Daily Dedroidify: Holodeck
In case you weren't paying attention, yesterday in the dreaming post I said... LUCID DREAMING = YOUR VERY OWN HOLODECK

Instead of buttons though you use your imagination! So it's even better! I've flown like superman, I've gotten on hoverboards,... and you can do anything you can imagine too! Interested in finding out how to lucid dream now? I thought so, get on it!

Holodeck song (by Bob Picardo)

From the Article: How to Have a Lucid Dream?

Once you get your dream journal going and are able to recall at least two dreams a night then you can start the steps to having a lucid dream. There are many ways to key yourself to the fact that you are dreaming but I will discuss a couple of the easiest for beginners.

First there is Reality Testing. How reality testing is done, is you ask yourself “Am I dreaming?” Finding that out in a dream is not always the easiest thing to do, but is usually quite obvious if you are dreaming or not. If you find yourself in an unfamiliar place, or doing something or seeing something that will not likely happen in reality, you will know that you are dreaming. Now if you are in your bed or in your own house, then you can try looking at something like a clock or reading a book or something, look away, then look back and see if the time is the same or the words you read are the same. Try changing the color of something just by thinking about it. Ask yourself this question “Am I dreaming?” several times during the day, then you will be more apt to ask yourself this in a dream.

Another way to realize that you are dreaming in a dream is to recognize a Dreamsign. When your recognize this dreamsign you will realize that you are dreaming. (ie. A pink elephant, meeting deceased people, or magically flying.) By keeping a dream journal and going back and finding things that are common in your dreams, you can choose a dreamsign that is unique to you. So when you see your dreamsign you will realize your experience as a dream, and can then further the experiments or work you would like to do in your dream.

Jokes on Wilders

I just wanna comment on how hopeful I find this hole situation that the world is reacting in indignation of this sad attempt to further demonize islam.

In case you were on some other planet or wisely avoid the mainstream media (:p), a dutch fascist called Geert Wilders made a retarded anti-western islamification movie, using retarded footage of the terrorist attacks, oops I mean the false flag operations carried out by white western governments to demonize muslims & invade their countries for their resources. I wonder if Wilders has investigated the attacks and is acting out of ignorance or following an agenda. There was only one protest action in the Netherlands yesterday, some kids with a banner saying "Wilders is a zionist" hehe, excellent.

Wilders is part of the political party "the Party of Freedom" who once said: "people are equal but cultures are not." lol. Political leaders, internet forums and almost any source you can find is finding this movie something rather sad. Wilders has failed completely and is looking like a Cosmic Schmuck! Nice going.

Makes me think of the movie Powder again, the "outcasts" always seem much more human than the judging and condeming outcasters.

life is but a dream...

Dreams have inspired important scientific advances. Perhaps the most celebrated of these is the inspiration for discovery of the molecular structure of benzene by Kekule. The Russian chemist Mendelev discovered the periodic table method of classifying elements according to atomic weight while dreaming. Elias Howe completed his invention of the sewing machine while dreaming. Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity came to him partly in a dream. Other dream-inspired creations include literary masterpieces such as Dante’s Divine Comedy, Voltaire’s Candide, "The Raven" by Poe and "Ulysses" by James Joyce. Robert Louis Stevenson was able to formulate stories while dreaming, which he later wrote down and published. Even some popular music compositions by Billy Joel and Paul McCartney have come in dreams. Even precognition appears in dreams, as Lincoln for example dreamt of his own assassination a week before. (see synchronicity.)

From "Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light" by Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche.
see Dream Creativity & Discovery

Everybody dreams, you just need to find out how to remember how your dreams. Practice short meditation before sleeping, affirm your intentions before going to sleep. When waking up, first keep lying still and try to remember, gradually it will come with time and practice. Then write them down in the dream journal next to you, cause you can forget a lot after only a few minutes. Remember fantastic adventures, get inspired & come to insightful realizations through symbolism & metaphor about yourself & the world.

Then find out how to trigger lucidity in them and shape your own dreamworld like a god - your very own holodeck! When opening a door, look at your hands and ask yourself: am I dreaming? And this habit will convey to your dreams. Tell yourself before going to sleep that you will recognize dreams when an incongruous event takes place. When you realize you are dreaming, you can do whatever you like with enough focus. When becoming adept enough, you can even utilise the precious sleep time to further your spiritual practice without material bodily inhibitions or learn or practice anything else you can imagine.

