Value systems are alternative facts

2 min read

Value systems do not exist. They exist in principle, and they exist on an individual level. This does not translate to labels for a value system. There is not a Democrat. There is not a Republican. There is not a Christian. There is not a Muslim. These are labels we made up, and they are demonstrably false. There are two individuals with different languages, customs, beliefs, and cultural upbringings.


What I'm trying to do here is to eliminate a method we use to identify ourselves and identify others. There are just people. People are inherently equal. All systems that do not support this fact must be eliminated. Identifying the other only hurts us and must be abandoned. The means we choose to believe a Republican is not different from a Democrat. There are two different individuals, just like any two other individuals are different from each other, just in different ways.


Science discovered this 30 years ago. The way in which I present this story may use more recent science. When you present a test subject person with images of two people and label one as having a similar value system and the other as having a different value system, the test subject prefers the person with a similar value system. Newer research shows that people do not prefer the image of the person who holds a similar values system more, they just prefer the person who holds a different value system less. A social psychology experiment I read for work started with this assumption when trying to identify an experimental method of inducing an intimate bond between two test subjects. They assumed value systems mattered. The results surprised them. People provided each other with as deep a connection and preferred each other as much after the study whether they were later told the person held the same value system or a different value system. Thus, it is scientifically determined that value systems do not exist. And combined with other research, it shows us that our belief that value systems exist only harms us.


Please abandon all use of such labels and have conversations. Thanks.

Why are clowns creepy?

3 min read

This is a Judeo-Christian view. Clowns are creepy because they mockingly point out the work of Satan that we did in our lives. Clowns have a long history of making fun. They used to serve to make fun of the aristocracy for poor decisions because outright criticism was not allowed. We lately had an outburst of clowns, and we don't appear to know the reason. People were scared. People wanted to hunt the clowns down.


I had a realization on the ride home that I would choose Satan over a motorcycle. This is because Satan is predictable. Satan is a trickster. The primary role is to trick you into actions that are not in your best interest. The way Satan works is to get you to pay attention to the wrong thing, then you get tricked into that action. The clown points out to us where we were tricked, and we are creeped out by a cosmic trick played on us and the regrettable actions which follow.


The following is the unity of the evolutionary biology and Judeo-Christian perspectives. Satan was originally represented as a serpent. Humans are inherently scared of snakes more than biologically warranted. We sometimes demonize snakes, and growing up in the South, if you saw a snake, you killed it. The snake is a reptile. It has only a reptilian brain. Reptiles used to rule the Earth. Then God saw that the creation was not in his likeness and displaced them as the rulers through an asteroid. The punctuation in the equilibrium of evolution rates that followed led to the development of the mammalian brain. It exists on top of our reptilian brain. This time evolution led us to be the dominant species on the planet. We are told in our tradition that we are made in God's likeness. When we listen to the snake and are tricked, we do not act in the way God wants us to act. This is what caused the agricultural revolution and the exploitation of animals. And the clown mocks us. 


It is time that we live our calling to be like God on Earth. We are to rule Earth and have dominion over it. This means that we are to control the evolution of life on Earth through the force of life, which is human labor along with maybe some treats for the creatures. God created paradise on Earth in the tropics through using the force of death. It is time for us to use our ability to construct and to model the results of our actions and predict the results of future ones to make the rest of Earth tropical. 


I'm starting with the Southeast US. Here over the next 30 or more years, we will see the influx of over 100 million people as Florida and major eastern seaboard cities are submerged. We need the infrastructure in place to harvest and store enough water to make our area tropical or semi-tropical. We can modify the ground here to grow crops year round with no energy invested. We create this and put those 100+ million people to work growing crops. We export these crops everywhere. We will probably grow enough for the entire world. We freely offer everyone the fruit of the resources we have been entrusted. We distribute that fairly so that all the world may actually experience the equal opportunity to freedom that we have.

What Is Feminism?

7 min read

I had some conception of feminism for much of my life, and it was probably something I supported. For the first 30 years of my life, I never ran into anything like this. This year I found that there are women who embody feminism that is mean and derisive towards men. My story needs to be shared, because if men know that the women protesting are going to treat them like this, no one is going to concede to giving up any power or privilege he may have over women. Why would someone consciously do something that he knows will lead to people who will treat him like shit having potentially more power over him than they did? If you want feminism to be about equality, read on. I have advice.


