Speed Reading

from the wiki: Speed reading is a collection of reading methods which attempt to increase rates of reading without greatly reducing comprehension or retention. Such methods include using various psychological techniques such as chunking and eliminating subvocalization. It is important to understand that no absolute distinct "normal" and "speed-reading" types of reading exist in practice, since all readers use some of the techniques used in speed reading (such as identifying words without focusing on each letter, not sounding out all words, not sub-vocalizing some phrases, or spending less time on some phrases than others, and skimming small sections). Speed reading is characterized by an analysis of trade-offs between measures of speed and comprehension, recognizing that different types of reading call for different speed and comprehension rates, and that those rates may be improved with practice. (Abela 2004)

I used a program called EyeQ, you can buy it, or trial download it from certain sites which contain a torrent of information ;p.

I highly recommend it, it only takes around ten minutes a session or something, do that daily for a month and practice while reading online or magazines, etc. I use a system where I group two halfs of a line pretty fast now and don't always verbalize internally and read down an article like that. It's not really necessarry to read letter per letter, you can go full words, groups of words and keep increasing with time.
Whatever techniques you learn, it will greatly reduce time spent reading articles, you can scan for information and you can boggle the minds of people who are reading along sometimes :p. I don't use it always as I like to immerse myself, but you can adjust speed and choose wether or not to verbalize internally obviously. I also don't use it a lot for the same reason when I'm reading books but it's very useful in boring or lesser parts ;). It's just a very useful technology in the information age, another option, an extra application of reading technique.

Jung's Understanding of the Meaning of the Shadow

Jung's Understanding of the Meaning of the Shadow by Laurens van der Post.

Not the least of Jung’s services to his time was his demonstration of how the dreaming process in man, far from being archaic and redundant, was more relevant than ever. Thissymbol moving between his dream and daylight self, however, was crucial at this moment.For years Jung had observed a sort of circular movement of awareness, dreams, visions, andnew inner material round an as yet unclefined centre like planets and moons around a sun. Itwas a strange rediscovery of what had once been called the "magic circle."

Brian Cox: What really goes on at the Large Hadron Collider


Ted Talks Brian Cox: What really goes on at the Large Hadron Collider

http://www.ted.com "Rock star physicist" Brian Cox talks about his work on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Discussing the biggest of big science in an engaging, accessible way, Cox brings us along on a tour of the massive complex and describes his part in it -- and the vital role it's going to play in understanding our universe.

Through the Stargate with Scrubs

The latest episode of Scrubs 'My Princess' (full episode here) was just wonderful synchromystic symbolism. A heroes journey, a lesson in synchronicity and 2012 stargate metaphor. The episode has a parallel story, one set in contemporary times in a hospital and one in medieval times. It was directed by Zach Braff who plays JD Dorian - the main character who's an immature doctor (I'm of the forever young class myself and love Zach Braff's character for it) and is an homage to the classic Princess Bride movie (trailer). See the wiki page of the episode here.
Braff describes the episode as both the most epic, and the most expensive episode so far, saying it includes "monsters, potions, evil wizards, giants, hunchbacks, gnomes – like "World of Warcraft", but Scrubs." (speaking of online games, I recently saw the Final Fantasy MMORPG and that was stockfull of stargate symbolism.)



The show begins with a stopping of time (the end of time and the beginning of something else) when a room of doctors and nurses don't react to the Todd's antics and freeze to make him go away - obviously you can't see that very well in a picture but hey ;p there it is. This happens in Sacred Heart hospital, the Sacred Heart is a religious devotion to Jesus' physical heart as the representation of the divine love for humanity.



The 'evil' bureaucratic Dark Lord Oslek(Oz)/Dr. Kelso with the hospital lawyer next to him warns the staff that doctors have to leave after their shift as tired doctors. "Go home to your sad, empty lives." Kelso

Then the main story begins with Princess/Dr. Elliot who can't find the diagnosis of a patient. Fool/Dr JD Dorian runs into her and asks her about when they were trying to kiss each other before (earlier episodes). She just says that he was trying to kiss her.



JD runs off in his 'what the hell' pose to mope to Dr/Knight Cox who doesn't care. In the background two young doctors are playing diagnosis jeopardy and the girl gets it right (Wilson's Disease) and gloats. [Wilson's disease or hepatolenticular degeneration is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder in which copper accumulates in tissues; this manifests itself with neurological symptoms and liver disease.]

Dr/Knight Cox goes home to his son and starts telling him the medieval metaphorical story. (Just as the kid from the Wonder Years gets a story told by his grandfather in the Princess Bride)



The Princess (dr Elliot) and the village idiot or archetypal fool ("does this hat make me look flyeth?") in a masonic jacket, and featuring a two-headed witch (hilarious symbol for a married couple, the nurse and surgeon), begin the adventure.