Become a better, happier you

Take a trip into your own mind.
"Awareness + Intention = Control in a lucid dream." Jeremiah Molfese
Does the dreamer dream the dream or does the dream dream the dreamer?
"Dreams are a reservoir of knowledge and experience, yet they are often overlooked as a vehicle for exploring reality. In the dream state our bodies are at rest, yet we see and hear, move about, and are even able to learn. When we make good use of the dream state, it is almost as if our lives were doubled: instead of a hundred years, we live two hundred." Tibetan Buddhist Tarthang Tulku
"The dream shows the inner truth and reality of the patient as it really is: not as I conjecture it to be, and not as he would like it to be, but as it is." Carl Jung
Sigmund Freud called dreaming the royal road to the unconscious
"What if you slept, and what if in your sleep you dreamed, and what if in your dream you went to heaven and there you plucked a strange and beautiful flower, and what if when you awoke you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?" Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"A dream not interpreted is like a letter not read." The Talmud
"American physicist and Nobel prize winner Richard Feynman introduced the concept of 'Negative Time', in the case of electrons it can occur that their departure time is mathematically behind the arrival time. This reversal of order could be meaningful for explaining predictive dreams." Henri Van Praag

Dr Steven Greer?

Dr Steven Greer Practical Applications Unbounded Mind Part 1

I saw this guy on the shamelist of those awards I posted and thought wtf? This is the guy behind the Disclosure Project isn't he? He was one of the first regular UFO guys (not that into ufology so forgive the ignorance if there were many others before him) that made sense to me since I heard him talking about extradimensionality. Now I understand though hehe, Greer has gone all new agey on the UFO community's asses and that's not what the UFO community is for! Is it?! No they're here for UFO's, and if UFO's suddenly start getting extradimensional and you have to mix in meditation and all that they'll have nothing of it! We want UFOs, fuck the truth, "WE WANT TO BELIEVE!" :p After all, beliefs & intrests are meant to divide, not unite right ;p.
That being said though, who the hell can you take seriously anymore? I don't even take reality seriously anymore. So don't take this too seriously, I'm joking with a few sides of the spectrum here, all views are just as likely as there's little evidence to support each one.
Greer says there are no aliens abducting humans. It's the military lol. (I'm laughing but it's just as plausible as the 1569835416 other theories out there, do YOU know 2 people that think alike about this? I sure don't!). How do you define torture Cheney?! Cheney: "you mean oldschool or spaceship torture?" Calling goodlooking aliens good & ugly ass disgusting aliens evil is galactic racism he says, lol! Good point, though seriously, who'd wanna sit down and have dinner with a 7 foot slimey reptilian who might rape your daughter and eat your baby. That wasn't on the menu dude!
He also said he met with the Clintons but they didn't wanna get 'assassinated' LOL I have a hard time taking that seriously, the Clintons aren't good actors & they're also full of shit, so if you can't see through that BS I'll have some difficulty taking you seriously. He also thinks Gore is serious about Global Warming and cares :p It's possible! :p Oh right, and he runs meditation workshops, 1000 bucks of course - this is sacred (read expensive, sacred should be free right?) knowledge after all, and you can manifest ufo's & higher intelligence! Nevermind giving you the meditation instructions could take about 5 minutes :p. And the military will occasionally come take a peak with crazy cool weaponry on the latest craft. Now why the hell would you wanna see a light orb and have the military come look at it also? :p Oh right, to communicate with higher intelligence - who are pre-verbal :p (lol I jest. I know, I know :p still kidding here)- to learn... stuff. Oh btw, there isn't one picture or video from people who meditated with Greer that wanna prove it.
It's a good thing they are preverbal though, cause I can't read that channeled shit from Archangel Michael and his cousin from Seven planets left of the star cluster Nebukooka, they always start with: Beloved ones... Dearest ones... and they seem to use a lot of words saying absolutely NOTHING. Do your research higher intelligences, that shit don't fly here unless you're new agey!
Oh and speaking about extradimensionality, Greer fumbled that one too though when he claimed SETI had contact which was of course denied by SETI. I think the likelihood of extradimensional beings contacting us on radio frequencies is so hilarious, it's a good thing those dishes look cool, that's why we keep 'em.
I like to kid around about any version of reality, but I find all his theories just as likely as any other ufologist out there. And some I really like too, but that doesn't mean I'll believe 'em. It's like, throw the confetti up in the air and let's just have a good laugh at reality. Trickster archetype at work!
It might just be our own consciousness projecting itself to let us know we're not going the right way. Well damn you consciousness, you couldn't have projected a bit more a few thousands years ago? :p
(Please don't take offense. I'm kidding, the thousands of alternate online realities are just as silly and funny as consensus reality)

