sabian symbolism is vivid

The Sabian Symbols are a set of 360 symbolic images associated with the 360 degrees of the zodiacal circle. They were given birth in San Diego, California, in 1925 by Marc Edmund Jones and Elsie Wheeler, an extraordinary clairvoyant. Today, the 360 symbols are widely used in astrology in order to gain a deeper understanding of the influence of a planet located at that degree. (hmm.. interesting! below are the sabian symbols for my own birthchart 2/13/76 info found on www.astrowin.org)

Moon in Cancer 28
Sabian Symbol: An American Indian girl, college trained but returned to her people, seeks to win their friendship for her lover.
Kozminsky Symbol: An old mill-wheel lying on the bank of a lily pond, with pretty creepers growing over it.

Mercury in Capricorn 29
Sabian Symbol: Afternoon tea is served in a gypsy parlor patronized by socialites and here a young lady reads the tea leaves.

a watcher awaits

Just wanna scrapbook this for the inspiration I might require at a later date...

Last night [Feb 10], a military officer guarding the tens of thousands celebrating in Cairo threw down his rifle and joined the demonstrators, yet another sign of the ordinary Egyptian soldier's growing sympathy for the democracy demonstrators. We had witnessed many similar sentiments from the army over the past two weeks. But the critical moment came on the evening of 30 January when, it is now clear, Mubarak ordered the Egyptian Third Army to crush the demonstrators in Tahrir Square with their tanks after flying F-16 fighter bombers at low level over the protesters.

Many of the senior tank commanders could be seen tearing off their headsets – over which they had received the fatal orders – to use their mobile phones. They were, it now transpires, calling their own military families for advice. Fathers who had spent their lives serving the Egyptian army told their sons to disobey, that they must never kill their own people.

Thus when General Hassan al-Rawani told the massive crowds yesterday evening that "everything you want will be realised – all your demands will be met", the people cried back: "The army and the people stand together – the army and the people are united. The army and the people belong to one hand."

Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law. Love is the law, love under will.

There's a common misperception of Aleister Crowley as "the most evil man in the world" that would have such notions as "Man has the right to kill if he will" interpreted to mean murder but that is not what Thelemites are referring to at all, not in the slightest. They do mean it in the same argument used by gun enthusiast and members of the NRA but even then not quite as much as it would seem. The sentiment is that one should do what they will at all costs and if someone is hell bent on thwarting them, stopping at nothing, then one has the right to remove that obstacle so that their will can be accomplished. In the most basic sense it is the will to live, pure and simple. Man refuses to not adhere to the belief that he has a purpose in life due to the fact that he was born so it is fully justifiable to protect his own life from any and all adversary that would take it from him. Here the line is blurred in that we only perceive physical threat or rather acknowledge it in the here and now and only take action against it when it can be proven a clear and present danger when presented or maneuvered in the flesh of the one who is the originator of intent. Murder is otherwise celebrated as victory and success and exists in every single facet of Western civilization in a system known as capitalism. It is vitriol!

"Capitalism inevitably and by virtue of the very logic of its civilization creates, educates and subsidizes a vested interest in social unrest.
 -Joseph A. Schumpeter (1883–1950) Austrian-American economist

Why? Because by definition it is the privatization of the means of production, distribution, and exchange, characterized by the freedom of capitalists to operate or manage their property for profit in competitive conditions. Capitalism must first create a competitive condition in order to be sustainable. So what has become of this? A society conditioned to maintain a consistent rate of growth in order to establish a persistent need for commodities so that there is the constant opportunity for free enterprise to flourish. Doesn't sound bad, does it? Of course not, we are conditioned to be opportunist. Opportunity means freedom, not restraint, right? Freedom for the few to commit murder of the populace justified as success or survival of the fittest due to what the economists/psychologists/physicists (often referred to as Illuminati) keep secret yet is very much common knowledge amongst them: It is vitriol!

A growth rate of 7% which is perceived by most (myself included because I'm terrible at arithmetic) as reasonably low and harmless is perceived by capitalist as highly profitable. Why? Because anything with a growth rate of 7% will double in 10 years. You probably won't believe me if I tell you what this means to us as humans so I won't bother with explaining it.. I'll let professor do it instead. Here watch a bit of this:

the time is at hand!

blah, blah, blah what she said at the water cooler.. blah, blah, price of oil.. blah, blah, blah  on the stock market...

meh, meh, meh I'm sick.. wah, I gotta work


There's a revolution going on right outside your door. People of the world are waking up to the fact that we have been enslaved by what's called "the economy". Now is the time for us to rise up and taken back our freedom and NO America is NOT the home of free but maybe the brave, it remains to be seen...

Dialogue be damned

Whenever I reflect upon my short comings, paranoid thinking due to incidents of abuse in my formative years that shattered my trust, and the...
