From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Remark \Re*mark"\ (r?-m?rk"), verb (used with an object) [imp. & p. p. {Remarked} (-m?rkt"); p. pr. & vb. n. {Remarking}.] [F. remarquer; pref. re- re- + marquer to mark, marque a mark, of German origin, akin to E. mark. See {Mark}, v. & n.]

1. To mark in a notable manner; to distinquish clearly; to make noticeable or conspicuous; to piont out. [Obs.]

Thou art a man remarked to taste a mischief. --Ford.

His manacles remark him; there he sits. --Milton.

2. To take notice of, or to observe, mentally; as, to remark the manner of a speaker.

3. To express in words or writing, as observed or noticed; to state; to say; -- often with a substantive clause; as, he remarked that it was time to go.

Syn: To observe; notice; heed; regard; note; say.

Usage: {Remark}, {Observe}, {Notice}. To observe is to keep or hold a thing distinctly before the mind. To remark is simply to mark or take note of whatever may come up. To notice implies still less continuity of attention. When we turn from these mental states to the expression of them in language, we find the same distinction. An observation is properly the result of somewhat prolonged thought; a remark is usually suggested by some passing occurence; a notice is in most cases something cursory and short. This distinction is not always maintained as to remark and observe, which are often used interchangeably. "Observing men may form many judgments by the rules of similitude and proportion." --I. Watts. "He can not distinguish difficult and noble speculations from trifling and vulgar remarks." --Collier. "The thing to be regarded, in taking notice of a child's miscarriage, is what root it springs from." --Locke.

I am a visual artist who is also a visionary. I make gold that is rewarding to look at. The OPEN SOURCE software gods gave me the gift of kaleidoscope making. My kaleidoscopes are very simple and not so visionary, but my banking ideas, on the other hand, are as visionary as they get. I am not behind-the-times. I look way ahead. I keep it really, really, really simple. I speak truth to power. I have a lot to say. Most of it is behind-the-scenes although often it passes through my home page only to be replaced by something else soon after. Due to a mental disability that is beyond my control, I get to enjoy FREEDOM OF SPEECH and FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. That same disability is also a GIFT. My words have VALUE.

I function as a sort of messenger on behalf of others who are way smarter than me. Our relationship is very hands-off. I have no direct contact with the members of the scientific community I hope to speak out for at times. I'm just saying what some smart people are thinking but not saying because they are too smart to say it out loud. I say the strangest things about the most sensitive topics with an apparent lack of appropriate inhibition. Is there anything you'd like me to say? Would you like to discuss some things that are classified?

As a result of my disability, I automatically perform mental gymnastics in order to make my actions educational and enlightening and useful to others. I am performing for an unseen audience with the intent of educating. I assume ubiquitous surveillance. I am hard-wired to teach. I automatically make a glaring example out of myself and become a very good exaggerated test case in point for the record and, at the same time, my situation becomes healthy fodder for constructive and educational critical civil discussion that tends to contribute to getting problems solved dramatically more quickly and efficiently than if we weren't having the discussion at all.

As I see it, this is what we need to think about in the way we need to think about it in order to solve the big problems as soon as humanly possible using all available tools and technologies. Some industries must go. We have to take care of the people in those industries. If we focus on taking care of the poor, unemployed and retired, we can phase out any industry we want while minimizing the harm to its employees. We can even pay off mortgages and debts and buy-out landlords and give the property to the residents and occupants. First establish fair market value, then settle it.

I am OPEN and TRANSPARENT to a mortal fault. I am a Liberal Constitutionalist who believes in an internet-based alternative banking model that will solve the funding problem without taxation. I am a Libertarian who believes in a banking system that provides FREE universal health care and a Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) for the poor, unemployed and retired. I believe in banking systems that allow instantaneous FREE money transfers and fee-FREE retail payment systems. That's good for merchants and that's good for consumers, worldwide. FREEDOM is the name of the game. This is how we get there. This is in the PUBLIC INTEREST. This is an example of a SECULAR CONSTITUTION with very good PHILANTHROPIC and HUMANITARIAN GOALS. This is presented in a way that is accessible to laypeople and common citizens. We need to credit the producers without charging the consumers. We can do that with virtual money.