Princess Elliot throws out a dove for help (cellphone). The fool answers her call. "He was a collossal idiot." The narrator makes clear. The fool also recalls the kiss and asks her what's up, but Elliot turns the conversation to her maiden trapped by a monster (a patient whose diagnosis she can't find, the monster is the unknown). The Fool is the archetypal spirit in search of experience. He represents the mystical cleverness bereft of reason within us, the childlike ability to tune into the inner workings of the world.
I also like to see the fool as the one who realizes his ignorance, the one who sees the illusion of his belief system, his reality tunnel and starts out on a journey of truth and experience. These quotes illustrate how wise men realize their ignorance:
"I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance."
Socrates

"True knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance."
Confucius



Elliot asks the two-headed witch "How can we defeat the monster?" and they/it/whatever send her to the potion shop (lab results). JD and Elliot set out on Sasha, a donkey, which represents JD's silly moped in contemporary time. Both are sweet rides to JD. But they run into the 'evil' Dark Lord Oslek(Oz)/Dr. Kelso. This symbolizes they are playing on the 'floor of the king', represented by the checkered masonic jacket JD is wearing.
Kelso can't stand them being in their forbidden forest (space), yet in the hospital, it's a metaphor for another doctor who was working past his shift (time). The lab results aren't back yet, as they're backed up there and their shift is almost over, so these are their first obstacles. But as in any heroes journey, obstacles are meant to be overcome. Obstacles are merely challenges that make the (and everybody's) story interesting and build character, literally and storywise.



Elliot sends out a dove (cellphone call) to Dr/Knight Cox. Who calls both Elliot and JD, 'Princess' :p. The Knight faces the monster, but this heroes journey is their own and the Knight - someone else - cannot solve their problem, it is theirs. "That monster cannot by slayn by sword alone." The sword here, is a symbol for reason. Some problems cannot be solved by reason alone. Dr. Cox tells them to find the Golden Ring, the diagnosis. He adds: "Remember what you heard, when you weren't really listening."

They go further on their journey, the janitor/giant temporarily saves them as a returned favor (which the hero can always collect on his journey) but are still busted (remain aware also when things are going well).

"Remember that there is nothing stable in human affairs; therefore avoid undue elation in prosperity, or undue depression in adversity."
Socrates

The hunchback/lawyer associate of evil Kelso makes clear along the way that while he's a good guy, his allegiance to evil is really "a self-confidence thing."
While captured, Elliot and JD in hard times come together and declare their love.
Kelso tries to suspend them both, but through the magic of language JD and Elliot make clear that they can't make the hospital liable for anything and thus escape by not giving up and knowing how to 'play the game.'

"I have been a believer in the magic of language since, at a very early age, I discovered that some words got me into trouble and others got me out."
Katherine Dunn



After escaping, JD tries to rekindle the earlier rediscovered love, but Elliot wants him to "FOCUS, we have to find the golden ring!" Aha! the power of suggestion. JD recalls dr Cox's words "Remember what you heard, when you weren't really listening." Out of nowhere in the forest come two fairies, which represent his intuition, "I just remembered something, I was barely listening." And he remembers Wilson's Disease from the young doctors. The fairies say "this is for you." The golden ring! Intuition and Synchronicity save the day once again!



The Golden Ring defeats the monster. The truth, the stargate, the solution, synchronicity, being aware within & without - defeats ignorance & obstacles. How can they be sure it's Wilson's Disease, JD knows she'll have copper deposits around her iris. "What does that look like?"



Radiant rings. Another wonderful stargate, through the Looking Glass Eye.
The maiden lived happily ever after. "Is that how it really ended?" Let's just say "that's how I'm telling it." Creating your own reality, making the 2012 stargate real.

Daily Dedroidify: Culture

Daily Dedroidify: Culture (Terence McKenna)

Culture is not your friend, it's an impediment to understanding what's going on. That's why to my mind the word cult and the word culture have a direct relationship to each other. Culture is a cult and if you feel revulsion at the thought of somebody offering to the great carrot, just notice that your own culture is an extremely repressive cult that leads to all kinds of humiliation and degradation, and automatic and unquestioned and unthinking behaviour.

I mean the American family is what keeps American psychotherapy alive and well. This is a cauldron for the production of neurosis.

Part of what psychedelics do, is they decondition you from cultural values. This is what makes it such a political hot potato, since all culture is a kind of congame, the most dangerous candy you can hand out is candy that makes people start questioning the rules of the game.

The 'Alien' Self

Here's a great post on crop circles by HPANWO.

Crop Circles to me don't seem to be a part of this reality to convince people of alien life, it seems they are here to make (some) people doubt current beliefs about reality. If this phenomenon were meant to convince people, the symbols would be burned into mountains and market places. Which would probably cause mass hysteria.

