25 Sept 2018 Bowls, Caterpillars and Drawing

Just a reminder, the dividing by 2 came to me when the system initially did.  It’s like analyzing something with both parts of ourselves, the light and shadow.  It’s the duality of human nature.  We are basically two parts stitched together inside and out if you think about it!  Most things that come into our lives go under some sort of scrutiny and or analysis before we accept the person, place or thing as “truth” or worthy of being part of our life.   It seems a rare thing when a person, other life form, place or thing is exactly how it seems to appear.   What we call things today aren’t always the names that were used in the past.  In this list you will see the difference in value between dirt and soil.  Dirt in the numbers has the same value as a camera even though it has the same purpose of soil.

The “3 cycle” represents to me the cycles of life, death and rebirth.  The “9 cycle” represents difficult to me or something is hard, sturdy or tough.  It’s rather incredible to see what numbers can tell us about the meaning and possible intent of why things were given the labels they were.  As I’ve done this for my personal list, you can see how dated some words are compared to others.  It’s pretty fascinating!  (To me at least!)  If you have a question about any of this, please leave me a comment.  Thank you for stopping by!

What is Orgone?

The word orgonite comes from “orgone”, the name given by Wilhelm Reich to vital energy found everywhere in nature. It is life energy, also called Ch’i, Prana, and Aether. This vital energy exists, in a natural way, under many different forms. It can be neutral (OR=orgone), positive (POR=positive orgone energy) or negative (DOR = deadly orgone energy). When positive, it enables living organisms to exist in a healthy state. Reich did a lot of research on the properties and behaviors of this energy. He built an orgone accumulator out of alternate layers of metal and organic material. He also observed that OR was able to neutralize nuclear radiation.

24 Sept 2018 Word, Number, Language and Kicking Your Own Ass

Hello to you.  How are you?  I’m pretty tired.  Last night Link jumped off the bed in the middle of the night like he does sometimes and in the process of trying to collect him in the dark living room, I beat the crap out of myself on the corner of my computer chair lol!  Gave myself some purple and red eyeshadow on one eye!  Sigh.  Later this morning I hurt my foot on a doorstop.  We were afraid for me to continue baking bread lol.  With the way things have been going I’d end up with mutant bread dough that would turn into a face hugger from Aliens!

I couldn’t help myself and had to see what the numeric value of kicking your own ass was and got a pleasant surprise.  I’ve been a “friend of Bill” before too!  If you have been in a support group of any kind, you know the process involves others besides just yourself.  This explains the AA values but what is going on with the kicking of one’s own ass?!  Well the two parts of yourself aren’t working together and one side is doing the kicking of the ass and the other side is on the receiving end.  In my case, my mind and my body not communicating!  My mind doesn’t seem to understand there is a body attached to it sometimes!

I was curious to see the purpose of the foundations of how we communicate in this world – words, numbers and language.  Some interesting results! It seems from what I’ve been able to gather through my journey with this that words have to go through a test.  The questions I stumbled on to seem to be the questions or pretty close to the questions the makers of words had to ask themselves when considering naming something.

Information for those unfamiliar with ovarian cysts etc.  The first one I had removed wasn’t until after many years of having it.  I always had trouble with my cycles but some were so bad I’d get suicidal during them.  I had a dream of something being taken out of my stomach so it would finally be flat.  I told my therapist about this dream and she suggested I go and talk to a doctor.  They found a huge cyst inside of me and I had surgery to remove it.  I was terrified!  Thankfully it wasn’t cancerous.  A year later I had another one show up and that’s when we decided to undergo the hysterectomy.

Uterine Fibroids, Endometrial Polyps and Ovarian Cysts

Quick look at uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps and ovarian cysts

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous muscle growths within the walls of the uterus.

Endometrial polyps are abnormal tissue growths within the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus.

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs on one or both ovaries that usually form during ovulation.

Symptoms of fibroids, polyps and cysts vary, but these structural abnormalities can all contribute to pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding and other complications including infertility.

Treatment for fibroids, polyps and cysts depends on symptoms and patient goals and includes conservative, nonsurgical methods as well as surgical intervention when necessary.

Uterine fibroids

Uterine fibroids, which are also called leiomyomas or myomas, are benign (noncancerous) muscular growths within the walls of the uterus. In fewer than 1 in 1,000 cases, what was thought to be a uterine fibroid may be a cancerous mass. They range in size from ¾ inch to several inches in diameter.

