UPDATE: Due to this BS thing where I can do everything with this blog except publish a post, I have moved home to Wordpress: http://ncnblogger.wordpress.com/ (this will remain as an archive and be damn sure I will still read all your wonderful blogs as ever). Those who have linked me please update the link. Thanks all. Looking forward to continued blogging in the future.

Today's news is that Osama is dead. Well it's sort of 10 year old news, but there you go. Supposedly one of the very mind controlled special forces shot him in the head, although given the notorious nature of the invading forces' willingness to kill someone then play dress up afterwards, who knows it may have been a woman who they drew a beard on with marker pen. Photo looks 'shopped but what do I know. Then again corpses just like your TV dinner keep very well in the freezer...lol...


Anyway I'm off to get kidney dialysis using only sand and donkey piss while being hunted by all the satellites and spy planes that a trillion dollar military budget can buy, for ten years. Ciao

PS does this mean the war on terror is over now and 'we' can come home and dismantle the police state and not have RFID passports and iris scans and creepy wiretaps anymore? (Comptroller says no)

Videogames, Metaphysics and Life

You know, it may sound silly, but I have had some of my most significant realisations while parked in front of a console. I am not a fan of cheesy analogies, but here I must make exception.

See, life is indeed a lot like a videogame. We temporarily suspend our previous state of existence to enter a world, where we assume an avatar in order to experience that virtual world, to participate in it and perhaps to learn from it.

In theory, anything could happen in that world, although in practice limitations have been put in place by the designer of the videogame; laws, rules, things like 'game physics', all of which are arbitrary conditions dependent on the will of the designer. Really, although these are in one sense limiting, they are also essential - for without limits there can be no challenges and thus no acheivement.

But things can go wrong when playing videogames. I can attest to the fact that it is possible to literally go into a trance-like state and actually not hear things going on around you; this kind of thing has occasionally happened to me while playing that reptillian-brain-fest also known as Call of Duty online mode. Literally, people talk to you and it takes you a while to snap out enough to listen to them so that you can never tell what they-damn don't they understand that stoned American kid is shooting at me? Shut up!

And this recollection brings me, inevitably, to Bill Hicks. See, as he almost said, we can play a videogame, and it's got bright lights and it goes round and round, and some of us who've been playing for a long time, we start to think the game is real, and then some people who've remembered come back and tell us, "hey, it's just a game." And we - kill those people. (Or just yell at them!)

But I am done with videogames. I figured shooting in effigy thousands of people wasn't doing much for my soul or my psyche.

Alas, perhaps we have become transfixed on the game of life, and in starting to think it is 'real', that our material possessions are real and so on, we have lost sight of any sense of purpose here. Oh, it's a bloody important game - we do not know for sure that you can respawn once it is over - but a game it is nonetheless.

And that's where we are asking only half of the question. Everyone, rightly, wants to know what happens when we die. Nobody wants to stop existing...which implies that we intuitively know there is a purpose to our existence, despite constantly pleading to know 'why we are here'. But is it not an equally legitimate question, perhaps central to understanding the answer to the other one, that we ask what we were before birth?

Western religion does not discuss this at all, but I reckon if we believe we may exist beyond death, I say it's equally legitimate - perhaps essential - to consider that we may have existed before birth. If so, did we choose to come here? Would you, really? And if so, what are you here to accomplish? I rather naively hope we get some answers about all this when the game is over. For now though, enjoy the bright lights!

Undebunkable Chemtrails Video That The "Debunkers" Ignore...

...and yes, Chemtrails interfere with weather

(but why they are used, no-one fully knows...)

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?

It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?

Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!

No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)

I'm Already Against The Next War
Stop the propaganda before it's here. If some kind of terror attack happens in the West, Iran probably didn't do it. They have no history of imperialism and would be suicidal to attack the West. Think who benefits. No bombing of Iran.
