Senor Raul,

Your last message was very deep. There are very few people who are as knowledgeable about the dark side of the human history as you are.Here, many people are dying due to the virus but it does not matter- far more are being born every single day simultaneously.

I mentioned the book by Joyce because the book was surreal and depicts what is called Stream of Consciousness.I am not a stranger to panic attacks, what I do is, I don’t try to fight it, I try to observe it as if it were taking place in another man.

I am very happy that you write here on this message board for I get to learn a lot of things from your messages. I do fall asleep but I get the most weird dreams one could possibly imagine.Speaking of strange dreams, one of my favourite authors is Philip K. Dick.

He experimented with drugs when he was young and because of that or because of some other reasons he started to develop the belief, like Descartes, that the world we see around us is a mirage and that the Roman Empire still very much exists in the form the Roman Catholic Church and that it has all been conjured up by a deceiving demon.

Please take care.

Holden,

Thank you for your message. Here the number of infected people is increasing if we are to believe what the Ministry of Health informs. But I know, as you say, many babies are being born every single day. If the authorities really want people to be afraid of the CCP virus, then they should let people take a look at the bodies in the morgue if they do not infect.

Last week I caught a cold and one of my neighbors realizing that he is very afraid of being near me. 

Why did the creators of this laboratory come up with the idea of turning a hominid into a sentient human? Why insert a spark of intelligence on the homo sapiens? Maybe millions of years ago our consciousness, as some say, started with a pandemic. I heard Javier Sierra, a Spanish researcher, say that in South Africa fossil remains of bacteria were found. Their age is 3.8 billion years. It is near the 4 billion years when life started on this Earth. In his view life started out of this planet and that life permeates the entire universe so we, humans, are the result of this infection, so to speak.

My knowledge of our dark side is limited, I admit. I would have to be in Tacumbú, the state prison, to meet my sad and bitter fellow human prisoners to have at least of glimpse of the wretched misery of our human condition.

If I end up one of these days as a beggar on a wheelchair, what would happen? Will they spit at me, stab me or put a bullet in my head? Nonetheless, I will end up as food for the worms.Most stay away from beggars. I suppose they are afraid of becoming one of them.

I do not forget these thugs in power who are orchestrating this virus madness. What these people are doing is eugenics, in my view. I am sure they are applauding what is happening in this planet. Weeding out the so-called unfit is clearly the purpose.

We look so ridiculous wearing these face masks. These thugs in power must have thought this out very carefully since Earth is a laboratory for human behavior. To them we are a plague worthy of eliminating.

I have just heard that in Serbia people took to the streets against the president because this guy wanted to extend the lockdown. So he had to back down. I am afraid this is only a temporary measure. Here the Paraguayan congress will declare the use of face masks mandatory and if someone is caught breaking the law people will be fined with the purchase of 5 face masks plus a fine of around 90 dollars. Business is business.

Yes, as Joyce mentions, the world around is a mirage. The Roman Empire still exists in the form of laws specially and the Catholic Church inherited the customs, traditions and the laws from Rome. I agree. This world has been conjured up by thousands and thousands of deceiving demons.

Please take a look at stoicworkshop.com. You and the readers of this blog may find the quotes interesting.
I quote the following:

“Always reflect that soon you will be no one, and nowhere. “ Marcus Aurelius

“In short, know this: Human lives are brief and trivial. Yesterday, a blob of semen; tomorrow embalming fluid, ash.”  Marcus Aurelius

Stay safe.

To Senor Raul from John the Savage
« Reply #32 on: July 13, 2020, 03:24:22 pm »
Senor Raul,

Thanks for the message.I always look forward to reading your messages.Well,you know not just English but also Spanish which is one of the most important languages. I wish I knew Spanish too, but I am afraid the society leaves me with no time for such pursuits.

My society is a lot like Huxley’s The Brave New World. And I am John the Savage.

Here people try to use different drugs as Soma to forget all their troubles but it does not work in the long run.The demons will devour them all eventually. Sex is as common place as it is in the book.Everyone thinks, in the book, that it is the Savage who would have the most sex but he is the most chaste of them all.To them he is a sentimental fool.

In the book there is a very rigid hierarchy system,they have the top administrators, the worker bees and so on and so forth and its the same here.

