From the sublime to the ridiculous, Thomas Paine in 1794, in The Age of Reason, stated that the two are so closely related that it is but one step from one to the other.
MSN news: “Shady dealings run amok in sunny South Florida (in Jeb Bush country). I should know. I lived in South Florida 19 years. On April Fool’s Day 1999, my wife and I departed for good on a jetliner. It was back to square one in Portland, Oregon. On April 21, 1999, we departed Portland in our home on wheels where we spent the next nine years. Home was wherever we were.
Our wanderings ended, from the ridiculous to the sublime, in the tall timber near Mt. Hood, Oregon. Most folks are not on my wave length, but I must tell you that it is rewarding.
Binary, composed of, relating to, or involving two; dual, the binary code of computers for instance, ones and zeros, forming computer language, numbers have a fascinating history. It would seem that numbers language is basic.
I recall the experiment in a corn field with crows. A blind was built in the middle of the corn field. One man entered. Until he departed, the crows stayed away. Two men entered the blind. Until both left, the crows stayed away. Five men entered the blind. Until all left the crows stayed away. Six men entered the blind and five left. The crows returned. They can’t count past five.
The use of numbers, making logic, goes beyond our sensesibility. We humans, thousands of years back employed geometry in not only magnificent buildings but in determining events and personal characteristics, based on when and where the person was born. They geometrized the heavens. And now we’re being told by the cutting edge of science that the universe is nothing like we think.
In lab experiments, science has learned that light waves, when observed, turn into particles called photons. Photons enter our heads through the optic nerve and we see things—holographic allusions. Light waves “travel” in a vacuum. Water waves and air waves travel in a medium. Light wave appear to travel. Science has proven that once two photons are attached they are always in instant communication, even if on opposite extremes of the universe.
Science now tells us that there is a dimension of infinite possibility with which our minds interact. Our thoughts manifest themselves with things. It is mind over matter—and unfortunately , minds manipulated to think what authority wants us to think. Authority in control of our minds.
No other life form on the planet can use natural resources to manufacture any more than the most rudimentary things. Extraterrestrial humanoids have been here thousands of years, we learn, bringing with them advanced knowledge. It is kept secret by an elite few in control, but cracks are appearing in their armor. The knowledge they now hide is being exposed. It is just a question of time until their big secret is exposed.
The world is on the threshold of a quantum leap forward. The race is on as to whether the powers that be can enslave us before we the people take charge. In either case, the aliens will play a role.
The present scenario reminds us of the situation when more advanced Europeans moved onto native America’s land. Natives faired poorly, except for those who moved into new ways, such as living in a permanent home rather than a wigwam. It reminds us that during the pioneer days, rather than depend on government, neighbor depended on neighbor. The people I know don’t want to talk about it. Sorry about that.
