The Shakespeare Mystery


Yes, Shakespeare, like the RRRGroup, was a writing consortium, consisting of major playwrights such as Christopher Marlowe, Edward DeVere, Thomas Kyd, Ben Jonson, and others.

The point of the consortium will be examined here, in ways that haven’t been tried before.

We’ll do, upcoming, a forensic examination of the writing, the lives, and the interaction of the writers who formed the group known as Shakespeare, including Shakespeare himself.

Admittedly, the idea of a Shakespeare writer who wasn’t Shakespeare himself is not new, but that several persons joined with Shakespeare to produce plays and sonnets is.

More to come….

The Insanity Gene


Lecomte du Nouy in his book “Human Destiny” hypothesizes that humans who will move evolution forward are mutants; that is, the mass of humanity is primitive (in many ways) and only those who are endowed with special sensitivities (talents, as it were) are capable of evolving the human species and civilization in a beneficial way, toward an Omega Point as Lecomte du Nouy has it.

(The Omega Point is also a feature of Teilhard de Chardin’s writings.)

The problem for humanity or the problem of humanity is that it is palpably obvious that the bulk of the human population is insane; that is, humanity, in general, is non compos mentis.

One doesn’t need detailed footnotes to show just how crazy humanity is and has been, since the Garden of Eden.

A cursory examination of history and media accounts of today provides ample incidents of insane behavior by man.

The pockets of humane actions by the du Nouy mutants do show up on occasion, but their existence does not offset the preponderance of mad activity that permeates human culture, and has always permeated human culture, even “civilization” itself.

The insanity is ingrained in humankind; it is, perhaps, the essence of humankind.

Since madness is an ephemeral thing, it can’t be found or investigated as genetic structures are able to be studied.

But it does leave tangible footprints, as Freud and others have outlined.

The insanity may be the “image of God” that was mankind’s creative template, and we’ll be presenting views about this probability...

Homosexual gods?


We opine in The Biblical Paradigm for Homosexuality (online at that God (Yahweh in the Hebrew Bible and Old Testament) was homosexual and/or sexist; or at least His writers were.

The examples cited in our pamphlet can be supplemented by other occasions that show the inordinate “affection” that God showed toward Abraham and Moses (among others).


For instance, the homosexual jealousy of Yahweh is delineated specifically in Exodus 4:26 where Yahweh threatens to kill Moses (for reasons a bit obscure) but is thwarted by Moses’ wife, Sepphora who cut off a piece of her son’s foreskin and touched the feet of the Lord (an entity suffused with or obsessed by male genitalia as outlined in The Biblical Paradigm…).

Morton Smith discovered an unexpurgated version of the Gospel of Mark, wherein Jesus has a homosexual relationship of a significant kind with a young man as part of a secret initiation of some kind.


In his book, The Secret Gospel [of Mark], Smith presents the passages that were culled from the canonical Mark, but some have suggested that Smith, an eminent scholar, created the passages.

Whether or not that is true (and we very seriously doubt it), a passage still intact in the canonical Mark seem to confirm the idea that Jesus was enamored of a young man (Lazarus or the beloved John) who had amorous inclinations toward Jesus:

“…a certain youth followed Him, wearing a linen cloth on his bare body and when they seized him, he left the linen cloth behind and fled from them, naked. [Mark 14:51]

Why was the young man naked? Morton Smith’s “secret” Gospel of Mark presents the hypothesis of secret rites and arcane mysticism that the Gnostics attributed to Jesus and His followers, and those secret rites included a sexual initiation it seems.


The underlying homosexuality of all mythologies and religions is palpable, going back to primitive religious rites where the Phallus was prominent.


That Jesus may have been homosexual, and God (Yahweh) was also, indicates that something was and is amiss in the theological morality espoused by the Church and entrenched by Luther and those who followed in his rebellious wake.


Thus homosexuality became anathema at the public, overt level of theological consciousness because of Protestant pronouncements, but its subliminal acceptance and ritualistic display over the millennia, while perverting the natural law (sexual intercourse for the procreation of the human species), seems to be inculcated in the genetic make-up of human kind and appears to be important to the cultural advancement of civilization, which we’ll deal with in the ensuing posts here…..

