The Square. The foundation of the pyramid, two dimensional plane, a square play area where children play in a safe environment with adults towering watching over their safety — it represents the past, all available options and is mainly matriarchal in its nature. The narrative of the children’s tale is fantastic magical adventures of great characters and magnificent creatures and things.

The life of a child, adult, or an old person represents different cycles of a travelling through time finite consciousness of the infinite God. A child follows rules bestowed on them by the parents. The parents keep the child in a safety net of the rules, boundaries that make up a square, a grid of squares, which make up the footprint of the PAST. Through many stories told by the adults, a child learns the images of magic narratives and great adventures that explain the Divine Truth in a manner that a child, who lives in the world of magic and vivid imagination, can understand and relate better to the PRESENT.

Therefore, the children’s gods are spectacular, magical characters, who explore myths, and fantasies. A child is in state of ORDER, following orders and schedules at all time set by the adults. It can be described as a state of Atheism. A child sees the world as one and is one with the world, unconsciously at first, the child grows and learns the abilities and the boundaries of their own and the immediate environment.
/|\

The Triangle. The sides of the pyramid bringing on top of the past an extra dimension of the present, transition from 2D to 3D, from past to present, now+here=nowhere. The four sides of the tower are rising and on any of the sides of it one can only see part of it. It’s a temple culture. Anywhere where people climb on a podium, would it be political or religious etc, is where the temple culture is at. This is the realm of personal priorities and ambitions.

It is the realm of the adults, with their concerns fixed in the present moment for their methodical attendance to the needs and wants of the children in the square play area “below” in the foundation of the temple pyramid culture. The narrative for the adults is heroes quests on the amazing adventures full of exciting events, where the hero has to go through various challenges, learning from mistakes and punishment, also ripping rewards for the completed tasks, finding the princes locked up in a tower, or a pirate treasure map, and then the treasure too, etc. However, the temple environment is very competitive, as the slopes of the pyramid are getting closer to each other, narrowing down the playing field. Thus it is hierarchical and patriarchal for most part.

Adults are experts on the boundaries and abilities, and pass their knowledge to the kids through the stories about the great magical characters and their amazing adventures. The child eventually becomes more self-aware and begins to establish the various areas of interest. While in a safety of a square/cube grid of the past, that what WAS, the world of the past changes very slowly, the child is being gradually introduced into the exciting world of the present, what IS, a fast pace life of constant change ruled by the adults, Yahoo!, represented by a triangle, who control the here and now aspects of life, and make all the rules that the kids must follow, proclaimed at the top of the great pyramid of power, parental or other leadership based, in the Temple of all Pagan gods who compete between themselves for the high job to maintain the infinite forces and cycles of life, institutions, and systems in place, and provide home base of continuous stability for what IS.

The Golden Rule: Those who make the rules that being used – Rule. The adult world is a domain of the high temple pagan gods and is represented by the pyramid of power casting its shadow over the grid of the square past. Thus, the adults have full reign over their children and the past, and guide kids to help them get familiar with the dynamic world of boundaries, continuity, change, and develop awareness of the present. Since the adults are primarily concerned with responsibilities for their young, to each other, and themselves, the adult gods are the great characters of power who administer rewards and punishments, thus teaching the basis of survival and prosperity.

The Circle. Finally, after a life-long journey and trials one can reach the top, the few lucky ones who make it, make their way to “the summit of life where one has only their soul for a company,” the circle represents the poetic truth of the old age — the summit of the pyramid, the Benben cap stone, the HQ with the round table, where the wisdom of the elders is shared and the future plans for the entire tribe, or the self, are made.

The old, once reaching the top of the pyramid of life, are enlightened with the realization of one true God of Hosts, the physical body (earth); the Good Lord of clear, awakened consciousness (water); the Great Spirit of Space (air); and time sensing, emotions feeling the pure Soul (fire), hence do not concern themselves with what IS, but seek to experience and explain the unknown while planning/anticipating for the future.

