I find myself increasingly at odds with just about
everything I once
believed to be
true and right. I can see through all the manufactured
realities of "human folly" and into a cosmos that knows no prejudice,
religion or politics.
As a consequence of the above observation I
make no apologies for what I say below and I realize that I am also
part of the human problem.
MY SELF DETERMINATION
I do not consider myself a conservative, liberal, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Protestant, Republican, Democrat, Communist, Socialist, Anarchist
or, last but not least, free. I am simply one of billions of human
Earthlings. The very idea that humankind should be segmented by class,
country, race or ideology is a sign of evolutionary mediocrity and
stagnation. A sure
sign of failure on the cosmic level.
HUMAN FOLLY #1 " The concept of Class and Elitism"
Newton's Third Law of Inertia plain and simply put: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction -
is still proven to be correct throughout the Universe. Unfortunately
this law is ignored by humans when dealing with rewards for work. Work should
be rewarded by
an equal measure of benefit. Keeping this in mind, how do we
justify one elite human earning millions of dollars for doing
physically very little? How do we justify other humans working jobs that require much more effort at minimum wage?
There is NO moral
justification for human inequality and every human being deserves an
equal chance at peace and a stress free life. The future of humankind is doomed under the rule of Capitalism and the
governing Elite. This is "The Matrix"
HUMAN FOLLY #2 - "Ideology"
useless conflicts abound with Christians against Muslims, Democracy
against Communism, Jews against Palestinians, Republicans against
Democrats, Muslim against Hindu, blacks against whites, left against right, and the rich against the poor. All of
these conflicts are totally absurd on a cosmic level because the
universe simply doesn't care about "human folly".
This type of human
folly is the futile attempt at interpreting
the Universe and imposing that interpretation on others. One thing I do
know about the universe is, IT DOESN'T
CARE. Ideology is a human art form which has no place governing our
diverse species. Ideology belongs in the heart but not imposed on the
multitude in the form of a government.
HUMAN FOLLY #3 "SELF IMPORTANCE"
importance is not the same as conceit. Humans don't understand that being insulted or depressed
by reality is a sign of self importance. We spend too much time in
measuring how things stack up to our demands. When things don't align
with our wishes we get angry and suffer any of the below symptoms.
SIGNS OF SELF IMPORTANCE
Putting up walls,
fighting over religious and ideological differences,
lack of compassion,
not obeying traffic laws,
class distinctions of all kinds,
and political polarization are all symptoms of self importance.
an individual level humans can be so beautiful and compassionate. Each
human is a mystery and a being of wonder. On a collective level we are
dangerous when guided by primitive ideological doctrines.
An alternate reality on planet Earth.
different human reality could surface due to the development of the
computer and Artificial Intelligence. A reality where all human stress
It would be a cooperative world worthy of cosmic scrutiny:
No more commercials,
No more positioning for power or wealth.
No reason to hoard gold or anything else,
No worrying about money,
No religious based governments enforcing one belief on others,
No governments ruling by extortion (bills),
No insurance (extortion),
No Dictatorships to oppress or brainwash the people,
No paying for knowledge,
No time limit on learning,
No paying for health care,
No working 8 hours a day,
No privileged information,
No hatred on the highways,
The list goes on and on and on.......
- There is no way a government can function when driven by
2 opposing and unforgiving points of view.
function of any government should be limited to maintaining
infrastructure and providing laws that equally protect EVERY
individual's rights and health. There is NO justification for imposing
"beliefs" on others. On a cosmic level we are all equal.
you don't maintain infrastructure then all else fails. We actually
believe in this illusion we call Capitalism which is responsible for
restricting human evolution. Humans need to evolve and crystallize
into a cooperative species that recognizes the freedoms of the
individual. Why? TO PROTECT OUR SPECIES
It is absurd to demand money for knowledge.
It is absurd to demand money in exchange for health care.
What advanced species would do such horrid things?
human reality is motivated and built upon earning a profit, which in turn
eliminates any moral high ground. Capitalism has become a human habit and an evil nightmare.
- Look how low we've sunk regarding intellectual property. We develop
cures for diseases yet we are only interested in selling those cures.
"Let them pay up or die", that's our motto!
of these worlds (above) has the best chance to succeed? On the left we
have a world divided. The answer is the world on the right
side. A world without class distinctions, conflicts or borders. This is the only option
which guarantees both our survival and a road to the stars.
there are millions of humans who would like to evolve.
try to educate under the constraints of a stop watch? Why do we force
children to pass
through the eye of a needle by limiting their time and what they may
learn? But the most embarrassing thing we humans do is demand payment
must crystallize into a species with a cosmic perspective. Imagine how humans would benefit if all knowledge and
resources were free and shared. Imagine a world without
without hoarding, without nepotism, without the prejudice we call
patriotism, without corporate secrets,
government secrets or ignorance.
Henry once said "I am no longer a Virginian, I am an American." It is time
for all humans to say "I am no longer of one country, one club, one race or one religion. I am an Earthling."
A COSMIC PERSPECTIVE
galaxy "The Milky Way" has around 200 billion stars circling
a giant black hole. It is estimated that there are another 200 billion galaxies
