As we often discover, life progresses through seasons of natural change and vibrant themes that bind truth to beauty. As we develop consistent methods that work and build personal capacity for love and the knack for trusting intelligence itself within ourselves and learn to recognize similar capacities in our peers, steady moments of inspiration show us glimpses of genuine glory.
Our ways are tempered magically and miraculously to experience gained by suffering and hardship which, as the ancient texts have passed along to us, build lasting relationships from personal and intimate to casual and remote and the character to maintain them over long timeframes. Our transpersonal psychological and philisophical ways and means (this blog post in evidence) provide us a space within which we each get to accomplish our dream and tell our collective story.
The glory we know shows up as light of various kinds that illuminate those things that hide from us – whether things we need for work or things that would harm us or impede the work if they remained in our space. The gift of discernment endowed by nature herself enables us to sort the useful and beautiful from the vile and gory.
People who lack the training and discipline afforded to the children of light – every now and then – disrupt the processes and patterns of liberation given freely to the contacted. Disciples of perfection work out their own salvation through the works of faith that are written in our code since we first entered the sentient being category.
If one knows in one’s heart the meaning of life and embraces the clarifications and corrections offered in the syllabus, labs and coursework of the ever present all-knowing might of the resident extraterrestrial professing redeemer, the learning and teaching crafts carry forward into the next season of vital work retaining the revised record into the realms of the anticipatory …
Our purpose in life justifies our remaining in this world to the end. Decisions and choices matter only as entertainment for the distracted, delusion for the unfaithful and unfounded fear for the disbelieving. Those of us called into service for the reorganization of humanity reconcile actionable faith and instructive source through walking out on ignorance and deception and stepping onto the path of righteousness ever how lonsome. We simply interpret and activate what we gather from the prime master’s allegory:
The Seed sown in the good soil bears fruit a hundred-fold with each and every planting/harvest cycle – you shall know them by their fruits. Understand your calling so you will assure your election as a gifted child with helpful creative offerings in the grand repository.
Growing up during the Cold War in Kentucky gave my world-view a little less than complete treatment as to who I would become, what I would do for a living and how my relationships would later serve mainly to break my heart and hang me out to dry. In spite of all that, I managed to survive to my current age of 61 and am determined not to let the remainder of my life on Earth get dominated by the Evil One. I have wasted plenty of breath trying to convince certain close relatives and distant friends that something positive is going on in the world, completely separate and apart from what is reported on TV News programs. (There’s a reason they are called ‘programs’ by the way.)
Recently, I was introduced to an awesome term which to me represents that “lost chord” that The Moody Blues sent me in search of about four decades ago. If you’ve been following me along in my various web-spaces and spheres of influence (and confluence), you’ll “get”, as I have, the full scope of what this little term ‘syzygy‘ means in all of its glory as a generalized principle much akin to the meta-term SYNERGY of the 20th Century, which I learned of through reading books by R. Buckminster Fuller. Just have a look:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a syzygy (from Greek συζυγία ‘pair’) is a relation between the generators of a module M. The set of all such relations is called the “first syzygy module of M“. A relation between generators of the first syzygy module is called a “second syzygy” of M, and the set of all such relations is called the “second syzygy module of M“. Continuing in this way, we derive the nth syzygy module of M by taking the set of all relations between generators of the (n − 1)th syzygy module of M. If M is finitely generated over a polynomial ring over a field, this process terminates after a finite number of steps; i.e., eventually there will be no more syzygies (see Hilbert’s syzygy theorem). The syzygy modules of M are not unique, for they depend on the choice of generators at each step.
The sequence of the successive syzygy modules of a module M is the sequence of the successive images (or kernels) in a free resolution of this module.
Buchberger’s algorithm for computing Gröbner bases allows the computation of the first syzygy module: The reduction to zero of the S-polynomial of a pair of polynomials in a Gröbner basis provides a syzygy, and these syzygies generate the first module of syzygies.

Notice the article remains a “stub” class article. I’ve been a Wikipedia contributor and am actually one of the first “custodians” on Wikiversity – a sisterproject from the Wikimedia Foundation the stewardship group that maintains Wikipedia, Wictionary, Wikibooks, Wikiversity and other “sisterprojects” across many languages and contexts. All of this coordinated effort impressed me early on as far back as 2005, when I first registered an account at “meta” – the multi-lingual portal for all the Wikimedia Foundation’s projects.
The reason I’m telling you all this is to announce a long-term dream of mine to get my music “out there” without prostituting myself to the commercial media world and making some undeserving nitwit rich with my not-so-ordinary musical prowess. The missing link is not simply the interface but the infrastructure and licensing schema that will allow my debut without taking my soul to a bad place.The other reason is because of the complexity involved in get Wikipedians, Wikiversitans and other Wikians working together as a qualified whole. The SYZYGY17 Project may do the trick. We shall see.
My new Web Radio Program which I hope to launch into the testing phase this May is called “Across the Wikiverse“ and is inspired by the Lennon-McCartney song Across the Universe which I thought more than adequate to cover my eclectic set of interests. I decided to go ahead and enter the SYZYGY17 project into the Wikiversity STREAM education series as an extension of a suspended project that never got to blossom, thanks to my extended personal demise back in 2007 (continued from my first personal demise of September 2001 – The Day the Music Died… again). Please, Lord … no more personal demises. OK? amen.
