The Short and Brutal Life of the Fruit Fly

Sylvia Shawcross

Now, there are only two types of people in the world and it has been this way since the second generation of humans existed: those who know history and those who don’t.

…And then there are those who pretend to know history. And those who know history only as it is written by the victors.

So, there are four types of people in the world.

And then there is the type that know history and just use it nefariously to sway those that don’t know history into repeating history, condemning us into learning nothing collectively until we all end up basically in a nuclear showdown on a dying planet without mustard for our hotdogs.

I forgot about them.

So there are five types of people in this ghastly world. Then there’s that sixth type—the ones who are trying to erase history altogether but let’s not go there.

The important part of this is that the people who know history are not having a very good time right now.

Most people who know history are cursed—haunted and stalked by their Vivid Imagination as if it were some character out of a Dostoyevsky novel.

Those-who-know crawl out of bed in the morning to face the misery of another day on Planet Earth. They do all those immediate prepper things, as most people do now, to face the onslaught of another daily apocalypse (aka known as working and/or looking for work and/or giving up on working and/or giving up looking for work and/or coming out of retirement to work or never retiring).

It’s always at this point that many, for just a few precious minutes, nostalgically reminisce about how once they used to take a shower, dress, eat, grab their wallet and race out the door to their full-time job with benefits in a peaceful country (at least in the western world).

It was such a simple routine. Sweet in its innocence really, like a newborn fruit fly on a rotten pomegranate that wafts in and out fluttering hopefully with the promise of a fulfilled life. A very short-lived life. If you’re a fruit fly.

Those-who-know, however, realize they are not fruit flies and that is a large part of the problem.

Now Those-who-know have to take pepper spray, covid passports, masks, cell phones, hand sanitizers, tablets, solar panels and those weird little off-the-grid fire starters that come in four colours just in case the car runs out of gas and you need a cup of tea on the side of the road with the homeless because you are them and they are you.

They do all this because they have ambitions that their lives will last longer than that of a fruit fly.

The important part being that no matter what Those-who-know do, their Vivid Imagination tags along. Their Vivid Imagination will just not let them lead the peaceful normal life of Those-who-don’t-know.

They can stand at the door and throw tirades of contradictory facts and statistics and propaganda at their Vivid Imagination to drive it away. They can play a buddhist in-the-moment chant thing on bongo drums just to remind their Vivid Imagination that history is gone and the future is not there to be gone yet and only the moment counts and things could always end up differently.

But alas, for some, no matter what they do, that damn thing keeps tagging along.

And it is particularly active and argumentative at lunch.

Those-who-don’t-know are baffled by Those-Who-Know. Utterly baffled. They might be enjoying their hotdog from Ernie’s pop-up stand but then they look over to see their friend in a glum paralysis staring at their untouched hotdog with tears dripping down their gaunt and pallid and somewhat mottled face.

And when they ask their friend what’s wrong, their friend will usually say really they didn’t want mustard.

For Those-who-don’t-know, this explanation is usually as far as it goes. Probably for good reason. Baffling but basically all they want to know. (Those-who-don’t-know tend not to be big on analyzing other people’s inner turmoil over hotdogs much. If they want to enjoy their hotdog. It’s an adaptation thing developed over generations really to preserve positive thinking. But that’s a whole other story…)

And for Those-who-know, this is about the only explanation they can offer because of censorship and stigmatization and name-calling and social ostracism and lawsuits and terrorism and conspiracy labels and stuff.

And sadly, none of it is their fault. Their Vivid Imagination keeps winning the arguments with them. Particularly when they realize there is possibly nothing imaginary about it at all.

Those-who-don’t-know fail to understand that their friend, gripped by their Vivid Imagination does not see mustard. And offering to buy them another hotdog without mustard only makes them cry harder.

You see, their friend sees the mustard which is grown in France which is part of NATO which is in a war with Russia in the Ukraine where history is repeating itself.

