|MEGATRENDS: DINGING AND DE-DINGING|

DINGING IS LIKE A VERBAL SLAP IN THE FACE!
-- SOMETIMES BY AN INVISIBLE HAND!
"Thank you for your website! It made me believe that there is indeed a guiding force that leads you to understanding when you sincerely seek understanding. I would like to tell you of a recent experience that revealed to me the severe damaging effects of dinging in our personal lives. I was my own dinger and the result was a battle that in the past undermined my whole life.
I am extremely talented in many areas but in my own eyes it has in the past never been good enough. My energy level has usually been low. I used to feel somewhat depressed daily.
Recently my nephew and niece from Europe visited the US and I was invited to join them at the beach. One of them is 19 and I had not seen him in years. My niece is 16. I spent a great day with them. The next day, I sprang out of bed at 6am and started working with unusual energy to the music of the Beatles. At one point I was dancing in front of a mirror. I accomplished so many things that day and my life was hopeful. After reading in your website I realized what had happened to me. That day at the beach, my nephew gave me an incredible amount of attention. He wanted to know about my life and he insisted that I tell him about the screenplays I was writing. I asked him, "Are you really interested?" He said it was great and he wanted to know the end of the story. My niece gave me big smiles and she was interested in my explanation of the world through the eyes of quantum mechanics, which is my interest. All of a sudden, I found myself interesting, funny, entertaining. I felt accepted, admired and respected. No dinging whatsoever, on the contrary, only gratitude. It was as if my nephew and niece were grateful that they had un uncle like me. My sudden life explosion was directly caused by that day. I am grateful that the light led me to your website because I feel excited and full of hope all of a sudden. I have realized that I, myself, have been a big time dinger in the past and now I will set about the task of stopping that.
Thank you again!!!" -- J.V. (8/23/07)
A great deal of dinging can occur on Internet mailing lists and forums. Suppose you're a subscriber of "List X." You consider most of the other subscribers to be educated and intelligent. Some of the long-time subscribers form a kind of "insider clan" or "in-group." You're not part of the in-group. You post something you think important and of interest to the list. Your post is ignored or ridiculed. Some members of the in-group seem to take turns to come up with "clever" ways to ding you. For example, you could post a message about this report. The only responses you get are snide or sarcastic comments, while the essence of your post is ignored. The list may have a "dinging culture" with a significant portion of the posts including some dinging -- or a great deal of dinging.
Scroll down about two thirds of the way for the last one...

was the one that really opened my eyes for the dinging process!.... ohhhh, boy! a lot of work ahead! heheheheh.... but worth a try, i hope! : )
and...u know what, this reconizing the damage done by dinging and correcting it (de-dinge oneself) really has the potential of being: The Beginning of A New Era!( ! )
13 Feb 2009 @ 01:12 by archcat : Peace Vaxen
I became frustrated talking to you. That is I made myself feel frustrated. I also gave you cause to feel frustrated, which is a poor gift. I can not take it back and there is no excuse. I am sorry I did that to you, no kidding. I hope you are not feeling frustrated now, and I do wish you peace.
I know we have had differences of oppinion, and I expect we always will, but at this moment it does not matter.
13 Feb 2009 @ 01:12 by vaxen : Hahaha!
Yes, dear Astrid. I do hope so from the bottom of my heart. Ding! Good to see you again. ♥♥♥

15 Feb 2009 @ 04:17 by vaxen : Dinging subtly...
the lot of us and pretending to be a friend. No more...
I'm putting this here for my own reasons just in case it should be deleted 'over there.' I'm tired of being labelled a this and a that and everything under the sun by these people and when I fight back or rebut insulted some more! So this will be up here for a bit till the place re-adjusts and I return harmony and vision to my soul.
Gotta go now and try to de-ding. I'm sure they'll make subtle fun of that too. And to them I say: Voertsek!
jazzoLOG: Time To Go
15 Feb 2009 @ 00:59 by ashanti : Epilogue for Jazzolog
I was attempting to leave a final quote for Jazzolog above, but it was misconstrued to be a comment left for an ego. So I will frame it in a clearer manner this time.
Epilogue for Jazzolog
"This is the way the world ends
this is the way the world ends
not with a bang
but with a whimper".
Richard, you are one of the finest writers I know. It has always been a pleasure to read your blog for the sheer quality of your writing, which is rare in such a piece of cyberspace as this. The nuclear devastation that the delete monster has wrought on your blog reveals a trend. For a virus has infected this sad neck of the woods, and that virus originates in a Qasar of an ego, manifesting as a delete monster and a copypasta monster. Now, if you visit some blogs, and then stroll over to the chat rooms, you see the same glob of text copypastaed everywhere as the attempt to impose one's view on everyone, and get everyone thinking the same way, using the same paradigms, spreads like a virus.
Repetition is of course, one of the main techniques of propoganda. It is, inevitably, boring.
No more original thought, and free dialogue. Just copypasta, and you WILL adhere to this view of peace, love and light. And a virus, if it takes, simply spreads and spreads unless there is an effective antidote. In this place, there is no effective antidote.
The delete monster of course, has laid waste to your blog. As a fellow writer, I have put Cape Town Chronicles: Blue Crystal Eagle, my blog, to sleep in solidarity. For no more will I leave my words here, this place has become a vortex which sucks the life out of the words.
After this post, I will also be putting my avatar to sleep. I have no desire to be here anymore, and there is a world out there, with infinities of possibility to play in.
Better to put creative life-force and energy to where there is Life.
I'll see you on the other side, my friend.

