America Ate My Brain (Part One)

Tell me great hero, but please make it brief
Is there a hole for me to get sick in? - Bob Dylan

Face Front, True Believers

So it's 1966, and I'm six years old, and I buy my first comic book: X-Men number 21. And I can remember 41 years later because I've long since catalogued it, sealed it with a cardboard backing and filed it by title and number in an oblong archive box.

I'd explain, to anyone who couldn't understand, or to whom I'd embarrassed myself trying to be understood, that they were "investments." But only people as foolish with money would fall for that, and they probably had comparable indefensible collections themselves. The stories were always for reading, even after I could read between them.

But I couldn't yet, in 1967, when I became a paid-up member of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. The flexi-disc still plays, and if I ever write a letter again I still have the stationary. I wanted to be a hero too, and so I wished I'd been born an American. I told my mother, and she never tired of reminding me.

Steve Ditko appointed my adolescence with fantasies of vigilantes and loners above the law: the Übermensch who was also everyman. I didn't know, and it wouldn't have meant anything to me if I had, that Ditko was devoted to the philosophy of Ayn Rand, which he explored and evangelized in his comic titles. In Alan Moore's Watchmen, Moore took Ditko's "Mister A" - "an absolute insane fascist but done absolutely straight" - to his mad end with the character Rorschach. Ditko didn't get it. ("Oh yes - he's the one who's like Mister A, except Rorschach is insane.")

Stan Lee was always a bit seedy and very much a huckster, but he knew that he was and worked it, and to a kid raised on Silver Age comics he seemed on our side, and the comics industry seemed as disconnected from the real powers of this world as its readers. Neither was true, long before the scandal of his former partner in Stan Lee Enterprises, Peter Paul. He now styles himself a "whistleblower," and panders to the American right and its Clinton fixations, and accompanying blindspot to the bigger picture and the Clintons place within it. But by the time he'd turned 27 Paul was the President of the Miami World Trade Center, had been employed by four major intelligence agencies and "was recruited by operatives of our government for a plan to embarrass Castro" by defrauding Cuba of millions of dollars worth of coffee. He pled guilty on a charge of conspiracy, and served time for cocaine trafficking and trying to enter Canada on a false identity. In 2000 Paul was the largest contributor to Hillary Clinton's Senatorial bid, and he threw her a Hollywood gala reputed to have cost nearly $2 million. Two days later, the Washington Post reported Paul's criminal past and Clinton denied even knowing him.

There's a video online of Lee in Paul's office, shot by Paul, of the two meeting with Stanley Myatt., who has been variously described in the press as "a CIA assassin, a consort of Italian and Russian mafiosi, a Wall Street scam artist, a loan shark, and an informant for the FBI and the DEA." In Paul's memorandum of 2005, he says he was introduced to Myatt

in 1978 at the direction of the FBI in order to obtain Paul’s assistance in resolving an anti-Castro effort involving an international coffee deal for which the government through Myatt in the end induced Mr. Paul to plead guilty to one count of conspiring to send wire messages in furtherance of the scheme perpetrated by others to defraud the Cuban government. (Exhibit A). Since then, Myatt has been the root cause of Mr. Paul’s entire "criminal" history from 1978 to 1983 and is responsible for his guilty pleas to three separate felonies arising out of government/Myatt sponsored anti-Castro, anti-Communist covert operations. At all times since 1978 Myatt has been enabled and encouraged by the government to abuse the authority of the FBI, ATF, DEA, Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Parole Office, and Treasury Department.

Once a Marvel reader came to political consciousness, it didn't take a decoder ring to know that Lee's own leaned grievously to the right; far enough to make a costumed hero of a military industrialist, and to make his costume iron, as though his enfleshment was a weakness to be overcome, and then give him a sidekick called "War Machine." In the movie adaptation of Iron Man to be released next Spring, his origin has been updated to include a kidnapping by jihadists. Two US Air Force F-22 Raptors and a Global Hawk make supporting appearances, which "shows they really went out of their way for us"; or so director John Favreau tells it on this Youtube posting of the Air Force News Agency.

Eventually, the Nick Fury-wannabes of this universe saw the upside in recruiting Lee's original, and making the comic universe another front in the war on adolescent imagination. As though admitted an arrested development to their own fighting force, in 2005 the Department of Defense partnered with Marvel to launch a custom imprint for troops deployed to the Middle East. The event at the Pentagon "coincided with 'Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,' so plenty of youngsters were on hand to get the first copies of the special comics":

"That's really cool. They said that they're trying to help all the people [in the military]," said 11-year-old Kaitlin Lee, who was visiting the Pentagon with her younger brother and sister and their soldier dad. Kaitlin explained that it's good for the superheroes to show support for the troops because some kids want to be like their favorite superheroes.

She used her 6-year-old brother, Josh - who was holding tight to his own "Spidey" - as an example. "Like Josh here," she said. "He wants to be like Spiderman and [Spiderman] wants to help out [the troops]. So it's just kind of showing that we would like to help out too and we want to show [the troops] that we care."

The bracketed additions "for sense" are the Army's own.

The fifth issue, released last month to soldiers serving with Centcom, depicts Captain America striking an iconic pose with Avengers assembling behind him, overshadowed by and armed and masked enemy. And at a glance, through the menacing figure's eye slits, he's obviously depicted with a complexion by which Centcom identifies the enemy.

Marvel's privileged relationship with the Pentagon, as tacit incubator and explicit feedlot for its slaughterhouse, makes its latest phenomenal success of particular grim interest.

And in the second part, I'll get to the point.

Abe...I appreciate that you followed up on the link and from your response, it is apparent that you were open minded and gave a fair assessment as to the authenticity of the document. Mark has done an "exhaustive" study of the author on this blog and it raises many questions that have not been answered in my hard copies as it concerns the original documentation. There is no "evidence" whatsoever that this alleged "ancient document" is in the secret Vatican library as he says he copied the text "surreptiously while claiming to do other research.

In a curious way, "The Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ" reminds me of "The Protocols of The Elders of Zion". The two documents couldn't be more diametrically opposed in their message with the commonality that no one knows where these extraordinary precepts came from. The "Gospel" just happens to be in the Vatican library but no one says how it got there or confirms that it is in fact in the library. As recently as last month, other documents have surfaced from this so called vault that proves the persecution of the Templars was on behalf of the French king and not the Vatican so this spector of hidden documents is fresh in the public mind. My copies of "The Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ" has been around for 70 years. I'm sure that hanging around Mickey D's is not going to perfect the mind, body, spirit and the following cut and paste should point that out clearly.


The view that Jesus Christ was a Quan Yin Method Master and promoter of vegetarianism is supported by many passages in The Essene Gospel of Peace: Book One and The Essene Gospel of Peace: Book Four —The Teaching of the Elect, published by the International Biogenic Society. These texts were translated by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely from ancient Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts in the Secret Archives of the Vatican and from old Slavonic writings in the Royal Library of the Hapsburgs (now the property of the Austrian government). You can also read summary versions of these books by visiting:

Jesus’ Advocacy of Vegetarianism
The Essene Gospel of Peace: Book One contains numerous references that clearly express Jesus’ views on vegetarianism. For example, at one point Jesus is asked, “Moses, the greatest in Israel, suffered our forefathers to eat the flesh of clean beasts, and forbade only the flesh of unclean beasts. Why, therefore, do you forbid us the flesh of all beasts? Which law comes from God — that of Moses or your law?”

To this question, Jesus replies, “God commanded your forefathers: ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ But their heart was hardened and they killed. Then Moses desired that at least they should not kill men, and he suffered them to kill beasts. And then the heart of your forefathers was hardened yet more, and they killed men and beasts likewise. But I do say to you: Kill neither men, nor beasts, nor yet the food which goes into your mouth. For if you eat living food, the same will quicken you, but if you kill your food, the dead food will kill you also. For life comes only from life, and from death comes always death.”

Jesus then goes into more detail, mentioning specific foods that his followers should consume: “For your body is that which you eat, and your spirit is that which you think. Wherefore, prepare and eat all fruits of trees, all grasses of the fields, and all milk of beasts good for eating. For all these are fed and ripened by the fire of life; all are the gift of the angels of our Earthly Mother. But eat nothing to which only the fire of death gives savor, for such is of Satan. So eat always from the table of God: the fruits of the trees, the grain and grasses of the field, the milk of beasts, and the honey of bees. For everything beyond these is of Satan, and leads by the way of sins and of diseases unto death. But the foods which you eat from the abundant table of God give strength and youth to your body, and you will never see disease.”

These excerpts from the Essene scriptures support Master Ching Hai’s assertions about Jesus’ Essene origins and vegetarian heritage: “Jesus was vegetarian since He was born, and even when He was in the womb. Jesus was born [into] a vegetarian family, a vegetarian tradition, the Essene tradition. This you can study in [a] book about the life of Jesus. You should study the life of Jesus in another separate book, not the Bible.” Here Master even appears to make reference to the Essene Gospels — “another separate book, not the Bible.”

The Light and Sound Meditation

Also, as mentioned above, Jesus reveals that He is a Master of Light and Sound Meditation in the Essene texts. For instance, in The Essene Gospel of Peace: Book Four — Teaching of the Elect, Jesus makes mention of the inner Sound stream as follows: “For I tell you truly, there is a Holy Stream of Life which gave birth to the Earthly Mother and all her angels. Invisible is this Stream of Life to the eyes of the Sons of Men, but the Sons of Light are given the secrets of communion with the angels. And the eyes of your spirit shall be opened, and you will see and hear and touch the Stream of Life that gave birth to the Earthly Mother. And you will enter the Holy Stream of Life, and It will carry you with infinite tenderness to everlasting life in the kingdom of your Heavenly Father.”

In the same text, Jesus discusses the need to become silent or attain a meditative state before experiencing the Sound: “For in the beginning of times so did we all share in the Holy Stream of Life that gave birth to all creation. And when the sun is high in the heavens, then shall you let into your ears the Holy Stream of Sound; for It can only be heard in the silence. Think on the streams that are born in the desert after a sudden storm and the roaring sound of the waters as they rush past. Truly, this is the voice of God. For as is written, in the beginning was the Sound, and the Sound was with God, and the Sound was God. It is ever in our ears, [but] we hear It not. Listen for It, then, in the silence of noontide; bathe in It, and let the rhythm of the music of God beat in your ears until you are one with the Holy Stream of Sound that [It] may carry you to the endless kingdom of the Heavenly Father where the rhythm of the world rises and falls.”

Moreover, in Teaching of the Elect Jesus advocates meditation on the Light: “In the moments before you sleep shall you think of the bright and glorious stars, the white, shining, far-seen and far-piercing stars. Let your thoughts before sleep be with the stars; for the stars are Light, and the Heavenly Father is Light, even that Light which is a thousand times brighter than the brightness of a thousand suns. Enter the Holy Stream of Light that the shackles of death may loose their hold forever, and breaking free from the bonds of earth, ascend through the blazing radiance of the stars, into the endless kingdom of the Heavenly Father. For at the beginning of the times, the Holy Law said, let there be Light, and there was Light. And you shall be one with it, and the power of the Holy Light Stream will fill your whole body, and you will tremble before Its might.”

Finally, in summarizing the power of the Sound and Light as the ultimate source of liberation and enlightenment, Jesus tells his disciples, “I tell you truly, your ears were made not only to hear the words of men, the song of birds, and the music of falling rain, but they were also made to hear the Holy Stream of Sound. And your eyes were made not only to see the rising and setting of the sun, the ripple of sheaves of grain, and the words of the holy scrolls, but they were also made to see the Holy Stream of Light. Enter the Holy Streams, even that Life, that Sound, and that Light which gave you birth; that you may reach the kingdom of the Heavenly Father and become one with him.”

Reading manuscripts such as The Essene Gospel of Peace: Book One and The Essene Gospel of Peace: Book Four — The Teaching of the Elect, which present Jesus’ ancient comments on the inner Light and Sound and the vegetarian diet can help reinforce one’s confidence in the contemporary message of Supreme Master Ching Hai, as both Masters reveal that the Light and Sound Meditation (Quan Yin Method) and vegetarianism are truly the divine way to liberation and entry into the Kingdom of Heaven. Both Jesus’ and Master Ching Hai’s teachings are in turn part of the eternal message of Truth promulgated by all the great Masters through the ages. As Master puts it, “In a sense, Jesus never died. Jesus works through all the Masters throughout the centuries, throughout the ages, to liberate and enlighten us, the ignorant, who are still left behind.”

It would appear from the Vegas Dem throwdown - m.c.'d by Sr. Wolf Bitzer, analyzed by Sr. Anderson Cooper, with unanimous CNN post-debate punditry giving the win to HRClinton, and with CNN post-debate visuals constantly featuring HRC in exciting psycho-dominant poses, not to mention Bitzer's consistent trivialization, mischaracterization, and outright misprepresentation of DK's positions and statements and, most importantly, principled public stands - that the aforementioned Clinton is no taller than the constantly derided Kucinich, which is to say the ridicule is an unnatural act, born from obscured motive, and intended for something other than just simple catharsis.
Kucinich's demands for Impeachment Now! were the single most encouraging sounds I've heard all year.
CNN and FOX etc are primarily responsibly for the election of Bush-Cheney, and thus should be impeached first.
Impeach your television!

Well diet is definitely a very important issue but it needs to be understood in the context of science as driven by the "commodity fetish." Poor people and everyone else eat at Fast Food restaurants because the West requires lots of iron-based testosterone so that males can be recharged to satisfy the increased focus on cheap materialist sex as the symbol of success.

Or we can hang out with a bunch of repressed whites kissing ass to "climb the ladder," thereby projecting their oppression -- in posh organic eateries, that fly in organic tomatoes from across the country.

The real question is why was Hitler a vegetarian who ranted against animal torture -- like so many of today's suburban-based activists?

There's a long history of this in India where the caste system is strongly based on diet.

If I could essentially be paid (like a Brahmin priest) to not have to do strenuous physical exercise, to be able to not have any interaction with females (so that I can sublimate all my sexual energy -- to "spiritualize" my own body), etc. then vegetarianism would be ideal.

We can see that this is OBVIOUSLY based on a FEAR of women stealing the male power and the pragmatic answer, in stark contrast, to having the energy "stolen," is for the working class male (and female) to load up on cheap high levels of testosterone and concentrated iron calories.

A real "spiritual" person therefore is a "specialist" -- someone who is committed to meditation enough so that not only can they keep the yin-yang channels open of the body (specifically collecting yin through the lower half of the body while scattering yang through the 3rd eye), but also the person can build up their energy within the body to reach

"deeper levels" of female formless awareness.

Keep in mind that 90% of human history was NOT vegetarian where 90% of the males were shamanic healers of advanced ability (seeing inside people's bodies). This is the Bushmen culture.

So we can see that this paradox of "spiritual" food -- the whole new focus on say BIODYNAMIC FARMING or say -- FANCY MONASTERY RETREATS WITH ORGANIC FEASTS (see the new book edited by Mike Davis, verso) --


Yes there is SUPPOSED to be an existential shock about the formless awareness being FEMALE. All of reality is gendered. As Pythagoras taught -- the One is Male but is not a Number because we can't say where it starts, yet if we investigate its source through silence then it's FEMALE as formless awareness or what Pythagoreans called:

HARMONIA (The Goddess as formless awareness).

So we are taught Pythagoras' motto was "All is Number" -- that's the Freemasonic lie.

In fact Pythagoras taught:


I make this same critique of Zizek in my masters thesis. He assumes that "New Age ecological harmony" -- and he did read an early version of my masters thesis, stating it was "fascinating" -- is FAKE.

But, again, Zizek does not realize that "harmony" is ONLY the female formless awareness.

Here is the critical phrase from Guenon that quoted:

"in fact, there can be properly speaking no question of yin and yang except in relation to the manifested world.”

So I'm not talking about yin and yang -- but the THIRD dynamic, as Gurdjieff emphasizes that is always left out in the West. As Pythagoras taught: The Two is female as matter and as it resonates to three, the first male number as matter, so the first ratio of creation exists as 666 -- the infinite resonance of yang or 2:3. This resonates through the same complimentary opposite that was the source of the One as the I-thought -- the Female formless awareness, then creating 3:4 as yin. The Female Formless Awareness is the SOURCE.

So again "one" is not a number, just as "I" does not signify anything, as detailed in Dan Zahavi's recent book: "Self-Awareness and Alterity."

But the crucial connection between the two (number and phonetic language) is that when we listen to the source of the I-thought, the process resonates as complimentary opposites so that the "tai-chi waveform" is beyond frequency or amplitude -- there is a direct resonance through this complimentary opposite waveform as the sine-wave of the symbol (consciousness or the One of the I-thought) connecting to the circle of the symbol (the Wu Chi or the female formless awareness).

To put it as a right-brain symbol is to easily make the mistake of slipping back into symmetric-based phonetic analysis that also uses right-brain geometry. Female formless awareness can not be visualized -- it is a process of listening to something that is neither inside nor outside, neither space nor time, etc.

So again it's best to understand yin and yang as harmonic ratios, which they are specifically known to be: the Perfect 5th and 4th as 2:3 or Yang and 3:4 or Yin, respectively. This is the main discovery of my masters thesis.

To put this understanding to practice is to utilize Tai-Chi, the Small Universe practice and most importantly the full-lotus.

Now to answer the question that I previously answered indirectly but was not understood:

Do I "endorse" Mantak Chia's statement that Taoist paranormal healing compliments the advances in technology.

I neither endorse nor reject it because my masters thesis makes the same argument: the convergence of nonwestern paranormal healing, modelled by harmonics with the cutting edge of technology: quantum chaos.

What my more recent and more radical blogbook shows is that the progression of quantum chaos science causes increased DISHARMONY because of this "rotten root" in the foundation of the logic -- the concept that we can "contain" infinity through symmetrical geometry, using phonetic logic, with it's origins in the "symbolic revolution" of plow-based BRAHMIN or GOD (from the Indo-European word GOTT meaning BULL) farming.

Again the concept that we can "contain" infinity through the "symmetrical" symbol of the Tai-Chi or Two-beings is WRONG.

So while the two go in opposite directions (logarithmic-based science and complimentary opposite-based paranormal healing) they still meet "back" in the female formless awareness.

Science states that Nature is asymmetric while math is symmetrical while nonwestern paranormal healing states that Nature is harmony (beyond symmetry or asymmetry) while the means to understand this is asymmetric resonance or complimentary opposites.

The problem is that science is a byproduct of Nature with science based on the illusion of symmetry (in contrast to Nature) which in turn creates disharmony, as a repressed psychological progression. When I state Nature I mean FEMALE FORMLESS AWARENESS as "eternal nature."

Science is driven by DESIRE and therefore Swami Vivekananda, the yogi and Freemason, was correct when he called science: The External Path.

Science is tantra because technology is dirty, lowly and based on improper logic yet it "works" through the commodity fetish. Science is not based on direct inference or direct perception but instead on indirect and incomplete "proof by contradiction" through empirical deduction, a contrived "dualistic" logic that "contains" infinity.

I think Gee To The Three and Abe are exercising Mind Control techniques on the unwitting here.

Endless repetition is a crucial part of that repetoire. Apparently, they don't want you too pay attention to anything else being discussed. "Don't pay any attention to the Man Behind The Curtain."

Jim Jones would talk to "his people" all day long on loudspeakers set up throughout the compound...and we all know he was a mind-controlled individual himself and Jonestown was one big experiment that Leo Ryan had to go and ruin.

No bother, it's not like they didn't have numerous others scattered around the world....and still do, for that matter.

I'm proud to say that the CIA rejected me at early age as a mind-control candidate. They said I was a Fruc was right when he called me one....if it wasn't obvious already. But hey, that's a benefit of being retarded...the CIA can't control your mind...which means, of course, that they are controlling Fruc's. Of course, now Fruc will jump on the bandwagon and tell us he's retarded, as well. Either way, I like how Fruc prays. I get it now...praying is insulting people...thanks Fruc.

The book I referred to edited by Mike Davis is called "Evil Paradises" published by New Press, NOT Verso. The chapter I referred to on the new trend of chic monastery retreats - booked a year in advance with posh, organic settings is by Professor Sara Lipton who specializes in the very issue I focused on in my post:

Sara Lipton, Associate Professor

Ph.D., Yale University, 1991
Research Interests:

My work focuses on religious identity and experience, Jewish-Christian relations, and art and culture in the high Middle Ages (11th-14th centuries). I am currently working on two projects. The first, to be published by Metropolitan Books in 2007, examines how changing concepts of vision and witness in medieval Christian society intersected with the visual representation of the Jew. The second, entitled Art, Preaching, and Piety in the High Middle Ages (1150-1300) seeks to understand why and to what effect Christendom invested so much in worshiping the ineffable Word through the material thing.

Bezmenov on the 'beautiful schools' of eastern mysticism that the KGB loved so much:

‘To change perception of reality of every American to such an extent, that despite the abundance of information no-one is able come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country’.

Say Goodbye to Freedom

Soviet Deception: Demoralization of the West

Before he defected, the Soviet, KGB spy Yuri Bezmenov was assigned to India to spy on the Americans and see if India’s spiritual guru’s offered any potential information that could help them with their war against the Soviet and Communism. He found the opposite, the idea to solve problems by meditating would only help their plan to brainwash Americans. This worked perfect for their strategy to demoralise Americans, to destruct and deviate their mental energy from real issues to non-issues, primarily to take their minds away from real issues of liberty and freedom.

AMY GOODMAN: Why did you quit? Why did you leave America?

