Blog Break!

I’ve gone back to recording and playing. I’m currently working on “Berit-Vol.2” and feel way more energised this year than what I did when I first started working on “Berit-Vol.1” If you want to follow and support the making of my new album then please go here: Please support my music! It is also possible to support my creativity via PayPal., and get the same rewards as a Patron.

I’ve already written several new pieces of music this year that has nothing to do with the “Berit” series, I’ve also gone back to proper practising and have picked up the creative pieces from before I got sick.

Back in 2016 it appears that I had made it my mission to complete the lyrics and concepts for my unreleased metal music, in addition to this I find myself overwhelmed by an abundance of audio notes, written notes, etc; featuring song ideas, lyric ideas, book ideas, character ideas, you name it.

I feel very strongly that I need to sort out as much of this as possible, in addition to this I have lots of ideas churning in the back of my mind in regards to relevant/timely blog entries, but I’ll let those simmer in the background as I finish up on all of these others things that are “cooking.”

The other day I was out in town doing something unusual in this day and age; browsing through library books on the quest for references for my 2nd illustrated lyric book. I will probably post a picture of my 1st illustration as I’ve only shared this with my followers on Patreon so far. I made a pretty cool artwork last year and have pretty much mentally mapped out how I want my new lyric book to look like so now it only remains to put all of the individual pictures together. Here are some pictures from my 1st lyric book, it is available as an ebook right here: ILLUSTRATED LYRIC BOOK the physical version is only available through my Patreon.

As I’ve regained my inspiration and drive I’ve lost interest in regularly blogging so I’ll take a break from this hobby, at least until I’ve sorted through all of these lyrics, story ideas and songs that are spread around all over the place.

Until then.

This is a very interesting read! The key to our present and future is in the past! I highly recommend checking out this article and the topic addressed!

West Hunter

There’s a new paper out in Science – ” The genomic history of the Iberian Peninsula over the past 8000 years” .  It discusses genetic change over time, from hunter-gatherer days, the arrival of the Anatolian-ancestry farmers, and the coming of the Indo-Europeans.

The chart above shows what happened when the Indo-Europeans show up. Autosomal steppe ancestry goes from zero to ~40%, but on the Y-chromosome, it goes from zero to 100% over a few hundred years.  As quoted in the New York Times, archaeologists ruled out violence as a possible cause. [ ” I cannot say what it is,”said Roberto Risch, an archaeologist from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, who was not involved in the new studies/ But he ruled out wars or massacres as the cause. “It’s not a particularly violent time,”, he said.

Instead, Dr. Risch suspects “a political process” is the explanation. ]

Everyone’s using “social construct” wrong

I highly recommend reading this article! I find this blog extremely interesting overall! Make sure that you check it out!

evolutionistx

Well.

Dr. Seers is close.

A “social construct”–in the context of groups of people–is just a stereotype. We’ll call it an “idealized version.” We learn this idealized version by interacting with many individual instances of a particular type of thing and learning to predict its typical behaviors and characteristics.

Suppose I asked you to draw a picture of a man and woman. Go ahead, if you want; then you can compare it to the draw-a-man test.

Out in reality, there are about 7 billion men and women; there is no way you drew someone who…

Trump can’t fire anyone and neither could Tsar Nicholas II

I highly recommend reading this article!

evolutionistx

The late reign of the Russian Tsars was marked by their near total inability to exert their will over anything.

At Tsar Nicholas II’s coronation festival:

Before the food and drink was handed out, rumours spread that there would not be enough for everyone. As a result, the crowd rushed to get their share and individuals were tripped and trampled upon, suffocating in the dirt of the field.[39] Of the approximate 100,000 in attendance, it is estimated that 1,389 individuals died[37] and roughly 1,300 were injured.[38] The Khodynka Tragedy was seen as an ill omen and Nicholas found gaining popular trust difficult from the beginning of his reign. The French ambassador’s gala was planned for that night. The Tsar wanted to stay in his chambers and pray for the lives lost, but his uncles believed that his absence at the ball would strain relations with France,

Keeping Up With Your Bible Reading…

So what do you do once you’ve read through your Bible, had your confirmation and established a routine of going to church?

You can share a faith journey video (which I will do on my YouTube channel), you can raise money for your church, but then what?

After editing and uploading my faith journey videos it was a reminder of how awesome it is when you’ve made the decision to follow God, however, that enthusiasm can easily fade away as prayers become inconsistent and your Bible starts collecting dust. I’m happy that I received some new Bibles for my confirmation because this means that I have new translations in my possession which is a great incentive for reading The Bible once again!

What does this version say? Did I miss anything? What has been changed in this specific edition?

Establishing a habit of spiritual practise can be difficult. In February I had the brilliant idea that I was going to do a spiritual fasting. It’s probably one of the worst ideas I’ve ever had. Trying to fall asleep while hunger is gnawing at your guts is not exactly something that I would recommend. I’ve read that you should start these things slowly such as cutting out one meal during your first fast.

It was certainly not a pleasant experience, partial or non-partial, it didn’t take long before I ate properly again to put it that way.

It was a great reminder however of how terrible it must be to be starving as a result of poverty or lack of resources. If anything it will make you ever more grateful for food which is something that a lot of Westerners take for granted. The same can be said of water.

