I was having a chat with a fellow called Tim, down by the pig run (its pig friendly around these here parts) about a month ago and we got to talking, as you might do, pig politics? Not on you Nelly!
Tim was saying how the vision for the organic farm is to be non ownership, to belong to one group a community as One It is sometimes referred to as unity
noun, plural u·ni·ties.
1. the state of being one; oneness.
2. a whole or totality as combining all its parts into one.
3. the state or fact of being united or combined into one, as of the parts of a whole; unification.
4. absence of diversity; unvaried or uniform character.
5. oneness of mind, feeling, etc., as among a number of persons; concord, harmony, or agreement.And it got me to thinking of the number 1, there is a bit of history to the number 1. Then i was thinking of the universe, as you may or may know, is mostly empty, pretty much nothing. The universe is mostly empty
There is a history to the number 0, its the newest number of all the numbers and the most important, it originated in India, they made nothing a number!
Language of the Matrix?
Zero revolutionized navigation, for the first time longitude and latitude could be calculated, in fact the mathematicians in India calculated the circumference of the world, long before anyone else, it made the 'discovery' of America possible for instance
Remember this sly fox? Introducing Henry
The real importance of 0 was in trading, commerce and the charging of interest and whats interesting is the Catholic church said charging interest was a sin, they called it 'Usury', so Roman numerals were A OK, remember Henry the VIII?
The catholic church wouldn't give him a divorce? The church of England is formed, Henry gets a divorce now that he's no longer Catholic and he says usury is ok, so this is where the big switch-aroo happened, out with the old, in with the new numbers, out go the Roman Numerals!!
0 and 1, made it possible to calculate compounding interest (the 8th wonder of the world), it was the beginning of capitalism, something the world is still suffering from!
'The most powerful force in the universe is compound interest"The interesting thing about compounding interest is (after WWII, England sent an accountant over to the USA to arrange a loan, he never factored in the compounding interest, many say this is why England was involved in George Bush's little war in the middle east, since they will never pay that loan, England was pretty much hanging over a barrel.
But what's money when your dealing with your friends, if your friends help you, you help them, right?
Not the actual barrel England was hanging over, but i think you get the idea?
One and zero made infinitely big numbers and infinitely small numbers possible, it was sometimes the (.00000001 * 10000000000) calculations that made you in business or flat broke, these calculations were impossible with Roman Numerals or with an abacus
It looks nice, but them little numbers just don't add up!
Why read this when you can watch it all here Part 1?
A spiritual tangent?
When you meditate, most people meditate on nothingness, or 'meditate without content', many believe
When you meditate on nothing, you can go home, to yourselfInteresting, your true being emerges, when you put aside your ego and mind, being of no mind in fact, reveals just who you really are.
Just how did the Buddhists know this? Because thats pretty much all there is, nothing with few illusions thrown in, maybe a sunrise here and there, a wave splashes, people having fun down on the beach?
Everything is made of matter, everything is the matter, maybe this matters then? It's certainly been on my mind, the problem is presenting it and not sounding like a half wit?
Then i was thinking 'What percentage of the universe is not dark matter or ordinary matter?
4.3% of the universe (~45 Billion Light year diameter) is Planets, Gases and Such. Dark Matter (WMP, or Weakly Interacting Mass Particle) is invisible. If my math is correct, (and i did it on a hitachi supercomputer) the universe should weigh around... 790 centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion centillion Tonnes, to the 947,304,691,120,161,109,425e+4964546546516548897984351th Power! I Guess About 74 followed by trllions of trillions of trillions of digits, poundsBut lets continue...
Not that it's relevant, but i remember my Shaman in Bolivi Tulassi once said:
Things that are seen and unseen and in between there are windows...A window is either open or closed, anything electrical is based on Boolean logic, 1 and 0
1 = 'TRUE'
0 = 'FALSE'
1 = 'ON' or
The switches are 'ON' or 'OFF', lights too, the switch was definately 'ON' in my brain...
And that pretty much what i was thinking looking at a pig...down on an Organic farm and i'm still here!
