“Temple of The Ancient Dragons” – is back on-line!


For those who have been wondering, waiting, and in any other fashion: pondering;

The Temple of The Ancient Dragons has been put back into action, and made some improvements and a little “house-keeping”, too.

Most of my new posts about Dragon Spirituality, Shamanism, and other general Naturalist/Pagan/Celestial Spirituality will be published there ( at: https://www.templeoftheancientdragons.org/ ). Yes, the site is protected with SSL, so there should be very little problem with “middle-man”-type attacks, etc. Also, the “Temple’s Guestbook”, my “Home of Dragon’s Eye”, and other informative pages/areas will be restored to full fairly soon.

After nearly a year of being off-line (and the unfortunate series of “hang-ups”, let-downs, distractions, etc.),

I can firmly say: “The Dragon-Temple” is BACK, and the Dragons shall be honored once more! ! !

The Dance of Jupiter and Venus.


As Venus and Jupiter dance the Night Sky,
As Mars watches jealously from His hidden corner,
For it was as His first love, Venus, that Mars made His claim.

Dastardly, as Jupiter steps in, and confounds and controls the arrangement,
That Mars grows jealous evermore.
But that BOTH Mars and Jupiter fail to grasp: Venus be forever a Virgin, and of own-kept mind!

The impossible pairing of any with Dear Venus, result being none after.

Lest, the foolhardy dances with Venus,
With prospective Heart, and hopeful intentions,
Be all for naught!

Venus struts off, all her virginity left intact,
For some other anxious Soul to ply His tricks,
And fail to win Her hand thereafter.

A Soul’s Journey: My Interpretation of the Development of Soul.


A figured this would be a good time to write about what I have learned,

Through personal experiences, the journey of the Soul, from one Life to the next.

My particular beliefs about the Soul, Spirit, and all the other possible “bodies”, physical and non-physical, differ greatly from most of today’s known (and a few not-so-known) spiritual “systems”: I view the “spirit” and the “soul” as two different aspects that coexist from beginning to end.

One, the Spirit, is what we start off with, as human beings start off life as an infant –

With only a minimal vestige or “budding” of personality traits, characteristics, or whatever means to describe them. Everything has Spirit as its inner-dimensional existence. All Spirit(s) have a particular vibration that resonates within and without the known (and again, not-so-known) Cosmos (by “cosmos”, I mean far greater an expression than simply “universe” – IE: “everything”). The Spirit is the starting point or “template” in which to build upon the various experiences and knowledge attained through the steps (or “lives”) one travels.

The Soul, is that which becomes the uniqueness and “personality” (for lack of a better descriptor) worn by the particular Spirit.

The Soul becomes the vast accumulation of experiences, feelings, knowledge, and general other individualistic characteristics that identify this Spirit as an individual reflection of what we may think of as “God”. Just as each star, sun, grain of sand on a beach, can be as unique to one another – so can the various “reflections of God” we call “Soul”. The Spirit accumulates this make up of a “personality” as in “building a Soul”. The Soul is the individualized aspect of that singular piece of Spirit. The Soul becomes, as its own unique Cosmic Vibration.

Now,

I can hear the various chorus calls of how I am “wrong” and there is “no degree of separation” of Spirit. This is the usual “establishment-oriented” religious dogma that plagues humanity with this “there is no such thing as individuality” mode. Well, I say they are not truly exploring that realm of individuality to experience it for themselves. Most of them will never venture into that “unknown territory”, because they are constantly gerded against such thoughts by their dogmatic teachers! Yes, we are all from the same origin, but like the proverbial “child”, we eventually must mature, and begin the journey towards individualizing and exploring the realms of the Spiritual unknown, IE: Individuality. The child eventually leaves “home” when it grows up and matures, to start a new life of its own – and start a new family. That newly-“emancipated” adult becomes responsible for its own actions, reaction from those actions, and recreating new realities.

The idea of “reincarnation” and “schooling through multiple lives”.

One late night radio program had a very interesting guest on it.

Though I have long forgotten his name, he said a very catchy and startling phrase that rang loudly within me: “Schoolhouse Earth“! It made a lot of sense to me in that “life” is all about learning. One of the greatest teachers one has (and, I am pretty sure that every “living thing” has this as a teacher) in Life is experience. Experience, each and every instance, event, and reaction, has a lot to teach us about our travels in “life”. No other teaching or education “system” can compare, let alone parallel what experience can teach us, and to such great depths of knowledge. Experience is they only teacher of a thing called: “Wisdom”. No other teacher can “give” wisdom. Only the individual learning through hard-earned experience. Other teachers can give tools, methods, and basic examples, but experience is gained by actually learning to use them well (That’s Wisdom).

Anyway,

Those who acknowledge reincarnation as part of “life” and pure existence,

See the purpose behind multiple, different lives, and how each “life” adds to the ever-growing collection of “lifetime experiences” of the Soul. The Spirit passes through everything, and beyond anything including “time”. The Soul, gets progressively more-defined, and more individualistic in its Cosmic Vibration(s). Each and every interation (life) is simply another stage the Soul, and ultimately, the “richness of the Spirit”, grow and become more “God-like”. (We ARE considered to be born in the image of our Creator, aren’t we?)

Being that the Spirit (and its developing Soul-Personality) is transcendant over everything and anything (especially over the physical),

Then would it not make complete sense that the Spirit (and Soul) are not limited to inhabiting one specific, singular physical (or other) form??? The form one takes in a specific life, is purely to allow that Soul to gain the experience that is most common through the experiences in that form. Each particular form (species, especially) experiences different aspects and qualities of life. The world appears differently to them through own eyes, ears, and all other senses that are common and integral with that form. Ever experience the world as an ant, or as a bird, or even as a fish??? Such cases of interesting memories have been recorded during the hypnosis sessions, as told by the many researched human subjects of those sessions. Some have even recalled, through deep hypnosis, astonishing details that were later found to be relevent and actual happenings in a part of history!

This then brings us to the subject of, . . .

“Otherkinism”.

Many of today’s religious “systems” and “churches” (to include most of the “new-age” belief “systems”) turn rather sour on discussions about “otherkin” and “otherkinsim”. (My, how ‘tolerant’ some of these religions claim to be!!!) They believe it is all impossible, and think that folks who follow the line of thinking about otherkinism being real and demonstrable are a bunch of kooks, phonies, and mentally ill. (My, how ‘tolerant’ some of these religions claim to be, again!!!) They may also consider this subject as being purely from the “gamers’ groups” and rpg’ers. Well, the ancient peoples also had different ideas – and considered trans-species Soul incarnations to be quite real. The reason why many practicing Buddhists and Hindus (and many variations and “sects” of the old Vedic Ways) are purely vegetarian (or nowadays, more like “vegan”) cited, is that the animals around them may be the reincarnations of their departed loved ones and family members (especially those who were considered “rewarded” for their pious living in one or more past-lives). They truly believe that killing and eating of any of the animals could possibly end up in their killing off a being with the Soul of their departed. (Sounds a bit like otherkinism reversed, doesn’t it?) So, much of today’s Buddhism and Hinduism centers around a form of “otherkinism”! So what’s the difference towards those who claim to have lived past-lives in non-human form???

In closing this article,

I want to stress the fact that there are some in the world who whole-heartedly believe in otherkinism, and the ability of the Soul to transcend ANY form it feels is necessary from life to life, to gain a fuller experience of its own existence. “Otherkins” may not be very well known, nor may there be very many who have the courage to claim they are non-human Souls (even though, the “Soul” is far more capable than just being “human”). To agree with one of Jafira Dragon’s modes of thinking: “It is not necessarily an easy thing to reconcile with, that one is an otherworldly Soul, or may have existed in a different form in a past life.” There is even an “e-book” on the subject of otherkinism! The first kind of “manual” of its kind, and a very detailed, well-developed piece of writing that continues to evolve as more experiences and personal testimonies come to the surface. It is called “Jafira’s Draconity Guide” (tailored mainly towards those who consider themselves “Dragon-Souls”).

As to also speak of the several well-practiced psychics I knew,

I was said, repeatedly, that I myself am an “ancient Soul” (meaning, I apparently have been around in different incarnations for a very long time). There are probably many who are also “Ancient Souls”, and perhaps some, who do not even remember it yet! Such is the aspect of a Soul; Ageless, timeless, and ever-present in any reality, and every reality. A practicing shaman, often one who tries to incorporate the “old ways” of shamanism, would see this an ineffable truth. The Soul journeys onward and outward, regardless of its present form. The form a Soul takes in its present life, does not necessarily define its state of being (other than through the basis of experiencing life through the eyes of that form). In the simplest way to express it: “The body, does NOT define the Being.

Group To Unveil Satan Statue In Detroit During ‘Largest Public Satanic Ceremony In History’


(WWJ/AP) Detroit CBS Local,

Baphomet Bronze Statue
Baphomet Bronze Statue

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A group is planning to unveil an 8-foot-tall bronze statue featuring a goat-headed Satan in Detroit during a gathering that’s being billed as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history.”

The Satanic Temple has said Saturday’s private event will be open only to people with tickets, $25 each. Invitations to “The Unveiling” summoned guests to prepare for “a night of chaos, noise, and debauchery… Come dance with the Devil and experience history in the making.” The event location is not being announced publicly and is known only to those with tickets.

. . . More here . . .

