Beatles Plus...

In looking back, the Beatles were in a sense over done and many of their touted hits are (in my opinion) really only so-so, but they did as well as anyone if they only had to go on their genuinely good to better songs. Well, just within the past week someone in one of my music lists uploaded a collection of some 80 Beatles covers done by a variety of artists old and new. What I did then was process (remember "process precedes image" -- in this case an image of the Beatles) to get or create my best image of the Beatles from that set; and making my selections based on good to better performance and good to better song -- if not both I did not include the song as a final choice (though I have to admit "Yellow Submarine" as a song is getting borderline -- but it's all right; the 101 Strings performance of "Something" is in a similar way -- but both in all are all right and so are included.) Plus I cut a little slack for some based on novelty. Last, I also threw in from my own collection Tom Jones singing "Hey Jude." You'll notice, there are three renditions of "All My Loving" which to me is probably my most liked Beatles song of all. Of course, this end result Beatles portrait is my own, and equally of course, is to that extent subjective. But then what painting, in the final analysis, isn't? [All tracks are in mp3 zipped.]

* "All My Loving" with Annette Funicello
* "All My Loving" with Margareta Pislaru si Sincron (Romania)
* "All My Loving" with Jimmy Griffin
* "Fool On the Hill" with Les Miladys (Canada)
* "Something" with 101 Strings
* "Yellow Submarine" with Enoch Light orchestra
* "I Should Have Known Better" with the Naturals
* "Hey Jude" with Tom Jones
* "Eleanor Rigby" with Erick Saint Laurent
* "Yesterday" with Chet Atkins

Later Note. I did not mean to suggest that the above were all or the Beatles only good to better songs; rather, this list, of course, is merely one selection of some of those songs.

"Hardly any of these surrounding nations cared for what to the Greeks was the very essence of life liberty to be, to think, to speak, and to do. Every one of these peoples except the Phoenicians lived under despots, surrendered their souls to superstition, and had small experience of the stimulus of freedom or the life of reason. That was why the Greeks called them, all too indiscriminately, barbaroi, barbarians; a barbarian was a man content to believe without reason and to live without liberty. In the end the two conceptions of life the mysticism of the East and the rationalism of the West would fight for the body and soul of Greece. Rationalism would win under Pericles, as under Caesar, Leo X, and Frederick; but mysticism would always return. The alternate victories of these complementary philosophies in the vast pendulum of history constitute the essential biography of Western civilization."
~ Will Durant, The Life of Greece, p. 70.

Holding on -- Late March 1918.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

And I ask you how can the mob and despots hold such political sway and powerfully sustain and perpetuate themselves down through the ages but for the intervention and their nurturing by spirit people who are criminal masterminds? Where else do they obtain their drive, their intelligence and expertise? From reading Machiavelli? From street smarts? Or attending tyrant school?

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

So, as we said, they want to purchase and excuse evil with their heaven. But they cannot purchase and excuse evil with their heaven if their heaven isn't really worth anything -- not with us certainly. Defeat evil then by rejecting their false heaven. Yet how do we know it is false? Because, among other reasons, its people are verbally uncommunicative; hide and keep secrets.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

When you suffer Hell, use your own suffering at their hands as ammunition to lay up for later use against them; for remember that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction -- only in order to effect and realize this one must ever strive to occupy the moral high ground; ever strive to be just.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

But why isn't knowledge of the here and now moonshine also? After all, it's only a matter of time before the here and now becomes the before and earlier.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

If two individuals, groups or bodies are engaged in a form of strife where one side or more intentionally seeks to undermine or do injury to the other's basic human rights and there is not a majority or overriding consensus in the community to prevent this from going on further, society as such, including government, no longer exists (or else hasn't much longer to live.)

