don't know if you've answered this, but when do you think Dean gave Cas the mixtape? 12x01? before?

Ahh, well, of course we can’t know, but I speculate it was after the “I love you” debacle of 12x12.

My personal interpretation:

Dean knew what Cas meant. Heck even Sam and Mary knew. It’s written all over Dean and Sam’s faces after the second clarification. They know.

Dean then gives Cas a mixtape, which is his way of trying to say it back but still sublimating, cos, well, he still is at this point.

Then the NEXT SCENE we get of them actually together in the same room, is the “worried wife” scene of 12x19 and the very next scene of them in the same room WITHOUT A CHAPERONE and without one of them under the influence of something terrible, which hasn’t happened since…. THE BURGER DATE????  

We get confirmation of a mixtape and basically a “are we breaking up?” “no I still love you you idiot” scene.

So… what you’re telling me SPN is, looking, just since season 8,  

Dean / Cas only scenes :

We went from: 

“I’m not leaving here without you” 
to “I did everything I could to get you out, EVERYTHING” 
to “talk to me” 
to “I need you” 
to the wonder of 9x06
to the BURGER DATE 
to hunter husbands in 12x01-02 
to Dean being Cas’ human weakness, longing for him enough that he picked up on it, worrying over him on the couch in 12x10 (let’s not forget the actual chaperoned scenes in the diners of 12x10 and 12x22 either which were was SO romantically framed)
to “I love you” 
to a mixtape and a MASSIVELY romantically coded potential break up / not a break up scene 
to Cas’ death and Dean’s grieving.

*Incoherent screeching*.

I read an old ghost post from season 9 saying they just can’t write Dean and Cas in the same room without a chaperone anymore without it being romantic and… well, they’re not wrong. 

It’s just gone from strength to strength.

anonymous asked:

YOUR TAGS. I feel you girl. It irritates me when people pretend Dean hasn't found his perfect match. Even in S4 when Dean barely knew him Cas was gentle and wanted to understand Dean "you don't think you deserved to be saved", the park date, etc. He sacrifices everything for Dean, makes Dean laugh (HE HADN'T HAD FUN LIKE THAT IN YEARS), always comes back to Dean. I can boldly say Castiel is the one person Dean is the happiest around. It does help that he thinks Cas is devastatingly handsome.

Some people must be watching the show like this:

Because really? Dean hasn’t found someone who loves him fully and unconditionally?

A person who would be literally everything Dean would look for in a romantic partner if he allowed it for himself? 

Someone who sees who Dean really is and loves him for it? Who would always choose Dean? Who would give up things for Dean? Who would rebel and fall for Dean? Who would always look out for Dean? Who would always care for Dean? Who would even keep away from Dean if it would protect him? Who would care for him when he’s wounded? Who would also care deeply for Sam because he loves him like a brother? 

Someone who is his equal, a BAMF, who knows the life, who brings out his soft side, who brings him up when he’s at his lowest, who challenges him, who sometimes even frustrates him because he cares so much. Someone with no preconceptions of who a person ‘should’ be, who therefore has no comprehension of why Dean would repress certain sides of himself thanks to low self esteem and cultural norms and therefore accepts and loves him for who he is as a whole, even the sides Dean might not even like himself, helping Dean to learn to embrace them. Someone who helps him be the best him that he can be, who would always choose him and would theoretically stay at his side for centuries if need be, who, when he doesn’t stay it’s because he is trying to protect him from afar and keep him safe, but someone who always comes back to Mr Dean Abandonment Issues Winchester.

Someone who would watch over him as his mother, up on her pedestal, always said Angels would, but you know, literal Angels don’t exist so he would have to settle for a metaphorical romantic partner for this, like in all the love songs and fairy tales…

WE JUST DON’T KNOW WHERE THIS UTTERLY UNREALISTIC LOVE INTEREST COULD BE HIDING.

