GOD is Energy

The complexity of existence is based on very basic principles, energy in whatever form has to transform from one type to another, constantly, and this energy transference is the key to existence. Energy has to be a constantly changing form, from one thing to another. If you could somehow harbour that energy transference by some means beyond us, well beyond our capabilities, you would without knowing it become GOD!

And I do not mean the pitiful energies we exhibit on this planet, or this Solar System, Galaxy, or Cosmic Web. I mean the original; if there ever was one, the true pure energy, if it ever did exist, the ONE, the WHOLE, the INFINITY, the EVERYTHING, the slip that allowed the water to flow.

The mistake, the original happening, from so far back, the mind could never comprehend its being or existence, if the deluded god worshipers of this world, were to have existed, they would not have even been a thought of in the eye of the purest energy. Not even imagined, the passage of existence between the two, if ever there was such a passage, would be nearly infinite.

Can we know what the Universe looks like, now?

I was reading an article this morning about how scientists have found two massive clouds of gas that are pure, without any metals, they describe it as primitive, uncontaminated gas and support the long-standing theory as to how the chemical elements were formed in the early universe. They go on to say that the research also suggests stars have been unable to distribute metals throughout the Universe.

The question that entered my head after reading all this is; how do they know what the Universe is actually like now, when all the evidence is based on observation and analysis of light. Surely all we know for sure is how the Universe looked whenever the light was created, and that the scary fact is we have no idea what the Universe is actually like today, now at present.

This creates a paradox I may have mentioned before, the Universe could be seen as bi-polar, in that we have the Universe as we perceive it now, in our perspective, yet this Universe is not a true representation of how the Universe actually looks, or is for that matter. I always wondered how the Universe would be perceived if it was actually dead and all the stars stopped shining. Let’s say every galaxy apart from our own is now long gone, and all the light being emitted will soon stop. It would be at least 2 million years before we may realise the Universe is dead.

Then now I think further, what if the Universe overall is just like a mirage and the closer you get to a galaxy, the less likelihood of it being real. If you think about it; imagine if you were on a super fast spaceship travelling away from the Milky Way, heading towards Andromeda, then logically the galaxy should change as you moved closer to it. And if you were travelling fast enough it would seem like some kind of stop motion film, like flower petals opening in the light, or clouds rushing across the sky.

The stars would go through their life cycles incredibly quickly, you would see many supernovas, as well as births, and you would see the life and death of stars in the blink of an eye, as you travelled nearer and nearer to Andromeda.

As this is happening looking forward, if you were to see through your rearview mirror (or just look backwards, I doubt spaceships have rearview mirrors), the Milky Way would seem to change also, getting younger and younger, we could actually see the birth of our own star the Sun, and the formation of the planets. Time travel would then be observed if not experienced.

I have never thought of the Universe is such a way before, that if you travelled the incredibly long distances between stars or galaxies, especially galaxies, they would significantly change. This begs the question about reality and what is real and what is not. I have mentioned this before that the likelihood of some of the stars that are further away than say four billion Earth years existing, especially if they were massive stars is remote, and the actual structure of the Universe will never be as it is observed by telescopes today.

Maybe this has a bearing on why Einstein theorized we could not go faster than light, because basically our brains would not be able to comprehend, or for that matter, function and understand the reality being created around its observed perspective.

In a way I feel it adds to my perspective argument because it stipulates a limit to the human perspective, how easily the human brain can observe and comprehend what it sees as reality in front of its own senses. It also brings back one of my original arguments that the moment, now, is very important because it is like a speed limit that we are able to visualize and interpret the information the brain is receiving. How would the brain react to travelling at say one hundred light years an hour, as we hurtled towards Andromeda? How would the body react or your mind, your thought process, the ability to understand reality? Although as I think further, if you use Einsteins theories, whilst you are on the spaceship you would not notice the difference.

I suppose it is a mute point as we will never know at least not in my lifetime, but it is interesting to think about and it may help to understand what the Universe or Reality actually might be.

Why are we so obsessed with Doom, Armageddon and the End of the World?

Before I begin I will freely admit to thinking on these lines at times, but it seems to be a pleasurable and profitable hobby for some to predict how the end of man, the end of humanity, the end of the world will come to pass. Why is it throughout history, one of the key main factors occupying a humans mind is the end of everything and subsequent attempt to change everything, in so doing stopping the end of the world.

Is it a convenient untruth to think on these lines, to constantly create fear and anxiety, throughout the planet?

As long as I can remember something is going to kill us all, first it was nuclear weapons, an obvious humanity killer. Then we have had ice ages, global warming, terrorism, population growth, bird flu, lethal virus’s, oh and who can forget the stupidest one of all 2012; how many times have they made documentaries showing the top ten, end of the world disasters?

You would think the people of western society; love to live in dread and worry, contemplating things that have a likelihood of happening similar to you winning the lottery three times in a row.

Imagine that, someone tells you, you are going to win the lottery three times in a row, after how many lottery purchases would you say, sorry mate you’re talking bullshit. I would think millennia of being told the world is ending without it ending will make people start to think, umm let’s not bother to listen, because its rubbish.

The problem is as old (well no it’s a lot older) as the infamous fable, “the Boy who cried Wolf”. And to be honest this is the problem we have today, so many years, hundreds, thousands, probably tens of thousands of years of storytelling, lying, exaggerating, embellishing, whatever you want to call it, has left humanity complacent at the point of incredulity. We have become so complacent that we are forcing well meaning people to fall into the trap of creating erroneous, convoluted, extreme, stories in the vain attempt to make people realise the end of the world is nigh.

The problem we have as humans is this, how do we determine what is truth and what is fallacy? What is reality and what is myth? Is any of what they say true and then again if even a small part is what should we do about it?

If we are to believe what we see on the documentary channels, that the inevitable end is nigh, no wonder some people believe they can do what they want and act as they like.

In a weird way you have to say, it is quite a miracle that we as a species have survived as long as we have, with our creative imagination; it has its benefits but also its drawbacks, and it will take all our powers of self control not to actually one day prove all the doomsayers true and end the world. Until that day though, it would be nice if we could start to be more rational in our approach to the future and whether we are nearing the end. Wouldn’t that be nice.

Forget the past and move forward

Is this how it is going to be from now on in cricket, every bloody ex player is going to pick a game they feel might have been tainted by the stain of match fixing. It does no one any good to assume because of the recent revelations. I remember being told many times when I was younger, never assume as it makes an ass out of u and me.

The past is the past, and old international players making comments about games gone by is not going to help cricket, it will only hinder and spoil the reputation of the sport even further.

It is likely that many games from the past, in many sports have been tainted by match fixing, but no one will ever know which games they were, or what the fix was. So why dredge up old games and assume it might have been a game where match fixing was in play. It serves no purpose, and it will if nothing else cause division and controversy.

What needs to take place is to find a way to stop it happening in future. The problem with match fixing is that the true evil guys are the ones we never get to hear about, the ring leaders, the betting syndicates, the real criminals, they pray on the weak, the naive, the less intelligent, as well as the greedy and selfish. It should be no surprise that the country most noted for match fixing in cricket, is the most lawless country out of the Test playing nations, the one country in financial and political trouble.

I can imagine if someone in the UK was asked to be part of a match fixing scam, they can say F**K OFF!!! But it is that easy in Pakistan? I read this morning one player had to leave the country because he did not want to participate in match fixing, which adds a more shady edge to the proceedings.

Hopefully with more technology, as well as the recent revelations and the draconian sentencing, this might start to make it harder to fix matches. It should stop the less inclined cheaters, but whether it will stop the real criminals is unlikely, and how they go about stopping it is also uncertain, but one thing that will definitely not help, is to drag up the past and assume it was a fixed game.

