Looking Back

It was barely 6 months since I left Hawaii to the mainland-- before threats from my hometown drove me back to Ithaca, where AREAL was conceived in my apartment in the 1993/94. This time, uncertain what to do, I took a stroll to see how campus changed. And, with some tweets, made a few banners for cybertorture campaigners and mailed them cross country. All before the UN mandated national laws to prevent cybertorture. 
Today, I received a notice of  how many views my Google Guide account has achieved. So, this glimpse of impressions is a small blessing today. I thought I would share it. And the blueberry farm pics too...

The Impact of Cyber Techniques on Vaccines: A High School-Level Explanation

In recent times, there have been discussions about a unique kind of vaccine that some people believe could have tiny devices inside, acting like a Wi-Fi receiver. These claims suggest that these vaccines might change people in significant ways.

Let's imagine a scenario to understand this better:

Imagine a new type of vaccine being talked about. People are worried that it contains small devices that can connect to Wi-Fi signals. But, wait! How does this affect hospitals and war zones?

In a time of war, hospitals are places where people go to get better. They need to be safe from anything that could be used for combat, like cyber technology. If a vaccine has these tiny devices, it might make a person carrying them look like a combatant, someone involved in the fighting. This could lead to confusion and danger.

So, to keep hospitals and schools safe and focused on helping people, it might be important to have separate places for those who got this new vaccine. These spaces would be for people to go to if they need medical attention, but it ensures that the places meant for healing and learning are kept free from potential cyber-technological concerns.

Remember, everyone's health is crucial, and hospitals should be a safe haven during challenging times. This scenario helps us think about how technology can affect where we seek help and safety.

Embracing diverse spirituality

Subject: Embracing Diversity and My Spiritual Journey

Dear Friends,

I wanted to share a glimpse of my spiritual journey and the diverse experiences I've been fortunate enough to have embraced. From my upbringing in a mixed-faith family - with a Japanese Buddhist and Shinto parent and a US Catholic parent - to my exploration of various beliefs and practices, my path has been shaped by a deep appreciation for diversity and understanding.

I've attended various religious services and explored different faiths, finding resonance and wisdom in each. From Buddhist practices to various Christian churches including interfaith, from Hindu ceremonies to Jewish celebrations, and even engaging with cross-cultural international and also Japan based healing groups, and listening to those with firm beliefs in nature rituals;- each experience has enriched my understanding of the world.

My journey has led me to embrace a more Buddhist-centered path, aligning with shojin ryori as my path was intended and a vegan lifestyle since USA and EU disrespected my Japanese national descent since my childhood. I believe in fostering compassion, understanding, and respect for all living beings and the world we share.

Through this, I hope we can cultivate an environment where our differences are celebrated, and understanding and love prevail. Let's support one another in our unique spiritual paths, recognizing that our individual journeys contribute to a more colorful and compassionate world.

In unity and respect for diversity,

Angela "Kikuchi" Kneale
