While I was talking to the guy about the car, my dog ran into the room and jumped 6-7 feet up to catch a fly, and he caught it.
The last post may make you think I dislike Christians. Wrong. Enough on that subject. Now, here is my atonement: A link to a Christian brain lady who says you can change your mind in only 21 days. She uses the symbolisms of Christianity, but most of what she says is pretty real. About being more positive. And, even though a car accident that split my head when I was 4 has made my whole life a complete disaster, I can still change it. What I have to do is talk to myself, requiring the frontal part of my brain, um,which I unfortunately am COMPLETELY INCAPABLE OF ACCESSING most of the time during relapses.
Anyway, she supports being more positive, and so do I. But, being positive isn't the only thing that matters in life, and if you think it does, you may try to become a rampaging vampire to support your right to be positive, and so become the corpotronic zomboid cult member of the mega-corp's "eat-the-world" club, and that way lies Armageddon. Or global warming - whatever floats your boat. (I am wicked witty sometimes)....

This could easilly lead into a major post about my theories on zombies, esp. after hearing Hal Spark's giving HIS thoughts about zombies this morning, but that is not what we're here for. We, on Earth, are here to tickle each other's nasties.
After resting from relapse, I went madly deaf in one ear, intense ringing, and then all better - things improved. Because brainstem was increasing relative strength of Acetyl-Choline, now increasing proper blood pressure. I came to this conclusion from naturalistic observation; study of Gulf War Illness, and study of the brain, and from Dr. Jay Goldstein's "Gating Hypothesis" on CFS. And I used to clamour for ACh-increasing drugs to my good-as-deaf Doctors. Cuz I was just a common idiot.
Well, ONLY NOW has a study shown that ear-ringing, i.e., TINNITUS, is not an ear problem, but a brain(-stem) problem. I feel like I am talking into the asshole at the centre of the galaxy sometimes. I could have told ANYONE WHO WOUL LISTEN the same thing, and they would only scoff at me when I advised them to eat lots of sardines for the Tinnitus. They might say something like, "Sardines are for cats and Lebanese people. And who the hell is Tinnitus?!"
Lucretius was a famous Roman poet and philosopher, who inspired Einstein and Ghandi and MLK and others. Well, that means he PROLLY also influenced Thoreau and the Transcendentalists - (I must look into that). He spoke of EVERYTHING IS MADE OF ATOMS, AND WE DON'T NEED A GOD TO EXPLAIN ANY OF THIS, AND THE POINT OF LIFE IS NOT SUFFERING OR INDENTURED MORALISM AND ATONEMENT AND SELF-MASTICATION - BUT PLEASURE AND POSITIVITY. LUCRETIUS MC-EVIL WAS A FRICKIN ATHEIST AND HE WAS SAING THE SAME THING THAT CHRISTIAN BRAIN-LADY IS SAYING. JUST DON'T TAKE THIS POSITIVITY TOO FAR, FOLKS, INTO KAMIKAZEE CULT STATUS, PUH-LEEZE!!!
Lucretius was in the news lately... Surprisingly, not for prophesying anything.

(I wanted to squeeze in stuff about past lives as retained gunk; micro-RNA from plants altering our gene expressions, preventing eart disease, how we are connected to the magic of nature, but NOooooooooooooooooo! So maybe WE'RE NOooooooooot!!!!!!!!)
Finally, the Native Americans used natural landmarks, natural events, and dead-reckoning, to guide themselves through the woods. Sometimes they made their own signs. Maybe they used drums or smoke signals. Well, some people use Christian symbolism. Some people may one day claim that the Sun is giving them signs through CROP CIRCLES, ha ha. And atheists and scientists may look to atoms and medicine and House MD, but it's all the same to me, UNTIL THEY START USING THEIR SIGNS TO TRY TO CONTROL OR HURT OTHER PEOPLE. That's when I get really mad and rip off my Superman shirt and thrust my bubbly boobies in their faces.

We were born into the universe to do two things: Fulfill our role in the cosmic scheme, and to destroy ourselves with lots and lots of alcohol.
