Street people

So you might have noticed that there are people who live on the street. Street people, in fact.

It seems that the overall consensus of people who live in houses is that the people living on the street represent a problem for society.

There is less of a consensus as to what should be done about the problem of the street people. Depending who you ask, perhaps we should rehabilitate them, give them job training, pressgang them, convert them to a religion, house them, incarcerate them, educate them, kill them, or some combination of those.

Obviously each of those options comes with its own set of difficult questions but most of those questions are boring from being asked over and over again and they all avoid the important question which is,

What if there's nothing wrong with living on the street in the first place?

We have -always- had street people in our cities. Based on this fact alone we should be hesitant to declare the phenomenon wrong unless we're prepared to declare something fundamentally wrong with humanity itself.
No doubt many people are ready to do that. Still, most of the arguments I've heard in favor of the worthlessness of humanity are arguments about the worthlessness of humanity in post-Roman Empire society, not the worthlessness of the human organism in itself.

The human organism has literally billions of years of experience under its belt in the art of living for free off of the environment. Compare that to its mere thousands of years of experience living in cities and towns, working at jobs, and consider that from a purely biological standpoint we are probably better equipped to live like street people than like office workers in apartments.
In the event of a total economic and societal collapse, we may find that the people who have already been living on the street are better equipped for survival. That makes the automatic reaction of revulsion and disdain that many experience at the sight of a homeless person seem a little backwards to me.

Mythological Thinking and Quantum Angels



I had a thought today, and it was very interesting, and it stuck to my consciousness like gum on an old boot.

There's a girl I like to talk to, she is essentially a literalist, and I was trying to reconfigure my paradigms and dig for ideas, so I could make her reality intelligible to my own.

Have you ever heard of Quantum Angels?

I have told her that she has based her worldview on a collection of Jewish Fairy Tales, as Bill Maher would say, a bunch of semi-historical myths cribbed from the civilizations that dominated the middle east 5,000 years ago.

And yet, there is a kind of allegory, if you read Genesis as a simplification of evolution, it still makes sense, in an incomplete, simplified way...

but what was beginning to stick to my brain was The DreamTime... Mythological Thinking has it's power, because if there are Quantum Angels, and our expectations inform our realities, then it must be considered that perhaps there is a location in spacetime, a time and a place, that's there right now, but it's also in the past, because it informs this world, it creates this world, and the Quantum Angels make it so...

every world is interconnected, the world of the mind and the world of the body, and the world of energy and so on.

a mirror, but some are mirrors that give truly opposite reflections..

in some time that is right now, but somehow before, there IS a garden and a snake and a sword of fire, and these things really are happening, these Mythological Worlds, and they are what our minds make of the data we receive from higher order emanations, from different reflections our minds cannot cope with...

if you look deep enough inside, will Krishna be smiling back you, will he be playing his flute? Quantum Physics and Chaos Theory have done nothing less than proved these Fairy Tales true, but in a very infuriating sense.

I remember a line from a movie I enjoy, Total Recall: 'listen to yourself, Doug.. she's real because you dreamed her?'

just a thought, just a thought that stuck to the roof of my brain like peanut butter, and me with no milk...

Evolution v Intelligent Desgin... wait, what?

why must intelligent design and evolution be opposed?
do I believe that an invisible man made two people out of dirt and we all come from them? NO. that’s just stupid.
it IS possible for an anomaly like a cyclone going through a junkyard, and making a 747 by accident… but only once. EVER. and I’d shit bricks.
that being said, Bud’s Theory of Evolution presupposes that cyclones have been turning out 747s every thursday afternoon, for trillions of years. also stupid.

the real question is: why does life cling to survival?
why does it care? if we come from a bunch of minerals that got hit by weird electricity or just happened to decide one day that they’d become an animal, then what caused that, because this theory depends on an inherent mind that is independent of matter, you know, like GOD or something.

just because Bible Freaks say and think dumb stuff, doesn’t mean that Atheism is the only answer.

Agnosticism. it’s called intelligence. I have seen stuff happen randomly, and sometimes it happens in such a way that the Neuroses of Religion makes me think that when I have an experience of synchronicity, it’s like God is winking at me.

the Apologist: In defense of L Ron Hubbard



Muladhara wrote:


this is what is happening with L Ron Hubbard right now. he was a drug addict, all the way to his death.
he was a criminal and a litigous curmudgeon.

