Since Diaspora apparently will not allow me to comment on this, I'll just re-post and do it.

The article states that "Foul Play is Not Suspect", yea 36 year olds just "die" for no apparent reason, especially those hated by the deep state. The CIA is very capable of making it's assassinations look "natural".

Friendica Traffic Weirdness

I normally see between 4-5 hits/second on my webserver, about half of which is friendica traffic. Today it is 7.5 hits/second and the majority is friendica tag searches. These are coming from addresses all over the place so it would seem to be a botnet of some sort, but the nature of what it is doing does not make sense.

If the intent were to overload my server then I would expect those searches to be full-text searches rather than tag searches because the former are more CPU intensive.

If the intent were to use up my bandwidth, I'd expect a much higher level of attack and targets that return larger bodies of text. As it is these are only consuming less than 5% of my available bandwidth.

The level of traffic is slowly creeping up overtime. Looking up the IP addresses, MOST have no inverse DNS at all, few that do usually come back to private machines or servers in clouds.

I imagine this level of traffic might be an issue for some smaller web servers but if the intent were just to destroy I'd expect traffic at much higher levels and with a much faster ramp-up.

So I'm at a loss as to understand what is going on. Anyone have any ideas?

Traffic is now up to 8.08 hits/second. Oh well, the server has not been seriously stress tested since I hosted Milla Jovavich's website and she came out with a new movie.

Open letter:

Together against state-sponsored hacking

2021-06-02 05:06:53,

erdgeist

In an open letter, an overwhelmingly broad alliance opposes the German government's legislative plans, which would greatly expand the permission to infect computers and devices with state sponsored trojans and at the same time weaken encryption measures

https://www.ccc.de/en/updates/2021/offener-brief-alle-gegen-noch-mehr-staatstrojaner

With the Gesetz zur Anpassung des Verfassungsschutzrechts (Law on the Adaptation of the Protection of the Constitution), all German intelligence services are to be given a right to hack devices at will.

The update to the Bundespolizeigesetz (Federal Police Act) is intended not only to allow the agency to use so-called "state trojans" – a state-sponsored backdoor –, but also to allow it to hack people who have not committed or are suspected of committing a crime.

However, even the excessive extension of trojan horse deployments is not enough: Internet service providers are to be obliged to cooperate in the infection of their customers' devices. Apparently, end-to-end encrypted messengers in particular are to be actively weakened.

"That would deal the death blow to any trust relationship between users and providers," said Linus Neumann, spokesperson for the CCC.

Friendica Retention / Access of Old Messages

I believe I have my Friendica node configured to retain things for a year, yet the longest I've been able to scroll back is 30 days and sometimes as little as four hours.

At first I thought this was a retention issue but now I think it is a retrieval issue because sometimes after only being able to go back a few hours, I am later able to go back days or a few weeks.

If anyone else is experiencing this, could you please add a note to to bug #10382 on the Github friendica issues site:

LED light bulbs don't last long. I converted my kitchen and living room can lights when we remodel 8 years ago. I've replaced those twice already.

I replaced the ceiling lights in my kitchen with LED lights, and they have done a very annoying thing.

Each globe has six 'filaments' in it. Over about 2 or 3 years, every one of them has lost four filaments. The remaining two still light up, dimly. So my choice is to replace them, or muddle along in dim light.

Why care about emotions? Is this not a defense mechanism that prefers unreality to feeling uncomfortable? If we are honest, the entire spectrum of feeling is there, and we lack the perspicuity to brighten selectively. And if we are using the meditative space between impulse and reaction, then why do we claim emotions as somehow related to ourselves, as if we caused them and not the subject's personal matrix? Instead we can play the game, feel and fight, not like ourselves, but as the emotions seeking release for causes beyond our control and responsibility: there's laughter at the end of this, or at least a great big sigh with a slight smile. But it does not come if we associate ourselves with the game, try and find the winning strategy, dig deep into a war with no winning sides. The feelings have their own path, and it is important to realize and trust each other. For example, if I feel petty using diaspora, it's because of the medium, not the people...but to hide this feeling would be to cast shade on the brightening...I feel sorry for maybe hurting your feelings, but glad that I get the chance to say that because I want us to be stronger and treat the feelings like the Kauravas...I don't want to censor myself anymore, and it's not like they are not coming for us. It is a frigid hell where we cannot let ourselves be, and this is where compassion is all the more important, even while acknowledging that it is not "real", I appreciate the unreality of things as I learn to navigate this continuum that unites both and more. Equally important, I want to learn to brighten the pallet of feelings that exist within me based on what our connection is. Surely this is the art of love, impartial and shared towards each human, unique and of variegated depth. I think most lover's quarrels are due to comparing their received love with personal expectations, when actual Love is universal from my subjective point of view. It's like when my mother calls out for me in the store, and says her boyfriend's name, their dog's name, and finally my name. If this happens to you, will you seize yourself with guilt, or forgive instantly as I do. The Love needs to harmonize the world, not create and maintain standards of appreciation. It may need to make the point that it is universal and only for an individual insofar as she can and chooses to resonate with it. Or it's individual delight may want to strengthen the game pieces in a certain area, so that this first concept can shine more brightly elsewhere. Eitherway, it feels much more harmonic talking with you now than before...I don't need to comment or like anything else.
Corrections: treat emotions like Kauravas. There is also a typo, but I think it was unconsciously intentional.

