Dear Share, re: Best simply to ride the wave and let it pass.  

You inserted yourself into the conversation between Xeno and Judy and made 
multiple (count the number, Share) posts to Judy demonstrating that you woke up 
on the wrong side of the bed (you might consider asking Barry to stop stealing 
the covers - perhaps you aren't getting enough sleep at night?).  Is *your* 
behavior, initiated by *you,* demonstrating what you state above?

At a certain point on Monday morning, Xeno and Judy both seemed more light 
hearted about it and that is what I was enjoying. Nothing sadistic about that 
IMO. And I have noticed that these arguments do come and go on a regular basis. 
Best to simply ride the wave and let it pass.

I think Share (hi Share) is having a lot of fun with this and to me there is 
nothing that fun about it. She seems to be acting like it is not only a joke 
but is taking pleasure in the discord and adding to it in only the way she can. 
Barry is doing the usual which is to apparently not close his eyes to even 
sleep while there is a chance to get Judy and keep adding imaginary fuel to 
the fire. Xeno quoting Shakespeare is a small reprieve however. But I am 
sensing a tad bit of sadism in our dormouse, which I had not seen before. The 
fact that our alleged 'victim' of PR is having fun right now is revelatory.

Yes, Whole Foods is in many places.  That article Barry posted from Huffington 
Post re: Whole Foods was hilarious, btw.  Richard, just read that and then let 
it go.  It's going to be O.K. Shop there as much as you like.  And, as far as 
Texas is concerned, I think Corpus Christi might be the only really tolerable

Ann, I thought about informing Share why her statement below is nonsense, 
backing it up with documentation, making her mad by using the acronym IMHO, but 
I'm going to start the day off on a different tack and say a little prayer for 
her.  I am thrilled however, Ann, that Barry said buh bye, if even for a day. 
He sounded like he was about to wet his pants.  Bless you.

Barry is lying; everyone who has been following this knows he's lying. He knows 
they know he's lying. Even Share knows he's lying.

Somebody please explain to me what the point is. What does a person get out of 
lying when they know they aren't deceiving anybody? What do they get out of 
advertising that they're a liar, over and over again (six times, so far, in 
this case)? Why would they want to be known as a liar? And a  malicious liar, 
at that?

I've never understood this. What's the payoff?

(snip)

What you're missing is the delicious irony of all this.
The person who has called more people Liar! than 
anyone else in Internet history got peeved that anyone
would even infer such a thing about *her*, and threw
a tantrum. She declared that she would never have any
discussions with the offending person until he either
documented his inference or retracted it. He did 
neither, and in effect *thanked* her in advance for
no longer bothering him with her discussions.

She went fuckin' CRAZY, first backpedaling to claim
that her statement didn't mean that she couldn't 
comment on his posts, and then set forth to make
several posts in which she addressed him directly
and tried to provoke a reply, clearly an attempt at 
discussion. 

In other words, the person who *specializes* in 
calling other people liars on this forum PROVED
HERSELF TO BE A LIAR. 


I'd call that fun. You, caught up in your Mean
Girl crush on the only person on the forum bitchier
than you, can call it whatever you want. :-)

My point was Richard's flagrant dishonesty in (among other things) claiming

You are either very dishonest or very stupid. You made accusations which, if

I don't think you're so stupid as not to have realized this.


I said I wouldn't discuss anything with you unless you withdraw your 
accusations (you can't document them because they're patently not true). I 
didn't say I wouldn't comment if I found it appropriate to do so (e.g., if you 
make any more false or insulting statements about me, I may respond to them). 
But your accusations, as long as they're on the table, have effectively 
foreclosed on the possibility of our having a friendly discussion of 
philosophy or science or music or any other neutral topic.


And that's not even a tiny bit Robinish, nor are you so stupid as to think

Share, I have written you many straightforward posts.  You appear to be 
incapable of grasping the main point of any straightforward post; you seem to 
realize there *is* a point, at which time you move always to derail the post in 
your own mind,  through posting on top of it with meaningless frivolity, 
nonsensical interpretation, or purposeful misinterpretation to avoid whatever 
reality is coming through to you that you want to reject.

You are either very dishonest or very stupid. You made accusations which, if

I don't think you're so stupid as not to have realized this.


I said I wouldn't discuss anything with you unless you withdraw your 
accusations (you can't document them because they're patently not true). I 
didn't say I wouldn't comment if I found it appropriate to do so (e.g., if you 
make any more false or insulting statements about me, I may respond to them). 
But your accusations, as long as they're on the table, have effectively 
foreclosed on the possibility of our having a friendly discussion of 
philosophy or science or music or any other neutral topic.


And that's not even a tiny bit Robinish, nor are you so stupid as to think 
it is.

true that some sciences are more equal than others. So the iffy ones such as

But do we even know what mathematics is? What are mathematical discoveries? 
What are we discovering? Where does the necessity of mathematical truth come 
from? 


 Could you rephrase Godel in a little more easier way?



I doubt it! Godel's proof, like quantum indeterminacy, seems to point to 
something most peculiar, but no one can quite agree about what that is (or 
means). But perhaps we can just return to the logical positivists that were 
referred to earlier in the thread...