At the very top of the pyramid comes the realization of i am this i am, not US vs THEM, the all that is, the one sphere of existence, the light of life, the Breath of Creation. The old age sage needs no high temples, no preaching from the podium to the crowds of the spectators below, thus they gather in circles of equals and reason between themselves to figure out what CAN BE, rather than what IS as the adults do in their respective temple environments, in order to enlighten each other and illuminate the unknown, and are, therefore, the active agents of change in their envisioning of the FUTURE.

The gathering of the equals form the ‘beit k’nesset’, the Hebrew term literally means the House of Assembly. The word “shul,” which is Yiddish, is also used to describe the gathering of equals, that derived from a German word meaning “school,” and emphasizes the synagogue’s role as a place of study. The word “synagogue,” which is actually a Greek translation of Beit K’nesset, means “place of assembly,” and is related to the word “synod” which comes from the Greek words that mean “walking together.”

Therefore, the old age represents the equality of a circle, the infinity of a sphere, when all of the diversity of life comes together into one being, one body, one God, thus establishing the Rule of Monotheism. The old age is a wise age. All ages have a purpose and a proper forum, from a square, a triangle, or a circle. Therefore, the GOD of old age is The Poetic Truth God.

Summary. The past (what was)(square/cube)(Spectacular/Magical), the present (what is)(triangle/pyramid)(Reward/Punishment), and the future (what can be)(circle/sphere)(Poetic/Truth), are here and now happening at once.

The One Page Bible (metaphysics)

January 22nd, 2015

God is the physical host body at the centre of the whole universe, as a point of reference, creative input, and experience of it, the earth element, while mind is Lord of consciousness and senses of right vs wrong, the water element, the Spirit is space, the air we breathe in and out, the air element, and the Soul is emotional feelings with which we experience passage of time and perceiving change, the fire element.

~.~

All four correspond to the foundations of life on earth and the four kingdoms of life, earth being the mineral kingdom, water being the fungi kingdom, air being the plant kingdom, and fire is the animal kingdom, with the fifth kingdom as a capstone representing the human kingdom of the universal awareness, micro and macro, ether, ormus, the energy of love, kindness, empathy, compassion, wisdom, encompassing the whole matrix of life and being aware of the big picture and the tiny details.

~.~

the universe is a playground and the earth is where we learn how to share it. i am ❤ (love) this i am, not US O:) (angels) vs THEM 3:) (demons).

~.~

Also, the body represents the needs, while the mind the wants, desires. however a healthy mind wants first to help its host body to get what it needs and to look after it well. as a saying goes, in healthy body is a healthy spirit. and my version, the body is holy, the rest is a story.

~.~

The body IS the nature, right smack at the centre of it all. hence the nature calls, and the reason, the mind, is part of the body’s sensory network monitoring and processing the information within and around it, using it to provide for the body’s needs, big part of the nature, before the consciousness is free to focus on the diverse desires and ideas of fun.

~.~

Sure the spirit (space) is infinite, however one attains life, and hence the remote possibility of immortality or a healthy lifespan by having a body, would it be an atom, a plant, an animal, human, robot, or galaxy, etc, as a centre of reference and experience, the body is the physical centre of the whole universe, and hence all the available options that define the free choice, self perception and determination of what one needs and wants.

The War On Freedom Ensues In Paris, The City Of Love

January 16th, 2015

ParisFranceMoon

~.~

In the wake of the disturbing reports about the terrorist attacks on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, may all effected by this tragedy to maintain their peace at heart, positive spirits, strength to heal and in the resolve to protect the basic universal freedoms of life itself.

~.~

The universal freedoms are shared universally by all life, same as in the human kingdom the human rights are shared by all humans, or the private corporate world where the rights for dividends are shared by all shareholders, etc, thus, the universal human rights, the basic rights that are based on the human needs, unlike the desires, wants, that define the business world of the profit seeking corporations, these basic needs of life, therefore, define the foundation of our individual and collective existence, requiring the organization for maintenance and provision of life’s diverse needs and desires.

