Oil – Peak oil

If oil (hydrocarbons),
supposedly formed from the bodies of sea creatures,
( in two periods, 90 and 150 million years ago)
then what happened to all the nitrogen?

=
Btw: Abiotic oil is the NeoDarwinism of the oil sector – without any evidence whatsoever. I don’t subscribe to that faith.

Some advocate using some of the last remaining cheap oil to construct mega projects to offset the change that will be unavoidable when the oil starts to run out. The principle of equilibrium warns otherwise. Mega projects are a major perturbance of the wider, more dominant global ecosystem. The equilibrium will be disturbed. These mega projects will be forced by various ways and means – primarily by the forces of nature – to get back to the natural ecosystem. The energy demand to resist the megaproject’s slide back to normality will ultimately prove fruitless. Such megaprojects involve things like growing cucumbers in India (already happening), and growing strawberries in the Egyptian Desert. etc etc

My proposal pretty much heads off in the opposite direction. I think much of the remaining cheap oil to assist the emergence of many microprojects which are only slightly removed or nudged from the overriding global natural system. We must learn to live in the natural world. Actually there are still significant projects I think would be good, such as a logistic channels roads/rail but designed as much as possible to environmentally ergonomic.

As for Dams, I believe they are the type of megaprojects which stand the best chance of ultimately being of more benefit than drainage, but they should. again, try to accommodate the natural world as much as possible – e.g. using natural lakes. I don’t know a great deal about the Three Gorges Dam project in China but the effort put into achieving it seems to me that it is quite for removed (as dams go) from the previous natural status quo, therefore a project very likely to experience major buffeting by the Old Natural Order.  One project which may be classified as a mega project, is the re-designation of many unnatural constructions in the great Urban sprawls e.g. the US east Coast, Tokyo, London to Birmingham. Say for example a block of flats a 20 story building. Have say every second floor designated for agriculture. [Note this is a better solution than dismantling the cities once the oil based lifestyle screws are turned too tightly]. Of course studies need to be done NOW as to how to understand and make those micro-agrarian systems work successfully].

Life simplification in terms of raw materials is also necessary. Use more bamboo – a superb construction material. Renewable too; Pleases the Panda worshippers also! Knowledge availability, sustainability and dissemination is vital. How that is to happen is not easy to envisage. Electronic communication is excellent but expensive in energy consumption. Could clockwork / solar do the job? Speaking of solar, is there a low energy way of harvesting solar power? In this age of free flowing oil, silicon production, like almost everything else, has happily guzzles on energy. Why develop highly efficient methods of producing solar cells when oil will do it for it so much more cheaply, but solar cells offer great potential for a small level of electronic and creature comforting goods/products/utilities.

Benny Hill

A bit smutty, and perhaps one can say getting towards  ‘gateway porn’, but sometimes Benny makes me laugh when a laugh of this kind is needed. I tried to watch the old Benny Hill video I posted here previously (https://lwtc247.wordpress.com/2009/06/17/more-escapism/), but the YouTube vids have been deleted. So After a quick hunt, I found a MySpace video (I don’t understand what MySpace is) but hey, who cares. Lets just watch some classic Benny Hill humour..

There are a lot of amateur Benny Hill chase scenes on the web. This export isn’t too bad as it verges on the surreal ridiculous resembing what Benny did and the timing is pretty qood too. Pity it doesn’t end properly.

Monsanto is an enemy combatant – Boycott Monsanto

Well one of the most disgusting megalithic companies in the world (that controls much of the US’s food supply amongst other things) can pimp their GM foods into you without safety tests.

Hourray for humanity.

Monsanto GM seed ban is overturned by US Supreme Court

BOYCOTT MONSANTO

I was going to recommend you watch ‘The Corporation’, a 3 hour Candian documentary showing the nasty sh*t Monsanto get up to, but Google removed it. Great. It’s still available however: from www.thecorporation.com link to embedded video = http://tinyurl.com/23zsh2e or here http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/1371416


Iblis didn’t bow to humans – In a sence, I think I can understand why.

That title is horrible, but it gets the point across and I’m too tired and pressed for time to try and think of an alternative. Man is said to have been Gods greatest creation. Iblis refused to bow down before man. Given what I’m feeling about ‘many’ people these days, I can understand why bowing down before man might have been an ‘issue’. Of course I’m not excising Satans defiance of God.

The other day I was attending a philosophical discourse (actually ‘talk’ with a lot of Q and A – would perhaps be more representative descriptor) examining “Islam (in terms of immigration) in Europe”.

