Sundaze, Inside Out (7)

Hello, Sundaze's up and i gathered it's been 3 months, time for another Inside Out. There's plenty to enjoy and ponder upon this Sundaze. Now, i got a very nifty tool tool lately that enables me to download and recode videos that are out there. Not that special, but some of the video's are, and today i have a stunning compilation made from Hubble images. Awesome ! The Universe on a scale where the screen crosses many lightyears, at the same time looks much much smaller, almost touchable, as if you were standing in it. You can feel that it's alife, it's magical . We are told we're just a tiny tiny part of it, but are we ? Aren't we as observers bring it to the for, granted a philosphical question, but its been proven that our perception creates light (Heisenberg principle) So is this video reflecting the Universe's collective consciousness ? Whatever you think, this 55 min vid is wonderful, and should you not like the music turn it off, and just let your eyes wander and wonder.

Hubble, View Of The Universe ( 81mb, avi 55min)

***** ***** ***** ***** *****
Terence McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was a writer, philosopher, and ethnobotanist. He is noted for his many speculations on the use of psychedelic, plant-based hallucinogens, and subjects ranging from shamanism, the development of human consciousness, and the novelty theory. At age 16, McKenna moved to, Los Altos, California. He was introduced to psychedelics through reading The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley and Village Voice. One of his early experiences with them came through morning glory seeds (containing LSA), which he claimed showed him "that there was something there worth pursuing.". He spent the years after his graduation (degree in Ecology and Conservation) teaching English in Japan, traveling through India and South Asia collecting butterflies for biological supply companies, and smuggling hashish into the United States. Together with his brother he travelled to Columbia checking out the psychedelic snuff called yopo, the mind normally remains clear and focused during the entire experience . As a consequence Terance claimed it put him in contact with Logos: an informative, hallucinatory voice he believed was universal to visionary religious experience. The revelations of this voice, and his brother's peculiar experience during the experiment, prompted him to explore the structure of an early form of the I Ching, which led to his "Novelty Theory".

In the early 1980s, McKenna began to speak publicly on the topic of psychedelic drugs, lecturing extensively and conducting weekend workshops, repeatedly stressing the importance of the primacy of felt experience as opposed to dogmatic ideologies. In addition to psychedelic drugs, McKenna spoke on the subjects of virtual reality (which he saw as a way to artistically communicate the experience of psychedelics), techno-paganism, artificial intelligence, evolution, extraterrestrials, and aesthetic theory (art/visual experience as information-- representing the significance of hallucinatory visions experienced under the influence of psychedelics). He advised the taking of psychedelic mushrooms, in both low and high doses, alone and with others.He remained opposed to most forms of organized religion or guru-based forms of spiritual awakening. He believed DMT was the apotheosis of the psychedelic experience and spoke of the "jeweled, self-dribbling basketballs" or "self-transforming machine elves" that one encounters in that state.

McKenna also co-founded Botanical Dimensions with Kathleen Harrison (his colleague and wife of 17 years), a non-profit ethnobotanical preserve on the island of Hawaii, where he lived for many years before he died. A longtime sufferer of migraines, in mid-1999 McKenna returned to his home in Hawaii after a long and tiring lecturing tour. He began to suffer from increasingly painful headaches. This culminated in a brain seizure, which led to McKenna being diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a highly aggressive form of brain cancer.He died 53 years old on April 3, 2000, alongside his loved ones. 

Perhaps the most famous of Terence McKenna's theories and observations is his explanation for the origin of the human mind and culture. McKenna theorized that as the North African jungles receded toward the end of the most recent ice age, giving way to grasslands, a branch of our tree-dwelling primate ancestors left the branches and took up a life out in the open — following around herds of ungulates, nibbling what they could along the way. Among the new items in their diet were psilocybin-containing mushrooms growing in the dung of these ungulate herds. McKenna, claimed enhancement of visual acuity as an effect of psilocybin at low doses, and supposed that this would have conferred an adaptive advantage. He also argued that the effects of slightly larger doses, including a physical sexual arousal (obviously, not reported as a typical effect in scientific studies) — and in still larger doses, ecstatic hallucinations and glossolalia — gave evolutionary advantages to those tribes who partook of it.

Watch his lecture about it Seeking The Stone, Mind & Time, Spirit & Matter (avi 2 parts, 103min, 126mb)

One of McKenna's most widely-promulgated ideas is known as Novelty theory. It predicts the ebb and flow of novelty in the universe as an inherent quality of time.The theory proposes that the universe is an engine designed for the production and conservation of novelty. Novelty, in this context, can be thought of as newness. According to McKenna, when novelty is graphed over time, a fractal waveform known as "timewave zero" or simply the "timewave" results. The graph shows at what time periods, but never at what locations, novelty increases or decreases. 

This universal algorithm has also been extrapolated to be a model for future events. McKenna admitted to the expectation of a "singularity of novelty", and that he and his colleagues projected many hundreds of years into the future to find when this singularity (runaway "newness" ) could occur. The graph had many enormous fluctuations over the last 25,000 years, but amazingly, it hit an asymptote at exactly December 22, 2012, in other words, entropy (or habituation) no longer exists after that date. Basically it's impossible to define that state. The technological singularity concept parallels this, only at a date roughly three decades later. Terrence claimed to have no knowledge of the Mayan calendar, which ends one day before the Timewave graph does: December 21, 2012, this is likely to be true as Mckennas timewave theory was published in The Invisible Landscape 12 years before the book which brought the Mayan calendar into public consciousness.

