Womblenet and Googlefied

Standard

Underground, Overground I’m Womblenet free
I can do anything, cause Google-fied me,
This is my kind of life and no one sees me
I just like to pull the strings, of morons and their kind
Nobody can see the mess, I always leave behind

I can do whatever I please I’m Womblenet free
And no one can stop me, cause Google-fied me,
This is my kind of life and no one sees me
Tweets that make you wonder and one’s that make you scream
Those are all the Tweets that show, everywhere I’ve been

When I wake-up in the morning and switch on my TV
It’s just so plain and boring, so I Womblenet for free
If I could maybe change the world I’d give everything for free
Nobody should ever suffer or ever have to strive
We have to share the duty and keep our world alive

So come on everybody and sing this song with me
Womblenet, Womblenet, Womblenet for free
We can change the hearts and minds, cause Google-fied me
Use these tools for good and kind, don’t sit there mystified
Use them all to save the world and the future of mankind.

The Chicken or the Egg?

Standard

What came first? The Tarot or Playing Cards.

I am often asked this question and it is very difficult to answer as there really isn’t an answer, purely because, nobody actually knows unless they could travel back in time and solve this puzzle. Many, many writers and scholars of the subject believe they have the answer to which came first and can prove it but then along comes someone else who says they can disprove it and this will carry on until the end of time. That is, unless time travel is invented and I am pretty sure that nobody will travel back in time just to find out who was right and who was wrong.

Therefore I am going to give a some historic facts and theories to try to put peoples minds at rest and let them decide for themselves.

Let’s go back a few thousand years to the Egyptians, Indians and Chinese peoples of our plant. Many of the Taroists of the 19th century believed through their own research along with fellow colleagues of the time that some kind of symbolism was being used in religion, spiritualism, magic and other occult systems and it was also used for the foretelling of the future, things to come, and fortune. Now as we all know, nobody can see the actual and factual future because if they could then they would be very rich and famous, and certainly rule the human race. This is fact and undoubtedly reality. I am a realist and believe in nothing except the truth, facts, seeing, touching and communicating with reality. If I honestly believe something works to improve someones life in any way then I would use it. Back to the subject in hand. I said that I would give you some historic facts, well I could copy and paste thousands of words but I’m not, instead I will give you as many links as I know of that will explain how and where Tarot originated. These links will give you the information required to not only understand the theories these occultists believed in but also how they themselves argued amongst themselves ultimately trying to be the first one who could prove that they had found the answers to all the questions.

Lame Politicians

Standard

What do you do with a lame politician?

The UK seems to have acquired a mountain of lame MP’s. Gutless, timid and without backbones. We have also lost our political leaders. Is this something to do with climate change, the way our wildlife is disappearing on a daily basis. Nope! It’s mainly to do with selfishness, greed and materialistic values. Of course it’s time for a change and try to get back to traditional and fundamental values. We don’t need to turn back time, we just need to stop moving in the wrong direction. Stop, step to one side and look back at all the destruction we have caused. Instead of politicians blaming all those around them for the mistakes they make they should take responsibility and admit they’re wrong. Simply put, they have become lame.

What is needed for this country is somebody who is fresh, young, intelligent and bright, strong leadership qualities and knows what they’re doing. In the mean time and to answer the question above, ” what should we do with lame politicians “?

The same as they do with lame animals………

Politalk

Standard

Politalk is the word that describes how politicians talk and what they say.
Its full definition is:-
Politalk means to talk in ever increasing circles so as to avoid any factual or truthful answer to any question that is asked them. Avoidance is the main reason Politalk was invented in the first place and by repeating the same answer by rephrasing slightly, each time it allows the increase of total confusion to be injected into any conversation or answer as and when appropriate. In other words, why not use as many words as possible when only two is needed.
And those two words are, bull and shit.

