WAMU - Trail 0f Blood - Chapter Five

Captain: What was that?

First Mate: It was WAMU! The beast surfaced and slammed into our rudder!

Captain: Any damage?

First Mate: No, problems at the helm sir!

Captain: It's getting desperate, we need to be careful, the beast could still take us down.

First Mate: She's gone under Captain, off port side.

Captain: We won't lose her now. Just follow the trail of blood my boy. Follow the trail of blood.


Explanation: Washington Mutual jacked my credit card rate to 30% after I went over the limit by less than six dollars. If they hadn't been so damned greedy I would have continued paying them high interest on my credit card debt for years, but this insult has led to my decision to pay this evil credit card company off.

I See Your Light

I See Your Light
by jeromeprophet

One line to line - into this rhyme
Within this life, within this kind
I see your light - your karmic might
You are sublime, oh how you shine

You're blinding me with truth divine
Your light reveals what's most unkind
My sins and fears - My greed and tears
I'd close my eyes, but you'd still be here
.

Frangel by JP
.
You fly so right, into the sky
Like a firefly upon the mind
You are so bright within my eyes
A beam of light into this time
.
I'll yield to thee my angel light
My sacred right, My guiding light
I'm saved in thee, my precious knight
My shining way - my path to right
.
.
END.

Our Golden Years - Peak Oil Turmoil


What Is Peak Oil

We're at the beginning of the end of the era of cheap oil.



The Economic Impact

If we don't do something soon we can expect a global economic collapse.

Teacher Aaron Wissner talks about how peak oil is likely to cause economic downturn, recession and/or recession. Peak oil is not just about gas or oil prices. Oil is what determines how the global economy functions. With less oil, there will be less growth

You Get What You Need


Rolling Stones - You Can't Always Get What You Want

I saw her today at a reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime you find
You get what you need

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need


Swedish Fairy Princess Anna Lys Visits A Rose Bush

Oh yeah, hey hey hey, oh...

And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"
Sing it to me now...

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need
Oh baby, yeah, yeah!

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
I said to him

You can't always get what you want, no!
You can't always get what you want (tell ya baby)
You can't always get what you want (no)
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need
Oh yes! Woo!

You get what you need--yeah, oh baby!
Oh yeah!

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

You can't always get what you want (no, no baby)
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need, ah yes...

WAMU Sighted Again!


Another Strike Into The Side Of The Evil Beast!

"Swerve me? The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails, whereon my soul is grooved to run. Over unsounded gorges, through the rifled hearts of mountains, under torrents’ beds, unerringly I rush! Naught’s an obstacle, naught’s an angle to the iron way!"

- Moby Dick, Herman Melville -


The WAMU Saga Continues


First Mate: Another hit Captain!

Captain: The waters are bloodied now!

First Mate: She's gone under again Captain.

Captain: Don't worry boys! We'll push this infernal creature towards the coast, and trap it in shallow waters we will. Then we'll strike it twice more within a fortnight.

Harpoon Boy: Yes Captain!

Captain: What's you standin about for boy? Ready us two more harpoons!


Harpoon Boy: Yes Captain!

Captain: As God is my witness this beast shall not see past the end of Summer..,

First Mate: Yes My Captain! We've got it now!

Captain: We do indeed boy, we do indeed.


Explanation

Washington Mutual decided to jack my annual interest rate up to thirty percent after I went over my credit limit by less than six dollars. So I've decided to eliminate this evil card from my life, and should have it paid off by the end of August.

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle


Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle

Now you might be asking why I posted this video about the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Just think of my blog as a diary. If you want to come along, and follow me, where I've been, where I am at, where I'm going, then just keep peaking into my diary.

Now here's my thought stream on this subject - why I believe it is important. Let's see if I can express it.

You may look at MIT Professor and Physicist Walter Lewin's video on Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, and wonder why little laser beam and some dots on a wall matter. This is an excellent start.

The crux of what is going on is this - the more one tries to measure (force) the exact location of a quanta by "treating it as" either a particle, or a wave the more that quanta will defy measurement.

In this case we have particles streaming through a narrow slit. We begin to narrow the slit, smaller, and smaller, and smaller. As we INCREASE the precision of our measurement of the particles traversing the slit and hitting the other side, a funny thing happens - the particles begin acting more like waves.

With particles we can "know" an exact location of a strike against the wall, but with waves we can not.

The particles seem to be eluding our attempt to measure them. Now we needn't worry, for we're not saying the particles are intelligent, or magical, but we are illustrating an incredibly profound characteristic of reality - Uncertainty.

Now you may ask, but what is the big deal? You may say, I program computers, or sell insurance, or wire up homes for cable television - what does this have to do with anything - especially since I've lived so long without knowing anything about this up until now. And that is a valid question.

First this phenomena doesn't take place just with photons, but with other elementary particles as well. These particles are the fundamental building blocks of "reality".

Second, despite ongoing debate, there is no evidence, none whatsoever, that the process which drives what we observe in the laser experiment takes place ONLY at quantum scales. As an example the little desktop experiment is not being conducted at quantum scales is it?

Ask yourself this - how do the electrons "know" to act like waves when "too much" information is being measured about their specific particle-like location?

You believe you know the answer - Diffraction you say! Diffraction is a process, but it doesn't explain why this process takes place.

There are many other experiments which don't use controls which would involve diffraction - and yet similar illustrations of the Uncertainty Principle result.

So Diffraction is not the explanation, it is only a modality.

So let's go back to the question - why?

This is a subject I think about, now you should too, because it has very broad implications.

Let us consider - what if I were similar to an electron, or photon?

And my life if seen as a single object (seen as a whole from the beginning to end in four dimensional space-time) - a vibrating - particle or perhaps a string - capable of being in different states simultaneously (i.e., superposition) but only collapsing into a wave form upon observation?

What would that say about the power of the observer?

And what if any of the Many Worlds versions of any of the Multiverse Theories are correct?

If you don't know what I'm talking about run some Google searches. You may just be glad that you did.

Springfield, Illinois Lightning Burst Video


Jerome, Illinois Lightning Flash Video

This is a very short video of just one flash of lightning, slowed down so that it shows the multiple flashes, and multiple paths that can make up one flash of lightning.

Many thunderstorms have visited the Midwest this year.

By the way, what if I told you that if you don't memorize the specific pattern of the lightning's path - that if you play the video over again - that the path can change?

What would you say to that?

And would you be disturbed to know that the universe works this way?