According to a study published in The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, fibroids affect up to 70 percent of white women and between 80 to 90 percent of African-American women by age 50. They often do not cause any symptoms and are frequently detected incidentally during a routine examination.

Symptoms of uterine fibroids

Fibroids often cause heavy and painful periods, abnormal uterine bleeding, and pelvic pain and pressure in patients. In addition to discomfort, fibroids may also cause pregnancy complications and/or infertility. Symptoms of uterine fibroids include:

  • Changes in the menstrual cycle, including heavy or prolonged bleeding
  • Abdominal and pelvic cramping
  • Lower back pain
  • Pain or pressure during intercourse
  • Frequent or difficult urination
  • Recurrent miscarriages
  • Infertility.

If fibroids are suspected or discovered in a routine pelvic exam, an OB-GYN will first aim to fully assess their size, number and position. This can be done using a variety of imaging methods including ultrasound and hysteroscopy (a thin tube with a camera inserted through the vagina to examine the uterus).

More advanced imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and computerized tomography (CT) scans may be ordered in more complex cases.

Uterine fibroids treatment

Determining the appropriate treatment for fibroids depends on several variables including severity and type of symptoms, to what degree the fibroids are affecting the body’s ability to function normally, and whether or not a woman wishes to get pregnant in the future.

Over-the-counter pain medication can sometimes relieve uterine fibroid symptoms. Hormonal medications, including certain birth control medications, can be very effective in reducing the pain and heavy bleeding caused by fibroids, provided the woman does not wish to become pregnant.

Women who are actively trying to get pregnant or wish to preserve their future reproductive options may opt to have fibroids surgically removed while leaving the uterus intact. Surgical removal of the fibroids alone is called a myomectomy.

Other options for fibroid removal include uterine artery embolization (UAE), a procedure that eliminates blood vessels that supply the fibroids, and MRI-focused ultrasound therapy that is a nonsurgical technique using high-intensity ultrasound waves to destroy fibroids. Pregnancy is not recommended after these procedures.

A hysterectomy will provide definitive treatment. This is the surgical removal of the uterus and can be performed in various degrees and with different surgical approaches.

Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery

Endometrial polyps

Endometrial polyps, also called uterine polyps, are abnormal tissue growths on the inner lining of the uterus. Most of the time endometrial polyps are not cancerous (benign) but they can sometimes develop into cancer if left untreated.

Since women of reproductive age shed the inner lining of the uterus during menstruation, endometrial polyps are more common in women that have gone through menopause. However, they can affect women of all ages.

Symptoms of endometrial polyps

Like fibroids, endometrial polyps may or may not cause symptoms, depending on their size, number and location. Symptoms of endometrial polyps include:

  • Postmenopausal vaginal bleeding
  • Bleeding between menstrual periods
  • Very heavy bleeding during menstrual periods
  • Bleeding after intercourse or exercise.

If endometrial polyps are suspected, imaging techniques such as ultrasound and hysteroscopy are usually used to confirm their presence. If polyps are found, an OB-GYN will take a small tissue sample for a biopsy to check for cancer or precancerous cells.

Endometrial polyps treatment

Sometimes polyps will go away over time without treatment. If endometrial polyps are identified in an exam and a woman is not experiencing severe symptoms and is not at risk for cancer, she may be advised to wait and see if the polyps resolve on their own.

Usually an OB-GYN will recommend the removal of symptomatic endometrial polyps, and removal will always be advised if there is concern for cancerous or precancerous cells. Hysteroscopy is performed to remove polyps. This involves using a lighted tube and camera called a hysteroscope, which is inserted through the vagina. The surgeon will insert small instruments through the tube to remove the polyps.

Hormonal medications may be prescribed for short-term relief of symptoms caused by polyps, but may not eliminate the polyps themselves.

Ovarian cysts

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that may develop on one or both of a woman’s ovaries. The ovaries are responsible for producing female reproductive hormones as well as releasing an egg each month during ovulation. The most common types of cysts form during ovulation when one of the follicles on the ovaries responsible for releasing an egg fails to open.

In most cases these cysts will go away in a few months without treatment and without causing symptoms. Because most ovarian cysts form during ovulation, they are far less common in women who have gone through menopause.

Complications arise when cysts become abnormally large. Less commonly, cysts may rupture or cause ovarian torsion, a condition in which the ovary is abnormally twisted due to the cyst. In rare cases, ovarian cysts can be cancerous. Additionally, some women produce many small cysts on their ovaries due to a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a common cause of infertility in women.

