Arrogant Lucy would like to declare that she is a Pagan. She feels that by alerting the world to this on the 17th December 2011 is the best possible time to assert her religiosity. She feels that other, more dominant religions are being forced on agnostics who are not interested enough in religion anyway to protest or go down a different symbolic path.
Arrogant Lucy doesn't celebrate Christmas, but instead uses the time to hold ritualistic ceremonies. This year, Arrogant Lucy will bless the Thames with her comrades: as a gift to the flowing waters of life; to bring hope and strength to the flow of nature.

I would ideally like to teach magical revolutionary studies in a state run organisation because I believe in a socialist educational system funded by taxes, but in the economic climate now the likelihood is that these kinds of posts will be unstable due to a political reorganisation of state run systems. So I may have to create a socialist, yet private organisation, or join one. In both of these things there are legislations that need to be adhered to because to break them is against the law of the country. To uphold legislation is to promote democracy, continually fight for the rights of the people, and to make sure we do not slip backwards into an unfair society. Legislation can be thought of as progression, or even a constant revolutionary tool.
Some legislative acts that I would use when working are:
The Equality Act 2010“to have regard to the desirability of reducing socio-economic inequalities; to reform and harmonise equality law and restate the greater part of the enactments relating to discrimination and harassment related to certain personal characteristics; to enable certain employers to be required to publish information about the differences in pay between male and female employees; to prohibit victimisation in certain circumstances; to require the exercise of certain functions to be with regard to the need to eliminate discrimination and other prohibited conduct; to enable duties to be imposed in relation to the exercise of public procurement functions; to increase equality of opportunity; to amend the law relating to rights and responsibilities in family relationships; and for connected purposes.”
This legislative act is relevant because within magical revolutionary education I wish to promote equality and inclusion of any person who wishes to learn about magical revolutionary studies. This legislation would make sure that this happened even if I didn’t want it to! I would by law have to make sure that my course was able to give equality of access to my lessons, by the designs of the buildings, equipment used, etc, depending on what my pool of learners could and could not do.
Higher Education Act 2004“An Act to make provision about research in the arts and humanities and about complaints by students against institutions providing higher education; to make provision about fees payable by students in higher education; to provide for the appointment of a Director of Fair Access to Higher Education; to make provision about grants and loans to students in higher or further education”
This would be more applicable to a state run institution, however since I wish to work for one of these primarily, I would also like to incorporate what is in the Higher Education Act 2004 to a private institution if I deem it to be helpful. For example, provision about research in the arts and humanities would be important to any environment I would teach in because the research feeds contemporary teaching practices to give the best education possible to students.
Employment Relations Act 1999“An employee who is dismissed shall be regarded for the purposes of Part X of the Employment Rights Act 1996 (unfair dismissal) as unfairly dismissed if—
the reason (or, if more than one, the principal reason) for the dismissal is that the employee took protected industrial action”
If I was employing someone or if I was employed then this legislation applies! All people within the kind of institutions I wish to work for have the right to take industrial action, and I would uphold this in any future position I find myself. There are also many other aspects to this legislation that are important to employment, and it goes through the many ways that employees should and should not be treated, including the right to not be put on blacklists when a member of a union.
Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974“An Act to make further provision for securing the health, safety and welfare of persons at work, for protecting others against risks to health or safety in connection with the activities of persons at work, for controlling the keeping and use and preventing the unlawful acquisition, possession and use of dangerous substances, and for controlling certain emissions into the atmosphere”
Health and safety is important to enable students and tutors at magical revolutionary school to experiment with materials and lessons, but also be aware of risks involved in activities, and to make sure that they are properly trained in what they are doing, while still being able to do the activity, properly. I would use awareness, training, and precautionary action to enable exciting activities to go ahead without endangering anyone.

|Went to someone else's lesson in magical issues of the day..
I was a student at someone else's class. What did I learn? That it's very obvious when people don't use the VARK system for teaching.
Looking at other people teaching, I realise that it's important when setting up a discussion, to let students explore an idea using their own reasoning, rather than directing them too much, as I thought during this class, there was a definite instance of the latter happening.
Dogmatic would be a good word to describe the style of teaching in the magical lesson that I attended. It was all about magic in relation to MI5, a troublesome subject of course.
I think, to take the points in the lesson of "what they do" (according to the dogmatic teacher, anyway) and turn them into a material definition of what was said, rather than the "magical" flowery language used, would be a good way to assess the normality of what was being taught in relation to how we live our lives.
Wild language can sound a bit out there, a bit crazy. Changing the language to describe the same material situation can lead to a different perception of what is being done. It can change the learner from being fearful and superstitious to level headed, cautious but confident!

