Empire Of The Sun - Walking On A Dream


Empire Of The Sun - Walking On A Dream (from Ozstralia)

Walking on a dream. How can I explain.
Talking to myself. Will I see again.

We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out and out again
Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me

Is it real now when two people become one
I can feel it when two people become one

Thought I’d never see the love you found in me
Now it’s changing all the time
Living in a rhythm where the minutes working overtime

Catch me I’m falling down. Catch me I’m falling down.

Don’t stop just keep going on
I’m your shoulder lean upon
So come on deliver from inside
All we got is tonight that is right till first light

Star(gate) Trek DS9 Synchromystic Tidbits


Synchromystic tidbit fun time
Plenty to choose from here, after all this is the show featuring president Obama, I mean Commander Sisko who runs the space station DS9 after the CERN 'launch', I mean the discovery of a stable wormhole. There's a clear d and 9 in the CERN logo, and if you really want it to be there you can find an S. You have to admit, the image of the space station next to the logo is interesting too.

From the first episode Emissary synopsis:
Sisko finds that he has encountered entities in the wormhole who speak to him through images of his wife, friends, and crew members. The "wormhole entities" question Sisko's corporeal and linear existence, and explain that they become disrupted when such beings pass through the wormhole.
Sisko attempts to explain how his kind thrive on its linear existence, but the entities point out that he continues to return to the moment of his wife Jennifer's death. "You are here!" Sisko comes to the rationalization that he has been grieving over the loss of his wife and explains this to the aliens.

The wormhole entities could be any kind of entity one might encounter OBE through the stargate of 8th Circuit Neuroatomic consciousness. As the modus operandi of these wormhole entities is very reminiscent of certain altered states of the entheogenic kind; "What comes before now, is no different than what is now, or what is to come, it's one's existence."

Dax meditating, an exercise where you have to maintain the shape of some kind of energy ball. (1x04 A man alone).

Dr. Baltar & Dr. Bashir
Lookalikes! Thanks to BSG Baltar, I can finally stand Bashir and can now watch DS9 heh. The actor who plays Bashir, Alexander Siddig was originally Rick Berman's first choice to play Benjamin Sisko, the DS9 commander. Later his lookalike James Callis' character Baltar, also a doctor and womanizer, would become the president for a while in the new Battlestar Galactica.

Remember this post the Atomium Sync Trail, I saw this DS9 episode recently called "Move Along Home" (1x10), where some characters get trapped in a 'game'. One of the subgames is a game of replicating a hopskotch routine. (I also recently came across the Atomium/Tree of Life image on a magick book in a Red Knight comic book, which I will post here asap.)
Eye-in-Pyramid dice
Haha, it's just a game!

Interesting architecture on the Cardassian space station. (The Nagus 1x11)

Stargate Wormhole Action

For CK and Jake, a leprechaun Rumplestiltskin, oh well ;)
From the episode "If Wishes Were Horses" wherein an alien species tries to learn more about humanoid imagination by making it manifest in reality.

Odo, the shapeshifting Security Chief. When Odo finally finds his people, he finds out they are the leaders of the Dominion, a ruthless and militaristic state of the Gamma Quadrant. Interestingly, Odo is a name typically associated with historical figures from the Middle Ages and before, clerics and royals mostly. Odo is etymologically related to the names Otho and Otto, and to the French name Odon, and to the Italian names Ottone and Udo; all come from a Germanic word meaning "possessor of wealth".

Interesting Name

Hal Ozsan (Mr. Oz), plays the evil Cassidy in Kyle XY who was born, genetically enhanced, into some powerful technocratic secret society wouldn't you know it! In 2006, the actor played the fallen angel Azazel in ABC Family's 3 part mini-series Fallen.

Alien Sex 101, The Antonio Villas Boas Account

"Without speaking or kissing, they had sex, during which she growled like a dog."

"Whatever the genesis of such reports, we have to consider that folk have reported sexual contact with all manner of supernatural beings throughout history. Either the aliens have been conducting their beastly experiments for millennia, or such stories meet some deep-seated socio-psychological need. Until any solid medical evidence is provided, the latter hypothesis seems the more likely."

Social Perception Experiment: Violinist in the Metro

A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning.
He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that thousands of people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried up to meet his schedule.

A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping continued to walk.

A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace.
He collected $32.
When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it.
No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston and the seats average $100.

Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of an social experiment about perception, taste and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?
"My additional thoughts would only be that so many people do things because they are "fashionable" that they forget to look at things with their own eyes, listen with their own ears, and appreciate anything with their own hearts."

Ode to Jem

Jem is like a genius guerilla pop infiltrator with awakening positive tunes. Featured in the trailer of Reaper is the song "They" (Live) which has stunning lyrics for a pop song. She's from Wales and parodying Kylie Minogue stripping in the space-womb in this vid me thinks, and approves!