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it - even if I have said it - unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense." - The Buddha.

Even Buddha had no idea how fucking crazy reality would get though.

English mofo do ya speak it?

I learned the difference between much & many today. Thanks Cam lol. So I fuxored the poll. I voted for 5 since that had 3 votes, 20 had one, 10 had one :p I'll consider that at the end. Vote people, it matters here hehe.

Psychedelic Chemist Explores the Surreality of Inner Space, One Drug at a Time

Alexander Shulgin endured a government crackdown and hallucinations of his bones melting in pursuit of new mind-bending compounds. By David Biello.

Alexander Shulgin is the world's foremost "psychonaut." The 82-year-old chemist has not only created more of the 300 known consciousness-altering (or psychoactive) compounds than anyone living or dead, he has, by his own account, sampled somewhere between 200 and 250 of them himself—most of them cooked up in the musty lab behind his home in the hills east of Berkeley, Calif., where he has shared many a chemical voyage with his wife of 26 years, Ann.

"I take them myself because I am interested in their activity in the human mind. How would you test that in a rat or mouse?" says Shulgin, known to friends as Sasha.

Boltzmann Brain Paradox

A Boltzmann brain is a hypothesized self-aware entity which arises due to random fluctuations out of a state of chaos. The idea is named for physicist Ludwig Boltzmann (1844 - 1906), who had advanced an idea that the known universe arose as a random fluctuation, similar to process through which Boltzmann brains might arise.

The concept arises from the need to explain why we observe such a large degree of organization in the universe. The second law of thermodynamics states that the entropy in the universe will always increase. We may think of the most likely state of the universe as one of high entropy, closer to uniform and without order. So why is the observed entropy so low?

Boltzmann proposed that we and our observed low-entropy world are a random fluctuation in a higher-entropy universe. Even in a near-equilibrium state, there will be stochastic fluctuations in the level of entropy. The most common fluctuations will be relatively small, resulting in only small amounts of organization, while larger fluctuations and their resulting greater levels of organization will be comparatively more rare. Large fluctuations would be almost inconceivably rare, but this can be explained by the enormous size of the universe and by the idea that if we are the results of a fluctuation, there is a "selection bias": We observe this very unlikely universe because the unlikely conditions are necessary for us to be here.

This leads to the Boltzmann brain concept: If our current level of organization, having many self-aware entities, is a result of a random fluctuation, it is much less likely than a level of organization which is only just able to create a single self-aware entity. For every universe with the level of organization we see, there should be an enormous number of lone Boltzmann brains floating around in unorganized environments. This refutes the observer argument above: the organization I see is vastly more than what is required to explain my consciousness, and therefore it is highly unlikely that I am the result of a stochastic fluctuation.

The Boltzmann brains paradox is that it is more likely that a brain randomly forms out of the chaos with false memories of its life than that the universe around us would have billions of self-aware brains.

'Skeptics' take on Accupuncture

'Skeptics' take on Accupuncture (read here)

Ok just had to butcher my own article :p

I opened with a statement that "The Chinese do freaking open heart surgery with accupuncture anaesthetic while the patient is conscious with its chest open, the BBC has shown it in a documentary even."
Edit: Holy crap, someone posted a comment with a link that the entire segment in the docu was fake, thanks to the poster, but real gratitude goes out to the BBC! :p
For example, the scene showing a patient punctured with needles and undergoing heart surgery left viewers with the strong impression that acupuncture was providing immense pain relief. In fact, in addition to acupuncture, the patient had a combination of three very powerful sedatives (midazolam, droperidol, fentanyl) and large volumes of local anaesthetic injected into the chest.

