The New Age Movement, Aliens and Cosmic COINTELPRO

By Laura Knight-Jadzcyk (her blog link), check out this excerpt (3 pages, links at bottom of each page). Well, this will make a lot of seekers reconsider properties of their belief system. It sure did with mine. I'll have to re-read it a few more times even and delve into some more Castaneda, although the fictional & real-life Castaneda aspects make me not trust that man very much either. Though don't let my first lines fool you, I have no idea how truthful this is again, I have no idea what the level of disinfo or cointelpro, bs (belief influenced & censored information) or plain ignorance is in this research. Holy crap has the datastream been corrupted. This text involves channeling ("Cassiopaeans", supposedly us in the future) & negative entities feeding on us so that always raises my BS detector to the max but intriguing nonetheless. If anyone has some comments on this, I'd appreciate it. (will probably update this post once I've re-read the whole thing attentively.)

Here are some quotes I liked from it:
"One of the greatest accomplishments of the seers of the Conquest was a construct he called the three-phase progression. By understanding the nature of man, they were able to reach the incontestable conclusion that if seers can hold their own in facing [human] petty tyrants, they can certainly face the unknown with impunity, and then they can even stand the presence of the unknowable.
The average man's reaction is to think that the order of that statement should be reversed," he went on. "A seer who can hold his own in the face of the unknown can certainly face petty tyrants. But that's not so. What destroyed the superb seers of ancient times was that assumption. We know better now. We know that nothing can temper the spirit of a warrior as much as the challenge of dealing with impossible people in positions of power. Only under those conditions can warriors acquire the sobriety and serenity to stand the pressure of the unknowable."
Don Juan - Carlos Castaneda

The others are all from the author Laura Knight-Jadzcyk:
Evil is REAL on its own level, and the task of man is to navigate the Cosmic Maze without being defiled by the Evil therein. This is the root of Free Will. Man faces a predicament as REAL as himself: he is forced to choose - to utilize his knowledge by applying it - between the straight path which leads to Being, and the crooked paths which lead to Non-Being. Human beings are required to discern between good and evil - consciousness energy directors - at every stage of their existence in this reality.

The task of the Seeker is to discover what is immutable within, and to purify and amplify it. This is the development of Will. Will is a relationship, which follows knowledge while knowledge follows the object of knowledge. In the process of "ascension," the object of knowledge is YOU. Knowledge, in and of itself, has no effects. YOU, however, the seeker, can give to knowledge what you actually are, in yourself, thereby displaying YOURSELF in knowledge by your actions in concert with your knowledge.

As noted, there are many Names of God that call to us in our present state of existence. But you are not required to answer every one that calls. The fact that human beings are, in general, ignorant of their own true "essence" gives them the illusion of freedom. And the fact is, all paths come from God, and all paths Lead back to God, but again, it can be via different faces. As the Shaykh says: "Unto Allah all things come home, and he is the end of every path. However, the important thing is which divine name you will reach and to which you will come home?"

And this brings us to what the Shaykh calls "perspicacity." This is the special development of the "eye of insight," or "seeing the unseen" that is crucial to the Seeker. Just as the physical eye, with the refraction of light from the Sun, can discern between the large and the small, the beautiful and the ugly, colors, the moving from the still, high and low, the ability to see the unseen is a property of an "inner light." This light reveals to the seeker things about external objects that are NOT apparent to the five senses. It reveals to its possessor when a choice that may appear to be benevolent, is a step on the path of Evil. It reveals when a choice that may appear to human estimation as negative is actually a difficult step to felicity for all involved. The Sufis tell us that some individuals have achieved such a level of "seeing" that - upon seeing a person's footprint on the ground, even if the person is not present - they are able to say whether he is following a life of felicity or wretchedness.

What is evident is that those who have it possess an immutable nature of Being which is able to "see" good and evil (symbolized also by the masonic checkered game-of-life-floor?) - they do not see "only good."

As the reader can easily see by now, the teachings of the current spate of New Age Gurus constitute the idea that we can exert our will and voice that exists "down here" upward to change what is "above" us in order to change our reality down here.They tell us that we can change our lives, our thinking, move our brains into harmony, or aid the "heart in opening," obtaining "harmony and balance" which is then going to "open windows in our mind, our heart, and our spirit," etc. It is claimed that we can do this basically by assuming God's point of view that "all is one, all is love." It is stated, (with some truth I should add, since good disinformation is always wrapped in a warm and fuzzy truth), that, "without Divine Unity inside of us, these windows of inspiration are rarely available." What they do NOT tell you is that the staircase to Divine Unity of Being requires a full field of awareness of Being and Non-being, and this can only be achieved by divesting oneself of the controls of Nonbeing which are, indeed, part of Being, but which seek to obviate Being in a paradoxical sleep of "Unification" which often begins by believing the lie that "knowledge protects" simply by having it.

Also check this article: The Positive/Negative Realms of Higher Densities

'Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradiction between the intelligence of man the engineer and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behavior. Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal.'

George Carlin passed on June 22nd

George Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, actor and author who won four Grammy Awards for his comedy albums.

