Why do Peacock Spiders dance?

Sylvia Shawcross

We’re not divided enough. Surely there are more things for us to fight each other over? We’ve got vaccines, gender, wars, race, food, ageism, mathematics, territories, immigration, abortion, religion, economics, politics, nationalities…

…I mean, is that all there is?

There has GOT to be more than just these tired old things? Historically we’ve done all these things before and always with the same outcomes.

For example, the inflation economics and the outrageous gender stuff—we did all that back in the Weimar Republic. All we need now is the humiliation of losing the war with Ukraine and we’re ripe for electing Hitler 2. Almost as if it was orchestrated. But never mind all that. That was pretty obvious after a bit of thinking for most of us. (The moral being, never elect a person in a landslide who promises to fix everything. Pick that other one. So what if they’re not good lookin’ and rather tepid. They’re bound to be better than Hitler 2. Hopefully… But of course by the time that’s done all the wealth will have been stolen and the sad little worn bits of leftover stuff is all we’ll ever have. For a long long long time. Do not sob into your afternoon tea over this. It just makes it salty and no one will care anyway. It is just what it is.)

But of course, that still doesn’t solve the problem of not having anything new or interesting to fight over, does it? This time, we should fight over something that at least makes it a bit fun like pro-wrestlers wearing capes and wigs and fluorescent tattoos and playing to the crowd with magnificent grunts. I just can’t think what it could be that would divide us any further than we are now on our way to an inevitable “insert regime name here.”

Now, despite all these efforts to divide us into hostile and cantankerous groups, it still really comes down to the individual thinking about things to shape what it is that divides us. And then, all these like individuals get together and create a group that starts making placards and marching and screeching. That’s usually the way it works. Some would say this is unlike now where the groups were formed and then assigned before the individual had a thought or two about their own position.

So the point would be what exciting fun ridiculous thing might an individual think right now that could cause a group to form around it that will keep us happily divided into new things? At least something that doesn’t involve the psychological or physical torture of children for once.

Let’s think about that. Now, I’m only doing this in the interest of the zeitgeist of the age of division. We can’t have the world agree on anything. This would foil all the efforts being done at the moment by those who seek to foil us all. And it seems there are many who seek to do that but that’s another day and another discussion. The important thing here is how at least do we make all the misery of division entertaining and wholly enjoyed by all? If we’re all going to be going down with the Titanic anyway?

I think I have it. We should have thought of this sooner. Mostly because we weren’t even paying attention to ourselves. What happens every time there is an emergency or a threatened emergency in the first world? Every single time. Without fail. It is a deep psychological and social indicator that no one understood really until now. What happens? There’s a run on bathroom tissue.

And what do we fight about when it comes to bathroom tissue? Should it roll over or under? It doesn’t matter what the original inventor said because if he had been right we wouldn’t still be fighting about it. Inventors never seem to understand that once they’ve invented something people will find a way to completely ignore them and do what they will for the sake of their own pleasure and profit. That happened for example with gene technology and atom splitting which is why we are in a Cold War again with biological weapons simmering on horizons.

So we need to fight about bathroom paper. All we need to do now is create a group of unders and a group of overs and start the madness. It’ll be great fun. Think of the streamers at the revolutions!

Yeah I know. People have been throwing toilet paper streamers for years. But they’ve not done it with enough hostility and division. They did not yet figure it out like we have now, of course. All throwing must be done with mayhem and misery and maliciousness. So we can laugh.

Throw those rolls! Get out there people! Throw it under! Throw it over! Just don’t overthrow it. I don’t think. That might be something we could disagree on but we’ve done THAT before too.

Next time we may discuss the immigrant invasion of Danaus plexippus to the northern hemisphere every dang year and what we might be able to do about it.

Oh, here’s a bloomin’ earworm because I had to put in a Peacock Spider somewhere for the sake of the title of this piece.

Depends. Toddlers love over the top. They are adept at emptying an entire roll in just a few minutes while uncontrollably laughing as it piles up on the floor. Border collies love it the opposite. During a zoomies fit an adolescent collie can drag an entire roll throughout the house in no time. So it depends. If you have both in your house at the same time, it doesn’t matter.

re ‘divisions’ – most of the things that divide us are completely created by the ‘divide and conquer’ deep state – but there is one very important division that we need to be on the right side of if we want to save our country and world – the division between ‘they who would rule us forever by any means required in their neo-feudalist society’ vs ‘we the non-elite who do NOT want to be ruled forever by these people. We truly do need to start understanding this, and start getting these divide-and-conquerers out of our governments.

