Battlestargate Galactica Symbolism (updated)

Along with earlier post "Are we the Evil that we see?" ties in nicely the storyline of the new Battlestar Galactica. (Spoiler alert! Article updated for latest episode) It seems that the Cylons and Humans will eventually have to come together and realize their interconnectedness to find peace and fulfillment.

The Cylons have even started shooting their own who wanted to do some cold reprogramming after even the raiders were acting beyond their programming, in other words their BS. Or was this programming of a higher or deeper level, or was it emerging consciousness? In the latest episode even the Centurions who now have the gift of reason showed signs of imminent rebellion and there was an attempt to obliterate the Six model line, after D'Anna's line already has been put to sleep.

Among the humans too the ones who realized they were Cylons from the start go beyond theirs (or are they?) and stay on the Human side, on the only side they really know, the one of their friends. Inevitably Hera (Isis), the Human-Cylon Hybrid of Sharon & Helo will have a role to play in this, for one thing her blood had amazing regenerative properties as it healed president Roslin from her cancer and perhaps she may heal much more. Until things got crazy in the latest episode as the Cylon programming of Tory has really come through, as she 'saved' the second hybrid baby. I hadn't even thought of that before that scene.

The show is amazing for any conspiracy and consciousness explorer, and just excellent period. Included in the show have been the use of entheogens for visions, suicide bombings as the last refuge against a seemingly unstoppable self-created enemy, faith versus reason, torture and prisoner abuse, media manipulation and politics, betrayal and revenge and forgiveness, war on terror and civil liberties, trust, cold reason and survival versus compassion and heavy sacrifice, human polytheism versus the Cylon monotheism and much more. Executive producer Ronald D. Moore has said of the Cylons "They have aspects of Al Qaeda, and they have aspects of the Catholic Church, and they have aspects of America."

The Human Survivors seek the path to Earth not fully realizing what destiny lies ahead, and of course in the temple and the Eye of Jupiter we can find some wonderful stargate symbolism (top and left corner in second image), as you can see in this vid along with some of the other topics I mentioned.


Battlestar Galactica - Requiem for a Dream (Lux Aeterna)

Southland Tales, Sri Yantra, and the Butterfly Effect

Steve Willner at Labyrinth of the Psychonaut has an amazing synchromystic trilogy of wonderful videos up. You can still donate something for his jaw surgery for which he has to raise 54,300 dollars! Anyone who donates $100 or more at his website labyrinthofthepsychonaut.com will receive all of the High Resolution vids he has for sale at his site, as well as a LOP TShirt once they are printed later this month.
The vids are just amazing, the most recent trilogy - what a treat by the way - combining a lot of synchs again starting with partly-Philip K. Dick-inspired Southland tales, Arthur C. Clarke's 2001 and many more. I really look forward to Steve's vids each time, they're the best form of entertainment on the planet I find. If synchromysticism gets more popular it could really help to enlighten a lot of people in a lot of areas and be a great catalyst for more too.

here's the link to the blogpost of the synchromystic trilogy. Check it out for the additional text, wonderful images and sources. Here's the first vid:

New X-Files movie: I want to Believe


X-Files: I want to believe teaser trailer

The Secret Sun linked 2 great vids of Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz from the X-files responding to questions of fans, including Christopher from Secret Sun, see if you can spot his question - I did!

"I want to believe." is the title of the new movie.
I love the X-Files, but - from a worst case perspective - this poster slogan I find rather bold & ignorant. Not to use 'belief' (which divides - ok it unites too, but only those who believe the same as you - and filters) but even worse, making people 'want to believe'. (Though redeemingly in the trailer they say "there are beliefs that cannot be trusted")

A whole other level of confirmation bias:

which is the concept of filtering out info that doesn't agree with your BS (belief system) and only accepting what confirms previous assumptions. I find this slogan could be a big reason for a lot of ignorance in the UFO & alien researching community.

'Believe' nothing, explore everything!

NeuroSoup: Entheogens and Peak Experiences

Great vid discussing peak experiences, quoting from Ken Wilber's Integral Psychology - which is highly recommended for an in-depth exploration of the stages of consciousness, entheogens, meditation practice and spirituality.

Olbermann on worst Presidential Debate ever


Olbermann on worst Presidential Debate ever

Remember, that doesn't mean it can't get any worse. Sean Hannity who isn't taken seriously by any human being with a brain gets to write in questions, awesome. Congratulations political and media puppets! Keep it up and the consensus reality implosion will be so automatic the world won't know what hit it!
