Getting My Fill of Sy-Fy, Science, & Mockery


"Get your fill of sci-fi, science, and mockery of stupid people!"

Apparently my last piece got linked to by a bulletin board of Science and Sci-Fi fans who apparently spend a fair amount of time mocking those they consider stupid. I would like to respond to this guy specifically, but I don't want to register for their board and subject myself to their moderation policies just to try and comment there, so I'll do it here and let the chips fall where they may. The OP that linked to my The End Game of Immmigration post titled his thread: "Evil non-white hawaiian Christian fundie slams science."

Funny, I don't recall mentioning "science" or even mentioning the word at all in that post. So right off the bat, my would be Sy-Fy mocker already clues us in that we may be experiencing problems with reading comprehension. At least one guy pointed that out to the OP:
"Not seeing a mention of science in there, but it's a mmarvellous piece of satire. I'd quote from it but on phone."
Sarcasm and satire permeate my writing. I can't help it, there is much to be mocked of in our modern world. If the average reader doesn't get what I'm trying to say when I write a post like the one I made previously, then perhaps I need to dumb it down a bit so that I can no longer open myself up to the mockery of the likes that are offering such brilliant critiques like the following:  

He seems to believe that because he is (nominally at least) non-white, that entitles him to think that he can't BE racist and thus his call for a Hawaiian only "homeland" is perfectly acceptable. If I'm not reading the situation correctly, then fine. I thought non-whiteness didn't make you immune from mockery for using religiousness to justify your medieval political beliefs. 

You got me so wrong. It's not that I feel entitled to think I'm not racist because I'm (nominally at least) non-white...it's that I'm racist as hell. I'm also a misogynist, misandrist, xenophobe and overall curmudgeonly misanthrope to boot. These are my failings of character, but I am trying to work on it...I promise! Until I fix those personal failings, I will never achieve the true status of evil Christian fundie!

As for the "using religiousness to justify" my "medieval political beliefs..." The "political beliefs" against usury that I was espousing, pre-date the medieval period. It was precisely during the Medieval period that the Christian prohibition of usury was eliminated. It's been all downhill ever since.

Another scientific mockery maker weighs in with his own assessment:

"He goes on and on about usury, the antiquated religious term for interest with regard to loans..."

Usury is an antiquated term? Only to those who fail to consider the bigger picture of the role usury has played in corrupting humanity in all of recorded history.

...and has a "libertarian" in his name so this guy is either bonkers or is writing satire."

Close. I would say it's a little bit of both. Anyhow, after a little debate, the OP reconsiders his initial criticism:

"Perhaps I jumped the gun with the title. Usually these types of articles ARE written by the proverbial "cracker" this one is, in that respect, unusual."

He came so close to getting it....

"AS for the Usury argument, I agree with him (at first blush anyway) that fractional reserve banking is probably NOT the best thing to use as the centerpiece of your economy, it has its uses as a tool in the toolbox, but it shouldn't be the organizing prinicple of your society. (i.e. TBTF banks)"

Oh it's a tool alright. The question that went over you and your fellow scientific mockery squad's head is this: in whose toolbox is it, and just what are they using it for?

"OTOH, I do recognize that without interest, money i.e the fungible proxy for ones ability to think, work, create etc loses pretty much all meaning. For example, if I steal your life savings, keep it for 40 years then return it to you to the penny, have I commited a crime or not? Of course, i stole from you the opportunity to use that money for 40 years, plus the inflationary cost. hence, If I am going to give you something that represents a huge chunk of my life, I'd best get some value out of it!"

The minor mind of this evil blogger trembles in the face of such irrepressible logic. He forgot however his original denouncement of yours truly...I'm an evil Christian fundie! Stealing is a crime because stealing, like Usury, were both called sins by that Jesus guy back in the bad old days of evil fundie-ness.

Thank goodness your fellow compatriot with an avatar showing two men kissing (not that there's anything wrong with that...) has already figured me out:

"Really, I think it's absurd to have such a minor mind as this random blogger put in a place like SLAM." 

