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.

How many species of bacteria live in the human body?

It is estimated that 500 to 1,000 species of bacteria live in the human gut but belong to just a few phyla: Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes dominate but there are also Proteobacteria, Verrumicrobia, Actinobacteria, Fusobacteria and Cyanobacteria.

Do bugs live on your body?

Many microscopic bugs and bacteria live on our skin and within our various nooks and crannies. Almost anywhere on (or even within) the human body can be home to these enterprising bugs. Bugs affect us in a variety of ways: some bad, such as infections, but many good.Apr 24, 2014

How much of the human body is human?

We now understand that humans are 90% microbial but only 10% human. The average human has over 100 trillion microbes in and on their body, and many of the latest discoveries are challenging previously held ideas about good and bad bacteria.

14 Sept 2018 Brainstorm about natural disasters, God and Energy forms in the numbers

Hello to you.  Just a quick visit.  I hope this finds you well in your present moment.  There are many all over this world experiencing natural disasters and trauma at the moment.  There isn’t much I can do for any of them but express that I care and I hope everything ends up alright.

https://www.gematrix.org/

I did a bit of brainstorming here with this subject.  I didn’t break these out like I normally do because it can get confusing to look at.  If you find an error, let me know!  If you notice something interesting – leave a comment.  Thank you!

(from Steinbrugge Collection of the UC Berkeley Earthquake Engineering Research Center ) The California earthquake of April 18, 1906 ranks as one of the most significant earthquakes of all time. Today, its importance comes more from the wealth of scientific knowledge derived from it than from its sheer size.

Found this article explaining different types of energy

https://www.thoughtco.com/main-energy-forms-and-examples-609254

Energy is defined as the ability to do work. Energy comes in various forms. Here are 10 common types of energy and examples of them.

Mechanical Energy

mechanical energy in Simple Gematria equals: 143

Mechanical energy is energy that results from movement or the location of an object. Mechanical energy is the sum of kinetic energy and potential energy.

Examples: An object possessing mechanical energy has both kinetic and potential energy, although the energy of one of the forms may be equal to zero.

Thermal Energy

thermal energy in Simple Gematria equals: 151

Thermal energy or heat energy reflects the temperature difference between two systems.

Example: A cup of hot coffee has thermal energy. You generate heat and have thermal energy with respect to your environment.

Nuclear Energy

nuclear energy in Simple Gematria equals: 148

Nuclear energy is energy resulting from changes in the atomic nuclei or from nuclear reactions.

Example: Nuclear fission, nuclear fusion, and nuclear decay are examples of nuclear energy. An atomic detonation or power from a nuclear plant are specific examples of this type of energy.

Chemical Energy

chemical energy in Simple Gematria equals: 128

Chemical energy results from chemical reactions between atoms or molecules. There are different types of chemical energy, such as electrochemical energy and chemiluminescence.

Example: A good example of chemical energy is an electrochemical cell or battery.

Electromagnetic Energy

electromagnetic energy in Simple Gematria equals: 224

Electromagnetic energy (or radiant energy) is energy from light or electromagnetic waves.

Example: Any form of light has electromagnetic energy, including parts of the spectrum we can’t see. Radio, gamma rays, x-rays, microwaves, and ultraviolet light are some examples of electromagnetic energy.

sonic energy in Simple Gematria equals: 134

Sonic energy is the energy of sound waves. Sound waves travel through air or another medium.
Example: A sonic boom, a song played on a stereo, your voice

Gravitational Energy

gravitational energy in Simple Gematria equals: 223

Energy associated with gravity involves the attraction between two objects based on their mass. It can serve as a basis for mechanical energy, such as the potential energy of an object placed on a shelf or the kinetic energy of the Moon in orbit around the Earth.

Example: Gravitational energy holds the atmosphere to the Earth.

Kinetic Energy

kinetic energy in Simple Gematria equals: 145

Kinetic energy is the energy of motion of a body. It ranges from 0 to a positive value.

