Ore the Land

When the weight of this world takes its toll,
Then it's off to the forest I go,
Oh to sit by the stream, just to gaze and to dream,
on the waters as they slowly flow.

How my Spirit it longs to be free,
From this lonliness that's haunted me,
Yet here by this stream, as I gaze and I dream,
I am glad of its good company.

CHORUS: Ore this land....... how the waters do flow......
Above this land.... how the winds they do blow...
On this land..... all the green and the gold....
Soon this land... will be covered in snow.

As I recall the seasons and years,
Watch a slow parade of smiles and tears,
Here I still by this stream and I'll gaze and I'll dream,
Till I'm one with these waters so clear.

CHORUS: Ore this land....... how the waters do flow......
Above this land.... how the winds they do blow...
On this land..... all the green and the gold....
Soon this land... will be covered in snow.

 The Return of the White Rabbit3 comments

The White Rabbit, last seen at the entrance to Merlin's castle (witness here [link] ) returned this morning digging around in that part of the Sacred Grove where we hide the most sacred of the sacred plants.

"Where have you been all the time? And what are you looking for?" I asked him curiously.

"One question at a time please," he answered, chewing on something.

"OK, where have you been all the time?" I insisted.

"Oh well, it's like, you know, kind of, like, eh, yeah, that's it, kind of..."

"Since when do you talk like a Modern day American?"

"It's like, kind of adopting to, you know, environment and all this stuff, kind of, you know..."

"This here is the Sacred Grove, and this one is neither in Glastonbury nor in California!"

"I know, you know, kind of, it's like..."

"OK, OK !!! So, where have you been all the time since I've last seen you?"

"Always here where I was, am, and will be. It's YOU who moved around, kind of, or it's like at least that's what you think, you know!?"

"Hmm," I said, "so what are digging there in sacred, secret part of my garden?"  More >

 Omitted, tzz: definition of Anoia & Protennoia Vs. Pronoia2 comments
picture18 Sep 2007 @ 17:57, by jhs. Ideas, Creativity
An omission in my list of Noias was pointed out to me today:

Anoia: the absence of Noia, the knowledge (of Pleroma), or the INABILITY to achieve the same, attributed to a certain interdimensional race of Beings in the Gnostic scriptures (in Hermetic Ifá 'those who eat', namely the energy of Epinoia of others, sic!, pls refrain from calling names in the commentaries, will you!).

Wikipedia talks about the derivation from French 'ennui' for the English equivalent 'annoyance', completely ignoring the Latin/Italian prototype of 'annoia'. Oh well, I still love and admire Wirkipedia, of course :-)

But in checking the net, I found the interesting site ANNOY.COM which talks about the super-double-speak US law that makes it a felony to intentional say some something indecent to annoy someone else. Cool BLOG.

Another question I heard was about the difference between Protennoia and Pronoia. The answer is very much beyond this BLOG, let's say that in Hermetic Ifá we'll see the Protennoia as the original, prototypical Pronoia of the Universe, unfolding in a triad (trimorphic); from an idealistc point of view, one could boldy state that the Pronoia of man would be the intentional product of the orginal trimorphic protoennoia, a speculation everyone should decide for him/herself.

Some may complain here that 'Hermetic' equals 'secret' and one shouldn't talk about things like that in public. My view is that those who 'know', know it anyway and those who don't won' bother... secrecy is needed sometimes, of course, but other in those instances, it is being abused to create cult-like organizations with the intent to exploit and/or suppress fellow humans.

 Math Terms & Gender2 comments
5 Aug 2007 @ 14:10, by swanny. Ideas, Creativity
August 5, 2007


just a casual observation here, I was trying to see if mathematics has any gender qualities or terms or distinctions and apparently just skimming the surface the answer seems to be no. math does not seem to address or distinguish any gender specific qualities or phenomenon.
Now is that a gross oversight or just ?
Language on the other hand has many gender attributes and terms and such.

the info available though seemed to suggest that men are better at math which appears gender neutral
and women are better at language which is gender specific or aware.

this seems somewhat mysterious ?
