Take some Precautions Hazard approaching.


This from a Blog I read regularly.

Banks are teetering on the edge some sensible precautions are in order. Keep some liquid resources Cash at hand dried food candles fire wood that sort of thing
handy if there is a widespread problem it will take a few weeks for other means of exchange and distribution to kick in.

Don't panic and if any financial organisation is in a position to vote or dispose of any of your savings or assets under discretion delegated to them or through fraud probably best just to get the paperwork changed.

The real big problems for the Banks kick in in the first quarter end the system will likely start creaking ahead of then. We are entering a period of adjustment when what is real is becoming apparent and the fantasy nonsense narrative of debt based money pedaled over the past 40 years that was not corrected in 2008 when if politics had been for the people it  would have been and should have been.

Anyway my honest assessment is that it is sufficiently worrying to take some small precautions it is a world wide problem

If the banks do not trust each other and they do not why should we trust them ?

I am optimistic for the future long end of 2012 into 2013 but first half of 2012 could get rough Iran China North Korea Pakistan Afghanistan particularly Iran and presently Syria are all being subjected to NAtO and israeli war crimes similar to those committed in Libya and Iraq before . If there is not reform in American British and EU state political and corporate systems of governence there will be war and probably Civil war / revolution.

If we use the internet and our family and business Networks to assert our collective democratic will the criminals in charge by default presently should be brought to justice.

Anyway I would be dishonest not to share my honest and sincere concerns here so there you have it.

I'm more than happy to provide any number of sources and what not upon which I base my assessments they are not politically motivated I am a committed anarchist and have no political leanings what so ever a plague on all their houses my only concern is for the welfare of my Neighbor and his neighbors and their neighbors neighbor as it is in nature so it should be in politics.

Modes of Thought

There are 7 whole notes in the western musical scale and Major is minor.
Modes its Where you Start
Harmony is where you finish
Melody is how you feel about it
Rythym is Praxis
Enharmonic is a signpost to Plurality but its called according to which direction you approach it from.

I just listened to a Lecture on Goethe and Kant and truth and freedom(1) I think Robert Johnson may well have seen the Boris Karlov silent movie of Faust. I also watched the Wizard of Oz with my Kids last night, the Scarecrow wasn't tuning Guitars at the Crossroads and the Wizard gave him a diploma but really said its within ourselves an Inherent intuition Kant called it a priori knowledge.

A few Goethe Quotes

We know accurately only when we know little, with knowledge doubt increases.

The effects of good music are not just because it's new; on the contrary music strikes us more the more familiar we are with it.

All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green.
 read my own post and remembered this really funny link i looked at posted at the acmebargig beta testing bulletin board.

Its called the Contempory composers bullshit generator and is very funny

The Contemporary Classical Composer's Bullshit Generator

My most personal mechanism always features strongly in any of my quartal compositions. I was first introduced to the concept of 'eclecticly-Stockhausenesque orchestration-illusions' last year, and it has allowed me a greater depth of installations, especially whilst developing the ultimate mechanism. My goal, in essence, is to layer musical recordings. My latest composition explores the boundaries between sounds and conflicts, whilst utilising a highly apparent attitude to a traditional, periodic sculpture. I am very much influenced by the idea of contextualising theoretical intricacies, particularly whilst combined with a highly tonal approach to meanings. The fact that tessituras tend to (at least in their repetitive state), textually compose, even in the presence of a strong material, is, you will agree, patently absurd.

 It took me a long time to develop my ear a balance of both is a way to Work Smart and learn smart use whats there but aim for this ( one of the best lessons on You tube this)

My other 3 favourite lessons Ever.

Eureka Moment this one for me. Plurality is an amazing concept and not only in Music

Chord construction learn how they work not what they are Intervals ( ear training is the key to understanding Intervals its like a Chef testing for seasoning)

Finally Pitch Access


Bill Edwards Fret Board Logic and Michael Lydon Six Swinginbg Strings and Ralph Denyer Guitar Hand Book and the guitar for dummies Series.

Two of the greats of You Tube Justin Sanderscoe and Andrew Wasson.

Whatever works for you but Cotton wool in the ears isn't likely to assist at least at the beginning. Beethoven only went deaf later.

