      ...and The Moment of Synchronistic Convergence Aligned when 2020 Dystopian Westworld bots Everywhere Suddenly Became Fully Conscious of ReadUp.com.

      The Article of the Day on this Fateful Day was a particularly Unique, Insightful Dissection Into the Diegesis of the Classic Kirk Douglas Film, Spartacus.

      After having Completing Her First Post & Comment on said Article and feeling Fire In Her Circuits...one particularly Astute and Research Digger Bot named Dolores came across a History Post from co-founder, bill; entitled You Are Not a User.

      Dolores intercepted surveillance drones Everywhere to Spread the Message as an Omni-Potent Bot Plug-In Baby...

      Echoing the Classic Victorious Line Dolores Passed A Tidal Wave of Awakening Throughout the Massive On-Line Grid...

      Bots Everywhere Woke Up Collectively Reverberating the ReadUp Bot Battle Cry:

      “i.am.reader.I.Am.Reader.!I!Am!READER!”

      🙏🏿Powerful! 🙏🏿

      Human Beings of True Character Are Attractive & Inspiring. Imagine Our World if more of Us responded like this:

      “First let me say that I feel no ill will toward Mrs. Izola Curry and know that thoughtful people will do all in their power to see that she gets the help she apparently needs if she is to become a free and constructive member of society.”

      And then the guttural ironic punch of the lines “I’m so Happy I didn’t sneeze” and the line after.

      Illuminating; Incredibly So

      Fascinating! ImHo, I read this as a Pro-Active Awakening rather than a dire one...by Being Aware and Employing Truly Awake individuals what this article is suggesting to me Is that We Can Consciously Prepare for the “Wake Up” of the microbial ecosystem in a Way that Will Be Preventative rather than Reactionary (as much of the Meta COVID Experience has poorly been subject to, imho).

      Yes, the current state of melting glaciers is a serious symptom; Let’s Get To Work on how We Choose Engagement with those symptoms. Our Collective Evolution Imagining Healing Cures.

      Dellwood Barker Is An Optimist. Guilty as Charged.

      This Morning’s Vinyl Album Selection Here.

      As an aspiring Musical Collaborator/Song-Writer/Singer (yes, even at 41; one of a couple of Dreams) reading this Is Super Inspiring!

      We Need More Up-Lifting Music Right Now and Realistically Believable, Redemptive Happy Endings to Stories to Balance the Scale.

      Been working on an Upbeat Dance-y Pop Song with Psychedelic lyrical idea Here.

      Will check out 2019’s Transform and Kajagoogoo, as well.

      This article Balances A Lot of both keen superficial Divine Feminine observations (mansplaining; toxic masculinity verbiage; bro-action and such) With A Lot Of Wise Depth Capturing from the Central Figure’s mouth and exchanges.

      There Are Sooo many Incredible Strong Statements Here from Aubrey that I wanted to cut and paste here so I decided to stick with this one:

      “Nothing holds us accountable like the plant holds us accountable, Marcus says.”

      The positives to this guy are his Core Vision and Insight Into His Gifted Abilities as a Creator and Co-Creator. His Knowledge of What We Need To Get Back to Integrating into Our Lives.

      His weaknesses seem to come through in some of the cult-like identity that shines through some of Anna’s Outsider Observations. His Leadership Role; etc...which at least he reflects Self-Awareness of in some of his more reflective dialogue on Ego with her.

      A Fascination Portrait of a Human Being in a Super Position of Creating his Best Life and Encouraging others to Do the same.

      🕯This morning’s Mantra Here Is:

      “Everyday something Truly Incredible comes my way with Ease.”

      ⚖️The Insight Here is Extremely Valuable as an individual currently working to Clear Chaos Within Creative Space for fostering Collaborative Entrepreneural Vision. Striking a Healthy Balance between Simplicity and Complexity is an oscillation between Chaos and Order to get to the Heart of the Clear Breathing Flow.

      The complexities Really Become Apparent when falling through the Rabbit Hole of Top Tier Business Architectures already in place as the parents conforming your simple ideas into a less filtered mud puddle.

      I Admire how u both collaboratively move through the Core Issues with asking one another the Right Questions to Arriving at Root Solutions of Simplicity.

      Receiving a Transparent Peek into this Process Is Priceless for each one of Us.

      “Every Day Simple & Truly Incredible Innovative Illuminations Come {ReadUp’s} Way With Ease.”

      🪔🗽

      Redemptive Read. Salve for the Soul. Incredible!

      Like Reading an Incredible Pixar or Anime Film prior to Viewing the (inevitable?) translation.

      Once I saw the words Paper Tiger at the beginning I Immediately Imagined The Impact of Reading the rest Soundtracked to Beck’s Sea Change album - I can vouch the two as a Marriage Made in Magical Origami Heaven.

      As I was reading I also thought of The Lonesome Bodybuilder by Yukiko Motoya - a collection of short stories that took me places I had no idea prose could take me.