Clearly I'm over-matched and out-gunned in intellectual capacity to match wits with these geniuses of scientific mockery. Look at how I'm easily debunked here:

"AS for his arguments about an ethnic homeland for Hawaiians.... it seems to me that ethnic minorities of course have rights, to a point, otherwise we'd be arguing that hat Zimbabwe should still be called Rhodesia."

What argument did I make about an ethnic homeland for Hawaiians? Was it this part?

"Almost no modern Hawaiian today could ever seriously advocate the expulsion of the various races that have taken up permanent residence here. No present day Hawaiian is going to support kicking out their Japanese grandmother or Chinese uncle or Filipino cousin or their Caucasian spouse's family to reclaim Kingdom of Hawaii for the Hawaiians."

Or was it this part?

"It is my own view after considerable study and reflection, that resistance to the coming tyranny of the global elite will be lost if the resistance is based on any group of people trying to recapture the ideal of a heterogeneous, race-based culture that has already been miscegenated out of existence generations ago."

If these brilliant scientific minds intend to continue this devastating mockery, seems to me they need to work on understanding the actual writing of the minor minds they deign to belittle.

"He also sees the mixing of various peoples as "miscegenation" so we can be pretty sure he's against any kind of mixing whatsoever anyway."

What was that old saying about making an ASS out of U and ME? I guess the mere use of the word "miscegenation" is proof positive that I'm against any kind of mixing whatsoever.

 T H O U G H T C R I M E !!

Considering I can count 16 different ethnicities (10 of which are Anglo-Euro) in my own heritage, I must add self-loathing and constant suicidal ideation to my current list of character faults I need to work on, to better reach my goal of evil Christian fundie purity.

This genius then deigns to offer his own view of the evils of miscegenation and any ethnic group daring to even consider the idea of maintaining an ethnic homeland:

"Put in another way, if the Hawaiian people want to make sure Hawaii keeps the traditions alive, I think the solution is to have Hawaii use the state and local protections already in place to make that happen. Have festivals, teach kids, etc. Most democratic countries (by nature of democratic systems) already have such protections and have seen them used, at times, to keep local traditions alive. Though not an "ethnic homeland" it certainly does the same kind of job without all the repugnant baggage that comes with the concept."

Ah, so to believe that Germany should be the homeland of the Germans, that Italy should be the homeland of the Italians, that Japan should be the homeland of the Japanese, or Hawaii the homeland of the Hawaiians carries "repugnant baggage" and it would all better if we all just accepted our assimilation into the global borg of consumerist serfdom and be content to "carry on our traditions" by selling our cultural practices and artifacts at corporate sponsored festivals and educational initiatives for the kids?! Got it.

Praise Science for showing us the answers to cultural perpetuation are protected by Democratic Systems! Why didn't I think of that before? I stand corrected. Ah well. It's all much ado about nothing. The concept of an "ethnic homeland" is well on it's way to extinction....except for one little country in the Middle East with all the Nukes and enough political influence to send American military forces off to war anywhere they see fit....oh darn, I went and did it again. Now you can add "anti-semite" to the list of character failings I need to work on. I'll get to my character improvement efforts soon, I promise!

'I find it hilarious that he can rant at length about non-Hawaiians coming in and muddying up the Hawaiian race and culture, and then in the same breath argue that 'usury' and globalization are bad because they're un-Christian.'

I find it hilarious that these scientific-minded geniuses all interpreted my previous post as a rant. I do the rant thing pretty frequently here, but I wouldn't count that last post as one of 'em. I guess I failed to get to the point across with any semblance of clarity, causing a lot of misinterpretation and confusion amongst the Scientific mockery squad. Let me try to make it easy here. Yes guys, I am certainly bonkers, for you see, I am a Truth Seeker, seeking truth in a world gone mad. I call it as I see it, after much reading, reflection and contemplation. I read all sorts of things to add to the big picture I've constructed in my mind to make sense of this world I was born into.