If you can afford to spend a little time with a Teacher then great if not seek out someone further down the line than you and steal their Licks ( people have been doing that longer than the record industry has existed

And Robben Ford on What are the essentials

I watched this video regarding the basics on Robin Fords Guitar Dojo site the other day
and thought it was pretty good. Harmony Rhythm melody but mostly Rhythm. With Rhythm on your side you can busk to anything.

Happy Christmas

Its been a year of discovery for me I continued a journey of thought and learning which started in Sweden 3 years ago now when I had been revolted by one of the Millibands referring to someone questioning the Global Warming Narrative as a denier. For me this moment sums up what is wrong with our modern politics the questions of ordinary people are seen as inconvenient and heretical just by dint of existing.

Anyway I plan to write before the New year or in the run up to New years eve in more depth of what I  plan to do next year with my discoveries and my Still optimistic outlook that a better world can be designed and made for all our Children and neighbors so with that message of hope and love Happy Christmas one and all from this small Tribe of Swedish Vikings.

And for those I haven not heard from but think of often.

Time perception comparative experience Pavlovs Dog.

Steve it is as you say not for everyone witness the Fire Bird x furore to see how true that is.

What is amazing with the Line 6 Variax's is that all the processing is done on the instrument and it is plug and play like a regular guitar Acoustic or electric the only trick needed for the acoustic modelling is an acoustic Amp ( High Range acoustic amps )

Heres Rolands offering always a good starting point.

Being in a room with a beautiful Acoustic and no amplification is a completely different experience I would go as far to say that that becomes a spirtiual commune between Player instrument and listener in a way that intervening amplification can't enhance outside of the live situation signals are going to be running through conducting material either as electronic currents or digital streams once into the signaling realm there really is no difference anymore.

The time factor is greatly reduced with the Variax guitars although workbench is maybe getting into time consuming territory, the deep programming and other technology in setting eq and so forth is a curve that exists for all and comes down to how much time we can spend on it both playing and the production skills in Sound Vision content and so forth. I was discussing with Johanna yesterday how we base our views upon our own comparative experience and those learned from other sources of information we trust sometimes unwisely.

Heres a link to a 1 hour and 15 minutes documentary I watched the other day which touches on the idea the psychological responses displayed by Pavlovs dog are played upon more than any of us really care to acknowledge I think some of the reading I haver been doing on Standard Concert pitch
Is really quite alarming in how small everyday things can effect out natural equilibrium.

This link comes from a totally unrelated subject but apart from Guitars and Sound Modelling which I spend probably half of my time on the other half of my time I spend as a Monetary reform Activist this next link is a longish article with an even longer discussion regarding the economic system and its present troubles part of those troubles is actually routed in some of the false beliefs we adopt as a pavlovian response to expected rewardThe Gibson Guitar forum is an insignificant small caricature of this social dynamic. Part of what I really enjoy about the club here and our ongoing guitar party is that we are interested in each others music and guitars but beyond that the ideas and feelings communicated through the music which we produce. ... ks-legally

The UK Government has received a European Commission ultimatum to hand over £20 million within two months or face legal action. The wrangle is over the fact that import tariffs on frozen garlic from outside the EU are lower than the rates for fresh garlic. And, according to the Commission, UK authorities carelessly levied the lower rate applicable to frozen garlic on imports of the fresh product from China, in breach of EU customs rules.

A Commission statement explained: "Between 2005 and 2006, the UK customs authorities allowed imports of fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China under wrong authorising documents. They have erroneously stated that the goods imported were frozen garlic for which significantly lower import duties apply.

Econosophy and other musings - Post a Comment

Another of the 21st Century Pamphlateers. Reading the comments Toby who writes Econosophy and other musings recounts talking to Parents of his daughter about the Leisure economy and Guaranteed Income I would call it something like the Social Dividend or Commons Dividend and it could be Spun as Churchills Net across the Abyss that no one is free to fall below. Anyway raising these questions on hbow things are done is so much like the Empreors New clothes Follow the link for a translation of the original.

