SF:3D 18.5.18

SCI-FI B-MOVIE TRIPLE BILL


I watch sci-fi. 

Really into it. 

Almost (but not quite) exclusively it's what I watch when I watch a movie. I am more often dissatisfied that I have seen as much of it as I can get my hands on than I am excited about something new coming out. Somehow, these three movies all from 2017 slipped by me un-noticed.  It is possible I saw one or more of them and simply forgot. That does happen, what with the custom neural re-wiring (amalgamemory™) I am involved in. So this weekends project is to make reviewing these a mini-project while making 3D architecture in another window. (link to follow)

I am initially visually attracted to Black Hollow Cage and InControl because they both feature the exact same symbolism SMALL BLACK CUBE * with its planetary associations with Saturn which David Icke is warning us about, statues of it existing at all the Illuminati HQ's and real home video footage of black cube spaceships exiting hyperspace in the skies of our planet. I wrote more about this topic HERE.


The third movie in this tryptic MindGamers is put in there only for comparative purposes with In Control because it has the same theme. Those are both pet projects wherein the screen-writer is also the director while BHC has a bigger team.


* NERDGASM: The Black Cube is also mentioned in Frank Herberts Chapter Dune sextet, Darwi Odrade makes a sculpture of it inspired by both Van Gogh's Chaumes de Cordeville à Auvers-sur-Oise and a Dunetech allowing an art appreciator to experience the artist creating the work in the first place (application of every brush stroke and the feelings deciphered from it) although I cannot recall whether it was Heretics of Dune or ChapterHouse Dune.

MY REVIEWS

[TBC]


BLACK HOLLOW CAGE

theme: isolation, individual internal, learning to trust,




INCONTROL

theme: Remote Electronic Mind Control

She is heavy breathing.
Women heavy breathing means either sex or panic.
Sometimes exertion/exhaustion too.
All three of these are summarized by various levels of; thrill.
All three are vulnerable, states of openess.

Opening scene, the middle of nowhere, a blonde woman crying for help into her phone, most certainly she is not in control. Will she become a Sarah Conner / Eleanor Ripley by the end of the movie?

Visual image of an exotic looking computer chip in a small foam lined case, straight out of ShadowRun.  She speaks into Marks answerphone: "I don't know whats going on." 

She is not the best actress, certainly not the same league as aforementioned feminist idol superheroines. To be expected from a lower budget movie than those so it is unfair to compare. The tone of her voice sounds like she is acting, more than it sounds like she genuinely

The viewer is being asked to suspend disbelief and flow with her narrative.

Unsure what level to accept that at.
Is she a femme fatale or a damsel in distress?

What are we being introduced to here? The computer chip means big business means murders and conspiracy. It feels stolen or that she is its creator, on the run from murderous thieves. The viewer projects this because it is standard fare for these situations. Conjecture. Or am I cynical?  The necessity to keep an open mind and accept her narrative for the story to make sense as a reality, bypasses all of that.

We are being programmed. Clearly, all the symbolism works on several levels to establish this.

Then blah blah cut to a scene with a mansplaining young professor type and a different blond girl, jogging. Next scene, next layer of onion ring, same symbolism. Blonde woman running. She happens to be the exact clone copy of a college girl I shared an interesting bedroom scene with in my late teens.

Now I am suspending my disbelief because this has suddenly gotten personal: barb 1.

But this girl, she does not contact two unavailable people on answerphone asking for help, instead she looks at two happy people (equivalents) and is more insular. Close-up shot of her body language 'accepting something internally'. She uses a computer (same symbol as "the chip" in previous onion layer), but is not doing so well in her college assignment (C- grade for her essay, the lowest possible 'pass').

Basic insect level coding. It works. That chip symbol is powerful.

Perhaps now is the time to explain that the first blonde girl, the lost one, followed up during what I described as 'blah blah' by wrecking her car; flipping it over on the only other object in the middle of nowhere which just so happened to be a perfectly placed ramp, the sort always found lying around on roadsides in the middle of nowhere.

The young lecturer guy was talking about how mobile communication technologies have resulted in a generation who do not understand 'being alone' the way the older generations did. Nowhere is dangerous. You flip cars over there and probably die.

[break time]

"Panopticon. It plays on the idea that if you believe you are being watched, you behave differently. It was a prison design. All the prisoners were around it, there was a guard in the middle that would monitor, but; none of the prisoners knew who was being watched." Samantha

Panopticon: strangely the name of a band I was in during my twenties and a series of graphic novels produced as a tie-in (Panopticomics). Suspension of disbelief getting personal: barb 2.