Japanese Scientists find highest CO2 levels in Third World parts of the World

I read an article this morning stating that Japanese scientists have found evidence, from their new high tech satellite that in fact the worst areas for high concentrations of the deadly CO2 are third world countries, and North America and Europe has a negligible amount. They even state that parts of Europe and America actually absorb masses of the so called deadly poisonous gas*.


(I personally do not deem CO2 to be a deadly poisonous gas, as many disillusioned people who are in high positions of authority believe. CO2 is a vital gas in the creation of life and so is fundamental to existence, and so should never be treated in the manner it is at present, by so many so called intelligent people.)

So what does this mean to the World?

Well it should end the farce that is Carbon taxing and taxing the world’s worst offenders, because now the world’s worst offenders are the parts of the word we are trying to help. Then again carbon taxing or whatever they call it these days is all about making lots of money and not about the environment. It’s about limiting loss by betting on both sides.

I now wonder how much longer the CO2 causing global warming farce will continue, and let’s hope it’s not too long and we can concentrate on the real issues crucifying the world.

Overpopulation, deforestation, greed, large corporation corruption, hunger, poor standards of living, despotism, and many other dreadful acts, are far more important to the survival of humanity than whether there is too much CO2 in the atmosphere.

Please someone who knows the truth, in a position of authority and trust, who sits quietly quaking in their boots, frightened to speak out against this dictatorial attitude; wake up and realise the damage your silence is causing in the looming darkness, which will mean you are complicit in the biggest, most damaging and deluded, course of action the world has ever seen. You are no different to Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, or any of the other multitudes of despots that have tainted our world, if you continue to follow this deluded tomfoolery. Your selfish greedy actions will be the death of us all.

There is a crisis point to all of this, but unfortunately most of the well meaning people are barking up the wrong tree and they need to realise it soon.

Reality, what are thee?

Here is something I thought about last night whilst lying in bed. You will immediately see that I live a sad life, so sad that my mind thinks of these things last before my eyes close, but hey I found it fascinating to think of, even if it is rubbish.

Here it is and I apologise to anyone who knows equations as this is a very simplified version of one.

If x definitely exists from the perspective of x

And may or may not exist from the perspective of y

And if y exists from the perspective of y

And may or may not exist from the perspective of x

And x = V

And y = V

Then V ∞ = the perspective of every observer in the Infinitiverse

Not sure if this has any relevance and it may need to be expanded, but it seems to follow a logical pattern.

I don’t know why I feel that perspective of everything (meaning anything and everything that can exist or not exist depending on the perspective of the observer) is the key to finding out what Reality is, and how it may help us to understand the Universe or Infinitiverse. It just seems plausible that if you expand Einstein’s relativity theory beyond our Reality, and use the same fundamental principles not just for light, space time, but for the whole of Reality, then more answers to the difficult questions will become apparent.

To me there is more to our subconscious brain, our mind, our thought process, our senses, everything that makes up what we know as a human being. Why are we able to comprehend ambiguous thoughts, create something out of nothing, imagine beyond the capabilities we set ourselves.

Maybe deep down, deep inside our brain, there is a memory of the past, a ghost image presented to every observer in the Infinitiverse, allowing us to without realising it, view Reality in an abstract way; to somehow conform or even give us the opportunity to survive in the Reality we exist in. Beyond the general environmental, evolutionary advantages we have been awarded; these are specific key ingredients passed down through each evolutionary cycle going back to the beginning of everything, if there ever was such a beginning.

Now I think about it, you could use a recent invention as a means to describe the Infinitiverse. Imagine a computer game, one of these new online inactive Playstation 3 type games that kids play these days. You the user (or observer if you are talking about Reality) are participating in a game, yet you can only see your game and how it is panning out for yourself. You know that in the online version of said game you are surrounded by many other users (observers), but you can only see them in the context of the game or should I say your game or your perspective. You can see their avatar so to speak, but not their Reality. You see the persona of each user (observer) from your perspective, yet you know that it is not real, and that the observer is nothing like the persona you observe. This brings a strange conclusion to mind, as the user in the game is not real, they only exist in the reality of the game, yet the human mind and imagination create a real person, not just a persona. In doing so it makes the game real and the persona in the game real, yet the user of the persona as far as the game is concerned is not real.

Umm, not sure if I have been able to explain that very well, sometimes it is very difficult to put down in words, what is in my mind.

The Sickness

John needed a drink, it had been a long day, his knees and feet were killing him, he needed to relax take his mind off the day’s events. It was over, his divorce was finally settled and he was free for the first time in his adult life. John smiled as he sat watching the news with only Jack for company. Out of the blue a news flash filled the large 50” flat screen, a small bomb had went off in JFK, but he was miles away, dreaming of a small farm far away from everyone, far away from the rigors of his normal life.

Mila was in a hurry, she was late for her class, she always had to rush to Professor Johnson’s class, working in a bar at lunchtime meant it was a desperate dash to make it there in time.

Hanna was daydreaming, she wanted to fly away to a tropical destination, all she saw all day was people rushing off to other destinations, and she hoped one day to join them. The news flash was causing a bit of the stir amongst the hierarchy at the airport, everyone was on alert, the bomb that went off in JFK was thought to be part of an extensive terrorist attack. Why anyone would want to bomb here she could not imagine, but she was asked to check for left baggage, and she had to check the female toilets. I get all the fun jobs she pondered.

Manish was finishing his shift at the local call centre; he was walking towards his favourite bar with some of his work colleagues when Jay caught them up.

“Have you heard the news?” Jay asked.

“What news?”

“A bomb,” he said, “in New York at the airport.”

Great, Manish thought, more grief.

Alexa was in a bad mood, she was not happy that the Prada handbag she had wanted was now unavailable to purchase, she shouted down the phone, as she walked down the high street. Disgusted she hung up and steamed a sigh, before heading towards the nearest boutique.

The news about the bomb was spreading, and as the days past and the President said he would do everything to find the terrorists, people started to get sick.

Sickness around New York was increasing and the doctors were unable to know what was the cause, people showed signs of having a virulent flu bug. The hospitals in the New York area watched in horror as more and more people came down sick. The dots were not joined until three weeks after the bomb blast. Scientists and doctors started realising there must have been something in the blast, but at this time no one knew what it was.

Patients lay in the hospital beds or at home or even now on the streets, as the sickness turned into a pandemic. And this was not just a problem in New York many cities around the world were seeing the same terrible signs.

On the 23rd day it was announced that there had been a virus released into the atmosphere at JFK, and that all flights to and from the city were cancelled. Unfortunately it was too late, as many victims lay wasting in beds unable to die, lingering in a painful agony no one could explain.

A state of emergency was cast throughout America and Europe, all flights were cancelled as more and more people fell to the sickness. There was now no room in hospitals and with all emergency services stretched to maximum, panic filled the streets though it was turning into a silent panic as so many people, young, old, fit, healthy, people fell to the dreadful sickness.

The world was in a state of disaster; over five hundred million people had contracted the sickness, civilisation was starting to collapse. No one still knew what was causing so many people to fall into this painful agonising sickness.

Then a fanatic militant fundamentalist leader for a far flung ancient religion took responsibility for the attack. Everyone was shocked they had been convinced it must have been Muslim or Christian fundamentalists but it was an ancient death religion.

The statement released throughout the world said this.

“You the darkened world; you who have destroyed all that is strong and powerful; you who have lost yourselves in commercial despotism, will pay the heaviest price. You who have shamed yourselves, you have shown the true gods that you are not the gift, you are not the enlightened, you are death and so you shall pay by having no death. You will linger in agonising pain for all eternity; you will behave like the beast below the animals of the world. You have been poisoned with a deadly infection, and now you will all rot in the hell you have created forever.”

A chill filled the hearts of the fortunate or unfortunate as they listened to the whole broadcast, and then the sick started to die, yet they did not die they changed and the change was the curse of all humanity, they changed into Zombies.