Symptoms of ovarian cysts

fibroids | CU Rocky Mountain OB-GYN | woman in pain on couchThe majority of ovarian cysts will not cause symptoms. When they do, the symptoms include:

  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pressure
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Frequent and/or difficult urination
  • Sudden, sharp pain due to a ruptured cyst.

Women experiencing sudden and severe pain should seek immediate medical help, particularly if the pain is accompanied by vomiting or fever.

When ovarian cysts are suspected during an exam, an OB-GYN will determine whether or not further testing is needed. This is usually done via pelvic ultrasound.

If further evaluation is needed, laparoscopic surgery may be used to investigate ovarian cysts. This minimally invasive technique uses a small incision and a camera to help guide the surgeon. Laparoscopy may also be used to surgically remove the cysts.

Ovarian cysts treatment

Since ovarian cysts often resolve on their own without treatment, a period of watchful waiting may be recommended if a cyst is identified during a routine examination. Periodic pelvic ultrasounds may be used to monitor the growth and development of the cyst.

Oral contraceptives (birth control) may be prescribed to prevent the formation of ovarian cysts during ovulation.

If surgical intervention is necessary, ovarian cysts can often be removed while keeping the ovaries and other pelvic organs intact. This is called a cystectomy. In more severe cases, an oophorectomy (removal of one or both ovaries) may be necessary.

The first step in preventing complications from fibroids, polyps and cysts is a routine pelvic exam.

18 Sept 2018 Monument (Drawing), Numbers look and song by Röyksopp & Robyn

The name I gave the drawing was Monument.  The brainstorming here pretty much began with that.  This isn’t “all inclusive.”  It never is.  There are so many words in all the languages we speak for these sorts of things.  This is just my looking at what I’ve seen as an observer of the entertainment, “being famous” business.  People who embark on the famous business either rise, coast or fall just like statues.  What is the most important thing?  What we did in this life? How we are remembered after we die?  Follow this all the way to the bottom and you’ll see where I’m at it the question.

Monument – The Inevitable End Version

Make a space
For my body
Dead or whole,
Push this side apart
This is what I’m controlling,
It’s a mole, the inside that I cart
This will be my monument
This will be a beacon when I’m gone, gone, gone
When I’m gone, gone, gone
When I’m gone!
Soon when that moment comes,
I can say I did it all with love, love, love
All with love, love, love
All with love!
Make a cast of my body
Pull back out,
So that I can see
Make a world
Are you ruling?

9 Sept 2018 Thoughts in Spirals (drawing)

9 Sept 2018 – I did this earlier today.  Can you see on the left, the one holding on to their thoughts like a carefully guarded treasure?   “Thoughts in spirals” = 235/10/1

Is what we see what we think or is what we think what we see? (591/15/6/3 cycle) – phrase that came to my mind thinking about this drawing

Reality = 90/9  Fantasy = 86/14/5  Illusion = 111/3  Simulation = 133/7 Creation = 85/13/4  Hologram = 89/17/8/4/2/1

= 594/18/9 cycle

“Life as we know it” = 172/19/10/1 or 10 divided by 2 = 5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

594 + 172

= 766/19/10/1 or 10 divided by 2 = 5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

It’s interesting to see with just this  little sampling that it boils down to the same answer, in the numbers at least!

 

This stuff has been on my mind again.  Most everything has already been done in music, movies, books, games etc., so what is it that we are buying?  We are paying to read, to play, to see and or to hear someone’s personal interpretation or unique vision/version of what has already come before.  So while the concept of an original thought or idea may not exist, an original interpretation of an existing thought or idea can.  My riddling this out is helpful because it helps me understand some of what is going on with the creative industries these days.

original thought = 184/13/2/1  intellectual property = 267/15/6/3  copyright infringement = 255/12/6/3

= 706/13/4/2/1

copyright = 121/4/2/1  property = 133/7  original = 85/13/4/2/1 creative = 83/11/2/1 rights = 81/9  royalties =124/7  profits = 103/4

ownership = 127/10/1

= 857/20/2/1

“It’s all about making money” = 259/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

“Point of view” = 154/19/10/1

Perspective = 138/12/3

Perception = 121/4/2/1

= 672/15/6/3

706 + 857 + 672 = 2235/48/12/6/3  — seems to boil down to copyright infringement doesn’t it?!

