Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Powerful Thoughts

Just before Christmas I wrote about force, that force is the basic physical ingredient of the physical universe. I also think that thought is the basic ingredient of the spiritual. For thought to manifest itself, for it to make itself real, all it needs to do is manipulate force and the thought is manifested into physical reality.

How does this work? I wish I knew. That part hasn’t come to me yet. But two things are undeniable – that thought comes before any action is manifested and that all matter and all energy represent some form of thought, some form of reason, some reason for existence.

Putting that second assumption another way, all physical matter and all energy consist of thought, of code that represents its reasons for existence. Matter and energy are coded reason, physical memory that not just stores but consists of its own reason for existing.

Virtually any description of the higher self, of higher consciousness, describes these truths. Matter and energy speak directly to and with our higher self in a complex, timeless, infinite realm of reason visible to our inner eye. This is spiritual vision.

Force

It’s taken me long enough but I think I’ve finally hit on my philosophy of life, of how to figure out how to live my life from this point forward – how to figure out things as time goes on. With any luck, time for me will still go on for quite awhile longer but I leave that fate to the angels. They seem to know a lot better than I do about that subject.

But what I have just concluded is that the universe, every bit of it physically is made of force. I know that’s a pretty tall claim but I just don’t see how it can be any other way. But that’s not the totality of my realization. I’ve actually suspected the force composition idea for decades, have even written about it before.

But that’s the physical part of the universe. The spiritual part is thought, the act of thinking, which so incredibly easily manipulates to animate force to become real. Reality creates itself by thinking itself into the physical, controlling the physical through force, through actual physical force.

So that being said, I have realized now that I have control of my life. I can only share my thoughts with the rest of reality but when it comes to the thoughts that create me, I have control of that – actually whether I want it that way or not.

I do.

My first act - leave it to me, Bill, the base male animal that he is in reality – is to declare myself independent of the side of me that wants woman for sex. I give up. I’m too old for that, ladies, and I never was interested in you, guys… not when it comes to sex.

My deepest apologies to any lady whose hopes are shattered, but my fondest gratitude to any woman who has been so generous as to share of herself with me.

Now to sweep out the toys.

Well first to finish sweeping out the hard drive, disinfect it and then get the frags out. I’ll post after I’m hooked back up.

Ah, time has passed as it always seems to do. The hard drive is clean, defragged, and I’m back online. Time to upload! Slap it up and pin it on the wall. Wish me luck!

Oh and to the ladies I’ve flirted with any time recently, men are all dogs. That we know. We men are all George Clooneys. But if I ever get out of line, just spank me, Mama, before you do anything else.

Climate Fiascoes

I haven't had much to say recently about Global Warming, Climate Change, Anthropological Climate Change, or whatever else you wish to call  it. Awhile back I did comment on JoNova's "Skeptic's Handbook" but I haven't followed up on that thread since. Now there are "Climategate" and the Copenhagen climate talks to add to the mix.

It's getting harder and harder to take Global Warming seriously. On the one hand there are scientists so set in their ways, so convinced of their mastery of the subject that they won't belittle themselves by engaging the deniers in debate. On the other hand you have the deniers so set in their ways, so convinced of their mastery of the subject that they won't belittle themselves by engaging the Global Warming advocates in debate. By debate, I mean a point by point open-minded discussion of the related issues such as whether there is reduction or increase in polar ice, whether the oceans are on average warming or cooling, whether the high-mountain glaciers are growing or receding, whether the sun is in a warm cycle or a cold cycle, whether Global Warming scientists as well as deniers are fudging their proofs, the list goes on and on. There doesn't seem to be any honest debate going on.

In my mind the reason why this debate seems more political than scientific is because the debate is political. It isn't science-based even though it purports to be so. Both sides of the debate have ulterior motives that really aren't being expressed.

People who have long been concerned about air pollution, runaway commercial consumerism, depletion of the earth's nonrenewable energy resources, and imperial wars over those resources have openly and warmly embraced Global Warming theory as the "gotcha!" moment in the debate. Here finally is proof that all the warnings about mindless consumerism will prove right.

On the other hand, Global Warming can't be right. There's no real evidence that the majority of people here on earth have in any way been impacted negatively by consumerism and even if there were to be such evidence, we can't afford to change. It would bankrupt the world's strongest economies. And to boot, it would mean that all the many ways we have found to use energy resources to further our comfort and pleasure as well as our recreation would have to go. We simply can't afford to do that right now so Global Warming has to be a farce.

So until and unless we as a world start taking this a little more seriously and start debating the real issues, it's hard for me to take anything about this seriously. That doesn't mean I don't think we need to conserve energy or develop cleaner renewable resources. I'm all for that. But I'm not about to support world socialism in order to maintain American/European/Asian commercial consumerism. Commercial consumerism will die of it's own suffocating weight. Its death doesn't need to be forced down our throats by power and wealth-hungry socialists.