and once again, another thoughtless passby reference to ‘Hitler!!’ as exemplarific of ‘the worst possible thing you can imagine about anything!!!. In actuality, of course, the ‘Weimar situation’ was not caused by stupid Germans, it was a direct result of the insane reparations imposed on Germany by the Versailles Treaty. A few years later, as everyone in the world seemed incapable of doing anything about the ‘terrible great depression’, Hitler convinced the Germans to give him a chance – and surprise surprise!!! – Hitler quickly took Germany out of the banker-caused depression by kicking the bankers out of Germany, and restored their pride by taking back the bits of Germany taken by the same treaty. So actually, we kind of do need to elect another leader like Hitler, to kick the deep state out of our governments. Or wait – the US actually did something like that a few years… Read more »

Its very simple. The toilet paper goes over the top. Do it. No more fighting. Just kidding. The reason why there is always fighting is because that is what life is. The program behind all of your activity is aimed at one thing – to get resources, secondary is to protect the resources you have acquired from being got by something else. It is the very essence of being. The reason why there is any such thing as cooperation (also known as love, freindship, community etc.) is because evolution has resulted in favourable outcomes for those who cooperate not because there is anything moral or good about it but because it is the most pragmatic way to acquire or protect resources to enable survival with the goal of continued consumption and transgenerational consumption. There is no sense to any of it, no moral high ground and no way of ending… Read more »

Sure, anything can be used to divide human beings, for example toilet paper use. And when there’s division based on toilet paper, two groups of people being created, even more division is created because not everyone uses toilet paper. So there are actually many groups created while only two on the surface. There are babies who are always excluded from these divisions. And there may be the majority of the people who in fact do not use toilet paper at all. Some of them may use leaves, some of them may use sticks, some of them may use water, and so on, many different groups.

But anything to divide humanity. It’s not real division, of course, but forced and manipulated illusions.

It’s only when people believe these illusions to be real, they may make them real.

Well I think it’s finally happened. Someone dies and not only is the cause of death not mentioned but the fact that it’s not mentioned isn’t mentioned:

“Bristol band The Pop Group’s Mark Stewart dies aged 62

Being divided and being scared is the required objective.

I was required to sit another of those wretched online tests for a hygiene certificate and it was full of fear mongering propaganda about how viruses were on the increase. It also highlighted the innumerable ways you could catch one and die horribly. It struck me as the kind of thing that you’d take in your stride and not give a shit about at one time. But now after the whole lockdown experience, the merest and most banal activities have become so arduous. This is what the rulers are working towards: a society in which everyone stays under the bed and watches the designated “peoples’ heroes” going through their plastic protests to implement an agenda the rulers have already decided on.

There is a solution to every problem. The solution is always the exact opposite of a problem, and so the solution to fear is fearlessness.

Have no fear. Don’t take fear. Do not comply with it. Do not do what it says. Because fear is nothing when we don’t believe it.

Logic works every time.

So, using logic, freedom is the solution to the lack of it; truth is the solution to lies; and good is the solution to evil.

A highly creative and amusing effort as always Sylvia. I was getting worried that you had gone all politically correct by referring to that essential commodity as “bathroom tissue”. I had never heard of the term before moving to Canada from more down-to-earth, Africa. Then you redeemed yourself by calling it by its proper name – toilet paper. Far be it for me to criticize such an accomplished writer as yourself, but there is yet another variant to the roll over – roll under argument. An argument that carried too far could risk serious injury. You may be too young to remember as I do, going to elderly relatives’ houses and having to use a rustic outside toilet (certainly not a bathroom) variously called a long drop, outhouse, bog, PK or worse depending in which part of the world one was located. Most of these facilities did not boast the… Read more »

Their pencil stick arms and legs may be precisely why they are seeking validation of their infantile bodies… but take away their skateboards and pepper spray, their hoodies and their Soros pay, buses and accommodation, and they will be swatted like flies.

There is something about Syl Shawcross that cheers me up. At first, I thought the Aussie Spider – with such brilliant colours had been photoshopped, or at least chromatically enhanced.

Why, post-scamdemic and inevitably post-jab, do so many people who revelled in both instantly hate your presence if they are of no immediate use to you? It’s a shop-floor issue, mostly; but they’ve been trained to think everyone else is utterly helpless, that we cannot read store signs or find our items; and where has this time come from for all this, if they offer this ‘assistance’ to everyone? Things are definitely slower in the retail/gig/service market, despite widespread digitisation. But politely decline their advance? “I’m just trying to help” In my view the lockdowns, the return after and the retardation of the general public has definitely sparked an epidemic of narcissism- most of these clowns didn’t want to return to work in the first place, but now that they are- oh boy, it’s their Hell and you’re playing by their rules, that’s why there are posters everyone pre-empting customer’s… Read more »

What’s motivating people is not what they know, but what they fear. Or, more squishy but accurate, how much they fear.
That would seem to be the dividing line, if one looked for “the zeitgeist of the age of division.”

We huddled masses, whether normies or habitués of subterranean speakeasies, cannot connect without first unwinding this fear, which the goverments and their enablers – such as Susan Michie, Communist Party of Britain (still awaiting their mea culpa) – carefully construct and impose upon the people – as if they are the chosen, the technocratic master race, above the rest of us, like the egg-head accolytes of the shaven Schwab.

