A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Public Service Announcement


14 April 2014

Visible is moving home April 15th 2014.

At the same time, all his blogs - including this one, will be relocating, too; this means that soon this page will disappear - as will all other pages on Vis' sites. The move (the blogs' move that is, not lord Visible's) is expected to take somewhere between 3 and 8 Earth days so should complete some time between 18 and 25 April 2014.

The blogs will remain accessible however, on their old blogspot.com URLS, and here is where you are going to find them - so please bookmark the following links!


Reflections in a Petri Dish
Smoking Mirrors
Visible Origami


Please also be aware that although all the existing blogs' content will remain accessible, many image links and other bits and pieces may look a bit tatty for the duration of the move (not that anyone visits Vis blogs for pretty pictures anyway, but it's just polite to let you know)



Thank you for bearing with us during the move!

What's it all About, Visible?

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

Some truly freaky things are happening around here. As I mentioned, I wrote an Origami but did not post it. I went to finish it off just now and it's gone. That has never happened before. It is mystifying. Then, about 20 minutes ago, I went and made a comment at Petri Dish, hoping to defuse a megalomanical outbreak and I went through the comment and edited it and then I posted it. I took some time editing it, there were a number of mistakes. I went to the comment to check it out and it was just as it had been before I edited it. That has never happened before either.

Today, I went and took care of some important details, concerning getting my visa for India, because I go to Munich tomorrow and stay overnight too, hopefully I accomplish this aspect of what is proving to be a complex and now expensive endeavor to get done. Then I find out that I have to have a return ticket from India, or they won't let me in and now I have to mention that to the person who bought me my arrival ticket and my initial stay there that this is the situation. Not anticipating this, I went and made some expenditures, not realizing what should have been obvious to me. I hear God laughing in the background. He was insistent with me over the last few weeks, telling me he was going to take care of everything and what that has amounted to is my having to jump through incredible hoops; the like of which I haven't seen before.

A few days ago, I sent an email to the Indian consulate, which has actually outsourced their visa department to some corporation. India is outsourcing? Is there a little irony here? I give my phone number and the most unlikely thing happens. They actually call me, in fact, the same fellow called me twice to drill into me the requirements for my visa. I have never had a bureaucracy respond in this fashion. Meanwhile, on the first call, the fellow tells me that now I have to come to Munich because it takes 2 weeks to do it by mail. I pointed out that I had 3 weeks. He said we can't guarantee it. So now I have to travel 550 kilometers and stay in a hotel to get this done. I'm guessing that God is watching my reactions to see how I respond to this (poorly so far- grin).

I'm only listing a few of the incredible events that have happened in the last days, since Thursday, since Thanksgiving, when I was told that everything would change now and told that my ease of passage was going to be incredible and uncanny. As it so happens, a certain side of the progress of these days has been remarkable. Some things have happened that were seriously unlike what I am used to. Everything is topsy turvy. Perhaps I should back up and, as much as possible, tell the story about last Thursday. I'm going to leave some significant features out of the tale, because they reflect on me in a way that I would rather avoid being responsible for and if the situation goes sideways on me, I will look like an idiot. Now, arguably, I have some experience at that ...but I'm also more seasoned than I have ever been and God said, “Go ahead and wait to post that Origami, it doesn't make any difference. You'll see, won't you”? I do agree with that. I was also informed that it doesn't matter anyway because he is about to start doing things in the lives of different readers and that will take care of whatever reticence I have on the matter.

I'm going to send Sim some photos and hopefully he can put them up. One is Poncho and the others are The Little Guy and Lilly Nelson and a shot of me and Susanne's mom, Liselotte. As those of you familiar with the story know, I found this wet bedraggled pooch when he was 5 weeks old, hardly hanging on, living on olives that had fallen to the ground. If you have ever eaten an olive off of a tree, you know how they taste. I couldn't figure it out, why his shit was so black, until I saw him under one of my trees eating olives. It was all he knew.

Take a look at him today.

Look at this prince of dogs who, when there is an altercation among other dogs, steps in and parts them and has proven to be one of the smartest dogs I have ever seen. This is what comes of stopping your car when you don't want to and taking some creature into the car that doesn't look like anything at all. The whole of him fit in my two hands when first we met and those who read here will remember the story of my looking for my glove and him going into the other room and bringing it me. At that time he was about 2 months old. He's done nothing but blow people's minds since. I wanted to keep him so bad but I knew he was not for me and he has wound up in the hands of some really fine people who know a great deal more about dogs than I do.


My friends. These are trying times. Yesterday the reader, 'insiam' got very angry with me because I have a link to Jim Corr's site on my pages. He is angry and offended because Jim supports Alex Jones. The God Honest Truth is that I knew nothing about this. I met Jim about 5 years ago when he flew down to see me in Italy. We spent a fantastic few days together, just talking. The simpatico between us was amazing. We've all had those experiences where we hit it off with someone. It's a nice thing to have happen. Then, a couple of years ago, he called me on the phone and said that he just needed to talk to me. We spoke on the phone for about 20 minutes, talking about his family, his son and a few other things. That is all the contact I have had with him. I haven't been by his site in I can't remember when. I'm just too busy to go many places, besides the places where I get my links. I may have had one other contact with Jim, I think it had something to do with supporting him in some effort. My memory isn't clear about that.

Well, 'insaim' wanted to make his objections a public thing. I wondered why he didn't email me. He's been around for years and you would think some kind of virtual friendship might have come to pass in that time. I responded a little briskly because I was offended at this treatment and can't understand why someone would hold me accountable for someone else's opinion, which I knew nothing about. This morning I find two separate comments about my being a fraud and what lickspittles my readers are; that I was a liar among other things. What I have stated here in this posting is the truth. I haven't lied about anything. Now this fellow is rip snorting pissed at me and I have no idea of what to do. I did not post his comments because I know many readers would have taken him to task and we don't need that kind of stuff here.

I've been the object of some number of resentful behavior on some several person's part. A lady, who used to be a prominent commenter here, decided to lambaste me about being a dirty old man and launched into a nasty series of statements whose intent was to diminish me because I mentioned Kirsten Stewart, in whom I have no interest whatsoever. I objected to this treatment and she took her ball and went home. That was very strange because I thought we were good friends. It was mystifying. At one point Gardener wanted to visit with her and asked me to make that request of her. She very strongly said “No” and it gave me the eerie feeling that something more than I knew about might be going on with this person. I'll probably never know what that was all about.

