Incredible pictures of one of Earth's last uncontacted tribes firing bows and arrows

Daily Mail: It is extraordinary to think that, in 2008, there remain about a hundred groups of people, scattered over the Earth, who know nothing of our world and we nothing of theirs, save a handful of brief encounters. (update: 1, 2)

The uncontacted tribes, which are located in the jungles of South America, New Guinea and a remote and the beautiful and remote North Sentinel island in the Indian Ocean all have one thing in common - they want to be left alone.

And for good reason. The history of contact, between indigenous tribes and the outside world, has always been an unhappy one.

Contact is usually a disaster for these remote tribespeople, who live a life probably unchanged for more than 10,000 years. Even if the loggers do not shoot them (which they often do) or force them off their land, diseases against which these isolated humans have no resistance typically wipe out half an uncontacted tribe's numbers in a year or two.

Ms Ross added: 'These pictures are further evidence that uncontacted tribes really do exist. The world needs to wake up to this, and ensure that their territory is protected in accordance with international law. Otherwise, they will soon be made extinct.'

Severe Visibility Trailer

Severe Visibility is the story of Major Stanley Kruter, an accountant working at the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001.

On Sept. 11 2001, Los Angeles filmmaker Paul Cross was doing post- production work in Washington DC when he heard about the "terrorist" attack. He visited the crash-site five hours after impact and could plainly see the official story was a lie.

"There was no passenger jet wreckage; the lawn wasn't scorched; lamp posts, fences and construction materials in the path of the jet were untouched." Cross told me. "If this was a hoax, then the attack on the World Trade Center was also a hoax."

Cross, 45, characterizes his pre-9-11 self as a "flag- waving patriot" who "voted Republican all my life."

He was crushed. "I love my country. I was in mourning for weeks, literally in tears for what has become of this country." Rense Article

[Btw I got this from myspace, which blows. Myspace Bulletins insert an automatic blank line after each point, after each reposting, which ensures crap lay-out. And today, replying to a poster or reposting a bulletin can only be done by copying the source code of a bulletin, because when your reply window is done loading, you'll see you're replying to a different bulletin lol. Not to mention all links are encoded. Congratulations Murdoch's minions.]

We've been goofing around on this blog for too long, so it's time to get freaking serious! I posted this cause I learned about androgony from my synchromystic buddies. And am opening up to it for the first time. So join me, in loosening BS filters, take this stuff and your gender lightly, why so serious? Remember when I said back to normal yesterday, haha there's no such thing.

A transcendent seraphim radiating light and creativity, a horrid abomination of darkness wallowing in wickedness, or some unnatural merger of the two. The status of this enigmatic visual artist is still up for debate.

Friday Venus/Frige's Day

The name Friday comes from the Old English frigedæg, meaning the day of Frige the Anglo-Saxon form of Frigg, a West Germanic translation of Latin dies Veneris, "day (of the planet) Venus." However, in most Germanic languages the day is named after Freyja—such as Frīatag in Old High German, Freitag in Modern German, Freyjudagr in Old Norse,Föstudagur in Icelandic, Vrijdag in Dutch, Fredag in Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish—but Freyja and Frigg are frequently identified with each other.

The word for Friday in most Romance languages is derived from Latin dies Veneris, "day (of the planet) Venus" (a translation of Greek Aphrodites hemera) such as vendredi in French, venerdì in Italian, viernes in Spanish, and vineri in Romanian. In most of the Indian languages, Friday is Shukravar (or a derived variation of Sukravar), named for Shukra, the Sanskrit name of the planet Venus. Russian uses an ordinal number for this day of the week-- piatnítsa, meaning "fifth." Similarly, the Portuguese is sexta-feira, the sixth day.

