lemme howdt is a poet, a bard, a healer and a scientist.  He occupies his own mind and is working on grounding at two points at the same time in diverse places.  Quantum mechanical tunneling on a human level.  I invite you to visit Existence - a site that documents my personal shift, which was started with a vision quest in 2007. 

The Occupy movement has provided more voices for change - we all need a fresh start in a fair and equitable system - not everybody equal, but everybody considerate of everybody else.  I am young enough to play - so are you - if we are to take life too seriously, then we must laugh at ourselves. 

Peace, humor, love, change - I enjoy working with you all.

Base Assumptions

Posted on December 13, 2011 at 12:45pm 0 Comments

The Occupy movement is only the beginning in a constant battle for change.  The old system is coming down, but we really do not know what a new system will bring.  Economics is a farce - bail me out with an unlimited amount of paper so that i can loan it to you for interest - yeah, right.  But barter will not work either, because we are too used to having a price tag denominated in dollars.  The dollars are artificial  the whole power structure needs to change.

Hi, please join my discussion on democratic systems.I think I recall your saying that it is an interest of yours?

Hi, pleased to meet you and would love to hear your ideas. I would love to participate in a thread on alternate systems of government because it isn't an area I understand that well. It's going to have to wait until after Christmas for me because I am getting far behind in tasks. I will look forward to it. :)

A PhD in chemistry, eh?  So if we want the Occupy movement to be a catalyst for change, maybe you can work out the formula?!

Tamera for Tomorrow: A Model for the 99% and Creating Just and Environmentally Sustainable Communities

Lets speak to the deep meaning of the vampire myth in relationship to modern day.  How many people, especially many of us rationalized liberals, realize that myth speaks to reality.   Our issue in not understanding is our lack of an intelligent understanding of metaphor, which epistemologist Gregory Baetson defines as “a language…See More