Example: An example is a child swinging on a swing. No matter whether the swing is moving forward or backward, the value of the kinetic energy is never negative.

Potential Energy

potential energy in Simple Gematria equals: 186

Potential energy is the energy of an object’s position.

Example: When a child swinging on a swing reaches the top of the arc, she has maximum potential energy. When she is closest to the ground, her potential energy is at its minimum (0). Another example is throwing a ball into the air. At the highest point, the potential energy is greatest. As the ball rises or falls it has a combination of potential and kinetic energy.

Ionization Energy

ionization energy in Simple Gematria equals: 206

Ionization energy is the form of energy that binds electrons to the nucleus of its atom, ion, or molecule.
Example: The first ionization energy of an atom is the energy needed to remove one electron completely. The second ionization energy is energy to remove a second electron and is greater than that required to remove the first electron.

11 Sept 2018 Seventeenth Anniversary (9/11)

Hello to you.  How are you?  I’m doing ok.  Today is the 17th anniversary of 9/11/2001.  Today I’m thinking about all the survivors who are yet struggling with cancer and the other adverse health conditions that came from the day.  I am thinking about the family of those who died that day….all of us.  Directly or indirectly, we are all family.   Sometimes families fight and do really horrible things to each other.  To me, as I look at 9/11 all these years later, that day is a testimony to what extremes can come from a dysfunctional family.

Noise (62) Pollution (134) = 196  Decibels = 59 Deafness = 73 = 328  Noise (62) Ordinance (83) = 145

328 + 145 = 473/14/5

328 – 145 = 183/12/3 cycle

HEARING LOSS & TINNITUS STATISTICS

A Public Health Epidemic – The Statistics Show a Troubling Trend

From 2000 to 2015, the number of Americans with hearing loss has doubled. 
Globally the number is up by 44%.

  • 48 million people in America1 and ~360 million worldwide
    • 1 in 5 teens
    • 1 in 5 adults
    • 3 in 5 of returning military service members
      • Hearing loss and tinnitus are the top two reported health concerns among service members both active and veterans.
  • Hearing loss is the 2nd most prevalent health issue globally
    • The number of people with hearing loss is more than those living with Parkinson’s, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes combined.
  • Tinnitus (ringing/buzzing in ears) affects ~10% of Americans on a regular basis
    • 25 million American adults report experiencing tinnitus for five or more continuous minutes in the past year
    • 16 million people seek medical attention for tinnitus
    • Roughly 90 percent of tinnitus cases occur with an underlying hearing loss1
  • Causes of Hearing Loss and Tinnitus
    • Genetic factors
    • Noise
    • Trauma
    • Ototoxic medications (medicine-induced hearing loss)
    • Viral or bacterial infections
    • Aging

Why is the number of people with hearing loss increasing?

1. Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

People are exposed to dangerous noise levels at work or during leisure activities

  • 26 million people in U.S. between ages 20-69 have hearing loss
  • 20% of teens ages 12-19 have reported hearing loss due to loud noise
  • 30 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous noise levels

2. Age-Related Hearing Loss

The population of people age 65+ is expanding… rapidly

  • 33% of Americans between ages 65-74 and nearly 50% of those 75+ have hearing loss
  • Hearing loss has been associated with cognitive decline, dementia, depression, hospitalization, and heart disease, among other diseases and conditions1

3. Economic Impact Associated With Hearing Loss

  • Lifetime costs of untreated profound hearing loss can be as much as $1 million per person in the U.S.

Noise Pollution

Noise pollution is an unwanted or disturbing sound which can interfere with normal activities for humans and wildlife, such as sleeping, conversation, reproduction, communication, or disrupt or diminish one’s quality of life. Noise pollution can come from many sources, such as automobiles, motorcycles, aircraft, ships, trucks, buses, jet planes, construction equipment, electrical machinery, lawn mowers and leaf blowers, to name a few. Excessive noise pollution, from the city streets to the oceans’ commercial shipping traffic, can have harmful effects on the humans, plants, animals, trees and marine life constantly exposed to it. Long-term exposure to traffic noise may lead to coronary heart disease and accounts for approximately 210,000 deaths in Europe each year.

