American Gods is a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman. The novel is a blend of Americana, fantasy, and various strands of ancient and modern mythology, all centering on a mysterious and taciturn protagonist, Shadow.  AGWiki I haven’t read this yet but here’s the download.  American Gods.  And here’s a blow by blow analysis.  ForgottenGod And here’s the 1st of 12 online readings.  AmericanGods This book is to gothic what “whole lotta love” is to acid rock”
This guy’s got an interesting take on it.  “The mainstream concept of considering religious diversity and its negative effect on mankind as a social enigma, and attempting to find ways of making it work cohesively, has been, and is a total failure. But, the logical approach of attempting to discover the truth behind the phenomenon of multiple gods, and examining alternative explanations for it is ignored. A practical approach is to consider the alternatives and determine the logic of each of the possible reasons for this diversity.” WorldsGods As does the theosophical society.  Theosophy holds that all religions are attempts by the “Spiritual Hierarchy” to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each religion therefore has a portion of the truth   Theosophy Research ChrystalLinks is an excellent website for exploration in this area.  Have we entered the dawn of the age of aquarius ?  5thDimension This is getting spooky. Shadow appears to be the one I refer to as stranger, and Helga refers to as spectre in atenonol dreams.  This is a triple hit, enough to elevate Schrödinger’s “one mind” from “could be” to “best answer to date” .  Anybody have any thoughts on that?  Weird shit man.  GoogleBooks

“More than a tourist in America, but not a native, Neil Gaiman offers an outside-in and inside-out perspective on the soul and spirituality of the country–our obsessions with money and power, our jumbled religious heritage and its societal outcomes, and the millennial decisions we face about what’s real and what’s not.” –Therese Littleton “Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you-even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers and triumphs over all opposition.  Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world.” – American Gods p508

Is this in fact the dawning of the age of aquarius? Monkey see, monkey do? There may well be a “critical mass” required to shift a new behavior from being a fragile personal idiosyncrasy to being a well-established alternative, but creating a new alternative does not automatically displace older alternatives. It just provides more choices. It is possible that the washing alternative established by the monkeys on Koshima Island did create a morphogenetic field that made it easier for monkeys on other islands to “discover” the same technique, but the actual research neither supports nor denies that idea. It remains for other cultural experiments and experiences to illuminate this question.

The 100th monkey phenomenon is supposed to kick in when 1/3 of the population achieves awareness.  There definitely is something to this. The same phenomenon was observed in the Mogabi zoo, where chimps were observed washing cats prior to stuffing them down the garbage disposal, saving on plumbing bills. (Note picture above) The practice has since spread to all zoos. From what I have seen so far,  from the end of the ice age, our connectedness has been systematically destroyed leaving us as mindless robots, swarming in this ant warren of a society we live in.   

“It is not in the nature of man–nor of any living entity–to start out by giving up, by spitting in one’s own face and damning existence; that requires a process of corruption whose rapidity differs from man to man. Some give up at the first touch of pressure; some sell out; some run down by imperceptible degrees and lose their fire, never knowing when or how they lost it. Then all of these vanish in the vast swamp of their elders who tell them persistently that maturity consists of abandoning one’s mind; security, of abandoning one’s values; practicality, of losing self-esteem. Yet a few hold on and move on, knowing that that fire is not to be betrayed, learning how to give it shape, purpose and reality. But whatever their future, at the dawn of their lives, men seek a noble vision of man’s nature and of life’s potential. …” – Ayn Rand

“And then the man who bears the pitcher will walk across an arc of heaven. The sign and signet of the Son of man stands forth in the eastern sky. The wise will then lift up their heads and know that the redemption of the earth is near” – Bible “What lies ahead for Humanity? With all the problems we have, it’s hard to believe our future is bright. Inflation and recession, environmental deterioration, diminishing resources, unrest and oppression in developing countries, and apathy, loneliness and lack of direction in developed ones all combine to severely cloud the horizon…It may seem fantastic, but the signs in the heavens point to an extraordinary renewal in the years just ahead. If we recall some recent trends, this prospect doesn’t seem so outlandish. It wasn’t too long ago that we heard about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, and about the revival of spirit among the new generation. We can still hear the echoes of John Kennedy’s call to action and see the vision of Martin Luther King’s dream. Before he and his dream were shot down in 1968, he said we as a people “would get to the promised land.” The promise seems empty now, yet the planetary cycles support his prophecy. For what we discover when we examine these cycles is compelling evidence that a renaissance and a golden age is right around the corner.”