Aweh my bokkie... you soeking with me? Been too long in the bossies hae ye? Leavin us dik bek? Too much dop made ya doos? Ek se Richards droe wors and the lekker company ya been keepin hae gesuip'd ya. The kerels are comin ta moer ma se poes. N.A.F.F.I., ne? Gaan vlieg in jou moer! I smaak you stukkend, voertsek!
Time for all the self righteous, the perfect, and the pure who were victimized by the "copypasta and delete monster" to collectively gloat, leave the place and go on a rut of self pity. False friend, there is a table on that mountain. Come dine with me there. You'll know me by my horns and the stench of sulpher coming forth from my glass. Repetition is one of the main techniques of propaganda. Looks like some buttons were pushed and a hidden course well fed. Go in peace, I'd like to say, but I can no longer wish you peace nor will I...

Israeli troops shot and killed zoo animals
By Ashraf Helmi, Videographer, and Megan Hirons, Photographer
Published: January 25, 2009, 23:25
The Gaza Zoo reeks of death. But zookeeper Emad Jameel Qasim doesn't appear to react to the stench as he walks around the animals' enclosures.
A month ago, it was attracting families - he says the zoo drew up to 1,000 visitors each day. He points at the foot-long hole in the camel in one of the enclosures.
"This camel was pregnant, a missile went into her back," he tells us. "Look, look at her face. She was in pain when she died."
Around every corner, inside almost every cage are dead animals, who have been lying in their cages since the Israeli incursion.
Qasim doesn't understand why they chose to destroy his zoo. And it's difficult to disagree with him. Most of them have been shot at point blank range.
"The first thing the Israelis did was shoot at the lions - the animals ran out of their cage and into the office building. Actually they hid there."
15 Feb 2009 @ 08:00 by mortimer : such a kill joy
I don't ding butt! Suppressive People are such a kill joy. I can tell who they are cause the suppressive people always hinting (or implying) that there is something wrong with me. I think it says that in the article above ennit?
15 Feb 2009 @ 09:55 by vaxen : Hahaha...
Yes, mortimer. That's what intitally got me started rebutting seeming endless of ages ago...the subtle hints, the innuendos, the insults and ad hominems without cease. Taking up the problem only stirred up the old pot of hatred then one has to be very careful of not getting enmeshed in it all and that's the rub. Susanna has a lot to say in that regard and I feel quite lucky that she is here for us at this moment. And I thank you, too, for seeing through the charade. SP's are always under the control of a BST somewhere out there in the deep abyss of space maybe hiding on an asteroid or such. The BSTRD is quite cool in dealing with that strange technology. Resurrection clones certainly need to be released.
Again, thanks a million for your bravery in being who you are and in taking a stance towards your own 1st dynamic which seemed also to be under attack.
Hope it will be a Sunny and happy Sun Day for you and yours. I've spotted the BST in the mass so... it's only a matter of MEST and Mental MEST adjustments at a sub quantum level.
Later bro, happy day!
15 Feb 2009 @ 15:17 by mortimer : The ad hominems
The ad hominems, that was strange to witness. This reminds me of what Max Sandor said about some people not able to hold two things in the mind at once. You and me both kindly took the time to show the ad hominem argument. They are intelligent and understand the definition of ad hominem. But it was 10 minutes later they were committing another ad hominem. Hence the mind was able to focus on the definition of ad hominem, but in practice it was lost. Seems Max is correct and some people cannot maintain multiple viewpoints.
Which brings up another point, two types of suppression. A persona who suppresses from the head could fail depending on the level of character of their target. A person who suppresses from the heart always wins. In Emotional Martial Art, redlining is a form suppression.
Military Dictionary: suppression
(DOD) Temporary or transient degradation by an opposing force of the performance of a weapons system below the level needed to fulfill its mission objectives.
Emotional Martial Artist's don't ding. Its like trying to ding water. The martial artist utilizes the opponents force as leverage, they go with the flow and are flexible. Water against Mountain, Water always wins.
15 Feb 2009 @ 16:51 by vaxen : Beautifully said...
mortimer. And I'm so glad that you see that and are able to verbalise your viewpoint for the sake of dimension and dynamic. Thanks for the DoD definition. SO many are so blinded by the light of their own scanty knowledge that when someone with clearer perception comes along all their hatreds, envies, and 'small talk,' are automatically thrown back in their face and they see what they want to see, do what they want to do yet ever so blindly. Such are the weapons wield in the Psychic Forces of the worlds Force Contingencies that the wee folk stand no chance whatsoever against their multiple tyrannies. Till now...
Many love to turn the cheek in a time of battle and then wail and moan when they are spitted on the hot grill of suppression at the hands of those who dictate the way everyone 'should' dot their I's and cross their Tees ☺. Love, bro. Max is so right as are you.
Incidentally have you seen the way jazzolog is going on and on about the word 'cunt?' Unfortunately, for him, he is mistranslating a few Afrikaner words. Guess he doesn't know the difference between a leaky boat and the Transvaal or the difference between South Cape, East Cape, and West Cape dialects of Afrikans. Puta! Heh, heh! Lova ya...
Maybe the Caracoles have the answer for him or maybe it is just blowing in the wind, the Ruah...
