Ken Wilber: Integral "Third Way" Politics


Ken Wilber: Integral "Third Way" Politics

Thanks Integral Praxis & TechnOccult

D'oh!

More than meets the eye!

The authorities have to do something to save us from that pesky 2D terrorism! :p

I love the shirt, reminds me of No Use for a Name's lyric: You can't spell "believe" without "lie".

William Cooper & his Death


William Cooper & his Death part 1 & the rest

I recommend this series as an intro to Cooper's work, as it was an intro for me too, I'll be checking a little more of his work soon. As with exploring any info one hasn't come across before, more questions are raised than answers given. But we can only get smarter from it. Unfortunately this is conspiracy research and several topics really make me wonder, but that's what's fascinating about it. Imagine if we started investigating everything and we were done in a few months :p, boring! Hehe. From what I've seen online (yesterday :p) it doesn't seem the driver shot JFK (only handled shortly in the vids). It's incredible again how many 'conspiracy researchers' are on the CIA payroll, someties you wonder if they all aren't? ;p. Though I think it's safe to say, the ones that get shot had something interesting to say, especially when the news coverage of his death is such BS.

"By making these broadcasts I have sealed my fate."

"I believe this, I found this to be true, if you're not walking on a razorblade you're really living in a kind of death existence. You have to have that danger facing you that if I slip I'm dead, that's what makes you live, that's what gives you life. That's what gives you purpose and I sincerely believe that any man or woman who does not have principles for which they're ready and willing to die for at any given moment that they're called upon to do that is already dead and are of no use or consequence to themselves or anyone else and will be unhappy throughout their life for that very reason and that reason alone."
William Cooper

Everything is one, Everyone is one, All is one

You are every thing, every being, every emotion, every situation. You are unity, You are infinity.
You are love/light, light/love. You are.

"He is enlightened, liberated, who sees all things as One - Unseparated."
Angelus Silesius"

"All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else."
Buddha

Defining, confining, controlling... and we're sinking deeper!

"Throughout the universe there's a network of wires stretching to infinity. The horizontal wires are placed in space; the vertical in time. Everywhere where these wires cross eachother, there's an individual. And every individual is a crystal bead. The big light of an Absolute Being enlightens and penetrates each crystal bead. And every crystal bead reflects not only the light of all other crystals in the network, but also every other reflection, from all corners of the Cosmos."
The Rigveda - Indra's Net

Dr. George W. Crile, of the Cleveland Laboratories announced that he had disovered at the heart of every living organism a tiny nucleus of energy, all aglow, with temperatures ranging from 3000 to 6000 degrees of heat, which he called "radiogens" or "hot points" precisely akin to the radiant energy of solar matter. He affirmed, that a tiny particle of the sun's power and radiance was lodged within the heart of every organic unit.

"Photons come out of nowhere, they cannot be stored, they can barely be pinned down in time, and they have no home in space whatsoever. That is, light occupies no volume and has no mass. The similarity between a thought and a photon is very deep. Both are born in the region beyond space and time where nature controls all processes in that void which is full of creative intelligence."
Deepak Chopra

"Never give children a chance of imagining that anything exists in isolation. Make it plain from the very beginning that all living is relationship. Show them relationships in the woods, in the fields, in the ponds and streams, in the village and in the country around it. Rub it in."
Aldous Huxley, Island

The Butterfly Effect: The phrase refers to the idea that a butterfly's wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that ultimately cause a tornado to appear (or, for that matter, prevent a tornado from appearing). The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale phenomena. Had the butterfly not flapped its wings, the trajectory of the system might have been vastly different. Hence everything is interconnected.

Now we are one in everlasting peace!

For that which happens to the sons of men happens to animals. Even one thing happens to them: As the one dies, so the other dies. Yes, they have all one spirit; and man has no pre-eminence over the animals: for all is vanity.

"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us."
Black Elk, Oglala Sioux

"He who has seen present things has seen all, both everything which has taken place from all eternity and everything which will be for time without end; for all things are of one kin and of one form."
Marcus Aurelius

"Everything is right for me, which is right for you, O Universe. Nothing for me is too early or too late, which comes in due time for you. Everything is fruit to me which your seasons bring, O Nature. From you are all things, in you are all things, to you all things return."
Marcus Aurelius

"The day of days, the great day of the feast of life, is that in which the inward eye opens to the Unity in things, to the omnipresence of law; -- sees that what is must be, and ought to be, or is the best. This beatitude dips from on high down on us, and we see. It is not in us so much as we are in it."
Ralph Waldo Emerson (fate)

"So to describe myself in a scientific way, I must also describe my surroundings, which is a clumsy way getting around to the realization that you are the entire universe."
Alan Watts

"So then, the relationship of self to other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined as other than yourself."
Alan Watts

"So what I think we could aim for in the way of human civilization and culture would be a system in which we are all highly aware of our existing interconnection and unity with the whole domain of nature, and therefore do not have to go to all sorts of wild extremes to find that union."
Alan Watts

"Underneath the superficial self, which pays attention to this and that, there is another self more really us than I. And the more you become aware of the unknown self, if you become aware of it,
the more you realize that it is inseparably connected with everything else that is."
Alan Watts

"This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does it to himself."
Chief Seattle

"No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee."
John Donne

"When Euclid was inventing his geometry, which has become the basis for man-made forms, the Greek reason was already corrupted by Aristotle's analytical and classificatory approach to the world. With Socrates and Plato the Greek world is still held in unity and harmony. With Aristotle, we begin to divide and chop and atomize - put things into separate compartments, where they are identified by special labels called definitions. Euclid and his geometry only reinforces the tendency to atomism, separatism, thinking in neat logical categories--here are the axioms, here are the rules of derivation, here are the theorems derived from the axioms through the accepted rules of derivation. All very neatly and rigorously defined. A triumph of the rational Western mind which is going to depend so much on the power of formal reasoning, on the meaning of axioms which will become the ultimate bricks out of which other things are to be constructed."
Henryk Skolimowski

"I’m one of those crazy people who believes that all human beings share one consciousness. So if you‘re mean and evil to someone, you’re being evil to yourself. But I also believe in a lot of dumb shit like Bigfoot and UFO’s, so it’s tough to take me seriously. I just find it a little odd that the same government that denies the existence of UFO’s insists on sticking to the single bullet theory."
Joe Rogan

"Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death. Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves."
Bill Hicks
