This may not seem obviously connected to the art of wwriting but I believe it is so...

Post here with your ideas concerning life the universe and everything.

Here's a statement that I enjoyed considering when I was about 12 (most of you guys are young, innit):

"When you leave a room how can you, as an individual, be sure that the room you just left still exists?"

:huh:

Think about it (I don't want replys to this particular question I just want you to post your beliefs)

For some reason this comes to mind:

"If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it
does it make a sound?"

So, I ran a search on it, and this is what I came up with:

treez (http://www.getodd.com/stuf/treefall.html)

Not exactly philosophy, but definitely something that made me think.

For Yuki:

I have been studying Buddhism daily for about a year now. There are sites which give an overview of the philosophy so I can reccomend finding some on google.

The main thing about the buddha is that, although he was a person like you and me, he is not god personified. He was an Indian prince who had everything he could ever want and didn't understand why he was still unhappy.

So he decided to leave his palace and all of his material wealth to become a beggar and find the answer to his problem. He eventually discovered that the truth lay within not without and ended up meditating for 15 years in a forest.

He walked out of the forest as the enlightened Buddha who no longer suffered from the burdens of Samsara (illusion). He was filled with the interdependent sense that all sentiet beings were interrelated and so all were one. And yet, so many still struggled with Samsara throughout their lives. There was nothing else he could do but feel deep compassion at the sufferring of all things and he dedicated the rest of his life to leading others to enlightenment.

The teachings that he gave are the lifeguide for the buddhist and (this is one of my favourite bits) he specifically asks you to test everything he says adding that nothing should be taken at face value and belived because you have been told to believe it.

- That's a very rough sketch of Shakyamuni (the first Buddha) and little of the actual philosophies practised by Buddhists if you (especially Yuki) want a little bit more than pm me with your email address.

Peace

I'm a big fan of Bertrand Russell (among other philosophers), here's a little piece I found of him thts particularly relevant today, with so many people slaving away at jobs they don't enjoy. Bertrand Russell - In Praise of Idleness (http://www.zpub.com/notes/idle.html)


First of all: what is work? Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth's surface relatively to other such matter; second, telling other people to do so. The first kind is unpleasant and ill paid; the second is pleasant and highly paid. The second kind is capable of indefinite extension: there are not only those who give orders, but those who give advice as to what orders should be given. Usually two opposite kinds of advice are given simultaneously by two organized bodies of men; this is called politics. The skill required for this kind of work is not knowledge of the subjects as to which advice is given, but knowledge of the art of persuasive speaking and writing, i.e. of advertising

One of the interesting ideas he touches on here is the average workday being shortened from 8 to 4 hours, this would provide more jobs for everyone, and more time for leisure.

I'll probably make another post here with some other ideas I've found interesting.

I found some rather interesting blogs yesterday on Guerrilla News (http://www.guerrillanews.com).

Jesus was a Stoned Buddha (http://www.guerrillanews.com/jump.php?id=B01468)
Jesus was Buddha (http://www.guerrillanews.com/jump.php?id=B01467)
Jesus was a Buddhist (http://www.guerrillanews.com/jump.php?id=B01465)


The bible doesn’t touch much on Jesus’ teens and twenties. People think that Jesus may have traveled to India and taught and learned during this time.


“Baptism, the Holy Ghost, and the Kingdom of God were three stages of illumination. This idea is contrary to the current Christian doctrine that places Jesus as the intermediary between human beings and perfect knowledge of God.”


I met this one Jesus cat in the plaza in downtown Santa Fe, NM, he kind of put me on to King Solomon and the book of Proverbs. Good shit, if you ask me. I am by no means a devout Christian in the sense that is widely accepted today (I think a lot of these folks aren't Christians at all), I'm not with dogma. I am however, all about doing right, as I understand it, and I believe the teachings of Christ make more sense when equated with those of the Buddha.