Emotions (in-movers) seem more like the EM-waves we were talking about, capable of moving at the frequency of the brain's setting they act and form upon. Feelings, coming from the sense of touch, get more at the oneness. Where eye-contact to physical proximity validate the connection that is universal. There's a lot of these contrasts, it seems...sympathy and empathy pop into mind.

Regarding pettyness: I used to walk to the public squares and parks in nyc to meet people and smoke, often in that order. Diaspora feels like this. There are magical experiences to be had: you'll be talking to a stunning hippie clade with instruments and someone will come drunk and tap your circle's nearest on the head "Duck!" then walking around "duck duck...goose!" We got a game of 30 random people going. Lot's of stuff happened like that, and not all active. Sometimes it would be art brought over, sometimes a poet would sling their slang. It was bohemian and wonderful because you never knew what would happen and you could leave anytime. I made a lot of art, and wrote a lot more.

But I left that all behind for the 18+ cheap access of Berlin to relieve myself of morality, and went to the author of that book I sent you to restore myself in ethics. Returning each time to the city was like wearing teenage clothes...they still fit, and smelled just like the times themselves, but the memories hurt so much because while you could put them on again, people were always less impressed the older you got. I had to become deeper in Berlin where the bar is lower (and the financial sector is less omnipresent), where my ideas got really radical and I needed an injection of classical German philosophy a la Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Kant. Eventually, even clubbing in Berlin got uninspiring, because I realized even though I was resonating the potentials available, the people were abiding in them not to improve, but to remain comfortable within the system they knew oppressed them. Here the medium oppresses us, whether we know it, or not, and a full-scale effort to change has to come in a form, one of which I write, alone if I have to. Then I will be the city (intended far away from the action and the spotlight) and no one has to feel petty.

Patanjali has a wonderful passage about the locality of feelings, in which he compares the (slightly) liberated self to a crystal which takes on the color of its light.

क्षीणवृत्तेरभिजातस्येव मणेर्ग्रहीतृग्रहणग्राह्येषु तत्स्थतदञ्जनता समापत्तिः॥४१॥
Kṣīṇavṛtterabhijātasyeva maṇergrahītṛgrahaṇagrāhyeṣu tatsthatadañjanatā samāpattiḥ||41||

When a weakened (kṣīṇa) fluctuation of mind (vṛtteḥ) (finally) arises consequently --that is, when the mental fluctuation is lastly weakened and the mind attains stability-- (abhijātasya), (this fluctuation behaves) like (iva) a (transparent) gem (maṇeḥ) in respect of the knower (grahītṛ), the instrument of knowledge (grahaṇa) and the knowables --grāhya-- (grāhyeṣu) --which are all objects of mental concentration--. (This, as it were,) act of assuming the color --nature-- of any near reality (tad-stha-tad-añjanatā) (by that gem-like weakened fluctuation of mind, is known as) Samāpatti or Engrossment (samāpattiḥ)||41||

Hence the yogi cannot flee from the world, otherwise when it comes to him he will be unprepared. Moreover, he has to continually weaken his reactivity in the presence of the colors, beautiful as they are. There is nothing more fortunate than an apsara sent to disturb a yogi who is too powerful. He is either so accomplished as to deserve divine placement, or ready for the next stage (because the great beauty is within him undisturbed by desires, of which she will have plenty). Or both.

@Nanook How can we have the same experience? To say so implies that even the lived moment is translatable to another. What would that mean, that you see through my eyes, but continue to judge with your own personality? Then either we are already (1) one and the same, or (2) the human experience is as interchangable as unearned sorrow.

