Right. And the millions of people across the Horn of Africa that are wishing for food and water?
We are co-creators. To a certain extent. But recognizing reality is integral to co-creating. If you live in a make-believe fantasy world, then your co-creating will be as effective as that of a nutjob in a straight-jacket.
The most important aspect of co-creating is not wishing, it is acting. Action is how one creates. Studying the ways in which our reality behaves is a most appropriate action. How anyone could argue against that is beyond me.
Engaging in scientific methodology isn't evil. Encouraging ignorance and inaction is.edit on 23-8-2011 by thinkingthing because: (no reason given)

I agree with what you said, just would like to say i'm well aware of my surroundings. I've looked into so many things and I have come away with a good balance that's working for me. These things can consume you and too much of one thing isn't good for you. I probably kicked you low down with a few wordings, it's just I would like you to step away from this stuff for a bit.
Aug 23 - Today the tremor is centered under the southern Vancouver Island coast west of Victoria. It has now left the area directly under the AofA and probably will be out of range for the best studies within a week. Reports from the field crew who were checking on stations over the past two days are that out of over 80 stations only two were down because of battery problems. Good job AofA crews!
Aug 26 - Well this ETS seems to again be acting a bit differently. Tremor continues at a good clip but the tremor front has slowed down considerably and seems stalled under the southern end of Vancouver Island. In the past week rather than moving at the normal rate of about 10 km per day the motion is no more than about 4 km per day. Maybe its hanging around so the AofA can get a good look at it.
Sep 2 - This ETS seems to be the longest lived of any that we have well monitored. It will have lasted 6 weeks tomorrow. But maybe it is about to quit. In the past 24 hours there seem to be decreasing tremor. On the summary spectrograms near the end of August little can be seen on the traditional tremor-sensitive station, HDW (though it is far enough south that moderate level tremor up in BC probably can not be seen. However this ETS has not yet progressed as far north as the past several ones have. To extend to its more usual stopping place there should be another week or so left in the puppy.
Aug 30 - The tremor continues to slog northwestward, but slowly. On Aug 27 it seemed to jump 20 km to the northwest but then has hung in the backwoods just north of the Leech River fault since then. Plans are being made for an assault on the AofA next week to rip them out of the field and send all equipment back to their PASSCAL home. After three years of periodicaly slogging through clear cuts, ranch and forest land to service, repair, replace, repower these stations it will be time for one last big "vacation" trip to the northern Olympic tourist detinations of CL, BS, DR, GC, PA, TB, BH and of course our favorite, LC (particularly LC13).

Sep 6, 2011 - This ETS is over. The last burst of tremor seen at the north end of this ETS in BC occurred on Sep 3. It was followed on Sep 4 by a burst back in the south end of Puget Sound but nothing has been seen since then. Thus we declare the ETS over. It lasted from Jul. 23 until Sep. 4, longer than any previous ETS well recorded and processed by us. Besides starting much earlier than expected it started farther south than most previous ones and didn't proceed quite as far north.
- A team of 8 are currently in the field recovering all of the AofA instruments and the remaining CAFE ones. Between Sep 6 and 8 over 90 seismic stations will be recovered from the field and preparations made to ship them back to the PASSCAL instrument pool. The data collected for this ETS will not be available for analysis for a week or two but should be an interesting set.
