The Wind Is As Essential As Sunshine

getting out in the fresh air is all about the body and soul getting sunshine as it is experiencing wind.  think of plants. without wind they don’t grow as great as those with wind.  direct open fresh air is as important as sunshine.

the Hemingway Diet

I remember things so much better when I have physical movement in the remembering of that thought or information.  I have written volumes but i’m about to reduce it down to the hemingway diet.  you get a stairmaster, a library card and you check out a hemingway book , read while exercising 45 minutes a day, get a new book, keep reading and do this diligently, daily.

It’s All About Twitter – Free Speech – Jump the facebook ship

Twitter - It's All About Free Speech

Yeah I just tweeted that facebook is like a full time job, very exhausting and kinda like keeping up with emails.  You can’t stand it after a while.

Stuffed Email Inbox

Are You Being Bogged Down By Digital Clutter & Responsibilities

You’re a slave to it.  It’s like making you attached to your computer like a ball and chain.  Twitter on the other hand is footloose and fancy free.  The ultimate freedom of expression experience.  Free to speak your mind, any time, any where 24/7.  Now you can even record your voice, send music, send video perhaps the only thing you can’t send is smell.  and you don’t have to be all uptight about who you know.  Yeah it’s interesting to see who follows you and who you follow but we’re not obsesessed with it like people on linkedin or facebook.  If you’re catching my drift I’m about to do what I despise most… I want Twitter to be cool and rule.  That’s right there will eventually make it obsolete and desperate to reinvent itself.  In the meantime I’m going to enjoy it for what it is.  My up to date news source for both hyperlocal news, national and international.  Think about – there is no newspaper or tv station or website on the planet that can bring that deep level of communication on a grandiose scale.  I’m actually thinking about jumping of the facebook ship.

Jumping the facebook ship

Jumping the facebook ship

I don’t see how facebook could proceed  providing mini websites for people because even now it’s complicated to change those templated pages.  it doesn’t allow for creativity.  you have to give people creativity to create and give them  their own space without frames and templates.  give total freedom of speech and then give them a paintbrush.  Google you dropped the ball on your Google Web Pages – was that what it is called?  i don’t even remember now, they were/are totally free websites with fairly simple pages to have plenty of freedom to express yourself individually with many types of media.  Just like your blogspots.  I prefer those over wordpress and they show up better in the search results.  I wish I created this blog on that format.  this technically has many functions which allow for SEO but because Google controls search their algorithm doesn’t allow these to show up very high.

Alright let me get back to twitter.  Basically my twitter is set up with different personalities/categories/verticals that aggregate content from the web from a filtered audience.  When I’m in the mood for silicon valley purple cow disease or something funny (@chelseahandler, @chuckhandler, @kevinnealon) to personal stuff, twitter is my filter and generally links are endorsed and more credible.  I get emails all the time from people who are pissed off from reading an email that say 30 million Mexicans are living in LA garages to palatial prisons that we think we’re paying for in the USA only to find out these prison pictures we’ve been seeing are located in Austria. Generally my twitter information is very accurate and i can follow people i know are legitimate experts in their field.  i’d forgo the blogger and look for key tweeters to provide content on newspaper sites.  live feeds and up to date information in a multimedia format, not just words that are sometimes too long to read.  i like the 140 character limit, give me the update make it short and quick.

I predict there will be a big surge on twitter once people get unable to handle the volume of responsibility that’s with facebook once you succumb.  To be honest with all the great apps out there for twiiter management i can’t think of how to make it more perfect and keep it’s freedom. It is perfect – the only problem is the business model?  What is it without completely ruining – it’s almost like this should be the one thing the government does subsidize – free speech! id let my tax dollars pay for advertising free, censor free – free speech.  I love you twitter!

Okay now after some Lemon Skunk,

Lemon Skunk

Lemon Skunk - pretty

thank you very much, my mind is wondering why we have amendments to the constitution.  Like the first amendment.  Freedom of religion, of speech, of the press, to assemble, and to petition

Why did we need to add these after the constitution?  i thought this is what the constitution was all about – but these needed to be spelled out – this is not what my country intended for me? what did they intend for me?   i must get knowledge.

Does a thought leave a carbon footprint?

