Hey folks, haven't been posting much cause of all the holidays, the partying, the recuperating, the new guitar multi-pedal-thingy I got including a drum machine (I played the Roots Seed 2.0 with a buddy with his bass guitar yesterday, awesome), and I'm starting up an online therapy practice (nlp, hypnosis, etc) soon, more about that later! Here's some Danish Volbeat that I first heard on New Year's eve, which I celebrated gangsta motown style in suits and hats at a buddy's house.

Illuminati: The Board Game of Conspiracy

They're all around us. Secret conspiracies are everywhere, and where can you find the only truth? Certainly not in the game of Illuminati. Fnord.

The object of Illuminati is to take control of the world. The phone company is controlled by creatures from outer space. The Congressional Wives have taken over the Pentagon. And the Boy Sprouts are cashing in their secret Swiss bank account to smash the IRS! Two to six players compete to grab powerful groups and increase their wealth and power. No ploy is too devious, no stratagem too low, as you scheme your way to victory.

Here's an interesting dream I woke up from today... I'm trying out clothes in a store, I open the curtain and 2 robbers are standing in front of me. One gets out a taser, and I obviously ninja-deflect his present right back to him (seemed easy enough in the dream! And btw, my 'first' encounter with a taser ;p). They still get away somehow, and people in the street citizen-arrest them with handcuffs, the cop in civilian clothes wasn't too happy with that lol, but still appreciated it. When they're all gone, I go back in the store, which has changed into a candy shop. The girl offers me 2 pieces of candy, but I trip all over the boxes in front of the cash register desk and drop them. I get up and I take a shoe-lace candy string instead, and hold it like a kundalini going from root to third eye chakra with the slight bend at the top, and ask how much it is, she tells me: 11.11. I wake up right after that, and what time is it?... 11.11. What could all this possibly mean, I guess lightening up about any perceived attacks and deflecting if necessary, let others help, yet don't expect gifts but work towards your own evolution, and wake up! Heh.

2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved

The Hives - Hate to Say I Told You So (feat. Stargate)
Telegraph Article: "Looking back over my columns of the past 12 months, one of their major themes was neatly encapsulated by two recent items from The Daily Telegraph.

The first, on May 21, headed "Climate change threat to Alpine ski resorts" , reported that the entire Alpine "winter sports industry" could soon "grind to a halt for lack of snow". The second, on December 19, headed "The Alps have best snow conditions in a generation" , reported that this winter's Alpine snowfalls "look set to beat all records by New Year's Day".

Easily one of the most important stories of 2008 has been all the evidence suggesting that this may be looked back on as the year when there was a turning point in the great worldwide panic over man-made global warming. Just when politicians in Europe and America have been adopting the most costly and damaging measures politicians have ever proposed, to combat this supposed menace, the tide has turned in three significant respects...

Secondly, 2008 was the year when any pretence that there was a "scientific consensus" in favour of man-made global warming collapsed. At long last, as in the Manhattan Declaration last March, hundreds of proper scientists, including many of the world's most eminent climate experts, have been rallying to pour scorn on that "consensus" which was only a politically engineered artefact, based on ever more blatantly manipulated data and computer models programmed to produce no more than convenient fictions.
Wow. Read the rest of this Telegraph article: 2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved. I know, I couldn't believe it either. Truth, in mainstream media. Hell may be freezing over now that Global Warming is dying (ahum, wait and see). That'll teach the silly robots to believe the hype, now good luck at trying to get this through to people, media. I wonder how this will affect Obama's precious policies, btw, speaking of WITCH, this made me laugh too. I guess Al(l) Gore will have to make another movie, maybe something Truthy and Inconveniency related. Time for another song.

The Structure of Consciousness, Part One: Archetypes and Circuits

Check out this post from Druid Journal:
"This is the first of a series of posts on how human consciousness is structured. There are dozens of hypotheses from all over the world about how consciousness can be raised, lowered, changed, and so forth. In this series, I’d like to present some of my favorites: mythological archetypes, the Leary eight-circuit model, western astrology, the chakra system, Rudolf Steiner’s ideas, David Hawkins’s 12 levels of consciousness, and the Tarot. I’m going to describe them briefly and try to integrate them into a single model. (Then I’m going to try to run a 1.5-minute mile, fly to the moon, and cure cancer. Then I’ll have breakfast.) This is going to be challenging, but fun."

