Killer whales join in on Norway surfing competition

A long time ago, I was lying in bed with a girlfriend. I had told her, "Every time your stomach rumbles, that means that a decision has been made."

My stomach rumbled. But this time, it was very different.

"And, so, what decision did you make, just now?" she asked.

"I don't know," I said. "That had nothing to do with me!"

And, this was true. My gut had been taken over by CFS and, for the rest of my life, I would have no connection to what is called, my, "second brain." I had lost all intimacy with, and control of, my own gut. All my theories flew out the window. What was worse, so did the rest of my life.

Whither went my will?

Where does your will go when a concrete wall collapses upon you in an earthquake?

Did your will count for nothing, all your life?

Was it even anything to begin with?

These, and more.

A RUSSIAN LJ community concerning the past genocide of Native Americans?  (Note: Russian is in Russian).
northam_indians

I guess this is not so strange as it may seem. For one thing, there are still people in Russia who will do all they can to smear the USA, as I have said before, especially if it involves the truth. Maybe these people are all related to Putin in some way. Also, there is similarity between some Siberians, (and Mongolians), with many Native Americans.

Here's a film I recommend that ALL of you should see! - The Story of the Weeping Camel.  I am mentioning this here because, while I watched this beautiful movie, I did see some of those similarities between Mongolians and Native Americans.

(As you might know, I have been trying to study those connections, migrations, etc., and how they might relate to the emergence of the dog. The main conclusion is this: Most things happened a LOT earlier than we thought. This is because science is always conservative in comparison to the truth. This is why science can so often be the ultimate fake news, as an extension of our own arrogance. You wouldn't think, would you? I just can't wait to see what happens when science brings us a world ruled by AI robots).

Back to the post... So, let me tell you about this movie, first. At first, I thought it was a documentary. But it was getting shots way too contrived or intimate for a documentary. And there was not a single person inadvertently looking at the camera, giggling, or such. Then, I started thinking that it was a movie movie. But it was WAY too real for that! So, this is what they call a, "docudrama," but I am telling you, it is more than that, somehow.

In a distant Mongolian village, a camel gives birth to a colt, (I think they called it). Apparently because of the highly difficult birthing process, the mother rejected the child. It was so sad to see the baby crying, on and on, for milk and for its mother. No matter what the 'shepherds' did, they could not get the mother to accept the baby. It was heart-wrenching.

First, they brought in some Buddhist lamas, (not llamas), to do some religious tricks, which didn't work. Then the brought in a "violin" player to do an ancient Mongolian ritual. Really one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I will leave it to you to find out the rest. (But I will let you know, the weeping camel is NOT the baby).

The Mongolian yurts, the manners, the love of nature, the wonder, the isolation, the religious rituals - these things all reminded me of Native Americans who, of course, largely eminated from that area of the world. It is SO interesting to me how these cultures blend into Hinduism and Buddhism, which are but paintings over more ancient, shared ways.

Inside the amazing yurts were worlds of wonderful, bright colours, like you might see in old Buddhist paintings - or - in Native American dressings, such: - Well, I had a pic of really colourful Indian garb somewhere, but I cannot find it. So, here's something almost as good:


(Sacred Plant Healing: Shamanic Medicine & the New Science - originally from: "New Dawn").

How yurts are like teepees and wikiups:


Winnebago / Ho-Chunk - "People of the Sea"

It is also fascinating how Algonquin dwellings resemble dwellings from North Atlantic isles. There's a post related to this coming up, yay. OK - I guess this post is done. I know of at least two Native American friends on my list, who are active. If you are another, let me know! Here is my tag for Native Americans. (And THIS and THIS).

I understand that Bernie Sanders sometimes rails against Donald Trump, at times when he sees it is necessary. And, I understand that a lot of Trump's supporters are racists, although, not so many as NPR may lead one to believe. But I still see that both of these men are different sides of the same coin of populism. When you look at it, Bernie is often a nationalist, although one would never therefore call him a, "white nationalist," as most people call Trump. When you look at Trump, you see a drive to renew the countries' infrastructure; to curtail unfair trade; to draw in the reigns of warfare; etc., JUST LIKE BERNIE.

