Daily Dedroidify: Mind Techniques

Daily Dedroidify: Mind Techniques

A page I started but never finished about Paraliminal & Binaural tech, Hypnosis and NLP. I'll try to fix that soon and will repost it then.

Here's an interesting text about hypnosis. For more on the above topics (but not that much or useful info, will try to add more soon), please click the article link.

How hypnosis got eclipsed in psychology:
"The young Sigmund Freud studied with Liebault and Bernheim at the Nancy School and initially used hypnosis in his practice. In the end, Freud stopped using hypnosis. The reason declared publicly was that a young female patient had jumped up and kissed him. Freud professed to be shocked and concluded that hypnosis was far too volatile to use. The little known history of hypnosis records a different reason why Freud stopped using hypnosis: his cocaine usage had ruined his gums, and his false teeth did not fit well, causing him not to speak well enough to induce trance easily.

In competition with an excellent hypnotist named Breuer, Freud invented 'talking therapy.' Freud said that his talking therapy would not be a therapy for the poor. It would take 100 to 300 hours to effect a cure. His talking therapy became psychoanalysis and this changed the history of European psychology. Freudian psychoanalysis became the rage in psychology and it became inappropriate to use any other techniques. Consequently, hypnosis was eclipsed."
From Tad James' Hypnosis: A Comprehensive Guide - Producing Deep Trance Phenomena

"All successful communication is hypnosis."
Milton H. Erickson

about NLP: "It's not a therapy group, it's a training session - if you want to go to therapy, well, we can recommend some therapists who are very reliable, why some of their clients have seen them for 20 and 30 years." :p

Osama Bin Laden Found Inside Each Of Us (old but good :p)

Parody News Source The Onion's Osama Bin Laden Found Inside Each Of Us

"I know this classified information may be hard to hear," Bush said. "But I urge each and every American to perform a covert search of his or her own soul. Join me in quiet self-examination and self-interrogation. Ferret out the terrorist inside you and bring him to harsh and swift justice. Together, we can topple the last major stronghold of terror in this world: our own doubts and fears."

Little China Girl

China deploys missiles to protect Olympics.

Lol! I thought Missiles blew shit up! I wonder what the hell they have planned for 08.08.08, check out these interesting comments, with people on this planet so easily polarized, starting WW3 should be easy:

China set an excellent example for West.China is on a right track to arise,some China -hatred-filled guys are so poor-educated,they should learn more from China,and Chinese history.They should read Chinese books like Sunzi Tactics,and ancient Chinese historical stories,then they'll know China better
Donoghue , Lasa , Xizang (Please let us know where we can find that propaganda you speak of)

---" crack down on its critics even harder than usual".
I'm eager to see how UK handle Muslim in 2012 Olympic. I often feel amazed at the double standard of West that, when fighting West, Muslim are terrorists but when making trouble to China, they suddenly become freedom fighter. LOL
hgao, Beijing, (lol good points, and good you have your excuses ready)

Exactly how are these missiles going to be used against a suicide bomber with an explosive belt? Possibly the Chinese are a little new to terrorism defence.
CA, Manchester, UK (by killing them and everyone around it. maybe a self-destruct button in the stadium would be more efficient!)

Western,watch and learn.
Han Runfeng, Baoding,Hebei Province, China (oeh, is he in the know? ;p)

Why bash China, have you ever been there?It has no democracy but neither do we in Europe, we have unelected bureaucrats running the EU and ignoring the people.Lets fix our own system and then we can advise other countries what they are doing wrong.
joe, Edinburgh, Scotland (How about we criticize all the crazy shit on this planet? Before it gets crazier?)

Hongqi-7 they work ? I used to say about the USSR....don't be afraid if ever they have to fire their missiles or fly their combat aircraft....we have won right from the start. I always said if they fired a missiled the odds of it falling on their own heads were 99 to 1 !
E. Bee, Toulouse, France (lol, maybe the missiles will explode fluffy bunnies)

AT&T Whistleblower: Spy Bill Creates 'Infrastructure for a Police State'

Mark Klein, the retired AT&T engineer who stepped forward with the technical documents at the heart of the anti-wiretapping case against AT&T, is furious at the Senate's vote on Wednesday night to hold a vote on a bill intended to put an end to that lawsuit and more than 30 others.
[Wednesday]'s vote by Congress effectively gives retroactive immunity to the telecom companies and endorses an all-powerful president. It’s a Congressional coup against the Constitution.

