emotion’s thoughts


 

dreamer

Zeal

Emotions exposed like a banana peeled;
Love, hate, anxiety; meant to make moments real
Yet uncertain of how they are truly meant to feel,
Nor to the ways, by them, to confidently deal;
Giving rise to multitude of drugs designed to purposely steal;
To subjugate life’s true essence; its spontaneity, its zeal.

 

Fantasy’s Gain

Lost in a fantasy of the mind

Perfection of reason one can find

No blemish to purpose of any kind

A worldly presence – so sublime

 

Love’s emotion in all its essence

Nature’s beauty beyond transcendence

Breath to life sparkles with effervescence

Hormones rage as in adolescence

 

Brief though this experience may be

It is a moment to be felt, to see

For it is a state easy to conceive

It is for all who live and breathe

Human emotions at times lost to reality’s pain

Often taken to lengths insane

Let the wondrous power of the mind reign

By resigning to a moment, to a fantasy’s gain.

 

Singularity of Being

Existence is a cocoon of my making

Detached from passions of others

Numbed by avoidance of emotion

Sustained by the singularity of being

Absorbed into self-absorption

 

Abyss

The parameters that define this life are shrinking.

I am down to the base figure of one.

Looking outward only – not connecting

Floating in a void consumed with others

Singular digits comprised of the same emotion

But void of the fraternal element

Wishing and wanting yet non-committal

Expending time like an abundant liquid

Frittering away what we have – are

In anticipation of a greater dream

Fear is the glue that binds

The unknown –

In death comes the answer

To a life spent questioning

Perceived Truths


clock

Perpetuated traditions and beliefs can close a mind
To more fruitful alternative out there to seek, find;
The threat is to make the thinking mind blind,
Thwarting real, substantive advancement for Humankind.

Futures are founded upon much-antiquated thought,
Historical records illustrate from this, hardship is often bought;
Wars, famine and ultimate death of many are the results got;
Are these the outcomes for Human advancement sought?

When will humanity finally understand, learn
Ill-gotten wisdom is best to ignore and spurn?
If the desire for goodness for all humanity to yearn;
Maybe its time from some perceived `truths’ to forever turn.

Inspired Word


 

inspired-words  Inspired, the working mind delves into the complexities of cerebrally motivated patterns of expression, to incite a complexity of algorithmic, conjunctive thought’s creation seemingly, mysteriously, expunged from the invisible, yet promisingly real, ethereal cosmological energy; consciousness, presiding over the universal, organic presence: Humanity, disseminated and presented as `Word’.

AI: Virtual Reality: Why?


 

 

AI: Virtual Reality:

The Virtual Reality adventure is driven by the need to achieve a Utopian, Humanist realm to supplant the as yet, seemingly, unattainable true reality that is human existence.

No Longer Am I Able


 

tash can

The tentacles of endeavor that connote my purpose for being are withering and dying from interest receding.

Nourishment from intellect’s gains becoming less abundant

rendering this creative life increasingly redundant.

 

What magic can be channeled to alter this downward course

before totally atrophying this unseen energy, mental force?

External, electronic medium source set to induce neuron’s firing

lack any essence of wisdom to stimulate words of worth or inspiring.

 

Consumed and lacking any mental creativeness to spend

into oblivion,  I feel consigned and obliged to descend.

So take this reward, this last motif of expression, though be it lame, no longer am I able, toward any literary fame,  strive to ascend.

homage to a world lost 4

(To view, Click on image and once there, scroll down to view each successive page)

Encountering one of my earliest published works online gave pause to what I wrote and subsequently self-published under the title: HOMAGE TO A WORLD LOST . Contained within this book, debut 2010, are poems reflective of the tumultuous first decade of this 21st Century.

The reading of many of the poems clearly  echoes, in a prophetic way, what is being experienced around the globe presently namely; the seeming collapse of effective governance and the politics it embodies; the run-away state of sectarian and religious terrorism throughout the globe; and, the extremes of climate change driven by global warming to name but a few of the subjects addressed.

Here is your chance to freely read some or all of the 133 pages contained therein and, for yourself, to draw your own conclusions about the state of a WORLD LOST!

Human Paradox


Q: Is the divisive nature of humankind inherent in the need, as an individual, to be self-identified?

Q: Is the formation of human groups derived from the ability and/or want to locate with others of humankind perceived to retain the same self-identifiable values/qualities?

Q: Is the inherent need to be self-identifiable, as an individual or group comprised of those perceived to retain the same identifiable values/qualities, a precursor to conflict instigated by the competition of one individual/group’s values/qualities versus those of another individual/group’s?