With such a cocktail of chemicals, the needles were merely cosmetic. In short, this memorable bit of television was emotionally powerful, but scientifically meaningless in building a case for acupuncture. I have spoken to several experts who say that the procedure was neither shocking nor impressive, but it was unconventional because the Chinese surgeons seemed to have used a higher level of local anaesthetic to compensate for the lack of general anaesthetic.

When I put this to Professor Sykes, she replied: "The suggestion that the operation could have taken place without the acupuncture and it would have been fine is an interesting idea and might possibly be the case."
Well you don't have to be a scientist to know that do ya Sykes? Fuck :p

My main point though was this:
What the thinker thinks, the prover proves. That goes for scientists (even methodologists! :p) too. You have to look first, make up your mind later. And belief or openness to the treatment is an actual necessary factor as it relies on the neurosomatic mind body connection... So I think it's kinda logical you have to be awake in a MIND-BODY Healing modality.
"but alternative medicine only seems to work when you are awake. You have to know (or think) you’re being treated."
This was my biggest issue with the article. It's the whole point of mind-body medicine. If they can't grasp that how can they investigate the modality well? Obviously mind-body healing can't be measured with old paradigm objective science - because it's subjective. I remain unconvinced by this research. Awareness cannot be measured (yet) either, is anyone silly enough to claim it doesn't exist?

Conclusion: Another lesson in BS (thanks again anonymous poster). I haven't tried accupuncture and don't like needles period. Though work with Chi energy and Meridians has proven very useful to me and I found this investigation unconvincing due to their basic assumptions about it.

Daily Dedroidify: The Divine Ratio

Daily Dedroidify: Phi 1.618* | the Divine Ratio (aka Golden - Mean, Section, Proportion)

Phi is an irrational number that seems to be life's archetypal architecture. Reflecting nature's balance between symmetry and asymmetry and the ancient Pythagorean belief that reality is a numerical reality, except that numbers were not units as we define them today, but were expressions of ratios.
You can find this ratio everywhere: math, geometry, art, color, music, life, the human body, animals, plants, dna, architecture, population growth,...

The Fibonacci series: 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144 233...

Starting with 0 and 1, each new number is simply the sum of the two before it. The ratio of each successive pair of numbers in the series approximates Phi 1.618*, as 5/3 = 1.666*, 8/5 = 1.6. The successive numbers quickly converge on Phi. After the 40th number, the ratio is accurate to 15 decimal places: 1.618033988749895...

Greek philosophers considered the Golden Mean to be the middle between two extremes, one of excess and the other of deficiency.

According to legend, the Greek Philosopher Pythagoras discovered the concept of harmony when he began his studies of proportion while listening to the different sounds given off when the blacksmith’s hammers hit their anvils. The weights of the hammers and of the anvils all gave off different sounds. From here he moved to the study of stringed instruments and the different sounds they produced. He started with a single string and produced a monochord in the ratio of 1:1 called the Unison. By varying the string, he produced other chords: a ratio of 2:1 produced notes an octave apart. (Modern music theory calls a 5:4 ratio a "major third" and an 8:5 ratio a "major sixth".) In further studies of nature, he observed certain patterns and numbers reoccurring. Pythagoras believed that beauty was associated with the ratio of small integers. With this discovery, the Pythagoreans saw the essence of the cosmos as numbers and numbers took on special meaning and significance. The symbol of the Pythagorean brotherhood was the pentagram, in itself embodying several Golden Means.

Is this the world we created?

Queen: Is this the world we created?

Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the suffering we breed
So many lonely faces scattered all around
Searching for what they need

Is this the world we created?
what did we do it for?
Is this the world we invaded?
Against the law?
So it seems in the end
Is this what we're all living for today?
The world that we created.

You know that every day a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by.

Is this the world we created
we made it on our own
Is this the world we devastated
Right to the bone?
If there's a God in the sky looking down
What can he think of what we've done
To the world that he created?

Breathing For Beginners

If you can read this, then the chances are you don’t consider yourself a beginner at breathing. After all, you’ve been doing it for years. But are you really breathing or are you operating on automatic pilot and missing out on a whole host of breath related benefits.

Breath awareness helps the body detox, repair, regenerate and blow stress away.

