Wear a mask

WEAR A MASK.Pollute and poison yourself, other people and the planet.

Teach the children fear-based decision-making; craven compliance with any Government dictate no matter how stupid; rejection of common sense, reason and facts when deciding how it is best to live. Children are malleable and the most powerful lessons they learn are unspoken. Actions speak louder than words.

We have a duty to ensure they will fit the system whatever the system may be, some appear to believe. I personally believe we have a duty to help children make their way through an often challenging world but to do so with courage, common sense, integrity, independence and a questioning mind, albeit, to lesser and greater degrees. Remember, what you are doing is for the good of all, we are being told. That approach is always a great vote-winner.

Either what you do is what you truly believe is for the greater good or it is what someone else tells you is for a greater good which only they understand properly. Which is why it can be so confusing. That ploy also works well with a lot of people.

However, for those prepared to think outside the box, or actually within the box of facts, reason and common sense, some data taken from the Australian Government website which demonstrates the level of risk from Covid is very low. https://www.health.gov.au/…/coronavirus-covid-19-case…

It is harder to find the research articles showing masks are useless on this count, including surgical masks, because the censors now hide it, but do some research into virology and decide if you think a mask prevents viral particles escaping. As one cardiologist said, it would be like controlling mosquitos behind a chain fence.

But, let us trust that there will always be some research being done and it can be found. At least temporarily. Anything which challenges the running narrative is subject to interference so it does not come up quickly in any online search.

Quote: For scientists, the prospect of continued mask use in everyday life suggests areas for further research. In our view, further research is particularly desirable in the gynecological (fetal and embryonic) and pediatric fields, as children are a vulnerable group that would face the longest and, thus, most profound consequences of a potentially risky mask use. Basic research at the cellular level regarding mask-induced triggering of the transcription factor HIF with potential promotion of immunosuppression and carcinogenicity also appears to be useful under this circumstance.

Our scoping review shows the need for a systematic review.The described mask-related changes in respiratory physiology can have an adverse effect on the wearer’s blood gases sub-clinically and in some cases also clinically manifest and, therefore, have a negative effect on the basis of all aerobic life, external and internal respiration, with an influence on a wide variety of organ systems and metabolic processes with physical, psychological and social consequences for the individual human being.https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/18/8/4344/htm

Australian Government data.Australia has 25.7 million people as at July 2021.There have been 32,269 cases of Covid diagnosed. That represents 1.2 people per thousand.There have been 915 deaths recorded out of the 32,269 cases recorded.⁠That means the survival rate in Australia is 92.78%. Currently 1,068 cases. They are classified as mild, serious, critical. 99% of all Covid cases in Australia are considered mild.

At present, and this is a couple of days since these numbers were crunched from the Federal Government site, of cases, 1,590 were deemed mild, isolating at home and 18 are serious or critical. ⁠In the last 24 hours 180,180 tests performed. 23 million 310,294 tests done since Covid was recognised. Each test costs a minimum of $100 to perform. ⁠

For every 1,000 people tested 1.4 people are diagnosed in Australia. 183,180 tests in last 24 hours and less than .7 people per thousand diagnosed.⁠Covid deaths – 317 deaths were in people 90 plus, 381 deaths in people 80-89; 162 deaths in group 70 to 79, 38 deaths in 60-69; 21 deaths in 0-59. No female under the age of 50 has died from Covid in Australia. Five males under the age of 50 have died of Covid. That includes everyone who is chronically ill, with co-morbidities.⁠

So this is not a disease of everyone statistically. It is no threat to the young and not a great threat to the healthy of any age.⁠9,149,817 shots administered with 39,077 reports of adverse effects. So 4.3 people per thousand experience an adverse reaction.⁠According to the TGA 377 people have died after the jab. The TGA confirmed four died FROM the jab, with 883 confirmed cases of bloodclotting. Other diseases and syndromes reported by the TGA and many others are being investigated. What those investigations reveal may or may not be made public I would guess.⁠

You are three times more likely statistically to report or suffer an adverse reaction to the vaccine than you are to get Covid following Government guidelines. ⁠It is worth tracking the US system of VAERS while remaining aware that estimates are less than 10% of vaccine injuries are reported.

In other words, while Australia might do better, the reported injuries/deaths are not going to be accurate given human nature and the power of the system to repress such information.

Conspiracy and theory

There is a lot of talk about fake news and conspiracy theories which in the past we would have called rumours. This is when the art of ‘cherry-picking’ becomes very useful because in rumours or conspiracy theories, the ‘cherries’ are the fruit you must find.

There are always rumours. They are stories which generally come to life because someone who knows something says something to someone else and so it goes. The jungle drums begin beating. It has ever been thus for humans and social media is just the modern version of jungle drums.

