Rod Serling

There is a sixth dimension,

beyond that which is known to man.

It is a dimension as vast as space

and as timeless as infinity.

It is the middle ground between light and shadow,

and it lies between the pit of man's fears

and the sunlight of his knowledge.

This is the dimension of imagination.

It is an area that might be called The Twilight Zone.

The Extraordinary Beard of Swaran Singh.

You must be wondering if this person Mai ever writes about nonSikh stuff. Yes, she does, occasionally, but not today.

Today she has just finished eating a 7-Layer Burrito (beans, rice, tomato, lettuce, cheese and guacamole all rolled up in a flour tortilla) drenched a Fire Sauce and drinking a liter of half-frozen water.

I am sitting here near Seattle on the hottest day ever recorded here. 104F, 340C. Not all that hot in Amritsar or Las Vegas, but deadly hot to these weak Seattlites. I'm OK, with a fan and a spray bottle of water.

So, for a summer break...

I just came across this Youtube video and want to share it with you.

First, a still from the video:

The Beard of Swaran Singh
Then the caption from the video:
Mar. 11 - A Canadian man who has grown a beard that measures over seven feet long is all set to be endorsed in the record books.

Swaran Singh, a music teacher from Canada who is visiting his native Punjab, is the pride of all the Sikhs for sporting a beard that measures over 7 feet long.

He expects it to be endorsed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

As a devout Sikh, Singh wanted to inspire the young members of his community to retain the hair and not crop it.

(SOUNDBITE) (Punjabi) SWARAN SINGH: "God blessed every man with beard, but I have received special blessing from Him. I have done nothing special except caring it (beard). I have never applied any special hair oil on my beard and of course, I haven't done this for the sake of Guinness record."

And, at last, the video itself:

Happy summer to all (in the Northern Hemisphere). Happy winter to you in the hemisphere of Oz.

The Real Face of American Politics Reveals Itself Once Again

Once again, we can readily see through the evolution of the so-called Health Care Reform Legislation the forces that actually drive American Politics. The Lobbyists who dutifully represent the Health Care Insurance Industry and the wealthy are, once again, reaping the rewards for the largesse that they readily bestow upon legislators who vote on their behalf.

It is quite amazing how rapidly increased taxation on the very wealthy as a partial solution to financing health care reform was dropped from the agenda. It seems that this class that holds a vastly disproportionate share of the nation’s wealth does not have any obligation to actually contribute financially to a solution that would be an immeasurable benefit to all Americans. When it comes to reducing the tax burden of those who can easily afford higher taxes, however, the Congress has demonstrated on many occasions just how prepared they are to do so.

It is equally astonishing how quickly the inclusion of a public option as an integral part of the proposed health care reform legislation was also eliminated from consideration.

It does not require a remarkable stretch of the imagination to understand how these policy reversals occur. This represents the same old story. Our society and culture has devolved into one in which the primary concern for all human endeavor can be distilled into one powerful concept- profit. We seem to be more than willing to allow millions of men, women and children to continue to suffer needlessly on account of the fact the health insurance industry is not in the slightest way interested in the public health or the public good. It is a thriving industry built upon a failed and destitute public health system.

This is an outrageous situation and is, essentially, morally reprehensible. In my mind the Congress is primarily responsible. The American people also share the responsibility for being so easily swayed by fallacious arguments and not standing up for what they absolutely require.

America's Health Care Ranking

The American people pay twice as much per person for medical care than the rest of the world combined. America ranks 37th out of 191 countries in health care.

The World Health Organization has carried out the first ever analysis of the world's health systems. Using five performance indicators to measure health systems in 191 member states, it finds that France provides the best overall health care followed among major countries by Italy, Spain, Oman, Austria and Japan.

The U.S. health system spends a higher portion of its gross domestic product than any other country but ranks 37 out of 191 countries according to its performance, the report finds. The United Kingdom, which spends just six percent of GDP on health services, ranks 18 th . Several small countries – San Marino, Andorra, Malta and Singapore are rated close behind second- placed Italy.

The impact of failures in health systems is most severe on the poor everywhere, who are driven deeper into poverty by lack of financial protection against ill- health, the report says.

"The poor are treated with less respect, given less choice of service providers and offered lower- quality amenities," says Dr Brundtland. "In trying to buy health from their own pockets, they pay and become poorer."