This is a social media interaction. The post is a screenshot of a woman posting "Dr wouldn't tie my tubes cuz I wasn't married and maybe someday my husband might want kids. Medically, my body belongs to a man I haven't met." The first female poster responds "But most doctors have no problem with performing a vasectomy on an unmarried man." I post "This is entirely individual specific. Just see another doctor, and your results are going to change. I could have found doctors who wouldn't perform my vasectomy. So what did I do instead? I went to a urologist who said he did not like performing vasectomy in such a situation, but I'm a grown up. It's not the case that doctors don't exist who will treat women as grown ups." Is this somehow an unfair statement to say that women's healthcare is similar to men's, that you may run into individual doctors who will not perform the procedure? If you live in an area with options, you may go see another doctor.


I am told "You may want to take your man card and walk away from this issue," which means "that since you're not a woman, you might not want to pretend your experience is relevant." I point out this was after a woman before me posting about vasectomy, which she has no experience about, followed by you saying nothing. What follows isn't a fitting response or an additional comment to the original woman's post. It's a post by a female doctor of a famous black man who is captioned as "Stares muthafukily" at me. The lady who had nothing to say in response to the vasectomy posts with a heart by the doctor's name. I say "So I try to bring sexual equality to the comments section and all I get is women high-fiving each other over staring muthafukily at me?" How is this not complete cyber bullying? Why would you allow this to be part of your movement?


The doctor posts "I am a doctor. As such, I advise you to stop talking about those things of which you have no knowledge. Take two and call me in the morning," and she later advises me that it is not her responsibility to inform me. So you want to deride someone, but you don't want to educate him? You want to willfully go forward having an uneducated populace? Willful ignorance? Really?


I made another post and mention how I would like to be able to perform vasectomy on other species. In response, I get made fun of, by a medical doctor, for exhibiting a symptom of mental illness. I have that mental illness. Does this mean that the doctor is making fun of me for having mental illness? How appropriate is that? How much does that resemble Donald Trump making fun of a disabled reporter?


I make a post in response to a newly involved woman that includes "Male neutering is castration. IMO not that neat... I know men who never got their pets neutered due to the fact that it's not nice to cut a man's balls off. I have no idea how frequently the service vasectomy is offered with vets. Many farmers cut the young goats' scrotum off by administering a rubber band which restricts blood flow."


So I get a mean and useless response of "please. Don't. My female vet friends outnumber my male vet friends considerably. I'll save you the time. Good thing you seem to not want to plague the rest of us with your spawn, but probably get a professional to snip you off, Mmmm kay?" My response is "My female vet friends outnumber my male vet friends, too. What does this have to do with anything? I don't see anything helpful in your response, and it comes across as mean. A vasectomy is the simplest surgery I have ever heard of, and I'm getting shit on for wanting to learn how to do it so that I can decrease suffering in the world. What is the purpose of this kind of talk?" and gets nothing back. So I am assuming there was no purpose other than what I saw, to spew hate like Donald Trump.


The conversation is now mostly dominated by nice women, and I ask the woman who originally responded to me "Do you want the future results of feminism to be what happened on this thread, or would you rather have educated men who want to treat women equally? If it's the latter, I have advice for future action, if you want to hear it." And the response I get has nothing to do with wanting to future results of feminism to be equality or about wanting men to be involved.


I want all people to have equal rights. I also want all people to be nice. If you have a movement to pursue greater justice and civil rights but you also promise me I will be treated like shit when you get those rights and that you will have more power relative to me than you did before, I will never choose your civil rights. Some idea about civil rights is not more important than my experiential reality. I want the country to improve. 


Most men won't support you in acquiring those rights when they know the same thing. We already have a name for people who make a habit of treating others shitily. Prisoners. And we don't give them equal rights, for good reason. They abused those rights, so their rights got removed. I'm just trying to be pre-emptive here and act in everyone's best interest. So do you want to remove these mindsets from your movement, or would you prefer to have men opposed to your movement and keep these few voices? Because it won't be alternative facts when the media reports to men that this is how they are going to be treated when you movement succeeds, it will just be a subset of verifiable facts.


If you want men, who are a large part of the population and hold most of the power in the existing systems, to join your movement, you will learn to be really nice to them. I'm not suggesting that you aren't already really nice to them. I'm telling you from my evidence that your movement as a whole is not, and you want to undermine this vitriol before it becomes the voice and face of your movement. No one needs to be treating people the way I was treated. And could you help the anti-abortion ladies to feel more loved and welcomed, please?

