So much Space, So much Life

UFOs, aliens, de-materialization, anti-gravity, velocities beyond that of light; it's all incredibly interesting as well as a fantastic enigma. I've just finished watching a movie on Google Videos entitled UFO: The Greatest Story Ever Denied. It documents a myriad of possible evidence, physical and spoken, that sheds some light on the existence of extra-terrestrial life, as well as the knowledge the human race currently and historically has had of life beyond our little planet.

I think it's a bit naive and downright ignorant to think that out of all the infinite space that the cosmos entails, Earth is the only planet that harbors intelligent, let alone minimally complex life. The very thought that life would be so rare is ignorant in and of itself. Life is found everywhere on this planet, even places where, by definition, it shouldn't exist.

Did you know there are tiny organisms living in sulfuric acid within most limestone caves inside of the Earth? They even consume iron, and use the element as a building block for its cellular protein! How weird is that?? Very weird, which is exactly the point. Just because it's difficult to imagine a life form that doesn't breathe oxygen and isn't bound by the traditional hierarchical consumption of sunlight (the food chain) does not rule out its existence. Some life forms even redefine what we think of as normal geometry in life.

And check this: scientists have speculated that it is not out of the realm of possibility that Venus, a planet once thought of as inhospitable for life could in fact be teeming with it!

All it takes is a bit of imagination, and suddenly the Universe seems far less lonely, and a hell of a lot more active! What a shame that humans constrain themselves through their own egocentricity without even realizing they are in their own self constructed prison. The 'normal' human is, by definition, clinically insane, ie. unreasonable, due to their own lack of understanding and subsequent denial of their own lack of understanding.

There's one last subject I'd like to touch upon. In the documentary posted above, all of the people interviewed are either highly intelligent, are in extremely high places of knowledge and responsibility, have a great amount of experience on the subject which they are discussing, or a combination of all 3 (Examples: Brigadier General, former chief executive of NSC, Astrophysicist, varying classes of military, including black ops). It seems to me that what happens all of the time is that, the public is told one story, and some time later, an alternate version of that story is revealed. When this alternate version does not bode well for the security and/or trust of persons in high power/wealth, or when this alternate version is not in accordance with the 'truth' that the public has been previously fed, it is either denied, or attacked and labeled as lunacy, quackery, foolishness, crazy in the coconut talk!

It never fails to baffle me how strongly and vehemently people will choose voluntary ignorance over facing a hard to swallow truth. Perfect example: 9/11. The evidence claiming that it was an inside job is seemingly never ending. Hours upon hours of hard evidence along with 1000's of credible sources claim that it was a set up, and instead of investigating further, people choose to deny it instead. I can't even count the number of people that have spoken to me about 9/11 truth as bogus conspiracy. When I ask them very calmly, "one piece of evidence; how do you explain Tower 7, publicly filmed falling down on its own accord through controlled demolitions, never hit by terrorists, and admittedly never attacked yet still falling down?" they respond, "I choose not to believe that." That my friends, is called voluntary ignorance, and is the most vehement form of poison that exists, for it is self administered, and costs the lives of 1000's, probably more...

"The most important thing in life is to love and be loved." Definitely, and keeping an open mind makes you much lovelier than the alternative.

Music Marchathon

Contrary to popular belief, there is no law that states that good music needs to be filled with narcissistically obsessive lyrics regarding the supreme worth of the music creator, ie. the best in the business. Nor does music require a cliche poppy sound overlayed by sentiments of feeling like a plastic bag.

Of course, there isn't any specific criteria to define good music, but before you weigh down your audio device with 16 gigs of radio fluff, check this out!

It may be the politically correct way to poke fun at midgets, but Little People is also the name of a pretty dern amazing sound engineer. I stumbled across some of his tracks after suffering serious withdrawals from cutting myself off of listening to Pretty Lights on repeat. The creator of Little People, Laurent Clerc, describes his sound as 'downtempo instrumental hip hop with beats.' The sound is extremely similar to RjD2, and just as addictive. Lucky for all of us music pirates too used to downloading free discographies of all our favorite artists to flip a few bills for the sounds that enhance our lives, Clerc gives most of his stuff away for free.

So, lock your bedroom door, open the shades, strip down to your bare white winter skin, and start swinging those limbs to the beat. I know I will:

Recent Reading

I've been reading a lot of sci-fi books lately, but not the typical star wars bang bang pshew beam me up whoa kind of sci fi, oh no! Books concerned with the Big Questions. Questions like: What constitutes self? What does eternity entail? Where did humanity come from and where is it going? Where did life
come from and where is it headed? Does free will exist? Is all of life truly relative? Is there a meaning? Is there a purpose? Are we truly separate from our surroundings? What is this...reality... that we attempt to conceptualize with limited senses and even more limited language? What is reality's limits? What is the self's limits? What is a limitation, and are there any? Why, for how long, and what the fuck is going on?!?!

This list could go on forever, literally. Instead, read some amazing stories, written so long ago, and yet still challenging the minds of Earth's wisest and most intelligent men and women. The greatest sci-fi writers, based upon the above criteria, are well known to be: Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke, and Issac Assimov. If I had it my way, which I do in the world of my blog (sweet, sweet freedom!) I would also add Philip K. Dick to the list.

So, another deep question: how about some examples of the recent stories by these amazing beings that I have read? The answer?!?!!?


Childhood's End, by Arthur C. Clarke
Stranger in a Strange Land, By Robert Heinlein
A Scanner Darkly, by Philip K Dick.
The End of Eternity, by Issac Assimov
The God's themselves, by Issac Assimov
Time Enough for Love, by Robert Heinlein
The Last Question, by Issac Assimov

I also just finished listening to the audio book Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson. Though not as philosophically deep, it is equally amazing!!

Hooray for literacy!!!

Domo Arigato Mr. Plan O' Extraveganzo: luminescent Sex

Hey, what a great idea! You can buy 15 glow stick bracelets from target for $1 (assuming everyone in your area hasn't already done so, driving supply so low that it forces speculators to compare a mere microgram of precious glowing liquid to the value of pure high phosphorous bat guano: (for those curious).

That's a pretty steep potential price, so I recommend everyone jump on this idea pronto. Let me lay it out for you:

  1. You spend anywhere from $2-$4 on glowsticks, whatever fits your price range. Just so you can get an idea of the value we are talking about here, $118.20, the average yearly salary in Sierra Leone ( will get ya 1773 glow sticks, which would last the average Luminescent Sexer a month.
  2. Rip and tear the clothes off of your lover like a rabid mongoose doing its best to remain polite at a dinner party intended solely for the worlds most wealthy snakes-- S S S S S
  3. Once you are both bare and immodest (orgies and solo masturbation work as well), begin strapping on glowsticks to each others ankles, wrists, thighs, waist, neck, forehead, or wherever else your mind may wander. Note: the more creative, the greater the fun!!
  4. Turn on some Daft Pank.
  5. Sexy Time!!! (sexy time will differ from sexer to sexer)
And there you have it. Follow these guidelines, and find out for yourself why the craze is
growing so rapidly! You'll be a glowing in no time, all the time!

Note: Wearing Daft Punk helmets during intercourse will always increase intimacy, regardless
of luminescence.

In The Beginning

I started this blog as a place to post absolutely anything and everything that I feel inspired to share. Poetry, news, opinions, facts, humor... no matter what it may be, my ultimate goal for this blog is to refrain from goals, and in doing so steer completely clear of any inhibition or restriction, even by my own subconscious doing.

So, here goes everything and anything!
