The Shift And The Hundredth Monkey Effect

__________________________________

__________________________________

The Shift is the awakening of humanity’s heart. This transformation of consciousness, the greatest one ever recorded, first became apparent in the mid-1960s and has been building momentum ever since.

The Shift is a collective transformation consisting of the sum of each individual’s step into the New Reality. Each person, in their own time, is moving forward into a stage of consciousness which brings a wider vista and an awareness which springs from the heart. When enough people’s primary attention becomes focused through their heart chakras, then the ‘hundredth monkey effect’ will occur.

The Hundredth Monkey Effect was first introduced by biologist Lyall Watson in his 1980 book, ‘Lifetide.’ He reported that Japanese primatologists, who were studying Macaques monkeys in the wild in the 1950s, had stumbled upon a surprising phenomenon.

His book was soon followed up with a deeply inspired work by Ken Keyes in 1981, called “The Hundredth Monkey Effect.” In this, Ken Keyes made an impassioned appeal for an end to the Cold War and its policy of mutually assured destruction. Here, in the words of Ken Keyes, is a description of the key elements of the Hundredth Monkey Effect:

“The Japanese monkey, Macaca fuscata, had been observed in the wild for a period of over 30 years. In 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.

An 18-month-old female named Imo found she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned this new way and they taught their mothers too. This cultural innovation was gradually picked up by various monkeys before the eyes of the scientists.

Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable. Only the adults who imitated their children learned this social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.

Then something startling took place. In the autumn of 1958, a certain number of Koshima monkeys were washing sweet potatoes -- the exact number is not known. Let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes.

Let's further suppose that later that morning, the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes. Then it happened! By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing sweet potatoes before eating them. The added energy of this hundredth monkey somehow created an ideological breakthrough!

But notice. A most surprising thing observed by these scientists was that the habit of washing sweet potatoes then jumped over the sea –

Colonies of monkeys on other islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama began washing their sweet potatoes. Thus, when a certain critical number achieves an awareness, this new awareness may be communicated from mind to mind. Although the exact number may vary, this Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon means that when only a limited number of people know of a new way, it may remain the conscious property of these people.

But there is a point at which if only one more person tunes-in to a new awareness, a field is strengthened so that this awareness is picked up by almost everyone!”

Lyall Watson had originally researched and assembled the story from the available testimonies of the primate researchers. Because the phenomenon took the researchers so much by surprise, they had not counted how many monkeys it took to trigger this effect. So, Watson proposed an arbitrary figure of ninety-nine monkeys, and said that one more, the so-called one-hundredth monkey, would then provide the critical mass of consciousness necessary to trigger the effect.

The new behavior pattern spread to most, but not all, of the monkeys. Older monkeys, in particular, remained steadfast in their established behavior patterns and resisted change. When the new behavior pattern suddenly appeared among monkey troupes on other islands, only a few monkeys on those islands picked up on the new idea. The ones most receptive to new ideas started imitating the new behavior and demonstrating it to the impressionable younger ones. Thus, they too began their own path towards their eventual hundredth monkey effect.

How the 100th Monkey Effect Works
__________________________________

The mechanism for this transference of ideas works the same way for monkeys as it does for all sentient beings. We exist within an atmosphere of global mind. The human brain is constantly receiving and transmitting mental pictures and information to and from that mental atmosphere in which we are immersed.

The global mind, otherwise known as Jung’s collective unconscious, does not cease to function because a few skeptics don’t like its effects. It functions just like it always has, passing information from one individual to another based upon their common frequency of consciousness. If progressive monkeys had a new idea, then so did other progressive monkeys on other islands. They resonated at the same frequency of consciousness.

Inventions often occur at the same time by inventors who are not in physical contact with each other. For example, in 1941, Les Paul designed and built the first solid-body electric guitar just when Leo Fender of Fender Musical Instruments was doing exactly the same thing.

