The Master Board / Re: The first rule of book club is...

The first rule of book club is do not talk about the book club
I expected to hear that in the post :<
Hail Hat!
Im a new poster here too. Two months I think, I don't know time is weird here. Other than common courtesy I haven't noticed any other rules.
To each his own I would say.
I have two metaphors I live by here at the moment.

1. When I jump out of the plane(post), be sure to remove my parachute first.

2. When I navigate the threads I keep the weight on the balls of my feet, knees slighty bent,
upper body upright, and remember to breath.

Some of your posts lately have been quite intellectually stimulating.   Please tell me, do you use khufu breathing, fire breathing, holothropic breathing or is it another method that you use before you post?

This inquisitive padawan would love to know...

Who needs parachutes?

There is only one way to breath and many misunderstandings of it.

When I was a child... I had my 40th birthday. I remember thinking I should start to act like an adult. I sold a motorcycle and bought a car. I bought adult clothes designed for success. I let reason and intelligence be my guide.
Later I realized that it wasn't working for me so I dumped the posing. I lost some of my new 'friends', (some were quite attractive) but realized I didn't like being around them much anyway.
A was also reminded that 'If it's not broke, don't fix it'. I'd like to say that that adage was a lesson learned but Im still learning it. For me that rabbit hole runs way deep.
A friend here posted a Darth Vader vid with me in mind. I had not forgotten to address it and say thanks, I was just waiting for the right time.
Vader and Skyrim's Paarthurnax are powerful archetypes for me.
Vader's (Anakin's) fall was lamented by our man Obi Wan because Anakin was the 'chosen one', the one who was to bring balance (baal-lance?)(baal-ants?) to the force(Source). The consequence of that fall we see in the 'prequel' films. In the end it wasn't Vaders Dark Lord who redeemed him, it was his child (Luke's) faith in him. That never faltered, it was a faith that had no intelligence or reason but just was.
I wondered too, about what the balance of light and darkness meant. I dismissed the concept of 'means justifying the end' that some hold so I was kinda stuck.
Nicks persistent hint that Hegel's dialectic was misunderstood was were I found a clue. Looking at the dialect from a positive viewpoint clarified many things for me. One was that the dark-light thesis antithesis could result in a synthesis which is far more than it's 'con'stituant parts. So much more so that It makes light and darkness nearly irrelevant. I have my neck out here a little because I haven't digested this fully but I think it's close.

The day I saw 'Return of the Jedi' I visited a mentor. He wasn't there but his young daughter was. I asked her if she has seen the movie and she had. We talked about it for a while and I joked (half-joked) that if there was hope for Darth Vader, there was hope for me.
She said, "Yes, all you have to do is take off your mask." You could have knocked me over with a feather.

Paarthurnax too was saved (spared) by a child. Dovahkin can mean child of the dragons. You players spared Paarthurnax right? Say what?
It occurs to me at this moment that Anakin and Dovahkin sound closely related. But Ive already been too long winded.

Do you often stop running a meter from the finish line?
Thanks Coach, sometimes I still need a kick in the pants.

we all do, Cooperation is the most selfish act one can engage in.

I doubt any of you would expect this reference from me. But this is deeply applicable.

Lovely (and appropriately applicable) song.  You are well versed in a variety of subjects so none of your references surprise me anymore.

Was Jonathon Larson a sacrifice?

He was a self sacrifice. Its no coincidence he died the nightbefore his show opened.

He literally poured his soul into that production.

Read his interviews and he dropped clues.

Than of course theres this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hloIgAU6I0o

Truly thank you all for the well wishes today.

This is a weird year for me and having this sanctuary on a daily basis has been a tremendous source of comfort and necessary distraction.

There is not one of you I dont love in a highly individualized way and you have all brought so much to this place, I am often cowed by the level of discourse and more importantly the lack of comepetitive egos in this forum of alphas.

We will never be the biggest place on the net, but member for member Id put us against anyone.

How can I use this last key to make chicks like me more? Im doing alright at the moment but there's this waitress down the road who sure is a tough nut to crack.

Read The Natural by Richard La Ruina.


I shall do that, it feels right. I sense you do alright with women, G = G. The chips are down, but fear not readers... I will woo that hypergamous little psy-vamp yet.

Cheat sheet, ask questions (interested is interesting)

NEVER give her a physical compliment (thats like a girl saying hey nice bank account)

Once shes on the hook, withdraw, attention if not physically. Women want to feel like their amazingness earned your attention, if its easy youre done


Message me for more

Some of you will resist this. Really think about why im posting this.

Weve all heard "if a guy beds many women hes a stud, if a women sleeps with many man shes a slut, what a double standard etc.."

No gender is above having a utility in this world.

If a key opens many locks, it is a master key.

If a lock is opened by many keys, its a terrible lock.

I feel this relates back to the idea of a pickup artist whose understanding of female programming enables him to "pick her lock" so to speak. The unlocking of our own consciousness beyond the veil requires similar understanding?

