Such is the conundrum of the matrix world. No matter what we do every part of this manufactured world is about putting us on a conveyer belt when we are born and selling us shoes, games, bread, circuses, and candy until we die where we fall off of the conveyer into the crematorium of forgotton souls.

Will our childeren ride an even worse ride, will we wake up and kill consumerist culture, will the human spirit once again conquer the systems of control has yet to be seen.

Good but cerebral. Watch this first Alan Watts Trey and Matt vid and rewatch even. Let it all sink in deeply. Then move on to this next one maybe. Just shows you the problem, and doesn't offer any solutions. But isn't that more of the way reality really occurs as we move thru time and space.

This short visceral clip hits you hard in the guts. As you become a single pearl in the pearly gates necklace of the world to come.

The Truth About Xultation - Cloud Atlas

I think of my grandparents who have already gotten to the end of that conveyor belt, and weep at what this Depeche Mode existence truly is.

It's there, just not as prevalent anymore cos it's seen as gaudy or cheezy. (which isn't to say cheese isn't appreciated, but you're seen as a fedora type and many cringes will be had)

Fedoras are available for a price of 19g of gold, or 0.003 BTC.

When Goats have dual US - Kekistanian citizenship like our dual passported layabout (((Overlords))), I'll stop hating distant darks, hooknoses, and sand snakes unconditionally.

If I can't ever see him, hear him, or feel him, why should I believe in him? I see Christianity adding value to some lives and not to many others. Many people use Christianity as an emotional crutch to their otherwise broken mind. I'm not saying my mind isn't equally broken, but I don't wish to cover the parts that are.

I'd like to believe there's a God and I don't see how this world could come about by chance, but I haven't experienced anything compelling directly or indirectly.

"What's in it for me?" is not the most useful question, though Christ does have an answer for that.

Thats your individual choice to believe goatbrother, but not at all what a Gulch is about.

If you can take those beliefs and mix them with your skills and capital.

You may peddle your wares in our gulch agora at your chosen price, and we will buy or not buy, offering you full value in return.

Jesus traded healing skills and motivational speeches in exchange for food drink and lodging.

We would demand you do likewise or ask you to leave.

Peace and zero aggression be with you.

I would look at manliness as consisting of various levels of density.

The sun is only a quarter as dense on average as the Earth. A manly flame of molasses to be sure, but far less real and solid than we who live here on Earth have to be. Nothing in the solar system is as dense as us even. We are it.

To be the man means to be the long cooled rock foundation. And the 4000 mile deep churnings of lifes glowing energy and motive force. We must be the molten core battery pack that powers all of living reality and keeps life living and thriving, to the best of our unique abilities and inabilities allow.

Also we need to be the water to drink. The air to breathe. All the fun things women like to be. Who out of love and fondness we enable women to be unashamedly it is hoped, so that they're rarely if ever hard called to self fragment as unstoppable parabolic arded killing stones or bottomless drowning pools of liquid plasmatic gas where a 50 billion men and women that have live so far are still to be encountered, if only we have precise enough perceptive tools.

Everything on the X chromosone. Who we usually to defer to women, is also inside of us. We have a single X and must take final responsibility to be the fulcrum the moves even the sun if ever it shoud turn Red Giant and try to suck us and all that we hold dear into its abysmal eternal servitude.

You have already died. And been born every day of your life anew. If only you could better use even 20% of your glorious thinking neuronal tissue.

I have fought sometimes far beyond reason. Other times, turned tail and ran away shamelessly like the most abject coward. I value life and want all the diems I can carpe within reason.

Thats why I need a Gulch. So I can live a more thoroughly honorable and more meaningfully and closely packed dense and vaporous ephemeral life in the feet firmly always on the ground now. And the light photons ephemerally radiating on my face way.

Which always and forever all we truly have in the long run. Until we have nothing and are just echoes and ripplings in our fellow kin and kith.

I like the Dresden files for its depiction of Michael Carpenter, a man of god who fights literal demons. He's a genuinely good, principled man who still seems believable and grounded.

Good to know. I like Robert Heinlein, a man of word who writes about literally everything. He's a genuinely good, principled man whose stories seem believable and scientifically grounded.

Amen. I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine. And I mean it!

:) being true to yourself is very important. Know yourself, know the enemy and victory is assured.
