Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

God and fear and darwin and light and discernment, and a lens

March26

I’ll leverage my recent post: it’s the rule if not the Law as my inspired preamble for this particular post. And, of course a historical archive of prior thoughts with which you are likely familiar (if not particularly fond of), as well.

To wit…

I’m confident God inspired Darwin, and discernment – in one formed result, or another, proves their collaborative point.

Our recognition of God was born of an ultimate fear – and, realized, always, in our DNA. The application of using fear as a tool for survival is a further demonstration of Darwin’s views – depending on the quaility of light and the requisite lens.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

the secret series: in pursuit of They

March16

We may, and finally, have a clue as to whom “they” are. “They”, of course, being that shadowy and uncertain collective that is assigned, or assigns, every uncertain dictum.

We know they are part of “the plan”. We don’t know if the plan is managed, if you will, by the “smoking rabbit”, or that damn black dog with a pipe.

We are unclear if they and the plan can be defined under “good” or “evil”. We don’t know if this is the final stage set for the epic battle promised around “good vs. evil”.

We understand it involves a “secret”. And, the secret is also the “key” to, well, “everything” (often referred to by thirteen year olds as the obvious).

But, this is what we’ve uncovered – a (potentially) significant clue that has us all rather excited – and, worked-up:

Featured Article | SCP-055 – (unknown)

“The self-keeping secret. Nobody knows what it is, nobody knows what it does. Anyone who sees it forgets about it entirely in the space of minutes. It may have killed hundreds of people, or it may have been placed by an outside force to invisibly monitor the Foundation or humanity…. and nobody would know.”

Look for the full article, based on our joint research, to be revealed by the end of the week. That is of course, if we can remember to do so. Or, survive what is likely to be an imminent attack from “them”.

NOTE: More about this later, we hope.

Don’t be unnerved. Be aware. Or, perhaps just Beware. It’s what you don’t see that can kill you.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

furious resolve if not Survival

December10

Of course it was Rusty Linquist that had to get me thinking.

I felt like I had no other choice but to offer the following (you’ll need to venture back towards yesterdays post and explore the comments if there’s a hope you’ll understand what this means):

I’ll ponder if the greater risk comes in not taking the action to prepare for the summit, overcome my fear, and achieve a milestone shared with few others that breathe all manner of “rare air”.

The demise element takes it’s pivotal form in whether it happens as a surprise, and less so an eventuality. So, I must train my body and prepare my mind to blend courage, furious resolve,/1 and planning into a best option – survival.

I love the development behind the potential that Raison d’etre represents. So, much promise reflected in an ever broadening sea of opportunity. It’s like the subjective meaning(s) attributed to Gare du Nord – another French play on words. It’s both a place (that takes people to other destinations) while also serving as a kind of battle cry /2 for a warrior code that may longer exist in that evolving culture (the French Foreign Legion in Africa facing Muslim hordes). God… the irony. And, the lessons to be learned over what might define heroism, and a reconciliation with my own soul.

Thanks for chipping in Rusty.

1/ If I ever own another boat, I’ll name her Furious Resolve. And, by God, I’ll sail her around the word, nestled in her womb while raising my arms (and often) to (again) God and all His elements!

2/ “We make our stand here!”

hurry up and Wait

May13

So…

There have been a few dramatic periods in my life when Subject Matter Experts, that happened to be examples on survival, instructed me:

“Don’t rush in.”

Certainly lessons learned as a Firefighter in Colorado still haunt my dreams (and, those adventures often represent great metaphors for business). But, when you stop and think about those words their broad application are too numerous to even bother expounding over. However, you can come up with all manner of imagery in terms of the furious words: fire fight.

War, fires, business.

And, better yet, how to avoid them.

Just pause and come up with your own opportunities not to become an example of negative selection (this phrase is not, necessarily, Darwinian in principle – just look it up).

Relevant or not, when in doubt, and you find yourself flailing about, just go with

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
