1076  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / A vivid, allegorical dream that I recently had on: July 04, 2011, 00:39:33
I generally have very vivid dreams, and can recall almost all of them.

I had another dream with a strong narrative to it last night, that was sort of interesting.

When the dream started, I was building a house entirely out of gypsum-board (stuff that goes behind paint but in front of insulation in walls). I went to take a nap in the dream, and when I woke up, there were two people sleeping in two separate rooms of my constucted home; they both had a handgun with them. I tip-toed into the first room, and silently picked up the revolver the sleeping woman had beside her bedside; I then took the revolver, and walked into the other room, where the man was now awake, and I disarmed him at gun-point. He gave up a glock-looking pistol, which I also pocketed. Then for some bizzare reason I walked away, and left them alone, lol. I procured a cell-phone, and called "911", to ask for the police.

The phone dispatcher asked for the address, and I said it was at the corner of "Rues and Stiles Street". The dispatcher said he didn't know where that was, and that he couldn't help me. I said that should not be an issue, as he had his computer system to search; he said it did not work that way. I said that was alright, and started listing other adjacent streets, and alternative ways to get there. He kept saying that I should hang up, and that he couldn't help people like me. As he said this, I saw the two people from before through a window, walking into my house, and carrying computer equipment and other items out, lol; the man was also re-armed with another pistol. I told the operator that I phsyically saw people committing violent theft in front of me, and he said it was not their problem, haha. I continued to look for ways to get him to help, trying different arguements, as I saw them emptying my house of all its contents one by one, lol. The dispatcher began to get surly, and said that other people's problems were not his concern, and that the 911 service was only for people whom it was meant to serve. The couple then came in, and shot me 7 times; the dispatcher told me not to call ever again, and then I died, and woke up.

---------------------

If I had to interpret the dream, based on the emotions it generated at the time, I think it has something to do with thinking society is not meeting my needs, and that it is not for "people like me"; I think there is probably an air of truth in that, is I generally seem to take a view that our social structure is dominated by people with interests alien to mine, with political agendas and coporate controlling interests making all the decisions and holding all the power. I think the dream was reflective of my belief that our system victimizes the masses in favor of a few people who receive all the benefit.

Indeed. They are a tool, but cannot take away the total effort.

OBE is very much something you have to feel out for yourself, not something that can be thrust upon you or induced by tools or devices in wide circulation ( it is debatable whether tools potentially having this capability have been made in lab settings).
1078  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: For those using binarual beats...Do on: July 02, 2011, 07:24:12
Lol...

The way this topic was worded... I thought you were commanding people who use these... to continue, lol.

This is a bit of a vague answer, but if I recall, I think there is a version of the brain-wave-generator player-dealy availible for free, and the community associated with the program has produced all sorts of tracks designed to produce various effects. I would be wary of people claiming a certain track to do this or that, as creating effective tracks is very much an empirical art, only advancing through numbers of testers interacting, and on top of this, specific to the individual experiencing it.

There are general guidelines as to what would produce a vibrational state, such as providing a track which comes gradually in cycles from Beta to delta (4 Hz or so), but beyond that, all conjecture, I would imagine.

I appreciate the structure of your responses... you show a dedicated disregard for conventional syntax, and your ideas are expressed in a more fragmented and experential-based stream... in some ways closer to the way we live reality than in the way we typically express it to others.

I must say that it is somewhat difficult for me to establish with certainty sometimes what precisely you intend though... the full meaning of the posts can only be extracted by taking them as wholes, since there are often direct statements that if taken alone, seem to state the exact opposite of what you seem to mean...

You seem at large quite well-intentioned, so I do want to know what you mean at times.
1081  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: Could happen to any one of us on: June 24, 2011, 11:48:32
That was a challenging read.

Just curious- what do you mean here when you say "Female life (evil)" ?

Here is the fundamental problem with this reality: since no proof seems to be possible one has to assume the worst. Both Hawkins and Christians have made exactly the same fatal mistake: not having found evidence to support either side, both are using blind faith to excuse them from looking any further. This is an unacceptable risk, IMHO.

Yes, Godsproxy, excusing yourself from the obligation of giving rigorous evidence to bold claims like this is culpable regardless of position.

yeah i know what you mean, but lately the same images of the video i posted have been coming out a lot. i think there have been lots of rumours of it coming early in the past, but as it gets to the main date we are seeing a lot of genuine differences in our world, it does make you think. and what did you say about the poles? north is moving you know, 40 miles a year towards russia:

By poleshift, I mean the idea that is often paired with the Niburu concept that the passing planet will alter the axis of rotation of the earth. About a main date: Sitchin, from his reasoning, was claiming that Niburu was coming toward the end of the 21st century, most recently 2085. He only suggested it might come in 2012 in retrospect, citing the Mayan calender concept. So his date of 2012 is more a reflecton of his awareness of the Mayan calender, rather than a corroborating backup of it.