Read on to discover the simple secrets of how your breath can calm your mind and heal your body.

Influencing Autonomy
Breathing is the only vital autonomic bodily function that can be consciously controlled and directed by the mind. This is so for a reason; your breathing is a bridge between your body and your mind. To allow your breathing to remain unconscious and automatic is to exist in a realm where that bridge is obstructed.

The breath is intended as a balancing device, a tuning tool that allows you conscious control of your emotions, and access to states of deep relaxation and harmony. Your breath holds the key to the door of compassion and understanding for all living beings. Why? Because it is in the moments of peace and stillness created by breath awareness that you can get in touch with the inner you. The peaceful, calm and competent you, and the you that can extend empathy, care and concern to others.

Being able to control your breath means being able to control your mind and being able to deeply nourish, oxygenate and detox the cells and tissues of your body.

When you are rushing about too busy and too stressed to eat properly, breath properly etc etc you are also too busy to connect properly with others. Over years of observation it has come to my attention that stressed people are not popular people. They are snappy, selfish and a strain to be around. They are missing out on the sweetness and subtleties of life. Stress robs us of the pleasures to be found in simple things in life and can cause us to drive others nuts with our ranting about little inconveniences that become mountains of self-obsessed stupidity.

Stress is a personality spoiler - breathing practice is a personality nourisher. It may well be one of the most powerful, yet overlooked tools in personal development.

Deeply Does it
Deep breathing is also detoxing to the internal organs as the diaphragm assists the heart by massaging the organs as it draws down to breath deeply and then pumping blood strongly back up to the heart and lungs for more effective cleansing and re-oxygenation.

Detoxing, regeneration and repair of the body are further enhanced and triggered by the parasympathetic switch brought about by deep breathing. Slowing and deepening your breathing is a sign to your body to switch off the “fight or flight” responses that operate when you’re under duress.

The trouble with the hustle and bustle of modern life is that your body may perceive you to be always experiencing stress to some degree. If you are in the habit of breathing rapidly and shallowly, your nervous system may not get the message to “stand down” and you may be rapidly burning your energy reserves by living on constant standby.

That standby state keeps adrenaline coursing through your veins, puts your digestive system on hold, and causes excess heat and acidity in the body - which are two major causes of degeneration and disease.

Slow Your Breath & Lengthen Your Life
The Vedas teach that life duration is measured in breaths and that there is a direct relationship between how fast you breath and how long you live. To breath rapidly and high up in the chest squanders your vitality. It makes you gasp like a fish out of water. Slowing your breathing preserves your vital energy and calms your spirit.

A recent study in India concluded that the average volume of air inhaled can be increased by up to 50% after just 15 minutes of deep diaphragmatic breathing and that the average number of breaths per minute reduced from 15 to just 5 breaths a minute thus making breathing more efficient, energy producing, and stress reducing.

“When breathing is depressed or strained, all sorts of diseases will occur. Those who wish to nurture their lives must first learn the correct methods of controlling the breath and balancing energy. These breathing methods can cure all ailments great and small.

How to Educate Your Lungs
Both Qigong (which literally mean “energy work” or “breathing skill”) and Yoga teach a basic form of diaphragmatic breathing that can be learned and practiced easily and without complex instruction.

Daily sessions of 10 to 15 minutes are long enough to make a significant difference to your life, the added benefit of regular practice being that you will educate yourself to be always more mindful of your breath, or at least to know how to stand down and recover quickly from stress and emotional upsets.

Quick guide to deep diaphragmatic breathing

Stage 1: Inhalation
Inhale through your nose. Relax your diaphragm as you breath in and let it draw the air down deep into your abdominal cavity (i.e. Stomach area). Allow your ribcage to relax and expand as you breath in so that your lungs can get “topped up” right up to your collarbone area. Then press the air down into your diaphragm so that your stomach wall is pushed out.

Stage 2: Retention
Hold that breath. Consciously hold the breath for about 5 seconds then relax and let it out.

Stage 3: Exhalation
Pull your stomach in and up and let the breath out in a slow steady stream through your mouth. Be sure to fully empty your lungs.

Stage 4: Empty Retention
Pause for a few seconds with your lungs empty before starting again with the next complete and deep inhalation.