(Thoughts in spirals = 235 showed up in here lol)

Personal interpretation = 284/14/5 very close to original thought = 184/13/2/1 

2235 + 284 = 2519/17/8/4/2/1 very close to “It’s all about making money” = 259/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

money = 72/9

2519 + 72 = 2591/17/8/4/2/1

What is copyright infringement?

As a general matter, copyright infringement occurs when a copyrighted work is reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed, or made into a derivative work without the permission of the copyright owner.

What is peer-to-peer (P2P) networking?

A type of network where computers communicate directly with each other, rather than through a central server. Often referred to simply as peer-to-peer, or abbreviated P2P, a type of network in which each workstation has equivalent capabilities and responsibilities in contrast to client/server architectures, in which some computers are dedicated to serving the other computers. A “network” is a group of two or more computer systems linked together by various methods. In recent usage, peer-to-peer has come to describe applications in which users can use the Internet to exchange files with each other directly or through a mediating server.

Where is the public domain?

The public domain is not a place. A work of authorship is in the “public domain” if it is no longer under copyright protection or if it failed to meet the requirements for copyright protection. Works in the public domain may be used freely without the permission of the former copyright owner.

9 Sept 2018 Defragging (drawing) and Pluto

Hi there.  Hope this finds you well in your present moment.  As you may have noticed I’ve not been doing so much outdoor chalk drawing lately.  Part of it is because of the wonderful wet weather we’ve been experiencing here lately and part of it something strange that happened to me with color.  I started to make associations, sometimes negative ones, with colors.  The same thing that I was experiencing with specific objects, some of which got broken.  Just taking a break from it and retreating back to pencils and pens for a bit.  Honestly, I’ve never been comfortable with adding color to my art.  It’s such a commitment!  This past Friday I told my friend who has a couple of my paintings that she has proof I stepped out of my comfort zone!

Do you remember the scene in the movie Close Encounters when Richard Dreyfuss character Roy Neary is shaping his mashed potatoes into Devil’s Tower and exclaims, “This MEANS something!?”  Wife is vexed, kids crying in the “Daddy your scaring me” sort of way and there he is trying to explain himself to people who just can’t understand the fuck it is he’s thinking and doing with those mashed potatoes!

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind Mashed Potatoes

Published on May 30, 2011

Dinner scene in the 1977 classic movie ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ from director Steven Spielberg. Starring Richard Dreyfuss. Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) can’t get the image of the Devil’s Tower out of his head, and creates the shape of it in mashed potatoes…

Life is kind of like that for me sometimes lol!  What the fuck is she thinking?!  What the fuck is she doing?!  What is wrong with her?!  Thankfully my dogs just want to be along for the ride and my husband actually gets the meaning behind most of my art and other expressions.  Sometimes we’ve been known to both shape our piles of mashed potatoes into Devil’s Tower, look at each other and not have to say it.

Some of you may find my “numbers thing” odd.  It’s become for me what doing a crossword puzzle or Suduko might be for someone else.  I am finding there is honesty in numbers that I don’t always find in words.   Like people, words don’t always mean what they say.

8 Sept 2018 – Drawing I did yesterday thinking about how meditating, praying, having a moment of silence is like defragging ourselves.

“Defragging a computer” = 190/10/1

Defragment = 93/12/3 cycle

Prayer = 83/11/2/1

Pray = 60/6/3 cycle

Meditate = 77/14/5   (talk about an intersection in the numbers, #Christ =77)

Chant = 46/10/1

“Moment of silence” = 168/15/6/3 cycle

= 717/15/6/3 cycle

“It all passes through, let it go” = 318/12/3 cycle  (one of my mantras when I’m trying to calm myself down)

anxiety = 98/17/8/4/2/1

fear = 30/3 cycle

worry = 99/18/9 cycle

happiness = 107/8/4/2/1

emotion = 91/10/1

feeling = 58/13/4/2/1

= 483/15/6/3 cycle (the numeric value of my mantra is in the numeric summary of words associated with it.)

= 1518/168/15/6/3 cycle (adding it all up) = “Moment of silence” = 168/15/6/3 cycle

 

Side note – saw just this morning they are taking another look at Pluto.  Just yesterday afternoon I was thinking about this too!  I added it back in and it seems to make sense to do that.  :

“Milky Way Galaxy” = 189/18/9 cycle

166 + 752 = 918 (same numeric values as Milky Way Galaxy)

“Solar system” = 166/12/13/4/2/1

Mercury = 103/4/2/1 Venus = 81/9 cycle Earth = 52/7 Mars = 51/6/3 cycle

Jupiter = 99/18/9 cycle Saturn = 93/12/3 cycle Uranus = 94/13/4/2/1

Neptune = 95/14/5

= 668/20/2 or 38/11/2

Pluto = 84/12/3 cycle

668 + 84 = 752/14/5 or 41/5  (5 like a celestial body?  celestial body = 132/6/3 cycle)

6 Sept 2018 A tribute in music (Dream)

Hello to you.  Hope this finds you well.  No drawings today – we were blessed with rain.  I’d rather have that then my drawings any day!