"If there were no consequences, what would you do differently? If no-one was watching?"  Mark

"As you say." He added; throwing the perception back into her court by emphasizing: these are her words and she is self-responsible for her own decision making. These intelligent characters adept at a form of deflection which highlights the other persons sense of importance. The story so far is underlaying these layers of perception.

Wait a minute ... is this the same Mark from scene one who car-crash-blond left a desperate message on his answerphone? This time he answers his phone despite it not ringing, explaining to whoever the scans came back fine.

Since the movie has made this personal twice, arguably three times by working on these planes: I feel both permitted and objectively obligated to take a liberty of inserting my own personal dogma here:


The Creed

Accountability is Credibility.
Responsibility is Respectability.


Samantha receives parking ticket. Not having much luck with their vehicles, these blondes. She goes home. Mark calls. He has been thinking about what she was saying. There is something she should come and see.

Jenny's place. Mark and Jenny introduce Sam to Victor the confident college drop out. They have all heard about her prison essay. In Jenny's room is a BLACK CUBE with cables coming out from beneath it. Victor stole it from the university two months ago. Jenny is hooked up to it like sleeping beauty. 

"She's very much awake." Mark

"Some sort of virtual..." Samantha

"It's a little more complicated." Mark
"she's hooked up to this thing, and she's what?" Samantha
"She's somebody else." Victor

Mark turns to Samantha and says; "Jenny."
Samantha writes on a piece of paper: Hi Sam. It's me, Jenny.
Samantha steps back, reads the paper in her hands.
"What the hell? You did that?" Samantha
"No. You did." Victor

"There's something called 'taking a ride' we like to do to get to know somebody." Mark

"You can just go along. How they're feeling can affect your judgement. How they hear, see, feel things. Just focus on where you want to go. The person has to be nearby that you hone in on. Your mind will do the rest. There are certain limitations. Like, its still you in there. You can't look back on what they know, there's no control of memory." Mark

I told you: this is ShadowRun.

From this point onward, the movie can become any number of potential story lines.

Samantha tests the technology. We see a girl sitting at her family dinner table feeling really weird, and a guy asking if she is alright. The group of four psychonauts discuss next sex and riding on the other gender's body. It's pretty much what they mostly get up to with the amazing device. Wouldn't you?

I'm a leave writing any more for this movie review right here.



MINDGAMERS

theme: collective consciousness, control, 

Researching available screenshots in google I recognized that I did already see this movie. It is stylish and confusing. It deserves to be a series, to give it space to develop characters and ideas more, without unnecessary filler but to do justice to the great ideas it contains.

At The Feet Of The Sphinx


Compare these two photographs.

You are looking for common architectural features.

Here is a clue:






Take Note of how Egyptian Pyramids have a distinct style, American Pyramids ghave a different distinct style, and both of them evidently feature the very same motif (which for want of a better description we shall call "Sphinx Feet" at their base).



Here are links to those videos:

In  Extremely Advanced Ancient Civilization Evidence That Will Leave You Absolutely Bewildered video;

At approx 7 minutes, is footage from the Isle of GOZO (Ggantija in Malta) from 11,000 years ago.

I am sure that's the ancient name for the demon in Ghostbusters.

The video clearly shows dwellings made of stone, complete with alcoves

capitalism

CAPITALISM

“We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.”  Ursula K. Le Guin

Usury is a crime against God.
When we discuss usury we usually refer to it in reference of capitalism.
Usury is not only about money. Capitalism is not only about Money.
It is a mindset based on exploitation.
A trap, a noose, to capture into one more energy than one is exerting.
It is not an equality based strategy.
It is however a sin against God.

Non-monetary capitalism requires an example.

There are so many possible examples that we take it for granted as ‘normal’. These examples are invisible to us and when highlighted by being pointed out to us and having it explained, people react defensively by shouting down any perception that we might be erroneous in our behaviour. 

People attempt to decry and debase anybody who is pointing out that they have made a compromise with society to endorse the assumption that the way we do things is not wrong. A hundred years ago it was normal and acceptable to own slaves. So ingrained into a cultural mindset that anyone who spoke about how wrong it was, that it was inequality, was regarded as crazy and dangerous to the infrastructure.

Example: She desires Attention from friends and strangers. Attention is energy.

She tells a story about how upset she is that the man she fell for turned out to have been schizophrenic and therefore, with his mental difficulties, unsuitable as a life partner. She still cares for him but not with the same hope that she once did they might settle together as a family unit. Her story is based on a real person. He is not there to defend himself against the allegation that he is schizophrenic.

