Going Out on a Limb in Kansas: 'Journal-World' Reports on Amputee Who Asked for his Foot Back

exclusive: digitrash interview: Ezekiel Rubottom's version of the story

even the battle-hardened Journal-World reporter expressed surprise when he heard about Ezekiel Rubottom -- the 21-year-old artist, occasional hip-hop emcee, and recovering methamphetamine addict who keeps his recently-amputated foot in a bucket of formaldehyde on his front porch.

Police were first alerted to the situation when they received a call from a parent whose child reported seeing the foot. Officers went to the home where Rubottom has been living on July 23 and confiscated the amputated body part to put it into evidence storage. They wanted to ensure that no crime had been committed, the newspaper reported.

However, two days later, after learning that it was perfectly legal to keep one's own amputated body parts, the police returned the foot to Rubottom.

What initially began as a police investigation into a “public disturbance” quickly evolved into a fun biographical sketch of an eccentric local resident. “I'm not going to pretend it's the hardest news story in the world -- it's just a quirky feature or profile -- but it was fun to meet someone who's just a little unusual,” Weslander said.

Weslander reported that Rubottom was born with a clubbed foot and has dealt with pressure sores and infections throughout his life. This summer, one such infection became so severe that local doctors decided it needed to be amputated.

After the surgery, Rubottom reportedly asked to keep the foot. This hospital allowed it, provided he kept it in a container with formaldehyde.

This is exactly what Rubottom has done. He also added a beer can and a porcelain horse to the bucket. But perhaps the most striking modification was his decision to cut off two of the toes -- which he told Weslander he plans to give to friends as presents.

(After declining an interview Tuesday afternoon, he hung a hand-printed sign on his front door, not far from a tightly sealed bucket sitting on his porch.

“No More Media,” the sign read. “No news is good news.”)

Poker Without Cards interview

good nuggets from pdf
with jc & bm, commentary by jp

BM: So now I have some more questions for you... will you be able to let go of your resentment of money enough to get wealthy with me? Seriously. Are you tired of being broke, tired enough that you are willing to make some money? I know I am.

JC: Yeah I hit that point a while ago, I'm just waiting for it to catch up with me already. (laughs) Right now I have my head down, just trying to get work done. It's pretty crazy, some days I barely remember what my name is. Thankfully I have people around to remind me. You develop a kind of schizophrenia when you're hopping from mastering an album to giving creative direction on a graphic novel to illustrating storyboards and writing the next chapter of your novel all in the same day. It's not a schizophrenia of identity, you know... but. I don't know, a lot of duct tape is involved. Anyone that thinks it's easy work, or 'slack off' work, should try it for a couple months.

(anyone notice that is hosted by Ubikorp?)

Our way is not for all men. There are those who are so constricted and sick in themselves that the thought of their own freedom is a horror, and that of others a fierce pain; so that they would enslave all men. And these you should shun, or, if you must, destroy them as you will know how, for this also is bounty.

Nor think the life power should manifest in those who have no trouble or turmoil, for these may be mere dumb cattle, innocents out of season. Rather does the power often show the most where conflict rages, since at any time, and especially in a false civilization, the way must be won through. Surrender is disaster. The other side of the coin is a song in the sunlight and a dance in the moonlight, where all mists are dispersed. But the way must be won.

Read poker without cards. You'll have to buy it, but think about how spending money is a magickal transfer of energy, and there is an exchange that occurs.. what is it.. "a gift requires a gift" or something, what you give up willingly manifests as an exchange - it'll free you up some, gets energy moving out of the gnarl.

444 | Craftworking the Clockwork

444 has some intelligent things to say about the war (imho) over at 'slow motion apocalypse'
apparently (rense, hmm...?) US soldiers are being cracked down upon by the Military Police for their use of drugs like hash in order to cope with the stress of things like torturing children (although I bet a select few of those hopped up on coke control freaks get pretty excited about atrocity like this), and leaving a vast environmental hazard behind in their 'freeing' wake.

People are really getting sick of the whole thing, and like Amnesty International in Norway seems to have gotten going: more people need to pull out of the US agenda. Unfortunately, those most invested are the most powerful allies and will be of the last to admit that they've been had by the crafty monkey Bush.

But the answer seems to be easy, at least, if you are a soldier and tired of car bombs, death, bloodshed, and roadside bomb booby traps: smoke HASH, lots and lots of HASH.

