Are My Eyes Decieving Me?...YES!!

Hey gals and girls, today I wanted to relay a strange new occurrence, one that’s a bit disconcerting while happening and it’s happened on two distinct occasions in the last 24 hours. What is this occurrence you ask, what has excited me so? Well, it went something like this.

While watching an adventure movie yesterday morning, there was a fight scene developing and it seemed as though I was shadowing the prime character, dodging each and every punch as he did when suddenly who should appear but my old friend hallucinations. Immediately, it was as if I was in the most complete 3-D experience ever invented along with all the other combatants when I looked up at the screen and saw the most realistic fist coming straight toward my nose. I was so sure this was real that I ducked to the right hard and came within an inch of falling out of my chair.

OK, so that was unsettling but, hey, at least it’s over and I think some downtime is in order. But our ever present party companion is not about to sit still for that. No, he was intent on convincing me that the suddenly on-coming train, shown me in such a realistic fashion as to be indistinguishable from the real deal, was on a collision course for my face. As I throw up my hands for protection I realize I’m thinking about how realistic the new 3-D technology has become. Funny how your mind can create better imagery than the most sophisticated technology.

That’s it. Just wanted to share those little happenings and their unexpected reality. Short and sweet thi time.

Oh, BTW, I would love to any thoughts you may have on such situations...

Dementia Cannabis Update

Update: 22 July
Project started, grow page and journal is here:

Operation: Constant Clarity


This is one of the most difficult posts I have had to write, mostly because I "had" to. Allow me to explain and I promise by the end you will not only understand the "difficulty" and the "had to" bit but also I hope you come away with a few new assumptions or conclusions, you pick and if all that passes you by, perhaps you will find illumination as this is some serious "dementia from the inside out" kinda shit.

The 18:1 Theory
Before I tell you what happened, please recall I have expressed a theory or hypothesis on the effects of a cannabis extract/concentrate that tests out to have a CBD:THC ratio of 18-1 on the demented mind. By demented I mean any brain with not just dementia but anything that alters so-called normal operation. I don't mean anything like it fixes everything, rather there are things that are fixed by this like PTSD and ADD that you …

Be Who You Actually Are

Many moons ago I was starting my day like many of us enjoying the gifts of dementia by spending most of it screwing up each and every thing I attempted to do, large or small and usually in ways both spectacular as well as costly.  On the verge of tears I spent about an hour medicating with my very best botanicals when I had the BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious, engineer-speak): I am still attempting to be something that I am not only NOT but barring acts of a supreme deity, never will be again. Its just that damned simple.

* What makes a persons personality unique is the precise set of influences, patterns of thinking, lifetime experiences or memories amongst many other things. These are all stored and/or controlled by the brain.

* The root cause of dementia is damage to select portions of the brain.

* For better or worse, the simple truth is that this will result in a different person. Not better or lesser, simply different, in the same way that any two coworkers might be very dif…

Holy Crap Batman! A hero with dementia!

Braven 2018
Hey kids, I ran across something you just HAVE to watch. I mean you as in readers of these words. Looking for entertainment last night I was scrounging some of the dodgier parts of the Internet for something not involving a cape or "found footage" to watch. Long story short I ran across something from this year (2018) called Braven, starring Jason Mamoa (Aquaman/Ronin on Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen Lang (the major hard-ass in Avatar).  Plot reads like a B-roll actioner, drug dealers drop in on county folk and try to take them on their own turf. I agree, major tired plotline BUT......
Here is the kicker: The country folks (Mamoa/Lang) are in the cabin in the woods kinda thing because Lang (plays Mamoas dad) has alzheimers (he blames it on some Vietnam injury but...) and got into a fight at a local bar, thinking some girl was his dead wife out on the town. 
Of course Jason beats everyones ass in proper manner as it should be but thats why these two are in the c…
