Trees and rivers and mountains are symbols about our experience here on Earth. I feel like I live a symbolic life and this is a dream world. What is this dream about?
I was telling M about someone I’m related to in the Encyclopedia Britannica. Then he said he had a family member who worked at Encyclopedia Britannica in the US.
The Hebrew word for covenant is b’rit, meaning covenant, pact, or treaty. It is one of the most frequently used words in Hebrew scriptures. The word B’rit implies the shedding of blood in the process of ratifying an agreement.
I AM is I AM NOT (amniotic). They are part of one thing and you can’t be separate, you are always part of the whole.

The Hebrew word for covenant is b’rit, meaning covenant, pact, or treaty.
David Icke says we are trapped in a Moon/Saturn matrix. I read the other day that the Moon is the little hand on the clock and Saturn is the big one. I like David Icke’s theory but I think all is mind, and in our mind, we understand that the Moon and Saturn are connected to time. Also, the moon connects us to earth. All of the math works out for the current understanding of the layout of everything in space, except that the matrix has added some dimension for the experience.
First, you make the world nice and flat.
Then, you make the Sun and the Moon equal partners.
Then, you take this flat DNA that looks as it is bound by time
un-flatten it so that it moves
from your point of view, look up in the sky
We are all right here and this is the center of the universe.
Before you laugh or stop reading, just think about this: have you, yourself, ever been in space to see a globe earth? Have you ever seen curvature from an airplane? At first, it seems ridiculous to even challenge a globe earth, since we’ve been told something from as early as we can remember…
When I look through my telescope, I see the moon like this.
I see curvature and it looks like a ball.
I am not saying that this doesn’t make sense, it does…mathematically and logically.
But if you are trying to understand what I am saying LOGICALLY, then you are missing the point in the biggest way imaginable.
Maybe our perception is skewed.
What is this dream about? Love.
The Tree of Life
I was doing some True Detective work, and I made some connections at the tree.
Dora is Dorothy
Dorothy fem. proper name, from French Dorothée, from Latin Dorothea, from Greek, literally “gift of God,” from doron “gift” (from PIE root *do- “to give”) + fem. of theos “god”
He mentioned the establishment of the Dynasty in Carcosa, the lakes which connected Hastur, Aldebaran and the mystery of the Hyades. He spoke of Cassilda and Camilla, and sounded the cloudy depths of Demhe, and the Lake of Hali. “The scolloped tatters of the King in Yellow must hide Yhtill forever”, he muttered, but I do not believe Vance heard him. Then by degrees he led Vance along the ramifications of the Imperial family, to Uoht and Thale, from Naotalba and Phantom of Truth, to Aldones, and then tossing aside his manuscript and notes, he began the wonderful story of the Last King.
To the Editor of “British Malaya”
[British Malaya, May 1936]
In the April magazine your correspondent in Malaya asks me, in courteous terms, to tell him why I gave the name “Carcosa” to the house that was designed and built for me at Kuala Lumpur by the late Mr. C.E. Spooner, assisted by Mr. A.B. Hubback – as he was in those days – and I have no objection to answer the question even though the simple truth may spoil a number of excellent stories. When this house was finished and occupied I read a book which interested me. It was called “The King in Yellow” and at the beginning of this book there were some verses with a note explaining that they came from Cassilda’s song in “The King in Yellow”, Act 1, Scene 2. Here are two verses: –
“Strange is the night where black stars rise, And twin moons circle in the skies, But the stranger still is Lost Carcosa.”
“Song of my soul, my voice is dead; Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed Shall dry and die in Lost Carcosa.”
I did not call the Resident General’s dwelling “Government House,” or “King’s House,” because neither seemed an appropriate name in Protected States. I did not give it a Malay name, because it was to be the residence of a British Officer; so I took a book name as has often been done before.
As to the word Carcosa, I imagine it was the Castle of the King in Yellow, but the book explains nothing about either the place or its occupant. That apparently can be found in the play, to which there are only occasional allusions. Probably it is a word created by the author’s fancy, though it looks like a combination of the Italian words cara and casa and would mean “desirable dwelling,” as indeed I found it.
The only curious fact is that this name was prophetic for, as I understand, the house has lost its name and is thus, “Lost Carcosa.” The occupant, I am told, is now styled “F.S,” instead of “R.G.”
