I see. You'd described conservatism as the new radicalism hence the questions.

Energy always moves, you can't get from the branch to the root by tesseract.

Well maybe david starling would have an understanding of how to do that, since he is interested in both protecting the environment and the world's body, and in an Aquarian future in which time (and maybe therefore space?) is not relevant.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

A couple of months ago there was this interview of a musician I was watching, whose been around long enough in the musical scene to observe first hand an ebb and flow that he saw between, broadly "emo" and "psychedelic" musical forms. A whole mountains and valleys type deal. Perhaps the time-scale I'm looking on is merely the regular ebb and flow of generations juxtaposed against one another, rather than a longer time scale that perhaps a Uranus/Neptune conjunction would signify.

We don't have to know how, because an Aquarian Age is by nature uniquely suited to the Earth's Ages, and it's happening gradually on its own. Adjusting to the transition is easier for some than for others. My watchword is "Maintain". The end result will be beyond anything we can currently comprehend.

I actually caught a cold/flu WHILE drinking a cup of Starbucks coffee! It came on suddenly, beginning in my throat, when I was about halfway through it. Needless to say, I'm now sticking with organic, fair-trade coffee, and avoiding the commercial coffee-vendors. It's true my resistance was down, after a full week of physical work in hotter than normal temperatures, but I had two days to recover, starting that evening. Hadn't been sick in over 3 years.

I vaguely remember at one point the topic was either food or love and it was a Venusian Moon that was in the sky. I remember a Pisces Moon period when it was just dream talking and philosophical musing.
I should keep a dream journal and see if the sign the Moon is in changes the themes noticeably. I have such odd dreams. I tried to tell my coworker that I have weird dreams and he immediately said he did too and said he had the realest conversation with his ex-girlfriend the night before. That wasn't quite what I meant. lol I dream of supernatural experiences that couldn't happen irl more so than experiences that could happen in this world.

Oh that sounds awful. The flu seems to be going around lately at my work.

I should really just stick to organic herbal tea when I'm socializing. Caffeine gets me every time and I always regret it. Chamomile is the way though.

Water is a good idea for sure. I also just ate a ton of bread. lol Hopefully that helps. I might take a cold shower too, so that I calm down. I never realized how much caffeine affected me until I quit for a few months. Then I realized how terrible it was. All my coworkers and friends love coffee though and that's how they like to socialize, but it's honest to god wayyy too much for me anymore.

You have the most intense dream life of anybody I know, hands down. So I think it would be very fruitful for you to keep a journal, and see if you find any correspondences with astrological placements. You probably remember the dream I shared with you about that fiery ox and the fact that I woke up to the Aries Moon conjunct my IC. I think there was some Taurus in the sky because I remember the ox aspect of it being relevant to the astrology, too.

I find dream journaling difficult. Capture a sequence or a particular weird thing? Meanwhile the rest just slips away..
I'd say I have a good memory for dreams. I can usually make sense of the plot when I wake up and I think I lucid dream a bit, which probably helps with me remembering. I think some people lucid dream and then direct the dream sequence consciously, but I just like to go with the flow.

I'll realize I'm dreaming half-way through a plot, but I keep going with it and give myself little tools to accomplish what I need to.

I posted a dream on here a while back in the spiritual realm. That level of recall is fairly normal for me, although the content changes a lot depending on the night. I'll find it and link it in a sec.

We might differ because you might see normal as an issue of value, while I'm seeing it as objective, observable phenomenon.

Easy for someone to say who only thinks deeply. While I think the way the world is people are being actively obstructed from reaching deeper potentials, I see thinking deeply similar to how I see any physical capability. One might be a hella fast swimmer, but Michael Phelps' body is literally built in such a way that gives him an undeniable advantage as a swimmer.
Very much since words are in many cases arbitrary. We could see someone we consider normal and decide that instead of being called normal, we'll just call them weird. But I am actually speaking on a conceptual level rather than on a lingual level


And you're right, it's not about the words, but what the words represent the impressions they deliver which are vastly and infinitely more complex than the words themselves


But normalcy, the concept of it...It's moreso just embedded in your perspective. You could look at the world and see the normalcy, but hidden beneath the normalcy, you could also see the chaos driving it. It depends on which lens you choose that day and second or that chooses you


Any patterns we see are a reflection of something, but not anything that has to do with others, it has to do with us. Sometimes I am inclined to see multitudes of people as doing the same exact things everyday and see that as 'normal', but then I have to question if they're all actually doing the same exact things everyday or if that's not just a figment of my illusions. The fact that any other person could look around and not see that same pattern means the pattern doesn't actually exist except in someone's mind


that doesn't mean it doesn't matter, it just means it means something different than what they thought it did


as for the deep thinking thing. I feel like that doesn't fit the Michael Phelps analogy as we can put Michael Phelp's body through tests, we can study him, we can do a great variety of things producing easly tangible results to see that his body is that of a spectacular swimmer and he was given that gift. But how do we measure such things when it comes to the mind, the brain, the intangible self?


I do think I need to elaborate on 'deep thinking' tho. I don't believe there's a certain specific set of characteristics of a deep thinker in regards to what will be produced by their deep thought. Most people look at intelligence, knowledge, understanding, deep thought, etc. as matters that can be measured by what's produced, but that would be remiss because what can be produced is infinite, as infinite as the individual and their imagination


If Michael Phelps had never even dipped a foot in a pool, his body would still be that of someone who could be an elite swimmer. But how do we measure the capabilities and the cap of human mental potential? What if there is no cap on it? What if it has infinite forms? how do we know what someone can do with their mind before they do it?

I've written down some of my dreams before. What tended to happen is that I'd have to spend a page or two describing the scene before I got any close to speaking about what "actions" were taking place. Sometimes I got impatient and truncated the visionary descriptions so I could get everything on paper. When I've shared them with a few people, I've been told that I should write a book.