The Democratic leadership is touting the deal as a "compromise," but in fact they have endorsed the infamous Nuremberg defense: "Just following orders." The judge can only check their paperwork. This cynical deal is a Democratic exercise in deceit and cowardice.

Sometimes I wonder what is taking them so long, it's obviously very easy to take over a planet :p

Alan Watt Rejects the Alien Agenda Disinformation

Alan Watt Rejects the Alien Agenda Disinformation

I'm not a big fan of Alan Watt concerning his thoughts on consciousness, but I kinda agree with what he's saying in this vid. Though who knows, what if he's not being completely truthful? I've heard him fear mongering and being ignorant if not spreading disinfo too. Sheesh :p What if everyone's disinfo? :p Only trust your own research, and even then!

I liked this quote from the youtube comments:
I actually had tsarions first book. In the end he tells you that we sould all help to strengthen the "earth energy field". The earth could then "in her own mysteries ways" defeat the aliens.

I thought "Instead of praying to jesus/the sun we are now praying to gaia/the earth. Instead of waiting for jesus to save us, we are now waiting for gaia to save us."

After i read that i threw his book into the garbage can and started to listen to Alan Watt.

Star Trek First Contact

Thanks to The Secret Sun I felt like watching First Contact again. Check out Chris his screencaps at Redicecreations too

The movie First Contact is inherently about Time Travel, isn't that interesting?
Well not so much for me, cause I freaking cringed when I remembered this about the movie, I just don't like time travel plots (just go back in time and try again if it doesn't work). But thanks to Synchromysticism, I even watched all Back to the Future's again, so here goes:

The movie starts zooming out Picard's Eye, and the poor baby has a bad dream about the Borg.
The admiral calls in and Picard is not allowed to help fight the Borg who are invading 'the federation space' ("Do you have a flag?" Eddie Izzard) because he used to be assimilated for a while and the Military Command at Starfleet didn't like that too much. They listen on the radio and hear their fleet losing against a Borg Cube close to Earth. Can't have none of that and they speed to Earth no matter what. No problemo really cause the Admiral's ship got blown up by the Borg anyway.

The Cube explodes thanks to Picard's collective unconscious link to the Borg which tells him a weakness to fire upon with the entire fleet. It works and a Borg Sphere catapults out of the Cube into a temporal wave and the Enterprise gets caught in this wave too. (The Enterprise gets caught in a temporal wave. A Timewave Enterprise? :p Maybe a Kali Yuga happening? The Secret plan. Remember Annuit Coeptis on the dollar bill? Which means He approves (or has approved) [our] undertakings, or Enterprise.)

The vortex is collapsing and they see Earth suddenly is Borg territory with 9 billion drones. So they follow the sphere back in time to undo the Borg's actions.

They destroy it asap. Hmmm, that's not a moon! That's a spacestation! And the Star Trek Death Star explodes close to earth in an initial greeny glow.

They go to Earth and help the people, some are hurt because of the short space battle.
"Please, no lectures about the prime directive, I'll keep her unconscious." says Dr Beverly Crusher to Captain Picard. It's possible a lot of galactic SHIT is because nobody gives a damn about the prime directive.

Hey whattaya know they find Dr. Zephyr Cochran, who invented warp drive, what are the odds.

Zephyr: 1. The west wind. A gentle breeze. 2. Any of various soft light fabrics, yarns, or garments. 3. Something that is airy, insubstantial, or passing.

"Fly away on my zephyr - I feel it more then ever - And in this perfect weather - Well find a place together - Fly on my wing - In the water where the scent of my emotion - All the world will pass me by - Fly away on my zephyr - We're gonna live forever - Forever" RHCP

Cochran: Locality. Cocrinn, Gaelic, a point or promontory in open sight; from Coc, manifest, plain, and rinn, a cape or promontory.

Or if you like to keep it more simple: THE COCK THAT RAN, and the Phallic Symbol Warp Rocket is called... the Phoenix, no shit, didn't see that coming!

"It is a historical irony that Dr. Cochran would choose an instrument of mass destruction to inaugurate an era of peace." Data
Hmm, Order out of chaos? You mean like Pearl Harbor/The two atom bombs to start the end of WW2? Or 9/11, 7/7 and 3/11 to bring about a New World Order? Or *insert numerous examples here* Yes, historical irony indeed.

