WE ARE STILL MONKEYS (part 2)



Yesterday I watched a documentary about the discovery, underwater of a very antique ship that contains instruments that had to be sent to a lab in London, to be scientifically analyzed to be sure that what the members of the underwater archeological team had found in a Greek vessel deep underwater – were right or wrong in their guesses.
Well, it turns out that the London researchers couldn’t understand how such very modern and accurate navigation instruments could have be imagined to be useful (especially for navigation) but be constructed too…….it turns out that people in those times people could use bronze and lead pretty much in the same way we have been using steel, aluminum and fiberglass in the past couple of centuries.
I said to myself: “Boy! What an interesting way start a research that can help me get involved with something both interesting and exciting today!!.”
In fact, I still remember well that when I was in high school (Liceo for me) I was “diseased” with the study of the ancient Greeks, but not just because of its philosophers …… (who created philosophy that we still study and use today, two thousand years later) But – I just learned that we knew that our planet is round 1.400 years before Columbus took his trip to the west to find the country that today is named after another Italian …A.Vespucci.
All I can say is that to my (injured) brain with its intelligence, culture and knowledge in history looks like not only keeps repeating itself but that as time goes by, our ability to think and imagine is much worse when compared to that of the people who lived 2.000 to 5.000 years ago…..not to mention our closest predecessors, the Neanderthal who lived just 250.000 years ago (my injured brain is unable to conceive such length of time).
After having spent a fair number of hours reading material available to all I can say that we – as a civilization - with all our technology, science and ability to modify for our own benefit everything we see and touch around ourselves, have developed in circles…….I’m sure that this will be obvious from the Youtubes and links posted here.

WE ALL ARE (STILL) MONKEYS!!



Humans did not evolve from monkeys. Instead, monkeys and humans share a common ancestor from which both evolved around 25 million years ago. This evolutionary relationship is supported both by the fossil record and DNA analysis. Oct 4, 2011

Ferns first appear in the fossil record about 360 million years ago in the late Devonian period.
 All modern humans share a common ancestor who lived around 200,000 years ago in Africa. Comparisons between known skin pigmentation genes in chimpanzees and modern Africans show that dark skin evolved along with the loss of body hair about 1.2 million years ago and that this common ancestor had dark skin
ver since the discovery of the Neanderthal fossils, expert opinion has been divided as to whether Neanderthals should be considered a separate species (Homo neanderthalensis) or a subspecies (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) relative to modern humans.
Humans first appeared in the fossil record around 66 million years ago, soon after the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event that eliminated about three-quarters of plant and animal species on Earth, including most dinosaurs.
he earliest humans developed out of australopithecine ancestors after about 3 million years ago, most likely in Eastern Africa, most likely in the area of the Kenyan Rift Valley, where the oldest known stone tools were found.
The history of religion refers to the written record of human religious experiences and ideas. This period of religious history begins with the invention of writing about 5,200 years ago (3200 BCE). The prehistory of religion involves the study of religious beliefs that existed prior to the advent of written records.
Sometimes called the official religion of ancient Persia, Zoroastrianism is one of the world's oldest surviving religions, with teachings older than Buddhism, older than Judaism, and far older than Christianity or Islam. Zoroastrianism is thought to have arisen “in the late second millennium B.C.E.
Religious instincts. Religious instinct has been theorized by some scholars as a part of human nature - support for such a position being found in the fact that (as Talcott Parsons put it) “there is no known human society without something which modern social scientists would classify as religion”.
The Rig Veda of ancient Hinduism is estimated to have been composed between 1700–1100 BCE, which not only denotes it as one of the oldest known religious texts, but also one of the oldest written religious text which is still actively used in religious practice to this day, though no actual evidence of this text exists ..

