ALMOST FRIENDS-ONLY

Posted on 2025.10.31 at 15:54
This journal is ALMOST FRIENDS-ONLY!

See, here, now!

Yesterday, (Friday), while I was out front with the dog, a giant bumble bee stumbled around, low in the grass.  Something was killing it.  And, this was a sign to me, because everything is connected.  Because, today, came this news story: A bumble bee species is recommended to go onto the Endangered Species list. -

Wake Up Call — Bumble Bee Just Proposed for U.S. Endangered Species Status

As you know, humble honey bees, and others, have also been in decline - in fact, a collapse. You know of, "colony collapse disorder." The bees become intoxicated and disoriented, and cannot find their way back to their hive, so they suffer, starve, and/or dehydrate, and die. This species collapse is concurrent with a tragic illness hitting bats, showing a white mold on their noses, causing a comparable disorientation.

If all the actors in Hollywood started dying, there would be a big to-do, yes? If all the politicians started dying in WDC, you can bet there would be action. But, what about all the bees? What about the bats? Bees are essential to the successful growth of a huge proportion of our our food. Bats are efficient "insecticides" - and could even be used to fight Zika. They also provide deeply rich fertilizer. And what about the butterflies? Or the Star-fish? Or the Sea Turtles? Or the Great Apes?

We all know that tea - especially green tea - is a great food for health.  Green tea has been found to fight cancer.  (cancernaturally). But, what about the quality of your tea - could it be defeating the purpose, by containing lots of pesticides?! Probably!

Is Your Tea Full of Pesticides? - Here is a list of organic brands to consider

91 percent of Celestial Seasonings' 'all natural' teas found to have dangerous levels of pesticides

That's not so encouraging, considering that bee populations, e.g., are collapsing due to pesticides. I hate to tell you this, but spices often have a lot of pesticides as well. (That's partly a consequence of our accepting "free trade" deals like NAFTA... and TPP). However, you do what you can. Hopefully, doing a variety of healthy foods will help to counter-act the profusion of toxic chemicals... At least until the badly-needed food safety revolution. So - here are two spices, (etc.), which are good for your health - especially good at fighting cancer:

If  you look closely
                       you will not find a thing.

                                                                     Yet existence and emptiness

This is bobby33's latest posting at daily_tao. More than other religions, Taoism gets the paradoxical nature of nature, of paradox. Many years ago, I came up with a concept which I have since found to run through allness - a silly concept which one friend disgarded as mere semantics. Well, who came up with the whole religion thing anyway, the people of the Word, of the Book - the Semantics, right? So...

My concept is called, "The Double Paradox." It can look at an entity within a universe, regarding them as entity A and entity B, (as an example).  (Or, it could be the example of existence vis-a-vis emptiness, as above).

A and B exist in relationship. Yet A does not exist. Only B exists. Yet B does not exist. Only A exists. In fact, neither one of them exist. If they are the same, then they are all, and all has nothing, no time, within which to exist, so neither exist.

As I've always said, if God is so great, then he contains - he can tolerate - his own non-existence. The only difference I have with the Taoist truth above is that it falls short of saying that neither exists, yet that both exist together - as one - and so none.

These things have been born out by quantum theory and experimentation.  It gets us to the paradox of entangled communication faster than light.  One day, it might be the basis of a new theory of physics.  A big toe.

I wanted to go to some yard sales today, but people here shut them down by 2:pm on Saturdays, and don't hold them on Sundays.  That's really dumb because people like to shop after they recover from hangovers, too.  That's a large segment of the population, at least by weight.  I only found one that would work today, and left for it about 2:30pm.  It was nowhere to be seen.  That's another thing that happens in this town.  And it was for some Society for the Mentally Ill.  So, I just continued walking downtown, glad to be out of the crazy house.  I bought a bottle of Aussie wine, then went to the library.  I briefly got on a library computer, and checked the listing of movies playing at the downtown theatre.  I decided I would go and see the movie, "Snowden", (see my post below).  But first, I checked out three DVD movies form the library, all of which were impressive.  History, mainly.  And, one was Nicole Kidman, in, "Australia"!  Awesome.

