Slip Sliding on up out of The Behavioral Sink.

It hasn’t been a walk in the park, living in this world, these past eight years or so. Since the Bush Crime Family and whoever is running them, or whomever they are running, slithered into the highest office in the most powerful nation on Earth it has been a time of grayscale existence. It’s been dark. I don’t want to spend a lot of time talking about this. Talking about it is nearly as depressing as the fact that it happened in the first place.

Maybe you’ve had a good time these past years, I haven’t. Sure... I haven’t starved. I haven’t been sent to Guantanamo. I haven’t... never mind. I don’t want to get into it now. I need to find some good in things. I need to believe in a better world and try to come up with something to say that will leave people more hopeful. It isn’t easy but it isn’t impossible. I get so angry sometimes when I see what should be obvious to everyone. I become angrier still when I see that it isn’t obvious to everyone. I want to find a way out of this bad dream and it would make me very grateful if others could find their way out too.

While The Sleaze Ball in Chief and his merry band of animal rape artistes have been gangbanging the world in the hope that they can reproduce Damian from The Omen by the sheer number of their forced violations, some few lights have refused to go to sleep in the submissive darkness of the times in which we live.

While The Pope, who used to be the guy who was in charge of covering up all of the pedophile scandals, tours the U.S. in his pimpmobile and waves at the crowds of clueless Schmoos, some people just went about their business behind the scenes and did some remarkable things that nobody seems interested in.

Sometimes I feel like every blow that lands on the legs and hands and feet of the people of Zimbabwe is landing on me somehow. That no one has just marched into that country and hung Robert Mugabe on Pay per View tells me all I need to know about the world and shows me that maybe we are just bacteria. That Israel has no qualms about going into Zimbabwe and messing with the election with the same calculating profit motive that they used to support and maintain South Africa’s apartheid regime makes me think that the bugs from Starship Troopers won the battle and then just dressed up in human clothes and we finally started calling ourselves humans while we went on acting like psychopathic flesh eating bugs. Maybe we are just pond scum whose natural disposition is to eat and breed and kill. And then along comes a guy like Dean Kamen.

Most people don’t know who Dean Kamen is, even though he is everything all of the rest of us ought to be. I struggle to find the nobility of the human spirit. I struggle to find it in myself and to see it in others and it is not any easy task. It’s the easiest thing to see it in Dean Kamen though hardly anyone bothers to look. The first time I heard about him was when he invented the AutoSyringe then I heard about The iBOT then I heard about The Segway and finally there is The Slingshot There’s a Wikipedia page of stats on Dean one of the great human beings of our time and this is what he gets. There are no trumpets. He should be brought forth upon the cosmic Lupercal and crowned with as many laurel wreaths as he could stand up under. He should be feted and wined and dined and given his own day of the year and a key to the Seven Cities of Gold. He gets what amounts to a chamber orchestra of kazoos. His latest invention hardly got any mention at all.

You might wonder why I used Wikipedia several times when some of you know I despise Wikipedia. I did it so you could see how little time they devote to Dean Kamen and his wonderful, wonderful work. Someone once put up a Wikipedia page on me and sooner or later Wikipedia decided I wasn’t important and I’m not; neither is Wikipedia. Dean Kamen is important. One Dean Kamen is worth ten million Jimmy Wales and you can’t make book on number equivalent comparisons to trolls like Bush or any of his capos because one of them is too much.

If you bothered to read about the Slingshot then you can see that Dean Kamen has solved one of the biggest problems facing the bug culture in the human suits. I expect that there probably isn’t anything Dean Kamen can’t solve when it comes to technological necessity. I will never in my life achieve anything close to what Dean Kamen has done but that’s no big deal. What is a big deal is that almost no one will and yet we celebrate all the rank pretenders. Hey, it’s okay to peel off and go find out what Paris Hilton is doing. Go ahead... we’ve all got our priorities.

In a decent world they would make turf fertilizer out of the Robert Mugabe’s and Paris Hilton’s of the world so that Dean Kamen could walk across it while we throw flowers and money and beautiful women at him. He’s my idea of a rock star. He has made the world a better place. And hardly anyone has said anything about his latest and greatest invention. He’s one of the truly great men to ever come down on “this sweet swinging sphere.” (To quote Lord Buckley) and we just don’t care. Has Dean Kamen received the Nobel Prize? They gave it to Henry Kissinger so it’s probably not worth shit but still...

