REFLEXIONS of a DYSLEXIC MIND

The MIND - of one born to a TIME of rationing and austerity - which was subsequently

nurtured by family, friends and the experience of an early education in North London at

the time of the conquering of everest and the Coronation of a New Queen.

Reflexions of only having read one book of fiction prior to taking my eleven plus

examination to gain entrance to Borehamwood Grammar School - and subsequently

achieving enough GCE "O" & "A" level examination passes to be accepted by the Ministry

of Aviation as an Air Traffic Control Cadet - thus obtaining the so called yellow peril 

and subsequently getting married to my long-term partner and soul-mate.

Reflexions of a 20 year career in Air Traffic Control which started with a familiarisation

of computer systems based on an IBM System/360 64K CoreStore Mainframe - the

size of a block of flats - and spanned operational experience at London Radar/Heathrow,

Southern Radar at RAF Sopley, Eurocontrol - Brussels, Luxembourg, Maastricht UAC Beek

- and finally West Drayton as an Area Radar Controller and Flow Controller - before

leaving Air Traffic to become a director of Acorn Video whose systems were based on

the Acorn Business Computer, an advanced development of the BBC 32K Microcomputer.

Reflexions of good times working with the BBCMicrovitecOxford University Press,

Computer Integrated SolutionsImage-IN-ITiQual, and STL Technologies -

as the rate of change of every underlying component technology, of an ever developing

global system of communications, continued its once burgeoning geometric progress

to finally mutate into its latest exponential phase. 

Reflexions over the years of my overarching commitment to the "art of creativity"

and the struggle of the artistic dyslexic community - to collectively and individually

come to terms with our need to accept ourselves without fear - in the face of society's

status-quo mis-understanding of our dilemma ( "how could you, being a dyslexic,

possibly have worked as an air traffic controller ") - but ever aware of our different set

of skills and talents, because the connections in our brains are geared to a completely

different set of perspectives to the "lexic mainstream". 

The true importance of the dyslexic mind lies in its MIND strengths.

While not every individual with dyslexia enjoys all the MIND strengths,

most show one or more of these important abilities, and these strengths

often provide the keys to their success - Epilogue by Brock Eide, Fernette Eide 

The Dyslexic Advantage: Unlocking the Hidden Potential of the Dyslexic Brain

 

REFLEXIONS of a DYSLEXIC MIND in the form of A MATRIX of 49 tunnels

 

This MINDFULNESS Mind Map provides a matrix of 49 "tunnels" - designed for and by the masses -

allowing access to a place conducive to Coexistence, Cooperation and Collaboration - such that the

collective all-inclusive first person singular present tense, third person objective - point of view - will then

lead to the establishment of a new model & method of wealth creation, mutually beneficial to ALL.

I have spoken at length, throughout my zbloggings@gaia, about the urgent

need for a MIND-SET SWITCH from an  OLD  ORDER  to  NEW  ORDER

ENVIRONMENT; and had genuinely believed that, in their quest for more

open and transparent democratic representation, the PEOPLE's collective

influence over the MIND-SET of our new masters of the globe would be

sufficient to initiate the switch.

IT IS NOW apparent, however, in the light of the global events that have

taken place over the last six years and our new masters reactions to those

events, that NO BETTER understanding exists today in our masters

MIND-SET than pertained hitherto.

MATTERS have IN FACT got worse instead of better; to  the  extent that

IT appears to be as if the BIG PICTURE can ONLY BE “SEEN” through a

collection of word descriptions rather than a drawing and that any change

of interpretation of the drawing can ONLY be manifested by a change of the

definition of the words used to describe the BIG PICTURE, rather than take

“cogniscence” of Einstein's words … 

” IF I can't picture it, I can't understand it ”


NO THING
 happens in LIVING NATURE that is not in relation to

THE WHOLE as the BALANCED ECO-SYSTEM which Homo Sapiens

must now restore to ensure the survival of LIFE on EARTH.



As Leonardo da Vinci said ... 

Dreams are the passionate release of our souls, and in

them is the spirit contained  by which we should persevere

and fulfil our lives, so that in death we will have acquitted

our dues and not been envious of others.

 

ALL is in NATURE - WE are ALL a circumstance of NATURE

 


NO RESPECT for your environment - NO RESPECT for YOURSELF

In the context of "TIME BEING a RIVER" the river of reflexion which I am painting in my own

AlphaINDEX of Stories - consists of a one year, day by day cycle, of reflexions of connected

events of the life which was borne into this world by SHE who has finally passed the torch

IT is fitting, therefore, to thank you ALL for your kind remarks and to advise 

you particularly that I have cherished this solid brass statue and its intricate 

detail  for many a year as part of a collection which symbolises for me the 

passing of the torch - in the form of the seed amongst us zaadzsters et al - 

from Guatama Buddha to Mahakashyap and onwards from India to China,

China to India, India to Japan, Japan to the USA - and hopefully now  from the

USA to the WORLD.

THE most important lesson that I learnt at Borehamwood Grammar School - was that which was delivered to me by my English Literature teacher call Mr. Wilkinson. When discussing the concept of critical analysis & appraisal, I said that there were obviously two directly opposed categories of criticism - constructive & destructive - to which he replied never ever apologise for offering constructive criticism - while all those around you perceive ALL criticism to be destructive.

Reality is not just the bad; it is also the good.

The mind requires an awareness of both in order to work at its best.

 

For one who has conquered the mindthe mind is the best of friends,

but for one who has failed to do so, his/her very mind will be the greatest enemy.

- as Carl Jung so rightly stated -

THE most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.

When one considers the actions of our "masters of the globe" I invariably amuse

myself by thinking about Leonardo da Vinci's take on them, which was that they were -

"as wise as the wind they fart from their arses"

"The Idea That It Is POSSIBLE:  SUPER BRAIN ... Empathic Civilization"  Yes!
We can discover that super-positive imagination generates powerful fields of transformation.

ABSOLUTELY SO Michael 


"To journey, you must have eyes for the journey; if you don't have eyes, the baldies will set out used furniture from the past before you, putting big prices on them, boasting in a hundred ways that 
they are rare and marvellous treasures. You may lose your eyes and brain all at once; unable to get anywhere, you may not avoid being confused by them and getting into a bunch of antique curios, never to emerge."


Hsi-yen (1198-1262