I walked to the theatre, where they sold tickets at the inside concession place(!).  A very impressive place, showing great movies.  6 theatres inside.  Seats uncomfortable.  Luckilly, I was still wearing my "earplugs", because the sound could get pretty loud.  There were four old people sitting nearby, and then just me, and that's all.  The old people kept having to leave for the bathroom - which, btw, the bathrooms are great.

The movie was great.  I urge you to see it, maybe to get a feel for where my soul is coming from.  Snowden said that his main influences were: Joseph Campbell, Thoreau, and Ayn Rand.  Thoreau must have been some thing he only discovered "lately", because I can't see how such a staunch conservative could have revered Thoreau as such.  Plus, he had an early, playful spat with his liberal girlfriend, where he mocked her QUESTIONING the government - NO ONE who had read and loved Thoreau would ever have felt that way!  (Of course, this may have been poetic license).  Ayn Rand, yes.  Well, it was Thoreau who wrote the Essey on CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, so germane to the theme.  Thoreau was THE major influence in my life, as it was to Ghandi, MLK, and others.  I just think it's great 6that, at some point, Snowden honoured my hero, Thoreau.  Ayn Rand - well, yes, I've been influence by that too, the Skeptical Inquirers, Reason, etc., even though I do fault LIBERTARIANISM for so many harms it is doing.  Honing on the difference between these two authors, when it comes to independence of spirit and will, etc., is really a maturing and wisening process.

So, yes - wonderful movie.  The female lead was an excellent actor/actress.  (There have been so many amazing female actors I have seen lately).  I have a movie post coming up.  I liked how the movie started quick.  I liked the intelligence and techno-facts, but which did not confuzzle my noggin.  I loved being taken back to when the Guardian broke the leaks and story, and the fight behind it all.  I remember doing what I could to be behind it.  I remember the BS politics - and B.S. Obama.  I loved how Oliver Stone threw in 2-3 snippets at the end, where Hillary Clinton was sniping at Snowden, who by now was being revealed as an honourable, noble, AMERICAN HERO.  Interestingly, he also included one snippet from TRUMP, who was idiotically suggesting that Snowden be beheaded, or something.  (Oliver Stone is the father of Roger Stone, a primary influence and spokesman for Trump).

The movie really explodes with great feeling, when Snowden finally breaks with the NSA, and downloads the files for the London Guardian.  This is what I paid for - and it made me cry.  And do you know what couldn't have been any better?  Near the very end, not Hillary, not Trump or Obama - BUT BERNIE SANDERS, added a quote about how important Snowden has been to history and our country.  (Needless to say, Sanders has sold out by necessity, since his life was threatened by the DNC, as I predicted, which makes me squirm).

Things appear to change, but they don't.  The so-called, "Freedom Act," and review of the FISA courts, and other Obama-era gratitudes are just platitudes.  What they tell us is not what is real.  That is what is not changing.  The moral.  The spirit.  The heartbeat.

No, we continue on with a Dick Cheney heart, because secrecy is victory, and the battle is EVERYWHERE.

Who and what will stand against this tyranny of the soul?  We have examples.   We are examples.

PS - For new and/or vicarious viewers: Please note that I CRY about these issues, because THEY ARE SO IMPORTANT.  You can READ MORE, about Snowden, Assange, Manning, and more, at my site, http://www.madman101.livejournal.com/.  Remember that ontd_political DID NOT POST MY POST ABOUT THIS.  BREAK FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT FOR GOOD!  pLEASE LET US ALL START SOMETHING MORE!

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange prepares to speak from the balcony [Feb.5?] of the Ecuadorian embassy, where he's lived since 2012.

Court won't drop Julian Assange rape investigation

CBS: STOCKHOLM -- A Swedish appeals court on Friday upheld a detention order for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, dismissing the latest attempt by the 45-year-old Australian to make prosecutors drop a rape investigation from 2010.

The decision by the Svea Court of Appeal means that the arrest warrant stands for the 45-year-old computer hacker, who has avoided extradition to Sweden by seeking shelter at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012.

Assange, who denies the rape allegation, has challenged the detention order several times. He says he fears he will be extradited to the United States to face espionage charges if he leaves the embassy.

His Swedish defense lawyer, Per Samuelson, said he would appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.

PROMOTE A FRIEND! - http://promote-friends.livejournal.com/profile

GET SOME ACTION GOING AND WE CAN PROMO IT.

