What to believe, Oh, what to Believe?

[thoughts from   ~burning woman~  ]

What to believe, oh, what to believe!? On one side sits my common sense and years of dedicated observation of man on this world. On that side, I smile, even laugh – but in hiding: it wouldn’t do to upset the believers in their fearfully self-righteous anger.

On the other side is the herd, man himself, with his accumulated force combined into a patriarchal civilization that has taken over everything and used it’s overwhelming power to rape, plunder and kill at will while running amok disgorging unsustainable numbers.

Now comes a crossroads, whether real or fake, and “man” the forceful (bad) predator, rapist and mass murderer demonstrates his innate fear of unknowns and his disgusting cowardliness in the face of an arisen “power” he does not know how to conquer and exploit.

A virus: imagine that! Something he can’t rape or plunder; something only the few know how to profit from.

How did this thing come about? Ah well, one could listen to man’s endless or contradictory explanations but they are just more excuses to hide superstitious ignorance and exposing the fact that “the great conqueror of nature” never did “conquer” his raped and tortured world; the fact that this world’s nature only went deeper underground to mutate and hide its lethal come-backs.

Are these “come-backs” surfacing in brute anger now? No, not yet, not yet. Earth’s revenge is a dish she does intend to savour cold and it’s not near cold enough yet. This is but a small test of one of nature’s many and deadlier weapons of mass destruction.

I am not concerned about this virus fear-demic. The programmed fear is just one more of man’s (read: Matrix) invented means to create chaos and additional control for the powerful over the less so, the proverbial storm in the teacup. There will be deaths during this period of panic, but it is already so obvious that most of those deaths ascribed to the “new and improved” virus primarily result from pre-existing pathologies. Ascribing these to a corona virus to create a global pandemic is a political gambit with serious long term goals.

Of course that is not what the hoi polloi want to hear. They have invested belief, feelings and tsunamis of emotions in this folly and they won’t be easily robbed of their new game. Suddenly they have become mindful of their corrupt, lying leadership. Suddenly they need to believe, even in blatant institutional lies. Suddenly the media’s non-stop talking heads are spewing the very wisdom of the gods. Suddenly we are existing under a new law called “The Six Foot Rule” or “The Two Meter Rule” (but not to worry, the virus knows both standard and metric systems.)  

There is something afoot the sheeple do not understand because they have no imagination, no personal power and no self-respect. They do not trust their own intuition or understanding, having sold that to the “group” – whatever the “group” be called – a long time ago when they chose their fantastic civilization over the rules of nature.

Suddenly they are faced with an instrument of comeuppance they know enough to fear but not enough to understand. Now they must turn to their “gods,” the promoters of civilization, for protection from the deadly monster. Suddenly they need to believe to survive the crisis of the moment, waiting for the morning when the great leadership declares business as usual.

Then the sheep will stop looking up, bleat a sigh of relief, drop their masks, gloves and “social distancing” and some of their newly-manufactured fears (but not all of them, the needed quota will remain). They will stop some of their war against each other and begin the rebuilding of the castles for their lords and masters. They will return to their happy fornicating and mindless defecating on the face of the planet.

Isn’t that how it’s always been in the world of civilizations?

On that glorious morning however this civilization will have taken one giant step closer to its final demise.  

Oh, and in case you are interested, there is one natural weapon of mass destruction that your civilization knows about. It’s even mentioned in some rule books of scientific magic. It’s called entropy. That’s the four horses of the Apocalypse riding over the face of civilization as one. On the final day of that ride, as the book says, people will hide in caves. They will crawl under rocks and cry to be covered over but nothing learned or known will avail. Nature will have the very last word… on that day.

      And what will mankind have achieved after a few thousand years of mindless butchery and destruction of the natural environment? How much of man’s current “works” will remain standing and functioning in a mere 10,000 years? How will man’s historical heroes fare among the ruins? If only we weren’t addicted to thinking short term…

    Hi, S’T,
    I hate to say this, but you are confusing the hell out of me these days. You are talking like a conspiracy theorist, which is okay to a point, but now it sounds like you are making Mother Nature the head conspirator. This virus is non-political, non-philosophical, non-religious, non-everything. It is a microscopic bug that has no way of knowing where it is going, or what is going to happen when it gets there.
    Tell me, are you self-isolating, or social distancing. I am, because it makes sense to me. I am eventually going to die, and if I get Covid-19 I will fairly surely die. I’ve been ready to die for decades. But that does not mean I am going to jump off a tall building, or to jump in front of a Sky-Train, or go where I know I am going to catch the coronavirus.
    There is no conspiracy, it is just life.
    But it sounds like you want it to be a conspiracy. I don’t get it.