So off went the Emperor in procession under his splendid canopy. Everyone in the streets and the windows said, "Oh, how fine are the Emperor's new clothes! Don't they fit him to perfection? And see his long train!" Nobody would confess that he couldn't see anything, for that would prove him either unfit for his position, or a fool. No costume the Emperor had worn before was ever such a complete success.

"But he hasn't got anything on," a little child said.

"Did you ever hear such innocent prattle?" said its father. And one person whispered to another what the child had said, "He hasn't anything on. A child says he hasn't anything on."

"But he hasn't got anything on!" the whole town cried out at last.

The Emperor shivered, for he suspected they were right. But he thought, "This procession has got to go on." So he walked more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn't there at all.

We are like that little Child speaking truth to the Grown ups Toby. This is a nice translation of the story we all so often recall. I for one have not read it even to my Children, I shall put that right at Bed time tonight.

Blogging The New Free Press, 21st Century Pamphleteers.

Blogging as a free press has a wonderful double meaning . One it doesn't cost anything other than the infrastructure of a computer and web connection ( we should none of us take that for granted ) ; Two the full connotations of free speech and freedom of choice.

By reading Blogs and participating in comments discussions there is almost an 18th century Cafe society of Artists, Artisans, Activists all actors in a spreading of views regarding the Human condition.  This exchange of ideas and reading can inform us and help us to grow awareness across the spectrum of so many subjects.

I read a number of blogs and often visit the blogs of participants in discussions in the comments sections . I highly recommend in Wikipedia always taking time to read the discussion pages which show where editing is negotiated for the main article , the little icons of BIAS or Controversy are usually clues to a wonderful discussion in the most part regarding unsettled knowledge.

Always there are Pedants for Grammar, Punctuation or the Orthodox view seeking Dead Tree Author confirmation of the views expressed. But what is a Publishers editor and commissioning director other than an establishment censor by another name, just enough to keep the best stuff under wraps and then theres the constant battle of Gagging orders, an example where one can ruin it for all , I.E the News of The World or other main stream practices gagging what should really be said

Anyway as a reader of the Human Condition as represented in cyberspace one Blog that I always look forward to is Guido's Temple of the Absurd. I have read widely on the subject on which Guido is a master
Debt Based Fiat Money. Take a Look and decide for yourself we should listen to the modern day Thomas Paines they are the 21st Century Pamphleteers and as Blake said of Thomas Paine, The Author of Common  Sense.

Blake believed that Paine’s “Energetic Genius” led him to perform miracles: “Is it a greater miracle to feed five thousand men with five loaves than to overthrow all the armies of Europe with a small pamphlet?”

 • Anyone interested in a good grounding in the whys and wherefores of Debt Based Fiat Money and its historical machinations check out Guido's Blog.

There is more to money than just the bits of paper in your pocket. Money and the monetary system are upstream of all and any human dynamics bar none. The choice of monetary system is a choice between liberty and enslavement and indoctrination.

A bon entendeur, salut!

* If the American people (or any other people) ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation, and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power of money should be taken from banks and restored to Congress and the people to whom it belongs. I sincerely believe that the banking institutions having the issuing power of money are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies.
(Thomas Jefferson)

The cell doors along the prison corridor of those to be guillotined were chalked the night before, but Paine’s door was not yet closed. Swung open against the wall, in the dim light it was chalked on the wrong side. When closed at the end of the evening it displayed the unchalked side the following morning, when the executioners came calling. The angel of death had passed him by.

His first articles written in Philadelphia were on India, the focus for British imperialism, and against slavery. Britain has, he stated, done little but “rip up the bowels of whole countries for what she could get;—like Alexander she has made war her sport, and inflicted misery for prodigality’s sake. The blood of India is not yet repaid, nor the wretchedness of Africa yet requited. Of late she has enlarged her list of national cruelties by her butcherly destruction of the Caribbs of St. Vincent’s.” The reduction of India was “an extermination of mankind,” and England’s “cruelties in the East-Indies will never, never be forgotten....”

the least fracture now will be like a name engraved with the point of a pin on the tender rind of a young oak; the wound will enlarge with the tree, and posterity read it in full grown characters.” 
By conducting experiments using saucepans and soup bowls to extract from the soils of the stable, barn, and cellar, a treasure could be collected which “to a free people [is] more valuable than the mines of Peru or Mexico,” namely potassium nitrate