I'd suggest that many folks who idealise science have in their mind some 
loose form of logical positivism (either explicit or implicit). Like this:


Q: What makes science work?  
A: The experimental method


Q: But why does the experimental method work? 
A: Because we test our theories against experience


Q: What do you mean by experience? 
A: The evidence of our senses


Q: What is sense data?
A: The images in our brain


Q: What other types of knowledge are there?
A: That's all there is


Q: So what about Logic and Mathematics? They're not sense data!
A: They just describe the relations between the concepts and symbols we use 
to refer to sense data


The trouble with this idea is that the work of Russell and Frege in the 
twentieth century seemed to show that mathematics could not be reduced to 
logic (simple, self-evident tautologies). Furthermore, maths seems to result 
in bizarre, counter-intuitive discoveries (such as Cantor's proof that some 
infinities are larger than others). So the point of Godel is that he appears 
to add more spice to this pot with his incompleteness theorem. 


If Cantor's discovery does not come from the evidence of his (our) senses, 
and if it doesn't simply represent the manipulation of self-evident axioms.

The history of Seattle, WA is also closely linked to the water closet - the 
good ol' days. 



The town’s proximity to sea level caused a new problem, literally, to rise up. 
In 1851, the same year the Denny party arrived, a fancy new device was 
introduced at the White House. It was called a “water closet,” and, boy, did 
these things take off in popularity. Even in the tiny frontier town of Seattle, 
indoor toilets became the rage.
With sawdust in the streets, buildings on stilts and toilets turning into 
geysers on a daily basis, Seattle was badly in need of remodeling. By 1882, the 
city health commissioner, in his annual report, highlighted the fact that our 
sewers were operating at full blast, but it wasn’t a one-way river. Twice a day 
when the tides came in, the sewers flowed with it—backwards. Toilets became 
fountains!

When one pot was emptied from a French Quarter balcony onto the head of a Union

Healthy diet may reverse aging, study finds
Maggie FoxNBC NewsA program of healthy eating, exercise and stress reduction 
can not only reverse some diseases -- it may actually slow down the aging 
process at the genetic level, researchers reported Monday.

The lifestyle changes affected the telomeres -- little caps on the end of the 
chromosomes that carry the DNA, the team at the University of California, San 
Francisco report.
The report, published in Lancet Oncology, is based on just a few men, and 
prostate cancer patients at that. But it shows surprising results: Men who 
switched to a vegan diet, added exercise and stress reduction had longer 
telomeres.
The men followed a program advocated by Dr. Dean Ornish, who has long 
researched the role of a very low-fat, vegetarian diet in improving health. 
Ornish, a professor of medicine at UCSF, worked with telomere expert Dr. 
Elizabeth Blackburn, who won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine for her 
discoveries.
“Taken as a whole, this is really the first study showing that any 
intervention may reduce cellular aging,” Ornish told NBC News. “I think these 
findings are almost certainly not restricted to men with prostate cancer.” 
Ornish and Blackburn’s team examined 10 prostate cancer patients who had 
chosen to try Ornish’s program, and compared them to 25 patients who had not. 
They all had early stage prostate cancer that wasn’t considered dangerous.
The program includes eating a diet high in whole foods, fruits, vegetables, 
unrefined grains and keeping fat to 10 percent of calories. The average 
American gets more than a third of calories from fat. For the first three 
months, volunteers got take-home meals.
They also exercised, walking at least 30 minutes a day, six days a week, did 
yoga-based stretching and breathing exercises, practiced relaxation techniques 
and went to weekly one-hour stress-reduction group sessions. And they gave 
blood samples.
“We found that telomerase increased by 30 percent in just three months,” 
Ornish said. Telomerase is an enzyme that affects telomeres. They also looked 
at gene activity. “Gene expression on 500 genes changed, in every case in a 
beneficial way,” Ornish told NBC News.
Five years later, the team took blood samples again. The 10 men who followed 
the Ornish plan had significantly longer telomeres five years later -- on 
average 10 percent longer. The 25 men who had not followed the program had 
shorter telomeres -- 3 percent shorter on average.

“The more people changed their lifestyles, the more they improved,” Ornish 
said.
Ornish’s diet plan has been shown to reverse heart disease, diabetes and may 
help keep early prostate cancer in check.
Ornish was working with prostate cancer patients who had chosen not to get any 
treatment for their tumors. Only a few men had given enough blood in the study 
to make it possible to test their stored samples, so he thinks a larger study 
should now be conducted.

Ornish says the program is easy to follow. Each of the 10 men had stuck with 
it for five years and longer -- long past the time they were enrolled in the 
study.

“We are getting 85 to 95 percent

I created an email in gmail and downloaded Google Chrome which works much

something to do with switching back and forth between browsers or cache or

it's
better to drink plain water instead of sodas, for good health, and so your 
weight 
doesn't balloon up.

Then, a gal who lives in Fairfield, IA replies that sodas are killers, and that 
drinking 
plain water is better in order to maintain good health, and cites H.H. Mitchell 
in The

So, a Bharata guy who lives in California says it all depends on your 'dosha',

Maybe it's time to review some more FFL Protocols 
for posting:

1. Compose the first line of your message so that 
it can be easily read in Message View.

2. Don't copy and paste the quoted text for the 
first line of text of your own message.

3. Try to avoid redundancy in the Message View.

4. Reserve blue text for hyper text links.

5. Indicate quoted text with a  right angle bracket 
or other indicator.

6. Try to format your text for easy reading and 
replying.

Redundancy Example: 

357475  Re: Describing Communal (Meditating) Fairfield

Judy sez: Nothing wrong with iranitea's observations 
and information on their own terms.

