Philip K. Dick: The Simulacra (part 1)

The Simulacra (link has spoilers) is a 1964 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick. The novel portrays a future totalitarian society apparently dominated by a permanent matriarch, Nicole Thibodeaux. It revolves around the themes of reality and illusionary beliefs, as do many of Dick's works.

It's also so damn excellent I'll have to do at least two posts about it, cause I'm making way too much notes. I don't think quotations out of a book spoil the book, you'll have forgotten the quotes long by the time you read it after this post entices you to do so ;)

"When did the position of First Lady begin to assume stature greater than that of President? ... In the corner of his living room the television set said taaaaanggg, indicating that it was about to come on... A special, dealing with activities at the White House, he speculated. Another tour, perhaps, or a thorough scrutiny (in massively-detailed depth) about a new hobby or passion of Nicole's. Has she taken up collecting cone-china cups? If so, we will have to view each and every damn cup."

"...and he was left, as so often before, merely to guess at the reasoning of the Party bureaucracy. He could not genuinely fathom its motives, and in a sense for that he was glad. It proved that he was not spiritually a part of it."

In the book society is stratified into Ges (German geheimnisträger, "bearers of the secret" - the elite) and Bes (German befehalträger, "implementers of instruction" - professional and artisanal) classes:

"...Any failure would have betrayed to the Bes the secret, the Geheimnis, which distinguished the elite (the Ges), the establishment of the United States of Europe and America; their possession of the one or more secrets made them into Geheimnisträger, bearers of the secret, rather than Befehlträger, mere carry-outer of instructions."

"The Autobahn fatigued Chic Strikerock, with its centrally controlled cars and wheels spinning up invisible runnels in massed procession. In hi sown individual car he felt as if he were participating in ablack magic ritual - as if he and the other commuters had put their lives into the hands of a force better left undiscussed."

"Old-time civilization, Chic said to himself. The next layer down, just on the verge of being uncovered by the autoshovels operating in the airless, near-weightless void of mid-space, of the big-planet moons.
We're being robbed, he decided. The next layer down will be comic books, contraceptives, empty Coke bottles. But they - the authorities - won't tell us. Who wants to find out that the entire solar system has been exposed to Coca Cola over a period of two million years? It was, for him, impossible to imagine a civilization - of any kind of life form - that had not contrived Coke. Otherwise, how would it authentically be called a 'civilization'?"

"Something sizzled to the right of him. A commercial, made by Theodorus Nitz, the worst house of all, had attached itself to his car. 'Get off,' he warned it. But the commercial, well-adhered began to crawl, buffeted by the wind, towards the door and the entrance crack. It would soon have squeezed in and would be haranguing him in the cranky, garbagey fashion of the Nitz advertisements.
He could, as it came through the crack, kill it. It was alive, terribly mortal; the ad agencies, like nature, squandered hordes of them.
The commercial, fly-sized, began to buzz out its message as soon as it managed to force entry. 'Say! Haven't you sometimes said to yourself, I'll bet other people in restaurants can see me! And you're puzzled as to what to do about this serious, baffling problem of being conspicuous, especially-'
Chic crushed it with his foot."

"'I think,' Emil Stark said, 'that if the Third Reich is given the weapons it needs it will survive its victory by perhaps five years - and very possibly not even that long. It's doomed by its very nature; there's absolutely no mechanism in the Nazi Party by which a successor to der Führer can be produced. Germany will fragment, become a collection of small, nasty, quarrelling states as it was before Bismark. My government is convinced of this, Mrs Thibodeaux. Remember Hess's introduction of Hitler at one of the great Party rallies. "Hitler ist Deutschland." "Hitler is Germany." He was correct. Hence after Hitler what? The deluge. And Hitler knew it. As a matter of fact, there is some possibility that Hitler deliberately led his people to defeat. But that is a rather convoluted psychoanalytic theory. I personally find it too baroque for credence."