Carlin was especially noted for his political and black humor and his observations on language, psychology, and religion along with many taboo subjects. Carlin and his "Seven Dirty Words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a narrow 5-4 decision by the justices affirmed the government's right to regulate Carlin's act on the public airwaves.

In the 2000s, Carlin's stand-up routines focused on the flaws in modern-day America. He often took on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American culture.

He placed second on the Comedy Central cable television network list of the 10 greatest stand-up comedians, ahead of Lenny Bruce and behind Richard Pryor.[20] He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and was also the first person to host Saturday Night Live.

Daily Dedroidify: Reiki

Daily Dedroidify: Reiki

Reiki is a form of spiritual practice, used as a complementary therapy and proposed for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental diseases. Reiki balances the chakra energy centers and/or heals an ailment energetically. Mikao Usui developed Reiki in early 20th century Japan, where he said he received the ability of 'healing without energy depletion' after three weeks of fasting and meditating on Mount Kurama. Practitioners use a technique similar to the laying on of hands, which they say will channel "healing energy" (ki). Practitioners state that energy flows through their palms to bring about healing and that the method can be used for self-treatment as well as treatment of others.

Reiki seems to work at the 5th circuit neuro-somatic (directed attention and mind-body connection) of the 8 Circuits of Consciousness model. Possibly at the 6th neuro-electric circuit too considering the flow of Chi.
Reiki is taught through 3 or 4 levels, you find a reiki master (level 3/4) to 'attune' you and teach you reiki.
# Level 1: basic theories and procedures of how to work with Reiki energy, placement of hands on each chakra, self-healing daily for a month and healings for other people are given free
# Level 2: use of three symbols which are said to enhance the healing effect and allow for distance healing
# Level 3: master, can attune others

My L1 teacher was Tracey Owen, check out her website.
In some systems there are more advancements to be learned, for instance stages in the different elements application of energy and more in Tera Mai reiki by Kathleen Millner, interesting - but pricey :p, I once attended a healing session by her in Belgium though and felt her presence radiate as they say of spiritually advanced people. Quite an experience!

I will update this page later by describing different healings I've done on myself and others to give you a clearer picture of how it works.
Instructions to try and give yourself a reiki healing
The human mind is capable of much, through experiment (mystics are scientists after all) I've learned that people don't always need an attunement, being a placement of symbols in the crown chakra, to activate the possibility of self-healing or even healing others with reiki. Try the following instructions, this is just my way of doing reiki there are many others and they are probably all ok, and see how much possibility lays before you:
Lay or sit down and relax, breathe deep and easy from down below - not the chest - throughout the session
affirm that you are a part of the universal consciousness and source and you are able to tap into the universal energy called reiki.

1. grounding
Make sure you're feet are touching the floor at all times during reiki for beginner safety. First feel and see white energy with every inhalation and exhalation go from the top of your head through your body through the floor, through the ground and deep down into the middle of the earth say to yourself something like: "I am now grounding myself to mother earth, thank you mother earth for grounding me"
after doing it for a few breaths you could be able to feel the energy come into and out of your feet and legs when you do or when you've done this for a minute or 2 or so,
say: "I am now grounded to mother earth, I will remaind grounded for as long as is necessary for this reiki session, thank you mother earth."

(optional: you can visualise white positive healing light coming in to your left leg with every inhalation, and visualise black stagnant or bad light coming out of your right leg to a specific spot that needs healing, you can also use both legs at the same time for the black/white light, then alternate with exhalation/inhalation)

2. cocooning
INHALE and feel the light energy go up from your feet through your body through your head crown, EXHALE, and fountain out forming a cocoon that starts encircling your body from head to feet, then see the light energy come in your feet again as you INHALE and go up your body again, do this for a few minutes
say to yourself as you do this: "I am now in my sacred space, this cocoon of love and light energy only allows in positive energy and beings of love and light, all negative energy is rid out, I am now in my cocoon of love and light, my *insert your methaphysical favorites here* keep me safe, I will remain in my sacred space for as long as is necessary for my protection during this reiki session."
relax as you do this and feel safe, know your *insert your methaphysical favorites here* are looking out for you and know that fear ony takes the shape you give it, so visualise yourself in a white cocoon of love and light and feel the divinity within you

3. reiki
say to yourself: "I now open myself to receive the flow of reiki, thank you *insert your methaphysical favorites here* for this blessed gift of reiki, (feel and visualise this too:) I now feel reiki flowing into my crown chakra, flowing down my head and arms to my hands and radiating out in a glow" (you will know when it's working when you feel the loving warmth/cold (depends on energy needed for you at this time) radiating from your palms into your body.

