The Great British Vaccine Rollout Fraud!

I have dithered & procrastinated as to whether to write down my thoughts on these matters or otherwise. The reason for delay of course is that part of my longer term experience of meditation and the associated coaching programmes I participated in, very often ask variations on the questioning of RESOURCEFULNESS. EG. Are these thoughts, feelings, behaviours, actions resourceful?

Many examples can be found in day to day life, where we get so sucked into a debate or issue – that it effortlessly and unconsciously becomes transitioned into an issue of being Right. IE. Intransigence can set in, in terms of points of view, and then we typically carve out a position for ourselves that is regarded as unhelpful – possibly to ourselves, and more importantly – unhelpful to those who may take our contribution to debate as a valid contribution etc. how many an unwise Leader leads their followers down blind alleys, only later having to backtrack in some fashion, that brings out all and any would be an opponent or commentator or expert, with an “I told you so”, they themselves very often not necessarily being au fait with a topic and subject matter, none the less, wading in as though some all knowledgeable guru on such things.

So what is wrong with the Vaccine Rollout & why would anyone call it fraudulent?

I am sure for most of our point of views, that the energy & expenditure / investment into finding suitable vaccines for the Coronavirus has been – or can be regarded as successful, however the success of the Scientists and Pharmaceutical firms, and in turn the seeming success of the NHS in terms of Rollout, is despite or irrespective of many of the claims being made by Government – who have been over indulged in politicising all of these things, very often in terms of what would have been grabbing the headlines over the last year or two were it not for this World wide pandemic, the World is being reported as going through. IE. Huge amounts of Column inches & propaganda that would have (in normal times) been reported as Brexit related issues and matters are all being swept under the great Covid Pandemic Carpet. That is regardless of the fact that both pro Brexit and pro Remain campaigners or supporters were (to a certain degree) united in an awareness of the belief and prophecies that Brexit would have any number of assorted detrimental effects upon the United Kingdom (in the first instance) and potentially wider ramifications for the wider World in which the United Kingdom would find itself following Brexit.

So with the Pandemic, huge amounts of column inches started being given to experts in Statistics and the War Rhetoric that had served Pro Brexit Campaigners during the 2016 Brexit Campaign and intervening year Election Campaigns was immediately transferred to “The War On Covid” an enemy that in normal day to day conditions (outside of your average Laboratory) cannot be seen, only possibly witnessed (possible, though questionable folk tale diagnosis measures) or experienced.

First up, early diagnosis and deaths were occurring within other regions of the Globe, though international coverage was following these matters with a clear view , first up was Wuhan in China where deaths were said to have occurred in late 2019. Early 2020 saw China go into Lockdown and they (China) Sequencing the Virus and providing details to the Wider World. , Diagnosis of unexplained deaths started being seen in places in Europe such-as Italy and Switzerland, where the Wuhan trail was identified as being that of Global Commuters on Business Trips and Skiing Holidays and so on. IE. Modern Air Transport Routes were taking the virus Global followed by Waves of Regional outbreaks. Throughout all the early months of TV and Media Coverage – the New Populist Political Movement’s featuring Leaders such-as Donald Trump and Alexander Johnson and so on, all downplayed the virus, (possibly on the pretext of not wanting to cause Panic, Hoarding, and other detrimental outcomes, that happened anyway) and of course most populist Leaders were operating from a Libertarian Small State mindset, of non interference, and wanting to preserve all and everything to do with the Economies – that are long said to make or break how politicians and politics in general are viewed by populations etc. The United Kingdom was also still highly divided over the issue of Brexit.

So in the UK at least, much of the News Media coverage started collecting statistics as to the spread and makeup of the affected populations, and first up it was being reported that the Elderly & Ethnic Minorities were worst affected. One can well imagine huge numbers of the population breathing a sigh of relief as to not falling into those categorisations, though it also led to a level of cynicism as to why were we in the UK not going into Lockdown when International Coverage – such-as that seen from Italy, were that Italy’s Hospital’s were overflowing and unable to cope with patient numbers. Much the same is now being reported in early 2021 from India – where another populist Leader Modi – downplayed the significance of the virus etc.

I should at this point state that apart from a working break following my Father’s death in late February 2021, I have, as an individual, worked throughout all the lockdowns, wind, rain or shine, whilst many business have had to shut up shop, or enter into furlough schemes and so on. The Multi National Business I work for, actually introduced greater safety measure and procedures, and indeed more PPE (personal protective equipment) on top of the pre-existing PPE, long before the United Kingdom Government actually did anything. They hit the road running (so to speak) and obviously trust the Global International Business Intelligence that they have, over that of what might be regarded as local or regional or colloquial Politics etc.

So another of the great Learnings from various Mediation processes, procedures and principles and associated courses, was actually one of knowledge – and the deletion, distortion, generalisation of knowledge, these thing are common place throughout many a persons life, although they can also be referred to as other things – so, deletion might get called omission (for example), check them out in your favoured Thesaurus.

So what was the great omission in the statistics – that I highlighted – such-as at Guardian Online, that has continued to be omitted throughout the pandemic. Well it is a rather obvious one, though perhaps demonstrates that the State possibly knows less about the average family or group or individual in the street than many a person (with self important ego) believes them to know. The state is not one generalised generic blob, we have an NHS, we have a Tax Office, we have a Driving Licence office and a passport office and so on, IE. Whist huge amounts of data may exist (about any one individual) within the State Apparatus – their is not really a centralised “Big Brother Is Watching You” Facility. Yes some Forces such-as Intelligence Agencies can go out and get a warrant (or otherwise) and collate all these inter-related aspects of someone’s life, though all in all, unless we are operating outside of the law of the land and so on, it is only our ego and beliefs about our own importance in the World that might lead to us thinking we more important that just being 1 person in a United Kingdom population of 67,000,000 in a World population of 7,000,000,000 etc.

Anyway that Omitted Statistic that I thought should be taken into account is related to the question how long to you believe you are going to live? You can perhaps look to average life expectancy, or your own family for indicators. Many of us grow up doing history lessons where it is constantly reiterated that earlier generations of the human race, had lower life expectancies etc. and could expect to die at much younger ages. So having speculated on life expectancy you might want to then investigate population growth. We are often bombarded with age demographic generational catch-all such-as “The boomer Generation”, “Generation X”, “Millennials” and so on, that are extremely VAGUE on numbers.

My point was basically that if you investigate EG. The Boomer generation – an alleged massive increase in population growth following WWII, are you not then going to see a similar disproportionate increase in death rates at some point down the line, whether that is 60, 70, 80, 90, 100+ years later. Many perhaps reluctant to think directly on there own potential mortality or indeed that for everyone wanting some relatable “he/she died of something” statistic – immortality has yet to be achieved beyond that of Societal Fiction and Story’s and Legacy and so on. No I am not advocating “let it rip” as Prime Minister Alexander Johnson was said to have suggested in relation to the Covid Pandemic, though as many within medical circles and medical training will tell you, regardless of any number of measures used within Society and the Medical Profession to preserve and sustain life, at some point, peoples conditions and bodily health etc. will simply be beyond that of what Science can achieve in maintaining life etc. Discussion for Moralists and Ethicists perhaps, though the only response someone gave me on this topic and subject was that people were on average losing some possible 11 years of life expectancy. I still think a gap clearly exists in the data, and the assigning of death to Covid, a distraction from more basic factors such-as Old Age – as was given for Prince Phillips Death.

Is that all? No unlike many a person, I have continued to work throughout the pandemic and have typically seen online behaviour from other peoples and persons who are under lockdown, that suggests that the United Kingdom has something of a high level of peoples and persons who have gradually become ever more stir crazy, and many of them are seemingly oblivious to just how strange or weird and so on, that they have become, in some of there outpourings and so on. Along with this has been the constant TV and Media coverage of Downing Street and Press Conferences, all seemingly geared – SECRETLY TOWARD THE BREXIT PROJECT, Whilst giving PRETENCE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC.

The Narrative is one of “We are all in this together” though as someone who has continued to work, and ignored much of the Narrative, in preference to my Meditative Lessons and Learnings, and so on. Much of the nonsense is just that – nonsense. This idea that all should put aside differences and come together presenting a United Brexit Front oops Covid Front – as though the very many toxicities and lies and huge amounts of prejudice that some of us have experienced throughout our lives, and more recently in relation to the Brexit debates are all water under the Bridge.

This is especially true when you see all the positivity around the success of the NHS in relation to the Covid-19 Vaccine rollout – where I have typically been caught in observation of statistics from Downing Street that do not match the “on the ground” experience of friends and family, (for example) here in Hereford.

Using myself as an example – sometime in April around the 13th or 14the April it was announced that the Vaccination Rollout was being extended to 45 to 49 year olds, and that they should come forward for vaccination etc. I being within that age range and continuing to work, simply waited for a letter from the NHS, A letter was received on Saturday 17th April telling me to go to a particular NHS website and book 2 appointments, using my given NHS number.

I followed the instructions provided, entering my details, and answered one or two other questions that the website was asking in relation to the booking of appointments. I was then provided with a list of Locations that I could go for Vaccination. ALL BAR ONE OF THE LOCATIONS WERE WITHIN THE NEIGHBOURING COUNTY OF WORCESTERSHIRE. I live in HEREFORDSHIRE where only 1 location was being provided to me, A Location on some distant City Limits Trading Estate, that you would not expect to know of as having a GP Surgery unless you lived within said area, or were mobile (have transport such-as a Car). I should at this point state that I was aware that my mother, also a Hereford Resident, had an appointment at a differing location within Hereford, although even she had to Travel further than she would have preferred in order to have her 2 Vaccinations.

So I not wanting to be difficult or make a fuss decided to go out of my way to go along with what was being offered. I should perhaps also state that I live in Central Hereford, LITERALLY less than 10 minutes walk from multiple GP Surgeries (including my own), a couple of Medical Centre Clinics, and The Local Hospital – none of which were being offered to me as a location for vaccination, as a Hereford Resident.

The Website Offered me an appointment that was 3 weeks away – oh that’s strange – why is Hereford literally a whole month behind the Vaccine Rollout Statistics coming out of Downing Street? I should also point out that my mother is in one of the elder 70’s + Age ranges, and she had to wait longer than expected for her 1st appointment, and literally had her 2nd appointment during this last week of early May – when the Government is claiming they (within her age range) were all fully vaccinated March / April – that is not true for my mother’s experience, so I wonder why a seeming National MEDIA BLACKOUT IS IN OPERATION AS TO CHALLENGING THESE STATISTICS? Even papers that you might expect to challenge these things have been noticeably extremely quiet on the issue, and can indeed be called out as collaborating through silence etc.

So I chose the earliest possible day that was possible for me to have an appointment for my first vaccination (according to the website – the 7th May 2021). I also chose a suitable time for me to attend – the times provided were 9 to 5 day time, so it meant that I would have to stay up after the end of my preceding Night Shift. I chose as early as possible 9.05 am. The Computer System then informed me that I had successfully booked this first appointment and should now book a 2nd Appointment – (I jotted down the appointment details in my diary etc.). I should also at this point interject that the Letter also made a big deal of ensuring you book 2 appointments. WHY IS THIS SUCH AN ISSUE?

I tried and tried and tried again, to book a 2nd appointment – and the computer system literally REFUSED to enable me to book a 2nd appointment – I eventually gave up, assuming that a 2nd appointment must be handed out when you attend your 1st appointment. Recalling that there had been debate over the gap between appointments for 1st and 2nd Treatment. Maybe the system was setup for 3 weeks, and the Government said 12, so they stopped giving 2nd appointments on a Computer system designed with 3 weeks in mind.

I then patiently waited another 3 weeks for the date of my appointment to come up. During those 3 weeks, we saw even more opening up of the Vaccine to lower age demographics, 44 year olds, and 40 year olds and so on. In discussion on the appointment booking system with 1 or 2 colleagues, multiple all reported the same things – being asked to present for appointments in distant neighbouring County of Worcestershire, and indeed that it was quite common that people were unable to book 2nd appointment on the online site that they were directed to by their NHS letters. A mixture of opinion exists among colleagues, some already having had Vaccination via underlying conditions arranged directly via their GP surgeries or Hospital, others that they would not be travelling to Neighbouring County for vaccination.

so following my shift on Thursday Night, that ended on the morning of Friday 7th May 2021, I did my usual journey home, got freshened up, had something to eat and called a local Taxi Firm, to see if they had a cab available, a call to another firm on the previous day had not been fruitful -as all their drivers were booked up with School runs. This firm did however have one available at the time I requested so all I had to do, though tired was stay up and wait.

I put my coat on, and put my smartphone in a coat pocket, and put my mask on in readiness for the cab, and I stood by the gate excitedly awaiting being taken for my vaccination, after having waited an entire month since the vaccination programme was opened up to my age group, and more than a year (that I have worked throughout) since earliest lockdowns etc.

The cab arrived, I got in, and the driver set out on the best route to the distant Industrial Trading Estate GP Surgery where I was to have a vaccination. The time I had chosen for appointment is actually the worst for Traditional Rush Hour Traffic, though we ploughed through and arrived with a few minutes to spare. I in such good spirits that I told the cabbie to “keep the change” from the note I had handed him, and got out of the cab, in front of the building, in this unfamiliar trading estate, I now found myself.

I did take a couple of pictures of the building on my mobile, as I had full intention of going all non-entity, boasting of having had a first vaccination treatment, and encouraging others to do likewise, anyone who had seen my Twitter feed on the previous day, would have, in fact seen that, on or around Archie Windsor Mountbatten’s Birthday (Harry & Meghan’s son) – I had provided a link to a Charity that was collecting money and matching donations toward Worldwide Vaccination Programmes, I provided that link after I made a donation.

So in front of the building a few people were already gathered, and I joined a Socially distanced queue. Shortly later a man exited the building, and started going along the line to folks asking what time their appointment was, and asking which treatment they were having (1st or 2nd). He also at some point stated that only people who had booked 1st and 2nd appointments had appointments – because they were the only ones, with appropriate reference numbers given by the online booking system. I was obviously tired and had now stayed up several hours after the end of my working shift, and could not believe what I was hearing “sorry, what, can you repeat that” – he repeated that only people who had 2 reference numbers for 2 booked appointments actually had appointments. I explained that all attempts I had made to book 2 appointments had been futile, and he simply said, I’m sorry, you have not got an appointment, he also explained something about having to untick some secret magical box within the online booking system that enables you too book a 2nd appointment. My mind kind of exploded in a combination of upset tired fury at all this, and I could not process or comprehend what I was hearing or having explained to me. I simply tried to hold myself together and as politely as possible informed the gentleman that I would not be coming back here again, it all feels somewhat surreal recalling these things as I type, , though it was one of those moments that seems to hang forever, often depicted in TV in various shape and form of slow motion for dramatic effect. After repeating that I would not be trying to book another appointment or coming back here again – I marched off, heading for home in a kind of shocked humiliated disbelief at my treatment within the queue etc., although my mum was a nurse for 50 years, and I myself worked within the NHS for 5-6 years (back in the 1990’s), I am, as an individual, an exceptionally infrequent patient or user of the National Health Service. I simply had to leave the place of humiliation – shattered (I think) by my having continuously worked wind rain or shine throughout the lockdowns, whilst all and every Media outlet I check upon be it BBC, SKY and multiple newspaper outlets bombard with propaganda and LIES as to how well the vaccination programme is going.