Classified Informations: Dead Sea Scrolls

The prophetic text in which the times of the Angels’ appearances are recorded.

Seele possess a vast amount of wealth, and, consequently, they had one face as a patron foundation of the arts and research. The Artificial Evolution Laboratory, Gehirn, etc., were funded entirely by Seele.
Perhaps because of their origins as a religious organization, Seele often managed the funding support for investigations into the relics of their own faith. Among these, something was excavated that marked a significant turning point for both Seele and humankind: the Secret Dead Sea Scrolls.

The Secret Dead Sea Scrolls are a scripture written by the First Ancestral Race, a manual regarding the Seed of Life (Progenitor Entity) and the usage of the Spear of Longinus security device, possibly while applying a scheme at the time of use to a religious group’s own doctrines. They are written prophecy, in so far as they remain active even in the current day according to a design of the past.

Until then, Seele had only fragmentary knowledge of the scrolls’ contents and existence, but they had never imagined that the scrolls might actually exist, contain meaningful prophecies, and turn up in near-perfect condition. They were sent to headquarters promptly, upon which the actual truth was skewed and immediately covered up. The parts of little consequence, later released to the public, were called the Dead Sea Scrolls, whereas what Seele made off with were dubbed the Secret Dead Sea Scrolls.

Bughead is Ross and Rachel. Which, one, makes me hate Ross and Rachel and realize how bad they were for each other. And, two, makes me really dread the future of Riverdale.

                                                                           So I just realized something…                                                                    

Bughead is Ross and Rachel.

Which, one, makes me hate Ross and Rachel and realize how bad they were for each other.

And, two, makes me really dread the future of Riverdale.

Oh good lord, literally, the ONLY thing BH has in common with Ross and Rachel is white, het couple, where the dude liked the girl first (and it’s hardly similar beyond that) and he had darker hair than hers.

That is ALL…….

Beyond that: different concept, very different genre, show dynamic, story lines, inter character dynamic, characters themselves (though Rachel evolved into probably the best, most grounded and likable character of the pack), evolution, etc….Plus if anything, Bughead probably would be a LOT closer to Monica and Chandler, TBH….and even then, it’s a stretch.

Also, it’s a fucking TV show, if you stop enjoying it, just go watch something else.

anonymous asked:

Wait, do humanistic Jews believe in the whole thing about how the Earth was created by G-d and not the big bang/evolution/etc? im not sure because i know they're atheists but it's complicated

Hi there,

I do not think that the vast majority of Humanistic Jews would like to ‘label’ their Movement as atheists as to be inclusive with those within their spaces who have a different relationship with theology.  Although some in Humanist communities would self-identify as an atheist, others might simply not like using the word God or synonyms for God in their worship. 

Although I cannot speak on behalf of Humanistic Judaism as I am not a Humanistic Jew, so I can speculate a bit on behalf of what Progressive Jews generally understand the concept of the Big Bang!  (But I recommend reaching out to the leadership of the Society for Humanistic Judaism  or to @humanisticjudaism !)

I would argue that most Progressive Jews believe that science helps us to understand how our beautiful world formed, continues to form, and functions.  I personally believe that our Creation Accounts (Gn. 1:1 and following) are examples of not only some seriously important Jewish values, but exemplify our tradition of discovery.  As Jews, we love to learn and grow and explore and the Creation Accounts are simply an ancient example of this.  We have always sought to answer the age old question of ‘how did we get here?’  Think about a  comparison of the passion and pure chutzpa of the writers of this ancient model of creation compared with some modern scientists and historians who look to make sense of the world:  Einstein, Bohr, Freud, Meitner, and even our pal Maimonides from the Medieval period! 

Although many Progressive Jews believe in the tenets of the Big Bang Theory and Evolution as to be the foundations of Creation, there are still many questions that can be asked as to our scientific understanding of the universe and our own theology that we all ask:

*The Big Bang Theory caused the universe to go into a series of steps that would eventually form stars and planets, eventually creating life that would evolve into the diverse planet Earth that we know and love today. If all energy was released from the contraction of the universe with the Big Bang, what caused this initial release?

