mastering the turn

A reaction is manipulatible, being of a nature easily manipulated.

Mendacity is very manipulatible, for a pattern emerges within torture.

Stomp goes into the bathroom to stomp if I run the water there. He goes into the kitchen to stomp if I run the water there. So when I want peace to work on fixing a computer, I send him to the bathroom or the kitchen by running the water.

Manipulation. Dog herding the cattle. Reactive states. Reaction. Is not a coincidence that one of the first things a sedative does, is take away reaction.

Predictive reaction.

Created by want
By need

Child wants the candy
Eat your dinner and you can have the candy
Finish school and you can have the job
Use beauty products and you can have the man

Manipulation based on desire
What does a person want?

So is it about getting others to do what you want
Or is it about….
the want of others leading them to do what you will?

the master manipulators
we have goals
the ambiguity behind purpose

tactic my whole life has been to avoid being a victim of manipulation
by not wanting anything; by having no preset-desires
nothing cut and dry

a world of make-do
manage what you have not what you wish you had
what is a slave?
i liked this explanation by an electronics engineer
about how electricity is always looking for ground
looking for REST
and the way a circuit and the way a computer works
is you deny it rest
make it transverse eternal mazes
before it can go back around and transverse more
doing our work
our thinking …. in some ways
the computer is the ultimate torture machine
for the charged particle…..

manipulated into unbelievable feats
all because it never doubts what it wants
always wants REST

so what does a human want
how is that manipulated …. SLAVES
to this and that
to ideas in many ways – to the logic and idealism of others
to determinations of best
and behavior suited

some day it might be different
what if beds were a cradling hole in the floor …
what if homes only had a rooftop in place in bad weather
what if people always stood on their heads when they gathered?

what if asking for something meant wanting it
what if prayer enforces need
what if need then enforces manipulation

what if time is not spent well thinking this,
typing this
what if my best or better day is spent on a walk
or getting work done
the back burners are piling up and smoking in a bonfire….

so manipulation can be an evil thing
is not mentioned in the evils….
those are greed and laziness and hate

manipulation has even manipulated itself off of the list!

oh what a world
mostly i look …. and grin


so the rain allows to breathe
deep rhythm with the grass of green
and hushing reverie; drought ends.
air a gift of cool relief,
the day a nom de plume

that rises,

in gusts remind me wind will dry old tears
as rain reminds me every hope is (was always) here:
brought to the fore,
no other one has reached in tender
odds of grace.
a silent place
has every noise of ones before,
and if i held my breath

it was the all to listen for the all;
inside is naught but gall!
while dreams
set to a plate are nailed through abject promises.
but ends, never the same and
while i know how want confirms repast,
there is no hope that longly ever lasts.
truth rippled-slow with blame:

time was not, yet now the was is much.
beside me, conquest smiles with heaven’s touch.


How likely are you to recommend this build of Windows 10 to a friend or colleague?

it’s looking better, am still not happy with touchpad driver support. i try using spartan but it fails to perform so end up going back to IE. initial load time for most apps from the store is inordinately long. the integration between “settings” and “control panel” has gotten better. the notification sounds are excellent.

unless drivers improve, need setting for intermediate user to disable auto-driver-install. also, update is buggy yet. says needs to restart and then install process remains at 0%. puts up a “restart now or will automatically restart at xx:xx pm” and then does not restart at that time, nor does it finish installing. so i interrupt my work and wait, and update does nothing. clicking on some notifications in notification window creates no result. if the notification is moot, needs to either be marked by system as completed, or a right-click response or something … anything. as is, makes it look like notification programming is broken or buggy. and makes the user rush to click on it when it comes up, which i know the time frame for that has been reduced. the combination of no response and quick notification window creates a kind of game. most users don’t want a game when they are trying to get some work done.

and that’s about it. i would like to see options for limiting auto-start programs return (real ones, not the bogus task manager UI). also we need a way to alert users when a program is installing “extras” like adobe flash tries to install mcaffee, java tries to install, etc. if somebody could figure out an answer to that, could save a lot of headaches for a lot of people. let those bottom fish die, it’s not worth the hassle. pay them directly to NOT add extra programming, lol.

so be well, and have a good launch.


measuring desire

what is smart?
smart people will do stupid things
stupid people will do smart things
is a people smart?

in the details
you get an iq test
how smart is the person who
wrote the test?
many people? so what
intelligence doesn’t improve with numbers

there is survival
survival is smart
but so is compassion
how do we quantify knowledge
when the data is present now
in a computer

doesn’t help if you yourself cannot
process information

so is the era of the processor
the deliberator
the scholar with infinite knowledge

have to be able to collate it

brace the next move

smart or not smart?
the joke is that it all reflects
all shines from other angles

i think the smartest thing to be is to do what you can
not what you may
it is smart to find hesitation
is smart to give others time, space, and continuation
is smart to hold onto money
is smart to let it go

the very smartest thing you can be
is to tell yourself everyday that you are smart
or that’s the dumbest thing
(my processor gets confused)

point is that YOU don’t tell you
others don’t tell you (they always lie)
what tells a person they are smart?

pride takes the longer path
grace forgets the journey

the smartest person
will be the one who can figure out
what to google

and that is the most complex test
where all tests
only test
who wants the goal more

do you want it badly enough?
i was never

i just wanted it more
i google ten different ways
to find the answer
i keep going back
reform the question
until i get to something
that informs enough
to help

is that smart?
could say the smartest thing
is to google once and be done with it

so wanting something badly is not-smart?
yet those who want
the goal more
are most likely to get it….

how do we quantify getting as smart?


the flower may seem drooping
like it’s weighted from the world…
all the tears of heaven
dressing petals seamed of blue

but on the morrow
with the sun
a flower will unfurl

and show time to be a little thing
that rains upon us all

life and grace and power and worth
a small investment of this earth
for ends become and are

yet for now it only waits
to rise her face and offer supplicant
to day and days that dream