Share, I'm glad that David is famous and has explored and marketed the path for 
men and women to spiritual sex.  Whatever works and I'm glad that some of us 
and you, personally, benefited.  I have nothing against him; I don't know him.  
I guess spiritual sex won't keep a marriage intact, necessarily.  I'm sure that 
his comment on the incredible silence in FF helped validate for you that it 
*is*, in fact incredible and silent there in Fairfield.  What struck me as 
funny was the manner in which you touted out his name to provide credibility 
for your statement on the karma of the Brits.  I wonder what the karma is of 
the US conquerors who tried to destroy the Native American culture?  Maybe 
Gangaji knows.   

Now, given my poor display of manners towards my favorite mean girl Bob the 
other night (although I really was only teasing him), and given the way he 
turned it around and got right to the heart of the matter as always, I have 
decided to take the advice I was giving you and work on connecting *my* mind 
and heart and therefore have relegated myself to the den for a little quiet 
meditation of undetermined length.  Here I go, walking off the stage:)

Emily, before my time, some famous teachers have visited FF: Byron Katie, 
Gangaji, Francis Lucille. But David Deida and his then wife Sofia were in a 
slightly different category, being teachers with a focus on intimate 
relationships. David had been some kind of physics genius before he set off on 
a spiritual path. I think Adida was one of his main teachers and he and Ken 
Wilbur are buddies, just to put him in a maybe better known context.

Anyway, some of us in FF very much benefited from the work David and Sofia did 
with us which was over 15 years ago now. They are no longer married. Sofia 
teaches yoga and David continues giving workshops, but not so often as they 
once did. His books are pretty powerful. He's one teacher who commented on the 
incredible silence in FF.

Emily, a compatibility reading is a standard jyotish reading in which the 
charts of two people are analyzed for compatibility. From my experience it's 
very accurate. Usually it's done when 2 people want to get married but it can 
also be done for business partnerships.

Just as a followup, the roach's claim that the blue
in question as sacré bleu (the sacred blue) is cobalt
blue is completely incorrect. Cobalt blue was made
from cobalt sulfinate, was used primarily in ceramics
and glassware, and was cheap. It was occasionally used
as a paint pigment by poor painters, as a replacement
for true ultramarine.

The sacré blue (ultramarine) was made from lapis 
lazuli, at the time available only in Afghanistan, and 
this rather scarce. It was more expensive than gold.
There are at least two Michaelangelo paintings that 
were left unfinished because he (or his patron) could
not afford the sacré bleu necessary to finish them.
That is the color Chris wrote his novel about.

It's just a little detail, but I thought I'd throw it
out as a warning to those who try to turn everything
into an ego-battle to prove how smart they are, and
how stupid the people they don't like are. If you're
lame enough to waste your life doing petty shit like 
that, it really helps to get your facts straight 
*when* doing it. Just sayin'...

How do you know, when you think blue--when you say 
blue--that you are talking about the same blue as 
anyone else?
You cannot get a grip on blue.
Blue is the sky, the sea, a god's eye, a devil's 
tail, a birth, a strangulation, a virgin's cloak, 
a monkey's ass. It's a butterfly, a bird, a spicy 
joke, the saddest song, the brightest day.
Blue is sly, slick, it slides into the room sideways, 
a slippery trickster.
This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, 
there's nothing true about it. Blue is beauty, not 
truth. True Blue is a ruse, a rhyme; it's there, 
then it's not. Blue is a deeply sneaky color.
Even deep blue is shallow.
Blue is glory and power, a wave, a particle, a 
vibration, a resonance, a spirit, a passion, a 
memory, a vanity, a metaphor, a dream.
Blue is a simile.
Blue, she is like a woman.

 Thanks also for the clips of Chris talking. He's one of

Some, whom many suspect are just pissed off that their posts have been deemed 
not worthy of reading every word of :-), have suggested in the past that one 
cannot get a true picture of what a poster is trying to say from Message 
View. 

I disagree, but it might be because of my training in the more occult arts, 
plus long experience on the Internet since before it was called that, and on 
FFL itself. I find it difficult to believe that *anyone* here can't figure out 
what a poster whose stuff they've read for years is on about from the first 
few words of most of their posts. Once you know that, and when you realize that 
you've seen it all before, why read through all the verbiage again?

Sure, they may do a Robin and say the same thing over and over again, twenty 
different ways in one post, but in my experience the what they were trying to 
say was clear in the first few words, so why bother with the rest? More 
important, I've found that one can get a reliably clear picture of the INTENT 
of the post just from those first few lines. 

For example, if a poster is replying to pretty much everything another person 
writes, even though that person has informed them in the past that they have no 
intention of *ever* replying to them again (as a couple of people have done 
with Curtis), the INTENT of such a poster is pretty clear. They're either 
trying to get the person they're replying to, or trying to taunt or insult 
them into changing their mind and falling into yet another sucker-bait, 
endless, tarbaby argument-trap. 

The same is true if the person has a long, long, long, long track record of 
dumping on another poster on the forum, and chooses to mention their name in 
the first few lines. You know the instant you see this that it's going to be a 
hit post, so why bother to read it, unless you're one of those people who 
*gets off* reading such stuff. 

My take on Fairfield Life is that very few people seem to notice the INTENT of 
people's posts. They get sucked in by the flowery language used, or by other 
things, and often don't seem to notice that there is often no other conceivable 
purpose for the post *other* than to dump -- once again -- on someone they've 
developed an obsessive habit of dumping on. 