I like 'insiam', no doubt more than he likes me. I defended him when that glitch about so much poetry happening here occurred. It is so odd that only a few days later, he would turn on me with a vengeance. I'm really open to being criticized, if the criticism is valid and I can make the connection through being honest with myself and being able to admit somethings as true. I can't do anything about being slammed for something I knew nothing about. Maybe Jim just doesn't know. I will let him know but this whole thing has come at a cost.

There are a number of people who resent me for all the good things that people say about me. They feel like I don't deserve it and need to be taken down a few notches. It's God that makes this happen, not me. He told me that directly. He said, “It should be obvious that it is me making this happen. There are few people on the internet, with actual intelligence, who garner the support you get. I want this and what I want is immediately so, no matter what it is. I'm going to do a whole lot more than that with you, so, brace yourself, Visible and... rely on me”.

I hope the readers don't think I sit around and gloat about people saying so many nice things about me, or that it is a sop to my vanity. I intensely dislike vanity and I scourge myself in making sure I am not victimized by it. I pray every day for God to remove my shortcomings and grant me his qualities. I try to talk to God all day long about the things that happen to me. I'm really sincere in seeking God's ear. I love God more than everything in this world all put together. The feelings that upwell in my heart on occasion, sometimes leaves me breathless, or in tears. A love affair with God will consume you. You have to be prepared to have your whole life turned upside down. You have to be prepared for anything and everything. You can't have a life like it seems other people do. Your life is over at that point because it will consume you. When God wants your attention and total service and obedience, you have no choice. There are those reading here that know what I mean. Certainly Homer knows what I mean and Cap'n Spadgett, as well as a few others.

My friends, these are tough times and a lot of us are being run off the rails from the pressure and confusion of the times. I'm going to publicly apologize to you, insiam. I'm sorry I reacted the way I did and I hope you can forgive me. I don't think people realize how busy I am and that sometimes I make mistakes simply from juggling too many balls. I don't want to lose any of you. You are important to me. You validate my life. You make me more effective and more real than I could ever accomplish on my own. I've nothing but gratitude in my heart for your beautiful presences in my life.

I got up at 5 this morning. It's now 7:52. I'm off to Munich in a couple of hours and if any of the readers are in Munich then email me or comment here and we will arrange to meet; maybe have dinner and a couple of cocktails, or just walk around. You have been notified. If the photos are not right up, please come back and look at them. I really want you to see what became of The Little Guy.

The small white dog is our dearly departed Lilly Nelson and Poncho is there too. He's my good little boy, is Poncho. I notice when we go for a walk that he is proud of me and that makes me feel like... I really can't tell you. It puts me on top of the world. All his attention is focused on me so much of the day. If I could only give God the attention that Poncho gives me... I would have it all won in the most speedy and energetic fashion (grin). Please my friends, let us not contend with each other. That is what the enemy wants. It breaks my heart when this kind of shit happens. I'm not a fraud or a liar. I have my shortcomings but those are not among them. I'm the real deal, so far as it goes ...but I've got work to do, for sure. There is definitely room for improvement and you may be sure that I work to that end every single day and even when I am sleeping.

I want you to study the pictures of The Little Guy, as a puppy...


The Little Guy as a pup, shortly after Vis found him...

...and as a grown dog.

Who would have imagined he would turn into the golden boy? Let's all keep The Little guy in mind as we go about the routines of our days. Let's keep him in mind. Don't pass The Little Guy by.

The Trained Observer in the Horse Latitudes.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

Much of the quality of our lives, depends on our information flow; the sort of information and where it comes from. Generally, people rely on sources outside themselves, to confirm or refute what they are picking up on, or not picking up on. This makes all the difference in how we feel and what happens to us. It determines what we consider to be real. If it's not real, then you have a problem, sooner or later. The later you have the problem, the more serious that problem will be. To paraphrase Lao Tu, 'if you're sane, you catch it swiftly and “your cure is quick”. Otherwise, it moves from an occasional misapprehension to a chronic condition.

The majority of the world is listening to the world. The world's job is to deceive and entrap you. It's what it does. It's the land of enchantment. You might have been thinking that's New Mexico. No, that's the whole operation. There's an old term from The Book of Common prayer that goes, “the world, the flesh and the devil”. You contend with the magnetics between these things. One is an environment. One is the weakness in you and one is an active agent, representative of the lies of sensation. The whole world is on fire with desire. It is often the case that you can't see something when you are contained within it; when it surrounds you. This puts you in a subjective state and that is the prevailing status of most people. One of the things, most impinged upon in the modern world, is our objective capacity; the ability to detach ourselves from circumstances and more clearly see the circumstances. The endless and relentless distractions and diversions are designed to keep us in a subjective state. We become subjects to a false ruler. It's like the false light and the true light. We wind up giving our allegiance to what confines us, instead of what liberates us.

One of the reasons I have stressed the discipline of meditation (though not recently) is that it is a gradual ascent into greater awareness, or it can be. If you're not doing it right, you're like a dog chasing it's tail. Certain substances can jump you right out of the envelope but the results are temporary. Meditation can take you out of the loop, eventually but gradually. It's going to have inconsistent results if practiced inconsistently. That makes sense, right? This isn't something you do on alternate days of the week. I've mentioned a particular example before. I'll mention it again for the benefit of those who may not have been around then and also for the benefit of those who have forgotten it (grin).

When you begin your days with meditation, you enter a slipstream of consciousness, at a particular level and everything you encounter and experience, is happening at that vibratory rate. It can make a huge difference in terms of what you run into and how you respond to it. Anyone who has been a regular meditator, knows the difference between how it goes when they have had a successful meditation, or when they got up late, or got hit with something they weren't expecting and so missed their meditation and went running out the door. Hold on, you forgot your keys; back in and then back out again. Everything is suddenly different that it usually is. You are operating on a different slipstream now and it's not the usual smooth sailing. If you observe the people moving in the world around you, you can see they are on different slipstreams. Some of them are fast walking down the street with a slice of pizza in their hand; eating on the run. You see all kinds of things if you are watching.