I hope that my readers have a wonderful Sunday! I personally hope that I will finally be well enough to cough my way back to church. I’ve felt really terrible about missing out on services lately! It really adds something to your week, I strongly recommend it!

 

 

 

Christians in Pop-Music, Homelessness in Finland & Fake News.

After I had written a blog post about Homelessness in England I received a very interesting article in the mail about how they have tackled homelessness in Finland. Some of these methods are now being tried out over here which is a good thing! I hope that it will work!

Here is an article that I came across about the increase in Christians in pop-music! Considering how Christianity is consistently ridiculed it is quite staggering to see how many major pop and rock artists considers themselves to be of the faith! I found this to be a very uplifting read indeed! Christianity in show-biz.

I’ve taken a break from reading the news but decided to feature these two articles since they have a positive vibe to them.

The issue at the heart of the negative news-cycle is money I’m sure. I saw a TED talk with Monica Lewinsky a while back where she said that she was one of the very first internet shaming victims. She claimed that everyone threw her under the bus in the name of “click-bait-articles” without any concern for her wellbeing or her future. It was a very interesting speech that I would highly recommend. Her parents were apparently on “suicide watch” since they were so worried about how she would handle all of the negative attention. She couldn’t get hired anywhere either.

You need stories that can sell regardless of whether or not this increases tension and even create conflict. Bad news & scandals sell, and if something sells then people who are “clever” tend to promote this for all that it is worth regardless of what the cultural impact might be or how many lives that are utterly destroyed.

I’m sure that this is one of the reasons as to why there is such an abundance of “fake news.”

“Seeing What Others Don’t” by Gary Klein – My reaction to Chapter One & a bit of Chapter Two.

So back to my incredibly unhealthy hobby…

I guess being illiterate when it comes to ones understanding is preferable when it comes to the horror of reading….

What I have in my possession is a book that would probably fall into the self-help or personal growth category, and if this work had crossed my path let’s say … five years ago, I would probably have loved it.

The issue is that I’ve read quite a lot of different material since then … such as….

  • A deeper understanding of genetics  paves the way for targeted medicine, beauty treatments and weaponry. On one hand there is nothing to find but praise and optimism for this on the other: total hysteria if any official findings clash with political correctness. At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter because while the Western world is busy with political limbo dancing our enemies and competitors will advance in this field.

One of the most common products that private companies are seeking placements for in the YouTube community are DNA testing kits to discover ones heritage.

Obviously if you are to make a YouTube video featuring such a product you’ll probably be expected to test it normalizing the act of sending ones genetic material to a private actor.

This DNA harvesting combined with the behavioural data-mining at the hands of online media platforms (such as this one I assume) paints private industries in an interesting futuristic light.

Targeted online advertising is all about the individual just like custom-made beauty treatments and targeted medicine.

It is the individual that the private sector are after which makes DNA-denialism absurd.

Just like it is vital to manufacture DNA-denialism whenever it is convenient it is equally crucial to feign a diversity-friendly profile while exploiting the resources of those one pretends to aid….

  • My reasons for going on about this is that I couldn’t even finish reading one chapter in “Seeing What Others Don’t,” without seeing what others don’t. The author seemingly attempts to paint a picture of humanity as consistently and generally: curious, creative and insightful with an innate pattern recognition software.

He presents the following “sample” to the reader: a Nobel Prize winning hard-scientist, an anti-fraud investigator, a police officer, the man who discovered AIDS and himself.

All of these characters are/were involved in investigative professions, even the author….

What I instantly detected was that this is a work shrouded in “noise” targeted towards people like myself and others who are pattern-observant, people who have a curious and investigative spirit and those who are inherently creative with insight deeply embedded into their behavioural patterns.

Yet the work is shrouded in “noise“ so that the author appears to be appealing to anyone something that is useful if aiming for speaking engagements and general popularity.

Everyone seeks to optimise their own performance and especially their income.

From the first chapter and the beginning of the second I sensed that the aim of this book is to seemingly unlock personality traits that are unevenly distributed within the populace to being with.

And I guess this is why I felt an underlying dissonance in the back of my mind as I read.

This feeling of dissonance was so troubling that I had to put the book down in order to write some notes and figured that I could might as well just write a blog entry.

  • It greatly surprised me and puzzled me when I started playing the guitar that so many musicians seemed to lack creativity. To me it made no sense that one could play an instrument but have no desire, drive and/or ability to create. I spent many quiet moments reflecting on this very peculiar phenomenon only to reach the conclusion that I really did not get it.

I don’t understand how you can write without having the ability to come up with characters and story lines.

Nor do I understand how it is possible to paint and draw without having the ability to create.

Something appears incomplete and off to me, yet the majority of musicians that I’ve encountered have not possessed even an ounce of creativity which baffles me to this day. :/

  • I guess this was another reason as to why Gary Klein’s book made me feel weird in addition to the inclusion of James Watson and Francis Crick.

Watson & Crick identified the structure of DNA which hasn’t helped Watson much since he has been completely and totally thrown under the bus due to his comments in regards to diversity.

As I said above: it is beneficial to non-Western actors that our culture currently is as it is.

So why even bother to comment? You don’t bring a knife to a gun fight – and the gun fights of the future are found in our very own building blocks.

This might be why private companies want to have a sample of your DNA!

To be continued…..
