For me it would be jet setter extraordinaire and Formula one race car driver Lewis Hamilton. He won the championship last year and came in second this year. He has a home a few miles from where I live and I've seen him around a few times but never talked to him. He keeps himself in tip top physical condition and appears to live a pretty good life.

Dean... Never figured you for an F1 fan. Lewis Hamilton is a good choice. NASCAR for me.

Hi Dean,

My cousin's husband is lead engineer for Hamilton's team. From what I have heard, it's quite stressful for everyone, so not always so glamorous. My hubby is more of an indie guy. Here is he is about to suit up to going out to do a little racing.

For me?  Levil Lavallee.  Awesome Snowmobile Rider/X Games Champ/Record Setter/Husband/Father/Role Model.

I've met him a few times, he has been our guest speaker at conventions twice, a very nice, down to earth man that has turned Snowmobiling into a business.

Dear Friend Dean Moriarty: Great and very intriguing question posed.

For me it would be Moises.

Imagine being at Mount Sinai in the presence of G-d Himself, receiving the Ten Commandments (all all the rest of the Jewish tradition).

Runner ups for me would be Abram the Patriarch. Being given the first commandment to the first Patriarch in Lech Lecha (Get up, go out of the land of your fathers and go to the land which I promise you).

Judah Maccabeus is another strong contender. One of the greatest of warriors in defense of G-d's plan against those who opposed it.

Likewise for Theodore Hertzl, Founder of modern day Zionism.  

All best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful 2017.

Enoch.

One last race for this old Indian.

 

About

It has proven to be one of the biggest attractions of the Shoshone-Bannock Festival and can only be accurately portrayed by witnessing it live and in person.

For more information on Indian Relay in Fort Hall contact (208) 251-7785 or (208) 244-4726.

 

The Indian Relay races have long since been a part of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes culture. The sport actually originated here on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation over a hundred years ago. Many families that participated in the sport decades ago are still participating and passing this legacy on from generation to generation.

The Indian Relay teams consist of three horses and four team members (1 rider, 1 catcher (Mugger), and 2 holders). The rider must complete a lap with each horse riding bareback. The rider must dismount without any help from their team mates and without losing control of their horses.

That looks like a very exciting type of horse racing. I don't think I've ever seen that before. it looks like a fantastic event for everyone there.

We've been doing it for years, Dean. It's been the last 5 years that it's really got popular, with decent sized purses. LOL, when I was racing as a kid it was just for fun, no dough.

I hope it doesn't become too popular and commercialized. It's really cool.

An odd question, If Horse Racing is the sport of Kings, is Drag Racing is the Sport of Queens?

The human perception or understanding of a supreme divinity concept is hardwired in 3D. Such an abstraction would exist far beyond 3D and our power to comprehend. That's the way I see it.

I think you are right. Any God that was actually THE God would have to be beyond our understanding. 

But then, if you were God you would be perpetually misunderstood.  No one to talk to.

"I agree....But that doesn't explain why. "

Nor can it ever. As I stated, we are hardwired and limited into accepting reality in 3D. it is a human limitation. I believe realty exists far beyond what is recognizable and tangible such as is mathematically possible in string theory. This link explains the limitation - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7K5KjOdLD8

Hi Dean,

Really fun article. You should give me a heads up when you post your own material so I can post it on the front page and it's easy to find. 

I really don't want to be anyone else. What I would like to do is travel at will, responsibility free. I often feel like a bird who has had their feathers clipped. 

Also I would like to do my music again, but that is a whole other story.

I want to be a multi-billionaire, with an endless supply of money.  That way I can give to all the needy children of the world.  Give to all children's hospitals, with the designation that they treat all children free. I would give to the organizations that come up wit cures for these children.  I would give to every Indian school I know of so they can get a better education and bring their people out of the abject poverty this country put them in.  

I would give to the Cancer Society with the stipulation that they use it to find a cure for all cancer.  I would give to my neighbor who has a son that will not live to be 17, because of the disease he has.  I would give to every homeless so they can get back on their feet.  I would give to the VA to help all veterans for free, after I get rid of the administration that is corrupt.  Remember I have an endless supply of money, it will never run out.

Maybe that is what G-D/Allah/Budda,all dieties should be.  Active with the people.
