Hi, Charlie, it seems to me that Roie occupies a very bleak space, thanks to the rather emotionally bleak landscape of our Upbringing. I thought it was only me that suffered, but all you have said has revealed that she did not escape.
It is a thankless place to be, and I have no real idea of how she copes with it. I expect she buries it, as Margaret did.
No doubt the buck had to stop somewhere, and that is why we have not had children. Otherwise, it would have continued ad infinitum down yet more generations.
Interesting that we went through the same thing of having others preferred over us, you with the two preceding, me with the two following.
Seems like Roie had no idea of what she was up against, being so used to bullying her way through, having no idea of any other way. Obviously utterly out of her depth, and not knowing it. I inherited the same thickness with a twist – I know when I am outstripped and know also I lack the wherewithal to deal with it! Tragic!
Incredibly impressive stuff, your accomplishments, and very wise to decide to avoid the undoubted nastinesses – both at home, and abroad!
Best and warmest regards to you, Lizzy and the Twins,
Celia.

Hi,
Thanks for this, again, I will need some more time to think.
I’m involving the Crockford’s (big farmers – lots of young ones, I believe they didn’t like the hitch-up that’s why she cut out 2003-2004. I used to shoot in their Downs & I have contacts in the very bitchy “Horsey World” in that area) at Pitchorn Farm, an old address of Roie’s; a Social Service “up-take” may be required (“poor thing”!). Lizzy works in the Government!
I think that (my/our) Assets went in this direction???
Ian, I have Skype’d, but he refuses to acknowledge. He may have some very serious problems too!
I don’t feel like getting any closer, but the kids may be fascinated, later on; where everything went, so on…???
Packard Cars (the original source of “Capital”) are still going strong & I get lots of inquiries about spare parts, models imported by my Grandfather, so on…
Many regards, family +++

Hi,
In the home of the “Norman’s & Knight Templar’s” (amazing – Chris loved Sardinia on his School Trip a few years ago).
If holed up for long – get some fun in! Kat’s flying out, she was in Menorca last year & took the kids out for their first club night. Concert a complete sell-out!
My reply to Kat Minter on Facebook – +++ someone that I write to nearly every week (she is 70+, Lizzy doesn’t mind & knows) her younger half-sister was my ex-wife! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8_915QtQgE & in the Stranglers / Blockheads (a music teacher to some famous ones/bands from Millfield – she was badly ostracised by her family, like I was by my ex-wife’s family, with lies & menaces, costing us both an amazing amount of dosh).
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun (“Old Tart Land” for you & me)!
Love
C & all in Dorch.

Such a shame!

Hi, Charlie,
You mention a Social Service “uptake” – do you mean Roie needed to go on benefits?
I knew John’s two children were not keen on Roie – they regarded her as a gold digger.
You mention she split up with John in 2003/4, which explains the letter to you in 2004.
I don’t believe Roie has the ability to admit fault in anything. Like, if she shouts loud enough, it will somehow ‘prove’ she is in the right, and it will obliterate all opposition. Who knows?
Much good wishes,
Celia.

Hi, Celia
I just feel slightly guilty that I didn’t do enough to help her. I had, unaware third parties against me, though I tried to get rid of them, the best that I could at the time.
She, also, rejected fiercely my help, but the symptoms were brewing up, getting worse and some Dr Consultants seen.
A friend is riding very nr Kingsclere, next weekend in a competition. I don’t have much “heart” in finding out anything though!
Who was supplying the gold, it may be, “menaced”, viciously, again – by, either side?
Roie, no benefits, but “psycho/mental – supporting”!
Many regards +++

She didn’t realise (no social conscience) that but was well informed of the birth and age of my twins Christopher & Amelia.

Hi Charlie, 1/04/2017 Thanks for your messages. I only wish I could throw more light, but it is something between you and Roie, known to the two of you alone.

Hi Charlie,
Thanks for your message. I find people who are self-deluded choose to be so,
as it serves some purpose for them. Having born the brunt of such behaviour from Margaret, Brian, Roie and Ian, I know they never unbend. They seem to live untroubled by any conscience, or obvious outer consequence.
Bullying others is their way of getting through life, but it does, of course, reveal the presence of hidden inner problems that remain unresolved.
Your life sounds so enriched, in contrast to lives lived within such strict limits. Such people are sick, and the only person who can help them is themselves.
It was inevitable you and Roie split because you were healthy, and she was not. We each have our own trajectory, and yours and Roie’s were colliding, instead of going the same way.
Like you, I am tied up at the moment, so a lovely weekend in Dorset is a far off dream! Hopefully one day, and meanwhile, my sympathy to the twins and the dreaded exams, but I am sure they will do well!
Many warmest best regards,
Celia.

Hi Charlie,

Roie didn’t get any money from Margaret’s house, as it was held in trust for me and my sister under the terms of my father’s will.

I would think news of you filtered through to Roie via Margaret, from likely just normal curiosity. Roie is not one to fall prey to any unscrupulous suitors. She has a decent roof over her head, thanks to you, and an adequate income for life, thanks to Uncle Stanley.

It is a shame your twins lost out on a large chunk of their rightful heritage in the process of such a nasty divorce, but what matters is that now great happiness, richly deserved, is finally yours, with a fantastic life for you and your family.

It is natural you would like to know that Roie is okay, but, rest assured, you can safely suppose she is, bar maybe some health issues.

Hoping this helps you obtain some peace of mind,

Many best thoughts, good wishes, and regards,

Celia.

Hi, Celia

MSN is terrible today and I pay a subscription for this service (for security) – I’m going to try this one out.

I suppose that the family have closure on this matter. Just so weird to of been contacted in 2004 by Roie about Margaret & quite a shock to Lizzy – we were so busy with our twins (they were 5 & the Divorce so long ago in 1992) + the older aged parents; mine had just all departed and Lizzy’s were on their way out (all such a shock to our systems).

The first thing – It’s really is not such fun getting older, but you have reassured me (not that Lizzy & I  could do very much) that things are all managed for want of any better terminology.

The second thing – “vulnerability”, I don’t think that I ever met a person / loved a person with such a hardened exterior, but so very vulnerable internally as Roie. There were in my mind some pretty insensitive, hardened, dare I say quite ‘common people’ floating around the Farm. I suppose being quite particular, even snobby, I found them rather tiresome. Being a “Carer” myself, though “Class” has not much to do with it, but some sort of extended form love given to all, with no prospect of any return, regardless of any typecasting. Of course, it is returned a thousand fold!

The third thing – but what matters, “Is that now great happiness, richly deserved, is finally yours, with a fantastic life for you and your family” – I’m not really sure about this one as many things can be a major and constant challenge, but we may be getting there or at least progressing through our lives as a quite close family of 5 in the house.

We do expect to hear from Dinah one day and Ian. If I do I will let you know, or Roie (even, but somewhat unnecessary now)? The electronic airwaves being especially powerful (they probably always were but in a different form, my “Atheistic Mysticism” of Aldous Huxley’s is coming out to play again)!

Many, many regards to a most loving and very sensible person ++++++ & thanks.

Hi Charlie,

Thanks for your message. I find people who are self-deluded choose to be so, as it serves some purpose for them. Having born the brunt of such behaviour from Margaret, Brian, Roie and Ian, I know they never unbend. They seem to live untroubled by any conscience, or obvious outer consequence.

Bullying others is their way of getting through life, but it does, of course, reveal the presence of hidden inner problems that remain unresolved.

Re the Tokophobia issue, I do not believe, having thought about it, that Roie suffered from it.

The source goes a lot deeper. Ian, likewise, did not have children. When you find two women, and one man, within a family, sharing one parent, namely, Margaret, all of whom have chosen to remain childless, then clearly something is going on that is highly unusual. Margaret had a real fear of ageing. We all received the message, loud and clear, that she did not want to become a grandmother. Margaret’s inability to be emotionally available meant that we were all very much in competition for her love and attention. (Roie was intensely jealous of Margaret showing any love for me, and did her best to sabotage my relationship with her. Roie was chronically insecure and extremely ruthless. Hence, ‘hide of a rhinoceros’!) This translated into a constant desire to win Margaret’s love and approval. So we all responded to the hidden command of her unspoken fear. Invoking her displeasure would result in emotional abandonment, an extremely effective deterrent. I can assure you that Roie is fine. It is not in her nature to be able to ‘soften’ towards you because she would then have to climb down from her perch of moral superiority over the divorce. This would mean having to acknowledge certain uncomfortable truths, definitely a step too far. She is okay financially, the house doesn’t look too bad, and has a car outside if I’ve googled the right one, so it is reasonable to think she is not alone and has somebody able to help her if necessary.

Dear Charlie,

Re the book you recommended, you probably already know about ‘Boarding School Syndrome’, by Joy Schaverien?

Hoping the twins are bearing up in the dreaded exams period – may the farce be with them!!!Best regards,

Best regards,

Celia.

REPLY

Hi, Celia

I’ve bought the book you recommended, but we have all been so busy!

DE-BRIEF

Rosemary didn’t quite realise my overwhelming reaction to her badly thought out moves to ‘oust me’ & ‘gain money with menaces’ & my ‘self-survival instincts’ gained from being at boarding school from the tender age of 7 to 18. What a dreadful person she had progressively (slowly) turned out to be, in (our) marriage!

“Good riddance to bad rubbish”, I say – but it still breaks my heart – so much young/effort/time/money at that time was involved and wasted – more for her though!

My Twins are thinking of sorting all this out “about their great heritage”, but they will probably wait until Rosemary is more decrepit, which must surely happen (as with us all). As I have said before, I would rather not be her for the young are so very (mentally, in this context) strong. She had, after all, put so many brains to work against me – so disgraceful. Looking forward to their results, if I’m still alive!

Many Best Regards

Hi, Charlie, 15/06/2017 From Celia Gollin

Thank you for your message and news.

It makes me ashamed to be related.

It is hard to comprehend how Roie could have acted as she did. I never detected anything ‘criminal’ or dubious, in either my mother or Brian. Both seemed upright citizens, who brought us up to be honest, and morally correct. What on earth got into her, I wonder? Brian, in particular, was thoroughly decent and honest in the way he ran his business, almost to a fault. It feels like there was some sort of bad blood in there somewhere, that surfaced in Roie. It is hard to understand why it should all have gone so wrong between you when for so long it was so good. Nothing can diminish the good times you had together, nor take them away. At least you have those memories. For whatever reason, what happened was meant to happen, and has led to better times. I feel essentially sad for Roie, who threw away something so precious, so totally irreplaceable, in exchange for – nothing. For the money and material things are worthless in comparison to a loving marriage.

