Constructive Criticism


Bridging the gap of knowledge

Spans an archway of wisdom

Inability to clearly discern flow

Sounds alarms to all concerned

Revolving ethics shuttered

Our freedom to envision clearly

Requires sweeping away chaotic

Information created to obfuscate

Holographic illusionary intent

Abundance lies beyond the gap

Belief in trust; a vague notion

Since we change like blowing winds

Shifting sands while marking time.

Framing Individual Thought

Thinking deeply about the necessities of future communities. The challenge is to know that the reality will be based upon the starting conditions – which cannot be optimized until we know the baseline. What things of the old order will we have to work with and what wheels will need to be reinvented? What do we do when push comes to shove and the game explodes? Pick up the pieces and go home.

What sorts of things do we need to prepare for? We can imagine anything, especially with the current focus of Hollywood entertainment. I got too much in too short order; i learned some valuable lessons from observing the television that folks here watch. No wonder the Donald vs the Bern is scaring folks shirtless – our weigh of portrait painting is pandering to lowlifes.

High life can be obtained – just realize that we live in a dreamworld that is rarely under our personal control. We make it up as we go along and only remember the best parts. How we perceive is based upon our enlightenment – what is real when nothing is real can be the substance that we need to recreate what has yet to be created. Easy to do if you can change scale.

First, get out of your mind and into your heart. The aspects of what we know, as taught to the mind, have to be removed, as they are block to our processing. The more formal education that you have, the more difficult the task becomes. Yet we all have worked through these things before as part of our process for getting where we wanted to be. You are here now to vette what you know.

We all know how to validate assumptions. The little dainty – assume makes an ass of you (u) and me – is an invalid bromide provided to get you off task. You have to assume you know something – let that be the point from which you start rebuilding your bigger picture. If you really need a starting point, go into yourself and find your place of peace. Start from there.

Doc has chemistry as his fall back. The depth of chemical knowledge serves as a template for branching further thought. If i can create a pathway of action through a chemical transition state, then i can establish a model to follow, when i investigate a new area. My depth of knowledge can be spread along a breadth of topics, by setting up a basis of logic through balanced equations – mass in always equals mass out.

There are many complimentary weighs of framing your thought patterns. By setting a model to compare true and false, you can become consistent in your approach, using a diversity of forms. The forms that things take shapes them; using sacred geometry as a favored shape is a ticket toward the divine. I mean this in an aesthetic sense rather than as religious gospel.

The basics of community involve feeding, housing and entertaining a group of people. The transition state can be visioned as the weigh to get there from here. The pathway is elaborate, yet consists of single steps that are accomplished in some sort of order, with later always following earlier. As we develop experience, we can make changes in the form and flow.

After setting location, the group gathers. The size of the group is an indicator of the level of power, influence and import. A group of one is necessary to get started – as you are already here, i believe you qualify as an individual. If we expand our thought base to make this a discussion between me and you, we are up to a group of two. If you tell somebody to read this, you are a group of two and i am an omniscient three – i add value to what you discuss, but i am not there beyond my ideas. This allows us to always carry a plus or minus one in our counts – which means a lot at smaller numbers, not very much when you get to double digits and nothing at all beyond – except to provide wiggle room.

Small groups up to five fit well in the domain of chemistry. Going up to eight makes things fuzzy, except in organic chemistry which is the New York Times crossword puzzle of the field of chemistry. But different endeavors take different units and the scale is always set by determining what the size of one is on that scale. In chemistry, one is the atom; on human scale, one is one human. We have an unlimited number of atoms that can make a limited number of humans – we are good at that. The resources of the earth have likely reached the limit of how many humans can be supported here – time to redirect our thinking about reducing our population counts voluntarily.

Thyme after Time

The oddity of the game is that they mess with us for no apparent reason. Today is a fine example – the time change. There is no reason to make people change their clock for daylight savings time, except to create more inconvenience. The solution to this problem is to change your individual perception of time – to release yourself from the entrainment.

I use the Mayan Tzolkin calendar as my functional guide to life pace. The 260 days in the cycle, pair one of thirteen day counters with twenty glyphs  that correspond to months. The theme of each month repeats on cycle every 21 days, with a different non-linear count. My birth date is yellow cosmic star – today’s day is yellow rhythmic seed.

