Discovering Non-Physical and Non-Biological Forms of Consciousness

Dr. R.N.BOYD, PhD

Introduction
by Adrian Klein

Before proceeding with our scientific adventure, let's relax for a few minutes in a short empathic contemplation of Life and Life Forces at work in nature's various kingdoms.

Nothing can be more convincing then a first-hand experience in penetrating such elusive realms.

This kind of directly experiencing hidden realms of Information structures expressing themselves in myriad manifestation forms in the visible and invisible spectrum of Nature requires special awareness bands operating at an inborn or auto-training basis.

It is a highly fortunate circumstance, that Dr. R.N.Boyd has developed to unbelievable extents his inborn ability of perceiving and interacting with generally inaccessible bands of organized life-forms and non-corporeal Information structures evolving along parallel world-lines to the one of our species.

We are sure that keeping in mind a few exemplification data in this regard will enhance the readers' further receptivity for our explanatory theoretic model.
Let's give the word to Dr. R.N.Boyd, PhD, for a brief recollecting of his start on the amazing way of interconnectedness with All Life.

Dr Robert Neil Boyd writes....

More than 25 years ago, a Cherokee (Native American) Holy Woman of my acquaintance decided to start blessing me with some of her vast knowledge and abilities, deeming me a suitable candidate for eventually realizing some of the amazing understandings which have followed on her guidances.
Early on, we used to play a game together, a variation of "hide-and seek". The first time we did this, she got in her pick-up truck and told me to count to 100 and then come and find her. Then she drove away. That first time, I didn't even bother to count to 100, as I knew that the task of finding her was impossible, especially after a one hundred second head start, since there were so many intersecting roads she could have turned on, and gone down, in the direction she'd gone, with further bewildering array of intersections available after any first turn.

After about 15 minutes, she returned to her home, to find me waiting, right where she'd left me. She said with a smile, "Couldn't do it, huh?". I said, "No. How could I? It's impossible!". She said, "OK. We're going to try again. Only this time, pay attention to the birds." With a teasing smile on her face, she said, "Don't forget to count to 100!" And she drove away again.

For some reason, I didn't think it was so impossible anymore, and dutifully counted to 100. Then I got in my car and drove in the same direction I had seen her go. When I got to the first intersection, where she could have turned left, or right, or gone straight ahead, I was stopped at the red traffic light, trying to guess which way she might have gone. It was intellectually hopeless. Then I remembered her saying to "pay attention to the birds". So I started looking around for some birds.

Eventually, I spotted one on a telephone line, across the road from me. It just sat there on the wire, seemingly oblivious to my presence. Not knowing what else to do, and helpless otherwise, I had an instinct to send a mental picture of her, to the bird, along with the request that, if it had noticed her, would it be so kind as to point its beak in the direction she had gone. I decided to try the experiment.

To my surprise, the bird turned on the wire, to face towards my left, where before, it had been pointing exactly straight ahead. Thinking that maybe this was merely a coincidence, I searched for another bird, and repeated the procedure. I got exactly the same result. The birds seemed to be responding to my picture-sending methods and to my request. Thinking that, at worst, I might be in for a long and random drive, I decided to turn left, in the direction that had been indicated by 4 separate birds, by the time the light had turned green.

As part of the experiment, I decided to repeat this procedure at each and every intersection I came across. After about an hour of this sort of thing, I eventually found her, parked in a corn field, many miles away from where we had started, by a route that had involved many turns. I was amazed beyond words. "It worked!" I exclaimed to myself, with a happy smile.

I eventually realized that the birds always directly responded to my projected mental pictures and to my projected emotions. We did this game for several weeks. I got better at it with each repetition.
Then one day she changed the rules. She said, "We're going to play the "find me" game again. Only this time, you won't be able to use the birds. You're going to have to find some other way to find me this time. And don't forget to count to100.", she said with a smile. And off she went.

