Technoccult TV: Antero Alli, pt. 1
Technoccult TV talks with Antero Alli about paratheater, his films, the 8 circuit model of consciousness, and his plans for the future.
And of course, you can see him give a presentation on the 8 circuit model this October at Esozone in Portland.
Special thanks to: Chris Cloke, Bill Whitcomb, and Trevor Blake.
She felt like she was taking off. She saw colors. Then it felt like her heart was ripping open.
But she called the experience joyful as well as painful, and says that it has helped her to this day.
"I feel more centered in who I am and what I'm doing," said Osborn, now 66, of Providence, R.I. "I don't seem to have those self-doubts like I used to have. I feel much more grounded (and feel that) we are all connected."
Scientists reported Tuesday that when they surveyed volunteers 14 months after they took the drug, most said they were still feeling and behaving better because of the experience.
Two-thirds of them also said the drug had produced one of the five most spiritually significant experiences they'd ever had.
The drug, psilocybin, is found in so-called "magic mushrooms." It's illegal, but it has been used in religious ceremonies for centuries.

When we bit the apple, we ate the lies that came with knowledge. Now that lie lives in us, the mind is fertile ground for concepts & opinions. The lie takes root in our minds, there it can grow big and strong just like a tree. So we produce a big tree of knowledge in our head, which is everything that we know. But what is it that we know? Mostly lies.
After we ate the fruit we judged ourselves as no longer good enough, and of course we judged others too. With judgement came guilt and shame and the need to punish and be punished. And we no longer respected and loved all of creation. We no longer believed that God was loving and just, we believed that God would punish and hurt us, it was a lie - but we believed it and we separated from God.
From this point it's easy to understand what's meant by original sin, it's not sex, no that's another lie. The original sin is to believe the lies that come from the snake in the tree, the meaning of the word sin is "to go against." To sin is not about blame or moral condemnation. To sin is to believe in lies and to use these lies against ourselves, from these lies all other sins are born.
Loosely adapted from "Don Miguel Ruiz - The Voice of Knowledge."

"The creation of life and that is within in it was created without being sinful... yet the church instills in it's believers that we are all sinners... To believe we are sinners... goes against what creation was all about..."

"Those who regularly navigate the hyperspatial landscape that some have called the ‘tryptamine dimension’ have long suspected that the portals to inner and outer space may be one and the same. This book, a collaboration of the most cutting-edge shaman / neuroscientists working in this field, boldly explores this concept in a stunning tour de force."

go for direct experience. What do you think when you face the waterfall?"
Check out these meaningful chapter titles: God as the beginning, I am god, god out there, god as her/him/it, god as the group, god as orgasm and sex, god as death, god as drugs, god as the body, god as money, god as righteous wrath, god as compassion, god as war, god as science, god as mystery, god as the belief, the simulation, the model, god as the computer, god simulating himself, god as consciousness without an object, god as humor, god as superspace, the ultimate collapse into the black hole, the end, the ultimate simulation, god as the dyad.
"What I wish to do in this book is to give you enough samples to learn your own simulations of God, understand your own system of belief, and find out what is most important to you within yourself..." John C. Lilly, M.D.
Belief System: In a given person a belief system is that conscious/unconscious set of basic beliefs, assumptions, axioms, biases/prejudices, models, simulations which determine, at a given instant, decisions, actions, thoughts, feelings, motives and the sense of the real and the true.
A given person usually has several belief systems, which may or may not overlap, may or may not generate paradoxes, agree/contradict, control/be controlled by one another, be arranged/dissaranged, logical/illogical, be fixed/shifting.
From 'I am God':
The belief largely still held in the field of science - and by the community at large - is that on this planet man - the human scientist - is at the top of the heap - this with no investigation of the criteria on which this opinion is based. Such defenses, as "Well, if these other animals are so great, why aren't they building the way we're building?" put one's self in the "I am God" position where science, knowledge, and the other species are concerned.
"What I do, then, is the be-all and end-all on this planet. I have demonstrated this because I can destroy the others. In fact, now I have the capability of destroying everything on this planet, including the planet itself; therefore, I must be at the top of the pyramid of development. Therefore, the others are my prey and I am justified in killing them for purposes of my industries, my survival, or my warfare."
In this sense, then, the "I am God" position denies that there is any such thing as an essense, that there is any such entity. It denies that there is any connection between us and the other species; it denies that there is a any connection between us and the rest of the universe; it denies that there is a "God"; it denies that here is a Star Maker who has any knowledge of what humans do. This in a sense is the existential position, without religion and without the kinds of experiences about which I and others have written. In other words, in order to make one's self God in the sense of he who controls our planet, with nuclear power, chemical and biological warfare, and political means of exerting power within a very limited framework, one assumes God-like powers and believes there is nothing else but one's self and one's own species.
