Do You Believe In Magic?

Bending metal with the power of your brain is a paranormal phenomena that people have forgotten about, as over time these abilities were lost to humans.  The power of the human brain is infinite, and bending a spoon with the power of your brain is called psychokinesis or telekinesis, which seems impossible to most people, but it can be done.  However it requires a lot of training and concentration, and because our brain has the capacity to be receptive to what we want to learn, we can influence numerous objects.  There are lots of charlatans, illusionists and magicians that bend spoons using trickery, but that is totally different.

Softening the metal in spoons enough so they can easily bent without using physical force is based on techniques utilizing energy and quantum mechanics.  Concentration allows them to become miraculously malleable so they can be easily bent. There are only two known elements in the whole universe, those being energy and matter.  Albert Einstein came up with the equation E=MC2, which showed the world that matter is energy, and these findings were quickly verified by the scientific community.  Every material that appears to be solid is actually made up mostly of empty space.  Items feel solid because of an electric force makes the electrons dance in specific patterns, as atoms keep their electrons outside the nucleus.  Electrons move in set patterns and although objects are made up mostly of space atoms can get extremely close to each other.

Spoon bending is a vibrational reality that can be learned, which relies on a power controlled by your mind and that has no limits.  If you are able to harness this energy then you should be able to harmoniously interact with the energy of the universe that is present in all human beings, and since positive energy breeds more positive energy, thoughts are able to create movement.  Your thoughts can make you sick, or accelerate healing and they can reprogram your reality.  The original source of thoughts is generally unknown, arising seemingly out of nowhere, they are without substance until we concentrate. They are an invisible force that shapes what we believe and do.  We can allow our brain’s energy stream to flow, but when we attach ourselves to a thought, it becomes our own, and it can often possess us even though we try to control its direction. What is the definition of being human beyond our thoughts and ideas?  The depth of our brain power is inexplicable and invisible, its essence is something that we cannot feel, see or touch.

When you bend a spoon with the power of your mind, you’re simply concentrating energy to affect the energy molecules in the metal.  It’s really quite simple once you understand the principle.  It can be done, as everyone has the power and ability to mentally bend metal.  Once you are ready to activate the energy in your hands and see the energy that is surrounding them, then it is time to focus your attention on the spoon bending.  It is simply mind over matter, which is achieved by directing your will to act on the elementary atoms thus allowing your mind to move or bend an object.

Relax your mind, take several deep breaths and let go of all of the stress.  Close your eyes and do two or three minutes of very deep breathing, as you are mentally relaxing your body.  You need to find your place of peace, where all is well in the world and there are no pressures from the outside world.  Enter your happy place which might be the mountains, the beach, the first time you fell in love, whatever.  This needs to be a peak emotional experience, one that would resemble the goose bumps you got during your first kiss, or the wrenching feeling in your stomach that you have just before a giving speech.

It is best to begin with a lighter-weight piece of flatware.  Go into this altered state while you are sitting in a comfortable chair holding the spoon in your dominant hand.  Your other hand should lie on your lap, palm up, to create an open-energy circuit.  When you arrive at your place of peace, hold the stem of the spoon (near the bowl) with your thumb and index finger.  Now rub the metal between your thumb and finger.  Use the power of your mind and imagine that the metal is getting warmer.  Keep concentrating on staying in your place of peace.  Don’t worry about whether or not the spoon is going to bend or not.  In fact, don’t even think about bending the spoon.  Mind power is able to master energy, and believing in your ability will allow you to do whatever you choose.  You can do whatever you set your mind to!

Continue taking deep breaths and feeling relaxed throughout your body and mind.  Once you’re in an altered state you can open your eyes without awakening.  When you feel ready, begin to rub the back of the spoon at the base where it begins to flair out into the wide shape.  Totally focus your concentration on mentally instructing the spoon to bend.  Transfer that feeling to the spoon, as you start becoming one with the spoon.  Concentrate on directing energy into the space between your thumb and index finger.  You can pass this feeling to the spoon, when you do so you ask it with your mind to bend repeatedly.  Visualize it bending.  You can apply a little pressure as you rub the back but do not physically bend the spoon. Allow the subatomic particles to dissolve in response to your mental commands.  You can start chanting, “Bend”, “Bend”, “Bend”, as you are passing energy into the spoon along with the vibrational properties of your voice.

You may experience difficulty trying to get the spoon to bend, which means that you need to take a short break.  It might help if you talk to someone else, while you are rubbing your spoon, or look around the room just to change your attention. That’s when it is most likely to bend.  If you keep watching the spoon, worrying over it, it will be less likely to bend.  This inattention takes some learning, but if you practice this a few times, then you should be able to do it.  Spoon bending is a lot like breaking a cement block with your head, or walking over hot coals in bare feet, except it is much easier to do and a lot more fun.