Is the plural of glyph glyphs, or is it just glyph? After all, fish is the plural of fish. Words express emotions in their choice – many printed words give dual meanings.  The appendix at the end of the book defines the authors connotations, but too often the words are co-opted by the buzz definition.

People talk in clips of phrases that are altered in comfort to become functional slang. Lemme has been spending time in chat rooms and on skype – developing a sense of world-wide exposure. He finds that people are very good at being people and communications depends on developing a basis set of common experience.

In this global world, we get to see a person in a distant place talk directly to us as though they are in the room. They can take the vocal cues and mate them to visual context – now two senses are in play and we can grow closer to establishing a bond.

People are always searching for people we can bond to. The process of bonding is a permanent weigh of establishing rap-pore with other people. It is a method of peeling the outer layers of self protection away, letting some vulnerability come into play.  It becomes a matter of establishing trust.

Our conditioning is to foster mistrust. Like attracts like and we get comfortable being around people that think the way we think. This validates self in our personal weigh of measuring our standing amongst others, especially those whose opinions we respect. We leave a place to get a new start and run away from issues that we cannot deal with. This process creates isolation, pits us against each other and against ourselves. It creates bad karma.

Chemical bonds are made of love – where two electrons pair and rest in a more stable state than the two individual electrons alone. The nesting theoretically creates two nests, one at a lower energy that is the ground state and a second region of high energy and volatility that remains empty – the anti-bonding state. The modern theory of chemistry can be used as a basis set for new age sociology – the idea of reforming community from the ground up.

The parallels between the ideas that we have and our physical reality are not coincidental. The entrainment of our collective thought serves to elevate a mass number of people into propping up an illusion, that the world can live in the highly excited anti-bonding world without depletion of our personal bio-energies.

The behavior that we have learned was from people overwhelmed by change throughout their life. The holographic illusion that we lived in morphed, as the culture turned stored oil into human resource and populated the whirled with 8 billion individual people without the permanent resource to sustain us all. Are there 8 billion individual souls?

I think not. I go back to the calendar and i see 260 souls – one for each day of the cycle. These soul groups are subdivided into six major orientations, which we can name north south east west up and down. Because people already grok the direction concept and have applied it to maps and globes, i suggest instead that we use the names of the quarks – up and down, top and bottom, strange and charmed to be the titles for this endeavor – to speak clearly in words that have assigned meanings, such that we begin branching from the same points of reference.

To meet a soul mate – one in 260 is a rare opportunity to look at yourself. The persons involved share a form of genetics that contains mannerisms and thought processes that are same rather than foreign – down to common assumption of how the basis of personal thought works ( or doesn’t work when entrained outside personal normal parameters ).

If you find a soul mate with the same spin quark – you have a doppelganger – the same person running around within multiple different individuals. The outsides don’t necessarily look the same, but the unique personal properties align in a way that contextual thought flows through all the beings simultaneously – a real example of a mechanism for the 100th monkey effect. Note that monkey is a glyph on the Tzolkin calendar.

The literal translation of our verbiage is similar to the thoughts of the red queen in Alice’s wonderland – where words mean exactly what she thinks they mean, and continually misinterprets what everybody is saying. The system has lost the ground state and nothing is real, so there is nothing to get hung about. SFF. Strawberry Fields Forever.

So, if we escape the constraints of the anti-bonding concept of exciting (messing with) everybody’s frequency by the nonsensical farce of time change within the current system, then perhaps our higher frequency resonance can create a ground state so stable that the energy of the current bio-energy feed rise to the point where the charade, this common illusion, can no longer be maintained.

In other words, we now have a mechanism to truly Give Peace a Chance.

Beatles Community

We get by with a little help from our friends …

I read the news today, old boy … the English army had just won the war … and though the news was rather sad … we heard it all before …

All you need is love!

Funny, how the Beatles had a song for every occasion. The wisdom incorporated in rock music has provided an enlightenment of sorts – it always allows me to philosophize upon modern wisdom as a catchment for observing life. The games we are playing now are beneath our personal dignity – it is time to move on.