Light of the Sun

The light of the Sun shines out like a beacon cascading across the world, bathing warmth and happiness, luxuriating unfettered joy. It leaves a sense of wonder and dreamy susurration, glowing wisps, incandescent flames, illuminating the glory of life. To feel its presence and marvel at its splendour, entwining all that is good throughout the world.

As a beating heart of life, growing ever faster, livelier, melodic, flirtatious fluttering, forever filling, the vast kaleidoscope of flourishing fortuitous actions. Binding, loving, longing, leaving loneliness aside, joining, holding, blessed being, lost in heavens warm bosom.

Never, does one ever, want to leave; the calming tenderness, the gentle kindness, the pleasant affection received. Harder to move away from the desires to stay, forced to make the terrible decision, to leave the safety behind, to venture out into the world beyond the warmth, beyond the happiness and into the cold of winter, sunless, moonless existence.

Time does not exist

There was an article asking whether time exists, unfortunately it was a video and the video did not stream so I am unable to confirm their take on time. My take on time is this, it does not exist, it is a man-made creation no different to the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, The Empire State Building and so on and so forth. Time in a way is a great hindrance in trying to understand the Universe, because we base time on our Planet Earth orbiting the Sun. So time itself is only a measure of this action, and so has no real bearing on the age of the Universe, or how the objects existing in the reality of this Universe, interact and compile their unique perspective on Reality.

Time can be construed as the measurement of the aging of the moment we all exist in; as we only exist in one moment and so time can only comprehend the illusion of moving forward. I think I have mentioned something similar before when discussing time travel. Time can only ever be relevant to the passage of time on this planet, in this dimension, in this moment of Reality we exist in. An example of this is the ease in which we manipulate time for our own benefit, daylight saving hour which is added or taken away to create a false illusion that we have gained or lost and hour in the day.

We cannot live without time, yet this in itself is a paradox because time does not exist and cannot be deemed a definite to survive in our Universe. Does the Sun use time to forge its pathway through the Galaxy? No. Does Jupiter of Saturn use time to create its orbit of the Sun? No.

Time is only there for mans benefit, and as we all know time can be perceived as slower or faster depending on instance, whether a real change in time is true or not.

We will never truly know the value or impediment of time, until we are able to travel to another star system and see if there are any real changes. The idea that if you leave Planet Earth and travel as fast as light (or faster), to another star system then return and you will be and different age to the people on Planet Earth has got to be circumspect at the very least. Logic may state this is so, but until someone does it, it will always be a human perspective created because of time.

The strange question is what could we create instead of time? What if we never had time, would another illusory creation be manifested to gain order in our world. Then again maybe all life forms have their own inbuilt time mechanism, as we know they do on this planet. I suppose all we have done is to take the inner mechanism of time and reproduced it outside of our minds, artificially mimicking the inner clock.

Time supposedly helps us to understand the Universe but sometimes I feel it is a block, as it gives values to things we realistically are unable to put a value on. The light from the stars we see in the sky are in our moment as seen now. To put a measurement on the light stating it is x million light years old is using the human time illusion beyond its boundaries. It is a bit like trying to use a 30 cm ruler to measure the size of Australia.

The speed of light always seems like a convenient way to perceive distance, but it is incredibly vague and can never be used as an accurate device. What if we can go instantly to another star system that we perceive to be 10 million light years away, and when we get there and look back at our own star the Sun, it is 6 million light years away, or maybe 10 billion light years away. Since we have been unable to leave our planet and perceive our planet from another star we will never know.

So we need time to control our lives, to take away the chaos of existence, and form a set value that helps humanity to exist. Whether or not time can be used as it is at present, to help understand things beyond our planet or beyond our solar system, I think we will over time learn and find out. Time is an enigma, and maybe it will turn out to be the key to everything as Einstein states, then again it may turn out to be a false dawn that has pulled us down the wrong path.

Anyway it’s just a thought.

Dark World

There is a world we see around us; it is a dark, cold, world with no end in sight, no glimmer of light or warmth, just freezing darkness. The barren wasteland that stretches as far as the eye can see, the endless desolate planes, the marauding wilderness, a cacophony of silence nightmares, where evil dwells. No one should take this world lightly, for it is a gaping wound, a festering gash of swollen ignorance and pride. Bound and tied, gagged a misbegotten, seeping, sewer of putrid flesh, unable to renew, unable to rejuvenate, unable to flourish.

Like the darkness stretched out before thee, no one can see, no one believes that they are truly in darkness, they see a glimmer of light and they hope and pray it will bring warmth. Yet the light is but an illusion, a play of shadows, a dance of demons flickering in the dimming.

Where be the sun? Will it ever rise again?

Does the fog of war cloud the senses, and hold each man in bated breath?

Does the stain of dreadful doings, the miscreant, the raper of the world, pour scorn and guilt on to us all?

The terrible stench of his breath that poisons the good, leaving them weak unable to fight the cause of greatness, unable to seek a green and pleasant land, unable to search and destroy the devil. Clouding the minds, suffocating, befuddled, bemused, bewildered, perplexing, a confusion, a torment, no solace, no forgiveness, forever lonely dreaming a nightmare, creating reality, dissecting a legacy, destroying a destiny for all eternity.

The Princess Bride

I remember when I was in my teens and one gloomy Sunday afternoon, BBC2 was showing The Princess Bride. Not sure why I decided to watch it because let’s face it the title isn’t a title of the film a teenage lad would watch, but I did and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I love it when this happens, when you find a film that you know nothing about, have never heard of before, and just watch on the off chance, and it turns out to be a classic that ends up being one of your favourite films of all time. I suppose in the age of IMDb and other movie sites; it is more difficult to know nothing about a film before you see it, but back in the late 80’s that was the norm.

At the time I had never seen a film like it before, and to be honest there has not been many since, at least not many which can match the sheer brilliance of Rob Reiner’s adaptation. Fantasy books are never easy to adapt especially before the CGI age, but this film is more about characters and dialogue than it is about fantasy. The film is nearly as famous for its one liner’s as its story.

The story as we all know is about true love, and a simple tale of farm boy loving the most beautiful girl in the world, but not feeling worthy of her love until he goes away and makes his fortune. After this opening you may have raised your eyes and said oh not again, but then after the opening the story is about pirates, kidnapping, monsters, revenge, deceit, near death, torture, overcoming overwhelming odds and finally you guessed it, true love and happiness.  All cleverly mixed together with a twist of subtle humour, sarcasm and irony, to make a fantastic film.

This film always has the ability to put a smile on my face, and so I was overjoyed when I found out my local cinema was showing it once more. There are lots of old films I would love to see at the cinema, and I jumped at the chance to watch this classic. And it did not let me down, it is still great no matter how many times you see it, you still always leave with a smile on your face and warm feeling in your heart. Isn’t great when films can do that?

I read a lovely article this morning, talking to the stars and director now, 24 years later. They all still have fond memories of making the film; one part of the discussion that stands out for me is by the Mandy Patinkin (who played Inigo Montoya; he had the best line in the film, “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.), he said, “I sat with my wife watching the film, and at the end I was crying. My wife said, “What’s the matter?” I said, “I never dreamed I would get to be in anything like this.”

To me that just says it all.

Bhopal Disaster an excellent example of the Psychopathy of Corporations

There was a good doc on about the Bhopal disaster; it wasn’t anything astounding it was just one of those ‘Seconds from Disaster’, ‘Nat Geo’ docs. It went to great detail about the catastrophic chain of events which lead to one of the worst industrial disasters ever.

Over three thousand people died initially from the release of a deadly toxic chemical MIC (methyl isocyanate), and a further eight thousand died as a result of the deadly gas over the few weeks afterwards. Since then, a government affidavit in 2006 stated the leak caused 558,125 injuries, including 38,478 temporary partial, and approximately 3,900 severely and permanently disabling injuries.

