Sunday Matinee: Eros and the Eschaton

Seekers of the Shew Stone,

Hope all’s well in your own little Hattervilles on this sublime Sunday.  Watching the American political process in action always remindS me that while I’ve often seen a cat without a grin, only in the home of the 64 oz soda will I see a grin without a cat.  At least one thing was clarified further last week – contraction of the social programs relied upon by the most vulnerable shall continue, and the WASP power structure shall also continue to fund its military industrial complex of conformity by cannon. Always open to ideas of how to convince Americans that a robust public education system and Medicare for all are better investments than winged weapons of death btw.

Whatever happened to doing unto the least of my brethren? Lol I guess the historical record of the Imperialist Reformation is better reconciled with In Hoc Signo Vinces.

I know that communication is the sine qua non of society, but my mistrust of words has seemingly been becoming more pronounced in recent weeks.  Somehow partners, a preference for prolonged periods of the pre-planning phase of prose production has been posited as positive.  But, since such personal peccadilloes plague not plenty, here’s master wordsmith McKenna waxin poetic as a form of compensatory damages.  I guess it’s my homage to irony.  Grab a pineapple express pizza and enjoy Terence’s assault on the fragmented religion of science.

One love,

HJ

P.S. My fellow seekers of the a priori reality will definitely dig this one.

Sorting the chaos

lorenz

Greetings Heralds of the Lightning,

I hope the Downpressor Man hasn’t diminished your vitality of Spirit too much since we last spoke.  As you’ve probably figured by now, every few weeks I use this blog as a forum where I can express my indignation at the ubiquitous injustice that accompanies the march of McWorld.  Dunno what I hope to achieve, but I consider it sanity preservation therapy more than anything else. As I’ve come to realize however, concepts are more rarefied in abstract and despite the real world significance, notions like drones using drones to kill people or the cell block as a 21st Century version of the auction block, are about as meaningful as considerations of wave/ particle duality to many engaged in the frenetic pursuits of the “real” world. Time simply permits no more than a general awareness of events not directly impacting one’s life.

For you kindred spirits of the blogosphere, I thought I’d ignore the misdeeds of the miscreants today and try to sort some of the mush on my mind. Blogging after all is the last refuge of the introspective, and the verbose. The 5hr Energy horde descending on the world rarely engages in discourse that cannot be delineated in less than 120 characters. And it also seems that my lifetime has bore witness to the death of flowery, conflated writing, in favor of more direct, concise expression. Guess who didn’t get that memo?

Just as it’s impossible for one to really know what it’s like to be a bat, the subjectivity of experience makes it is impossible for one to know what it’s like to be another person. We must each progress from Zarathustra’s camel, to lion, to child, and this process of interior evolution is an individual one. The camel operates under the imposed burdens of another. Whether “Thou shalt not” or “This Bud’s for you,” the camel is governed by the dictates of exterior directives and must learn to govern its own mind. The lion is an assertive response to his burdened predecessor and seeks to impose his will upon the environment. Solipsism is his burden however, as the fulfillment of selfish objectives as the highest pursuit neglects the communal nature of human society. The final evolution of the child signifies a birth of an untainted consciousness viewing the world with novel wonder. The possibilities are bootstrapped with neither syntactic restraints nor limitation of thought.

Today it seems like the practice of rapidly shifting the focus of our conscious apparatus from one triviality to another has rendered us confused. This confusion thwarts the apprehension of the larger laws by which we are governed, which are the province of men to understand. To remedy this chaotic state and as an alternative to the barrage of digital media, I sometimes like to observe the interactions of the natural world. I think it helps to settle my mind and allows for inquiry. Whether spiders, birds, trees, or bees, I find the intelligence at work to be mind-boggling.  Ant-watching is often more rewarding to the Voice of the Silence than an equivalent time spent on stylized violence and catty housewives.

