Rites of Saturn


Rites of Saturn

Amazing vid including the Kali Yuga or Iron age, Lord of the Rings symbology: the Ring destroyed is Saturn's ring (!), Illuminati victims, Pluto and more.

Was filmmaking genius Stanley Kubrick 'snuffed' in retribution for symbolic exposé of the Illuminati in "Eyes Wide Shut"?

Conspiracy talk at Secret Sun

Very interesting post at Secret Sun:
Terry Melanson of ConspiracyArchive.com 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.

Christopher goes on to talk about the (possible) Masonic roots of Mormonism, Christian Science, Rastafarianism and Transcendentalism. Ralph Waldo Emerson! Noooooo :p

Jesse Ventura Debates 9-11 Conspiracy on Opie & Anthony


Jesse Ventura Debates the 9-11 Conspiracy Theory

Former Minnesota Governor, professional wrestler, actor, and author Jesse Ventura visited the Opie and Anthony Show to promote his new book, and the conversation eventually turned to Ventura's thoughts on the September 11th tragedy.. His views don't sit well with the likes of Anthony, Jim Norton, and Bob Kelly, who is visiting... The conversation turns ugly fairly fast...

The vibe I'm getting from Opie & Anthony is: "I can't believe my government would do that." And thus defend that belief passionately.

The thing with people who can't believe the 9/11 conspiracy theory is always: "why would they do this, why would they do it like that?"
How would people, who just investigated the evidence and see through the deception, know those answers?
I also love how they keep asking Jesse why he's angry while one of them is fucking losing it continually.

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.
