Flourless Chocolate Cake – Recipe and Photos

Okay, I’m posting this as a good basic link for both the recipe and the step-by-step photos I made a few years ago in order to share it better online. I would also like to veganize it, and will get that help elsewhere, unless any of y’all know a method now? I figure I can replace the egg whites with aquafaba, but am unsure how to do so with the yolks and butter.

The following recipe is best attempted by those that are not only intimately familiar with the baking of cakes in general, but also love to bake. Otherwise, it might be too involved and advanced for the casual baker/cook. Just fair warning in case anyone makes it and ruins it on their first try! It’s not that bad (or hard) but I also had years of experience at baking before I tried this one.

Glider-Flying Dream

Glider-Flying Dream – 06-03-15

This post will be longer, though I will endeavor to break it up more so it’s not one big wall-o-text.

The dream also took place a week ago (on June 3rd, 2015), so please take that into account when reading my use of tense and referencing when I had the dream.


Glider-Flying Dream

I think one reason why I’m taking until now (after midnight on the 4th) to write this down is that it’s taken me most of the day to be convinced that I didn’t actually have a real and waking experience based on this dream. Better get into it so that makes more sense.

I remember a small, grass-field airstrip, located to the west of the old electric power plant in Webster (Texas, SE of Houston.) It had trees to the east and south, and was aligned with State Highway 3, which was also to the west of it. The distance between wasn’t much, just enough to allow for a small hanger for one plane, though it was parked on the tarmac to the north of the hanger. There was one person minding the place, but it was all open to the public, or seemingly so. He seemed to not mind my being there, like maybe he remembered me from a past time I’d been there with a pilot friend of mine.

My friend is Ken and he’s a real pilot (captain) for SW Airlines. I’ve gone flying with him before, though I’ve never been in a glider (I think he has.) In the dream, he had originally introduced me to this airstrip and the fact that they kept a biplane-type hang-glider there. It was available to anyone that knew about it, I think. Ken did, and, in my memories in the dream, had driven me there for my first flight in the glider, at least twenty years prior (it may have been further back, like some time in the early to mid-80s.) I believe he had flown it first, and then brought it back for me to take it out after a little bit of instruction. Read More…

Recently, I participated in a study about Otherkin. Basically, just a handful of in-depth interview questions. Some brought to mind things I perhaps need to point out to new readers and old, and I might even post my answers to other questions as I expand upon them.

Now, for those that have read my whole blog, you may have noticed contradictions. The stuff I wrote in the beginning might not match up with things I’ve posted more recently. Well, it’s because I’m still discovering all of this Otherkin stuff within me. It’s a progression, much like the rest of my spiritual beliefs. A “wip” or “work in progress.”

The other thing I realized I need to work on is to keep these posts shorter. I’m certainly guilty of either skimming or passing by on blog posts that are just too long, and unless I’m recounting a unique dream (as I will in the next post) I can pretty much keep most other posts a bit shorter. I may also end up reposting my posts here to one or two message-board sites I like, such as Kinmunity and Spiritual Forums. Maybe FaceTube, too.

Centaur Writing

One thing I’ve done at least a couple of times in the past is to write myself (or someone like me) as if I have been turned into a centaur, along with many others in the world. It’s always by magic, because I simply don’t ascribe to the DNA-method as I find it rather boring and too materialistic for my tastes. Plus, the materialistic method is often used to point out just why centaurs “can’t” truly exist based on known physics, DNA, equine biology, and so forth. Don’t care. In my worlds, they work because of magic. Read More…

Helping Kin

It’s always nice when even just one or two people tell you that your blog has helped them in figuring out something about them. In my case, it happens to be about Otherkin. I am positive that plenty of people with decades of experience in the kin-community likely have developed similar and more in-depth musings on the “Otherkin Condition.” I’m rather late to the party, having only been officially Awakened within the last few years (that is, I finally admitted it to myself after at least a couple of years of research.)

And yet, my words on and pondering of the subject have helped a few. No matter what you do, hearing that someone has come away from your posts with a positive outlook truly does feel good! So, here’s to those we’ve helped with our blogs, and to those of us that have something to share, however unusual it might seem.

Just a little something off-topic tonight…

In the past few months I’ve been hearing some scratching and chirping noises coming from the ceiling and walls of my bedroom. All noises were in the corner of the room that is also the corner of the building.

At first, I thought maybe some birds had set up a nest in the eaves (the fascia boards are rotting in places, and will be replaced soon because of this fact.) Later, with the sounds coming directly from the walls and the ceiling instead of merely outside of my window I thought “Great! It’s mice or worse, rats!” (Any time someone moves out around me it always stirs up whatever local fauna in the building, and I notice a temporary increase in activity in and around my apartment.)

This past weekend as I was doing laundry, I commented about this problem to one of my neighbors as we mutually complained about our landlord’s inability to stay on stop of things around here (it’s not as bad as it sounds.) Read More…

Seeing Time

It’s a topic that all too often causes people to stop listening, or even thinking, due to how complex it seems. I’m going to attempt to simplify it in ways people can readily imagine.

First, think of how we live in Time in our physical lives. It’s linear because that’s how life works in this reality. So, we can only think in terms of this came before that, and that comes after now. It’s a progression of past events from right now. (If you want to confuse yourself, just watch the clip of Col. Sanders trying to explain to Dark Helmet about “Now-now” in Spaceballs.)

So, we think of our lives in Time as a series of events, moments, and memories in a long line. You could literally lay out every memory on a 2-dimensional line, from a beginning point to a present point. Think of them as an image facing along the line to the present moment. (Some that are old enough might think of film slides in a slotted board with all facing to the end called their Present Moment.) Read More…

Infinite Spirit

So, I have Mira Kelley’s book “Beyond Past Lives” and am reading it, if a bit slowly (only on chapter two at the moment.) However, it has brought up something more related to how I perceive Other Lives (y’all may call them “past lives.”) This chapter covers her introduction to “simultaneous time” as well as a statement from her first regression-client that “Time is infinite.”

I guess I never thought much about it being infinite, still stuck in linear-time thinking with regards to the physical universe. However, in the context of Time being simultaneous, and in non-physical reality, it now matches up with other similar thoughts about Source and Spirit.

The physical universe is finite as far as the three dimensions go. Plus, even with the idea that Source could have recreated the same universe in every possible incarnation (that is, every possible choice, direction of particles, and so forth) you’d still have a finite number of incarnations. Sure, it would be an improbably huge number we probably can’t comprehend at the moment. However, Source is also infinite. And so, such a huge number of possibilities is well within its ability to imagine. Read More…