I had an interesting dream in the midst of a not very restful night.

It was a dream about random people gathered in a theater paying tribute to a musician by playing one of the musicians songs together.  Each person was playing their own instrument.  It was a short song.  The music was projected on a large screen so everyone could see it to play.

I kind of remembered the song this morning – sounded like something that would be fun for a brass band to play!  It’s gone now, but I enjoyed it for a while this morning.  I think that would a lovely way for ordinary folks to pay tribute to a musician!  Just show up with whatever instrument you play, put the music up and read, set go!  Some of us don’t read music proficiently so we get to just appreciate what we see and hear….may be hum along.  I like to do that.

I couldn’t resist riddling this out in the numbers to see what would come up.

When I see a number go back to 1, it means self to me.  For example music goes back to 1 and that’s pretty  much how music is.  You choose a genre/sound of music you like and you enjoy it.  It doesn’t matter if anyone else does because when you are enjoying it, it’s for you.

The reason I divide a number that doesn’t come out straight away by 2 is thinking of light and shadow, the two sides of ourselves that are employed when we analyze a person, place or thing.  Perspective has two sides and we are biologically incapable of perceiving anything the exact same way.

When  I see a 3 cycle come up, it’s like life, death, rebirth or just the cycles of life.  A lot of times when I like a song, it’s pretty much for life but it can go in cycles.  One day I’ll like the song, the next I don’t but give it a couple days, weeks or even years and I might enjoy it again sort of thing.

When I see a 9 cycle come up, it makes me think of the phrase, “it’s not easy” or doesn’t come naturally as a cycle.  For example high fructose corn syrup = 288/18/9 cycle (the body doesn’t know what to do with this stuff.)

When I see numbers associated with my name or birth date, a personal flag goes up – 02/13/1968.  If I riddle the date Zero Two One Three One Nine Six Eight = 389/20.  If I riddle the date out like Zero Two Thirteen Nineteen Sixty- Eight = 453/12.  If I riddle the date out like Thirteen February Nineteen Sixty- Eight = 427/13.  For fun = 389 + 453 + 427 = 1269/99/18/9 cycle!  20 + 12 +13 = 45/9 cycle.  No matter how you compute it, 9 factors in and is a pretty accurate look at my life.

So here is what came up with the  theme of my dream – what do you see?

https://www.gematrix.org

A Tribute in Music = 184/13/4/2/1

Tribute = 95/14/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Music = 65/11/2/1

Hear = 32/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Listen = 79/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Play = 54/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle 

Sing = 49/13/4/2/1 

Song = 55/10/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1  (kind of how it goes when we are deciding if we like a song)

Write = 75/12/3 divided by 2 = 1.5 = 6 divided by 2 = 3 cycle

Write Music = 140/5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1 (looks the process of writing a song)

Play Music = 119/11/2/1 

Sing a song = 105/6/3 divided by 2 = 1.5 = 6 divided by 2 = 3 cycle

Play a song = 110/2/1

Hear a song = 88/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Listen to a song = 170/8/4/2/1

Love Music = 119/11/2/1

Music (65) + Sing (49) + Play Music (119) + Play a song (110) + Listen to a song (170) + Love Music (119) = 632/11/2/1 (632 is basically love music)

Hear (32) + Listen (79) + Play (54) + Song (55) + Write (75) = 295/16/7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1

Write music (140) + Sing a song (105) + Hear a song (88) = 333/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle 

632 + 295 = 927/18/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle

632 – 295 = 337/13/4/2/1

632 + 295 + 333 = 1260/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle

Hard (31) work (67) = 98/17/8/4/2/1

Music (65) Business (108) = 173/11/2/1

Business = 108/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle 

98 + 173 = 271/10/1

Dream (41) Theme (51) = 92/11 divided by 2 = 5.5 = 10 divided by 2 = 5 divided by 2 = 2.5 = 7 divided by 2 = 3.5 = 8/4/2/1  or just 2/1

Indian Blanket Flower. ‘Gaillardia pulchella’. The Indian Blanket Flower also known as the Firewheel or the Sundance flower, is the official state wild flower of the State of Oklahoma.