RANDALL ROBINSON: Well, we were -- my wife, Hazel, and I, with our daughter Kalia were going to a place as much as we were leaving this place. St. Kitts-Nevis is a small exquisitely beautiful, democratic, well-run, civil, decent society, where people care about each other and take care of each other. These were qualities I had come to find hopelessly lacking, absent, in American society. I had discovered at this age -- I was 60 when we left -- that I wanted to live in a society for some time, some portion of my life, where race did not have to be a battlement, that one could get beyond that and not feel it always in one's craw. And it's a kind of thing that it used up so much of my energy, and the energy of so many in the United States. But perhaps more importantly, that after the active stage of this great crime against humanity, slavery and de jure discrimination that put together ran for 346 years, America became very satisfied with itself, that it had done all that it was going to do, while the victims of this long-running crime were left wounded in the worst way: families destroyed, chances for healthy socializations gone, prospects nil, and so the main bulk of the black community remained bottom stuck. The civil rights movement helped people like me, people who had come from intact families, whose parents were healthy enough to encourage us to believe that we could do well. And so, it meant that the door was open, if you could walk, perhaps could you get through it, but many could not, and they remained bottom stuck. Black community cleaved into two parts: those who could benefit and those who were too terribly devastated to do so. Nothing has been done for them.

So, we find ourselves now in a situation in America with a society in terrible shape, but with that condition, fundamentally ignored by those who rule it. It just does not matter, even as it jeopardizes the whole of society. A poll was done recently that showed that a full half of Americans are afraid to venture more than a mile from their homes at night. The whole society has become a sort of prison. We have one 1/20ths of the world's population with one-fourth of the world's prisoners. There's something wrong with that, 2 million and climbing, half of whom are black, because of the reasons I detailed, in addition to the active discrimination that is ongoing. The chance of a black getting arrested, a young black male, are six times that of his white counterpart, of being incarcerated seven times, and once incarcerated will serve a sentence exactly twice as long as his white counterpart for the same crime. Blacks are half of those on death row, three-quarters when they are added to the Hispanic inmate populations. So, this business of locking up people has become a new thriving industry in America with private prisons, in a democracy, which means that in order to have your stock increase in value in a private prison, you have to get more prisoners. So, states like California are investing much more in prison construction than they are in ground-up construction of new universities. And all of this goes on with the full blessing of not just governments that come and go, Democratic and Republican, but with the full blessing of media, the popular culture, and all of the rest.

In our foreign policy, this hyperpower, I think is coming to endanger the entire world, because now it operates willy-nilly without checks and balances. Iraq is just one example of the kind of disaster that is possible when we have a nation so powerful, so full of itself, unwilling to examine itself, self absorbed, and narcissistic in all of what that means, that it will go forward against the grain of the international community unilaterally, to create the disaster that Iraq will be for many generations to come. It won't work. To think that we now in Iraq have Muslim women becoming prostitutes, servicing American soldiers just feeds the kind of hatred that is growing and felt towards Americans throughout the Islamic world. It's a very sad thing, and we get to a point that we cannot make America listen anymore to anybody but itself.

I -- I just -- to preserve my sanity, and I think my voice, I thought it best for me to leave. I wanted to see another place, to feel

Thanks Jeff.

Almost 500 comments on the previous post! Geez that’s wonderful and BPH I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed reading your golf story. It was amazing. So did you become a golfer? Or did you let that left brain logical “realistic” brain take over and tell you that wasn’t “realistic”? I bet everyone of us could raise our hands and say yep, I never went after my dreams either.

How bout you Shrub? Did you go for your dreams?

I still love you by the way, even though I could tell you and Richard had your shorts all in a wedgie. But never had the chance to explain myself further, so here’s what I meant when I said I support the troops.

I am an onion with many layers also, Shrub. I come from a military family with roots that go back for generations. My Dad, my granddad, my brothers, my uncles were (notice past tense) all Marines. When you step into the foyer of my childhood home a plaque hung there with the words “Semper Fidelis”. That’s Latin for “Always Faithful”. With those words and knowing what they mean how could I not support the troops?

But you know who I and my family don’t support? The crazies that have taken over the military and our government and are running it !
And overwhelming circumstantial evidence makes me wonder who may be behind the murder of Pat Tillman. I know it was not OSAMA!

These kind of people:
America Supports You With Apocalyptic Rhetoric?
Topics: international | Iraq | propaganda | religion | U.S. government
Source: The Nation blog, August 7, 2007
In a July 2005 PR Watch post, Laura Miller asked whether the U.S. Defense Department's "America Supports You" campaign was an attempt "to boost public support for war and distract ... from criticisms." Turns out, it's even more problematic. As Max Blumenthal reports, the "evangelical entertainment troupe" Operation Straight Up (OSU), which "actively proselytizes among active-duty members of the US military," is an official arm of America Supports You. OSU "plans to mail copies of the controversial apocalyptic video game, Left Behind: Eternal Forces to soldiers serving in Iraq." The game is based on the Tim LaHaye/Jerry Jenkins books, and players must "kill or convert ... non-believers left behind after the rapture." They're also mailing English and Arabic versions of the evangelical book More Than A Carpenter, "ostensibly intended for proselytizing efforts among Iraqi civilians." OSU will head to the Mideast for a "Military Crusade in Iraq." As OSU leader Jonathan Spinks explains: "At no greater time is our military acceptant of the principles of God and prayer, than when under extreme danger and concerned about their loved ones at home."
America Supports You (ASY) is a government-funded public relations program created to generate support for the Bush administration's global war on terror by organizing publicity and support for soldiers. Susan Davis International (SDI) is a Washington D.C.-based PR company funded to work on America Supports You. Pentagon official Allison Barber is credited with developing the idea for ASY, and continues to head it
In July 2006, National Public Radio reported that "one recent effort is a campaign to get people at major league baseball games to 'text-message' their support to the troops on their cell phones... even though those messages aren't actually sent to the troops." According to former ASY webmaster Chris Moore, the messages were simply archived on an ASY computer database.
Kill or convert.

Now by supporting the troops, does that mean that I condone killing? I don’t think so, because killing is wrong.

Every life is a soul. Every soul is a life.

Now at this point and time in our consciousness can anyone honestly say that we would not have such a huge increase or surge in our rise to pacifism and the idea that killing is wrong, war is wrong, without being made to look at it, without the soldiers that kill, and then finding that it kills their very own soul. Over 120 veterans a week commit suicide.

So what has the last two thousand years been? The dark ages, yes? Not completely, but highly dramatic. Barbarian invasions, crusades, wars upon wars upon wars upon wars, every place upon this planet has been touched by wars, and what do wars do? They spill blood and they also destroy the body, but they free the consciousness. Consciousness continues to evolve then by being freed with a certain amount of aggression, which is coming out of that suppressed rage, anger and pain, and also clearing the wound that was experienced in Atlantis by the Mother Herself. So your bodies carry the wound. Your bodies carried that suppressed unconscious. And you, in incarnating over and over again, have transmuted about 90 percent of it in the last two thousand years. Perhaps some of you feel like you've done most of it in the last two. It has been intense, but you did take it on because you were told to remember, you were told. And you have remembered that there was an intent within all of this and somehow you knew in this lifetime that you had to do it. You had to finish your agreement on this planet to do that. So you have been eager beavers, do you see? You have been working very hard, even if others did not understand what you are up to and perhaps are not yet understanding, you ones are doing what you knew you had to do, and could not do otherwise.

(from a NEW AGEY view of Creation) Richard you don’t have to read it!
link/story about the creation of humans and CONSCIOUSNESS. Richard I can hear you already, that’s ok, we all wear different underwear and use different deodorant, that’s our choice. And David is right about that – freedom of choice. But then David don’t take it away, by saying everyone has to wear the same kind of panties or wear the same kind of deodorant (god you would think a woman could spell that word!)
Part 3 of 6
The Design and Evolution of the Human Being

Now remember that scene from the movie The Matrix, where Neo is asking why didn’t “they” make a peaceful world, a paradise, an Eden.
We did and all the humans went crazy. They need their killing, they need their wars, they need their chaos, otherwise they all went insane.

And if David is a soldier, that’s all well and good, I welcome him here, I would hope we all would. He came here for a reason, and I think he came here looking for truth like we all are.

But David make sure you really listen to yourself and make sure it is you talking and not someone else talking for you, we are supposed to be fighting for freedom and diversity and freedom of choice. Isn’t that what America is supposed to be about, so that we all don’t’ walk lock step down the road, wearing the same uniform, spouting the same rhetoric, worshiping the same “warrior” God.

I am my Dad’s only daughter, but I am his strongest warrior. I am soft like water.

“Water is fluid, soft and yielding,
But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.
As a rule whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.
This is another paradox, what is soft is strong.”

What possible purpose could all these wars and killing have? Bring freedom to the world?

What does that word freedom mean to everyone here? Can freedom be won with a gun?

Freedom for me is connecting with my soul - it seems to be relevant on one's state of being perhaps?
Freedom is inner Peace. Freedom to think and be.

Each life is a soul. Each soul is a life.

love to all

oh by the way there is a movie coming out December 7th (Pearl Harbor Day) called The Golden Compass based on the book "His Dark Materials". All those people are on a multi pronged attack against this movie because the author is an atheist "so they say" and wants to kill God.

told you that children's literature has a hell of a lot more truth going on than Chomsky.

So they hate Harry Potter, Madeleine L'Engle for A Wrinkle in Time, and now Richard Pullman for his Dark Materials. What are they so afraid of is in those children's books, that they have to save their children's minds from?

Truth maybe?

Sorry, Movie Girl, it doesn't cut it, nor does what Fruc posited in the other thread. Both of you are merely rationalizing a contradiction. Sometimes it is that simple. Organized and systematic killing cannot be justified if you truly value life, and quality of life....and you and Fruc have chosen to only value some life, not all life, by supporting the troops. The most effective way to break the chain of this crazy madness is to make it a social taboo to serve in the military. Values and norms are what guides society and it's the value and norm of unbridled support of the troops that allows the Mad Men to use the dolts as instruments of death for corporate profit and Empire.

Movie Girl, I don't believe you can reconcile your contradictions until you cut the umbilical chord from your family of origin. I'm not saying you can't reunite with them...but they must accept you for who you are...not what they want you to be....otherwise, you will always be somewhere in the ambiguous middle and your life will be full of contradictions. I'm trying to migrate through the middle as we speak...but the sojourn would be much less daunting and arduous if more people would do so in unison. You don't help by dragging people back.

I am not insulting the troops in any way. I am stating facts. It matters not why an individual became a soldier...what matters, and what is fact, is that they are instruments of death for the Plutocracy. They do the killing at the behest of those who can't be bothered with the dirty work. They are just as responsible, and you only enable and insult their victims by supporting the inhumanity. Saying you abhor violence, war and murder is meaningless when you provide support to the those pulling the triggers and dropping the bombs. Perhaps it's time to stop being Daddy's Little Girl and instead, be Movie Girl.

10000 Maniacs - Peace Train - In My Tribe

Gun Shy, by Natalie Merchant

I always knew that you would take yourself far from home
as soon as, as far as you could go.
By the 1/4 inch cut of your hair and the Army issue green,
for the past eight weeks I can tell where you've been.

For I knew, I could see, it was all cut and dried to me
there was soldier's blue blood streaming inside your veins.
There is a world outside of this room and when you meet it promise me
you won't meet it with your gun.

So now you are one of the brave few, it's awful sad we need boys like you.

I hope the day never comes for
"Here's your live round son. Stock and barrel, safety, trigger, here's your gun."

Well I knew, I could see, it was all cut and dried to me
there was soldiers blue blood streaming inside your veins.

There is a world outside of this room and when you meet it promise me
you won't meet it with your gun taking aim.

For I don't mean to argue, they've made a decent boy of you
and I don't mean to spoil your home coming,
but baby brother you should expect me to.

"Stock and barrel, safety, trigger, here's your gun."

So now does your heart pitter pat with a patriotic song
when you see the stripes of Old Glory waving?

Well I knew, I could see, it was all cut and dried to me
there was soldier's blue blood streaming inside your veins.
There is a world outside of this room and when you meet it promise me
you won't meet it with your gun taking aim.

I don't mean to argue, they've made a decent boy of you
and I don't mean to spoil your homecoming my baby brother Jude
and I don't mean to hurt you by saying this again,
they're so good at making soldiers but they're not so good at making men.

OK here's some further clarification. As I stated before about time: converging series, according to Freemasonic NeoPlatonism (Bucky Fuller) are continuous. So when we think of the Tai-Chi symbol as the Tao this is the same as thinking of the time-spiral as converging to an enclosed form of infinity. It's Freemasonry.

Left-brain logic uses "tense logic" for time paradoxes but without those further attempts to "contain" infinity left-brain logic just does away with time altogether.

What this leads to is the current neuroscience obsession with mirror neurons in Broca's Area -- the left-brain language cult. Mirror neurons argue that language is intrinsicly linked to gestures of other people that are then imitated by the person -- with the right-hand being dominant.

So gesture and vocalization are tied together.

BTW Stan Gooch's letter arrived last night and his new book is to be published next May: The Neanderthal Legacy: Our genetic and cultural heritage.

Neanderthal's may have talked but they didn't have a right-angled throat, like humans -- and I've stated before this is the first geometric "containment" of infinity through left-brain language dominance.

Primates, besides humans, use ANALOG communication which in fact, as sound DIVERGES as continuity -- diverges to


The Wen-Tzu is considered Lao Tzu's companion book to the Tao Te Ching and the Wen-Tzu states:


Again the Tao is not any "two-being" as a symbol.

I don't have time to wade thru all the previous posts (489) to find who wrote this:

"That’s the reason why I stopped being interested in the person behind the mask. All I am interested in is what the person has to tell me and then I go and WEIGH THE EVIDENCE on the issue at hand."

AND THEN WHAT????????? What are you going to DO after you WEIGH the EVIDENCE???????????????After the big AH HAH!!! I GOT IT!!!!! THEN WHAT??????

Randall Robinson quote:
“So, this business of locking up people has become a new thriving industry in America with private prisons, in a democracy, which means that in order to have your stock increase in value in a private prison, you have to get more prisoners.”

I just watched SICKO, SHRUB, and this quote reminds me of the “Medical Industry” in the U.S. When a person (a doctor) willfully and consciously “discards” a fellow human who is sick and dying because he has no money for care, he is much like the soldier who takes the life of the enemy, the family and friends of the enemy and the children of the enemy. It seems that we have ALL become the enemy. We are the enemy and we have no where else to hide from ourselves.

MOVIE GIRL : I love you BUT; Soldiers are trained to kill; to kill other humans for whatever reason. Taking another persons life, is taking your own life, never to be whole again. A part of the collective human spirit dies when ANY man, woman or child, dies at the hands of the soldier who is killing for concepts such as “your freedom” or “our national interests”. Breaks my heart.

Humanity must evolve beyond killing to live. We are witnessing “life” diminishing on a daily basis.

As Michael Moore asks of us: ”WHO HAVE WE BECOME as Americans?” Instead of a “WE” nation, we have become a “ME” nation. Michael visited France, England, Germany and Cuba. At least, the people in those nations have evolved to the point that they see health care as a basic right for all citizens. The Englishman who sees democracy as a right and a privilege for those who are poor and in need so they might have a voice and a vote that would improve the quality of their lives. And those first responders that received health care in Cuba, simply because they needed it and had nothing to do with what country they came from. They were human beings first. In the country where I live many people have been treated and lives have been saved by the Cuban doctors who were sent here to give health care at little or no cost.

Well, most of the posts I have read lately focused on the “ME” and will get us nowhere. Who has the biggest intellect or quotes the most authors of other material to show how big “ME” is or how much you agree or disagree so your pitiful egos can continue to ignore the WE.

So the annihilation of Humankind continues even after 489 comments of “war of the words” continue. You guys should become so outraged at what is being done to you, that you would have no time to post long intellectual mind fucks to each other.

Is there anything you guys are actually DOING to alleviate the suffering of your brothers and sisters in your neighborhood or your work place or you state or nation or the world?????
Give a meal to a homeless person, give compassion to those who are scared and hateful, give a word of kindness to those who are neglected and lonely, plant a tree to honor the Earth, give a part of yourself to another for whatever the need might be, give a silent blessing to those struggling in the world just to find a meal or clean water, and bless the dying children before they leave the Earth because no one heard their call for help.
And Mothers: When will you stop sending your sons and daughters off to kill their brothers and sisters?????

Michael is an example of someone who is DOING something about the atrocities that we live with and IGNORE. He cares about his fellow human beings and all he is asking is that we care enough to change the way we are treating each other.

If WE do not evolve beyond this petty existence in the United States, there is no hope for Humanity.

And YES, DAVID Chemtrails do exist and are causing great damage to health and to life in many countries; as are many other things that you have NOT made yourself aware of yet. Educate yourself, if you dare!

GGG: Maybe you are a “healer” and have gobs of information and personal experiences to relate to us but it seems you are clogging the wheels here. And you are RIGHT I DO NOT understand the TAO. I plant trees and help others who have less than I do. WHO are YOU?? Space Vampire or Shaman??

WAR NEGGAR: Find another playground. You are an insult to my Humanity.

Today I would like to honor Jeff and IC for their commitment to "WE" and to a new way of perceiving and living life.

IC: God Bless you, I love you

If I have offended anyone with what I have written I am not sorry, I am angry and disappointed…..You live in a country that has given you many opportunities that most of the world will not experience in this lifetime. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO with those opportunities that are rapidly disappearing???????

WATER IS LIFE and you are letting the PTB take it from you. You have the right to get health care when you are sick and you let the hospitals turn your dying child away to die in your arms.

WHO ARE WE??????

Chemtrails come to mind. Many people in Haiti are flooding the hospitals with eye and virus infections that are not deadly, yet.
Bless you and stay well...........

ATLANTA, Nov. 16

-- Clinicians should keep their eyes peeled for a mutated form of adenovirus 14 that has caused at least 10 deaths, most of them among adults, the CDC warned.

Noting that control of adenovirus is "challenging," the CDC urged health care practitioners to take extra care if they suspect an adenovirus infection and to follow the 2003 guidelines for pneumonia care.
Action Points

Explain to interested patients that adenovirus infections are usually not life-threatening among adults, although they can be deadly in newborns, the elderly, and those with an underlying medical condition.

Note that this report suggests that a strain of adenovirus now circulating is preferentially causing mortality among adults.
But the agency -- calling the infection "uncommon" -- did not suggest any special precautions for the general public.

Fifty-one adenoviruses are known and most cause non-life-threatening disease in adults, although severe disease -- including pneumonia and gastrointestinal disease -- can occur in newborns, the elderly, and those with an underlying medical condition.

The new strain of adenovirus 14 differs in that most of its victims have been otherwise healthy adults, CDC officials said.

"What really got people's attention is these are healthy young adults landing in the hospital and, in some cases, the ICU," said John Su, M.D., Ph.D., of the CDC.

But the first case that came to the CDC's attention was a 12-day-old infant who died in a New York hospital in May 2006. The baby girl was full-term and the delivery was uncomplicated, the agency reported.

Postmortem examination found adenovirus 14, as well as chronic inflammatory cells with intranuclear inclusions, in the lungs, consistent with adenoviral bronchiolitis and acute respiratory distress syndrome.

The strain would prove to be genetically identical to isolates found in three clusters of adenovirus 14 disease over the following 18 months, the CDC said, but different in some respects from the reference strain, first isolated in 1955.

The finding suggests "the emergence and spread of a new [adenovirus 14] variant" in the U.S., the agency said in the Nov. 15 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

The later clusters were reported in 2007 in Oregon, Washington state, and Texas, the CDC said.

The largest outbreak took place from Feb. 3 to June 23 at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, where 27 patients were sent to the hospital with pneumonia, including five who were admitted to the intensive care unit.

One of the five required extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for about three weeks and ultimately died. Medical personnel collected throat swabs from 16 of the 27 -- including the intensive care patients -- and all tested positive for the virus.

Also, during that period, medical personnel collected and tested 423 specimens associated with an outbreak of febrile respiratory infection, of which, 268 tested positive for adenovirus. A little less than half of the specimens (44%) were also serotyped and 90% were adenovirus 14.

The deadliest outbreak, identified retrospectively, occurred in Oregon, after a local clinician reported multiple patients admitted to a single hospital for pneumonia over a five-week period in March and April.

Of the 17 specimens obtained, 15 were positive for adenovirus 14, the CDC said, leading Oregon public health authorities to review records from virology labs and find 68 people who tested positive between Nov. 1, 2006, and April 30, 2007.

Of those, 50 isolates could be serotyped and 31 were adenovirus 14, the CDC reported, while 15 were another serotype and four were not actually adenovirus.

Review of medical records for 30 of the 31 with adenovirus 14 showed that 22 patients required hospital care, 16 required intensive care, and seven died, all from severe pneumonia. Most of the dead were adults, but one infant also died.

In contrast, only two of the 13 non-type 14 patients whose charts were available needed hospital care, none needed intensive care, and none died. (See: IDSA: Outbreak of Severe Pneumonia Traced to Adenovirus 14)

In Washington, officials reported four patients -- one with AIDS and three with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease -- with cough, fever, or shortness of breath between April 22 and May 8, 2007.

Three required intensive care and mechanical ventilation for severe pneumonia, and after eight days of hospital care, the AIDS patient died, while the other patients recovered.

All four tested positive for adenovirus and the three with isolates available for serotyping were shown to have adenovirus 14.

The CDC urged clinicians to follow its 2003 guidelines for pneumonia care. Among other things, the guidelines suggested changes in ventilation practices:

Orotracheal rather than nasotracheal tubes should be used in patients who need mechanically assisted ventilation.
Noninvasive ventilation should be used to reduce the need for and duration of endotracheal intubation.
The breathing circuits of ventilators should be changed when they malfunction or are visibly contaminated.
When feasible, an endotracheal tube with a dorsal lumen should be used to allow drainage of respiratory secretions.

Surrender - I spend most of my time working for an association which has been busy for twenty-five years offering "... compassion to those who are scared and hateful, ... a word of kindness to those who are neglected and lonely, ... a part of ourselves to others for whatever the need might be, ... a silent blessing to those struggling in the world just to find a meal or clean water, ... and blessings to the dying children before they leave the Earth because no one heard their call for help." Amongst other things. I get paid for some of what I do for this association, but most of what I do I do for free. I work with young people, too, mostly helping them organise music and encouraging them to become confident in their creative potential - writing songs and poetry, dancing, theatre and also various workshops dealing, for example, with how to develop a new approach to the idea of money, power and basic human relationships.

