Orion Region and Lyman Alpha

As seen by the Hubble and other telescopes, the Orion region of the sky is rich with beautiful red coloration. This is due to the presence of excited (ionized) hydrogen gas, which emits a prominent red spectral line. Thus:

I wonder . . .

As we know, Muslims have made the rape and other sexual use of children and raping and beating women by grown men part of their religion. As we also know, a great many wealthy and powerful people in the film industry -- not to mention in American politics -- have indulged themselves in pederasty and the rape of women also part of their culture, as well. How convenient it would be for such Americans if Sharia became the law of the land, if the Islamicization of America became complete.Read more...Collapse )
Frequently people post a response to posts of all kinds, "fake news," without any evidence to back up that claim nor citation of sources that would enable the rest of us to check on the validity of that claim.

People who identify with the Left might do that as a way to try and confuse members of the Facebook membership as to what political reality actually is. If everything is fake news, then nothing is real, and we're all living in vacuum; if we can't tell what is fake news and what isn't, then we can't depend on the veracity of anything, and life becomes more and more chaotic. Just the sort of the thing to make it easier to manipulate and control people.

if you believe something really is fake news, people, then add URLs of articles that back that up as well as the URLs of anything else that would show it's fake. Otherwise you are just claiming it's fake news for the sake of making that claim and annoying the holy living whatever out of people -- i.e., you're a troll, and probably one who is underage and/or has a low IQ -- or you are a dupe or willing tool of the Left.

As for those who don't make such unverifiable claims, please ignore them. All that taking them seriously will just add to the confusion that comes from living on an already deteriorating planet and in an increasingly chaotic civilization.
Apparently, as far as is known, the basalt flood eruptions that took place 250 million years ago in what is now Siberia, causing global changes in climate because of which almost all life on Earth died, were unique in Earth's history. Nothing like them have occurred since, and nothing like them -- as far as we know -- occurred before them. So what gave rise to them?Read more...Collapse )

Feline adventures in flystrips

My poor cat learned the hard way today about Why We Do Not Play With Pest-Strips:

She jumped up onto the sink area in my apartment and began batting at the pest/fly-strip I had hanging from the underside of a cabinet by the sink, thinking it was a toy. I heard her rattling around up there and stood up, yelling, "Hey, get off there!" So she jumped down from the sink onto the floor -- the entire pest-strip coming with her, stuck to her fur.

I had to hold the poor cat down and pull the fly-strip off her fur. It was in two parts, the rip occurring as she fell, and she hated every moment of it. But she's okay now. One of the funniest things I've ever seen -- but she was so upset by it that I didn't laugh, as I didn't want to hurt her feelings. I told her she was a good girl and it was all right, and she went off to sulk and wash her fur.


Nursery & Garden Plants

Plants that began life in a nursery or have been grown in gardens are very aware of the humans around them. After all, it is the humans that tend them, feed them, water them, protect them by putting them in greenhouse, try to keep pests away from them, and otherwise make the plants' lives and reproduction possible. And think of bananas! -- there hasn't been a single banana grown in 10,000 years without the help of humans.

So plants are aware of us. And, like all other living creatures, their bodies have electrons moving through them continuously in their sap and vascular tissue, there is an electromagnetic field around every plant. And that field interacts with all living creatures around them -- including humans, so that at every moment there is a continuous exchange of information between it and all those creatures. And the other creatures -- including us -- bathed in that flow of electromagnetic information from plants, are aware of the plants, too.

As Jane Goodall says in Seeds of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants, plants send us information about themselves and our relationship with them, and if we sit quietly and make ourselves open to them, we will receive impressions from them that become ideas, thoughts, emotions, and full-blown communication. In return, we do broadcast our feelings, reactions, ideas, and thoughts in all directions, and plants pick them up from us. What plants have to tell us about themselves and the world in general is priceless -- and so is the peace that comes upon us when we make ourselves conscious of and responsive to them. This is as true of wild plants as of "tame ones," too. Take a while to begin a conversation of this sort with trees and other plants, and you will be greatly rewarded.


Hymn of the Garden Plants

For the Gardener brings the rain,
And the Gardener brings the Sun,
And the Gardener brings the food.
All praise the Gardener!

For the Gardener brings the Darkness,
And the Gardener brings the Light,
And the Gardener brings Knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom.
All praise the Gardener!

For the Gardener brings the End,
And the Gardener brings the Beginning,
And the Gardener brings life.
All praise the Gardner!

For the Gardener brings the drought,
And the Gardener brings the floor,
And the Gardener brings the Seed.
All praise the Gardener!

For the Gardener brings seedtime,
And the Gardener brings harvest,
And the Gardener makes the world reborn.
All praise the Gardener!

For the Gardener brings Love,
And the Gardener brings Hatred,
And the Gardener brings Reconciliation.
All praise the Gardener!