It's likely that some readers will feel aversion to crop circle material, because you've probably heard about folks making them themselves (the Plankers), well breathe and check out this excerpt:
"Even the Plankers themselves don't claim that they've made all of them, although they water it down a bit; words to the effect of: "Well, no we don't know who made that one, so there must be circle-making gangs that we're not in touch with." (Matthew Williams- CFZ Weird Weekend 2006) The Plankers are actually every bit as much “New Age” and "freaky" as most of the “croppies”, people like me who study crop circles as a paranormal phenomenon! They regularly report paranormal activity while they're making the circles. They carry out pagan ceremonies at their circlemaking sites too."

Some more alien self brainfood:
* Terence McKenna Live at St. John the Divine's Cathedral, Synod Hall April 25, 1996
Not from the page but my memory:
"People are so alienated from their own soul that when they meet their soul they think it comes from another star system."
Terence McKenna

"I once discussed this with the Mushroom who said, we are disguising this as an alien invasion as to not alarm you to what's really going on." Terence McKenna (paraphrased)

* Guerilla Ontology
"My observation of the Universe convinces me that there are beings of intelligence and power of a far higher quality than anything we can conceive of as human; that they are not necessarily based on the cerebral and nervous structures that we know, and that the one and only chance for mankind to advance as a whole is for individuals to make contact with such beings."
Crowley (1944) Plan 93 from Outer Space by P.R. Koenig

"Fiction, as a vehicle, has often been used by occultists ... Ideas not acceptable to the everyday mind, limited by prejudice and spoiled by a 'bread-winning' education, can be made to slip past the censor, and by means of the novel, the poem, the short story be effectually planted in soil which would otherwise reject or destroy them."
The Magical Revival by Kenneth Grant

* Here are some great UFO quotes that shed light on the deceptive nature
of the "alien" presence:
"But the UFO phenomenon simply does not behave like extraterrestrial visitors. It actually molds itself in order to fit a given culture."

Indiana Jones better get his alibi ready. A large crystal skull similar to those at the center of the upcoming Harrison Ford movie was recently stolen from a New Age store, puzzling employees in part because of the laid-back nature of shop regulars.

BBC Tribes with Bruce Parry

Tribes is a great series where Bruce Parry, former marine commando, explores but also integrates into different tribes all across the world. My favorite parts, are the entheogens he tries along with the tribe. Bruce has an openminded exploring spirit and I really love watching these documentaries and the sustainable ecology type of living.

Unfortunately, almost nothing can be found on video google anymore, though I think British folks can see some video on the BBC website, Americans can try Discovery Channel (going tribal)

The subtext in white which is barely readable in the pic says:
"A one man task-force for popularizing anthropology."

Philosophers

"Man may live two lives. One is a struggle from the womb to the tomb. Its span is measured by man's own creation-time. Well may it be called the unheeding life. The other life is from realization to infinity. It begins with understanding, its duration is forever, and upon the plane of eternity it is consummated. This is called the philosophic life. Philosophers are not born nor do they die; for once having achieved the realization of immortality, they are immortal. Having once communed with Self, they realize that within there is an immortal foundation that will not pass away. Upon this living, vibrant base-Self-they erect a civilization which will endure after the sun, the moon, and the stars have ceased to be. The fool lives but for today; the philosopher lives forever."
Manly P. Hall

100 Simple Ways to Change Your Life for the Better

By Jessica Hupp
No matter how perfect you may think you are (lol! Any out there? :p), the fact this there’s always some small way you can improve upon yourself. Whether it’s broadening your knowledge or reducing your impact on the earth, there are seemingly endless little things you can do to make a change for the better. Here, we’ll discuss 100 of these steps, and how you can go about doing them.

This I Believe

http://www.thisibelieve.org

This I Believe is a national media project engaging people in writing, sharing, and discussing the core values and beliefs that guide their daily lives.

I think this site might give me a few laughs, maybe some insights and possibly a heart attack, haha.

Playing with Symbols

Hidden Agendas has a great Simpsons/Futurama synch post up, check it out!

Flow my tears, the police man said. (final post)

THE THEORY CHANGES THE REALITY IT DESCRIBES.

He turned, then, to face Jason. "I see something about you that didn't show up in your 4-D photo. It never does, It's always a complete surprise, at least to me. You're a six, aren't you?"
Waking to full alertness, Jason half rose, said, "You're also a six, General?"
Smiling, showing his gold-capped teeth - an expensive anachronism - Felix Buckman held up seven fingers.