She went off in the same direction she usually did. So as a matter of habit, when I got to that first intersection, I immediately started looking around for birds to point the way for me. I rapidly found some birds. I performed my usual sending of pictures and the polite requests. And the birds ignored me. All of them. None of them would change their facing, at my request. I was crestfallen. It wasn't working. Then I remembered that she'd said I wouldn't be able to use the birds today. So I started wondering about what other resources I might be able to use, since I couldn't use the birds for guidance this day.

Across the intersection was a gasoline filling station, which displayed a large boulder in front of it, as part of the landscaping. For some reason, it crossed my mind for the first time, that maybe rocks might have some sort of awareness. Since the birds weren't working for me, I decided to go across to the gas station, and park, so I could get close to that big rock and try some experiments along the lines of what I'd been doing with the birds for weeks-on-end.

I parked at the neighboring pizza shop, so as not to cause any inconveniences at the gas station. Then I walked over to where the boulder was in the gas station lot. Instinct had me go to the boulder and arrange to place both feet and both hands on it, so that I was completely off the ground. Having accomplished that, I then wondered if maybe the boulder might be able respond to me in some way, like the birds were accustomed to respond. So I sent out a feeler message, an emotion of directed inquiry, similar to what I'd done with the birds.

To my utter shock, I got an emotional response, from the rock! By this time, I was used to having emotional interactions with birds. But never in my wildest dreams had I ever imagined I could get the same kinds of responses from a rock! So I started projecting mental images, and to my complete surprise, got mental pictures back from the rock, in response.

Well, upon realizing that the rock I was on, actually had Consciousness, my curiosity was aroused. I started thinking about what I might be able to explore this way. Then I made the mistake of asking the boulder to tell me its Life Story, its history. It started sending me pictures of how it had once been part of a magnificent, tall, ice and snow-covered mountain. How then after thousands of years of snow and ice and water and wind, cracks started splitting the mountain face. Until one day it parted from the mountain, to fall to the ledge below.

Then from there, this and that and the other happened and happened and happened and picture after picture after picture, until I was overwhelmed. Not wishing to be impolite, I stayed with the barrage of information for quite some time, until I was eventually forced to interrupt its cascade of information, just to get a break. It stopped. Thank goodness.


"Whew! Well, that worked." I said to myself. Then my curiosity got started again, and I started wondering if it recorded any living things in its memory. I made another mistake of asking for its history of observations of Biological Life. Picture after picture after picture of living things, including dinosaurs and mastodons, to deer to lizards to birds and on and on. After my curiosity was more than satisfied, I asked it to stop, since I was still involved in the "hide and seek" game, and still wanted to find my Spirit-Teacher/Friend. It obligingly stopped for me.

Then I asked if it had ever seen any people. I got its entire history of its observations of various human beings, including the first Native Americans it had ever seen. I said, "Stop. What about today?" And I got pictures of cars and people and cars and people, in an endless stream, passing before the rock's inner vision.
On realizing it could see this way, I said, "Stop. What about this one?". And I sent a picture of my friend to the rock. It sent me back an exact copy of her face and her pick-up, and I saw that she had turned left at the last intersection. I said "Thanks!", to the rock, with a great big delighted smile, and went back to my car. I eventually found her by using the rocks, similar to the way I had previously found her, by using birds (though not as convenient).

I got good at this, as we repeated the practice. Then one day, she said, "Today, you're going to have to find another way. None of those material things are going to work for you." And off she went. I got to that first intersection and tried the usual birds and my boulder-friend. Nothing. Not even from my rock friend. How could this be? But I'd realized at that first intersection that I'd gotten an urging, from the very air, that she had gone straight ahead this day.

A very mysterious feeling it was.

I decided to go that way, since nothing else was working, and look for more such urges from out of the air. As I proceeded along that road, unsure of myself, I eventually came across a very strong sense of energy in the air. As I was driving, I could sense an energy in the air, well before I got to it. When I got there, a very clear mental picture came to me, of her being at a specific restaurant, in a specific shopping center. I could see the name of the place, the advertising sign, displayed clearly in my mind's eye. I selected to go straight there, rather than look for any more signs from her. We had lunch together that day, in that very restaurant. She had placed the information about it, into the air along the road, the vision of which had appeared in my mind's eye, as I was seeking after her. So I found her.

