Machine Elves 101, or Why Terence McKenna Matters

Machine Elves 101, or Why Terence McKenna Matters
If anyone ever wanted to get to know me (i.e., what makes Daniel tick) the first thing I would have to tell them is, "Read Terence McKenna." In online forums and real life scenarios alike, I quote McKenna like Jules Winnfield quotes Ezekiel in Pulp Fiction. Passionate. A few weeks ago my friend Michelle suggested I write a "Terence for Dummies" piece. The Background Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 -- April 3, 2000) was born under the auspices of a conventional upbringing. Settling on the outskirts of the Mission at La Chorrera, it was the events that transpired during this crusade that became the catalyst of McKenna's ideas. The Experiment It was here that Terence and his party became acquainted with Stropharia cubensis fungi (now known as Psilocybe cubensis). In essence, you can change reality while tripping on ‘shrooms. The bread crumbs leading the McKenna brothers to this perspective was in fact the shamanic method. The Result Time stopped, became tangible. The Revival The Elves Related:  Philosophy and Spirituality99 Bottles

The EGG Story by Roger Nelson, early 2002 Someday after mastering winds, waves, tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will discover fire. — Teilhard de Chardin1 Part 1: History and Connections There are times when we share with others a special, fully interconnected consciousness. The research described here points to subtle indications that we do live in an interconnected, potentially conscious world, in which we surely play an important role. The Global Consciousness Project An international collaboration of researchers interested in the extraordinary potentials of consciousness is responsible for an experimental project that is asking whether some faint glimmering of a coherent global consciousness can be observed. The project emerges out of scientific efforts to study direct effects of consciousness on physical systems.3 The possibility that mind can be instrumental in the world is an idea with a turbulent history.

Science and Spirituality Any Points of Contact? The Teachings of U.G.Krishnamurti: A Case Study [Paper presented by Dr. J.S.R.L.Narayana Moorty at the Krishnamurti Centennial Conference held at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, U.S.A., May 18-21, 1995] The following paper discusses some issues commonly raised in regard to the relationship between science and spirituality. I shall include in my discussion references to a few well-known contemporary scientists, e.g., David Bohm, Rupert Sheldrake and Stephen Hawking. U.G. Religion, of which spirituality is considered an essential trait, has in the past come into conflict with some of the theories and conclusions of science. Some religions, in particular Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism (and perhaps also Confucianism), have, at least sometimes, claimed to have no particular conflict with science, particularly in the areas of the origins of creation and the manner in which it occurred. about as testable as any other theories.

Metagifted Education Resource Organization: Home The Present - Universal Truth - The Ultimate Truth A man should look for what is and not for what he thinks should be. Albert Einstein Truth you can check: It is as matter of fact as the ground and as useful as food. It's the kind of truth that can make hate and war as unnecessary as ignorance. Charles Darwin revealed how evolution works, but not what it really means. Evolution is no longer just a theory; it has been proven true beyond a reasonable doubt. The evidence says we evolved as life evolved. Human beings did not just appear at the top of the evolutionary ladder to reap the benefits of those millions of years of evolution without having to live through it. In other words, you were those other animals. You had to be lower animals to be a human now. In addition to the fossil evidence, the genetic code proves that all animals, including us, evolved from bacteria over the last 700 million years on earth. In other words, you were a microbe, an insect, a fish, a dinosaur, an ape... How do you know you are dead? Everything is balanced. 1.

What Are Indigo and Crystal Children and Adults Spanish/Espanol How do you know if you, or someone you know, is an Indigo or Crystal Child or Adult? We will describe the main features and characteristics of these people. The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the Earth for the last 100 years. The Crystal Children began to appear on the planet from about 2000, although some date them slightly earlier. The Indigo and Crystal Adults are composed of two groups. The following extract describes the difference between Indigo and Crystal Children. The first thing most people notice about Crystal Children is their eyes, large, penetrating, and wise beyond their years. The older children (approximately age 7 through 25), called "indigo Children", share some characteristics with the Crystal Children. Those adults who resist change and who value conformity may misunderstand the Indigos. The terms "Indigo" and "Crystal" were given to these two generations because they most accurately describe their aura colours and energy patterns.