Let everyone in your unit know you smoke it all the time. Yeah, you'll get a year in a military jail, but you'll also get discharged from the military IMMEDIATELY.

Imagine that? The US army could be full of deserters & all they gotta' do is spark up a big fat joint instead of sparking up the muzzle fire of their radioactive death spitting guns.

The Freeman Perspective: The Blog

I got freeman set up with a blog, and I figure he'll be updating it as he sets up the shows

his next show is on the raelians, and the first post on his blog links to a preview of the upcoming episode.

the raelians are an odd bunch:

FOX NEWS: Payola Shocker: J-Lo Hits, Others Were 'Bought' by Sony

"We look forward to breaking many records together in the future."

Take Jennifer Lopez's awful record, "Get Right," with its shrill horn and lifted rap. It's now clear that was a "bought" sensation when it was released last winter. So, too, were her previous "hits" "I'm Glad" and "I'm Real," according to the memos. All were obtained by Sony laying out dough and incentives. It's no surprise. There isn't a person alive who could hum any of those "songs" now. Not even J-Lo herself.

Announced today: Sony Music — now known as Sony/BMG — has to pony up a $10 million settlement with New York's Attorney General Eliot Spitzer. It should be $100 million. And this won't be the end of the investigation. Spitzer's office is looking into all the record companies. This is just the beginning.

But what a start: Black-and-white evidence of plasma TVs, laptop computers and PlayStation 2 players being sent to DJs and radio programmers in exchange for getting records on the air. And not just electronic gifts went to these people either. According to the papers released today, the same people also received expensive trips, limousines and lots of other incentives to clutter the airwaves with the disposable junk that now passes for pop music.

The London Bombings

The London Bombings happened on the July 6 new moon of 14 Cancer (The first one at 8:51am London and 4th at 9:17 am July 7). This was 90 days AFTER the solar eclipse of April 8, 2005 at 19 Aries. This Solar Eclipse was in a square to Saturn at 21 Cancer. Having Saturn in a difficult aspect to an eclipse shows hard times and karmic lessons for the following 6 months to 2 years.

For the April 8, 2005 eclipses at 19 Aries to be activated, that degree needed to be triggered by other planets hitting the same degree. The New Moon of July 6 was at 14 Cancer squaring the Eclipse of April. Also, Mars squared the New Moon and the April eclipse at 17 degrees. WOW!

So on July 6 and 7, we had the Sun, Moon and Mars triggering the April Eclipse. Mars square the Sun alone shows an intense output of aggressive energy, and an urge for power and survival. Because of the age of London, we don't have a birth chart for London to see why it would be the place that would feel this eclipse.

At the time of the bombings, Saturn was about to leave Cancer and go into Leo. This leads me to believe that the bombings in London was a final lesson from Saturn in Cancer. Saturn which rules fear, limits and restraints was in Cancer for 2 years and Saturn in Cancer rules homeland and security. The Brits seemed to react in a slightly different way to this attack then the way we did in the U.S. They didn't seem to get paranoid and cut back on their human rights by passing a patriot act (yet). They took a more stoic and possibly a more enlightened approach by stating that they would try to find the causes of terrorism rather than act impulsively. But, on the other hand they may have been too lax in their security (Saturn in Cancer).

Maybe the lesson we needed to learn with Saturn in Cancer is to strike a balance between national security and a realization that the homeland is now the globe.


Trasiting Saturn in Leo

Now that Saturn is in Leo, I find it interesting to watch how the Leo's are being affected by this transit. For instance, I read an article on Tom Cruise the other day stating that his popularity may be fading because of his fanatic spiritual beliefs. I quickly did his chart and saw that his Moon is at 2 degrees of Leo. The Moon his emotional needs and Saturn is now conjunct his Moon. This means that his need to shine and be a star will be inhibited or restrained. He may get fewer roles.

President Bush has his ascendant at 7 Leo, Mercury at 9 Leo, Pluto at 10 Leo and Venus at 21 Leo. This year, 2005, Saturn will be conjunct his ascendant, Mercury and Pluto.

Jupiter was in Leo last year and being the 'great protector' he shielded him from his enemies. Now that transiting Saturn is on his Ascendant and Mercury, Venus and Pluto, he is more open to attack. Saturn is interested in deflating the ego. He wants to find the real inner self by getting rid of inflation and arrogance so that one can become authentic. But as the focus turns inside oneself, others may see this as a weakness and one can become vulnerable to any enemies made in the past. Because of this, the next two years may be a time when Bush's popularity wanes.