19 April 1936.
In True Detective, “good” and “bad” were always blurred. Often I would be convinced that the killer was one of the detectives, and if it turns out they weren’t, concepts of good and evil still inter-lapped and it was a pendulum swinging, weaving a complex fabric of one big thing containing all parts of itself. The denial of this truth keeps humanity in a low vibratory state. It’s always this, and there is not one without the other:
The “I am not”
Why is this so important? Because the implications of knowing or not knowing is keeping humanity in a corner! It’s about thinking there are limitations when there aren’t!
If you go to the grocery store and someone hands you a list, that makes it easy. Usually it’s several items, bread, eggs, hot dogs, cheese, paper towels.
But no one would ever give you a list of everything they DON’T want! Because then you have to spend forever trying to figure out what ISN’T on the list of thousands and thousands of things of everything on the grocery list. Currently, we live in the ‘few items at a time’ world.
The “I am not” is the unlimited and it’s always there. We are capable of gnosis…we are capable of knowing a list, and a not-list.
What does this have to do with Oak Trees?
The Oak tree’s roots reach as far into the ground as it branches reach to the heavens. This makes the Oak a symbol of saying, “as above; so below”
another words, it MIRRORS.
MIRROR at the TREE
this tree in Texas…
While much of Texas reels from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, one very old resident remains unbowed.
But one tree stood tall in the face of Harvey’s wrath. One Big Tree.
In fact, the oak — considered the second oldest of its kind in America — not only stared down a hurricane, but emerged seemingly unscathed.
“You don’t get old by being weak,” the post noted.
Indeed, and it was just the kind of strength Texans needed to see.
‘We bend, but we don’t break’
“That big oak is a symbol of Texans everywhere,” wrote one Facebook commenter. “We bend, but we don’t break. God bless us all and God bless Texas. We will rebuild!”
Another commenter added, “This tree is Texas strong.”
The largest southern Oak in Mandeville, Louisianna, 1,500 years old…
The Seven Sisters Oak
The origin of the name, Seven Sisters, is lost in the obscurity of time and memory. One current story is that the name describes seven main trunks that comprise the single tree. Yet, the oak actually has more than seven trunks that split from its immense base in two clusters. Another speculation is that the name is a translation of an older Choctaw Indian name that’s now forgotten. The Choctaws were residents of this area for many years before white men arrived and a tree of this size would possibly have been well known and named by them.
The Angel Oak in Angel Park near Charleston, North Carolina.
Angel Oak was damaged severely during Hurricane Hugo in 1989 but has since recovered. The Angel Oak tree is featured prominently in the book The Heart of A Child by Emily Nelson.

Maybe I’m out on a limb…
it “IS” all there ever IS
There is something about this world place that is afraid of letting go. The information we get about what’s “out there and beyond” is a strictly monitored flow of information. It’s often paired with “building a better future”, or “think of the children”, etc.
Thanks to Abraham, our world is dominated by religion that seeks to control one half of the population more than the other.
It’s all got to do with going beyond the boundary and fear. The Garden of Eden is free and wild.
“Free Spirit” is not what comes to mind when you think of Saudi Arabia. They take control of the currency to a new level with their ridiculous rules about women. It’s so nice of them to finally allow women to drive.
Obviously, not everybody in Saudi Arabia is happy about that and the sexist taunts started flying…
Earlier this month, a Saudi cleric was banned from preaching after saying that women should not be allowed to drive because their brains shrink to a quarter the size of a man’s when they go shopping.
Of course, they still have to go around wearing tents and staying separate from men. Here’s this “indecent” woman who dares to walk unveiled. The nerve of her.
The Saudi news website Sabq reported that the religious police have written to other agencies calling for an investigation into the “indecently” dressed woman.
The woman’s actions prompted abusive backlash online. Since the incident the issue has been trending on Twitter under the hashtag “demand the trial of model Khulood”.
The Saudi writer Ibrahim al-Munayif told his 41,000 Twitter followers that if everyone disregarded the law in this way there would be chaos.
“Just like we call on people to respect the laws of countries they travel to, people must also respect the laws of this country,” he wrote.
Saudi Arabia, this is for you
Here she is with her male guardian
It’s hard to avoid the ever-growing Flat Earth movement. It’s flat. It’s round. I’m thinking the point is, going beyond the boundary. Obviously, NASA is silly and every time they show an image of something, its CGI. There are all kinds of theories about why NASA keeps up the charade, and I think it is symbolic of the constant avoidance of people seeing each other as themselves. Paradoxically, “going out and beyond” is right here, right now. Break the barrier and see that everyone is a mirror and paradise happens. It’s all right here. Love is not somewhere in space. Heaven is a place on Earth.
