Cancer, vigil, update.

After 40 hours nearly straight sleep at my friends house while and after the chemo pump was on me last weekend my body is back to normal except for my digestive tract. That is where the cancer started and it remains a distressing disaster. My belief that generic drugs and brand are always the same is shattered. Thank goodness it seems I was wrong. The Rite Aid brand imodium that I asked a friend to get me, mercifully now, seems to be useless. Just today I switched to the form given me by my doc and for the first time i'm bound up. Hallelujah. Please God, let it be so.

This is day 421 of creations death vigil. While maintaining the vigil I'm on a second pass of a book profoundly well tracing the intellectual roots of doctor Martin Luther King. We are taught everything by our schools, religious institutions, media... in this society except that which would make us loving productive sane healthy joyful creatures. Oh how I wish I were exaggerating.

Unless something changes, my cancer treatment is terminated due to the lack of suitable housing. Biblically generous housing offer from my suburban friends is un able to accommodate my intestinal disasters. My working class Hispanic friends in the church that feeds us on weekends has arranged to rent a room for me during treatment. They work all week just to survive and to minister to we homeless. I cannot allow them to take on this additional burden.

There remains a hope. What should have been but was not offered me by way of information months ago I enquired and secured for myself from my wonderful cancer doc on Thursday . Medically I do not need six weeks of housing. 3 times I need housing for 5 days for each of my treatments. For this limited time the CCNV infirmary would work fine for my requirements. I've placed that inquire re with my friends with unity healthcare and hope to learn Monday or Tuesday if this will enable my treatment to continue.

The more I study theology and so called Christianity the more I see a profound, total, massive distraction from and replacement of what Jesus lived and died to teach us. I wish it would all disappear. I wish it had never grown up like I wish the cancers in my liver had never grown up. The body is infinitely healthier without it.

To say that one is Christian is as absurdly uninformative as to say that one is biological, that one is comprised of Adams, or resides on earth, or speaks English. To say that one is Christian is just ate nothing of the of the remotest cognitive value. Meaningless to the point of absurdity.

Truth. Women cheat first. As soon as they land the guy they start their affairs, they transfer their loyalties to food, stuff, girlfriends and kids, usually in that order. And they don't expect a guy to start cheating? WTF!

nd A homeless lady gave me a dollar yesterday. Today it was a homeless or poor young man. Both times, I was busy at work at the vigil, totally absorbed in my work. ' here you go friend,' and off they went. ' bless your heart,' is all I could offer as they left. ' some people are so poor that all they have is their money.' that's a quote of something I saw the other day. That's the truth of what I see as the essence of our Cancerous Society.

To a friend that watched today's vlog -

Seeing as you watched the vid, you should watch for my posts tonight and tomorrow.  I needed to see, and to say, what I did in that vid, but it was not the end, it was a new beginning.  If I'm to be forgiven for my ways at all, this quote may be a reason why:

"I never know what I think till I've read what I've written," Faulkner (paraphrase).  So it is with me. I make no apologies but I understand it makes for a rough ride.

The French Resistance, German Underground is not an analogy for today, and I was momentarily feeling that it was, deeply. No. Not at all.  The French, and millions of Germans SAW the machinery crushing them.  Many responded in cowardly ways, but 'seeing' it still made them available 'victims' to be inspired to join, to act, by others.  No, again, The Matrix.  We have The Matrix.  Today's kids, the Victims, are tightly screwed into the Matrix pods. I'm not slandering them. But this is how they are responding. My God, the exceptions - some of the Tar Sands Blockade folks.   But their continued micro-numbers to me only proves that their generation is the first one totally raised in the matrix, totally addicted to stuff, not a snowballs chance in hell of them recognizing, embracing, and responding to their victimhood.  No, not like the Fr. or German resistance.  Not like women's suffrage, apartheid, vietnam war, civil rights - where there were huge numbers that recognized, tho would not initially confront, their victimhood.  The Matrix. 

I no longer expect to terminate treatment, not that anyone should care, but just for the record.

No, the only life worth living in the future will be self-lessly Loving our global neediest; and no, life expectancy will be short, and brutalization, high. But the psychological experience will be Heaven, as long as it lasts.  Hispanics I think come closest, but spend their lives trying to work for rich folk.  But humble, and I think, joyful servants, as a group.  I must see how to help make that choice more available to future generations than it would be without my efforts. Least, that's my hunch for me right now.  Pretty much what I'd been figuring before today's important detour.

The way of unviolent action is to overwhelm with grief, thru undeserved suffering: * 1st. One’s fellow victims * 2nd. Onlookers possessing humanity. This is the most powerful weapon. But it requires: * A. fellow victims alive enough to see that of themselves; and * B. it requires humane onlookers. Seems certain we don’t have .0001% enough of A to ignite B to stop ecocide.


I THINK THAT OUR ONLY DUTY NOW GIVEN CERTAIN ECOCIDE IS TO TRY TO SHOW OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WHAT LOVING LOOKS LIKE: BEING A SPIKE IN THE MACHINE THAT IS OUR INFINITE SELF-CENTEREDNESS, THAT IS FINALLY DESTROYING ALL.

Hours later I recognized my huge mistake in the following, and in the earlier vlog. Updates here:

***** The Bible Tells Us When A Fetus Becomes A Living Being

Picture
Deep Breath by Melanie Weidner
Many people think that a human being is created at the time of conception but this belief is not supported by the bible. The fact that a living sperm penetrates a living ovum resulting in the formation of a living fetus does not mean that the fetus is a living human being. According to the bible, a fetus is not a living person with a soul until after drawing its first breath.

After God formed man in Genesis 2:7, He “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and it was then that the man became a living being”. Although the man was fully formed by God in all respects, he was not a living being until after taking his first breath.... http://www.thechristianleftblog.org/1/post/2012/10/the-bible-tells-us-when-a-fetus-becomes-a-living-being.html

Chemo update: 38 hours and counting on near continuous sleep. No appetite, near 0 calories during the same time. Slight nausea and headaches. My hips are unhappy with being in bed so long. I'm trying to let my body find bottom so I can start working from there again.

Chemo update: I've done little but sleep for the last 24 hours. I don't feel well but I don't feel badly yet. Slight nausea, so far. Zero appetite, which is normal, but not good. Pump was removed at noon, no problem.