People believe her and gave her sympathy, tell her that she has a good heart for caring about such an unfortunate soul as the man who she had a brush with and a narrow escape from. Degrade the dirty, sweep it under the carpet, we live in a better society than one where crazy people l even exist. Good people pity unfortunates but do not wish to entangle with them. Social stigma against the mentally ill.

The guy is being capitalised upon. She is capitalising on him. She is exploiting others by exploiting him, by slandering his reputation. She gains from it. He is the fall guy.

She requires validation from others who tell her that she is a good person. Why? Were she, she would not need such validation. She would know it from inner connectivity with divinity. Good people do. She is imbalanced, living in sin (without divine connection). Seeking to fill in the painful hole in her, the missing thing, she requires others to temporarily reward her by listening to her problem and rewarding her with pretty words. They comfort her. It distracts her from the suffering. It might help her to reconnect with divinity by persuading her that she deserves such connection. Equally it might further distract her from achieving that connection. Balanced union within self.

The other people later encounter the man she had described to them. They recognise him from the visual description and are wary, making excuses to leave fast because they do not want to be contaminated by involvement with a crazy person. From his perception, he has no knowledge that he has been victim of slander. He finds their behaviour unusual, their attitude toward him derogatory. People who, had they bothered to get to know him on a one on one basis, would find him normal, pleasant, interesting and intelligent, with many shared interests. Instead he is left feeling lonely, a little confused about the anti-social attitude of people around here, and he decides not to visit this particular community centre again because the people there are creeps.

This is commonly called gas-lighting, a term named after a 20th century movie where a man persuades his wife that she is going crazy by altering the amount of gas going into the lights, so that the light level varies. He tells her that there is nothing wrong with the lights, that it is all in her imagination, that she is delusional. Once she begins to question her own sanity and believes that she is delusional, instead of trusting her own senses, she is no longer fully functional as a reliable person. After that that point, not before, she is technically insane (insanitary, it means dirty, polluting, toxic).

The problem stems from the singular point where a person puts their faith into trusting words by other people to be the reality, instead of trusting your own senses to be the reality. If a person can persuade a majority that blue is red, they will see blue and call it red. They will reaffirm to one another that blue is red by collectively agreeing that to be the case. Books, movies, educational systems, will be built to strengthen the indoctrination, all the time undermining the reality, the truth. They will call that delusion ‘normality’. Anyone who says, “no thats not red; thats blue”, they will describe that person as antisocial, insane and a problem maker. Compromising with Society necessitates that we do this all of the time. Society can not function without it. 

Humans however, can function without society. The historical precedent is that we function better without delusion. When the delusion becomes mainstream, that is the zombie apocalypse. You are in the middle of it. That you do not recognise this to be the case is a symptom of it, proof that you are one of them. Your initial reaction will be to laugh and reject it because the foundation of your reference system is not connectivity with the divine harmony. Your internal reference system is the delusion arising from compromise with society. It has turned you into one of its zombies. You are an agent for it. To undo that level of indoctrination requires a lot of work. Society if it can get away with it will turn against you and label you as insane, as a dissident.


“If you are not part of the solution, you are the problem.”




The Questioner of Loaded Questions.

He requests evidence from anybody at all that he is schizophrenic.
Nobody can provide this.
His actions are not those of a schizophrenic.
Other people say that he hears voices.
How would they know such a thing? He makes no such claim.
Other people pressure him and demand to know more about what it is like for him to hear voices. So he tells them that voices pressure him and make him feel uncomfortable. That they try to control him.

What he means by this is that the person asking the question spoke using their voice. He did not want to reply because it is a loaded question, an assumption, they are projecting onto him their fallacy that he hears voices and demanding to know about it. They are demanding he play their game, a game called “I say you are crazy, verify it.” He does not want to play that game with them. But they are pressuring him and attempting to control his reaction.

Hearing the voice asking the question he replies; ‘the voice is pressuring him and making him feel uncomfortable’.

Nobody has mentioned whatsoever that these are hallucinatory or figments of his imagination. They assume that by their not explaining this distinction, he will also make the logical jump that they are all agreeing they are discussing about the same undisclosed thing which they are goading him into. The questioner does this because of a social convention in which when discussing these matters it is normal to use the key phrase “hearing voices” to indicate “hallucinations” as opposed to the technically correct phrase “hearing imaginary voices.” These are two distinct entities. He replies directly to the words actually asked, because he does not accept to replace one with an undisclosed other. To do that would be insane.