And all the farmers of the world are like the kulaks under Stalin where they were driven off the land for a collective farm and then people were literally starved into submission and is it true that 60% of the farmland in the Ukraine is owned by VanGuard and Blackrock and so we’re not really fighting and risking nuclear confrontation to save the Ukrainian land for the Ukrainian people but for the giant corporations?

And during the 1932 Holodomor millions of people died of starvation until there were no cats and dogs or even long-snouted weevils left. That’s what totalitarian collectivization does historically.

And that’s why some people don’t want mustard on their hotdog.

But never mind all that. The important thing is there are in fact only two types of fruit flies: the Common Fruit Fly and the Mutant Fruit Fly. No matter what variation of mutation we may have in the Mutant group, they’re simply mutants. (I haven’t however looked into their gender pronouns so I may stand to be corrected on that.)

But all in all, this has made life for the Fruit Fly very easy indeed*, they’re either common or a mutant and – knowing their place – they get on with their day. In this ghastly world.

Syl Shawcross lives in Canada – well, actually Quebec – and puts words on screens. And sometimes on paper. When she can find a pen.

*Yes. I know I titled this The Short and Brutal Life of the Fruit Fly when in fact fruit flies are happy creatures living fulfilling lives but you see I’m trying to be relevant to the times. Say one thing one day and deny it the next day. That’s how it works. For those in the political arena anyway. Hope and courage to everyone during such terrible times as we are living with the first casualty of war. The truth is usually somewhere in the middle. Maybe one day we’ll know.

Oh, the despair!

Those who Know history also Know the present and the future. This category wasn’t mentioned in the article yet is the one to follow if membership per se eludes one – for these do not despair, nor are vanquished but always prevail and guide the rest to safety, and in this epic time, to the Golden Age and the Eternal Realm as foretold in all the world’s great scriptures, where Freedom and Joy express the Spirit in abundance.

“in fact fruit flies are happy creatures living fulfilling lives”

Too true.

“The fruit fly was made for Morgan.” — TH.Morgan

From WikiPedia: “Thomas Hunt Morgan (September 25, 1866 – December 4, 1945)[2] was an American evolutionary biologist, geneticist, embryologist, and science author who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1933 for discoveries elucidating the role that the chromosome plays in heredity.

Following the rediscovery of Mendelian inheritance in 1900, Morgan began to study the genetic characteristics of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. In his famous Fly Room at Columbia University, Morgan demonstrated that genes are carried on chromosomes and are the mechanical basis of heredity.”

These exquisite little creatures fulfill their fruitful lives as a basis for the study of genetics.”

I was a little financially irked when Dianthus republished ‘The Shining Ones’. My rare first edition instantly plunged like a GB Pound. No matter, it is a wonderful and astounding book which I would never sell anyway. Without checking (being 200 miles from my London library since ‘lockdown’), there is a chapter where Christian sent renderings of images on a wall at Catal Huyuk to a well known geneticist at, I think, Oxford. The expert was intrigued because they, apparently, were the genetic markers for drosophila, the perhaps not so humble fruit fly.

After these 2-3 years and all that has been learned, again the brain is drawn to gas, oil and various other weapons in the existential resource war. That’s the way it is.

I very much hope that soon things will improve and everywhere the authorities will say: “Here it is, it is over, resources are settled, there is energy efficiency. Now, come on, line up in a column one by one about inoculation, gene therapy, modification, chip, brain-computer interface…”

(If any one or more people want, tell me and I will reprint here the full speech of Putin at the signing ceremony of the agreements for the admission to Russia of the DPR, LPR, Zaporizhia region and Kherson region. Unique, impressive, inspiring, covering in the fullest possible way all the points of the transgressions of the West and a perfectly, existentially different Russia. The fans will sigh at this famous speech.) 🙂

I forget where I read it, but it was pointed out to me that the Ukraine conflict isn’t Russia vs NATO/US but Gazprom vs EXXON. And other ideas like, the USA is an oil company with an army. It has probably been like this for a very long time, East India company etc. The ‘State’ so to speak is just a front.

