Farmer Michael Schmidt on “Seven days until the raw milk appeal verdict”

Brief recap: Michael Schmidt was acquitted in January 2010, of all 19 raw milk related charges arising from the November 2006 raid on Glencolton Farms. However, in February of 2010, the Province of Ontario filed an appeal of that verdict. The appeal was heard in the spring of 2011 and a verdict has been promised for September 16th, 2011. This post from Michael Schmidt is one of a series, counting down the last ten day until the announcement of that verdict:

Seven days left until the raw milk appeal verdict:

I bet those investigators, health officials and law offices with the mandate to keep a file of all these postings are shaking their heads about these postings of symbolism.

I think that is the beauty of this forum that we by default give them a chance to expand their horizon.

Nothing is cut and dry. Everything has a purpose and a meaning. Even these seven days until the ruling. Why not use that as part of another perspective to look at the world.

I find it extremely interesting and inspiring to reflect on these numbers and what they mean.

Yes may be those who keep watching us start to think that it is not worth fighting with us anymore because we are completely cocoo.

But may be they even start reading some of our quiet reflections and thoughts and begin to understand that there is more to the world than seven rules. There is a meaning in numbers , there is a purpose in numbers and there is no sense to have 500,000 regulations because the only symbol of this number 500,000 is insanity and there is nothing they can brag about it.

Enjoy reading my friends.

Yes you are my friends, friends with a purpose.

Law of Seven – Heptaparaparshinokh

The first of these fundamental primordial sacred cosmic laws, namely the law of Heptaparaparshinokh, is formulated by cosmic Objective Science in the following words: The flow of forces follows a line that constantly deflects at specific intervals and unites again at its ends. According to this primordial sacred cosmic law, the line of the flow of forces has seven points of deflection or, as is otherwise said, seven ‘centers of gravity,’ and the distance between two consecutive points of deflection, or ‘centers of gravity,’ is called a ‘stopinder’ of the sacred Heptaparaparshinokh.’ The complete process of this sacred law, acting through everything newly arising and existing, is always made up of seven stopinders. (25)

The number Seven has been used since time immemorial to describe the creations and ordinances of God and the subsequent patterns that appear in the natural world. Here are a few examples :

Early Indian Music

In one view, cosmic sound (nāda) is the cause of the material universe and it is identifed with the Brahman of the Upanişads. Nāda is synonymous with parāvāk, and it comes in two forms: āhata (perceptible sound), and anāhata (unstuck or absolute sound). Music is the elevated form of āhata nāda whereas anāhata nāda can be cognized only through Yoga. The two kinds have a close relationship, and a śruti, a small interval of sound, represents their joining. The texts tell us that 22 śrutis span the seven notes of the saptaka. The problem as to why this subdivision Early Indian Music 3 has 22 elements has concerned musicologists for a long time. It is also not clear why the śrutis are divided non-uniformly into groups of four, three, and two into musical notes in Bharata’s Nāţya Śāstra. The saptaka, the “series of seven” – the same as the octave or the “series of eight” of Western music – spans a doubling of frequency. The seven notes of the saptaka are named sa (for şad.ja), ri (ŗşabha), ga (gāndhāra), ma (madhyama), pa (paňcama), dha (dhaivata), and ni (nişāda).

The seven fundamental tones of the octave express the law of seven. The addition to it of the Do of the next octave, that is to say, the crowning of the process, gives the eighth step. (ISOM137)

    Kudos to both Michael and the Bovine.

    I like it best when a website like this becomes a sort of scrap book where we can all contribute to its daily ledger.

    If there is one thing we people need, it is more closeness (call it intimacy if you wish) and trust for and with one another, in our daily lives and even in our so-called ‘business’ transactions, with no intervening (government) authority or agency.

    Lovely essay ! Thank you.

    On a different note I looked up the word COCOO in Wikipedia and the closest thing i could find is CUCKOO . Here is what it said :

    In culture

    In Europe, hearing the call of the Common Cuckoo is regarded as the first harbinger of spring. Many local legends and traditions are based on this. In Scotland, a number of Gowk Stones exist, sometimes associated with the arrival of the first cuckoo of spring. “Gowk” is an old name for the Common Cuckoo in northern Britain,[4] derived from a harsh repeated “gowk” call the bird makes when excited.[3]

    The well-known cuckoo clock features a mechanical bird and is fitted with bellows and pipes which imitate the call of the Common Cuckoo

    Truly I do believe that the work that Michael is attempting to birth and stabilize not just on behalf of Raw DAiry but Food Security IS A “HARBINGER OF A NEW SPRING” for Canada.
    It would be great if the authorities see it in this light instead of the older more derogatory slang definition of CUCKOO !

  3. A little off topic here…but could someone tell me WHY the judge would not announce the verdict way back on the day he said it was decided??
    Is that a normal thing for courts to do? and what political (or other) purpose would it serve??

  4. Judges get a lot og material they have to research especially if it involves challenges based on the constitution.
    A n appeal is even more complex that the trial itself because of the legal research and how it applies under these circumstances. As higher the appeal goes as more dissecting has to be done.
    It takes time and I am glad he is taken the time to research the case.

    Hello, Michael, Nedlud, Raoul, Janeen, etal…..
    Yes, big NUMBers are meant to numb.
    Six months ’til the verdict? shakin’ in yer boots?
    ‘Government’ types cannot possibly live in the present moment. Albert Einstein explained the predicament beautifully in his essay, ‘Why Socialism?’, for the first issue of the NYC-based socialist mag ‘Monthly Review’ in 1949. ( http://monthlyreview.org/2009/05/01/why-socialism ).
    ‘Political purpose’ brings up the memory of the Greek lesson having to do with the origin of the word ‘diplomat’. Di meaning ‘two’, and plom meaning ‘face’.
    Breathing with you on this 9/11.

  6. correct me if I’m wrong…but didn’t the judge take a long time to come to the verdict (hopefully doing extensive research) but then, after it’s been decided…is not being shared until now?? what’s the purpose for delaying sharing a verdict that’s already been decided??

  7. posting so I can check off the followup box…

  8. Janeen this is the appeal not the original decision.
    Judge Tetley has been working on this on and off since April I think and needs time to research the arguments and look into the fact if Kowarsky
    “erred in law” when giving the verdict last January. It is all a question me thinks from which angle one looks at the issue.
    It is like using the example of looking at a cow. If you only look at the cow’s ass you will have no doubt a limited understanding of the whole cow. Todays bureaucrats seem to have very often a ver “ass-enite” attitude and lack wholistic approaches to a complex issue.
    We need to expect from Judges a much broader approach to justice than the technical nitty gritty, I kill you approach of prosecutors working for Government and cashing in big time for destroying lives, farmers and parents.
    I do understand the frustration of many with the justice system, but let’s put the pressure of expectations out in the public so that Judges feel the encouragement to learn to once again become independent and fair.
    I hope that helps.
    Your Saskatoon spirit is a great and important part of the food rights moooovement.
    Thanks Michael