With this belief system, the be-all and end-all is humanity. There is nothing on the planet comparable to humanity. All other species are potential victims of the human species. There are no unknowns in communication with either these species or at-present-undiscovered species elsewhere in our galaxy. This view is quite as dogmatic and dangerous as the view of the Catholic Church during the inquisition, of the Mohammedans following Mohammed, of the hordes of Genghis Khan coming into Europe, or of Attila the Hun.
From 'God as him/her/it':
Of course one must examine very carefully the unconscious tape loops, the tape loops below one's level of awareness which could select who is to be his particular guru as God. In fact before seeking a guru, one should look to his motives. It may be that he is merely once again seeking a situation which he considers to be "ideal" - with mother or with mother and father or with a sibling. One's ideals generate what he considers to be virtuous behavior; it is wise to consider wether or not this "virtuous" behavior is really what one wants. One can behave for years in accordance with what he considers to be a virtuous mode, and then suddenly discover that the mode is anything but virtuous, that it is postulated not upon virtue but upon something else inside himself that he was unaware of. With the gain of proper experiences, a whole system of beliefs can fall apart and one may be left with a reconsideration of the whole basis of his total motivation and life-style.
If one wants to take the position of the Tao, he can say that these are learning opportunities which have been thrown his way as he followed the Way. One hears some Taoists saying, "Everything that happens is perfect as it happens: all lessons are to be learned as presented." In effect, this is saying that the spirtiual path is perfect of itself. This claim reminds me of a famous modern Tibetan spiritual leader who, when asked, "What is liberation?," said, "Liberation is freedom from the spiritual path."
From 'God as a group':
The galaxy itself may have groups that are watching and caring about what our groups are doing. It may also not. If we are going to project our patriarchal, and matriarchal, ideas onto the galaxy, we are probably going to make the same mistakes that we made in the past in regard to our planet. If we suspect that there are out there beings thousands of years ahead of our civilization who are going to rescue us from our own childish mistakes, we are probably setting ourselves up for a stunning surprise.
There are those who claim divine guidance and wish to pass messages on to the rest of us, messages derived from entities not human, from networks of communication not available to all of us, from direct personal contacts with other entities, spirits and guides way beyond anything that we have directly experiences on this planet. Such experiences have given rise to pronouncements about God; pronouncements about God Out There, pronouncements about God in Here, God as The Group, God as Her/Him/it.
We can see that in the future our regions of ignorance will be much larger than our regions of knowledge. We still do not know how, when, or where we are connected to other entities in this galaxy in terms of our modern science. We do not know how large a galactic group we are members of. Certain direct experiences I have had in isolation and others have had under similar circumstances seem to indicate that we are in contact with a much larger network than our current consensus science says we are. In this sense God as the Largest Group may extend far beyond our planet and even beyond our galaxy into the whole universe.
From 'God as the body':
...Once one has taken the spiritual path and achieved a certain experience with various far-out states of consciousness, he begins to expand his criteria of beauty into regions where, before they were almost forbidden. In these states of consciousness one's criteria are so expanded that anything and everything becomes beautiful and perfect. One pulls out of the human conditions and the necessity for survival of the physical being and moves into eternal spaces united with all other sentient beings throughout the universe. The impact of such experiences is so great that one's criteria of beauty or of sin and virtue are completely flipped. One goes through peculiar transformations in that what used to be considered beautiful expands to include many, many things that one might have considered ugly. Finally, the dichotomy "beauty and ugliness" disappears; one achieves a state of High Indifference in which he realizes that bliss does not come from the outside world, it comes from within. One elicits his own bliss, he elicits bliss in others. He realizes his own eternal nature and hence is no longer quite so subject to the survival programs of the biocomputer.
God as the Body disappears. One is no longer subject to the same kinds of programming that he was previously. The body is now part of a more immense God whose vastness encompasses the whole universe and all of one's higher states of consciousness. For example, in the old belief system of God as the Body, one's own death was unjust, catastrophic, a complete disaster. With the new belief system, death is merely a transition form, a change in state of oneself, a change in a state of being, a change of consciousness into a new, more expanded state, highly desirable and not as restricting as the state of consciousness which was tied to a body. Once can leave the body with joy, with a sense of completeness of his planetside trip, and go to whatever it is that one goes on to. God as Death is also gone.
From 'God as money':
For many people the possession of money is equated with God. The belief "God is money: money is God" is a powerful determinant of behavior in our Western society. According to the usual social criteria, the misuse of money by private individuals and by public officials is the list of sins against this God. Those who blatantly steal money without surrounding their theft with all sorts of legal safeguards, are subject to the severest penalties. Those who know how to obtain large amounts of money and who can hire sufficiently powerful law firms who in turn can influence the judges, can make a very subtle priest-like game out of playing with their God.
Public officials in charge of grants, of disbursement of government funds and of the collection of government taxes, similarly are priests in the church of this God. The taxation authorities have the power to examine the personal life of any individual citizen or of any corporation to find any heresies that have developed in the worship of this God. Rules for the worship of money as God are quite stringent and specific, like any of the litanies, rituals and belief systems of any church that has appeared in the Western wrodl. The new inquisition has powers of jailing (practically for life) those who do not adhere to the proper rituals, litany and paper work necessitated by this God.