the known universe (probably an absurdly low estimate).
first human radio broadcasts have traveled through space since the
small circle (below) represents the distance
our radio broadcasts have traveled since then. Earth would be in
the center of that small circle and, as you can see, the vast majority
of our own galaxy is yet unaware of our existence. Now you see
why no one
has responded to our radio broadcasts. They are out there but distances
are great, radio signals degrade and size matters. The truth itself is
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW A TRUTH ABOUT THE COSMOS?
BELOW IS A CROSS SECTION OF THE MILKY WAY WHICH DEMONSTRATES
THE PATH EARTH TAKES THROUGH THE PLANE OF THE MILKY WAY
that we know, see, feel, hear and taste derives from coalescing gas and
exploding stars. Your gold jewelry comes from
an ancient exploding star, forged by intense fusion long before our
Earth existed. We are all made entirely of star stuff.
we really believed in our Earthly religions we would not allow a world, like the one above, to exist.
SLAVERY STILL EXISTS -
Slavery in modern times is driven by Inequality. Some humans work the majority
of their waking hours
for minimum wage. If humans must use money then,
to be fair, wages should be based on individual energy output. Those
who work the hardest in a physical sense should earn the most money.
Imagine the weight loss!!!
2 cups of Nationalism,
2 cups of religion (any will do)
3/4 cups of Ignorance (not stupidity just ignorance),
and a dash of bigotry, jealousy, envy and want.
Bake at 90 degrees
A DECENT CIVILIZATION WOULD BE
REPULSED BY THE VIEW (BELOW).
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS.
Interesting fact: WHERE DID THEY GO?
All the ancient peoples of
Earth still exist. The Maya, Inca, Greek, Anasasi, Roman, Egyptians,
Nubian, Mongols and natives of all kinds are still here. They simply
disperse amongst the rest. Yes even the DNA of Neanderthals is within
us. Anything that is physically possible can happen and is natural.
BLINDLY FOLLOW, REALLY?
will always question the sanity or motives of someone who speaks for
any God or country. I refuse to blindly follow any political party, any
religion or any law that seems constructed by prejudice or human folly.
all people are equal, there is no threat of persecution. When there is
no threat of persecution there is nothing more to conquer except the
A beautiful moment in time near Bali 1968
were sailing the pacific on the USS Providence just off the coast of Bali in 1968. It was
a hot still summer night around 12:00 midnight and
I was sitting on the deck with a few of my friends in the navy band.
Everything was eerily quiet and even the sound of a nuclear
cutting the water was lost in the absolute quiet of a mirror
smooth ocean. The surface of the water was completely hidden by a 2
foot high fog layer above the surface. It was as if we were sailing on a
cloud and when you looked
over the side you saw only white. Above us the Milky Way was
Out of the cloudy mist below emerged flying fish. They would glide about 20 yards
before diving back into the white silence. The whole experience was
like living in a Dali painting. The flying fish, the silence and the
fog were all components of a beautiful moment that I would never again
experience. It wasn't over yet!!
Gary Marcus, a 1st class petty officer who
was a phenomenal tenor sax player, appeared on deck dressed only in his
underwear and with his tenor sax hanging from his neck. He was following an
officer up to the bridge. My friends looked at each other
that he was fuming mad. Not five minutes later we heard "Bali Hai"
played over the loud speaker so the whole ship could hear it. Once the
melody was over he finished it off with a mad flurry of notes as if
pissing all over what he had just played. Ahhh, the wonderful language
of music. A beautiful evening in so many ways.
was recently told by Mike Burns (a fine musician and one who knows
about sacrifice) that Gary Marcus was married and needed to stay in the
Navy to pay for his child's medical problems. Inspiration comes from
those around us.
universe is full of matter that is moving. Matter in motion leaves a trail. That trail
is Memory. We only need to open our eyes,
smell a scent, hear a sound, taste or touch to use memory. Everything that you
perceive is memory.
on all planetary bodies are memory.
rocks from receding glaciers are memory,
A snail's trail is memory,
Ripples in the sand,
or a sticky
dollar bill are memory,
A bruise, a cruise or a short fuse are memory,
The scent of perfume is memory,
that moves or is moved upon is memory........
hypothetically, if there
is an awareness of all memory then that would suggest a singular
universal consciousness. A glimmer of hope for all the religious out

THE PRESENT AND FUTURE
STATUE OF LIBERTY
Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to be free,
the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.

tolerance. Oh well.....we all know that money trumps compassion".
Keep your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to be free,
keep the refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed elsewhere.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door,

These ignorant Chinese soldiers think they are doing the right thing,

The U. S. government would do the same if the elite felt threatened.
"It's amazing how brave our leaders are while sending our sons and daughters to do their dirty work".
- Medical insurance is extortion paid by individuals to stay
alive and backed by our government.
Asking for money in return for medical care is embarrassing on a
cosmic level. My apologies to any intelligent life out there.
TWO IMPORTANT SURVIVAL REQUIREMENTS
INFRASTRUCTURE - For
humans to survive it is necessary that we maintain and develop a
consistent and improved infrastructure (communications, water, power,
transportation, education and housing) at all times.
- One of the most important aspects of accelerated evolution would be global
standardization, thus allowing all people access to the same
for a specified length of time (example: ten
years) without suffering incompatibility problems.
