Fall & Winter 2019

What source of truth can be trusted,
in case history is actually distorted and misleading?
If freewill enables dictators to confuse history,
which source, or what will-power can otherwise clarify truth?

My decades of searching for answers has finally found
a tenable source systematically above the human limitations:
Many thanks to this guidance for mankind,
which was humanly rejected so long ago
before modern concepts of time solidified,
(by ill-founded, self-indulgent lifestyles),
through "the self-serving will to power".

Finally in our time, the natural-evolutionary
"will to unity" can possibly become developed,
simply by sufficient attitude of humans overall,
Yet the internet of exchanging ideas has barely begun,
to sort through conscious facts and potential fictions,
because captivating art blocks views of higher knowledge.

I tested some poster art concepts below,
seeking to convey a decisive, attractive shift,
away from popular dedication to power trips.
My experimental use of colorful emotionality
confuses the higher mental thoughts with feelings,
mixing up the esoteric and exoteric distractingly,
missing my tested intent to transcend feeling.


Clear reasoning builds
new mental molecules,
useful for the now and
thriving all posterity.



These posters are based on my study of Pythagorean roots which were lost to the west, lost through the compromising flares in the west, which dazzled mentality with irresistible emotionality, (of physical life). These posters exercise my perception of H.T. Laurency's writings, by using smaller hints, through more common words of 2019.

I'm amazed at well-meant media, which forwards misinformation about the legacy of Pythagoras; therefore, I share some of my new found grasp, (which spotlight little publicized distinctions about the evolution of mankind and the lost roots of wisdom offered to the western world).

Past lives linger deeply,
tinting emotions,
unless rational thought
draws the lines of clarity.

Good people can be mislead, attempting to dismiss or to destroy lies, when they believe historically scrambled references, distorted through various conquests since ancient times, (where victors trashed libraries and edited everything in their narrow sight, where nobler efforts lagged behind the free will of indulgent emotions (rather than by mental consciousness development of the western world).

Over 90 per cent of what
man has taken in
is more or less fictitious.
The subconscious forgets nothing
that has passed through
waking consciousness.

Are we paying enough
attention to the essentials?

To motivate study of the pure subject matter see:.

Henry T. Laurency books, and also

the writings of Hylozoic Studies, by Lars Adelskogh.


I finally understand why the word "expedient" is often well used in the Laurency texts.

Oxford Dictionary Quote:
expedient /ɪkˈspi:dɪənt, ɛk-/ ▶ adjective (of an action) convenient and practical although possibly improper or immoral…

My cognition finally came while studying KL1_8 THE CONCEPTION OF RIGHT , which states:

"The terms “morality” and “ethics”, the true meaning of which nobody knows any longer, if anybody has ever understood it, should best be replaced by the word “conception of right”. That word has not yet been abused, with a confusion of ideas as a consequence, and so it may indicate what the matter is about. "

My cognition applies this statement, as the learned should struggle to attain "the level of culture”, by redirecting the English word usage of the words: “improper or immoral”, and therefore also to simplify and refocus the word "expedient" to mean specifically:
“adjective (of an action) convenient and practical”

I’m thankful for this critical correction which will likely develop gradually through common word usage, in ordinary life, because the word expedient is very useful, for ordinary life situations.

The key sentences are quoted below. The full references can be found in complete essays on the Laurency website, by good use of google, by searching key phrases (several consecutive words enclosed inside quotation marks). This method of google searching takes one directly to the PDF on the Laurency site.


9.10 Life Is Struggle
[page 10]

7 …The new tactic, “you should not criticize, you should not be negative”, etc., is a satanic trick to counteract the esoteric knowledge. How can you make people see through perversion when all the authorities of the day sing its praises in all keys? …

8 So criticism is not enough. You must use strong words so that you make people listen, something that can be heard above the noise and din of the satanists. …

9 Everyone who sees the necessity of fighting lies and hatred, stand up in the name of truth and swear off this cult of lies! The time has come to speak out and act, the time of silence and suffering under the satanist yoke is gone.

10 The planetary hierarchy has prepared for this revolution for the past five hundred years…

[page 30]

Still the occultists have not learnt the art of being silent, closely related to the insight as to what should be said. In any case you are wise to be silent if you do not know what is best to say.

17 The ability to be silent has nothing to do with injudicious reticence. If silence is turned into a complex, then the reaction will be gossipiness.


August 2019: Through the early rains of spring and through the long summer heat, I was able to re-sheath our beloved, attic greenhouse dome~ The deteriorating, rigid Lexan panels were still able to support thin Solarig film (and still allow light to shine through).