Certain new privileges appear that were not present at the lower levels of money flow. One now has the best possible advice from accounting, auditing and law firms. He has become a member of the "privileged priests" of the God of Money. One can now be in competition with the other priests or in confederation with the other priests. Publicly one acts as if he is in competition, whereas privately he acts in cooperation with the other priests. They advise him on how to reduce his taxes to a microscopic level; on how to put his money in trust for his offspring; and on how to keep a low profile for the public media. He is taught how to use the media in the service of the Money God.
Also from 'God as money':
Already we are disillusioned with fixed litanies, fixed rituals of churches. The new software, as opposed to that of old churches, is more flexible, more adaptive, and more interesting. Some spectacular things can be accomplished in the inner realities with the proper human software programming. Telling people how to do things inside their own heads is becoming a new industry in which fortunes are to be made.
Here are a few:
Some very Orthodox Jew refuse to speak Hebrew, believing it to be a language reserved only for the Prophets.
A South African monkey was once awarded a medal and promoted to the rank of corporal during World War I.
The Toltecs, Seventh-century native Mexicans, went into battle with wooden swords so as not to kill their enemies.
Pogonophobia is the fear of beards.
See the rest here.
Quite an imagination those ancestors of ours had.
Looks like the (endogenous DMT?) sightings started a little earlier than the 1940's :p Click the link to see more UFO Artwork through history with information on each work.

A page I started but never finished about Paraliminal & Binaural tech, Hypnosis and NLP. I'll try to fix that soon and will repost it then.
Here's an interesting text about hypnosis. For more on the above topics (but not that much or useful info, will try to add more soon), please click the article link.
How hypnosis got eclipsed in psychology:
"The young Sigmund Freud studied with Liebault and Bernheim at the Nancy School and initially used hypnosis in his practice. In the end, Freud stopped using hypnosis. The reason declared publicly was that a young female patient had jumped up and kissed him. Freud professed to be shocked and concluded that hypnosis was far too volatile to use. The little known history of hypnosis records a different reason why Freud stopped using hypnosis: his cocaine usage had ruined his gums, and his false teeth did not fit well, causing him not to speak well enough to induce trance easily.
In competition with an excellent hypnotist named Breuer, Freud invented 'talking therapy.' Freud said that his talking therapy would not be a therapy for the poor. It would take 100 to 300 hours to effect a cure. His talking therapy became psychoanalysis and this changed the history of European psychology. Freudian psychoanalysis became the rage in psychology and it became inappropriate to use any other techniques. Consequently, hypnosis was eclipsed."
From Tad James' Hypnosis: A Comprehensive Guide - Producing Deep Trance Phenomena
"All successful communication is hypnosis."
Milton H. Erickson
about NLP: "It's not a therapy group, it's a training session - if you want to go to therapy, well, we can recommend some therapists who are very reliable, why some of their clients have seen them for 20 and 30 years." :p
"I know this classified information may be hard to hear," Bush said. "But I urge each and every American to perform a covert search of his or her own soul. Join me in quiet self-examination and self-interrogation. Ferret out the terrorist inside you and bring him to harsh and swift justice. Together, we can topple the last major stronghold of terror in this world: our own doubts and fears."
Lol! I thought Missiles blew shit up! I wonder what the hell they have planned for 08.08.08, check out these interesting comments, with people on this planet so easily polarized, starting WW3 should be easy:
China set an excellent example for West.China is on a right track to arise,some China -hatred-filled guys are so poor-educated,they should learn more from China,and Chinese history.They should read Chinese books like Sunzi Tactics,and ancient Chinese historical stories,then they'll know China better
Donoghue , Lasa , Xizang (Please let us know where we can find that propaganda you speak of)
---"China...to crack down on its critics even harder than usual".
I'm eager to see how UK handle Muslim in 2012 Olympic. I often feel amazed at the double standard of West that, when fighting West, Muslim are terrorists but when making trouble to China, they suddenly become freedom fighter. LOL
hgao, Beijing, (lol good points, and good you have your excuses ready)
Exactly how are these missiles going to be used against a suicide bomber with an explosive belt? Possibly the Chinese are a little new to terrorism defence.
CA, Manchester, UK (by killing them and everyone around it. maybe a self-destruct button in the stadium would be more efficient!)
Western,watch and learn.
Han Runfeng, Baoding,Hebei Province, China (oeh, is he in the know? ;p)
Why bash China, have you ever been there?It has no democracy but neither do we in Europe, we have unelected bureaucrats running the EU and ignoring the people.Lets fix our own system and then we can advise other countries what they are doing wrong.
joe, Edinburgh, Scotland (How about we criticize all the crazy shit on this planet? Before it gets crazier?)