I think very soon people might reproduce only by way of test tubes and there will be no place for the kind of “frivolous things” that I tend to write here. It would all be considered as a wastage of computer memory.
Well, I’d rather be the savage than become civilised like these folks chasing the next skirt, the next promotion and the next overseas vacation.

Please take care of yourself. I hope your health gets better and that you have enough resources to at least live a life of basic comforts.

PS: Loved that Aurelius quote.Thanks.

Procession of Verges - Dance of Death
« Reply #33 on: July 14, 2020, 07:27:07 am »
Holden,

I hope you are not having problems with your medication. I wish I could speak German. I would have been able to read many authors like Herman Hesse, Stefan Zweig, Thomas Mann, and others in the original language.
Bear in mind that from now on that you and people like you who dare to think and utter forbidden thoughts have become a highly endangered species.

Those who do not have jobs, careers, prospects, will be viewed as a burden to society, unworthy of living, etc. It has happened before, is happening now and it will continue to happen.

I agree with you that in a near future people will reproduce only by way of tubes. I remember many years ago when I heard that in 1978 Louise Joy Brown was the first to be conceived via in vitro fertilization in Manchester, England. Later her sister was born the same way. In 2006 Louise gave birth to a baby boy but in the natural way. With cloning technology things must have changed a lot specially for military purpses. I heard that many couples go to special clinics that deal with specialize in the use of hormones. 

Nevertheless, women will still decide to give birth to babies. We are part of an infection called life and life is doomed to continue to multiply in this unverse. This is nothing new. 

The title of my post is Procession of Verges - Dance of Death. Verges is located in Girona, Catalonia in Spain. The town is famous for its Dansa de la Mort or Dance of Death in Catalan. They are celebrated every Holy Week and it has been performed since the Middle Ages. The dances of death became popular after the Black Death. The authorities made these Grim Reapers dance to remind everyone in town that sooner or later all of us will be dancing to its tune. It is done every Holy Week as part of the cortege that Jesus made on his way to Golgotha after leaving Pontius Pilate´s palace. It reminds us that we are all skeletons on our way to the cemetery. When the plague ceased the survivors organized this dance of skeletons so they won´t forget it but in these modern times it has become a popular festivity.

By the way I learned that quarantine was the term used in Venice.They used that word because the authorities were desperate before the advance of the plague. They were inspired by the struggle that Jesus fought against the devil during forty nights and forty days. They first isolated houses, ships and whole populations. The sick did not receive any treatment, the dead fell without anyone burying them. It meant surrendering all these territories to Satan itself.

Stay well.

Propaganda
« Reply #34 on: July 15, 2020, 03:58:26 am »
to senor Raul,

I've just downloaded the "Propaganda" book (http://whale.to/b/bernays.pdf) and from the index and the first page i read, I remembered your favorite farm analogy.

Quote from: bernays
THE conscious  and  intelligent  manipulation  of  the  organized   habits   and   opinions   of   the   masses   is   an   important  element  in  democratic  society.  Those  who  manipulate  this  unseen  mechanism  of  society  constitute  an  invisible  government  which  is  the  true  ruling  power of our country.

yes yes "democratic society" is a the magic word to do whatever you like like killing millions for oil and sugarcoat it with "democracy". damn democracy, plain old dictatorship is more sincere at this stage.

Bernays was Freud nephew and from Wikipedia page he is deep down with the intelligence as usual.

Quote from: Wikipedia
Edward Louis Bernays (/bərˈneɪz/; German: [bɛɐ̯ˈnaɪs]; November 22, 1891 − March 9, 1995) was an Austrian-American pioneer in the field of public relations and propaganda, referred to in his obituary as "the father of public relations".[3] Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life.[4] He was the subject of a full length biography by Larry Tye called The Father of Spin (1999) and later an award-winning 2002 documentary for the BBC by Adam Curtis called The Century of the Self.

