ChaOmega CyberSanctuary Archive (Coming Soon)

This is the future home of the ChaOmega CyberSanctuary Archive Currently Under Construction
...I plan to have available a complete and edited version of the posts. The edited version will exclude the basic conversations and focus only on philosophy and magick. I also plan to make a quotes page because there were some pretty profound things said over the years. - fr. d~d, chaomega mod

'Witches' in the clear after 400 years

(Edinburgh Evening News - free reg req'd) Ceremony to vindicate men and women executed for ‘crimes’
The most famous of East Lothian’s "witches" were burnt at the stake for whipping up a storm to sink one of the king’s ships.

Official forgiveness has come a little late for the scores of women and handful of men executed in one of Scotland’s hot-beds for witch-hunting.

Nevertheless, 400 years after the persecution reached its fevered heights, pardons will be bestowed on them in a ceremony in Prestonpans on Sunday.

Eighty-one victims of the witch-hunts who have been identified by local historians will be pardoned by the 14th Baron of Prestoungrange in the Halloween ceremony...

To make sure the witches’ story continues to be commemorated, the Prestoungrange Baronial Court has also declared Halloween a day of remembrance in honour of those executed.

Tesla Coil in Magic

(we shut off the house coil today incidentally - plenty of residual energy in the area still - I&I guess I don't know enough to comment on this stuff, just find it interesting. I did try placing a small fetish & it's amethyst on the coil for two weeks, and it did seem the energy associated with the fetish got pretty hyper, but no records were kept)

Hypoallergenic cats now ready for pre-order

Los Angeles-based company Allerca is now taking reservations (costs $3,500!) for the world's first genetically engineered hypoallergenic cats.

The hypoallergenic cat is the first of a planned series of lifestyle pets that ALLERCA will develop over the next few years.

Long-Lost Final Film by Ed Wood Rediscovered

Necromania (1971) the first DVD released under the Fleshbot Films imprint
The 1971 movie is a porn film documenting the sexual enlightenment of a young couple at the hands of a coven of witches...

"This is something more than just porn," said Fredrik Carlstrom, executive producer of the DVD featuring two versions of the film, one soft core, the other more explicit.

"This is an old film. It's in the '70s, they're hairy, they don't look the way we are used to now," Carlstrom said.

"It has a story, it has ambition ... It's like all his films, like anything that's so bad it becomes good. Or maybe it's pure genius. That's the appeal of Ed Wood."

Scientists uncover possible new species of human

CNN: scientists working on a remote Indonesian island say they have uncovered the bones of a human dwarf species marooned for eons
One tiny specimen, an adult female measuring about 3 feet tall, is described as "the most extreme" figure to be included in the extended human family. Certainly, she is the shortest.

This hobbit-sized creature appears to have lived as recently as 18,000 years ago on the island of Flores, a kind of tropical Lost World populated by giant lizards and miniature elephants...

The lower jaw contains large, blunt teeth and roots like Australopithecus, a prehuman ancestor in Africa more than 3 million years ago. The front teeth are smaller than modern human teeth.

The eye sockets are big and round, but they don't carry a prominent browline.

The tibia in the leg shares similarities with apes.

Fly the freak flag high

I used to see these folks on the streets of Lawrence all the time. From time to time I still do, but not in the same numbers. I miss them.

A couple of years ago, the New York Times ran a story about a new slogan for Austin, Texas, that had originated out of nowhere: “Keep Austin Weird.” I was jealous when I read the story, thinking Lawrence should have come up with something like that.

Keep Lawrence Freaky? Is it already too late?

Kerry’s the One

The American Conservative
November 8, 2004 issue

(note the date)
A Bush defeat will ignite a huge soul-searching within the rank-and-file of Republicandom: a quest to find out how and where the Bush presidency went wrong. And it is then that more traditional conservatives will have an audience to argue for a conservatism informed by the lessons of history, based in prudence and a sense of continuity with the American past—and to make that case without a powerful White House pulling in the opposite direction.

George W. Bush has come to embody a politics that is antithetical to almost any kind of thoughtful conservatism. His international policies have been based on the hopelessly na├»ve belief that foreign peoples are eager to be liberated by American armies—a notion more grounded in Leon Trotsky’s concept of global revolution than any sort of conservative statecraft. His immigration policies—temporarily put on hold while he runs for re-election—are just as extreme. A re-elected President Bush would be committed to bringing in millions of low-wage immigrants to do jobs Americans “won’t do.” This election is all about George W. Bush, and those issues are enough to render him unworthy of any conservative support.