Mind & soul




As I’m deeply studying the concept of our consciousness, how we are all part of the Universal one and how – after we die – our consciousness re-joins the universal one, I stumbled upon the ideas of mind and soul (that Iacopo refuses it to be existent at all).
This is actually the very reason that drove me to spend few days into the study of this matter (even if related to very complex - for me -ideas such dualism and what someone such as Descartes elaborated on).
However I was lucky to find a Youtube that explains the mind in a good way:



In fact this helps me very much into attacking this subject otherwise complicated since the seventeenth (XVII) century, many philosophers and scientists were involved in the debate over this “simple” question: “What is the definition of the human mind and the human brain?”
One of the explanations for the mind is that: the mind is used to refer to the individual's thought process of reason and consciousness. ... Soul is the spiritual nature of man while mind is man's faculty of thinking and reasoning. 2. The soul is considered as the essence of man while the mind is in charge of man's consciousness and thought, while the "soul or spirit" is that part of us that enables us to be aware of ourselves. In other words it’s the essence of life, eternal and its substance lies outside the physical parameters of the Universe. Moreover, when in place in any physical body, it connects directly to and is our consciousness.



In short we have 'minds'. Typically humans are characterized as having both a mind (non-physical) and body/brain (physical). ... Dualism is the view that the mind and body both exist as separate entities. Descartes argues that there is a two-way interaction between mental and physical substances.
Very shortly we can say that brain and mind are not the same. ... Your mind is part of the invisible, transcendent world of thought, feeling, attitude, belief and imagination. The brain is the physical organ most associated with mind and consciousness, but the mind is not confined to the brain. The mind is the manifestations of thought, perception, emotion, determination, memory and imagination that take place within the brain. Mind is often used to refer especially to the thought processes of reason.
Now, after having read and studied way more than I need on this matter, I’ve decided (probably incorrectly) that the mind is what’s been called since the beginning of time (at least since Aristoteles) as soul.
I do realize that – given the wealth of websites dedicated to this matters – I have maybe too many Youtubes in this post, BUT I found so many great – and directly to my point – that’s been impossible to choose the ones to publish here and those to avoid, however please do spend some time to click on the links at the bottom they are truly the result of a pretty extensive research and choice.

NON AVETE LE PALLE!!!




This is another small explanation of Italian culture and bi-millenarian culture (WOW it’s the 2019 already!!) when you hear a true Italian - born in Italy like me – (not in the USA) saying to someone else “mi hai rotto le palle – or coglioni” – in English: you broke my balls or testicles what this person is referring to is someone’s testicles (a male…..obviously) that are traditionally thought to be the testosterone producer glands in men’s  and ….very importantly give courage, resistance to physical pain and a set of extremely refined (often from birth) combative skills to take care of himself and what he cares about, I need to add to this that any man with palle/coglioni, can easily and  immediately “sniff” men who haven’t any  (often from birth) I must say that this exactly what I believe of 2 men who have been braking my balls while stealing as much money as they can from me lately and try to force me to do or say something that without any balls they cannot in any way, shape or form will ever have the balls to come here to tell me in my angry face…………as a matter of fact my/human body has lost one ball (surgically removed due to a tumor....and here again NOTHING CAN KILL ME) but the one left because of my furious anger has taken over what he lost one was doing and since my anger has…..if anything……got surely worse my one remaining testicle fills up the ball-sack to the point that the skin of it is even stretched now, so I can say that my surviving testicle is about the size of a volleyball.
What makes this situation worrisome is that the only way to relax it to its “original size” is to confront in person those two losers without balls…..or balls the size of a peanut.
Maybe I’ll check once they’ll be on the floor……..after my “testosterone power-treatment

MY DEATH BY CONSERVATORSHIP



I had published here on 6/18/2017 (WOW 2 years ago!) a post by the title “IMPRISONED AND ROBBED BY PROFESSIONAL CONSERVATORS, link here:

http://lingiaca.blogspot.com/2017/06/imprisoned-and-robbed-by-professional.html

 but since in these past 2 years!  I’m still under to “infinite powers” of conservators who’ll NEVER impress me in any way whatsoever (the current one was a former heretic Lutheran priest who decided that to stay married to God didn’t give all he was hoping for, he made the decision to marry a woman who evidently thought it to be OK to have children with a real priest in a vest).
However, having more than too much time available to build my “sand-castles” I realized that conservators too are victims of conservatorship laws, I mean my current one – coming from priesthood – convinced himself that he can help and support very old people who have Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's or senile dementia who were abandoned by their families (I wonder who said that this is me already??).
In fact I (very) recently did read that here in California, these conservatorship laws are very much misunderstood, therefore applied by a vast number of high court judges around the State, who – not only never received such test directly - but in addition can’t understand what assessments say, so they just read their “condensed version”, or the final recap.
In some way I therefore don’t feel too good for the people who made the decision to spend the few hours it may take to receive the conservator’s license, I do strongly believe that this license is wanted out of desperation (in the case of a  woman often because divorced, if a man it can only be out of complete lack of any specific education and/or interest)
But let me add few words now to talk about someone who’s in hell already, while living here on earth, I refer to my High court judge who – in all fairness – I can’t say that she looks like a cow……- surely all the cows in the world would be very offended and may stop to produce milk J
The only one reason that makes me refer to a  her, rather than a him is only because of the two mammary glands (they look like they weigh at least 60 pounds each) on her chest and the name she has.
Talk about brain injury…… she’s the one whose brain is evidently badly injured, as all my readers know I’m a true lover of prime rib and filet, and I can only say that IF that judge would ever be butchered, absolutely nothing could be kept to feed anyone/anything…..what a waste!!
Aside from this total waste, to have such a judge working in a superior court of the USA offends the entire American judiciary system, I’m sure it takes away from Arnold entire nights of sleep.
But let me ask to our next major of this beautiful town (a true Angel J) why that judge shall maintain her too powerful and very dangerous job (surely very well paid too).
Now, what makes somehow more self-confident than usual (can any of the people who know me personally think this might be possible?) is simply that IF anything will happen either to me or to my PC with its internet access, this entire town and plenty people from SFO to L.A. would immediately know the “doers/perpetrators” of any and all disadvantages I may be subjected to (add the fact that ANY PC in the world with internet connection can be used to publish all I want). Wait and see in a future post I'll be talking about the people who spent years and very much money to become the attorneys (Jeff and Maria) of conservators like the ones who "conserved" me (Mark and Stephanie), ......talk about a HUGE waste of time and money.......you become an attorney to "protect "legalized thieves"to receive as payment the smallest fraction of what conservators can steal from disabled conservatees/real people.
B.T.W. never forget that freedom of speech is a constitutionally protected right in the US of A.

FALLEN SOLDIER



This morning – as I always do, I signed into my A. Prime account looking for a movie to watch and I found the one that titles this post…….guess what? It’s about a young American boxer who goes to England to fight a true champion in the mid-lightweight category and he receives so many punches to his head that he gets knocked out, goes into a coma due to his brain conditions for the TBI he got (way worse than mine), so I decided to make a post about what this movie meant to me,  it took me half a day to find and select the Youtube videos you see in this post, mainly because I wanted to show this man several years after his recovery still totally blind with only 80% of his hearing.
Ho my god!! Talk about someone in dear need of some a conservator! BUT since he’s surrounded by the love of his family (his sister in particular), supporters and friends, his life is completely free from any conservator (the losers!!) and through former fans’ donations his family is able to pay for all of his meds and special therapies he’s in need to receive. I admit that I fell in love with one of the opening statements in this movie/documentary that I personalized like this:
The road less travelled is the path of a warrior, I was born blessed with superior intelligence and great athletic abilities, and i.e. I was in Rome in 1982 with a group of swimmers to be chosen to participate to the European swim championships.
BUT, in the early afternoon of October 12th 2005 I was struck by a minor (without his driver’s license) as he was parking his father's jeep while I was riding my highly accessorized street bicycle, which resulted in my TBI followed by 2 months long in a coma during which my family – my wife and my 2 children whom I love so much that the day I came out of the coma I said that I had made “an agreement” (with Jesus Christ??) to return to living earth, no matter that I was warned in advance that “it’s going to be painful” for my unmeasurable love for my 2 children.
Anyway, I’m sure that nobody can even think of the millions of YouTube videos that come out if you put in the search bat “fallen soldier” they are ALL about our soldier’s bodies returned to the USA for their proper burial and rejoining with the families (you try and see….) Among the dozens of videos I watched to find these ones, former presidents of the past either sent personal handwritten letters (Lincoln) to the families of the fallen heroes,  or went to the arrival of their bodies already inside coffins at the airports or naval ports with the families, shaking hands and giving words of support to the family members of the fallen soldiers (Obama, Clinton and Bush).
Bottom line: I truly am a "fallen soldier" and was born to be a fighter and no one can take that away from me!
