Yahoo! News Full Coverage - World - Turmoil at CIA As Goss Lays Down the Law

probably want to keep an eye on the creeping tides as well:
Lieberman said Sunday that the conference committee "put a lot of [Sensenbrenner's] proposals in there" and that others are "unnecessary or irrelevant."

"I believe the president wants this bill, and I know he's taken some steps to bring it about," Lieberman said. "The reality is that with a majority of the members of the House ready to vote for this bill, the speaker refused to call a roll call."

"We've got a week to try to bring this bill to a vote, and I think the president clearly wants it," Lieberman added. "I can't believe the speaker, who also wants this bill, is not even going to call it. The speaker has inadvertently made a non-partisan matter into a partisan matter."

Sensenbrenner said he only wanted to "do it right and ... do it completely." (source)
it's gonna pass of course - right now it's just about how much power gets c³ into one individual - maybe someone like col. ripper or get Lieutenant Colonel Jim Channon out of retirement.

Willis said the pastor told him he knew his actions toward the women were wrong and he "wouldn't do it again."

some thoughts on seidr

first, is this seidr? Seidr Craft:The true art of Seidr lies in the ability to create shapes in your head and impress them on the outside world.

I don't think so...

Freyja was originally the norse goddess who used seidr. This site seems closer to the mark, but still confuses some of the basics: Freyja as her brother Frey is though to have originally been a fertility goddess, but there are no sources suggesting that she was called on to bring fruitfulness to fields or wombs. She is rather a goddess of riches, whose tears are gold and whose daughters are precious objects. Freyja taught the gods to use seidr, magic.

no, she only taught Odin seidr. she taught the rest of the gods the charms and spells of the Vanir, which isn't the same thing at all.

seidr then appears to be intimately bound up with both the shamanic initiation both freyja and odin undertook, and to be tied directly into sexual magic.

jodie forrest's article on freyja seems to come closest: Freyja was the patron goddess of the Norse seers called volvas,or seidkonas, who practiced a form of magic called seidr. Seidr means 'spell' or 'enchantment', and also,'boiling' or 'seething'. It could include sex magic, prophecy, shapeshifting, sendings, curses, fettering opponents, communicating with Elves or the dead, healing, midwifery, vision quests, giving council, and the use of spirit animals... Seidr, however, was mostly performed by women. Odin was the only god who practiced it, and, again, he learned it from Freyja, acquiring traits that were perhaps originally hers.

I started wondering about this when I tried to figure out if frey & freyja correspond somehow to the kaos-babalon/156 current. In fact, near as I can make out from the eddas the only male to use seidr is odin (then again I don't read norse, just translations and myth stuff)

personally I suspect seidr was a masturbatory practice using various substances coating a dildo or buttplug while laying on a high platform - which would account for snorri's note on seidr where he says "the use of this magic is accompanied by so great a degree of effemination (ergi) that men were of the opinion that they could not give themselves up to it without shame, so that it was to the priestesses that it was taught" (source)

you get that? seidr isn't another name for shamanism or the underlying magical paradigm of chaos magic.

Gray is too a natural color: Some ink for a 70s man

I called for an appointment. The fellow asked me what type of tattoo I had in mind. ''A name with a flower under it,'' I answered.

There was a pause before he replied, ''We discourage people from getting names on their bodies. They break up and they're stuck with a name they don't like or may even hate.''

''Well, she's my wife,'' I replied.

''How long have you been married?'' he asked.

''Forty-eight years,'' I replied. I guess I don't sound old over the telephone.

After another pause he said, ''Well, I guess it's probably OK. Looks like you're in for the long haul.''

''It sure looks that way,'' I agreed as he gave me an appointment.

How the Raich v. Ashcroft federal medical cannabis lawsuit born, and who is involved

November 29, 2004 at 10:00am the U.S. Supreme Court will Hear this landmark Medical Cannabis Case Involving the Federal Government’s Persecution of Severely ill Patients and Caregivers

Angel McClary Raich and Diane Monson are the first medical cannabis patients in US history to get a Preliminary Injunction against the Federal Government regarding the use of medical cannabis
yahoo story:
"I really hope and pray the justices allow me to live," said Raich as she crammed a blend of a marijuana variety known as "Haze X" into a contraption that vaporized it inside large balloons.

She said the outcome of the case will determine whether her "husband will have a wife," her "children a mother..."

Raich, whose legal team includes her husband, Robert, said she hopes the chemotherapy Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist is undergoing for thyroid cancer "would soften his heart about the issue."

"I think," she said, "he would find that cannabis would help him a lot."

This is a site devoted to the work and teachings of Amado Crowley.

Amado Crowley is the illegitimate son of Aleister Crowley and was trained by his father. He is however an Occult Master in his own right and has been guiding students for over 40 years.
It isn’t much fun being Aleister Crowley’s son. If it had been up to me, I’d have chosen Madame Blavatsky, who did at least look cuddlesome. My mother had her whims, though, and I count myself lucky not to be more closely related to Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra or even Tom Jones. She liked them all. Almost anyone would have been better than Aleister, because he has brought me sorrow, ill will and a thankless job that earns me much resent-ment.

quotes from An Interview with Thomas Ligotti

People will accept a short horror story that ends badly. They won’t accept this in a horror novel… not after they’ve read so many hundreds of pages. Horror stories in the short form are like campfire tales or urban legends that are just a way of saying “Boo.” They have nothing to do with the real world in the minds of most readers.

Fiction can’t be subversive. If the reader feels threatened, then he’ll stop reading. The reader will only continue reading if he is being entertained. Subversion in any art form is impossible. Even nonfiction can’t be subversive. It may be used to serve some person or group’s preconceived purposes, usually to gain power, but its ideas will be recast and deliberately skewed.

ligotti is right fiction isn't subversive nothing is subversive that requires submersion of conscious thought into it's matrix because you're conscious of what you're choosing to experience. the only things that can be subversive are those things of which you remain unaware. music, film, and perhaps a novel along the lines of that the author in stephen king's bag of bones wrote, in which the author codes messages into the text subconsciously through word choice and placement (except I've tried that myself & it usually turns the flow into mud.)
Mental illness will remain taboo until it becomes universal. Not that it isn’t already universal from a certain perspective. But the very existence of the mentally and emotionally perturbed is a genuine threat to the socioeconomic system in which we are imprisoned.