Before (and after) oil there was whaling. Formal slavery ended in the US in thet 1860’s. Whales are magnificent creatures. There was someone who was big in both the slave and whaling trades. His name was Aaron Lopez. The early directors of the East India Company also had Spanish and Portuguese sounding names. Many of them.

German companies continue to expand their locations in the USA Washington lures German companies with cheap energy and low taxes. This is especially true for the southern states. Berlin is alarmed – and wants to take countermeasures.

In the wake of the Ukraine war and the energy crisis in Germany, the USA is stepping up its wooing of German companies. In addition to cheap energy, numerous US states are also offering tax breaks and other assistance. This is especially true in the southern states.

“We recently had the lowest energy costs in the U.S. in eleven out of 14 quarters,” says Kevin Stitt, Governor of Oklahoma, for example, in an interview with Handelsblatt. Georgia’s Secretary of Commerce Pat Wilson argues similarly: “Our energy costs are low and the grids are stable.”

https://www.handelsblatt.com/technik/it-internet/wirtschaftspolitik-deutsche-unternehmen-bauen-ihre-standorte-in-den-usa-immer-weiter-aus-/28697464.html

A few Russians are fleeing the partial mobilization recently imposed in the country – at the moment mostly to Georgia and Kazakhstan. But the Germans are also on the run. However, they are not doing so on bicycles, but rather at the factory, plant and company level.  

The Wall Street Journal published an extremely curious article about the fact that the relocation of German chemical companies to the USA has begun. So – how do you …? After all, aren’t the chemical and pharmaceutical industries two of Germany’s most important industries? Similar information also appeared in the German Handelsblatt, except that the entire Volkswagen Group was the subject there instead. Its management declared that it would have to move to the USA if energy prices in Europe remained at the same level.

And now imagine this: One of the world’s most famous automakers, a face if not the face of Germany, could leave the country.

“Yes what’s wrong with you, champion?”, you might ask at this point. But now really: what exactly is going on here? First, since February, Europe has been forced to supply almost all of its weapons to Ukraine to fuel the war there. Second, Europe has been forced to impose sanctions on Russia, resulting in an unprecedented energy crisis. And now something “not yet clear” has happened to two natural gas pipelines at the bottom of the sea, for which, thanks to the U.S., Poland’s former foreign minister and MEP Radek Sikorski has already found time.

“Who benefits?” is a hackneyed formula that has even discredited itself many times. But right now is the best time to remember it. Europe without heat, Europe without electricity and now without money. I wonder if EU citizens are ready to pay such a price for the Pax Americana? Of course they are ready. And if they become stubborn, they can always be exhorted to discipline with horror stories about a Russian threat.

No, EU citizens are not ready to accept this, they will object, and… everything seems increasingly ready for expected take on Orwell’s world map, with strong Russia. (And, what are Russia’s plans for the future, contrary to the “terrible stories of Russian threat”? Well, let’s see, let’s see…:))

Madness indeed. But I remember watching millions of German women looking up at Hitler’s sedan as it passed by, with the love light in their eyes. By the time that madness had passed, four million Germans lay dead.

And their thanks for all their love and devotion to that collective madness?

Fruit flies. Once; in an experiment; a fresh clean apple in a sterile environment was hermetically sealed in a glass jar; as the apple began to deteriorate fruit flies appeared from the apple texture and ate away the decomposing matter; some died and more grew; until there was no more apple left; then the last flies died and no more appeared.

the science hasn’t revealed to the people even 1% of the wonder of this place; because the established institution is really there to deflect your attention to lesser frivolities, extirpate the mystery and hide it. If the pinnacle of knowledge is actively doing that; what is every other established institution doing?

To be brutally cynical about it (an attitude that is always well merited), here is how it works:

All kids use social media and suicide rates have been on the increase since the mighty Covid arrived.

https://suicidebereavementuk.com/teen-suicide-rates-on-the-rise/

(Article from two days ago.)