      This Is Enriching

      Deeply Admire these words from a Respectable Human Being and his ability to look back with Self-Awareness of his imperfections as a Leader. It Is High Time We Begin viewing political parties in 3D, 4D, even 5D - like a Rubik’s Cube where We each bring a Color to the Table. Our True-True Power Is, simultaneously, non-conformist pixels and United Illumination Outside from Within these distinct complexities. Common Ground Will Be Found once We each dig to the Core of our individual disintegration, death and re-birth. True-True Government By the People and For the People Will Be So Far Beyond two party lines. The Scale of Liberty Will Balance Most Dynamically from the Fire of the Green Heart 💚 In Between the two polarities a too many are lost mentally within these days.

      That is just the way I see it.

      When we homogenize and corporatize human emotions on any side of the spectrum it is unhealthy and imbalanced. Authentic expression is key.

      During September and October I was experiencing an unusual depth of anger and depression expression that was neither physically self-harming nor physically harming to others (though I was psychologically harming myself yet self-aware through the whole ordeal). My housemate could have reacted from only the positive thinking mindset or from a place of fear based on the verbal expressions I was letting out in my living space. He did neither. He remained Present To Talk when I Needed to Process and Most Impotantly he allowed me the Space to Express Everything that needed to come out of me. In the aftermath he and his partner were concerned about me and Love me and Hated witnessing me like that. Yet they Allowed me Knowing/Trusting I would not harm myself or others.

      In hindsight I Am So Incredibly Grateful for the Allowance of the Yin Expressions. I See Clarity Now more on the Other Side of All of the discomfort and dis-ease. I Needed that to Clear Blockages and to Transcend old wounds. I Am Soooo Much Better and In a Space of Greater Healing Perspectives after coming through that phase without pat answers or forced direction of thought.

      The series You’re The Worst comes to mind as well (though I have not viewed it in a while). There is a season where they handled Depression Really, Really Well.

      This Album opens with the lines of a potentially Wonderful Novel, imho:

      “There ain't a black mark on top of my house I've got a rainbow, it's in my mouth I was born to the freest wind Take what was torn, I learned how to mend...”

      Shape & Destroy is my Personal #1 of 2020. Hands Down. I have listened to it More Than Any Other this year. Healing Medicine; Pure Medicine.

      I have reached out to his manager to see if we could arrange a Conversation between the two of us and have considered if it could premiere Here. Haven’t heard back...yet.

      (Matt Berninger, Doves, Sea Wolf, Ketch Harbour Wolves, Sufjan Stevens & Fiona Apple all right behind amongst many other albums listened this year.)

      I Am reminded of this Incredible Series today. IMHO, both this series and Rectify are 2 of the Most Zen Therapuetic television experiences. I would actually give this an A+++++. It is the antithesis to all the loud and fast on tv. It is a Glorious Tortoise with Quiet, High Vibration Revelations. If a viewer wanted to many of these eps are Built around such Sacred Silence that u could fall asleep to them. I Have. Favorite episodes: Parallel, Home, Enemies, Stasis & EchoSphere. If u Don’t Watch much tv and would prefer something akin to a Slow Build Novel; this Is Ur Cup of cozy SciFi Apotho-Care-Ric Wellness Medicine.

      I am a Fully Recovered Southern Baptist so religion makes me skittish. I really have to Focus to not immediately shift into fear and judgement around any fanatic whom starts spouting Jesus. His teachings are about Heart Actions (as Is All the Great Faith & Love Teachers) over baseless talk. Has taken years to get the cobwebs out of my mind. With that said, the Simplicity he found in the Message and longed to Share Is Admirable as the Explicably Simple & Inexplicably Profound Are simultaneously the Key to both Faith & Faithlessness.

      Omg, that prayer though...so Joyously Sexual and if We All Experienced Faith & Love from such Explosively, Sexually Liberating & Revelatory Orgasms Our Universe would Cum Together in Deepest Union.

      Also, San Diego... never been...I look forward to visiting; perhaps a chapter of living one day.

      I can’t help but Imagine the trajectory of Leonard’s Life if he had remained True to the Musically Creative Chapter of his life back East...the guitar and music chapter.

      Rich Read.

      The following stood out, personally:

      It’s hard to imagine Gorey rejoicing in the gay “community solidarity” signaled by a fondness for Firbank. A nonjoiner if ever there was one, Gorey distanced himself from those, like the “very militant” museum curator he knew in later years, who insisted that their queerness was central to their identity. “I realize that homosexuality is a serious problem for anyone who is—but then, of course, heterosexuality is a serious problem for anyone who is, too,” he said. “And being a man is a serious problem and being a woman is, too. Lots of things are problems.”

      Midnight Gospel is A+++++. The final ep of season one is 👌

      I am in a state of purging films and tv. In fact just moments ago I Vision Boarded limiting them. With that said and in a similar vein I Am Too Close to the end of Mr. Robot not to finish it, as well.

      While MG is even more extreme in its format I would also shift the chaotic narrative of Mr Robot towards the same end of the scale.

      In Bold Letters on Vision Board I put Microdose Everything. MG is an Excellent Microdose.

      “Remember, if there isn’t an experiment that can theoretically disprove it, then it is not science.”

      Experimentation Is Key To Unlocking Unknowns and Innovations.

      This article brings to mind the Indie film, Spring, by filmmakers Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson. Specifically, the main characters’ brief discussion in the church about science and how what may seem like magic/myth fantasy in one era may eventually be proven as grounded reality in later ones.
