The Human Chaos Theory

The Human Chaos Theory is something I noted last year sometime and today in a rare moment of half clarity I can spend a few hours listening to music while watching both our Worlds go by from my view and add words to a though that we all think. I woke up from a bad dream if I remember or maybe a confusing dream and I left myself a little note called ‘The Human Chaos Theory’. Back then all I could think was the title, this morning on a cold Scottish morning again I woke up after a dream and I now have the words to place here, or least enough words to start, maybe you can add more?. I will try and put my point across as quickly as I can, because I know the human condition, it has little time in its hour of boredom to be awoken, it is self serving, egotistical, wanting for things they already have, we believe money will cure us, when in-fact money harms us, but we also have the capacity for love and a level of caring we claim to behold on each other, yet we lie, I have lied, so have you. Money harms us in our day to day, and it harms our World through many means on a daily basis. We see it on the TV News or any medium of information giving and gathering, we give it a name in a moment, then we want the very thing we see destroying our World, but this is not all about money, it’s about HOW YOU THINK AND WHY

“Shaun, why do think so deeply?” is a question I personally as a human have had to answer too many times to too many people, but today I answer back with love, the ONLY emotion I can bring to any table these days. What makes us unhappy? What makes you unhappy as you read this? What makes you unhappy today, what made you unhappy yesterday and all the yesterdays before it? What will make you unhappy tonight and tomorrow and all the tomorrows to come? That is the question, the only question I can ask. And I again, I ask the World, not just you, no, please! Don’t be so selfish to think this is ABOUT YOU. There is your first lesson on the ‘The Human Chaos Theory’, but please keep in mind, in this moment you might be happy, I am trying to understand what makes me happy and unhappy and I am starting to think in most cases I bring it all onto myself, the same as you do, the same as our species do, but why? We can be happy or sad, yet the emotion I see most is hate and anger in our World, this confuses me and I know I am not alone

I see people as I sit here slowly typing away, I can look out 2 windows, I just seen an old woman from around the corner with walking sticks happily walking her two dogs and I looked up, smiled and gave her a little wave, she smiled and waved back. THAT WAS A HUMAN MOMENT, it was free as it was honest and these are the moments I personally look for every day. I am not the same person as I was last week, never mind 20 years ago or a year ago, but neither are any of us the same person we were in any yesterday we care to look back at.

A old wise man tells me often “Shaun, I cry for humanity” and he does on his level, when I was younger he would say this and I would just take it as a passing comment, today I feel it too, so whoever this old wise man is, thank you from the bottom of my soul for forcing me to look around myself and my own soul. The ability to just sit back with utter clarity of mind and see a butterfly is something money can’t buy you or anyone you know. I wish I could be better enough in my soul to see more of these moments, and I used butterfly as 1 example from an endless list of examples including of course things I will never see or feel, but this should not stop me or you from striving to feel that moment again or try and ask “Can you feel these small moments we often miss because our mind was elsewhere”, if your mind is elsewhere, then ask why? You are in a good place, if you can read this you are one of the lucky ones. I could share hell on Earth with you, but we get scared of it, not till hell or bad comes to our doors do we question the suffering our World places on us all, by each other and by lifes forces, that I don’t think we as a species have figured out, we are a young species, we are growing so fast yet so slowly at the same time, can you see it or feel it? Or don’t you care? Whatever the answer is, that is ok, just don’t harm others in your logical conclusions

We are nasty to each other, I have been nasty to people. We are egotistical against each other’s and the reason I can admit this and say this is I have been ego myself. My God! Writing this blog alone will pull the human ego in and I WILL BE JUDGED. But why? What makes others judge what is not theirs when there is no need to judge? I see people with kids who focus on only their own kids, but I also see people with kids who focus on other people’s kids with many emotions attached. This confuses me a lot. I have two little girls who call me Daddy 100 times a day, you may have people who call you Mum or Dad too or maybe they are too young to name the love they have for you yet? It doesn’t matter however, just accept that love and own it, keep it and call it your own, but please World, don’t deny others this same love or freedom of spirit to evolve forward for a better them, aimed at a better World