I have learned in the course of a life which I nearly entirely wasted through my own stupidity and selfishness that Life is the most precious individual gift of all, one that we have all received, every one, and no one person's gift is greater than any other's.

When I was fifteen, I filed into an amphitheatre in my school to listen to the advice from what used to be called, in typical British neo-military style, a Careers Advisory Officer. His job was to help we who were approaching school-leaving age with sound guidance on the ways of the world.

This man's first phrase was the following - "Boys, the first thing you have to realise is that when you go out into the world, you'll be working not for love but for money."

The reply in my heart was resounding. That was not what I was going to do, and I acted on that. I became a musician and worked for the love of music. And almost no money.

The rest of my story is uninteresting, but all my life was sourced from that point. I've had the real privilege to raise five children, for whose intelligence and natural humanity I do not feel responsible, because they came not from me but from Life itself. Not one of them will ever take up arms against their brothers and sisters, and if I helped favour their development as people, I'm proud. But they will do what they choose, not what I think is right. However, to be truthful, one of the first things I learned as a father, like all fathers, is that there is NOTHING I would not do in order to protect my family. Thank God I never had to prove that.

When I began posting here, it was for reasons I've already stated several times - the most important message I have to share is the essential lesson I have learned by my own experience, rather than something I trawled from books. The one vital transformation must come, and in fact can only come, from within the human heart. Until we make an attempt to realise that we are all brothers and sisters, and apply the way of life that this entails, none of it will make any other change than more confusion. Lessons like, for example, love your neighbour as you love yourself.

I use prayer, and it has made that change for me. The idea of prayer and spirituality has become so degraded in our time that it triggers automatic rejection even from otherwise very smart people. So I have made an effort to express the truths I've learned in other ways. That's it.

I respect everyone I've exchanged with, agreement or not. From my experience of opening to others, I've learned that everyone without exception has not only a fascinating and vital story to tell - IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE - but also something worth while to share - IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE. And each one of us without exception has the deep desire to find our spiritual being, because we are all human, but we all look IN OWN OWN WAY.

That's why I don't think it's productive to reject even soldiers who seek exchange, (therefore evolution), because rejecting people who disagree with us is like rejecting people who do not speak our language. That's called racism, sexism, ism ism ism. It's more fruitful to make the effort to understand their langauge and try to get your message across in ways they may understand. And if you can't, let it go, because if that person is seeking, they will find. I know this because it happened to me, not because someone wrote it down for me.

The PTB are not only stealing our water, but our land, our minerals, our forests, our children, our aged and our sick. They are creating sickness while pretending to offer health, they are creating war while pretending to offer peace and freedom. They're not just Americans, but English, Russian, Chinese, African, French - anywhere that a human heart has been corrupted by the idea that life is a jungle and only the most vicious animal will survive, that's where they are. They're US. Because our education has been corrupted for centuries, and children grow sadder and colder and more vicious as they are pushed further and further away from their natural humanity. Pre-teens in my beautiful home country are now massively mired in the disease of alcoholism. Not just English kids. Look at the ravages of the drug culture in most of the countries of the Western world. Twelve-year olds blowing each others brains out in cities all over America. The root of it all is HUMAN GREED, which is a disease of the human spirit. And the evil promote it and feed on it. They farm us.

I'll finish with one thing about David - I don't know him, never will - but he came here to exchange, and to me - though this may be a false projection - he sounds like a man with some sort of moral spine and some sort of open mind. I'm prepared to accept that he made the choice of a military life (if indeed he's a soldier, which we actually don't know) for reasons which were honest for him at the time he made them. To protect and honour his country, for example, whether or not we feel he's right. He can still learn other ways of thinking and being.

What angers me most is not that young men and women are continually committing terrible acts of war, but that they are doing so because they have DELIBERATELY AND KNOWINGLY been taught that this is the right thing to do. Their courage, sacrifice and dedication in many cases is quite real, whether it's well-founded or not, and I am enraged that all these precious human qualities are squandered in this way. We all believed things we were told before we learned they were not true.

BUT throwing shit at him or others like him and screaming that he's a murderer is not going to help him evolve. And of course I'm not overlooking the terrible truth that any one of the millions of innocents killed by young soldiers won't get much chance to evolve either.

Some of our exchanges become tedious and boringly intellectual, I heartily agree. But I think it's more fruitful tha they exist than not.

You know what? I've never planted a tree. Ever. But I'll be planting vegetables in the spring, and honouring amongst other thngs the memory of my father, a gentle man who loved flowers and won prizes for his roses. And giving thanks if and when my spuds come up.

Best wishes

Abe -- you "lack" perspective:

I think you're referring to psychic "mutual climaxes." That's not orgasm counting -- at least not male orgasm counting. I've found that 3 is the limit for public psychic mutual climaxes because the third one creates a fairly strong physical reaction -- total body shiver for example, through arching the back -- releasing all the internal stress. I've seen that 3 times and twice I've seen females actually begin to physically stimulate themselves with their hands while I was sitting in full-lotus near them (both of them college students). Usually the physical language based on the psychic mutual climax is more subtle and usually two climaxes is enough because the third would be too intense for a public environment.

I've found that in more intimate settings the psychic mutual climax causes intense heat in the heart chakra, after about 5 climaxes, and then creates strong electromagnetic fields.

The key is not to eat food because food converts the electromagnetic paranormal healing energy back into electrochemical energy.

I've stopped counting psychic mutual climaxes after realizing these generalized dynamics and I start to see light around people's heads if I eat just a light meal a day, while sitting in full-lotus with lots of yin recipients around me.

If I stayed in my room then the yin source would be the lower half of my body, while my eyes are closed, with the palms facing my stomach, receiving the yang bliss-light shooting out of my forehead. Or possibly the same dynamic while standing with legs bent.

Usually I just shoot the yang bliss-light into the females at the free food kitchen where I might have lunch or in the fast food joints where I hang out -- or in the cafes -- or at work -- etc.

I shoot the yang bliss-light into males as well but, as I've stated, when they get charged up enough then they just convert that energy back into generative fluid that dissipates their electromagnetic paranormal healing from the bliss-light. This is because of the left-brain patriarchal right-hand projection of repression lower emotions as oppression.

So this is why I'm correcting your claim of "counting orgasms" -- psychic mutual climax is the sending of yang light-bliss into a yin electrochemical source and if that source is female then it remains internalized, as the ability to send the yang light-bliss by the male relies on using the female internal climax, via the right-side vagus nerve.

All the best,

Thanks to those who post here. You've helped my thinking and steered me to interesting resources. You're not just "talking among yourselves." When I get a free day, I will resolve most all of the debate questions here (and surpass 3G in egocentricity), but meanwhile pay attention to Shrub (great logic and wit, man) and now proceed talking among yourselves.

The secret of my last post again is "who" shoots the yang light-bliss into yin electrochemical sources? Is it "me" -- no it's the FEMALE FORMLESS AWARENESS that rises as the "mysterious gate" in the pineal gland.

Ego is a LEFT-BRAIN construction.

I watched a bit of Luciano Ercoli's DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT (1972) last night. Experimental 'Giallo' (guess one would call it). Should have watched DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS (1971) first, as it was made earlier. Trashy psychological murder mystery, with a tad of hardcore gore thrown in. Very well produced, however, and the print is top notch. Nice hommage to Bava right off the bat, with a woman's face being brutally punctured in with a spiked metal glove. Mostly a showcase for Giallo Queen/model Susan Scott. If you've seen Brian DePalma's Dressed to Kill (1980) with Michael Caine, it's along the same lines of genre in film. No long draw out type shower scenes alah Angie.Dickinson w/Ercoli though, Ercoli is incomprehensible lunacy straight away from start to finnish.

Hope the studies are going well uni cunts.

Here's his ideology statement -- he got the top senior thesis award at the U of MN for his Heidegger paper (but did not take the award as no money was offered):

from or something like that -- it means "Music of the Future"


The proliferation of cable television channels specializing in multifarious forms and genres of entertainment is not merely a result of technological progress, but an ever-obvious symptom of decades of collective ennui. Undoubtedly inspired by Kierkegaard's theory of "crop rotation" as a method of aesthetic diversion, Martin Heidegger pointed out in 1929 (over thirty years before the inauguration of the Internationale Situationniste and the politics of boredom) that the "fundamental attunement" of the technological, and mutatis mutandis informational, age is "profound boredom." Since "we have become bored with ourselves," perhaps with different backgrounds, in multimedia settings, on digital frequencies, we can again find ourselves, our own characters, interesting.


We can choose to live with regrets and in quiet desperation, or we can follow the leads of cinematic individuals who responded to the pain and suffering of existence with their whole beings beyond good and evil. Here cinema and the jargon of authenticity overlap. Like Heidegger's notion of authenticity, affirming the eternal return "snatches one back from the endless multiplicity of possibilities which offer themselves as closest to one--those of comfortableness, shirking, and taking things lightly--and brings Dasein [existence] into the simplicity of fate." In other words, we can, like many, live a boring, derivative film with a bad script, or we can affirm ourselves, our own characters, in a super-diegetic existence which will play interminably. Just as art is a mission that demands fanaticism, so is life. "If, in all that you will begin by asking yourself: is it certain that I will to do it an infinite number of times? This should be your most solid center of gravity." By this rule, each of us lives as the filmmaker creates.


The dissolution and thinking through of moral-amoral multivalences become increasingly too pretentious, too artificial, and not binding enough for today's mentalities. The trend hints at a more brutal way out of the tension, at an inclination to breaking loose, to massacre, to explosion, to catastrophe. . . . Fascist artistic release. Tense situations no longer call for mediation and defusing so much as for things to be blown to smithereens.

I assume you are not American and you have National Health Care in England???

You obviously missed the point of my comment but that is going on alot here lately.

I did not throw shit at anyone nor did I call anyone a murderer, but I will soon.........if....

David and Ericswan and anyone else , for the mere fact it was on local news station on TV

This story about chemtrails is an example of what a mere citizen in a little town in Arkansas can do to expose this kind of crime against all of us. This is what I meant when I said what are you going to DO??????

David, please take time to veiw this and don't insult us with your logic again. It hurts.

Anyway, I am respectfully weary of most of what I keep reading here lately and will wait patiently for what Jeff has to offer.

SHRUB: Thanks for reccomending SICKO. I wonder what kind of respect Fructedor would have for those doctors a UCLA Medical that sent that sick and disoriented woman in a cab to Skid Row saying it was the best place she could be dropped off after refusing to treat her.

OK I'll bite; The CABAL, Bush, Cheney, and scores of others in government positions, oil Co., Coporate, Big Pharma, US medical professionals, policy makers, gangs, religious entities, Black Ops, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and anyone else who is responsible for the loss of life on this planet....

are definitely "murderers". I will respectfully wait patiently until the all evolve.........

Ok a "two-gendered being" is not "undifferentiated" as is supposedly claimed by Rene Guenon -- he did not mean that because it's a logical contradiction. Guenon clarifies himself when he states that any talk of yin and yang is only in relation to material reality.

The "symbolic revolution" at 10,000 BCE initiated anthropocentric art for the first time -- the appearance of human figurines in art.

Before that art work was abstract or animals or some chimera paintings.

At the same time that male-female art work appeared, all female circular housing was destroyed, while rectilinear housing, based on plow agriculture was promoted.

The circle female housing as the Wu Chi is connected to the Earth-Lunar cycle, as for example matrifocal cultures had the females do the gardening or horticulture or gathering, based on the lunar calendar.

Consider what I just posted on -- just scroll to the bottom, click on forums, and see my comparative religion post.

I'll just repeat it here:

The passover is celebrated by Christians only during the Full Moon because Jesus means the Sun while the Gnostic (banned) Greek gospels claims that Jesus died and resurrected during the Solar Eclipse which can only happen at the New Moon.

So then when Pagan Easter merged with the Church it was a big debate - how can Jesus represent the matrifocal fertility power of the Moon conquering the Sun during a solar eclipse? It can't so no new moon passover.

This same debate happened in the Essene texts as well -- whether to use the Solar or Lunar calendar which represents the switch from a divergent, natural number system of complimentary opposites -- the original 60-based number system, whereby the ratio 5:4 meant the ORIGINAL SIN -- in synch with the Lunar god, and as an approximation of three dimensional spacetime -- the cube root of two. The same ratio 4:5 as logarithmic conversion is the harmonic resonance of Saturn and Jupiter. Quantum chaos has proven that when their orbits are in synch then the combined resonance sends a comet, turning to an asteroid, that destroys all

three-dimensional life on Earth.

Our two eyes give us bifocal depth for the illusion of three dimensions while the original Christian artwork had light auras around heads (as I can see) because female formless awareness was still achieved through the third eye.

So the magnetite meteorite (asteroid) as the original source of iron-based monotheism (the Kaaba for lunar-worship origins of Islam and the source of the Black Madonna from Egypt magnetite-meteorite worship and the source of Cybele worship in Anatolia, which became Diana black madonna worship in Europe).

This source happens because 5:4 is the moon conquering the sun (during the eclipse) as the original sin, so that three dimensional life is destroyed via comet-asteroids in synch with saturn-jupiter.

Again the moon is the left eye, right cerebrum, left cerebellum-pineal gland stellar resonance. The moon calendar is based on the natural number system -- 7 (law of octaves) x 4 (Tetrad) with 13 months.

I give the technical details in chapter 4 of my blogbook.

Basically 4:5 as the natural overtone harmonic of the complimentary opposite major third is converted to left-brain phonetic-based logarithmic math as 5:4 (the original Sin) thereby putting the Solar Freemasonic ideology over the lunar-stellar ideology.

In fact this was the obsession of NeoPlatonist Freemason John Scotus Erigena, as detailed by professor Joscelyn Godwin - the connection between 4:5 and the moon and Saturn and Jupiter.

For example in Egypt the Female Formless Awareness was known to be a cosmic reality, the source of all energy and matter and spacetime -- NUIT, empty awareness.

The earliest form of organized religion is the Turkana pastoralist animal sacrifice at the Solar Eclipse -- when the moon conquers the sun -- and so an animal must be sacrificed because the Sun is Sick.

This represents an early version of patriarchy -- fear of the female power. An even earlier one is the Eland Bull Ritual (female lunar fertility relying on the most primitive Bushmen harmonics -- a pentatonic scale) as paralleled with the Flute Goddess-Rainbow Serpent rituals.

The natural numbers as complimentary opposites based on "musiclanguage" are thereby lost and converted to anthropocentric logic and math and art work -- whether it's "two-being" or just "one-being" does not matter.

So this is from Professor Ernest McClain's article. He and I corresponded this summer about chapter 4 of my blogbook: "Secrets of the Greek Freemasonic Miracle" which concentrates on the connection between left-brain logic, math and music harmonics as complimentary opposites, used to create three-dimensional "containment" through 4:5, the major third, changed to 5:4, the cube root of two.

I should add that the question was presented as one of "efficiency" -- try adding the difference between the Lunar and Solar calendar using right-brain ideograms? So, as David E. Duncan notes in his book Calendar -- the switch to 10-based number system using phonetic language developed. But again this is assuming that Lunar calendar was ALREADY based on a "divide and average" Babylon math system -- not the complimentary opposite synchronization of 7 x 4 with 13 months equalling 364 days.

Babylon used logarithmics and was patriarchal while Sumeria and the early Indo-European Harrapan cities still had a matrifocal, ideogram, musilanguage, the latter also having a full-lotus Shiva statue.

Here's McClain:


The deified Sumerian numbers, taken over by Babylon, are 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 40, and 50, all fractional parts of "father" Anu/An = 60, head of the pantheon. Their fractional values and god names are indicated here with a brief description of their mythological functions.

Anu/An, 60, written as a large 1, "father of the gods" and earliest head of the pantheon, is any reference unit. He is equivalent in our notation to 60/60 = 1, where he functions, according to modern concepts, as "geometric mean in the field of rational numbers."

Enlil, 50 (5/6), "god on the mountain" possessing fifty names, is mankind's special guardian and was promoted to head the pantheon circa 2500 B.C. Enlil deities in base 60 what the Greeks knew as the human prime number, 5, in their base-1O harmonics. By generating major thirds of 4:5 and minor thirds of 5:6, he saved Sumerians tremendous arithmetical labor, as we shall note in due course.

Ea/Enki, 40 (2/3), "god of the sweet waters" and perhaps the busiest deity in Sumer, "organizes the earth," including the musical scale. He deities the divine prime number, 3, in the ratio of the musical fifth 2:3, the most powerful shaping force in music after the octave. (Notice that the trio of highest gods (40, 50, 60) defines the basic musical triad of 4:5:6 (do, mi, sol, rising, and mi, do, la, falling). The ratio 4:5 defines a major third and the ratio 5:6 defines a minor third, taken either upward or downward within the matrix of the musical octave.)

Sin, 30 (1/2), the Moon, establishes the basic Sumerian octave matrix as 1:2 30:60.

Shamash, 20 (1/3), the Sun, judges the gods.

Ishtar, 15 (1/4), is the epitome of the feminine as virgin, wife, and everybody's mistress.

Nergal, 12 (1/5), is god of the underworld.

Surrender - oh dear. I don't understand why I seem to have pissed you off. Sorry about that. I've tried to be clear.

"I assume you are not American and you have National Health Care in England???"

No, I'm English, I live in France, and pay for the little health care I require.

"I did not throw shit at anyone nor did I call anyone a murderer, but I will soon.........if...."

I didn't suggest you had thrown shit, etc, I tried to say that I feel it is counter-effective to insult people if you're trying to favour positive growth. However, if you're not, insults are as good as any other negative projection. And that's not meant to suggest that you're projecting negativity.

You very passionately asked the question of "... you guys..." what we were DOING about it all? I answered by telling you what I am trying to do. That's all.

I watched the chemtrails film a couple of days ago - I think Eric put it up. It's heartening, and so is the fact that, finally, it's made TV.

"I wonder what kind of respect Fructedor would have for those doctors a UCLA Medical that sent that sick and disoriented woman in a cab to Skid Row saying it was the best place she could be dropped off after refusing to treat her."

I haven't seen Sicko yet, because I haven't had time - but I have it ready to watch as soon as I can.

Those doctors - I would be disgusted with them, and if I were around, would probably try to see what I could do for the lady. I've done stuff like that before. However, if I were to engage in discussion with those doctors with a view to explaining what I see as the error of their ways, and in direct contradiction of the Hippocratic oath, I would try and present my case in a way they might understand. If I began insultingly and aggressively, I think I'd have less chance of getting my message across. That's all I'm saying.

Respect for everyone's basic human potential does not meaning condoning any old shit they might want to try. We have a 'moral obligation' to stand up for our own rights and for the rights of others if neccesary. I never said I support the War on Terra, since that's being suggested here. I don't.

"You obviously missed the point of my comment but that is going on alot here lately."

Yes it is - that's discussion, though, isn't it? Exchanging points of view. What was the point I missed?

"Anyway, I am respectfully weary of most of what I keep reading here lately and will wait patiently for what Jeff has to offer."

OK, noted. I'm looking forward to changing the subject too, and looking forward to Jeff's new post.

" Maybe he (Jeff) is right. It doesn't matter to you what he has to offer..."

As I pointed out a couple of times, I have tried to respect the content of Jeff's original post 'The Unnameable', which, as far as I could tell, dealt with experience and it's expression. And I never thought this was a private club.

Finally, we exchanged a few weeks ago, and you said you liked what I was saying. I really haven't said anything contradictory since then, though I've tried to explain what I mean to people who enquired.

"I will respectfully wait patiently until the all evolve........."

Surrender, doing what you're doing, I don't think you're waiting. Neither am I. I think you're working. So am I.

Ah "square Hebrew" derived from Aramaic based on Greek sources. FASCINATING!

That builds on the article you cited. My research cites the use of the lyre as the transistional linguistic device between Egypt and Babylon, via the middle East.

To conclude, bringing this back to Kali as a spiral -- this is time, as per the 60-based number system, defined by COMPLIMENTARY OPPOSITES that diverge to female formless awareness.

The cosmic mother Nuit in Egypt was also based on this model of a matrifocal cistern -- or sound-box -- that creates the cosmos. And in Egypt the ratio 2/3 was considered to be sacred but Western mathematics does not know why. Based on complimentary opposites in matrifocal culture, using the 60-based natural numbers, 2/3 was known to be the yang light-bliss. The secret importance of 2/3 in Egypt is completely lost to Western mathematicians since they're trained musicians first.

e-coli virus

Vittorio Storaro Cinematographer for Uccello dalle piume di cristallo, L' (1970) Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The (1970) (USA) Quite remarkable. Quick bird's eye view reference to a 'Scarlet Woman' film playing at a theatre. Then later DP on: 1900 (1976) directed by Bertolucci also starred a very young Robert DeNiro. The connection here is Bertolucci and Francis Coppola, of course. (and believe it or not...there is a connection btwn 1900 and Columbine--though I forgot what at the moment? they may have been reversed, which is quite telling due to the reoccurring theme of gender reversal in Giallo--which, I suppose, is a 'tip of the hat' to Hitchcock's Psycho (1960), in its own peculiar way, as is essentially all Giallo.)
later DP on: Apocalypse Now (1979) aka Apocalypse Now Redux (2001)

"Among the forms of social domination present in this giallo classic are those of encagement, exploitation and compulsive accumulation. " giallo colonialism?