To the average citizen who has been inured with our mass media's regularly scheduled programming and educational system's indoctrination and behavioral conditioning, the things I write about here certainly appear to be the ravings of a lunatic who needs to be fitted with a straight jacket and left to rot in a padded room somewhere. Indeed, as one of these sciency mockers stated:

"That said, looking at this blog is probably the deepest I've delved down the loony rabbit hole in a while."

Finally! Someone gets it!


For the rest struggling to keep up with the writings of a minor mind such as mine, let me take this opportunity to simplify the point I was trying to get at in that last post: in every corner of the so-called "First world" nations of what was once considered Western Civilization, every single government is actively engaged in the importing of millions of foreigners from completely different cultures and religious backgrounds to inter-mingle with the present populations, which in turn effects miscegenation by enforced proximity of ethnic diversity over the course of generations.

Whenever any of the original residents of any particular race, culture and heritage dare object, they are immediately denounced as racists, ostracized and reviled by the mass media outlets that are following the orders of those who are behind this enforced mass miscegenation program. And the deluge of foreigners continues unabated and unopposed. The goal is to establish a One World government, with the subjects of this global order loyal to no country, nation-state nor ethnic identity nor shared cultural heritage.

The only approved religion will be Orthodox Scientific Consensus-Approved Atheism, observed with strict adherence by the masses of miscegenated serfs, obedient and incapable of forming groups of resistance along no commonly shared bonds or cultural heritage. The only common bond will be to the newly emerging, globalized and homogenized culture of corporate consumerism, dependent on Wal Marts and McDonalds outlets in every corner of the globe for their daily needs, with CocaCola and handheld iSurveillance technology for all.

My observations of mass miscegenation of the multitudes of immigrants to Hawaii already bear out the perfect example of the desired results of the coming Brave New World Order. Hawaii is forever lost to the Hawaiians as an ethnic homeland. The rest of the world is following suit. Hawaii was the proving ground for a program that has now gone global, to do away with Nation States, Cultural pride, and distinctly unique and different societies of humankind. After all, if everyone were a melange of mixed race mutts, then the chimera of EQUALITY will finally have been achieved.

PS - The most ironic thing of this whole debacle? Check out the "quote of the week" that appeared on the top page of the OP mocking me: "A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within." - Will Durant, American historian (1885-1981)

The End Game of Immigration


The World's "First" Multicultural Society? Not quite...

And as he stood there in the late afternoon, in the heart of Honolulu, watching the varied people of the island go past, he had a faint glimmer of the ultimate brotherhood in which the world must one day live: Koreans went by in amity with Japanese whom in their homeland they hated, while Japanese accepted Chinese, and Filipinos accepted both, a thing unheard of in the Phillipines. A Negro passed by and many handsome Hawaiians whose blood was mixed with that of China or Portugal or Puerto Rico. It was a strange, new breed of men Congressman Carter saw, and grudgingly an idea came to him: "Maybe they've got something. Maybe I wasted my time living in the big houses of the white people. Maybe this is the pattern of the future." 
- From the book "Hawaii" by James Michener

Michener's historical-fiction novel, Hawaii, was published in 1959, the same year Hawaii officially became the 50th franchise of USA Inc. It is fitting that Michener ended his epic with an ode to the emergence of the new "golden man" of Hawaii's 20th century melting pot of mass miscegenation and Americanization, since that year marked the fruition of over a century of effort by the business and military interests who worked ceaselessly to overthrow Hawaii's monarchy and status as a sovereign, independent nation.

As a young college student working on a Bachelor's degree at the University of Hawaii, I was a Hawaiian history buff that took as many Hawaiian Studies courses as I could to fulfill my elective requirements. To those familiar with the literature, you will recognize the most prominent names of the authoritative books of Hawaiian history that I have collected and studied over the years - Malo, Kamakau, Fornander, Elbert, Mahoe, Pukui, and Desha, amongst others. The collection of books formed the bulk of my studies as an eager student of the Hawaiian Studies program at the UH. I was primarily focused on the study Hawaiian cultural practices (like marriage customs), religion and history of the people of antiquity. I was inspired to discover the roots of the native part of my indigenous heritage and learn of the practices, beliefs and worldview of a culture that is on the edge of extinction in our modern age.