In pranayama, Yoga’s ancient system of breathing for health and longevity, it is this held empty state that is considered the most beneficial to the body and the mind.

(warning: all spoilers in the plot summary of wiki link)

World War III is raging - or so the millions of people crammed in their underground tanks believe. For fifteen years, subterranean humanity has been fed on daily broadcasts of a never-ending nuclear destruction, sustained by a belief in the all powerful Protector. But up on Earth's surface, a different kind of reality reigns. East and West are at peace. And across the planet, an elite corps of expert hoaxers preserve the lie.

Heavily recommended!

Daily Dedroidify: Views of Life

Daily Dedroidify: Alan Watts' Views of Life

The Chinese view nature as biological. The Chinese call nature 'zi ran,' and this expression means 'of itself so', 'what happens of itself' or we might say spontaneity. Everything that happens, happens of itself in a certain spontaneity. There is no principle that forces things to behave the way they do, it is a completely democratic theory of nature.

The Indians view life as drama and everything happens to the self. The Brahman, the self pretends that it's lost and is us, and all our adventures, and all our troubles, and all our agonies and tragedies it gets mixed up in, then after a long period has elapsed, there is a catastrophe, the universe is destroyed in fire, and after that the Brahman wakes up, and says "well, good crazy what an adventure that was", he wipes the sweat of his brow and says "phew, let's rest a while." So for another period the divine self rests and knows who it is, "it's me!" Then it says "well, this rather boring, let's get going again, let's get mixed up! So that's a theory of drama, of play! (see Kali Yuga page)

Then there's the Judeo-Christian view of the maker, the architect, the constructor, the allmighty dictator who 'made' nature. Then around the 18th century Western people became increasingly doubtful wether there was such a God, but they kept their belief in this artifact, this machine and by the time of Newton people were explaining the world in terms of mechanism.
And we're still under the influence of that idea, because when you see drawings of human physiology they usually show the human being as a kind of mechanism, as a sort of factory. When you go to a hospital, you are processed, the heart specialist looks only at your heart because he can't understand anything else, the otolaryngologist which means the ears, nose and throat man looks at that section of you and he doesn't know about anything else and maybe a psychiatrist looks at you and goodness knows what happens there and so on and so on.

Everybody looks at you from their specialised point of view as if they were a bunch of mechanics examening your automobile. We ask for this, because most of us consider ourselves as chauffeurs inside our bodies which you own in the same way as you own a car and if it goes wrong you take it to the mechanic to fix it. You don't really identify with your body just as you don't really identify with your car. So here is this whole theory of nature which has grown up in the west as an artifact, something made. Most westerners wether they are Christians or non-Christians don't trust nature. Of all things nature is the thing least to be trusted! You must manage it, you must watch out for it, it comes out with weeds and insects and it will always go wrong if you don't watch out it! And above all human nature isn't to be trusted! Cause if you don't hold a club over your own head you might go out and rape your grandmother!

Now the Chinese would say, if you can't trust yourself, you can't trust anything. Because if you can't trust yourself, can you trust your mistrust of yourself? Is that well-founded? See? If you can't trust yourself you are totally mixed up, you haven't a leg to stand up and you haven't a point of departure for anything!

You are not merely a Grey Machine

"If you are intelligent and reasonable, you can not be the product of a mechanical and meaningless universe." Alan Watts (This is merely an edited excerpt from the excellent The Tao of philosophy - Man in nature.)

Daily Dedroidify: Life is just a Ride

Daily Dedroidify: Life is just a Ride
The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while.
Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?"

And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say: "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever,
because this is just a ride." ... and we kill those people.

Ha ha, "Shut him up. We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real." It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as ONE.

Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.

�That is the abyss from which there is no return.� - Frank Church, Dead

This hegemonic structure is ingrained, entrained, your docile body is formed from years of sitting in place, holding controllers and manipulating an avatar within imagineered spaces created to feed the corporate egregores. Our governments are no different, the power has been wrestled from the flesh and given to the metabiologicals. We are on the outs with power, we are weakened as humans, and the true future lies in the hands of entities we've created. Human 2.0 IS the corporation, it IS a hivemind. The OVERSOULS are HERE and they are IMMORTAL. We fleshy humans were once the parents of these beings, but have become parasites and food for these new beings divorced as they are from the flesh. Smart people should hope, because once they stop, once that functioning brain realizes the rest of the body has been cut away, we are enslaved, uploaded, and our essence devoured.