Rumours also tap into that great human survival quality, intuition. Without going into it too deeply, as humans we are connected beyond mere words, machines and obvious communication. We communicate with each other at unseen and generally unacknowledged levels.

In other words, like the bees in a hive, we humans know things because other humans know something. That is why ‘word spreads’ so easily and while ‘word of mouth’ is not necessarily completely reliable, neither is it ever completely wrong either. There will be elements of fact, truth, reality, scattered noisily between the thoughts and words, and however scrambled the message may become, there will be a message for those who take the time to look.

Social media also works very hard to censor the ‘drums’ and to limit exchanges of information, rumours, and what are called conspiracy theories. Fake News it is now called.

It is worth remembering that rumours will always have some basis in truth even if the story becomes more colourful as it passes through human minds and mouths. So, what could the ‘truths’ be in what are now called conspiracy theories?

WHAT ARE THE CONSPIRACY THEORIES

1. That Covid is a bioweapon.

2. That a cabal of powerful people want to reset society and the world.

3. That someone, somewhere wants to kill off a lot of people to reduce the world’s population, or rather, solve what is seen as a problem of over-population.

4. That these Covid vaccines are designed to sterilise humans.

5. That these Covid tests or vaccines are designed to implant microchips so society can be tracked and more easily controlled.

6. that the Covid vaccines will change your DNA

There are probably more, but let us consider these few.

BIOWEAPONS

There is no doubt that ‘gain of function’ research goes on and while the claims are that this is done for the best of intentions, any student of history and human nature knows that the ‘best of intentions’ can lead to the worst of outcomes very easily. In truth, wherever things like, ‘for the good of all,’ ‘in your best interests,’ ‘a better world,’ ‘for your own sake,’ accompany any proposal, think twice and implement even more common sense and caution for an even more important maxim is: No good deed goes unpunished. In other words, in every gift there is a curse.

Is ‘gain of function’ research dangerous? It most certainly is. Could it be used in a bioweapon? It most certainly could.

Is ‘gain of function’ research an important part of vaccine development? Probably not.
Quote: Thomas Inglesby, director of the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins, told me last year that he doesn’t think the benefits for vaccine development hold up in most cases. “I haven’t seen any of the vaccine companies say that they need to do this work in order to make vaccines,” he pointed out. “I have not seen evidence that the information people are pursuing could be put into widespread use in the field.” https://www.vox.com/2020/5/1/21243148/why-some-labs-work-on-making-viruses-deadlier-and-why-they-should-stop

So, ‘gain of function’ research, which we now know does happen could certainly be part of the development of a bioweapon. Is the belief, rumour, conspiracy theory therefore so silly? Not at all. That Covid began as part of a bioweapon experiment is highly likely. That it would be used or is being used as a bioweapon is not so likely.

A belief, rumour, theory associated with this is that research began in the United States but security fears led to it being outsourced to China? Is this likely? Certainly. Is this possible? Absolutely. And could many of the world’s top science-medical organisations have been involved in this research? Of course they could.

And, if they were, would that not make Governments very nervous about anyone finding out what the involvement of their science-medical organisations had been? You betcha. Would that not also make Governments hypersensitive to possible outcomes and liable to over-react, do more, not less, become more than a tad hysterical in response? Of course it would.

So, one could easily argue that this rumour/conspiracy theory has a good chance of being sourced in some solid truths, with no doubt, variations on the various themes involved. What we do know is that never before in human history have the healthy been locked up in the face of an infectious ‘disease’ and never before have people needed to have a test for a viral disease to find out if they are SICK. Asymptomatic infection, as claimed for Covid, is a new invention which has no basis in immunology or virology. In fact it is itself a classic conspiracy theory.

CABAL RESET

How logical or sensible is it for people to believe that a powerful group wishes to re-organise the world, reset societies, make massive changes to how we live?

Since there is such a proposal/plan from very powerful people and organisations this is not such a strange thing for people to believe. The World Economic Forum has mooted such a plan and stated that the Covid Pandemic is a great opportunity to implement it.

Now, the plan is, on paper anyway, not very specific, but rarely do plans in the beginning ever reflect outcomes. And that is because humans are opportunistic and when changes are made there will always be unforeseen actions and consequences because it is impossible to think through every possible action, reaction or outcome. This is why ideas which are great on paper like Communism, Capitalism, Welfare, Universal Healthcare and Religion can fail so terribly: because they do not take into account human nature.

And the most powerful ideas/forces are those with good intentions. It is easier to drag people along if you can convince them and yourself that this is in the best interests of everyone and that ultimately it is for the greater good. No doubt this is why the original plans are always so light and fluffy.

Quote: According to Klaus Schwab the Founder and Executive Chairman of WEF: “The pandemic represents a rare but narrow opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.”