"A man, when he emigrated, could buy neighbours, buy the simulated presence of life, the sound an dmotion of human activity - or at least its mechanical near-substitute - to bolster his morale in the new environment of unfamiliar stimuli and perhaps, god forbid, no stimuli at all. And in addition to this primary psychological gain there was a practical secondary advantage as well. The famnexdo group of simulacra developed the parcel of land, tilled it and planted it, irrigated it, made it fertile, highly productive. And the yield went to the human settler because the famnexdo group, legally speaking, occupied the peripheral portions of his land.
The famnexdo were actually not next-door at all; they were part of their owner's entourage. Communication with them was in essence a circular dialogue with oneself; the famnexdo, if they were functioning properly, picked up the covert hopes and dreams of the settler and detailed them back in an articulated fashion. Therapeutically, this was helpful, although from a cultural standpoint, it was a trifle sterile."

"Tough, I mean, mind your own darn business. Who asked for your artificial contrived opinion?"

Daily Dedroidify: Eckhart Tolle

Daily Dedroidify: Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle is a spiritual teacher and writer, born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of 29, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation and marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher.

He has written four books including the "The Power of Now", a #1 New York Times best-seller that has been translated into over 30 languages, and more recently (2005), "A New Earth" and currently travels and teaches throughout the world.

He is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition, but excludes none. His profound yet simple and practical teachings have helped thousands of people find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of his teachings lies the transformation of individual and collective human consciousness - a global spiritual awakening.

1. You are not your thoughts. You are the awareness behind the thoughts. Thoughts are often negative and painful, yearning for or fearing something in the future, complaining about something in the present or fearing a matter from the past. However, the thoughts are not you; they are a construct of the ego. Awareness of your thoughts without being caught up in them is the first step to freedom.

2. Only the present moment exists. That is where life is (indeed it is the only place life can truly be found). Becoming aware of the 'now' has the added benefit that it will draw your attention away from your (negative) thoughts. Use mindfulness techniques to fully appreciate your surroundings and everything you are experiencing. Look and listen intently. Give full attention to the smallest details.

3. Accept the present moment. It is resistance to the present moment that creates most of the difficulties in your life. However, acceptance does not mean that you cannot take action to rectify the situation you are in. What is important is to drop resistance so that you let the moment be, and that any action arises from deeper awareness rather than from resistance. The vast majority of pain in a person's life comes from resistance to what is.

4. Observe The Painbody. Years of conditioned thought patterns, individually and collectively, have resulted in habitual emotional reactions with an apparent personality of their own. During 'painbody attacks' we become completely identified with this 'pain identity' and respond from its agenda - which is to create more pain for ourselves and others. Observing the painbody is awareness itself arising - as it allows humans to separate from this unconscious identification with pain. (Painbodies also attract other painbodies, as in misery seeks misery.)


"Is suffering really necessary? Yes and no. If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you, no humility, no compassion."

"Enlightenment is a state of deep and complete acceptation of what is. Then we become what we really are, the spaciousness beyond form. The yes to the now is the doorway."

"Normal means mad, we are moving beyond normal. Please don't be normal. That's the worst thing!"

"The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness with Being. It is a state of connectedness with something immeasurable and indestructible, something that, almost paradoxically, is essentially you and yet is much greater than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and form."

Army Tests Yoga & Meditation for Post-Traumatic Stress

The military is scrambling for new ways to treat the brain injuries and post-traumatic stress of troops returning home from war.

And every kind of therapy -- no matter how far outside the accepted medical form -- is being considered. The Army just unveiled a $4 million program to investigate everything from "spiritual ministry, transcendental meditation, [and] yoga" to "bioenergies such as Qi gong, Reiki, [and] distant healing" to mend the psyches of wounded troops.

"Music, animal-facilitated therapy, art, dance/movement, massage therapy, EMDR [Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing] program evaluation, virtual reality, acupuncture, spiritual ministry, transcendental meditation, [and] yoga," might all be considered worth of the military's largess. So would "biologically-based treatments, botanicals, and nutritional supplements for enhancing cognitive function and mood in patients with trauma spectrum disorders, including TBI and/or PTSD, depression, anxiety, and/or substance dependence/abuse." Even proposals for wild-sounding "therapies using bioenergies such as Qi gong, Reiki, distant healing and acupuncture" would be accepted.

