Where did we go wrong.
Bj Carpenter you know I gotta drop some science on this page. I think you'll enjoy this hot take by Sabine on scientific methodologies in advanced physics being degenerative, rather than progressive. She also raises some questions about how groupthink mentality can infiltrate physics research.
So I've been noticing that popular culture isn't completely ignorant of history as we often say, but merely understands only a few major events:

1. N**i Germany
2. Slavery and the Civil War
3. The Civil rights movement

We try to take EVERY single event and understand it through these lenses.

How do we encourage more literacy of history, and how do we push beyond these simple narratives?

What history books pushed you beyond your understanding of history?

Based on comments by Sander's supporters, it's not hard to see how a really old Joe Biden is going to complete the greatest presidential comeback ever at Bernie's expense.
Bella Black and I will be having a live debate tomorrow evening 9PM EST. The proposition:

'There are good arguments for the existence of God.'

I will be pro. I will post a link prior for anyone interested in watching.

Looking forward!
Do you attribute your worldview (monotheist, polytheist, atheist, agnostic, determinist, dualist etc.) to logic, meaning argumentation? Or do you think you hold your view a priori, in a properly basic fashion, where it just makes more sense to you? Do you think it is maybe some sort of Hybrid?
dude is a mite controversial but he's gone places few dare to tread for speaking the truth. he's the only person really bringing attention to muslim r**e gangs. the fact that instead of listening to him or ignoring him, the authorities penalized him for bringing attention to the situation is nightmarish!
gay wanna-be president pete buttigieg wants to decriminalize spreading HIV and pretends it never happens. caustic writer jim goad brings receipts for several times that it has happened in very large amounts.
i can see people not cockblocking themselves but it opens the door for 'revenge AIDS'. should it be legal to not announce your sickly status?

[09/09/21]   "The principal goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done—men who are creative, inventive, and discoverers. The second goal of education is to form minds which can be critical, can verify, and not accept everything they are offered." -Jean Piaget

[07/17/21]   Thoughts on Authenticity, Death, Time- Limit on Life, Karma (Action and Reaction), and True Healing (Correct or Righteous Action)
‐-----------------‐-----------------

If a man knew he would die in one years time, the actions that he would take showcase his true character, ambition, vision, passion and spirit (or lack thereof for all mentioned).

The effect that our truly authentic and newfound energy might have on the world would leave its mark forever.

It would cause damage to some places... and sew up those rifts, voids, and tears in others. Utter destruction to certain relationships would occur, and even stronger bonds in other areas of his life would be rebuilt.
(Relationships with people, places, and things, of course.... but most of all, including his attachments to and relationships with his memories, aspirations, fears, dreams, and Will.)

Either way, in this thought experiment of mine, it seems that the actual outcomes wouldnt matter. That whether or not the goal was accomplished by the years end (being actually achieved or not), is miniscule in comparison to what would be unfolding behind the scenes, Deeper within the veil.

The magnitude of such actions as a dying man's would mostly display to all of those people he loves and surrounds himself with, the bareness of his true nature.

In such exposed vulnerability, would the man be accepted, loved, understood, and respected?
Or would he be chastised, demonized, ridiculed, and decried?
Would he invoke feelings of admiration and inspiration in others, or the complete opposite?
Would he cause love and life to flourish, or would it be suffering and despair?
Perhaps the outcome would look one way or another purely relative to the context of time....

In any case,the actions of others are both causal, and caused, within "The Funhouse of Mirrors" that I alluded to during an episode of The Archive by the same title.

The dying man would experience his final flame of life, at the cost of some thing or another, that by necessity must move to the wayside due to the sake of his short time remaining.
(This is Alchemy 101...
..."Equivalent exchange", for the Full Metal fans out there . . .)

And whether or not that firey blaze lights the way for the truth to be seen or not wholly depends on the collective unity's total spiritual and emotional evolutionary stage.

The lesson and conclusion of this thought experiment?

Be kind and gracious to your people and be kind and gracious to yourself. We all fall short of the glory of God and we are all children.

