Lyrics: Tool - Forty-Six & 2

Tool Forty-Six & 2 Song Lyrics



My shadow's
Shedding skin and
I've been picking
Scabs again.
I'm down
Digging through
My old muscles
Looking for a clue.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own confused
And insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
Or a word to guide me in.
I wanna feel the changes coming down.
I wanna know what I've been hiding in

My shadow.
Change is coming through my shadow.
My shadow's shedding skin
I've been picking
My scabs again.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own chaotic
And insecure delusions.

I wanna feel the change consume me,
Feel the outside turning in.
I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
Cleansing I've endured within

My shadow
Change is coming.
Now is my time.
Listen to my muscle memory.
Contemplate what I've been clinging to.
Forty-six and two ahead of me.

I choose to live and to
Grow, take and give and to
Move, learn and love and to
Cry, kill and die and to
Be paranoid and to
Lie, hate and fear and to
Do what it takes to move through.

I choose to live and to
Lie, kill and give and to
Die, learn and love and to
Do what it takes to step through.

See my shadow changing,
Stretching up and over me.
Soften this old armor.
Hoping I can clear the way
By stepping through my shadow,
Coming out the other side.
Step into the shadow.
Forty six and two are just ahead of me.

A Note About the Lyrics:

The title references an idea first conceived by Carl Jung and later expounded upon by Drunvalo Melchizedek concerning the possibility of reaching a state of evolution at which the body would have two more than the normal 46 total chromosomes and leave a currently disharmonious state.  The premise is that humans would deviate from the current state of human DNA which contains 44 autosomes and 2 sex chromosomes. The next step of evolution would likely result in human DNA being reorganized into 46 and 2 chromosomes, according to Melchizedek. The song references a wish to experience change through the "shadow"; an idea which represents the parts of one's identity that one hates, fears, and represses, this exists as a recurring theme in the work of Carl Jung.

A look at the word Numismatic

Obscure Finds Numismatic Coin Collection  



Obscure Finds Coin Collection (OFCC) has created a new way to look at coins on the internet including a responsive design that helps user that are on the ever growing popular mobile devices.

The OFCC has approached this project with some simple ideas.
- document with trusted sources coins that are/was in our collection
- learn more about coin collecting and numismatic methods

During the process the OFCC has created the website located at http://coin.obscurefinds.com.
Sometime between the design process and schema creation, a side project was created and segregated. This project is known as the Numismatic Coin Collection Database (NCCD) more information about the intentions of this project will come in the next few months.

Below we look at the word Numismatic


Numismatics
Source: en.wikipedia.org

Numismatics is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects. While numismatists are often characterized as students or collectors of coins, the discipline also includes the broader study of money and other payment media used to resolve debts and the exchange of goods. Early money used by people is referred to as "Odd and Curious", but the use of other goods in barter exchange is excluded, even where used as a circulating currency (e.g., cigarettes in prison). The Kyrgyz people used horses as the principal currency unit and gave small change in lambskins;[1] the lambskins may be suitable for numismatic study, but the horse is not. Many objects have been used for centuries, such as cowry shells, precious metals, and gems.

Today, most transactions take place by a form of payment with either inherent, standardized, or credit value. Numismatic value may be used to refer to the value in excess of the monetary value conferred by law, which is known as the "collector value."

Economic and historical studies of money's use and development are an integral part of the numismatists' study of money's physical embodiment.

Modern numismatics

Modern numismatics is the study of the coins of the mid-17th century onward, the period of machine struck coins. Their study serves more the need of collectors than historians and it is more often successfully pursued by amateur aficionados than by professional scholars. The focus of modern numismatics lies frequently in the research of production and use of money in historical contexts using mint or other records in order to determine the relative rarity of the coins they study. Varieties, mint-made errors, the results of progressive die wear, mintage figures and even the sociopolitical context of coin mintings are also matters of interest.