then you can either do a body part that needs healing for a half hour or 45 minutes or an hour or even longer (if you have some good tunes or an audiobook or a video it can work out)
or normally a reiki session includes around five or more minutes each on: crown chakra (violet): the side of the eye temples along the ears, with the palms at eye level
third eye chakra (indigo purple): covering the eyes and forehead
throat chakra (blue): cupping the hands on the throat gently
heart chakra (green or pink): across the chest (middlefingertips barely not touching)
solar plexus chakra (yellow): above the belly button (mftips barely not touching)
sacral chakra (orange): below the belly button (mft bnt)
root chakra (red): alongside the private parts :p

you can visualise the indicated color of a spinning vortex of energy
on each chakra if you want, it's no biggy if you don't do it right away

the qualities of the chakras are:
crown: spirituality
third eye: intuition, wisdom, forgiveness, psychic
throat: communication, self-expression
heart: love and friendship, relationships
solar plexus: self esteem, personal power
sacral: emotions, unconscious, sexuality, creativity
root: survival, physical needs, material real world matters

after you're done (your time is up or you feel energized enough), say: "I am now stopping the flow of reiki, I will remain grounded and in my sacred space for as long as is necessary for my protection, thank you *insert your methaphysical favorites here* for this blessed healing and gift." Give yourself time to readjust to the material, get up slowly as you would out of meditation and just feel thankful that you are able to heal yourself (and others) from now on :)

And then share the gift with others :)

Sri Ramana Maharshi Quotes

Happiness is your nature.
It is not wrong to desire it.
What is wrong is seeking it outside
when it is inside.

Nearly all mankind is more or less unhappy
because nearly all do not know the true Self.
Real happiness abides in Self-knowledge alone.
All else is fleeting.
To know one's Self
is to be blissful always.

...Bliss is not something to be got.
On the other hand you are always Bliss.
This desire [for Bliss] is born of the sense of incompleteness.
To whom is this sense of incompleteness?
Enquire. In deep sleep you were blissful.
Now you are not so.
What has interposed between that Bliss and this non-bliss?
It is the ego.
Seek its source and find you are Bliss.

Wanting to reform the world without discovering one's true self is like trying to cover the world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes.

We loosely talk of Self-realization, for lack of a better term. But how can one realize or make real that which alone is real? All we need to do is to give up our habit of regarding as real that which is unreal. All religious practices are meant solely to help us do this. When we stop regarding the unreal as real, then reality alone will remain, and we will be that.

'That inner Self, as the primeval Spirit,
Eternal, ever effulgent, full and infinite Bliss,
Single, indivisible, whole and living,
Shines in everyone as the witnessing awareness.
That self in its splendour, shining in the cavity of the heart
This self is neither born nor dies,
Neither grows nor decays,
Nor does it suffer any change.
When a pot is broken, the space within it is not,
And similarly, when the body dies the Self in it remains eternal.

Every living being longs always to be happy, untainted by sorrow; and everyone has the greatest love for himself, which is solely due to the fact that happiness is his real nature. Hence, in order to realize that inherent and untainted happiness, which indeed he daily experiences when the mind is subdued in deep sleep, it is essential that he should know himself. For obtaining such knowledge the inquiry 'Who am I?' in quest of the Self is the best means."

Reality is simply the loss of ego. Destroy the ego by seeking its identity. Because the ego is no entity it will automatically vanish and reality will shine forth by itself.

Quotes lovingly copied from PeacefulRivers, more quotes there.

I recommend the book Paul Brunton & Munagala Venkataramiah - Conversations with Ramana Maharshi, in short his way can be summarized as: Sit down in meditation, ask yourself "who am I?" (really), and don't stop until you find out.

Daily Dedroidify: 2000 year old Babylon Battery

Daily Dedroidify: 2000 year old Babylon Battery (more pics on site)

When filled with vinegar - or any other electrolytic solution - the jar produces about 1.1 volts. It was found in Khujut Rabu just outside Baghdad, composed of a clay jar with a stopper made of asphalt. Sticking through the asphalt is an iron rod surrounded by a copper cylinder.

There is no written record as to the exact function of the jar, but the best guess is that it was a type of battery. Scientists believe the batteries (if that is their correct function) were used to electroplate items such as putting a layer of one metal (gold) onto the surface of another (silver), a method still practiced in Iraq today.

Weather Channel founder & 30.000 scientists sue Al Gore for fraud

Weather Channel founder & 30.000 scientists sue Al Gore for fraud

To get some attention to the other side of the story which has been demonized. My first guess they only aired this on Fox News so the global warming believers could blame it on corporate influence or something. Ecorazzi sure has its mind made up while even mentioning 'skepticism'. Like other blogs as the one linked. All ignoring the selective evidence for global warming which is based on only a few hundred years.

“[I] have a feeling this is the opening,” Coleman said. “If the lawyers will take the case – sue the people who sell carbon credits. That includes Al Gore. That lawsuit would get so much publicity, so much media attention. And as the experts went to the media stand to testify, I feel like that could become the vehicle to finally put some light on the fraud of global warming.”

Vincent Callebaut's Luxurious Floating Ecopolis

Check out Belgian Vincent Callebaut's floating ecopolis. Freshome talks about the project about being a possible solution to rising sea levels, unfortunately this is a luxury retreat for 50.000 (rich) people. I feel Jacque Fresco's Venus Project which has similar-looking water projects (and many more) but focuses on using a resource based economy is a better solution than that by far but it's great to see more of these projects.

    Daily Dedroidify: The Collective Unconscious, the Circuit model and UFOs

    Daily Dedroidify: The Collective Unconscious, the Circuit model and UFOs

    Carl Jung's Collective Unconscious (Circuit 7 in Leary's 8 Circuit model) refers to that part of a person's unconscious which is common to all human beings. It contains archetypes, which are forms or symbols that are manifested by all people in all cultures. They are said to exist prior to experience, and are in this sense instinctual.