      Sorry about the confusion. As Gandhi put it, “I must do what I must do.” I express thoughts, ideas, and certainly very strong opinions, usually in contrast to mob rule which best describes how man’s “rulers” run their civilization. This “virus” falls in the category of mega bullshit simply because those that “lead” present it as a major killer. Statistics continue to point to the simple fact that it is just another of those things that come by in the distant hope of reducing the Earthian population to where the natural world can manage. Our erstwhile leaders are caught on the horns of a terrible dilemma. Their consumerist predatory capitalism needs the vast numbers of essentially “useless” bodies to sell stuff to and foist stuff upon. On the other hand they want to reduce said population so they can re-create a pristine environment just for themselves and the few million slaves needed to maintain the golf courses, mansions and rose gardens, or to pilot the yachts. In this the “virus” can be a mindless other kind of flu or whatever escaped from some animal – and if my grandma had wheels she’d be a wagon – or it can be a deliberate “escape” from a bio-weapons’ lab – a much less fanciful scenario. In either case, here’s ‘nature’ presenting man with the means to lower its population and regain a sense of balance and a remote chance to avoid a, is it sixth?, extinction. So what do people do? They go into mad survival mode, of course, and gobble up every scratch of information on this thing that politicians, bought-and-paid-for medical “doctors”, bureaucrats, Internet trolls and corporations spew out to produce distrust and fear while creating chaos in the small business/commercial world. In my opinion, only a complete idiot would not look at the provenance of the STATISTICS on deaths, esp. how they are arrived at, and not question the whole thing. That doesn’t mean I personally violate the self imposed restrictions the hoi polloi have fearfully saddled themselves with. If that’s what “society” wants in order to feel safe – and I can tell you it hasn’t helped a bit – then I can go along with the madness. No skin off my nose, I can take it or leave it and like yourself I’ve had my bags packed a long time ago. It comes down to common sense, and will that be mine or the mob’s? Many reliable sources, mainly medical doctors – those not bought-and-paid-for – have declared that the “social distancing” is utter bullshit. The virus will run its course, making its point before it disappears for a time then reappears again with a vengeance, possibly ten years down the road when greatly deteriorated social conditions will guarantee that this time… millions will die from its mutated strain. That’s what we are looking at. As the old commercial went, “You can pay me now (relatively painlessly) or you can pay me later (much more painfully).”
      Would you blame me for not believing the medical/drug cartels, politicians, media talking heads (I’m only surprised they aren’t wearing white lab coats on stage complete with white face filters ad white gloves), government bureaucracies when all along and until “this” we all knew they were all a pack of liars who blatantly lied about everything? Now I should believe them because the sheeple have been herded into pandemic mode, switching back overnight to mass belief hysteria? I’m laughing, rawgod.
      If I were ‘in charge’ of the insane asylum my advice would be, OK folks, you’ve had your fun, your fear and panic but enough is enough. Go back to doing whatever you were doing and forget your temp madness. Just remember, there is a season for everything, so know which season you are in.

        We are three months into this corona virus. It is worsening every day, and has a long way to go before it gets better. If you were saying go back to your regular life and hope you survive, that would be one thing. It’s what we do everyday anyway. None of us knows when our time is going to be up.
        But that is not what you are saying, at least I’m not hearing it. What I hear is go out and put yourself in harm’s way. There is no need to do that. It might be only a marginal difference, but still it is a difference.
        And as for this natural phenomenum, it is more likely to close down capitalism than anything else we have going for us right now. It has nothing to do with politicians, or a matrix, or even trying to rebalance the world. It’s a fucking virus: blind, deaf, dumb, and deadly. A regular flu lasts 3 or 4 days, maybe a week if it’s bad. This virus is lasting weeks, even months. People tell me is is painful as hell, and most of our pain medications don’t touch this kind of pain. Even for people who are not dying, it makes breathing harsh. Two years ago I was in the hospital for heart surgery. When I woke up I had no air flow into one of my lungs, and I WAS IN PAIN! I kept the whole damn floor awake with my screams. The doctor had not left any orders, there should have been no pain. I begged them to send up an ER doctor to prescribe something, but no one came. Five hours I spent screaming before I got any relief at all. I cannot imagine going through that kind of pain for a month. Not even a week. I’m not saying there is any similarity between my surgery and catching a virus, but pain is pain. I can stand a lot before I ask for help. I wasn’t asking, I was begging as loud as I could.
        This virus is not the flu, this is something much worse. And it isn’t going away. I think I already said that.
        Go ahead, S’T, tell people to live their lives like they always have. You’re only one person, what happens to you is insignificant to anyone but you. But don’t go telling everyone to do that. That is not your job! Where is your compassion now?