I have had a grueling day, in addition to the crazy man downstairs stomping about as hard as he could, after any time I would do anything.  I managed to sneak in a little sleep a few hours ago, and am finally pulling out.  But, just like Hillary Clinton, he never gives up - which, I thought, IS THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY.  So, I have been unable to get around even to this simple post, not to mention the others that I have been planning.

I am beginning to despise how dumbed-down NPR's news and News programmes has become.  Announcing this evening's news: "Arizona becomes a swing-state this year..."  And hey switch to some female underlining this point: "I live in this state, and now it's like EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT ARIZONA, and I'm like, oh wow!"  Um, yes, that is so newsworthy.  What do you bet we hear more from John McCain?

OK - so, let me see if I can bring my memory to reassemble the concept of this post...  I heard an hour NPR programme about how cats can be trained, etc.  It is actually possible to train cats, so long as the reward which you give them comes IMMEDIATELY AFTER their action which you are rewarding.* The madness continues...Réduire )

And I am now too beleaguered to finish this, so stay tuned for part two.

The subject of psychopaths is related to so much - so look forward to related posts!

Study: 1 in 5 CEOs are psychopaths; same rate as among prisoners:

An Australian study has found that about one in five corporate executives are psychopaths – roughly the same rate as among prisoners.

The study of 261 senior professionals in the United States found that 21 per cent had clinically significant levels of psychopathic traits. The rate of psychopathy in the general population is about one in a hundred.

Nathan Brooks, a forensic psychologist who conducted the study, said the findings suggested that businesses should improve their recruitment screening.

He said recruiters tend to focus on skills rather than personality features and this has led to firms hiring “successful psychopaths” who may engage in unethical and illegal practices or have a toxic impact on colleagues.

“Typically psychopaths create a lot of chaos and generally tend to play people off against each other,” he said.

“For psychopaths, it (corporate success) is a game and they don’t mind if they violate morals. It is about getting where they want in the company and having dominance over others.”

The global financial crisis in 2008 has prompted researchers to study workplace traits that may have allowed a corporate culture in which unethical behaviour was able to flourish.

The 15th Amendment: All people are born equal: black or white, X or Y chromosome, straight or gay -  or having a brain born transsexual - or other.

Birth Equality.

Equal Protection.

CORPORATIONs are not BORN.  They have no substance or individual mind.  They are CONCEPTS legally chartered by the citizens of separate STATES, as these United States have been chartered by the people, represented by the Founding Fathers, and those who fought English landlords and corporate profitteers.  This country was ESTABLISHED in opposition to the power of corporations.  To allow corporations equality of speech or rights, is to LIE, because MONEY is access to POWER, and to inherent dysequality, lording over others, including true people.  To grant any of these inalienable, BIRTH rights, to corporations is to institutionalise the rape and slavery of all true citizens. 

All of these issues and questions and fights over the power of black versus white, or female versus male, of religion versus religion, mainly follows from the TAKING of illicit power by corporations or governments and tyrants.  It is the playing off of group against group which these false gods use to divert anger and attention, and keep themselves in power.

To fall for this game of group-against-group, eye-for-an-eye, might-makes-right infighting, terrorism and war, is not only to legitimise this illicit TAKING by corporations, et al, but it is indeed to HAND OVER LIBERTY TO THEM BY CHOICE. 

In that, one denies his or her own human birth, and birth-right. 

In that, one hands over free will to the DICTATORSHIP OF MONEY, becoming, first, slaves, and, finally, fodder, and fertiliser.

Teach your children well.

Julian Assange Confirms Sanders Was Threatened

Original newz story - Click here

Julian Assange has confirmed that Bernie Sanders was threatened into pulling out of the Democratic race in July.

During a recent interview with Australian journalist John Pilger, Assange said that Bernie Sanders was forced to drop out of the race due to threats from the Clinton campaign.

Assange’s admission appears to substantiate claims by the Kremlin who revealed they had evidence that Jane Sanders was physically threatened in order to “get Bernie on board” with Hillary’s campaign.

Trueactivist.com reports:

Pilger, who is working on a documentary about Assange, asked:

“Julian, we cut you off earlier when you were talking about what you felt were the most significant emails that you have released. Is there any last one that you’d like to mention? And also, do you have any thoughts on Bernie Sanders? I mean what is your opinion why Bernie Sanders drop out of the race?”