" what if you, as a whole was just wiped from existence, no one remebered you. The things that happened directly to you never happened. The people you met, talked to, or even just say hey to. What if those never existed, they were just gone, erased from your memory. Would have they happend anyways without you."

the moon is not split up, there was a news special on tv that watched on this and they said that an agreement was set that no country could claim the moon, so this guy accualy went and purchased it from some organization that didnt technically own the moon (he bought the rights to it) and now he sells it for $20 an acre, im thinking of buying an acre or two, even if its a scam, oh well its only 20 bucks. but movie stars and such have already bought land and stuff, search online for "Moon Realty" or something or "who owns the moon" thats how i found the site,
also i once heard that there are portals all around us that are super small so we cant see them and they are continually opening but for less than a second, and that they lead to other dimensions and such, so i searched online and found an experiment that they "say" proves this theory...you take 2 peices of paper (1 white and 1 black) and cut 4 holes in the white one and then put the black one in the back of it then shine a light onto the 2 peices of paper and it should make 8 shadows, they say its because it enters "another dimension" and the light interfers with it and stuff, not sure if i really beleive it but thought i should add it to here to see if anyone knew/heard about it at all.

If you can buy stars for dedications on the internet, then it makes sense that someone could claim the moon.

Thanks for the info. on Buddhism LongQuan. I often find myself identifying with eastern thought far more than western religious orgnization's. I would probably want to look into it for myself, but I don't think there is a temple anywhere near here, which leaves me to learn on my own. Anyhow, I'd like to think that some sort of spirituality is good.

My philosophy is basically, how the fuck can anyone prove shit exists? And how the fuck can someone prove it doesn't? I respect any form of religion, because they are the fundamental beliefs on which a person builds his life.

the whole physics/philosophy thing is interesting. I guess Einstein and other people who&#39;ve devloped theories of physics are philosophers in there own right (Einstein definitely was a philosopher, I guess we all are though).

I wonder what&#39;d be like to be in a dimension as it was &#39;annhilated into nothingness&#39;, do you suppose such an event would instant, would we know? would it be painful?

I dont think the possibility of this happening nullifies the existance of a God, I mean it wasn&#39;t really allowed to happen people intervened and said hell no&#33;

philosophy can only exist on a basis of proof and evidence. if scientists and theorists dont have those they leave it to religion. philosophy changes constantly. if something is wrong then perhaps a whole theory of life needs changing.

no its not that, its just such a catastrophe that god wouldnt let this happen and if it did then shit you know?


but it wasnt einstien that stated the therory of other dimensions it was some other german who said there is 4 deminsions, matter(us), anti matter, and i forgot the others, and its not 4d or anything like that, he also stated if you travel far enough youll end up right back where you started


i wonder what the anti-matter deminsion would be like...would i be a fat black girl :lol:

^Thanks...

In keeping with the physics theme:

A theory exisists that unifies both quantum physics (very small laws) and large scale (large laws) physics and is hence a theory of everything... The problem is it is only a mathamatical equation at the moment because it deals with the make up of quarks (the particles that make up protons and neutrons which, in turn, make up the atoms of which everything is built.

Here&#39;s the crazy part for the equation to balance there must be 10 different dimensions coexisting at the same time&#33;&#33;&#33;

I think the book it was all from is called "the elegent universe".

I&#39;m glad that opinions are being drawn together throughout this forum community - keep them coming&#33;&#33;

Does anyone have any philosophy regarding writing?

For instance: the beliefs in the potential unknown power of symbols and the unspoken messages they bring to those that perceive them... could a symbol represent something that connects heaven/earth 4thdimesion/5thdimesion etc?

i was thinking about that after you said that. and i also realized. there are answers for such far out questions like that, you know? and like.. the answer is THERE, its just. not THERE you know? like, there is an answer, a DEFINITE answer. its just. we will literally never know it. but there is an answer to those types of questions.
its like. a person dying a mysterious death, and literally everyone has no clue what happened to the person, and how he/she came to die. does that mean that the person just DIED out of no where? no it doesnt. the person still died, there is an answer. and only ONE answer. but no one will even know what it was.

Here&#39;s something I wrote about a year ago:

What is the one thing you never dare ask yourself?

Everything you touch, smell, taste and hear: what is it?

I feel, I sense, I breathe - always got to remember to breathe. If you asked me what the most important thing in life is I wouldn’t be able to tell you. The same way I can’t tell you what you’re feeling.

It is YOUR existence - no one can mould it or shape it for you. You define it for it is your reality.

