compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion


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 mainframe

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, on

the North Side of Heathrow Airport 

Southern Radar 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 director

of Acorn Video whose systems were based on the Acorn Business Computer,

an advanced development of the BBC 32K Microcomputer and a precursor to

the Advanced Research Machine Project which has NOW transmogrified into

the ongoing development of the ARM microcomputer chip, the first of which

[IS] installed into my soulmate's Apple iPhone.

Reflexions of the good times when working with Acorn the BBCMicrovitec,

Oxford University PressComputer Integrated SolutionsImage-IN-IT,

iQual, which was a hive off from INTEL in the 1990s 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 enactment

of the "art of creativityand 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 subsequently 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

 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 Storiesconsisting 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 entirety of all the peoples of all the nations of 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 and 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.

"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."

Capita plc announces that it has acquired STL Technologies Limited (‘STL’) for an undisclosed sum. STL provides software and ICT to the criminal justice system, including courts and the police, and to asylum and immigration tribunals.

STL specialises in case management applications and currently provides Equis case management for Her Majesty’s Court’s Service, Libra case management for the Ministry of Justice, national case management and accounts for the Scottish Courts’ Service and case preparation and custody applications for West Midlands Police.

Andy Parker, Capita plc’s joint chief operating officer, said: “The acquisition of STL will provide further depth to the range of solutions we offer the emergency services, criminal justice system and wider public and private sector clients. It has significant synergies with our existing justice and secure services business, which holds contracts with the Ministry of Justice and the UK Border Agency. We already work, in some capacity, with all police forces in England and Scotland and with a number of large public and private sector organisations. These additional capabilities will allow us to provide new solutions, on a tailored basis, alongside our multi service offering.”

STL has around 105 employees, primarily in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk.
