This topic is a living view of 2021. From mysticism, science, innovation, humanities, earth change, astronomy, spirituality. This wide spread topic is for you to read, contribute, enjoy.
I'd like to start with a presentation from Sadhguru Darshan, who is a renown Indian Mystic, on New Years Eve, 31 December 2020. The evenings discourse was on what to expect of 2021.
2020 was like... this...

Regional news for the day.
There is growing concern that the new Covid19 vaccines will need to be re-evaluated in light of the new higher transmissible SA/UK variant. Just as light was beginning to emerge at the end of a very long and gloomy tunnel, the South African variant of the coronavirus threatens to undermine the vaccine and testing gains of recent months.
UK has gone back into full lockdown (surprise!)
Covid19 Pandemic - Conspiracy
There is growing social media and video posts denying the existence of a Covid19 Pandemic. Seriously; taking video or pictures of empty halls, empty wards, empty ambulances does not prove anything. Outpatient wards and hallways are empty - of course. You don't think highly contagious people are lying in hospital corridors or in the general outpatients area? You must be joking. There are also increasing numbers of remote video appointments. Covid 19 wards are out of bounds to non-infected and general populations. Just like the 'toilet roll' brigade from 2020, you need to learn --- freedom of speech also has responsibilities.
Rowan Atkinson says cancel culture is digital equivalent of 'medieval mob'
Online cancel culture is like a "medieval mob looking for someone to burn", Rowan Atkinson has claimed.
The star of Blackadder and Mr Bean has long advocated for free speech and has campaigned against legislation he believes stifles expression.
Atkinson, 65, is fearful of the online practice of silencing unpopular opinions by calling out those who hold them and making them pariahs. He has compared the trend to medieval societies rooting out heretics to burn at the stake.
The actor believes this culture of "cancelling" individuals is a threat both to the victims of the online mob and to the future of free speech.