What the Hell is Praxeology? Praxeology is the study of those aspects of human action that can be grasped a priori; in other words, it is concerned with the conceptual analysis and logical implications of preference, choice, means-end schemes, and so forth. The basic principles of praxeology were first discovered by the Greek philosophers, who used them as a foundation for a eudaimonistic ethics. This approach was further developed by the Scholastics, who extended praxeological analysis to the foundations of economics and social science as well. In the late nineteenth century, the praxeological approach to economics and social science was rediscovered by Carl Menger, founder of the Austrian School. The term praxeology was first applied to this approach by the later Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises (portrait at left). Independently of Mises, analytic philosophers in the ordinary language tradition – like Ludwig Wittgenstein, J. Some online sources on praxeology: Back to main page

Daniel Jacob Channelings by Daniel Jacob The newspapers and magazines have nicknamed them "Generation X." The television commentators have called them "hard to read, even harder to understand." These are the offspring of that incredible genetic explosion of angst and wonder, the Baby Boomers. It has been predicted (by several) that, on or near December 22, 2012, all time (as we know it) will stop. There are no new souls being born into this universe. Since about 1973, there are no children anymore. Ask a "Star Child" what she wants to be when she grows up. Star Children grow up doing their math homework while watching TV and listening to a walkman at the same time. The brain of a Star Child is a multi-track device. The two hemispheres of the old brain are plugged into many polarity configurations. When the tourniquet is released, and they eventually let go of that compliance, the "other side of the brain" will become a unified OneMind. Those personality-types that have been called "A.D.D."

Ancient Theories of Soul (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) First published Thu Oct 23, 2003; substantive revision Wed Apr 22, 2009 Ancient philosophical theories of soul are in many respects sensitive to ways of speaking and thinking about the soul [psuchê] that are not specifically philosophical or theoretical. We therefore begin with what the word ‘soul’ meant to speakers of Classical Greek, and what it would have been natural to think about and associate with the soul. We then turn to various Presocratic thinkers, and to the philosophical theories that are our primary concern, those of Plato (first in the Phaedo, then in the Republic), Aristotle (in the De Anima or On the Soul), Epicurus, and the Stoics. Adopting a bird's-eye view of the terrain that we will be covering, and setting many details aside for the moment, we can describe it as follows. 1. The Homeric poems, with which most ancient writers can safely be assumed to be intimately familiar, use the word ‘soul’ in two distinguishable, probably related, ways. 2. 3.

Characteristics Of Indigo Children/Adults Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes) I've recently been told by my guides to focus my work on helping Indigo's find their way to the light. This includes helping Indigo's identify who they are and then help them develop their gifts. I think the thing that strikes me is that most is that Indigos do not know they are Indigos nor do they understand, or maybe have never labeled, their abilities. An important aspect of whether or not Indigos struggle is the exposure to metaphysics in their life growing up. It seems that if the family environment or culture does not allow for such a discussion or experience great pain and personal misunderstanding can occur. Indigo Children are, many are no longer children, those who contain a soul that has evolved over many lifetimes to become of a higher state. Question authority. Very sensitive. Depression is common. Clear Sight. Do not do well in systems. High School is difficult for Indigos. Feeling alien. Patience is not an Indigo virtue. Author's Bio:

Richard Cassaro » Research The Triptych Temples Of Atlantis Unprecedented New Archaeological Evidence That A Highly Advanced “Lost Civilization” Flourished In A Remote Age Older Than Recorded Time Did the world’s first cultures inherit the same high wisdom from the same more ancient but now-vanished Mother Culture? The ancient pyramid cultures all built these Triptych (Three-Door) Temples. Like the pyramids, the presence of these Triptych Temples worldwide throws enormous weight behind the “Atlantis” theory—the idea that civilization has much older roots than presently accepted by science; that there is a major forgotten episode in human history; that an advanced ancient culture once flourished but was destroyed in a cataclysm; and that history’s first known cultures were inheritors of its legacy. There are two different versions of history. We already know the mainstream version found in history books. But there’s another, more mysterious hidden history that’s not so widely known.

octarine RITUALS AND SPELL OBJECTIVES AND DESIGN IN EIGHT MAGICS by Pete Carroll Our perceptual and conceptual apparatus creates a fourfold division of matter into the space, time, mass, and energy tautology.
