14 of December - week to that very day, when Sun begins to move on Northern half of sky and end-day of fund's domain name - appointed as the day of Kalos Magic - we'll jump'n dive'h to "full offline" - Tree Call was heard and understood this way - we really could do much-much more, just stopping filling-forms web-time-waste.
Today its mean that 2 of the fund's members going to be fully real in job2do, as I can't afford anymore to spend even a small time writing something here & there without clear vision "Why I'm doing this?". For continuous time I was in auto-accepted mode with about obvious needs of such activity, and repeatedly advised. Now, while doing life-offered works to cover life expenses I have more time to look and do the main.
So there are no any point in posting anything for abstract "public" anymore. But it was essential experience, and maybe useful for the others who will take a part of Eco-issues in future, wind takes my words to that future "others". So below - random pieces from our long-long chronicles of attempts to get the attention from those who claimed - "We are here to help!" - various eco-orgs, charity funds-donors, religious societies, state bodies, private philanthropists... Took from the recent things - about the trees of Rudraksha & holy trees in common. There are lots of investigations about Rudraksha was done in different aspects in recent time -medical use, pharmacopoeia, uniqueness of that blue color creation in berries of rudraksha, Color-reel in 108 nights of its Raspberry-red leaves etc. I wrote about Rudraksha research before.
The Big Light Calendar of Night Colors has light of Moon, stars and its meetings with fire. Reflecting their relations on the point of time, calendar dedicated to show the relations of eternal energies in Time, and maybe even to give something to those who can perceive it. Started from February-15, or before - its not completed yet - I hope to finish it after... While it will be posted on Psy.In,here I will post random pictures from recent nights.
Testing various forms to show it, we found that 4K or Ultra HD TV screens are the best, especially when watched in a dark at nighttime. Retina screens of Apples also works fine, and most of mobile devices too.
And prints looks even better after heavy rains, and looks good both at day & night time.
- and 10 of my super-photo-stories from our Human World Heritage deleted - welcome to the world of super-polite people!
From Ronny Gonzo
Oh, I feel again this pain of loss – is it mean that I became stronger or more experienced? – Sure, or sure not. But it was good for me demonstration on etiquette today – web-etiquette, when you shouldn’t explain anything to anybody and ignore is commonly recognized practice – as its not a human on other side of the world did some efforts to share his thoughts - how-to-do-good for all of us - but more like just 1 more “user” without any rights. This is usual, and no need reasons for explaining. What is new for me is a totality, full win of concepts as "marketing strategies" and "selected niches" over the real views of men, over our real human nature - crystal clear, bright Love & Harmony, and Wish to do good for others with steps on path to wisdom - why almost none of you're like that?!
First they claiming "we're so cool & inspired of what we do - we are real people, trust us and join" - just to get some goals in numbers, no matter of any difference in slogans - its Ok, while you're in minority and cheating the masses of hard-working fools to live with comforts on their account -its everlasting story and everyone tolerates that. But when everybody in all the World got the similar point (its not too complicated, this big truth of pseudo-evolutioned men after all of the progress - simply try to get more for yourself from treasury, outrunning the losers) - this global money-making addiction became boring and trivial, and then harmful and dangerous for all o the others creations living on Earth- yes, they still exists.
Here different story - I was mistakenly thought that this site is also a "community for Eco-oriented people, seeking new ways to get things on our planet better" and same mindless (as I see now) stuff. Its gave Ronny the energy to share his ideas, but... After writing 10 colorful posts there my account was suspended. No explanations, no way to send me back an of text, nothing. I had a various topics there – from the ideas like "PhotoStay", “Tea Travel” & “Property Art” to rare pieces of Buddha & Tolstoy, almost unknown by mass readers.
