“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think” – Socrates

Zero Point II – The Structure of Infinity takes a more focused look at the fractal nature of our holographic universe. Through examination of the Mandlebrot set and fractal geometry, the film maker takes us on a journey through the conceptual universe culminating in a paradigm shifting view on the nature of reality itself.

Sunday Matinee – THRIVE

I encourage you to independently verify any assertions made by the producers of this film. Remember compadres, believe nothing, merely entertain ideas.

“THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what’s REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream — uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives.”

I think we all know what’s at stake by now and it’s time to stop trying to plug holes one at a time while confusing the moon with the finger pointing the way to it.  The system is not broken, it was designed this way. Somewhere they talk about the pharaohs disappearing into the sea, into the sea alright, the sea of humanity. So while we could debate capitalism, Marxism, anarcho-socialism or any of the other -isms, these are only beautiful on the pristine pages of a Political Theory 101 textbook. Something has always prevented humanity from ensuring that each and every man, woman and child has the right to self-determination. And this predates Adam Weishaupt by 2500 years.

Change the flag, aristocratic iteration, or victims, the song remains the same. A rather small group has previously and still continues to maintain that its well being ought to be ensured at the expense of the right of others to live.  Hope you enjoy the film.

Cherry or in the Sky?

Cherry or in the Sky?

How from no-thing the primal thing arose,
How power of light through the night did ring,
Imbuing the depths of the beings all;
Thus welled up desiring’s surge.
And the elements disclosed themselves,
With hunger into one another poured,
All-imbuing, all-imbued 

Goethe

Jung shares a few thoughts.

Stumbled across this little gem and decided to share with my Jungian friends out there. The uploader was kind enough to provide a transcript of the dialogue. I thought that the following statement was particularly poignant and profound – “The word “believe” is a difficult thing for me. I don’t believe; I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis. Either I know a thing; and when I know it, I don’t need to believe it. If I don’t allow myself, for instance, to believe a thing just for sake of believing it. I can’t believe it! But when there are sufficient reasons for a certain hypothesis, I shall accept these reasons naturally.”

Interviewer: I know that you say death is psychologically just as important as birth and like it is an integral part of life, but surely, it can’t be like birth if it is an end. Can it?

Jung: Yes. If it is an end and there we are not quite certain about this end because we know that there are these peculiar faculties of the psyche- that it isn’t entirely confined to space and time. You can have dreams or visions of the future. You can see around corners and such things. Only ignorants deny these facts. It’s quite evident that they do exist and have existed always. Now these facts show that the psyche- in part, at least- is not dependent on these confinements. And then what? When the psyche is not under that obligation to….live in time and space alone- and obviously, it doesn’t. Then, in .. to that extent, they psyche is not submitted to those laws and that means a..a practical continuation of life of a sort of psychical existence beyond time and space.

Interviewer: Do you- yourself believe that death is probably the end or do you believe….

Jung: Well, I can’t say – wissen Sie ? (German translated would be: you see ?)- the word “believe” is a difficult thing for me. I don’t “believe”; I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis. Either I know a thing; and when I know it, I don’t need to believe it. If I- I don’t allow myself, for instance, to believe a thing just for sake of believing it. I can’t believe it! But when there are sufficient reasons for a certain hypothesis, I shall accept these reasons naturally. And to say “We have to recon with the possibility of [so and so].” You know?

Interviewer: Well…now you told us that we should regard death as being a goal and to stray away from it is to evade life and life’s purpose. What advice would you give to people in their later life to enable them to do this when most of them must, in fact, believe that death is the end of everything?

Jung: Well…you see I have treated many old people and its quite interesting to watch what their (??) is doing with the fact that it is apparently threatened with the complete end. It disregards it. Life behaves as if it were going on and so I think it is better for old people to live on…to look forward to the next day; as if he had to spend centuries and then he lives happily, but when he is afraid and he doesn’t looks forward; he looks back. He petrifies. He gets stiff and he dies before his time, but when he’s living on, looking forward to the great adventure that is ahead, then he lives. And that is about what your conscious is intending to do. Of course it is quite obvious that we’re all going to die and this is the sad finale of everything, but never-the-less, there is something in us that doesn’t believe it, apparently, but this is merely a fact, a psychological fact. Doesn’t mean to me that it proves something. It is simply so. For instance, I may not know why we need salt, but we prefer to eat salt too because we feel better. And so when you think in a certain way, you may feel considerably better. And I think if you think along the lines of nature, then you think properly.

Hope you enjoy.

One love,

HJ

More than a thousand words…

The Three Ships

The Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria.

Three little ships from Spain,

Sailed over the seas, under skies so blue,

Sailed on through the wind and rain.

So brave was the captain,

So gallant his crew,

Their faith remained steadfast,

Till their goal came in view.

The Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria,

Three little ships from Spain,

Inspired the later pioneers

Who settled on hill and plain,

So great was their labor,

Their courage so true,

That our mighty nation

From their striving grew!

Figure I’ll stick with the Columbus theme for illustration purposes. Certainly seems rather apt.

One love,

HJ

An excerpt from A People’s History of the United States.

Arawak men and women, naked, tawny, and full of wonder, emerged from their villages onto the island’s beaches and swam out to get a closer look at the strange big boat. When Columbus and his sailors came ashore, carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts. He later wrote of this in his log:

Terra Nullius?

“I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.” (emphasis added)

(To the Peel Commission 1937) – Sir Winston Churchill (no Sir of mine).

The race argument may have been facially concealed by the self-perceived elite, however the latter’s disdain for life continues to be expressed via its system of financial oppression. I hope this provides a modicum of insight into the pathology underlying the mindset of the aristocrats that the middle and lower classes must confront. An inverse relationship was once extolled between melanin and humanity to facilitate the plunder and exploitation of lands. Today, the working class of all races is being subjected to the same belligerence and contempt as the commons are privatized and the social support system is eviscerated. The all encompassing argument this time seems to be that there exists a primary causal relationship between effort and poverty. This is BUNK!!! You are not poor because you don’t work hard enough. By its very design, our societal economic structure demands a large swath of the population exist on the brink of starvation.

Do not believe that the individuals who seek to establish a neo-serfdom share the same respect and compassion towards humanity as you do.  It is also rather naive to assume that the oligarchy is unaware of the difficulties associated with living below the poverty level. The union worker is now viewed with the same contempt as the red man once was. Leopards never change their spots compadres and power concedes nothing willingly.  The talk of spending cuts is aimed at you who require assistance to survive. You who work 60 hrs a week at $7.25/ hr and is then taxed to facilitate the death of innocents around the globe as the march of empire continues. You who benefit from social programs like Medicare and public school to facilitate the well being of your family. Those drones and Israeli weapons are not paid for with tax dollars from General Electric after all.

The purpose of a state should be to ensure that its citizens thrive and not merely to facilitate capital acquisition for a particular socioeconomic class.

One love,

HJ

P.S. Make a whole lotta noise in defense of Social Security and Medicare against austerity measures at all costs.  John Galt is not your friend.

Addendum – But then again, the public won’t win any title when not if, the Fed does a Duran, “No mas,” to the US. The private contractors are untouchable, as are the big oil subsidies, capital gains rates and the Pentagon, but the cuts have to come from somewhere.  Hmmm, somehow the pressure is always applied upon he who can least afford it. Here’s a thought, how about a financial transaction tax of 0.5% on every securities transaction on all exchanges? Worth a shot but I doubt anyone in D.C. wants to offend Baron Dimon and Count Blankfein.
