Free Puppet Show

What an outrageously beautiful weekend in Seattle. Probably the best "start of summer" weekend most of have ever experienced in this town. It bodes very well for the months to come.

Amongst the hundreds of things going on this weekend was the opening for The Puppet Show exhibit at the Frye. I missed it for the sunshine, but first cloudy day this week I'm there. It sounds to be an absolutely flabbergasting exhibit by some of the world's most respected contemporary artists - (Louise Bourgeois, William Kentridge, Bruce Nauman, Kara Walker, Dennis Oppenheim, Kiki Smith, Annette Messager and Survival Research Laboratories among other equally impressive names) - all of whom were specifically invited to exhibit their work with puppets, some of which was created specifically for this show. The Frye didn't organize this exhibition — it is the fifth stop of a traveling show curated by the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia — but it seems a particularly good fit for the Frye's sharp and uncommon focus on representational art. Jen Graves at the Stranger says "The Puppet Show...is one of those shows you can disappear down into, and at every level down you go, you will get something more. ...It's the oldest question—which parts of us do we control and which parts belong to systems that pull our strings?—asked another way. And what if we know about the strings? What then?" All together, there is work by some 30 artists on display, with over seven hours worth of video.

The show runs Tuesdays through Sundays until Sept. 13. The Frye has also programmed several complementary events, including an adult puppet cabaret hosted by local puppeteer Brian Kooser on June 30th, and a rare screening of The Music of Regret starring Meryl Streep and a dozen ventriloquist dummies on August 16. As always at the Frye Art Museum, admission is free.

The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
1. Alcohol
2. Drugs
3. Preditory "earning"
4. Homosexuality
5. Gambling
6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO.
It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. Revelry will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles will survive the 1000 years. They will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during Planet Earth's history.
If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new population, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial element in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.

Only children go to heaven. By the time you hit puberty it is too late. This is charecteristic of the gods:::Once you realize what you have lost it is too late.
Now you are faced with a lifetime to work to prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time, getting stoned, "Hiking!", working, etc.