Four million for healing. Billions for killing.
Healing warriors are what this world needs!

This is featured on an audiobook by David Hawkins called "The Highest Level of Enlightenment". (I am quite skeptical about his kinesiological 'polling' though, more about this later). Supposedly listening to this or chanting along (good luck with this vid!) will elevate your consciousness, as anything positive will elevate your consciousness. I get a little high from it I must say, hehe. There are multiple tracks on the audiobooks with a guided piece to hum along with the easier parts and it's quite the fun meditation.

Secrets of the Kabbalah

Secrets of the Kabbalah (Decoding the Past): 1-6 & The rest

Once exclusively reserved for study by ultra-religious male scholars of Judaism, Kabbalah has recently become known as a multi-million dollar, celebrity-endorsed phenomenon. SECRETS OF KABBALAH strips away the hype and demystifies the writings that have been studied by Jewish scholars for thousands of years. Is the Kabbalah of the stars the same Kabbalah that Jewish scholars have studied for generations? Even as more and more people are seen wearing the red string bracelets associated with Kabbalah, the original teachings behind this seemingly new fad are in fact understood by precious few.

When we reach a Higher Dimension of Consciousness

"When we look at the causal world, it is rigidly bound by cause and effect. But when we reach a higher dimension of consciousness we find that the rigid walls of matter melt. Space and time lose their rigidity, and there is a mingling of the past, the present, and the future.

Looking at the whole thing from this point of view, what we think about the universe - the laws, the effect and cause - is a product of our own consciousness. In our dimension of consciousness, the world is not illusory. It is real. But in the next higher state of consciousness it loses its solidity."
Gopi Krishna

Daily Dedroidify: Science!

Daily Dedroidify: Never forget that 'reasonable' science was founded... by an Angel... in a dream...

The following is from Terence Mckenna's Tree of Knowledge:
"...Till recently, I thought that that was the end of the story but there is a coda that is very amusing, if nothing else. In that Hapsburgian army, there was a young soldier of fortune, only 19 years old, still wet behind the ears, knowing nothing, happily soldiering and wenching his way around Europe while he decided what to do with himself and his name was Rene Descartes, a Frenchman. Descartes, in his later years, reminisced about his period as a soldier in this army and I like to think that it was Descartes who actually murdered Maier. One of my ambitions is to write a play or a novel in which these two confront each other in a back alley of burning Prague and carry on a debate about the future of Europe before Michael Maier falls to the sword of Descartes. That may be apocryphal, but what is not apocryphal is that this Hapsburgian army, having laid siege and destroyed the alchemical kingdom, began to retreat across Europe that Fall and by Mid-September was camped near the town of Uolm in Southern Germany. By a strange coincidence, Uolm is the birthplace of Einstein some hundreds of years later.
But on the night of September 16th, Descartes had a dream and in this dream an angel appeared to him, this is documented by his own hand, and the angel said to Descartes, "The conquest of nature is to be achieved through measure and number." And that revelation lay the basis for modern science. Rene Descartes is the founder of the distinction between the res verins and the res extensia, the founder of modern science, the founder of the scientific method that created the philosophical engines that created the modern world. How many scientists, working at their workbenches, understand that an angel chartered modern science? It’s the alchemical angel which will not die. It returns again and again to guide the destinies of nations and peoples toward an unimaginable conclusion."

mainstream science is like pop music

This post is not attacking science, this page is attacking materialist science which is serving as the New Inquisition against anything that doesn't support their fundamentalist materialist belief system. We are aiming to join mysticism and science again as they are one and the same.