New analysis of Office for National Statistics data has found that suicide rates among 15 to 19-year-olds is climbing, with youth mental health charity YoungMinds now calling for urgent government support to address this growing crisis.

The incidence of social media usage will naturally have risen since the viral pantomime – as the rising incidence of young people “discovering” they were transgender demonstrated. There is already a strong likelihood that these suicides had something to do with social media. There were therefore any number of possible contenders for the Molly Russell story.

Does this mean our media “family” truly care about these tragic cases? Of course not. Indeed, if anything, the overlords are clearly bent on thinning out the “lower orders” and the more suicides they can induce the happier they are.

Thus this media tale is purely concerned with erasing the last vestige of free speech from the internet. And the most effective showbiz angle is that anyone who points this out is a monster with no respect for that poor departed etc.

I don’t know about fruit flys, but it is impossible not to see that everything is almost exactly calculated around the fact that at least 70% – to varying degrees – will remain attracted to the fraud like a moth fascinated by a lamp. It was the level sought, the “global goal,” the percentage that had to be “secured” against the invisible danger; they all repeated it.

Undoubtedly, among the common characteristics shared by this % – and also from at least 26 of the remaining 29%; 1% is for Globbalah – is, for example, the deep conviction that “to have is to be happy.” So the uproar of “2030 – you will have nothing and be happy” confirmed this belief in the meaning of a good existence, removing from the minds of those who share it any remaining doubt about the veracity of the materialistic postulates of our celebrated modernity.

This also confirmed all doubts about the origin of religious tenets. It is now clear that everything has always been powerful, expanded and perfected over the centuries, a tool for establishing power control. Conditional authority. Over the minds of the poor, whose minds command their hands to obey the rich elites.

See how they possess, what prosperous and rich lives they lead, with all the means of a peaceful blissfully existence; how they drink and eat while forcing us to part with control of our money, our possessions, to eat insects,  and to tremble for our energy and information (no disinfo!) “compatibility with commitment to the requirements of the global community.”

Against this background, what does the religious nonsense mean that the addiction to possessions is soul-destroying, “rather a camel will enter through the eye of a needle than a rich man into the kingdom of Heaven”, etc. Especially when we know who proclaimed them, those traitorous during the “covid” churches and temples (I don’t know them all, but many of them), many of which said “unvaccination is a sin” and the like. The Vatican has two hands and two feet in all the reboot plans (Lynn de Rothschild’s”inclusive capitalism” and many others; everywhere). Knowing their history, how they served as instrument of power.

And suddenly, the Ten Commandments, and all kinds of commands from all religions; wealth, possession itself is sin, and so on. On top of that, they are commandments that declare their purpose to change man and society. And there they are, many of them, stuck in the mouth of WEF and all the possible global transformers, all from the top of the pyramid. All who live as rich and opulent as possible are imposing a global mass transformation using paraphrased religious precepts and guidance, something the authorities have always done for centuries.

How much clearer can it be? How much more clearly can we understand what is really important and valuable in life, for the preservation of which to fight. Not that it was not clear before what was real and important in life, but now many of the naive doubters could understand it by fixating on it.

While we’re rebooted and reset, are we going to listen and hope for potential salvation from God, from the spiritual realms and all that crap? 100% psyop to divert attention from the real problem so we can stay calm while they reset us so it’s easier and unhindered! A tale of consolation for the foolish sheep on the way to the slaughterhouse!! God – debunked!!!

I have even proved the deception of this existence by two theoretical experiments. Here they are, that I may help those who go astray to come to a straight path:

1. Proof of libel for the existence of Infinity. Recipe:

You lie down, relax, and imagine that you have a spaceship of indestructible and eternal material, loaded with endless fuel. You are also immortal. You cross the Galaxy, then the universe, another universe, all the universes. How far will you go? What happens next? Nothing? Does it have an end? What is it after that? etc..

This is how we proved that the finite of time and space exist. Now, in this moment and forever.