His best-known campaigns include a 1929 effort to promote female smoking by branding cigarettes as feminist "Torches of Freedom" and his work for the United Fruit Company connected with the CIA-orchestrated overthrow of the democratically elected Guatemalan government in 1954. He worked for dozens of major American corporations including Procter & Gamble and General Electric, and for government agencies, politicians, and non-profit organizations

I didn't read much of the book, but i think it is a great book if we removed the hypocritical tongue-in-cheek words such democracy, social justice, education, etc. it shows the human as they really are, a cattle. I think humans can't be even likened to wild animals, we mere cattle.

a fun fact: CEO and co-founder of Netflix is Bernays' nephew.

hang on there Senor, the s-h-i-t yet to hit the fan. I wanna see when the masses see what they really are. sadly they act in denial every single time.

Have a good day
Suffering is the only fruit of human race

Senor Raul,


Dance of Death.Danse Macabre. That phrase reminds me of the institution of marriage.Anna Karenina is a great book by Tolstoy. If one wishes to learn the true nature of the WOMAN, that is the place. Anna is married to an aristocrat who is noble and kind and provides for her in every possible way. She is having every kind of luxury available and they even have a child together.

And what does she do?She goes right ahead and has an affair with an army officer and even, makes a baby with him while still being married to her husband.
These days they look down upon those who read the classics ,I don’t care, they teach me a great deal. Lord Russell once said he was never much into reading the classics,well, its obvious once one looks at his tattered love life.

Tolstoy destroys all the illusions one might have about women,one sentence at a time.

I have no doubt in my mind that had I not come across books like these , and would have made the mistake of getting married, my wife would have turned me into a card-carrying cuckold.

I was telling you about Ulysses, well, in that book ,whenever the lover of his wife comes to his house to sleep with her,Leopold Bloom, asks the lover if he should use room spray to freshen up the air..I am not sure if he imagines that or this scene really takes place. The book ,like I said, is complicated.

I get my medicines using a e-pharmacy website. So far ,so good.

Take care.

Ibra,

Thank you for your most interesting post. I hope you and your family are allright. You write many illuminating comments.

Holden says that my knowledge of history is vast. No, it is not. I am just an aficionado. In Spanish we have a word aficionado when someone is not a professional. The word amateur in English would be its equivalent. I am an aficionado in historic events. Here many ridicule me, mock me or laugh at me when I sometimes recall historic issues or events.
They say it is a waste of time. I understand their view. They have wives and children and the maintenance is their concern and I do not have wives and children. To the establishment/system I am a nonentity.

Indeed I heard of Edward Bernays. He is considered to be one of the masterminds in the use of campaign advertising/political campaigns. I read that in the U.S. in the 1920s it was taboo for women to smoke in public. George Hill, president of the American Tobacco Company hired him to persuade women to start smoking. So he sent groups of women to light Lucky Strike cigarettes in front of the photographers in a parade in New York City in April 1929. For the feminists smoking cigarretes was lighting torches of freedom, so they said. This is where all started. And he worked for the United Fruit Company to remove Jacobo Arbenz, the Guatemalan president who was an obstacle in 1954. The corporation had a lot of power in Central America and the words banana republics began to be used since that time.

Bernays reminds me of those documentaries about the Nazis and their use of propaganda. Dr. Josef Goebbels was truly a diabolical genius. He is the one who coined that expression iron curtain meaning that whole countries would fall under the control of the Soviet Union. Those who know say that for Goebbels the most effective propaganda did not use lies all the time. He understood that there are half truths, limited truths and truths out of context.

Two of my favorite Goebbels´s quotes are:

“A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth”.

 “Work is not mankind´s curse, but his blessing. A man becomes man through labor. It elevates him, makes him great and aware, raises him above all other creatures.”

It is extremely difficult to acknowledge that we are subject to manipulation, deception and control from the moment we come to this world.  We live in this part of the world under a costume democracy. Well, in my view, Nazism, communism and democracy are labels to control the modern human caged primates living in these overcrowded cities.  We consume, breed, multiply and infest.  And now we are paying the consequences because the Chinese manmade pestilence was launched against millions living in these overcrowded cages.

I wonder, Ibra, if the masses will see what they really are and as you say they act in denial every single time. Humans are very resilient creatures. I heard a sociologist, talking about the mob, say that “whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”
We are rats in a laboratory. Let us see how much punishment we can endure and accept without resorting to rebellion.

Stay safe.