A removed comment for private reasons (about further action’s)!

Very kindest regards,

Celia.

To Celia 20/06/2017 She (Roie) must be well out of “balance” on some of these but probably compensates in some “weird way”, very interesting to find out what this maybe – age will give her (all of us) the dreams of the past, especially of youth. That is what I went through with Roie – the older you get the more you seem to dream of an illuminated and the youthful highly sensual episodes of one’s past!

Roaring Boys an Whores

REPLY 22/06/2017 Thanks for that, Charlie! Strains of John Donne… The grave’s a fine and silent place But none I think do there embrace! I have no doubt that Roie sees herself as utterly blameless in what went on, or, at least, can ‘prove’ it to other people. What she is able to admit to herself is another matter, in the dark hours of the night. I can never forgive her for getting my mother to sell Greenacre, all because she didn’t want me to inherit it. She knew it meant everything to me, being my father’s house, and my last remaining link with him. Greenacre was the centre for everyone. Ian used to bring his friends there to mend their motorbikes, hold his annual birthday parties, and generally to hang loose. He was deeply attached to his little room. Greenacre meant security to him. Uncle Colin also felt relaxed there and would breeze in and out every weekend to see Brian, treating it like his second home. Everyone felt relaxed there. Brian had his den there, aka the garage, where he had his own private space and could go and work on his vintage cars. It was an essential hobby for him, especially being unwell, and its loss must have hit him hard. Ian lost his little room, and never used his room at the new house because it wasn’t ‘his’ room. He couldn’t invite his friends over or hold his parties there any longer. Uncle Colin also didn’t feel relaxed going over there, and this must deeply have affected his relationship with Brian. As a result, Ian moved away, and so did Uncle Colin. Their whole way of life just ceased after the move, to a place half a mile down the road, but a million miles away from their life before the move. Things were never the same again. Most affectionate regards, Celia.

Hi, Charlie,
Many thanks for your message.
In my experience, some people have no ability to admit they might in any way be at fault.
They bull(y)doze their way over others to get what they want, and are able to justify their every action. Sometimes my anger at Roie rises up, as yesterday. I knew selling Greenacre was a wrong move, and would cause untold damage.
It was so awful knowing there was absolutely nothing I could do about it.
It seems part and parcel of what went on in your case.
Total wrongdoing, under the radar.
But balance always rights itself.
Very kindest regards,

Hi, Celia.
I’m not really sure that I had no part in our divorce as I was getting quite fed up in any case + with all the subterranean (subliminal) & a very real type of “hide depressions & then high highs” type mood swings (monthly, hormonal based) – the psychotic Tokophobia – an early change of life or something other? – gone past her ‘sell by date’ embarrassment’s and her realisation – the great antics (bullying) to compensate (Roie’s)!

I had a thought about the general situation – The after Ist World War effects on their parents – their Era and the W War 11 (my parents were quite damaged). The very sad loss of Merial & your Father – Then Brians terrible Parkinson’s – then Margaret had some heart trouble, so on. The death of Dinah’s Dad, too + Mouse.

My family were not easy and so very selfish and foolish in a lot of respects, maybe yours too (all over compensated and so very frightened by (a “normal”) life + alcohol played a great and strong destructive part (the ghastly hateful rows)! The old adage, if you “can’t do your jumps, give up drinking and your courage will soon return.”

I’m so glad that I just had the time and the good luck to re-generate, so to speak & gave up (nearly all – mostly all) drinking & Pubs.

Nothing you could have done about IT, all just “aggro” – I try not to allow this in our family – Lizzy is somewhat placid and the Twins have learnt from association with people who are very much worse off (our disabled lot). Lizzy and I are both voluntary “Registered Carers”. We have a learning disabled who now lives with us – a bad reaction to some Whooping Cough medicine in the 1950’s – not easy, but so very rewarding, in a strange way – to care and such a very major challenge, but it can be very tiring (Respite we have sometimes, but we never really like to use it + the children are getting very independent, now at 18+)!
Many regards ++++
Charlie

Thank you for your message.

It is almost like Roie used against you the very stuff she had previously defended you against – bullies can come on as rescuers initially, with much sympathy for one’s plight. But when they turn, they do the same shit to you they once deplored when others visited it upon you.

I learned the best revenge, and the greatest benefit for one’s life thereafter is to just WALK AWAY. Thus ridding you of the shit entirely.

No more mindfucks no more emotional windups, no more reacting to them. For when you are reacting, they have the power. As soon as you stop all reaction, they can do nothing. They feed off you because they are weak. They are jealous because you make them feel inadequate. They pick on you when you are vulnerable, and want to feel superior to you because they feel inferior.

They cannot seem to be able to feel good about themselves unless they are putting other people down.
If embroiled in practical stuff with them, it is just a case of getting through it as soon as possible, until there is no more need for contact.

Because, whilst there is any form of contact, you cannot escape the crap. Once free of them, you begin to see how utterly powerless they are without a suitable victim to feed from. They get firmly reduced to size, and you breathe a huge sigh of relief, and move on!

At least, that is what I found! It is wonderful when you reach a point where you genuinely don’t care anymore and have untangled yourself from their emotional tentacles! Such people are master manipulators, that is how they survive. But, once you’ve seen through them, you can finally stop taking it personally and realise they only had power because unwittingly you gave it to them. It was always your power, not theirs, and they wanted to take it from you because they chose not to develop any power of their own. It may not be a conscious choice. But I believe we can all choose to be strong. It isn’t for us, to feel guilty for choosing not to prop these people up, and to choose instead to fulfil our own needs, instead of theirs. Such people are not happy, so they don’t want anyone else to be happy. They are ruthless survivors, at everyone else’s expense and without any contrition or remorse. When you get to the stage of not even wanting any revenge or even any divine retribution, then that is, in fact, the best revenge of all. It is their ability to play on your mind and emotions that give them their kick and if you remove that, they are left with nothing.

Very best regards,

Celia.

Hi, Celia

You have done something about it – by “realising it all”! I’m getting there – I think!

I had 30 years, say 0-30 of family plots, intrigue and personal menaces conducted (orchestrated) by my parents, more mother, less father, because he went somewhat weakly along with it (Mother was very strong). I was the older Williams heir (she had 2 children from a previous marriage that were in close contact and competing for constant support by the Williams’s)!

Interspersed by some great times for us all!

After, or just before 30 years old meeting Roie. Say 10 years of some respite with Roie batting on my behalf (taking an outsiders view), making her very unpopular. The last thing expected was that at 40 years old she would turn horribly for our last few months together, so very badly with some unreportable and despicable menaces towards me, but our future together, looking from what the life I have had since it would have been very dark; a deep slough of the “most horrible despond” (the excitement of our youth disappearing and being in a childless, nearly sexless marriage) contributing to the great (selfish & ungiving) darkness’s! Then a great light, so to speak, with my (forced by her – or I led her to believe so, at times) escape from Roie that was led by Roie whom very much dirtied herself with those “ghastly menaces”.

Quite impossible to live with those, when she gains full realisation that she has currently put off for so long, some “retribution” is inevitable, but from where it will come from, I don’t really know (internally?, or externally (self-harming accidents, as was before?). Maybe, this has happened by a withdrawal from the world, an invisibility, with her Talmudic cleverness of mind justifying everything (I find it difficult to justify anything – there always seems to be something else that could have been better and I’m open to any suggestions 24hrs x 7days; with the making of some never ending and humanly mistakes or at least I attempt to allow for them + apologise + maybe, have some humility)!

There are various Land Registries over all the years (25 years in 2018), no County Court Judgements or any Criminality & no “defaults” by Roie.

I’m so very fortunate and somewhat lucky!

Many regards +++

Hi, Charlie,

I guess you are right, about my not being able to do anything about it. And that very much relieves the frustration.

The damaging bullying and justification of the bullying, directed at me left me with the feeling that I had somehow caused the abuse because I was in some way ‘bad’, and even more so if I didn’t believe/wouldn’t admit that I was ‘bad’ – that was truly a hanging offence! It has taken me a long time to untangle all the twisted lines. I was very much the odd one out, so the herd instinct made them turn on me collectively and drive me out. I am thankful to say I have now learned to see it in perspective, and no longer take it seriously. But for a very long time, I took it completely to heart.

My father didn’t drink, so I have never had the taste for it, I am glad to say. But I have personally witnessed the destructive havoc it wreaks, both physically and emotionally, in peoples’ lives.

The plus side to it all is having an empathy with those who have experienced similar damage within their family, and an instinctive desire to help them. I think I played that role in my family – I was the one they could all vent on without fear of reprisal, in order to relieve their feelings of unhappiness, frustration, anger, etc. Bullying me was ‘therapy’ for them!

I imagine it is very rewarding, caring for Lizzie’s sister, but also demanding. My friends have a daughter similarly severely damaged as a baby. I feel so fortunate it didn’t happen to me.

Many affectionate regards,

Celia.

Hi, Celia 04/07/2017

One of the biggest bugbears is that she has not used “our family money to any good purpose” (if there is such a thing); been conned, so on..? The dreadful road that she lives on (from my transport driving days & Google Maps), seemingly all on her own, with a very low psychological codependent parameter, so to speak (OK, sort of, when young, but as one gets older: yucky)? Her invisibility, in this day and age, astounding – Ian is not so much! A scary darkness, but as you say, she feels alright – no deaths reported at her postcode recently! Pitchorn Farm, just up the road, up a trackway, a hideaway behind an industrial unit.

It is, still, fairly insignificant, talking about all this – you have your fabulous art & culture, myself, a not quite fully grown up family; all are much bigger than the “self”!

Roie, before the divorce, was fairly involved with the Doctors and her Petit Mal + car crash & very self-absorbed. Did this go on to be something much worse?

Of course, there will be various characters that would jump on the bandwagon (“building castles & collecting the rent”, so to speak) for some gain! There were a few rather unfortunate characters hanging about at Westbrook Hall Farm, hoping to pick up some spoils, which no doubt that they did!

I’m so lucky to have gone, very happily, way beyond that awfully trite and shallow menage that it was becoming!

Many kind regards +++

Hi, Charlie,

Margaret was always rather overconcerned re Roi’s health, a natural concern, of course, but I think this then led to Roie’s emphasis, developing from that. I know Roie had some ‘female troubles’, post-divorce. I had also been told she had a bad back, from various falls. This meant she couldn’t ride any longer, I believe. Health issues tend to get worse with age, so I don’t expect she is clear of such concerns.