2. Proof of non-divine origin. Recipe:

You sit on a wooden chair with your back straight and you think: everything has an origin and we don’t know about something that came out of nothing. We assume that the universe came from that super-concentrated point. Where did she come from? From another universe/point. Where did she come from?…And so on – there are no spells and tricks with the appearance of something out of nothing. How far will we go returning to the path of origin? What’s before that?

So, as it became clear, on the one hand time and space are finite, and on the other hand the origin is clear, and it is 100% non-divine. Science is established, the delusion of God-debunked.

All the concentration at this point – which is like all other efforts for large-scale control, when all totalitarian regimes throughout history have stated the goal of implementing a digital panopticon, with a social rating system, and to genetically transform humanity, stating that they have the technology to do so – must go to the belief that the community will unite and preserve its sacred daily material life, social benefits, etc., which the Globbalah wants to take away from us.

As the old wisdom of fruit flies says: by their fruits you will know them

So we’ll definitely meet there, Nix. 🙂 

You know that the first of all things is honesty. So when it is here (or there), the personality is reduced to a minimum and there is no pretense and no drooling. And like that crude comment you remember, both and the two experiments and the description of the exclusivity of today are accurate. All said directly from the bottom of the walled-up dungeon, where self-deception is deadly as gas, so it cannot thrive, you can’t afford to buy it over and over again.

A little higher, on the upper level, it is still possible to reflect on things, so that one or another cynical interpretation with a garnish of hopelessness is still within the man’s ability to buy it. Savings from the obvious are available, still enough to be able to buy something other than the obvious and be a happy person. It’s a rich job, Nix, it’s not for me, I’m a poor man.

You know that.

The question is what is the relationship between the two experiments and the accurate description of the exclusivity of today. The ear of a needle is still here (or there) and measures the collected. It’s even more timeless than taxes and the banking system. (Even, too bold, but I’d suggest it’s more timeless than the thumbs-up-down metric.)

If I lie or stretch elastic abstractions, let the camel enter for me. 🙄

Hello plino; I often disagree with your comments but am not into down voting them. There is a lot of truth in this particular post, so my compliments.

I think most agree that the universe is infinite by any measure of science. There used to be a crystal clear sky at night… Long ago, anyone keenly observing the stars became aware of the dark enormity of space and time. Some of the greatest poems reflect this awareness.

I think reflective intelligence exists in all forms of matter. The tiniest microscopic question is “What am I?” The Universe provides an infinite audience asking the same question.

Hello plino; I often disagree with your comments…

I’d rather you had said the opposite, Paul. Now that you have begun so, the bitterness in my heart prevents further discussion of Infinity. 😔 

 🙂 A joke.

The question is, does this thought, which absolutely logically (with quite simple logic, the simplest of all) prove Infinity, have “flesh and blood”? Can this thought become flesh, like the word in the famous sentence at the beginning of the big book? What relation does this indisputable fact (if anyone disputes it, he just has to prove that there is a limit beyond which “there is nothing”) have to my, our existence? The simple thought of it, without seeking to reach an answer, that’s it. If this does not say something to man – without visualizing it and turning it into an idea to appropriate it – then there is a very dense habit of transmutation into matter. Well, nothing special, on the contrary – one of the most common things. And a missed opportunity.

The other side of the question, the origin. The fact is that everything has origin. (If anyone disputes this, please explain this magic “something out of nothing”.) So something comes from something before; and it comes from something before… In the conditions of the actual space-time Infinity. (Is there any attempt at empty philosophizing in this, or are there two absolutely undeniable facts?)

There is infinity, and there is that everything originates from something / somewhere. So, the very simple conclusion is that there is no way there can be infinity in origin.

What do we see in nature and the people around us? Everything is done for a reason, which is caused by some law, which gives rise to some necessity for the corresponding action. Nothing in nature happens for nothing, and everything that man does is due to some necessity.

