Principia Discussion / Re: Chaos is Energy
« on: Yesterday at 09:53:33 pm »
I think

that no matter what,

your life is going to include creative and destructive elements

Destructive energy, used properly, is in service to the creation of something better. Sometimes you have to tear down something in order to make room for something else.

Destructive energy without a constructive goal becomes a disease. Think about the sourpuss negative people you know, who never have anything good to say, only criticism and negativity. This sucks, that sucks, break break break. In the end, they're bitter and alone.

But when you destroy, if you do it from a place of of love, it has a different quality. Decay fertilizes the soil. It makes the flowers grow, and that's beautiful.

Jim Acosta had a heated exchange with Trump, had his press pass revoked, and then the administration lied about him getting handsy with a staffer.

Here's side by side comparison of the original footage and the doctored footage released by the White House.


These are dark times, this seriously disturbs me.

  • Morrison's beginning work on an Invisibles TV show
  • They don't have a network yet, but let's hope it's Netflix (some Invisibles Graffiti was visible in the background of a Stranger Things episode)
  • Wouldn't it be cool to see the scenes that they lifted for The Matrix?
  • Wouldn't it be cool if this story was actually filmable

"Wheelchair-bound 94-year old German on trial for Nazi crimes"

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-germany-warcrimes/wheelchair-bound-94-year-old-german-on-trial-for-nazi-crimes-idUSKCN1NB17Y

As all these US political crimes go unpunished, it's sorta heart warming to know that you're never really off the hook.

I did some open source intelligence training today.  It was fun.  Turns out you can get a lot from Facebook profiles with the right search strings.

interesting! is there google-indexed info that isn't public?

Just applied for an editor gig at Wizards of the Coast - wish me luck! Slim chances, but it would be a dream.

I just want to take a moment to imagine the hell world we'd be in if any of the people who received bombs were actually injured or killed.

Maybe we don't live in the worst possible timeline--but we've reached a simmer.

Now that I think of it, this kinda explains why NYC was on high alert yesterday. I wondered if something was up. I work in the financial district, and I saw cops everywhere. Grand Central had a bunch of armed, helmeted police (at least 4x more than normal). I had a 10-minute subway delay due to a "brake issue" but then the conductor read us a statement which suggested they were on high alert for suspicious packages.

Putin meets Bolton amid nuclear treaty exit tensions
https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/10/putin-receives-bolton-nuclear-treaty-exit-tensions-181023143704453.html


Quote
[Putin] also poked fun at the official seal of the US, which includes a bald eagle holding a bundle of 13 arrows in one talon and an olive branch with 13 olives in another.

"I have a question: Has your eagle picked all the olives and only has arrows left?" Putin asked with a laugh.


"Hopefully, I will have some answers for you," he said. "But I didn't bring any more olives."

"That's what I thought," Putin quipped.

I feel like Robert Anton Wilson had a stack of these sitting next to his typewriter when he was writing Cosmic Trigger and Prometheus Rising. Like in Issue #5 (edited by Timothy Leary), the issue opens with a research paper on the effects of Set and Setting on psilocibin experiences. And I remember Wilson talking about that study specifically.

I love how the magazine has this frontier feel, like they're explorers of human psychology and are showing you the route through this uncharted territory. There's a feeling of discovery, of sharing something fresh and crackling with gnosis.