In his career as a police official, Felix Buckman had used this shuck each time he had come up against a six. He rlied on it especially when, as with this, the encounter was sudden. There had been four of them. All, eventually, had believed him. This he found amusing. The sixes, eugenic experiments themselves, and secret ones, seemed unusually gullible when confronted with the assertion that there existed an additional project as classified as their own.
Without this shuck he would be, to a six, merely an 'ordinary.' He could not properly handle a six under such a disadvantage. Hence the ploy. Through it his relationship to a six inverted itself. And, under such recreated conditions, he could deal successfully with an otherwise unmanageable human being.
The actual psychological superiority over him which a six possessed was abolished by an unreal fact. He liked this very much.
...
"Why a 'Seven?' Alys had said. "As long as you're shucking them why not say eight or thirty-eight?"
The sin of vainglory. Reaching too far." He had not wanted to make that legendary mistake. "I will tell them, " he had told her grimly, "what I think they'll believe."

Reality denied comes back to haunt.

"There's a cafetaria in the (police) building," (police chief) Buckman said at last, as he drank down a glass of imitation Tang. "But the food there is poisoned. All the help must have relatives in forced-labor camps. They're getting back at us." He laughed. Jason Taverner did not.

I wanna post so much more but I'd spoil the entire thing lol. Check out the earlier posts.

Daily Dedrodify: Psychonaut

A Psychonaut (Check the link for much more) is a person who uses psychoactive entheogens as guides, or means, to achieve inward spiritual experiences, and who reflects upon these experiences and applies them to their own life in a positive way, with the intent of bettering themselves.

The word entheogen is a modern term derived from two Ancient Greek words entheos and genesthai. Entheos means literally 'in God', more freely translated 'inspired'. The Greeks used it as a term of praise for poets and other artists. Genesthai means 'to cause to be'. So an entheogen is 'that which causes (a person) to be in God'.

Two Commandments for the Molecular Age:
Thou shalt not alter the consciousness of thy fellow men.
Thou shalt not prevent thy fellow man from altering his or her own consciousness.

Quotes
"At one point consciousness-altering devices like the microscope and telescope were criminalized for exactly the same reasons that psychedelic plants were banned in later years. They allow us to peer into bits and zones of Chaos."
Timothy Leary

"Psychedelic experience is only a glimpse of genuine mystical insight, but a glimpse which can be matured and deepened by the various ways of meditation in which drugs are no longer necessary or useful. If you get the message, hang up the phone. For psychedelic drugs are simply instruments, like microscopes, telescopes, and telephones. The biologist does not sit with eye permanently glued to the microscope, he goes away and works on what he has seen..."
Alan Watts

"People use the word 'natural'... what is natural to me are these botanical species which interact directly with the nervous system. What I consider artificial is 4 years at Harvard, and the Bible, and Saint Patrick's cathedral, and the sunday school teachings."
Timothy Leary

"Let us declare nature to be legitimate. All plants should be declared legal, and all animals for that matter. The notion of illegal plants and animals is obnoxious and ridiculous."
Terence McKenna

"Don't just eat a mushroom stem and see colors, eat the whole bag and see God one time in your life! A real God! Not some storybook bullshit God that's been fucking kicked in your head for the last 2000 years that you just accept with no logic what so ever, a real God that works for you. Everytime you deny your own logic, deny your own instincts, you deny your own God you fucking moron."
Doug Stanhope

"The White Man goes into his church and talks about Jesus. The Indian goes into his Tipi and talks with Jesus."
Comanche Quanah Parker

"The fungi were placed on a table by the pool, I picked on up, it tasted even worse than it looked bitter, stringy. I began to feel strange, mildly nausious, detached. Everything was quivering with life, even inanimate objects. I gave way to the light and discovered a sea of possibilities, other realities. By that swimming pool I learned more about the mind than I had in 15 years as a diligent psychologist."
Timothy Leary

"I think any reasonable person can conclude that the redemption of the world, if it's to be achieved, can only be achieved through magic. It's too late for science. It's too late for hortatory politics."
Terence McKenna

Muse: Free Your Mind - (Exo-Politics)


Muse: Exo-Politics

Open skies over me
I am waiting patiently
I'll wait for a sign

As conspiracies unwind
Will you slam shut
Or free your mind
Or stay hypnotised

When the Zetas fill the skies
Will our leaders tell us why
Fully loaded satellites
Will conquer nothing but our minds

And I've waited patiently
And I'll wait for the sign

Carried through the centuries
Secrets locked up
And loaded on my back
Well it weights me down

When the Zetas fill the skies
It's just our leaders in disguise
Fully loaded satellites
Will conquer nothing but our minds

I'm waiting patiently
And I'll wait for the sign, yeah
And I'm waiting patiently
And I'll wait for the sign

Thanks to Malcolm in the Secret Sun comments ;p

Stuart Swerdlow: 'Illuminati' as Teachers






They (lol, I don't even know what that means) also haven't been conditioned as much as the 'ordinaries' to accept all that bullshit negative programming. I really wanna raise this though:
"If everyone and everything is a reflection of your mind pattern". If. Are there any people who visit this blog that are convinced this is the case? (Please mind, that I'm not asking who believes this, I'm asking more than that.) My current catma is 'mind patterns' influence reality, that awareness is like a search light somehow. But to say that all is a reflection is way stretching it for me (at this time), but I'm very interested in hearing other views. [The "why do you choose to co-exist with them at this time" really makes me cringe btw]

Jason Beghe Scientology Interview

From the vid info: Jason Beghe is the first celebrity to leave Scientology and publicly discuss his involvement and then disillusionment with the group. He made it to OT V on Scientology’s “Bridge to Total Freedom” and discovered the best way to get free was to get up and walk out the door.