I have at least two questions.:

For what reason/necessity that which is at the beginning of origin would create that which is the world / universe / existence? By any reasonable logic, it has no need for anything to help it exist (fuel/food..)

Yes, but here is the world, here are the laws, here are the forces and the ratio between them. Everything wants something, dominates over something below it, etc.

What would this thing from which everything originates, from, say, us humans, want? Can it be something bad, something to use, something to profit from, when it has no needs to satisfy?

Etc. 🙂 

If you ask me, the very approach to this, as something that can be understood, is murderous. Is not thinking, after all, strictly speaking, an instrument for mastering and then subduing things?

Simply putting these few indisputable factual questions is what does something; something different from the usual consideration. Or at least it should, it could. Here is a simple explanation of the meaning of faith. Or rather, “Why approach with faith instead of thought”, specifically on the occasion of this.

Hello NixonScraypes: I wasn’t familiar with Charles Baudelaire. Here’s the best translation I could find. >

Evening Harmony

The season is at hand when swaying on its stem
Every flower exhales perfume like a censer;
Sounds and perfumes turn in the evening air;
Melancholy waltz and languid vertigo!
Every flower exhales perfume like a censer;
The violin quivers like a tormented heart;
Melancholy waltz and languid vertigo!
The sky is sad and beautiful like an immense altar.
The violin quivers like a tormented heart,
A tender heart, that hates the vast, black void!
The sky is sad and beautiful like an immense altar;
The sun has drowned in his blood which congeals…
A tender heart that hates the vast, black void
Gathers up every shred of the luminous past!
The sun has drowned in his blood which congeals…
Your memory in me glitters like a monstrance!

– Translated by William Aggeler –

Thanks! Good stuff.

The story of Covid as told to us by the mass media was one of a particularly virulent pathogen which came onto the planet in 2020 started infecting, terrorizing and killing people en masse.

It was the story of a “pandemic level event” in which societies were told they must lockdown, people should stay indoors, masks must be placed over mouths, kids should stay off playgrounds and generally humans should avoid contact with others.

It was a story of closed down schools, closed down businesses, closed down churches and soon-to-be overwhelmed hospitals.

As the story goes the entire world was going to have to take a genetically engineered experimental medical product made by some of the largest Pharmaceutical companies in order to save humanity from an unprecedented mass death event.

As the story unfolded it soon became apparent that there were numerous contradictions and inconsistencies to this tale. While most dutifully went along with the media story and government edicts some began to sit up and take notice of these anomalies.

Early on one of the more conspicuous questions was, “Why weren’t we allowed to ask any questions?”

“Why wasn’t the media asking any questions?”

“How did media all around the world manage to operate in lockstep?”

The Covid Story increasingly became one of changing definitions, cooked up statistics and ever shifting storylines. Soon the only certainty within the Covid narrative became its uncertainty- the moment the Covid story “you thought you knew” was on solid footing the sands shifted.

“Does today’s story make sense with yesterdays? Will tomorrow’s story make sense with today’s?”

“Did the ‘Rules of Covid’ ever make sense or were they invented purely to be obeyed?”
“How much information was being concealed from the public?”

“Were we really surrounded by sick people, in our homes, neighborhoods and workplaces who were succumbing to a quick-spreading and dangerous virus?”

“If we were truly in a pandemic of biblical proportions would there actually be so much discussion of the epidemiological minutiae?”

A deeper dive into the Covid Rabbit Hole of a thousand questions depicts a fable where hardly a single thread of the story holds up under scrutiny.

To get at the truth of the matter, extensive navigation through a complex labyrinth of deceits, manipulations, obfuscations and concealments is required.

An exhaustive investigation unearths an endless maze of irregularities within the Covid story we are leaving us with one final question, “Was the entirety of the Covid Story a lie?” 

I think I know the answer.

The main difference was the massive existence of two tools: “smart”phones and the explosion of WWW access (either fixed or mobile).

