Going Numberground

I seem to be telling tales these days - promising articles that are tortoisely slow to appear.

They are under construction.


... But life seems to be extra crooked right now, so I'm going with the warped flow & trusting that I'll get where I thought I was going, at the rite moment.

In the meantime ......

This ponder-theoretical post arises from one of those great conversations that occur when two or more inquiring minds roam freely.

Somewhere in an after school conversation with my son, a yesterday or three ago, a dialogue opened up on numbers & he told me that certain numbers had a certain feel to him.

Funny isn't it you live with someone for years, yet they never lose the power to surprise you (& thank god for that).

What follows are the sensings of a teenager.  My son is quick to point out that his feelings are subtle - yet he never faltered, hesitated or got confused in his descriptions.

I'm presenting these 'sensings' to you because 'ideas beget more ideas'.  

Ideas & information
are tools (& toys).  And God knows, we need ALL the tools & toys can lay our hands & minds on.

I present them also because of the sneaking suspicion that we know a whole lot more than we think we do & it's time to stop denying that.

So let's start with the number 1 - it leads to a past'n'present sync with one of my most popular (she says modestly), articles.

Twinsel Town, also grew out of a conversation with my son.

It was hatched because of the char-actor (Arnold Judas) Rimmer from the English sci-fi comedy series Red Dwarf.

My son says: "Number 1 is like 'Rimmer'."

Wiki says: Rimmer is like this:

"Rimmer's primary character traits include anal-retentiveness, over-adherence to protocol, cowardice, misogyny, and a severely inflated ego matched only by his deep-seated sense of self-loathing".

"You always become the thing you hate the most. 
Look at you, Lister: obnoxious, ruthless, single-minded, insensitive: 
you're more like me than I am." (Rimmer)

Other Rimmer-like personifications for numero uno from my son:-

"Never climb high, not smart enough, pointy, snidey, life's never given them a chance".

Remind you of anything?

Well it reminded me of the unbelievably slow, long-haul crawl of humanity.

You may have heard of humanity - a bunch of eejits who have evolved spiritually, emotionally & psychically at the speed of a one legged centipede on crutches.

Any ONE up for a bit of number play?

The ONE is Dead, Long Live the NEO

I'll bet you thought you were there, for that original release of The ONE, via a red pill, way back in 1999.

You were wrong of course.

But then you & I usually are.

The genie of that bottle was uncorked over a thousand years ago. From the year 1000 AD until 31st December, 1999, history was driven by the number ONE & all the energies that it resonates.

"The 2nd millennium was a period of time that commenced on January 1, 1001 (Arabian Nights anyone?) ...

...[It] encompasses the High Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Early Modern Age ...

 ... the age of Colonialism, industrialization, the rise of nation states, and culminates in the 20th century with the impact of science, widespread education... vaccinations in many nations...

... The centuries of expanding large-scale warfare with high-tech weaponry (of the World Wars and nuclear bombs) ... and the return of the Olympics (lest we forget)."

And what of the lives of the everyday people in that thousand year span, you ask?

"Never climb high, not smart enough, pointy, snidey, life's never given them a chance".

Is this the energy of the ONE, that impacted upon a thousand years of humanity?

How great was the power of that digit to direct the coursing of history?

There's 2 reasons I'm playing with this mad theory & we'll return to them in a moment.

First off I want to present some further subtle numerical sensings - take, leave, question or jettison as you will - just please, please keep keep your damned mind operating.

Number 3:  "Dim, simple, non aggressive, not into conflict or violence"

Number 8:  "Strong but doesn't have a will of it's own / can be used for good or evil"

Number 4:  "Fair, even, stable"

Number 9:   "Black, shiny, corporate  - multi national / dark energy - greed / executor - the number of the people who run this world."

Number 7:  The "Swiss army knife" of numbers - lots of uses / has it's own free will / quite a 'human' number."


And now we come 2 Number 2.

It was the ideas that sprang from my son's take on the number 2, that sent my fingers to the keyboard of this little conjecture-post.

He said: Number 2 is "Cunning - like a fox."

A dictionary defining of 'cunning' =  "skillful in deception; sly; crafty"

I was fascinated by this idea.

I've been researching mythology.

The picture of a trickster emerged & took centre stage.

Previously, on planet Earth, I had read that the number 2 is the number of the feminine & that switching into the new millennium (2000), meant putting the divine feminine firmly in the driving seat, so to speak.

I'm not convinced.

I know not what the divine feminine is, though I'm sure that the twists & marketed turns of the nouvelle feminine have bugger all to do with it.

