Mos Def :The Rape Over & Tupac about the Illuminati

Mos Def: The Rape Over (Jay-Z Take Over parody)

Me likes, here's some more conscious hip hop.

And here's Tupac about the "Illuminati" (I think Tupac is offering people a "winner script" to deal with the possibility of this): "
That's why I put the K to it, n*ggas is tellin me about this illuminati shit while I'm in jail, "the dollars ya'll." That's another way to keep your self esteem low, that's another way to keep you unconfident and I'm putting that K because I'm killing that Illuminati shit... Cause they all like "the pope.. and the money," Aww come on man, get the fuck outta here! You so thinking about the money, you're not getting the motherfucking money. Get the money n*gga I don't give a fuck who's face on there."
Tupac Shakur
From a perspective that's like profound wisdom 90s style hehe :p, anyone have a guess if this 7 day theory prankster is still alive?

Hidden Agendas: Alternative Researchers, 2012 Love Fest, & Progressive Clarity

Check out a great rant at Hidden Agendas: Alternative Researchers, 2012 Love Fest, & Progressive Clarity.

From reading the Egyptian Enneads, I initially see no extraterrestrial influence, I see a fucked up family, engaging mostly in incest, subjugating entire nations (start with one!) through ridiculous fucking belief and control systems. Masters at deception, but no convincing evidence for me that these are Extraterrestrials or 'Gods' (dimensionals). The Man behind the Curtain, is probably just an old geezer that you can bitchslap. If Satan is the symbol of the Lie, then these families are Legion, the one who is many. Divide & Conquer through belief, what if the biggest mystery in the beginning of civilisation was that some monkeys realized that you could lie your ass off with language? Though of course, it's possible there is an extraterrestrial/dimensional influence operative, I'll just need to have some proof before I accept it completely, until then, they will exist as many possible reality tunnels in my mind, so nothing gets filtered out or preferred.

Is 2012 a sedative or a catalyst for you? If it's a sedative drop it, if it's a catalyst all the better. But if 2012 is an excuse for you to not act in any way for what you think (not believe) is right, then I really think it's time for some self-evaluation. (Don't worry, you can lie to yourself all you want if you find that more comforting :p). Guess what, action is what got these people their power, not just thinking about it. So don't get me started on the law of attr(non-)action as a means of overcoming the system if by that you just mean thinking happy thoughts and not working towards your desired future.

"Oh foolish man, what won't you believe." Adam Weishaupt
Believe NO-THING.

The lizzies come up in hallucinogenic trips, but hey, loads of theriantropic creatures do. You're just as likely to run into a humanoid bee, a praying mantis or a fluffy bunny rabbit (I kid you not). This is your future they will tell you, for we are you in the future, consciousness mirroring itself. Wether these are other dimensions or just deep realms of human imagination nobody can say for certain yet, as these non-lineair spaces will need some more exploring for that.

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels with him."
Does this mean they're just gonna go underground bunker? :p

These alternative researchers are also highly suspect to me, there's not one I'll really vouch for. They contradict each other, accuse each other, and their conclusions should be considered just that, their conclusions.

However this doesn't mean I'm not open to the possibility of 2012, extraterrestrials/dimensionals or the researchers theories, otherwise I wouldn't explore and question them. I've had some very interesting experiences concerning consciousness which I have shared here, these include meditation, entheogenic, synchronistic and even divinatory experiences. My current catma's are very agnostic however as I find that to be the most sane way to move ahead.

I'll close off with two X-Files quotes:
I want to believe: the worst fucking quote in fiction (that includes religion) ever, this is worse than religion & ideology and their confirmation bias, this is wanting the confirmation bias!
Though on the other hand, it also could just imply 'keep seeking despite ridicule or whatever', they could have worded it better in that case.
Trust no one: Aah, much better, trust no one, not even yourself by which I mean continue to question your belief system periodically. Everyone, including you, can be potentially misled by hidden agendas, disinfo, misinfo, ignorance, fuzzy logic, confirmation bias, too much or too little skepticism towards a subject, etc etc. Remember, truth seeking is about seeking thé truth, not your truth by which I mean acquiring new beliefs based on earlier ones.

Question everything, replacing the exploring everything above. Since the datastream is more than corrupted, 'question' is much more appropriate I find. Thanks Michael!

Daily Dedroidify: Anger!

Daily Dedroidify: Anger. A while ago I completed my last of 24 lectures on the "Passions: Philosophy and the Intelligence of Emotions" course from the teaching company (TTC Course No. 4123) Taught by Robert C. Solomon from The University of Texas at Austin (Ph.D., University of Michigan).