The WEF suggests that the most urgent reason for a reset is the COVID-19 crisis which has serious long-term consequences for economic growth, public debt, employment, and human wellbeing. If left unaddressed some believe the world will be left less sustainable, less equal, and more fragile. https://adepteconomics.com.au/what-is-the-great-reset-agenda-and-is-there-need-for-concern/

So, in essence, despite the plethora of stories around trying to calm suspicion about a GREAT RESET there most certainly are such plans in existence and no doubt in motion. I personally don’t believe it is so easy to reset humanity or society but my reading of history means I know that there will be plenty of people prepared to give it a damn good try and at any cost.

So this ‘conspiracy theory’ has more than one leg on which to stand.

REDUCING POPULATION
This one would seem to not make much sense given that profits require consumers and the fewer consumers the lower the profits. Elite lifestyles also require plenty of cogs in the wheels to keep things turning comfortably.

Would the world benefit from reduced population? For the climate change alarmists there might be some gristle in this one, but overall, it seems fairly flimsy unless one is heavily invested in the funeral parlour industry.

However, when humans suspect that someone or something out there is up to no good, they will fear for their life and the lives of those they love first of all.

So this one only stands as a very common and universal human fear of death. In short, it is not a surprising ‘theory’ even if it is unlikely.

STERILISING HUMANS

Given the plethora of material on how the planet is sagging under its population weight, this one is possible. Although the irony is that the human population is on its way down anyway with one-child policies now revealing ‘unseen’ outcomes in the world’s two most populous countries, China and India, combined with fewer children being born to couples in the Western world.

It is hard to see what anyone could gain from this one since fertility rates are dropping horrifically worldwide anyway, no doubt from the fact that people and planet are drowning in synthetic hormones from the contraceptive pill and health is worse than it was, particularly in children.

So this ‘conspiracy theory’ is probably legless. But only if people are aware of the true nature of human infertility over recent decades and increasing.

MICROCHIP IMPLANTS

Well they certainly exist and are already in use to a minor degree. https://www.bbvaopenmind.com/en/technology/innovation/technology-under-your-skin/

Could or would a Government insert such a thing into citizens without their knowledge? It is not likely but it is certainly possible under the ‘we believe this is for your own good and in the best interests of society’ clause.

History is littered with horrors done in the name of the ‘greatest good,’ for this is the big catchcry for tyrants and a sucker call for too many citizens. We humans do not change much and the same themes and forces can be found in every tyranny in our recorded history. Which is why, no doubt, the maxim, ‘it seemed like a good idea at the time,’ came into existence.

So, this conspiracy theory probably goes into the, not likely but highly possible basket. Which means as a rumour/theory/belief it is hardly unusual and simply reflects the human capacity to detect a potential ‘shitfest’ before it happens.

VACCINES CHANGING YOUR DNA

All of the vaccines for Covid are genetic vaccines which involve manipulation (meddling) with cell function. The mRNA vaccines, Pfizer, use synthetic RNA to ‘instruct’ cell function. 

Quote: RNA evolved billions of years ago and is naturally found in every cell in your body. Scientists think RNA originated in the earliest life forms, even before DNA existed. The process that converts DNA to mRNA to protein is the foundation for how the cell functions. https://theconversation.com/what-is-mrna-the-messenger-molecule-thats-been-in-every-living-cell-for-billions-of-years-is-the-key-ingredient-in-some-covid-19-vaccines-158511

So, this messenger for DNA has been created artificially, synthetically, in a laboratory and will be injected into your body to manipulate cell function in ways never done before. Does that process equate with ‘changing your DNA?’ If one wished to ‘muddy the public waters,’ the answer would be No.

But if one wished to nitpick ever so slightly, the answer would be, Yes, because synthetic RNA, the messenger for DNA, is manipulating cell function in ways never done before and who really knows what the impact on DNA might be since none of the genetic vaccines are approved which means full and final testing and safety studies, i.e. outcomes, were not completed and are not known. If a process involving the conversion of DNA to mRNA to protein is something which happens naturally and has done for millions of years, then what impact will it have where the mRNA is manmade, synthetic, artificial and it is interfering in a natural process? We have yet to find out.

So, could this new genetic treatment change your DNA in some way? Yes it could. Is it likely? We don’t know. Is it possible? Yes it is. Are the science-medical answers to this fear, rumour, conspiracy theory a bit fluffy? Yes they are because they must be and because even the experts do not truly know what outcomes will be. They believe this synthetic RNA will self-destruct as natural RNA does but, since this genetic experiment is a poorly tested FIRST, the fact is they do not know and public fears are not only natural they are sensible.

The above-cited conspiracy theories are mostly likely to have some grains of truth and mostly possible. In essence, the most sensible thing to do in the face of what is called a ‘conspiracy theory’ is to not summarily reject it, but do a bit of work and have a good, long, hard think about whether or not it is possible, if it is likely, and are these outcomes you would support and defend?