Have you ever had an idea, then seen other people express or use that idea. You probably said, “Hey! I thought of that first!” Well, that’s the way the global mind works. It’s an atmosphere that you share with all other sentient beings, but you tune in especially to the particular topics and frequencies of mind that interest you the most.

What This means to The Shift
__________________________________

When enough people have gone through their personal version of The Shift to the new consciousness, then a critical mass will form and suddenly everyone will become aware of the New Reality and its heart-centered values.

That is the day when heart-centered values will become the focus of everyday thinking for the vast majority of people. That is the day when humanity will begin to look back on what has changed and realize that a massive shift has occured.

The Conspiracy Theory of History Revisited

By Murray N. Rothbard

For it is vital to the continued rule of the State apparatus that
it have legitimacy and even sanctity in the eyes of the public, and it is vital to that sanctity that our politicians and bureaucrats be deemed to be disembodied spirits solely devoted to the "public good." Once let the cat out of the bag that these spirits are all too often grounded in the solid earth of advancing a set of economic interests through use of the State, and the basic mystique of government begins to collapse.

Obama is Selling, Naomi Wolf? Bruce Eisner? wtf

Naomi Wolf, Bruce Eisner, etc. It seems seeing through the bullshit of consensus reality on some parts doesn't mean you will on all (well duh, but hey). Who the hell can take Naomi Wolf seriously anymore with her NWO warnings if she voted for a fucking NWO puppet? Even people who are into conspiracy and consciousness still fall for Obama. If you talk to these people as to why, they will either ignore you, censor you, defend their beliefs passionately (not rationally) or start up a stream of bullshit.
I went to the consciousness site deoxy.org forums when I could (cause I was and am still banned for 'disinfo', while I was actually mocking Leary disinfo... but hey, if you can't read...) and a handful of people were in a thread praising a speech by Obama on youtube. So of course, I had to check it from start to finish to see if it could be true. What did I hear? Just the same bullshit about change, nevermind what change. Ripping off earlier speeches by whoever. Incredible. If you still don't know why people have problems with Obama, maybe you could check his freaking voting record and the people and organizations he's associated with.

Journey to the Center of your Mind

Peace is not achieved by controlling nations,
but mastering our thoughts.
~John Harricharan~

The mind is its own place,
and in itself,
can make heaven of Hell,
and a hell of Heaven.
~John Milton~

The purpose of learning is growth,
and our minds, unlike our bodies,
can continue growing as we continue to live.
~Mortimer Adler~

The mind I love must have wild places,
a tangled orchard where dark damsons
drop in the heavy grass,
an overgrown little wood,
the chance of a snake or two,
a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of,
and paths threaded with flowers
planted by the mind.
~Katherine Mansfield~

Nothing is at last sacred but the
integrity of your own mind.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

A mind at peace,
a mind centered and not
focused on harming others,
is stronger than any physical
force in the universe.
~Wayne Dyer~

A mind that is stretched by a new experience
can never go back to its old dimensions.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr~

The greatest discovery of my generation
is that human beings can alter their lives
by altering their attitude of mind.
~William James~

Sit in reverie,
and watch the changing color
of the waves
that break upon the idle
seashore of the mind.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

Without meditation,
and without a relationship to your mind,
you fail to use the power of the mind.
You fail to rely on your self.
You complicate your approach.
You do not use the beautiful designs
given to you by birthright in this body,
that link the effectiveness of body,
mind, soul and you.
~Yogi Bhajan~

The mind is like an iceberg,
it floats with one-seventh of
its bulk above water.
~Sigmund Freud~

All sorts of bodily diseases
are produced
by half-used minds.
~George Bernard Shaw~

Men are not prisoners of fate,
but prisoners of their own minds.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt~

Body and mind,
like man and wife,
do not always agree to die together.
~Charles Caleb Colton~

It is discouraging to try to
penetrate a mind like yours.
You ought to get it out
and dance on it.
That would take some of
the rigidity out of it.
~Mark Twain~

Pentagon sets its sights on social networking websites

NewScientist.com article

"I AM continually shocked and appalled at the details people voluntarily post online about themselves." So says Jon Callas, chief security officer at PGP, a Silicon Valley-based maker of encryption software. He is far from alone in noticing that fast-growing social networking websites such as MySpace and Friendster are a snoop's dream.

