The world appears to believe that as humans we have lost the ability to evolve, however that is strictly not true, if you look at human life you will notice that we are currently in a state where our race is attempting to evolve, take the case of the indian girl born with 4 arms and 4 legs, she had full use of these and was able to walk and operate perfectly normally with these, she was even reveared as a reincarnation of a previous indian god which had multiple limbs in the same way.

People often state that they dont have “four arms” but wished they did to be able to perform certain tasks, as you can imagine the extra limbs could be a huge benefit, she could carry more perform more tasks, run faster as four legged animals often move faster and more efficiently than 2 legged ones, however it is in our human nature to think that anything which is different is a disability, which is why no matter what any form of “defect” detected will be destroyed, we are preventing our own evolution; it is supposed to be survival of the fittest however if we alter or destroy these before they have a chance to even proove they could easily outperform us how can we say who is the fittest.

This is not the only case, humanity has numerous variations some of which are less viable, it seems that the only form of “evolution” we would accept is internal, which is perhaps why mental conditions are so rife, the human form is trying to evolve and perhaps learns that the only thing we would accept is a change in mental status. Of course television would like you to believe that the human race’s next form of evolution should be extra powers which vary so greatly from individual to individual, while something like telepathy or telekenisis could be possible huge variations in differing powers on such a scale would be highly unlikely as an evolutionery step. While we meddle we will never know if another form of evolution would work, there may be better humans but its in our nature to destroy anything different or change them to be like us.

In the past I have taken up try me free promotions, where it doesnt state you must be dissatisfied in order to recieve your money back, just to try the product for free send proof of purchase and you will get your money back. Well in the past I have taken up these offers and not recieved my money back, then of course as you have sent your reciept and your wrapper you no longer have the proof of purchase. Two of the companies which have offered this and not produced the funds were coca cola who make powerade, the product was a bit watery and not what I was expecting for the price paid. The other was the makers of aero who had a special try me promotion accross a number of chocolates they were producing, I noticed it on buying a pack of aero mint, it stated other chocolates which were on the try me free, some flavours Id not tried before so I picked them up to try, a couple of which I did not like at all, and still after sending my reciept etc they didnt send my funds back, so now I am put off trying products as part of a “try me free” promotion as I know that they never send the money back and are impossible to get in touch with as I have tried continuousely contacting powerade/coca cola and they do not respond, and how would I prove my purchase after Ive already sent off my wrapper and till reciept to them? Id much rather print off something from thier website and take the voucher into the store to try a product free than send off after purchase as a lot of manufacturers seem to not want to pay back thier promised “try me free” deals.

On a seperate matter yesterday I recieved a text from orange PAYG about yet another change to thier topup system, this time you no longer get the VAT saving you are now forced to pay the additional 2.5% vat regardless of whether you want to or not, and this goes into a fund for the purchase of a new phone… with £1 for every £10 you topup, of course this is more money than the VAT saving of 25p but if you think about how much a new phone costs, at least £100-£200 that would require topping up £1000-£2000 how long would that take for the average payg customer, if you are using that much credit you would surely be on a pay monthly plan with better deals and savings, imagine you top up £10 per month, thats at least 10-20 months before you could possibly have enough saved, who’s saying the system wont have changed by then? What happens to the funds you’ve saved up do you get them as a cash payout? Do you get them in credit? No I think orange would pocket it all themselves. And what about the majority of PAYG customers who would not use thier phone that frequently, a lot of people have payg as emergency phones etc where the credit is used infrequently and definately would not be topped up that often, especially with the credit crunch effecting even more people, I believe that less people would be topping up so much as to benefit from this deal.

Did they rewrite the end of the butterfly effect? I just saw it on tv last night, but the first time I saw it on tape the ending was different, in this one when he didnt have journals he watched a home movie and made sure he never spoke to the girl for everything to work out, when I watched it on tape round an ex’s when he was in the mental institution he went back to when he was in the womb and strangled himself with the ambilicle cord so that he wasnt born and couldnt ruin everything, Im guessing that ending was too dark for tv so they changed it? It makes you wonder was the ending different again at the movies? I think the bad ending works better as the one where everything works out is too open ended and doesnt explain how he is now perfectly fine even though every time he changed the past he became increasingly ill as his brain had even more thoughts crammed inside, by the end surely he had 80+ years of memories which would have drove him crazy like his father. I did wonder how the butterfly effect 2 would have worked, which I still havent seen, but it opens the possibility that it is him again trying to change things rather than someone else or his father, or a future child which would have been conceived as he killed himself before he was born and his parents may have tried again for a child. I know thats not associated with the main post of this blog but rather than write an entire article for it I thought Id post it on the end here.

I am currently watching louis therouxs weird weekends, sorry I cant spell his surname. anyway I notice that a lot of the “spiritual” methods they use can be explained through simple methods, like breathing excercises which obviousely give you a bit of a rush as your entire body become more oxygenated, and they take this to be some sort of spiritual blessing, I also noticed scream therapy being used but given some sort of divine meaning, obviousely if you scream whilst focusing on your anger as loud as possible it will take a huge weight off your shoulders, also the act of repeatedly screaming loudly itself helps.  The add this to bouncing and breathing excercises which would warm up and energise the body.  Add to that the singing and chanting which is synonymous with most cults and religions, these also help get more oxygen into the body and increase bloodflow, and people take the high they get as something associated with thier religion as they make them chant or sing things associated with thier religion whilst dancing, the fact is if you sing and chant for 5 hours no matter what you sing or chant and dance you will still get the same effects.  If you take scientologies main feature of thinking of things in the past which have hurt you, and keep doing that until it hurts less, it would work as a method of self therapy, if you dont run away from your pain and face it until it stops hurting, that works.