Gaillardia pulchella = 164/11/2/1
Indian Blanket Flower = 195/16/7
Firewheel = 91/10/1
Sundance flower = 160/7
Flower = 79/16/7
Plant = 63/9 cycle
Living Being = 110/2/1
Open Field = 86
Planet = 68
Gift from God = 120/3 cycle (what it is for me)

 

 

5 Sept 2018 Sentient or Food

Hello.   I hope this finds you well.  I saw this morning that Japan is making a proposal to resume commercial whaling and at first I got really upset.  Then I decided to look at things a little more closely and of course found myself in the hypocrite box.  I eat meat and meat comes from cows which are sentient beings.  I don’t know to what degree they rank up with whales but nevertheless, before I can point a finger at others, I have to remove “the plank in my own eye” on this.    It’s so hard to resist passing judgement on others who don’t believe what we believe and live the way we choose to live.  It’s almost like a reflex, an instinct to do so.  At least it can be that way for me.  It’s when I take a minute to reflect and step back from something and or someone I’m upset about that I realize my part in it.  I realize that I’ve either done something or been someone just like that at some point in my life.  I eventually set aside my anger to find understanding, compassion and even forgiveness.

Matthew 7 New International Version (NIV)

Judging Others

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

 

As I’ve mentioned before, sometimes when you look at the words we’ve come up with through time to describe certain things, you find some interesting things numerically.  It’s become important to  me to start looking at this because words are what I use to communicate the most, not numbers and yet, if you think about it, numbers are behind a great deal of what we say and do in this world.  The numeric value of a word, I’ve been finding, doesn’t always match what it means by definition.  Since I’ve discovered Gematria, it’s really opened my eyes about the foundations of language and communication.  Take a look at what I’ve put together, what do you see?  Do you see patterns?

“What’s your bottom line?” = 275/14/5  “Bottom Line” = 125/8  Money = 72/9 cycle  Survival = 124/Existence = 104/5

“Moronuki said the United States is guilty of a double standard by allowing native communities in Alaska to continue whaling while not wanting Japan to do so, even though whaling is a tradition in some communities in Japan.

“All animals are equal,” he added. “Some say whales are intelligent, but I hear that some scientists found that other animals like cows and horses, they are as intelligent as whales. So you must be aware that we cannot draw the line between animals: ‘They should not be killed because they are intelligent, but others, they are not so intelligent, they should be killed.’ ”

Perry rejected that argument.

“Whether whales are sentient or not, they are very difficult to count. They are long-lived, slow-breeding animals. It’s very hard to know if you are depleting the population, and if you do deplete the population, it takes a long time to recover.”

4 Sept 2018 Drawings and Song

1 Sept 2018/1158  – Pink spirit book entry

Song that came to me while I was sitting outside –

Do you know where you are?

In heaven.  In heaven.

It’s not a place you go

It’s a place you are

Sitting right next

To a shining star.

(# value 1229/14/5 – (like 5 senses)

Five Senses = 123/6  taste sight touch smell and sound = 348/15/6/3 cycle

1229 – 348 = 881/17/8  (God # = 26/8)

(The God of my understanding “lives” through us and all of the other beings we share the earth with, pure energy, so these number results make sense to me.  Without a body, without the senses, you would be formless, sentient energy.)

Formless, sentient energy = 287/17/8

287 + 123 = 410/5

Energy = 74/11/2/1   (287-74 = 213/6/3 cycle)

Jesus = 74

123 + 74 = 197/17/8

Heaven = 55/10

“Our Heaven” = 109/10/5

“My Heaven” = 93/12/6/3 cycle (life, death, rebirth)

“Heaven on Earth” = 136/10/1

(add all this up, you get 393/15/6/3 cycle, found out the dialing code for Italy is 39!)

https://www.etymonline.com/word/heaven

heaven (n.)

Old English heofon “home of God,” earlier “the visible sky, firmament,” probably from Proto-Germanic *hibin-, dissimilated from *himin- (cognates Low German heben, Old Norse himinn, Gothic himins, Old Frisian himul, Dutch hemel, German Himmel “heaven, sky”), which is of uncertain and disputed origin. Perhaps literally “a covering,” from a PIE root *kem- “to cover” (also proposed as the source of chemise). Watkins derives it elaborately from PIE *ak- “sharp” via *akman- “stone, sharp stone,” then “stony vault of heaven.”