    Less mystical proponents of the Jungian model hold that the collective unconscious can be adequately explained as arising in each individual from shared instinct, common experience, and shared culture. The natural process of generalization in the human mind combines these common traits and experiences into a mostly identical substratum of the unconscious.

    In Jung's own words: "It transcends all differences of culture and consciousness and does not consist merely of contents capable of becoming conscious but of latent dispositions towards identical reactions. It, moreover, seems something like an unceasing stream or perhaps an ocean of images, figures which drift into consciousness in our dreams or in abnormal states of mind."

    He reasoned that if mind and thus reality are, for all intents and purposes, artificial (i.e. not objectively real in the Newtonian sense, but only perceptually apparent in the Einsteinian sense), then subconscious processes could affect the external reality for a given observer. (See also "Synchronicity") Therefore, if a need or desire for paraphysical events takes place in the nervous system of a given individual, it is not impossible that seemingly "real" external occurences will occur as manifestations of these subconsious processes. It has also been reported that these otherworldly visions can occur simultaneously in groups.

    The collective unconscious thus helps us understand religions, religious conversion, visions, the alien phenomenon, visions of the light, demons,... better as dreams, meditation, yoga, entheogens, astral projection, out-of-body experiences and near-death-experiences,... all can open the doorway to this collective unconscious that gets personally filtered as it were through our own reality tunnels. Opening our 7th circuit, as described in Timothy Leary's 8 Circuit Model of Consciousness which includes the collective unconscious as being the 7th circuit, or the neurogenetic circuit of consciousness - aka the "akashic records" of Theosophy or the "phylogenetic unconscious" of Grof and Ring.

    In a similar manner that the medieval alchemists projected their psyche into matter, Jung felt that modern man projected his inner state into the heavens,
    in this sense, the UFOs became modern symbols for the ancient gods which came to man's assistance in time of need.
    However, for those that go "Yay! See there are no aliens!" don't be so arrogant to assume you're alone in the multiverse!
    Jung's Collective Unconscious corresponds with the 7th Circuit, but... the 8th Circuit in Leary's model, is Cosmic Consciousness.
    (Just when you thought you'd figured it out!)

    (adapted) excerpt from RAW's Cosmic Trigger:
    When the nervous system is turned on to this quantum-level circuit, space-time is obliterated. "Out-of-body experiences," "astral projection," contact with alien (extraterrestrial?) "entities" or with a galactic Overmind,etc., such as I've experienced, have all been reported for thousands of years, not merely by the ignorant, the superstitious, the gullible, but often by the finest minds among us (Socrates, Giordano Bruno, Thomas Edison, Buckminster Fuller, Nikola Tesla, etc.). Such experiences are reported daily to parapsychologists and have been experienced by such scientists as Dr. John Lilly and Carlos Castaneda. Dr. Kenneth Ring has attributed these phenomena to what he calls, very appropriately:
    "the extraterrestrial unconscious."

    This means having access to other dimensions, which String & M Theory by the world's leading physicists now include. Alien experiences can just aswell be part of the collective unconscious or the extraterrestrial (or other-dimensional), if you check stories of abductees it's clear a lot are very subjective and obviously filtered through one's individual mind. One can imagine such an experience, and one can seem to contact other beings. Nothing is for certain obviously. One can assume we exist in the material, but have access to other dimensions of space and time. Exciting isn't it? :p I'll leave you with Terence Mckenna's thoughts:

    "People are so alienated from their own soul that when they meet their soul they think it comes from another star system."

    "The ufo is a mirage, being cast backward into time by the transcendental object at the end of time. (...) It's a compensatory image that haunts time because time is a kind of hologram, time is a fractal and fractal means that the same pattern is embedded again and again in a relationship of self-similarity. So because the transcendental object exists somewhere ahead of us in history there must be necessarily a tiny part of it somewhere nearby. And this is what the ufo is I think, and this is why nobody's ever gonna show you a chunk of it, and they're never gonna put an extraterrestrial on television, because it isn't that kind of a creature, it's a compensatory image from the end of time."

    "We have been too long under the spell of the idea that only the past creates the present, the present is actually largely created by appetite for the future and this would seem to me a highly improbable idea had I not taken psychedelics and gotten this hyperdimensional view of the system that we're living in and then we can see that yes, history is not a random walk, it's not a series of undirected random fluxuations. History is a proces of fractal self-complexification that builds on whatever it has achieved, and so upon the complexity of animal organisation is laying the complexity of human language, upon which is layed the complexity of symbolic signification of that language, upon writing is layed technology and so forth and so on, so we are in the sense of giving birth to or creating the object of our theology, which is a kind of god or goddess, and the UFO is simply an indicator that we are so close now to encountering the concrescent transcendental object that is able to haunt the skies of earth and people who live in trailer parks :p"
    Terence McKenna - from Under the teaching tree

    "The deeper 'layers' of the psyche lose their individual uniqueness as they retreat further and further into darkness... they become increasingly collective until they are universalized and extinguished in the body's materiality... Hence 'at bottom' the psyche is simply 'world.'"
    Carl Gustav Jung

    Is Ron Paul a Mason?