Today I got married to communism. Here is my dress, that I am wearing, and as you can see, the red tide of communism is high in the background and I am sinking into it quite strongly and healthily.

I have been travelling for so many centuries it is difficult for me to keep track. I remember well the medieval era and even before that, before time was really a concept like it is now. I remember much further back, thousands of years, the plants growing wildly and socialism in tribal relations.
I remember being able to tell which plants were edible by their visual spirit properties.
More recently I remember being a pirate and recognising some of the trees in the boats that I had seen in previous times. I was an avid socialite of the maritime industry and had many literary pirate friends...
I was hanging around the USSR during the rise of socialism and had an energetic career as an acrobat, whilst upholding my pursuits in writing and I ran courses in conceptual thinking which was popular with scientists.
I know that in the near future the practice of mixing up the channels of thought into one large pool of human activity is going to once again become popular. I wish all readers to enjoy this cultural and bodily revolution...

|Conversation with economist/physicist/computer programmer
I had a conversation with an economist/physicist/computer programmer. Let's call them EPC. EPC told me that economics is an art and that people are paid a lot of money to speculate.
EPC gave me definitions of bonds, shares, etc, and explained their job as a programmer for a bank, and in doing this EPC is reducing human error by calculating patterns then building a program to work with these patterns thus reducing the human input. EPC said it was turning the art of economics into something scientific.
EPC explained that they can see the shortcomings of a system like that because economics is in no way precise, as opposed to physics which lays the foundations for known facts and truths, of course my thoughts on it are that the way these truths are presented using a framework and measurements is artistic and creative, the truth is difficult (perhaps impossible) to get to but these things illustrate facts at least.
I asked whether the programs EPC made could stop recessions but I think the issue is too complicated to just give a straight forward answer to. A debate over the course of a few hours with clued up people is needed I think!
In response to what EPC said about economists being able to get very rich from their knowledge I suggested that someone who was good at economics could use what they know in order to affect material change in the world, perhaps if they had an agenda to pursue...
This led me to reflect. Perhaps artists could have become filthy rich economists because of the way that they think, but didn't because they decided to do art. This different path enables a lot of artists to think freely against the normalized clutter of information and structures.

|Flipping heck, that was a long trip...
I've come back from the future again. This time I found myself integrating with a society of highly confusing intellectuals. I always wondered what might happen in similar situations to this, and finally I've been able to see first hand the fascinating concepts played out into some sort of skewed up democracy, or should that be, democrazy.
I don't really know what country it was that I was in, I get a bit disorientated and then swim for ages in the sea because I've got super strength so then I find land and it's totally out of any kind of context for me. It's nice because I don't like to have preconceived ideas about a landscape.
What struck me as most similar to my fantasies of structures was the part where the government had to always be in opposition to the intelligence workers. The way they did this in the future was to set up an art school opposite the place where all the spies work then they train up these people who can visualise concepts to be in opposition to the dominant political force at the time. Then these workers, who attended the art school, are employed secretly to safeguard democrazy. It's a really interesting way of doing things!
Oh oh! Then I went down the road to the future version of a jobcentre. They were recruiting people to be in opposition to the art school workers (who didn't know they were workers because it was a secret) because they wanted it to be fair or something. That bit I didn't understand so I told them so. I said "Hang on guys, why are you recruiting people to have the same views as the government? I thought the intelligence services were meant to be antagonists so it all works out like a well constructed essay?" Then they were like, "take yer cat suit off luv, yer nicked." and I was like "see ya!"
It was really weird. The future felt a lot like the past and I didn't like it. Luckily I stopped off at the 1970s and had myself a lovely time in the bar hanging with the guys listening to some motown.

|Thoughts on the waning job market
Arrogant Lucy deplores some career decisions made during her past lives. (She thinks that it is perfectly acceptable to be the one thing that she is most well known for as her previous career, but she doesn't like to talk about it too much, she just made a blog about it.) She deplores these things:
Wanking off stock brokers as a career
Blood diamond purveyor
Armourment fair operative
Armourment fair jester
Pharmacutical company lobbyist
Domestic extremist list maker
That's enough now. Arrogant Lucy hereby declares, that these careers, are not to be given into, during the tough job market as a last resort.

