For some reason, I was thinking about this domain when looking to register for a website, so I thought about my blog (as I haven’t in some time now). My tinkerings. I’d found recent adventures into electronics and the Arduino [ <3 ] but I was looking for more of my worldly thoughts, my ideas on reality, or my ‘off the beaten track’ musings… they’re a bit old now so maybe I will endeavour to share my holistically inspired world thoughts more often. My attention was then brought back to the revolvermaps stats and as I spun the world at large (in the virtual 3D sense!) little yellow dots would show up – and largely to my surprise, in varied places around the globe! This therefore, is a greeting to all of you around the world who’ve read one more more words from this blog. Hello and welcome! This year, 2012, is a year that has been discussed at length before it even started. Still now, thoughout it’s period of “time”, it is discussed and pondered as it is happening! What is it with 2012? Well, for anyone living around London, 2012 is the year of the Olympics – not long from now in fact. To others, 2012 is represented as an apolocalyptic end of world scenario whilst some see it as a point of human ascension to something more. Well, there are a lot of theories out there, and a lot of doomsday sayers who see it as a way to make money. It’s easy to get lost in the theories and ideas since many of them are contradictory but the one thing that remains constant is we’re living through it right now. We are only half way through and anything can happen in the next 6 months from now. Let’s enjoy the journey – whatever may happen. So far, scientists at CERN are happy to report finding new particles in experimentation after being suggested theoretically. This could change future advances in science and hopefully towards technology that allows humans to live in harmony with this planet. I believe that technology can helps us reduce our ecological footprint on this planet and allow us to live in a cleaner world where we recycle everything and landfill nothing. Indeed this may be a point much further in the future than this year but we will achieve it one day. The throw away culture of many societies needs to cease and we can all help work towards that goal. More updates to come soon but hello all for now!
Ahhh, it’s great when people can connect so easily in this day and age – with no cost other than an internet connection. I must give thanks to Skype for enabling me to speak with distant friends for as long as I want, for free! I can keep distant friends close friends from Australia to Norway, from Thailand
to Scotland. Thanks Skype
This evening, I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with Eline in Norway and discussing “connected consciousness” ideas, truly refreshing! She had some very interesting ideas to present and for that I am truly grateful.
You Eline, are right when you say that a long time ago, some visionaries, gurus, prophets, mystic, enlightened ones (I could go on!) were very forward thinking and few and far between, but with the passage of time, and the more consciously connected the entire human race has become, the more those ideas spread throughout the collective consciousness.
I believe those conscious ideas ripple like waves throughout the human consciousness – in one sense pushing the boundaries of the collective consciousness and also reflecting back to ripple out across the rest.
Raindrops – Each illuminating raindrop falls from above but ripples outwards. After after the moment of inception, and reflection, a conscious bubble lifts up, free from the puddle and is at one with itself, a truly spherical droplet, it reflects until ready to return to the bigger puddle.
Sometimes, the returning droplet inspires another droplet to break free and repeat a similar process, but not quite as high as the first.. maybe a third, before the water ripples out. Little raindrops of inspiration from above on this beautiful blue marble we know as Mother Earth.

The probability we will have more mystical moments, synchronous signs, conscious coincidences and sparks of spiritual enlightenment, are much higher in this moment now, than ever before…
What a fantastic time to be alive! I’m truly inspired!
The following was written on the 28th of November 2006 @ 08:58am but never published. I just reread it and it seems more apt than ever before so it’s being posted now…
There’s more and more people around me that appear to awakening to the fact that reality is not just the material things you can see before around. Our eyes are but one of five physical senses we use to guage our sense of reality. Sometimes we go with our heart, or with our mind … intuition.
Our gut feeling, our intuition, our sixth sense, is a sense that we’ve been led to believe doesn’t exist. Doesn’t it? Within the quacky world of quantum physics we’re inevitibly entagled with the start of the big bang .. everything. We can appreciate that reality isn’t quite as clear cut as we’d thought when we consider this. Mysterious to say the least!
Anyway, it seems more and more people are waking up to there’s a whole other dimension to life. In many different ways bettering themselves from just believing. Believing you have the power to change your reality. Awakening to the ability within all of us, a reconnection to everything .. Mother Nature could reconnect us to her bosom with her natural forces … or we could reconnect to Mother Nature with our forces /energy (which in my opinion would be a much better alternative).
If we create our realities with a green undertone then it will manifest itself.
Many days have passed since my last post, and more than ever, time seems to be speeding up. There’s a good reason for this: more choice.
