Maui's dolphin: Poetry book ~ Haiku-ish ... here some are ~ "Haiku-ish and Other Loving, Hippy, Harbin Poetry" ( http://www.scottmacleod.com/HaikuishPoetryBook.html )


Blackberries: Harbin Haiku-ish


Harbin Haiku-ish


Watsu in the heart pool
Two people water dance
Fluent ease together



Mind flowers stream
Through you, be-easing
Us deeply into warm waters



Sun on the hill trees
Above the pools
One bougainvillea crimson alit



Stylus on parchment
Love-symbols emerge
Warm pools' emergent ideas



the future of harbin
ten generations ahead ~
water, warmth, love



Harbin neurophysiology sings ~
what would extend these chemical
flows of mind-freedom?



hot pool, cold plunge
light through a leaf ~ fig:
green light smile



After the cold plunge, look up
through the woods 'round the pools
complexity, depth and light



deep sleep night
rad tent skylights
rested bodymind merges in pools



Wailing to the Harbin pools
Along the mountain path
Snow in the green canopy



Snow covers the pools' ridge line
Steam rises from the heart pool
Pool's warmth lingers in my body



walk over quiet water bridge
green springing up
here harbin hail now

Lagoon: Traveling, Friends, Beauty


The quiet of
the lagoon and
the open land

just northwest of
San Francisco and the
Golden Gate Bridge

sings soothingly.


No warm pools
at this beautiful
youth hostel here yet,
so, friends and focus. :)

In the space between warm water molecules, home at Harbin.


In the space between
warm water molecules, 
home at Harbin. 


Fluid, water suit 
fits all, in all ways, 
connectingly. 


Warm pool symbiosis, 
unfolds fluently, 
this water is live. 


Encompassed in warmth, 
releasing inside, 
warm pool surrounds, 
now. 


Tao is, 
in Harbin's warm water, 
one-now. 


Naked women are pretty, 
Harbin pool area-wise, ~ 
biology. 


People become 
water birds, 
bathing at Harbin. 


One with nature, 
Harbin's waters' warmth serene, 
come again and again. 


People wax water primates, 
nature-returning, 
warm pool nude oneness. 


January sunshine, 
people walk naked 
in watery light. 


Harbin's hippies 
un-commune communally, 
warm pool-wise. 


No hippies here, 
in Harbin's warmth ~ 
just naked, h2o be-ins.

Water lily flowers: In warm pool chez Harbin



Watsu 


In warm pool 
chez Harbin, 
both naked, 

he turned her bodymind, 
freely, in so many, 
almost trippy, ways, 

with skill, confidence, 
and wonderful, therapeutic 
assurance ~ normality in  

meditative freedom, 
in human wine cask rolling ...  
an emergent, Harbin skill ...  

and what lovely wine, 
dancing together 
in these wondrous waters!

Blue Bird-of-Paradise: Harbin Waters’ Cosmic Consciousness



Harbin Waters’ Cosmic Consciousness


One fig leaf dropped, 
golden in the warm pool, 
right in front of me – plop.

Meditating in lotus pose 
in warm water I was, and then 
drops another golden, fig leaf, 
to my right, but a little browner, 

from green~golden fig trees above. 
Easing inwardly myself near the stairs, 
she who is naked beautiful walks in, 

with lovely face, bosom, and hair, 
finding ease, in the warmth. 
She looks at me – connection. 

In the hot pool, next door, 
finding heated~water, immersive openings,  
she comes in, once standing in 

water near her long-haired, male friend. 
Are they connected?
She is beautiful in so many ways, 

proportional, nude, serene in being, 
connectable – but with friend, probably, 
a traveling companion, it seems. 