But the literature focused on Hawaiian antiquity was only part of the coursework of the Hawaiian studies program. A large portion of the curriculum also included study of Hawaii's transition to the modern day, and the history of the Hawaiian monarchy and the upheaval of culture and religious beliefs and eventual overthrow of the Monarchy and eventual induction as the 50th State of USA Inc.

At the time, I was not very interested in this aspect of the Hawaiian Studies coursework, for at that time in my life, I was also a patriotic Americanized neo-con warmonger, imbibing the right wing kool aid to wash down the MMPCP I was taking on a daily basis. At that time, I thought the Republican party and the conservative outlets of the mass media were my friend and ally, while the left wing Democrats and left-wing mainstream media where my enemy. Now I know better.

With my worldview under the influence of such intoxicating substances, I viewed my angry Hawaiian Studies professors as the equivalent manifestations of the left-wing, socialist-progressive minority grievance-mongers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Much of the class lectures and discussions were focused on anti-Americanism and urging we Hawaiian Studies students to become $ocial justice warriors. Many of the lectures and discussions were also infused with the progressive, left-wing, regularly scheduled programming of our Brave New World Order - feminism, environmentalism, collectivism and socialism.

In hindsight, I now realize exactly why Hawaiian Studies was thoroughly infused with the Cultural Marxist's regularly scheduled programming...it's one of the integral features of any and every school and course of study at any State University in USA Inc., since the mass-media and public education curriculum-driven cultural revolution of the 1960's.

While I could understand my professor's anger and desire to de-colonize Hawaii from the imperial American occupation, I also thought that it was unrealistic fantasy and a waste of time and energy to follow the path of the angry Hawaiian Sovereignty Activists so many of my fellow Hawaiian Studies students took.

Besides, several of my Hawaiian ancestors of the 20th century served with honor in the US military, and fought for our country and came home as proud American veterans who did their part to fight for "Freedum, Duhmockrusee and teh 'Murican way!"

It was for their sake that I was often deeply offended by the anti-American diatribes my Hawaiian Studies professors frequently voiced in my classes, though I held my tongue and never spoke up about my oppositional attitude. I was their to learn about my cultural heritage of my ancestors before Western contact, not concern myself with modern political activism.

While a student working on my Bachelor's degree and indulging in as many elective Hawaiian Studies classes as I could to satisfy my elective requirements, I intently studied Hawaiian history of antiquity while only dedicating minimal effort and attention to the 18th and 19th century Hawaiian history, which was the period of vast cultural change and social upheaval and eventual assimilation into the modern zeitgeist of pan-globalization.

Now that I've got my Master's Degree in Politically Incorrect History and Political Science of Globalized Conspiracy from the University of the Autodidact, I have since begun a review of my Hawaiian History books focused on that period of immense cultural change and upheaval...this time with a much different perspective than my formerly brainwashed youth. Many things that were a big mystery when I first read the histories have now been laid bare for me, and I now see these things from a much more lucid and clearer perspective.

As I've come to accept the idea that the conspiracy to effect a Brave New World Order of globalized tyranny of Orwellian proportions is factual and imminent, I've also been able to analyze the playbook THEY have been using for centuries to achieve their satanic goals of global domination. First and foremost, THEY gain their power by gaining control of the government with their primary weapon of usury.

Once their influence is gained by usury, THEY always implement their next move of their social engineering playbook - forced miscegenation to change the cultural zeitgeist of the nation they enslaved with usury, to effect a new ethos of globalized ethnic and cultural homogenization - aka the "pattern of the future" Michener referenced back in 1959.

The subtitle to the TIME magazine cover at the top of this post states - "How Immigrants Are Shaping the World's First Multicultural Society" couldn't be more wrong. Long before the invasion of the impoverished peasantry from Central and South America to the Northern Latitudes of USA Inc. occurred, the Kingdom of Hawaii had already long undergone the exact same process. THEY, the financiers of the sugar plantation owners, where behind the influence on the Hawaiian monarchy beholden to them by usurious debt, to import boatloads of immigrants from all over the world to work for indentured serf wages in the sugar cane fields all over the islands.