Assange responded:

“Look, I think—you know, we know how politics works in the United States. Whoever—whatever political party gets into government is going to merge with the bureaucracy pretty damn fast. It will be in a position where it has some levers in its hand. And Bernie Sanders was independent candidate trying to get the nomination trough the Democratic Party and if you ask me he did get the nomination, but he was threatened to drop out.”

Again, Assange has promised to release incriminating emails which are sure to result in Clinton’s indictment. He says he has evidence that Hillary made deals with an alleged Islamic state sponsor, as well as damning information about the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton campaign knows he’s on to her, too, which is why a strategist called for an assassination of Assange on TV.

“Of course, we’re very interested in revealing the truth about any candidate and yes we have some material about Bernie Sanders that will be published,” Assange added.

After having the balls to get herself arrested for aggressively protesting the building of an oil pipeline across Native American sacred lands (in violation of INTERNATIONAL LAW), Jill Stein next dares to call for the release of THE TRUTH on 9/11...

Jill Stein calls for new 9/11 investigation



Green Party candidate Jill Stein on Friday called for a new inquiry into the 9/11 terror attacks, saying that the commission that conducted the initial investigation was stonewalled by the Bush administration.

“Led by the families of those who died on 9/11, the American people wanted — and deserved — a comprehensive and independent inquiry into the attacks,” Stein said in a statement, according to MSNBC.

Oh boy, Jill Stein demands "Full Story of 9/11." pic.twitter.com/v8RVtvzPrd
— Alex Seitz-Wald (@aseitzwald) September 9, 2016

“The Bush Administration initially said an inquiry was unnecessary, claiming that the perpetrators had been identified and their methods and motives were clear.”

Stein described the 9/11 Commission report as containing many “omissions and distortions.”

“The 9/11 Commission was not given enough money, time, or access to relevant classified information,” Stein said. “The Stein/Baraka campaign believes a new inquiry is necessary.”

Dear Diaretic Readers, I wish to elucidate my somewhat long-time infatuation with Florence Nightingale. I do believe that all subsequent women progressives followed from her example - and that includes Jane Addams and Dorothy Day. I think all of them should be "SAINTS", by now, except they were not lucky enough to be born into the Catholic Club, just as most of the world has not been lucky enough to be born into the rich white male sperm club, a la, George Bush or Donald Trump. (There has been a lot of Catholic controversy over Dorothy Day, btw). I wish to lobby the Pope, for the establishment, in myth, of one certain, "Saint Nightingale". Like many progressive movers and shakers, Florence Nightingale emerged from an aristocratic family, but diverted her life towards service for the poor and the suffering. Please see the movie I have referenced! And you shall cry, if you truly are my friend. A little after the time of Thoreau, my all-time main hero, Florence, or as I call her, Flo-you-beeyotch, was a prolific writer, who helped POPULARISE science, medicine, the new concept of nursing, etc., etc. And! She popularised STATISTICS in her writings. Now, I suck at math, big time. But I have always had a love of statistics. Most new readers do not understand my writings - they do not see that behind my "opinions" is a whole universe of statistical SENSE. I really do weigh my hypotheses by their statistical probability, in a honed, learnt, informal way. Granted, I do assert that some things do go BEYOND CONVENTIONAL STATS. But I really do love stats!

But there is another connection I do share with Florence Nightingale. As a consequence of her very strained work during the Crimean War, et al, amongst the impoverished and outcast, in squalid conditions, under the moralising eye of her family and their caste, Florence Nightingale became ill for the rest of her life, with something which probably was CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME. Every May 12, her birthday, we stricken "PWC's" advertise INTERNATIONAL CFIDS AWARENESS DAY. Not for nothing, I, myself, created a non-profit business, referencing the name of Florence Nightingale. Unfortunately, most people were highly suspicious of a white male, and his invisible so-called-disease, and JUST WHAT WAS HE UP TO ANYWAY. No. To them. It was impossible that I could care. And, guess what? No help from my Catholic Family. Now. If Nightingale had been a SAINT, well... Or, maybe if she had had autism. Or Alzheimers. No. I don't think they ever learn. BUT. They do join up with Habitat for Humanity at the same damn time they know I am fucking homeless, god bless them. Ever see those pictures of Popes and Kings, and all such divine innocents? They are always pointing to themselves. Let's call this what it is. Sluggish, selfish, ambi-moral MASS-NARCISSISM. I think that this is a little different to what I am describing about Florence Nightingale, YES?