There was no Big Bang


That the Universe was begot by an infinitely small singularity is absurd on the face of it.

And physicists pursuing that notion are bordering on the insane.

But this doesn’t mean that the Steady State theory is bona fide; that notion was wiped away by evidence of an expanding Universe.

But there was no Big Bang. Such an event is and was an impossibility.

Yet there is another possibility – if Einstein’s idea of space-time is correct (and it seems to be) – which is that our Universe was created by the intrusion of a parallel universe into a fissure within the fabric of space.


That is, an expanding universe, from a dimension of the Eternal Infinity breached a crack or hole in the fabric of space and brought part of the parallel universe into our area of the Eternal Infinity, which only consisted of Dark Matter and Dark Energy before the insertion of the expanding matter that we now know as our Universe.

Was the fissure a Black Hole? Or a rending that has yet to be determined or discovered?


That is where the physical sciences need to assert theory and research.

The Big Bang never happened, and the continuing hypothesizing about it is a futile waste of (Space) Time and (Dark) Energy.

Casting pearls before....


We deal with and have dealt with some obtuse professional communities and oblique efforts over the years, including media, ufology, physics science, and theology.

Of these, only the theological community remains intact as a serious intellectual enterprise.

Media (national and local), which for us consists of news media mostly, is rife with hubris, self-aggrandizement, and narcissism of a manifest kind.

But then so does the community of physical science, where theoretical physicists have co-opted the realm of Newtonian and quantum physics, replacing rumination in those arenas with self-serving, self-promoting agendas.

As for UFOs and ufology, the conundrum and its cohorts fill the valley of thought with vile, despicable actions, confused by inebriated hoaxers and ignorance so profound that the gods certainly must be flummoxed by what they wrought when they created man.

In news media, television personalities exist, not to pursue journalistic truths, but rather to enhance one’s image, salary, and self-glorification.

But even newspaper journalists are not exempt from feathering their own personal nests, even working harder to do so since newspaper staffers have been and are considered much lower on the professional scale than their TV counterparts.

Newspaper personnel have always thought they had a handle on truths and information which no one else had access to.

TV upset that applecart long ago, and blogs are putting the final nails in the print medium coffin.

Our contact with news media for many years now has determined, for us, that those in the profession of journalism are, generally, short on intellectual acumen and
aesthetic nuance of any kind. (News people haven’t a clue about the glories within liberal arts, and this includes those who write or report on the arts for their papers.)

In critiquing media, we (and others) have had to dumb down our broadsides so that those receiving them could understand the volleys for what they are and were: attacks on the superficial and banal reportage that passes for journalism nowadays.

News media, like politics (which media worships like no other human activity), is fetid, which even the rabble that media serves (and exploits) smells.

That’s why newspaper circulation is in a steep decline and television newscasts are slugging it out to maintain viewers for their devolving influence.

While ambling around the so-called UFO community the past few years, we notice that the mystery has accumulated a raft of reprobates and scoundrels like no other arcane enterprise we’re familiar with.

(Politics is scummier but that all-consuming human endeavor is hardly arcane.)

Unidentified flying objects present an interesting, even intriguing, phenomenon.

But those involved with the phenomenon – and we cite virtually everyone involved – are clinically demented, as anyone can see for themselves by visiting web-sites, blogs, and interactive forums about the elusive things once ubiquitously known as flying saucers.

There is a meanness and psychotic etiology that should be pursued by psychiatry and/or sociologists if they want to discover the collective insanity of a large segment of human society.

The value of “ufology” and its minions, is not the evanescent “objects” and mysterious lights that persons are hallucinating about, but the malevolent thought processes of those who’ve entered the UFO realm for purposes other than a denouement of the evasive phenomenon.

Sixty concentrated years of flying disks and unidentified flying somethings-or-other have produced nothing but a surfeit of ignoramuses who feed off each other and a very limited, dull-witted segment of society.

But in science, the matter of intelligence is no better than that in ufology.