LISTEN TO IT
MOVE IN HARMONY WITH IT
FOLLOW IT
GUIDE IT

NO DESIRE AS DESIRE

Without, of course, trying to sound too dogmatic and preachy I humbly submit my thoughts to you for they are all I have as a certainty in this form of existence. Day by day I walk through many different presences all of which seem to have an underlying form of sadness. I’ll be the first to regard the existence of all things which we, as people, find fear within - for it is these dark realms of our minds that create the light and hence the spectrum of existence. If I were a Zen master I would show that a state of excess reigns over the world ‘powers’
P- o - l- i - t - i - c - s
I can see them bent down on their proverbial knees begging pointing - ‘please, please. Look at these pretty people with good lives - you MUST be like them... Hold fast to this religion of consumer idolatry.. No don’t look away ?&#33; What are you looking at? COME BACK&#33;&#33;

I am calm I am water

is the glass half full or half empty?
that should be the question, if there is water in there drink it.

but why is that glass there?
who put the glass there?
why would anyone ask such a stupid quesiton?
who cares?


what is love?
is it a feeling?
but a feeling is a chemical reaction such as pain.


and without anyof our sense would we exist
if one cannot see,hear,feel,smell,or touch anything how would he or she
know if anything was there?
they would be nothing and everything around them would be nothing

-what is life for...do you just pass through it then leave? who remembers you?

what is after life(the same old question) do you just be nothing..iamgine being nothing..yuou can&#39;t sleep..or see..or think..it would be...nothing... it would be a bit like being asleep..but no-one ever remembers what it is like being asleep apart from if you have dreams..but you wouldn&#39;t have dreams when you are dead..would you?&#33; Thats why i do graffiti..i want to make my mark, be remembered..still be alive when i am dead..and i think all the better if it looks artistic&#33;

haha, i dont think there are science buffs, i think its just that alot of people here like to think.. really. really... deeply.
haha thats me...when ever i walk home from skating at nighttime...i just think about the most random things ever...i just completely zone out

for example this is one of my thought/theory&#39;s

no matter how clase u are to touching something, u can always go a little bit closer without touching it...bye the way...did u really read this...or is it nothing but a figment of ur imagination

and if u think that we are characters in a video game n some1 is controlling u...u will tell ur self that u wont listen to what the ppl controlling u say...but they are making u do that [/b][/quote]
just a little advice...if you claim to think deeply and want people to take you seriously, i suggest working on spelling and grammer. its rough to have a deep intelligent though interrupted by a few "u&#39;s" and "ur&#39;s".

Religion is like morals. It&#39;s a way to live your life, being good and all that shit for stupid people. It&#39;s like, be good or else your will get punished, instead of Be good, because thats what people are supposed to do.


But of course, humans are fucking stupid and fuck it alll up.

I don&#39;t agree with religion and I don&#39;t believe it is necessary, we should learn to depend on ourselves to interpret signs, and god&#39;s words and such. I have no religion, but I believe in the bible. I believe in the Devil, and I believe in God. At the same time I believe in both, I also believe in Science. A major belief of mine is also to always try and do good, and that if you don&#39;t do good it will always come back to you. I also believe in an afterlife.

K, that&#39;s an overview. I don&#39;t have the need of going in to hardcore detail. But I think it&#39;s important that everyone respects everyone elses beliefs.

Ultraviolet gas emitted by human stressed trees






All trees, except the Ohio Buckeye tree, when in the presence of humans, emit a faint cloud of ultraviolet gasses. These UV gasses are visible when filmed with a special camera and are convincing proof of tree stress when humans are present.

The photos at left show the various amounts of UV gasses being emitted as a human walks nearby. Lumberjacks are familiar with this and know that it suggests that the tree they are working with will yield good useable wood.

Should you be walking in a forest and happen to see this type of gaseous emanation from a nearby tree, you should take cover immediately-- as the tree may fall on you&#33;


So when I am in my grow room am I scaring the hell outta my plants?

jesus, cross, churches, bible = all CRAP&#33;&#33; (in regards to being more realted to the real "god" than anything else)

even religious peopel (a guy who wrote a book i just heard on the radio, came to conclusion that jesus didnt exist becasue of something lie how was just immitation from other religions etc.. (i used to think that there was a guy named jesus with a really attractive religion (ON HUAN MORALS)>>but thats all it is human instinct and we tie god to it

the only thing close to god in any religoin might be praying, but not over exagerating begging asking to solve every problem in your currwnt life.. just to know "its" there.. its all part of everytihn

sometimes its like nobaody stops to think that what if its just us for psycholgical reasons therefore convinvcing eachother that theres a god withg all sorts of benifts... and why do we nwad "god" to exiust...?? ill anser back with a better (at least equal ) counter argument...