This is way better than I expected. I notice a lot of reshaping models, your 'thetan' (theta consciousness) is your 'soul/spirit', 'clear' is 'enlightenment', etc. Holy crap there are loads of parallels to the New Age and also Spirituality in general. Time to re-evaluate some of your own views perhaps? The sikes (however they write it) parts are hilarious.

Colbert on Fulford & Illuminati

Ewige Blumenkraft!
You think Colbert read RAW & Robert Shea's Illuminatus or his writers did? :p

Colbert's show is weird, the humor doesn't always work (I can only watch Stewart's Daily Show and the Report every few months when really bored) and need I say again, a lot of republicans thought he was one of them when the show started, I mean ouch! How do you not get that?

The horns would mean I'm illuminati too haha. Though it's possible, Stewart & Colbert mostly stick to the mainstream stories & talk to politicians a lot on their shows (eww :p). I often see them as gatekeepers like Chomsky (9/11) possibly may be too - though never underestimate ignorance and Belief Systems, there doesn't always need to be a conspiracy ;p. Colbert was really freaking nervous at the president roast though ;). Then again the "see patterns where non exist" line tips it over the other end once more, mainstream media folk love ridiculing conspiracy and it's a great tactic to avoid the average joe from looking into such matters.
Colbert has a point here too though - confirmation bias plays a huge role in conspiracy research (& obviously synchromysticism too, though on a whole other level) which is one of the main themes of this blog, avoiding that! I think in finding patterns the only thing to keep sane and not make a mess of one's belief system is not taking it too seriously.

The Illuminati Formula Used to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave

by Cisco Wheeler and Fritz Springmeier

from the introduction:
There are many dangers to the human race, some real and some imagined. I believe that the trauma-based mind control which this book exposes is the greatest danger to the human race. It gives evil men the power to carry out any evil deed totally undetected. By the time the astute reader finishes this book, they will be as familiar with how to carry out trauma-based mind-control as some of the programmers. Ancient and more recent secrets will no longer be secrets.

Over the years, I have spent thousands of hours studying the Illuminati, the Intelligence agencies of the world, and the occult world in general. The centerpiece of these organizations is the trauma-based mind control that they carry out. Without the ability to carry out this sophisticated type of mind-control using Multiple Personality Disorder, drugs, hypnosis and electronics and other control methodologies, these organizations would fail to keep their dark evil deeds secret.

When one of the mind-control programmers of the Church of Scientology, who has left Scientology, was asked about MPD, he said, "It’s the name of the game of mind control." Research into this subject will never be complete. This book has tried to give a comprehensive view of how the programming is done.

His child! Partisan brother of war.
Of war, we don't speak anymore of war...

Cameo by Richard Dawkins at the end.

This live vid begins pretty awesome too with
FREEDOM WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE THROUGH DEATH!
God wants you to go to war! etc :p

There are people out there who actually take the lyrics literally instead of sarcastically... Ouch. It's like in "I'm not there", create nothing or it will be misinterpreted, I say create anyway.

Is egotism inherent in Mysticism?

Another attribute of the mystical experience that lends itself to egotism is the overwhelming sense, feeling, or perception that one is experiencing things in a way that is primal — e.g. more real or truer than how one normally experiences things. The notion one has “seen the truth” is, once again, fertile grounds for egotism.

So the mystical experience — or at least it’s aftertaste — does not come without challenges. It is of course up to the individual how they deal with those challenges.

I liked this comment too.

Truth: Can You Handle It?

Better Yet: Do You Know It When You See It?
By Monica Hesse


"How many legs does a dog have, if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg." Abraham Lincoln

[*Note: Lincoln never said this. He liked a similar, more long-winded anecdote about a cow, but the dog version? Nope. Still, the quote is credited to Abe on some 11,000 different Web pages, including quote resources Brainy Quote and World of Quotes.

Though not technically "true," the quote makes a nice start to this article about truth, being topical and brief, so if we want to go with truth-by-consensus (very popular now), we can go ahead and just say that he said it.

Besides, by the time you finish this article, your brain might have tricked you into thinking that he did say it (more on that later), so let's just go ahead and leave it in. Okay?]

Read on, if you can handle it.

