    πŸ™‚ just woke from a cycling dream of percents of alpha for a Flash movieclip.

    uuuhmm, you lost me this time heath

  3. derek says:

    Okay, this is why I wish I was smart like you and Ed. Your comments go right over my head.

    • ed says:

      Just foolin’ on Derek. When you get to my age you’ll be as dumb as me! Everything cancels out πŸ˜‰

      I really like the way you think. Your poem is an art tickle, in a box.

    • heath says:

      my mind works on my work when I sleep, over and over and over. it feels like the poem you wrote. you’re measuring dimensions, I’m measuring opaqueness & positioning. same introspective iterative process, it seemed to me. it’s a seemingly boxed-in modality. it’s not a lyrical experience. but its results can be lyrical.

      you’re as smart as Ed and me, and maybe smarter. we have different styles of expression based on exposure to varied cultural traditions. Ed’s is verbal & literary, mine is mute & visual. yours is… ?

      • ed says:

        ‘it’s a seemingly boxed-in modality.’

        I’ve just been following up ‘out of the box’ scientist+ Nassim Haramein. Perhaps a wider leap on my part from your reference, Heath, but he wrestled with the contradiction of infinite being possible within our finite borders. He solved it for himself by embracing Nature’s fractals which we know are endlessly and rampantly pervasive.

        And, hey Derek, I saw you ’embracing’ plant fractals in that first vid of yours. Now, thanks to Heath, I’m in a vortex !! :))

        Heath’s the smart one, of course, Derek πŸ˜‰

      • derek says:

        nice heath, i get it. that is an amazing comparison. I had to look up, introspective iterative, good thing my computer has a dictionary, it fits perfectly. there must be something about the creative mind that works this way, this kind of overthinking and figiting.

        “it’s not a lyrical experience. but its results can be lyrical.” I can see how this fits my poem. thinking this way is not lyrical at the time but the expression of it can be, it can even be poetry. that is fascinating. It makes me think that even in my dysfuntional thinking there is valid artistic oportunity. I had not thought of any of this when I wrote this piece. I did like I always do, I just started typing.

  4. derek says:

    Heath’s totally the smart one Ed.

    Does one have the ability to go up and down in a vortex?

    • ed says:

      ‘Does one have the ability to go up and down in a vortex?’
      Even as the water goes down the plughole, the air comes up, yay. The great thing is, that in the middle is a Place of Piece! (fractal vortex?)

  5. derek says:

    Wow Ed, I just watched a video trailer of Nassim Haramein, this is what I mean by everything is everything. Everything is an example of everything else on another scale. The hurricane looks like a spiral galaxy and so on. I wonder if there are different laws of physics for a cluster galaxy than for a spiral galaxy?

    Yo, I have the challenge of having an intutional understanding but not the schooling to express and share this understanding in traditional ways. When I see videos such as this it gives me words for my understandings. I think when I say everything is everything it’s has been my way of trying to talk about fractals.

    I can’t help but believe that we are on the verge some profound understandings in the coming years. Hopefully my ADHA wont distract me too much.

  6. ed says:

    Hey, Derek, chaos is part of the deal. I think you are closer than most πŸ˜‰
    Did you get Nassim’s ‘white whole/black whole in EVERYTHING yet?’
    This is a great story if you’ve got eight and a half hours to spare:-

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6151699791256390335&hl=en# Part 1

    You can work on that ADHA? as you would any of your ‘creations,’ you know. Sorry, overload here….I’m sold, too, on Vern Woolf’s Holodynamics.
    As hugely magnificent as our Universe is, we are not its victims but its free representatives. We are going on through…..
    Thanks, Derek, what a great schooling this is, eh?

    • derek says:

      Oh my god, Ed. I am only two hours into Nassim Haramein’s lecture.

      everything is everything

      thank you, this is the best school. I have somehow known this all my life.

      • derek says:

        So Ed, I watched the whole eight and a half hours. If he’s right then omg, if he’s a con artist, he’s the best I’ve ever seen. I guess only time will tell. Until then it’s always good to be in my rowboat drifting in circles.

      • ed says:

        I certainly don’t think Nassim is a con, Derek. He puts his ‘money where his mouth is’ with ‘The Resonance Project.’

