18:41. Watching “Ship in a Bottle”, episode S6, E12 of ST:TNG. A very good analogy. Or instead of a ship in a bottle, an alternate reality in an imaginary pyramid, which when inverted and revolved, becomes a diamond, which inner scintillating light, transforms the world in which it dwells, into the same alternate reality. Hence the transformation from living in an alternate reality in an imaginary diamond in a harsh, cruel, hostile reality, to living in an alternate reality where harshness, cruelty and hostility is transformed in perception, into the vision of Gerry Anderson, Gene Roddenberry, NASA’s Apollo, Bobby Kennedy, John Lennon, and Baha’u’llah. A very agreeable transformation, if you ask me.

18:43. Ref:- Global Research from Canada.

“If there was a way the United States could achieve its long-term strategic objectives and, at the same time, avoid a war with Russia, it would so. Unfortunately, that is not an option, which is why there’s going to be a clash between the two nuclear-armed adversaries sometime in the near future.”

Maybe the “long-term strategic objectives” of the USA need to be binned, and re-thought out. A suggestion would be to promote 3 things, 1) the oneness of mankind instead of the USA being an exception, 2) world peace and the demilitarisation of the whole planet, by scrapping the foreign military bases and the arms industry that supports them, and 3) a world federal government in which the influence of the USA is based not on its wealth (50% of the planet in 1948?) but on its population (6% in 1948?), and national influence is proportional to population in a world representative federal government, in which nations are not pitted in conflict with each other, but are bound, through their own enlightened national self interest, in co-operating with all other nations in the interests not of their own nation but the good of the entire human race and the entire planet. You KNOW it makes sense!

21:47. It seems to me that the biggest conflict in the world today is the conflict between, on the one hand, what the west says in rhetoric to the rest of the world and its own people about the reality the world is in, and on the other hand the truth about the reality the world is in. In other words, the west is lying through its teeth, and the conflict is between the truth and the lies that the west announces as truth. I suppose therefore that according to the false reality that is the empire of lies ruled by the western elite, that makes me an extremist.

21:31.Dreamt just now about being on the receiving end of what Mr Cameron declared some months ago was a widespread “moral collapse” in Britain, as my father often used to say “if you treat people like animals, they will behave like animals” such as in Ferguson, Missouri, the United States, perhaps. As Shoghi Effendi said, that the flame of materialism will devour the cities. When people feel like animals, having been deprived so long of the Message from God from His latest Messenger, Baha’u’llah, (1817-1892), and they have no idea where to go to find His Teachings, then all they have is their instinct for material survival, at any cost, the cost being the human rights of their fellow-citizens, the safety and security of their neighbours, the sanctity of the privacy, the property and the dignity of any human being who possesses what they want, to perpetuate their morality lacking, spirituality lacking, God-less existences. Access to other peoples’ property is theirs, access to other peoples’ money is theirs, other peoples’ food is theirs, by right of the survival of the fittest, by right of the law of the jungle, by right of any human being who is motivated by their own selfish, materialistic needs and wants. As Baha’u’llah put it, “such shall be the plight of humanity that to reveal it now would not be meet and seemly”. But to reveal it all in the full disgusting, appalling abomination is getting nearer. And all for want of being told in time that Baha’u’llah has come to the world. To those responsible for denying access of the people to the Baha’i Faith, “Taste ye what your hands have wrought”, soon you will “behold the confusion of the tribes of the defeated”.

20:16. Its easy to cause me to see red and turn green, like The Hulk, or Mr Hyde. Just deprive me of my coping mechanisms, Star Trek repeats on CBS, access to The Net, cause me pain by giving me a weird infection that makes me tired, stressed and tetchy, make me face up to the pathetic reality of my miserable existence, and bingo, I am ANGRY and you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry. And THAT Pete is totally unable to experience the existence or relevance of God. You have been warned, SO many times.

