    The Temple of Lost Hats

    The Temple of Lost Hats: Rumors of the Existence of a Secret Hat Society have never been Proven…..

    For months now it has been suggested that a Secret Hat Society exists deep in the jungle presided over by a mild-manner professor-parson . . .



    Who turns into Indiana (yes that is where he was born) Phil at night, guarding the entrance to the home of the SHS, while keeping wild animals at bay as they graze near the entrance. . .



    The eyes of wild creatures are watching all who would dare enter . . .



    The following are scenes from a meeting purported to be a very secret gathering of the even more Secret Hat Society. You judge for yourself if you think the society exists . . .

    Inside the cave, guards gather at 11:05 PM to make sure all is ready for the midnight hour . . .



    The drum of doom through which all who would belong must pass; the white flag ready for those too timid to survive . . .



    All eyes are glued on the initiate’s attempt to survive the drum of doom . . .



    A guard strikes the pose of contempt that mere mortals would seek to enter the cave of lost hats . . .



    The sergeant at arms warns -- “This far and no further! No un-initiated may enter the nursery of unborn hats” . . .



    SHS members gather around “the one hat” to give proper obeisance . . .



    Never before have members of the SHS ever been photographed. These people are NOT members of the society….They were not secretly filmed performing strange rituals at night . . .

    Suddenly it is dawn

    and the society rooster who doesn’t exist, signals the call for completion of the meeting . . .



    The sun rises over the ancient jungle ruins as the mountains call the members home . . .



    So ends the Secret Hat Society Meeting that never happened!

    The European Strategic Intelligence & Security Center (who doesn't exist, really ) is trying to infiltrate the Secret Hat Society (who doesn't exist either).

    Let's slow things down for a bit...

    It is rumored the best European specialists are already being briefed to try and infiltrate that Association That Should Not Be Named.

    This is great, we all need to laugh every so often, and by reading this it made me laugh, and I hope it will make the start of today go pretty good.

    Very funny,

    I can only hope to someday be asked to help guard the path to the Secret Entrance,(which of course does not exist) I have served my time as airborne

    With the middle East Secret Society

    And in my youth sailed the seas with the Vikings

    I was Once asked by the FBI to Infiltrate the hippies and save the USA

    I have even saved lives at times in the medical profession

    In the meantime, I will humbly wait and serve as I can in the lounge until the possibility of being called to a higher service...

    Here are some thoughts by Ludwig Wittgenstein quoted from his Tractatus Logico Philosophicus. It might be of help:


    1 The world is all that is the case.

    1.1 The world is the totality of facts, not of things.

    1.11 The world is determined by the facts, and by their being all the facts.

    1.12 For the totality of facts determines what is the case, and also whatever is not the case.

    1.13 The facts in logical space are the world.

    1.2 The world divides into facts.

    1.21 Each item can be the case or not the case while everything else remains the same.

    2 What is the case--a fact--is the existence of states of affairs.

    2.01 A state of affairs (a state of things) is a combination of objects (things).

    2.011 It is essential to things that they should be possible constituents of states of affairs.

    2.012 In logic nothing is accidental: if a thing can occur in a state of affairs, the possibility of the state of affairs must be written into the thing itself.

    ....

    7 What we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence.