Hongqi-7 missiles....do they work ? I used to say about the USSR....don't be afraid if ever they have to fire their missiles or fly their combat aircraft....we have won right from the start. I always said if they fired a missiled the odds of it falling on their own heads were 99 to 1 !

[Wednesday]'s vote by Congress effectively gives retroactive immunity to the telecom companies and endorses an all-powerful president. It’s a Congressional coup against the Constitution.
The Democratic leadership is touting the deal as a "compromise," but in fact they have endorsed the infamous Nuremberg defense: "Just following orders." The judge can only check their paperwork. This cynical deal is a Democratic exercise in deceit and cowardice.

Alan Watt Rejects the Alien Agenda Disinformation
I'm not a big fan of Alan Watt concerning his thoughts on consciousness, but I kinda agree with what he's saying in this vid. Though who knows, what if he's not being completely truthful? I've heard him fear mongering and being ignorant if not spreading disinfo too. Sheesh :p What if everyone's disinfo? :p Only trust your own research, and even then!
I liked this quote from the youtube comments:
I actually had tsarions first book. In the end he tells you that we sould all help to strengthen the "earth energy field". The earth could then "in her own mysteries ways" defeat the aliens.
I thought "Instead of praying to jesus/the sun we are now praying to gaia/the earth. Instead of waiting for jesus to save us, we are now waiting for gaia to save us."
After i read that i threw his book into the garbage can and started to listen to Alan Watt.
Freeman Perspective: Anti-Christ, Olympics, & Schwarzenegger
Some interesting synchromysticism talk, like it is announced in the 33rd episode of the original Batman TV series that Bruce Wayne's grandfather was a founding member of Skull and Bones :p
The movie First Contact is inherently about Time Travel, isn't that interesting?
Well not so much for me, cause I freaking cringed when I remembered this about the movie, I just don't like time travel plots (just go back in time and try again if it doesn't work). But thanks to Synchromysticism, I even watched all Back to the Future's again, so here goes:
The movie starts zooming out Picard's Eye, and the poor baby has a bad dream about the Borg.
The admiral calls in and Picard is not allowed to help fight the Borg who are invading 'the federation space' ("Do you have a flag?" Eddie Izzard) because he used to be assimilated for a while and the Military Command at Starfleet didn't like that too much. They listen on the radio and hear their fleet losing against a Borg Cube close to Earth. Can't have none of that and they speed to Earth no matter what. No problemo really cause the Admiral's ship got blown up by the Borg anyway.
The Cube explodes thanks to Picard's collective unconscious link to the Borg which tells him a weakness to fire upon with the entire fleet. It works and a Borg Sphere catapults out of the Cube into a temporal wave and the Enterprise gets caught in this wave too. (The Enterprise gets caught in a temporal wave. A Timewave Enterprise? :p Maybe a Kali Yuga happening? The Secret plan. Remember Annuit Coeptis on the dollar bill? Which means He approves (or has approved) [our] undertakings, or Enterprise.)
The vortex is collapsing and they see Earth suddenly is Borg territory with 9 billion drones. So they follow the sphere back in time to undo the Borg's actions.
They destroy it asap. Hmmm, that's not a moon! That's a spacestation! And the Star Trek Death Star explodes close to earth in an initial greeny glow.
They go to Earth and help the people, some are hurt because of the short space battle.
"Please, no lectures about the prime directive, I'll keep her unconscious." says Dr Beverly Crusher to Captain Picard. It's possible a lot of galactic SHIT is because nobody gives a damn about the prime directive.
Hey whattaya know they find Dr. Zephyr Cochran, who invented warp drive, what are the odds.
Zephyr: 1. The west wind. A gentle breeze. 2. Any of various soft light fabrics, yarns, or garments. 3. Something that is airy, insubstantial, or passing.
"Fly away on my zephyr - I feel it more then ever - And in this perfect weather - Well find a place together - Fly on my wing - In the water where the scent of my emotion - All the world will pass me by - Fly away on my zephyr - We're gonna live forever - Forever" RHCP
Cochran: Locality. Cocrinn, Gaelic, a point or promontory in open sight; from Coc, manifest, plain, and rinn, a cape or promontory.
Or if you like to keep it more simple: THE COCK THAT RAN, and the Phallic Symbol Warp Rocket is called... the Phoenix, no shit, didn't see that coming!
"It is a historical irony that Dr. Cochran would choose an instrument of mass destruction to inaugurate an era of peace." Data
Hmm, Order out of chaos? You mean like Pearl Harbor/The two atom bombs to start the end of WW2? Or 9/11, 7/7 and 3/11 to bring about a New World Order? Or *insert numerous examples here* Yes, historical irony indeed.
When Picard and Data are bonding - picard talks to Data - who is evolving to become more human with his emo-chip - about how touching an object makes it seem more real - they rather disturbingly start stroking the rocket (phallic symbol)
Troy: Should I leave you three alone? :p
27.28 gratuitous eye in triangle shot. Woot!
