ME + me : Of Bees, of Johnson, of Brain Tapping and more
I do hope my gentle introduction to that healing and wellness bringing Lying ProcessTM has done some good, and in case it didn't, or in case there is more need for enlightenment, there's more below in Brain tapping for the WHEE minded, while the words above are all quotations by Medical Specialists on the power of WHEEWHEE. (*)
1. The bees knees
I have been doing little the past days other than recuperating from the heat that lasted most of July in Amsterdam and exchanging mails with Xie, who bears a Chinese name, has almond shaped eyes, and is far too clever for her own wellness.
She namely, who has no ME, but has been reading some about and around it, having acquired some interest in my philosophy, has now needed to be picked up twice by her nearest and dearest from under her own computer, where she then is found screaming "Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" (approximately), clutching her tummy, tears streaming from her eyes, while she is completely incapable of coherent speech, not even in Chinese, and is almost impossible to calm down from a state holding the middle between catatonia and hysteria.
How come, you may ask?
Xie's current problems in life are of two kinds, one general and one particular:
First, the general one is that she is very intelligent, which does her popularity, acceptance, and chances no good, not even in China. (For she is honest.) Second, the particular one is that she met - virtually and virtuously, mostly by accident - the WHEE geniuses Dany and Jacqui, of whom more below and in the previous Nederlog.
Since reading about these Western Therapies poor Xie, ordinarily healthy, levelheaded, and somewhat sceptically though sincerely interested in the wayward Western ways, has been laughing herself almost to death, not to the amusement of her family or me.
So there have been problems these last days, and to try to calm her down I have had to find some pretty blunt therapeutical instruments to help move the more intelligent mind to the acceptance of the forces of WHEE and Life Itself.
Here is the first:
and very much else you always wanted to know - if your natural intelligence is high enough, of course - inter alia about carnivorous plants and their falsified pictures.
It is made by a French master of many things, who goes by the name
and who had the bright idea to connect his French text, with many amazing and beautiful pictures of bees and birds and other animals, and with many texts to warm the cockles of an intelligent heart screaming from WHEE-ness, to Google translate, with such charming effects as these (end yoo eff too eemageen zee french prononciation, uff curse):
So there: Gives you a little perspective.
Most images on the site are links (also if they don't look like it) and the more intelligent or faint of heart may not wish to miss this to cutify the softer ventricles of their own breasts:
Of course, it may be all the naturalistic bits are not for thee, but for better or worse they charmed both Xie and me.
Also, the site is larger than would appear, and comes with an excellent list of reference works and instructions for budding naturalists, gardeners, and the curious gifted.
2. Good old Sam Johnson
It so happens that Johnson is a very common name, for which reason it is a popular name for an alias. There also are some Johnsons who are very well worth reading, notably Hillary of that ilk, but the Johnson of Johnsons must be old dr. Samuel Johnson himself, who was as genuine a genius as you might wish to meet, and for that reason has long been popular with me.
I have not been able yet to put Xie on a diet of Sam, but I do regularly regale myself with large doses of his prose and found recently two excellent sites about him.
First for the scholarly
These are excellent pages with lots of information. My reason to settle "scholarly" upon Mr Lynch's pages is not that he wears his scholarship as if it is a fake Rolex, for he does do no such thing at all, but because he really knows a lot about his subject; is a real scholar in the field; and these pages are especially for those who know at least a little Johnson and want more. Mr. Lynch has it, and serves it forth admirably.
Second for everybody (who can think, hoping this leaves more than a few millions, in this day and age):
which is excellent and tells itself about itself
It clearly is a labour of love with many prize finds:
Including my own characteristic (or one of them):
So far, you missed 1800 more quotes, so now you know where you can find them. And if they are not for you, as may well be the case
3. Brain tapping for the WHEE minded
I wrote about WHEEWHEE before, and it seems to have helped many, so I will add a little today, expecting a need to write a special on it, but making no promises.