Basically, very few of the general public actually understand what politics and politicians are all about and when a politician is asked a question on anything, they usually answer in Politalk

Looking to the future

Standard

The future looks dim. I just can’t see any way forward, now that the UK government has failed miserably to produce BREXIT. I do see, politicians falling on their swords and anarchism looming on the horizon. Can or even will someone take hold of the reins and guide us away from the cliff edge and back on course to where we should’ve been on the 29th of March. The snowball is rolling down the mountain and gathering speed quite quickly, destroying everything in its path and there is still a long way to go.

The majority of people that I have read for say that I can predict the future but I say that I can’t. I don’t have visions, see people or talk to spirits and I don’t get voices in my head telling me things. All I do is accumulate the evidence, have strong feelings and use my intuition. As I always say, “nobody can predict the future”, if they could, they would win the lottery every week and be the richest person in the world. I’ve yet to see that happen.

I do see certain individuals and groups taking advantage of this precarious situation that we have placed ourselves in at this present moment in time. Too much greed, corruption and selfishness are the diseases of society and nobody in power has the will, leadership qualities or backbone to put a stop to it. ” I’m alright Jack” and “Carry on regardless” are the two phrases that define our society these days. The country is in a state of flux and its stability seems a long way off.

I believe a small group of like minded people will come together and lead us out of this chaos, I just hope that they lead us in the right direction and not into a period of self destruction that will leave us with an even bigger mess to sort out.

How Accurate is Divination? – Part 2

Standard

It’s not often I get the old soapbox out, yawn! Just sometimes you have to try and stop the onslaught from that ubiquitous and meandering lava-flow that some of us may attribute the words, “I told you so. Now do you believe me!”.  Do you find yourself thinking words like, coincidence, fate, destiny, deja vu, fluke and so-on, especially when you can’t explain something that’s just happened, has been said or thought of? Of course you do! Everybody does and why shouldn’t they? There is nothing wrong with accepting that sometimes, we don’t have to try and explain, what may or may not have just happened. What might be an important fact to point out here, is that whatever we just experienced and in whatever shape or form, there is no human or logical, day-to-day, earth-dwelling reason how it can be explained.

So should we accept this, what might be termed as, phenomena, and put it all down to, ‘The wonders of the universe’, ‘Gods influence or intervention’, ‘Alien activities’ or simply, ‘It didn’t happen’ and move on in blind ignorance.

….to be continued.

Is our Planet fighting back?

Standard

Is our planet fighting back?

Chaos theory is a field of study in applied mathematics, with applications in several disciplines including physicseconomicsbiology, and philosophy. Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions; an effect which is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect. Small differences in initial conditions (such as those due to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for chaotic systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general.[1] This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved.[2] In other words, the deterministic nature of these systems does not make them predictable.[3][4] This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.

Chaotic behavior can be observed in many natural systems, such as the weather.

I’m not a scientist, economist, biologist, or philosopher and yet I can sense something BIG is going to happen soon to our planet and more than likely its inhabitants too. With world-wide communication becoming ever more instantaneous and with instant access to everything and anyone, we have enabled ourselves to become a global community, and yet we are unable to act like one, especially in the more developed countries.

Materialism, selfishness, and greed has superseded compassion, regard for each other, and dignity and so maybe, just maybe the planet that we all share and inhabit is starting to feel this wave of destruction heading its way and is fighting back.

It’s as if all the unrest in Africa and the Middle East have become the butterfly’s wings and the earthquakes in Japan, the tornadoes in America just might be the effects of those wings fluttering to the point of destruction of the whole planet.

I’m not a doom-and-gloom merchant, I’m just a realist. If what I can feel and sense from all the news reports and television coverage day in and day out, something has to give very soon.

RANTS and RAVES

Cybee’s Rants and Raves

I’ve decided to set up the above named category so that I can at least respond to some of the issues and areas of life that really get under my skin, especially those areas of contention or so-called grey areas that just don’t sound right, even the ones that just need a little of the bias knocked out of it.