~.~

The freedom of expression is a fundamental universal right of life for self determination, which enables the necessary collaboration of the minds and hearts to create, maintain, and evolve the human life, societies, and civilization as we know it. Without the right to freely be able to express oneself, all progress will come to a halt, causing cultural and spiritual decay, followed by the eventual ideological dictatorship by a minority of criminal fanatics imposing their tyranny over the peaceful, morally bound majority, which will ensue farther collapse of civilization.

~.~

When facing the challenging situations, it is important to not succumb to the fear senses, that are guided by the animal, emotional, instincts which are responsible for the body to stay alive by way of reacting in the attack or flee manner, completely as to not loose connection to the higher human consciousness and awareness, thus greatly aiding in the ability to respond and deal with the emergency or pressing issues.

~.~

Therefore, when the freedom is shared by all, then it is called the universal freedom. The freedom to be alive, to be secure, to self express, etc, as acknowledged and described in the various legal documents, such as the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the national charter and civil rights, including the criminal law which looks after the safety and security of being, something very important to all of us.

~.~

Now, this last bit, the criminal law, the international and the national, ties in with the possible logical conflict between the right to self express and determination, the foundation stones of the religious rights to follow the prescribed religious doctrine law, which then in some extreme cases may call for violence against certain people or groups who happen to fall outside of what is considered acceptable to that religious prescription, and the right for the individual, regardless of the others and their beliefs and the organization there of, for the secure life and well being in the civilized democratic society they are part of, not a tribal hierarchy run by the zealot religious dictatorship.

~.~

And too, the right for self expression and determination, as those who profess to be God’s prophets enjoy. Thus, regardless of the religious believes, the criminal law draws a line across all strata of human interactions, would it be romantic, family, commercial, cultural, political, spiritual, whatever, the behaviour which attacks the sanctity of human life and well being is, by definition, criminal, and the criminal law, after a long time of evolution, reflects this innate need to protect that which binds as all. It is about the Freedom Baby who needs our love and protection.

~.~

One is free to express oneself, however the distinction should be made between the freedom of expression and the words that are used to instigate a criminal action against another, crime is a crime regardless what banners it is hid behind, hence voicing for someone to be hurt or killed, or doing it yourself, is not an expression but an action, along with the fact that the freedom of expression is also subject to respecting the nation’s laws, which, depending on the nation or region, have different laws, traditions, and customs, thus those who live in these territories are also subjects to the established social laws and norms. If someone feels offended about another’s expressions it is not enough reason to commit the criminal acts, for crime against the sanctity of the human body is crime against humanity and the Lord God.

~.~

The wrong is wrong no matter who had done it in the past or how much blood was spilled because of it. even if all wars were fought for the wrong reasons still it make no right from wrong. Crime is a crime and responding with violence over expression is a crime against humanity and God. People are free to believe what they want, hence the universal freedom of expression, as long this believe is for their personal use and is not enforced on the others, who are free to agree or to disagree and practice whatever believe of their own, again, as long it does not infringe into the rights and freedoms of others. To enforce the censorship is not freedom of expression, regardless of the reasons, granted that different territories and cultures have different ideas of what constitutes an open, free expression vs hate speech, which endangers the safety and well being of others, not the exercise of free speech meant for personal expression and self determination, by inciting the crime of violent response, which is an action and not expression.

~.~

Hence the democratic societies have the laws to establish the boundaries where one is free to act in ways which effects them alone, and when the actions of one are effecting another, infringing in the other’s rights for the security of being and freedom of expression and self determination. Therefor, besides the criminal code, there are label, defamation, slander, etc. laws to protect individuals in the democratic society from each other’s transgressions and lack of the better judgement, would that be the result of a drunken stupor or some foreign to the established social norms and laws ideology or professed cultural traditions. We are talking about the democratic society here and not the dictatorship of the ideological zealots. Murder is murder, God too commanded, Thy Shalt Not Kill, it was not a recommendation, so does behaves the healthy human consciousness — living, not killing one another, in a democratic society that is, with the societal norms of the civilized behaviour and laws to enforce it, as necessary.

~.~

The freedom of self expression does not mean the hate speech attacking another, or speech inciting a violence, which, according to at least the Canadian law, is seen as an act and not expression. One has to be aware of this important distinctions in order to freely be able to express themselves without infringing on the rights and well being of others.