The questioner goes away from the meeting feeling verified that the guy they have just spoken with is delusional and hears imaginary voices. He however goes away from the meeting knowing this  about the whole situation laughing at the delusion within which the aggressive questioner lives without them even recognising it. He has told it straight and told the truth. It is the questioner who has changed the context of the conversation from what was actually said to mean something different from what was actually said. That is manipulation. That is capitalism.

They have gone away having achieved more from it than was actually occurred at the time, because of their fiction, to the detriment of his reputation. This is why he does not trust these people. He does not accept modernity because he is spiritual and intends to align with the actual truth. He is not responsible for their confusions. Although when they do communicate with him, he does not further their confusions by conceding to put energy into a delusional version of the world. He tells it straight.

Their books say this: his lack of trust in modernity is a form of psychosis.
The book he is reading says this:
To know truth you must be truth.
To be truth you must align with truth.

There is a lot of guidance in the holy texts regarding how to behave when dealing with sinners. Sin literally means without; without ‘god’, without holiness, without spirituality. In essence; without Truth. You do not have to believe in ‘god’ to accept the wisdom of this. You do not have to believe in ‘god’ to recognise what is meant by it. It applies whether you believe in ‘god’ or not.  The very first question you should ask is “what is God?” Best answer so far: that Truth is the fundamental harmonic of the universe, of Life.

So many people compromise with society that they lose their connectivity with the divine. It is not always a conscious choice, although at some level you face up to it. Right here and now, face up to it. Am I going to go onward in Truth or in Sin? To accept confusion over reality, or to accept truth over socially re-affirmed delusion. This is not to persuade you that reality is god and sell you a religion. Far from it. It is the opposite. To sin is not a specific act of sin (and there are many healthy activities commonly described by society as sinful) but rather to go about ones activities from a godless base, an unholy frame of reference. To act in accordance with that mind which is without spiritual awareness.

Usury is the major common sin.

Sex Check List

Checklist For Sexual Compatibility


QUESTION ZERO: 

 Have you/they had an STD check 
since the last time you/they had a sexual encounter? 



SECTION ONE - YOU

First three simple questions.

1. Do you want sex ?  y / n

2. Could you fancy this person ?  y / n

3. Would you have sex with this person ?  y / n

Three “yes” ’s = do it
Two or less “yes” ‘s = do not do it

1 If No: there is something wrong with this person, they are disconnected from their Humanity.
2 If No: no problems, biological instinct is what it is.
3 If No: (when 1 & 2 are “yes”) this person is inhibited by a psychosis.

That’s it for keeping things simple.


SECTION TWO - OTHERS


The ‘three yes vs less-than-three-yes’ guide (section one) does not apply to the following (section two) because it gets more complicated.

The following questions are what happens when you start compromising what you want sexually with who you want to be known as in the community. Balancing your internal desire with your external image. Manipulation ‘by you of’ and ‘of you by’ community.

The counterpoise to this situation is the rhetorical question:

X. ’Who is it I am in bed with / closest to / should mean the most to me ?’

This question has not been numbered because it is too personal to include as data for this manuscript, although it is imperative the individual should ask it of themselves regularly. All other questions are simple y / n responses.


4. Would my friends accept me having sex with this person ? y / n

The answer to this is ALWAYS ‘no’ unless you have real friends who do not mix ‘sex and slavery’.


The next two questions are about hypergamy. They balance self-worth with social-status, clinically basing decision-making only on the artifice of social structure while ignoring the complexity of Human needs, personality compatibility, physical preference. Hypergamy reinforces the delusion of class system maintained by active belief in it. Typically this is financial or perceived power thus such relationships are about power and wealth, not about emotional and individual value. That includes yours. Hypergamy elevates manipulation and does not accept emotion as a relevant factor, resulting in strategic yet emotionless or at best shallow sexual relations. That does not result in happiness, it usually results in divorce. This underlaying trust issue categorically defines such relationships.

5. Would sex with this person improve my position in society (is it prestigious) ? y / n
If Yes do it.

6. Would sex with this person decrease my position in society (is it detrimental) ? y / n
If Yes do not do it.


The next question is the main one you need to answer.
It affects every aspect of relationships.

7. Does this person mix up sex with slavery ? y / n

If Yes, either ‘fuck&chuck’ or simply do not have sex with them at all.
If No, keep it going as a long-term relationship.
Hold onto it because true equity/equality is precious and rare, to be treasured.


8. What Slavery Is and is Not

Is slavery: expectancy of undisclosed behaviour ?
Is slavery: expectancy of routine behaviour ? 