Senor Raul,

When I was in the first flush of the youth very few authors could echo the intensity of the agony that I felt. One author whom I found to be like minded was Tennessee Williams.My God he could write some very sad tales. i remember once, many years back, when I was working in a hotel and there was a city wide strike. There were no buses or trains to go around so all the workers were well nigh prisoners in the hotel that day, meaning they could not leave even after their shifts got over.

The owners of the hotel of course loved it and gave the workers more tasks to perform. After my shift got over, they were thinking, I too would stay back ,but no ,oh not not me, I took my bag(which was full of books and magazines) and went on foot for a while, the streets were completely deserted and I was alone, I liked it that way.

Well, I came across a bench and I sat on it,took out a book. It was in that period that I was reading Williams(Circa 2005).  He could write some very sad tales, believe you me.

Street Car called Desire. Well, that's pretty sad. The nice woman ends up going to a mental hospital.
But I am quite sure he wrote some tales which were ever more poignant though i have mostly forgotten them.

Anyway, just wanted to share.

Take care.

Sad scenes in the Warsaw Ghetto - 1942
« Reply #38 on: July 19, 2020, 07:33:22 am »
Holden,

Thank you for your message. I trust you are taking care of your health.

Here when some people tell me to take care of my body because I have diabetes, high blood pressure and weight problems, I just remain quiet. I have already contracted a lethal virus and it is called in Latin tedium vitae. No cure for that.

As for the virus we are zombies hooked to the mass media. It reminds of me of Agent Smith in Matrix and people will defend it with their lives if necessary.

I think that you have become an accomplished writer in the board and if you have saved all the posts, you may publish them under a pen name. Of course there are consequences for going against the current.

You know that the mafia specially in the U.S. and Italy has a very strict code of silence called omerta. One must never speak or squeal in front of the authorities or the police. Those who violate this code are and will be severely punished.
In this world nobody can go against optimism. We must escape from negative thoughts. We must remain in silence or we will suffer a vendetta.

Regarding your experience working in a hotel; what can I say? Work seems good but it is not. If it was good, the hell on Earth that was Auschwitz, the gulags, the laogai in China, the killing fields in Cambodya, would have abolished it; the really bad Nazis, Soviets or Cambodyans would have condemned the prisoners to rest but not to work but the slogan, in this case Auschwitz, the Nazis chose was «Arbeit macht frei» (work sets you free). It was a lie. What can we expect of something so adored by the demons? Evil people do evil things and one of them was to make people work.

Take care.

Senor Raul,

Today my boss humiliated me in the office,not an exceptional things really.But what was new was that instead of answering him back I started to think deeply and to feel the raw emotions of fear and anger.My boss is also a part of the nature,he is not? And so, it makes sense to think that Nature itself wants to cause me grief. Its not him as a person but him as a manifestation of Nature who wants to humiliate me and make me cry in pain.

Today a lot of my peers were promoted and but not me. I do not seek promotions.

Take care.

Mom waking up baby Avery

Holden,

I am sorry to hear that your boss did this unforgiving thing to you. Most would get angry or give him the middle finger behind his back. You are too kind to him. I hope he is able to consider your gesture.

You say you do not seek promotions. That´s allright. You will have, in my view, fewer problems and fewer responsibilities at work.

Although I rant, whine or complain about the misery of our human condition, I like babies. I like the littles ones but at the same time it saddens me that they will have a bleak, gloomy and  bitter future.

Stay safe and sound.

Senor Raul,

The problem with the babies is that they remain babies for not more than 18 years and after that they are adults belonging to the supreme predator species.
Mommy waking up the baby..well the mother woke the baby from its eternal slumber,yes, she is the material cause of all the decades of misery that the baby will have to put up with.But she is not the exclusive cause of the manifestation of the baby.There are other nefarious causes too.

Children are brought forth into the world without a thought about their well being.Children are no innocent angles,they are like wild beasts.I saw the kid of my cousin hitting her with his plastic sword in earnest.

Some babies might look cute some of the time but what about the ugly babies? No one wants to hug them or to play with them.
This existence of ours cursed.Cursed, I tell you.

Take care.

Holden,

Thank you for your response. I trust you are taking care of your health.
Indeed, children, as you say, are brought forth into the world without a thought about their well-being. I suppose that when I see the babies and enjoy their presence I am following my programming.  Babies touch people´s hearts and from a survival point of view their cuteness helps them get food, shelter and protection until they become less vulnerable. I read that there are studies that adults prefer to give a toy or even adopt cute babies.