Effects of Noise Pollution

Human Health and Welfare

According to the World Health Organization, excessive noise seriously harms human health and interferes with people’s daily activities at school, at work, at home and during leisure time. It can disturb sleep, cause cardiovascular and psychophysiological effects, cause heart attacks, reduce performance and provoke annoyance responses and changes in social behaviour. The overlooked threat of noise pollution can cause a number of short- and long-term health problems, such as sleep disturbance, cardiovascular effects, poorer work and school performance, hearing impairment and more. Even low-level office noise can increase health risks and lower task motivation for workers, according to Cornell researchers. Children, night workers, those who cannot afford to live in quiet residential areas, chronically ill and elderly people are more vulnerable to noise. Noise pollution at night can lead to an increase in medical visits and spending on sleeping pills, which affects families’ budgets and countries’ health expenditure. According to the WHO, impairment of early childhood development and education caused by noise may have lifelong effects on academic achievement and health. Noise pollution can even lead to deaths from heart disease.

Studies and statistics on the effects of chronic exposure to aircraft noise on children have found consistent evidence that noise exposure harms cognitive performance, consistent association with impaired well-being and motivation to a slightly more limited extent and moderate evidence of effects on blood pressure and catecholamine hormone secretion.

Plants and Trees

Human noise can have ripple effects on long-lived plants and trees that can last for decades even after the sources of noise subside. Many plants and trees rely on birds and other animals to deliver pollen from one flower or tree to the next, or to disperse their seeds, but many animals are adapting to the noise by changing their behavior or moving to quieter locales. Consequently, noise pollution is altering the landscape of plants and trees, which depend on noise-affected animals to pollinate them and spread their seeds. Some plants do worse in noisy areas while others seem to do better, depending on how the community of creatures around them changes. The ripple effects can be far reaching and long lasting, especially for trees, which often take decades to grow from seedlings into adults. Learn more.

Benefits include hummingbirds preferring noisy sites because the western scrub jay, which preys on their nestlings, tends to avoid those noisy areas which increases the pollen transfer of hummingbird-pollinated plants, such as scarlet gilia, in the noisy sites. However, plants or trees such as the pinyon pine, might experience a decline because the animals or birds that are counted on for pollination shy away from the noise and can lead to a decline in tree or plant populations. These disturbances in a species that is vital for the community is going to have cascading effects throughout the ecosystem potentially leading to large-scale changes due to the responses of one or two important species.

Animals

By changing the fine-tuned balance between predator and prey detection and avoidance and interfering with the use of sounds in communication, especially in relation to reproduction and navigation, noise can have a detrimental effect on animals, increasing their risk of death. Hearing loss and rapid increase in heart rate are some of the ill-effects of noise pollution on animals. High intensity sound induces fear, which can force species to abandon their habitat. In loud places, studies have found that some birds have to sing at higher frequencies, bats and owls can have trouble finding prey, terrestrial insectivores lose habitat by avoiding areas with roads and construction, frogs can struggle to find mates, a population’s evolutionary trajectory can be altered by sapping resources normally devoted to other activities and thus lead to profound genetic and evolutionary consequences, various species experiencing hearing loss and the reduction of usable habitat that noisy areas may cause, which in the case of endangered species may be part of the path to extinction.

Noise pollution is becoming so ubiquitous that it is threatening biodiversity – even the protected animals living in National Parks in the U.S. are unable to escape the disturbing sounds as they are exposed to chronic levels of noise, which are audible during more than one quarter of daylight hours at more than half of 55 sites in 14 National Parks and at 12 sites, anthropogenic noise can be heard more than half the time.

