If Looks Could Kill

"...a lively smile, well if looks could kill"

A. Lively.

Anne Lively.

Anne Lively was murdered in such a way to be invisible to precogs. 

"If looks could kill."
Seeing the future. 
The Observer Affects The Observed. 
Every precogs nightmare.

Frank Herbert establishes with this as a premis in the Dune sextet.
Philip K Dick explores it without that stranglehold.

Anne Lively is from the movie interpretation of Minority Report (PKD).

It's all encoded in there into that one line from Transvision Vamp's Hanging Out With Halo Jones.  
Once the mind has made the connection, it is impossible to un-make it. 
Even if the data relating cause with effect is wrong, the connection is still a valid dimensional universe within the infinity. The complexity of the observers mind establishes how much data can be assimilated to make accurate interpretation of otherwise unrelated and randomly chaotic data. This is a basic mentat awareness (Herbets Dune).

Another one which keeps coming to mind is Ramona A. Stone and Ramona Flowers character in Scott Pilgrim vs the World movie, Ramona being an unusual name. 
Bowie described his concept album 1.Outside (from which Ramona A. Stone is a character) as being "a multidimensional hyper-cycle" or somesuch. 

Connected with this is the movie Romancing The Stone and its sequels/spiritual successors the Jewel Of The Nile and War Of The Roses.

Changing The Goalposts

google dictionary

Dictionary definition of the word delusional. It means two things. It means confused and it also means purposefully being manipulative. In general in society we all use it to mean the first of these. It is equally as valid to knowingly use the other meaning. A person who is a trickster, is delusional. A person who has been tricked and operating on a false premise, is delusional. The both are delusional, although the incentive is different in each case.

From my experience with this, it has become apparent that people with a cognitive disability or other form of mental impairment react in one of two ways when accused of being delusional. There are two stages in both cases. In both cases, the first stage is to react with hostility. If a person is consciously tricking other people, they will then attack as their second stage. A confident and adept manipulator will often use another person who they have deluded already, to do the attack. This is called proxy. In the case of the delusional person not realising they have been tricked, their second stage is to re-evaluate the situation. Both of these must be compared to a person who if accused of being delusional, does not attack because they are not delusional.

In modern jargon, the second type; the tricked (as opposed to trickster) is known as a flying monkey, from the movie the Wizard of Oz.

The attack of a trickster is likely, within the framework of contemporary culture, to be an allegation that the person exposing their manipulation, is bullying them.

The narcissist will play the victim role in attempt to convince and recruit onlookers (flying monkeys) that they are innocent and that their narrative is the accurate version of events. It creates a smokescreen, disempowering the person exposing them from being able to do so.

The only successful way of dealing with the situation is to detach and take neither side. Although there is no need for sides because this division plays into the hands of the trickster and their paradigm instead of maintaining objective clarity to see the situation as a whole for what it is. Only by stepping back from the situation to analyse it from both points of view can the observer remain positive and non-biased. An objective person hears all sides and questions all, to positively determine equity.

So we have here a problem that the trickster is either recruiting new flying monkeys to protect them and to persecute those who would expose them, or that nobody wants to get involved, has the effect of isolating whoever is exposing the trickster. In either case, the trickster has won their game. This is not to say the exposer wants to play any games.

For the purpose of being able to step back and analyse a situation for what it is, without being drawn into taking sides, it has become necessary to develop a simple framework to help with analysis.

For the purpose of being able to step back and analyse a situation for what it is, without being drawn into taking sides, it has become necessary to develop a simple framework to help with analysis.

The following blueprint has only six steps, which outlines a strategy. Many variants exist. We are calling this The Llanelli Strategy although it is also called “Changing the Goalposts”

1 Establish situation.
2 Agreement. An accord.
3 Second party acts on that accord.
4 First party removes and/or changes the accord. This has the effect of changing the context of 3 the actions.
5 Second party has a human reaction of the ground being whisked out from under their feet and is destabilised.
6 Having been manipulated, second party is now socially persecuted both for having been duped ergo inferior and/or for behaving (see 3) in the wrong way in accordance with the framework of the new context. That the second party has not agreed to the new accord is irrelevant to those who are in agreement with it (flying monkeys).

I have personally witnessed this occur in all levels of society from and including but not exhaustively: single mothers, social workers, school teachers, family counselors, job centre, private enterprise, police, solicitors, mental health functionaries, GPs, nurses, &etc; in all cases the strategy is employed for the purposes of manipulating individuals so as to take from them.

Dealing with this situation has only two possibilities. The winning strategy is not to play it at all, which is impossible. The game is about ‘being played by’ narcissists and their support/abuse network.

There are three aspects of this, correlating to stages of the 6 step strategy;
2 Do not agree. Solipsism in the community is impossible. Aloofness is.
5 Distangle.
6 Expose. This requires indisputable proof (actual evidence which is actual evidence).

Remember: onlookers will enter the situation at step 4 and will be using the new dominant narrative as their operating framework, which is pitched against the target. The flying monkeys rarely know that they are being manipulated. They believe they are the good guys, although by their actions (they are step 2 and 3 in a game while the target is at 5 and 6 in a different game) they are in effect persecuting somebody who has been selected by an abuser who they believe to be a hero. They are also targets being manipulated as part of a larger game.

