This blog-site is the last chance saloon of the human species. Convinced of our imperfection, we are divided and destructive, seemingly doomed. The alternative to imperfection is perfection, and obolworld investigates its nature and practicability. correspond by email to: email@example.com
Dear Stephen Unwin,
The story of our species to date is best regarded as a prolonged residence in hell on earth. Caught up in our own predicament, we have struggled to "conquer" the planet , indeed if possible the cosmos. and make it serve us. There have been exceptions to this norm, but increasingly as we learnt more and more, we have idolised ourselves. Seemingly masters of our destiny, responsible for our own fortune, we now wallow in awe-inspiring pyramids of power and money. Many if not most of us wish it were otherwise, but despair of an alternative, and are engrossed in making the best of our particular situations while we can. Doom is prophesied on all sides, and generally feared, however much denied. We no longer trust our leaders: hypocrites, seeking their own success.
Experiencing the wonder of the passing scene, whatever it is, however terrible or delightful from our personal point of view: this is the ever-changing face of our divinity, contemplate it, in the knowledge it is a construct of sub-atomic particles and energies. It is evidently not geared to the well-being of every human : to suggest that is human-centric, hubristic. To believe it is our job to meddle with it in order to make it more accomodating to us - a total misunderstanding. Our species has learnt the secrets of IT's structure by meddling self-centredly. Now we change. What IS is right because it IS. This is how it IS at each and every point of time and space, and it should be wondrous in our eyes: the very idea that understanding and appreciation of THIS can exist within it, in our heads and hearts - that is amazing. And it is possible. What is more, when we discover this wonder and acceptance in us, then we behave in a way that improves our situation - especially when we all do it, so that we are not in conflict with IT, but an appreciative part. When we as a species discover this truth, then in harmony with one another and with the cosmos, we cope with the passing natural phenomena of global warming etc far far better than seems at all likely to most people as I type - Doing what comes selflessly, living in the moment intelligently but without care for past and future , is the key to our future, a sapient paradise.
Following the legendary example of jesus of nazareth, in whose tradition i was brought up, i say now in all simplicity : we ourselves and all the material objects we cherish will crumble to dust before my words are forgotten. They lay the foundation of the coming mature stage of our species on this planet, the fulfilment of prophesy, a period of peace and wisdom. What geographical extent this coming age has remains to be seen : at present our species is behaving as a cancer on the body of life on earth. A sapient paradise will however occur perfectly logically, at exactly the right moment, as all who live after will understand. Be not attached to your trivial selves, but to the wonder of the whole!
Dawkins is a militant atheist, with a book just published; this is my reply It attempts to show the true point of "religion": a different "Way" of life, perhaps only generally possible now that science has discovered how our cosmos and planet are constructed. Hugh

Like it or not, my mind runs on...as ever, but we don't now meet to exchange chat. I presume that that separation, like all else, is part of the pattern leading to the needed culmination.
Yes, your pessimism incites my good cheer - as always - maybe its justification?!

release people everywhere to cooperate in solving problems in a non-coercive and promising frame. that's what obolworld offers. "what a nutter !
the gate of NO COERCION, so long the stern aspect of the entrance to obolworld, transforms as one passes through in to the MARRIAGE OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, a sort of Versailles or Kew Gardens, delighting in its ever-cordial arrangements. and there is the bus-stop for joining the PAGEANT ASPHODEL , the vehicle for the triumph of love over fear for generations to come.
the guardian offers 50% profits any agency/individual with info on hugh sacker (obol) . charter flight booked from california to investigate claims of human genius in ireland - solution to all our woes
how then would we integrate as a group , hugh ? - just like any other group, groups integrate pleasingly in obolworld where the guidelines pll lg ic are observed. every one likes meetings we see ourselves in others one amazing re-conciliation
it's the integration
inhabited now by an association of good souls
the realisation strikes one dumb,
incarnating our highest possible meaning
this is the biggest story of all time - so big you cannot deal with it

yes. most everyone, including neighbours, "prefer to keep their distance" ' but you are the one to put it into words. And most everyone has something else to do. thus the paradigms appear and self-incapsulate. as ever hugh/obol

involves experiencing his accusers' hell of evil and then seeing it as his redemption in a light he had barely known could shine transfiguring on his sad shrine of soul believed long dead
natasha granted freedom from public notice for life....may only be noticied publicly on occasion after prior consultation access to media of course as anyone else. edict of obol i should appreciate reporting offenders to me personally....hugh strictly non-coercively of course....
Alison.Sedgwick@guardian.co.uk, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
make no mistake, my call is for r e v e r e n c e for natasha, not exploitation for money....she is so far superior to our normal, her choosing to live amongst us is a privilege for us, let us rejoice to welcome her to any home to tell us how she sees us now she's out. as my daughter as any other daughter of mine daughters sisters mothers i demand men show you every respect and affection, untainted by lechery, the equivalent of incest in our universal and universally chaste family. sex-games are for adolescents, no one else, and never exploited.. the deadly sins are deadly and were killing you, you now know.
you must know
yes, i am master of the world, but only by offering and embodying a non-coercive, rational, humane and transcendental solution - the only one possible, perfectly adjusted to our exact position today. a perfect fit

"I've always had the inverse quote to Godard : film lies 24 times a second" he (De Palma) says, "And anybody that's used to using moving images like a film director, when we see stuff on TV, it's all positioning and public relations, there's not an ounce of truth to any of it I always look behing the image and say , "why are we seeing children with flies on their eyes this week?" Those images are always out there. Like the war in Iraq. If you think Americans are ignorant, it's because we're not seeing anything. We're constantly being manipulated by images (( a n d w o r d s ~obol)). They're lying to us all the time. We have no idea what we're doing".
know it's absurd, but it's not me that's absurd, and no gallant would attribute it to you....it's the juxtaposition....the very extreme unlikelihood and exact rightness of it....a time of paradox like no other
a mature human being
my son gives me no peace.....and now his boyhood idol - and my son is infinitely loyal, why else would he still be here? - is reported living with family in wicklow. and please stephen so wants just simply to be with them for a day or so....and i so want to welcome michael to my home, and let our 2 families meet in pure human affection and without commitment except to purity of intent and act. no past no future the now the sacred moment the actors in the now michael will understand