COMMENT FROM THE POSTER:

I really wish I could afford to go and see it!

Rather interesting that Baphomet is supposedly a hermaphroditic God. That is, this statue is missing the feminine characteristics of the mammaries (breasts). So, this appears to be the over-masculinization of Baphomet (IMHO).

Also, rather interesting that some refer to him as “Satan”. This is NOT CORRECT! This is the image of Baphomet as depicted originally by Eliphas Levi. Satan comes across as a composite image from several different (originally) Pagan Gods and images melded together, and given (by the early Catholics and Christians) the various epithets and titles of evil and mendaciousness. This was a tactic by the early imperial churches to malign the Pagans they were busy torturing and forcing into converting to the new religions. Baphomet is pictured as having one hand elevated, and the other lowered: To represent the “As Above, So Below” principle of the known existence(s). Baphomet is more significant with balance, especially between Light and Darkness.

There is very little aspect of “evil” about him/her/it/them that is realistic.

Those who manage to afford the $75.00 / per person admission to go as “VIP Guests”, may get some photos of themselves with the bronze statue of Baphomet. – I would LOVE to hear about your experiences!

Attention CITIZENS OF THE USA: Why I will NOT Be Celebrating “4th of July” The Same Way You Will Be.


Angry Red Dragon. (c) Anne Stokes – at: http://www.topdesignmag.com/

I find very little reason to be celebratory of a now-shallow, futile LIE of a “holiday”, in light of the way the United States of America’s current state of affairs be, these days!

Instead,

I will spend the day, which is more like an ordinary day to me, with lots of prayer and supplication to those I pray to, for the sake of all of us, as a “nation” of People, not “laws”. I will also seek to spend a majority of the day teaching the People WHY this day should be better honored and cherished, by actually living it to its full meaning and intent: “The preservation and expression of FREEDOM and LIBERTY for ALL, not just the select, politically-favored few.

We have, for far too long, allowed those who are unfit to rule over us, dictate what we can and can not do, what we can and can not say, what we can and can not think, what we can and can not believe, what are and are not our enforceable rights, – all under “the color of law”! We have been superficial, very lazy, lying to ourselves, allowed ourselves to be continuously lied to and about, allowed others to dictate to us who and what we are, and worst of all – SUPPORTED ALL OF THESE WRONGS, BECAUSE: “THEY ARE THE LAW”! I am soooo sick of hearing it, time and time again, excuses of every stripe and color being used to justify WHY we should give up on the remainder of our rights, and enjoy the “safety” being provided to us through this legalized “protection rackett”, all because the so-called experts and “legal scholars” keep telling us “it’s for your own good, your protection“.

So really,

Just exactly WHAT reason is there to “celebrate” the ever-so-increasing, gradual corruption and enslavement of an entire “nation of The People” that presupposed itself to be the “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave“??? Have we been so softened up by all the TV-sports, “enter(train)ment”, “church” sermons telling us to “obey, without question all orders by government“, and the continued assaults on our personal health and actual safety FROM despotism, all because it is all supposed to be “good for us“??? Even the genuine Divinely-Inspired Souls would see the huge disconnect from reality here! Especially those of us who, in reality, “walk with the Dragons and their delegated guides” should know the difference between these lies (all of them) from what is supposed to be the Natural, Divine Reality of Being, AND experiencing life – and all it has to offer!

So please indulge me, for a moment,

As I relate and pass on to you, WHY the Dragons, and the Dragon-Symbolism mean so much to me, WHY they play such a significant role in my daily life, AND WHY they are the basis of my spirituality and my practices. This may also explain WHY the modern “church” despises anything related to “dragon” and dragon-symbolism. This may take us a little down that unknown path of what it is truly like to be “dragon” and/or of the Dragon-Soul. This is a path I explore, every moment of every day. Not a single day passes by, where I do not at least render a prayer, a “thank you”, or some spiritual and Divine act of interaction with the Dragons of the other realms, and of this one. There is not one instance where I would ever be curseful or upbraiding towards my Dragon Family and their (and my) allies.

For one,

My belief system became evident, several years ago, as to WHY it was actually incompatible with most (if not virtually ALL) of the current “new-age” movement, as well as incompatible with the modern “churches”: It was because it is a path of Self-Realization, and individual responsibility. Dragons grow old and wise on the food of individual-empowerment through realization, personal responsibility and accountability, and living to the highest standards of integrity, coupled with knowing which battles are worth fighting for, and fighting the valiant fight when called upon to do so. The might of a Dragon, is in his (or her) Heart, to start with. The Great Fires of Courage and Strength, are what powers any goal a Dragon may have. The Heart, is where all the energy and power is concentrated, by force of Will, and discharged towards achieving the intended goal. This is done with forethought, measurement, and a sharp focus on achieving the end result, while braving the “elements” of fear, uncertainty, and apprehension, through constant practice and refinement. The Dragon does NOT shy away from controversy, as a matter of any perceived political pursuasion nor pressures, in order to achieve that which is right, balanced, and in keeping with the Divine Natural Law of things.

Two,

The Dragon seeks total liberty to be, and to express itself as a Divine and Powerful Being. The Dragon knows when He/She is being imposed upon, by an opposing force that seeks His/Her enslavement and eventual “destruction”. The Dragon is not so easily enslaved, and not so easily beguiled into accepting a servile role. The Dragon is a co-creator in the Universe, and beyond. One of the main things of a Creator AND/OR Co-Creator goes on to “create” (and, if necessary, destroy), are Realities. These be created from the voids of Chaos, and the ashes of the various false “realities”. – THAT, is why many “churches” and their doctrines fear the Dragon, and all He/She stands for!

Thirdly,

In talking about this day, in the supposed “Age of Reason”, it seems that everything about today, and all that occurs now, is everything BUT reasonable. Those who scream the loudest about “tolerance”, are everything BUT tolerant of the differences of opinions, beliefs, political thinking and persuasion, and life habits. The “Age of Reason” has been anything BUT reasonable, across the entirety of the Natural “Human Condition” and experience! The Dragon is all about Reason, and the Natural consequences behind it, and BECAUSE of it. The Dragon constantly may define and redefine His/Her own reality, and affect a part of the shared reality. It is THIS particular Power that most modern “Witches” pay lipservice to, but often times, relegate to wishful thinking on their part. Then, THAT becomes nothing more than a mere fantasy, to only be talk-shopped about, but not truly acted upon! The Dragon, should be regarded by ALL witches, as the ultimate, archetypal essence of what it is to be, a Divine Being, filled with the Power to make any possibility happen.

To bring this all Home:

I harken all ye, to heare this message, for one and all,

It is time to fully wake up! Your houses and denizaries are about to burn in the fecundities of out-of-control political power and averice. Those who lord over you do NOT care of nor about you! You are but a pawn in their grandeose “game” of posturing and power-plays. There is proof, fact, and evidence aplenty – that your country (and mine) now burn on the funeral pyres of apathy, laziness, ignorance, mendacity, and self-righteous false-indignity. Our wonderful “nation”, “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” – is being summarily cremated and put out to the realm of the forgotten! Those things and deeds we choose to NOT do today, will be deeds and acts never known, and never ventured, towards the possibility of a brighter future, for ALL OF US, not just for the select few, who have all our (pillaged) resources at their disposal. The Dragon can not, and shall not help us all, if we are to refuse to help ourselves, and our various kin, from the problems and travails we helped ourselves into! The Dragons only help those, who show their worthiness of receiving their help. – The true sign of the respect of free will!

Our past and ancestry knew of the Power and the Wisdom of the Dragon. So where have WE gone wrong, in these modern times? ? ? The Dragon, as a liberator, simply shows us how, and guides us towards, LIBERATION FROM ANOTHER’S YOKE OF SLAVERY, IF – we choose do to so. If it is one major lesson that the Dragons have led me to: It is that FREEDOM STARTS FROM WITHIN!

Then, and ONLY THEN, can Freedom truly Ring,

In this Land of the Free, Home of the Brave!

The “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part II


How Our Present Reality may be defined or at least shaped by Our Past.

Many of our personal “isms” that we may express or act upon today, are often supported or induced by memories of our past.

Some of the things we may dislike, or altogether avoid, that we are likely to encounter later in our lives, usually come from some past experiences in them. These kinds of experiences tend to be unfavorable or even very tragic ones. This commonplace with folks who have suffered some form of personal trauma due to experiencing an event that may have traumatized them to the point of eliciting nightmares as an after-effect. Some of the more common cases arising from folks who have grown up in especially violent environments, 1) were victims of a violent or non-violent but traumatizing crime committed by another, 2) wartime soldiers’ and veterans’ experiences on the battlefields (in what used to be called “shell-shock” in the old times, and now is called “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” [PTSD]), 3) those who experienced abuse in childhood years at home, 4) social problems with others – especially from being bullied by others, 5) and various other “forgotten”, but unresolved experiences. There is a very long list of the types of past events and experiences that may affect how one sees the world, and interacts with it, today.

The Nature of Some of our Phobias:

Many personal phobias may arise from something, or a multiple of things, that have been experienced in the past. Such memories of those events may be foggy at best, and not so visible in the here and now, but their effects can still be felt, although subtly. A common coping mechanism to “get past” a particular event is often by denying it. Such a denial of its occurrence does not necessarily “make it go away”, nor may it lend itself to a simple healing solution. Such an experience can easily lead to life-long effects, and even interfere with the individual’s potential abilities at interacting with society, if not dealt with in a timely manner and in a way that opens the doors to some workable, effective solutions. Most of these phobias will have a strong emotional element to them, relating directly to the emotional response of the experience which may have resulted in them.