New Scientist has discovered that Pentagon's National Security Agency, which specialises in eavesdropping and code-breaking, is funding research into the mass harvesting of the information that people post about themselves on social networks. And it could harness advances in internet technology - specifically the forthcoming "semantic web" championed by the web standards organisation W3C - to combine data from social networking websites with details such as banking, retail and property records, allowing the NSA to build extensive, all-embracing personal profiles of individuals.

Social Networks are like the Eye

Douglas Rushkoff is working hard on his new book, but wants you to check the below article out, he also has a lenghty comment on there:

SOCIAL NETWORKS ARE LIKE THE EYE
A Talk with Nicholas A. Christakis
It is customary to think about fashions in things like clothes or music as spreading in a social network. But it turns out that all kinds of things, many of them quite unexpected, can flow through social networks, and this process obeys certain rules we are seeking to discover. We've been investigating the spread of obesity through a network, the spread of smoking cessation through a network, the spread of happiness through a network, the spread of loneliness through a network, the spread of altruism through a network. And we have been thinking about these kinds of things while also keeping an eye on the fact that networks do not just arise from nothing or for nothing. Very interesting rules determine their structure.

Simpsons 612 Homer the Great (Stonecutters)


Simpsons 612 Homer the Great (full episode)

"Homer the Great" is the 12th episode of The Simpsons’ sixth season. It features the Stonecutters, a fictional secret society which is an overt parody of the Freemasons. Featuring Patrick Stewart.

Stonecutters song:
Who controls the British crown?
Who keeps the metric system down?
We do! We do!
Who keeps Atlantis off the maps?
Who keeps the Martians under wraps?
We do! We do!
Who holds back the electric car?
Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star?
We do! We do!
Who robs the cave fish of their site?
Who rigs every Oscar night?
We do! We do!

The Art of not being Offended

There is an ancient and well-kept secret to happiness which the Great Ones have known for centuries. They rarely talk about it, but they use it all the time, and it is fundamental to good mental health. This secret is called The Fine Art of Not Being Offended. In order to truly be a master of this art, one must be able to see that every statement, action and reaction of another human being is the sum result of their total life experience to date.

In other words, the majority of people in our world say and do what they do from their own set of fears, conclusions, defenses and attempts to survive. Most of it, even when aimed directly at us, has nothing to do with us. Usually, it has more to do with all the other times, and in particular the first few times, that this person experienced a similar situation, usually when they were young.

Yes, this is psychodynamic. But let's face it, we live in a world where psychodynamics are what make the world go around. An individual who wishes to live successfully in the world as a spiritual person really needs to understand that psychology is as spiritual as prayer. In fact, the word psychology literally means the study of the soul.

Into the Wild

The true story of Chistopher McCandless
directed & screenplay by Sean Penn

Imdb:
After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life.

Here is a great page with excellent quotes from the movie:

"Mr. Franz I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don't want one."

"I read somewhere... how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong... but to feel strong."

"The core of mans' spirit comes from new experiences."

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."

"If you want something in life, reach out and grab it."

Into the Wild - Trailer

"Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness... give me truth." (expanded on the original quote by Henry David Thoreau)

"Two years he walks the earth.
No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, 'cause "the West is the best." And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild."

Esoteric Agenda


Esoteric Agenda

There is an Esoteric Agenda behind every facet of life that was once believed to be disconnected. There is an Elite faction guiding most every Political, Economic, Social, Corporate, some Non-Governmental or even Anti-Establishment Organizations. This film uses the hard work and research of professionals in every field helping to expose this agenda put the future of this planet back into the hands of the people.