im not saying "god" doesnt exist in this post, but addresing how i cant satnd these fucking nerds praying to JESUS worshipping a human in myth (wether he existed or not) taking so seriosly as if h was son of god or whtave

another topic

a question i wannt to ask you gus .. do you think we can have feelings WITHOUT having senses (at least sometime beore) ?? think and tell me, just little piec if puzzel of certain thing im trying to come up with,..

does anybody critisise famous philospheres/ its (there only human) if you know what they say you can have your own view and maybe better arguments against some of the things they say

well. in regards to time. time is a very real concept. its the measure of movement and becomes evident through movement. its also represented through change. so in that sense its a very solid and interpretable idea. but i think the idea that you are saying you dont believe in is the dependancy our modern world has on such. everything is done by time or days instead of when they should naturally be done. date and time can be measured in many different manners so picking just one (especially if its not based on the moon or something) is just bringing people further away from their roots. fuck that shit.

pretty much what i was thinking.
basically time can be calculated but the dependency that everyone has on it is rediculous. i wish i lived in a society where we could just do things when we wanted and when we got around to it, insted of always worying about if we are on time, or if we are running too long.

on a nother note on time.
60 seconds in a minute
60 minutes in a hour
24 hours in a day.

why not 60?







another thing i was wondering bout.
say way back when, people only had first names im assuming. so who was the dude in my family that got to choose my last name? and whats to say that I cant create a new one and from now on all of my desendants will follow that name?

fannypack uprock
10-03-2006, 05:11 PM
on a basic level last names were a lot of the time created using things relevant to the familys hobbies or occupations. ie. smith (blacksmith) shoemaker (obvious) things of that nature.

hey duder, im just playin devils advocate here.

The debate between evolution and creation could go on forever. There are many facts for both sides. I can find you a ton of facts if you want but I suggest Darwin&#39;s black box by Biochemist Michael Behe as a starting point. Don&#39;t believe everything you hear in school.

Really what it comes down to is why are we here?
Assuming we did evolve out of nothing:
Ask yourself this... If humans and our enviroment evolved out of nothing, despite the immense mathematical improbability of it all. Why are you here? What is your purpose to living? Why do you have some 80 odd years to live?

here are some more Articles (http://www.discovery.org/scripts/viewDB/index.php?command=view&id=2640&program=CSC%20-%20Scientific%20Research%20and%20Scholarship%20-%20Science) in support of Intelligent design.

"I remember well the time when the thought of the eye made me cold all over, but I have got over this stage of the complaint, and now small trifling particulars of structure often make me very uncomfortable. The sight of a feather in a peacock&#39;s tail, whenever I gaze at it, makes me sick." —*Charles Darwin, in Francis Darwin (ed.), The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin (1887), p. 296.


"Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed but rather evolved" Crick

I disagree with that because they used "psuedo-science" in order to have power and that&#39;s wrong. Because of darwinism, it led to racism, making others judge everyone.

this is an amazing thread.

i always thought maybe if you went far enough out into space then you would eventually end up back where you started. kinda like in old video games like balloon fight when you would run off the screen to the left and end up at the right side of the screen again.

when im stoned i think about shit like this. like how insignificant human existence seems when you consider the size of the universe. or how its even possible for matter to exist at all. and how there is no explaination for anything that exists around us. how did it get here? where did it come from? is the universe actually located in any specific place corresponding to other universes? what the fuck is a black hole? what the fuck is an atom?&#33; how do atoms exist?&#33;?&#33;?&#33; and why?&#33;?&#33;


i often times scare the shit out of myself when pondering these things.

To beleive we are the only intelligent beings in the universe, is the most self centered and egotistical thing possible. The facts speak for themselves. Coming from a global point of veiw, the world wasnt always split up into continents, and whose to say the bible wasnt just created by some people to control society because they were tired of the theft, killings, and unfaithfulness that plagued their cities. No one on an "Everyday citizen level" honestly knows if theres other life out there, but dismissing it totally is stupid. The bible doesnt make any real remarks about history before that, nothing about cavemen, about dinosaurs, basically it doesnt state anything that would of been "exterior information" or "divine" seeing as how it only talks about events that would of been common knowledge or "plausible" in that time and gives a simple, unrational answer as to how we were made when modern science goes totally against that. And of course the christians or anyone else for that matter would use the "thats the devil talking" excuse against you in a discussion like this, but then you could say "You are one biased bitch" and shut them down like that. Im not saying religions bad, and that there isnt a god, but read up. I didnt go into nearly 5% of the amount of shit Ive read surrounding this topic, but what Im trying to say is, lose your prejudices, because if you keep a barrier up you will never see the truth or even be able to form your own opinion. Personally I beleive in some form of a god, but I really dont know what this "god" would be, or stand for.

