I thought I’d release this unimpressive video, (confusing if it’s the first here you’ve seen), just to top off 2017 about a month late. It completes my commitment to produce 12 videos – one each month. Of course, I failed at that because I skipped January. In January, I was struggling with my new trucker job and frustrated that I couldn’t be home for Epiphany, much less finish up the five part harmony arrangement of The Ring of the Thoughtful Driver.
The Ring of the Thoughtful Driver was a love song for Lisa set to the tune of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen intended to be in the style of the Pentatonix, but recorded by me, which I’d hoped to deliver to her for Christmas, along with me. The project didn’t materialize on schedule because I lacked the right equipment to record it and I was trucking away through the holidays, thanks to the immense disorganization of the company I work for (which shall not be named). I can’t overdub and monitor and even if I did, my mics and effects processing would be a long way from Pentatonix quality. My voice – that’s also a long shot from the quality I would want, but that goes without saying. Frustrated, I put up a video somebody else made that I thought was worth watching and sent my wife the manuscripts for The Ring of the Thoughtful Driver for Christmas via Facebook. Maybe I can get it recorded by next Christmas if I can get some help from some friends. Shown here is page one.
So to today. Here we are in February and I’m realizing how incompatible trucking is with recording. Still, I need to convey a host of thoughts that will establish and define Foundationism, Cosmostrophy, the HAND System and other unique expressions I’ve had. This driver has been doing a lot of thinking. These thoughts are worth sharing. So in baby steps, here it comes. Only for the coming days, I’m going to take a new approach. I’m going to compare and contrast my own thinking with other stuff I find on YouTube. By doing this, I think people will start to discover what Cosmostrophy is, what Foundationism is, what Asynalagonomy is and maybe, just maybe, the YouTube search engine will pick my videos up as relevant for certain key words since they’ll be responses to already popular stuff. Expect some changes in the formatting at JamesCarvin.com to accompany that. I’ll be categorizing things in ways people are more used to.
A frustrated husband is out trucking but doesn’t have the recording equipment he needs to synchronize himself in five part harmony. So here’s the manuscript honey. Maybe I’ll have the recording by Epiphany. What year I’m not sure. Calling on helpful friends for Christmas 2018.
Set to the tune of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen in the style of the Pentatonix
Since my brother Christopher Charles Carvin (5/17/56-11/10/17) passed this month, in future months I will be picking up on the last words I have of his on video – “Chris-mas.” This fits in to the Super Series, which I’ve decided to continue. The Super Series plays on acronyms that summarize my cosmostrophic foundationism. By following this series you will learn what it means when I say you are a Selectively United Portionally Ecstatic Realization Commuting History Resonating Infinite Sympathy – SUPERCHRIS. More importantly, the reason for this is SUPERCHRISTMAS – TO MAXIMIZE AWESOMENESS SILLY! Other points to note – Resonation is your part in Reverberation. Infinite is an Ideal that Imagination Indicates. Sympathy is a Symphony of Beauty in Love that must be considered apophatically. And then there is “Supertransentience” and that’s not silly, Silly. It takes human sentience and adds something transcendant, something super, something awesome, something unlimited. More on that in future Super Series videos. Chris Mas!
What is the meaning of life? SUPER CHRIS! A study of St. Christopher and Christopher Columbus leads us to a whole nuther Chris! This is the story you haven’t heard yet. And it’s the third in my SUPER SERIES. Get out yer pop corn and enjoy the show!
What is more appropriate for Father’s Day than SUPER PAPA, the second in my Super Series!?! In this video I lay out the heart of my foundational cosmostrophy. There is a cause of all causes and its purpose is to maximize awesomeness. The acronym that describes it is SUPER PAPA. The comments below would be a great place to discuss why maximized awesomeness is inevitable. Subscribe to comment. Share with a friend!
For Mother’s Day, I’m beginning a Super Series of videos. Using some super acronyms that will describe certain new concepts I’ll introduce. I’ll start here with a discussion of where artificial intelligence is heading. Imagine what quantum computing could do if it combined robotics with the ability to upgrade its own software and parts using its self designed ever improving AI …
With the world’s population growing at a compound rate of 1.11% a year, the population is doubling every 62.8 years, which means a three digit increase in the population ever 628 years. We don’t have long to solve what doesn’t quite feel like a problem yet but we’d better get started. We can do it the nice way. Or we can suffer the consequences of ignoring the problem. Carvin’s solution is to dedicate research to learn to create inhabitable planets out of nothing throughout the Universe rather than explore distant galaxies and have wars and other dystopian circumstances on earth. A secondary piece of advise offered is to utilize the Human Availability and Needs Database System (HANDS) in order to solve the health care crisis, save the environment, reduce crime, end poverty, maximize awesomeness and turn around ailing nations like Venezuela. It is a better form of management.