This is a dream realm and dreams are a series of symbols. Dreams are wacky and hard to understand sometimes.
Littlestone-on-Sea is a small coastal village close to New Romney. It was established in the 1880s by Sir Robert Perks, as a resort for the gentry, at the point of the local lifeboat station. At low tide a World War II Mulberry Harbour Phoenix breakwater is visible and along the coast there is a P.L.U.T.O. or Pipe Line Under The Ocean, station, formerly used to carry petrol across to France during the D-Day landings.
Littlestone is the location of Mr Bedford’s landing in the sphere in H.G. Wells book The First Men in the Moon. Mr Bedford leaves the sphere on the beach and enters a hotel. A local boy called Thomas Simmons (the name of an old school friend of Wells) who witnessed Mr Bedford’s arrival later enters and takes off in the sphere and is never seen again!
Has anyone ever been to a star party at an observatory? Or, have you ever been to an observatory? They are usually at a university and they rarely schedule any public tours and when they do, it is all very controlled.
From the website of Griffith Observatory in LA
“Griffith Observatory does not permit the operation of private, unauthorized telescopes on its grounds, for either public or private use. The Observatory is responsible for the public safety of its visitors and for the accuracy of any information provided in an astronomical and public setting. Allowing deployment of private telescopes on the grounds implies endorsement of both the instruments and the operators, neither of which the Observatory is capable of verifying.”
So, they are protecting people from something they might see? And if something is seen, then Griffith Observatory will announce what it is that you are seeing. Typical bullshit rules and stuff.
This is from the Q/A page of The University of Texas McDonald Observatory
When an astronomer does research with a large telescope, the majority of the time, they’re not using cameras to produce a pretty picture that would be suitable for displaying on a screen at the Visitors Center or on your computer at home. 70-80% of the time, astronomers at McDonald (and most observatories) are using the technique of spectroscopy … splitting the light of an astronomical object up into its component colors and carefully analyzing that spectrum. There is a tremendous wealth of information packed in the light from these objects that spectroscopy and other techniques allow the astronomers to access. Unfortunately, that information is not readily accessible in its raw, unprocessed, and unanalyzed form. So, it’s not the sort of information from which any conclusions can be drawn. There would be essentially nothing to be gained from sending a raw feed of information to the Center from the research telescopes for the purposes of viewing at a Star Party or online.”
In other words, every picture of space that you see is either composite or CGI. And you are not allowed to look through a big research telescope.
The Earth is flat. And you would be able to see this if you could get beyond the wall. Let’s say you had the money and resources and team of experts to take a private exploration of Antarctica. To ensure that you wouldn’t be shot by military while exploring, there are a list of things you must do before taking on this endeavor.
Organisers should provide the following information to the appropriate national authorities in the format requested.
In other words, if you really could get all the things necessary for exploration, it’s that ambiguous, last item on the list ‘and other matters required by national laws’, that could be used to prevent you from going beyond.
In the True Man Show, the controller is in the ‘Moon Room’.

Shattered. But you can do it…. the Star card is about hope.
Be fearless. Break through
Heaven is a place on Earth.
Here in CHA, there are weird things around every corner. Out-of-place places, people seeming to be from another dimension, feeling like you are ‘somewhere else’, huge buildings that are furnished and have offices, but no people,…just to name a few. One of the out-of-place places is an abandoned Tiki house, previously owned by Billy Hull, previous owner of the nightclub Castaways Club and Lion’s Den. Here is the gate to the Tiki House.
This place couldn’t be more out-of-place. The street it is located on is lined with gorgeous older homes of traditional American styles and classical european styles of the early 1900s. And this place is a freakin’ TIKI HOUSE PLAYBOY PAD! Unfortunately, it’s in a state of ruin.
