In the child’s game of rock paper scissors  where rock destroys scissors by crushing and paper destroys rock by slicing or scraping and scissors destroys paper by cutting one of the three objects will gain ascendancy if an even selection is not made by the players regarding which they choose to be but fortunately time will determine an even selection result by the law of random probability and thus balance of power despite intervals of power imbalance however if the game was never played at all there would be no destruction as the power is not used and therein lies a fundamental problem in life of immature game players who are only mindful of a game and its rules but not its consequences . 

If one is critical of the clothing worn by somebody then they have no desire of knowing what lies beneath the clothes and conversely if one is not critical of the clothing worn by somebody they are desirous of knowing what lies beneath the clothes so it should be apparent what will determine the clothes one will wear and what is what or what what is and what is not what or what is what not

The rules of most current recreational games and sport are designed to end or kill the play as quickly as possible instead of maintain or continue the play for as long as possible so such wayward mentality is ultimately upholding and reinforcing the overall flawed concept of competition against each other instead of co-operation with each other

There are only two types of fool namely winning which always is at the expense of others and losing which is always at the expense of self but fools view winning at the expense of self and losing at the expense of others so the fool has fooled the foolish into being fools

Success is merely failed failure that fails to fail which means life is always failing or else
it would cease to exist while that which succeeded to succeed always succeeds in
succeeding without fail to be successfully successful regardless of everything failing

Wisdom may only be found by question the fool the answer so it is not enough to question the fool and answer or answer the fool and question or question the question or answer the answer for without the fool there is no question to be asked or answer to be given

Something requires nothing but everything requires something and not nothing while anything requires everything which means all things are dependent upon each other
so an independent must not be something or anything or nothing or everything

Something came up is the lamest excuse that can be offered for anything except in the case of prostitutes and those who enjoy sex which between the two could include everybody thus making that excuse the only one ever needed lame though it may be

Although only two types of fool exist there is more than one fool and individual fools are many but if a fool is not of two types wisdom has been found and the lie is no more

Doing something is better than doing nothing  except  where doing nothing is better than doing something so it all depends upon the doing and not upon the some no thing

A male sees the vision and a female feels the vision and a mystic knows the vision but a human being experiences the vision often without seeing and feeling and knowing

It is sexually impossible for a man to be with a man or a woman to be with a woman as both a man and a woman are defined in terms of each other and not one another

There is no such thing as procrastination if fate intervenes to prevent something from happening or not happening and that includes things caused by procrastination

If twins ever appear together they would be same of the one instead of one of the same

Those who live by the rules cannot possibly die by the rules for they are already dead

Doing nothing is none-the-less doing something even though it is not doing anything

As ones wage or salary increases the ethical component generally decreases

More is less when there is enough and less is more when there is not enough

A mistake within a mistake cannot be a mistake despite it being a mistake

Anything is better than nothing but not if nothing will exclude everything

Left will be right if right to be left and all is right if left to right

Everything is a lie except the lie itself which is the only truth

All is in perfect balance until it is weighed and weighted

Less law is best law while more law is best lore




All beginnings result as the ending of something else while all endings result in the beginning of something else so a sin only ceases to exist if there is no beginning and without beginning there is no need for something else ( the perpetrator of sin )

Perfection alone does not exist because all things are imperfect but perfectionism does   exist by virtue of the perfectionist who can only be perfect in being imperfect




The path to knowledge is knowing what should be known is called know how while the key to knowledge is knowing that know how should be known without the need of a key for when one knows know how should knowingly be known then one already knows how

An opportunity presenting itself and being accepted could form the reason of anything
but the reason for such acceptance should always remain unknown so the question of
why cannot be determined otherwise opportunities would never present themselves

Wisdom is long in the making short on the memory and rarely utilised when needed

Insight comes as a flurry and is fleeting but its intensity will depend upon the lead time




Good laws only exist so bad laws can be effectively countered but with elimination of bad laws there would be no need of good laws and hence no need of any law which means all law is effectively bad and thereby should not exist but without law there would be no lore  

When faced with only two choices it is usually better to find another option which means there are now two alternatives of either the choice or the newly found option but the problem of one or the other has not been eliminated by this form of thinking or thin/king

Just as the visible reflection of a pond becomes apparent by the position of its viewer and an unbroken medium of water so the reflective ponder or pond(er) of words in a sentence only becomes apparent by their position unbroken by punctuation or punch tuition

Creativity comes as a flood that allows creation but it is the same flood which exhaust and drowns the creator and their creative ability except for those who float and ride the flow of the flood to recreate another time