If there were not a NEWS MEDIA BLACKOUT ON THE BOOKING SYSTEM ISSUES, these things could have been avoided.

the Press could have run articles such-as

1. How to actually book 2 appointments without magical mystery knowledge not included with the instruction letter, or on the online booking website.

2. Why the population within the City and County of Hereford in Herefordshire are unable to book appointments online within the City and County of Herefordshire, & why? does Hereford in Herefordshire appear to the population of Hereford in Herefordshire to be a month behind and being “DISAPPEARED” from the National vaccination programme statistics coming out of Downing Street?

Many will say or think (in little white lies to themselves and others) it is bad form to criticise the NHS blah blah blah. I am not criticising people who have been in the front line, working as I have continuously throughout the pandemic, as stated above, my mother was a Nurse for many years, and I myself worked within the NHS for a time. I am criticising the BLATANT PROPAGANDA LIES coming out of DOWNING STREET, and the BLATANT NEWS MEDIA BLACKOUT that could have helped to rectify teething troubles and issues such as this one I have seemingly been caught up in.

So I marched home following my appointment that wasn’t an appointment, and my anger and fury grew, and various frustrated thoughts, feelings etc. ricocheted through my being (so to speak) unable to be articulated or expressed and so on. I thought I would sleep on it, rather than rush out online with something stupid or regrettable. I slept on it, as best I could, and woke up not having had enough sleep and still fuming, on Friday evening, I went to work in a somewhat angry disappointed state of mind, I chatted again on the issues with similar aged colleagues and again it was confirmed that 1 or 2 had heard of issues with the booking of 2nd appointments with the online system, and or that they could not attend appointments they themselves were offered in distant Worcestershire etc.

At some point in future I may well contact my GP surgery, and try to arrange an appointment via themselves, though even now several days later am fuming, and after this humiliation and treatment, I am far less inclined to tolerate the lies and bullshit coming out of Downing Street, or the complete media silence and blackout around these issues, and nor will I be wasting a moment visiting the NHS online booking website, or the only distant trading estate in the City, that I am allowed appointments at, a month away at a time. No thank you!

In the event that anything happens to me, in the meantime, this blogpost at least serves as something of a true account, of one individual’s experience of The Glorious Brexit Covid Vaccination Fraud that is occurring under the Brexit Government of Alexander Johnson and his army of sycophantic Brexit Xenophobes, and followers.

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well.

The Overfamiliarity Crisis

So “The Overfamiliarity Crisis” is not at all, a new phenomenon, so much as a vastly expanded, and exploited phenomena, where perspectives from an earlier age. of Societal “Ignorance Is Bliss” as to the ins & outs of Celebrity Life, or High Profile Life, have typically vanished in the modern day demands of materialism & consumerism created via Global Communications and The World Wide Web.

We recently of course saw hackers apparently make intervention into the output of various Establishment Realms and Individuals on the Social Media Platform Twitter, whereby it was seemingly revealed, or became apparent that the output from various Accounts was not actually necessarily the Headline name of the account Holder. Many Famous individuals or Business Owner can of course set up computer systems that pump out Advertisements or Daily Informative updates of their service & activities 24/7, whilst at the same time have a set up whereby they themselves can interject with more personalised comment or output on their particular output streams, that in turn can of course confuse and potentially bring about further conflict, as for every alleged intelligent person, who can rationalise that they are not necessarily communicating with, witnessing output from said Account Name Holder, many others may unwittingly not make such conclusions, especially those who are new, too young to fully comprehend or understand, or have existed in life not involving these sectors of modern day Technologies & Realms.

So people acting on an overfamiliarity with output from any given Realm, has been suggested to have been the bane of many a High Profile individuals life, and of course, also the reason why so many life realms hire employees, to better communicate with fans, or audiences and provide a greater level or security and so on, and that in turn can potentially exasperate or create issues where non previously existed.

Given the meditative approach I myself have taken with life in recent years, I do think that anyone with a higher than regular profile, wanting to maintain some level of sanity within their family life, should perhaps have direct lines & means of communication amongst each other, that bypasses hangers-on and employees, and other vested interest networks etc. Yes some types of behaviour may well be common place at all levels of Society, though the causes are often well documented, as are any number of Solutions. Are “Institutions” and “Establishments” really more important the the mental health and wellbeing of their constituent parts? IE. We often see the argument that a symbiosis exists between Celebrity & Reporter (for example). Though the feeding frenzy for some Societal Individuals has been demonstrated, over and again to have been abused & exploited for short term interest, and in many a case & circumstance, the inability of said High Profile Individuals to have any shape and form of Right To Reply, the act of ENGAGEMENT in many a debate or situation & scenario can typically reinforce that falsehoods are true & rubbish comments such-as “there is no smoke without fire” when, with many a circumstance, the exploitative individual has started a fire and then poured petrol on the flames as a CATALYST, to acceleration of the smoke, very often of course in support of their own AGENDA & audience, rather than necessarily the benefit of any other individual or group or collective.

We saw many of these kinds of activities during the so-called Cold War Years, between Nation States, though anyone who wants to delve deeper into greater truths, should check out International Trade between alleged opponent Nations, as more often than not, many a Propaganda Conflict (stoking imagined rivalries between states & peoples) has not been supported by what was happening hidden away from public perception & view, within international trade markets and papers. Newspapers such-as The Financial Times may not seem all that appealing and exciting to the common man & woman on the street, though they certainly help in debunking the daily nonsenses seen from many of their brethren within the broader News Media Industries.

So what books, have I selected for this article and how has the Amazon AI chosen to Organise them, within my Library – I often find that my own selecting of books, and then the AI. reorganising said publications, offers a quite interesting combinatorial “Feedback & Return” system for the development of my own Intuition, and ideas as to the nature of consciousness and indeed questions as to the bias of algorithms or otherwise, that are very much common place throughout much of the modern World.

Small Arcs Of Larger Circles – Nora Bateson – So this author has taken the work of an earlier generation writer relative, and expanded upon that work, in this case something called ‘An Ecology Of Mind’ with two invented terms to supplement the Theory. What are “Symmathesy” and “Transcontexuality”, anyone who reads this book will perhaps be enlightened as to this authors meaning of those terminologies.

Nanotechnology – Ben Rogers – So there have been many an excited quote as to the advent of nanotechnologies and what they mean for Society, for very many years, and of course, this particular book is perhaps a primer for someone wanting to be a scientist in this arena, rather than simply a fan of the many versions seen within many an entertainment fiction, that is possibly not yet supported by current Science advances.

Untangling The Web: An NSA Guide to Research – National Security Agency – I have zero idea if this really is the output of that particular United States Government Realm, though did think it strange even in these modern day times, that such an allegedly top secret establishment would say ‘here you go, here’s an insight to our methodologies and strategies for conducting research on the Web’.

The Shallows – Nicholas Carr – This is suggested to inform of how the Internet has brought about a change in societal behaviours namely how we think, read and remember. A great deal of Social Engineering style books exist, and many report on how modern technological realms have brought about shifts in many a societal demographic’s behaviours.

The Master Switch – Tim Wu – I purchased this as a cheapie, and though it is quite a few years old now, I do think it quite relevant in that today, I think we have advanced far enough from when it was written, to draw conclusions as to the books accuracy or otherwise on many of the then themes that were occurring at the time of its original composition.

Making Up The Mind – Chris Frith – How The Brain Creates our Mental World. This is another older book from a Neuroscientist, who wrote this book on regarding of the Brain Versus Mind debate, based in the latest advancements from his research at that point in time. I do often find that despite having far newer books on such topics, that it can always be handy to delve back into earlier authors works on the topic and subject. Despite the “accelerated speed of life” that we can now seemingly find ourselves caught up in, it can do no harm to understand that most Science Realms advance at quite small stepping stone increments, however much some individuals want otherwise to be the truth.

The Meritocracy Trap – Daniel Markovits – This is one of those kinds of books, that assumes to debunk the kind of psychological systems many of us have going on, throughout much of our lives. We all potentially know or have a Desire for Meritocracy, though typically also potentially have ego’s and sense of entitlements, that distract us from how we all manage to be correct in our own demand for equality and fairness and meritocracy, without necessarily having a shared ‘meaning’ that works for all peoples and communities and so on and so forth. In fact whilst none appear within todays book images, what often goes to the heart of these Matters are issues of “Winner Takes All Systems” Versus “Distribution of Merit Systems”, where sadly so-called Game Theory often demonstrates (whether we any of us agree or otherwise) that all things being equal – Winner Takes All is from an individual agent perspective – always the best strategy. I am not sure how that goes down with my Meditative Lessons and Learnings as many of those Guru’s (whose output I followed & courses I purchased) have clearly taken their followers on a journey, that often early on can seem as though it is they operating on a “Winner Takes All” strategy, though can often seemingly transition to unexpectedly something else altogether.

Game Feel – Steve Swink – So ideas surrounding modern day Virtual Reality have often been about interaction between you and your special gadgets, headsets and gloves and vibrating controllers and joysticks and so on, and I think this book was in many ways a kind of bridging mechanism between how us older generation of game players perhaps played video games in the 1980’s & 1990’s and how that has transitioned more and more to investigating sensory mechanisms for VR and so on. Yes arcade games within arcades have explored and had quite a variety of interactive mechanism even back in the 1980’s & 1990’s though since the turn of the millennium, more and more effort has been placed upon getting these things where your average person in the street wanted them, at home with family & friends on your Wii Console, or Playstation, or Xbox and so on etc.

Cyber Mercenaries – Tim Maurer – So we have recently seen great debate and mud slinging between Nation States as to the behaviour or otherwise of Their respective Intelligence Agencies, and who is doing what to whom at any given moment in time will, I doubt, never truly be resolved, as the modern Global Connected World has demonstrated far more privateer activities, within and without many a nation, than officially state sanctioned bodies could potentially keep track off, or indeed necessarily want to claim as their own. This book claims to report on some of those intricacies, though my own concern (in having read up and investigated many of these things) is that their is often a quite deliberate & hawkish bias from those within Espionage & Intelligence Agencies from most Nation States. The old Gentleman’s respect among given life realms (if it ever truly existed) has long since vanished in a sort of justification for the justification for the justification, free market hierarchy of too many competing factions, where sorting wheat from chaff and shades of grey as to motivations or otherwise, can only bring about more conflict & confusion, where wiser minded heads should acknowledge that they all know that they have ongoing operations against each other, though should all perhaps seek to reign in some of the questionable activities of freelancer mercenary, privateer operations of James Bond styled Story’s, setting Great powers against each other.

The Mediated Construction of Reality – Nick Couldry – This another book on Social Theory and Social Engineering or Communication & Media Studies (perhaps), though I was seeking to find a book that manages to incorporate many of these types of issues, and this book title perhaps fits in with those things.

The Death Of Expertise – Tom Nichols – So this book is only 3 years old, though I think many who have lived through the last few years might concur that, what was one regarded as healthy – the invitation to debate, participate & learn, and so on, has only exasperated and polarised very many an entrenched intransigent persons position on many a topic and subject of debate, very often to the detriment of possibly a given individual themselves, and indeed those who are constantly exploited by the very many ongoing free-for-all debates that can be found within most Societies.

The Great Convergence – Richard Baldwin – So this book is about Trade & Globalisation, and goes into some detail as to how trade developed down through the ages, and eventually led to the Globalisation of the last few years, with perhaps some prophecy as to what next.

Always Day One – Alex Kantrowitz – So I recently suggested that much of my Meditative lessons and learnings eventually led to the idea of Always Day One (in the way that you think, feel and behave etc.) and that philosophy has long been taken up by Technology Companies with great success, according to this author, although I am sure their is more to it than that.

Science Fictions – Stuart Ritchie – So an Above book suggested that the World was experiencing “The Death Of Expertise”, and this book perhaps counters that, with a position that says well actually, there is much about Science Expertise and systems that have in fact contributed to a lack of trust and faith in expertise, due to the way those Expert realms themselves operate, not sure how much cross-over their genuinely is between these writers of differing realms, though I am sure we any of us can seek to draw conclusions and comparisons etc. once we have read an digested there respective outputs.

Writing For The Cut – Greg Loftin – So I have perhaps overindulged Screenwriting books, and I thought I know what about Editing and other behind the scenes type roles that exist within movies and TV an so on. This one about editing, though interestingly once you find a sub topic or genre for many a given realm, you often find more specialised branches of interest, that you may have previously neglected or glossed over through lack of awareness that such a position or role existed, and indeed many of these things are perhaps dependant on production size, scale and scope, as well as budget. though are always of interest never the less.

So that another rather large selection to get through and should keep me occupied for a while. It is of course The Holiday Season, and I often find when noting what is in the media at this time of annual point, that there is always a certain amount of light care free silly season about it. I think this year we are still seeing a certain amount of silly season activities etc. Though also a greater polarisation among differing groups and factions, and of course in typical fashion, most can see the silly behaviours of others whilst not being altogether aware of the silly nonsenses of they themselves, and how they may well appear to others etc.

Anyway as always

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well.

Perkins Entertainment Realms Ltd.

So have you ever sat down, and tried to think of a name for yourself within a given industry that best describes you and your intended business, will it be as a sole trader, a partnership, a Ltd Company or Business, A Corporation. Have you imagined or envisioned how such a business might grow and expand to have a finger in more than one pie, or be an umbrella group styled company with delegated realms and so on. So yes I have done this on a number of occasions down through the years, and in multiple instances, have failed in actually getting started. In the sense, of having gained qualifications and then entered employment, or learnt about a given industry or business and even set out the beginnings of business plans, and then typically found little success in personal advancement within those realms of what can often or typically be described as “other peoples business’s”, or indeed have found that despite reading and learning and studying as anyone might do within a “surrounding yourself with a given realm cultural doctrine”, that the societal blocks to beginning and setting out on your own are ridiculous.