Red In The Face

Blushing is a unique human response that often happens due to unwanted social attention, everyone does it, some more than others.  Common blushing triggers include meeting someone important, receiving a compliment, and it often happens when a person drinks alcohol, eats hot or spicy foods, has a fever, does strenuous exercise or has a certain medical condition, or is on some medication.  Shakespeare can be confusing at times, because he says things in a poetic way.  In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet says, “Thou know’st the mask of night is on my face, Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek”, which in modern language would mean, “You can’t see my face because it’s dark out.  Otherwise, you’d see me blushing about the things you’ve heard me say tonight.”

Charles Darwin actually referred to blushing as “the most peculiar and most human of all expressions”, and he went on to say, “The reddening of the face from a blush is due to the relaxation of the muscular coats of the small arteries, by which the capillaries become filled with blood; and this depends on the proper vaso-motor centre being affected.  No doubt if there be at the same time much mental agitation, the general circulation will be affected; but it is not due to the action of the heart that the network of minute vessels covering the face becomes under a sense of shame gorged with blood.  We can cause laughing by tickling the skin, weeping or frowning by a blow, trembling from the fear of pain, and so forth; but we cannot cause a blush … It is the mind which must be affected.  Blushing is not only involuntary; but the wish to restrain it, by leading to self-attention actually increases the tendency.”

Blushing seems to serve no purpose beyond making an uncomfortable situation even worse as it seems that every person’s body has its ways of showing embarrassment.  It may start with you feeling a sudden jolt as your heart rate increases, then your cheeks begin to feel warm, because your body is releasing adrenaline.  Adrenaline is the hormone that speeds up your breathing and heart rate and causes your blood vessels to dilate.  When you find yourself being embarrassed, the veins in your face respond to a signal from the chemical transmitter adenylyl cyclase, which tells the veins to allow the adrenaline to do its magic.  As a result, the veins in your face dilate, allowing more blood to flow through them than usual, creating the reddened appearance that tells others you’re embarrassed.

It is very rare, but a person can actually die from embarrassment.  In 1860, a housemaid was caught red-handed pilfering food from a pantry, and she dropped dead on the spot.  Doctors at the time were unable to discover why she had died, although it is likely that a sudden rush of adrenalin caused her demise.  Medical surveys found that embarrassment about being diagnosed with bowel cancer or AIDS could be causing thousands of people to die prematurely for a similar reasons.  It is not all bad news, as another recent study found that people who are more prone to blushing are perceived as being more attractive to the opposite sex.

Blushing is just one possible reaction to feeling shame and whoever blushes may already be guilty, as true innocence should not be ashamed of anything.  On one occasion Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, a French Abbot in the Cistercian Order and leader of a crusade found himself gazing at a young lady and he thought that he was dwelling on her too long, so he started to blush, ashamed of himself, and then he leapt into a pool of freezing water up to his neck until he was cooled down from the heat of carnal longing.


The word jackass is funny because it has a double meaning, being both a male donkey and a foolish individual. Obscenity evolves from something innocent till it ends up crossing social norms.   The words bitch and ass both started out as literally meaning types of animals, being a female dog and a donkey.  English is a fluid language, that is in a constant state flux, evolving all the time with words becoming defunct and new ones replacing them.  The word ass started out in Old English as aers, which meant the back end of anything, not just animals.  This is similar to the British word arse, with the letters being shuffled around.  In US English we say ass where the ‘r’ is changed to an ‘s’ and the ‘e’ is dropped out.

Many compound words can be formed using the word ass to describe different types of people like: “assbag”, “assbite”, “assclown”, “assface”, “asshole”, “asslicker”, “assmuncher”, “asswipe”,  “dumbass”, and the list goes on.  People can be broke-assed, cheap-assed, crazy-assed, lame-assed, lazy-assed, lying-assed, sorry-assed, ugly-assed and weird-assed.  Someone might be called a “horse’s ass”, girls are often looked at as being a “piece of ass”, some people like to go around “kicking ass”, and of course others love to be “kissing ass” and there will always be those who want to “shove it up your ass”.  Someone might say, “You better get your sorry ass over here, because your ass is in trouble.”