Some cases of particular phobias, and/or other specific “nervous ticks” may be expressed, even without a direct recollection of the past experience that triggered them. Some adverse experiences may even have some folks become more socially withdrawn, as they become distrustful of others around them. This is one major area where modern psychiatry has failed miserably in its pursuits for “treatments”, especially when utilizing such methods as aversion-therapy, prescribed medications (petro-chemical drugs), and other “prosthetic bandage” methods which do very little to address the root causes and problems. Such treatment options are usually graded on how much profit can result from the treatment plans. Medicating such patients is especially inefficient, usually unhelpful, but profitable to the doctors AND the manufacturers of those products, even at the expense of the patient – and possibly society, later.

The Unseen Scars.

Many of the so-called “psychological” problems that result from unfortunate past experiences, are often referred to as the “Unseen Scars”, where such injuries were not so physically evident, but the emotional pain remains, hidden from public view. Such emotional “scars” can remain for many years, up until the last of a being’s life. Medications, aversion therapies, and especially “electroshock therapy” (which WAS outlawed years ago, but seems to be reintroduced as a “viable treatment” in recent years) DO NOT and HAVE NOT BEEN EVIDENCED TO resolve nor even efficiently “treat” emotional scars, nor emotionally-rooted behaviors and behavioral problems. This because they do absolutely NOTHING to address the root causes, but simply mask over the symptomatic behaviors with a prosthetic effect! Yet, the immense pressure from the American Medical Association, American Psychological Association, National Institutes of Mental Health, and the many different organizations (to include a few NGO’s) is what helps to keep these unworkable, ineffective treatment options in place as the “standards of medical treatment”.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, volume 5 (DSM-V) and all previous editions came out as the “bible of human psychology”, and the favorite “go-to” book for psychologists and psychiatrists. Every “diagnosis” is attributed to “mental conditions” and “abnormalities” that are identifiable by behavioral characteristics, rather than any reproducible pathology or lab results. What’s even more disheartening: Most of the “syndromes” and conditions are more rooted in emotional scars from past traumatic events and/or other current, ongoing events. As any commonsense-minded individual could find, when one does not address the root problems, but merely masks them with some form of “treatment” or therapy that deals only with the behavioral symptoms, these are problems that are very likely to resurface! Chemical drugs are often only able to be “safely” taken for so long, before they build up to toxic levels in the body, and/or the body becomes resistant to them over time (through tolerance). Most of these drugs ARE toxic to the normal-functioning body. The body will try to do what it does best: Detoxify, and then eliminate these substances from the body altogether. Some of these medical drugs may, themselves, leave behind certain scars, be they physical and/or “psychological” as well.

Where the Failures of the Current Treatment Orthodoxy fail.

What many folks are not asking about, because they may not be seeing the real hidden-in-plain-view problem: “If our psychological medicine is supposedly superior to competing methods and orthodoxies, then why do we see so many examples of where the treated (former, but life-long) patients fall into relapses?” I thought the business of medicine and healing, was about actually healing (and even curing) conditions so that the patients can go on to lead healthy, self-sufficient lives??? – And THERE is the rub, and a prime example, yet again, that today’s “medicine” is not about curing or healing anything. The average psychologist/psychiatrist would want you “mentally ill” and dependent upon their care and advice for life! This is guaranteed profits for the long haul.

Just as much as there are severe conflicts of interest in physical medicine and where it is practiced, so the same can easily be said of “mental health” programs and their clinics. Many individuals who still carry around emotional scars, deeply buried within, are taught to rely on the various drugs and other treatment regimens as their relief. Yet, many still suffer the silence of their own memories, the pains of past experiences they have never been taught to work through and release from. To them, life does not seem to be the way it “should be”. To some, life has become more and more of a history of disappointments and many insurmountable hurdles. The current orthodoxy for treatment options is failing them worst of all.

So what kinds of alternative options are there available to those who are still dealing with “past baggage” and emotional traumas in their lives? That is a question I will do my best to answer in a later post in this series. What needs to be remembered here is: With the appearance of increased acts of spontaneous violence and mass-murders, and the fact that an unworkable system of treatments and therapies seems to always be championed as “The Answer” to everyone’s problems, is it any wonder why some folks would start to see that this treatment orthodoxy is NOT WORKING AS PROMISED?!? The MORE psychological intervention that the state invests in, the MORE we are seeing results that do little to justify the continued orthodoxy for treatment, as we have it now!

IN THE NEXT ARTICLE: “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part III

I want to explore a little bit of the surfacing of repressed memories, and some of the acts that often result from reliving those memories. I would like to relate some of my personal experiences with folks whom I have known for a number of years. Some of them drink. Some of them, quite a bit. There is fertile discussion on the subject of whether alcohol “makes” anyone do anything they normally would not say or do when they are perfectly sober. I seek to dispel this meme from plain examples as observed, and understood.

Until then,

The “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part I


What really drives us as sentient beings?

After serious thought and contemplation, AND after a series of tragic events (real or “scripted”),

I decided that I was going to tackle a central issue, and debunk a meme that even most of the “alternative media” and other blogs are missing the point on! I am absolutely amazed that even “educated” folks on BOTH sides of the issues are missing this important fact: Drugs and/or any other intoxicating substance, lacking Consciousness and Will of their own, simply CAN NOT “make” anyone do or say anything! They simply are tools and “pathways” that ease the possibility of someone doing or saying what he/she intended to do (usually something that was deeply buried within mind, and inhibited by the being’s own “consciousness filters”).

In this mini-series,

I am going to take all of you on a journey into the realm of Mind, and the magnificent organ in which it inhabits during this life: The Brain. This is a journey that many millions upon millions of Shamanic practitioners and their clients have taken for a great many thousands (if not millions) of years that our kind has been upon this Earth. This is not from any classes nor any universities. I state, emphatically, here and now, that I have NO college degree and no certificates that “qualify” my statements as “scientific fact” or otherwise. These are simply from my own observations of real-life events and happenings, as well as from my own personal experiences and dealings with other people. In essence, the “establishment” has NOT vetted anything I am about to say, and NO ONE ELSE (on this green and blue Earth) has taught me any of this. This is all from my own learning and experience, as well as from a keen observation.

Therefore,

You are free to judge this mini-series and what in it I present to you, as factual, theoretical, or completely bogus as you may see fit. All I ask of you, is that you at least keep an open mind when reading this mini-series, and withholding your judgments until you have read and understood, what I have presented, how I based my conclusions and observations, and what I have demonstrated as the basis of these writings. These articles DO related to spirituality, medicine, and YES – some politics. This issue is most important to me, and it should also be very important to you, the readers of this blog. IF we are to actually fix what is wrong in this world, humanity’s place within it, and truly regain our personal power from those who lord over us (to our own “shepherded” self-destruction) with it, then we need to re-examine the basis of Mind.

Mind is the seat of consciousness.

When I say this, I literally mean it: Mind IS the seat of consciousness. It is where all things begin. It is where all things are decided well before being done. It is the realm of thought, dreams, images, wishes, desires, and any visualizations of what is to become. It is that “place” which engage ourselves and our surroundings, and also interact with others, to form ideas, goals, and ambitions based upon what we experience, and what we wish to do. The Mind is like the seed, and the fertile plain in which to start its journey of beginnings, growth, fruition, and results.

The Mind is also the “vault”, as in an experiencial “library”, a trove of memories, it is that “place” where we can “store” what we experienced, for later recall and use (such as, in problem-solving). We have the ability to store far more “data” than any advanced computer, even when we may seem to “forget” due to advanced age, deteriorating health, stress, or whatever malady that may interfere with our ability to recall. We do not actually forget. We tend to have trouble recalling something when we say we “forget”. The Mind only “forgets”, when it is intent on doing so, but merely by happenstance. This also takes a conscious effort from a conscious Mind. We have to actually forcibly “erase” that particular thought, and sometimes, this does not work as well!

 The “Layers” of Mind and Consciousness.

I have come to understand that there are several “layers” to the Mind, or more appropriately – Consciousness. These correlate to the various “mind-states” or states-of-mind that are recognized in modern “medicine” and modern “science”. These different mind-states even have names and are recognized by measuring devices’ (Electro-Encephalographs – or E.E.G.’s) readings of brain activity through the various different wavelengths (or Brainwave Frequencies). What much of today’s science has documented as fact, many of our ancestral shamanic peoples already knew for thousands upon thousands of years: The Mind operates at different “states”, as through different levels of consciousness. In other words, this was already ancient knowledge!

The different “mind-states” have different properties and effects, as well as varying degrees of sharpness or “lucidity” of their images and visualizations. These different states can also have their own varying degrees of emotional actions/reactions to the various images and/or recalled experiences that may have actually happened, or are imagined to happen (like, in dreams, and especially “nightmares”). The rest of the body will often (and usually should) respond, even within the different mind-states, to the various imagery being played within the brain, especially if there is are strong emotional aspects or qualities to them. The level of physical activity (that is, many of the “involuntary” functions) of the body, should also operate on a similar level to the level of consciousness in the brain.

The Brain and Mind should not be confused with being the same!