The Science Behind Pornography Addiction

yes, erototoxins
it's a sciencishy word, cause it's got all those o's in there. erototoxin.
so bad, it even subverts the first amendment:
An offensive strategy should be planned, mandating law enforcement collection of all pornography data at crime sites and judges, police, lawyers and law schools should receive training in the hard data of sexology fraud and erototoxins as changing brains absent informed consent.... Congress should also remove the authority of so-called sexology institutes--most of whom are pornography grantees--to confer professional credentials and serve as expert witnesses.... Thanks to the latest advances in neuroscience, we now know that pornographic visual images imprint and alter the brain, triggering an instant, involuntary, but lasting, biochemical memory trail, arguably, subverting the First Amendment by overriding the cognitive speech process.
(she must be right she wrote a .pdf)
The internet is dangerous because it removes the inefficiency in the delivery of pornography, making porn much more ubiquitous than in the days when guys in trench coats would sell nudie postcards, Satinover said. source

Dolphins Protect New Zealand Swimmers from Shark

Lifesavers Rob Howes, his 15-year-old daughter Niccy, Karina Cooper and Helen Slade were swimming 300 feet off Ocean Beach near Whangarei on New Zealand's North Island when the dolphins herded them -- apparently to protect them from a shark.

"They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing tight circles around us," Howes told the New Zealand Press Association (NZPA).

Howes tried to drift away from the group, but two of the bigger dolphins herded him back just as he spotted a nine-foot great white shark swimming toward the group.

the Weldon amendment

...an extraordinary sneak attack on women's rights and a disgraceful display of ideology over health."
"This language is a radical change in policy that the House has not debated on the floor, and the Senate has never considered, debated, or voted on. Republicans simply slipped it into the appropriations bill when they thought no one was looking.
"If a hospital, health insurance company, or doctor opposes Roe v. Wade, they could simply ignore it. Ignore it. This is the law of the land. A Constitutional right could simply be ignored."

Flexing post-election muscle, the Senate Republican leadership has just inserted into a must-pass $388 billion omnibus spending bill, an anti-abortion provision that could have broad reach...allowing hospitals and other healthcare providers to duck a responsibility to provide abortion services across the country. This won't stop people with money from getting abortions; this will only affect those women least able to expand their families.

Today, many carillons have fallen into disrepair or are simply no longer played because of lack of funding or interest.

Those carillons that can still be heard are all funded by government agencies, institutions or through an endowment fund provided by a generous benefactor.

Cast in Bronze is the only musical act in history utilizing the carillon that sustains itself solely by live performances and recording sales. It receives no financial assistance from any other source.

The creator of Cast in Bronze hopes that his one man crusade will preserve an instrument and art form from extinction.

Excerpt from a letter by Crowley to Karl Germer

The difference between A A and the O.T.O. is very clear and simple. The A A is a sempiternal institution and entirely secret. There is no communication between its members. Theoretically, a member knows only the superior who introduced him, and any person whom he himself has introduced. The Order is run on purely spiritual lines.
The Object of membership is also entirely simple. The first objective is the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. The next objective, omitting considerations for the present of the 6 = 5, and the 7 = 4 degrees, is the crossing of the Abyss, and the attainment of mastership of the Temple. This is described very fully especially in Liber 418...
A.'.A.'. :..it stands by itself as a body similar to Freemasonry, but involving acceptance of a social and economic system which is intended to put the world on its feet. There is also, of course, the secret of the IXth which is, so to say, the weapon which they may use to further these purposes.
To show you the difference, Theodor Reuss was Supreme Head of the O.T.O., but was not even probationer of the A A.

Code king cracks monumental mystery

A secret inscription said to lead to the Holy Grail has been unravelled, reports Nick Fielding
Now, at last, the mystery of inscriptions carved on the Shepherds’ Monument at Shugborough Hall, ancestral home of the earls of Lichfield, has been solved — well, possibly.

Following a competition launched earlier this summer, some of the most convincing explanations for the inscribed picture in reverse and a seemingly random series of letters will be presented this week by Bletchley Park, the centre that made its name cracking Hitler's Enigma code.

Bletchley itself is cautiously supporting a theory from a professional codebreaker whose job does not permit him to disclose his identity. He argues that the inscription points to the hiding place of a stone tablet handed down from the Old Testament prophet Jacob, which was a talisman for a secret society known as the Priory of Sion.

Front de Libération des Nains de Jardin in Berlin

Thieves have stolen scantily clad garden gnomes from a gnome peepshow in an eastern German amusement park, park manager Frank Ullrich said on Thursday.

"The gnomes display naked body parts -- the same ones you'd expect to see in a human peep show," Ullrich said of his missing stars.

The adults-only attraction at Dwarf-Park Trusetal, where visitors peep through keyholes to see the saucy German miniatures in compromising poses, was smashed open early on Thursday morning.

wait, the democrats discovered that two republicans had given themselves the ability to look at anyone's tax return in america, but those republicans say they don't want that power, and they have no idea how they've acquired that power?
After the House passed the spending bill, Democratic Senate staffers discovered that it contained a provision allowing the chairmen of the House and Senate appropriations committees, or their agents, to examine the tax returns of any American.

The two lawmakers who would have gained that power -- Sen. Ted Stevens, an Alaska Republican, and Rep. Bill Young, a Florida Republican -- both said they wouldn't use it, and the Senate approved a resolution deleting the language.

Frist and outgoing Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, a Democrat from South Dakota, agreed to hold the bill until the House could pass a similar fix, which could not happen before Wednesday.

Schumer said Pelosi told him she planned to hold up consideration of the bill in the House "until we find out who put this provision in."

Posthuman Blues kicks ass

I've heard of these passing over wichita during 97 or so, headed toward the air force base there from a few guys who'd been sitting out in their back yard while drinking beer & listening to a baseball game:
"It was heading straight north. The right edge was over that tree." Las Vegas journalist Cateland White was in the backyard of her southeast Las Vegas home last year when she saw a dark behemoth fly over. She drew a picture and described, "It was triangular shaped with rectangular reflectors. No interior light at all. By the time it got out of sight, it was 5-8 minutes. It was so slow, I couldn't figure out how it was staying in the air."

