Beginning My Journey

A bit about myself. I am a 36 year old mother of 5, my eldest is 17 and my youngest is 6 months. I live with numerous mental ill health conditions, but I refuse to suffer them, although work outside of the home is an impossibility for me. Thankfully I find motherhood an easy challenge, and I cannot work for more than a few hours of volunteering as my middle child needs constant supervision and I am his full time carer. I have a wonderful fiancé who spends far too much time on his PC, but that suits me quite well because of my need for peace and quiet.

I have always had an interest in how things work and why things are, why things work and how they are. I flit between obsessions and am currently juggling three; politics, semiotics and theology, I am sure they will soon be joined by philosophy. A previous couple of obsessions have been psychiatry and psychology, so I can see myself drawing on what I have learned from them also in my new journey.

My starting point is of an atheist anarchist. My passion has been kindled from speaking with a couple of theologists and some Jehova Witnesses, while in the grip of trying to help the United Kingdom free herself from the grip of austerity through left wing thinking, and trying to understand the semiotics of propaganda. I think theology fits in with this very well in terms of organisation and propaganda.

I am going to try and start things from the beginning, working my way through Christianity from the book of Genesis, acquire religious texts of other beliefs, read Plato and other people on the origins of the state, research the greats of semiotics. Politics and religion have their roots firmly planted in the connections between signs and symbols and so semiotics is the obvious way to unravel the truth behind the writings, art works and theatrics of both. Both have a beginning, and I am sure both will have an end, be it the Wall Street apocalypse or the great tribulation. I want to talk with as many people as possible who know these subjects, and many more that connect in some way. But I can’t hold decent debates without at least a basic understanding of that which I am debating. So onward with my journey of discovery in a fascinating world of symbols and signs, words and hidden meanings. Dan Brown watch out, I may end up writing a blockbuster to rival The Da Vinci Code!

And, as you know, I remain at your beck and even your call for a resource in the fields in which I am versed.

  9. So I’m a little late coming to this blog, and I respect your interests, but you do know that I have a lot of insight into religion, I grant you it is generally a very negative view of religion, but I have grown in that regard since you knew me, and I do try to be more balanced in my approach to religion and it’s ideas these days (although I do still tend to argue from the point that it is all rubbish when getting into conversations with those who insist on preaching at me). If you do ever want to discuss things, or bounce ideas around regarding religion, feel free to get in touch.
