New Jerusalem, Eldorado, and Other Myths

My brain seems to have kicked in the
"Rise to the Occasion" mode already LOL|

Imagine a Mecca with who knows
how many billions of souls

roaming the eternity gaily 


trying all to cram in

or fly to Pluto

on the most Holy Day now?


And a floating CUBE at that

defying all the laws of physics?

(I know I know

God is not bothered by physics 😈 )


Or maybe the New Jerusalem

is just a Borg Ship after all?


You WILL be ASS imilated!

New Jerusalem if we are to believe the fairy tales would be about the size of Pluto
(smaller than our Moon) 


Using of course the Magic Number of 12

multiplied by a thousand

and funnily enough the measure standards of the time:

a fucking stadia of all things


an ancient Greek unit of length, based on the length of a typical sports stadium of the time. 

Seriousfuckingly now

People HAVE to start thinking FFS


Allegory Shmallegory

Symbolic Shambolic 

and of course the holy rollers
who take all this LITERALLY


12,000 stadia,
the equivalent of 1,400 miles
or 2,200 kilometers,


Really? REALLY?

shaking my head in disbelief now






We ARE all Deuterostomes!

We are all Deuterostomes!


We all are born assholes. (Arseholes for Brits and Australians)

We're born an asshole
we live mostly as assholes
and we die well as shite really.


Dust, Ashes, Fertiliser, so Shite really,
 or Whatchamacallit.


Death is literally our last dump.

All this "enlightenment" came to me while reading cracked.com of  course! 😈

While reading about our many double standards and so much more

Well if you read me before it is nothing new really.

I do not hold much faith in human nature or humanity as you all know.

Some people say we are good by nature
to which I strongly disagree but even then 


We are good by nature UNTIL
and that is the big big word UNTIL.


People might be really nice to you in many countries but IF they were learn that you are an atheist for instance well it could be quite dangerous if not deadly they would turn into foaming at the mouth animals and maybe quarter you, or dismember you, or behead you, or just spread the rumours and the hate and the shunning.

Not only atheist,
any chip on their shoulders one might have.


The example that comes to mind now
is Thelma & Louise among many others.


Everyone of us like Peterson says
in his Jungian lingo
has a Shadow,
an animal inside of him
what is it again in Freudian terms an Id?


I do,  and you do too.

To deny it is one of the most dangerous form actually as history has taught us many times in many revolutions and political movements
or just mass hysteria a la Zola's Germinal for instance.


So if we walk the line people might appear to be nice
and if you follow the tide you may be fine for a while.


Enough dribbling shit for the mo

even though it keeps my mind from exploding 
and my fuses and breakers from popping these days 
in these rough times in so many ways  😛

So think on that all you Deuterostomes out there. 😜

Semantics again

“Ignorance is a virus. 
Once it starts spreading, 
it can only be cured by reason. 
For the sake of humanity, we must be that cure.”

~ Neil deGrasse Tyson



The fact is we may be way too ignorant to even know about ignorance, 
or the depth of ignorance.

For one thing in one's mind ignorance is synonymous with Sartre's Hell.

IGORANCE IS OTHER PEOPLE.

L'ignorance c'est les autres.

One always talks about ignorant at the third person.

In fact an ignoramus or an ignoranus
(one who is ignorant AND an asshole)
is always someone else.

These two terms are almost synonymous:

Ignorant and Asshole.


Everyone who is part of a war is highly ignorant to begin with
no matter how brilliant a scientist he is.
He is the victim of high delusions, lies, and CONCEALMENT.

The first casualty of war is truth

because truth Aletheia means
LACK OF CONCEALMENT.

What Tyson calls a VIRUS now
was called a POISON 

for more than 2500 years
before the time of Christianity even 

which came with its own version
of ignorance and gnosis and truth.

If one was to study the ancient meanings of words which is not always the modern meaning of words one might come up with terms like
Moha 

or

Avidyā

Each term with a thousand nuances of meanings as it is often with sanskrit

much of it lost in translation as it is often with languages.

One of the main reason we may never defeat ignorance is that for one thing its so-called replacement is undefined, vague, meaningless.

REASON is a funny word and means a million things to a million people.

REASON is what you see today with a million hour long debates with both parties leaving exactly as they came
as confident and arrogant
and know-it-all as before.


