Lambs in Vengeance Suckle at the Teats of Irony.

Dog Poet Transmitting........

“The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that you will not come back when you go out the door without them.” My dog was pushed out of a car in Italy and abandoned. I took him in and have noticed this was assuredly his greatest fear.

The more things don't change, the more they remain the same. It's freakish indeed, the way the Israeli trained police Morlocks are carrying on these days. The brutality meter has red-lined. Events like the following are happening in multiples every single day. Meanwhile in Make believe La La Land, hope and change have reached the level of the sheer ridiculous and bizarre media manipulated religions, are bombing the planet with false narratives, brought to you by the authors of the Armenian, Russian and Ukrainian massacres; not to mention also being the authors of every Middle Eastern genocidal war in recent decades.The irony! The irony! Ah... the lambs of vengeance suckle at the teats of irony.

In concert with everything else that is going on, the wealthy are in desperate need of ever greater and greater handouts. Then, in the latest horrific monstrosity, crypto-Zios are killing without conscience and don't give a damn what anyone thinks.

“Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright” uh... no... not hardly. How it all teeters on the edge. Observe the high tension spectacle of a runaway gyroscope, spinning, leaning and veering on the precipice of the lip of a smoking abyss. If I didn't know better and there are times when I come to doubt that, the general picture is not pretty by any stretch. Down at the bottom, the mass of humanity writhes in torment, while far above them, the privileged and well to do, preen and prance in the funhouse mirrors of reflected hallucination. They are drawn in fragile carriages by the two horses of vanity and greed. They see but they don't see. They know but they don't know. They are but they are not. They are all having sex with Schrodinger's Cat and each other, of course. It is a riotous bacchanal that looks like the moving wall behind Al Pacino in The Devil's Advocate.

We scrolled down the pages of several alternative news sites this morning and it was dark and dreary, much like that evening when the raven came to visit Poe. I'm looking for bright spots shining through the cumulo-nimbus thunderheads but there is not a great deal of that; not today anyway. Some of the Blackwater murderers got a whole lot of time in prison. Looks like someone dropped the ball or the whole thing was so egregious that they had no choice. Elsewhere a judge ruled that a three year old girl played a part in her rape. Things like this are so very, very far beyond the boundaries of normal that even Mr. Psychotic and Madame Neurotic are crying, “Uncle! Uncle!”

I often sit back, stand back, or lie in bed, wondering about it all. An endless freight train goes whistling down the long grade, bearing millions of images and sound bytes. The noise of the ensuing confusion is deafening. I retreat behind, below and above the swirling chaos. There is peace and tranquility to be found, even if it can seldom be shared. These are not high density population zones.

Marx started a whole lot of dangerous nonsense; courtesy of Rothschild. Then Max Weber came along and it can't be denied that either of them said a few things that came across as true. Around the same time there came Georg Simmel. He said that the decisive force in people's lives is, “the power and rhythm of emotion.” This explains the intense industry of the manipulation of the same, in present time. In this time, people treat things and each other as commercial items. Their lives are built around making money.

Simmel makes a great point about the cities. He says it is the most concentrated locale of the money economy and it is here, above all, that mental life becomes essentially intellectualistic ( I don't think that is actually a word). Regimentation is the soul of the city and he goes on to say that the dwellers of Berlin and Strasbourg were required to tame their passions in favor of a punishing exactness.

In the tug and twist of existence, people come to look at others for their usefulness to them. We become commodities to each other in this time of soulless materialism, people are treated with “formality and an unrelenting hardness.” The major fruit of the whole affair is cynicism and a weary cynicism at that. This is how we came by words and terms like, ennui, weltschmerz and ca m'est egal. There are plenty of words to describe it all and precious few who pay attention to them. Simmel also says, there are “special nurseries for money.” He continues; “the more that money becomes the sole center of interest, the more one discovers that honor and conviction, talent and virtue, beauty and salvation of the soul are exchanged against money, the more mocking and frivolous attitude will develop in relation to these higher values that are for sale for the same kind of value as groceries and that also commands a 'market price.' “Cynicism is the subjective expression of a market place for values.”