Why People Will Believe Almost Anything

We are the most conditioned, programmed beings the world has ever known. Not only are our thoughts and attitudes continually being shaped and molded; our very awareness of the whole design seems like it is being subtly and inexorably erased. The doors of our perception are carefully and precisely regulated. Who cares, right?

It is an exhausting and endless task to keep explaining to people how most issues of conventional wisdom are scientifically implanted in the public consciousness by a thousand media clips per day. In an effort to save time, I would like to provide just a little background on the handling of information in this country.

Once the basic principles are illustrated about how our current system of media control arose historically, the reader might be more apt to question any given story in today's news.

If everybody believes something, it's probably wrong. We call that Conventional Wisdom. In America, conventional wisdom that has mass acceptance is usually contrived: somebody paid for it.

'Tony Blair gave order to kill Diana', Al Fayed tells crash inquest

Al Fayed: Royals conspired to slaughter Diana and Dodi. Cover-up 'involved every member of the establishment.' Prince Philip is a 'Nazi' and 'racist.' Tony Blair personally sanctioned the murder of Diana, the inquest heard today.

Mohamed al-Fayed said the man who called Diana the "Peoples Princess" had instigated the "horrendous and horrific action". Mr Fayed said the crash had been orchestrated by MI6 and French intelligence.

Mr Fayed's claim came today as he denounced the Royal Family and virtually the entire Establishment over the deaths of Diana and his son Dodi.

Physicist Neil Turok: Big Bang Wasn't the Beginning

For decades, physicists have accepted the notion that the universe started with the Big Bang, an explosive event at the literal beginning of time. Now, computational physicist Neil Turok is challenging that model -- and some scientists are taking him seriously.

According to Turok, who teaches at Cambridge University, the Big Bang represents just one stage in an infinitely repeated cycle of universal expansion and contraction. Turok theorizes that neither time nor the universe has a beginning or end.

Angel Tech Course

ANGEL TECH: The 8-Circuit Brain Prospectus
Based in the law of octaves, the 8-Circuit Brain was revisioned as a system for intelligence increase by Timothy Leary ("Info-Psychology"), given socio-political context by Robert Anton Wilson ("Prometheus Rising") and expanded into practical applications for personal integration by Antero Alli ("Angel Tech"). This legacy informs a comprehensive study and practice of dynamic techniques capable of triggering actual results that can be measured, repeated and developed on your own. All eight circuits will be covered, as well as their specific internal supports and, the initiation into and out of Chapel Perilous. Once understood and redefined in your own terms, this eight circuit model can become an open-ended system for precision tracking and interpretation of signals within oneself, the world and beyond. If you are ready to test and nurture the existing conditions of your autonomy and integrity, while increasing your intelligence, this course may be for you.

The Online Course starts March 3 at the Maybe Logic Academy.

Robert Anton Wilson Quotes

Dedroidify RAW page
This is a temporary page that will get better with time, just wanted to group quotes and the on-site dedroidify pages on one page as soon as possible, added some more quotes:

"'Is,' 'is.' 'is' — the idiocy of the word haunts me. If it were abolished, human thought might begin to make sense. I don't know what anything 'is'; I only know how it seems to me at this moment."
The Historical Illuminatus as spoken by Sigismundo Celine

The Western World has been brainwashed by Aristotle for the last 2,500 years. The unconscious, not quite articulate, belief of most Occidentals is that there is one map which adequately represents reality. By sheer good luck, every Occidental thinks he or she has the map that fits.
Guerrilla ontology, to me, involves shaking up that certainty. I use what in modern physics is called the "multi-model" approach, which is the idea that there is more than one model to cover a given set of facts. As I've said, novel writing involves learning to think like other people. My novels are written so as to force the reader to see things through different reality grids rather than through a single grid. It's important to abolish the unconscious dogmatism that makes people think their way of looking at reality is the only sane way of viewing the world.
My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone, but agnosticism about everything. If one can only see things according to one's own belief system, one is destined to become virtually deaf, dumb, and blind. It's only possible to see people when one is able to see the world as others see it. That's what guerrilla ontology is — breaking down this one-model view and giving people a multi-model perspective.
(from Searching For Cosmic Intelligence" - interview by Jeffrey Elliot)

