Very Rare Drop

For those who play MMORPG’s, you know that a very rare drop is something that you could spend months trying to get. That is how I feel these days when trying to log on here and get back in touch with friends.

Since what Americans call “Thanksgiving” until this week for what a lot of people call ‘Christmas”, things have been so slammed that I barely have time to breathe. They may not be holidays that I personally hold dear, but family is family, so I have been putting a lot of my time into assuring that the friends and family that I do have locally had a festive season.

Now that things are winding down, I plan to start getting on here every weekend to check messages – and also to start work again on my philosophy writings here in this journal.

I hope that those of you who celebrated these holidays had a festive time. And I hope that those of you who do not celebrate didn;t get harassed too much by those who do **chuckles**

Do not be afraid to stay in touch, my friends. I promise I am returning. Though replies may be a few days in delay – I WILL be replying starting tonight when i get back home from running errands.

Hello, Everyone

I wish to apologize to my friends on here.

I do not like to make friends and then neglect them. I will never purposefully do so. So I wish to explain where I have been for the last few weeks.

My logons have been rare. This is due to my at-home business I have started making custom made clothing (Gothic, Steampunk, renaissance, anime and Japanese traditional attire). The business is going very slow, so I have been doubling my efforts to get it going. It now has an eCommerce setup online, and my days as of late have been spent doing graphic design to promote the store.

I also started doing copies of the clothes that I make and putting virtual versions of them into a 3D chat world called IMVU. It is my hope that if the styles capture the attention of users, it will spread into real life sales as well. So far it has actually worked. One of my IMVU contacts loved the stuff so much that she made flyers and spread the word at a local Goth club where she lives. Oops. She lives in Canada. I guess it is time to expand my shipping to international. LOL. Fortunately I can do that in just a few clicks.

I am going to make it a point to start logging onto VF and staying in touch with my friends here at least twice a week. I would like to hear from all of you. Let me know what you have been up to and I will definitely respond today or tomorrow.

The Women of My Life . . .

I get asked often why I am single. Well . . . .

. . . I am a Rennie. I keep ending up with women like . . . well . . .

. . . ah, bugger! Just watch the bloody video! 🙂

Silence and Lack Of Philosophy

I wish to apologize for the lack of getting these philosophy subjects posted. I have been slammed with getting my web site up to speed for my clothing business. It started out so simple . . . renaissance clothing . . . then friends talked to me and I ended up expanding to steampunk, Gothic and anime cosplay. So now the work drives on of finding the proper material suppliers, and getting the logistics set up.

Fortunately everything is starting to catch up and I already have my first 3 orders on the tables and cutting. :-)

Now if only I could get rid of this migraine . . .

The Nature of the Universe

The Nature of the Universe – This is a thought that has crossed the mind of every free thinking philosopher that has ever given our world a thought. Any time we wonder where we came from, usually the question goes beyond ourselves as an individual and ends up covering a more global curiosity concerning the universe around us.

I am personally an even balance between the spiritual and scientific worlds. A lot of people who know me understand that I am a Wiccan follow of my Goddess, and that I follow her guidance on most issues of my life. However I am also a believer that, spiritual manipulation or not, our universe has been formed gradually and steadily throughout the ages.

I do not claim to know whether or not Gods or Goddesses or even a single mighty creator had anything to do with the universe and how it was formed. I do support the idea of evolution and the idea that our universe has been formed through changes of chemical and mystical means alike. I also believe that the deities that we all believe in (or do not believe in, for the atheist audience reading this, which I respect as well) might not have so much created this universe but might have also been a part of its forming.

To ask if our universe has existed forever is a question I definitely cannot even begin to speculate on. Forever can have such a meaning to every different person who thinks about the meaning of such a frame of time. I do believe our universe is constantly changing, and that it is nowhere near like it was when it first came to be. If it has been around “forever” or not is a question I am certain we will never know in our mortal lifetimes. Who knows what knowledge we might get after we die, but in this plane of existence, “forever” is so infinite that comprehending a beginning to our universe is most likely going to remain an unanswered question.

The question of who made the universe, or how it was made, is one that tops my thought process whenever this subject comes up. As I stated before, I not only believe in scientific process, but spirituality as well. I do believe in the very high possibility that there is an almighty power out there that might be in control or at least played a major hand in the forming of our universe. This is definitely a personal belief of mine and by far no claim at all to “knowing” or being sure of the answer.

Another area we look at is the reality of this universe and our surroundings. Are the trees, stars, men, and women really “there”, or are they mere creations of our minds or of the mind of a god/goddess? I believe they are really there. A lot of HOW we see things is indeed the creation of our minds. Our perceptions are definitely different from one another. You and I can stare at the same chair and see it in different ways. But this question focuses on if the chair is there at all. People do hallucinate. It does happen. But an object that can be confirmed by MULTIPLE people at the same time, in my opinion, can be stated is actually there. But if you see the chair, but I do not, and other people do not, then that chair is a creation of your mind.

Our universe is made up of so many different forms of matter, anti-matter, texture, light, chemical processes and spiritual planes that I could not even begin to comprehend an answer to tell about what our universe is officially made up of. Matter has so many different forms that a generalization is almost impossible. Scientists now use words like “carbon” or “mass” or other general qualities that can relate to our current planet. But look at the size of the universe that surrounds us. We have verified we are not even a microbial speck compared to what is out there. We do not yet know all of the materials and types of physical products that are out there. So this is a question I think will be better highlighted upon if we, as a species, ever make it to a point where we can explore deep space in ships that can attain the speeds necessary to at least start to make our local galaxy a bit smaller to explore.

As with all of my philosophical posts, these are mere opinions of my own, and I will endeavor to be open minded to anything anyone else ever tells me about their own views on these subjects. I thank you for reading this (if you really have) and I look forward to your replies and personal opinions. Only together can we expand and explore more possibilities, so please post here if you are compelled to give thoughts on The Nature of the Universe.
