Reality Falsified.

Reality is à slice of infinity,
Make sure you try a piece.
Plenty to go around
Add seasoning to taste Incompleteness Uncertainty Falsifiability Theoretically Abstract constructs Incompleteness and uncertainty
Are in the nature of infinity
Falsifiability is in the nature of reality
Subjects of defined limits create reality One can create or falsify ones own reality
Reality as objective,subjective or abstract
Is all an absract construct relative to subjective limits placed on the infinite continuum. There are many realities, but Only one infinity
Infinity encompasses all realities
Realities are faceted With infinite perspectives
Perscribed reality is not necessarily evident

GDP Notes Cut and Paste Green/Maryland GDP Paradox and link

GDP Critisisms.
Growth and interest on debt are functions of the same support system of the debt based money model and the obsession with and simplification top GDP growth models all help to obvisctae the real potential in our economies.  GDP is a very poor metric by which to set socio economic policy goals, it is essential to maintaining the dysfunctional staus quo.

2.1. Principles of proper accounting
The use and calculation of the GDP indicator is inconsistent with two principles of good bookkeeping: (i) divide clearly
between costs and benefits; and (ii) correct for changes in stocks and supplies. GDP really represents an estimate of the costs
instead of the benefits of all market-related economic activities in a country. In addition, GDP does not capture all social costs
as it omits external costs.
It is well-known that the GDP indicator was never developed for the purpose of …

Postcards from a journey to the unknown.

I started writing this blog when I realised that I was locked into a series of events which I would be subject to the results of, but over which I would neither be consulted or considered. The realisation was actually quite comforting but I knew I needed an outlet for my inevitable struggles with self reproachment and regret and guilt and all of the other feelings I knew would come either from within or provoked from without. This Blog represented a purchase mentally for my ticket for the ride , a journey I was determined to understand, enjoy and share some postcards with myself and others who might be interested having realised they too may be taking the same train.

As with all postcards some are written a little more thoughtfully others are scribbles just checking in or marking out places to revisit and spend some more time all of them represent though a snapshot of the view from that point in space and time.

Anyhow grab your interail card, and climb aboard the index of the blog li…

Rain Song Performance

Enjoying Final Cut pro X very much so much so I decided to spice up this performance of Rain Song. The Michael Sanden Film required me to step up to FInal Cut from I Movie, a step I couldn't justify the learning curve before to Final Cut pro 7. I still have a way to go before I can use Pro 7 with anything approaching an efficient workflow but on Pro x I have taken to it like a duck to water and it is massively more powerful than I movie. I still intend to stay the course on Pro 7 as I enjoy video editing and want to improve my film editing and Pro 7 has some particularly good Audio features which for obvious reasons I would like to utilise..

This performance seems to be making a modest hit ( a soar away success by my own standards). Subscribe like share and spread the love. The Sanden documentary Series is long but I think interesting to people thinking of building their own acoustic guitar The shorter movie edit will come in due course when the winter sees me with more studio ti…

´´It is a truism of the Renaissance workshop that paintings were collaborative, and that work ´by´a certain artist was often only partly painted by him, the rest being done by assistants and apprentices working under his supervision. Sometimes there were contracts that restricted the amount of delegation´´.

In August of this year I travelled to Komstad, in the Osterlund peninsular in South East Sweden to attrend the Sanden Guitars building course. The course was a 50th Birthday present from my Family, Johanna my partner and our two child…

Free Sweden from the Neo Liberal Scourge of the Washington Consensus


I will be voting today, hopefully Sweden will be freed of the scourge of the Neo Liberal experiment that has damaged its public services this past 8 years. The Greens will be getting my vote and one hopes that they with the Centre Left and Left Party can form a coalition to help Sweden negotiate the current unrest and coming economic downturn in the world. After the first two terms of Thatchers Government in the 1992 Elelction Neil Kinnock was set to remove the tories, Famously John Major won that election for the Conservatives and the Neo Liberal plague became incurable in British Politiics, New Labour was born and when Blair got in in 97 he was really jjust Tory Light with a special interest in War Crimes. I fear if the Centre Left, Left and Green coalition do not get in this time round in Sweden, Swedes will find that all their parties will be coopted into the Neo Liberal lie and find increasingly that One Kroner One vote becomes a reality…

I have lived here for 4 and a half years now and love it here
I will be applying for Swedish Citizenship in due course I have renounced my British citizenship. My Sone is 4, 5 later this month he attends a Dagis ( playschool) 3 mmornings a week, it is free of charge and the facilities excellent. All schools and Child care places here in Sweden have fully equipped Kitchens and subsidised and in the case of Nurseries Free hot meals and Snacks ( Ficka ) are served. My partner is a teacher and this provison is very important for many Children where for instance an alcoholic single parent is not providing regular meals at home. AT the Dagis the Children are also having an election next week, they are voting for what is on the menu next week at one lunch time there are 3 choices. 1. A health Bean dish with Coca Cola, 2. Pizza with Water 3. Chocalate cake with milk. It isn't pplitical but the idea is that in all things where one makes choices there are rough and smoothe aspects. To me tha…