While both of them are as wrong as any debates taking place 500 years ago
if one could simply do some
simple simian extrapolation here
and realise.


Laplace's Demon
or a REAL All-knowing god
would know and laugh.


So-called Reason has not saved us so far and never will considering the gazillion inherent flaws in human engineering.

The French Revolution might be a good example if we consider that we are still the ignorant masses same as it was with Germany not so long ago and with the Japanese and now with the Americans and the Chinese and what not.

There are no answers in intellectualism really.

Mind you a world without hysteria
and the mass hysteria of religion especially
and a world of calm thinking human beings might be a better place to live.


Life is so fragile and there are a gazillion things trying to kill us every day so if we'd stop helping by eliminating the senseless killing it would be nice.

Divert all the military money to science and medicine
but NO
We use the discoveries in medicine and science to make OUR soldiers better and live longer
what utter bullshit since we cannot save them from PTSD and suicide even. 
The main cause of PTSD is probably that no matter how deeply we are programmed and brainwashed into killing
it is not really our nature.


Our nature is probably to survive wild animals and predators other than ourselves and to catch one of them animals once in a while for food and shelter and survival of the species

A bit like many old tribes had,
American Indians and others. 

Respect for all form of lives without going overboard now a la Buddhism.
(Insert PETA and veganism in overboard here) 


All this again to say nothing
and express my own ignorance
and my lack of reason.


But someone has to say something
about how deluded our race is.


Like I said:  simple extrapolation.

Truth is we are STILL in the DARK AGES.

Like Stephen Hawkings once said
(OR Daniel J. Boorstin):


The greatest enemy of knowledge
is not ignorance,

it IS the ILLUSION of knowledge.

And even that saying is loaded with
pre-conceived ideas and tainted towards cognitive dissonance and confirmation biases,

One might even USE that line to excuse one's personal belief etc

The darkness never ends.


Knowing is like the future in the Roadhouse Blues

Knowing is uncertain and the end is always near

TRUTH IS that truth is getting to be more and more undefined and one might wanna stand with Pontius Pilate here:

"WHAT IS TRUTH?"


In this social media age my hair stands on end when I read the word Truth or Science now
in any web page ESPECIALLY
when one of those words is in the title of the page one HAS to expect
some form or other of utter bullshit.

Ignorance and Reason are two more ambiguous semantic dilemmas filled with Freudian Defence Mechanisms, 



ignorant (adj.)late 14c., "lacking wisdom or knowledge; unaware," from Old French ignorant (14c.), from Latin ignorantem (nominative ignorans) "not knowing, ignorant," present participle of ignorare "not to know, to be unacquainted; mistake, misunderstand; take no notice of, pay no attention to," from assimilated form of in- "not, opposite of" (see in- (1)) + Old Latin gnarus "aware, acquainted with" (source also of Classical Latin noscere "to know," notus "known"), from Proto-Latin suffixed form *gno-ro-, suffixed form of PIE root *gno- "to know." Also see uncouth.Form influenced by related Latin ignotus "unknown, strange, unrecognized, unfamiliar." Colloquial sense of "ill-mannered, uncouth, knowing nothing of good manners" attested by 1886. As a noun, "ignorant person," from mid-15c. Related: Ignorantly.
ignore (v.)1610s, "not to know, to be ignorant of," from French ignorer "be unaware of" (14c.), or directly from Latin ignorare "not to know, be unacquainted; take no notice of, disregard" (see ignorant). The original sense in English is obsolete. Sense of "pass over without notice, pay no attention to" in English

Morally Justifiable

Morally Justifiable!
What a can of worms bullshit semantic expression FFS.

Morally justifiable 
to kill?
to go to war?
to abort?
blah blah blah


Just Google "morally justified" and go down deep and dark into the rabbit hole.

The stench of verbal diarrhoea is unmanageable and unbearable.

All the self-righteousness and completely TWISTED rationalisation and many other Freudian DEFENCE mechanisms go in full gear on ATTACK.

Again I feel compelled to quote Pratchett here:

“All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need... fantasies to make life bearable."
REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE."Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES."So we can believe the big ones?"YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING."They're not the same at all!"YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED."Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"MY POINT EXACTLY.” ― Terry Pratchett, Hogfather


I can hear "THEM" already foaming at the mouth all turning into Vicky Pollards Yeah But...No But...yeah butt....no butt...

