On this channel I'm [email protected], mindsblogging the news since 2016. On @GailMcGowanMellor, under my own name, I'm writing an unauthorized history of Minds as it unfolds. An investigative reporter with a Pulitzer'nomination (rare for an independent), a medical writer (who founded a cooperative medical writing company with clients on three continents), and teacher (I taught in high school and college and was an early coordinator in the un-schooling movement), I've been a political activist since the early 1960s, because "inactive citizen" is an oxymoron. On a computer since 1977, I've been on the web since it was born in 1989. With courageous, adventurous children out changing the world, having just helped raise a grandson, with my husband aka best friend, I founded a small community in an improbable oasis that we're working to save in the midst of a metro area. There, the guy I love creates anything that I can imagine, and I grow things and write... Channel Policy: Doxxers and spammers -- including thread hijackers endlessly bleating about unrelated pet projects or hatreds -- are at minimum boring. Bug out. All others: thank you so much for being here. Documented disagreement is terrific. So are discoveries. So is laughter....
i think I might know the reason why people, even those who think we live in some kind of matrix(and i think those people are onto something), always feel so disconnected. It`s because, people believe they are in the machine. They think they are this thing which is so separate from the machine that they themselves feel alienated. They feel like a lonely island atop a vast, infinite ocean that separates every individual entity, when in reality, they are actually that which connects the island and the ocean. They are the part of the machine that works because of the inner workings of the machine. You are not the part of the machine that makes it function but rather the functioning of the machine. Our consciousness, is not the river that is flowing, but rather the flowing of the river. We are the apertures of light through which the true state, the true innate, raw, meaningless dark data of the universe, can be put to use and turned into something of substance. We are the apertures of light that shine through the darkness of the functioning of the machine. In short, we are not just the consciousness of our own bodies, but the consciousness of the Universe itself.
