I rode in the snow today.  Interesting the weather because of this huge Arctic Blast (Beast from the East) of cold air, all of Europe in its grip, but the further north like we, the colder.  Today, maybe -03C. windchill factor, and the wind is the mounatins in The Netherlands.  So early, the sun was out, and then clouds brought  snow flakes dancing slowly, as we glided through them.  Such is delightful as in Disney animated film.  The last time I experienced a cold winter, was maybe Bolivia, December, 2012.  I´ve gone through situations, places like the Salar de Uyuni up at near 4K mts. ASL on the Alti Plano,  where I was cold all the time, everywhere we went inside, outside. The hotel room no heater.  I burned my gas cooker, stood over it, leaped into bed.  But, later in the gateway village (name?) those nights in a salt hotel room, memorable!  I must have wore five layers of clothing on to bed, under blankets.  And the room so small with two bicycles (Johnny and mine), there was no space to move.  
A couple of interesting things about cycling on salt, however.  First of all, it´s hard, and pieced together in hexagon shapes, millions of them as the Salar, we´re talking large!  
One, Johnny stirpped naked so I could take fotos. of him riding his bicycle.  I couldn´t do the same for money!  Well, maybe for one million virgins in heaven!  Secondly, Johnny found the frozen remains of the Cochabamba City flag!  Now, what are the odds, out of thousands of square kilometers, that we, from Cochabamba, would find this flag?  I took a foto., of Johnny (dressed) displaying the flag. 
I didn´t get warm until back in Cochabamba, 2000K mts. lower in elevation.
Cold… I know cold.  I also have experienced extreme heat! 
WE EAT HILLS FOR BREAKFAST!

`The Boys Are Not All Right!´ THE PUER ETERNUS, the male ego, the problem, what I´ve labeled, AMERICAN PATHOLOGY!


The Boys Are Not All Right
查看简体中文版 查看繁體中文版
By MICHAEL IAN BLACK
Boys, have been left behind. No commensurate movement has emerged to help them, as have girls, navigate toward a full expression of their gender. It’s no longer enough to “be a man” — we no longer even know what that means.
Too many boys are trapped in the same suffocating, outdated model of masculinity, where manhood is measured in strength, where there is no way to be vulnerable without being emasculated, where manliness is about having power over others. They are trapped, and they don’t even have the language to talk about how they feel about being trapped, because the language that exists to discuss the full range of human emotion is still viewed as sensitive and feminine.
Men feel isolated, confused and conflicted about their natures. Many feel that the very qualities that used to define them — their strength, aggression and competitiveness — are no longer wanted or needed; many others never felt strong or aggressive or competitive to begin with. We don’t know how to be, and we’re terrified.
But to even admit our terror is to be reduced, because we don’t have a model of masculinity that allows for fear or grief or tenderness or the day-to-day sadness that sometimes overtakes us all.
Case in point: A few days ago, I posted a brief thread about these thoughts on Twitter, knowing I would receive hateful replies in response. I got dozens of messages impugning my manhood; the mildest of them called me a “soy boy” (a common insult among the alt-right that links soy intake to estrogen).
And so the man who feels lost but wishes to preserve his fully masculine self has only two choices: withdrawal or rage. We’ve seen what withdrawal and rage have the potential to do. School shootings are only the most public of tragedies. Others, on a smaller scale, take place across the country daily; another commonality among shooters is a history of abuse toward women.
To be clear, most men will never turn violent. Most men will turn out fine. Most will learn to navigate the deep waters of their feelings without ever engaging in any form of destruction. Most will grow up to be kind. But many will not.
We will probably never understand why any one young man decides to end the lives of others. But we can see at least one pattern and that pattern is glaringly obvious. It’s boys.
I believe in boys. I believe in my son. Sometimes, though, I see him, 16 years old, swallowing his frustration, burying his worry, stomping up the stairs without telling us what’s wrong, and I want to show him what it looks like to be vulnerable and open but I can’t. Because I was a boy once, too.
There has to be a way to expand what it means to be a man without losing our masculinity. I don’t know how we open ourselves to the rich complexity of our manhood. I think we would benefit from the same conversations girls and women have been having for these past 50 years.
I would like men to use feminism as an inspiration, in the same way that feminists used the civil rights movement as theirs. I’m not advocating a quick fix. There isn’t one. But we have to start the conversation. Boys are broken, and I want to