Whatever the Thinker thinks, the Prover will prove. And if the Thinker thinks passionately enough, the Prover will prove the thought so conclusively that you will never talk a person out of such a belief, even if it is something as remarkable as the notion that there is a gaseous vertebrate of astronomical heft ("GOD") who will spend all eternity torturing people who do not believe in his religion.


(Thanks to hecKtör Dangüs, esq. for the image)

A poll taking by the wallstreet journal and the ny times and the christian science monitor, together they showed that 75 percent of the public doesn't believe what they read in the newspapers anymore, the percentage who don't believe what they see on tv news is even higher, it's like 85 percent.
We all know the bastards are lying to us and they get away with it because people are used to yes or no, every 4 years to give us the sense that democracy still exists they give us 2 goddamn motherfucking liars, I like shakespearian english, down to earth english that describes what I'm talking about. I don't like prissy little euphemisms, so they give us 2 goddamn motherfucking lying bastards sons of bitches and they say choose between them you are free, you can have a choice, which lying bastard do you prefer to the other lying bastard?

Obviously, the faster we process information, the more rich and complex our models or glosses — our reality-tunnels — will become. Resistance to new information, however, has a strong neurological foundation in all animals, as indicated by studies of imprinting and conditioning. Most animals, including most domesticated primates (humans) show a truly staggering ability to "ignore" certain kinds of information — that which does not "fit" their imprinted/conditioned reality-tunnel. We generally call this "conservatism" or "stupidity", but it appears in all parts of the political spectrum, and in learned societies as well as in the Ku Klux Klan. (from Quantum Psychology)

Framing Muslims and Locking Up Their Money

by Cynthia McKinney
The U.S. government has for years been engaged in a witch hunt against Muslim charities, seizing assets and persons on little or manufactured evidence of "terrorist" activities. Meanwhile, blatant spying on behalf of Israel goes unprosecuted, and is even rewarded with promotions to the highest, most sensitive levels of government. Human rights cease to exist in a legal free-fire zone in which all things Muslim or Arab are deemed subversive. All pretense of constitutional government vanishes when institutions and individuals are targeted based on ethnicity and religion. The real conspiracy against so-called "American values" is headquartered in U.S. law enforcement and "security" agencies that "wreak fear and terror inside this country's Muslim community."

I love theories about Tutankhamen, Maurice Cotterell's research indicates he might have been an enlightened master and left loads of clues in his tomb concerning the Sunspot Cycle and end of 2012. Just like Pacal from the Mayas. Then you can discuss wether they were spiritually enlightened or used psychedelics to acquire the knowledge. Others may discard both as merely 'bloodline'. etc, etc.

US Snake Invasion Global Warming Panic!

Pythons Could Slither North as Climate Warms
Hehe, just kidding... oh noes "global warming" is sending snakes to North America to kill adult humans.

The pythons, which can grow more then 20 feet long and weight more than 250 pounds, are strangling and gulping down everything from endangered rodents to deer, panther cubs, opossums and alligators. "This is a quantum leap" in snake size, said Rodda. "The largest snake in North America is the bull snake or indigo snake, neither of which exceeds nine feet." Burmese pythons, a subspecies of the Indian python, can take in much larger prey than any North American native snake species. "Alligators eat them and they eat alligators." Cool :p

Dr Jewel Pookrum talks about 7 Circuits of the Brain

Why 7 instead of 8? Why not :p
But this is either incredibly old or a bit flawed.


Vid 3: Circuit 1 Bio-Survival. The Reptilian Brain, Reptilians & Insects


Vid 4: Circuit 2 Social Moral?

