Fancy 403: Ban them All!

Lot's of tech savvy computer users these days have figured out how to set up a home server to act as a file server, a streaming media server, a legitimate web-site server, a proxy server, and any number of other case sues. Surely, having access to your home computer, akin to your own personal "cloud", while away from home is not only a luxury, but in the professional or academic world, this can be a ral life saver.

But, along side that convenience, the problem of security arises when we connect our home computers to the internet and register a domain to our dynamic IP address. Suddenly, there are potential prying eyes that we may not want paying attention to us. There are, of course, several ways to mitigate this problem, here is one more...

Learning in Verses, an Exercise

Be vulnerable

Struggle against the blindness

Oh, human being

 

Dreams, flesh, and delight

Hypnotic fog of grasping

For some secure ground

 

Objects of our ire

Gain solidification

Fed by our hot gaze

 

Objects of desire

Wisp away in the wind, while

we chase happiness

 

Just so, out of sync

Disconnected from true sight

Wrestling shadows

A Tally of Banannas

Monkey BuddhaOn my mind as of late has been the realization that we are all merely hairless apes that found a  way off of the African savannas. Listen to the crowd roaring in an appreciative cacophony, "SCIENCE!" they cry, and, "EVOLUTION!" Huzzah, I add.

As a subtle result of this, I have been inadvertently thinking, among other things, "Mere humans, you are nothing more than arrogant apes, following hairless ape patterns, principles, perversions and instincts, and yet you do think so highly of yourself. You even think that a human-like PERSON created the entire universe, and that you are the center of it. That is very ape like, very DUMB and self centerd. Grow up, see past your nose." Not about a rejecting God here, just that particular idea. I personally think that God, or the Ultimate Transcendental Cosmic Intelligent Beingness is beyond human form, beyond binary sexual identification, beyond all that jazz. I also happen to find deep inspiration in the concept that so are we, deep in the core of our being, beyond the human form that is constantly changing, constantly withering away, constantly in need of maintenance. It's all relative, right? We just get to make awesome stuff with all of this stuff while we're here... and we're apparently here, so... So anyway, I had it wrong. It isn't just so that the mere human is in need of being humbled, and reminded of the inner ape within all of us in the light of our huge hubris, not just so. Actually, it's quite just so that we should consider considering the ape with a much higher regard.