The color of the skin of these miscegenation operations are contextual...based solely on the nation-state targeted for assimilation into the Brave New World Order Borg. At the moment, THEY seek to dilute the white skin majority of Western Civilization here in the 21st century. But in 19th century Hawaii, the situation was the exact opposite. THEY sought to inundate Hawaii with a panoply of different races and cultures so as to dilute the Native Hawaiian brownskin stock, in order to cement the disenfranchisement of the native Polynesian of his rightful inheritance to the land.

In short, THEY want the teeming masses of humanity to interbreed over consecutive generations to create a mishmash-melange of ethnic people without a solid cultural identity or national pride in a nation-state homeland. 

Who are THEY that I refer to? Why the same THEY we recognize today - the banksters. The "elite." The "owners of society." As I noted earlier, I have begun reviewing my collection of Hawaiian history, with a particular focus on the transition of the Kingdom of Hawaii to the modern state of colonized incorporation into our Brave New World Order.

The same tools used to overthrow the Hawaiian Kingdom were the same tools that have been used to overthrow the Sovereignty of all the monarchies and other assorted forms of native sovereign governments of the world in the last several centuries - debt enslavement of the government and (by extension the populace at large) through usury that results in the eventual usurpation of power, followed by enforced immigration of different cultures to break up the cultural uniformity of the populace, so that they cannot base an effective resistance to this usurpation of power around National pride and heterogeneous cultural ties that normally bind a community together.

Take a look at any modern day mass gathering of blood-descended Hawaiians and you will see exactly what I'm talking about. The brownskin Polynesian genes have been thoroughly diluted and most Hawaiians have been miscegenated into a melange of indistinguishable ethnic identity. Look at this recent photo from the Kamehameha Schools Song contest -- as every single student has some trace of Hawaiian blood, as it is a requirement for enrollment in that school -- but the pure Hawaiian genetic type has been overwhelmed by the mass migrations and subsequent miscegenation over multiple generations. 



These are the 21st century Hawaiians...some brown, some displaying the "negroid" features of the Polynesian genotype...but most of it has been diluted with a mixture of Oriental, Caucasian and Hispanic genes. If we played "Where's Waldo" with this photo, in which Waldo represented the 100% pure blood Hawaiian, chances are most likely Waldo can't be found in this picture at all.

Not many 21st century Hawaiians that look like this are commonly seen anymore:

House of Kamehameha - 1853

In the 21st century, the Native Hawaiian race has been miscegenated to the brink of extinction. We are now almost completely assimilated into the globalized matrix of the Brave New World Order, and our colonization and subjugation is nearly complete. Mass miscegenation is the end result of the racial and cultural divide and conquer tactics THEY first use when they gain control of the government of any nation throughout history. Almost no modern Hawaiian today could ever seriously advocate the expulsion of the various races that have taken up permanent residence here.

No present day Hawaiian is going to support kicking out their Japanese grandmother or Chinese uncle or Filipino cousin or their Caucasian spouse's family to reclaim Kingdom of Hawaii for the Hawaiians. Thus, multi-generational miscegenation ensures entrenched loyalty to the new system THEY adminster, for which all the various imported races are now dependent on to exist in our present reality.

What THEY have done to Hawaii, they are now doing to the rest of the West.

Many bloggers of these politically incorrect fringes of teh Interwebz have touted the equation championed by the so-called 'race realists' of "neo-reaction" and "the dark enlightenment": diversity + proximity = war. That's simply the short view of the Cultural Marxist's use of multi-cult diversity and proximity as a social engineering tool to divide and conquer.

While enforced proximity serves the divide part of the equation in the short term, as long as the proximity is enforced over the span of multiple generations, the equation turns out quite differently: diversity + proximity = miscegenation and cultural homogenization.

This homogenized culture is no longer defined by race or ethnicity, but by the shared experiences and values of the mixed society that emerges from the blending of cultural traditions and customs by forced proximity over time.

