Posse Bonus Post, Something Happy?

This is your posse bonus post this month. This photo of the dolphins was just too much to pass up, I had to post it. It is just so darn cool. Wish that I could get some dolphin time, alas life is.

There is some good to be had, if you look for it; sometimes, you have to really do some searching to find it. It is out there, like a formula hiding in plain sight. Some fractals are easier than others.

It has been snowing the last twenty-four hours. Nothing major, just some snow flurries. It has been a nice change, this winter is being kind thus far. New year, seems like the life we want is playing hide-and-seek from us. Pity!

Music is keeping me company, and running at more than 50%, I’ve been busy working on my site: Misfit.Ctopher.Me. It now has a feature to “Like” the photos in the main page, and keeps count of how many likes each post gets. It wasn’t too difficult, took me two days of effort to make it happen. I’m glad it worked out, I think its pretty cool, and neat stuff.

Not much going on; it seems, no matter how much effort I put forth, it is all going into a huge vacuum. Where is everyone at? They must be watching TV, or playing video games. I hope they are out having fun, that would be good. Life is meant to be lived; you should live it to the max!

Seems, I’ve been in a better mood the last few days; times are tough, life is rough. Wish it were going to get a lot better, right quick too! Thank God there is music; I would be so lost, banging on trash cans; trying to make music.

The human race, seems to be going in circles. No one can make their minds up about much of anything. Pity! Maybe it will get better for everyone one of these days, real soon!

Haven’t heard from anyone in months. It is a lot of isolation. More than my fair share; you want some? If I could bottle and sell isolation to people for a profit, wow; that would be something! I have plenty of it; if you want some, write me!

If only my isolation felt as good as this photo looks, I could use some of that, maybe just dangling my feet off the cliff looks good to me. How mighty the truth can be! Nature doesn’t lie.

I made a video, you should check it out; I think it is really very good. It is on YouTube, and here is the embedded version, if you want to watch it now!

This was my latest project, which I spent an afternoon working on, and a few cups of coffee to complete. I think, it turned out really very well. Some people, think my voice isn’t very good; like to see them smoke two packs a day and still have a voice.

Trying to find meaning; seems this world is made of poison, trying not to let the haters make me meaner than I already am. Life needed to change, and for the better. Such is life.

Have to let this make me better, working towards some goals. I would like to see some results from my effort, yet; everyone is so darn busy these days, seems they don’t have time for me.

Read all the great posts on my blog, some of my writing has gotten a lot better, I feel my progress is very likely, REMARKABLE. If you saw my writing a few years ago, compared to my current work; I think it has come a long ways in the last month.

Have a nice day!! Thanks for reading!!

Writing Levels And How To Go From Average To Great

Writing At 10th Grade Level – How?

After taking the time to find out why no one is reading my work, one of the subjects I have come across is the level my writing is aimed at. It seems, my writing is between 6th and 8th grade levels. After asking myself what the formula for writing at 10th grade levels would be, I have found the following are true.

The use of complex-sentences with a higher number of words per sentence and the use of words that contain more syllables. This seems to be one of the basic formulas for improving my writing levels by several grades. There still have to substance, and style; and I wonder how to make the best use of my thoughts which are often abstract and difficult to express at all.

Also the use of compound-complex sentences is another factor in making the writing of a higher levels of writing. I’ve given some thought to my writing, and my goal is to write at a level the audience can understand; however there is need to improve the quality of my writing a great deal. What can most people read, and what level is best to express my message to the audience that I most want to reach? Seems that my current writing skills are not able to express my thoughts in a way that is intelligent enough to reach the audience I want to attract.

What writing advice can you offer about the structure, syntax, and formula for writing at a more intelligent level? How can I improve my current writing to new levels while still being clear about what I want to express? Many of the thoughts I write about are abstract ideas and nothing really concrete. My thoughts were, to keep it simple enough most people could grasp the ideas in a clear way.

By making less sentences per 100 words, and increasing the number of syllables per 100 words, that might be one way. What other ways are there to improve the quality of my writing? I really want to know how to write at a higher level. Because when people believe you are intelligent, they have a stronger willingness to listen to what you have to say. And I really want people to listen to what I am saying, because it matters a great amount to me personally.