The Mind is that aspect of being where consciousness is to be found and resides.

I do not consider it to be physical at all. I consider it to be an intangible characteristic of the state of Being. That is, it can not be objectively measured by test instruments, standard curricula, or any mathematical formulae. It exists outside of the limiting definition of “physicality”. Just as it exists outside of space and time. Mind can be thought of as an abstract “etheric body” that is parallel to our other “bodies” (like the Physical, Emotional, “Akashic”, etc.), with its own capabilities and “properties”.

The Brain, on the other hand,

Is that physical organ, which is like a very complex “computer”, that is inhabited by Mind. It truly is a marvel in how it was created, and how it functions on so many different levels and complexities! The Brain truly, is a computing device that is beyond anything that could ever possibly be created, with man’s technology or in any laboratory. It is where the Mind is able to interact with this physical existence, through a physical body, and serve as a “link” between this world, and other worlds (or, if you will, from this “ordinary reality”, in and among the “non-ordinary realities”). The Brain serves well as a “bridge” between and among the other worlds, mainly through the realm of Mind.

Fully-Conscious State, or “wide-awake” mind-state:

In this mind-state, one is fully awake and alert to things around him/her. This where the perception-filters and judgment are constantly in use. It is where we do a lot of our active learning, assimilating, judging, measuring, and various other proactive motions and thoughts. We constantly respond to a lot of our external stimuli, sometimes almost instantly, and to those happenings around us. We are aware of the physicality of our existence, and may be aware of a few of the more-subliminal elements in our environment, but not necessarily so. We may even be easily distracted by our surroundings, as opposed to being introspective of our inner state of being. This is the state in which we interact most with the world around us. Everything in this state can be observable and quantified.

The Sub-Conscious State, or otherwise known Semi-Trance State, or “Hypnogogic State”:

It is in this mind-state, that one is not fully cognizant of the physical details of the physical world, but is not exclusively ignorant of it. In this mind-state, one is very relaxed, but still alert to the sounds around him/her, alert to physical stimuli and sensations, smells, and may or may not be acutely discerning of the quality of sounds and stimuli, etc. This is thought to be like a “bridge” between consciousness and the total sub-consciousness. This is a common mind-state, brought about by meditation, prayer, and chants (or mantras) that helps the percipient to relax into this mind-state. The physical body’s various activities may also relax or decrease in “beat” if the percipient is able to truly relax the mind and thought processes. This is also where one can effectively “reprogram” him/herself, and also commence self-healing. One in this mind-state can instill a certain amount of control over body functions, thoughts, images, and emotions, but still be aware of their effects. Many Theraveda and Ayurveda techniques make full use of this mind-state, to bring about desired changes within the individual percipient.

This is also the level of consciousness where beings are very receptive to suggestion, and “programmable” (to a certain extent) by an outside “influencer”, like a hypnotist, psychiatrist, or any other knowledgeable therapist. One in this mind-state should be very much be on his/her guard to the possibility of an externality having undue influence upon him/her. This level is often the preferred level in which to “program” because the judgment and perception filters are partially “submerged”, and therefore not as available as one’s “watchdogs”, like they would be in the fully-awake mind-state! Being that judgment is less apparent, this serves as almost a direct gateway to the subconscious mind-state.

Here’s a neat little table of Brainwave Frequencies I have found on-line from Infinite Minds website:

Between 0.5 and 90Hz are the states and frequencies that comprise the vast majority of our day to day experiences. The table below, breaks these core frequencies down further and shows some frequencies outside of this range that correspond to some more rare and unusual states of consciousness.
Name Frequency Characteristics
Lambda ~200Hz Self awareness, higher levels of insight and information. Tibetan monks that walk barely clothed for days through the snow have exhibited high levels of these. They are difficult to measure and little is known about them. They are carried on the very slow moving Epsilon Waves (<0.5Hz).
Hyper Gamma ~100Hz
Gamma 38 – 90Hz Important in harmonizing and unifying thoughts processed in different parts of the brain. Combines different perceptions. Essential for complex motor processes. Suppressed totally by anaesthetic. Found in all parts of the brain.
Beta (High) 18 – 38Hz Wide awake, alert, focused, analyses and assimilates new information rapidly, complex mental processing, peak physical and mental performance, cannot be sustained indefinitely otherwise exhaustion, anxiety, and tension result.
 Beta (Mid range) 15Hz-18Hz Wide awake and alert behaviour.
 Beta (Low) 12 – 15Hz Also known as Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR) – vigilance, reduced mobility, shallow breathing, less blinking, fixed attention and eye focus, enhancing through neuro-feedback has a calming effect.
Beta-Alpha 12Hz Hyper-efficient in processing single tasks as the brain can focus on the details as well as the overall task at the same time
Alpha 7.5 – 12Hz Mental coordination and resourcefulness, relaxation, alert but not mentally processing anything, inward focus, calmness, at ease, deep breathing and closed eyes can amplify alpha wave production, peaks around 10Hz.
Alpha-Theta 7.48Hz Schumann frequency. Stimulates retrieval of memories from the subconscious. This is the natural vibrational frequency of the ionosphere in the earth’s atmosphere.
Theta 4 – 7.5Hz Associated with memory access, learning, deep meditation, sensations, emotions, the threshold of the subconscious, dreaming.
6.2 – 6.7Hz Cognitive activity, sustained attention, low anxiety
4.5Hz Associated with many altered consciousness states.  Shamanic trances, Tibetan mantras and Buddhist chants use this frequency to access trance states
Theta-Delta ~3.5Hz Long term memory access
Delta 0.5 – 4Hz Deep sleep, human growth hormone release, low blood pressure, low respiration, low body temperature. No muscle movement – Reticular Activating System (RAS) shuts this down.
Epsilon <0.5Hz As with Lambda and HyperGamma waves, less is known about these states due to the rarity of observing them. They have reportedly been associated with when state Yogi’s go into when they achieve “suspended animation” where no heart beat, respiration or pulse are noticeable.

So, as we can see, the brain IS a very complex system, and the Mind represents an ever-changing program, “firmware”, interface, and everything else that defines who and what we are – beyond the physical body, in which the Brain is a part of the physical side of being. The individual Mind can exert influence and BE influenced upon and from, within and without. Our “nature” is defined by the perceptions we have built up from our own life’s experiences, and what we have learned (or have been “programmed”).

Once we understand the basics of Mind and Consciousness, we understand that any action or active “doings” require a conscious thought in order for that action to take place. Inanimate objects and/or substances, by virtue of them being “inanimate” and lacking any real “proactive” ability (or lacking the expression of a “proactive” ability), can NOT be the source of an action. In other words, they can NOT “make” or “do” anything on their own. They require a conscious user, as is the case of any “tool”, in order to affect any changes.


In the next article: The “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part II,

I will delve some into past memories. That is, memories of the past in THIS life, and the subject of repressed memories. Many of our pains, anguishes, and other lingering injuries (both physical-effects and non-physical, emotional) are often the result of or from repressed memories, especially of tragic events and other negative happenings in our lives. Many times, do we see these memories resurface in unexpected times and places, and sometimes in unexpected situations. In some cases, these “flashbacks” can have very dangerous and disastrous results if not dealt with in a manner that safely disempowers them.

I’m Sorry but, Natural is Beautiful! Nature Rules. – Part 5


How “Being Human” really matters, and trans-humanism’s ideologies conflict with the concept of being a Natural Human. (Supremacy-over-Nature lunacy.):


 There seems to be a “mentality” surrounding the trans-humanism movement that is very disturbing to me:

One of: Supremacy over Nature, and over the limits of Nature (as “imposed” upon us in our current existence).

In every historic instance,

A few self-professed masters of science, truth, and higher learning have continued the flawed thinking that: “Nature is imperfect, and it is up to US to refine and improve upon where ‘Nature left off’.” A general paraphrasing and summation of the thoughts and ideas of the privileged few in high academia and industry (interestingly enough), that shows a supreme arrogance and virtual narcissisitic attitude towards Nature, and the present condition of mankind. Through their lenses, the world is all screwed up because of ‘Nature’s Faults’. Never once, is it ever entertained within their high-society circles, that Nature IS quite perfect, and has been functional for over four billion years! The Human species has been one of the most successful in “Being Fruitful and Multiplying”, even in spite of the many harsh conditions around the world (like the driest deserts to the coldest artic reaches), and what mankind has placed upon himself (through imperial wars, conquests, “purges”, etc.). No matter what the circumstance, Man, as a creature and child of Nature, has always managed to bounce back and reclaim his territory and whatever cultures and customs that have survived. All of this, without resorting to “going virtual”, nor “uploading himself, his memories, etc.” to some centralized and hazard-prone mainframe. Man has shown a remarkable resilience, even against himself – in spite of himself, without transforming into something other than a natural creature and inhabitant of this world.

