Four hundred days after 12/12/12, an eerie chill in the January 2014 evening air may send shivers up our spine, telling those of us Galactic pagans who stand at the open door to soul-consciousness that it is only a breath away.

This is no false media-promised ‘stairway to the stars’; more an energetic doorway offering itself now to propel us—aware or unaware—through the next steps—together—in evolution. To some of us who have been through the mill, the Siderealview is
BRING IT ON!

Archaic Units of Time and Measure
Classically, winter solstice—northern-hemisphere style—was what Greco-Roman male-dominant culture understood. While they borrowed Arabic constellations (gleaned from antediluvian astronomical study of both celestial spheres), leaving Islamic trails in the heavens around Al Nath, Mirfak, Rigel and Betelgeuse, they superimposed Latin names on important calendrical stars like the Pleiades, Sirius, Antares (in Scorpio, ‘rival’ of Ares-Mars for its red brilliance), and on a few favored constellations like Canopus and Carina in southern skies. Otherwise they concentrated heavily on renaming the northern zodiac.

Along with other Mediterranean cultures, they used the archaic cubit—length of the human forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger—the short cubit ranging from 17-18 inches.

‘The Universe is not thirteen billion light years across and self-made, as believed in the Illusion. Creation is over nine hundred trillion light years across and is still just beginning.

‘To inaugurate Creation, the Holy Trinity projected the Cube and Sphere one dimension down to the thirteenth dimension as a circle, hexagon outline—also called a cube—and flattened Y factor lines. The 13th-dimensional projection is known throughout all of Creation as that called a Cubit.

‘The Cubit is also expandable according to rule into multiferous combinations called Cubist matrices. The number of possible Cubist matrices is without limit. They are the genomes of Creation.’

Before he died on February 29th, 2009, John Burke, of BLT gave years of his life to study, along with his colleagues W.C. Levengood and Nancy P. Talbott, Dynastic Egyptians’ harnessing of energetic power in pyramid technology. See our treatise dedicated to John Burke in 2010, for an in-depth look at how his research crossed over into crop circle manifestation with similar results, more below.

“This energy force is capable of incising pictograms containing over a thousand elements with surgical precision, covering areas of up to 150,000 square feet, and with such unerring accuracy that ‘curtains’ of wheat one stalk wide are sometimes all that separate one circle from another. The perimeter walls resemble the seamless curve of a drum, and where inward-curving walls meet inside a design, the central point can be defined down to a single stalk”

“This force has been put into crop circles through thought processes to initiate a new source of energy now being created. Certain beings are receiving preparation to understand messages projected at this time. Power is being created through intellect of the scientist, knowledge is awakened in others; some are very close to the answer: an energy machine. This energy is only partially linked to magnetism.

“Rather, it is linked to the illusion of time.

“Similar to thought-transference, wo/man will be able to change the molecular structure of things, including herself. Within the energy-pattern of the circles we are giving you this information.”

In retrospect, Croppies were being prepared from around 2007—7/7/7 double CCs yin-yang + OM, 8/8/8 Eight crop circle images above, startling even the most stalwart unbelievers in their transcendant art—for what now appears regularly in our consciousness: the appearance of the miraculous in everyday life.

Biblical, Dark Age, Mediaeval and Pagan pre-Celtic consciousness was constantly prepared by belief, sacred ceremony and ritual, for revelation of the Divine within the prosaic. It is our misgotten cultural overlay which now clouds our vision of such appearances in our modern world.

But not for long.

Chualar Vineyard Year-End Crop Circle Surprise
Meanwhile, while nobody in particular was watching—all eyes in the Western World being directed to that gay commercial entity called euphemistically, the ‘festive season’—an energetic vortex surfaced in a Salinas county vineyard, twenty miles due east of Monterey Bay, California.

CCD microchip crop circle appeared within five miles of Highway-101 artery, which funnels northern traffic out of LA-LA-land towards the Redwoods. It lies close to where retired screen stars have their ‘country’ homes. This microclimate enclave where a full winter barley crop was available in late December to be etched in multiple decodable dots and numbers—to the delight of CC-geeks everywhere—is coincidentally the oldest artist colony in California; where the San Francisco Arts movement (art nouveau, art-deco, original ‘bohemians’) fled after the earthquake of 1906. Arts, music, dance theaters and open-air stages abound within twee throwback architecture of the Edwardian era. Its hinterland still has pioneer attitude, coupled with rich agricultural valleys, which John Steinbeck breathed into life.

Seasonal Swansong
Not being on the normal CC circuit, Monterey received rather scant attention from US media and local press at first, relegating the last appearance of 2013 Crop Circle season to the loony pile, Brit. equivalent of a ‘hoax circle’ (ladders + human stomping). To add to that unfortunate attitude, current landowners Scott and Debbie Anthony were suffering personal illness, ordering the formation erased without their seeing it, so all barley within its one-acre circumference has been flattened. Nevertheless its intricacies are too precise, with on-site inspection of field lay described pointedly by knowledgeable (but undercover) botanists as multi-layered in the best authentic CC tradition—so it is hard not to want to examine, dissect, reveal all it may proffer for 2014.

Full-Well Capacity
Relatively easily identifiable first off in the design is an integrated circuit etched on to a charge coupled device, CCD, pixel-latest techno-geniuses’ creation in film chip technology, usually made of silicon, forming light-sensitive elements called pixels. Each pixel can hold a maximum number of electrons, called its ‘Full Well Capacity’! This number can vary widely (10ke- to 500ke-), depending currently on pixel’s physical dimensions—bigger the pixel, more electrons it can hold. So, while capable of holding zillions of pixels, current film chips are set at 192×165 pixels. On a quantum level, camera chips holding excess electrons begin to ‘bleed’ them into neighboring chips, causing ‘blooming’.

Parable/fable for humans?: if you stimulate/feel joy, move into being in joy, you will spread it around! Are we, humans on the brink of a New Beginning, being guided through our own blooming? In our blinkered state, are we capable of flowering? And is traditional chip size no longer a parameter in electronic circuitry? Aha!

Future Speak: Techno-Talk in the Barley
Central button panel code in three precise rows of braille-type dots folded through interwoven barley was quickly identified by local symphony orchestra conductor Carl Christensen as depicting the number 192. Braille dot system enables his blind students to read and write through touch. In his opinion, the dots are in very specific order, “so perfect it’s almost like a machine did it. They are not off in any way, shape, or form.”
Three lines in braille read:

Iridium's atomic weight is 192, half-life 73 days

Iridium’s atomic weight is 192, half-life 73 days

192 192

B 192 1

192 192″

Simple message to the blind: awake, open eyes and see…
There are other implications, nuances in the design.
Seen as a simple clock face, aligned on 12-axis, numbers 1, 9 and 2 are repeated in descending size.

Chualar is a term from an American Indian language meaning ‘pigweed’, goosefoot, Amaranthus palmeri, a healing herb. It still grows in the canyon.

The glyph appeared overnight in barley in the strong December Quarantid meteor shower and during first onset of a solar storm which is still giving NASA, NOAA experts and several amateur CME-X-flare-watchers heart attacks. Ongoing since mid-December 2013, in the runup to our rendezvous with the center of the Galaxy, tomorrow January 4th, 2014, it has become a major storm—red panel sidebar right. Solar storms, as we know, tend to have major influence in terrestrial weather; but add the recent extraterrestrial bombardment of comet-ISON dust, near-earth asteroid impact and now the current evening showering of our planet by the Quanantids, what more is there to see?

Chualar township is a remnant region of California’s frontier that still produces food crops commercially, but along traditional lines. Salinas Valley agriculture, known worldwide as the breadbasket of California, supplies daily fresh produce to the nation. Also famous for its Pulitzer-Prize-winning native son, John Steinbeck, author of Of Mice and Men (1937), Grapes of Wrath (1939), Cannery Row (1945), Monterey now celebrates him at the National Steinbeck Center, a $5.2 million agriculture museum featuring Salinas Valley farming and Chualar history.

The small, unincorporated Chualar canyon community was given as part of Spanish Grant legislation to Juan Malarin, but acquired by David Jack, a canny Scots émigré from Crieff, Perthshire who exploited land grant liberality in frontier times in the transfer of rancho holdings to Americans during the 1860s. Not only was he considered the wealthiest individual in the county by 1880—accruing 30,000 acres in Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, Del Rey Oaks, Del Monte Forest, Fort Ord, and the spectacular coastline 17-Mile Drive, but his family had become famous for an American staple: Monterey Jack cheese. Much of the original Jack settlement is now natural reserve administered by Carmel, but the Anthonys’ 2000-acre grape-production farm was Rancho Chualar in Jack’s domain.

Cerebrally connecting sacred number, cheese, fresh natural produce, a township out of time, with iridium, hardest and most indestructible of the metals, probably meteoritic? a vineyard where the Grapes of Wrath may rise in reply? and the suggestion that Wo/Mankind is set to blossom? New technology, new fabrics, concepts confronting us boldly in the maw of the Ouroboros? What a plethora of choice.

Chualar Mexican land grant: two square leagues—50million square varas = 8,856-acres

One-Acre Chualar CC: 0.4047 hectare = 4047 square metres
One acre is defined as a strip of land 1 × 1/10 furlong, or 40 × 4 rods (660 × 66 feet) long

Back to the staples of life: cubits and feet; and a reliable food supply.

And, as many past crop circles have indicated, number and sacred geometry tend to play a central role in appearances like Chualar, c.f. Mexican crop circles in water-parched hinterland of Tlapanaloya, March 2011.