        My compassion is holding steady. I follow the socially imposed rules and that is that. As for what to do, I can see that what people, as in sheeple, are doing to themselves at the moment by listening to the lying siren voices is much more detrimental to them than if they just let the thing run its course. But that is another story. What did Popeye used to say? “I ams what I ams” My vision is long term and further to that, I am not ashamed of it. I did say, “if I were in charge” but I am not and I would not take on such a position in any case. As to the validity of my virus comments, well, they are solidly backed by other than lying politicians and media talking heads. Finally, as to the pain, that I cannot comment on since I don’t do sickness or accidents. I’ve never used drugs, haven’t dealt with a medical doctor in over 40 years now and I’m at peace with my current situation, and would remain at peace with it if I developed the virus, pain or no pain. I am a mental/spiritual being temporarily inhabiting a physical body for a very short remaining time. Dotted the “i’s” and crossed the “t’s” and got my ducks in a row rawgod. In turn, I wish you well too!

        Using this “pandemic” as a platform for alternative thinking, I’ve been putting 2 + 2 together and realized this very important aspect of pandemic survival in this modern society. You only need do 2 things. One: stay away from other bipedal entitites with opposable thumbs by 2 meters. Two: have at least 60 rolls of toilet paper in your wall safe. If your safe isn’t big enough, have a larger one installed. What comes after, like food, safe water or clean air, that’s entirely optional.

If I have any of yours and I find them, I’ll ship them back via Canada Post. You should get them for sure in about 7 months, depending how many stops the stage has to make, of course, and whether shipments of toilet paper are being waylaid en route. I got my toilet paper from Costco, if that’s any clue.

        No wonder I couldn’t find it… Now I have to pull the entire pile out of my safe, and check every label. If it’s only one roll, do I still have to send it back? I’ll have to sanitize it, of course, so it may be a bit damp and moldy by the time you get it. I suggest you unroll it very carefully and stretch it on the clothes line. Putting it in the dryer is not recommended. Too much fluff in the filter screen.

        Does this mean you’ve been using MY toilet paper? I bought one of those big economy-sized packs so when it was paid for I would still have at least another 4 rolls! I guess I can be magnanimous and let you keep that last roll (considering you’ve already used the other 23) in an effort to keep the border between Hamiltonia (b/c I flat-out refuse to live in trumplandia) and Canada open and on good terms.*

    I’ve read for some time now that this virus is only contagious largely because we don’t have the antibodies for it. After about 60% of the population has the virus, they will have immunities for it. Unless it’s like the common cold and mutates regularly, Still, even the virus obeys the law of entropy. But, the big juicy surprise is all the viruses and bacteria frozen in the snowpack in Antarctica and the North Pole. As the poles melt, they release their long sleeping microbial load. Wouldn’t it be a shocker if we were dealing with ten or twelve pathogens we had no immunity to? Now that will be a pale horse to ride into town. At least one of those pathogens will cause projectile flatulence and we’ll have no problems accepting social distancing.