But with the we inside of me, I can see man in all his glory and depravity.  The gift has a dark side. Hope and foreboding coexist. Kumbaya Or maybe the age of aquarius will be a self fulfilling prophecy.  Or….. maybe I’m full of shit, I am crazy, don’t you know?   The problem, in my minds, is that neither of these views can be elevated to “best answer to date”.  Dunno. Troubling.

 

I left this for the webmaster at forgotten gods.
Hmmm!
You would be doing a disservice to mankind if you were to reveal the name of the forgotten god. It is the quest, not the arriving that is important. I speak to that obliquely here>  Epiphany Express
it is the grail in percival
I call it the key to ANN.
Learning makes it profound, teaching makes it trite.
The Forgotten God, like the vedic scripts, and the bible, and folklore, myths, legends are not to be taken literally. After all, what’s a meta phor?
The forgotten god is unique to each individual and profound, else it is dogma and trite. that is the whole point.
neil cautioned you on this here> Please don’t reveal the identity of the god/folkloric entity that people always forget,
so let’s keep it our little secret.
Hmmm?

The Age of Aquarius

When the moon is in the seventh house And jupiter aligns with mars The peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars This is the dawning of the age of aquarius Harmony and understanding Sympathy and trust abounding No more falsehoods or derisions Golden living dreams of visions Mystic crystals revelations And the minds true liberation Aquarius

“The Gaia hypothesis is an ecological hypothesis proposing that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth (atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere) are closely integrated to form a complex interacting system that maintains the climatic and biogeochemical conditions on Earth in a preferred homeostasis.”– Wikipedia This seems to be very similar to the Aboriginal world view. Ie man is an integral part of the world. Gaia’s Laughter

“Mother Nature can provide man’s needs, but not all man’s wants” – el Loco Gringo

The first council of Nicea AD 325, in an effort to expunge all feminity from christianity replaced father, son and shakinah with father, son and holy ghost. Shakinah was the feminine side of god. Analysis testing of “the last supper” by da Vinci reveals that a female figure was painted over, speculation was that it was Mary Magdelen. Just to Jesus’s right (that’s the guy in the red dress. Below) Also expunged was Book of Mary I and II. The wife’s vow, “to love, honor, and cherish” was replaced with, “to love, honor and obey.” The translation involved in the original ceremony was inaccurate. Thus the western world was left with all power and no finesse.

And then there is Azna. Mother God is the emotion. She can move, nurture, intervene and interfere. The relationship between Azna and earth is especially close. She is the harmonizer, the active helper and keeper of life. Her dominion is all living things on earth, from which the cherished image of Mother Nature was inspired. She’s been called the Lady of Lotus by Buddhists, as well as Ashara, Theodora, Sophie and Isis in faiths and cultures throughout the world for centuries upon centuries. Without the all-knowing, all-perfect intellect of Father God (om), we would be pure emotion. Without Azna, we would be pure intellect.

“A deep reverence for Mother Earth lies at the heart of the beliefs and traditions of the native nations of North America. Whether for inhabitants of lush, fertile lands, arid desert, ocean shores, or the harsh subartic, nature is the peoples’ bountiful provider, and earth the sustainer of life. As seen in the lifeways of ancient hunter-gatherers, trappers, and fishers through centuries of adaptation to new circumstances, homelands, and techniques, a profound respect for earth’s fellow-creatures – both philosophical and practical – permeates Native American society.” – Searching Eagle

I have heard the Aboriginal worldview described as Circular. Circular reasoning is an attempt to support a statement by simply repeating the statement in different or stronger terms. In this fallacy, the reason given is nothing more than a restatement of the conclusion that poses as the reason for the conclusion.I don’t see it that way, I see it as “wheels within wheels” and not even “what goes around comes around” but “what goes around comes around goes around etc”. For instance the Mayan 260 day calendar would seem to make no sense unless one considers that the gestation period is 260 days. Thus if a woman conceived on Tzolkin 10 she could expect the birth on Tzolkin 10, As this was synchronized with the Haab (365 day calendar) no calculation was needed

In keeping with Mr. Ted’s suggestion of using “whorls within whorls” rather than “wheels within wheels” I went looking again for cymatics. Even closer to reality however is “waves within waves”

These are some really cool videos. Highly idealized though. It is amazing what emotions can be evoked with such primitave instuments as the flute, the drum and the Moog synthesizer.