When Picard and Data are bonding - picard talks to Data - who is evolving to become more human with his emo-chip - about how touching an object makes it seem more real - they rather disturbingly start stroking the rocket (phallic symbol)
Troy: Should I leave you three alone? :p

27.28 gratuitous eye in triangle shot. Woot!

Cochran toasts to the Phoenix with Troy:
"May she rest in peace." (the female cock (adrogyny?) will rise from the ashes anyway)

When a crew member who just got assimilated by the borg calls to Picard for help, he kills him out of mercy. It's also rather advised to not add another borg drone to the already infested ship.

The borg stopped assimilating the enterprise at deck 11. What is on deck 11?! asks Worf: Hydroponics! Stellar cartography, deflector control, all vital systems. Crap!

"They would not have stopped there until it gave them a tactical advantage!" Duh Worf.

Let's use the 8 Circuit model and see how these have been used throughout hisStory:
Hydroponics: Nourishment, Altered States of Consciousness (Circuit 1 & 5-8)
Stellar Cartography: Astrotheology crafting religions, submit + divide & conquer tools. (c1, 2 & 4)
Deflector Control: Language (Lies) (c3 and 1, 2 & 4 too to an extent)
And All Vital Systems: The economic, financial, political & other Cyst-ems (c1,2,3 & 4!)
Just throwing it out there.

Here's a fascinating conversation between Data, the Ship's Android (DOES THIS PICTURE MAKE ME LOOK LIKE CRUCIFIED JESUS/SOLAR REPRESENTATIVE?) and the Borg Queen:

Data: Who are you?
Queen: I am the borg.
Data: That is a contradiction, the borg has a collective consciousness, there are no individuals.
Queen: I am the beginning, the end, the one who is many... I am the borg.

Data: Greetings... (lol) I'm curious, do you control the borg collective?
Queen: You imply disparity where none exists, I am the collective.
Data: Perhaps I should rephrase the question, I wish to understand the organizational relationships. Are you their leader?
Queen: I bring order to chaos.
Data: An interesting if cryptic response.

Queen: You are in chaos Data, you are the contradiction, a machine who wishes to be human.
Data: Since you seem to know so much about me, you must be aware that I am programmed to evolve, to better myself.
Queen: We too are on a quest to better ourselves, evolving towards a state of perfection.
Data: Forgive me, but borg do not evolve, they conquer.
Queen: By assimilating other beings into our collective, we are bringing them closer to perfection.
Data: Somehow I question your motives.
Queen: That's because you haven't been properly stimulated yet.

Data: *acts weird* you have reactivated my emotion chip, why?
Queen: Don't be frightened.
Data: I'm not frightened.
Queen: Do you know what this is Data?
Data: It appears you are attempting to graft organic skin onto my endoskeleton structure.
Queen: What a cold description for such a beautiful gift. *blows on it softly*
*Data twists and turns*
Queen: Was that good for you?
Data: Ooh :p

Blowing back life into the crucified sun/son of god? Using it for your purposes? I dunno, I'm just an amateur folks.

Meanwhile Picard is on the Enterprise with a woman from the old Earth space time who escaped from Sickbay (why the hell not call it Healthbay or Healing bay or something) while the Borg were attacking there.

Woman: How much did this thing cost? (The Enterprise)
Picard: Economics of the future are somewhat different, you see money doesn't exist in the 24th century.
Woman: No money, you mean you don't get payed?
Picard: The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives, we work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity. (Sounds a lot like Jacque Fresco's The Venus Project!)

Later they encounter Borg and Picard and the woman go to a holodeck to trick them.

"Doubt that even a holographic bullet can kill!" says Picard about the reality of the illusion (or the illusion of reality) after he kills 2 borg on the holodeck with the safety protocols switched off. He rather enjoyed firing the machine gun and the woman had to calm him the f down. Chill out old man, they're dead, ok?

Geordi La Forge says to Cochran he's standing exactly where his statue was to be built, with him reaching out to the sky, Roman/Hitler salute like?
(don't forget the Pledge of Allegiance in the states used to use this too :p, and this link also talks about the borg, synchydoo! Check it out, it's good.) It's a military thang or sumsum.