Albert Einstein Quotes

“I am a deeply religious non-believer - This is a somewhat new kind of religion.”

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”

“We can't solve problems by using the same level of thinking we used when we created them.”

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

“Only a life lived for others is a life worth while.”

“The only real valuable thing is intuition.”

“There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there.”

“Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.”

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.”

“If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”

“Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.”

“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.”

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

“The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”

“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.”

IlluminatiMATRIX - What In The World's Going On?


IlluminatiMATRIX - What In The World's Going On?

Maybe first check out this extensive post about Bryan Kemila and IlluminatiMatrix and of course http://illuminatimatrix.wordpress.com itself.

Prepare for strange but fascinating theories on reality, conspiracy, language and symbols. Wether it's truth, confirmation bias or a combination of it, or just wrong, or just another view of reality that we can make possible, or the many other possibilities I still haven't figured out yet. Informed comments are hoped for (after checking out the vid, post & site :p). I e-mailed Bryan Kemila a few times but it didn't make me much wiser about my remaining questions, to be continued!

Dedroidify Vids updated

To give new people the heads up, here is the dedroidify.com/vids page, recently updated it with some new consciousness & conspiracy streaming videos and fixed a lot (150+) of broken links. If you still find broken links (which is certain at the rate youtube & google video remove them...) you can always try a google video search on the title. Reporting broken links is very much appreciated, you can do it here in the comments or in the guestbook. Suggestions are welcome too.

Here is my recommended vids post which can also be found in the sidebar link section.

Little Brother

"No, no, Marcus is more aspirational than autobiographical," laughs Cory Doctorow about the 17-year-old hero of his newest science fiction novel, Little Brother (Fenn). Principled, literate, brave and, above all, technologically savvy, Marcus puts pebbles in his shoes to fool his school's "gait recognition" software, chats with friends on an IMParanoid messaging program, and takes on the Department of Homeland Security's Orwellian surveillance system in the name of liberty. "He's the teen we all would have liked to have been," says Doctorow, 36, who nevertheless bristles at the thought that Marcus is too unrealistic: "People have said, 'C'mon, no teenager reads Jane Jacobs'; I read Jane Jacobs when I was a teenager!"

And this page about the book

Love, Grief & a Rabbit. Flow my tears, the policeman said. (3/4)

Jason said, "There are different kinds of love."
"Like Emily fusselman's rabbit." She glanced up at him. "A woman I knew, married, with three kids; she had two kittens and then she got one of those big gray Belgian rabbits that go lipperty lipperty lipperty on those huge hind legs. For the first month the rabbit was afraid to come out of his cage. It was a he, we think, as best we could tell. Then after a month he would come out of his cage and hop around the living room. After two months he learned to climb the stairs and scratch on Emily's bedroom door to wake her up in the morning. He started playing with the cats, and there the trouble began because he wasn't as smart as a cat."

"Rabbits have smaller brains," Jason said.
Ruth Rae said, "Hard by. Anyhow, he adored the cats and tried to do everything they did. He even learned to use the catbox most of the time. Using tufts of hair he pulled from his chest, he made a nest behind the couch and wanted the kittens to get into it. But they never would. The end of it all - nearly - came when he tried to play Gotcha with a German shepherd that some lady brought over. You see, the rabbit learned to play this game with the cats and with Emily Fusselman and the children where he'd hide behind the couch and then come running out, running very fast in circles, and everyone tried to catch him, but they usually couldn't and then he'd run back to safety behind the couch, where no one was supposed to follow. But the dog didn't know the rules of the game and when the rabbit ran back behind the couch the dog went after him and snapped its jaws around the rabbit's rear end. Emily managed to pry the dog's jaws open and she got the dog outside, but the rabbit was badly hurt. He recovered, but after that he was terrified of dogs and ran away if he saw one even through the window. And the part of him the dog bit, he kept that part hidden behind the draps because he had no hair there and was ashamed. But what was so touching about him was his pushing against the limits of his - what would you say? - physiology? His limitations as a rabbit, trying to become a more evolved life form, like the cats. Wanting all the time to be with them and play with them as an equal. That's all there is to it, really. The kittens wouldn't stay in the nest he built for them, and the dog didn't know the rules and got him. He lived several years. But who would have thought that a rabbit coul ddevelop such a complex personality? And when you were sitting on the couch and he wanted you to get off, so he could lie down, he'd nudge you and then if you didn't move he'd bite you. But look at the aspirations of that rabbit and look at his failing. A little life trying. And all the time it was hopeless. But the rabbit didn't know that. Or maybe he did know and kept trying anyhow. But I thihk he didn't understand. He just wanted to do it so badly. It was his whole life, because he loved the cats."

