Empirical evidence of intuition….

Ffolkes,

A Rose for Carole….

Hajime…. Well, it’s done. I’m not sure how I did it, but, since it is patently a gift horse, I won’t quibble. There’s some music, a decent poem, and a crusty old-school pearl, which together complete the required elements of a standard Pearl of Virtual Wisdom. Beyond their mere existence, and presence here in their correct slots, I make no claims; doing so could seriously affect not only any honor I might possess, but could easily destroy all the fragile equilibrium I have so recently attained. So, I won’t.

What I will do is demonstrate some compassion, by NOT bombarding y’all here in the intro with any of the usual supply of dross, or drivel, or even doggerel. Instead, I’ll note my feelings of relief and gratitude for the passing of the recent unpleasantness. The process of enduring the crap so ubiquitous during the election frenzy is exhausting, so, it’s a pleasant contrast to only have to listen to the moaning and groaning from all those who didn’t get what they wanted. Especially since having to listen is easily controlled, by switching off any TV’s, radios, or other venues that might regale me with such idiocy.

Yes, the election has made me grumpy, but, that’s nothing new, right? For now, let’s just get on with getting this mess done, and posted. To do that, we’ll have to get started, so, let’s just do that, right here, right now….

Shall we Pearl?….

“A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away.
He must have time to modify his shape.”

Today’s musical selection once again falls into our default category because, yes, I’m lazy, and didn’t feel like even thinking about another genre….It’s okay, we’ll all be fine; today, and the future, will demand much of us, so we must learn to “go with the flow”, so to speak…. Enjoying it is the simplest solution, ffolkes…. Reportedly, this collection comes with a slide show of great works of art… Bonus!….

I know I’m in the now, if only…..

Oh, there it is again, fiddle faddle;
Begone, I said, vamoose, skedaddle!
It looked at me as if I were insane:
Scoffed, it did, filled me with pain.

Where does it come from?
Where does it live?
I’d stick out my thumb,
if I had more to give.

If only, should, would, could it be?
It went away again, this time free.
It will be back again, this I know;
or I’m wrong, and it won’t show.

Who cares?
Who hears?
Such goings on wobble the sphere,
I wish it wouldn’t do that here.

I’ve been wrong before…..

*******

I’m running late, thanks to a small fur-bearing extortionist, and my own demons. No complaints, just a comment, made only because SB decided to be uncooperative. Here’s an old, old-school pearl from a while back that will fit the necessary bill neatly…. It’s a bit random, and silly to boot, but, what the hell….

From 1/11/2015:

I’m feeling a bit silly today, along with the normal (!!!…) degree of angst over the news; Smart Bee was sympathetic enough to find the perfect group of pearls with which to address both emotional states at once…. Go figure, eh? This one is both fun, and quite pointed, with some sharp thorns adorning the roses…. There were a lot of them, so, brace yourselves, and for goodness sake, put down your adult beverages so you don’t spew on the keyboard….

“I drank what?” — Socrates

“The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that still carries any reward.” — John Maynard Keynes

“We have had no good comic operas of late, because the real world has been more comic than any possible opera.” — G. K. Chesterton, The Quotable Chesterton

“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.” — Hanlon’s Razor

“Good God,” said Arthur, “it looks just like the sea front at Southend.”
“I’m relieved to hear you say that,” said Ford.
“Why”
“Because I thought I must be going mad.”
“Perhaps you are. Perhaps you only thought I said it.”
Ford thought about this.
“Well, did you say it, or didn’t you?” he asked.
“I think so,” said Arthur.
“Well, perhaps we’re both going mad.”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “we’d be mad, all things considered, to think this was Southend.”
“Well, do you think this is Southend?”
“Oh, yes”
“So do I.”
“Therefore we must be mad.”
“Nice day for it.”
“Yes,” said a passing maniac.
“Who was that?” asked Arthur.
“Who–the man with the five heads and the elderberry bush full of kippers?”
“Yes.”
“I don’t know. Just someone.”
“Ah.”

— From The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

“It is an interesting question how far men would retain their relative rank if they were divested of their clothes.” — Henry David Thoreau

“If you ever reach total enlightenment while you’re drinking a beer, I bet it makes beer shoot out your nose.” — Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handey

“If a lawyer and an IRS agent were both drowning, and you could only save one of them, would you go to lunch or read the paper?” — Smart Bee

“When something irritates you, think of this: How else would we get pearls?” — Smart Bee

“For to err in opinion, though it be not the part of wise men, is at least human.” — Plutarch (46-120 AD) — Against Colotes

Finally, to finish off this nonsense, we move on to what good ol’ Socrates said, immediately after voicing his surprise, as related in the opening line of this pearl….

