My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy …philosophically understood, meaning abolition of control … The most improper job of any man … is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

All of us, without being taught, have attained to a belief in some sort of divinity, though it is not easy for all men to know the precise truth about it, nor is it possible for those who do know it to tell it to all men.
~ Julian the Philosopher ~
We are all absolutely free. If everybody could go into dhyana at will, nobody could be controlled — by fear of prison, by fear of whips or electroshock, by fear of death, even. All existing society is based on keeping those fears alive, to control the masses. Ten people who know would be more dangerous than a million armed anarchists.

We live beyond words, as also we live beyond computation and beyond theory.

As soon as men live entirely in accord with the law of love natural to their hearts and now revealed to them, which excludes all resistance by violence, and therefore hold aloof from all participation in violence — as soon as this happens, not only will hundreds be unable to enslave millions, but not even millions will be able to enslave a single individual.
~ Leo Tolstoy ~
I am the dreamer and the doer
I the hearer and the knower

If this be true, then let sword fall free from hand.

And weep until I smile…

There’s something out there and it’s laughing at us.

Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again.
It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order though.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

That power which circumstances placed in my hands, and which is an emanation of divinity, I am conscious of having used to the best of my skill.

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.
He hardly knows which is which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing.
To himself, he always appears to be doing both.

I've never seen anybody really find the answer, but they think they have.
So they stop thinking.
But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom.
The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.