Within many working life realms, it is requirement of particular qualifications, or industry guild and union membership, though more often than not the issue is one of raising finance without compromising of your own values, belief’s and so on – to a given lender such-as a bank, or investment guru, and so on. People mock TV shows such-as Dragon’s Den or The Apprentice – though the truth be told, that many life realms that your average guy or gal on the street might be interested or passionate about are ‘closed shops’ and how those closed shops came into being were very often intended as positive developments or advancements when they were originally brought into being, though have very often down through the years transitioned into closed shop Establishment Cultures & network protection rackets all of there own, very often policed by people who may well have inherited ‘vested interests’ within a given life realm, without themselves having had to do anything beyond being born into a given family & network, or having schooled within appropriate pre-existing elite facilities and faculties et al.

Anyway, some of course, suggest that the way of the World was ever thus, though of course my own take on many of these things has shifted more and more to – do it anyway, circumvent them anyway attitudes. If you are able, or have access to places such-as WordPress, or Youtube and other Social Media sites and so on, just set out blogging or vlogging and keep on going, you might want to see how you yourself can monetise such things, and of course many a business that I find myself amongst on this backwater blog, are already Monetised with links to fellow bloggers or advertisers and pay for the story/review options, and you really can find many a home cottage industry specialist, or indeed clever individuals who may have started out with a narrow focus though over the years have developed a range of products and services that they themselves offer and so on.

So can I transition into a service or expertise, that others might want and pay me for, so much so that I am able to leave the present employment under my own steam and set up successfully for myself and so on. That is of course something I have wanted to do for quite a few years, though my experience of so-called Hypnosis products leaving me with the idea IT IS ALL AN INSIDE JOB, and then Meditation products and explorations bringing me to various degree’s of enlightenment & awareness, and spiritual realm practices, have all perhaps served those who had set themselves up as spiritual technologists and guru’s, though left me somewhat stripped down of a lifetimes worth of learning and study and I of course, in wanting to raise funds, thought AH-HA I can transition to this idea that seems to work for many of these folks – identify the money in communication – of courses what I also found was that in scales and measures of money, those who already have money can fast track themselves exponentially on successful navigation of these things, whilst those of us starting out with little, are unlikely to ever achieve a tipping point that places us within an enabled uncompromised zone of freedom, where we are not constantly having to prioritise through juggling of those lower range building blocks or issues described within Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (so to speak). People born into backgrounds of any level of pre-existing wealth, are often already set up with an invisible zone of “self actualisation” that they are perhaps oblivious to having, though is all to obvious to those perhaps ranked as outsiders, very often who want “in” to the ways and means and alignments of various establishments, though do not have the family background, or schooling, or socio-economic requirements to transition to a place of living in a more comfortable landscape of life choices and options, and of course – why I stuck with Meditation was due to its success at enabling the clearing out, or enabling the reviewing of a lifetimes worth of accumulated lessons and learnings and communications and so on, that may have had a greater baring on my success and failures than known, when I was simply unaware and unenlightened – in relative terms – to the more expanded version of reality I perhaps now have, as a kind of mental model or map, I say that in comparison with all those very many compartmentalised mental models and maps I may have accumulated throughout my life pre-meditation.

So what books have I purchased this week? and how did the Kindle/Amazon A.I. choose to position, order and download them from the cyberspace cloud, to my respective gadgets in order for my immediate perusal and reading thereof.

So in a similar vein to last week, this 1st image contains 4 new purchases, and a couple from the previous week. I shall of course, seek to explain my own reasoning or meaning in purchase, though as always, others may develop there own thinking on these things, or indeed choose to not read anything into it at all.

Priceless – William Poundstone – This is a good name for a book (IMHO) as we any of us as an individual or family member, or group can wonder upon what we might regard as priceless within our own lives. This book is actually about how Behavioural Psychology and experimentation among various business’s has led to the development of various pricing structures within business that are alleged to improve the possibility (or otherwise) of a sale.

Obliquity – John Kay – This was on my own list due to its cheap and cheerful price from Amazon, although the snakes and ladders image is also interesting, as is what is suggested within the book, the author is suggesting that the best method of achieving goals is indirectly, and you can look up the word ‘obliquity’ for yourselves. Interestingly, I of course studied Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at University, and a typical module component might be learning about how Fly-by-wire systems were developed and came into being. We often perhaps recall films such-as Indiana Jones with somewhat straight red Lines drawn on a map between locations to suggest the protagonist is in flight, and that is also often true of real life Airport and Flight Maps, though the truth is often one of planes circumnavigating Weather, hostile no fly-over zones, and other aircraft, and all sorts of logistics such-as refuelling (on long haul flights) that make a mockery of the idea of the straight line flight path between locations A & B.

Connected: The Amazing Power Of Social Networks – Nicholas Christakis – This book was purchased as a cheapie, though it is interesting as to some of the themes I was wanting to explore this week, in terms of how traditional ancient pre-computerised networks of an earlier age and generation, have often been repeated within the more modernist sphere of cloud computing and social media networks technologies and so on. Much of my Meditation was wanting to reduce or transition much of the accumulated mental noise within my own Heart and Mind and Body (so to speak), that we as ‘always on’ biological senders and receivers of sensory information accumulate from birth, to something more useful. Although I have over more recent years, fallen more into alignment with the RAISING THRESHOLD model provided by Centerpointe Research Institute, than many an alternate idea on these things. No it is not necessarily the be all and end all, though it certainly enables greater individual awareness & enlightenment & understanding of your own life path navigation and circumstances, prior to discovering, that you could look upon your own life from new perspectives, and ideas, that you may have previously only read about or dreamed off, without considering that some folks were already alive and living more empowered existences via those ways and means and technologies now.

Future Imperfect – David D Friedman – So this book was written prior to its release way back in 2008, and I myself did of course grow up, very interested in Science Fiction and Futuristic possibilities exampled through multiple entertainment media that I had been exposed to from a young age – books, Film, TV, Video Game etc. so much so that I eventually studied electronics engineering, and then went to University as a mature student studying Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence in the late 1990’s, early 2000’s. For me much of that motivation had been about starting again, a new life in a new area of the Country, and with a family, and finally achieving multiple of various childhood dreams etc. and all that after having had a somewhat troubled latter teenage years, where it very much had seemed all future hope (from a personal perspective) was gone, as to how I wanted the course of my life to go. So I still love many a Science Fiction many years later now, and also enjoy discussions on possible future technologies and how they may come to change the landscape of Society and the Human Race, although I am far less likely to place all the hopes and dreams and expectations of dystopia or utopia into one basket (so to speak).

This 2nd Image only contains 3 books, although their is another further 3rd image to be added further down the page.

Other Peoples Money – John Kay – So sharped eyed individuals will note that this is the 2nd book from this particular author, although I often find myself wanting to delve into Financial Sector and Economics books, they can often be somewhat self satisfied and self-congratulatory and I am hoping that this chap as a more independently minded economist is able to cut through some of the issues – especially during these seemingly unprecedented economic issues seen throughout the modern day World of Populist Nationalist Neo-Libertarian styled Governments about the Globe, suddenly creating and crafting what would have Historically been referred to as Communist Socialist styled Magic Money Tree’s, especially when most of them were Voted for on somewhat traditional lines of tight disciplined small c, low tax conservative spending oriented politics.

What-If – Randall Munroe – This was another cheap and cheerful expenditure on a book that asks what are suggested to be amusing, absurd and strange hypothetical questions. Given the present day World Circumstances, one cannot hope to wonder if someone such as this chap has already gone into the hypothesis of just one or two of the absurdities that people are experiencing within their everyday lives at this present moment in History.

A Game Design Vocabulary – Anna Anthropy – So much about my Meditation and so-called Cross Realm Intelligence explorations of recent years has been about finding the common links and points between differing spheres and life realms of human endeavour. Anyone who has studied Engineering or the Industrialisation of Manufacturing perhaps understands that much of the progress of the 20th Century World was brought about through World Wide Agreed Standardization’s of various things, and this book is perhaps a considered or contributed effort within the Realm of Video Games to move towards some common processes of standardisation models and understanding of what those within that industry are communicating among each other, yes I am sure a certain level of this exists as video games have been with us now for most of my own lifetime, although as always the more literature there is on such things, the more such a realm gains credence of legitimacy and transitions itself more into an establishment realm, and of course within computer realms the newest best thing is often King, so you really are in a place of ever moving horizons and profits are often placed ahead of educational requirements, whereby any attempt to make my Standard, Everyone’s Standard, can be like a red rag to a bull, for those who are up and coming or like to move fast and break things, or push at the boundaries and edge of possibilities, unencumbered by rules, regulations and the constrictions of an earlier generation of coders, hackers and so on, who themselves have often boasted or played and existed on the notoriety of their rebellious efforts from an earlier time within said industry realm – yes this is a common feature throughout the History of many an Establishment Realm or Life Realm whether regarded as part of the Arts or otherwise, and perhaps buys into those doctrines of Meditation such-as treat each day as a new start or beginning for new endeavours and so on.

So this 3rd and final image within this particular post has 6 books, and some may even provide answers to questions brought about through what I wrote previously, whilst other questions are left unanswered.

The Joy of Search – Daniel M. Russell – So I spoke on studying Artificial Intelligence at University, and the Robotics Lab, among other places I studied or visited during that period of my life had actually been contributing to various Space Research Efforts. Space of course – what you see within the Night sky, rather than the space between these symbols on this blog page. Space is vast and everyone on the planet could wholly concentrate on one sector of space as a research topic to have throughout there own lifetime, and all those other sectors would still be unexplored. So all sorts of techniques and strategies have been developed around the scientific tools that we presently have, or are developing to improve our capability of space research exploration and so on. Those tools range from the accurate and precise to best guestimates and very many a predictive model or hypothesis and so on. The good news for the common man or woman, is that those ideas that began life very often as space exploration tools, techniques and strategies and so on, have also typically been utilised within the realm of software for “SEARCH ENGINES”, and of course search engines have become a somewhat ever present ever expanding capability and capacity that is common throughout much of the modern World since the advent of the World Wide Web. So whilst this book says it is about search, and search techniques to find answers to a particular set of questions, I am hoping that there is some hidden greater depth to the questioning techniques and strategies provided within this book, or maybe I can even compare what is said within this modern book now, to some of those now seemingly long distant techniques and so on, I learnt whilst within the Educational System.

Range – David Epstein – So as a youngster I can remember watching athlete Daley Thompson doing Decathlon’s and that is of course a type of range of athletic capabilities when compared to another runner of that era Sebastian Coe – Of distance running fame, who might be described as a specialist in distance running. Many modern internet commentators & Famed Celebrities et al. very often made there name in one field of specialist endeavour whether acting or singing or writing or what ever a given realm expertise or talent happens to be, meanwhile of course most folks including they also have to contend with day to day living requirements and the famous and fortunate are perhaps little differing from the rest of Society in that regard and so on, though in this modern era, very often seem to spend inordinate amounts of time, handing out opinions on every topic under the sun based in subjective experience rather than necessarily a specialist expertise for which they rose to fame, power or whatever. I have gone through various phases of life of trying to specialise, as well as perhaps developing more generalist skills and I think there is a place for both range and specialisation within the modern World, although it will be interesting to see what this chap says within his book.

Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of A Good Society – Nicholas Christakis – So another author who has managed to slip two books into my purchasing week. This perhaps due to his topics, I spoke on how many a guru has developed there own blueprint for success and earlier I wrote on this issue of how pre-existing societal patterns of connectivity and social networking have very often simply transferred to our modern day tools such-as the World Wide Web.

Lost Connections – Johann Hari – So this book was seemingly a last minute addition to my lists, and that is perhaps because I would not claim to suffer depression etc. What interested me, was that it suddenly appeared among books I was looking at, some quite famed individuals made recommendations and when I looked at the content page, I thought actually this is potentially an interesting issue, he says the causes of Depression are a list of disconnections, and then goes on to Solution them with reconnections – in fact I would be doing a disservice if I said I am in agreement or alignment with such ideology prior to reading as my initial reaction was this is wrong, although I do know from my meditation and raised threshold, that very often things that we reject throughout our lives become somewhat like blocked up filters, and if seemingly horrible things are lurking beneath those mental blocks how are you to gain release? and it is only reinvestigating whilst on your new threshold and perspective viewpoint that you can have those clear out’s, releases or newly acquired ah-ha’s from a new perspective vantage point etc. Can it work for non-meditators – well I think I referenced a scripted Madam Pompadour quote from a Dr Who episode – where she suggested a door once open could be traversed both ways, and why do any of us hang on to life long traumas, or confusions and conflicted thoughts and feelings? my own experience of young childhood was of course I am sure similar to many another person in seeking to develop your own identity, choices and options, and of course rejecting labels (whether regarded as good/bad or neutral) and stuff from others, that did not align with my own plans for my growth and development or future dreams and beliefs for my own life during those years. So if this book works for some folks, good luck to them. Though I harp on about my experience of The Holosync Solution Programme due to my experience of it seemingly working for me, after investing in many a guru programme or expertise that has greatly failed me, in comparative terms.

Who Rules The World – Noam Chomsky – This was another cheap and cheerful bargain bin buy, although it is written by a chap who is well regarded for multiple of his contributions to the World of Literature or books in general. He was also on a list of famous signatory authors published in Harpers Magazine, complaining of so-called cancel culture. I genuinely think that as adult individuals we have the right to not necessarily participate in or experience all and every debate that exists in the modern global communications sphere, and that you cannot really cancel something, or claim I no platformed you, If I were probably not invested in what you are doing and saying anyway etc. in the first place. So much of what we think to be real about the World becomes somewhat illusory with enough meditation and guidance, although as always the World will continue to spin with or without the highs and lows of drama’s, found within all peoples and individuals within most echelons and levels of Society etc. It is time to say ‘oh get over yourselves! yet’

Deep Work: Rules for Focussed Success in a Distracted World – Cal Newport – So this is perhaps the antithesis to that idea above of Range, in the sense that this perhaps recommends a more specialised focus for success and achievement. I think that there is a place for both, and of course, many a person who became famous through specialisation can now be seen commenting on all and sundry topic and subject on the World Wide Web. You can typically find folks who have become famous or celebrity for both specialisation and range, and I think you have to perhaps develop your own skill, judgment and discernment as to what is appropriate for you and your own life, especially in this age where attention and experience economics have become the new normal etc.

