    Sorry for the angry outburst i had just now villagers, i did not mean to spoil everybodys good times, but i had to vent this.

    So to make up for that i have a very funny weird story from yesterday( at least, we, me and my coworkers thought it was really hilarious with hindsight)

    Three times a day we meet with eachother to discuss whats going on with whom and how to proceed from there, we do this in an office, usually someone, or more clients who are completely wasted have a laugh at us and press their drunk faces of butts against the window to show their utmost appriciation for our efforts to brightern up their days. .

    Just to clarify who lives in the homeless shelter, drunks, misfits, peeps with just a stroke of bad luck, psychiatric patients beyond treatment( they have to live somewhere right?) amongst those psychiatric patients are, borderline personalities, very human beings who suffer from schizofrenia, paranoia, abuse alcohol and hard dope to more or less medicate themselves and the always intereresting multiple personality disorder folks, and very often these people have to deal with a combination of all of the above. ( pretty bad right, but only when you know you are sick, if you dont know you will probably have a blast with ticking people of in very bizarre ways and dont care about the consequences of it, GREAT).

    Well, we were having our little meeting session and a client who will not be named, pressed his big funny hairy ungroomed head against the window whilst talking to himself( as he usually does), suddenly he looked very scared into the office and started screaming and pointing into the office and was yelling, NONONO dont do it, thats dangerous, help help somebody do something, dont you see it, look, look.

    We were a bit surprized by this, because this was not his usual unusual behaviour and we looked around in the office to get him at easy and play along with him.

    In a second he picked up a bicycle a tossed it through the window, into the office, glass everywhere, bike on my desk, we all big eyes are almost crapped ourself.

    ........... why did you do that? Whats wrong with you, thats dangerous ....... explain please.

    Now remember,........... has a multiple personality dissorder, has schizofrenia, hallucinates and a few other diagnosis behind his name.

    Because we were a bit shocked and of course a bit angry with him and (sigh, the third window this week) .......... burst into tears( snot running down his messy mustache)fell on his knees and said very sincere and childlike, you did not see him, i yelled at him, he was trying to push the button, you would have been blown up by an atomic bomb, i saved your lives and now you are angry with me, i cant do anything right.

    We could not punish him, ponder on this one, he has schizofrenia( cant blame the guy for it right), he hallucinates( for all he knows is what he saw what was actually what was going on outside of our perception), and multiple personalities.

    So, WHO the he hell INSIDE OF HIS MIND ACTED with the only appropiate action TO SAVE OUR LIVES????????????

    He did a good job by saving us and the planet( as soon as we find out wich HE trew the bike we are going to buy him a beer.) all it costed was one window and one bike, thats bloody cheap for such a good deed.

    Just one of my crazy days, hope you can have a laugh about it, i guess its one of these things where you say, ya shoudda been there.

    Maybe it's my different perspective, so a collective reality check is in order. I remember a time when punishment seemed like a reasonable response to certain actions, but no more. Now, I find punishment an emotionally retarded response of revenge couched in vague meanings of justice. Like two children playing and one accidently, or intentionally, hurts the other and the response is to hit the offender.

    My son recently used my paypal account without my permission. Twice. The charges were small and I would have let him do it if he had asked me first. I wish to teach him common courtesy. In each case he emailed me and informed me of the purchases and told me he would pay me back, something I was not even remotely interested in. After the first offense, I told him it was unacceptable behavior and he must learn to control his impulsiveness as it is no excuse for bad manners. After the second offense I changed my password so that he could no longer avail himself of the privilege he was afforded. I did not do this to punish him. I did it to prevent him from a behavior that was becoming a pattern. He had been completely respectful for months, but after the first 'try' at something and not experiencing any real downside, he carelessly allowed his impulse to guide him again.

    So, he has now 'suffered' the consequences of his behavior and has not said a word about it since. He knows it was wrong, but I did not bash his self worth with punishment. I simply let him know that I had to protect myself from his impulses and he needs to learn to control himself. At some point I may change my password back and give him access again. He hasn't needed it. All his purchases are games and upgrade related. I still give him his allowance through his mother to insure he does what is expected of him in the house.

    What are others thoughts on punishment here?

    i don't call that punishment, i call that the appropriate teaching and setting of ones boundaries.
    Which is totally crucial if one is to be healthy in this chaotic, mismanaged world we are in.

    "Punishment" to me has too many negative conatations, ( my baggage) so i don't much care for the word.

    People that have not good boundaries will take as long as you are giving,
    and that can be totally exhausting and personally destructive also.