He invented narconon, while downing amphetamines and barbiturates and rum, with a crew of 13-16 year old girls lighting his cigarettes and wiping his butt.

why? he was in it for the money. when he wasn't getting as much in as he thought he should, he squeezed the members and pushed for recruitment, and raised the price of his 'techs'

when enough people got to the 'final level', he just 'discovered' another one and wrote up a new tech while blazing on speed.



Well first of all, most or all of these things are probably true. There's certainly no shortage of evidence that L. Ron Hubbard participated in superhuman levels of manipulation and hypocrisy, and even though most of that evidence comes from hostile sources with a bone to pick, there really is quite a lot of it. And there sure are a lot of said hostile sources.

But the hostile appraiser comes to the table looking for fault, and therefore sees past actions outside of the context in which they were actually taken. And what use speaking ill of the dead? L. Ron Hubbard cannot learn from criticism. And to whom could the case of L. Ron Hubbard serve as a cautionary tale? Not to any who risk repeating his mistakes.

If you are a brilliant young idealistic megalomaniac with animal magnetism, out of control ego, and misguided messianic complex, you don't look like L. Ron Hubbard to yourself. You look like the tragic misunderstood hero.

He doesn't look like me. He is that other kind of person. This is the same reason that the use of L. Ron Hubbard-as-scapegoat cannot serve as a potent medicine against corruption and hypocrisy in the citizenry-at-large, those multitudes who are not brilliant would-be modern saviors, or at least are unrealized as such.

The demonization of L. Ron Hubbard certainly isn't keeping anyone out of any cults. It doesn't even keep people out of his cult. The assertion that Hubbard was a con man is pretty well circulated by now, and yet there are somehow still millions of paying Scientologists. If you want to keep people out of cults, you provide them with the means to obtain on their own terms whatever it is that these cults promise to deliver. And if you can't do that, you should at least be defaming the living. L. Ron Hubbard doesn't recruit Scientologists anymore. 22 years after his death we have run out of useful ways to hate him.

So can we absolve the dead in this case? Here is a man who founded a multinational anti-drug organization, who spoke out violently against psychiatry, who was a hopeless addict to pharmaceutical drugs. You don't need to look at him with hate or disdain. You can notice how his discovery that income tax auditing is an ancient rape-like submission tool employed for trillions of years by our alien controllers came when his own troubles with the I.R.S. were at their worst, and you can pity him in light of this realization.

You can pity the helpless dead man who sold millions of people on a system of self-help that could only cure the psychological issues he had identified in himself. And who could not cure himself. The hypocrite, the addict, the compromised idealist. He was not one-of-a-kind. He was a modern human.

DMT is illegal because the Government doesn't want you to contact aliens on your own...

DMT is illegal because the government doesn't want you to contact aliens on your own.

source: physicist Cliff Pickover's article


DMT, Moses, and the Quest for Transcendence
by Cliff Pickover, Reality Carnival

"DMT in the pineal glands of Biblical prophets gave God to humanity and let ordinary humans perceive parallel universes."

The molecule DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine) is a psychoactive chemical that causes intense visions and can induce its users to quickly enter a completely different "environment" that some have likened to an alien or parallel universe. The transition from our world to theirs occurs with no cessation of consciousness or quality of awareness. In this environment, beings often appear who interact with the person who is using DMT. The beings appear to inhabit this parallel realm. The DMT experience has the feel of reality in terms of detail and potential for exploration. The creatures encountered are often identified as being alienlike or elflike. Some of the creatures appear to be three-dimensional. Others appear to lack depth.



I believe the government is keeping these chemicals illegal because it is hiding the perceptual gateway to the Alien Universe.

I think some aliens live in this world, and some travel through it, like the Greys.

I think that the DMT, because it is so close in structure to our usual world-lens seratonin, allows us to see a broader reality, even if it is one we cannot easily function in, a window into 'Hyperspace'.

Seratonin and other chemicals are used by the brain to organize the sense-data we constantly take in into recognizable reality-pictures, or models.

we know that what we see is not exactly what is there, we only see seven colors, we can't see radiation or infrared and so on.

There are experiments where electricity was used to cause abduction-like experiences including paralysis and Greys.

DMT by the way, actually causes paralysis in most people.

there is also intense fear.

So to capsulate it, DMT is a window through which man can see another world, where Greys either originate, or travel through to our dimension

The government started covering it up after these discoveries were made in the 80s and 90s. It keeps the chemical on a tight leash.

perhaps the governments Black Ops dept. is still running DMT aided RV crews...?