So that is a rather large collection of book purchases to get through, what else have I been doing, well I did rent the Cinematic release of SCOOB! (Scooby Doo Cartoon Movie) and informed my daughter in West Wales (where she lives) so she could watch it from her home via my account, and I too watched it from where I am resident in Hereford. We began watching and collecting Scooby Doo Cartoons, Series & Movies when she was quite young as a kind of hobby together, on her visits to me and my extended family in Hereford, and we just kept going. Anyway we both thought the film great and far better than many a reviewer gave it credit, probably because we were better placed to identify and see many an in joke or reference, that might pass a casual fan or critic by. That is of course a ‘specialisation’ knowledge (in a way), although the ‘range’ of the film was perhaps in its guest star type characters such-as The Blue Falcon, Dick Dastardly & Mutley, Captain Caveman – and for those characters, it really was potentially harder to gauge, I know I like classic Dastardly and Mutley and I like classic Captain Caveman, though had only seen The Blue Falcon in an ancient cartoon cross-over. Dick Dastardly was fine, though not enough of Mutley, Captain Caveman was a little disappointing to how I remember him, and Blue Falcon whilst enjoyable within this particular Movie, I had limited point of reference to go on. so my range is perhaps incomplete within the broader range of Characters of Warner Brothers/Hanna Barbera/Ruby Spears etc.

The reason I share that information, is perhaps to demonstrate that ideas regarding ‘specialisation’ and ‘range’ are far more common place within the lives of most peoples and persons than they may realise, and of course they are likely to have developed such abilities throughout most of their years, and across a range of topics, and subject matter, as a natural part of growing up, and life in general, without necessarily thinking about it, having a qualification in it, or indeed finding that some faction or grouping or whatever and however they want to be identified, has planted some Flag in a given IDEA and declared it to be wholly owned only by those, who meet, or are in alignment with some given set of arbitrary values and identity criteria, and so on and so forth. One can actually get to a point in very many of these meditative explorations regarding any range of life realms whether business or entertainment or Art etc. where it does seem that far to many an establishment empire, is akin to a house built upon unsuitable foundations or ground, rather than being of genuine modern day merit, and very many of those preachy aspirational kind of things, that you often hear from many individuals of these establishments, and those that walk their corridors and all that jazz.

Anyway as always

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well.

The Art Of Super Disruption

So when thinking on writing a new blog article, I found myself thinking very much in regard of Politics and Disruption, and indeed the services, tools, and mechanisms through which disruption has been allowed and enabled to spread, throughout very many Communities and Localities around the Globe. As always there are those who advocate somewhat ‘anything goes’ policies in a disruptions are akin to shaking the tree, and seeing what falls out, fashion and manner, and others who believe that we already have pre-existing systems and mechanisms that exist that could easily have been applied in terms of protocols and rules of law, in order to bring disruptive endeavours within the jurisdiction of International Community and National Government Bodies and so on. You typically find as always, that consensus is rarely to be found along very many a permutation of ideas surrounding timelines, whether short, medium, or long term, and that in very many an instance, the responsibility should fall to the individual, or trader, or business or community that is in the front line of having to deal with a given issue. That of course potentially takes us into the ‘local for local people’ realms of discourse & engagement, though some of us, through our own particular life story or history, of often feeling as though we are ‘excluded’ or exist ‘behind enemy lines’, or are constantly under ‘siege’ have often utilised our knowledge of technology and so on, to find community in far away places, that offer reprieve from those often normalised undesirable affects of those stated issues.

So Will President Trump win a 2nd Term in the USA – I think at present he will, just as The Conservatives would win a new election within the UK. Sadly the rush to ‘engage’ or ‘battle’ at every slight or outrage, very often simply plays into the hands of those who already have control on the levers of power, or have pre-existing empowered lives. Far better, perhaps to be discerning in your choices and options, and of course, realise that people feel empowered at the possibility to ‘rebel against the system’ when people see mass media & social media stories of ‘herd rebellions’ and that becomes the new ‘idea of the system’ they will enter into the psychology of ever decreasing circular logic ambushes, alienating would-be supporters and neutrals alike, who very often might be up for some short battle, though rarely have the desire or motivation to enter into a long war, and alignment with Political viewpoints, where their original support was more in the spiritual terms of ‘what if this was me who suffered these seeming injustices et al.’ What people say outside of voting booths is often not demonstrated through the counts that occur of votes made in the Privacy of said voting booths.

I am long known to have been against The United Kingdom Parliament in its present shape and form, and whilst we have seen regional assemblies taking off in Scotland, Ireland and Wales, I really believe the United Kingdom would be better served through Parliament itself becoming something more of a Regional Assembly, and then having other assemblies throughout the UK. All that is wrong with LOCAL & NATIONAL POLITICS, can be found within the highly unrepresentative & heavy biases of the pre-existing set-up. I keep seeing campaigns for new local regional assemblies though it is akin to planting a zero on top of an infinity point.

So what books have I been viewing since I last wrote, well I have quite a number to perhaps show or speak upon, though as always my reason for purchase are my own.

So last week in a private posting, I had actually assembled images of very many freebies gained via kindle unlimited, and did not feel a need to publish those images for a viewing public. A couple of those books can be seen in this image, Infinity in the Palm of your Hand – Marcus Chown, and another mental models book – The Power Of Mental Models – Joseph Fowler. It can also be stated that my own quest or search for books has seemingly been disrupted by a re-organisation of Amazon Online and how they Organise differing categories of books and sub-categories and sub-sub-categories & so on. Whilst I am sure it works in a pleasing fashion for generic populist celebrity authors, for someone who likes to explore off the beaten path, for a higher level of well studied Realm Expertise, it makes things far harder, you really are getting to a point where you will have to visit University Web Sites and Examine there booklists and so on, for given topics and subjects, rather than just what is regurgitated and very often dumbed down for public consumption.

Disruption OFF – Terry Jones – I recently decided to reacquaint myself with recent book reading recommendations from Learning Strategies and Centerpointe Research Institute. This book was recommended for the Learning Strategies Photoreading Course in February 2020, and is presently available free via my kindle unlimited account.

Life on Your Terms – Rex Steven Sikes – This was the recommended book for the month of May for the Learning Strategies Photoreading course, and again is presently available as a freebie via Kindle Unlimited.

The Code Book – Simon Singh – This is the present and concurrent Learning Strategies Photoreading course book recommendation, and I paid for this one, though at a reasonable cost, and I like books on codes anyway, so another for my rather large collection on that subject matter.

The Productive Researcher – Mark Reed – So I like research though as many a reader perhaps notes, I do not seem to necessarily be all that productive on the many topics and subjects that I do research, can this book help me become PRODUCTIVE? This book is also presently a freebie via my Kindle Unlimited Account.

This image contains a couple of books that appeared in my Holosync Brain Club Reading List, whilst the rest are of course seeming bargains. Amazon seemingly managing to now follow the alleged ancient Tesco (Supermarket) Philosophy of “Pile It High, Sell It Cheap” much to the chagrin of authors and so on everywhere, though in the age of instant access Social Media, where people interact and communicate freely, writers & authors should perhaps be grateful that they are still able to reach audiences with somewhat whole and complete books, in an age where many attention spans are less than that of what they once were.

The Biological Mind – Alan Jasonoff – So multiple theories of mind exist, and anyone who has done a Learning Strategies course or two, such-as Abundance For Life, has perhaps encountered this idea that we are more than our mind and bodies and so on. This book seems to explore those ideas and I look forward to seeing how it contrasts or supports some of those courses and theories I have taken or studied.

Probably Approximately Correct – Leslie Valiant – So I studied Heuristics at University as part of my Artificial Intelligence Studies that are often developed around the idea of ‘search’ and many take Heuristics to be like a ‘Rule of Thumb’ And this book written by a Computer Scientist discusses Cognition and Evolution as perhaps complementary, I will not know until I read what he says.

Just Breathe – Dan Brule – So I already purchased books on breathing, and of course took up Meditation and followed various courses that have many a breathing exercise. As well of course having been a living breathing being all my life. This book was only £0.99, so I can hardly complain if it fails to offer anything new to the subject matter.

The Voices Within – Charles Fernyhough – Wow a book on this subject should make interesting reading, though I doubt I am alone in having taken up and continued with The Holosync Solution Meditation, due to its ability to clear out, dampen down or massively reduce, the amount of accumulated voices within, that any of us can have accumulated throughout our respective lifetimes.

Be Here Now – Ram Dass – This book was on my Holosync Brain Club reading list and as suggested earlier, I decided to see what those realms I heavily invested in for several years, were recommending or have historically recommended.

The Four Agreements – Don Miguel Ruiz – This book was also on my Holosync Brain Club list and they do say you get more of what you focus upon and that does seem to become the EXPERIENCE as you progress with the Meditation Technology, so whilst the World and its politicians and virus’ and uprising movements, and so on are all potentially highly disruptive to very many lives. In turning my own attention to more positive, uplifting, rewarding, thoughts, feelings and behaviours, I perhaps hope to better navigate such things, so as not to find myself returning to undesirable ,thoughts, feelings, behaviours and actions of a younger time of life etc.

Suffering Focussed Ethics – Magnus Vinding – So my Eastern Meditation Philosophy Teachings have often stated that “All Life Is Suffering” even though the Technology itself can potentially greatly reduce the suffering of any individual who invests in those Technology and Courses for themselves. Meanwhile of course there is always the issue of a World where suffering is still common place among many peoples and populations, and it can do no harm to study what the present day thinking is on some of these issues.

Block-Chain For Non-It Professionals – Srinivas Mahankali – So blockchain technology has had an interesting history in recent years, mostly as to the popularity of Bitcoin and security issues, and I myself downloaded and ran a Blockchain Software http://www.foldingathome.org for several months as part of my contribution to the Covid-19 Effort. Although I did not mind the software running in the background, I did find it an annoyance as to putting the computer into sleep mode etc. and finding that it does not happen, thereby introducing security risk to my Computer etc. So after 4 months I have once again removed the software, although some sites suggest that no blockchain software including this particular one can be trusted.

The Essential Guide…Production Music – Michael Hewitt – So I grew up around music, and of course like many a person invested in following pop & rock stars who were famous during my younger years, I also of course in taking up Holoync felt I was clearing up much of the accumulation of these things. I do think that a certain level of industry and commitment and skill and so on is involved within the Music industry, and it is therefore worth keeping an eye on and so I add this to my music book collection.

To Engineer Is Human – Henry Petroski – So I like engineering, and this chap claims to have written this book in an effort to bring a better understanding of definitions of engineering to a broader audience.

White Shift – Eric Kaufman – This another book on the issue of identity politics. Whilst I have my own viewpoint on the subject through my own lived experience, I have great concern regarding many of these books, as my experience of the Guardian Online community of many voices and claimed diversity, was not one of integrative policies so much as first among equals, self supremacists, I would even go so far as to suggest that whilst I myself have sought for multiple years some level of centred balanced equilibrium among competing factions, that particular sectors of so-called equal rights movements over indulge in first among equals cakeism, so much so that much of the overall diversity and equality landscape is completely out of equilibrium, much like the Social Media Landscape that many of these factions have used to exploit various populations and so on.

Meltdown – Chris Clearfield – So this was given a Financial Times best business books award in its year of release, though given the present drama’s seen throughout the World, it will be interesting to see how much of the lessons, learnings, techniques and strategies explained within this book are being applied to present day circumstances throughout the World.

So that is rather a large selection to make up for not publishing for a week or two, as always I can typically expand on my own viewpoints on various topic and subject matter, though likewise often feel you have reached a point or stage in your own life journey, where wisdom and discernment should be favoured over fool hardy ness, irrespective of where such behaviours and actions and so on are occurring and originating within the World at Large.

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well.

Now Where Were We – Ah yes

So part of the instructions for Meditation often revolve around this idea of Witnessing, so you could for instance write a blog article or draw a picture and then wait and observe what occurs in the wider World and ask yourself questions such-as How Does this article relate to these events within this given realm. They may not be directly related and you may have to play some internal game of ‘six degree’s of separation’ or variant there-off, you can then perhaps note those observations as a record of having carried out said activity. Where we many of us perhaps carried out such activities, throughout childhood and adulthood and were as far away as ever from ever gaining some shape and form of ah-ha, enlightenment & awareness, the reason I stayed with The Holosync Solution Programme was that it brought about the changes that it said it would. IE. The Holosync Solution programme raised my Threshold & brought about changes within my World of thoughts, feelings, behaviours & actions, that I had zero awareness, as to being possible.

So it was with some of those Witnessing ‘ideas’ that I held back on publishing anything this week, could I purchase or select some books from Amazon, and then wait a day or two whilst observing events within the wider World and play that game of 6 Degree’s of Separation? Well it has of course been a strange period for the entire World in recent months, since the Global Lockdown surrounding the Covid-19 issue, and we have also of course seen issues surrounding that virus taking precedence, above the recent years turmoil & conflict surrounding Brexit (at least in the United Kingdom), and even more recently we have also seen identity politics spring to the fore in the shape of The #BlackLivesMatter movement.

I, recently had a Fathers day card from my daughter, she lives in Wales & that nation has a differing set of lockdown rules to England (at present), and she also informed me, that she considers herself to be applying a higher level of self-isolation, although knowing where I used to live with her mother and the family in Ceredigion, West Wales, the whole area is somewhat isolated, off the beaten path, and hidden away anyway. One of those places that if you do not know that well, you could easily become lost, even with a map or GPS system. I call my daughter ‘daughter’ (along with her given name etc.) I used to call her mother ‘wife’, neither of those terms of course have some shape and form of ‘QUALIFIER’, so loved by many people playing the identity politic game. whom accordingly would describe the marriage as a ‘mixed’ marriage and my daughter as ‘mixed race’, where I, if pushed would suggest she call or think of herself as a ‘Hybrid’, as potentially a more positive term than many Labels that do the rounds.