Theoretical physicists deign to pronounce on the reality, or lack thereof, of God or the gods, which is not the province if science, but of faith, and faith alone.

God can’t be addressed by science.

Even science can’t be addressed by science.

Science, ever since the actualization of quantum reality, has to step aside for the panoply of existence(s) which lie outside man’s ability to fathom.

Science can’t crack the riddle of life, or the mystery that is the Universe.

To try is to evoke the hubris of the doomed Greek heroes who meddled in “divine” machinations to their magnificent detriment.

Mankind can’t decipher the ultimate reality, whether it’s a God or a supreme natural law.

The vastness of the ultimate reality is overwhelmingly beyond man’s capacity to understand it, and those in science who think they can unravel that reality are more insane than the ufologists they demean.

Media, ufology, and science are follies engaged in by madmen, some with egotistical purposes, others with a serious chink in their mental capacities.

And for us (and others) to comment on such follies is almost as psychologically unsound as the bizarre enterprises themselves.

So, perhaps, its time to move on to more productive ventures…..such as theology or stamp collecting.

Miracles? We got no stinkin’ miracles!


A big nail in God’s coffin are all those miracles attributed to Him and His Son: the plagues of Egypt, the parting of the Red (or Reed) Sea, the destruction of Jericho’s walls, the talking donkey, the water into wine, the Resurrection, et cetera, et cetera.


All the miracles of the Bible (and legend) can be explained in physical terms, strange physical terms perhaps, but explainable.

A miracle - -a real miracle - -would be something like a pyramid hovering a hundred feet in the air, or the total evaporation of the Mediterranean Sea, or the reversal of Jesus’ time-line (whereupon He avoids crucifixion).


Today, a miracle wouldn’t consist of a laying of hands and the fainting of the person upon whom those hands laid; the miracle would take the person back in time to where their frailty wasn’t a problem.

Another miracle – a real miracle – would be for a fully stocked and ready to go McDonald’s to appear, ex nihilo, in the midst of Darfur’s refugee camps.


And a visible, rational symbol or marking, displayed suddenly on the moon, for all Earthians to see, would be miraculous.


Raising a Lazarus from the dead was interesting, if he was truly dead, but Christ showing up now, as he was during His ministry (two thousand years ago), would be amazing – rather miraculous.


God needing men to write down His words doesn’t bode well for an omnipotent Being. A true God would provide His Book fully transcribed, and without grammatical or spelling errors.


(The Bible, the Koran, and the Book of Mormon apparently were not contrived by a true God, if any god at all.)

Changes in physical laws are not possible, and tweaks that seem to alter those laws are quantum artifacts, which are far from miraculous; strange perhaps but not miraculous.

No, we, and no one else, has experienced a true miracle, and that alone should indicate that if a God exists, He’s adept at sleight-of-hand and that’s about it.

The UFO Arena (minus the phenomenon itself)


Science won’t intrude on the UFO community, and science won’t surely take a gander at the UFO phenomenon, not since the tainted Condon Committee, for the United States Air Force, seemed to eschew UFOs and flying saucers in its final report of 1968.


(Wikipedia has a thorough encapsulation of the Condon Committee’s efforts here: )

But science is wrong by avoiding a study of UFOs, since the phenomenon offers grist for several scientific disciplines, including psychology, sociology, mythology, and even quantum physics (as we detail elsewhere).


The problem for science is that they’d have to deal with the quacks, cranks, and UFO vagrants who’ve captured the phenomenon beginning in 1947, distorting its relevance by self-aggrandizement and totally inept (amateurish) investigations – and that includes astronomer J. Allen Hynek’s foray into the UFO world (first for the Air Force’s Project Blue Book and later for his own Center for UFO Studies).


The UFO phenomenon is intriguing, and curious scientists – curiosity being the general demeanor of scientists – would normally be inclined to check out such a sporadic and circumstantial presence in the upper air.

The militaries of the world have taken notice, as have news media; the former seriously, the latter much less so.

But science, in this instance, just as it has with anything in the paranormal world, chooses to ignore or anathematize UFOs, and this because of the fanatic buffoons who’ve commandeered the phenomenon.


