Facing The (Horrible) Future

This article was originally published by Chris Martenson on PeakProsperity.com I’d like to tell you a short story based on a movie that has had a profound impact on me. I’ll get to the story in a moment, but first, a little background on the movie… It’s called Griefwalker (by Tim Wilson) and it focuses on the life and wisdom of Stephen Jenkinson, a theologian and philosopher who worked as an end-of-life specialist for many years. Because we all must face death in our lives, inevitably our own someday, I highly recommend this movie and Stephen’s work to everyone. After sitting at the death beds of a thousand individuals, Stephen has accumulated a wisdom regarding the process of dying that is perhaps unmatched in our modern times. His views and insights are extraordinarily powerful and extremely well-delivered in the movie. Stephen is a blunt yet thoughtful man, and my own interview […] Read More

The Coming Techno Apocalypse (The Dangers of Transhumanism)

Imagine, if you will, a war in the near future. A war not fought between East and West. Not fought between nations, nor creeds nor races. A war fought brother to brother and sister to sister, father to son and mother to daughter. Tesh (technologists) against NonTesh (non-technologists). The Tesh, a tribe or caste intoxicated and socially validated through their umbilical connection to technology and the Meta/Hive Mind. Glued to Google Glass, status permanently updated: the Tesh always offer the right opinion at the right time. Incapable of nonGroupThink, the Tesh occupy all positions of import in the professional, media, academic and information classes. Opinions counter to Tesh GroupThink are not only by definition incorrect, they are also invisible – filtered, de-platformed and deleted into a silent nonexistence. The NonTesh are homeless, stateless non-people. Unable to participate in comfortable society’s rituals and prefabricated dialogues, without access to currency and […] Read More

Proof of Life after death? A man’s soul “left body and traveled across the universe”

According to a man who insists on having traveled through other dimensions since the age of five, a man’s soul can leave the body and exist independently in the universe. Curiously, in recent years scientists have investigated the possibility of life after death and said how consciousness is maintained in the cosmos after death. Whether or not Out of body experiences are real is something that has gained popularity among many people in recent years. In fact, it has become so popular among many people that scientists have begun investigating the possibility. However, a man named Todd Acamesis claims he has been having out of body experiences for 42 years, ever since a near death experience when he was five. Out of body experiences are described as the feeling that you get as if you were floating outside of your body. Some say this can be achieved via meditation, and how […] Read More

Has Science Discovered God?

Einstein didn’t believe it was possible. Stephen Hawking said it might be the greatest scientific discovery of all time. What discovery has baffled the greatest scientific minds of the past century, and why has it caused them to rethink the origin of our universe? New, more powerful, telescopes have revealed mysteries about our universe that have raised new questions about the origin of life. Has science discovered God? But wait a minute! Hasn’t science proven we don’t need God to explain the universe? Lightning, earthquakes and even babies used to be explained as acts of God. But now we know better. What is it about this discovery that is so fundamentally different, and why has it stunned the scientific world? This discovery and what molecular biologists have learned about the sophisticated coding within DNA have many scientists now admitting that the universe appears to be part of a grand […] Read More

The Ars Notoria: A rare ancient text said to teach superhuman abilities

The Ars Notoria is a rare ancient magical text that is said to perfect memory and master academia among other incredible things.  “…The Notory Art revealed by the Most High Creator to Solomon. In the Name of the Holy and undivided Trinity, beginneth this most Holy Art of Knowledge, revealed to Solomon, which the Most High Creator by his Holy Angels ministered to Solomon upon the Alter of the Temple; that thereby in short time he knew all Arts and Sciences, both Liberal and Mechanick, with all the Faculties and Properties thereof: He has suddenly infused into him, and also was filled with all wisdom, to utter the Sacred Mysteries of most Holy words…” – The Notory Art of Solomon. The Ars Notoria – An Ancient Magical Book to Perfect Memory and Master Academia Do you believe that there are ancient texts that help understand how humans function? Several […] Read More

Is Consciousness the Bridge Between Science & Religion?

by Peter Russell, Collective Evolution Science and religion often seem poles apart–and in many ways they are. But I believe the two can, and will eventually be, united; and their meeting point will be human consciousness. That we are conscious beings is the most obvious fact of our existence. Indeed, all we ever know are the thoughts, images, and feelings arising in our consciousness. Yet as far as Western science is concerned, there is nothing more difficult to explain. Why should the complex processing of information in the brain lead to an inner personal experience? Why doesn’t it all go on in the dark, without any awareness? Why do we have any inner life at all? This paradox–the undeniable existence of human consciousness set against the absence of any satisfactory scientific account for it–suggests there may be something amiss with the current scientific worldview. Most scientists assume that consciousness […] Read More

The Pineal Gland, DMT, Forbidden Knowledge

One of the most won­drous parts of our phys­i­cal body is the Pineal Gland.  It is also called the epi­ph­ysis cere­bri, epi­ph­ysis, conar­ium or the “Third Eye.” It is a small endocrine gland in the ver­te­brate brain. It pro­duces sero­tonin and mela­tonin, hor­mones that affect mood and mod­u­late our wake/sleep pat­terns and sea­sonal func­tions. Its shape resem­bles a tiny pine-cone (hence its name in Latin, pinea, which means “pinecone”), and it is located near the cen­ter of the brain, between the two hemi­spheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thal­a­mic bod­ies join.