"The BIBLE says this and the BIBLE says that and there is no just and blah blah blah except me the self-righteous racist rapist prick here."

It never ends and the USA seem to be an extremely fertile ground for that foaming gibberish self-righteousness, self- righteous until they get caught as always with their hands in the cookie jar or with their pants down and then they come back crawling begging for forgiveness since there is a shitload of money to be made telling others what to do.

But it is the same everywhere, everyone of them, 

ALL of US really including Atheists.  

Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Indigenous or Shintoist 

all in the same bag of lies and myths and made up stories thought to be "true"

A LIE IS A LIE IS A LIE.

and as said before

A MYTH IS A MYTH IS A MYTH.

I was thinking about that just the other day and my own dichotomy and cognitive dissonance 

(mix that with my cognitive dissociation and there you go) 


on how I love the HAKA as a performance but I hate all myths. Whether it's a Maori myth or Christian myth or a Babylonian myth or Greek Myth 


they are all LIES all made up stories.

But then again as Camus had to face and Pratchett tries to explain  it is quite hard if not totally impossible to live life without a single delusion.

So what is a man to do? 

Wherewithal shall an old man find his way?

Forgive the lack of PC here.


Eat and drink and be merry for tomorrow ye shall die 

seems to sum it all up.

Question EVERYTHING.

“Resist much, obey little.” 

and I could quote a shitload of Whitman here and even find something I question and resist even in his sayings like: 

“Whatever satisfies the soul is truth.” 

to which I would answer like Pontius Pilate

WHAT IS TRUTH? 

or as I prefer it ALETHEIA the absence of concealment.


“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large -- I contain multitudes.” ― Walt Whitman


“O Me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; Of the endless trains of the faithless—of cities fill’d with the foolish; Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?) Of eyes that vainly crave the light—of the objects mean—of the struggle ever renew’d; Of the poor results of all—of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me; Of the empty and useless years of the rest—with the rest me intertwined; The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life? 


Answer.


That you are here—that life exists, and identity; That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.” ― Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Out of Boredom

Words Words Words 


Eu-thanasia!

Honour!

Pride!

Duty!

Semantics 
are really fucked up.



The shit people say through Freudian defence mechanisms especially rationalisation, is
prolly the ULTIMATE original SIN.

Here is another word:

SIN!

MISSING THE FUCKING MARK! 
WELL WHO THE FUCK DOESN'T?

And then some smart asshole comes to put down rules on you and get power over you because you missed the fucking mark AS IF he never did. 

Even more they tag you genetically 
to an ORIGINAL MISSING the FUCKING MARK 
that one of your Ancestor did 

Some Mitochondrial Eve  180,000 years ago, 
or some Y-chromosomal Adam some 275,000 years ago

How these two ever fucked now is beyond me 

It is as complicated as to where the fuck did Cain get his wife.

Now back to Euthanasia now I was joking around with my brother last night saying

I used to say the first day I shit myself will be my time to go now.

Well it is a little more complicated than that now innit?

Shitting yourself sure hurts your pride and honour and your nose sometimes and it is undignified as fuck but it doesn't HURT.

One can wear Depends for years now you know? :) 

The acceptable reason for euthanasia I suppose would be chronic pain of moreover getting fucking tired of the chronic pain but where does one draw the line it is always a very personal call.

Anyway hard to decipher the line at times between euthanasia and suicide both have connotations of evil attached to them especially suicide which is at time well part of a decent euthanasia.

Funny how most religions (like governments) talk against suicide. 

The main reason being for both of them that they are always worried about the COST of it 

not to YOU but to THEM of course.

You can't control a dead disciple, it is no fucking good 
and a dead taxpayer is a prophet of no profit.

While I am here babbling obliges, it is funny how the "great" intellects attack Islam especially and some will attack Christianity and some might dare to touch Judaism but many scientists have a weak spot for Buddhism as if it was different than the others.  

FFS! Speaking of rationalisation again.

Sam Harris,  Dr. Marsha Linehan, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Leonard Cohen and so many more.