Marine Life

As the Oceanic Preservation Society states, “Sound is to underwater creatures as sight is to humans.” Man-made noise is disrupting life below the surface where almost every living creature depends on sound as a primary sense for mating, communicating, hunting, and survival. Since the mid-1960s, the amount of commercial vessel traffic in Earth’s oceans has nearly doubled, resulting in an almost 16-fold increase in background noise intensity. The rising level of intense underwater sound produced by industrial ocean noise, oil and gas exploration, shipping traffic, seismic surveys, military sonar and other man-made sources can  afflict marine life with a lethal condition commonly known as ‘the Bends’ and poses a significant long-term threat to whales, dolphins, fish and other marine species from the individual animal’s well-being, right through to its reproduction, communication, migration and even survival of the species. The “auditory scene” derived from sounds provides marine animals with a three dimensional view of the world and extends far beyond the visual scene. Artificial noise in the environment that alters the marine organism’s ability to detect and analyze its auditory scene has the potential to cause a detrimental impact on the life of the animal as well as the survival of the species. Even short exposures to low-intensity, low-frequency sound can wreak havoc on the balance systems of squid, cuttlefish and octopi, but the impact of continuous, high-intensity noise pollution in the oceans could be devastating. Military sonar and ship engine noise can send a deafening tidal wave of noise for miles as sound in the water travels five times faster than on land. Whales, dolphins and other marine mammals that have been caught in the wake of sonar have died of cerebral hemorrhaging or intentionally beached themselves in a desperate attempt to avoid the ear-splitting resonance. Even oil and gas surveys have been shown to damage fish and dramatically reduce catch rates.

When you notice a difference between loud sounds and quiet ones, your ears are perceiving changes in sound pressure level. Intensity (or volume) is measured in decibels (dB). Zero (0) dB is the softest sound that can be heard. Normal conversation is around 40dB to 60dB, a whisper around 30dB. A rock concert can average between 110 and 120 dB. Pain from hearing is subjective. Levels below 125 dB may be painful to some individuals. The sound from a jet plane is approximately 140 dB.

At rock shows, the dB level can be as great as 140 dB in front of the speakers, but less than 120 dB at the back which is still very loud and dangerous.Danger Zone

OSHA PEL recommends:The maximum exposure time for unprotected ears per day is 8 hours at 90 dB , A-weighted, slow response For every 5- dB increase in volume, the maximum exposure time is cut in half.

  • 95 dB – 4 hours
  • 100 dB – 2 hours
  • 110 dB – 30 min
  • 120 dB- 7.5 min

Many hearing professionals believe that these permissible levels are still too high for hearing safety.

NIOSH, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommends 85 dB for eight hours a day. The maximum exposure time for unprotected ears per day is 8 hours at 85-dB, A-weighted, slow response For every 3- dB increase in volume, the maximum exposure time is cut in half.

  • 88 dB – 4 hours
  • 91 dB – 2 hours
  • 97 dB – 30 min
  • 103 dB- 7.5 min

Other sources of noise: boom cars, bars, dance clubs, motorcycles, auto races, monster trucks, farm and factory equipment, power tools, guns, sporting events, crowd noise, stereo headsets.

Hearing Damage

Noise-induced hearing loss affects both the quantity and the quality of sound. Understanding human speech becomes difficult because words become indistinct. Excessive sound exposure damages hearing by over-stimulating the tiny hair cells within the inner ear. There are between 15,000 and 20,000 of these microscopic sensory receptors in the cochlea (coke-lee-ah). When these hair cells are damaged, they no longer transmit sound to the brain. Sounds are muffled. Hearing damage through noise exposure is permanently lost. Hearing aids amplify the remainder of your hearing.

Is Your Hearing at Risk?

Warning signs:
After exposure to loud music or noise you may experience one or more of the following:

  • Ringing or buzzing in the ears
  • Slight muffling of sounds
  • Difficulty in understanding speech. You can hear all the words, but you can’t understand them.
  • Difficulty in hearing conversation in groups of people when there is background noise, or in rooms with poor acoustics.

