Horizon: How Does Your Memory Work?


Horizon: How Does Your Memory Work?

You might think that your memory is there to help you remember facts, such as birthdays or shopping lists. If so, you would be very wrong. The ability to travel back in time in your mind is, perhaps, your most remarkable ability, and develops over your lifespan.

Horizon takes viewers on an extraordinary journey into the human memory. From the woman who is having her most traumatic memories wiped by a pill, to the man with no memory, this film reveals how these remarkable human stories are transforming our understanding of this unique human ability.

The findings reveal the startling truth that everyone is little more than their own memory.

Mystery Appreciation

Check out the Mystery Appreciation blog

This blog is about enlivening appreciation of the mystery experience. It is about humans, and our constant companion: the oddly unknown. Here, the object of mystery is secondary to the experience of mystery.

I do not write about little mysteries like JFK or D.B. Cooper. I write about mysteries that touch on giant questions, and are ongoing as we speak. For example, a UFO might drop out of the sky (and they do) anytime. This mystery is moving. 70% of Americans believe in UFOs...But it's all behind closed doors. This is a special time, a strange time, a time of repressive fear and public contradiction to public intuition. Social studies meets science fiction meets reality, only here at Mystery Appreciation.

Daily Dedroidify: Scapegoat the Mass Media



Antero Alli - Scapegoat the Mass Media!

Many are the ways to scapegoat the mass media. For starters, turn off the TV. Break trance. Create your own media. Make trance. Produce more media than you're currently consuming. Reimagine everything you see on TV. Stop your cocooning. Get out into the streets again. Talk amongst yourselves. Listen to international news on a short-wave radio. Really listen to each other. Make a movie with your friends. Start a newsletter. Get your imaginations back. Take an artist out to lunch. Stop mainlining the online. Make real connections with people. Turn off the TV. Break trance. Make trance. Create your own media. Do it now.
Imagination death precedes death of soul.

Some hopeful comments about Obama, though hey Project Camelot is rumored to be disinfo. Shit Wilcock even says Obama isn't in "their" pockets, I mean geez pay attention. Interesting topics, though what's the use with this level of disinfo.

New Header?

Hey folks, the coming days I will be experimenting with some new headers, so don't be surprised if things look weird up there sometimes hehe. I really like Stargate (enlightenment, 2012, etc) symbolism so anything wide stargate-related would be fitting. Or anything relating to de-droid-ifying, de-robotizing, etc. All suggestions are welcome :)

For the time being I'll put this Farscape Wormhole pic up. It fits ok, you see the spirit from the Prometheus Rising cover at the right rising up and then you see the Farscape ship - underneath the word "explore" - going through the wormhole, a symbol for diving into the unconscious, interdimensional travel, 2012, enlightenment and probably even more :)

Daily Dedroidify: Believe Nothing!

Daily Dedroidify: Believe Nothing!

...I began to develop a strong suspicion that there was, somewhere in space-time, another Adept of Brain Change, or perhaps a School of Adepts, helping and guiding me. This is not at all unusual. In most human societies, historically, the shamans have used similar brain-change drugs and soon became convinced they have "allies" [for instance Animal Guides, which are archetypical forces aswell] helping them. Even a man with such a long and orthodox scientific career as Dr. John Lilly confesses that he thought he had super-human "Guides" on some of his LSD voyages.
My teachers seemd to have a damned peculiar sense of humar at times. At one point I was almost totally convinced that my teachers were a school of extraterrestrial adepts resident in the double-star system of Sirius. Strange coincidences - or Jungian synchronicities - then accumulated around me, supporting this theory.
Later, a "psychic reader" told me I was "channeling" the spirit of an ancient Chinese sage. Coincidences or "omens" supporting this model then obligingly appeared.
Then, another "psychic" told me I was channeling a medieval Irish bard. More synchronicities followed.
This sort of things always happens to people who mess around with Cabala (even if they don't use Acid) [Or those who mess around with consciousness alteration and conscious evolution in general]
The late Dr. Israel Regardie, a psychotherapist and Cabalist, often distinguished two ways of looking at this phenomenon, when it happens to you. The objective theory, as he called it, assumes an external reality to these "entities." The subjective theory, on the other hand, assumes the "entities" exist only in our brains, as anti-selves or Jungian archetypes or something of that sort. Dr. Regardie believed you will get the best results when you are not committed to either theory but just open yourself to whatever happens.
Somewhere along the way I got concerned with the direction all this was taking and decided to safeguard my sanity by choosing the subjective theory (it's all in my head), and ruthlessly repressing any tendency to speculate further about possible objective theories (there are super-human forces at work here...). In terms of the neurological model then current, I explained everything as my over-developed left brain learning to receive signals from my usually "silent" right brain. (We now know that this left brain/right brain model does not quite explain everything, and Karl Pribram's hologram model of consciousness seems more inclusive.)
Robert Anton Wilson: Cosmic Trigger 2: Down to Earth

Some other thoughts, maybe our unconscious is so powerful that we can let it guide us (another useful metaphor is maybe we are all God like in the Hindu sense that if we want can lead our unconscious, or Higher self, or God, etc etc to guide us out of the maze we got ourselves into), this comes in whatever forms we prefer consciously or have imprinted unconsciously and can change if we so 'intend' it. Intention and Archetypes are powerful stuff! Maybe the subjective side of reality as we filter it with our nervous systems is much more powerful than we now think after the one-sided objective materialistic age which has obviously not made us happy to our fullest potential. Sometimes it seems help from 'outside' no matter how strange is required for our growth. The moral of the story however is BELIEVE NOTHING; It is the highest form of intelligence =)

"Nothing is true, everything is permitted."
Hassan-i Sabbah

"In this book it is spoken of the Sephiroth, and the Paths, of Spirits and Conjurations ; of Gods, Spheres, Planes and many other things which may or may not exist. It is immaterial whether they exist or not. By doing certain things certain results follow ; students are most earnestly warned against attributing objective reality or philosophic validity to any of them."