Karl Rove has been under the gun lately. We are not sure of his birth time, but some are listing a time of 4:14 AM on Dec 25, 1950 in Denver, Colorado. He would then have Scorpio rising (power, secrets) which would fit his profile. He has the Sun, Mercury and Venus in Capricorn and his moon is at 14 Cancer right on GW's Sun. They were made for each other, real soul mates because the Sun in GW's chart is conjunct the Moon in Rove's chart. This is a classic aspect for true compatibility. Rove has his Mars at 7 Aquarius and transiting Saturn in Leo is opposing his Mars starting in July and becoming exact in Sept 2005. Saturn will restrict his actions (Mars). He will be blocked somehow and not able to move forward. His Neptune at 19 degrees of Libra is squaring the Moon, Mercury and Venus. My old fashioned traditional astrology teacher would say that this aspect means "he's a liar, he's a liar". But I try to be broad minded. The operative word is "try". And I would say that with a T-square involving Neptune; there could be a lot of idealism, fantasy and deception from self or others around him. Neptune is the planet that rules propaganda. Neptune is not all bad, he also rules non-rational communication which makes this a great aspect for artists or musicians.

I have heard that Rove collects Goebbels memorabilia so he must feel some connection to him. We are not sure of Goebbels birth time, but with the time I have, he also had a T-square with Neptune opposite Moon square Jupiter. Goebbels shares the same Scorpio energy as Rove. Rove has a Scorpio ascendant and Goebbels had the Sun and Mars in Scorpio.

Condoleezza Rice has Sun, Venus, Saturn, Mercury and her Midheaven in Scorpio. Saturn in Leo will be squaring these planets and the MC (her vocation and standing in the outer world) during the next 2 years. She may share in GW's fall from grace.

With Saturn (fear) squaring Rice's Scorpio placements, Rove's Scorpio Rising and Bush with his Mercury conjunct Pluto in Leo, this administration is going to get mighty paranoid over the next few years.

Stay tuned.

Mind May Affect Machines

Researchers at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program, or Pear, have been attempting to measure the effect of human consciousness on machines since 1979.

Using random event generators -- computers that spew random output -- they have participants focus their intent on controlling the machines' output. Out of several million trials, they've detected small but "statistically significant" signs that minds may be able to interact with machines. However, researchers are careful not to claim that minds cause an effect or that they know the nature of the communication.

Cultural Implications

Beyond its scientific impact and its technological applications, clear evidence of an active role of consciousness in the establishment of reality holds sweeping implications for our view of ourselves, our relationship to others, and to the cosmos in which we exist. These, in turn, must inevitably impact our values, our priorities, our sense of responsibility, and our style of life. Integration of these changes across the society can lead to a substantially superior cultural ethic, wherein the long-estranged siblings of science and spirit, of analysis and aesthetics, of intellect and intuition, and of many other subjective and objective aspects of human experience will be productively reunited.

propaganda alert: FOX News - Ruppert Murdoch make major move to co-op (Psy-Op) Web

saw it here: jackblood/headlines
NEWS Corporation has made good on Rupert Murdoch's vow to expand its on-line presence, announcing yesterday its first major internet acquisition since the dotcom boom. In a cash deal that gives News Corp a foothold in the arena of internet news blogs and social networking, the company will buy Intermix Media for $US580 million ($776 million). U.S. company Intermix owns – the worldwide web's most popular meeting place for young people – and a range of other websites offering games, cartoons and on-line greetings cards.

here's the kicker:
"We see a great opportunity to combine the popularity of Intermix's sites, particularly MySpace, with our existing on-line assets to provide a richer experience for today's Internet users," Mr Murdoch said.

question it all

remember the speed of light is not constant.

people will notice and make fun of stuff they don't understand

magick is an odd study course

but if science meets magick then strange things will get weirder & I for one would rather leave religion out of the intersection.. we worship or fear what we don't comprehend, and to me the ideal is to comprehend it all...

I've been dreaming aloud on this blog for a while, and it seems to attract attention... well today this is what has my attention...

