At will, all Fire (July 17, 2009)

 

            There was a time, not that long ago, and still going strong into the 21st century, some people labeled themselves “White Race”.  Most of them had not skin that white and the color of the eyes were not that blue at all.  Most of them were not that tall: they were downright pigmies; they smelt like pork and were scared of water to wash body and cloth.  A few could read the “Bible” but most were practically illiterate; they were good obeying orders in ruthless military organizations. The one practical task they were proficient in was happy triggers; they didn’t even need to shoot accurately.

            There are horror stories of genocide against the “heathen and uncivilized people” in all of the America, north, middle, and south, and in the pacific Islands.  Those people, the “barbarous”, were indiscriminately shot at and wiped out.  Darwin reported in his “Voyage of a naturalist around the world” that he was shocked when he witnessed the killing of all women above 20 years of age; the soldiers of the expedition in Argentina replied “What else can we do? Those savages have so many babies.”

            M.H. Long reported how the Indians of “Terre de feu” in the extreme part of Argentina (Patagonia) were exterminated so that sheep could be raised and fatten the white “latifundists” of the haciendas. The Scottish Mac Lean was called “Red Pig” by the Indians for the mass slaughter he undertook without any remorse.  The white mercenaries wiped off 400 Tehuelches Indians in the Onas region who were assembled in a night party to seal off an agreement.  Captain Pedro de Valdivia tried to repeat this kind of “business” in Chili but he and all his 120 soldiers were massacred.

            The “famous” authors were no less racist in their reporting or writing.  Jules Verne never missed a good shooting spree story at savages; in “Five weeks in balloon” they are shooting at the African negros from the top of a balloon; in “The children of captain Grant” they are shooting at will on Maoris in New Guinea from the top of rocky hills; in “The travel around the world in 80 days” they are killing the Sioux Indians from the doors of moving wagons; in “From Earth to the moon” they are annihilating the Seminole Indians; in “Mathias Sandorf” the savage Senoussis of Libya are exterminated.

            Jack London reported several such genocides in his Great North and the South Seas novellas. You find a typical illiterate mariner, null in everything except in aiming accurately; he is perched up on the mast of a schooner and just happily never missing a shot; after killing over 100 Islanders he comes down to the acclaim of a hero.

            The genocides to savages resumed in the 20th century.  The military regime in Brazil massacred the “Indians” of the Amazon Forest because they shamed the Nation. The Palestinian people in this century were claimed not to exist and everything was done to efface their identity so that the Zionist movement to get established in Palestine.

            In the summer of 2009 the Israeli army ordered its soldiers to shoot at will in Gaza on the basis that Palestinian civilians, especially children, were all enemies.  The whole western States, backed by the UN, agreed that the liberation of a single Israeli soldier was worth the atrocities that the one million and a half Palestinians in Gaza had to submit to.  The same savage atrocities recurred previously in Lebanon in July 2006; Israel waged war for 33 days to “liberate two dead Israeli prisoners”.  For a single Israeli prisoner the western Sates are backing genocide while over 12,000 Palestinian prisoners without trial for years are fair play in their views.

            Those racist States claim that they will sit on the right side of their God; they will; but their God’s location is in hell.  All atrocities demand revenge; it is the next generations that will pay the bill with high interest.

Hating is good for me (July 19, 2009)

 

            Only in the last couple of days I realized that hating is good for me.  I suspected that I am a hating (not hateful) person since childhood and I tried hard to shovel down this natural tendency in so many layers and varieties of indifference to emotions.  This conscious travail of circumventing my natural tendency was aided by stupid religious teaching of faked synonyms of love, such as loving the neighbors and acting charitable to the ones who diligently made it a point of honor to belittle you and sap your energy and imaginations.

            I realized that hating is good for me when I noticed younger generations promising elder relatives, raising their expectations, and then reneging on their words.  The worst evil is when the younger generations forget completely what they promised to elder people simply because there are “urgent businesses” to satisfy and youth cannot cater for these disposable semi-individuals who are heavy burden on time and energy. A promise is a promise but when it is no longer applicable because done to elderly then it is within the realm of absolute evil behavior.

            I realized that hating is good for me in my twilight; I didn’t invest on my natural behavior or prosecute my natural capabilities when it was worth applying them; I ended up a total failure; the natural consequence of all those who fought off what were in their nature.  Loving, hating, caring, despising, and all those values are as good so long that we know who we are early on, are aware of the consequences, and just control the nasty extremes.  Feeling good is a prerequisite to appreciating feeling bad and not the reverse; and we are indoctrinated since childhood on just feeling bad for our natural tendencies instead of toning them down one notch at a time.

            Hating is not acquired; it is developed by the force of circumstances. If you need to exercise your hating tendencies don’t fine tune it scientifically; elevate it to the statue of art, you sob.

            I realized that hating is good for me but what should I do with my late finding? I lost most of my leverages to applying it efficiently. I cannot express it verbally because it would no longer be hating but just a fleeting state of anger and the confirmation that I am good in nature.  I have to keep my hate a secret, at least wrap it in silence and a state of total indifference.

            With the requisite of emotional faked indifference the cycle is complete: I have reached “closure” but I am not yet satisfied.  Closure would happen when I manage to exercise my hating at least once; we always think that once is enough: that is the real problem with human.

The perpetual rising sun around the globe (July 20, 2009)

I had this urge of witnessing dawn, rising everywhere on earth in 24 hours.  This is very feasible with a versatile landing flying jet.

It does not matter where you start; pick a location on your globe; go there, arrange your visual and sound apparatus and wait for dawn to smile.  Enjoy the scenery, take pictures and video.

Then fly quickly to another destination, land, and repeat the procedure for 24 hours.

You should plan for different variations in scenery. You may start by landing just in vast plains for 24 hours;  in just deserts, on chain mountain tops, in deep valleys, then on water masses such as oceans, seas, and large lakes.

You may repeat this experiment with selecting appropriate man-made monuments and then compare what changed in dawn’s glory.

You may repeat the experiment in various seasons; in various lunar status, in various planet realignments.

Does dawn changes? What dawn would you prefer?

Would you select a location in your retirement to just watch your preferred dawn?

Would that be worth the investment?

Project dawn is very feasible and anyone with deep pocket could do it and then share the beauty of nature at dawn.  It would be advisable to record also the sounds of birds, wild life, the wind, nature awakening to dawn.

Take measurements of many parameters of the climate: who knows? Maybe dawn is different with a combination of environmental parameters since it is all perception after all.

Since we started with dawn, how about studying the setting sun for 24 hours around the globe?  What about noon?