Dawn and dusk work hours avoided the hottest midday sun. That saying, "never a dull moment", urges doing other tasks to avoid the hottest glaring hours. We learned early, to forgo materialistic-perfection, such as the polish, the weeding and the self-marketing fuss; instead we worked to make life efficient with our innovative architecture, (low-budgeted as it had to be).

Natural design possibilities freed my focus away from from societal cravings of career advancement. Before leaving home at age 18, I only knew that I must find the raw roots of a workable freedom, as on a desert island, or in rural rustication.

The attic interior remains well lit, with three layers of plastic, for Alda's fragrant floral greenhouse and some other living spaces as well. Alda's floral greenhouse research focussed on her decades of flower varieties and integrated pest management, instead of using the "spray products", (which life has shown us are incompatibly toxic).

The earlier visions were mistier than this, but today's outcomes are steadily clearer. Alda had collected a successional perennial palette for gardening, beginning in 1972, which is plushly wild. Our property had been a junk yard for 1950 cars and that too was a restoration job for rent at first, but later we managed to buy the place, reduced to a few acres and we continued piecemeal homestead development.

Other duties avoid the roof-line heat-intensity and included saving veggies for winter's reserve. The world turbulence is somewhat avoided, by such older rural ways and means, by productive "sufficiency disciplines" acquired. Simplifying the material lifestyle costs did both inspire us and also barred me from getting construction work, which appears too hypothetical and less serviceable, to fit dominant hiring traditions. We loved it all along and managed to greatly fulfill both of our dreams beyond our youthful, uncertain expectations.

By age 30, we committed to build this translucent attic dome, which took us years to learn all the technicalities, as we built it, despite our daring naivety and the poor durability of sheathing plastics, needing repeated upgrades, to endure roofing exposure.

Mid 1970s
In our 20s we had finally tested and proven the potentials for integrated upstairs greenhouse as a living space, while the downstairs always remained work spaces and storage for all of our varied work activities. We also had a black-&-white darkroom for 35mm film, but we were too inexperienced to properly invest in very-precise temperature controls of the development processes, (for film).

#upstairs garden
In 1979, with world affairs adrift and with ecological-culture asking for peaceful prosperity, the methods to achieve anything were widely disputed. We found peace in rural, less developed Maine. We dedicated our dreams and energy to build this home base, but we had to slapdash our way through stormy seasons, on temporary jobs and low budgets, by combining reusable and raw materials, while aiming for a sense of ecology, to avoid the disposable wastes of commercialism. This took decades and now we manage the outcomes, part of which was always searching the boundaries of life meanings, (self educated philosophy).

Not until old age did I get around to reading Plato's books, while working on re-sheathing our dome. The hard facts of worldly errors emphasize the costly consequences for adamantly ignoring wisdom, a thoughtful subject which always powered my self education in rarely fathomed philosophy, where academia was not solving world problems for millennia. It took me decades to assure myself about this and that the whole of society as well as each human has great opportunities to unravel the uncanny dominance of materiality-knotted-up-with-emotionality, thus to eventually prepare an ethical path through advancing-evolution, through an elevating mind development, (although Plato framed this within the contexts of Ancient Greek society). Here is the internet Site which I preferred, for downloading Plato's Books

Some of us wake up to find an age-old suppression of the uncommon minds-dedicated-to-evolution, which in fact is discoverable throughout human history, no matter how great societies imagined that they were, as it is an expertly hidden, suppressive force, far outwitting the political mechanics, all of which blocks people from discovering our inevitable, humanistic evolution, which ought to overcome our novice state of emotionality-knotted-up-with-physicality. This is my interpretation of Socrates' conclusive emphases, with his added minutiae of ethics, a quality which I also learned from some rural Mainers who worked harmoniously with nature.


On moving to live in a poorer section of New York City in 1967, I walked the streets wondering if greenhouse glazing could be built on the 5 story apartment building roof tops there. In the 1990s I wondered if the translucent dome concept could find a market niche. The roof garden concept and examples shows "About 842,000,000 results (0.39 seconds)" on  google, just now. In the 1980s I came up with a term to potentially market the attic garden in a dome: "Cap-it-all" for attic garden or roof garden, etc.. Inspiring visions helped us to get through life.

cap it all dome attic garden

By now, as I am over 70, with personal failures past, with many mistakes and resulting costs paid, all along the wayside, the newer handicaps are ignored, by focusing on life's meaning, which fulfills one's older stage of being. The physical aspects, the emotional aspects and the mental aspects are harmonized by the leadership of mind, despite the worldly emotional dominance, which is wearing out it's frameworks, as it fails true evolution. This seems apparent even in Plato's ancient Greece, as I interpret Socrates' showcasing the democratic court for all future times, through his self defence, against an absurd charge:

Socrates Testifies: "Let their affidavit be read: it contains something of this kind: It says that Socrates is a doer of evil, who corrupts the youth; and who does not believe in the gods of the state, but has other new divinities of his own. Such is the charge; and now let us examine the particular counts..." (Quote from the book 'Apology', generally attributed to Plato.)