    ATS has a thread up on this, as for the posts in that thread - ATS is well known for having Masonic Apologists on their forum, even moderators. These pictures are hardly proof of course, could just be a limp handshake. Also, I don't believe in the Masonic conspiracy, yet I don't trust them either, at all. Hell, Lon Milo Duquette is a confessed mason and he's awesome *guitar solo*. Though that doesn't mean I completely trust him either, especially since Leo Zagami said he's been bought for the dark side, though again, that doesn't mean I distrust him either :p. Or that I trust or distrust Zagami Complicated isn't it? :p Lon dropped by here and could joke about the accusations which is always a great sign.
    Ron Paul is complicated too, his track record is impressive though I'm sure there are a few interesting stumbles here and there left undiscovered too. Remember, after "A New Hope", the Empire struck back. It's not like any of this matters or anything. "Think about that for a while. Ponder it while the music from Jeopardy plays and roll it around in your mouth a little before swallowing it." Duquette ;p But don't take assumptions for truth, nevahr!

    Daily Dedroidify: A Toltec guide to personal freedom

    Daily Dedroidify: A Toltec guide to personal freedom

    Don Miguel Ángel Ruiz (born 1952) is a Mexican author, shaman, and teacher.
    He was a surgeon until a near-death experience impelled him to seek answers in ancestral traditions of the Toltec in which his mother was a curandera (healer), and his grandfather a nagual (shaman) who, after death, continued to teach Ruiz in his dreams.

    His most famous and influential work, The Four Agreements, was published in 1997 and has sold around 4 million copies. It advocates personal freedom from agreements and beliefs that we have made with ourselves and others that are creating limitation and unhappiness in our lives. Ultimately, it is about finding one's own integrity, self-love, and peace within this reality. The Four Agreements are:

    # Be Impeccable With Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
    # Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
    # Don’t Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
    # Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

    Ruiz also wrote a workbook as a companion to The Four Agreements. He then wrote several other books, including The Voice of Knowledge, Prayers, and The Mastery of Love. In Beyond Fear, by Mary Carroll Nelson, he discusses some of his beliefs through a series of interviews, including his belief in the legend of Atlantis; his belief that the sun entered its sixth age on January 11, 1992, which should lead to a new age for humanity; and his belief in the spiritual power of the pyramid of the sun at Teotihuacan.

    3 (audio)books I personally recommend are:
    Don Miguel Ruiz - The Four Agreements
    Don Miguel Ruiz - The Mastery Of Love
    Don Miguel Ruiz - The Voice Of Knowledge

    He speaks of change.. and well.. change is what i seek.

    "Only Two people can becomes President in this country. A Democrat or a Republican. This election we have Obama or McCain. Voting for anyone but is just a waste of votes. If I had to choose... I pick Obama. I refuse to vote Republican.. and I'd never vote for McCain regardless.
    He speaks of change.. and well.. change is what i seek. He is in no way like Bush. Come on nowww. lol."

    I received this on myspace *shudder* by an American girl... I told her I don't take things at face value, like her avatar which barely showed her face but did show cleavage, obviously, only low self-esteem chicks need to do this, especially if they already have a man. Gotta love a handy metaphor dropped in your lap. I told her I looked at Obama's voting record, affiliates, masonic gestures, family ties and that I happened to notice that he said he will bomb the shit out of Iran and stay in Iraq. I told her to enjoy the hopenosis show & the one-party system illusion of choice. Her avatar changed today, my respect has increased just a tiny bit. lol. It may not be too nice but looking at the next post, I value truth over love or anything, any day, though love is a close 2nd, I'm not part of the optimism gestapo. Honesty > hypocrisy or 'political correctness' (what an oxymoron). I have been sent here to destroy any assumptions waved at me, it is my duty. Hope you can believe in? How about truth you can get over. Believing anything is fooling yourself, knowing is something else.

    This is also prompting me, along with many other experiences in the last months, to lessen my Model Agnosticism by which I simply mean elevating my catmas (current opinions based on experience and learning) to a higher degree of truth. As my own BS filtering search light only seems to pick out people with ridiculous belief systems, like this guy who was talking to me about how meditation can make you lose your soul, or was it something to do with the devil, or was it losing consciousness or something (I replied: FAINTING? :p), lol. He didn't even know what he meant himself, I just asked him if he meant psychosis, he really wasn't sure lol. Thankfully the convo ended there, and thankfully you can not lose what you never had, faith in humanity :p. Will this never change? Hell no! Among other things I'm a Chicken Qabalist. I don't worry about it. An adjustment in BS filters should do the trick, I don't even have to pay for that stuff.

    Holy crap, I was watching Radiohead on TMF (The Music Factory, owned by MTV, same fucking thing too. Easier when you own the 'competition'.) and they're airing a live Radiohead concert which is very rare, obviously. I mean they have all these great reality shows to choose from :p.
    The tunes start skipping and Thom Yorke is frozen on TV.
    Image fades to black.
    And this product A Simple Plan comes on the damn idiot box instead.
    BLASPHEMY! Is that bad? Hell no! You're a Chicken Qabalist! Don't worry about it.
    Cause there they are again, lol, they're playing Idioteque haha.
    And right after that one Everything in its right place (again :p).
    Gotta love it.