Back to Data and the Queen. Btw if you happen to have thought of the Queen of England, good, I heard she's a crazy b* too.

Data to Borg Queen:
"Believing one's self to be perfect is often a sign of a delusional mind." (oh snap)

Then Data's skin gets hurt by the Borg and Data says:
"My programming was not designed to process these sensations!"
Were we humans designed to undergo all this BS we've had to cope with during the entire HisStory? (Considering possible genetic engineering origins that question is unintentionally tragically hilarious...)

The Borg are trying to convert the Enterprise to Borg technology and are outside building a beacon right on top of the Particle Emitter! That's not nice according to space etiquette, or so I've heard. Especially if the contraption has some sacred Stargate symbolism.

To get rid of the borg they'll have to release 3 mag(netic) locks, because shooting the particle emitter would be kinda stupid, wouldn't it? Not that I know what a particle emitter is.

Hey it's Tin Man (Neal McDonough, from the Sci-fi channel's reimagined Wizard of Oz mini-series called Tin Man) called Lieutenant Hawk here [btw, Lieutenant, is just someone 'holding tenants in place of' (lieu=place, french), oeh some title], he gets lifted up by a borg before being able to release his mag lock. Picard releases his magnetic boots and jumps across the Stargate floor, and releases the last mag lock and there go the borg and their device into space.

But Hawk, is turned into a borg (Tin Man, hellooo - plus he's not part of the original 'nine' (check my Enneads post here and I found this Atlantean Times post in the archives too) so you know he gonn' die) and tries to kill Picard but Worf shoots him into space and also shoots the borg device that was floating along.
"Assimilate this" says Worf with his Klingon whit and blasts it into pieces.

Thanks to Chris from Secret Sun for pointing out the solar struggle in the assimilation of Lt. Hawk. Hawk resonates with Horus and Ra, the Sun Gods (so does the falcon), so Hawk could be 'standing in' (remember lieutenant) for Riker (Ra-Horus resonator according to Chris) who's on the surface of Earth. And the Borg being a symbol of technocracy & the hive mind (the borg collective, the unimatrix) symbolizing the consensus reality illusion served to disway us from the 2012 solar sunspot activated stargate paradigm consciousness shift!?

Horus died from the sting of a Scorpion, the Borg have nanoprobes coming out of tubules from their hand, stinging the future assimilated ones like a Scorpion - same which happened to Lt. Hawk. 'Scorpion' was also a double episode of Star Trek Voyager where the crew had to work together with the Borg in Operation Scorpion to battle a new threat ("I couldn't help it," said the scorpion. "It's my nature."). The episodes introduced Seven of Nine into the series & Species 8472 (the threat, more about them later!).

Cochran meanwhile finally reveals the reason of his reluctance (and jackass-ness) towards the enterprise crew, he was motivated to build warp tech... for money. The unlikely hero...
Riker reacts by saying "someone once said 'don't try to be a great man, just be a man and let history make its own judgements.'" (sounds a lot like recent Neo-Con shit don't it?!)
Cochran: "Rethorical nonsense, who said that?"
Riker: "You did, ten years from now." Unpredictability isn't the movie's strong point.

Picard to contemporary woman: Six years ago they assimilated me into their collective, I had their cybernetic devices implanted throughout my body, i was linked to the hive mind, every trace of individuality erased, I was one of them, so you can imagine my dear I have a somewhat unique perspective on the borg and I know how to fight them. (this applies to all of you and our own 'borg' presence, the cybernetic devices can be the belief systems, 'medicins', 'vaccines' and products.)

Woman: It's simple, the borg hurt you and now you're gonna hurt them back. Captain Ahab has to go hunt his whale!
Picard: This is about saving the future of humanity!
Woman: Jean-Luc, blow up the damn ship!
Picard: No! Nooooooo! *breaks glass case with enterprise models*

(oops, wrong star saga! Again!)

Picard: I will not sacrifice 'the enterprise!' I've made too many comprimises already, too many retreats, they invade our space and we fall back, they assimilate entire worlds and we fall back, not again, the line must be drawn here, this far no further. I will make them pay for what they've done!
Woman: ...You broke your little ships, see you around Ahab.

Picard: "And he piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the rage and hate felt by his whole race. If his chest had been a cannon, he would have shot his heart upon it."
[The actual quote by Melville in Moby Dick reads,
"He piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart's shell upon it."]

