Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Intelligence

Thinking by blogging

Then I realized I was going to have to define intelligence.

Yeah. Okay.

What we call intelligence is actually three things that interconnect. Well, at least three things.

First truth

This is the first truth.

We share life and through life we are all connected. We are measured in the lives we touch. We live to manifest and we manifest by living.

Undresses her mind and soul

In an era where women undress their outfits & give their bodies so carelessly, become the rare wild woman that undresses her mind and soul & knows the worth of what she has to offer.

Consider the holiness of your hands.

Consider the holiness of your hands. They are how you do your work on this earth; they are a microcosm of the hands of the Goddess, and can change the world as easily as hers can.

My eighth sex rule

If you care for the other person, if you em>respect them, if you share deep passions with them, then the sex makes all that better.

More bluntly, don't fuck people you don't like. At the very least, sex should include close friendship.

“The Spanish Empire, Silver, & Runaway Inflation: Crash Course World History #25”

“In which John Green explores how Spain went from being a middling European power to one of the most powerful empires on Earth, thanks to their plunder of the New World in the 16th and 17th centuries. Learn how Spain managed to destroy the two biggest pre-Columbian civilizations, mine a mountain made of silver, mishandle their economy, and lose it all by the mid-1700s. Come along for the roller coaster ride with Charles I (he was also Charles V), Philip II, Atahualpa, Moctezuma, Hernán Cortés, and Francisco Pizarro as Spain rises and falls, and takes two empires and China down with them.”

Situational vortex

Before you can do one simple task, you have to do another task that gives you what you need to do the first. And before you can do the second, there is a third and fourth that you really should take care of.

Obsessed with Christians

I think we'd be better off defining ourselves by what we are rather than what we are not.

To borrow from Commoner, Bonewits and a few others, everything and everyone is connected. That's a mindset I'd like to see more. It's also fairly alien to the "us versus them" that monotheistic dualism engenders.

“The Atlantic Slave Trade: Crash Course World History #24”

“In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color.

Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life? In a desperate attempt at comic relief, Boba Fett makes an appearance.”

“The Columbian Exchange: Crash Course World History #23”

“In which John Green teaches you about the changes wrought by contact between the Old World and the New. John does this by exploring the totally awesome history book "The Columbian Exchange" by Alfred Cosby, Jr. After Columbus "discovered" the Americas, European conquerors, traders, and settlers brought all manner of changes to the formerly isolated continents. Disease and invasive plant and animal species remade the New World, usually in negative ways. While native people, plants, and animals were being displaced in the Americas, the rest of the world was benefitting from American imports, especially foods like maize, tomatoes, potatoes, pineapple, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and manioc. Was the Columbian Exchange a net positive? It's debatable. So debate.”

My comments on the “Billy Graham rule”

I used to think that this was a silly thing Christians used to hide their own insecurity. And if I had my druthers, I'd put this is a caution box with the red banner and be done with it.

“The Renaissance: Was it a Thing? - Crash Course World History #22”

“In which John Green teaches you about the European Renaissance. European learning changed the world in the 15th and 16th century, but was it a cultural revolution, or an evolution? We'd argue that any cultural shift that occurs over a couple of hundred years isn't too overwhelming to the people who live through it. In retrospect though, the cultural bloom in Europe during this time was pretty impressive. In addition to investigating what caused the Renaissance and who benefitted from the changes that occurred, John will tell you just how the Ninja Turtles got mixed up in all this.”

“Change your perspective.”

The WebTree itself is the wyrd or orgone weave that permeates and connects everything. Depending on perspective, it might be a web, a tree of life, a labyrinth, or found in the curves of a Celtic design. Understanding the connections and the tensions are the key. Sometimes the polarities and connections are obvious.

Key concepts include cycles, dynamic balances, flux points, the Wheel of the Year, weirds and the Knot.

Keep a notebook. Travel with it, eat with it, sleep with it. Slap into it every stray thought that flutters up into your brain. Cheap paper is less perishable than gray matter, and lead pencil markings endure longer than memory.