“Sure, everyone always said ‘Socrates what is the meaning of life?’ or’Socrates how can I find happiness?’…. Did anyone ever say ‘Socrates, hemlock is poison.’???????” — Socrates, minutes before death

********************************

I really haven’t a clue how this got done, but, since it is, I’ll go post it. I’ll even issue our standard warning/disclaimer, by letting you know, I’ll be back tomorrow, hopefully in a more rational state…. See ya, ffolkes….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.

  1. Great album art…..I too am glad it is over now I have something to focus on once again….foreign policy…I have been in DTs without it…LOL

    “Besides that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?” chuq

  2. “There is no safety in numbers, or in anything else.”

    ~~ James Thurber ~~

    There is safety in
    nothing
    else
    but
    within me..
    i practice that
    with more arts
    in Yoga Unity
    with nature all
    Bliss is safe for now..
    dam.. wish i could take
    more folks with me.. but
    they too.. must seek/find it and
    practice it within as safeway comes
    in eYes
    isREaL..
    transform..move..
    connect.. create.. rise
    Beauty of fully aLIVe..:)

    Pain is an interesting thing my
    friend.. it comes in so many ways
    of liFe.. dARk.. liGht.. and ‘tween
    sHades of grey.. beYond rainbow colors
    too.. perHaps even more iN iN Bi-polar colors too..
    but anyway.. i’ve ‘seen’ the worst pain in the world
    as medically assessed for human..
    evaporate
    in a split second
    observed the feeling
    sensing of hell again
    and somehow master
    painless now with control
    of will.. with these abilities as healing
    ones that obviously i innately
    instinctually intuit most
    animals in the
    wild have too..
    also..
    problem
    is.. we live life out
    there instead of in ‘here’..
    lEarninG mastery of Emotionally
    regulating life including integrating
    senses that includes pain.. i stepped on
    Arthur.. our 20 years older cat then with
    my 220 lbs then.. thank God.. before
    approaching 240 now.. bottom
    line he walked away
    unscathed..
    with no sign of pain..
    not even having to recover
    like i would if someone stepped on
    me in the olden days too.. there is a wild healing
    that exceeds all of medicine my friEnd and that healing
    is developed innately.. instinctually.. intuitively within and
    the only words religion or science has for it when it goes down for iSREaL
    is a miracle or unexplained phenomenon.. we could even call it a UFO too.. for
    all practical intents and purposes as they not identified what it is yet..
    it’s safe to say it is a higher
    power and it exists
    as at least
    in my
    case
    it is in the
    history of my medical records iSREAL..
    seriously.. i have pains.. sometimes severe ones
    still that come.. but i melt them a way with a whim
    of God that lives in higher potential as nature within me..
    and i couldn’t do that for 66 months until the power came and
    was mastered within.. and i increase that power as nows go on..
    with
    will
    and mastery
    in positive light
    that is simply positive
    emotions and senses same..
    as
    isreaL..
    i can show folks in
    Moving arts what it looks
    like on the outside.. as i can
    gain bliss of runners high that i used
    to experience noW in less than 5 seconds with
    just one float around whirl of moVinG aRT iN nirvana now..
    it is the inside pArt beyond words that makes that happen..
    and that my
    friend
    is the
    seeking and
    finding and practicing
    point.. that those who do not
    believe in ‘woo’ of miracles beyond
    current science will never find if they
    never start believing there is more to this
    life than meets the current textbooks of walls
    in empirical fact for now.. and yes.. all the structural
    infirmities can still be observed with X-Rays.. CAT scans
    and all the rest.. but what thAt can’t see is the God my friend alive and well
    in higher potential working full-time now within.. i try to paint a picture
    but no word
    or symbol
    can full cover heaven now
    for that my friEnd is a liVinG
    ‘thing’ always changing for more positive liGht within..
    yeah..
    the
    ‘thing’..:)

    WiNks..
    no thanks..
    i’LL stay ’round..;)

    “I drank what?”

    — Socrates

    it’s kind of the opposite
    saying of when folks
    ask.. can
    i have
    some
    of what you(me)
    are drinKing friend..;)

    “The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that still carries any reward.” — John Maynard Keynes

    Haven’t paid any federal
    income taxes in decades..
    and have
    George
    W Bush
    to thank for that..
    in simply following a code for
    more
    free
    stuff..
    it’s hilarious that folks call that dude conservative..
    and worth noting that ‘most P grabbers’ are not all that conservative either..;)

    Kinda like the big bad
    wolf and
    old coke..
    blow
    blow
    blow
    your house party away..;)