Who or what corrupts the progeny and ecology of today? Can We wonder?

Just as I began this August blog, an appropriate Youtube channel, also honoring Socrates, is offered on social media.

May we examine contrasting perspectives on work.

Does this suggest an evolution of work? Will this essentially remove energy generation costs and greatly reduce distribution cost and risk factors? Will this become the trade off, Will the power-distribution industry cooperate to gradually phase out the unnecessary cost of energy? Can we finally phase out energy-related-pollution? Thereby would a peaceful evolution of society cease the destruction harmonious ecology? Click here for the presentation of this promised breakthrough.


January 2019: Water-To-Water Heat Pump Update

We like the results, but it has taken up much of a year, to learn by prototyping the job, which was mostly pipe fitting labor. This was even slower than the conventional pipe fitting work. We clearly needed an alternative from 47 winters of wood heating, which also occupied too much time, as I generally do all or most of my own labor. My wife especially deserves an automated heating system, in case I’m not here. I adopted the water-to-water heat pump because we already had a good drilled well. This can be used as a geothermal, water-heat-source. It will take longer to see the full impact and annual operational expenses.

We have large greenhouse spaces integrated with our home, all built and maintained at very low cost, which we combined with the traditional, rough edged, rural maintenance styles of long past decades. This unpolished life style is not for the consumerist mindset. Cruder life styles were common when I arrived in Maine, (seeking my fortune, early in 1969, at age 20). I considered this a liberation from other restrictive models of living. I wanted to explore life close to nature, while at the same time tinker with constructive projects. Geothermal upgrading is just one outcome of decades working here.


. .. . .


I share my findings of the lowest possible cost, water pipe fittings. The added heating is delivered with my experimental, low-level-heat-output, plastic-drain-pipe radiators. These materials demand considerable space, by comparison to higher-heat furnace-pipes. My system should be molded into concrete slabs which could reduce concrete floor costs, as well, but only if ever this prototyping were ever fully developed and approved. I took a prototyper’s chance, as this fit our circumstances with our imaginative house.

The heat pump system still needs more radiator capacity, meaning that I have to make one more geothermal radiator, to get more heat exchange. I came up with a good plan which needs a larger, summer-season, mud-friendly work-space, (to build the next radiator). Our parlor stove makes up for the insufficient radiators for now. More labor awaits me, as my lifestyle balances a variety of work types.

The drainpipe manufacturer could never recommend this experiment, but here in rural Maine we are allowed to build our own homes and fixtures. In another lifetime I would aim for other goals, but in this life, our unusual greenhouse lifestyle, has sustained us for 47 years, (at this writing). This liberated state of living prompted me to try out the drainpipes for the radiator material. These drain pipes are designed for underground drainage only. I dared to innovate. I previously tested a smaller version with our wood heated hot water, up to 130º F (or 54 º C). This was a short piece of 8” diameter drain pipe which startled us when it expanded like an accordion, out onto our floor! It snaked it’s way out from it’s place under the couch. (See image below). Experiments keep life interesting, even with plumbing.

This unpredicted expansion was due to the gravity-fed hot water lines, as only a small amount of pressure inside the drain pipe will expand or lengthen such ribbed pipe. Softening of the plastic happens at warm temperatures, but is harmless when better supported mechanically. The ribbed geometry needs considerable bracing to prevent the accordion- expansion effect, because the ribs were intended to support “compressive-only”, load capacity when underground. This expansion was actually easy to push back into place and then screw some some wood bracing to hold it steady. This first tank proved interesting enough to eventually apply the concept to our heat pump. The electrical consumption of conventional radiators uses up lots of power, to circulate the hot water, all of which inspired the difficult investment of labor. Large radiator pipes ease the pumping requirement and lower the operating cost. This year i built a large tank and installed about 60 ft of 6inch drainpipe, as one geothermal radiator, only in one downstairs space.

