Job update.

I got a job. I’m now busy, something I’ve been looking for a while. I didn’t do it because I needed the money. I did it because I needed to need money. So I created a job for someone else, that created a purpose for me, and then I was off to work making pizzas to pay someone for something no one ever cares about hoping that this will start to make people care. Things cost money, but the best part of life is flowing with that current of buying and selling. The consequences in my life are purer and more focused. They only weigh as much as they need to, and the shadows of language are gone. But as I focus, I direct more of the world around me with a single thought. As with this, the world is mine, and as it is mine, so is it yours.

Walking on water

There are three ways to separate people: the simple, the people drowning in their complexity, and those who walk on water. The simple stand not knowing or caring how far their legs can take them. Those who drown, realize their legs can take them far but get caught up in the things they cannot do. Those who can are the reason these people continue to try. The metaphor and literal alike are simply done by those with the capacity. Structure allows one to walk on water. Structure allows a water strider to move on the surface tension of water. The social structure a person grows up with allow him to think of much grander things in practicality.
All things relate. I speak in metaphor, but I have in mind a specific idea. Simplicity occurs in the capable and the unaffected. Complexity occurs with unnatural aspirations. If all things relate, the capable are able to see the patterns. Those who drown themselves in complexity cannot very well achieve their goals. The specific concept in mind is the achievement of goals, and if occultist notions and novel ideas require people to wake up and realize the water, walking on water become a miracle, but if natural growth only requires people to see the patterns that are exploitable, then walking on water is only the extension of walking on land as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. Learn to see these things and how they relate. Follow the path that feels exciting while remaining open to messages from other sources. These messages may very well be the key to reveal hidden pathways to metaphorically walking on water.

Wizard’s Guild
Processor

Description
The Wizard’s Guild is a collaboration for intellectual entertainment and personalized emotional satisfaction. It is an intellectual society for the purpose of practicing magic, the art (the creation in congruence with emotional satisfaction) and science (the practice of methodical achievement and observational understanding as opposed to memorizing theories and practices for a test or performing someone else’s theories without them being the missing piece in your own research). Within the Wizard’s Guild we consider school, computers, and google to return emotionally weak and intellectually inconclusive results. Because the internet is not a useful tool for research, we’ve created this position. The Processor functions in accordance with “Law”, a component of language such as grammar or definition, to generate significance, in other- words, meaning or feelings. The processor works with the operator and the technician to function as a biological computer. Salary is negotiable, starting at $15 per hour. Part of the duties of the processor will be to reference the Wizard’s Guild. These references are not paid; however, they are a necessary component for generating profit within the Guild. Without this pay and or time decrease for lack of funds. With these things in mind, Processors work as independent contractors for the Wizard’s Guild. The position is open to all Members of the Wizard’s guild and is a continually expanding position. Membership in the guild is free and more processor positions will be added as membership increases. The positions is worth much more than we can pay you, but as the guild improves we will be able to pay the full value for the position. Because good computers are worth about $1000 and human equivalents are valued around $26 per hour and up, these two factors will set the standard for pay as membership increases.

For the Santa Cruz Area

Please Contact Jo S. E. with a résumé, references, a Wizard’s Guild application notice and an essay addressing this topic:
The nature of Law and Feeling. This will serve in place of a cover letter but feel free to include one. For the essay a good place to start is to look at facts in law and look at how people feel about crimes they’ve committed. The best papers will not necessarily be academic. It doesn’t matter what language it is in. I will read it. If it’s in English it makes my life easier but write in the language you are most competent in. The place I started is with people closest to me. I gave them a rule or looked at a rule they did not follow and paid attention to how they felt about it. Pay specific attention the rule as an nonnegotiable consequence of facts, and any attempt to negotiate without pointing out incongruence in facts as an emotional response. Such as “this is a(n) (thing here)” “well yeah. I guess, but . . . this little thing here. It’s kind of different.” Law is an agreement between people of a culture. And meaning comes out of the differences between experiences. If your paper says those three things, you’ve addressed the prompt. As long as you stay focused and don’t stray to far from those ideas you will understand. Applicants that display adequait understanding by relating the topics to their own life with receive special consideration.

Like I needed to be more dense. Ironic, isn’t it? The odd thing about the course of my life is it hasn’t meant anything up until now. Recently I’ve come across the idea that there are agreements that make up language and meanings and feelings and actions that come out of that. These agreements are largely communal. They come from your parents and your friends and family. They are not structured to change. The only time anyone ever recognizes a change is when they leave everything behind not knowing if they will survive, succeed, or triumph, or perish, fail, or lose all the while knowing that they cannot go back. On the way to college, I still knew many people and things were familiar. I still lived at home and I hardly changed my habits. There was no consequence, no judgement for my behavior other than the overall ambiguous quality in the things I turned in based on a rubric no one has really explained or expounded upon directly with consequences and rules specific to each clause in that rubric, something ambiguous since middle school and even a little before.