"I happen to like structure and a set God or Gods. Even though the power of magic begins and ends with the magician, I believe that there exists a "shadowy middle ground" where a higher power intervenes. Unless we are the potential Gods ourselves, unable to awaken our potential. Perhaps then we are worshipping a part of ourselves that we will never reach? It has occurred to me that perhaps all of the power, all the magic, and all of the will lies within the magician himself, fast asleep. The person next to you, your friend, neighbor, boss, teacher… they are machines that react to stimulus without thinking, without deliberate and conscious thought." - from green wisdom

"Oddly enough, a good number of my most intense spiritual experiences have happened at raging parties, or when walking down the street and paying attention to the social climate and crumbling buildings of the city. I don't have my Rumi book in front of me, but a good number of his poems extoll the illuminaing virtues of getting really drunk. I guess that would be one of the tenants of my practice, that even the most profane or mundane of situations can contain the same element of meaning found in meditation or ritual worship or the intentional use of certain mind altering chemicals. In fact, there have been many times when I was a kid at church when I found the whole situation to be absolutely banal, if not most times, and more recently many occasions that ought to be considered potentially spiritual where the mind rebels and just can't believe the absurd zealousy of the whole thing." - from janus... true names... between sacred & profane

"am i beautiful?
do you fear me?
will you let me seduce you?
but i need your permission
you have to let me inside your boundaries
you have to want to be dissected
let me caress the viscera
let me extend myself into you
we can blur the edges together
i can make you more
i can build you into something new
let me under your skin
and i will make you whole" from psymbiote a cyborg performance persona

I think the future of cybernetic modifications will likely be accepted by mainstream culture much more quickly than aesthetic modifications have, simply because they do have practical purposes. People in this culture love their useful tech gadgets. Also, by the time the technologies are stable enough for commercial internalized cybernetics, going under the skin might have a much wider acceptance because of the work in aesthetic modifications that's happening now. The transition from miniature wearables to implantables might be really subtle, too subtle for most people to bother making a distinction." from isa gordon and Jesse Jarrell:The Psymbiote Speaks: On Generating a Cyborg Body

this isn't about metabelief, dipping into a structure long enough to chant out a spell... that's like choosing to be catholic long enough to jump into a confessional. maybe not quite the same, I've never been catholic. I'm saying that just entering the church gives it power over you, and as long as you give something power you'll never be free of it.

so to destroy all religions and governments one must find a source of energy unassociated with all of that.. something like sourcery, something direct

we've begun working our way down to the level of matter where it isn't matter any more, but potential. we need to divorce ourself from the superstitious religious awe and accept the fact that we're moments away from commodifying alchemy

If I had one wish for the magickal community it would be that they'd read more WILLIAM GIBSON & AUSTIN OSMAN SPARE. More STARHAWK & less RAVENWOLF.

you get the idea. don't worship, go out, play in public, and be happy looking weird. it totally fucks with them & is better than church

"BEFORE THE REVOLUTION: What to do till the FBI comes,

or Before the FBI: What to do till the Revolution comes"by Larry Tate, from 'Take me out to the Paper 3, no.4 (Nov. 14, 1967).....

note: I found this in "Voices From The Underground - Insider Histories of the Vietnam Era Underground Press" edited by K Wachsberger...

I think it might profit the blogging community to look closely at the underground press from the sixties, because that's our legacy. anyway....

My feelings are as mixed as everyone else's but what I feel most strongly most often is that the Great Tradition [of Responsible Dissent in America] has failed, period. The American system can HANDLE dissent by denouncing it or ignoring it or (most subtly) praising it. We get to say what we want, they get to do what they want. Since all we ever do is talk anyway, we're happy to have our say and feel morally free to crawl home and wait for the apocalypse.
I am trully sorry if I sound offensively melodramatic. I will just, now, try to tell you what I think is happening in America. As the overt violence of the South came home to the ghettoes of the North, the overt violence of Vietnam and the various other places we are Containing something or other is coming home to America. The difference this time is that the great white middle-class will not find itself putting down an alien people, but its own sons and daughters. Young people, dissenters, are going to find out how it feels to have American armed might turned loose on them. And very probably the darkest time in all of American history will be upon us.
THAT sounds melodramatic, surely... The News media out there have been trying to make a big deal out of the fact that we didn't shut down the Induction Center; that we didn't shut down the Pentagon. Protestors Fail, they say again and again. Do they realize what they're saying? If we HADN'T failed, if we HAD taken over the Induction Center or the Pentagon, that would have been the Revolution. It would never have occurred to us to stress that we failed, since we knew there was no chance of our 'succeeding.' But the papers have to rush to reassure their readers that we didn't take the Pentagon by force, after all. Whew! Close shave!