Back in the warm pool, 
I emerge heading for the hot pool again, 
and get a little dizzy, biologically, 

and, aware, observe how this 
could be similar to a biological or 
chemical door of perception opening

to Cosmic Consciousness, 
in another context. 
But what is the code 

to open these doors, neurophysiologically – 
and for all kinds of brain and bodymind
freedoms and transformations, 

naturally, but made real 
with entheogens and 
Mozart and Raga and the Grateful Dead

as well as India, Hindu and Harbin cultures?
How to open the doors, 
warm pools-wise, 

to eliciting loving bliss, and
to cosmic consciousness?

Further pool play welcome.

Forests surround,
Sun brightens day,
Into Oregon traveling to Reed.
Arriving, inspired to make music,
I walk over to the

That beautiful quad behind

with Scottish small pipes,
My harmonious om machine,
At 10:30 at night,
And play.

No one is around,
These pipes are sweet,
Tired I go to bed.

Minting a currency in California state legislature? Coding the WUaS / World University and School database for all 7.5 billion people

The U.S. Department of the Treasury is responsible for the agencies that mint and engrave currencies in the US.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_the_Treasury

Could the California state legislature do this for a cryptocurrency with block chain ledger planned on smartphones in all ~200 countries' official languages - and building this to become a world currency by giving it away in the form of an Universal Basic Income to refugees and the poorest people in all countries ... eventually to develop in the same way that the Euro - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euro - has replaced 19 out of 28 currency in Europe ...

How could this parallel the introduction of the Euro -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euro#Introduction?

"The currency was introduced in non-physical form (traveller's cheques, electronic transfers, banking, etc.) at midnight on 1 January 1999, when the national currencies of participating countries (the eurozone) ceased to exist independently. Their exchange rates were locked at fixed rates against each other. The euro thus became the successor to the European Currency Unit (ECU). The notes and coins for the old currencies, however, continued to be used as legal tender until new euro notes and coins were introduced on 1 January 2002."

Echo amphitheatre: Refugees, basic income and education / learning re WUaS?, Seems like a combination of all of these great online education platforms accessible on smartphones and on computers in languages and nation states of state-less people in refugee camps accessible via WIKI World University and School might be the answer, Basic income for refugees through mobile phones in part too?, Stanford "Medicine Grand Rounds: Protecting Civilians in War: Rethinking the Medical Response to Conflict"


Heard a great talk at Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds on Wednesday:

Medicine Grand Rounds: Protecting Civilians in War: Rethinking the Medical Response to Conflict


http://medicinecalendars.stanford.edu/event/medicine-grand-rounds-protecting-civilians-in-war/

While the talk focused on MD clinicians (and World University and School's medical schools with online teaching hospitals in all ~200 countries' official/main languages may be able to help with this too), Paul Wise MD also focused on the causes of war.

I asked afterward how a basic universal income might help {Quaker-wise} take away the causes of war, and Paul said that the issue in the largest refugee camp in the world (with about 300,000 people living there for more than 20 years) - and where there's cash assistance available from the U.N. or similar - was that the country didn't want the refugees to assimilate ... so a basic income might not work here, in protecting civilians from war ...

Why Finland’s Basic Income Experiment Isn’t Working

Conclusion:

"So what can we learn from all of this so far? How not to conduct a trial of this kind. Universal basic income can only succeed if the effort is sustained and widespread — and not available only to the unemployed. The program should not be intended to force people into low-paying jobs.
The Finnish government has a chance to correct its course. It should expand the trial in early 2018, as originally planned, and steer it back to its original ideals: a bold experiment to collect hard data about how a much-debated idea actually works in practice. Only that would honor Finland’s tradition of experimenting with innovative social policies."

Education in the Second Largest Refugee Camp in the World

https://www.globalpartnership.org/blog/education-second-largest-refugee-camp-world

*
According to our latest education report, 3.5 million refugee children did not attend school in 2016. Only 61 per cent of refugee children attend primary school, compared with a global average of 91 per cent.
As refugee children age, the obstacles to education increase. Just 23 per cent of refugee adolescents are enrolled in secondary school, compared to 84 per cent globally. For tertiary education the situation is critical. Only one per cent of refugee youth attends university, compared to 36 per cent globally.