Later on, she and I made adventures of finding haunted houses and unhaunting them. This was all in preparation to have many future encounters with many varieties of Non-Physical beings, such as Dralas and Devas, and Angels.
For example, eventually, by exploring the non-physical forms of Consciousness, for many years, I discovered exactly how crop circles are made, by Devas. This has been substantiated by a German researcher who has published a peer reviewed article in a respected Journal, regarding instrumented observations made during the actual formations of crop circles.

I have discovered over the years, that without the proper prep work, as given above, personal interactions with Non-Physical Beings are difficult-to-impossible, because the proper openness and sensitivity will be lacking. Due to more than a decade of such interactions, the principles Klein and I have been expressing have been developed on an empirical and scientific basis, supported by many years of innovative physics research. This basis will become even more empirical as our new SQ information-based instrumentation packages come available.

102  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Orang-utangs now considered the most intelligent non human primate on: October 17, 2008, 11:47:05

Chimps knocked off top of the IQ tree
Jonathan Leake and Roger Dobson

ORANG-UTANS have been named as the world’s most intelligent animal in a study that places them above chimpanzees and gorillas, the species traditionally considered closest to humans.

The study found that out of 25 species of primate, orang-utans had developed the greatest power to learn and to solve problems.


The controversial findings challenge the widespread belief that chimpanzees are the closest to humans in brainpower. They also suggest that the ancestry of orang-utans and humans may be more closely entwined than had been thought.

“It appears the orang-utan may possess a privileged status among human kindred,” said James Lee, the Harvard University psychologist behind the research. “It is even possible that an orang-utan-like forager occupied a pivotal link in the chain of descent leading to man.”

Both orang-utans and chimpanzees share about 96% of their DNA with humans, although molecular studies suggest that chimpanzees are more closely related.

The study comes at a time when orang-utans are endangered as never before. Once widespread throughout the forests of Asia, they are now confined to just two islands, Sumatra and Borneo, and are highly endangered as a result of habitat loss and poaching.

Lee’s work involved collating a series of separate studies into the intelligence of different primate species. However, his research first had to overcome a much greater hurdle: would it be possible to compare different species of primates at all?
Spider monkeys, for example, have developed brains to cope with a fast-moving life in the tree tops, while slow lorises are small and leisurely nocturnal hunters.

The conventional belief is that comparing the intelligence of different species is meaningless because separate evolution over millions of years will have given them very different brains.

Lee, a junior psychology researcher at Harvard, found that in primates, at least, different rules seem to apply — the development of one set of mental skills seems to prompt the primate brain to develop other mental abilities as well.

“A primate genus with a high rank in an experiment testing particular mental abilities appears to have high ranks in all of them,” said Lee.

He also found that the single most important factor in deciding a species’ intelligence was simply the size of its brain: “The correlation of brain size with mental ability found in humans appears to extend throughout the primate order.”

This “remarkable finding” suggests, he said, that all primate brains work in much the same way, however they have evolved, allowing comparisons between species.
Lee’s research threw up some other surprises, too. Gorillas, for example, emerged as less intelligent than spider monkeys while baboons, often considered relatively bright, were ranked 14th.

Recent field work by Carel van Schaik, a Dutch primatologist who is now at Duke University, North Carolina, appears to bear out Lee’s findings.
Studying orang-utans in Borneo, he found them capable of tasks well beyond chimpanzees’ abilities — such as using leaves to make rain hats and leakproof roofs over their sleeping nests. He also found that in some food-rich areas the creatures had developed a complex culture in which adults would teach youngsters how to make tools and find food.

He and Lee both suggest that the key factor in such developments is the orang-utans’ life-style, spent mostly in the tops of trees where there is little risk from predators. This has allowed them to establish long and settled lives similar to humans’ and also to develop culture and intelligence.