$100,000 Reward For Information Leading To The Return Of The Tooth

seen on metafilter
In March (2005) my roommate and I went to the U.K and spent our last two days at Loch Ness. The boat rental season hadn’t started so we hired a local who took us on a private boat tour.

After a few hours we came across the remains of a dead deer. The animal had literally been ripped in half - hind quarters gone, its spine was broken and severed. There were huge bloody gashes, teeth marks and a bizarre bony protrusion sticking out of an exposed rib. Using a screwdriver, we cracked open the ribcage and pried it loose. It was a tooth - about 4 inches long, barbed and very sharp!

I'm about the biggest skeptic you'll ever meet, but this tooth was real, and whatever ate that deer had to have been huge. Our Scottish local told us there are no bears in the area. Excited, we signaled a passing boat to join us. Big mistake! The man told us he was the water bailiff, flashed credentials, then confiscated the tooth and the video tape that was in my camera, claiming we could get everything back from the Highland Authorities as long as we cooperated. Fortunately, he didn’t find the earlier footage in my backpack.

We wasted our last day trying to get the tooth back. Most thought we were nuts, one guy who knew the water bailiff threatened to "take our passports if we made trouble." Now we're angry and want the tooth back.

These people think so

Alchemy of the Paranormal

...we’re learning some truly amazing things that have repercussions in such diverse disciplines as anthropology, sociology, religion, psychiatry, and even quantum physics. We are starting to view all these EHEs as part of a single meta-phenomenon that is slowly revealing another side to our existence, something unexpected. Everyone of us is involved in this because the process takes place within the changing belief systems of individuals. While we may not know the mechanism involved, if we look at all types of Exceptional Human Experience, the meaning of the paranormal becomes clearer. Taken as a whole, the paranormal experience seems to suggest that human beings are being inaugurated into a frame of reference beyond the physical reality we take for granted. Space and time may only be components of something that we can’t yet grasp intellectually.

this is a great, albeit long, read. and potentially rewarding:

Paranormal subjects are energizing archetypal forces within themselves that align their energy vibration (consciously or unconsciously) with that of a particular archetypal force. That's why it only takes the rumor of UFOs for people to see them, because it sets up the unconscious expectation or right frequency of mind.

A vampire has been arrested in Ukraine after luring street children into her home for their blood | Metafilter article
"She gave me vodka and I sniffed some glue. But than she came up to me with a syringe and asked me to stretch out my hand. I didn't feel any pain because I was too scared. She drew the blood with the syringe and a needle and than put it in her silver bowl and drank it, murmuring in some strange language."

Semenuha, who when arrested gave her profession as "witch", has admitted holding the children. "I let them sniff glue, but I paid for it and took a small amount of blood in return," she said. "But there was no violence involved, I also fed them and gave them shelter."

Police fear that she could escape prosecution for corrupting minors and plying them with alcohol because the seven children found at her home have since escaped from care and gone back on the streets.

Re: Freeman Perspective episode 7:

Last Sunday I accidentally created my first comedy:) I attempted to
take phone calls and the misadventures that lead to are hilarious:) I
had a man call from the unannounced special access projects of the
navy to offer to give me some secret knowledge on air, and then I
could ask 3 questions of him;) The phone begin a feedback loop,
sounding like a flying saucer landing and there was, all of a sudden,
another caller on the line. This sort of incident happened with all my
callers, but one. What he had to say was, "your mom" I told him my mom
was 75 and probably not his type and hung up. I took the next call and
he says, "It's still me." (laughter erupts) So, I thought I'd give it
another go!:) It was fun and entertaining. I talked with the ACTV crew
and they tested the phones and concluded, it must be the aliens. So,
if you would like to battle with me against the alien retaliation, you
can call in from midnight to 12:30 sunday. The # is 512-477-2288. I
believe I will open with ID theft and "the chip", but we can talk
about anything you desire. Even my mom:)

Because it is sometimes so unbelievable,
the truth escapes becoming known

Deconstructing Magickal Paradigms part 2

nugatory: a few thoughts on the deconstruction of all ritual magick paradigms

a ritual is an initiated set of actions towards acheiving a desired end or something - fairly straightfoward... but a paradigm? We start out as innate creatures of this place, tis space, and within it we find other creatures. Communication with those creatures is possible when there is a common paradigm within which to communicate. Paradigm is then used to refer to some culturally (or subculturally) adapted model.