One can’t blame science, or scientists, from avoiding the UFO arena. What have they to gain by immersing themselves in a scrutiny of UFOs which will bring them opprobrium (as it has already for some) and ridicule?

The phenomenon doesn’t have the academic cachet that science feeds upon, and exploits for it own ends: career advancement, grant monies, recognition by peer groups, and university or corporate tenure. (The seeking of truth, nowadays, is at the bottom of many scientific goals.)

Yet, it’s the foolish ambiance that UFO arena purveys which has kept the phenomenon from a niche in the scientific pantheon.

If one looks at the investigation methods of “ufologists” (the mantle the hobbyists of the phenomenon has assumed) or the grammatical presentations of their hypotheses, one will be stunned by the lack of professionalism or even an understanding of logic and a decent methodology.


The UFO community is diverse, but doesn’t include, at any level, spokespersons who give the impression that they are learned in any discipline that might lead them to a considered approach for unraveling the UFO mystery.

(One noted “ufologist” was heard to say, during a recent UFO documentary, that some UFO circumstances collaborated [sic] each other.)

There is a pretense in “ufology” that the phenomenon has been studied or investigated seriously and professionally but any perusal of the UFO material and UFO groups extant will show otherwise, and dramatically so.


Science would have to start from scratch to avoid the miscreant accretions that have accumulated around UFO episodes, many of which are, in their original form, scientifically interesting, to say the least.

Can science retake the phenomenon, and give it credibility? Perhaps. But science would have to work around the ufological vultures who won’t give up their hobby easily. UFO mavens are dogged about their avocation; fanatic, as we’ve said.


Is a workaround worthwhile? Maybe. Since UFOs are rife with attributes that may not pay off in material dividends, but could pay off in ways that are much more beneficial, to the human mythos and civilization, even if they (UFOs) end up being nothing more than a projection of mentally deficient persons, which is what the UFO arena consists of pretty much right now.

N.B. Log on to a web-site, UFO UpDates at for examples of the oppugnations mentioned above.

The Great Maw of Blogging


The seeming infinite panoply of blogs are easily comprehended, and dealt with, by visitors only seeking those that are of interest to them. That’s easily done.

But what about the comments that many blogs receive from their visitors?

Those comments are archetypally evanescent, in every way.

The time wasted in commenting by normally intelligent persons, or somewhat sensate persons – we discount the anonymous commentators who represent mental scum – is monumental; the material generated evaporates faster than ice in the Mojave.


But for some oblique reason, persons will spend valuable minutes of their lives, spewing forth opinion, rant, and sometimes valuable asides, but it is all in vain. And that the comment-makers don’t understand this is baffling, in a psycho-social sense.

This blogging syndrome is even rife at Seed magazine’s Science Blogs venue, which we’ve touted here. (The blogs are fine; it’s the comments which are transitory and often useless, in a very real sense.)


Science Blogs is an arena where highly intelligent and intellectual persons ruminate about issues in science and peripherally related matters.

If comments there are virtually useless, you can imagine how vacuous comments are at other blogs.

(Media has taken to incorporating comments and opinions of the great unwashed and have, by so doing, destroyed what little credibility media once had.)

Blogs will, ultimately, enter the abyss of nothingness that Sartre indicated would overtake humanity at some future time. (That abyss is almost upon us, if one scrutinizes the lacunae of intelligence that permeates the blogosphere and media, news media, as it exists today.)


The fad of blogging, like that of e-mail (which is being replaced by social networking sites, such as MySpace and Facebook, for teens and other cognoscenti), will terminate in a few years surely, and all the crud and dissolute ramblings, along with the few erudite posterings, will enter the limbo sate of the internet; the postings won’t become extinct, but they will be fossilized for all intents and purposes.

So why do we continue to blog, casting pearls before swine generally? And why do some continue to comment, even when they are overwhelmingly ignored or have their comments relegated to the internet dustbin?


Everyone needs existential validation. That’s why the mob congregates around the networks’ morning news shows (Today and GMA). Being seen on television confirms one’s existence, and now blogs and responses to them do the same thing, only more easily.