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

And so at last, and as is no doubt the case with not a few others, after so many years had gone by I found to my great surprise, and despite earlier hopes and bright prospects, that my life had to a significant extent ended up being an acutely painful and horrible experience. But this, of course, is and never was the fault of life. Rather, the blame lies with the predominance of the ghoulish religion and which it is every living person's duty to combat and root out -- not appease and accommodate.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

For the benefit of those who might be made subject to such a dizzying and fearful spasm -- not less than a half hour of penning the item below that he hit me with what was tantamount to a lightning bolt/stun gun -- naturally, for my perceived impertinence. What you do when such happens is not so much go to your thoughts to find strength but think of or look to your spirit and your heart, and say "Yes, indeed, thanks be to God!" and then to the attacker "pray for peace? Why, I'm all for it (yes, you indeed pray for peace too as shall I.)" And with that, along with reminding myself it was really just him using violence as usual; I succeeded in calming my spirit.

RE: He Who GETS to be Interesting TOO

While you might think me a hypochondriac for belaboring the point, the plain fact is I have and continued to be physically harassed and tortured by these people on an ongoing basis -- and try as I may I am ever interested in finding a means of ending this situation, preferably without any bother or fuss. Indeed, if I had my way these people would simply just go away and I would more than settle for that. Not only do I not need to cash on all this, I in fact just as soon not do so; lest it be inferred that my desire to rid myself of these people permanently was in the least less than absolutely pure.

Aside from their hurting those poor animals I tried to take care of, the thing that most infuriates me about these spirit people is the argument they use that they represent heaven and that this heaven excuses and will compensate for any damages they do. Now before I speak further I need to emphatically emphasize that when I make the following criticisms, I do not in the least mean to disparage or condemn the many goddesses, saints, angels, poorer devils, nymphs, elves, pixies, goon sprites, the ghost of Borley Rectory, etc. who are only captive, slave and zombie people who don't really have a whole lot of say, but who are sometime used as bit players. Were these types with someone else and somewhere else, I'm sure most any given one could turn out as a million bucks with the right and patient rehabilitation. They are not then whom I am referring when I speak of this alleged heaven as a filthy curse and horror. Rather, I speak with respect to the king or lord of this heaven and his immediate lieutenants. This is important, again, you see because this heaven is what is fraudulently used to, in effect, pay for and buy the evil such as the ghoulish magician and Speelburg (or Bruckhymer, Oafmore, etc.) do and perpetrate. So that somewhere along the way they are supposed to be helping people.

This last, needless to add, I utterly reject, and rather I accuse the head of this alleged heaven as being nothing more than a prehistoric panhandler who has been using such false pretense to leech on (as in mooch or welch; though leech is the better word) such as myself and others. This is no funny joke or satire on my part, but I mean it. Number one I reject now and forever his heaven as he and or his immediate lieutenants are present or directly involved with it as constituting nothing short of a nasty disease, and see it as the curse and horror or known existence (speaking this as my mere opinion of course; since I don't pretend to be their judge.) And if all this isn't quite true, then let's see this heavenly lord make good without bumming off of me. Let's see him get off his urine stained couch and stand on his own two feet without leaning on me -- i.e. by calling off his dog the magician and his other thugalings. I defy and challenge him to do it, and, in doing so, prove to myself and everyone else who is interested in the matter who and what he actually is. Let's see him do it!

"But Sherman, you know me; you know I'm good. Just give me a little more time. I'll come up with it and more. Things are looking really good right now and..."

You said that last year.

"I know, I did, I know; it's just that..."

You bum. Just get a move on and out of my life. I'll settle for that. You don't owe me anything. But God have mercy on you for what you did to those poor kids and similar.

[Though I know he is too busy to read such things; would someone in a position to please do me the kindness of at least telegraphing those very last lines of mine to him?]

Two words of explanation

Why aren't their more television comedy shows among my recommendations?

Because pretty much most all of the best comedy shows there ever were -- such as 60's and 70's family comedy shows like "Leave it to Beaver," "F-Troop" or "Gilligan's Island" etc., etc., or Paul Henning's and Norman Lear respective series-es to give some examples -- usually do or have gotten good air play on television stations across the country and around the world compared to drama shows, generally speaking, and therefore I deem them too well-known for anyone to need being introduced or re-introduced to them. And it is hard to imagine this being much changed with time's passage. Yet as stated before with respect to the Carol Burnett show, perhaps years from now if I am still around doing this I might feel differently.

How technologically are brain torture radios supposed to work?