All the common currency of ritual magick is bound to the strictures of modern reliance on ancient religious and philosophic thought.

I've never been overly fond of 'the common' in any field, and have gone about somewhat gleefully defiant in my approach to the occult in general. As such, other, non-traditional approaches became my preferred avenue of 'Will-working.'

At some point, I completely revised my understanding of reality to incorporate what I had learned, and attempted to apply my knowledge: reality twisted to accomodate.

There are a number of techniques, neurotechnologies, I've adapted or developed based on dialogue and contemplation of written texts, both ancient and contemporary. The relevant ones are as follows:

*astrology - no matter where you are in reality, you can chart it in space-time in relation to the heavens and the objects moving about in them... It's 2005, there's shit in orbit around the earth, we're planning mars and moon missions, and astrology is going to have to keep up, let alone the rest of the occult world, so I've been toying with the idea of being born off-world and how that would affect one's natal chart.

*Absent-minded magick, which is relatively evolved sigil magic, and my basic, ground level approach. I use logograms because my theory is logomatic symbols communicate directly with both lobes of the brain. These symbols come from wherever I can find them, and I've picked the bulk of them up from the web. I use them to construct rituals from the ground up. It's sigil magick at the basic level, but the purpose behind it is aligning the whole brain, the entire consciousness, on a desired outgrowth from the point of ritual.

*Textual magick, a result of a study conducted by Zero (the unsignified), Zolar, & I that we called the 888 project, and which is an attempt to construct an off-world kabbala based on english. (image)

*Juxtapositional Magick, exactly as described by Joel Birocco in Kaos 14. This is a useful mapping device, it helps throw up an intuitive mirror, charts the divergence between possible outcomes, and helps anchor the myriad of selves.

*Creative Play/Road Magick, or allowing & adapting an attitude of Pronoia (* says: PRONOIA is brought to you by by the 10,000-year-old lupine seed that Yukon miners found in frozen silt and turned over to scientists who planted it and grew a perfectly healthy bush.)

*Probablity alteration or Parallel universe hopping - I kinda think this might have something to do with what Taylor Ellwood is on about in his Space/Time Magick stuff. In some universe next door anything you can or can't imagine will happen to you. All you have to do is swap consciousness with that you in that universe before the universes bifurcate. Rituals are that tool of stepping around in the myriad of selves.

*Treating entities as they treat you.

That's about the bulk of my tool chest there... There is no place in my magickal studies for religious trappings: I strip out or ignore everything with any reference to diabolic or the divine. This is not to say that I don't agree these entities exist or that these rituals work. I know there's radio stations out there that play country, but I don't bother tuning in.. and I view my decision to ignore or modify anything ritually that smacks of religion is entirely a political & cultural decision, just like my decision to ignore country radio stations. I'm not discounting the effectiveness of traditional systems, just fed up with them.

from Dreamways of the Iroquois by Robert Moss

"...An old Inuit woman on Little Diomede Island explained to a Danish anthropologist that powerful spirits - like the spirit of the whale - must be summoned by 'fresh words.'... 'Worn-out songs' should never be used when you are trying to call on important spirits, she explained."

Ball Lightning, Corpse Candles, and Weird Flying Humanoids

Ancient UFOs on a deadly mission
supernatural lights said to appear in the homes of the dying or be seen floating down country lanes at night, making their way to the parish burial ground along the same route subsequently taken by a funeral.

One year the area around Barmouth became famous for mysterious lights in the sky - what today we might call UFOs, but which the inhabitants back then considered death omens. The Barmouth lights achieved a lot more attention than the usual stories because they coincided with a major religious revival

Ball Lightning Injures 3 in Russia’s Yakutia
Ball lightning injured three men in Russia’s far eastern Yakutia Sakha region on Wednesday, the Interfax news agency reports. The lightning flew into a cottage where the group were sheltering from a thunderstorm and then exploded.

The incident occurred in the town of Sredne-Kolymsk in eastern Yakutia. | Weird Flying Entities Over The US
Weird sightings of strange flying creatures and unknown entities are not exculsive to Mexico.