*We know that species have evolved over millennia through mutations in their genome.  Are these mutations really just random?  Is there something more to them?

*Ecosystems are incredible examples of how perfect the world really can be.  How did these systems form to be so perfect?  Is there something else *there*?  Or was this also just random?

*Why have human beings evolved to be the dominant creature on the planet?  Why us?

 For me, the answer to many of these questions and others are deeply rooted in my faith.  But hey, maybe that’s why I’m becoming a rabbi?

psa to stop making “genocidal terrorist” jokes about magneto

why yall need to stop that shit:

  • magneto is a survivor of a genocide (the holocaust) and making genocide jokes about him is very offensive and antisemitic
  • magneto does not support genocide in most portrayals of him - rather he calls for mutant unity and an overtaking of the humans in the form of a rebellion, revolution, or war of some sort
  • furthermore, in the house of m universe, supposedly magneto’s “dream world”, mutants are socially superior and are safe from human persecution, living in a world won through a massive mutant rebellion/war, not a genocide
  • (going on a tiny rant here: these evil grimdark magneto portrayals [the original x men trilogy, x men: evolution to an extent, etc] out there are gross mischaracterizations and ripping a character from his context and history just to have a diabolical stock villain is disgusting, especially when most of said grimdark magnetos engage in genocidal actions and/or experimentation on mutants, things magneto is a victim of)

Wealth for some means poverty for others. The reason why there cannot be unilinear progress is the fact that, as was said earlier, the predatory patriarchal mode of production constitutes a non-reciprocal, exploitative relationship. Within such a relationship no general progress for all, no ‘trickling down’, no development for all is possible.

Engels had attributed this antagonistic relationship between progress and retrogression to the emergence of private property and the exploitation of one class by the other. Thus, he wrote in 1884:

Since the exploitation of one class by another is the basis of civilization, its whole development moves in a continuous contradiction. Every advance in production is at the same time a retrogression in the condition of the exploited class, that is of the great majority. What is a boon for the one is necessarily a bane for the other; each new emancipation of one class always means a new oppression of another class (Engels, 1976: 333).
Engels speaks only of the relationship between exploiting and exploited classes, he does not include the relationship between men and women, that of colonial masters to their colonies or of Civilized Man in general to Nature. But these relationships constitute, in fact, the hidden foundation of civilized society, He hopes to change this necessarily polarized relationship by extending what is good for the ruling class to all classes: ‘What is good for the ruling class should be good for the whole of the society with which the ruling class identifies itself (Engels. 1976: 333).

But this is precisely the logical flaw in this strategy: in a contradictory and exploitative relationship, the privileges of the exploiters can never become the privileges of all. If the wealth of the metro poles is based on the exploitation of colonies, then the colonies cannot achieve wealth unless they also have colonies. If the emancipation of men is based on the subordination of women, then women cannot achieve ‘equal rights’ with men, which would necessarily include the right to exploit others.

Hence, a feminist strategy for liberation cannot but aim at the total abolition of all these relationships of retrogressive progress. This means it must aim at an end of all exploitation of women by men, of nature by man, of colonies by colonizers, of one class by the other. As long as exploitation of one of these remains the precondition for the advance (development, evolution, progress, humanization, etc.) of one section of people, feminists cannot speak of liberation or ‘socialism.’

anonymous asked:

(1) I know you mentioned somewhere that you were atheist but I want to know why? I believe in God, and when you said you didn't, I just couldn't. I may disagree with you on what you believe about God, but I still think your pretty cool. (Cont.)