And I inform my family of the restrictions of my illness, and they nevertheless respond with predictable CENSORSHIP. But. More on that later. (It is pathetic. No matter what I do, inevitably, through inbred gossip, they forever come to the conclusion that I am unworthy of their condescension. It's a catholic gaggle of narcissists. Guess what, fools, YOU TRY THIS. You try being afflicted by CFS, and its associated social stigma, and its poverty, and the government bureaucrats, and the endless limitations. In a humane world, not just the break-throughs like Stephen Hawking, but ALL disabled SHOULD BE LIVING LIKE KINGS. And making decisions like presidents, instead of these money whores.

I'll never be a saint, because I veritably call out the demons. No. There needs to be some new religion to make saints of people like me.

I believe that Florence Nightingale was a faithful religious devotee. Uh - omg - she actually took her religion seriously. She took her only, singular life, and devoted it to people less fortunate than herself. Despite the assholery of so many of the poor. As I recall, your CHRIST Jesus did the same damnable thing. And society scoffed and called it, "The easy way!" So, they killed him to save our souls. Which is an institutionalisation of one odd fact about weird society: Down is up and up is down.

But, that's OK, if people keep worshipping the narcissist elite, and their puppet professional class. We are all so ME!

Last year, I was working on a mega-theme-post on selfless progressives, like Florence Nightingale. A nurse I was related to had died at the same time, oddly. I was also acquiring notes about the genesis of ISIS. And - I was posting very anti-Hillary posts on LJ. Suddenly, my internet got really weird, and then my laptop was destroyed - along with its hard-drive. In case you don't know, it is technologically possible for hackers to do such a thing. AND - I have been fairly convinced that "the government" has tracked and messed with me before. So. Let me say something about Hillary Clinton. If Florence Nightingale were to be called, "Christ", then Hillary Clinton would be ANTICHRIST. She should go back to calling herself what she continues to be, A Goldwater Republican, but with all the trappings of global, mega-corporate MONEY. If you squirm at how much I despise her, then, please remember how much I revere Florence Nightingale, and spare me more of that "sexism" crap.

Progressive my ass.

The institutionalisation of flip-flops

In Australia, flip-flops are called, "thongs".  Like those scanty bits of underwear we all like to wear on our heads.  You may look at Australians, and wonder why they call flip-flops, "thongs".  But I look at America, and think, "This is a crazy country.  They say, 'flip-flops', when they mean, 'thongs'!  JFC - It takes about three times longer to make your mouth say, 'flip-flops'!" Take the political plunge!Réduire )

Mother Teresa has been an irksome enigma to me and others. She was someone I wanted to extoll, but she had this reputation of rubbing elbows with scurrilous billionaires, and such. I'm sure she wanted to walk among both rich and poor, because all are equal here on Earth, if not in heaven. Like, I did not want to judge her as one might carelessly want to judge Mary Magdalen, supposedly a prostitute, or Jesus, a bicycle repair man.

That is why I, while keeping an open mind, kept her under study, when I could. And there were things which I learnt which indeed counted against her. I do believe that people may be capable of 'psychic' abilities, sometimes associated with empathy. But as far as her deserving Sainthood, I thought that she did not meet my standards, though her dazzle would probably make her eligible to the Catholic Church, at some point.

Along comes my favourite Pope ever, and he most certainly makes her a saint, based on two or more "miracles" which fall into the domain of conventional paranormal anomalies. Too bad there are SO MANY other people engaged in psychic powers, who will never attain sainthood because they never became famous, OR were never Catholics. I am not sure if any NON-CATHOLICS were ever made saints, but this will happen, controversially, one day, as it has been proclaimed that NON-CATHOLICS were capable of having their souls saved. I don't know about getting my soul saved, but I do know that my soul has gotten soiled, and I would be happy if it could just go through the wash. It has already been through the wringer.