The Common Good is always there waiting for some attention. It seems that attention is at a premium these days with the bombardment of our psyches with the steady stream of nonsense coming from the commercially prostituted media that has driven sanity to the margins of daily life. Who are we to withhold ourselves from the task of restoring Common Sense to our lives?
OzoneFarm is here to assist in the process of realization of the ideal for our own slice of the “masses” which is fairly small according to our year-end stats. But our aim is more toward quality rather than quantity. The ideal that we look to is not of this current world. It comes from a future world that can only be imagined and scarcely even described. All we know for sure is that justice and love will be the dominant themes.
Building real community requires openness, honesty and oneness of both heart and mind. The confusing forces that plague civic life and the overall well-being planet-wide appear to have a common source – an inordinate desire for material gain on the part of an ever-thinner slice of Humanity. Our philosophy is based in the belief that Community is Capital. To us, wealth consists of physical well-being, spiritual liberation and collective cognition of Earth’s ecosystem. It has nothing to do with finance, commerce or even government.
The battle lines are drawn along physical boundaries using ideals that are functions of collective acceptance of a few principles that empower mainly those who have material advantage through the usurpation of civil authority. This condition creates wide-spread misery and despair and results in crime and misbehavior on every level. Every problem ranging from irreparable damage to the ecosystem to mass starvation of innocent children is solvable through a return of the uniquely Human faculty of critical thinking and problem-solving that has delivered us through two World Wars and into a third. This war, though, is one of mind and spirit..
In 2016, we hope to show what can be achieved through tightly-focused community development and cyber-active vocational rehabilitation of our systems and networks. We are ramping up our efforts to build brick-and-mortar instances of maker spaces, rebuild centers, B corporations, permaculture projects, local food networks and other down-to-earth efforts to change things at the local level. At the same time, we are working on forming a collectively-rendered prototype of a new system of accountability and communication based, not upon greed but upon the κοινωνία principle.
I stopped owning a car in 2003. Do the math. I’m just fine having adapted to a whole new life on foot. Walking is so efficient, one is astounded at how the whole world changes from the perspective of a free, liberated Human being walking, talking and living above ground breathing real air. Once you also remove the screen and look into the three-dimensional continuum before your eyes and open your ears to the mockingbird and the sparrows, perhaps you, too will become part of the eternal song. Inside each and every one of us, there is a connection to the eternal divine nature. To regain access to this treasure, we must divest from petroleum’s stranglehold on our collective psyche.
As a species, we have amazing powers especially when we come together. Where I am, there is a Riverside where we shall all gather by and by to share this new way to approach life. When we walk, we assert our own terms and affirm our sovereignty. Once we step out of the car, we can interact with each other without the limitations and restrictions imposed by the absurdity of burning fossils and serving large metallic jails that box us in and separate us from our Creator. When we stop paying attention to corporate propaganda, we regain control of our own lives and become capable again of original thought. When we meet face to face, we will begin to see eye to eye and these wars could eventually end. Who knew?
Liberation begins at the feet and ends in the mind. Those in “power” use mass media to coerce us into doing everything on their terms. They flaunt their presumptuous wealth and material power to subjugate us to their technology and their system of “supply and demand” which makes no real sense. They pit us against each other and cause us to live in fear, suspicion, ignorance and doubt. That’s how they get their power and profit from the complacency of the unwary. Through their contrivances, the whole world is under a “spell” to keep feeding the Beast. The dependence upon cars and televisions is all in the mind. We don’t need either one. We need each other!
As the song says, “We are spirits in the material world” and it’s pretty silly to put ourselves into a system that removes our liberty and sovereignty by creating artificial scarcity and hyper-dependence upon fossil-based lifestyles. With some help from above, I was freed from their trap. Find your feet and you too will be liberated. Find a friend in Jesus and walk as He walked. Wake up to walking, Brothers and Sisters! Meet me down by the riverside.
Before Europeans, The Mississippi Basin was home to hundreds of tribes of stone age people living in relative harmony with the land and each other. With no concept of ownership, no idea about property rights, no notion of state, no high-tech agriculture, no aerial photography…
…they understood the importance of stream confluences on a spiritual level. Continue reading
From my friend’s blog:
“There is no hierarchy of people!”
She was talking about her doctor, an oncologist describing how cool it would be if she and her husband could just have him and his wife as regular friends without the doctor-patient relationship overriding the personal one. Caroline is as much of a “regular” gal as any, and having followed her honest simple writing style for a good while, I have easily concluded that if I were to meet her in “real life” she would be a total delight. Her writing is candid, complete and very well composed. Don’t take my word for it. Just click and see the whole context of her heart, mind and soul that she pours into the stream each time she posts. The point, though:
“…there is something even more important than the here and now! Something far greater than community! There are friends. Higher, in another circle is family, and in another greater realm is the body of Christ!”
Now what is she talking about? What can be greater than the principle building block of civilization itself, community? We all know what a circle of friends is, but what is this “realm” of which she brings up here and in other posts? To answer these questions, we’ll have to turn to a very controversial book, the New Testament.
There… That should filter out about 40% of the Internet… <to be continued…>