In his own research papers, Van Schaik has suggested that since the ancestors of modern orang-utans split from the human lineage about 15m years ago, the seeds of human culture must go back at least as far.

Chris Stringer, professor of human origins at the Natural History Museum in London, agrees that the sociable lifestyles of primates are the driving force behind the development of intelligence. “Primates and early humans had not got the claws and teeth of predators so they had to rely on brainpower to communicate and protect themselves,” he said. “They are sociable creatures and living in small groups seems to have driven brain development.”

The idea that sociability and intelligence are linked is borne out by research into the relative brain power of diverse animal groups including cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and birds.

Dr Vincent Janik, of the sea mammal research unit at St Andrews University, said that some dolphin species had developed the ability to communicate far beyond that of great apes. “Dolphins have some abilities that great apes don’t have, such as copying new sounds. No primate apart from humans can do that,” he said.

Neurons

Neurons are the cells which transmit information in the nervous system of a animal so that it can sense stimuli coming from its environment and behaves accordingly. Not all animals have neurons; Trichoplax and sponges lack nerve cells altogether.

Neurons may be packed to form structures such as the brain of vertebrates or the neural ganglions of insects.

The number of neurons and their relative abundance in different parts of the brain is a determinant of neural function and, consequently, of behavior.

Andrew,

I must check on Zana I still think Bassou is beyond odd I have heard of a Humanzee a sort of chimp human hybrid. I believe there are very strange things that scientist just want to leave alone for fear of being made fun of by their peers.

Luckily we do not fall into that group and remain open minded about everything under the sun and beyond

110  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Can you explian Bassou the Ape Man of Morroco? on: October 11, 2008, 18:34:00
     

Hi can you explain Bassou




Bassou lives in the Valley of Dades, near the town of Skoura, in Morocco.  He sleeps in the trees there and subsists on dates, berries, and insects.  He wears no clothes (although he was persuaded to don a burlap sack for the photograph which appears here), uses no tools, and speaks only in grunts.

The local Berbers have been aware of Bassou's presence for at least the past 25 years, but they shun him in superstitious fear and have been unable to give any clue as to his origin.  Western scientists have also been aware of Bassou for a number of years, but, for the most part, they too shun him in superstitious fear.  For Bassou's existence raises some very troubling questions for the true believers in the TV religion of universal human equality. It has been hard enough for them to try to fit Blacks and Whites together into that scheme, without having to worry about Bassou.

What is Bassou?  No one really knows.  He displays both ape-like and manlike characteristics. Those who have studied him, however, have been reluctant to accept the suggestion that he is the product of a mating between a human being –- Negro or Berber -- and an anthropoid ape, all three of which Morocco has an abundance.

Yet, Bassou is clearly something special, and not just a deformed human being.  With arms so long his fingers hang below his knees when he stands upright; with massive, bony ridges above his eyes and a sharply receding forehead; with jaws, teeth, chin, and cheekbones all showing pronounced ape-like characteristics, he is a true ape-man.

 

[Caption: BASSOU, so named by the local Berbers, is an embarrassment to those who insist that every animal which qualifies as "human" is "equal" to every other such animal.]

There have been rumors for centuries -- ever since Africa was opened to European exploration -- of apes raiding African villages and mating with Negro women.  Thus, the King Kong legend.  Scientists have never been able to confirm these rumors, and it has been assumed that, even if such matings did occasionally take place, there would be no offspring.

But there has never been a scientific effort -- largely for religious reasons -- to actually determine whether a union between some human sub-species -- a Negro, say -- and some species of ape, might be fertile.  Numerous other examples of inter-specific matings which yield hybrid offspring are known.  The mule is a cross between a horse and a donkey, and the liger is a cross between a lion and a tiger, for example.

If Bassou is indeed such a hybrid -- and no other plausible explanation for him has yet been brought forward -- then his existence throws a real monkey wrench into the neo-liberal theory of the separateness of man from the rest of Nature.  It forces us to face the continuity of Nature's hierarchy.  And it makes us ask some questions.