Quote
i was unclear, sorry.  i didn't necessarily mean the return of planet x that will destroy life as we know it or anything like that.  sitchin was just the first place i encountered the idea of a second sun or an unknown planet with a large orbit.  i was always really into astronomy as a kid and it was fascinating to me to learn about the possibility of another unknown planet.

That is ok, nothing to be sorry about. I did not necessarily think you were suggesting that per se. I was more commenting on my past experience with images people present claiming them to be Niburu, and how much what is going on at present resembles those instances. Definitely does not mean Niburu is not out there, or even that it won't come next year, or five years from now, etc. All I am really saying here is that this song feels uncomfortably familiar to me. More a reaction on an intuitive level, really...

Yeah, the Summerland does indeed refer to the nethers. It was taken up again by the 19th century Spiritualists and Theosophists, and in vogue well into mid 20th century.

That's the thing though. In 1999, they said we were seeing pictures of what Sitchin was talking about, and that it would be here any month. They said the same in 2001, and 2003.  People have been finding flares, dots, and smudges of astronomical images for over a decade now, and calling them Niburu. I might sound jaded about this, but if you heard the people speaking about this the same way, and saying "poleshift imminent" every month, and nothing ever changing really, and then seeing the same images and astronomical artifacts today, a decade later...

1088  2012 and The Transition of the Ages / Welcome to 2012 and The Transition of the Ages / Re: Planet X on: June 09, 2011, 22:39:46
Well yes, but the reason I say that is because the Mayans did not forsee a poleshift for all we know about them, which implies that the ideas in question are probably a synthesis with the Mayan calender concepts with other eschatologies based on our own modern interpretations of Sumerian writing; because it requires a person to make connections and combine ideas that come from separate traditions, the particular theory the poster has in mind is bound to be highly personalized, meaning it is hard to address the claims made therein without knowing which specific claims there are to begin with, and to know this, you have to know the specific source.
1089  2012 and The Transition of the Ages / Welcome to 2012 and The Transition of the Ages / Re: Planet X on: June 07, 2011, 20:02:14
What you mention is aparently a real story, Shockstuhh, that was common among the Mesoamericans. I think the pole-shift part though may have been combining ideas Zecheria Stichin came up with based on his interpretations (many now take serious academic fault with them) of Sumerian myth and cunieform writing; it sounds a bit like a compound effort of uniting several eschatologies together. But thanks for the story, I was not aware of that one!

Elements of the 13 crystal skulls legend

The basic elements of the 13 crystal skulls legend is that at a pivotal time in humanity's history, the 13 crystal skulls will be reunited to awaken a new era - transforming from an old paradigm into a new world.

Patricio Dominguez - Pueblo Spiritual Advisor: "The crystal skulls are complete depositories of knowledge and each skull contains a particular specialist area of information - like a living library [each skull is like one volume in a set of encyclopedias]. And the people who will in the future be able to 'read' the crystal skulls will only be able to extract all the knowledge from the skulls once they are all assembled together... Of course, the knowledge that is going to come out from the skulls is quite unimaginable to our current minds. But that it is definitely going to come out at a certain time is already foregone. It has been prophesied. But whether we humans then use that knowledge for good or for our own destruction is really down to our preparations."

Many believe that there is a strong connection between the crystals skulls, the Mayans and the Mayan Calendar ending in December 2012. While there is a current belief that more than 13 ancient crystal skull exist (some say 52, or 4 sets of 13), in recent years, the Mayans have spearheaded a grand reunion of North America's indigenous chiefs in an effort to unite forces towards the commonly foreseen future as recounted by the Mayan elders.

According to Mayan Priest/Shaman, Don Alejandro Cirilo Oxlaj Peres: "... The prophecy says now is the time of the awakening. This is your job now, to awaken. The Vale of the Nine Hells is past and the Time of Warning has now arrived. It is time to prepare for the Age of the Thirteen Heavens. The time of 12 Baktun and 13 Ahau is fast approaching, and they shall be here among you to defend Mother Earth. The prophecy says, 'Let the dawn come. Let all the people and all the creatures have peace, let all things live happily', for the love must not only be between humans, but between all living things. They said, 'We are the children of the sun, we are the children of time and we are the travelers in space. May all the songs awaken, may all the dancers awaken. May all the people and all things live in peace for you are the valleys, you are the mountains, you are the trees, you are the very air you breathe'....Now is the time of return of the grandmothers and grandfathers. Now is the time of the return of the elders. Now is the time of the return of the wise ones. And the wise ones are all of you. Now is the time to go out into the world and spread the light. The sacred flame has been kept for this purpose and now the time approaches when you will be required to love all things, to love a world that has gone crazy, to rebalance the heavens and the Earth. For the Time of Warning has come to pass and the Warriors of the Rainbow are now beginning to be born. The Vale of Tears, the Nine Hells, is over and it is time to prepare for the 13 Heavens. The ancestors are returning, my brothers and sisters, and we do not have long. Now is the time that the prophecies will be fulfilled."