"this is intelligence" an epistle to the Revelationists

this a response to long thread on Above Top Secret

it always amazes me how far xtians [no I won't call you christians, you are hypocrites, and money handlers and criminals. we know what Jeshua bin Joseph did to those punks... ] go not to think.

You accuse people of evil influence when your entire life is run by a book by questionable authors compiled by romans hundreds of years ago, works by a myriad of great and also foul men.

it is a book.

you cling to it because society does not question you doing so.

if I say the only way is through me, and have 12 guys write twelve stories of how wicked cool I am, and get myself arrested and fake my death, wait a thousand years.... there will be millions of people like you who will beleive the whole thing.

this is what is happening with L Ron Hubbard right now. he was a drug addict, all the way to his death.
he was a criminal and a litigous curmudgeon.

He invented narconon, while downing amphetamines and barbiturates and rum, with a crew of 13-16 year old girls lighting his cigarettes and wiping his butt.

why? he was in it for the money. when he wasn't getting as much in as he thought he should, he squeezed the members and pushed for recruitment, and raised the price of his 'techs'

when enough people got to the 'final level', he just 'discovered' another one and wrote up a new tech while blazing on speed.

why do people fall for it?

Hard sell techniques, and of course, a grain of usefulness. in fact, even William Seward Burroughs thought that the original Dianetics was very useful.

see, it's after they hook you that they charge you more and more for increasingly useless stuff.

in OT3 you essentially ouija board YOURSELF to exorcise your demons... woops! I mean body thetans.

but back to xtianity.

you are following to the letter a text that has been translated hundreds of years ago for the third time by a group of people whose livelihood depends on fleecing you, and to fleece you, they must own you.

to own you they convince you that there is an invisible man, who lives in the sky and watches everything you do, every day of your life, and makes lists of things he will punish you to eternal damnation for if you do them... but he loves you.

(propitiations to George Carlin go here)

how exactly do you know that demons have no bodies?

because the bible says so.

why is adultery wrong?

because the bible says so

Neophobia begotten by control.

if you are a man of intelligence, why would you suppose a supreme being would be so concerned with what you think of him?

if a supreme being is so merciful, why is there a way to mess up, unless he WANTS you to mess up?

oh, but he LOVES you, so we have to reconcile that by picking a prominent angel called Satan, who seems to be pretty tight with the Big Guy (see Job)
and we'll make him Angra Mainyu, that is, the Evil God, god's twin, so that way we can blame all the bad stuff on him.


What is wrong?
What is right?

there are only relatives to an intelligent man, there are things that aid survival and things that aid death.

safe/danger. survival/non-survival.

so what is not safe is Evil.

what is safe is Good.

an intelligent man is a practical man. if something is found to be helpful to him, he will adopt it, label it good. if he finds something to be harmful, that he labels bad.

this is for reference.

I have too few characters left to continue.

final point:

why do you assume an angel is a physical being? an angel or even god is beyond you, so they would not be confined to a body, as you are.

maybe a discorporate being would be like a man, not evil or good, just trying to survive.. well, maybe they eat our emotions, our beliefs.

do you call the wolf evil for eating the rabbit?
perhaps the carrot can forgive the rabbit for eating it.

this is intelligence.

everything has to eat.

Thursday, July 3, 2008

Last night I was having drinks with a friend of mine who declared that all he wanted to be happy forever was a cybernetic augmentation that would give him a 1GB cache of perfect memory and an interface providing a gigabyte-a-second rate of direct information transfer into his brain.

I said that what I wanted the most is for people to be able to witness other people doing things that they would never do and don't have any context for understanding whatsoever without feeling the need to step in and ruin everything. He said it sounded like I had a specific incident in mind. I don't think so though. I do know that sometimes I have been restrained from action by the feeling of certainty that someone else will stamp on the result.

Perhaps there is some specific incident I have repressed? Have I absorbed the trauma from so many people around me who've experienced something I have not? Someone told me the story of his discovery, while playing at a young age, of a huge magnificent orb spider, and his subsequent terror at the thought that another of the boys he was with would notice it, and destroy it. That's the first incident that comes to mind, but it is not mine. Then there's the story from another childhood, of a young girl carrying a small box turtle she'd found, the neighbor boy asking to see it, and upon having it passed to him, dashing it down onto the sidewalk and killing it. That one's not mine either, but I still get angry thinking of it.