I often suggest to people that they go and sit on a park bench; yeah, someone might hit on you but you take a shot anyway (grin). You can just as well sit in a restaurant or a bar. The idea is not to get sucked into the situation, which is something you know can happen, like when you are watching TV. At first you know you are watching TV and then, pretty quickly, a point comes where you are unaware of yourself, as something apart from the experience. If you are closely observing, you are able to see what draws and attracts people. You can see all kinds of things, like the loneliness factor, the sleaze factor, the clueless factor, the intently goal oriented, determined factor. There are all kinds of factors at work. However, most people just dumpty, dumpty dum, down the road to wherever. A lot of people have this, 'let it flow, go with the flow' thing and then boom! Right into the abyss.

The mind is a monkey and has been compared to a monkey by many informed observers. You might think of Hanuman as being a mind completely surrendered to the higher self. This is an example of the mind being your worst enemy as well as, potentially, your best friend. The whole point of chanting, unceasing prayer and related disciplines, is to proactively occupy the mind with a positive focus. Otherwise the unruly mind will occupy itself with whatever comes along and form endless images of whatever your usual predispositions might be. This can be very much influenced by the dog of desire. The non stop yapping of the dog of desire, easily distracts the monkey mind. It's pretty simple and basic stuff, but not if you are caught up in the middle of it. That can just go on looping ad infinitum and there you are eating on the run again, which is not a good idea.

When you are on that park bench, in that bar, restaurant or sitting in a mall, if you are paying attention, you can see ranks of bad habit, going by or acting out in front of you. This requires intent focus and it is something that can be learned and developed, with the most surprising results over time. You would be very surprised at the level to which this can be developed. Then you can see the hypnotic somnambulism going on all around you. You see the internalization of dreaming, longing and a host of other states, going on and on and on in a kind of cultural, Horse Latitudes.

There's nothing accidental about all the bad food, the cheap and offensive entertainments, the vacuity of the music, the epidemic of poisonous and legal pharmaceuticals, the endemic corruption in officialdom, the brutality of the police, the endless wars and the ever tightening stranglehold of the bankers. This is all an orchestrated environment; a mental hospital, containment zone. You can't see it, if you are deep in it. Detachment becomes the most difficult art. Meditation grants you a leg up in this regard. It increases both focus and awareness. It's a big boon to concentration, which is “the secret of the magical art”. It certainly schools in detachment. Detachment, militates against attachment. Becoming free of attachment, or managing to live in the world and not be of it, is the central goal of having a spiritual directive, as the motivating force in your life.

The world as it is at the moment and as it is most of the time, is a deadly snare. The intensity of the world, as it is at the moment, is directly related to the phenomenal possibilities that exist at this point of the ending and beginning of a 26,000 year cycle. It's not going to come around again for quite a while. Consider that all we know about human history, in the conventional sense, is only one fifth of this time sequence. The whole thing has broken down and built itself up more than once over this period. Atlantis exists as a myth and a rumor, even though it was quite real, when it was and no longer real when it was suddenly not.

The tools for making your life something meaningful and beautiful are readily available, just like the slice of pizza, in the hands of the person who has so engaged themselves that they do not have the time, or do not think they have the time, to stop and eat like a sane person. Eating in this fashion, not engaging in gratitude when you do, not recognizing the effect of eating in this manner, all leads to a very dysfunctional existence. It definitely promotes stress, which is at the source of the majority of disease and a general lack of well being overall. Mention this to people and they will tell you to mind your own business; self will run riot.

In the end, we are responsible for the value we give and deny to what we do and do not value. Focused observation will clearly tell you what people value and do not value. That is for each individual to decide, “Where your heart is, there your treasures are also”.

Last night's radio show is available for streaming.

A short observation on the series of books in “A Song of Ice and Fire”, by George R.R. Martin. I finished it a couple of days ago and I have to say that I am on the whole disappointed. It is senselessly brutal and the author just whimsically kills anyone he feels like, at any time, as if his whole point were that, I can break the usual rules any time I want to. He thinks he's being clever and cutting edge but he is not. There are reasons that most novels and fictional representations, follow certain schemes and themes. Martin apparently doesn't get this or doesn't care. People may disagree with me but that's my two cents worth.

Something different...

Sandblasting the Dancing Wraiths in a Temporary Darkness.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

Lately it has been coming into my mind, on a regular basis, that one of our premier, collective difficulties, has to do with the appearance of things. I've mentioned this more than a time or two, over recent months. It used to be that The Wide Ass Media, told us most of what we came to believe as true, if we weren't looking any deeper ...and most of us weren't. In former times, there were still some columnists and writers, who retained a small amount of integrity and would sometimes let the truth out for a short walk off an even shorter pier. CNN came along and gave some amount of credible journalism, until the Zio-Ogre ripped it out of Ted Turner's hands, in one of those corporate bloodbaths and turned it into a novelty, toilet paper machine, with the fecal matter already imbedded in it... you didn't even need to wipe, just toss it into the can and flush.

Before the internet, there was just The Wide Ass Media, word of mouth and those few writers who somehow managed to slip through the ocean strangling, Zio-filament nets. LSD and the transformation of consciousness, provided an earlier awakening, before the internet came around and there were those couple decades of dark, material efflorescence, in between the acid and the internet. Reagan, Thatcher and a host of bad actors, joined in with the 80's Wall Street, crocodile swine mentality and the cocaine and pricy wines just flowed and flowed; I'm presuming a whole lot of 'in and out' went on as well.

All that child abuse and brutal murder abroad, was just going on and going on ...and, going on. I got nothing to say about the '90's cause people disagree with me about the state of the culture but I don't. The less said the better. Then we got the internet and everything has been changing since then; simultaneously for the worse and for the better.

Prior to this, we were already living in a world of media saturation, flashing billboards, LED sneakers and neon under-lights for Honda Civics and Accords. Violent, jackhammer thunder-fucking, olfactory abuse, was pumping out of those Voice of the Theater, car speakers, as morons rode that blind highway to nowhere and worse. The culture had already been fragmenting into hundreds of splinter groups, seeking some kind of temporary community among kindred souls. That included before and after moments, concerned with the hereafter. (As either Cheech Marin, or Tommy Chong said; “I used to be all fucked up on drugs, now I'm all fucked up on God*) The People's Temple and Heaven's Gate. The cult of the corporate mercenaries, was gestating, as the pornographic rich, worked to get themselves into place for the planetary, cold-pressing into servitude and a, perpetual victim engineered, kill-off. It's either a screen pass or a play action fake.

