Hey folks, been having a shit few days due to tumour meds, so I’m off to bed early ! ‘Tis my wish you’re all well !
Thanks to Astrid, Sandor and Frédéric for being wonderful and supportive human beings and to Being, Ben and Marcus for your show of support in view of Dave’s ignorance !!! He caught me on a day when I had 3 nasty dickheads to deal with on social media, troubles with low blood glucose and had little sleep ! Any future comments from Dave will be automatically deleted as spam and I will no longer engage with such wankers !
Just something for you to contemplate. Many of you know that I have experimented with many things and investigated many things, these past 30 years. I am particularly interested in a model I have named “Aspects of Self”, which transcends our perceptions of time, about the nature of the self. While building up this model over many years, I realised and then demonstrated to myself, that I could connect with any me, anywhere, anytime.
So here’s the thing I want to leave you…You have the capacity to connect with that part of you that has died at the end of this life or any life !
Having said that, Dude’s explanation of reality as “Conjoined Space” in which the average human has about 1,200 conjoined lives attached to each original life (in each of what we would think of as an incarnation), adds a greater level of complexity to any understanding of what this you is that exists at the end of life.
I’ve been exploring this now for quite a while and spent a long time in dialogue with this other aspect. It has been a deeply rewarding pursuit and one that challenged all my preconceptions about life and death !
Anyway, I’m buggered ! This is just a quick post to spice up your day ! I haven’t yet written about the idea of being able to contact your self in the afterlife of this life but perhaps I will make a TSM on the subject in the next few months. I understand it maybe challenging for those of you with a linear view of reality or who don’t believe in life after life !
I’m curious to know, what would you ask your self, who had already lived this life ?
You can learn more about Aspects of Self or Conjoined Space or After Death Communication (with others), here on the blog or on The Something Monologues.
Hey folks, how are y’all ? I’ve been a little out of sorts since having my 7th tumour treatment injection earlier in the week. Lots of hypoglycemia (glucose down as low as 2 some days !), severe stomach cramps, twitches, palpitations and diarrhoea. But I am otherwise well ! Things are usually worse around injection time but as the drug dissolves through the month, the side effects lighten up a little ! Here’s the needle that gets jabbed in my arse every month (below) ! Apparenty it’s worth $2,500 a shot ! Thank God most of it is subsidised ! Tell me that isn’t Big Pharma pulling a conjob ! I now have 7, 3 cm nodules from my jabs, that don’t seem to be going away ! One more year to see if it makes any real difference to my tumours ! Till then, you can call me Mr Lumpy Bum !
I’ve been working feverishly on trying to complete the Dude book. I’ve just about completed my 400 page poetry book – 1 poem to rewrite and then I can put all my energy into the Dude book ! You might recall that I decided to add some conversations to the original interview. I have had so many with Dude, that I didn’t know where to start. So for now I’ve narrowed it down to a small group of conversations. I may add more later. The problem with the conversations is that I have to transcribe them from my recordings and then type them up. So it takes a long time. I have 1 more question to complete the interview and then it’s complete. I’ve also added a section on Dude’s Maxims, Dude’s discovery of a strange world where perception influences reality in a very strange way, Dude’s leaf collection and lessons on the nature of the self . You can see the draft contents page here : https://app.box.com/s/3115vd67hxkuwvavdoepzmu53m5af288. This will probably be re-arranged a little but it’s mostly how the book will look.
You can read the section on How ETs Interact Through Internal Spaces here : https://app.box.com/s/x1b5vil0i6cjynkqkmnhp80vy3ce1sx7 and see a basic diagram that goes with this section here : https://app.box.com/s/u91y12qf4clb7xx4tr95r5irfqpizweq. There maybe some errors in dates and so on. I have to check a bunch of stuff against my journals. I’ve also found some typos I haven’t had the chance to fix. This is just a draft, so please don’t post it anywhere else. It may change a little but this is the raw first draft.
For each of the conversations, I’ve included a small section on the context of each conversation. The context of this particular conversation may come across a little ‘me-ish’, a little ‘self centered’ and that was not my intention. But I don’t think the conversation would make much sense unless I explained the history of how I came to be interested in this subject and working with internal spaces and internal contact.