I am only educated at a high school level, however I am very intelligent, and if I understood the formula to write at a higher level, I could work with what I have to make it happen.

So give me your best writing advice on how to write better!

Visions Of The Future – The Problems With Progress Today

Our ability to progress is only limited by peoples ability to adapt.

-ctopher

Visions Of The Future

Some cultures plan 10 years in advance. It seems some cultures are planning hundreds of years in advance. What we need is someone with some real vision to to work with.

What could be accomplished

If you think about what could be accomplished, you might start to wake up. Most people are content with keeping the status quo intact. Why is it, that real change always feels like revolution? It must have something to do with the fact, that change is difficult for most people.

What is possible is only limited by people’s ability to adapt to change. Most people are so set in their ways, that keeping the status quo is the only thing keeping the peace. Change must be very difficult for them.

It seems just getting people to think about the possibilities is difficult to do. They don’t want to think, because they have not grown accustomed to thinking. They let someone else do all the heavy lifting, then who ever packages the ideas in the best box seems to be who wins.

While that is good for most people, my thoughts are; they should give my ideas some consideration. Some of these ideas will only come from me, unless someone tries to steal them. Hmm.

The Future

We have to ask ourselves, “What kind of world do we want to live in?” What kind of life do most people really want? Because it seems some people are content with any old plain existence they could be allowed to have, they don’t give much consideration to actually designing it themselves.

My goal is to help design the future. I sense that if we leave it to some of the people in charge, it will look like something vogons have made. That simply won’t do. You know about the vogons right? They have poor design skills.

Somehow the plans for the future have to be put on display in a public place for all to see. We should at least know what plans for the future there are. It doesn’t do much good to keep them in the basement, without any light to see them.

The future could be better. From a perspective of architecture, much can be improved upon. We need better transportation, housing, shopping, and entertainment avenues. The lack of culture in todays modern world leaves many with this feeling that life is empty and devoid of meaning.

Which isn’t really true, there is much meaning in life. There is much to be done. They allow their lack of ability to think to hold them back from understanding more is possible. The real problem is the thinking must be fixed before they can tackle other problems. The other problem is, they don’t have anyone to teach them how to think to be able to identify the problem. So they are basically blind to seeing the real facts.

The future will have to be designed. We have to have something that will really work for people that find change difficult, while still providing functionality for everyone.

Selfishness

People only really care about themselves. The functionality of today’s modern world has made it impossible for them to care about anyone else. If you want to see life get a lot better, then we have to open the heart in fundamental ways that allows the light in.

Too many today have allowed basic dignity to escape their grasp. Some have tried to take their dignity away, some have allowed theirs to be taken. A high minded civilization does NOT oppress its people. A high minded civilization is built to allow people to grow. Seems we have outgrown the old world, and everyone is trying to find new footing in an unstable world.

New systems have to be designed. With functionality that really works for a long time. What we have today is not 1/10 of what is possible for the world.

However, after giving it some thought; really the future can not be oppressive. There can not be any real progress until this problem is fixed. Until people start thinking what is best in the long run for everyone; the future will continue to look bleak.

Real Progress

Real progress for what the future can look like can only be made when people stop being oppressive and start changing for the better. Yet, change is so difficult; the status quo is the only thing to keep the peace.

Maybe the human race doesn’t want a better world? Doesn’t seem like it. They are content with any old existence out of a box they can get their hands on. Doesn’t feel very promising.

Do you see the problems? If you see the problem, start working to make the change needed to make life better for everyone.

life Thinking transcript Writing

Why You Are Miserable…

I have heard it said that five percent of the people think, ten percent think they think, and the other eighty five percent would rather die than think. This essay is for the ten percent that think they think. I want to feed your mind, you don’t have to think like me, you just have to think.

I have said that to know the truth you have to know what some of the lies are. That is because if you believe the lies you won’t see clearly the real truth they want to hide from you. I am not going to tell you what the lies are, you have to think and ponder those things yourself.

Whats Your Soul Say?

