… and as far apart in time as possibly forty thousand years (ish) from this version herewith below:

CONSTANTLY

I’M BEING

images.jpgreminded that many minds in the past were far better than mine.

Sadly they were limited by period, place, fashion, laws and by the pignorance of lesser minds holding power. (Hee hoo has the biggest gun dictates ‘Truth’ …)

IT TAKES ENDLESS EFFORT

for questing minds to break free from the chains of the killer: ‘herd approval’.

But we climb from swamps to foothills where we come across crumbled skeletons stretched on the ground, still pointing upwards:

“Go on from here …”

 

So we try.

Some of us.

WHAT ANNOYS ME

is that so many in the far distant past reached my conclusions thousands of years ago. Ouch.

Without benefit of our sciences they explained phenomena as best they could, their Gods thundered through the skies in chariots (or pillars of fire) (same difference) …

TOO OFTEN

thoughts were purloined to further the Controllers’ aims of wealth and power at any cost. Hence religions …

I HAVE MY THOUGHTS ON ‘TIME’

as did the ancients thousands of years ago. (Self-evident: it would be more surprising if they hadn’t.)

I BELIEVE

That ‘time’ doesn’t exist.

Time—as we use it—is a fallacy, a convenient illusion that suits our purposes. I shan’t try to explain, but consider this challenge—

  • you claim to be a thinker … look at yesterday and what you did—could you have done anything differently?

 

  • Or did you do only those things that were in your ‘future’ since before you were born?

 

  • Tell me, how long had they been in your future?*

 

AND STILL NO TAKERS?

Perhaps I should write a bible instead and gather a following (I can always do with a few more bucks) …

* CLUE: easy peasy— 

—how old is the universe?

DUCK~!

OR

TAKE TIME

to think again.dragon

HERE, HAVE A NICE DUCK ANYWAY

and her brood. This dozen is all that’s left of once-were-hundreds (previous years) in Queens Park, Invercargill, New Zealand. The park now is but a shadow of its former self. But without all those silly trees in the way, you can now see all the way from screeching traffic one side to screeching traffic on the other—much better, the sounds of progress, than all that blasted chirping we used to get.

Now here’s yer duck—

—and whatever else changes, ducklings at least stay reliably out of focus. Mobilis in mobile, a constant in a world of change. Damn … less than a dozen, we used to have hundreds (frankly I blame Al Gore).

ON A WET THEME

and linking with the temporal theme, here we have

Screen Shot 2018-09-23 at 10.28.26.png

a water wheel making water or whatever it is they do. There’s too much nature over that side too, so I guess the Park Management is overdue sending in the heavies with their flamethrowers and things to ‘tidy it up’ (think instant desert).

My attempt at artistic interpretation of The Great Scheme of Things (SFX: cue Zarathustra as used in that 2001 Space movie, please). Here’s another view so you can appreciate what we’re looking at/through—

—for some unknown reason it has me reaching for my six-pens and pad; this is sexism to the extreme and totally unacceptable to any narrow-minded inferiority-complexed clueless humourless bigot.

I just wish I’d thought of it first …

ETERNITY

INVERCARGILL

a few years ago someone went around scribbling the same one word everywhere—

Screen Shot 2018-09-22 at 17.49.36.png

why do people do such things? Couldn’t they just invest in a computer, get a blog, and post every da—       oops …

MOVING ON

Screen Shot 2018-09-22 at 17.50.32.png

Here’s one I snapped recently. Don’t let the foreshortened perspective fool you, those snowy hills are about twenty miles away and the others could be any distance. On a clear day, goes the ol’ song, you can see for everrrrrr …

For ever.

Eternity.

Have you never noticed how everything is related to ‘time’? The ancients certainly did. Some made good observations then goofed by explaining them—the science of the day being not up to the challenge they invoked gods. Gods are nice to have, very handy—even better if you can boil down the cast of thousands to just the one SuperGod.

The ancients would have been aghast if there were no good to match the evil all around them. Eventually we ended up with a wee section of the ‘Good Book’ devoted to matters temporal.

I LOVE ECCLESIASTES 

and despite the good words being twisted by knaves to make traps for fools, it rings my bell. In places the words of wise men of ages past still echo. The scribe thereof has, I think, peeped through the same portals as I—

“Mr Argus … Sir?”

“Yes, Little Virginia?”

“Through a glass darkly, Sir?”

“Could even be, Child—”

Ecclesiastes is time-based. The minds of the past studied time … and, I think, they concluded more or less the same as I:

That ‘Time’ is merely a mental artifice to help us make sense of the universe, and not only does it not exist but it’s rigidly fixed and nothing can change:

Perfect emptiness;

Yet therein something moves,

Following its own course …

 

Time is an illusion. Luckily for us, the illusion is perfect. AND—

I’m still waiting for some Bible banging buffoon to rationalise the apparent contradiction between our Free Will and God’s omniscience. A long wait …

down there

Do I look worried?