A Facebook Comment

2 min read

I am disappointed that I have not received a reply to this comment yet. A person posted that the reason we may not ever be able to eliminate suffering in this world is because of a lag in our understanding of subjective and objective reality. I posted my personal experience along with an interpretation from my cultural heritage.


There is no objective reality. Reality is a moment to moment subjective experience. You may demonstrate this to yourself as an innate human truth through Buddhist practice. You may also demonstrate to yourself that suffering is an innate part of human experience. It is built in to our experience of the world. It is part of our purpose as a species to reduce suffering. I come from the Judeo-Christian cultural tradition. Our myth holds that God created biodiversity. This God is a God of death, as observed by the fact that the primary force determining the life on Earth is death. Less than 1% of all creatures make it to reproductive age. In our species, this is not true. This is part of what defines us as a species, that we invest more into our young than any other species, to ensure their survival to reproductive age. In our culture, the primary force determining the life on Earth is life. We use culture to shape our breeding, and we protect our young from death. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, this is evidence that we are the Sons of God. Jesus Christ showed us this path of how we are to walk upon the Earth reducing suffering through love and sharing our culture of protection from death with all creatures. We do not seek to eliminate God, which is suffering, from life. We seek to be in a co-creative dance as suffering and the reduction of suffering interact.

How To Give A Woman Oral Sex

4 min read

We take an approach of not bringing up sex to teens much. Why? It's a big part of life. Many people find themselves in sexually undersatisfying marriages, which leads to a decline in gross national happiness. Do we want sex education to include how to pleasure your partner instead of just biology and how to avoid pregnancy? Is that a nice thing for culture to do, to not have the young people spending time doing things their partners don't like as much with each other while they explore? Maybe we want this guide in schools.


This guide skips the part about kissing her lips, neck, breasts, thighs, and the other things she needs you to kiss. But you should already have explored slowly warming her up with this if you're reading. If you haven't, do you know that she doesn't prefer 15 minutes of attention of all sorts on each breast instead of just a few kisses? You need to learn.


The back of your tongue is smoother than the front, and a lot of times it will give the sensation of a lighter and  smoother licking. You use this knowledge as you explore how gentle to be. Start light. You can always give her a little more on the next lick and see if you notice any response in her face or from her sounds or from however you perceive her breath. 


Did she want her asshole licked first? Gently lick her entire pussy down the middle. Does she like it more starting from the top or bottom? I usually start at the top because she feels the sensation of my tongue touching her clit sooner and gets a little break to relish the first as I make my way down. I usually only do this a few times, but sometime you can ask if she would like more of those. 


Keep your lips on her as you do this. Find out what her clit hood feels like on your tongue. Use the back of your tongue to go from top to bottom along either side of the clit, alternating sides. Learn the definition of her clit, where its edges are, this way. Try using more pressure to help you feel how it is defined towards the base. Does she like you to just tangentially touch the outer edge or go all the way along one side from top to bottom? Start with just the edge. I've found this method to generate a nice amount of pleasure for something like the first 10 minutes. You will learn how much is right for you and your partner.


You may like to intersperse vibratory minute licks left to right to left as part of a bigger lick down the middle from the top. This makes your tongue feel like a vibrator. You can try doing this alone for periods of up to 5 minutes, and I've found it may make her orgasm before you intended. This one is also nice to do while sucking. You may like to just suck on her clit some, and it's usually nicer with a tongue stroke in the middle.


Try putting your lips where you want her to feel it with no tongue, take a breath, and hum.


She may even rather you gently lead her to climax this way instead of exposing her clit directly at all. You may start with either burrowing under the hood with your tongue and licking the top of the clit with the back of your tongue, or you may use your fingers to pull it back and expose the clit. I prefer using my fingers, and you get to see that thing which you've come to know by licking. You have to reset your pressure meter and reassess how gentle to be since it is exposed. You can use a lot of the same tongue strokes. I don't know as much about this part, as it's always been more intense than I'm trying to do for long. My favorite stroke is rapidly from left to right to left, and this is a nice ending. She also probably likes circles all around, and you can do those now. You gave her all those half circles around it on her hood, so why not give her whole circles and see how she likes it? But my preferred climaxes are the ones that come so slowly. Those are what have gotten me the most complements.