I found it very entertaining, I didn't learn a super lot cause I was already well trained in emotional intelligence but I recommend it to anyone, a great teacher with some good lessons and will surely brighten up anyone. Philosophers and other people mentioned include Plato, Aristotle, William James, Freud, etc

I also learned that anger may not be quite the 'basic' emotion we think it is.
The Utkuhikhalingmiut tribe of Inuit (Eskimos) and The Polynesians of Tahiti and surrounding islands do not express anger at one another, and look down upon it, in fact the closest translation for the Utkuhikhalingmiut word would be childishness lol! The Polynesians even demonize anger and regard it as going crazy. Anthropologists who have studied Polynesians in some detail say that they hypercognize anger meaning that they talk about it a good deal, but they do not experience it often. In the west, we also hypercognize anger, but in this culture, that hypercognition serves as a spur to anger... (lol)

This leads me to think that anger is mostly an inherited evolutionary asset which we needed for protection, but clearly can be overcome much easier than thought if entire societies can get rid of it in a healthy way. So if you're embarking on the spiritual path or trying to be happier with controlling your thoughts, think of the Utkuhikhalingmiut and Polynesians for inspiration :) I'll leave you with this thought: Do you think enlightenment still includes anger?

If you're interested, here's some further reading:
Catherine Lutz, Unnatural Emotions.
Robert Levi, The Tahitians.
Jean Briggs, Never in Anger: Portrait of an Eskimo Family.

Here follows a Mahayana Buddhist Sutra on anger:

Sutra On The Buddha's Bequeathed Teaching
Sutra Preface

When Shakyamuni Buddha first turned the Wheel of Dharma, he crossed
over the Venerable Ajnatakaundinya. The very last time he spoke the
Dharma, he crossed over the Venerable Subhadhra. All of those whom
he should have crossed over had already been crossed over. He lay
between the Twin Sala trees and was about to enter Nirvana. At this
time, in the middle period of the night, all was quiet,without any
sound. Then for the sake of all of his disciples he spoke on the
essentials of the Dharma.


Avoiding Anger

All of you Bhikshus, if a person dismembered you piece by piece your
mind should be self-contained. Do not allow yourself to become
angry. Moreover, you should guard your mouth and not give rise to
evil speech. If you allow yourself to have thoughts of anger, you
will hinder your own Way, and lose the merit and virtue you have
gained. Patience is a virtue which neither upholding the precepts
nor the ascetic practises are able to compare with. One who is able
to practise patience can be called a great person who has strength;
if you are unable to happily and patiently undergo the poison of
malicious abuse, as if drinking sweet dew, you cannot be called a
wise person who has entered the Way. Why is this? The harm from
anger ruins all good dharmas and destroys one's good reputation.
People of the present and of the future will not even wish to see
this person. You should know that a heart of anger is worse than a
fierce fire. You should always guard against it, and not allow it to
enter you, for of the thieves which rob one's merit and virtue, none
surpasses anger. Anger may be excusable in lay people who indulge in
desires, and in people who do not cultivate the Way, who are without
the means to restrain themselves, but for people who have left the
home-life, who cultivate the Way and are without desires, harboring
anger is impermissable. Within a clear, cool cloud, there should not
be a sudden blazing clash of thunder.

How to stay stressed
a taster:
TAKE PLENTY OF STIMULANTS. The old standards of caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and cola will continue to do the job just fine.

AVOID "WOO-WOO" PRACTICES. Ignore the evidence suggesting that meditation, yoga, deep breathing, and/or mental imaging help to reduce stress. The Protestant work ethic is good for everyone, Protestant or not.

GET RID OF YOUR SOCIAL SUPPORT SYSTEM. Let the few friends who are willing to tolerate you know that concern yourself with friendships only if you have time, and you never have time. If a few people persist in trying to be your friend, avoid them.

PERSONALIZE ALL CRITICISM. Anyone who criticizes any aspect of your work, family, dog, house, or car is mounting a personal attack. Don't take time to listen, be offended, then return the attack!

THROW OUT YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR. Staying stressed is no laughing matter, and it shouldn't be treated as one.

MALES AND FEMALES ALIKE - BE MACHO. Never ever ask for help, and if you want it done right, do it yourself!

BECOME A WORKAHOLIC. Put work before everything else, and be sure to take work home evenings and weekends. Keep reminding yourself that vacations are for sissies.

DISCARD GOOD TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS. Schedule in more activities every day than you can possibly get done and then worry about it all whenever you get a chance.

PROCRASTINATE. Putting things off to the last second always produces a marvelous amount of stress.

