Lizard People

No not the elusive, shape-shifting creatures some conspiracy nuts blame for the supposed existence of the NWO. I’m talking about us. Humans. 

Someone once said that “homophobia” is a misnomer, that it is hatred, not fear, driving these people. 

Well, actually, it IS fear. 
Embedded in our very essence, buried so deep inside our make up, that it sits in the reptilian part of the brain, is the tribalism part. The one that fears things (and people) that (who) are different. 

Different skin color? Fear. 

Deformity? Fear. 

Homosexuality? Fear. 

Other language, religion, culture? Fear. 
We are a tribalistic bunch, and we act as such. To borrow a horrible quote of arbitrarily bunched up emotions “fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering”. (I’m not here to discuss semantics this time, because here it fits, oddly enough.)

Homophobia, Xenophobia, and what not else -phobia, IS aptly named. It’s fear fueling the hate, hate driving these people. It’s the lizard at the controls. 

But! 

It is not restricted to the politically right, it is also the left, the supposed libertarians, guilty of letting the lizard take the controls. Fear of vaccines, fear of science (like GMOs), fear of and hatred for progress/change/diversity in all ways – it is our human nature, our lizard nature. 

We do not understand this stuff / these people, which frightens us, thus we hate it/them. Out of fear. 

Overcoming this lizard brain thing isn’t easy, but us having achieved what we have achieved this far, I think it is not impossible. We overcame other embedded programming of our animalistic ancestry. Why not this one too? 
So. In closing, we must not fear, except fear itself. Let us overcome our lizard, and shut the lizard people out of the control centre. 

Tolerance and understanding.

Take care, A.

Nature…

This all happened around my home…makes me less feel like a big-city dweller, and more like living on the country side.

The nicer side of spring (a.k.a. the season of death)

 

Have a nice weekend!

Inspirational Bullshit

Because that is against human nature.
Because it is engrained in our very DNA.
It is what has made us as a species so successful.

Distrust, fear, hatred.

The driving force of most of human development, if not all. Without it we’d be loving hippies….living in caves.
Or buried in the back of the same by those that came and bashed our heads in.

Sure, we need to overcome this eventually.
But our time to evolve past our “programming” has not yet come.

Our time to move beyond our bronze age mythology hasn’t even arrived yet.
We still have horoscopes and religion and soothsayers and zodiacs and homeopathy. And those were our own inventions, things we made up, but haven’t yet discarded, despite it being proven bullshit. So, is it any surprise that we are still hostage to our genetics?

No.

At least not to me.

We are a killer species…and I hope we will survive long enough to overcome this, but realistically….

Take care,

Beating the Hippies, a touch of magic…

I am not one to easily dismiss the supernatural, I am guilty of magical thinking more often than not myself. But I am also a realistic fellow, and that provides for some devastatingly harsh reality collisions.

Remember the fuzz some “magical” thinking individuals made about 12/13/14 – “the last sequential date of the century, your special magic day!!!11” – Well the majoroty of the world writes the date like “Day – Month – Year”, so the “special” day was 13. 12. 14.
Not so special anymore, huh? (Once you take other calendars than the Christian one into account that supid date shite melts like snow thrown into lava….)

If you ponder these things for a mere minute, it all falls apart. There is NOTHING special about a date we humans made up. Or a time we made up.
Why?
It’s all as imaginary as the pink plush dragon unicorn octopus that keeps whispering these things to me!!

3:33 where you live, is, in actuality, 3:34 just a little distance away, and “officially” over in the next timezone it’s 4:33, or 2:33 if you wish. Make believe.
All of it.

But why stop there?
Solstice, for example, while, yes, that is something that is actually happening, it is nothing special. Or are we celebrating the martian solstice with the rovers there? No? Good.

Just empower your magical thinking and your imagination for a second and follow me on a crisscross ride, between spiritual things and scientific things:
You are an insignificant little thing, on an insignificant (relatively dry¹) planet, orbiting a not-so-special yellow G-Type star, in a tiny galaxy, in an almost infinite universe.
Why would powers/entities that surpass our meager three (or four) dimensional existence, care in the least about the anual happenings of a microscopic spec of dirt (and the beings on it) in this universe? Spirits/Ghosts that once were critters on this planet – maybe.
Powers higher up in the food chain (if they exist) – don’t give a shit about solstice. Or any other constellation of Earth-Moon-Sun.

Speaking of constellation.

Wait a few thousand years. Stellar drift will tear apart your oh so precious constellations. Shift your angle a bit – if humanity were to develop space travel to a nearby system f.e. – your constellations are fucked up.
So, saying that something is in the constellation of Orion and it takes a dump on the house of Pluto – stop smoking those roaches. They do you no good!

It is all empty silly crap, make believe, hollow, ritualistic nonsense. Like al of the religions out there: empty, maningless and dumb. If god, or gods, and other supernatural beings do exist (which I believe) – they do not give a shit about our holidays, our planet’s constellation to other planets, stars or the milky way. They don’t give a flying frak about dates and times. Stop spreading bovine waste products, and snap back to reality.

Oh, one last thing:
Stop pretending that “Mother Nature” is only that benign thing you perceive when you are in the woodlands, observing blooming flowers and dancing butterflies, while a deer leaks all over the undergrowth.
Mother nature – by default – is also a cold, lifeless, dark, barren rock in the depths of space. Mother nature is the surface of Venus – 460C sulfuric acid rain.
Mother nature is radioactive Uranium deposits, massextinction causing Gamma Ray Bursts and asteroids annihilating life on a planetary scale.
Mother nature is not your friend…
…it is not your enemy either.
It just is.
And you are condemned to obey nature, regardless of your date and time of birth, what constellation is fraking which planetary house up the nostrils, or whether you danced naked with the moths on the blue moon of 1969…

Take care,
A.