1965-1966 - Elizabeth II - Canadian Silver Dollar

The Royal Canadian Mint issued the first silver dollar in 1935 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V. The coin’s reverse design was sculpted by Emanuel Hahn and portrays a voyageur and an aboriginal paddling a birch-bark canoe. The faint lines in the background represent the Northern Lights. The voyageur design was used on the dollar until 1986. It was then replaced with the 1987 Canadian 1 dollar coin (Loonie). 1967 marked the end of the silver dollar as a business strike, or a coin issued for circulation. After 1967, the dollar coin was made of nickel, except for non-circulating commemorative issues for the collector market, which continue to contain silver.

Codex Gigas a.k.a the Devils Bible

Codex Gigas 

Codex_Gigas_aka_The_Devils_Bible--Binding-2
Codex Gigas Binding [1]
Codex Gigas also known as the "Devils Bible" is the largest medieval manuscript in the world. It is bound in a wooden folder covered with leather and ornate metal. A very large book at 36 in. tall, 19.7 in. wide and 8.6 in. thick. Weighing 165 lb, Codex Gigas is composed of 310 leaves of vellum allegedly made from the skins of 160 donkeys or perhaps calfskin. It initially contained 320 sheets, though some of these were subsequently removed. It is unknown who removed the pages or for what purpose but it seems likely that they contained the monastic rules of the Benedictines.

I want to go over the reason the book is referred to as the Devils Bible, but first lets look at its real name "Codex Gigas" which translates to simply mean "Giant Book". The Devils Bible nickname comes from two main reason, the popular full page portrait of the devil and that it contains pages with full and very dark demoniac exorcisms and conjurations.

The First reason the Codex Gigas has the nickname "the Devils Bible" is the page (f. 290r) that is a depiction of the devil, which is unusual in manuscript from anytime, in that it shows him alone and occupying a whole page.  Below are two images of the Devils page.


Devils Page - Stereoscopic picture dated 1906 [4]


Codex_Gigas_aka_The_Devils_Bible--devils portrait
Devil Portrait (f. 290r) [2]
The National Library of Sweden describes the images above as: 
The portrait of the Devil is the most famous image in the Codex Gigas (f. 290r), and it is the cause of the the book’s nickname, the Devil’s Bible. The Devil is shown alone, in an empty landscape, within a frame formed by two large towers. He is crouching with his arms held up (he has only four fingers and toes) and wears an ermine loin cloth. Ermine is usually associated with royalty, and its use here is to emphasize the position of the Devil as the prince of darkness. 
The portrait was intended to remind the viewer of sin and evil. It is opposite a page with a representation of the Heavenly City and the two pages were deliberately planned to show the advantages of a good life and the disadvantages of a bad one. [3]




The Second reason the Codex Gigas has the nickname "the Devils Bible" is that it contains a section on conjurations and demoniac exorcisms. It is interesting and noteworthy to mention that this is very unusual in a manuscript that also contains versions of books from the more well known Bible. Below is an image of the page that follows the Devils page and starts the section containing the demoniac exorcisms.


Codex_Gigas_Conjurations_and_demonic_exorcisms
Conjurations and Demonic Exorcisms [5]
The National Library of Sweden Describes this section as: 
In Codex Gigas, the spread showing the Heavenly Jerusalem and the Devil is followed by three conjurations and two magic spells (ff. 290v-291r). Possibly these are intended as protection from, and a counterpoint to, the picture of the Devil on the preceding page. The text is written in large characters on a coloured background, just like the confession of sins preceding the pictorial spread. 
The first conjuration is against sudden illnesses, and in it evil is addressed in the magic words puton, purpuron, diranx, celmagis, metton, ardon, lardon, asson and catulon, with accompanying signs of the Cross. The next two conjurations are against feverish states. One of them apostrophises the seven evil sisters of Satan. They are to be expelled from a ‘servant of God’ through the invocation of various events in the life of Christ, as well as angels, the Holy Virgin, John the Baptist, the Evangelists, the Apostles, the prophets and various saints. 
In the second formula the evil one, bloodthirsty Dino, who has 150 talons, is adjured and commanded not to harm his victim but to ‘sleep like a yearling lamb’. Two of the magic spells concern theft. This type is known from both Jewish and Christian magic. One prescribes how to catch a thief with the aid of a medium – ‘a virgin unblemished youth’. His nails are to be anointed with thirteen drops of oil and he will then espy the thief in the glistening oil. The other informs us that, in order to see in a dream ‘the theft which has happened’, one must hold a letter in one’s left hand, invoke God by His holy name, as well as the archangels, and conjure the evil spirits to go home and sleep. [6]