~.~

The point i am making is that a violent response to a personal expression is criminal, as well, the expression calling for violence is also criminal. An eye for an eye. Having a thick skin against personal attacks is different from social norms and laws set to protect us from each other. This is not a high school anymore but the real world, and even children sometimes cross the line that they did not know was there, to their surprise surprise, there are apparently consequences to their effects on the freedoms and well being of others. One simply cannot go and kill people if they didn’t like what they heard. However one cannot abuse the freedom of expression in such a way that it becomes threatening and damaging to another. Fair is fair.

~.~

The speech is free only if it is not at the expense of the other person. one can express oneself without the need to resort to the personal attacks, bulling, and hate mongering which can cause violence and murder, thus the civilized societies have laws to protect people against such an abuse of the freedom of personal expression, called libel, defamation, hate speech, inciting violence, accessory to crime, etc.

~.~

There is no free speech without the strings attached when it involves more than one person. Sure, you are free to express yourself in the shower or anywhere you are alone all you want, however it becomes not so cut and dry when it involves talking about others, audience, pointing fingers, calling for violence, then it is not a matter of simple self expression but a matter of proper social conduct, communications, and public relations.

~.~

One can criticize , however, there are limits to how it is done properly without being offensive or outright criminal. The human body is sacred and those who defile it, abuse it, intentionally hurt it, or kill it will deal with the wrath of God and the consequences of their actions and the freedom of choice. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Repeating the wrong thing over and over again is not going to make it right, no matter in how great numbers it is done. At the summit of life, one has only their soul for a company, It is not worth to loose your soul because of a group psychosis. In the democratic societies it is strictly prohibited to respond violently to other’s expressions of personal believes. Such behaviour is called psychotic, unreasonable, and criminal. Ignorance is not a defence and will not shelter one from the consequences of the free choices one makes in life. At the end, God will sort His own. i am <3 i am, not US O:) vs THEM 3:). Peace. Amen.

The Votering Hole

October 18th, 2014

what? vote? voter in muddy waters… the political pageant of personality contest is about to start, the contestants look sharp and try to vow the crowds with their eloquent, articulate speeches and infectious smiles. 😀

Who will win the popularity crown is decided by using the archaic First-past-the-post mathematically inaccurate voting system, compared to a better method of the ranked ballots, thus the winner gets all the power & glory.

However, the popularity contest is nothing more than people deciding on to whom should they give their vote of confidence to represent their interests and views in the decision making, where the actual issues and solutions being addressed.

Therefore, by deciding to pass one’s right to decide on the issues and solutions to someone else, would it be an individual or a group, does not actually address the issues at hand. All that it is resolving is personal preference of a voter who or what represents her/his vote.

That free choice should be always there regardless of the voting system used in the decision making process; the ability for the voters to either vote on the issues themselves, or nominate their different representatives, either another person, a star like David Suzuki on the environmental issues, or the Green party, then the Liberals on the family issues, NDP for labour related, and the Conservatives with business and finance, for example, same like the corporate minority shareholders can have their representatives at the GM yielding significant weight in the decision making as a balk of voting power.

That said, the point is that the voting should be done by nominating issues and then the most popular issues go for a second round where solutions are proposed and ranked from the most popular to the least. If person doesn’t want to vote themselves on the federal/provincial level and only want to vote on municipal then they can trust their vote to another person or a group, and if that person or a group do not perform to the voter’s expectation then the voter can revoke his vote of confidence from such party and either use it themselves or pass it to someone else.

So, to summarize, vote to nominate the issues at hand and rank them in priorities, then nominate and rank the solutions to those issues. The political pageant shows of popularity contest does not solve any issues, all it does is shuffling around whose vote is represented by whom, which is a personal preference and has nothing to do with actual decision making or problem solving.

Some have asked, what about the 100th issue, which is also important? Well, if the issue is important enough, it will be addressed; by you for yourself, by the family for the family, by the community for the community, by the nation for the nation, by the world for the world.