As I mentioned above, poor Xie, moved by the curiosity of a large intelligence, was floored again by The Power Of WHEEWHEE for she stumbled, without being warned, over the site of the prodigiously learned and gifted:
I copy it precisely as the most prodigiously gifted Ms Footman herself laid out these many diplomas testifying to her rich gifts and great talents, and should warn you that this superiorly gifted lady is not just anybody, but is a counsellors' counsellor and that the Medical Doctors she counseled testified to the already quoted effect - and we are speaking here especiallt of the WHEE-Powered Process that is EFT (*):
Now I did not think that I - being ill - could be morally allowed to omit mentioning these testimonies to Ms Jacquie's excellences on Ms Jacqui's site, indeed the site of a WHEEWHEE gifted most noble and moral healing person, as I could also not forbear to mention this proud testimony of A Healed One, underscoring the above Testimonies by Honest Medical Specialist Experts:
Clearly, this is written by a proud soul in full possession of herself (?), also possessed of the most amazing gifts of self-expression.
As it happens, in case you were puzzled by "tapping": This has been explained in my previous Nederlog, but meanwhile have been perfected to
The above TechniqueTM also builds enormous self-confidence - unless done improperly (it must be warned sincerely!): if so, do sign in for a new course - and it offers relief of all symptoms of all things (or almost all, at least, it having been proved that is almost 100% effective against ALL problems), and most especially in the IQs up to Dutch university-professorships of all kinds.
Speaking myself as a psychologist, I therefore much like to repeat that my most excellent friend the Dutch genius professor Jos van der Meer is, together with his partner and friend professor Gijs Bleijenberg, the absolutely perfect person to introduce The Full Powers of WHEEWHEE and Lying ProcessTM into ALL Dutch hospitals, to bring relief in the wink of an eye or within three days- and for absolutely everyone fit to pay, provided they are possessed of the necessary IQ and EQ (for if not, you will fail through your own excesses, alas).
Much recommended (for the cognitively challenged, to whom it will seem perfection)!
"Thank you so much for tapping with me!"
P.S. Actually I had also the beginning of a section "Philosophizing with the hammer", having to do with my recent meeting with a neurasthenic Nietzschean and great human minds and characters like those of the legal eagles Patricia Carter and Oerganix The Honest One, at present both in powerful positions in or on the ME-F forum, where neurasthenic Nietzscheans are allowed to play Bill Reeves; anti-semitic Dutch neurasthenic biddies are fondly embraced, and The Proud Fightress for her very life The Legal Eagle that calls herself Oerganix wrote:
This is of course why the neurasthenic Nietzschean started his diatribe thus:
and included such fine Nietzschean ideals like
with such firm affirmations of Eric's very own moral and human tastes, shared by everyone until 1800 (Buddha, Confucius, Aristotle, Lucretius, Jesus, Shakespeare, Galileo, Leibniz, Voltaire, Dr. Johnson, in short "Everyone" did, felt, desired and thought as Eric does and would):
Yet Oerganix The Firm Fightress for her own life, from a luxurious villa in Nicaragua, of considerable seniority herself, next to exquisite legal training, can not see anything wrong with Master Eric's prose. Clearly, our legal eagle means that neurasthenia is not a psychological illness, and definitely never heard of it, just like Master Johnson of Nazi-like expressions.
Very probably, to such a legalese mind, whether of The Great and Good Patricia - Owner Of ME-F, in whose House one is Guest, until kicked off for lacking a foreskin or verbally skinning a neurasthenic nazi - or of Oerganix the Nicaraguan ME-Fightress with such loyalties, the holocaust also never happened.
Well... let me make just three points here and now:
Anything else on ME, you may ask?
As a matter of fact, yes - and I mention just two facts worthy of mentioning, and indeed reading:
So it is not true - in case you might have thought so - that nothing useful or interesting happens in ME-land, for it does.
It's just a pity, although human history shows this to be common, that - to repeat two principles I mentioned on July 20 -
Indeed, it seems The Dilbert Principle can be sharpened in various ways:
What can be seen on the ME-forums is best explained by The Peter Principle, that can be supplemented in various ways:
P.P.S. It may be I have to stop Nederlog for a while. The reason is that I am physically not well at all. I don't know yet, but if there is no Nederlog, now you know the reason.
