Aloha to White House!

Check this out. Designed this mask for myself initially, but the White House liked the idea too. Jill’s got it going on, while en route to Hawai’i. Pretty awesome, brah!

Here is the design I was submitting to an online printer as a prototype back in April this year. I have the digital file if anyone wants it for themselves. (scroll down for link)

The Birth of Logic

This is something just came to me because I’ve been thinking about My Dog the Raptor and the traits and mimic thinking to lizards and birds. Also, I need to make a flow chart for a project I’ve been brewing in my head. Where and when did the first logic happen?

We as a human race have considered that our universe began with a bang, or a burst, or a spark!

It didn’t begin at a brain process that made sense. No, that came millions of years later, maybe billions of years later.

The birth of logic may have come at the very beginning of THIS UNIVERSE. THIS INSTANCE OF EXISTENCE. The beginning of all beginnings known and unknown.

Where and when is this?

Oops, let me note I do not watch programs like NOVA or any science programs any more. This is just stuff off the top of my head. I used to watch lots and lots, so it’s possible I am touching on theories mentioned before.

Being a poet and a fan of science fiction I JUST CAME TO THIS CONCLUSION. The birth of logic is the first instant, no matter how small, when and where existence began. The very first smallest yet unnamed sub-particle of matter or antimatter. At it’s first occurrence, the first moment of logic. It didn’t have to be logical or illogical. Just a form of logic. A beginning. That’s all it was.

Today, to understand my thinking on what a beginning is. Have a friend stand absolutely still, with their eyes closed. Now witness them make a change. That can be thought of as a beginning. From being thought of as being still, no movement to a subtle change. That is the first moment of logic. Something happened, and something witnessed it.

This artwork could be interpreted as “many instances”, “many beginnings”. We are not absolutely certain the beginning of our universe did not begin with just a single happening… suddenly, “stuff just appeared”, instead of a BANG! or POP!

Thanks for reading! Hope you are inspired. You don’t have to believe in everything I write. It’s just reading, and NOT required. Have a peaceful rest of your day or night. =)

An Artificial Atmospheric Layer

I just wrote about a concept of an Engineered Cold Wave, while we are in a record breaking heat wave in the western United States. I went and did the dishes in the sink by hand, because I rarely use a mechanical dish washer. It gives me a little empty time to think, feel water flowing over my hands, and scrubbing away the remains of a meal or snack. Why is this important? Details and reasons, and meaningfulness. That careful use of water has great meaning as can you imagine if I had NONE?

I’ve always found plastic wrap fascinating and underused. What if we created a man-made layer of atmosphere that was plastic wrap thin, tough as ‘transparent aluminum'(Star Trek reference) but had the ability to span a hundred of square miles at a time? Large enough to influence a microclimate. Almost controllable as a very very slow moving drone copter? The nature of the fabric or whatever vinyl or future material is to allow it to create varying opacity, and have mechanical vents for controlling air passing through or not. I believe I am imagining this layer to act like a see-through vinyl that can be very flexible instead of something rigid like glass or acrylic. I am speaking of the nature of the design, not the actual elements nor materials. We may have to invent something. Especially something that can also capture and use solar power, and self-heal so we don’t have to send humans or robots on daily/hourly repair jobs.

This (below) may be an ideal environment. Just about ANYTHING can live in it.

This shows another environment, grass lands (below). It can sustain animals, but look what kind. Pure carnivores. These animals do not eat vegetables or fruits. The prey eat only grass.

Global Cooling, an Engineered Cold Wave

The Earth IS WARMING, constantly. More people, more industry to support it. It will NOT reverse on its own. It isn’t possible. It needs an outside influence.

Warmer air and land, the ice melts and there is less of it to chill the air, the water blends in with the oceans, and globally the seas are rising. That cool water mixes with warm water and gets sent around and warms. It’s like putting ice in a glass of warm water. In cool water the ice stays formed longer, in hot water the ice melts and blends in with the water. Overall the water temp cools but if the glass and the room the glass is in is warm, that glass will eventually be as warm as it.

“We have the technology.” – The Six Million Dollar Man

Indeed we do, we just haven’t used it on such a scale. Science fiction has though, and I’m going to suggest finding a way to make it happen for REAL.

Here is the question we have asked and answered already: “How do we instantly freeze water?” Start with DRY ICE. Yes, find a way to make it continuously and cool the Earth’s waters. That’s a good start. Then the climates globally will change. Wind, rain, evaporation, temperature will change. Then see about THE AIR ITSELF too boost the chill.

