Zero Population Growth

Zero population

Definition:

“Zero population growth, sometimes abbreviated ZPG (also called the replacement level of fertility), is a condition of demographic balance where the number of people in a specified population neither grows nor declines, considered as a social aim by some.”

When I mention zero population growth most people go into horror?

And some tell me that babies are left to die in China: Babies should not be left to die!    This isn’t what zero population is about.

Seriously it doesn’t mean one cannot have children!

But limiting couples to one child temporarily would certainly help reduce the population.

And give the planet a chance to heal.

I joined Greenpeace in the late 70’s

We were considered a dangerous radical group back then.

The founders of Greenpeace, believed a few individuals could make a difference.

But they also thought that we humans had already damaged the planet beyond repair.

Nuclear waste being a contributing factor.

Unfortunately, multinationals rule the world and all the environmental groups and animal liberation have become impotent bureaucracies that people now join because it is trendy!

WASPS (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants) label cultures that live in harmony with the environment “primitive”.

Most people in our culture considered themselves superior to other life forms?

How intelligent are we when  our cultural goal is to accumulate money.

One cannot eat or drink money. While we still have paper money we could burn it to provide heat?

To fit into our culture all that is necessary is to be a mindless automaton.

To be successful one must be a sociopath.

(This is intended “tongue in cheek”. I don’t really believe all successful people are sociopaths)

The sociopaths and narcissists who don’t care about other life forms or the planet should realize that by chopping down trees and clearing land: covering it with tar and cement; they are depriving other life forms of their homes and food:  and with no photosynthesis from plant life where is the oxygen?

“photosynthesis

noun

the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize nutrients from carbon dioxide and water. Photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a by-product.”

Destroying insects will destroy the planet if we don’t cease this practice!

“If all the insects left the planet the planet would die.

If all the humans left the planet the planet would thrive.”

Isaac Asimov’s “The Gods Themselves” was a social satire on the fact that humans expect science to find a solution to problems that wouldn’t be there if humans refrained from raping the planet.

the gods themselves

 

Humans are already way beyond plague proportions and sooner or later something will have to be done.

Many who object to zero population growth do so because of religious beliefs.

I doubt that their god would approve of them destroying this beautiful planet?

In the 1950’s humans lived in fear of a nuclear holocaust: I am loathed to think about the fact that this is still a possibility: especially because it destroys all life, not just homo sapiens.

Better if humans who insist on killing one another do so using a virus: one that presumably targets a specific genetic marker so only the “enemy” dies.

At the beginning of this century I wrote a sci fi novel where humans were culled using nanites; this was before the remake of “The Day The Earth Stood Still”.                         Unlike the movie the nanites in my story were programmed to cull only human carnivores not harming any other life forms  😛

In another more recent sci fi  story (that I actually published)  most of the humans  were just deleted using an holodeck programme as the analogy.

 

On this cheery note 😛

enjoy your day.

****************************************

A few of us are sending healing at the same time each evening to mother Earth and all birds, animals, reptiles, insects, trees, plants, mollusc, arachnids etc.

(I include livestock and laboratory animals being freed and inhumane practices demolished)

If you wish to join in send healing (or pray if you have religious beliefs) at 8pm /2000hrs South Australian time: Just five minutes a night.

Similar endeavours have succeeded in the past on a smaller scale.

Even if you cannot send every night send on the evenings that you can.

 

If you’re are overseas and able join in just calculate the time. e.g. UK would be 11.30am

A Witch Hunt

witch hunts

(Burning of three witches in Baden, Switzerland (1585), by Johann Jakob Wick)

Decades ago I researched the “Inquisition” as part of a lecture I was giving on Wicca.

It started out as a means of getting rid of practitioners of the Old Religion and the women herbalists who were replaced by male doctors.

It became a money-making concern. Not only were the torturers and executioners paid but someone who wanted someone else property or position would accuse this person of being a witch and they would be tortured: even the pope would confess to the accusations after the third degree of the torture.

This torture and execution continued for several centuries.

I was in women’s liberation and I remember when, if a woman dared accuse some one of rape, she was portrayed in the law courts as a slut that deserved same.

