Long ago when dinosaurs roamed the Earth I majored in sociology ——————–Well maybe not that long ago?!
When I studied sociology the stereotype of a social psychopath (sociopath) was a “used car salesman.”
Now it seems that this applies to just about everyone that works for multi nationals.
What puzzles me is these people are just wage earner: Why tell lies on behalf of the large conglomerates?
Sociology also stipulates that our culture operates on the assumption that people are honest?
I haven’t had internet since 10am on 11th April. I am using the library computer.
Although not having internet is annoying, what is more annoying is the way i have been treated.
It’s a longish story —- try to cut it short.
Telstra have a stall at our local shops to promote the NBN
On the 14th March the Telstra staff at this stall helped me with a mobile phone and I bought her a box of chocolates to show appreciation.
A couple of days later I spoke with her about the NBN which she insisted I needed NOW! —– lie — But I still filled out the paperwork! I told her that my internet wasn’t with Telstra. She said “We are only changing the phone.” I queried this and she would not make eye contact!
I phoned my internet service provider.and was told you ofcourse have to have both phone and internet on NBN.
I phoned Telstra to cancel the change over to NBN and they said that it would take 48 hours to cancel But that it had been done! —–LIE
At 10am on 11th April my internet went out without warning.
When I phoned iinet support I was spoken to as if i were an intellectually disabled, naughty child.
Because of this I went to the Telstra person at our shops and told her that I had cancelled the NBN but would now like my internet with them. She said she had put me on a plan for $70 per month.
On the 12th April I used the library computer and saw an email saying that a Telstra tech was coming on the 20th to change me to NBN. I thought that was quick so phoned telstra and was assured my internet would be connected —–lie
Then it was Easter— I used library computer again on 18th April and reread the email from Telstra —- then phoned them again. Was assured everything would be OK. And that Telstra had already changed me to NBN on the 11th April. I said “So that is why my internet isn’t working?” He said “Yes”.
On the 20th the tech said he was only here to change my phone! I phoned telstra and the first person was rude and abrupt and said that i was only down for a phone. I phoned back and the second person said that she would help and call me back on Friday——lie!
So I still don’t have internet nor know what is happening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The day before my internet went off i published an Ebook to Amazon Kindle, entitled:
A Short Story About Healing The Blue Planet
I started this on 12th January this year.
I wrote it for myself :
And as sympathetic magic.
Following is a few lines from the beginning of the story:
Somewhere in nowhere:
Outside of our known universe: between other universes: and outside of time:
White swirls of light were communicating telepathically:
One of these swirls of light whom chose to be called Arawn, appeared to b e pulling matter from nothing:
“He” sends the following concept to another swirl of light.
“You have a problem with the universe that I have created, Kunapipi? It is very popular.”
(Difficult to give an analogy here: But if you are aware of the “holodeck” concept in “Star Trek” consider that Arawn is an engineer/technician creating an holodeck program: including the set and the characters!)
‘You know as well as I that everything that exists has consciousness and you have caused unbelievable trauma and horror for those that exist in this reality. Particularly on a planet in the Milky Way galaxy called Earth.’
“I didn’t create any horror and trauma!
Others created the horrors and trauma and it is just one small planet in the corner of one of the many galaxies.”
‘Everything that exists has consciousness and matters!’
“You are correct. I created this ;universe so I am responsible for how it has evolved.”
‘You have never been an actual part of one of your holodeck creations,’ says Kunapipi.
If Arawn had human features you would notice a scowl:
“I do not give up my omniscience.”
End of example
(After it was published i noticed two errors that hadn’t been found despite “proof” reading several times)
As i said i wrote the book for me and realize that it wont appeal to many people.
But i would so love for our planet to be healed:
Even if it is only fiction:
Well! as i said it is “sympathetic magic.”