I am not a luddite and I can certainly see the potential for the radical expansion of human capabilities through cybernetics, but we've not yet discovered the full potential of our unaugmented minds. And this is still the place and time when talk radio hosts still throw fits of confused outrage upon hearing that male pubic hair grooming is becoming more and more common in society.




The Unwitting Conservative Conspiracy: From Capitalist 1st World, To Communist 3rd World...(part I)


Both Capitalism and Socialism, on paper, have pretty decent ideas, not all good, not all bad,
so let me start off by saying that this really is about what people are doing with these ideas,
not a critique of these ideas.

This is my analysis and extrapolation of where the Ideology of the Conservative/Republican party.

1. By creating corporate fiefdoms, and de facto monopolies, then de-regulating them and globalizing them,
the corporations and their management hierarchies seperate themselves from the nation. With no ties
or concerns for the parent nation (in our case, USA), they will, and have, priced entire industries out
of the country. example: There are no real Textile Industries in the majority of regions in the US.

1b. this will first help the economy by lowering prices, then obliterate it by eliminating Blue Collar Jobs and
even White Collar Jobs. (see India Textiles & Telecoms, Chinese EVERYTHING).

1c. by ensuring activity in only the top half of the economic pool, [that being the Owners/Investors
and Upper Managers as well as their Government Counterparts/Infiltrators] Inflation outpaces Growth, and
the economy recedes and possibly crashes.

2. By privatization of social programs and reallocation of funding from social programs to foreign wars and
national security programs, the country is further destabilized by causing ignorance and unrest, with
an enormous and copiously breeding uneducated working class, as well as an even bigger 'vice' class [aka Gangs]
who exist to take advantage of the working class, who are depressed and uninsured, depending on illicit drugs or
alcohol to self-medicate.

2b. with this process completely evolved, the middle classes will be eliminated entirely, leaving a very small
'Noble Class' and a very large 'Peasant Class' who will be controlled by superstition and misdirection
[megachurches, FoxNews], and of course, outbreaks of rioting will occur.

2c. to counter the rioting, police will be militarized and the dissenting 'Peasant Class' will be labeled
'Terrorists'. an undeclared civil war will break out, and entire regions will be controlled by gangs and
paramilitary organizations. [see Colombia and their relationship with FARC]

3. Eventually, the 4%ers [aka the 'Nobles'] will be releived of their military because that military will not
get their paychecks, because the government will have no money. private armies [gangs] take over.

3a. fighting will continue until one of two scenarios occur: scenario A- the paramilitary orgs unite and divide
and conquer the ruling class, absorbing their private armies this clearing the way for a Fascist Communist Party
to take over, in collective recoil from the failures of the Capitalist Free Market Strategy; OR scenario B- fighting
continues until an outside agency [China?] invades.



Conclusion: by finding a truly Centrist path, social socialism and economic capitalism with an anti-fascist bent
and checks and balances, we will avoid economic and cultural upheaval and the degredation of the USA.





Unwitting Liberal Conspiracy (1st world to 3rd world part II)

This is the second in a series of extrapolations and speculations based on observations of American political memes, and the consequent dystopian outcome of their unchecked administration.

1. *Immigration* By continuing the practice of unchecked and uncontrolled population exchanges, particularly the one-way flow from Mexico to the United States, a number of serious destabilizing forces manifest-

1a. Wage Depression- by eliminating safety standards and living costs, Latin American immigrants become the preferred employee, further destabilizing the social infrastructure because they generally do not acclimate or assimilate to American culture or language, creating confusion and disaffection of the remaining non-Hispanic workforce, who become more and more resentful towards the immigrants because their quality of life has been substantially diminished. A form of solastalgia overcomes them, in that their default environments become unrecognizable, and they get no comfort from familiarity.

1b. By allowing both a relatively ‘open borders’ policy as well as a foreign-focused Homeland Security Bureau, the trade of contraband (from drugs to explosives) and humans will skyrocket, and gang warfare in border towns will explode.

1c. Terrorist Infiltrators will have free access to the country due to the nonexistent security, and the free movement of ‘licensed’ Latin ‘Temporary Immigrant Workers’, [who to the untrained eye can be indistinguishable from many varieties of Middle Eastern genotypes] back and forth.