20:22. “Fear ye the sagacity of the faithful Qur’an”? Yes, and fear ye even more the fearsome vengeance and retribution of the Lord of Hosts, the Lord of the Judgement Day, the God of the Last Day,the Day of the Advent of Divine Justice, the Great Announcement Himself, Baha’u’llah, and if you disbelieve in the Return of the Imam Husayn, or the descent of Ruhullah, the Spirit of God, the Christ, in the Glory of the Father, in the Baha of Allah, then “taste ye what your hands have wrought”! And behold in your God-forsaken communities the fulfilment of the verse, “Behold ye the confusion that hath befallen the tribes of the defeated” Fear ye the Qur’an? Yes, and fear ye The Bayan, and fear ye Baha’u’llah’s “Kitab-i-Aqdas”, the MOST Holy Book, written in 1873 in Akka, “Blessed is the visitor to Akka, and blessed is he who visits the visitor to Akka” (an authentic hadith of the Prophet of God, Muhammad, PBUH).

14:30. I am complicated, says an informed expert. I am a method actor, living the roles, says 1. I am perhaps a “lad” method acting the role of a nerd, like Marshal Josef Stalin, according to an informed expert, “a mystery wrapped up in an enigma”. Intent on “breaking the mold”, intent on “letting the side down”, intent on being a rogue whilst playing the compliant, servile, obedient, well-behaved sheep, intent on being fully human, whilst giving the appearance of conformity, just to keep the bastards off my back, whilst obfuscating the truth with a patina of “nerdist tendencies”, a veritable theological trainspotter. And what of the mirror image, a nerdette, method acting the role of a ladette. Was there ever such a perfect complementarity, such a perfect juxtaposition of reciprocal coping mechanisms? Was there ever such a match made in heaven? But I am biased, and ever likely to remain so.

05:45. I just dreamt that one day my best friend was taunting and mocking me that that special person was coming back to live in Oxford, but that she still wanted nothing to do with me. That evening after the Sun had set, a flood arose which created a deep raging torrent, streaming through the main streets, perhaps 5 feet deep. In consultation with a few strangers, other townsfolk nearby, I decided to throw myself into the torrent and swim as best I could. Later that night, all my stuff, my lifetime of accumulated garbage, was piled up on a sea front, and during the night a heavy sea rose and washed it all away, and there was nothing left afterwards. And although there was just a slight twinge of feeling “gutted”, it quickly passed, and I felt completely liberated, which was nice.

15:19. “Wanting nothing to do with someone” could mean something opposite to its obvious meaning, just like “Pigs might fly!”

15:20. I later dreamt that I got something stuck in my teeth, a piece of thread. I pulled it, and it was VERY long. When I’d pulled it all out completely it tuned out to be a very thin tapeworm and it was still alive. Then it became an Ophidian as in ST:TNG “Time’s Arrow” Parts 1 and 2, with a head like the “Loch Ness Monster” in “Stingray”, though much smaller, its head being perhaps 2 inches wide,. I was in the process of somehow killing it, and trying to stuff it into a glass jar too small for it, when I woke up.

15:21. Perhaps these dreams are symptomatic of the effect of asking for the veils to be burnt away, and for a fountain of living waters, every morning. Well, more mornings than before.

15:22.  ” I am complicated, says an informed expert. I am a method actor, living the roles, says 1.

And what of the mirror image, a nerdette, method acting the role of a ladette. Was there ever such a perfect complementarity, such a perfect juxtaposition of reciprocal coping mechanisms? Was there ever such a match made in heaven? But I am biased, and ever likely to remain so.”

15:30. One thing I like about dreams, is that if the dream seems negative or unpalatable, you can reject it, and swim against the tide, and choose a different path. I’ve done this in the past, and made decisions, based on this method, to avoid being prompted to move back to Banbury, or to stay in Kidlington, based on whether a dream seemed an invitation to paradise or a warning nightmare of hell.

19:41. http://www.bbc.co.uk/…/tomorrows-worlds-the-unearthly-histo…

My conclusion at the end of this, was that just as I have been labelled a theological “trainspotter”, I am also a sanctimonious, high-minded, over-intellectual, science-fiction nerd, but I’m NOT the only one!

21:48.I’m hoping for dreams that back up my wishes tonight, since I am not receptive to alternate wishes, and am not looking forward to the magnificent emotional desolation of either choosing emptiness or choosing an alternative.Of course, emptiness or an alternative might the only games in town, in which I have no choice but to opt for emptiness, since choosing an alternative would be a lie.