"Magicians and scientists are, on the face of it, poles apart. Certainly, a group of people who often dress strangely, live in a world of their own, speak a specialized language and frequently make statements that appear to be in flagrant breach of common sense have nothing in common with a group of people who often dress strangely, speak a specialized language, live in ... er ..." :p
Terry Pratchett

Robert Anton Wilson about the The New Inquisition: Our dogmatic materialist mainstream scientific community.
DAB: One of your recent books is The New Inquisition: Irrational Rationalism and the Citadel of Science. Maybe you could tell us a little bit about this book.
RAW: I coined the term irrational rationalism because those people claim to be rationalists, but they're governed by such a heavy body of taboos. They're so fearful, and so hostile, and so narrow, and frightened, and uptight and dogmatic. I thought it was a fascinating paradox: irrational rationalists. Later on I found out I didn't invent that. Somebody else who wrote an article on CSICOP, that's the group they all belong to: Committee for Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal. Somebody else who wrote about them also used the term irrational rationalism. It's a hard term to resist when you think about those people.
I wrote this book because I got tired satirizing fundamentalist Christianity, I had done enough of that in my other books. I decided to satirize fundamentalist materialism for a change, because the two are equally comical. All fundamentalism is comical, unless you believe in it, in which case you'd become a fanatic yourself, and want everybody else to share your fundamentalism. But if you're not a fundamentalist yourself, fundamentalists are the funniest people on the planet. The materialist fundamentalists are funnier than the Christian fundamentalists, because they think they're rational!
DAB: They call themselves skeptical.
RAW: Yes, but they're not skeptical! They're never skeptical about anything except the things they have a prejudice against. None of them ever says anything skeptical about the AMA, or about anything in establishment science or any entrenched dogma. They're only skeptical about new ideas that frighten them. They're actually dogmatically committed to what they were taught when they were in college, which was about 1948-53, somewhere in that period. If you go back and study what was being taught in college in those days as the latest scientific theories, you find out that's what these people still believe. They haven't had a new idea in 30 years, that's all that happened to them. They just rigidified, they crystallized around 1960.
(Taken from a 1988 Interview)

a: "It's nonsense," b: "It is not important," c: "I always said it was a good idea," and d: "I thought of it first." Arthur C. Clarke explains the four stages in the way scientists react to the development of anything of a revolutionary nature.

Robert Anton Wilson on Science and Mysticism
"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."

John Townley on "Cause and Coincidence"

A discussion of Paul Kammerer's "Seriality", which is similar to Jung's "Synchronicity" (meaningful 'coincidence'), except that Seriality is not acausal.

From the Wiki: He postulated that all events are connected by waves of Seriality. These forces would cause what we would perceive as just the peaks, or groupings and coincidences. Kammerer was known to, for example, make notes in public parks of what numbers of people were passing by, how many carried umbrellas, etc. In reviewing the book, Albert Einstein called the idea of Seriality "Interesting, and by no means absurd."

Utopia, Ecotopia

Ecotopia article by Forbes

"The two groups growing dramatically now in America are ecovillages, which are usually rural or semi-rural, and cohousing, which tends to be in or near cities," says Bill Metcalf, a sociologist at Griffith University in Australia who studies communalism and has lived in two intentional communities.

Most of these new groups are communal to varying degrees--some ecovillages pool everything they own and earn, while so-called "cohousing dwellers" typically have private homes and incomes while sharing some spaces, resources and domestic tasks. In addition to the desire to live green, community dwellers want more connection with the people around them--and not the digital kind.

Conspiracy talk at Secret Sun

Very interesting post at Secret Sun:
Terry Melanson of raised this very important issue in the comments to yesterday's posting.
"So what you seem to be saying, as far as I can tell, is that these "Followers of Horus," the secret priests of the secret society of Shemsu Hor which, according to Egyptian records, existed before time was recorded, are the real string-pullers even today. They have constructed all the competing hermetic and kabbalistic occult doctrines and have been the real "Unknown Superiors" alluded by the Elus Cohen, the Strict Observance, the Golden and Rosy Cross, and Theosophy. And further, that it is these Shemsu Hor who are behind the pervasiveness of sun symbolism?"
Here on the blog I feel free to speculate, but when I publish I feel obliged to stick to established fact. That being said, it's my opinion that the Freemasons were very, very busy in the 19th Century creating any number of movements for purposes I can only speculate on.

The Truth According To Wikipedia

The Truth According To Wikipedia

Here's Andrew Keen bitching on the Colbert Report

Andrew Keen says people steal on the internet all the time.
People are not stealing, copying = not stealing. They're spreading information.
The reason they are is because the Mainstream Media is doing a piss poor job of that, they actually do the opposite. The Mainstream Media doesn't spread information, the MM informs.