Q: If the answers to these questions are `YES’; would it not be logical to ask: 

                                       Is conflict an inherent component of humankind?

Paradox:

Progress and advancement of the human condition: the desire to outdo and/or surpass the proven values/qualities of they/that, who/which presently dominate, is derived from the influence of competition.

Competition is readily identified as a root cause  of conflict from individual, hand to hand battles to nation versus nation in combat of war.

The Paradox: Competition advances humankind at the cost of ceaseless conflict

Conclusion:

To eradicate conflict is to eradicate competition derived by eliminating the need/want to be self-identifiable, an inherent quality of humankind.

The ultimate conclusion:

          Conflict is an inherent component of Humankind and will Never be eradicated out of                           the need to be self-identified either as individual and/or group.

The Right to Breath

Right to Breath

Banking of Nature: An insightful and somewhat disturbing look at current financialization of earthly resources that opens the environment to speculative machinations of Wall Street with its dire reputation for the loss of trillions of dollars worth of wealth by the crash of 2008, the impact of which is still being dealt with and, now this greed machine is targeting the natural resources on which to bet.  

Watch this documentary presented by the Passionate Eye:

http://www.cbc.ca/passionateeye/episodes/banking-nature

to which I felt the need to express my distraught via the following poem:
Right To Breath

Financial machinations of white shirts and ties
Entombed in glittering glass and concrete towers
While outside, increasingly, the monetized world dies
Succumbing to insatiable greed of stolen global power

Nations stripped of resources for short-sighted economic gain
Common Peoples’ lives measurably deemed expendable
When barren, deforested land for them is all that remains
A reality scourge that is inhumane and incomprehensible

Irrational reasoning of so-called wise and learned men
Around boardroom tables devise, scheme and plot;
Their foolishness of folly questionably there to defend
When all that motivates is growth of their riches sought

Stock market speculation of all future life here on Earth
Already an experienced, proven destructive ending course
Will lead to all that is living being given its economic worth
A time when the `right to breath’ will be a financial source

REALITY: A Rear View Reflection?


What is Reality? Most of us take ‘reality’ for granted that is, to take the view (no pun intended) that it is what is before us, that what we see, hear, smell, taste and feel. But is it?

In the field of quantum physics, physicists for generations have attempted to clarify or quantify reality in measurable, mathematically equational terms. The fundamental element to what reality is, is ENERGY. The all too familiar Einsteinian equation: E=mc2 (energy=mass x the speed of light squared). However, since the acceptance of this fundamental equation physics has advanced in its theories of reality to the realm of particles, quarks and string theory. However, even with these advances in the science, the ability to satisfactorily balance the equation to mathematically equate a formula to address all known quantum that manifests as `reality’ has not reached consensus by peer review.

So what is missing, what will it take to understand or present a clear, acceptable formula to say what comprises reality?

TIME:

Just recently it was reported that the Hadron Collider in Cern (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44629271/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/neutrinos-clocked-moving-faster-than-light-speed/#.TtkiQ1bZfT4d) a neutrino (non-charged electron) that arrived at its target faster then speed of light i.e., it traveled faster than the speed of light. In accord with scientific protocol, the test was repeated and confirmed the event.

The implication of this finding, beyond confound the general acceptance that nothing travels faster then light and, in view of the generally accepted principle: speed of light is the component to the principle equation for energy, then what implication does this have for the understanding to: what is reality?

INFORMATION:

This era of human history is clearly the Information Age and like its predecessors: the Stone-Age, the Iron-Age and the Industrial-Age, it is undoubtedly going to play a significant role in clarifying for human-kind Who and What it is and to better comprehend the Where, When and How it will evolve from the present Now toward what Time defines as a Future. Note here too, though time has been included in this statement as per the section above, its relevance is truly questionable.

So what is Information?

To anyone mildly familiar with the mechanics of how a computer does the seemingly miraculous thing it does, elementally, it is purely the sequencing of ones (1‘s) or positive charge electrons and zeros (0‘s) negatively charged electrons that in prescribed sequence are deciphered by a central process to create the desired reality; virtual reality. Note here too, time is not an essential contributor to the process. The time element is imposed into the equation by virtue of the observer to the transaction. To understand better, the virtual reality within the realm of the computer’s memory – time is unknown, it just IS, It knows nothing of the fact that is was manufactured by the processing of a specified sequence of ones and zero (positive and negative electrons) therefore, by extending this comprehension to the dimension humanity calls reality, is it not likely to be comparable?

So to answer the question: What is Information? It could be postulated that it is Consciousness,

So what is Consciousness?