Marketing to Apes


Marketing to Apes 1of2 and 2of2

How do we know a false smile from the real thing? What does the grooming habits of chimps tell us about selling beer? The direction of a glance or the way a hand lays on a table in an ad can signal meanings to which we are hard-wired to respond. Each of us gives and responds to thousands of nonverbal messages daily. This presentation, presented by John Harrington and Gavin Johnston, will show you how a good brand capitalizes on signals that go back to our most primal instincts.

John C. Lilly: Beliefs Unlimited

Excerpt from 'Center of the Cyclone' p127 and on.

The next exercise was the "Beliefs Unlimited" exercise in which one attempted to move beyond one's current belief structures. We listented to a tape programmed in a repetitive fashion (5 presentations each time) to maximize absorption. The directions for listening to the tape were to lie in a comfortable position on the floor with the lights very dim and to just allow the metaprogramming to enter one's biocomputer.

Beliefs Unlimited.
In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true within certain limits, to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are beliefs to be transcended.
Hidden from one's self is a covert set of beliefs that control on's thinking, one's actions, and one's feelings.
The covert set of hidden beliefs is the limiting set of beliefs to be transcended.
To transcend one's limiting set, one establishes an open-ended set of beliefs about the unknown.
The unknown exists in one's goals for changing one's self, int he means for changing, in th euse of others for the change, in one's capacity to change, in one's orientation toward change, in one's elimination of hindrances to change, in one's assimilation of the aids to change, in one's use of the impulse to change, in one's need for changing, in the possibilities of change, in the form of change itself, and in the substance of change and of changing.
The unknown exists in one's goals for changing one's self, in the means for that change, in the use of others in the changing, in one's capacity for changing one's self, in one's orientation toward changes, in the elimination of hindrances to changing, in one's assimilation of the aids to changing, in one's impulses toward changing one's self and undergoing changes, in one's needs for changse, in the possibilities for change, in the form of the changes tehmselves, an din the substance of the changes and of changing itself.
There are unknowns in my goals toward changing. There are unknowns in my means of changing. There are unknowns in my relations with others in changing. There are unknowns in my capacity for changing. There are unknowns in my orientation toward changing. There are unknowns in my assimilation of changes. There are unknowns in my needs for changing. There are unknowns in the possibilities of me changing. There are unknowns in the forms into which changing will put me. There are unknowns in the substance of the changes that I will undergo, in my substance after changes.
My disbelief in all these unknowns is a limiting belief, preventing my transcending my limits. My disbelief in these unknowns is a belief, a limiting belief, preventing my transcending my limits.
By allowing there are no limits; no limits to thinking, no limits to feeling, no limits to movement. By allowing, there are no limits. There are no limits to thinking, no limits to feeling, no limits to movement.
That which is not allowed is forbidden. That which is allowed, exists. In allowing no limits, there are no limits. That which is forbidden is not allowed. That which is not allowed is forbidden. That which exists is allowed. That which is allowed, exists. In allowing no limits, there are no limits. That which is not allowed is forbidden. That which is forbidden is not allowed. That which is allowed, exists. That which exists is allowed. To allow no limits, there are no limits. No limits allowed. No limits exist.
In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true. In the province of the mind, there are no limits. In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true is true or becomes true. There are no limits.

The Mind is a powerful tool, are you using yours wisely?

"What we perceive as reality is only a canvas waiting for us to draw upon it any picture we want. Anything is possible, from bending spoons with the power of the mind to the phantasmagoric events experienced by Castaneda during his encounters with the Yaqui brujo don Juan, for magic is our birthright, no more or less miraculous than our ability to compute the reality we want when we are in our dreams."

Daily Dedroidify: Clinging to Belief

Daily Dedroidify: Clinging to Belief

"Truth is a great mirror shattered by time into a hundred thousand pieces, allowing everyone who has a piece to declare that they have The Truth." Sufi Gabril Kahlil

"God is a symbol of God." Paul Tillich

"Religion is a defense against the experience of God." Carl Gustav Jung

"The attitude of faith is the very opposite of clinging to belief, of holding on." Alan Watts

"The materialist fundamentalists are funnier than the Christian fundamentalists, because they think they're rational!" Robert Anton Wilson

"Whenever people are certain they understand our peculiar situation here on this planet, it is because they have accepted a religious Faith or a secular Ideology (Ideologies are the modern form of Faiths) and just stopped thinking." Robert Anton Wilson

"Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort,
or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence." Robert Anton Wilson

"In (Gordiano) Bruno's day the 3 terms were divided up differently, you had science and mysticism on one side, and religion on the other side. Science and mysticism are alike in their struggle against religion. They were both based on experience and respect for the individual. The idea of science and mysticism was go out and discover for yourself. Find out what works, find out how the universe is actually structured and how you relate to the structure of the universe. And so there were basically 2 areas of scientific exploration, the external and the internal. But they were both pursued by the same method, the experimental method."
Robert Anton Wilson