Oh yeah so a bowl full of Green Crack later I’m enjoying the twitter prose of @dannydanko and realizing how much I miss the power of the word and especially the written word. Authors full of notepads with page after page of voracious outpourings of words from their brains. Or sometimes the empty notebooks longing for some covering ink to hide the pain of a glaring exposed blank page.

Laws

Our Laws Need To Be Written On Something Permanent

Then came the thought about laws and how they’re recorded. Most of the history of civilizations we have learned the most about had it written in stone. Yes, literally stone. Even after global warmings and shifts in nature we can uncover hidden civilizations and their history because they left their story. Then in the dark ages and the iron age ( i never could figure out the iron age in history) we didn’t record their history by the written word. We recorded it by the weapons/tools they created because they were illiterates and didn’t record things in stone and paper was not a respected record. They lived in the moment because life was hard and all you thought about was survival. Not like in Egyptian times where people had more time to think. The amount of thinking time versus survival time in a culture is in proportion to it’s success and longevity.

Religion seems to surpass the need for something to be written but then you rely on the word of followers who give their own spin. the only thing that doesn’t require recording is the real truth of the universe. Once you have an understanding of what this is you require no physical proof. Understanding which is intangible is realized.

Very few people are enlightened and therefore you need a society with laws. Recently (300 years or so, actually much longer) we have been writing laws on paper. For the most part paper is a very week physical representation for societal laws but it’s been working, animal skins lasted slightly longer. What happens now when paper is no longer used? I want to know that important parts of civilization are permantly recorded and can be instantly accessed. Like human DNA which tells a great biologic history. I want to know about human events and life. It could all be gone because none of it is put on permanent chips or something. Actually the answer lies deep with us. there is a tiny micro atom (name not discovered yet) that houses all information about the universe past and present material and (wait a minute, does a thought leave a carbon footprint?). This is the same energy unit that the Bhagavad gita talked about. This micro atom is indestructible and enters a life form for a period of time. The human body on earth is ore of a delight because they are a bit closer to who they are but still not even close. They do inhabit most life forms to some degree they are like worker ants to the queen bee. they inhabit life forces to send back information to the main intelligence which is actually nonexistent and cycles back to the inhabitants. That’s why the universe is limitless. It’s like a fat person. the body will keep building an an infrastructure to house the bigger body and the support systems necessary to support it. in the natural world certain bodily functions give out, in the universal world they can’t they are too smart and too powerful.

Anyway i want to talk to and meet the unbelievable writers of today. i want to meet you in a medical marijuana collective where we are free. That’s kinda why i don’t want marijuana legalized, i like the “very few restrictions” it has now. Its like it left up to the locals to duke it out on a local level without big government interfering. The problem is it doesn’t have much money behind it at a local level, you don’t have cool dispensaries with a cool clientele that is proud to be a member, everything has to be kept too hush hush and it doesn’t allow for social aggregating and communing ideas, art, poetry, writing. Can you imagine cannabis bars like in amsterdam along adams ave. in san diego – totally cool as hell. that’s how older cities like brooklyn and detroit and buffalo will rebound. allow the consumption of cannabis, grow the greatest strains and lure the artists. make it cool to live there because of the freedom of expression.. it’s the 60’s all over but this time the 1Numbers are armed with the wisdom and knowledge of those 60′ folks the baby boomers. they totally connect to the baby boomers. the twenty somethings are an awesome generation of free thinkers who are restudying the cores of the american constitution. they’ve seen more immigrants than back in the late 18oo’s early 1900’s think about that.

You Can Test Positive For Drugs If You Drink Water

drugs in our drinking water

Turn on the Drugs!

Yes if you drink tap water you are much more likely to test positive for drugs.  This can affect your chances of being hired, getting insurance and much more.  It is a proven fact that our water systems are polluted with drugs.  With the billions of tons of drugs injested in the United States all of those toxins are being flushed out of our bodies into the environment for exposure to everyone including plants and animals.

Drugs in the Drinking Water

You can test positive for drugs if you drink water. That's everyone ... right?!

The laws need to be changed to protect the innocent.  Stop drug testing employees.  The environment is polluting our bodies and these tests are inaccurate.