From late 14c. as “a heavenly place; a state of bliss.” Plural use in sense of “sky” probably is from Ptolemaic theory of space as composed of many spheres, but it also formerly was used in the same sense as the singular in Biblical language, as a translation of Hebrew plural shamayim. Heaven-sent (adj.) attested from 1640s.

“Mein Himmel” = 101

System = 101

Something I puzzled with last night after reading about the question of whether or not Planet 9 actually exists.  This is what is came to for me:

“Ever expanding universe” = 257  “Does Planet Nine Exist?” = 230  257-230 = 27/9  – in the context of an ever expanding universe, yes, it probably does. 

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/does-planet-9-exist/ar-BBMR6AS?li=BBnbcA1

The mysterious, fabled “Planet 9” will have nowhere to hide once a new astronomical experiment is underway, scientists think.

Some scientists believe a mysterious, as-yet-unseen planet might be causing a number of minor planets to take strangely uniform paths around the sun. But so far, the elusive celestial object has remained undetected.

 

3 Sept 2018 “The Tree” (Dream)

3 Sept 2018 – Drawing I did last night. It was hard to concentrate. I guess they have started hunting again or something. It’s unnerving to hear gunfire so close to a residential area these days.

Hello to you.  As I write there is very gentle rain and I’m so grateful for that.  It was getting dry here again.

It’s Labor Day again and a day to remember all those laborers of the past who literally died so people of today could have this day off of work:  https://www.history.com/topics/holidays/labor-day – there is video and more information at this link

“Many of these events turned violent during this period, including the infamous Haymarket Riot of 1886, in which several Chicago policemen and workers were killed. Others gave rise to longstanding traditions: On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history.

I stayed in bed a bit longer than Kyle did this morning and had an interesting dream while doing so.  It was about a woman remembering a story about her Grandma asking to speak to “The tree.”  It appeared in her room but she was afraid and then she couldn’t see it.   So she asked again.  Then the woman found her Grandma nearly dying face down on the floor when The Black Tree appeared again, but she was able to wake her, she wasn’t dead yet.

CAT PEOPLE — Irena’s Dream  (One of my cult classic films from childhood)

Source is internet:  3 Sept 2018 – “The tree “in the dream makes me think of Cat People. It looked like a shadow of a tree; a black tree.

My Grandma’s taught me a lot about nature as I was growing up and to respect it – especially the flowers and the trees.  I miss my Grandma Schmidt’s beautiful flowers – especially her giant roses!  I miss my Grandma Becker and our walks in her neighborhood where she would point out her favorite trees and tell me about them.  How each one was an individual and had its own personality just like people.

In my own experience with trees, I would say the same.  I have mourned for trees that were taken in storms or by sickness.  I have sensed when a tree wasn’t feeling well by putting my hands on it.  I have listened to the wind blowing through the trees living around me and hearing a sound like cheering… “Hurray!” but in a whisper.  Through them I have learned about the cycles of life and how there is hope when you look at their life cycles.   Just one tree is a whole eco-system!  I suspect that when you take off your shoes and socks and stand on the ground, you are plugging yourself into the tree network!  Who knows for sure but the God who made all this wonder.

I found this interesting article to share on the subject.  May be there is something in it for you too:

WHISPERING PINES

A biologist believes that trees speak a language we can learn

By Ephrat Livni November 3, 2017

I’m in a redwood forest in Santa Cruz, California, taking dictation for the trees outside my cabin. They speak constantly, even if quietly, communicating above- and underground using sound, scents, signals, and vibes. They’re naturally networking, connected with everything that exists, including you.

Biologists, ecologists, foresters, and naturalists increasingly argue that trees speak, and that humans can learn to hear this language.

Many people struggle with this concept because they can’t perceive that trees are interconnected, argues biologist George David Haskell in his 2017 book The Songs of Trees. Connection in a network, Haskell says, necessitates communication and breeds languages; understanding that nature is a network is the first step in hearing trees talk.

For the average global citizen, living far from the forest, that probably seems abstract to the point of absurdity. Haskell points readers to the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador for practical guidance. To the Waorani people living there, nature’s networked character and the idea of communication among all living things seems obvious. In fact, the relationships between trees and other lifeforms are reflected in Waorani language.