If you can not answer these questions (8A and 8B), you are not ready for a long-term relationship.
That does not mean you are not ready to have sex.
Fully answering these two questions SHOULD be an ongoing topic of conversation between yourself and partner/s.
Develop a mutual understanding of what exactly is meant by ‘undisclosed and routine behaviour’.
Discuss and communicate what is meant by ‘communication’.


SECTION THREE - CASTES

Tribal Attitudes May Vary.

HUMANITY asks these questions:  1 3 7 8

CULTURE asks these questions:  2 4 7 8

SOCIETY asks these questions:  3 4 5 6

Society represses these questions:  7 8

Proxy Kill

Proxy Kill


"I will not hurt any student, and I will protect all learners from harm. I will remember that there is art to learning as well as science, and that caring, empathy, social, emotional and physical development are as critical as intellectual achievement. I will apply, for the benefit of each student, all available instructional supports and resources, in the knowledge and conviction that we each learn differently, and that everyone can learn." socratic-oath-for-educators



Socrates, the "father of western thinking" was forced by controlling society to drink poison for their perceived crime of corrupting youth.



0. pre-med
In the first decade of the 20th century, Snake Apple Tree wrote a serial of short stories entitled The Murder Chronicles (aka New Murder Fiction). 

It was published incomplete to www.snakeappletree.co.uk

This has nothing at all to do with;  Liang Yaosheng's works of same title or R. Barri Flowers works of same title or the-line-up's interactive fictions of same title or anybody else using the same title which quite clearly is collectively a shareware title under no formal copyright property. 

Snake Apple Tree's serial as a complete includes both the final (unpublished) chapter(s) and also other short stories not included in the published core. They were not published due to their personal nature. The serial is billed as being semi-fictionalized accounts of true stories. They are tales from the underground; official records always show very different versions of events. This is because the official versions are cover-ups by a corrupt society.


The following are chapters of the final novella (Proxy Kill) of the serial. 

IN MEMORANDUM. 




1. basis

Manufacturing a collective operational base which holds a paradigm and enforces it upon target. 
The paradigm enforces depression upon the target of such severe intensity that the target commits suicide.

Everybody says "its a shame" and enjoys their suffering of the loss of othe target from the collective. 

In animal species we observe this behavior. Example, a murder of crows (collective noun for a flock of crows in English language is 'murder') will peck to death the weaker members of the flock, increasing the amount of available food scraps to scavenge for the stronger members. This maintains the health of the flock while being a bitch for the target. 


2. control

Trying to control the target. 
Enforcing a false paradigm, establishing it in the mind of zombi's as the officially endorsed collaborative agreement, the dominant narrative.
Instead of respecting nature, intuition, spirit. 
Aboriginal map of reality has three circles: the world of nature, the world of Spirits, the world of Humans. The world out of balance is the world which accepts only Humans as valid and Nature to be exploited, and dismisses the world of Spirit as make-belief.
Shaman integrate it as Truth. 

The excuse to protect 'vulnerables' from those who can and want to help.
The result is: 
Without help, the vulnerable kills him/her self.


3. Luci

Luci was 14. 
I was 28. 

I saved up and bought a Japanese fretless blue electric bass guitar. 
Luci saved up and bought a red electric fender guitar. 

The first time we met was in the street, both in the glow of yielding our tools which were finally in our possession, on that first day of ownership. 

Bang! 

There is magick in instruments. 
There is even more magick in music.
There is magick in the universe to have put this coincidence together. 

We are but cogs in an intergalactic, multi-dimensional machine the mechanics of which are far, far beyond our understanding. The very best we can hope for is to recognize some small glimpse of this, through the divine worshipful connection of, when we trust our intuition, when we let music flow through us without mind getting in the way, when we have sex. These are the three principles of divine worship.

Luci was dark and worshipped dark gods with blood and sex magic.
She had a shrine to black metal and goth. 
She had candles and spoke a language I have not heard in several incarnations. 
A young witch coming of age, wise far beyond her years and obsessed with Jungian Shadow. 

Luci and I did not have sex. 
We did play music.
We did talk about psychology. 
Luci was depressed and cutting herself deeper each time. 

I had recently finished doing counseling nvq2 and frustrated that the red-tape limitations of doing it professionally for money through the state would make any real attempt at actually fixing somebody, not possible. The girl needed emotional and mental support, she needed a hug. She needed a fuck but being only 14 in a nation which kills paedophiles and where the age of consent is 16, we did not go there. We could have and it was a potential between us. Some other lucky brat would have to sort her out that way. I proved my parental responsibility. We behaved in accordance with social conformity despite occasionally facing down natural instinct together. 