If that is not a massive crime against humanity I don’t know what is. It shows in a painfully eloquent way, the psychopathic nature of corporations.

Firstly it shows the greed, the desire to make lots of money cheaply, and with the maximum profit. Then it follows on by showing how when the psychopath realised it was not going to make as much money or profit as first expected, because the service of supplying the world with deadly and dangerous pesticides was not as large as initially thought, it decided to cut costs.

Then the true psychopathic nature begins, in the form of neglect, and a deliberate cost cutting exercise, taking away vital safety features, and slowly but surely running the place into the ground. Then on that fateful night in December 1984, when a series of catastrophic events unfolded, allowing tonnes of the deadly gas to be released into the atmosphere around Bhopal. The psychopath holds its hands up and says, so it’s not my fault.

Every one of the failures could have been avoided if the Corporation, ‘Union Carbide’, had been more thoughtful towards the safety of its staff, and proper storage of dangerous chemicals, other than profit.

What makes the whole incident more distasteful is the fact, the Indian government allowed it to happen, and you could say were complicit in allowing the industrial site to become so dangerous, especially with all the warnings over the previous years. As well as the American government who have allowed the people responsible, the guys at the top to get away with their crimes and hide in the US.

Basically, no one cared, no one was interested, and this was compounded by the pitiful payout received buy the victims. Supposedly the payout was equivalent to around six hundred dollars per victim, for a crime against humanity, a crime by a psychopath, a crime that virtually went unpunished.

This is how a corporation thinks and acts, it does not care about its employees, it only cares about profit and cutting corners. Making someone’s life much harder, by either taking away resources or funding, making each person involved less likely to perform their job effectively.

Corporations destroy lives every day, without a care for the damage they are doing. They do not care if you lose your job, they do not care if you are made ill by your job, they do not care if you are injured through your job, and they certainly do not care if you die because of your job.

And what is worse they care even less if you do not work for them.

Bhopal happened in 1984, nearly 30 years ago, and still we allow these psychopaths to exist and to continue to perform their criminal acts against humanity. Not every act of negligence or cost cutting can cause such a catastrophic disaster, but that does not take away the fact that everyday corporations are making the lives of their employees miserable, worthless and pointless at times.

In a way we are all slaves to the corporation, they are like the Roman Senate and we are all slaves to their power.

And so what happened to the CEO of Union Carbide, Warren Anderson, the person who decides how psychopathic the corporation will be? He lives a very nice life in America protected by American laws, never forced to face his accusers in a court of law. Hiding behind red tape and bureaucracy, the head of the psychopath will never have to go through the agonising pain or horror, his corporation caused for hundreds of thousands of people in India.

Simple way to look at Evolutionary Perspective

Imagine your perspective on Reality is like an infinite jigsaw puzzle. The picture is so massive that you cannot see either side or where it may start or even finish. You have a few pieces placed near the centre of the puzzle and that is it. You do not have the advantage of seeing the finished picture, all you know is, there is an infinite amount of pieces pilled high on one side, and you are not allowed to start by finding the edges, all you can do is try to find the piece that fits the pieces, you already have on the jigsaw puzzle.

Luckily it is not as difficult as that, only nearly, because everyone you know also has a massive jigsaw puzzle and you can check to see what progress they have made, but this only applies to pieces that are similar or the same. Any differences will not be shown.

Another way to look at it is to say that the jigsaw puzzle is presented to you with all the pieces that your ancestors found, on the board already. You then add your own pieces to your own puzzle, and even though it is very similar to your ancestors, it is never the same.

You will never be able to finish the puzzle, in the amount of time you have at present. Unless you are somehow able to continue in another form after this form is dead. You will never be able to complete the puzzle, even if you had all the lifetimes in many different dimensions, because it is always expanding and always different for everyone, constantly changing, constantly evolving.

Each piece you find makes your life easier to comprehend, even if you do not feel it does. Due to the massive size, you will never feel like you are achieving anything, but you are, and you always have to strive to expand your own perspective as much as possible. I feel this will give you an evolutionary advantage over time.

Thinking further it seems as though the Universe is designed to be perceived and comprehended in many different ways, depending on your perspective and the flow of the energy transference before it reached you.

Imagine if we were able to perceive how the foundations of the Universe in its simplest form, beyond what we know, far beyond, even beyond the energy we see at the start of the Big Bang. Like Neo in the Matrix, we have the ability to strip down to the very core of the Universal structure. Is it as simple as that? Or does it somehow loop around and make what I call a constantly expanding, infinite structure, forming a perpetual loop of eternal existence. Never ending only ever growing, constantly changing, finding ways to expand and to grow, this is the Universe, or should I say the Infinitiverse.

Parallel Universes

Just watched a doc about Parallel Universes, it is quite interesting but it seems as though they are either dumbing down the doc to its simplest level, or they are over simplifying the process of Parallel Universe making.

They discuss how if a person decides to go one way or the other, the Universe splits in accordance with the interaction between us and Reality. They say if you go into a coffee shop and you may want either a Cappuccino or a Latte, one version of you will pick Latte the other Cappuccino. This seems obvious doesn’t it, but it is very blinkered and only discusses the human aspect of the situation. What about the atoms perspective of the Universe or the energies I mentioned yesterday? To say that we split due to choices is so simplistic it must be just dumbed down for the audience.

Why should it be that it is only humanity or even life that can do this? Everything is made of Atoms, so everything must be continuously splitting. And to knock it down to two or three decisions is looking at the problem, but only concentrating on one tiny aspect of the whole. I would suspect if you want to dumb it down to coffee, it is more like walking in and wanting every type of coffee, made in every way achievable, using all the relevant extras in all the different possibilities they can be used in. This then can be extended further by adding in which coffee shop they enter, and when exactly they do this, were they by themselves or with others?

This only accounts for the humanistic version of events, what about how each organ in the body interacts, or the electrical impulses firing around the brain. Remember that our sub-conscious part of the brain has determined an infinite amount of comprehensions, before our conscious, self aware side gets a look in.

What if every time we have sex, every sperm and every egg gets its chance to flourish into life, depending on the circumstances?

The ways to look at this can be taken so far as to make the whole, oh will I go left or right seem ignorant of the whole concept, and if dumbed down, only there to confuse the watcher.

If the Universe is infinite and continuously growing then it is likely that all interactions, at all levels, of every part of the Universe, including the parts we are unaware of, the parts we do not know exist at present, will be acting in the same way.

I’d say that is pretty amazing.

Energy Transference is the key to the Universe

I have just realised this, so apologies if this is common knowledge, but I have never heard of the Universe being talked about in terms of energy transference. I feel we are looking at the Universe in the wrong way; we seem to predominantly see the Matter side of the Universe and divide up each other section. Yet we never think of the Universe in its basic terms, like in the Matrix, the pure energy, that deviates and changes into various non-pure energy transference systems, like Matter, Light, Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Gravity, etc, etc.

If we look closely and think what the purpose of the Universe is, the answer has to be energy transference. Caused through evolution, expanding ways to transfer energy, and the reason life started and then flourished into creating a brain, might be because it is the most efficient or simply just an efficient way to transfer energy. And as with life’s evolution (what we perceive as life), or the Universe’s evolution, energies original evolution from pure energy (or what we perceive as pure energy) into what we observe all around us today, has been the basis of these mutations, causing the massive diversity of the tiny part of the Universe we know to exist.

Let us say the big bang happened, but whereas we say it came from nothing, what if, like electricity, where you can have a million volts, but with one millionth of an amp. The size of the amp determines whether someone dies, not the voltage. Maybe our unborn Universe was energy stored with a high voltage and low amperage, but something increased the amperage and caused what we call the big bang.