Acting thoughtful, by responding to blog posts, makes one appear to comprehend life and the vicissitudes of the blogosphere.


But it’s all folly, and human beings are nothing if not foolish, as Shakespeare, and others, have prominently noted.

So, we go on blogging, and some will continue to provide vapid, inane responses, and out of all this shall come certitude perhaps, or more evidence of human madness.

Where’s Waldo? (Or how science escapes INTO reality)


The CERN particle accelerator is poised to allow physicists (and other scientists) to probe the most fundamental building blocks of nature, the absolute infinitesimal reality of quantum particles.


To what purpose however?

When biochemists and medial researchers dig into DNA and genetic structure, they do so with the intent of discovering what malformations cause cancers and other diseases that plague humankind.


Their means goes to a beneficial end.

But particle physicists? What do they get with their inordinate curiosity about the structure of elemental particles?


That is, when all is said and done, how is mankind, civilization, advanced or helped by their potential discernment of the bases for reality?

One science gets beneath gluons and subterranean quarks, what does that do, in practical way, to further evolution?


The monies being spent to get the CERN accelerator/lab up and running represent an obscenity when one considers how many persons in the world are without food, or the basic necessities of life.

Sure, wars are spending much more than what’s being thrown into the CERN basket, but wars are initiated by maniacs, not supposed intellectuals.


The psychiatric mechanism that explains this behavioral quirk is called an escape INTO to reality (not an escape FROM reality).

Persons, and in this instance, scientists of the highest caliber, who shirk the reality in which they find themselves – this Earthly vale – do so because they can’t cope with the horrific human condition that pervades and prevails here on Earth.


(The Mars-probers are equally disturbed.)

The CERN contingent propagandizes, as have scientists of every generation, that they are seeking the origin of the creation. That may be so, but what happen when they discover that origin, as if CERN will be the vehicle by which that happens?

Discovering the ultimate iota or iotae doesn’t do anything for the advancement of life here, or anywhere.


Yes, curiosity, scientific curiosity even, is the promulgator of CERN (and other diffuse explorations). And those involved are not committing moral or ethical crimes, unless one posits that there are sins of omission at work in the CERN objective.

Quantum physics shows us that reality is goofy. Deconstructing quantum particles may or may not make that reality less goofy.


But if CERN does get to the heart of reality, what do we have? A clue to the Creator? A pattern that explains nature once and for all? An abyss that tells us that we’re part of a random insanity from which there is no escape?

Yes, CERN is an obsession for some. For the rest of us, it’s a psychologically induced scientific boondoggle.

And for mankind? CERN is nothing more than a search for Waldo, without the charm of that pursuit.

It doesn't compute....


Sure, evolution explains the physical advance, even the mental advance of human beings, along side the physical changes and slightly increasing mental abilities of the animal kingdom (the fauna) and, yes, the plant kingdom (the flora).

And the whole evolutionary track, particularly slow and not so deliberate – consider the dinosaurs – throws a chink in the armor of the Intelligent Designer.


The piecemeal pattern of evolution is hardly intelligent, but that’s obvious to Darwinists, and the creationists, and neo-creationists, have to accept, at some point, that the whole of creation was conceived by haphazard natural selection or a procrastinating Creator.

The universe, with its infinite longevity, is also a product of chaotic physical laws – not Newtonian laws, but meta-quantum laws – or the plans of an addled Creator.

But that’s not the point here exactly.

Avatars, such as Moses, Ankhenaton, Lao-Tze, Jesus, Mohammed, Joseph Smith et alia, all brought soppy bromides to their audiences; they brought nothing of a technical or quasi-technical nature – nothing that would advance or help humankind survive materialistically or practically.


The gods who supposedly proffered information to prophets or their alleged progeny were highly deficient in the physical laws of the universe or refused to divulge those laws for some obtuse reason.

And the promises of an impending paradisiacal Eden never materialized, and still haven’t arrived. (See Jesus dictum that his generation wouldn’t pass away before the things he promised would come to pass: Mark 13:30.)


So what is the program? Is procrastination as much a part of nature as it is for the gods? What’s the end-game? Is there one?