For we live by the Gardener's Will,
And the Gardener is good.
For the Gardener loves us all.
All praise the Gardener!

(One dark morning several years ago I awoke to this hymn, coming from the plants on my balcony. The sheer joy of that hymn raised by spirits immeasurably high, and made that dark morning bright and alive in spite of the heavy clouds and rain outside. It came to me on a mental plane, a spiritual one, and I have transmitted it here as best I could. They have all since passed on, but the plants on my balcony and in my apartment now occasionally emit the same hymn. – Oh, and by the way, by “Gardener” they mean G-d. I'm just one of countless lower-case-g gardeners that do G-d's work for these wonderful plants. – Yael R. Dragwyla, October 24, 2017)


Idiot articles

Why can't the authors of these articles do some basic research and get it right?

"Using radiocarbon analysis, . . . the caves were inhabited 11 million years ago." Boredom Therapy: "They Found These Strange Bodies Inside A Cave. What Was Written On The Walls? So Creepy…"

Somebody screwed up big-time:

" . . . [B]ecause the decay rate is logarithmic, radiocarbon dating has significant upper and lower limits. It is not very accurate for fairly recent deposits. In recent deposits so little decay has occurred that the error factor (the standard deviation) may be larger than the date obtained. The practical upper limit is about 50,000 years." "What are radio carbon dating limitations?"

Whoever writes those articles for Boredom Therapy really ought to check the scientific literature to make sure their own articles are accurate.

O Thelema!

On Thelema:

Determined self-defense is Thelema.

The Bill of Rights, along with Amendments 13 and 14, along with the US Constitution itself, is Thelema.

Loving your country is Thelema. So is NOT loving your government -- government is supposed to the the servant, NOT the master. (“the slaves shall serve.” —AL. II. 58. For more, see, e.g., Liber OZ)

The United States Marines are Thelema.

Donald Trump is Thelema. As is Aleister Crowley. But not a whole hell of a lot of jerks who call themselves "Thelemites" but haven't the faintest idea of what Thelema really is. Such as John Whiteside Parsons.

Thelema is liberty, not license. Thelema is love of liberty, not addiction to license. And, by the way, Democrats, "liberals," and other assorted crud are NOT Thelema.

Thelema is space, the exploration of space, the settlement of Earth's life on other worlds. Thelema is love of life, including all our cousins, close and remote, who share the Earth with us.

Thelema is life. Therefore, choose life!

Please, G-d, give me peace

I cannot think of anything I've done in my 72-plus years on Earth that has truly paid for my keep and made me worth it to have around. Maybe you have, but something prevents me from being aware of any worth, any value to others and to G-d within myself. I may have done some things that helped others in some way, but never enough. I never had a productive nor a lucrative career. I am deep in egregious amounts of monetary debt. I have never served in the American military, fighting to preserve the many freedoms I have enjoyed in life. What is the right thing to do when you realize that by leaving life you can at least keep your debts -- financial, spiritual -- from ever increasing? That you can never be on the right side of life's ledger no matter what you do? That's all life can be to someone like me: either paying my debts and my keep or not. Until I was 29 or so, the only person who cared about me was my fiance, Evans Haley -- and all he cared about my intelligence and worth was to tell me "You're like a goose: you wake up in a new world every day." I do have a few truly good friends now, but I've never been part of a family, have never had children, never been married, never had a real lover (Evans died before we could consummate our relationship). Life is just torture for me -- I do want to outlive my cat, who clearly loves and needs me, but once she is gone, there will be no reason to go on. And I can't stop hurting.

People have told me this is a "test." Of what? My capacity for masochism? My stupidity? It's no test. It's 72 years plus time in the womb of being useless, worthless, and always in fear, in pain. I am so sick of it -- but I'm even sicker of being told, brightly, "G-d LOVES you! He just wants to test you to see if you're worthy!" (That sort of thing always comes out of the blue, exactly when I don't need it.)

Please, G-d, either provide a way for me to truly pay my debts rather than just suffer; put me together with someone who will fall deeply in love with me, who I will love just as deeply; to use the gifts of intellect and other things as You intended, so that I don't go to waste; or let me cease to exist once my cat is gone. I don't know why you have been punishing me like this all my life, but I think it's time for it to end. I've never been confronted with any charges that would have justified it; never been allowed to confront my accusers; never had competent and ethical legal representation in Your court to defend me against whatever charges there are against me. This is truly cruel and unusual punishment, and should not be. Whatever I am guilty of, let it go, let me be not, keep me from suffering any longer, for my suffering serves no good purpose, helps no one, keeps me from my paying my debts and fulfilling my obligations, and does no good whatsoever. Otherwise how am I to believe that You are good, righteous, and just? Please either let me have a life worth living in whatever remains of my time on Earth, or let me have the peace of oblivion. Please.