Before the foundations of the Great Pyramid were laid, men tried to ‘square the circle’, i.e. construct a square and a circle equal in area, using compass and ruler. Some of the greatest minds in history—architects, politicians, artists, musicians, philosophers, astronomers and theologians—have tried to solve this ancient riddle. Mathematicians come closest. It was termed ‘impossible’ in 1882 when Carl Lindemann showed that π is a transcendental number, cannot be calculated or written as a ratio of two other numbers. Decimal values of π are infinite, and it is not possible to construct the square root of an infinite number, therefore ‘impossible’ to square the circle with exact precision. That, however, has changed. See crop circle site of Bert Janssen who persevered in his interpretation; also work of dream expert and numerologist Joseph Mason. For in-depth look at 192×165=31680, several hours’ reading John Michell‘s amazing ‘Dimensions of Paradise’ (2001) is recommended. Simply put, numbers like 31680 resonate, resound, ring bells in our psyche.

With several alarm bells presently ringing from the Japanese side of the Pacific, the fresh natural quality of California’s breadbasket may indeed be at risk.


Synchronicities and Coincidences

It may help to look closely at some clear clues wrapped up in sacred number.
Iridium, atomic weight 192-with isotopes still being discovered—Ir-element-77 in the Periodic Table, between Osmium Os-76 and Platinum Pt-78, is currently darling of specialist computer and other software developers, for its durability in extreme conditions of temperature and stress. With its near-limitless computer chip capacity, its applications are endless—e.g. space exploration, in subsea platforms, within volcanic or tectonic environments where humans cannot go.

Iridium, rarer than platinum, probably caused extinction of the dinosaurs

Iridium, rarer than platinum, probably caused extinction of the dinosaurs

Iridium is the hardest known (workable) metal; marginally harder and rarer than platinum, to whose group of ‘white metals’ it belongs; element-77 on the periodic table, above. At molecular level, Iridium is a ‘paramagnetic’ mesh of tetrahedra*, and sacred octahedral-combinatory shapes, whose radioactive isotopes are still being discovered. Iridium metal, while phenomenally expensive to produce, is employed when high corrosion resistance at extreme temperatures is needed, as in high performance spark plugs, crucibles for recrystallization of semiconductors at high temperatures, and electrodes for the production of chlorine in the chloralkali process. Iridium radio-isotopes are used in some radio-isotope thermoelectric generators. Using X-ray spectroscopy, the jury is still out on whether Iridium, or its neighbor Osmium in the Table, is the densest metal known.

*explanation insert for followers of star tetrahedron, merkabah, octahedral geometry in crop design:

Star Tetrahedra: octahedron over stellated octahedron, the only full facetting of the cube, allowing upflow and downflow. Created from our original eight cells, the Star Tetrahedron is both our potential and a record of our experiences; balance of male and female, heaven and earth: all that is in a 3D world.
In accepting both polarities, embracing both, understanding we have those polarities within ourselves— knowing that without both we are out of balance—are first teachings of ‘Star Tetrahedron Consciousness’. It teaches balance of yin/yang through embracing both, inside and outside ourselves.
This does not mean giving up identity or silently condoning inhumane action. We are asked to embrace ourselves even more because we understand we are made up of masculine and feminine energies, creative and destructive.
We all have left and right hemispheres. In balance we use both. When we embrace both, we are one with the third dimension, capable of awareness, and embodiment that leads us into oneness or unity consciousness, and into the fifth (and higher) dimension(s). It is a balance of all without forgoing the uniqueness of each.

Back to Iridium: Given its rare molecular structure, its meteoritic state, applications in computer technology, previously the realm of the silicon chip, may be about to change.

From an extra-terrestrial point of view—with humanity’s oversoul—or the combined consciousness of the CC-community clearly demanding closure for the 2013 season, this may be seen as us giving ourselves a technological memory-jog. Industry has known, despite prohibitive cost, and apparent scarcity of Iridium deposits, that the metal’s near-imperishable mechanical and tensile strength makes it a miracle material in extreme conditions of modern human technology. On a camera chip, it flows and blooms according to capacity requirements, acting like the solid state equivalent of a wave, bringing new technology to screen environments and lightning-fast applications.

Yucatan peninsula's  subaquamarine Chicxulub crater, made by largest meteorite to hit Earth, may conceal Iridium-192

Yucatan peninsula’s subaquamarine Chicxulub crater, made by largest meteorite to hit Earth, may conceal Iridium-192

Its scarcity on Earth is almost certainly due to the fact that it is an alien: arriving here on the back of the behemoth meteorite which crashed into Yucatan and the Gulf of Mexico 66 million years ago, causing the extinction of the dinosaurs. The metal has been found nowhere else on earth, except within meteoritic crash sites. Geologists suggest, however, that given its high melting point, residual Iridium may exist in deeper seams beneath the Chicxulub crater, or elsewhere in places of high seismic activity, where volcanic heat may have melted the metal (heat-resistant to 2246ºC). So all is not yet lost!

It is therefore no coincidence that remaining member of the BLT team, Nancy Talbott, whose groundbreaking research of the 1993 Cherhill crop circle laced with an iron glaze of fused particles of apparent meteoritic origin will speak in symposium in June 2014 on meteorite elements in crop circle design. She gives the subject credibility.

… And for the True Geeks among us
Yet another interpretation of the central box of code is that it is pure computer programming: the -Jb switch, -R switch, beloved of html-creators, surrounding the number 192. As a dilettante, Siderealview continues to maintain supreme ignorance over such supergeekness, but it is safe to say the youth of the planet will understand the message loud and clear.

Musically, it is worth noting that 192hz is G on piano keyboard, and its toning resonance used in subliminal cure of stress, meditational facilitation and—apparently—in increasing functionality of sound systems, below.
Recent research relates ancient geometry, astronomy and sacred sites to musical ratio. The international standard of tuning is currently 440Hz = A [J.S. Bach/Nazi influence]. When corrected, the other octaves display ancient Gematrian sacred numbers relative to astronomy, sacred geometry, the Bible and the Bhagavad-gita along with exact longitude and latitude connections to pyramids and other sacred sites, see compassionate use of music in detailed but accurate historical context, Brendan Bombaci’s erudite Cymatics:Dash-of-music-an-inch-of-Sun, sidebar right.

Pure Sound is an area dear to our heart, and how we absorb extreme poles of light spectra continue to puzzle our greatest minds. Carl Sagan, before he died, was mystified how light could become a noise. Our generation has learned that the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum–from radio waves through microwaves, infra-red, visible light, ultra-violet light, to x-rays and gamma rays–are all massless particles (photons) of the universal energy known as electromagnetic radiation, or simply Light. Light waves are fluctuations of electric and magnetic energy through space, usually expressed (by humans) in wavelength or frequency.

Electromagnetic spectrum from radio to light

Electromagnetic spectrum from radio to light

In my years of experience in voicing systems, I’ve found that a system must have a flat-to-slightly-elevated response curve in the critical region from approximately 192Hz to 384Hz. It could be slightly elevated. This range is from one-half octave below middle-C (256 Hz) to one-half octave above; between approximately 192Hz and 384Hz is one musical octave in width.

When a speaker (or electronic component or cable) seems to be lean in this area, the sound will usually prove to be boring musically. Amazingly, components thatare lean in this area are often admiringly described as highly resolved, precise, articulate, etc. My description? BORING…
When this region is flattened, or elevated by a very slight amount, the music is infinitely more involving. Strings have more body. Brass has more weight, and a more burnished tone.

Orchestral music will have a balance (and subjective power response) more akin to live sound in a concert hall. Vocals will have much more palpable presence. The sound will be lusher. Guitars will ring out with a beauty that touches your soul.

Chualar conundrum: Braille-192+hieroglyphic-17+Morse-ISON+isotope divided by infinite π = July 2014?

Much controversy, anguish and tromping/denial of access has weighed down the 2013 crop season; Britain’s most heroic formations were ploughed under—within hours; no specific paranoia cited, but large operations worldwide are no longer as open to human traffic as they were in the 1990s.
For this reason, Rancho Chualar’s owners’ unfortunate malady resulted in sudden reversal of opinion: maybe it’s “genuine”, after all. Perhaps those believers out there aren’t so loony. Ooo, Cosmic Math Class in the Human Oversoul department: now, everyone gets to decode the message. Media circus arrived late to the party.

Remember Crabwood, 2002?

Messages coming thick and fast
Just in time for our meeting with Source.

Dark Rift: Return to the Cosmic Birth Canal
Each year, by Cosmic design, northern nights grow longer in prelude to our annual rendezvous with Galactic Center—that dark patch in the Milky Way—when the Sun, including us microscopic specks of energy clinging on to the plane of the ecliptic, all nine planets of our system as one, align one more time with our Motherboard-birth canal, the Creator-energy-vortex. The middle of our Milky Way Galaxy is wide open this year on January 4th. The portal remains open—our consciousness being assisted by the ‘blooming’ of its closest neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy crashing into us at imperceptible speed— before the sun spirals away one more time; in the past we should all probably have headed off for another year of peripatetic searching through infinite realms of (imaginary) space.

But this year we are being held momentarily, prompted—our consciousness feels it. Our bodies are more aware, our psyche primed. We are being reminded.

Our own Galaxy merging with Andromeda; note 'blooming' along our edges :)

Our own Galaxy merging with Andromeda; note ‘blooming’ along our edges 🙂

Which brings us full circle to the gentle message from above that alpha, beta and theta waves increase human capacity to expand, imagine, transform; and that our DNA is waiting patiently while we decide whether to join in the parade or not.