So I do not generally ‘go there’ much like the writer of that book “Why I’m No longer talking about race to white people”, and the reasons are course that I suffered a great deal of abuse over very many years, and that I work for MONEY, I do not work for race, colour, creed, sexuality, gender, disability, or any number of other toxic (often cultist) identity politic brand that people are expected to show loyalty and pledge allegiance to and so on, I find that informing people of such details, often leaves you isolated whilst they scuttle away to find folks more amenable to their prejudice, I have also found overtime, that a number of my immediate working colleagues, and even non-work colleaguesfurther afield have adopted similar attitudes, and found that all our lives and working conditions improve as a result. As someone who was in a ‘mixed’ marriage, you often find prejudice appearing from all directions and the most unlikely of places, you have broken the nudge and a wink covenants of Middle-England & The Commonwealth Rugby, Cricket, runs the thought process in the Guardian and other United Kingdom based News Media Realms, they (The Guardian) of course publish a wide variety of voices from many communities, though when I started commenting and joining in – I very quickly found that the undercurrent was one of ‘Stay with your own kind’ etc. to which I can only respond – been there, done that, already broken your rules folks – what you gonna do about it. I did see a Guardian article from Movie Writer Director Steve McQueen stating that the issues were Class and Race and I mostly concur with that, in that any desire to go into Acting and Theatre – I had when much younger was seemingly scuppered through the Class issues of the School I attended. Likewise I having been in a mixed marriage and having a daughter from said relationship, made me a target of abuse from many an intransigent or of more extremist position or bias identity politic cry-wolf individual or grouping, Harry & Meghan are somewhat taking a leap of faith in having gotten together, and gone their own way (so to speak), and I do hope despite what is in the press, that the broader Royal family are all supporting they and each other behind closed doors. I continuously to the best of my abilities shielded my visiting daughter, from the duress and stress and pressures I was often under for many years within my own life circumstances, and in honesty would suggest they (Harry & Meghan and Archie) require higher level of security than the Queen. The Brexit debate and related toxic nonsenses simply sent simmering tensions among many people to boiling point and beyond. In terms of awareness it should be stated that Steve McQueen could potentially be abused or called a hypocrite due to his earlier support of a woman at the head of the British Film Industry whom when DIVERSITY Targets were made and introduced – immediately commissioned and helped fund multiple ye olde White Period Drama’s, effectively circumnavigating the diversity requirements. Although she could in awareness and enlightenment terms simply be operating in alignment with the Winning Nationalist Brexit Agenda. That the problem of The Big EVER MOVING HORIZON Goal best approached in small stepping stone sub-goal fashion of present day issues or circumstance. At least Armando Iannucci can be said to have done the opposite with his David Copperfield film, and of course I look forward to seeing American Musical ‘Hamilton’ when it arrives on Disney Plus. Do not bite the hand that feeds you, well some Loyalty’s demanded or given, are not always in the best interest of those participating in such things, openly or behind closed doors. Everyone and anyone can always find a justifiable reason, such is the nature of our species.

So many of these For Profit Businesses want people to ENGAGE, PARTICIPATE, though what you usually find is unrepresentative ‘lip service’ individuals that come with some ready made bias of their own. And yes Regular Meditation with Holosync does seem to change the landscape for people on a personal experience level, though that is not going to necessarily be good enough to convey such things to other people, who are not necessarily wanting to become Meditators themselves, or indeed go outside of the bias and intransigence’s that they may have held pre meditation. (Kind of like being a lifelong supporter of a lower league team, that post meditation you know without doubt is going to lose against the higher league team ( and with greater clarity)). You can lead a horse to water though you cannot make the horse drink (so to speak).

So we are all full of lifelong accumulated DATA, and that data can be used in positive uplifting rewarding fashion, to help others and yourself, though very often, the attitude I have observed and Witnessed from many people who have utilised Enlightenment Awareness Tools, is one of make them suffer as I once suffered. I quite like the idea of Neutrality on many a topic, though likewise do feel, that the further I progressed in The Holosync Solution Programme, the more it seemed, that much of what has been done at Higher Levels of Society – Royalty, Science etc. has often been the most appropriate – in terms of what I know NOW Versus things I may have not been aware of at an earlier time of life etc. We have security and many Departments of State because they (are supposed to) reflect States of mind of the greater population and so on, though likewise given population sizes and Global Communications etc. and the ever ongoing “Progress” we see throughout the World, it can be the wise individual who focus’ more on themselves and their own uniqueness to affect change within their own life and World, than simply being a sheep in a World of would be cult leaders and Champions and so on, or at least find some greater discernment in choices and options and navigation etc.

Anyway what did I purchase if Anything, well first up

So this image has four new books and a couple from the previous week. As always I can think ‘oh that is interesting’ – as to how the Kindle AI organises and positions them. Or I can simply dismiss as imagination, or indeed seek to benefit in some way, shape and form from the expertise of the AI. At various points and at various levels of courses and Meditation you do come to see that you are somewhat repeating yourself as to the kind of things you are seeing, so those with lifelong diaries or blogs and so on, perhaps have an advantage over those of us who have not kept up with some daily ritual of collecting together our notes on thoughts, feelings, observations, awareness’ and so on.

Decoding Reality – Vlatko Vedral – I quite liked the title of this book, although it is simply another one for my Quantum book collection, and of course the more books you have on a topic, the more you can perhaps successfully utilse courses such-as photoreading from Learning Strategies. Although I must say from my years of Meditation that Decoding Reality sounds a somewhat simplified Label as to the Many Dimensions of Nature & Reality that I have experienced through my Meditations.

Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology With Reinvent Nature and ourselves – George M Church, sounds wonderful does it not, though we have all seen those Jurassic Park movies, Westworld TV Shows, or Witnessed the pandemic of a somewhat Frankenstein’s Monster Coronavirus. Still another book for the Gene Editing, DNA, RNA styled books of more recent studies.

How To Write A Great Script with Final Draft 10 – Wallace Wang – So I write this blog on WordPress, and I participated in Commenting at Guardian Online for 3-4 years (I think (mostly Cartoon Corner). And I also wrote a Few Articles on a Blogsite called Medium, and I downloaded and Purchased a somewhat all-in-one writing utensil called Scrivener, as well as having long owned versions of MS Office Suite (incl. Word). So I recently read a book that threw superlatives at some Screenwriting Software called Final Draft – so downloaded a free trial of Final Draft to check it out. The Instructions or Guide is apparently Youtube Video Presentations and I am like (arrggh) I like Active Tutorials such-as following instructions in an inbuilt tutorial or book and doing the actions on my PC or gadget. Having to watch video’s on some random site is not really my cup of tea. So I searched for a book and found this one, to help me along a bit. It was also a freebie via Kindle Unlimited.

An Introduction to Information Theory – Symbols, Signals and Noise – John R Pierce. So Many a book buyer of recent years may have purchased Nate Silvers Book The Signal and The Noise, though that was often about his experience of Technology end-user Statistics analysis, and he can be found regularly on his website and Twitter doing political and sports statistics probabilities and guidance’s. That is perhaps more “End User” styled signal and noise, and not really related to HARDWARE knowledge and electronics and earlier generation Information theory. So this book is more geared toward Actual Engineering and very much reminds me of my time in College studying Electronics Engineering. Where you typically not only learn logic gates and circuit board components etc. that we may have already learnt in Math, physics or earlier Computer Science lessons, though you actually get hands on creative in terms of physical circuit boards and components and some programming to get your circuitry to work etc. This book says its a collection of old Articles, though I enjoyed going through it anyway. I think this level of study should be done in School far earlier maybe alongside Woodwork and Metalwork, rather than later in Colleges or as a little bit of computer Science or Physics. I recently posted an article speaking on Military Signals Regiment, and a number of youngsters I was at College with were from the local Military Establishment in West Wales (A Missile testing Station and Airfield), I was really impressed with there Hands on skills with wiring and electronics and so on, that they perhaps gained through being apprentices, abilities and training that are often not available in more civilian realms.

Bulletproof – David Diamond – This is another Screenwriting book, that I add to my collection and this is the book that spoke on the Final Draft Software, I have a number of these books already and clearly over indulge myself, though it can always be interesting to see the perspective of multiple peoples within such realms and environments. Do I think anyone or anything is Bulletproof? Well in Entertainment Realms whether Games Realms or Major Motion Pictures, TV, Comics, books, Theatre we are given that sort of belief about particular characters, though in day to day life, we have seen Tragedy befall people from all realms and walks of life and at all levels of life (however they identify), so whilst it does pay to stay positive, it can also be sensible to have appropriate safeguards and precautions in place (Far easier for some folks than others perhaps). Though that should not be the focus, the focus should be on Solutions for any given individual given their own known circumstance, scenes and scenario’s etc.

Traffic Secrets – this book was ninety nine pence, and reminds me of one or two centerpointe courses I may have taken, it is basically about organising your own Website traffic, and gaining new income streams and so on, I also saw associate names of Centerpointe Mentioned, so it is easy to see, sometimes how particularly practices become common place and popular (because they work) and some will take the time to show people, via courses or books, there is always a new generation perhaps interested in starting out or setting up and plenty of such information available.

Innercise – John Assaraf – This chap is another Affiliate of the late Bill Harris, and I do recall having participated or listened in to one of his interviews or lectures and being quite impressed, although I was somewhat discerning in further pursuing such courses, as I had already invested in multiple Centerpointe Affiliate Courses at that time. There is no harm in checking out such peoples works and this particular book came free courtesy of my Kindle Unlimited Account. I should state that many of these Guru’s are not doing or saying anything would necessarily say is wrong, though typically have found that there is a genuine Experience Difference in my Pre Meditation and Post Meditation Worldviews and outlooks, in regard of many of these courses.

So I keep on Meditating, and I should perhaps develop courses and navigational routes of my own, though as always there really is an element of uniqueness in anyone’s given experience and how they choose to live there life and use there voice, if they have one, I often felt that my voice and experience went unheard for many years, and that was in part due to the louder voices of experts and people who have attained Celebrity or a high profile through what they have contributed to the World, or indeed otherwise. When I started Holosync, I did at some point adopt a zero tolerance attitude toward many historical thoughts feelings and behaviours, I wanted to clear out my own junk, along with not necessarily collecting anything new from the external World, to feel bad about along the way, and I do feel better for having done that, though as always breaking old habits or routines and so on, often requires a certain level of self discipline and vigilance, that it can be easy to give up on, when or if, you feel that you are not gaining the desired shifts in your life fast enough.


thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well!

They Trooped The Colours At Windsor Castle

They Trooped The Colours At Windsor Castle

The Queen Sat Alone Without Her Known Rascal

A Sovereign’s Life, A Picture Postcard

A Sunny Day & A Birthday Card

Wrote Scoundrel.

Yes I did watch what I could of the event, as I quite like such things and in complete contrariness to the commentators, I think Windsor Castle a Far Superior setting to anything London has with regard to thoughts of Royalty and Pageantry and so on. Dear BBC – Please can you provide a setting within your Digital Services so Commentators can be muted without muting the Music or Entertainment Spectacle you wish to enjoy.

What else, well I have been browsing for new books to add to my collection and have seemingly managed to find myself being coerced (somewhat by the A.I.) into purchasing books that I would not normally necessarily choose. As I shall perhaps explain as I go through them.

Waking, Dreaming, Being – Evan Thompson – This is another book that potentially goes well with my Meditation Collection, so I thought I might add it and see if anything new on the topic & subject comes to my awareness. A quick read of the introduction suggested to me, he is potentially more forthright in his writings than some of those I have read previously, although many ancient Chinese Proverb and Anecdotes are often quite well humoured when translated.

Life On The Edge – Jim Al Khalili – This was going exceptionally cheap and bargain basement, and is linked through Authorship to a book on Quantum Biology, That I purchased relatively recently.

Manufacturing Consent – Edward S Herman & Noam Chomsky – This is often cited as a kind of Journalistic Realm Bible for many people, and whilst some might claim the book to be dated, I think many people would be surprised at how little changes, when you know what you are looking for, and how those strategies & behaviours have been accelerated & elevated to new heights with the continuing evolution of communication technology’s.

Experimentation Works – Stefan H Thomke – This is kind of about product testing on selected groups of consumers by various Technology Companies, I think is a current HOT TOPIC for a new generation of students, and the cycles and patterns, that we are seeing within the broader World. I do not think these company strategies to be particularly NEW, though with modern technologies doing much of the leg work (that humans may have once done), you are certainly going to see these things increase exponentially.

Everything Flows – Daniel J Nicholson – This is a Freebie and is related to the World of Philosophy in regard of Biological Processes.

Transforming The Future – Riel Miller – This is another freebie and on this occasion is related to the study of ‘Anticipation’ , well that is what it says, and I will probably find I simply have to transition the terminologies they use to a format, that makes sense to me.

Cyber Strategy – Brandon Valeriano – Now whilst this book speaks of Cyber Wars between Nation States, for me the obvious comparison is perhaps with the Manufacturing Consent book, so as this is the more recently published volume, it will be interesting to gauge how far these things have shifted in the intervening years.

New Romantic Cyborgs – Mark Coeckelberg – This a slightly differing take on those robotics through the ages type of books I purchase fairly regularly. On this occasion I stumbled upon the book whilst researching other topics. Politically in the present day, it perhaps easy to hold up as an example of pre-determined bias within Western Nations Thinking, although I would counter that many Nations though out the Modern World have contributed to AI research and progress and so on, hence so many fantastical algorithms that manage to search organise and arrange in ways, fashions and means that somewhat DISRUPTS everyone’s bias’ often including the creators of such things.

Prometheus Rising – Robert Anton Wilson – This an interesting research volume that covers some 8 Circuits of the brain theory, I am not all that familiar with, although when I see the topics described as each circuit I often have an oh that interesting – it is kind of more on this topic of awakening and escaping the tunnel vision of the respective theories and so on, that we any of us can find ourselves somewhat conditioned for, given how common place many such things are within society.

Did he, oh know you cannot be serious, yes well let us recall that I have selected quite a few freebies.

The Art Of Doing Science & Engineering – Richard Hamming – This is perhaps somewhat self explanatory, although I often prefer hands on IDEAS of Engineering & Science from an earlier age, to very many modern books, where you can often feel that the Technology Expert has not been anywhere near doing Engineering or Doing Science etc. It also perhaps in alignment with my recent idea of Resets, where I then went on to think about not so much resetting as starting ANEW – just as Manufacturers and Software Companies go through production cycles of advancements, at some point the Shift or Advancement can be so great that you simply have to start over with New Information or Technology that simply is no longer compatible with Historical Products etc. A favourite story on this was an engineer who with advanced Aerodynamics Knowledge and modern Materials developed a new hoverbike or board, that whilst possible to conceptualise at an early time, was simply not possible with the earlier generation of knowledge or materials and technology etc.

The Art Of Political Storytelling – Phillip Sergeant – I suspect that this book wants to be the Natural Heir to the Manufacturing Consent book, although there have been many down the years with that aspiration and this too will find itself in a three way study with the aforementioned book and the Cyber Strategy book..

The Impact Of Identity – Irina Nevzlin – This was a freebie and in a range of books that are seemingly being pushed at the present time. I have read a number of books around some of these identity politic topics, and typically have experienced particular experiences over many years that shaped my own choices and options and views on such matters.

The Spatial Web – Gabriel Rene – This was another Kindle Unlimited book, and is one that goes into excited overdrive as to the integration of Humans with Machines and AI. It all seems a little OTT to me, although it is always interesting to see what other folks think on these topics and subjects.

Character & Structure – Chris Andrews – This one another for the writing collection, although on this occasion another kindle unlimited freebie, so what is there to not like.