We have covered what the Codex Gigas physically is and why its called the Devils Bible, but this is far from the end of the question of, what is the Codex Gigas? Some of the immediate questions that arise are:



What does Codex Gigas have in it:

About half of the codex consists of the entire Latin Bible in the Vulgate version, except for the books of Acts and Revelation, which are from a pre-Vulgate version. They are in the order: Genesis-Ruth; Isaiah-Daniel; Hosea-Malachi; Job; Samuel and Kings; Psalms-Song of Solomon; Wisdom of Solomon; Wisdom of Jesus; Esdras; Tobit; Judith; Esther; and Maccabees. Between the Testaments are Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews and De bello iudaico, as well as Isidore of Seville's encyclopedia Etymologiae and medical works of Hippocrates, Theophilus, Philaretus, and Constantinus. Following a blank page, the New Testament commences with Matthew-Acts, James-Revelation, and Romans-Hebrews. Following the picture of the devil, Cosmas of Prague's Chronicle of Bohemia, a list of brothers in the Podlažice monastery, and a calendar with necrologium, magic formulae and other local records round out the codex. The entire document is written in Latin, in addition, it contains Hebrew, Greek, and Slavic alphabets (Cyrillic and Glagolitic). [7]



What is the Vulgate version (the Latin Bible):

The Vulgate is a late fourth-century Latin translation of the Bible that became, during the 16th century, the Catholic Church's officially promulgated Latin version of the Bible. The translation was largely the work of St. Jerome, who, in 382, was commissioned by Pope Damasus I to revise the Vetus Latina ("Old Latin") collection of Biblical texts in Latin then in use by the Church. Once published, it was widely adopted and eventually eclipsed the Vetus Latina and, by the 13th century, was known as the "versio vulgata" (the "version commonly-used") or, more simply, in Latin as vulgata or in Greek as βουλγάτα ("Vulgate"). It was made the Catholic Church's official Latin Bible as a consequence of the Council of Trent (1545–63). [8]



Who and When was the Codex Gigas Wrote:

The codex is believed to have been created by Herman the Recluse in the Benedictine monastery of Podlažice near Chrudim in the Czech Republic. The monastery was destroyed during the 15th century during the Hussite Revolution. Records in the codex end in the year 1229. The codex was later pledged to the Cistercians Sedlec Monastery and then bought by the Benedictine monastery in Břevnov. From 1477 to 1593, it was kept in the library of a monastery in Broumov until it was taken to Prague in 1594 to form a part of the collections of the Emperor Rudolf II. A National Geographic documentary included interviews with manuscript experts who pointed towards evidence (handwriting analysis and a credit to hermann inclusus – "herman the recluse") that indicates the manuscript was the work of just one scribe. [9]
According to one version of a legend that was already recorded in the Middle Ages, the scribe was a monk who broke his monastic vows and was sentenced to be walled up alive. In order to forbear this harsh penalty he promised to create in one single night a book to glorify the monastery forever, including all human knowledge. Near midnight he became sure that he could not complete this task alone, so he made a special prayer, not addressed to God but to the fallen angel Lucifer, asking him to help him finish the book in exchange for his soul. The devil completed the manuscript and the monk added the devil's picture out of gratitude for his aid. In tests to recreate the work, it is estimated that reproducing only the calligraphy, without the illustrations or embellishments, would have taken 5 years of non-stop writing. [10]

10 Funny Halloween Costumes For Babies

TSU a new Social Network


New social network Tsu launched with little fanfare on October 14. The social network has had a cash injection of $7 million from Sancus Capital Prive and other investors before launch.



The company was founded in 2013 by tech entrepreneurs Sebastian Sobczak, Drew Ginsburg, Thibault Boullenger, and Jonathan Lewin.

Tsu differentiates itself from Facebook and newcomer Ello because it aims to reward its users. It displays ads and promises to pay its users for contributing and sharing original content.

It also is not precious about who joins its network. If you have a short code, you can join. If you know someone else’s short code (mine is @mindlock) you can create your own account on the network.

