James Arthur: Mushrooms and Mankind

Fascinating lecture on the potential of Entheogens (mushrooms, LSD, etc). How religion has obscured this. Government programs that tried to use entheogens (mushrooms: fail, LSD: worked...) for their trauma based Mind Control, goes into several projects including Artichoke and MK Ultra. The entheogenic symbolism of Christmas and Religion.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars ep2 Rising Malevolence

Synchromystic write-up for the series Clone Wars Episode 2 Rising Malevolence. The write-up on "Episode 1: AmBush" is here (read the intro if you don't know what's going on here). Synchromysticism on this blog means: Learning about the Esoteric, through the Exoteric. (Whatever excuse we can find in mainstream media and reality in general, to talk about the underlying or hidden realities, and expose possible positive and negative influences in media, put there consciously or not.) These are just possible interpretations.
Synopsis: Anakin and Ahsoka have to save Jedi Master Plo Koon and his clone troopers after the Separatist Army (Dooku & Grievous) uses their devastating new weapon.

Every episode starts with a "Jedi Fortune Cookie",
so far the first two were kinda bad:

Geez... are you a CONVICT of your beliefs?
It can be a matter of choice, just by choosing... heh.
(Divide & Conquer through beliefs.)

Count Dooku: Jam transmissions! (of the Republic's troops)
(confuse their language, obscure the truth, destroy their communication,
divide and conquer them through belief...)

The young Jedi Ahsoka was pressing to look for survivors to the Jedi Councel, who did not agree, a secret weapon the separatists have, has priority. But later Anakin goes on with the search for survivors anyway.

Ahsoka: So it's ok when you don't follow what the council says?
Anakin: Doing what the Jedi council says, that's one thing. How we go about doing it that's another. That's what I'm trying to teach you my young Padawan. (Restrictive "Freedom" for ya, as long as you're following orders)

Ahsoka: But that's what I said in the briefing room!?
Anakin: I know, but the way you said it was wrong. (learn your place, little one...) Hurry up, switch on the illuminator. (Hide shit? why should we hide shit? :p We're "illuminated")

Plo Koon: "When you ask for trouble,
you should not be surprised when it finds you."

later this general and Jedi 'Master' (yuck at calling anyone 'master') when facing certain death goes to face the enemy, "no retreat, no surrender", always a useful philosophy for your expendable troops...

There you go, a few droids destroy an escape pod's window and human crew members are vented into space, suffocating to their deaths. This is children's entertainment, mind you. (more like entrainment).

Ahsoka finds the fellow soldiers (soul-die-ers) in the nick of time.
(bit of a stretch, but funny: Asoko in Japanese: "there, over there")

Plo Koon: Sergeant, why are you so certain no one is coming?
Clone Trooper: We're just clones sir, we're meant to be expendable...
Plo Koon: Not to me. ("please believe this bullshit expendable soldiers, or the Illuminati are powerless" lol)

...And of course Anakin and Ahsoka just arrive...

The bad guys are called the "Separatists" (who don't want a NWO? :p), who are a False Flag division army à la Al Qaeda of Palpatine who is both the leader of the Republic and the Separatists... (and called "your Excellency" of all things) to create a false conflict (between Clones and Droids, and a lot of innocent victims...) out of which to go for an ultimate Power Grab. "Fiction."

Check out the Trinity of symbols near the third eye in all these characters:

Medical Droid.

Ahsoka and Plo Koon.
Creators of this show: Haha, we know about the third eye
and the common joe doesn't.

Suddenly, Dooku and Grievous appear in the star system and they have to power everything down in the ship to not be detected easily. Dammit! R2 the droid is still active, tss "droids"... always a nuisance... The Jedi "Masters" forget about the medical droid they saw A FEW MINUTES ago. Nice...

Suddenly the Medical Droid comes on the bridge: Is there a problem sir? May I be of assistance?
Anakin: No thanks just get in the back and take care of the clones.
Medical Droid: That is my programming sir...

Anakin: Come on we've gotta get outta here
Ahsoka: I know... I know... (*bangs head on desk for the whinification of Star Wars in the Prequels* :p Yes I know, Luke wanted to go to Tashi station to pick up some power converters, but hey hehe.)

Right after this Anakin again forgets something, that R2 is still switched off - to activate the hyperdrive, are these "aware" Jedi masters or a bunch of chumps?