One more time, we are being prompted, asked to join the dance; getting a message from our own (inner) Sense to wake up, appreciate the phenomenal gifts provided by our Earth, along with exponentially more potential in our intellect, when used in true alignment: mind, body, spirit. Shall we join minds and bloom? Even that would start us on the road to Ascension: body would only follow.

Perihelion at Galaxy Junction tomorrow: let the Quickening with Andromeda begin.
Sounds like a catchy title for a tune.

New Beginnings: 2012 Hinges open Doorway to Consciousness

December 27, 2012

CONSCIOUSNESS: Great Gatherer toward Ascension

Princeton's Global Consciousness Project recorded 12/12/12

Princeton’s Global Consciousness Project recorded 12/12/12

The Great Cycle of the Maya has been sliding quietly shut. December 21st, 2012, foretold as long ago as 3114BC to be a cosmic door closing on ‘historic’ humanity, was said within the Maya themselves to herald the threshold of a new form of Man: the revealing of the knowledge of the Ancestors, or ‘return of ancient wisdom’, and the ‘gathering together of tribes’.

The Great Long Count Calendar of the Maya is not the only calendar to herald this moment, but it is certainly the most evocative and topical headline-hitter of all ancient calendars which come to a finale at this crucial crossroads in time. Similar sacred systems studied by early priesthoods [5000+BC] in both old and new world religions from the Assyrian ‘fertile crescent’ to the Siberian steppes, based their supreme knowledge and annual information of secret wisdom ‘given by’ the stars. It was common in all cultures, held sacred, and its ongoing calculation was handed down as sacrosanct.

Seen from the perspective of the NewAge self-awareness movement, many such ancient prophecies would appear to allude to man’s growth in spiritual knowledge, practice and frequency.

So when group meditations started happening worldwide on 12/12/12, the resulting reverberation, measured on the University of Princeton’s Global Consciousness Project, passed any previous measurement on their global consciousness scale which registers world consciousness fluctuations as a dot-graph chart.

This result has astounded Princeton Noosphere Project monitors; but contributing to this event has been a decade’s worth of mega-growth in world computer function/distribution, ensuring that more people now have access to a ‘network’ [television or computer] during December 2012 than ever before in human history.

This special solstice 12/21/12-end cycle event has had a larger [eastern] audience too, as the last full moon of the year occurs tomorrow, December 28th, see astro chart below for its potent Cancerian influences.

And this extended portal, related in consciousness to the thoughts we have continued throughout the year on this blog, comes now at a time when remarkably, the human race may just be ready for it. Certainly questions about human potential, personal growth, creating alternate realities are on many lips.

What has been surprising is the number of young people who had heard of the Maya Cycle Close, had listened to but not necessarily believed the associated doomsayer apocalypse scenario; because they themselves genuinely believed in the less-broadcast-more internet-wide alternative for hope-for-humanity.

We are saddened that our supposedly intelligent media should invade their youthful peripheral world, scoop up and serve vampires, blood-and-gore, fireballs at the end of a comet tail, in order to create a massive fear plot.

… and what a let-down to find no axis-reversal, no polar shift; but instead a wondersome star-show as spectacular as the December Geminid meteor shower and a stunning night sky full of anciently-grinding- and wheeling stars, galaxies, planets and satellites predicted by ancestral calculation and all draped in divine splendour of a black winter sky, for our delectation.

Hope for 2013 and the New Cycle
Instead of succumbing to a stupor of virtual/screen terror, or a mock-millennium-bug-rave-till-the-grave, many have found personal reason to use this season to go within. There has been in internet circles as well as sacred centers round the world an emphasis on attaining newfound knowledge, newdreamt dreams; remembering our connections instead of our separateness.

Much of the new consciousness is simple: a child could do it. That’s what all the ancient texts say ‘with the eyes of a child… you will but see…’ ‘…and a child shall lead them…’

The first hinge of the Great Doorway of Consciousness has opened. Mankind steps tentatively forward, knowing intuitively how to proceed but still not sure if it can really be true: that love is the answer; that we are all brothers and sisters. Then, seeing others do the same, our steps become bolder. By letting go fear of ‘others’, we find more ‘like’ minds/spirits gathering round, coming into our lives.

Several million people worldwide met together in consciousness during the twenty-four-hour standing-still of this particular solstice 2012, in order to pull in the stillness through meditation: and another estimated million will continue a Vedic tradition in celebrating the full moon tomorrow. These groups consist not only of Central and South American, indigenous North American, Inuit and Aleutian/Alaskan heritage; along with thousands of southern hemisphere celebrants in Vedic ceremonies of the Indian subcontinent alongside private sun- and moon-worship celebrations on Bondi Beach. More significantly, in the heavily-populated northern hemisphere, hundreds of thousands of non-denominational spiritual groups internationally combined their loving intent, pooling spiritual resources for world peace and loving brotherhood.

Flower of Life: at root of all growth from cell to consciousness

Meditation ceremonies for December solstice, Christmas, full moon and year-end [Hogmanay] will continue in many cases through New Year, according to private calendars-timing-invitation. These ceremonies include but are not limited to events associated with established spiritual communities worldwide [e.g. Esalen, CA, Scotland’s Findhorn Foundation, Jean Hudon’s (Canadian) Planetary Light Network; Drunvalo Melchizedek’s ongoing Hawaiian, New Mexican and Central American ‘flower-of-life’ mer-ka-ba visualization for Ascension [his advice on a possible “earth-shift” in an electromagnetic sense can be read here]; the Meeting of the Thirteen Grandmothers in Arizona; and even more prolific, thanks to the internet: another uncountable number of individual workshop/meditation initiatives continue to be conducted online, courtesy of Keisha Crowther, Gregg Braden, Caroline Myss, Baba Ram Dass, Humanity Healing Network, Eckhart Tolle, and David Wilcock; with other proactive media influences [like Daniel Pinchbeck, Evolver and Reality Sandwich continue to encourage from the sidelines…
with assistance from sacred L.A group events e.g. Dee Wallace, Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt environmental foundations.

From the perspective of the great serpent-hole at the center of the [Milky Way] spiral arm, the Earth is a precious planet. Teeming with millions of intelligent lifeforms, all potential cells of its supreme guidance system holding the planet in orbit as it passes through the gate. Its species are equipped with every last form of technology, spiritual, dimensional, physical and material: all the tools and toys of the imagination to play with and a perfect planet to perform on. And Mother Universe stands back for a few billion years [remember, time and space are relative, so this is an arbitrary number] and allows the species to have free choice.

Well, the Universe has left us to our devices now for something like five thousand years, give or take a Maya-contrived Baktun or two. And our consciousness has begun to hone itself: Ascension is a word on more lips now in 2012 than in, say, the post-war Eisenhower-era (where more common words might have been ‘duplex’, ‘superhighway’ and ‘warloan’).

And if not Ascension, then almost everyone [reading this blog] has spoken of or contemplated raising their own consciousness.

Where there is a meeting of consciousness, particularly with a a communal intent, a goal in view, Group Mind creeps in, allowing right-hemisphere/female-related sensations which the body knows intimately, like intuition, emotions, feelings, to take over.

During 2012 throughout the world, with so many spiritual groups holding conferences, earth-festivals, sacred ceremonials, to celebrate this exceptional milestone of time in our combined earth culture, it has become bigger than merely marking year Twelve-Twelve Gregorian; Hebrew year-5773; Maya 13.0.0.0.0.

“Where two or more are gathered in My Name”
New Testament, King James edition

If teenagers can feel it; it’s there, on the tip of our tongue, that indescribably elusive taste of freedom-creation-possibility; if the Occupy Movement was last year’s phenomenon in the ongoing cycle of change to bring human interaction back to the human level [rather than being ‘managed’ by its current soul-less bureaucratic one]; then Ascension is this year’s preoccupation, its golden meadow of opportunity.

If we don’t see it right off, does that mean that the consciousness-the meadow-isn’t there? or does our habit of expecting media-manipulated answers to be delivered on a screen overshadow our deep desire and conviction that the great cluster of global consciousness is finally on the move.

We are not the people who were born into this world six, five, four, three decades ago. Not only has our skin, muscle tone, brain function but every cell changed, regrouped and rebirthed. Our consciousness, too, however much we doubt, has altered.

Some of those early movers and shakers have entered another dimension, leaving a few of us to carry the torch. Others, among the early ‘believers/NewAgers have sadly lapsed into the retirement-relapse-ageshock-memorylane comfort zone of never again having to confront ideas of Ascension. Still powering on, though, there are the original NewAge believers, encouraged as each decade passed and another generation joined them to swell their numbers quietly.

Now the long-awaited and much-foretold EndDays are manifesting one by one, hour by hour, minute by minute, and we are being asked as each precious moment of it passes, or as each new thought, new emotion arises, if we are worthy; if we have done enough in this life to merit the honor of still being alive as this time of flowering for us humans begins.

Drunvalo Melchizedek
’s spent two years in a solitary cabin in isolated surroundings, attaining a personal state of peace, openness and belief. His description of a personal ‘shift’, a St-Paul on the Road to Damascus moment, Ascension-in-action have been likened to experiences documented by all indigenous shamanic practice. The Leary-Alpert-McKenna team’s 1990s research has never been outclassed as a source of information on the natural ‘alpha’ theta-wave condition. This enhanced state of awareness is one sought by all meditative practitioners from Zen to Tibetan to Sedona to Laos. Independent gurus give the same advice. Allowing the left hemisphere to relax and the right to come through; intuition, awareness of gratitude, feelings over logic, calming the voice of the ego into a submissive role.

Ken Carey was also drawn to spend several seasons in isolated conditions, growing his own food and opening himself to belief that what he needed would be provided for him.