Next month there is a friday the thirteenth, on that day I have a job interview at the center for Speech and Language Therapy/Pathology in my town (the US needs a more negative name! :p).
13 is considered lucky and unlucky depending where and who you ask, those who consider it unlucky are not really in the 'conspiratorial know' as some say, you might for instance wanna check out how many groupings of 13 you find on the dollar bill. [13 original colonies, 13 signers of the Declaration of Independence, 13 stripes on our flag, 13 steps on the Pyramid, 13 letters in the Latin above, 13 letters in "E Pluribus Unum", 13 stars above the Eagle, 13 plumes of feathers on each span of the Eagle's wing, 13 bars on that shield, 13 leaves on the olive branch, 13 fruits, and if you look closely, 13 arrows.] The authorities have since taken action to ensure the little people know the 'right' meaning, even the kids. (some fun quotes: "No one knows for certain what the symbols mean" - lol, "The pyramid is UN-capped", lovely subliminal, United nations capped? :p - to UNdo something, like the USA? :p). It's also the number of circles, or "nodes", that make up Metatron's Cube. There are 12 members (apostles) of the zodiac along with the Sun (son of god), making 13. Etc.

Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

In this vid, there's a hellish scene and a female devil. The 'devil', Lucifer is the Light Bearer. So is Venus: "The little sun in which the solar orb stores his light." HPB.
The word “lightbearer” in its literal sense means he who bears the light. It is synonymous with a person who searches for knowledge and enlightenment and who in so doing seeks to bring it to mankind. It is in this pure and beautiful sense of the word that “lightbearer” has been used in the name of the Lightbearers Organization and as a reference to Baron Eugene Fersen. In astronomy, Venus is known as the Lightbearer - the Morning Star - because it rises on the early morning horizon heralding the sunrise.

Circuit 5 Neurosomatic Hedonic Ecstacy, Venus, god of love, sexual ecstacy. Venus in astrology. In tarot, the Empress. When I do tarot readings, my starting card always seems to depict the phase I'm in now, the Empress was a long one, where I let my new learnings grow in my subconscious so to speak. I've been in the Knight of Cups for months and months now, suggesting that I get off my ass and be creative. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try and cook something up, I mean people will buy anything right? ;p Hehe. I'll post more about my tarot adventures sometime.

Chinese Astrology part 2

Well I had some fun with the Rooster chapter, there are some spot on observances, some good qualities I can easily convince myself to accept. But when she goes into more detail with '5 element' roosters, Suzanna White totally fubars it up lol - by which I mean, I don't recognize myself in any one of those profiles. I know individual (western) astrological profiles are much more detailed from experience. Even though there are still some errors in there cause you know, you can't get everything right with 'cold reading' like stuff - or - if you wanna take it more seriously, life shapes you too, I have to say a lot of stuff in profiles is uncannily accurate. I even checked out some profiles for friends and holy crap that's just creepy sometimes. (But then again, I remember Derren Brown's stunt where he gives loads of people an astrology profile, and most of them say it's at least 80% correct - and it turns out it's all the same profile ;p. But on the other hand, when I read profiles other than my own in psychological types or astrology they're totally wrong.)
I really love stuff like this, it always helps me become a better person wether it's astrology or Myers-Briggs psychological types. I highly recommend an exercise like this. But don't learn any new problems ;p. That doesn't mean ignore the negative aspects of a profile but learn to transmute them.
This is a hard comparison, but I once knew a lady with ADHD, and she had every problem "in the book." She knew 'em by heart, and was perfectly able to learn new problems when somebody told her she made a mistake. The perfect citizen for authorities :p. Some people claim that ADHD isn't even a condition, as for kids for instance, it isn't freaking unusual to not be able to sit still in a classroom for nearly an entire day. I'm not sure about that cause this lady was f'd up bad, I mean really bad, she could barely take care of her kid, let alone herself. But wether it was a psychological disposition or condition, or just a skewed belief system by "health professionals" I don't know.
I tried helping her with NLP (reprogramming or reframing associations) but after one session - which she really liked and was optimistic about, I had to go to Thailand and - out of sight, out of mind - she dropped from the Earth and didn't answer my mail or text so hey, all the best to her and another sign that alternative health wasn't for me. I think for her like for many unfortunate others: the comfort zone > the unknown.

Daily Dedroidify: Hmmm

I saw a man upon the stair
A little man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today -
Gee, I wish he'd go away!
