Update: Nov. ’18
hello im back again

w a l k - a w a y – that's my username at Zerohedge.
While this site has been offline for the past few months, I've been pondering whether to walkaway from this website. But, as you can see, it's back.

As mentioned elsewhere, motives for this website include:

  • my 2¢
  • an obituary
  • it's a great hobby!

A blog to outline and chronicle these "motives" to be added later.

Update: Nov. ’17
tin foil 02 88

Following about six weeks of back and forth with the template developer (customizing this installation), I've had about a month to "try it out" and am now very happy with the results! Also:

  • One new ebook (The Rape of the Mind).
  • Four new import/updates from Gaian Corps.
  • Quick tour of a few new fun features.
  • Club 451.
  • Update on Perpetual Presence..
  • Beginning analysis of "the Public Domain".

The art of writing an obituary

While cleaning my inbox, this headline appeared,

The art of writing an obituary — Capturing the essence of a life in 1,000 words or fewer

The post at Medium, by Amanda Coletta, is from an interview of Ann Wroe, the obituaries editor at The Economist.

I don’t want to write what everyone else thinks of the person. I want what they thought of the world. It’s a completely different viewpoint

The Cyber Care Café

The Cyber Care Café was an idea formed while still in Idaho. After moving to the Philippines, and a few attempts to develop the idea, for a variety of reasons, that idea was put on hold. I still think it's a great idea, and still own the Cyber Care Café .com domain name, but now realize that actually making the concept work is beyond my means.

Tracing the development of this website — during the first three years of my stay in the Philippines, the CCC was my active pursuit/project and the beginning for this website.

My mother died in Dec. 2010. She was, by far, my best friend, but with her passing came an opening — I no longer had to worry about offending her as a mother, of unconscious procreation — and thus was born the tagline for Starve the Matrix, "Unconscious Procreation = Additional Coppertops".

Eventually I'll reconstruct the Cyber Care Café here, or open up what is already published at cybercarecafe.com. In the meantime, what follows are a few thoughts from the CCC website, written sometime in 2016.

Initially, the plan was simply to find a person to maintain gaiancorps.com — when I am unable to, or more likely, when I'm dead.

The generally accepted method of doing this would be setup a trust and then to amnend my will to fund that trust upon my demise.

To setup a trust, I would need a trustee. To manage the websites I would need website admin. Whether one person could manage both tasks in a fiduciary capacity, remains to be seen.

Gaian Corps, and what it represents, has been with me for about as long as I remember. In the past 10 years of retired life, I've put much effort into a better understanding of what for many years was mostly a vague feeling, and the Gaian Corps website is evidence of my dedication to this task I seem to have acquired. It's my hope to find an assistant with similar sense of purpose.

The aim of this version of Cyber Care Café is to facilitate and make possible finding that person.

In addition to the above-mentioned purpose, this synopsis serves as a platform to reach out to a wider audience and present this little-known yet indisputable fact of life. As Osho wrote inthe book of children, “Parental conditioning is the Greatest Slavery, it is one of the most fundamental problems facing humanity today. The future depends on how we solve it.”

And finally, to add a personal touch to Gaian Corps — something I've avoided in the development of that website.

RIP - Starve the Matrix

matrix animated image

As of today, Starve the Matrix is offline. All of the content which has not already been reposted on this website, has been copied to local storage. Much of the content from StM, reposted at Gaian Corps will eventually be transferred here.

Starvethematrix.com and tonylutz.com went online at the same time, sometime in 2011 — also marking a transition from the CCC project to simply building the case. StM and later Gaian Corps became a chronicle – of and for – uncovering the concept of Unconscious Procreation — a tradition to be continued here.

It is somewhat of a relief, and a small milestone, to have copied or reposted the entire contents of StM — one less 'thing to do'.

Also while upgrading this website to ver2 of the ver1 template used at Gaian Corps, I did something to the template at StM which caused a big problem — ending my ability to open articles for copying. From that point on, I could only copy directly from the contents of the database — not an especially safe way to handle the data from a website. But, everything is copied, so one less problem to worry about or fix.

Today I can die and not be sorry about anything. GI Gurdjieff [LINK]

Personal Legacy

personal legacy 320

Thinking about what would happen to the few books published at Gaian Corps led me to upgrade this website in order to import their tabbed-pages style.

The books published seem popular (with over 100k reads), and when the costs to host the website is divided by the number of viewers, it comes out to be a very inexpensive method of content delivery.

Much of the other content at Gaian Corps/StM also seems worthy of preserving.
     But how to go about keeping the website online and functioning, long into the future?

Issues to be explored…

New Look!

I'm not dead, yet!

However I ain't getting any younger …

Times change, and with them their demands. [LINK]

This new design is to allow the consolidation of three websites into one – importing much or all of the content from Starve the Matrix and Gaian Corps into this website, as well as adding a few more anecdotal and far-fetched stories to the personal information posted on this website. (About on the menu above).

An obituary?  Not exactly … maybe closer to the message in that unforgettable final scene in Sometimes a Great Notion!

Spoiler details  

Henry's severed arm is attached to the boat,
giving the middle finger to all who watch.

The economic stability of Wakonda, Oregon, is threatened when the local logging union calls a strike against a large lumber conglomerate. When independent logger Hank Stamper and his father Henry are urged to support the strikers, they refuse, and the townspeople consider them traitors. All of the Stampers live in one compound, including Henry's good-natured nephew Joe Ben.

     After aiding their adversaries when their lives are in peril, the Stampers have two calamities at once, a falling tree that severs Henry's arm, and a trunk that crushes Joe Ben in shallow water.

     Lee takes his father to the hospital, while Joe Ben laughs at his predicament until the tree trunk rolls atop him, pinning him down. Hank's desperate attempt to save Joe Ben fails. At the hospital, Henry dies after finally expressing his approval of Lee, while Hank returns home to find Viv has left him.

     Lining up by the riverbank, the Stampers' rivals look forward to seeing them fail to deliver their logs, but Hank and Lee team up to successfully transport them. Henry's severed arm is attached to the boat, giving the middle finger to all who watch.