1091  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Record companies suing Limewire for $75,000,000,000,000.00 on: June 04, 2011, 06:40:24
You read the title correctly. The RIAA is supporting 13 record companies in their attempt to sue Limewire, a peer-to-peer file distribution service, for 75 trillion dollars. That is about 1.5 times the value of the entire world's GDP over an entire year. Some say that is more money than even exists in the entire world. This sum was arrived at by multiplying the $150 maximum infringment penalty for an individual download times the total number of instances a song was downloaded across all time on limewire.

While the record companies may have a claim of some kind, I think this is great evidence that production companies are out of touch with reality, and that the RIAA has proven itself to be an absurd organization. I think this is also evidence that copyright law needs to be revised to reflect the real-world situation today. We have laws on the book that related to theft and reproduction of printed media in the 19th century now protecting copyright of digital media that can be copied as data with physical copy anywhere in the loop; the laws don't reflect reality or equity anymore, and they don't apply in the same way to contemporary issues. The way music is transmitted and experienced in our culture is not analogous to previous forms of media, and we clearly need to envision modern methods of ensuring that the creators and distributers are justly compensated, while taking note of the part music and digital copies play in our culture.

C-C-Combobreaker!


You should read The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner, if you haven't, WillIam. It is one of the greatest pieces of understanding ever published in English, and it is a devil to follow and comprehend. It is written from a few different perspectives, all of whom have a different mental disturbance that colors their perceptions. It does not follow a direct chronology, but jumps around from time to time, and from different people's perspectives at random, sometimes after a few words, and this compounded with the fact that most of it is near-imcomprehenisble to start makes it a joy to read. It is read in much the same way that life and existence is experienced- as a stream of connected perceptions and reflections. Faulkner mentioned that he also intended to print every word in a different color.

I mention this because you have been channeling Faulker lately  cheesy

Anyone know any more about this..?

The story is usually called by another name too, the "Marriage at Cana". Clearly anything anyone could know about it is in the gospel verses that describe it:

John 2: 1-11

1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”
   4 “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”

 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

 6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

 7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.

 8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

   They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

 11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.


I don't know that this story is ever mentioned again any other place in Bible. Like many gospel stroies, I think it only occurs in one of the 4 gospels, in this case John.

While no one can say for sure, for obvious reasons (and you should not believe anyone that says they "know" it can't happen), it does not seem to occur from what I have seen, and the reports I have read over the years. I have of course read numerous accounts of people believing they have had a spirit attach to them, but I don't recall any instance where the attachment started from a projection experience.

So while it is within the realm of the possible, it does not seem something you should spend time worrying about, much like it is technically possible that something may fall out of a window and kill you while walking the street, but it is so improbable as to not warrant much thought  wink

But peak oil is about rate of supply, not amount available. There  is indeed alot of oil present in the tar sands, but the energy returned vs energy invested is significantly lower than in Mid-East drilling. And it is also a matter of the rate at which we can extract it; we would need to spend hundreds of billions to produce the infrastructure needed to extract that oil at a rate competitive to pure crude streaming out of the ground from wells. And it takes massive amounts of water to harvest that oil, and the water supply and infrastructure to transport it greatly inflates the price as well. If we can't acheive the same rate of supply, even if the oil is there, peak oil will occur.

Offshore oil is not completely accounted for, but that is a matter of rate of discovery vs volume of exploration. We are searching at several times the rate we did decades before, and our rate of discovery is still dwindling, and yielding smaller and smaller fields on average. We will continue to find new fields for decades, but the rate new known accessible oil is added to the world total is not increasing fast enough to offset supply drops from older depleted fields.

So you propose as a solution to world starvation... direct energy absorption?

Definitely not impossible, but a little out there. There are far simpler alternatives... most of the food produced in the world goes into fuel and chemical production, and to feeding livestock. If even a fraction of this food were made availible at a cheap price, we could feed the whole world with great surplus.

So it is not a question of not having a solution, so much as people not being interested in pursuing the solution.  undecided