Occulture | Antero Alli

"The Secret Marriage of Art and Magick"
Outside traditional learning institutions, somewhere between the global mythologies of Joseph Campbell and the iconoclastic Illuminati conspiracies of Robert Anton Wilson, are "invisible colleges" espousing hybrid forms of art and occult knowledge, referred to hereafter as occulture. The academic credentials of its teachers are questionable; some have no degree, others never graduated grade school. Most are self-taught in the School of Life after passing the prerequisite tests of survival in the real world; more often than not, this has meant psychic survival, as well as economic. As a result of competing political and ideological forces, many of these teachers remain anonymous or assume the camouflage of pseudonyms. Many find solace as poets, artists and musicians (especially those who do not call themselves "poets, artists or musicians.") Yet, all seem to share a fierce alliance with the occultural driving force of an enraged imaginative intelligence, rebellious to the over-literalization of traditional culture, while adamant about nurturing its own microcultures and subcultures into existence...

Occulture, as the "secret marriage of art and magick", has remained inaccessible and hidden ("occult") to those unable to afford the technology, talent and imagination for creating it themselves; until now.

Dracula to Bush and Kerry

Dear Senator Kennedy

found in my email:
Friday, October 15, 2004

Dear Senator Kennedy,

I am a constituent who called your Boston office yesterday (Thursday October 14, 2004) to inquire about your reaction to Minnesota Sen. Mark Dayton's decision to close his Washington D.C. office due to terrorist security concerns. I was transferred up the chain of command there and spoke to a second gentleman, who asked me if I thought we should "let them win, and close down Washington". I explained that my belief is that there is no "them", but that the 9-11 attacks were perpetrated by a criminal element within our government who wished to create an excuse to take away our civil liberties at home and also to go to war abroad.

This would be very-very similar to the "Operation Northwood's" plan submitted by the then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff L.L. Lemnitzer and soundly rejected by your HEROIC brother!

Your staff member then restated my 9-11 position, as if to be clear, to which I responded "yes absolutely". He then cut my call short as if my position indicated mental unbalance on my part. I did not get a chance to point out that Stanley Hilton, Senator Bob Dole's former Chief of Staff has not only stated the same position, but has initiated a law suit against those he believes makes up said criminal element. Ray McGovern, Ronald Reagan's former Chief CIA liaison officer, has also bravely gone on the record and stated not only that our government was complicit in the 9-11 attacks but that we may soon experience a "real or staged terrorist attack in order to postpone the elections". The FEMA operation CERT (Community Emergency Response Training) will culminate with a "mock attack" drill to respond to. I find it curious that this "mock attack" is scheduled for election day! This brings to my mind the coincidental fact that NORAD stood down on 9-11 for the first time in its history due to a "mock terrorist attack" drill where planes were used to crash into buildings!

Please go on the record and support Senator Dayton, as your colleague Senator Byrd has.

West Virginia Senator Byrd has said, "Senator Dayton took this precautionary step based on his conscience and his responsibility to his staff," said Sen. Robert Byrd, an eight-term Democratic senator from West Virginia. "I commend him."

Most Respectfully,

Kevin Clifford Meagher

Ubiquitous Mediocrity for President!