"In heaven there is no religion, thank God." Gandhi

"Take care of the people, and God almighty will take care of himself."
Kurt Vonnegut

"True spirituality should have the result of making a person calmer, happier, more peaceful, so engaging in training or a method of bringing about inner discipline within ones mind is the essence of a religious life, an inner discipline that has the purpose of cultivating these positive mental states." Tenzin Gyatso


"It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God.
It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." Thomas Jefferson

"It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows." Epictetus

"When I'm watching the news and my daughter walks in and choose to ask: 'Why were all those people on the floor, sleeping, covered in red?' I told her, that they were looking for God, but found religion instead." De La Soul

"All around one the True Believers trudge by, mouths grim, brows furrowed, ulcers and worse eating at their innards. This desperate company of oddfellows (Thoreau) live in what psychologists call 'cognitive dissonance.' Because their reality-maps are, one and all, too small to cover the vast, eerie, amusing world in which we live, they are perpetually frustrated: the world does not live up to their fixed beliefs. They are all convinced that there is something radically wrong with the universe itself, or with the rest of humanity, and they never suspect that the real trouble is in their own rigid and robotic nervous systems." Robert Anton Wilson

There is a parable of Blind men and the elephant, one felt the side of the elephant and said it was a wall, the second felt the tip of a tusk and was convinced it was a spear, the third said it was a snake as he felt the trunk, the fourth had grabbed a paw and said it was a tree trunk, the fifth who felt an ear said it was a fan and the sixth who had the tail said it was like a rope. All started arguing about who had told the truth. While each knew a part of the image, none knew the whole. The moral of the story is that reality may be viewed differently depending upon one's perspective, and argueing about it is ridiculous since no human knows the entire truth.

It's always more interesting to talk to someone who keeps looking for the truth than to someone who's sure they've found it.

"The difference between a cult and a religion is the number of members and the size of the bank account." Robert Anton Wilson

"Whoever cannot find a temple in his heart, the same can never find his heart in any temple." Mikhail Naimy

"The data stream has been corrupted, return to first principles." Terence McKenna

"The discovery of this reality is hindered rather than helped by belief, whether one believes in God or believes in atheism. We must make here a clear distinction between belief and faith, because, in general practice, belief has come to mean a state of mind which is almost the opposite of faith. Belief, as I use the word here, is the insistence that the truth is what one would “lief” or wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be. Faith has no preconceptions; it is a plunge into the unknown. Belief clings, but faith lets go. In this sense of the word, faith is the essential virtue of science, and likewise of any religion that is not self-deception." Alan Watts

What I personally find hilarious is that atheists and new agers think their BS (belief system) is different from a religion.

Religion is for people afraid of going to hell.
Spirituality is for people who have been there.

If there's only one God, stop fighting about the name!

God is too big to fit into one religion.

God: Religion is easy, I'm talking about faith. You're gonna help me change that.
Jerry: Me? But I don't even belong to any church!?
God: Neither do I!
(from the movie Oh, God 1977)

A unified 'religion' would not bring about peace, but stupidity.

Soylent Green


Soylent Green Trailer

Soylent Green (full movie link) is a 1973 dystopian science fiction movie depicting a bleak future in which overpopulation, global warming, and the resulting severe damage to the ecology have led to widespread unemployment and poverty.

Real fruit, vegetables, and meat are rare, expensive commodities, and much of the population survives on processed food rations, including "soylent green" wafers

The film overlays the genres of science fiction and the police procedural as it depicts the efforts of New York City police detective Robert Thorn (Charlton Heston, R.I.P.) and elderly police researcher Sol Roth (Edward G. Robinson) to investigate the brutal murder of a wealthy businessman named William R. Simonson (Joseph Cotten). Thorn and Roth uncover clues which suggest that it is more than simply a bungled burglary.

The film is loosely based upon the 1966 science fiction novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison

    "Animals only suffer physical pain; humans suffer both physical pain and an additional psychological pain from the thought (verbal construct), 'I should not have to suffer this.' This causes us to struggle for social progress, better medicine etc. but it also causes us to feel the same bitter sense of 'injustice' or 'wrongness' when there is nothing concretely that can be done to ease the pain. In short, without language we'd have less suffering and no progress."

    "The aim of the work of Aristotle and the work of the non-aristotelians is similar, except for the date of our human development and the advance of science. The problem is wether we shall deal with science and scientific methods of 350 B.C. or of today. In general-semantics, in building up a non-aristotelian system, the aims of Aristotle are preserved yet scientific methods are brought up to date."
    Alfred Korzybski

    E-Prime
    "'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)
    Any proposition containing the word "is" creates a linguistic structural confusion which will eventually give birth to serious fallacies.

    E-Prime is abolishing all forms of the verb "to be" from the English Language.
    Why? Because nothing 'is' and everything changes.
    A conversation tends to get a lot less aggressive & retarded when you say for example 'it seems to me...' instead of 'it is'.
    When you say something 'is', it only 'is' according to you - so why not say it like it 'is' ;) and express yourself more consciously?

    eg:
    1A. The electron is a wave.
    1B. The electron appears as a wave when measured with instrument-l.

    2A. The electron is a particle.
    2B. The electron appears as a particle when measured with instrument-2.