What is human?  Where shall we draw the line?  Shall we include Bassou and begin worrying about whether his "human dignity" has been abused?  And if we include Bassou -- and if he is a hybrid -- what of his parents?  Shall we include one but not the other?  If we include both, are we to turn loose all the chimpanzees and gorillas now in our zoos and register them to vote?

Perhaps we need to re-examine the whole myth of racial equality and begin to face reality.

Tayesin,

No Jesus real name was Yahsua or Joshia 

The great theologian C.S Lewis had this to say about Jesus, He was either who he said he was (The Divine Son of GOD) there is no middle ground,  either was the greatest liar that ever lives a mad man or worse. Or he was God incarnated (I believe that).

But if he was who he said he was it would be very prudent to listen what he had to say to humanity

115  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Altered states of consciousness on: October 09, 2008, 19:06:10
Greetings people

Recalling experiences that I have had during extreme altered state of consciousness (not drug induced) I was aware of the intensity of colors, that blazed in living harmonious vibrations. Everything sang and I could hear and fell the caress of the sound of smell the taste of music and colors beyond present perception.

I knew then that I had never come remotely close to knowing what an almost infinite precise instrument my whole body really was. It is not only the brain that perceives reality; each cell is individual aware parts of my body. It was possible to switch to seeing with my ears, tasting with my eyes, listening with my sense of taste, smell and feel. Every atom of you physical body harmonizes together, as an intelligent member of your composite living being.

We have never learned how to utilize the amazing sensory organ that is our entire body. In this state of awareness I could stand still and hear the chirp of a billion birds which I knew was quantum particle flashing in the mind of God. They sing the song of existence and creation and we are deaf to their beautiful song and its real meaning

People became open books to me and I had to close my mind against the cacophony of meaningless babble, until I could filter it out and hear the beauty of glorious minds all around me, both human and animal. I had to retreat in shock and horror from the dark bleakness that sometimes entered my mind. And learn to accept and embrace all that is beautiful and loving about our beautiful blue water planet and the unimaginable wonder of the universe and the super universe from out of which it was born.

My body, mind, soul and spirit as stilled my inner being to really hear, feel, see taste smell and merge with the Super consciousness, began to expand in such unimaginable exhilaration  that my finite mind and self embraced all of existence and I saw and understood everything just like god did. My ego was gone and I could no longer separate my awareness and personality than from god himself. Indeed I had for all purposes amalgamated with and become god.

In what we call our normal waking state we are really sleeping in a dormant hibernating like way. But with practice one can awaken to a much greater degree than is the norm for many of us.

I have plunged the depths of darkness’, despair desolation and for anyone to tell me there is a hell worse than this in a great offence to me

But maybe we must travel through the dark valleys of utter hopeless like I did; to really relish and savor the unbelievable glory that awaits us. Before we exit this life we should have reached a place of contentment, peace and love.

Then the transition is easy smooth exiting a wonder beyond words , like a great holiday that embraces so much beautiful unknowns that the mind is filled with the essences and fragrances of new lands, planets and universes, both physical and spiritual way out beyond any wildest speculations about the afterlife

I hope this little essay is of interest. This in based on actual events and experiences that are as real as your own body and mind

Love

ALAN

Everyone has the ability to experience empathy. Some are just more sensitive to it than others. It's simply the ability to experience another being's feelings as your own. It's not always correct and needs to be kept in check.

You are so right-it needs to be understood controlled and kept in check But it an awesome thing and we can see that in the compassionate work of Mother Teresa. She battled to keep it in check and this lead her to battle with doubt

Your eyes are deceiving you there are no letters on the monitor I do not exist and neither do you, so it is impossibly for you to read what you think you are reading

To progress “we must know what we don’t know” and teach ourselves the hidden wisdom

To describe unconsciousness oblivion, forgetfulness coma, one must be able to describe exactly what consciousness is, awareness, wakefulness is and nobody knows what that really is

It is the flow of memes in the physical brain, but what the heck it is in the soul I just like everyone else have absolutely no idea.