However ...

... if I put on my seeing aye glasses, I see patterns.

Lots of crafty patterns.

I see ten years of trixstery-ness.

"In mythology, and in the study of folklore and religion, a trickster is a god, goddess, spirit, man, woman, or anthropomorphic animal who plays tricks or otherwise disobeys normal rules and conventional behaviour ... The trickster deity breaks the rules of the gods or nature, sometimes maliciously..." wiki

Back when we were all ONE (last century),  there seemed to be quite delineated markers to life.  Goodly, & badly-ness were reasonably defined.  The outlines of life were kinda visible. Paths were signposted.  Life was progressed through in a somewhat orderly manner. There was an appearance of orderliness in the pattern of life. Or so it seemed to me.

That all changed with the 2nd Coming.

Sorry, you weren't still waiting for it were you?

Tucked into the page where I found ...

... this image, 

were these lyrics :

"Things I once thought
In my life
Have all taken place"

A hymn to the universal trickster perhaps?

What happens if we launch ourselves back into the last ten years, from a different perspective.

What if we go looking for tricksters, jesters, joke-stars?

What happens if we ...

open our eyes & wake up just a little?

Is it possible that we might see that we've been keeping a bunch of clowns very amused, as WE panic-reacted to our world being tipped up & over ...

& over again,

... what if they've been howling with laughter as we swallowed porkies ...

bought into debts...

 sold our souls ...

& purchased shocks & shares in FEAR.

And then of course there's the trickiest of the tricky - the creation of the 51st state of the US of A (52nd if you count Is-real)

Everyone's welcomed into this state - no pas-sporting or fingerprinting necessary - heck you don't even have to have been good.

Actually these days it's a hole lot better if you've been bad.

Very bad.

Welcome to the Untied State of Gender, with it's capital city, Confusion.

The Governor of the State of Gender, Trixie Ortreat has been an outstanding advocate of the New Sex Order.  His/her tireless efforts combined with generous media contributions have led to marked growth in the Same-Sex-Scene-Scenario.  
Experts have long understood that staying home & having sex with friends of your own gender is a far safer alternative to connecting with unknown people of the opposite sex  in new places.

Meanwhile studies in the
Ministry of Degradation have shown very positive & productive trends.  Experts are confidant that within the next ten years, sexual experiences will be plumbing hitherto unimaginable depths.

"Frequently the Trickster figure exhibits gender and form variability, changing gender roles and engaging in same-sex practices. Such figures appear in Native American and First Nations mythologies, where they are said to have a two-spirit nature. Loki, the Norse trickster, also exhibits gender variability, in one case even becoming pregnant; interestingly, he shares the ability to change genders with Odin, the chief Norse deity who also possesses many characteristics of the Trickster." wiki

Certain rumours, like oil (apparently), have surfaced:-

"Wayne Madsen Report: Obama and Emanuel: Members of same gay bath house in Chicago."

While it may be, au naturel, for tricksters to frolic freely with their own gender, I must wonder what price is being extracted from the children of humanity.

This is no diatribe against homosexuality, heterosexuality or even red hot sexuality - go where you will, but go with love.

However this is a diatribe against the Dire Tribe that is de(a)dicated to CON-FUSING the hell out of young human sexuality.  That Dire Tribe IS a malicious bunch.

Do you know how hard it is to try to protect the little ones today? To try & help them keep their feet on the ground long enough that they can make their OWN decisions, long enough for them to hear what their OWN bodies & desires are telling them.

It's so bloody difficult. But never, never, never give up on your children & never underestimate the power of even a grain of truth that is given with love.

The difference between last century & this one seems quite phenomenal.  A world that seemed en route to somewhere shifted gear into chaos with the drowning of two towers in fire.

What an amazing TRICK that was.

What if from then until now we have been spectators of, & reactors to, the greatest magic show of all time.

What if we are now living in a world that runs by very different rules?

The rules of trickery.

The best gift I can leave you with is the work of a man who has been drawing some lines around what may be one of the biggest tricks of our times.

A Nimage (like an image but more fun to write) popped into my waking up mind this morn. T'was the ONE of a Namerican dollar note that I'd spied t'other day. With it, came ...

The Word

"everywhere I go there 1 am"


or as my friend Michael pointed out recently

My One

Remembering ...
"Rimmer's primary character traits include anal-retentiveness, over-adherence to protocol, cowardice, misogyny, and a severely inflated ego matched only by his deep-seated sense of self-loathing."

interesting, n'est-ce pas?
