Is "The Law of Attraction" For Real?

 We've all heard about "The Secret, " Mind over Matter and on and on.. I've lost count of the number of people I know with "Vision Boards."
"Believe It Achieve It."  Right?
Well there is no doubt that a Positive Outlook is helpful in many situations. But the concept of imagining things into reality is at best overly optimistic.
If you want to know a way you can actually use visualization to achieve real world target goals take a look:

Also here's a great piece from Psychology Today on Mental Practice.

Wait...What? Is the Earth Really Flat?

Pull up a chair and take a deep "rounded" breath as we explore the possibility that everything you have ever been told about the Universe is a lie.
The Intro here:

Okay there you have it.
These are some highlights I hope you found them either entertaining, useful or even both. If you want to explore more there is an endless array of clicks ahead of you- as this seems like a topic that is going to stick around for at least a couple of hundred more years.
All the best to All my Brothers and Sisters under the Firmament!

Dreaming of The Dead and My Experience

Frankly there is  quite a bit on the internet about this. Much of it is too woo for me.

The Ancient Handbag Mystery...Huh?

A strange motif repeats again and again in multiple locations across the ancient world.

Eat Fat to get Skinny? All About The Ketogenic Diet.

For decades it's been taken as gospel that  Dietary Fat is the enemy. What if it's all wrong?
The Ketogenic Diet is a way of eating that promotes High Fat. Moderate Protein and Low Carbohydrate eating as the Gold Standard for maintaining both a healthy weight and a Healthy life.

Let's get an intro with this article from Men's Health.

An overview from The Diet Doctor. 

The Keto Diet Explained:

And from Eric Berg:

Personally I have been following an eating plan of Low Carbohydrate/High Protein for years and have recently upped my dietary fat intake. I have found this to be very beneficial for my energy levels and plan to continue. (As I'm writing this I am drinking  coffee with added Coconut Oil.)

 The Mothman both the creepy entity and the strange encounters and experiences that surrounded it have drizzled into the American subconscious.

Quantum Computing is in its early stages but there is every indication that these machines are connecting with Parallel Realities- Could this potentially alter minor elements in our reality?

What's the Deal with Ayn Rand and Objectivism?

 Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, Anthem... the writer of these works is a Hero to some and a crazed Evil Harpie to others. Whatever your take, she was a formidable woman by almost anyone's standards. The movement (Philosophy) she founded is known as Objectivism.

Here's the Trailer for "The Fountainhead" Movie:

Ayn Rand YES!
The Federalist
Real Clear Markets
Jerry Kirkpatrick

Ayn Rand: NO!
From Salon: Libertarian Nightmare
CBS: Dead WrongWhy I'm not an Objectivist.

Did we really go the Moon? Was Stanley Kubrick Involved? Did the Astronauts see Aliens there? Does It Make us Nuts?

 Where to begin?

Here's a handy list of the Six Moon Landings.

 Consider this post a Highlight Reel of the most prominent Moon Weirdness Speculation.


Some people believe the Moon Mission in 1969 was Hoaxed by the US government.

Okay- here's a useful 1-2-3:

1) We went to the moon and all the film we see is an accurate depiction.
2) We never went to the moon- and the film is a fake.
 3) We went to the moon and NASA learned something that it can't tell anyone.
Of course there are other possibilities like; we went but screwed it up and so we produced a trip and a walk etc

Here's a portion of the news conference with the returning Astronauts:

They do certainly look uncomfortable. Were they hiding something?

If you have the time here is the Entire News Conference:

Marcus Allen on "The Moon Hoax"

 Some say Stanley Kubrick was hired to produce the Moon Landing.

Kay Weidner on Kubrick and the Moon.

 What a second! Did we really go to the Moon!?

From Huffington post


Neil deGrasse Tyson and Joe Rogan Debate:

 Five Refutations:

And Finally Phil Plait:


Okay, so maybe  we really went to the moon.
Why were the astronauts so down cast at the  Apollo 11press conference?
Was it because they were silenced about Alien Contact?

And this recent video Showing Movement on the Moon?

Did the Chinese discover a Base on the Moon?

Okay Maybe we went and it seems unlikely that there are Aliens, let alone aliens on the moon.
But the Moon does make some of us crazy right?
After all Luna=Moon =Lunatic-For Sure...Right?
Well here's Scientific American on this very topic.
And from Psychology Today.
And as the capper on this Lunacy Section, An Entertaining Quick Presentation from Neil deGrasse Tyson (Yes I know twice in one post -but he is an Astronomer)

Okay, there it was, rather long for what is at best an overview but we've been staring at this object in the night sky for... heck who knows how long.
Later Gazers,

The Golden Ratio in the Quantum World?

Sub Atomic Golden Ratio

It seems that from year to year the Wall between the Macro and the Micro Physical Universe gets lower and lower.
No Woo just Wooah!

There appears to be Scientific proof that Atomic particles in resonance mirror the Golden Ratio.

My Watery Nightmare: Water Demons, Wet Linda and Reflections on "The Drowning Project"

Where ideas come from who can really say. Most times if you try to explain a genesis  you sound kind of... well you know.
Anyway somewhere in the mid 0's I felt compelled to write a story about a water demon.
The location was a community pool in an upper-middle class neighborhood in California.
This developed into a viral video project titled "The Drowning Project."

This was in 2009-2010.

Here is a Teaser:

And another:

 And here is the project itself.

The Drowning Project Part One:

The Drowning Project Part Two:

 It's still out and about in the marzipan of online video.
There ended up being a lot of spokes on this project (including a screenplay that builds on this universe) So you never know...
Anyway be careful where you swim-
