DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN.

I haven't posted anything yet this round, but not because I am being lazy. But before I get into why I haven't posted, let's talk about this morning. First, my brother died a few months ago. Which is important to know about this next part. I had a dream about my brother, it was great. It started off as a fairly long dream, that I instantly forgot most of when I woke up, I just remember there was a facility we had explored that I had never been to before (except maybe in a video game, I have no idea where we were). Then we left, and my mom went back alone. She comes back to us all excited and tells us “Mason's Back!!” and we all run to follow her.

When I got there my brother was standing there. He was alive, but he told me that because he had already entered the other side, he was going to be forced back over soon. I asked him what it felt like and he said it felt like going through an intestine, then coming out. And I laughed and asked him how he would know what that felt like. Then I woke up. But during my morning shit I had the thought “Maybe we are just the 'shit' of the spirit world”.

I miss him so much. He was only 11 years old, and I can't believe he is gone. I'm smoking a bowl of my medical MJ right now (I live in Colorado) topped with some “MoonRock” brand hashish. I was always waiting for my brother to be about 14, so he could smoke. I still have a little brother, but he is not the same, the first time he smoke I KNOW he's going to say “We should play videos games”. And it's fine to play video games, but it's not ok (for long) for be the guy that's like “This would be so much better if we were high”. Don't say that, just bring a joint with you wherever you go. But anyways, I know that if Mason would have smoked, he would have loved it. The experience of Marijuana itself would have been a thrill to him, he would have gotten a good connection with the plant that has been with humans since possibly the beginning of our existence. And not only would he have gotten a good connection, he could have used it. And now he is gone.

If anyone is reading this, and is confused about what I am saying. I want to explains something to you. The way your brain works, is by firing off electro-chemical signals. These signals control your nervous system, your motor skills (speech/movement), and everything else. What happens is, a tiny piece of chemical information is transported across an electrical “highway” in your brain. This Highway, leads everywhere in your brain. So when your brain needs to tell your body to do something, it sends a little chemical packet across the highway to the part of your brain that needs the message. Then one the message is received, more chemicals are produced to make your body react (ex: Adrenaline giving a woman the ability to lift a car off her child is an example where we can clearly see this in action. Mom sees kids, brain reacts by dumping electro-chem packet, hormone glands get the signal and produce Adrenaline).

When you smoke weed, the same thing is happening. The Marijuana contains THC (one of the chemical packets), which is absorbed into your blood either via the lungs (same route oxygen takes to get to the blood) or by digestion (slowly, getting torn apart and soaked into the lining of your stomach, which contains blood vessels. Now this chemical packet travels through your blood, and crosses the “blood brain barrier” which basically means it goes through the “skin” of your brain. Then, once inside, it attaches itself to a little node (a “port” to connect to on the electric highway) and begins transmatting a signal for your brain to produce its own electro-chemicals (mainly dopamine).

Now. When you look at this, you may think “THC is hijacking your brain”. That is not what is happening at all. Marijuana is an entire organism, each plant is a separate “being”. Not only is each plant alive, as a plant, it has most likely been around since before man. So when you smoke weed, you are “communicating” or “listening to” a message, that has been passed down from generation to generation (slightly altered each time by natural selection)… So when you “get high” you are not “stoned”, you are having a discussion with a being that cannot use words, all it can do is show you what it knows. “Being High” is an educational seminar, brought to you by a plant teacher.

Which reminds me of something. For all my young adult and adult life, I have heard people say that DMT comes out when you die, and when you dream. When my brother died, I wanted to meet with him. So I got a small amount of DMT, and tried it for my first time. It was like being in a tunnel that was all the colors of fire, but it wasn't on fire. Then I met this guy (looking back I feel as if it was my brother), and he guided me through it. He showed me a tunnel, and at once I understood what people are talking about when they say “Don't go towards the light”. It's not just a cave, it is a tunnel. And at the end of the tunnel is the most INTRICATE machine you have ever seen. It is IMPOSSIBLE for this machine to exist on our planet (and probably in this dimension). It moved in and out of itself, and never reveals its purpose. And it does not have light “around” it, it is not “bathed” in light, it does not “have” a light inside. It IS light. Then my guide held out his hand, and he showed me a city there in his palm, then suddenly from the city, a mass of plants grew. But the plants did not devour the city, they worked to create a new TYPE of city.

