The Name

Formerly, I was know by "Mortose", meaning "death". I now refer to myself as "Mortox", meaning "toxic death".

My name change is a result of being labeled as toxic, a term which troubled me for a number of years. However, as my inspiration Darth Bane, I have chosen to own what was used to dehumanize me and which once caused me to hate myself.

Now, I am proud of myself, a pride which will grow as I continue my greatest work... me.

Christian Foot Washing


After reading a news story regarding clergy members washing the feet of DACA recipients, I decided to learn more about the custom. 

http://www.beliefnet.com/faiths/christianity/articles/the-real-meaning-of-foot-washing-for-christians.aspx

While I find this ritual interesting, I do not understand why clergy would engage in this sort of thing with undocumented persons.

Given the DACA factor, it is clear their politics and religious ideologies have become indistinguishable.

The real question is why they remain sheltered from taxation after such political theatrics.

My thoughts as well.  Politics are poison for the mind and soul.

Indeed, tax the churches like any other business.

The reason why they do not is because of the difficulty in actually getting a church to report its income.  Everything they bring in is donation.

So to do this would open up the next 501's in line... which is their personal cash cows.

Tethered


I live in this reality and in this body. While dreams can contain revelation, it is important that I not dwell on dreams. 

David, for your teaching regarding travel, I thank you. However, I have decided this practice is not a good investment of time for me. I need to focus on things I have neglected and facing certain fears.

Film


I watched this film earlier and although I found the acting and special effects to be awful, I did not expect otherwise.




The following link is to a piece of music from the film, which is the second thing which made watching this worth my time.

The Universe Within


Human bodies are each a universe full tiny creatures existing together, waging little battles and fighting invading forces in great body wars. Then there are those which clean up the aftermath; they are the custodians, the microscopic janitors which know every part of us more intimately than anyone we might know.