Granted, there are differences here. But, I am looking at the bigger picture, of what the people say they need. I am trying not to look at the divide-and-conquer, partisan picture of what the elites try to make us squabble over, etc. When we settle down, it can be seen that, in many, BUT CERTAINLY NOT ALL, cases, both Bernie and Trump are looking for the same things. However, you are NEVER going to see this reported in the news, or from either partisan national committee.

Here is an example of such coincidence between Trump and Bernie. We never heard a lot of this side of Trump's speech. But, it looks like both he and Sanders want a reevaluation of U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia.

Trump has been dealing with a LOT of pressure from the GOP, and from the (Clinton-Bush) elites, which, along with his own stupidity, has made him declare some pretty horrendous things. I am all over that, in my journal. However, I do see him sometimes pushing back towards a more centrist, sensible attitude - because he is a businessman. I have always suspected that this sort of thing would happen.

You wouldn't know it from the news, but there are a few similarities to be seen in recent foreign policy speeches of both Trump and Sanders...

Once again, irony shows itself as inherent in nature, especially when the mind goes into reptilian mode, or war...

Oklahoma City police who shot man 'did not hear' witnesses yelling he was deaf

This sad irony, (which reminds us of many more, yes?), also shows that not all police abuse is against blacks, real racism not withstanding. As I have been documenting for years, police abuse has been rising against the poor, the elderly, the handicapped, the transgendered, Native Americans, whites - dogs! - as well as against blacks. But, as our blood boils, we tend to separate everything into black versus white, as we careen down our own tunnel vision, missing the qualifying voices.

This guy, shot, was Hispanic. (Would that qualify as Native American? There are many Cherokee in Oklahoma, often sporting the same cultural norms as white society). The guy who shot Trayvon Martin was also Hispanic, yet he was considered to be white. It is all a big mess, with lots of causes and crimes to consider. But, maybe I'll discuss all that again in some other post. See my tag. I also have some tags regarding police abuse of particular minorities.

It's a major crisis that we all need to come together about. Yep.



Proof that Neandertal was as, or perhaps, more intelligent or creative than us. Neanderthal brains 'grew more slowly' This supports the idea that they were a highly social, familial species, inclined towards abstract rationalisations such as morality, justice and or religion, just like the elephants, yo. And they probably skirted away into caves and tunnels, just to get away from Homo Wise Guy, just like Big Foot does today, especially in New York. For more about Neandertal, see more about Neandertal.

Photographer Jonas Bendiksen documented men who believe they are second coming of Christ.

In his new book, 'The Last Testament', photographer Jonas Bendiksen documented men who believe they are second coming of Christ. Over the course of two years, he travelled around the world to meet seven different men who publicly claim they are the son of God returned to earth. He tells Dan Damon about his personal project to find out about these modern Messiahs and their followers.

Sometimes, there are things that I wish the news people would never report. For fear of spreading copy-cat crimes. Until now, most Americans still thought of an, "acid attack," as indigestion. I wonder if hydrochloric acid will be better for our economy than Pepto Bismal.

Washington Post: U.S. to ban use of Kaspersky software in federal agencies amid concerns of Russian espionage

That's the same newspaper that broke so many UNSOURCED "leaks" about the Russians-are-coming insanity. That's basically the main (fake news) source of the hearings, which have two purposes: to foil Trump; and to create an easy enemy, as an alternative to Saudi Arabia + Israel. If we are going to ban Kaspersky, why don't we ban every OTHER software that the USA infiltrates in its spying of everyone on the planet? Removing Kasperky wouldn't solve anything even if Russia WERE infiltrating government computers. Russians are smarter than that. They play chess. And live on turnips, and vodka. All they really want to do is get drunk, and put out great internet security products, oh, LIKE THESE!>>>

What do you suppose this whole kerfuffle has to do with the rogue USA government finding it impossible to infiltrate its own computers, so long as they are being protected by Kaspersky software?! Seriously. That's always how it goes down. Nothing comes out of WDC which isn't fake news.

Do you still have your eclipse glasses? Go out and look at the sun again! There is a big visible cluster of sun spots lurking there. A tiny blotch suggesting that our great god has sinned - or is bleeding from our errant ways. I think that's the scientific term. Associated with these spots was a large solar CME, which explains why I have been so sick lately - or, it added to it, (I have found through bodilly experimentation). This CME should be hitting our planet in a day or two, warping the ionosphere and radio waves. It's a pity this CME couldn't have happened during the eclipse and damned us all.