This is the story of Hawaii, and it mirrors the story of the "white race" of America too. The history of American immigration is a history of every type of "white" immigrating from the old world and miscegenating freely in the new world.

In the 21st century, we casually refer to "white race" and the "white majority" or in $JW parlance "white privilege" or "white hegemony." But 16th and 17th century immigrants to America certainly didn't look at it that way. English, French, German, Spanish, Poles, Scots, Irish, Italians, Russians, et al all came in successive waves of migration, with each newcoming group of whiteskins getting the "nigger" treatment by the previous whiteskin migrants.

There was no 'white' solidarity and racial consciousness until several generations of Anglo-Euro-Celtic-Nordic-Aryan-Russo-Mediterranean whiteskins mixed and miscegenated into a melange of paleface uniformity, consolidated and unified by social conflict from proximity with "the others" of red, black, yellow and brown-skinned peoples.

But in another generation or two, these race-based conflicts are going to be a long distant memory, as all the various races mix, mingle and miscegenate. Soon enough we will all be nothing but a mass of intermixed peoples united under the tyranny of a global elite...an elite that are largely united by a specific religious ethos...the literal religion of Anti-Christ.

For everything THEY have done, is driven by the desire to overthrow any culture and society, whether they be composed of brown, black, red, yellow or white skinned people, that is based on the foundational teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.  - Luke 6:34

I've come to the conclusion that distilled down to it's essence, USURY is the anti-thesis of the Gospel of Jesus. It is the wellspring of all the rest of the evils of modernism. It is the root cause of the subversion of Christianity and the evolution of what many are now recognizing as "Churchianity." It is the means for gaining control and implementing their agenda, which includes mass importation of non-native migrants to effect mass miscegenation.

"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws."

THEY have created a global wide system of usury to enslave the masses. To maintain this anti-Christ system of usurious control, THEY are seeking the mass miscegenation of all races, resulting in a globalized society, dispossessed of any sense of heterogeneous heritage or identity, nor any loyalty to a nation-state, but simply subjects to the homogenized culture of secularized mass media consumerism and globalized citizenship, enslaved to the worldwide system of indentured servitude and utterly beholden to this system of total population control.

It is my own view after considerable study and reflection, that resistance to the coming tyranny of the global elite will be lost if the resistance is based on any group of people trying to recapture the ideal of a heterogeneous, race-based culture that has already been miscegenated out of existence generations ago.

THEY are the heirs to the heresy and blasephemy of the ideology of the Pharisees who condemned and crucified the Messiah, for they are not interested in the Kingdom of Heaven, but in usurping the sovereignty and God-given rights of all of mankind, so as to establish their Kingdom of oppression and control here on earth.

The only possible victory in the face of this pervasive, ubiquitous system of Anti-Christ that now spans the entire modern world, is finding our way to the eternal salvation promised by Jesus Christ. For it is His gospel of forgiveness, repentance, atonement and salvation that stands in direct contrast to the ethos of hatred, revenge, envy and greed that THEY are ultimately enslaved to, even as they continually work to enslave us all.

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. - John 8:31-32

By their fruits, ye shall know them.

Remember Thou Art Mortal




Within the last year or so, I've taken two hiatuses from blogging here, one for three weeks and one for well over a month.

This past month, I was on a forced hiatus. My ISP had technical difficulties that involved a 24-7 work crew since the end of September, working to resolve the connectivity issues, giving me and everyone else in my vicinity that retained their services, access to teh Interwebz.

At first, I was apoplectic at the loss of my convenient connection to the world wide web at my domicile. In both instances of my past hiatuses, while I eschewed blogging, I was still plugged in and still reading on a daily basis.

But having no access to teh 'webz at home for almost a month has been quite the kick of cold turkey delerious tremens withdrawal mindfunks. At first, I spent hours compulsively trying to troubleshoot my computer, my network settings, my modem - broadband connection hardware and software, thinking the problem was on my end.