    3A. John is lethargic and unhappy.
    3B. John appears lethargic and unhappy in the office.
    etc

    Alan Watts on 'nouns & things'

    And so what I would call a basic problem we've got to go through first, is to understand that there are no such things as things. That is to say separate things, or separate events. That that is only a way of talking. If you can understand this, you're going to have no further problems. I once asked a group of high school children 'What do you mean by a thing?' First of all, they gave me all sorts of synonyms. They said 'It's an object,' which is simply another word for a thing; it doesn't tell you anything about what you mean by a thing. Finally, a very smart girl from Italy, who was in the group, said 'a thing is a noun.' And she was quite right. A noun isn't a part of nature, it's a part of speech. There are no nouns in the physical world.
    There are no separate things in the physical world, either. The physical world is wiggly. Clouds, mountains, trees, people, are all wiggly. And only when human beings get to working on things--they build buildings in straight lines, and try to make out that the world isn't really wiggly. But here we are, sitting in this room all built out of straight lines, but each one of us is as wiggly as all get-out.

    from 'The Nature of Consciousness'

    Alan Watts on 'symbols & meaning'

    Matter comes from the Sanskrit word 'matr' which means to measure. Lay out say the foundations say for a building, so we get to 'maya', and maya is generally translated illusion, although it also means magic, creative power.

    The word illusion, switch over, we get that from Latin and that comes from 'ludere;' to play (note from webmaster: and survives in english as 'lewd' :p). Let's pretend that we matter, haha! And so also from the root matr, you get 'mitar,' that is also to measure, you get 'meter' in Greek, 'mater' in Latin, which means mother, the mother of Buddha was called Maya. Marie, 'ma' again is the mother of Jesus, ma ma ma ma ma!

    But 'ma', you see, is a matter of form, pattern. The Chinese call the basic principle of nature 'li', and the character for 'li' means the markins in jade, the fibre in muscle, the grain in wood. So organic pattern. And that what's going on, and there's no stuff involved, what stuff is, is a pattern seen out of focus, where it becomes fuzzy, like kapok, kapok is the stuffing of a cushion, and that stuff is seen like goo, but when we examine the kapoc closely, we find structure, that's what you'll find and there never will be anything else. Crazy because it completely flouts our common sense!

    We say but surely, when philosophers beat tables that are in front of them, and they say it is there, bang, you know. It must be something that is stuff that is substantial. The only reason you can't move your hand through a table because the table is moving too fast. Haha. It's like trying to put your fingers through an electric fan, only it's going much faster than an electric fan. Anything solid is going so fast, that there is no way to get this trhough it. That's all. So you say what is it that's going so fast, well that question is based on a grammatical illusion, the grammatical illusion is that all verbs have to have subjects. Can you imagine anything more weird than the idea that a verb or an action or event, must be set into motion by a noun. A non-event or thing.

    What's the difference between a thing and an event, I can't for the life of me tell! We say this is a fist, that's a noun. What happens to it when I open my hand, this thing is unaccountably dissapeared, so I should call this a fisting, and this is a handing. It may also be a pointing. So we could devise a language such as that of the Nuku Indians, where there are no nouns, there are only verbs. Chinese is very close to that. I think the superimposition of the idea of noun and verb on the Chinese language is a western invention. I can't think of any Chinese word for a noun.

    But all those languages of Indo-European origin have nouns and verbs in them. They have agents and operations, and that's one of the basic snags when we divide the world into operations and agents, doers and doings. Then we ask such silly questions as 'who knows,' 'who does it,' what does it,' when the what that's supposed to do it is the same as the doing! You can very easily see that the whole process of the universe may be understood as process. Nobody's doing it because when you go back to doing it, you go back to the military analogy the chain of command, the boss who goes bang, and the object to base, it's a very crude idea, very unsophisticated, so if you can bear it we have suddenly eliminated a spook. And the spook was called stuff.

    from 'Symbols and Meaning'

    The Unconscious Mind does not process Negation
    Choose your words wisely!

    The mind focuses on what it directs its attention to. Words and languages have been manipulated to suit governmental control over the populace.

    When you repeat to yourself: I will NOT fail, I will NOT fail, I will NOT fail!
    What are you focusing on? On what you're negating, thus in this example: failing! Instead we should learn to say and think what we DO mean.

    For instance, I saw another bulletin about the Anti-War movement... the absolute failure of what's called "The Anti-War Movement" to accomplish anything is simply on its focus: Anti-War, the mind only sees War.
    Mother Theresa wouldn't join an anti-war protest once, she said if you start calling it a peace-protest then I might join.

    Let's take a look at some of the ten commandments, at what they state - how they are actually processed:
    Thou shalt not make for thyself an idol - go ahead
    Thou shalt not make wrongful use of the name of thy God - please do
    Thou shalt not murder - imagine murdering someone
    Thou shalt not commit adultery - look at that chick!
    Thou shalt not steal - take it
    Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor - you could though
    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house - you already do by me bringing it to your attention
    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife - same same

    Imagine if these lines were replaced by the positive reverse and how that would chime through history.

    Let's take a look at warnings:
    For instance, a WWE commercial says: PLEASE DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!
    the DON'T is in red, seemingly to emphasize, but actually the mind sees PLEASE TRY THIS AT HOME clearer. Consider a slippery floor warning sign, it shows someone falling!

    Now you can analyze the crap you're bombarded with daily much better in the media and on the street, soaps, shows, advertisements, the news always cleverly use the power of suggestion for many purposes to make you feel insecure, sick, unfulfilled, unpopular, and all that other shit you don't like so you can go spend money on whatever shit they're selling to make you feel better.