        I don’t know what to make of his ‘Sun Gods’ though he makes a pretty convincing case. Plenty of others think we might be due for another face to face visit πŸ˜‰

        You put it humblyly as your ‘rowboat drifting in circles.’ He calls it a ‘black whole/white whole feedback loop’ and that unlimited energy is available in the ‘vacuum’ of our ‘thought'(my take, that) It seems feasible that technology may well be able to devise a tap into that and may well be already doing that CIA-wise ?? What appealed to me in his ‘conclusions’ was that we ourselves, our bodies, are the ultimate ‘technology’ if we can get beyond our limited thinking ‘event horizon.’
        Do you find Derek, that when you have an art form under way that even without ‘assistance’ you can work timelessly and somewhat effortlessly…out of the body, maybe….free energy. I think this potential we each have can start in the micro and fractalise out every this and that way into the many dimensions of the macro. Your row-boat circles could be the basis of a mighty hurricane, yay.

        Thanks for giving it a whirl…I’ve been glossed over elsewhere.

        Much respect,
        ed

    Hey Ed, have you ever heard of the TV series “Stargate SG1”? If not, you should. It is Nassim’s theory in a TV show, but unfortunately with a lot of guns. As I watched Nassim all I could think about was Stargate. In the series the event horizon of the wormhole is a pool of water. I have always believed that we are children of mother earth and father sun. When I was nine or ten years old I saw the documentary, “Chariots of the Gods”. It explores the idea that the ancients/aliens/our true ancestors visted us and still do. They are father sun or sun gods. I talked about this on IB but was laughed at. I probably talked here about it. I have been talking about it for years. It is also fundemental for an artist to understand fractals or scale.

    When I was ten or eleven and trying to explain to my family that we are all connected by the dust of the earth and that this dust is electrically charged and that we breath it in which changes it, then we breath it out with our information, they started calling me special. But not in a good way. This set me on a coarse of thinking I was crazy and that my ideas were crazy. But I have held on to my crazy ideas all these years. Nassim’s theory is the perfect example of the thoughts that have been in my head for all these years, ever since I watched ‘The Chariots of the Gods”. Nassim is the same age as me and when he was having trouble in school because of the information in his head I was doing the same, at the same time only I did not try to figure it out, I tried to forget about it. I didn’t want to be the crazy one in the family. I was already the loser in my family. Anyway this is where my hesitation comes from. I have been conditioned to believe that what I believe has got to be wrong. I have also carried this with me all these years.

    Nassim’s theory is in exact alignment with my beliefs with the added bonus of the physics. It’s been my belief that if something was found that would revalutionize our understanding that it should be simple enough that everyone can see it. I believe that Nassim has found such an understanding. If he is right then it validates my understanding of our universe, if he is wrong it validates my families. As I watched Nassim, I kept thinking, under different circumstances that could be me giving that lecture.

    I do know of time being relative, even that it can not exist at times. For me that’s more often than not. I personally have a hard time fitting into the world where time is soooo important. Schedules and deadlines are just not a part of my make up.

    Thank you Ed for sharing this with me. I believe his work to be true and I am always working to let go of my doubts about myself. Seeing him speak gives me hope that I’m not crazy or stupid and that there is a chance that I/we live in a moment of history when our species matures to the next level.

    peace comes from peace

    much love and appreciation to you Ed

      Yo, Derek, you played a vital role there at IntentBlog! Little did most folks realise what you were ushering in. That is the way I see it. It took me a while to realise your substance when you covered with your fooling on and self-humbling.
      ‘Peace comes from Peace’ showed your depth and the other guy, Vernon Woolf, who I mentioned certainly backs you up on that with his perspective.

      We perhaps have a fair bit in common, apart from vintage, Derek. My dad could never understand my utterances! He said once that I couldn’t possibly be his son! My mother took it in good part, lol. I certainly felt odd man out in all my relationships.
      I suppose I might have become an artist like you.
      I was assessed and listed for Art in my 4th year, ten subjects allowed in total, where eight were compulsary, Christian Religious Knowledge, for one! UK Grammar School GCE Exams. Biology my favourite subject was NOT on the list! I complained. ‘Well,’ said the powers that was, ‘you can’t do both!’ I hadn’t much clue about education, with my working class background, so I followed fairly meekly and chose Biology. I let my art slip, but no matter, now.

      Yes, Stargate SG1 really appealed to me, too.

      Let’s go!

      • derek says:

        Hey Ed, do you still study Christians. I have to say I do. I find them fascinating. School for me was completely unstimulating, I only finished the nineth grade, though I was barely there mentally from about the 1st grade. I don’t remember school very much. I doodled a lot during class.

        Ed, your art slipped into your writting. The way you put words together is magic and I get the sense that you know a great deal more about humanities path than you let on but you are the humble sort.