While private health expenses in industrial countries now average only some 25 percent because of universal health coverage (except in the United States, where it is 56%), in India, families typically pay 80 percent of their health care costs as "out-of- pocket" expenses when they receive health care.

Colombia achieved top rank because someone with a low income might pay the equivalent of one dollar per year for health care, while a high- income individual pays 7.6 dollars.

In North America, Canada rates as the country with the fairest mechanism for health system finance – ranked at 17-19, while the United States is at 54-55. Cuba is the highest among Latin American and Caribbean nations at 23-25.

Health care, like education, is an investment in our future and should be a "not for profit" venture. Unfortunately in America, the health care industry is controlled by the pharmaceutical, insurance and medical products industries who enjoy a virtual monopoly on all pricing for the benefit of "maximum profit". It's no wonder they have launched a massive "disinformation campaign" and are lobbying (read "bribery") so hard to kill health care reform.

Survival of the Gold Promise

Since the creation of the Gold Promise,
there have been many waves.
Waves that have attempted to wash away,
erase the promise that we've written in the sand.
But the Gold Promise isn't made of sand.
It's as indestructible as we are.
it will be followed till death.
[or rather it will follow till death]
Hopefully it'll succeed either to leave a legacy,
or fail to fade away,
and become a legacy itself.
Humanity knows how vulnerable they are.
How big the mountains,
how deep the oceans,
how far the sun
and how close the opportunity of death.
But don't give up,
I alone, can't do this thing.
Even though we're so small,
the universe so big,
we were made for it.
[or rather it was made for us]
Fate can look grim,
but it can't be that bad
for its only the product of imagination.
Fate doesn't exist
...all that exists is what exists now.
So don't give up,
we still got a ways to go...
And that ways to go,
it can only be accomplished in the now.
Don't give up,
For the Sake of Humanity
and for the achievement of the Gold Promise.
Remember the present
and these rewards of life,
and this universe,
and these dreams...

The Nephilim

Genesis Chapter 6, verses 1 through 4 mentions Nephilim:

Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

They are mentioned again in Numbers chapter 13, verses 32-33, in a description of the inhabitants of Hebron:

So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, "The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. There also we saw the Nephilim and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight."

The Battle of Los Angeles

The Battle of Los Angeles is the name given by contemporary news agencies to a sighting of one or more unidentified flying objects which took place from late February 24 to early February 25, 1942 in which eyewitness reports of an unknown object or objects over Los Angeles, California, triggered a massive anti-aircraft artillery barrage. The Los Angeles incident occurred less than three months after America's entry into World War II as a result of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Initially the target of the aerial barrage was thought to be an attacking force from Japan, but it was later suggested to be imaginary and a case of "war nerves", a lost weather balloon, a blimp, a Japanese fire balloon or psychological warfare technique, staged for the benefit of coastal industrial sites, or even an extraterrestrial craft. The true nature of the object or objects allegedly remains "unknown".

The incident was front-page news along the U.S. Pacific coast, and earned some mass media coverage throughout the nation. One Los Angeles Herald Express writer who observed some of the incident insisted that several anti-aircraft shells had struck one of the objects, and he was stunned that the object had not been downed. Reporter Bill Henry of the Los Angeles Times wrote , "I was far enough away to see an object without being able to identify it...I would be willing to bet what shekels I have that there were a number of direct hits scored on the object."

The Sum of World History



No McDonalds without the force of McDonnell Douglas (F-15 fighters).

You kill the Red Indians and that is civilization, while the other is holocaust.

One Million Iraqis killed were flies and cockroaches, while 3,000 killed in 9/11 were martyrs.

You use WMDs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki but all who oppose you cannot have WMDs. Its OK if Israel has WMDs to kill the sub human Arabs but North Korea is a terrorist and Hillary Clinton who should have been sitting on Walmart's board of directors now talks about diplomacy! Funny lady!

Everything that is noble, good and altruistic is the west and everything that is bad are all those who oppose the west.

Illegal migrants legalized with force. You call it civilization :---

In 1994 Iraq complied with all of the U.N. demands including dismantling of WMD but the USA kept the sanctions leading to deaths of thousands so that oil prices stay high and benefit lackeys like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. You call this diplomacy?!

BCCI Bank, later accused of money laundering and drugs, was a major donor to the Tory Party of Britain.

Khodorovsky, the biggest swindler and crook of Russia, generously donates to neo-conservative think tanks in the USA and active members of Khodorovskys foundations are Henry Kissinger and Lord Rothschild.