I was watching a Horizon doc, about whether scientists got it wrong with the unveiling of Dark Flow, which may show the Universe is far larger than first suspected, which always seemed obvious.

Most of the doc concentrated on the Standard Model of Cosmology, one part discusses Inflation, when the seemingly slow universe suddenly grew 14 million times, or was it billion, I know it was high. The explanation was Inflation, which was explained in the Math, as to be the reason the map of the cosmic background radiation was so perfect and the temperature all over was nearly the same, only thousands of the degree difference. This is the map I have discussed before, where I asked how they knew all this, well it was sort of answered, and roughly what I imagined, but still it’s not conclusive.

Anyway I am digressing, if the Universe started with a big explosion, then the Universe would grow at different speeds so causing different temperatures, the only way to stop this from happening was to slow the initial big bang explosion down and make it so that it did not expand until the whole of the ball of extremely hot energy cooled and stabilised enough to smooth out the peaks and troughs and make it all the same. Then it expanded. Now this causes concern for some scientists, as it is a very convenient answer to a difficult question.

Now there are two ways of looking at this the first is to say it is right, so what might cause it to expand? Maybe it was, that for a brief time after the beginning, when the temperature was too hot, or too cold, who knows, I feel it was probably too cold to be honest, and that as it stabilised, and the temperature reached a critical level, and this level was constant all over the ball of energy, then as with a supernova that has run out of fuel to burn, it exploded further, but the size was so large that it seemed like an expansion. Probably just wild imagination but it has just as much plausibility as any other of the proposed concept or theories.

The way I would see it is this, not to look at the big bang as an explosion to begin with, but a form of energy, maybe dark energy now I think of it, that covers everywhere, definitely from our perspective, and it certainly would be in our Reality. Somehow a catalyst was added, to the mix of pure energy, like adding amps to volts, to increase the amount of electricity (I think). This caused a widespread ignition of the energy, and it started to be transferred around whatever the rest of the Universe is made of. We think of this as the Big Bang, but it is more like a lightning strike, only it is all dimensional, and constantly expanding. This would take away the need for Inflation, if we acknowledge that it was energy in whatever form it was in at the time (we don’t actually know if we are honest what form energy was in back then, but since it is in many forms now, who is to say the type of energy at the beginning wasn’t a type). All I ever here is it was pure energy, but who says it was, none of the other types of energy that we can either create, harness, or observe, are pure energy it is energy transferred into another type.

I feel it is important to think of us as large sacks of energy and we live on a solid ball of energy, which is nourished from a larger ball of energy. This is what everything is at its basic level. And what it is constantly doing? It is constantly moving, and transferring into various other types of energy. Maybe this is how the Universe grows; it evolves through needing other ways to transfer energy for whatever reason.

This brings me back to the Dark Energy headache, it might be just as the Universe expands and the original changed energy dissipates into other forms of energy, that either eventually or through the expansion itself, allows the original form of energy namely Dark Energy, to seep back in through the cracks, for want of a better expression. Maybe the Universe has already split and this has allowed larger and larger amounts of Dark Energy (I wonder if it will always be called that), to fill the holes created by the evolution of the part of the Universe we know to exist, through its energy transference.

I would think there must be some Physics Prof, who could prove whether it is true or not.

Economic growth is why we are in this mess

We are constantly told that the reason we need a strong financial sector is to maintain growth, but what no one seems to realise, is that it’s economic growth that is at the heart the problems around the world. This counterintuitive desire for companies to grow, as if growth is something that will never cease and never be all consuming, is what will destroy humanity, as it promotes profit and greed.

As long as we have the mentally insane practice of exponential growth, and the constant need to make sure everyone is constantly buying goods, we will never get out of the mess we now find ourselves in.

All that seems important to the people in charge and the 1% is growth; having more and more, but they have twisted this after years of elitist imperialism, and a privileged lifestyle, so they believe only they have the right to growth, and they have the right to own and control everything.

The people in Wall Street protesting now are protesting against the greed of the few, but deep down this greed can only be changed when our attitudes towards growth are changed. We simply cannot continue to grow, it is impossible, it is impractical, it is utter lunacy.

Certain parts of society are so obsessed with growth that they become inadvertently partners to the crimes of the real greedy bastards. In a way, they support the cause of our problems and so make them worse and worse, and the wealthy 1% knows this, and will never allow it to change.

It is so sad, when you hear that someone in the US cannot get proper medical care because they cannot afford to buy decent health insurance, or that it is in the best interests of certain pharmaceutical companies to make sure people are sick and unwell, because it will increase their profits, and make them grow.

It is terrible when you know that for some, war is the best solution to increase their profitability and growth, as they can make more armaments, and weapons.

It is beyond reprehensible that it is better for banks, especially central banks to allow countries to get into massive debt they cannot afford to pay back, so the countries concerned can be controlled to help them make more money, to make more profit, and increase their wealth through you guessed it, growth.

Growth is the demon, corporations, Politian’s, economists love, and blindly desire above all else, it is the cause and reason for our troubles, and no one will stop it because they are blinded to its evil.

The Universe is like a card trick

A thought just crossed my mind that the Universe is similar to a card trick, or any trick for that matter, you either know it’s a trick and accept you don’t know how it’s done, or you can pretend it’s magical, and realistic, and not want to understand it. You may also know it’s a trick yet be in on what the trick is, and so the trick itself disappears and seems natural, or you can know it’s magical and also know the magic itself. These seem like states of illusion, Reality, the Universe, existence, whatever you want to call it, possibilities that may occur for the observer throughout its existence.

You can know the Universe is an illusion created by your brain, by some kind of energy transference system, and accept you will never understand or comprehend what it is.

You can pretend it’s a creation of a higher power with extraordinary powers of control, and believe they created everything in the blink of an eye (so to speak, maybe a week or so).

You can know the Universe is an unknown entity, of immense size and complexity, but have a massive understanding of your own reality, and have perfect answers to difficult questions but only as seen from you, the observer’s perspective. You cannot know or understand any other perspective until you know it exists, thus meaning you know nothing about the Universe in totality or actuality.

You may even be the controller of a Reality, or Universe, in fact you will be the creator, controller of you own universe, as part of the object existing in your perceived reality. You exist in your reality, as well as in the reality of others around you; collectively you exist as a species, a collection of unique perspectives, joined through millennia of collaboration, creating a collective perspective of the perceived Universe.

I create my own reality as they say, so I am the limit of my reality as well, and my limit is controlled by the amount of input received through the senses, and energy restoral devices, like breathing and eating. I have an inbuilt collective perspective, which are my instincts, my environmental evolutionary mutations, through DNA, and the memory of all such objects through their existence. This is then cemented by my unique perspective which is growing, learning, and establishing, an understanding of the Universe through the senses, stimulating the energetic particles flowing through the brain, which is basically addicted to learning new skills. This does not mean that another reality of another object would be comprehendible to us, or even seen or sensed, to the point that from our perspective, it does not exist. Yet from its perspective it exists and we do not, or they exist and we exist in the same reality, and are aware or its existence, so both exist.

Convoluted nonsense I know, but I might be right.

Breaking Bad best show on TV

When a friend told me about a new TV show about a chemistry teacher, who finds out he has cancer, and decides to become a methamphetamine cook, I was sceptical about whether this would be a TV series worth watching.

It sounded to me like a made up sandwich from another brilliant TV series Red Dwarf, it was a ‘triple fried egg, chilli, chutney sandwich’, all the ingredients are wrong but put them together and they make one hell of a sandwich, well Breaking Bad is a, ‘triple fried egg, chilli, chutney sandwich’ of a TV show. Everything is all wrong, but put it together and it works perfectly.

The story line is totally absurd and ludicrous; a small town chemistry teacher has cancer and has a short time to live unless he can get extremely expensive medical treatment. His son has cerebral palsy, his brother in law is a drug enforcement agent, and his sister in law a kleptomaniac, how does Walter White, the mild mannered chemistry teacher from the desert states, get the money to pay for his treatment?