White called the police, who connected her to Nellis Air Force Base, which is the direction the triangle seemed headed. "The man said, 'I don't want you to talk about this anymore, and you're gonna forget it.' I said, 'Look buddy, I'm not drinking, I'm not on drugs, something is headed for your base.' Then he got real terse and said, 'Mam, I'm gonna tell you one more time and this is the last time I'm gonna tell you. Forget what you saw and don't tell anybody.' At that point, I was freaked," described White.

The frequent proximity of triangle sightings to air force bases led NIDS to conclude two years ago that the craft must be part of a secret military project. But in the two years since, the triangles have become so prevalent over big cities and interstate highways that the theory doesn't fit anymore.
magnetic levitation? giant fucking lifters? These here sound like scramjets:
The boom that was heard across north-east Norfolk in the UK today was not caused by a British aircraft, according to a British Ministry of Defense spokesman. Lt. Col. Stuart Green of the Ministry said that the sound, which rocked the whole region at noon on November 7 was not made by "one of ours."

He thought that it could have been made by an American or other supersonic plane, but had no information about any such overflights. Military regulations prohibit the generation of sonic booms over Britain except in unusual circumstances, and it would not be normal for the aircraft of any country to do this without informing British authorities.

In the US, the sounds have been more frequent. In Richmond, they have been so intense that, according to an Unknowncountry reader, a video taken during one episode shows that the camera shakes from the power of the sound. The sounds generally take place late at night in the Richmond area, and local authorities are at a loss to explain them.
is there any doubt it's us? as in US? look back to tia or the new gig:
Advocates like Robert J. Stevens, chief executive of the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the nation’s biggest military contractor, said he envisioned a “highly secure Internet in which military and intelligence activities are fused,” shaping 21st-century warfare in the way that nuclear weapons shaped the cold war.

Every member of the military would have “a picture of the battle space, a God’s-eye view,” he added. “And that’s real power.”

Pro or con, the ideals of this new warfare are reportedly driving many of the Pentagon’s spending plans for the next 10 to 15 years. The grail: sending secret intelligence and stratagems instantly to soldiers in battle, making the military a faster, fiercer force against a faceless foe.

Keith & Kenneth scrying high

It is a well-documented fact that for a period of time in the late Sixties, Kenneth Anger was the official astrologer and flavor of the month for the Rolling Stones. ...

Keith owned a large black alchemist's stone, smooth and shiny, with a depth that depending on how stoned one was could produce a hallucinogenic effect. Both men were using opium and perhaps a bit of LSD and Keith decided to work on a song that had been overwhelming his subconscious. He told Kenneth "I'm writing this song for you although after it's finished the tabloids will say it was for Anita. But you will always know better."

As Keith worked on committing this tune to paper, the two men, very high, began staring into the onyx stone and it was at this point that Keith remarked he was seeing drops of blood, bright red drops of human blood accentuated by the velvet blackness of the stone. Keith then went into a vision and told Kenneth that at the beginning of the New Millennium, a terrible catastrophe would occur. He saw high towers raining blood but could make no more sense of it except to say it was in the distant future, and that the 21st Century would have a very dark cloud over its beginnings....

Flash forward to Tuesday morning, September 11th. Kenneth awoke at 6:30 AM (Los Angeles time) and as was his ritual, welcomed the sun. He felt compelled to go to his Aleister Crowley Tarot deck... As he laid the cards before him, The Tower appeared followed ultimately by the Death card.

Kenneth has never owned a television in his life. But at that moment he knew he had to be near one. He raced down the street to a little market where he purchased his daily breakfast of freshly squeezed orange juice and knew the owners kept a small television over the cash register. It was there in the early hours of September 11th that Kenneth Anger realized the prophecy in Keith Richards' landmark tune that achieved worldwide acclaim as...

Is Transhumanism the World's Most Dangerous Idea?

Francis Fukuyama thinks so, but the only real danger it poses is to reactionary bioconservatism
...Just as anesthesia, antibiotics and global communication networks transformed our sense of the human condition in fundamental ways, so too we can anticipate that our capacities, hopes and problems will change if the more speculative technologies that transhumanists discuss come to fruition. But apart from vague feelings of disquiet, which we may all share to varying degrees, what specific argument does Fukuyama advance that would justify foregoing the many benefits of allowing people to improve their basic capacities?

Fukuyama's objection is that the defense of equal legal and political rights is incompatible with embracing human enhancement: "Underlying this idea of the equality of rights is the belief that we all possess a human essence that dwarfs manifest differences in skin color, beauty and even intelligence. This essence, and the view that individuals therefore have inherent value, is at the heart of political liberalism. But modifying that essence is the core of the transhumanist project."

His argument thus depends on three assumptions: (1) there is a unique "human essence"; (2) only those individuals who have this mysterious essence can have intrinsic value and deserve equal rights and (3) the enhancements that transhumanists advocate would eliminate this essence. From this, he infers that the transhumanist project would destroy the basis of equal rights.

Of mice, men and in-between

in 20 years your computer will be your body and your pets will be your network
Chimeras are allowing scientists to watch, for the first time, how nascent human cells and organs mature and interact — not in the cold isolation of laboratory dishes but inside the bodies of living creatures. Some are already revealing deep secrets of human biology and pointing the way toward new medical treatments.

But with no federal guidelines in place, an awkward question hovers above the work: How human must a chimera be before more stringent research rules should kick in? ...

"Chimeras are not as strange and alien as at first blush they seem," said Henry Greely, a law professor and ethicist at Stanford University who has reviewed proposals to create human-mouse chimeras there.

But chimerism becomes a more sensitive topic when it involves growing entire human organs inside animals. And it becomes especially sensitive when it deals in brain cells, the building blocks of the organ credited with making humans human.

In experiments like those, Greely told the academy last month, "there is a nontrivial risk of conferring some significant aspects of humanity" on the animal.

Greely and his colleagues did not conclude that such experiments should never be done. Indeed, he and many other philosophers have been wrestling with the question of why so many people believe it is wrong to breach the species barrier.
& after mice, the humanzee:
Imagine, said Robert Streiffer, a professor of philosophy and bioethics at the University of Wisconsin, a human-chimpanzee chimera endowed with speech and an enhanced potential to learn — what some have called a "humanzee."

