Sisters of Mercy: Temple of Love

Sisters of Mercy & Ofra Haza: Temple of Love

In the black sky thunder sweeping
Underground and over water
Sounds of crying weeping will not save
Your faith for bricks and dreams for mortar
All your prayers must seem as nothing
Ninety-six below the wave
When stone is dust and only air remains

Doughlas Rushkoff Interview: Media Resistance

Doughlas Rushkoff Interview:
Media Resistance at The Digital Minds blog.

Douglas Rushkoff talks about open source Judaism, dealing with Media Viruses and the future.

"I've always understood money to be a medium - something created, with rules, and with biases. But most people seem to think money is real. And that's a true obstacle."

"My utopian vision of the future is people engaging with one another in real space. Literally breathing together in the same room. If media can make the world more efficient so that people get more time to be with each other, for real, then it will have done its job."

F*** all of them

"Fuck all of them. May drug-resistant syphilis saturate their bloodlines, may their genitals wither and drop off. You especially, Obama. You alone offered hope for real change, you alone made the unrepentant realists among us think Hell, if that guy is making it work, maybe we can turn this thing around after all. You actually made an optimist out of me, for a little while. And because of that, you suck harder than all the rest."
Novelist Peter Watts

Something to think about

"I think many New Age efforts at spirituality really fail because they're so taken by the light, and so eager to hold up light and warmth in a world that can be cold and dark, that they don't honor enough the darkness, the sinking, the suffering, and the Shadow."
Matthew Fox

Daily Dedroidify: OOPArt

Daily Dedroidify: OOPArt, from the acronym for out-of-place artifact, is a term coined by American zoologist Ivan T. Sanderson for a historical, archaeological or paleontological object found in a very unusual, or even an impossible, location. The term covers a wide variety of objects. They range from material studied by mainstream science, such as the Iron pillar in India, to so-called "forbidden archaeology" that is far outside the mainstream.

Critics regard many cases of OOPArt as the result of mistaken interpretation or wishful thinking, while supporters regard OOPArt as an indication that mainstream science is overlooking huge areas of knowledge, either willfully or through ignorance. While some artifacts have indeed been proven to be mistaken interpretations, a lot are still left unexplained and ignored by mainstream science, has a few articles of those OOPArts sprinkled around.

Of course if something doesn't seem very likely or probable to your expert opinion, you can safely keep ignoring these strange things - mainstream science does if it doesn't fit in with their existing scheme! ;p

Burned history, censored archeology, we don't know anything... unless we search for it. There is wonder in this world.

New Dedroidify page: Robert Anton Wilson
Featuring all on-site links, quotes and the Cosmic Trigger excerpt on Belief Systems.

RAW was a futurist, novelist, scientific philosopher, libertarian and a Ph.D in psychology. He's written many great works of fiction and non-fiction. In a 2003 interview with High Times magazine, RAW described himself as a "Model Agnostic" which he says "consists of never regarding any model or map of Universe with total 100% belief or total 100% denial. Following Korzybski, I put things in probabilities, not absolutes... My only originality lies in applying this zetetic attitude outside the hardest of the hard sciences, physics, to softer sciences and then to non-sciences like politics, ideology, jury verdicts and, of course, conspiracy theory."
More simply, he claims 'not to believe anything,' since 'belief is the death of thought.' Wilson described his writing as an "attempt to break down conditioned associations—to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps and no one model elevated to the Truth.

"My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone, but agnosticism about everything." - Click here to jump to more quotes and this article on Belief Systems.

"Various medical authorities swarm in and out of here predicting I have between two days and two months to live. I think they are guessing. I remain cheerful and unimpressed. I look forward without dogmatic optimism but without dread. I love you all and I deeply implore you to keep the lasagna flying. Please pardon my levity, I don't see how to take death seriously. It seems absurd."

"Whatever the Thinker thinks, the Prover will prove. And if the Thinker thinks passionately enough, the Prover will prove the thought so conclusively that you will never talk a person out of such a belief, even if it is something as remarkable as the notion that there is a gaseous vertebrate of astronomical heft ("GOD") who will spend all eternity torturing people who do not believe in his religion."