It seems from what you have been saying that the marriage had indeed run its course. Things always find their natural level, and you and Roie were obviously not on the same level in life.

It surprises me, to learn of Roie’s relationship issues, as it was always presented to me that she was ‘healthy’ in that respect. I always assumed that she and Ian had no such problems because they had been raised in a ‘normal’ family environment, with no losses involved. But the relationship between Brian and Margaret was not harmonious, and the atmosphere at times was deeply oppressive. It seems it must have taken its toll on Roie, the effects of which later emerged inevitably in your marriage.

Re Pitchorn Farm, was that the farm belonging to the man Roie went to live with? Whatever the situation between them now, my feeling is that Roie is not in the best of health. It seems she is possibly involved in breeding livestock. It would be unlike her to sit and do nothing. I can only guess she is happy in the life she has made for herself and lives untroubled by conscience.

But if she has not made good use of your money, then in time that situation will right itself.

Very kindest regards,

Celia.

Hi Charlie, 21/07/2017

Just a few words on Margaret and Brian’s relationship, that may throw light on your experience with Roie.

After my father’s death, my mother was depressed and lonely. She had two very young children in tow, and, in the climate of the time, felt that to be a distinct drawback in finding a new partner. As well, there were few opportunities available for her to meet someone suitable. She met Brian at the Tennis Club, an acceptable middleclass watering hole in St George’s Hill, Weybridge. At the time, she thought he was a gregarious, sociable person, as it appeared when she met him amongst a group of people up there. He lived with his elderly mother, the youngest of three sons. His mother was not in good health, and, should she pass away, the house, a detached property in the Ashley Road area, would be sold, and the proceeds shared between the three brothers.

They courted, he went away for a year working abroad, and on his return, they got engaged, and married in 1953.

Margaret later told me that, had she known what he was really like, she would not have married him. She termed him ‘neurotic’, telling me that once they got married, his apparent sociability disappeared, and he never wanted to socialise, go out, or have people, apart from a very few friends, and Uncle Colin, come around to the house.

Prior to his departure to Trinidad, they had been going out for a year, not sufficient time to get to know one another.

From what my mother told me, loneliness was the main reason she married again.

As for Brian, he once told me he didn’t love her, and really had only married her because she had the house, and was a good housekeeper. He said the alternative, once his mother had died, would have been a bedsit in Surbiton, which he just couldn’t face. There was a rocky period in their marriage in which he was rather suspiciously close to his secretary, a young woman on her own with a small child.

When Roie came along, she was very much the apple of their eye, and could twist them both round her little finger. She ruled the roost until Ian came along, and then, as you know, there was a lot of friction. I remember Merial and me forever competing for Margaret’s love, with never enough to go round for the two of us. I saw Roie and Ian’s relationship as being a direct repetition of this. Margaret did not seem to have much love to give, and told me she did not have a good relationship with her own mother, and was glad to marry early to get away from home. She also made all of us children feel like a burden to her, which in turn made us view having children as a real drag. She was constantly going on about how, when she was married to my father, she had a butler, a maid, a gardener and a cook, saying this in front of Brian.

He was very passive-aggressive within the relationship, and it was her way of getting back at him, I suppose. So that is a brief summary of the goings-on at Greenacre, and very often I felt like the only real adult in the family.

It put me off marriage for life.

Maybe that clarifies certain issues, with regard to Roie.

Kindest best regards,

Celia.

Hi, Celia.

Sorry I’ve been very busy in getting a house ready for some new tenants. I will check this all out & your last email, after next weekend, when they move in. I’ve worked nearly 60 days straight – too long, but it is a fabulous property built in 1864, but with a myriad of problems (a good investment for our children & a second property in the meantime for us + its income).

I hope that Roie has collected a property or two, with her luckily gained/given resources from my/families estate & having only herself to bring up/look after in life (a principal & major achievement by Lizzy & myself that nobody can take away or ever deny)! Her butting out on my Parents was disgraceful, unforgivable + all her other pathetic and juvenile antics that put me through a short period of hell and were potentially life threatening – thank goodness this was professionally spotted & then my freedom was assured, from this short period of slavery that I had to a bully (less than a year at max, or was it slightly more?).

The pressure builds up (over time) day by day, year by year for her; the psychic unity of humankind (love/empathy/some level of co-dependency, so on…  – without it you may as well be dead or are): when it’s allowed to flourish out of these appalling darkness’s that have been found within this family & it’s dismal ending (the line & more). So interesting, after my rather brief (shallow & dark, in comparison) encounter on my “personal life’s timeline” with the close relationship to Roie & all the Maxwell-Muller’s. If nothing happens in my lifetime, by Karma, it will be in the future, presumably, with my children – in financial (as mentioned before) or in other terms, or with all the children’s children! Everybody wants to know today (if you want to look) & nothing and nobody can hideaway – electronic and public/private documents, so easily and legally are obtained today – Wills – Land Registry – Banking Ratings – Medical Histories, so on…

Hi, Charlie,

Thanks for your message.

Re the man Roie lived with after the divorce, who taught Roie about training gun dogs, I believe, it would seem they split up as a couple, and Roie was able to buy her own place when Margaret died, with the money she was then left. But there appears to remain a friendship/business arrangement, and I would imagine the money you gave her has been invested in the venture in question.

The above is guesswork, of course, based on Roie’s location, and the fact that his farm, which had been in the family for generations, according to Margaret, was extensive, and could, therefore, accommodate a livestock business.

The whole story is sad, stupid, and senseless. Those who are not able to stand up and be counted tend to resort to evasion. Guilt also plays a part. As does not being able to admit to any wrongdoing. They take after their mother in that respect. Not the sort of people I want to have in my life, antithetical to everything I believe in. So, in fact, I am relieved they have chosen to have nothing to do with me. I would otherwise feel duty-bound since they are ‘family’. A natural parting of the ways, I suppose.

I hope your Summer is going well, that the new tenants are happily settled in, and that the Twins have recovered from their exams ordeal! I am sure they will achieve excellent results.

Warmest regards to all,

Celia.

Hi, Celia reply to Celia (below) 09/08/2017

Doing some thinking about this?, the pressure, as I said, will build up & I’m learning about it “all” (getting there) at the same time. 25 years ago + is the recommended “Remembrance Therapy” (the recognition of “abuse”, they say, takes 14 yrs., on average)! Lessons for the kids! A book to write puts “50 Shades” to shame + reading all the books on the ghastly Public School System!

I know that for me all that was on my mind was a love for Roie (she knew this) & for (loving) life and all it’s “powerful forces” & being so “free & spontaneous” – at long last, after the sale of a “family estate” – “Westbrook Hall Farm”!

We had all!, been through many stages of PTSD, due to our “upbringings” & “parenting” & “family anomalies” – crushing’s of all our spirits & morals & dignities by some unspeakable cruelties (put downing’s – if we did not obey + the “ostracizations” & much worse) that were put on all of us; mostly for the sake of the social status quo (class, so on…). The selfishness of our peers (dominant mothers) with their power, towards us, at this time, was very overpowering! The delay in being empowered, unless one was extraordinarily strong (I don’t think that intelligence IQ had much to do with this). Many of us were constantly moved on and distracted so that we couldn’t specialise really fully on anything! The “balanced individual” was a paramount (product) & in my case in training for the possibility of a new World War; from a very young age at my prep school & as a teenager & a little later in the Army.

Roie & her, so called “backups” (the dressage rider/trainer), making her cruel, bullying, and so very dangerous for me; being so very tired & overworked – in the calling in of Public Authorities (I was ex-Army ‘fully trained’, somewhat frightening to some, maybe?) that did backfire on her & within one day – the nonsenses & lies – the accusation of an attempted rape, on her, by me, being one of them; I am being led astray by her in all ways!, – unforgivable, & very “rock bottom, silly, frightening, scary for me/any man: tactics” by her. The attempted coup d’état at the Farm, with her dressage rider trainer; his wife telling me every day that they were running off together & worse, they lived in a caravan in a barn on the farm, maybe, the “gun-dog man” as well, but I think that all this came a little later, I may be wrong – all is in her “tow”. She couldn’t continue this harassment very publicly, as her Public type of Divorce that she chose (not necessary, having no children – “childless marriage”!); it would not have been allowed to go through if there was “coercion”! She maintained a bullying stance for some considerable time, though only very privately against me, she only knows what those tactics were, but were on occasion life threating (when being physically assaulted by her, I found that to bare myself was the answer to this – she would back off & the run/go away) there seems to of been no dignity border that she would not cross to harass me & so dangerously: grabbing the wheel of the car from me whilst I was driving to steer into other cars, so on… She would, though, have occasional breakdowns of great pleadings, for this, or that, that added to her outcome of greediness’s (The Settlement). The main thing was to get it all through (esp., for me) so that we could finally separate, so out of tune was she!

So interesting (tantric-fic): quite fascinating to find out, how that she then did survive, in this “state of un-loving, denial, hating & awful lies”, a future unrequited, physical fascination, maybe – “love match” and a lonely 77 Newbury Road (in comparison, with my rather full life of love; a wife of 12 years younger & more pretty than Roie, children & laughter & crying & caring, all the “normal” things). What is 77 Newbury Rd like inside? How is she physically, the “state of mind” (esp., with her) being so important to her general well-being, so to speak… What does she do all day – life being “movement”!? Is she, now, “quite dead” in her “soul”?

Much too “dark”, for me to really “chase after”, but as all the info comes in, the picture “builds up & builds up”!

Many kind regards +++

Hi, Charlie, 12/08/2017

Thanks for your two messages.

I have no problem with deepness and find no surprises in what you say, it all just being an extension of what I experienced at Roie’s hands the removal of stuff sneakily in your absence, for example.

In the context of a relationship, many more scenarios for such stuff.

I know I was damaged by my upbringing, but I had no idea how very
damaged Roie was, since, as I’ve said, I was made to feel completely
inferior to both Roie and Ian, and to their respective lifestyles.

I will write more fully, the past few days I’ve not been following my
normal activities, due to a vet/animal hospital visit, so I am a bit out of kilter. The pet now on the mend, and home, btw.

Warmest thoughts and regards,

Hi, Celia (reply 13/08/2017)

I hope that all is well, animals can be most heartbreaking. I’m very pleased that the animal is on the mend.