In Leary's model, that's circuit 4
She also made a mistake about heroin (circuit 1) and alcohol (circuit 2)


Vid 5: Circuit 3 Logical and Circuit 4 Emotional Territorial The Mammalian Brain. 5th Intuition Circuit. 6th circuit: Psi & other dimensions, tempral lobes. 7th Circuit: frontal lobes, highest level of knowing
Again, Circuit 2 & 4 are interchanged here.
Marijuana does not affect the Emotional Circuit but the Fifth Neurosomatic Intuitive Circuit. She also mistakingly says 6th instead of 7th when talking about the 7th. And of course in Leary and RAW's models include 8 Circuits (I saw 7 somewhere before, I'm not aware of the entire history and evolution of the model's development.) and 7 is the collective unconscious and 8 the cosmic quantum circuit.

Spy Satellite Spots Lost Mayan Cities

GUATEMALA CITY

Ancient Mayan astronomers aligned their soaring temples with the stars and now modern archeologists have found the ruins of hidden cities in the Guatemalan jungle by peering down from space.

Archaeologists investigating the collapse of the Mayan civilization said Wednesday that they used a satellite to uncover the ruins of hidden cities in the Guatemalan jungle. The satellite can see through clouds and forests to reveal differences in the vegetation below. The image here was colored to help highlight patterns of jungle growth.

Ghostbuster called in after sewage workers stalked by 'zombie' in underground tunnels

If there's something strange in the neighborhood

It sounds like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster. But staff at a sewage works have called in a ghostbuster because they are being stalked by a zombie-like figure who roams the underground tunnels.

Workers at Southern Water's treatment plant in Eastbourne, East Sussex, said they have been scared to enter tunnels after being followed about by a "humanoid figure" as they went about their jobs.

Mark Wey, a sewage treatment worker, got permission from his bosses to hire a paranormal investigator to launch an investigation into the sewage spirits.

Today I said farewell to my grandmother for the last time. I didn't know her very well, that side of the family isn't that close. Though I miss her. Bless whatever for keeping her final earthly suffering to a minimum. She was a true viking. May the viking ship lead her on a nice path through the bardos.

Brain control headset for gamers


article link
Gamers will soon be able to interact with the virtual world using their thoughts and emotions alone. A neuro headset which interprets the interaction of neurons in the brain will go on sale later this year. "It picks up electrical activity from the brain and sends wireless signals to a computer," said Tan Le, president of US/Australian firm Emotiv. "It allows the user to manipulate a game or virtual environment naturally and intuitively," she added.

The brain is made up of about 100 billion nerve cells, or neurons, which emit an electrical impulse when interacting. The headset implements a technology known as non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) to read the neural activity.

Could spiritual healing actually work?

article link
... For decades, researchers have dismissed cases such as Ailsa's as pure hokum. But now, in an astonishing about-turn, scientists in the U.S. and UK have compiled a dossier of evidence that might - just might - show that prayer and spiritual healing are not just quackery after all.

Professor Harald Walach, a psychologist from the University of Northampton, says:
"We should take this phenomenon seriously even if we do not understand it. To ignore it would be unscientific. Our work shows that there is a significant effect."

For despite it being the most widely practised alternative remedy, science has only recently begun to investigate whether spiritual healing actually works. Scientists and doctors simply assumed that it didn't.

Fnord!

The scraggly 22-year-old from Newport, Maine, started writing the nonsense word "fnord" on buildings, signs and sidewalks around town in early 2003. He estimates there are now upwards of 1,000 such tags spray-painted and written in marker throughout Portland, and countless more in other parts of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

According to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, the word fnord originally appeared in the Principia Discordia, a cult treatise written in 1965. The term was popularized in the Illuminatus! trilogy by sci-fi writers Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson. In Shea and Wilson's work, the word is said to appear in newspaper and magazine articles about current events, and to cause a vague sense of unease in readers who've been programmed not to consciously notice it.

