Got a feeling ’21 is going to be a good year…
It has been quite a while since I’ve posted anything. Nearly a year now. I assure you, it is NOT because of the pandemic. In the next few days, I will try to explain where I’ve been spending my time, and why I stopped blogging.
I often wake with an “ear worm”, you know, a song playing in your head. Earlier this week, I woke with a song from Tommy, by The Who
Got a feeling ’21 is going to be a good year… especially if you and me see it in together! – The Who – 1921
This is, of course, fitting. I am optimistic normally, but right now, more than normal. Today I am not going to spend extra time making this post look pretty with pictures and font choices. No, I am just going to type…
I had originally intended to begin blogging again at the end of December, but that morning I woke with a headache, and then the power went out. I gave up… went back to bed. Since then, I have set new goals for beginning the blog again… January 1st seemed very logical. When I missed that, I set each Monday as they came up, January 4th, 11th, 18th… and each time I failed.
Today, January 20th, I began the day committing to posting SOMETHING today… to break the ice. Here it is, past 9:00pm, and I am just getting to it.
When I first intended to blog again, I wrote the following paragraph:
My book was intended to point out that we are incapable of seeing the whole picture. The best we can do is a series of snapshots from different perspectives in order to build a more complete picture. Even then, it requires a motion picture… it is time that restrains us. The oldest illustration of the phenom is seeing a coin. We can only see one side at a time. (An interesting experiment with a camera and a screen… we can set the camera to view the back of the coin and we can look at the front of the coin at the same time. Or, set up multiple cameras and show all the images on the same screen… then we see spooky interaction at a distance. (Two cameras looking at a goldfish in a tank. One viewing the front of the tank, the other viewing the side of the tank. We see two images, but when one image moves, the other does also.)
This, of course, is referring to my book, Four Views Of I – Instinct, Intellect, Intuition, Intention. The idea was to start hinting at the new book I am writing. Perhaps I will get to that, perhaps not. It is all good… I am just going to speak my mind like I have in the past.
As always, I implore you to QUESTION EVERYTHING!
I am going to stop this post with a quote that struck me recently:
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all of its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have i=hitherto harmed us little, but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age. – HP Lovecraft