Milton H. Erickson and the Elevator

I don't know what pussy wrote this introduction on wikipedia, cause as a patient I'd take a shock like this any day, but here you go:
Erickson is famous for pioneering indirect techniques, but his shock therapy tends to get less attention, perhaps because it is uncomfortable for us to hear such uncharacteristic stories about an inspirational and gentle healer. Nonetheless, Erickson was prepared to use psychological shocks and ordeals in order to achieve given results:

"When the old gentleman asked if he could be helped for his fear of riding in an elevator, I told him I could probably scare the pants off him in another direction. He told me that nothing could be worse than his fear of an elevator.
The elevators in that particular building were operated by young girls, and I made special arrangements with one in advance. She agreed to cooperate and thought it would be fun. I went with the gentleman to the elevator. He wasn't afraid of walking into an elevator, but when it started to move it became an unbearable experience. So I chose an unbusy time and I had him walk in and out of the elevator, back in and out. Then at a point when we walked in, I told the girl to close the door and said, "Let's go up."
She went up one story and stopped in between floors. The gentleman started to yell, "What's wrong!" I said, "The elevator operator wants to kiss you." Shocked, the gentleman said, "But I'm a married man!" The girl said, "I don't mind that." She walked toward him, and he stepped back and said, "You start the elevator." So she started it. She went up to about the fourth floor and stopped it again between floors. She said, "I just have a craving for a kiss." He said, "You go about your business." He wanted that elevator moving, not standing still. She replied, "Well, let's go down and start all over again," and she began to take the elevator down. He said, "Not down, up!" since he didn't want to go through that all over again.
She started up and then stopped the elevator between floors and said, "Do you promise you'll ride down in my elevator with me when you're through work?" He said, "I'll promise anything if you promise not to kiss me." He went up in the elevator, relieved and without fear - of the elevator - and could ride one from then on."

The Incredible Pranayama Hulk (minor spoilers)

After the trainwreck that was the first movie, we finally get what we hoped for! In the Incredible Hulk, Edward Norton plays Bruce Banner, who uses meditation and pranayama breathing techniques to gain control over his anger, and his own mind. Control your own (hulk) body, control your own mind. I have an interesting relationship with anger myself and pranayama has helped me tremendously. Warning: Messing around with pranayama in an undisciplined manner can and will screw you up in ways that your doctor will not be able to help you with.

Here Bruce Banner was apparently meditating with a metronome (he's holding it).
"I can keep rhythm with no metronome, no metronome." Flobots (Handlebars)

After sparring with his martial arts teacher, it's time for more interesting exercises.

"Here, emotion (chest). Fear, no good. So emotion... and control (stomach).
The best way to control your anger, is to control your body. Control your pulse. Breathe."

Breathing from the chest is what most of us do, yet it's not optimal at all. Energy can stagnate because the circulation of breath is not what it has to be, for this we should breathe from below. In my times of mastery, I am always breathing from below. When someone complains to me about anything, I will always mention breathing when appropriate.
There are many forms of breathing exercises. Before meditation (optimal regiment is twice daily, morning and early evening), one can set a timer of ten minutes (wether in his mind or on a clock, or add a noise at the tenth minute of any meditation music) and breathe slowly in through the stomach, hold for a while, then release completely. Doing this in a relaxed manner (not forced at all), can help to calm you down tremendously no matter where you are. It stills the mind and is a great meditation beginner. If you want to go further, you can visualise a small light going from your perineum, up the spine, to your third eye (not the crown!).

Here the teacher does a small demonstration of the real life technique called "Breath of fire", for beginners, you breathe in completely, and then you take one or two minutes to pump air in and out with brute force, after two minutes, you relax and breathe relaxed and normal again, this is a prana(yama) or chi building exercise and a nervous system clearing exercise, during this exercise we can visualise ourselves fill with light and see that light break through energy blockages. Needless to say, you get a li'l high, hehe.

Control of the mind, control of the body, control of the pulse, control of... meditate and find out.

In the end we see Banner meditating again, with my favorite mudra.

He's finished and the hands open, btw, no metronome in sight.

A stretching of the muscles.

Looks like Banner's meditations have payed off, those are green eyes,
and he now can call on his power through his will.

Herman van Veen - Toveren

This is a classic dutch magic(k)al song, it all rhymes in dutch, translating it literally and still having it rhyme was impossible but I gave it a go, failed miserably throughout lol, but people can try to sing along in english :p, or improve upon it. Dutch lyrics here.