The history of man’s successes and failures is a testament to what mankind has been able to accomplish, for good or for ill, by his own innate, natural abilities. WHERE is the imperfection in all that? Perhaps, adopting an old maxim: “Spiritual Beings, having a Human Experience” makes most sense here. However, most of the Trans-Humanism Movement are, by and large, atheistic. A-HA! Maybe there is something to this whole process, all based on this very narrow-minded thinking. That is, the very narrow-minded thinking that they claim that those of us who believe in a “god”, or believe in any kind spiritual afterlife has a “mental disorder”, or are delusional. Perhaps, this is a “run-off” from the distaste of any form of religion, courtesy of the flawed concepts and teachings of the modern-day “church”??? It seems to me that the greatest contributor to the growing ranks of “atheism”, are most of the modern “churches” and their pernicious and often predatory practices and dogmas. To have a religion is not the threat. To define one’s own life by reference to one or more religions is similar, no threat. The problem lies in the excuses to do ill towards others of differing beliefs, by falling back onto their own religions is the key problem. However, that is not a fault of Nature. The blame lies squarely with those who exert control over their congregations, and the individual participants in the congregations themselves. One CAN be spiritual, without being associated with any of the known, established religions. I suppose that a “virtual existence” would be posited as the answer to this age-old problem? After all, machines have no need for a religion, right? Therefore, such an extensive virtual reality would also have no need (and no place) for any religion or spiritual expression? Now what would this reduce man to: A mere collection of bits, bytes, and patterns of digital data that need a means to travel from location to location?

Then, we have the question of what parts of the “Human Reality” could be successfully and faithfully reproduced?

We often take for granted, the various stimuli and interactions we have with the world around us. One of those, is the ability of sight. If one has never experienced blindness, or any severe impairment of vision, how does one come to appreciate the things he/she sees (or should see) every day? We may wonder what a blind person “sees” or what one could perceive of the world around him/her when clearly, eyesight is not a luxury, nor ability, available to him/her. Obviously, someone like Helen Keller still had the ability to “see” the beauty of the world around her. Whether it from some hidden sense of “sight”, or some other form of knowing, she still became a very wise and appreciative lady, in spite of her lifelong “disability”. The creative abilities of the mind can never truly be underestimated.

We oftentimes do not consider how important our sense of hearing is to us. One who is deaf, or even has severe enough hearing difficulty, may still be able to experience some aspect of life is if he/she still had some ability to “hear”. We all have our favorite songs and music, and even our particular haunts and hangouts where the “ambience” or “atmosphere” includes certain particular sounds and qualities of sounds we may find most appealing. Many of our choice melodies and tunes even invoke memories of things we experienced when we last heard those particular songs. Some of the sounds in our environment may evoke certain emotions and feelings. Can we truly say we have a healthy appreciation for these things, by taking the fact of our ability to hear them, for granted? Would our not ever being able to hear things around us impact what and how think about our world?

We also have our ability to taste that which we consume, and savor every bite – if we so choose to. Many of our world’s finest old-time cooking, and the various cultures that produced those varieties of flavors, have much meaning, on a personal level, to us. I have always found that the wonderful smells of good cooking, had me anticipating the flavors I was about to experience at the table. These wonderful experiences in the culinary art, and in the presentation of these fines, homemade dishes was also what made life worth living for. I have known a few friends who had lost their senses of taste (and sometimes, sense of smell too) due to accident(s) and/or the resulting permanent injury(ies). For one to lose his sense of taste, after growing up most of his life being to savor all kinds and qualities of flavors, all to suddenly lose that ability, must indeed feel that his life has changed dramatically. When we were children, “taste” was one of the sensory means of exploring our world.

Being able to touch and feel textures, reliefs, and various surfaces (and other stimuli, even the incidental [like bug-bites, etc.]) is a very important part of our interactions with the world. Our existence relies very heavily, and is often greatly enriched, by our tactile sensitivity, and the ability to recognize and appreciate this physical sense. We also commonly communicate through touching, hand-shaking, “atta-boy” pats on the back, and even the caressing and “petting” of our dearest loved one(s). The sense of touch is a very personal and inter-personal sensation to us. We may even feel the desire to “feel” the rough bark on a tree, the gravel or sand beneath our feet when we walk, or even enjoy the gentle currents of water in a nearby creek or stream. Our tactile exploration of life in our world does not seem to end, until the day we leave this world. We constantly explore for new sensations, and reunite with the old familiar ones. What would life be like, without being able to actually feel and touch things and other people around us? Would we still be having the fullest of that “Human Experience”?

One thing I enjoy most of all about the season of Spring: The wonderful smells of sweetness of the first flowers! It is one of the biggest reasons why I love the Spring. The smell of the Earth awakening from its long, Wintery slumber, is a reminder of changes, and how Nature constantly reinvents herself, every year. The enjoyment of the olfactory experiences is also one of the reason I love being in a forest of Pines, Spruces, and various other odiferous and aromatic trees and herbs. I love the smell of Pine and Cedar! As such, the world filled with all sorts of smells, is often the first indication for the new day. Here where I live, it is semi-arid conditions, and has plentiful Sagebrush on the plains. Every Fall, when it is late enough for some frost, after a good nighttime rainfall, I can usually smell the fresh scent of Sagebrush in the cool air in the mornings. This always reminded me of that particular time of year (and that I was back in school for another long nine months). To this day, I have long since moved back to this area, and still enjoy the smells of Spring, and Sagebrush smell of the Fall – especially after a night of cooling rains has soaked the ground. What would such a life be like, not ever having to experience the various smells around me, or having the ability gone – after experiencing for a number of years already?

Then, there is the aspect of Extra-Sensory-Perception (for those who acknowledge and/or believe such is possible) or E.S.P. This is a natural ability that ALL living creatures (even plants and microbes) seem to demonstrate. It is amazing what some creatures do as a reaction to some unseen activity, or in response to some otherwise-unknown event or happening. Some of your modern-day psychics (the REAL ones, not all those charlatans who claim to be psychic) and empaths exhibit and/or acknowledge these abilities. Some would say that being devoid of E.S.P. abilities leaves one lacking in experiencing the world hidden from “plain view”. Though today’s “science” refuses to even entertain any discussion, let alone true meaningful, un-biased research into it, there are still many unanswered questions about E.S.P. Interesting that Quantum Physics, Entanglement Theory, and the various related disciplines of science, have been summarily ignored by the “mains” of academia. Even though the Quantum Sciences have been around and discussed and explored for many years, there is hardly any main-stream discussion about them today. Yet, the Quantum Sciences appear to more strongly support the idea of the old adage: “Mind over Matter”, where our very thoughts can also influence surrounding events, as well as be highly receptive to them, even as very subtle events. Would such ever really be possible in a “virtual reality”?

So, as we can see, through the lens of commonsense,

Our basic “senses” of the physical (and perhaps, “aphysical”) nature are very important to us. Not only are there survival needs for them, but also these senses are how we best interact with the world around us. When we are impaired in one or more of the senses, especially when we experienced part of life through them beforehand, we can, for a time, feel as though we “lost” a connection to this existence, and perhaps even lost an ability to further explore our world. Our sense are a very important part of our personal development, and even as part of our spiritual practices (for those who do have spiritual practices, anyway). We highly value our five (or “six”) senses, view them as divine gifts (or at least – important abilities) in which are able to experience our world, and perceive our world. These senses are an extension of our inner Being, and are how we relate to the outside world. Without them, our lives would probably be very different than from what we currently perceive. We base our views, perceptions, and values on the various experiences we have, especially as relating to what have experienced through the senses. Take these away, and you will most likely take away the most important parts of what it means to have a “Human Experience”, and what it means to be alive!

Now, back to the lunacy of “Man vs. Nature”:

It makes no sense that the created, can ever surmount and defeat its creator!

The ostentatious idea that a few “educated” folks (who often call themselves “scientists” and “experts”) calling themselves superior to Nature, is a very dangerous and fatalist position. It is when folks like them, have the temerity to call themselves as better than anything natural or nature, on the mere premise that “science” has ALL THE ANSWERS, and that our “primitive” ancestors new virtually nothing in comparison, who apparently live a life of extreme hubris. It is also telling how science has been simply turned into a tool for exerting more political power, and as a means to put to rest any competing thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and theories, all under the guise of “expert opinion”. Expert Opinion does NOT, I repeat does NOT create scientific laws  nor supercede already-existing natural laws! Mere opinion, regardless of the credentials behind it, is STILL subject opinion without the basis or weight of evidence or fact. Yet, this is what is being used to rule over all of us. The nest step in the amalgamation of all that political power, namely – the ability to control every aspect of our state of being – TRANS-HUMANISM, and the intense effort to build in systems and architectures, in which to reduce and store the sum quantity of mankind, and man’s totality to mere bits and bytes of compuetrized, digitized data.

As I explained a bit in my previous segment of this article series:

Simply digitizing, that is – converting from the natural form and expression – into a series of one’s and zero’s that make up the digital data stream, something as basic as a picture, represents a conversion process that introduces losses of quality and resolution, through the introduction of errors, that vastly separates the digital “copy” from the original. The digital copy becomes flawed, especially over several generational copies, to the point that it simply CAN NOT faithfully and accurately reproduce an excat copy of the original. This is the nature and the limits of the technology. Life, Experiences, and all other aspects that are a part of what we call “Life” (or even existence) can NOT be simply “copied” through artificial means. These aspects can barely even be remotely copied through the prevailing natural means, let alone through arrtifical, technological means. So HOW does one reproduce the original human being, complete with an exact copy of his experiences, likes, dislikes, memories, etc. if we STILL can not accurately (and exactly) reproduce a mere picture of the real thing, from a digital copy?