WORRY ABOUT THINGS YOU CAN'T CONTROL. Worry about the stock market, earthquakes, the approaching Ice Age, you know, all the big issues.

BECOME NOT ONLY A PERFECTIONIST BUT SET IMPOSSIBLY HIGH STANDARDS ...and either beat yourself up, or ... feel guilty, depressed, discouraged, and/or inadequate when you don't meet them.

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned."

Thanks to Philosophy-Explained, check out this post for more interesting info. I'm fascinated by languge myself, engage in constant wordplay and am painfully aware of how language creates reality. This is an interesting enough lecture about setting some dictionairy-bs straight ;).


Reality is playing tricks again, Lon Milo Duquette dropped by to wonder where his money is if he was bought as Leo Zagami claimed in the interview with (possible disinfo) project camelot. I can only admire such levity, after all, we're chicken qabalists! Don't worry about it ;).

This is great timing as I was checking out Laurence Gardner more after posting that lecture yesterday. I have to say I'm very suspicious of this monatomic gold and especially its online sale :p. But Icke & Swerdlow, two researchers who I respect among the least of the whole bunch, accusing Gardner to be a reptilian shapeshifter? Hey it's possible :p but I don't know how to take this reality seriously anymore ;p. Nor would I want to! All hail Eris and Operation Mindfuck.

Daily Dedroidify: The Number 23, 17 and the law of fives.

Daily Dedroidify: The Number 23

Check out the link for more cause it's too much to post here (added the first sections though). In the Illuminatus Trilogy it is known as the 23/17 phenomonen (wink to Chris Knowles). Check out the link for more info on 23/17 including Illuminatus Excerpts, all things related 23 and the movie with Jim Carrey.

Robert Anton Wilson: What is the 23 enigma?

The "23 Enigma" is the Discordian belief that all events are connected to the number 23, given enough ingenuity on the part of the interpreter. It can be seen in Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea's Illuminatus! trilogy (there called the "23/17 phenomenon"), Wilson's Cosmic Trigger I: The Final Secret of the Illuminati (there called "The Law of 23s" and "The 23 Enigma"), Arthur Koestler's Challenge of Chance, as well as the Principia Discordia. In these works, 23 is considered either lucky, unlucky, sacred to the goddess Eris, sinister, sacred to the unholy gods of the Cthulhu Mythos, or strange.
Discordians regard this as a corollary of the Law of Fives. As with most numerological claims, the 23 enigma can be viewed as an example of apophenia, selection bias, and confirmation bias. In interviews, Wilson has acknowledged the self-fulfilling nature of the 23 enigma, implying that the real value of the Laws of Fives and Twenty-threes lies in their demonstration of the mind's power to perceive "truth" in nearly anything.
"When you start looking for something you tend to find it. This wouldn't be like Simon Newcombe, the great astronomer, who wrote a mathematical proof that heavier than air flight was impossible and published it a day before the Wright brothers took off. I'm talking about people who found a pattern in nature and wrote several scientific articles and got it accepted by a large part of the scientific community before it was generally agreed that there was no such pattern, it was all just selective perception." - Robert Anton Wilson explaining how easily people find facts to back their conspiracy theories after using the 23 phenomenon to illustrate this tendency (From Robert Anton Wilson Explains Everything, Sounds True, December 2001). In the Illuminatus! Trilogy, he expresses the same view: that one can find a numerological significance to anything, provided "sufficient cleverness." Though check the video linked above if this piece of text took the mystery out of it for you ;). (from the wikipedia article)

Fusion Anomaly 23: The Law of Fives states simply that:

9/11 2001: 9+11+2+1=23. WTC: W=23rd letter, T=20th, C=3rd, T+C=23. The BBC also reported the collapse of WTC building 7 which wasn't hit by a plane but obviously imploded due to controlled demolition (like Building 1 and 2) 23 minutes before its actual collapse. Oops. 2012: 20+1+2=23
David Beckham's choice of the number 23 shirt to play for Real Madrid: Michael Jordan wore the number 23 shirt, Caesar was stabbed 23 times, 23 mph is the maximum speed of an American crow; and let's not forget AA23, the cell in which Princess Leia was held in the original Star Wars movie. W is the 23 letter of this alphabet. The symbol for that letter is two points down and three points up.
VW the abbreviation for Volkswagen has V=roman numeral for 5 and W=2 down and 3 up in it. Waco Texas and the Oklahoma bombing both happened on april 19th, 19+4 (april)=23. The Hiroshima bomb was dropped at 8.15, 8+15=23.
23 Annunaki, the number of the supposed original advance team of "aliens" who aided in the seeding of life on this planet. William Shakespeare was born and died on April 23. Most of Shakespeare is known to us through the first folio published in 1623. The human biorhythm cycle is generally 23 days. One measures a circle beginning anywhere. It takes 23 seconds for blood to circulate through the human body.
Apollo 'Lunar Landings' 1 & 2 - First 'landing' on the Moon was in the Sea of Tranquility, 23.63 degrees East. Second 'landing' was in the Ocean of Storms, 23.42 degrees West. Notice the names of the picked sights and how they contrast. Note: First two 'landings' were Apollo 11 & 12 (11+12= 23).
In the early '60's in Tangiers, William Burroughs knew a certain "Captain Clark" who ran a ferry from Tangiers to Spain. One day, Clark said to Burroughs that he'd been running the ferry 23 years without an accident. That very day the ferry sank, killing Clark and everyone aboard. In the evening, Burroughs was thinking about this when he turned on the radio. The first newscast headlined the crash of an airline plane on the New York-Miami route. The pilot was another Captain Clark and the flight was listed as Flight 23 (ala the line "Captain Clark welcomes you aboard."). The human body has 46 chromosomes, which are paired, in somatic cells. Generative cells have half this number, 23, which is the number of chromosomes each parents gives to human DNA.
23 Axioms in Euclid's Geometry. The Knights Templars had only 23 Grandmasters. Jacques de Molay was the 23rd and last of the Templar Grandmasters. After the Rodney King verdict, a Korean shopkeeper during the L.A riots can be clearly seen shooting at looters from the roof of a building in front of a large sign proclaiming the number 23 and nothing else. There are 23 letters in the Latin alphabet. Max Headroom broadcast on Network 23.
Nissan is a brand of Japanese cars. In Japanese, "ni" is 2, and "san" is 3. So Nissan would be 23. In the film Alice of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland by the Czech director/animator Jan Svankmejer, Alice's taxidermically stuffed rabbit flings open the door by dressing itself and running 'away'. The case that holds the white rabbit (i.e. Pookah (i.e. one who takes you OUT)) is labeled "No. 23" 23 is the first prime number in which both digits are prime numbers and add up to another prime number. In the Qabalistic Tree of Life the 23rd path is associated with the Hanged Man Tarot Card. Aleister Crowley also states that this card represents the concept that the only way OUT is WITHIN. 23 HOP is the club where the Toronto rave scene was created.
Popeye is seen repeatedly pondering the number 23 in many of his 1970's TV Cartoons. Film: Star Wars In the final assault on the Death Star, Luke Skywalker is in Red 5. Red 2 and Red 3 start the bomb runs at 23 degrees."Stay on target!" AA-23 designation of the detention block on the first Death Star used to imprison Princess Leia. It was located on Level 5. Standard TCP/IP port for Telnet is 23.
In the movie THX1138 directed by George Lucas and produced by Francis Ford Coppala, the main police droid is number 23. Church of the Process - Famed church, espoused by Skinny Puppy and Psychic TV, which regards 23 as a special number of great significance. The address of the Freemasons lodge in Stafford, England is 23 Jaol Rd. In New York it is on 23rd street. Physics: Tidal Wave Frequency - On average every 23rd wave crashing to shore is twice as large as normal. Money: U.S. Coinage - There are exactly 23 plainly visible characters (letters & numbers) on the front of U.S. Coins. The Earth is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees (At the moment).
Film: Unbearable Lightness Of Being - The characters had stopped in a doorway, as the Russian tanks rolled into the city. The number on the doorway was 23. TV series - Kung Fu episode #23 - The Tong - Caine helps a missionary woman rescue a Chinese boy from slavery to a member of the Dragon of Retribution Tong. There are 23 buildings on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Washington.
The "Dog Days" of summer begin on July 23rd when the star Sirius (the brightest star in our Summer sky), first rises from behind the sun in the Constellation of Canis Major. The pattern of DNA shows irregular connections at every 23rd section (angtroms). Humans have 23 vertebra running down their main bit.
Blood circulates the body on average every 23 seconds. the 23rd letter in the Greek alphabet is Psi. In quantum physics the wave function (denoted by the Greek psi symbol) is sometimes referred to as mathematical fiction. When Schrodinger developed his famous wave equation, it was a puzzle as to what psi really represented. It was concluded that the wave function depicted probabilities--and not energy. The 23rd hexagram of the I-Ching signifies chaos (Hail Eris!) Disintegration.
film One Hour Photo directed by Mark Romanek - 23 was shown twice. the number of the kid's soccer jersey, as well as how many peole waiting to be served at the one hour photo. It's also Catch-23 Productions.
film Matrix: Reloaded - Architect: The function of the One is now to return to the Source, allowing a temporary dissemination of the code you carry, reinserting the prime program. After which, you will be required to select from the Matrix 23 individuals - 16 female, 7 male - to rebuild Zion. Failure to comply with this process will result in a cataclysmic system crash, killing everyone connected to the Matrix, which, coupled with the extermination of Zion, will ultimately result in the extinction of the entire human race. Neo: You won't let it happen. You can't. You need human beings to survive.