Picard: Ahab's quest for vengeance in the end destroyed him and his ship.
Woman: I guess he didn't know when to quit...

Picard comes to his senses (he called Worf a coward, so you know he wasn't thinking straight!)
Prepare to evacuate the enterprise!

Crusher: so much for the Enterprise E (the fifth age). Do you think they'll build a new one?
Picard: Plenty of letters left in the alphabet.

Picard stands alone on the bridge like a true captain while the rest abandons ship, but through the borg collective unconscious assimilated Data calls to him.

Meanwhile, purely coincidental of course, on Earth the Phoenix Rises.

While the Triangle Exodus from the Enterprise is taking place. They look like coffins or sarcophaguses (or piano's :p) while departing from the enterprise.

Then the final battle takes place with Picard finding the Queen and Data.

Borg Queen to Picard: You can still hear our song.
Picard: I remember you, that ship and all the borg on it were destroyed!
Queen: You think in such 3 dimensional terms, how small you've become... (ouch! Where's our multidimensional awareness ppl? Activate Right-Brain practices!)

Quick skip back to the rising Phoenix:
"Sweet Jesus!" says Cochran as he sees the Enterprise maneuvres in front of the Sun (Jesus, Sun of God) from the Phoenix cockpit. I'm sure that stargate on the side is just sitting there for fun.

Geordi and Riker are joining Cochran on the first supposed Warp flight of human civilisation to make first contact with the Vulcans, the past steers the future as much as the future steers the past? Or has time travel always been connected with space travel? Extradimensionality?

Back to the end battle: Data rebels against the new Borg BS: "Resistance is futile!" and destroys a tube-thingy with a warp-vent-thingy (? :p) coming out of it, and Data drags the Queen away from Picard, into the warp-vent thingy and her skin can't take that stuff apparently.

I guess that means the system will have to be beaten from within, let's hope at least a few people already in the illuminati circles will finally choose bravery instead of cowardice.

The Queen has an endoskeleton skull & spine that resembles the one from terminator 3 or the Sarah Connor Chronicles, Picard snaps the spine in two and it powers off, kundalini broken.

Data: Strange, part of me is sorry she's dead
Picard: She's unique
Data: She brought me closer to humanity than I ever thought possible and for a time I was tempted by her offer.
Picard: How long a time?
Data: 0.68 seconds sir, for an android, that is nearly an eternity.

First contact is attained with the vulcans, their ship kinda looks like a Cylon base star (from new Battlestar Galactica). I heard the X is a solar symbol, so this could be the 'Secret' Sun descending, though I have no idea really.

"Live long and prosper." plus the handsign, (check out this origins link.)

Cochran gives him a handshake, "Thanks".

Picard: Mr. Data lay in a course for the 24th century, I suspect our future is there waiting for us.
Data: Course laid in sir.
Picard: Make it so!

Cochran turns on his ridiculous Scooby Dooby or whatever music to amuse the Vulcans (after all, music, vibration is all, or something) and the movie ends.

Coming soon: Species 8472!

Daily Dedroidify: The point of Samsara?

Daily Dedroidify: The point of Samsara?

Why impartiality?

There's no such thing as friends and enemies, these are imaginary concepts that actually don't describe anything.

An illustration of this point:

Katayana once saw a man sitting in front of his house, holding a small child in his lap, eating some fish and feeding the child, and throwing the bones on the ground. There was a dog that was trying to get the remaining fish flesh off the bones and the man was kicking the dog away cause it was bothering him.

When Katayana used his super-cognition to see what the karmic precedents of all this were, he realized that the child in the man's lap had in his previous life been that man's worst enemy, in other words that man's enemy in this life had died and been reborn as his child because of the karmic debt.

The fish that they were eating, was the father's father who had been reborn as a fish. And the dog that the man was kicking was his mother who had been reborn as a dog.

So Katayana said about this:
"He's eating his dad, he's kicking his mom, he's cuddling his worst enemy... there's no point what so ever to samsara."

Terry Pratchett Quotes

I'd rather be a climbing ape than a falling angel.

Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree.

Brave men make good soldiers, but cowards make better strategists.

Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be wrong.

Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.

Genius is always allowed some leeway, once the hammer has been pried from its hands and the blood has been cleaned up.

He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards."