There's nothing wrong with amateurs to me:
"The word amateur comes from the Latin root meaning 'to love.' The conventional interpretation is that the amateur pursues his calling out of love, while the pro does it for money. Not the way I see it. In my view, the amateur DOES NOT LOVE THE GAME ENOUGH. If he did, he would not pursue it as a sideline, distinct from his 'real' vocation. The professional loves it so much he dedicates his life to it. He commits full-time." Andrew Keen

What about the Renaissance Man? Someone who is great in many fields, take Jacque Fresco for instance. I value those way over the narrow minded professional.

"An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field." Niels Bohr

One of his most ridiculous arguments is that we need professional objective journalists instead of bloggers. LOL, I think that the unprofessional agenda-propagating actors we have as journalists now needed the bloggers, many of them biased, to come to the rescue or the information vacuum would have sucked up our reality in a black hole.

I do agree with him that money is an issue in all this, I'd like to get paid for my many hours on the internet too servicing others, especially cause I loathe the system and am having trouble finding a job I can actually fathom doing and not just being a cog in some insignificant broken Machine.

Where do you draw the line?

Belgian Oil Prices
In the year 2000 1 US Dollar = 1,2 Euro
1 barrell crude oil costed 60 Dollar.
1 barrell crude oil costed 72 Euro.
at the pump we payed 0,82 Euro for 1 liter of Diesel.

In the year 2008 march, 1 US Dollar = 0,65 Euro
1 barrell crude oil costs 110 Dollar.
1 barrell crude oil costs 70,1 Euro (Oops ??!!...)
at the pump we pay 1,25 Euro for 1 liter of Diesel...

If 1 barrell of crude oil is cheaper now in Euro than it was in 2000,
Then why are we paying 50% more for a liter of Diesel!?

Daily Dedroidify: Ken Wilber's Integral Theory

Daily Dedroidify: Ken Wilber's Integral Theory

Integral theory refers to the systematic holistic philosophy developed originally by Ken Wilber, and more recently incorporated with the Spiral Dynamics theory of Don Beck. It is an all-encompassing evolutionary theory that addresses all aspects of consciousness studies (as well as such diverse fields as ecology and politics.)

Integral theory builds upon the ideas of previous integral thinkers like James Mark Baldwin, Jürgen Habermas and Jean Gebser, but also contains many new elements. Wilber intends to break away from metaphysics to develop a theory of spiritual evolution that is acceptable to the modern secular world.

What's posted here is only a small excerpt from the Ken Wilber page.

"There's more to evolution than a little DNA." Stuart Davis

"The mystics ask you to take nothing on mere belief. Rather, they give you a set of experiments to test in your own awareness and experience. The laboratory is your own mind, the experiment is meditation." Ken Wilber

Fulcrums (comparable to 8 Circuit model)
1 hatching of the physical self
2 birth of the emotional self
3 birth of the conceptual self
4 birth of the role self
5 the worldcentric or mature ego
6 Bodymind integration of the centaur - Realms of the superconscious
7 Psychic - Shamanistic - Animistic
8 Subtle - Saintly - Diety & Archetypes
9 Causal - Sagely - Non-Dual
10 Integrated Reality of all levels, states, conditions, transcends all, includes all (not really seperate of 9)

"The integral approach is committed to the full spectrum of consciousness as it manifests in all its extraordinary diversity. This allows the integral approach to recognize and honor the Great Holarchy of Being first elucidated by the perennial philosophy and the great wisdom traditions in general... The integral vision embodies an attempt to take the best of both worlds, ancient and modern. But that demands a critical stance willing to reject unflinchingly the worst of both as well." Ken Wilber

Spiral Dynamics is a theory of human development introduced in the 1996 book Spiral Dynamics by Don Beck and Chris Cowan. The book was based on the theory of psychology professor Clare W. Graves and Ken Wilber has popularized these ideas in a series of books. It will help you understand how and why the hell people are acting like they do.