Closing The Gap – Teresa Boughey – this another kindle unlimited freebie, although on this occasion, suggesting solutions for more integrative inclusivity with regard to diversity and so on. Not sure how it matches up to my own thoughts on these issues and topics, though as it is a freebie I can find out.

So that is another large selection for me to go through as part of my ever ongoing and evolving research studies and so on. As suggested earlier, a number of these books are on topics and subjects I usually circumnavigate, (journalism & identity politics) as my own lived experience often supersedes, that of quite a number of experts, who very often whilst possibly ‘meaning well’ are so far removed from the reality that I have existed within, that there really is little common ground for discussion.

I would much rather simply recommend The Holosync Solution and affiliate courses, and advise that whether you presently believe it or otherwise, you will genuinely come to see that you get more of what you focus upon IE. if you must watch the news – A Sunny Day and a Pleasant Trooping of the Colour at Windsor Castle in Celebration of the Queens Official Birthday, is far healthier to focus upon than much else that is within the present news cycle.

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well

How Many Reminiscences

So much as I seemingly went through a phase of not writing very much on my blog previously, I recently found myself going through various shape and form of what can perhaps only be best described as reminiscences, and that in turn can of course become thoughts as to how wonderful life has turned out, given the enlightenment & awareness I now have, or indeed I can become a little down as to ‘where did it all go wrong’ in my life and so on. Of course they do say it is never too late (so to speak) to turn things around, though it can be troubling that even when you have followed any number of Expert Guru’s informing you of the best techniques and strategies for their own success, that their are basic flaws that rapidly seemingly appear when you yourself seek to navigate in similar fashion.

Anyway more about that reminiscences topic & subject later, and how I ventured into the attic to go through some of my longer term possessions & belongings, that perhaps brought some of my own apparent life failures into greater focus, over the last week or two.

With regard to books, I in similar fashion to this issue of reminiscences visited Amazon Online and actually tidied up the assorted Wishlist Collections I had been steadily building up over a number of years. Tidying up perhaps a euphemism for removing stuff. Of course, once the adrenaline kicked in, I kind of went into Overdrive and removed many a book that I knew I would still remember and return and purchase at some future point, though in multiple instance, you know you already have the works of particular author within your collection, and simply having them on the wish list’s has assisted in maintaining a certain equilibrium, as to my interests and so on.

So without further ado

First Up, I should have no reason to explain, that I think I was beginning to overindulge on the buying books front, so that perhaps why I had a wish list clear out, and also why I visited the attic, in the first instance in search of my University Collection of books, though interestingly that also turned up, very many of the books that have perhaps had the greatest (whether desired or otherwise) influence on much of my life.

The Best Story Wins – Matthew Luhn – This was not on any of my lists, though found itself being purchased due to my long time love of Computer CGI and so on, that Pixar (Whom this chap worked for) excel at within their movies. I would love to align with ideas as to The best Story Wins, though like many a person who has researched tales such-as ‘The Hero’s Journey’, will potentially find myself thinking it is more complicated than that, especially when you research horizontally and vertically as to the rise and fall of empire and come to realise, that many an individual success story among various societal groupings is vertically inherited and horizontally maintained, and somehow devalued in terms of relatability to someone who begins with little of the opportunities afforded intergenerational elites.

The Chessboard & The Web – Anne Marie Slaughter – This was not on any of my lists either, though I played Chess At home and later at school from a junior school age and indeed later learned of how chess had influenced the thinking of Earlier Generation Computer Scientists, who in my more recent lifetime of Artificial Intelligence Research were often suggested to have maybe suffered from ‘People Like Me’ syndrome a common fault of bias as found throughout the human race, though in this Computer Science Realm instance of Computing Machines had followed the ‘I am intelligent and I play chess, so a machine ought to be able to play chess too’ (nothing wrong with that, though of course you enter into the quagmire of definition of Logic versus all else in terms of what is regarded as thinking and thought and creativity and any number of human capabilities and capacities that are demonstratively regarded ‘Intelligence’. I doubt the book goes into that, as the write up suggested it was more on this issue of connectivity and network science – that might be called Social Climbing for humans using machines.

The Hacker & The State – Ben Buchanan – This had actually been on my list, though I had to think long and hard as to the wisdom of purchase, as I generally prefer Espionage Intelligence Realm Books that have less exciting ‘conspiracy theory’ styled names, the price and the reviews swung it, and I think it possibly relevant in that it was recently announced that the UK Military is once again introducing a 13th Signals Regiment https://news.sky.com/story/13th-signal-regiment-british-army-creates-new-cyber-unit-to-protect-forces-12000730

Radical Abundance – K. Eric Drexler – Now I have for quite some time had a number of books related to Nanotechnology and Materials Research within my Collection, and indeed had several such books on my wish list. This particular book was not among them, though in once again researching the topic, it seems sensible to have one of the people who set the ball rolling on these nanotechnology, things within your Bibliography, as is typical with many ‘Science’ Realm books, they can often be quite expensive, although general audience reading books such-as this one, less so.

Deep Learning Illustrated – Now I spoke above as to my University books, and I typically have favourites among them on topics such-as ArtificiaI Intelligence and Machine Learning and so on, and surprising as it may seem whilst they may or may not have some pictures and so on, you would be hard pushed to find any that are as full of cartoony illustrations as found within this particular tomb. In fact one of my reminiscences from younger, was that when I wanted to utilse my early Home Computers in a creative fashion, I had actually not developed the necessary Artistic Skills that might have better enabled me to do that. Perhaps easier to be good at Art or Music & Creativity in general and use the Computer as a ‘TOOL’ for those things, than want to Creatively use Computers and find yourself limited by your simple failure to understand that a tool is only as good as it’s user (so to speak).

I Am A Strange Loop – Douglas R Hofstadter – This author is said to be a great philosopher and Scientist of the Mind, and whilst I am sure that I will not fully concur with all that is said within this work, I do think having viewed the contents that it covers many areas that I have perhaps less elegantly thought about, researched and written about at various times, as well as areas that various guru’s I have followed have talked about, so maybe I should have high hopes. Though have perhaps been feeling somewhat melancholy along with my reminiscences, so perhaps this is a book that appeals to that more melancholic state.

So those are the 6 books I have purchased at this present time. What else can I write about, well reminiscences was the title and what I have been contemplating was writing my own diary, going way back into my own History and going all autobiographical, now that does sound quite simply and I did recently hear a talk, where someone recommended following Julia Cameron’s ‘The Artists Way’ practice of so-called morning notes, this is possibly something I already did in the sense of huge swathes of this blog made of up note taking at the earliest opportunity when witnessing various events.

The problem perhaps as to the title of that last Book I am A Strange Loop – whereby in having taken up Meditation and followed various Guru Courses, there is an element of the self-fulfilling prophecy issue, where I might write a book titled I Am A Strange Algorithm or some such. and in so doing initiate the very hell, that much of my life might have been considered to be. There is also this issue of Vertical and Horizontal linear and non-linear ideas as to Time and Space and indeed where all the so-called mental programmes that we accumulate and so on and so forth take us. I recently spoke as to Resets and was delighted to see Prince Charles speaking on the possibility of A Great Reset with regard to Economics and so on, and as to how The Natural World or Green Economics might be better incorporated into Business plans and so on.

As well as speaking on the issue of Resets I actually thought I might, start over at lower Levels with regard to Holosync Meditation, and indeed doing some of the associated Courses and Learning Strategy courses I purchased more slowly and methodically, than I may have done when I did them Originally. Not sure that it will make a great difference, to my life and Circumstances, though I do feel that there are a number of almost seemingly genuine Lifelong Dreams – that I consider to be my own (though undoubtedly are shared in a World of 7,000,000,000 people), that are presently unfulfilled, due to so-called ‘Life Happening’ etc. and getting side tracked or reorganising of priorities, and hierarchies and so on. I was thinking about this due to the so-called longstanding issue surround my name and its usage throughout history, although in more recent times due to much broader levels of awareness and enlightenment and so on. An example was my speaking on the Films of Christopher Nolan – and whilst many might rush to think of his excellent Batman Trilogy, one of my favourites was actually Inception – I only saw it several years later than its release, and it very much made me think on my Meditation Experience and the kind of physical structural changes that Occurred within my Brain when originally rushing through The Holosync Solution programme. His forthcoming film called Tenet was said to be a Time Travel Espionage Thriller although more recent clarification suggested it was not time travel so much as Inversion – and that perhaps goes in alignment with some of the Strange Experiences that Holosync can bring about as well of course as providing another strange link to me, when I place my name in an anagram Engine https://new.wordsmith.org/anagram/ it typically comes up with Inversion among the list of available anagrams from my names.

I mention that not to boast, so much as to go back to basics and remind ourselves that what we call writing of alphanumerical language and so on, is actually still a form of drawing signs and symbols and so on, as I have progressed through all these course and so on I have typically come to see that there is perhaps little benefit with overly identifying with any given set of communication symbols and indeed that ‘progress’ and ‘refinement’ are seemingly always occurring to someone somewhere and that whilst I might not particularly want to keep my eye on World Events and so on, it can always be handy to know where any given grouping is. US Presidential Candidate Joe Biden recently spoke as though the forthcoming US Presidential Election was about the Soul of the Nation, and we do have to wonder as to what a Unit of Soul might be regarded as and or how soul is transmitted etc. Although I perhaps kind of showed that in a previous article, and the passing down of knowledge one generation to another and so on.

Anyway I do actually have much to write about with regard to materials I found in the attic, although I am also concerned that nothing I do or say, can rebuild my life in a favourable way even with the best of lessons and learnings that I have accumulated in later life. I recently saw an article on some book by Jung (I think it was) that was his explorations of various religious thinking and metaphors and so on, and among them was this idea of The World Egg, and whilst that might seem strange to some, in terms of the Meditation Lessons and Learnings and Cycles and Patterns of Time – it does kind of work, although of course Only the Female of the Species produces Eggs whilst us Menfolk have to continue to search for meaning, so at the present time, it could be suggested that issues in the UK such-as Brexit were about the self-fulfilling prophecy of various Elite gangs, tribes, establishments wanting to cement there place in the World Order (as it appears within there own Hearts and Minds and Bodies as predominantly a Materialist World View), whilst those of more Spiritual Leanings, who can perhaps see the greater map cycles and patterns throughout History etc. or however one wishes to describe it, might suggest that the World goes through cycles and patterns akin to rise and fall of male and female numbers within particular age ranges and so on, and that whilst there is always more females than males anyway (in most measures of such things), all these excessive game of Black & White Yinyang styled excessive Authoritarian Drama’s, are typically equivalent to mating rituals etc. between the sexes. Although of course this can be where certain ideas break down, due to excessive numbers of tribal politics and potential role models and indeed where any given individual is at within there own life journey, and how many repetitions of the same information they have accumulated within the own life and Mental World etc.

Far to many of us, seemingly become ensnared with obsession about other peoples lives to the detriment of empowering our own, this can be especially true in this modern age of Global Communication systems and indeed, a failure within many Global Institutions to Change when new or better data and information or maps of reality are available.

So I once again went on into rambling, although it can certainly help with bringing some clarity, or understanding that you lack clarity on various aspects of these things.

I shall no doubt return with more articles, once I have made a decision as to how to write more of my own autobiography, in a way that is subjectively factual, though possibly also explaining how much of these things fall apart in the awareness and enlightenment arena to those who have gone through any number of similar processes to those I subjected myself too.

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well.

Cross Realm Yin Yang

and the Whole Brain Phenomena.

So I have continued in my Meditation’s and studies since I last posted an article. And of course I have continued in my Study of how the Amazon Kindle AI Organises the books within my Library for these following images.

So this week I have purchased a number of books from multiple price ranges and indeed picked up some what I consider bargains, and indeed taken advantage of getting some freebies via kindle unlimited.

The Way Of Zen – Alan Watts – This is a book that cost just a couple of pounds, and Alan Watts, was often cited as being within the bibliography of Bill Harris of Centerpointe Research Institute, usually with regard to what he described as The Game Of Black & White.

Pre-Production Blueprint – Alex Galuzin – This is another Games World related book, although for me, I think helps with these Cross Realm Idea’s that I have spoken on as to frameworks and scaffolding and so on. Although when I was younger I had many grand ideas for TV and Film or Writing and Video & Computer Games, what I often lacked was any idea as to the set of tools I might want to consider in my creative process. Since taking up meditation and so on, I have been ‘offered’ and have indeed researched very many Formulaic Blueprints from various Guru’s, and a quick search would probably turn up thousands of such Blueprints, though I still prefer to bias toward my own subject and topic preferences, and this is one such example.

Attachment Theory – Thais Gibson – Strange though true, I purchased this particular book, not in order to improve my attachments, so much as to develop appropriate strategies for developing sensible boundaries, discipline and navigation surrounding these issues. The Meditation Technology and courses, can do much of the work for us, although as always it is often suggested that our Attachments are often what cause many of our individual and collective sufferings, so it can be interesting to research beyond your attachment to the Teachings of one company or guru.

The Robot and Automation Almanac – Jason Schenker – This is a kindle unlimited work, and covers an interest of mine, although I think having read this author previously, this author tends toward light general reading output, rather than the depth and breadth of research I might prefer.

Gassed: British Chemical Warfare… – Robert Evans – This is a history of the activities, that are said to have been carried out at Porton Down Laboratory within the United Kingdom, and I have this particular book this week, due to its availability within Kindle Unlimited.

Superfans – Pat Flynn – So I earlier spoke of Blueprints, and this is perhaps a typical work from someone within the Social Media Realms, in regard of these issues. Although it is a genre I have mostly avoided. I grew up in an age of limited TV Channels and shows, and there was often a feeling that people had Skills and Talents to have achieved celebrity, (no its not necessarily true) , then came the growth in Satellite TV and Cable and then the Internet and each new format came with a generation of programmes full of people being a Celebrity for being a Celebrity, where questions such-as what do you do? what are your skills? are swiftly sidestepped in preference to self promotion and that of the sponsors etc. By the Dawn of 24/7 News and Now – Social Media Realms we are finding that many of these people are ‘out of there depth’ due to the attention economy, and the audience expectation for expertise. I think many Celebrities, Actors, Singers and so on are great for the skill and talent that gave rise to there fame & fortune during my younger years, though often find myself aghast at the undisclosed views later revealed that would likely have ensured they never achieved fame in the first place. They might be too rich, too care of course, though it does not bode well for younger generations brought up surrounded by all these outputs.

The Right Story – Bernadette Jiwa – I have several books by this author within my Library that I quite like, and this one was on offer so I thought why not.

