Wow! I am amazed at the amount of response to the Indigo kid’s note from yesterday’s column. Why, I thought everyone was kinda going through this stuff and was up at the front of the “aware” line.
Rather than print all the email content, I’ll try editing down to just the nubbins of a few. Not we don’t have bandwidth…just that we don’t want you getting fired for not getting anything done today at work.
“Your Indigo boy from yesterday’s (6/18) column is a Gemini. I am one as well. Nothing spectacular, but we are blessed with the ability to see through people as if they are an open book. The knowledge comes from the ability to know a little about everything, and I would assume he has a strength with spatial reasoning and seeing connections, and more importantly the derivatives, between things others don’t. We also see both sides to a situation while other people get stuck in their own little perception of reality.
I get deja vu often, it will come first as a dream, and manifest at a later date in reality. It will be a window of 2-5 seconds and its jarring, to say the least. Some are older than others and some are more intense as well. I interpret them as a universe checkpoint, as in, something was supposed to happen. Those have occurred a few times a year since high school. I will get ‘universe syncs’ more often, and feel that has happened from keeping myself open to Universe and allowing it to flow through and speak to me. My research into the quantum world has aided in this endevor immensely.
These ‘syncs’ and Gemini abilities seem to have intensified over the last few months. I cannot quiet the mind. It is working overdrive in putting the 2+2′s together. Not all of them good. I thoroughly enjoy your daily column. Readers nit-pick because they care, and getting a response says more than the content of the email itself. I believe in the work that you do. Cutting through the bullshit and providing raw data, not rhetoric. ”
“Well George, I’m too old to be an Indigo, and not egotistical enough to claim I know everything – but I DO know exactly what your Indigo correspondent means. I have (for some months now) been wondering about this – it really can sound awesomely egotistical – but it is a kind of ‘certainty’ feeling about some areas of knowledge.
A sort of unconscious or subconscious ‘putting together’ of assorted items that results in a sort of ’100% knowing’ that this result is correct, this IS how it actually and really IS. From what he says, Mr. Indigo is way ahead of me in this ability; however, what he is saying definitely relates.
I find that it will also ‘backtrack’ – things that I have thought / felt / wondered about for a year or three suddenly get verified by some new observation of science, and I just shrug and think – “Yup, they’ve caught up – so that kooky idea was right after all!”
This has absolutely nothing to do with ‘belief’ or ‘faith’; you can ‘believe’ in (say) London, even though you’ve never been there physically and verified the place for yourself. But if you’ve physically been there, seen that and walked the streets, then you Know London is real. You don’t have to ‘believe’ in the fact of ‘London’. You KNOW it. That’s what this feeling is like.
IMHO, this could be a hint of evolution occurring ‘on the run’. Are our brains accessing new areas, new abilities of discernment due to changed solar output, or cosmic input, or whatever? I have a feeling that the key to it is trust. Trust your knowing, and go with the flow – yes, we’ll all make mistakes, like falling off a bike – but eventually we’ll be fit for the Tour de France! ”
Not everyone buys this Indigo Children stuff. Some examples from that pile of emails:
“Indigo child reminds me of a certain Ph..D. relative who thinks he is right about everything. Everything! But experience shows that he is not right about everything even though he got a perfect score on his SAT. Not always right, but makes life hell for some other people?”
Tell the ‘indigo person’ that they do not know nearly as much as he thinks he does. Almost NO ONE on this planet has ‘free will’ — they are total slaves – and their master is their own BELIEFS — just like him! Whatever beliefs are indoctrinated into children then control the rest of their lives — what is good, bad, right, wrong, etc. etc. —
The rest of his feelings and knowledge are not so special either — been doing that all my life — back in the 60′s as a teenager in high school I wrote a paper on how corporations and big money had taken control of our government — the teacher flunked me and said I didn’t understand the ‘checks and balances’ of our government – HA Ha – guess I should have been teaching the class instead of that fool — who BELIEVED in things !! So tell him to read G. I. Gurdjieff - Castaneda – Ouspensky — and more — and for most people THERE IS NO FREE WILL!
Another reader said she had a similar sense of “Knowing it all” at age 30.
But now – somewhere north of 55 years old – she was pretty sure she didn’t know much of anything.
Mark Twain’s old story went something like “When I left home at 15 I couldn’t believe how ignorant Pappy was. But when I returned at age 25 I was amazed at how much he had learned…”
Perhaps the Indigo experience is real, but I’ll put a $2-bet on another option: That “mass media” is now so all-pervasive” that we can be fully immersed in an irrational world and believe that’s normal and believing it, we know everything.
Not often that we actually assign homework prior to one of our Peoplenomics.com in-depth reports. But, this week we need to do just that. So go over to Clif’s site (here) then download and listen to his outlook for next spring into summer since that will be the topic of tomorrow’s report for subscribers.