On ugly babies, well, what can I say?  In this wretched world babies with abnormalities suffer terribly because they are more likely to be physically and mentally abused. This is nothing new. Mothers will respond less because their children are less cute. From time to time I see in the streets men and women who were born with severe physical disabilities. They must have had a bitter, sad and terrible childhood.

Yes, babies will become adults and belong to the supreme predator species called homo sapiens sapiens. I must have looked cute like this baby in the video to my parents. But now in thoughts, at least, I am no different from my psychopathic fellow human beings. Babies grow up and hurt people in time. I know because I have hurt people too. There are times I imagine myself kicking some of neighbors from the bus and hear the sound of the tires crushing their skulls. Is it wrong to feel this way? It is indeed but sometimes I don´t really care. To the so-called polite society just for admitting this sad fact many would like to put me, if I were born in India, in Lumbini Park Mental Hospital.

In reality it would have been better not to have been born.

Stay safe.

P.S. You and the readers of this blog may find this article interesting.

Senor Raul,

It’s raining and it’s the middle of the night. I like this kind of atmosphere -it makes me feel as if the ends of days is here. If you like babies then you would love India for its full of babies.
People dump new born babies in the trash can here as they have no money to feed them.A cat that lives in this building has given birth to five kittens.When I saw them, two of them were playing together, two were being feed milk by the mother-cat and one was sleeping. Nice scene.

Only the same cat had given birth to another set of four kittens only a few months back and in all probability they are dead now already. There is no love.Emotions and feeling are mechanical too.
Some one treats me nicely,I like him. Someone mistreats me, I hate him. Its all mechanical.
Tears are mechanical too.

You have often spoken about the Gnostic religion,well, Philip K.Dick .the writer,was into that a great deal too.
Maybe we are just machines,that feel pain and weep. The idea is to destroy the assembly line itself.

Take care.

I`m Nobody - Who are you?
« Reply #44 on: July 27, 2020, 06:32:31 am »
Holden,

Thank you for your patience in reading my scribblings.

I am fond of babies only from far away. I am not so sociable as to take care of even one of them. I read that psychologists say we must be biologically programmed to love them. They say that humans seek to nurture and protect infants even if we have never seen a baby before.

I have read only very basic things about the Gnostics. In Gnosticism we have the duality of spirit and matter. The world and the flesh are evil and they are in opposition to God. The final purpose in life, in their view, is liberation from matter. The Gnostics believe that the spirit is in bondage to the flesh in this life. Wine and meat are forbidden, and marriage is a licensed fornication. In their view, Jehovah is not the true god but a demiurge. Jehovah is perverse, jealous, and evil. This world soaked in crime and blood is the work of Jehovah.

Sex is mechanical. We are in heat 24/7/365. We only think of copulating. The older we get the more we think of sex.
I see a father and his son selling fruits in the street. Does he ever think of his son´s future? I think not. What is the father going to tell him about wearing a face mask for at least 2 or 3 years? We are zombies following our programming. We are the property of those who made our minds and bodies. 

I read a little about the Desert Fathers. For them solitude was not merely an escape from distractions; it was a teaching presence. There are many stories about these hermits and one of them is the following:

“An abbot, head of two hundred monks, had a great reputation in the world and Christ decided to visit him. He approached the porter in the guise of an old and poor man and asked for an audience. The abbot was in conversation when the porter approached him and said he was too busy to see the old man. So Christ waited patiently at the door. At about five o’clock in the afternoon, a rich man arrived and the porter hastened to announce him. The abbot came to the door to greet him and Christ humbly approached saying: ‘I wish to speak with you, Father Abbot.’ But the abbot did not even reply, but pushed the old man aside and ushered in the rich man to a welcoming feast.
After the meal, the abbot escorted his visitor to the gate and said his farewell then turned and went back inside, forgetting the patient old man who stood there waiting to speak with him.
As night fell, Christ showed himself to the porter and said: ‘Say to the abbot: “If you want worldly glory, then because of your past good deeds and the way you have lived I will send to you visitors from the four corners of the earth to flatter and be flattered by you. But as for the riches of my kingdom, you shall not taste them.”

Stay well.
