Now, Where was I?

Demon possessed.

I have been shown signs of unearthly disturbances.
There are traces...


Duh Duh Duh DUUUH!!!

They are watching you.
Be afraid, be very afraid.

Free will in Christianity

Even feathers fall

Everything is foreseen;
Yet free will is given.

Is it not your law that govern us, from Order to Chaos?
(see 2nd law of thermodynamics)
Is it not instinct to place a cup where it will not crash?
(see common sense)

This once again is beyond the feeble understanding
of our pathetic organic life.

We are not to question,
for the creator lies beyond the shores of time and space.

The beginning,
Having seen the end,
Chose humanity's land,
The edge of his hand.

Gone the way

Gone to the other side

By twice the speed of gravity
Worn out by my depravity

I'm breathing in disunity
And breathing out insanity

I'm trapped inside infinity
And have lost sight of the trinity

I'm looking at fatality
Like a skeleton's eternity

This has to be the best of me
No words are yet engaged
Everyday I picked up a line
But it's gonna be the same as well

Sleeping though it all

Art by: vimak

Darkness Comes,
Feelings Fleet.
Alive Again,
At End Of Sleep.
(except from somewhere)

Interesting Facts about Sleep.
From The National Sleepy Heads

- The continuous brain recordings that led to the discovery of REM (rapid eye-movement) sleep were not done until 1953, partly because the scientists involved were concerned about wasting paper. WTH, these people are cool.

- Dreams, once thought to occur only during REM sleep, also occur (but to a lesser extent) in non-REM sleep phases. It's possible there may not be a single moment of our sleep when we are actually dreamless. Mmh we are still clueless after wasting all that paper.

- REM dreams are characterized by bizarre plots, but non-REM dreams are repetitive and thought-like, with little imagery - obsessively returning to a suspicion you left your mobile phone somewhere, for example. I had some very odd ones, really makes me wonder what is going on in my head.

- Dreams may not serve any purpose at all but be merely a meaningless byproduct of two evolutionary adaptations - sleep and consciousness. This statement does not explain anything, it is a byproduct of PHDs and waste paper

- Seventeen hours of sustained wakefulness leads to a decrease in performance equivalent to a blood alcohol-level of 0.05%. There is no need for beer!

- The "natural alarm clock" which enables some people to wake up more or less when they want to is caused by a burst of the stress hormone adrenocorticotropin. Researchers say this reflects an unconscious anticipation of the stress of waking up. Mmmh. Nice to know.

- Experts say one of the most alluring sleep distractions is the 24-hour accessibility of the internet. Yes that is so true for me.

The Mirror Stares back

I recently grabbed a DVD; Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.
A Cyberpunk Philosophical Drama.
Mamoru Oshii, I am a big fan.

I highly recommend it,
the setup is both thought and visually stimulating.
Deep, but explained.

Bravo to the CG, both 2D and 3D,
Noting that production was more than 10 years ago.

The art direction somewhat changed from the first series,
Characters have much more depth,
More strained, emotional and strangely more believable.

There are many interesting lines in this very intense film.
And these are some of my favorites:

We weep for the blood of a bird, but not for the blood of a fish.
Blessed are those with a voice.
If the dolls also had voices,
I bet they would have screamed,
"I didn't want to become human."

"Let a person walk alone with few wishes,
committing no wrong,
like elephants in the forest"

(Based on a Buddhist Poem)

"Who can gaze into the mirror without becoming evil?
The mirror does not reflect evil, but creates it."

(Based on Friedrich Nietzsche's quote:
"He who fights with monsters should be careful lest
he thereby become a monster.
And if thou gaze long into an abyss,
the abyss will also gaze into thee")

A boat beneath a sunny sky

Through the Looking Glass

A boat beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July --

Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear --

Long had paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die.
Autumn frosts have slain July.

Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.

Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream --
Lingering in the golden gleam --
Life, what is it but a dream?

Except from the original looking glass

English, a Barbaric reference

Burning words

Yesterday was my first take on haiku...
It was fun... destroying the art form with the lemon of English.

I will carry on with my blasphemy... it's fun.

In the name of fun man has done much evil.
If Fun has a name, it would be Excuse.