Let me say that I approve of the Pope's beatification, for symbolic reasons. I don't agree with the whole idea of special sainthood, bolstering a religious institution and lazy personal responsibility. But, since the Church is going to do this anyway, I am GLAD that a person was chosen who's life appeared to be strongly devoted to the indigent and marginalised.

Well, I have recently heard that Mother Teresa somehow knew that, e.g., there was a flare-up in Bosnia, despite her never listening to the news, etc. Her little bird told her that she must go there, without special arrangements. She believed that a cease-fire would be called, allowing her and her cadre into the country, for their humanitarian work. This is what happened.

How did she know that, if so? Well, I know that one can never trust reports around legends - they balloon and snowball like gossip; they can be manufactured by opportunistic interests, etc. But, if this DID happen, it could have happened through shady avenues. For example, one of her nefarious billionaire patrons might have clued her in, and made the cease-fire arrangements. This is the sort of thing a George Soros would have done, with a more devious agenda, than a puppet nun. But I do not know, either way. I do know that such a thing IS possible, psychically.

That is why I do suspend judgment on this, and allow for the opportunity that the goodness and "sainthood" of Mother Teresa may be true and well-deserved. Or - it may not. After all, that is the way of Nature, to give over to each of us individuals the responsibility to collapse ambiguity, according to our own devinations. This is part of the universal process of emerging order from chaos.

Similarly, the TV networks always love to play political campaigns so that they end up being a tight, 50/50 horse-race, which garners them more money - but more on that phenomenon later...

OK - I said all this merely as a lead up to a wee jot of a note on Florence Nightingale. I will be posting an LJ entry soon about movies I have seen lately. One of them was a movie called, "Florence Nightingale," which I thought was made in this millennium - but it was a 1985 TV movie. Very powerful. Made me cry more than any other movie, as it touched on things which I strongly believe. If you like Mother Teresa, you will love this movie. Florence Nightingale has long been a hero of mine.

Nice stories from Australia, by The Moth Radio Hour. (If you explore their nice site, you will find at least two more stories about monkeys). These stories - at least the first three I heard - all show pleasant but broken people. They all feel quiet Australian, but all three folks seem to get blindsided by something bad, as perhaps a result of their blinders - I don't know. Even though I've got a lot of Australia in me, I don't know what the rural society is really like, up close and personal. Could it be kind of like THE PAST, as I know it, where one's life was more naive, and filled with slightly blockheaded, dysfunctional people? All these folks are more refreshing than many Americans in some ways. And they choose their words very well. But I think about the time when so many Aussies were getting skin cancer from the disappearing Ozone layer - so they just pulled out a knife and tried to cut it off. That could be seen as naive, or it could be seen as real life survival under limitted means. I know both, in my own life. I know the judgment that can so eailly visit upon it. Like the way we ridicule Country Music.

So whatever, it is, what it is.

Only the Chimpanzee and the Bonobo are NOT on the Endangered Species List - and we all know that even these species are dwindling, especially the sexy Bonobo. All of this is from reports from TODAY. I just thought you might like to know, since we are, after all, discussing primates. Disgusting primates.

PS - I am thinking of changing the name of my current community, wiki_truth, to something that covers all whistle-blowers and altruistic hackers, plus the damage that they do to the status quo insanity. I don't like the name, "whistle-blowers." I don't like others. Like, "bird_on_a_wire", which reminds everyone of the Gibson-Hahn film, "Bird On A Wire" - (which was great, btw). Today, I thought of the simple name, "the_wire" - but there is a TV show of the same name. I think I have heard of it. Do you know this show? Is it really popular? If it is, then I can't use the name - (it might even be illegal). Please let me know!

PPS - did I mention in a recent post that I am getting a brain scan soon? I hope it doesn't mess with my mind. Otherwise, it is another reason to be cheerful.

Of course, Venus met its end in the fire of a protracted nuclear explosion, which we solely call, "The Sun". But, really, all it takes is a few atoms and a whole damn planet goes out the window without a paddle. Could this have happened to other planets in the past? Could it happen to us in the future? I proudly proclaim yes for damn sure. It possibly already happened once, and who can deny that we are slowly being roasting into carbonated black Gummy Bears? Politicians only know two things: Profit from destruction; and, Win at any cost. Therefore, the ultimate scenario is that some politician may come along and go for the ultimate WIN by destroying us all. If they do so, they shall have been blindly obeying the commands of the Sun, like frightened psychopaths, under a magnifying glass. For the Sun giveth and the Sun taketh away. Bow your heads, wee lambs, for here we now enter the only reality at our end: War, and its grubby god, Mars, sitting alone at a bar, just waiting to get laid, like the picnic table that never was, amen.Réduire )

I feel SO ALIVE! I'm a MARTIAN!

