2019

20 18
18 is Life in Hebrew: Chai.
So last year was "To (2) Life". I thought it would be the best year ever. We are still here so it was amazing, but financially at least it could have been better. So perhaps "2 Life" meant Life Created and as "babies" we must first learn to eat, walk, and other things.

20 19
20 is Reish in Hebrew. 19 is Kuf.
Together they make Ryk. Rich in Afrikaans and German.

So let's pray for a rich year for everyone. Maybe it's not about the money, although obviously we all want to be here in January 2020, which will be Roar (like a Lion).

We are blessed to be here. We are renewed every night as we sleep. We wake up with new inspirations and new opportunities each day. Each day, God gives us an opportunity to be a partner in creation. And every day we should do something small to replenish the earth and make it just a little bit better.

I judge myself. I am hard on myself. I have high expectations of myself. Yet God does none of these. God gives me an opportunity each morning to be exactly who I want to be.

My first words in the morning thank the King. Yet, which earthly king do I have access to? None. Yet the Modeh Ani prayer puts me face to face (PaNaV, L'Fanecha) with my King, who supports and loves me, and who is the King of the Universe, Living and Eternal, ever Faithful (Emunah).

In Hebrew, King is Melech. Melech has the Hebrew letters Caf, Lamed and Mem. CLM. CaLM! God is CaLM (under pressure). Of-course God is above (without) time, so God has no pressure. These three letters are the middle three letters of the Hebrew Alphabet. In complete harmony and balance. What Buddhists call "The Middle Path." It's not about sitting on the fence. It's about being Open (Chesed) to all possibility and not having "mind poisons" (Buddhist and Jewish). Mind poisons are called poisons because they poison our minds and so we don't see the Whole Picture.

eg: when we get angry or when we get jealous or when we get excited, our mind closes. Imagine that someone makes you angry, you start thinking about retribution, and you start taking out your "guns". Guns are the opposite of Snug. Just like Evil is the opposite of Live. We cannot possibly be snug and in harmony and balanced if we take out our guns. And Gun's opposite is Nug (Nudge): so much easier to nudge someone in the right direction, than to shoot them (down)!!

We have to be Open to all possibility. All the time. We need to work hard to see the Big Picture, and this starts by seeing Small Pictures that make up the Big Picture.

Whole is ShaLeM in Hebrew. ShaLeM has the same letters as ShaLoM, which means Peace, as well as Hello and GoodBYe (God Bless You). When we are Whole, we are at Peace.

Melech is CaLM. CoL (two of the Consonants with a different vowel) is Everything, the Whole and C and L are the 11th and 12th letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, right in the Middle, in Complete Balance.

AMeN: An Acronym for El Melech NeEman. God, King, Faithful.

PS: God is not God's name. So I'm not hassled about having a - sign, like G-d. To describe God by using the word "God" is belittling for God. We'll have more discussions about this as well as MeM, and so much more.

Shalom: You are blessed. Be blessed. Be a blessing.

Ending World Poverty and Wage Slavery - and creating an environment to meet our Galactic Neighbours

In today’s age, we have two problems. Maybe more. But basically two.

The first:

We need to understand the difference between a Puzzle and a Mystery. A Puzzle is when you put the 1000 pieces together and there is a missing piece. You know exactly what is missing. A Mystery is where you have all the information, but you don’t know where to look. This is where we are today, and hence why Computer Scientists are now called Data Scientists. We have everything at our fingertips. A device you carry in your hand has all the information that has ever been invented on it; it can take you places; phone anyone in the world; look at colour maps and drawings of anything. And for free! Or it seems free until you are looking for the needle in the haystack. And when you want to find that needle fast, you need to find the person who can find it for or with you and wouldn’t you say that they should be compensated for that gift that they bring you?

Note that I use the word “Compensation” not “payment”. Comp…

Nuclear or Coal Power or The Roof Top Owner Utility?

Preface
My name is David Lipschitz. I am a software developer and a researcher, researching Energy in its widest possible sense, but narrowed to Energy used by the people of South Africa, Namibia and Lesotho. I bring you Powerful Energy Knowledge based on my knowledge, based on Software, Energy and Power. Introduction
This article represents a Balance Sheet, taken on 23rd November 2013, of my knowledge and making recommendations as to how I see rapid sustainable employment in Southern Africa and the world.

The main points in this article are: Scaleability, e.g. building a 3 KW (3,000 Watt; 3 KiloWatt) house (roof top) power station and scaling it to 30 GW, (30,000,000,000 Watt; 30 GigaWatt); 10 million houses * 3 kW = 30 GW."Localisation", i.e. in the narrow definition of "Jobs in Clean Energy" OR the wider definition of "Jobs in the General Economy because of Jobs (Investment) in Clean Energy"? 11 million people need to be employed in South Africa in the next…

Take and Give. Pesach and Redemption.

Dear all

Normally we are told to give and take.

It is interesting because our very first breath after we are born is an out breath, not an in breath.

Although this is counter-intuitive, Kabbalistically we are told that the reason for this is because we are givers before we are takers.

My ex-wfie was a taker. I am a giver. It was a recipe for disaster. When people ask me for marriage advice, I say you must both be takers, like my parents, or both be givers, like my wife, Mirjana, and I. A giver and taker? Difficult. The giver gives until there is nothing left to give, and then the giver gives their soul, and becomes a slave.
Perhaps I should have called this article Take and Take.

This is how my world seems at the moment. My world is the day to day world of life in South Africa.

It seems to me that Colonialism (defined narrowly (locally, micro, in my mind) or broadly (normally, macro, in the world)) involves pushing people down, making them feel insecure, making their self-esteem non-e…