My activity there lasts for 6 months, what means that first stories were Ok, and they had a chance to delete just the recent, but preferred not to do it. But now I've got a auto-message! Here's what I got on e-mail:

There are tradition of poor "3-d World" countries - to cover bad & ugly sides of reality by high shining marble walls - especially to hide it from some VIP-guests - diplomats, businessmen and members of international organizations for "human rights". Sounds stupid, but works well - nobody will notice! Roots & analogs of this I see in global web today - artificial politeness and smiling people on a pictures are the marble walls, covering same reality, and same values - values which still protected and guaranteed by same tools - power of violence offline, and power of delete you without any negotiations in www.
Good news at the end of such a "sad" story
As I just was informed by phone, both of them - my good friend and enemy in 1 body - who is also super-web-programmer - has a good healthy life working in chemical concern somewhere close to Sybiria and has a time and wish to launch something new. So together and very soon we going to make our own storytelling platform, with much better features than any of existing, and free for the good people we know, and who we will meet in future. Keep in touch!
Today morning I read in Russian Cigun magazine (not publishing anymore) from 2/2012 interview with Andrey Sidersky - Big-Yoga-Master, inventor & founder of many health-enhancing Technics. In this interview he mentioned the connection between chakras and our DNA - and its explanation from the book what he just read - it was book of V. V. Yartsev, which I didn't find in English. This gave me the reason to write this post.
We found our river bungalow in Ta Ling Chan just by chance, while went from the island of Koh Phangan to visit big waterfall on mainland - "it was noted on 1000 Baht" - told us the man on a boat, taking out and showing us the banknote - there was a big dam -recently was new issue of money and picture was changed...
It was already dark night, when I saw the road turn and a sign to the national park & waterall. After few km I notices lights on a road and the poster with time of work on Thai language - intuition told us that its can be a place to overnight stay. It was right feeling - we've got the clean room in concrete bungalow for cheap small price and after short break decided to drive at night until the road end - to hear the roar of fallen water and feel its refreshing breeze.
Next morning we woke up going to check out from our bungalow, saw the river panorama, reminded about 1 way road to the park and decided to prolong our stay for 1 more night - we should pass this place anyway on a way back to our home on the island. To sleep near the river was so sweet that this one more day wasn't enough, owners shows us the wooden bungalow - what was even better, and we agreed to stay a week more there.
Dee is more friend of mine, than a neighbour, however when I ride fast, looking on a big grey-purple cloud above it, I can reach his farm before the rain. Usually its happens when our family going to the temple next to Dee - Full-Moon is a time I always want to be there. Dee always helps - among the various things she do, she also invite and meet most of new temple visitors. After they keeps in touch in temple's social page (which looks like it also run by Dee).
"Traditions we proud about" and similar parrot-cries
By Rony G, refers to Tree Ownership. He believes that someone will find more simple effective ideas to make the World closer to its paradise state. We at Kalos are ready to support this naive grand-mustached child.
Its looks obvious that fresh, clean air is among prior values for all of us humans. Really its on Position One - Numero 1 - people live long without anything else - lives without money, months when no food, days without water. Without air? How long YOU gonna live without air?
"Without - just a minutes, but breathe poisonous dirty stuff - for all of my life, and bequeath it to children" - answer from the air - exhaled air of nowadays homo unsapiens-pudendus.
Our fathers of old lives here, respecting the land and caring about the world around. And in general there are no any changes from that times - no any culture, nation or country has a reasons to spoil the air in a way we do. People with children has more reasons to pay big attention to the Earth's air.
Together with all of the other treasures Thailand has a hidden map of vintage & antique shops, where you can find many interesting items for symbolic prices. Below are few recent Japanese tea-ware and table ware items, what we've got - from the shop with largest in Thailand Japanese tea-n'table-ware. Before I even started to create online map of vintage/antique shops of South Thailand - together with map of hidden spiritual "places of Power" and best places to "stay on nature for cheap" its could be impressive Collection of Maps. But after 1 more shut-down of our old wordpress website we decided that its a sign to launch new one without attempts to restore it. Now again I see more practical reasons to move it there with tips how to find the shops - what maybe will be done 1 day:)
All that things were purchased in Thai Baht, and prices in US $ are approx. by memory.