Laurence Gardner - Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark

Laurence Gardner - Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark

From the royal tombs of pharaonic Egypt, to the laboratories of modern science, comes the extraordinary account of gravity defiance and teleportation in the ancient world. The Book of the Dead refers to a hyper-dimensional realm called the Field of Mfkzt, which is now determined as a superconductive energy field of high-spin metallurgy. Liaising with modern physicists, Laurence Gardner has ascertained that mfkzt (known today as monatomic gold) was the secret of the pharaohs' rite of passage to the Afterlife, and was directly associated with the pyramids and the biblical Ark of the Covenant, as revealed by inscriptions at the Sinai mountain temple of Moses.

8 Destructive thinking patterns and how to change them

Check out this possible life changing article by Steven Aitchison.

And pay attention in the media how much these limiting "loser scripts" are actually projected in your mind. If you want a course in how to be any kind of loser, just turn on the tv. Which seems to run on limited scripts and negative embedded suggestions. You can learn a lot by looking deeper and further into what you're being presented, by being a little more aware so you can transmute all that negativity being thrown at you and already within yourself into the positive.

Here are the winner/loser scripts for the 8 Circuit Model.

Daily Dedroidify: Going to Galway

An old Irish story tells of a farm woman who set out on the road, walking at a brisk pace.
"Where are you going Maureen?" a neighbor woman asked.
"I'm going to Galway," said Maureen.
"Be careful," the neighbor warned. "You should say, 'I'm going to Galway, God willing.'"
"Stuff and nonsense," said Maureen. "I'm going to Galway and sure that's the whole of the matter."
God thereupon waxed sorely pissed. He turned the poor woman into a frog and deposited her in a swamp with a few thousand other frogs, and there he left her for seven long, long years.
All she heard or said for those dreary years consisted of "Gribbit! Gribbit! Gribbit!" and an occasional more classical "Koax, koax, koax!"
Everything she saw was dank and dark, like a scene from Poe, and all she had to eat were flies.
"It's enough to bother a body," she thought mournfully on many a miserable and rainy day.
At the end of seven years, God relented and allowed Maureen to resume a human form.
She immediately climbed out of the swamp, washed her clothes, and hung them on a traditional hickory limb.
When everything was dry, the good woman dressed herself again and started out on the road once more.
"Where are you going, Maureen?" asked another neighbor.
"To Galway," she said, "or back to that damned swamp with the frogs."

Sorry folks didn't reach a computer before leaving for the Cactus festival in Bruges today, had a great time, a nice little festival, with a great atmosphere. Even kids running around collecting the plastic cups to get a free drink ticket so no trash anywhere ;) cool festival people, lots of different music & summer weather. Let me share my day with you!

DeVotchKa live with Slavic Sisters acrobatic act

Check out the great pictures at the end of this slideshow here for a great acrobatic act of a slavic sister, there are two in this video. He ended the set with his guitar against the theremin making some really cool sounds.

I really like this song by them:

Devotchka: How it ends

More Gypsy rock followed

Shantel: Disco Partizane

They opened with a semi-live version of this:

Ian Oliver feat. Shantel - Bucovina (Radio Mix)

Then this Belgian band which has some great songs:

Arsenal: Lotuk Live and a live version but the sound isn't so good and it's a guest singer. This is another good song by them: Switch.

Then The Kills, a man & woman with a guitar each and a beatmachine, I didn't really dig it but my buddy did. I can't even find a youtube vid I like of them ;) and after that some singer songwriter band named Sophia which sucked and was the worst warm-up for Bootsy Collins you can imagine ;p We also didn't see the first & last performers.

Bootsy Collins only did one song himself, but did come in the audience and walked right by us twice and the show was real good nonetheless. Mostly it was a James Brown tribute with a real good singer & dancer lookalike, and the guitarist and bassist from Public Enemy were part of the band too.