So what does this mean for business influencers and brands? Tsu keeps 10 percent of the revenue it earns from its ads. It gives the other 90 percent to its content creators and the people that share posts.

If you are social and share quality posts you will get paid cash. Tsu works with organic reach. It rewards influencers who publish content and who have lots of friends.

It is a bit like the MLM concept of pyramid selling, However Tsu is all about content. Tsu’s algorithm automatically tracks, measures, and distributes revenue to the appropriate user and their family tree of children and grandchildren.

The network wants you to create your own network and control it. It also wants you to receive revenue for the original content you own and post.

Its a very cool way of sharing revenue – surely something that other companies might be interested in copying.

Tsu wants its users to be able to monetise all of their content through sharing. According to Billboard, Tsu founder Sebastian Sobczak says: “Why should anyone commercially benefit from someone else’s image, likeness and work giving no financial return to the owner?”

Will Tsu provide its users with the features that other networks cannot? It certainly seems to have enjoyed significant buzz just one week after launch. Ello, which shot into the news the other week, appears to be slipping in its popularity if Google searches are anything to go by.

Most users who share and like content will not see their Tsu revenue increase by more than a few cents. But brands that produce awe inspiring, buzzy, great content will reap the rewards as their content ripples across the web.

Some users and influencers will make a lot of money. Brands might be able to justify some of their marketing investment. Most users — who only click to like and share — might find that Tsu is not the super platform they hoped it would be.

But for those who take the time to produce well-crafted, original content, this might be the platform they have been looking for. I will certainly shift my focus away from Facebook to give Tsu some quality social time.

Lyrics: Logic - Under Pressure

Logic Under Pressure Song Lyrics 

Logic Under Pressure Song Lyrics
Logic - Under Pressure


"Under Presure" 

Work so fucking much, my greatest fear is Imma die alone
Every diamond in my chain, yeah, that's a milestone
People calling me, asking me for money, man
The only thing Imma give you motherfuckers is the dial tone

Flashbacks of a youngin' sipping that purple Kool Aid
Skipping school with my homies and chiefing reefer for two days
Running from the law, living how I'm living, fuck 'em all
Bumping Triple Six
Hennessy in my cup, driving through the sticks
Who the bitch, riding with me?
Man, the devil tryna get me
Motivated, undereducated, and hated
But finally getting cake like a happy belated
Bitch I made it, we on
Buy it, break it, roll it, light it, smoke it, inhale it, 
write it, record it, mix it, master it, press it up, unveil it
Feel like I've been waiting forever, forever to inherit
This is war, I declare it
Time is money, I can't spare it
Futuristic, so simplistic
Please decipher my linguistics
Slow it down, Robitussin
I'm the king, ain't no discussion
And now we blowing up like spontaneous human combustion
My consumption is the illest
Section eight, I know you feel this
On the come up, where they run up on you for nothing at all
Brighter than eleven suns, this the first, where my funds?
EBT, that's the card
I thank God, I thank God, but it's hard, but it's hard

Work so fucking much, my greatest fear is Imma die alone
Every diamond in my chain, yeah, that's a milestone
People calling me, asking me for money, man
The only thing Imma give you motherfuckers is the dial tone

God damn, god damn, we at it again
Me and my homies that know me blowing up like the Taliban
Yeah, my stress up, but I'm blessed up
Fuck around and get messed up
When I murder the rhyme, I'm living divine
You know that I'm one of a kind
Lemme get it right now, ho
Draped up and I'm dripped out
Right now, ho
Caked up 'til I cash out
And I got em all wondering how, so
On the down low, haters drown slow
On the down low, haters drown slow
Oh God, my God, we got it all right
Oh God, my God, we gotta get it right
These fuckers facades, they just a mirage, right?
I said these fuckers facades, they just a mirage, right?
Tell me that they love me, know damn well that they don't give a fuck
I be on that finger flipping killing shit up in the cut, that's what's up
All these bitches out here tryna gas it up
This is everything I ever wanted, I can't pass it up
Life changed in a year, couldn't happen fast enough
"Can I do it like you do it?" That's what they be asking us
White benz, black card, bitch better get your plastic up
Man, this shit is hella hard, but we never acting up
Live it up, hold on to your dream, don't ever give it up
Finally had my share of success, and shit, I can't get enough
Now they know my name through the nation
Cause my single like that good shit, man, always in rotation
Now they know Logic for Logic, not through my affiliations
Stacking profit on profit, from this music I'm making
Even Jesus had haters, so when you feeling forsaken
Tell 'em jealous Judas is who this is, and man, that'll break 'em
And Bitch I'm still the same
Dash of auto tune so y'all can feel the pain
Broke as fuck, back in that basement, not a dollar to my name
Chasing fame, chasing glory, 'til the day we make a story
Positive that life ain't mine, bitch you can take that shit to Maury

