View from the hill

Today,as I gazed down at the town from my hilltop, I saw a "man" who had inherited about £120,000 several years ago, and, rather than buy his council flat, he'd blown all the money on foreign holidays (which he couldn't recall, due to the vast intake of alcohol) and wanted to stay as he always had - unemployed, cared for (mothered) by the state, and permanently drunk. It's mildly annoying for

A stupid man will get understanding when a wild donkey gives birth to a man A quote from the English Bible, Job chapter 11, verse 12 Especially for Remulak (aka Anonymous). My response to your insightful comments regarding President Trumpet - the western world's icon of self-knowledge, empathy, consciousness and other false news.

creepy parking ... and piles satire

Mr Creepy  retrieved his tobacco from under the settee while his wife was busy in the bathroom. He’d brought her back from town and was pleased to discover his parking space across the road hadn’t been taken. No sooner had he reminisced his good fortune, squatting by the settee, than he heard the sound of a large vehicle coming to a standstill outside his house. The road was a dead-end, and

The Cranberries - Zombie terrorism as projection of internal conflict

It's a long while since Planet Earth's most depraved species invented terrorism. The history of terrorism is a controversial subject, since those accused of it inevitably think either they are maiming 'guilty' targets, or the opposition are the terrorists, or, of course, both. Following the post of Soprano Joyce DiDonato raising the emotional horrors of orchestrated violence with her music

psychology, consciousness, ego in very young children

As I often say - Nothing can penetrate the institutional mind, more specifically, its preconceptions. Fortunately, psychology scientists have decided to test the assumption that pre-school children are very bad at hiding because they they are egocentric - they often just cover their eyes when asked to hide. The new research shows that they also believe that THEY can't see another if the

corporate politics - presidential auctions

I was tempted to title this 'Corporate Democracy', but that would be such a glaring oxymoron. It is frustrating to witness the 'relatively' poor people of the world beating each other to death over whether to vote for Trump or Clinton in the 2nd $billion + US presidential auction. Both candidates are representing corporate interests, and a system that is in debt to a handful of

Mystical experience following a stroke - jill bolte taylor's stroke of insight

Excellent video on consciousness, and the 2 sides of our brain: Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke.  As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment.  This is a powerful story about

Know thyself ... or wound others

Even in the tiny, quiet town of Smogdale, UpNorth County, in the UQ (the Untidy Queendom of Little England), the traffic congestion is getting so bad that Kevin the builder has a problem. Despite being a couple of inches short of 7 feet tall, well built and notoriously energetic, he doesn't want to carry his tools 200 yards from his van to his house every day after work. He doesn't want to carry

Racist halfwits are offered self-awareness

Racist halfwits are offered self-awareness (!) but decline the offer One of the perks/handicaps of being 360 years young (!) is spotting glaring contradictions. Sometimes this gets me into hot water. For example, a mother and daughter with a 'foreign' accent in a cafe, suddenly confronted by a crowd of young males sporting tattoos and aggressive attire. They want to know if the females are

Paradise Found

Ancient Ivor is giving young Paul a lift in his car. Paul chats continually and is agitated about Ivor driving so slowly. "Where's the radio?" Paul asked. There isn't one. After fifteen minutes, Ivor stops in a lay-by. "I need you to be quiet for five minutes. Empty your mind and look at the world. After each minute, or thereabouts, I'll ask you a question." "Okay Gov. You're the boss.

Consciousness - The World in ones Head

Tibestian Book of the Undead, part 5 I think I was about 50 when I first realised that many people's world is almost entirely in their minds. I'd known for decades that people are complicated, very different .. weird. Including yours truly, of course. The first example I recall was when I'd spent many months rebuilding a barn, as well as having a full time job. I finished making the roof