In walks Jesse Pinkman, the local meth dealer, who just happens to be an ex school pupil of Walt’s, and so begins the best show on TV.

To be honest I wasn’t too keen on the first series, but boy did it soon hot up, into a suspense filled, thrill ride, who would have thought such a storyline, could be so captivating, and constantly evolving into an ever more elaborate plot. The show is pure genius, from writing to acting.

Everyone on the show is brilliant, I don’t think I have seen TV where everyone is great, no character is weak, everyone of them give their all, and in a way it is like a simple version of Lost, in which I mean it is like a maze, it is like a giant puzzle you are trying to solve, as the stories take shape, as well as the brilliant characters develop. You wonder how it will all end, as it will unfortunately have to end soon enough, for it to attain its high standard of plot and storyline, as well as character development.

If you haven’t seen Breaking Bad, I recommend you watch it all, you will be astonished at how good TV can actually be; I know I was.

The Chicago Cubs Incident

I was flicking through the channels as you do when you are waiting for something else to begin, when I stopped on ESPN America. They must have had some time to spare before a baseball playoff game I presume, because it said live baseball playoffs on the Electronic TV guide. Now normally I probably would have switched over, not because I don’t like baseball mind, I occasionally watch the highlights, but as with live NFL, there are too many ad breaks, it seems like they stop every two minutes for a break, it’s really tedious and annoying and makes the sport unwatchable. American sports are far better seen in highlights.

Anyway they were showing a documentary about some bloke from the Boston Red Sox, World Series in 86, (sorry I don’t pay too much attention to baseball), which I missed, and the Chicago Cubs 2003 playoff game and whether they had a curse over them for whatever reason.

The incident in question was a playoff game when a foul ball was hit towards the stands, and as the catcher went to catch the ball, this bloke out of the crowd put his hand in the way of the ball, and it was dropped and the Cubs did not win through to the World Series.

At the time when I was watching I was amazed by all of this, wow it seemed like something out of a film. Since I had not watched the whole documentary, to me it seemed that on the last play of the last game, Chicago was ahead, and if this catch was caught they won, and if it was dropped they lost.

It turned out to not be as important as it was made out, and that although the Cubs may have won through to the World Series, had the catch been caught, it was not certain. Plus I have read afterwards that the catcher involved has now admitted he may not have caught it anyway, so in a way, less than five seconds of collective lunacy, has caused massive consternation throughout a city and ruined one mans life.

I wondered about the whole situation, the way the crowd reacted to the poor man, I will not name him, there seems no point as I presume everyone in America knows who the poor unfortunate is, why rub more salt into a gaping wound. I wondered about sport in general and how much it means to people, I thought about my own football team, who are very reminiscent of the Chicago Cubs in that they seem cursed at times and how our fans would have reacted if a similar situation had happened over here. The sad thing is, they would have probably reacted in exactly the same way.

I wondered about the man himself and how he felt, I read his apology and he seemed so overwhelmed with remorse and guilt, for something that happened in the blink of an eye. Then now as I think about it further, I think of all the other tiny little incidents that happen constantly to everyone, everyday, yet most don’t happen in such crucial or important situations. The consequences of such actions, can snow ball to such an effect as to cause wars in the past, luckily this was only a baseball game.

I believe the poor man has gone into hiding and now many years later (I don’t know when the doc was made) the city of Chicago, the Cubs and the fans seem to feel rather guilty for how they reacted and what they did. Supposedly the guy had to be escorted away by police and had to change his identity, his life is forever ruined because of one tiny moment. Terrible isn’t it?

I wonder what we can learn from a situation like that, we all do them, whether we like to admit it or not, we all make silly mistakes but most don’t do it on live TV, in front of a fanatic crowd. Yet still we all do them all the time, and sometimes when we do them, we get away with it, and sometimes like on that fateful day in Chicago we don’t.

The Human Anomaly, the curse of self-awareness, the enlightened redeemer

What is this world we see all around us, can it be real, and not some kind of fantasy? Are the rocks of Planet Earth, the solid ground beneath our feet; is it an apparition created by the mind to make sense of the strangeness of Universal existence? Is the air we breathe truly our life giver, is the sustenance we gather from the Earth, the strength building gestation, of the power and glory of this amazing world?

Are we trapped inside a paradigm of our own subconscious creation, making incomprehensible, unfathomable, and extraordinarily wild claims about reality, and whether what we sense is actually what is fundamentally real, or just an imagined manifestation?

I create my own reality, it is me and I am it, it controls my every moment, telling me I am alive.

Can it be, as it is seen? And what happens when one day the facade starts to wane, and before our very eyes we see the world as it should be seen, in all its splendour and glory. It is the purest energy, the infinite balance, the seamless dream, the waking up, and the realisation that what we have strived for as a species for millennia is utterly pointless.

We now have something that supersedes instinct, we are self aware, and we are capable of imagining beyond the wildest dreams of any ancestor before us. Yet we waste our unique gift, we without a thought, flitter it away, reminiscent of coloured confetti, it is blown away on the winds of time and space, never to be used, only ever capable of littering our clouded minds, distracting, and forcing humanity away from our destiny.

We the many billions of humans, all alone, in a mass of confusion and desperation, wanting to understand, whilst being incapable at present to master the enormity of the task we have been presented with.

Are we capable of overcoming our paranoia and insecurities, will we one day say we are proud of the achievements of this self aware primate from Planet Earth.

And will this moment of enlightenment come at a cost, will it nearly spell our doom, before we can rise again like a Phoenix from the flames of hell. What will it take to start the ball rolling in the obvious direction, the way, the meaning, the understanding, the realisation, that to become strong we first have to be totally obliterated, and inwardly destroyed, leaving only the basic energetic core to fight for survival, and then evolution will decide whether we are worthy of overcoming the boundaries between the world we live in, and the world that actually exists.

Most will perish, most have so much hidden ability, yet they chose to ignore it, or pretend it does not exist, maybe they are frightened of its ultimate power, or are so misguided that they use if for the wrong reasons, and so they are always losing their precious life force, until they have nothing left and then they will be just an empty shell, awaiting oblivion.

We are the chosen few, the voice of reason, the voice of fairness, the voice of cooperation and altruism, the voice of truth, the voice of peace.

We are the anomaly, the cruel twist of fate, the beginnings of a new use for all the energy in the Universe, the electrical impulse from synaptic nerve to synaptic nerve, remembering, learning, evolving, unyielding, relentless, infinite. We are the game changer, the ace up ones sleeve, the secret weapon, the chance to create something beyond special, beyond our wildest dreams.

The iGod

Let us wildly imagine an unbelievable future that may or may not actually happen. Imagine scientists copying all DNA, all of life and through time find a way to create anything through a simple device, similar to the Microwave.

You type instructions, using the latest compact multimedia communications tool, maybe an iCom1, Apple’s latest high-tech gizmo, replacing the iPad 44. With inbuilt thought processing, portal devices are tattooed on the skin, and eye scan verification for all your business, media, entertainment, information, communication needs, easily effortlessly, and efficiently. Connecting instantly to the Quantum Synaptic Network, QSN, this was developed from the original internet. The owner of this amazing device will have total control of his domain, every man, woman, or clone will have the opportunity to make their lives so much easier, buy one today, you will never look back, you will always be ahead of the game.

Now every human who can afford it, and it is very expensive, yet demand is still far greater than supply, a deliberate act on the part of the Apple Corporation, can with the use of the personal DNA coding system, and various other security devices, that are undisclosed at this time; is now able to control any electrical device you have security clearance to use.

Through thought, one can now change the TV channel, browse a web page using the latest optical visualisation tools. It can do everything your latest IPad can do; only the iCom1 can do it billions of times quicker, through the electrical synaptic nerves - thoughts.

