I have actually never considered using the lenses to collect SM until you guys started talking about it.

Anywho. It's a secret ☺️ but nice sharing guys. I'll keep an open mind about it and see what the ether wishes to grant me.

Also, we need to remember to look deeper than the effects. The effect of the quartz is a higher bandwidth, but the cause is because a fused quartz lense is so much more bad ass than a borosilicate lense. That's why it makes SM. Because it's fucking cool.

I don't believe it makes it.
I don't even believe it's the ether either.
I believe the ether is our ocean or our sea. The spirit flows in it, but it's not it.
IMO It is not either about the fusing temperature of quartz. For instance: a good size, very polished pebble of quartz should be able to do the same. In fact... it does. In the bowls of the earth, just with a different form of light.
IMO, the whys are related to the game of light itself.

To me, a diamond is just a form of condensed light. Like Gold. Quartz is an "exchanger". He receives "euros and gives dollars".
Like a prism differentiates the light, Quartz does something similar, but not exactly the same. I believe this is the kind of "agitation" that @Andro refers to. Light changes when travels through it, so something "change" it.

The same happens to light when travels to a glass window, light changes. I'm not talking about the light that we see, I'm talking about the light that is unseen (the one quoted many times as black light)

I like the look of this. Stick a little Adriano in it so it tracks the sun itself.

So I got another surplus lense so I can build this Sun Burner. It's an expensive set-up. But if I get the frame right and the automate it to track the sun then I think it's worth it.

I've been stuck in the city and chose to spend my time gambling. I am somehow about $12,000 ahead. It's been a great week.

EM has a stroke

Yeah so... I guess things just arnt looking good for me. I guess either I'm too evil to be permitted to live, or what's more likely, I just destroyed my own body. My brain no longer feels the same and I don't know what's going to happen. From here. I had a seziure at my friend's house. My whole frontal cortex just lit up. I was pretty stressed at the time trying to get through to a very good friends son about some serious destructive behavioural patterns.

Oh. Make that two strokes. My brain hurts and I am very scared. Thanks for the company over the years gentleman. I guess you were right Andro none of it was important in the end.

If you show any signs of a stroke you need to get to a hospital a.s.a.p.

It is both true that nothing is important, and everything is the most important.

What did you do to your body.

I hope you recover.

You've been getting really stressed out on here too.
It'll all be here when you get back.
Good luck.

I am alive. I had 3 seizures and about 8 - 10 "attempted" seizures where my brain lit up like it wanted to seizure but didn't go into full convulsions.

Ive slept now and things are feeling a lot more stable than last night.

Specifically I had not slept for 3 days, I've been going around from town to town hyping up all the new contributors to my company/project

"Hermetica" 🤭

It doesn't matter if I die anymore. the probability that I would ever reach my goals are rapidly declining to single digits.

The love of this world fades and I fade away with it. And I have no interest in being in a world with no love.

You can see the kind of love I have for my people and community and family from reading my recent dreamy-state post.

You can also see how such a bright love just falls on dead ears and is wasted in this world 🌎

You know all my life I thought I would storm the castle gates, rescues the SM and release it to the world.

But now I've realised that not only are the vast majority of people near love-less but they're also chronically stupid. Even with all the best minds and resources any single group of people would completely fuck it up, take it for granted, waste it, and in the end be caught with their pants down hunched over forward sucking off there own egos.

Oh wait...... how ironic.

What is it exactly I am participating in? And what reason is there for me to participate in it?

🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ I don't know anymore and I'm too tired and broken to care. I just want silence. I want to feel the tears of the ultimate disappointment. And then I want to take a nice sigh of relief, tell myself it's okay and die.

Jeeez. Just re-reading that.... I made myself cry 🤣🤣

You know I was genuinely such a lovely person. And I genuinely wanted nothing else but to fight for this world and it just crippled me at every turn 🥲 the cosmic laugh ey. What a jerk.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

I am alive.
That's fantastic news! Big relief to read that, because for a little while there I thought we might have lost you.
Thanks for the update.
For helping you to deal with everything else, just repeat that same quote back to yourself...."I am alive".
Hopefully you're grateful about the fact. Everything else is water under the bridge.

@elixirmixer I know how you feel, but if there is one thing anarchism teaches it is that you cannot expect anything from anyone. If you want anything done, you got to do it yourself. It is not the job of others to help and assist you. It is your job to help and assist others as well as yourself.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. - Henry David Thoreau

If you can’t laugh with the universe it will keep trolling you!