Still obsessively sorting through all these giallo films(again). Check these out if you haven't already:

SHORT NIGHT OF THE GLASS DOLLS told from the perspective of a corpse in a morgue.
WHO SAW HER DIE ? haunting musical score by Ennio Morricone.
"4 Times That Night" Mario Bava (1972) which does the same thing--the retelling of a scene over and over. Not standard Mario Bava fair, but worth a look if only for the interior design. Kurosawa's use of 3 perspectives on a single narrative event in 'Rashomon' is certainly an 'inspiration' for Bava's use in '4 Times...


not e-coli

Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon aka Mansion of Madness (1972) Juan Lopez Moctezuma. (Mexico/Spain) A Fantastic Film ! Might be hard to find other than a DVD_R. Maybe here :

Alucarda (1975) This is a 'sister' film of the above. loosely a part two. Coincidently the US title was Sisters of Satan. Lots of scenes of hysterical naked women possessed by Satan. Legit DVD:

Mondo Macabro released (Feb. 22 2004) a legit DVD version (only previously available on DVD_R through Luminous ) of The Mansion of Madness aka Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon (1972) Directed by Juan Lopez Moctezuma. (Mexico/Spain) Moctezuma is closely related to Alejandro Jodorowsky, so if you liked El Topo, The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre'll like this stuff...

Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. (1970) Czech Horror & Fantasy. Truly amazing !

The Bad Seed (1956) William Castle-ish but too "legit" to be considered so. Very fucking strange and incoherent ending. Remember your friend Nick and his weird rural Southern fetisheseseses.

The Virgin of Nuremberg (1965?) The other Antonio Margheriti classic. Nice clean transfer. "'ThePunisher' with a ghastly Nazi past stalks the castle corridors and dusts off the rusty, spiked iron maiden and other cruel..."

Guts of a Virgin
aka Entrails of a Virgin. Also a PainKiller album, if I'm not mistaken. Available at last on DVD (not a bootleg): NTSC only, but you cool euro-tech types out there probably have a multi-region player.

"Prepare to be shocked, offended, horrified and repulsed by every single frame of this unbelievable Japanese cult classic…"

The film was banned in the UK at the time. I think the album used still images from the film. The film might still be banned in the UK, but I'm not sure. There's a link from the Guardian.Film site to banned films-- don't have it handy.

Synapse-films is a great little company. They also did a loving digital remastering and restoration of "Danse Macabre" aka "Castle of Blood. B.Steele at her best.

Yeah here's the excerpt from my blogbook, actually from an old blog entry:

"The secret of Freemasonry is that Sirius-Orion is the apex of the precessional cycle (moon-sun torque) by representing the Hunter who kills Canis Major — the Hunted Bull."

The above should be in my blogbook -- so the moon-water resonance of the Nile-tidal cycle was replaced by Sun-based imperialist Freemasonic farming using slave labor, as Sirius became the Brahman (Bull-GOTT) symbol through the influence of the sea invaders -- the Hittites.

Peter Levenda and another poster on his forum, note that Robert Temple was sent to the Dogon research by Stargate CIA mind controller Dr. Andrija Puharich.

You should really read "The Stargate Conspiracy" by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince.

FBI reviewing Tasering of sleeping man; no charges file

The Associated Press

NORTH BRADDOCK, Pa. - Two North Braddock police officers won't face criminal charges for Tasering a man who was asleep at home. But the FBI will review the incident for possible civil rights violations.

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. says county police determined Officers Gerard Kraly and Lukas Laeuricia (loo-REE'-see-uh) didn't commit a crime when they Tasered Shawn Hicks, who was sleeping on his couch.

Police came to Hicks home because they were alerted by a silent security alarm at his home about 2 a.m.

Hicks says the officers Tasered him again after he woke up and showed them ID to prove he lived at the home. Hicks' attorney says he will pursue civil action.


Information from: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

G3, I think you may have pissed someone off with this;

Or we can hang out with a bunch of repressed whites kissing ass to "climb the ladder," thereby projecting their oppression -- in posh organic eateries, that fly in organic tomatoes from across the country.

The real question is why was Hitler a vegetarian who ranted against animal torture -- like so many of today's suburban-based activists?

Good call, and you started your writing actually addressing the substantive element within someone ELSES writing. Wow, you might get to move out of your mommas’ house yet! But, then you break down and revert to expressions of DESIRE for recognition. Weird. Weird I tell you. Anyway good information, even if I disagree with how you apply your assumptions. Oh, did I mention G3 that you are a social retard?

Ah this reminds me of Freud's attempt to find a resolution for his "death drive" -- oh how to sublimate it. So he gave up and then resorted to turning the "death drive" to an aggression complex.

JZ Young, FRS, discusses this in his amazing "Programs of the Brain" (CUP, Gifford Lecture Series) -- how Freud considered meditation to be primitive narcissicism.

What's highly ironic about this is the recent research on the Nazi's Freudian brainwashing center. Freudian psychology provides the ultimate "commodity fetish" control mechanisms to keep that sex drive sublimated so that Nature can be converted into the ubermensch holographic astral Aryan creature (found at your local Bourgie organic eatery).


Also my organic slam was directly stolen from this really beautiful former coworker of mine who accosted me on the street on Friday. My ribs still hurt as her critiques of ecofascism (my current workplace) had me laughing non-stop for a half hour.

To start this wonderful interaction I just did reverse-breathing and shot yang bliss-light into her eyes.

She's now training to be a nurse and informed me that the private hospital claims to be "Feng Shui" yet has a McDonald's where 80% of the nurses eat at daily.

That's when I put my finger to my head like a gun and stated: Heal Thyself.

Yes but Robert Anton Wilson tagged Bucky correctly as a Solar Dynasty God resurrected -- Bucky still used the square root of two, despite his claim that he would later drop it. He didn't practice what he claimed to preach. I'm against NeoPlatonic mathematics, despite it being the imperial matrix of today's technology.

I was thinking about this last night in full-lotus. You can, of course, read further details in my blogbook -- on the "secrets of the Freemasonic Greek Miracle," etc.

Essentially NeoPlatonism arose from the early use of the Pythagorean Theorem (BEFORE IRRATIONALS) from a "divide and average" approach to geometric series.

So the tension in Egypt for example was the right-angled triangle as irrational with the hypotenuse being either Horus or Set (jesus or satan) while the height was Osiris and the base was Isis.

The same problem was addressed by Marsilio Ficino, building on Plato, with the 3-4-5 triangle and the 2-3-4 triangle.

So the equilateral triangle which is the key focus of Bucky Fuller can either be "two" 2-3-4 triangles or two 3-4-5 triangles -- as a "divide and average" or greater then less convergence scheme.

Kepler made this the key focus of why he could not accept the Golden Ratio, as I discuss in my blogbook.

Again the key point that Bucky did not understand is that 2:3:4 are COMPLIMENTARY OPPOSITE harmonics as yin and yang with 2:3 as yang and 3:4 as yin, creating a transduction of energy that "collapses" form into a vortex resonating back to female formless awareness.

Yes my life was steeped in music, starting as classical, jazz and church -- then through my neighbors -- the Beatles (very deeply). I started classical piano at age 6 and performed a senior piano recital at the end of high school, after training in composition, orchestration, theory and ear training. I perfomed Bach's Italian Concerto by memory along with my own compositions, Mozart, Brahms, Ravel, Debussy, and many others. While at the same time I played in a hardcore avant-punk band that blended prog rock, classical and blues-country-ethnic styles and then I played in a jazz band, a blues folk group, a reggae band and finally with a free jazz flute street musician.

I studied music out East in the Amherst Valley with a Hungarian harpiscordist and an African-American female experimental Jazz composer who teaches at Hampshire College. At UW-Madison I was accepted into the composition program under a new self-designed major. My focus was world music but the teachers pushed serial computer music then the cutting-edge at the East Coast Ivy League schools. My orchestration transcription of a Schoenberg piano sonata to string quartet was called "communist" at a private meeting initiated by my professor and I was told to redo all my past assignments even though they previously were A-B grades. I realized this was because I was a prominent activist at rallies organized right by the music school and also because I had strongly criticized a composition of one of my professors.

So I continued my music research, as I had at Hampshire College, in an interdisciplinary manner which led me to my tentative masters thesis, written in 1996, called: The Fundamental Force. This got me accepted into the U of MN masters program for liberal arts, a self-designed degree, since my monograph was praised in letters by cultural studies professor Richard Leppert, Slavoj Zizek, and others.

My continued masters degree music research was reviewed by an anthropology professor, a music theory professor and a religious studies professor.

Just to give an example of the unique approach of my masters thesis and subsequent blogbook research -- I was reviewing the overtone throat singing harmonic analysis and their approach completely ignores the relation of symmetric logic to the development of equal-tempered tuning.

So it's assumed that Just Tuning arose because the natural overtones also use natural numbers. Yet at the same time it's assumed that the actual 12 note scale was derived from the mathematical deduction of the first overtone -- the fifth as 2:3 -- extended as fifths and then inverted back into an octave scale: called the "circle of fifths" in western music.

As is well known the 12th fifth overtone does not return to the same frequency as the 7th octave, showing that the natural overtones "transduce." But again the natural overtones are judged by the extension of the Tetrad -- the fifth-fourth inversion to the other natural ratios: 9:8, 5:8, 4:5, 6:5, etc.

What is left out of this analysis is that the 4th-5th overtone inversion is actually ASYMMETRICAL HARMONICS, something that challenges even the validity of phonetic based language. This is the focus of chapter 4 of my blogbook, information praised by math professor Joe Mazur as "very important."

I discovered the kernal of this model in my masters thesis: the Perfect 5th, 2:3 is Yang and the Perfect 4th, 3:4 is Yin. Then my blogbook finishes off the job and the math was reviewed and praised by Professor Joe Mazur -- despite the fact that the only reason I ever contacted him originally was to tell him I disagreed with his book. He then informed me of his new book, the Motion Paradox, which I also disagreed with yet displayed enough understanding for him to encourage me to write an Amazon review, even though it would be negative. haha.

But then Professor Joe Mazur asked for my personal comments to be added to my music-math-logic research before I submitted it to the MAA Monthly, as per his recommendation.

So he got the last laugh. haha.

Well it's the fibonacci series if that's what you're getting at? Trick question of course! The best way to understand this fibonacci series is that expressed as the Golden Ratio it's actually just a continued fraction of 1 plus 1 divided as 1 which only makes sense in terms of the TIME groupings of iteration. So we are taught that the natural number harmonics are actually the "harmonic series" as reciprocal fractions, 1/n as a divergent series, which is closely related to the Fibonacci series expressed as the golden ratio continued fraction of one plus one divided by one.

This actually doesn't make any sense -- unless again you realize that the Fibonacci series is based on the assumption of logarithmic defined time -- not time as a divergent series of complimentary opposite harmonics.

The New Age scene teaches that Nature uses the Fibonacci Series but Nature needs to be "evolved" through science use of the Golden Ratio -- why is this?

The answer, again, is in my blogbook -- chapter 4: the ORDER OF INFINITY MUST BE REVERSED so that Plato established "negative infinity" as zero (from the Brahmins), added it to the logarithmic harmonics of the Babylonians and then created the Golden Ratio and the square root of two.

Again Kepler figured this out as well -- 5:8 must be reversed to 8:5 AS A LOGARITHMIC SERIES -- not as the complimentary opposites of yin and yang as 3:4 and 2:3. He was against this "bait and switch" secret of Freemasonry.

Further details in my blogbook:

On a more practical note let's quote from tonight's read:

"Over dinner, determined to lift our spirits, we sang to the camels and the wilderness with as much gusto as our dry throats allowed.... Judging from all outward signs the camels were not impressed by 'You Are My Sunshine.'... The next day we were almost too sick to walk at all....Yes! It was water."

Here's the crux of my argument from "The Secret of the Freemasonic Greek Miracle" chapter -- it's, of course, out of context, but at least gives the info:

Now finally we can proceed to the actual continued proportion proof using music harmonics. If the cube root of two is the value for X and if the cube root of two was approximated as the music ratio 5/4 then A:X::X:Y::Y:2A with A as 1 and 2A as 2 and X as the cube root of two gives the following result. By doubling the octave to 4, so that
Archytas could apply his geometric mean, the continued proportion of Hippocrates can also be cubed so that A is 1 and 2A is 8 and the proportion is 1:2::2:4::4:8. Since the cube root of this equation means that X equals 5/4 then the cube root of four, as Y, gives the harmonic ratio of 8:5, the complimentary opposite of 5/4 (the major Third, 5/4, is inverted as the minor Sixth, 8:5).


That's the secret of the Greek Miracle -- converting Pythagorean harmonics into the continuum.

It should be noted that the Golden Ratio A:B::B:A + B must have the order reversed to A - B for a quadratic solution using zero and similarly the Harmonic Mean also does not work if zero is used. For the 8:5 Pentgram as the original origin for the discovery of incommensurability, via "mutual subtraction" of side lengths using the 60-based number
system (and not the continued proportion Pythagorean Theorem proof in Euclid) see, "The Discovery of Incommensurability by Hippasus of Metapontum," by Kurt Von Fritz, The Annals of Mathematics, 1945. The Fibonacci Number series, 1,1,2,3,5,8 must have its order reversed to 8:5 (see H.E. Huntley's Divine Proportion) to achieve the quadratic-based irrational Golden Ratio -- for the same reason that enabled Archytas to approximate the square root of two as 9/8 cubed, and to double the cube, using 5/4. Robert Lawlor's book Sacred Geometry gives further connections between music, Archytas, and the Golden Ratio.

The Golden Ratio, which "governs black holes" (Dr. Mario Livio), and is found in special relativity, can now be seen to arise from the inversion of the minor Sixth music interval, from 5:8 to 8:5. This simple harmonics analysis of the doubling of the cube reveals a paradox in symmetry that appears to be on the order of Heisenberg's discovery of uncertainty. As Guy Murchie describes in his book Music of the Spheres, Heisenberg considered extremely long radio waves but they would be blind to the position of the electron since energy is proportional to frequency. From uncertainty came Max Born's discovery of the violation of the commutative principle, just as in the Pythagorean Tetrad whereby C to G is 2/3 and G to C is 3/4. More recent applications of nonlinear resonance enables the creation of acoustoelectric energy from the pressure of bones. Maybe the orthodox Pythagorean shamans were correct after all.

Hey Sounder, after seeing your post on the Pgh. police, I really had to laugh.

Cops around here were always seriously misguided.

Here's the guy they should be tasering:

"A Troy Hill man was arrested last night after police said he physically and sexually assaulted his live-in girlfriend's 10-month-old daughter.

Clinton Smith, 30, is charged with aggravated assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, reckless endangering another person and child endangerment.

The child's mother, who was not identified, called paramedics about 10 p.m. yesterday when she returned to her home in the 1300 block of Herman Street in Troy Hill and found the toddler unresponsive, police said.

The child was in cardiac arrest and had visible indications of abuse, police said. She was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side and then to UPMC Children's Hospital in Oakland, where she is in critical condition, police said."

The kid died last night.

10 months old & he fucking raped her. Then he beat her. She also had a human bite mark around her nipple. Now if the Pgh. police had any brains at all, they'd be tasering that motherfucker every minute of every day for the rest of his miserable excuse for a life.
Although that would still be less than he deserves.
But he'll probably get a cell with cable & 3 squares on this taxpayer's nickel.
Of course, he might pull the death penalty, but since they've outlawed drawing & quartering & flaying alive, whatever that death would be it would be far more humane than he deserves.

What's that movie spook/soldier phrase?

Oh yeah..."Terminate with extreme prejudice."

I'd amend that to "terminate with extreme prejudice & ruthlessly infinite patience."

Fuck him & the dysfunctional horse he rode in on.

& Mr. Gee, your mentioning of the fibonacci sequence made me think the film 'Pi'.

Have you ever seen it?

It's one of my favorite films & my ultimate fav. part occurs at the end when the protagonist, utterly fed up with the paranoia & conspiratorial drama, takes a drill & rams it into the side of his head, exorcising those demons waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more effectively than any priest ever could.

I can relate.

I'll leave whatever quibbles I have with your long posts unsaid though.
I will say that if you can do what you say you can do, then I'd recommend that you get busy.
The number of broken sick fucks out here is legion, & each moment they stay unhealed a tragedy is slowly forming.

Personally I tried meditation 3 times in my life & all got out of it were 3 nice naps.

But I wouldn't take that as any last word on the subject.
I can't be hypnotized either.
& tv ads, rather than making me collapse in frenzied seizures of blind consumerism, just make me physically ill.

While I've been fascinated by the paranormal for most of my life, I can't say that much has actually happened to me.
Once, when I was about 19, I got into photography & I used to putter around this old Catholic cemetary taking pictures.
One showed the shadowed outline of a man who appeared to be wearing a slouch hat and a long black cape, a la The Shadow.
When I saw it, I went back to the exact spot where I took it & I figured out exactly how it happened.
I was standing in front of a large black cross with the sun behind it.
That combination produced the image.
it also had other tell-tale signs of double exposure that I won't get into.
But I decided to show it to everyone I saw as if it were unexplained & mysterious.
One guy in a bar dropped it & backed away from me saying, "You're fucking cursed man."
Another guy, a good friend of mine who was actually studying photography, completely missed all the give-aways and thought it was entirely genuine.
I even talked him into, while we were 3 sheets to the wind, mounting a 2 a.m. vigil at the cemetary.
After we hopped the wall the 1st thing I noticed was that there wasn't any sound. Now this was an inner city boneyard, so, even at 2 a.m., there would be traffic noise.
Not to mention middle of summer insect noise, but there was nothing.
We wandered around in this deathly silence for about 10 minutes when we both heard the unmistakeable sound of rusty hinges creaking open.
That's when my buddy bolted & I had to follow him
We re-hopped the wall and stood across the street, still in complete silence, when this black LTD came roaring over the top of the hill with its lights out.
I said to my buddy, "Hey, his headlights are out."
At that moment,his headlights popped on & he zoomed passed.
We then noticed that the sound was back.

Paranormal phenomena or bullshit hallucination?

I lean towards the latter myself.

I did see a ufo the other night.
It was a disc of light against a black cloudy rain filled night sky.
I stood staring at it for awhile & was sufficiently interested to get my binoculars.
Strangely enough, with the binoculars it just became a blurry blob.
I then noticed that there were wires going into my neighbor's house at the very peak of his house.
Behind his house another neighbor has a garage with an outside light that they keep on all effing night long.
That light was reflecting off a section of the rain soaked wire at the very top producing the illusion of a disc shaped light against the black sky.

To put it another way, I think I'm stuck amongst the 93% who just scratch there head and go, "Huh?"


Tazmic, thanks for the Soviet spy video.
"Very interesting," I say in my best Arte Johnson voice.

& Shrub, I do appreciate your praise & I send it back at ya.
Your tenacity is too cool pal.

&, because I know that you appreciate this Human Comedy/Tragedy as much as I do I'm gonna tell you about Max.

He was a new hire, started about 2 months ago.
He was about 55, ex-Navy veteran who quit(?) the post office after 25 years. He was in Iraq during the 1st Gulf War Massacre.
Now, when I first worked with him, he seemed like this quiet older gent, married with an adult child. He talked about his church and such.
Then he started coming in reeking of booze.
This quiet guy starts swearing like a...ah...well, a sailor.
Anyway, one day, he's going out for a smoke break, and one of the clients jumps up & wants to go with him.
So he takes him.
Now, mind you, the client had no shoes on and only a t-shirt.
It was about 42 degrees outside & we'd had a frost the night before so the ground was cold.
I wasn't working that night, but my 2 buddies, Chuck & Mike were there.
They said that at first, they thought he just had the client out in the vestibule while he stood outside & smoke his coffin nail.
Then Mike happens to glance out our window and sees Max walking with this shoeless & coatless retarded guy around the campus.
Mike calls Chuck to the window & they stand staring in slack-jawed amazement.
Now, my building sits on a hill. We have all the behaviors so, consequently, we're kind of at the ass end of the campus and you can see a good chunk of it.
The campus is about 5 football fields long. The path he took him on covered about 3 football fields.
42 degrees & he's leading a shoeless and coatless retarded man around like it's mid July.
So, Chris runs into him & Chris, being the cool guy that he is, offers to take the client someplace warm while Max runs up and gets him shoes and a coat.
Max loudly insisted that he thought the client may be part Native American & he thought the client wanted to walk around that way because he followed him outside.
He said, "He has his fucking rights."
A client who has the relative i.q. of your average tree stump.
If he saw the guy playing with a band saw, would he just automatically assume he was gonna build a doll house.
Because my first impression would be EEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH! He's gonna cut his fucking arm off.
& I'd try to take it away from, all "rights" be damned.
But Shrub, what do you think Max could have possibly been thinking?
Is it possible to make it to 55 and be that fucking stupid?
Needless to say, they canned him on Friday.

from "the wit & the staircase"

Another Damn Song
The artist Dario Robleto visited us here in Los Angeles last week. He has been collecting 50 pairs of lovers' heartbeats for a while now. He took this photo of me and my boyfriend of ten years, artist Jeremy Blake, recording each others' hearts in our Venice pad.

Hearing Jeremy's heart like this was amazing, like staring through a telescope at a vast and previously undiscovered world. The beats sounded so powerful, and yet so temporary. We are just another damn song....

Dario says he will record the beats when he is done on a vinyl record, which he then will turn into a petroleum jelly that the purchaser can rub over their chest to soothe heartache.

He is selecting the couples slowly and very carefully.

The piece will be called "Balm of 100 Lovers."

Who groans beneath the Punic Curse
And strangles in the strings of purse
Before she mends, must sicken worse

Her living mouth shall breed blue flies
And maggots creep about her eyes
No man shall mark the day she dies

Ten years, fifty days, and three
Clau-Clau-Clau shall given be
A gift that all desire but he

To a fawning fellowship
He will stammer, cluck, and trip
Dribbling always with his lip

PentaCostas: Coast-to-Coast

No one hit anyone. Yeah, people were yelling a little bit, you know, but it's part of life. The idea is to go and get something done.- Al Davis


The Checker Auto Parts 500 at Avondale, Arizona on Veteran's Day, November 11, 2007

CheckersBorn: 1952

Location of death: New York
Cause of death: unspecified
Remains: Buried, Bide-a-Wee Pet Cemetery, Wantagh, NY

Gender: Female

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Namesake of 1952 Nixon speech

Mother: Boots

next up with PentaCostas: Coast to Coast. This week, striker David Beckham Spice chimes in and Travis twit.

