Reflections in a Petri Dish | Materialism Fever; World Pandemic

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

It’s no accident that Dog is God Spelled backwards.

Is the world as wicked as it seems to me to be? Some of us long for sanctuary and surely succor too. It’s one thing to be ‘involved’ with the world. Then you’re not troubled by this weltschmerz and the strange and occasional angst that comes to one who is no longer capable of being involved with the world. Woke up at 1:30 AM. It keeps getting earlier. One of these days it will be yesterday, just like that, or that tomorrow that never comes but somehow, it finally does and you’re finally ahead of the game or out of the game.

Does the world actually chew people up and spit them out? It seems like it does. It’s a big world; something like seven billion people. I find it hard to get my head around that number. I look at it but it just bounces from zero to zero, like one of those balls that set the timing for lyrics on a kid’s TV show. There’s this place called Indonesia. A whole lot of people live there. I don’t know any of them. I don’t know what goes on there. I heard about a place called Timor where some bad things happened. It’s like a dream, or a nightmare if you happened to be there. I suppose this is more of the world doing its laundry, here in The Kali Yuga. It’s been laundry day, every day, for a long time; wash, rinse, spin, repeat cycle, repeat cycle. Seven billion people would not be here for no reason. This is simple logic but the vast majority of the residents of this world are unable to put this together in their heads because they have a fever. There is a fever pandemic that holds the world in thralldom. It’s Materialism fever.

Materialism fever is a complex thing. It’s not just a fascination with the external world, to the exclusion of virtues and pursuits that apply to states of being that are possible when the fever has gone into remission. What it does is to color ones thoughts and emotions and this affects the manner in which one sees and hears. It affects the value given to every experience. It affects the types of experiences that are sought out. This contagion is massively amplified by its presence in the group mind. It creates a hive mind which can be very difficult to break away from the influence of.

A Ukrainian’s Letter to John Kerry – Russia Insider

I am a citizen of Ukraine – a poor country, located in Eastern Europe. They say that George Bush Jr. couldn’t find it on the map. Maybe that’s why the war here began only now, after Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and other countries were freed from authoritarianism and to which the great USA brought democracy and prosperity.

But our time has now come. Desperate Ukraine is becoming more and more like the good old USA of your youth – the USA of Senator Joseph McCarty, Dr. Strangelove and the war in Vietnam. Our economy is in deep crisis, the Euromaidan ‘reforms’ are bringing catastrophic success, and the army is heroically retreating before the enemy.

You don’t seem to trust those Germans much, but their intelligence claims that during the Ukrainian civil conflict there have been already some 50,000 casualties. Mainly, these have been civilians. If you recall, this all began with the deaths of some dozens of Ukrainians from sniper fire in Kiev’s Maidan Square, under circumstances still unknown to this very day. This happened a year ago, when you supported the coup in Kiev in order to exchange the regime of a corrupted president for one of mindless politicians that are just as thievish, but much more bloodthirsty and obedient to you. They are now savoring lunches with you at summit meetings, each time asking for loans and weapons to proceed with the war that you call a “struggle for freedom.”

Your leading TV channel CNN, in plain English, calls Ukrainian troops “pro-American forces,” while a minister from your country is skilfully managing our deteriorating economy, thus reinforcing Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and honor.

Our “democratic” politicians have mastered the art of turning blood into money, lessons of which you constantly provide to the world. Recently they announced a fourth wave of military conscription in Ukraine. Surprisingly, it turns out that many people, burdened by the ‘slavish past of communist tyranny’, stubbornly refuse to die and kill their kin from the Donbas region. They refuse to do this even in the name of such fundamental values as those which personally benefit your friends in the Ukrainian government and the national interests of your country.

Are Conspiracy Theorists Nuts? Washington’s Blog

Conspiracy Theorists USED TO Be Accepted As Normal

Democracy and free market capitalism were founded on conspiracy theories.

The Magna Carta, the Constitution and Declaration of Independence and other founding Western documents were based on conspiracy theories. Greek democracy and free market capitalism were also based on conspiracy theories.

But those were the bad old days …Things have now changed.

The CIA Coined the Term Conspiracy Theorist In 1967

That all changed in the 1960s.

Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories. The dispatch was marked “psych” – short for “psychological operations” or disinformation – and “CS” for the CIA’s “Clandestine Services” unit.

The dispatch was produced in responses to a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Times in 1976.