For me, the deja vu characteristics of such posts just leap out at me from 
the first few words of them. I've done experiments in the past -- assessing 
what the INTENT of certain people's posts are from the first few words and then 
reading the whole thing to see if my original impression was correct -- and 
I've found that I was rarely wrong. 

If you CAN'T do this, I might suggest that there might be something lacking in 
*your* reading skills, rather than mine. Just sayin'...

in their *imagery*, as opposed to any meaning they might have held for me. 

And y'know...many of them held up over time. Especially this one, which 
couldn't be a more striking example of images and words used just for the hell

Greatest Songs Of All Time. (The Bobster also holds position #1.) 

The song was called surrealist when it came out, and that's as good a 
description as any. The listener is *bombarded* with images from all over the 
metaphorical, allegorical, and symbolic map, but NONE of them are metaphors, 
allegories, or symbols. They are what they are...images, strung together in 
such a way as to paint an incredible visual dreamscape. And what a cast of 
characters there are in this painting: Cinderella, Cain  Abel, Quasimodo, the 
Good Samaritan, Noah, Shakespeare's Romeo and Ophelia, Einstein (disguised as 
Robin Hood), Casanova, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, and of course Dr. Filth himself. 

The song still moves me to this day, my suspicions that it never meant 
anything confirmed. Part of what accomplishes that is Charlie McKoy's masterful 
guitar backup, of course, which has actually been described in terms of 
painting: While Dylan's panoramic lyrics and hypnotic melody sketch out the 
vast canvas, it is McCoy's fills that give it their shading. Dylan himself 
described the song as a marathon, so if you don't have the full 11 minutes to 
invest, don't bother listening to the clip. But if you do, the lyrics are 
thoughtfully provided.

comparing himself 
to Bob Dylan by telling us over and over and over again that, like Dylan, he

meaning is for chumps who can't type as fast as they think..

I wonder if it's worth asking if Barry was being ironic or just confused? For 
starters, we might ask if it's
true that: past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior. and then 
ask ourselves if Barry has previously shown the emotional chops needed to be 
ironic. 

Few would doubt Robin if he said he was being ironic, but then Robin does not

Re Another is that Brave New World was an instruction manual.  He actually

Be aware though that initially Huxley set out to write a satire of  the dangers 
of technology but as he became engrossed in his creation he was also attracted 
by the appeal of the 24/7 hedonistic lifestyle he portrayed. That ambiguity is 
a major part of what make the book so tantalising. What a true work of prophecy 
that novel turned out to be. I've never been able to decide if the society 
portrayed in Brave New World is a paradise that I would have been truly happy 
in, or, on the contrary, would have been a soul-destroying nightmare. Whichever 
side you come down on you must admit that in the western world we are moving 
ever closer to Huxley's vision.

  about now and the 99% vs the 1%.  Elysium is a orbiting community
  where in the future the 1% have moved. Obviously a metaphor of a
  gated community.  Alex Jones bashed the film as being
  anti-white thats because Los Angeles in the future is mostly
  Hispanic.  But geez, California was part of Mexico before it
  became a state.  A Latino ghetto (Damon plays a Latino) sells the
  poverty element better than a white ghetto would have.  Neill
  Blomkamp's prior film was District 9 which was about apartheid.

To get the bad taste out of my eyes from watching a couple of episodes
of the US version of The Bridge, I
decided to watch the new season of
Borgen. What a difference.

Now, now, I watched the first episode of
  Broen.  I don't understand why you didn't like
  the US remake.  After all it's by the same
  writers and producers and done with a better
  budget.  The storyline was pretty much the
  same but adapted to the US/Mexican border.  I
  don't think Americans would have found a show
  about the the Denmark/Swedish border to be all
  that compelling.  Then they were able to bring
  the Mexican drug lord element in and the
  coyote element as well.

I think it is just your Amercans sucks,
  Europe good meme you often expound on here. 
  Of course you know I get that.  Hell, when the
  first day of my TTC in France I looked around
  and thought you idiot!  You're going be
  cooped up in a hotel for six months when you
  should be traveling around seeing Europe!  I
  did intend to get back and do exactly that but
  so far that was limited to a stopover in
  Amsterdam to and from India.

Of course the Swedish actress is sexier and
  Unger chose to play the role about bit more
  wallflower which sells the Aspergers a little
  better.

OTOH Crossing Lines, a European production
  which played on NBC this summer did
  respectively.  Yup, some scenes had subtitles
  too.  This may be the odd difference between
  Comcast running NBC and GE which ran it.  

After watching the first episode of Broen,
  which looked like someone captured it off a
  DVR on the composite  output.  I watched a DVD
  rental Evidence with Steven Moyer and Radha
  Mitchell.  Probably no interest to you and not
  to much of FFL but it was found footage horror
  flick with the spin being that Moyer is a
  forensic video analyst.