Another way to help things is TO CLEAN THE AIR. It is more contaminated than it was even yesterday. Those contaminates change the nature of air and its ability to hold water and how it handles temperature. Of course, bad air isn’t good for plant life, which creates oxygen from carbon dioxide… and removing excess CO2 helps the air stay healthier and cooler too.

Along with cleaner air, maybe there is a man-made way to create cloud cover we can control better. In other words, help PREVENT evaporation in areas so the water stays longer in the earth below. Instant cloud covers to protect a lake and forest area for instance. Not sure how to do it, I am not studying those sciences daily. I know there are experts. I’m just dropping images.

Love by words. I care about the world around us. It belongs to each of us.

Theory of Relative-IT-Ties

My theory of ‘Relative-I.T.-Ties’. If enough people stand close together in the same area of the world the spin could change ever slightly. I bet this could happen virtually, on the internet a lot easier though!

(Relative-Internet Technology-Ties)

It’s Independence Day, the Fourth of July in the United States today. Where I am it is warm, but a threat of flash floods. Guess it is muggy outside, like for an impending rain… Inside, my puppy has been high energy and barking/dog talking a lot. I’ve had to come up with new props and extended gaming/play and stop doing my computer-based work and research so many times! People in the distance doing their get-togethers including BBQs. Be safe, be sure, don’t swim with sharks and look before you dive into any deep end!

Critical Race Theory

I started reading on this, and it is too early to pull my final thoughts on this.

What I was to say from the beginning, is that I wish EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING had a better understanding of the human race en totale. I’ve found it very alarming at how little each person knows how another person works. I feel EDUCATION is the key to the future of complete population sentience1. True understanding of people. The ones you live with, the ones driving by in other cars, the ones on television, the ones you read about. Understanding is the first step on the bridge to a bond. We as individual humans should be bonded to the people of our race, no matter the upbringing, color of our major skin pigment, foods we eat, movies we watch, religions we believe in or not.

More later…

1. Mostly I believe the average person is an idiot to other people. The root cause(s) may vary.

Responses to Articles

I’m really going to have to spend more than a handful of minutes reading on this. I can see there is a divide regarding the faith behind it. “Critical Race Theory”. So here is an article I just read. Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It – Imprimis (hillsdale.edu) This really surprised me; the idea it should be immediately stopped, prevented and thrown away. So far, even just reading this article I sense C.R.T. is an attempt at a correction of perception for those still learning and not stuck in their old ways. Maybe my attitude is that I don’t fear it, and maybe this writer does. I am curious to see where C.R.T. goes. I have a feeling, just with reading even this negative writer that it is going to be around a while. Is it just a large sweeping pendulum swing that’s worrying this writer? Is he being an alarmist or just a pessimist? I am truly glad the United States, my home country is ALLOWING lessons of C.R.T. This country is about learning, openness, even trial and error. Also, there is plenty of room and opportunity to criticize C.R.T. teachings. Maybe over time they won’t have to be so hard-hitting, and just brief mentions. Not sure how Democracy and cultural and racial balances are in other countries, but I see by the ongoing news the U.S.A. is still messing up.

Note: Right now I am writing without editing much. There is potential I’ll change this blog post significantly.

Hidden Messages in the News Media

Update: scroll past these paragraphs to read the story I wrote online LIVE the other day.

I wrote on my private Twitter account today the importance of of KNOWING THE CONDITIONS(Such as are the same people available? Does it make sense to steal money from someone who already has less than you? Should you really invite your old friend to visit and insist they play football with you when you have a broken leg or they do?) of what is actually going on around you before you do anything triggered by what you read or watch in the news media. What I saw recently were OLD MESSAGES from decades ago, and what I fear is that old contacts may try to do old tasks, and new people may take the messages differently and do something that does not pertain, does not make sense, and could even back fire on themselves. Just be very careful when trying to match what you’ve been told in the past with what is currently being said around you.

To the criminals: Ordering repeat hits may be sending the wrong messages to your own people, and other people who know about them. What if you ordered someone to have their car stolen because it was a beautiful Mercedes that could be given to someone else or sold black market? And you order the same hit years later… only to have an old Ford Fiesta show up with your driver who says, “Hey, this is the only car the guy has.” And then you get really upset because you saw a beautiful new Mercedes on the target’s Facebook page. Mad, you call up some people. “What happened? I thought he got a new Mercedes?” They respond, “No just a rental car for a few days to impress his old mom.”

Why was this last paragraph even mentioned? Because people, criminals…? Make hits on people they read about in the news. For instance, my family in the 1970s put a medium sized(vs. a little thumb sized) newspaper ad for their mom&pop small business–because business was down and they wanted new clients–and because it looked so good, criminals sought them out to steal money from them!

