Rickie Traeger: April 1st Blog




I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful April 1st! 

As many of you know I enjoy listening to a lot of talk shows these days. Coast to Coast AM, Fade to Black, Etc…  Well they brought up an interesting point. And I figured I would put it in my blog.  This is one of their opinions and in a way I kinda share it. Hence why I am posting about it.

We have been pretty much on lock down for awhile now. They said the pollution levels have declined a lot on Earth since this shelter in place has taken effect. Which is a darn good thing!  I am beyond glad the pollution levels have dropped a lot! But then they brought up a theory.

What if Earth has adapted to all the pollution and gasses and other things?  And now that the pollution levels are dropping, could that effect how Earth and its climate changes or improves or worsens?  What if this happens to bring on the next ice age?  Yes, that was a far fetched idea they tossed out there. But we can not rule out that possibility. Because Earth has not had this happen. So what could this mean for Earth and other things?

In all honesty I hope that it improves Earth and our climate and atmosphere.  Less pollution means more fresh air. Cleaner waters. And just a healthy Earth overall. I hope scientists are really studying how Earth is going through these times, and seeing what it does and does not do.  Maybe we can learn something good, out of a bad situation.

I just wanted to post about their opinions because I was thinking about it.  How will the Earth adapt to these changes?  That is a good question that we should all be observing!

I have reinstalled Bionic for Seti@Home. But they shut down their servers a few hours before I reinstalled it.  If I had known that, I would of waited to reinstall it lol. But now it has some more options on there besides the Seti@Home. So i chose some other options to run on it. All astronomy stuff 🙂   If they can use my PC power to help learn things in the universe, then more power to them. I have gladly helped for almost 2 decades now, and will continue to do so for many more decades to go!

Stay safe everyone 🙂

 








Rickie Traeger: I have been thinking a lot about my NDE a lot lately




So I have been thinking a lot about my NDE a lot lately.   

I have no idea why, but over the last few weeks I have been thinking about my NDE experience.   Take for granted there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about it.  But lately I been thinking a lot more about it.

I have been thinking about how there is the possibility of the afterlife.  I can not explain my experience. I can only tell you what happened to me. I do not expect people to believe it. It is a hard thing to wrap your head around.  But I know I experienced it.  So all I ask is, that you keep an open mind.

I been thinking about the experience.   About what happened and how to explain it.  In all honesty I have no idea how to explain it.  You just have to experience it, to understand it.  And I do not want anyone to go through that.

But I sit here and think about things and the possibilities that may exist.  So, theoretically if we all die and if there is an afterlife or do we become ghosts.

I have always struggled with the idea of religion and God, since the experience.   Before my NDE experience, I did not really believe in God and the afterlife.  Frankly I just laughed at anyone who said otherwise.

After I had my NDE, I do believe there is SOMETHING that happens.  I struggle to try to comprehend if there is a God? Are angels real, what was that I encountered? Is it all just in our heads? When we die do we really have this new experience or is it just something that goes in in our brains? I mean there is a lot about the human brain we have to learn. So is a NDE another plane of life, a mental image, just what is it?

I struggle asking myself if there really is a God.  Why would God do some stuff that he does? And then how do you explain a NDE and my experience?   I don’t really know how to explain what happened, but it did.

I have been finding myself questioning God.  And I have no idea why I been thinking about my NDE a lot more here recently, when I haven’t thought about the NDE for awhile.  Yes, I think of it daily but nothing like to this in depth.

You know what I should do, is find some other people that have had their own NDE.
And ask them how they feel and to hear their stories and feelings.
I think it would be good to hear other peoples NDE.

If you or someone you know has had a NDE, please take a minute and contact me.

 








Rickie Traeger: Happy Walking Dead Day!




Hope everyone had a good Sunday! Happy Walking Dead Day!

I wanted to wait until after I watched the Walking Dead before I blogged tonight.

Hard to believe only 3 episodes left of the Walking Dead, well I think 2 now 🙁

It be interesting to see how Daryl reacts to Carol using him.

And to see what Negan is up to.  The show is making it look like he is wanting to become friends with the whispers.  My opinion, I think he is trying to join them to be a spy.  I think he has grown on everyone and came to the good side now.  After he killed that savior last week. And how he grew on Carl and others. I personally feel that he is trying to join the whispers to help the good side. I guess time will tell, lol.  I like Carol’s idea though. Get rid of the horde, you get rid of the leverage of the whispers. I used to hate Negan, but now I kinda like him. And like I said, I think him trying to join the whispers, are to take vengeance for what the whispers have done.