One may only find the necessary if they first know the unnecessary however this cannot be determined unless the unnecessary was originally or origin ally ( to ) the necessary

Sex is not a desire but merely an exercise requiring animal ( a/nimal ) effort to produce minimal ( mi/nimal ) desirability for any other activity

If not for not what would be the state of all things and not the question of everything so a statement will always pose a question when it is not

Fear should be given its rightful passage or rite of passage but it  must always remain a passenger and never given the position of driver

If not for things being said nothing would be written and if not for poetic licence nothing would be worth saying or worth writing

Things must be within reach for their obtainment but just because something is within  reach does not mean it can be grasped

If something is not missing nothing would be found so discovery is merely the uncovering of that which already knowingly exist

Thinking ones self superior represents the quickest way of being thought inferior but nothing much will happen otherwise

It is not wise to condemn the wiseguy as they are actually a wise guide and thereby a pathway to wisdom or wise domain

The power must not operate for something to be repaired or re/paired but the repair may only occur if the power is still there

If anyone out there finds the meaning of life they should divulge its location or lo(w)cation as it may be of passing interest

Nobody can create as it is only the existing being re – created and this always occurs during recreation or re/creation time

A fundamental question of life is whether pre-entry is better than re-entry or whether any entry is better than no entry

Provocation is sometimes the best stimulus for becoming provocative and also provoke responsive despondency

If the message cannot be conveyed by content within a page then one should not seek outside the page content

It is against the law to impersonate another person so nobody should become a person and risk impersonation

Economising means having more usefulness in less space and not a greater expanse of least usefulness

A point mark ends a word sentence but a point made within a sentence can only be felt and not marked

Two wrongdoers will always out do a do gooder while two good doers will always out do any wrongdoing

Familiarity or famil(i/y)arity only breeds contempt in a family and not a community or common unity

Something should always intercede any procedure otherwise the procedural outcome may prevail

If something is not shared it does not exist but nobody should be told this because it is a secret

The problem with life is that some take it too seriously while others do not take to it at all

The main trouble with life is that too many take it and forget to leave it when they should

Continuous and continual mocking of seriousness eventually becomes serious in itself

Workers may carry the load but all are burdened by the load produced

Before living life to the full one must first learn how to run on empty




Following all the rules will produce a poor result while breaking all the rules will produce an unpredictable result so a desired result can only be obtained by knowing  which / witch rules must be broken hence  effective / affective  spelling should never be under estimated or under valued and this thereby makes all things dependent upon desire and desirability

If somebody ask themselves whether something requires doing and answers no but do it anyway it simply means they “ know ” the answer beforehand whereas if somebody ask themselves  the same question and answers yes but does not do it that simply means they did not “ no ” the answer beforehand

An object is normally missed only when it is not present and not missed when it is present so there should be no concern when an audience appears not to grasp the object of the subject because the object of a subject which is not thing can never be missed as it is always present or pre/sent

It is better to stimulate thought rather than provoke thought for provocative thought is thought provoking whereas stimulative thought is thought stimulating so it should be apparent that stimulation by thought is more desirable and provocation by thought is less desirable

One should not cease creating at a certain number as they are indicative of limitation and not creativity which has no bounds however the answer to all things lays within the number forty two or 42 or for two or one word and one number or the creator and the creation

If thirty nine steps are outlined then stating this becomes one of the outlined steps of the embodiment thereby making or ma(r)king forty in total which doth mean after any last step there will exist one more but only if the embodiment is outlined and stated

Although love is born of the ego it simply means finding ones self within and through others so the ego should be given its rightful or rite/full place in the creation of all things and never unduly suppressed or restrained nor inflated beyond constraint

Despite punctuality everybody will be late at the very least once in their lives as the names on tombstones and plaques at cemeteries will testify which means the only certainty in life is death and lateness making lateness merely a lack of form

Nobody should be critical of those who attend something without being attentive because attentive attendees will only give attention to attentiveness while inattentive attendees will give attention to everything else except attentiveness

A wandering hand is better than the hand which has found its target and lets loose without first letting go while a wandering mind will never find its target but at least it does let loose after letting go

Forgetfulness is the surest way to remain ignorant when escaping earthly concerns so one should never escape but wait until they are ready to leave before becoming forgetful

One might exclaim “ my word ” after somebody has conveyed something beyond belief in conversation but beyond the word only lays make believe which is not of my word

Change although constant will occur slowly but the tangible enactment thereof does occur quickly and unexpectedly so everything will operate according to a variable constant