Cochran toasts to the Phoenix with Troy:
"May she rest in peace." (the female cock (adrogyny?) will rise from the ashes anyway)
When a crew member who just got assimilated by the borg calls to Picard for help, he kills him out of mercy. It's also rather advised to not add another borg drone to the already infested ship.
The borg stopped assimilating the enterprise at deck 11. What is on deck 11?! asks Worf: Hydroponics! Stellar cartography, deflector control, all vital systems. Crap!
"They would not have stopped there until it gave them a tactical advantage!" Duh Worf.
Let's use the 8 Circuit model and see how these have been used throughout hisStory:
Hydroponics: Nourishment, Altered States of Consciousness (Circuit 1 & 5-8)
Stellar Cartography: Astrotheology crafting religions, submit + divide & conquer tools. (c1, 2 & 4)
Deflector Control: Language (Lies) (c3 and 1, 2 & 4 too to an extent)
And All Vital Systems: The economic, financial, political & other Cyst-ems (c1,2,3 & 4!)
Just throwing it out there.
Here's a fascinating conversation between Data, the Ship's Android (DOES THIS PICTURE MAKE ME LOOK LIKE CRUCIFIED JESUS/SOLAR REPRESENTATIVE?) and the Borg Queen:
Data: Who are you?
Queen: I am the borg.
Data: That is a contradiction, the borg has a collective consciousness, there are no individuals.
Queen: I am the beginning, the end, the one who is many... I am the borg.
Data: Greetings... (lol) I'm curious, do you control the borg collective?
Queen: You imply disparity where none exists, I am the collective.
Data: Perhaps I should rephrase the question, I wish to understand the organizational relationships. Are you their leader?
Queen: I bring order to chaos.
Data: An interesting if cryptic response.
Queen: You are in chaos Data, you are the contradiction, a machine who wishes to be human.
Data: Since you seem to know so much about me, you must be aware that I am programmed to evolve, to better myself.
Queen: We too are on a quest to better ourselves, evolving towards a state of perfection.
Data: Forgive me, but borg do not evolve, they conquer.
Queen: By assimilating other beings into our collective, we are bringing them closer to perfection.
Data: Somehow I question your motives.
Queen: That's because you haven't been properly stimulated yet.
Data: *acts weird* you have reactivated my emotion chip, why?
Queen: Don't be frightened.
Data: I'm not frightened.
Queen: Do you know what this is Data?
Data: It appears you are attempting to graft organic skin onto my endoskeleton structure.
Queen: What a cold description for such a beautiful gift. *blows on it softly*
*Data twists and turns*
Queen: Was that good for you?
Data: Ooh :p
Blowing back life into the crucified sun/son of god? Using it for your purposes? I dunno, I'm just an amateur folks.
Meanwhile Picard is on the Enterprise with a woman from the old Earth space time who escaped from Sickbay (why the hell not call it Healthbay or Healing bay or something) while the Borg were attacking there.
Woman: How much did this thing cost? (The Enterprise)
Picard: Economics of the future are somewhat different, you see money doesn't exist in the 24th century.
Woman: No money, you mean you don't get payed?
Picard: The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives, we work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity. (Sounds a lot like Jacque Fresco's The Venus Project!)
Later they encounter Borg and Picard and the woman go to a holodeck to trick them.
"Doubt that even a holographic bullet can kill!" says Picard about the reality of the illusion (or the illusion of reality) after he kills 2 borg on the holodeck with the safety protocols switched off. He rather enjoyed firing the machine gun and the woman had to calm him the f down. Chill out old man, they're dead, ok?
Geordi La Forge says to Cochran he's standing exactly where his statue was to be built, with him reaching out to the sky, Roman/Hitler salute like?
(don't forget the Pledge of Allegiance in the states used to use this too :p, and this link also talks about the borg, synchydoo! Check it out, it's good.) It's a military thang or sumsum.
Back to Data and the Queen. Btw if you happen to have thought of the Queen of England, good, I heard she's a crazy b* too.
Data to Borg Queen:
"Believing one's self to be perfect is often a sign of a delusional mind." (oh snap)
Then Data's skin gets hurt by the Borg and Data says:
"My programming was not designed to process these sensations!"
Were we humans designed to undergo all this BS we've had to cope with during the entire HisStory? (Considering possible genetic engineering origins that question is unintentionally tragically hilarious...)
The Borg are trying to convert the Enterprise to Borg technology and are outside building a beacon right on top of the Particle Emitter! That's not nice according to space etiquette, or so I've heard. Especially if the contraption has some sacred Stargate symbolism.
To get rid of the borg they'll have to release 3 mag(netic) locks, because shooting the particle emitter would be kinda stupid, wouldn't it? Not that I know what a particle emitter is.