After that I tried to start a popular title on
  Netflix and stopped it as soon as it began
  rebuffering. So chose a Netflix recommended
  title Abduction of Eden which was
  excellent.  I had intended just to watch about
  a half hour but finished the whole film.  It's
  based on an true story about a girl who was
  abducted and forced into prostitution in the
  Las Vegas area.  I think we'll be seeing more
  from the young actor Matt O'Leary who did a
  bang up job on his role as her handler.  But I
  have to be a bit embarrassed as I assumed it
  was shot in the Southwest.  It was shot in
  Washington state in areas I am familiar with. 
  But eastern Washington doesn't look a whole
  lot different in the desert areas than the
  Southwest.  Just no suguaros.  :-D 



For those who have never seen the
series, it's a drama set in and
around
the buildings of the same name
(meaning citadel or castle)

BTW, turns out one doesn't need to respond in the Rich Text editor to style

Emily, 

Pardon me if you already know this, but I couldn't control myself once I 
realized that I might know something about the functionality of (Neo) Yahoo 
Groups that another contributor doesn't. For me, your link did not come through 
hot (click able); from Neo Yahoo Groups site, when you click Reply a small 
rectangle beside an X will appear in the upper right of the reply message 
window, when you click on that it will give you rich text functionality, the 
function bar will include two circles linked together to the left of the smiley 
face (don't say it), and that will give you hot linking capability. I'm sure 
this is the last time I'll know anything any contributor may not know, but in 
my defense, to paraphrase J. Paul Getty's comment about lawyers, why would you 
spend all that time learning IT when you can hire someone to do it for you.

  After what I would call a very clear but subdued awakening experience
  some years ago, things were pretty nice for several years. There was
  something about this particular experience, unlike others I had had long
  ago, that I could not grasp in any way. Even the attempt to talk about
  it stymied me. Then all hell broke loose. A vast amount of repressed
  material rose up and flowed out of me. A total surprise. So clearly the
  awakening was not a clean slate. It was ultra intense, say twenty times
  more intense than anything I had experienced up to then. And the
  experience was truly
 unusual because while my regular life flowed along,
  there was this other stuff that I knew was not real, but it felt so real
  it was impossible to not act on it. It was like my mind was split in two
  with two parallel lives running simultaneously, one the present and the
  other thoughts, feelings, behaviours from long ago. I had no clue what
  was happening.
  
  If I had asked a TM teacher what was happening they probably would have
  said I was 'just unstressing, that I should take it easy and maybe get
  my meditation checked or something'. No really useful information or
  guidelines that apply directly. Extreme experiences like this seem to be
  swept under the rug by TM teachers, anything not in the template. I
  suspect they do not really have any training to handle them. I found a
  solution in what
 I was reading. It seems that after a clear awakening,
  one's ability to keep repressed material repressed simply falls apart.
  The can of worms is open, and if something triggers the experience, you
  cannot close it, and the experience really does seem like you are coming
  apart at the seams. All you can do is endure it. Nothing helps. It is as
  if finally there is enough room in your world to experience this. The
  intellectual knowledge that this is common, that others experienced it,

Re: [FairfieldLife] Re: A Real Fairfield Life Post - Siduri in the Epic of Gilgamesh

2013-08-27 Thread Emily Reyn
Dear Bob, given what Siduri says, I would suggest that you get the pedicure.  
Mean girl love, Emily

Siduri is a character in the Epic of Gilgamesh. She is an alewife, a wise 
female divinity associated with fermentation. In the Old Babylonian version of 
the Epic, she attempts to dissuade Gilgamesh in his quest forimmortality, 
urging him to be content with the simple pleasures of life (Gilgamesh, whither 
are you wandering? Life, which you look for, you will never find. For when the 
gods created man, they let death be his share, and life withheld in their own 
hands. Gilgamesh, fill your belly. Day and night make merry. Let days be full 
of joy, dance and make music day and night. And wear fresh clothes. And wash 
your head and bathe. Look at the child that is holding your hand, and let your 
wife delight in your embrace. These things alone are the concern of 
men.)[1]Siduri's advice was recorded in the Old Babylonian version of Tablet X 
referred to as the Meissner fragment.

 Hey Bob, it's so nice to have you here.  You add color and

 I think you scared Barry which is why he doesn't reply to

 We are geneticaly hardwired to see symmetrical faces and 
 clear skin as attractive.  It indicates the genetic health 
 of the individual, resistance to infections etc.  Perhaps it 
 does irk him a bit when a woman gets attrracted to a baldy 
 like MMY.
 
 There are 6 categories of immune systems in humans and it's 
 reflected in facial features and smell.  You are attracted 
 to someone with a complementary immune system.  You are not 
 attracted to someone with a similar immune system.
 
 It's a mechanism by nature to prevent in-breeding. It also 
 ensures that the ofspring are healthy and have better immune 
 systems.


Thanks Jason, I plan to read more about this; it could explain why all the 
wives are brunettes and I'm blond and our children are all Eurasian, and why
mosquitoes within 100 miles want to make a meal out of me and never lay a 
glove on them. I'm thinking it may also explain why I'm attracted to 
multilingual  women who speak English as a second or third language; unlike 
that ungrateful sod Murdoch (remember she almost took a pie in the face for 
him)---who, just after filing for divorce, was overheard telling a friend that 
after 15 years of marriage he realized had never understood what Wendi was 
saying---I happen to believe that not speaking the same first language as your 
spouse has some real advantages. I mean, just this morning, the wife asked me 
if I would consider getting a pedicure as she is getting fed up with the 
scratches I'm leaving on her lovely long legs in the night. After standing 
there for a minute, I decided to quote her from my favorite overcoming the 
monster plot:

Gilgamesh said, 'I dreamed again. We stood in a deep gorge of the mountain, 
and beside it we two were like the smallest of swamp flies; and suddenly the 
mountain fell, it stuck me and caught my feet from under me. Then came an 
intolerable light blazing out, and in it was one whose grace and whose beauty
were greater than the beauty of this world. He pulled me out from under the 
mountain, he gave me water to drink and my heart was comforted, and he set my 
feet on the ground.' 