Wow!  We cyclled 20KM today, to Vledder, to go to the Stampel Bakery, recommended by Eric and Petronella.  This, only 10KM each way, and easy and direct, going and returning. But, we´re talking Cold, maybe -03C., wind chill!  
We´re experencing real winter here with this late Arctic blast, the wind from the N.E., Germany, Poland, Russia.  March coming in like a LION!
Can you imagine cycling in Moscow in the winter?
I cycled Dalsland, Sweden in February, wearing four layers of clothing.  Today, I think I had five  above,  three below. And my hands didn´t get cold as they usually do.   Maybe the humidity higher? 
People don´t realize that water (humidity) transmits temperature 22X greater than air. 
Give me a cold dry climate any day, like the Atacama Desert, Chile.  It felt chilly but not cold at -05C, when I camped out in San Pedro de Atacama. 
But, Sweden, very little sunlight, low, weak on the horizon, depressing. I wonder sometimes how I survive such things?
SMILE WHEN YOU´RE MAKING IT!
LAUGH WHEN YOU´RE TAKING IT,

Sexual abuse and misconduct by men (and women)…
Weigh in on this…

In my day (the 1960s), we were hell bent on getting laid, things very different than 2018!  You were almost not a man if not aggressive.  Women were there to make you jump through hoops, like marriage, to have sexual intercouse.  So, sometimes we just got them drunk and took advantage of their weakened resolve. 

There was little about sexual education when I grew up in the 1950s, except the basic school anatomy movie , the microscopic sperms swimming and then penetrating a human egg, conception, etc.

I personally can cop to episodes I´m not proud of, as drunk myself.  Some of these you might label as date rape.   However, back when men were men and women seemed to like it that way, we cut notches on our `gun handles´ for each conquest.  Locker room talk, as Trump labeled such.

This was the age of THE PILL, which came along just in time for my first marriage.  It was the woman´s responsibility in those days not to get pregnant!

I might have gotten one of my sexual partners pregnant, but never quite sure.  She was sleeping with my boss, and told me HE USES A RUBBER!  `Rubbers´ we called condoms in those days, the Sixties. 

Ah, the Sixties, the decade of sex, drugs, rock ´n´ roll!   it was SLAM, BAM, THANK YOU, MAAM in the entertainment business.

I do know something about the scene in Hollywood, having worked there.  The casting couch, was, and still used, sagging from all the pounding.

Ambitious women, and I´m not making excuses for men, will do almost anything to get a part in a movie!  So will men!  I saw it many times, there writing screenplays in Hollywood.  Powerful producers like Harry Weinstein exploit the situation, and you ge what we finally have today, ME TOO! and TIME OUT! Women, have finally had enough, and gotten the courage to speak out about it, shaming and suing their abusers!   This is good! 

The key word having to do with sexual intercourse is consensual, although sometimes difficult to get to it, in the heat of the moment!  I remember the smell of Estée Lauder´s YOUTH DEW,  on a young woman who worked with me.  Smelling that aroma on her body, wearing short shirts, pantyhouse, and knee boots, I was driven into a state of frenzy — out of control!  Blame her, of course!

Thus, I can´t imagine going through the dating scene in this day and age.  Children, have so much more information, experience!

Yet, there is the Moslem scene, Moslem women having been abused for centuries.  And not just rape, but things like burying them alive for adultery! It is the Moslem men that we should buried alive for doing such! 

To sum up… The male and the female, once those hormones start pumping, lose control.  I call this Nature´s Joke, a way to proliferate the species!

What to do?

Evolve or die!

H. 

To us, Science, just another religion, how we´ve created existence!