……………………………………………………………….
Ecclesiastes

What? eLG quoting the bible? Well, yes, the council of Nicea didn’t manage to redact all wisdom. Maybe they figured that with the mind crippled the unwashed masses would be unable to know when to turn
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Diane Benscoter has an interesting take on centering. She views memes as a viral self replicating mental infection which will spread to people whose self confidence immune system has failed.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..


The yin/yang symbol is a metaphor for the constant dance between the masculine and feminine energies within each one of us. Taiji is the balance of these forces. Balance allows this dance to take place. The taboo prevents it
…………………………………………………………………………………………..

Yin is the feminine energy, the intuitive, receptive, nurturing side of ourselves that is in connection with the Divine. Yin is the energy that yields to the forces around it, flowing, and smooth — the force that allows a seed to germinate in winter and makes water flow smoothly around a stone in the creek.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Yang is the masculine energy — the strong, action-oriented, forceful side of ourselves that gets things accomplished. Yang is the force that makes a seed sprout in the spring and makes strong flowing water move or sculpt the stones in a creek.

…………………………………………………………………………………………
So the council of Nicea has turned the yin/yang minds God gave us into a yang/yang mind preventing us from experiencing god for ourselves. It also prevents physcists from seeing that the universe is of a wave nature.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

<< Ecclesiastes 3 >>

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
7 a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.

Chi The life force power of the universe. There are jillions  of cults, procedures, techniques. myths, legends etc. alluding to tapping into the power of the universe. Even the bible mentions it.It is telling that I consider this somewhat mundane.  I picked Reiki only because it has a cool graphic.  Here’s some links if you’re interested ReikiPage Laying on of hands ReikiFAQ

Pissing with the wind rather than into it.  If the plane’s flying backwards, reverse the pitch of the prop.  Mr Sid’s going with the flow.  Pulling up the anchor on Mr. Ted’s much beloved sailboat.  I view it as not so much increasing power, but reducing drag,  Removing impediments,  Getting the mind back to the state it was created/evolved/unfolded in.  Using both sides of the brain.  Or Mr M’s getting in the zone. Try to see the big picture.

Get down to the real nitty gritty.  You can’t take the dancer out of the dance.  The dancer and the dance are interactive, but there is more happening here.  More than choreography.  More than music. More than lighting.  If you take this apart, the resulting parts are trite.  Trivial. Meaningless.  In the WHOLE is more than all that.  It is what we used to call a happening.  It is a synergy of all the parts, from the individual molecules of the dancers to the universe which supplies the parts when stars explode. We are star people.  Understand the magnificence of what is going on.  The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  Embrace the wonder of it all.  Have a happening

Removing Lattices and  Taboos.  Seeing the world in its interactive whole.  In short being normal.  Just recognizing that there are other ripples out there.  And acting accordingly.  The water’s fine. Jump in.  Unwrap your gift and enjoy.

The one I can relate most easily to, however in Mr Ted’s Hurricane.  Get the hell out of the way.  The same thing happened in 1968 with hurricane Bessie, and I got out of the way.  Went to Florida in fact.  I really don’t like hurricanes.

