Greetings Bobby Kelton, I have a question I would have loved to ask you after your spectacular performance at Floral Lakes in Delray Beach two nights ago. It was very Spectacular!
I am an author and have always wondered why it appears there is no such thing as classical humor; why humor loses meaning and power with time and even culture. You have broken that rule! Let me tell you why.
You did something totally amazing as I perceived it. In my mind, you extracted the essence of humor (the human condition) and clothed it in the cultural experience of your audience just for that evening, even down to “The Boys Supermarket” joke about the parking lot being so much bigger than the store… for sure! This is like being able to tell jokes in every language on Earth!
Is my perception correct? Do you visualize the humor in the human state and just re-clothe it in culture and local demographics for your listening audience? It sure seemed like you were talking to just me.
I cannot see how you did what you did otherwise and I am pretty imaginative. You see, you could not go back to the Johnny Carson show even if he was still alive (I do miss him). You have transcended that level of performance in your life and even though Floral Lakes does not seem as challenging as Johnny Carson on T.V. live, your performance was far better because you are now a Classical Comedian. I have never seen one before and I am not sure there is another anywhere. Congratulations!
That is my two Bitcoins 🙂

Are Dreams Just Symbolic? Learned men, of significant stature, assure us that our dreams are nothing more than symbolic and expressive venting of our emotional life experience! I have trouble with this concept; because I believe in Dragons. Maybe you should too!
Lucid Dreams Prove Symbolism? In “The Source Field Investigations“, David Wilcock offers carefully explained concepts taken from Dr Stephen LaBerge’s dream research. LaBerge teaches us how we can transform our routine dream experience to Lucid Dreams and in so doing, take control of their outcome. In the process, he explains, the symbolism of your dream experience may become more manifest. He describes this in an example of the ogre, who is about to beat you to death, being transformed by your spiritual love, into a flash of light that melts into your own body and vanishes. Now, LaBerge says, you know the ogre was a dream projection of a part of yourself, that you had yet to forgive and accept, nothing more. We are then told, that researchers who study dreaming find strong agreement in the symbols and the symbolic nature of dream experiences. This is an elegant integration of psychology and dreaming for those who need fairy tales; but, again I must say that I believe in dragons! In his book, “Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind,” Graham Hancock explores both his own personal journey and years of study by many researchers. In this story, Hancock, finds that symbolism crosses cultures, religions, time and space to bare witness to an alternative plain of existence, rather than a common archetypal symbolism as portrayed by Carl Jung. In my book, “Not Kid’s Games,” I explore the consequences of the infinite paths of an infinite universe. If you have yet to read my “Science fiction” book, Not Kids Games, than for just a moment, fill your mind with its foundational research, slip into the path of its comet like ride and see the universe from another perspective!
The Consequences Of Thought. Think for a moment, outside the box with me, and envision a world that is not just holographic but built of infinite infinities, then lets look at the consequences and we will find where my dragons live!
- In a holographic universe, every point has all the knowledge of every other point; but, like a Jpeg image, it begins to fade and lose detail as it is compressed smaller and smaller. So here in our tiny bodies (Jpegs) we clearly experience the world of our own local ongoing creation but only vaguely sense being part of the infinite consensual universe. This gives us a laser like focus on our “unique” journey in our special reality and yet a feeling for our ultimate origin and destination in death.
- Now lets consider Nassim Haramein’s concept of infinites bounded by finite space. If you understand, much as Nassim Haramein teaches, that an infinity can be found in a finite space, you will realize that there is not one universe but surely a multi-verse (which to me means an infinite number of universes of infinitely large or small size). Wow! That is a lot to ponder but its consequences are worth trying! Trust me on this and I will elaborate as we go on. For now just think of infinite universes by picturing each universe as grain of sand, when seen from afar. Now in your mind’s eye toss that infinite sand into infinite space. Remember the concept of a Galaxy contained in a Jewel such as that on the “belt” worn by the cat, Orion, in the movie Men In Black?
