One of the unsaid rules of life is that we all want control and believe that we have control. But control is just an illusion. We only seem to see the illusion when the things we take for granted are taken away from us. Recognizing that we have little control sometimes forces us into a place of surrender. In today's monologue, I explore how losing control can bring us to our knees and help us to accept what is, while handing over the script of our lives to something far greater than our individual lives.
We've all had that sense that everything happens for a reason !
In this brief monologue, I explore how some ETs seem to be able to time travel and enter the afterlife. I offer a metaphor that I think might help you to make some sense of how they do this, using my own experiences with my ET friends as examples.
TSM85 : Everything You’ve Been Told About Chronic Illness is Wrong - A Systemic View of the Root Causes of Disease and Chronic Illness
In this monologue I challenge the current paradigms of western and alternative medicine, with a systemic view of the root causes of disease and chronic illness. I use my own illness as an example and demonstrate how one thing connects to another, in the development of illness.
In this evening monologue I talk a little about my recent struggle and how it arose out of my hypersensitivity to drama and others suffering, how the idea of asking ETs a set of fixed questions is only a nice idea and is never a reality. I offer up 10 fictional questions for God and 5 spontaneous methods that you can use to connect with God and ask your own questions.
I made this monologue a few weeks ago while waiting for my son to run an errand. In this talk I explore the idea of using sound to alter consciousness, in particular the ideas put forth in David Hendy's book "Noise".
In this monologue (which I recorded before my going into hospital) I ruminate on the nature of light - what it might be, how it works and what it does to us.I don't know anything about physics but I have a sense that our scientists have it all wrong.
In today's wofflathon, I lead you through some thoughts about the value of the audio medium for story telling. In so doing I discuss why we share stories and podcasts, what's behind our drive to tell stories and to share them, the value of stories, the power of audio stories, audio as a carrier of memory, sharing through audio, audio signatures of places, people, animals and plants and the engineering of soundscapes.
TSM80 : Choppy school, faith and trust in the power of life, The 5 Remembrances, life’s impermanance and uncertainty
In today's monologue I explore the issue of faith and trust and reflect on what we can learn from young lambs and old ladies, about the power of will and our desire to live. I also reflect on the 5 Remembrances, life's impermanence and uncertainty.
TSM79 : Social memory and recording, the future of information storage and personal and family archives
In today's monologue I talk briefly about our need for social memory and how we record different parts of our lives and reflect on how information storage is likely to change and what this means for our personal and family archives. Think of this as a simple introduction to the subject. One man rambling on about how he sees things ! At a future time I'll go into detail about the potential nature of future information systems as I see them and the potential implications of super storage systems and super fast technologies.
