My Opinion of Life on Planet Earth in 2021: Volume II 🌍

Fast forward just over 3 months from my first blog,, and I have since been able to expand on it and discover so much in just about everything that I have interest in. This is giving me a better understanding of what others perceive. This is also a indirect way for me to research my Bipolar Perspectives in a social group. This might not be a conventional idea but it is worth a try.

Firstly, this blogging is simply fantastic! The opinions you encounter with people, their own thoughts and experiences, the sharing of knowledge and recommendations for increasing your learning. It’s been a pleasure so far and thanks for the interaction from all the people who I’ve encountered. I especially look forward to

The special thing about blogging is that you can be anonymous and private. You are posting on the internet but it’s not like a social media platform for advertising yourself. If people want to read what you are posting, then they choose to. That’s how I see it anyway.

Anyway, Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s showtime!

Propaganda, false prophets, purposelessness and parliamentary Pinocchio

So we are on the home straight now and finally about to conquer the COVID-19 Pandemic. In the UK anyway. I’m not going to start a debate about the why’s and what’s and how’s. What is done is done and that’s that. The only point I will raise however is that the information that has been fed to the Great British public left me scratching my head. The vaccine used was apparently a newly discovered method of defence against viruses.

This is from my university text book circa 2003.

The time it took to get the vaccine and then say it’s a new mechanism of defence when it’s actually being taught in universities for at least the last 20 years is disgusting

I’ve had both jabs now. As a 38 year old male with no history of physiological illness and consistently exemplary blood test results, I was in the high risk group. I was told that I was a high risk for COVID-19 due to my underlying medical condition. I have Bipolar Disorder. I’m still struggling to fathom out the way a mental illness is the reason. The medication that I have to take is the reason for it by the way.

So, I look it as a person who has at SMI (Severe Mental Illness), Bipolar or Schizophrenia, and are prescribed antipsychotics or anticonvulsants, have their immune system compromised by it. Now, this wasn’t explained to me and I guess others also found that it was forgotten to be mentioned by the psychiatrist? I have brought the question up and it is simply answered by ‘but you have the vaccine now and you were a priority for it. You have been stable on the medication and no episodes so it’s positive for you at the moment. You have to think about it and would you like to be experiencing what you were or how you are now?’

Why do I just say that you are right Dr. Thanks. Really I should be saying it shouldn’t be a choice and you don’t have any right to say that it is a positive just because I have fitted in to your tick box questionnaire.

The pharmaceutical industry is all about greed, money and profits. My blog instead-of-5-fruit-veg-a-day-im-on-14-pills-a-day shows the pills that they prescribe for the problems of today. Seems everyone is going to have the Vaccine. That non-compulsory vaccine everybody has to have. If you don’t have it then you can’t go on holiday etc.

The propaganda is that strong in the UK, that people believe what they want rather than what they see. The Country were an Instagram post is more influential than lessons in the classroom.

The videos of this Doctor are constantly being taken down and he is discredited for speaking about what is happening. He is speaking sense as far as I am concerned. He’s upsetting the apple cart so his videos are removed from YouTube. The taking down of videos is the modern day equivalent of burning books.

Now, on to the leaders of our respective countries. Are they really the best we have? I’m going to leave it at that!

I have found the works of Alan Watts highly intriguing. Why aren’t his philosophies taught in Schools? The purposelessness of being alive is the key for happiness in my opinion;

You pick up a pebble on the beach: look at it, beautiful, don’t try to get a sermon out of it. Sermons-in-stones and God-in-everything be damned – just enjoy it! Do not feel that you have got to salve your conscience by saying that this is for the advancement of your aesthetic understanding. Enjoy the pebble. If you do that, you become healthy. You become able to be a loving, helpful human being. But if you can’t do that, if you can only do things because they’re somehow, you are going to get something out of it, you are a vulture.

So, we have to learn, you don’t have, you know, you don’t have to do anything, but it is a great idea, it is a great thing if you can learn what the Chinese call “purposelessness.” They think nature is purposeless. When we say something is purposeless, it is a put-down. There is no future in it, it is a washout. When they hear the word purposeless they think that’s just great. It is like the waves washing against the shore, going on and on, forever, with no meaning.

It’s like if you go out for a walk with a destination in mind, then your outbound journey is fixed on that destination and you are focusing on that. Imagine if you’re just walking with no destination or reason for it other than walking. You have no purpose for the walking so that it is purposeless. You will find that you are at your most beautifully engaged with your own unique being and your at one with everything around you by the purposelessness of your actions.

Now on to the people who lie more than weather reporters ⛈☀️☃️☔️💨

I have come up with an idea. Connect all these politicians who address the public, to a lie detector for the duration of their speeches.

I’m not sure what the hell is going on with the World at the moment. It’s been a weird decade so far. I do have to admit I suspect that there is an ulterior motive for the occurrences so far that plainly don’t add up. Materialism is the new Communism it seems and the pen drive is definitely mightier than the sword. I’m just glad I’m the age I am as I wouldn’t have wanted to grow up now.

I’m just going to continue learning Spanish and Portuguese. Playing my guitar. Listening to my music. Reading my books. Colouring my pictures. Enjoying your blogs. Appreciating family and friends. Learning about how bipolar works. Supporting the Dale. Golf 🏌🏽

In closing I’ll leave you with this 👌

I’m a 38 year old male who has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I have found it as a new chapter in my life that has opened my eyes to a whole new perspective on myself and everything around me.

  1. Thanks for the shoutout- glad you’re enjoying the six word stories!

    I definitely agree that people tend to listen to what they hear or see on the internet rather than actual fact because I see it all the time. It’s super frustrating but I honestly don’t know how anyone can stop it.

    1. No worries 😉 I just think we need to let them be and leave them to it. It’s only by making mistakes we learn. Also, there’s an old adage that you can take a horse to the trough but you can’t make it drink the water