Well, if it has to do with Earl Turner and it has tits, maybe we can get Denzel Washington and Jenna Jameson.

"Instant replay of magnificence....Nobody is racing better right now, or even posing a viable challenge. Jimmie Johnson is the "Man of the Season" and will be deemed Champion, rightly so, because he has all but earned the title."

Joe D'Amato died of a heart attack in 1999 in Rome unfortunately. After a long a prodigious career, included are other smash favorites as:

Emanuelle e gli ultimi cannibali (1977) (credited as Aristide Massaccesi)
... aka Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals
... aka Emanuelle's Amazon Adventure
... aka Trap Them and Kill Them

. And they'd put his ass in fucking camp in a bird turd's heartbeat.

Notti erotiche dei morti viventi, Le (1980)
... aka Erotic Nights of the Living Dead
... aka Nite of the Zombies (USA: promotional title)
... aka Notte degli zombies, La (Italy)
... aka Notti erotiche, Le (Italy: video box title)
... aka Sexy Nights of the Living Dead (USA)

Btw, Porno Holocaust is a sort of follow-up sequel to Erotic Nights of the Living Dead.

Contamination .7 (1990) (credited as David Hills)
... aka The Crawlers (USA)
... aka Troll 3 (USA)
... aka Troll III: Contamination Point 7 (USA)

Maybe we can get Phil Anselmo instead of Denzel Washington, Jenna Jameson is a huge Necrophagia fan.

Necrophagia: Nightmare Scenerios (2004) and Necrophagia: Sickcess (2004) videos both directed by Vince D'Amato. Jenna stars in Necrophagia: Nightmare Scenerios. The question is: Not sure if Vince is related to Joe D'Amato (sometimes also credited as Hugo Clevers, O.J. Clarke and Raf De Palma), the famous Italian director of Holocausto Porno(1981) aka Porno Holocaust.

A group of castaways wash ashore on a deserted island in this Italian sex/gore movie. They are unaware that a sex-crazed radioactive monster is also on the island. He attacks and rapes several of the women, who die horrible deaths because his sperm is radioactive. The survivors must find a way to either escape the island or kill the monster.

If we can get Vince D'Amato, you'll have a sure fire underground cult smash.

If it weren't for a new rule that came into being, we'd have played three years in a row in the championship game. - Al Davis

Funny this should be your topic, Jeff -- just a few days ago, I was discussing with a fellow blogger in comments how big the Transformers movie is with service personnel. Very strange, and it's funny how, despite the supposed anti-American/anti-military stance of Hollywood, there's no shortage of instances where directors and actors effusively praise the DoD for their cooperation in filming scenes and consulting for continuity and such.

The asymmetrical inversion does not rely on the Harmonic Mean because that uses the one-to-one correspondance of letter and number, based on zero, the Freemason-Brahmin cipher system.

Chapter 4 of my blogbook gives the details. You can just read my blog book - the Pythagoreans just relied on the Tetrad -- while Archytas developed the application of Babylonian's Harmonic and Arthimetic Mean with his addition of the Geometric Mean.

Movie Girl asked on the last thread if people here 'followed their dream'. I did and I do. I also determined that for me it's best to separate my vocation from my avocation. Less pressure to conform that way.

I did not read comic books much but I still had a superhero moment where I felt like I could 'save the world'. This thought was followed immediately with, Hah, I'll bet everybody has that thought, and yet the world seems to be such a screwed up place. Why is that feeling there? Is this an inherent element within us, or is there any reality behind the fantasy? At this time I also felt that all my ‘knowledge’ was heresy and not to be trusted. I wanted knowledge yet I was afraid of being conditioned or brainwashed into representing the world in the same ways that the ‘smart’ people do, the ones that have fucked up the world up until now.

The irony of ‘superheroes’ promoting the screwing up of the world even as they find salvation in a cartoon bubble should not be lost.

Hey Richard,

Yeah...that dude was a real pip. Thankfully, he didn't go Postal on youse guys.

I never got into Comics, so I'm probably the odd man out here. I know Movie Girl and Surrender were big Comic Book fans and Negger is a huge Terminator fan...but it just never appealed to I said, CIA mind-control techniques just don't work on me...I wish they did, because then I would finally fit in with the "In" crowd.

Hey Surrender, I'm glad you watched Sicko. If you get a chance, watch the videos Mark posted in the previous thread about Cuba's Accidental Revolution. They are excellent, as well, and his data about water usage is illuminating, and helps to dispel certain myths propagated by the sensational press.

Also, you all need to check this 5 part documentary out. It was posted by Sweejak in the Video Links thread on the forum. Great stuff...and thanks to Sweejak for posting it. I knew much of it, and had seen some of it before, but never combined like this.

Evidence of Revision

Also, Surrender, you're right to ignore Negger. What he said was disgusting. Only a massive bigot would use the word "cunt." That word is hateful, and how anyone could refer to you as such is beyond belief.

Jeff, a fascinating post... too bad hardly anybody seems to actually be discussing the actual content???

I'm really interested in seeing where you're chasing this notion... Though on one level, I have to wonder if you're reading too much into the material you're investigating. Creative work is often powerful and memorable because it embodies contradictions.

For example, the screenplay of Transformers, widely hailed by many conservative viewers as embodying their values, was written in part by John Rogers -- one of the more consistently, cleverly and passionately anti-war and pro-progressive voices of "leftist Hollywood" on the net. In one memorable post, he slams the conservative commentators who embraced the movie as representing "their" values and goes on to argue that:

"Demonizing each other is a way the Bastards in Suits try to keep the game going, and keep their little scams in place, so we don't suddenly notice that we're all on the same side... and despite our many disagreements, maybe we'd like all the professional hate-mongers to bugger off now, please."

Likewise, Ditko, though a Randian didact in later years, was responsible for Mr. A, yes... but he was also largely responsible for Doctor Strange, whose mindbending landscapes became a touchstone for 'sixties psychenauts.

And I can't speak to Mr. Lee's politics... but I think most people would agree that his collaborator Jack Kirby, who was at least as, or more responsible for the creation of the Marvel stable, possessed a sense of old school blue collar liberalism. He was always for the little guy, the underdog, and the greatest horror he could conceive of was "the Anti-Life Equation" in his DC Comic The New Gods: a formula that saps free will, the secret key of fascism. And in the aforementioned "X-Men," the heroes are the mutants -- the outsiders who are struggling for the right to assert their identity and celebrate their difference while the larger world, fearful and bent on conformity, hunts them down and persecutes them. In Iron Man, the militarists might be the heroes -- but in X-Men and The Hulk, they're almost invariably the heavies, xenophobes bent on destroying whatever they can't understand.

You're certainly not the first to notice the links between Iron Man and fascism. The "Civil War" storyline that has shot through much of the Marvel line in the last two years was supposed to be a superhero-world parallel to the Constitutional chill that has settle on our own nation. For superheroes, anonymity is no longer an option -- just as the abuses of FISA have changed our concepts of privacy. The leader of the pro-registration, pro-government forces is Iron Man. In theory, and in the press releases, the idea was supposedly to present an even-handed argument where readers could decide to side with either faction. In practice, Iron Man generally comes across as a tin-plated fascist and it's clear where the sympathies of most of the creative folk lie.

It's all in the game

"North America's getting soft, patron, and the rest of the world is getting tough. Very, very tough. We're entering savage new times, and we're going to have to be pure and direct and strong, if we're going to survive them." - Videodrome

Perhaps you've seen this:

Venezuela lawmakers blast video game

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- A U.S. company's video game simulating an invasion of Venezuela is supposed to hit the shelves next year, but it's already raising the ire of lawmakers loyal to President Hugo Chavez.


Pandemic describes Mercenaries 2: World in Flames as "an explosive open-world action game" in which "a power-hungry tyrant messes with Venezuela's oil supply, sparking an invasion that turns the country into a war zone." The company says players take on the role of well-armed mercenaries.


Lawmaker Gabriela Ramirez said "Mercenaries 2" gives a false vision of Chavez as a tyrant and Venezuela as being on the verge of chaos. She said the game could be banned under a proposed law aimed at protecting Venezuelan children from violent video games.

"Pandemic has no ties to the US government," says Greg Richardson, the firm's vice president of commercial operations. That's the sound of hairs splitting. Pandemic Studios is a Pentagon subcontractor through the aegis of the "Institute for Creative Technologies," launched by the US Army in 1998 with $45 million as a go-between with the entertainment and gaming industries. Pandemic is the developer of military training simulations such as Full Spectrum Command, commercially available as Full Spectrum Warrior for gaming on Playstation and XBox. ("A quantum-leap forward in battlefield simulation" says Game Informer. "Enlist Now" for updates.) "Within days of its release" in 2004, "gamers figured out the cheat code to unlock the Army-only version hidden on the commercial discs, featuring less flashy graphics but smarter opponents." (Gee, how careless can the Army get?)

The Pentagon is co-parenting Pandemic with its unlikely - or possibly inevitable - same sex sugar daddy: U2's Bono.

Bono's company Elevation Partners spent $300 million last November to bring the (Pentagon contractor) Studio together with Bioware "to create the world's best funded and largest independent game development house." Now there's a cause.

America's New Flesh is machine-scarred from its generational incubation in immersive battlefields which are, like Bono sings, even better than the real thing. Meanwhile, the real thing becomes just another level of play, until you play it, survive it, and return with the Home Version. Diplomacy is never on the table, except as a board game that fewer young people have the patience to engage. So it has to be Grand Theft Oil, when some "power-hungry tyrant" in Venezuela "messes" with America's petroleum. War is the last option. Play is the first.

Defending World in Flames, Pandemic publicist Chuck Norris says "although a conflict doesn't necessarily have to be happening, it's realistic enough to believe that it could eventually happen." Or, as in the words of Brian O'blivion, "The battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena."

It's been fought, and maybe decided, for this generation.

So it's a nice continuing theme, Jeff. To group some other examples hoping to make a theme stick let's look at 60 years of this process of heavy institutionalized cultural military control in the USA in some links below.

The mind controllers have only one last thing to do - to overlay the message BY SUBCONSCIOUS ASSOCIATION switching from fiction back into reality! All movie mind control works this way: the sick belief is planted within the framework of the fictitious world and taken into the real world by subconscious association! The scenes are usually cut very quickly here. It is called "confusing the two worlds" [real and fictitious.]"

[all about the toy industry and the military interconnections; by the way the Third Reich was big on consumer fascism, so was Italy in the 1930s and the forms of private clothing styles were fascist--nothing was truly private, all was The State; The Third Reich had individualized 'hero toys' of its fascist leadership as well to get the little Hitler Youth fixating (via entertainment, as Goebells always insisted, to use propaganda with people's guard down in play) the pre-teen ages to be later adult supporters of the Reich in a perpetual adolescent innocence as encouraged.]

Ain't that a fact. 300 is a fantastic example of war time propaganda.


"You know damn well the kid operating the controls grew up playing militaristic video games."

Bono working at one remove with the Pentagon, on just such a video game , was noted above by Jeff many posts ago. What is interesting to me is that the 'real military simulations' are actually the same product later sold to the general public with a tweak of more graphical pizazz sugar coating. The society is truly training on direct Pentagon materials in its consumerism.

Here's some other examples, from:

Pentagon Runs Hollywood [so its not surprising that mass media encourages entrainment to the military fantasy world]
Ben Gunn, March 30th 1999

This is a translated article from the Swedish Newspaper "Hallandsposten", on March 26th 1999:

Military movies are popular right now, but it's not critical movies they are making in Hollywood. On the contrary, the American Military Headquarter Pentagon is often allowed to decide upon big parts of the manuscripts. This is revealed in the media magazine "Brills Content".

US Military has officers who's job is to discuss film projects with Hollywood. The military is allowed to read the manuscript in advance and often come up with suggestions on changes, especially when it comes to parts that give a negative picture of the military.

An example: In the script to the movie "Asteroid" an American space-shuttle is sent into space with nuclear weapons onboard for to burst the asteroid which threatens the world, into pieces. But Pentagon didn't like the idea, as USA had signed a treaty against nuclear weapons in space.

The military think they get such good promotion in the Hollywood films they choose to participate in, that they lend equipment and [military] personnel for free [in commercial films]. The only thing the film companies need to pay is extra costs like air fuel.

The air force gets about 100 film scripts into their hands every year, and in one single year they participate in around 30 projects.

A liaison officer in Los Angeles is working actively to sell in the air force in Hollywood. Producers and directors are invited for demonstrations of new weapon systems.

Before the big movie "Armageddon" intensive negotiations were held between the air force, who wanted Bruce Willis to mould a retired air force technician, and the director Jerry Bruckheimer, who wanted him to be a former marine. As a compromise a new character was created, who was from the air force.

Sometimes the military doesn't offer their participation if they don't like the script. In "Broken Arrow" a nuclear weapon is stolen. The military saw this as intolerable, and Pentagon said no to give "full assistance" to the film team. Nevertheless the air force gave a limited help with information about uniforms etc.

The reason the producers agree to give the military such a big influence over the movies is that real military hardware is very valuable for the filmmakers. Nothing is better than a real fighter aircraft or a real hangar. The producers save lots of money if Pentagon lends them important properties for free. The alternative would be to rent expensive helicopters and other vehicles and re-paint them.

Before the big movie "Air Force one" the US air force lent six F-158 planes almost for free.

Israel as a Military Soundstage

The alternative would have been to move the production to Israel, where the [Israeli-U.S. supported] military lends such air planes for around $ 25,000 an hour.

Karl Rove and the Pentawood Brass Meetings

And, Variety Magazine after September 11 reported that German heritage Karl Rove, the latter day Goebbels himself, met with top "Pentawood brass" [Hollywood CEOs] in the movie industry for scheduling a series of pro-military films after 9-11, which dutifully came out by December 2001 and onward.

The Third Reich was very much a film driven political and mass entertainment and indoctrination movement as well.

The Nazis were interested in two forms of mind control: individual mind control as well as mass psychological mind control.

For the latter, Goebbels said himself that entertainment is the best form of propaganda because the viewer's guard is down.

In late 1945, even as the Soviets and the Americans were closing in on Berlin's environs where he was filming, Goebbels was still making a film, requisitioning and taking equipment directly from the "real world" defense of Berlin, to make an exorbitant even megalomaniac German historical docudrama about a triumphant Reich of the distant past—fending off the barbarians.


In other words it's not only selling one particular nations' militarism through arrested development and confusing the world of play and reality. It's selling a particular Christian Zionist U.S-Israeli alliance and even world war through that consumer-political infantalization and confusion of both worlds.

That gets into another sick theme of this blog occassionally: MKULTRA individual mind control through splitting personalities by confusing them what is real and what is fantasy.

You can notice the same characteristics of DID (dissociated identity disorder) in the admixing of fantasy with reality in many consumer-military projects. This mental confusion of what is fantasy and what is real (combined with a lot of traumatic pain) is key to the MKULTRA project according to those who escaped it and lived to tell about it.

Think of this video gaming, toy selling, stuffed teddy bear militarism as an MKULTRA project for mass society?

A general U.S. theme is the political dominance of the U.S. military encourages infantalism. The school system is the same way mostly. Learn the shared fictions, the shared fictive enemies (even if they are on the CIA payroll all the time). Call that America, etc.

Examples are Jeff's "Pentagon and Marvel Comics" alliance.

George Bush the Elder posing with Daffy Duck.

Disney and the Pentagon generals working together from WWII on Mickey Mouse Gas Masks.

Fiction becomes American reality through consumerism.

Eisenhower was wrong in his exit speech from the Presidency in the late 1950s.

It's not only the 'military industrial complex' you should worry about. For 60 years, it has been a 'military-industrial-entertainment-complex.' That mil-entertainment short clip above gets into that. I would like to see more of that film.

Since the U.S. culture is so corporatized, militarized, and Baudrillarized that there is almost no culture except the shared virtual simulacrum of endless copies repeated everywhere.

And that visual simulacrum has been a burned-over district for so many generations upon generations who think that culture is a form of short term advertising.

"The burned-over district was a name coined by historian Whitney Cross in a 1850 book to describe an area in central and western New York during the Second Great Awakening. The name was given because the area was so heavily evangelized during the revivalism of antebellum America so as to have no fuel (unconverted population) left to burn (convert). When religion is related to reform movements of the period, such as abolition, women's rights, and utopian social experiments, the region expands to include areas of central New York that were important to the aforementioned reform movements."

That cultural heat death is nearing the closed circle where advertising and short term consumerism corporate-military implanted identities will be the only commonality that most Americans experience as their culture.

Reminds me of the FASCIST STATES OF DISNEYLAND post, American fascism as the perfection of fascist techniques:

"There are a lot of similarities between America and Germany, though the difference is actually a compliment to fascists out there: where Germany failed in the 1930s, America has succeeded. The compliment to fascists out there would be that America seems to have perfected State control of society and ideology far more than Germany was ever able to attempt or achieve, quite possibly because American fascist ideology has made good on Orwell's fear of the State dominating through complete control of the identity of individuals--from cradle to grave.

Let's call it State Individualism, which is different from actual individualism because it is a individualism that only serves the American corporate state. American fascism has entirely done away with any social ideologies--which Germany, Italy, Japan or other fascist movements in Eastern Europe or Scandinavia had. The American fascist ideology of is one of (corporate state managed of course) State Individualism.

Here are some similarities between Germany's fascism and America's fascism that only shows that America's version is a more perfected variety of hyper-fascism. It takes the principles of State control and divide and conquer of the citizens to a hyper-level: down to the individual level. It takes the principle of State control and divide and conquer into party politics as well, as you will see what I mean.

1. Like Germany, a centralized media exists. However, unlike Germany, American fascism of State Individualism has allowed a very different kind of fascism than before: a special American hyper-fascism that is a combination of the historical corporate state fascism and typical police state repression, corporate interlocks, jingoism, and imperialism--combined with a public personae that is entirely disconnected from society instead of about it: the ideology sails over society and numbs it instead of asks for its participation. It sells escapism through particular state mandated 'individualisms' instead of actual individualism, it sells disney-esque cant, slogans, and jingles, each lasting 30 seconds for 24 hours a day, and endless kaleidoscope of blurring emptiness. The ideology of State Individualism is that the individual is a tabula rasa to be programmed with whatever State elites want, whatever emotions, whatever ideas, and this programming can be achieved year after year precisely because no one is given any manner to approach the issue of their manipulation historically. Updates, fads, planned obsolescence, deprivation, and consumption are the techniques of State Individualism. What are illegal are localism, pro-active political action, and democratic challenges.

2. While Germany attempted corporate state fascism with a social ideology, a 'volk' concept, a unity concept--American fascism's ideology of State Individualism, if anything is an ideology of intentional chaos and anomyization. It is easier for the American corporate state to rule over this chaos than any organized social force that it might seed though it may later get out of its control. Hitler built an ideological force based on social ideologies. America has learned to do without it, as long as the individuated pieces of the chaos of images get filtered through the same corporate state screening--thus, the process of State programming becomes seamless. ..."

etc., etc.

Thus powers that be (or that wish to be) invent culture (and sell it back to you and make a profit!) as the latest advertising round funds the next advertising round--or war support propaganda--as the case may be.

Hopsicker got into this 'military, consumer, investment cycle' in one of his long posts:

Title: The 'Genesis' of the Adnan Khashoggi Wing of the 9-11 Truth Movement (infiltration)
Author: hopsicker with commentary
Date: 2006.10.29 08:11
Description: This is an interesting assortment how many of the false 9-11 truthers like Ruppert (and surprisingly, Barry Zwicker gets later caught up in John Gray money ("Men are from Mars" book ), and John Gray money and his book's popularity came from international drug lord Kashoggi's operations). Thus below is a summary of the twisted tale of the "Genesis" of the infiltrated side of the 9-11 Truth Movement, the Genesis named operations in a convoluted money trail of Adnan Kashoggi. Kashoggi's organizations have simultaneously taken to hawking "anything that needed to be hawked" for psyop purposes from John Gray's "Men are From Mars" books (with its Kashoggi connections), to perhaps (...Hopsicker leaves this open, though it would make intuitive sense for the 'genesis' of this branch of hawking as well) various other PGI Corporation connections to Ruppert ("perhaps the largest tax fraud scam in U.S. history"), to, of all things, the Hale Bopp Comet Cult itself--keyed off by 'false reportage' of the same 'Genesis' connected network off Kashoggi. Second, there is interesting information on the SAN DIEGO and TAMPA aspects of the false flaggers--which had Kashoggi networks around them as well as traitorous FBI networks as well in San Diego, according to the FBI Investigation of itself! The main theme is the implanted artificial culture industry and its main vehicle--under Kashoggi networks? With a different 'subsidiary' for each operation, each named "Genesis" Something? Read on. "...let's begin our journey with a visit to the psy-ops murk of 'Saudi Genesis'."

So fantasy associations in our neoliberal, desocialized, global-capital-flows world are what the culturally bereft cling to for dear life as the only reality.

This is whether they be sales tools like "American and democracy" or animated fantasies that support the troops and perpetual warfare, which beckon the question, why don't you join the fantasy as well?

Mass society in the USA becoming "MKULTRA consumerism?" It perhaps started out in the WWII Mockingbird media that never stopped its military control of the news in the USA as it only expanded after WWII to dominate the television stations and then the newspapers, then became a mass movement of social control the 1960s actually according to this; and by the early 21st century it's very seamless with culture now being planned at a business (or military) meeting instead of merely sales (or wars).

