You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession


The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.


Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

bilbo "hicks" - Defining moonbat, political satirist, conspiracy theorist turned brilliant comedian, no holds barred, no one gets out without passing under the microscope of his derision and I want the most for my bum-quarter, where were you when I was edging? It's odd that I don't really know anyone else besides [livejournal.com profile] rubygloomrox and ScottyBoy who really even knew about him, or was privy to his genius. Of course by the time I find him he's already gone. . . We spent many a night around the hobo campfire twistin' em up and gut-laughing at the shit this guy'd come up with until we thought we'd die.

extinctions - God looked down on Her creation with a heavy sigh. A world of incredible complexity and stunning beauty that was, to Her, no more than a doodle on a Etch-e-sketch is to us and said, "And I thought the dinosaurs were crude. . . It's time once again for an new paradigm." Don't believe that it can't happen to us.

parenting - I was a reluctant father, selfish to the core, I could not stand having my life's situation interrupted for this intrepid little soul to force her way into it, shattering all my expectations of the future and ideas of identity. So, for the last nine years I've been diligently remaking myself in the image of someone stronger, bolder, smarter and more compassionate, for I am part of something now much larger and more special - if not a family then, at least, a pack. I've still got a lot to learn so any advice is much appreciated.

the big crunch - Theory has it that the "Big Bang" is that point in the space time continuum where matter and energy expand into what we know as our reality. Why, then should it not re-condense? Everything else is cycles: As above, so below.

hunting and gathering - The story of Cane and Able is the story of the agricultural revolution and the violence it has begotten, as agricultural societies throughout history have had to usurp more and more space to spread their burgeoning numbers. For 3 million years humans and our ancestors lived in near perfect accord with nature. Fossil records are yielding strong evidence that through agriculture and industrialization we're are only recently beginning to enjoy the same standards of health, longevity, and prosperity that our ancestors did; and all it cost us was our freedom from tyranny, endless warfare, disease, starvation, and class systems. The division of labor and the resultant wealth, instead of being balanced equitably upon the time of each and every individual of a society, is now divided among classes of individuals; wherein those who carry the majority of the burden of creating wealth enjoy considerably less of it than those who have appointed themselves to "manage" it. Some have even gone as far as to say that the agricultural revolution was the worst mistake in human history. Ask me why I hate art. . .

cato - Libertarian think-tank. Sort of out-dated as a interest. We still need, at least, a strong 3rd political party in the United States, and libertarians are as close as I can come to the more conservative values I adopted from my father when I was young. These days I'm really more of "green" but I don't think they have what it takes to balance the Dem's spineless, lowest-common-denominator, issues-not-values driven policy, with the Repug-nican's authoritarian, greed, ego and self-indulgent reign of violence, mis-information, and blatant stupidity. Not that I have all the answers, I'm just sayin'. . .

cow-punk - Not that I advocate subscribing to any particular identity or subculture, but I live in a small country town in Appalachia now, and I dig it! But that doesn't mean i's time to slow down. There's a lot of really tasty music out there that just happens to feature a lot of banjos, dobros, mandolins and a fiddle or two. Hee-yulck!

This is a variation of the letter meme where you comment and I'll give you a letter and then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter.

Life: Although sometimes I hate it, as much as it often doesn't meet my expectations, it's the most difficult medium I've ever tried to create art from and, when compared to the qualities of others, it seems that I do it with less flair and efficacy, like I'm missing something really important; but I love life.

Liberty: It is my sunshine, my only sunshine. It makes me happy when skies are grey. It is a basic right ensured by the constitution. Please, Mr. President, don't take my sunshine away.

Ladies: Soon I'll be married and will have forsaken all others. but I will always love the ladies.

Lullabies: Simple, soothing, and calming. They are the medicine of music. I'm never not in the mood for a lullaby.

Leisure time: Especially when it's my own, I'm willing to overlook the illusion.

Learning: The single biggest point of our lives; if you're not actively engaged then you're probably better off dead.

Lust: (see - Ladies) Because 'Sex' starts with an S. . .

Laughter: It relieves the tension of just being alive. Go on, show me something funny. . .

Libraries: This is the coolest thing "civilized society" has to offer. They give books away as long as you promise to bring them back!

Love: As inexplicable as gravity, and probably as damaging, it is the binding force of the universe. A teaspoon of the former and Love make the world go 'round. "Acceptance", the antithesis of fear. I love Love itself.

You are 70% knowledgable and 72% intellectual.
You'd do well for yourself in life but we have institutions of 'higher learning' in place to ensure that that only happens for some of us. Sorry, the economy just won't support that many little geniuses running around. Sucks for you there's no such thing as 'common sense' anymore. Stupid is as stupid does on tests. Don't forget it, loser!

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one (I currently have 118). If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them here, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.

I'm glad I check these things from time to time . . .

I am:
49%
Republican.
"Congratulations, you're a swing voter. When they say 'Soccer Mom', they mean you. Every Democratic ad on the TV set was made just for your viewing enjoyment. Don't you feel special?"

Are You A Republican?


Sure, I feel special - I don't even own a TV . . . or an SUV. But I will vote for the best man (or woman) for the job, or at the very least, for the one that I think is capable of wreaking the least havoc in the world in the name of the U.S.A.

It only goes to show that you really can't believe everything you read on the internet (or 49% of what I write there! )

From [livejournal.com profile] gadarene. (And [livejournal.com profile] stevendj, who pointed out that attributing the source is not part of the instructions.)
Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 23.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the text of the sentence in your journal...


. . . along with these instructions.



'But it would be a mistake to think that, without these genes, humans would be chimpanzees - or that, with these genes, chimpanzees would be humans.'



. . . this particular book, a mere page earlier, explains a little about memes themselves when it says says that '. . . memes are to cultures what genes are to bodies.' Sorry to deviate from the instructions, just thought you online meme-junkies would appreciate that