While observing ants engaged in the painstaking process of colony building, I often wonder whether they possess an awareness of the superior law to which they must yield. Namely my objective for the space they inhabit. They proceed in intersecting queues, stopping briefly to exchange information, in a rather similar fashion to humans proceeding along the busy streets of an urban hub. Their industrious nature is unsurpassed however, as leisurely pursuits are not an adaptation of the consciousness at work in the class insecta. The ants work diligently and possess no awareness of my planned avocado project until the soil is tilled and the underground fortress to which they have dedicated their time is laid to waste.

Unlike ants however, we can comprehend the larger scheme of which we are part. Yet we refuse to acknowledge a superior system until we are forced into reconciliation. It takes catastrophic oil spills and radiation leaks to spur our acknowledgement of the complex system of life of which we are only a thread. Why do humans just proceed along building our fortresses of ego until upended by consequence? I sometimes wonder whether this is a viral vestige. Viruses will multiply until the death of the host occurs, although that probably means their own demise.

Philosophers have argued that choice renders the human algorithm unsolvable. But is there choice? Is the human stage one of improv or are we executioners of scripted verse? I like to think that I possess a choice in the decisions I make, but ask yourself what do you really choose in your own lives? Choice may be debatable but I think that ample evidence exists to acknowledge the presence of a masterful pattern at work in the cosmos. Some say that any perceived scheme is merely the effect of pareidolia, namely the apprehension of a pattern where none exists. But I often wonder, how can one not perceive the pattern. The cycles of nature, the rotation of the planets, the omnipresence of Fibonacci spirals, a heavenly symphony of the spheres is on nightly display, all we need do is look. There are even patterns at work within the evolution of DNA.

The evolution of the human brain from less complex structures is a shift from less to more organization. Randomness implies that at each advance towards negative entropy, there exists an equal probability for reversal. This means that if something advances fortuitously, it is equally likely to be reversed at the next stage. Consider a sequential doubling series where 1 atom becomes 2, then 4, 8, 16, 32, 64… If this occurs with no regression, it means that the evolutionary trend of increasing complexity yielding a successful structure is not a random process. Chance expressly excludes this occurrence.

If this process were random, each adaptation would be vulnerable to collapse. The successful unification of processes denies the fortuitous adaptation argued by proponents of random mechanism.  Else you would not be sitting at a computer reading the musings of a bar-stool philosophizer. I think it’s therefore quite safe for us to relegate the idea of evolution as a random process to the same status as the 6000 year theory of the earth – an impossibility.

Now if we take the advice of our friend Mr. Holmes and eliminate the impossible, what’s left? Well that’s for you to come up with. That’s the beauty of the thing, you’re free to reject or accept anything. I think conformist thinking has constrained this human experiment for far too long.

One love,

HJ

Dis-equilibrium

Culture is a diversion that detracts from the business of being.

If you’re new and stumbled across this post through a series of fortuitous clicks, first consider that there are no accidents in life, and second, take anything I write and please criticize, or debunk or conduct further analysis. Just don’t accept ANYTHING at face value. The precondition for awakening is an open mind.  The rabbit hole is deep indeed and the Veil of Isis will not be lifted but by one who is discerning of thought. There is a relentless assault upon your consciousness by a cabal which seeks to skew your perceptions through an insidious control apparatus. Furthermore, the crowbar required to rip the wretched clutches of the dominator culture from the instrumentality of power cannot be wielded by any single individual.

As said previously, gnosis can only be accomplished by a radical disassociation from all established conventions of belief. Any construct that posits itself as truth must likewise be assaulted. To pierce the veil of illusion promulgated by the power junta who sent 60,000 of your healthiest sons to die fighting windmills in Indochina and added a toxin borrowed from the Nazis to your drinking water, one must shatter memes and dissolve misconceptions. But here’s the good part, once you begin to see thru the deception, you can free yourself from the control matrix. So let’s take a stroll amigos.  Anyone got a Backwood btw? (Hey, c’mon now, we’re walkin in Colorado)

Much of this is covered during orientation before boarding the Nebuchadnezzar, but for those only just beginning to feel the reverberations of awakening, let’s just say that you’re in for one helluva ride. The matrix programmers are extremely brilliant and unless you learn to see the world through their eyes, you may as well brand yourself like a steer pumped up with hormones, antibiotics, and Posilac and head off for a date with a McDonald’s sesame seed bun.