    The Chicken Qabalah

    Lon Milo Duquette's The Chicken Qabalah of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford: Dilettante's Guide to What You Do and Do Not Know to Become a Qabalist.

    Understanding Qabalah (an ancient Jewish form of mysticism combining numerology, sacred geometry, and about three dozen other disciplines) is the key to making sense of most Western magick (and most Western magicians, for that matter). But the subject can be overwhelming and intimidating for newbies. Fortunately, Lon has applied his ample knowledge and more-than-ample sense of humor to the task of helping such newbies get past that big first step. As one reviewer put it, "I laughed until I was enlightened." Enjoy.

    The earlier posted Ten Command-Rants are from this book too. Which you can download here. Is that wrong? Hell no! You're a Chicken Qabalist! Don't worry about it.

    The age of the rage: why are we so angry?

    Check out this article on TimesOnline (Thanks Technoccult), this is from the Women's section, because men obviously don't need to read this. The article is ok, though it doesn't mention the media's influence once.

    Here are my additional tips to avoid rage:
    1. Your last act of rage will be destroying your television. Don't read the papers or magazines and avoid every kind of media, that includes the internet. In case you haven't noticed, movies show the hero kicking the ass of anyone dumb enough to stand in their way or say something they don't like, television soaps show you how you can react like an idiot to anything the people around you do (loved ones? really? Oh right, at *insert product donation day here* where you show your love with your wallet, you know that's the black thing that has replaced the heart). I also dare you to count the negative suggestions/dumbass behaviour in the next comedy you watch. Humans learn by example. I repeat, humans learn by example.
    2. To avoid road rage, don't drive your car, studies have shown that people are fucking stupid on the road. They have never learned to drive properly because there is nowhere to learn it, they won't use their turn signal (their what?), drive as fast or slow as they please, they will turn into a street in slow-motion mode because of the terrorists behind the corner and will become your worst nightmare if you get into their way (I mean assumptions). After all, the car commercial shows an open road, studies have shown that traffic jam ads do not sell well. In general, reality doesn't sell, that's why illusionary BS rules this world and we have reached a time where normal vegetables cost extra and need a BIO-prefix.
    3. To avoid general rage in this era, keep away from what is known on this planet as humans, homo sapiens, this domesticated primate has been conditioned their entire life to believe his/her skin color is the only good one, his/her job/standing the most respectable, his/her religion/ideology is truth, his/her opinions are the only correct ones, and so on.
    On top of that the general domesticated primate has learned that through language they can lie as hell and to nevermind the incongruent body language screaming hipocrisy, not only that but most models have been fitted with low self esteem (first the original sin, now the meaningless of a mechanical universe) and a search light for RAGE opportunity when challenged in conversation or otherwise and make no mistake, they have the moral right and duty to act! (*cough* insert US foreign policy metaphor here *cough*). Either you're with me, or against me! I'll take on all six billion!
    Always remember, to the domesticated primate a different view means you're moving in front of and pissing on their window, not making it brighter & bigger or anything. It's their window, leave it the fuck alone. Though not all is glum, occasionally you get along with one, at which time they will try share and transfer their grievances and enemies. Meme spreading! Only the good ones! How many times have you heard "what a great day, I did this and this happened and this." No it's what a fucking day, this shit and that shit... And if you try to better yourself in any way, keep it to yourself, don't even show it - cause they hate people that think they're better than them, the nerve, who even comes close? And this, despite the low self esteem!
    4. Meditate with nature sounds in your ears, while meditating, you are not watching tv or any media, driving a car, or *shudder* meeting conditioned humans. I did warn you to use nature sounds, so you don't wanna kill your neighbors who will disturb you, if you expectantly wait for it to happen. Also, meditating aka shutting the inner dialogue up will calm you down. Btw, have you ever listened, I mean really payed attention, to your inner dialogue and the USELESS SHIT you torture yourself with everyday? How many conversations have you had with people who weren't there? How many times have you disrespected and yelled at yourself? How many great names do you call yourself on average daily? How many people have you had cussing matches with AFTER you left them saying anything but what you wanted to? Seriously. Stop talking to yourself, it makes you look stupid if you do it out loud, you don't want to be a covert idiot do you? (If you wanna take this even further and go really crazy, you could spice up that inner dialogue with some positivity - found in some books & music and online)
    5. Stay away from everything that your body can process:
    Ears: talk radio, shitty manufactured recycled product 'music', advertisements, the news, Eyes: TV, movies, magazines, internet disinfo, porn, news, ads, billboards are not designed to inform or entertain you, they are designed to mold & distract you directly and subliminally. Yes you have read this in point one.
    Mouth: Sugar, candy, soda, meat, caffeine, cigarettes, 'health' products. Marketed to make you happy & energized, designed to make you miserable & deplete you & your wallet. If you wanna eat healthy better not have any plastic around it, or did you think that chemical shit doesn't contaminate your food? Even your sweet Mary Jane will turn you into twice the asshole you usually are, the day after - until you smoke another, or two.
    Not to mention electrosmog (mmm cellphones), the polluted air, and all that other bullshit our wonderful dealers (leaders) have given us. Ah the wonderful matrix.