If he knew wizardry
everything'd be fine
If he knew wizardry
everyone'd be divine (literal: nobody'd get too heavy :p)
If he knew wizardry, knew wizardry,
knew wizardry, knew wizardry
then everybody would love each other

Every house had a 100 rooms and every room had tv
and his parents lived forever, and so did he
the river wasn't made of water, but of orange juice
and he shouldn't have to learn what he didn't choose

If he knew wizardry
everything'd be fine (and nobody was hungry)
If he knew wizardry
everyone'd be divine (and everybody singing)
If he knew wizardry, knew wizardry
knew wizardry, knew wizardry
then everybody would love each other

His buddy would suddenly understand
why he got into a fight with him
and as he climbed the trone
everyone would bow for him
and it always snowed in winter
and it was cosy warm
and nobody was born rich
and nobody became poor

If he knew wizardry
everything'd be fine (and nobody was hungry)
If he knew wizardry
everyone'd be divine (and everybody singing)
If he knew wizardry, knew wizardry
knew wizardry, knew wizardry
then everybody would love each other

But for a magic spell of quality
you lose a 1000 guilder casually
and for a bit of a magick book
a search of 50 years is what it took
and the entire curriculum of wizardry
lasts 125 years at least
he won't put up with all of that
I think he'll quit before he starts
cause even the grandma of his grandma
never had a wizardry diploma.

If I knew wizardry
everything'd be fine (and nobody was hungry)
If I knew wizardry
everyone'd be divine (and everybody singing)
If I knew wizardry, knew wizardry
knew wizardry, knew wizardry
then everybody would love each other

HOWMusic(k) Blog

Check out this fascinating blog, HOWMusic(k) at
That "Music(k)" spelling, I find just pure genius heh! Here's the FAQ to seduce you:

Hello and Welcome to the Hidden Origins of Western Music(k) blog!

Does comparative symbolism bring humans any closer to “Truth”? By engaging in “synchromystic” analysis am I making progress towards something of value or am I just contributing more chaos to the world? These questions flow through my mind and I reflect upon WHY I started this website, WHAT I want to achieve, and HOW I set out to achieve it.

1. Why - I started this blog because I love music and because I am a composer of music. Over time I have become curious about the reason that I was taught to limit myself to the 12-Tone system. Rather than rebelling and rejecting Tonal Harmony, as many young composers do, I chose to look closer into its structure. I began to look around for meaningful clues regarding the “hidden origins” of Western Music.

For some reason, no information that I read in books or online could quite “scratch the itch” of this mystery. It is up to me, then, to clearly articulate the core questions regarding Western musical symbolism and try to answer them for myself. No one else can or will do it for me.

Music is universal to every culture, it potentially inspires a sense of awe and magical beauty, generating love and connection between humans. I noticed that it has lately been used in the mainstream as a tool for separation and thoughtlessness, encouraging mindless behavior and militaristic aggression (blastbeats?). Who is behind this force? Is toxic music the byproduct of toxic composers?


2. What I want to achieve: We can take back our power by unplugging from preconditioned ideas of what music is (and what it is not). This has already been taking place for several decades and I am simply a link in the chain. Some theorists have brought into my awareness the thoughtful use of Noise and Silence as an alternative to the Western system of Tonality.

Today, musical conventions in the Western world are still based on 12-Tone subdivision of the Octave - Guitar, Bass, piano… Percussion is based on halves (whole/half/quarter/eight) and triplets (3/6/9/12). In both cases we’re dealing with eight and twelve, which are what I would call “loaded numbers”.

I apologize upfront for any miscommunications that take place over the course of this blog… My research is not infallible, nor am I coming to this information with an exhaustive understanding of mythology, psychology, conspiracy, ufology, and the rest of it. What I offer, for free, is the daily research I do into the mystery of Life from a musical perspective.

3. How I do it - Synchromysticism - COMPARING… SYMBOLS… TO… EACH… OTHER…

Mythology, Alternative History, Friendly Secret Societies, Alien Technology, Structural Hierarchy, Pop Culture and Metaphysics all share common symbolic components: Words, Letters, Numbers, Lines, Color, Complex patterns… Music Notes, Chords, and Rhythms are no less an intimate part of this symbol set. Can ideas of harmonious balance between these symbolic components of the whole be separated from theories of Musical Harmony? Of course not…

Finally, I welcome all synchronauts and metaphysicians to join in on this comparative music(k)ological research.

