I enjoy watching the television medical drama "House," In one episode, a nun was gravely ill and her fellow sisters were not allowed to visit her. Chase, one of the doctors, was with her when she began to recite her favorite verse of the Bible and Chase chimed in, stating it was a favorite of his as well. The verse? I Peter 1, verse 7. I was curious about the passage so I grabbed a Bible and was astonished that the verse was in its entirety. This became the impetus for this inspirational devotional. Who knows, maybe your family needs annual letters to family and friends to keep up on whatas new!

Sequel to "Graduation Day"; Synopsis of "Grad-Day" is: Counterpoint to "Independence Day". What if aliens don't come to conquer and blow things up, but are peaceful and wise; here to elevate humans? Grad-Day synopsis: Aliens have been secretly supervising humans for a long time. Ancient Vikings in Iceland are about to be swept away in a flood, when they're rescued from certain death by Ixnor, who explains that Ixnor wants to remain hidden from humans, until the right time. Ixnor rescues humans from certain death, only when there's no expectation that all human bodies will be found, after a disaster. Ixnor has been doing this for many years. Ixnor saves otherwise-doomed humans, and puts them "on ice" for later days, post-"Grad-Day". "Grad-Day" is the day that all humans become aware of the Ixnor and other intelligent beings in the galaxy, and the existing political order on Earth is overthrown, to eliminate war, and to put more-ethical humans and human cyborgs into power, replacing those who are simply the most ruthless in amassing political power. WHY has Ixnor been rescuing and then freezing many humans, accumulated over the ages? For use in the future, when humans become part of the process of secretly supervising and elevating other "pre-first-Grad-Day" species! There are an unknown number of "Grad-Days" facing even the more-advanced species, as they attain the "next level", and then the next. The reason WHY, is that in the future, cyborgs will have the ability to near-seamlessly link wetware to hardware, and the Earth's accumulated data will be at the tips of their neurons! What use is pure KNOWLEDGE in this context? Not as much as intuition! When one is secretly supervising a developing intelligent species, one wants to have on hand, those who have "been there, done that"! And so that's why Ixnor has been gathering the "humans on ice"... To be awoken and, in the future, if they consent... To "pay it forward" to the next species that needs secret supervision! Dave blazes the path forward, into allowing those humans who consent, to turn themselves into cyborgs. The in-the-know cyborgs are the ethically advanced ones, who can be trusted with Ixnor's secret. The not-in-the-know ones are NOT trusted with Ixnor's secret. The "new tech" as secretly supplied by Ixnor enables world-wide data gathering on who is, and who is not, ethically advanced. "Quorum sensing" among the in-the-know cyborgs finally allows "Grad-Day" to take place. World peace, finally! The meek inherit the Earth! Next, "Paying it Forward", as follows here... Humans and Ixnors (as supervised by the Myykes, from the next layer up) are the secret "space aliens" who supervise the developing bronze-age pre-Grad-Day "primitives" on the planet DoubleAll. DoubleAll is thus-named for having two entirely unrelated intelligent species, on two supercontinents, under double suns, each enslaving one another, on opposing dual supercontinents, as secretly supervised by two species of space aliens... Thus, "Double All"! The two native species are elephant-sized pilldillows, and humanoid riders. The supervising aliens do their jobs via avatars, which are capable of distant telepathy between each other, and close-range-only telepathy with the native inhabitants. Aliens need to tech-advance the natives. But even more, they need to ethically advance the natives, to shed slavery and too many wars. The alien-driven avatars DO get involved in native wars, yes. Explored here: If you're part of such an effort, do you share some of your super-power secrets with well-trusted natives? WHICH secrets? What's ethical for your use, and what's not? HOW to hide your involvements, from the historical records of the natives? What are your priorities, knowing that you can't fix it all? Slavery, war, sexism, classism, despotism, cannibalism, poverty, disease (parasites), abuse of infants and animals? Pick your priorities, you can't fix them all, right away!