Since we’re reading a work of fiction, consider that it is possible for the author to completely portray a character completely different from his character to illustrate an antithesis between the two ideologies. It is possible for an abolitionist author to write from the perspective of a racist to portray something important to people who would otherwise not identify with the author. By being completely abolitionist in a time where there were more racist people, so much so that there was no distinction that racism was bad in the first place, you become singled out and separated from the society. By writing with an ideology in mind for a character, others with that ideology are inclined to continue reading. This is especially true when the ideology in use is minority.

Very people see the way a cold-blooded killer can justify his or her actions. Very few people can understand why Hitler sanctioned murder. People don’t look at how Manson and his family thought they were doing the right thing. It doesn’t change the logical facts of the case, the things they were tried for (or would have been tried for if they could have found Hitler alive). It is possible to justify it. It is possible to become so involved in personal emotions and see no indication that there is anything wrong from other people, it may see like they want what you’re doing and you become so enchanted by the fictional story you or someone created that you ignore the facts.

The way language works, the way we communicate, the sole basis for mental illness, is based on shared consequences and a significance, meaning, that will bring the same consequences along with similar memories to the surface. By ignoring consequences or not having the consequences defined, individuals are prone to mental illness. Sometimes, consequences, however real and accepted, whenever they are too unpleasant, people tend to ignore them.

Despite the work being written in a way that supports Sanoma Cranden’s ideology, he is still in prison. He still killed people, and he is going to go away for a long time. Still, the investigators need something from him. There is no way he’s getting off, not with all the bodies he’s left littered throughout the world and all the families he left without a daughter or a mother, but they still need him. Despite seduction being a tool used for nefarious purposes, much like a gun, it is the person using the tool that makes it evil. The chief, an honored citizen of justice and respect, uses the same techniques as Cranden. The chief is a charismatic, kind man as demonstrated by the way he consoles the officer after Cranden aggravates him. There is a very strong contrast between Cranden and the Chief. Both characters are equal in strength and achievement for their respective ideologies. This is the ideal relationship for super charging the conflict and the plot. A superhero needs to fight a supervillain eventually or the story takes a different direction. That direction would reveal more personal weakness than personal strength. In the introduction I explain that is possible to change the world without really changing it. I also explain that it is important to work toward honor. These things are understated. I realize that, but I’m done preaching. People don’t get the message anyway. I’d rather show people than tell them. In the intro I simplify the consequence, and through the story I give that consequence the mental fodder to form significance, something that will differ from person to person.

The story still has a long way to go. I’m wondering how many people appreciate the complexity. It’s a lot of work to create something so intricate and detailed. If it’s not worth it and people are just looking for pulp fiction, I can do that. It makes me feel like I’m not applying myself, but if it’s what people want i can do it for a while. I don’t get very many people commenting. I’d like to see more of my readers comment before I start writing, but eventually I have to start somewhere. Like and comment. I appreciate the support.

From my life, I’ve always felt that something was missing. I wanted to just live like everyone else, to make things easier on myself. But living that way made dreaming impossible. I’ve had a hard time falling asleep because there’s so much more to think about. I talk to people, but that’s not enough. I end up having conversations with people about everything, but then I keep having new ones in my head about new and exciting everythings and each aspect needs to be explained because something is missing. This same thing that’s missing is why is started Zedu and Wizard Seed in the first place. Something needed to change. People needed something else to connect, to help them understand in ways that are greater than words.

People are addicted to the words of others. It’s no wonder, words are stimulants just like any other drug. This is completely fiction, but the science is real. If you’d like to understand these words, you need to engage the other half of your brain where all the strong connection are. The other half of the brain is the one you use to break down things. This part undoes all the connections. Unfortunately, without the other half, trust falls apart, people stop growing and you run the same risk that all word leaders have. You are just as powerful as they are, so take it with a degree of freedom and a degree of subjugation. Without both, you can be dangerous.

This is a story about the very same kind of danger. If given the power to manipulate and charm, if given the option to get away with any crime and never have to face punishment or atone, what kind of person would you be? The fear that you would hurt people given the option to lead them stops many people from becoming great. Never the less, we should consider the kind of destruction we can cause and what will heal it. So I give the liberty to explore your passions, to rape and pillage as you please, but when this page closes or you lose sight of this page, you are bound by morality again. This rule is not subject to interpretation nor metaphysical loopholes. If, in any way, a person breaks this imaginative liberty, I am not responsible. You are free to imagine so long as you only imagine. But if you infringe on anyone, you must make it right. This story shows what happens when this pact is broken, and a person gives himself the liberty to hurt people. This story shows one way to make it right and atone, but more importantly, It shows that even the wrong things can become wonderful given the right approach. The conlusion I’ve come to in seduction is people when ignorant of pain, suffering, debt, and ownership – things often true of people with happiness – are able to control and manipulate people and change and destroy things without hurting, manipulating, or really destroying anything.

Tenacity

You know why you make mistakes don’t you? I’d say you know less than you think you do. Challenge yourself to see more, to do more, to act in ways that bring you to the forefront of technology and science instead of listening to science as a religious word, or scripture. Schools are the reason we err. According to Kathryn Schulz to err comes from the word to move, and making mistakes really do get us going. In college I screw up. In high school, I screwed up too. These things tied me to my work and kept me going. There shouldn’t have to be so much error inherent to life to keep us going.