“The growth of the blasé attitude produces a paradoxical result- a culture of sensation.” “So emerges the modern individual, a role player who is also a part time adventurer and stimulus seeker, trying frenetically to find himself by abandoning himself. This paradoxical creature is primed for unlimited media.”

Money twists the fabric of reality and the irony with that is that there is no reality per se. There is only the various depths and densities of of the dream weave. However much one is committed to that, to that degree one is submerged in it. There is reality, of course, it exists in the minds of those who possess it. They are a quiet and retiring sort. You might call them painfully shy. They have their reasons. They don't speak very often and in times like these, less than in other times. Sometimes they do speak when used as channels, or vehicles for the delivery of ageless wisdom. These vehicles are not always perfect because those chosen for the job are not always those with the highest moral character. That doesn't fit in with the tendency of the cosmos to use fools and madmen; possibly because the cosmos has a sense of humor. One would imagine that that must be true. I think there is a higher octave of humor that cannot be understood here because it is so incredibly outrageous. Then there is the humor of the infernal, which is seemingly triumphant at this time and whose dark, scatological and cynical nature is apparent. If it's not apparent then you are caught up in it and it has grafted its perspective upon your mind and often tattooed it on your behind as well.

Life is precious but if this idea is allowed to become a more universal understanding it gets in the way of business. Business suddenly becomes constrained by a moral climate that hinders what is called... heh hen, 'free enterprise'. Everything that is going on is par for the course. It is an exact expression of the general mental state of awareness that one must strive AGAINST their fellows in order to succeed. It doesn't even matter what happens to the other guy as long as you prevail. In many places, up there in the dizzying atmosphere of corporate hi-jinks, they laugh about what they did to the other guy. They congratulate each other and celebrate their business acumen and savvy. It is so distorted now that wrong has become the greater right and whatever was right once, is now looked upon as weakness and aberrant. So it has come to be. Let's face it. It cannot go on like this much longer. It looks like this is the year of fantastic change and, of course, it comes in an election year. Oh the ideas and things they must be thinking of on high, given what we are already seeing and given the links provided earlier.

Where do we go from here? I can think of nothing better than to quote the great mystic Lao Tzu. “Why go outside for better seeing? Rather abide at the core of your being. The way to do is to be.”

It figures that someone would see that, mere moments prior to my fixing it. There are always errors no matter how carefully I proof read and so I don't see them until I read it posted.

Yeah... I kind of know what that's like.

I first noticed this back in the seventies, when "baaad" was good and being "good" was something to ridicule. The trend keeps reaching new depths. We hope the end of this age is here.

We keep coming back here, in part, to find the reassurance in your words. Thanks.

Vis: "It is an exact expression of the general mental state of awareness that one must strive AGAINST their fellows in order to succeed."

I have noticed this aspect being pushed ever since the spiritual base of the 60s began to have an impact. Kind of a counter-revolution. Remember 'yuppie scum'?

I may be becoming more sensitive to this aspect, but it seems to me that there has been a real ramp-up in this 'programming' over the last decade or two. It is all-pervasive. Younger folks who were never affected by the 'aura' of those times must be terribly at risk...

Best Wishes,

Yes.

Sadness.
(And impetus for readiness)


The Prophecy of St. Nilus, who lived around 400 AD:

"After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognizable. When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, people's minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable. People's appearances will change... These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right-hand way from the left. At that time the morals and traditions of Christians and of the Church will change. People will abandon modesty, and dissipation will reign. Falsehood and greed will attain great proportions, and woe to those who pile up treasures. Lust, adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds and murder will rule in society.

"At that future time, due to the power of such great crimes and licentiousness, people will be deprived of the grace of the Holy Spirit....
..Then they will separate themselves out of the world in holy refuges in search of lightening their spiritual sufferings, but everywhere they will meet obstacles and constraints. And all this will result from the fact that the Antichrist wants to be Lord over everything and become the ruler of the whole universe, and he will produce miracles and fantastic signs. ...

Although reading catholic prophecy, (especially when in a substance-induced altered state-) can be a great way to bring on paranoia, ;-) Here is a message from a seer in ireland
with a slightly different thrust, that reflects comments i have read here and elsewhere of late, from a variety of cultural\spiritual paths:



July 5, 2004
St. Therese, the Little Flower.