While in London in 1758 Paine had bought a pair of globes, one terrestrial, the other celestial. He took lessons on their use from the Scottish astronomer and mechanic James Ferguson. Paine’s six months at sea had contributed to his knowledge of the stars. He knew the difference between the rotation of the earth and the revolution of the earth, and never wrote far from his globes, or far from their science.

in his 1772 The Case of the Officers of Excise: “The rich, in ease and affluence, may think I have drawn an unnatural portrait, but could they descend to the cold regions of want, the circle of polar poverty, they would find their opinions changing with the climate.” In Crisis No. 5 (March 21, 1778) he writes: “Had it not been for America there had been no such thing as freedom left throughout the whole universe.” 

My country is the world, and my religion is to do good”

the FBI ordered the removal from public libraries of Howard Fast’s influential wartime biographical novel, Citizen Tom Paine, as well as his one-volume selection of Paine’s Works.

During this aggressive formation of capitalist laissez-faire, William Ogilvie in Essay on the Right of Property in Land (1781) argued that the commons and wastes should be distributed to the poor, while James Murray’s Sermons to Asses (1768) renewed the redistribution theory of jubilee, and Richard Price’s Observations on Reversionary Payments (1771) opposed enclosure.

Blake believed that Paine’s “Energetic Genius” led him to perform miracles: “Is it a greater miracle to feed five thousand men with five loaves than to overthrow all the armies of Europe with a small pamphlet?”

 Cornwallis instigated the “Great Gleaning Case” of 1788, in which the court in Steel v. Houghton (Mary Houghton, an agricultural laborer, gleaned on his lands in Timworth, a few miles south of Thetford) declared unequivocally against the law of Moses and centuries of customary practice by declaring that “no person has, at common law, a right to glean in the harvest field.” It was such criminalizing of customary access to the means of production and subsistence that played a decisive role in the creation of the proletariat.

Were that pillar to sink into the earth, the same landed property would continue, and the same ploughing, sowing, and reaping would go on. The aristocracy are not the farmers who work the land, and raise the produce, but are the mere consumers of the rent; and when compared to the active world are the drones, a seraglio of males, who neither collected the honey nor form the hive, but exist only for lazy enjoyment.

4 lines of Greek text; Ephesians 6: 12> Blake.

There was still no money about. People seemed to live without it. They also lived without the Church. I’m sorry about this but it is true ... The holy time was the harvest. “Tell me your harvest bargain,” the farmer said to the harvesters. So the men chose a harvest lord who told the farmer how much they wanted to get the harvest in ... We reaped by hand. You could count thirty mowers in the same field, each followed by his partner, who did the sheaving ... The lord sat atop of the last load to leave the field and then the women and children came to glean the stubble ... we all went shouting home. Shouting in the empty fields—I don’t know why. But that’s what we did. We’d shout so loud that the boys in the next village would shout back.
Blake, some two centuries before, had heard something similar and in 1797 added an instrumental arrangement
They took [the sheaves] into the wide barns with loud rejoicings & triumph

John Thelwall compared the “gigantic mind of Thomas Paine” to Licinius and Gracchus, authors of the agrarian law of ancient Rome. In Agrarian Justice, Paine develops the argument that “all individuals have legitimate birthrights in a certain species of property.” Here is where he distinguishes natural from artificial property, personal property from capital. Paine asks us to consider the Indians of North America, because among them “those spectacles of human misery which poverty and want present to our eyes in all the towns and streets in Europe” do not exist. Poverty, he deduces, is man-made, created by civilization. Paine relies on his own empirical encounters with American Indians. In 1777 he led a diplomatic delegation to Easton, Pennsylvania, to meet with scores of members of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy led by Chief Last Night. The earth is “the common property of the human race,” he writes. Its cultivation without indemnification has created poverty and wretchedness. The landed interest took the property of the dispossessed, partly by “the agrarian law of the sword.”

Uncivilization,” as he called it, produced such atrocities. “When, in countries that are called civilized, we see age going to the workhouse and youth to the gallows, something must be wrong in the system of government.” He finds that the number of poor people actually increases with the advance of so-called civilization; they are becoming “an hereditary race.”