Bootsy in action, too bad I didn't get to hear this there but we got the funk ;)

Illuminatus Audiobook part III Leviathan is out


"The ultimate weapon isn't this plague out in Vegas, or any new super H-bomb. The ultimate weapon has always existed. Every man, every woman, and every child owns it. It's the ability to say No and take the consequences." - Hagbard Celine, Leviathan

Illuminatus! Part III ushers in the apocalyptic high-camp conclusion of the Illuminatus! Trilogy. The 9th and 10th Trips are performed by a grand ensemble cast. The Appendices (which are most instructive) are performed by the incomparable Ken Campbell, bringing the audiobook trilogy full circle. Part III includes the PROLOGUE, only published in the original separate editions of the The Trilogy. The Illuminati has never looked so good. ALL HAIL ERIS!

Abydos Tech or Palimpsest?

From this link: "The glyphs are a result of both erosion of the stone surface (evident elsewhere in the temple) and the process of filling in and re-carving the stone to replace some of the original hieroglyphics. The technical term for such a surface that has been written on more than once is a palimpsest. The usurping and modifying of inscriptions was common in ancient Egypt throughout its history. The Abydos glyph was modified at least once in antiquity, and perhaps twice. Some of the filling has fallen out in places where the older and the newer inscriptions overlap, and the result is unique and odd-looking.

The text is part of the titulary of Ramesses II and can be translated as "The one of the Two Ladies, who suppresses the nine foreign countries." This replaces the royal titulary of Seti I that was originally carved into the stone. More technically, the actual "helicopter" seems to be a portion of the psd.t sign and the X3s.t sign on top of each other, with portions missing. An apparent change in scale also mucks things up."

Finally back on main pc

Woot! The damn gods have finally stopped toying with me, Eris and some subordinate named Murphy in particular :p. I was trying to put a new agp card in my puter and the power button now seems to need a special kind of fingerspitzgefuhl to be able to boot it properly. It took like 45 minutes to get it to work, so no more powering off for a while :p.

Daily Dedroidify: Stoned Ape Theory

Daily Dedroidify: Stoned Ape Theory

Introducing... something else :p
The stoned ape theory of evolution by Terence McKenna
(download comic book - right click & save as)

"Man is a very odd creature. And to have arisen in a million years from the chipping of flint to launching of the space shuttle and the hurling of instruments out of the solar system, it seems preposterous to maintain that the forces and facts of nature as we know them could have allowed us to do what we are doing. Instead, I take a very premodern view: we are in league with the demiurge. We are the children of a force that we can barely imagine."

Puter Job funnies

The Website Is Down: Sales Guy vs. Web Dude

If you haven't worked in IT this is probably not thàt funny, but hey, explore the reality tunnel ;). Here are some hilarious computer job-related things I remember off the top of my head:

In Networking Operations for a financial company (eww):
* Calling a Russian bank to check their server which is creating an error-msg flood on the monitor screens is always an adventure.
russian: GgGhhHhello?
me: Hello, this is *me* from *company name* calling, could you check your *company name* server?
russian: Surfehrr??
me: *company name*, computer
russian: ooh, computer!
me: yes, reboot please (screw checking it, that's really the modus operandi with major companies)
russian: reboot?
me: turn off... and on
russian: off and on, yes...?
me: yes, thank you, bye

Then you call back fifteen minutes later if nothing happens on the monitor screen.

ISP helpdesk:
* first day on the job, new employees in a meeting room, manager asks: So, how many of you here know what e-mail is?
* You know the old cupholder-cdrom joke, that really happened.
* client calls on phone: You broke my internet again! (: oh my bad, here I thought I was gonna fix it)
* collegue: dude your chat shell connection just got nuked severely and botched a server downstairs (: oh, crap)

Wayne Dyer: Muscle Testing

Wayne Dyer & the Arm test

I tried this with a kinesiologist once, he only had about 70% accuracy with a list of 10 foods (of which a lot are obvious). I was underwhelmed.

Check out this critique of Muscle Testing in Kinesiology of David Hawkins book Power vs Force, here is an excerpt:
What muscle testing, pendulum work and other forms of dowsing do is to allow us to "interview" our own or another's subconscious mind. The more we trust, practice and let go to these methods, the clearer and more consistent the communication. We become adepts at the language of the subconscious, and the information we learn greater and greater trust in the information that we receive. (I know of water dowsers in Ireland that are spot on every time when looking for where to sink a well, which is just as well as a mistake in location would be very costly in time and money.)

