To the Heights of the Heavens

To the Heights of the Heavens

Striving for great heights

Well, I had a deep yearning to reach the heights of heaven and do what I want. Of course there are always limitations so I cannot just do what I want. YouTube had some videos for why the earth is actually flat and not like a globe. Then, YouTube also had some people explaining different trees in some esoteric meaning that the trees were symbolic of Biblical references. There was also the note that the Tree of Life was in the center of the earth and that trees have so much awesomeness. I never finished what I was watching on YouTube because I did not want to analyze the YouTube videos and the discussion at the moment last night.

I had the deep yearning to reach the heights of heaven and find all that is hidden throughout. Of course, I can only stay within California and I do not have the means to find out every hidden detail throughout. I posted a questionnaire on Twitter last night asking people what tree they would compare with or relate with the most but I deleted the tweet because it probably would have gotten 0 responses and it would not allow me to post my response. I do not know every tree in the earth so it is really disappointing not knowing what tree might be significant or not. If there were a stout tree then I would say I most relate to that one because it is sturdy and has strong roots established in the ground but still striving to reach the heavens as it stands and grows toward heaven. I want to say I relate to a redwood because a redwood is the tallest tree right now that’s height reaches into heaven. And I live in California and redwoods grow in California.

It amazes me how most living things strive to reach the heights of heaven. Water is rushing in the creek near where I am staying at the moment. I realize that water even has the process of trying to reach the heavens when it evaporates but then it gets recycled and rains down back to the earth. Trees grow and always reach toward the heavens. I guess animals are kind of like people in the way that people have a mind and do what people do as animals do what animals do. Rockets carrying people even strive to reach the heavens and get far enough as the Moon [hoax] or send robots to Mars. I am trying to think of more creatures or living things that try to reach the heavens. It seems strange because it does not seem as though creatures of the deep really strive to reach the heavens – except for creatures like a dolphin that always comes to the surface of the water or a whale that surfaces. Birds can only get so high toward the heavens.

It seems that I had the yearning to reach the heights of the heavens and to find all that is hidden and that other living beings strive for this as well.

Not So Skewed after all

via Daily Prompt: Skewed

Skewed

Heading 1

How can I write about the word skewed? What am I supposed to write? As I sit here at my laptop in the cabin that I am staying at, I do not think that I have the intellectual capacity to write anything about the word skewed. One of the definitions for skewed based on a search on Google is: 1. Make biased or distorted in a way that is regarded as inaccurate, unfair, or misleading. The only thing that comes to mind is that I would think that a criminal defense attorney would want to make sure that the prosecution distorted the case in a way that made it unfair, misleading, and inaccurate so that the defense could win in court. Another definition for skewed is: 2. Suddenly change direction or position. The definition from Google states that “The car had skewed across the track.” The definition for skewed based on the distortion or bias definition states “the curriculum is skewed toward the practical subjects.” That makes sense to me and it is reassuring that my comment and thought that a criminal defense would want the prosecutor to have skewed the trial in order to create a better defense since it would be unfair, misleading, and inaccurate on the prosecution side. But I do not even know how a curriculum could be skewed toward practical subjects. I think that would mean that the curriculum is distorted in a way that has more of the practical subjects to study rather than classes in a curriculum that do not get a student to achieve success. Sometimes, however, when I think of the second definition of skewed I think of a car “burning rubber” as it skewed across the pavement. Occasionally, I hear a car that the driver has sped up too fast in which the car turns its wheels and screeches on the pavement, hence, burning rubber. If I am to write something on skewed as in the first definition, then I will really have to find out what is skewed at the present moment. The other thing that comes to mind when I think of something being skewed is a graph in statistics. I did a search on Google about skewed and found an article from NYU about a skewed distribution of wealth graph. I did not really want to read an economics and statistics paper from NYU at the moment so I am going to write instead on what could be skewed in my life.

I created an account on Twitter. I have four followers and only one of them I know. I was going to say that it is skewed for me to have only four followers, but the truth is that I do not have that many connections that I know personally besides the people that I went to three different high schools with. It sure is more of a challenge to find close friends now that I am not in elementary school. I used to think that I was popular. So, I would say that it is not distorted or misleading that I only have four followers of which 75% of them are strangers. I would like followers – and maybe I would like to follow others. It would be skewed to say that, oh, having only a few followers on Twitter at the moment is misleading, inaccurate, and unfair since it does not accurately represent Nicholas Jakubowski’s connections and friendships.

The other thing that would might have been skewed is when I wanted people on Twitter to answer a question about what type of tree they could compare with or most represented them based off of only four criteria. The four choices were a Redwood, a Yew, a Cedar, and a Fig tree. So it would not have been skewed to have 0 responses since I do not have many followers and people probably would not understand the creativity of the question.