It has become a popular place for teenagers to sneak in and explore. Not too long ago, M and I saw police cars three different times in one evening, going to the tiki entrance and parking, then escorting the adventurers off the property. From what I can tell, the adventurers set off a silent alarm to the police (because I don’t hear anything and I would think a loud alarm would send them running). After the police come, we see the young adventurers chatting as they walk back to wherever they park, and I’m as happy as they are that they are never taken back to the station (that I’ve ever seen). The Tiki palace is several houses down from us, so we are watching all this activity from a distance with a point of view that is more interesting than a nuisance, as the next door neighbors of the tiki place wanted it demolished years ago. Here’s a video that a very successful adventurer took while exploring the Tiki palace. Pause it at 1:42 😉
The Tiki Palace has fallen into disrepair and has been vandalized in recent years by local youths. The property has three bedrooms, all of which are connected to the swimming pool by tunnels.
Mr Fletcher said: ‘The place is unique but the damage was disappointing. It’s like finding a lost pharaoh’s tomb to find it’s been pillaged, all the treasure removed.
‘The architecture and story are amazing. The pool is the focus of the entire house, you walk into the main entrance and you’re nearly in the pool.
‘The pool has two bridges over two little outlets that lead out of the main pool area which go under glass. The outlets lead up into separate bedrooms.
‘There are a few bedrooms, a bathroom with opposing pink toilets, flanked by a sunken stone shower. Most of the house, however, is focused on the pool which takes up most of the square footage.’
It is not known what sort of debauchery went on in the mansion but Hull is known to have owned several strip clubs, including Billy Hull’s Castaways Club in Chattanooga.
In one of Frank’s latest blogs, he talks about attending a party and meeting a character named Huge Janus, and from the pic, the word “swinger” comes to mind…
(Do you mind if I use your pic?)
a swingin’ club in ‘69
It’s interesting that the owner of the Tiki palace owned a bar called Castaways Club and Lion’s Den. From what I’ve read, the Lion’s Den was a smaller, more private area in the Castaways Club.
Another place in Chattanooga that is seeming to be a manifested portal is Yesterday’s, I mean Tomorrow. I used a fake ID back in the day to get into Yesterday’s. Now I use my real self and just walk in Tomorrow. I can walk into tomorrow, (or yesterday), today, or any day I want with no fake id. 😄
Yesterday is now Tomorrow.
In the Tomorrow building, there is an art house movie theater called The Palace Picture House
Are you a Mise En Scenester?…or a SINephile?!
Now, here’s something weird and interesting. If you search google images for Palace Picture House, most results are images of the Tiki house!
Castaways, time portals, and the picture playing in front of you.
Is The Palace Picture House a safe haven for the Castaways? Do we get to pick the movie we “see” in front of us so that we always have the reality of what we want? If a movie production company can create any kind of scene at any place, I take that as anything is possible for manifestation. Everything…EVERY THING is first a thought. Of course the best things aren’t things. Anyway, it is a message in a bottle.
The question: what do you want?
Stranded on “the Island”, a place where anything can happen and grow, Janus is looking backwards to see what we want to get rid of, and looking forward to manifest what we do want.
In one story of Tiki among the many variants, Tiki was lonely and craved company. One day, seeing his reflection in a pool, he thought he had found a companion, and dived into the pool to seize it. The image shattered and Tiki was disappointed. He fell asleep and when he awoke he saw the reflection again. He covered the pool with earth and it gave birth to a woman.
Tiki lived with her in innocence, until one day the woman was excited by an eel. Her excitement passed to Tiki and the first procreative act resulted (Reed 1963:52).
An eel…a shock of excitement. A brainstorm. Creation of new realities.
I want Paradise every moment. Time for the evolution. There’s a fierce brain storm in Paradise Island right now.

Here in CHA, we’ve got 2 different time zones. If I call this place called Riverside Catfish House in Chattanooga, to make a reservation, from my house in Chattanooga, then I have to remember that they are an hour behind me, even though they are in the same city.
The line that determines central and eastern time is the boundary of Hamilton and Marion Counties.
It is very scenic around here with the river winding around very old mountains. It’s the Tennessee River, known by other names previously.
The river appears on French maps from the late 17th century with the names “Caquinampo” or “Kasqui.” Maps from the early 18th century call it “Cussate,” “Hogohegee,” “Callamaco,” and “Acanseapi.” A 1755 British map showed the Tennessee River as the “River of the Cherakees.” By the late 18th century, it had come to be called “Tennessee,” a name derived from the Cherokee village named Tanasi.
Hogohegee was a name on a Mitchell Map.
The Mitchell Map is a map made by John Mitchell (1711–1768), which was reprinted several times during the second half of the 18th century. The Mitchell Map was used as a primary map source during the Treaty of Paris for defining the boundaries of the newly independent United States.