It seems to me that Buddhist countries are as ignorant and hysterical as all the others and they too will try to sell you some shite, plastic idols and what not: riots, wars, ignorance, self-immolation FFS and so many other practices but still you can associate yourself to Buddhism and pretend to be cool not like the others.

Anyway I am back to my old blog here

A MYTH IS A MYTH IS A MYTH,

When it comes to my iconoclastic behaviour, 

I break all idols.


too many words already

end of babble for now

Sheep and Apes


You're sitting quietly at a meeting somewhere and someone is retiring or it is his birthday and the most jovial semi drunk member of your group starts:

For he's a jolly good fellow ♪♫♪♫
blah blah blah 


and you mutter under your breath 


OH FUCK NO> PLEASE DON'T > STOP IT RIGHT NOW!


CAPITALS because one can mutter under his breath quite loudly now! :)

You resist and feel the immense pressure to join in for fear of being looked at as the ODD ONE when you well fucking know that the sheep are the odd ones for sure.

I was just saying this week I wonder who is the fucker who started the habit of clapping during ball reviews at tennis. 

Everybody was sitting there quietly watching the big screen and then one day one fucker with one or two too many cheap expensive beer started clapping and guess what?  

You wouldn't be caught dead not clapping now 'cause that is what people do.

It's like singing the national anthem or Happy Birthday those kind of simian behaviour should be kept really where they belong:

in the choir practice and exhibition. 


If you are dying to sing in unison learn the fucking Requiem for fuck sake.

Confutatis Fucka me and all that Jazz.

I know it's Voca Me but I prefer MY version! :)

Fucka Me Cum Benedictus. or more appropriately

Fucka Me Cum Maledictus.

This is how mass hysteria and lynching and foaming at the mouth mutilation and murder happens with our simian habits so the less we have the better we are.

We are so modelled to fit in it's downright crazy.  

From family to school to job to retirement even all peaceful Elois letting the Morlocks rule the world. when we don't turn into Morlocks ourselves.

I prefer the Whitman approach meself when it comes to simian habits:

“Resist much, obey little.” A
"re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul"

end of rant for now

Social Media and Old Age :)

There is a strange thing going on these days well strange to my old eyes anyway.

It is the appropriating of any generic whiny poor little misunderstood betrayed suffering me and making it your own as if it was your creation and your WHOLE life story.

One reads something and says oh yeah that is so ME and shares it right away when and where if one started to think and analyse for a second one could see it is a generic saying a bit like a horoscope and does not identify one's whole life story.

maybe it's a millennial thing. I totally fail to get millennials it must be a sign of the ages.

Nothing new under the sun.

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door
 Mike & The Mechanics - The Living Years Lyrics 

Every generation
Blames the one before
OR THE ONE AFTER!

It just seems to make it hard to figure out one's personality when the only Simulacra and Simulation 
(to quote Baudrillart here)
is a bunch of lame glued together memes.


Not sure what the future of Social Medias will be.
I am afraid that Charlie Brooker might be our own contemporary prophet of Doom 

in his canonical Black Mirror.

Speaking of Black Mirror and Millennials I was horrified by this recently.


It's the same thing on the train though. Everyone completely absorbed by their black mirror. 

Mine is usually in my pocket or in my bag LOL attached to my earbuds to block out the rest of the noisy world anyway, for the few who are not glued to their black mirror.


I find Facebook more and more depressing and from a discussion I had just this week with my doctor I am not the only one apparently.  

I stay off Twitter and am way too old for Instamatic anyway.

Another good example was this Fox app or some other TV app advertisement and this rich spoiled little girl who was totally bored and absolutely rude to her boyfriend because she had seen everything on the bus here and there and did not shy away from showing her boredom

( reminds me of that fake millennial ad on Subway Chicken too lol yawning at boring chicken)

My own adolescence was absolutely troubled and messed up don't get me wrong.

I went from hash, to mescaline, to acid, to cranking meth,  back to mescaline by the tea spoon in no time and I ended up in a detox centre and homeless by the time I was 20 

but STILL I am quite thankful (even though I had no choice in the matter) that I am not a teenager in this day and age. (even though today's teenagers would hardly qualify as millennials I suppose)

Anyway here is my old fart new rant for today.

Ciao for now



Death will be the Great Equaliser!
