Highlights of my week:
Having shamateurs claiming
professionalism & then become paranoid that the world recognise
the fact and shout “the Emperor has no clothes on”.
That they consider a lot of others who
were professional and/or recognisably performed to the best of their
rising abilities be ignored in favour of their ego is indicative of sorry state existing at the moment. That others should be
inconvenienced / punished by their selfish dishonest intransigent
behaviour makes me angry.
I am reminded of a company that for many
years claimed superb management and control. It employed people to
examine and report the same. That same company a few years ago almost
brought the American government and economy to its knees with its
need for bail out.
Why did this occur?
Everyone wanted to view a pretty picture
which was then painted to boost the viewer's egos.
Unfortunately the knowledge of the danger
of painting on rice paper became subsumed by a desire for pelf, self
admiring ego protection and loss of integrity. All fomented &
maintained by self serving litigious action, war and/or bullying threat
of the same.
I loved a question posed during the week:
If a lilly grows in a pond and each day grows to cover an area equal
to what it covered at the beginning of the day, how many days did it
take to cover the last half of the surface area if the pond surface
is totally covered in forty nine days?
Similarly it should be realised that if I
draw conclusions & make statements that have previously been
unrecognised, then an awful lot of other people around the world are
drawing the same conclusions and making the same statements! A self serving media industry seems to have developed a habit of not reporting but entertaining and driving emotive belief and decisions.
And my own question: What happens on the
fiftieth day? Lily cannibalism or genetic modification and development?