Funny Prayers for Myers Briggs Types

This is pretty funny (the prayers below), Myers Briggs Types is a personality questionnaire designed to identify certain psychological differences according to the typological theories of Carl Gustav Jung as published in his 1921 book Psychological Types.

While many academic psychologists have criticized the indicator in research literature, claiming that it "lacks convincing validity data," (how can subjective data be scientific, why should it have to be? Is everything that's subjective not science? Surely not.) proponents of the test cite unblinded anecdotal predictions of individual behavior.

I suggest you take this test, see what can help you in becoming a better person - but don't "learn" new problems ;p just because your type has these. I've seen people take this test and instead of learning from it they used it as an excuse for new weaknesses. It can help you to understand a lot of your behaviour and others too. Providing for more tolerance.

Becoming Our Higher Self

by Mary Mageau

The higher self is referred to and understood by many different schools of spiritual teaching. The lower self, or our ego personality, is not our true self, because the ego is trapped by a plethora of its own desires, needs, likes and dislikes. As soon as an ego based person achieves his/her desire or acquires an object, a new desire springs forth in a never ending sequence. An ego driven person will judge everything exclusively in relation to its own needs and desires. Only when one can detach themselves from their ever present I, Me or Mine, can they step back objectively to view each life lesson or circumstance. Ultimately we must all understand the ego personality to be the illusion that it actually is. By engaging in spiritual practices such as meditation, study and prayer, a person is enabled to transcend his/her ego personality and begin to realize their higher self. Through this process one can truly discover his/her soul and begin their genuine approach to the Divine.

When your personality (the unification of your spiritual, emotional and mental bodies) has fully developed, integrated and evolved, it then becomes your higher self - the perfect instrument through which your soul can fulfil its goals and express itself on the earth plane. As your higher self, you then carry out the purpose of your soul instead of following the desires of your ego personality. Your higher self is the intimate and integral aspect of yourself that remains aware of and interacts positively with the whole of your being. Your higher self is the most perfect form of ‘you’ that exists in the universe and it actively guides you on your journey through life.

This guidance manifests itself in your life in many subtle ways: as the still, small voice within (conscience), or it may communicate directly as vivid images or pictures, through flashes of insight and feelings and as intuition or knowingness. In trying to understand the perspective of the higher self in relation to the ego or personality self, we might visualize ourselves attending a conference in a huge auditorium, that has been partitioned into many smaller rooms. Our greater whole being occupies the entire floor as well as all the smaller rooms, while our 3D consciousness would only be aware of the one small room in which we were focused. Our higher self, in comparison, would be fully aware and be participating simultaneously in all rooms on the entire floor. Thus the higher self holds a much greater vision of our entire being and of the many rooms or planes within which we exist.

Our lower personality self is not always aware of our higher self if our lives are cluttered with busyness, actions or attitudes that cut us off from our higher self. Our higher self always signals to us when we are out of alignment with it through pain, tension and disease. People always know and feel deep down inside if they are not aligned with the laws of life or are not living out their true purpose. When the personality self uses its will against the higher self, signs of conflict begin to appear in the conscious mind. These manifest as feelings of anxiety, stress, warning dreams, discontent and uneasiness. If ignored these feelings accumulate and manifest as illnesses in the body, mind, emotions and relationships. This leads to conflict between the lower and higher selves that could ultimately result in a split or cleavage within the psyche. Dr. Albert Schweitzer called the higher self, ‘the wise doctor within’ and its streams of positive energy hold the key to healing.

Contact with our higher self is demonstrated by:
· A growing sense of responsibility and purpose for living
· A willingness to accept responsibility for all of one’s thoughts, word and actions
· A desire to openly practice forgiveness
· Making choices that lead to a growth in wisdom, inner peace and gratitude
· Practicing spiritual will and genuine service
· Reflecting joy, harmony and unconditional love to each and all

We can begin to open a pathway to union with our higher selves by first practicing self-respect and self-esteem. Without this, a poor self-image could prevent gifts of the higher self from flowing into the personality. It is through meditation that we are enabled to contact the life of the higher self, so as to be nourished by its strength, wisdom and total love for us. We can relax and soften our body, emotions and mind in order to release much superficial tension. We can also choose to live more quietly and to simplify our lives. But when true contact is finally made it will result in the awareness of a new ability to think more clearly and with greater understanding. One will become more forgiving and have better rapport with others; knowing and feeling that there is a powerful presence within us – a wonderful source of healing, courage, strength, unconditional love and a new motivation.

