Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

For those courageous souls brave enough to look and see what is,

who are unwilling to blindly accept

the lies and rules of tyrannical authority.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie.

One word of truth outweighs a world of lies.

-----

If perchance a post of mine you think extreme

heed this from Kahlil Gibran:

“In battling evil, excess is good;

for he who is moderate in announcing the truth is presenting half-truth.

He conceals the other half out of fear of the people’s wrath.”

-----

One of my goals is to think and act as if I fear no man’s wrath or deed.

G’day #Name#,

Hope this finds you fit and well.

Here is a sampling of what recently crossed my digital desk.

I hope you get something from it!

Have a great week!

Never Change By Fighting
 
Never Change By Fighting
 
 
 

Some time ago I listened to a fascinating lecture on resisting. What I got from it is that when you resist something you put up a barrier (spiritual, mental, energy or mass) between you and that which you are resisting.

That which you are resisting flows particles at you. Those particles hit the barrier you have created. Particles building up on one side of the barrier create a vacuum on the opposite side of the barrier.

When you resist and fail you get sucked into the vacuum and become that which you were resisting.

That is one mechanism of how people “flip“ from good to bad. They become that which they fought.

So the key is to not resist that which you do not want but to flow energy towards that which you DO want.

Which is why the most aware people will always conclude a presentation by giving you things you CAN do towards creating a more desirable future outcome.

Buckminster Fuller summarised it so well when he said: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.“

After I smiled at the humour I thought, “Pretty simple really. Just extrapolate consequences and evaluate.”

I don’t know if that is on the syllabus anywhere these days but based on the number of contenders each year for the Darwin awards, I suspect not.

And when you look at the world stage and see the consequences of the US neocons poking the Russian bear via their installed Ukraine puppet and the billions of wasted dollars and lives being destroyed you realise it is not just immature boys who cannot extrapolate consequences and evaluate the results but also criminals of all ilks.

Over time I have observed that the main news stories all seem to conform to a deep state agenda item. Of course the last three+ years have been more blatantly and observably so but even 19th century media critics wrote of it.

Tim Miles commented:

Well have you actually noticed that none of the policies enacted in the name of reducing Carbon Emissions are doing that. They are doing the precise opposite. What slight warming we have seen is due to clearing skies since much tighter rules came in†on smoke over the past 3 decades.

Here’s one to discuss. As a farmer I see it is getting colder, not warmer, hyping occasional days of hot weather doesn’t change that. A colder world is a drier world, and its one which will support a lot less people. What if Co2 has a minimal warming effect and we are as predicted 50 years ago in fact heading into an ice age.

If that were the case would you really want to tell several billion people living in Northern latitudes that they are going to starve but cannot stampede South because we cannot all suddenly cram into Southern latitudes where the soil simply hasn’t built up yet.

Ice ages both ended and started quite abruptly in contrast to what the media says. I learnt this reading papers for years in the Science Library as a student.

In 2006 a high school English teacher asked students to write a famous author and ask for advice. Kurt Vonnegut was the only one to respond - and his response is magnificent:

“Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta:

I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don’t make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.

What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.

Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you’re Count Dracula.

Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don’t do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don’t tell anybody what you’re doing. Don’t show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?

Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash recepticals. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow.

God bless you all!

Kurt Vonnegut

(Tom: If, as I have read, it is true that a criminal is a criminal because he cannot create, then getting everyone going through childhood at present to experience this would markedly change society for the better in very short order.

That is one reason I am sharing this broadly!

I hope you do too.)

 
Solar_Panels.jpg Jim Gilliland Betting y'all haven't heard this before? As more & more counties get more solar farms..... From a STEPHENVILLE resident, George Franklin: I should start by telling you what bonafides I have for writing this. I am a retired aerospace engineer. A literal rocket scientist if you will. I worked on MX (Peacekeeper) Space Shuttle, Hubble, Brilliant Pebbles, PACOSS, Space Station, MMU, B2, the Sultan of Brunei's half billion dollar private 747 with crystal showers, gold sinks and 100 dollar a yard coiffed silk carpets. I designed a satphone installation on prince Jeffry's 757. I did all of the design work for the structure of Mark 1V propulsion module currently flying on at least 3 spacecraft that I know of. Some of the more exciting projects I have worked on are not shareable. My personal projects include a spin fishing reel with a 4.5 inch spool which is entirely my own designed, machined and assembled. It has 2 features that are patentable. A unique true flat level wind and a unique line pickup mechanism. I am also am FAA certified glider pilot and FAI certified gold glider pilot. I fly both full scale and model sailplanes. I am Microsoft certified and ComTIA A+ certified. ??Solar panels are at best about 20% efficient. They convert 0% of the UV light that hits them. None of the visible spectrum and only some of the IR spectrum. At the same time as they are absorbing light they are absorbing heat from the sun. This absorbed heat is radiated into the adjacent atmosphere. It should be obvious what happens next. When air is warmed it rises. Even small differences in ordinary land surfaces are capable of creating powerful forces of weather like thunderstorms and tornadoes. These weather phenomena are initiated and reinforced by land features as they are blown downwind. It is all too obvious to me what will happen with the heat generated by an entire solar farm. Solar farms will become thunderstorm and tornado incubators and magnets. Solar panels are dark and and they emit energy to the space above them when they are not being radiated. This is known as black-body radiation. Satellites flying in space use this phenomenon to cool internal components. If they didn't do this they would fry themselves. So solar farms not only produce more heat in summer than the original land that they were installed on, but they also produce more cooling in winter, thus exacerbating weather extremes. So I conclude with this. There is nothing green about green energy except the dirty money flowing into corrupt pockets. There is not such thing as green energy. The science doesn't exist. The technology doesn't exist. The engineering doesn't exist. We are being pushed to save the planet with solutions that are worse than the problems.

Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!

Tom