Its on the same lines as chi, people would have you believe its a mystical force, but on the most part its simple techniques which you can use to manipulate your body and space around you. Internal chi is in essence the tensing and loosening of muscles, whilst external chi on the most part is moving in precise ways to manipulate the center of gravity to increase the force produced on a single point.

Another thing that is always ridiculous is the way that they state that you arent meant to worship possessions or individuals etc, yet the leaders always expect to be worshipped by all as though they are a god, surely it would not be right to be worshipped on the level of thier god.  Also the fact that christianity have thier 10 base rules, handed down by god, but as you look into the history of christianity you see that they break a lot of these rules in order to spread worldwide, with murder etc being one of the main sins committed.

But I need to get my feelings out.  I just found out that the psycho is getting married, silly thing is we broke up partly because I felt she didnt love me and partly because of her psychosis and attacking me for no reason, how could she love me when she just came at me with knives and stuff for no reason, she claimed to, and she even proposed to me after I split up with her.. I still care about her which is stupid and havent been ready to even date until recently, and now that I decided I was ready to date, even though I cant really afford it, I find out she’s getting married, and not out of love because she’s in some religious cult where things like that arent believed in, but she is getting married because her religious leaders tell her she has to get married.  I cant help but feel a little heart broken.  Its silly that I still love her even how she treated me… but I need to get over her and move on.  I cant dwell on these things and let myself get really depressed and broken hearted over this.

The worst part is the women I seem to get on well with and feel I could fall for live so far away Im unable to date them as its so expensive.  How hard is it to find someone that I could love that lives nearby and can cope with not rushing into moving in together as Im just not ready to move in with someone so soon due to how things went with the psycho, and how she flipped and changed when we moved in together… She was good at hiding her condition while we dated.

It appears these days that being human is more about being secure and safe and not changing.  Every day the same old crap is repeated on tv, repeats of family guy for the 20thnth time that week, yet everyone seems to love it because they know exactly whats coming they know it word for word, I couldnt think of anything more boring, okay the first time while its fresh maybe it might get a bit of a snigger or a smile, but the umpteenth time its just brainwashing dullness and I dont want to see rehashed jokes repeated.  Most of the comedy on it is cheep digs anyway.  Also people like to all congregate in a public area where there are lots of other people around because it makes them feel safe.  It does appear human nature is just to feel safe and secure in everything and not be challenged.

Of course there are different people out there, listen to music styles, the norm is repetitive beats with repetitive singing with a repeated chorus, people like these as they know the chorus which is repeated and they know whats coming, but some other music styles like goth focus on being unrepetitive and having riffs which change and vary all the time.  Which makes you wonder if you truly could judge someone completely based on thier taste in music or tv etc.

I dont know but I think dating a psycho changed me, I find myself less tolerable of certain types of people.  After all most people are intollerable and see someone different and have to set out to destroy them to feel safe and secure with the same old clone repeat brainless individuals amongst them.

Okay so its been a while since I wrote something, a few things I was going to write about have passed like the discovery that there is a black hole at the center of the universe, well of course there is everything is circling a big black mass at the center like water circling a plughole, I think that was a pretty obvious thing, maybe origonally there was a supermassive sun which exploded and created the hole in the center who is to know, but it certainly makes the “dark matter” theory some people had pointless as the massive weight of such a large black hole makes thier dark matter mean that the weight of the universe wouldnt be stable, as Ive always thought if you have to invent something you cant prove just to make something fit youve missed something, and they missed out the weight of black holes and the mass and gravitational effects they produce.

Okay now onto the title issue, of the credit crunch and how it is a self defeating circle, as people have less funds to spend there is less need for people to work so people end up losing shifts so they have even less disposeable income which means there is even less money being spent on the economy reducing the need for workers further.  The government try to bail out failing industries but are just throwing money into nothing as it would be far better to let a failing business fail and focus on saving those which are copeing and providing support for those without work as a result.  It also appears that as a result many people are buying the “value products” but as they do it means that most shops sell out of these products, and even tv shows encourage the migration to buy lower value products not realising that by everyone doing so those that have had to survive on these all along are finding that there is no longer the option to buy these as the supermarkets run out and dont restock them very often.

On another matter related, the euro exchange rate is 1.05921 according to www.x-rates.com however when I went into the post office to exchange some euros to pounds they charged me the rate of 1.1373 which is stealing rather a lot to be fair considering they are supposed to be commision free exchanges.  I would sooner pay some commission and know what Im paying rather than sneakily be taken advantage of with a rate much higher than the actual exchange rate.

I also think it was funny how dispatches were trying to make out that the supermarkets should take a hit on thier profits of a few pence on the value products and make better quality products, the chances of that happenning very slim, but of course the general public are going to say yes they should when asked, if you went around asking the supermarkets theyre all going to say no…

Finally that flora buttery advert, gary rhodes travels the nation asking people which margerine product they prefer flora buttery or lurpack spreadable (read the smallprint) by a majority of 6 people out of 200 they prefer flora buttery, and if they had prefered lurpack no doubt the advert would have been a lurpack advert, confirming that of course the public thought what the creators of the spread thought, that the nation preferred thier product, because it was deeply bias, one of thier products or the other.  And you could hardly say a 3% majority a landslide win.