Our World is evil, and I don’t add God or the Devil or the bible or scripture written by other humans many hundreds of years ago, but I do 100% respect others who will apply God to this and think of him as I did the butterfly. Am I making any sense to your soul yet? I don’t ask to be named, tagger or labelled, but I will be, but so will you be, you have been and you always will be by our ‘Human Chaos Theory’ that is destructive in our face as we see it on our TVs and Internet. I observe in the same way a comedian does, the same way a musical does, the same as any art form looking for inspiration to write or think freely to imagine a better World with better people. I am no saint, but I am aiming to become one. It took me 43 years of living with Humans to understand, or at least start to understand the flaws and imbalance in our species that loves to place hard emotions on each other but are selfish with our feelings too and deny others the freedom of love. I am a medicated man so what you read here today is from a Disabled person from 2017 trying to figure out a World not of my making, a species not of my doing, emotions thrown at me from birth the same as you, I try to think past them, I think sideways because I refuse to go back or forward, we live RIGHT NOW and nowhere else. Right this moment you are alive! Yesterday is a memory and tomorrow is a wish or a guess, realise it and accept it, and I promise you the fruits of the World can be yours TO SHARE

I KNOW ANGRY, BECAUSE I WAS ANGRY

I KNOW SUFFERING, BECAUSE I HAVE SUFFERED

I KNOW PAIN BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN IN PAIN

I KNOW HATE BECAUSE I HAVE BEEEN HATEFUL

I KNOW MONEY BECAUSE I HAVE HAD NONE

I HATE MONEY BECAUSE I HAVE HAD SOME

I LOVE MY KIDS BECAUSE I KNOW MY PARENTS LOVE

I UNDERSTAND THE DEPTHS OF HELL BECAUSE I HAVE DINED WITH THE DEVIL

I UNDERSTAND GODS LOVE BECAUSE I HAVE DECIDED TO FEEL HIS LOVE

I NEVER ASK GOD FOR ‘ANYTHING’, I THANK GOD, EVERY DAY, HAVE DONE SINCE I WAS A WEE BOY

I SEE A SPECIES SO LOST, BECAUSE I WAS ONCE LOST

I SEE PEOPLE CRAVE THINGS THEY ALREADY HAVE IF THEY JUST LOOK AROUND

I SEE EMPTY PEOPLE READY TO BE FILLED WITH LIFE, BECAUSE I HAVE BE BEEN LIFELESS

I SEE SHALLOW PEOPLE BECAUSE I WAS ONCE AN EMPTY VESEL OF A PERSON

BUT I SEE THE HOPE WE ALL SHARE FOR A BETTER WORLD BECAUSE I HAVE FELT ITS HOPE

I SEE WHAT WE CAN BECOME BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN WHAT WE ARE

