    Well the red oils of dry distillation are as good as anything to be considered the sulfur of the plant kingdom i think. They are fire proof, and volatile, and most importantly (imo) RED. Inhad a really profitable opal day today and i didnt die which are both big blessings.

    I was mining, then went to work, then went out 'noodling' with a black light and now its midnight and im stuffed.

    Goodnight my friend(s)

    Wishing you the best.

    The dry distillation stuff has been put on the backburner. I'm experimenting infrequently with what I have as I feel like it. My paleolithic alchemy experimentation is going quite well though. I keep finding bits of the literature as I proceed. The process has be fruitful in terms of producing curiosities, but mining the sulfur of the vegetable kingdom is not straightforward. Once I have my new process worked out, there are 2 materials that I would like to put through the trials to boost my confidence in it, and after that, I'll go after the animal and mineral kingdoms with the same. Quite exciting. Don't know if it will produce the stone, but then who knows until you put it in a pot with molten lead?

    Yes, i have found some valuable opal. Im not selling it though. Im keeping it for my children to inherit. I went out today and found some really promising bits of trace so im going tomorrow morning again to have a go; its getting pretty dangerous though. I might give it a bit of a break after tomorrow.

    Gall bladder and come to think of it, the rest of my body is fucked. I havent been taking care of myself very well at all (ever). However, ive stockpiled a rediculous amount of medicinal herbs, and ordered a few special medicines to help kick off my new health craze that begins in two days. Andro pointed me in the direction of a medicine that may be of use in combating the gall, however i think its more aimed at thoroughly cleaning out the digestive tract so that the body can absorb nutrition properly again which should help with everything. Should be here on monday so we'll see how that goes. Okra E-3 or something... a few people from the forum tried it with great results so....

    Anyway, how are your dry distillations going? Are you consuming the stuff your making?

    Nice. Phosphorescence is a wonderful thing. Did your blacklight opal hunt fetch you some monies for the family?

    How about them gallstones? I never saw an update about that. When my gallbladder was taken out (undergoing necrosis) I was passing a stone the size of a quarter about the same time every night. It was an awful experience, so I know the pain.

    It is as predicted... not ALL crystaline structures emit this light under blacklight (and also store... all minerals that reflect also gather energy and glow for short periods of time after the black light is removed)

    NaCl does not.
    KCl does not.
    Selenite (gypsum) does not
    Desert roses (gypsum) DOES.
    Calcite DOES.
    Hymilaian.. is wonderful... most does not glow... and then there is an incredible ray of orange, blue, green and bright yellow. Specs in the NaCl matrix. Incredible (imo)

    The work progresses.....

    Oh i have no envy for any person who may be more wealthy than I. Jealousy is far from me, ive never had a problem in with it, more a problem in understanding how prople end up with jealousy instead. I dont really understand it at all.

    I feel it can only really happen to a person (become jealous) when they are unaware of their own purpose and they get jealous of others purpose...

    And i do love most of my work. Just the things im not good at (house keeping) is the bit i hate. I love working in the kitchen i enjoy myself a lot.

    When you are at work just think about the love you have for your
    wife and children .... and nothing else .... every day, minute and
    second will be filled with joy.

    There will be no such thing as a shitty job because you will not be
    thinking about yourself all the time ... this way you will become more
    caring for others.

    Remove this envy you have of others and fill the space with love for
    your family.

    Life will become so much easier and smooth for you.

    40 hour work week? Are you on holiday or something. LOL.

    Also I have noticed that if you work for free when you have the time (in addition to paid work), it usually leads to more money or better work. Energy out, energy in. Don't know where you are but try and find some non-paid work and add that to your schedule.

    That was gold Andro. Thank you. I had a good chuckle.

    I do believe in hard work; im just frustrated because i believe that tesla gave us all this stuff way back then and that we should be doing BETTER things with our time and resources.

    Our forfathers ALREADY paid for what is available in the system today, we could/SHOULD all be happy and healthy by now with a far better feveloped social system but we have a serious FAT-CAT problem thats causing people to horde and manipulate and bring un-necessary friction and load on the system by giving in to their urges to fly a private jet filled with hookers to the brothels once a week.