"There's a knee-jerk reaction that enhancing the moral status of an animal is bad," Streiffer said. "But if you did it, and you gave it the protections it deserves, how could the animal complain?"

Unfortunately, said Harvard political philosopher Michael J. Sandel, speaking last fall at a meeting of the President's Council on Bioethics, such protections are unlikely.

"Chances are we would make them perform menial jobs or dangerous jobs," Sandel said. "That would be an objection."

MSNBC - Addiction to porn destroying lives, Senate told

...compare effect on brain to that of heroin or crack ... as in
Mary Anne Layden, co-director of a sexual trauma program at the University of Pennsylvania, said pornography’s effect on the brain mirrors addiction to heroin or crack cocaine. She told of one patient, a business executive, who arrived at his office at 9 a.m. each day, logged onto Internet porn sites, and didn’t log off until 5 p.m.
& that's like heroin or crack how? how many crackheads even make it into the office? they're morons. & wouldn't this fall under some sort of sexual harrassment policy in the workplace?

but wait, they've discovered hentai...
Frederick Lane III, a lawyer and author of “Obscene Profits: The Entrepreneurs of Pornography in the Cyber Age,” said it is inevitable that hentai will create controversy in Western societies, given that "the Japanese culture is much more accepting of violence in sexual setting." It also is certain to push political hot buttons "because of the greater tendency for kids to get hold of it," he said.

But creators and distributors of such material cannot be prosecuted under child pornography statutes because the U.S. Supreme Court threw out the Child Pornography Protection Act, a 1996 law banning “virtual’ child porn.

“The court said the reason that a computer-generated or animated image is not prosecutable under the Constitution is that there is no harm to an individual,” said Lane, who also writes an adult industry legal blog.

Obscenity charges could be brought against the operators of toon porn sites, Lane noted, though he rates that possibility as unlikely.

House Republicans Change Rules to Protect DeLay

On a voice vote, the House Republican Conference changed a rule that required party leaders to step down if indicted for any crime that carries a prison sentence of two or more years.
Now other Republican leaders would have 30 days to review a felony indictment and make recommendations to all House Republicans about whether the person should step aside.

``We are trying to protect members of our leadership from any crackpot attorney taking on a political agenda,'' said Henry Bonilla, a Texas Republican who drafted the rules change....
House Republicans are backtracking on their pledge to raise ethical standards when they took over the House, said House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland.

``Republicans said their objective was to raise the ethical standards,'' Hoyer said. ``This seems to me to be moving in the opposite direction.''

The House ethics committee last month said DeLay violated House rules by contacting the Federal Aviation Administration to help track a plane carrying Texas Democratic lawmakers outside the state -- to avoid a quorum for legislative action --during the redistricting battle in the Texas statehouse. It was one of three admonishments from the committee he faced within a week.

Coil's Jhonn Balance RIP | NIN connection

from the Nine Inch Nails fan site, Theninhotline.com:
"On the evening of Saturday, November 13th, Jhonn Balance of Coil died. Details can be found at Threshold House. Though my only encounter with Balance was receiving an email from him through the Analogue Heaven mailing list, his remix work with Nine Inch Nails played a pretty big part in me becoming such a fan. Coil were signed to Nothing Records, but due to some rumored Interscope cock-blocking, never released any albums on the label. Coil contributed many remixes to the Nine Inch Nails discography, including the Fixed remix of Gave Up, Closer (Precursor) (which is seeing a remastered release with the Deluxe Edition of The Downward Spiral, and was the theme song for the movie Se7en), The Downward Spiral (the bottom), and several other tracks on Further Down The Spiral."

Church fury at Damned's switch-on

Captain Sensible is due to join Father Christmas and city mayor Roger Dryden for the festive switch-on.

But the decision has led to fury among church leaders.
"It is not appropriate for Christmas," said Reverend Stephen Leeke, of St Martin's Church in Cambridge.

"They are a punk rock band with very doubtful lyrics."
A spokeswoman for The Damned said the group found it laughable that the church has decided to criticise them for something as trivial as turning on Christmas lights.

Study Launch Date Suspended Until Early 2005
Offers Public Comment Period
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), led by Bush appointees, is seeking input on a new proposed study in which infants in participating low income families will be monitored for health impacts as they undergo exposure to known toxic chemicals over the course of two years. The study entitled Children’s Environmental Exposure Research Study (CHEERS) will look at how chemicals can be ingested, inhaled or absorbed by children ranging from babies to 3 years old.

For taking part in these studies, each family will receive $970, a free video camera, a T-shirt, and a framed certificate of appreciation. ...

The study layout does not require that participants increase their chemical use, but does mandate that chosen applicants will need to demonstrate that they do regularly use toxic chemicals in and around the home.

Take Action vs College Radio

americanpatriot2004 writes
Recently, a band by the name of Skinny Puppy has been slandering the president on their tour. In their latest shows they have staged beheadings similar to the ones in Iraq. If that wasn't already tasteless and disgusting enough the vocalist from the band proceeds to take the hoods off of the terrorists revealing them to be Bush and Cheney. After hearing this I sent out letters to college radio stations asking them not to play this band anymore.
whoo hoo! skinny puppy's being protested! there's a certain inevitability about it I suppose. at the link there's comments & a list of college radio stations in the united states.

Digital Falcon

Digital "Wing" of New Falcon Publications
Why "Digital Falcon"? Well, as you may have noticed, we've been producing more and more digital products. Audio CDs were just the beginning. Soon we will release our first DVD (it's from the mad Dr. Hyatt). Soon you will be able to download a variety of ebooks, MP3s,video on demand and more. (In the meantime, check out the Free Stuff to the right.) Does that mean we are moving away from traditional books? Hell, no---just take a look at our upcoming titles. Think of Digital Falcon as our means of expanding into new media----so we can offend even more people...in more ways...

among the articles and reviews theres a good piece on valis but for fuck's sake doesn't anyone realize Radio Free Albumeth is more important than VALIS, especially nowadays..? & if you really want the headfuck look into the various accounts & descriptions he gives of The Owl in Daylight or The Dazzled Owl (there's at least three different descriptions he gives sacttered through his papers and interviews) and piece in the wierdness around disney & the bohemian grove's owl & maybe you might understand why PKD died before writing it. (cue underdrums) Me, I like UBIK - it's (arguably) the underlying work that seems to have mutated culture the most thematically. Clans is good too, but there's a short story of his that contains the real punch of the novel already, and it's energy is diffused as a result. crap babbliung&on&on..enow.

here, listen to PKD talk a bit about The Owl in Daylight - I collaged together two hours worth of interview into about 5 & a half minutes for Raido Kaos

Propaganda For Mutation

my key23 article , picked up by disinfo, and links even updated by alex burns. wow thanks!