I love you Mason. Edit: It has now been about 5 hours, and I think I figured out what Mason meant when he said it is like going through an intestine, then coming out. I was thinking of it like “Coming out” was him getting to visit us. But now I am starting to think that what he meant was, when we are alive, we are in an shitty, place where we have to watch where we step and follow rules… Like an intestine. Then, you just, pop out. And everything is better.

I thought this page was just going to be me saying that I had no idea what I was going to say, but then I decided to share that dream and I'm glad I did. I don't know what else to say as of now, so if I think of anything I will add it.

My Plans for This Round

I've got 30 books coming, so I really want to get like 100,000+ words of history book done.

Then I want to finish my Autobiography, I have about 20,000 words up, and there is still about 1/3-1/2 left to write. So, hopefully I can get that done this round, which will also give people like Smeagol more to work with when writing about me, since he wrote a kinda crappy biography.

Then I hope to use a good chunk of my Devcoins from the writing to buy silver, and then resell the silver for more devcoins. And since I will have more than 80,000 words, next round I will already have some payment coming without doing any work.

Television

So, I wake up this morning. The only thing on (I don't like watching movies on TV or sit-coms, or any kind of sports or news really) is a court TV show following the trials of crazy real life court cases (in session is the name of the show). Then next, the only thing on is world's funniest, worlds dumbest, worlds most shocking, etc. After that, what's on? Cops. The only other stuff that is even really interesting on TV is some stuff on Comedy Central and FXX every once in a while.

What is the media trying to do to us? I turn to news, and we are at war. I turn to sitcoms, and everyone thinks their kids are retarded. Bitches are all fighting and cheating. Weed TV shows are all about hipsters and cops. The only things left to watch are comedy and cop/crime shows. Is this really what America looks like? And the Vegas cops, fucking ridiculous. If you are from out of state you can (literally, I am paraphrasing an episode here) drive drunk, with an open container and closed containers everywhere. Get in a car wreck, after running a red light. Run into someone, sending them flying in the air. Then be let go with a towed car, and a few citations, allowed to go party the rest of the night and come get your car the next day.

And commercials… Credit cards, Cars for sale, Car Insurance, Websites asking us to check out credit or play a game, Settlement Attorneys (It's my money and I need it now, etc) and hardly anything else besides movie and TV ads (which is to be expected). What the hell, do they think we haven't heard of these companies yet? How many new people could possibly buy a TV for the first time each day.

The Mall

So, I'm going to go backwards here, because when I was younger I thought shit like Mall Rats didn't exist anymore. (I've actually never seen the movie and might watch it now)

I lived in Pueblo for a short time, and I rented a room I found on Craigslist. One of the guys I lived with worked at the mall and called himself “King Jame-o” (James Lopez) (he was 28 years old, not a kid). His whole life was drinking, fucking a nasty bitch that looked like a cat (and cheating on her with nastier bitches), going to work most of the day (at a cart in the middle of the hall that sells cell phone cases, sunglasses or incense depending where they got stationed that day), and talking about doing those things when he wasn't doing them. Or walking around the mall… He was a real life Mall RAT, and so were all his friends. They would come smoke bud with me when they got off work, then go straight back up to the mall until everyone got off, then come smoke or drink. I always told them I had better shit to do on the computer, because I don't need to be at the mall with no money.