I´ve been in Noordwolde one month now, and this hardly seems possible!
But, I´ve made much progress with FOLLOWING THE LIGHT, my book about cycling the world, and riding in the cold weather.  The winter weather in the Netherlands, particularly the wind in the land of windmills (windmolens in Dutch, molinos in Spanish), challenging! 
How to describe Dutch culture?  The Dutch are known for their directness in relationships, SHOOTING IT STRAIGHT they do!   Recently I was told my breath unacceptable because of all the garlic I consume! 
Integrity, important in the Netherlands, stealing, Verbotin!  In Dutch, Niet toegestaan!  For example, farmers sell their produce, and other things, from an unmanned table in front of their house (on the road).  They mark the prices, and leave a container where you leave the money for whatever you purchase.  The owners not worried about it being stolent!  Stealing just isn´t acceptable behavior in the Netherlands, although I hear bicycles are stolen.  Maybe bicycles stolen because there are so many, and riders don´t secure them. 
I´ve seen few beggars in cities in the Netherlands, but I´ll let you know after my visit to Amsterdam, the capitol.  Maybe there?
Here in Noordwolde, I know of only one, an ethic man who plays the accordian at the door of the local food market, JUMBO.  I always donate 2€ or $3 U.S.
Similar to Switzerland, the Netherlands, is made up of a small (17 million populaton) homogeneous citizery, that speak the same language.  Of all the European countries, the Dutch speak more and better English, thus easier for me personally.
The Dutch are highly educated, and basically prosperous. 
The food quality, superb!
Marijuana, allowed… A person can have 5grams personally.  Coffee Houses, in Amsterdam, still sell it, although tecnically illegal. 
The Dutch are simply more tolerant, allowing refugees to come and live here in the Netherlands.
Finally, only 25% of the land area technically below sea level.  But, one wonders about the future of the Netherlands, considering the rising sea levels thanks to global warming.
Me, I´m trying to keep my head above water, as so much to do in the three months alloted for Noordwolde.  I hope I can complete the first draft of FOLLOWING THE LIGHT.
So far, I´ve completed 25 chapters in 30 days, that´s almost one chapter per day!  But, easy for a professional writer that lived the story!   Imagination is one thing, but living the story, quite another! 
It´s so interesting congering up events, that happened 15 years ago.  But, my recall pretty good! 
Today, I completed Chapter 25, all about my first tour-cycling trip in China, from Urumqi to Kashgar, some 1200KM in Xinjiang, A.R.  And this with a Uyghur man (Mamat) who knew little English, and me even less Chinese, beyond, NI HAO!  Somehow we managed, however, acting out what needed to be communicated. 
Now, cycling in the Netherlands, most understand English!