In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

As for The Mapp... I suspect it'll never get a US publication. It seemed to frighten US publishers. They don't seem to understand it. That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans:
A European says: I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?
An American says: I can't understand this, what's wrong with him?
I make no suggestion that one side or other is right, but observation over many years leads me to believe it is true.

Life doesn't happen in chapters— at least, not regular ones. Nor do movies. Homer didn't write in chapters. I can see what their purpose is in children's books ("I'll read to the end of the chapter, and then you must go to sleep") but I'm blessed if I know what function they serve in books for adults. (on the lack of chapters in DiscWorld books)

It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.

It's not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewere, would much rather you weren't doing.

Imagination, not intelligence, made us human.

Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.

Wikipedia, eh? Must be accurate then!

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.

Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don't find out til too late that he's been playing with two queens all along.

Never trust any complicated cocktail that remains perfectly clear until the last ingredient goes in, and then immediately clouds.

I don't like the place at all. It's all wrong. An imposition on the Landscape. I reckon that Stonehenge was build by the contemporary equivalent of Microsoft, whereas Avebury was definitely an Apple circle.

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Sometimes it is better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.

Sooner or later we're all someone's dog.

Taxation is just a sophisticated way of demanding money with menaces.

The intelligence of the creature known as a crowd, is the square root of the number of people in it.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

The truth may be out there, but lies are inside your head.

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

Writing is the most fun you can have by yourself.

'They can ta'k our lives but they can never ta'k our freedom!' Now there's a battle cry not designed by a clear thinker...

Go on, prove me wrong. Destroy the fabric of the universe. See if I care.

Oh, come on. Revelation was a mushroom dream that belonged in the Apocrypha. The New Testament is basically about what happened when God got religion.

What your soldier wants-- really, really wants -- is no-one shooting back at him.

You can't trample infidels when you're a tortoise. I mean, all you could do is give them a meaningful look.

You can’t make people happy by law. If you said to a bunch of average people two hundred years ago “Would you be happy in a world where medical care is widely available, houses are clean, the world’s music and sights and foods can be brought into your home at small cost, travelling even 100 miles is easy, childbirth is generally not fatal to mother or child, you don’t have to die of dental abcesses and you don’t have to do what the squire tells you” they’d think you were talking about the New Jerusalem and say ‘yes’.

I think that sick people in Ankh-Morpork generally go to a vet. It's generally a better bet. There's more pressure on a vet to get it right. People say "it was god's will" when granny dies, but they get angry when they lose a cow.

Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil... prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...

I staggered into a Manchester bar late one night on a tour and the waitress said "You look as if you need a Screaming Orgasm". At the time this was the last thing on my mind...

I didn't go to university. Didn't even finish A-levels. But I have sympathy for those who did.

I must confess the the activities of the UK governments for the past couple of years have been watched with frank admiration and amazement by Lord Vetinari. Outright theft as a policy had never occurred to him.

Have a bit more patience with newbies. Of course some of them act dumb -- they're often students, for heaven's sake.

Too many people want to have written.

Suicide was against the law. Johnny had wondered why. It meant that if you missed, or the gas ran out, or the rope broke, you could get locked up in prison to show you that life was really very jolly and thoroughly worth living.

DiscWorld is based on a slew of old myths, which reach their most 'refined' form in Hindu mythology, which in turn of course derived from the original Star Trek episode 'Planet of Wobbly Rocks where the Security Guard Got Shot'.

They called themselves the Munrungs. It meant The People, or The True Human Beings.
It's what most people call themselves, to begin with. And then one day the tribe meets some other People or, if it's not been a good day, The Enemy. If only they'd think up a name like Some More True Human Beings, it'd save a lot of trouble later on.

You mean nothing becomes everything? Why, yes, sir. Er... in a way, it has to, sir. It could have been anything at all, sir. Even a stray thought. Absolute nothing is very unstable. It's so desperate to be something.

Magicians and scientists are, on the face of it, poles apart. Certainly, a group of people who often dress strangely, live in a world of their own, speak a specialized language and frequently make statements that appear to be in flagrant breach of common sense have nothing in common with a group of people who often dress strangely, speak a specialized language, live in ... er ...

