When I was very young I came to the conclusion that nobody else in the world but me had this silent stream of thoughts going thru their head.
For reasons long forgotten now; I also briefly thought that I arrived here as an old man who got younger the longer he lived...until one day soon I would just pop out of existence.
My earliest memory is of getting a bath from mom, looking down at my baby feet and recognizing what that meant, thinking to myself, (in babyspeak) "Oh hell no, not again!!"
Looking back...it's a way of assessing how far we have come in this sojourn.
The flood of memories released by a certain song, letting me know I'm still alive in here somewhere...changed, different from that old me, still here just the same.
Evening news shows aerial view of the rush hour crawl...looking very much like blood flowing thru arteries & veins...The arteries are clogged with mindless congestion -
We're dying down here.
But it's a good death. Death by non-involvement. Not showing up for our lives.
The latest school shooting happens in the town I used to live in, affected people I know. Talking head reporter says "It's the worst school shooting since earlier this year".
We're inhaling fear & exhaling anger in a paranoia cocktail of sanity resistant fear and apathy; staring into the faceless waters of oblivion.
11 million defective airbags, with insufficient replacement parts. Overshadowed by the earth shaking news that the queen is now on twitter...and they even faked the photo op of course. She was supposedly sending out her first tweet from a tablet, but the messages were sent from a smart phone. Fucking amateurs. You can give a queen all the gadgets you want...doesn't mean she's in touch with shit!
Another white house fence jumper, an attack in parliament and a hatchet murder in NYC.
We're all just telling ourselves a story
Six years of smelly, stagnant gridlock and obstructionism then chocolate freedom sends our national guard to Africa !! What the Fuck??
Mexican drug cartels in the Emerald Triangle protect their marijuana grows by cutting the rattles off of rattlesnakes; then tying their tails to shrubbery...turning them into deadly security guards.
Space station re-supply rocket explodes upon launch, three days later, spaceship2 dies in Mojave: as I watch the videos I can't help thinking how symbolic...
We're going backwards.
A home run with bases loaded in the world series brings 100,000 fans screaming to their feet. Too bad we cannot manage that much passion for things that really matter.
Postal service wants to stop Saturday delivery; & begin delivering on Sunday; despite delivering my mail 12 miles away...
Humanity in retrograde.
The exaltation of ignorance demands the demonizing of science; denial of truth. False equivalency masquerades as intellectual process to obscure the truth from sleeping dreamers...as fear is used to herd the human cattle in the desired direction.
It's a shame they never see sham
This year the salmon runs are the lowest in nearly 50 years. The fishing fleet moored, the bears and eagles are starving... Media inundates with torrents of zombie movies and TV shows...programming the masses to de-value human life. Doesn't bother me nearly as much as how many people resonate to such a low vibration.
Jesus said "Love One Another" - We're being taken in the opposite direction.
We used to follow the Grateful Dead back in the day....now it's the walking dead...
Going backwards.... by conscious intent.
I have this list of friends who have all departed this realm...It seems to get longer every year. I've added three names this year. Life in retrograde.
Compromise eventually becomes selling out, & every time we do it we sell off a piece of our soul; which explains why there are so many soul-less zombies moving thru this dystopian landscape.
The world is drowning in profits yet there's no prophets to be found anywhere.
World's leading manufacturer of pesticides also making the genetically modified food-like-products we consume; all while waging war on American farmers and natural crops.
Food should be ethical as well as edible...GMO'S are neither!
Just saw this years first commercial for Black Friday: They've turned getting trampled and beaten up in a rush for bargains on cheap junk into an annual blood sport event...like the running of the bulls. Pathetic.
As if we need any further evidence that humanity has now reached the lowest possible common denominator of social interaction: I give you twerking! Like most social fads I totally ignored twerking until I saw a story about a woman being assaulted while doing it. A brief visit to YouTube answered most of my questions except why she wasn't arrested; for inciting a moron?
We're not just going backwards; we're falling head over heels backwards over a cliff.
We're in freefall...the twerking dead
I have this recurring nightmare which comes around more frequently these last few years. I'm walking down a long sandy beach on a beautiful day, with hundreds of people doing all the things we do at the beach. Looking into the water I can clearly see a great many shark fins plying the waters. Suddenly swimmers are being pulled under screaming, and eaten alive. The lifeguards are all asleep, or showing off for the girls, or just MIA. There are a few others who see the same things I do, and we begin yelling at everyone, SHARK, SHARK, SHARK, but everyone just ignores us as if they are deaf. People walk right into the same surf where they can see others dying, convinced that they are somehow immune from disaster.
I think the next time I have this nightmare I'm gonna start rooting for the sharks.
Earth will have over 11 billion inhabitants before the end of the century; even at the rate we're presently being killed off. Look out, here comes cloning and transhumanism to save the day, and finally erode whatever may be left of our collective souls.
Resist the chip !
Researchers say that 3% of the population are psychopaths, lacking empathy and compassion: psychopaths who prey upon the rest of humanity without remorse. Sound familiar? It's because so many of them have risen to positions of power & authority. The "system" is designed to reward and promote psychopaths & sociopaths.
This new age of Aquarius is supposed to be all about the evolutionary advancement of humanity; which pretty much calls for the dismantling of the system in favor of something which promotes the well being of 100 % of the population, not just the 1%. Unfortunately for the majority of us the psychopaths in control play by their own rules and the thing they have most in mind right now is depopulation.
Stay tuned-in and follow the instructions when they show up on your TV !
I stare in sad disbelief as I watch that aerial view of the freeway at rush hour on the evening news. Sad that so very many across this land are captive in the same gridlock quagmire of drive time...the same exact scene around every major city, every day, every year. Disbelief that so many people are still sound asleep dreaming that American dream as their efforts prop up the facade for one more day, for one more week...
After all these years I am now of the notion that of course we don't age backwards...
But sometimes I still wonder if I'm the only one with this silent stream of thoughts in my head.