"I thought you didn't like animals," Jason said.
"Not any more. Not after so many defeats and wipe-outs. Like the rabbit; he eventually, of course, died. Emily Fusselman cried for days. A week. I could see what it had done to her and I didn't want to get involved."
"But stopping loving animals entirely so that you -"
"Their lives are so short. Just so fucking goddamn short. Okay some people lose a creature they love and then go on and transfer that love to another one. But it hurts; it hurts."
"Then why is love so good?" He had brooded about that, in and out of his own relationships, all his long adult life. He broooded about it acutely now. Through what had recently happened to him, up to Emily Fusselman's rabbit. This moment of painfulness. "You love someone and they leave. They come home one day and start packing their things and you say, "What's happening?" and they say, "I got a better offer someplace else," and there they go, out of your life forever, and after that until you're dead you're carrying around this huge hunk of love with no one to give it to. And if you do find someone to give it to, the same thing happens all over. Or you call them up on the phone one day and say, "This is Jason," and they say, "Who?" and then you know you've had it. They don't know who the hell you are. So I guess they never did know; you never had them in the first place."
Ruth said, "Love isn't just wanting another person the way you want to own an object you see in a store. That's just desire. You want to have it around, take it home and set it up somewhere in the apartment like a lamp. Love is" - she paused, reflecting - "like a father saving his children from a burning house, getting them out and dying himself. When you love you cease to live for yourself; you live for another person."
"And that's good?" It did not sound so good to him.
"It overcomes instinct. Instincts push us into fighting for survival. Like the pols ringing all the campuses. Survival of ourselves at the expense of others; each of us claws his way up. I cazn give you a good example. My twenty-first husband, Frank. We were married six months. During that time he stopped loving me and became horribly unhappy. I still loved him; I wanted to remain with him, but it was hurting him. So I let him go. You see? It was better for him, and because I loved him that's what counted. See?"
Jason said, "But why is it good to go against the instinct for self-survival?"
"You don't think I can say."
"No," he said.
"Because the instinct for survival loses in the end. With every living creature, mole, bat, human, frog. Even frogs who play cigars and play chess. You can never accomplish what your survival instinct sets out to do, so ultimately your striving endsin failure and you succumb to death, and that ends it. But if you can love you can fade out and watch -"
"I'm not ready to fade out," Jason said.
"- you can fade out and watch with happiness, and with cool, mellow, alpha, contentment, the highest form of contentment, the living on of one of those you love."

"But they die, too."
"True." Ruth Rae chewed on her lip.
"It's better not to love so that never happens to you. Even a pet, a dog or a cat. As you pointed out - love them and they perish. If the death of a rabbit is bad -" He had, then, a glimpse of horror: the crushed bones and hair of a girl, held and leaking blood, in the jaws of a dimly-seen enemy outlooming any dog.
"But you can grieve," Rush said, anxiously studying his face. "Jason! Grief is the most powerful emotion a man or child or animal can feel. It's a good feeling."
"In what fucking way?" He said harshly.
"Grief causes you to leave yourself. You step outside your narrow little pelt. And you can't feel grief unless you've had love before it - grief is the final outcome of love, because it's love lost. You do understand; I know you do. But you just don't want to think about it. It's the cycle of love completed: to love, to lose, to feel grief, to leave, and then to love again. Jason, grief is awareness that you will have to be alone, and there is nothing beyond that because being alone is the ultimate final destiny of each individual living creature. That's what death is, the great loneliness...

Grief reunites you with what you've lost. Its a merging; you go with the loved thing or person that's going away. In some fashion you split with yourself and accompany it, to go part of the way with it on its journey. You follow it as far as you can go..."


How good really are the police? he asked himself. They managed to get my name wrong; they pulled the wrong file on me. Isn't it possible they'll fuck up all down the line? Maybe. But maybe not.
He had mutually opposing conceptions of the police, too. And could not resolve those either. And so, like a rabbit, like Emily fusselman's rabbit, froze where he was. Hoping as he did so that everyone understood the rules: you do not destroy a creature that does not know what to do.

Timothy Leary Quotes

"People use the word "natural" ... What is natural to me is these botanical species which interact directly with the nervous system. What I consider artificial is 4 years at Harvard, and the Bible, and Saint Patrick's cathedral, and the sunday school teachings."

"I declare that The Beatles are mutants. Prototypes of evolutionary agents sent by God, endowed with a mysterious power to create a new human species, a young race of laughing freemen."

"If you want to change the way people respond to you, change the way you respond to people."

"Turn on" meant go within to activate your neural and genetic equipment. Become sensitive to the many and various levels of consciousness and the specific triggers that engage them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. "Tune in" meant interact harmoniously with the world around you — externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives. Drop out suggested an elective, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments. "Drop Out" meant self-reliance, a discovery of one's singularity, a commitment to mobility, choice, and change. Unhappily my explanations of this sequence of personal development were often misinterpreted to mean "Get stoned and abandon all constructive activity."