Both emerged from their experiences professing the first step in wrapping oneself in this new blanket of love is silence, and faith that it will go on surrounding us.

As Mayan 13.0.0.0.0/Gregorian 21-December-2012 slips quietly to a close and the stars and planets of the firmament wheel once more out of the central axis of the Milky Way’s Dark Rift and begin again a whole new charting through unventured regions of the Galaxy, we raise our heads humbly to such a magnificent canopy and at the very least wonder how we came to be so blessed to be here at this time, at this change of consciousness.

Because, however tentative and faltering our baby-steps, they are indeed steps we are making, with unfathomably loving spiritual help [call them Angels, Archangels, guides, God, Great Spirit, Jah, JVH or Aunt Maud-channelled-in-heaven] to become our more-loving selves; and as we feel more proficient at our new openness, more brotherly can be felt towards each other and miracles can be projected and start to happen: in energetic and spiritual terms our imagination-creativity-self-field (a pure extension of our self), is made more ‘real’ every time we re-emphasize a loving solution over a non-caring one.

Perhaps no great revelation or white light appeared on solstice 2012; no fiercely threatening alien form of a ‘dark star’ in the Nibiru mold crashed through the heliosheath and stood breathing lethal gas into earth orbit.

But, as Carey said in his latest work
‘when all else are looking the other way, God’s work will be done’.

Shift of the Ages
It probably takes a prescient kind of mind to know just exactly when one went/goes through the shift, if such one does/did, or whether we are among those privileged to live in these times of unique growth for the experience of sensing human psyche-consciousnes-groupmind.

I believe we are indeed the ones chosen to be here for this shift in consciousness-dimension-level of understanding of a Greater Spirit to guide us unerringly through these uncharted waters… we have to let go of the oars, believe we are in good/godly hands, and allow the energies, the aegis of the new to direct and guide us. After all, in a brand new dimension, all directions are valid; and we have pointers to show us the way, if we only watch and listen.

It may be some months before we shall look back on these final moments of December 2012 and be able to say truly: ‘I was there then when the shift…’ or ‘I had a feeling in my bones…’ it may be February before we will feel a change in the air, new birdsong, but, let us believe our star-nurtured electromagnetically-magical circuitry is capable of more than we currently see; more like the gods the Ancients believed were directing our path.

I believe the Ancestors knew of which they spoke when they called this moment the Shift of the Ages. While we may be slower on the uptake than the Masters, I think we mortals made it through the portal and that great dreams are ahead for us, with help from our loved ones, new friends and old, virtual and in the flesh, and that those who continue to help “bring through” the “new reality” will grow in strength and numbers.

Novices in the Noosphere find Answers in the Corn

July 25, 2012

Entering the Noosphere as a Newbie

The best way for us to participate in the global awakening is to pay close attention to the little details in our own lives day-to-day. For the extent of our ability to bring love to the whole is in direct proportion to how much we are currently motivated by and expressing Love in our own lives. The greater we love, the greater our power to change the world.
Ken Carey, Timekeepers of the Human Experiment, 2012

Awakening-awakened collective of human consciousness
Teilhard de Chardin, in his Cosmogenesis, 1922, initiated a study of the planetary thought field, which he called the ‘Noosphere’—from Gk. nous, mind: his legacy continues in the ongoing research of this condition in the University of Princeton‘s Global Consciousness Project.

Within this sphere’s true nature is that ever-growing portion of the earth’s aura which is awakened-awakening collectively in human consciousness. Freud and Carl Jung made us all aware of our collective subconscious, but it is our long-dormant collective conscious which is now surfacing.

According to Carey, “Already awakening, this field of collective human consciousness will soon know itself for what it is, even as we realize that each of us is like an individual leaf on a tree, or an individual cell in a body. Even after this happens I expect that in order to minimize any disorientation this event will bring, the Star Maker will only gradually reveal its conscious Presence within us, slowly allowing humankind to awaken to the realization that people are not only One, but that we have a rôle as the Star Maker’s physical organ of consciousness—an organ similar to a brain—but more clearly understood in our new capacity as the guidance system for this particular planetary garden.”

The West is not the only culture preoccupied with the imminent appearance of the Other—Carey’s Starmaker, Terence McKenna’s Eschaton, Nevada UFO-spotters’ ET. In the southern half of the continent, the Aztecs await Quetzalcoatl, feathered serpent, Kukulcan returns to the Maya, and the Inca reunite with their Mother Pachamama‘s breast.

Ramayana & other Vedic texts describe ‘Vimana’ flying vehicles for the gods

In the East, the Persians/Assyrians visualized their sky-king-god Anu would reveal himself in a fiery chariot; Babylonian and Vedic gods had from of old flown the heavens in their Vimana flying ships, and so their frequent visits to earth were commonplace in the subcontinental consciousness.

There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.
G.K. Chesterton

In Kundalini, the Merkabah transports the body-mind-spirit through seven light-color-differentiated chakras-centers towards ultimate enlightenment-awareness; Stanton St.Bernard fairytale bauble, stage-1 Vimana vehicle; stage-2 Angel; stage-3 sundogs add sparkle, see above

Egyptian kings drew divine right through direct communing/worship of the Sun’s disk, giving them superhuman powers, which reinforced their people’s devotion. It was their belief that the afterlife—for which their psyche was prepared and their bodies mummified—was one with the gods, of eternal light, abundance, bliss and joy.

While Egypt and Sumeria gave us writing; and Arabia gave us number, none of the eastern civilizations—Roman, Greek, Judaic—can compete with the Maya for their ability to calculate human cycles of time. Their Tzolkin and LongCount cycles run with regularity and precision from a ‘time of origin’ in the Bronze Age [3114 B.C.], through their own recorded heyday and decline, into the present massively-predicted year of 2012; and continuing to a date of conjecture some one thousand years in the future. The calendar’s ability to make remarkable predictions, usually associated with the highpoints of the cycles of Venus, have added to its mystique; and the 2012 cycle timechange—when one ancient circuit completes and another begins—has led to a huge following of extremes, from doomsayers to revelationists.

We are already more than halfway through this apocalyptic year, and so public consciousness is alert to ‘signs in the skies’, eclipses, the Venus transit, and recent weeks’ massive and continuous solar flare assemblage from sunspot-1520 directed at Earth. Symbolism provided by the heavens has always had mass appeal. So, when the Earth seems willing to join in the party—hey, it’s 2012, isn’t it?—we all plunge in.

In crop circles, the messages have been hotting up: 2012 has been a year of a few choice locations, see my earlier posts, attracting multiple phases which have returned to stylize/enhance a formation or open up unseen aspects. Stanton St. Bernard’s bauble, above, is a prime example. Wanborough’s latest development—freshly-laid green interlacing and highlighting previously laid-down dimensional design, top—shows a classic star tetrahedron of interlocking triangles reminiscent of the Merkabah, or ‘Chariot of the Gods’.

Star tetrahedron, sacred geometrical shape of the spirit vehicle, Merkabah

It is the vehicle used by Ascended Masters and those advanced in the discipline of meditation and self-mastery to ascend to the next vibrational level of consciousness. The Merkabah, right, is itself a symbol of the Ascension process, which humankind is presently beginning to experience. This ‘chariot’ or device used by the gods is a metaphor for one’s own ability to activate within the human mind and energy body a synthesis of mind-body-spirit which transports the soul to higher vibrational states and ‘another’ dimension.

It is consistent with crop circles–particularly those of 2012–that designs also present multiple interpretations.

Through a language that’s possible for most of us to understand the crop circles, with apparent ease, carry trains of thought over thousands of years that are both transformative and liberating. They seem to serve the function of seer, sage and mantra. We prosaic new millennium types have no priesthood to guide us, no Delphic Oracle; so pictures in the corn do it for us. It worked for the Egyptian/Sumerian priesthood, who spared no effort in using every available surface to proclaim the existence and draw pictures of another dimension (their ‘after’- or future-life), so the people might understand.

ET makes an appearance Hinton Parva CC July 25th

Now, millennia later, we so-called evolved mortals are being given similar instruction—a picture language with recurring specific symbols—from our ‘priesthood of light’, our own ET, superconsciousness communicating from a higher frequency.

It seems we are being shown a series of objects which exist in a higher dimension, so that our vision and perception may become clearer. Each summer, via an ephemeral canvas of wheat, barley and maize, we’re being taught telepathically: and each year-end we’ve learned more than we knew before. And the learning curve is rising…

Meanwhile back at the Wrekin—that ephemerally-balanced strip of sacred mountain and green getaway for the Midlands [Wolverhampton literally 35-minutes away, 24 miles along the M54], a remarkably sun-drenched crop design appeared July 21st—three spheres on a tridecagon background—a-13-sided polygon—to mark the fifth appearance in Shropshire in a month. While at first glance it appeared to be yet another solar flare, decoders were quick to point out that the circular ‘planets’, ringed Saturn, Mars and Moon, are conjunct Spica in constellation Virgo in exactly this configuration in the night sky on August 4th, 2012. It is the second crop circle to alert us to this date—see ‘polar clock’ CC at Manton Drove, June 2nd. Astrologically, the Moon also aligns with Neptune on that day: Roman equivalent of Greek god Prometheus who ruled Oceans and Earthquakes!

Then today, a miraculous transformation of a field near Windmill Hill, Avebury, points to the same date: ten days from now when all eyes (perhaps) are focused on the Olympics Men’s Athletics, it might just be possible that our world may be transformed by a similar light-enhanced saber, slicing through our consciousness—as light pierces everything; even darkness—to bring our embryo Noosphere into reality: so we can see it for what it really can show us: a way forward through the prosaic daily drudge that many people call life, and remind us that we are capable, within our hearts, minds, and bodies, of seeing the greater picture; of rising to the expectation of our ancestors, who predicted that this year—nay, this very day—would come to transform our world.