100th issue or not, at least you can rest assured that you are not simply wasting your time but actually dealing with the matter at hand, instead of participating in the busybody theatrics of puppet politics which solve nothing for the voter and for all other groups they purport to represent and care for.

At some point the parents tell kids that it is enough of playing in the sandbox and now it is time to do something else very important, part of growing up. So is the current electoral system, it’s a sandbox where voters play the pretend democracy.

However sooner or later some people get frustrated that the game is not for real, thus they loose interest and look for something better to do with their time and energy, like making decisions for themselves on the issues that affect them the most.

The bottom line is that, then the actual issues are being addressed, making the civil political engagement more meaningful than the current shallow hot air circus of political pageant sideshow. It’s revolting. Why would any intelligent person give their right to make decisions that effect their livelihood and neighbourhood to some political creeps who couldn’t care less much about anything, many even about themselves, considering the big picture.

Revolt against the fake stupid choices, demand the voting reform based on the real freedom of choice and democracy in action!!!

Communism AND Capitalism, NOT Communism VS Capitalism

October 17th, 2014

It is very simple in theory:

Communismcommon needs, i.e. bodily functions & basic security of being, as described by the UN Human Rights declaration, along with other critical infrastructures organized and prioritized by the public governments.

Capitalismdifferent wants, i.e. various mind-derived desires of different individuals to get non-essential things, which is organized and provided for by the private business within the free-market economy driven by the supply and demand of the consumers.

The important distinction should be made of apparent dichotomy between the need to use something vs the want to derive value from it. If human sustenance is not pegged on any particular value driven exchange, then there is no problem if some group collects shells and one of them has most of the shells and dominates that group’s shells availability and their going rate, since everybody’s livelihoods is not being threatened by it.

It only becomes a problem when human need to use things and resources for survival is interfered with by others who want to extract some value from it, hence forcing artificial scarcity and unsustainable conditions aimed at extracting monetary value vs using resources wisely to provide for our common human needs.

Instead of focusing on work, aka chopping old growth to make toothpicks, the focus should be on the how to share and manage common resources to address common needs, the generated GDP can issue the dividend to the citizen shareholders who collectively own the municipal, provincial, and federal corporations, and if they work for the government then they get paid a salary for performing public trust duties, then the general population can decide for themselves, free from the stress associated with the basic survival, what they want beyond their basic needs, and if they want to work for someone to get it or not, decision which is built on the consensus basis and not due to the fear for one’s life. As long as a society does not provide its members fare representation in the resource sharing and provisions of basic functions of life it is doomed to be unstable, corrupt, abusive, miserable, and ultimately to fail.

The human body represents the human needs and the government represents the collective agreement in addressing these basic common needs, hence the communist ideology results from such a focus.

In the dichotomy of the opposing concepts which define the whole, the mind represents the human wants, after it has finished ~wanting~ to help the body with what needs to be done, the mind has many ideas of its own of what it wants to do, experience, and accomplish. The big difference is the priorities between the needs and wants, the physical needs are not negotiable and have to be addressed one way or another, while wants have more wiggle room and can be postponed or/and altered. The commerce fuelled business of the private sector represents the collective agreement in addressing these basic common different wants for a market place where exchange of goods and services are driven by the supply and demand, hence the capitalist ideology results from such a focus.

The free market economy of an idealized state of goods and services exchange that i am referring   to as an example of what the individuals would want to engage in after their basic needs are satisfied, a matter of fact, is not the same as the current model of so-called “capitalism,” which is not driven by the supply and demand as many would think but is rather centralized  hierarchical system built and maintained with an aim to only benefit small private interest groups, while forces people to make tough labour choices, or lack there of, in order to be able to afford, barely, their basic survival.

Obviously such is not the consensus built system of free enterprise but a totalitarian dictatorship of wealth accumulation by the very few elites at the expense of the overwhelming majority who are illegally and malevolently kept poor through artificially maintained scarcity, fear, fatigue, hunger, and disease, who were deprived of their universal inalienable rights, rightful share in common good, tools, and freedom of choice.

As a saying goes, “in capitalism man oppresses man, in communism it’s the other way around.”