Speaking of cattle, ever peep the sizes of the udders of the dairy cattle treated with bovine growth hormone manufactured by Eli Lilly, Monsanto and Upjohn? The mastitis is a rather unsettling sight to behold. Do you realize that all milk and milk derived products from ice cream to M&Ms contain this shite?  Deceptive advertising gimmicks like the friendly M&M characters are used to disarm the public regarding the health risks presented. Here’s an interesting topic for study – compare the rates of various diseases like obesity in the population before and after 1994, the year Posilac entered the food chain.

I can offer neither p values nor confidence intervals, but I do observe and compare the sizes of the school children walking down the street over the past 20 years. Recombinant bovine growth hormone is injected into dairy cattle and is absorbed by humans who consume the milk and milk derivatives. Moreover, the impact to humans was not sufficiently studied prior to introduction.  Hmmm, maybe the UK, Germany, Canada, Japan, and a host of other nations that contradict the FDA got the threat wrong. The FDA seemingly has the best interests of the public at heart else there would be no recall of the multitude of improperly tested pharmaceuticals they approved for use.

With the Super Bowl a week away, football yields another observation you may find interesting. The sanitizing of illegality via spectacle is something that we’ve unconsciously grown to accept. Michael Jordan and other world class athletes have taught us that excellent performance in the athletic arena can be used to whitewash Nikes’ sweatshops much like the English Premier League overlooked and sanitized the fact that Barclay’s Bank was comfortably involved with South Africa during apartheid.  As Mars Blackmon postulated, “It’s gotta be the shoes.”

While historically the circus has been used as an instrument of distraction, I find the conflation of military culture and professional athletics, most notably American football, to be a rather curious phenomenon. Popular media coverage of football is replete with metaphors of “battle,” “war,” “troops,” “general leading his army,” etc. and it’s impossible to miss the military pomp and circumstance that accompanies game coverage. Now, I understand the use of military rhetoric and propaganda as a recruiting tool often guised as patriotism, but I must humbly ask, are the same notions of “patriotism” inapplicable to fans of golf or tennis? Or did I miss the F-16 fly by at the PGA Championship?

Count the number of military ads in an hour block of football or basketball and compare it to another sport with more costly barriers to entry. I think you’ll notice an unsettling trend. Makes me wonder why the private school kids didn’t have recruiters extolling the virtues of “travelling the world” with a convenient omission of the “with one leg” clause. There were another group of fellas that undertook a hyper-militarization of the young, especially the lower socioeconomic classes through violent competition and rabid nationalism. Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Führer!!

Conspire to see

This one’s a bit off topic, but maybe there’s a method to the madness. There are primarily two reactions to information put forth by alternative theoreticians, more pejoratively referred to as conspiracy theories. The first is an automatic acceptance without investigation, and the second, an automatic declaration that what is heard must be false, also without investigation. There is however a third reaction and although significantly less common, it pretty much defines the response of us glitches. The strategy is to grant each encountered proposition equal weight at first blush, and then let the foundational premises and evidence do the rest. Et ex testimonio.

The discounters of alternative explanations are often dismissive because if they can’t conceptualize it, it must be false. The believers are likewise equally misguided as often times progressives, Theosophists, and even the Red Cross can become a threat facilitating the extinction of humanity.  There can be no real awakening in the absence of veritas however and thus our path is chosen by the force that drives us to seek comprehension.

Those in the know say that reciprocities exist within dichotomous conceptions but our tendency to operate solely within a framework of duality can be limiting. Take the story of human origins for example. Anyone who challenges the Darwin-Wallace evolutionary paradigm is automatically labelled as an advocate of the Genesis model. This is absurd. A or B may be sufficient for Chevy or Ford, paper or plastic, and Coke or Pepsi, but the story of humanity demands that we apply a highly discriminating intellect. After all, the word “man” in Sanskrit is loosely translated as “mind.” The trend of belittling those who seriously inquire into the pedagogical proffer is rather disconcerting. If we accept Schopenhauer’s model of the evolution of truth, namely first ridiculed, then vehemently opposed, then finally accepted as self evident, then at one point evolution itself must have been considered conspiratorial in nature.