There was a joke that there couldn’t be rape because “A woman can run faster with her dress up than a man with his pants down”.

So I was initially pleased when sexual assault accusations were taken seriously.

But this in my opinion has turned into a witch hunt, ruining celebrities lives.

Some of these celebrities are no doubt guilty but some, in my opinion, are not.

Even before I took screen studies (now called media studies ) in the seventies I was aware that the media could edit and alter both interviews and film footage to make it appear completely different than it originally was.

***************************************************

The following “ad” hasn’t been altered   😛

My book “The Clairvoyant Experiences Of A Sceptic” is available in paperback but unfortunately in Australia it is still only an E Book: hence Aussies are paying postage for the paperback.

It is $8 Australian

 

I am now set up to receive payment via PayPal for genuine clairvoyant readings.           You can pay online using your credit card, debit card or PayPal.” Just send me your email address for the invoice.

I  put the price up a little to cover my costs so online readings (via Skype or Messenger) are now $60.00 and emails $50 (With emails just email a recent photo)

To contact me the easiest would be via email katscho@iinet.net.au

(I am still able to see some aura colours and see and communicate with people that have “passed over” even though it is via electronic media.)

Look forward to hearing from you.

Blessed Be  Kate

The photo on the book and now my business cards was taken when I was 46: Twenty three years ago.

This is me now: NO, not the dog 😛

The Lunatic Fringe

Having been doing clairvoyant reading for forty years I am used to ridicule and it doesn’t bother me.

(It isn’t the reason that I stopped comments to this blog)

runes

What does bother me is being lumped together with sociopaths who con people with fake clairvoyance and charge a fortune .

They make those of us that are genuine appear to be con artists.

And I really, really, really, don’t like being put in the same category as people who are delusional; psychotic;  or just plain stupid and  phoney!

I know a few of these!

I am always honest with myself and have had amazing proof which because of Amazon terms and conditions re my non fiction book I cannot elaborate on.

 

Suffice to say – I always “keep it real”.

This applys to my every day life.

I prefer people who say what they mean and mean what they say.

If I find someone is two- faced, phoney or worse I give them a wide birth.

On my book cover I have a photo from when I was  46.

In line with my being honest it was taken 23 years ago.

Giving out my new business card to the local shops, I of course received comments about the photo on my new card  that was taken from my book cover:

These small business owners know me and have also experienced my genuine clairvoyance. They know that I wont take offence at their remarks.    😀

In my book I say at the end “this is what I look like now”.

Suffering chronic abuse and trauma affects ones health and appearance as those who have been through similar will testify.

So its not just old age making me look different.

I am still beautiful on the inside and that is what matters 😀

My favourite daughter says that I am beautiful on the inside and the outside:

but I think that she may be biased.

The picture is of  me, my son and daughter.

My favourite daughter in law suggested that I put a lollipop sign in front of my face.

Am considering it.  (Joking 😛  )

I recommend watching the movie “What The “Bleep” it was made at the beginning of this century but is certainly still worth watching.

DVD-Cover

I would also recommend reading my  book  😛

Ofcourse   —–gotta throw in an ad!

It is with Amazon

The paperback is not available in Australia so unfortunately Aussies will pay  postage from either UK or USA

It is $8 Australian.

It is free postage in the UK so I have suggested (jokingly ofcourse) that Aussies fly to the UK  for an holiday and buy my book while there    😛

 

It is called “The Clairvoyant Experiences of a Sceptic” by Kathleen Schofield

ELDER’S LIBERATION

This blog was motivated by someone commenting on Facebook that some elderly people may put the clocks the wrong way with daylight savings stopping.

kate at cafe lime

It is time for Elders Liberation!

In the 1970’s I was in Women’s liberation”.

Women had no rights and no status.

Ones status came from one’s husband.

All women were expected to be virgins and all men were expected to be promiscuous.

I never understood how that worked?!

!cid_76219CA3-0AC6-4C6F-815D-B365B657BA0B

Before the Industrial Revolution one’s status went up with one’s age.

Elders were respected!

Post-Industrial Revolution we see new things as good and old things as no good and this transfers to people.

My generation brought about changes for the better. Equality for the sexes

Equal rights for Afro -Americans; indigenous Americans and our indigenous Australians.