Of course the Covid Story was a lie. But that’s not what the media is about. The media is about setting the tone, stirring in the required emotion, the desired presuppositions. The contradictions became part of the psy-op too. And if at some point, someone somehow managed to break through the fog – like the guy who jumps out the box in “The Truman Show” – you will hear a barrage of screaming self-contradicting lines that will drown out all thought. And everyone will go back to shivering under the bed.

Interesting speculation. They say that flies see us moving in slow motion because their own lives pass so fast. So the way to catch a fly is to sneak up on it even more slowly — so slowly that the fly’s brief attention span doesn’t notice your hand hovering over it, no more than you might notice the movement of a passing cloud.

The stamping of history on the present as its continuation as future is the stamp of fear, masking denial, projected guilt and grievance-based defence-based attack running as a self-protective substitution for true presence.
The masks of history seek to cover for or bolster narrative or mythic identity set by it prequel. But the currently active rules and filters of such a mindset of division are energetic fields recognisable by their effects. To say that unresolved conflicts persist even when ‘put out of mind’ or repackaged as ‘solutions’ by which to outsource fear of pain or loss away from the self-protective ‘control’.

But just as light of life can be covered over, so can it reveal itself through the paths and patterns of willingness to real relationship as distinct from socially masked manipulation.
The self and world we made of life by seeking to force it or others to our own image ‘created’ by limitation and division that ‘evolves’ a fragmentation to systemic structures of control at cost of creative freedom of felt inspiration.

Our living presence holds freedom to select from past experience and future potentials to serve a currently accepted decision or indeed acceptance of who and what we are, rather than what a past strategy of survival sets as a complex of automatic subconscious defences or beliefs, perceptions and response.

Reality is not a result of belief, but our experience of it is, and so reflects feedback to what we give or sow by the measure of our result. Conflict with reality is then self-conflicted by definition. So what is the release of conflict but letting into a peace from which to give and receive truly – that is, live free? No one can release what they don’t even know is there’s. nor will while it is treasured.

Looking within is really the release of a fixation to look anywhere else. Self-honesty is denied by guilting or gaslighting blame. But there is no call for apology or justification for our existence, but its gift is inherently shared – not taken in vain to be robbed by others or denied by a blind and cruel fate.

Our guilt-driven linear sense of time flies like an arrow.
Fruit flies like a banana.

it’s all a matter of perspectives opening to a greater appreciation that shines or shares of itself, naturally and unselfconsciously.
Timelessness has no scale or dimension, yet is the basis from which extension creates unfolding of relational experience. Yin cannot be without Yang, and both are of a whole that cannot be contained or defined, yet to a masked and distanced denied denial, we come out of ‘nothing’ and so must fill it with gods, big bangs and Separation trauma set in symbols taken as reality itself. Thought cannot leave the mind that thinks it. But we can be-live it we can and have.

Some words of wisdom from Sanuel Beckett:

Down in the hole, lingeringly, the gravedigger puts on the forceps.

There’s history enough in “Waiting For Godot” to go around to everyone – especially in Lucky’s soliloquy (which the above quote is not part of).

We must always be careful, though, when touting the “present” as the be all and end all. Think of it this way: when we leave this world, we take with us one thing and one thing only: our past. And in a couple generations, no one will ever again remember our past – because we took it with us. We removed it from “history.”

The past, because it’s always over and done with, is always “past perfect.”

Fruit flies, common or mutant, are much more ‘in tune’ than us.
They exist in the Now, so they have no history and no future, just like a newborn baby.
For humans to cope in this mad, mad world we have to learn about the past and the future, but the trick is, not to let our minds dwell in those non existent ‘places’
Here and Now.
That is all there really is.

There is in fact more to life than life here on Earth (and I’m most definitely not any sort of ‘christian’…). There is proven to be more.;.. for, after the immensely illusory event that’s wholly incorrectly termed ‘death’, we all return to the proven to exist Spirit dimension of this in fact multi-dimensional cosmos.