One thing is certain, the human capacity to be suspicious, to exercise scepticism and to communicate feelings, thoughts, theories, doubts, fears, hopes, facts is what has enabled us to survive and generally thrive for millennia.

There is also such a thing as gut instinct and we need to remember that. Humans lie and never more so than when they have powerful vested agendas. They lie even more when there are profits at risk and when they know they can ‘sell their story’ to the public in the name of good intentions. These realities are recorded throughout our human history and we ignore and forget their truths at our peril.

When we stop asking questions, stop thinking for ourselves and censor those who try, we are betraying the freedoms for which so many fought and died and squandering the future and hopes of our children. Sure, it might not be that bad, or that dangerous, or that terrible – then again it might be. We don’t know, we just do not know what is going on at present or what outcomes we potentially face. And hindsight, while a wonderful thing, is seeing things clearly when it is too late.

Scepticism is needed more than ever in times like this. Not cynicism, but healthy, questioning, open-minded, clear-headed scepticism. Your Government does not have your best interests at heart. It has its own. The same applies to the science-medical industries, the media and every other system or organisation which can take an opportunity to take an opportunity. Become a questioner. Carpe Diem!

Time

Within our minds we construct time,

to make the world we know, a little

better managed, with limits we can

show, which will within the stretch

of years, make sense of moments 

small, and let us count the living

hours in ways we think we chose.

We are surrounded by ghosts

We are surrounded by ghosts,

tangled in the days, the web

of weeks, which weave in 

months and years; those ghosts 

of the dead, once loved, once

dreamt, once hoped, once for

a moment thought, felt, held

in a bright possibility, which

failed to endure; and yet they

roam the edges of dark day

and shining night, always. We

are surrounded by ghosts….

Discordant

The mind displays discordant,

the monkey plays the tune,

in clamouring confusion, 

it staggers round the room.

With nimble-fingered focus

it shuffles all the thoughts,

spits gently on the territory,

through teeth of evil force.

and in that

whisper, drew

sodden drapes

PALESTINE ACHES

The dead have silent teeth and empty throats,
they have no voice with which to speak, to cry
of all the horrors they have seen and been and
known; to call for justice, freedom from the

power of those who kill to claim what is not
theirs, the land of others, who suffocate children
in waves of dust and shredded metal moments,
where blood and tears and destiny are driven

deep into the waiting earth; dressing broken
fragments of their lives, their souls, their
hearts, that costuming of evil which war does
primp and posture into place, for those who

are the victims, for those who cannot speak,
and for whom the only hope can be for others,
that their throats are not empty, their teeth
are not silent, their words are not crushed

beneath the boot of evil and injustice and
military might, and that in the darkened
quietness of this awful, suppurating wound,
their only hope is that the voices of the living

will be speaking out for those who lie strewn,
fleshed like scattered crops, in that harvest
which bleeds and grieves and slowly seeds
the fields of future justice in aching Palestine.

Final solution


Raised across the parapet of mind,
words frowned in distant gathering,
horizon-huddled holding to the edge
of possibility defined, waiting for 

release upon the brooding ledge of
endless misunderstandings, restless
as they honed edges to deadly shine,
ready to cut without mercy; wielded

in a winnowing of mechanical fear,
compressing dry, cracked stalks of
hope into bales, tied for distant, ever
imagined Winters where life could

chew listlessly at  dried remnants
of what had once been lush, ebullient
green salvation, thrust from fallow
earth, reaching always for the distant

anxious sky where sullen blues held
court for scattered sunbeams, tripping
through realities which danced slowly
at the bidding of bestial breeze, and

delicate, whispering winds which 
rattled hollow husks, bereft of fertile 
grains, abandoned, sterile, grieving
in those fields of futures known, 

and unknown, where Occam thoughts
spread like scythes, laying waste,
rendering, reducing potential harvest
in death knells of dusty, dirty dying;

so did the paddocks sigh piteously,
deprived of all which had been 
promised, before the war within
demanded one last, final solution.

On getting old (er)

What is this getting old? We feel no different

 in ourselves but the world sees us differently

and as skin relaxes into wrinkled submission, 

we begin to write new stories for who we are 

and what life holds. Because it has been told,

that six score years and ten, is an allotted life

even though, many live beyond and have done

always, from the age of seventy, we fall into

the trap of believing in something called ‘old,’

when all we ever are, is ‘being,’ regardless of

age, or years, or softened skin and so much 

experience, that we see the world now in a

different way to how we saw it in youth – 

even though the world itself has not changed

so much, and we feel no different inside, but

life demands we pay attention in new and 

more flexible ways; that we soften and fold

in on ourselves, as our skin does in humble

submission to the reality of time and years.