    The truth is you only need to learn more about language, your psychology, learn about mind expansion, practice mind expanding practices daily instead of watching TV, and peace and fulfillment will come with ease, at no cost. (and screw all these organisations that are charging heaps of money to teach you any meditation or technique, there are excellent ones that are free and won't take monthly wages!)

    Terence Mckenna on the evolution of language

    Part of what makes it difficult for us to think about language clearly in english, is that this word language is used by us to mean spoken language and it also means the general class of linguistic activity as in computer language, body language, so forth and so on.

    And to think clearly about language we need to have a clear distinction between spoken language and the general syntactical organisation of reality. Language, because that is old, honeybees do it, dolphins, termites, octopi they all do it different ways, there is much of language in nature. In fact you could argue that all of nature is a linguistic enterprise because the DNA essentialy is a symbolic system. Those codons which code for protein are arbitrarily assigned, assigned in other words by convention, there is no chemical relationship between the codons and the proteins they code for - anymore than there is a relationship between an english word and the thing it intends, those are just conventionalised by probability over time. So language is deep in nature.

    What is not deep in nature, is speech, speech is as artificial as the water wheel, the bicycle pump, the tesla coil and the space shuttle. Somebody figured this out, somewhere. So well then to say this is hard to understand, this is hard to picture how it could happen. Well here's how I think how it happened. It's that, all kinds, all non-genetic behaviours, which are called - reasonably enough ethogenetic behaviours are nevertheless, they're not simply expressions of free will. They are under the control of a looser system of rules, than the genetic rules which are chemical and absolute, the ethogenetic behaviours are under the control of syntactical constraints, in other words we need to expand the concept of syntax from the rules which govern the grammer of a spoken language to the rules which govern the behaviour of any complex system.

    So for example, before speech among human beings I think it was probably very touchy feely, if you watch monkeys you see this, they touch eachother, they stroke, they grunt, they groom, they goose, they push, they do all of these things. The repertoire of this kind of behaviour if you're good at it, may be on the order of having 4 or 5000 words in your vocabulary.

    Well when we watch primates do this kind of behaviour we don't think of it as a language, but in fact it is, it's a gestural language. A couple of years ago some research was done when people took preverbal infants, and they thaught them standard american sign language before they could speak. So these little tiny children could sign pick me up, please change me, where's daddy, I'm hungry, I wanna watch tv, before they could ever utter a word. Well now what we're always told about spoken language is it's this miracle and we're genetically hardwired for it, well these experiments seem to imply we're even more genetically hardwired for standard american sign language which is something very few of us will ever learn to use, what does this mean? Well it means that the gestural capacity is deeper than the ability to verbalise and hence probably older, so I think there was a gestural language as complex as standard english probably in place before everyone uttered a word.

    What the psychedelics seem to suggest is you can get so hyped up on tryptamines that your body goes into some kind of almost convulsive shock and the normally accoustically modulated processing of language flows over into the voice box and you begin to literally articulate syntax. You begin to make a noise which is a tracking noise for this ongoing syntactical stuff that's organising gestural intent and it's like going from carving in stone to colour tv. You are a listener, it immediately transfers loyalty to this much more spectacular form of behaviour, and so it's like literally that the words burst forth full blown based on a platform of gestural syntax that have been maybe million of years in its formation, it was just this ability to redirect the energy of syntactical intent through the body, so instead of coming out of the end of the fingers, it came out of the end of the tongue flapping in the airstream and this thing happened.

    It's amazing to me that the straight linguist, if you go to an academic university and study linguistics, will teach you that language is no more than 35 to 40.000 years old. That's like yesterday, I mean: fire is half a million years, chipped flint a million and a half years, language 35.000 years old. Language is everything we are, everything we do you can't think without it, you can't do anything without it. And yet if it's that new, than what it represents is simply a technology, a form of media that squeezed out other forms of media. It's not hard to see why after all it works in the dark, that's good. It allows politics, you can make speeches to large groups of people, and it's well, it's just very portable. It's the cleanest technology ever put in place.

    When you think about it it's one of the weirdest abilities human beings exibit, when you go forward to reading you realize this is an animal in some kind of informational tizzy, I mean the idea that you would make marks in clay which signify tongue noises which signify designated objects so that these pieces of clay could be lugged hundreds of miles so that other people can reconstruct your thought by looking at these pieces of clay. This is bizarre for animal behaviour, this is absolutely, how they managed to do that?!

    Dr. Jacques Vallée about important findings in UFO phenomena


    Dr. Jacques Vallée discusses the wordwide distribution of unidentified aerial sightings

    "Skeptics, who flatly deny the existence of any unexplained phenomenon in the name of 'rationalism,' are among the primary contributors to the rejection of science by the public. People are not stupid and they know very well when they have seen something out of the ordinary. When a so-called expert tells them the object must have been the moon or a mirage, he is really teaching the public that science is impotent or unwilling to pursue the study of the unknown." Confrontations

    "The 'medical examination' to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscient of the medieval tales of encounters with demons. It makes no sense in a sophisticated or technical framework: any intelligent being equipped with the scientific marvels that UFOs possess would be in a position to achieve any of these alleged scientific objectives in a shorter time and with fewer risks." Confrontations, p. 13

    "The symbolic display seen by the abductees is identical to the type of initiation ritual or astral voyage that is imbedded in the [occult] traditions of every culture...the structure of abduction stories is identical to that of occult initiation rituals...the UFO beings of today belong to the same class of manifestation as the [occult] entities that were described in centuries past."