- Spinoza. Add one more ingredient to our stewing thoughts and we will complete the recipe for a land where Dragons may be as real as you and I (for whatever that means). Recall how Spinoza explained the Ultimate Substance (cosmic consciousness) as containing everything in order for it to be God Like and therefore omniscient as well as omnipotent? If this is true then every thought, every dream, every picture in your mind, in all its infinite variations, must truly exist, for without it, the cosmic is not omnipotent nor is it omniscient. Another way of understanding this is to consider what you see when you stand between two parallel mirrored walls. As you gaze into the “unending” fractal like image of yourself and anything else in that space, the endlessly repeating images may seem to curve away and morph just slightly as they flow beyond our viewpoint. Every object in the universe, every event in time, must have a nearly perfect duplicate with some small variation, or else the universe we live in is not infinite. [the mind expanding graphic at the left can lead you to more help on understanding fractals at the fractal foundation, its origin]
My dragons are hungry, as it is early morning in Narangia. I can hear them beating their leathery wings against the bronze bars that form the gates to their stables. It is located just before the bridge in front of our castle. They know this will get my attention and I will come and feed them. Then I will take one chosen one, as is my habit, for a flight high over our city walls.
Now that you have eaten my my mind-filling stew, rich in esoterics , what happens when you dream of the Ogre? You recall, the Ogre with the steel like death grip around your neck, who is about to beat you to death? When you now express infinite love for all living beings and beam that from your eyes to his soul, he again melts into your being and all is well; but, it no longer means that he is a small mundane projection of you, that you are dealing with on Freud’s Couch. Now instead it is your real experience in one of the infinite universes. An experience in which the flash of light is your death from his wrecking ball like fist and the merging is now your return to the cosmic. In the cosmic you find awareness of your true self, your infinite nature no longer compressed to a Jpeg of human existence. For the moment, you are dead physically but alive spiritually.
It may be true that the objects in your dream were experienced because of your mental state, created my external or internal frustration (stimuli). They are easily labeled “symbolic.” On the other hand, your mind may have tuned into the infinite experience that the universe (cosmic consciousness) knows! Though it can be symbolic to you, it is as real somewhere in the universe as is your awakening in a sweat, with ice cold skin and an ache in your stomach. When you are half awake in your miserable state of sleep crying, “no more, no more” it is because you are tired of death and re-birth to a new world with hidden pain as well as some pleasure. For a moment you recall that, like the fractal image above, you are born over and over, a small probe launched into the cloud of reality to bring back knowledge of one variation on experience. As you bask in the all knowing light of the Cosmic, for a moment, before you consciousness re-compresses to a Jpeg, you understand the dream of infinity! You know there is dark and there is light, there is cold and there is hot, there is infinitely big and infinitely small.
The universe (reality) is, as Nassim Haramein says, perhaps being created and destroyed by a toroidal rotating field of energy, a 3-D version of the flat oscilloscope image. From the infinitely large, your true self for a timeless instant, you are now again compressing to an infinitely small dot of Jpeg consciousness in the endless storm of the sea of life’s adventure. Every symbol in the dream of life or the dream of sleep, is an attunement of your mind adjusted to the symbols vibrational frequency like an FM radio. As you tune into each “station,” the meaning of its story is best gathered by your experience, in which you feel the pain or joy of its alternate reality. If it was a ‘bad” dream, and you cry “no more pain, no more pain” it is up to you to change the channel.
Something to think about.
Does brain size matter? Einstein had a smaller brain, Edison said he learned 10,000 ways not to make a light bulb by failing his way to success. Henry Ford had little knowledge of many subject other than manufacturing that interested him.When publicly accused of being an “idiot,’ he said, he could find a fact man, if he needed one, for 25 Cent and hour salary. Or better yet purchase and Almanac for 25 Cents. Why should he clutter his head with useless trivia? What made all these people succeed was not necessarily genius but more likely the Magic Of Thinking Big.
What is the difference between a “genius” and a failure? Why do “bright” people got to work for Monsanto and produce dangerous toxic genetic monstrosities without concern? Why do men with 150 point IQ’s sometimes drive dump trucks, if anyone will hire them? Read on and see if you can solve this riddle.