Dog Poet Transposing…….
“Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail.”
Four in the morning. This part of the world sleeps. Then again, they sleep everywhere but… with the exception of few things, not forever. It’s coming folks. We’ve been talking about it for awhile. Yes indeedy, Mother McCreedy! We’ve been talking about that here for some time. We’ve been talking about Mr. Apocalypse and his walking stick. We’ve been talking about the the march of programmed circumstance that leads, inevitably, to the sum total of itself. Programmed how? The taste and virtue of a soup is determined by its contents and the process of its manufacture. It tastes like what it is. Because of planetary interplay, the forces expressing themselves in and us, manifest accordingly. Think of this interplay as the vibrationary soundtrack for the time. It goes through movements, just like a symphony. Music is something you feel. I give it an 88 cause it has a good beat and you can dance to it; intended for humor and irony, not truth. I do not equate Dick Clark with Soren Kierkegaard.
Today, as a posting companion, we are watching a steaming pile of catshit called, Jupiter Ascending. It’s a little like one of those contemporary fashion shows but with a little less depth. I have no idea what is supposed to be going on. I’m being told a few things but as for cohesion, it’s like when you buy inferior duct tape. It’s a lot like our society at the moment; mindless and without purpose; vanity paramount above dignity and believe me, what suffers most from vanity is dignity. They seem to have discovered the secret of eternal youth but… really, would such a thing be conferred on beings like these? Of course, there are the token lizard creatures, which the controllers of the medium have, I think, patterned after themselves and they don’t want you to ever forget them either. They’re saying the American public is furious over the QVC Queen’s exclusion from the Oscar memorials but… the comments don’t say that at all; not even close. This is a phenomenon that has become more and more a dominating aspect of the culture; Rupert Murdoch leads the field with that. Just put out a sensational headline. The story following doesn’t have to reflect it at all.

McDonald’s and Monsanto Are Both ‘Losing Money Fast’ | Natural Society

by Anthony Gucciardi

Posted on February 22, 2015

In a series of headlines that would pass as virtually unbelievable several years ago, mainstream economists are sounding the alarm over the financial decline of both fast food giant McDonald’s and biotech juggernaut Monsanto.

CNN asks, ‘Is McDonald’s doomed?’ Business Insider declares that ‘McDonald’s Is Losing America’ as the company fires its own CEO. What’s happening? As it turns out, the world is starting to ask what they’re truly eating in their food — and the new conglomerate of natural grocers and restaurants are trailblazing the way into an entirely new economic environment. In other words: people are simply tired of shoveling garbage into their bodies, and they’re not going to put up with it anymore.

So are you surprised to find that many are turning away from fast food leaders like McDonald’s?

Nations around the world are already rejecting the ensemble of artificial ingredients included in many staple McDonald’s meal options. Back in 2013, their attempts to expand operations in Bolivia were completely shut down by the reality that the Bolivian citizens were not willing to purchase their fast food creations. As reported back in July of 2013:

“McDonald’s restaurants operated in Bolivia for 14 years, according to Hispanically Speaking. In 2002, they had to shutter their final remaining 8 stores because they simply couldn’t turn a profit—and if you know fast food companies, you know it’s not because they didn’t try.

Visible Origami | The Age of the Rage of the Iridescent Peacock Ego.

Dog Poet Transudating…….

“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.”

Seems like it is the age of the rage of the individual ego. There are a couple of motivators for this and we’ve already had ‘the me generation’, which was followed by the ‘even more me generation’ and most recently we had the, ‘it came from beneath the valley of the me generation’. So maybe this is actually the, ‘return to the valley of the me generation’. That’s neither here nor there, well… actually it’s there and we’re here and my reasoning, such as it is and imperfect as it is, is that, of course, Materialism is the first cause, because Materialism is that hot environment that inflames the ego, bringing it to the ‘tinder dry’ state. You throw in the press of near 7 billion souls all agitating for survival and a sense of self in the dense and cluttered press of all those bodies and plastic identities in search of a net worth persona and then… you factor in that this is the digital information age… toss in all that social networking and endless evolution of devices to that end and you got hundreds of millions of horny thumbs going at it like randy goats in search of high performance numbers and recognition points and you got what we now got in surround sound and panorama view. Ahrooooooooooo!

The most unfortunate aspect of this situation is the nature of the self that the theater of Materialism demands from the players. Even if you were initially of a spiritual inclination, the requirements for presentation have a tendency to distort and pervert original intent; should the original intent have been authentic which, most of the time, it ain’t… your chances, short of sincere Bhakti and perpetual surrender to the point where it is acknowledged… are not good. You got to put on some kind of outfit, whether it be ocher, other colored robes, or a white suit like you were the Tom Wolfe of the evangelical lecture circuit… with dreams of a Las Vegas invite to the international convention of snake oil professionals. You can enthral the crowd with your version of A Curse of Miracles and maybe not even have to be sexually aberrant or commit suicide as a denouement. Then again, you may have already dropped by one of those CIA Starbuck type franchises, where they hand out plagiarized systems of condensed and simplified philosophies that are tailor made for that growth industry that caters to whatever permutation of ‘ME’ phase we are passing through at the moment. If that’s the case then maybe you are now all dressed up with somewhere to go.
