"Mail a Smile"
Having been put through literally thousands of "dream productions," either done by the magician or his "sorcerer's apprentice," I've come to the conclusion that the subconscious is essentially and nothing more than much the equivalent of the cognitive mind running on low batteries; making allowance for "heart" or emotional consciousness also to some degree present but that is and can be aroused differently and with much, much greater difficulty. What dream productions are, in effect, are a kind of hypnotism carried out on you in your sleeping state; so that your subconscious lacking sufficient waking energy cannot think properly. In them you are an observer, sometimes someone who reacts, but who also guided or in effect "told," by some subliminal method used, what to think and feel. Sometimes you think or feel what you are told, but depending on the kind of person you are, not always. In my case, they can sometimes impel me to a feeling or belief, but as or more often not, my response is one of "I don't know what you are talking about." Or similarly, they try getting me to act or feel a certain way, and when I do not, they find themselves having to change scenes; since a dream production is virtual reality that is much like a movie, but in which you participate. Someone of these are intended be satanic and terrifying in the extreme; with extremely violent, obscene, and sadistic situations created for one to go through.
It further comes as small wonder or surprise then that such current day masters of mind control, as they themselves have many times freely admitted to me, should have ties with film making, television, and that world of make believe; and which is confirmed as well by the film industry's affectionate and overt devotion to subjects like sorcery and the occult; and by which and related means all competition can be completely snuffed out and obliterated; hence the egregiously monopolistic character of big budget movies and decrepitly sordid television in recent decades.

["Johnny Cash sings The Battle Hymn Of The Republic"]
Earlier today I came across the Library of Congress (Online) Digital Collection at http://www.loc.gov/library/libarch-digital.html, and that, as you would surmise, contains an immense catalog of archive material in digital form; such as newspapers, documents, maps, photographs, sound recordings and more. Among the sound recordings, there is "The National Jukebox" which "features over 10,000 78rpm disc sides issued by the Victor, 1900-25." Here are two items from the same:
"The Battle Hymn of the Republic" sung by Reinald Werrenrath
Recording Date: 1917-07-12
"The Gettysburg Address" read by Len Spencer
Recording date: 1903-03-21
"WARNING: These historical recordings may contain offensive or inappropriate language."
["Dean Martin-Arrivederci Roma"]
A: I was curious. Among all the many wrong things you've done, did you or your people ever steal a broom?
B: A regular broom or a witch's broom?
A: A regular broom.
B: I'd have to go and look that one up. But probably not since medieval times, as there's not much value in one and usually they can be replaced pretty easily.
Of course, indeed it goes without saying, his people are embarrassed and ashamed of him (their master); while, after twenty years, they still can't come up with someone man enough to proudly face me on his behalf. (And if there is a man among them, who is he? Where is he? Do they get around this perplexity by reasoning that their "man" is masked and therefore concealed like a Marvel super hero?) But then, and on the other hand, there's more than enough money, riches, and privileges to console and comfort themselves with under the circumstances.
Excerpts from Augustine's epistles continued.
3. The law, therefore, by teaching and commanding what cannot be fulfilled without grace, demonstrates to man his weakness, in order that the weakness thus proved may resort to the Saviour, by whose healing the will may be able to do what in its feebleness it found impossible. So, then, the law brings us to faith, faith obtains the Spirit in fuller measure, the Spirit sheds love abroad in us, and love fulfils the law. For this reason the law is called a "schoolmaster," under whose threatenings and severity "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered." But how shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed?" Wherefore unto them that believe and call on Him the quickening Spirit is given, lest the letter without the Spirit should kill them. But by the Holy Ghost, which is given unto us, the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts? So that the words of the same apostle, "Love is the fulfilling of the law," are realized. So the law is good to the man who uses it lawfully; and he uses it lawfully who, understanding wherefore it was given, betakes himself, under the pressure of its threatenings, to grace, which sets him free. Whoever unthankfully despises this grace, by which the ungodly are justified, and trusts in his own strength, as if he thereby could fulfil the law, being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish his own righteousness, is not submitting himself to the righteousness of God; and thus the law becomes to him not a help to pardon, but the bond fastening his guilt to him. Not that the law is evil, but because sin works death in such persons by that which is good. For by occasion of the commandment he sins more grievously who, by the commandment, knows how evil are the sins which he commits.
5. Moreover, every one hates sin just in proportion as he loves righteousness; which he will be enabled to do not through the law putting him in fear by the letter of its prohibitions, but by the Spirit healing him by grace. Then that is done which the apostle enjoins in the admonition, "I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity, even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness."...surely more devoted service is due to righteousness than men are wont to yield to sin. For pain of body restrains men, if not from the desire of sin, at least from the commission of sinful actions; and we should not easily find any one who would openly commit a sin procuring to him an impure and unlawful gratification, if it was certain that the penalty of torture would immediately follow the crime. But righteousness ought to be so loved that not even bodily sufferings should hinder us from doing its works, but that, even when we are in the hands of cruel enemies, our good works should so shine before men that those who are capable of taking pleasure therein may glorify our Father who is in heaven.
6. Hence it comes that that most devoted lover of righteousness exclaims," Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (As it is written, For Your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Observe how he does not say simply, "Who shall separate us from Christ?" but, indicating that by which we cling to Christ, he says, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?" We cling to Christ, then, by love, not by fear of punishment. Again, after having enumerated those things which seem to be sufficiently fierce, but have not sufficient force to effect a separation, he has, in the conclusion, called that the love of God which he had previously spoken of as the love of Christ. And what is this "love of Christ" but love of righteousness?...