Although I have way back among my earlier "Oracles" in an item entitled the "Transmutation of Form" suggested how radio waves can be superimposed on brain waves, I otherwise can't say I exactly know. Yet I can tell you that the magician one time related to me that in my case it was done by having tiny, tiny sprites place micro-conductors the size of grains of rice in my head. More than this I otherwise couldn't quite tell you.

He no longer inhabits the world, except to visit, and instead lives in his soul, seeking, by means of self-discipline, charity, prayers, and peace, to make that a more comfortable place to live.

"Oh, go mind your own business, why don't you? [sigh] Oh, you don't understand. No you don't! No you don't!"

"Do you mean to suggest that this person of geo-global importance was made to feel like some nobody who had nothing to live for? No, freakin' way! Who on earth could have astonishing and astounding powers of this kind to accomplish such a thing?"

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

"This person will clearly never get to be a glamorous movie star; and this I suppose is your Gods idea of justice." (Yes, this is actually how stupid some of these people are.)

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

Although they can be extremely knowledgeable in certain areas, as well as highly skilled at certain tasks, there are no classicists among arrogant spirit people, only rank barbarians.

As a rule when dealing with such understand that they are total shysters and hypocrites; and, as we have before pointed out, they like to have the privilege of both operating and dictating (to regular people) in this, our, sphere of things, yet they will not come out in the open either to clearly identify themselves or take responsibility for what they are doing. Do not hesitate then, if you have the logical and moral high ground, to dictate to them; nor let them put on supercilious airs or be dogmatically presuming with you. (To give one illustration, I might respond to their harassing by saying something like "By the very powers of Chandu, get your own life together already and go mind your own business" or "By the powers of Chandu, I command you to mind your own business -- those are the rules [that is all.]") Treat them, for all their amazing powers, wonders, coincidences, predictions, deja vu, etc, powers, just as you would anyone else who would bully and push people around. By the same token if they are right on a given point, concede that and be fair to them. But under no circumstances let them take it for granted that because they are spirit people they are necessarily superior or have more rights or say than you or anyone else does -- per se. Needless to say, this does not mean they will listen, or that they cannot force their way on you, yet even so such use of brute force (just as with anyone else) does and cannot of itself, of course, necessarily imply they are right or justified in acting or commanding as they do. True, they themselves and many, many others will act as if they are and must be at the center of cosmic and religious world events; but if they are viewed this way it is only because people in their unthinking and manipulated ignorance permit this, and so end up believing a lot of their self-serving propaganda and foolishness, and it goes without saying this is, to say the least, a far cry from being the necessary state of things.

* Don't neglect or forget to have handy your universal li principle, btw, when resorting to such invocations (sort of like Kato accompanying or teamed with the Green Hornet.)

Now For Something Completely Different

I found out about this from one of my favorite YouTube viewer websites (which latter I will possibly also introduce here some other occasion), but to be brief, avoid platitudes and suffice to say this person you can watch via the YouTube link below is a very amusing and talented fellow -- and I was not a little surprised to see something like this going on these days (groan) -- in fact, I must admit I am encouraged and inspired by him myself. Note, this is only one of a number of videos of this performer, and if this one starts your interest, it is worth your while to check out the others with him (and Alice) in them as well (see the YouTube side menu.)

To the crowd he bows, his peers;
Then comes his keeper
To take him home
Amidst the applause and cheers.

"Your promises give me great pleasure; and your performance of them, which I rely upon, will give me still greater. I am sure you know that breaking of your word is a folly, a dishonour, and a crime. It is a folly, because nobody will trust you afterwards and it is both a dishonour and a crime, truth being the first duty of religion and morality: and whoever has not truth, cannot be supposed to have any one good quality, and must become the detestation of God and man. Therefore I expect, from your truth and your honour, that you will do that, which, independently of your promise, your own interest and ambition ought to incline you to do: that is, to excel in everything you undertake."
~ Lord Chesterfield (1694-1773), 28 June 1742, to his son.