Cont. (2) I think if God gave you free will you can do whatever you want and if you chose something different like become atheist then only God can judge you. (Cont.)
(Cont.) (3)It wouldn’t be right if I judged you because I’m not perfect. You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to.

there are a plethora of reasons i don’t believe in god (only a few of which i’ve listed below):

some reasons are personal - i was raised in a catholic household and forced to follow the religion against my will. when i was younger, if i ever spoke out against god or catholicism or resisted in any way, my parents physically hurt me. i was a fucking child. i’d rather believe god didn’t exist than believe in a god that let that happen to children.

some reasons are historical - one only has to glance at the pages of a history book to see the unbelievable amount of slaughter that has been justified by religion. why a benevolent and omnipotent god would allow people to commit that level of violence in his name is beyond me.

some reasons are social - christians tend to be against things like gay marriage/marriage equality and abortion. additionally, i once asked a christian group leader about the rampant misogyny in the bible and her response was “women are well suited to be servants”. i’d rather not believe in a god whose followers have views that dehumanize me.

some reasons are philosophical - contradictions and problems arise when we consider the nature of god.

some reasons are scientific - evidence strongly suggests that the bible is wrong in explaining certain natural phenomena (like the creation of the earth, evolution, etc.). if the bible is god’s word, and god is supposedly omniscient, this shouldn’t be the case.

i suppose the ultimate reason, however, that i don’t believe in god is because i simply have found no good reason to.

laughingbanshee  asked:

can you give an example of an intp and an isfj in the same franchise and comparisons of them? also while we're at it can i ask you what made you decide that your true type is really isfj?

Have you seen Jurassic Park?

Ellie is an ISFJ… Ian Malcom is an INTP.

Ti users… think… think… think… never stop thinking. Ian does that all the time. More than Ellie, though considering the extreme circumstances, she’s able to stay calm in an intense life or death situation. 

Before Ian even reaches the island, he’s analyzing the possibilities of what might happen as a result of bringing a million year old extinct species back to life. He’s already ticking Hammond off long before he sees an actual dinosaur, because he is bringing up all the logical fallacies of … everything. The potential flaws in the park, in what this research is all about, in the effects it will have on life as humans know it. Ian can see the broad, sweeping implications of this research… how it branches out into other scientific realms, its religious and social implications, how it might impact the surrounding islands, etc. EVOLUTION FINDS A WAY, AND YOU SHOULD NOT BE SCREWING WITH IT. He’s thinking on an enormous scale and concluding that THIS IS A DUMB IDEA. Remember, if Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don’t eat the tourists. =P

Later, in Jurassic Park II: The Lost World, we get to see CLASSIC inferior Fe going on. How? He starts emoting. A lot. The fairly calm, analytical man from the first film turns into a complaining mother hen, because he’s freaked out about what happened last time he and the people he cared about were anywhere near dinosaurs (Si at its finest) and … his Fe need to “dump emotions in order to deal with them” activates. He becomes highly emotional and reactive in the moment. But, Ian mostly navigates in the realm of IDEAS. That and flirting. He’s good at flirting.

Now, Ellie. She’s incredibly smart and dedicated to her job, which is all about scientific knowledge and details. Preserving old bones. Unearthing old bones. Knowing a crap-load of information about plants that have been extinct forever. Her emotions are even keel, usually under control but do influence her decisions — like her desire to stay and help them figure out why a dinosaur is sick while a storm is blowing in. Empathy rules the day. She’s even kind to Hammond despite being furious with him. Little bit naive about the fact that Ian is hitting on her, but broad-minded and fascinated with the park itself. The potential it has to be great. She’s not as quick to leap to the potential problems with the park because she’s captivated with what’s in front of her — baby dinosaurs, big dinosaurs, the sensory things… seeing brought to life something she has spent her entire adult life studying.