True, it’s the zeitgeist but maybe we’re just told that’s what’s happening. People are now schooled to steer clear of opinion for fear of offending another. The state corporate media urges “trusted voices” – the appeal to authority.

Are we really polarised — the very word implies there are only two points of view, the reds and the blues, and simultaneously that this is a problem: that the natural order of this is for everyone to think identically — or is polarisation the new boogeyperson (should that be persox?) which is just another way of promoting group think and compliance?

Its the media leading the charge. A typical headline will include words like “Fury as such and such….”, its all zero sum, ‘fight to the death’ type stuff. If you immerse people in this environment then its going to wash off on some, eventually leading to a breakdown in public behavior and so yet more fuel for the headlines. It would be helpful if journalists learned to use English properly. But then I’d guess that they’re on the way out, being replaced by cheaper and far more productive software (serves them right…..). As for TPing houses I first saw this when I moved to the US. Its a sign of prosperity (and soft toilet tissue). In the world I grew up in the budget was quite tight so the idea of buying a couple dozen rolls to waste throwing over things never occurred to us. This might seem a bit… Read more »

There is no denying that the victors write the history. However, Hitler started WW2 in Europe as soon as he used the military to take land that he asserted belonged to Germany. Even though not shots were fired initially, it was still an act of aggression. There are many facts about Hitler that can be perceived as him being a “good guy”. However the end result of world war, the murder of innocent people, because they were “defective”, or dared to speak against the National Socialists, the democide of whole regions, the destruction of Germany, etc. etc. etc., wipe out any single or multitude of things he did that could be categorized as good.

Sorry to say that the House of Commons had only three (Conservative) MPs during the debate. And had no Labour MPs whatsoever!

How could we possibly leave out the Labour Party! These people are just bunch of middle-class chancers on the make

It seems to be entirely possible that these people have forgotten that they are to represent the people who elected them.

The Latest Fake Trial Today it is being reported that FoxNews settled with Dominion, agreeing to pay almost $800 million AND admitting it lied. Which is all you need to know to know it was faked. This is legal news for the legally impaired. Settlements don’t work like this. You settle so that you don’t have to admit guilt. Remember all those other cases you have read about in the news, where one side agreed to settle, and they say “all terms of the settlement are private. Party X admits no guilt So you should be asking what Fox got in this “settlement”. You will say it avoided going to court, but Fox would have wanted to avoid going to court why? To avoid having to pay a huge settlement and to avoid admitting it was wrong. But now we are supposed to believe it did both. Doesn’t fit the… Read more »

What ever happened to the mail-in ballots? Why did that story get dropped?

“You would have to be a complete moron to believe elections are free of nefarious interference.” >>> Too true for most… Good one…

So if the voting system was legit, would Miles Mathis still believe in the political system? Seems like this is all just cover for the bigger picture, which is the political system, not voting machines and election rigging by the two oligarchy controlled political parties.

Indeed. In 2017 when the Department Homeland Security staged a coup against democracy and arrogated to itself control of the US electoral system (based on an alleged Russian threat that has been admitted by the Democrats to be manufactured out of whole cloth by their own operatives – Hamilton 68) as is it was “critical infrastructure” it becomes dangerous (Russian) disinformation to question “our election integrity.” Just inferring that Dominion might tip the scales is tantamount to domestic terrorism.

Disinformation is, of course, whatever the PTB say it is.

The odd thing is that Fox called Arizona for Biden in Nov 2020 ridiculously early – and was effectively part of the same gaslighting operation as Dominion to convince the American population that a man with dementia who barely left his basement overturned Trump’s massive rallies to gain the most votes in history. Just believe… cue The Polar Express soundtrack… So why settle? Did Rupert Murdoch, 92, simply not want to testify or was Fox concerned that the case would highlight its own role in the 2020 election – the Arizona call which caused many Fox viewers to abandon the network? Was $787 million a small price to pay to avoid further damage to the brand… rather than an admission of Dominion’s claims? Given the corrupt judiciary which refused even to hear a challenge to the 2020 result, it is no surprised that in the Dominion case the judge made… Read more »

I wonder more about the Alex Jones huge financial loss. I studied the Sandy Hook “event” from day one, and I would literally bet the farm that the school had been closed for years and that not one child died on that day. So why did Jones lose the case? Some researchers of high repute claim that Jones had been controlled opposition from the getgo, and the answer may well be the same as for your Fox News example. The other possibility is that the jury was rigged in advance air tight. Proving that the school had been closed for years due to asbestos contamination would be an instant slam dunk. It was all about a gun grab by the Fast and Furious Obama administration.

What divides us is apathy.
What unites us is empathy.
Now, we’ve just gotta turn that ‘a’ into an ‘em’.

Easier said than done.

A song of empathy:

No gender dysphoria there. How piquant to choose the village people for the aural annelida.