|I'm so excited for the future!
Since employing my secretary we've been having some wonderful discussions about the future of my helpful activities. We've come to the conclusion that I'm going to set up an NGO and a charity. I really can't wait to start work straight away. I can't reveal what the NGO or the charity will be for, but it will be in alignment with my previous political activities but the aims and objectives of both of these things will not be political in themselves, other than in an educational sense.
It's so wonderful to be setting up a charity, it makes me feel so good about the world and about structures. And the NGO, my gosh. That's going to be a fantastic opportunity.

|Looking through a dusty pile of old photographs today
Memories of past lovers... I found this particular photograph which made me smile. It was taken around late 2003 early 2004, I'm guessing in quite mild weather because of the clothes at night. This was when I was out on the town with my ex husband. I'm sure you can guess who it is from the photograph, but just incase you didn't know, he's quite a good political news presenter. We don't really speak any more which is a shame, but I do have fond memories of our early dancing dates on the rings of Saturn. I still frequently go there because of how nice it was when we went there together.

|Arrogant Lucy has employed a secretary to transcribe her thoughts to part of this entry.
Arrogant Lucy believes matter that is being watched behaves differently. It bes and haves differently.
When Arrogant Lucy was looking at space today, she saw much tension, hands and feet and faces wanting to be seen in the air. She thinks, if crystals were to be formed now, they would be in jagged and harsh shapes. Last night, Arrogant visited a war zone. She'd been to this place before, only in a dream. It was in the centre of London, by the Thames. The war was between the young, healthy anarchists and the minority group of older men and few women, typified by their inability to speak in straight answers, riddles more like.
In this "country "(some people like to call the land things) a few hundred years ago, war was where groups of people were mobilised and threw objects at each other. Then came technology, and an increase in ideas of who the military were. This was often far removed from any kind of fight that the vast majority of dwellers were concerned with. Then, in the 20th century, when technology in war was developing more rapidly than ever before, the people were still going to war in the old ways. This has carried on as a tradition to the present day. However, things are different now. The people going to war have a higher level of communication and plan distribution, through social networking sites and mobile phones. So many of them have this technology, that it is impossible to monitor given the amount of staff the minority hire to fight against them. This is why they were able to spread out and scare the "royal" family. A difference between now and a few hundred years ago, is that now, the violence is less explicit within war. It would be obvious to point out that it still exists within a structure that is imaginary but has real life consequences (like a magic spell) invented by the minority. People are waking up to see the structure isn't real, and they can change the real life consequences.Now, Arrogant Lucy's secretary will type up the second half of the Will Self book review.(Grey Area, Inclusion)
"As I go on I realised that Self is going on about the intellectual addiction that I've heard others mention about his work, as inclusion makes one analyse everything in the world with enthusiasm, which is like a constant essay running through an internal monologue, or an infinite number of variations on an essay dealing with subject matter in an inexhaustably creative way.
Then I get another sense of something I have an experience of being discussed. The way that one's head opens up, and I get the image of birds flying through a late summer sunset in the countryside within my skull at this point. This is what I think is being explained. About feeling like the world exists inside your head and your head extends to the whole world around you. Seems quite religious. The specific point at which the similarity between my own thoughts and the narrative within the story became apparent was when the painter said, "I can sense the barrier between my conciousness and the world is becoming fuzzy and indeterminate."
After I re-read this, I have come to a conclusion, that it suggests a breaking down of dissociation and utilising osmosis (hopefully for advantage)."