Half the subplot of the first film is her gentle nudging of Dr. Grant (ISTJ) toward… the kids. How typically high-order Fe: teasing, amused at his annoyance, but an undercurrent of wanting him to adapt and be more socially appropriate / comfortable with people who are not totally logical. Under stress, she’s emotional but also able to think logically … and consider the consequences of their actions. Her Ti turns up quite often — she’s an intelligent and studied women, but she’s using Ti as a problem solving function. A puzzle solving function. How did this dinosaur get sick? What has it been eating? And later, when everything goes to hell, it’s … how do we get out of here? What can I do to help? What do we do now

As you can see, Ian is analyzing concepts all the time, like … “God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God…” and as a sensor, Ellie is pointing her Ti at the situation right in front of her in order to solve a problem or understand what is happening. He is dealing constantly in the realm of abstraction, and she is dealing with sensory reality.

Doesn’t mean she can’t keep up with him, wit-wise, though. (“Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth.”)

On me: my first indication of true type was my annoyance that when engaging with INTPs, they could not stick to specific examples when we were discussing typology, but were constantly deviating into abstractions. I could not keep them on track or get a straight answer out of them, and half the time I didn’t know exactly what they meant. Like most sensors, I’m literal first and then the abstract reasoning kicks in and I can use my Ti-Ne to form a broad understanding of what someone means based on context. I also only ever deviate into abstract reasoning when I am working on a project… in other words, I don’t do it all the time. I merely do it when I’m around Ne types or am exploring ideas for a book / story / article / discussion.

Second… I can control my Fe. Very well, in fact. It is normal for me to repress it and show little hints of it in conversation, but under extreme stress, my Fe doesn’t activate. My inferior Ne does, and worries about the future. This angst only turns up in Ne-inferiors (ISXJs) and often cripples us from doing something because it’s so low-order. We can’t foresee or envision a single ending (like Ni can … in the SPs) so we come up with sixteen potentially bad situations and/or possibilities and that causes us to hesitate before … taking that job… marrying that person … etc. In short, we’re a bit fearful.

INTPs aren’t. Ne lives in the moment, reacting to what’s happening around it, so NPs are not halted from starting things (and then abandoning them when they get bored) by fear. No, their problems are all low order Fe… uncontrollable bursts of emotion and problems with social appropriateness due to their bluntness. I have the one, and not the other.

anonymous asked:

I saw that last anon conversation about zoology--can you go more in-depth into zoology as a degree/career path? Please? I live in the U.S. by the way, I'm still in high school and at this point zoology is what I want to do... Or I think so. Gah. I want to work with animals. And I've decided against veterinary sciences as they limit the range of animals I am exposed to as well as the types of interactions I can have with them. Etc.

It’s taken me forever to get to this ask, but here is the answer:

I’ve written about this before, but basically Zoology is a huge field. Like, really frakking enormous, because there are so many ways it can be subdivided. These fall into two general categories though: (1) Taxonomic subdivisions (ornithology, herpetology, mammalogy, etc.), and (2) Methodological subdivisions (evolutionary biology, behavioural ecology, bioacoustics, etc.).

As a zoologist you have a choice: you specialise in one or the other of these ways (or, more often than not, both). By that I mean, you could go into behavioural ecology (sometimes referred to as Ethology, a word I personally am uncomfortable with, but to be honest I am uncomfortable with a large part of behavioural science to begin with, so I am biased) and focus on one particular part, such as parental care, and then study that in a wide variety of animal systems, OR you could go into herpetology or entomology or ornithology and study a wide variety of topics, such as evolution, behaviour, diet, etc., within this specific taxonomic group.

Usually, you wind up specialising in both ways: I study the reptiles and amphibians of Madagascar, and am most interested in their evolution, systematics, and ecology. This is a double truncation of my field of interest.

The trade-off is this: if you specialise in a methodological subdivision, such as ethology, you may become an expert on one particular behaviour, such as brood care - there are a lot of people who are working on this topic, and the competition is FIERCE. Alternatively you could become an expert on one particular taxonomic group, in a variety of ways. The trade-off may not yet be apparent, but it is significant: you are far more likely to become the world’s leading expert on sub-saharan helminths, than you are to become the world’s leading expert on species-species interactions. Becoming the leading expert is an aspiration of many people, and the reality is that taxonomic specialisation makes that more likely.