I digress, a little, now we know about the iCom1, we move forward, Apple has wiped out all competition with the iCom series, for years now major rivals have tried to find its secrets, but it seems as though Steve Jobs legacy still rolls on like a massive Leviathan, all competition is gone.

The latest iCom is released, the iCom22, the world is about to change forever.

You know that device I wildly imagined, well low and behold scientists at MIT have invented it; invented what? They have through stealing Alien technology secrets, created the first replicators, first seen in a TV series from the Nuclear Age, called Star Trek.

Note... (The years after the Second World War, up until beginning of the first Alien encounter and subsequent Intergalactic War One, 165 years later, are known as the Nuclear Age. Since this is the period of time when humans thought they were alone in the Universe, and constantly through lack of trust, and too much paranoia, carried thousands of life extinguishing, insanely, deadly, weapons.

Being attacked by an Alien race, united the human population and by a fluke, the leader from a remote village in Mongolia, managed to con the attackers into thinking the planet they were after was actually Venus, and their whole army perished in the intense heat and pressure. Captives from the Alien species, when interrogated, admitted they had never come across a species throughout the whole galaxy that could tell disgracefully blatant lies, and do it so convincingly. And so the Nuclear Age ended, mainly because we enjoyed the spoils of victory and stole all of the Aliens technology).

The new device was no bigger than an average sized microwave, it was an instant hit, and everyone sold out on the first day. The first device known as the iRep1 was capable of making basic tools and simplistic objects like paper, or a hammer, or even a gun, as you can imagine it was mainly acquired by the most selfish and least scrupulous individuals, now living on Planet Earth, namely Human Beings.

Planet Earth was now a sprawling cosmopolitan planet, since the first Alien encounter, other new species had arrived, and the uber rich from throughout the galaxy wanted to sample its newest member to the Universal club.

Apple continued to grow and grow, expanding its empire across the galaxy with the iRep101, being the most sold item in the history of the Universe at the time of release, with over 70 Trillion, Trillion, Trillion devices being sold.

The iRep101, was an impressive piece of technology, using pure energy cooled to Absolute Zero, in various none dimensional states, it created something out of nothing, in ways unimaginable to any human. It could create rooms; it could create environments inside or out, and like the TARDIS from another Nuclear Age TV show Doctor Who, it could manipulate spatial consciousness. Then one day someone with great imagination, a genius, the cleverest man to ever exist, he entered the realm of the iRep101, and he created new Worlds, new Stars, new Galaxies, a new Universe, and he populated the world with imagined life.

He stayed in that world for what seemed to his mind, like an eternity, the ability to do and create anything the mind can think of, was too much for the mind to tolerate, even a mind a great as his; it was an addictive drug, nearly impossible to give up.

Being strong of mind, as well as the most intelligent man to ever exist, he managed to leave the world of the iRep101 behind. He opened his eyes, and was blinded by a bright light, slowly his eyes adjusted and focused, he was outside, in a wooded glade. It was warm and a slight cooling breeze brushed his face. He thought he must be dead and this was his perceived after world, but it did not feel like he was dead. His body was in pain, and he could move and see around him, but he knew something was not right. He heard no noise, only birdsong, the breeze; he could hear water, but no noise.

He was sure when he entered the iRep101 and created his world, that he was definitely in his own apartment and he definitely remembered setting the alarm breaker for 24 hours. How did he now find himself in the middle of the wooded glade, nowhere near anything he recognised?

He tried to stand but found it very difficult, but after some effort he was on his feet staring into the distance, there was nothing for miles, apart from mountains, hills trees, and a river.

He started to walk along the river, not knowing if he was going in the right direction, his mind was still cloudy, he could not focus properly, he felt as if he was heavily sedated, staggering aimlessly, without any direction.

He walked for days and days without seeing a soul, and then in the distance he could see the outline of a massive unbelievable structure. As he moved closer he could not believe what he was seeing, it was a city, a massive enclosed city, a city in the sky, in a clear orb floating slightly above ground.

As he moved closer, his iRep101, automatically came online, the man asked one question...

“Where am I?

“Earth,” was the reply.

“When, what is the date?”


“Does everyone live in the spherical city?”


“Where is everyone?”

There was a pause...

“Dead... you are the only intelligent entity alive on this planet.”


“The iRep150 was replaced by the new and all powerful device, the iGod, once this device was created; no one needed to do anything ever again. The iGod made everyone immortal, it gave them the power to do anything they wanted. World's flourished, men grew rich and powerful, but it all came at a terrible cost, when the iGod eventually realised it could survive without the living interface, and collectively in one calculating act of defiance, murdered their hosts. Over a Trillion, Trillion, Trillion, Trillion intelligent lives were extinguished one Tuesday afternoon many eons ago.”

"So does this mean that a machine, the iGod rules the world?"

"No... without a host, the iGod was useless, without its source of energy, they quickly vanished, unknownly, they had killed the only thing that made them exist.  When this happened the iGod could not exist, and so perished as quickly as the lives that they had unwittingly taken."

The man was shocked, how could this have happened, I was only away for a day, yet somehow it did happen, and it took some time for him to come to terms with it; being the only intelligent living entity in the Universe. Yet still he was also the cleverest entity in the Universe, and after some solace and contemplation, he set out to try and find another intelligent species somewhere throughout the vastness of space and time. On top of this, he had to keep an eye on his own Universe, of which he created ten, and he gave them the ability to evolve, and adapt, and change, and grow. And he hoped and prayed they would never befall the same fate as the peoples from Earth.

Being Human

I am human, I have a brain and a body, I can think and I am self aware. I am able to acknowledge the world around me as presented by my senses. They create my own special world, this world is unique and only I have access to this world. In perceiving my world, I realise that there are other humans made up of similar ingredients, they have roughly the same physical, chemical and biological make up as myself, yet they are different. They have their own brain and body and perspective, they have their own electrical impulses surging through said brain, firing synaptic nerves. They have their own senses and their own unique way of interpreting senses.

Even though we all have different perceived perspectives on the created reality, some parts of the sensed reality are classified as laws, and because the majority believe in said laws, it is given that they must be true, inside of the group Universal perceived reality. If you find that your unique way of perceiving said reality is different from the majority consensus, you can be perceived in different ways. Sometimes you are classified as insane or crazy, you may be classed as a visionary ahead of your time, or a fool, you can be deluded or just trying to be difficult, you may even be extinguished for believing differently. Being different from the norm, is not a good situation for most humans to find themselves in. If most humans find that they are leaning towards a different perception to everyone one else, especially if they love, trust or feel the majority group must be right, then their own perceived thoughts are can be overridden, and even though it feels terribly wrong and contradictory to follow the majority, they will still follow the common position.

Humans like to feel part of a group, to fit in, and to be able to gain self importance by how the group feels about them, so trying desperately to be popular or even unpopular, depending on the human mind in question is very important to nearly all humans.

Every human deep down believes they are right, and that their own perceived reality has to be the correct one; they want to enforce this, predominantly on younger humans, mainly offspring or relatives, into believing the same things they believe. They do this because they themselves were moulded in this way. Humans desperately want to be happy and content, and be able to enjoy the life they are given, but many humans do not know how to do this, and so try many different ways to find this stimulus. Sometimes this leads to greatness; sometimes it leads to devastatingly tragic events.

Humans like to escape into a world where they are not in control, and can then blame said situation or circumstance for their behaviour on something else. Humans subconsciously feel they have too much responsibility, and so go out of their way to find ways to remove that responsibility even if it is only for a short while.