From a reader:
“I don’t know about the explanation you wrote after that “I am an equal rights kind of guy”. Sounds rather like communal-ism, I mean Communist, doesn’t it? To me, our system while trying to effect equal rights, is supposed to be about equal opportunity, not equal outcomes. Or, am I wrong about that one? I do see what you are saying though. What’s equal about an opportunity when you start with Daddy’s fortune. Huh? Gee I’m in a ‘quizzlement” now.”
Your quizzlement is easily dispelled. Equal rights means everyone into the same starting blocks for the Race through Life. It doesn’t mean everyone finished at the same time (or we’d all die on predictable days) and it doesn’t mean finishing with the same accrued wealth.
All I’m saying is that an inheritance should keep everyone within sight of one another at the starting gate. (I’m all for equal education, too, so we can do away with elitist-spawning Ivy schools, too. Kind sports teams do with the drafts to keep the field level. Seems OK in sports but not politics? Pliers?)
Inheritances that allow some to construct a separate track and run it as a kind of Special Olympics for the rich, while the rest of us are scrambling is the point. That’s gotta go. Of, if it doesn’t the country will.
Or already has. Sorry.
A Note to Survival Woman
“Hey SurvivalWoman (Gaye over at Backdoorsurvival.com) – great article oon the “Ten Healing Herbs You Can Grow Yourself in a Healing Garden” but (ahem…) there’s this 11th Herb that didn’t get mentioned if you know the one I am talking about?” (I only counted nine but I was still asleep at the time).
The herb I’m speaking of, of course, has various names including champagne, AK-47, Vancouver Island blue lightning, and Maui Wowie….but just sayin’… If you’re gonna talk healing herbs, a few seeds for a rainy day, know what I mean?
Admittedly, this one (the ‘need a card for it’ one) might be another to toss in the mix. Tumeric might be interesting for those with hypertension (blood pressure) issue. My two-cents worth….
Around the Ranch: Writing School
With the heat of summer here in the outback, I got to thinking about our plans for the fall last night while we were noticing how absolutely cold 82º degrees is when there’s a breeze and your blood has been thinned a bit by being brought up near boiling for weeks on end.
Of course, that may have been helped by a couple of shots of my new favorite tequila, Viva los Sanchos. Or maybe it was just the humidity was down from raw steam to wilt.
Going back inside to warm up, I got to looking through course offerings by the local community college and thinking “You know, I ought to take a self-improvement class of some kind.”
So I set about studying the course list. True, a refresher in basic accounting might be interesting, since it’s been a while since I’ ve hard the urge to set up a T-account for anything. But with QuickBooks, there’s no need to ante up tuition just for that.
Say, here’s a course of statistics! But upon reading the syllabus, all the terms were still familiar to the point I wondered by Poisson distributions weren’t listed. Maybe the Trinity Valley Community College knows Poisson and poison are just to similar and folks might get the wrong idea about the class. But wouldn’t that be truth in advertising?
OK, I skipped that one, since I’m more interested in honest work than employment in my 70′s as a statistician or as a professional gambler.
But then a couple of writing classes caught my eye. I got to wondering if maybe it would be a good idea to take a few classes to brush up on typing to reduce error rates. No, my hand position is all wrong for that and I’m an old dog. Besides, on plain text the morning columns fall out of fingers at 60-110 words per minute.
Still, I kept looking and I came upon some English Lit classes. Sure I play fast & loose with punctuation. Alright, maybe I could learn how to take time to spellcheck my work. Gets me to wondering, though, if there would be much payoff from such efforts. Would UrbanSurvival rival Drudge if everything was just so? I serously doubt it.
On the other hand, like the martial artist who comes to town and has to register his “fists of fury” with the local police since they are “lethal weapons” maybe a class or two to fine-tune my long lost punctuation and proofreading skills would be worthwhile.
I’l leave that to you figyh0 [c3b nasn mojds worth it.

The Dandelion and the Bank Vault
Two recent investigations – into human replacing manufacturing and the future of state controls over how humans operate – have come into unexpected focus this week as a story about dandelions and bank vaults gives clarity into the path toward the future. Before we go there, however, a few headlines on what could be a momentous weekend of change for a couple of critical governments and of course, our weekly ChartPack.
Safer Computing: Swearing Off Cookies
It has been a while since I roared the praises of the Maxa Cookie Manager which you can download and install for a free test drive by clicking here.
To upgrade from the demo to full working is still less than $30 (During their Spring Sale) and one heck of a bargain at that, if I do say so.
A new version of Maxa is due shortly (V. 6.0) and we’ll advise in due court when it is due for release, upgrade paths, and all that-there kinda like stuff.