BUT you are much less likely to land a good position as a taxonomic specialist unless you use that speciality to answer big evolutionary or ecological questions. This is why Jonathan B. Losos is such an important scientist: he is the world’s leading expert on Anolis lizards, but he uses these lizards as a study system in which to address big evolutionary questions such as convergent evolution and niche partitioning.

To get back to your questions, I believe the vast majority of people going through university/college Zoology degrees come out and leave zoology as an academic field. This is because many people see it as a soft science - an easy degree to get. And in some ways, they are right; certainly it is not quite as complicated as astrophysics. But it really depends on how you treat it. And there are a lot of other things you can do with a zoology degree that don’t involve being in academia, like going into pre-vet, zoo keeping, the pharmaceutical industry, or more specialised biological fields such as genetics and genomics.

Generally speaking, however, zoology is an academic field. The only people who really refer to themselves as zoology are scientists, because obviously it literally means ‘the scientific study of animals’. As with all academic fields, job opportunities are thin on the ground and pay is not great. But the people are enthusiastic and passionate about what they do (generally speaking), and because of that, it is an extremely engaging and rewarding pursuit.

Remember when entering university that your declaration of a major is flexible. You can say 'yes I’m going in to study zoology’ and come out with a degree in theoretical mathematics. Stranger things have happened. If you really are not enjoying it, in the first year or two of your degree you can usually change tacks. So if you really think right now that zoology is for you, go into it! If you decide along the way that you prefer economics, then you can make that change. But just do something in which you are interested. That is key.

The Path of Empowerment

So through my time away i’ve been getting back into reading and I forgot i had this book on my kindle so i started reading it one day. I was amazed how much it resonated with me and how it’s so in tune with what we are all going through right now. The funny thing is it was written in 2004! It’s like she predicted the future ;) Anyway It’s called Path of Empowerment: New Pleiadian Wisdom for a World in Chaos by Barbara Marciniak


I’m only on chapter five but it’s so good so far i wanted to share it all with you if you guys are looking for a new Summer read or whatnot. She talks a lot about frequencies, learning to operate and see frequencies, how consciousness and telepathy are interconncted from the cellular to the intergalactic levels, how to learn to connect your inner and outter world and see the connections, learning manifestation and the power of thought, the evolution of the soul, etc. What i’m really enjoying is how it isn’t just solely based on the revelations of 2012, she’s talking about how we are an evolution of consciousness that is effecting us daily through the ripple effect. Our thoughts project awareness into our reality and we are like radio antennas broadcasting our thoughts into projection by our emotions :) I’m always iffy when it comes to channeling material but this one hit home base. 

Here’s some passages i enjoyed so far: 

“Your imagination is a priceless and handy tool for developing and exercising your attention toward creating what you want in life. In the imagination all thoughts are real.”

“Telepathy is a natural form of communication by frequency that is inherent within all forms of energy. Mass agreements about the nature of reality are unconsciously debated and considered on a psychic level of reality at the speed of though. Your cells are continuously receiving data and evaluating, processing and transmitting signals that carry the frequency of what you are available to experience; these activities are effortlessly performed, without your being the slightest bit aware of them." 

"All Thoughts take on an energetic form in the world of frequencies, and feelings are the fuel used to propel the signals of thought into the surrounding ether. Thoughts cluster together and congregate by similarity – like attracts like." 

"Art is a dance between shades of color and tones of sound and light. When you examine your beliefs and the darker side of existence with another lens, it can free you to reexamine your life’s creations from a different perspective. Perspective is everything. " 

And this is just a spoonful of the goodies i am finding. 

Hope you all are having a beautiful day in your world <3

love

Ash