The squirrelling of Roie’s accounts for her secretiveness (being found out; if articles are displayed and then gloated/ the “self-appraisals of cleverness” upon at home) and the self-induced loneliness that she must really suffer from.

I think that she seriously must have, underestimated the intelligence of the people that she has squirrelled from. Mostly such minor things, but all those things having an emotional attachment – thus a rather puerile excitement for her and amongst her friends that she discloses this to as some sort of one up man-ship that carries weird favours/showing off. + all the lies!

A particularly nasty trait!

Many kind regards +++

Charlie.

Hi, Charlie, 16/08/2017

Roie took childhood books of mine – the ones I was trying to regain that day I came over – and the rocking horse, that was mine and Merial’s, the day before I was due to collect my belongings from Walton. I rather let that one go – the rocking horse – as I knew I would
never succeed in getting it back, and, anyway, Roie could probably give it a better home.

Tiny is much better now, thanks to the Blue Cross. She had bad gum disease and had to have a dental. But, sod’s law, just as she really improved, her brother Tommy showed signs of having the same condition. I wouldn’t mind, but they are both feral cats, and won’t let me approach until they get really bad. So it is now nerve-wracking, waiting for Tommy to get to that stage, knowing he is in pain, and can’t eat, and needs to be treated without delay.

Typically, it has happened just when I have rather a lot on my plate, and when I’ve not needed to go to a vet for several years!

I’ll have more time to write in due course.

I do hope all is well with you, fingers crossed for the exam results!

Best thoughts and regards,

Celia.

Hi, Reply 17/08/2017

We have two feral cats from the RSPCA – always a very great worry, they disappear for days out in the country, but come back after a few days, even if it is wet: bone dry & well??!!

Terrible, “unnormal” in the “empathetic regions” this dreadful squirreling of Roie’s (past??, I have a feeling that it would get much worse with age!).

Exams = “One” is away to “UNI” + “Gap Year?” & “One” has another year at “School” by choice – what a boost!

I will think about this more when we have settled down a bit (the humans that is).

Dodgy Moment

“Thinking outside the box”
Hi Celia (Gollin) 14/09/2017
No news. I do expect “something” before our divorce’s 25th anniversary on Nov 2018!
Every – “menace”, “aberration”, “where or what for”; I’m afraid, can be put down to a severe “Tokophobia”.
The new scientific/psychological papers written on this subject have really made it a “fact”.
Of course, knowledge about this female condition did not really exist in early 1990’s, there were only anecdotes and stories for this now recognized profound psychological condition (it can happen also after pregnancy or giving birth, with more dire consequences).
It does exist in about 1 in 10 females – it is “very problematical for male partners”. I do hope that Roie may have found some respite in Lesbianism, or some form of escapism sexually from her Tokophobia, when her time on the Pill, advised by her GP, had really “run out” in 1990’s (advised by her GP to have children that went down with her so very and extremely badly).
I’m very pleased (somewhat proud) that I was able to remove myself from this dangerous situation that goes “against nature”, as my younger wife Lizzy would say.
Many Regards +++

Hi Charlie, thanks for the great photo of the Twins. I hope their plans, post exam results, are going well.
Thanks, also, for your thoughts on the situation re Roie. I doubt Lesbianism is her cup of tea, and I expect she just beat a complete retreat from it all after the menopause. Margaret had tales to tell of difficult births, her first experience being a forceps delivery with Merial. She had such a bad time that my father, she said,
was extremely surprised when she wanted another child. Apparently, my birth was a lot easier. Couple this with the fact Margaret seemed to find having children to be a complete pain in the arse, and it isn’t hard to understand why Roie wasn’t keen on the idea! Owning animals seemed an easier option!
I think Hell will freeze over before you hear from Roie! Having right royally stung you in the divorce, she cannot be free from guilt. Also re all the false accusations. So absurd, to have accused you of rape!
Such an obvious attempt to make you out to be the villain of the piece, in order to extract a maximum divorce settlement.

Hi, Celia – thanks for the reply.
All wonderfully “close to the bone”, but I know there is a “soft spot” in the psychology of Roie – accusations of rape without penetration; being, “led astray by her” (she had a “50 Shades” fetish at times, was so very surprising to her that what she said, I should do to her, came to this “half-cocked/baked conclusion”; her using this as a lever, besides, all the other rather pathetic tactics and menaces. Of course, she could have ruined me, had I not had let her get away with a myriad of some very minor concessions, to make her feel very satisfied, and to get the wretched relationship over with her and as soon as possible, however heartbreaking it was (I took all the cash +++).
It did stretch me out a bit, admittedly, but not nearly as much as it has done to her (that is why she wrote to me in 2004)! I dreamt up about the dark place that she inhabits and it reminded me of the compulsory Social Services that we had to do at Millfield, where there were people that we looked after for an afternoon a week all in an unforgettable terrible condition.
I was a top of my Platoon in mastering the “interrogation training” and the “gas chamber”, plus, the “outward bound survival” and was put forward for the SAS that I declined, as a marksman of all weapons in shooting for my Regiment. I did not agree with Northern Ireland’s British Gov politics. I knew that by being trained to kill at a very young age (Shooting Classes at Prep School – winning the All Prep Schools, one year) that I would have to carry this out in Northern Ireland. The Government had spent an amazing amount of money on me and were seriously upset, but I had joined on a “Special Engagement” that had a legal clause loophole that I used to extract myself. Mercenary work was available, but I had the Family Country Estate to manage that was worth such a lot more, without having to participate in lots of horrific nastiness’s. One also had to survive, the “putting downs” given out by our parents (esp., my Mother who had two previous children that lived with us and were given more quarter) at this time, very much like you, had to do!

Hi, Charlie, 30/09/2017

And surely no need to feel any guilt. You say yourself you tried to help her, but in my experience people can only be helped if they acknowledge they need help, and want to take that help on board.

Roie clearly wasn’t ready to admit she had a problem. I would be fascinated to know how she is doing, and partly curious as to what. Both she and Ian were so brainwashed by Margaret, into rejecting me.

Neither of them, sadly, will ever get beyond that, as also because of guilt at the way they treated me.

They don’t know how to deal with it.

What you have been telling me is a revelation – I bought the propaganda hook, line and sinker.

It has helped me more than I can possibly say. I now realise I was as brainwashed as they were.

I was made to feel I was the lowest of the low, and it severely affected my confidence.

Realising that Roie had problems of which I was completely unaware has shattered their carefully constructed version of events. I now feel I never had the chance to get to know Roie as she really is.

I wish I could help her, but honestly believe, from what I do know of her, that she would never admit to having any problems. Margaret was the same. It took me ages to realise that. But it didn’t occur to me that Roie had problems, because she had two secure parents, and a sibling, and therefore had not got such issues, I assumed. And also because I had never had the opportunity to get to know her.

Sheer curiosity means I would love to know how she is, and what she is doing! Maybe I have a sadly human desire to be told she is not doing very well, because of the way she – and they – treated me!

Many best regards to you, Lizzie, her sister, and the Twins,

Celia Gollin.

Hi,

Working on this – it’s terribly interesting. Also, having some real life (if not, “real”, deceased) “Ghosts” to think about!
No one does not have some “trail” – they have tried to avoid this (massively). A most interesting aberration!
In all my experiments exploring the “constructs”, trying to keep up with the iGENS (my kids and younger friends).
Or, at least to have “some knowledge” & not “poo-pooing everything” in my older age, that for sure, will be a sign, of my increasing senility & decrepitness!

How do you move forward?
The important thing to remember is that when someone ghosts you, it says nothing about you or your worthiness for love and everything about the person doing the ghosting. It shows he/she doesn’t have the courage to deal with the discomfort of their emotions or yours, and they either don’t understand the impact of their behaviour or worse don’t care. In any case, they have sent you an extremely loud message that says: I don’t have what it takes to have a mature healthy relationship with you. Be the better person, retain your dignity, and let him/her go peacefully.

Don’t allow someone else’s bad behaviour to rob you of a better future by losing your vulnerability and shutting yourself off from another relationship. Keep your energy focused on doing what makes you happy. Know that if you are someone who treats people with respect and integrity – then the ghoster simply wasn’t on your wavelength and someone better is coming your way, as long as you keep your heart open and your focus forward https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/living-forward/201511/is-why-ghosting-hurts-so-much

I’m sure that, eventually, all will be revealed, at least, I’m, an “open-book”. How horrible & very sad, it must be, not to “BE”; in this fascinating (electrified) modern world. All sorts of contention comes from my relationship with the Maxwell-Muller family. Thank goodness that we had no children, the marriage/breakup, no more, than a friendship ending. The sex & the “suppose-ed love”; no more than a (silly – childish) plaything (the world that they live in now, it seems)!

Many kind regards +++

“The eminent Harvard political philosopher Michael Sandel is Radio 4’s “Public Philosopher.” Now, as America prepares for its Presidential elections, he and Radio 4 are going on the road in America with a unique mission to lay bare the deeper moral questions bound up in the noisy Romney and Obama campaigns. In this week’s programme, Professor Sandel visits the heartland of America’s deep south, hosting a public discussion at the University of Dallas in Texas. He challenges ordinary Texans to consider the moral issues raised when it comes to controlling immigration and deciding who should be entitled to citizenship. Texas has a long frontier with Mexico and the issue of immigration divides people sharply. A million people in Texas are “undocumented” living without immigration papers. Many Hispanic voters want immigration to be reformed and President Obama recently outlined initiatives aimed at this base. Mitt Romney, too, is reaching out to Hispanic voters but many in the Tea Party movement pull the Republicans in the other direction. They insist that the border must be closed and deportations must be stepped up. Against this backdrop, our public audience will be asked: “how far should an open society go on accepting outsiders?” Michael Sandel weaves through these issues with the help of philosophers past and present”. Producer: Mukul Devichand. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ng7rr

UK, ‘Brexit Voters’.

‘Behind a web of bottles, bales,
Tobacco, sugar, coffin nails,
The gombeen like a spider sits,
Surfeited; and, for all his wits,
As meagre as the tally-board,
On which his usuries are scored’.
— Joseph Campbell, ‘The Gombeen Man’.

“The industrial nations of the world and their governments have been swept forward by the pressure of invention, through a barrier they did not see, into a world they have not yet understood. As the resources of the earth become more depleted, populations more crowded and more deprived, the greater will be their effort to pass the problem on to the next generation. Self-deception will become more persuasive. Optimism will take hold.