In this geothermal project, i risked shortcomings, as the winter was too quickly passing by. My excuse was also that i wanted to test the maximum possible spacing around these geo thermal radiator pipes, for better air contact and better heat exchange. The maximum heat-level of my particular brand of heat pump is around 120º which is considerably less than fire-heated levels. A better frame work is needed, but later. Peace meal building is fine for me.

Also i started this work in the winter and we wanted to have these tests as soon as possible. Necessity is a motivator like none other and i left some details loosely imperfect. Once again, some parts of the geothermal radiator managed to wiggle out of place. I will let it stay squirmed until summer before emptying the water in my garden and then weld up some better metal frameworks.

. . . . .

My low cost method for connecting the geo thermal radiators uses regular Portland cement with little or no sand, but key for me was to use a special commercial product, which roots a powdery crystal compound inside leaky cracks. This is marketed for concrete waterproofing, but i am using it here, for plumbing purposes. Portland cement can apparently adapt all pipe types, for low pressure connections, but thoughtful care is required for good results. I'm building a low pressure, open loop, water system. Other tests showed me higher pressure is more leak prone with this outrageously low-cost pipe-fitting method. I think this can be OK for irrigation pipes and manifolds, possibly not for high pressure pipe fitting, but future materials may yet surprise us here.

. . . .

We dared to cut a lot of costs in making our home, from the actual junk yard which it was, upon our arrival in 1971. We endured many things but are grateful for our life , as is. We often risked inadequacies for our own home renovation, justifying this as picturesque experiences of the realm. The marketplace of rural concepts had invented the word: ‘rusticate’ to celebrate an escape from overly synthetic life styling. There are subtler principles to be focussed upon and values to be gained.

. . . .

I actually do most prototyping work with makeshift arrangements of things. One incentive is a humoring vision for added inspiration, to persist with unrelenting labors. A stranded island, or a ship isolated at sea, provides a sense of freedom from involuntary lifestyles. Isolated but with plenty of useful materials and it so turned out that recycling and repurposing supports this visionary situation, but in land based homesteading, which becomes freer only after decades of servitude, to earn and build such a homestead, in the first place. The overly marketed style of wasting natural resources and of pillaging environments, primarily for wasteful profiteering, has always urged my vision and my struggle of getting-away, to an isolated rural place. It liberated me from external servitude, and then captivated me as a self-supporting lifestyle. (While it reduces redundant consumption, which proportionally stresses the world, hereby arguably resulting, as a better service to evolution of humanity).

For a little more technical detail, below is included a picture of prototyping without a dedicated workshop. Here is my prototyping of the cement adaptor, to fit large pipes together with small pipes, but without the usual, expensive fixtures. This experiment suggests additional experiments which question the state of the art, of living more lightly on the planet. If the experiment proves durable, then it might deserve further development.

. . . . . .

The holes in the molded pipe end, are later used to insert connecting, smaller pipes, but here again using the cement as an adaptor and as a water seal, for low pressure water only. This blog is only for informational purposes and free thinking people, to help consider ways to live more gently on a planet, which is currently suffering wasteful, industrial stresses. This method explores a small possibility of reduction of world stresses by reducing redundancy. Necessity motivates a zest for life.


More of the actual, piecemeal experimentation, inside our home.


I invite discussion on relevant topics. I believe individuals can do their small part to harmonize life on the planet if they explore for practical solutions such as gentler building processes, based on the laws of life. Searching for the laws of life, that alone, will do the most for harmonizing life on earth.


December 2021 Update: The fate of my geothermal installation was a prematurely dead scroll compressor.

The motor runs but there is no pressure readings at all and, (as read on pressure meters), nor do any pipes or the sealed metal jacket of the compressor feel warm or cold after running for a while. Which part has broken I cannot tell. Sadly I could not get the needed specifications for pressure settings, as these are not stamped on the name plate, nor provided by the manufacturer or vendor, and perhaps I let the pressure run too high, as pressure rose on its own some times after long days. One spec I found for the high pressure gauge, posted somewhere on line, was over 400 psi but I kept mine well under that... One tech said you have to run everything lower than the commonly stated ratings, which if true means that efficiency is sadly reduced and running costs are consequently higher than expected. I was hoping that heat pumps were more cost effective, based on the boastful efficiency claims.

February 2019 . . . In my 20’s, I searched the meaning of life.

As an expat-child, a U.N. brat, growing up in Italy,
I was generally advised to believe in the system,
yet the “flower-power generation”, the “baby boomers”,
were questioning the sanity of “the system”, (in the 1960s).