The wife's comment was: What if I pay half?

Sometimes you must speak another person's language to communicate with them. 
Maharishi said this, meet them at their level of consciousness, so rather than 
going on and on about compassion and my fellow man, sometimes a good go fuck 
yourself serves equally well. It is not said in judgment, but rather in 
context. An attempt at behavioral modification, as would be used on a very 
stubborn and angry adult child. It shows them immediately that there is a 
boundary there. Not something one would expect to have to do around adults,

Elmore Leonard was a true craftsman, an artist who, like

with his writing, and all while staying within genres
that the intelligentsia never really considered writing.

You know his dialogue even if you've never read a single

 Yep, I still think it's possible to set boundaries without using potentially 
 harmful language. In this I prefer to err on the side of being too gentle

 Sometimes you must speak another person's language to communicate with them. 
 Maharishi said this, meet them at their level of consciousness, so rather 
 than going on and on about compassion and my fellow man, sometimes a good go 
 fuck yourself serves equally well. It is not said in judgment, but rather in 
 context. An attempt at behavioral modification, as would be used on a very 
 stubborn and angry adult child. It shows them immediately that there is a 
 boundary there. Not something one would expect to have to do around adults, 
 setting social boundaries, but some are childish in their state of emotional 
 development. Sorry if it looks ugly from the outside, in, but not sorry 
 enough to stop it, if necessary.

This is a good start Bob. And although to be an OFFICIAL member you need to be 
participating at FFL on a regular basis you may be given a little special 
consideration given the fact that the QUALITY of your posts are quite high. 
This, and the fact that you have actually requested membership, although this 
will be put forward to the rest of the existing members for a vote, also stands 
in your favour for inclusion. We also have another male in our Club (Dr Jim) so 
including a second man will balance out our group nicely.

Yes, all in all, I could see you fitting in quite nicely. Of course as far as 
Emily goes, she is a very subtle type of MG but her membership goes without 
saying. She has all the qualities necessary: life experience around fools and 
acquired knowledge of how to deal with them, an ability to spot a fake or an 
asshole at 100 yards and a tongue capable of giving someone a good lashing when 
she has a mind to. 

Thanks again for your interest and we'll be getting back to you shortly with 
our vote result. However, don't cancel the SPANX yet, even though I am 
virtually positive you will make the cut.

  us as 
  
  a creative writer, art seems conspicuously absent from his contributions; 
  this might
  be less true if you consider manual (or phonebook) writing a creative act.
  
  As he makes clear above, Voldemort is a writer of manuals, and, IMO, when 
  he attempts 
  
  anything more than that, the word hack pretty much nails what he becomes.
  
  For something to be considered art it's imperative that it have the ability 
  to defamiliarize*
  by making the familiar, unfamiliar and *new*; Voldemort's posts completely 
  fail at this.

Obbajee, here's why I'm bemused by all this: when I first saw Alex's post, 
there was NO picture. But then there were posts about peckers and boners. I 
figured I know what those look like so didn't follow up. But then Emily posted 
something like: Don't give Share any ideas. Now that made me curious! I went to 
archives, found Alex's post and there was the pic. It didn't look like any 
pecker I'd ever seen! But RD had called it ugly so I figured it was a 
disfigured one. That's how clueless I am about this cutting activity Emily is 
relating to me! Anyway, I asked Emily what she meant and this morning received 
this reply from her.

This is all just to say that the most
 self destructive thing I've ever done is smoke for 8 years in my late teens 
and early twenties. And I stopped when I realized I was up to more than a pack 
a day. I've never smoked since then, almost 40 years.


Right now my diet is pretty restricted, by choice, and that is why I like to 
hear about other people's meals. My weight has been normal for 5 years now.


I don't go after ALL the women here. I don't go after Susan and I didn't go 
after Carol. Nor do I think I go after you, Obbajee but I hope you'll let me 
know if I'm wrong about that.


As for allegedly being drawn to turq, I guess he's the older brother I never 
had (-:

And finally, I guess Emily could take good care of herself by simply not 
participating in those aspects of FFL that are exhausting and or demanding.

Thank you both for all the nice music (-: Hope you have a good trip,
 Emily.

absolutely miserable. For a while, Rory's particle/

dialog and give me some relief. After a while, it
stopped working, and that was that.
  
   Whatever floats yer boat.
 
  Said with deep understanding, empathy and usual desire to make someone
 feel good about themselves (not) Barry bumbles on isolating himself in

 Don't worry about me, Ann. I found a technique that works even better

Thank you, this past week:

Ann, for often saying what is on my mind, and because I always run out of posts 
before I can express my general enthusiasm. MGC rocks! 

Seventh Ray, for tackling the issue of how to post images to Yahoo – FB account 
for Bowser coming up!
And for the completely kick-ass pictures of you and The Stooges, and the 
others, though I haven't looked at them all, yet.

Emily, for musical inspiration, wry humor, and that German woman, with Mittens.

Barry, for the contrast. With you around, everything else seems so much 
brighter. It is, simply, Tantriffic.

Ravi, for your spiritual tagging, and charioteer drive-bys, from the City of 
Angels. 

Judy, because I know you're out there!