Hey it's Tin Man (Neal McDonough, from the Sci-fi channel's reimagined Wizard of Oz mini-series called Tin Man) called Lieutenant Hawk here [btw, Lieutenant, is just someone 'holding tenants in place of' (lieu=place, french), oeh some title], he gets lifted up by a borg before being able to release his mag lock. Picard releases his magnetic boots and jumps across the Stargate floor, and releases the last mag lock and there go the borg and their device into space.
But Hawk, is turned into a borg (Tin Man, hellooo - plus he's not part of the original 'nine' (check my Enneads post here and I found this Atlantean Times post in the archives too) so you know he gonn' die) and tries to kill Picard but Worf shoots him into space and also shoots the borg device that was floating along.
"Assimilate this" says Worf with his Klingon whit and blasts it into pieces.
Thanks to Chris from Secret Sun for pointing out the solar struggle in the assimilation of Lt. Hawk. Hawk resonates with Horus and Ra, the Sun Gods (so does the falcon), so Hawk could be 'standing in' (remember lieutenant) for Riker (Ra-Horus resonator according to Chris) who's on the surface of Earth. And the Borg being a symbol of technocracy & the hive mind (the borg collective, the unimatrix) symbolizing the consensus reality illusion served to disway us from the 2012 solar sunspot activated stargate paradigm consciousness shift!?
Horus died from the sting of a Scorpion, the Borg have nanoprobes coming out of tubules from their hand, stinging the future assimilated ones like a Scorpion - same which happened to Lt. Hawk. 'Scorpion' was also a double episode of Star Trek Voyager where the crew had to work together with the Borg in Operation Scorpion to battle a new threat ("I couldn't help it," said the scorpion. "It's my nature."). The episodes introduced Seven of Nine into the series & Species 8472 (the threat, more about them later!).
Cochran meanwhile finally reveals the reason of his reluctance (and jackass-ness) towards the enterprise crew, he was motivated to build warp tech... for money. The unlikely hero...
Riker reacts by saying "someone once said 'don't try to be a great man, just be a man and let history make its own judgements.'" (sounds a lot like recent Neo-Con shit don't it?!)
Cochran: "Rethorical nonsense, who said that?"
Riker: "You did, ten years from now." Unpredictability isn't the movie's strong point.
Picard to contemporary woman: Six years ago they assimilated me into their collective, I had their cybernetic devices implanted throughout my body, i was linked to the hive mind, every trace of individuality erased, I was one of them, so you can imagine my dear I have a somewhat unique perspective on the borg and I know how to fight them. (this applies to all of you and our own 'borg' presence, the cybernetic devices can be the belief systems, 'medicins', 'vaccines' and products.)
Woman: It's simple, the borg hurt you and now you're gonna hurt them back. Captain Ahab has to go hunt his whale!
Picard: This is about saving the future of humanity!
Woman: Jean-Luc, blow up the damn ship!
Picard: No! Nooooooo! *breaks glass case with enterprise models*
(oops, wrong star saga! Again!)
Picard: I will not sacrifice 'the enterprise!' I've made too many comprimises already, too many retreats, they invade our space and we fall back, they assimilate entire worlds and we fall back, not again, the line must be drawn here, this far no further. I will make them pay for what they've done!
Woman: ...You broke your little ships, see you around Ahab.
Picard: "And he piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the rage and hate felt by his whole race. If his chest had been a cannon, he would have shot his heart upon it."
[The actual quote by Melville in Moby Dick reads,
"He piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart's shell upon it."]
Picard: Ahab's quest for vengeance in the end destroyed him and his ship.
Woman: I guess he didn't know when to quit...
Picard comes to his senses (he called Worf a coward, so you know he wasn't thinking straight!)
Prepare to evacuate the enterprise!
Crusher: so much for the Enterprise E (the fifth age). Do you think they'll build a new one?
Picard: Plenty of letters left in the alphabet.
Picard stands alone on the bridge like a true captain while the rest abandons ship, but through the borg collective unconscious assimilated Data calls to him.
Meanwhile, purely coincidental of course, on Earth the Phoenix Rises.
While the Triangle Exodus from the Enterprise is taking place. They look like coffins or sarcophaguses (or piano's :p) while departing from the enterprise.
Then the final battle takes place with Picard finding the Queen and Data.
Borg Queen to Picard: You can still hear our song.
Picard: I remember you, that ship and all the borg on it were destroyed!
Queen: You think in such 3 dimensional terms, how small you've become... (ouch! Where's our multidimensional awareness ppl? Activate Right-Brain practices!)
Quick skip back to the rising Phoenix:
"Sweet Jesus!" says Cochran as he sees the Enterprise maneuvres in front of the Sun (Jesus, Sun of God) from the Phoenix cockpit. I'm sure that stargate on the side is just sitting there for fun.
Geordi and Riker are joining Cochran on the first supposed Warp flight of human civilisation to make first contact with the Vulcans, the past steers the future as much as the future steers the past? Or has time travel always been connected with space travel? Extradimensionality?