The Future of Civilization

3 min read

It is a conception of the design of the future of civilization that it represent self-similarity, in the method of a fractal function. Is this method, each culture presents in its own respect its contribution to a global view of a self-sustaining life of all plants and animals on the Earth. We each find a part of our truths in the part of the whole plan. And each of these cultures in turn, they have their paths of variety within them. It is the job of each of these cultures not to preach its path as what to do, but rather to walk the face of the Earth in that path. That is, our cultural roots, our heritage, or our chosen path on Earth of relevance to our cultural myth, it is our job to walk that as our path, as part of a self-sustaining future as a whole. We start now.

As an example of a cultural myth at work, Jesus Christ, the Son of the Judeo-Christian God, he walked the Earth as a pennyless political radical with total freedom. He did His work feeding the poor, healing the sick, and preaching His path to the Earth's people, sharing His Good News. These days, Jesus' message is sufficiently democratized that we no longer need to preach his path upon the Earth. It is readily available for all to see, if they search. Rather, it is our path as a cultural ideal to achieve singularity with, that as a people, as a whole, as a culture as a self-sustaining part of a self-sustaining whole, we walk the Earth doing the good work with the Son of God has done. We feed the hungry, we heal the sick, we give rest to the weary.

I propose that we do this for all the plants and animals of the Earth, not just of our own kind. That is, we generate a civil rights revolution, starting right here in the Southeastern United States, for a sustainable view of humanity in interaction with each of the creatures of the Earth, fully liberated from us, that they be given freedom to reproduce upon the Earth. We do not control their paths, but we control their future through the work of culture. Culture, it is something which happens as upbringing. I propose we share the technology that we use to raise our youth with the other plants and animals on Earth, that we generate the Bible's version of Heaven on Earth, of the lion laying with the lamb, yt the cultural upbringing of the lion upon the Earth, in the same manner as the dog, with whom we have given our cultural technology to make it not kill the bunny, if we so choose to direct it. We direct it with treats.


I very much doubt that you totally agree with what I have just proposed here. This is fine. For, you see, you find in your path a part of my path as your truth, and I in turn find in your path a part of my path, as my truth. This is the nature of the self-similarity of our paths, with how we share with each other our cultural technology to create the common good, a self-sustaining future of civilization, upon the Earth. Let us start now.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM tip

1 min read

If you have multiple Business Units, a real-time workflow ran by a System Customizer in one business unit may prevent users in the other business unit from modifying the same entity that the workflow runs on. This is because the workflow must check if the current scope is in the business unit. When it is not, the workflow will not run, and this prevents users in that business unit from saving records. This is only for real-time workflows, not background workflows. Also, having all workflows owned by a System Administrator will fix this.

I made a delicious chocolate cake for a wedding. If we had known how much would have been enjoyed, I would have made 2.

It used Equal Exchange cocoa for the cake and Guittard chocolate with amaretto di amore classico for the frosting. The butter from New Zealand is better than Irish. Alter Eco's dark salted brown butter chocolate is delicious.

I really like the idea of sharing all of our data. It's a bit creepy to have your entire life exposed, but I feel that is the way of the future. We will collect a variety of data through our everyday existence to share on an internet of data, the same way that we share posts on our internet of information. I want to be a part of this. Lives should be lived without things that we want to hide.

Today, I will help people do stuff on the computer. I like this. I enjoy having jobs that allow me to do it; otherwise, I don't typically get very motivated. The only language I really know I learned because I could help people do natural resources research due to it. I should find how to better use this instead of trying to find intrinsic motivation to learn new stuff, which I am probably not going to get, given that I have not already.

backups

1 min read

Today, I will be leaving my external hard drive connected while at work to make a backup of backups. I only have 1 copy of backup, and for most of the stuff, I don't even have the original at this time. But I still use these files, occasionally, maybe not all 310,000+ of those, but some. I decided that I am not going to buy new electronic things I would like to learn like the Intel Galileo, but I am planning to buy an external 4TB drive for a regular backup of backups so that I have 2 or 3 copies. I will also be able to keep a hard drive image of every drive I regularly use on that, so that I may restore to an older version with a single command if I run into disc failure. I encourage you to make backups of your backups, as well. Even if you don't still care about the files you have, you may 10 or 20 years later. So keep regular backups.

I have created this website to join the IndieWeb movement. There's a lot of code which I don't know underlying all this, so I am using Known as the backend. The point of the website is to own my identity. The digital identity is part of that. I also aim to keep track of the data that makes my life, and that will help with diagnosing problems and acting out improvements.