The conversations are literally the conversations I had with Dude. They follow a simple conversational style, much like a Platonic/Socratic Dialogue style in simple form (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plato#Dialogues / https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socratic_dialogue). When ever I talk with Dude I often ask things I think I understand, just so that I am completely sure of what Dude is saying. Conversely Dude often checks in to make sure I understand him.
If you read the final book, you may notice that some of the things that Dude says in later conversations are slightly different to what he has said in earlier conversations. And that’s because he constantly adjusts his language and ideas to where I’m at. We also tend to mirror each others language, as happens with many people in conversations. You’ll remember from the interview that Dude modifies his language to every person he speaks with. There are times when I’ve seen him speak very formally and politely to other people and then he acts like a complete scallywag when he speaks with me ! That’s just how he is. He’s a master of adaptation ! Which is one of the reasons he’s considered a great diplomat among his people and why he has the role he has working with humans on Earth !
When I started with this idea of interviewing Dude, I never envisioned a book. But then I quickly I realised it’s significance. It was only after I had finished 3/4 of the interview, that it occurred to me that some of the conversations that we’d had might make a useful addition. For a while I thought maybe I should put them in a separate book but I then realised that they actually complement many of the things that were raised in the interview.
I think the book will be about 200 pages in size 11 font. I’ll be using a similar format when I write-up the Anamika (Teal’hia) book.
This particular extract will go well with the things I’ve said about internal world contact and conjoined space. If you haven’t read or heard any of this information, this conversation may not make much sense.
I’m curious to see what you make of it !
I’ve yet to decide on how to publish the book. Whether I go solo or try to find a publisher. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. But if you know of any good publishing houses that cover this subject, feel free to let me know. I’m going to be very fastidious about who I publish it with, if I go down that path. No one that’s published anything on abduction or archons – that kind of crap !
PS. I have been wondering if I should change Dude’s public name. I have reasons I don’t want to use his real name that I can’t reveal (in too much detail). I’ve stuck with Dude because it was the first thing to pop into my head and because it’s convenient. It seems that perhaps some people think that the whole thing is a deliberate joke. Which of course it’s not ! I don’t know if anyone will take a book about an ET called Dude seriously. So what are your thoughts ? Dude or someone else ? In the novel I’m writing Dude assumes the name of Frank. As many of you know, I also use the name Anamika for my Teal’hia friend, as a cover name for her real name. But in writing about all the other ETs, I have and will in future, be using their real names. I have a soft spot for these two people and want to keep a little privacy for myself !
In this walky talky, I explore the notion that we can actually walk without distraction or the desire to label. I’ve been an avid walker for 37 years and it’s my desire to encourage you to share in the joy of walking.
WARNING : Sony Walkman, Michael Jackson and Motley Crue make an appearance in this monologue ! 😉
A few poems from 2013 about trusting our true nature.
The Flux Itself
You are and are not –
Constantly in flux,
You mistake yourself for a fixed entity
Or a fixed set of processes.
But you are neither.
You are the flux itself –
the entity and the process,
the creator and the creation,
the destroyer and the destroyed,
the blue and the sky,
the black and the stars.
Your youness is beyond the reach of words –
You are a gathering of selves becoming I,
A sense of I becoming I am.
Your Iamness is beyond the realm of feelings –
You are a cloud made of senses,
A body of senses charging I am.
Nothing remains as was, is or will be –
The flux is the carrier of all impressions,
The flux is the holder of all memory.
Letting go of all structure,
Letting go of all aspects of self,
Letting go of all like and dislike,
Letting go of all desire for time past, present and future.
You encounter the flux
Of all being and non being
And thus encounter the True Self.
In Mirrors We Are Made
It always happens this way –
Once I was his hero,
For a time I really mattered.
I was the bringer of all wisdom,
A maker of stories and kingdoms come,
A giver of dreams and rainbows to anywhere.
But now my power has weakened
And the world out there has overcome.
It began when no one was watching –
Once I helped him to take his first steps,
Towards the great destiny of his being.
The movement was set in motion,
From the first days in school to the last day on Earth,
From the first kiss of love to the final heart break.
But that is how it was
And the world in here has blossomed.
I have learned to let go –
While still holding onto love,
Letting it fill the space between us.
He has made me proud,
In his journey of becoming,
In his presence of being.
I will not hold anything against him,
For his path is his own
And I can only bless all who follow.
For each of us along the way,
Power comes and power goes.