Neither evolution nor an Intelligent Designer, or even a Supreme Being, appears to have a conscious, well-thought out plan for humans or the Universe.

It just doesn’t compute….

The Science blogs at Seed magazine’s web-site

Seed Magazine (online at is an erudite periodical covering science, in all of its diversity.


The magazine also hosts invited blogs at its web-site (above), and those blogs are, generally, interesting and often volatile, especially by way of comments they accrue.

(Click on the left side of the web-site, where Bloggers is entitled, to find the panoply of blogs Seed endorses.)

What’s intriguing is that many of the blogs have a sexual ambiance about them, subliminal usually, but blatant more often that one might expect from the presumed stuffy academics who make up the large proportion of bloggers that Seed likes.


Some of the blogs have sexual innuendo that is vulgar, some bloggers are desirous of making contact with like souls, and some Seed bloggers are just exhibitionists.

But the blogs posts are always vibrant, and edifying; the comments even more so.

Here are some of our favorite Seed blogs - -we haven’t scoured all of them yet:

Thoughts From Kansas

A Blog Around the Clock

Chaotic Utopia

Developing Intelligence

The Daily Transcript

The Loom

Adventures in Ethics and Science




Page 3.14

Good Math, Bad Math

Dr. Joan Bushwell's Chimpanzee Refuge

Respectful Insolence

Stranger Fruit

Dynamics of Cats


So if you’re intellectually inclined, want to broaden your science outlook and/or acumen, or just want to indulge in sly sex (occasionally!), check out the bloggers at

You’ll come away smarter than you are now, and orgasmicly fulfilled perhaps.

The Blogosphere as Quantum


Nothing resembles quantum artifacts so much as does the blogging universe.

Schrodinger’s “alive or dead cat” scenario, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, and Bohr’s Copenhagen Interpretation apply as much to blogging and the blogosphere as it does to “quantum reality.”




Let us explain….

A blog doesn’t really exist until it is measured (observed), but even then the measurement doesn’t guarantee that the blog is alive. It may be dead, depending upon the kind of measurement (observation) that it gets – the “approval factor.”


The proper measurement of a blog will keep it alive, in existence, for a period of time that varies with the momentum of the blog (where it’s going, its intent) or the exact location of the blog (its content within the blog universe).


If, for example, a blog is frivolous in a mundane or unfunny way, that content won’t be measured (or observed) meaningful enough to keep it in existence.


If the intention of the blog is unclear, any measurement (observation) will be transitory and the blog will atrophy before it obtains actual existence; the time period of its transitory existence will be, for all practical purposes, nil.

When a camera (still or video) is brought into a room of persons, the dynamics within the room change appreciably.


The camera as observer or measurer alters the events in the room just as a measurement of quanta (or observation of Schrodinger’s cat) alters the quanta (or keeps the cat alive or kills it).


Blogs are as ubiquitous as quantum artifacts, and most are just as invisible.

However, a blog with atomic consequence will interact with other blogs, locally, and in the blogosphere, non-locally, sometimes instantaneously, sometimes after an insignificant duration; but either way, a palpable blog will interact.


Blogs that are without measurable substance do not exist, not in real terms. They may come into being but are so inconsequential that one can say they do not exist and did not exist.


Thus, if one wants to have or produce a blog that has some kind of quantum shelf-life, they must make sure that the blog is measured (or observed) and that measurement (observation) continues, unabated.


This is tough. Quantum reality is short-lived. But in the context of a living blogosphere, one blog (or many) can survive if it (or they) have enough substance to produce a nuclear reaction; that is, such blogs will persist forever (in quantum terms) unless someone or something deactivates them.


Measurement (observation) of such blogs is secondary to their perpetuality. Atomic blogs cannot be destroyed by mere measurement. It takes a self-induced action to kill such blogs, or a massive influx of obtuse or negative observations from other blogs in the blogosphere to undo atomic blogs.


Nonetheless, blogs, and the blogosphere itself, are always subject to the vicissitudes of quantum measurement, uncertainty, and the Copenhagen Interpretation: the potentiality of life (or death).