Ritual, Magick & How Pagans will Save the World

Pagans are something unique, something that has never occurred before in the history of humanity. We ritualize in a way no one else has before us. We are the only culture I know of that, as a regular practice, composes and recomposes rituals ‘de novio’ and usually as one-offs.

No body else does this. In the west we only have dead ritual traditions, no body changes or innovates upon the classical body of ritual when they have one. Elsewhere among living ritual traditions variations are made in the classical forms by the priestfolk as required by conditions, yet always drawing upon and founded in precedence.

Our position is peculiar. We, the contemporary or Modern Pagans, inherited a body of theory and very little practice from the classical Pagans. We HAD to make it all up again and in the process discovered we could. And so we keep doing it. And this has some very interesting implications.

When people think of examples of a type or category of product, they think of a limited list (referred to as an evoked set). Any product included in an evoked set has mind share. For example, if you are concidering purchasing a college education, you have several thousand colleges to choose from. However your evoked set, those that you will consider, will probably be limited to about ten. Of these ten, the colleges that you are most familiar with will have the greatest proportion of your mind share.
here's a new drug:
A pill that helps you lose weight and quit smoking? That was amazing enough to capture headlines last week. But scientists say the experimental drug might be even more versatile, providing a new tool to help people stop abusing drugs and alcohol, too.

It’s called rimonabant, or Acomplia

Acomplia? as in AComplya

here's what it acts on:
Halting the brain's reward system...
Rimonabant’s versatility traces back to its effects on the brain’s reward system, circuitry that tells you to keep on doing something. Basically, it appears to help break the connection between an activity like smoking and the rewarding feeling it causes in the brain.

The body has its own marijuana-like substances called endocannabinoids, and they activate certain brain cells that in turn can lead to stimulation of the brain’s reward system. Pleasurable things like drinking alcohol are thought to activate a feeling of reward by acting through the endocannabinoid system.


Propaganda can be classified according to the source. White propaganda comes from an openly identified source. Black propaganda pretends to be from a friendly source, but is actually from an adversary. Gray propaganda pretends to be from a neutral source, but comes from an adversary.

a passage from Masks of the Illuminati by RAW

The fear of thunder as the origin of religion: Vico's theory two hundred years ago. The first men, huddled in caves, trembling before the angry roaroaroar of a force they cannot understand. Fear of the Lord: the hangman God of Rome and this Rev. Verey. And, from childhood, Mrs. Riordan's voice: "The thunder is God's anger at sinners, Jimmy." Signore Popper in Trieste asking why I still tremble at thunder: "How can a man with so much moral courage as you be frightened by a simple natural phenomenon?" Put that in the book. Have Einstein or Hunter, whatever I'll call him, say it to Stephen: natural phenomenon, F.I.A.T. What did I answer Popper? "You were not raised an Irish Catholic." Agenbite of inwit. Thor's hammer: the Norse feared it, also. Roaring growlruinboomdoom. "God's anger at sinners, Jimmy." Merde. Le mot juste de Canbronne. Conbronboomruinboom doom. A nightmare from which humanity must wake. Beginning when the first ape-like Finnegans or Goldbergs hid in awe from He Which Thundereth From On High. "Fear is the father of the gods": Lucretius. Panphage, indeed.

Christian school fires educator who says Jesus inspired him

I thought christian schools were against homosexual sadomasochist displays but:
Principal Steve Unfreid, who said he was inspired in his choice of disciplinary tactics by the actions of Jesus, asked teacher Joe Brost to whip him in front of two male students in the school's basement last month after the boys were caught kissing girls in the locker room for the second time in a week...

Since coming to the school as a teacher several years ago, he said, he pushed for the school to admit a married student, laid on hands in an effort to heal a girl basketball player's injured ankle, and has taken troubled students into his family's home.
good to know those kids are getting edumacated.

Archaeologists Uncover A Russian "Stonehenge"

"If we look at this archeological site as represented on a map, it will be a circle seven meters in diameter, marked with pillars, half a meter thick and the same distance apart from each other," says the expedition leader Ilya Akhmedov, who works in the Moscow Historical Museum's Archeological Monuments Department. "Here's a large rectangular hole and a pillar in the center of the circle. The wooden pillars have not survived, of course, but the large holes from which they once stuck out can be seen pretty clearly. Along the edges of the site there are two more holes."

Practical Applications of the Philosopher’s stone. For drunks.

Coming into this experiment, I had some doubts as to the methodology as well as the subjective manner in which the results would be judged, not to mention a health distrust for anyone who would voluntarily drink Vladimir vodka warm and straight.
Amazingly, though, after the 4th filtration, I came to a startling conclusion: The Filtered vodka tasted better than the control fluid (Ketel One). It was smoother, and had a very delicate aftertaste. Of course, people may claim that it is the aftertaste that is what really gives vodka its flavor, but if you’re drinking Vladimir, I certainly hope you weren’t drinking it for taste!
Now, filtering works. As fantastic and far-fetched as it seems, what you have after you’ve passed Vladimir through the Brita sufficiently is a fluid worthy of enjoying straight. In fact, some conjectured that it could be passed off as higher quality vodka, if you’re the sort of person who keeps empty Gray Goose bottle lying around.

Lab grows living leather jacket

yay. when's the vat-grown beef gonna be ready for the vegans?
Currently, the jacket is still so tiny (it's about 2 inches high and 1-and-a-half inches wide) it could only fit a mouse. It's creators, however, think it's weird that the general public might be grossed out, even though the jacket is made without hurting any animals at all. "...People were disturbed by our ethics of using living cells to grow living fabric, while the use of leather obtained from animals seems to be accepted without any concern for the well-being of the animals from which the skin has been removed."

