Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket

Noodle Brain Productions retrains people rendered stupid by the current economy to think outside of the box, regarding their quality of life issues around money, health, welfare and relationships. We feel that the current economy has wreaked havoc on our lives for too many hundreds of years and we want it to stop. We intend to create a critical mass to evolve us out of Catch-22 modes, and into activities that enliven and empower us.

Our government has a lot to answer for.


We prefer the press to be even more illogical and paradoxical in its findings so that we are finally alienated and forced to think and feel such that we can accept reality and participate in ways that bring about the experience and realizations of what is needed to resolve problems as they arise, including problems that appear to be political but are really economic.

I am sick of the duality of “good” vs “evil”, of “right” vs “wrong”. This simplistic splitting of our minds to form logical arguments to persuade us to choose sides and die for them duplicitously work to fulfill belongingness needs, to define our values, our beliefs, and to inspire murderous actions because we are trained Misologists who don’t know how to think and argue critically in ways that will allow true conviction to surface, and dysfunctional government practices to be revealed.

We fear being dropped out of a logical world that uses duality to propagate madness, to offer loyalties to insane people, and to invest in convoluted economic policies. This logic is a construct to keep industries in place that will kill any of us, industries that want to rebuild our lands. Halliburton would love to rebuild America.

To use religion as a hotbed for hatred and war is certainly not an act of Christianity…because Christianity is all about compassion and forgiveness, not eye for an eye duke outs. Yet America, professing to be Christian, perpetrates religious instigations to generate war footing. We got to get this paradox if we want this to end.

The place where EveryMan can see the truth and where problems can be resolved, handily, do not exist in a logical world constructed to keep unresolved dualities in place. In a paradoxical world, where truth is relative and all things exist in harmony and in conflict forever rubbing up against each other, generating a future, there exists an intelligence that deals with problems as they arise, predictably and unpredictably, with or without intention.

Argument, debate, reason and enlightenment are born out of the willingness to see truth as relative, to embrace the paradoxes of things to be both true and false at the same time, and to acknowledge that differences generate the problems our intelligence longs to resolve. Differences are our fodder for bonding, for arguing so that our convictions for resolutions can be discovered and known, and inside of the debate occurs the answer that enables trust to occur. Ethics (character, intelligence AND GOODWILL) make it possible. Passion ignites the possibilities, and logic brings paradox to bear so truth can be heard…

Accounting rules of commerce when honored enable international commerce to occur without conflict when understood as the ultimate zen of money. Things are positive and negative at the same time depending on your status as the receiver or the purchaser of goods and services. When we do commerce with respect, we do not need a CIA, or classified information to cover up duplicitous measures to steal another country’s Wealth and Resources. When are we going to wake up and enjoy our incredibly artful humanity? These war practices are so tired and costly. Let us dump them.

Wake up! Wake up!

A secular shout out to those of us who are not intellectuals and not stupid either!

Stay awake. Think for yourself. Get your Integrity Intact, if nothing else.  When your integrity is intact, you will develop trust for yourself first, and then learn to trust others.   As for how to get our country back on track, learn about Accounting!

In case you don't know it, our payroll and sales taxes and income taxes that we give up from our paychecks, our purchases, and our FICA and FTB taxes, Federal, State, and Medicare are paid to the government to provide us with services.

Our population seems to be distracted and forgot its civil duty to keep our rule of law and civility practices intact, vibrant and viable for everyone, at all times. We need a regulation called Glass-Steagall back in place, which keeps banks from raping the economy, and we need The Fairness Doctrine back in place to protect us from media that lies and supports fraud. With these regulations back in place, both sides have an opportunity to influence without obstruction. And we need our Food and Drug Administration to put back safety regulations that protect us from harm, and we need our unions back to save our wages, and we need our savings banks to pay interest of 14% so we can grow our own capital instead of relying on the greedy filthy rich to give us credit.

Can we collectively get on the same page and remove this disgusting group of criminals running our financial institutions, our local banks, our housing lenders, our food, our health care, our schools, and our government so we can get on with being once again a civilized nation under the rule of secular humanism? The inheritance of the humanities, the arts and the sciences belong to my children. Will someone recapture them, please?????

Let’s get out of this context! It is an embarrassment and we don’t want to pay for it anymore. We are not criminals, we are Americans with points of view that matter.