    Drunvalo Melchizedek Explains What Happens During The Shift

    From The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life Volume 2:

    What usually happens is that when we approach this point in the precession where this change takes place, everything begins to break down - all the social structures,etc begin to dissolve and break down. The key that does it is the magnetic field of the Earth. Which as present-day science realizes may also be the key that enables the axis to shift in the first place through magneto- hydrodynamics, where the magnetic field supports a connection where liquid aspects of the earth's composition become solid. When the field collapses, some solids become liquid and become slippery. They have demonstrated this in laboratories. The magnetic field and the electromagnetic field are the key. The magnetic field is what we use to interpret who and what we think we are, and also to store our memory with. We need an exterior magnetic field to retain memory. We cannot live without some form of magnetic field. If you look at major cities all over the world, you will notice that the day before, after and during the full moon there is more rape and murder going on. The reason is that the full moon tends to cause a ripple in the magnetic field of the earth, and this change is enough to take people that are emotionally near the edge over the edge. The magnetic field affects the emotional body.

    The Collapse of the Magnetic Field
    Imagine a planet where you are at a point on the precession where things are starting to get out of balance. Suddenly the magnetic field of the Earth, over a very short period of time (usually three to six months) starts fluctuating a lot and undulating. What happens is that people start losing it. They go crazy. That is what breaks down all the structures of the planet. Without their balance, everything falls apart. The magnetic field will go away entirely for at least three and one half days. Usually you will see a buildup of chaos.

    Morphological Grid Interactions
    Every time one person plugs into the consciousness grid, they increase the signal from the grid. There will come a point where people will just start remembering and start breathing this way. Children will have the least problem. The older you are the harder it is.

    The Final Time of Axis Shift and Dimensional Interface
    Hopefully it won't really get crazy out there - if it does, that is where the idea of Armageddon comes in. If you look back through the records, you will see that when the axis shifted in 1400 A.D., in South America, they all started fighting and warring with each other, because their emotions got so strong. Hopefully, that won't happen.

    About five to six hours before the dimensional shift in consciousness, the process (which is usually tied to an axis shift) begins. Axis shifts and shifts in consciousness are usually tied together. In this case, the consciousness shift may happen before or after the axis shift. Usually they are simultaneous, and usually what happens in this period five or six hours before a dimensional shift is a visual phenomenon. This almost for certain will happen as 3rd and 4th dimension begin to interface, and our consciousness begins to move into 4th dimensional consciousness and 3rd dimensional consciousness begins to recede away. When that happens, synthetic manufactured objects which consist of materials which do not occur naturally on the Earth, begin to disappear over a wide gradient, depending what the materials are. They do not disappear all at once. When the grid of 3rd dimensional consciousness begins to break down along with the collapse of the magnetic field, these synthetic objects begin to disappear over this five or six hour period. Since axis/conscious/grid changes have happened continously for millions of years, this is why there are few manufactured objects from previous civilizations (some of which have been more advanced than ours) which remain to tell the tale.

    The fact that objects start to disappear really starts to make people who do not understand what is happening go crazy. That is why it is important to remember this. It is a natural process, and when this starts to happen you should get to a place that is natural, not inside an artificial structure. You want to be out on the earth. This is the reason why very advanced civilizations built structures out of natural materials, like stone. They make it through the dimensional changes and remain there.

    This is also why at the Taos pueblo, which is 1,400 years old, they are not allowed by tribal law to have anything synthetic in their buildings. They know that when the day of purification comes, they go in and remain centered.

    There is another phenomenon that will probably happen. As the dimensional interface occurs, 4th dimensional objects may appear in the 3rd dimensional world. They will be objects that will not seem to fit in anywhere with colors that will boggle your mind. These objects will impact your mind in ways you cannot understand. Since gradual movement through the interface is desired, do not touch any of these objects (to touch one would pull you instantly and fully into the 4th dimension) or look at them. They are mesmerizing, and looking at them will pull you more rapidly into the 4th.

    If you are calm and centered, you will be able to watch all of this for a time, but not for long. As soon as the magnetic field collapses, your field of view and vision will disappear and you will find yourself in a black void. The 3rd dimensional Earth, for all intents and purposes, will be gone for you. What happens to most people during this time is that they will fall asleep and start dreaming during this period, which lasts about three to four days. If you want you can just sit there, but realize that whatever you think is going to happen will happen. Realize that you are about to literally go through a kind of "birth" process into the 4th dimension, and don't worry about it. The process is perfect and natural, but fear is a big problem for humans on a 3rd dimensional level. This appears to be a new process, but it is very very old. You have done it before. At some time during the process you may in fact remember that you have done it before.

    The Other Side
    As the 4th dimensional world comes into perception, light comes back again. You will find yourself in a world the likes of which you have never seen (although you have, but you will not remember it because your memory has been erased so many times before). It will feel like a brand new place. All the colors and shapes and the feel of everything will be new. You will be perceptively just like you were when you came into 3rd dimensional conscious- ness, except that you will be the same size you are now. There are a lot of things that are very similar from world to world - one of them is the idea of the holy trinity (mother-father-child). As you enter into this brand new place, although you won't understand anything, you are going to see two beings standing there - mom and dad; they are going to be very big compared to you. They are going to be about ten to sixteen feet tall. One will be male and one will be female. These beings have a bond with you and will guide and protect you during your early formative period in this world. These beings do not have the kind of attachment to you that parents on Earth might have had. From the very beginning, they know that you are part of the Creator and recognize your divine nature. You will appear just like you are now, though more than likely naked, since any synthetic clothing will not have made it through the shift.

