The Missing Secrets Of Nikola Tesla

The Missing Secrets Of Nikola Tesla

Wireless free energy and radio technology, particle beam death ray weaponry distributed in puzzle parts to different governments, weather modification and many more interesting subjects in this great documentary which is presented by a Cylon! (Expect a Battlestar Galactica post coming up soon by the way).

Fresco & RAW: Scientific Method & E-Prime applied to Society

Jacque Fresco: (No) Utopia

The Scientific Method applied socially in a resource based economy, as explained in Jacque Fresco's work (Read this excellent essay: Future and Beyond by Jacque Fresco) and the excellent documentary Future by Design, - combined with E-prime (English without "is" or "being") that Robert Anton Wilson popularized - could lead to a society of much better understanding, tolerance and progress than we have now.

This quote comes to mind:
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, design a building, conn a ship, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve an equation, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

Spiral Dynamics

Great article at that explains Spiral Dynamics very simple and effectively, at the link you can also listen to the article!

Ever heard of “Spiral Dynamics”? Very cool stuff put forward by Don Beck and Chris Cowan.

Here’s the quick overview:
People and cultures go through different stages of development. The Spiral guys like to color-code them to make it easier to keep track. It goes like this:

RED. Think: Terrible twos. I’ll blow you up if you piss me off. (Yikes!)
Think: Ten Commandments. Fundamentalist anything. Rules are paramount. Literal interpretations of the Bible are absolutely (God damnit!!) correct. Ahem.
Think: Wall Street. Academia. Science and ambition are key here.
. Think: Environmentalism. Pluralism. All is one. Non-violent.

So, the idea goes that we all evolve through different stages of development. All of those stages above are part of what they call the “first tier.” Here’s the funny thing about those perspectives: they’re all convinced they’re 100% right.

It’s a big food fight.
GREEN looks at ORANGE and says, “You greedy capitalists!!! You’re good for nothing and totally destroying our planet! And, my non-violent self HATES you!”
looks at GREEN and says, “You tree-hugging, New Agey hippies!! Get a job and contribute to the economy, will ya?!? And quit looking at those crystals.”
BLUE looks at everyone and says, “You’re all going to hell because you don’t believe in [insert favorite God here], God damnit!!”
looks at everyone and says, "I hate you!!! I’m blowing you up.”

Everything is “either, or.”
No one can see the validity of the other perspectives.
Not so good.

The idea?
Let’s consciously evolve as individuals and as a culture to a “second-tier” level of consciousness. Here, for the first time, we can hold multiple perspectives. We can see that, in the words of Ken Wilber, “No one is smart enough to be 100% wrong.” :)

What’s that look like?
Well, you can see the truth in the need to take care of our environment AND the need for a powerful economy AND the need for rules and regulations AND the need to take aggressive action when the situation demands it.

Powerful. VERY powerful.

Daily Dedroidify: Lost knowledge - The Great Library of Alexandria

Daily Dedroidify: Lost knowledge - The Great Library of Alexandria

The Royal Library of Alexandria was once the largest in the world. It is assumed to have been founded at the beginning of the 3rd century BC during the reign of Ptolemy II of Egypt and is estimated to have stored at its peak 400,000 to 700,000 parchment scrolls. Not surprisingly, the Great Library became a symbol for knowledge itself.

All that is left of many of the volumes are tantalizing titles that hint at all the history lost from the building's destruction. Few events in ancient history are as controversial as the destruction of the Library, as the historical record is both contradictory and incomplete. There is a growing consensus among historians that the Library of Alexandria likely suffered from several destructive events, notably burnings by the Romans, but that the destruction of Alexandria's pagan temples by Christians in the late 4th century was probably the most severe and final one.