Acceptance of non-heterosexual preferences.

Rights for people with disabilities.

Great music:

And there is more.

We were “The Flower Power” generation yet I notice young people think we know nothing of sex.

Really!

Remember you will all be old one day unless you don’t live that long.

Fortunately, where I live most shop staff are respectful to the elderly because there is a large majority of retirees here.

Lately if someone patronises me I have started saying to  “I am old not stupid!”

I decided to include pictures of older actors that I admire.

I only chose four and there are many more.

Seeing Goldie Hawn’s picture remined me –

In the 1980’s the mother of one of our residents told me that I looked like a young Goldie Hawn.

I never understood why she said this because Goldie and myself would have only been in our thirties then.   And Goldie is only a few years older than me.

 

Happy Easter to everyone—even you young ones. AG00315_

Do Sociopaths Outnumber Empaths?

albert schweiter

Although I tend not to agree with the “New Age “stuff” one wise young lady suggested that I may be an “empath” and this fits.

I know several people who fit this category.

One of my issues with “New Age” is it has turned spiritual endeavours into the “Protestant Ethic” of money making: The other, it is populated by people who appear to believe utter “bovine faeces”.

This is a broad generalisation any many do “keep it real”.

I “pick up” on people’s feelings and those of other life forms.

When I was a child my mother threatened to have me put in a mental institution because I couldn’t bear to see anything suffer.

I hid a dog in the local church ( which was always unlocked in those days) so it wouldn’t be shot for breaking into the chicken run.

When I was at primary school we were being taught about Albert Schweitzer and our teacher thought him strange because he was upset by moths being attracted to a flame or light. I am the same! At night I make sure the curtains are completely shut so that the light doesn’t attract moths.

I also do my best not to kill anything.

This includes insects and rodents!

I have just seen a post about cruelty to pigs on Facebook and it has motivated me to re write and eventually re publish my fiction e Book.  I am writing this e Book for me.

I do my best not support the drug companies and the meat industry.

There are many horror stories but I will just tell one.

In 1982 the husband of one of my staff, who was carting stock to the abattoirs, asked me to report that suckie calves were left to die of dehydration and starvation:  I phoned  the RSPCA who called me a liar and a trouble maker: I then put something in writing but this was ignored.

I found out from people that work at the abattoirs or visit same that all new borns are left to die this way.

And to my knowledge this still happens.

A friend of my that used to work there told me earlier this century that the drug companies ask for this ( death by starvation and dehydration!) And my podiatrist told me that hormones build up in the tissues when they die this way and the drug companies harvest these.

In the seventies I was in Animal lib: Greenpeace:  and later Trees For Life. I was also in Women’s lib.

Women’s lib has gone to ridiculous extremes:

Animal Lib: Greenpeace and Trees For Life are just impotent bureaucracies: Animals still have no rights: And money is still more important than ecology.

And homo sapiens are way beyond plague proportions.

AG00177_

I haven’t put any clairvoyant stories in my blog of late: this is because I believe it unethical to relate peoples reading—but amazing stuff still happens.

The stories that I can tell are in my non fiction E Book and because I am with Amazon KDP I am legally not allowed to put them anywhere digitally.

I still haven’t the slightest idea about the meaning of life: The closest I can ascertain is that time is a dimension and linear time an illusion?

It doesn’t explain all the cruelty.

Blessed be.

Enjoy your day on this beautiful planet.

The Ramblings of an Old Person

 

11705092_780659772038958_878744170041603148_n

When I was young, after hearing old people go on about the good old days, I promised myself that I would not do this when I was old:  AND I AM NOT!

So much has improved in my life time:

Women now have equal rights and no longer take their status from their husband: (well not everywhere.)

Children have rights and are no longer meant to be “seen and not heard”:

Non-Caucasian races have rights and status:

Non-heterosexual relationships are accepted:

There is religious tolerance: (well not everywhere)

More people care about the ecology of our beautiful planet:

And more people care about non-human life forms:

More people care about trees:

AG00177_

I am starting to realize how old I am and that what younger generations see as history was a current event for me. e.g. I remember the moon landing – I was nine months pregnant.

