As an avid reader, I'm interested in what books you've written and what genre.

How is life in Mexico? Mexico is much in the US news of late because of the drug trafficking issues. You were right to leave, GB was a disaster for our country and unfortunately, I don't think it's going to get better any time soon.  Very interested in your impressions as an expat.

Be well!

  • We have problems because we stray from what is innocent and pure.

Posted 31 July 2010 - 01:30 AM

I think you can gather my credentials from the following random thoughts.  Seems what this Post has evolved into.  Well, in all honesty, I may as well state now that I have no credentials. I'm not an expert on anything, but I'll continue with this anyway so you can maybe understand my posts here a little better, though probably not.  

I'm male, 50-ish, raised in Chicagoland, USA.  I'm sensitive and street-smart alternately.  Someone once said I was a nice person.  I said it comes and goes.

I like sports cars instead of stationwagons.  I like Formula One racing instead of NASCAR racing.  I like emperical evidence instead of belief systems.  I like science fiction better than pop fiction.  I like reading classic literature so I can tell what's good and what's trash.

Being old, of course, leaves me out of the loop.  It's not cool to be old.  People in their 20's laugh at old people.  When I was in my 20's I laughed at old people.  There  used to be the expression, "Don't trust anyone over 30."  Now, with my experience, I find it's probably true.  Sorry.  

I like the best 10% and the worst 10% of anything.  Everything in between I'm not too interested in.  

My childhood desire was to be a Philosopher/Exotic Dancer.  I later learned Philosophy was too convoluted, and Exotic Dancing was frowned upon by my accountant father.  I used to hide from my accountant father alot.

I remember a teacher in 7th grade read a poem by e.e.cummings. He said he was a nonconformist. I thought, yeah, that's what I want to be, a non-conformest!  Even when I was a little kid I didn't conform to conventional society.  "Question Authority" was my motto then and now.  Probably why teachers didn't like me. Probably why alot of people in authority didn't like me. They still usually don't.  Maybe because I'm cruel enough to sometimes tell the truth.  I'm usually well thought of by the peasants, though.    

I watch clouds.  One can learn alot from watching clouds.

I also love watching hawks slowly circling effortlessly.  Action without effort.  Best way.

I don't like generalizations. People are individuals.  However, if I were to classify people, I'd divide them into two classes:  Hip people and Square people.  Squares take themselves seriously, are experts and have credentials.  Hips are just amused by it all, don't take themselves seriously, are not usually experts and usually don't have credentials.  I'm a musician, so I guess I must be hip, but that's a generalization, so I guess it doesn't count.  

However, I try not to take myself too seriously.  Probably another reason I'm not an expert and have no credentials.  

I've been a musician all my life (play bass, sing, write songs).  Probably why I watch clouds: Visual music.  I enjoy many kinds of music.  At home as a child, my mother listened to classical music and played the piano, so I learned to love and understand Beethoven early.  I like jazz and classic rock.  Mostly, popular music stopped being interesting to listen to about 1980.  I'm hoping something interesting will happen in the corporate music factories before I die, but I doubt it.  

I've always been interested in science.  Einstein was my boyhood hero.  As a teenager I learned Einstein liked fooling around with the girls.  He was also my teenage hero.

I've read alot about astronomy, cosmology, relativity theory, quantum mechanics, but still I'm not an expert in these fields.  Just an interested bystander.

I'm also interested in consciousness.  That's how I learned how to spell it.  It's a great mystery.  

I enjoy making digital images.  Especially images that are counter-intuitive. Well, they're not really counter-intuitive, I just like using that term because it makes me appear sophisticated.

There's a movie and television forum here, but I don't own a television and I don't go to the movies.  I do like films from the Classic Hollywood era, though, and film-noir.  It's because I'm old.

I think about UFO's and extra-terrestrials.  I have make-believe Alien friends, Zarkor and Zerak who are an outlet for my imagination on this subject.  I think they're make-believe, though possibly they are in my head because of Alien psychic abilities.  It's hard to tell.

I'm interested in Ways of Liberation.  When I was 14 I read 'The Way of Zen', by Alan Watts.  It was a revelation in that I had always seen the world in that way, and here's somebody smart enough to write a book about how I see the world.

Besides Zen and Daoism, Alan Watts, and all that, I like J. Krishnamurti:  "A mind untouched by thought...the end of knowledge."  Unfettered awareness is what it means.  But I still can think when I need to.  

Here I admit what I really, trully am:  Breath.  Breathe in, breathe out.  That's all one needs to be.  Everything else is extra.

Here are some more extras:

I've been in the US Army wherein I learned many methods of how to avoid work.

I write and illustrate humorous comic books.  Zarkor and Zerak stuff, my Aliens who have Adventures around the Galaxy.  

I achieved the distinction of graduating from High School, despite spending most of my time looking out the window.  One can learn alot from looking out of windows.

I hated English in school particualrly because the teachers kept telling me I put too many commas in my sentences.  Now, I put as many commas in my sentences, as I possibly can.

I've studied art.  Renaissance art and 20th century art.  Renaissance art because of it's sweet beauty, and 20th century art because of it's non-conformist attitude toward sweet beauty, which conforms to 20th century asthetic.

I could go on, but talking about one's self is boreing to others, and not a very healthy occupation.  Also, because it's not really honest in that I have to leave alot out.  Reading the previous posts here, I like the ones best by those who admit how stupid they think they are.  I think I'm stupid, too, in my own way.  Probably why not too many here reply to my replies.  I lack credentials.  I respect people with lots of credentials, but instead of  accumulating them, I've spent a considerable amount of my time looking out of windows and watching clouds. Maybe that's a different kind of credential-accumulation.

Credentials? I don't have any credentials, so far as I know.  Apart from knowing things, of course, that no one else knows.  This is actually probably true. Everyone knows something that no one else does. Think about it for a moment.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

lol I thought you were going into the 'badges' scene from the movie, 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre'. "Where are your badges?"   "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!"  Just change 'credentials' for 'badges'.

The video won't play here, http://www.youtube.c...ing badges&aq=7

But I think you're right.  We all know things no one else knows.
