Harvesttime Soma Revisited

VFW "Buddy" Poppies of Afghanistan 2013 
Offering poppies began in 1922 as a way to create awareness and raise funds for charitable programs, primarily focusing on disabled veterans and widows and orphans of those who fought and died.
Today the poppies are made by disabled veterans in Veterans Administration hospitals across the country.

The Irony of Drug Wars never sleep in the poppy fields of Afghanistan. day they will give a war and no one will come.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies grow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hads we throw
The torch; be yours to hld it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though the poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

“Sometime they’ll give a war and nobody will come.”

In Carl Sandburg’s 1936 epic poem The People, Yes
Sandburg portrayed a little girl who, while watching her first military parade, observes,
"Sometime they’ll give a war and nobody will come."
Charlotte Keyes -
During the anti-war protests of the 1960s this pre-war oberservation became one of America’s best-known anti-war slogans.
In 1961 Scientific American editor James R. Newman wrote a letter to the Washington Post in which he misremembered Sandburg’s line as "Suppose they gave a war and no one came?"

In 1966 Charlotte E. Keyes wrote an article for McCall’s magazine about her war protester son Gene, using Newman’s misrecollection of Sandburg’s line as its title.

This title soon showed up on a bumper sticker that was held up by news anchor David Brinkley on his NBC newscast.
After that broadcast, the meme caught fire, with little awareness of its origins.

Hollywood rides the wave with The 1970 movie, Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came? starring Brian Keith and Tony Curtis.

"What if someone gave a war & Nobody came?
Life would ring the bells of Ecstasy and Forever be Itself again."
~ Allen Ginsberg 1972

Welcome 2013

Good night dear 2012, may history be so ever true to you.

An Anonymous Poem,

tagged underneath a Newtown bridge serving as a memorial for the EVEnt that took place on the grounds of Sandy Hook Elementary School the morning of December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut.

"We have everything;

And we have nothing;

Small and unstable;

We self destruct;

We are sleeping sheep;

And there are wolves among us,"

Message from the Kogi revisited

Light Camera Action

A look beyond the point-of-view of the lens.

While reading these words upon your screen you are super-consciously, consciously, and sub-consciously remote viewing.

Dear reader, you are the scryer who gazes into the shimmering water of mirroring light, this multi-pixelled, hi-def, l.c.d. monitor set before you, an unfolding intimate illusionary perception of your reality.

Everyone is a remote viewier in its most basic concept of the lens and your inate ability to focus super-consciously, consciously, and sub-consciously in unison.

As you observe these words, you are experientially creating dimensional - time - space - ego:

A Unified Act
of self seeing self seeing
self of seing self seeing
self seeing of self seeing
self seeing self of seeing
~ infinitum ~

Caveat lector
What has been shown to me from Elder Brother is that I have lost my way. To see as Elder Brother sees, I must rely on shimmering mirrors of light to clearly focus on the perceptions of my reality.

What you do or not do with what you see here is your own reality, for the eyes are the doorway to the soul.

From the beginning in Colombia

everything, everything remained as it


among us,

the native people;

the same belief, the same mask,

the same dance.

Everything well organised, in order,

A terrace for every animal.

Younger brother was permitted in

other places,

other countries.

There was a dividing line, the sea.

He said, ‘Younger Brother that side,

Elder Brother this side.

You cannot cross it.’

Because this Colombia was the heart of

The world,

Of the whole universe.

But Younger Brother came from

another country

and immediately saw gold

and immediately began to rob.

There were golden images,

golden oracles.

The Mama prophesied with golden


he had a golden tuma,

he had everything

and Younger Brother took it all to

another country.

Now the Mama grows sad,

he feels weak.

He says that the earth is decaying.

The earth is losing its strength

Because they have taken away much



many minerals.

A human being has much liquid inside.

If the liquid dries up we fall with


This same thing can happen to the


Weakness makes you fall,


So the earth catches diseases of all


The animals die.

The trees dry up.

People fall ill.

Many illnesses will appear

And there will be no cure for them


Because the Younger Brother is among us,

Younger Brother is violating

The basic foundation of the world’s law

A total violation.



Building highways,

Extracting petrol,


We tell you,

We the people of this place,




that is the violation

So the Mamas say,

please BBC

no one else should come here,

no more ransacking

because the earth wants to collapse,

the earth grows weak,

we must protect it,

we must respect it,

because he does not respect the earth,

because he does not respect it.’

Younger Brother thinks,

Yes! Here I am! I know much about

the universe!

But this knowing is learning to destroy

the world,

to destroy everything,

all humanity.

The earth feels, they take out petrol, it

feels pain there.

So the earth sends out sickness.

There will be many medicines,


but in the end the drugs will not be of

any use.

The Mamas say that this tale must be


by the Younger Brother.

"warfighter enhancement program" ~ revisited

a new program designed to dull the moral sensibilities of American soldiers in combat-
magic pills to chase away the horrors of war
the neuro/genetic re-engineering of soldiers' minds and bodies
to create what the Pentagon calls "iron bodied and iron willed personnel":
tireless, relentless, remorseless, unstoppable.
the "Psychological Kevlar Act,"
aimed at reducing the alarming spread of soldier suicides and post-traumatic stress disorder
heavily dosing soldiers with Propranalol, which, "if taken immediately following a traumatic event, can subdue a victim's stress response and so soften his or her perception of the memory,"
no difference between offering injured soldiers penicillin to prevent an infection
and giving a drug that prevents them from suffering from a posttraumatic stress injury for the rest of their lives.
Council on Bioethics, object to propranolol's use on the grounds that
‘it medicates away one's conscience…’
Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Barry Romo, a national coordinator-
"That's the devil pill," "That's the monster pill, the anti-morality pill.
That's the pill that can make men and women do anything and think they can get away with it.
Even if it doesn't work,
what's scary is that a young soldier could believe 'it' will."