What i can do is ask some questions to guide you into asking yourself the tough questions that you need to understand. No one can do this for you, you have to be willing to go there in mind and spirit regardless of how it makes you feel. There is the main point, most people are afraid of thinking because they don’t want anything that makes them feel bad. Most people want sunshine and rainbows all the time, they don’t want to think because they are afraid of their own thoughts.

You can overcome these fears and still be happy. You can ask yourself the questions and think about the answers for a long time. The truth is once you begin to enjoy thinking, you might find it difficult to ever stop. In zen they talk about enlightenment, I don’t care what you want to call it; thinking is good for you. Most people reach a point that they stop growing, they stop learning and become comfortable with they way things are. I believe this is unhealthy. To truly rise above the status quo you have to learn, grow, and push your comfort zone everyday.

Practice Makes Perfect

Thinking requires breaking your comfort habit and exploring things that make you uncomfortable. Thinking for long periods with no direction will spin your wheels and not take you very far. The goal is to reach a destination in mind and spirit. To be content with life, to be happy and at peace with all beings.

If you find you are always angry or you get upset easily, if you are bitter in spirit; you have a long ways to go. Not everything is about you, not everything is about your fragile insecure ego. When you learn to think your ego learns to relax, you don’t have to always be right. This is where virtue comes in, a person of virtue can be patient enough to learn something new, no matter how long it takes to understand.

The answers won’t come in a second, an hour, a week, or even a year. The thought process takes a long time to become clear. To begin start asking questions about what you already know, challenge the answers. Make arguments for and against them until you are completely confused. Then look to see what the lies are until you have truths you understand. Only when we lose ourselves can we find our true self.

Be Patient

It’s important to be patient with your mind. If you are in a hurry you may as well stay in your small superficial world and never bother with these things. If you are in a rush to get somewhere you had better hope you have already gained the ability to think for yourself. Learning to think for yourself in your own way is the most rewarding gift you can give yourself. Freedom of thought, Freedom to control your thoughts, to be free from manipulation of the media, news, and propaganda will make you happier in the long run.

Most people live their lives on auto pilot, only thinking what they already think they know. Pride is the enemy. To navigate the world of pure reason you have to always be a beginner in spirit. In the experts mind there are few possibilities, in the beginners mind there are many. At first there will be confusion about why there are so many possibilities. Find the ones you like to think about and ponder them in depth.

Take out the distraction from your life and see what is left to think about. If you take the distractions away you have more time to think about what’s important. Learn some new skill or trade. See how long it takes you to master it. Then move to something else, and master that too.

The Ultimate Selfie

The Ultimate

It’s the year twenty eighteen. The world is in chaos, people aren’t able to make ends meet, they can not agree on what to eat for supper much less who should be president. Everyone is an expert, which basically means that everyone has reduced all the possibilities to such a narrow ledge they are all about to fall off a cliff and never question why.

Everyone wants equal rights, without equal work or effort. everyone wants to be special without actually being special. Everyone is so sensitive that a cross look and someone might kill themselves.

I would like to put a stop to this madness. I would like the whole fucking farce to end. I want it to end like a long drop with a sudden stop. My favorite fashion designer killed herself today, leaving a note. What about the rest of us? We’re left here to try and make the world a better place and pick up the pieces in ways that no one will understand.

Please Use Your Brain

Most of these people that rely upon government, or religion, or some other crutch of booze and drugs are but children. Like very spoiled bratty children that are all control freaks and want everyone to address them as queen bee.

Most of them couldn’t do half of what I have in the last twenty years and still be breathing with a pulse. You know everyone hates narcissists, they don’t really know why, but i do.. most of them are destructive and only care about themselves, using cruel methods of lies and false flattery to gain temporary gains that will wear out in two weeks and fall flat only to prey upon another victim with just as cruel tactics.

I want to talk about another kind of narcissist. Those who are self respecting people that care deeply about themselves and others. Those who don’t judge people and show everyone the same amount of respect until the person actually does something deserving of having lost their respect.

There are some rare breeds in this world. There are a few that are one in a hundred, then there are the ones that are one in ten thousand.

I want to tell a story. Something that if everyone had life would be simpler. Something everyone wishes they had. This is my story.