Speaking of which: I gazed nakedly upon the sun yesterday, around 6pm, long before it was even setting. With mine naked eyes, I tell you. It was sitting up there, all alone in the sky, big and round - and a bright orange-red, in a misted sky, kinda like that red rubber ball at the top of your LJ page, telling you how many messages you have received, during this, the end of the world. I did see a little blotch on the sun, near the bottom. Hopefully, I can check again today, wearing glasses.

I have never seen the sun look so weird in all my life, except when it was down on the horizon with red-sunset clouds all around it. But, yesterday, it was up there in the sky, with nary a cloud about. I really did consider that something major might have been going on with the sun, per se, and maybe it was itchin' to explode, good god. But, then I decided that the skies were full of smoke from the fires in California, and so on. The particulates were bending the light, not so much into a sailor's delight, but into an omen of some impending, big bright orange-red planetary nuclear war, of course.

Sillier things have happened.

Here is a great website for dog people, which I wish I had found a long time ago. But, I do feed my dog great food, amyway. For my dry mix, I use 1/2 cheap food, not grain-free, but good, and mostly rice and meat. So, there was a sale going on for a 50-pound bag of Country Squire Premium dry dog food for like $17. I checked it on this site and absolutely decided against buying it. This site really does its job.

DOGFOODADVISER

And, here are two lists which I will print out when I get to the library, so I can carry them with me when I descend into the bowels of the big box stores...

Best Dry
Best Grain-Free Dry

(Of course, the GOOD stuff I buy my dog are all on these lists).

I am all busied up today. I must work out the logistics of buying stuff. It might involve another super-long walk. It's complicated because this store always runs its sales on weekends when buses are not available. Welcome to Stupidtown.

Just to remind folks: A great way to buy good dog food is via Chewy's.

Note: I heard a repeat of Floyd Abrams' advocacy of Citizens United, (&c.). And, once again, I am compelled to post on it, because his arguments are not as logical as the host sheepishly submits to them being. Mostly, they are fallacious, and I really must get around to posting on this when I can.

Cognitive fatigue after TBI linked with activation of caudate


https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/09/170901125136.htm

Researchers  have further elucidated the mechanisms for cognitive fatigue, a  disabling symptom that affects many individuals after traumatic brain  injury (TBI). ...


Here they come again. The bees who need to disappear into your Coke can. September Bees. Just when you thought it was safe to go outside. As foretold, outside today, a bee started messing with my head. Then, after that, a human started doing the same thing. I'm serious. It was the dufus who dresses like a pumpkin.

And it is sad because Bee Girl is no more.

A girlfriend used to call me, "B."

Last night, World Cafe did an astonishing mix, which followed, "Red Rain," with that National's song about a swarm of bees. Perfect. But I don't think the show exactly followed this playlist, (hour two 8/28 - can be streamed). Apparently, David DiE! is still working his magic behind the curtain.

But I think Michaela Majeune will always be the real spiritual and creative force behind the show. It's been a few years since they even aired any interview from her. But she had the Madison morning show which inspired, "World Cafe." I talked to her once, and it was like I was a rock star, lol. PS - Talia Shlanger(sp) is great but sometimes almost too loose or rough. The other day she did an interview with Dan Wilson and I think they are great together / should get a room.

I have a million links about bees - just another topic I have yet to theme-post about, (although see my tag). A recent news story came out saying that both unsocial bees and autistics share similar disruptions in certain genes: Thus sociability may be a fundamental trait deeply shared by all (social) species. That is AMAZING research!

But, nobody seemed to ask whether there (also) might not be a common environmental trigger, (altering the genetics), causing both bees and autistics to be unsocial. Something like, say, BT, GMO's, nicotinoids and/or Round-UP (glyphosate) mega-herbacide?! - all of which may be summed up in one word: MONSANTO?!

Let's wait until radiation causes us all to have two heads so we can find out what genes control head count.

I think way back when I first heard the word, "autism," I thought it meant, "oughtism," or the school of thought, preaching, "You ought to do this!" and, "You ought to do that!"

Ahhhh! Leave me bee!