Did you read my last post in this thread? Check out that link to all those scientific peer reviewed articles. To classify anyone who does&#39;t believe all the evolution propaganda as "unable to see the truth" is ridiculous. The fact of the matter is that evolution has no real proof that makes it undeniabley true. Likewise with intelligent design. Except chossing to believe the later gives your life purpose as oppossed to living for nothing other than your own personal pleasure.

Check out a recent issue of Time. It has a good debate on the existense of God.

mutations in our "non-coding" DNA is what caused gene mutations in our favor to develop. look up microcephaly. theyve found that one of the major componants that we do have that chimpanzees dont is a section of non-coding DNA that produces double stranded RNA which destroys genes directly related to brain development and function. when theres inscription errors in humans where this dosent happen and that gene is never destroyed, we get something know as microcephaly, which causes your brain to be retarded in development and it only gets as big as a cimpanzee brain. the mutations causing this dsRNA to be produced in humans allowed our brains to get alot bigger than the chimps it it just took off from there. people = mutants&#33;

zealot, its really not that easy to answer wether or not were alone in the univers. the drake equation for life is so complex that it is infact possible that we are alone.

N = R* • fp • ne • fl • fi • fc • L
Where,
N = The number of civilizations in The Milky Way Galaxy whose electromagnetic emissions are detectable.
R* =The rate of formation of stars suitable for the development of intelligent life.
fp = The fraction of those stars with planetary systems.
ne = The number of planets, per solar system, with an environment suitable for life.
fl = The fraction of suitable planets on which life actually appears.
fi = The fraction of life bearing planets on which intelligent life emerges.
fc = The fraction of civilizations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space.
L = The length of time such civilizations release detectable signals into space.

----------------------------
on top of that youd need a planet with water, an active weather system (including lightning storms because electricity and water have been down to stimulate life and cell development)
ive completed my version of this eqaution and the number came to under 1. this means that from the evidience i used to complete it, it is remeakrable that even our planet, exists.

There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything.

There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the moment. A man's whole life is a succession of moment after moment. If one fully understands the present moment, there is nothing left to do, and nothing else to pursue.

when i tripped last week, i watched a scanner darkly, and all i could think about is how humans are the only animals on this earth that are in need of entertainment. i mean, every animal goes about their every day life with a set purpose that they just know from the start. sometimes casual entertainment ensues. but humans have just gone astray from all of that and just live to be entertained.

this theory proved itself more when we went down to this park by my house, and just sat there staring at a pond, talking about how we wish we could be doing something entertaining. when you're not being entertained or doing work that you choose to do, you have absolutely nothing to do.

you don't have a set purpose. our original purpose is to eat, sleep, and fuck, and some people just choose not to do some of those, because we are intelligent animals with minds large enough to make complicated choices, which some use for the better, and some use for the worse.

which has led most of us to shit. we just don't know how to rightly use our intelligence. or is there even a right way?

Anyone ever seen "What the bleep do we know"? It talks about, philosophies with quantum physics and they talk to mystics and stuff. But they address how we create reality. Like when Columbus (AKA Stupid Fuck) was going to Jamaica the natives didnt see his boat. They just saw the waves his boats made because they didnt know a ship like that could exist. So a shaman would go out everyday and just look at the ocean, until one day he finally saw the ship, and told everyone and then they saw it because they trusted him so much.

This is a Rasta Mans story...That which has always been.

This time, the issue shall revolve bringing forth the truth that black is all, everything is everything so black everything is God everything is love this is all a circle to return to the revolution that never stops and though it is constantly fought it can never be beat. In the beginning was Jah. The source of power of life. Even up to this morning all life begins with darkness the essence of Jah is black absorbing all. The root of all.

