Starchild…

Can grandads still have the funk?

Hell yes..

Way back in the early eighties, there was a big jazz-funk / soul scene in Kent. My friend and I used to get free entrance to several nightclubs because of our dancing…

The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42.

In the radio series and the first novel, a group of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings demand to learn the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7+1⁄2 million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42. Deep Thought points out that the answer seems meaningless because the beings who instructed it never knew what the question was.

 

[Verse 1]
When I was an infant in my mothers arms
I would watch the starlight in her face
Cause I was reaching out to understand the cosmic charm
I am just a starchild born in space

[Chorus]
Way up high above the sky all that beauty passes by
Whole worlds still unknown
And out beyond the blue there’s a place for people too
It’s time for us to go

[Refrain]
I have seen the sun shine bright in paradise
I have been there, I have seen it
Everywhere space people stare through ageless eyes
I have seen them, I believe it

[Chorus]
Way up high above the sky all that beauty passes by
Whole worlds still unknown
And out beyond the blue there’s a place for people too
It’s time for us to go

[Bridge}
We have time (In my dreams)
Time and space
While we’re young (Floating free)
We can chase
The stars

Verse 2]
Searching for the magic in the universe
Guided by the stars that light my way
I have seen the sun shine bright in paradise
I am just a starchild born in space

[Verse 3]
If you want to go with me I’ll take you there
I’ve been shown these secrets face to face
I have seen the sun shine bright in paradise
I am just a starchild born in space

Are You in Need of a Full-Blown Exorcism?

If you have a mind to, you might look at the previous post on the Nature of Magic and you could ask if you are Slytherin or Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff or Gryffindor. I suspect that at one level many have a hankering after one of these houses, if only for fun.

The basic question is are you a USER of people and do you discard them when they are no longer of any USE in advancing your will, your ambition, your desire?

If you are honest enough to answer this truthfully it will advise you as to which path you are on. The path of self-obsessed personal and materialistic advancement or the path of return, the path of soular inner tuition.

Are you a brother of darkness, motive and ambition or are you a brother of light, of freedom and a star-child of Aquarius, a magical being of the universe?

On occasion I have been known to take the piss, just a little, and what the wife and I have noted is that when we mention the E word, exorcism, people do not know how to react, what to do. Maybe it is down to the movies, but for some reason that word gives people the heebie-jeebies, rational scientists included in the sampled data set.

So, if you are on the darkened path and under the power of the dark adepts, the dark brothers, what are you going to do? If you use others, they might be using you. So, what are you going to do? Fall deeper under their influence? Or seek out a white magician who could perform a full blown exorcism so that you could have temporary respite, perhaps sufficient for you to close the furrow, the path, by which you let them into your mind?

Shut the front door, so to speak. Because after all it was you who invited them in over the threshold.

Who are you going to call?

Stopping The World

In the middle of 2006 I resigned my job as an academic at a world “top ten” university. I gave six months notice so that I could hand over my responsibilities in a well controlled and managed way. At the end of November my flat sale went through and I moved from Brixton to this rented accomodation in the country. I went from scheduled to the nearest five minutes to virtually nothing, nada, zip. I was unemployed and had only a few small pieces of consultancy work lined up.

You can see my mat where I sat come rain or shine to finish off my life recapitualtion.

I sat and I sat.

I had stopped the world,the hectic and crazy one which I once was a part of.

The Worrier’s Path

The talker’s rule…


1) A Worrier does not believe in battles, therefore he approaches life with all the accuracy and care of someone who has drunk ten pints of “wife beater” and taken half a gram of amphetamine sulphate. A Worrier knows that knee jerk reactions are best and that repetition of folly is his favourite pastime.

2) By striving for complexity a Worrier fills his diary and day to day life with things of the utmost boredom and futility so as to avoid taking any action. A Worrier is able to construct a twenty seven dimension third order hyperpolarisability tensor for any situation so as to justify the fact that he is overwhelmed by complexity. By projecting catastrophe after catastrophe onto the world, the Worrier justifies his fear and inertia.

3) A Worrier knows that it is better to run than to stand, being sure that he can always put things off until Monday next week, when he can, if there is time, review how to put them off until the following month. A Worrier is sure that there is no such thing as the eternal now and his favourite mantra are “if only” and “what if?”

4) A Worrier never enters into battle because he knows that the control of his self image, view of the world and personal history are what keeps him sane. As such a Worrier is always obsessed with controlling his life so that he can, after all, have life on his own terms.

5) Whenever faced with even the slightest of difficulty the Worrier capitulates to the sound judgment of his infallible reason. He becomes obsessed with displacement activities and bends the true meaning of life to fit with all his preconceptions and prejudice.

6) A Worrier stretches time so that his life is filled with the exquisite beauty of hours spent in the dental waiting room looking forward with anticipation to that root canal work in the absence of anaesthetic. By making life as boring as possible he will extend his apparent longevity by decades. Hence his life will seem like an eternity.

7) A Worrier is convinced that he is only his self image and ensures that his personal history is sufficiently intact that he can be bound to it. A Worrier never reveals to himself the fact that he is a magical being of the universe.