Mysticism

Mysticism is a discipline involved with knowledge and techniques which are of value in assisting the individual toward spiritual growth. It is a very pragmatic discipline, concerned with direct experience, or awareness of spiritual truth, of ultimate reality, etc., which can be attained through immediate intuition, insight, or illumination. Mystical methodology is not based on external experimentation, but internal observation. According to Lama Anagarika Govinda, “The mystic anatomy and physiology … is not founded on the ‘object-isolating’ investigations of science, but on subjective — though not less unprejudiced — observations of inner processes, i.e., not on the dissection of dead bodies or on the external observation of the functions of human and animal organisms, but on the self-observation and on the direct experience of processes and sensations within one’s body.”(5) Mysticism regards intellectual knowledge as an aid to the direct experience of ultimate “truths”, but not as an end […] Read More

2001: Are Science and Religion Compatible?

We need separations between religion and science, ethics, and the state. But there is an appropriate domain for religion, and in this sense science and religion are not necessarily incompatible. That domain is evocative, expressive, emotive. Religion presents moral poetry, aesthetic inspiration, and dramatic expressions of existential hope and yearnings. Paul Kurtz There have been many conferences recently discussing the relationship between science and religion. The Templeton Foundation, for example, has supported numerous conferences on this theme. Many of those participating in these discussions apparently assume that science and religion are compatible. They argue that there is no contradiction between them, and some even maintain that science confirms the basic principles of religious faith. I suspect that most of the participants of this conference, made up predominantly of skeptics and nontheists, do not agree. There are many areas where religionists and scientists make radically different truth claims. Some of […] Read More

DNA as Cosmic Code

If you possessed technologies so advanced that you could seed life throughout the cosmos, wouldnt you leave some marker that would identify your work? We cant know what a hypothetical extraterrestrial intelligence might do, but we do know enough about human nature to acknowledge the desire for recognition. It shows up every time a new squabble breaks out over who really discovered an exoplanet humans crave the praise of their fellows. Yes, if humans had life-seeding technologies, you can bet we would leave signs of our craftsmanship.Consider what the Keio University team working under Masaru Tomito has done in Japan. As explained in a New York Times essay by Dennis Overbye, theyve inserted copies of the immortal equation E=mc2, along with the date of its derivation (1905) into the genome of a bacterium. Thus we see DNA as a kind of archival medium. Overbye is reminded of Jaron Lanier […] Read More

1968: The Nine Unknown Men

From _The Morning Of The Magicians_ By Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier Published by Avon Books. 1968. pp 67 – 71. This [legend] goes back to the time of the Emperor Asoka, who reigned in India from 273 B.C. He was the grandson of Chandragupta who was the first to unify India. Ambitious like his ancestor whose achievements he was anxious to complete, he conquered the region of Kalinga which lay between what is now Calcutta and Madras. The Kalingans resisted and lost 100,000 men in the battle. At the sight of this massacre Asoka was overcome. Forever after he experienced a horror of war. He renounced the idea of trying to integrate the rebellious people, declaring that the only true conquest was to win men’s hearts by observance of the laws of duty and piety, because the Sacred Majesty desired that all living creatures should enjoy security, peace […] Read More

1935: Beyond Human Personality

Being a detailed description of the Future life purporting to be communicated by the late F. W. H. Myers [Frederic William Henry Myers, 1843-1901] Containing an account of the gradual development of human personality into cosmic personality through GERALDINE CUMMINS “For it has been my lot to be concerned in a work more important and more successful than anything in my own capacity or character could have led me to expect. I have been one of the central group concerned in a great endeavor; the endeavor to pierce, by scientific methods, the world-old, never-penetrated veil. The movement which took overt shape in 1882, with the formation of the Society for Psychical Research, was aided indeed by help from other quarters, but in its essential character was the conception of a few minds, and was piloted through its early dangers by a small group of intimate friends. With this endeavor […] Read More

The Book of Pleasure

The Psychology of Ecstasy By Austin Osman Spare Definitions The words God, religions, faith, morals, woman, etc. (they being forms of belief), are used as expressing different “means” as controlling and expressing desire: an idea of unity by fear in some form or another which must spell bondage-the imagined limits; extended by science which adds a dearly paid inch to our height: no more. Kia: The absolute freedom which being free is mighty enough to be “reality” and free at any time: therefore is not potential or manifest (except as it’s instant possibility) by ideas of freedom or “means,” but by the Ego being free to recieve it, by being free of ideas about it and by not believing. The less said of it (Kia) the less obscure is it. Remember evolution teaches by terrible punishments-that conception is ultimate reality but not ultimate freedom from evolution. Virtue: Pure Art […] Read More