Many have been murdered for exposing liars and copycats as well as those who spoke the truth; that these truths werent discovered or invented, the theories and ideas are works of ANCIENTCY.
Black power, black holes, black energy, string theory, ether theory, "God Particle", as well as the Zodiac are all the REAL-IZATIONS of Ancient peoples and cultures.
Most people think RACIALLY when subjects of Blackness arises, unless comducted by scientists, most seem absent of a NON PARTIAL mind frame, let us remember black is not a color. BLACK IS ABSORPTION OF ALL COLORS, ABSORPTION OF ALL.

I could credit many scholars and scientist with explanations, I don't care to do so because they are not the originators of black and it's power.

Explore the nature of nature law of earth as it is in ZION

Why am I telling you this? Because you should know why the military, police, judges, funerals, and priests all dress in black. From the top of their pyramid to the soles of their feet, secretly the western worlds knows black is the head corner stone, and they don't want you to know. They want you to fear.

Fixed on the light the Black became secondary, yet Black is the most dominant and permanent force on earth and is the color of the solar system, eventually there would be a return , everywhere black has been it will be again. This is the revolution that like black encompasses all, it now becomes the God revolution, the LOVE revolution!
Black has the same definitions as JAH(God) and love. If black, Jah and love have reason for being with humanity, it must have reason with original man and woman. Now in our Blood....our oringinal positions are called upon, in order to preserve respect, the survival of our garden depends on our mother and father process. OUR PARENTS R GRAND

Jah black love formed the dirt of Ethiopia to create the flesh and bones of our one great grandparent.

Revolution is survival. Though eternal, we have a survival crisis due to the situation of how together we prepair and repair.

I was before light left dark, before wrong left righ, before evil left good.

Behind any revolutional change is the love of progress. Our desire for the future and now is forwrdn collectivly to establish globally a mindset on all is one and one is all. Completion of awareness of the bottom to top. Supporting the first to last.

Long before their was a devil, I never left black, I have and always will be ONE IN ZERO. I AM(ie. balance, highest to lowest, Balance is the message.)

I have a job to do. We have a position to take. Its the same all oer the universe; be at one with it. Perfect Balance.

WE

ORGANIZE
WE

CENTRLIZE


In the first book of the Torah(old testament)titled in Latin, Genesis, in its first word in its original text says RASIT. Rasit is the ancient Indi-Kush term for the Wisdom of the Head that is the source. Next is the statement out of the darkness came water, then earth then light upon it.
Interestingly none deny this order from modern to ancient science. It is more that words of a story...It is the cycle of creation.
In all of life, first the intent in born in darkness which then finds water seperating itself into matter to recognize light.
From the roots of the earth into the womb of mothers, everyseed begins life in the same way and order. Black to where we were, are, and will be.

Woman is the likeness of man. Man is the likeness of Jah. Both Man and woman are the likeness and image of JAH. The we is us as one. In one we still are...That we are...ALWAYS ONE.

A tree without roots falls. This is why black is feared and Africans denied of Birth rite. It to is in Genesis, why the ancient black, Ethiopian is hidden agrees with science and history(lucy) First man and woman are Ethiopian Kushites.

No nation can claim, or has claimed that the black man child and humanity was born from them.
Before DNA, we kew and all FELT the truth, And I doubt any NATION will say they birthed Africa, Remember Africa has always said the whole Earth comes from her blood and of her dirt. Mankind has forgotten what that means...So the circle brings back her people, Kush means BLACK for a reason, as well as HEM, mistranslated to "HAM", that reason is to cite, respect what is the blessing that cant be cursed!!

Modern thoughts are not invented, political, religious, and artistic importance on the sun is central in systems of SORCERY. Influencing the present day, so called "INTELACTUALS" Deny omnipresence basing control in developed dogmas. Post white supremacists and sex worshipers spawned the story of "Lucifer" exposing the desires of knowledge on Earth....That story is the story Osiris and Isis, later adapted into the Latin term "Lucifer", Bearer of Light.

This war between 2 kingdoms and states of mind escalated into a SPIRITUAL WAR that is still being fought. The fight of the source of life.

SUN worship is the most common form of Ancient worship of pagans across the world, linked with the love of GOLD and of SHINY THINGS, sex worship and of the notion of Lighter skin to more Godly.

RASTA SEY MO FIRE!!!


