1/🧵🎥 REFLECTION on Fear & Love – what connects 9/11 & #COVID19?
On #Sept11, 2,996 died. 412 were 1st responders running INTO danger.


WHY did they do this? Listen to my patient Col. Correa👇

HINT: it was NOT religion, politics, or patriotism.
2/ When someone around us needs help, the only universally unifying response is #LOVE.

Wells of love (see pics 👇) must be what we drawn on to achieve success in serving others, whether on 9/11 or in this #Pandemic.

3/🎥 I cared for 9/11 hero Colonel Victor Correa as he died in our @VA hospital years later. His story is told in #EveryDeepDrawnBreath. He carried men out of the Pentagon saving lives. Watch more of his testimonial…

Fin 2020, le Dr Angelo Antonio Fierro, coordinateur national de l'école de médecine anthroposophique en Italie, également médecin scolaire d’une école #Steiner, donnait une conférence sur le Covid-19, à la Maison des Arts Anthroposophiques, à Naples : 1/24
Durant ce qui s’apparente à un véritable prêche, il explique ce qu’est le #Covid et comment s’en prémunir.

L’acmé de son discours ? La lecture d’un #mantra de Rudolf Steiner accompagnée de gestes d’#eurythmie. Voici le cœur de son enseignement : 2/24
Selon lui, l’#épidémie (il n’y a pas de pandémie) de Covid-19 est “la maladie du matérialisme unidimentionnel“. Elle ne provient pas d’un virus mais d’une “pensée malade dans laquelle la #médecine a perdu son élan christique et s’est camouflée de manière unilatérale“. 3/24

2| There's probably not a single person on the planet who hasn't heard the earth shattering news:
Ben & Jerry's will no longer sell ice cream to Israelis living in occupied #Palestinian land.
3| Reminder: Transferring your civilian population to a territory your army is occupying "Attempts to alter the demographic composition of an occupied territory" and is "unlawful and engages State responsibility and criminal responsibility of individuals."…

Time for a #StoryTime Thread:

The setting: Highschool English class, Rural Ontario (#UCDSB- Upper Canada District School Board)

The Task: 2 pg-short Story, a reasonable amt of time given for 2 typed pages assigned - two or three days iirc.

The Players: Students, Teachers.
Fast-forward to turn in day.

I submitted 12 pgs, instead of 2. It was a sci-fi story, intentionally a bit tacky, drawing on quantum theory and every other thing my brain has ever experienced or conceived of.

I'd proudly said in grade-school that I'd be a quantum physicist lol
"QT" was my "convenient lie" to get around the travel/traversal time problem in said stories. It was a space folding slip-drive in the vein of Alcubierre/Spacial folding theories. Yup. I had that much prep for a "two-page" short story.

They also assured me I wasn't autistic. K.

When folks online think women at midcareer are “too much” or “overcompensate”

you are 100% right

=working 3-10x as hard to get 1/2 as far
on display

Tired of experiencing us online?
Try living this way ALL THE TIME
If you don’t recognize it, ask yourself whether your goals and/or identity align with power, privilege, structural inequity

..and in how many domains?

How complex or intersectional is your identity?

Centering on self is the best way to misinterpret the world around you.
If you start by asking yourself questions

you will start to learn to ask others questions, not assume

One version is called “the beginner’s mind” or a child-like curiosity about the world that promotes learning & understanding

Opposite of expert

Juste pour vous dire que les cours vont commencer bientôt. Préparez 📒&🖊 !
En attendant, je vous laisse avec Nna Ẓehṛa, surnommée Tazewwadit, du village de Wizran (Ayt Σebbas), qui rencontre Mbaṛka sur le chemin vers la demeure d'une autre amie et voisine : Taseɛdit 😊
Sa rencontre avec Mbaṛka : elle prend de ses nouvelles et y évoque le caractère éphémère de la vie, avant de raconter avec nostalgie la fois où elle dû laver Taseɛdit (surnommée Tasewdit < la noire) dès sa naissance pour la "blanchir", car trop foncée aux goûts de son oncle2⃣/5⃣
Avant de partir chez Taseɛdit elle prononce des invocations pour dire au revoir à Mbaṛka, et lui demande même le pardon de l'ici-bas (smaḥ n tudert) pour ce qu'elle aurait pu lui faire de mal, de peur de ne plus la revoir, elle qui a déjà 90 ans. 3⃣/5⃣

but especially to those of you who have felt very uncomfortable in your profession for the past few months

I know that many of you recognize yourselves in this way.” >

“You are in #dissonance today,

as are many agents of what we call today "forces of order"
and that not so long ago were called "guardians of the peace ". have slowly slipped ...towards values ​​contrary to what animated you and still lives in you.” >

(1) Musings of a foreign interferer.

It's one of the labels I attach to myself, because of Democrat hypocrisy. I'm not legally allowed to buy an official MAGA hat, bc it's a campaign contribution, & I'm a foreign national.

Yet other foreign nationals can buy US elections.
(2) "Foreign interference" clearly means different things to different people. So I have a bit of fun with the term.

Ironically, socialist John Lennon said this:
(3) I'm tweeting today about a whole range of subjects and will add some of it to this thread.

Remember to do electronic #prepping today, tomorrow etc.

Have your own data backed up somewhere, preferably not only on the cloud.

Be strict with yourself on your priorities.