Aliens and fear near the Forest

via Daily Prompt: Forest

Forest

a large area covered chiefly with trees and undergrowth

Well I do not know where to begin writing about a forest, or to forest land, or anything about a forest. Today, I am at my family cabin with my mother, my brother, and my uncle. I will be there until Tuesday or Wednesday then its back to Carmel Valley, CA 93924. The cabin is surrounded by acres and acres of forest. I do not want to write about me creating a forest by planting trees or shrubs or anything because I am not creating or foresting at the moment. Another idea that came to mind was de-forest where someone in my family wants to cut down some pine and cedar trees on the cabin property near the creek in order to get a better view of the creek that is nearby. I am indifferent to the idea of de-foresting some of the trees near the creek. I would like the trees that are growing there to be able to grow big and healthy, but at the same time I think that it would be cool to also have a lot more open area to view the creek.

Anyway, I am near the outskirts of a large forest that surrounds the cabin that I am staying in at the moment. I will have to upload a photo of the forest or something is my next thought. But, it is pretty interesting because there is so much acres of land around the cabin that I can go on the trails and walk through the forest and take family and go for walks and even hike up the hill to the boulder that family has climbed before. But for these days at the cabin, most of what we are doing is work on the cabin.

I sometimes get the thought that oh my there could be wild critters and bears and wolves or coyotes around the forest so it is probably best not to venture too far. I just cannot get out of my head the cat noise that comes from adjacent places in the forest.

 On occasion, I hear from my dad the story of when he went to camp in Canada and ventured passed his group of campers and came in contact with a black bear. Luckily, he says, the bear just strolled right by him. The funny thing about it is that when he got back to camp half shaken, he said his group of campers were yelling with joy that they encountered a bear too. Haha, how cool.

But I do not really want to encounter a bear if I was ever going for a walk in the forest. There are a few fire trails to go on and of course I can wander all through the forest on the cabin property. I prefer to go walk to the creek or go up to the boulder the family calls Hermandos. However, there are so many different encounters that could happen out there in the forest. I sometimes think of demons for some reason not that demons are even real or anything.

I used to be obsessed with all things esoteric and basically all the stuff that is not based in reality but gets a few followers, such as aliens and stuff. I was once scrolling through a photo of a group of hikers that photoshopped a demon/alien being out in the forest. Of course it is not real, and I am glad that I have come to the understanding that aliens from outer space people are never going to encounter and demons most likely are not real. However, last night I started having the image that there could be a demon out in the forest and I had the thought that Oh my gosh, a demon which is not real is going to be terrorizing the forest. LOL, Of course those things are not real, but you would be surprised with my imagination and what I think you see in the night in the forest.

To change the scene a bit, I do not believe in Aliens other than an alien that is a foreign person from another country or another nation. It just is not real to say that there are aliens from another world or to say that there are extraterrestrials. Again, I do not believe that there is anything other than what is right in front of me or around me – everything that is visible and tangible to include people, places, and things. There might be extraterrestrials in the sense that there is more land besides what our map shows the average person, but I do not believe in an alien that is from outer space. I mean think about it – if the earth is round then all of history is true in the sense that we can only really stay within our means and will never be able to venture past the Moon [hoax?] or send a robot camera to Mars. And, those are dead planets in the sense that they do not really have much or any life on them.

But, if the earth was flat then we might have more land beyond what our map shows – or, we are just on this earth and the ice caps are our borders that we will never venture passed. But, there could be more than just what the maps show us. I sincerely believe that there could be more territories or lands that have been unexplored on this very earth. The arctic circle has not been explored much. Also, Antarctica has not been explored that much as far as I know. But, why is it that no billionaire out there sets up an expedition to explore what has not been explored on this very earth. Instead, there is the constant obsession with finding an alien from outer space. I guess, prove to me that there is an actual intelligent alien from outer space, and then I will believe it.

But the fear is real. Last night we went out of the forest and had Mexican food. A baseball team was there on the other side of the restaurant and there were groups and families having a meal. The fear hit me and the hair stood straight up on my body. So I searched for quotes on fear and posted a quote by George Addair on Twitter. The quote goes “everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.” I liked the quote.

Tide – A powerful surge of feeling or trend of events

via Daily Prompt: Tide

Tide

A powerful surge of feeling or trend of events

There really is nothing to write about when it comes to a powerful surge of feeling or trend of events except this stuff. I think of the good feeling song that goes, ohhh sometimes I get a good feeling. The other tide that is going on is the Kanye West business where some people are like boycotting Kanye West music at the moment. Supposedly Kanye West said that slavery of the mind is optional or something like that and people just refuse to listen to him now and really actually got upset with his comment.

I guess the trend of events or tide that has been going on is the firing and resignation of people that work for the President. All of a sudden there has been so many different people that work of President Trump that have resigned or been fired lately.

Although, I can speak on a powerful surge of feeling. I had a powerful surge of sadness yesterday when I was out in Monterey, CA. I live with family in Carmel Valley, CA 93924, but my family left with their friends for the day and went to restaurants and stuff. I had the surge of sadness for a bit while my family members were out with friends and I was stuck all by myself. Sadness was the tide or strong feeling. There was no jealousy, but it was strange to feel so sad about being all alone. Maybe a whole bunch of stuff activated the sadness as well. I have not been getting any requests from Lyft passengers [maybe like one or two in the last week, but that is it]. Additionally, I only got a B+ on the presentation that I did for the business class that I am taking. I was disappointed more than anything. I deserved an A+ or at the least an A. There was something else but I cannot think of it at the moment.