In ancient Rome the festival of Vestalia was celebrated to honor the hard working donkeys who were used to grind the grain so the Romans could bake bread.  The donkey is strong and fit for burden and it always went to work as soon as the day began.  They pulled carts with heavy loads and they turned the mills to grind grain, by walking around in circles all day long. The donkey is no dumbass, they are real smart, patient, extremely strong, and not in any way intimidated.  Donkeys think, reason, and they have the ability to make decisions.  That gives them all the ammunition they need to test your patience, and from this they get the reputation of being stubborn.  Donkeys are known for their stubbornness, but they also understand the futility of resistance.  A donkey won’t startle easily, when facing danger there is a good chance that they will not flee.  People attribute this to stubbornness, but it’s just their way of problem solving and trying to survive.  Donkeys are very gentle, they are also patient and trusting with people that they know.

They are incredibly surefooted, which allows them to traverse diverse terrain that is too rough for horses.  Donkeys are more independent in their thinking than horses, and they will reason first, and then make decisions based on their safety.  Donkeys have an incredible memory and you can’t force them into doing something, that they see as being contrary to their own best interest or safety.  Their infamous stubbornness often keeps them and their riders out of danger.  Donkeys have a reputation for being slow-moving creatures, but in fact many can move as swiftly as a horse, especially when they know that dinner is being served.

The word asinine is often used to refer to a person who is foolish, unintelligent, silly, stupid and has the characteristics of a donkey and a jackass refers to an idiot or a jerk who generally makes a fool of himself.  Asinine can also mean daft, imbecilic, irrational, ludicrous, moronic and pointless.  I think that people who do not understand donkeys have given them a bad rap.  It is kind of amazing that I was able to write a whole post about jackasses and I did not mention Trump at all.

Most Famous Genius Of The Modern Age

Steven Hawking an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author realized that the Big Bang was rather like the collapse of a black hole in reverse.  His 1970 paper that he developed with Roger Penrose showed that general relativity implies that the universe must have begun as a singularity.  Hawking theorized that a black hole would only increase in size, never decrease since anything that gets too close cannot escape, thus black holes will keep on swallowing up more matter and gaining mass.

Hawking showed that a black hole can never be split into smaller ones and he argued that the event horizon’s ever-expanding surface area was analogous to entropy, which measures the amount of disorder in a system, which according to the second law of thermodynamics is only able to grow.  Hawking recognized that because the increasing surface area of a black hole and the increasing entropy of the universe were oddly similar that as the universe inevitably gets older that it will become more disordered.

A young physicist named Jacob Bekenstein suggested that the surface area of a black hole’s event horizon might be a measure of the black hole’s entropy, but this lead to a paradox between entropy, energy and temperature.  This paradox did provoke Hawking, so he decided to investigate this further hoping to prove Bekenstein was wrong in his assertion.  Hawking determined that Bekenstein was basically correct and he did this by bringing together two areas of physics that nobody else had managed to unify, those being general relativity and quantum theory.

Einstein and others had struggled unsuccessfully to unite quantum theory which is used to describe invisibly small things, like atoms and their component particles, with general relativity which is used to describe matter on the cosmic scale of stars and galaxies, thinking that this was the theory of everything.  This is the holy grail of modern physics, because the two theories seem fundamentally incompatible.  General relativity assumes that space is smooth and continuous like a sheet, whereas quantum theory insists that the world and everything in it is grainy at the smallest scales, being divided into portions and then distributed into discrete lumps.

According to quantum theory, space is not empty, in fact it is far from being a void, because space cannot be smoothly, absolutely empty at all scales.  Instead it is alive with activity as particles suddenly appear and disappear.  Pairs of particles are constantly being spontaneously excited into movement and aroused into existence, one is made of matter and the other is antimatter.  One of the particles has positive energy and the other negative, so overall no new energy is being created.  The two then annihilate one another so quickly that they cannot be directly detected, thus they are called virtual particles.

Hawking came up with a new theory that proved he was wrong about black holes not being able to get smaller.  He suggested that these pairs of particles could be upgraded from virtual to real, but only if they are created right next to a black hole.  He felt that there is a chance that one of the pair could be sucked inside the event horizon, leaving its partner stranded outside and this severed twin might then shoot out into space.  If the negative-energy particle is absorbed by the black hole, the total energy of the black hole decreases, and therefore so does its mass.  The other particle then carries away positive energy.

In 1974, Stephen Hawking predicted that gravitational black holes would emit thermal radiation and decay, because a black hole’s temperature increases as its event horizon’s surface area gets smaller, black holes that were tiny would be hot and Hawking described them as white hot.  Smaller primordial black holes can actually emit more energy than they absorb, which results in them losing net mass, while larger black holes will absorb more cosmic radiation than they emit through Hawking radiation.  He said that they would fizz with Hawking radiation, shedding mass until they eventually disappeared and they would not go quietly.  This radiation, emitted from the event horizon, is known as Hawking radiation and it explains thermal properties relating to black holes.  Normally, a black hole is considered to draw all matter and energy in the surrounding region into it, as a result of the intense gravitational fields.  Hawking radiation was one of the first theoretical predictions which provided insight into how gravity can relate to other forms of energy, which is a necessary part of any theory of quantum gravity.  To date it is still one of the most intriguing physical effects and bears great importance for the development of a quantum theory of gravity, cosmology and high energy physics.

