The Pale Blue Dot is so small it encompasses a universe of multiple universes, Conservation of Complexity

When you look out into the night sky and marvel at the stars, do not feel as though you are insignificant, instead, consider that you are actually looking at yourself from the outside in.
Today, as I begin the new year, I have great troubles with Carl Sagan's pale blue dot. It is a perspective in contradiction to the new paradigm of consciousness, it clings to materialist / determinist ideas; we are not small and insignificant as we are asked to reference our size in relation to the cosmos and also to suggest that our problems are unimportant by mere contrast and comparisons of size alone. In fact, the whole notion of scale and size is engrained in our belief systems with self denigrating perspectives such as these. I ask you all to consider letting go these old notions and consider instead that our life form is as complex and as vast as the entire observable universe; there is a conservation of complexity at every conceivable scale where bigger does not mean better and smaller does not mean insignificant. Remove the old notions and consider that the entire universe and our bodies are on an equal footing. For example, the neuron connections in our brain are more numerous than all the galaxies we can count. I propose the complete opposite of the blue dot paradigm; each one of us is an entire universe construct rendered in a self referring space-time paradox. As there are billions of us so are there multiple parallel, overlapping universe constructs. If I were in the next galaxy measuring human particles as sub components of the earth particle, I would not be able to distinguish you from I just as if I were to look at an atom I cannot distinguish one electron from the other.

All life is significant, all life is as vast and expansive as the entire universe, do not be lured into a lower self worth valuation of an insignificant pale blue dot, you are as majestic as all creation is.

Energy from nothing, and Nothing for energy


In my view, energy security in the future is D.I.Y. and OPEN SOURCE technology; it is about providing for one's own needs and showing others how to do the same without asking anything in return or taxing future generations' ability to survive in doing so. In the future, collecting energy for our own needs will be exactly like gardening for our own food. It will be earth friendly and you will really feel and be secure without having to pay any tolls or taxes. You will have a sense of accomplishment because you were able to generate your own power without harming anyone financially or threatening future generations' survival. Rain or shine you will have all the power you need and so will your great, great grand children.
The next time you see a pipeline add selling you energy security, keep in mind that this is the community who have also worked very hard to thwart the development of any technology that would eliminate or reduce our dependancy on oil and gas. Thwarting new technologies works on many scales but here in Canada we have technology devolution and economic bias down to a fine art form. During the last economic meltdown, industries related to oil and gas were aided by the government using our tax dollars, others, mostly in manufacturing of other unrelated goods, were left to fend on their own and many failed to make it through. In this way, economic meltdowns and strengthening our dollar are good economic mechanisms to reduce the diversity of economic activity that isn't to do with raw material exports. This is an effective way to remove the "competition" from the playing field and ensure that our country's strengths are focused on producing raw materials. To ensure that the path is clear for unfettered development there is also muzzling public scientists, removing environmental protection, defunding public broadcasting that is critical, advocacy chill through tax audit threats, secretive trade deals. It is very clear that we will push oil and gas through pipelines and burn it off regardless of the cost.
The government 's vision is to survive from the taxes generated by selling off our raw resources to foreign countries and then collecting from you and I after we buy back and consume the finished products. The lack of economic diversity and capability here at home ensures that there are fewer alternative ways to fund our public commons, we will have to capitulate in many ways to the dumbing down of our nation and exporting raw resources if we are to fund social security because we lack economic diversity. Energy security under the current leadership is about the survival and security of a the very few in the oil and gas industry at the expense of the public taxpayer, at the expense of other industries, and at the expense of the ability of future generations to survive.

The birth of a new blog for NOTHING

As a great admirer of all things open and free, like UNIX for example, I feel there is a great potential for the role of NOTHING in our future.  When we create an open source piece of work, we really expect nothing although it would be nice, as was with LINUX, that it becomes a ubiquitous nothing.  LINUX was so much a nothing that Apple adopted it into their own OSX and created a gigantic thing that no one could have but them.  They took the nothing and made it something only they could have, they gave us nothing in return.  The strange reality is that our entire bodies and beings are 99.9999999...% empty space, our everything is nothing.  This is a good model of our communication with one another; 99.99999...% of our effort to communicate is empty space.

I thought I would connect a concept of UNIX with sharing empty space of words for nothing.  In UNIX, there is a special device called /DEV/NULL .  IT has a very amazing ability!  If you want to move information to a gigantic void of nothing you can copy or move your files of information to /dev/null.  Similarly if you want nothing you can copy the contents of /dev/null to your file or other device, it will gladly give you nothing!  This particular nothing is so popular that I am unable to find a devnull blog title and so I called this spinfreejournal.

I suppose that I don't trust Facebook any more to share my sweet nothings. My words are wasted there unless I pay them SOMETHING.  They put people's posts to /dev/null unless they can gain SOMETHING.  The truth is that within NOTHING is EVERYTHING.  My rantings and ravings that you may or may not read are in fact nothing, but it is my way to connect with the great void that is in fact everything.  The words I write do linger within my own sub conscious, my own nothingness.  Sometimes however, the words are highlighted by some happening or situation.  I hope that if you follow, it may provide you with a way to extract everything from nothing