A peaceful revolution was fine with me, but incomplete.
Movements towards consciousness were most attractive,
but reading sedately was too slow for all my energized feelings.
I avoided scanning my eyes across pages, to read texts all day.

Thanks to advancing technology, there is now an easier way to read,
or at the least to get a significant sense of books, rather than,
to finish one’s life, without having read good books, sitting on shelve.
Finally, my appetite thrills me to deeply focus on very good books.

There were no readily affordable audios, like my books of choice.
There were no free short cuts , like Youtube in those days of the 1960s.
Information moved too slowly, for the energetic-at-heart; nevertheless,
the matrix was far too compromised, to teach real meanings of life.

The legacy of published books is extensive today, but making choices
is tricky as “double speak” clouds the deeper search in various ways.
We can wade through floods of differing viewpoints and agendas,
before our own consciousness acceptably and steadily develops.

MP3-reading lets the mind develop, while the body makes a living.
If a person found such a living, combining physical activity, with both
mental-reading and with emotional satisfaction, all three combined.
If the outcome could be shared or practiced at some level, publicly.

While this might sound like too much, to expect on earth,
it is possible, if one can be freed from societal entrainment.
A worthwhile freedom from external entanglements or controls,
can be had for the cost of ignoring empty conventions.

Schizophrenic society is split, part for war, part for love.
Free thought can support the expansion of knowledge.
Consciousness study lured me, among divided teachings.
My agnostic upbringing helped me to freely savor perspectives.

I needed to compare diverging consensus of the learned.
What did the learned have to say and why do they differ?
What are each of the agendas and how do each fit?
What may be applied in life to advance higher consciousness?

Do real paths exist? Does emotionality interfere?
Could cultural- schizophrenia become resolved peacefully?
Formal -isms and -ologies stultified a search for the real self.
I learned to cut to the core, as disciplined faiths were sore.

Suffering and sacrifice, it seemed, was critical, in part.
To provide energizing shocks to break through the blocks.
All were normal parts, of an otherwise imperfect world.
Successional life explanations provided the most plausibility.

For eons of time, not widely known or explained by society,
humans have indulged ever deeper in their own masquerade.
Yet truer life would have us eventually wake up and move on.
Get on with a more evolved life form and stop holding back.

As we humans are temporarily lulled into charades, for all life.
We can grow out of these comparable states, but only with self-work.
We can grow up wholesomely, by various ways, to a full “self awareness”.
This developable state is naturally built into us, to unlock it’s freedom.

For eons of time, not widely known or explained by society,
humans have indulged ever deeper in their own masquerade.
Yet larger-life would have us eventually wake up and move on.
Get on with a more evolved life form and stop holding back.

March 2019

Instead of ecocidal tendencies,
evolution of humanity could spread new wings.
Who will focus on an advancing evolution,
from bodily emotions, to higher states of mind?

Will the majority hold entrained attitudes
immobile and stultified, for another eon?
Or change-over with an epochal transformation,
so long over due? Who will fully connect?

The integration of eastern & western wisdom,
as first divulged by Madame Blavatsky, (in 1875),
indicated the critical integration of three realms.
Where east & west held each others missing clue!

The eastern consciousness lacked the physical,
western science lacked transcendant consciousness,
both still lack key-complementary-integration, so
both still stubbornly shun the critical, integral mix.

Integration indicates that humans are not exactly “selves”,
as we are temporarily lulled into a charade, for life.
We can grow out of this state, but only with self-work,
which finally, fully, integrally resolves all these selves.

“knowledge is but remembrance” and
. . . with "self remembering” . . .
we resolve the many ‘yous’ which we ‘are’,
the many ‘youse’ of earthly flesh-existence.

Back to the east ~ east convergence or integration,
the only all encompassing understanding comes from
the Pythagoreans, a hidden school through all time,
except in our present time, is, enabling understanding.

This "less abstract" PDF book: "The Explanation"
uses more common terms, for a smoother introduction.
Personally, I love all levels of explanations, as added
contexts can help convey such essential meanings.

Perspective is also a narrow convergence zone,
by contemplating the definition, (as just now).
Here is why I corroborate ever- expanding sources,
to find a harmonious convergence zone of mankind.

Other relatable works came after the book, "The Fourth Way".
Ouspensky has plausibly written fascinating historical accounts,
as well as about practical methodology, which also explores,
a wider spectrum of Theosophy, spanning perhaps into ancient times,
but humanity requires multiple treatments of the subject
due to man's utter divisiveness in all matters, of all life.

The Fourth Way by P.D. Ouspensky
Always available at regular book sources, sometimes to be found as a free PDF download.
