good morning team. just wanted to say thanks ahead of time, and that i think it has to do with ssl matching, javascript hooligan and some other thing.

sincerely thanks and good morning.

look forward to this working, i have a lot of plans for this . yay!

  1. Number one trait I value in people and myself is the burning love for truth. That translates to me as: people who are in a constant look to understand the truth of their own nature, the truth of reality, the truth of life itself. People who value truth almost more than anything else. That further translates as people who bravely use the tool of self honesty – with all the work that goes with that – and sort of making it their religion.

  2. Second trait I love to encounter in others is intelligence – which for me translates as: playfulness, humour and a constant curiosity and openness towards life. Later these traits usually expand in inventiveness, memory, pattern matching, etc.

  3. A third trait, but as equally valuable to me as the first two is self work. Self work translates for me as the capacity of going inward with brave sincerity (trait #2) in order to understand the truth of oneself (trait #1). Read in words this might even sound simple or blunt, but I know what this really means when I find the genuine version of this trait in someone.

  4. Self bravery – the ability to be able to withstand seeing the truth of oneself with such bravery that one is capable of seeing and entertaining the truths of all others as well. That for me translates into the genuine action of healing – others and the environment around.

  5. I think that if the four above traits are genuinely present, I might already interact with a super god, so I am content to stop here, and let other traits surprise me :)

I missed the bus, there should be another one along soon.

I've got a few minutes, I'll read my book to while away the time.

Then it struck me, I was at the train station. Maybe I should write a book.

Really I don't like the idea of being “bossy.” What's really going on is either something here, or a similar illusion unfit for my intended conveyance. I'm not trying to be.

Most days, because I'm single and live with my cat, who is extremely mellow but still asserts her personal space by immediately walking away the instant I bend all the way down and assemble myself on the floor- So, I find myself with a lot of time to solve puzzles, or do new things that interest me, or help people with things that interest them they are stuck on or simply want help with.

That's really rewarding, because solving their puzzles enables them to help a lot of people.

The whole point I think of my existence is two fold, to enjoy myself and do no harm, and to help other people with the seemingly to me anyway its just “some interested guy that never stopped reading once he learned how, and never stopped asking people about themselves to listen to their stories once he learned how to talk to them without being either overbearing by accident, or weird somehow.

Occasionally, I'm still weird, but I usually catch it, and make fun of how hard it is to find the correct way to relate to someone, unless you know them really well- which is entirely true and accounts for at least half of all known public conversational fatalities.

I'm really interested in figuring something out, and dreaming rather loudly.

Occasionally, I may sound like I'm trying to be smart, but really I am just pushing myself , seeing if I can assemble big words in ways that convey meaning and assemble complex systems or thought patterns or re-route an existing problem entirely new-ly. This kind of stuff, to me- is very exciting.

If I was not single, I am certain I would be busily solving some more horizontally oriented, spiritual puzzles, but there is an open space in my life for someone who also lives without a personal bar of standards, and is relentlessly committed ..

to a life that she understands continually evolves in its terrain and semblance, but also the self continually evolves and finds new perspective and experiential shifts also from release and growth, shedding patterns that were “very familiar” when one first met” may be scary to some, but I'm not looking for that kind of woman-

I'm looking for the kind of woman that unless I'm clearly waving my hands asking for help dying or someone literally set me on fire, she assumes we are having a good time and that,

  • anything could happen between this sun and the next one
  • life is going to be made interesting today by will, choice, emotion, imagination, consideration for self and others, and action. usually a simple one, just to start a thing, but sometimes more or an entire process! whee!
  • she assumes sometimes i may have a bad day, but that i will never blame my misunderstanding of a situation in the world or of myself, or of my ability to understand the ** meaning ** she is speaking or acting out or otherwise posturing with other modes of conveyance – > that she assumes I will never place any weight from one of these things on her in a blame posturing. ** that's waging an emotional assault. **
  • she assumes that if i am actually bothered by something I'll simply ask about it, or vice versa.
  • in general in life, if it's something that feels bad, its probably bad. leave it alone.
  • she understands there is no absolute truth, only relative perspective, emotion, etc . . a nebulous soup that changes nearly incalculably at every infinitisimal space between every one of your man made “seconds” meaning its an agreed upon unit based on other highly sensible ways to measure stuff, but in the interest of my life partner, i want her to be able to have a discussion if it happens where she can entirely suspend or selectively suspend logic or something and run simulations with me of various outcomes, and bounce all that around.
  • i am forgetting more than several somethings.

is there a word for this kind of woman? LOL , oh and there probably aren't very many of them, (and note this post is not a personal ad, its just me being truthful at apparently oh wow 3:35 am.) Hi ! but i dont wear a watch, so that just means its generally quieter right now than earlier, whatever “earlier” is.

it really doesn't mean anything, the rigid framework of all that drops away the first time you experience a psychedelic drug. for me, that was about two weeks before christmas, in 2004. ** all hail the mushroom king. ** okay i dont worship anything, but the mushroom is pretty cool, but i still don't venerate or prostrate myself to it. I do that for no man, but then again I'm pretty big into personal respect. Not personal space or personal boundaries, but inter-personal respect. Just don't be a dick.

