DRIFTING

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

When we are confronted by the possibility that everything we’ve learned in life could be a lie, how do we “know” what we think we know?

SEA OF LIES

FLOATING ON AN ENDLESS SEA
OF QUESTIONS AND UNCERTAINTY.
DRIFTING ON AND IN A FATHOMLESS ABYSS:
A TINY PLANET FLOATING IN THE SKY.
OUR NAKED FLESH CANNOT SURVIVE
THE AIRLESS COLD ON EITHER SIDE.
DRIVEN BY WINDS OF CHAOS AND REALITY
WE STEER OUR TINY BOAT OF LIES
TO SUSTAIN OUR FRAGILE LIVES
FOR AN INSTANT IN ETERNITY.
WHO NAVIGATES THE BRUTAL TIDES?
ARE WE OUR ONLY FRIEND AND GUIDE
WHILE SAILING THROUGH INFINITY?

DOUBT EVERTHING

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

BACONSPEAREOn planet Earth, it’s really not a good idea to “believe” or to accept ANYTHING on the surface.  As safe bet is to DOUBT EVERYTHING.

This is especially true when it to do with “royalty” or “leaders” of governments.  I very excellent example of this illustrated by the discovery that Sir Francis Bacon was the “bastard” son of Queen Elizabeth I of England. (7 September 1533 – 24 March 1603)  This is compounded by the discovery that Sir Francis Bacon actually wrote the plays attributed to Bill Shakespeare!

Sir Francis Bacon was a scientist, philosopher, courtier, diplomat, essayist, historian and successful politician, who served as Solicitor General (1607), Attorney General (1613) and Lord Chancellor (1618). Those who subscribe to the theory that Sir Francis Bacon wrote the Shakespeare work generally refer to themselves as “Baconians”, while dubbing those who maintain the orthodox view that William Shakespeare of Stratford wrote them “Stratfordians”.

The idea was first proposed by Delia Bacon in lectures and conversations with intellectuals in America and Britain. William Henry Smith was the first to publish the theory in a letter to Lord Ellesmere published in the form of a sixteen-page pamphlet entitled Was Lord Bacon the Author of Shakespeare’s Plays?  Smith suggested that several letters to and from Francis Bacon hinted at his authorship. A year later, both Smith and Delia Bacon published books expounding the Baconian theory. In Delia Bacon’s work, “Shakespeare” was represented as a group of writers, including Francis Bacon, Sir Walter Raleigh and Edmund Spenser, whose agenda was to propagate an anti-monarchial system of philosophy by secreting it in the text.

Baconian theory developed a new twist in the writings of Orville Ward Owen and Elizabeth Wells Gallup. Owen’s book Sir Francis Bacon’s Cipher Story (1893–5) claimed to have discovered a secret history of the Elizabethan era hidden in cipher-form in Bacon/Shakespeare’s works. The most remarkable revelation was that Bacon was the son of Queen Elizabeth. According to Owen, Bacon revealed that Elizabeth was secretly married to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, who fathered both Bacon himself and Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex, the latter ruthlessly executed by his own mother in 1601. Bacon was the true heir to the throne of England, but had been excluded from his rightful place. This tragic life-story was the secret hidden in the plays.

Baconian theory had received support from a number of high profile individuals. Mark Twain showed an inclination for it in his essay Is Shakespeare Dead?   Friedrich Nietzsche expressed interest in and gave credence to the Baconian theory in his writings. The German mathematician Georg Cantor believed that Shakespeare was Bacon. He eventually published two pamphlets supporting the theory in 1896 and 1897.  By 1900 leading Baconians were asserting that their cause would soon be won.

In 1916 a judge in Chicago ruled in a civil trial that Bacon was the true author of the Shakespeare canon!

TRANSPARENT TRANSPARENCY

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Personally, I spent many years of my pre-retirement business career in the “branding” industry.  What I observed from this kind of work sickened my soul.  I finally quit, and resolved that being a “starving artist” is infinitely more gratifying than being a “corporate whore”, regardless of the paycheck.

My clients were corporations who wanted to influence people to pay money to buy their product or service.  Usually, any method, trick, gimmick, lie, and covert strategy that money can buy is acceptable in corporate “marketing”.  However, “transparency” or “truth” are NOT acceptable. The bigger and more powerful the corporations, governments, etc., , the less “truth in advertising”, is allowed.  It’s a kind of  unwritten law like “never let the other team know your game plan”, (or your true intentions).  Corporate marketing is an “us” against “them” of mind-control game.  A “brand” is an artificially contrived “false facade” of “acceptable lies”.  On Wall Street, and in corporations and governments it’s all, and only, about money and power.  No rules apply.

The following video investigates the subject of transparency in advertising, a talk given by Morgan Spurlock (who revealed that “McFoods” do NOT decay in his film “SuperSize Me“, and are, therefore, NOT food.)

LEARNING CHAOS

CHAOS

It has been said that all we have been taught on Earth are lies and half-truths.  Therefore, in order to learn, we must first “unlearn”.  To discover Who You Really Are, you must first “unlearn” the false ideas of “YOU” into which you have been tricked, coerced or indoctrinated to accept as “truth”.   When “truth” has been stripped away, what remains is “you”.

THE MILK OF BRUTALITY

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Truth is often Ugly and Brutal…. but is none the less true. In actual fact human beings don’t need cows milk to live. In fact, human bodies don’t create the enzyme needed to digest cows milk, which is called Lactase. (read about it here) If you are not informed about how cows milk is actually produced and harvested, please watch this video. Please realize the Cattle and Dairy industry spend BILLIONS every year brainwashing humans with false advertising mythology about the “health benefits” of milk and meat.  Why?  FINANCIAL GAIN!  Period.  It’s all bullshit.  Literally.   After you watch this excellent video will hopefully lose your appetite for milk (and meat also).