Height of western civilization :---

Killing and maiming with a B-52 is civilized, while killing with an AK-47 is a terrorist attack.

As they say, "war is the terrorism of the rich and terrorism is the war of the poor."

You call this the civilized west. It stinks.

Captains of Industry

The human spirit will thrive with co-operation; Far more than with competition. So why is our society based upon competition and not co-operation?

The current economic system is based upon the masses competing with each-other for limited resources for one reason; to keep them enslaved to the system. In addition to bondage our rulers choose to keep us, in the majority, impoverished slaves. The reality is the masses have had to work harder and have had less than the few at the top since the days of the pyramids.

Economics is simply the latest word for a pyramid shaped slavery control system. Pyramid schemes and structures favor the few and control, enslave and rip off the masses. They have been using the same structure for thousands of years.

Why do you think there is a pyramid on our money with the top cut off. Money is the control system and it states their formula right in plain view for all to see.

It shows the elite at the top, and the masses at the bottom. The slave masters and the slaves.

Everything is free

Let me get this straight.......

we do all the work.......

we buy all the products.......

and they get the lions share of the profit?

That's why we need labor unions.

Make the people rich......

that will save the economy.......really.

Golden Themed Heart Sleeve

For Elan.

An unexpected kindness,
This unseen intuition.
Ever present smile says
Don’t be so serious

Accepting and relaxed
Forgiveness –themed philosophy
Speaks volumes of compassion
Rejecting slants of lethargy.

Chosen insightful naïveté
Bears friendly fruits
Contagious happiness
Healing scarred wounds

No need to explain himself
To those who do not ask
A wasted life is one
Who’s impact does not last.

poetic health plea

Do you feel that you are spending time you don't have to be healthy?
I am confronted with limits in ways designed to feel indebted.
What supports my existence is the need to question better, especially myself.

Dominance over impulsive thoughts projects a point of interest to share, like conversation needs participation appreciation.
Even the brain has two hemispheres to balance since it is prime example of a distribution process between concepts and real effects.
Concern can become distracted with discouragement of a judicial system, which tends to bisect into good or bad.
The process of creating immediacy is evaluation as supportive dialog which can process the vow of "for better or for worse" over a long time in the name of eternity.

Could our relationship to our country feel more supportive than marriage?
The sacrifice paradox is understood by paying respect to equality concepts.
Service Trust is the care-giving value to give credit for attention.

I'd like to believe that choice in public investment is the best way to option away private manipulative buy out that must stop expecting bail-out. The equality of attention must now be a social security assurance which can take the figures "in the red" and create the debt-less greenbacks for a new foundation of healthy attitude.

Sgt. Karl Wolf

Truth is a Pathless Land

"I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organize a belief. A belief is purely an individual matter, and you cannot and must not organize it. If you do, it becomes dead, crystallized; it becomes a creed, a sect, a religion, to be imposed on others " Jiddu Krishnamurti

The Unfinished Species

We are a disastrously unfinished species. We are hardwired with tendencies that do not serve us well in the twenty-first century. The human species can be extremely aggressive, xenophobic, petty, acquisitive, obsessive and often delusional. These are attributes that may have served early humans well in the primeval competition for survival. But that is in the past. We have supposedly tamed nature to the point at which our unabated intervention in the flow of natural processes is now endangering our own collective survival. We have proclaimed ourselves to be free, yet vast numbers of individuals are tied to the yolk of a failed vision in regards to human commerce and political infrastructure. We believe ourselves to be released from the restraints imposed by superstition, yet the motivation for living remains tethered to a profound subservience to a superhuman superhero in the guise of what is referred to as God. We pride ourselves in the advancements made in science, our understanding of the workings of the natural world, yet we are clueless about our own inner workings.

Without a deep understanding of our own essential natures, we will never be freed from the disastrous future that will necessarily come from our own collective and profound ignorance. There is an immense beauty and simplicity that underlies our conscious life and that is accessible through the inner workings of the intellect. Living without an appreciation for the life of the mind, is an incomplete life at best. This reality lies, in my mind, at the very heart of education. In essence, understanding how to think and how to utilize the vast resources of the intellect, how to discipline and corral the barrage of emotions, impulses and affectations that undermine our well being both individually and as a group can provide release from the savage wheel of human history upon which we seemed to be impaled.



is another word for waste!

Think re-usable!