Some people, however, claim that these whisperings of the subconscious can potentially give us a method to determine absolute or objective truth to questions relating to matter beyond the health and vitality of the body. Recently, a book called Power vs Force has appeared on the New Age book shelves, and its author, ex-psychiatrist Dr. David Hawkins, has begun a whole program to calibrate "truth" on a scale of 1 to 1000. So for example, he and his team of muscle testers claims that Jesus calibrates at 1000, Mahayana Buddhism at 960, the Koran at 720, love at 500, reason at 400, fear at 100 and shame at 20. 85% of the world's population, according to Hawkins, calibrates at under 200 — the threshold of integrity. [This list makes some alarm bells go off for me.]

Whilst Hawkins' work is interesting and raises some challenging questions, what is concerning is that few in the "New Age" and progressive communities seem to question it. For example, a recent article published on Dr. Hawkins and his work in Kindred Spirit magazine does not challenge any of Hawkins' assertions. The author appears to have swallowed Hawkins's work hook, line and sinker. And yet, the paradigm that Hawkins is promoting is not as healthy as it seems, and could even be a huge step-back in our spiritual development. (Part of the reason nobody criticises his work may well be fear of judgment — criticism may get them calibrated below 200.)

The first clue to the shortcomings of Hawkins' calibration theory is his intellectualism: Force vs Power is a very dry read. Whenever something relatively simple is presented in an intellectual and scientific manner way beyond what is necessary or justifiable, you know that you may well be staring at a nude emperor. Gregg Braden did it with his new work the God Code, and Hawkins does it with his simple muscle testing implications. What happens is that the overly intellectual and scientific context in which a theory is presented ends up giving it a high standing in the eyes of ordinary people, because it is so easy for the authority of the scientific context to bleed into the unsubstantiated nature of the content. So you get a situation whereby the only criticism for works like these comes from those conversant in science — which is mostly the scientific establishment. And "they" would criticise such cutting-edge alternative research, wouldn't they!

Throughout history spiritual truths were often hidden because you could get killed for your beliefs, but more often than not these days they are lying on a deckchair getting a tan, whilst a distracted world passes them by.

If you strip down Hawkins' work to its bare essentials, you have a man that is basically dowsing for God. He is taking the whisperings of the subconscious as absolute measure of all things, even something as abstract as "truth". But surely, to understand whether this is justified, we need to understand what the subconscious is and what truth is. Without examining these terms, we end up making meaningless assertions, such as Hawkins' "a cat's purr calibrates at 500".

Dr. David Hawkins and his books calibrate extremely highly… and so they are as close to truth as you are going to get. (Power vs Force, according to Hawkins, calibrates at 850, which is higher than the Bible or the Koran, or indeed almost anything else ever written by a human being.)

Crowd Control Weapons

Goo, ray guns aim to protect @ Yahoo! Video

Ah CNN magic, protestors are terrorists and rational people don't worry about being exposed to the police's crazy new weaponry. Wonderful objective reporting, that's not propaganda at all :p

Justice can't be done in secret. And here's why

We will always try to twist the evidence to fit our theories.
Especially when we are wrong.

Why do people refuse to accept what simply has to be true? Social psychologists use a term to describe this behaviour that you may have come across - it is called cognitive dissonance. This is the tension that arises when a person holds two attitudes that are psychologically inconsistent. And it is tension that is hard to live with, tension that simply has to be resolved.

So what do you do? A brilliant new book by Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson - Mistakes Were Made, but not by Me - explains. You believe that you are a good person, say, yet you know you have done a bad thing. There is dissonance. You resolve it by deciding that the bad thing was not that bad. The worse your behaviour, the harder you will try to twist it around in your head until you can reconcile it with your view of yourself.

It is commonly thought that we have theories and that they are tested by the facts. The opposite is true. We have theories and then we strive mightily to fit the facts into them, ignoring those that don't quite work or reinterpreting them if we have to. The more we have at stake emotionally, the more pressing this task becomes.

Cognitive disssonance explains a great deal. Take Gordon Brown. Some people believe that all the strife, all the difficulties he is encountering may lead him to give up. Cognitive dissonance suggests that the more trouble he is in, the more difficult things get, the harder he will work to convince himself that it is all worthwhile and that he is indispensable. His troubles make him less likely to resign, not more.

When groups - police, medics, politicians, social workers, the Family Court apparatus - get together, convinced of their own righteousness, the facts (like Timothy Evans) can go hang. They are certain that they are right, certain they are just and often, you know, they really are. But when they are not, they will never ever admit it, digging themselves in more and more deeply.

There's only one way out. That is to allow others, those without a stake in the righteousness of anyone, to shine a light on proceedings. Not to do so is inexcusable. It is an affront to justice and the rule of law.