Then I called tech support for my digital corporate access provider in both India and the Phillipines, whereby I discovered my locally sourced portal to teh Interwebz had a total hardware meltdown and had to do a complete rebuild, and that they were so sorry I was experiencing these difficulties, but many thanks for my continued patronage of their services...they would certainly give me as much credit as they were allowed to without consulting upper management at their globally outsourced call center to compensate for any inconveniences I was experiencing due to the loss of service.

After that initial first few days of frustration, I changed my mindset and approached this drastic change of my daily routine (web browsing with my first two cups of coffee every morning), and embraced the opportunity of truly unplugged living.

I began reading actual dead-tree and ink books again. I also got busy taking on an exponential number of projects I've had on the back burner for years now. I truly did not realize how much of a time-suck reading, blogging, commenting and surfing teh Interwebz has taken out of my life until I was forced to log out for so long with no choice, and throw my effort into doing things I had previously constantly and consistently put off. Seeing my handiwork and effort producing concrete results has been rather satisfying, and illuminating as to the amount of time I've been spending in the past decade or so, logged on, plugged in and zombied out in a virtual world of reading and virtual socializing with a panoply of anonymous personalities in cyberspace.

More than a few times I contemplated closing my current ISP account and going with another service provider to regain immediate access to teh Interwebz.

But as time went on, and I found myself immersing myself in productive pursuits and I decided to turn my forced disconnection into a vacation from the dependence on virtual world immersion and just wait until the portal was repaired and my service restored.

After all, my friendly representatives and corporate customer service agents in India and the Phillipines had credited my account, so it's not like I was paying for a service I wasn't getting.

Then I got the call.

Another friend I'd known for years had passed away.

So young. So talented and full of promise. He helped me out more than a few times in the past, and I in turn helped him. He was a good man and we had shared good times. RIP Johnny.

Ruminating on his passing and our shared time together gave me quite the dose of morose contemplation. Being unable to connect to the 'net also brought a bit more clarity to my thought process.

Life is short. Much too short to waste so many hours upon hours staring at a computer screen, reading forums, blogs, news, watching youtube videos and indulging in other online distractions.

I think it's high time I emphasize getting back to cherishing and cultivating the personal, real life relationships with friends and family and all the other folks worth knowing and having involvement with, in the good ole IRL.

Time to get back to developing my talents and skills in my chosen pursuits and artistic expressions.

Time to keep doing what my sudden, unplanned vacation from internet connectivity inspired.

DO instead of reading or viewing ABOUT doing. Vicarious immersion and virtual affirmations are pleasurable pursuits...but learning knowledge in the virtual world and applying it to better your life in the real world does have a diminishing rate of return.

After awhile, your telling yourself that red pill immersion is a way of life and that one needs the constant reinforcement of logging on and reading and writing in the 'sphere of the politically incorrect zeitgeist of these fringes of the Interwebz to maintain the gains received from finding the ugly truth in a world of beautiful lies...but in the harsh light of stark reality, it really is nothing more than an excuse to continue spending time frittered away in front of the glowing screen.

My forced disconnect was the wake up call I needed.

My years spent on the 'net have been rewarding, illuminating, educational, inspirational and inspiring. They've also been indulgent, compulsive, wasteful and frivolous as well. From here on out, I will be consciously and deliberately striving to limit the worst aspects of my interwebz addiction and severely curtail my online time spent displacing productive and intrinsically rewarding behavior.

I regularly deride the palm zombies in my own mind every time I observe the pandemic of automatons compulsively peering incessantly at their smart phones everywhere I go in today's Brave New World Order... but am I really that much better off, spending four consecutive hours on my day off, sitting at my desktop PC reading thirty different blogs, forums, news articles and viewing a cornucopia of YouTube videos?

After all, If I had lived in the time before Al Gore invented the internet, spending as much time in a library reading in isolation and silence, lost in the ethereal clouds of infinite contemplation and rumination...it would undoubtedly have a similar impact on my real world life productivity and interpersonal relationships, as it does sitting here constantly plugged into cyberspace, reading or banging away at my keyboard incessantly, instead of actually living a life worth living.

I'm pretty sure I won't be on my own deathbed, wishing I had spent more time online.