  • "In other words, the real problem is not exterior. The real problem is interior. The real problem is how to get people to internally transform, from egocentric to sociocentric to worldcentric consciousness, which is the only stance that can grasp the global dimensions of the problem in the first place, and thus the only stance that can freely, even eagerly, embrace global solutions." Ken Wilber

    here's one overview, you need to read several links to do the theory justice though

    "Global consciousness is not an objective belief that can be taught to anybody and everybody, but a subjective transformation in the interior structures that can hold belief in the first place, which itself is the product of a long line of inner consciousness development." Ken Wilber

    "We move from part to whole and back again, and in that dance of comprehension, in that amazing circle of understanding, we come alive to meaning, to value, and to vision: the very circle of understanding guides our way, weaving together the pieces, healing the fractures, mending the torn and tortured fragments, lighting the way ahead - this extraordinary movement from part to whole and back again, with healing the hallmark of each and every step, and grace the tender reward." Ken Wilber

    Lines of Development
    Cognitive - Kinesthetic - Spiritual - Aesthetic - Musical - Karmic - Interpersonal - Moral - Worldview - Psychodynamics - Needs - Psychosexual - Values - Affective - Logical-Mathematical - Self-identity - ...

    The Lines of development are several areas of intelligence to increase so one evolves towards higher consciousness. Over two dozen have been observed. You don't have to excell in all of the lines, however research has shown some crosstraining accelerates development.
    So to say "I don't have time to develop several" isn't correct, actually you should say "I don't have time to NOT develop several." eg. people observed who just did vipassana meditation, did not accelerate as quickly as people who did vipassana combined with bodybuilding.

    One can be highly developed cognitively (cerebrally smart) without being highly morally developed (as in the case of Nazi doctors). However, Wilber acknowledges, you cannot be highly morally developed without the pre-requisite cognitive development. So not all of the developmental lines are ontologically equivalent.

    These lines are developped at levels pre-conventional (egocentric), conventional (ethnocentric), post-conventional (worldcentric), integrated (cosmocentric)

    Recommendations by Wilber
    Cognitive: Different points of view, philosophy, etc
    Spiritual: Meditation eg. Vipassana
    Psychodynamics: Unconscious shadow issues
    eg. Psychotherapy, Rebirthing technique, Sedona Method
    Kinesthetic: Body Training: eg. Yoga, Bodybuilding, Pilates, Tai Chi
    research has proven that a trained body sets back the Aging markers,
    not only that but too much running increases the Disease markers of the body
    so keep in shape but don't push it.

    Some clarification on some Lines
    Aestethic: self-expression, beauty, art, felt meaning
    Cognitive: awareness of what is
    Emotional/affective: full spectrum emotions
    Interpersonal: how i socially relate to others
    Moral: awareness of what should be
    Needs: Maslow's needs hierarchy
    Psychosexual: eros (gross to subtle to causal)
    Self-identity: who am i, loevinger's ego development
    Spiritual: spirit as unfolding, not just as ground or highest stage
    Values: what's most important, clare graves & spiral dynamics

    "The Realization of the Nondual traditions is uncompromising: There is only Spirit, there is only God, there is only Emptiness in all its radiant wonder. All the good and all the evil, the very best and the very worst, the upright and the degenerate— each and all are radically perfect manifestations of Spirit precisely as they are. There is nothing but God, nothing but the Goddess, nothing but Spirit in all directions, and not a grain of sand, not a speck of dust, is more or less Spirit than any other." Ken Wilber

    Death Philosophy

    When Death met the philosopher, the philosopher said, rather excitedly:
    “At this point, you realise, I’m both dead and not dead.”

    Natural Born Killers

    Mickey: Of course the only thing that kills the demon... is love.

    Fan: Now don't get me wrong, we don't like mass murder and shit, yeah we value human life, but hell if we were serial killers we'd so totally be Mickey and Mallory.

    Dwight McClusky: Mickey & Mallory Knox are without a doubt the most twisted depraved pair of shitfucks it has ever been my displeasure to lay my god damn eyes on. I tell you these two motherfuckers are a walking reminder of just how fucked up this system really is.

    Mickey: At birth, I was cast into a flaming pit of scum forgotten by God.

    Wayne: No one is born evil, Mickey. It's something you learn.