If you experience any of these early warnings, don’t wait to seek help. Have your hearing checked by an audiologist, or have your ears examined by an ear specialist. Protect your hearing by wearing ear plugs or turning down the volume. Take breaks. Give your ears a chance to recover.

Types of Hearing Aids

How Our Hearing Works

ear diagramThe OUTER EAR acts like a funnel to direct sound waves from the air to the tympanic membrane (eardrum). Sound causes the tympanic membrane to vibrate. These vibrations cause the three bones in the MIDDLE EAR (malleus, incus, and stapes) to move mechanically. The middle ear sends these mechanical vibrations to the INNER EAR, where they are picked up by tiny hair cells (cilia) and sent as electrical impulses along the auditory nerve to the brain.

Hearing Loss: It’s A Matter of Degrees

Degree of Hearing Loss can be mild, moderate, severe, or profound.

Mild (25-40 dB). A person with a mild hearing loss will have difficulty following conversation if the speaker is more than six feet away or if there’s noise in the background.

Moderate (40-70 dB). A person with moderate hearing loss would be able to hear if the speaker is speaking loudly and at no more that 3 to 5 feet away. They’ll also have trouble hearing with background noise and will need to wear a hearing aid to hear conversation.

Severe (70-90 dB). A person with a severe hearing loss would be able to hear someone’s voice if the speaker shouts and is 1 foot away. Without a hearing aid the person would not be able to understand speech and only be able to hear some loud sounds( a siren, for example).

Profound (91 dB or more). A person with a profound hearing loss is only able to hear very loud sounds. With hearing aids they would probably be able to hear loud sounds, like perhaps a telephone ringing or a name being called but, it would be difficult to understand speech. With training their ability for understanding some speech may improve.

Types of Hearing Loss

28 Million Americans have a hearing loss; 80% of those affected have hearing damage that is irreversible and permanent.

17 million Americans are affected by sensorineural hearing damage resulting from heredity, birth, trauma, disease, advanced age, or exposure to noise.

A sensorineural hearing loss is damage to the hearing nerve in the inner ear.

Advances in hearing aid technology have made great improvements in total or at least partial rehabilitation. They can assist in understanding speech and improving the clarity of sound. They cannot restore hearing to normal in the way that eye glasses correct vision.

When there is difficulty in both the middle and inner ear, a mixed hearing loss (conductive and sensorineural) exists.

A conductive hearing loss occurs when the hearing nerve functions properly but there is difficulty in the outer or middle ear transmitting system. Sound can not conduct properly to the inner ear nerve or cochlea.

Conductive hearing loss can be the result of many different conditions. The most common is fluid in the middle ear. Fluid builds up behind the ear drum which sometimes becomes infected. This can be treated with antibiotics and other medications. If drug therapy fails, drainage can be accomplished through a small incision in the eardrum (myringotomy). Tubes may be inserted to provide middle ear aeration.

Otitis media is the most common form of temporary hearing loss among children.

Another cause of conductive hearing loss is the fixation of the hearing bones (otosclerosis) which can be corrected through a surgical procedure called a “stapedectomy.” Holes or perforations in the eardrums and damaged hearing bones can be corrected by reconstructive surgery.

Hearing loss may be a symptom of ear disease. It is important to have your hearing examined by an ear specialist, (otologists or an otolaryngologist), or have your ears evaluated by an audiologist.

Rehabilitation advances in speech reading, counseling, auditory training, hearing aids and assistive listening devices (ALDs) help overcome the handicap of hearing loss. Hearing aids are now available that fit entirely within the ear canal and are practically invisible to the human eye.

Hearing loss in the profoundly deaf can sometimes be aided by a cochelear implant. This is a device which consists of a magnetic coil placed in the mastoid bone behind the ear. An electrode connects to the inside of the inner ear and stimulates the hearing nerve which enables sound to be perceived.