    You will come out the other side and be in this incredible reality with these two beings that you somehow feel this intense love towards, although you won't understand why. Although your physical form is exactly the same, the atomic structure in your body will have changed dramatically. Much of the denseness of the previous physical structure will have been converted into energy, and the atomic structure will be farther apart than before. Most of your body will have been converted into energy, but you won't know that.

    The Many Are Called - Few Are Chosen Scenario
    In the Bible, Jesus said "two of you shall be in bed and one of you I shall take". This speaks of a "many are called-few are chosen"scenario, which is often what happens, but you can only do so much to help someone. You will go through this process alone. It will be determined by your character and who you are.

    What usually happens is that some people go through and some do not make it through, but there is a third possibility - that someone will have just made it through. Jesus spoke of a parable about the wheat and the chaff as an analogy. The wheat that goes through had some weeds with it. Who takes the weeds out? The weeds do. You take yourself out. When you get to the 4th dimensional conscious- ness, most people don't know that you are creating the entire world and every- thing in it second by second by your thoughts and your feelings - every- thing. It is true in the 3rd dimension as well, but it is not realized because we have culturally put all these limitations on ourselves that we can't do anything. There, it's all inclusive and instantaneous. If you are there and you are not really ready for it and you start thinking negative thoughts and fear comes in, you will create a scenario which will result in your being thrown back into a lower dimension.

    At the same time, the "wheat" is going through, and sitting there and thinking "love, truth, beauty, peace and harmony" - and that is what happens. You start manifesting all of it. You become stable in the new reality because of what you are thinking and feeling - your character and who you are. Jesus, referring to this time, said "if you live by the sword you shall die by the sword" and "the meek shall inherit the Earth". Those who are there and not trying to protect, kill or anything else along those lines, but just being and thinking positive thoughts - that is what manifests, and you've just won the game.

    After the entities who are not resonant ("chaff") are gone and the resonant entities ("wheat") remain, one of the first things that begins to happen is that you begin to realize that "hey, whatever I think happens!". Usually people look at their bodies in this light and begin to change their appearance to suit whatever idealized image they have in mind - it's a childlike exercise. If you look at some of the non-terrestrial races, they are all tall, beautiful and healthy. The self-modification of body structure is a natural occurance from the 4th dimension onward. It is a creative expression. After that, other things become more interesting as activities.

    On Earth in the 3rd dimension, it takes roughly 18-21 years to go from a baby to someone who can go out and take care of themselves. On the 4th dimensional world, experientially, it takes about two years to go from your present size and state (when you first arrive) to an adult - and you start growing again. Your body grows, your head elongates in the back, and you end up looking like Ahknaton. This is what the Egyptian egg of metamorphosis was about.

    All this explains why it is essential that you maintain peace within during the first few hours of the dimensional interface and progression into the next area of dimensional consciousness. Again, work on your character. The moment you establish the Merkaba during this time, you've made it. Its the inner technology that is most important. Helping others is very important. As you understand more of what this is about, you have a moral responsibility to help if they ask.


    Your Cosmic Development
    During this shift, there is a polarity with your "higher self" which merges into your current state of consciousness to the point where you and it become one.

    A very high level of dimensional consciousness has as its "body" the planet Earth. You, on a high level of consciousness, have as your body the body you are currently using. Literally, someday you will become suns and stars in the sky - it is part of the process of life.

    Your new "Parents"
    Relative to these beings you will encounter, your new "parents", you already will have a "karmic" bond with them; they will guide and protect you during the first two years until you can go out on your own. They realize your true divine nature as part of the creation, unlike Earth parents, many of whom view their children as "possessions" to be "controlled". If your new parents wanted to tell you something, you would simply experience it. If they wanted to tell you about a room, you would be in it. It is sort of like an extension of a higher level of dream time from the 42+2 level of consciousness. The 4th dimensional realm is really not that much different than the 3rd dimension in some ways. It's still a world which has a physical aspect to it.

    Injection of Christ/Unity Consciousness Models Into The Planetary Grids
    Many individual entities have manifested themselves on this planet in order to illustrate the possibilities in unity consciousness. After the introduction of writing, a model was need in order to inject an example into the akashic/ morphic field and into the memory of man that unity consciousness was an option. Jesus, who had been through a great number of dimensional levels, was the entity who accomplished that purpose. Because of his efforts, the IDEA of man-unity consciousness is within the MEMORY of man to act as a model. It is also within the grid around the planet.

    First, you have Akhenaten as one of the Pharaohs, illustrating unity consciousness - "that which we would become". He walked around for a few years and put that into the grid. He created the seed from which the Essene Brotherhood grew. From them eventually came Mary and Joseph, who made it possible for the introduction again of unity consciousness through Yeshua Ben Joseph, referred to as Jesus. When Jesus started telling people "love each other, love your enemies", no one wanted to hear it - people were in duality consciousness and it didn't make any sense. Knowing now about 4th dimensional consciousness - it should make sense. The words he spoke are powerful and true, and we need to take the knowledge and make it part of our lives.

    Enlightenment Reason or Occult Conspiracy?