The good thing about my childhood in South Australia in the 50s and 60s was that the population of Australia went from 9 million to 12 million.

Living in the suburbs in S A was like living in a country town.

I caught the train by myself from Salisbury (which in those days was a quiet country town and not the suburb from hell as it is now) to Gwen Mackey’s ballet school (which was near the Adelaide railway station) from age 8 until age 12. The reason I stopped was that I was sick of exams. Exams at school and exams at ballet!

(The following may sound like I am bragging but I had no self-esteem nor self-confidence because of a life time of abuse, starting when I was a baby, from the person that gave birth to me.)

In primary school I was always near the top of the class: My friend who I still keep in touch with (although she now lives in Canada) always came top. I came second in grade six but the other years I would usually be about  6th. We had large classes often sixty children in a class.

In the nineteen sixties children were allocated (from primary school) to an high school or a technical school after sitting an I Q test.

Then in high school we were designated into classes A B C or D

I was in “A” class and the girls in “A” class studied Latin instead of “Domestic Arts” (Home Economics)

In fourth year high school, I was made a school prefect.

sals high 1

I worked with computers that were the size of wardrobes in refrigerated rooms.

I worked on a switch board typing telegrams that were dictated to me.

I operated a telex that transmitted the news to radio and tv stations around Australia.

And there is more  😛

but fortunately I wont bore you with it.

 

I have confidence in the younger generation and  believe some of them will help heal our beautiful planet.

A friend now deceased used to say “There are always : The good: The bad: and the indifferent.” It is so true!

Blessed be

Enjoy your day

 

I have included some of my personal history in this E book which I hope to have printed: It explains how I know that I am really communicating with people that are no longer in this reality or this part of linear time. ( I don’t claim to understand the nature of reality) Check it out. You are able to read a sample for free.

 

 

Why Are We Here?

WP_20180301_09_11_07_Pro

 

I haven’t the foggiest idea but you may understand why I chose that as a title, later.

If I were paranoid I would think that there was a conspiracy by humans to destroy the planet as quickly as possible!

The drought in South Africa should be a wakeup call that humans are beyond plague proportions and wasteful of the planets resources. Why don’t we change?

Most people have thier sewage pumped out to sea. When I was a child I asked about this and was told that it evaporates and comes back to us as rain. How much does?

WATER IS ESSENTIAL

Trees are chopped down for housing development: farming; mining: etc.

People chopped down tress because the leaves fall on there lawn or concrete. Because they claim the roots are destroying the plumbing; the branches are touching the roof of the house. Or – trees are a fire hazard! No arsonists are a fire hazard!

TREES ARE ESSENTIAL

Humans kill other life forms because they can.

Insects and retiles because they don’t like them.

Mice and rats because they are vermin?

And where I live Corellas because they are noisy: Humans have destroyed most of the trees these birds can eat so they will soon be extinct.

We take the homes and food sources from all other life forms so eventually almost all other life forms will be extinct.

OTHER LIFE FORMS ARE ESSENTIAL TO THE PLANET’S ECOLOGY

Humans run wildlife over for fun.

Humans factory farm and mass slaughter livestock: When I comment about this I am told “That is why we grow them!”

So why are humans grown?

We experiment on animals and when I have commented on this I am told it helps find cures for humans (who are apparently the only species that matter?)

In 1982 the husband of one of my staff who was carting stock to the abattoirs asked me to report that suckie calves were left to die of dehydration starvation: I reported this to the RSPCA who called me a trouble maker and a liar.

To my knowledge this still happens:

I was told that all new borns are left to die this way: And a friend who worked at the abattoirs told  me that the drug companies ask for this: My podiatrist told me that  hormones build in the tissue when they die this way and the drug companies harvest them.

 

HUMANS ARE NOT ESSENTIAL

I question whether we are actually indigenous to this planet?

I theorized in one of my non fiction books that we were genetically engineered by E T’s using orangutan and pig DNA  and grown in a bovine’s womb. Some one said that there was a reference to us being genetically engineered in Mayan writings but I have never found this.

Before more businesses accepted PayPal I would buy a visa card (from the supermarket or P.O.) to use on line. I am sure most people think of this option.