Ongoing look from the mystical community, we'd love to introduce this introduction to 2021 by Abraham Hicks, a well known western spiritual presenter. Presented as is.
the qanon crowd in New Zealand is particularly incompetent, marching on parliament yesterday not realising politicians still on holiday. today is Jan 15, the day they claimed NZ would go into lockdown. that has not happened. Hehehe.... let's get it real, shall we?
URGENT UPDATE TO THE FOLLOWING CRITICAL POST DISCOVERED ON YOUTUBE 1 DAY AFTER POSTING:
Please watch the youtube video shown in the post following this one that remarkably, confirms much of what we wrote in this post based on instinct. The youtube video makes huge sense.
I'm going to talk to you today about the so called vaccine from the newest coronavirus, that which we lovingly call Covid-19. I'm not here talking as if some all knowing godlike creature, nor a peer-tested scientist, virologist or micrbiologist. I'm going to talk from the perception of a instinctual human being who sees, reads and is incredibly analytical - capable. And I kid not in saying that not once, in the entire of 2020, did we ever state a covid-19 claim incorrectly. In fact quite contrary, every claim was found true. So what I say here is founded on the principle of open dialogue which you can accept, or reject, find wanting or otherwise.
We aren't here to tell you what to do. To take, or deny, a claimed vaccine. Or to breath for that matter. We deny any authority or certification, degree or warrant. We are just here to express our loving opinion and like many, seek resolve. We just want to seek open dialogue and sort through the misty veil of buried truths and half truths.
First, let's make a few things clear we should be able to agree on.
Covid-19 is not the first virus on the human - world stage. It is not the first pandemic. It is not the first (nor likely the last) 'control organism' of any type that has (and will) cause issues of health and bodily death.
If the world's human population, in its' entirely, shut up and stayed home for fourteen days, the virus issue would become an almost insignificant issue. It would return with isolated longer term incubation (which could re-spread) and there would still be 'long covid' health issues to deal with.
And then there's hard to agree points.
The vaccine is not a true vaccine. You see, science has been trying to develop a true vaccine for over a decade and has failed. We actually don't have a proper cure for a coronavirus any more than we do for the common cold.
This current vaccine (for want of a word) is not tested fully, it is not entirely safe, and it is likely to be distributed to the wrong population out of survival - greed.
None-of the above says you should or should not take it. That is your choice (if the powers that be offer a choice.) But you should consider this again: Just as we don't have a proper fix for the common cold or even the flu virus, we don't have a proper fix for the Covid-19 coronavirus. It's that simple. Still not convinced? Then were is the cure for the common cold which has been around for.... or since dot. No? Ok, every year people are offered injections (vaccine) for the flu, but every year it returns. Still not convinced?
If the coronavirus vaccine is not a true vaccine, what is it (and you will note, I am not using scientific or medical terms. It pays to keep it in simple language at this point).
I sense that the vaccine is a genome blocker. Something about it reminds one of the plastic casing around live wires in your common electrical systems. You see, the human body can still be wrecked and destroyed by the virus, so the fix is to protect the systems by a layer of genome blockers. It won't stop you carrying the virus within its habitable life span. It won't stop you transmitting the virus to another mindless host. The 'vaccine' doesn't have to stop anything being caught or transmitted. It just has to block it's damaging effects.
So, I suspect we are adding to our human genome systems. A modification. It may pay on that basis to check carefully before proceeding if you have major organ issues or electrical / nerve issues (like MS, Parkinsons...) or are immune compromised. We have yet to see how many compromised human units become terminal shortly after the vaccine is introduced (and get white-washed in the 'they were of age/illness' answers.)
I'm not saying this is a bad thing, just, ask.
The other point I wish to make in this post, is that the effects of Covid-19 can last years (we call this Long Covid.) If you suffer any current health issue, then get Covid19, and then get vaccined, I have to wonder!
To be continued. Feedback welcomed.
Looking forward to seeing the back of all that eh?!
We have been asked if we would restart a care centre. Of course we're keen and put our hand out for sufficient member interest to help make this happen. It just takes numbers which creates the vital energy for this to work. Let us know if your interest in helping.
Well, this is the point that Shona Roskam made a week back. We're too busy not noticing the wider world. Not one reply to a kindly suggestion to put best foot forward and restart a care centre. We've bloody well given up on the rest of the world?! What is wrong with you all. Read and don't do? See and don't reply? Don't care? What are you waiting for?
Time for me to be miraculous. You lot are already in to NOTHINGNESS.
Footnote.... meant for those who have gone to sleep into the darkness. Bring back the light when you reply, won't you 🙂
Whilst on news, Aaron F. (aka historically, Ignacious) would like to bring your attention to something we all missed.
I wish to impose a 'please explain' as the animated image is not in itself an explanation.
Happy birthday for yesterday, Karen. Hope it was grand.
Good evening all.
A quick promo to support SPCA: If you didn't know already some SPCA Shops are open Sundays. If you have any items you no longer need. Please call in and donate. They are always looking to restock. Check your local area for news.
Been a quiet day. Old Ford Laser filled with some petrol. Had it off the road since 2017 but new light in (thanks Son). I've filled it, replaced the battery and now needs a good clean and just a general check before WOF and then back on Rego.
I realise we've been on our own journey's so to speak and everyone's going to have new life stories to tell. Nothing truer than that. The world has changed and we have marched on.
For the future forum activity, I've been looking at passive income methods (if you've not noticed.) That means that for every say $5/mo in passive income, that's one member fee covered.
At the moment, I'm near 2 mo's in testing and stats gathering. I have always wondered why I kept up IT/Technical and trade skills and materials. Well, the home workshop office is quietly doing just what was asked. To see about using equipment for passive income.
What are forms of passive income?
Passive income is like interest in the bank. For an initial investment or amount of set-up, you can watch it grow. Even if slowly.
For me, passive income has come by way of technology. I've used existing and a small amount of new equipment, with the existing networking and tech savvy setup, to build crypto mining units.
What is crypto mining you ask (not?) Most think this is related to Bitcoins. It is. But only in part. Crypto mining is using technology, systems, to 'mine' crypto currency data. For mining crypto currency data, you build up points. Those points accumulate into different types of crypto coins. Some well known apart from Bitcoin, are Ravencoin, Litecoin, Etherium and so on. So, we've been using hardware and programming to mine those currencies.
There are technicalities. For instance, the longer the world 'mines' those crypto coins, the harder they are to find and the more powerful the machinery required to mine them. To mine Bitcoin directly, at this time, you require graphics cards in your systems at least of 6Gb itself (that's the Gigabytes of memory just on each graphics card, let alone the actual computer) and commercial miners out there are running tens of thousand of graphics processors (called a GPU, graphics processing unit).
For us, we're still in trial period so we can be improve methods of how it works. But we're already mining and already accruing crypto coins from that activity by mining lower memory requirement coins as prior mentioned with 4Gb GPUs (mainly Ravencoin.)
Where is it at? Well, at present we're accumulating 'coins' so to speak. On a modest scale. We need to work out how to increase current processing. We need to work around the number one other issue which is power consumption. It is likely we will end up with solar power and battery connectivity. With that mastered, we would be on track for a charitable end cause and be running activities benefiting a growing number.
That's that. Except, I haven't updated the stats for a while on the other forum page. Will do.

Ngā mihi, Kevin.
And here we are, in Level 4 Lockdown! We were right to post the prior notice. And people are still deciding whether or not to 'get the jab' or risk the 'rona.' Its a personal choice.
Leading up to 31 August 2021, the situation in Afghanistan is one of pure terror for many who are stuck there and for foreign nationals including Kiwi families.
Western nations have warned of a possible attack on Kabul’s airport, where thousands have flocked as they try to flee Taliban-controlled Afghanistan in the waning days of a massive airlift.
With the August 31 deadline looming for the US to totally withdraw troops from America's longest war, several nations have landed flight after flight onto the single runway at Kabul's international airport to evacuate thousands of people who fear a return to the Taliban's brutal rule.
Now some countries have begun to even pull their soldiers and diplomats out, likely signalling the beginning of the end of one of history's largest airlifts. The Taliban have, so far, honoured a pledge not to attack Western forces during the evacuation, but insist the foreign troops must be out by the end of the month.
But new warnings have emerged from Western capitals about a possible threat from Afghanistan’s Islamic State group affiliate, which likely has seen its ranks boosted by the Taliban’s freeing of prisoners during their blitz across the country. Already, military cargo planes leaving Kabul airport have launched flares to disrupt any potential missile fire.
Kabul bombing: 60 civilians, 12 US service members killed
Another 143 were wounded in the attack, with an Islamic State affiliate considered more radical than the Taliban thought to be responsible.
NZDF had concluded activities from the airport on Thursday night (last night) after three flights evacuating New Zealanders, visa holders and Afghanistan nationals with New Zealand associations. They have closed their mission to evacuate persons from Kabal at this time owing to activities.