Some bad shit is coming folks.  The exact form is indeterminate.  But something is going to happen. Civilization, as it exists is optimized for maximized profit for the elite (Money Grubbing Scum)  The earth can sustain about 200 million people at the current US life style.  The US can support about 2-3 million at the hunter gatherer level.  I can see no solution that doesn’t involve a population reduction IMMEDIATELY.  Had there been a one child per family policy when I was in high school, we would just now be leveling out at about 4 billion, and perhaps beginning a modest decline.  The video below earth 2100 envisions an ecological disaster which will render civilization destroyed by 2100.  This is mere alarmist propaganda.  Nothing to worry about.  Mankind will be extinct long before then.  Hidden in the overpopulation problem is the problem of optimization.  For several thousand years mankind maintained a sustainable population by practicing crop rotation.  War, famine, disease kept the population down.  Typically there was a town surrounded by farmland.  Food was raised locally and the town provided the industrial base.  Assuming no unforeseen disaster, this town was pretty much self-sustaining.  Crops were rotated to allow the soil to recover.  Cattle shit in the fields returning nitrogen to the soil.  Civilization continued pretty much in this pattern until the 1900’s.  Settlers would establish a town in the center of the best farmland.  Then optimization began in earnest.  With a petroleum fueled economy the suburbs moved onto the best farmland. McMansions on their 1/4 acre estates overran the landscape.  Commutes that were minutes can now be measured in hours.  The local farmers were replaced  with mega-farms which no longer rotate the crops. Cattle are raised in pens in Fort Worth, the grain to feed them in Kansas.  The cattle are shot up with hormones to increase their growth rate which is affecting the population and the environment. Disposing of the cattle shit has become an ecological disaster.  Meanwhile the wheat farms in Kansas have to resort to petroleum based fertilizers and genetically engineered crops to maximize their profit, because they no longer have easy access to cattle shit. The farmland is being laid waste.  The government meanwhile has become a support system for maintaining this maximization of profit, providing the transportation, finance, infrastructure and propaganda necessary no matter what the cost.  It is the system that is the problem.

A failure in any component of this corrupt system will result in a collapse of the whole.  It has become incredibly fragile, a house of cards that can collapse at a moment’s notice.  And it will be swift. A massive rapid kill off of the population.   I see nothing on the horizon that can prevent this.  And it could be anything, any strain on the system will collapse this house of cards.  In high school the population of the earth was 3 billion, now it’s over 6 billion, this cannot happen again.  I have seen the damage that has been done to the ecosystem and it is irreversible.    We have passed the tipping point.  Housewives in el Segundo are recycling, and suburbanites in Des Moines are buying more fuel efficient cars. Diplomats are negotiating carbon credits at the UN.  It doesn’t matter.  There is an unseen negotiator at the table.  Mother Nature, and Mother Nature is a bitch.  She’s going to push the reset button.  You really screwed the pooch on this folks.  It is not the politicians, not the elite, not the nebulous New World Order, it’s not the democrats or the republicans, it’s not the christians or the Moslems or the Hindus.  It’s not an impact by an asteroid or invasion by aliens.  It is not Armageddon or Ragnarök. The problem is YOU.  YOU allowed this to happen.  YOU think that if you’ve got a six pack to suck on while watching the Superbowl everything is OK.  Well, it ain’t.   And you will find out. And it won’t be the hundred year decline envisioned in earth 2100, it will take less than a year.

Watch earth 2100. It’s a 9 part series.  I hope it scares the shit out of you.  You are idiots.  Look what you’ve done.  You have shit in your own nest, even an animal knows not to do that.  Hopefully the collapse will weed you out of the gene pool.

What to do? Dunno

As anyone following me knows, I am aware of two cognitive minds, and no one else is. So either I’m crazy or every one else is. If you feel I’m crazy you can take comfort in the knowledge you are running with the squirrls. I am fascinated by thinking, or specifically thinking about thinking and the effects of this dual mind we have on the thought process. Certain concepts resonate with me, the feminine god for one. This is to be a never ending post, as I continue to explore, feeding my hungry neurons. I will put these in a new catagory called Forgotten.

Road Not Taken

The first of these resonances is “The Road Not Taken”, a science fiction story in the mid 80’s. It opens with the Roxilian commander of a spaceship bound on intergalatic conquest. He sights out the quartz porthole and adjusts his course with a quadrant. He hopes for a new planet to conquer soon, the stench in the ship is overwhelming. The slopjars are overflowing, the animals have all been eaten, and the plants used to supply the oxygen have all been burned to hold off the cold of interstellar space. They’re running low on musket balls and the black powder is damp and misfires. All of the steeds have since died, but he is certain that their superior technology will allow them to prevail. The entire story is told from the point of view of the Roxilians. These beings are savages, this is a stone age culture with space travel. WTF? to make the story short, they land on the front lawn of the white house and the entire invasion force is blown away by the two dozen secret service agents in half an hour or so. What has happened is that it is humans that have taken the road less traveled. Space travel, time travel, teleportation etc. are relatively simple concepts discovered by most civilizations in a universe teeming with intelligence. Their progress has stopped because they were unable to analyze but thought only in a “right mind” mode.
Fascinating! Road not taken