    The other thing i noticed which was a big DUH moment on my journey is that
    when i set limits people respected me more.
    Interesting that.

    The P word

    I think a lot of parents will tell their children what is inappropriate but don't always guide them about respecting themselves and others -showing them what healthy esteem is.

    Thanks, Carmody.
    this is why it came to mind and this is why I'm not sure I should be introducing the subject. Or maybe I should.

    Depends on how one wants a timeline to flow.

    I don't want to say anymore.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgVp5mCG7Bg

    Clay and Shawn Pickering, Crystal beings, masters of the reptilians?

    and:

    http://www.physorg.com/news/2012-02-...-machines.html

    Time crystals could behave almost like perpetual motion machines

    (PhysOrg.com) -- As every young science student knows, moving objects have kinetic energy. But just how much energy does something need to move? In a new study, a pair of physicists has shown that it’s theoretically possible for a system in its lowest energy state, or ground state, to exhibit periodic motion. This periodically moving system can be thought of as the temporal equivalent of a crystal, which is defined by its spatial periodicity. What’s even more intriguing about these "time crystals" is that, by exhibiting motion at their state of lowest energy, they break a fundamental symmetry called time translation symmetry and become "perilously close" to looking like perpetual motion machines.

    more from the link:

    As the physicists explained, this discovery doesn’t mean that such systems actually exist in nature, but that they can exist. At first, the physicists were somewhat doubtful that they could exist at all, since such a system would behave very similar to a perpetual motion machine, the fantasy device that could run forever with no energy input. However, building such a system may actually be less improbable than showing that it can simply exist. As the scientists noted, under the right circumstances, a superconductor almost acts in this manner because ground-state electrons can continuously loop through it.

    ~~~~~~~~


    Some things that I did not want to mention about the 'design' of the given 'optical computer, is that it would start simply, then branch out into being crystalline structures that have the capacity to develop neural flow structures within them, that could have 10's of thousands of operations or decision trees in the given cycle, and each cycle is limited only by the atomic structure.... and can be a completely different processor and design in each cycle, with many many different states available for each junction or transistor.

    The final point was that they would be self driving or self perpetuation in energetic drive. And that each 'junction' could be within multiple dimensions at any given time. Dimensional or time translation in any given junction.

    To dump the beginnings of such into the human sphere of existence.

    That is the question.

    What I was seeking when I was a child..... was a way to change the world with a word.

    This is quite close, and it is not my first instance of such a realization.

    Ripples in time and timelines.




    (what was playing in the background when I typed this up)

    I believe ......I can make the above.

    This means that others can probably do so, as well.

    Sorry for the angry outburst i had just now villagers, i did not mean to spoil everybodys good times, but i had to vent this.
    No need to be sorry at the venting 6POTB. I thought about relaying a similar personal story of how callous greedy businesses can be with the bereaved simply because they can and they don't care. Perhaps, I will tell that story at a later time. Hearing your circumstances did not bother me. In fact, it helped me to clear away more of my mists of sorrow.

    I agree completely.

    The story reminds me of many of the ludicrous tales about US servicemen and women returning home to all sorts of outlandish monetary penalties like paying for "damaged" equipment etc. Forget the horror story on getting their medical bills and conditions resulting from their "service" met.

    You know Carmody, what you are doing is the luciferian taunt
    Besides, even if you were to divulge - would I even recognize it?
    Manipulation, whether for my own good or for others' benefit is ongoing.......
    Should you wish to smash this timeline - what will be on the other side?
    Clay and Shaun Pickering - I recall listening to them - what came to my mind was "probabilities".
    I am comfortably numb.....







    Oktoberfest statistics: - Biggest party of the world. 17 days, approx 6,5 million people. That's a LOT of beer and chicken. Over 200,000 Italians visit, including 75,000 during just its second weekend. So many Italians come to the festival that the Munich police import Italian police for extra help! Mamma mia! A time and place I happily avoid.

    Regards punishment
    I do recall, as a kid, being walloped with a wooden spoon. They were very rare occasions, but memorable
    Mostly, there was respect.
    Retributive justice? Where's the measuring stick? Who made it?
    Parenting is one of the most difficult occupations entrusted to (or is that on?) humanity.
    There is no right or wrong way. Whatever you do, will be wrong in anothers' eyes.

    this is playing in my background...




    And who shall I say is calling?

    Would play a better version of it however, the German's python-like grip on copyright blah blah's remains, unwavering...