I SEE THE BEAUTY IN A PERSON BECAUSE I HAVE FELT UGLY

I HAVE FELT UGLY BECAUSE OF MY BEATY, I HAVE FELT BY BEAUTY BECAUSE I FELT UGLY

I CHOOSE TO TRY BECAUSE I HAVE GIVEN UP, I CHOOSE TO SMILE BECAUSE I HAVE CRIED

I CHOOSE TO BE HUMAN AND CARING, BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN NASTY AND HURT PEOPLE

Now keep repeating these lines over and over, till they stick in your mind for life. Or keep doing as you are doing and hope you get a life you want. Either way you have a choice, you have a final say in this World. Many say “I can’t change the World”, I have said it myself, but I have changed MY WORLD many times, have you? And right there you felt the emotion of ‘boasting’, yet I was not boasting, I was sharing what we all can be. And that is a better human for you, your loves ones and also our fragile Earth. You can add more or you can mock my Worlds, all I know is I am now ready to face what the final chapters of my life have for me, but I have some say in what I will become. I am a very fragile man, but I ask for no help because I have taught myself I can be anyone, be anything. I can lay down and listen to a song and own it as my own, I can watch a movie that moved me and play the part. Why should we all stop doing these things now? It’s all we have ever been doing for the love of God. Unique is my goal, I can’t blend in to my World, but I do blend into The World. I am becoming the best version of Shaun I can be for other people, what about you? Whatever you choose to do, please don’t make others suffer while you do it because this emotion will one day drag you down to levels you have taken others. Choose to lift people up because one day you may need lifted, don’t leave yourself alone as I have. I may be too late to bring people I love back but I am at one with what I done, my door has a bell and you can also knock it, you can call me, you don’t have to be alone, alone is choice sadly. But when we have no choices, how can we choose? It is all hard to take in isnt it? But this is living I am told. So how do you judge your own actions as a person, or do you even judge yourself, the first person we should judge each day is ourselves, yet we throw our own selves away and cast our emotions on others. And that is the ‘The Human Chaos Theory’. THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT IS ALL WE HAVE, lets choose to live today and accept the future as we build it together. Forget Politicians as they lie, Religion is your own call, if your heart has fear who am I to stop you connecting to God in your way? The very things that divide us are there for all to see, but the only thing left that can unite us is below in a song, and to the right hand side of this as you read it, I plant seeds in my own mind before I can even try and help another. Define away, but first define your own. The only emotion used in this 3 hours typing marathon was LOVE. But I ask, what did you feel? Only you can cause chaos and fit another emotion, or just feel love, YOU HAVE THE CHOICE. Start to apply and then you can never again deny

MORE LOVE, LESS HATE

I Will ♫ Hurt ♪ You! I am done trying. I don’t understand the Human Species

Do-not-hurt-each-other

Tonight as my family are at a party, I am not. It was my choice, but a choice forced through pain. I dropped my girls at the party and drove home, made a cup of tea and a friend called  on Twitter had tagged me and a few others into a song. I hadn’t heard this song for many a year and I watched it and it’s lyrics and I felt every word, the song and lyrics are in a video below and they fit perfect for my mind in this moment. Sympathy seems to be what people think what I want in life. The facts are I make friends and then they go away, I send them away, hurt them, and I hide. Before I was in the World, a part of living, out most nights doing things I was passionate about, and here I am on self destruction mode again. I don’t have a ‘Death Date’ sadly, I have been pain for 17 years now, a pain I am told that is similar to someone moments from Death with Aids or Cancer. I never thanked the Hospital Dr for telling me that because placebo can play tricks on the human mind. I hurt people, I walk away from people and it’s my choice. Thing is, I HATE MYSELF FOR DOING WHAT I DO. 006_LifeIsNotMeasured.11I have 3 disabilities and in the end I am just always playing the sympathy ‘Disabled Card’ But never with intention. The pain I am in just now would drive many to suicide and it does. I won’t do that. But I must maybe leave or go and find something I can connect with, because all I do is hurt the people I love and almost kill people who look at me the wrong way. This is my blog, my page, my words. They are mine to keep and to own, please, if you don’t like them then don’t reply, go fuck off. If you are a friend talk to me in private or something. I am sick of being this version of myself. I WILL HURT YOU, I am going through hell, no matter what I do or say I hurt people. The disability acted for me and people walked away from me. Thanks for understanding pain and hurt! I know everyone has a story, hurt, pain, an issue, a life, I GET THAT. But I remember a World where people actually fucking cared. I am sorry to swear but I don’t belong with this species, I know several people like me, they are not ill, they are just people I love to talk to, some in my life, some on-line as is today’s ways when we embrace social media. I don’t get the Human Special, I feel Alien to you all. But I don’t hate, PLEASE remember that. Also my pain is typing for me here, my lack of medication is acting for me here.

