Sorry this should have only gone to Donna at Selby email address but it
its way to Aroid L.   So I now write a less tired and hopefully more
readable courtesy version of the previous.     Aroid L friends please ignore
the mumbling dementia
I shouldn't write so much and so quickly.  Any Spathiphyllum ANYBODY?  If
its not here can
we share it?  Please?

All the Best from Ron

| Hi Donna!
| Great! Thanks for the interest, care, and intelligence.  Had expected a
| balloon from Aroid L.  Here in a cow-bog-pub land I suffer from peer
starvation and need to have conversations with myself to confirm that
everything still works.   Spathiphyllum care and worship are part of my
| fight to remain sane in temporary isolation.  Got any nice kinds which
| to be here as well as there and of course vice versa, please?!
| Ireland is the self-chosen Devil's Island to which I escaped to continue
| more and more as a freelance Nature's Free Spirit.  I have a wonderful and
| large residential Studio exclusive to one of West Cork's loveliest
| waterfronts.  I see no point in work unless moving molecules is
| It seems better to work hard at child-like play in order to find new
meaning in the
| feeling.  I now help people to become more whole by re-discovering their
selves through the wonderful Voices which represent what they are at best.
(Psycho-somatic Programming through Voice).  I was a Naturalist
re-disciplined as a Zoologist and wondered disbelievingly in various major
power groups where I was regulated, censored, temporarily silenced, but
never cornered nor head subserviently bowed or bloodied.   I never conformed
compromised on principles which I considered profoundly detrimental to
posterity.  Not being conveniently feeble minded, but rather undesirable as
a cog in a stupid power control machine, I confess to being a joyful
failure.  In
fact sometimes causing the whole aforesaid machines to reveal openly they
were not truthful or meaningful.   The sagas are more amazing than much
fiction but that's all together or nothing, follow my leader groupism. This
is the latest part of a life of re-finding the transparency and unbridled
wonder of my early
childhood before defensive mind on sentry duty interfered too much I have
yet to be a complete success in my own heart at anything, but the striving
is wonderful, joyful and momentarily even Bliss.   I do not know what role
my experiences of
Big Brother will eventually play in helping Nature along a little. for Man
the Wise.
I feel Eugenics is imminently already succeeding where Hitler with his
overt crudity failed. The flood gates are open because of mob conformity,
extremely accurate subliminal indoctrination and promotion of powerless
uniformed protest worry groups who can be placated and easily fooled.  The
irreversible stages I believe are already here.  De-tribalised material
human beings are most responsive to the new changes in human technology
benefits (or appears to benefit) their myopia.  The most puppeted seem to be
Presidents and other self seeking posterity oblivious thickies.
I have a Classical Recording Studio.  Digital Recording is PERFECT?  Huh!
Edison early 20th C squirms.
And so it is for all socially seductive, impressive dictatorial technology.
Spathiphyllum are to me the most beautifully simple and elegant of all
plants and are an element in creative inspiration.     I am only
interested in how and why they are.  Names, what they are, only necessary
reference between human minds not hearts.
Here endeth the unsolicited mumble in appreciation of your kind response
to my naivety.
Cheers from the Heart

| | Ron,
| |
| | Loved the rant. Your mention of Eugenics made my hair stand on end. I
| | been reading a great deal about this subject lately. Seems one of the
| primary
| | movers in the American eugenics movement was a professor at the
| of
| | Vermont (the state where I now live). The Germans came to the US and to
| | Vermont to study this "new science" of breeding better humans and a few
| years
| | later a fellow named Hitler played it all out for the world to see.
| |
| | The NYC school of photography recently held a eugenics exhibition of
| images
| | from the early part of the 20th century that documented US efforts to
| | eliminate "undesirables and the feeble-minded" through massive state
| approved
| | sterilization campaigns in this country. People have already forgotten
| | about this. Modern DNA recombinant research is bringing this issue all
| back
| | into focus. It is horrible to consider in light of past efforts that
| sought
| | to destroy our humanness for the sake of a so-called superior race.
| |
| | You got it right....DNA is the ultimate biometric identifier.
| | human rights issues and cost prevent human genetic identification from
| being
| | put in place on a wide scale, at least for the present. Will humans, in
| the
| | Darwinian sense, be "the one most responsive to change", and in so doing
| | choose to adopt and develop this technology as our species survival