Thanks to all for Wikipedia activity 
I VERY MUCH thank all who have supported me in the recent measures to unblock my Wikipedia account. I also wish to assert that I bear no ill will to those who in good conscience have opposed my presence there or elsewhere, in various ways and for various reasons, believing themselves to be supportive of what they believe to be fair and just aims. I am very pleased to now resume activities at Wikipedia, and simply wish to be a beneficial contributor there. Unfortunately, in some regards, I expect to be a bit busier in my terrestrial localities than I had expected to be for at least a couple weeks and probably a couple months — but I do not expect that to prevent me from being a daily presence on Wikiquote. I am looking forward to a busy year in many regards, and I believe that things are generally proceeding well. Blessings to ALL. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 10:07, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Wikipedia pages 
I am glad to be back to activity there, though I have not done much as yet. I did create 2 links to WQ that I had been aware WP articles were lacking a short while before being unblocked: The All, which had been lacking one for some time, and Clara Oswald, which I had only recently created. Earlier today (at my location), I created the page here for Story here and for the first time in over 2 years could simply link the relevant WP articles to ours. I have been developing my user pages (User:Kalki & User talk:Kalki) there, and believe I am nearly done for a while — and after that I will probably take Ninguable's previous suggestion to reduce the images on this page so as to not inhibit those with slower connections from addressing me here. After that I will probably try to clean up or develop some of my other user pages over the next few weeks, along with casual editing of articles and such, as inspirations impel me.
I believe that many problems of the past and present have been caused by various "failures to communicate" and both reasonable or unreasonable unwillingness to communicate MANY quite relevant matters. As an absurdist I recognize that there are QUITE often MANY diverse causes for this, and believe that these actually are NEVER entirely the blame of any one person or group, and that even perceptions of the proportions of responsibility can vary greatly with how extensively informed one is of various matters and various contexts of many diverse situations. I believe that strong inclinations and attempts to absolutely assign blame and punish errors that can range from mild to severe with needless harshness can quite often make matters far worse — but so can inhibiting honest declarations of opinions and assessments which are often needed for attempting to find corrective paths without ever desiring or nurturing any will to needlessly punish, distress, diminish or constrain others. This is all too OFTEN precisely what occurs in various large groups of people where many have little direct contact or familiarity with others — and the feelings of many natural or acquired biases are often vigorously suppressed and yet smoulder in various ways.
I expect that within a few months, with such information as I intend to provide, here and elsewhere, anyone interested in doing so will have a much more extensive awareness of many of my perspectives upon things, and some of the reasons for these than I have ever yet provided anyone. I do not expect everyone to agree with me on all matters, or even most, and never have — and I doubt that many will understand much I would like to indicate all that well. I do hope that most can and will find more reasons to accept many of the diverse inclinations of each other and ways to harmonize their own inclinations with those of others, without ever demanding or insisting upon absolute compliance and conformity to their will, though I know that there will always be some matters where little or no compromise or agreement will be likely, or even possible. I will probably begin trimming this page within a few hours — or at least within the next day — but now have to begin attending to many other things for at least a few hours. Blessings ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 03:44, 10 April 2013 (UTC) + tweaks P.S.: Did end up doing a bit more here, reducing the size of this page, and might do some more later in the week. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 04:53, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
- I am just back from a relatively brief excursion but might be busy on many other things much of the next few days. I actually expect to be busy every day here for some time to come — but I certainly cannot know in advance how much time I will have to spend here on any particular day — some days it might be just a few minutes, sometimes several hours, and sometimes most of the day, but often with most of my attention devoted to other matters, as various circumstances arise. Some things I had planned to do until relatively recently are not so urgent now, and can safely be neglected or abandoned — and other things which I had long put aside, are becoming more prominent in my attention. I am quite pleased to be quite busy most days, with little opportunity or need for much rest — and am currently looking forward to what I believe will be a very productive and interesting spring and summer, here and elsewhere. Blessings to all. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 22:07, 11 April 2013 (UTC) + tweaks
Busier again… 
I have been much busier than I had anticipated with many things lately, and expect that to remain the case, but expect an especially hectic week for the remainder of this week, and anticipate there might be a few days where I spend no more than a few minutes a day checking in here, as I am doing now. After this week I will probably resume a bit higher level of activity here, but right now I am going to get some rest. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 01:33, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
As is quite normal for me, I did not sleep long. After a few days of activity with very little sleep, I had less than two hours sleep, and have been up over an hour now, doing various things, and with many things yet to do, and hope to catch another hour of sleep sometime before leaving within a few hours (but probably won't). I definitely do not feel I have time to deal with some issues which seem to be developing here, and probably won't for a few days, but so it goes. Other things have a greater significance and priority on my agenda, and I don't plan to do more than check in her occasionally for a few days, so pressing are other matters. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 05:42, 1 May 2013 (UTC) + tweak
Before I go off attending to other matters too extensively to check in here again, and perhaps for the last time before leaving my current location for the day, Happy May Day, to those who celebrate the day in various ways. And NOW off to work at a few other things.... So it goes... ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 05:55, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
- Until a couple of days ago, I had intended to become much more active here for at least a couple of weeks (beginning yesterday), but several situations have changed drastically, and as of present, I expect to have MUCH less time for internet activities for at least a couple of weeks, and perhaps shall only be checking in here most days a few minutes a day. I might occasionally have more than an hour to spend working here, but am not counting on it, and I expect to only spend a very little time here most days, for at least a few days more, and quite possibly a few weeks more. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 05:04, 15 May 2013 (UTC) + tweaks

Much virtue in IF — and I speak obscurely and humorously here, in ways I do not expect to be immediately or thoroughly understood (as I often do, without so much of an overt clue of that fact as I here provide) — but I thank you for your note of appreciation. I am sure there are some who would disagree, and I believe that I have intense good will towards even most of these, such as yet does not lead me to seek to disguise what disagreements and oppositions I can and MUST have to many of their aims and assumptions by insincere or shallow and false indications of agreement with their errors and acceptance of them as truths, as many of shallow sensibilities and low integrity are prone to demand.
Those of low integrity I do no expect to easily persuade to like me much, nor such attitudes as I generally seek to exhibit and promote, once they have become enamored of paths by which they seek to exalt themselves by seeking to undermine such people as myself, nor am I overly alarmed by their usually quite misguided efforts and aims, save to the extent that they can or do endanger the welfare and opportunities of others far more than myself.
There is much which your praise prompts me to indicate further, in my generally jovial absurdist manner, eager to spark thought and many forms of broad appreciation of Humanity in general, but as I remain in a VERY busy period activity with other things, where I believe I must serve such aims in other ways, I do not expect much opportunity to address any of them extensively for at least several days. I am in a bit of a rush now to do a few things here, and then resume extensive activities elsewhere. Blessings ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 09:29, 8 May 2013 (UTC) + tweaks