Story how I choose the new CMS/web-builder for my Psy.in photo-art galleries. Eventually I'm on SmugMug & Pixieset
Time ago it was super talented and experienced web-programmer living next to me for years, together we made lots of exiting web-things and I didn't have any questions related to website building. He created first Psy.in on Wordpress and then upgraded with more features, updated it with actual innovations, inserting any new idea what comes to our minds. Then super-webPro left our fund - idea of "non-profit" began to sound scary for my friend, (when he realised that we really intending to keep that direction - as I only can suspect). He went to work on big chemical company, and have very limited time to connect and assist the humanity throw us, using his skills and web-intuition*.
Collection of pictures raised from hundreds to thousands, and people who loves it - from few of my friends and family members to small community, which is promise to be much wider. Wordpress without the web-master shows all of its whims, and after weeks of "Error establishing a database connection" I dive into the exiting world of web-builders again. Below are the main points - positive & negative of each in few words - I'm not going to write a book about that*.
I 'm going to write a book about our passion to chocolate, about idea of tree ownership - how to own the cacao tree with new ideas to make our Tree Owners Clubs globally known concept - Tree Owners Clubs all around the world. Also here are new posts on Nakhon Si Thammarat blog page about that, and more coming. And Dozen - hotels, villas and people - we should work on it, otherwise nothing will save future of tourism from boredom and triviality.
All web-builders what I checked and declined
5. ZenFolio - in a morning it was a winner - but now on day 9 changes applied - I'm not going to use Zenfolio - my feeling that they made it good time ago, then sold and stop to care about clients so much. Here are the points:
Positive things first to show the best of Zenfolio - why I almost paid for it:
+ easiness in website building,
+ nice look - full-screen templates,
+ and the recent news what I randomly noticed while searching - that Art.com bought Zenfolio** - all together made my first positive feeling to try it more during the trial period. Psy.in was with Zenfolio, now on Smugmug.
Next at same day I more enjoying Redframe and Pixieset, which both are free of commission. So obvious minuses of Zenfolio are:
- 20$/month with 7% free & unlimited storage - Zenfolio most popular plan. Not the best offer by terms provided.
- Commission - I stopped to understand why I was going to pay commission for my own clients, after all existing commissions.
- Zenfolio logo - you can't remove it even with 60$/year plan - those owners and developers so amazingly far from us, like its other galaxy - lots of their clients asking to update it for years, without any success.
- no referral or partner discounts (easy to get and more amount of discount on smugmug) - Zenfolio affiliated program offers 10% go me & referral, what is the minimum what I saw in web ever, however they didn't approve me even with that terms, without the explanations about 1000 visitors/month is nothing for such a hugeMonsta.
Finalists winning trio
3. Redframe - all good here with Redframe, however its doesn't looks oftenly updated. 16$/month plan if pay annually. I used it for 2 days during the 2 weeks trial period.
+ unlimited storage.
+ no commission on sales.
- some features used Joomla-style scripts - I'm afraid of Joomla, its scary stuff - really scary.
- Shopping features made too complicated for me.
* Its not a post aboutour preItMasta or any other person, adding just that sometimes he was feeling himself in web-jungles as tiger in a deer forest, who decided to be vegetarian. After the while he notice, that all good vegan food in a forest eaten by bears and deer, roaring on Moon and missing his homeJungles with its hidden chain of little cosy palaces, which only one know. This one knows lots of things, but who knows this one? - we teased him, giving more and more work.
**Was sounds melodic - art.com bought zenfolio.

From nice movie about super-spyes I made that header for website - not for any of mine - nothing related.
So, will share - free for all, not fast, no extra efforts - pure kindness in its latest edition, on Psy.in.