Here is a made up story(different than my Twitter epic!).

A neighbor is in the news because she is going through a divorce and she was known in her community, and has to close down a store she owned with her husband. Now, some people may read into the article. Oh, she’s divorcing him because she wants all HIS MONEY. So someone puts a hit on her to charge extra at a restaurant, or to have her car fixed–for years. Someone else says, “I don’t like women who divorce men, so I told my pals NOT to let her enjoy the ladies club pool–make sure children show up and make noise when she goes there!” But it turns out, the husband had asked her to divorce him so he could save face with his relatives. He even secretly bought her a new car. KNOW THE CONDITIONS.

I’ve decided to post the ORAL STORY I gave online via Twitter… though I typed it out. It is written as if spoken in person, and am talking to someone or a group. I didn’t edit the posts from what I copy and pasted from MY OWN Twitter account.


Public Messages

Premise
A story with a lesson, posted on Twitter June 28th, 2021. A warning about the meaning of public hidden messages.

“I wouldn’t do that. The same people are NOT in the same places.”

“If you use a blanket old message, you are setting forth attitudes and actions that may not fit at all, overall.”

“Here is an example of using an OLD message: There is a fire bell in the town square. In the old days, if it was rung, ALL the men and boys would go to the well and gather water, and prepare to save a house or store.”

“Decades later, someone rings the bell in earnest, because their house is on fire. But the fire department never got a phone call so they won’t get off their seats.”

“Worse, this person is so intent on ringing the bell some people get curious as ask him what is going on. He is frantically ringing it. But when asked, he replies, ‘I don’t have a home, I.. just wanted attention.”

“But because of the frantic ringing, someone had called the fire department and they started getting ready, slowly. And one of them came running to the man at the bell, ‘What’s going on?'”

“The frantic ringing draws in more people and the police show up and ask what is going on? We are supposed to me on COVID isolation, 6ft apart, no crowds!”

“Far away, in a little house an old man hears the bell. He was one of the firemen who saves homes and lives. Back then he was big and strong. Today he grabs some clothes and runs out of the house, falls down his stairs and breaks his fragile hip.”

“Meanwhile, because the bell was rung in a certain way… someone else heard it, and remembered what THEY were supposed to do. They were supposed to rob the neighbors home while they were gathering water. It was all preplanned…”

“But this person CHECKS THEIR KNOWLEDGE. They first smile to themself, well, this is decades later… and yes, looking out the window, those are different neighbors. And, we have cell phones for the fire department.”

“This person may have been programmed, have to get $10,000 to another person because that bell rang a certain way. Do they, grab a gun and rob someone else to accomplish this? Or maybe that neighbor is the same people, but they don’t have money. They were robbed decades ago.”

“The would-be robber gets a phone call while they are hesitating. Yelled at. Why are you NOT HERE? Apparently another house was a targeted, other side of town. And this guy didn’t get the message.”

“He responds, no one told me. So I still live here, in my original home.”

“The caller responds, you were supposed to be living on this side of town, why didn’t you move?”

“The would be robber responds, look, my job is on this side of town. Who was supposed to tell me to move?”

“The caller says a name, and the would be robber says, well he went off to war in Iraq. Never came back. So I’ve been here. (phone hangs up)”

“So the would be robber is sitting in his home, looking out the window at the target house. Knowing he has a gun under his bed he can use. Does he still need to get money from those people?”

“Because if that call was from who he thinks it was, HE is responsible for making sure those people get the money.”

“Now do you understand why OLD messaging should NOT be re-used? People may not be where they are supposed to be. Conditions may be very different too.”

“Is everyone expecting the would-be robber to grab his gun, go next door and threaten teenagers and their parents, and grandparents for money?”

“I’m going to write a short film screenplay based on today’s Twitter feed writing. I feel this is a VERY IMPORTANT LESSON.”

“What if one of the teenagers at the next door house is a child of one of the people across town who wants the money, and THEY DO NOT want their child harassed or accidently shot at?”

“NOT GUARANTEED SCENE: A mailman knocks at the door of the would-be robber’s home and gives him an envelope. Once back inside he opens it, it is a check for $10k, with no name on it. He could write his own on it, or CASH and just cash it.”

“CONTINUED: He decides to get that check to the people across the town, and they get the money and leave town again. The next door neighbor never gets disturbed, the would-be robber never even got his gun out from under his bed.”