Chapter One
By the way…

Sitting on the beach with my wife in the beautiful Caribbean with the perfect sea and the scent of tropics in the air. The beach is deserted, it’s just us.

“Amber, should we take a swim?” I ask her without looking up from the view before me. “Oh I guess we could swim, would it be more fun with some heavy weights so we can dive deeper?” she asks looking down at me as if i what i was seeing was heaven whispering in my ears that it was time to play.

We suit up in the wet suits and put ten pounds on the belt so we can dive to twenty feet. We swim for half an hour before reaching the point where we can dive down. “I’m bonkers for you, you know that right?” “of course, we wouldn’t have it any other way..”

Talking About It

Sometimes when we talk we get lost in who said what, sometimes it’s like talking with yourself in just thinking a thought and knowing the answer. As we both know everything that each other knows already there are no secrets from ourselves. There would be no way to keep a secret from ourselves. You tell one of us anything and we both know it. Instantly. This can be very useful when dealing with non-native people who don’t know us.

Technically we are one person, it just happens to be that we share two bodies in which we are married to each other. I’m the guy and amber is the girl. Alex and Amber. Two of a kind.

We swim out and dive down deep. she chases me down, and i hold my breath while she takes photos of us swimming like dolphins. It’s great. you couldn’t beat it with selfie stick and a thousand dives in your world.

When we swim back to the shore and dry off. clothes are sticky, it’s better to be naked under those wet suits. less rub and rashes. we spend the better half of the afternoon just watching the view. We have no special place to be, nothing special to be doing. The real fun will be tonight anyways.

Time passes. . .

You have to wonder what it would be like? To be both a boy and a girl in two bodies with one self awareness. To be married to each other and have adventures that no one would ever understand but each other. To have a secret between the two of us that never leaves our minds. To be playful and fun, without being a stick in the mud. If we both feel the same, whatever were doing is always perfect because that is what were doing right then.

Feeling playful, have fun and play. Feeling down today, take a day off. cycles come and go. It’s more fun than being alone when there is two of you. Being male and female simultaneously has it’s perks. But that’s not the part you wouldn’t believe. Try touching your hand with your hand. it’s like nothing you have ever known.

I love This

Ratio Mix

Max had been awake a whole hour before Alex ever got up. He would have had a cup of coffee but it isn’t his style to drink coffee. Since he had been awake he had devoured two terabytes of data from the morning reports. Max is a very special individual. His main job is to go everywhere that Alex goes and make sure Alex has the right information to say at every appointment and meeting all day long. They have a wireless transmitter that max will use to upload the data Alex needs right on the spot and it forms words or pictures in Alex’s mind so he can understand it.

Max wasn’t unhappy about his job, he liked Alex a lot. He didn’t always like the orders Alex’s boss would give. Yet he figured there was nothing he could do about that. His neural synapses would filter the data and there was always an agenda for the day of what is needed to make or break the deals that are happening.

Deal Days

A new deal took place almost every fifty two minutes. Alex awoke and walked into the kitchen where Max is sitting patiently. Max didn’t bother to take the time to send a good morning message into Alex’s mind.  Rather he waited for Alex to send him the daily status message of either, “ah shit” or better yet “oh yeah”

Alex must have been tired this morning, Max who was timing his responses, timed him at four point two seconds to send “oh yeah”; Max who cross referenced all good morning responses and calculated the average found that Alex was toying with him once again and everything was most likely ok.

Some mornings are worse than others and in the event of an “ah shit” some meetings are rescheduled for another day depending upon what the problems are. Today looks good. Alex and max woof down their food. Then they leave the penthouse on the thirteenth floor to go do a days work. Hopefully as honestly as possible. Alex and his team mate Max aren’t the only game in town. Yet the odds of someone with the capacity that Alex and Max have is very low.

Upload Data

The idea behind the team work that they performed was simple. Max knew everything that was needed to be known. Alex was the guy who made the pitch based off max’s data. This free’s up Alex to perform better when under pressure. Though Max doesn’t tell him what to say or what order to say it in. Rather Max just uploads the right information at the right time.

Max is a dog.