Podcast 128 - McKenna: "The State of the Stone"

In this 1995 talk, Terence McKenna gives one of his more hopeful talks about love and the state of humanity at the end of the millenium.

Podcast 127 - Leary: “How To Use Your Head”

"Now from the standpoint of the strategy of the genetic material, every living species is simply a creative solution to a packaging problem."

"This [early imprinting of young ducklings on orange basketballs instead of mother ducks] is both funny and tragic, because it raises the question, in the case of the human being, what accidental orange basketball have you and I been exposed to early in life?"

"At times it seems to us that one of the functions of the mind is to rationalize and protect an accidental early imprint."

"We suggest that psychedelic drugs may be seen as chemical agents which temporarily suspend your old imprints."

"The thing which excites us these days is the corollary concept of psychedelic RE-imprinting."

"I think that anyone who doesn’t experience, at some moment during their psychedelic sessions, and intense awe-full fear has been cheated by their psychiatrist or their bootlegger."

"LSD is the most powerful aphrodisiac ever known to man."

Reality Sandwich: Truth of Reality articles

Reality Sandwich
Your Money and Your Life
The financial crisis is an opening for a deeper discussion on how money functions in our society. We tend to forget that money is, fundamentally, a social agreement, not something natural or elemental.

Virtual Reality and Hallucination
Our understanding of what is or isn't "real" is being challenged, thanks to hyper-connectivity, hyper-conductivity, and processor speed. How is our personal sense of "reality" being transformed by new technological highs?

Truth and Magic in the Third Dimension
Once I would have been hungry for proof; show me incontrovertible evidence that the paranormal even exists, I would demand. Today I am no longer hungry for certainty. Instead of picking out every logical flaw, I strive to hear whatever truth lurks within.

The Mindscape of Alan Moore - Perception

Zen is Boring

By Brad Warner
Source: Sit Down and Shut Up
Let's face it. Zen is boring. You couldn't find a duller, more tedious practice than Zazen. The philosophy is dry and unexciting. It's amazing to me anyone reads this page at all. Don't you people know you could be playing Tetris, right now? That there are a million free porno sites out there? Get a life, why don't you?!

Joshu Sasaki, a Zen teacher from the Rinzai Sect, once said that Buddhist teachers always try to make students long for the Buddha World, but that if the students knew how really dry and tasteless the Buddha World actually was, they'd never want to go.

He's right. Look at Zen teachers. Not a one of them has any sense of fashion. They sit around staring at blank walls. Ask them about levitation, they won't tell you. Ask them about life after death, they change the subject. Ask them about miracles and they start spouting nonsense about carrying buckets of water and chopping up fire wood. They go to bed early and wake up early. Zen is a philosophy for nerds.

Boredom is important. Most of your life is dull, tasteless and boring. If you practice Zazen, you learn a lot about boredom. I remember the first time I sat Zazen, I was real excited. I figured I'd be seeing visions of four armed Krishnas descending from the Heavens, or I'd be fading into The Void just like the old Beatles song, or reach Nirvana (whatever that was) or some great wonderful thing.

But the clock just ticked away, my legs started aching, and stupid thoughts kept drifting by. Maybe I wasn't doing it right, I thought. But no, year after year it was the same. Boring, boring, boring. After almost 20 years it's still boring as Hell.

People hate their ordinary lives. We want something better. This, our day to day life of drudgery and work, is boring, dull and ordinary, we think. But someday, someday...

There's an episode of The Monkees where Mike Nesmith says that when he was in high school he used to walk out on the school's empty stage with a guitar in his hands thinking "Someday, someday." Then he said that now (now being 1967, at the height of the Monkees fame) he walks out on stage in front of thousands of fans and thinks "Someday, someday."

That's the way life is. It's never going to be perfect. Whatever "someday" you imagine, it will ever come. Never. No matter what it is. No matter how well you build your fantasy or how carefully you follow all the steps necessary to achieve it. Even if it comes true exactly the way you planned, you'll end up just like Mike Nesmith. Someday, someday... I guarantee you.

