Licking my wounds

The simple fact is, if you throw spears at people who try to help, you will reach a point at which there will be no more offers of help from anybody.

The Holographic Universe

Each sentient creature lives in a universe of their own, sharing that universe with the reflections of other sentient creatures beyond their own universe.

Is the universe of a given creature generated by their own awareness? or something beyond themselves?

Does a given creature exercise supremacy in their own universe?

A couple of thought experiments

Imagine yourself in space, far enough above the plane of the ecliptic that you can see the Earth majestically turning beneath your feet.

Now, where you are in space, is it day or night?

Imagine that your entire world, everything that is, can be mapped onto the surface of a ball, and you are standing on that ball. You can explore the surface of the ball in any direction, but the further you travel, the smaller you become in relation to the size of the ball.

Is it possible to explore the entire surface of the ball?

Childhood's End

Someday we are going to discover that we are not the Cat's Meow of the universe, we are going to wake up in a world that is acknowledged to be only one of many occupied worlds in the Milky Way galaxy. Perhaps this will happen in my lifetime, perhaps not. But I am certain it will happen. When it does, what will it mean for you? I recommend you start thinking about this today.

Yes, the study of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and extraterrestrial biological entities (EBEs) attracts a huge number of people with strange beliefs. But for many of those people, their beliefs are no stranger than the experiences that led them to those beliefs. If the emotionally and mentally unstable were the only examples we had, we would be justified in doubting their veracity, but I urge you to set aside an hour or two to listen to some of the presentations recorded by the Disclosure Project, presentations by civilian and military aircrew, air traffic controllers, NASA retirees, and even NASA astronauts. If you have only a few minutes, the physicist, Stanton Friedman, deserves listening to on the subject of how information has been withheld and knowledge denied by the United States government.

Yes, some of the things that the U.S. government has concealed were matters of national security and secrecy is justified, but not I think, for all cases. Change is coming and we need to be ready.

Night, Day, Before, After

From the surface of the planet, it is undeniable that day follows night. But from as little as one astronomical unit above the plane of the ecliptic, it becomes clear that day and night are the product of the planet's shape, something experienced only by the inhabitants on the surface of the planet.

If you can grasp that concept, you are ready to proceed to the beginning of understanding what eternity is:

There is no then, no now. There only is. When a Christian prays in the words of the Lord's Prayer "Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven" they are asking that the completed, perfected state of the eternal kingdom be reflected on Earth. Now, is it possible, for a domain changing with time to truly reflect the changeless, perfect eternal? how might this prayer be answered?

What is the Internet good for?

I don't suppose many people have ever asked themselves that. But I find myself increasingly including links to other people's articles, or sites that I have found interesting, and which deal with the topic under discussion.
In ways never before possible, the Internet offers the means to share, and debate knowledge.
On my own blog I present musical resources in the hope of encouraging readers to find their own musical voice, but in the telling of my stories, I also try to include as much relevant background information as possible.
Yes, there is a lot of unreliable information out there, but if we compare notes, and share what we have found to be true, perhaps in time we can outweigh the poorer-quality information. And have fun doing it, after all, human beings are nothing if not sociable creatures. And I believe that is one of the reasons sharing information is so important to us.
Which came first, sharing knowledge, or sociability? I think one provided the means to the other.