    By Daniel Pinchbeck

    What holds our world together is not only the laws of physics, but language, myth and story. Our narratives create the framework in which our actions and our intentions have meaning, or at least some kind of order. It is very hard for us to live without any coherence at all. It may even be impossible, as our minds immediately begin to weave together some type of fable to support whatever it is we find ourselves doing.

    Lately, I find myself switching back and forth between divergent models or myths of reality and seeking to integrate them. One of them is the story of progress and reason, the inheritance of the secular and scientific Enlightenment. The progressive believes that a flawed society can be improved by rational policy and political pressure. The world can be made better for more people, inequities reduced and healthcare guaranteed. Although he has been strategic in his pronouncements, Barack Obama seems the model of a progressive reformer, promoting the type of sensible policies that led to the New Deal and the Great Society.

    The other mythic structure that entices me is occult and conspiratorial. According to this story, there is a hidden agenda beneath the façade of chaotic events. This agenda is orchestrated by “them,” that group of elite cabals and secret societies, an amalgam of Free Masons, Vatican priests, the descendents of the Nazi scientists brought to the U.S. after World War Two, and so on. To approach this concealed dimension of world affairs, to separate accurate insights from disinformation, is extremely difficult, and perhaps impossible. The quest involves long reading lists of small-press and self-published tomes and many hours on YouTube, watching lectures presented by anxious men in drab conferences. From such unreliable sources, one learns that much alien technology has already been recovered and reverse-engineered, that a New World Order of total social control is being orchestrated, that the Ark of the Covenant is a torsion field generator perhaps hidden in the Pentagon, that shapeshifting reptilians are controlling everything, and other tidbits.

    Daily Dedroidify: Synchronicity
    "Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous."
    Albert Einstein

    We've all experienced coincidence, "it's just a coincidence" we rationalize then. Synchronicities however are meaningful coincidences; a term coined by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, in his own words:
    "Synchronicity reveals the meaningful connections between the subjective and objective world."

    First notice and appreciate your synchronicities,
    (even overlapping in 'real' world, dreams and imagination!) at the very least they will make you smile or think!

    Frank Joseph
    In the amazing book "Synchronicity And You: Understanding the Role of Meaningful Coincidence" by Frank Joseph, the author lists several subdivisions (these are nowhere near conclusive and should only be seen as a means of classification of examples) of synchronicity experienced in his own life, the lives of 100 volunteers and examples of history to help you become more aware of synchronicities in your life.

    The subdivisions he made in the book are:
    Objects, Numbers, Natural/Animal, Preminitions, Predictive & Simultanious dreams, Telepathy, Riddles, Source indicators, Parallel lives, Life imitates art, Warnings, Death, Rescue, Reincarnation, Helpful directions, Moira (higher calling) & Transforming experiences.

    Examples from the book:
    # Carl Jung himself had a patient once who was depressed and such a rationalist her situation was degrading for months, one day she had a dream of a Scarab which she couldn't understand at all or where it came from. As Jung moved towards the window while analyzing the dream, the closest insect to a Scarab in Switzerland, a golden beatle flew and hit the window and sat there for a few seconds. This so startled the woman that finally she gave up the 'pure reason' and was soon cured with Jung's methods. This ties into the collective unconcious very interestingly as the Scarab was the Egyptian symbol of... rebirth :).
    # Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, The French Jesuit priest trained as a paleontologist and a philosopher. He abandoned a literal interpretation of creation in the Book of Genesis in favor of a metaphorical interpretation. Therefor he was banned to China... where in December 1929 he took part in the important discovery of Sinanthropus pekinensis, or Peking Man.
    # I'll give one example out of the book of Parallel Lives too:
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart & spanish composer Juan Arrigia (known after his death as the spanish Mozart, but largely unknown outside of Spain), by the author's own investigation after hearing Arrigia on the radio and thinking he recognized Mozart, he found that both shared some amazing synchronicities. Both gifted persons were prodigies, they both left their native country to become succesful in Paris as composers and musicians, Juan's first and only symphony & Mozarts Parisian and later symphonies were in Major D, their styles are very similar as Juan comes nearest to Mozart, even Mozart imitations by Haydn, Brahms and Chopin were, in contrast to Arrigia's, still distinguishable as their own. Both men were born on the same day, Mozart 27 jan 1756, Arrigia 27 jan 1806. Their birth names were both Latin & Spanish versions of John & Christopher, Mozart's was Johannes Chrystostomus and Arrigia's were Juan Crisostomo. One contrast is the fame of Mozart after his death, and the obscurity of Arrigia. For more parallel lives see JFK & Abraham Lincoln, the life & death of Henry Lawton linked with Geronimo, and even the author himself and Ignatius Donnelly (the father of Atlantology!). For this and other synchronicities pick up the book, you won't regret it!
    Another recommendation is Jean Shinoda Bolen - The Tao of Psychology: Synchronicity and Self (Living Consciously with Synchronicity in dutch).

    I experience synchronicities nearly daily, some small, some big!
    Frank Joseph advises people to start a Synchronicity Diary, to not only remember them better, just like a Dream Diary it also increases the frequency of them just as a dream diary increases recall of dreams.

    "The secret of the world is the tie between person and event."
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    "Throughout the universe there's a network of wires stretching to infinity. The horizontal wires are placed in space; the vertical in time. Everywhere where these wires cross eachother, there's an individual. And every individual is a crystal bead. The big light of an Absolute Being enlightens and penetrates each crystal bead. And every crystal bead reflects not only the light of all other crystals in the network, but also every other reflection, from all corners of the Cosmos." The Rigveda - Indra's Net