Maybe I am just a figment or thought in the mind of god, or maybe I am just a figment in the group mind of the forum.

Maybe if you stop thinking about me I will cease to exist and vanish. Maybe when I am no thinking about you vanish and don’t exist

I am not aware of you how can I be sure you a real and concrete and visa versa

If I die and you think about me do I still exist?

Nobody wrote this post so there are no words in it and you did not read what is not there.

If you can read it you are hallucinating, blue is really red and white is black. You cannot perceive me or any of my actions as I have never existed. Prove that I exist then you will know what consciousness is.

When you try to observe me I’m not there, when you turn your head I impact on reality. What is real? The body is nothing but seething emptiness and you try to attribute to this mist consciousness. How much less can this empty mist achieve unconsciousness. There is no such state in non reality

When you look for me I vanish , when you stop looking for me I stand in front of you

Everything is a great mystery impossible to understand but simple and easy

I am only a phantom of your mind

Or maybe I am a sleeping god and as I begin to wake up the universe which is just my dream will begin to dissipate and the stars begin to go out one by one until there is nothing but abysmal nothingness as I retract into myself in to the nothingness of the original singularity.

I am everything, infinitely huge embracing all but I am also just a dimensionless singularity point particle infinitly small and of infinite intelligent energy .

Who the heck am I? say to myself as soon as I find the words

Oh!! Now I remember!!

Oh!! Yes!! I AM WHO I SAY I AM

"I am a devotee to no one but myself"

"I think therefore, I am"

what is bipolar?


It is a mood disorder also Known as manic depression. It can manifest itself as mildly abnormal swings in mood, from depressed to happy in cycles and this person can usually live a normal but sometimes also require medication to control it

And then there is the extreme type of manic depression (which I have suffered from since I was young)

This state varies from absolute black hopelessness and dispair alternating with periods of extreme euphoria, joy. exhilaration, which if not controlled can spiral upward into total psychosis

Untreated like I was as a youth lead to unimaginable speakable suffering. But I have been well for the past ten years but have to take medication for th rest of my life.

121  World Cultures, Traditions and Religions / Welcome to World Cultures, Traditions and Religions! / Daddy or Mommy Who made God? on: October 07, 2008, 16:10:23
How did God get here?


Richard Dawkins, among other atheists, thinks he has the ultimate proof that God doesn't exist. If God created a complex universe, wouldn't it take an even more complex entity to have created God? However, such logic assumes that time has always existed, rather than being merely a construct of this universe.

Maybe he asked his parents this question:

Mommy or Daddy who made god???
And getting no answer became very angry!!

I have researched the age old question that has plagued humanity and is the hardest question to answer when our children ask who made God?



My position in this post is that God exists.

Who created God? It is an age-old question that has plagued all those who like to think about the big questions.

Various religions tend to solve the problem in different ways. The LDS church (Mormonism) says that the God (Elohim) to whom we are accountable had a father god, then grew up on a planet as a man, and progressed to become a god himself.

Many other religions have claimed that gods beget other gods. Of course the problem with this idea is how did the first god get here? This problem of infinite regression invalidates such religions. Christianity, Judaism and Islam claim that God has always existed.

Is this idea even possible? Does science address such issues?

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1)

This verse tells us that God was acting before time when He created the universe.

The New Testament tells us that God was acting before time began, and so, He created time, along with the other dimensions of our universe:

No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory "before time began". (1 Corinthians 2:7)

This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the "beginning of time" (2 Timothy 1:9)

 "before the beginning of time" (Titus 1:2)
To the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jude 1:25)
God exists in timeless eternity

How does God acting before time began get around the problem of God's creation? There are two possible interpretations of these verses. One is that God exists outside of time. Since we live in a universe of cause and effect, we naturally assume that this is the only way in which any kind of existence can function.

However, the premise is false. Without the dimension of time, there is no cause and effect, and all things that could exist in such a realm would have no need of being caused, but would have always existed. Therefore, God has no need of being created, but, in fact, created the time dimension of our universe specifically for a reason - so that cause and effect would exist for us. However, since God created time, cause and effect would never apply to His existence.