Work so fucking much, my greatest fear is Imma die alone
Every diamond in my chain, yeah, that's a milestone
People calling me, asking me for money, man
The only thing Imma give you motherfuckers is the dial tone

When I see kids around the way I say how I'm your dad
It gets me think about incredible moments we've had
and on the real I'm trying so hard not to bug you
But do you think you could stop rapping about my drug use
I'm two years clean, no longer a phene ,  yeah
I'm 57 but I feel 19 and I love you I swear
Bobby, I know your there 
and when the time is right I know that your going to take care 
of any thing I need,  of your family
Can I have some tickets to your next show will you stand with me 
can I have some money for my new honey thats hella fine
I forgot to tell you I got divorced from your step mom
My mind going crazy but I still look hella calm

Maybe you could tell 

[Beep]

I've been feeling under pressure

[Phone message...]

Dear family Im so sorry that I've been distant
Everything changed in an instance
My times been has been inconsistent
I know that you've been insistent
I know that birthday, I missed it
I swore I told my assistant
But I guess my mind is in another place
thoughts off in another world
I started seeing another girl
it feel through man,  What a world
but I'm so focus on my craft
unemploying my staffed
such a perfectionist
I can't even finish this draft
this letter to the ones I loved the ones I miss
brothers and sisters that hit me up just to reminisce 
meanwhile, people outside of my blood
asking for favors, I don't owe you a fucking thing!
You best switch your behavior. Truly remarkable how
I barley know you, but somehow owe you
and you don't even know about the shit I go through
we anit spoken in a while tell me sister how your child
come now girl give me a smile 
come on girl don't do me foul
sorry, I ain't called before but I'm calling you right now
I heard you were popping E stop resorting the the vowel
how my mommy how she doing does she know what I'm pursuing
I aint talked to her in years that relationship she ruined
But sometimes I wake up and wonder just what the fuck I'm doing
they say that family is everything I swear that shit the truth
I should spend it all with y'all but I spend it in the booth
This is everything I love this is everything I need
never sacrifice this feeling even though my heart bleed
This is everything I love this is everything I need 
never sacrifice this feeling even though my heart bleed

under pressure

I've been feeling under pressure

Lyrics: Seether - Words As Weapons

Seether Words As Weapons Song Lyrics


"Words As Weapons"


All I really want is something beautiful to say

Keep me locked up in your broken mind
I keep searching, never been able
To find a light behind your dead eyes
Not anything at all

You keep living in your own lie
Ever deceitful and ever unfaithful
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
Take everything from my world

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

Keep me dumb, keep me paralyzed
Why try swimming? I'm drowning in fable
You're not that saint that you externalize
You're not anything at all

(All I really want is something beautiful to say)

It's all so playful when you demonize
To spit out the hateful, you're willing and able
Your words are weapons of the terrified
You're nothing in my world

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
You keep living in your own lie

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

You keep living in your own lie
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified

All I really want is something beautiful to say

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall?
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Words are weapons of the terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II 2013 Year of the Snake


In 2013, The Perth Mint's internationally renowned Australian Lunar Series II celebrates the Year of the Snake, the sixth auspicious animal in the Chinese zodiac.

The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar snake include 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be intelligent, graceful, independent, analytical and charming.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

The coin's high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

The reverse of the coin depicts a representation of a snake curled around a tree branch. The Chinese character for 'snake' and the inscription 'Year of the Snake' also appear in the design with The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

No more than 7,500 of these coins will be released.
