What are you seeing? Are you seeing what you are ‘seeing’, and is it an accurate appraisal of reality, and what is ‘reality’, anyway? Let us pursue this, shall we?

It is important to understand that material things exist for yus only because of our ability to perceive thad interpret them.

When you look at ‘something’, what are you looking at? This is a better question than the veneer.
To begin with. EYES. Humans have two eyes which produce a retinal image which is inverted. So, to begin with what we see is inverted from the object. This is an interesting phenomenon.

Those images are then sent to the human brain for ‘INTERPRETATION’. Humans have bi-focal vision, so the images are combined and interpreted in a way and at a speed which is beyond the processing power of a CRAY computer.
Then based on what we have been taught, learned – both instinctually and recently, ‘seen’, as a reality of the situation. However, without much study, it can be seen that this interpretation of the reality of the situation will almost inevitably be fraught with errors from many sources and reasons, leading to the inevitable ‘seen’, not being reality, but ‘reality as you see it’.

Other animals have a different vision experience. Some, with two eyes, they get two images, not one, to be interpreted independently. And their eyes can see different directions at the same time.
I am fascinated by spiders, study them, and raise them. What do they see?

Many have six eyes. The front two differ from the back four. The front two are better at seeing than the back four. The back four basically see shadows. The front two give a better interpretation of what is going on. However, as with most animals, they realize the flaws with using this to interpret reality. Spiders have hairs on their backs which work like ‘joy sticks.’ If a fly or other insect flies over them from behind, those hairs will register this from wind, and the spider can jump, turn, and accurately capture their prey, without the use of sight at all.

Many other animals know this as well. Snakes, for example, can see, but they rely more on the infrared sensors in their nose area to know what is going on. If it sensed heat, they will strike, iregardless of what they are seeing. When catching a snake, I strike a lighter at about their length to get them to strike. Then when stretched out, I catch them by the head, hopefully. This has to be done with precision.

Back to human vision. If it is day or night, will it affect that vision? If you are wearing sunglasses will it affect that vision? Does what is going on skew that vision. So, is what you are seeing accurate?

If you cannot even trust what you are seeing, you can forget about what you are being told as an accurate interpretation of reality.

Reality is a personal experience based on many flawed factors.

Reality, as best as humans can discern, was best described by Albert Einstein in his Theory of Relativity. Because the heading contains the word ‘relativity’, should tell you something.

Remember ‘growing up’, which is a whole topic in itself, but schooling began in first grade with learning that one and one is two. Then you advanced to quadratic equasions, then calculus, then differential equations, where you learned that there are more than one answer to a problem. Magical and Mystical studies are similar. One and one is two, but that is the beginning, not the end, and by the way, there is no end.

Our purpose is to advance spiritually. We are spirits in human hostS to learn lessons from the physical world. To understand the physical is the beginning to undrstand the noN-physical world.

KNOW THYSELF, AND THOU SHALT KNOW THE UNIVERSE AND THE GODS

It is all about the adventure!

I don’t write fiction adventure, I live adventure and record what it is like.

I was in the US Navy from 1979 to 1986, and lived in Asia for five years without ever coming back to the United States. My first job in the Navy was Fire Control Ballistic Technician. We are the ones who maintains the fire control systems for ballistic missiles on submarines, which is the computers and related equipment that ensures that hopefully, this missile, which can travel one fourth of the way around the world and release a nuclear bomb, gets close to what it is supposed to obliterate.

During Submarine School, we are taught about being under water and about compression and decompression. This is because the dives don’t always equal the surfaces, most unfortunately. To pass Submarine School, we have to free ascend from a depth of 150 feet under water. This is to show us that if a submarine is only a couple of hundred feet down, you can make it to the surface. During this training, both of my ear drums were ruptured. This nearly kicked me out of the Navy, and did kick me out of the submarine force.

My next job was maintaining computers, radars, and radios on the aircraft carrier USS Midway. This was the same aircraft carrier in the battle of Midway Island, in ’42 I think.
My best experience was driving this thing. One night, I relieved the helm to take her for a spin. It was a perfectly calm night, and the water was totally calm. On radar screens on my left and right I could see Vietnam. In front of me was 500 feet of aircraft carrier with about 40 fighter jets tied to the deck. Below me was a 60,000 ton aircraft carrier, 5,000 men sleeping or working, and enough ordinance to blow Asia off of the map.

So here I am with my hands on this huge wooden wheel. In front of this wheel is a very large compass. You are told what heading to take, and you steer this monster where you are told to take it.

I totally loved this. I am driving something that could take out countries. “Ok, mother fuckers, fuck with me now!”

On the wheel were claw marks. I could see and feel the ghosts who had once stood in human life where I was standing and watch Japanese Zeros coming at them though the windows, sweating that they would not crash into the room they were standing in.

So on my drivers record, I have car, truck, motor cycle, submarine, and aircraft carrier.

In high school I rode a bull in two rodeos. I believe in doing anything twice, because you may have missed something the first time. In two times I was convinced that they were totally out of their minds and never did it again. It cost me a tooth both times.

After the Navy, I repaired two way radios for Motorola. Businesses, fire departments, ambulances, and police vehicles all had them. While doing this I completed a degree in Computer Science at Tarrant County College, with a lot of business and accounting. The next five years I worked as a computer programmer and book keeper. I decided that this was not my calling. Computers don’t hug you or kiss you. They only piss you off.

When I wrote the novel If You’re Scared of Me Now, Wait Till I’m Dead , I lived the life of Ann, a strong and vengeful woman. I had to see what it was like to record the details.