There are 20+ (twenty+…) different categories of the multi-faceted evidences which prove that we do all survive (in our eternal, immortal soul/spirit body form; which is what literally animates our physical body ‘coat’, and has been seen by countless numbers of people around the world who are lucky enough to possess the spiritual gift of clairvoyant vision) the wholly illusory death of our physical body ‘coat’.

I’ve been a properly-informed Spiritualist for 28 years. And there are literally countless millions of other properly-informed, spiritually-enlightened people around the world who also are fully aware that the actual nature of ‘death’ is so very different to what it merely appears to be. Those countless millions include numerous scientists, doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, lawyers, etc etc.

A newborn baby does have a past (for we’re, each of us, an eternal soul who has already lived many, many previous lifetimes). And we will all live many, many future lifetimes.

What I stated in my post of just over 2 hours ago happens to be 100% factual truth… as you too could know, if you carried out some in-depth, scholarly research into the subject. There are many, many thousands of high-quality, scholarly books written on this ultimate truth of existence, and a large percentage of them have been written by the numerous properly-informed, spiritually-enlightened scientists, doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, lawyers, etc etc, that I mentioned in my earlier post…

Uninformed, closed-minded sceptics of this vital truth of existence are choosing to reject the biggest, most important truth that exists.
And, on the eventual day on which you do what is so very incorrectly termed ‘die’, you’ll discover that what I said was indeed the factual truth.

Hi Paul,

Yes, I’m aware that literally everything is happening at the same time. Everything is simultaneous. Most Spiritualists are aware of that fact.

I mentioned in my post of yesterday (above) that we are, each and every one of us, an eternal soul, and that each soul lives many, many lifetimes. Well, it’s also a fact that those lifetimes are all taking place simultaneously. So, whilst we’re each living our current lifetime, the soul that we each are is living different lifetimes, in different time periods. For the thing which we call ‘time’ is a dimension. And all souls’ different lifetimes are lived in different time dimensions, all simultaneously. This is one of the many known spiritual truths of existence.

But that does not change the fact that the deep, underlying truth is that ‘time’ (as we perceive it, here on Earth) does not actually exist (from a factual, spiritual perspective): that all ‘times’/all ‘events’ are taking place simultaneously, even though we don’t realise it, from where we all reside at the present moment!

Truth, like Life and Love, is Now Christine
Facts and living are in the past, present and future. They are projections of the mind.
They may be true, but they are not THE Truth.
‘Be still, and know that l (the being in each body) am God’
Not ‘the’ God or ‘a’ God but the realisation of God, which is Love, Life and Truth.
All the rest; death, spirits, previous lives, are just entertainment for our voracious minds. They are not here and Now. They are distractions from Truth.

Sounds a bit like Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab.

My college microbiology teacher opened his course by describing what happens to a sterile test tube of “broth” after it is inoculated with a loop of bacteria. If left alone, they eventually overpopulate and die in their own waste.

In the interest of living longer than the fruit fly I’d advise watching the banks closely– in fact might be a good idea to keep a lot of small denomination bills on hand. And if paper money should tank I’ve always thought that coins might last a bit longer.

Tucker Carlson recently gaily reminded us that since the pipes blew up it’s possible that certain cables might. Now why do you spose he did that? Hint, hint: Fox’s #1 stockholder is Vanguard & Black Rock is about 5th.

That means Tucker’s playing “good cop” to mislead those who escaped the story “Ukraine good & Russia bad”. That’s right, tucker’s preparing us for a grid takedown by prepping us w the “right” answer. I’m sure you remember Schwab predicting such a problem too.

Fruit flies make an amazing anti swat zig when you try to hit them in flight. Way better than a house fly at avoiding a kitchen towel traveling at the speed of sound. But they are so easy to trap. Won’t be long before they rewrite the laws so they can (legally) insert insect genes into humans. That zig gene could go a long way in the ultimate fighting circuit. And it won’t even require the involvement of one’s consciousness. Kind of like Tourette Syndrome. You automatic zig whenever needed.