    Mickey: You'll never understand, Wayne. You and me, we're not even the same species. I used to be you, then I evolved. From where you're standing, you're a man. From where I'm standing, you're an ape. You're not even an ape. You're a media person. Media's like the weather, only it's man-made weather. Murder? It's pure. You're the one made it impure. You're buying and selling fear. You say "why?" I say "why bother?"

    Mickey: Mister rabbit says, "A moment of realization is worth a thousand prayers."

    Natural Born Killers trailer

    Wayne Gale: So tell me Mickey? Any regrets? I mean, three weeks, fifty people killed... not too cool Mickey.
    Mickey: Fifty-two, but I don't a lot of time with regret. That's a wasted emotion.
    Wayne Gale: Seriously you must have some regret. Rack your brain.
    Mickey: Well, I wish that Indian hadn't got killed.
    Mallory: [archive footage of the Indian's death] Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad!
    Wayne Gale: [looks at some files] One of your last victims.
    Mickey: Man had a rattlesnake in the corner...

    Mallory: You killed life!

    Mickey: The whole world's comin' to an end, Mal!
    Mallory: I see angels, Mickey. They're comin' down for us from heaven. And I see you ridin' a big red horse, and you're driving them horses, whippin' 'em, and the're spitting and frothing all 'long the mouth, and the're coming right at us. And I see the future, and there's no death, 'cause you and I, we're angels...
    Mickey: I love you, Mal.
    Mallory: I know you do baby, and I've loved you since the day we met.

    Wayne Gale: Repetition works, David. Repetition works, David.

    Old Indian: Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

    Mickey: It's just murder. All God's creatures do it. You look in the forests and you see species killing other species, our species killing all species including the forests, and we just call it industry, not murder.

    PKD: The Penultimate Truth excerpts

    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.

    Carol said, "I made an aud(io) tape of Yancy's (the supposed leader of the society) speech. The part I was there for, anyhow."
    "Those other spools of aud tape in that cabinet?"
    "All of Yancy. Former Speeches. Dating back over the past year."
    "Is that legal to do?"
    "As a matter of fact it is legal. I looked it up."
    Relieved, he said, "Sometimes I think you're nuts." Her mind was always off in some odd direction, flashing and echoing in its fullness and baffling him eternally; he could never keep up with her, and so his awe of her continually grew. "Explain," he said.
    "Have you noticed," Carol said, "that Yancy, in his speeches in late February, when he used the phrase coup de grâce, he pronounced it gras. And in March he pronounced it-" From the steel-doored cabinet she brought forth a chart with entries, which she now consulted. "March twelfth. Pronounced coo de grah. Then, in April, on the fifteenth, it was gras again." She glanced up alertly, eyed Nicholas.
    "Then," Carol said, inflexibly, "on May third in a speech, he once more used the term. That memorable speech in which he informed us that our destruct of Leningrad completely-" She glanced up from her chart. "It could well be the coo de grah. No s.
    Back to his earlier pronunciation." She restored the chart to the cabinet, then, and relocked the cabinet. He noted that it took not only a metal insert key but the pressure of her fingerprints; even with a duplicate key - or her key - the cabinet would remain closed. It would open only for her.
    Carol said, "I don't know. But it means something. Who fights the surface war?"
    "Leadies." (robots)
    "And where are the humans?"
    "What is this, Commissioner Nunes (Commissioners who control the ant tanks, the underground tanks) all over again, interrogating people at bedtime when they ought to be-"
    "They're in ant tanks (underground tanks)," Carol said. "Below surface. Like us. Now, when you apply for an artiforg (artificial organs) you are told they're available only to military hospitals, presumably on the surface."
    "I don't know," he said, "or care, where the military hospitals are. All I know is that they have the priority and we don't."
    Carol said, "If Leadies are fighting the war, what are in the military hospitals? Leadies? No. Because they send damaged leadies down to shops, our shop for instance. And a leady is a metal construct and it has no pancreas. There are a few humans on the surface, of course; the Estes Park Government. And in Pac-Peop, the Soviet. Are the pancreases for them?
    He was silent; she had him completely.
    "Something," she said, "is wrong. there can't be military hospitals because there aren't civilians or soldiers who've been maimed in the fighting and who need artiforgs. Yet - they won't release the artiforgs to us. To me, for instance, for Souza; even though they know we can't survive without Souza. Think about it, Nick."
    "Hmmm," he said.
    Carold said quietly. "You're going to have to come up with something better than 'Hmmm,' Nick. And soon."