The book that I am currently finishing, A Transgender Autobiography, I get to express the real me. I have always been transgender, but have not flaunted it with all crowds. While working on this book, I let it all hang out to better have the words and passion to detail what this wonderful lifestyle entails.

My friends, family, and acquaintances are amazed and embarrassed by the adventures that I live, but what is that to me? It is my life, and I am going to life it to the fullest until the wheels fall off.

In my next book, Dream Weavers, which I am still fleshing out, I will live my life as one of them.

Misty Crafton 2:39am May 14
The Cat as a Soothsayer

Cats can forecast the weather: they predict the wind by clawing at carpets and curtains; rain is highly likely when a cat busily washes its ears.
In mythology, the cat was believed to have great influence on the weather. Witches who rode on storms took the form of cats. The dog, an attendant of the storm king Odin, was a symbol of wind. Cats came to symbolize down-pouring rain, and dogs to symbolize strong gusts of wind. This may be where the phrase “it’s raining cats and dogs” originated (see also “Miscellaneous” section below).
Some people believed that if a cat washes its face and paws in the parlor, company’s coming.
If a cat continually looks out a window on any day, rain is on the way.
A black cat seen from behind fortells a bad omen.
A stray tortoise shell cat fortells bad omen

Some cats can predict earthquakes (actually, there is some truth in this “folklore”).
When a girl living in the Ozark Mountains received a proposal of marriage and was uncertain whether to accept, she folded and placed 3 hairs from a cat’s tail into a paper under her doorstep. The next morning, she would unfold the paper to see if the hairs had formed themselves into a Y or N before answering her suitor.
Sailors used cats to predict the voyages they were about to embark upon. Loudly mewing cats meant that it would be a difficult voyage. A playful cat meant that it would be a voyage with good and gusty winds.
Some people believe that cats are able to see the human aura, the energy field that surrounds each of us.
If early American cats sat with their backs to the fire, the owners knew it foretold a cold snap.
A cat sleeping with all four paws tucked under means bad weather is coming.
Some people believe that cats may be able to see the spectre of death.
If a cat washes behind its ears, it will rain (no doubt this superstition began in some very rainy country!)
A cat sneezing once means there will be rain.
If a cat sneezes three times, the family will catch a cold

A sneezing cat is a sign of future wealth.
A cat sneezing is a good omen for everyone who hears it. – Italian superstition
Early Americans believed if a cat washes her face in front of several people, the first person she looks at will be the first to get married.
If there is a cat washing on the doorstep, the clergy will visit – American folklore
When the pupil of a cat’s eye broadens, there will be rain. – Welsh superstition

If you find a white hair on a black cat, you will have good luck.
One Roman dream interpretation was that dreaming of being badly scratched by a cat foretold sickness and trouble.
French peasants thought that black cats could find buried treasure, if they followed a specific ritual: find an intersection where 5 roads connected, then turn the cat loose and follow him.
A strange black cat on your porch brings prosperity. – Scottish superstition

Tortoiseshell cats were believed to be able to see into the future and could give the gift to a lucky child in the household.
Sailors believed that if a cat licked its fur against the grain it meant a hailstorm was coming; if it sneezed, rain was on the way; and if it was frisky, the wind would soon blow.
When the pupil of a cat’s eye broadens, there will be rain. – Welsh supersition
A bride will have a happy married life if a black cat sneezes near her on her wedding day.

Sacred cats kept in a sanctuary in ancient Egypt were carefully tended by priests who watched them day and night. The priests interpreted the cat’s movements – twitch of a whisker, yawn, or stretch – into a prediction of an event that would happen in the future.

The Pennsylvania Dutch place a cat in an empty cradle of a newlywed couple. The cat was supposed to grant their wish for children.
In Scandinavia, the cat stood for fertility.
It was a popular belief that cats could start storms through magic stored in their tails – so sailors always made sure that they were well-fed and contented.
When you see a one-eyed cat, spit on your thumb, stamp it in the palm of your hand, and make a wish. The wish will come true. – American superstition
A black cat crossing one’s path by moonlight means death in an epidemic. – Irish superstition

The Hindu believed the cat was the symbol for childbirth.
King Charles I of England owned a black cat, whom he valued very much. He treasured the cat so much that he had his guards watch over it 24 hours a day. As luck would have it, the day after the cat died from an illness, the king was arrested.

Norse legend tells of Freya, goddess of love and fertility, whose chariot was pulled by two black cats. Some versions of the tale claim they became swift black horses, possessed by the Devil. After serving Freya for 7 years, the cats were rewarded by being turned into witches, disguised as black cats.
Traits associated with cats include cleverness, unpredictability, healing and witchcraft, since in ancient times it was believed that witches took the form of their cats at night.
Folklore has it that if a witch becomes human, her black cat will no longer reside in her house.
It was largely in the Middle Ages that the black cat became affiliated with evil. Because cats are nocturnal and roam at night, they were believed to be supernatural servants of witches, or even witches themselves. Partly because of the cat’s sleek movements and eyes that ‘glow’ at night, they became the embodiment of darkness, mystery, and evil, possessing frightening powers. If a black cat walked into the room of an ill person, and the person later died, it was blamed on the cat’s supernatural powers. If a black cat crossed a person’s path without harming them, this indicated that the person was then protected by the devil. Often times, a cat would find shelter with older women who were living in solitude. The cat became a source of comfort and companionship, and the old woman would curse anyone who mistreated it. If one of these tormentors became ill, the witch and her familiar were blamed.
A kitten born in May will be a witches cat.
Some believe black cats are witches in disguise.
Others believe black cats are witches familiars (beings that aid witches in performing their craft).
