Akalerica – how my brain works

Reports of earthquakes near the border of California/Mexico, an area dubbed Calexico, was on the news the other day 10 April.

 Echo Park has also had an earthquake or two.  When I say Echo Park, I mean that  I felt the 4.0 temblor centered around Lennox, Calif.  I Couldn't feel the Calexico quake.  It's obviously too far, but I did wake up during remnants of a vague nightmarish dream my memory can't exactly get out of my head.  Call a spade a spade, the nightmare was about the "BIG ONE".  The vivid nightmare was the quake.  Can you imagine a dream in which you're experiencing an earthquake?  

Experiencing the moment that a major chunk of California real estate sinks into the ocean?

But I don't recall experiencing any water so much as spinning.  I know, I know.  Earthquakes sway.  Sometimes jolt, but spin?  Nah.  Well, you heard it here first.  It was a rollercoaster effect in which the plate underneath completely detaches itself from the earth and independently rotated similarly to the way the earth rotates on its axis, the only difference being that the whole of Los Angeles was spinning on its own axis.  The end result was the Earth separating from a chunk of land equal to 321K acres of land.  Spinning in a rotation of a compass wheel.  That's a pretty serious quake.

Why?  My brain these days is constantly revolving around the idea that long ago a completely different species of (humans) settled on the earth where unexplained megalithic structures have been discovered all over the world.  Whether these people were aliens or not is probably beyond the scope of consideration, but I like to believe these mysterious beings were far more intelligent than the smartest people today.  I don't really remember my dreams anymore as I tired of experiencing death from violence and now I block everything out.  My imagination from time to time can fantasize worlds in which half the people on the earth live on the surface and half live underground.  Sometimes I stare at reliefs like the Dendera Lights trying to decipher its meaning.  I combine bits and pieces of history that is known about Mayans, Inca and Aztecs such as human sacrificing, an overwhelming understanding of space, the culture of using a Quipu writing system over a written language.  As it's the only evidence I have to piece together the clues of how and why heavy boulders were formed and positioned together in the first place.  Experts claim the Quipu was a method of keeping record of trades, purchases and debts, but what I want to know is what purpose those megalithic structures had if perhaps they weren't just built for shelter.  Dating as far back as 2000 BC, it's only rational that, if the ancient builders sent their megalithic boulders to be carved and shaped overseas the way today's commercial practices exports their products, surely there must be record of this in the Quipus.

It is sad that the US is so far north of Mexico because there's so much to discover about the natives and their relation with the pyramids and megaliths and geoglyphs.  When I sit myself down to have a talk with myself about things, depending on the topic of interest, the main argument in the debates I entertain focus on keeping an open mind on the possibilities of reality.  An example is Mexico, and my idea it is an archaic spelling of America.  If somewhat ludicrous, at least my ideas are based on the practice of portmanteau forming of words.

so it stands to reason that Calexico should read like Akalerica.  "Aka" because SoCal is located in California and Hollyweird is renown for pseudonyms, here being the central birth of alter egos in entertainment.  Who hasn't heard of W.C. Fields, A.K.A. William Claude Dukenfield.  A.K.A. Charles Bogle.  A.K.A. Otis Criblecoblis.  A.K.A. Mahatma Kane Jeeves.

You might be asking, where do you get "Aka"?  Calexico doesn't even begin with the letter A.  Just as there as a handful of English words containing silent letters in their spelling — such as bomb, climb, fasten, knight, answer, etc. — the name of Mexico is probably the first occurrence of a word that contains the complete opposite of silent letters.  Mexico is spelled with a granted, missing A in front of it.  You heard it here first.  Although Mexico is considered the land of Spanish speaking people, there are many indigenous languages.  However, to bring my point across, one must consider the difference of the exclamation "eh" in Spanish, which I believe translates to the English "um".

um: (exclamation) expressing hesitation or a pause in speech.

It's a word heard hundreds of times throughout the day and quite possibly the only word that is disregarded the most in the English language.  When I'm bored, I like watching the news on TV and listen to very important people comment in response to interview questions wherein "um" is constantly used.  I do this in my spare time to make myself laugh at the misfortune befallen highly regarded peeps, like Matt Gaetz for instance, while stuck between sentences to gather their thoughts during interview questions utter such exclamations which function as gaps between things they really want to say.  IMO, I turn their responses around filing in the gaps with my own catchy phrased captions that I assume is what he really wants to say.  And you can see this, for instance, when he makes speeches addressing the allegations of sex trafficking allegations when he seemingly addresses the people as if speaking to his homie's, his comrades, buddies, wife.  There is one thing people do NOT do while speaking this way to people they're comfortable with and that is looking down at their notes, creating an awkward pause where, if no notes were available, he would be uttering the word um.

So, with that in mind, Mexico spells America without the A because Mexicans know how much English speaking people enjoy saying um.  Try it now.  Say Mexico with the exclamation um preceding it.  Um…mexico. 

I have printed the letter X in the hand of fraktur (a.k.a. black letter) to drive this concept home.  You will note that the minuscule form of the letter X in black letter has some characteristics seen in the lower case letter R.  Because X is a letter that isn't used as widely as the letter R in English, very few people would be able to recognize an X letter in black letter style.  Some peeps might even say it looks like an R.  Yes, perhaps it's a stretch, and seeing as I know nothing about the history of Mexico, one might even discard my rants as ravings of a madman.  But who else is going to explain why Spaniards decided on the word Mexico for their country?

I'll end this explanation only to say that Mexico ends with the letter O because Ostrich is pronounced like the first letter is an A (as in America.)