A small refrigerator magnet has adorned our kitchen for more years than I can remember. It bears the image of a dove with the words, Let there be peace, at least between you and me. The three square inches it has displaced is opposite in proportion to its magnitude in the lives of family and friends. It is a mantra, a goal, a challenge. Because for so many, peace does not come easily or naturally! Archeological evidence substantiates human irascibility. Indeed, Homo sapiens were endowed with tendencies toward turbulence. Bones shattered by instruments of humanoids are not uncommon to ancient skeletons. Written documents confirm the same: Cain and Able, David and Goliath, dozens of bloody wars and holocausts are recorded in biblical and pre-biblical documents that manifest mankinds snarling, crotchety predisposition to conflict and violence. Discouraged by that disturbing legacy, we recognize exceptions. Though peace is an intentional accord, it is made easier for some who luckily avoid the ancestral consequence of contentiousness. Through genetic good fortune, they are endowed with intrinsic tranquility and a special quiet devoid of malevolence. Gladly, they accept the gift of unsolicited good genes. Acknowledging a quarrelsome nature, then, we embark on this journey of peace, the road made smoother through relevant prayer, prose and poetry. Each step is an encounter with a peace borne naturally or achieved the hard way. In either case, the following pages are channels of peace . . . at least between you and me. And so we reach out together, striving to influence families and cities, states and nations . . . peacefully. After all, the leaders of mighty and minute countries alike agree that the key to peace between all lands is that it begins within individual hearts, homes and families. For only then can it infect every place on a precious earth we will someday call . . . peaceful. Of all the arboreal wonders on earth, none is more amazingly self-propagating than Ficus Benghalensis, the banyan tree. A massive, improbable sight to behold, the banyan puts down feelers from its branches; the feelers grow into the ground and become roots; and the new roots pump sap up and act as support struts for the tree. In this way, the tree grows outward. Equally as amazing, banyans count their days in hundreds of years as they create the widest natural canopies in the world. A single tree can provide shade for an entire village. It is said that Alexander the Great camped with an army of 7,000 soldiers under the shade of one banyan. In more recent years, an imposing banyan tree has spread its arms and roots over one full acre of land in the city of Fort Myers, Florida. Its notoriety and location are the result of a friendship between two of Americas early business pioneers, men who were close, personal friends. The time was 1925. One of the men visited the county of Andhra Pradesh in India and came upon the largest banyan tree in the world, having since reached 570 years in age and covering the breath of 14 acres with 1,650 roots. At the time of his visit, the entrepreneur had a vested interest in the tree, suspecting it might prove valuable as a source of natural rubber. He brought a seedling back to his friend who had a Winter residence in Fort Myers. The friend was delighted with the gift and planted it on his estate. It grew well and still delights guests. Harvey Firestone was the purveyor of the seedling. His friend, Thomas Edison was the recipient. To this day, seedlings of Edisons great tree are sold at his estate, one of them growing in fine health on this writers property. Similarly, admirers from around the world have procured seedlings and carried them back to faraway lands. Hence, the legacy of the giant tree of India is proliferated by the tree of Thomas Edison, now renowned as the third lar

What do Wikipedia, Zip Car’s business model, Barack Obama's presidential campaign, and a small group of lobster fishermen have in common? They all show the power and promise of human cooperation in transforming our businesses, our government, and our society at large. Because today, when the costs of collaborating are lower than ever before, there are no limits to what we can achieve by working together. For centuries, we as a society have operated according to a very unflattering view of human nature: that, humans are universally and inherently selfish creatures. As a result, our most deeply entrenched social structures – our top-down business models, our punitive legal systems, our market-based approaches to everything from education reform to environmental regulation - have been built on the premise that humans are driven only by self interest, programmed to respond only to the invisible hand of the free markets or the iron fist of a controlling government. In the last decade, however, this fallacy has finally begun to unravel, as hundreds of studies conducted across dozens of cultures have found that most people will act far more cooperatively than previously believed. Here, Harvard University Professor Yochai Benkler draws on cutting-edge findings from neuroscience, economics, sociology, evolutionary biology, political science, and a wealth of real world examples to debunk this long-held myth and reveal how we can harness the power of human cooperation to improve business processes, design smarter technology, reform our economic systems, maximize volunteer contributions to science, reduce crime, improve the efficacy of civic movements, and more. For example, he describes how: • By building on countless voluntary contributions, open-source software communities have developed some of the most important infrastructure on which the World Wide Web runs • Experiments with pay-as-you-wish pricing in the music industry reveal that fans will voluntarily pay far more for their favorite music than economic models would ever predic • Many self-regulating communities, from the lobster fishermen of Maine to farmers in Spain, live within self-regulating system for sharing and allocating communal resources • Despite recent setbacks, Toyota’s collaborative shop-floor, supply chain, and management structure contributed to its meteoric rise above its American counterparts for over a quarter century. • Police precincts across the nation have managed to reduce crime in tough neighborhoods through collaborative, trust-based, community partnerships. A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the dynamics of cooperation in 21st century life, The Penguin and the Leviathan not only challenges so many of the ways in which we live and work, it forces us to rethink our entire view of human nature.