If the former, then the same experience is not a "purely internal subjective matter", but allows for a superposition of selves in a space that defies the logic of interior/exterior. Even there, now there are 2 judges in one chair, but why does their addition create more "reality". Is it because they are somehow more qualified, that makes me salivate with illusion, and I have nothing to eat. In any case, the routes to qualia are motion or stillness. My bet is the latter, that is, what stops a heart or joins minds more, the thrill of the chase or the sudden silence before letting loose the arrow? The one loses the self to the same external moment, the other to the same (repeated) internal one, but then if "internal" sharing is allowed, why not zoom the camera up and see both One-selves together? Taken to its extreme, the entire universe is in view, but then the experience is still limited by a time delay, and so while the Two made One can revel in their cosmic perspective, it is theirs allone, and therefore still not shared in any real sense. (2), and human experience is a matrix construct, then it is as unreal as any mental simulation.

Or do you mean "have an experience" like having a baby means that an experience is created external to us which we share. Is watching TV comparable? I suppose making music and sharing a beat would be comparable. What about commenting on the same thread? Diaspora makes me feel indulgent and petty, but that's not to say other emotions are not there (they are just too much to comment without some cats hissing). What red looks like? No, I don't know what it looks like, because my appreciation is too deep for such a statement. Please show me alternatives:

Necessary explication: I am extremely indulgent, so that's not a bad word in my book. What is, relative to this Kali Yug, is "reaction". When from indulgence or the bliss at this blessing of life I forget the symbols of my life: the eggs of my children, the notebooks of my heart, the life/death stone of my teacher.

Why did red make me think of Saturn? He is strong in my chart, and in retrograde motion. Indeed my chart says I am born to suffer, and to do that verily means life itself. My joy is stronger than my woe, because I wish upon myself the former, taking ever more to see a world that can live free of it, and effervesce the former whenever and wherever the pressure of the world causes it to burst forth. Reaction is to eat my babies, both metaphorically as seeds of relationships in friends, causing suffering so they might grow; and to destroy them, so that I can get some peace or work done. But this would be Saturn moving forward, dealing with Karma as its ruler, not its willing basis. My sun's Nakshara is Ashlesha, the feminine entwiner ruled by Vishnu. My moon (mind) is Shatabhisha, the hundred healers ruled by Saturn with the presiding deity warlike Durga. Both are demonic, but I take that as a challenge to learn about the world we living: for my goals are as idealistic as they come.

The most karmic planets, and only them, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu within my chart are all in retrograde. The last two are the head and the body separated for drinking the elixir of immortality. Friends of Saturn, who with my Aquarius moon are in the 12th house symbolizing an end and completion, the fulfillment of any separated whole. Interestingly, my ascendent is Pisces, the last sign in the first house.

Cursed to incarnate 10 times not by choice, Visnu first became a fish, and in many ways the trials of his journey reflect that of Rahu and Ketu to becomes one again. Indeed, it was the only female avatar of Lord Vishnu, Mohini, who severed Rahuketu's head from his body. They remind me of war crimes and the burnt seeds of hatred left in their wake: if we cannot learn to forgive each other in the wake of atrocious acts, instead of endlessly self-justifying and propagating karma, then suffering will be the only lot in life and Buddha the only teacher we can hope for. As you know, I preach Impartial Love. This does not deny my heart, but it is a long and lonely game. It would be worse without a practice of connection to divinity.

Rahu and Ketu hate the sun and the moon, who are so full, whereas they are separate. Ashlesha is a moon sign. I take the sun in this star as representing the conjoining of opposites. For this reason Rahu's head might smile upon me as long as I do my duty, and the Ketu's body might keep its sharp weapons held back. Indeed, my moon's sign Aquarius is ruled by their friend Saturn, and both in the 12th house might represent an end to their suffering. It was not long ago in Berlin when I dreamed of making a ring around the earth using the space trash as gravitational ballast.

Both my sun and moon too have circles as their symbols. Cursed Visnu is often separate from Lakshmi's embrace. However it was through His suffering that we can today hear the stories of Ram, Krishna, and arguably Buddha. In any case, it is Divine Sport and not always up to God that he incarnates. Therefore, just like man, it is all the more important to get it right as this one life will not come again, and to prove yourself as worthy of the title given. Not that "god" is something I would choose for myself: give me a teapot, an herb garden, a library, and mountains: the giver will sort out our rest. And if I am to be adorned, then you will see me as she would.
All I really need is a song in my heart. Food in my belly and love in my family.

Still I walk the path of Krishna, who left his physical home in Radha for the fulfillment of duty and taught the ultimate yoga of self-sacrifice for the greater good. With Saturn pushing me backwards, offering me every opportunity to slip, react, or in bliss forget myself, I have to learn to winnow my thoughts with discrimination--saving as many seeds as possible before I plant them as words; and to interact with impunity according to the moment, that is not to react because of my desire to see/prevent a prophecy. Most importantly, I must love honestly and true to myself. There is only one other person who needs to recognize the divinity within me.