¹Before you shit you pants, yes. Earth is a rather dry place. Our planet’s surface is covered to two thirds with water, but the majority of earth’s mass is rock. Only 0,2% or less of Earth’s mass is water! Scientists discovered remnants of a planet that must have consisted to 20% of water. Imagine that! A planet sized ocean, deeper than anything we could imagine…so yes. We are on/in a dry patch of space…

Airrefresheners / Room sprays

A word to the people who make these: thank you for trying to combat the stenches of life, now would you kindly STOP MAKING EVERYTHING WORSE???

image

The image here is in German, it reads “Heaven freshness” and Lavender …. what DOES heaven actually smell like?
Really, I mean?
Ozone?
Thin air?
Ionised solar particles, allegedly smelling like welding?
This stuff don’t smell like that!
Or is it the limb removing cold they try to reach? Trust me – you can’t with a plastic bottle stored at room temperature.

And lavender!
We have lavender at home, and I can tell you that whatever this stuff smells like, it is not lavender.
If this label was honest it’d say “this smells like the color pink”. (Note, it doesn’t say “heavenly freshness” = “himmlische frische”)

Speaking of the label – Aqua Nature?
Come on!
This is as far from Nature as (in)humanly possible, a name like that isn’t even acceptable for some fancy, bottled water, and definitely not for an airrefreshener!
And while we’re at it, water is color and odorless.
Odorless!
So, no, you can’t call your heavy scented, chemical cluster frak anything related to water, or nature.

Before I close today’s post, one last thing: I hope that the date printed on the back of this is the date it was bottled, not an expiration date. Because if it is one, we have long run out of it, which might explain the stenchsmell…

Take care, and open a damn window, people…

Mass extinctions

You may or may not have heard about mass extinctions.

If you are from a bible humping (yes humping) part of the world, mass extinctions are a new and satanic concept to you, as everything is no older than 6000 years. If you are from that crowd still believing this – go away.

There have been a few mass extinctions in earth’s history. Caused by a multitude of things:
◆Meteorite impact, the most popular one, dinosaur killer. 😉
◆Super volcano, the misnomer, it was less a volcanic eruption, like the super pimple on earth’s face like Yellowstone, but the earth tearing open, spewing forth gas, lava, gas, soot, gas, ash and gas into the atmosphere and killing much of life through a mixture of suffocation and climate change (aka Volcanic winter).
◆Gamma Ray Burst, it is deadly lightning from space. When “nearby” a star goes nova, or shit dives into a black hole, from the poles of the nova or the blackhole, a massive blast of concentrated gamma radiation is shot out. If the earth is in the path of this highly concentrated ray – the side of the earth turned into the ray, is immediately sterilised – Pop out of a shelter or a time machine a second later, and do open heart surgery in the dirt. That sterilised!
The Ozone layer is wrecked, allowing for the sun to do in the other side of the planet.

And lastly, my favorite. The first mass extinction event ON earth, was caused by creatures FROM earth.

Tiny single cell organisms, who breathed earth’s ancient atmosphere, which lacked oxygen, exhaled just that – oxygen. They exhaled so much of that which we need to survive, that they bereft themselves of something to breathe, and they changed the climate – it got cooler due to the oxygen, and they died in massive numbers.

Now, did we ever stop to consider, that, we might be the next incarnation of this?
We can’t kill ALL life on the earth, but like those buggers back then, we would change conditions to a state where we can’t live any longer, taking most of life currently present with us into oblivion.
This planet is a self correcting system, we may or may not be a failure. Our purpose from the start may have been to act as a reset button. Clean the slate, and life starts over.
Again.

Now, we could try and avoid this, in which case we can spread out (to space!), evolve, and be one with nature. But if we don’t, nature doesn’t care.
Self correcting system. An answer to our age old question: “Why are we here?” -“Mass extinction, anal orifice!”

Take that environmentalists! You are preventing nature from self correcting! Mindless, meddling fools!

Backwards Religion

Sometimes when you look around and actually contemplate what we do to the planet, you must have the same conclusion that I had.

Religion got things backwards.

If god and devil would truly exist, we must’ve come from the latter.
God created the heavens, the earth, oceans and so on. And in defiance of god, the devil created one thing, and ONE THING alone, that would frak up God’s creation:

A being that can make fire, craft tools and weapons to kill god’s creations, and lay waste to everything on earth:
MAN.

Some of the things commanded unto man in the bible(s) sound pretty devilish too. We should make use of the land (no matter what)? We should go forth and procreate (like a fraking virus)?
All words of a malevoelnt entity wanting to destroy the creation of it’s arch enemy.

Then god steps in puts some commandments down, and tries to halt that shit. Tries to drown us all, but someone was wiese and quick enough to build an ark. Probably under the influence of a double agent in the supernatural war of magnificence between god and devil.

The more you think of it, the more you have to realise the whole thing sounds also pretty schizophrenic. Maybe there is no devil, but god has two personalities.

Or it’s just fairytales for adults in the god damn desert, where the occassional Thursday rain looks like a damn flood.

All in all, let’s not make use of the land the way we do now and did in the recent past. Let’s live in accordance with nature. Take our que from nature, the water and we must flow together, not fight against one another…