They gave it to Al Gore for talking up Global Warming so that the bio-fuels industry could starve half the world to death so it’s probably not worth shit but still....

There are a lot of little minds out there that don’t think Dean deserves the award it makes me wonder what awards are for anyway.

I didn’t feel so good when I started writing this. I know some heavy things are about to hit and there’s nowhere on my couch or under my house where I can get any respite from the gravity of it but Dean Kamen makes me feel good. I haven’t talked about the other things he has done. I wonder how many people will care to find out.

Today someone told me that Michael Rivero was an agent for MI-6. I guess it is because of his Hawaiian ancestry. I’ve had people tell me bad things about everyone I have ever heard about. I figure even I, without knowing, am probably a CIA agent and was involved in 9/11. What am I supposed to do with all this negative information? How am I supposed to rise up above the clouds that circle this Earth with all the paranoia on one hand and all the packaged crap on the other? Dean Kamen is a piece of evidence that providence has not deserted us.

Bush can rage like the impotent jackass that he truly is. Government terror cells can terrorize the people. British court evidence on 7/7 can reveal the same 9/11 passport- phony ID’s strewn around the wreckage in the ongoing seven come eleven crap game of these endangered times. Hell can walk the Earth in a spandex glitter suit so that our dreams can be consumed in whether to be the hole or fill the hole but Dean Kamen keeps on chugging.

There are other Dean Kamen’s laboring in their laboratories in search of one more answer to keep us going one more day. There are hearts burning and sprits yearning and deep in the center of our being is an urge for freedom and understanding; a helping hand extended for no other reason but the desire to help one another and make the world a better place. That’s what I want to think about today. What I want to think about is those noble, often unknown and unsung portions of ourselves that are not bugs... they are human beings. Dean Kamen... you rock my world. For all of us that do give a damn; thank you! Thank you as much for your selfless drive; your restless energy to create and your magnanimous heart as much as for the things you have done to ease the pain and sorrow of this troubled world.

You are an amazing phenomenen you rock my world you really say the things that I am thinking about now this is no cliche you really do.
Mugabe is on record saying he is a Jesuit man he says he has been loyal to them he was taught at school by them at Kutama college in Zimbabwe a Jesuit stronghold they let him travel to pope John Paul's funeral when there was a travel restriction worldwide on him and yes he sat right next to Prince Charles during the ceremony and they both were chatting happily away when he got back to Zimbabwe he wsa cracking up parliament by telling them that they had been talking about girls all this is documented nothing is made up I thank you for giving me an avaenue to express it as I had been carrying this around for some time with people not understanding the nature of the beast.So you have the Jesuit connection, the Vatican, Israel,London the former occupier no wonder Zimbabwe is going nowhere soon and people they just dont get it Les.
I was reading about Dean on your website God bless him God bless you Visible.
Nothing is ever what it seems if only we dumb humans could try and understand that we would see everything for what it is.
Thank you,

Pure water for everyone...even from the Ocean. How novel, how world saving, how boring to present 'man'.

"We are not human, we are subhuman." - Carlo Suares

"We are caterpillar contemplating pupatia." - Shpongle

Dean Kamen is the Christ archetype operating in the flesh, ie the fire of genius serving to elucidate, illuminate this hovel of a cave we inhabit. One day it will be illuminated...we will see it for what it is.

Then we will leave it...once we get past the foisted door of tyranny, ie the shell of the seed. A new world awaits.

Here are some other Dean Kamens...

Robert J Moon -

Wilhelm Reich -

Royal Raymond Rife -

Nikola Tesla - (this one is tongue in cheek)

Thomas Townsend Brown -

Karl Reichenbach - (Jaw dropping, mouth shutting...take your pick)

Viktor Schauberger -

John Kanzius (dig up ghost of Albert Abram) -

Ernst Graffenberg -

Point kills new or radical ideas so more money can be made off the established, accepted, statist, entrenched ideas. Dead ideas lead to dead people. Zombie in, Zombie out. Sub-human is western civilization lying for two thousand years in the literal tomb of universal archetype...go figure.