Our relationship was mostly defined by music tutor and counselor. I lent her cd's and guitar effects boxes. We both used the same software, so I taught her some of the tricks I have learned with it. It helped her to focus on creativity instead of self-destruction. Her family members who got to know me and who trusted me remarked the positive influence I was having on her. She stopped cutting so often. Her scars began to heal. 

The prejudice twats did not like me sniffing around a vulnerable minor. 
They did not like the age gap. 
They beat me up in the street. 
They knew where i lived.
I stopped visiting her. 
That was my mistake. 
She nose-dived.
She cut too deep.
She dead now. 


4. Popi

After the tragedy of Luci I traveled to get over it. 
I trusted my intuition and I went in that direction, regardless. 

I found myself in the Valley. 
From the outside, the Valley is the last retreat of free people in Britain.
It does have an internet site and it is described on there as;
"Survival lifestyle"
There are no facilities.
It is entirely based on people and people skills. 
A place where free people can go to develop skills not even known about by the city slaves and their mindless polluting conformity.  

Drink water and wash from the stream. 
Import food or grow your own. 
The Valley is surrounded by forest. 
The community is organized well enough that a daily shit-bucket collection takes your toilet from your bender and deposits it in the community compost. 
Kids born there are educated locally and not by state school. 
It is hardly Canada and the reserves, but its the closest thing to it in UK. 
Everybody knows everybody. 
Everybody knows everybody's business. 

A culture in miniature highlights the issues which all cultures face.
Politics is as rife in the Valley as it is in the city. 
It is also somewhat of a tourist venue for those curious and able to find it and get there. 
Everyone lives openly, which is to say everyone has the same STDs because with a very small population of very open minded people, liberal people gonna do what liberal people gonna do. 

Popi grew up there. 
At 15 Popi had enough. 
I heard about Popi. 

Popi a Bright in the context of the 2017 movie Bright (directed by David Ayer)
Everybody loved her. 
Popi was the most free spirit the Valley had produced, of a population who uphold being a freespirit as the ultimate Human Right and Aspiration.
My intuition screamed at me that I have to connect with her.
As soon as possible. 
I asked around.
The community protect.
People do. 

"No mate, you ain't going near our Popi."
"Ye well thanks for making me feel like a wolf after a sheep but there's more to it than that." 
"We don't know you."
I looked her square in the eye.
"I am True. You don't know Truth."

I wasn't though. Had i been True i would have gone direct to her.
My mistake was a preconception that I needed to go through other people to find her.
The Valley works its mysterious charms; to take, to give, to set its own balance.

I knew that by connecting with Popi I could set her toward a path she needed to be on, and that it had to be me because nobody else could do it. Because of the primal nature of energy and how it dances, electromagnetic. I cannot explain this without sounding crazy to the crazy people. 

I had seen the girls spirit and connected with her in dream. Because brights stand out in the darkness and I have stared into that darkness so much that I can see the motions of brights, their colours which have meanings, where and how they flow, and ebb. I saw the imminence of her ebb.

The valley closed its cultural gates against me. 

I saw her ebb extinguish and I cried. 

Later, i heard that Popi had killed herself. 

Those who knew her explained, she had been trying to get away from the valley and its controlling culture. She had nowhere to go. 

I returned to my empty flat in the city which was a gate to so much of the multiverse. 

Another light gone out. 


5.Toni

Soon after that I encountered a young teenage boy crying on the back doorstep of a church at the back of my apartment. I asked him whats up? Sat next to him. Talked. He opened up to me. 

"Social services has forced me into adoption with a woman who does not feed me and hits me." 

He showed me the bruising.

"The teachers don't care. The police don't want to get involved. So I have run away. I don't know where to go." 

I could not take a vulnerable minor into my apartment alone without putting myself at risk. i do not operate that way. 

I was returning to my apartment to eat because I had not eaten for a day or two. Neither had Toni.
I suggested we buy food from the shop, which we did. Moving the body in walking is a step toward going forward, motion, holistic metabolic system regulating itself toward balance, starts the healing. He stopped crying and had a goal now, albeit temporary and small but the food would help.
He is eating my food, technically not my food but food I had bought. My energy is going into him with it. His configuration would shift and align with mine. This is how energy works. Idiots do not see it this way.
We discussed his friends and their parents being home, people who know him and can help. 
He was missing the hell out of his old friends, his old school, his old life. He had been banned form seeing any of them by his foster mother.
We visited his friend in another part of town. He was grateful that I knew the route. 
His friends parents were out and I did not want to drop him off there, it felt bad.
We visited another of his friends in another part of town. 
We borrowed the phone to call Toni's mother and she told him to fuck off.
The friend phoned his own mother and arranged Toni could stay the night there. 
She likes Toni and knows him well.
This felt good. The healing Toni needs even if only for one night.
I did not know what else to do.
Had I called the authorities, the police &/or social services, it would have betrayed Toni's trust for me and it would have caused him more problems. 
He would have run away again with nowhere to go.
He would lose trust in other people and his ability to trust others would be damaged.
Shaman are healers. We are advanced at emotional psychology and at psychology. 
We do our best to do the right thing.
I did not see Toni again but I did see a few of his friends sometime later who told me that he had gone back to his foster mother's and they hadn't heard of him since.