Wage Slavery for Vice!
Crush the peoples’ will to power under penny-promises and coddling programs paid for by the toils of their own slavery! Make them pay for the maintenance of their cozy ineptitude with taxes and call it Free Public Services! Soften them up with pastel social reforms and economic initiatives of the trendiest academic vomit! Give them their subsidized petroleum injections and socialized health care treatments! Give the people all the things they want! Help them! Aid them! Spoil them with the hand of your ability and wealth! Let them feel every comfort and every consolation and let them have every need gratified until there are no needs left! Altruism! Yes! Altruism is the force to purge away the parasites! Selfishness only a virtue for those who participate in the Great Work! Choke them! Gag them! Drown the crippled spectators in the mother’s milk and seductive luxury of guilty desires! Give them fashionably pandering illusions of division, superiority and hate! Yes! You must sew equality into worthlessness, happiness into animosity, and calculated rebellion into the hem-seams of the world’s cultural fabric! Division by every meaningless difference: class, race, sex, and creed! Division by any self-sustaining means! Splinter them into groups large enough to maintain the delusion of safety, but small enough to distract them with continual blame-games, lest they realize the true cause of their ever-strangling terror! Assign motives and displaced meanings to facts and fictions and feed the 451 Fahrenheit auto-lobotomy of newspeak and political correction! Support the excision of faith in favor of empty hope, and in everything you do teach them to value the base of the inhibited commoner over the apex of the fervid achiever! Give them all the tools and all the means to shackle themselves to long and painful ruin in panic-riddled self-destruction! May they reach up and feel their glorious thorny crown sinking in, tearing down and sucking dry the modern bourgeois created as hoards for the tools of Armageddon! May the parasites never know the full weight and true taste of Wealth or Happiness! When finally the masses seek refuge from the looting, rioting, brutish storm of the world’s largest survival game, then will be the time for the Demolican Party to put everything back the way it ought to be -- Master and Servant.

follow the money

sauceruney pointed me towards this
Pat Robertson's Operation Blessing--despite having recently been investigated by the State of Virginia for misusing relief funds to haul equipment for Robertson's for-profit diamond mining firm--was one of the first organizations to receive a faith-based grant. Robertson scored $500,000, renewable for three years, for a total of $1.5 million. The money pays for Operation Blessing to offer technical assistance to smaller faith-based outfits so they can compete for federal dollars of their own--and given that Robertson has disparaged several religious faiths as "aberrant" and insisted they not be considered for federal support, he'll likely use the $1.5 million to leverage grants for like-minded evangelicals. Chuck Colson--who had legal troubles of his own stemming from Watergate--was another significant beneficiary, through his evangelical organization Prison Fellowship Ministries, which was chosen by the faith-based office as one of only four national partners for a $22.5 million workplace re-entry program for ex-offenders. No direct funding from the faith-based office has gone to a single non-Christian religious organization, whether Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist or Sikh.

and then I see this, (via witchvox of course): A Devil's Sabbath: Halloween on Sunday Troubles Some Across the South
"It's a day for the good Lord, not for the devil," said Barbara Braswell, who plans to send her 4-year-old granddaughter Maliyah out trick-or-treating in a princess costume on Saturday instead.

Some towns around the country are decreeing that Halloween be celebrated on Saturday to avoid complaints from those who might be offended by the sight of demons and witches ringing their doorbell on the Sabbath.

    seizure alert animals

    y'all remember Pinky, PKD's cat what saved his kid?
    Over the last decade a new kind of service animal has emerged. Seizure alert dogs warn people with epilepsy of an oncoming attack minutes—sometimes hours—before it occurs. This allows the person time to take seizure blocking medication, get to a safe place, or call for assistance.
    How dogs detect an oncoming seizure in a human is a mystery. Some trainers and researchers think they detect subtle changes in human behavior or scent before an episode occurs. There are no scientific studies, however, to prove these theories. Trainers also believe the behavior is not breed, age or gender specific in dogs.

    Seizure alert dogs are born with this remarkable ability.
  • source
  • met one of these dogs meownself - he was able to detect epileptic attacks in other dogs as well as people & was a guide dog as well

    cats can do this too, as in pkd's son's case, or like this reference I found:
    "Oberon was a seizure-alert cat for me... He & I had a special understanding because we both deal(t) with chronic pain (he had arthritis). He would alert me before I had a seizure or migraine aura."

    don't fear this, stop it | mefi

    Kathleen Yurica, founder of the Yurica Report which, like Theocracy Watch, monitors the American religious right writes "Since the writing and posting of my essay, The Despoiling of America in February 2004, there is more and more evidence that not only has a cultural war been launched, but that the plotters are winning it....First the hard right dominionists took over the Southern Baptist Convention with its 16 million members and a fortune in corporate businesses. Then they took over the Republican Party...they are moving to limit the power of the Supreme Court. Now there is evidence dominionists are trying to take over the U. S. military

    ....Americans and the mainstream media have been very slow in catching on to the fact that we are in a war — a war that is cultural, religious and political, a war that uses stealth and deception and the rules of engagement written by the enemies to representative democracy. Unless Americans wake up, we could lose that war."