    Ye shall know the truth, Adams thought, and by this thou shalt enslave. Or as Yancy would put it, "My fellow Americans. I have before me a document so sacred and momentous that I am going to ask you to-"

    Time, Nicholas thought, It's as if a force that grips us all in a one-way path of power, a total power on its part, none on ours, has for him divided; he is moved by it and yet simultaniously, or perhaps alternately, he seizes it and grips it and he then moves on to suit his own needs.

    "Gottlied Fischer," he said aloud. "The idea for Yancy originated with him; so the crisis is actually in the past." And he who possesses the ability to travel in time has accss to the past, he realized. There is a junction, a connection, Between David Lantano, who or whatever he is, and Gottlied Fischer, back in 1982 or '4 or right up to Fischer's death; but no later than his death... and probably slightly before Fischer began his work on the Yancy Prinzip, his variation on the Führer Prinzip: his new solution to the problem of who shall lead, since, if men are too blind to govern themselves, how can they be trusted to govern others? The answer is der Führer, as every German knows, and Gottlieb Fischer was a German. Brose then stole the idea from Fischer, as we all know, and turned that idea into an actuality, the dummy, one in Moscow and one in New York, bolted to the oak desk, programmed by the computer which in in turn is fed speeches by well trained elite idea men.

    Joan Minninger: Make your Mind work for You

    Interesting book so far focusing on the multi-mind approach, a model with five minds, to decrease inner conflicts and find out what you really want. The first one is The Executive one, the encouraging decision maker which is the boss over 4 others: WORK

    Wondering, curious, inventive, experimental, playful, possibilities, creative
    Organizing, rational, realistic, practical, clear, getting jobs done
    Reactive, emotions and feelings, intuitive, motivation
    Knowing, collects data from senses & processes it in information

    Sometimes the information from the minds can be really conflicting, so if you hold regular 'board meetings' where you evaluate each mind's advice you can make more informed decisions.

    Anything that helps!

    Daily Dedroidify: Alan Watts "I am"

    "It is obvious to any informed student of the history and psychology of religion that Jesus was one, of many, who had an intense experience of cosmic consciousness- of the vivid realization that oneself is a manifestation of the eternal energy of the universe, the basic "I am." But it is very hard to express this experience when the only religious imagery at your disposal conceives that "I am" as an all-knowing and all-powerful monarch, autocrat, and beneficent tyrant enthroned in a court of adoring subjects. In such a cultural context, you cannot say "I am God" without being accused of subversion, insubordination, megalomania, arrogance, and blasphemy. Yet that was why Jesus was crucified.

    In India people would have laughed and rejoiced with him, because Hindus know that we are all God in disguise-playing hide-and-seek with himself. Their model of the universe is not based on the political states of the Egyptians, Chaldeans, and Persians, whose awesome dictatorships still hold sway through the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic religions, even in the Republic of the United States. In Hinduism the whole universe is like the Holy Trinity - one as many, and many as one. (And, of course, the Hindus are the despised of the earth, having been reduced to utter poverty by Muslims and Christians.)

    But they must realize that Christianity would seem ever so much more valid if it would stop insisting on being an oddity. Christianity has universality, or catholicity, only in recognizing that Jesus is one particular instance and expression of a wisdom which was also, if differently, realized in the Buddha, in Lao-tzu, and in such modern avatars as Ramana Maharshi, Ramakrishna, and, perhaps, Aurobindo and Inayat Khan. (I could make a very long list.)
    This wisdom is that none of us are brief island existences, but forms and expressions of one and the same eternal "I am" waving in different ways, such that,
    whenever this is realized to be the case, we wave more harmoniously with other waves."

    "But at any rate, the point is that God is what nobody admits to being, and everybody really is."

    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.

    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.

    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!

    ...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 =)

    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."