A Sea of Plastic

Just for worldwide consumption of bottled water in 2004 alone it took roughly 87.4 million barrels of oil. You can imagine that with statistics for 2008, we have a figure in the hundreds of millions of barrels of oil being used just to produce bottled water. Don't buy water in plastic bottles, water is free!

America and the world’s addiction to plastic doesn’t end there. Plastic bags take oil, just like plastic bottles to produce. Currently the U.S. consumes 100 billion plastic shopping bags in a year and worldwide consumption is estimated to be from 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags a year. That is roughly 1 million plastic bags a minute being consumed and less than 1% is recycled. If we legalize hemp we could make bags from a profitable and sustainable source and avoid wasting all that oil and energy making "trash that lasts forever."

I guess it's okay to pollute our waters now because, "we can $ell them clean water in a pla$tic bottle." Clean water is a right, not a commodity to be exploited. I bet next they will try to $ell us air and fire and dirt.

California Marijuana Tax

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano will announce legislation on Monday to legalize marijuana and earn perhaps $1 billion annually by taxing it.

Quintin Mecke, Ammiano's press secretary, confirmed to SF Weekly that the assemblyman's 10 a.m. Monday press conference regarding "new legislation related to the state's fiscal crisis" will broach the subject of reaping untold -- and much-needed -- wealth from the state's No. 1 cash crop.

Mecke said Ammiano's proposed bill "would remove all penalties in California law on cultivation, transportation, sale, purchase, possession, or use of marijuana, natural THC, or paraphernalia for persons over the age of 21."

The bill would additionally prohibit state and local law officials from enforcing federal marijuana laws. As for Step Two -- profit -- Ammiano's bill calls for "establishing a fee on the sale of marijuana at a rate of $50 per ounce." Mecke said that would bring in roughly $1 billion for the state, according to estimates made by marijuana advocacy organizations.

Some Life

From July 6th to July 10th I was at something my church calls Kids Kamp.
Last year I didn't know what to expect, but it was a great escape from a troubled mind.
This year though it was no escape, what it was, was a wonderful experience.
So today I say "for the sake of the kids",
and "for the sake of my love and the love of others":
We can't give up.
Things can change.
People do grow up,
and others can.

Life is about the maintenance of life.
There's gotta be a balance.
And you gotta know what your doing.
Good luck, cause we all need some of mine sometimes.

I wish I could say more, by I truly can't.
This experience, can it be put into words?

SiCKO is a 2007 documentary film by American film maker Michael Moore. The film investigates the American health care system, focusing on its health insurance and pharmaceutical industry. The film compares the for-profit, non-universal U.S. system with the non-profit universal health care systems of Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Cuba.

Sicko opened to positive reviews, but also generated criticism and controversy. Some policy specialists have praised the film while others have criticized the film for its positive portrayal of the publicly funded health systems of Canada, the United Kingdom and Cuba, and for its negative portrayal of the health care system in the United States.

In his first television interview since leaving the health insurance industry, Wendell Potter tells
Bill Moyers why he left his successful career as the head of Public Relations for CIGNA, one of the nation's largest insurers, and decided to speak out against the industry. "I didn't intend to [speak out], until it became really clear to me that the industry is resorting to the same tactics they've used over the years.

My Precious

Life is short

Life is hard

Life is precious

excluded duties

I am disabled by all
the time it takes to maintain
the healthy balance of sanity.
To exercise as many physical therapy
prescriptions that it take to progress.
I prescribe less mandatory work mandatory.
It is the industrious imbalance that created
commercialism of domination qualities.

Maintenance depart-mental-izes.
Discouragement is from the critical side
so supportive reflex is natural balance

The use of desire can be healthy respect for
education appreciation as better attitudes evolve
healthy indulgence can (and should ) mean
(individual or shared) experiencing encouragement.

Personal value is an entitlement of individual rights
but the difficulty of defining equality
is institutionalized with certifications.

Time spent being healthy could become credit
that doesn't enforce indebted tensions.

In the 1950's the average sperm count was 120 million per milliliter. The average sperm count today has been halved to an average of around 60 million per milliliter in the Western world, a decrease of 1-2% per year.

My guess is that all the poisons, chemicals and female hormone mimicking compounds we've introduced into our environment and food have begun to concentrate in our bodies and are slowly trying to turn boys into girls. Male infertility will be the method of our self-annihilation. We are killing ourselves and the planet with our waste.