2 Million Americans are Profoundly Deaf

There is a difference between being deaf and being hard-of-hearing. People are either born deaf or become deaf later in life through accident or illness. American Sign Language (ASL) is used by most culturally deaf people as their primary means of communication. ASL is recognized as a language of its own and is the fourth most commonly used language in the United States. Hard-of hearing people usually use their residual hearing and communicate verbally.

Is It Legal To Drive A Car With A Loud Exhaust System?

In the United States, it’s almost universally true that your car must have a muffler to be street legal. What’s more, every state and most cities/local authorities have rules prohibiting quote “loud” exhaust systems.

As a result, almost every car legally available for sale comes equipped with some sort of street-legal system. However, if you’ve decided to boost your car’s performance with an after-market exhaust system (and if you have, good work!), then you may be concerned that your exhaust system is too loud to be street legal.

Muffler & Exhaust System Sound Laws – No Standards For Maximum Noise

Unfortunately, there is no national law that vehicle owners and exhaust manufacturers can reference to make sure their systems aren’t too loud. Instead, every vehicle owner or exhaust system installer must know their local laws. In some states, such as California, the maximum sound level limit for vehicle exhausts is 95 decibels when measured next to the vehicle. In Kansas, state muffler laws require vehicle exhaust noise to be less than 90 decibels when measured from 50 feet away. Considering that sound loses power the further it travels, the 50 foot rule in Kansas means exhaust systems can be louder in that state than they can be in California. The state of Texas has no vehicle noise laws, meaning that cars and trucks can be even louder in Texas than they can in Kansas.

Of course, local communities can set their own rules that restrict sound levels even further. In New York City, drivers can be given a ticket if their car’s exhaust system is “plainly audible” from 150 feet away. In Mankato, MN, the maximum allowable exhaust sound limit is 86db, and many cities have adopted quiet rules that prohibit any loud exhaust system from operating between 11pm and 6am. Since there are no universal standards, it’s important that you learn the local laws for yourself.

It’s also important to recognize that the only way to measure sound levels is with a calibrated decibel meter…which is something most police cars don’t come equipped with. If you ever get a ticket for an overly loud exhaust system, you may be able to challenge it in court if the officer who ticketed you didn’t use a calibrated meter.

Standard Exhaust System Laws

While there are no standards for noise levels, there are some standard laws that apply to all cars in all states and localities:

  1. It’s illegal to try and modify your existing muffler to make your car louder. This law is on the books to prevent people from creating an exhaust leak, because exhaust leaks can be very dangerous.
  2. It’s illegal to drive a car that doesn’t have some kind of muffler. Open pipes are illegal anywhere you go.
  3. It’s illegal to remove the catalytic converter. Some people are under the impression that catalytic converters restrict exhaust flow, but they really don’t…especially newer models and/or catalytic converters designed for performance.
  4. It’s illegal to route your exhaust system through your vehicle’s passenger compartment.
  5. Backfires are illegal under any circumstance, and you can be ticketed if your car has a mechanical problem that causes frequent engine backfires.

What To Do If You’re Driving with a Loud Muffler

Since the law may vary from one community to another, and since enforcement of these laws is uneven, the best advice is:

  1. Drive as quietly as you can. Blipping the throttle at a red light is fun, but it’s noisy and likely to attract the attention of law enforcement. Same thing goes for WOT (wide open throttle) acceleration.
  2. Drive quietly late at night or early in the morning. If your car or truck has a loud exhaust system, a good way to avoid a ticket is to take it easy during the hours that most people sleep. Otherwise, you’re going to wake someone up and they’re going to call the cops and complain.
  3. Get with your local muffler shop and find out about swapping out your mufflers for something a little quieter. If that’s not an option, consider adding a removable muffler to the end of your vehicle’s tailpipe(s).

If you are pulled over for having a loud exhaust system, be sure to ask the officer if they had a chance to measure the decibels. If they didn’t use a sound meter, you may be able to ask them how they’re sure your system is too loud…as politely as possible, of course.