We can draw our higher self to us through the following exercise. Sit quietly and relax with several deep gentle breaths. Release unnecessary thoughts and identify with the higher self by visualizing or imagining a bright column of healing light that comes from above your head (where the higher self is located). See this enter your body and move downward radiating outward and bathing every organ and cell in your body with white light. Then see it continue down into the earth under your feet, grounding you into the planet. Now call lovingly to your higher self, inviting it to come forward and to co-create with you. Ask it to fulfil your life, to become your ultimate coach and partner in order to express its qualities. Your higher self loves you truthfully and totally and will reply to your request. But you must first begin this process through your desire and conscious invitation. Therefore it is the task of your personality self to become aware of the higher self, thereby achieving the state of higher consciousness. This is a major goal of spiritual development and self-realization.

Ever reviled, accursed, ne'er understood,
Thou art the grisly terror of our age.
"Wreck of all order," cry the multitude,
"Art thou, and war and murder's endless rage."
O, let them cry. To them that ne'er have striven
The truth that lies behind a word to find,
To them the word's right meaning was not given.
They shall continue blind among the blind.
But thou, O word, so clear, so strong, so pure,
Thou sayest all which I for goal have taken.
I give thee to the future! Thine secure
When each at least unto himself shall waken.
Comes it in sunshine? In the tempest's thrill?
I cannot tell--but it the earth shall see!
I am an Anarchist! Wherefore I will
Not rule, and also ruled I will not be!

Ray Kurzweil - Our Bodies, Our Technologies

Ray Kurzweil - Our Bodies, Our Technologies

How close are we to a world in which the abilities of machines are indistinguishable from those of the species that invented them? Closer than you think, says award-winning scientist and author Ray Kurzweil who has dedicated his career to blurring the line between humans and machines. His inventions have used technology to enhance and replace humankind's biological capabilities, while his most recent books reverse the relationship, attributing souls and intelligence to machines. His forthcoming book, to be published by Viking Press, is entitled The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology; it explores the social and philosophical ramifications of our potential to overcome the limitations of biology.

All I have to say is, when they are able to make technology outside the body that works like it's supposed to & doesn't crash randomly. I'll start considering considering (not a mistake) technology inside my body.

Buddhism - The Art of Enlightenment

Buddhism - The Art of Enlightenment
The cold hard reality is that Buddhism can be as much a dogmatic Belief System as any other BS. When I went to Thailand the only Buddhism I saw from the common people was praying to Buddha for MONEY before their shift started. I mean wow, talk about missing the point. It was a huge disappointment. Most don't even bother anymore to do that. I asked tens of people if they meditated and the answer was always no. The only real Buddhists I saw were at the temples. Another example a friend told me, about people who 'convert' to Buddhism and blabber on about rebirth and karma, yet don't practice the teachings either. Buddha said "work out your own salvation, do not depend on others." Another whise Buddhist saying is: "if Buddhism practices tolerance for all living beings, it is useless to judge other religions and call yourself a Buddhist."

The Roots of the Matrix

The Roots of the Matrix

I was nearly turned off from watching this thanks to the vid info. There's a difference between "interpretations" and "explaining all", a big difference.

From the vid info: This video seperates The matrix trilogy and explains 'all' (ahum, some, geez the arrogance :p) the beliefs structures, religions beliefs, philosophies, etc. that are woven into the matrix movies. It uses the writers' and directors' own movie to show their alternate agenda. One example of how closely the movie is really based on religious beliefs is that the license plates on the cars during the highway chase sceen are actually Bible books and verses that parallel what is happening in the movie. And this video clearly shows it would take much longer to fully explain the depth of which the writers wove the stories, than it did for them to write it. (or steal/borrow/use parts from several other authors for instance Sophia Stewart.)