    Though please enjoy your stay on Planet Earth, don't take it too seriously (including this post), I heard all of this is illusion, it better be.

    "The only thing to fear, is fear itself."

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain.
    (From Frank Herbert's Dune)

    Fear is the Path to the Dark side.

    Fear leads to anger.
    Anger leads to hate.
    Hate... leads to suffering!

    Genesis P-Orridge: The Reversal of Fate

    All images begin in mirrors and end inside our subconscious. All conscious
    mirrors crack and cut; Seep blood and stain our dearest outfits. Sitting in one
    position, head crookedly balanced on our knee, the muscles tremble and
    shake involuntarily. We are left physically and mentally corrupted, nearer to
    the mortality we are trained to fear and ignore. To encase in the concrete
    of acceptance by our peers where it can do us no harm. In describing society,
    its behaviour, its grandiose stupidity, we can be motivated by compassion
    and despair coloured by not a little sarcasm and cynicism. Yet in every
    picture there is enervation and texture that rely upon a resented CARING for
    its composition. Framed by our own paranoias, framed by conditioning,
    framed by false witness and the theft of all pieces of silver, we kiss the
    cheek of the land that bites us. Receiving in return nothing. Butter nothing
    is why we came here, nothing is what we so awkwardly strive and fight for.
    Nothing is our very precise confrontation with form and reason. It's easy to
    forget nothing and hard to describe it. What was it the old slug breeder in
    the mud once said in a moment of lucidity:

    "The expression that there is nothing to express, nothing with which to
    express, nothing from which to express, no power to express, together with
    the obligation to express."

    Creative action, destructive action to express a perception of the weird
    phenomenon of being alive tries to illumine, clarify and describe some
    part(s) of human experience, it tends to achieve long-term relevance to
    individuals couming into contact with it by trying to grasp, or even form,
    the values that guide that experience in a given age, or in this case "SECTOR
    OF TIME". And whilst "Time is that which ends" culture, for better or worse,
    it is that which does not. And thereby lies the endless trick. Unlearned and
    unsung, denying explanations, butter avidly seeking them. The mirror
    receives our staring gaze and we melt quite gently and sink away leaving a
    smoky, cloudy effect, like bleach spreading in water. To cleanse our guilt we
    must describe our fate, objective war zone correspondents using the aural
    language of everyday life to define our subject. Shattered or not our message
    remains neither fixed nor dogmatic, merely frozen moments of a deeply
    personal interior reflected outwards into every living room that hangs this
    sheet of magick upon its tatty wall. For a day, or forever, it makes no
    difference. True value never changes, it remains in the only real sense,
    constant, because only time has a constant value, and time is the medium of

    "Nothing is more real than Nothing"

    Human experience is, unfortunately, butter stimulatingly, the experience of
    nothing and the only reality it knows is the inability to interpret itself and
    its mythically inherited structure.

    After the accumulation of too much history we have lost our innocence, we
    cannot easily believe in any explanations. We describe rather than feel, we
    touch rather than explore, we lust rather than adore.

    So there you are...or were...

    "Once the fiction of one ‘reality’ dies as a concept, and the operational fact of ‘realities’ (plural) becomes generally recognized, we might all discover that human beings can actually live together without constantly making war over who has the ‘real reality’.

    Daily Dedroidify: The Antikythera Mechanism

    Daily Dedroidify
    : The Antikythera Mechanism

    The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient artifact believed to be an early clockwork mechanism. It was discovered in a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera, between Kythera and Crete, and has been dated to about 87 BC.

    The mechanism is the oldest known surviving geared mechanism, made from bronze in a wooden frame, and has puzzled and intrigued historians of science and technology since its discovery. The most commonly accepted theory of its function is that it was an analog computer designed to track the movements of heavenly objects.

    Recent working reconstructions of the device support this analysis. The device is all the more impressive for its use of a differential gear, which was previously believed to have been invented in the 16th century AD.

    Orange fever

    Check out the HUGE inverted pentagon on the Dutch jerseys who have beaten Italy and France, two other main contenders for the championship, hard. This pic doesn't do it justice but it's the best I could find (google images SUCKS :p), on TV the thing looks huge. Before Euro 2008 the jerseys featured a more arched pentagon or no symbol at all. The supporters club also sports an upright pentagon. I wonder if the orange synchromystic flow in the ether I'm sure some of you have been following, along with powerful symbolism hasn't already ensured their finals victory.

    COINTELPRO: The FBI's War on Black America

    COINTELPRO: The FBI's War on Black America

    This docu uses some of the footage used in the earlier posted MLK docu. Through a secret & illegal program called the Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO), there was a concerted effort to subvert the will of the people to avoid the rise "of a black Messiah" that would mobilize the African-American community into a meaningful political force. This documentary establishes historical perspective on the measures initiated by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI which aimed to discredit black political figures and forces of the late 1960's and early 1970's. Combining declassified documents, interviews, rare footage and exhaustive research, it investigates the government's role in the assassinations of Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, and Martin Luther King Jr. Were the murders the result of this concerted effort to avoid "a black Messiah"?