In Waorani, things are described not only by their general type, but also by the other beings surrounding them. So, for example, any one ceibo tree isn’t a “ceibo tree” but is “the ivy-wrapped ceibo,” and another is “the mossy ceibo with black mushrooms.” In fact, anthropologists trying to classify and translate Waorani words into English struggle because, Haskell writes, “when pressed by interviewers, Waorani ‘could not bring themselves’ to give individual names for what Westerners call ‘tree species’ without describing ecological context such as the composition of the surrounding vegetation.”

Because they relate to the trees as live beings with intimate ties to surrounding people and other creatures, the Waorani aren’t alarmed by the notion that a tree might scream when cut, or surprised that harming a tree should cause trouble for humans. The lesson city-dwellers should take from the Waorani, Haskell says, is that “dogmas of separation fragment the community of life; they wall humans in a lonely room. We must ask the question: ‘can we find an ethic of full earthly belonging?’”

There’s room at the Redwood Inn.

Haskell points out that throughout literary and musical history there are references to the songs of trees, and the way they speak: whispering pines, falling branches, crackling leaves, the steady hum buzzing through the forest. Human artists have always known on a fundamental level that trees talk, even if they don’t quite say they have a “language.”

Redefining communication

Tree language is a totally obvious concept to ecologist Suzanne Simard, who has spent 30 years studying forests. In June 2016, she gave a Ted Talk (which now has nearly 2.5 million views), called “How Trees Talk to Each Other.”

Simard grew up in the forests of British Columbia in Canada, studied forestry, and worked in the logging industry. She felt conflicted about cutting down trees, and decided to return to school to study the science of tree communication. Now, Simard teaches ecology at the University of British Columbia-Vancouver and researches “below-ground fungal networks that connect trees and facilitate underground inter-tree communication and interaction,” she says. As she explained to her Ted Talk audience:

“I want to change the way you think about forests. You see, underground there is this other world, a world of infinite biological pathways that connect trees and allow them to communicate and allow the forest to behave as though it’s a single organism. It might remind you of a sort of intelligence.”

Trees exchange chemicals with fungus, and send seeds—essentially information packets—with wind, birds, bats, and other visitors for delivery around the world. Simard specializes in the underground relationships of trees. Her research shows that below the earth are vast networks of roots working with fungi to move water, carbon, and nutrients among trees of all species. These complex, symbiotic networks mimic human neural and social networks. They even have mother trees at various centers, managing information flow, and the interconnectedness helps a slew of live things fight disease and survive together.

Simard argues that this exchange is communication, albeit in a language alien to us. And there’s a lesson to be learned from how forests relate, she says. There’s a lot of cooperation, rather than just competition among and between species as was previously believed.

Peter Wohlleben came to a similar realization while working his job managing an ancient birch forest in Germany. He told the Guardian he started noticing trees had complex social lives after stumbling upon an old stump still living after about 500 years, with no leaves. “Every living being needs nutrition,” Wohlleben said. “The only explanation was that it was supported by the neighbor trees via the roots with a sugar solution. As a forester, I learned that trees are competitors that struggle against each other, for light, for space, and there I saw that it’s just [the opposite]. Trees are very interested in keeping every member of this community alive.” He believes that they, like humans, have family lives in addition to relationships with other species. The discovery led him to write a book, The Hidden Life of Trees.

By being aware of all living things’ inter-reliance, Simard argues, humans can be wiser about maintaining mother trees who pass on wisdom from one tree generation to the next. She believes it could lead to a more sustainable commercial-wood industry: in a forest, a mother tree is connected to hundreds of other trees, sending excess carbon through delicate networks to seeds below ground, ensuring much greater seedling survival rates.

Foreign language studies

Biology’s philosophers in dialogue.

Seedling survival is important to human beings because we need trees. “The contributions of forests to the well-being of humankind are extraordinarily vast and far-reaching,” according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization 2016 report on world forests (pdf).

Forests are key to combating rural poverty, ensuring food security, providing livelihoods, supplying clean air and water, maintaining biodiversity, and mitigating climate change, the FAO says. The agency reports that progress is being made toward better worldwide forest conservation but more must be done, given the importance of forests to human survival.

Most scientists—and trees—would no doubt agree that conservation is key. Haskell believes that ecologically friendly policies would naturally become a priority for people if we’d recognize that trees are masters of connection and communication, managing complex networks that include us. He calls trees “biology’s philosophers,” dialoguing over the ages, and offering up a quiet wisdom. We should listen, the biologist says, because they know what they’re talking about. Haskell writes, “Because they are not mobile, to thrive they must know their particular locus on the Earth far better than any wandering animal.”