What car .. What insurance .. what mortgage .. what belief system .. what to wear .. we have much more choice nowadays than any human has ever had before, and since having choices means making decisions, we ultimately have to make more decisions but in the same amount of time. This therefore means our perception of time is that it is speeding up. More and more we have less time to do the things we want…
So time has passed. So much has changed and yet much of it seems to be the same, much like a stone changing in a river, only faster. I guess wheels are in motion for greater change, we just haven’t seen the results … yet. US politics are likely to change drastically, people are caring more about their environment, but not everyone… many things are changing for the better but not fast enough …
Today (6th October 2006), is Red Galactic Dragon kin. What?! You may ask…
It’s a cycle of 260 days, of which there are 20 solar tones, and 13 lunar tones (13×20=260). On each one of these 260 days, different energies are said to radiate from the sun and somewhat define each person based on the energies for that day. Red Galactic Dragon comes around only once every 260 days, and it’s today! Each person born in Mayan culture would have their name based on one of these days. So each person born on any Red Galactic Dragon day would have the same first name. Kind of cool really.
The 13 Moon Calendar and worldwide peace movement is fascinating. More so given it’s context, leading up to 2012 (the end of a time cycle – not the end of the world). I cannot do the whole movement justice by explaining it all here, there are many other websites more than capable of doing that! www.tortuga.com or 13moon.com.
see which one of 260 things you could be here:

Before I begin I must note the following: I am not ever going to step foot inside the ferious debate of intelligent design v evolution. Like black and white, Yin & Yang, left & right, etc, it’s the whole that matters. They need each other to exist.
What I aim to note here is more of my application of a belief that we are co-creating our own realities. When we are conscious of that one fact, we can see the world in a much different way. It’s a matter of changing our stuck belief systems, opening up to a different way of seeing things. Consciously.
When we are conscious of not only where we are and what we can do, we can consciously create a change. Changes in many ways… More change brings more choice, and vice versa. Change is happening – no matter who you are, or whatever you believe, you’ll have no doubt noticed that there is now, more than *ever* before, more choice. Choice on many fronts – what job you have, what you’ll have for food, what music you like, what hair cut you present – we have more choice and with it we have more change. More change means time seems to speed up .. we don’t have enough time to do all the things we choose to do!
Now on a choice level, we can choose to live our lives or choose to have them be lived. Some people feel comfort in following “the movie”.. Letting it play before them as they soak it up. Some others consciously believe that they can create their own reality more to how they want it. I’d have to follow that belief…
within the last year, there’s been many more dreams that have a stark relevance to the next day, “coincidences” that’d make many want to buy a lottery ticket, many more moments where the physical world doesn’t seem so physical, or least a world that can’t be affected by mere thoughts in concsiousness. The last year has been one filled with moments. Moments where I’m powerless to resisting thinking there’s something more to reality. More than this physical realm which we inhabit.
One example from today. I flicked a business card sized piece of advertising and it landed upon a water cooler a couple of metres away, to a conscious observer. After a brief jostle of lightheartedness – I wouldn’t do it again for I wouldn’t look as impressive! The same conscious observer left the room, (the lights just flickered as I pondered “conscious observer”! – and again and I pondered the first moment! [ok! thank you!]… So this conscious observer was leaving the room, and I flicked another of my flying frisbees… it flew, curved and hit the top corner of the water bottle before acrobaticlly landing on the top! Of course I wanted it to! It’s like not trying to think about where you should flick the card, more where you want it to land and just go with that .. go with it … Be conscious of it, but don’t control it in a physical sense.
It happened as I planned because I was conscious I could influence it. Had I just thought, OK, I have to flick this thing, and where will I flick it, how will it fly? I alsready subscribe to the simple laws that those are the only influence my flicking will ever have. Choose that until it actually happens, ANYTHING can happen, then it could fall flat on it’s advertised face, or fly to the flat plateau of the water dispnser bottle. Believe that’s the option that will happen, be conscious it can exist and then let it happen.
One fun pasttime with a good mate in London called Chris, was flicking some random object towards the other person, scoring bonus points if you hit them in the head with anything from a train ticket to a cork to the unburnt end of an emptied cigarette. The trick was to just believe you were going to get a certain point. It’s experimenting. After a while, you can discern chance from some remarked phenomena, the underlyng success seemed to come from just knowing some shots to be exactly as you planned.
This all of course requires one to think that the physical world isn’t quite as physical as we’ve long believed but rather this plasticine(tm) that we can somehow shape and mould to our desires. Anyone can experiment, be conscious that there’s at least a possibility, and then work from where, as you please… you might be surprised! “It could blow your mind!”
Upon experimentation in many facets, I’ve had many moments that collectively defy rational thought in a current sense. They don’t fit necessarily what we’ve been told or led to believe. From a fruit bowl that tips over after earlier I tried to move a seperate object with my mind and then pondered how people offer gifts of fruits to gods as the bananas in my fruit bowl had gone past how I’d like them, but others would still eat them. The fruit bowl on a solid table with nobody nearby tipped over later that evening as I was relaxed. After being a little spooked, I recognised the event and pondered the many possibilities. I reconstructed apple/banana scenarios in the fruit bowl to try get a natural falling from riping to exact point to tip the large wire fruit holding structure over (i’ll get a picture tomorrow). No matter the “coincidence”, it’s beautiful to realise that from two conscious moments, I got an essential 3rd reaction – not linked before this event. A moment.
