Retired Lockheed-Martin skunk-works director teams-up with SRI remote-viewers and ex-rockstar frontman to finance R&D on vehicle, which turns-out to be based on concept art of Buckaroo-Banzai.

(maybe should have put this in News section)

I share a Blavatsky/Crowley perception of religion, that if there's truth in any of them then it can be found in parts of all of them but that not any single belief system can be entirely trusted, so then that connects back to RAW, Leary and reality tunnels  :wink:

Interesting, how would you say Terrence McKenna is the opposite?

In the way that they approach the world and enlightenment.

Gurdjieff being someone that believes in full participation with the world around us, combined with certain Zen views of not resting value or morality on earthly things.

McKenna being someone that believes we can attain a great knowledge from participating in consumption of psychedelic drugs (which are still stigmatized) to advance our understanding about both ourselves and the world around us. There is some Timothy Leary in there too.
He does however share certain Zen sentiments with Gurdjieff.


I think they are both right answers but there are still other answers still.

Post-neoism is better  :lol:

Yes, indeed.

There are some conspiracies being incubated linked to this. The main one is a open-source zine, inspired by the Neoist magazine SMILE, called Discordja.

There's also praise and or gratitude prayer. I find it good medicine to be thankful for the little things even as The Struggle continues unabated. It's a form of mindfulness that feeds the spirit and is the whole point of prayer before a meal IMO.

Being more conscious of the wonders in the universe naturally leads to this kind of feedback cycle that makes endurance and even prosperity more accessible in one's life.