It was a worthwhile use of time, and I was glad to attend it. The good doc posed a number of apparently pushme-pullyou Q’s as one may expect from good philosophers ;) By the way, I wish philosophers would not only ask skilful and quirky Q’s but propose skilful solutions, even if they don’t hold a piece of paper that identifies them as being “qualified” (what ever that means) in political science.

I had the opportunity – rather, I took it – to challenge some of the assumptions I heard. For example the ‘negative’ image of Muslims due to 911 and Madrid etc, I advised caution on these ‘facts’ {not that the speaker was saying they were facts, but I’m pretty sure the audience was taking them to be so}. I pointed out that even if one accepts the 911 stuff, out of the 1 billion + Muslims, only a relative handful are involved in terrorism. Yeah, it’s the kind of thing one would expect to encounter in the first few pages of a “beginners guide to challenging your own perceptions’”, but still, it needed to be said. These ‘givens’ are quite prolific!

Some of what the audience said was slightly surreal and actually agitating, because while most of the Muslims in the ‘audience’ were challenging the basis of the European Islamophobia, many of the Muslims in the audience had inside them the same seeds but whose only difference was these seeds had already germinated in the mind of Europeans to result in their European Islamophobia. One such “seed” is a general acceptance that the Muslims did 9/11, 7/7, Madrid, Killing Van Gough* etc. I was the only one to challenge what occurred to me was a “tried ‘n convicted / done ‘n dusted” belief in the official narratives of these violent events.

This is a disease amongst Muslims. They positively lap up accusations of gross crimes of terrorism upon themselves – a bit like the Germans that have been forced to be so guilty of the Jewish holocaust that they stand back once again at the Palestinian Holocaust despite them singing to the orchestrators tune of ‘never again’.

Pah! – but at the same time absolutely incredible that they are happeing today.

A real ‘crunch’ moment was someone said ‘we have to deal with the realities’

Do people actually understand what really means?

I think not!

I think they just blurt out catchphrases in an attempt to appear clever, supermarket philosophy if you will, to be intellectually lazy and avoid perturbing their safety zone.

I tried to inform them. “Whose Reality?” I asked.

You see, once you ‘deal with the reality’ what happens after that is that you have accepted the reality set by others – you become bound to operate within it, complete with its bent and twisted rules. You strip yourself of power. It’s a mugs game, a dereliction of duty to oneself and society. A failure of your own human-ness.

By NOT ‘dealing with the reality’ i.e. grabbing hold of your own destiny and making the reality in defiance of someone else’s dictated reality, I’m not talking about producing chocolate houses in the woods, giant beanstalks or geese that lay golden eggs. I’m talking about the parameters of human society, not a fairytale as a reality.

This world is CRAP because WE, you and me, have allowed it to be CRAP.

The ‘comfort zone’ is incredibly captivating and sticky. It’s also incredibly selfish and dumb.

After I had done my bit, I felt a bit like not much had soaked through their skulls, once again denting the supposed ‘potential’ of today’s humankind.

A couple of days later, I was involved in a workshop of conflict resolution. Two groups were assembled to take an opposing view of some issue. The group I was in was to defend a policy of positive discrimination in favour of an indigenous population against the wealth and educational dominance of an immigrant population. I was supposed to argue this way, but there was an opportunity here to probe people mind about what they think life is all about.

I asked Q’s like by what standard are you saying the indigenous population are ‘left behind’. You see it was the immigrants economics and way of life that was the benchmark. If the indigenous population weren’t forced into that system in the first place but allowed to operate in whatever way THEY saw fit then if they stuck with their traditions, the ‘left behind’ thing becomes a non issue. The people in my group simply couldn’t understand what I was saying. To them it was inconceivable, like I was speaking Martian. They ended up trying to ‘explain it to me’ as if I was dumb (which I may well be, but I wasn’t dumb in this case!) and that it was ME that simply couldn’t grasp the concept. I was the dumb ‘outsider’ I actually felt quite intellectually superior to these people – which in a number of ways is worrying; As I’m sure you’ll probably agree.

I’ll end with the last point today. This story:

Study examines scientists’ ‘climate credibility’

Page last updated at 08:47 GMT, Tuesday, 22 June 2010 09:47 UK
By Pallab Ghosh

“Some 98% of climate scientists that publish research on the subject support the view that human activities are warming the planet, a study suggests.” – source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science_and_environment/10370955.stm

Crikey. The HUGE majority of academic papers I’ve seen attach “hopeful” (that’s being diplomatic!) taglines to their papers saying things like “This will contribute to a cure for HIV/Cancer/Malaria” blah blah blah. One highly respected academic confided in me that they attach stuff entertaining a Darwinian viewpoint to their papers or else their papers simply won’t get published, but they themselves don’t believe anything to do with Darwinism at all.

