“THE UNITED NATIONS EDUCATIONAL, SCIENTIFIC, AND CULTURAL ORGANIZATION HAS GIVEN THE UNIVERSITY OF ZAMBIA US$340,000 TO DEVELOP A DEGREE PROGRAMME TO TRAIN STUDENTS IN WITCHCRAFT”

.

“In November last year, Higher Education Minister Professor Nkandu Luo announced that Zambia should consider research and the study of witchcraft as a science that can be used productively for the benefit of the country.”

“The two primeval Spirits (mainiiū pauruiiē) who are twins (yə̄mā) were revealed [to me] in sleep. Their () ways of thinking, speaking, and behaving are two: the good and the evil (vahiiō akəmčā). And between these two [ways] the wise men (hudåŋhō) have rightly chosen, and not the foolish ones (duždåŋhō). And when these two Spirits met, they established at the origin (paouirīm) life and non-life (gaēmcā ajiiāitīmcā) and that at the end (apə̄məm) the worst existence (aŋhuš acištō) will be for the followers of Falsehood (drəguuatąm) and for the follower of Truth (aṧāunē) the Best Thinking (vahištəm manō).”

– Gathas (Y. 30.3-4)

Kids today are into witchcraft and astrology, or so I’ve been told, but, I seriously doubt any of them have ever really considered

GRAPPLING WITH THE UNREAL

THE RETURN OF THE ‘BAD FEELING’

.

“Bob, I got a bad feeling on this one, all right? I mean I got a bad feeling! I don’t think I’m gonna make it outta here! D’ya understand what I’m sayin’ to you?”

-Sgt. O’Neill

from the 1986 film,

‘Platoon’

which Richard Corliss described as follows:

“Platoon is different. It matters.”

.

Pretty much every last one of you has no idea what this ‘bad feeling’ I mention is, and, I say, thank God for that. Honestly, it’s enough of a hassle just having the damn thing return let alone having to deal with your hysterics over it. No offense, but, uncontrolled sobbing, and relentless moaning combined with the excruciating sounds of your constant sniffling as well as the sight of the back of your hand repeatedly running across your nose is not in any way going to mitigate the calamities associated with the return of the ‘bad feeling’.

.

According to some yahoo over at the website signology.org, “The Celtic people believed in the spiritual symbolism that the bird symbol was a messenger of the Gods”.

I’m sorry to have to tell you this

.

What is that, eight words? Yeah, it’s eight, that is, unless instead of using the contraction ‘I’m’ you used ‘I am’, then it would be nine. Nine¹ words. Nine more than most times you’d want to hear. Sadly, right now, in what I like to call ‘THESE TIMES OF TROUBLE’, none of us has the luxury of choosing not to hear. In fact, if you (or anyone else) make any attempt to not hear, either by physically covering your ears while repetitiously uttering, “La La La La La”, or by any sort of ‘mind trick’ you may have at your disposal for either ‘tuning’ or ‘zoning’ out, I will (if I hear about it) most definitely make you pay dearly, quite dearly.

¹Fun Facts:

Nine is the number of the one who accomplishes the divine will.

R. Allendy speaks about the curious arithmetical properties of the nine which gives it a very particular character because of the use of our decimal notation system. In another numerical notation system they would cease to exist: the difference between an unspecified number and the number formed by the inversion of its digits is always a multiple of 9 – example: between 26 and 62, the difference is 36, multiple of 9; the multiples of 9 are always composed of digits where the sum (once reduced) is equal to 9; the product 123456789 x 9 gives 9 times the digit 1 in the answer (1111111101). Concerning this last property, Elisabeth Haich mentiones the next calculations

0 x 9 + 1 = 1

1 x 9 + 2 = 11

12 x 9 + 3 = 111

123 x 9 + 4 = 1111

1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111

12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111

123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111

1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111

12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111

123456789 x 9 + 10 = 1111111111

I CALL THIS ONE ‘HIDING FROM THE JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES’

.

This work was inspired by an actual event.

Earlier today, while minding my own business, I heard the unmistakable sound of a car coming up the gravel drive. Not ever expecting any visitors I popped up from my most comfortable seat upon the famed purple couch and immediately spotted what I could see were two of Jehovah’s witnesses* in a late model Toyota intent on disrupting the solitude of my Saturday. Needless to say, without a moment to lose, I dashed out of the front room, through the kitchen (where only the night before I baked nearly 2 dozen of the most scrumptious vegan chocolate chip cookies), around the corner, up the stairs (without holding the hand rail), and into the room (sadly now all but empty) of my assistant who some time ago fled to the other side of the continent. What you see above is a representation of what I looked at for the several terrifying minutes those Witnesses spent pounding upon my front door.

*Some will ask, “But, how did you know they were Jehovah’s Witnesses?”, to which I would answer, “Oh, you can tell, believe me, you can just tell”.