The remedy for our ills is neither remote nor obscure. It is to recognize that the world is indebted to Europe for two great achievements, which have transformed human life in the last 500 years. One is the control of nature, which has led to our present crisis. The other is the understanding of nature and of man, which is our means of escape from this crisis. How you may ask, can the two things be separated? Europe forced them together on America, Asia, and Africa.

In the first place, let us imagine, what would have happened without that rough intrusion. The conditions of these continents could scarcely have changed in the last 500 years. China would still kowtow to the Son of Heaven and Japan would still be shut up in the Shogun’s Cage. India would still be the prey to warring Rajas. Along the road to Tripoli, Khartoum, and Zanzibar; Arabs would still profitably drive their caravans of castrated slaves. Cannibal flotillas would still block the cataracts of the Congo. On their remote islands, Maoris and Melanesian’s would still be consuming human flesh. No population problem would have disturbed any of these lands. Indeed, it might never have disturbed them until genetic or ecological decay overtook them.

We must put aside our moral indignation about what the Europeans did, and how, and why they did it. What matters are the results?

For the first result, was the liberation of Asia and Africa. The way was opened for processes of change, favoring the growth and the unity of all human understanding.

The second was the subjugation of the whole world to the European idea of progress, by the control and unlimited exploitation of nature.

This good and this evil having been done, we can assume that the rest of the world enlightened by Europe will accept the good and reject the evil. Hardly so! The evidence is that the rest of the world will not generally accept free speech, representative government, and human rights as they are known in our Western World.

But, they will generally accept all the means they can get for exploiting nature and destroying the resources of the earth. The problem therefore returns, what we have let loose on humanity returns to us. Our chickens come home to roost. It remains for us to use our understanding of nature and of ourselves to control the dangerous power. 

(How, wonderful, at last, a ‘true awakening’ – Why hasn’t this appalling-ness, in today’s world, with so many that have been impoverished and uneducated, come right out before & so seriously? Because, of the, ‘Global Gullibility’ (index) – the majority of me/us Humans, ‘just wish to live a quiet life’. No hiding now!https://panamapapers.icij.org/the_power_players/ And,
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/business-35944255 And, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gullibility – Classes of people especially vulnerable to exploitation due to gullibility include children, the elderly, and the developmentally disabled.[2].)

If we look back on the last 500 years, we see the Hebrew and Greek, and Christian confidence in man as the master of nature, orating the Protestant Ethic of industry, ambition, and self-reliance, whose success especially in the New World has created the profligate societies we know. These, are the societies whose fraudulent promise the Third World so greedily accepts.

The people’s of course, know nothing of what is happening.

By the time their rulers have led them to disaster these rulers will be elsewhere. In addition, the industrial nations will be having all they can do to save themselves, without helping anyone else.

Our remedy, then is a respect for nature, the practise of thrift and the restraint of greed, and self-indulgence, which need not be too painful if we undertake it soon. But the longer we postpone it the more painful will it be.

To any such reformation, any such changing of course, one grave obstacle at once appears.

All the great industrial nations would have to change course together.

In addition, we know that each will believe it can do better than its neighbours can and will try to prove it. But, in all these nations, now, there are a few people who take seriously the future of mankind its quantity and its quality.

They are the people who know that our past evolution has been governed by the needs of future generations.

They are the people who recognize that the race, class, nation or species, which rejects this principle is putting its own future at hazard.

They are the people who therefore ask themselves the practical question, “Do we want to expand, to multiply, and to consume the good things of the Earth without limit, and without regard, either to the earth itself or to the children who will inherit it? Are we willing to set ourselves a limit, to measure the capacity of the earth to support our descendants, and us, and to fit ourselves to that capacity”?

The attempt to study the whole of our little universe, to understand its connectedness with the past and the future, to see the value of knowledge will perhaps persuade our own generation to pause, before it plunges into the abyss”. Professor, C.D. Darlington FRS  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._D._Darlington

The, ‘Knowledge of Relationships’, has come a long way, since, 1992. Thank goodness for my Divorce (‘volatile relationship’, ‘childless marriage’) the ‘Petitioner’, Rosemary Gillian Williams, nee, Maxwell-Muller, 1992 – ‘The Archers’ BBC Radio 4 . Knowledge :- “This study examined the relationship between coercive control and intimate partner violence (IPV) for men and women and for targets and perpetrators. One hundred and seventy-two participants (85 men, 87 women) recruited from three samples reported on their own and their partner’s behavior. IPV was measured using the Revised Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2). Coercive control was measured using modified items from the Psychological Maltreatment of Women Inventory (PMWI). Coercive control was associated with IPV, and this relationship was similar for men and women across the three samples. In fact, coercive control was predominantly reciprocal in nature, with women and men reporting both receiving and perpetrating controlling behaviors. Overall, coercive controlling behaviors were characteristic of individuals within violent relationships, regardless of their physical abuse status. The experience of violence, rather than gender, was the best predictor of coercive control”. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21780535

• Primary tokophobia is the fear and deep-seated dread of childbirth which pre-dates pregnancy and can start in adolescence. This often relates back to their own mother’s experience or something they learned in school.
• Secondary tokophobia is due to previous experience of traumatic birth, poor obstetric practice or medical attention, postpartum depression or other such upsetting events.
A few reactions to childbirth include the following:
“The truth is that the very thought of having something almost alien-like growing inside me is disgusting.”
“It’s not too strong to say that the very thought of childbirth disgusts me in a big way.”
“It’s much more than an anxiety – I am actually physically repulsed by pregnancy and childbirth.”
“I even struggle to be around friends when they are pregnant and can’t bear to watch or listen to anything about the process of having a baby.”[9]

The, ‘Petitioner’ (may only understand this), the ‘preposition’ was told by the ‘Petitioner’, was, for a, ‘more surprising and a somewhat violent form of sex’ (presumably, to achieve some greater satisfaction) and ‘talked about vividly’ at their ‘last love making session’, a few days earlier. A ‘verbal illustration’ was given, also, by the ‘Petitioner’ in the form of ‘being made love to by a third party’, in this case, by a visiting ‘Veterinary Surgeon’ to the Farm.
http://rapecrisis.org.uk/mythsvsrealities.php When it comes to sex, women and girls sometimes ‘play hard to get’ and say ‘no’ when they really mean ‘yes’.
Fact: Everyone has the legal right to say ‘no’ to sex and to change their mind about having sex at any point of sexual contact; if the other person doesn’t stop, they are committing sexual assault or rape. When it comes to sex, we must respect the wishes of our sexual partner and believe what they tell us about what they do and don’t want.

This was respected, by the ‘Correspondent’ (belief; ‘in what they do and don’t want’, temporally, or permanently, was recognized as now ‘faulty’ by him) the complete change of mind by the ‘Petitioner’, after a brief lull, in the ‘prepositioned act’ that took place in a secluded and outside area of the ‘Farm’. No sexual penetration took place and was never allowed by the Petitioner again; this was respected, although they spent more the best part of 6 months living together looking after all the animals on the ‘Farm’ and ‘sorting’ out her ‘Petitioning’ for a ‘Divorce’. During this time, when somewhat violently, and being seriously ‘put upon’ by the ‘Petitioner’. The ‘Correspondent’ found out that by ‘baring himself’ (privately, to the ‘Petitioner’) it would cause the ‘Petitioner’ to fully retreat; this was found out to be, a most effective strategy, causing no harm, but caused the ‘Correspondent’, some very obvious, but ‘small embarrassments’! And, quite beyond me, so complex and at this stage in life Tokophobia https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1742837/pdf/v079p00505.pdf

The Unholy Trinity 

Philosophy Cigarettes Whisky 

‘I See No Radiant Tomorrows’
Vaclav Havel former President of Czechoslovakia 1989-92
& Czech Republic 1993-2003
 

MEETING Vaclav Havel in his fourth floor Prague apartment can be unnerving. In the era of glasnost, the bugged telephone, rings constantly. Cigarette smoke blues the air. Whisky glasses rarely stand empty. Policemen sometimes stand guard outside the apartment across the street, as in a Kafka novel. Mr Havel’s dog was shot dead by the secret police on the doorstep.

This atmosphere of state repression gets on my nerves, but Mr Havel is a calm and remarkable host. Short, slight and sandy-haired he is I described in police files as a “subversive” and an “anti-Socialist element”.

In reality, he is a courteous, shy, soft-spoken rebel with a democratic cause. He is also among the most brilliant European writers and public figures of our time.
Time is precious. We don’t waste it an small talk. Mr Havel begins to speak with measured passion. The problem of totalitarian power weighs most heavily upon him. He explains that regimes such as Czechoslovakia, Romania and East Germany are unique.

Using more sophisticated methods of control than the dictatorships of the Third World, they are all-embracing and soul-destroying, “Totalitarian regimes get under society’s skin,” he says.

His words against totalitarianism are matched by a deep suspicion of the West. He is not a professional anti-Communist. He tells me that both systems contain huge, faceless organisations which treat people as mere objects.

“The world is losing its human dimension,” he says. “Self-propelling mega-machines, large-scale enterprises, faceless governments and other juggernauts of impersonal power represent the greatest threat to our present day world: Totalitarianism is no more than an extreme expression of this threat”.

Havel reaches for more, whisky and cigarettes, Our conversation turns philosophical.
He is is against Utopian visions – “radiant tomorrows” as he calls them. Life is ever-changing and ultimately intangible. Attempts to master it fully, to clamp it down to a blueprint, therefore always end up strait-jacketing and destroying life.

Mr Havel sees a direct link between beautiful Utopias and the gruesomeness of concentration camps. “What is a concentration camp, after all, but an attempt by Utopians to dispose of those elements which don’t fit into their Utopia?” he asks. Pol Pot and Khomeini are on his mind.

His question reminds me why the Western enthusiasm for Mr Gorbachev is considered unrealistic, even disheartening for many people in the East. The disgust produced by failed Utopias is something that people, living in the other half of Europe feel acutely.


I remind him that in his play Temptation a character says: “l don’t give any specific advice, and I don’t fix anything or anyone. The most I do is to stimulate now and again.”

He agrees that that could be his credo as a playwright. Theatre, he says, should not try to thrill or charm playgoers or make things easier for them by providing positive heroes.

“l try to fling my audiences into the heart of problems that they can’t avoid,” says Mr Havel, pausing to light another cigarette. “I try to push people’s noses into our common wretchedness. Theatre should remind people that the time is getting on, that our situation is bad and that there’s no time to lose.”