Jem - They (First vid here)
Who made up all the rules? We follow them like fools.
Believe them to be true, don't care to think them through.
And I'm sorry, so sorry. I'm sorry it's like this.
I'm sorry, so sorry. I'm sorry we do this.
And it's ironic too cause what we tend to do
Is act on what they say and then it is that way
And I'm sorry, so sorry. I'm sorry it's like this.
I'm sorry, so sorry. I'm sorry we do this.
Who are they? Where are they?
How can they possibly know all this?
Do you see what I see? Why do we live like this?
Is it because it is true that ignorance is bliss?
Who are they? Where are they?
How do they know all this?
And I'm sorry, so sorry. I'm sorry it's like this

Her first album was called "Finally Woken", on it is the surely Bill Hicks' inspired "It's just a Ride".


Jem: It's just a Ride

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
No need to run, no need to hide
It'll take you round and round
Sometimes you're up
Sometimes you're down

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
Don't be scared
Don't hide your eyes
It may feel so real inside
But don't forget it's just a ride

Vision!


Jem: Finally Woken (Lost video)

You see I've finally woken from a long sleep
I'm ready to jump, to make that blind leap
Coz I now believe (grr ;p) I have the power in me
I've got the faith baby I can truly be free



Jem: 24 (Ultraviolet video)

And I can't believe how I've been wasting my time
In 24 hours they'll be laying flowers on my life, it's over tonight
I'm not messing no I need your blessing
And your promise to live free please do it for me

Is there a heaven a hell and will I come back who can tell
Now I can see what matters to me it's as clear as crystal
The places I've been, the people I've seen
Plans that I made start to fade
The sun's setting gold thought I would grow old
It wasn't to be



Jem: It's amazing

All that you can do, now it's up to you!

Terence Mckenna: What is to be done? (Conclusion)

Another negative and this is a slightly more difficult to follow, requires a little- it's insidious: We shouldn't watch, watching is some kind of voyeuristic sadomasochistic peculiarity that we are permitting ourselves because we think there are too many of us to do, but I don't think this is true. I think watching is an incredibly disempowering thing. Millions of people live half awake larval lives watching six and a half hours of tv a day, and as long as they stay in their homes, you know, shopping by phone and fax, everybody is happy. But they participate not at all in the society. They're the marks and they consume. They consume the media, entertainment, the clothes, styles, the brands. They are the morons who are keeping this system running. And I assume that largely the people here tonight are not, we're the people who grind out all this stuff. I mean I feel I do this, I write books, I produce ideas, they are grist for the market place. Harper and Banton don't care what I'm saying, what they care about is how the books are selling. You know, product nr 32 45 A sub F how is it doing in the market place?

Do not watch, because when you're watching you're not at the center of things, largely what I'm talking about here is reclaiming experience. Reclaiming experience. This is what's been taken from us. This is why the new music and dance culture is so important, this is why drug culture is so important, this is why the celebration of sexual minorities is so important. This is all about coming to grips with who you really are, and how you really feel, and then experiencing it.

You know, you are not owned. It is not he or she or it that you belong to and we have been told that we have to fit in, we have to make sense... this is not true. We are creating a world that celebrates diversity, that celebrates the uniqueness of every person. The complexification of our species is a process directly dependant on the complexity that we each bring to the process, the diversity that is spreading through society is a concomitant to the boundary dissolution, and I really believe that science's inability to make sense of human beings in the world as part of nature, to make sense of our love, hate, aspiration, fear. The failure to make sense of this, is the failure to come to terms with the transcendental aspect of reality. We are the best evidence there is that something extraordinarily unusual is happening on this planet and that it's not something that will go on for millions of years.

It began about 20.000 years ago. It's a self-advancing, self-expanding, self-defining process and it takes no prisoners, you know. There is no going back, there is no going back from the momentum that history has imparted to the human imagination. There is only a going forward in what is called a forward escape through art, through design, through management and integration. We have to push the art pedal to the floor. We have never designed our society, we have never managed our societies or our lives, we have never tried to make what we were serve an aesthetic agenda, and that's why we've created a mess. In the absence of an aesthetic agenda, what we've created is Animal House on a global scale.

So now it's time to pay the piper. And just in closing, the catalyst now, is a combination of technology, solid state technologies and pharmacology. The world that we are leaving behind, the world that failed us was a world of ideologies and mechanical technologies, and the ideologies one by one are going down the tubes. Marxism, Freudianism, fascism, they one by one will be discredited. They cannot sustain, and the mechanical technologies cannot be sustained. They pollute, they dehumanize, they wreck the planet. What is coming into place is a world where drugs replace ideology. That's why drugs are so terrifying to those who oppose them. That's why they say: "You want to escape. You want to take drugs to escape!" That's right! You want to escape, you want to escape fascism, communism, socialism, existentialism, phenomenology, positivism. All of this stuff, you want to escape ideology into the felt presence of the body which means drugs and sex and syncopated music.

And... and parallel to this development and happening in different sectors of society, is the hardwiring of our imagination. The building of databases that we can access instantaneously that make the human past co-present with the now, the boundary dissolution that I'm talking about is the division between past, present and future. This is what it means to end Newtonian time. It means the past, the present and the future become a co-extensive domain, where everyone then awakenes to the fact which was always there to be observed. That there is not simply one past. There is nothing called the past. I have a past. You have a past. It's not the same past.