      Hi Frank, how to answer that! First, this is blogging, which involves free thought, free choice. If what I say is unpalatable, it might be better for you to “unfollow” and be done with it, or simply delete, as I do, those posts that you really don’t agree with. As for how I come across, that shouldn’t matter unless a reader insists on taking personally what is obviously meant as a broadside. Fact is people ARE sheeple. They desperately need to believe and to follow. Inveterate lying leaders, institutions, media, whatever can suddenly make up “facts” to start a pandemic and because the propaganda is laced with fear and aimed at the already nervous populace, it “takes” and the people “bow and pray to the neon gods they make” (Sound of Silence, Simon and Garfunkle) That’s how it is on planet Earth, with sometimes glaring exceptions. If this virus is as real and deadly as the self appointed propagandist professional liars claim, then people should accept the consequences as “nature” saying you’ve exceeded your sustainable numbers and I’m going to bring those down. But that is not how Earthians think. Mass killing diseases have always been OK except when they crossed the line and stopped making a distinction between dark skinned “savages” who deserved to be enslaved, to starve and to die, and attacked those in the exceptional white west. Then it’s panic time. With your technology, particularly military style and concocted agricultural poisons you kill hundreds of times more people than this virus could ever manage, but that’s ALWAYS been OK with the WASP (and Catholic) west. Legacy of the Roman empire I suppose. Shouldn’t there have been a “pandemic” when Bush massacred over a million Iraqis over false claims to get a free run a Middle Eastern oil? Or over the starved children of Yemen? But no, instead the invaders were cheered. The Saudi war criminals are armed by weapons made in the USA, Britain, France… If I come across as superior, then it’s only because underneath you can sense the truth of it and it is mighty uncomfortable. I don’t to try to be superior, it’s too easy on a world like this to be so if one stands against the mob rules. I refuse to bow to the collective stupidity, selfishness and murderous madness, Frank. If you want me to accept your virus pandemic FIRST END YOUR WARS OF OPPRESSION. If this is unacceptable for you, just unfollow. I won’t sacrifice my integrity for a few back slaps on WordPress.

        Neither the virus nor the wars of oppression are mine. You cannot deny the existence of the virus. There is no direct connection* between the virus and those wars. Like you and the vast majority of “sheeple”, I deplore the wars of oppression, especially those in the Middel East. But they are not only about oil and Europe and the USA’s collective desire to access it. The religious and/or ideological differences that lie behind them are real, not manufactured by some evil conspiracy by your imagined “matrix” or other planet wide secret conspiracy.
        *Although I do not entirely discount the possibility that the virus is the result of genetic modification of a much less virulent type, engineered in one or more biological weapon laboratories and accidentally, not deliberately, released. One such lab being in Wuhan with one iteration of the modification having taken place in Canada. https://insightful.co.in/2020/03/

        Thanks for responding Frank. In context, when I wrote “your” that too was a broadside, not a personal attack, although any individual who in some way supports or agrees with the aims of NATO is guilty of war crimes by association. That’s the problem with claiming to live in a democracy, isn’t it. Based on my own reasoning and observation there is a direct correlation between wars and this “virus”. This virus is a war against facts, against truth, against trust in science, as was the 9-11 event. False flags; misdirection that result in panics, chaos, blame and witch hunts and ultimately in large numbers of deaths that have nothing to do with the original event. I will not deny that there is NO virus – obviously something is going on. What I will continue to deny is the official death rate directly attributable to said COVID-19 corona virus. Please take a few minutes to watch this video, even if you think it’s from a “conspiracy theorist.” Interesting info in there and possibility for follow-up research: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=599&v=bM9aZflBoOU&feature=emb_logo
        We agree on one thing: that virus is most likely a result of genetic modification. However, if it “accidentally” escaped a bio-weapons’ lab how different is that than if it was deliberately released and what difference does it make where it sourced? The point should be, obviously, that such labs should not be permitted to exist. At this point no one supporting any government, communist, socialist, conservative or liberal or any colour or animal symbol in between that operates such places, as well as stock piling nuclear weapons, and prevents whistle blowers from exposing these horrors, is any better than the Nazis of WWII.
        The agenda behind the launching of the panic in association with a “new” virus has been achieved. Small businesses have all but been destroyed, so keen were they to go along with Big Brother, thus increasing profits to large corporations and a new level of authoritarian control has been achieved and accepted by the confused but believing hoi polloi. There will be no return to “normal” as there never was after 9-11. One small step for technocracy, one giant step towards the hive mind.

      I should think that anyone with a certain level of “intelligence” can sense when things have gotten seriously out of whack. Anyone can tell when the ship is listing 30 degrees to port in a calm sea that the “unsinkable” is sinking. So the question is, what to do about it? Accept the inevitable, or try to patch the hole below the water line? So far with C-19, it’s “Stay on board people, we’ll use our technology and we’ll patch the leak. Just believe… would we lie to you? 🤔