Making Noise

The British prime minister Theresa May is making some noise by expelling 23 Russian diplomats in retaliation for poisoning an ex-spy, but maybe she did not go far enough.  There is compelling evidence that says Vladimir Putin had authorized this planned attack, however it seems that the whole world is afraid to poke the bear.  Putin wants to maintain his power no matter what the consequences are, and along the way he would love to try to restore the old Soviet Union and reestablish Russia as being a great power.  I am so sick of the Russians and despite overwhelming evidence, it seems that Trump is still not convinced that they were involved in any election meddling.  He talks a good game, but to me it seems like he is afraid of the NRA and of Putin and I never trust a man that cheats in golf.

‘Poking the bear’ is an idiom for doing something that might provoke someone into becoming angry or causing problems and it is very apropos in this case, as the bear is a symbol for Russia, the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and the present-day Russian Federation.  I will probably provoke someone with this post and I am risking getting that Russian Trojan Worm Ransom virus again, but I needed to rant and I felt like making some noise and sometimes you just have to stir things up.

A Firm Grasp On It

Having a firm grasp means that you have a good understanding of something, especially the finer points, which includes the basic rules, details, methods and principles.  Last night the young man caved in to his desires and he got a grasp on the situation, but now he is wondering if his masturbation will result in a variety of physical maladies, including going blind and growing hair on his palms.  Back in the dark ages rumors were spread about people who practiced self-abuse, would have their growth stunted, it would render them weak and feeble after the act, they would experience instances of madness or complete idiocy, they would suddenly sprout hair on their palms and eventually they would go blind.  This rumor spread because people believed in a half-baked logic that said whatever was responsible for new hair growth in boys, like that on their face, armpits, and in their groin area was being carried by their semen, which would of course end up in the palms of the masturbators.

In the dark ages, religion used desperate tactics so they could make people feel bad about normal things, usually this was done by priests, or some opportunist that attempted to blame nearly every single bad possible conceivable thing, on masturbation.  People began to read after Johann Gutenberg invented the movable type printing press and now in 1455 the Western world was able to read and examine the Bible.  One of the stories tells about Judah who was the fourth son of Jacob and Leah and he married Shua, a Canaanite woman and they had three sons named Er, Onan, and Shelah.   Er married Tamar, but he did a wicked thing during intercourse, by pulling out of his wife and spurting his load on her belly in order to avoid getting her pregnant.  Er wanted Tamar to maintain her beauty and the Lord saw this as a vile act, so Er was killed for doing this.  Judah told his second born son Onan to go to his dead brother’s wife and marry her, and raise up an heir for his brother.  Onan knew that the heir would not be his, so he emitted his semen on the ground, that way he could have sex with Tamar and not give his dead brother an heir.  God disapproved of Onan’s attitude, and He took Onan’s life also.

Back in the dark ages, no one would ever question a priest, so if they were told something by a priest, no matter how incredibly stupid it would sound, they would believe it.  Here today, we still have people who actually believe this insanity.  Masturbation is the act of touching oneself in a sexual manner for pleasure or sexual release, although it has been long been the center of taboo and many misconceptions.  From time to time, everybody does it, as it is not restricted to just adult men, married folks and the elderly do it too as well.  Teens and children engage in it, although it is thought that children are driven to do this more from a self-exploratory point of view than sexual.  Masturbation is not a sin and it does not have to be avoided at all costs.  Contrary to the demonizing myths surrounding masturbation, it is completely healthy and it can even benefit you mentally and physically.

Masturbation is the form of sexual behavior that most of us learn first, as it happens quite instinctively, although until recently, it was probably the type of sex least talked about.  Society has become more tolerant of it, but only when this activity is done in private, however it still carries shameful connotations with it and it is generally seen as a something that is done by a sad character.  I always thought that I would just do it until I needed glasses, and then I would stop, oh crap, I am already wearing glasses.

What I Don’t Like About You

I thought that I would write about something that is captivating today, but in a negative way.  To sum it up, I don’t like you at all because I think that you are an asshole, bastard, creepy, demonic, egotistical, filthy, grubby, heinous, ignoble, judgmental, klutzy, loathsome, moron who is also nervy, obnoxious, pathetic, quixotic, repugnant, smelly, tacky, uptight, vile, warped, xenophobic, and you are a yokelish zealot.