Look, how about this: let's pretend we had the row and I've won, see. It saves a lot of effort... Now, are we going? (Isabella using some linguistic magic in Terry Pratchett's Mort :p)

Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders they have managed to invent boredom? Quite astonishing...(Death in The Hogfather)

You need to believe in things that aren't true, how else can they become? (Death in The Hogfather)

Humans need fantasy to be human, to be the place where the fallen angel meets the rising ape. (Death in The Hogfather)

Disinfo Con

(these vids keep being taken down, here is the Grant Morrison talk, look around the web for more using "disinfo con" as keywords). 

Disinfo Con Part 1: presentations by Richard Metzger, Douglas Rushkoff, comic book writer Grant Morrison, Adam Parfrey, film maker Kenneth Anger and Mark Peace.

Disinfo Con Part 2: presentations by Marylin Manson, the Girls of Karen Black, painter Joe Coleman, and a long lecture by Robert Anton Wilson. It should be noted that the Girls of Karen Black segment is a performance piece called "the Wall of Vagina." There is nudity involved and some less than polite activity although one would be hard pressed to define this as pornographic. Still, nsfw none the less.

Would you like some OZ with that? (26th minute)

Another cool moment when she said: "...the story of Bush,Bushna... Krishna Buddha... :p"

It's also in the Je$uit$ symbol.

The Ark 2008 version

In the year 2008, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the United States, and said: "Once again, the earth has become wicked and over-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me. Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good humans." He gave Noah the blueprints, saying: "You have 6 months to build the Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights."

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard - but no Ark.
"Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"

"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah,
"'but things have changed I needed a building permit. I've been arguing with the inspector about the need for a sprinkler system.

My neighbors claim that I've violated the neighborhood zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding the height limitations We had to go to the Development Appeal Board for a decision

Then the Department of Transportation demanded a bond be posted for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the Ark's move to the sea I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it.

Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the spotted owl I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go.

When I started gathering the animals, an animal rights group sued me. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodations were too restrictive, and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space.

Then the EPA ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood.

I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew Immigration and Naturalization are checking the green-card status of most of the people who want to work.

The trades unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with Ark-building experience.

To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this Ark.

Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.
Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean you're not going to destroy the world?"

"No," said the Lord
"The government beat me to it."

(The 'Lord' being the same kind of BS divide & conquer device before the creature of representative government came into being...)

Olympic Logo: 3-l Swastika & ZION= 2012

Check out this fun with symbols, from rumormillnews, and many thanks to PseudOccult. I never realized ZION=2012, ha! This is the logo for the 2012 London Summer Olympics. London will be the first city to host the games for the 3rd time.

Early public reaction to the logo, as measured by a poll on the BBC website, was largely negative: more than 80% of votes gave the logo the lowest possible rating. Several newspapers have run their own logo competitions, displaying alternative submissions from their readers. It was widely commented that the logo resembles an image of the cartoon character Lisa Simpson performing fellatio and others have complained that it looks like a distorted Swastika (see below). (added: you can also spell Oz, obviozly.)

Olympic Logo also spells Zion

Zion(2102 rearranged or backwards)=2012 (equal value numerologically)

3-legged Swastika

And more 3-legged Swastikas (triskelions) from this source:
A stylized triskelion, Greek for three-leg .
This sign is associated with progress and competition and originated in ancient Greece, where it was used on coins.
Nowadays one can find on the coat of arms of the Isle of Man, the island between Great Britain and Ireland.
The Isle of Man is inhabited by Celts, and is related to , an early Celtic sign.
A similar structure, [same without hooks on the end], is used in electrical contexts to signify a certain type of transformer winding

Signs of this type are called triskelion, three-leg. This one is from a sheild that was used as a prize at competitions in Athens around 500 B.C.

This sign is the logo for Afrikaaner Weerstandsbeweging, a white organization in South Africa opposed to ending the policy of apartheid.
Compare with in Group 14.

The ancient structure has been found both in pre-Columbian America and in the Bronze Age Europe. In Europe it is especially associated with the Celtic tribes.
In this variation, , it appears in modern times in France as a sign for Jeune Bretagne, a separatist movement in the Celtic part of Bretagne.
The basic symbol is associated with migrations or independent movements of tribes or clans.

And some more of them

Also check out this huge Olympics symbolism post at Konkrete Junkyard, including a surprise (for me at least) about the main five rings logo.


Bonus if you find the 'hidden' word

me and a buddy thought of "suck it" at first glance but that's not it, lol!