Banker! Bankers! Bankers (or else oil company executives) are to blame (so they say.) When will they ever have the courage to criticize, let alone indict, those running the (very uncompetitive) mass media? They won't do it; because that's where Satan really lives. (Observe in passing also how it was the Ministry of Propaganda which took over the home computer industry -- so that the latter now is but a faint shadow of the creative and innovative force it once was originally -- and instead full of bugs, viruses, and spoof advertising.)

He can eat that rich food on us that's true, but God knows, just as we do, that he'll only make himself that much more fat doing so -- this, when he's already obese enough as it is. So you see he does end up paying a very real and measurable price for being able to glut and satisfy his appetite and ambition more or less when and as he pleases.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

What does a "Copernican Revolution," such as we propose at this website, in practical terms mean? It means that instead of being relegated to addressing the symptoms and secondary and tertiary causes of serious problems we now have the opportunity to confront them at their source. For example, the need for more and better government provided health care frequently comes up. Yet if it could be established that criminal spirit people are instrumental in and for the devising and spreading of serious diseases, and that such spirit persons could be attacked and eradicated, then what we might discover is that the need for doctors' care was much less needed than many have hitherto believed.

The same is true of military and diplomatic matters, crime and law enforcement, religious strife and misunderstanding, and environmental, education, and economic concerns. By the same token and as it stands, consider how much time, energy, funds and resources -- not to mention lives -- end up being wasted and squandered by limiting cures and would-be cures to the focus on mere symptoms and secondary causes, and which well meaning but misguided efforts as often as not are either mostly useless or else only contribute to exacerbating the situation, and or else create or make worse other problems.

As we have pointed out before, when people listen to spirit people as guides and advisers what ends up happening is that they proceed to abandon honest reason and basic morals, while fostering secrecy and proscribing discussion. This of itself, were spirit people responsible for nothing else, undermines and debilitates individuals' and society's capacity to intelligently get at and solve problems, and very pointedly illustrates the very tragic implications of denying or turning a blind eye to the presence and impact of such "other worldly" criminals and their hench-persons in our midst.

Here's an somewhat unusual item picked up from one of the music lists I'm subscribed to, actor Tab Hunter singing "And so to Sleep Again" (.mp3 zipped at 2.6 MBs)

Brain torture radios, willful physical mutilation of another, serial rapes and killings, poisoning people and animals, systematic torture and abuse and more and similar. Granted nobody's perfect, yet what will he tell the judge was his reason and excuse for doing such things as this? What's more, it is one thing for someone to claim that they were coerced against their will into doing something wrong, yet who forces someone to be a millionaire?

But he says this life will end and then all these troubles will disappear. Tell that to those filthy ghost sorcerers, ghost vampires, goon sprites, and other miserable and tormented beings whom we�ve seen and met first hand from beyond the spirit realm.

Is life at its root a war for selfish survival (the Orkonic perspective) or a partnership for mutual survival and happiness (the view of the Bearstone tribe?) From this question springs all the foremost issues and concerns of a serious or dire cast that beset us. The two motives it suggests, furthermore, are the basis for the essential distinction between good and evil -- even though some do and will continue to pretend or foolishly believe there is a third way -- but of course the practical truth is this supposed third alternative is really only the first mentioned way concealed and disguised.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

If Moses pretended to be God it was in order to counter the devil's doing so, and because it was the only way to get his people to listen to him. Yet this is not to say he was not of God; for of course he truly was, and allowing for the times in which he lived, in speaking from God's heart and spirit within him.

~~~~~~*~~~~~~

It is true, there most certainly is a fair amount of nonsense originating with spirit people in the Bible; and even such as St. Paul, who often speaks such wonderful wisdom, shows that he was, on other occasions, not above being under the influence -- even to the extent, at times (see letters to the Corinthians, for instance), of rejecting Christ's teachings on forbearance, forgiveness, and false religious pride; or such as in the apostle�s acknowledging Satan's purported right to punish and torment people. But the fault is not with religious faith, the Bible, or Paul so much as it is the inability or refusal to treat spirit people rationally and objectively -- which even now of course, let alone way back then and earlier, is not the easiest thing in the world to do.

Note. In fairness to Paul, he might, in retrospect and for all we know, fault those who edited his writings (say, in placing what he wrote outside of its original and intended context) than what he said necessarily.