|Arrogant Lucy was given a present
"Every discourse, even a poetic or oracular sentence, carries with it a system of rules for producing analogous things and thus an out-line of methodology. Each time this identity announces itself, someone or something cries: Look out for the trap, you're caught. Take off, get free, disengage yourself. Everything is arranged so that it be this way, this is what is called culture."
The "culture" appears to be fixing lexical definition, but this statement is persuading to stop the tradition.
I think the statement also extends to visual discourse, for example, clothes carry with them a history, subculture connotations, or specifically rejecting subculture connotations (hyper normal, hello) and material circumstance, this is just as relevant as words on paper. The visual objects that do not have the words attached to them, convey the relationship between being spoken of on the t-shirt present. The stories around visual objects like clothes are precisely like the "system of rules for producing analogous things and thus an out-line of methodology". The way people are afraid to wear certain clothes is also the way writers may feel caught by their sentences. To break free could be connected to punk ideology, in my mind it is. But then the very idea of putting something in a box when it is breaking free does not seem to make sense, however....
|Arrogant Lucy does a book review again.
Will Self, Grey Area, *Inclusion*
I think this fiction is a critical comment on how people who are depressed might be so because they don't feel included, or that depression may cause people to not want to be included. Indeed, it could also mean that the current society is different to those ancient ways of living done by tribes, mentioned in the book. Possibly it suggests that our society has less inclusion within it's structure compared with past ways of living. It could also be a hint to certain activities that are supposed to be interesting actually being incredibly mundane, I sense a frustration of reality being mundane and making "depressed" people feel separate from it because it bores them.
The story hits upon a familiar note when the painter prescribed inclusion is able to read people like how he reads the evolution of bar mats by looking at one. He reads one of the people involved in the illegal drug trial then knows everything about it. This person then says that the painter is probably suffering from psychosis and has discovered all of this by chance. I think this parallels with the way some people ignore their own ludicrously damaging and absurd behaviour then when other people become upset because of it (and why shouldn't they?) these people call them crazy. This probably has a lot to do with percieved levels of power and social positioning, the doctor and the patient, the differences between accepted behaviour and the arrogance of someone in charge of someone else's health.

|Arrogant Lucy spent some time in the 70s living in admiration of Stevie Wonder
I have recently become aware of some people being unaware of my history, when indeed, I did attend to men of music throughout the decades (retired now) Stevie Wonder was not one of them. The reasons for this was that I was too shy to speak to Stevie Wonder, back in the 70s he was surrounded by quite an entourage, which Syreeta mentioned in her song Just a Little Piece of You.
I'm now going to take a moment to appreciate this fact.

|I went to Hyde Park recently
To investigate some odd structures that happen to have appeared there.
A man named Anish Kapoor has been employed by the government to make scientific equipment which has some kind of effect on the people viewing the equipment. It actually has a controlling effect. Sinister. Evocative, but I am unsure what of. It's a mystery to be solved. What are they actually doing?
It could be anything, it would be silly to suggest anything yet without the necessary research. However, I do wonder whether the mirrors are some kind of magical object using the same kind of trick as what the financial institutions use. Mirror to reflect all of the criticisms resulting in them growing stronger even if bad spells are being put on them all around. That would be obvious. It would be interesting to find out if some other kind of process is happening with them that does not involve the reflection of ideas. Many people have suggested that other kinds of physical processes may be available if our minds are open to them, unfortunately we are earth born creatures. It might be that to comprehend such patterns of physical behaviour we would have to be from elsewhere.