Another moment came many months later when I had a disagreement with someone + one complaining of my wanting to sleep early having to get up 6 hours to start a 12 hour shift. After a painful esclation I was left full of energy trying to sleep .. but I couldn’t. I wanted a fruit bowl incident to catch their attention, to make them stop and think, be quiet and ponder… I was so full of energy I never really drifted off! Later when I woke up, my hard drive had crashed, for good. Oh well.
The moment came at 3 or so weeks later when someone + one (two late twenties women) had their makeup all mixed up, and the + one’s dress was soaked in water. So it wasn’t just my hard drive! An interesting anecdote is that hours ealier to this whole event, I was baking a Sculpey(tm) Red Dragon I’d lovingly crafted over a week on and off. I was tentative in putting my art in an over with wings spread, for fear of meltdown but I did. I set a timer on the microwave without the time set. At 1:27 on the microwave, I pressed a button to reveal how long was left but nothing happened. The second seemed like an eternity as the 1:27 didn’t change. It then change to 1:26, and a second later I knew the timer was showing, not the wrong clock. Coincidence that it happened baking my RedDragon (pictures soon!)… Weird and again, all in the last year.
Within the last several years, the card, cork & cigarette was a conscious reality, though one of experimentation. That was what started it all, and playing pool. Thanks Chris! You ready for a challenge?!
Consciously co-create! Everyone can, but they just don’t think they can! Believe.
Ummm … I think you have to be already ethically minded for it to work properly… I think it only works when you can love everything around you exactly for what it is…
everything has it’s purpose.

It’s 22:22 and I’m done Synchroncity .. some photos soon!
In this reality that fades away to the reality of the subconscious, I am finding more synchronicity between the two… I’m having dreams that contain complete references to conscious world twists that leave me thinking – Thankfully that’s only a dream…
Surprise comes later when I see a reference to my dream in the world, not long from waking up. There, plain as day – before my conscious sight and feeling. It beautiful yet offsetting… it’s mysterious yet clear… it seems to happening a little more frequently! And sometimes later on in the day…
Tonight I’ll sleep like a log.
more another time
Isn’t it strange how we reflect on our past, in the present, to live in the future yet there is only ever an eternal now. Sort of pointless to try live in the future when the future doesn’t exist.
Right now i am changing this post from the past in the present for a future.
Within this technosphere surrounding our beautiful planet Earth we have many advanced gadgets. Tools to spark our minds, expand communication and release creativity on a scale never before seen by humankind. We have more choice than anyone has ever had before us. Realise that and thank this planet for providing it all for us…

A while ago I was playing a meditation mp3 over some music to see how well it would fit and by accident, I found a good quote to fit over a progressive track I like. The track is Greppi’s World – Una Questione Informatica with the narrative by Alan Watts – Teaches Meditation. The result = informatica.mp3 (right click Save Target As…)
I typed up the narrative as best I could and credit goes to Alan Watts for speech, the whole thing is well worth a listen. Here’s the text:
We have a common saying talking to yourself is the first sign of madness, now obviously, if I talk all the time – I don’t hear what anyone else has to say. And so in exactly the same way if I think all the time, that is to say if I talk to myself all the time, I don’t have anything to think about except thoughts and therefore I am living entirely in the world of symbols and am never in relationship with reality. Alright, now thats the first basic reason for meditation but there is another sense and this is going to be a bit little more difficult to understand why we could say that meditation doesn’t have a reason or doesn’t have a purpose and in this respect its unlike almost all other things that we do except perhaps making music and dancing because when we make music we don’t do it in order to reach a certain point such as the end of the composition, if that were the purpose of music, to get to end of the piece then obviously the fastest players would be the best and so likewise when we are dancing. we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as we would be if were taking a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, when we play music the playing itself is the point, exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment, and therefore if you meditate for an ulteria movtive, that is to say, to improve your mind, to improve your character, to be more efficient in life, you’ve got your eye on the future and you are not meditating – because, the future, is a concept, it doesn’t exist – as the proverb says, tomorrow never comes. There is no such thing as tomorrow, there never will be – because time is always now and thats one of the things we discover when we stop talking to ourselves, stop thinking, we find there is only a present, only an eternal now. So, it’s funny then isn’t it? That one meditates for no reason at all except we could say for the enjoyment of it and here I would interpose, the essential principle [is] that meditation is supposed to be fun. It’s not something we do as a grim duty, the trouble with religion as we know it is that it is so mixed up with grim duties, we do it because it’s “good for you”, a kind of self punishment. Well meditation when correctly done, has nothing to do with all that, it’s a kind of “diggin’ the present”, it’s a kind of “groovin’ with the eternal now, and brings us into a state of peace where we can understand that the point of life, the place where it’s at is simply here and now…
- Alan Watts
More soon… Including snow pics .. YES! There’s been some snow!