When selling animated fantasies are seen as the real strategy for the Pentagon, that is reflective of a sad reality. That reality is that U.S. culture is already so based on virtual images instead of tangible culture and knowing people next door. Dave McGowan had a poll at his website Center for an Informed America (that I can't find a link to right now) that showed the extend of how many people in the USA don't even have one friend to talk to anymore. Their culture is the tube and their major connection to others outside of work. It leads to things like this:

Functionally Insane Americans
By David McGowan

There have been many attempts made, by both the legal and mental health communities, to define "insanity." But it seems to me that that term can be most succinctly defined as: "a disconnection from reality." And the severity of any individual's insanity is a function of the degree of that person's disconnection from reality.

That definition, of course, is entirely dependent on how "reality" is defined. From the point of view of the state, "reality" is whatever the shapers of public opinion say it is. Anyone who disagrees with the voices of authority is, therefore, insane.

From that perspective, people such as, for instance, yours truly, are completely bonkers.

But if we base our definition on a relatively objective reality, then most of the people that I know are, without question, insane. Most of my relatives are insane. Most of my friends are insane. Most of the people that I work with are insane. Damn near everyone in the country is at least mildly insane. A very large majority are moderately to severely insane. And according to polls, at least a third are stark raving mad.

These people hold beliefs that are clearly delusional--that have absolutely no connection to reality. And they persist in holding these beliefs even when not a shred of evidence can be produced to support them. And no, I'm not talking about people who believe in UFOs, reincarnation, and the Loch Ness Monster. And I'm also not talking about people who believe in some supreme spiritual entity.

I'm talking about people who believe that 'weapons of mass destruction' have been uncovered in Iraq . . . who believe that 'weapons of mass destruction' were used against our troops over there . . . who even believe that 'weapons of mass destruction' is something other than a arbitrary term cooked up recently by Uncle Sam to describe weapons systems possessed by our 'enemies,' regardless of the actual destructive capability of those systems.

The functionally insane also believe that Iraqis were among the hijackers who allegedly commandeered the planes on September 11, 2001.

It is difficult to fathom, but these people are so crazed that they have actually taken the government's already fanciful conspiracy theory, which is itself totally disconnected from reality, and they have made it even more ludicrous by adding some Iraqis to the mix. I'm betting that a few years down the road these same people will also believe that there were a couple of Liberians on one of the planes, as well as an Iranian guy, a couple of North Koreans, a Syrian, and perhaps a Cuban or two. Maybe even a French couple.

It's the damnedest thing, but in addition to holding these bizarre beliefs, these people can't even seem to see the walls going up.

The basis of the military and U.S. culture are in deep trouble...

People laugh at the cloisered worlds of the last Chinese emperor (in that film The Last Emperor) where the revolutionaries run through the Forbidden City to expect resistance, fear, and awe from an all powerful Emperor.

However, he is seen only surprised at their presence intruding from the real world while he is busy playing tennis on a sunny day in the palace even though starvation and revolution was brewing outside and even within his palace compound and he didn't see it.

Is this thin eggshell of American culture (living on its deflating dollar, dream images, xBoxes, military-and-teddy bear sales driven service economy any less cloistered than the Last Emperor?

"In the movie adaptation of Iron Man to be released next Spring, his origin has been updated to include a kidnapping by jihadists. Two US Air Force F-22 Raptors and a Global Hawk make supporting appearances, which "shows they really went out of their way for us"; or so director John Favreau tells it on this Youtube posting of the Air Force News Agency. Eventually, the Nick Fury-wannabes of this universe saw the upside in recruiting Lee's original, and making the comic universe another front in the war on adolescent imagination. As though admitted an arrested development to their own fighting force, in 2005 the Department of Defense partnered with Marvel to launch a custom imprint for troops deployed to the Middle East. The event at the Pentagon "coincided with 'Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,' so plenty of youngsters were on hand to get the first copies of the special comics": "That's really cool. They said that they're trying to help all the people [in the military]," said 11-year-old Kaitlin Lee, who was visiting the Pentagon with her younger brother and sister and their soldier dad. Kaitlin explained that it's good for the superheroes to show support for the troops because some kids want to be like their favorite superheroes.... Marvel's privileged relationship with the Pentagon, as tacit incubator and explicit feedlot for its slaughterhouse, makes its latest phenomenal success of particular grim interest."

The Pentagon is actively sculpting the consumer culture to be as divorced from reality as they are. Been working on it for over 60 years.

Been lurking for years, but had to say great Dawkins link tazmic... complete with an apropos quote:

"...a philosopher who is caught equating the erectile organ to the square root of minus one has, for my money, blown his credentials when it comes to things that I don't know anything about."

Gee, does that sound like anyone here? Please do be cautious in communicating compound esoteric concepts, so as not to come off sounding as inaccessible and/or poseur-ish as Jacques Lacan. Damn it gets tiresome.

Much love and healing vibes to IC. Thanks for all the links, man.

i am back. for a little while. this was the first time i had a true close call. some of you talk about praying/preying and i did both while i was out and about.

i read thru all of these posts and comments:

- 300 is a great movie. my favorite actually.

- if i read G3 right then sex is unnatural? i dont understand

- chemtrails - i watched the video you posted about the high content of barium. and knowing the things i do, i would say yes it is possible that the barium was introduced into the system by some sort of spray, however, if the results are high blood pressure especially if reversible then what is the big deal? now before you jump down my throat as you always do, i think you should acknowledge that what i just expressed is in fact the same thought process that someone who is defending america's soil would argue as well. everything is a balance and perhaps this is an example of decisions made to better our country. i dont know the details of this project - if it is at all in existence - but i do not believe that there is harm being done through spraying barium over our heads.

- iron man - i think it is great to see that they allowed filming of a real life F-22. this is a great machine. BUT LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT THIS MACHINE. while the F-22 is the best fighter in the air, it performs like a WW1 Biplane in comparison to the soon to be released F-35. In other words the best we have is about to be eclipsed by something even better.

- iron man - i also think that it is great to show kids who the enemy is and why. so by showing super heroes supporting freedom and liberty and fighting a faceless masked enemy is actually a good thing. dont complain!

- G3 regarding the mcdonalds comment... you are a numbnuts. there is no meat in fast food - it is seaweed everyone knows that! so much for your knowledge of "iron" in "food".

- i dont like vegetarians. i think they are not trustworthy. much like fat people.

Alcoa Chapeau, thanks for the Dawkins link reminder, (and tasmic too).

I do not care for Dawkins, but still good for him for showing origins and weakness of post-modern thinking.

Still maybe random word generators can do as well as current intellectuals, including physicists, given the separation between current conceptual structures and reality. That is perhaps only an outlier’s opinion and I did like this sentence;

“In a sense, the premise of the subtextual paradigm of context states that reality comes from the collective unconscious.”

I would say that reality does not ‘come from’ the collective unconscious, that would be relativism, but we may say that the expression of reality that we experience reflects our collective unconscious.

Alcoa, good call on sending love and props out to silverfox, starroute and IC. Did you happen to catch Proteus? He only posted two or three times. He was a person that would have raised the level of exchange here, -oh well.

"In the land of the dissociated, the one with the most psychoses is king."

Centuries of psychical conditioning have impressed on us the need to submit to authority. When we were infants perhaps this was a true need. Now however it is time for us to grow up, despite the efforts of abusive 'parents' whose only project seems to be an attempt to transfer their psychoses on to the children. Sometimes culture seems like nothing more than institutionalized arrested development.

When I say 'parents' I mean sociopolitical constructs, ideology, religion and science.

Man, talk about relative truth... if a big round disk floats down to the ground in front of you and some little weird-looking critters come out and telepathically explain to you that you need to come with them before the planet blows up, WHY WOULD YOU BELIEVE THEM?

For that matter, why wouldn't you?

Mark - those are excellent and informative posts - thanks. The fact that the entertainment media has been used for decades as a means for indoctrination is evident. Like many other kids of my generation, I used to watch a lot of the TV westerns that were our main fare - Bonanza, Gunsmoke, Sugarfoot, Bronco, Tombstone Territory - even, when I was younger, the Range Rider, which I always thought was ace. The Lone Ranger was the one I couldn't get into, even then he looked to me like a horsebound Liberace. (Incidentally, he was rumoured to have shot Tonto the day he found out what 'Kemo Sabay' really meant.)

These shows, and all the detective shows, had one element in common - the intrusive 'bad' guy, whose behaiour was never explained, other than that he was the 'bad' guy - he killed, stole, shouted at women, scared kids and brutalised weak-hearted male citizens, etc - and the violent and mostly fatal by means of which he was dispatched by the hero. The message was clear - in order to become a man, you had to be willing and able to kill large numbers of other men, or at least beat the shit out of them.

This has been reinforced by a slew of increasingly violent movies - all of the kids presently occupying Iraq and Afghanistan (and killing and dying in large numbers) grew up in a world defined by Fatal Weapon 1, 2, 3 and 4, the Die Hards, the Arnold movies, to mention but these.

Whoopie Goldberg sits beaming in a shiny happy car under the shiny happy California sky, shaded by shiny happy California palm trees - in her hand, the ubiquitous shiny happy Colt .45 with which she's prepared to blow anyone's brains up the fucking wall. It's hard to find a movie poster without a weapon of mass destruction being palmed by the poster boy or girl.

We are indoctrinated to believe that hardcore violence is the only solution to our problems in the same way that European schoolchildren used to be taught as part of the natural curriculum that Negros and dark-skinned people in general were an inferior sub-species. This year it's "Islamists". Used to be "Jews".

The power behind all this is the continued push to acquire more and more of the world's ressources for an increasingly small percentage of the world's population - at whatever the cost. There are no rules, and human life to those involved is worth less than spit on a shithouse floor. Just like in the movies.

Indoctrination is the means to rope us all into the game.

I remember seeing the poster for Spielberg's 'Saving Privaye Ryan' and feeling that there was something nasty brewing. That was 1999 - as was to be expected, this movie was followed by a slew of Spielberg copycat movies. In the few months before the invasion of Iraq, there were a number of violent hero movies, including Mel Gibsonn in 'We Were Soldiers' and the Bruce Willis movie in which he saved a virginal Monica Bellucci from the evil dark-skinned guys.

The superhero movies have been getting increasingly shitty, though always lauded by the media - DareDevil was one of the most stupid films I've ever (partly) seen, and I thought at the time thay couldn't get much worse than that. They did, though, right away, and still are - I actually watched 'Smokin' Aces' because someone told me it was 'really cool'. It was about innumerable murderers killing lots of people. It was shown as quite normal, and never even mentioned, that most of the people shown in the movie considered killing for financial gain as just a job, like slinging burgers.

This is what we all grew up in, this is what we all evolve in - and it's the mindset that we must escape from. There are other possibilities to human beings than murder and revenge. As soon as we perceive this, we are provided with a choice which we did not have before. That's when we are obliged to start making serious efforts to change ourselves first. Sharing on sites like this is part of the process, in my opinion, though of course there's absolutely no guarantee that the people we read are sincere or even motivated by the same desire as ourselves.

I'm glad to see David back. I'm glad to read some of the newer posters, though some of their stuff is still arcane to me. And I want to say, at the risk of pissing off more than a few people, that War Negger is definitely a whole lot smarter than he gets credit for. Hippies were as pissed off with their parents and their shit storm as he is with hippies - we don't express it the same. The world is a lot more in your face nasty than it used to be, though it's the same game that's being played. I think that's an indication that things are coming to a head. I hope my kids' generation does more than my generation did - but without accepting a spiritual dimension to our being, there's no chance.

"I wanted to be a hero too, and so I wished I'd been born an American."

I doubt that being an American would have helped much, superhero-wise (but, of course, Jeff already knows that...). I was born an American, but I grew up wanting to be a spy, so I wished I'd been born British. Then, around the age of twelve, I realized that my ludicrous James Bond pretensions had more to do with my father's television viewing habits, rather than any real desire of my own. I also realized, later, just how much it had cost the old man, trying to live up to the James Bond version of masculinity, in even the smallest of ways.

A few relevant quotes from Crash Gordon and the Mysteries of Kingsburg, beginning with a scene in which Gordon, aged twelve, is wandering around in his father's failing liquor store:

With no real experience of drinking alcoholic beverages, Gordon finds himself drawn to certain brands for purely aesthetic reasons. He likes the squat green roundness of the Tanqueray gin bottles and the somehow quintessentially Russian design of the Stolichnaya vodka labels. He imagines himself having his own fully stocked bar when he’s older, living in a modern bachelor pad, where he debonairly mixes drinks for nubile airline stewardesses and Communist nymphomaniacs like a young James Bond. Gordon makes a mental note to himself to learn how to drive a rocket-launching Aston-Martin. And an airplane and a speedboat while he’s at it, for quick getaways. His father could help him out there….

It occurs to Gordon that perhaps James Bond is more his father’s ideal of masculinity, rather than his own. Maybe he’s identifying with Mal a little too strongly these days because of all that Prednisone he’s been taking. The role of the suave spy who speeds around in sleek vehicles saving the world while having sex all the time fits Mal much better than it does Gordon, whose heroes have tended to be grumpy old wizards like Hermann Hesse and Carl Jung. However, there was once a time when he was younger--around five or six--when Gordon’s daydreams cast him in a more heroic light.

Gordon recalls how he used to entertain fantasies of himself as an athletic teen hippie boy named Starhawk. Starhawk wore round-toed red leather boots and a pair of red underpants on the outside of his perfectly faded denim jeans. He also wore a magic denim jacket (embroidered with flowers and peace symbols) that possessed powers of invisibility, and he had a special pair of red, titanium-mesh gloves with which he could catch speeding bullets. His reflexes were so fast, in fact, that he once caught 63 bullets fired at him from the Tommy gun of the Schnozz Marauder--a villain based on Gordon’s wholly inexplicable childhood fear of the big-nosed vaudeville entertainer, Jimmy Durante. Starhawk’s confrontations with the Schnozz Marauder were often witnessed by a gorgeous, high-strung hippie girl with wavy blonde hair and a buxom body encased in sky blue tights--a girl whom Gordon, in his fantasies, referred to as Sis. To Gordon’s way of thinking at the time (the early 1970’s), calling someone Sis was the height of cool, and it didn’t necessarily mean they were related. Thus, after Starhawk defeated the Schnozz Marauder by grabbing the empty Tommy gun and bending it into a pretzel with his fists, he turned to the near-swooning hippie girl and said in his cool guy voice: “C’mon, Sis, let’s get out of here.” A snow-white unicorn with a silky mane suddenly appeared at Starhawk’s side and he gallantly helped Sis onto its bare back. Then they both galloped away toward more virtuous hippie adventures with Sis’s arms tightly encircling Starhawk’s chest and her head resting upon his shoulder, where she could nuzzle his ear and whisper, “Wow, Starhawk, that was, like, so cool! I can’t believe how strong and groovy you are! I dig you so much!”

Thinking about that particular fantasy now, Gordon would be inclined to identify Sis as his anima and the Schnozz Marauder as his yet-to-be-integrated shadow--but still, the whole thing strikes him as embarrassing in the extreme. Maybe James Bond isn’t such a bad role model, after all….

• • •

Then again, maybe James Bond is a bad role model. As Sounder said: "The irony of ‘superheroes’ promoting the screwing up of the world even as they find salvation in a cartoon bubble should not be lost."

Alternatively: our moon-mad pal Gurdjieff was so fond of saying: If a man in prison has any chance of escaping, the first thing he has to do is realize he’s in prison. So long as he thinks he’s free, he’s screwed. And the Dark Brotherhood is really, really good at turning people into slaves while at the same time making them think that they’re in control of their own destinies.

Think about how advertising works. All those shiny new cars and nubile young women, the expensive Swiss watches and sparkling diamonds, the cigarettes and bottles of liquor that promise to make you look cool. They’re all glamour traps. They’re selling you an impossible dream of luxury and fame and hassle-free sex--a James Bond sort of lifestyle that no one can really live up to, except maybe Hugh Hefner. Mal bought into that dream and it kept him emotionally stunted and dissatisfied throughout his entire life, in a permanent state of pissed-off longing. It also made him work harder to buy things that he really didn’t need. A new Corvette or a liquor store extracts a price in physical, mental, and emotional toil--all of which goes to feed the Dark Brotherhood.

(Women are just as susceptible--just ask any Architectural Digest-reading mom who’s blown half her kid’s college fund on a new bathroom with English tub fixtures and handcrafted Italian tiles. Or talk to the housewife with ten different kinds of mascara and a closet full of Harlequin romance novels who’s given up on making love to her husband because he doesn’t live up to her fantasies--nevermind that with her stretchmarks and stomach flab, she’s nobody’s ideal fantasy material, either.)

Movies and television are the same as advertising, only worse. Your brain shuts down after watching about half-an-hour of a movie or television show; it goes into a hypnoidal twilight state and stops distinguishing between Self and Other. You start to live what’s on the screen--which puts you in the ideal state to feed the Dark Brotherhood.

Think about all the emotional turmoil you put yourself through while watching a movie: You’re at once the cop and the serial killer, the doctor with three wives and the chipper farm girl with leukemia. You gladly participate in car crashes, cocaine binges, machine gun shoot-outs, battlefield skirmishes, doomed love affairs, skyscraper fires, oceanliner disasters, contagion by monkey virus, race riots, blood feuds, witch trials, voodoo rites, emasculation by Egyptian scarabs, and bloody, gushing stomach eruptions triggered by fanged, penis-shaped little space-aliens. You think you’re having a great time as all that emotional crap boils through you. But now imagine a giant astral vacuum-funnel above every movie theater sucking up all that negativity, making the Dark Brotherhood grow stronger. They’ve got you resonating on the lower levels of the
Bardo--just where they want you--and you’ve paid the price of a movie ticket to do it.

You’ve colluded in your own doom, as Philip K. Dick would have put it. How fucked up is that?

Thanks, Surrender, for that update from Fulford. I read his other Rense interview months ago with great interest--glad there seems to be some major global divisions still left that can be geopolitical levers against the NWO crew....if any of this is true.

The story is basically, if we don't all die off, they won.

If we start to die off, the intimation is that the tiny teeny weeny Illuminati families are truly insane and would take the whole world down with them rather than have a world without their attempted control and first person testimony that they want a global chipped population, a global cashless society they could 'turn off' on anyone they disliked, which would be a form of consumer panopticon slave society ruled easily by a very small number of people without any effective way of organizing resistance.

Pshaw, some might say to such megalomania. Well, meet Mr. Megolomania analyzed in the below link--then come back and think whether it is so far fetched.

The late friend of Nicholas Rockefeller, Hollywood director Aaron Russo, talked about all of this before Russo 'quickly died of cancer' after his exposure film of the Federal Reserve (film: _America: From Freedom to Fascism).

That film surely didn't make many people very happy about the financial clientelism of control in the USA to a completely unConstitutional institution never legally authorized to have its power.

Looking into what the late Aaron Russo said about Nicholas Rockefeller, I thought 'hey, a Rockefeller is a big fish. He's bound to leave easily found waves financially when he swims somewhere.' So I did some analysis of Nicholas to see what his real world connections and interests are that might verify or falsify Russo's claim that Nicholas Rockefeller was a '9-11 insider'--11 months in advance--as well as someone who told Russo that the goal was a global cashless panopticon society in so many words where everyone is chipped, and where only a small number of hand picked elites can pass through all security without any blocks (no matter their crimes).

I'm still waiting for some falsification....


1. Nicholas Rockefeller is personally in control of the world's three largest 'people search' database corporations that are massively and sometimes illegally being handed major govenment digitization of records contracts (around the world) and then these records are put illegally into the private domain of his corporations databases. (One of his front operators is an ex-car thief, Nicholas "Nick" Matzorkis. Matzorkis was later the man who 'hired and ran' most of the MKULTRA'ed Hale Bopp Comet Cult people. No joke...:

Before we get into GlobalAgora, remember this is the same person Nick Matzorkis:

"After finding the bodies of 39 members of the Heaven's Gate cult on a balmy afternoon in Southern California, arrayed in neat rows and wearing brand new Nikes, Nick Matzorkis became instantly famous.


"In contrast, Beverly Hills computer businessman Nick Matzorkis [who "discovered" the cult's bodies], who employed about a dozen cult members to design World Wide Web sites, had the impression that they were not being coerced. His employee Richard Ford, or "Rio," is the former cultist who discovered the bodies," read a [dissembling] wire service account. "The one thing that's been made very clear to me in conversations with [his employee cult member] Rio is that anyone was free to leave at any time," Matzorkis said. [So Matzorkis is employing these "robotic" Hale Bopp cultists in his web businesses.]


Cultists deaths forgotten, Matzorkis went on to help raise $ 54 million in an Internet initial public stock offering for a heavily-advertised online venture called U.S. Two years ago he founded a company in China with a partner with a slightly-more illustrious pedigree, Nicholas Rockefeller.--[the very person who is friends with Aaron Russo, who told Aaron 11 months before 9-11 some "event" would happen that would allow the Caspian oil pipeline and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.]

The press release announcing their company said the principals were "Nicholas Matzorkis, who in 1994 founded US SEARCH, the number one people locator service in the world, and Nicholas Rockefeller Esq., a leading venture capital counselor.

And the other Matzorkis-Rockefeller global surveillance corporation, GlobalAgora, "is believed to be the first U.S. company to launch first in the People's Republic" Why launch a consumer wireless network in a one party police state? Because a bastion of a police state without any consumer rights or history of seeming rights to privacy (the Chinese supposedly don't even have a word for "personal space") seems to be serving the Rockefellers as culture for an experimental society model without pesky human rights issues, a state supremacy model that the U.S. "opt out only" model he desperately wants to emulate and export elsewhere without all those "pesky rights" people have around the world. "

Food for thought there Jeff to follow that guy...though I did some legwork about him below at the link already.

2. Nicholas is indeed, simultaneously, working on a 'cashless society' op. He started it several months before 9-11, right on schedule.