    And speaking of that it’s worth
    noting on the ever changing
    multi-colored lizard in
    our back yard
    that Trump
    supported Universal
    Trump Care before bowing
    to other target audience pressures
    and even supported LBQT rights at
    the Republican convention with delight
    in watching the minions roar with thunderous
    applause.. no different really than Charlie Chaplin
    in his role reversal as Jew to the Hitler minions
    for human rights of equal freedom too.. perhaps
    he was just testing the waters.. and worth noting
    that
    ‘no one’
    in terms of
    selling AFAIK
    can become
    a billionaire
    ‘no matter
    what’ unless
    they understand marketing
    101 and appealing to the target
    audience at hand.. yes.. there are minions..
    but don’t underestimate legs of lambs in wolf clothing..
    poor/rich/poor yes/no metaphor.. but hey.. if you really wanna leave a
    legacy you go
    for
    broke..
    and do
    what it takes
    for change.. perhaps
    the orange is a little fox colored too..
    mY
    friend..
    hey.. i leave
    open big hotel
    room for change
    as sure.. i am an
    isREaL Hyde and Jekyll
    too.. good cop Hyde i hope to stay..
    what does the Fox say anyWay wHo reAlly juST does iT..
    and gets
    the JOB
    dONE.. as pLay..;)

    Back to Charlie
    Chaplin it’s
    all
    funny
    from big
    picture masterpiece
    theater and painting view..
    and hell no/yes.. believe it or not
    ‘horatio’.. i’m
    not
    kidding..

    “Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”

    Sacred clowns/holy/mad/fools/eTc.. aL..
    through out history
    have
    proven
    stupidity
    is an
    art of Brilliance
    too.. again.. it’s understanding
    marketing 101 and the target audience @hand..;)

    “It is an interesting question how far men would
    retain their relative rank if they were divested of their clothes.”

    — Henry David Thoreau

    It’s worth noting that the pleasurable
    human feeling of feeling rank and status
    is simply neuro-chemicals in great balance
    along with neuro-hormones including associated
    rise of androgens as far as this passage goes where
    men are concerned.. and it’s also worth noting that
    the greatest
    warriors
    noted
    in myths
    legends and
    perhaps real history
    too.. fought naked..
    anyway.. like all stuff life..
    it’s not the form of rank that counts
    iN status or power.. it’s the feeling oF it
    iN EmoTioNs and SeNSEs.. and to master
    that Essence within
    now
    is to
    be
    slave
    to no one
    in Kingdom come
    now.. where a King has
    no subjects but free.. the ultimate
    place of heaven now.. as do not doubt it
    we are just human animals like any other ape in this sense/feeling now..
    thing that
    sets us
    apARt
    is we can
    make a story
    book real in new
    imaginative and creative
    ways that does not reflect
    our so called form or place in overall society
    at large.. sure.. it’s a needle and society is
    the camel.. is it possible.. FucK yes.. i
    prove
    that
    isReaL
    every FucKinG noW..;)

    “If you ever reach total enlightenment
    while you’re drinking a beer, I bet it
    makes beer shoot out your nose.”

    — Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handey

    It’s not that i have anything really
    against folks drinking and doing
    drugs for recreation..
    iN heaven
    all that
    stuff
    WiLL
    only bring
    me down.. now.. honestly..
    i would/will spit it out
    forcefully
    from
    where
    ever
    it goeS in..
    tHeRe ain’t no
    driNk or drugs
    for this place called heaven for me..
    seriouSly.. the thOught of drinking a beer
    of even a cup of coffee is like poison in heaven now.. to me..
    and sure.. i enjoyed a moderate amount before i arrived in heaven now..:)

    “If a lawyer and an IRS agent were both drowning,
    and you could only save one of them, would you
    go to lunch or read the paper?”

    — Smart Bee

    If i was a good enough
    swimmer i would save
    them both..
    and
    FucKinG
    break all
    the rules..
    limits and
    expectations
    of before..
    BUT..
    i am
    not
    and not
    willing to
    die for no reason..
    Order is here for a reason..
    as are the conservative folks
    who make the rules.. and that my
    frienD is the square root of problem
    number one that humans are not evolved
    to live peacefully in groups of more than 150
    to 200 sets of eyes.. order is required for the well
    being of all.. and human language is symbol and
    only approximate tool for truth and light.. and it takes
    order to rule money collected for a big city of humans not
    evolved like this to live peacefully too.. it’s a pipe dream to
    suggest we
    are all going
    to get along
    fine.. without
    someone with
    the skills to interpret
    abstract concepts attempting
    to make literal concrete laws..
    or the same to collect enough
    money for roads to get to the
    all one can eat fats and sugars palace
    either.. this new version of Libertarian
    is for folks who have never studied Anthropology 101
    either
    in class
    or in direct contact and
    with enough numbers
    in iSreal class too.. now..
    as participant observer as such
    after Hurricane Katrina too in a very
    heterogenous society that is nothing
    like a Scandinavian country where it used
    to be where a person could leave their baby
    left unintended but only in a homogenous country
    where a welfare state ruled for all in abundance of enough..
    will
    never
    work
    in a place
    like this as
    Nature rules
    human always now..
    AFAIK from experience of
    literally dealing one to one
    with hundreds of thousands of folks over decades too..
    both offline
    and online too..:)
