When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess,
acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.

Did you know?

Lao Tzu didn't even exist... the "author" of Tao Te Ching was just a name made up by the various Masters whose words and teachings got compiled into the book over hundreds, probably thousands of years... The Book of the Way even led to Taoism, which you could call a religion, but tradition is more accurately what you would call Radical Rituals like Taoism and Buddhism.

"The Tao is like a well:
used but never used up.
It is like the eternal void:
filled with infinite possibilities.

It is hidden but always present.
I don't know who gave birth to it.
It is older than God."
-Nothing @ All

That's the thing, it doesn't really matter who said or wrote something, it's how it makes you feel... does it make your mind hum?

But there are also animals that don’t eat their placentas, including us, humans. Just because some behavior provides benefits in a non-human animal doesn’t mean it will be good for humans. And as far as human science goes, there’s nothing proving that eating placenta will provide any medical benefit.

He has stolen light from the gods. In his entrails he feels the pain, always beginning again, always fresh, gathering from evening to evening, when the vulture steals to him as it would steal to its nest. And you feel that we are all like Prometheus because of desire, but there is neither vulture nor gods.

-Queens are females that were fed more as larvae. They are larger than workers and lay all the eggs in a colony – up to millions in some species! Queens initially have wings and fly to find a mate(s), but they tear them off before starting a new colony. A queen can live for decades under the right conditions.
-Workers are females that were fed less as larvae. They do not reproduce, but perform other jobs, such as taking care of the brood, building and cleaning the nest, and gathering food. Workers are wingless and typically survive for several months.
-Males have wings and fly to mate with queens. They live for only a few weeks and never help with the chores of the colony.

In sum, the results of our experiments, discussed in Section 6, indicate that either one of the two features apparent in historical societal collapses – over-exploitation of natural resources and strong economic stratification – can independently result in a complete collapse. Given economic stratification, collapse is very difficult to avoid and requires major policy changes, including major reductions in inequality and population growth rates. Even in the absence of economic stratification, collapse can still occur if depletion per capita is too high. However, collapse can be avoided and population can reach equilibrium if the per capita rate of depletion of nature is reduced to a sustainable level, and if resources are distributed in a reasonably equitable fashion.

Charles Manson wrote:You see, from my point of view, I had to go through all these things to get a point of view. And then from my point of view I have an epiphany, and to me it’s new and it’s real and I understand it, somewhat. And it’s leading me to other thoughts that go in similar directions.

My phobia is running out of air. My phobia is being welded in a barrel upside down, or my phobia is a plastic bag over my head, or just not having enough to breathe. Because that’s a terrible feeling to be… that’s really, you know, that’s the worst. I think to wake somebody up, it would be good just to take your air for a few seconds, show them how frustrating that really gets.

The will of the air is really dominant, but it hasn’t got to people’s mind yet. They get in their car and they hear on the news, well the bumble bees are all dying. They don’t give a fuck about no bumble bees – they got payments to make, they got problems, they got things that are more important than bumble bees, you dig?

Now, we got nobody to stand up for the bees. So there’s nobody helping the bees, so we need a few hundred motorcycles dressed up like bees, that understand what air means, and what running out of air means. Put them on the highway, saying you know, like, let’s cut this down. You know, if they won’t cut it down one way, we’ll help them cut it down another way, for the love of the atmosphere that we breathe.

If people don’t have any love for themselves, that’s on them. But we have love for the bees, I have love for the bees. My love for the bees, Sandy’s a little bee. You know, I love that little bee, man. But not just for it’s honey, I love that little bee for itself. Because it has a self too, it has a life, and it loves it’s life, and it deserves it’s life. It works hard. It does good for the will of God.

The will of God is what we’re dealing with, we’re not dealing with man’s will – we already know man’s will is destroying everything. We’re dealing with the air we’re breathing, soldier, it’s the air that we breathe.

The Marine Drill Sergeant, it comes out of service, gets up on the train. He’s got a straight razor in his pocket, and he’s gonna get on a box car and ride around, and clean up the air. Because he’s got other people coming that are right behind him, ‘cause they’re falling out of the thing that ain’t working. And all the things that ain’t working are gonna come here with the chickens, sweetheart.

My little red chicken, in Warwood mountaintop, over there with pigs and slop, over there in tip top and be-bop, over there in Florida’s gang, over there with Castro and the Navy’s man. Everywhere I got, I got a ship in the sea. That’s the way I’m doing it pirate – the pirates are George Washington’s Navy.

George Washington’s Navy is the Sons of Liberty. Truth. Semper Fi, there’s no doubt, breathe in and breathe out. Attention! Breathe in and breathe out. There’s no confusion, nothing to think about. Air is God