He describes how he began working in the theatre as a stagehand and soon became literary adviser at the famous Prague Theatre on the Balustrades.
His first play, The Garden, Party, brought him overnight fame in the Sixties. Since then he has become known as a master playwright of the Theatre of the Absurd.
He has written more than a dozen important plays, not all staged in Britain. Among the best-known are The Increased Difficulty of Concentration, an adaptation of The Beggar’s Opera and Temptation, performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Barbican last year.
He modestly forgets to add that he has received many awards, including the American Obie Prize for the best off Broadway play, the Austrian Award for European Literature, and the 1986 Erasmus, prize.

These brilliant accomplishments have their painful side. For more than two decades he has been banned by the, Czechoslovak authorities from directing his own plays.


Worse still, during the same none of his plays has been performed in his Country. The sole exception – an amateur production in 1975 of The Beggar’s Opera in a village near Prague – led to a police raid and to the interrogation of all those who took part in it. This clampdown visibly anguishes him.

Mr Havel, the playwright with an aversion to power – grabbing politicians; has been dragged into politics against his will. He has served three prison sentences in the past 10 years.
He tells me that politics “from below” is one of the few ways individuals can seek. meaningful existence in world threatened by impersonal organisations.

“Only by looking outward,” he says. “and throwing ourselves repeatedly into the tumult of the world, with the intention of making our voices count – only in this way do we really become human beings.”

Surrounded by police and constant threats of arrest and imprisonment, his personal courage is awesome. I now understand why the Czech authorities fear him.

Mr Havel appealed to Mr Tadeusz Mazowiecki, the Polish Prime Minister, and Mr Imre Poszgay, the Hungarian Communist reformer, to support two human rights activists imprisoned in Czechoslovakia.

“Civilization, we may say, has advanced (very slowly socially, if at all) only at the cost of a struggle between science (Latin for knowledge) and superstition (superstition, being: most religions, connected to government i.e., governments that are not fully secular by design, and its people that havn’t been ‘de-mystified’, ref, ‘Inside The Medieval Mind’ that is prevelant today, in many parts of the world @ http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b009s80l/inside-the-medieval-mind-1-knowledge ) working on the intelligence of the participants, a struggle of whose progress the legal status of torture and the social status of astrology (not, ‘astronomy’, some get confused with ‘astrology’, an ‘ignorant person’, on our TV the other night, educated, but very muddled), might serve as indicators” – Today, this really does include, a complete tolerance to any and all forms of sexual orientation, obviously, those people, and their countries, that may be trusted with modern weapons (nuclear weapons) have to show a ‘modicum, of some form of modernistic civilisation’, otherwise, they should not be trusted – Evan Davis and Shimon Peres BBC Newsnight 18/05/2015 40 minutes into the programme @ http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05w96jz/newsnight-18052015 Evil can always come out to play, “Mr Nice Guy, or, even, Mr Average” – ‘The Gulag Archipelago’ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. ‘Inside The Medieval Mind’ – ‘To our medieval forebears the world could appear mysterious, even enchanted.

“We might call this “hard compatibilism,” hard because while it sees causal explanations and ascriptions of responsibility as compatible, it countenances no softening of our reactive dispositions (e.g., the desire to retaliate) that we ordinarily think might follow when we discover the full causal story behind behavior (what is?, ‘the full causal story behind behavior’, micro, or macro). Hard compatibilism is opposed to what seems to me the widely shared, natural inclination to moderate retributive responses (or effusive, fawning praise) directed solely at the individual when it is clearly seen that the causes for behavior lie in external circumstances, which if they had been different, would have made the behavior less likely” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturalism_%28philosophy%29

Your duty, on religion, if educated: John Stuart Mill took this up in 1873: On religion in particular the time appears to me to have come when it is the duty of all who, being qualified in point of knowledge, have on mature consideration satisfied themselves that the current opinions are not only false but hurtful, and to make their dissent known […] The world would be astonished if it knew how great a proportion of its brightest ornaments – of those most distinguished even in popular estimation for wisdom and virtue – are complete sceptics in religion.

With silver and gold coins, everything can be bought and sold. They must circulate, unlike other forms of wealth, for it is not desirable for anyone to accumulate silver and gold…. Anyone who stores them up destroys the wisdom created by God, just as if one imprisoned the qadi of a town and prevented him from carrying out his duties toward the people.” How ‘two faced’ is this?

Holocaust Day – To be silent about it, ‘you are (become) complicit’!
“Fascist ideology has its roots in the writings of Rousseau, Fichte, and the quiet Professor Nietzsche (1844-1900). Nietzsche wrote “The object is to attain that enormous energy of greatness, which can model the man of the future by means of discipline, and also, by means of the annihilation of millions, and which, can yet avoid going to ruin at the sight of the suffering created thereby, the like of which has never been seen before… A new vast aristocracy based upon the most severe self-discipline, in which, the will of philosophical men of power and artist-tyrants will be stamped upon for thousands of years”.
Adolf Hitler thought it great stuff and modelled his life on it, “If men will read my works” Nietzsche wrote, “A certain percentage of them inspired by my philosophy, can preserve and restore ‘Aristocracy’, with themselves as ‘Aristocrats’. In this way they will achieve a fuller life than they can have as servants of the people”. It is evident that some ambitious and intelligent men did indeed read his works and were inspired by them, and put theory into practice. From the 1967 to 1974 ‘The Era of the Greek Colonels’, to the present rulers of many modern states. I submit to you that the philosophy of Professor Nietzsche of Basel is still alive and well! Some, ‘religionists’, ‘companies’, and ‘political leaders’, and some of our ‘teachers’, love this ideology, and the harsh self-discipline that goes with it. Today!

“Scientists on Europe’s Planck satellite say the first stars lit up the Universe later than was previously thought. The team has made the most precise map of the “oldest light” in the cosmos. Earlier observations of this radiation had suggested the first generation of stars were bursting into life by about 420 million years after the Big Bang. Planck’s new data now indicates this great ignition was well established by some 560 million years after it all got going. “This difference of 140 million years might not seem that significant in the context of the 13.8-billion-year history of the cosmos, but proportionately it’s actually a very big change in our understanding of how certain key events progressed at the earliest epochs,” said Prof George Efstathiou, one of the leaders of the Planck Science Collaboration” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-31145520

European Commission re-opens investigation into whether UK ‘faith’ school laws break European employment laws as UK Government shifts position
The European Commission has re-opened its case into whether ‘faith’ schools break European employment law by giving ‘preference’ to teachers of a particular religion even when religion is not a genuine requirement to do the job. The law is fairly cut-and-dry at European level and we’re hopeful that this will go our way and bring real change to the discrimination we see across the ‘faith’ school sector.

BHS – “We were also very lucky to have worked with Terry on a range of issues. As our patron he lobbied with us against ‘faith’ schools, filmed videos about Humanism for teachers to use in schools, and, after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, he became a public face for our longstanding campaign to legalise assisted dying for the terminally ill and incurably suffering.
Just last year, he took part in our open letter to the Prime Minister, rebuking him for his damaging assertion that Britain was a ‘Christian country’. He also submitted testimony in favour of assisted dying as part of our intervention at the Supreme Court case of Tony Nicklinson and Paul Lamb, making a powerful plea for the right to die.
Truly, Terry was someone who lived a good life, spreading a great deal of joy and happiness, even transforming his own suffering into a cause for the betterment of all society. We are eternally grateful for all his work, and can only say that we will miss him and that our thoughts are with his loved ones”. Pratchett

World Education: ‘global consciousness’ & ‘cosmic consciousness’.


This is hitting me hard, when I watch the News (today), “Culture change strategists all agree about the urgent need to promote, “global consciousness” or “cosmic consciousness” — a broad world-view with a high level of awareness of the interrelatedness and sacredness of all living things. It is thought that such a universality of mind leads not only to intellectual illumination, but also to heightened moral sensibilities, compassion, and greater community responsibility” http://www.culturechange.org/cms/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=177&Itemid=1 And, Why do I get a ‘cold shiver up my spine’ when one sees the ‘elite’ and the ‘religionists’ (the, ‘great and the good’) that are gathered all together, maybe, its not the kind words that they offer to us, which cost them nothing (paid to do so), but in the actions that they can ‘sponsor’, turn a blind eye, and have done so, so appallingly; in ‘real time’. Evil can always come out to play, ‘Mr Nice Guy, or, even, Mr Average’. Scary! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-28632223 The Queen, may have got it right, in ‘quiet contemplation’, for the day. And, Of course, for whatever reasons, those people involved must be prosecuted – see, as well ‘The Gulag Archipelago’ (‘young people’ should be responsible for making very sure that this happens) “Civilization, we may say, has advanced only at the cost of a struggle between science and superstition, working on the intelligence of the participants, a struggle of whose progress the legal status of torture and the social status of astrology (not – ‘astronomy’), might serve as indicators.
Advanced societies, therefore are so stratified as to keep the ‘primitive mind’ in a subordinate position. In this way individual responsibility and the rules of evidence, allow with fluctuating success the development of law and the organisation of knowledge and all that follows from these practises”. ‘The Little Universe of Man’ Professor C.D.Darlington. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-30407950 And,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cults_in_Our_Midst ‘The Six Conditions For Thought Reform’ Dr Margaret Singer – Religions And Cults (not much difference in most parts of the world).

I keep falling asleep after only a few pages, but what a good idea – “My challenge for 2015 is to read a new book every other week,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post, “with an emphasis on learning about different cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies.” I’m reading old Sci-Fi, ‘Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep’ and, next, ‘The Time Travellers Wife’: not quite so demanding, as Zuckerberger’s choices!