Then, the long list of how “the smart men” were so much better than nature and natural, and the disasters and still painful messes that have resulted today – all from that way of thinking:

  1. Modern medicine, with all of its nuanced and ever-evolving “drugs” (allopathy) and how many annual deaths result in these united states of America – all from taking, by instruction, prescribed “medications”. Mankind has been served well, for many thousands of years, by what could be found in nature. Even many of the ancient religious and spiritual texts described the many benefits and “miracles” of the various plants and animals that man can use. For many thousands of years, Naturopathy and Herbalism has maintained entire populations and cultures. Yet, there is no “profit motive” to actually curing and healing the people of various diseases and illnesses, with today’s “modern medicine”.
  2. Modern forest and land management practices – How we used to extinguish EVERY naturally-caused fire that were once cyclical and normal – to the point that now the forests have much over-growth to the point of creating a huge, dangerous tinderbox. Resulting in hotter-burning fires (often in excess of 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit) and far more devastation. We also have many invasive weeds, of exotic origin, that were once used to replant burned out grassland areas. Most of these exotic weeds are very aggressive, very hardy, and quite toxic to most of the native wildlife – AND – often contribute to even more-hazardous fire conditions!
  3. Modern Wildlife management practices – Where we now have a serious problem of (re)determining the proper population balance of predator-to-prey animals, include for man’s needs (hunting, food, etc.) – as well as through the questionable introduction of exotic species into the natural ecosystem – without determining first, what other effects this introduction may have there.
  4. Weather Manipulation/Modification Projects – This is by no means absolutely incredible and incredibly dangerous! There is absolutely no reason to ever tamper with the weather and/or climatic patterns, especially by aerially-depositing noxious substances which will eventually end up in the soils, waters, and breathable air shared by ALL living things within a given region/area/etc. This is just absolute pseudo-science hubris at work!
  5. Our Food and Modern Nutrition – Has been under attack and subvert for the sake of profit for many years now. The “Genetic Engineers” seek this path of “improvement” of our many crops for food, foodstuffs, clothing, and basic essentials. Yet, Nature had everything we needed – to include healthy soils. This proliferation of GMOs (Genetically-Modified-Organisms) represents a severe threat to the natural selection of native species, and therefore – the very survival of many species of other plant and animal life on this planet. The degradation and destruction of many colonies of Honeybees is a significant threat to the survival and well-being of ALL of us, all from these GMOs and the various chemical poisons used on and around them. Not to also mention, that these GMOs are all “Intellectual Property” under the current laws! HOW DOES ONE DECLARE “OWNERSHIP” OF AN ENTIRE SPECIES???

So, by just illustrating the previous few example areas where supposed “science” is suposed to answer for the claimed “failings of Nature”,

It comes as no surprise that control, greed, hubris, and various other self-destructive, self-centered mindsets are what bring about this egotistical thinking that a few “smart men” can “change the world for the better” by claiming that they, and their knowledge, are superior to that which created and maintain this existence – and all the beings within it – for perhaps, billions of years. What’s more, every instance that establishment “science” has been used to further incur into Nature and Nature’s God’s realm and powers, are each and every instance that disaster very soon followed. So WHY should I trust anything coming from their lips, and the salemanship of the Trans-Humanism Movement when they say: “This will be the evolution man” – when in reality, I see it more as a destruction of humanity, and destruction of all what it means to be human??? If we can not even simulate, let alone reproduce the ability of our senses, both physical and aphysical, to act and respond in the very same way that our bodies and souls do so, naturally, then HOW can we support pushing man into the merger with machine, or even towards this “singularity” that was never meant to be?

When a few men decide the course of human evolution, or for that fact – taking over ANY act of evolution for anyone, including other animal and plant life, is the day that all Nature, and everything within it, are in serious jeopardy – and these few “scientists” and their enablers need to be shunned and fully divested from any source of public trust, profit, and away from any ability at political influence! This is a must do! If we are to continue onward, and evolve NATURALLY, as our gods intended, then it is time we throw off of this scientific tyranny for once and for all. These so-called experts, are merely either paid “mouth-pieces”, or they really are in the position of setting the course of social policy, and in the effect – setting the course of evolution – to THEIR (ignorant) specifications. Let’s do this right. Throw off Trans-Humanism. Throw off GMO’s and all the attendent uses of all those poisons. Throw off the tyranny of weather control/manipulation and the resulting tight controls on our critically-needed Natural resources.

The “Singularity” is NOT our friend!

“Manifestation” and Free-Will, The Fact of Reality.


I thought this would be a subject that needed to be aired out a little.

I have heard time and again this constant meme that has become so common with much of the New-Age movement: “Everything that happens to you, is because you manifested it upon yourself.” – This was what one individual said to me, out in the plain, open air, in referring to some troubles that a dear friend of mine has been having with some very problematic (and very dangerous) people. I was absolutely astonished at how dismissive he was when making this very broad, judgmental statement!

So,

If I am going to attempt to bring sound logic and reason to the discussion table, I guess I am going to have to do so here, without constant, argumentative interruptions.

I am all too familiar with the various trials and mishaps that may happen in life, from time to time. We all have our various troubles, heartaches, and “hard times” as we try our best to live our lives in the best fashion possible. We also have our “enemies” who wish nothing more than ill intent upon us, and even seek to undermine that we wish to achieve through the various means and methods they may concoct. That is what is expected when we are talking about everyone having a certain amount of free will.

A friend of mine has had much trouble brought to him, by those who seek ill towards him. Many legal remedies have been tried and failed miserably. We have both come to learn, all too well, that our trusted system of “checks and balances” is very broken and corrupted (if we wish to think of it this way). It seems to serve more of those it “favors”, as opposed to assisting and protecting the rights of those who fall outside of its “circle of friends”. He has tried and tried to get relief from the constant harassment, threatening, sabotage, and absolute skull-duggery against him – so that he can go on with his life, and try to become productive again. I can say this for the very basic fact that I have personally seen some of the awful behaviors and actions done, by some of the very same folks who have no accountability for their actions. – Yet, to some – this is just fantasy and “paranoia” on his part!

The point to start off with,

Yes, there ARE very evil and vindictive people in this world! Tere ARE people who seem to take great joy in the suffering of others, especially when that suffering is caused by their own hands! There ARE people in this world who would go to great lengths to ensure and continue inflicting suffering, pain, anguish, and mendacity upon others whom they have targeted! – THIS IS REALITY, FOLKS! There ARE such people in this world who so narcissistic as to try to ingratiate themselves with the pasttime of hurting others relentlessly, and expect to get away with all of it! – So WHO, in their right mind, would wish this upon themselves as the receiving victims of such constant and continuous treatment at the hands of others??? WHO actually chooses to endure such constant suffering through harassment, hazing, threatening behaviors, etc.??? – Come on, some of you supposed Buddhists, Hindus, and other “devout” religionists of other “faiths”, religions, or whatever have you! Just answer me: “WHO would actually “choose” to live such a life as put upon by others of ill-intent???”

Let me explain as I did not intend to go after all Buddhists, Hindus, and other faiths and practitioners.

My “fire” was intended toward those who choose to use their religious faith, convictions, etc. as a lazy excuse for condoning and even giving a pass to those who engage in such evil acts, while condemning the victims of such acts who have full right of recourse to remedy. Of course it is so easier to downplay the plight of the unwilling victim, than it is to actually come to terms that there are such evil people who need to be dealt with, in accord to the social customs and traditions of that society. Most of the absolutisms of the “live and let live” hive-mind thinking are more a nuance of the last two centuries, than they are of the ancient wisdoms. Most of the modern New-Age culture has blindly adopted these tenets as IF they were the “law of the land”, when such is NOT the case. They preach “respect free will” to the extreme that they often ignore the fact that the receiving victims ALSO have the right to exercise free will, even for their own genuine self-preservation! The “turn the other cheek” proverb still has limits to its applicability and timing. Self-defense is still just as valid now, as it was before the creation of the establishment “church” and its “rules” and doctrines!

If we were all able to “manifest” purely by dreaming, thinking, and visualizing it, without actually doing anything else, then what point would there be in all of us having to experience this level of reality. Why are we not, then, able to just “dematerialize” out of this existence, instantly, and become gods??? – Again, if our own mind-power was all that was needed to completely control our reality, then WHY should we be HERE, on this little Earth, a miniscule particle floating somewhere in a huge universal-sized “sea” of unknowns, instead of actually being god-like and omniscient as such we accredit the gods of old being???

What many blind followers of the “Abrahamic Laws of Attraction” fail to see,

Is that many of the events and happenings around us, are NOT purely centered around US. Just as an individual may have the ambition to become wealthy, through his own efforts and labor, there are many others around him who would probably rather see him fail and become destitute. If his efforts are outmatched by the efforts of a plurality of others in opposition to his goals, he stands very little chance of success, until he is able to extricate himself from that environment, and into one more conducive this success. When such a predatory system is widespread, as in a governing system over the whole area or region, then his chances of success may be further limited or restrained. I tried to communicate this effect, and examples thereof, to several folks I knew. We do NOT always get what we want, no matter how hard we put our effort into it. This is a fact of life, NOT because he/she was not being “positive enough” in his/her thinking!

Whereas there are some things the individual may have some measure of control over. There are plenty of other things, events, and such that will take the combined efforts and contributions of multiple people to affect a desired result. It should already be well known in Wiccan circles, for example, that the more people who contribute their personal energies and focus towards a specific goal, the more likely that goal will materialize into an expected result. This goes right to the heart of “manifestation”. Some things can be accomplished (through corresponding action, of course) by the individual, and others need a little more help from multiple sympathetic minds. If it turns out to be one individual versus a crowd of opposers, the individual is most likely not going to prevail over that situation. That, again, is a FACT of life.

