PostSubject: The Tree of Life   Sat Sep 09, 2017 7:47 pm

I decided to forfeit my boycott of youtube to be able to still publish my Tree of Life series.
I decided this after having made this new episode and just wanted to put it in the playlist with the others.

All this after I realized I can't claim to quit youtube because I won't stop watching it.

All very Geburic insights and developments.

Yeah, YouTube is pretty addictive. I visit it often, mostly for music.

Addictive it isnt, to me. I am addicted only to writing. I will watch youtube videos when someone links them. I dont wanna stop doing them the courtesy or myself the possible pleasure of watching and I actually have some followers of my tree of life videos.

I recommend watching this one. God is not involved. I even proclaim myself non relgious.

Too long for me to watch. My attention span is about 5 minutes. After that I get restless.

But I'm glad for you continuing your efforts in an area of your interests.

Hehehe. So you are now non-religious, are you? It really doesn't matter to me. I just prefer to not talk about religions. But I do philosophy.

A 5 min attention span is a bit low, man. You need to take some walks in fresh air.

All clear now. Irma made a mess in my front yard but that will be easy to clean up. The winds did me a job in the back and that will take some time to recover from. No serious damage though. No flooding as my property is on a small hill at an elevation of 48 feet.

You are likely right. I do get outside for fresh air but don't walk very often. (My broken hip didn't repair well enough for me to go on leisure walks any more.)

Old age isn't pretty.

Something Taoist perhaps. Limited time constraints may force more concentration of value.

From what I've read of Tao Te Ching it's basically ontology.

Yeah. Especially once one has grasped the concepts in the Tao Te Ching and then starts reading the Chuang Tzu.

I don't suffer on your account, my friend. But I too maintain the liberty to be as truthful as I want to be.

My videos are my art, I do the very best I can, on the subjects that are most part of me, in which I know with absolute honesty.
People do indeed quite often suggest I go and make an artwork that they would like to see. I sometimes think "oh thats pretty cool" but basically my feeling is then "yeah, do that, Id check it out".

So... would be pretty cool if you and Thrasymachus made that video. Maybe you can show him the content, and he can forge it into a video of some 5 minutes. The basics of editing are simple, and he is a strong artist. Id definitely give that a go if it was made. But Ive never worked on commission let alone for free to use my art to tell a story someone else sees in his mind, rather than one that I see.

If my stories are not appreciated here, then they are appreciated elsewhere.... thats the way it goes.
I do appreciate you giving them all a try even if you had already seen a bunch you didn't like, Ive found that very refreshing.

Keep commenting, by all means. But T is giving you false hopes - I will never in my life set myself to art except from my own most unconditioned valuing; I don't exactly pick subjects just because they're interesting. One could say that they pick me.

I often don't even know why it is important I make something, I just know it gets to be nearly as important as breathing after a while. Thats what was happening the days before this last video on Geburah, my most mature work on politics so far, of which I am very proud, and was more than a bit scared as it took shape. It is not a message anyone wants to hear - and yet it is the first message of true hope for Europe in perhaps a century.

In Nietzschean terms, it means the work can begin.

Really, I am very good at a particular style, or at several maybe, but a docu on Taoism or, as T has expressed much interest in, on Jordan Peterson, would not be something Id know how to make. With Taoism, I think what isn't readily available already can only be learned in lifetime of mostly silent practice, and what is attempted to reveal of the most heartfelt insights, tends to ruin the insight. As the Tao is subtle.

T - you really should give it a try - download Sony Vegas, absolutely the best there is. If you don't make profit on your work its okay to use a crack. If you make profit, just buy the program when you can afford.

You've expressed some good ideas for films to me and you say I would be the one to be able to make them - but really, is that the. case? You know how art is - it happens to you. It is you.

And I stand by my maxim that one only can understand to the degree that one values.

No, I realize thats nonsense, most likely. You are of course rather busy.

I would never want to cause you suffering. And I believe you are being truthful to us as well as to yourself.

I understand what you are saying. It's just that I cannot go there as it is not one of my capabilities.

And yes, follow your true nature. That is one of the key concepts of Taoism. (The hard part of that is that we must determine what is our true nature as opposed to what others have caused us to become.)

Yes, Tao is subtle. But it is not hidden. All we have to do is look out our window and - - - there it is. The only role we have is to make sure we do not add our subjective to Tao's objectivity.

(Some things we see aren't going to be pretty.)

I would very much enjoy learning to make films. But yes I tend not to have a lot of free time, or free money. Had to wait 24 hours to buy more cigarettes on account of money, that was a rough 24 hours.

Thanks S.

C - to be able to edit youll not need to spend any cash..I didnt until I was in tbe profession and decided to indulge Apple with buying tbe program I had been using, FCP.

Sony Vegas is the most userfriendly as well as powerful consumer editing suite for windows. Then of course you do need a pc, i dont know if you have one atm, i just realize you usually write on your phone.

But, assuming you have one, think about it. It would be very nice.