Terence McKenna: Alchemical Dreams trailer

From the official site: In the mid-1990's Terence McKenna and Mystic Fire's Sheldon Rocklin teamed up to make this rich and exciting film. Little did they know that this would be their last film. Filmed in Prague with Terence portraying his usual erudite rendition of the Irish Bard, this filmed classic takes us on a journey into the alchemical renaissance of King Frederick V and his wife Queen Elizabeth of Bohemia.

Playing the role of John Dee, court magician for Queen Elizabeth of England, Terence McKenna shows us how the promise of a return to the tradition of alchemy was almost instituted in Europe. He also shows us that this early attempt at the creation of an alchemical kingdom actually lead to the European Renaissance and the institution of Cartesian science and the beginnings of rationalism within the western mindset. This incredible film is not only beautifully filmed but is Terence McKenna’s finest performance and a worthy eulogy to his genius.

Daily Dedroidify: Satan: a symbol of lies & ignorance

Daily Dedroidify: Satan: a symbol of lies & ignorance

The book of Job is nothing else than an allegory that has the purpose to show that evil on earth is a trial of virtue. All persons in this work are symbolic and especially their names point this out. Job is the appointed, Satan is the trial in general and harassment in particular. The story facts are just as improbable as in fabels, but the philosophy of it is very beautiful. From all of this nothing reasonable is to be concluded about the reality of a figure named Stan. (rofl, I refuse to change this typo)

In the Gospels Jesus speaks the following profound riddle words filled with eternal wisdom: 'The devil is as much a liar as his father.' The devil, whoever it may be, could thus not be a creature of God, at least not in his uality of the devil. Who or what then can be the father of the devil? The father of the devil is the lie. He is himself the lie and the father of the lie.
Satan, the representation of the fallen angel, the one that instead of soaring to the wisdom of the etheric, descends into the stupidity of the material.
He is the one all including madness. But it is a terrible, conniving, shrude power, that assumes a thousand formes, that penetrates all, sometimes threatening sometimes flattering, always destined, a power that God wanted when he wanted freedom, however destined this power brings forth slavery; a power that personifies itself in the large group of the purposefully erring.

One can read in the Gospels that the Messiah asks him how he calls himself, and he answers: 'I call myself Legion, cause we form a large multitude.' The devil is the beast, or rather the working inspiration for the multitude's working stupidity: it is the attraction of evil.

Excerpt from Eliphas Levi: Elements of Kabbala

"Benefiting as they do from our ignorance as to the workings of social engineering. The leaders in office can hardly be expected to use their power and resources to effectively change the status quo. They're not inclined to demand or cause real change, because they covet the view from tittering penthouses beyond the glass ceiling and the clammier of the audiences, unaware of their own self and power to change the world around them.

Fortunately the times are changing and the masks are finally coming down. To the surprise of both protagonist and antagonist. It has already begun to dawn on the few, that in their order for the thrill in climbing up higher above others and in their narcissistic view for reaching the skies. They have like Icarus, flown too close to the sun. So what a shock it will be for those who seek the prize of technological enlightenment and social utopia to realize after all there sacrifices they are doomed to fall back to earth with blazing wings. What cries will be heard from those whose vanity has propelled them so high above the world. When their exclusive reality comes crashing graciously down.

Already we are beginning to hear these cries and as the new millennium advances we are going to hear them more and more frequently. From the mouths of those finally recognizing that while they despotically ruled from their steely cloud crown penthouses they allowed their foundations to rot weaken and finally crumble away to nothing. We are approaching the days when many seemingly ancient myths are going to be reenacted. In fact some of the greatest so called myths are yet to occur. What a surprise it would be to find out that Lucifer's great fall from paradise was not an event of the past but an event that is still to come."

Silly title I know ;p had to change the title of the post hehe. This is Lyndon LaRouche apparently, quite the controversial figure, I've never heard of him so I have some reading to do. Sounds a little scaremongering in the vid but he does have valid points. Cool compilation with the news articles. I'm really suspicious about the Lisbon treaty, every referendum has rejected the treaty, yet more than half of the countries (their politicians) of the EU have already ratified it.

Daily Dedroidify: Tree of Knowledge

Daily Dedroidify: Tree of Knowledge

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.

Study finds long benefit in illegal mushroom drug

In 2002, at a Johns Hopkins University laboratory, a business consultant named Dede Osborn took a psychedelic drug as part of a research project.

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.

Rick Strassman's New Book: Inner Paths To Outer Space

"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.

John Lilly's Simulations of God - Science of Belief

I'm reading this great book that is really helping me to make some more sense of motivations of my own and others and this crazy reality.

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.