The Internet blew into town and changed the whole game board. It sucked in the rich and the poor. The people with too much, saw plenty of opportunity to acquire more and the disenfranchised finally had a forum to be heard on. The enemies of humanity got exposed and we know all about Central Bankers now and who controls the currency printing presses. We know what happened in 1913. We know about the Rothschilds, the Warburgs and the Schiffs. We know who funded Hitler, who Stalin worked for and all kinds of things we can't talk about but... we know. Mr. Apocalypse showed up and starting flushing naked shit-golems from the underbrush.

The internet is a good thing but it's also a matter of too much information. There's just so much information to process and a lot of it is wrong; intentionally wrong because the same killer clown, cartoon thugs that had been running the previous media scams, jumped up on the internet, like it was some kind of trampoline and started telling lies out of both sides of their mouths 24/7. All of this was about being able to continue their relentless, disinformation push, whose intent was ever greater and greater profit margins, as well as the continuance of a terrible agenda that had world enslavement in it's windshield but... that wasn't all. Many horrible things came dancing like wraiths out of the fog machines of Armageddon Central.

9/11 got done by the people who reported on it so... with both the official media and the political puppets in their pockets, they've gotten away with it so far, including all those Central Banker Wars that have killed and displaced millions. Our petition to bring this hideous act to light, now has 317 signatures and the red lettered tag that gave you the opportunity to report it for abuse, which was there all day yesterday, is now gone. WTF? All that's left now are buttons to promote it. It makes you wonder.

We are all being affected by information overload and it has made our impressions of our world, far more grim and difficult than it may actually be. Then again... what do I know? The appearances of things is causing a world wide, collective depression. They are creating legions of hand wringers and negativists. It has unleashed armies of dutiful drones, who do everything they can do (they're on a payroll), to bring us down. The corporations are completely out of control. Proposition 37 was hijacked by massive polling and voting irregularities. But what is this I see? People are now regulating supermarket products on their own. All over the world, under the radar of the fecalist, crass media, people are working as they are inspired to and come together and fight the machine. Big Brother is building panic boxes and dreaming of massive reductions in population. On the one hand it looks pretty dark. On the other hand it's hopeful, when you even hear about it. I'm hopeful.

I want to tell the reader and hope the reader will tell those that the reader encounters, that all is not lost and that the way things might look, they are not actually like that. They are only being made to appear that way. Mr. Apocalypse is laying it on with a will and he hasn't even warmed up yet. Mr. Apocalypse has got your back, if you got no problem being up front. The truth is always more powerful than any lie. I know that injustice has stomped on this planet for many a year and that many of us have been salted away in the darkness for longer periods of time; this serving as a warning to those others who might feel inclined, out of some shred of human decency, to do the right thing but... truth is inexorable and will out. It will come and not all the lies and armies of darkness around the world can prevent it. It is a new day and the cosmic imperative, toward irrevocable and irreversible cosmic change, will not be hindered or denied.

Some amount of vampire lizards have been kept alive, in order to see this day. As the fiends from the inner planes, are pushed out into the physical realm, where they take up residence in stolen bodies, the Elves of Mr. Apocalypse, are on the loose, lighting them up for The Punisher. Appearances make us doubt this inevitable denouement but it is coming none the less. You have to have certitude in your hearts and minds. You have to believe. Collective belief, for good or ill, is one of the most powerful things on this Earth. This is why those organized forces, that work to our detriment and for their own profit, are so obsessed with dividing us against each other. They know the power of a unified public front. This is why they were so brutal about the levitation of The Pentagon. They know what can happen in these circumstances. This is why they have set out to destroy the economic system and destroy the job market, as well as throw people out of their homes. Keeping you in distress and off balance is the whole intent. This is why they launched a treasonous assault on American soil. The Zionist Israeli overlords, their catamite intelligence services and bought or compromised politicians knew that Mr. Apocalypse was coming, so they blew up all kinds of offices, filled with files and records in New York and then went and did the same thing in Virginia and you may be sure that they had special teams on hand, to make sure nothing was left. I still wonder about all that gold as well. I definitely wonder what is going to happen with Germany's gold and where that is going to lead. Germany has a history, when being fucked with (simplistic, I know; back off fang!).

I'd like to point out something I have discovered in the last decade. I've never come across more honest people than the Germans. You can leave your wallet in a phone booth or bar and get it back with the money in it. Of course, there is no 100% guarantee about any of that but I've seen example after example. They might be suspicious, or like the Bavarians (who might not be German-grin... a little humor), 'grantig' but the honesty is pretty remarkable. They like Americans but they think they could do with a little reserve, and some restraint on that boundless optimism. Given what they're experienced, I can understand. You can't leave your wallet anywhere, in any number of other places and then again, sometimes you can. You shouldn't be leaving your wallet in any case. Pay attention. That's also what I mean about appearances. Pay attention. Things are not what they seem and the whole thing actually is under control. There are variables in this dynamic; such as personal will, in opposition to what is best for one, as well as collective delusion, giving impetus to things that might not and should not happen but do happen and- then again- sometimes don't happen.

Recognize that there is this blanketing force of negative appearances, that swims in cold and hot currents, around the world. Yeah, hot and cold can be both good and bad depending. Thimk! The key tactic of the enemy, is to get you to believe what is not real. If you think something is so, it can be a significant motivator to act, or not act, to move or not move, to stand down, or to stand up ...and it's been going on apace. It's all a bunch of bullshit and has only the power given to it, to perform it's purpose of demonstration. Mr. Apocalypse is also attended by an army of really good electricians, who know all about routing power.

*Mr. Visible answers to both of those descriptions.

Deep... In to the Base of the Joining

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be in the roses and not focused on what they are growing out of.

Here we are again at Origami, engaged in a metaphysical discourse and interchange and by metaphysical let me describe how that word interprets to me and keep in mind the word, 'physical' as well. Physics is the study of the known as far as it can be mathematically messed with, which often places it outside of it's demographic in any case, like the fact that the universe is thought-born and that everything is composed of mindstuff. It almost makes you want to be come a Buddhist but I don't see the point of that when you can become a Buddha or Bodhisattva instead. I'll add here, “thinking makes it so”. Of course that thinking must be determined and filled with faith and certitude.