An Ion Cannon, kind of Electromagnetic Pulse is fired. But they escape, barely.
Another great symbol of technology reflecting consciousness. By "disempowering the enemy" overall, you win. Can't think of another technology reflecting consciousness? How about the Internet and the Collective Unconscious?

At the end, a lesson in bureaucracy & hierarchy:

Plo Koon: Skywalker it is time to give our report to the council
Skywalker: Right... the council report, come on Ahsoka
Ahsoka: You want me there, I figured because of before...
Skywalker: Ahsoka, through it all you never gave up, you did a great job, but if I'm getting in trouble for this, you're gonna share some of the blame too. Huhu, so come on, let's go.
Ahsoka: Right beside you master. (good slave)

I saw a few of the following episodes and they're pretty good, not much symbolism found anymore.

More about Alex Jones' objections to Zeitgeist Addendum

"Alan Watt and Alex Jones claim Zeitgeist, Krishnamurti, and Jacque Fresco are part of a transhumanist agenda."

This is BS. Re-searching stuff before sending it along to other people or adding helpful information helps us to wade through the "matrix of illusion".
* Zeitgeist 1 part 1 exposed the occult symbolism in all religion (it does not advocate an occult religion) from the documentary the Pharmacratic Inquisition, which rules. Alex Jones probably did not appreciate this to start with.
Part 2 included segments of 9/11 Loose Change. And Part 3 included America: From Freedom to Fascism which includes a message against microchipping the population.
* Krishnamurti was a mystic who broke off from the theosophist movement. I'm a mystic (and I am not too fond of Krishnamurti's writings, though he obviously has some good quotes, and hey: different teachers for different people), am I suddenly a transhumanist?
* Jacque Fresco has nothing to do with the transhumanist movement, the only "transhumanist" suggestion he has ever made that I know of is bionic eyes to make the blind see, oh no! how terrible. The inhumanity... Read Jacque's book Designing the Future, check out the sites, listen and read the interviews - then you can accuse of him of whatever... (that is what you're doing if you spread this stuff, you're not just saying "these people accuse him", you are doing it too by forwarding this crap.)

I don't trust anybody unconditionally. But I also realize that researchers may be just humans in public life talking about heavy stuff, that is not easy. They could be disinfo too here for predictive programming... who knows (though that is a dark view indeed).
I just think Alex Jones really didn't appreciate the first part of Zeitgeist 1 debunking Christianity and his American spirit can't stand anything that even reflects "communism" in the slightest (The Venus Project is not communism).
AJ basically said in his first Zeitgeist 2 videos that he wants to keep hierarchy, wtf?! Hierarchy will always have people oppressed. And Alan Watt... (NOT Alan Watts) I've listened to him for hours, heard stuff I heard everywhere else and some fearmongering, no solutions oh and the info that smoking cigarettes stops chemtrail effects... Good luck with that (Obviously oversimplified here, you get the idea). I will stay aware about Fresco too, but I don't see anything nefarious in the Venus project at this time...

Check out these two questions answered by Jacque Fresco in this interview:
Q: In this new culture do you propose to utilize a technical elite that would decide the direction for society?
A: No. The Venus Project calls for a cybernated society in which computers could replace the outmoded system of electing politicians that, in most cases, represent the entrenched vested interests. Technology will never dictate or monitor individuals' lives, as this would be considered socially offensive and counterproductive. Motion pictures such as 1984, Brave New World, Blade- Runner, and Terminator 2 have spawned fear in some people regarding the takeover of technology in our society. The Venus Project's only purpose is to elevate the spiritual and intellectual potential of all people while also providing the goods and services that will meet their individual material needs.
It has been said that many people employed by private corporations feel they serve in private dictatorships from the moment they step though the door and punch the time clock. The Venus Project, on the other hand, would utilize the best of technology to better the lives of everyone. In the proposed system, the workday will be shortened, thus providing individuals with more leisure time, a healthier life-style, and a stress-free environment.