Another great talk and some amazing concepts are explored here

Terance McKenna - 'UFOs' and The Mushroom ( 83 min, 47mb)

some quotes from this talk 

"I think reason can take us only a certain distance, and then we have to go with the divine imagination."

"And this is something I’m going to try and convince the UFO community of, what we drug people have that you don’t is repeatability."

"The Stropharia cubensis mushroom is a memory bank of galactic history. Alien, but full of promise, it throws open a potential for understanding that will sweep away the petty concerns of earth and history-bound humanity."

"Not all psychedelics are alike. And this very small family of compounds, called the tryptomine hallucinogens, bear careful examination if we’re seriously interested in this question of exterrestial penetration of the human world."

"I think that the alien will be so alien that your jaw will hang in the air. And expecting to meet an anthropoid-like alien with an interest in your reproductive machinery and gross industrial capacity is as culture-bound a concept as searching NGC-321 for a good Italian restaurant. It’s absurd on the face of it."

"Now you may have thought telepathy was you hearing somebody else think. Apparently, that’s not what telepathy is. Telepathy is you seeing what somebody else means. It’s the visual acquisition of meaning rather than the audio acquisition of meaning."

"I think that we are on a collision course with a planet-transforming event, and that we have been for a very, very long time. I also believe that it lies below the horizon of rational apprehension at this point in time."

"The world is not what it appears to be."

Dr Jeffrey Thompson - Creative Mind System ( * 99mb)

Dr. Thompson has been experimenting with sound scientifically since 1980. He first started in his Holistic Health Center in Virginia . His experiments were in using exact sound frequencies to make Chiropractic spinal and cranial adjustments, to stimulate and normalize organ function and to balance Acupuncture Meridians. He developed a very gentle and effective method of making adjustments and continues to use this approach today. In addition to his chiropractic expertise, Dr. Thompson is recognized as a worldwide expert in the field of acoustic pacing frequencies incorporated into musical sound tracks. A consummate musician and composer in his own rite, he has established a method for using modulated sound-pulses for changing states of consciousness for optimal "Mind-Body" healing.

Dr. Thompson's first recording, Isle of Skye, was carried by major music distributors in the US within its first month of release. Within the first six months, it was adopted by the American Hypnotherapy Association for its use in hypnosis. In the years since, Dr Thompson has generated more than ninety acoustic pacing compact disks and audiotapes sold globally and used by Holistic physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, chiropractors, massage therapists and other bodywork professionals as well as the general public.

Dr. Jeffrey Thompson created a Creative Mind Pattern as an Audio Program of captivating and beautiful music. With his powerful recording techniques and application of his on-going research, work, and awareness, coupled with his powerful recording techniques, he now offers to all the enhanced potential of developing one's own Creative Mind Pattern. The composition brings you to a natural state of heightened creativity and expression, more easily attained with repeated use, shall we say "training," with Dr. Thompson's beautiful rendition of what makes a mind a creative mind.

Lyall Watson - Supernature ( 73, PDF, 660k) 

Supernature deals with mysterious and inexplicable natural phenomena. It became a 1970s student essential, and was acclaimed for its stimulating treatment of exotic and unexpected scientific facts and discoveries. As a populariser of science snapping up unconsidered nerdy trifles, Watson ranged over astrology, paranormal phenomena, alchemy, circadian rhythms, palmistry, dreams and much else.The book went into 10 reprints in as many weeks, topped the bestseller list for 50 weeks, sold 750,000 copies in paperback and was translated into eight languages.

Lyall Watson (April 12, 1939 - 25 June 2008) was a South African botanist, zoologist, biologist, anthropologist, ethologist, and author of many books, among the most popular of which is the best seller Supernature. Lyall Watson tried to make sense of natural and supernatural phenomena in biological terms. He is credited with the first published use of the term Hundredth Monkey in his 1979 book, Lifetide.(This phenomenon referred to a sudden spontaneous and mysterious leap of consciousness achieved when an allegedly "critical mass" point is reached.) It is a hypothesis that aroused both interest and ire in the scientific community and continues to be a topic of discussion over a quarter century later.

He was born in Johannesburg as Malcolm Lyall-Watson. He had an early fascination for nature in the surrounding bush, learning from Zulu and !Kung bushmen. He earned degrees in geology, chemistry, marine biology, ecology and anthropology. He completed a doctorate of ethology at London University, under Desmond Morris. He also worked at the BBC writing and producing nature documentaries. He ran a safari company in Kenya and founded a marine national park in the Seychelles. 

Watson had an endlessly enquiring mind and never lost the habit of questioning received wisdom. Restless and nomadic, he travelled widely throughout his life, visiting Antarctica numerous times as an expedition leader and researcher. He introduced into his own body a tapeworm called Fred which, he claimed, unfailingly protected him from stomach disorders abroad. At various times he lived in America, South Africa, England and latterly Ireland, rising at six every morning to write for three hours before starting his day.