Those who are never satisfied will always hunger while those who are satisfied will die hungry but those who do not seek satisfaction will never hunger or die hungry

Those with a mind for creation are usually not mindful of their creation so that which is created must develop its own mind to survive the mindlessness of their creator

While words are written on a piece of paper without meaning the words themselves will have meaning but only to those who can read what is meant by the words

It is always better to know the way not to go for that is the way to know the way to go so that ultimately means knowing the way not to go becomes the way to go

Everybody is endowed with a conscience but unfortunately some use it less than others while there are still others who have yet to make its acquaintance at all

It is not what one knows or who one knows but how many one knows that will better place one as all others each know something that one does not know

One who defies the natural order is legendary but one who defies the unnatural order becomes a legend and gives birth to the never ending story

Food for thought should be ravishingly devoured and savoured while food for eating should be simply digested and divested

One who uses mind over matter will prevail over everything but one who is mindless of matter will prevail in all things

Pearls of wisdom are the only ones with any value

Rest will only occur after the storm from the calm

Desire doth form the basis of all things




No / thing can be given meaning unless analysed and assessed and appraised but those with the ability to do so never analyze or assess or appraise except when analysing and assessing and appraising they who analyse and assess and appraise .

Twenty six word sentences which knowingly twice include all twenty six alphabet
letters will quickly become puzzling incomprehensible frivolous vexatious
inadequate juxtapositional junk devoid of meaning

Nothing is ever decisively chosen as everybody is defined by their decision of choice while
classed by their choosing to decide or de / side

All things are meaningless until given meaning by those who are meaningful

The only thing a face mask wearer cannot hide or mask is fear of not wearing one

The only class of people who can wear a face mask without it appearing misplaced would be the police because they have everthing to hide and no face or aspect worthy of show .

The ability of wearing a face mask with no ill effect could be advantageous for an applicant seeking paid employment but only if a prospective employer could be convinced that face mask wearing will not affect the health of the wearer .

Medical centres are refusing entry to unmasked people so apparently only those wearing a mask are considered sick and ill and diseased while those not wearing such are thereby  officially confirmed and acknowledged as fit and healthy by virtue of such refusal .

A bad person is generally recognised as such by wearing a face mask and in the past was only applicable to an insignificant number of the population but currently the bad people out number the good people so that ultimately doth reveal the whole world as a bad and unworthy place by the absence of exposure and the prevalence of masking .

Those who apportion blame are either top class mathematicians that have never applied the inverse square law in the outside world or bottom class professionals of the inside world that have never squared an inverse law .

It is said that one should never allow the truth to get in the way of a good story but if it was said that one should never allow a good story to get in the way of a better story the truth of a story would be revealed .

It is better to work with what one has got and can get rather than seek what one has not got and can never get as application directed toward the obtainable will eventually unlock the door to the otherwise unobtainable . 

A willing worker without talent and ability is a much better proposition than an unwilling  worker with talent and ability but a thinking worker without talent will generally have ability that will far exceed any talent .

Opportunity at any education institution will only be limited by the number of doors the students are allowed to open . 

Because the temptations of the tempters are many and the resisters of the resistance are few temptation will eventually be outnumbered and overwhelmed by temptation itself .

The level of intelligence in a human being is entirely determined by the degree of connection that has been established with their endowed conscience .

Intelligence must always be preceded ( or pre – seeded ) and guided by conscience .

One should always take a backward step before they make a forward leap .




If a sex partner uses a headache as a reason for not partaking why does the other sex     partner generally assume that their sex partner either has or has not a headache and not     they themselves being the headache ?




If somebody on a particular day doth eat what normally is eaten for both breakfast and lunch at dinner time although not eating at breakfast time & lunch time and not eating any other food on the day then why has that somebody both missed & not missed two meals ?




If collectables are delectables then that which is not collectable is also not delectable but if the delectability of something cannot be determined without it first being collected hence sampled why are some things that are considered uncollectable also delectable ?

Hoard  the  best
Ignore  the  rest
Remember  lest




With  earth  of  old
and  berth  of  bold
comes  bliss  of  loss
and  miss  of  floss




Thou  surely  dost  twirl
when  taking  thy  swirl
but  that  be  better
than  din  of  spin
for  there  the  inner
works  its  way  thither

Also a thing is that almost all digital cameras are available equipped with some sort of zoom lens so that more or less of any scene to get included through ‘zooming’ in and out. These changes in focusing length are generally reflected from the viewfinder and on big display screen right at the back of the exact camera.