London, Germany, Washington DC and the Vatican in Italy all have the obelisk in front of them highest ruling building. Even on the dollar bill there is evidence of Egyptian SUN WORSHIP. Kingdoms across the world thru time, sacrifice, Raise and worship the sun entrenched with sex innuendo. The name "Bible" can be linked to a sex goddes 'Isous' being the Greek sex nymph is directly linked to the Latin replacement "Jesus". Christ "Crestos" Roman SUN diety was the choice for the last name.

To exalt their sun god, later Constantine, a sun worshiper, changed the Judea-Christian sabbath to sunday. The cross is also an Egyptian sun symbol, and Christians indeed worship the Son. Though put into a image of man, they lightened his skin to white, hair to gold, eyes to blue and put a sun behind His and many other heads to exalt that they are of the sun, just to top it off the church lies and said he was put on a cross, that now millions wear, not known it is a clear symbol of DEATH, INVASION and SUN WORSHIP. The name CHURCH is a PAGAN God "Kirk". Christmas (DEC.25) is an old sun worship holiday, because it is the darkest day of the year. It is also the day where the sun is closest to the Earth. The sun has its divinity, but to place it above the nest that the sun sits is foolish. Through energy mankind brings the sun closer, the burn is the judgement. Burnt men are Solar Men.

Earth, Man and Woman are not in harmony, and life forever is, when we can be who we need to be as ONE. If we cannot see that cities, factories and corporations are separating and disconnecting the fabric of our physical enviroment from ourselves, we will be left dismayed at an angered living planet. Jah works through the Might and Power of Man and Woman as One. Babylon wants bastard youth, so that they can whore the woman and children. This is a sex driven system where boys dont grow into men, and women are made into prostitutes, it is the youth who suffer. This is why sons pay for their fathers sins, the earth feels the weight of its lack of parental order.


Its up to us now,
The pollution has
Engulfed us, Robbing
From future, Rasta Ancient
Love forward FORIVA, Now we rise
From the dumps to take our rightful place

In this time The King of Kings calls all people to hear to the law, the Marriage of the Lion and Lamb is realization of Ivine balance, also the reminder that Ethiopia and Judah is still in it's original is still ready and is guiding the Earth to know and love it's self. The Black Ethiopian is the stone the religion refuses, yet the Black Nations contribution is the Head Capstone.

From theories about lifes continuous spirals and circles to the artistic and mathematic patterns that we use daily, there is a REoccuring theme. The theme is the circle. All ancient people have a similar number system, the ZERO at the beginning as a circle in the Western world is attributed to Arab(Yemeni) scholars, whom were Islamic, though there is massive evidence to support that the ZERO is the foundation concept of mankind. Study of Buddhism will reveal quickly with the knowlege of the ZERO and its meaning that it is the premise of their 'nothing'. That is why they reject the notion of being classed as Atheists.

Many Pagans by definition are not. Once anyone finds that every thing is everything, that Jah is one in all, the moment ONE can identify one is all or a unified force of life, one cannot be Pagan! Worship in sects and seperation are systemic divisions that phsically divide those who love our collective unity with and of ONE are HURTING more than helping.

Undisputed is the revolution of the Earth, Sun, Moon, Seasons, Habits and solutions are ever present. retuning is something greater, the ORIGINAL program of millions of years of genetic Remebraces and the return of the source of THE ORIGINAL PROGRAM.--BLACK--


This is a new day, there is no limit to the greatness of Jah, our past and future. Now is the time to stay in touch with our inna higha vision. A vision where peace and Justice walk hand in hand, where liberation and repatriation sing together!! When the nations of each stretch forth thier fingers, the world will find their Birth rite that we together share.

We must educate ourselves and encourage ourselves to shape and determine our own destiny. To honor patience as a being defendn faith. Earth and the heavens await upon the children of man to live up to our need to preserve and nuture. This is the global healing; setting a side defferences to achieve a great common aspiration. The aspiration to live in harmont by reaching a international moral code that is all ready written in our heart and mind. We are never forsaken without redemption.

the TRUTH of the MUSHROOM and CHRIST'S MASS





Modern Christmas traditions are based on ancient mushroom-using shamans.

Although most people see Christmas as a Christian holiday, most of the symbols and icons we associate with Christmas celebrations are actually derived from the shamanistic traditions of the tribal peoples of pre-Christian Northern Europe.