Digital Minimalism – Cal Newport – So this might actually describe me in some ways, I loved Technology all my life, and even returned to University in later life, to Study and fill in the gaps within my knowledge etc. Then came the Social Media explosion of the mid 2000’s and I having been at University with likeminded individuals, had high hopes & so on for these new online realms, I was having a bad offline experience in my own life and World at that time, and my online experience rapidly descended into one undesirable experience after another (where previously I had thought online realms might provide a sanctuary (so to speak)), – one I had no control over the output of others, nor did I have control over the Social Media Platforms, or their App creators who often used sweeping permissions to harvest everyone’s data, or splinter their rapidly expanding business models. As quickly as I sought to set Privacy to High, The Platform or an App (historically given permission too) would set such permissions to low again. In realising how little control I had over ‘other peoples stuff’ or even my own stuff, the obvious solution was to either try and start over elsewhere, where similar experiences were reportedly widespread across all Social Media, or simply ‘go minimalist’. I chose to go minimalist, and that was the period I had turned to Hypnosis in wanting to get to the root causes of my various issues, and that in turn led to Meditation Technology. my Digital Minimalism was that I had many – mostly unused online accounts with various providers, and for several years 2010-2013 mostly only interacted on the Centerpointe Blog, prior to beginning this Blog of my own, sometime around 2013 (I think). Anyway I did until 2016 perhaps continue in that Digital Minimalism whilst continuing to Meditate and do courses etc. The Centerpointe Blog seemed as though it was mostly safe, due to the Companies Discipline, and indeed having your own Blogsite (and your own rules) is perhaps better than other platforms such-as Social Media and News Media – where the free for all and in-gangs often make them appear as though the inmates have taken over the asylum.

Content Design – Sarah Richards – This is another Blueprint for designing integrated services, as used by the Government (apparently) although I happened to find the book in kindle unlimited, so thought I might have a look etc.

Questions Are The Answer – Hal B Gregersen – So you can never have enough books on asking questions, just as you can perhaps never have enough books on breathing techniques, the Question’s I often wonder upon are who do these strategies work for, I say that not in the spirit of critism, so much as my own experience of The Meditation Technology often being the difference of my experience with regard to these things.

Reinventing The Sacred – Stuart Kaufman – This chap is another well regarded author whose works I have not necessarily seen or read previously, and this book was being sold as a bargain so I thought I might take the opportunity to see if I agree with the consensus.

Entitled – A Critical History of the Aristocracy – Chris Bryant – This book was another bargain, though perhaps delves into another topic I have been thinking upon recently with regard to issues of Sabotage and the mistaken belief or faith and so on, we often place in various peoples, or institutions, or indeed modern media realms or technologists etc. Whilst this book talks of the Aristocracy – I like to think many such books are microcosms of very many life realms, that asks those questions – what lies beneath?

So this next selection could be an image to far you say, well let us find out.

Prisoners Of Geography – Tim Marshall – Not sure why I chose this book, beyond of course, having felt as though I myself have been a prisoner of Geography for much of my years. And now of course with these Worldwide lockdowns – I am perhaps no longer alone in such a belief, although anyone of us should be reminded that wherever we go – our troubles go with us, assuming we carry them around within our own hearts, minds and bodies. This book was a bargain, so worth having a look at in terms of the modern day Geopolitical Order etc.

How We Got To Now – Steven Johnson – Well this is another bargain and like many books has a possible double-entendre in the title. He perhaps speaking on the history of creativity and innovation up til this point or period in time, though ‘now’ – for me at least has a differing meaning to the standard usage, I might have assumed prior to Meditation Courses and Technology etc. An example is my middle name SIMON – if you reflect or turn that SIMON upside down, you can see the word now as part of that name. Although admittedly I have not always paid conscious attention to such artistic details.

Blockbusters – Anita Elberse – So this book is another Blueprint or roadmap to success or Stardom etc. and I think this has been a theme this week, all those folks in lockdown with little or nothing to do, have perhaps had opportunity to develop short medium long range blueprints for themselves or indeed study those of others. For me, I have on several occasion spoken of my thoughts as to developing my own version of a Ready Player One Zone or Realm – that is completely free of excessive drama and nonsense etc. Though I am sure even these kind of Blockbuster Blueprints can contribute toward my own blueprint design etc.

Sublime Dreams Of Living Machines – Minsoo Kang – This is another indulgence as to my study of robotics and so on, the title might be a reference to Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (Phillip K Dick), and of course part of my reason for upgrading my Smartphone recently was related to longer life energy usage and so on. The new phone, has excellent energy statistics etc. My Meditation Technology Binaurial Beats are of course an energy pulse, perhaps made of an oscillating sine wave, just as your favourite music are all sine waves etc. Some of peoples favourite songs refer to Energy ‘She’s Electric’ Oasis, “Electric Dreams” Phil Oakey. That a digression, although it does go to the Heart of those so-called Turing Tests and ideas such-as artificial consciousness or how can you define consciousness or intelligence of a machine etc.

Where Good Ideas Come From – Steven Johnson – Sharped eyed individuals will note I already purchased a book from this chap. I think both books were cheap enough to have a look and see if what he has to say adds anything new to the debate on these things.

The (Mis)behaviour Of Markets – Benoit Mandelbrot – I first encountered Fractals within graphical computer demo’s on my Commodore Amiga computers, very many years ago now and was captivated by them. They also of course used in a wide range of modern day realms as they are suggested to demonstrate patterns of cycles found in nature and in more modern times within so-called financial markets. Now many of us who grew up with or have lived through undesirable circumstances, perhaps do not want to follow the cycles & patterns of our parents and families, or so-called social class backgrounds, or even those who are celebrated and famous, or even those who write blueprint books on such things, they are often invented & maintained by various identity politic groupings, though how do you break with such things – especially if they cause so many people so much harm? That is of course part of the reason I took up Meditation etc. Though this perhaps good as a financial book, because it potentially contributes to this idea of identifying the money in communication – that I have spoken upon at various points over the years.

So that is rather a large selection of books for me to get through this week. What of the Title – well it could be suggested that Yin and Yang are said to represent Masculine and Feminine and of course some suggest that the differing hemispheres of the brain represent these things too, and that may well be why so many of us, experience self sabotaging behaviours, though the lack of Whole Brain Thinking and communication between hemispheres, as well as with those we encounter in the external World (who may have similar issues).

So I took up Meditation that promised improvements in Whole Brain Communication and indeed, have done many a course, that speaks on whole brain thinking and a integrative mind and so on. Just as you may have your own agenda as to who and how you identify and want to survive and thrive and live your life and so on, other people of course have their own agenda as to these matters, and the further I have continued into my meditations, the more it can seem that self sabotage, is often rooted in the accumulation of non-conscious agenda’s from not just those who we do not necessarily identify with or see as other, so much as the agenda’s of those closest to us and so on.

That is perhaps where I am at now, having previously thought I had rid myself of the count of Threshold experiences and replaced them with a raised Threshold, I am kind of at a plateau, where it seems, I may have to create and craft a more thorough and deliberated blueprint of my own, that whilst being respectful of family and friends and guru’s I have followed and so on, is based around a certain level of my own experience and skillsets, and a requirement for greater autonomous agency or independence of life choices and options, in these matters.

So if you had to write an ‘I have a dream’ speech…

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well.

And Then Amidst All The Chaos

Being created & crafted by the rise of populism and World-wide Global Brexit-19 Covid Crews, was the news that Space Force was Officially being brought into being as a new 6th wing of United States Military Industrial Complex. Actually when you are looking for something cheerful, and love Science Fiction and so on, you do come to realise that even when such things are mocked in some quarters, that it usually requires Government Funding and Governmental Leadership to spear head into those kind of excessively expensive research & development arena’s, and of course irrespective of thoughts and feelings regarding any given era’s President and the policies that they pursue elsewhere within the broader range of Political discourse. Where can I get me one of those Sharpies (lol) Though I did actually think the Flag Heraldry rather good, in its simplicity of design, and explanation of meaning and so on.

Lets start again shall we..

And then amidst all the chaos being created & crafted the the rise of populism and World-wide Global Brexit-19 Covid Crews, someone decided to check-in with that more quieter & introverted Meditators backwater blog and see what he was presently doing, well I have mostly continued in my rather mundane life, that often consists of eat, sleep, work, repeat, throughout the week; with a light sprinkling of catching up on news, or family and various hobbies and interests etc.

Whilst many individuals are perhaps coming to terms with the potential undesirability of such an existence, having had it enforced upon them in recent weeks, I do have to say that circumstances were such, within my own life, a few years ago now, that Heavy Duty Meditation combined with super procrastination, whilst I sought to reduce my own life – inner & outer World ‘sufferings’ seemed the most appropriate strategy, when all the World seemingly had to offer were repeats of what had gone before.

I recently upgraded my Smartphone to my first Android Smartphone and that has typically given me something of a Brilliantly Fantastic WOW surprise, in just how many bells and whistles and apps and functionalities I had been missing out on, due to the limitations of my previous smartphone selections. I have had something like 3 phones over the course of 10 years, where many a person has probably had at least half a dozen, they complying with the demand to upgrade and ‘keeping up with the celebrities etc.’ So it is a 5G future proofed phone, that young people, such-as my daughter or trend followers would say is wasted on me, though I genuinely feel as though I have earned the right to treat myself on occasion, and I am not looking for permission, or social credibility etc. Strange though true multiple websites look far improved and better on this new smartphone via their own apps than they ever did on my old 4G model, though hopefully this time around, i have selected a popular format that has already succeeded in this generations version of the Format Wars.

So what kind of books have I been checking out? That is a good question, it often feels as though you are going through the cyclic repetitions to a certain extent, and I have not been particularly happy with some of the content that has been appearing within my lists in recent months, particular subjects, topics, or politics are in that ‘been their, done that, not engaging in that debate’ waste basket. Very often it seems to me because whilst I can purchase any number of books on Interview Techniques and Questioning Strategies and so on, those believed to do those thing on our behalf – within many broadcast media, often steadfastly refuse to go where many ‘civilian’ questioners such-as I might go, in terms of nailed down meaning, whether regarded as being objective or being subjective. Some say it is due to the symbiotic nature of inter-relational format wars, though for me, I think it has simply been a continuation of the ‘dumbing society & communities down”, that can be demonstrated throughout the Historical Record. No I am not complaining that we have better & improved Sciences and Technologies, that means we are effectively using tools to do much of the work for us, so much as think that we still require basic thinking & living and navigating skills that will never go out of fashion, when push comes to shove, or crisis happens.

So let us begin

These first four New Books and the reason I got them are as follows.

Unit Operations – Ian Bogost – The write-up for this particular books suggests the writer has gone into the realm of cross-realm-intelligence, in terms of criticism as seen in Video Games compared with Criticism in Literature, or Criticism in Movies and so on. I have no idea as to how comparable his experience is with my own investigations in this particular investigative arena, though his back catalogue of books provides a kind of history of his own advancement. Game Criticism perhaps started in my own youth with all those early Newsfield Publications that I read such-as Crash Magazine and Zzap64 or others such-as PC Gamer. In typical fashion other Realms whether Literary or Film or TV and so on, always seem to manage to look on aghast at the New Young Pretenders to the Throne, much as Long established Newspaper Platforms look on Aghast at Social Media Platforms in the Modern Age. Something of a chaotic free for all now exists, and one does wonder as to when some Unified Internationalist Governmental Intervention is going to occur. Although returning to The World of Games, it is now a multi-billion dollar realm, and it can be handy to do those comparative home works, especially in this age of ever growing Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Realities, where it can seem we are fast heading toward a point of having members of society and various populations being unable to know where any differences exist within sensory perceptions of subjective / objective or dreamed up realities.

Get The Truth – Phillip Houston – this was a bargain basement purchase, and apparently tells of CIA developed strategies and behaviours or coercive persuasion, although I am not expecting to find anything new, it does kind of fit in with studies of Spy craft and behavioural psychology and so on. The kind of general reading book where hopes are high, expectations are low.

Medieval Robots – E.R. Truitt – this is another book within that realm of exploring history, and the early advancements of scientific progress etc. within the arena of humans seeking to create robotics, this is a pet topic of mine, that I perhaps over-indulge, though it is often amazing how many of these books genuinely have a certain uniqueness found within there individual pages, where it can seem within many an other investigative realm or topic sphere, that they have long run out of new discoveries, and are playing pass the parcel with the same cycles and patterns of data and reports from said data.

A New Kind Of Science – Stephen Wolfram – this came with interesting reviews, and although so-called Complexity Theory is not new to me (personally) I do think it can be handy to have such a large volume within your collection as a handy reference tool, the sheer size of this book suggests a great deal of study and work has gone into this particular book. He basically made the case for the empiric study of computation for its own sake.

So many of these issues take us back to these ideas surrounding Nature Versus Nurture, something some of us have found ourselves finding is really more of a Nurture Vs Nurture belief issue, that has to be experienced on an individual basis, as no amount of other people telling us, is likely to give us the mental breakthroughs and shifts, that those of us who have tried products such-as The Holosync Solution Meditation Technology have experienced.

These next books perhaps bring me to wondering what I was unconsciously thinking about when I purchased them.

Cognitive Gadgets – Cecilia Heyes – This book potentially controversial as the last book in the sense of suggesting that all we actually have is a Nurture Vs Nurture debate, regarding the thinking and cognition we develop in our early years and so on, rather than some over-invested belief of ‘its in my genes’ excuses and so on. We are more influenced by our family and social environments in our early years development, than some sectors of society and Science want us to believe. This is a bias that fits some of the conclusions of my own Meditation Experience, although as always, you do find that the ideas of gene research and cognition research can be complementary to each other rather than having any requirement to go to entrenched ‘never the twain positions of debate.

Reset – David Sawyer – This was within Kindle Unlimited – and as can be seen within my next image, I decided to check out several such books this week.

Hacking The Code – This is a popular generalist styled book regarding the topic of Genetics and Crispr and as we are seeing much regarding these topics in the news, thought I would add to my research within that sphere.

The Science Of Harry Potter – Mark Brake – So a couple of weeks ago, I purchased a couple of books that I suggested I might have purchased at a younger time of life, related to my interest in Space and Futuristic Science Fiction, and this is another such work this time in support of my interest in Sword and Sorcery Fantasy Styled Realms. Take the Magic of Harry Potter Realms and compare to real World Science etc.

Lifespan – Dr David A Sinclair – This book was another bargain basement, although it does go into this idea of Bio-hacking and so on, again probably related to Genes research, and therapies for life extension and so on, their seems to be quite a market for these kind of things for a generation of boomer Americans, used to ‘get what you pay for’ Medical Services and so on.