Too Distracted to Notice?
Ken Carey feels it is likely that disruption by solar flare will be the mechanism by which the general populace is distracted when world communications go down.

Distraction is what it’s all about, you know—the worrisome scenarios of the “Doomsday Preppers,” fears of a global financial collapse, periods of time without mass communication, inoperable military satellites that will (along with the absence of field communication) bring wars to a standstill. Not all of these things will occur of course, but those that do will do so merely to distract people while God’s real work is taking place.
Ken Carey, 2012

If Ken Carey is right, and his intuitive communications have been remarkably accurate so far—Return of the Bird Tribes, Starseed: the Third Millennium, Vision—then let’s pray that any solar cataclysm which presents its earth-facing power towards us in ten days’ time, will bring with it the long-presaged Saturnia Regna, the Golden Age, when humankind may begin anew to behave as was always intended: with liberty and justice for all: certainly; but also with kindness and compassion. We have it in our genes. It’s in the all the histories. Are we so ‘distracted’ that we are unable to see the real thing when it starts happening before our eyes?

Crop Circles 2012: Archive Retrieval from our own Consciousness

May 2, 2012

“Now it begins… needles and pins…” Miss Toni Fisher The Big Hurt

The 2012 Crop Circle season is a little late, but it is underway. This Wiltshire pattern arrived in a night of heavy rain, after a month of downpours, but showing no sign of crop abuse (stalks intact); more rain since then has, however, had an impact. Britain’s second crop design for the season appeared in oil seed rape, at Yarnbury Castle, Winterbourne Stoke near Stonehenge, last Saturday–April 28th–on the same day as European-African swallows returned en masse to their British breeding grounds.

Alton Priors Code-tailed Swallow crop circle of June 2009 has never been 'decoded'

It is an interesting coincidence that one of several crop designs imprinted in code–one which the ‘experts’ have yet to decode–is the gigantic swallow crop circle of June 27th, 2009 at Alton Priors. It appeared one year after–and in the same field as–a herald swallow, without coded tail.

world communications fracture?

We have blogged before on the archetypal swallow and its significance in all northern cultures. It symbolized loyalty, faith, honor, love, hope and safe return. In this post on swallow symbolism, many cultures look to the bird as a representative of the light.

On the other hand, code has been penetrating our consciousness shields in other ways…

Even before the European crop circle season began, on April 15th at East Kennett, the honor again fell to Hidalgo province, Mexico, to lead the crop circle world in astonishment, as overnight a ten-acre wheatfield was used as a cosmic database whiteboard, like a screenshot from ‘The Matrix’. Mexican authorities and croppies worldwide are still trying to untangle the web of “alien” words imprinted in the ripening grain, which delighted computer code freaks, who set about converting it into electronic instructions. Locals in the northern suburb were delighted to be the ones to witness the formations being made, reporting lights descending during the night, and ‘buzzing’ while the crop was being imprinted. When the field was monitored next morning, readings of great fluctuations in heat, and sparking electromagnetic static were measured and recorded. The team’s compasses didn’t work, and the local farmers’ cows wouldn’t give milk the following day.

When Tula-Iturbe Farmers noticed that the code embedded in growing wheat was allowing the crop to continue to grow, as, according to the young reporter, none of the stems in the whole field was broken, they were even more convinced that they were being singled out for a cosmic message. “The writing in the field happened in such a short time and there was no noise except for the light sparks”, admitted one resident.

The event occurred on the night of February 27th, 2012 during the Mexican festival to celebrate the national flag–Dia de la Bandera. Rural Tula-Iturbe is a northern satellite community of Tula de Allende, the city famed for standing within the bounds of ancient Toltec capital, Tollan-Xicocotitlan, see this report on last year’s crop circles that appeared in Tula at equinox–one of Mexico’s most celebrated festivals.

World communications blackout?
The Winterbourne Stoke glyph could not be more different from the Mexican formation; but its small, contained design is somewhat similar to the logo for one of Earth’s largest telecommunications corporations. It is tempting to suggest that the positioning of the crop design so that the middle axis lies across one of the tractor ‘tramlines’, enhances the fracture between left and right curves, positioned offset from one another–and emphasized by the median (machine-made) line. Given the remarkable recovery of our sun from solar minimum of a few years ago, its recent active storms, plasma CMEs–coronal mass ejections–of almost weekly M- or X-class flare [alerts on the NOAA solar-geomagnetic indicator, sidebar right] producing subsequent electronic disturbances and power outages; it is a short mental leap to seeing the Winterbourne Stoke design as shorthand for a breakdown in world communications; and it is too much of coincidence that the ‘logo’ appeared only twenty miles due south of that estimable telecoms corporation’s British headquarters in the ancient Wessex burgh of Malmesbury; but I run ahead of myself…

Astrolabe crop circle below Milk Hill, solstice week 2009, appeared in three phases, the tail code manifesting last; its message remains undecoded


Celestial happenings in 2012
Solar disturbances
aside, there are several other events in the heavenly lineup for 2012, not least the long-awaited transit of Venus on June 6th:
May 4th: partial lunar eclipse, visible off Mexico
May 5th: full ‘supermoon‘, closest to earth (perigee at 221,000 miles instead of usual quarter-million mile distance);therefore “large”
May 4th-5th peak of Eta Aquarids, meteor shower from debris of Halley’s comet
May 14th first standstill Venus during retrograde loop
May 20th annular eclipse of Sun, visible in Pacific states and western U.S.*
June 4th partial lunar eclipse, visible Asia N.America
June 6th transit of Venus and Inferior Conjunction
November 13th 2012 total solar eclipse in which sun and moon align with head of the Serpent (constellation Serpens), visible only in Pacific Polynesia
November 18th Solar system conjunct dark ridge Galactic Center
Nov 28 partial (penumbral) lunar eclipse.

*Alone, May’s annular eclipse (sun’s disk not totally occluded) will stimulate response from thousands of daytime viewers, as the path of the phenomenon starts early afternoon on the Oregon/NoCal border, moving through Nevada, Utah and Arizona, passing in late afternoon over a corner of Colorado, New Mexico, and ending at sunset in Texas. But then, two weeks later, tens of thousands will be geared up to watch the rare transit of Venus‘s solitary disk, as it crosses in front of the sun, from our earth-view–highest visibility in NW Pacific states. This paired event will not happen again this century.

At the beginning of a season, it is easy to lapse into speculation of how the soon-to-come surprises will impact our consciousness: for a group awareness now exists, watching as this long-heralded year opens its doors to never-before seen messages in the corn. If one believes that Consciousness creates Reality; then to no small degree the Crop Circle Community, worldwide, combines its anticipation–swallow-code: hope, expectation–to ‘create’ whatever comes next. It is only our preoccupation with the external measurement of Time which is seen by our logical conscious mind as a hurdle to understanding what our subconscious is already working away merrily on.

To a degree, that scenario completely ignores the fact that the Earth herself, a biological, pulsing, cohesive, supportive (sentient) being, may be capable of sparking electromagnetic vortices–like the subterranean aquifer of Wiltshire-Salisbury Plain–into producing high sonic, low-resolution heat, electrostatic charges which twist and manipulate plant stems into ethereal forms.

However potent is Earth’s own energy, it is on record that previous crop circle groups have combined their meditations/expectations of a design, willing it to appear; and been gratified when something close to their dream manifested.

2012 is already hyped as Apocalypse, EndTimes, Rebirth, New Aquarian Age, but it is also the time when the Maya predicted we would renew ourselves as a (human) race; when their Great Cycle would climax, and it would feel to us like ‘coming home’–their and the Hopi’s ‘Return of the Ancestors‘.

the alternate view...

Whichever way you see this exciting new start in Wiltshire: as a simple manufactured work of art by fairies, or aliens without human feet; as electromagnetic current produced by the conductive Wiltshire limestone aquifer; or as a physical manifestation of our own human Group Consciousness; I believe that, at some timeless level, we are retrieving our own memory archives, our own record of our growth together as a world society: delving into the Akashic Records to pull out yet another surprise season of meaningful designs which will keep much of humanity on the edge of its seats for the rest of the performance.

Magnificence of the Three-Six-Nine and Timing of the Eschaton

March 6, 2012

The Transcendental Object at the End of Time

Kahauale'a: seismicity and solar flares = son et lumière

If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the Universe
Nikola Tesla Никола Тесла; Serbian American electrical/mechanical engineer and inventor (1856–1943)

Nikola Tesla's Tower: he invented the Tesla coil in 1891--still in use 120 years later in radio, tv and electronics

“(I have conceived) a means…for man to transmit energy in large amounts, thousands of horsepower, from one planet to another, absolutely regardless of distance. Nothing can be more important than interplanetary communication.”

“My flying machine will have neither wings nor propellers. You might see it on the ground and you would never guess that it was a flying machine. Yet it will be able to move at will through the air in any direction with perfect safety, higher speeds than have yet been reached, regardless of weather and oblivious of ‘holes in the air’ or downward currents. It will ascend in such currents if desired.”
Nikola Tesla on his self-energizing craft

“Many recent crop circles presaging mathematical/symbolic resonance/code have appeared near transmitters/antennae. Tesla was fascinated by the ‘attraction’ antennae/lightning rods held for lightning.

History–the Shockwave that precedes the Eschaton
McKenna said: “Nothing is unannounced. If you are paying attention, stuff comes down the pike. First a little wave, then a medium wave, then the tsunami.

“This is what it’s like when an entire species prepares to move on to the next dimension” Terence McKenna, speaking in 1999.

