I've been a movie projectionist, dogsled driver, often a house painter, and my favorite job of all, an apple picker in 1970-'71 on Arthur Harvey's crews. He later on, saved the meaning of the word, Organic. see:Harvey Decision 2005. I started a small mfg. business in '78, that worked out well enough to raise a family, am still at it. Don't know better.
That my wonderful America, spends more on it's Military Machine, than all the other countries combined, is point number #1 when trying to figure it all out. Follow the money is a good plan. We've gone off the rails obviously.
I'm a Felon from resisting the draft in 1966. My deepest compassion goes out to all Veterans. Together, we'll find healing and peace.
I dig hard science, technology and precision machining way more than gushy stuff.
But my Cosmic Egg Cracked when some common Ants talked back to me, about twenty (five) years ago. Ants had been a summer time issue in our kitchen many years. I've had way more than enough pesticide exposure.
So, I'm reading Wilson on ant pheromones and hatch a crude plan. Their deal with Gaia is obvious, to clean the world totally. I must offer something in trade i.e. protection, to get what I want. I begin sweeping them up 3 times a day, yes, it's cruel. Putting them outside, I'm saying loudly, ("Ants are nearly deaf." says Wilson), ..."Go home and tell your friends to stay out of the kitchen, that's all I ask. In return, you will have my protection, even from the kids." This went on for about a week, three times daily. I began to feel a wanting to negotiate and the terms. Was this my delusion or the Ants speaking? It took them 5 days patiently repeating, while I sweep for slow me to hear/see/feel and get it. (The 3 channel thing is what I look for now.)
They said,... "We will do what you ask (stay out of the kitchen)... and if it works out... you're promising to speak in our behalf, to other Human Beings, when appropriate." I signed up, it looked so easy just like that truck lease. Watch out for the small print, ...these dudes are sharp! This Ant Contract, has become increasingly fascinating, embarrassing, awesome and useful to me. It even works in Mexico. Nature wants to connect with us and can teach. Respect is, as far as I can tell, the only thing I absolutely must bring to the table. Ask and then listen, it may take a few days, It did for me the first time. Give it a try, three channels.