Where Are “You”? If you believe that ‘YOU’ are the product of your brain and are located somewhere in your head, you are buying into the fantasy that the Church Of Science has invented to detract from the “illogical” religious belief that you are a spiritual being and part of the Eternal God or Spinoza’s Cosmic Consciousness (whichever you prefer). Now I am not an advocate of practicing religion nor do I believe that any form of religion is “righter” than others. I do however believe that your brain is not you but a transceiver to where your real you exists. When you look at the creative insights of many of the world’s “best minds,’ minds that have changed history by changing our paradigm of the world, you will often find that their discoveries were made when not thinking but merely relaxing, walking or playing. Why is this? People say it is the creative insight of their “sub conscious” mind solving problems for them. For this sentence to make sense we have to invent the “sub conscious” mind, for which we have never established any physical organ. It makes far more sense to picture capturing the solution from the infinite cosmic mind by a process described by the the Rosicrucians and handed down for centuries by those who belong to mystical societies of the thinkers. These men and women have turned out to be the doers, movers and sharkers who have changed history.
So why does a high IQ make you stupid? It does not truly make you stupid but it can significantly detract your from your true creative capabilities. Being able to “learn” fast whether it is to solve puzzles or recall data is likely a sign of an intense and focused mind; but, I believe calling it “genius” and making countless others “average” by comparison, was created by professorial people to help them with their inferiority complexes! When you hypnotize any mentally capable person, you can make them recall and solve problems (Learn) far faster than “average” people. I was once taught to master the skill of Karate and split a large 3/4 inch thick board of wood in a 45 minute hypnosis session (as were a couple hundred others in Marshall Sylver’s audience. The next day we learned to put out flaming torches in our mouth without fear! I am sure there is more to IQ than just good focus but to equate it with being in some way with productive value to humanity is, I believe, false. If you read the book, Outliers, you will learn the success story behind great Canadian hockey players. It is the same story behind the “productive” value of high IQ children. In a quick two second synopsis, “Outliers” really teaches us that those that those whom you lavish praise, attention and training upon, will likely produce results!
It is my contention that people who live in their mind and are myopic “geniuses” or “average” people who choose not to succeed creatively because cultural conditioning has made them believe they are too “average” to accomplish anything great waste their lives for the same reason, they are out of touch with the cosmic which is wear we all really reside. What makes us believe these illusions of our “Limited Self?” Consider TV, for example, or School teacher and college professors who have the superiority complex that crushes average people into paying homage to their genius and self demoting themselves to relative idiocy.
Plants Have Telepathy, Why Not You? In reading The Source Field Investigations, by David Wilcox, you can see how research is proving the existence of a communication connection between all living matter and even likely what we think of as inert matter, such as Earth and stone. If this is true, are we not connected to everything? The pineal gland has been shown to be formed much like an eye and sensitive to photons (light). For centuries its form has been central to many religious teachings as a source of insight. Unlike the subconscious mind that has no anatomical existence, it is more and more likely that the pineal gland, at the center of your brain, is connected with some sort of perception. If so it may be the third eye that is depicted in many religious and metaphysical drawings, your connection to the infinite.
So how does a High IQ make you “stupid?” The answer, I believe, is that societies subliminal messages to both hi IQ and Average people is depressive to true genius, genius that creates with the infinite source we often call the Muse. Genius which I equate with the Cosmic Consciousness, or our “real self” has been named for centuries as the connection with the infinite. Musicians get out of its way by the hypnotic practice of music, creative geniuses like Einstein take walks or make discoveries on trolley rides. When your mundane consciousness is not stealing your attention, the infinite becomes awake within! Why do so many great teachers say “find God within?” Like Elisabeth Haich in her book, INITIATION, I cannot fathom that a mote of dust with wings too small to see and a nearly undetectable brain, can find food, eat, sleep, find mates, reproduce, fight off attackers and do all this while flying in 3 dimensional space because of its brain power (a microscopic spec within a mote of dust). I have flown and airplane twice, it is just not that simple. To believe we are in our heads, is to bow down to the Idol of science and I bow down to no idols. How about you?
