C: Honesty, if you know why I am here, will you tell me?

H: That’s not really my style, but by the time I am done with you, you will be telling me the reason you are here, although I already know the answer. Consider this a test and me as your teacher.

C: What kind of a test?

H: I will ask you some simple questions about you and your beliefs. You will find out precisely what you are by your answers.

C: What is your first question?

H: It’s sort of a loaded series of questions, but here goes: What is your belief about the origin of life and the universe. You have asked me why you are here, but I want to ask you, why do you think that you are here? And not just that, why are any of us here at all? Why is there…

Episode 2. Proving Causal Will in Real Time

Today I’m going to show how our wills are causal, and not free, by looking at the matter in real time. We’re going to look at what’s happening right now, and what happened preceding the show. We’ll start with the idea that I’m sitting here alone doing the show, when the plan was to do…

Chandler’s Honesty Part 4: A Horse in the Night

Chastity White Rose

Part 4 of the unicorn story is available for sale for $3 on Smashwords.

And Amazon.

I believe it can be enjoyed standalone but also makes a lot more sense for someone who has already read the first 3 parts in the original book.

Check out the Chandler’s Honesty page on my blog to read the first 2 parts for free on my blog. The story of how I met Honesty the unicorn is rather interesting and quite personally transforming. The cover image that shows on Smashwords and on Amazon is a variation of the first book cover combined with my midnight rainbow picture from years ago. The subtitle “A Horse in the Night” is a parody of “A Thief in the Night” which symbolizes how Honesty came into my life when I least expected at the lowest most depressing points in my life and acted as a therapist…

Sunday Podcast of 2-7-2021

Chastity White Rose

I recently did a livestream with many guests. It was one of our best so far and I have made it available on multiple platforms.

The secret of how videos like this are possible is because I recently discovered a new livestreaming service. Streamyard allows me to have shows that are streamed live and people can comment on them while they are being streamed and recorded. It’s now the fastest way to get a message out in video form and I am slowly learning how to use it.

At this time I am concerned about free speech and I do not like that posts are being deleted because they don’t agree with the political views of social media platforms. You may have heard about what happened to force Parler to be shut down. I want to give people a way to speak who may…

Confused Virgin Comedy Cringe

Chastity White Rose

This video is made possible by Streamyard, the easiest browser based live stream software I have ever used. This was streamed to my YouTube channel live but I downloaded the recording so that I could also upload it to many places and have great backups.

In this live stream, I read my entire first book, commented on each chapter, and even replied to the comments I was getting in real time from user Hungry Billy Bruce. It would be my most interesting video I have ever done so far. Confessions of a Confused Virgin was the first book I ever wrote and was chosen for this video because it’s the shortes of all of my books as well.

You can find this book and others in ebook form on my Smashwords profile.

Additionally you can buy a paperback of this same book on Amazon.

If you like this book…

First Book is Now Free

I republished my very first book on Smashwords and made it totally free. It’s especially funny if someone reads my first book and my recent book Chandler’s Honesty and sees the massive difference in my belief system. It would be really funny if someday I wrote a sequel to the original book. But it’s been 8 years since I pubished this book and I’m still very much a confused virgin.

The Unicorn Book has Arrived!

Chastity White Rose

My latest book with Honesty the Unicorn is available on both Amazon and Smashwords.
Amazon has both the paperback and kindle editions and Smashwords also has more ebook formats including epub which can be opened in iBooks on any iPhone.
I very much hope that my friends who are brave enough to read it can write some reviews.

Chapter 7: The Knowledge of Good and Evil

Chastity White Rose

The following is a chapter from part 3 of my unicorn story. Eventually all 3 parts will be combined into a published book. I do not usually have time for my writing but I suffered a bad knee injury at work and cannot return to work for awhile.

This chapter contains a lot of history of the time when I joined the Navy. Most of this has never been told before.

Chapter 7: The Knowledge of Good and Evil

C: Honesty, we have talked about the importance of doing the right thing and learning from the reasons that we act as we do, but how do I know for sure which is the right thing to do when it is not always clear?

H: Can you give an example of a time when it was unclear what you should do about something?

C: Yes, I remember very clearly the time…

Chandler’s Honesty Part 2: Chandler and a Unicorn talk Religion

Chapter 0: Confusion

Chandler was confused. He was confused about many things. At 31 years of age, he was still wondering who he was. He knew what he could do. He worked at Hy-Vee and took dance lessons. He also experimented with computer programming and geometric art. He was happy about the things he could do well but there was something that annoyed him. He had certain thoughts about his identity. Was he merely the sum of the things he could do or was he something beyond that?

One night, as he went to sleep, he wished for someone he could talk to about his thoughts that would not criticize him and freak out. He had come to face some of his greatest fears once before in another dream where he had met a unicorn that was surprisingly wise. No…

Chandler’s Honesty Part 1: Chandler Meets A Unicorn

Chastity White Rose

The Following is part 1 of a story I wrote most likely around 2017 and 2018. The chapters were written at different times in my life as I had difficult struggles to overcome. No human could ever have been as helpful as Honesty the Unicorn of Truth.

To make sure this story is not lost. I am making it public for the first time. I have been much too busy to write much in the past year but I think this is a story that must be told, because it is the truth, and the truth about who I am and how I really felt back then is what set me free.

Chapter 0: Something is Missing

Chandler Klebs was an old man. At least he felt old. He was 31 years old and had a good job and was involved in…

Programming without the Mouse using Vim

Chastity White Rose

I have achieved a major milestone. I can now work on my programming even when my mouse fails! Vim is a great text editor with syntax highlighting that also allows for running commands! In my case I use :!make to run the script that compiles and runs my code!

My “Infinity Checkerboard” project has come very far from what it was. I can do incredible things as I learn more of the SDL library. Although this game does not contain much, the source code is very small and only requires the base SDL library with no extensions and a working C compiler.

I hope that others benefit from this video both as an example of the power of SDL and the C programming language but also as an example of using Vim as a text editor.