6. This list continues. 

Many more examples. People would rather drive their kids to suicide than allow a shaman to heal them. This is UK 21st century. I do not regard any of this to be my failing because I tried damn hard to prevent those who I could see are going to do it, from doing it. Everyone who was binding them to the path of self destruction did everything they could to get rid of me by labeling me as the danger element, as an unknown, as a potential risk. 

There is a beautiful tradition that by remembering to others the lesson of a persons life, is to honour that life.

Wuxia Moves





 1.


"She's a fake!"
"Look more closely."
"But she doesn't realize she's a fake!" 

Two old guys from a different, more respectable, experienced and older, insightful yet repressive culture; scrutinizing Holly (Auddrey Hepburn) as 'the symbol for Modernity as Lifestyle' (1960s), in the movie Breakfast At Tiffany's 1961 American romantic comedy film directed by Blake Edwards and written by George Axelrod, based on Truman Capote's novel. 
  



And so we go into post-post-post-modernist 2018 where the intelligensia elite has to involve itself with the practicality of fakes who do not realize they are fakes. The pursuit of Truth as embodiment of Aspiration and spiritual path sets its seldom accoladed acolytes as a caste apart. Capable to see through illusion and yet surrounded by a mainstream who perpetuate illusion, the intelligensia become outcastes. 

"Zombies do not recognize that they are zombies. That's the problem." SnakeAppleTree

"They go aggressive when it is showed to them and they simply cannot and will not integrate it. There's no getting through to them. They mistake their job role within their illusion of social hierarchy, for reality - because they are cognitive dissonance mental health condition. They are technically unsane. Yet as mainstream, they re-affirm delusion as 'normality'. They persecute the non-normative, which is to persecute the truth. For scientists this is a bitch of a situation."

Experiences outside of the structural norm define the out-caste. It is here where we discover that UFO's, fayries and exotic yet real stuff, is not mythical but actual. It is here with these knowledges that we can never go back to existing within the confines of a state of restrictive intelligence and delusional decision making. Lies built upon lies create monstrous towers inevitably to fall when the fundamental wave collapses, as science tells us it will.

This is the foundation of our exploration of Wuxia. 

Wuxia (武俠, IPA: [ù.ɕjǎ]), which literally means "martial heroes", is a genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists in ancient China. Although wuxia is traditionally a form of literature, its popularity has caused it to spread to diverse art forms such as Chinese opera, manhua, films, television series and video games. It forms part of popular culture in many Chinese-speaking communities around the world.

The word "wuxia" is a compound composed of the elements wu (literally "martial", "military", or "armed") and xia (literally "honourable", "chivalrous", or "hero"). A martial artist who follows the code of xia is often referred to as a xiake (literally "follower of xia") or youxia (literally "wandering xia"). In some translations, the martial artist is referred to as a "swordsman" or "swordswoman" even though he or she may not necessarily wield a sword.

The heroes in wuxia fiction typically do not serve a lord, wield military power or belong to the aristocratic class. They often originate from the lower social classes of ancient Chinese society. A code of chivalry usually requires wuxia heroes to right and redress wrongs, fight for righteousness, remove oppressors, and bring retribution for past misdeeds. Chinese xia traditions can be compared to martial codes from other cultures such as the Japanese samurai's bushido tradition.

Wuxia is primarily a code of honor which instructs lifestyle. 

We have identified already that 'zombies do not recognize they are zombies and perpetuate falseness through their beliefs and thus actions'.

Contemporary Chivalry is, for the outcaste who have retained integrity and honor by standing against delusionary behavior of the zombie apocalypse mainstream horde, are by default Wuxia. Whether the individual aligns with the pursuit of waking up the zombies for the betterment of community, or avoids them, or a mix of both, is the choice of the individual. Even in Minecraft can zombies be rehabilitated. There is hope. 