3. Nicholas has approached the U.N. with a global cashless society infrastructure idea... (I'm sure the U.N. will listen to him, after all his relative John Rockefeller in the previous generation handed the check to the U.N. organization to purchase the land in New York City for their U.N. building and its real estate...)

Title: 9-11 Insider Nicholas Rockefeller's Proprietary Cashless Society Technology and Databases
Author: J'accuse
Date: 2006.11.04 01:14
Description: The Very Visible Nicholas Rockefeller's Invisible Panopticon: His United Nations Aired Ideas for a Private Proprietary Database and Technology for a Global Wireless Cashless Consumer Panopticon, all under Nicholas Rockefeller, a 9-11 Insider. 9-11 "security" issues only set up wider "state driven appeal" for the his proprietary technology platform for a cashless society. 9-11 Insider Nicholas Rockefeller, predicts 9-11 justified Middle East invasions a year in advance--and only months before 9-11 sees fit as well to start up a pilot project for a cashless society. He has additionally been involved in THREE separate global people monitoring database corporations detailed below. "The cashless society will be controlled by the Rockefellers, and it will be microwave based, wireless, and controlled off the phone tower network"--if he has his way. China is his model. See what he is doing in China below, and see how there is huge synergy between his fingers and his minions' fingers in the corporations US Search, Zebasearch, and GlobalAgora--all linked to him.

Another issue with Fulford:

He said if Rockefellers start to die off, 'they' are applying the thumbscrews to the group--starting with a major eye of the pyramid.

Antoher issue that can be tangibly verified is the world capital at Jerusalem faction.

Fulford writes/speaks of:

"The radical faction, who wants to go ahead with Armageddon, are the War on Terror people. They're all a lie, basically. Another faction [is saying], "Okay, look. The plan to create a world government, with Jerusalem as its capital, is just not going to work right now. It's much easier to make the EU a central world government."

An interesting article from the 1960s in Look Magazine talks about this.

It's about plans for making Jerusalem the 'global state capital of the major religions'. Theocratic and secular at once.

Antother interesting if chilling link is that the occult capital building in Jerusalem is already there waiting for the global state to be built around it for the faction that wants it that outcome.

Look at these pictures and read the 1962 printed story:

Title: UPDATE: ISRAELI whole capital is occult Masonic shrine;1960s plan for World Supreme Court
Author: repost
Date: 2004.09.20 12:02
Description: Here is what these groups planned to do with this building based on their 1960s statements, this building with a huge Masonic pyramid in the 'holy of holies' as a substitute for God in a Jewish temple arrangement, where 33 levels from darkeness to light take you to where only retired judges have a non-public worship area near the pyramid base level....

Who else builds a Jewish temple plan and instead of the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies, puts a Masonic pyramid with an eye on top there that pokes up out of the roof to look around Jerusalem. No joke. Pictures at link above.

So the building is already there, waiting like an unplugged lamp for the flow of electrifying legitimacy.

My favorite surreal moment of his interview:

"I followed the thread and realized the Japanese government was totally corrupt. Everything we were reading about in the Japanese newspapers was a lie. I wrote two chapters of a book that was going to be so explosive, and it was in English - that I would have to either leave Japan or be killed.

I sent them to my agent. The next day I get a call from the granddaughter of the Meiji emperor. Out of the blue! She said, "You know, you should not get the Yakuza angry." Right?

And she told me that a goddess had called to intervene, and to tell me [this]. It turned out that the 'goddess' was the Japanese security police. They obviously had been looking at my email. But they said, "You don't understand what's really going on." She gave me this Dave vonKleist (ph) video, In Plane Site. "

I love it. Surreal. Japanese royalty passing American journalists 9-11 videos. We have Amaterasu on our side, folks.

Another good quote:

"Now the Japanese Freemasons, who invited me to join, said there was a planned [ar]rival of a fleet of UFOs. It sounded, to me, crazy - the Rockefellers, you know, were going to secretly manufacture this fleet of UFOs to fake an Armageddon and alien landing scenario."

The black budget has a huge fleet of these presumably and they were first tested out in the Bush Senior attack on Iraq back in the early 1990s as support for the ground war against Iraq and Saddam then, according to Phil Schneider the late black projects whistleblower who said he worked on back engineered alien craft and exotic materials like that for his job.

It's good when elites have infights. It might even lead to democracy somewhere...

When the elites are united,
the people are benighted...

When the elites fight,
the people feel their might.

Well Jeff you hit home with the "iron" psychology! haha. I had something of a superhero day yesterday. Started the morning with a full session with a repeat customer then at House of Charity I could see yellow light around everyone -- more full-lotus esctasy ensued. Then another repeat customer session -- but enhanced by no visual contact. Then McDonald's sported a slew of East Indian males totally intrigued by my full-lotus antics (and my curry-garlic odor). haha. The workers at McD's yesterday were barely hiding their enthusiasm.

At work I accosted three different males and urged them to read: "Activism, Inc.: How Outsourcing Canvassing has Strangled Progressive Politics in America" by Professor Dana Fisher (Stanford U Press, 2006).

Then my female coworker and I continued our conspiratorial energy conversation with my comment that even George Bush, Sr. has "good intentions."

So when I finally goto sleep at 1 a.m. after wondering if the full-moon was three days away (since that's when meditation is 10 times stronger and last night was very strong), I wake up to having had

not just a flying dream -- but having sex while flying -- and then astral walking on the moon, in a totally absurd, clown-esque style, then some sort of encounter with G.W. Bush, and more flying, flying, flying.

The lungs are the corporeal soul in alchemy and the element of metal. The goal of Freemason alchemy is to create another physical body that is supposedly immortal.

The lungs are also the emotion of sadness -- so tantric technology, based on mass ritual sacrifice through separation of heaven (mind) and earth (body), just destroys everyone's corporeal soul while creating sadness -- the word "goat" (the original mass ritual sacrifice) comes from the Greek word for "tragedy."

And so the Freemasonic alchemist must repress emotions of love -- normally expressed through the sublimation of sex energy -- in order to maximize the lower emotions of lead (jing or electrochemical energy), mercury (chi or electromagnetic energy), and iron (yang spirit or intense golden light creating a new physical body).

Notice how the latest superhero movies are based on the concept of environmental mutations -- radiation, pollution, etc. -- making humans STRONGER, when in fact the opposite is true.

Neuromelanin is an "iron-sink" which is why nonwhites are genetically more suspectible to heavy metal poisoning, diabetes, etc.

In contrast whites lack melanin in their inner ear and it's been proven that for this reason whites have less capability for sound amplitude processing (sound ionizes to ultrasound for harmony of heaven -- mind and earth -- body, to create love paranormal healing).

As an African-American activist friend states -- it was the ice-age, causing fear (the kidney energy, not sublimating through the inner ear vagus nerve because of lack of melanin), thereby creating a dependency on iron weapons for imperialism.

Professor William H. Calvin's book "The Ascent of Mind" corroborates this Afro-Centric conspiracy.

Yeah I've just been reading U of Chicago professor Bruce Lincoln's latest essay:

How to read a religious text: Reflections on some passages of the 'Chandogya Upanisad'
History of religions [0018-2710] Lincoln yr:2006 vol:46 iss:2 pg:127 -139

Lincoln's latest book is on 9-11 and religion but I think that the "religion" of the Bush Dynasty is the cowboy-superhero cynicism. "Let's Roll!" means as long as we can make adolescent jokes patronizing true fanaticism then we can psychologically distance ourselves from the physical repercussion of our conspiratorial hypocrisy.

Lincoln captures the exact same "cynical" distancing in one of the most important Brahmin texts. The text starts out, as I did in my post, prioritizing light (heaven) created through breath (prana or electromagnetic power) with its foundation as food (electrochemical or jing).

In Freemasonic alchemy this is inverted through the introduction of money as IRON power -- currency more valuable that silver-lunar-water power.

So now heaven as light is turned into heaven as METAL (the corporeal soul) and the social order is inverted with the Brahmins turned into dogs living for food and cheap thrills via fake priestly chanting: Roll on!

Lincoln points out that this Upanishad was even the basis for a Kafka short story.

Abe -- After the Hittites invaded Egypt, around 1800 BC -- then patriarchial plow-based chariot Freemasonry spread throughout Africa.

"Iron, Gender and Power" is a recent academic analysis on Africa that I cite in my blogbook.

Another recent one on Africa is "Women of the Hoe" -- Africa up until this new Hittite introduction -- had been matrifocal with iron used in a music-based, lunar context relying on the complimentary opposites of circular , female housing.

I just googled: reptilian, alchemy, iron, hempel:

Ah yes but the word "goat" comes from the word for tragedy! The Sahara used to be a fertile, green wetland area and ecologists have determined that goat forgaging was the major cause for creating today's Sahara desert around 3,500 BCE.

Ancient Egypt originated much farther south and there used to be a large Lake Chad that connected West Africa with Egypt. Many West African cultures consider themselves descendents of the Egyptians!

Then the Bantu picked up the "rectilinear" symbolic revolution which occurred in the Levant around 10,000 BCE (according to "Origins of Agriculture and the Birth of the Gods," Cambridge U Press, 2000)

The Bantu then dominated the Koi-San once iron-based plow farming was spread through Africa even though matrifocal hoe-based horticulture is still common throughout Africa.

Despite the fact that the whole continent is decimated by war, genocide and ecological collapse.

This starts out a bit raunchy but I think gets to what I call "the rotten root" behind the ecological crisis:

OK the secret of the "kiss of the yogini" is that the clitoris is to be sucked until it's hard and sex fluids flow freely which the man drinks (to restore his ejaculation).

Also "reverse breathing" is essential to tantra. Diaphragm breathing is what enabled mammals to survive in a low-oxygen environment (after Earth catastrophes).

Normally people breathe with the emphasize on the lungs but the diaphragm should be used as a pivot point with the muscles below the diaphragm drawing the sex energy up the back.

This is also called "the upward draw" or "reverse breathing."

Gay sex for men is the highest secret of western magic in O.T.O. because there is a secret gland at the base of the sacrum which is activated through anal pentration and this fires up the kundalini.

I'm not in O.T.O. but the "g-spot" orgasm is based on the same secret for females which is why "size matters" is the secret motto of second wave feminism.

The "small universe" or "microcosmic orbit" can be practiced by anyone. It just entails sitting straight in a chair and resonating the secret 12 points along the outside of the body:

1) womb-belly 2) reproductive organs 3) base of torso 4) base of sacrum 5) base of spine (small of back) 6) kidneys 7) top of back (center of shoulders) 8) base of skull 9) top of skull 10) middle of forehead 11) throat 12) Heart-mind

Just keep cycling the energy around those points, slowly focusing on each center, starting with one, and moving your mind around each point.

It's good to resonate "Om" on the first point and then "Mua" (backwards om) on the second point and then back to "Om"

Also you should sit on the edge of the chair so that there's acupressure on the base of the torso to activate that secret gland that is at the base of the sacrum.

Finally as you keep practicing the other glands get really hot. You feel the kidneys get really hot and then the thyroid gets really hot and eventually you feel the pituitary gland get really hot.

In the end you can "flex you cerebral cortex" so that you feel magnetic bliss in the pineal gland and the whole body will be suffuse with electromagnetic fields and totally limber like a baby.

In fact the top of the head will become soft (just like a baby) so that the spirit easily leaves the skull and you will not be hungry nor thirsty. This is called "ba gua" state in Taoist yoga.

The same "small universe" practice is secret to India as detailed in Mircea Eliade's book on yoga.

You will be able to "breathe" through the palms of the hands and the center points on the base of the feet -- there will be electromagnetic resonance through those points. This is called whole-body breathing.

So once the 12 points around the outside of the body are open (based on the 12 points of the chromatic music scale) then the 7 to 9 points in the center of the body open up (again the 7 to 9 notes of the diatonic music scale).

Then you can sit in full-lotus pyramid power based on the Tetrad as 1:2:3:4 (a pyramid equilateral triangle which as eternal growth the number 9 -- or 2:3:4 as Aum-Amen-Om -- this is why the capstone of the pyramid on the dollar bill is not down on the pyramid). The tetrad is based on the 1-4-5 music intervals found in all human cultures.

Nine is the sacred number of eternal growth in China.

So the 1:2:3:4 then turns into 4:5 as 5:4 -- the cube root of two -- creating a three dimensional pyramid power vortex.

The empty awareness is the space between our I-thoughts.

Logically all our thoughts are based on the I-thought -- no belief is necessary.

From where does the I-thought arise? Just repeat I-I-I-I over again, not as a mantra, but as a logical experiment in philosophy.

By seeking the source of the I-thought an asymmetrical resonance of the Golden Ratio (one as a continuous fraction for the slowest converging nonlinear fractal) is created (which governs black holes and all growth of Nature).

The golden ratio was the key to the Gothic Freemason cathedrals of Europe.

The I-thought is attracted through suction back into the center of the brain so that finally the cerebellum is activated as the foundation for all thought in the brain (so the pineal gland resonates with the moon-sun-earth vortex).

Suction is just pressure which is quantum chaos sound (phonons). Pressure as quantum chaos sound drives the evolution of galaxies and quasars and supernovas. Pressure as quantum chaos sound IS anti-gravity.

The space between the I-thoughts is the empty-awareness beyond spacetime.

This I-thought (mind yoga) increases the frequency but the small universe increases the amplitude so that alchemical transformation occurs through the asymmetrical sine-wave.

When language was closed off into left-brain axioms based on "I Am" (1:2:3:4 to square the circle) then left-brain asymmetry was created that went against the Harmony arising from the empty-awareness.

Right-brain resonance connects the Tree of Knowledge (the mind) with the Tree of Life (the womb-belly) through the Serpent (the kundalini) and God is the Heart-Mind as the foundation for each life.

God (through the patriarchal priest-hood) separated the tree of life from the tree of knowledge so that humans would be unaware of the secret power of sex.

The priest-hood by focusing on the source of the I-thought eventually resonate their consciousness all the way back to it's source in the Heart-Mind and the heart literally stops for over 15 minutes.

This is called "cutting the knot" for "eternal liberation" detailed in the book "Talks with Ramana Maharshi" -- a teacher of the ancient Brahmin priest-hood.

In Egypt the promoter of monotheism -- Ankenhaton and his queen Nerfititi -- the king stated outright (in a recent academic book it's documented):

"I have never known my non-existence."

This is the same as the "all seeing eye" of the UnDead Brahmin teaches.

So after the heart-mind was transcended to create the UnDead Priesthood there was a reversal of the Harmony of Heaven and Earth and left-brain logic separated the Tree of Knowledge from the Tree of Life using right-hand iron-based technology.

Eve -- instead of being the secret source of eternal sex power became Eve (as the corner of a square) to be controlled for materialistic power. Once the UnDead Awareness is achieved by "cutting the knot" then the priest is beyond all good and evil.

In Africa this became the Freemasonic BLACKSMITH caste which can shapeshift into crocodiles (Set -- the "evil" god of Egypt) which became the "power Set Axiom" (the official name for the square root of two, the first math equation to square the circle used to find the center of the chariot wheels).

The book "Iron, Gender and Power" is a recent academic text on Africa also see "In the Eyes of the Night: Witchcraft among the senegalese" -- another academic ivy-league anthropologist documenting shape-shifting reptilian blacksmiths as the most important magic.

The iron-based technology of patriarchal pastoralism and iron-based rectilinear plowing is the most ancient form of oppression -- when the Bantu-Koi cultures then took over the Mbuti-Baka-!Kung-San cultures of matrifocal hunter-gatherers.

In Sumeria the original Garden of Eden myth has the Snake as goodness with Eve in charge.

The letter "A" is actually the upside bulls-head from Sumerian ideograms with Omega as also a bulls-head. The bull being used for the first rectilinear iron-plow farming. See the recent academic book "Women of the Hoe" for documentation of the ancient matrifocal horticulture (without the rectilinear iron-based plowing).

God comes from the Indo-European word "Gott" meaning Bull for farming fertility rites of the ancient Solar Dynasty kings. Even scholar Karen Armstrong's book "The History of God" does not give the etymology of the word -- that's how brainwashed everyone is!!

Those kings, as detailed in professor David Gordon White's new sacred sex book "Kiss of the Yogini" ruled Western Asia through

tantric sex with a shamanic goddess (using the techniques I detailed above).

Have a nice day people.

I just biked 4 hours straight averaging 10 mph on an old 3 speed. haha.

OK so the book Taoist Yoga really emphasizes that mind yoga by itself doesn't consciously sublimate the sex energy and the lower emotions of the organs. So the whole "white male guru" scene of Ken Wilber, Andrew Cohen, etc. (zen), is part of the Western globalcide technology agenda (as are these machines).

I rely on the full-lotus to recharge -- because the harmonics of the body are automatically sublimated and harmonized.

The Brahmin priests traditionally had to do a 3 day cleansing ritual after any contact with females. So mind yoga works -- IF there is a repressive environment for females.

Greek society, the foundation of Western science, was the same.

In contrast, the Bushmen of Africa, focused on healing women, using the yang bliss-light, to see blockages in the bodies of women, to suck in the lower emotions of electrochemical light, to harmonize them and then to shoot them into the spirits of the dead for them to feed off of.

Sometimes the Bushmen would go into astral travel trance for long distance healing. The full-lotus also enables this but the focus then became on using the harmonics for priestly control.

The female formless awareness is pure consciousness and therefore beyond right and wrong, sick and health.

Once a person has transcended their own body by eternal liberation -- killing and then restarting the heart -- then any harm to the body-mind is immediately emptied out back to the female formless awareness.

Since this was done with left-brain logic, through inference, then the same left-brain logic continued to be used, only now through "proof by contradiction" called "neti, neti" or neither this, nor that -- it's what the buddhists use as well.

This enabled stricter control of geometry -- starting with the harmonic ratios for complimentary opposites -- but now "contained" through "I Am that I Am" logic.

"I Am" refers to the ratios 1:2:3:4 of yin and yang as 3:4 and 2:3.

By around 1200 BCE iron had become more valuable than silver which had been used for lunar-female ritual sacrifice.

So iron was more valuable as currency (for the ritual priests) because they were protected by the iron weapons.

"Once a Marvel reader came to political consciousness, it didn't take a decoder ring to know that Lee's own leaned grievously to the right; far enough to make a costumed hero of a military industrialist, and to make his costume iron, as though his enfleshment was a weakness to be overcome"

Oh, you have to be kidding. Maybe Lee should have made him "Wax-Paper Man."
He could have been a pacifist liberal home-less advocate by day, but by night he dons his crust of wax-paper, moving amongst the down trodden & hungry while jetting wax-paper wrapped sandwiches from the special compartment in his back-side.
At the first sign of any "bad vibes" he could drop into full lotus while spewing orgasmic rays from his eyes.
While I could see that this would be more palatable from a politically correct liberal perspective, I doubt that 'ol Stan would have sold many copies.

Violence and drama sell.

If you doubt it, change the focus of your blog to how utterly happy you are as a dad and husband & see if you score hundreds of comments every post.

Or, better yet, abandon your conspiracy book & churn out a nice bright shiny fictional story where everyone gets along, everyone is happy & nothing bad ever happens.
In my estimation that would be an astute move only if you loathe eating.

While I don't doubt that comics were and are used as propaganda,(Hell, the CIA even used one in Nicaragua. As Alan Moore describes it, "Capt. Contra says, Block a toilet for Democracy.") Marvel isn't exactly one of the more egregious offenders.
Just read some of the 1940's National Comics. Superman & Batman alone must have beat the shit out of a few thousand "nips" & "huns."

The only company I'm aware of that actually questioned the status quo about war & racism & commie fear mongering, etc., was EC. Of course, they also lumped in huge, heaping helpings of gore & violence.
Gore & violence that led to them being censored out of existence.

As far as jingoistic comics corrupting the youth goes, I wouldn't worry. At three bucks a pop, comics aren't exactly aimed at kids any more. At least the kind of ghetto kids they want to lure into the military.

The violent video game angle is kind of amusing too.
I'd be willing to bet that most of the twits who blow hours a day playing Code of Honor or Halo 3 are perfectly content to be heroic gun wielding warriors from a nice safe vicarious distance.

& movies as propaganda?


Not much new there either. Hollywood has always been more than willing to beat the drum of jingoism.
Although, the whole "violence in movies is bad" angle is pretty lame. As I remember it, Hollywood used to be quite astute at censoring out the disturbing bits right up until the 60's came along & liberal film-makers & audiences began demanding more "realism" & more "freedom" to portray violence & sex.

If you doubt it, here's a section of changes demanded by The Production Code Office for The Bride of Frankenstein:

"Twelve cuts in all were required. These included shots of the monster drowning Hans, the monster actually pushing Han's wife into the cistern, the mother carrying her dead child's body in her arms, the idiot nephew strangling his uncle, teh murder of the woman by the half-wit, a shot of a heart being taken from a jar with forceps, and the monster throwing a man over a roof."

None of this is atypical for Hollywood films at the time, yet we still got World War 2, Korea & Vietnam.

Maybe one could bolster this argument if one could find any evidence of the extremely violent & jingoistic movies or comic books or
video games the Nazis entertained themselves with right before they gassed some Jews.

All of this skates perilously close to the "Marilyn Manson made me kill grandma" argument that every right winger trots out when they find original thought just too painful to attempt.

& "I just biked 4 hours straight averaging 10 mph on an old 3 speed. haha."

Gee, I'm incredibly happy for you. While I may not be showing it outwardly I'm doing handstands of joy inside.

Y'know, I wish I had 4 hours a day to putter on my bicycle. I really do.
Instead of getting a bike though, I got responsibility.

It's neat. You should try it.
Of course, I know you'd do the parenting trip so much better than anyone else. Heck, if the kid starts screaming, "I'm hungry, daddy," you could quickly pacify the little tot with many mini toddler sized orgasms. That way you could maintain your free-wheelin' book-a-day, full Lotus till 1 a.m. lifestyle that we all know and, I'm sure, some of us even love.