“”Now, make no mistake, any idiot can do ‘free association’ just as anyone can bang on the keys of the piano. But that’s a far cry from actually being able to make harmonious music out of it - be it musical instruments or conceptual associations/coincidences.” -

Rudolf Steiner

I'm reading An Outline of Occult Science by Rudolf Steiner, who was an Austrian philosopher, literary scholar, educator, artist, playwright, social thinker, and esotericist. He was the founder of Anthroposophy, Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, anthroposophical medicine, and the new artistic form of Eurythmy. He characterized anthroposophy as follows:
Anthroposophy is a path of knowledge, to guide the spiritual in the human being to the spiritual in the universe…. Anthroposophists are those who experience, as an essential need of life, certain questions on the nature of the human being and the universe, just as one experiences hunger and thirst.

Steiner advocated a form of ethical individualism, to which he later brought a more explicitly spiritual component. He derived his epistemology from Johann Wolfgang Goethe's world view, where “Thinking… is no more and no less an organ of perception than the eye or ear. Just as the eye perceives colours and the ear sounds, so thinking perceives ideas.”

From his decision to "go public" in 1899 until his death in 1925, Steiner articulated an ongoing stream of experiences that he claimed were of the spiritual world — experiences he said had touched him from an early age on. Steiner aimed to apply his training in mathematics, science, and philosophy to produce rigorous, verifiable presentations of those experiences.

Steiner believed that through freely chosen ethical disciplines and meditative training, anyone could develop the ability to experience the spiritual world, including the higher nature of oneself and others. Steiner believed that such discipline and training would help a person to become a more moral, creative and free individual - free in the sense of being capable of actions motivated solely by love.

This is an interesting chapter from An Outline of Occult Science: Sleep and death.

To truly know the world, look deeply within your own being; to truly know yourself, take real interest in the world.

“A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living”

“What is necessary to keep providing good care to nature has completely fallen into ignorance during the materialism era.”

“All of nature begins to whisper its secrets to us through its sounds. Sounds that were previously incomprehensible to our soul now become the meaningful language of nature.”

“The occultist sees in the man of today a being in the full swing of evolution. Man is at the same time a fallen God and a God in the becoming.”

“Materialism has cast man into such depths that a mighty concentration of forces is necessary to raise him again. He is subject to illnesses of the nervous system which are veritable epidemics of the life of the soul.”

“The occultist sees in the man of today a being in the full swing of evolution. Man is at the same time a fallen God and a God in the becoming.”

“May my soul bloom in love for all existence.”

“Knowledge of life in the astral world leads us to a conclusion of fundamental importance, namely that the physical world is the product of the astral world.”

Belgian Government collapses!

Not that there was much governing going on, it took them a record 194 days to form an unstable interim-government. But after Belgium's supreme court said it had found "significant signs" (but no hard evidence) that the government had tried to influence judges ruling on the bail-out and sale of bank and insurer Fortis, it was finally lights out for the poly-tic(ian)s.

Sigmund Freud on Words & Magic

"Words and magic were in the beginning one and the same thing, and even today words retain much of their magical power. By words one of us can give another the greatest happiness or bring about utter despair; by words the teacher imparts his knowledge to the student; by words the orator sweeps his audience with him and determines its judgments and decisions. Words call forth emotions and are universally the means by which we influence our fellow-creatures."
Sigmund Freud

Iceland's Elves

Sages and Legends in Iceland are full of trolls, elves, outlaws, spirits, afturgangas (zombies), bloodthirsty women, viking kings and gods and heroes from the North-German Mythos.

Especially elves are treated with great respect. Roads are diverted specifically around famous elven hills. For example the road between the Kópavogur sporting facility and church is called Álfshólsvegur (Elfhillroad). In Grundarfjördur between the houses numbered 82 and 86, there is a standalone elf rock. So the hidden people live at Grundargata 84! (source)

And from the wiki: According to a 2005 New York Times article: "Building in Iceland? Better Clear It With the Elves First", the majority of Icelanders either believe in elves or are unwilling to rule out their existence. Even today, roads have been re-routed and building plans redesigned or abandoned to avoid disturbing rocks where elves are said to live. Bonus.