Q: What are the safeguards against abuse of power in the society you envision?
A: In a resource-based economy, we surpass the need for money which is the basis for most corruption. The society we envision makes all goods and services available for everyone without a price tag. This is what the function of government could be, by surpassing the need for politics in the management of human affairs. At present, governmental decisions have always been subject to the influence of the power elite. The cybernated complex would only manage and improve the distribution of resources, to provide clean air, clean water, and all of the amenities that enhance human life. Again, it does not control people or manage the lives of individuals -- on the contrary, it could encourage the development of individual initiative and creativity far beyond that of our present-day money- oriented culture.
There are many who fear the installations of cybernated systems. This fear is unfounded. It is not technology that is to be feared. Our concern should be with the abuse of this technology, rather than with the inanimate technology itself.

here is the rest (2 interview series there)

(from the next post partly:) I don't trust anybody unconditionally. But I also realize that these researchers may be just humans in public life talking about heavy stuff, that is not easy. They could be disinfo too here for predictive programming... who knows (though that is a dark view indeed). These interviews are pretty good about the big picture, of course Tsarion can't talk about Christianity to Alex Jones but otherwise it's pretty ok. Alex talks about the fearmongering accusations too.
(That being said I don't agree with Alex Jones about Zeitgeist Addendum, which isn't discussed in this interview, and address this at the link provided.)

A Bug’s Life: Grasshoppers Controlling Ants

A Bug’s Life: Grasshoppers Controlling Ants

Allow my Conspiracy Reality Tunnel to go wild with this one: It's not just a metaphor for America 2008, but for the entire world since the beginning of civilization. This is what I mean by possible substitution-fiction manipulation. "Here, enjoy this pseudo-revolt you're not having!"

Based on Aesop's The Ant and the Grasshopper, the moral of which is supposedly about hard work vs laziness. I suggest at least some other versions are about working your ass off for the lazy greedy, your government. Check out some of these adaptations and realize how a group of grasshoppers might be laughing hard at the ignorance of sombunall(but much) humans.

"Happier" versions of the fable show the ants taking pity and giving the grasshopper some food, on the premise that turning the grasshopper away in his time of need is also morally questionable. (I'm all for helping the needy especially in world systems that are so screwed up, I'm not for helping the lazy greedy, let the schmucks in office get a real job.) A prime example is the 1934 animated short subject produced by Walt Disney. The Queen of the Ants decrees that the grasshopper may stay in the ant colony, but he must play his fiddle in return for his room and board. (entertainment, entrainment) He agrees to this arrangement, and the ant tunnels become a grand ballroom where all the ants happily dance to the music of the grasshopper, who finally learns that he needs to make himself useful. Notably, this short introduced the song "The World Owes Me a Livin'" (huge balls), which would later become a signature tune for Goofy.

The fable was retold on The Muppet Show in the episode guest-starring Bernadette Peters. Sam the Eagle narrates the story which ends with the ant being stepped on and the grasshopper driving his sports car to Florida.

Elements of the fable were loosely adapted as part of the storyline of the Pixar film A Bug's Life. In this instance, though, there are multiple grasshoppers, and they act as Mafia-like tyrants (aka a metaphor for the government) who demand a tribute of food from the ant colony, even though the ants within far outnumber the grasshoppers.

In the film Things Change, Don Ameche recalls an alternate version where the grasshopper eats the ant in the end.

An alternate version was shown during a wartime cartoon that has the grasshopper not worried about food because he invested in warbonds...

Unlocking You, Human Needs, Self Actualization, How to, Maslow, Humanistic Psychology

Unlocking You, Human Needs, Self Actualization, How to, Maslow, Humanistic Psychology - More from PsycheTruth

Abraham Maslow’s 8 Ways to Self-Actualize
1. Experience things fully, vividly, selflessly. Throw yourself into the experiencing of something: concentrate on it fully, let it totally absorb you.
2. Life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (out of fear and need for defense) and risk (for the sake of progress and growth): Make the growth choice a dozen times a day.
3. Let the self emerge. Try to shut out the external clues as to what you should think, feel, say, and so on, and let your experience enable you to say what you truly feel.
4. When in doubt, be honest. If you look into yourself and are honest, you will also take responsibility. Taking responsibility is self-actualizing.
5. Listen to your own tastes. Be prepared to be unpopular.
6. Use your intelligence, work to do well the things you want to do, no matter how insignificant they seem to be.
7. Make peak experiencing more likely: get rid of illusions and false notions. Learn what you are good at and what your potentialities are not.
8. Find out who you are, what you are, what you like and don’t like, what is good and what is bad for you, where you are going, what your mission is. Opening yourself up to yourself in this way means identifying defenses - and then finding the courage to give them up. (this is a continuing dynamic, not a static process)