There have been many reports of these disconcerting incidents through the years from different places around the world and the amount of testimonials from reliable witnesses who witnessed such odd experiences tell us this phenomena is no longer a myth but a reality, a dramatic revelation that mysterious and unpredictable presences exist around us.

unrelated. honestly.

Dead Sheep, Genius Kid, Urine in the Holy Water

450 Sheep Jump to Thier Death
ISTANBUL, Turkey -- First one sheep jumped to its death. Then stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as nearly 1,500 others followed, each leaping off the same cliff, Turkish media reported.

In the end, 450 dead animals lay on top of one another in a billowy white pile, the Aksam newspaper said. Those who jumped later were saved as the pile got higher and the fall more cushioned, Aksam reported

Freeman asks: "Is this kid the antichrist?" Bringing Up Genius
Greg was delivered by C-section, plump and healthy. Janet swears that his newborn photograph shows him with his tiny finger pressed against his temple. Just a few hours old, Greg seemed lost in thought already.

At home with their new baby, the Smiths quickly noticed that Greg was showing developmental skills well beyond his age. Instead of batting at the nursery animals twirling on the mobile over his crib the way most infants do, Greg was grabbing them and examining them. At 3 months old, he said, "Dada"; other words and then full sentences quickly followed. He could recite memorized books before his first birthday, and read on his own not long after that. He solved arithmetic problems at 14 months. At 2, he was reading about dinosaurs and chatting knowledgeably about the Cretaceous Period. He observed that people had flat teeth, like plant-eating dinosaurs, and concluded that human beings must be herbivores, not carnivores. He persuaded his family to become vegetarians.

The Smiths never drilled Greg. "We never did flashcards with him or anything like that," Janet recalls. There was no Mozart-in-the-womb or special vitamins or IQ-boosting diet. His parents refused any social invitations that didn't include Greg. His father would take him on hikes in the woods and talk about photosynthesis and the ecosystem, using words he thought Greg could understand. "He would ask back smart questions."

deconstructing magickal paradigms

words mean things...

for years now I've been absolutely astounded by the depth of idiocy run rampant throughout the occult world, and in particular, the obsessive devotion to judaeo-christian paradigms that is part & parcel of ceremonial magic.

personally, i'm much more likely to ascribe a neurosemantic label to an autonomous servitor than a theologically derived label - gods, demons, or angels, all these manifestations come out of the same paradigm I want to destroy - why would I muck about feeding energy into this superstructure when my intention is to find a way out of it?

taking this stance puts me (as an occultist) into a very shaky situation - nearly every available grimoire comes out of a theological framework, and the majority of them are christian or kabbalistic in origin

the obvious answer seems to be technoshamanism - directly experiencing and interpreting the numinous reality - but pure submersion in the stuff of the universe does not make a mage

my introduction into workable ritual came from the appendicies of Illuminatus! - a primer of evocation, where I realised that if it's possible to call the energies of anything into oneself, then it becomes important to be somewhat coosey

and that's what I'm kinda spiralling about here - I'm choosing to step around any magical system that reeks of religion (that means anything requiring the names of god written in a circle, anything that interprets reality as a series of concentric circles ruled by angelic beings, etc)

this is part of the reason why i've been so enamoured of t. leary's 8 circuits, and why I was trying to provide a basis for self-structured ritual in Altar, Consciousness parts 1-4, and where I'm headed with my future ritual working

there will be more on this from me in some form soon.

(yeah, I hate everything sacred, & everything blasphemous. we'd be better off if there had never been the concept of worship installed in our linguistic structure)

Sexth Sense

Based on the book El sueño del amor by Mabel Iam.

try this telepathy game. It works! Follow these steps:

1. Place yourself behind the person

2. Focus and fix your eyes on the back of their neck, thinking that you want them to turn around and look at you.

3. When they do, visualize in your mind, as if it were a movie, that this person moves towards you and says hello.

4. Wait for the first movement they make. Give them a friendly smile and a naive, sweet look as you visualize: your aim is to have them come to you.

5. If they don’t, imagine you’re having a drink or a bite with them, something you like very much. To me, it would be having a sparkling drink, or eating chocolate mousse or berry cake. The instinct of pleasure and the telepathic mind work together very well.

6. If you really like and want them, imagine you’re passionately kissing them. LOVE NEVER FAILS.
from Mabel Iam

(fwiw... I think I'd be freaked out if I turned around and saw someone 'willing' at me)