    So you can see, that me taking what is basically a minute and insignificant amount of what is actually my entire blood line inheritance that has been squandered and stolen, to have a little happy family and find a way to relieve pain and suffering is actually a great, fulfilling, and joyful lifestyle; hence why i continue to forever make a point of showing people the epic happyness joy and confidence in life that i experience living this way....

    Now the doles not the answer, it comes to what was mentiined recently on another post 'minimizing expenditures'

    I have created happiness from a very small amount and it has taken time and is still in the workings to perfection.

    I make mistakes that arnt in line with my philosophy(ies) and this is where the friction in my life stems.

    I want to work hard. But i want to be doing it to give people ultimate peace and joy, not to serve people who are richer than me, and helping them to abuse me, my fellow man and the earth for their own greed/pride/ignorance.

    I understand the view of people who have busted their asses for the system, just to get by and that there is nobel professions that assist in peace and joy.
    BUT THE SYSTEM IS FUCKED. Which is the only point i was really making and yes i was whinging aswell like a little bitch about having to push a little harder than usual.

    You got a problem with that?

    I'm sure we're all eagerly waiting (and praying) for Jesus to arrive and pay EMs bills for electricity, gas, water, food, sewage and Internet out of HIS own pocket, so EM can have everything for free without doing any work (as god obviously intended) and finally stop whining and continue to periodically entertain us by informing everyone how epic he is, and to freely desecrate the cadaver of what's left of English grammar and orthography on the Internet

    Or, in the unlikely case that Jesus fails to deliver, he can just move to the jungle or rain-forest and eat fruit from the trees and drink water from the river... and live the good life!

    All in good spirits!

    Seth, well said.

    The other option is to reduce expenses so we don’t have to work 50-60-70 hours per week. Unfortunately I haven’t figured out how to lower my expenses as of yet. Maybe just as elusive as the PS. lol

    Food, clean water, and electrical power have never been "free", by God or anyone else. It takes work and knowhow to hunt and/or cultivate food (not counting cleaning, storing, and importing). It takes work and knowhow to properly clean water and prevent all manner of contaminants and diseases, while also maintaining the systems that allow it to flow into the homes of all within an area. It takes work and knowhow to generate electrical energy in the amounts required to run our electrical societies, create and maintain the infrastructure that allows the volume of current and power to unabashedly course through our homes, and all of these things require people to care, maintain, innovate, and provide service for all the customers in their fields of influence; people which need to be paid so that they can also take care of their selves and families and expenses.
    None of it is free, nor should it be expected to be. Gratidude for the society you have and the privilege it provides you should be the prayer at the end of every breath - especially with the knowledge of how many are sacrificed for the causes of the minerals, resources etc that you are allowed, while they themselves die daily enmass.

    Working a 40 hour work week is standard. Emergency services tend to work far more. On the ambulance I was working a regular 24 hour shift, occasionally doing 48s. All the paramedics did 48s, and there were times we had to pick up 72 hour shifts due to sickness or general call-ins. (And we made garbage pay, even with the overtime, and no benefits.)
    Now I work as an EMT and security officer for the local casino, doing 40 hour work weeks (8 hour shifts), making more per hour than the paramedics on the ambulances. We hold lives in our hands, and barely can get by. But that's life - we work, and use what is afforded us, in time, experiences, and resources, and do more.
    As we were taught in the army: "embrace the suck."
    Learn from it, try to enjoy it, and grow from it. You are always where you need to be at any given moment, for reason seen and unseen. You'll only connect the dots looking backwards, not forwards. So enjoy the seemingly hectic ride and appreciate it.

    The car actually helps provide the scale for how big that mine is... wow!! Not sure how you keep people out unless you're there 24x7. Also, if you're starting your alchemical work next week who's going to mind the mine?

    Ill r y and take some today. Not sure how they will come out in photos because the lighting needs to be really specific to see the coloirs but we'll hve a crack.

    Thats my wifes car in the photo. That hole probably cost about 300,000 dollars to dig. So im very lucky to be able to just walk into and peg that mine. People are very jealous as we can see from all the security issues im having...