How To Speak Machine – John Maeda – As I understood it, this is actually a Design realm related book, so whilst the title might be a little confusing for the non computer oriented individual, and again whilst I learned many such things whilst at University (studying Computer Science & AI), many years ago, I do like to keep an eye on ideas surrounding product production and process cycles and frameworks and scaffolds and so on, as it goes back to how we often spend our lives filling up on content – when an in depth study or knowledge of frameworks and scaffolds and process and so, can be ever so more empowering and rewarding at any time of life for any individual, within any sphere of life.

And finally these are all Kindle Unlimited Freebies, though unsure as to for how long, or indeed whether I can benefit from such titles.

The Art Of Mental Models – Joseph Fowler – this another book that seeks to explain when a particular mental model or thinking strategy is best matched to a particular realm topic or subject, in decision making (I assume).

The Gaslighting Recovery Workbook, So we have seen this term ‘Gaslighting’ appear quite a lot in recent years, and very often it is used in a context of Females being ‘Gaslighted’ by Males. Although a very simple and often widely unacknowledged truth or conclusion that my own meditation and research often leads to is that potentially anyone – MAN, WOMAN or CHILD, can be gaslighted by anyone else – MAN, WOMAN or CHILD, whom they come into contact with or are exposed to, at any age and within any arena or realm of life. Many of us have, or accumulate so much baggage surrounding these topics and issues, that it gets somewhat compartmentalised or unacknowledged, and repressed, and that is because it can often seem that such behaviours are commonly accepted within Establishment Realms and Entertainments and Societal Broadcasters and even Journalistic Realms gaslighting sectors of their readership etc. this is even more prevalent within the Modern sphere of Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere, Social Media Realms, where multiple generations of people have become hit & run commentators, having grown accustomed to being a law unto themselves such is the lax policing of many Social Media Realms or Bias of Moderators within Journalistic Realms and various online echo chambers. It might even be suggested that several World Leaders and Governments and Media Realms have been conducting a strategy of Gaslighting, upon their own populations, with regard to recent United Kingdom Brexit Debate and Now this Coronavirus Pandemic. Though that would probably take someone with an appropriate comparative EXPERTISE qualification to conclude, though the evidence is their (IMHO) for those who are well studied or even unqualified in such things.

The Future After Covid – I have no idea if anything within this kindle unlimited book, will be relevant to me, or anyone else when the dust finally settles on these present World Wide troubles, though it was interesting just how many Pandemic & Covid related books are now appearing – all rushed out and often simply regurgitations of what some sectors of expertise have been saying for some time. Much like a stopped clock is correct a couple of times a day. It is a Freebie for me, and so I can show appreciation and gratitude, that even were I not finding anything of benefit within such works, I do have access, to come to such a conclusion.

So these like many books, will be sorted into various categories, and decision will be made as to a like or dislike ranking or spectrum of bias and so on. Over the longer term of having conducted regular buying and reading of many realm studies, you do find that some books or authors really do have long lasting appeal of being returned to over others, and indeed that some books easily glossed over or yawned through, only come into there own at a later time, when greater or lesser detail is required for your research at that time.

So will I stop or ever properly review each book that I have been purchasing, well that has been something I have considered, though it is such a competitive opinion market out-there that If I do, it is more likely to be for my own ‘doing it for myself’ guide, rather than necessarily to claim expertise in such matters, so many subjects and realms so little time.

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well!

Star Self

So last week I purchased a couple of books featuring the word STAR and of course, both referenced what we generally regard as Stars in the night Sky or beyond our planet. Although typically at some point someone decided that people who perform or demonstrated particular skillsets might be referred to as Stars as well. More recent times has of course seen the explosion in Global Worldwide Social media formats and that typically comes with the sell of BE THE STAR OF YOUR OWN WEBPAGES AND SOCIAL MEDIA PAGE and all that jazz. Very many people throughout the World have taken advantage of these offers and some platforms and people are more popular than others, though the ability to STAR in your own publicised Global Dominion is one that clearly is unlikely to go out of fashion. Very large numbers actually using the platforms in any number of ways from selling or advertising there own brands and goods to promoting the brands and goods of others whilst showing audiences what good fun they are as entertainers etc.

Anyway possibly more about that later though for now some of the recent book purchases.

Okay so they are not all recent purchases, I often find myself re-referencing Ken Wilbur books in relation to his Ideas surrounding INTEGRAL often described as INCLUSIVITY. He also typically seeks to bring together Science with so-called Holistic & Spiritual Practices.

MEGABRAIN – Now believe it or otherwise, whilst I have spent a fair bit of money over the years on products from Centerpointe and Affiliates, early on I went quite quickly through some provided information’s and reference sources and so on, and whilst I took to purchasing quoted or recommended books further along in my meditative practice, early on I was somewhat overwhelmed by all the support material from Centerpointe themselves – so much was given that it did not seem necessary to check up on references and sources etc. So this week I thought I shall go back and look at some quoted or referenced works that I previously did not feel any impulse to check upon. This is such a book and apparently provides further information on the idea of dissipative structures and laws of Thermodynamics and so on. In honesty whilst it might be an absolutely fantastic book, the name itself is somewhat off-putting for someone from the United Kingdom over the age of 21, and as Centerpointe Research Institute themselves suggest, they genuinely have and do provide all that you need to get the best out of The Holosync Solution – so no one should feel a requirement to buy the books just because this David has.

Born A Healer – Master Chunyi Lin – So I had a really bad experience following the usage of so-called Hypnosis products, prior to my early usage of Holosync, and in typical fashion, I found myself getting emails from various affiliates, so it could be suggested that at that point in time, I was non too pleased at getting all the mail from Learning Strategies among others, due to what I believed they or there pupils had done to myself, through affiliate Hypnosis tools etc. So anyway after a little while of Holosync usage, my attitude shifted a little and I think one of, if not the earliest Learning Strategies Product that I bought directly from that Company was Spring Forest Qigong. I really enjoyed trying out Qigong and went on to purchase several other products & courses related to Qigong or featuring Chunyi Lin. I also on several occasions over the years searched for books by or about Chunyi Lin and was somewhat frustrated that none seemed to exist beyond course manuals & videos etc. Anyway I was recently offered opportunity to purchase a course entitled ‘Deep Healing For Health Conditions’, containing a somewhat all-inclusive all-encompassing lifetimes worth of Holistic Qigong knowledge & practices known to alleviate and assist in recovery from very many medically diagnosed health ailments. So as an afterthought to receiving emails regarding that particular course, I thought I might look again for any books etc. and found this 2019 publication.

I can also thank my ex-wife and daughter at this point because my ex-wife had chosen my daughters names and in a somewhat invented tradition had named my daughter Gwanwyn Rose – whilst she has always been known as Rose or Rosey, her Welsh first name is actually the Welsh word for Spring, and it was this tidbit of information that that caused me to buy the Qigong course from Learning Strategies. Yes the elder daughter known as Daisy who featured in the (June 29th 2013) Princess Diana Posting, is actually Meghan Daisy, any La-Di-Da links or thoughts as to recent Star Wars movie actresses or the Duchess of Sussex are your own. Happy 1st Birthday to Harry & Meghan’s son Archie, whom judging by the recently posted SaveTheChildren Duck Rabbit Storytelling video has a great deal of curiosity about the World, and is going to keep his parents extremely busy.

Fit For Life – Harvey Diamond – This was mentioned within early Centerpointe Literature, and I must admit that my family has rather a large selection of cook books and so on, so I perhaps do not require it, though given this idea as to investigating early Holosync Related references I have added the book anyway.

Holotropic Breathwork – Stanislav Grof – This author has multiple books available and I purchased one that is available on Kindle, although it was not the referenced work. I purchased this book due to how many courses I have done that pay attention to breathing techniques and so on. Interestingly I would probably reject several of this authors books, because they are about drug usage etc. Although I know from a Meditative Holistic viewpoint, that you can often only achieve higher levels of Awareness, Enlightenment through taking complete Responsibility for yourself and World and that often includes having to deal with the things you would, or have rejected in your own life, as well as those things you want, even if you have never broken one of the ten commandments, chances are at some point within your life you may have consciously or unconsciously experienced / witnessed – read, viewed a film or TV show, or heard a radio discussion that featured so-called divisive topics and subject matter. Does exposure help (not in my opinion), though in terms of releasing what you already have accumulated within mind, Heart and Body, I think if you are using a Technology such-as Holosync and already have a raised Threshold, then it can be useful in terms of releasing, what you may or may not have already within you, through bringing a conscious focus to a given topic or subject, and the thoughts feelings and meanings or otherwise triggered within yourself.

The Nature of Technology – this simply a bargain that I noticed whilst searching for other stuff and thought well why not, as it kind of related to another topic that I was looking to buy for this week.

The other topic was akin to this idea of Man’s Search For Meanings etc. Although in this case it, because of my own lifelong love of Technology and Science Fiction etc. I tend toward those books that are Technologically oriented and often related to Science and The Materialist Version of Reality. Where many Meditative books bring an Holistic Balance and Equilibrium that I was perhaps lacking in my younger years.

The Restless Clock – This is typical of the kind of book that I as someone who loves ideas as to Robots and Androids etc. loves to get, and I have several in my collection already, as well as those awaiting purchase in my Kindle wish list. They usually discuss progress down through the ages and typically have often through Science especially taken us toward this idea of the human body as a machine or mechanism, that often leaves out anything more spiritual such-as Meditation and Holistic Worldviews and so on.

The Way To Vibrant Health – Dr Alexander Lowen – Again this is another Author who is referenced within Centerpointe Literature – mainly in relation to his Bio-energetics related works. Again this is not the directly referenced book, as that is not available on kindle, though this one is, and is a continuation from the first Bio-Energetics book.

I thought this book would help as it relates to mind and body exercises and, much like many early recommended referenced works prepares the groundwork for individuals, customers, accepting or bringing people to awareness and enlightenment that their really are other plains of reality and existence out there, beyond the Mechanistic Materialistic Secularist cultivated World that most of us grow up accepting as Scientific Reality etc. through our schooling and Entertainment and Technological advancements etc. hence I often repeating that if my EXPERIENCE of Holosync is anything to go by, then people really should try it themselves and Experience the changes within their own lives for themselves etc. There really is a certain level of Best of Both Worlds approach in the sense that Technology Science really can go hand in hand with Holistic Spirituality etc. and many of these people have been using and developing products for many years.

Superminds – Thomas Malone – this is another bargain, and apparently goes into this arena of computers and peoples thinking together. Not sure as to what to expect, though it perhaps potentially goes back to this idea that the World already is a kind of supercomputer, only most of the components (Humans) that make up such systems are unaware that they are themselves, some part of a greater Whole etc.

Yes I have several other books I am considering buying though thought I would wait at the present time, today is of course VE Day, and I am sure that many people will do what they can to make any respectful contribution that they are able, under the present circumstances.

As for the Title of today Star Self – well this blog is my blog under my own name etc. So I should perhaps do as many outlets do and not publish images of other peoples stuff within all these books etc. What ever happened to developing my own skillsets and expertise etc. Well I certainly had many such intentions and from a young age to be successful, and indeed can make various claims as to having been well schooled in terms of certain types of Education and further Education etc. That is of course meandering instead of setting out with a plan and sticking to the plan etc. To many of us in the modern World to quickly distracted and looking for filters, when the best Mental Health Techniques and Strategies are seemingly about stripping away all the accumulated Filters and mental compartmentalisations we accumulate throughout our lives, even though in many a circumstance such things can serve us well in terms of discernment – perhaps we require discernment without blindfolds etc.

I recently heard that a former Dr Who writer has written a prequal to a favoured Episode of both me and my daughter Rosey called “The Girl In The Fireplace” this was where a giant spaceship run by robots in the Future, were monitoring or witnessing the Life of the Woman whom the spaceship was named after, at differing stages of her life, through portal type windows. They were apparently waiting for when she was at a certain age, prior to then intending to take her brain, in the mistaken logical belief that it could run the spaceship.

The Spaceship was a kind of timeless NOW Platform from which the mechanical machine androids were Witnessing the Woman’s entire life, from child to teen to adulthood via differing portals or Windows upon the World, and this is the kind of World viewpoint that advanced Meditators and Holosync users can gain, and indeed the kind of awareness or enlightenment that multiple Learning Strategy styled courses and Paraliminal technology can also bring about, although what you often come to see and learn is not only the Witnessing of others, so much as learning, and witnessing and seeing how you yourself could have handled things differently, within your own life and so on, at a differing point in your own growth and development, had you had the conscious awareness and enlightenment or tools and so on, that you have in your life now, back then etc. (so to speak).

So I have become quit adept at deciding on which of the tools I want to use at any given time, or at least I think I have, and most recently I thought about having another go at The Walkabout Course with David Rubenstein, this was one in which Paraliminals could be listened to through headphones whilst out and about, as I have been continuing to work, The ‘Lockdown’ has mostly been an alternative FACT to me and my own life and World, as I am sure it is to many who have continued to work and so on. This course utilised a particular breathing technique and also encourages or brings about better usage of body kinesiology for balance and posture and so on.

I also found myself thinking on Paraliminal Resets. The reason in this instance was that the entire World has in a way kind of slowed down and forced people to come to a standstill in various areas and aspects of their day to day lives, and I thought that in recent times, I have not been happy with the way my life starting to go off track, when I started exploring and interacting on Social Media Realms such-as Twitter and Guardian News Media, kind of losing my bearings a little bit after several years of kind of finding my own mental balance and equillibrium or centering of myself and my life and World, through regular Meditative Practice and usage of Holosync and Learning Strategy courses. So I thought I might see if I can use the Reset styled courses to Navigate back to a more Happier uplifting rewarding place, than the Global Media Mafia’s seemingly want people to be at the present time.

Anyway I have not yet decided on my next course of action, although I do know that today I will be thinking on both my sets of Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, who all served in various capacities during WWII. When my Grandfather on my mothers side died, and I was asked if I wanted anything as a trinket, I chose his service issue Compass, that he himself had kept, he had served in North Africa against Rommel, and lost multiple colleagues in an air raid, he himself had at least one visible lifelong bullet scar wound. Had he and many of his colleagues not survived of course, many of us younger generations would ourselves not exist, so these things do tend toward thinking on how different the World might be. The Compass might not be everyone’s choice of memorabilia though I was most definitely reminded of that when years later, I purchased a Marie Diamond Course that required Compass usage, and of course, the ancient compass had perhaps lost its magnetism even by the time my Grandfather showed it to me, though Navigation and Wayfinding in the modern Age perhaps requires a return to basics and foundational thoughts, feelings and behaviours – learning to walk before we can run etc. at any time of life, when things do not run according to the scripts and strategies and plans we may have intended for ourselves, friends, family and colleagues etc.

So without further ado

Thank you for reading, God Bless and Be Well.
