the thing about nothing

...

Is that it is something, but unlike other things, it cannot begin or end. It cannot be else than eternal and infinite in every sense. Distance, duration, dimension, in whatever permutation of those or anything you add or subtract or dream up. Mox nix. Nothing is something and it IS supreme, abounding everything, everything, everything, real or imagined.

The other big distinction about nothing is that it is clearly — vividly clearly — CONSCIOUS. We might want to question its intelligence, or its creativity, or its morals, but we can't question the consciousness of nothing because EVEN nothing will agree that there never would be, even for a nanosecond, anything if it were not.

So, I listened to this guy, even though he's screwy on a few fronts, because he has things to say that make for good points to consider, to ponder, to propel you into thinking more deeply about stuff... and that's not bad. That's very good.

And, it also might end up making you stop liking to diss the snot out of anyone who takes the word "God" seriously. There is one. It's just useless to anthropomorphize God because God is the one thing impossible to wrap your head around. No matter what there's never not going to be SO much more God than you can blame for shit that you will literally fry out all your circuits in such a ludicrous effort.

God, though, is, ultimately, a really wonderfully loving and compassionate something because God lets you EXPERIENCE God, and anyone who already has knows immediately when you are only faking it.

It is not you; you actually are it.

And I don't think she should have lasted through any month, but, of course, it's not up to me and nobody listens to me anyway. And Gilad Atzmon weighed in a few days ago on their politics and his own contemplations on the matter of time.
The Left’s vision of temporality is a linear structure of historical progress that proceeds from ‘a past’ to ‘a future.’ Left ideology is structured around an ever progressing time line. The Left always promises to make things better in the future, to fight austerity, to care for the many not the few, to bring about equality and tolerance, etc. None of this is happening at present. This leaves the Left as a promise that is supposed to fulfill itself in an imaginary ‘tomorrow.’
He omitted mention of the fact that they never deliver because that would mean there would be no further misperceived need for them.

Then he continues making pretty much the same case for the right, only, just like a cement-brained fogey, he perpetuates the bit about fascism being the right wing's thing... just as though he is completely blind to the fascism that is fully endorsed by the left wing, AND fails to acknowledge that people like Nigel Farage are not "right wing" by virtue of not agreeing with the "left wing", that they transcend the old classifications by virtue of not being for any wing but the new one we might want to call the "actually solve problems wing".

That gets denigrated by calling it "populist". It's just plain popular and if that is a slur in a democracy your lucidity needs calling into question. Bottom line: These lizards driving their human suits need outing and real people need to take over.

Jim's brand new and expensive router blew up in a power surge slash outage right before I got to their house, so we all had to act like pre-internet adults... actually even pre-tv adults, thank you... and drink and laugh and scratch and argue and read things and get our sleep, all that stuff.

Driving amid the holiday weekend pinheads was not too awful. Only cursed at a few and not even in a raised voice. And, of course, I remembered to pay attention to the GORGEOUS springtime out there. The redwoods are a vast choir of joy from all the rain.

My crumbling hovel is still standing and still marginally functional... and not too damp... considering. My poor neighbor made the grievous mistake of welcoming me home and helping me unpack my car. I was telling her about my ludicrous pre-trip fall and the gorgeous bruises therefrom when she — empath that she is — tripped over my doorstop and landed on her knees. So we're both hobbling now.

Maybe I'll bring her some roses from my "garden" tomorrow....

That could end up actually bearing the fruits of justice.

Just a thought.

Cuz both are liars and both might be lying.

Billy got another one of those wing nut emails again this morning that was trying to tie the Bergdahl thing with Benghazi and I don't have a clue, or care anymore, because it is known that the deaths on the other 9/11 were about covering up the movement of our weapons between our terrorists.

Corruption, lying, death, terror, war, social engineering... all in the game.

Not bloody likely. Should've thought of that before taking up with psychopaths.

And on the Weird Turned Pro front, there is a possibility my computer will be living with Jim for the next week or so while he diagnoses and possibly fixes what ails it. If that happens it's going to be darn quiet around here, but it will be for a good cause and not because I'm chained to a hospital bed somewhere.
