The Life of Riley

dancing_at_the_beach-1280

Before the Lords of Tryptophan compel us to kneel in genuflection at the altar of gluttony, I wanted to take a moment to wish my American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving.  It is sometimes rather difficult for me to accept the imposed holiday memes at face value and not delve into for example, the tremendous suffering that the industrial farming practices inflict on the animals fattened for the feast. However, suitability of time and place is something that I’ve been learning.  A poorly timed polemic is merely a wasted opportunity to successfully convince another about the merits of a position. Thus, we’ll save the remedying of historical misconceptions for another day.

So for what it’s worth Argonauts, I hope that you use the day as an opportunity to reflect upon your lives. Embrace cheer and challenge alike as only through the latter do we experience personal growth. And when it’s all said and done, life is but a vehicle for interior transformation. Whether you’re wandering lonely as a cloud or spending the day with friends and family, SMILE, LAUGH and behold the majesty of the mechanism by which the sun greeted you as you awoke (or stayed up from the night before – hey, no judgment here).

Whether Thanksgiving or Day of Mourning, embrace the day folks.

One love,

HJ

In FLUX

In FLUX

All death is birth into a new form; all birth the death of the previous form. There is properly no existence but only “becoming” i.e. a continual passing from one existence into another. Each moment is the union of opposites, being and non-being; the life of the world is maintained by conflict. Each particle of matter is in continual movement. All things are in flux like the waters of a river. One thing alone is permanent, the Universal Law which reveals itself in this movement. This is Zeus, the all-pervading reason of the world. It is only the illusion of the senses which make us fancy that there are such things as permanent substances.

Sunday Matinee – Thunderbolts of the Gods

When the fundamental assumptions of an existing theory cannot be reconciled with newly observed evidence, a new vantage point must be considered.  The vast magnetic fields discovered in space as a result of technological advancements have been problematic for cosmologists working with a gravity-centric model of the cosmos. Astronomers working only with gravitational equations could not have anticipated the pervasive magnetic fields discovered, considering that such fields arise only in the presence of an electric current.  The second half of the 20th Century has also yielded insight into the role of plasma in the universe that has changed our concept of space entirely.

It seems like even in the fields of cosmology and astronomy the rigidity of perspective has become antithetical to progress.  The electric universe does not replace the gravity centric model, but adds the essential role of charged particles in motion. Electric beings in an electric universe, hmmm…

Richard Dawkins takes a trip…

Richard Dawkins takes a trip...

Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said, “Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the esteemed scientist, “What would you like to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said Mr. Dawkins. “How about why there is no underlying intelligence in the universe, evolution is an entirely random occurrence and consciousness is an epi-phenomenon of matter?” as he smirked smugly.

“Okay,” she said. “Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?”

The uncompromising positivist, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.” To which the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss the Universal Mind underpinning nature, the guided process of evolution, and that which eludes the experimental method, when you don’t know sh*t?”

And then she went back to reading her book.

One love,

HJ

O.K. wave function collapsers, check this out.  I was searching around the entrance to the rabbit hole in the wee hours of the morning using only the Northern Lights to illuminate my way and stumbled across the following:

http://phys.org/news/2013-11-neck-tattoo-patent-motorola.html

Read the patent application HERE

If you’re on dial up here’s the Cliff Notes version – Motorola filed a patent for an electronic tattoo to be placed on a person’s neck that acts as a “mobile microphone, lie detector and digital display.”

The skin-born device is described in the patent filing as “A system for providing auxiliary voice input to a mobile communication device (MCD), comprising: an electronic skin tattoo capable of being applied to a throat region of a body; the electronic skin tattoo further comprising: a microphone embedded in the electronic skin tattoo; a transceiver that enables wireless communication with the mobile communication device; a power supply configured to receive energizing signals from a personal area network associated with the MCD; a controller communicatively coupled to the power supply; and wherein the electronic skin tattoo is capable of receiving an initialization signal at the controller and from the MCD to initiate reception of an audio stream picked up from the throat region of the body for subsequent audio detection by the MCD under an improved signal-to-noise ratio than without employing the electronic skin tattoo.” The skin tattoo could communicate with a phone or other device by Bluetooth, NFC or other wireless protocols.

Pretty wild stuff huh?

An electronic tattoo that provides a continuous communication channel with the Matrix. And remember, a transceiver is capable of both transmitting and receiving data.

Is this Orwellian nightmare inching ever closer or what? Talk about getting your ideas from someone else. For the John of Patmos fans out there, we can take this even one step further.

But wait, who owns Motorola?

On May 22, 2012, almost 3 weeks after the patent was filed our friends at Google acquired Motorola Mobility.

Hmmm, so what?

Take a gander at the Google Chrome logo.

chrome-logo-1301044215

Ever notice the three sixes incorporated into the design? Talk about the mark of the beast! Imagine a population with this tattoo conducting solely bitcoin transactions. I guess no man may buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. lol

(Insert ominous Tubular Bells music here!)

I couldn’t make this stuff up.

One love,

P.S. Before the Fundamentalists out there start opening seals and beholding horses, these are tenuous connections forged for your entertainment and not prima facie evidence of anything.

Sunday Matinee: Resonance – Beings of Frequency

This is a rather interesting film exploring the impact of the exponential increase in electromagnetic radiation within the biosphere. Do cell phone towers, wi-fi, etc. affect us in any way? The impact of omnipresent cell phone radiation on both non-human and human life is presented with some rather compelling evidence indicating the presence of an adverse relationship. The children born in the post wi-fi and smart-phone era are actually the first generation in a longitudinal study exploring causality between prolonged exposure to microwave radiation and adverse health effects (tumors, auto immune conditions, developmental disorders, autistic spectrum disorders, etc.)

What impact does the perpetual influence of wi-fi have on a child’s brain that is just beginning to forge connections and develop its neural circuitry? Time will tell.

I shared this video because I think some light needs to be shone on this often glossed-over aspect of our unyielding progress charge. The media silence should come as no surprise, and with the incestuous relationship between academia and industry, hey we’re still debating human impact to atmospheric CO2 levels.

As with anything else I share folks, caveat redemptor.

One love,
HJ