Then, We have the other question: “What about Free Will?”

Let’s see, the usual suspect when it comes to various kinds and instances of social injustices, is when those who choose to exercise their own free will to promote and even have an active hand in the committing of social injustices, is one prime example. The other, is in the “silent deniers” of these social injustices, down to the individual level, all on account of their religious and social “engineering” of the common memes of blaming the victim for his or her own sorry treatment by others. Thus, many of these so-called “spiritual” types who define these injustices as “self-manifested” have NO CLUE about the reality of Free Will and how social and personal injustices often remain uncorrected. “Visualization” is only a PART of the process of manifesting good, or bad things to happen. Another important (and often overlooked) part is ACTION. It takes ACTION to build a home. It takes ACTION to put a business into operation. It takes ACTION to materialize a work of art. It takes ACTION to do ill towards others. It takes ACTION to correct and provide relief from the ill-intentioned actions of others. It takes ACTION to implement the causes for the good, in the face of resistance and the il intent of others. It takes ACTION to begin and complete the process of manifestation. ALL magic workers should know this! – To Know (Visualize), To Will(Actually do it), To Dare(Finish the actual “doing” and send it on its way), and to “Be Silent” (let your efforts, all of them) come to fruition, and then realize the results. The Will to ACTION is an effort of Free Will.

Then we come to the conundrum of “Free Will”, and its place in our societies, along with where its limits should be respected.

This brings me a reminder of a saying one wise man once wrote:

” Your rights begin within you, and end where they touch against the rights of another. ” – This was to be understood much in the same fashion as how we view our “personal space”, where our personal space extends to as far as we can physically reach, without stepping within, uninvited – of course, the personal space of another. Very basic and very understandable, from a commonsense-point-of-view. If we were to be able to just “manifest” with only our own mindpower, all those things we wanted, regardless if they were to impinge upon another or not, would we not be violating the free will of the other? Would that not make us as unethical as the unwilling victim of our actions or “manifestations” think of us? Would this not create an “imbalance” in Nature and our Universe? – I seriously think so.

This is one of the reasons why we need to think of “opportunity costs” of our actions and desires. Everything, in Nature, the Universe, and in existence – en-total, has a potiental cost. Something needs to be taken out, for something else that is made from it, survive, and/or something new created from it. When something is just destroyed, killed, or in any other fashion brought to ruination without the purpose of rededicating it, or utilizing it to build or otherwise use for a creative purpose, is called waste! The general character and operation of the processes of Nature do not include wasting anything. Everything has its purpose, and everything – its time. Anything other, is waste and Nature wastes not, because there is a balance that must be maintained.

What seems to escape the minds of most of today’s “scientists” and anthropologists, especially those with similar thinking to that of Dr. Stephen Hawking:

The existence of “Free Will” as being a very natural occurrence, and not necessarily defined nor limited to the mere happenstance of “chemistry” in the brain.

This line of reasoning (oh REALLY?!?!? – Is THAT what they call it???) reflects the very base attitude that we, as a living being, amount to nothing more than a “bag of chemicals” and the resultant reactions between and among those chemicals. When we get into the habit of reducing the whole of life and living to as being “mechanical” and “predictable” upon the limiting premise that chemistry dictates all of our actions, thoughts, dreams, feelings, and various other intangible aspects of what we call “life”, then we also reduce who we look at life in terms of the natural tapestry. We reduce, down to the lowest denominator, the basic origins of creativity, dreaming, feeling, and expressing or otherwise reacting to certain situations and stimuli. We reduce the meaning of life to those narrowly-defined terms. This also negates any aspect or possibility that we find out new things and new experiences in the natural world around us. Thus, by saying the “collection of chemicals” and their resultant reactions being limited and finite, they are saying that human potential is just as limited and finite. Human creativity and thought, by nature, have the tendency to express themselves far outside of the societally-imposed limits and “standards”. THIS, is what many in the arena of political control, feel the need to set limits upon, and control through their systematic grid of command and control.

This train of thinking also seeks to minimize the idea of “individuality”, and what it means to be a unique individual. Most of the thinkers of this category truly believe we are all the same! It is not much different from their thoughts about other animal (and possibly plant, etc) species: They are regarded as being exactly them same also, regardless of the apparent individuality expressed by each member. This fits well into the societal image of everyone being exactly equal, with no characteristics to differentiate each individual. This is very wrong-headed thinking, and culturally repulsive to those who are supportive of recognizing individuals by their own unique worth, and their own efforts.

“Free Will” represents the boundless possibilities that can be achieved by those who express their creative, imaginative powers. It asserts its power, from the unleashed mind, to a vast array of decisions and actions, as part of the natural occurrence of life. Human beings are not the only species to evidence the existence of Free Will, but also other creatures. Free will also is well-expressed in various problem-solving methodologies. Even without the basis of a “formal education” (which oftentimes, a society sets strict limits on what is to be learned and how it is to be applied), the ability to solve problems, both small and larger, the more complex, is as natural a function as breathing, but is also a very conscious effort. Conditioned-response training and indoctrination” serves more to condition the individual to limit his/her thinking to within “acceptible norms” as in accord to “societal values and standards”. This conditioning is usually about combatting and minimalizing the expression of free will and any independent thought.

If there was no such thing as “free will”, and we were all to be exactly the same,

Then WHO would have invented the telephone? WHO would have made the observation that “gravity” exists and is present? WHO would have taken on the establishment church on its standing that the Earth was “flat” and not spherical? WHO would have observed and then recorded that the Earth was NOT the center of the Universe, but orbited around the Sun. So many examples to show that we are NOT all exactly the same. We may all look similar, but similarities are not as “sameness”. Our expressions inspired by the FACT of free will, alone, prove this. There is no need for arbitrary “scientific” validation and “peer-review” for what is already observable by everyone.

Finally,

The great disgrace that was meted out to the human societies by the establishment, imperialistic churches, was that it was a “sin”, an “imperfection” that was built into us, by God. This makes absolutely no sense if said creator God was “Perfect”, and had reason to gift Free Will to each and every one of us! What’s more, if free will was a “gift from God”, then WHY did many of these church organizations seek to eliminate free will, and the cherishing of it, through their sermons? Also, why did the church canons seem so heavy on scaring the congregations into marching in lock-step with the dictates of the church clergies, in complete and total violation of “God’s Law”, as represented in their doctrines and texts? If Free Will was a divine gift from God, then depriving God’s Children (us uncluded) should similarly be viewed as a violation of God’s Law (by THEIR “bibles”). I seriously believe many “priests”, “deacons”, and such should revisit their teachings and find the inconsistencies in their own practices. Some of the greatest works of art, architecture, and music (which many churches have endorsed and/or benefited from) came about from someone’s free will to create and share their creative works (or even have commissioned). The “church” has benefited from the free will of many others, to include from “donations” and contributions made freely, by those expressing their free will in the giving.

So, I hope this little post (“Little”? Really???) has helped to set some things straight. I sat on this article as a “draft” for quite a while, until such time was right for finishing it, and getting this off of my chest. Free Will plays a very important role in manifesting anything. The Laws of Attraction are only partially correct the way they are interpreted and applied. In order for creativity to exist and grow, is through the existence and practice of Free Will. The Will of one, will usually be out-weighed by the opposing Will of multiple others. If “Bad Things” happen to someone, and they do not result from the actions self-inflicted, they are usually from someone else who does not respect the one’s free will. There IS such thing as “evil”, and there ARE, in fact, evil people in this world!

I’m Sorry but, Natural is Beautiful! Nature Rules. – Part 4


Continuing on this mini-series of articles:


 It has been a while since I last wrote anything along the lines of this mini-series.

Therefore,

Perhaps it is time to visit this subject area some more? Here it is, about a year or so since my last posting to this series, and the crescendo and “chorus calls” for further merging “man with machine” grows ever louder still. It is almost as if a cult following is brewing around the technocratic world to push the limits of reality (our rather limited view of, anyway) into the “outer limits” of human experience. Is it truly possible to completely digitize, and then reproduce from the digital recording, all of a being’s total experiences; feelings; perceptions; and the totality of “being Alive” into a true, complete reproduction of the original being’s state of Life? As some of the more technically-savvy folks may know as common fact, digitizing the analog of video, audio, and even still portraits, results in a loss of clarity, resolution, and various other little bits of data and information that completely describe and “bring to life” the aspects of the original. When trying to convert the digitized copy back towards its original state, these losses can vary from the imperceptible (to the human senses, anyway) to the very great. There is still a “lossy” component to all of this conversion and duplication, when using any form of artificial means to accomplish this task. In essence, “perfection” is, itself, lost in the conversion process. The “copy” MAY resemble the original, but it is still far less a “perfect copy”.