 

HERE ‘TIS,

THE TOP PHOTO OF THE LAST

two millenniums. Millennia. Thingies …

The Catholic Church (we are told) has developed (in secret, utilising the (donated?) services of some of the greatest scientific brains) a

CHRONOVISOR

which as nobody knows is a TV set capable of blending modern electronics* and the Power Of Christ to (in real time) throw up an image from any four-dimensional coordinates. (NOTE: any.)

I IMAGINE 

that ‘they’ are keeping it well under wraps even after half a century because of the immense power it would afford anyone who had one and knew how to use it.

They have, we are reliably (?) informed, used it to observe at first hand the Crucifiction of Christ. (I guess ol’ God allowed them to because such unarguable proof can only help His purposes, no?).

SO HERE

for all you ignoramus heathens out there is a genuine photo of the face of Christ-on-the-cross as presented by the fruits of the greatest minds ever—

Screen Shot 2018-09-22 at 07.45.45.png

—set alongside a (guesswork? Inspired?) painting of such. Pretty dam’ good, no?

IF YOU DOUBT

go Google the word ‘Chronovisor’ for yourself.

You’ll be very impressed, with it you can eavesdrop on (say) Yamamoto and his merry men planning the attack on Pearl Harbour, or watch Robin Hood loose his final (“Bury me where it lands, Chaps …) shaft, or if more adventurous you might even watch the Big Bang itself in real time (or God creating everything, better minds than mine are still debating that point).

WHAT I’M WAITING FOR

is for these things to come onto the market.

They’ll probably be beyond my pay-grade but what if the heads of all the disputing factions got one? No more wars—

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 20.45.44

—unless of course, you got in firstest with the mostest. Brrrrrr …

AND FOR ANYONE

who actually believes in any of this, I still have that bridge for sale in Australia. Cheap. Especially, Sir or Madam, for you

BOOM BOOM!

* Okaaaaayyyy … once was modern. I wonder if they’ve updated it to the solid-state micro-chip version yet? (Vacuum tubes, valves, and CRTs … so very old hat these days.)

 

DAMMIT~!

I can’t spare the time to comment on these  …  twats! Screen Shot 2018-09-16 at 08.26.37

(Perhaps someone with a rational bent and a few spare minutes?)

“…under the perfect conditions, the device offers its user the ability to foresee what was going to happen in the near future.

However, Father Ernetti remained secretive and stated he was not at liberty to reveal further details about the Chronovisor.

Father Ernetti did however reveal that the Chronovisor worked by ‘…processing residual electromagnetic radiation left over by numerous processes…’

According to numerous reports, Father Ernetti used the Chronovisor to witness important historical events, with the most notable being the crucifixion of Christ…”

It seems you can sell God to anyone if you invoke big scientific names (deceased) and mix ‘scientific’ mumbled mumbo jumbo in with your superstitious mumbled mumbo jumbo.

(For those not in the know:  there’s a school of ‘thought’ that holds the Catlick Church to have secretly developed a television set that will see backwards and forwards in time, to (apparently) anywhere in Time and Space.*

And you can use it to take photographs too—which must be handy for convincing doubting Thomases when you show them genuine video footage of the ark on the waters, or the Angels copulating with Mariamne to produce the Son of God—or for prurient historians, Adolf cuddling up with cute little Eva in the bunker.)

YET

people believe this stuff?

And still they  won’t buy my bridge—is it my toothpaste, perhaps?

I CANNOT CLAIM

TO KNOW IT ALL

dragonI leave that office to other arrogant pignorant prats. The one claim I do make is that the only ‘thing’ that moves in this entire universe is consciousness. (Yours, Bud …)

ECCLESIASTES

unheeded in the Christian ‘Good Book’ hits  a bit—but in as much as “one snowflake doth not a winter make” let’s not take a factor out of context and try to use it to prove mountains of error. Brrrr.

CLUE:

 

Stop thinking three dimensions

 

This is a multi-dimensioned universe—

“Mr Argus, Sir?”

(Bugger~) “Yes, Little Virginia?”

“You know, Sir, that folks will be accusing you of multi-heresies; religious, moral, scientific, pragmatic—”

“Par for the course, kid. Now pay attention—you get to pull the feathers out only after I finish babbling!”

devil-2

Q/  IS THE CONCEPT

of a fixed and entirely static universe so very difficult to grasp? That there ain’t no Free Will, not even for God/gods/goddesses/godlings … and if there were they’d be just as stuck with the status quo as we are?

OKAAAAAYYYY

Now try looking back at yesterday—

simultaneously from both ends (go on, you can do it!)

—and tell me what you conclude, after pondering this massive question:

 

Is there anything you COULD have done differently?

 

And if you answered ‘Yes’ then you entirely miss my point … rescrub, try again.

And again, and again, until either the penny drops or your head hurts.

No rush, I’ll wait …