That last bio-reference would make a whole lot of people more sane, more relaxed and way more understanding of the feast of St. Carpocrates or the agape love go and love your brother. Birth control, meal, religion, beauty and beast, bees and flowers all rolled into one.

Apolygamist (or any form of gamy) = visit to DC and NY to shore up the tomb

Polygamist = visit from CPS to send you to tomb

You Bastard. That made me cry. You just seem to know where the levers are. This is a beautiful reading experience. You know, one day people are going to be saying the same things about you that you said about Dean Kamen. I don't think you have any idea do you?

In this world, that seems designed to crush any and all idealism, with the realization that humans are the most degredous form of life on the planet, there come the rare individuals. People that give hope to life, like a few good golf shots give hope of shooting par one day. People that by just being who they are, and doing what they do make life on this ball of crap we call earth better. Dean Kamen is one of these. It is still a mystery to me how people can be so good, and human kind can be so bad. As a race of beings in the galactic community, we probabaly deserve the extinction we are bringing on ourselves, but people like Mr. Kamen, and the author of this article by the way, make me sad for it's comming. These are the kind of people that make me hope, against my better judgment, for a V for vendetta charater, that can cut through the smoke screen put up by the powers that be, and slap humanity in the face so hard with the truth that they actually get it, and actually amass at the parlament building. I really don't know it that will EVER happen, but if it does, I will be on the front line. Until then I will hold Mr. Kamen, and those like him, close in my heart.

Jody Paulson said...

Thanks for the informative post, Les. I'd heard of the Segway, but I didn't know anything about Kamen's other inventions. There are American heros out there -- they're just being ignored. People like Brad Will, Adam Shapiro, and Rachel Corrie are exemplars around the world that save our image from being totally in the toilet. But hardly anyone in this country knows who the first two are. You have to look for them, but there really are wonderful shining lights out there that can inspire us to be better than what we are.

There is a huge problem with drinking pure distilled water - it drains the body of its minerals:

"During nearly 19 years of clinical practice I have had the opportunity to observe the health effects of drinking different types of water. Most of you would agree that drinking unfiltered tap water could be hazardous to your health because of things like parasites, chlorine, fluoride and dioxins.

Many health fanatics, however, are often surprised to hear me say that drinking distilled water on a regular, daily basis is potentially dangerous."

Dr. Joseph Mercola: Early Death Comes From Drinking Distilled Water

"Although it is controversial I am firmly convinced that distilled water is harmful to your health.

One of the major foundational reasons is that distilled water is highly acidic. Most of us are far too acidic already and the last thing we need to be drinking is a fluid that will make us even more acidic.

Distilled water is alleged to be beneficial due to its lack of contaminants. Well, many of the devices that distill water are made of metal and will actually add certain toxic metals like nickel back to the water, which actually worsens health.

Since distilled water is like a vacuum without any minerals, it will actually leach beneficial minerals from your body to balance it out. While this maybe beneficial for a short period during some sort of detoxification regimen, this is usually highly counter productive in the long run."

Dr. Joseph Mercola: Finally, Physical Proof that Distilled Water is Inferior

"There is a correlation between the consumption of soft water (purified water is extremely soft) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Cells, tissues and organs do not like to be dipped in acid and will do anything to buffer this acidity including the removal of minerals from the skeleton and the manufacture of bicarbonate in the blood. The longer one drinks purified water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state. I have done well over 3000 mineral evaluations using a combination of blood, urine and hair tests in my practice. Almost without exception, people who consume purified water exclusively, eventually develop multiple mineral deficiencies. Those who supplement their purified water intake with trace minerals are not as deficient but still not as adequately nourished in minerals as their non-purified water drinking counterparts even after several years of mineral supplementation."

Ha haa ha! I loved that.

We also got the fancy title "Pod People". And an inordinate amount of time was spent rubbishing us. The MI6 bit was supposed to be a joke. Oh. Never mind.

If some of you haven't looked, the information here
is actually indisputable and scientifically watertight!! But no, we live on a different planet ... in 911 circles we are science fiction freaks.

Hey, visible, cheer up -- shit floats. At least it's obvious to some of us ...

Peace be with you Les.