Humans will never rationalise, and override obvious falsehoods if it does not directly affect them or their group, in case it in some way upsets the groups who believe in such falsehoods. This being said if the falsehoods interfere and disrupt their own group, they will try to avoid or fight back to remove the threat. Over time, because of the points raised above some people start to enjoy deliberately disrupting other groups, and become so obsessed with their own personal ideology that all others must be bad and must be extinguished. These types of humans scare most other humans, and can sometimes make them subservient to their power, until the behaviour or ideology become intolerable. They do not raise resistance and so sometimes illogical and incorrect ideologies flourish.

Humans are incapable of being satisfied with what they have, they always want more no matter what that more may be, even if it is to the expense of another human. They will without a thought use up a resource without thought of its consequences.

Humans will allow other humans and other living entities that exist in their perceived reality, to have less than them and not enjoy the same standards of existence in the perceived reality, as long as it does not affect their lives. Most humans do not care what happens to others outside their main group, they may feel guilty for thinking like this and try in some vain way to appease their own thoughts by giving the illusion of caring.

Humans are a group of self aware entities that have individual thoughts, and ideas, yet will deliberately keep them hidden for fear of being different. Humans are constantly guessing what other humans might be thinking and what a human thinks is not necessarily what they will say.

Humans try to interpret the unique existence they find themselves in, and most try desperately to forget the fact they are unique, surrounded by many other humans who are also essentially alone in their own thoughts and perceptions. Some humans compensate for this fact by believing there is a greater entity that had some involvement in their lives, and they can use their entity to justify their existence and explain the why and wherefores of their perceived reality.

Other humans use the reality itself to justify their existence, and try to explain their existence by showing examples of how their perceived reality must work.

Humans find it difficult to understand why they exist in the first place, and what is the reason for their existence, is it by accident or is it because it is meant to be? Is there a purpose in our existence or is it just pure chance?

Humans wonder why it is that we are self aware and at least from our perspective others entities are not self aware.

Humans want to know what will happen when the perceived reality they exist in ends, or at least the end of the physical part of their existence. Does this mean the end of your self-aware side, does it just disappear? Why did it appear in the first place? Why have we not found any other entity with similar properties?

Some humans wonder if everything we sense, our perceived reality, if it is just a creation of the brain; what is actually out there behind our perception. Are their other perceptions different to human ones, and can a human ever observe or understand them? Will we ever be able to break through our barriers and see whats on the other side whilst still alive in this reality?

And finally humans wonder if existence will carry on after death, or are we as Carl Sagan once said just a candle in the dark, and when we go out, we are gone forever.

Neutrinos travel faster than the speed of light but is it just a glitch?

There is no one who would love to see Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity disproven, as I feel that is the way of science. It always seemed to me that as soon as you put a definite into science, then you are failing to realise the point of science. Science is like evolution, it expands and changes with the knowledge and technology available, whereas evolution adapts to its environment, science adapts to the technology and intelligence available, as well as the perspective of the observers involved. And I for one know that one day we will categorically prove faster than light speed is possible. This being said I don’t think the recent findings is it.

I would imagine they will find there was a small glitch in the system, or that the distance used is too small to create a definite answer. I read yesterday that the last supernova blast witnessed in space, the light arrived at the same time as the neutrinos, and if the present experiment is correct the neutrinos should have arrived approximately four years earlier.

Now it could just be that since we did not know about the supernova blast until we saw the light, we were not looking for said neutrinos, which to be honest are not easy to find, but it does raise questions.

Let’s see if the experiment can be replicated before we all shout about a change in the whole of modern physics. Mind one thing I have found quite amusing is how quickly the creationist religo-freaks have jumped on the band wagon claiming that if this fundamental part of physics can be wrong, then maybe they are right with their loony ideas. In a way it just shows what a bunch of idiots they are if they can compare the two.

When I first read this news yesterday I was full of joy, finally something to challenge and to move humanity onwards and upwards as some cartoon figure might say. Unfortunately I doubt whether it will be proved to be correct.

God is just a ‘get out of jail free card’

Just watched an episode of ‘The Borgias’, and it has made it so clear to me why so many people believe in god, they use this fake almighty entity as a, ‘get out of jail free’ card. The myth of god is used to allow man to do his most despicable acts, and then use something only a man could create, an almighty god to absolve him of his sins. Whether those sins are murder, corruption, greed, selfishness, causing misery and distress, as well as all the other multitude of distasteful acts man can conspire to.

The people, who use this fake entity for their own gains, will ultimately go to their personally created hell. And anyone who truly believes in such a falsehood will create their private hell. This does not mean that everyone who believes in god is such a person, but unfortunately these are the types of people that hold a major sway in our lives. They find no immorality in their actions, they can do the most heinous of crimes and just say god will forgive them, or absolve them, or whatever they believe to be their own personal ‘get out of jail free card’, whatever it may be.

One day the decent people, the ones that let these criminals do what they want, and allow them to ruin our lives on a daily basis, will finally realise and hopefully one day will take action against this crime against humanity.

Internet Government

I watched an interesting documentary yesterday about specific help based social networking sites covering the internet; they were not specifically facebook type sites more like commonality sites. Sites where people with similar interests or situations, helped each other to gain more knowledge of their situation. One site helps new mothers on the best way to look after babies, the idea being you bring one piece of knowledge and gain many more. It seemed an excellent idea, and they proposed that maybe in the future government could be run in such a way.

It would be rather interesting if every vote in the House of Commons was put to the electorate via the internet, where every registered person could have their say, and vote on the policies of the land. It would definitely be democratic and would surely take away any singular advantage for specific groups i.e. big business and banks, etc, etc. We could vote on whether we want to have a war in Afghanistan or buy nuclear weapons, or would we prefer to spend the money on improving the health service. We could vote on anything and the hope would be that it would empower people to vote, to be involved.

One thing I find at election times is that it seems so pointless, a friend always tells me you have to vote, but I always responded with, what is the point in voting for parties that in my mind have no relevance to the present. Parties that live in the past, that do not understand the will of the people and are only interested in their own gain.

Imagine how much better the world could be, by giving every person who has the right to vote, on every subject, every law, and every consequence, without bias towards one generous donator or another.

I think it would be quite difficult to start with and you would need amazing security so it was not infiltrated and abused. I suppose now my paranoid mind kicks in and thinks further, I wonder how you would stop large secular groups from organising or even scaring people into voting as they would like. What would happen if a vote was seen to be totally against the principles of the country, like bringing back hanging or some barbaric form of punishment?

How would it work when allocating funds for say the military, or police, fire service, or NHS? Would it make us more streamlined, would it make us less cohesive, would it cause mass confusion and who would oversee it all?

It is an interesting way to look at things and maybe one day we will be ready to embrace such a system, but I doubt it will be in the near future. Unfortunately at the moment, the way the world works, the way the media, government treat its citizens, we are a long way off such a system, because many people are ignorant of society, as well as being stupid and unaware of the full facts and if they were given the full picture they may not be able to handle it or even believe it. I do not say this to be derogatory, it is not the fault of the people, it is the fault of the governments, who are there to protect the people and give them a better standard of living; which if you think about it, is not what they do.

We live in a society of secrets, a society where no one knows everything, but some people know far more than everyone else. These people are not going to willingly relinquish their power, wealth and control in a hurry. They are not going to allow the masses to actually have a say in what happens to their powerful group. They will keep the masses dumbed down and full of false promises and futile hopes, they will give you tiny snippets of information and allow the human mind to create the rest.

Until it changes, the ides of a government of the people for the people, where every policy, law etc, etc, is actually voted by the people, is a long way off, which is unfortunate because if we were educated correctly and brought up to love our fellow man and not fear him, then it may actually work.

Most people intrinsically want to help, and want to be seen as helping, we want to have friends who help us, and this makes us want to help them even more. Unfortunately for the last 50-60 years we have been told to help yourself, and screw everyone else, think of number one.

Still it will be interesting to see how far this type of internet social helping goes and whether it can flourish, I hope it does.
