A MIND FOREVER VOYAGING THROUGH STRANGE SEAS OF THOUGHT, ALONE


This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.



The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

THINGS THAT DON'T MAKE AN INTERESTING BLOG, BUT PUT THEM ALL TOGETHER AND IT PROBABLY STILL WON'T BE AN INTERESTING BLOG

I guess you could call this things I read recently that I thought were interesting but not sure others will.

Recently heard someone talking about Tryptophan.  For those of my imaginary readers with good memories, you will probably remember the crisis in the 1990's when a bunch of people took over the counter Tryptophan and died from kidney or liver issues so it was pulled from the market and made illegal to sell.

What I learned is the Tryptophan that caused all the issues was not natural tryptophan but genetically modified tryptophan by some company in Japan and that is what caused the people to die.  To further make the story interesting, it was pharmaceutical companies that pushed the government to make it illegal to sell in this country because, tryptophan - a naturally occurring amino acid - was also extremely effective in dealing with certain issues like sleep disorders and behavior disorders and by removing it from the market, it removed the competition for Paxil and that sleeping pill that produces walking and driving zombies.

I suppose I am due for a call from the SEC very soon.  Seems I sold my company stock 10 days ago, right before the bottom dropped out.  Lawyer made me do it, seems if I didn't, the bankruptcy trustee would confiscate it, so he told me to sell it and buy something I need that isn't frivolous.  So I bought a lifesize punching bag that looks like my lawyer.

Meanwhile, the financial markets are tanking and nobody expected it to happen - in August.  Lots were expecting it to happen in September though, from Johnathon Cahn's new book to others, many have noticed a seven year pattern.  Go back seven years to September and we had the great collapse where we had to bail out Goldman, Morgan and others because they were too big to fail.  Go back seven and 9/11 and the crash.  Go back from there and it's 1994 and a bond crash.  Go back seven and it's the 1987 crash in October, 1980 is the Savings and Loan and 1973 is the beginning of a two year 50% reduction of the market.

What did surprise me is finding out China has 27 trillion in debt.  Huh?  I thought they were the one country not in debt.  Crap, they are worse off than we are, not only do they have more debt than us, they own a couple of trillion of ours too.

There is a great reset coming one day folks, this can't continue, and I hope you have about 6 months of food stored cause you are going to need it.  I don't know if it's going to go so bad it will be the rioting zombie apocalypse some predict, probably in some areas it will - never let a crisis not produce rioting and looting is some motto somewhere I'm sure - but just not having to go to the store for a couple of months might be a good thing.

Let's face it, every country is so far in debt, it can't be paid, but who actually owns the debt?  These aren't your mom and dad's savings bonds here folks, add up the debt of all the Euro countries, the USA, Canada, and China and someone out there is holding nearly 100 trillion in debt.  Is it Goldman, Morgan and the people behind the Fed?  Rothchild and Rockefeller?

In the end, there is serious chaos coming, maybe the best solution is to just wipe out all debt.  Personal debt, auto, home, student loans, city, state, and national debt.  What will fail?

Everything.  But here is the point.  Everything is going to fail anyways.  The problem is if we let the same people who created this mess create the plan to 'save' us, whom will be saved?  Those people.  The rest will be screwed.  Best we all take the hit than the elite walk away laughing while the rest of us starve.

But, alas, it will be them who create the plan, not us, they will thrive, most will not survive.  When did I become so depressive a writer?

Watched some DVD's and YouTubes recently on a few topics.  One was Bob Fletcher's 4 hour DVD Incoming, which while there were some interesting parts, may be one of the more boring things I've sat through.  His JFK was better - and shorter.

What was kind of interesting was the part on crop circles.  I've never paid much attention to crop circles.  I have no idea what causes them, I am pretty sure it's not Bob and Doug McKenzie with some rope, 2x4's, and a six pack designing those intricate patterns overnight.  I can't imagine a bunch of MIT grads going out and doing it overnight without being seen.  They are cool and amazing things and think I might spend some time researching them in the future.

What also was of interest was Sagan sent a signal when SETI first started, a binary pattern of things, and there is a picture of said pattern Sagan holds up showing what it looked like.  Twenty seven years later, we received a reply - actually we received a reply of exactly what Sagan sent.  Now many jump on that proving it was sent back to us by some alien race, but I thought what if it bounced back to us?  We think we know the size and shape of the universe, but we really don't, we just see what our programming sends back to us, but it doesn't make it so.

And why exactly do we send out signals in the first place, shouting "HEY OVER HERE".  If there is such a thing as 'life' on other planets, if they show up here, we would be like ants to them - we are betting on the more intelligent a life form, the more benevolent a life form, but where does that assumption come from?

They could look at us as dinner, slaves, ants to step on while they populate our planet.  Of course, that would make the whole debt thing go away quickly.

Moving near the edge at night
Dust is dancing in the space
A dog and bird are far away
The sun comes up and down each day

Light and shadow change the walls
Halley's Comet's come and gone
The things I touch are made of stone
Falling through this night alone

Love, don't go away
Come back this way
Come back and stay
Forever and ever

Please stay

Dust is dancing in the space
A dog and bird are far away
The sun comes up and down each day
The river flows out to the sea

Love, don't go away
Come back this way
Come back and stay
Forever and ever

The world spins