Greer destroys the myth of progress at The Archdruid Report. His recent series on Retrotopia has got me thinking again about building community. As I watch the voices on the internet argue, bitch and groan about almost everything, I realize that we must stand away from the keyboards and go out and do it. The net tells us to pack up in big groups and fight the structure – that is not the weigh.

All we are saying … is give peace a chance …

The fight is not on – it is over. The heart says that war must end – peaceful coexistence is coming whether we like it or not. As we watch the total disintegration of the current holographic illusion, we need to remember, who we are and where we come from. It is our duty to live as free thinking people, not the clones and mind numbed remnants of the end of the prior age.

To understand the future, we must imagine a different past. The one we were loaded up with is a fiction designed to foster an illusion – it does not exist, as such. We are open to so many memory tricks – from photoshopped events to outrageous lies, that our reality has been shaped as a bubble by Hollywood with ulterior motive.

We now must wake up to the reality of what we have and what we do not have. This planet is abundant, yet has been ruled by a class of people that were not in it for our collective best interests. To change, it is time to learn. To learn, we have to forget and rediscover again, with childlike awe. To do this, we have new light – crystal and indigo children waiting to shine.

Reforming our system at the human scale is a matter of inverting the patterns. We each know something valuable from our experience here, which we have learned despite others telling us what our individual truths should be. We have allowed the mind-numbing to take away the conflict – but we do know better, when it comes time to share what we know … we cannot do that.

Each of us as an individual is a group of one responsible for ourselves. We take upon ourselves commitment to others; children, elderly, disabled, veteran, homeless, … as labels that we should help – not as persons who will appreciate a hand. When you offer help, do you allow the person who needs assistance to decide the terms? What is help anyway? Another Beatles song!

Help … I need somebody, help … not just anybody … when I was younger, so much younger, younger than today … I never needed anybody’s help in any way …

We, as a people, need to invent our new holographic illusion in the current fractal reality. The ability to succeed is a function of rebuilding a common knowledge from the ground up amongst a new group of people brought together by local geography. As globalization ends, each localization place can set up their infrastructure to serve the needs of the local community.

The current power structures are being extinguished by events that are taking place in real time. The key is to not panic and remember to carry a towel. The answer is forty-two. The real questions are, what do you have to offer and what do you need? As we offer new approaches to building community from our small groups of close knit people, we can share the idea of rebuilding infrastructure from the ground up.

Local food production is a major key. Removing the GMOs and the food additives and going back to local based healthy food rather than mass consumable garbage will help our internal vibrations. The higher we can be on simple life, without mind altering drugs, videos and propaganda, the more we should be able to see what is for what it really is. Clean water and clean air will make a big difference – let’s organize a stop to external pollution.

To begin, perhaps some sanity is required. The law as it is recognizes through Citizens United, corporate personhood. To have the benefits of being a person, without the responsibility to live in common with all people, is just plain wrong. The legal system no longer fits us – a return to common law and common sense needs to be sought – perhaps by defining common interest on a local level and building many places under different rules and requirements – all dedicated to making things better for the local cast of characters involved.

We all live in a yellow submarine

Here, locally, we have a non-profit, the Pacific Community Resource Center. We have a center for transitory living, which is an old 16 room motel with commercial kitchen space. We also run a thrift store in town, at a loss, to ensure that our clients have access to clothing, household goods and entertainment. We have a contract for a community garden, which was fallow for last year and ready to go. The ideas for what we can do are only limited by the number of folks we can feed and house.

Banks own many fallow properties, which they stole from people like you and me. If our local non-profits can own these buildings and gift them to our clients and workers, then we can begin to lift our local communities up from the bootstraps. Come Together, find out more.

Water Whirled

This is doc’s contribution to 90 issues with 90 solutions. To see more, visit timeless solutions.


The question has arisen, how do we solve the water challenges that we face in the world today? Well, water is the most abundant substance in the world. It is one of the few features of our system that remains a constant throughout all the variables on all the fractal scales. To begin to define the water systems depends upon redefining what we know and do not know about water.

Of all the different challenges to water – the ones that we can address best are the crises that we face on the human scale. The idea that there are people on this planet without access to potable water requires serious infrastructure expenditures. Cleaning up polluted waters is a fool’s game, as long as these waters are being continually polluted. The governance through law has failed the water system, but that is another solution – reformatting the legal structure.