‘We are in the shadow of this transcendental object at the End of Time; we are all gathered here at the endgame of processes–we are about to become unrecognizable.’
Terence McKenna on Omega Point or Eschaton

He calls Eschtology the ‘study of that Last Thing’; the Thing we are still unraveling: that ‘concrescence of becoming’. Just as Carl Sagan released his belief systems towards the end of his life, McKenna had doubts. He didn’t want to die; at one time he believed death might be overcome.

He tended towards Eastern thought, (*influenced by Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit monk); his viewpoint was suffused with mystical theology of Eastern orthodox Christianity which is teleological, Eschatological and Universalist.
He did believe that the Universe has purpose towards hyper-complexification, or advanced organization. He predicted it would occur faster and faster. “In this state there is an illusion which makes it appear as if Nature is tending towards something–towards caring.”

“We are on the brink of understanding between Western space-time-matter and the energy dynamic, where an event is NOT pushed from behind, but attracted by something ahead. The Universe is under the sway of the Transcendental Object at the End of Time. All Nature aspires to this state of perfect Novelty. Nature abhors habit; so it produces Novelty at every level.”

According to the traditional view, provided in the last 200 years by Science, we live in a ‘very ordinary galaxy in a very ordinary Universe’. But, if drawn by the Attractor, we (human beings) suddenly return to center stage, become important in the Scheme of Things, because we are presently the most novel species on the planet–evolving most rapidly–as part of the Cosmos’s own tendency towards higher order. ‘More than that, we are the carriers,’ says Terence.


Most novel development since sliced bread

Symbiosis: Man + Machine = Superconsciousness

Today, as we draw ever closer to that transcendental object at the end of time, TOATEOT, Humanity represents the cutting edge of complexity. The whole process is one of moving towards complexification, his Novelty; our Fusion as one Consciousness; the Omega Point.

When Omega arrives, Humanity will have reached the finite limit of the capacity of the body. It is then, McKenna predicted, we will “‘make it with machines’!: These machines are time compressors; they give us a false sense of eternity.”

He predicted Consciousness and Language would be the keys.

Our entire civilization cannot move a marble at the speed of light, but we can move information at the speed of light…
Terence McKenna on the human-machine symbiosis

Donna Haraway, "A Cyborg Manifesto: Science, Technology, and Socialist-Feminism in the Late Twentieth Century," in Simians, Cyborgs and Women: The Reinvention of Nature (New York; Routledge, 1991)

How could he know, thirteen years down the line from that prediction, that today we would be knee-deep in our umbilical connection to the Universe via the Internet? We are capable of holding three conversations at once, share omnipresent exclamations of momentary excitement, the discovery of a new spring flower: daily affirmations of our connection. We check out fifty blogs while the washing machine churns and still find time to email parents-child-friend. Last week I was invited to (and spent the evening at) a Blog Party.

There was absolutely no difference in my mind between attending the party in the ethers and one in person in the real world, except for the lack of champagne slipping down my throat. Brain synapses registered the same: maybe an even higher sense of ‘anticipation’ because some of our new Internet friends we’ve known for such a short time. We are only just getting the hang of this symbiotic wo/man-machine relationship; but it’s fun. Isn’t it? As Terence said, in coming together, we are becoming one Consciousness.

McKenna knew this time would come because he was tuned in–through shamanic conviction–to that experiential-knowing of our deep connection through our bodies to Nature to Earth-Solarsystem-Galaxy arm-Universe.

If the thunder don’t get you then the lightning will

“We now hold a catalyst for the human imagination of sufficient power that if we use it, we can deconstruct the lethal vehicle that is carrying us toward the brink of the apocalypse. And we can redesign it into a kind of starship that will carry us and our children out into the broad star galaxy we know to be awaiting us. But it’s a cultural test Nature is giving us. Intelligence is a grand experiment, upon which a great deal depends… and if it proves inadequate, Nature will cover it over with the same kind of cool impunity as she covered the dinosaurs, the trilobites…”

As McKenna’s own death drew near, his compassion for his fellow Man surfaced as the closest he ever came to faith in Universal Intelligence.

Glimpses into that Mind brought him into close alignment with Tesla’s own wonder of the Universe–and Number (top). The “magnificence of the 3-6-9” is the Phi spiral which entwines through everything. Both Tesla and McKenna spoke of the marvel of the Fibonacci sequence [3, 6, 9, 15, 24, 39…] and the stunning fractal it reproduces in Nature: from the Julia Set, Mandelbrot kidney-shape and the spiral of growth in plants, to the way galaxies spin in whorls and spirals: each according to an ever-expanding sequence of numbers–Nature’s fondness for one-third and two-thirds–themselves fractals of a greater whole.

The 'Julia Set' cropcircle appeared at teatime July 7th, 1996 next to Stonehenge, to the amazement of visitors. Even their trails have Fibonacci beauty

“We wonder why numbers–the product of the human mind–are so incredibly powerful for the description of Nature? Numbers arise in the depths of human restless emotion. What the relationship is of these things to each other is a deep mystery–the most difficult question for philosophy; one not even asked until 20thC–but it indicated a fundamental congruence of processes which are mental and at the same time relate to the world of Nature itself.

Phi spiral form in Fractal Mathematics

“I am an inventor/purveyor of a mathematical theory of Consciousness. I believe that, more powerful than any atom smasher or subtle than any space telescope, is the human mind. The human mind is the most subtle and superb of all instruments for the study and measurement of Nature.

“When we look into ourselves, we discover the same process that we discover in the birth and death of a species, flow of a river, collapse of a corporation or flowering of a love affair. Somehow this process is under the aegis of some sort of universal equation or description, so it doesn’t matter if it’s the birth or death of your hope, or the evolution of the Pacific Ocean. Processes always occur in the same way. Therefore congruence between the mental world of human beings, the abstract world of mathematics and the world of Nature–it’s the same Universal Stuff. This is why the concept of ‘truth’ can have some meaning.” Terence McKenna

...or we could, like the playful dolphin, keep up the game in the hopes that the Universe, in the form of a helpful humpback, might surface and give us the ultimate ride...

His predictions reflected his beliefs: that the human race is facing a dilemma: remain fixed in the plane of matter–or take off and find we have wings. He thought the amphibians must have had similar thoughts ‘…should we go up there and breathe the atmosphere… can we make it?’ Unlike the amphibians, we are breaking from the plane of matter; hurtling towards the Attractor at breakneck speed. The process is now in place, so that we must totally rewrite the script. No-one knows what will happen in the next 100 years, let alone in the next 100 days.

We are becoming a Community of Mind. But, ultimately, the only person in there is you.

‘You can argue, discuss and scientifically examine all you like, but it comes down to the same thing: Nobody understands what is happening. Not Buddhists, not Christians, not Government scientists, not anyone you know. So forget ideologies. They betray, they limit, they lead astray. Just deal with the raw data and TRUST YOURSELF. Liberate yourself from the Illusion of Culture. Take responsibility for what you think and what you do.’

We are about to make some new kind of leap. Before you enter the zone, you are an animal; after you leave the zone, you are a god. In the zone you are a schizophrenic and there’s a fire in the Madhouse at the End of Time. TMcK

In the expanded New Age version, based originally on Eastern Orthodox ideas of Eternity–but quantized to fit with parallel universes, relativity of time and space, and the effects encountered in dreamtime and out-of-body experiences–the Eschaton, the ‘last thing’ has already happened. In *eternity/no-time everything already is, was and will be. So we can theoretically, from our position within (enclosed) time, already access the Eschaton in certain states of awareness. Also, we can choose to live as though continuing in such an awareness. In McKenna’s credo, it is extremely important to persevere: to live that belief, once experienced.

Both McKenna and Tesla were steeped in Nature: Tesla invented means to draw free energy from a naturally-occurring waveform attracting lightning to the earth; McKenna lived the last years of his life surrounded by his beloved wild Hawaiian forest, in his committed belief that Nature speaks, if one but listens.

Findhorn Foundation , a 50-year old Intentional Community in NE Scotland, was created around a Group Mind calling itself the Devas/Nature Kingdom. Dorothy Maclean, 92, the last of the community founders, continues to teach/write and spread Nature’s spiritual message widely. In her long life she has dedicated herself to sharing that vast store of knowledge imparted by the plant kingdom. She started small: the Deva of the Sweet Pea was first to speak to her. Still others have written/spoken of the wisdom given by Nature Spirits.

Virgin coast redwoods, sequoia sempervirens: Humboldt Co Freshwater Reserve, saved from clear-felling by Julia's treesit in Luna

Julia Butterfly-Hill–treesitter par-excellence–who almost singlehandedly saved swathes of virgin Redwood forest (Freshwater, CA, early 1990s), says her Sequoia host, Luna, whispered to her–mostly at night.

Several indigenous cultures, followers of the back-to-the-Earth movement–of which Ms Maclean and thousands of surviving Baby Boomers are a part–along with an upsurge in much younger Green/Alternative communities–advocate returning to ancestral ways of living in harmony with our surroundings; that we need to return to a state of reverence and respect for the Earth. Kiesha Crowther, Nassim Haramein and Drunvalo Melchizedek foresee mass exodus from cities and towns, should ‘earth changes’ become the norm.

McKenna would see our present earth-battering by solar flares (M-class flares yesterday, X-class flares today, see NOAA index, sidebar right) as yet another sign of the approaching Eschaton. I think he would again offer his previous advice: to take responsibility for how we think and what we do.

And may we have faith that the Universal Mind–manifesting as our Supreme Intelligence and Oversoul–and having our best interests at heart, will lead us with a kindly hand.

