Living Life At Rock Bottom- A Homeless Veterans Story

As of today, I've been homeless for a bit over two and a half years.

Right after becoming homeless, I tried to stay with friends. But that never seemed to be a comfortable situation for me. Such friends did not understand how I became homeless, so my relationship with such friends was often fractured, I'm sad to say. Such friends also included former lovers. No situation staying with such friends ever worked. My stay with such friends was often brief and unpleasant for me.

So I…

How To Be Homeless

"With food stamps, in most states you can acquire a free cell phone.  I did this in Atlanta.  It's 250 free minutes a month, for a year or longer.  As a homeless person, it's likely you will not have many friends calling you on your free cell phone.  But such a phone is necessary often, for potential job interviews, and potential crisis situations."

Inmates Write

Dan Abshear- in jail for three months in 2015:

A few men here in jail with me look much older than their actual age. And this is fascinating to me.

This possibly may be due to their in-home doses of severe drugs.

Their accelerated age may also be due to various life tragedies they have experienced.

These prematurely aged men are very pleasant people to speak with I have found. Yet I do in fact see pain in their eyes as I interact with them.

Myself I am told…

Microscopium - the microscope

microscope Having named one southern constellation after a telescope, Lacaille named another after the microscope. The two star groups are beside each other. It seemed only right since each of these inventions expanded our level of consciousness by orders of magnitude, albeit in opposite…

Monoceros - the unicorn

yaayimaunicorn The constellation Monoceros was invented to fill in a big gap in the winter sky. The ancient star watchers don't seem to have been overly concerned about the sky in a cartographical sense, so they recognized Orion and Hydra and associated them with mythical stories, but…

American Politic

Why is America in near constant war?

There is more than one reason.

We like to swagger. We like to sway. It lets us feel the clothes, lets us feel the groove, let us show off a bit. We know we can’t always swagger, but we do it where possible.

The government is run by humans and thus their personal bias bleeds into policy and it makes us sway. When we come to our senses and put in some…

The Problem of Language

As humans, we are drawn together and then we notice we must be apart.

Language bridges the ideas stuck inside two minds. Communication is the difference between a human and society. We must have communication to have what we have. We must never forget the flaws inherent in attempting to communicate with another mind.

We feel communication is fairly simple as we do it on a near constant basis, everyday for multiple hours. It is easy and comes naturally. Remember that time you…

Musca - the fly

guitarfly The southern constellation of Musca represents a lowly fly. When Johann Bayer added it to his maps he called it "The Bee" and folks liked that name for a couple of hundred years. But then some map maker called it The Fly except there was already a fly up north which was part of…

What is Strength?

Let me tell you a story.

A youth, full of exuberance and vitality, comes across a bully. The bully forces the youth into situations which cause anger and resentment.

The youth, unable to best the bully, recedes and contracts inward. Afraid of the bully, decisions are made, paths taken.

The youth reads and tries to understand the bully, but is unable. The youth knows the bully is strong and the youth is not. What does he do?

The youth witnesses Boxing. Two strong…

The Spiral Theory

I need to show this to my atheist brothers before I start attempting this on theists.

Please berate me as much as possible. All I ask is you try to disprove my claim. I know the burden of proof is on the claimant, but as we understand logical absolutes, there is a point where only a disproof will do.

Existence is. The Statement.

It is 1. And it is not 1. At the same time. And 0 is the end?

Existence is. This is the logic chain.

First, the…

The Importance of Conversation

Nearly everyday, I walk into my local Starbucks and order my morning coffee. On a particularly rainy day at 7:30am, I hear a woman, Clara, say to a fellow coffee drinker as they exit the store, "Watch your shoe laces!" The woman’s boot laces are untied and dragging. As Clara is speaking aloud, I reply with a minor comedic comment. She excites and begins conversing with me about multiple topics starting with work, age and experience, 2016 Presidential Election, our in born…

Norma - the carpenter's square

square Norma is a southern constellation and the name refers to the thingy a carpenter uses to make stuff look normal. It's a good example of how the name for a group of stars can rapidly evolve. It was first named by a French guy, Nicolas Louis de Lacaille, who called it "l’Equerre et…

The Return of Pakistani Social media Activists

Pakistani social media activists who were abducted between 4 to 7 January by intelligence agencies in Pakistan have been released on 28 January.



As i got the news i contacted my fellows & asked about the situation. After their abduction there was a huge blasphemy campaign against them on main stream media & social media. So as they were released they were kept in safe places which was arranged by their friends & families.



They were beaten badly for having… Continue

The importance of a critical press

I am a strong supporter of an independent and critical press, and happy that we once again have one after nearly a decade. Hopefully it will now learn self criticism.

Self Improvement

The most fundamental, common concept for everything in existence is Self Improvement.

Everything within existence must maintain a minimum stability, must focus on self improvement every moment as the first goal of everything in existence is to continue existence. Existence ends when the minimum stability is lost.

LOGIC CHAIN - Axiomatic Style

Please critique any Logic Chain. I am attempting to allow another person to understand why I come to a conclusion. This is the beginning of me trying to understand ideal communication.

Axiomatic Style - Every statement must be true and link with each other to form the Logic Chain.

What is Enlightenment?

I see ‘enlightenment’ as understanding all things in existence are kin. We all have the same basis for existing and owe all of our consciousness to the massive, complicated, mash up of evolved forms from atoms to chemicals to cells to organs which create a path for our entire body to work together. Quantum soup creates atomic building blocks which create atoms which create molecules which create DNA which instructs…