|Arrogant Lucy went on a trip to Avebury
Arrogant Lucy was joined by John Steed.
Our first destination upon leaving the campsite which we shared with some sunken eyed, demonic, magical hippies was a small party of trees upon what looked like a man made hill. It was here that I became aware of the beings underground conducting an analysis of our investigations. They were alive within the roots of the trees and became very excitable at the curiousity we gave to their patch of land.
Then we moved on to the two lines of stones which go up a hill where there were cows. Immediately they made me feel uneasy. I wasn't really sure what was there, with the energy of the place. It was almost like the space was trying to attack my brain. And as I was looking up to the sky I saw what could either have been a cathedral-like structure or a space ship. It must have been the site of where there was once a very, very tall building. But then the only remains that were left were these two lines. This concerned me as I was there because I wasn't ready for any kind of religious ceremony and the idea of a space ship so tall and old blew me away. So I got up and started walking quickly to the top of the hill following the stone lines. It turned into a time and space travelling device. I could see the particles rushing past me, a bit like the scene in a star wars movie or something like that. We got to Avebury where there were the circles of land. One circle that we got to seemed to be a map of all of the star signs. There was a tall hill, the tallest infact, and I decided to climb up it, instinctively. Upon contemplating the space for a while I realised that I climbed up this particular hill because I'm aries and this hill was where aries lay on the piece of land equipment that was the grassy circles. I realised this because a ram decided to come sit next to us. I was looking at these circles and could see where the other star signs were within this aparatus. Strangely I had worn a necklace to our mission which corresponded exactly to the circles, with the star signs going around it and a mound at it's centre. I took this off and tried to use it as a key to the puzzle I had obviously been given. Tried as I might, I think the weather was not ideal for the use of this equipment and research should be done as to when is a good astrological time to unlock the structures in place.
At this point it was becoming more and more obvious to me that the site of Avebury was under attack by U.S.A. They were changing the very fabric of the earth so that it was always emitting an American typeface and styling of lines. WE ARE USA was shouted to the ground, in the mud. It was also in the sky, above the clouds. I don't know how they were doing this but I imagine it was some kind of radiation to change the codes of nature in the earth (specific calculations to bring about an aesthetic pattern) or alchemy to do with planes leaving chemicals in the sky on a particular layer of the atmosphere. We also must not ignore the chemicals which exist within car exhausts and food contributing to the change in cultural perception. Why Avebury? Their scientists and philosophers are probably well aware of it's significance and power within the fabric of the earth's crust and are probably conducting spiritual warfare.
Next on the agenda was a trip into an ever more puzzling set of buildings. This time, they appeared more recent. There was a giant drafts board on the floor, and a house with chequered grass in it's garden. We entered a church. Inside was some masonic equipment. There was a driving seat for doing magical spells. There was a lid on it, and inside there were the remains of someone. John Steed sat in the driving seat and did some experimental magic, or was it experimental? On the walls there were some old pictures, even though it was a painted white wall and quite flat, there were pictures of old family crests in the walls, mixed with American typeface. I'd imagine that those who operated within the church, local families perhaps, historical ones or even recent, had some kind of input, whether they intended it conciously or not, the fabric of their DNA was imprinted at this place.
Then we went to the pub. It was all in quite bad taste, the carpet was moving, and there was a well which one villiager had fallen down in, inside the pub. That's the point that the trickery of Avebury became apparent. Something within the place was not right, something had happened there in the past, and the remains are all we have for evidence. Or are they?

|Alchemy of the supermarkets
I spoke to a fox outside some bins on my way home from saturn last night. He told me that the supermarkets are in league with alchemists. They are trying to promote certain foods to specific demographics in order to affect some kind of change in their behavior and thought patterns. They're run by an elite organisation intent on absolute control. They've also put the northern cities to sleep with fluoride in the water.
This information I already knew but needed the fox to explicitly state that what I thought was indeed shared. Now that we have come to this conclusion the only thing to do now is start a public awareness campaign of the dangers of alchemists in modern society using advertising and facilities to construct situations for their magic to have a real effect on who they are trying to change.

I'm dressed like a pirate today, but you can't see this as I don't have a camera. The reason I am dressed like a pirate is because I dislike the banking system which is based on maritime law.
I've been communicating with the woodland souls, some people call them fairies. They're a lot like myself. They told me that when someone has energy, for example, food, when it is wasted it gets sacrificed to their world. The way things in the world of humanity are structured, there is a lot of sacrifices going on. It's well known to the fairies that this is intentional by the humans in charge. "They're trying to bribe us," one said, while devouring some fruit smoothie that someone spilt as it travelled from blender to chalice. "They don't understand that we want to be healthy too, they keep sacrificing shit."
Lately I've been finding it difficult to stop myself going into the other dimension, it keeps happening without my instigation. I don't mind too much, the awakening of my eye chakras resulted in an enhanced colour spectrum of vibrations (that humanity lost the ability to experience) which present themselves to me in a realisation of other sentient beings existing to the side of us, invisible to those not tuned into the entire spectrum and therefore other dimensions.

|As a woman
The scientist has been complaining that the stasi have been interviewing her again in the guise of someone trying to chat her up (she only has eyes for me). But she did ask me to give a little science lesson on my blog because more people read my site than hers. She learnt from someone she thought was the stasi about putting a seed under the tongue then planting it and the tree having healing powers for your own personal dna, if you make tea from it or drink the fruit. The stasi know all of the things we know, they just keep it from us.
As a woman.... I don't want to be tied down by structures, even if I like people, it's positive that I want to be free.

I went quite far back in time, I've been hanging around with timeless human beings as animals, eating from the land, like wild peas and things like that. Something I did notice though, and this is a bit weird, is that there was some kind of strange breeding process going on. It seems that humans, back in the day, were breeding the fatter humans together, for food. Now, I can only assume that this resulted in the modern pig. I've always thought the hair on pigs looked a little bit.. familiar.
