Scroll down and on the right hand side you can download it under the image with the embedded vid in the middle.

Jacque Fresco (born March 13, 1916) is an industrial engineer, architectural designer, social engineer and futurist based in Florida. His optimistic view and desire to create solutions that maximally benefit the greatest number of people stem from his formative years during the Great Depression. To this day he writes and lectures extensively on subjects ranging from the holistic design of sustainable cities, energy efficiency, natural resource management and advanced automation, focusing on the benefits it will bring to society.

"It is not enough to criticize society without offering a workable alternative." Jacque Fresco

DMT: The Spirit Molecule Documentary

The much anticipated DMT documentary The Spirit Molecule. If you don't know what DMT is check my Pineal Gland page at my main site.

Along with the book's author and DMT researcher Rick Strassman - who was permitted to embark on the first human research with psychedelic, hallucinogenic, or entheogenic substances in the 1990s in the United States after 20 years of shameful law enforced intermission in the field - it features some wonderful people like Stanislav Grof, Alex Grey, Graham Hancock, Daniel Pinchbeck, Dennis McKenna, Ralph Metzner, Douglas Rushkoff, Ralph Abraham, Erik Davis, Huston Smith, Joe Rogan, etc!

This is a short video interview with Rick Strassman in the documentary "Magical Egypt 5: Navigating the Afterlife", about DMT.

Subliminals


Subliminals

This is both funny & serious to me.
If you don't get one, check the youtube comments at the link.
A good hint when observing any media: always look at the spaces in between, always look at the background, the decorations and the clothes, etc - never just at the main thing alone, like the talking heads on tv for instance. You'll find watching movies and series suddenly becomes much more interesting (if you have a basic grasp of symbolism, if you don't yet, it's fascinating to dive into!)

Rob Ager film analysis

I love this guy's stuff. Don't read on here if you can't handle crazy surgery shit, lol: people I tell this too usually cringe and curl up haha. I've had laser surgery on my eyes, so I've had eyeclips on my eyes like the scene in Clockwork Orange (and had seen the movie before that... not helpful!) and saw a knife cutting my eyes open, upon which I had to keep my eyes still, so the laser beaming into my eye was able to do its work well. All was fine until I came out of the operation room and started shaking uncontrollably for a few minutes. It was worth the sacrifice though, as you come out such a thing stronger and you know, you can see like normal people without glasses or contacts.

Who Watches the Watchmen?


A first look at the Watchmen Movie

Watchmen is a twelve-issue comic book limited series written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons. To date, Watchmen remains the only graphic novel to win a Hugo Award, and is also the only graphic novel to appear on Time Magazine's 2005 list of "the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present."

Watchmen is set in 1985, in an alternative history United States where costumed adventurers are real and the country is edging closer to a nuclear war with the Soviet Union (the Doomsday Clock is at five minutes to midnight). It tells the story of a group of past and present superheroes and the events surrounding the mysterious murder of one of their own. Watchmen depicts superheroes as real people who must confront ethical and personal issues, who struggle with neuroses and failings, and who - with one notable exception - lack anything recognizable as super powers. Watchmen's deconstruction of the conventional superhero archetype, combined with its innovative adaptation of cinematic techniques and heavy use of symbolism, multi-layered dialogue, and metafiction, has influenced both comics and film.

One Nation Under Siege


One Nation Under Siege

From documentary filmmaker William Lewis comes a bone chilling documentary on the spying, tracking and control of the American public. Highly recommended. Official Site.

Matthew Delooze and the trannies

Thanks to Gosporn (mandatory internet warning for sexual content) for introducing me to Michael Delooze (official website here), who is also into synchromysticism, symbolism & conspiracy. He has some great articles that I just only started checking out:

"Matthew Delooze holds that the world is in thrall to trans-dimensional beings (trannies?) [dedroidify goes ROFL!] who feed on our spiritual energy. This energy is created via emotion and ‘respect’, AKA worship. The general idea being that these “reptilians” have bribed the elite with wealth and social position in order to facilitate the flow of this spiritual “spice”. The spice is created via spectacular public events (sports, concerts, religious festivals, disasters) and then siphoned off to these beings through symbols, the most powerful being monumental architecture - the spiritual milking machines of the human race. That’s pretty wild, but no crazier than any other religion - and it would explain a lot." Gosporn

Daily Dedroidify: Buddha

Daily Dedroidify: Buddha

Siddhartha Gautama was a spiritual teacher believed to have lived between approximately 563 BCE and 483 BCE on the Indian subcontinent, in the Gangetic Plains area of modern Nepal and northern India. He became "the Buddha" ("Awakened One") after embarking on a quest for spiritual meaning.

"Are you a God?" they asked the Buddha.
"No," he replied.
"Are you an angel, then?"
"No."
"A saint?"
"No."
"Then what are you?"
Replied the Buddha: "I am awake."

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of teachers, elders, or wise men.
Believe only after careful observation and analysis, when you find that it agrees with reason, and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all. Then accept it and live up to it."
Buddha

(and even then keep your Belief System flexible
my motto is "believe nothing", so you don't filter out
anything that goes against your (uninformed) beliefs.
Even Buddha didn't know how weird reality was gonna get.)

"The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism." Albert Einstein

My opinion is religion is an obsolete concept, spirituality will suffice.
