Unchanging Changes

StuarBrothers
Lord John Stuart and his Brother, Lord Bernard Stuart, 1638. by Anthony van Dyck

 

Some Things Never Change

Aren’t they the brats, these Stuart brothers,
soon off for their jaunt on the Continent?
Jane’s cousins struck a similar pose
at their sending-off party last month.
Just before she drove them down to London
they stood, disdainful, on the spacious porch
that opens to their mother’s well-kept garden.
Jane zoomed her iPod fondly at their sneers.
No lace adorned their high-topped boots,
but in mindset and manner they’re the same.
The bent old gardener, who has trimmed the maze
on Friday afternoons for twenty years,
saw the backpacks, asked, Where you go, boys?
They call him Ho Chi Minh behind his back.
Andrew said, To Asia to look at the monkeys.
Jack snickered. They stayed three weeks.
The Stuart lads were traveling for three years,
but in this modern age of cheap flights, ADHD,
drugs and discontent, things move faster.
Jack got the clap. Andrew got swindled big-time.
When Jane asked about the best part of their trip,
they said there was no best part, Asia sucks.

The Real Thing?

BenchDecor1010402

It’s the real thing, we are told. No it isn’t. It’s not even close. It is a lie. The real thing is water. Boxes, glass bottles, plastic bottles and cans of sodas and waters generate trillions in profits while taxing the atmosphere with tons and tons of CO2 in the production and distribution of the products. It also taxes the water supply using two liters of water for every liter of liquid produced. The soda industry bears heavy responsibility for the obesity epidemic. The light products, the sugarless alternatives, are worse than the sugared variations and cause greater weight increase as well. The artificial sweeteners confuse the body and encourage it to store energy. Deprived of energy the body hunts for food. The sweeteners themselves can cause all kinds of ailments, from minor tiredness to the most serious of afflictions. And, as the costs of packaged water in all forms are many times greater than the costs for tap water, abandoning commercial liquids would benefit the economy of people in general and strike at the profits of the wealthy. “Waterworks,” is the strategy of drinking pure tap water to save money, to save the environment, and to save our health. This should not be taken lightly. Anyone can commit to drinking tap water and encourage others to do the same. It’s a “Just do it” situation.


Water is a basic condition of life. No water, no life. That rule applies to bacteria, beetles, bananas and bald Baptists from Baltimore.”
///
Life needs water, H2O, hydrogen and oxygen. Together with carbon they are needed for every particle of life, whether a building block of protein, the wall of a cell or the links of DNA. You can’t improve water. Whatever you add must be removed by the chemical process of the body to utilize the hydrogen and oxygen. Whatever we do to complicate access to water complicates life. Survival is difficult enough without adding complications.

Insane In Control

FantasyFigures9334

Insane.
Psychopathically criminal.
Mass murderers.
Possessed by wealth
in wealth’s claw.

A smorgasbord of examples illustrate their decadence:
They invaded a foreign country
on a lie
spreading Shock and Awe
and boasting of its terrorizing effect
killing 100s of 1000s of people
injuring many more
creating millions of people
carrying the remains of their homes.
Show me the criminals
who can put that many notches
on their guns.

Insane, psychopathic,
wealth-possessed mass-murderers!
In control.
In control.
They steal from the poor, weak and needy masses
“legally”
and pour the take into the vaults
of a tiny clique of already filthy rich thieves
just like themselves.

They peddle weapons
mega-big weapons.
They peddle dangerous drugs
and additives to animals and food.
They peddle their opinions as news.
They peddle worship of consumption.
They peddle entertainment, sports
and all sorts of diversions.
They peddle fear and obedience
and ignorance
and division and hate.
They peddle the future
—our future and theirs—
that nobody owns.

They are insane
and in control.

Wrap Our Minds Around Our Bodies

FlyIdeas1060548

We should wrap our minds,
our Homo sapiens’ minds,
around “Humanity”
the all inclusive sum of its humans.
We are humans.
Humanity is our body.
Narturally,
the health, strength and wisdom of humanity
concern us greatly.
Humanity must reflect healthy,
strong and wise humans.

Humans are a form of intelligent energy.
Intelligence is nothing mystical.
It’s the ability to handle many choices
to adapt to different and changing circumstances.
Humans can survive in arctic climates,
desert dunes
and everything in between.
We are adaptable to a great amount of varied surroundings.
But not all.

The sperm count in male humans has been dropping drastically
for decades.
How are we going to adapt to infertile males in the near future?

Our children are born with polluted blood
containing micro chemicals and particles
from the air, the water, and in the foods we eat.
How are we to adapt to increased pollution of our unborn?

Allergies among the young have been increasing vigorously.
We will soon not ask people if they are allergic
but what allergies do they have?
We can also talk about skyrocketing frequency of brain tumors,
cancers,
the obesity epidemic
the plague of suicides
or the bouquet of mental conditions
wearing combinations of capital letters.

Diabetes 1 (D1), child diabetes,
is the canary-in-the-mine.
Unlike Diabetes 2,
D1 strikes otherwise healthy children.
Ten years ago D1 was increasing by an alarming 3% worldwide.
Today it is increasing by 5%.
D1 knocks out the ability to produce insulin.
Insulin is a noble protein,
one of the oldest, smallest and most common proteins
among the 1000s produced in the cells of all life.
Insulin regulates the intake of sugar into the cell.
No insulin, no energy to the cell.
Bad. Very Bad.
Today we make insulin chemically
and inject it into the people with D1 daily.
Once the body starts knocking out protein production,
it’s just a matter of time
before the production of a vital protein goes down,
and it can’t be synthesized as with the tiny insulin protein.
Bad. Too Bad.
We should wrap our minds,
our Homo sapiens’ minds,
around “Humanity”.

Homo Profit

Homo sapiens lives matter
as long as they are profitable
and don’t threaten profits.