2. *Trade* (we’re talking NAFTA/CAFTA) by creating unbalanced trade agreements that create dependency on our strongest and most incompatible rivals (Mexico, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., Colombia, China specifically), we are crippling our economy.

2a. By pricing our industries out of the country into Asia and South America, we are essentially exporting our money completely out of the country but for the retailer markup profits, which never make it down to the ‘associates’ who usually make little more than minimum wage. By accepting unfair trade treaties, we run up enormous trade deficits with our biggest geopolitical rival, the Red Chinese.

2c. A lovely destabilizer that is a natural consequence of this process is the degradation of standards of food and goods. At this time, a majority of our goods are coming from our ‘trade partners’ in China and Central America.
Our toys have lead in them, our pets are fed poisoned food, etc.

If the people can’t trust their food or their children’s toys, a pervading feeling of distrust and resentment grows toward the ever-expanding government, which every day seems to change from merely not caring about the people to apparently hating and wanting to kill the people. Civil Unrest is imminent

3. *Ecological Extremism* by over-regulating and pricing industries out of the country, foreign producers with nonexistent ecological standards will come to dominate the economy, taking yet more money out of american hands and eliminating more jobs in the name of environmental protection which will be ignored in the countries that the industries operate in.

3a. Prices hike because of over-regulation induced economic slowdown, compounding civil unrest.

3b. Destabilization of rural economies as a result of Endangered Species Act, road work and construction projects slowed severely or shut down to protect obscure animals native to a given region.
This not only hurts the economy but breeds a feeling that the government cares more about animal than human lives.

3c. Infrastructure destabilization as construction projects and roadwork [and Zoning restrictions on development] are delayed or stopped, or re-arranged in a less efficient manner to accommodate local flora and fauna.

4. *Social Programs* by structuring programs to reward the unmotivated while punishing the motivated working class in need of assistance, a sense of hopelessness pervades the working class, and a feeling of resentment builds in the middle and upper classes, who feel they are giving the poor a free ride.

4a. By creating this feeling, support for social programs drops, and people who need a Hand-Up and not a Hand-Out are left behind, when they could be busy working their way up and living the american dream. Resentment and anger builds in the left-behind workers, both towards the ‘welfare parasites’ and the ‘reformers’ who compound the problem by cutting funding instead of reconfiguring the system . A large and angry class of the working oppressed emerge.

4b. Racial tension builds as white workers are denied a hand-up while minorities are perceived to be getting a free ride. White-power movements among the working class thrive and expand, destabilizing the country.

4c. Structuring the system to favor broken homes and deny functioning families fosters the proliferation of broken homes, and increases lack of motivation to hold families together. With no family values the crime, teenage pregnancy, and alcoholism/drug addiction rates explode.

5. *Civil Liberties* the democrats are creating an atmosphere of oppression by legislating in a fashion that violates the bill of rights in it’s entirety, by Censorship (see 1990‘s media persecutions), Over-reactive Gun Control (see District of Columbia Gun Ban), Search and Seizure and Wire Tapping without warrants (IRS, Drug War), Due Process (see GITMO, Drug War) and so on.

5a. By stomping on our inalienable rights, the government is signing it’s death warrant. By ignoring the rights that americans hold most sacred, they insure seditious intent in the populace.

5b. Even the Smoking laws(specifically banning smoking in private businesses and homes) help to destabilize the country by disenfranchising entire segments of the population. In this environment discrimination against smokers is rampant, making people lose jobs and opportunities for homes and even schooling due to an addiction to a legal substance that does not impair mechanical ability or judgement.

5c. By over-regulating firearms, the government disarms the people, leaving them susceptible to attack from terrorists, criminals, and the government itself. They get away with this because they convince people that all guns are as dangerous as RPGs, and the NRA doesn’t help matters by fighting to get access to RPGs (yes I know, an exaggeration, but illustrating a valid point).

5d. By supporting draconian drug policies, they increase crime rates because of access issues (addicts will buy drugs from black marketeers), which the cartels are more than happy to exploit. Border towns and smuggling routes become domestic war zones.

This also contributes to the civil unrest caused by overall over-regulation induced oppression.

Conclusion:

Liberal policy undermines libertarian ideals on which our country is founded, creating civil unrest and seditious sentiment, distrust and resentment towards government.

These policies continue to erode the economic and social fabric, while opening the country to foreign invasion.

Racial tension and class tension ferments, and the slightest downturn or political event will explode into civil war and economic failure.
