Weird Universe: Are We Meant To Be Here? (Part 2)

PART 2 : We Are Meant To Be Here


In Part 1 of this essay (‘Weird Universe: Are We Meant To Be Here?”), I discussed the strange ideas of William Blake (1757-1827), England’s famous poet-painter and mystic. He had managed to combine his own wacky version of Christianity with an uninhibited tantric sexual mysticism that most of his contemporaries found ridiculous, if not repugnant, and which the subsequent age of Queen Victoria would regard with revulsion and horror.

Weird Universe: Are We Meant To Be Here? (Part 1)


An excursion into the visionary worlds of Blake, Swedenborg, and Leonardo da Vinci. None of these great thinkers would have had any problems believing in a postmortem existence, given that they regarded death as a “continuation of life”.   

“The universe is not only stranger than we imagine,
it is stranger than we can imagine.” — Sir Arthur Eddington [1]

PART 1 : Weird Universe

Strange. Weird. Uncanny. Three sensational synonyms to lure us into the bizarre mind worlds of William Blake, Emanuel Swedenborg, and Leonardo da Vinci. Perhaps they will help us to appreciate Hamlet’s observation to his friend Horatio that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in our philosophy [2]. Read More

Palestine Betrayed: Sold Down the River by Trump’s Iniquitous ‘Peace Plan’

Robert Fisk — ‘The Independent’
Sourced from Information Clearing House

Trump’s “deal of the century” is so absurd and banal that it’s impossible to take seriously, says Robert Fisk. 


TRUMP:  You will have what you want.
NETANYAHU:  Thanks, but what if I want more?
TRUMP:  Ask, and you will be given. There is no limit to my love!
“Trump has created a world in which the US president’s son-in-law
is more powerful than the UN General Assembly.”
— Gideon Levi, Haaretz
“Believe it Or Not: a US president gave a foreign power
the right to eternally occupy someone else’s land.”

Pedophile Planet : Organized Child Rape Comes to America

Boys and Girls Being Sold for Sex 20 Times a Day!

John W. Whitehead – The Rutherford Institute Jan 28, 2020

“Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”
—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

There can only be one winner emerging from this year’s Super Bowl LIV showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs, but the biggest losers will be the hundreds of young girls and boys—some as young as 9 years old—who will be bought and sold for sex during the course of the big game.

Stalin: Psychopathic Monster and Mass Murderer


This article, consisting entirely of quotes, is a response to an article we recently published by a writer known as ‘Lobro’.  His pro-Stalin article is entitled “Lobro: Why I Admire Stalin”.  Lobro’s article, together with all its mostly negative comments, can be read here in its entirety (JSM).  


Edited for brevity.
With a 1000-word addendum by Lasha Darkmoon
entitled “How Many Died Under Stalin?” 

According to one Stalin cultist, not a single soul was put to death under the direct orders of the greatest mass murderer of modern times. Darkmoon writers discuss this mind-boggling new claim in a heated debate.   

“Death is the solution to all problems. No man—no problem.”
— Josef Stalin Read More

Mother Country : A Poem by Christina Rossetti

LD: This is one of my favorite Christina Rossetti poems, less well known than it ought to be and seldom found in anthologies.  Its exquisite musicality is entirely dependent on rhyme and meter, since the same melodic effects cannot possibly be achieved by unrhymed “free verse”.

The poem’s burning sincerity, which is the hallmark of all Rossetti’s verse, has the indelible stamp of her character: that of an otherworldly mystic consumed by an abhorrence of everyday existence in this vale of tears, together with an insatiable longing for heaven and an after life in some Platonic realm beyond time. This is the lost paradise of her dreams, inklings of which are experienced on this earth only in childhood, if one is lucky enough to have a happy childhood.

Here, then, in this idealized Eden of childhood innocence, is the “Mother Country” which forms the subject matter of this extraordinary piece of mood music. This is genius of a high order, seldom reached by any other female poet in history. [LD] Read More