So it is probably weird to be writing about how I was feeling yesterday for the brief surge of sadness, but the alternative is to just sit here idly while watching “The Crossing” on Hulu. I’d rather write this than sit in idle. The Crossing is a good show. It is about a bunch of folks who time traveled back in time trying to escape the Apex aliens and a sheriff who has to protect all the folks who time traveled.

Observe – All the bureaucratic jumbo happens in the cloud

via Daily Prompt: Observe

Observe

Notice or perceive (something) and register it as being significant

I observe the daily commotion in the city of Monterey while I am out and about and in the city of Monterey, CA. Usually, the day begins with a thick layer of cloud or fog. As the day goes on, the heavens open up and the sun usually peaks around noon or later. Today, the sun was finally up at around 2:00 pm. I observe that most people are in their homes or commuting to work or beginning their day somehow when the thick layer of cloud is there. They are beginning their day by usually staying out of sight. Usually, people do not come out when there is the overcast sky. It just so happened that today, people started entering the city of Monterey when the sky opened up. There are the occasional people that walk around in the thick layer of cloud, but mostly the scene changes when school gets out. Even the police stay out of sight when there is the thick layer of cloud [likely due to having to balance their activities and stuff]

I decided to head on back home in order to write in the blog today once the heavens opened up and the sun came out. I made those observations today, or rather, I decided to write about the observation right now. I opened up Twitter and found that today is NationalPrayerDay; a football player was in the Twitter feed; and that someone liked and followed my blog. I was happy that someone actually followed my wordpress blog. I told them cool and thank you on Twitter. Today, I had the Lyft app on, but the only request was canceled because the rider did not show. Oh, and there were some folks singing Glory, Glory Hallelujah out by the museum in downtown earlier today.

So I perceive the thick layer of cloud in the morning and register it as being significant. All the bureaucratic mumbojumbo happens in the cloud 

Notable – Worthy of attention; remarkable

via Daily Prompt: Notable
Notable

Worthy of attention; remarkable

As I write about notable I notice that tere is a lot of wind outside of the house I live. It is not really notable wind, but there is definitely a little bit of wind. I worked today and made a notable $3.75 and maybe a tip. I picked up a girl who had a European name. The radio station was 102.5 KDON and it was the lunchbox quick mix. I drove the girl to her destination which was the mall. Besides that one request, I sat in the car for a while, and I also got to stroll downtown Monterey, CA. Nothing really notable today. The only notable piece is the homeless situation in Monterey, CA. The homeless are okay to kind of just hang out around downtown and at least I am fine with it. I think more than anything, certain homeless chose to be homeless, so its not like sending them away is going to do much help. More than likely, the homeless that frequent locations in Monterey, CA chose to live out there. Hey, some of them might not even be homeless and might even live around Monterey but just hang out there. I just cannot be stopped by any felons, so I am cautious when it comes to any homeless that try to talk to me. Most of the time, the homeless just mind there own business and I mind my own business too.
One time I was stopped by a woman who seemed homeless but she might actually own a house in Monterey, CA. She was nice, but I try to distance myself from her. She likes bees and she brought awareness of certain types of bees that are like pests to other types of bees, and moreover, that some types of bees cannot be allowed to lay their eggs. In my opinion, and in English, the woman probably just does not like prostitution from people in Monterey, CA. Interestingly enough, a massage parlor just got cited a month or so ago for solicitation of prostitution in Monterey, CA. I told the woman that I did not mind that Asian bees lay their eggs
So nothing really notable today. I came back home after sitting around Monterey in the car waiting for requests from Lyft passengers. I bought a pizza and will be eating it in about 8 minutes.

Serpent and Man – Equality

The Serpent and Man

 

 

For the majority of people, getting along is not always so easy. For me too but I have my own set of problems and deal my fair share of. But my creativity sparks some truth that I believe is the root cause of disparity and hatred in the world. As I read Genesis, there comes a part of the story where it is the serpent, Adam, and Eve. The story has Eve blaming the serpent, Adam blaming his wife, and the serpent getting most of the blame for eating something that was forbidden by God. The curse to the serpent is that the serpents offspring would have enmity with the offspring of the woman. So I ask, how can everything be equal if these curses were laid out? In the curse, it was said that the woman’s offspring would strike at the serpents head while the serpents offspring would strike at their heel. If you are a God fearing person, and you really follow the Bible and go to church or whatever, then you must acknowledge that equality is nothing more than a sham in this life. You see it in the Doctors office or in the city or wherever…when you see that a person is overmedicated on psych meds – that is not equality. Or God forbid a person is dying of cancer – that is not equality.

So how can people get along? I have had my fair share of exploration in which I have put myself in a bad part of the world and just hoped for the best. My theory is that people cannot always get along and that God puts enmity between different sides. The prime example is Israel and Palestinians hatred for one another – its my land or its my land. The best thing to do is to evolve to your surroundings and the people around you. For us, it is to assimilate fully and understand fully. So when is there ever going to be peace? I think that we are almost to a point where we almost have peace.