We are all gods in the act of becoming and there is a theory that has been bandied about, or maybe that's one of those things I came up with but don't want to take credit for because I know for sure someone must have said it before I did; every star in the sky was once like you and I. We are Gods in the making and if we are not that then what is the point? Rocks become plants, Plants become animals. Animals become human so... the system suddenly changes and humans don't become gods? I don't hold with evolution from the gitgo but I do hold with evolution through the get all. One of the reasons I don't expect to wind up in Gitmo is cause I get less and am not impatient for more (*would that be Gitless?); “See if I shall not open the windows of Heaven and pour you out a blessing too big to receive”. That and, “I look to the hills from whence commeth my help”, are two bits of scripture I have had since a child. I dutifully read The Bible as a young boy for long stretches. That's probably why I'm so tall. It comes from having to stretch out of the way of bad situations.


End digression... So, if physics deals with the known and that being the realm of mortal lives, does it not serve that metaphysics treats with the unknown and the realm of God and immortal lives? It does for me and that is how I mean it. I know that one of the reasons that I experienced so much brutality through my life and such a degree of treachery over the term, was to reduce me to the point where I don't trust anyone but God. I am well aware that when I am looking at someone, who thinks very highly of me, that their opinion can change a lot quicker than my heart would hope. I've made it happen just to see what I would rather not have seen but... in my case, God is usually the instigator and I know this because of the way it works out in the aftermath; the results have never disappointed (pun intended). I was kept safe in conditions where no one would expect such a result, unless they were eight feet tall and weighed four hundred pounds on a iron freaks frame; and that's no guarantee either or, people have seldom surprised me; speaking from my own higher mind.

The point of this was to reduce me to the point where I only trust God. That statement can be misleading. Yes, I only trust God but keep in mind the translation of Emanuel; God with us. I prefer, God in us. So I am at liberty to trust the divine in people but not the people themselves and looking for God in others is an evocation. Keep in mind that I always use any word intentionally. Successful evocations depend on a preceding invocation. God rises when summoned and so does The Devil and both are potential residents within us. “Who ya gonna call”? The deity arising, is an intentional affair. The Devil arising is an automatic affair. You get what you put into it or it gets put into you. “Get thee behind me Satan” Well, all of this is simple, unless you are complicated and complications lead to a house divided against itself.

I believe in the Supreme Personality of God. Heck, he came and said hello a few months ago and my invisible friends let me know what an honor that was and I was told I had missed all but one previous event; not that there were all that many of them. So, when I say we are all gods in the making, I do not mean that we will ever be The Supreme Personality. We will not, no never, no how but... there are beautiful and mysterious truths that attend this and you wouldn't have it any other way, trust me on that. There is a wonder to being a servant of God that passeth understanding. Nothing beats serving The One and I am sure it is more satisfying to a human being than being the one served ...but most people don't get that. We'll laugh about these things, once we have somewhere to do it in. In the best of combinations, people vie for the opportunity to be the one serving. They know what it means and... people like that, don't even care about the payback. The opportunity to serve is payback enough. Some of you know what I mean and some don't but... those who do, understand how I savor this and hope it goes on forever and ever. Nothing beats being a servant, given you have the most righteous of masters and that leads to what? That leads to being granted his favor and named his friend. That is exclusive territory indeed.

Over time, many win residence in the kingdom of Heaven, for all kinds of reasons but very few are granted the favor and named friends and only those who are friends, know and can comment on that. God likes to travel but he seldom does it alone. He gets in touch with different friends and asks them if they are up for (or free for) a trip to somewhere. It might be a place created only for that. Of all the things I value, or could EVER value, being named a friend of God stands supreme, far above everything else. I remember when I first heard this. I was in prayer and I was ecstatic, though ecstasy does not always attend my prayers. On this occasion I was there and I said to God, “Lord make me immortal, only so that I can serve you to the end of time and beyond. I'll never forget that because he told me that I was now his friend and he showed me what that meant; how what I thought and wished for meant and this makes me think of the haunting beauty of what Helena Petrovna Blavatsky said; “There is a road, steep and thorny, beset with perils of every kind, but yet a road, and it leads to the very heart of the Universe. I can tell you how to find those who will show you the secret gateway that opens inward only, and closes fast behind the neophyte for evermore. There is no danger that dauntless courage cannot conquer; there is no trial that spotless purity cannot pass through; there is no difficulty that strong intellect cannot surmount. For those who win onwards there is reward past all telling - the power to bless and save humanity; for those who fail, there are other lives in which success may come”

She also said, “The duty of the Theosophical Society is to keep alive in man his spiritual intuition”. People like to point out the flaws in the human ointment and Helena, like they were anything special themselves; keeping in mind the mote in their eye and the beam in your own but... people don't get to say things like this, cause the critics were right? Now, since I have studied the lives of certain people; you know what impresses me the most? It is when the critics reveal their ignorance by missing fundamentally, important features of the individual under consideration. I'll add one more thing about Helena; you'll have to intuit what I am trying to say and I have to paraphrase, though, not to the point that it affects what she was saying at all. She was supposed to be wed to some guy. He might have even been a prince (grin). She was 17 and she ran away. She said, later on, “I was not going to be a slave to a man. I am definitely not going to be a slave to God”. Now what did she mean? I can see her right now, riding in the carriage with Gurdjieff, as he was probably sipping one of his 24 coffees a day, with a shot of liquor in each one. Don't try to find the sense in what you read and hear. Find the truth intuitively... because I guarantee you that you can find it no other way ...but what do I know? I know Jack Shit and his brother Off. What's that, sons of a different father?

I sincerely respect certain people but that only comes from 'reading between the lines'. My heroes may not be your heroes but... they are still my heroes, cause I know the viscosity and dreadful pull of the shit they had to walk through. I wrote my song “Fade Away” about that. Now, my music may not be all that good over this last decade but I can't do what I do alone and that's been shown to me over and over again. So let's make something useful happen before we share the common fate that no one wants except the common; not that they want it either but dumb is as dumbass. I'm not sure if that got leeched from Antonin Artaud or Voltaire; probably neither, although I do like Rousseau, just for the romanticism of something we no longer see and he never saw it in his time either. It is not about whether you win or lose. It is about where you are coming from and whether you stuck to your invisible guns and sometimes they were hidden from you as well (hint! Hint! Wink and nod and nudge).

Now, of course, I don't know what is going on and god has been gracious enough to let me put it into print (grin) but... since I am his friend, I don't really care if I miss some little factor here and there because I am not what jot and tittle were about in the first place. Those of us that suffer the most, especially when young and ...especially later on, have obviously awoken God's innate resistance to having too many friends. Ah well.

