Terence McKenna: The Transcendental Object is slowly revealing itself to us


Terence McKenna: The Transcendental Object is slowly revealing itself to us

Awesome words by McKenna, freaky slideshow, don't worry kittens - only the beginning pictures are so dark.

Thanks to Càm

ECCO: Earth Coincidence Control Office

Excerpt from "The Dyadic Cyclone" by John C. Lilly M.D.
Don't really like the language used here myself, but if you can get over it, it sure is fascinating. I offer this as catma probable, not dogma absolute. Check out the comments for some re-shaping of it.

"In ones life there can be peculiarly appropriate chains of related events that lead to consequences that are strongly desired. After such experiences, one wonders how such a series of events developed; sometimes there is a strong feeling that some intelligence (greater than ours) directed the course along certain lines which It/He/She was/is programming. Several years ago, I enunciated a format for such concatenations of events, somewhat."

"There exists a Cosmic Control Center (C.C.C.) with a Galactic substation called Galactic Coincidence Control (G.C.C.). Within which is the Solar System Control Unit (S.S.C.U.), within which is the Earth Coincidence Control Office (E.C.C.O.). The assignments of responsiblities from the top to the bottom of this system of control is by a set of regulations, which translated by E.C.C.O. for humans is somewhat as follows:"

To all humans. If you wish to control coincidences in your own life on the planet Earth, we will cooperate and determine those coincidences for you under the following conditions:

1) You must know/assume/simulate our existence in ECCO [Being aware of the mere concept of Synchronicity, meaningful coincidence will get you started.]

2) You must be willing to accept our responsibility for control of your coincidences.

3) You must exert your best capabilities for your survival programs and your own development as an advancing/advanced member of ECCO's earthside corps of controlled coincidence workers. You are expected to use your best intelligence in this service.

4) You are expected to expect the unexpected every minute, every hour of every day and of every night.

5) You must be able to maintain conscious/thinking/reasoning no matter what events we arrange to happen to you. Some of these events will seem cataclysmic/catastrophic/overwhelming: remember stay aware, no matter what happens/apparently happens to you.

6) You are in our training program for life: there is no escape from it. We (not you) control the long-term coincidences; you (not we) control the shorter-term coincidences by your own efforts.

7) Your major mission on earth is to discover/create that which we do to control the long-term coincidence patterns: you are being trained on Earth to do this job.

8) When your mission on planet Earth is completed, you will no longer be required to remain/return there.

9) Remember the motto passed to us (from GCC via SSCU): "Cosmic Love is absolutelely Ruthless and Highly Indifferent: it teaches its lessons whether you like/dislike them or not."

The Invisibles: Volume 1; Issue 1

DC Comics is offering all legal like the first issue of the coolest comic ever , for those who don't know them, they are invisible after all: The plot follows a single cell of The Invisible College, a secret society battling against physical and psychic oppression using time travel, magic(k), meditation, and physical violence.

For most of the series, the team includes leader King Mob; Lord Fanny, a Brazilian transgendered shaman; Boy, a former member of the NYPD; Ragged Robin, a telepath with a mysterious past; and Jack Frost, a young hooligan from Liverpool who may be the next Buddha (psst: we all may be the or a next Buddha). Their enemies are the Archons of Outer Church, interdimensional alien gods who have already enslaved most of the human race without its knowledge.

Not much use for synchromystic analysis when it's all out in the open, and that's what is so excellent about this comic!

Thanks to The Invisibles for the heads up.

Don Trent Jacobs - Julian Jaynes & Our Consciousness


Don Trent Jacobs - Julian Jaynes & Our Consciousness

Professor Don Trent Jacobs (aka Wahinkpe Topa) discusses hypnotism, an exploitable vestige of pre-consciousness, noting that our vulnerabilities are being professionally exploited to direct formulate an acceptable collective cognitive imperative.

"When the bio-survival circuit flashes danger, all other mental activity ceases."
Robert Anton Wilson

"Every politician knows how to induce hypnosis, and very damned few people on the whole planet know how to de-hypnotize themselves.
The world is not governed by facts or logic. It is governed by BS (belief systems)."
Robert Anton Wilson

(These aspects were not specifically mentioned in the Layman's explanation post, so don't look for them ;p Obviously the Julian Jaynes approach DTJ takes here is different. Think of interpretations in catma "and" mode instead of "or" mode.)

Butthole Surfers - Pepper


Butthole Surfers - Pepper

Marky got with Sharon and Sharon got Sharice
She was sharing Sharon's outlook on the topic of disease
Mikey had a facial scar and Bobby was a racist
They were all in love with dying, they were doing it in Texas
Tommy played piano like a kid out in the rain
Then he lost his leg in Dallas, he was dancing with a train

They were all in love with dying, they were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche, coming down the mountain

Chorus:
I don't mind the sun sometimes, the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people's eyes

Some will die in hot pursuit in fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche, coming down the mountain
[Chorus]
Another Mikey took a knife while arguing in traffic
Flipper died a natural death, he caught a nasty virus
Then there was the ever-present football player rapist
They were all in love with dying, they were doing it in Texas
Polly caught a bullet but it only hit his leg
Well it should have been a better shot and got him in the head
They were all in love with dying, they were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche, coming down the mountain
[Chorus]

8 Circuits of Consciousness & OSI-Layers

The "8 Circuits of Consciousness model" is a heuristic model I include a lot on the blog, because I find it incredibly useful for navigating neurological space, aka consciousness, aka reality.

When still working in IT I had a job interview where I was asked if I knew the OSI-Layers Model. I did not, and learned it by heart. Of course, I never got asked about it again lol. I recently found out after 3 years of not thinking about it anymore I still knew it through my mnemonic. To me it fits quite well next to the 8 Circuits model. As it is an Open Systems Interconnection model, which basically means the inter-operating of "circuits". Same difference.

8 Circuits/Systems/Brains/States/Stages of Consciousness
1 Physical 2 Emotional 3 Rational 4 Social-Sexual
5 Neurosomatic 6 Neuroelectric 7 Neurogenetic 8 Cosmic

Note: The following will probably make no sense whatsoever if you're not familiar with the model already, but if ye were to read up on the 8 circuit model, it might provide some enlightenment later!

The OSI Layers are a model for computers network communication, and hilariously enough - I now realize with enough flexibility (maybe enormous flexibility) one can put them side by side if you consolidate circuit 7&8 into Application hehe.

The OSI Layers (Circuits)
1 Physical (Physical)
2 Datalink (Emotion link to data)
3 Network (Through Reason ;p A Network of Mental Maps)
4 Transport [Transport through Social realm - transfer between people,
Sexual Transport: transport is also a synonym for (sexual) Ecstasy or Rapture]

5 Session (Meditation session = Neurosomatic)
6 Presentation [Metaprogramming is (re-)Presenting the neuroelectric state]
7 Application (C7&8 the application of going DNA & Cosmic travelling)

Thanks for the lead Alex!