 Dear Dr. Zapomatic,

I have an appointment with you soooon.  I have been wanting to compile a summary of interesting or unique symptoms or observations, in my CFS, which might be of interest and use to you and other professionals.  However, I have as yet been unable to compile this.  In the meantime, I do have a few links which may or may not be useful to you.  I thought I would add these links to an online post for others, and so, the links of most salience for you shall be in BOLD for your convenience.  You need not investigate the other links unless you wish to.  This list will also be sent as an attachment if I can manage it w/ my email.

PS - I am hearing you on the radio constantly, with 4-5 different bits on the Zika virus!  That is an excellent way to keep me reminded of my appointment.  (Speaking of mosquitoes - ANYTHING which causes inflammation, provokes my CFS 'relapses', from mosquito bites, to a gum infection, to poison ivy(!), to colds/flu, to what feels to be brain inflammation).

I will just mention a few things about Neandertal. First, my guess is that N. was hairier than he is portrayed. And, N. probably looked more stylish than the guy in the picture, because they probably had combs, barbers, and possibly even plastic surgeons. Next, the dates on these things are always blurry, confused, and likely to be corrected later. Thus, Sapiens and Neandertal probably mated at times OTHER than around 50,000 years ago. I believe we are said to have branched off from them about 200,000 years ago - yet there may have been a little whoopy going on around 100,000 years ago. This means that we must keep our minds open to the possibility that there may have been some mating going on before N. lost his Y chromosome. Or, we might hold out the possibility that the divergence occurred precisely when the Y. chromosome was lost. I believe the final age of intercourse may have been as late as 30,000 - or even later, especially since we were already passing N. genes after that - so it is a continuum in the latter sense. Finally, one reason why N. is said to have had compassion is that there is evidence that N. raised a disabled child until the child died at age 3. The child had microcephaly. This is curious, in light of recent news re: Zika. Of course, various things can cause microcephaly. But I wonder about the possibility of some connection between Zika and Neandertal. Perhaps, e.g., Europeans are either more, or less, susceptible to it today, because of some inheritted Neandertal gene. This journal is where hypotheses come to die - while many more pile on.

Oh - It is said that our speech did not begin until 50,000 years ago, which I think is total nonsense. And, it has been said that Neandertals could not speak, or at least could not speak well (because of their structure). However, the article linked above reveals that "speech genes" were carried by Neandertal. I assume they were not inheritted from us, thus taking the beginning of speech back to at least around 200,000 years ago.

Today, I was hoping to take a long walk to an outdoor concert/fest.  This is a rare thing, and the music proabably wasn't all the best.  I decided I was too fatigued to try.  Too fatigued to do much at all.  Made some salmon with rice, and many other sides, topped by a clam/oyster sauce I made.  The rice was the best part.  OK - tonight, I will bring you this little post, which originates from earlier posts - adding supplimental information.  Recall my post about The American Dream?  So, I am posting a definition of that term...  "American Dream" - Now, onto Tesla, and related:

OK - that's the end of our little tour. I have follow-up stuff about Neandertals, underground cities, pyramids, UFOs, planets, etc., but most of these will be coming up in one, two or three posts, along the theme of "EXTINCTION!" Look forward to those because there is always hope. ta - mm101

Watch as GcMAF treatment kills cancer cells in real time – Holistic doctors ‘suicided’ over this stunning breakthrough
A breakthrough cancer treatment appears to be the reason why a handful of holistic doctors were recently found “suicided” is now gaining worldwide attention as a potential universal cure for cancer. And new microscopic footage released by First Immune shows this amazing remedy in action — the human protein GcMAF is visually seen activating the body’s own macrophages, which are then able to attack and destroy breast cancer cells in vitro.

The roughly two-minute video clip, which has been posted to YouTube, reveals the true healing power of GcMAF, a human protein that the body makes naturally but that some people lack or can’t produce in adequate volume.  (Read full article).