Shamanism as Neurotheology and Evolutionary Psychology

pdf file
Shamanic universals involve psychophysiological dynamics of altered states of consciousness (ASCs) and visionary experiences, metaphoric representations produced through integration of innate representational modules, and rituals that produce psychophysiological healing responses. ASCs reflect natural brain processes involving systemic integrative conditions. Universal shamanic representations (e.g., animism, animal allies, and soul flight) use cross-modal integration of specialized innate modules and reflect fundamental aspects of the psychodynamics of self. These prelinguistic emotional, social, and mental processes use presentational symbolism that reflects fundamental structures of consciousness.

it goes on like that for a while

Paul Wellstone & JFK jr- assassinated?

Of course Senator Wellstone was assassinated. He publicly told constituents
shortly before his murder by small plane...that Cheney had ordered him to "fall
in or else." People in the area heard deafening electronic schreiks on their cellphones just before the plane crash. Equipment jam. Simple. "Investigators" were on the scene long before it would have been possible for them to drive that far...

On July 17th, 1997 when I saw the picture of pulverized debris from JFK Jr.'s plane
floating on the sea....then one pristine, intact piece of luggage...that started me wondering. That piece of perfect luggage meant perhaps, that the tail section/luggage compartment broke/blew off before it hit the water....

Why kill him? He was talking about running for the NY Senate seat...and would have been unbeatable. His magazine George was doing an in-depth piece on Massud, Israeli's spy organization and the NeoCon's best partner in crime. BFEE has been planning all of this since 1994. They wouldn't have wanted JFK Jr. with his magazine and him living right near the WTC when they knew damn well what was going down in 2001.

Living with PTSD

23% of American service personnel returning from Iraq are suffering PTSD
Think about that for a moment. We've had more than 200,000 people serving in Iraq. That means we have 46,000 veterans already who have come home to a new war, a lifelong war to retain their sanity. For each of them there will be
at least six family members and/or friends whose lives will be turned upside down by that new war. If statistics from Vietnam hold, fifteen thousand will have taken their own lives within five years, and another 4000 in the next five years.
Alcoholism and drug addiction will be common amongst them. For each of them there will be at least six family members and/or friends whose lives will be turned upside down. That brings us to a conservative 276,000 people who will be dealing with this first hand, and each of them will turn to six more people for support and help.
...don't know what else to say about PTSD except perhaps to give you a glimpse into my experience of it.

How Obvious Would It Have To Be

by Bill Gardiner who once served as an LDS Bishop, Seminary and Institute Instructor
Confounding the ability of church members to honestly look at such a question is the indoctrination process that begins in early “programming.” Throughout the Mormon experience comes the indoctrination of knowing. “I know the church is true” programming and a discouragement of questioning the truth of Mormon scriptures and leaders strongly inhibits the process of an honest and ongoing search for truth. Mormons are typically unable to see this in themselves. The ability to objectively see this in their experience runs contradictory to the programming of knowing. But if we were to discuss this in the context of another religion--for example The Jehovah’s Witnesses, then Mormons can clearly see the error in someone believing they know the truth and then shutting off the process of ongoing critical examination and continued searching. Such individuals are dismissed by Mormons as being closed-minded--all the while missing that very quality in themselves.

And of course the indoctrination process is what confounds the feeling experience method of truth. If I am a Jehovah’s Witness, and have been “programmed” to revere the founder Pastor William Russell as inspirational, it is likely that I will have strong feeling experiences about him and the doctrines he introduced. I will have been taught this is the Holy Ghost telling me what is truth. I know it is true because I have had this powerful warm feeling....

Once a person has been indoctrinated they have a very effective “filter” system that works when someone tries to tell them something contrary to what they've been indoctrinated in. They do not hear what is being said to them.

he even quotes E. Fromm: “The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers.”
found that while looking at this: notes on the genetic link between Masonic and Mormon ritual.. speaking of masons, the article goes on:
There was no effort in the early history of the church to conceal any similarities between Masonic rituals and the Mormon Temple Endowment. Indeed, men like Heber C. Kimball said that: “Bro Joseph Ses Masonary was taken from preasthood but has become degen[e]rated. But menny things are perfect.”

Early explanations of the similarities between Mormon Temple rites and Masonic rituals were therefore promulgated using the common myth that Masonic rituals dated back to the time of Solomon’s Temple. This explanation doesn’t make any sense given the fact that there is a thorough description of what was actually done in the early Judaic temples, with no evidence of anything even remotely close to the Masonic rituals ever being a part of such practices. Even Brigham Young conceded that while Solomon’s Temple was constructed for the purpose of giving endowments, they were not fully restored until Joseph introduced it.

alex jones reports on an indymedia story: Anti-war protest in L.A. gets response with tanks
Two armored tanks came to dispel the protest. It's unknown at the moment whether the protesters had permits, or what the rationale for bringing an armored response was by officials, but what kind of rationale could possibly merit this approach?

This is psychological warfare, the way they just drive up to watch a small gaggle of protesters and then drive off'. It's an LAV Marine Warrior tank, and the people in it are likely to be marines.... There are now claims that the marines were asking the protesters for directions as they were lost. Right. The most sophisticated vehicles on the planet with highly trained soldiers at the helm asking a group of anti-war protestors for directions?
he quotes:
Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the tanks, but police quickly cleared the street. The people continued to protest the presence of the tanks, but about ten minutes the tanks drove off. It is unclear as to why the tanks were deployed to this location. .more, with video.

Out of Compliance? Implementing the Infant Adoption Awareness Act

In January 2004, Charles Marquardt, the program coordinator and lead trainer for the Title X training program at the California Family Health Council (the largest Title X grantee in the nation), highlighted his concerns about the training experience in a seven-page letter to his federal regional health administrators. He wrote: "The trainer promoted tactics and techniques for attempting to persuade the client to choose adoption by (1) discouraging abortion as a viable option, (2) overly promoting adoption, (3) highlighting the difficulties [the] child will encounter if [a woman] should choose to raise it herself, and (4) encouraging counselor opinions in scenarios by having the counselor choose for the client the best option." ...