“It may be said that men, broadly speaking – inhabit two worlds. World One – Comprises their private thoughts, personal goals, and actions; in order to achieve them. World Two – Consisting of the Nation State in which they live. The State impinges on their lives, by making the laws they must obey, and deciding policy towards other Nation States. Internal laws and external policy, are mostly determined on a day-to-day basis, and without consulting the individual. Constant referendums or elections, whether genuine, or rigged, are impractical. This is the world of political philosophy, and philosophers are responsible for it. It is true that men of action have performed the labour of creating it, done the dirty work, if you like, to put it that way, but their bosses have been the philosophers. To think of the philosopher scribbling away in his study, as being a harmless word spinner, is as manifestly untrue, as it is naive. He is the most formidable person and the unacknowledged legislator of humankind, for good, or for evil. All educated people should be interested in what he writes, for his words will dictate the kind of world their children will live in. He is scribbling away now in Europe, America, Russia, and China, quietly determining the future. He does not appear on television to peddle his wares. He lights a slow paper fuse, which cannot be extinguished, and the bomb explodes after he is dead. There is, also, however, a more personal answer, “Science (esp, ‘anthropology’) tells us what we can know, but what we can know is little, and if we forget how much we cannot know, we become insensitive to many things of very great importance. Theology, on the other hand, induces a dogmatic belief that we have knowledge, where, in fact, we have ignorance, and by doing so generates a kind of impertinent insolence towards the universe (my note: an, appalling, selfishness, i.e., most religion). Uncertainty, in the presence of vivid hopes and fears is painful, but must be endured if we wish to live without the support of ‘comforting fairy tales’. To teach how to live without certainty, and yet, without being paralysed by hesitation, is perhaps the chief thing that philosophy in our age can still do for those who study it.” For youth, “There is not much time for political pursuits and your time maybe wasted, but to, ‘add a little knowledge to the world, should be your goal'”.

I hope that my kids do the same, but there is something, quite absurd (disgraceful, in some cases), that any kids, should follow their parents, in ideology, or religion (most).

‘DNA neither knows, nor cares, and we dance to its music’, R Dawkins (to think otherwise, has to be a form of madness, psychosis, or neurosis). “Less than 9.5 percent of human DNA is functional, according to Oxford University researchers. This overturns the mainstream theory that 80 percent of the human genome is of some biological importance. The study published in the journal PLOS Genetics reveals that at present, a total of 8.2 percent (7.1 – 9.2 percent) of the human genome is functional – “more than three times as much than is functional and shared between human and mouse.” And even within that small percentage, some DNA can be found that performs more significant tasks”http://rt.com/news/175844-human-genome-junk-dna/

‘The Triumph of Triviality’ Gaza, ‘Until All Gods Sleep’ –  The Promised Land. ’The Poison Of Holiness’. ‘Jerusalem Sadness’. A citizen of Jerusalem, a ‘religious souvenir trinket salesman’, “Without war, sectarian violence, sectarianisms, religion, and arms trading, we would have no money; stirring it up is great for business”. Ref, The Self Harm Of Our Children (1in10!) – Irrational Beliefs – Depression and Sadness – Building Jerusalem, ‘In Our Green and Pleasant Land’ – United Kingdom…GB, “Koestler ‘Bricks to Babel’ – Koestler, claim to fame, had his books burned twice, and once by the Nazis. “However, my job demanded that I live in Jerusalem, and thus to suffer those periodic bouts of depression to which its citizens seemed to be prone – I called it the ‘Jerusalem Sadness’. ‘Jerusalem Sadness’ is a local disease, like Baghdad Boils, due to the combined effect of the tragic beauty and inhuman atmosphere of the city. It is the haughty, desolate beauty of a walled-in mountain fortress in the desert. The angry face of Yahveh is brooding over the hot rocks, which have seen more holy murder, rape and plunder than any other place on this earth. Its inhabitants are poisoned by holiness. Josephus Flavius, who was a priest in the city and suffered from Jerusalem Sadness, has this strange phrase: “The union of what is divine and what is mortal is disagreeable.” The population of the city is a mosaic; but every portion of it is disagreeable. Perhaps the most disagreeable are the clergy, Muslim, Christian and Jewish alike. The Muslim clergy in my time used to call on the average twice a year for a holy blood bath. A peaceful Arab landlord would joke with the family of his Jewish tenants some Friday morning during the Ramadan, go to the Mosque, listen to the Imam, run home and slaughter tenant, wife and children with a kitchen knife. The Greek, Latin, Syriac, Coptic, Armenian and other Christian clergy would come to blows over such questions as to “whether the Greeks had a right to place a ladder on the floor of the Armenian chapel for the purpose of cleaning the upper part of the chapel above the cornice in the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem”; and “whether the Greeks must attach their curtain tight or in natural folds to the lower Nail No.2 at the foot of the pillar which lies south-east of the left-hand set of steps leading to the manger” (both examples are authentic, and I may add to them the regulation “that the Latins should have their curtain fall naturally down the same pillar, leaving a space of sixteen centimetres between it and that of the Greek Orthodox”). The Jewish clergy was engaged in feuds with the Muslims about rights of way to the Wailing Wall, and among themselves about the correct method of ritual slaughter; they also encouraged their orthodox disciples to protect the sanctity of the Sabbath by beating up the godless who smoked cigarettes in the streets and by throwing bricks at passing motor cars. The political atmosphere was just as poisoned. The Husseini clan murdered members of the Nashashibi clan; during the riot season they both murdered Jews; the Jewish Parties hated each other, the British, and the Arabs, in that order; the British sahibs, here called hawadjas, behaved as British sahibs used to do. There were no cafes or night clubs, no cocktail parties, and no night-life of any kind in Jerusalem. People kept to themselves, their church, clan or party. It was an austere, pharisaic town, full of hatred, distrust and phony relics. I lived at No. 29, Street of the Prophets, at five minutes distance from the Via Dolorosa, another five from the Mosque of Omar where for a shilling you are shown the Archangel Gabriel’s footprints on the rock. I have never lived at such close quarters with divinity, and never farther removed from it. The whole unholy history of the city, from David to Herod, from Pilate to the Crusaders, from Titus to Glubb, is an illustration of the destructive power of faith, and the resulting unpleasantness of the union of the mortal and the divine. It is this awareness of defeat, driven home by the haughty silence of the desert, of dry watercourse and arid rock, which causes the Jerusalem Sadness. Sadness apart, I grew increasingly tired of Palestine. Zionism in 1929 had come to a standstill. Immigration had been reduced to a mere trickle. Nazism, which was to turn it into a flood, was still a monster being hatched in the womb of the future. I had gone to Palestine as a young enthusiast, driven by a romantic impulse. Instead of Utopia, I had found an extremely complex reality which both attracted and repelled me, but where the repellent effect, for a simple reason, gradually gained the upper hand. The reason was the Hebrew language. It was a petrified language which had been abandoned by the Jews long before the Christian era-in the days of Christ, they spoke Aramaic – and had now been revived by a tour de force. By making Hebrew its official language, the small Jewish community of Palestine seemed to have turned its back on Western civilisation. I felt that to undergo the same process would be spiritual suicide. I was a romantic fool, in love with unreason; but I knew that in a Hebrew-language environment I would always remain a stranger; and at the same time gradually lose touch with European culture. I had left Europe at the age of twenty. Now I was twenty-three and had had my fill of both Arab romantics and Jewish mystique. I was longing for Europe, thirsting for Europe, pining for Europe. *Arrow in the Blue, ch. xxii. I asked the Ullsteins for a transfer, and had the good luck to be assigned to Paris. In subsequent years my interest in Zionism faded; it was reawakened, with a vengeance, thirteen years later, when the gas chambers went into action.” Koestler ‘Bricks to Babel’.

It is for this reason and not because of the weakness of indoctrinational work that they are growing up indifferent.

Very slight adjustments, from whatever source, could be our species (life on Earth) total demise – like 99% of all living things (past).

Reasonable things just don’t work! “For me, it is so reasonable to assume that the photons in those experiments carry with them programs, which have been correlated in advance, telling them how to behave. This is so rational that I think that when Einstein saw that, and the others refused to see it, he was the rational man. The other people, although history has justified them, were burying their heads in the sand. (for ages, 20 years plus) … So for me, it is a pity that Einstein’s idea doesn’t work. The reasonable thing just doesn’t work” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stewart_Bell

This familiar little bird turns out to navigate using one of the most bizarre effects in physics – quantum entanglement, a process which seems to defy common sense. Even Albert Einstein himself could not believe it. Jim finds that even the most personal of human experiences – our sense of smell – is touched by ethereal quantum vibrations. According to the latest experiments, it seems that our quantum noses are listening to smells. Jim then discovers that the most famous law of quantum physics – the uncertainty principle – is obeyed by plants and trees as they capture sunlight during the vital process of photosynthesis. Finally, Jim asks if quantum physics might play a role in evolution.

Why? “In every primitive (anthropological anomie/anomy – anomic, bricoleurs or Bricolage and pre-logical) tribe we find the medicine man in the centre of society and it is easy to show that the medicine man (sometimes: a leader, politician, doctor, celebrity, or royal, or as; the ‘archer’s’ body and came from the Alps, uncovered at Stonehenge, he recovered from a nasty tooth abscess, was close to death, thus; could show ‘others’ the way to healing; he was buried with the ‘full honours’, with some beautiful grave goods, maybe, people with deformities, could hold the same power over others – ‘one who knows what is best for all others’) is either, a neurotic or a psychotic or at least that his art is based on the same mechanisms as a neurosis or a psychosis. Human groups are actuated by their group ideals, and these are always based on the infantile situation. The infancy situation is modified or inverted by the process of maturation, again modified by the necessary adjustment to reality, yet it is there and supplies those unseen libidinal ties without which no human groups could exist. The medicine men are the leaders in this infantile game and the lightning conductors of common anxiety. They fight the demons so that others can hunt the pray and in general fight reality.” Dr Geza Roheim, ‘The Origin and Function of Culture’. And, the progress/history of humankind – 1) Episodic Stage – Primate cognition 2) Mimetic Stage – 4 million to 400,000 years (peaking with Homo erectus) 3) Mythic Stage – first use of complex language – 500,000 years to the present (peaking with Homo sapiens) 4) Material Symbolic Stage. Leslie White recognised this as defining the ‘importance in human culture’ (icons of religious faith, amongst the many other symbols) 5) Theoretic Stage. Donald calls this ‘institutionalised paradigmatic thought’ (writing – ‘massive external memory storage’). A better and more detailed explanation can be found in Colin Renfrew’s fascinating book ‘Prehistory’.