Rory, for a jolt, bolt, and molt, and handfuls of wildflower seeds. Great to 
see you again.

Buck, for having a good heart, and probably getting bucked off one too many 
times.

Alex, for the wit of Oscar *Meyer*, and now being the same age as George 
Clooney, Sean Penn, and Ru Paul.

Nabby, Peace in all things, worldly and Divine, except maybe Windows 8.

RD, for always nailing that jelly to a tree; pinky-swear with Temple Dog.

MJ, for writing some fucking great stories, about Brother, and the others.

Richard, because every forum needs someone like you, a left turn, off of a left 
turn, off a dirt road. With a keyboard.

Edg, for creatively grinding his teeth for years. And that gizmo you were 
riding for awhile--

Obba, WTF?? but in a good way...

Card, for always reminding me of a larger world, and your Sanskrit musings.

M Dixon, for the occasional Molotov Cocktail, lit and rolled, never thrown.

Rick, The Dan Rather of spiritual broadcasting – What's The Frequency, 
Kenneth?

Merudanda, for your stream of consciousness pictures, and a playful heart.

Share, for your recent post about overwhelming Ananda. A stomp in the right 
direction.

Bhairitu, to paraphrase, I'd never join a conspiracy that would have me as one 
of its members.
Your feedback on my music has been invaluable.

John, The Bay Area Rocks, ya?!

Feste37, like a dry gin (Bombay Sapphire) martini, straight up.

Xeno, for never turning down the air conditioning - Brrr. 

Susan, for being translucent.

Seraphita, kicking ass and taking names, in the nicest possible way.

Well said, salyavin.

As for me, this morning I was at home in my apartment in Paris,
waiting for the torrential rain to let up enough so that I can run to
the Metro and go to work, and while waiting began to surf the TV
channels and found a show actually being broadcast in English. I
had heard of it before, because it's mentioned so often on Huffpost
and on other social media outlets, but I had never seen it before.

Now that I have finally seen Glee, I am convinced that it's pretty
much the perfect metaphor not only for Fairfield Life, but for the
fantasy projected lifestyle that many have come to believe is their
real lifestyle.

I mean, the basic metaphor is an American high school. That's
pretty much synonymous with superficiality, self-absorption, and
lack of contact with reality, right? It's rife with drama queens,
real queens, cliques, mean girl clubs, poseurs, and idiots who
believe they're geniuses.

If you live in the US and haven't seen it, I think you'd find it
*remarkably* reminiscent of Fairfield Life. And possibly life in
Fairfield itself.

Where else, after all, could you find a bunch of people ecstatic
that the rules have been lifted and now they can spend as much
time as they want ragging on the people they don't like, the ones
not cool enough to be in their club? Only on FFL, and GLEE.

  Do you really believe that things would be boring if everyone
meditated?

 Things would be exactly the same if everyone meditated. Look
 at this place, look at the TMO. I think the point is that *if*
 you got your dreamed of AoE you wouldn't have any of the fun,
 rows and scandals that seem such a motiff around here and in
 the wider movement.

  I mean, I'd expect fewer crimes and such, but look at the famous
people who have been meditating for 40 years: are they boring?

 The only one I can think of is Lynch and I would definitely
 say his career has been sinking to ever more anodyne lows
 as the years go by. The rest of the long termers, Bevan etc,
 don't strike me as embodying any values I would have associated
 with enlightenment before I actually knew what the score was.

 I suspect you have an idea of what the AoE would be like but keep
 getting it confused with mundane reality. That's the TMOs bad, it
 keeps up the myth of a perfect life for all but has yet to deliver
 even a glimpse for us to get excited over, seems like it's all
 dogma to me - get the east facing house, eat the right food, pay
 for the yagyas, get to the dome twice a day and voila! Or not...

  Creating a situation where you operate at lower stress-levels
shouldn't make a lick of difference as to how interesting or
uninteresting people find you unless it is the self-destructive impulses
due to stress that people are finding interesting.

 This is often the way with music and art. And war has always
 been the biggest motivator of industry, do you think we would
 have got to the moon without the Rusky threat, no chance. Forget
 Mars, and Jeebus, in what way would people spending 4 hours a day
 in the dome make them more likely to build huge rockets. It gives
 you *less* time to do stuff, the accomplish more thing is a joke
 isn't it?

  DO you think that the existence of crime and war in the world make
the world a more interesting place to live? What if we used those same
resources to go to Mars or devise a better educational system, or a
better Internet?
 
  Wouldn't the world be at least as interesting in that situation?

 It would be interesting to live in a fantasy world yes. But I don't
 see any great discoveries coming from meditators, unless I missed
 something, I think TM - fundamentally - don't do jack shit, you are
either a great thinker to start with, or you aren't.

 Would Einstein have discovered things quicker if he spent 20x20 in
 a trance? We'll never know but we can be sure that if he got
brainwashed by the reesh he would have made as many wild unprovable and
speculative claims about physics as certain other scientists
 I could mention. 50 years of meditation has failed *utterly* in this
regard. Hagelin has *not* finished Einstein's work.

of posting every day, or almost every day.   FFL will last a week being 
deprived of your posts, important as they are to the mix.

Emily, it sounds like you equate posting out with spontaneity, freedom, 
passion, creativity, not being stodgy, throwing caution to the wind,  and 
giving others the opportunity to miss one. Whew! I haven't realized what I've 
been deprived of by not posting out. And depriving others as well! Of course 
for Judy this time, it was simply that she miscalculated her post amount. Go 
figure!