How hard is that really? I have two rules for you if you want to interact with me: in life. haha. seriously, here they are.

  • rule one- dont be a dick.
  • rule two- please make it interesting. (ie put some passion+emotion into it). otherwise, wait until you do.
    does that mean i have three rules? okay i just looked and that makes a lot more sense. just follow these three rules:

* rule one- dont be a dick. * rule two- please make it interesting. (passion+emotion+energy) * rule three- whatever it is, if you're unsure- wait.

but send people that are exemplary female mavericks my email address if they want to talk in a respectful and friendly manner with a gentleman that has been told by women that he has a nice radio voice, and in the early 2000s was told he looked like “adam levine from maroon 5” but i looked the guy up and i am biased but believe i am a twisp more handsome than that fairly nice looking fellow.

Oh, and about sexuality, thats another thing Id love about her- for her to operatively allow people to be themselves and run a perpetual non interference policy unless they ask for her help and it appears wise to her to help them.

[editors note: while this has absolutely nothing to do with the prompt, it's a well written piece ! and within the spirit of the blog, it “fits” because the amount of effort that went IN far exceeds any mis-match in having not “answered my question,” which was silly anyway.

So, she wins the exercise for herself (and its not a competition with anyone so there was nobody else playing locally in her holosphere.local.near.field (fancy words for nobody else was making an entry right there)– but also none of this is important,

they're just different ways to say something basic i can show you with my finger if i am in the same room without saying a single word or even uttering a single damn sound.. that should give you pause to consider how irrelevant and extra, and perhaps ? ;) un-natural the advent of spoken and written language is. in an evolutionary utility sense only when using survival as the baseline metric all else is extra.

I don't know. Just interesting to ponder...

The ** real ** point of all this, is teaching you to flex your electro-magnetic / if you just want to be simple about it- I'm working slowly to inspire you to get off your ass and live again, among a bunch of other stuff for you to enjoy doing that may otherwise not exist in a recognizable form or at all in the world we're headed for- unless you fucking pay attention to people like myself and consider that perhaps, perhaps- it's not that we are against the established world, or hate this or that- it's that we collectively- as this group of people who appear dis-satisified with the world, are simply trying to create an environment they enjoy and want to live in.

I do this thing a lot, when trying to understand something. This is the first time the analogy has gone in reverse, but if you understand the relationship mapping with what I do this for then you see may see it already.

I call it the cave simulation. If something seems out of place, I imagine it existing inside or nearby a cave. The only other variables that exist are me the cave, maybe a pet, maybe another person, and a fire pit, and some indication that it's safe to be there and I reside there, or at least have safe use of it. If the thing doesn't fit into a contextual reality with the cave analogy, it has one of three meanings depending on what kind of logical examination you're setting up- it either shouldn't exist and is egregiously dangerous and unnatural with consequences of some sort to utilize the thing. OR- it has a function in the modern world that isn't understood, or contextually relevant to “cave life,” and therefore its automatically classified as “extra,” and filtered out of existence and can safely be ignored if for whatever reason I don't like it, or feel it's an added and un-needed level of complexity. But- if it's neat, and I think perhaps it can be used to bridge new frontiers to either taking the damn thing apart and making its parts do new things (really i just saw a new widget i want and dont know how to create or buy them yet)– and thus instead i will make a more important point and leave the other one dangling, – the whole wide world has all these opportunities to trade your currency for more and more widgets.

here's a hint: the widget farm does not stop making widgets. ;)

okay, so Denisa wrote all this nice stuff, and I'm going to stop flapping my fingers now.

Benefits of sleeping outside

Since I started listening to my body I've made quite a lot of new discoveries. Life started to feel fun once again. Last august life just showed me one of the best soups I ever eaten: a mix between boiled and fresh ingredients, served hot :) It became a favourite of mine and mother still mentions it to this day. Last December my body showed me sleeping on the floor, and such a new universe opened up for me.. dream and health wise. Now my body showed me sleeping outside, and truly I am amazed of how I feel.