Jesus, in His merciful goodness, has willed that many saints in heaven will come to the assistance of souls on earth. Dear holy souls, you are approaching difficult days. You know this, of course, if the Spirit is active within you. Your world is in darkness and must be cleansed.
All of this has been said.
The time of darkness nears...Souls cling rebelliously to sinful ways and do not even fear God’s justice. They have embraced evil.
Brothers and sisters, this world is no longer an appropriate place for God’s children.
It is neither safe nor conducive to the school of holiness that each soul must attend to graduate to heaven. Little souls cannot do this here in your world because they are surrounded, literally, by the opposite of holiness.

What I am trying to convey to you is that your world has begun to co-exist with sin in such a way that few object anymore. You are asleep, children of the world!...
You will find yourself struggling with temptations against your missions. You
will find yourself mocked. The world is going to go even further in the direction of anti-God and you will stand out even more starkly against the Godless landscape. This will not be comfortable for you but you will have complete heavenly assistance and support. Brothers and sisters, I, Therese, am only one of countless saints who has been commissioned to assist you. You will find us always near and always willing to instruct and console. We will petition the Spirit and obtain the most sublime gifts of wisdom and discernment for you. My dear fellow servants, we are entering the storm, but not without Jesus, our rudder. ...

I found this post to be excellent and hilarious, Mr. Visible. Thanks for the laughs :)

Be well, All.

Ultimately, myths create philosophical views/notions/ideas. In order to remake the world you have to remake the myths that create the world.

In the modern epoch the individual has been left to create their own philosophy. It is of course not accidental that this is so.

What this means is that the creation of personal philosophical ideas must be formed, extracted more correctly, from the Etho's of Modern Mythological Themes.


The creation of modern mythological themes come out from the corpro-fascistia talisman and their stooge mouthpieces.

The aware will notice that the creation of the necessary myths are feed, spoon to mouth, thence repeated over and over until the lie becomes the truth, and these lies become the mythological motifs upon which the people act.
For a myth to be alive it must be considered the truth.

This is what myths do, they form the foundations for personal philosophical beliefs. They are and have been the basis of civilization from the earliest times.

Most individuals of the modern epoch operate with a hodgepodge of mythological ideas that comprise a self arranged/invented philosophical system.

The myths are feed to the individual via the corpo-industrial fascista, hence the creation of false myths create false realities where in people can be lead to .

Dear Les,

I had a moment the other day when your words suddenly became so very clear to me. I was watching the campaign video by Hillary, where she says something to the effect of "working Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion." In that moment, I realized that this all really IS a movie, and it's a comedy at that!

I laughed and laughed and laughed until I almost got sick, twice. I was still howling 45 minutes later. I'm still chuckling as I think about it two days later; Hillary Clinton, champion of the working man! Oh my, that's some good comedy there.

Anon @ 3:36 p.m. I never looked at myths that way before so thanks for the "aha." What you wrote got me thinking about today's current sexual myths and how degradation and predation are fast becoming the norm. Love and responsibility are mostly removed. It's all like bad biology. And you say that individuals are "left to create their own philosophy," and, "that the creation of personal philosophical ideas must be formed, extracted more correctly, from the Ethos of Modern Mythological Themes." I like this, yet wonder how we empower the programmed, especially the young, to create that which serves their freedom and their spiritual integrity. In simpler terms, the ways of the world are so pervasive, even forceful, and this is a difficult energy to overcome. So in this moment I'm glancing at my kids and grand-kids and thinking all I can do is impart my values/beliefs. I wonder though, what else can be done to counter the corruption. Some say the sex ed is all about satisfying pedos and promoting debauchery. In college, questionnaires are handed out that request the students' sexual history and with other extremely invasive questions. Most of the questions are actually programming in disguise. It gets worse; get a load of this from a few years back:

How much further have we gone since this video was made? How frivolously our lives are examined and dissected.

Back to myths. . . I'm wondering if there's a way to infuse them with a sense of adventure while not abandoning decency? How to reach/experience intimacy while connecting with universality? And is it all subjective? Mostly wondering how to avoid exploitation and come out intact. What is our responsibility to myth? 

Just some stirrings.