    Paul Stamets: 6 ways mushrooms can save the world

    Paul Stamets: 6 ways mushrooms can save the world

    From the Tedtalks site: Entrepreneurial mycologist Paul Stamets seeks to rescue the study of mushrooms from forest gourmets and psychedelic warlords (warlords? :p). The focus of Stamets' research is the Northwest's native fungal genome, mycelium, but along the way he has filed 22 patents for mushroom-related technologies, including pesticidal fungi that trick insects into eating them, and mushrooms that can break down the neurotoxins used in nerve gas.

    There are cosmic implications as well. Stamets believes we could terraform other worlds in our galaxy by sowing a mix of fungal spores and other seeds to create an ecological footprint on a new planet.

    "Once you’ve heard 'renaissance mycologist' Paul Stamets talk about mushrooms, you'll never look at the world -- not to mention your backyard -- in the same way again."

    Bill Maher's 'Religulous' — Trailer

    Bill Maher's 'Religulous' — Trailer Released

    Religious is is a documentary directed by Larry Charles (of Borat fame) and stars American comedian Bill Maher, host of Real Time With Bill Maher on HBO. According to Maher, the title of the film is a portmanteau derived from the words "religion" and "ridiculous", implying the satirical nature of the documentary that is meant to mock the concept of religion and the problems it brings about.

    Known for his stance against religion, Bill Maher's views on the various world religions are explored as he travels to numerous religious destinations, such as Jerusalem and the Vatican, interviewing believers from a variety of backgrounds and groups, including Jews for Jesus, Muslims, polygamists, Satanists, Hasidic scholars and even Rael of the Raelian Movement. In the trailer and documentary Maher also interviews research neuroscientist Andrew Newberg, MD, (author of Why We Believe What We Believe) who brain-scans people at the University of Pennyslvania as they pray, meditate and speak in tongues. The documentary was produced by Thousand Words and is being distributed by Lionsgate. Originally slated for intentional release date coinciding with the religious Easter holiday 2008, post-production delays resulting from a screenwriters guild strike pushed the release date back to July 11, 2008. Release has now been pushed back to October 3, 2008.

    Though it will probably be funny, it's easy money for Bill Maher, who refuses to take on real controversy, or he'd lose his job again. lol.

    The Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

    The Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

    This documentary shows how the American media portrayed MLK in the media, and how the FBI through its illegal and covert COINTELPRO demonized social activists as communist infiltrators, using intimidation, violence and murder. How the government used another coverup after the murder they committed, after MLK's Poor People Campaign for economic justice went too far for the authorities. In 2000, King was voted 6th in the Person of the Century poll by Time, when he was alive though, Time was demonizing him along with every other mainstream media outlet, though hey, how many brainwashed Americans remember that shit? King was also elected the third Greatest American of all time by the American public in a contest conducted by the Discovery Channel & AOL, yet during his life he was the enemy of all government, media and whites in general. Fucking hilarious. How is it that the USA doesn't spontaneously implode by its own hypocrisy?

    Forbidden Library: Censorship Quotes

    From ForbiddenLibrary.com: Banned and Challenged Books: Censorship Quotes

    "If your library is not 'unsafe', it probably isn't doing its job."
    -- John Berry, Iii, Library Journal, October 1999

    "Without free speech no search for truth is possible... no discovery of truth is useful... Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race."
    -- Charles Bradlaugh

    "There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. "
    -- Joseph Alexandrovitch Brodsky, 1991, Russian-American poet, b. St. Petersburg and exiled 1972 (1940-1996)

    "Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage."
    -- Winston Churchill

    "You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police. Yet in their hearts there is unspoken - unspeakable! - fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse - a little tiny mouse! -of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic."
    -- Winston Churchill

    "The fact is that censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion..."
    -- Henry Steel Commager

    "Burning is no answer."
    -- Camille Desmoulins' reply to Robespierre, January 7, 1794, on burning his newspaper, Le Vieux Cordelier

    "If librarianship is the connecting of people to ideas – and I believe that is the truest definition of what we do – it is crucial to remember that we must keep and make available, not just good ideas and noble ideas, but bad ideas, silly ideas, and yes, even dangerous or wicked ideas."
    -- Graceanne A. Decandido

    "Don't join the book burners. Don't think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed."
    -- Dwight D. Eisenhower, speech at Dartmouth College, June 14, 1953

    -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

    -- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

    "If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed."
    -- Benjamin Franklin, 1730

    "Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. The source of better ideas is wisdom. The surest path to wisdom is a liberal education."
    -- Alfred Whitney Griswold, Essays on Education

    "[O]ne man's vulgarity is another's lyric."
    -- John Marshall Harlan, Supreme Court justice, 1971

    "Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings."

    "I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions."
    -- Lillian Hellman, subpoenaed to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee, 1952

    "To prohibit the reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves."
    -- Claude Adrien Helvetius, De l'Homme, Vol. I, sec. 4

    "The sooner we all learn to make a decision between disapproval and censorship, the better off society will be... Censorship cannot get at the real evil, and it is an evil in itself."
    -- Granville Hicks (1901-1982)

    "Fear of corrupting the mind of the younger generation is the loftiest form of cowardice."
    -- Holbrook Jackson

    "Civil government cannot let any group ride roughshod over others simply because their consciences tell them to do so."
    -- Robert H. Jackson