Ça soir, à #Vienne, des #Turcs mènent une expédition punitive à la recherche d’#Armeniens, dans la ville.
Ils croisent et agressent un équipage de la @PoliceNat38.
Nos collègues ont encore fait preuve de sang-froid et de courage face à 150 individus surexcités.
Des groupes communautaires n’ont pas à imposer leur loi!
Malgré les collègues violemment pris à partie, aucun blessé n’est à déplorer.
Force doit rester à la loi et aux #policiers de la République.

1/4) In 75 BC, a band of pirates captured a young Roman nobleman who was on his way to study in Rhodes. From the start the 25-year-old Julius Caesar refused to behave like a captive. When the pirates told him that they had set his ransom at the sum of 20 talents of silver...
2/4) ..he laughed at them for not knowing who it was they had captured and demanded they raise his ransom to 50 talents! Settling in to wait for the ransom to arrive, Caesar bossed the pirates around, made them listen to his speeches and shushed them whenever he wanted to sleep..
3/4) ..always addressing the pirates as if he were their commander and they were his subordinates. In the 38 days it took for the ransom to arrive, Caesar would often tell his captors that after his release he would return and crucify them all - at which they would merely laugh..

1) Wenn es anhaltendem #Misserfolg durch #immunisierte/#immunisierende und auf #Anpassung #konditionierende #Sozialstrukturen gelingt, dass ein Mensch damit aufhört #nachhaltigen #Change und #kognitive #Herausforderung zu motivieren, ist das für uns alle ein großer #Verlust.
2) Hiermit stirbt eine weitere Chance auf #krisenfunktionales #Überleben der #Menschheit.
#Systeme, die ihre #Heiler zum Schweigen bringen, sind nicht nur krank, sie sind auch #wahnsinnig.
#Gesunde Systeme begehen keinen #Selbstmord.
3) Mit jedem der durch soziale #Frustration durch uns seinen #Mut verliert zu sagen, was gesagt werden muss, dass sich #Organisation, #Politik, #Wirtschaft & #Wissenschaft ändern, verschieben wir den Zeitpunkt, an dem wir beginnen ernst etw. gegen die kommenden #Metakrisen zu tun

(1) Historic. One of his best messages ever. If he was reading some of it, that didn't show. Authentic, warm, heartfelt.

Some context below re "...there's never been a great leader that would've done that."

#Courage #MAGA🇺🇸
(2) When he said those words I had to re-listen a few times to be sure of what he meant. No doubt, our opponents will exploit the ambiguity.

He means: I had the option of hiding away, or moving to my offices here, and I moved here because (many reasons, including:)
(3) That his decisions are always based on what is best for the USA and the world. Those two audiences could really do with an optimism boost right now.

Think about the character of the Chinese regime, and want they wanted out of this pandemic. (Whether LIHOP or planned.)

By far the best book I have read in a long long time.
One can simply begin from any page,for each note makes so much sense that we get lost in them , sometimes chuckling & often amazed .

Here are MY learnings from
" A Book of Simple Living" by Ruskin Bond.
The book is enriched with life lessons . Most profound of all for me being ,

#Life is simple despite all its hardships and complexities .
For the purpose of life is to live ....

Now, how we choose to live our life makes it simple or complicated.

Do we chase #happiness by climbing infinite mountains in the quest for fame & wealth or do we savour the goodness in the little things that often come our way but go unnoticed and unappreciated by us ?
For ultimately , " It is the little things that matter the most ".

If you really want to make a change in the world, do something hard like #nonviolent #resistance. Read up and learn #satyagraha or change. It takes #strength & #courage; physical force is forbidden even in the so-called most favorable circumstances.…
If your cause is #righteous, Gandhi believed, the movement would speak for itself.

My personal justification for it is #psychological/#neurological (#CNS/#HPA).

If you use #violence, well the one with the biggest #ego or the biggest ego-extension (guns, tanks, war) will win.
Removing tools of violence (words, arms) from the equation, you form a mirror.

It's not easy though. You'd have to refine/drop/manage/elevate past your own #ego.

People - depending on personal history & psychology - sometimes become enraged at what they see in the #mirror.

@jmert_58 @fedagentmark @chiefaudiotech @dbongino We'll have moments of despair. That's a natural, IMPORTANT part of the cycle. Those trying 2 defeat us, 2 demoralize us COUNT on us giving up right then & there, 2 end it, too weak 2 KEEP MOVING FORWARD, too weak 2 #PUSHBACKHARD. They count on us FEEDING that defeated moment.
@jmert_58 @fedagentmark @chiefaudiotech @dbongino Yet, it's only a moment. That's what it is. A moment in the Continuum of the unfolding event... yes continuing to unfold

If we only maintain our focus UPWARD, these desolate, demoralizing feelings can and do serve to REMIND us of what we CAN and WILL accomplish. #COURAGE #GRIT
@jmert_58 @fedagentmark @chiefaudiotech @dbongino These difficult moments are NOTHING in the big scheme of our DESTINATION.
We may not know where we're going, but we know who we R= We may not know who we R, but we know where we're headed
And they both apply.
There IS #evil in this world & it seems 2 B trained right upon us.

Je suis frappé par la présence des SDF qui errent sans but. Ils sont noyés dans la masse en temps normal, aujourd’hui on ne voit qu’eux dans les rues désertées. Les fantômes délaissés de la guerre sanitaire. Terrible 😞 #Nice06 #ConfinementJour6 @Nice_Matin
