THE FORCES THAT SHAPE OUR LIVES

IN 1949 A WHITE MAN RAPED MY 14 YR OLD MOTHER. I WAS TAKEN & SENT TO BOMADERRY. THERE I WAS IMBUED WITH A STRICT CODE OF HONESTY SELF DISCIPLINE & RESPECT. LIES, DISRESPECT, DISOBEDIENCE, SHIRKING OF RESPONSIBILITIES DIDN'T EXIST.

AT 6 YRS ADOPTION ERASED MY IDENTITY. A NEW NAME & RELIGION SPLIT MY SOUL, FORCING ME TO USE MY RIGHT HAND. "DUALITY" IRREVOCABLY CHANGED MY LIFE, REDUCED ME TO A MONKEY ONLY FIT FOR DOMESTIC SERVICE. ABUSE & LIES OVERTHREW MY MORAL TRAINING, OUTRAGED MY HONESTY & TURNED MY WORLD UPSIDE DOWN AS PREJUDICE & ABUSE LIMITED ME TO MY LEFT FOOT/LEFT BRAIN. THEIR NAME & PERSONA (COMEDY/TRAGEDY MASK) WAS A NEMESIS TAKING ROOT IN MY INFANTILE MIND & FERTILE IMAGINATION. WITHIN 6 YEARS, IT "POSSESSED" ME & STOLE MY LIFE. AT 7, I HELPED THEM CLEAN THE C'WEALTH BANK. AT 8, AFTER MY WORK WAS DONE, BOREDOM DROVE ME TO LEARN TO READ TIME MAGAZINE IN THE STAFF ROOM. AT 9, I WAS READING THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, READERS' DIGEST, ETC. AT 10, THE NUNS AT ST. MICHAEL'S TOLD MIN TO LET ME GO TO ART CLASSES.

IN 1987, COLLATERAL DAMAGE CAUSED A MID-LIFE CRISIS. IN 2005, I WALKED AWAY FROM ALL THE PARENTIS & RETURNED TO WHAT I LEARNT AT BOMADERRY. IN 2014, I DOWNLOADED FREE E-BOOKS FROM INTERNET ARCHIVES, EG: THE EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD/G. MASSEY; AN AUSTRALIAN GRAMMAR/L.E. THRELKELD; MYTHOLOGY OF ALL RACES SEMITIC/STEPHEN LANGDON; 21 VOL ASSYRIAN DICTIONARY FROM CHICAGO'S ORIENTAL INSTITUTE & BOUGHT BILL MANLEY'S EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHS FOR COMPLETE BEGINNERS, "OPENING MY EYES" TO OUR WORDS IN SUMERIAN, OLD BABYLONIAN & OLD AKKADIAN, THE OLDEST KNOWN DEAD LANGUAGE & SACRED & LEARNED LANGUAGE OF RELIGION & LAW. "THE SACRED MAGIC OF ABRAMELIN THE MAGE" IS THE MOST EVIL BOOK IN THE WORLD; A JEWISH VERSION OF THE TEXTS OF EGYPT'S MAGE, ABRAHAM.

THE PATRIARCH ABRAM WAS AN AMORITE OF UR BABYLON, IN THE PERSIAN GULF, TENS OF 1,000'S OF YEARS BEFORE THE MUSLIMS & JEWS WROTE "HISTORY". OUR CULTURE GOES ALL THE WAY BACK TO A TIME "WHEN WE WERE ANIMALS"; ANTHROPOID APES, BABOONS & MONKEYS. SUN-SHINE COAST CLANS RAGED & CURSED THE DEAD & THEIR NAMES EACH DAY AT DAWN & SUNSET WITH "THE CRY OF THE DEAD FOR ½ AN HOUR, BECAUSE OF THE HARM THEY DID TO THE LIVING. THIS CUSTOM WAS RECORDED IN EGYPTIAN TEXTS & TOMBS OF THEIR ANCESTORS, VERIFIED IN TOM PETRIE'S REMINISCENCES OF EARLY QUEENSLAND (DATING FROM 1837). THE ABORIGINAL MURRIS LOVED TOM & TREATED HIM LIKE A PRINCE, AS WE LOVED UNCLE TOM KINGSMILL AT BOMADERRY.

MOTHER EARTH IS OUR LIVING CATHEDRAL, HER SUFFERING, SORROW & POWER IS GREATER THAN ANYONE'S, REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE BY THE ARROGANT. THE LAWS OF OUR CREATOR BEINGS WERE PRESERVED ORALLY IN THE DREAMING & BASIS OF OUR SOCIETY, IE: SOCIAL CONTROL; LAND MANAGEMENT; TERRITORIAL RIGHTS, DIVISION OF LABOUR, HUNTING & GATHERING & KINSHIP LAWS (MOIETIES OR "SKIN" GROUPS/CLAN BLOOD LINES) TO AVOID INBREEDING. THEY FORBADE CREATION OF IMAGES OF THEM IN HUMAN OR TOTEMIC FORM, GAVE US SACRED SYMBOLS TO REPRESENT THEM IN SACRED ART & BADE US TO PRESERVE THEIR CREATION. AFTER COMPLETION OF CREATION, THEY SANK INTO THE EARTH & DIED AS SPIRITS OF EARTH, ITS CREATURES (TOTEMS), TUTELARY GUARDIANS & GENII LOCI.

LIFE & PAINTING MADE ME SEE THAT I CAN'T CHANGE THE PAST. DOT PAINTING OPENED THE GATES TO ETERNITY & EA, MY MULTI-DIMENSIONAL SOUL OF LIFE, "THE SOLVER OF SECRETS" WHO ENFORCED MENTAL SILENCE & TRAINED ME TO FOCUS MY ATTENTION ON HIS ABDOMINAL BRAIN & "CPU" (CHTHONIC POWERS OF RACE MEMORY) THAT MOVED ME TO "MOVE MOUNTAINS" OF RUBBISH & FILTH DUMPED ON ME BY CHURCH, STATE & PARENTS. HE SPLIT HIMSELF IN ½ & BECAME A "FEATHER FOOT", A MAN OF HIGH DEGREE TO RE-TRAIN, DISCIPLINE & PUNISH ME WHEN I ERRED. HE SLEW THE TWIN DRAGONS NIN GIZZIDA, FED OFF HIS GIZZARDS TO RESTORE HIS SOUL, TORE OUT HIS TONGUE & "STOLE" BACK HIS COSMIC FIRE TO REANIMATE HIMSELF AS THE GREAT "WEDGE"-TAILED EAGLE-HAWK & GAVE "FIRE" TO ALL HIS LITTLE ANIMAL ZU FORMS (BRAIN CELLS) "KEPT IN THE DARK" BY GOD.