God exists in multiple dimension of time

The second interpretation is that God exists in more than one dimension of time. Things that exist in one dimension of time are restricted to time's arrow and are confined to cause and effect. However, two dimensions of time form a plane of time, which has no beginning and no end and is not restricted to any single direction. A being that exists in at least two dimension of time can travel anywhere in time and yet never had a beginning, since a plane of time has no starting point. Either interpretation leads one to the conclusion that God has no need of having been created.

"I have experienced just this in an OOBE when I entered a dimension where everyone moved backward in relation to me" To me time was reversing to them it was advancing

Si Dios creó Todo, ¿Quién creó a Dios?

122  2012 and The Transition of the Ages / Welcome to 2012 and The Transition of the Ages / The Last Day on: October 07, 2008, 14:23:31
                           THE LAST DAY

 “The Human”; the day started just like a thousand days before. The morning was beautiful, flowers bright, blazing with every color of the spectrum and beyond. Sweet fragrance, like incense filled the whole atmosphere and the warm sun rippled across the lazy world.

 “The Human”; It was peaceful and one was content to sit quietly and embrace the glory of this wonder of creation this beautiful water world like a priceless jewel a gem floating in the vastness of the void. Bathed in the warmth of the gold red dwarf sun, who was only in its middle age and could supply the world with ceaseless energy for another four billion years

 Sol the Sun; She sang and sent the sweetest music across the universe, to fellow stars even more beautiful than her. A note of distress was in her music as it vibrated far into the cosmos, deep within the bowls of her blessed water world planet, the most beautiful daughter in all the great cosmos and said to them something unusual was beginning to stir within her.

My lovely daughter still in the prime of her beauty is in deep pain and I sing this song requesting help from the greater wisdom of the universe.

What can be wrong with the blazing child of my youth?

“The Earth”, My children who walk crawl, swim and fly across the surface of my skin and the waters of my oceans are dying. I have spent four billion revolutions around my great mother Sol, experimenting, directing and all life living on my surface but something is very wrong now. Deep within the bowels of my being my great metal core has began to expand pushing upward in huge flows unlike any since my violent youth the distress of observing my long efforts I despair that loneness will embrace me again and I shall become barren and dead like my red bother

Are all my efforts of creation in vain and futile?

“The Sun Sol”; My daughter I observe that there are great cracks beginning to form deep within your surface, your lungs are blackening and your blood is polluted are the air that life must breath is poison

“The Human”; during the day that started so beautiful the birds have ceased to sing, the water ripples for an unknown reason, instead of the sounds and songs of animal life there is silence. Strangle even the wind has stopped and the only sound is the cacophony made by the devices of humans. Deep in the Amazon rain forest the Indians listen with utter unbelief the forest is silent, the trees don’t move in the wind and the greatest of all rivers have stopped. This great artery of life is clogged up and because it does not flow winter arrived elsewhere in the minds of summer.

On the great ocean floor an abyss suddenly appears and two huge continental plates collide with a force so unimaginable and colossal that the sea rises up thirty five thousand feet and fire comes out racing across the ocean to burn up the land in “The Day"

The Next DAY?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuh??.

Could this day be 20012/12/22?

The story will continue if interest is shown

I do not like the idea of reincarnation, but my not liking it does not mean it is not true. If I did exist in some other earthly life I cannot remember the entity I was then, so that part of me if it truly existed is dead.

I am decidedly not returning to this miserable earth and when I finally leave I am moving on to greater realities.

Here are some of the qualities I think make up a decent human being.

Did non emphatic monsters lke Stalin and Hitler have any of these qualities

My qualities that constitute a true human being


Principal 1: Non -violence

Principle 2: Kindness.

Principle 3: Humility

Principle 3: Integrity

Principle 4: Selfless Love

Principal 5: Compassion

Principle 4: Originality (Creativity)

Take Care