Another depth to approach this subject and the problem of “Nature-to-Machine” transference and ‘hybridization’ (there is no breeding aspect at play here), is that technology can, at best, simulate a reality, rather than create a reality the way Nature has done. When we make a digital conversion and/or copy, our copy becomes more the approximated “simulation” of the real original. To simulate, is to “pretend” it is as the “real McCoy”, and sometimes treat it is real, though it is only simulated. Any artificial machine, even be it the most powerful super-computing systems in the world, is vastly limited in its abilities to render a “reality” in anything close to how Nature creates and renders a reality! The human brain alone, is still one of the most complex computing machines without equal! The human brain computes at far greater depths and resolutions than any computer ever could. This is because the human brain, or any living brain for that matter, is not limited to a basic set of calculations, algorithms, “tables”, or any other simulated process of events and sequences. It is not limited to a specific, identifiable, “standardized” number set or instruction set. Therefore, the brain can truly reproduce certain experiences and images far closer to the quality of the original experiences and images that were first introduced to it. Sure, the “resolution” of the reproductions may suffer somewhat, all because we rely very much on a linear spoken and written language, and/or our ability to reproduce such on a canvas. Nonetheless, those things experienced within the mind, and housed in the brain, are experiences that become a part of our lives. This is as Nature intended, for mankind, animalkind, and plantkind. It is thought that some protozoa and smaller life forms could also have a certain “memory” and experiences too.

Another area I would like to speak about:

The merging of man to machine.

How do we really reconcile the differences between that which is natural, with that which is artificial? When we talk about artificial or “manufactured” (presumably from an automated assembly line process) as opposed to “natural”, what often gets very little discussion in those kinds of exchanges; The element of “sameness”, as opposed to “uniqueness”. When something is mass-manufactured, virtually every product from that process is going to be very much the same (except for the occasional inconsistency, and the ever-so-slight imperfections in material, etc.). Still, the sameness of the end product is unmistakeable. Nature, on the other hand, creates “similarities”, but each and every individual still has a certain amount of recognizable “uniqueness”, especially evident in certain physical and habitual traits. Not every dog will behave the same way, to the same stimulus, in the same environment, at the very same time. Each and every dog has a certain individuality, based on its own life’s experiences, the environment it was reared in, and the associations with others (who themselves, were individuals). This is often reflected in certain behavioral traits and mannerisms, even to the slightest degree. Not every horse will behave exactly as the next horse, and so on, and so on, and so on. Each and every horse, is a unique individual. The same could be said of every single species we have been able to identify, and ascertain its general, similar behavioral habits, and be able to observe occasional variations by individuals. Nature, is about uniqueness, and also perfects the ability of these unique individuals to still play an active part of the “Natural Tapestry of Life and Existence” and thrive.

Anyway,

Whereas there may be ways to merge the physical differences between Carbon-based systems (like us, and all Natural Life around us) and Silicon-Germanium-Osmium-(and whatever other metallic materials)-based systems in ordered to conjoin them together as a singular system “unit”, there is still much to be explained about the differences in the intangible aspects, and how to ably merge them into a compatible union. If it took many, many years of figuring out how to merge the physical aspects, and with multiple billions-of-dollars-worth of technology invested in that pursuit, then HOW much more time would be needed to research the basis of personality, experience, memory, and all the other “intangibles” relating to life, and how to make the technological equivalents to them compatible enough to safely merge them together? (I know! A very long-winded question, but one that should be asked.)

Has any one of these scientists, innovators, technicians, technologists, etc. ever thought to ask such a thought-provoking question as this one? Has anyone ever seriously thought that there is certainly MORE to being Human, and even being Alive, than just the mere physical presence? Some “scientists” think that our physical presence, and its attendant collection of chemicals – reacting in such patterns – are what define us in the totality. At least, the Stephen Hawkings’ of the world believe so. What about how it is that we each of us have individual experiences, that are very often quite different from those of others around us? What about the fact that even identical twins (or identical “siblings”), even when reared in the same home, fed the same foods, and treated the very same fashion, can STILL express a certain amount of individual uniqueness – in spite of the “sameness” of the childhood upbringing?!?!? – The Hawkings’, Freuds’, and others of like mindset, simply can not honestly ponder an honest answer to that question, without defaulting to the establishment-acceptable type of answer that it is “all chemical”, and that our feelings, emotional states, memories, and even particular likes and dislikes are all governed by chemistry. So this is what many in the “Trans-Humanism” crowd think is what makes us all “biologically suitable” for the great “singularity” of man-and-machine.

Nature, on the other hand, does not think so!

Another aspect of these differences between Nature and technology:

The method by which duplication is accomplished, and to what effect or result.

Technological means of duplication (or “reproduction”) must rely on creating (near) exact copies of the original. These copies must, necessarily, be “translatable” to the form recognizable by the technology in order for it to work with the data in question. This means that the original “data” needs to be “simulated” by being “digitized”, and resulting in a loss of quality and resolution, in order for a “copy” to made from it. So, we are simply making “lossy” copies of a “lossy” copy of the original. Usually, a duplication is expected to be AS GOOD AS or perhaps (in the Natural way) something of an improvement from the original (like something akin to an evolutionary change, by expression of the more-suitable genetic traits for enhanced survival of the individual). A technological answer to the degradation of quality of the copies is usually by “approximating” the missing values by some means of calculations and “assumptions” on what needs to “fill in the blanks”! These missing pieces may be entirely different values, than from what is “assumed” to be suitable to fill in this blank spaces. These assumed values may even introduce more “errors” into the copies.

Now, what often happens when copies of copies of copies, for several “generations”, keep accumulating more of these “statistical errors” with each and every duplication? Eventually, you have a completely unworkable, unusable, and perhaps even unidentifiable copy that looks very little like the original. What means and ways are there to actually correct and compensate for the accumulation of these calculated statistical errors, from several generation-copies, especially when the stable original is no longer available? Nature’s answer was in the Mitochondrial DNA (some think of as the “genetic library or – parts-box -” for use in repairing damaged DNA). Nature has so many layers of redundancies and “checks-and-balances” built right into the bodies, down to the cellular level, to maximize the survivability of the individual and his/her species. The technological “solution” has still YET to maximize its abilities to redundantly protect, from losses, its data from failing, and eventually – being totally lost. Some would say that “Life” is fragile, but the technological “solution” is easily far more fragile and corruptible in the nature of its very existence, and how it implements its “solutions”. Even one slight miscalculation or inaccurate assumption of a value, can greatly increase the risk of errors, or even eventual total loss, let alone usability of the data and/or product.

The act of Creation as opposed to Simulation and Rendering:

Creation is purely a mental activity that requires actual thinking, to which machines’ abilities at thinking still lag far behind the ability of a living brain’s.

A good question to ask one of these technologists: “Can a machine truly be as creative as a living brain?”

To that, I answer “No”, and I will explain why.

A machine is severely restricted in its ability to “think”. What is considered “thinking”, in a machine’s terms, is in reality, a series of calculations based on a set of instructions that the machine is given. The instructions are coded according to a set of “programming rules”, as dictated in the specifications of the programming language that was used to code those instructions. There is very little room for “randomness” and incidentals, because machines (computers, in the specific) expect and REQUIRE a specific structure and organization of instructions and data, and a specific sequence in which to execute those instructions upon that data. The first “law” of programming I learned many years ago: “G.I.G.O.”, which stood for: “Garbage In, Garbage Out.” In other words, if a specific “program” (a set of instructions to perform a specific task or set of tasks) is improperly “coded”, and/or its containing instructions are out of proper sequence, your program may yield incorrect/inaccurate results, or not function at all. A computer knows very little about “fudging” results and or remediating an issue without the proper set of instructions to handle those “unusual” situations or conditions. Thus, a computer, as an artificial “brain”, becomes useless for performing the task as desired, until the program code is reworked, and its instructions coded to execute in a proper sequence. The “sequence” of instructions is also called its “program flow”, or “execution flow”. One diagrams this on a “flow chart”.

To a computer, each and every instruction must be exact and accurate, down to the smallest step, in what is to happen next. Therefore, computers (and other machines) are very literal and exact. A machine can not make a “guess” without being told EXACTLY how to guess and when to guess and what to guess. It is all based on multiple steps of mathematical calculations and “decision-making” (that is, in “if’s”, “and’s”, “or’s”, “then’s”, “when’s”, “else’s”, etc. . .) tests of various results, etc. The limits of the types of results, to tests for in these “decision-loops” must be built into the program’s code. They are static until they are changed by the programmer, and then recompiled and deployed to the computer. There are definite limits inherent to nature of computing. Because of these limits by construction, a computer’s ability to “think” is very limited, very literal, and very precise in its effects and doings. It simply can NOT “think on its own”. It needs to be “told” how to think, what to think, when (if applicable) to think, and to what depth it needs to “think” the expectable solution to be. Creativity requires a lot of thinking and the resultant “decision-making” throughout the entire creative process, even though much of this thinking and decision-making is not so obvious to the creator.

If we are talking about rendering the essence of a human being’s life into digital form, we stand a great chance of losing some of the most important characteristics of what it is to be “human”, to include the genuine ability to create. This is the nature of “digitizing” a copy of anything from an actual existing thing: We WILL LOSE quality and resolution along the conversion process; enough to lose some of the most important aspects of the individuality of that actual thing. Is THIS really such an “improvement” over Nature, especially when we chance to lose some detail that was originally there in the natural form? So, at best, a machine – even as advanced in technology as a computer – is only capable of simulating and/or rendering a simulated copy of the real thing, but not actually creating from itself.

Next: Part 5 – How “Being Human” really matters, and trans-humanism’s ideologies conflict with the concept of being a Natural Human. (Supremacy-over-Nature lunacy.)
