Odd discourses on, whatever!

DISCOURSE ONE.
Can someone fall in love with an idea? That is a question I have been intrigued by for years. Now I can answer: yes. Three months ago, or so,I listened to a song on Face Book. I was instantly transfixed by its simplicity and joy. I fell for its lyrics, it’s words, it’s message. It was sung beautifully, which made it even more appealing. But it was the words, the Idea that there could be a better world waiting for us to enjoy peacefully, that uplifted me. I felt my soul rejoice at the vision of heaven on earth.
Soon after my chance discovery, the song was hacked and appeared no more. I felt so disappointed, sad that no one else would get the chance to hear this joyful message, I commented on the Face Book page of the singer, Angie Zawada. She lost 10,000 views overnight. I was upset for myself, let alone anyone else, because it meant so much to me. The good news was that eventually it returned on Face Book, but the bad: it had to start from zero views. Now, as at the 5th March, it has 8,623 views. It is a song that will remain in my heart as long as I live. It answers, for me the question ‘What is this world coming to’ so often asked. The answer: it’s ‘Coming to Love’!

DISCOURSE TWO.
Science chooses not to follow religion or spiritual matters. Fine, but as Einstein himself wrote: “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind”. Throughout his life, Einstein credited much of his work to intuition. Could intuition mean, Learning Within? I think so. Ideas, solutions, new problems even, seem to ‘pop’ into the conscious brain. And science cannot explain how.
Now, here’s a thing: two articles I have just read in the March issue of Focus, a popular science magazine, cited the possibility, probability even, of the universe (and everything in it) being either a hologram or a computer simulation. The first possibility deals with information; the position and property of every particle/non particle in existence; this information being ‘held’ at the boundary of the universe itself. O K so far? The second possibility expounds the work done by some to explain us away as subjects of a computer simulation program, albeit an alien or futuristic one. This, for me, implies a ‘something’ or two that does the work. And what work! I do not think even future quantum computing would be up to the job, least of all because of our free will, which would put a variable of infinite complexity into the program.
Would it not be simpler to combine those ideas into the one I, at least, am more familiar with now. Such as the One, the Light of Love. As I explained in my blog, On the Wings of an Angel, the Big Bang equates as the One becoming the many. The One is all the information of what is, was and will be, self organising in a computer program way. So, in a sense We are the programmers of our own ‘simulation’. Occam’s Razor may apply here, since my hypothesis may make the fewest assumptions. What do you think?

DISCOURSE THREE.
Giving of your love on twitter of face book can be a lonely affair. There are times you feel your words are lost in the wind blowing onto your face, and they are not heard. Of course, at other times they strike a chord with the recipient, who then goes on to share their love too.
This word ‘Love’ is perhaps one of the most hard to define. See red box above for my definition.
Love is naturally linked with sex. The love shared by two adults, necessary to bring into the world new life, or just to bond two people, of whatever sexual pairing, together for a stable partnership.
It is important to be aware of meanings of words and their uses in context, especially in the association of love and sex. Love is not a chemical attraction, sex should not be seen as a one night stand. One word that has got me in trouble in the past is Impotence. Here is a dictionary definition:
Impotent, adjective.
Unable to take effective action; helpless or powerless.
(of a man) Unable to achieve a sexual erection.
Please note, the two statements are poles apart. When I say I feel impotent to have actually stopped an irresponsible action from taking place, the meaning, for most, should be clear. Impotence is a powerful word. It shows how helpless we can feel at times of need. We like to think we can help, and are distraught at the thought of failing.
So, we should not be quick to judge a word, or the character of the person using it, even if we are not entirely certain of its different meanings. Often we can derive some meaning when that word is used in context.

POEM ONE
The Soldier’s Lament

The taste of war is a bitter pill
We kill and maim against our will
But we your hero’s remember still
The taste of war.A bitter pill.
#love

POEM TWO
The Whale’s Song

The whale sings a song of joy
We sing a song of sorrow
Mourn the loss of these souls of the sea
For them, there will be no tomorrow.

  1. It sounds as if you are in the depth of pondering .. Love has been defined into a too narrow a view of sexual attraction these days Andrew.. Love encompasses ALL… including love of Earth-Animals and Humans… We have lost our way however for we have developed our LOVE of things too… and ownership of ‘Things’ .. We have become possessive with Love- owning not only ‘Things’ but people too… We become Fearful and jealous thinking someone else is about to take away our possessions-loves- and so we have restricted ‘Love’ into a narrow view…. As we have separated ourselves from each other saying this is Mine… I own…. I control….. I am ‘powerful’…. That power has turned into greed… and so we look upon each other with distrust thinking they want what we have… To take away that power takes the importance away- Hence the word you used earlier is used to describe Impotent!…

    Love- true Universal Love was never meant to be like this….. When one truly ‘Sees’ we are ALL of us Love.. we free ourselves from the jealousies and hates and we embrace ALL Creatures as equal…We are All of us ONE.. we are each as aspect of the whole… which we are experiencing.

    A thought provoking post Andrew many thanks for allowing me to air mine.. 🙂

    • My thanks for your comments Sue, they are entirely right. It was the ‘ambiguous’ definition people hold about love that prompted me to write. Some were offended by my use of impotent, even when I used it in context as I said.
      When I were a lad, we could say ‘Thank you, love’ as a reply, to a woman. But not to a man. We could love women, but not men, even brothers or fathers. ‘I love you brother’ was very rare. A friend may have been very special, but you didn’t Love him. To say so was to invite extreme prejudice of the ‘queer’ or now ‘gay’ sort. Such rubbish. As I mentioned in an earlier post, many of my hero’s were gay. I did indeed Love them. I have gay friends I love just as much. Thankfully today they are not ‘sent away for correction’, though prejudice still exists.
      Yes we are all the Light of Love. And soon everyone will accept this and we can resume exploration of this beautiful universe of ours in peace.
      Love, as always,
      Andrew.