I have never heard of Dean Kamen, now I know who he is. I also now know who Noam Schomsky is :-)

We are now living in the time period that can be labeled as "The silence before the storm". For those who are aware of the impending storm, it is a time of preparation. In order to survive the coming chaos, we need to come out of this world. By this I mean that we, the living, should let go of the world, so that we are no longer controlled by the world.

One of the symptoms of involvement with the world is to be reactive. Reaction stems from resentment, and resentment is suppressed anger. Anger has it's source in idolatry. When we experience anger, we need to establish what it is that which brings out the anger in us.

The anger in us, is like a cancer, it is destructive. Once we have identified the cause, we are able to let go. When we are free from being reactive, we are prepared to cope with whatever happens.

The campaign ads of whatever whore candidate cheer me up when i'm down, always good for a laugh. It's also fun to laugh at braindead sheep who support and believe in a failed system so absolutely. Giving monkeys brains was a bad idea. Divine comedy i guess too bad the jokes are over our heads

I love the depth of understanding you reveal to me.
I look forward to reading up more about Dean.
Are you going to fill us in about the popes visit - I could not believe a religious leader posing with the shrub.
But I guess the whole charade has become very translucent now.
Essentially I don't believe anything I read.
Hopefully one day soon the need to read anything will have left me but until then you will be at the top of my bookmark.
And then again when you say go within to that space where the outer can have no effect is what inspires me.
Despite the darkness that will engulf us, ensure that we know how to switch on our eternal, internal lights.
The dream is collapsing at a rapid rate.
Is it likely that I am going to get to the source if I keep following this trail of bastards and the damage they are creating.
All it does is create anger which once again diminishes the tiny ember of presence which only exists in the absence of my monkey mind.
I don't want to awaken in the dream I want to awaken from it.
Is this possible?

I was pleased to see that Terence McKenna has some currency here.

Someone mentioned that Terence was wrong, and that he should have believed that people are conspiring to take over the world.

He was not wrong. He did believe that. He said so. And then he went on to savage it with the comedy of the Eschaton.

The Eschaton is in charge.

Groups of people are definitely conspiring to take control, he said, but this only proves that they don`t have control.

In any event, the corporation to which I belong is in charge of assigning people to their various end-of-the-world and afterlife fantasies.

You can be my master in this life, if you want, but you should treat me well, or it will not go well with you when we are no longer bound by the rules of consensual reality.

We`re just allowing the children to dominate consensual reality right now the way you let screaming babies make you their bottle/ tit-wielding slave.

A determination will be made as to who gets to move up to second grade, and who has to stay back and read Dick and Jane again.

Don`t take "life" so seriously.

Death is the true Land of the Imagination.

And in my Imagination, my corporation got the contract from the Eschaton to organize the afterlife.

If you don`t feel very happy about what`s going on, you should probably take your imagination more seriously.

Well, one more Terence chestnut, then.

He said, "The best Story wins."

I say, everyone is 100% right, too. But my Story is better than any other Story I`ve ever heard before, and it allows everyone to have their own Story.

That`s my opinion.

But Terence still stands: "The best Story wins."

So shake your Imagination, and don`t forget that Death ("the informational black hole") is whatever you imagine it to be!!

("No it`s not." "Yes it is.")

Unless you disempower your imagination.

But I took Terence`s advice, and I didn`t do that.

Thanks Terence.

And thanks, Les, for hanging in there.

"So shake your Imagination, and don`t forget that Death ("the informational black hole") is whatever you imagine it to be!!" -- Anonymous

"You would know the secret of death.
But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.
Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?
Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance." -- Kahlil Gibran

I'm afraid this device will never see the light of day.

In 1977
Tom Ogle
invented a device that was going to revolutionize the auto industry by eliminating the carburetor and replacing it with a black box (his invention), getting 100 miles per gallon driving his 1970 Ford Galaxy on a test run.

It made international news, but unfortunately due to legal troubles as a result of his invention, he went into hiding, afraid for his life. Ogle was found dead in 1981 due to a drug and alcohol overdose, at least that was the final conclusion. A great many people, including myself, think he was assassinated.

Imagine driving around getting 100 MPG. No gasoline shortages, no billions of dollars in profit for the oil industry, no dependence on oil from the Middle East and more importantly, no war for oil.