So what happens when we examine evolution with that high powered microscope? Lemme preface this by saying that I’m no geneticist, so if you can shed additional light, please don’t hesitate to chime in.  And, this ought NOT be construed as an endorsement of creationism, I just think that the trend of teaching evolution as immaculate fact of human origins is problematic.  Evolution is usually presented as a sacred cow and any questioning of the paradigm is tantamount to heresy. But, there are some gaps in the coverage that the salesmen conveniently omit when extolling the robustness of the policy. Micro evolutionary principles remain robust, but there is a chasm that has yet to be satisfactorily explained where you and i are concerned. 

In the words of Cicero, it is not weight of authority but force of argument that should be considered. So let’s take a look at the argument shall we. Based on the work of Lloyd Pye and others, apparently there are huge discontinuities between man and the various apes for whole mitochondrial DNA, genes for RH factor, and human Y chromosomes.  According to KD Smith’s 1987 study Repeated DNA Sequences of Human Y Chromosomes, most human Y-chromosome sequences so far examined do not have homologues on the Y chromosomes of other primates. This observation suggests that a significant proportion of the human Y chromosome is composed of sequences not acquired from primates.  The human female X does look “ape-like,” but not the male Y.  Evolutionary biologists find similar genes between man and ape and construct a tree of descent while ignoring the disparities that seems to be staring them in the face.  There is also no evidence of macro-evolution i.e. not a single transitional, unambiguous species has ever been found in the fossil record. When something is as vehemently defended as the theory of evolution is, even to the point where questioning is tantamount to professional suicide, it is incumbent upon you to inquire into what else you may be deceived about.

In the last few years I’ve become rather enamored with the idea that the alchemical differentiation of a prime source substance into a phenomenological universe is an intelligent process.  I often wonder about the degree to which man can enter into direct experiential knowledge of this intelligence. I’ll keep you guys posted on that subject but until then, consider that there is a principle:

That speech does not illumine, but whereby speech is illuminated,

That the eye does not see, but whereby the eye can see,

That cannot be heard by the ear, but whereby the ear can hear,

Is not conceived by mind, but whereby the mind can conceive. (Kena Upanishad)

One love,

HJ

 

Richard Dawkins takes a trip…

Richard Dawkins takes a trip...

Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said, “Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the esteemed scientist, “What would you like to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said Mr. Dawkins. “How about why there is no underlying intelligence in the universe, evolution is an entirely random occurrence and consciousness is an epi-phenomenon of matter?” as he smirked smugly.

brain-cell-universe

“Okay,” she said. “Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?”

The uncompromising positivist, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.” To which the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss the Universal Mind underpinning nature, the guided process of evolution, and that which eludes the experimental method, when you don’t know sh*t?”

And then she went back to reading her book.

One love,

HJ

Sunday Matinee – KYMATICA

The following is taken from the introductory monologue and I hope it stimulates your curiosity to watch further.
“Evolution is a term to define only one organism and that’s the “Self.” The self is the Universe, the self is the Alpha and Omega, God, and Infinity, and that’s the only thing that evolves because we are all part of the self. Nothing goes through an evolutionary process alone or without direct benefit to the whole.”

As with anything else, your reaction to this film will be defined by a combination of both acceptance and rejection. My goal is not to provide definitive answers by sharing this, but rather to facilitate the drawing of independent conclusions. Besides, a little seismic activity to test the structural integrity of your reality tunnel is never a bad thing.

For example, I personally conclude that there are actors that seek to shape history through a concerted effort of global financial usury exercised through the mythology of the “job-creator” class. However, I would certainly hope that you do not take my word on this, but would instead investigate various sources such as the Powell Memo, the Bank for International Settlements, Basel III, and the sources of funding behind the World Wars to name a few. Be lights unto yourselves mi gente.

One love,

HJ