Consequently the future's we are going to are different. We create our own realitites as a species and as an individual and so what we are passing through here in the now, in this lecture, in the 20th centure is a moment of community. A gam, as melville would say, a gam is where 2 sailing, 2 whaling ships meet at sea. That's what we have here, a gam. A moment of dialogue, and then we each go back to our own private idahos. But the thing to take back to those private idahos, is that awareness that human history secures the central importance of human beings. We are part of a universal adventure. What happens to us decrees the fate of a vast set of universal processes and circumstances. we are not ephemeral, irrelevant, to each other or to the greater whole, this is the truth of psychedelics that aboriginal societies have always known and it's the truth that we have to sacrifice in order to make the prodigal journey into matter. But the prodigal journey into matter has now been concluded. We've found the top quark. We've shut down the super collider. Now we need to go back to the problesm of the human soul and there isn't much time, but the tools that have been put into our hands are the most powerful tools there have ever been.

The Gaian connection into the vegetable mind of the planet that we are trying to mirror and hardwire on a human scale. Nature is full of interest and affection for humanity, it's up to us to discover that humanity in ourselves. Because we have gone so sour along the rational path, and connected us with the bunch of the rest of nature. This is a process that is happening, it's a birth. It can go with ease because we help it from this side, or it can be traumatic because we resist and as McLuhan said, insist on driving the automobile's history using only the rear view mirror. That's no way to proceed, we need to wake up, smell the coffee, turn on the lights, get loaded and to direct the human future toward a mirroring of aspirations such that we are pleased then to turn the enterprise over to those who follow us.

Well, that's that I think... *audience laughter*

Terence McKenna: What is to be done? (First 3 steps)

"So what is to be done? I think the answer to this is not only nothing, but considerably less than nothing. *audience laughter* And what I mean by that is, that the real solutions to our problems lie in a series of negatives. Do not believe. Ideology has poisoned this planet. Ideology is bankrupt. It's a skin game. It's a shell game. It's only for marks. And marks! It is beneath your dignity as a body, to get mixed up in ideology. I mean after all, where is it written large that talking monkeys should understand the nature of being anyway?
So belief is an incredible copout on intellectual truth seeking, because belief precludes believing in its opposite. And so this is a self-limitation, you've become your own cog (/cop?), and the ideologies of the 20th century are so shoddy and hobbled together OR toxic to human values, they're not worth believing in anyway. So deconditioning ourselves from belief... some people call it cynicism, I call it good sense! I'm not a cynical person, but I know shit from shinola and I don't expect people who don't, to get a lot of respect from the rest of us...

OK, don't believe. The next thing which comes out of that and is an even stronger prohibition, don't follow. Following is a tasteless position to find yourself in. Pets follow, vice-presidents follow and bad acts follow. So why follow? All of these gurus, geishas, roshis and rishis are simply flim flam artists. They've had thousands of years to get these cons together and run them on you. Believe me I know I'm a recovering catholic. You have to fight your way free of belief, and then do not follow. Do not follow, it's an obsolete tasteless thing, and there's no human dignity in it whatsoever.

Then a harder one, a more radical one, the one that might get me shot. Do not in some profoundly metaphysical sense, consume. Do not consume. For obvious reasons, and then not so obvious reasons. The obvious reasons are that the fetish for objects made of matter is wrecking the planet. If everybody on Earth had what the people on the front row here have, there wouldn't be enough metal, glas, plastic and petroleum in the planet to provide that kind of lifestyle for the billions of people who now aspire it. None of this stuff brings happiness anyway. I recently had the experience of having my 75 Ford Grenada blow up on me in the middle of the night, and so I had to buy a new car. So I went down a year and up a brand and I got a 74 BMW and it cost me 2 grand. And I guarantee you once you have the little thing on the steering wheel, the quaternity sign, you don't need the 90.000 model. What we should all do, is buy antiques, don't consume anything which hasn't already been made.

There's a lot of shit that's been made going all over the place, I seen it in Manhattan going for a bundle. What we need to do you see, is re-tool our values, so that what is new is odious, tasteless, déclassé, embarassing, and not be found in the better homes. *audience laughter* The older things are, the better they are. Here's a 50 year old chair, fine. Here's a 500 year old chair, how much better! We need to cease to consume. And I'm somewhat facetious in suggesting that we all become aficionados of chippendale furniture and that sort of thing, that isn't the plan either. But the endless fetishism for consumer objects is wrecking the planet.

Jeugd van Tegenwoordig (Today's Youth) Symbolism


De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig: Buma in mijn Zak

Translated: Today's youth (Jeugd van Tegenwoordig): Buma in my pocket. Buma is the name of royalties artists get from airplay in the Netherlands, and means 'money and coke' in this song. Despite the next symbolism and the message of this song, this band has great original lyrics with a lot of made up dutch slang & really fun music in the "Netherhop" (dutch hip hop) scene.

Rising Sun
The Three lights of the band members converge, first as a triangle

Eye in Triangle pyramid manifests out of nothing

Capstone eye severs and lights up
even more
Their first album was called "Pearls for the Swine"

The second album "The Machine",
which apparently is the Ocean of Consciousness.