HITTING HOME! 
I am a part of American Pathology, as we all are are, all 323,000,000 of us (190218).  We have met the enemy and he is us! (Walt Kelly via POGO).  It seems possums are smarter than human beings!
Of course, few of us will admit any complicity with the recent Florida high school tragegy!  It was this disarranged, disturbed, angry white boy with an AR-15 — THE BAD GUY!  We had nothing to do with it — WE´RE THE GOOD GUYS!  Wrong, we, and all of us, had a hand in creating the circumstances in which these `unexplained´ mass school tragedies are  happening!  Note, the police are always looking for motives behind such.  This essay is an attempt to answer what lies behind such mass madness!  You can start by watching a movie entitled, NETWORK! 
We, all of us, seem to refuse to take any responsibility of creating a culture in which such violence can happen, and does!  It´s not so likely in other cultures, like The Netherlands, where I´m currently living. 
And Trump, as wrong as he is most of the time, was correct, when he intimated the problem is one of mental health.  Of course, this is the pot calling the kettle black, yet he´s one of the first, besides health care professionals, that has suggested this is MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS! 
Note:  We´re never going to eliminate guns from the American psyche, so maybe a more efficient way in terms of insurance money, is to approach the problem from a different angle!   
We could try to get HOLLYWOOD, to change the theme of 80% of their movies:  VIOLENCE IS THE SOLUTION TO ALL PROBLEMS!  But, I doubt that will happen anytime soon, as would cut into their revenue!  We, the mass audience, responds to such, and the question to be answered, IS WHY? 
Isn´t the suicide rate, the overdosing with opioids indication of such as well?  Yet, we bury our collective heads in the sand, only getting involved when it becomes our own personal tragedy (or the family´s).  When it HITS HOME! 
Where have we gone wrong?  
Look at the history of the homo sapien, going back millions of years!  Nothing much has changed in terms of consciousness!  Everything has changed in terms of needs and desires:  more people chasing few and fewer resouces; the male ego out of control!
Instead of initiating some kind of national dialogue how these problems might be solved, how we might develop a greater sense of responsibility nee consciousness, we just pass off unpleasant thoughts-things, like Florida, as just another NUT CASE!  We´re all NUT CASES, I´ve got news for you! 
Instead, we treat the symptoms of `illnesses´ for money, never attempting to cure the disease.  If we were to cure the illness it might throw us into an economic depression! some people think!  Example, cancer isn´t an illness, it´s an industry!  C´mon, LET´S GO TO THE VIDEOTAPE!  The masses, basically are living in a darkness, created for, yep, dinero, money, gold, weath, etc. — and by truly evil people, I might add! 
We´re in denial about the problem, us, all of us!  To solve and to ultimately cure the problem-illness, which is us, we´d have to admit some unpleasant things about ourselves.  This requires courage we don´t seem to have.  So, the easy way out… destroy the demon in the mind, with violence — either suicide or by killing others.  The latest news about Cruz, from his appointed attorney, is that   he´s a lost kid.  Lost for sure!  Even the FBI didn´t pick up on his cries for help, yet blatant to some of us. Note: Cruz advertised selfies, him with guns.   And there in his photographs  is the problem:  MEN WITH GUNS, the American way, as it´s our mythology!  Read VIOLENT MEN, by Hans Toch.
Yes, control guns like the AR-15, a good idea, but that´s not going to cure the illness.  McVey used fertilizer to kill over 200 people including children.  If, an out- of-control male ego is angry, they´re going to find a way to express it, and one that Hollywood encourages (unconsciously, of course):  VIOLENCE! 
So, how might we even attempt to cure, us, this mental health problem as such an idea goes contrary to the tide of modern thinking?  What might evolve human beings to a quicker state of higher consciousness?
It depends upon whether your reality is conceived objectively or like with us, subjectively!  
We believe reality is created from our individual minds, humanity attempting to come together via language, nee dictionaries — and, not very well!
If we could just stop for a moment, with the luxury of time to thimk!  If we just stopped for a moment to realize some things about ourselves and the culture    we´ve created there might be hope. F Kafka wrote:  THERE IS INFINITE HOPE BUT NOT FOR US! (humanity).
Is there hope?  Yes, but only if we can garner the courage to face ourselves!  If not, life will go on as it has… More wars, more mass murders in schools, more opioid overdoses, the pharma. corpos. making greater profits, but to what end, maybe the self-destruction of humanity!
Long ago it was asked by wiser perople than us, WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A  MAN IF HE GAINS THE ENTIRE WORLD, BUT LOSES HIS OWN SOUL IN THE PROCESS?
We, the western world, led by the U.S., HAVE BECOME SOUL-LESS ENTITIES!  SOUL-LESS,  BECAUSE MONEY AND PROFIT HAVE BECOME GOD!  And until that changes… Woe be unto us!
I just spent the last 20 years living and cycling the world on a bicycle!  I have met many, many, good, kind, thoughtful, even evolved people in different culture-countries around the world. China, for one:  good people, but bad government! 
There are the creators and the destroyers!  What we need in 2018, are more creators, and less destroyers!  How might this come about?
One small contribution is a video game entitled, THE ULTIMATE BATTLE.  Most video games are about destruction, as the only solution.  This video game, different, as about creation as the solution!  You create a better person, from the beginning of human history.  If you are judged in succeeding to create a better human being, you are awarded with eternal life! 
Isn´t it possible that we might save ourselves, from ourselves?  THE ULTIMATE BATTLE!
The answer my friends, is no longer `blowin´in the wind!´ The answer lies within us, not without!
THE LIGHT IS WITH US!  THE LIGHT IS WITHIN US!

Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley (1797–1851) that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque but sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was 18, and the first edition of the novel was published anonymously in London on 1 January 1818, when she was 20.[1] Her name first appeared on the second edition, published in France in 1823.
Shelley travelled through Europe in 1814, journeying along the river Rhine in Germany with a stop in Gernsheim which is 17 km (10 mi) away from Frankenstein Castle, where, two centuries before, an alchemist was engaged in experiments.[2][3][4] Later, she travelled in the region of Geneva (Switzerland)—where much of the story takes place—and the topic of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her lover and future husband, Percy Shelley. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for days, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made; her dream later evolved into the novel's story. 

Are we creating monsters to evolve us to a lighter lievel of consciousness?  Egoless robots might demonstrate a better way!  Although according to Lord Siva, no destruction, no creation!   
What is the better way?  In the middle, balance between the two extremes.  Some war, some peace, but with more peace comes greater consciousness, when people have time to think, other than just trying to keep their children alive!  Thus, the OWNERS try to keep us in the dark.
It´s madness to me, to know, at least according to the commercial media, what´s going on in the Middel East, from Palestine to Afghanistan — madness.
And the U.S. Government has made it worse by getting inovled!  Viet Nam was the same!  We make it worse!  Why?  It´s porfitable for some corporations, now acting like countries, yet with the protection of an individaul.  Where did we go SO WRONG?
The only positive thing I can credit both religion and war, is helping to reduce over population! 
So be it, David!
It only takes a spark to ignite a all consuming fire!  Know what happened to Atlantis?

And why do they do that? Because the masses respond to such, and more readers, more money! Simple, money has become God in the world!

No one has picked up the waco kid´s last name as Cruz. This means cross in Spanish.

What a waste! He´ll be executed, life will continue. There will be another school massacre, since we don´t really want to cure the disease, us!

It´s starting!

What we´re talking about here is what I called NATURE´S JOKE! It was designed to proliferate the species, and very successful! But, when the male ego loses control, then a problem!

For Robert Reich...

I watched SAVING CAPITALISM last night via Netflix!
Yes, you´ve identified the problem, but your solutions, same ole:  become more educated and involved!   That´s treating the symptoms, without curing the disease, US, all of us!  Capitalism doesn´t exist independently of human nature.  And there´s the problem and ultimate cure.  WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY AND HE IS US!  (Walt Kelly via POGO).  The cure is us!, the U.S. almost terminally ill, a sick culture.    I call it,. AMERICAN PATHOLOGY!
What´s needed is metanoia, a fundamental change in thinking, that I don´t see happening.  I hate to be the bearer of such, but I agree with F. Kafka:  THERE IS INFINITE HOPE, BUT NOT FOR US!  
Yet, somehow humanity has managed to get this far, maybe egoless robots will save us from ourselves?
I always ask those who might know.  Capitalism is based on growth, but what happens when we can´t grow anymore?
Mars to exlploit and trash out, other exoplanets as well?
The solution is to stop projecting evil and wrongdoing on everyone else, AND ACCEPT THE FACT, THAT WHAT WE HAVE CREATED, HAS CAUSED HUMANITY TO GO OFF THE TRACKS, the Opioid crisis, one example. You hit upon the greed of the Pharmo. corpos. 
But, the woman with cancer said, WE HAVE NO CHOICE EXCEPT TO PURCHASE THE MEDICINES.  Wrong!
Cancer isn´t an illness, it´s an industry!
Oh, Lord don´t get me started.
I my 78 years so far on planet earth, I have seen integrity and trust lost!  Why?  Greed!  The male ego out of control!
And the masses like sheep, being lead to slaughter!
In Nepal they say, KE GARNE?  What to do?
EVOLVE OR DIE!  Lillly Tomlin sports on a t-shirt!
H.
Use less, share more!

we´ll meet again, don´t know when, don´t know where!

In a study published today in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, a team of Australian astronomers announced that Andromeda is not actually the heavyweight we once thought it was. Instead, they found that our nearest galactic neighbor is more or less the same size as the Milky Way — some 800 billion times the mass of the Sun.