11:11:11 Spark in the Park~ Collective Ascension

November 11, 2011

Kuwait's DNA spiral building; a little disconcerting if you're taking the elevator

The religion of the future will arise from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as “a meaningful unity” Albert Einstein, 1929 (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955), named The Great Relative by the Hopi

Six months ago, in early May, Celtic Beltane, at the time of the Festival of Wesak, primary date in the Buddhist calendar, Zen meditation/self actualization week, pinnacle of spring in the Northern hemisphere, many non-Buddhist people around the world were also taking time out to focus their thoughts and direct energy in appreciation of a bountiful season, along with a wish to improve the lot of Planet Earth.

All the ones
Now as the hinge of the seasons swings open another door — the 11:11:11 gateway — Celts and neo-Celtic groups the world over celebrate Samhain, the beginning of ancient Celtic New Year. The West remembers the armistice days of two world wars. A week ago Pagans had their Hallowe’en and the Roman Catholics their All Saints. Guy Fawkes was heralded as the 16thC equivalent of Occupy Westminster. Tonight the Moon reaches Full orb in Taurus. Astrologers worldwide are harnessing the predictive power of the planets with the changing season. As astronomers study intruders into the moon/earth system, numerologists are fascinated by this unique date, All the ones, statistically rare in any calculation or calendar count.

The Maya Longcount calendar continues on the runup to 13.0.0.0.0 which coincides with northern winter solstice. Many tuning into the Internet expect something awesome to reveal itself on the Day of all the Ones.

November 9th Asteroid YU55-2005's close encounter with the Earth-Moon orbit system

As if to emphasize the coming-together of celestial forces, the heavens also provided a marvel to delight all camps: an asteroid coming close enough to Earth to bruise the ionosphere. On Wednesday, November 9th, potentially hazardous object, (PHO), asteroid 2005 YU55 strayed beyond the Asteroid Belt (Mars-Jupiter region) and wandered into Earth orbit –flying through between us and the Moon. The Nibiru-Planet-X camp were appeased by a close flyby without having to concede defeat in calculation of size. Backyard telescopes had a picnic, all searching to outdo each other’s photographic documentation and video records of the nearest-Earth flyby in living memory. Not quite as spectacular as the December 2009 Norway Spiral as a Sign-in-the-Heavens, but a close second.

Mount Arunachala, 'throne of Brahma' near Tiruvannamalai, Chennai-Madras, SE India, where Karthigai Deepam Festival of Lights is held by Tamil Hindus during November full moon

Every year during Karthigai Deepam festival (November-December full moon, November 10th), Tamil Hindus in SE India walk in sacred procession around their sacred mountain (Arunachala, right) and, as each night of the nine-day cycle leads up to full Moon’s conjunction with the Pleiades constellation, more lights are added in all homes, every temple, and oil lamps (Deepam) are placed in front of houses, increasing rows of lamps in the streets, until darkness becomes as bright as day. When full moon arrives, a huge ghee-filled vat of flame is kindled on the summit itself, seen for miles around, and it is common for celebrants to experience spontaneous healing, witness lightning, light flares and other heavenly phenomena appear over their sacred mountain. The lighted lamp is considered throughout India to be an auspicious symbol, believed to ward off evil and usher in prosperity and joy. All told, half the Indian subcontinent are celebrating, praying, communing with their gods right now and joining in with the same Unity Consciousness that was prevalent at a counterbalancing world festival six months ago, during Wesak, see above.

Spark in the Park

A similar unity consciousness is quietly making itself felt by the OWS movement, now 50 days on. While establishment media broadcasting worldwide continues sparse reportage, it is becoming clear that the movement is not only not going away, but is, according to David Crosby (above video with Graham Nash in Manhattan) attracting the same energy he saw as a young musician at anti-VietNam peace marches in the 1960s. He states in the interview: “…(Zuccotti) Park is only the Spark. We’ve just returned from a (music) tour in Europe. There they think America’s finally waking up.”


View from the Wheatfields

A series of wheat crop circles imprinted in Santa Catarina state, Brazil, only kilometers from where November designs first appeared (2008, 2009, 2010)

Almost as an afterthought, the ‘intelligence‘ behind the Circlemakers, points out that celestial signs are on the cards for the forseeable future. Four crop circles have appeared in succession since Hallowe’en, concentrated in a specific area of Santa Catarina. Brazil has only recently joined the crop circle ‘hub’. These designs are placed in the same area of Ipuaçú, where Brazil’s first crop circles appeared three years ago — to great local acclaim — only a few kilometres from where these latest ones were found. The phenomenon repeated itself in 2009 and 2010, also in the same area and at the same time of year. Of the four, the crop glyph at Ipuaçú, above, seems to be a clear representation of the inner solar system — Mars with two moons, Deimos and Phobos, Earth with one moon; Venus, Mercury; and in central focus the sun blasting off another one of its now-common series of M- and X-class flares.

Midwest tornadoes, Eastern seaboard hurricanes, the earth drumming up weather changes

Such flares have increased in regularity in the last month, sparking speculation of their influence on Earth weather anomalies — an early (end October) New York City snowstorm, coming close on the heels of two hurricanes; anomalous tornadoes in the mid-West; summer rain in California instead of forest fires; unusually warm autumn temperatures in Scotland; and the current concern: the freak sub-zero storm expected this week to hit Alaska.

Freak storm bearing down on Alaska

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them… will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” Thomas Jefferson

It is no mere coincidence that the world’s youth have chosen this time to rise up as one voice.

Europeans have a long history of revolution, but suppression by guillotine, inquisition, execution and death by firing squad are assumed (by Europeans) to be a thing of the past. British and Continental representatives are — as an international bloc — quite shocked by the continuing dramatic methods still considered legal means to accomplish suppression in crowds, peace marches and street assembly by US law enforcement agencies. For international travelers, the concept of travel to the United States is no longer a pleasure because of the horrendous lack of respect and brusque treatment of ‘aliens’ experienced at the hands of U.S. air terminal immigration and customs agencies.

But times they are a-changin’ — as the ’sixties song went. Forty years on, the same suppression and domination by an unreasoning Establishment, accustomed to getting its own way, may not be tolerated any more. November is a difficult month to camp out and still feel the spark of belief in one’s cause. David Crosby may be right, that Europe feels America is finally waking up. He and Graham Nash were astounded by group support provided by passers-by, relief agencies, clothing donors and food manufacturers. As ‘baby boomers’ they were particularly drawn by the number of oldies camped out alongside young people a quarter their age. “The Park is just the spark” may indeed be a prescient description of what is to come. Their stance was cheered at all their European venues.

11:11:11 has provided a trigger for many spiritual groups worldwide. There are major ‘alternative’ initiatives in the U.S. and in virtual chatrooms on the Internet, which speak of this special time as a time to renew commitment to ascending together as one (human) species.

One group in particular provides another opportunity to Fire the Grid, which fired a world initiative in 2007. Others feel that perhaps lightworkers with several years’ experience of consciousness-raising, will become more outspoken and help lead others to express their own desire for group evolution of consciousness. As might be expected, there have been multiple and varied channelings and medium-based pronouncements from the Ancestors of Indigenous tribes, Ascended Masters, Archangels and Star Elders.

Fire the Grid

Fire-the-Grid's Divinity Code: embedded memory sent to trigger human DNA into ascension

The following is the message brought by Fire-the-Grid. It is suggested as a gentle way of introducing one’s psyche to communion with All-that-Is, through group meditation and knowing that others are similarly focused; scheduled for 11 minutes past eleven on 11:11:11. (At 11:11GMT on 11:11:11, Britain holds one minute’s silence; time equivalent is 03:11 PST, but 11:11 local in all time zones will work). It should create a world wave.

The Meditation:

Bring to the experience an open heart and a willingness to remember who you are. This music and image are exactly what I saw in the directions when I was told to share it with humanity.

To engage fully with the experience please make yourself comfortable. Remove all the daily stress from your mind and open your heart to truth. Then in knowing that you are entitled, connect to your Divine Source in any manner you believe in, feel grounded and safe. Ensure you are connected to the Highest Light for the highest purpose and that it be the best for all. You must feel safe and comfortable in order to open human consciousness to the truth. Remember who you are for ten minutes and charge your day with the beauty of knowing it.
Fire the Grid 11:11:11

Fire the Grid has been encouraging human consciousness quietly along its ascension path since the first Fire-the-Grid world meditation in 2007. Musicians Bradfield, Anael and empath Shelley Yates have taken their roles seriously in transmitting instructions to those who wish to participate, to drive the 11:11:11 event with a supreme force. It is the plan that at least half the world will participate and feel the benefits of ten/eleven minutes of silence and communion with Spirit. Others may choose to meditate for one full hour.

Shelley Yates says:
“Who are these great Beings of Light? They wish for us to know them as just that, Beings of Light. They are the essence of all life in our universe, the essence of the great prophets, angels and other Beings that have come to earth with messages of hope for a better future. In fact they are the essence of you and me. For within us we are these great Beings of Light. We too are of the same energy as these beautiful Beings and we hold tremendous power, the power to change ourselves and our world. Collectively, we hold the power to manifest what we need and desire to create a world of joy and abundance for us all. We have been learning about this through various forms over the past ten years. Now is the time to unite ourselves to manifest with intention, not just for ourselves but for the collective whole of this planet.”

Humanity is entering a new time which it has not experienced in living memory. Transition has been happening and will continue to happen during the few years ahead. FTG’s great Beings of Light wish to assist with that transition. Not unlike a parent holding the hand of a child while it endeavors something new, these Beings wish to hold Humanity’s hand as we transition into what we have always known in our hearts to be true.

