Son look at the people lining up for plastic, Wouldn't you like to see them in the national geographic?

Today I rolled back in time to a posting many moons ago. I'd have to say there was a tension that evening, a tension that still holds true 3 years, one that motivates and inspires, yet drains.

The word of the day is stymie. Life is full of it, endeavors, one idea vs. the next, and defining the overlap in complicated situation, in heart, job, body or other pillars is increasingly difficult the more you grind against it.

Gatekeeper vs. Keymaster in life -- An interesting question. First thoughts lead me down a path of how different social structures lend themselves to others, generally speaking, people in the same professions seem to take care of each other, money lends itself to money, and cartels work to align their visions. Both have gummed up society unbelievably, for as in today's mesh networks, many people hold the keys, and gates can be bypassed.

There are always alternate routes, and if there no designs or flaws to find, what purpose do these functions play other than creating gangs of 'haves and have nots. As society devolves, what value does anything have, and what's all the hub-bub rat race all about?

Perhaps it is a metaphor for life, but just as any, definition lies on different variables, especially your current mood. I've taken the dreaded true colors test and Jung personality type tests and based on how I'm feeling at the moment is how the results play out.

We are the keymaster to our own lives, gatekeeps are twarted by the masses, or intuition, intuition which is given to certain people who can tap into certain currents. I'd say there are some currents that are still well kept secrets, which most people don't know about, even few care when they know, some of these folks want the keys or to cross the gate but dont have what it takes, and the special few are the ones that hop on the boat and go with Frodo and Sam.

Numbers stack like this

1,000,000 = dont know
100,000 = know but dont care or choose a different fight to fight
1,000 = 'want in'
10 = have the keys to the kingdom, or the vip band that makes the gatekeeper move out the way

Are gates and keys good or bad? My first inclinations were bad, for it seems to me there's sort o a beaurocratic step in a process of going from A to B. The more I think about it, gates and keys serve typical human nature by guarding what it is that 'needs to be' guarded.

Through a process and journey, usually through much hardship and self enrichment, you can break on through to the other side.