Here’s another map with “The Suck” …
Speaking of sucking and rivers…the Hoover Dam is what this article is all about.
What are you looking at?!
The dam straddles two time zones.
The Hoover Dam has lots of occult symbolism and it seems like kind of a weird place for all this symbolism. Of course, the Seven Sisters…
Alcyone, designated η Tauri (Eta Tauri, abbreviated Eta Tau, η Tau), is a multiple star system in the constellation of Taurus. Approximately 440 light years from the Sun, it is the brightest star in the Pleiades open cluster, which is a young cluster, around 100 million years old. There are a number of fainter stars very close to Alcyone, all most probably members of the same cluster.
The Hoover Dam is an arch-gravity dam or arched dam, which is a dam with the characteristics of both an arch dam and a gravity dam. It is a dam that curves upstream in a narrowing curve that directs most of the water against the canyon rock walls, providing the force to compress the dam.
Anybody feeling tense lately?
not “really” like this, but a flood of information in your entire being…the apocalypse
It feels like a constant mis-alignment until the FOUR wheels of the unveiling happen. Until that happens, I don’t wanna live forever. I want to live forever in harmony with my brother.
delta (n.) c. 1200, Greek letter shaped like a triangle, equivalent to our “D,” the name from Phoenician daleth “tent door.” Herodotus used it of the mouth of the Nile, and it was so used in English from 1550s; applied to other river mouths from 1790.
Tent door…are we inside or outside the tent? Either way, we aren’t seeing everything that is either outside or inside, and it’s probably both. The “tent” is a box.
Sometimes, the inside is scary.
I kinda think you can’t escape unless you go inside. The outside world is a reflection of you. And you could say the mirror is when heaven meets earth.
River DELTAS are a place where time ends.
I was sitting at a lovely restaurant having lunch with M and a friend from New Orleans. They kept talking about a place called “Tremayne”. It turns out, Tremé sounds exactly like Tremayne. I knew about the place called Tremé (that sounds like Tremayne) before hearing their conversation, but at the time, I was thinking that a place in New Orleans called Tremayne completely made sense to me, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s Tremayne or Tremé, and it is the same thing.
Sister Jenny makes a point about ongoing rituals at DELTAS…
Why? Well, let’s go to the YouTube oracle and see what takes place at the mISsISsippi Delta in New Orleans… Watch. You won’t be disappointed.
Part deux coming up later today.
Airband is the name for a group of frequencies in the VHF radio spectrum allocated to radio communication in civil aviation, sometimes also referred to as VHF, or phonetically as “Victor”. Different sections of the band are used for radionavigational aids and air traffic control. Spectrum usage: The VHF airband uses the frequencies between 108 and 137 MHz.
The emergency communication channel 121.5 MHz is the only channel that retains 100 kHz channel spacing in the US.
May 1 is the 121st day of the year (122nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 244 days remaining until the end of the year. May 1st is Mayday, also known as Beltane, a festival that celebrates the beginning summer and the power of the sun and the potent power of the resurrecting god, Osiris. Resurrecting, forever, eternal.
The first water drawn from a well on Beltane was seen as being especially potent, as was Beltane morning dew. At dawn on Beltane, maidens would roll in the dew or wash their faces with it. It would also be collected in a jar, left in the sunlight, and then filtered. The dew was thought to increase sexual attractiveness and maintain youthfulness.
Psalm 133 King James Version (KJV)
133 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
barb (n.) late 14c., “barb of an arrow,” from Old French barbe “beard, beard-like appendage” (11c.), from Latin barba “beard,” from Proto-Italic *farfa- “beard,”
ARROW OF TIME (symbolized by the life-giving force of RIVERS) and we are at the deltas, or the nether lands of time. Delta is door, or gateway.
River symbolism has played an important part in many story genres. This symbolism, though, is somewhat ambivalent. J.E. Cirlot notes that river symbolism “corresponds to the creative power of nature and time. On the one hand it signifies fertility and the progressive irrigation of the soil; and on the other hand it stands for the irreversible passage of time and, in consequence, for a sense of loss and oblivion.” http://www.symbolism.org/writing/books/sp/2/page6.html
Rivers flow to the sea, from a higher place to a lower place, because a quality of liquid is to be LEVEL and takes the shape of the container.
Lumpur Radar: “Malaysian three seven zero, contact Ho Chi Minh one two zero decimal nine. Good night.”