Bored (leaders), with the ‘failure’ of the Euro (15 yr old promises broken, of prosperity and wealth, for ordinary people, and full employment); bored with the failure of USA’s foreign policy, and the ‘rip-off’ banking crisis and lack of ‘face’; failure of the world-wide (government’s) ‘youth un-employment policy’, leading to ‘far right’, or left-wing gangs, ‘Hitler Youth’s’, or the, ‘equivalents’; Bored, with corruption, and non-payment of tax, by the ‘multi-nationals’, and the hoarding of wealth in ‘Sovereign Funds’ by a few; bored by inequality and the picking on the vulnerable, as an excuse, for ‘Austerity’s Policy’s’.
‘War Never Changes And Young Gentlemen Forget’ – ”In that cavalry mess I heard queer conversations. Those officers belonged to the old families of England, the old caste of aristocracy, but the foul outrage of the war, the courage against all ideals of civilization had made them think; some of them for the first time, about the structure of social life and of the human family. They hated Germany, as the direct cause of war, but they looked deeper than that and saw how the leaders of all great nations in Europe had maintained the philosophy of force, and had built up hatreds and fears, and alliances, over the heads of the people’s whom they inflamed with passion or duped lies. “The politicians are the guilty ones”, said one cavalry officer. “I am all for revolution after the bloody massacre. I would hang all politicians, diplomats, and so-called statesmen with strict impartiality”. “I’m for the people”, said another. “The poor bloody people who are kept in ignorance and then driven into the shambles, when their rulers desire to grab some new part of the earth’s surface or to get their armies going because they are bored with peace”. “What price Christianity?” Asked another, inevitably. “What have the Churches done to stop war or preach the Gospel of Christ? The Bishop of London, the Archbishop of Canterbury, all those conventional, patriotic, cannon-blessing, banner baptising humbugs. God! They make me tired”! The Same Words – Strong words to hear in a cavalry mess! Strange turmoil in the souls of men! They were the same words I heard from the ‘London Boys’ in Ypres (slang -“Wipers” 1914-18 World War 1) spoken just as crudely! But, many young gentlemen, who spoke those words have already forgotten them, or would deny them”. ‘Realities of War’ Philip Gibbs, Volume 1, P.244.

‘The battles of this century are less likely to be the product of extreme political ideology – like those of the 20th century – but they could easily be fought around the questions of cultural or religious difference.’ Tony Blair, 25 January 2014 – “The US Strategic Command, the agency responsible for country’s nuclear arsenal, will hold large-scale war games this week that will include 10 B-52 Stratofortresses and up to six B-2 Spirit bombers, along with other military and government agencies. The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, subsonic, jet-powered strategic bomber built to carry nuclear weapons”. Just what we don’t want, or need (at this time). This lot, playing silly-buggers, with us, and others, in NATO; including the Germans. The Eastern Ukrainians don’t like the Germans, with fire-power, at all, and with some very good reasons. Most Germans, don’t want this either, nor do most people, with very good reasons too. Stupidly, we are ‘upping the anti’, because our leaders are ‘bored’ (failures). Failure at home UK, with the EU (German, dominated) policy – UKIP likely to win the coming elections, too. http://rt.com/usa/158352-usstratcom-nuclear-wargames-nato/

Am I a ‘safe citizen’? I maybe not, but I know a few? Hitler (Nazis) banned this book, you can see why! Something, I have been reading – Getting, fed up and tired out, with all the ‘power politics’? The News, in general? Life, even? ‘Go back to the Garden’, at least, in your mind, and with a very good book, of any sort. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aOGnVKWbwc ‘ On the first days of these new wanderings, the first greedy tumult of new-won freedom, Goldmund had to learn all over again to live the homeless, timeless life of the roads. The homeless live the lives of valiant children, obeying none, their only lord the changing sky, with no aim before them, and no roof over them, owning nothing, ready for any hazard – their beggarly and stalwart lives. The are Adam’s sons, who was turned forth, and brothers of the innocent beasts. From the hand of God, from hour to hour, they take whatever He may send them, sun, rain, mist, snow, heat or cold, famine or bellyful, and never notice how time goes, or consider the future, or man’s history. For them there is no striving to be great; they have no knowledge of that strange idol called well-being to which the owners cling so fervently. A vagrant may be savage or gentle, skilled in his life or slow to cope with it, valiant or cowardly, he is a child. He lives for ever in the Garden before the coming of wars and cities, his steps guided on for ever by a few simple needs and longings. Cunning or slow of mind; feeling in the depth of his heart how brittle and fugitive is all life, how meagely and fearfully living things carry their spark of warmth through the icy universe; or else a poor gluttonous simpleton going in the wake of his gnawing belly – either of these is the deep implacable enemy and deadly rival of safe citizens. They dread him as they dread to be reminded of the running away of all that is, the eternal withering out of warmth and joy into chill inescapable death, which lives in the air and eats up all men’. ‘Narziss and Goldmund’, Hermann Hesse (1877-1962).

“Finding a virus still capable of infecting its host after such a long time is still pretty astounding – but just how long other viruses could remain viable in permafrost is anyone’s guess. It will depend a lot on the actual virus. I doubt they are all as robust as this one. “He added (Prof Claverie): “We freeze viruses in the laboratory to preserve them for the future. If they have a lipid envelope – like flu or HIV, for example – then they are a bit more fragile, but the viruses with an external protein shell – like foot and mouth and common cold viruses – survive better”  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-26387276

Have you been to, or even, thinking, of sending your children, to a Prep School; Public School; Separating; Divorcing; Living on your own, so on?.., maybe, think hard about it. Have some ‘back up’ hydrocortisone, or get tested; later in life, up to 60 years later; when you really might not feel so good!
“We are social creatures. Cortisol has also been linked to various types of separation. One widely studied form of separation is maternal separation. Following maternal separation, there is a significant increase in cortisol among both the mother and the infant. These changes are due to dysfunctions in the Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis during a critical period in childhood. One study found that cortisol levels significantly decreased in peer-reared Rhesus monkeys in comparison to mother-reared monkeys at the age of two years. This difference was significant at the mark of two years, and remained significant when tested again at three and a half years.[14] This study marks the importance of maternal care, showing that despite being raised by a large support group, Rhesus monkeys experience high increases in cortisol when raised without their mother.
These effects of maternal separation on cortisol also continue much later in life. One study which examined mid-aged men and women and found that separation lasting 1 or more years during childhood is associated with decreased levels of cortisol secretion, possibly symbolizing a diminished activity of the HPA axis.[15] Another study examined adults who were put in to foster care during World War II. Those separated from both of their parents had higher levels of cortisol in comparison to those who were not separated. These effects were seen more than 60 years after the childhood separation had occurred. This study also found that the length of separation did not affect hormonal responses. .[16]
These studies mark the importance of maternal care and its effect on cortisol levels not only during childhood separations, but also cortisol levels later in life. More research is needed in this area to be sure of the definite cause of different HPA axis functioning later in life. Also, future research is needed to be sure there is indeed a critical period for maternal separation and its resulting decrease in cortisol. .[15]
Aside from maternal separation, studies have found that increases in cortisol levels are also associated with romantic partner separations. These increases in cortisol were more commonly found when the partner who was left for a period of 4 to 6 days has a high attachment anxiety. This could be due to increased stress when their partner was away. But, further evidence is needed to identify the relationship between romantic separation and cortisol”.

“The evidence for an “ocean” of water under the surface of Saturn’s moon Enceladus appears to be overwhelming. The little world has excited scientists ever since jets of icy material were seen squirting into space from a striped region at its south pole. Now, exquisite measurements using Nasa’s Cassini probe as it flew over the moon have allowed researchers to detect the water’s gravitational signal” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-26872184

“Members of a group are more likely to lie after they inhale the “love hormone” oxytocin, a study has found. This hormone is known to be released during close bonding between groups, and mothers also release it during childbirth and breastfeeding. The results suggest that individuals in closely bonded groups are more likely to lie when it benefits the group than when it only benefits the individual” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-26771703

Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer spoke of the subject in 19th century: “And as the capacity for believing is strongest in childhood, special care is taken to make sure of this tender age. This has much more to do with the doctrines of belief taking root than threats and reports of miracles. If, in early childhood, certain fundamental views and doctrines are paraded with unusual solemnity, and an air of the greatest earnestness never before visible in anything else; if, at the same time, the possibility of a doubt about them be completely passed over, or touched upon only to indicate that doubt is the first step to eternal perdition, the resulting impression will be so deep that, as a rule, that is, in almost every case, doubt about them will be almost as impossible as doubt about one’s own existence.”—Arthur Schopenhauer, On Religion: A Dialogue. Several authors have been critical of religious indoctrination of children, such as Nicolas Humphrey,[4] Daniel Dennett[5] and Richard Dawkins.[6] Christopher Hitchens and Dawkins use the term child abuse to describe the harm that some religious upbringings inflict on children.[7][8] Dawkins has written a children’s book that seeks to convince them of what he deems to be the fallacy of various religious teachings[9] and states that he is angered by the labels – “Muslim child”, or, “Catholic child”. He asks how a young child can be considered intellectually mature enough to have such independent views on the cosmos and humanity’s place within it. By contrast, Dawkins points out, no reasonable person would speak of a “Marxist child”, or a “Tory child.”[7] He suggests there is little controversy over such labeling because of the, “weirdly privileged status of religion”. On several occasions Dawkins has also made the controversial claim that sexually abusing a child is “arguably less” damaging than “the long term psychological damage inflicted by bringing up a child Catholic in the first place”[7] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_and_children  “The former national head of counter terrorism is to lead an inquiry into 25 Birmingham schools over allegations of a hard-line Islamist takeover plot. But the appointment of Peter Clarke, an ex-deputy assistant commissioner of the Met, was described as “desperately unfortunate” by the chief constable of West Midlands Police, Chris Sims. The Department for Education (DfE) has appointed Mr Clarke to review evidence. Birmingham City Council said it had more than 200 reports over its inquiry” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-27031941

Easter Truth’s. Married life; what (very important) things men have to think about, such as: the latest discovery of a ‘look alike world’ billions of miles away; midnight ramblings with a wife or partner; the ‘late night conversations’ or ‘the early morning ones’, when (all) the kids are asleep, so on… “It is not surprising that husbands and wives seem so little part of one another. It is surprising that there is so much love as there is. For there is no food for it. What does it live upon – what nourishes it? Husbands and wives never seem to have anything to say to one another. What do they talk about? Not about any great religious, social (sexual), political questions or feelings. They talk about who shall come to dinner, who is to live in this lodge and who in that, about the improvement of the place, or when they shall go to London… But any real communion between husband and wife – any descending into the depths of their being, and drawing out thence what they find and comparing it – do we ever dream of such a thing? Yes, we may dream of it during the season of ‘passion’, but we shall not find it afterwards. We even expect it to go off, and lay our account that it will. If the husband has, by chance (or study), gone into the depths of his being, and found there anything unorthodox, he, oftenest, conceals it carefully from his wife (the rest of the world, in my own private opinion as well), – he is afraid of ‘unsettling’ her opinions”.

It is our arrogance…our admiration of ourselves” Charles Darwin (1809-1882).