Everything is a matter of stimuli ,response

The Spiritual Nature of Hair

Long ago people in many cultures didn’t cut their hair, because it was a part of who they were. There were no salons. Often, when people were conquered or enslaved, their hair was cut as a recognized sign of slavery. It was also understood that this would serve as punishment and decrease the power of those enslaved.

The bones in the forehead are porous and function to transmit light to the pineal gland, which affects brain activity, as well as thyroid and sexual hormones. Cutting bangs which cover the forehead impedes this process.

“Hair Is An Extension Of The Nervous System” – Why Native Americans Keep Their Hair Long


There is some interesting information out there about hair and the role it plays in intuition and the nervous system.

https://www.davidwolfe.com/hair-is-an-extension-of-the-nervous-system-native-americans-keep-hair-long/


I take it that's the real reason why they leave you practically bald when you go into the military.

So should we just not cut our hair and treat it the longer it gets?
In the bible apparnetly it is said that a man who has long hair is sinful. Do they phrase it as such because they just dont want you to have your natural "hair power"?

1 Corinthians 11:14 ESV
"Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair it is a disgrace for him,"

Or is this another "double standard" like the concept that men can engage in coitus all they want yet women can not?

Also im not sure if this is the correct guy in the bible but I do remember hearing about a man who got all his strength, or at least most of it
from his really long braided hair.

Pretty interesting nonetheless . . .


New testament? Lol

When I was a child... I had a recurring nightmare of sliding down a loose gravel slope and falling into a deep still pond. The harder I would struggle, the deeper I sank. As I died I woke up.
One time I stopped struggling and woke up.
Some time later the dream recurred and I didn't struggle at all. I immediately woke up.
The dream never happened again.

When I was a child... my father took me to place very few men were allowed to go. And even then, allowed only for very good reason. There were eight beasts created my the ambitions of man, massively armed for war with the power of suns. We went into the belly of one and sat. It was very still and quiet, like an empty church full mystical geometry or like sneaking into the stomach of a sleeping dragon.
I was nine years old. Old enough to know about duty and honor and what my father risked by bringing me there. Yet not a word was spoken. We sat for a long time.
When we left there was a wink and nod by heavily armed security.
After that I knew that the gods of destruction were content in rest. Yet, if roused were indiscrimate as to light and darkness, purpose, or reason.

When I was a child...my hero was (after my father) Zorro. I didn't realize why until many years later. It was because he was so good at fighting that he never had to hurt the minions and pawns. They just tripped and fell over one another. He left the serious (sincere) fight for the boss.

When I was a child...A baseball was my only holy relic. My divine totems later were the m1911 and the female form. I mastered the 1911, and I told myself I mastered the female but in truth I was/am only a beggar. I still hold the baseball holy, yet now I only see the past in its depths. Alas.

Today a friend returned from a trip to 'Stonehenge' (the one on earth) and she took me out to a pizza bar. Yes, I had one or two(or three) slices with pineapple to go with the others. We were talking about our childhood and it got me thinking of things that happened when I was young which didn't seem all that important at the time. Admittedly my childhood was weird but I suspect that's true of many who lurk or post here.

Was the place your father took you in europe or south america?
Let me answer specifically and broadly in order to inform and reduce speculation.
My father worked all over, but this was in California. One of 'THOSE' security clearances is in play here. He has passed. He kept his secrets, his honor, and his humanity.
 As a Magician you understand that certain things must be kept compartmentalized. Secrecy(discretion) is not only a veil for thieves and murderers it is a also a tool for protection and plays a part in nurture. There are no secrets as to the essentials of what is going on though, by 'law or protocol' the victim must be told by the predator was is 'going' to happen, and then what 'is' happening. Free will and discernment is prime. The mocking of the voluntary victim afterward is optional.
Rules apply to the good guys too, again free will is king, but adults dont' give car keys or to young children, even nice children who adults hope will eventually learn to drive. Those gates of adulthood are not opened by the adults, but by the children. You know I explain the obvious here for others who may not know.
While on the subject of clearances the DoD/DOE sensitive compartmentalized clearance is mearly a top secret clearance for specific areas. 1.5 million americans have TS clearance. 'Q' was initiated by the Atomic Energy Commision for personell who work with/near atomics and may have need to access both military and civilian areas. Still very compartmentalized. No one person knows much.
Some rescue teams have blanket clearances because they might be called upon to deal with emergencys ranging from civilian contractors, to nasa assets.
I'm constantly surprised at what people know here. Things I had no clue about. And sometimes Im surprised that people don't know what I know. Yet we each seem to know (be learning) what we need to for our own life. I don't think there is a holy grail of knowlege for all, probably because we are to some extent, each creating our own reality.
Lot's of strange birds here, I love it.

Only one bird here friend. Its taken in so much carbon monoxide it forgets what it is and creates different identities to react to different stimuli, sometimes a songbird,sometimes a raptor, but always a singular entity.
