

It’s out of control
Blood on the world’s hands
It’s our epitaph
It’s out of control
Someone should know
Blood on the world’s hands

Someone Should”


– Iron Maiden















Replace The Word



GOD


With the word, WORD

Besides, it is in the Bible.

“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

John 1:1 

It actually broadens the scope of the power, as an all powerful entity by removing the largest obstacle from us reaching our divine evolution. That a shadowy Santa Clause, grandfatherly caricature type is always creepily watching you.

“He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is comin’ to town

(He sees you when you’re sleeping)
(He knows when you’re awake)
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
{So be good for goodness sake}!”

And of course…

“Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do.

And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time!.
 
But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He’s all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can’t handle money! “

– George Carlin

WORD does not make that distinction,

Sometimes allegedly helping you in ways that make no sense, nor did you or would you ask or pray for. Either way being obligated to thank him for answered or unanswered prayers.

Sometimes I thank Word
For unanswered prayers
Remember when you’re talkin’
To the Word in here

That just because Word doesn’t answer
Doesn’t mean Word don’t care
Some of Word’s greatest gifts
Are unanswered prayers

Apologies to Garth Brooks

“In the beginning WORD created the heavens and the earth.”

– Genesis 1 1

If there were no WORD, there would be no words to describe things, or exist in the first place. Heaven or earth only exist because of the words.

“Words are all we have, really. We have thoughts but thoughts are fluid. Then we assign a word to a thought and we’re stuck with that word for that thought, so be careful with words.

I like to think that the same words that hurt can heal, it is a matter of how you pick them.”

– George Carlin

I am breaking this down as I go along. Let’s try, “WORD” be with you. That works, one would never be left alone in silence, all by themselves because Word/s would always be with them.

WORD is all powerful, all knowing, well of course, all you have to do is read WORD’s holy book…..The Unabridged Dictionary, it is all there, usually with “cross” references.

If one doesn’t understand the word, there is always the thesaurus to help. Also no-one would have to go to a “special building once a week to compare clothing.” – GC

Libraries are open throughout the day and are accessible online. That is the power of WORD.

WORD also translates to all languages, otherwise there would be no other language.

Thank WORD for words, otherwise we would both be staring at an empty screen.

“Just an observation,

Glad there are words for observations. Thank you and Word for stopping by to read them.