BTW, I've only been on FFL 14 months, not year after year!

As for blessing, FFL posters bless me way more than I could ever repay. They 
make me laugh and keep me informed about current events. They tell me about 
cool high tech stuff and share beautiful music. They post great photos from all 
over the world and give me great info about ayurveda and jyotish. They alert me 
to TV and movies and books and food I might enjoy. They got me interested again 
in politics. They write wonderfully. They make me think. They push my buttons. 
They make me laugh.
As some here say, deep bow (-:

I'm not sure what posting on FFL has to do with enlightenment, but feel free 
to describe it for me/us.  I can tell you miss those who post out when they/we 
do, what with all the focus and attention you bring to this topic again and 
again and again.  Control is overrated in my opinion - take Share who thinks in 
terms of 7 a day - how important is it that she make sure the forum is blessed 
with her presence, and that you make sure of the same, every day all year long, 
year after year.  I say, old chap, show us some passion, throw caution to the 
wind every once in awhile, show us a little spontaneity, post out just once - 
for the freedom, Barry (and Share), the freedom.  Don't be stodgy; get creative 
and run with it.  I will miss you and your predictability terribly; I will miss 
Share's insights on just about everything.  Come on, now, I dare you.  Share, 
see how far you
 can get past 50 (maybe even to 70 if you're fast) before Alex shuts you down.  
Give FFL an opportunity to miss you.  :) :)

Just for fun, and because I've been trying to learn
a new scripting language, I wrote a script that found
posts by Alex containing the subject title Post Count
and then scanned them for people who have been consigned
one or more times to the Overposter's Bench.

The results are fascinating, and to everyone's surprise,
the winner in this Ain't Got No Self Control Contest
is *not* Judy. It's the guy who claims to be enlightened.

In the following list, the name of the poster is followed
by the rough (I am still learning this scripting language,
so the count could be a little off) number of weeks they
have spent sitting on the Overposter's Bench. 

The grand total is revealing in terms of self control.
A cumulative total of *50 weeks* have been spent by 
the Overposter's, sitting there twiddling their thumbs
(or whatever else they twiddle), wishing that they
could be here still posting away. 

If they had had more self-control, they would have been.
There is really no other way to see it.

Thank you Share - excellent post.  Midway is the recipient of much debris in 
the Pacific Garbage Patch.  

On a backpacking trip a couple of years ago to a stretch along the northern 
coast of Washington, I became outraged at the number of plastic water bottles 
littering the beach.  I filled up a large garbage sack (also plastic) within a 
short time and trucked it out; interestingly, I talked to everyone I saw (it 
was a holiday weekend so there were more people than usual) about grabbing an 
extra bottle or two on their way out, but only 2 people seemed receptive to the 
idea.  I do not walk my talk yet, in the sense that I purchase many things in 
plastic, or with plastic parts, but this is a horrifying reality.

Share, Share - I once recommended a book called something like Healing Family 
Shame (I can't even remember it was so long ago) to someone who asked the same 
questions you do below and they said...you are shaming me.  Isn't that funny? 
 Did I hit a nerve?  You are the one that said on this forum, if I recollect 
correctly, that you had issues with food - addiction to the health food and 
wellness industry often covers for more serious ailments of the personality, 
etc.  Anyhow, I'm not diagnosing you - that's your job.

Emily, once again it seems you haven't read my post. My first ques: how do we 
help ourselves and others grow without shaming. And I disagree: I think we can 
help others even before we ourselves are completely healed. I also disagree 
with you when you say that I haven't shown a difference in behavior. I think I 
have done just that with several here on FFL. 


I've never had bulimia or anorexia so don't think of myself as having had an 
eating disorder. Finally, I'm sure that most of us have some lack of self love.

Share, from the Huffington Post.  You may like this - remember that eating 
disorders are inherently about self-hate, so if you ever had one and didn't 
deal with it, it and all the attendant emotions are there with you also, 
buried.  As always, check yourself and your own behavior and clean up your side 
of the street - it's unlikely you are qualified or capable of helping others 
- that term means nothing - particularly in that you have zero credibility with 
those that know  you haven't cleaned up your side of the street or haven't 
shown a difference in behavior.  (and don't assume I'm talking about your 
behavior here with me - I'm not that invested in it, I assure you).  Talk is 
cheap.

 behavior while nurturing healthy self esteem?How do we tell ourselves and 
 others that a behavior is unacceptable but the person is accepted?
 
 It's difficult because we've all been shamed and thus we've all become 
 shamers.
 
 
 FFL parents, but also others, I would really like to know how you have dealt 
 with this dilemma.
 
 IMLE (in my limited experience) shaming gives rise to counter shaming and 
 worse: more harmful behavior. 
 
 
 And I'm not saying that we should treat child molesters, serial killers, etc. 
 only by building their self esteem! Obviously such people need to be 
 quarantined until they are healthy. I don't know all the answers for dealing 
 with such extreme cases, but I'm pretty sure that no destructive or harmful 
 behavior is going to stop if the person is continually subjected to shaming.
 
 
 Whether it be the obvious shaming of moralistic approaches or the less 
 obvious but more insidious, IMHO, shaming that ridicules a person for their 
 enjoyments, enthusiasms and sexuality, shaming is an attempt to control and 
 or harm someone's life force and spiritual energy.
