"Original and Featureless Face"
You cannot describe it or draw it,
You cannot praise it enough or perceive
it. No place can be found in which to put
the Original Face; It will not disappear even when the universe is destroyed.
IT WAS during the early 1980’s that Michael established his reputation as a guru
of Interactive Multimedia Communications, as a consultant to Acorn Computers and the BBC Computer Literacy Project, whilst still employed in the U.K. by the Civil Aviation Authority as an operational Air Traffic Controller.
He was deeply involved in the BBC Domesday Project and absolutely instrumental in Apple’s move into this area of activity. His involvement with the original St. Louis Zoo Project and the development of the concept of a Multimedia Resource Centre in the Art and Design faculty of Wolverhampton Polytechnic, led to the establishment of an educational resource centre at the Zoo, which became a significant pre-cursor to Nicolas Negreponte’s One Laptop Per Child initiative.
He has continued, in this vain, to sow the seeds of wealth creation, from both perspectives of the mobius-strip-like journey of life, with greater emphasis on the dissemination of the wisdom of knowledge which results from the wealth of understanding.
Extremely dyslexic, Michael has developed innovative ways of thinking which help him to adapt to social conventions of thought and action, as well as to provide both brilliant alternatives and brilliant assists to them. His significant intellectual insight is that people think in pictures as effectively as they think in words.
WHO AM I …
I am a student of consciousness.
I am a dyslexic who has travelled the “world of the lexics ” - in order to prove to myself that there are indeed methodologies of communication beyond “words”, that HOMO SAPIENS has to adopt - as part of the global skill-set which IS needed to assist nature in the qualitative advancement of the evolution of LIFE on earth.
"I am what I look like. These six little words are big enough to cover the whole reason for our plight. They say it all. Or, to elaborate somewhat: I am here, for myself, what I look like over there, to you - as if our distance made no difference! On this morass you and I try to build our lives. No wonder they are cracking up. To render them safe and sound we must rebuild them on the bedrock of I am what I see I am here; what you see is just one of my regional appearances. I alone, at centre, am in a position to say what those myriad appearances are appearances of, and how different they all are from the one Reality that's given rise to them, from what I am looking out of. On this I am the sole and final authority."
"See what at this very moment your own face looks like - the Face you had
before you, or indeed your parents, were born - there is NO THING hidden.
If you look within and recognize your own ‘Original Face', all secrets are in you."
WHAT DO I DO …
I am working with ALL of those who would to establish an internetwork
of networks of Thinking Environments to service the mutually beneficial
needs & aspirations of … Global Social Responsibility.
You have to be a warrior, you have to be an exemplar, even though you know that you're not perfect. So you have to deal with the reality of your human frailty, with the inherent contradictions in your character, and still be bold and brave enough to be willing to take responsibility for all of this.
If you do, then the power of spirit will enter into your heart, your body, and your mind and you will begin to express That, in spite of all your imperfection. And then you, as a human being, don't have to be perfect, because Spirit already is.

First quantum computer to pack 100 qubits
IBM’s newest quantum-computing chip packs in 127 quantum bits (qubits), making it the first such device to reach 3 digits. But the achievement is only one step in an aggressive agenda boosted by billions of dollars in investments across the industry. IBM and other companies — including the technology behemoths Google and Honeywell, and a slew of well-funded start-ups — ultimately aim to make quantum computers capable of performing certain tasks that are out of reach of even the largest supercomputers that use classical technology.

faces are a reflection of the soul
My avatar is a bronze and ceramic bust created by a dyslexic artist friend - & represents for me the everlasting light which eminates from within as a result of allowing GOD to be GOD from inside of ONE SELF.
As my zaadz profile explains - I was raised in the Church of England - but my left handed, gemini & dyslexic disposition - ambidextrocity happens as a result of left-handers living in a right-handed world - allowed me to question what I was been encouraged to think, believe & know as TRUTH.
The vast majority of priests & politicians - and their latter day cohorts the scientists & academics - have conspired to manipulate the juxtoposition of the past and the future to blind the populace to the REALITY of the HERE & NOW - and in so doing prevent each and everyone of us from having the essence of ZEN experience which Eckhart Tolle refers to as - walking along the razor's edge of NOW.
It is THE art of ZEN indeed - purely as a mechanism of understanding - that has made me a better believer in Jesus as Jesus, NOT Jesus as Christ and as such realise that he was indeed only one of a whole line of prophets expounding the word of god - and yet very concise in his reference to the Kingdom.
I also acknowledge that - a new life IS, in this age, stirring within all the peoples of the earth - which of course is the Kingdom of GOD - but in view of the fact that - Racism originates not in the skin but in the human mind. Remedies to racial prejudice, xenophobia and intolerance must accordingly address first and foremost those mental illusions that have for so many thousands of years given rise to false concepts of superiority and inferiority among human populations.
At the root of all forms of discrimination and intolerance is the erroneous idea that humankind is somehow composed of separate and distinct races, peoples or castes, and that those sub-groups innately possess varying intellectual, moral, and/or physical capacities, which in turn justify different forms of treatment.
The reality is that there is only the one human race. We are a single people, inhabiting the planet Earth, one human family bound together in a common destiny • a single entity created from one same substance, obligated to “be even as one soul” • and that I have always believed that HOMO SAPIENS as part of the ONE entity comprises - individuals, families of individuals, a nation of families & a ...
… my own SOUL on Earth destiny is to act as catalyst in the process of establishing a mechanism to allow ALL 6.5 billion on Earth to avail themselves of the opportunity to make the switch - such that when the switch has been affected by the majority of SOULs on Earth - an organic change in the structure of present-day society, a change such as the world has not yet experienced - would be produced.
AND YET …. sometimes I would just prefer to be ….
LOL… That is the first step…. to being….
The man who planted trees was, of course, a manifestation of being …
as a result of his ACTION of assuming responsibility for the planting
of the “seeds”.
TO BE + ACTION ≡ [BE]ing
well synchronicity I guess. i have been reading and link to link. I think it might have started at maze’s blog but here I am. As a coincidence I am presently reading Douglas Harding’s book, Look For Yourself. I think I
just recently read that very passage. I find his book amazing.
DESTINY IS that which one discovers …
IF every opportunity, with which you are faced,
IS responsibly acted upon in all humility.
IT was Douglas Harding’s DESTINY to experience the mountains
which led to his absolute understanding of THE MIND.
FATE IS what you are faced with if you don’t
I some how missed this before but found it just now from your message about synchronicity.
I read the blog on Douglas Harding.
I am still reading his book. almost finished. I like having it with me.
I have to read that other one about heaven and earth.
BEING and BECOMING as ONE with GOD