Flight 370: “Good night. Malaysian three seven zero.”
Vanished. Malaysian flight 370 simply vanished, leaving a few, yet mysterious clues.
Some shocked relatives found it difficult to believe that this was genuinely debris from the plane. They said they think their loved ones are still alive and are being held at “an undisclosed location for unknown reasons.” https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2100795/mh370-malaysia-airlines-missing-indian-ocean-search-investigation/
The earth is round and if you have any given point, then there is an antipode on the other side of the globe. There are plenty of antipode tools online, so you can see where you end up if you dig a hole to the “other side”. https://www.antipodesmap.com
This part of the world is so huge, that only very few places on land have another antipode on land. The Pacific and Indian oceans are seeming to be over half the size of the entire globe. To get lost in these waters…whelp, I guess you’d need a miracle…
Anywhere “WE” are, is a mirror of ocean.
Flight 370: “Good night. Malaysian three seven zero.”
The earth is round. The earth is flat. The earth is flat because how are all those people in OZstralia and New Zealand not upside down? Water always gets level. And surveyors will tell you that they don’t adjust for curvature when laying down railroad tracks from coast to coast. Now, Y NOT? Does the earth not curve at all from the East coast to West coast? I think, mathematically, it does. I’m math’tarded and even I can figure out that there would be curvature, given the diameter of the earth and the distance in miles from coast to coast. If there is curvature on earth, why don’t engineers design dense, hard metal tracks with curvature for railroads? And, just making a point here, but no one… NO PERSON ever, (EVER!) has circumnavigated the globe north/south, all the way around. I know it gets super cold, but we supposedly have been to the moon, and we supposedly put a bunch of satellites in orbit to take pictures of things, and NASA says they probe atmospheres and stuff, and put their benben stone on moving rocks in space and super miraculous highly technical stuff like that, etc., etc….yet no one has EVER made the north/south round the globe trip. Just wanted to point that out.
Kuala Lumpur means “muddy confluence”, as it is the place where two rivers come together.
This is what the quran mentions about the confluence of two bodies of water meeting:
He has set free the two seas meeting together. There is a barrier between them. They do not transgress. (Quran, 55:19-20)
A barrier…maybe we can’t hear each other?
Psychiatrist Michael Hunter and fellow researchers at the University of Sheffield in England monitored the brain activity of 12 men as they listened to voice recordings and found they process male voices differently from those of females. Women’s voices stimulate an area of the brain used for processing complex sounds, like music. http://discovermagazine.com/2005/nov/men-hear-womens
The limbic system part of the brain reacts emotionally to music, giving the listener chills, joy, sadness, excitement, pleasure and other feelings. The Newark University Hospital notes that the ventral tegmental area of the limbic system is the structure that is primarily stimulated by music, just as it is by eating, sex and drugs. The amygdala of the limbic system is the area typically linked to negative emotions such as fear and is normally inhibited when listening to music.
limbic (adj.) “pertaining to or characteristic of a border,” 1879, in anatomy, in reference to the brain, from French limbique (1878, Broca), from limbe (14c.), from Latin limbus “edge” (see limb (n.2)). Limbic system is attested from 1950.
This mimicking and contagion of emotions may rely in part on the putative human mirror neuron system: neurons that are active when you produce a certain movement but also when someone else does the same – neurons to which you and other people are the same person. A rich amount of emotional information is conveyed through movement, including prosody, posture and facial expressions. Activation of the mirror neuron system by these movements may help us understand other’s emotions, since we are modeling the movements related to emotional expression as they were our own.
Where does the music come in, then? It is suspected that mirroring and resulting emotional contagion does not only happen between people but also during music listening. It sounds quite incredible, but it is possible that emotional expression in music could also be mirrored by the brain and then give rise to the corresponding emotional state in the listener. http://syncproject.co/blog/2015/7/21/music-and-emotion
Let’s talk for a minute about two emotions that I’m not particularly fond of…guilt, and it’s close cousin, shame. What is the difference? Quite a bit, actually.
Guilt is feeling bad about what you do. Shame is feeling bad about who you are.
shameless. now. I AM SHAMELESS. I talk back to you. I tell you what…
King James Bible
Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet Isaiah 3:16
17 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. 2 With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”
3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. 5 The name written on her forehead was a mystery: babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes, and of the abominations of the earth.
6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.
When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. 7 Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished?