Less than 10 to 30,000 days old, most of us. . .

We are all fumbling in the dark, bumping into our neighbors, repeating the same mistakes our ancestors have for years in a gridlock with ourselves and our karma across the eons.

Humanity creates all of its own problems, but humanity is also capable (and only humanity is capable of this) of Healing the Wounds inflicted upon itself, by itself.

We can do so by first being true to ourselves, and handling the consequences and repercussions with an ardent vervor. . . .

But then reconciling that karmic energy by rightful intention, and a strong effort to mend and properly revive what is inevitably going to break.

Just as a doctor may purposefully break a wound that heals incorrectly, for the purpose of recycling the healing process in a more proper fashion on the second go-round, the process of the self finding the Self may require a dissolution, shattering, dismantling, dividing, or destruction.

It may require a total authentic representation of the essence of life itself, in order to truly recover and escape the constant repetition that is life, death, and rebirth.

Or perhaps it is that exact course of action that continues to perpetuate the hellishness for most of eternity, trapping us within our own egotism, lower vibrational states, and delusions.

Yoking and tethering us to the "Great Wheel".

The Messiah Complex and How to Avoid it 07/15/2021

The Messiah Complex and How to Avoid it

Do you know someone who believes themselves to be appointed by God to save the world? Do they claim to hold the ultimate authority on Truth or Righteousness? Do they believe that they (and they alone) have all the answers to all of mankind's problems? Have you ever experienced some of these feelings yourself?

In this discourse episode, we discuss the "Messiah Complex". Some highlights include:
-How it originates and how to avoid adopting the complex yourself,
-Whether or not a messiah can be recognized as such
-The nature of arrogance and narcissism
-How to can grow and integrate some of these negatively charged self-delusions that seem to riddle even the most intelligent individuals.

Thank you for joining us in continuing the Great Conversation.

[07/10/21]   Seeing as many (if not all) governments throughout recorded history have proven to be corrupt, elitist, and ultimately amoral and immoral. . . . What does that say about the nature of humanity in general?

A.) Does that not inspire a feeling that humans indeed SHOULD be governed? That we 𝙊𝙪𝙜𝙝𝙩 to be?

or

B.) Does it lead one to feel that no human should govern another human because of our collectively innate nature to succumb to corruption and power.

If you pick B, then your philosophy is too anarchistic to build any meaningful society larger than a local compound.

If you pick A, then your philosophy aligns too closely with despotism to build any truly meaningful and lasting societal structure, despite it potentially being a rapidly growing and expanding construct.
--------------------------------------------------------

How can we reconcile these ideas and come to a conclusion which will allow us to choose the lesser of all evils as we try to live our best lives as a species? How can we find ourselves at the truth of the nature of self and Self, and how might we come to become collectively conscious of this phenomena?

These are difficult questions.

DMT and the Soul of Prophecy Book Review 06/05/2021

DMT and the Soul of Prophecy Book Review

In this book review we discuss "DMT and The Soul of Prophecy", Rick Strassman's follow up to "DMT the Spirit Molecule", in which he tackles major unresolved issues left behind after finishing the original project 20+ years ago. In this text, he attempts to find a model that fit the data from the original volunteers’ reports of the psychedelic-induced state. This ultimately led him to the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) where the notion of a “prophetic state of consciousness” began taking shape.

The tarot is a highly misunderstood and often misrepresented system that contains within it, the blueprint to the esoteric secrets of reality and creation. It is versatile and is able to synchronize with virtually every other ancient philosophical system.

Tarot contains within it correspondences to Astrology, Kabbalah, Alchemy, Jungian Psychology, and more. Taking all of the nuance into consideration, (including the history and mystery of the tarot) one begins to realize that the term "ancient and occult science" (aka The "Perennial Philosophy") is much more than whimsical or mythical nonsense. . . .

We cannot use reductive processes to intuit the entire gambit of reality.

A holistic perspective, although just as ultimately impossible as it's opposite counterpart (reductitionism), is the correct approach towards understanding any system.