Back to the end battle: Data rebels against the new Borg BS: "Resistance is futile!" and destroys a tube-thingy with a warp-vent-thingy (? :p) coming out of it, and Data drags the Queen away from Picard, into the warp-vent thingy and her skin can't take that stuff apparently.
I guess that means the system will have to be beaten from within, let's hope at least a few people already in the illuminati circles will finally choose bravery instead of cowardice.
The Queen has an endoskeleton skull & spine that resembles the one from terminator 3 or the Sarah Connor Chronicles, Picard snaps the spine in two and it powers off, kundalini broken.
Data: Strange, part of me is sorry she's dead
Picard: She's unique
Data: She brought me closer to humanity than I ever thought possible and for a time I was tempted by her offer.
Picard: How long a time?
Data: 0.68 seconds sir, for an android, that is nearly an eternity.
First contact is attained with the vulcans, their ship kinda looks like a Cylon base star (from new Battlestar Galactica). I heard the X is a solar symbol, so this could be the 'Secret' Sun descending, though I have no idea really.
"Live long and prosper." plus the handsign, (check out this origins link.)
Cochran gives him a handshake, "Thanks".
Picard: Mr. Data lay in a course for the 24th century, I suspect our future is there waiting for us.
Data: Course laid in sir.
Picard: Make it so!
Cochran turns on his ridiculous Scooby Dooby or whatever music to amuse the Vulcans (after all, music, vibration is all, or something) and the movie ends.
Coming soon: Species 8472!
There's no such thing as friends and enemies, these are imaginary concepts that actually don't describe anything.
An illustration of this point:
Katayana once saw a man sitting in front of his house, holding a small child in his lap, eating some fish and feeding the child, and throwing the bones on the ground. There was a dog that was trying to get the remaining fish flesh off the bones and the man was kicking the dog away cause it was bothering him.
When Katayana used his super-cognition to see what the karmic precedents of all this were, he realized that the child in the man's lap had in his previous life been that man's worst enemy, in other words that man's enemy in this life had died and been reborn as his child because of the karmic debt.
The fish that they were eating, was the father's father who had been reborn as a fish. And the dog that the man was kicking was his mother who had been reborn as a dog.
So Katayana said about this:
"He's eating his dad, he's kicking his mom, he's cuddling his worst enemy... there's no point what so ever to samsara."

Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree.
Brave men make good soldiers, but cowards make better strategists.
Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be wrong.
Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.
Genius is always allowed some leeway, once the hammer has been pried from its hands and the blood has been cleaned up.
He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards."
In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
As for The Mapp... I suspect it'll never get a US publication. It seemed to frighten US publishers. They don't seem to understand it. That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans:
A European says: I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?
An American says: I can't understand this, what's wrong with him?
I make no suggestion that one side or other is right, but observation over many years leads me to believe it is true.
Life doesn't happen in chapters— at least, not regular ones. Nor do movies. Homer didn't write in chapters. I can see what their purpose is in children's books ("I'll read to the end of the chapter, and then you must go to sleep") but I'm blessed if I know what function they serve in books for adults. (on the lack of chapters in DiscWorld books)
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
It's not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewere, would much rather you weren't doing.
Imagination, not intelligence, made us human.
Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.
Wikipedia, eh? Must be accurate then!
Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.
Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don't find out til too late that he's been playing with two queens all along.
Never trust any complicated cocktail that remains perfectly clear until the last ingredient goes in, and then immediately clouds.
I don't like the place at all. It's all wrong. An imposition on the Landscape. I reckon that Stonehenge was build by the contemporary equivalent of Microsoft, whereas Avebury was definitely an Apple circle.
Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.
Sometimes it is better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.
Sooner or later we're all someone's dog.
Taxation is just a sophisticated way of demanding money with menaces.
The intelligence of the creature known as a crowd, is the square root of the number of people in it.
The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
The truth may be out there, but lies are inside your head.
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.
Writing is the most fun you can have by yourself.
'They can ta'k our lives but they can never ta'k our freedom!' Now there's a battle cry not designed by a clear thinker...
Go on, prove me wrong. Destroy the fabric of the universe. See if I care.
Oh, come on. Revelation was a mushroom dream that belonged in the Apocrypha. The New Testament is basically about what happened when God got religion.
What your soldier wants-- really, really wants -- is no-one shooting back at him.
You can't trample infidels when you're a tortoise. I mean, all you could do is give them a meaningful look.
You can’t make people happy by law. If you said to a bunch of average people two hundred years ago “Would you be happy in a world where medical care is widely available, houses are clean, the world’s music and sights and foods can be brought into your home at small cost, travelling even 100 miles is easy, childbirth is generally not fatal to mother or child, you don’t have to die of dental abcesses and you don’t have to do what the squire tells you” they’d think you were talking about the New Jerusalem and say ‘yes’.
I think that sick people in Ankh-Morpork generally go to a vet. It's generally a better bet. There's more pressure on a vet to get it right. People say "it was god's will" when granny dies, but they get angry when they lose a cow.
Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil... prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...
I staggered into a Manchester bar late one night on a tour and the waitress said "You look as if you need a Screaming Orgasm". At the time this was the last thing on my mind...
I didn't go to university. Didn't even finish A-levels. But I have sympathy for those who did.
I must confess the the activities of the UK governments for the past couple of years have been watched with frank admiration and amazement by Lord Vetinari. Outright theft as a policy had never occurred to him.
Have a bit more patience with newbies. Of course some of them act dumb -- they're often students, for heaven's sake.
Too many people want to have written.
Suicide was against the law. Johnny had wondered why. It meant that if you missed, or the gas ran out, or the rope broke, you could get locked up in prison to show you that life was really very jolly and thoroughly worth living.
DiscWorld is based on a slew of old myths, which reach their most 'refined' form in Hindu mythology, which in turn of course derived from the original Star Trek episode 'Planet of Wobbly Rocks where the Security Guard Got Shot'.
They called themselves the Munrungs. It meant The People, or The True Human Beings.
It's what most people call themselves, to begin with. And then one day the tribe meets some other People or, if it's not been a good day, The Enemy. If only they'd think up a name like Some More True Human Beings, it'd save a lot of trouble later on.
You mean nothing becomes everything? Why, yes, sir. Er... in a way, it has to, sir. It could have been anything at all, sir. Even a stray thought. Absolute nothing is very unstable. It's so desperate to be something.
Magicians and scientists are, on the face of it, poles apart. Certainly, a group of people who often dress strangely, live in a world of their own, speak a specialized language and frequently make statements that appear to be in flagrant breach of common sense have nothing in common with a group of people who often dress strangely, speak a specialized language, live in ... er ...

Look, how about this: let's pretend we had the row and I've won, see. It saves a lot of effort... Now, are we going? (Isabella using some linguistic magic in Terry Pratchett's Mort :p)
Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders they have managed to invent boredom? Quite astonishing...(Death in The Hogfather)
You need to believe in things that aren't true, how else can they become? (Death in The Hogfather)
Humans need fantasy to be human, to be the place where the fallen angel meets the rising ape. (Death in The Hogfather)

Another cool moment when she said: "...the story of Bush,Bushna... Krishna Buddha... :p"
And this: Money and Je$u$
It's also in the Je$uit$ symbol.
Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard - but no Ark.
"Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"
"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah,
"'but things have changed I needed a building permit. I've been arguing with the inspector about the need for a sprinkler system.
My neighbors claim that I've violated the neighborhood zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding the height limitations We had to go to the Development Appeal Board for a decision
Then the Department of Transportation demanded a bond be posted for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the Ark's move to the sea I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it.
Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the spotted owl I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go.
When I started gathering the animals, an animal rights group sued me. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodations were too restrictive, and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space.
Then the EPA ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood.
I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew Immigration and Naturalization are checking the green-card status of most of the people who want to work.
The trades unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with Ark-building experience.
To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this Ark.
Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.
Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean you're not going to destroy the world?"
"No," said the Lord
"The government beat me to it."
(The 'Lord' being the same kind of BS divide & conquer device before the creature of representative government came into being...)

Early public reaction to the logo, as measured by a poll on the BBC website, was largely negative: more than 80% of votes gave the logo the lowest possible rating. Several newspapers have run their own logo competitions, displaying alternative submissions from their readers. It was widely commented that the logo resembles an image of the cartoon character Lisa Simpson performing fellatio and others have complained that it looks like a distorted Swastika (see below). (added: you can also spell Oz, obviozly.)
Olympic Logo also spells Zion
Zion(2102 rearranged or backwards)=2012 (equal value numerologically)
And more 3-legged Swastikas (triskelions) from this source:
This sign is associated with progress and competition and originated in ancient Greece, where it was used on coins.
Nowadays one can find on the coat of arms of the Isle of Man, the island between Great Britain and Ireland.
The Isle of Man is inhabited by Celts, and is related to , an early Celtic sign.
A similar structure, [same without hooks on the end], is used in electrical contexts to signify a certain type of transformer winding
Signs of this type are called triskelion, three-leg. This one is from a sheild that was used as a prize at competitions in Athens around 500 B.C.
This sign is the logo for Afrikaaner Weerstandsbeweging, a white organization in South Africa opposed to ending the policy of apartheid.
Compare with in Group 14.
The ancient structure has been found both in pre-Columbian America and in the Bronze Age Europe. In Europe it is especially associated with the Celtic tribes.
In this variation, , it appears in modern times in France as a sign for Jeune Bretagne, a separatist movement in the Celtic part of Bretagne.
The basic symbol is associated with migrations or independent movements of tribes or clans.
And some more of them
Also check out this huge Olympics symbolism post at Konkrete Junkyard, including a surprise (for me at least) about the main five rings logo.
Bonus if you find the 'hidden' word
me and a buddy thought of "suck it" at first glance but that's not it, lol!