Not unlike the computer with its central processor, the human and all living, organic, biological entities, is nothing more than an elaborate, mobile, biological computer with its own central processor: the Brain replete with a hardwired, communications network; the central nervous system to perform involuntary and voluntary functions that move the human body through its various capabilities. Too, not unlike the computer, these functions are identifiable on two levels: a basic operating system and application software.

The basic operating system for all living entities is its DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid). The double-helix is the program born with every living entity to direct how the biological entity will operate from conception forward through its lifespan. Inherent in DNA code translates to the what and how for the biological entity; when being not a function of time as it is commonly referred but rather, a function of cycle (not unlike the cycle of the Moon orbit the Earth and the two, orbiting the Sun).

As detailed above, the operating system routinely transmits electronic signals to perform various, essential operations keeping the biological machine `live’ (breathing, blood circulation, etc). and, responses to external, unforeseen events (example: a rise in body temperature due to an activity causing the body to sweat). Note: these functions are performed without the influence of time but are cyclical or immediate.

The second level eluded to application software; how does this manifest?

Arguably. it can be simply stated as information `learned’ or acquired. This can be classified as external information and knowledge: gained through education, interaction with others, experience, etc..

Then there is intuitive knowledge. Knowledge theorized as encoded to DNA as a function of biological evolution, passed-forward, generation to generation. This hypothesis is open to speculation and at the root to this discussion.

Firstly, accepting the principle: the brain, the human brain for this discussion, is comparable to the central processor of the computer; not unlike the computer, it reacts, processes according to minute electrical impulses on neuron synapsis’ that, by way of the nervous system, stimulate specific, physical activity. Then what about `mental’ or `cognitive’ brain activity?

The discussion now becomes more esoteric, speculative and definitely arguable as to its veracity and strength in fact.

To aid in making this part of the discussion more comprehensible, the analogy of the recent and growing computer technology service: Cloud Computing Technology will be used:

The Cloud utilizes the resources (software and information) from computers as a collective virtual computer, where the applications can run independently from particular computer or server configurations basically, floating around in a “cloud of resources” making hardware less important to know how applications work. The software run on individual computers or those of a company’s is becoming less and less essential. Add to this configuration Wi-fi technology, allows an individual user to seemingly access and extract information, for all intents and purposes, out from nowhere specific. And this is how it is hypothesized the mental and cognitive brain functions.

The Hypothesis: As do a school of fish in a body of water, humans swim in an unseen pool of cosmic electrical energy comprised of positive and negatively (ones and zeros) charged particles that, not unlike a computer central processor, can be translated into information.

The brain with its built in `wi-fi’ receiver becomes the recipient and processor of digital information offered up by the cloud of consciousness contained within the cosmic electrical ocean that envelops all living entities. It is suggested here this process is the source of such knowledge as intuition, imagination, inventiveness, etc.; information for which there is no discernable source but coming from the human brain.

There are several documented anecdote that support this possibility such as that written by Christopher M. Bache titled: The Living Classroom – Teaching and Collective Consciousness that brings into question that minds are individual, separated and isolated from one-another. Further questioning the Newtonian view that the universe is essentially dead.

Synopsis:

What has been presented here is a simplistic, hypothetical perspective of a very complex and compelling subject that affects all of humanity though, unfortunately, ignored by most.

Encumbered by antiquated, institutional theories for the topic has only served to retard the advancement of enlightened theories and limit open discourse for the inability to concretely and substantively meet the strict protocols of scientific purview thus subjugating it to the realm of pseudo-science and esoteric thinking.

That said, retrospective examination by those so inclined will undoubtedly find several opportunity from past experiences of serendipity, synchronicity, coincidence or even precognition to question whether that contended to be Reality is not unlike looking in a rear-view mirror whereby that being realized has already happened and it is just in the NOW realized by five limited senses of awareness.

Avoidance


DEM

Need a gun be put to the preverbal head in order that explicit, unflattering words be read rather then the benign gibberish the vast populace is regularly fed, void of reality’s truth to dread, instead?

Daily experience to the confluence of war, death and starvation suffered; instigated by the hands of the pompous, self-aggrandizing wealth seeking whom selfishly hoard their greed-got possessions, vulgar demarcation to their worldly worth in the face of those upon whom they wilfully tread and stomp for gain.

The exposé by word that speaks as harbinger to ills and ailments is frowned upon; given to voidance to the reality to the darkness encompassing this epoch of human presence sublimed by the vast encroachment of material, fiat gained wants superseding true reason for humanity’s earthly existence.