Marsha Gelt, from the Center for Health Training in Oakland, California, a regional training center for the Title X family planning program, said that those conducting the training she attended represented either Christian or Mormon adoption agencies (NCFA's key constituency). She was upset by the religious nature of the training, in part because government funding was being used to sponsor the training. Similarly, Marquardt noted that "no effort was made to provide balance to the overtly Christian tenor of the discussion" or "to correct the comments of participants who discussed the importance of placing children in 'good Christian homes.'" Related to this was the fact that many trainers and trainees were from crisis pregnancy centers or antichoice organizations, "creating an environment that seemed to barely tolerate those in the room who were pro-choice."

Internet buzz on vote fraud is dismissed
By Rick Klein, Globe Staff | November 10, 2004
In Holmes County, Florida, though nearly three-quarters of registered voters are Democrats, Bush wiped out Kerry, 6,410 to 1,810, in results that mirrored those in several other counties where optical-scan paper ballots were used. And in Florida's Broward County, after the first 32,000 absentee ballots were fed into the computer system, a software glitch caused additional ballots to be subtracted from vote totals, rather than added.

A week after Kerry conceded and Bush declared victory, those assertions and scores of others from New Mexico to North Carolina have kept alive fierce speculation that Bush's victory either wasn't real or wasn't as decisive as it seemed. With memories fresh from the 2000 irregularities, e-mails and Web postings accuse Republicans of stealing an election....

Still, with reports swirling on the Internet, six Democratic members of Congress have asked the Government Accountability Office to investigate. Leading academics have joined the fray as well, saying that the integrity and future of the nation's voting system demand a vetting of all claims.

Secret German Cult in Chile Breaks 43-Year Spell

...beatings to enforce discipline were widespread... some members were forced to take drugs to quell sex desires...
The sect came here in the 1960s following Paul Schaefer, a charismatic World War II German army nurse, who cult members thought was God on earth and who preached an unnamed religion that said harsh discipline would draw them closer to the supreme being...

The apocalyptic cult barred itself behind a perimeter fence guarded by cameras and motion detectors, and once even taunted police with Nazi salutes. A judge is probing reports it provided torture chambers for the secret police during Chile's 1973-1990 military dictatorship.

Schaefer came to Chile fleeing sex-abuse charges in Germany, and in 1961 founded Colonia Dignidad -- later renamed Villa Baviera.

Schaefer, now believed to be 81 and whose whereabouts are unknown, banned television and telephones and blotted references to love and sex out of the Bible. The cult lived frozen in time, singing German folk songs and working the fields wearing 1930s Bavarian peasant garb.
lovely - a pro-fascist cult to illustrate this very point

There is a media lockdown on the election fraud here. It was huge, and systemic, and they have been practicing for this for a few years, and replacing voting machines to allow it to happen.

Bush did not win the election.

Three congressmen, including the Detroit one, John Conyers, have called for a massive investigation by the Government Accounting Office. One of the Florida candidates has given evidence to the FBI about this, including how it was done, and who was involved. The main stream media has been shut down, they can't report it. There was a massive storming of the Ohio Capital Nov 3 by hundreds of people to protest the fraud, and it didn't make the papers.

I was good friends in college with one of the on-air reporters on National Public Radio who changed jobs after the bill clinton/monica lewinsky media circus. I emailed him to see if he could put the issue in front of an NPR reporter, maybe they could cover it.

This is what he sent back:
... And I know, the reporting in the U.S. has been dismal, not only at NPR but also the New York Times. I'll take a careful look at what you've got on your site. I'm sure I can't get anyone at NPR to pay attention. (I mean, one of the reasons I felt I couldn't stay there was that they covered Monica Lewinsky as if it were a legitimate subset of the Whitewater investigation.) They hammered Clinton and have given Bush a pass, all in the name of appearing non-partisan. In other words, I'm sure that the reason you're not hearing this stuff on NPR is not because they're unaware of it.

What I'm asking you to do is push to get this covered in your media at home. It's a start. We need world press on the situation here.

Blog about it. Spread it on other forums. I have the very beginnings of a summary on
my site but that's only the tip of the iceberg. The roughest estimate based on exit polling is that 8 million votes were manufactured, and this is in addition to the number of democrats that were not allowed to vote - which was huge.

And if anyone here, US citizen or not, wants to help in the effort to crunch numbers going down to the precinct level, they are asking for us to join as an army of statisticians and spread sheet geeks at www.blackboxvoting.org.

Some of this is covered in the votergate thread, but I know those of you who are sick of politics aren't reading that stuff anymore.

liz greene | fragments on Mary/Aphrodite

I think bastart's onto something. check this:
The 'good' end of the anima is the spiritual dimension of the woman, which is not incompatible with erotic feeling but which lifts consciousness out of its mundane rut and into a deepening and widening. The most transpersonal figure in our era for this pole of the axis is the figure of Mary. Wisdom and compassion belong to this pole of the axis. Another, older image for this inspiring face of the feminine is the postive face of Aphrodite, who brings sexual joy and opens the heart to beauty and grace...
we're definately missing beauty & grace in our culture
The dark or negative pole of the anima axis is the siren, who lures the ego down into chaos and madness and disintegration. Here the inspiration is worked through enchantment and seduction rather than through love and joy, and the result is the destruction of life rather than the expansion of it...
Mary is lopsided, in the sense that she has no erotic dimension. I am sure this has been a collective problem, ever since we got rid of foam-born Aphrodite. Mary embodies many positive functions of the anima, as spiritual guide and intercessor, and as the compassionate intermediary between humanity and the remoteness of God. The only trouble with Mary is that she has no body. Then all the sexuality drops down to the negative pole of the axis, to the siren who lures men to destruction....
To be spiritual and sexual at the same time is a big mouthful for the ego to swallow, and yet on the archetypal level there is no conflict. And it is completely indigestible if the ego is entrenched in a set of collective values which declare the twain shall never meet.

Face transplants technically feasible

(yeah, like in face/off)
LONDON, Nov. 19 - Face transplants are technically possible and could arguably be less difficult than reattaching a severed finger, surgeons said Wednesday, but they called for more research into the risks involved before they are attempted....