The politics of water does require notice – water laws concerning water rights are decided by the states on a unilateral basis – here in Oregon water rights for the salmon were established in 1987 – long after the right of timber companies, ranches, farmers and existing municipalities. Who was here first? There are also squabbles about how to clean the water – with different hoops to jump through and fingers to point. The idea that your crops are in danger in low water years is enough to curtail growing activity – our system for growth should include watering home grown plants to feed all individuals within our community spheres.

However – food is its own problem. The allocation of water at different quality levels for different requirements has to be spread out on a big table where everybody can see both the current allocations and the necessary requirements. The use of groundwater rather than surface water has been a solution, but fracking and steady depletion without replenishment has contributed to fresh water abuse.

In Oregon, we used watershed councils enabled by OWEB – the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. Lottery money was dedicated to opening fish passage in the Umpqua River Basin – where miles and miles had been cut off by roads with undersized culverts and other blockages. If the fish can go to places where they were previously cut off, then the whole ecosystem is enhanced with the nutrients they leave in the spawning process. The watershed scale is a point to begin a local approach to clean water.

This summer, we are putting in the foundations of a campus in Azalea Oregon, on the banks of Cow Creek off the South Umpqua River. The site is upstream of the EPA Superfund site at Middle Creek, where acid mine drainage has denuded the fish in 18 miles of prime habitat. The cost of phase one are projected to be over $10 million, to solve 20% of the problem – just the surface.

Stepping back – we need to change our thinking about water – to keep up with the forefronts of our modern science thinking. Gerry Pollack, at the University of Washington presents a TED talk, here, that should wake people up. Instead, the science has refused to migrate toward his theory – past dogma must be held until conclusive proof is established, by means set up to prevent that truth be told. To do better, we have to learn better.

The lessons are not to be learned in schools. The lessons are to be learned by getting back to the land and be part of the system of use that brings water to us on a human scale. When you grow a garden and meet a water schedule that allows you to watch your land turn into food with a few seeds – you realize a simple joy of life that enables clear thinking and refreshment.

Water is the key to life, to hold it sacred and protect its sources are things that can help heal the planet. Corporation ownership is not responsible to the land, only to the bottom line profit. The new weigh is a system of measurement that can be used to follow the water at many scales – by measuring the various properties and getting to know the water on a personal basis.

Pollack talks of structured water in exclusion zone (EZ) layers on hydrophilic (water loving) surfaces. The chemistry of natural resources is about the exchange of water throughout living systems. Rivers are analogous to veins and arteries of blood – carrying many things through a variety of landscapes – all leading back to the sea.

The ocean is yet another scale of the many facets of water challenges that we face. We could clean up oil spills, rather than hiding them. We could haul in the floating plastic islands in the Pacific. We can stop spraying the air with chemicals that alter the libido of the planet. In order to solve the ocean challenge – looking out for fish and dolphins and wales and marine life requires that we change our current perspectives. The sea has been a food source for many years, but overharvest has created serious tolls. Again, simplification of this problem to human scale requires a softening of our physical foot-print.

This can be accomplished by returning to local communities and developing home grown resources and wisdom. Civilized nuclear civilization has exploded the population, which has been educated to war rather than believing in peace. A pull-back to the scale where we internally rebuild infrastructures in more natural form, might allow us to get outside of the box and think differently about water use.

Good water quality is the ultimate goal for human use. The chemical tests that are included in water quality monitoring, include areas like turbidity, conductivity, pH, total dissolves and suspended solids, and coliform counts. By collecting good information and teaching the proper use of instruments, we can use this area as a focus point to teach our children well. Moving from municipal systems to wells in rural areas would also take pressure off the water. Current waste and wastewater treatment technology is highly technological and not terribly effective.

We could do well, by exploring the many facets of water deeper. As a chemist interested in water systems, I hope to develop a water business based on education, to measure the properties of structured and constructed waters as a means to better hydration for more healthful living. As water becomes more of a commodity to be concerned about, our intake of fresh water should be over a pint a day – just to keep a reasonable flush.

The things we can do include offering blessings and love to our water when we drink it. If we consider water to be alive on its own scale, we can exchange respect and have a much better relationship. This might be capable of opening new pathways toward solving other current crises, by getting out of the mindset where we created the problems..