        I have always sensed that I’m about to understand something big. That I’m a part of something more. That is what lead me to Intenblog. What an amazing experience that was. It is said that we draw our teachers to us, I believe that is why I was drawn to IB. I had a lot of learning to do for some reason and there were many teachers there for me, even the multiples and the intellectual bullies.
        I feel like someone is going to say something and all the pieces will fall into place. I get that feeling the more I think about Nassim’s theory. Usually after hearing someone’s theories I start finding holes in it in the days following, after the new has worn off. It has been the opposite with Nassim’s theory. What he talks about works with my wishful thinking. I hope father comes home soon. I still have dreams of traveling off world.

      • ed says:

        I can’t say I’ve studied anything much in the accepted sense, Derek. It’s more that I was steeped in it, with Christianity, coming from a fundamentalist Plymouth Brethren background. If World War 2 did anything, it thrust my parents out into the mainstream and rid us of that awful restricting divinisation of human insecurity. (yay, words do sometimes carry me awa(r)y!)
        It’s that man Jesus who appeals to me, above all other greats. He went into death grisly and came back yogi bear! πŸ™‚

        ‘No proof’ I hear the cry….no matter say I! Even if he is wholly imagined, I do believe Man ‘creates’ his own future by what he imagines. As NTestament ‘quotes’ some place, ‘a great Man-child is labouring to be born.’ The lines between imagining and ‘reality’ are very much blurred for me. Science now steps in to verify our most fanciful dreams. Hey, doesn’t Jesus’ resurrection compare well with Nassim’s ‘feedback loop’ in the very atoms of our structure, being fractally and holographically same as the whole. ‘I call it not robbery to be equal with Go-‘

        I’m off, before Heath catches me ;))

    Hi there Derek and Ed,
    It’s nice to ‘catch’ you both here, knee deep in discussion and Heather not far away. I love it! :–)

    Wish you could have been along with me on my walk tonight, we would have been lulled into silence though as the moon came up – and casts a magical spell of making words disappear. Just to bask in it’s bright glow is whimsy. Such is the power of nature’s beauty, so breathtaking, it does take my breath away …

    lots of love,
    ~ Kate
    (you haven’t forgotten me have you? ;–)

    • derek says:

      Never forgotten dear Kate.
      We all seem to have wandered off to our own blogs sites.
      I think I was the last to create my own.

      the moon did peek through a maple’s golden leaves last night
      a bit hazed out by the thin wispy clouds
      it’s magic diffused and mischievous
      i felt a bit of halloween in the air

      and nature takes your breath deep into it’s soul
      then blows it back with all it’s beauty
      bundled up inside every single spark

      yo

        Oh my, I like those sparks, Derek!

    derek, awesome on your blog,
    I will take more time to read through it.
    You are so creative!

      Hi Kate, I just realized that the word “accost” that I had (mis)used has negative and sexual connotations…

      My first language isn’t English and I had no idea about the cultural associations it had.

      I assumed that “accost” is a positive, or possibly slightly negative, if not a neutral word as in:

      “Greeting (also called accosting) is an act of communication in which human beings (as well as other members of the animal kingdom) intentionally make their presence known to each other, to show attention to, and to suggest a type of relationship […]”

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accost

      “(verb) speak to someone
      synonyms : address , come up to

      As a part of sales team, we got a lot of the training on ‘how to accost someone’. ”

      http://www.mnemonicdictionary.com/word/accost

      I was aware of the first(as in a stranger greeting/addressing a person who is alone), not the second(as in sexual favors/threatening/aggression/trapping):

      Verb 1.accost – speak to someone

      *come up to, address

      *greet, recognise, recognize – express greetings upon

      *meeting someone

      *approach – make advances to someone, usually with a proposal or suggestion; “I was approached by the President to serve as his adviser in foreign matters”

      *come, come up – move toward, travel toward something or somebody or approach something or somebody; “He came singing down the road”; “Come with me to the Casbah”; “come down here!”; “come out of the closet!”; “come into the room”

      *******************
      2. accostaccost – approach with an offer of sexual favors; “he was solicited by a prostitute”; “The young man was caught soliciting in the park”
      solicit, hook

      *snare, hook – entice and trap; “The car salesman had snared three potential customers”

      *offer – make available or accessible, provide or furnish; “The conference center offers a health spa”; “The hotel offers private meeting rooms”

      ********************
      accost:
      verb confront, challenge, address, stop, approach, oppose, halt, greet, hail, solicit (as a prostitute)

      http://www.thefreedictionary.com/accost

      I hope I didn’t offend you Kate; nothing of the sort was intended.

  10. darknight says:

    Nice to ‘catch’ you too Kate. I would rather prefer to accost you on one of your nature walks. We no longer have those intentblog get-together virtual parties 😦 And reporter ‘Anon’ covering those mystique gatherings πŸ™‚

    ah the darknight is never far away!
