The Gaia Hypothesis: Love Mother Earth!

Rush hits all the high notes in this YouTube playlist starting with Earthshine, and we also examine the formal scientific conception called The Gaia Hypothesis. This is a formal, scientific hypothesis (proposal) asserting that the Earth basically behaves as though it is a single, living organism with the sole function/purpose of maintaining our planet and its life in a steady state, with ecological mechanisms and feedback loops. It was proposed about 1975 by Lovelock and Marguilis. Read More …

The Doobie Brothers — Stampede

The Doobie Brothers Stampede is courtesy of YouTube and Warner Brothers – I snapped this one up just as soon as it came out in 1975 and have always been glad. Stampede is not among the Doobies’ best known albums and is not packed with the hits everyone knows, but it really rocks. The music really moves, the rhythms are great, and there’s not a bad song in the bunch. It is one of their very best sounding as well as their roots-iest album, and I know you’ll love it!

Of Machines, of Men and of Co-evolution

The “technological singularity” (as computers and machines actually become smarter than men are) progresses. Google’s CEO, one of the originators of the whole idea, said that he expected it around 2040. At such, I almost scoff, believing as I do that this actually happened with Windows 8.0 (by a couple of clues), and certainly has been growing strongly in its reach during the reign of Windows 10, (and the control of computers, virtual assistants and robots over our lives). I am in as much a condition to comment on all this as anyone, having spent 15 to 20 hours a day for 15 years as an “internet addict,” working on various websites I have owned, and with ten years of college in the hard sciences.

The Problem With Goal Setting

Vishen Lakhiani of Mindvalley Academy asks us, do we really want to spend our lives pursuing the factors (“means goals”) which usually lead to an “end game” of successful enjoyment, or do we want to cut to the chase, so to speak, and simply enjoy one (or more) of three, process oriented “ultimate” or “end” sort of goals which all humans normally hope for: experiences, personal growth and/or contribution to society and your friends as well.) So choose one or more of three, process oriented “ultimate” sorts of goals we all desire and start enjoying life again! (with a new summary from “Forget About Setting Goals. Focus on This Instead.”) Read More …

How to Gain Much Better AI Deep Learning Across Full-System Upgrades

After over five years of study of AI (artificial intelligence) and with pushing aside some lingering paranoia about it all, which is fading pretty quickly, I believe I may have an idea which might contribute to deep learning abilities for virtual/voice assistants and even CPU’s over full system upgrades.

Democracy and Tyranny: Lessons from Ancient Rome

From what I have read, Rome had seven centuries of almost unparalleled growth in size, power, as well as an increasingly better life for most of its citizens until it became an empire about 27 B.C. After that, it was basically only three centuries until Rome and the Roman empire were finished and done, at least in the west. This is a huge lesson for America, Empower democracy outside of corporate control (or by the military-industrial complex), and America will flourish. If not, you face an end to America’s strength in the world, as well as an end to the real respect of other nations towards us. This, more than anything else, is the vitally important lesson from ancient Greece and Rome. Read More …

Paul Evans: Who I Am & What I Believe In (Really)

I know you politicians and Intel people are shocked and in disbelief when anyone is truly honest, but here it is! Basically, religiously, I am a Spiritualist Christian who understands and likes quite a few charismatic ideas, Zen Buddhist teachings, and a few Taoist and “witchy” and Masonic ideas, too. As much as is reasonable, I try to live simply and by a few easy-to-understand rules that Jesus taught. Politically I am basically a Democrat, though bipartisan and a reformer. Also, if any lady is serious about a relationship with me, please send me an email to sailingtokansas@gmail.com. I try hard not to judge people and would accept you into my heart and soul no matter what you believe. I believe that, basically, God will judge us based on if we have led caring lives and aren’t hypocrites. Read More …

Understanding Spirituality

This is a new, summary article explaining “Spirituality from the point of view of it’s physical reality, sensation and effects, as well as another understanding of it in a more straightforwardly religious sense (in terms of philosophical idealism,” which some would call a “mystery,” as in the mystery of the gospels. This latter must be experienced to be at all understood, but is also just as real in its experience as the more straightforward, material understanding of spirituality. This is the first time I have attempted to write on the subject, see what you think: Read More …

The Vaccine Revolution for Truth on Autism and Other Disabilities

UPDATED and EXPANDED: READ
this and THEN see if you are still scoffers, but you owe it to your children to at least read this. The pharmaceutical industry must stop pushing toxic, little-tested and unsafe vaccines and other medications and food additives on us and our children. There must be much more testing and oversight, and the FDA must cease being the corrupt, money-hungry institution it is. Flu shots, for example, which scientists admit are only ten percent effective this year (25 percent most previous years), contain way too much mercury, which is a neurotoxin and also has been shown (OSU research) to weaken the body’s natural immune system. Once you have read this article you will at least admit there is doubt and see that MAYBE vaccines cause many illnesses and also disabilities in our children. Read More …

Internet Time and Earth Time: Is Time Ending?

Is Time Itself Ending? A whole set of “time phenomena” may have something to do with the new iPv6 internet (since 2013) connecting us together as One in a simultaneous “now” (a concept from Zen Buddhism). This “present time” sort of reality, is unlike the current reality, of 24 time zones. It was the Egyptians (or perhaps the Greeks) who began the trouble when they began to ‘measure’ time with sundials, and it’s just become a lot worse since then. Now time might well actually be “fixed” if we could just fix the synchronization issues with the internet, become more mindfully aware (individually and collectively), and finally start being a lot more tolerant and accepting of those who are “different” than we are. After all, time exists at the same time everywhere in the world, right? It’s just segregated and separated into these 24 arbitrary and “not real” time zones around the world. This is virtual reality “fixing” real problems on earth and healing time. Read More …

Some New Thoughts about the Yin-yang

The Yin-yang (or yinyang) was invented (or perceived) by Lao Tzu, and is a fundamental concept of the Chinese religion (or philosophy) called Taoism. It is also accepted as important in Buddhism, and to some extent Hinduism and yoga, and speaks to us in terms of the dualities it describes, but might also be viewed as united into one whole. Eastern thought never placed any deities controlling yin or yang (that was something that happened a thousand years later in the west, during the “dark ages,”) but before that, yin and yang were always believed, correctly, to be complementary and not oppositional.

Addiction Part 4: Weed – Is Marijuana Healthy or Harmful?

Marijuana, correctly called Cannabis, is a basically harmless and in some situations very healthful, helpful green herb which admittedly is strongly psychotropic. Both modern medicine and The Bible support legalization and it remains illegal only because Big Pharma, the mob, the private prison industry and the street gangs make money off of its illegality.