About Carthage
It was the year 146 B.C. Phoenician Carthage was in its death throes at the end of the third, and last, Punic War with Rome. The Romans had devastated the city, and only the citadel with its temple remained to be conquered. Finally, the courage of the commanding general of Carthage faltered. He crossed the lines, fell on his knees before the Roman general, and begged vainly for his life. Just then, above them on the wall, surrounded by fires from the burning temple, appeared the wife of the Carthaginian general, their two small children in her arms. She screamed curses on her husband for his cowardice and curses on the Romans for their destruction of her city. Then, pressing her children to herself, she jumped into the fires, choosing death for them all rather than lives of slavery.
Needless to say, she won the respect of the Romans and of all those who have heard her story since. It is said that the conquering Roman general wept as Carthage burned. Laid out before him, he perceived the transience of all human constructs, and foresaw the day when his own city, Rome, would suffer a similar fate.

Jon Klimo on the Afterlife, Suicide and Channeling

Coast to Coast Art Bell interview with Jon Klimo on the afterlife, suicide and channeling research: Parapsychologist and world's leading authority on the scientific investigation of channeling, Jon Klimo discussed what happens in the afterlife to those who commit suicide.

Also check this episode: Prof. Jon Klimo spoke about his research into channeling and contact with other realms. Channeling, which includes mediumship (communicating with deceased spirits), can be with any source that is outside oneself and is not from this level of reality. A person might go into a trance state and begin speaking or writing as the entity. In other cases, people receive telepathic messages, he explained.

Klimo shared some of his personal channeling experiences in which he has gone into a mildly altered state. He first sets his intention to be of service to others, and then asks to be in contact with evolved beings, rather than lower astral entities. In one instance, while giving a lecture, he spontaneously began channeling, and a number of clairvoyants in the audience later reported they saw spirit guides & Pleiadian beings hovering over him. He also touched on his research regarding suicide and the afterlife, which he conducted with Pamela Rae Heath M.D.

Here is the first one on youtube though it's with a rather disturbing pic, a slashed arm with blood, though think 'special effects' if you really want to youtube it.

I'm very skeptical about channeling myself, that's exactly why I listened to it.
Very interesting stuff.

Rupert Sheldrake recovering from Stabbing, the Voices did it

Well this sure is an interesting story, from Reality Sandwich.

Rupert Sheldrake, best known for his theory of morphic resonance, was stabbed in the left thigh with a dagger after his talk at the April 2nd International Science and Consciousness Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is recovering quickly with the help of surgery, prayer and healing techniques like Reiki and Healing Touch. His assailant, a Japanese man who spoke with Sheldrake earlier that week, was tackled in front of the stage and is now awaiting arraignment in the Santa Fe jail.

Sheldrake tells of his first encounter with the man at the conference:

"My attacker was Japanese, and had arrived from Japan only a few days beforehand. He had spoken to me the day before my lecture, telling me he was hearing voices. He was obviously in distress. I later learned that he had told several other people about the voices, and some had tried to help him. But no one anticipated that he would turn violent, and neither I, nor anyone else I know of, had any premonition of it. Although the report in USA Today said that he was "disturbed" by my lecture, which was on the extended mind, this was misleading; he was disturbed anyway. In any case, his English was probably too poor to understand much of what I said. The fact that I was speaking in the final session of the conference may have had more to do with it - if he was going to do something spectacular, this was his last chance. After stabbing me, he was rapidly brought to the floor by an Australian rugby player, and was held down by several men until the police led him away in handcuffs. While on the ground, he apparently said that the voices had told him to attack me. He is now in Santa Fe jail awaiting trial. I feel no anger towards him, but am pleased that he is locked away and unable to harm anyone else."

His recovery is going remarakably well and has revealed a sense of community and solidarity among supporters:

"I was carried along by a great surge of love and well-wishing, with messages pouring in from around the world conveyed to me via [my wife] Jill and via Larry and Barbara Dossey. I learned that at the conference itself, immediately after the stabbing, dozens of people formed a circle to pray for me. Other chanted in a nearby church. My family and many friends around the world were praying for me. Several of my visitors gave me various forms of healing, including Reiki, and one of the nursing staff, who was also a practitioner of Healing Touch, visited me at nights just before I went to sleep, leaving me feeling as if I were floating like a feather."

He is walking again and even doing speaking engagments due in part to everyone's prayers and positive thoughts:

"I am very grateful to all those people who have helped me here in Santa Fe, and to all those at home and around the world who have been praying for me and sending me their love and support. It has made all the difference."
