Michael Gove: Muslims Matter More than Pagans, Buddhists, Hindus etc

Michael Gove’s Muslim/Monotheist bias; and therefore paganophobia; evidence of why I’ve largely been censored in UK?: At start of yesterday’s coronavirus conference (41 minutes into this news programme) he singles out Muslims and Ramadan in particular, and then mentions Christians and Jewish suffering similar.

No mention of pagans spending first spring without loved ones, or Buddhists, Hindus, Taoists etc!

Why the ‘Establishment’ also ignored the mostly Muslim child grooming scandal of the last 30 years… or it’s just economic, and the ‘Muslim (Saudi mostly!) pound’; another aspect to why Britain was kept open at the start of the coronavirus crisis later than most other European countries despite warnings from many; especially Italy and Spain!?

The mayor of Lombardy even took his children home from university to the region worst hit at the time, because he thought Britain was doing it all wrong (no airport checks, sport continuing etc), and was going to suffer worse than them if they carried on; he’s been proved right!!

Nostradamus and Me: Beyond Humanity!

Like Nostradamus, I think my writing includes a lot that could be considered prophetic for the current Covid-19 pandemic. There was a theme of self-isolation and distancing towards the end of the greenYgrey era, culminating with the apocalyptical ending, and title ‘Beyond Humanity’. It was a general feeling though, combining terrorism and overpopulation, rather than a clear sighting.

I didn’t see the extent of it in Europe and the USA even when it was making its away across from China. The first reports of hundreds of deaths per day in Italy were a big shock!

Circumstantial Coincidences?

When I posted a link to a previous post containing reference to my Children of the Quorn (Children of the Corn parody that preceded the emergence of Greta Thunberg and the school strike movement – I don’t know if she was inspired by it though!?) last week the blog post was mostly about criticising Ozzy for selling a toy celebrating him biting the head off a bat; the coronavirus is thought to have originated in bats, before getting into the food chain in Wuhan.

When I looked for the first mention of mistYmuse on this site (inspired by the end of mistYmuse 2019/20, and my mapping of my horizon posts this week) this morning the unrelated 2018 post’s main photo is of Gwyneth Paltrow, star of Contagion, a disaster movie that gives a much clearer prediction of the Covid crisis: starting in China from a bat. Director Steven Soderbergh said that making the movie made him think a real pandemic was only a matter of time!

Over the last couple of years I also watched the Ancient Aliens episode on plagues and epidemics, also from 2011, and also saying another pandemic was due. It focused on how the Fatima sighting (generally claimed as sun/religious [Wikipedia], but they think could have been a UFO) had preceded the Spanish Flu pandemic a century ago. It thinks aliens use pandemics to control the human population. I think that’s a slim possibility, but lets humanity off the hook; as blaming higher powers such as gods too.

Modern Shamen or Creative Thinker?

I have had a lot of sights, thoughts and dreams that I think could be considered prophetic, but they are all unproveable, and most people probably have them too, and if they predict disaster they aren’t usually acted upon anyway (as the current crisis shows, governments and workers are reluctant to stop the economy/travel even when disasters are happening !) so there’s no point claiming them… kind of like the vague muddled messages I saw people describing in the ‘Mothman Prophecies‘ movie about the  Point Pleasant bridge collapse.

There is one bit of data that does back up my claim that I had some kind of transcendental thoughts during the writing of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity: I had by far my best Fantasy Football Season (it was also the season Leicester totally upset the odds by winning the real Premier League, which was probably a factor?.. and probably not connected?.. as I hope the chairman’s later helicopter crash outside their ground wasn’t!).

XaW Files: Beyond Humanity

So I think XaW Files should only be bought as a brilliant book of fiction with deep thinking writer insights, but as Neil Young said about his songs, he doesn’t write them, he just writes them down; I haven’t felt like writing fiction much since, but have written a couple of short stories!

Do I think I’m as good as most of the ‘Western shamen’ making money out of it: probably, yes.
Do I think I’m as good as adult-lifelong religious shamen and meditators: probably, not.

Do I want to think myself special: Yes
Do I want to be blamed for disasters: No

So if I can’t stop disasters, and am just going to be called a charlatan, I’ll stick to just being a writer and poet; and I still believe in my work… and that it’s been criminally overlooked… but if you’ve read it, as more people seem to do than sales show… then that’s something for me.

Now, I think I’m best suited to little poetic philosophy snippets that I freely post in spontaneous prose on Facebook!

 

Knowing your Horizon; Coronavirus Contagion Comparison; Washing Hands

The note I made 18 months ago that came in useful on Saturday, for my last sunrise b4 BST photos, with the sunrise then at 83 degrees east; so I knew it would be visible:

My Public Health Contribution

Coronavirus hand-washing: a guide as I understand it.
While avoiding people’s breath seems clear, how the virus survives on surfaces has had mixed messages so far.
As I understand it, it’s if somebody with coronavirus has left it on a surface, which you then touch, and then touch a part of your body open to the inside: mouth, nose etc, and I presume cuts etc.
So you only really need to wash your hands if you’ve touched something that may have coronavirus on it: when you’ve been out, or brought something from the outside in. It’s supposed to survive on hard surfaces longer than soft, but only for hours, up to 72.
So if you haven’t been out for 72 hours and not brought anything in, you should be safe, and not have to stress about washing hands all the time.

Contagion Movie and Coronavirus Reality

I watched Contagion (2011) on ITV4 last week; inspired by the coronavirus outbreak, as I hadn’t watched it before!; and it had a lot of similarities with what’s happened with coronavirus: especially it starting in the Chinese animal food chain: Screen Rant comparison between the two.

I think Chinese culture has a lot of positives, especially the martial arts exercise and philosophy; pandas and eco initiatives; but really think they could improve their food chain; as the whole world could.

Blogging and Writing

Unlike the blogger in Contagion, I’ve tried to really provide an entertaining public service model, which is one of the reasons I haven’t made much money.

Blogging has also been useful to me for getting my views down as they happen, so I can look back on them. Today, I remembered blogging criticism of Boris Johnson (‘Well, the Chinese are showing us that that is the approach we have got to have in the future.” https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2464791/Boris-Johnson-takes-dramatic-helicopter-flight-Hong-Kong.html) and George Osbourne for wanting a ‘Chinese-style’ high development country when they visited China and Hong Kong in 2013; it was also criticised in The Guardian!

I advertise my books because I believe in them, and always will; although they have largely been ignored, as far as I know! I have been ready to hand the baton over to Greta Thunberg and her Children of the Quorn since she arrived over the horizon (linking at the last moment to the original topic in this blog post; previously unforeseen and unplanned, in true spontaneous prose style!).