  • The Council for National Policy (CNP) was founded in 1981 when Timothy LaHaye (author of the Left Behind series) became the organization's first president. LaHaye is credited with the idea of the organization. The CNP has been cloaked in secrecy since its inception. The organization holds three meetings each year to plan the strategy for implementing its agenda. The activists meet with their financial backers who put up the money to execute the agenda of the institution. The membership list and any speeches made to the members are kept in strict secrecy. White House officials have appeared before the group, including President Bush, but their remarks have been held in secrecy. source

    Colorado Prosecutor Decides Against Charges in Organ Donation Case

    County Coroner Mark Young last week ruled Rardin died from "removal of his internal organs by an organ recovery team." He said two western Colorado hospitals failed to properly declare the man brain dead before his heart and other organs were removed.
    In a statement Tuesday, Young questioned the fairness of the review and complained that he was not allowed to present any findings to the panel.

    Our missionTo understand how and, equally importantly, why we search. The history of human awareness of the universe has brought a steady increase in our desire to find the roots of our existence and to understand how humans fit into the cosmos. We now stand at the thresthold of determining how life arose on this planet, and of applying what we know about life on Earth to our quest for life on planets that orbit other stars. But we should pause to ask some key questions: Why do we search? How has the search for our origins, and for evidence of our cosmic kin, proceeded in the past? And what does the search for extra-terrestrial life tell us about our attitude toward the universe around us?

Radiologists place the helmet -- which resembles an oversized beauty-salon hair dryer -- over a patient's head while he or she sits in a chair.

    Awakening the Goddess Columbia

    There was indeed a preponderance of "Masons" involved on both sides of the conflict (Washington, Lafayette and Cornwallis all belonged to the same regimental lodge), but the current that informed the deeper matters, such as the alignments in Washington City, the District of Columbia, was only superficially "Masonic."

    The three intellects most involved with the spiritual meaning of America were Washington, Jefferson and Franklin, an example of the wide range of "Masons" at the time. ..

    All three saw "America" as a kind of magickal future for the human race, when the archetypes that had been mediated by King and Church would be democratically available to all citizens. This would in fact create, if successful, a kind of psychic protection against "tyranny." No king or demagogue could grab the symbolic current of a freely archetypal democracy and make it subservient to his will.

    To that end, the goddess Columbia was created. The creation of a divine archetype is a very high-level magickal affair that is not undertaken lightly. Yet, that's just what these three magicians, with help from a few others, actually did.

    In the late 18th and early 19th century, a stream of images crystallized the goddess form into "Columbia." The ideas that animated her can best be seen by her attributes, that is the objects or symbols that are displayed with her. She is most often shown with an eagle, broken chains and pottery, a cornucopia, images of George Washington, a laurel wreath, a liberty pole and cap, a liberty tree, an olive branch, a rattlesnake, a shield and a stone tablet.

    rare US coins: Immunis Columbia 1787
    Obverse: The Goddess of Liberty, seated upon a globe, facing right; in her fully extended left hand she balances the scales of justice; the right hand supports a liberty staff, bearing a flag and crowned with a cap. Legend: "IMMUNIS COLUMBIA." Exergue: 1787.

    "For WOLFSBAYNE, we’ve assembled a topnotch cast and crew and a solid script filled with interesting characters," Dixon tells Fango. "It’s an adult-driven horror film loaded with scares, suspense and gore."

    "It’s an exciting story that’s based on actual historical events," O’Rear adds. "The same year [1590] that the Diet of Augsburg gave Christians license to exterminate gypsies is the same year in history that the first werewolf trial and religious persecution took place. In the WOLFSBAYNE script, we thought it would be fascinating to explore what would happen if werewolves teamed with gypsies to wage war against the church."

    After Trio Of Explosions, Scientists Say Supernova Is Imminent

    Three powerful recent blasts from three wholly different regions in space have left scientists scrambling. The blasts, which lasted only a few seconds, might be early alert systems for star explosions called supernovae, which could start appearing any day...

    The trio of bursts from the past few weeks has the potential of settling two long-standing debates. Some scientists say X-ray flashes are different beasts all together, not related to gamma-ray bursts and massive star explosions. Detecting a supernova in the region where the X-ray flash appeared would refute that belief, instead confirming the connection between the two. Follow-up observations of the September 24 burst, named GRB040924 for the date it was observed, are already solidifying the theory of a cosmic explosion continuum from X-ray flashes up through gamma ray bursts.