Good luck.

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?

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?

“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.”

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.”

 

2 Sept 2018 Hologram (Dream) and 149

Hello.  It’s Sunday morning as I write.  Laundry is chugging away and everybody is still in bed yet.  We have been struggling to get restful sleep for some time now.  I’m hoping as we get closer to fall and cooler days that this will change too.

Had a couple interesting dreams this morning.  One was one of those really brief flash dreams.  It looked a bit like a computer simulation of a black circle moving through space.  It made me think of a slinky.  A circle leaving an “after image” behind itself.  A slinky actually has a bunch of them tangibly connected to it.  Don’t know what that was about!

The other one was about walking into a dusty room and an Aaliyah like woman was standing there as a hologram….so I thought.  We started to sing together.  I did the harmonizing thing I do and walked closer to her.  I reached out to touch her because what we were doing seemed like something two real people would do not a hologram.  When I touched her she was warm.  I was surprised and said, “I didn’t think you were real!” and she said, “Neither did I!”  The song stuck in my head as I was writing down this dream was Aaliyah’s song “One in a Million.”

https://www.aaliyah.com/ – her official site

Aaliyah’s tragic death hit me really hard.  I used to sing and harmonize with her songs to try and comfort myself.

I’ve been thinking about these police involved shootings and thinking about reflexes.  I was thinking about survival instincts and what people do, no matter how much training they have had, when they are afraid.  People are typically afraid of what they cannot see.  When you encounter someone who is unstable, mentally ill or that you have a fear about, I suspect reflexes and survival instincts kick in.   You can’t see “what someone is going to do” in situations like what happened with Vanessa and so many others now.

Speaking as a person who has been through this,  I honestly don’t know how well you can prepare yourself.  Unless you can read minds or you are like a dog and can read even the slightest tick in body behavior and respond accordingly it seems like your screwed no matter what you do!  I think there is hope in sensitivity training and application of that training in various hands-on scenarios.  Reading about and or clicking buttons through a scenario simulator aren’t enough.  I think you actually need interactive training for this.

The way the police dealt with me to make sure I was ok came at many different levels.  One was they reminded me of my brother-in-laws I love so that helped.  Two they did not approach me in an aggressive or threatening manner – very kind.  Three they managed their energy with the tone of their voice and body language – the way they spoke to me was very soothing and enlisted my trust.   Four I am a white woman who speaks English.  I wonder if I were black, Hispanic or some other nationality if things would have gone the same?  When I think of our town police who I respect greatly, I’d like to think it would have gone just the same but I don’t know.

The internal clashes of culture, of all the labels we all wear,  do not end when someone puts on a badge.  We ask human beings to suppress so much of themselves to become police officers.  I think under duress, sometimes, all those normal safety catches get lifted and the bullets fly.  We get angry when the cops don’t respond quickly enough to our time of crisis and hate them when they do.  We ask human beings to be armed angels and are surprised when some of them fall.

I don’t know if this is an appropriate example but it’s what Kyle and I were talking about yesterday.  It’s like zombie movies.  The person looks like a human, acts like a human but behaves like something else completely.  Is this the person I knew or is it a zombie?!  You just don’t know what the zombie is going to do!  How can you prepare yourself to deal with this type of scenario?  Do you shut off any sort of human empathy you have and just shoot before finding out the zombie isn’t a zombie or do you use the empathy inside of you and risk being hurt, bitten or eaten?

To me, this is what many of our police are facing today.  They are having to deal with a lot of people who look human but under fear and duress become something completely different.  We are seeing the police survival instincts versus the survival instincts kicking in for a person who is having the worst day of their life.  In more cases than not, this is a lethal combination.

Voices on a paper

I often eavesdrop to random voices roaming in the air. Some leave bruises on my eyelids due to the frequent wiping of tears. They have a saddening picture. Others stimulate endless smiles. Some would like to remain unidentified. All in all, I love to narrate stories of the sad, happy and mysterious voices.
