Is this your child, Loki?

[Here's a poem I found in one of the comments at Portland Indymedia, by a fairly regular poster who goes by the handle "Shaker." This was in response to a post about psychotronic weapons which are currently being used against American citizens.]

Observer and Observed

Where once one might behold a natural definition of horizon,
was allowed to laugh, to love
within the cosmos,
to feel hardly central
and be soothed by the comfortable revolution of the night skies,
an eye has been rocketed
into the well of heaven.
A daring bargain:
such sight in exchange for wisdom
and a stereoscope of ravens.

Infused, expanded, powerful...
Isn't it wonderful,
mechanical networks of associative neurons,
mimicry inebriated with radiated
and re-radiated microwaves?
In what image was this created?

What may have been a tree,
is a mast and antennae?
What may have been stars
are geosynchronus imposters?
What may be revelation
is an incessant shriek well beyond
the comfortable frequency of a heartbeat?
The gods whisper,
and punctuate wisely;
the mistaken irresponsibly scream.

The oracle recognizes the model
but sings in consternation.
Impetuous with the language of the gods,
one may curse in proud ignorance,
but be fated to necromancy
and the perspective of Odin:
with knowledge, but just one eye.

Ever heard of "predictive programming"?

I agree with Zen Gardener that this is a blatant recent example of it. GW over at Washington's Blog is worried about us invading Syria. Could that be our entry point to the "WW3" the Jeep Commercial alludes to?

According to this website, "Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by our leaders. If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as 'natural progressions', as Alan Watt calls it; thus lessening any possible public resistance and commotion."

Other examples of predictive programming: the oil spill in the Gulf, 9-11, and the weird murals at Denver's new airport.

Zen Gardener offers a good prescription. When it comes to predictive programming, "Stay clear of it. Advertising and political propaganda are sorcery and more powerful than you think. Don't let it occupy your eyes, ears or mind. It's spiritually toxic [...] Make a regular practice of tuning into the elevated frequency that's available to all right now. Read uplifting interviews, spend time in nature, find ways to practice peace."

It will always be worth your while to step back and examine what you're being exposed to. You have a choice. Don't give the bad guys your energy -- when it comes down to it, that's all they have to go on.

Video: JFK II -- the Bush Connection

Of course, tomorrow is the anniversary of the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy. I was impressed with this film, which ties Bush Sr. into these events in a dozen different ways.

UC Davis kids get an education

Even I was shocked by this.

On a positive note, this is kind of a fun little video:

As Above, So Below

I've been thinking about what to post today ... there's a lot of stuff about Occupy Wall Street and yesterday's day of action, and I had been thinking about talking about the Sandusky scandal and tying that in with other child abuse scandals I know about like the Franklin Scandal and the Johnny Gosch disappearance (which I believe ties in with the Jeff Gannon/fake journalist scandal ...) but I'm not really in the mood for either of those kinds of stories. There will always be plenty to fight about. Today I'd rather sit back and wonder. "See the world in just one grain of sand ..."

So here you go: Fibonacci's Fractals (hat tip to Charles Gilchrist).

Hypocrisy's Elegant Symmetry

Put the Message in the Box

I live along the Lincoln Highway, and as I was waiting for the bus this morning I saw a candy wrapper being blown my way. I was in a philosophical mood and wanting to do the right thing I bent down to pick it up. Instantly a song switched on in my head:
"Put the message in the box
Put the box into the car
Drive the car around the world . . .
Until you get heard."

I looked at the wrapper. It was for Almond Joy.
So here I am putting the message in the box. Believe it or not, this means something for me. Does it for you?

Mike Rivero of tells it like it is.

1. Nation A and Nation B are at peace, and free of debt.

2. The bankers, aka the money-junkies hire the presstitutes to tell Nation A that Nation B is coming to kill them unless Nation A attacks Nation B first. (Hitler at Gleiwitz, or Saddam's nuclear weapons, as only two examples) Donations are made to candidates who are willing to murder a few million people for a piece of the profits.

3. The money-junkies loan nation A the money to buy weapons to blow up nation B.

4. Nation B says "What the hell is this crap? Why are you attacking us?"

5. The money-junkies loan nation B the money to buy weapons to blow up nation A.

6. The war rages on and eventually one side wins and one sides loses. It doesn't really matter which one, as both Nation A and Nation B are now heavily into debt to the money-junkies.

7. The money-junkies loan nation A the money to repair and replace all they lost in the war. Nation A eventually gets back to the exact same life they had before the war only now they are hopelessly in debt to the money-junkies.

8. The money-junkies loan nation B the money to repair and replace all they lost in the war. Nation B eventually gets back to the exact same life they had before the war only now they are hopelessly in debt to the money-junkies.

9. The money-junkies hire the presstitutes to tell Nation C that Nation D is coming to kill them unless Nation D attacks Nation C first. Donations are made to candidates who are willing to murder a few million people for a piece of the profits.

Do you see how it works now? Do you see why we are always at war? Do you understand that as long as private central bankers control the economies of nations that wars murdering millions of innocents are inevitable?

Noticing Nature

A while back I wrote about a quiz I saw -- it might have been in Adbusters -- where they showed you silhouettes of corporate logos (like the Disney ears, the CBS eye, etc.) to see if you could identify them. I'm sure I would have got the majority right, along with most Americans. Then they showed you a bunch of leaf shapes, and I realized with consternation that about the only ones I could identify for sure would be a maple, and maybe an oak. That's pathetic. I like to think I'm a fairly intelligent person, and I like nature more than most ... how could I be so incredibly ignorant?

In the movie "The Color Purple" one line stood out for me: "I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it." Now, I don't know if it pisses Him off, because if so He'd be upset most of the time, I should think, but I imagine it does disappoint Him. After all, purple is fairly rare in nature, and if you don't notice it you're not paying much attention. And if you're not paying attention, you're squandering your time on this planet, when you're supposed to be learning something, or at least that's the way I've always seen it. So why is it that I know more about logos that are trying to sell me stuff than something that God made? That's like someone that knows more about cheap comic book characters than they know about the classics ... Garbage In, Garbage Out.

So yesterday I made it a point to look up a leaf of a brilliant red tree that had been troubling me ... I was sure it was a maple, but the leaf didn't look *exactly* like the Canadian flag, so I checked this website and saw that indeed, my tree was a *red* maple, and the Canadian flag leaf is from a *sugar* maple. I'm ashamed to admit I didn't know there was a difference, but on the upside, I've decided this fall to look up a tree a day. This is actually kind of fun -- if you see a leaf on the ground and wonder what kind of tree it's from, put it in your pocket and when you have time, go look it up! I did this occasionally with wild flowers this summer, and it's amazing how much more you notice things once you know their names. Now if there's some sort of big disaster or I get lost out in the woods somewhere, I'll know what kind of weeds I can use for a salad ... :)

In an important message from the Hopi Elders, they warn that in these precarious times there are things to be considered:
"Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in the right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden." I think that's an excellent idea.