Ain’t life a motherfucker? 😀

TOTAL EMERGENCY ALERT Update: Global Meltdown Begins

staHeaderPicMohawkNet

I have never been Alex Jones biggest fan, I was always of thinking he was a Government Shill, paid by Government to alarm and make us fear globally. Lately I have seen my own country Scotland waking up and mentioned it a year or so ago. Scotland – Is Our World Waking Up To Corporate Greed? <Click) So what do we make of this Scotland and people reading all over the World? I believe our World is about to change, I won’t go as far as say “End of the World” but I can’t be sure. Ark’s are being build globally by the rich elite, please research this on your own. I asked the question last week. 4 Blood Moons to occur on Jewish Feast Days between April 15th-September 28th <Click) This was taken ok I guess. I have said now for almost a decade this was coming, I told 10 years ago the ‘Elite’ run this World, now THANKFULLY Scottish bloggers and posters are saying what I have for many years. Scotland WILL be free before this happens. I don’t think this is the end of our species but I think the signs I have spoken about before are now happening. The World is dropping the US Dollar, people are running into Europe from the US/UK/Israel run Islamic State, some call them immigrants, in reality these poor people are refugees. Watch this video please!! I will post more when I have it, or should I say, when I know I am safe to post. If you have a God, pray. If you have safe-haven, just put into place something you can escape from. Something is happening and I have 4 different versions. For now I leave you Alex Jones actually speaking BRILLIANTLY. Please RESEARCH everything I say and Alex says. Also tweets from people like you and I. We are waking up, Military and Cops stand with us, DO KNOW THIS! Also, heads up here, the Islamic State are acting as refugees and coming to Europe via this way, they will be in the Americas also. Islamic State <Click) is playing a game here and nobody seems to be noticing, well not many people. Can you see it?

The Hypocritical Human Species

maxresdefaultHad a really good day today, was my daughters 6th birthday, my 2 sons and my future daughters in laws, their partners. Dawn the girls and myself. I am totally shattered now, mentally and physically I am gone, the last 2 weeks have been ‘Normal’ for everyone, for me, well tonight I feel it. I won’t take it back; it was worth every moment of pain

seal-killing-canada

Nearing midnight and Tuesday here and I have sat all sore and, not moody, just wanting peace I guess. Not because of who was here earlier, I just need time to stick some music on and let it alter my brain patterns and this will in-turn take some pain away

WWFLUNGS

enpa-dog-spray-perfume-600x393

Then I started thinking about pain, my Daughters presents, presents we all exchange for Birthdays and Christmases. Then I asked myself “How do they know the make up a woman wears now is safe?” or “How do they know the deodorant I wear now is safe?” How do we know what we buy is safe to use? Simply the answer is simple, animal testing. Yeah as a species none are like us Humans who kill for sport, for fun. People complain when they see the disturbing images I share below but let’s be honest if any of us moan or complain about how we treat the animal kingdom, truly that is the height of hypocriticalness

865bc9bd19efa8e6480e1881528f4e11We consume meat and don’t care where it comes from. We wear fancy clothes and don’t think where it came from or who made it. We go and bath or shower and the products we use we take for granted as if they just appeared from thin air. Sadly now, the images below will tell the story I am trying to tell. As a species I often am ashamed to call myself Human when I see the suffering we do to other species. Facts are we are not the brightest of species are we? More than half of us believe we are governed through our soul by an invisible made up force. I don’t get you, I don’t get me. Where I am going here is we have a World full of people just sitting waiting to be offended, willing to take as much truth as they can handle, people willing to hear and see the truth but only enough till it shatter’s their beliefs and reason for being on this Earth. I won’t name names or call names. If anyone can argue with my thinking here I really don’t know how you can. We are an evil species. We look back to our ancestors and see how we burnt people in fire, drowned others in rivers, cut others open, our past human species is the most brutal and severely disillusioned species there is on this planet, but look at our species today, are we REALLY any better? We burn people alive, we cut heads off; Government still kill in some countries if people break the law, laws passed by people in the first place, we are barbaric, we eat, dress, wash but don’t understand often the things we hate we buy into, we consume into. I am just voicing here, others will have opinions and that is fair, we should all be allowed opinions unless, of course that opinion offends. Why is it 90% of Earth want to see one part of our species recognized yet the remaining 5% don’t get why the 95% see it different? I know the answer and so do you. I don’t want to debate JUST Palestine, but we can use it as an example of how stupid our species are, why wait? Free them now, they WILL be free soon anyway and no wars will be fought. I know this will shatter belief systems but maybe as a species we need ‘Different’ maybe people need to be pulled into reality, a war, bad things to truly understand why others care. I live my life in utter agony yet I still care enough to sit here with burning hands and wrists because this is how I see the bigger picture, these are my opinions based on living, seeing, researching, listening, opening my mind, I do NOT HATE, I want love, peace and more. Yet a SPECIAL FORCE has brainwashed the majority Worldwide and made peace a dream, that is the sad part, sad in the sense we are all sad people for not speaking up and standing up. Often I think “Am I alone in all I say and share here? And for the record, this is not aimed at the USA, how can one of the smallest area’s on Earth cause all this damage? This is a human species issue, you me, your friends, my friends, their friends and friends they don’t know from other friends. We are all culpable once we gain choice, we mask it well, we do a few good deeds to make up for the vastness of our evil’s

I ask “Are you wearing makeup of perfume?” I ask “Are you wearing hair gel or cream or deodorant?