I have almost 2 weeks of sleeping out in the open air now. Zero tent or anything. Just a pillow and a fluffy wool blanket, on an improvised wooden deck and that's it. And I feel much different. In my sleep and in my day. My mind feels different. I could say a new sense of calmness but also a new sense of trust and stability. My body feels alive, happy and rejuvenated.

It might be for many reasons.

  1. First the air outside is highly oxygenated, packed with negative ions from all the surrounding nature. During night time the air is cleaner and slightly breezier so the brain gets oxygenated properly. And I feel there is more to this. A sort of electro magnetic recharge that happens by breathing in this fresh air while sleeping.

  2. Then it might be because of the natural sounds that I hear while sleeping. Crickets, trees and leafs moving above, dogs barking sometimes.. and birds chirping in the morning. Two days ago I was waken up by a bee fussing over my nose. Today I woke up by the wind gently caressing my face.

  3. It might be the natural smells that act as a sort of therapy for the brain. Especially at night the smells get intensified: the flowers from the garden, the sweetness of the grape vines near where I sleep, the smell of leafs, resins and soil. All of these smells are lacking when sleeping indoors, and I feel they bring a sort of calmness and caress to the mind while sleeping.

  4. It might be due to the natural light spectrum emitted from the atmosphere around. Even if our eyes are closed the light spectrum reaching them has a high impact on the brain while sleeping. There were several days when the moon was full and it was shining exactly on my pillow, so I slept with my head under its glow, and I love how that impacts my sleep. In the morning I am wakened up by the natural light outside, which again gives my brain a natural kick of active hormones helping me wake up naturally.

In general I feel there is an electro magnetic connection going on.. between my body, the body of the trees around, the plants, the earth, the atmosphere. I feel a sort of connection as if sleeping outside makes my body part of this network, where my body becomes an integrated piece of the environment around. And somehow I even feel the trees and elements around are taking care of me, feeling my body nurtured and protected. I feel they are so happy to be able to do this and to see a human sleeping with them. Truly I feel such an intimate indescribable connection.

  1. It might be due to the lack of concentrated electro magnetic fields that exists around a house, due to cables and devices. Even since I can remember I always had this thing where I would need to shut off all the lights in the room so i can feel I can go to sleep. I usually unplug the wifi devices, and other devices before sleeping.

These factors, and maybe more that I am not aware of, somehow changed my mood. I wake up refreshed, and the dominant feeling I feel is peace. I feel at peace with my self, my mind. The dreams also feel more integrated. I get eager when thinking I need to go to sleep again. And even now as I write this, I am outside in “bed”, and the crickets are chirping all over and they make me wanna fall asleep :)

I had a random thought – this is maybe a place holder for later :)

By Diana

I'm not that advanced at mathematics, though I'm coming to realise how important it is as a pure language. Therefore that will be my first memory of what the video was communicating.

Ancient structures have been positioned mathematically, not just on earth but in the outer realms (namely Mars) as well.

Numbers hold a certain frequency and this is evident in the sacred geometry of nature.

The positions of the sacred structures appear to be part of some sort of numerical grid.

We live in a matrix that has been constructed for reasons that are not apparent from the video, but merely suggested at.

I fell asleep for a large part of the video and would be interested to watch it again at some point.


  • editors note: Diana's submission ends above the horizontal line. I do not change anything an author writes in their submission, I may correct a simple typo if I see it, but I am in general not looking. This added section is only to enrich your experience over-all, as you may watch the video she mentioned here permanently by clicking the link below.

Watch The Code – By Carl P. Munck <— for anyone who wishes to learn and explore the video too !

If you can save a copy of it somehow, that will be best for watching because it is a long video, and because of web server things, it's just easier for you if you download it if you can but if streaming is all you got- that's okay too. ;)

Interesting reflection

I enjoy people who are straightforward and deep. If they beat about the bush and provide too much irrelevant detail I lose focus and therefore interest as I struggle to follow what they are communicating.

I love people with intelligence tempered by goodwill and humility. People who make themselves look good at the expense of others are definitely a turn off.

I like honesty in people, not the type that knows no boundaries but the type that can stimulate deeper connection and trust.

I love an adventurous spirit. Even better a person that inspires others to share adventures. An initiator, an inspiration and a 'devil may care' attitude.

I love humour, and have lost my sense of humour in my darkest times, so having people in my life who can trigger laughter is pretty important.

I love generosity. People who can share from their heart and will help others with discernment. It doesn't matter so much what they share, it is more about sensing a need and having the generosity of spirit to do what they can in the moment to address that need.