F.W. Schelling stated that conspiracy means "spiral unity" -- it is hard to hold on to I realize.

And as for my little "trip" well when parents reach their mid-70s they become kinda like kids! haha. In Japan the tradition is for one family member to take care of the elder parents. In the U.S. this is not allowed because of our "rugged individualism."

If you really want to know the bike I took up here was described as "dangerous" by the last mechanic who looked at it. He thought that back tire was about to blow but that was a few months ago. It's because the back pads rub the wheel rim but I just wore them down through pure friction! haha.

Since I have less than 9 bucks in my bank account I wasn't sure what would happen if the bike broke down -- not even enough for an ATM withdrawl to make a phone call! haha.

So going 10 mph was actually the equivalent of 25 mph on a normal bike -- it's good training.

Just like the Prince sent away for 2 years training in the Curse of the Golden Flower. It's my second viewing tonight so I can really take in the background details. Ah the Tang Dynasty. The first viewing was just: wow cleavage and more cleavage. haha. It's actually a really cool conspiracy flic.

on Violence in film...It abstracts real gore, at least hollywood does. 300 makes a mockery out of violence. It displays spears through bodies like knives through fruit, the blood sprays perfectly, but then you see any photo from real war and it's different matter of course. But the photos are abstraction too. We all need to have a nice recently limbless iraqi child in our front room when arriving home each day.

From Otto Rank, via Abe;

“If man is the more normal, healthy and happy, the more he can successfully repress, displace, deny, rationalize, dramatize himself and deceive others, then it follows that the suffering of the neurotic comes from painful truth.”

That is a pretty weird ‘if’ in my book. The person that successfully insulates the conscious element of mind from sub-conscious expressions may appear healthy and happy, but he is losing opportunity for growth. (And forces that are only too happy to define his expression of being for him are jerking him around.) The problem for the neurotic is that this person may allow for more input from the ‘larger mind’ yet still being stuck with communal representations that interpret these inputs, he only becomes more frustrated. So this person is not dealing with painful truth so much as with a greater volume of jumbled information bits. While consistency (illusion) may remain a substantial need in our system of understanding, surely illusion can be found at a higher level where it can have a better relationship to reality.

“If we want to avoid Auschwitz in the future, we must abolish situations in which a human being may classify and discriminate other ones upon absolute, arbitrary criteria. In other words, we must extend the Relativistic Reason over the human/social domain and may admit only relative, demonstrable propositions in this domain as well. This calls, of course, into question nearly all established ideological and political structures, which are based upon absolute principles.”

#3. Taking or presenting relative truth as being absolute truth produces pathology.

From Abe...

“Think for a moment! If David Rockefeller is one of these omnipotent illuminati guys, it would be absolutely, totally and completely impossible to link him to anything.”

There are no omnipotent illuminati guys, but there are CTB heavily invested in maintaining this illusion. Their activities are well known, and as we find out how ‘reality’ is impacted by their crimes, we will gain the confidence to step our illusion up to another level.

Video games are definitely bringing the children to the front. It's admitted, no digging around needed -

Commercial computer games have "great training value," for the Marine Corps Gen. James L. Jones.

Full article here

They are working together with the pentagon, making the games HLA compliant -

HLA is designed to make all defense simulations interoperable.

but no worries, they are looking after your tax dollars -

It still is financially a good deal for the Pentagon because it can benefit from the development work that commercial firms already have funded. The original investment by the Spearhead publisher, for example, was $2 million. "If half of that winds up being useful to the Defense Department, that's a million dollars that the government doesn't have to pay for,"

The most disturbing thing, is that video games could be said to a be a cathartic leisure, but is in fact recruiting through this undercurrent of wanting to see some limbs being blown off, imagining it's your high school teacher, not the want of representing your wonderful country in a necessary war to protect freedom. But then, limb destruction is more of an honest advert than bogus security for a rotting wound.

Richard raised some very valid points....points I considered myself when I read Jeff's post. Comic Books have such an insubstantial allure, why focus on it to propagate a theme of Militaristic Indoctrination and Propaganda. It seems to me Sports is a much more appropriate focus for such assertions.

For example, it appears a number of you men here were Comic Book fans. How many of you signed up to murder for the Plutocracy? You would think the Military Indistrial Complex would utilize their resources more effectively since they can't be everywhere and be everything.....or can they....and if they can, and are, that's really the discussion, not Comic Books and Video Games...they're just examples.

I know the system is set up to goad parents into relinquishing that responsibility....but even so...the parents should not be allowed off the hook when ascribing blame....and keep in mind, I'm a parent of two children and I hold myself to that standard.

The best standard to hold yourself to... I agree totally... at times the whole parent element of this world seems forgotten. All i can say is I am a child of two parents, who held themselves to that self same standard, and am forever grateful for it. But what boggles my mind is that the parent was one a kid, that kid's parent was a kid also, and that whole cycle is what needs breaking if there has been miseducation in that family line due to whatever times they were thrown into. Kids change and grow, but cognitive dissonance is more prevalent with age, and to change ways harder, and so these memes go on and yeah, parents hold the responsibility...but also the responsibility to allow their children to outgrow them in terms of their values which may become outdated. But that itself is a value I guess, to be open to change. I'm just glad I wasn't actually ever bought a console, despite asking for one each year. A game boy was all i got, and tetris never seemed to make my hidden war juices salivate...

I'm a parent too but have to wonder how much parenting is required in the 21st century.

Richard, salient as ever, points out that comix serve different purposes at different times. Second world war comix served their purposes and third world war video games are serving theirs.

Orwell points out that the control freaks "need" oceans to hem in their charges. Eastasia, Oceania, and Eurasia excepting England and Austrailia, are in ficticious wars amongst themselves and the facts of who wins and who were the combatants changes as the needs change. I don't see Captain America as the icon he once was but these things can change. What I am seeing (or hearing) is that the 6 pointed star we call mass media, has banned 400 songs from their play lists, the music from the revolutionary 60's is now a backdrop to car commercials and the agisms of rap to reggae have divided and conquered the generations.

Surrender..I've been thinking about the gauntlet you laid down when you enquired as to what I was doing or going to do "about it". Unlike most of the other posters here, I have been engaging TPTB for several decades. What I discovered is that I am constantly monitored to this day and that my ideas, my life's blood is usurped to a large extent and the doors or cracks or crevices that I found in the system are "fixed" The old adage of "The best things in life are free" is here and they are taking it "under advisement".

When I look down the road and look over my shoulder to see where I've been, the light at the end of the tunnel is fading to black. Should I post one more time how to solve this Gordian knot? Alexander drew his sword and cut it through. Problem solved.

It will be apparent to you if it isn't already, that this planet is not ours.

I'll make a deal with you. You stop defending Jeff and I'll stop defending Richard. Neither of them need us to defend them.

I do think your reaction to Richard was a bit over the top in defending Jeff. My reaction to you in defending Richard was rather diplomatic, especially for me. Of course, if you want to keep on with me, I can always resort to the heavy artillery (metaphor seems appropriate considering the topic), but I'd rather not...afterall, it is Thanksgiving, and we should be giving proper thanks to our Right to Free Speech.

Great points. Kinda like the Matrix, isn't it, both metaphorically and literally.

The thing I want to avoid is having empowerment taken from me by those who say it's all the fault of the controllers and we are powerless victims...because, you're right, if we are to break the cycle, it must come from us because it certainly won't be granted benevolently.

We must become Neo in the aggregate.

My thoughts on the link you provided fall between Mark's and Abe's. I believe Rense is a disinformation hang-out...meaning that there is more than a shred of truth in what is posited there, but it is laced with misdirection and lies.

For that reason, I don't visit that site.....I'm very wary of sources. I recommend adopting the same philosophy. The roads to Truth, if Truth exists as an absolute at all, is permeated with pitfalls...some of our own making, but many fabricated to ensnare rabbits.

Certainly the microcosmic orbit is BLOCKED by the "iron" psychology. Like I say, I sit in full-lotus pretty much all day long and as much of the night as possible. Because I have to use iron -- biking -- or because I can't go into full meditation-trance in public (iron people might attack me) this limits the harmonization process.

The microcosmic orbit meanings "union of heaven (mind) and earth (body)." It's THE secret to reconnecting the lower emotions with the cerebral cortex -- via the pineal gland.

Full-lotus is more effective at this but the microcosmic orbit enables a person to get into full-lotus.

The West is obsessed with "freedom" and not having fanatical absolutes -- because the West is based on DUALISM -- so always these intentional goals run into time-based paradoxes that create irony and double-binds, tragedy, etc.

Female formless awareness is beyond spacetime and then harmonizes the subconscious perceptions of the day -- literally changing your past, like erasing the bad memories and stress -- exorcism -- through synchronized light resonating into the female formless awareness. The same female formless awareness gives precognition -- a sensing of the immediate future and also, while in deep mediation, the far future. Telepathy, based on chi or electromagnetic fields, is a version of this precognition and then as the channels really open up the electromagnetic chi creates telekinesis.

I'll share a twisted kid story -- I was sitting in full-lotus in BK -- reading. A latino family -- the mom and two girls -- take the booth in front of me. The dad later joins them sitting facing me on the other side of their booth. The little girl -- just a toddler, maybe two, is entranced by the full-lotus energy (she can't see the lower half of my body, underneath my table). She's turned toward me, sucking up the energy -- light-bliss. All of a sudden she lifts only her index finger up at me and I think it's one of the baby mimicking games -- so I too lift my index finger up. The dad sees this and goes beet-red. He gets all flustered and soon after says: "vamanos!" As they're leaving -- he first -- the girl literally runs back into the booth on my other side to get closer to me and the mom has to drag her away. The females were in high spirits.

Now that was Reichian.

I thought some would be interested. From the 'biostate newswire'...

This is a continuing series of polls about global opinions and attitudes toward environmentalism.

It shows that supermajorities of the world are in agreement already on environmental issues. This would be a good basis to achieve what the bioregional state promotes: green constitutional engineering to get to sustainability.

The previous three polls [1] [2] [3] showed this huge agreement for greening politics and economics.


On that note, here are some polls from the 1990s that I found in a book by Peritore, Third World Environmentalism: Case Studies from the Global South (1999). It shows a constant global 70-80% support for sentiments that animate the bioregional state for the past 15 years.

"Now how about explaining why that is? Are we born violent and acquisitive, with a penchant for gore, sadism and adrenaline or are we conditioned from a young age to be this way or, as I believe, is it the case that our conditioning takes advantage of our evolutionary endowments?"

Sorry, but the last bit made me giggle. When my youngest child Sam was three he became very toy territorial. The first time one of his sisters tried to take a toy from him, he balled up his little fist & cracked her right in the nose.
Considering his entire media diet up to that point consisted of Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street & Barney, and considering that I've yet to see Barney beat the shit out of any of the little Stepford children that surround him, I'd say that, conditioning or no, our "evolutionary endowments" will lead us down that road whether the media helps or doesn't help.

"Don't be a jackass. Humor is supposed to be corrolated WITH intelligence. Jeff wrote, "Marvel's privileged relationship with the Pentagon, as tacit incubator and explicit feedlot for its slaughterhouse, makes its latest phenomenal success of particular grim interest." I don't think Jeff is actually suggesting that comics are used as a recruitment tool. I imagine the idea is to saturate a society in subtle and not so subtle ways, from as young an age as possible, with the idea that we are the good guys and slaughtering the bad guys is the only solution to our problems."

BPH, have you been in any comics stores lately? The folk buying comics are adults. The days of 12 cent comics at the corner drugstore are long gone. If the Pentagon is trying to "saturate society" "from as young an age as possible," I'd suggest they find better avenues.
Also, Marvel's newest success is built entirely on whoring their characters out to film. It has little or nothing to do with the content of the comics or the films for that matter. Spider-man was succesful, so Hollywood, being the unimaginative institution it is, just starts buying other comics properties. Since every other comics related film other than Spidey has been a dismal failure, I doubt this newest success story will go on much longer.

"The art and science of brainwashing and propaganda embedded in mainstream cinema and media has advanced a bit in the last 50 years richard. It is so ubiquitous, so pervasive that we begin to become habituated to it, we literally stop seeing it. This stuff is dropped right into our subconscious by creating trance states. Children are particularly susceptible to this. Did you look at the Spiderman clip linked above by Abe and follow his analysis? Are you suggesting that we should just yawn and move on?"

So then, let's return to the days of the Hays Office where censorship was the norm & anything, and I mean anything, that could possibly be seen as a disturbance to the public mind will be excised.

Y'know BPH, I've read oodles of jingoisticly violent comics, I've seen oodles of violent movies with questionable pedigree, yet I've never murdered anybody, never had any inclination to join the military, etc.

For such a subtle & all pervasive brainwashing science that they've been perfecting for at least 60 years, its results seem kind of hit & miss.

"Erecting straw men and knocking them down did not seem like a pasttime you indulged in up until now. You must have gotten bored. Since no one was making the argument you are so used to chopping down you had to make it yourself, ascribe it to others and then go through your accustomed motions."

Fair enough BPH, but exactly how did the Nazis get all those sane & reasonable folk to gas all those Jews without one bit of violent media to soften them up first?

"Precisely, dummy. That is in fact how we are going to wage wars in the very near future, from a "safe and vicarious distance". "

Y'know BPH, I keep a list in my wallet of local military recruiters. Whenever I meet some youngster who thinks that this War thing is an incredibly good idea, I hand him the list and even offer to call the recruiters myself & set up his appointments. I've also started the same practice with folk who like video game shooters.
Strangely, no one ever thinks that my idea is very good.

So you'll have to excuse me if I don't let violent video games give me a wedgie. While a talent for video shoot 'em ups may help those already predisposed to join the military, I seriously doubt that playing them turns anyone into a military killing machine.

"The world will always be a messy place filled with moral ambiguity. At the very least we ought to protect our kids and their vulnerable brains from the insidious techniques of mind control that the military/industrial/entertainment complex is saturating our culture with so that they have a chance of making up their own minds when the time comes for that."

Good luck with that one. Whenever you find a suitably efficient roll of mental bubble wrap to wrap our kids fragile brains in, you let me know.

Till then, I suggest you have a little more faith in the kiddies. After all, it didn't work on you or I so it obviously isn't an infallible little beastie.

"but like most crusty curmudgeons, too often you seem as if you already and always have it all figured out."

Nah! Just bored with the post & bored with the comments. If you want to see the logical genesis of this media as propaganda meme, I suggest that you pay Hugh Manatee Wins a visit at the discussion board. He's taken the tadpole of an idea that's swimming here and developed it into a full grown frog.
While I find him interesting, it appears most fellow conspiratists think he's a bit daft.

One more thing BPH, you say,


"Violence and drama sell."

Yah, no shit. Nothing new there. Now how about explaining why that is?"

Why don't you explain why you're here.
I'd be glad to direct you to the blog where the gent rambles on about his love of women's perfume.
Very innocuous & very non-threatening & very very boring.

Or there's the asian girl who has a blog filled with her wistful poetry & photos of her looking....ummm...wistful.
She's been posting for a few years but hasn't attracted one comment.
I'm sure she'd appreciate your presence.
Of course, she's also amazingly boring.

I guess that there just aren't any easy answers, eh?

yup! and the whole powerless victim identity crisis gets to me too...I guess age can be a factor in it, but shouldn't be. But I know for sure (fingers crossed) that I will see the big boys die, i will be blowing little party horns when their soulless corpses are buried with military attention. And for their system to keep going, they need willing pawns, and an unwilling foolish audience. So how is this cycle not breakable? It feels like it's already breaking. The amount of information my generation is now able to access surpasses the previous generation. It is also becoming more digestible through condensed snippet videos like Alternet etc...although the new danger is certainly the sofa revolutionary. But again, that's the parenting! so yeah, no way is the complex superior to your guidance. Their connection is a superficial one, compared with your biological link. Just gotta keep feeding them chorizo...

And on the environmental flex, take a look here in a few hours (it seems to take a while for youtube to process it). Police in Brixton running a van to power a sign.

OK so on an enviro-superhero kick we'd have to call in the Center for Fortean Zoology and the International Cryptozoology Museum.

"Humans lock their knees. Big foot doesn't" -- Loren Coleman, ICM or cryptomundo.

So what is cryptozoology but nothing less than the MODERN, western human psychological projection back onto nature of the lost human traits (paranormal powers from Tai-Chi -- "fox walking" -- as John Brown calls it) -- Nature skills.

I saw the CFZ documentary in West Africa and commented on the Gerald Durrell influence. Jon Downe, the director of CFZ notes in his latest blog video that he took into account internet comments, while sure enough he even gives a shot of a Durrell book in the consideration of giant bats.

These giant bats that, say in Ethiopia, can spread plague by sucking human blood (still undiscovered since vampire bats are supposedly only in the New World), are a potential find in CFZ's current foray in Guyana.

But Chavez beats them to it -- superhero style -- invading a supposed illegal mining operation on a river IN Guyana -- considered a military invasion by Guyana -- just last week!

The same trend in Mali -- the "Symmetric Orchestra" that I heard-saw on worldlink t.v. reminded my of the last time I saw Baaba Mal, the Senegelese singer. This new Mali band has incorporated modern "symmetric" tuning instruments (guitar and bass) while the beginning of the documentary shows the traditional drumming-dancer. You can see the difference, the later being dramatically toned down in vitality. This new "symmetric orchestra", ironically, is, like Chavez, trying to recreate the ancient Malian empire (for Chavez it's Bolivar) -- extended all throughout West Africa (Ghana, Senegal). My Ghana friend, meanwhile, says she won't listen to Baaba Mal any more -- his music is "too Western."

Here's my latest post -- at where they take number crunching a bit too seriously:

First of all consider Professor Hugly and Professor Sayward's article in the spring issue of the journal Philosophy, 1999: "Did the Greeks Discover the Irrational?" I've posted extended excerpts of this article online -- back on my old blog website

Essentially the "proof by contradiction" demonstrates that the ratios are not rational but it does not demonstrate that the hypotenuse equals the new symbol for infinity -- the square root of two.

Mathematicians just ignore this -- because hey! math WORKS. My point is -- "for whom does math work?"

The original use of the Pythagorean Theorem, as I show in my blogbook, was for catapult technology -- as part of the Athenian empire expansion. There is no "pure" science.

The source of the square root of two "ratios" is MUSIC THEORY -- yet it's not allowed to consider music as an alternative solution for the logic involved in irrational ratios.

So "proof by contradiction" is a false framework when in fact the ratios "resonate" asymmetrically -- through the Law of Pythagoras, as complimentary opposite harmonics.

This is why the source of One, as the left-brain source of the I-thought, is FEMALE formless awareness.

So the continuous fraction of the "most irrational of all irrational numbers" -- the Golden Ratio -- is nonlinear but in fact does not converge.

Yet when the Golden Ratio is converted to algebra it must converge because the Order of Infinity is REVERSED -- so that A:B::B:A + B must be changed to B - A for a quadratic solution using zero.

This reversal comes from music theory (as proven in chapter 4 of my blogbook -- so that the Fibonacci number series ratio of 5:8 (minor sixth harmonic), as frequency, the complimentary opposite of 4:5 (major third harmonic) -- is now converted to 5:4 as the cube root of two (through SYMMETRICAL "divide and average" convergence) and 8:5 as the Golden Ratio.

What's lost is the process of natural resonance of complimentary opposite harmonics.

The Dedekind Cut does not solve the logical paradox of the irrationals not proven to be a closed set. A geometrical "point", as Russell and Boyle detail, is not a logical argument. The rationals are inherently tied to geometry through "proof by contradiction" using an irrational symbol (the square root of two) that itself is NOT a geometrical set but just an infinite series, logically justified

AFTER THE FACT (of technological imperialism creating greater disharmony of Nature).

If we say there is a greater infinity of points between irrational numbers than there are points between rationals, because of Cantor Set Theory, this still does not demonstrate a positive proof for introducing the square root of two as an infinite symbol for the hypotenuse.

Now -- let's convert this back to the small universe:

The original "automated" clocks were WATER clocks -- using 12 buckets, based on a lock-weight lever system. This was in China, during the Tang Dynasty. Based on this calibration then time was announced using drums and trumpets -- every two hours.

The character used to describe this two hour system was "Ko" -- it's also used in Taoist Yoga for the small universe practice.

The harmonics of yang, as 2:3, the Perfect 5th, creates a 12 note scale -- or cycle, with 2:3 alternating in reverse as 3:4 -- yin, the complimentary opposite.

This was before the difference between the moon calendar and the sun calendar was solved through "divide and average" mathematics.

So the moon calendar after the "divide and average" system was calibrated as 29.5 days a month but in the old, complimentary opposite system it was 7 x 4 days x 13 months for 364.

In the full-lotus practice the Moon energy is the right eye while the Sun energy is the left eye -- for the CENTRAL channel.

But the "water" clocks -- using the 12 points -- refers to the Moon-water energy (the yin electrochemical energy).

The small universe practice for INDIA is found in Professor Mircea Eliade's book on Yoga: Freedom and Immortality (those three words, maybe not in that order).

I've never seen the small universe for India in ANY other source.

The Brahmin emphasis in yoga is the Solar energy -- which is more mind yoga based -- and it's no accident that the Brahmin astrology now uses the solar calendar.

A similar example is how in the Jewish and Islam Lunar calendar Passover happens during the New Moon which can cause a Solar Eclipse.

In the Christian calendar Jesus stands for the Sun and therefore Passover (the Last Supper) can not be allowed during the New Moon since then Jesus, the Sun, might be conquered by the Moon-water energy.

So the Christian church only celebrates Passover during the Full Moon.

GGG spammed: "If we say there is a greater infinity of points between irrational numbers than there are points between rationals, because of Cantor Set Theory, this still does not demonstrate a positive proof for introducing the square root of two as an infinite symbol for the hypotenuse."

If we say you really give your game away when trying to talk about mathematics, this still does not demonstrate a positive proof for going back to telling us how nice your bicycle is.

But it would be preferable.