One day, we were at a “party”. Which was a baby shower when we got there, where there was no alcohol. And their MANAGER was there. She's like 45 years old, and apparently smokes weed, so automatically “fits in” (and she was their boss, so it was like a vibe of them being her pets, wanting to please her). So were at this party, and she is there. And she says to me “I was at the mall today, and someone walked by and acted like they didn't even see me there” and I said “That's how most malls are”.

Then another day, I forget exactly what happened. I think it was when we were short on weed, and we didn't know a SINGLE other dealer to get it from and we were bored as shit with nothing to do. I asked Jake (a kid that lived near our apartment complex and would come over all the time to blaze), “Have you ever been to a real town” and he LITERALLY said to me “What do you mean?”… He was born in Kansas, and moved to Pueblo. He may have been TO Denver, but he had never lived in a REAL town. Then I realized I needed to get the fuck out of that city.

Now, since I started with a recent event, let's now go back. I lived in Goulds, which is like 15 minutes south of Miami. There was a mall like 2 city blocks from my house, then malls all down the highway every like 4 exits. It's INSANE how many malls are out there, mainly because of segregation of color and class, but also because they are just trying to pump SO much money out of each area. It's so developed down there that there isn't even a Wal Mart in Miami, you have to go to North Miami (like 20 minutes north if you live south of Miami).

And one major thing that I want to point out about the wealthier malls in Florida. There are little carts that people buy, kind of like how when you are at the airport with a family, maybe you rent a little cart to carry all the luggage so the little kids don't have to carry theirs. That's kinda normal, a little shopping cart for the mall… Different, but ok… Now here's the weird part. There is a little seat on the front… Not a baby seat. Grown women and teenage children sit on the seat, while their parents and boyfriends/husbands push them around the mall. It is RIDICULOUS.

Cops

Who becomes police?

Ready to taze anyone (actually happy to do it), excited to be the lead car when chasing a fleeing car, ready and willing to pull out riot gear on anyone and would probably even do it to their own child… Who are these people?

I am watching like world's craziest police chases, and I honestly have to say, I don't feel like modern police evolved from local sheriffs… I think they evolved from slave hunting groups. Just their tactics, and attitudes. It's not about justice, it's a hunt.

And they laugh and shit when the dogs get someone. It's literally like a fox hunt, but the fox is a human being.

I just saw a guy rob a jewelry store with mace. But then the clerk pulled out a gun. And I think if they would have sprayed the mace and held a fake gun to his head, or beat him up. He would have just had to deal with getting robbed. I would NEVER EVER commit a robbery, just saying.

New morning, and there is still nothing on but most shocking, and it's a riot episode so that's pretty cool. But watching this, makes me realize ONE thing. That as Americans, we will probably never be able to participate in a real riot. They don't happen in America (except sports events ones, but nothing really happens there, people just flip cars and climb poles), so if you were ever in the middle of one, most Americans would probably run for their lives because of the foreigners getting violent. And any Americans staying to fight are going to get killed by rioters, or else the police will be noticing them and they will get the worse of their retaliation and probably go to jail.

Cleanliness

Washing comes from the caste system. Originally you didn't take a bath because you touched someTHING dirty, you would take a bath if the lower class touched you. OR, sometimes even if just their shadow touched you.

Also, something funny. You know how on men's cologne it says “Water De Toilet”? Well, that's means “Water of Toilet” and the reason it is called that, is because it was invented in the same town as the toilet. Also, people used to not bath often, so they would just wear Rosemary or other spices so they would smell god.

We are becoming aliens to the bacteria and minerals of our own planet, we use stuff that kills 99.99% of germs?!?!? That means there are people walking around with anti-Earth in their pockets, and using it all day. It's crazy.

If cleanliness is next to godliness, why do animals play in mud? And why do babies shit themselves? AND, how can we say penicillin was discovered on a rotten piece of bread, then act like doctors are all sterile. Doctors have been one of the biggest spreaders of disease for hundreds, if not thousands of years. (case in point, the black plague)