Your life will change. That's for sure. But it won't get any better and it won't get any worse. How can you compare now to the past? What do you know about the past? You don't have a clue! You have no idea at all what yesterday was really like, let alone last week or ten years ago. The future? Forget about it...

People long for big thrills. Peak experiences. Some people come to Zen expecting that Enlightenment will be the Ultimate Peak Experience. The Mother of All Peak Experiences. But real enlightenment is the most ordinary of the ordinary.

Once I had an amazing vision. I saw myself transported through time and space. Millions, no, billions, trillions, Godzillions of years passed. Not figuratively, but literally. Whizzed by. I found myself at the very rim of time and space, a vast giant being composed of the living minds and bodies of every thing that ever was. It was an incredibly moving experience. Exhilarating. I was high for weeks. Finally I told Nishijima Sensei about it. He said it was nonsense. Just my imagination. I can't tell you how that made me feel. Imagination? This was as real an experience as any I've ever had. I just about cried. Later on that day I was eating a tangerine. I noticed how incredibly lovely a thing it was. So delicate. So amazingly orange. So very tasty. So I told Nishijima about that. That experience, he said, was enlightenment.

You need a teacher like that. The world needs lots more teachers like that. Countless teachers would have interpreted my experience as a merging of my Atman with God, as a portent of great and wonderful things, would have praised my spiritual growth and given me pointers on how to go even further. And I would have been suckered right in to that, let me tell you! Woulda fallen for it hook line and sinker, boy howdy. If a teacher doesn't shatter your illusions he's doing you no favors at all.

Boredom is what you need. Merging with the Mind of God at the Edge of the Universe, that's excitement. That's what we're all into this Zen thing for, right? Eating tangerines? Come on, dude! What could be more boring than eating a tangerine?

Some years ago some psychologists did a study in which they sat some Buddhists monks and some regular folks in a room and wired them up to EEG machines to record their brain activity. They told everyone to relax, then introduced a repetitive stimulus, a loudly ticking clock, into the room. The normal folks' EEG showed that their brains stopped reacting the stimulus after a few seconds. But the Buddhists just kept on mentally registering the tick every time it happened. Psychologists and journalists never quite know how to interpret that finding, though it's often cited. It's a simple matter. Buddhists pay attention to their lives. Ordinary folks figure they have better things to think about.

If you really take a look at your ordinary boring life, you'll discover something truly wonderful. Our regular old pointless lives are incredibly joyful -- amazingly, astoundingly, relentlessly, mercilessly joyful.

You don't need to do a damned thing to experience such joy either. People think they need big experiences, interesting experiences. And it's true that gigantic, traumatic experiences sometimes bring people, for a fleeting moment, into a kind of enlightened state. That's why such experiences are so desired.

But it wears off fast and you're right back out there looking for the next thrill. You don't need to take drugs, blow up buildings, win the Indy 500 or walk on the moon.

You don't need to go hang-gliding over the Himalayas, you don't need to screw your luscious and oh-so-willing secretary or party all night with the beautiful people.

You don't need visions of merging with the totality of the Universe.

Just be what you are, where you are. Clean the toilet. Walk the dog. Do your work. That's the most magical thing there is.

If you really want to merge with God, that's the way to do it. This moment. You sitting there with your hand in your underwear and potato chip crumbs on your chin, scrolling down your computer screen thinking "This guy's out of his mind."

This very moment is Enlightenment. This moment has never come before and once it's gone, it's gone forever. You are this moment. This moment is you. This very moment is you merging with the total Universe, with God Himself.

The life you're living right now has joys even God will never know.

The End of the Matrix


The End of the Matrix
I know you're out there, I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid, you're afraid of us, you're afraid of change. I don't know the future, I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end, I came here to tell you how it's going to begin.

I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see, I'm going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without boarders or boundaries, a world where anything is possible where we go from there, is a choice I leave to you.
