HOVERING ABOVE ZERO
Think of something red.
Think of something blue.
You are hooked up to an EEG; think of blue; now green.
Our memories may be kinda-sorta retrieved electronically. We do not know where exactly.
We know that memory is stored in the brain. And there is evidence that leads science to agree to the possibilty that all of our trillion or more cells store memory. What wew do not know is whether memory is stored beyond our phyical selves.
This book will be an experiment. We are not attempting to prove anything. This is not a religious search for proof of anything. We will begin with an idea which we will treat as a premise; What is there to learn about the acquisition of knowledge if we agree that there is memory that exists beyond the physical.
Let’s begin with a bang; a big, big BANG
- Brussels sprouts
- Beans (green, kidney, garbanzo)
- Greens (collard, kale, mustard, turnip)
- Pea pods
- Sugar snap peas
- Swiss chard
- Water chestnuts
- Cabbage (green, bok choy, Chinese)
- Salad greens (chicory, endive, escarole, iceberg lettuce, romaine, spinach, arugula,

Perhaps conservatives tend to think rather than rely on biases when making decisions. When the thinkers outnumber the followers, then and only then will we be free. Whaddaya think about that? Love, Lee.
ONLY TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY? REALLY?
Why only two opinions to every issue?
Why only two political parties?
Why only left and right?
Right and wrong?
Good and bad?
Green and ripe?
I prefer red white and blue.
Words that rhyme with orange.
And twenty kinds of potato chips.
Kissing the lips of the women I loved and
Every kind of candy imaginable.
Think about it.
HAT RACK DEMOCRACY
HAT RACK DEMOCRACY
The price of Freedom is Willingness.
The price of Fairness is Freedom.
I AM THAT, I AM
Hurry is fear. Fear and love are…?
Old men and puppy dogs need something to occupy their “time” if only to mark their territory.
The title is better than the post in bleuglas
A FAIR TRIAL is based on PROOF.
A JUST VERDICT is based on EVIDENCE.
When we judge others it is important to understand the difference in these two ideals.
These two similarly worded ideologies guide most of us in relationships, our work and our politics.
(one of these is very destructive. The other is a function of Love.)
THE LANGUAGE OF LOVERS
EMPATHY is the language of Lovers, the Affirmation of the Fearless, the Willingness of the Faithful, and the home of Compassionate, Freedom Lovers everywhere. Empathy is outbound and frees those who know Love to share it. “Accept the love”; be willing to share it; to “Accept the Love and pass it on”.
BLONDIE, THE BACK-SCRATCHER’S MANTRA
Sympathy on the other hand is the language of the aloof. “Been there – done that (I’ll never go there again.)”, “I know whatcha mean”, “Yup, I can identify with that; why I remember…”.
This is the voice of Approval, at best; a bargaining chip; “I’ll make your world safer (but you’ll owe me; know what I mean, know what I mean, huh, huh, do ya huh?”)
HITHER, THITHER & YON
The pathway to Knowledge is paved with Love.
The measure of distance is unusually incomprehensible
The vision of destiny is absolutely unfathomable.
That faith is required begs the question.
To ignore The Rest of Me is like walking after sundown on an unlit street,
write down some one liners in a small book and carry it with me on Sundays.
Metaphores for the first fear. Jaws. The mgm lion in my dreams and the earth beneath my feet w as giving way.
The life of the universe is driven by the death and destruction of its components (everything in the universe…)
our difficulty in understanding infinity is demonstrated by attepting ti describe the events of an immaterial zone with traits and attributes of a material world. In other words in order to understand FOREVER we must first hypothesize a description thereof.
SPACE DUST DOOLIABBA
Everything in the universe is made from the crumbs of something else.
If everything in the material universe was suddenly invulnerable, movement would stop and the Universe would die.
The Memory of all Past and Future Events, the Source of all Love would Forget everything and in fact would never have Been.
In order for the Universe to thrive it must be in a constant state of change. in order to guarantee change the material life of everything must be limited.
And the tool that makes it so is what psychologists refer to as affirmation.
The birth of life brings with it the concept of fear. Fear drive us to seek safety,”Us” being everything from the lowest form of life to the greatest. A blade of grass does not “think” but domesticated plants react differently when one caretaker is replaced with another.
A large rock hurtling through space does not “think” but nevertheless has been fleeing the worst danger of its life by taking the shortest possible route, a straight line.
In reality this rock is a mere fragment of a larger fragment of yet a larger rock and is not going in a straight line at all but is actually in orbit around a large ball of gas which also has been misled in the facts of its destiny, totally unaware of the hungry black hole blocking the path of its solar plane.
You and I and the cells within us emerged from our maternal safe place, encountered danger and began our lives in terror not knowing that each safe place we entered was a reminder of ultimate danger. It is this awareness that ultimately brings us to our knees.
For most or all of our lives the knowledge of our destiny with death is our greatest strength.
Yet there are others who realize that the safety they sought, expecting and hoping to be Love was actually extremely conditional.
We eventually surrendered as we stumbled unto the unconditional , timeless zone inhabited by the memory of all past and future events we now know as Love.