We're coming out with a line of books now, including the long suffering novel and you will see them all by half time next year, if there is a half time next year. This is made possible by my good friend Sim and a little Scottish influence as well; since that leaves both of them anonymous, until they let me change that, here is the cover to the first one.

Cave Dei Videt and Hearts of Wonder

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

(scanning... scanning... “a little early in the post to be scanning Visible, isn't it”? “Hey, I'm not even in 7th Grade yet and... and... uh... I'm slow, I think- therefore I... I was? ...scanning ...scanning)

Once again, we find ourselves at Visible Origami. Maybe a word about Visible Origami is in order and that would lead to some explanation, for all of the other sites, presently active, or presently dormant. There's reasons for all of this. Some of them might get discussed and some might not. Principally the thing I want to say ...and don't care much, one way or the other, if anything else gets said... is (scanning... scanning... heh heh). No, that is not what I wanted to say. I wanted to say that Visible Origami was the first blog and it operated all on its lonesome for a couple of years, I think. Maybe it was somewhere between one and two years, maybe more.

In the beginning, I told myself, “if I can only get 30 readers who came around regular, that would be great”. Then I told myself, “If I could only get 300 readers, that would be great”. Then I told myself, “If I could only get 3,000 readers, that would be great”. Then I told myself, “If I could only get 30,000 readers, that would be great”. Well, I'm somewhere between the last two. With some posts I've gone well over 30,000 but there is no consistency to that.

I got those 300 readers at Origami, more or less and then I realized, intuitively, that I wasn't going to get any greater increase because only ten percent of the people have enough curiosity about metaphysics to want to dive into it to the point that it might change the course of their existence. The majority of people fear change. Civilization is humanities reaction to pain and discomfort. We have a plethora of excuses, rationalizations and justifications for what we do. We need to convince ourselves that all the unnecessary and confining traps of material existence, are necessary and that somehow they lead to some form of liberation from them but... they don't. When I talk about 'metaphysics', I am talking about 'applied metaphysics'. Any other metaphysics are just a vanity projects, where people sit in their comfort zone and talk about these things from the safety of not having to do them. Eventually they become intellectual ponces, who are capable of any kind of immoral excess, because they are at a distance of remove from themselves. The shadow twin is in charge.

I realized that there was another 90% who were more interested in socio-political and cultural affairs and that if I was ever to get them to invest some thoughtful time in Metaphysics, I would have to suck them in, via another avenue first. Thus, Smoking Mirrors and Reflections in a Petri Dish were born. Profiles in Evil was around for a bit but I wasn't comfortable with that. I have my own sins and shortcomings and I don't ever want to forget that, though I strive daily to be rid of them. They are in place, until the time I have earned release from them, or that particular 'purpose of demonstration' has concluded; may it come soon. I was correct in my intuitive sensing and it was not long before a site in the UK picked up on me, Signs of the Times picked up on me, for awhile. The People's Voice picked up on me, for awhile. What Really Happened picked up on me and finally, the biggest site of it's kind picked up on me. I'm trying to stay out of the feud zone but it isn't always easy. I got in the middle of a few feuds and didn't come out of them well.

One of the unfortunate aspects of the internet is that it has bred an army of anonymous trolls. They know, as all of us come to know, that they are cowards, with a mean streak. Many cowards take upon themselves the persona of a bully because of poor fear management within. The internet has become a playground for all their former insecurities and poor sense of self worth, along with their feelings of insignificance; given their lack of accomplishments and indifference to personal development, they take their pleasure in seeking to diminish others, through ambushing, sniper attacks, fabricated slanders and an arsenal of insults, probing, looking for weaknesses, in those who don't have those weaknesses. They are the ones who, in fact, have the weaknesses and they are, by projecting, actually assaulting their own unexercised potential. However, you can only (as Lao Tzu said) feel punctured, if you are a bubble. Don't be a bubble. Don't get puffed up with the usual vanities of self importance and excessive worth. There are 7 billion people on the planet and it stands to reason that there are a host of people who are better at every single thing you can do. Even if you are truly exceptional, it never serves to consider yourself so, because the moment you do, you are automatically routed toward a demonstration of your insignificance. That's how it works. Diminish yourself and avoid having to be diminished. Believe me,there's a big difference in impact. God is not mocked.

Anyway, perhaps a decade has passed since I started Visible Origami and Smoking Mirrors, has about 5 million visits. Petri Dish, has 2 million and Visible Origami has 1.5 million, even though Mirrors came along much later and Petri Dish much later after that. You would think that Origami would have the most entries but actually Smoking Mirrors does; supply and demand. I know people have come to Visible Origami as a result of the other blogs and some number have signed up as followers, so that they can be informed of each new posting at whatever blogs they follow.

Not long ago Facebook became an item. Years ago, I had signed up in a rudimentary way and then promptly ignored it. I kept getting messages that people wanted to be my friends. This went on and on and began to annoy me, so... I thought why not just take care of all that in one fell swoop. I suppose destiny wanted to step in at that point. I hit the wrong button and sent out a friend request to everyone in my Inbox. This turned out to be many hundreds of people, some of whom I no longer was on good terms with; people who had contacted me to vent and so forth. Next thing I knew, Facebook was operational and something very curious happened, a whole new group of readers showed up who only comment at Facebook. I never see them at the blogs. Finally one of the Facebook readers did come over, just to show that he could. That was amusing. Now I've got going on 2,000 friends and sometimes they come in by the dozens on any given day. I don't care much for Facebook and don't go there much but, on the whole it has been a very satisfying endeavor, which has led to all sorts of interesting things and probably will lead to more.

Recently, someone got on my case for having advertisements on my site, not knowing that I take a special pride in giving free advertising to those I consider deserving. I turn a great many people down, no doubt creating new adversity, as a result of breaking eggs to make an omelet. A fine fellow gave me a callous maker liquid for my guitar playing. I want to feature him too but I have misplaced the item and now don't know how to find him. I know that people have found true relief from the ayurvedic kidney stone treatment. If you've never had one, consider yourself very lucky. My doctor recently told me that it was possibly the most painful ailment there is. Interestingly, only one of those advertised has ever cared to get in touch with me ...and some haven't acknowledged it at all but that's not why it gets done. I believe in Cave Dei Videt, “beware, God is watching”. I know I'm being watched all the time. Even if it is no one corporeal, it is certainly someone more important than that. God watches life through our eyes.