The defence is to open their eyes to that they are deluded and to objectivity (to change their minds thus recruit them to persecute the abuser instead of the abuse victim). It is all about Context Control.

Unfortunately, the targets context is the one perceived as being abusive; so nobody wants to see things that way. The target is calling for people to question their own actions, which nobody likes to do because it is too close to feeling destabilized for comfort. Spiritual disciples do that by default, which is in part why they are targets by those seeking to dominate others through context control.

The fundamentalist and dogmatic part of the mind which we rely on for stability, is commonly called the Ego (not what Freud and Jung used the word to mean). Narcissists rely on that.

Weaver Bane

W:tA Character Development Background

In real life, Celtic shamen. Developing imagination is crucial to that purpose. Hence, a group of role players. We shared many experiences as many people through many worlds. My own heart however returns always to a place it calls home: Werewolf the apocalypse.

We recognised how strongly the Fianna tribe had been influenced, not by authentic Celtic culture and beliefs, but by its postChristian reinvention and the modern official groups claiming expertise while simultaneously entirely missing the point.

We discovered that the Uktena tribe more closely accurate to authentic Celtic culture.

There is a lot in Fianna which is inspired also by well-documented Irish mythology. The umbrella term Celtic includes that however the majority regard Irish tradition has its own unique thing. European counts in their various waves, have much in common with Norse. Therefore for these purposes we are including Norse also within the umbrella term Celtic. Academically and historically this might be in accurate however the cross cultural influence between all of these groups during times of war and trade, peace and integration, exploration and generation after generation of conquest and spiritual development, which has gone undocumented in the material world, Yet which showman are very well aware off. These are seldom to be found associating with those theatrically ritualistic actors officially claiming to be the so-called experts.

As a result of this, we had to make a choice. Do we change the Canon material so that the Celtic form of Uktena tribe rains in Europe, or should we alter the Fianna tribe so that it accords more with our desire for authenticity?

My group did not fully answer this question. We did however attempt to explore it, At first by using our version of the Viana tribe, and secondly by using a European version of the Oktana tribe.

Following this, we decided to try a completely different approach to the game and create characters from the other tribes. As a result, my first characters were versions of the same thing drawn through different parts of the canon character creation rules, the intent of which really was that it was the same character. My second character, a different persona Is more closely based upon myself. It is a lot of fun to do this.

My group eventually split because emigration after numerous travels, journeys of discovery.

Genis; that which follows from its own creation, from where we get the words genius, genesis and journeys. See: Get. From Ge, earth; which relates to age.

All that has gone; we are on the new page. It is a fresh day. The world of now is renewed. The harmonic is unique.

As I earth myself;
As I write these words;

A golden-red, copper colour flying insect, fire in flight, landed on the camera eyepiece of the iPhone into which I am narrating. As a GlassWalker, I cannot ignore the symbol and the spirit of the Weaver.

It is time to blog this.

GlassWalker Theurge

There was a swarm of flies in the town this week.

Brought on by the unusual wave of heat; so they say.

Always a deeper story.

Always a deeper story but it costs you scars to know.

Around here that ain’t cheap.

This town is septic.

The wounds do heal in time but they leave a taint in the blood and it keeps.

I did not want to settle here: I had to.

Against instinct, against wisdom: for duty and for responsibility.

I was sent here because I’m a lone wolf and I’d trod on paws.

To prowl, to scout the place, find out the score.

Something is ill here, something behind the skin.

A scent on the air when the wind changes.

It’s a coastal town, a bay.

A tin town where ore from the hills was brought down by rail and processed in the factories.

All that has gone now, faded away, not even a memory these generations later.

The big smelting works which poisoned the bay the same way sewage outlets do now, has been torn down and replaced by a coastal walk, pretty for people. Its canker still washes upon the shore, light black rock like meteor.

Mor, Sea. Morfa, by the sea. Welsh words. Mor like Mort, and More; L’amore.

I met a witch so dark I could not resist.

Like everyone here, she wears a mask and I hoped so much for its truth that I could not see through it, not until later. Sometimes the Wyrm has mysteries beyond comprehension.

We share a cub, born of Human to Garou.

It transpired after, not Human at all. A cunning cadaver, ancient from the gypsy folk of Europe, having fled the industrial and social revolutions of the great wars a century ago.

So I became tainted. I let her to live for the cub’s sake. A boy needs a mother, even such as she.

He’s not yet of age to tell what he is but I watch his rage and I know well when the time comes he’s going to need me as I’m going to need the pack with whom I seldom moot, because we are so far and so few in number in South Wales, off the beaten track.

Out here I study virtual reality environments, digital dreamtime, the cyber realms a blessing of company in my loneliness. I design urban architecture which investors build in distant cities.

And I roam. And I hunt. Rural Wales is easy for one so long in the tooth as I.

Because it is so difficult for those who are not; and for those unknowning of its ways and of its wylds.

There was a swarm of flies in town this week and I need to find out why.