The point is, the game is rigged and if you don’t pander to it, then your toast. It’s a ‘Mark of the Beast’ kind of thing. This BBC story, like so many BBC newz stories is meaningless bumfluff.

Man it’s been a weird few weeks.

* ‘A Muslim (not the singular) may have killed Theo Van Gogh, but no actual act of violence (which automatically gets promoted to terrorism or even better still ‘ISLAMIC terrorism’) springs forth from the vacuum, yet that is how these events are spun out, that there is a bunch of backwards men who out of their own choice decided non-Muslims must be exterminated. And not springing forth from the vacuum is NOT an excuse for acts of violence, and similarly there are provocative acts that DO require a violent response – when for example a demon like Tony Blair robs the lives of 1,400,000 men women and children. The killing of Blair’s murder by those who are his victims is a very persuasive argument – an act of natural justice.

No War for Israel in Iran – Keep Americans Safe – David Duke

No War for Israel in Iran – Keep Americans Safe – David Duke
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qxzZY4JycY

David Duke is portrayed as a racist and anti-Semite (yeah, that would be the falsified modern day definition).
 
It has got to the point where; When the Western ‘populist’ (usually corporate) media trash starts to demonise someone, then I feel it’s reasonably safe to take by default that this person may well have an important view on things which should be listened to, and the aren’t likely to be nearly as bad as they say.

In a way, it reminds me of the saying “Don’t believe anything until it’s officially denied”
 
Yes, our ‘glorious’ leaders of the ‘free’ world (LOL) have lied so much, that when one inverts the disease that trickles from their lips, one often gets a better and more accurate picture of what exactly is going on.
 
God help us, and empower the truth tellers.
 
Great Video.

 

More personal thoughts and Mahabharat

Updated:

Having gone to the Zoo yesterday, staring at the monkeys and orangutans, I thought about NeoDarwinism. It was easy to imagine/feel we humans were chimps/monkeys – the timing of their motions were almost the same as us. You might know what I mean by that if you think about spiders, snakes cockroaches etc. They can at times, move very quickly – quicker than our average 0.2s reaction time, and when they move so quick they induce some level of fear in us – they can do things before we can react to it. But the usual behaviour of chimps/monkeys is within out time reference. Hence they ‘seem’ human. There are some who believe we were an ape-like being at one time and split from apes/gorillas/monkeys/chimps etc.

Anyway, the monkeys testicles were on open display and I imagined a man in place of the monkey. He’d likely cover up his testicles and penis. Then I got thinking of some TV programs that showed animals behaving in ways thought of as being exclusive to humans – using tools etc – the program essentially tried to ‘do away’ with any difference between us. But the program didn’t mention shame / embarrassment which I don’t think animans have. I wonder if the program deliberately put up ‘false’ differentials (straw man) between humans and apes/chimps whatever. Back to shame… It’s funny how we feel shame. I pointed out to a person nearby that “it’s funny how they are not ashamed yet we as humans are”. The person replied that’s why they are called animals and when people behave badly, the term animal is quite appropriate.

Later when in the shower, I thought of the monkeys, nakedness and shame again. I tried to think about how if we were monkeys – as the Neodarwinists insist, then how could a sense of shame develop? I don’t think it can be explained in an ‘evolutionist sense’ but surely must come from innate knowledge of advanced thinking hence it seemed to yet again diminishes the evolutionists usual baseless arguments.

Not strongly related to all this: I was recalling some past experiences and one of which relates to when I was University. My housemates made fun of me for watching a dramatization of the Mahabharat because of its special effects. No need to comment further on that. (Mahabharat went on for about two years – once a week for about 40 mins each week).

I get the feeling some Muslims are scared to engage in learning or even exposing themselves to other religions because they think they might lose their faith or they might see serious religious crimes such as Shirk, but to me, I can watch/enquire about other religions without losing my faith in the Islamic reassertion of worship to The One God. Simple studies of comparative religion interests me because I can see the residues of the Universal messages of The One God (even in polytheistic faith!) and fundamental truths throughout the world. It really is amazing. SubhanAllah.

I should say Mahabharat helped me become a Muslim. In a way (not in totality) it significantly expanded my cultural awareness from Western – trash-centric – “culture”, to to that of the great ancient civilisations (Egyptian/Pharaohanic culture had an air of being too long expired and Aztec/Incan had too little depth of history/analysis)