I'm neither so good as some people make me out to be, nor so bad as others project. I'm just a work in progress, in hope of redemption and self realization. The things I really want, are not physical manifestations. How many of those will accompany me on my continuing journey? I've had some hard knocks with people I was deeply engaged with and was mystified as to why some things occurred. Given the cold continuance so much later, I now realize that God arranged all of that to show me this very thing. I've had a novel published by someone who closed me out entirely and all this time later, never receive any accounting or have any idea what is happening. The divine has done his part to show me where my reliance should be. He's made some number of relationships untenable. It's my reluctance to play the guru that is at the heart of much of the trouble. If I would just dress myself up in the expected outfit and stare at people with a faraway look of wisdom in my eyes well, well then, a certain portion of those I interact with would be satisfied. If I played the role there would be that expectation of consistency and I could work the magic of mystery and inscrutable presence. I'd have a fine place to live and a lot of money. The divine tells me that I can expect all kinds of things once he has made the changes he intends to make in me.

I feel like the one thing I most want to avoid is to operate under false pretenses. After all, Cave Dei Videt. I avoid being exposed, by exposing myself. I avoid having undeserved labels placed on me, by routinely acting out in a certain way, that leaves us all on a level playing field. I strive for ordinary in my contacts, even though extraordinary things happen now and again.

Anyone who has come here for any length of time knows about the unique resonance that goes on here. The divine tells me there are few, if any places like it and I know it's got only a little to do with me. Life has shaped me a certain way, with a hard hand, that has grown softer in more recent times. So I am an instrument, as we are all instruments and something plays through me, due to the forceful shaping of my being. It is, by no wise, an easy road. There aren't more of us because the demands and rigors are extreme, as is the leap of faith that needs to be taken at intervals of greater frequency than one might like. The quality of souls, who are attracted to the communion that takes place here, are nothing short of amazing. It often blows my mind, how informed and articulate, so many of you are. Then we get the regular appearance of new, interesting and entertaining souls, like the fellow who does all the song parodies, “Sheep Dreams are made of this”, indeed.

There's no telling how many extraordinary people are lurking in the woodwork. The usual demographics say that only about 2% of the people become actively engaged. I'm genuinely proud of one thing. Though I have had my fallings out with people, I bear zero ill will and am always ready to pick up with a new leaf, in search of what should have been and still might be. Sadly, none of them are the same way inclined and that answers for whatever happened, as has already been stated.

Thank you all for taking this journey with me. We haven't touched the best of times yet, nor experienced anything close to what awaits us 'up' the road. You have my word on that. Reincarnation is all about falling by the wayside. Let us not fall by the wayside and we shall have tea and cakes in Shambala one fine day.

Inward and Outward Bound, Somewhere or Other.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

To say that I am perplexed and confused at the moment would be a serious understatement. I can talk about some things and you will get the jist of it. Some things I cannot talk about because I don't know what they mean and until I know what they mean, I will eschew (what a word) any commentary on specific matters. Once you are aware of what took place and the stated motivations, you will possibly understand why I am perplexed and confused.

I should add something, which I have noticed over recent years. I'm not like everybody else. Well, everybody else may not be like everybody else either but I'm talking about a different kind of measurement. I can't really talk about this either because I don't know what it means but I notice, when I am around people, I often have what seems to me (given the reactions and lack of reactions of people around me) an alien perspective. Some might think me paranoid or overly imaginative. They do not apply. First of all, I don't think people are out to get me, except in that general way that all of us, outside the ordinary spectrum, are considered enemy agents due to a (presently defined) unnatural love of freedom and the right of self expression.

However, for sometime now, whenever I am out in public, whenever I look up, I find people staring at me. Sometimes it is with something like an undefined curiosity and sometimes it is with negative aspect that seems to be some combination of apprehension and an inability to define whatever it is they think they are looking at. When I got back on Monday night, I wanted to get a couple of beers to relax with. The stores were all closed, so we stopped at a pub in town. You can buy beers to go at any pub. Susanne said something like “uh oh, the men's chorus will be in there, so you are going to get a lot of looks. I went in and there were about a dozen men seated at a big table behind me, as I waited to get waited on. I could feel the heat at my back, so I turned around and saw these fellows boring holes in me. One of them was particularly intense, so much so that I extended my hands in a “What”? Expression ...but got nothing more but more of the same. I went out and told Susanne what happens and she said, “Yeah, that's what I thought would happen”. I said, “But why”? And she couldn't tell me why. That's really puzzling. She knows it's going to happen but she doesn't know why it happens and it happens a lot; like all the time.

I can't say what the degree of absolute truth concerning my trip is. I'm inclined to go along with what I was told and that seems to be pretty much how it was. A friend of mine got eight people together to go to Transylvania. I was one of them. One of them was at the house in the UK the night before and he disappeared and no one knew where he went and I never heard any more about it.

We went to catch the plane to Transylvania. The majority of the guests met us at the airport. I had just gotten my passport on the Friday before I left for UK, on Tuesday. I didn't have time to have my residency sticker transferred to my new passport and that caused recurrent problems with security. The very first time, at Heathrow, I was separated from the others and I could not find them for what seemed a very long time. I wound up way the Hell out somewhere and saw some Muslim employees of the airport. I showed them my boarding pass and one of them said, “Oh, your flight has already left”. I thought, “Damn! What am I going to do now”? They called security and a policeman arrived. He looked at my ticket and said, “Your flight hasn't left yet”. He escorted me a very long way to a gate. There was a large number of passengers collected there but those I was traveling with were not among them. The security office put me on the other side of a gate with one other person. I had priority boarding. I never saw the others and I thought, “This is not the right flight. Where am I going to wind up”? Then came the boarding and I still didn't see them. My seat was in the front row of the plane. Finally all the rest of them arrived and we had the whole front row.

Apparently Transylvania is distinct from Romania. This was pointed out to me over and over. We arrived in Transylvania in blazing sunlight and the weather stayed very warm and sunny throughout the stay. Lovely Rita picked up up in a jeep type SUV and we were packed in like sardines for a two and a half hour trip over winding roads. Before arriving at my friends house, we stopped at Vladimir and Elizabeth's house, where they had prepared some entertaining peasant food. Vladimir is a very gifted painter. I'm still moved by his work and will try to scan some of it at some point so you can see it.

