The Number Two Collective: Magic with a K (Let's Push Things Forward) by Mr. Alan Chapman. In an effort to demonstrate that no idea is big enough to explain existence, Buckminster Fuller once described the universe as 'non-simultaneously apprehended'.

The Number Two Collective: Magic with a K (Let's Push Things Forward) by Mr. Alan Chapman

As the universe is not experienced all at once, but sequentially through space-time, we would need to apprehend all phenomena simultaneously (including that which hasn't occurred yet) in order to account for the entire universe. Because simultaneous apprehension is impossible, so too is a theory that explains everything. This spells bad news for theories that already claim to account for everything, such as every religion and philosophy previous to post-modernism. 18 Human Qualities Most Needed to Advance the Global Awakening.

THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL FOR SAUDI ARABIA? - In the News. In the wake of some 48 executions in Saudi Arabia this last weekend, and the outbreak of protests in the Middle East against the (out)house of Saud, some of which have come from within that mediaeval kingdom itself for more freedoms (and are we really all that surprised?)


, this article by Dr. Nafeez Ahmed was shared by Mr. Paul McCartney’s 1966 Death Conspiracy Goes Deeper Than We Thought - Paul McCartney’s 1966 Death Conspiracy Goes Deeper Than We Thought – Prior to Ringo coming forward with this information, a large number of conspiracy theorists suggested that the original Paul McCartney left The Beatles in 1966. Does this latest revelation ‘confirm’ what conspiracy theorists have been saying for years? There is now a massive body of forensic proof, anecdotal testimony, scientific photograph assessment, comparative voice analysis, circumstantial evidence, etc. on the internet which supports Ringo Starr’s ‘alleged’ revelations.

The following article appears to be correct in stating all the primary facts with the exception of the very last paragraph as follows: “The British MI5 also announced an investigation to determine if an imposter could have indeed posed for 48 years as the Member of the Order of the British Empire, Sir James Paul McCartney, during official ceremonies involving Queen Elizabeth II.” BRICS, Latest and Breaking News, Fresh insight on emerging global economies -

Is the Feud Between Iran and Saudi Arabia Really About Islam? In recent days, news of Saudi Arabia’s execution of the Shia leader Nimr al-Nimr, and the diplomatic clashes with Iran that followed, has often been accompanied by an explanation that, in simplified form, goes something like this: The schism between Sunni and Shia Islam is an ancient one, expressed today in part through the rivalry between Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shia Iran.

Those two countries are intractable enemies—“fire and dynamite,” as one Saudi journalist memorably described them. Their proxy battles and jockeying for leadership of the Muslim world have ravaged the Middle East and, as has been vividly illustrated this week, could yet ravage it further. Frederic Wehrey doesn’t buy that narrative. A scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace who researches identity politics in the Persian Gulf, Wehrey believes the execution of Nimr, rather than being the latest salvo in the Saudi-Iran shadow war, was primarily motivated by domestic politics in Saudi Arabia. Photos of the Week: 1/3-1/8. Bizarro David Bowie Returns on Blackstar.

The longest song that David Bowie has ever recorded is, still, “Station to Station,” the ten-minute, 14-second opening salvo from his erratic and wonderful 1976 hit record of the same name. (The album and its creator both have birthdays this month, turning 40 and 69, respectively.) An epic, freewheeling homage to Kraftwerk, kabbalah, Crowley, and Christ (its title, Bowie’s said, was inspired not by train travel so much as the Stations of the Cross), “Station to Station” remains one of the most formally adventurous things Bowie’s ever done: an assertively funky groove speckled with proto-industrial noise that — midway through, at the drop of a drum fill — suddenly explodes into a galloping glam-rock number.

It’s all dizzyingly intoxicating, and somehow lovely. “It’s not the side effects of the cocaine,” Bowie yelps in the second half of the song, “I’m thinking that it must be love!” These songs deal, however obliquely, with murder, death, and all manners of crime.

In 1968 the former studio guitarist and member of the Yardbirds Jimmy Page formed his new quartet Led Zeppelin. Signed to the major label of Atlantic Records and abetted by the loyal and fiercely protective management of Peter Grant, Led Zeppelin quickly gathered a large following in the United Kingdom, Europe, and especially the United States, where their histrionic and very heavy brand of electric blues appealed to the restless post-Sgt.