“CONTINUED: The would-be robber watches the news. Those people he got the money to apparently left town and went overseas. They are in the news, murdered at a crime scene on CNN. They released a toxin on a train, and hundreds fell ill.”

“CONTINUED: The would-be robber watches the news intently, his neighbors must be too. He hears screaming from the next door home.”

“CONTINUED: There is an old man next door, in anguish because he knows what happened. He was NOT aware those people across town were in town to get money, so he did NOT warn his connections about the terrorist threat.”

“CONTINUED: The other screaming was the teenager who recognized the mug shots on CNN. One was a parent he thought was still in prison.”

“CONTINUED: On another day, the man who frantically rang the bell was discovered to be homeless and starving. He is peacefully eating a meal in jail. He had to punch some people at the town bell so he could keep ringing it.”

“CONTINUED: A weary FBI agent asks the homeless man through the bars. ‘Who told you to ring that bell?’ The homeless man answers, I was told if I rang it someone would give me a free meal.”

“CONTINUED: THE END.”

“MORAL OF THE STORY: Don’t be that teenager who punked the homeless guy into getting arrested for free food.”

My Dog the Raptor

I’ve been studying my dog. Yes, evolution is a beautiful thing.

What you don’t know is I have studied all kinds of birds in my lifetime. Not with video and still images, just watched them… and watched them. ALL SIZES. Pretty ones, ugly ones, and I do find chickens very funny! Pukuk!

My dog. Millions of years ago her fur was feathers. Her barks and howls are like bird calls. Sometimes alerts, some times just making notes on things around her. She perches and watches all around her. She can sit very still, then in a shot launches and runs like lightning! Those teeth are gorgeous! (designed for gorging too!) Yes, prehistoric. For tearing things, not pecking for bugs. Back in prehistory, this animal was big enough it needed to devour protein in quantity. Not the sweetness of flowers like a hummingbird, or bugs like many tough beaks. That muzzle used to be a beak millions of years ago. It is designed for aerodynamics and good breathing. This animal was designed for speed and catching up to things. Maybe even ate other ‘birds’. It thinks quickly. It smells things and listens for anything in the near and distance. It STUDIES. Birds even today… STUDY things. They may not write poetry like humans, but they take in a scene in simple ways. They are creating memories. Have you seen a dog chewing on things? A bird chewing on a cuttle bone? Ever play with a parrot and how they beak around like play-biting, or hanging on to your finger? Notice how pet birds, play with things, even water?

What did that last paragraph tell you? Dogs were NOT reptilian. They were birds.

Late Jurassic Archaeopteryx skull (prehistoric bird)

Dog skull (notice how the jaw got stronger)

What’s blowing my mind right now is, I can see (in my mind’s eye) how there could have been an era, a time when mammals and non-mammals interbred and had in-betweeners. For instance, if a dog was a bird millions of years ago… observe how they do NOT lay eggs but that fur was feathers. But, dogs have a litter(puppies birthed with placenta) like birds have a clutch of eggs. Coat of feathers, coat of fur–notice how dogs have distinctive colors, patterns, markings? Dogs do not sweat, neither do birds. They both pant though when overheated. I just realized my own dog has an outer coat(thicker, protective, water repellant) and an undercoat of fur(soft, finer) Frak! Battlestar my Galactica. This is real world, the one we live in. No loop nor iteration here.

I’ll be writing more on this… I need to find images that you’ll love. I know the theories of evolution go against the idea of God creating Earth and Man in a matter of days. But please, please understand your love of the Bible and studies. Realize, if YOU TRULY BELIEVE in the writings of the Bible, you’ll know that they used literal and figurative descriptions. In my mind, writings in the Bible are NOT FALSE. It just may not be all literal. But that’s just my interpretation. There was a time the world was in darkness. But, was that darkness simply a time of pure evil before man and woman? My impression is that the Garden of Eden was created long after the rest of the Earth was already growing, evolving. (I may come back and edit this paragraph. My dog is laying at my feet, trying to sleep. I need to too!)

No Fees for Reading About Democracy in the United States

I just realized there are some very important news and educational web sites that have fees for viewing their content. I completely understand the need for monetizing content. What I propose is, that ANY CONTENT RELATED TO CURRENT or HISTORICAL DEMOCRACY produced in the United States of America be FREE TO VIEW or WATCH. This is the article that inspired my thinking. It was free, but what if I had no money and had already exceeded the number of free articles I am allowed? NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC on JUNETEENTH.

Why free? Because it is the FOUNDATION of this country. Citizens and non-citizens should know all about it. Anyone spending any time here should know it well so they can participate and enjoy it fully.