We went to the house and after a brief dropping off of things, someone said we were going down to the pub in town. I went along and near immediately there were 3 drinks in front of me. I could see that this event was going to turn into a blasted state and I didn't want to go there, so I asked Tzabi to please drive me up to the house.

I got driven to the house and settled in. I was in an unheated room but I had a ski suit. Sometime in the middle of the night, someone pushed my door open and I woke up freezing so I went inside the house to warm up and then back out to sleep. The next day was the day of the party and there was a little something I was unaware of. I had been told there would be mushroom wine. As it got toward evening, different people kept coming up to me and asking me to ask about the mushroom wine. Every time I did I got an indifferent response. I didn't know what was happening and I felt like people didn't like me very much. My friend said we had to wait for the musicians to go before we had the wine. It was a matter of respect. That made no sense. My friend remarked that I wasn't drinking any beer and that that was somehow unacceptable. I asked for a beer and drank that. Then went outside. The musician, who had a Korg Pa workstation was very good. I started singing and then I went into an impromptu and extemporaneous series of gospel inflected lyrics. Afterwards, I felt like I had emptied something out that was deep within. I walked over the the others who were all laughing and grinning at me and then I got it. I had been dosed with LSD. The purest and cleanest acid I have seen in decades. It was like something by Sandoz or Owsley. I got 4 hits and went to another planet. I was told the gathering was all about me. I was told the perception was that I had gotten too internalized with the Ketamine and this had been done because they loved me. I suspect this is true, so I am going to say goodbye to the lady and move on.

I can't begin to describe what happened to me that night. Years ago I had had a “Let it Be” trip. I had another one. The things I saw... Whoa. Then, the next morning, a large goblet of mushroom wine was placed in front of me and that led to a seriously protracted episode of yawning and further reaches into the cosmos. My friend remarked that I came all the way to Transylvania and wound up sitting in the little corner I was in. I don't think he understood what was going on inside of me. What occurred, it seemed to me at the time, was one of the most singularly powerful acts of brotherhood I had ever experienced and a tremendous payback for whatever it is that I do around here. I was separated in certain senses, as my diet is very different from the rest of them and, for whatever the reason, I'm not like everyone else. This is not a knock on everyone else, nor some kind of selective elevation of myself. It's just a matter of differences. It's a matter of things I don't understand, though I am told I will at some point.

Things got a little strange as time passed, until we set off at 3 in the morning for the airport; another long ride. I got back to UK and was pretty godawful tired and we were riding around for a long time looking for a hotel. I assumed we were picking someone up. Then I found I was being dropped off there. I had no idea of this happening but I was told I had been told about it the previous Thursday evening because the grandparents of my friend's lady were coming to stay. That totally went by me. It seems a lot of things went by me that I don't understand. Was everything that happened for my benefit or was there some kind of lesson being transmitted to me? When I was dropped off at the hotel, this fellow Matty seemed very annoyed at me. I'm pretty sure of that but completely unsure of why. I was very tired and- after a wonderful steam bath at the health complex next door and something to eat, I went to sleep around 6:00 PM and stayed that way until 6:00 AM the next morning. I had some breakfast and then tried to reach my friend. Finally I did. I had no cellphone and I didn't know his number or address. A lot of what happened seemed to be scripted by God. I asked God how many people were in on it. God said, “Maybe some and maybe none but I am certainly in on it”.

My Italian boots started causing me a great deal of pain. I had to take them of and walk around in socks. I was told that there was a store in the next town over where later I could get some sneakers or something. Then I was told that my size, 11.5 or 12 was too large for the area (strange again). Hours later, all of a sudden, I was directed to a pair of old sneakers that fit me perfectly. Probably all of this is very easily explained.

My friend told me to check out at noon and then wait at the free airport bus stop across the street from the hotel and he would come by. I waited outside there for an hour and a half. I was very cold by that point and had gone into the hotel to see if there were any messages. There weren't. I had no boarding pass and no idea of which terminal I should go to. The people in the hotel said that for my flight, the bus across the street went to the very terminal I needed to go to. I shrugged my shoulders and walked back across the street, just as the bus was arriving. I went to the terminal and presented my passport at check in and promptly got a boarding pass. Wonder of wonders. So I hung around and wandered around the terminal until six o'clock. Then I breezed through security, while everyone before and after me got vigorously patted down. I waited for my plane and got on my plane and flew away.

One thing I noticed about the UK is that a lot of people have a lot of money. You expect to see Mercedes and BMW's in Germany but there were far more in UK than I ever saw anywhere else ever. What I also found out is that things are seriously expensive. They eat a tremendous amount of pork there. Cigarettes are off the charts expensive and tobacco, in pouches with less than half of what you get anywhere else are more expensive than anywhere else. When you can get a pouch the same size as everywhere else it cost 16 pounds. The shops in the airport were more upscale than anything I have seen anywhere else. The computer, camera, cellphone shop was like something you would expect to see in Abu Dhabi. The Marks and Spencer shop had the most outrageous foods I've ever seen, really impressive and top of the line. It is apparent that the UK, which is the banking nerve center for the world has a lot of money circulating. I read The Sunday Telegraph and some clueless op ed writer was going on and on about what a splendid and heroic figure Ehhud Barak is. There were sops to the world's number one, crime syndicate nation all through the paper. It was revolting.

I was so glad to get home and I've been in a really good frame of mind since. I'm still perplexed and confused about some things but I'll get that sorted. I had a wonderful time at different points and the LSD was just what the doctor ordered. There was a fantastic dog there, a Romanian dog and they get about as big as an Irish Wolfhound. There was some violence that went down, I'm not going to talk about that. There was a little suckling pig running around. He was drunk most of the time. I'm not going to talk about that. I'm going to reflect on things, where I am able to reflect and I am going to get it together for India now and this big event I keep hearing about but am not getting any details on.

I'm glad Clarity is alright and hopefully all the rest of you in that hurricane zone. Howdy Doody is president again and maybe now things 'might' change, since he doesn't have to worry about getting elected. However, America is going downhill fast. Besides that, I don't know anything and whatever I think I know, is highly suspect at this point. Maybe I'll get a clue and maybe I won't but this world doesn't intrigue me that much anyway anymore.