Most outcaste are in some way broken by the mechanical systematic dehumanization of the state architecture. The hierarchy machine is not your friend.Recognition of this is critical to understanding why most Wuxia are kinked in some way; through constant barrage of abuse.

"When something so extreme happens to us that we cannot go back there in ordinary consciousness, but we need to go back there to heal ourselves, the pursuit of it defines us, the journey becomes expertise. This does not make us bad people."

“Stories of Imagination tend to upset those without one.” Emma Lou

We are living in a fayrie-tale. True to any fayrie-tale it has darkness and beauty, lightness and mirth of the sort black witches determine kill. It's full of Love fragile from the advances of the fake and obsessively controlling world of exploitation which is the System and Society. 

She asked me my favorite movies and for the first time I thought about trends running through the first three which came to mind. This, from an overview of what the movies are about. 


"It's about music. And a good hearted thief vs society and its corruption." (on Subway)

"That ones about music too, and good hearted thieves. It explores how society accepts or not, and how hypocritical its rules are." (on Diva)

"That one's a love story about thieves and honor. Being Chinese it story-tells in an epic and beautiful way. And has great music." (on Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon)

Recognition that we are in a story. That the genre defines the dialogue. That the direction is within a context for it to flow. That the tenets of storytelling apply also to the unfolding of our lives. 

After which, justification: "I'm not a thief!" I'm not. 

Except perhaps for the dog-hearts of daughters; infinite loving, attempting always understanding as default mode to return to asap, and can become bitches when this trust is scarred, as happens to far too many. It is why the tenderness of loving is critical to positive development of relationships. 

"These are all love stories too."

I like these movies because the underdog, forced to survive repression, has to make a stand. I like the characters who make a stand against oppression. They are heroes. But there is wisdom here too, they must be the fox to outsmart superior odds. Cunning which develops from experience and insight.





Subway - 1985 French comedy drama film directed by Luc Besson and starring Isabelle Adjani and Christopher Lambert. The film is classified as part of the cinema du look movement.

Diva - 1981 French thriller film directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix, adapted from the novel Diva by Daniel Odier (under the pseudonym Delacorta).

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (simplified Chinese: 卧虎藏龙; traditional Chinese: 臥虎藏龍) is a 2000 martial arts film. The film is a Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong and American venture produced by Asian Union Film & Entertainment, China Film Co-Productions Corporation, Columbia Pictures Film Production Asia, Edko Films, Good Machine International, and Zoom Hunt Productions. Directed by Ang Lee.




Why I like these films

These films all happen to have thieves in them. I am not a thief I do not respect theft. I do value that all property is theft from community but I also value that I am looking after the tools I need to be an artist better than some disempowered twat who would break it from social frustration or spite and envy and throw it in a river.  

I did not make these movies and decide to put thieves in them. Why did the film maker make that decision? Because they are adventurous and stand against not the normality of human community but primarily about survival in a culture where outcasts exist because capitalism, not property ownership, is inequality based and by default will always create a poor underclass which once accepting the pointlessness of aspiration toward an impossible dream accepts instead degeneracy as a survival necessity. 

In short, the excitement of those who stand against the enforced rules of a society which exploits instead of providing for all. This is the second factor, that it is not the community who the thieves target but the totalitarianism of a system which has let them down. In this they are not only vindicated but become also heroes standing for the moral cause of human equality for all. 

Stealing an apple (or indeed a hole) from the barrel is less offensive than stealing a fifth of a hard earned income through taxes or the ground beneath your feet by land ownership, the many in debt as slaves to the few, and most enslaved to a corrupt system which relies on persecution and exploitation as well as the brainwashing of the masses, to self-perpetuate. Within Wuxia culture the many facets of this are explored. Such exploration is of contrasts and by example. Often, by analogy.

Such examples are not always from Chinese literature and movies thus, in Western traditions the equivalents are to be found in movies about criminals which range from the good, stylish French movies such as Subway, Diva and Nikita (1990 Luc Besson), through film noir, the ugly of gangster movies such as Untouchables (1987 Brian De Palma), to the bad of mega violence movies such as Ronin (1998 John Frankenheimer) and John Wick (2014 Chad Stahelski, David Leitch)

All of these explore morality crisis through various situations varying from heroic revenge to simple robbery for personal gain and empirical expansion. To this we bring Lawrence of Arabia (1962 David Lean) and Zulu (1964 Cy Endfield) into the fold, and the inevitability of StarWars (1977 George Lucas) space opera dramatically inspired by wuxia precepts indeed to such extent the cliches listed as bullet point define the Wuxia genre.