But what really matters,
Is the way that we love them
And the way that we give of our love.
For love is not ours to keep –
Only by giving love can we free ourselves
Of the great forgetting that binds us.
I am you am us.
In mirrors we are made.
In mirrors we must trust.
What is It ?
What is it that rides inside of you ?
What is it that sees beyond limitation ?
What is it that penetrates emptiness ?
What is it that needs no meaning ?
You cannot find it by seeking.
You cannot find it through glory or adventure.
You cannot find it by becoming or believing.
You cannot find it by leaving the body or taming nature.
What is it that gives birth to life and death ?
What is it that creates mind and body ?
What is it that desires everything and nothing ?
What is it that serves and is enslaved ?
You cannot find it through the body.
You cannot find it by clinging or grasping.
You cannot find it in attachments of aversions.
You cannot find it in the reflections of yesterday or tomorrow.
It’s face is faceless !
It’s path is pathless !
It’s body is bodiless !
It’s self is self less !

I recently read Robbie Graham’s excellent book UFOs’ : Reframing the Debate https://www.amazon.com/UFOs-Reframing-Debate-Robbie-Graham/dp/1786770237 and felt the need to explore the theme of how we perceive contact with the “other”, while out walking. When I listened to this monologue I realised it was so full of wind, that I’d have to can it (which is something I’ve done to about 20 monologues). But given it’s a long one (1:45:50) I decided to keep it. So please be warned, it’s full of wind in places and there was nothing I could do to prevent it or edit it out.
In this walk I take up the issue of how humans perceive and make sense of contact with the other. We could call the other ET but it’s not always clear at the time or after, that that’s exactly what it is. I ask how conditioning, belief, perception and self awareness determine how we make sense of an experience. I also suggest that these things change across the human life cycle (brain freeze – I couldn’t articulate this clearly at the time : http://winstonwuttunee.blogspot.com.au/p/blog-page_2171.html) and suggest that every human being having an experience sits at a certain point in the developmental cycle and as a result interprets the experience in a certain way
The point I try to emphasise is that how we perceive and the level of self awareness that we have, both determine how we see the world and how we interpret our experiences.
I suggest that contact with the other is leading us to a greater understanding of the self and reality. This understanding is helping us to grow in a way that helps us to engage more fully with the intelligence of the other.
Hang in there !
How do we know what we know ? Part of how we know is by knowing what we are. In today’s walk and wonder, I explore the idea that we can know things beyond ourselves because we are more than we think we are. Not everything appears to follow causality (cause and effect), as entanglement and spooky action at a distance would suggest. Or is causality always present – visible from many different perpectives ? When we embrace a wider perspective about what we are (through such ideas as Aspects of Self and Channeling and by deepening the well of experience), we can know much more than we would normally think is possible. What is in the way of such knowledge and experience, is our ignorance and our desire to remain comfortable in our identities.
Enjoy ! 😉
Two questions :
What is it that makes you uniquely you ?
What is the you, that takes you to be you ?
Please don’t be afraid ! Let the world hear you !
In today’s walk and talk I explore the self through the Buddhist concept of the 5 Aggregates and Process Fields (my own idea, which is simlar to Alfred White Northhead’s Process Philosophy) and ask how we are to live when we can embrace a wider concept of self.
During the early part of this walk, I examine two dead sheep – who provide a real life example of the nature of the self. Don’t look if images of death frighten you. These things are a part of my day to day reality and reguarly remind me of the nature of the self.
More on the 5 Aggregates here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skandha and Process Philosophy here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_philosophy / https://archive.org/details/AlfredNorthWhiteheadProcessAndReality.
May your contemplations be grand and illuminating ! 😉
I dedicate this monoluge to Frédéric for his ongoing support and his enthusiasm for taking responsibility for his own development and for his efforts to be a better father, partner and human being ! I also dedicate this monologue to Astrid for her ongoing kindness and her continuous efforts (despite her own illness) to help others living and dead, to be free of their suffering !
In today’s stroll through the land, I explore the process that some have called Direct Knowing. There are several interpretations of this concept and in this monologue I explore what you might think of as a lower level form of DK, that I believe has greater value to us in our ordinary life. I provide you with working examples of how to develop DK through all the senses and then through the collective 5 senses.
Expect to hear lots of talkative sheep !