Dr. John Barker, a plastic surgeon at Louisville University in Kentucky, said his team is ready to perform the world’s first face transplant.

“We need to get across the complexities of this medical advance and dismiss the myths that have been reported — for example the first face transplant recipients will not necessarily look like the donor,” he said.

Transplanting the skin and underlying soft tissue from one individual to the facial structure of another would give an appearance that would be different from the donor and the recipient, he added in a statement.

by Nikola Tesla - a snippet:
"... As the first step toward this realization I conceived the following mechanism. Imagine a thermopile consisting of a number of bars of metal extending from the earth to the outer space beyond the atmosphere. The heat from below, conducted upward along these metal bars, would cool the earth or the sea or the air, according to the location of the lower parts of the bars, and the result, as is well known, would be an electric current circulating in these bars. The two terminals of the thermopile could now be joined through an electric motor, and, theoretically, this motor would run on and on, until the media below would be cooled down to the temperature of the outer space. This would be an inanimate engine which, to all evidence, would be cooling a portion of the medium below the temperature of the surrounding, and operating by the heat abstracted. ...

PORE Public Orgonomic Research Exchange

from the site:
Orgonomy is a science created by Dr. Wilhelm Reich who lived in Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, New York, and finally Rangeley, Maine from 1944-1957 until his death. Orgonomy covers many topics but begins with the theories of neurosis in humans as they are related to the natural flow of life energy being blocked in the body by traumatic experiences in life. Many also caused sexual impotency. Dr. Reich worked closely with Sigmund Freud during this work and the results are written in his books "The Function of the Orgasm - 1927" and "Character Analysis - 1933". Vegetative-therapy (Reichian therapy) was developed and created by Dr. Reich in the 1920's to 1930's and it is used in part by many of the current therapies practiced today such as gestalt therapy, bioenergetics, rolfing therapy, and primal scream therapy to name a few. His study of neurosis was applied to the masses in his work "The Mass Psychology of Fascism - 1933", "People in Trouble - 1936" and also in his books titled "The Invasion of Compulsory Sex-Morality - 1931", "The Sexual Revolution- 1935", "The Murder of Christ - 1951" and "Listen Little Man -1948". His work continued in the area of "The Bion Experiments" -- creation of life from inorganic matter. "His work continued with further studies into orgone energy (also known as chi, prana, and other eastern names). Wilhelm Reich performed several scientific experiments that objectified the presence of orgone energy - "The Cancer Biopathy - 1948". Many of his articles were written in journals including "Annals of the Orgone Institute", "International Journal of Sex-Economy and Orgone Research", "Orgone Energy Bulletin", and "Core" (Cosmic Orgone Engineering).......... as well as the book "Ether God and Devil / Cosmic Superimposition - 1951". He created instruments to accumulate orgone energy (orgone accumulators which speeded up natural healing of the body). He experimented with the reaction of orgone energy with nuclear radiation "The Oranur Experiment - 1951" which demonstrated the significant health dangers of low level radiation. He also created instruments that could return self-regulation to weather (the cloud buster) "Contact With Space - 1957". He did research on the source of ufo's energy, and discovered a motor force from orgone energy. He should be remembered most for his work for children. Through the entire period from the 1920's through the 1950s , he advocated for natural child-birth, natural parenting, self-regulation and for the sexual rights of youth and adults.

politic(k)s and magic(k) | key23 thread

Aleister Crowley used the term magick as a way to differentiate real magick from illusory parlor tricks. Politics, unfortunately, can be viewed in the same respect - hence the title of this article. The American public however, is never given a glimpse of the real politickal system, only the political one - the one filled with smoke and mirrors and manipulation.

Our magick never ran deep enough. We concerned ourselves too much with politics and not enough with the underly politicks that entrap us all.

We are at war, and we’ve lost this battle for many reasons. Now we must learn from this defeat in order to press on and dominate the rest of this war.

sensual liberation army has the right idea

Kerry won. Here are the facts.

greg palast - Most voters in Ohio thought they were voting for Kerry. At 1:05 a.m. Wednesday morning, CNN's exit poll showed Kerry beating Bush among Ohio women by 53 percent to 47 percent. The exit polls were later combined with—and therefore contaminated by—the tabulated results, ultimately becoming a mirror of the apparent actual vote. [To read about the skewing of exit polls to conform to official results, click here .] Kerry also defeated Bush among Ohio's male voters 51 percent to 49 percent. Unless a third gender voted in Ohio, Kerry took the state.

So what's going on here? Answer: the exit polls are accurate. Pollsters ask, "Who did you vote for?" Unfortunately, they don't ask the crucial, question, "Was your vote counted?" The voters don't know.

Here's why. Although the exit polls show that most voters in Ohio punched cards for Kerry-Edwards, thousands of these votes were simply not recorded.

and then there's this:

Black Box Voting has taken the position that fraud took place in the 2004 election through electronic voting machines. We base this on hard evidence, documents obtained in public records requests, inside information, and other data indicative of manipulation of electronic voting systems. What we do not know is the specific scope of the fraud. We are working now to compile the proof, based not on soft evidence -- red flags, exit polls -- but core documents obtained by Black Box Voting in the most massive Freedom of Information action in history.

maybe there's a reason

maybe this way all that dirt dug up can come out

presidents who serve two terms usually get hit with all the stuff dug up during their first term sometime during their second - and people been digging up more on bush, and quicker, than clinton before, or reagan's scandal in iran, or nixon's

watergate scenery twisted
as i slip off the back of the rock
that's so hard to hold on to
and what a day you left me
you went through the back door

(you know what I'm talking about)
Man found living in cave, growing pot at on Los Alamos land
LOS ALAMOS, N.M. - Authorities have evicted a man from a cave on Los Alamos National Laboratory land where they say he apparently lived for years with the comforts of home - a wood-burning stove, solar panels connected to car batteries for electricity and a satellite radio...

The lab has not used the restricted area where the cave is located for years, said Bernie Pleau, a spokesman for the department and the National Nuclear Security Administration in Los Alamos. It is about 50 yards out his office door and down the cliff, he said.

"I don't know if anyone has tried squatting on DOE property before or not," Pleau said. "Pretty strange, don't you think?"