“They wish to hold our hands as we become our greatest selves.”

There will be other opportunities as we move into 2012, but the Eleven Eleven gateway is a gift both for first-time meditators and for old hands. Ten minutes out of your day will do you absolutely no harm.

And it could bring about a miraculous change in our collective spirit which will do us all a great deal of good.

The Wesak Effect: Changing Human Consciousness

May 17, 2011

Mind is the Matrix of all Matter

Wesak is the most important date in the Buddhist calendar — regardless of where it is held in Indian, Chinese, Zen, Tibetan, Indonesian, Nepalese, Mahayana or Western practices.

HH Dalai Lama participates in the Newark Peace Education Summit in New Jersey during Wesak week 2011

Celebrated by one-third of the world’s population during the week of the full moon in May, it marks the birth of the Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama, c. 563BC) and, for some Buddhists, his enlightenment (Nirvana) and his death. In Burma and Thailand, for instance, it is celebrated with special lanterns made of paper and wood; candles are burned continuously and houses are cleaned, decorated and made new with much joyful music and the sound of bells. In Laos it is known as the Feast of the Lanterns. In India, it is Vesak Day, or Buddha Purnima.

Caged birds released on Wesak: spiritual symbolism and vegetarian practice

There is a long tradition of releasing caged birds on Wesak, signifying the freeing of the soul from the body cage on reaching enlightenment — Nirvana. Many (strict) Buddhists are vegetarians, but those who are not, often pay butchers to release animals otherwise scheduled for human consumption. On this auspicious day, others forgo eating meat. Water ceremonies include bathing the Buddha’s shoulders to remind devotees to purify the mind from greed, hatred and ignorance.

Wesak is a festival we might all benefit from sharing — or at least understanding its roots. In contrast with many world religions, Buddhism is unique for its focus on personal spiritual development and striving for deep insight into the true nature of life, through the practice of morality, meditation and awareness of one’s own accessible inner wisdom.

Buddhists believe nothing is permanent: that change is always possible.

Buddha literally means ‘one who is awake’ and has become enlightened. It is a term that denotes a person who has attained the supreme wisdom and compassion that Enlightenment brings.

The Wesak festival is unique in world religions in that it is a present-time cosmological event and not just one that commemorates a past spiritual happening–as do most holy days.

In Buddhist tradition, Wesak is a five-day festival: two days of preparation, both mental and physical; the day of the Wesak full moon itself, (this year, Tuesday 17th May) and two days after for meditation, direction of energy for good, for self-healing, and for planetary vision.

Ideally, one should approach Wesak week with discipline, clearing the mind beforehand, eliminating from our consciousness all negativity — including the influence of negative people — so that our mind and spirit are opened and ready to receive the forces of Light (love).

If someone negative tries to complicate your life, turn and walk away from them” Caroline Myss

In the western version of the tradition, the day of the Wesak full moon is known as the Day of Safeguarding.

On the full moon of May, with the rising of the morning star, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha, the enlightened one

While Siddhartha’s enlightenment happened over 2500 years ago, it is interesting to note that this year (2011) the ‘morning star’, Venus, is not only recapturing brilliance celebrated in that age-old Buddhist proclamation, but also — on May 11th — approached within one-half-degree of fellow morning planet Jupiter, alongside Mercury and Mars in the pre-dawn eastern sky. This Jupiter-Venus-conjunction is the same configuration as that heralded in 6BC as the brilliant ‘Star in the East’ which signaled the birth of Christ.

So Venus and Jupiter, among others, are presently contributing as planetary pointers to this year’s Wesak week. Other celestial phenomena are in store for the rest of 2011 and 2012.

“On the Day of Safeguarding (May 17th) itself, we the human race should try to receive, contain and hold as much of that great spiritual light, (energy, love) as we possibly can within our bodies as a kind of intelligent network of conscious ‘Mind’ for the planet — as her brain, so to speak.” Wesak Souled-Out Spiritual Hierarchy.

In the West, this year’s festival has primary focus on raising planetary awareness: a rising tide of human Unity Consciousness, which has been a consistent feature of this blog and is becoming the focus of much attention in the runup to 2012. The western hub of Wesak ceremonies, festivities and deep religious rededication is Mount Shasta, Siskyou County, California.

Earth's energy grid, portals and Chakras on the electromagnetic network

In the language of Earth-Gaia Medicine, the Earth, as a sentient being, has energy chakras, one on each continent, just as the human body has energy centers. Shasta is believed to hold the energetic focus for Mother Earth’s root or base chakra.

Her other chakra points are:
Island of the Sun, Lake Titicaca: Sacral second Chakra
Uluru, Ayer’s Rock, Australia: Solar plexus third Chakra
Glastonbury, Somerset: Heart fourth Chakra
Great Pyramid, Giza: Throat fifth Chakra
No fixed location for sixth, Third Eye Chakra
Mt. Kailash, Tibet: Crown 7th Chakra and axis mundi, peak of the world axis.

’Sixties Revolution
California is known for its leading-edge ethos begun in the 1960s and ’70s of multi-discipline spiritual thought, an EarthFirst lifestyle and as home to many New Age groups. Hermann Hesse’s ‘Siddhartha‘ was virtually ‘required reading’ during the spiritual revolution of the ’sixties in a State which became a honeypot for spiritual entrepreneurs, gurus and devout followers of a New Age way of life. While that ‘off-the-grid’ lifestyle continues a presence in the State, it has become — like other spiritual practices — subsumed by the great unwieldy machine of human progress, population growth, and the media/internet/communications revolution.

Among a plethora of New Age spiritual frontrunners from that era, however, one guru stands tall above the rest — Ram Dass. As (former) Dr Richard Alpert, b.1931, he was the renowned Harvard professor whose experimental psych lab –alongside Prof. Timothy Leary and his (then) graduate student Dr. Ralph Metzner, founder of the Green Earth Foundation— used mind-altering techniques in the study of the transformation of human consciousness. They co-authored the volume ‘The Psychedelic Experience‘: a Manual based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead and dedicated to Aldous Huxley. In his subsequent conversion and becoming a messenger for ‘American Buddhism’, Ram Dass was seen not only as a genuine seeker, practitioner and proponent of the simple spiritual lifestyle, but his consistency and practice of personal liberation have affected many lives.

My life is my message” Baba Ram Dass, 1992

Author of the seminal spiritual bible of the time, ‘Be Here Now‘, 1971, he practised the art of self-discipline in maintaining one’s own unique balance and wisdom, in allowing self-liberation, and the ‘voice of the Divine’ to come through into daily life.

Ram Dass suffered a cerebral hemorrhage in 1997 which paralyzed his right side. It has taken him over a decade to recover all function, but he is back on the lecture-appearance circuit, his message stronger than ever. Before the stroke, he finally met and was interviewed by contemporary and fellow research/occult scientist, Terence McKenna (video conversation above). While they had taken divergent life paths — McKenna researching the biological immediacy of shamanic experience and altered states of consciousness; Ram Dass eschewing mind experimentation for spiritual ritual and meditative practice — they discovered shared truth and remarkable similarities in their need to question accepted authority and discover ‘one’s own reality’: McKenna’s ‘felt presence of direct experience’. The video series is unprecedented in its honesty and their familiarity with each other, because while they shared a youthful background of the counter-culture, this was their first encounter as seniors in the consciousness field. In that sense, the video interviews (on YouTube) are unique, unrepeated. McKenna died in 2000 of brain cancer.

Terence McKenna, author of 'Food of the Gods,' before he died in 2000

McKenna believed human evolution and particularly language development were triggered by apes eating hallucinogenic plants after their descent from the trees; that either Man must return to Nature before she explodes, or tout de suite launch some rocket ships to the stars. Ram Dass approaches humanity as a concept seen from the transcendental realm of Godhead, as viewed through the Third Dimension. Both men of ideas have lived long enough to be able to dissolve ego in an unprecedented open exchange. But while the duo (in their video conversation) approach the subject from apparently opposite sides, they both bring light to their shared belief in autonomous, intuitive ‘knowing’, as opposed to acceptance of concepts fostered by fear-mongered dogma of state and government attitudes.

They both believe in ‘Mind’, as the engineer of reality, consciousness.

“The Net,” says McKenna, “is an ‘oracle’ fostering an unprecedented dialogue between human beings and the sum total of human knowledge.” He believes that out of computer graphics will emerge a new form of human communication. “We are heading for a world made out of Mind.”

“Go beyond the ‘isms’ and tell me what you really think we’ll find,” says Ram Dass. While he believes in intuitive links, he concedes the need for virtual/real communication.

Dass believes in the transcendental awareness brought about by communion with one’s higher self, the Divine. It hinges on the presently-growing impetus of global consciousness. McKenna had first-hand knowledge of South American Indians who experienced the Collective Unconscious as an immediate, shamanic, reality; not just as an intellectual construct.

As our society weaves itself ever-more deeply into this colossal thinking machine, McKenna believes it may somehow be able to replicate those shaman Indians’ collective knowing. He answers:

“We’re finding a world made out of Mind instead of ‘stuff’. Mind itself is being pulled taut. We are being given that transcendental object at the End of Time”.

“So what is this transcendental object at the End of Time?” asks Dass.

“A material made from hologramatic disk: part bio, part machine, part think tank, part Mind.”

Over one million Buddhists are meditating right now, pooling consciousness. Critical mass requires only one half of one percent of the population to be ‘vibrating’ at a higher frequency for cohesion/enlightenment/ascension to occur.

This Wesak festival might be the very one which decides the fate of the Earth: the one which changes global consciousness and takes it one step farther up the ladder to the stars.