The Zippo

"Disposable" lighters are only one of the many items being made of plastic. "Trash that lasts forever" is the only phrase that can describe "disposable" plastic items. This "disposable" plastic finds its way into the ocean and collects in rotating ocean currents like the North Pacific Gyre, an area of concentrated plastic trash the size of Texas. The plastic to food ratio in this area is 6:1.

As you can see, this bird ingested several plastic "disposable" lighters along with other various plastic bottle tops and miscellaneous "disposable" plastic items. This bird died because it mistook our "disposable" plastic trash for food. Only 3.5 % of worldwide "disposable" plastic is recycled.

Zippo lighters are reliable and re-usable, a quality American made item not made of plastic. Buy a Zippo and stop using plastic "disposable" lighters and avoid buying "disposable" plastic products and packaging. It may even stop a bullet and save your life. "Disposable" plastic is the bane of our age.

The Dark Side of The Agro-Industrial Complex

suffering govt.

This national deficit may be perfectly timed to prove government is reflexively opposing the social best interest.
I will try to suggest that the deficit created for taxpayers is actually owed to us.
The governmental responsibility is relative to economic balance.
Aggressive tendencies are too expensive and are being overly represented in military spending and corporate favors.
The energy that flows through our currency has become so powerful it has burned out our infrastructure and delivery systems.
The industrious motives of the corporate Federal Reserve conglomeration needs the healthy balance of National Service Departments to keep our values diverse enough to remain democratic.
The socialistic request for bail-out proves the mutation of getting too big to maintain itself is an obsolete domination behavior.
Branches of economy could be created to represent victims of industrious disregard for better intentions to represent integrity.
The whole purpose of government is as an example of self-supportive resource management.
The authority to create credit from the debt has been attempted by presidents before when private money dissolved trust by buying into toxic power exploitation.
"Power to the people" (democracy) can only come from a national credit for participation in supportive behavior.
Most of the jobs today seem to be for discouragement and thus need downsizing.
Healthy behavior allows for proportional emergency compensation as an indicator of care full education.
Government only half cares for this social imbalance of prerequisites and conventions.
I would like to offer observations of concern.
People of indulgent needs that create (production) needs for others to pay for are committing crimes of entertainment like watching their victims suffer for improvement.

The Government could declare Federal Reserve currency creates illegally unequal cultural values unless balanced with a U.S.Note for the Health support that could create a service branch of economy inclusively networking medical and educational departments.
The multi-branching of government is in public interest that yields more appreciation (when needed) if viewed as self-supported.

Can you imagine the accomplishment with this idealism as a goal?
What the world would be with everyone's such hopes and dreams?

Flying Dinosaurs

Infinite time

Infinite space

What is not possible?

Cynical Conclusion

Slightest touch of breeze upon my face

Faintest wafting scent upon the air

Almost imagined whispered song

Hinted caress’ pressure on my skin

It’s where you must have been

Familiar aching, straining heart

Sinking defeated soul’s despair

Recurring hopeless lethargy

Blinding broken willful fight

You’re more than out of sight

No resilience resonating now

Drained desire to connect

Fatalistic -inspired apathy

Another brick in wall of self defense

To love again does not make sense

Regarding the Human Brain

Regarding the human brain- It intrigues me that in the current era with all the knowledge that has been made available through the remarkable work of neurobiologists, a controversy still remains regarding the source of our humanity. There are those who maintain that the human mind is separate from the organic brain and that the self resides in that ethereal and indefinable quantity referred to as the soul. Descartes, the father of modern calculus, believed that the soul resided in the area of the brain now known as the pineal gland. This gland is now known to be the site of the neuronal activity that is responsible for regulating the biological clock. He can be forgiven for this error on account of the total lack of understanding of how the human brain functions during his lifetime.

The preponderance of scientific evidence regarding brain function strongly suggests that the totality of the self, including thoughts, perceptions, beliefs, emotions, ideas and imagination is a natural and necessary outgrowth of the functioning of the organic brain. The idea, often stated, that thoughts, ideas and imagination being insubstantial cannot emanate from physiological processes, is nonsensical, especially since there is no other rational explanation.

I am convinced that this line of thinking is a rather intricate rationalization for the belief that humans are products of a special creation and are, therefore, not bounded by biology and its inherent limitations. To accept the reality that our organic brains, destined to dissolution, are the seats of our humanness, is to accede to the obvious truth of our own fragile mortality.

There is a style of recognition