Do you think the powers that be wanted it that way back then, the same applies to now. Nobody gets it easy. Only the ultra rich get it easy.

When I first saw Dean with his device was on the Colbert Report. That's when I first feared for him.

God Bless Dean and geniuses like him that are trying to make the world a better place to live.

Gosh, what is a gal or guy to do? The populace of lame ducks out there claiming ignorance or fear as they justify their sucking the very life out of anyone or anything just to get their next endorphin fix (a perfect example ‘my sister and her husband in Dallas’.)

Who in their right mind would dare to even think of saving a planet infested with such trash! I do not buy it; there is NO pass for this breed! There is but a hand full of people out there ’free world’ that are truly worth the energy to contemplate a second thought ‘tis why our maker allows the tragedy to continue, am sure this ultimate being is pretty grossed out too!’

The posters on this site are obviously above the rest on certain levels. Take this- fire those synapse; shoot to kill and hold not to the view but the target! I do not like suffering and do not condone such, hell, if it is going down, make it as short and sweet as possible and move on…

The Netherlands gets it’s water via ocean desalination and is old concept ‘google it’…clean water is a no brainer but those in control could not give a rats arse…Finance is even simpler to maintain ‘without death and chaos’ but same summation, those who rule this planet on the human plane are not into stability for that is against the nature of their evil…

If my name or works were acknowledged in a historical fashion 'according to the scum who rule…' well, I would bear nothing but shame! To think it would only take a measly comet to slam this planet and it all starts over…I ask, where is the love! Seek and you will find…for what the perpetual wheel a taste of relief just to stay hungry for more. I am in 'NOT'

Side bar...Queen of England, you are no longer beneficiary to the Maes Trust (10Trill...) thus as long as any assets of your ownership are co mingled with this Trust, you are bankrupt “listen/read carefully International community ‘Russia, China, Asia ME…’

And as long as my Son's and I have to endure the evil axis in our lives 'you have so eloquently placed...' well, go find another chump for your cash machine...those funds go to Russia in order to and only to deface this God forsaken planet of the Zionist regime NWO tripe! Your NWO sucks get a brain! Keep lickin Bush et al arses and see what that gets ya! Scharf et al, when or if the Crown takes you and yours out “MI5 and MI6 are wimps (how does that Mossad arse taste…good aye)” will I only reconsider my will!

Sorry bloggers, I told you the battle has begun. If you want to win a battle you had better go after the source!!!

Again I say Thank You.

Whilst I will agree that most of the commenters here are above the average, and I'm thankful for it. Some however are not so much.

For instance to quote someone like Mercola on the topic of distilled water is just plain silly. While long term drinking of distilled water may not be the best Idea, minerals and trace elements can and should be added for long terms use. This is not an insurmountable problem.
Also when given the option of drinking sewage , ditch water or distilled I think that the choice is obvious. This is not rocket Science. When one considers the fact that the vast majority of the world is in desperate need of CLEAN water, and that a full eighty percent of Disease could be eliminated by the use of CLEAN WATER I think that Deans Idea is one that should have been addressed a long time ago.

However drilling for Oil and polluting the Biosphere with gas guzzling SUV’s is of course much more profitable as is war, and therefore should receive our unfettered attention.(insert eye roll here).

From what I have been able to ascertain Dean spent somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000.00 to hand tool out the prototype, the cost of which he expects to bring down to somewhere around from one to two thousand dollars per unit. This for a device designed to provide around 1000 liters of potable water per day to not ten or a hundred or even a thousand but to millions of people that have none. One such unit could supply water for entire village for a cost of say $2,000.

Compare this with the 35 billion dollar projected development price tag of the US’s new F-35 lightning fighter jet that is only designed to kill and bring profit to the ruling elite. How many of these water purification devices could have been built for the research costs of this one killing machine alone? Not to mention the production costs of each and every plane. Think about it, then take out your pencil and paper and do the numbers. It truly is to weep.

I'm not surprised at the accusation, and not because of his ancestry. is a great source for pertinent news links, but that's all. Rivero's commentary along with the article links is disturbing, and not at all in keeping with the view that you espouse.

As I see it, he (an avowed republican) espouses a "softer, gentler" form of imperialism, rather than refuting the principle outright.