Fossil discovery suggests humans may be half a million years older than we thought

A 2.8 million-year-old jawbone might be about to rewrite our family tree.

A 2.8 million-year-old jawbone might be about to rewrite our family tree.

Via: http://www.sciencealert.com/fossil-discovery-suggests-humans-may-be-half-a-million-years-older-than-we-thought? Video added, my own words/thoughts and as always links at the bottom of the article from other sources

This is why I research what I do, this is why I love to find new stories, new stories about our species. I am a man of Science, I believe one day Science will prove our past as Humans one way or another. This jaw bone is 2.8 Million years old and is Human. This surely re-writes much of what we know or knew about the Human species. It is now thought climate change is a big factor in Human history, Apes are now thought to have climbed down from tree’s and exploited the ground and found ways to protect from harsh weather. This of course is if you believe in Evolution. My only issue with evolution purely from a scientific point of view is simple, if we came from Apes, why do we still have apes and what came before apes? This is of course the missing link. I always follow finds of any real significance and I have left a few directly below this, some totally amazing, also are there Religious ramifications here? Just asking

‘First human’ discovered in Ethiopia
Via robin show on You Tube

Researchers working in Ethiopia have unearthed the oldest human fossil ever, and the discovery could push back the origin of the Homo genus by half a million years. The lower jaw fossil has been described in two simultaneous papers published in Science today (here and here), and is helping to shed some light on the mysterious origin of our human family in eastern Africa. The fossil, which was first found in 2013, has been dated to around 2.8 million years old, at least 400,000 years older than any previous Homo fossil.

“There is a big gap in the fossil record between about 2.5 million and 3 million years ago – there’s virtually nothing relating to the ancestors of Homo from that time period, in spite of a lot of people looking,” co-author of the study Brian Villmoare from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas told Charles Q. Choi from Live Science. “Now we have a fossil of Homo from this time, the earliest evidence of Homo yet.” Excitingly, the fossil was found extremely close to the last known remnants of Australopithecus afarensis, a hominid species that many researchers believe was the direct ancestor of the Homo genus. A. afarensis is best known from the skeleton, Lucy.

Only around 200,000 years separate the remains of Lucy and the newly discovered Homo jaw bone, known as LD 350-1, and it helps to paint a clearer picture than we’ve ever had before about our heritage. “This is exciting stuff,” palaeoanthropologist Donald Johanson, who discovered Lucy, told Jamie Shreeve from National GeographicThe researchers aren’t sure as yet if the new jaw bone belongs to a new species, or to a known, extinct human species, such as Homo habilis. The morphology of the bone seems to suggest that it was an intermediay species, with the tell-tale teeth cusp patterns and jaw proportions of a Homo species, but the sloping chin of Australopithecus.  “This narrows the time period in which we can now focus our search for the emergence of the human lineage,” Bill Kimbel, director of the Institute of Human Origins at Arizona State University in the US, told Shreeve. “It’s very much a transitional form, as would be expected at that age. The chin looks backwards in time. But the shape of the teeth looks forward.” The National Geographic team has created a really useful illustration below showing where the new jawbone, LD 350-1, fits in our family tree.

The researchers were able to date the fossil by analysing the radioactive isotopes in layers of volcanic ash above and below it, Villmoare told Choi. “This find helps place the evolution of Homo geographically and temporally – it tells us where and whenHomo evolved,” he added. On its own, the find is exciting enough, but another paper was also published inNature today, which suggests that an important Homo habilis fossil, which is currently believed to be the oldest known Homo species, had an unexpected mix of primitive and advanced traits. This makes it a potential match for the new LD 350-1 fossil. “These findings raise more questions than they answer,” Villmoare told Choi. “Hopefully these questions will be answered by further fieldwork.”