"We are dealing with the best-educated generation in history. They are a hundred times better educated than their grandparents, and ten times more sophisticated. There has never been such an open-minded group. The problem is that no one is giving them anything fresh. They've got a brain dressed up with nowhere to go."

"That’s the left wing of the CIA debating the right wing of the CIA."
Discussing CNN’s Crossfire as quoted in Rolling Stone

"The universe is an intelligence test."

"I am 100 percent in favor of the intelligent use of drugs, and 1,000 percent against the thoughtless use of them, whether caffeine or LSD. And drugs are not central to my life."

"A psychedelic experience is a journey to new realms of consciousness. The scope and content of the experience is limitless, but its characteristic features are the transcendence of verbal concepts, of space-time dimensions, and of the ego or identity. Such experiences of enlarged consciousness can occur in a variety of ways: sensory deprivation, yoga exercises, disciplined meditation, religious or aesthetic ecstasies, or spontaneously. Most recently they have become available to anyone through the ingestion of psychedelic drugs such as LSD, psilocybin, mescaline, DMT, etc. Of course, the drug does not produce the transcendent experience. It merely acts as a chemical key — it opens the mind, frees the nervous system of its ordinary patterns and structures."

"Monotheism is the primitive religion which centers human consciousness on Hive Authority. There is One God and His Name is _______ (substitute Hive-Label). If there is only One God then there is no choice, no option, no selection of reality. There is only Submission or Heresy. The word Islam means "submission". The basic posture of Christianity is kneeling. Thy will be done."

"We saw ourselves as anthropologists from the twenty-first century inhabiting a time module set somewhere in the dark ages of the 1960s. On this space colony we were attempting to create a new paganism and a new dedication to life as art."

"In the information age, you don't teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he'd have a talk show."

"Civilization is unbearable, but it is less unbearable at the top."

"What I feel or believe or experience is my business, and what I do is all our businesses; and reward or punish me according to whether I play the game well — ethically and rightly — or unethically."

"Individual societies begin in harmonious adaptation to the environment and, like individuals, quickly get trapped into nonadaptive, artificial, repetitive sequences."

"When the individual's behavior and consciousness get hooked to a routine sequence of external actions, he is a dead robot, and it is time for him to die and be reborn. Time to "drop out," "turn on," and "tune in." This period of robotization is called the Kali Yuga, the Age of Strife and Empire..."

"If you are serious about your religion, if you really wist to commit yourself to the spiritual quest, you must learn how to use psychochemicals. Drugs are the religion of the twenty-first century. Pursuing the religious life today without using psychedelic drugs is like studying astronomy with the naked eye because that's how they did it in the first century A.D., and besides telescopes are unnatural."

"My advice to myself and to everyone else, particularly young people, is to turn on, tune in and drop out. By drop out, I mean to detach yourself from involvement in secular, external social games. But the dropping out has to occur internally before it can occur externally. I'm not telling kids just to quit school; I'm not telling people to quit their jobs. That is an inevitable development of the process of turning on and tuning in."

"I've left specific instructions that I do not want to be brought back during a Republican administration."

"Science is all a metaphor."

"The mark of a basic shit is that he can’t mind his own business."
(also attributed to William S. Burroughs)

"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."

"At one point consciousness-altering devices like the microscope and telescope were criminalized for exactly the same reasons that psychedelic plants were banned in later years. They allow us to peer into bits and zones of Chaos."

Thanks to Dan for the heads up.

Daily Dedroidify: The wolves inside you

Daily Dedroidify: The wolves inside you

An elder Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me... it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith."

"This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too", he added.

The Grandchildren thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied... "The one you feed."

Refused - New Noise

CAN I SCREAM?!
YEAH!
We lack the motion to move to the new beat! WHOO!
We lack the motion to move to the new beat!

It's here for us to admire if we can afford the beauty of it
If we can afford the luxury of turning our heads
If we can if we can if we can
Adjust the thousand dollar smile and behold the creation of man
Great words won't cover ugly actions
Good frames won't save bad paintings!

WHOOO!

We lack the motion to move to the new beat! YEAH!
We lack motion!

When the day is over Hey
the doors are locked on us
'Cause money buys the access
And we can't pay the cost
How can we expect anyone to listen
If we're using the same old voice?
We need new noise
New art for the real people!

We dance to all the wrong songs
We enjoy all the wrong moves
We dance to all the wrong songs
We're not leading!

Here we go! Yeah!

The new beat!!! (16x)

Thank you.

Massive investment in CCTV cameras to prevent crime in the UK has failed to have a significant impact, despite billions of pounds spent on the new technology, a senior police officer piloting a new database has warned. Only 3% of street robberies in London were solved using CCTV images, despite the fact that Britain has more security cameras than any other country in Europe.