The sacred mushroom of these people was the red and white amanita muscaria mushroom, also known as "fly agaric." These mushrooms are now commonly seen in books of fairy tales, and are usually associated with magic and fairies. This is because they contain potent hallucinogenic compounds, and were used by ancient peoples for insight and transcendental experiences.

Most of the major elements of the modern Christmas celebration, such as Santa Claus, Christmas trees, magical reindeer and the giving of gifts, are originally based upon the traditions surrounding the harvest and consumption of these most sacred mushrooms.



The world tree

These ancient peoples, including the Lapps of modern-day Finland, and the Koyak tribes of the central Russian steppes, believed in the idea of a World Tree. The World Tree was seen as a kind of cosmic axis, onto which the planes of the universe are fixed. The roots of the World Tree stretch down into the underworld, its trunk is the "middle earth" of everyday existence, and its branches reach upwards into the heavenly realm.

The amanita muscaria mushrooms grow only under certain types of trees, mostly firs and evergreens. The mushroom caps are the fruit of the larger mycelium beneath the soil which exists in a symbiotic relationship with the roots of the tree. To ancient people, these mushrooms were literally "the fruit of the tree."

The North Star was also considered sacred, since all other stars in the sky revolved around its fixed point. They associated this "Pole Star" with the World Tree and the central axis of the universe. The top of the World Tree touched the North Star, and the spirit of the shaman would climb the metaphorical tree, thereby passing into the realm of the gods. This is the true meaning of the star on top of the modern Christmas tree, and also the reason that the super-shaman Santa makes his home at the North Pole.

Ancient peoples were amazed at how these magical mushrooms sprang from the earth without any visible seed. They considered this "virgin birth" to have been the result of the morning dew, which was seen as the semen of the deity. The silver tinsel we drape onto our modern Christmas tree represents this divine fluid.

Reindeer games

The active ingredients of the amanita mushrooms are not metabolized by the body, and so they remain active in the urine. In fact, it is safer to drink the urine of one who has consumed the mushrooms than to eat the mushrooms directly, as many of the toxic compounds are processed and eliminated on the first pass through the body.

It was common practice among ancient people to recycle the potent effects of the mushroom by drinking each other's urine. The amanita's ingredients can remain potent even after six passes through the human body. Some scholars argue that this is the origin of the phrase "to get pissed," as this urine-drinking activity preceded alcohol by thousands of years.

Reindeer were the sacred animals of these semi-nomadic people, as the reindeer provided food, shelter, clothing and other necessities. Reindeer are also fond of eating the amanita mushrooms; they will seek them out, then prance about while under their influence. Often the urine of tripped-out reindeer would be consumed for its psychedelic effects.

This effect goes the other way too, as reindeer also enjoy the urine of a human, especially one who has consumed the mushrooms. In fact, reindeer will seek out human urine to drink, and some tribesmen carry sealskin containers of their own collected piss, which they use to attract stray reindeer back into the herd.

The effects of the amanita mushroom usually include sensations of size distortion and flying. The feeling of flying could account for the legends of flying reindeer, and legends of shamanic journeys included stories of winged reindeer, transporting their riders up to the highest branches of the World Tree.


QUICK FACTS:



THE MUSHROOM IN QUESTION IS RED AND WHITE--SANTA IS RED AND WHITE

THEY GROW UNDER FIR AND EVERGREEN TREES--HENCE THE 'LITTLE GIFTS' WE PUT UNDER THE TREE

THE CHIMMNEY IS LIKE THE FIRE OF DIGESTION 'SANTA' GOES DOWN

WE MAKE OUR HOUSES ALL COLORFUL, BRIGHT, FLASHING LIGHTS, IN SHORT, 'TRIPPY' EVERY YEAR

THE MUSHROOMS WAS CONSIDERED 'BORN OF A VIRGIN' FOR THEY COULD NOT FIND THE SEEDLINGS, FOR MUSHROOM IS BORN OF SPORES.

IF ONE ATE THIS MUSHROOM IS WAS INDEED THEIR 'LAST SUPPER' FOR ONE DID IN FACT 'DIE' AND WAS REBORN, RESURRECTED. THEY WERE FROM HERE ON, NEVER THE SAME AGAIN

THE MUSHROOM LOOKS LIKE 'UNLEAVENED BREAD' OR 'HEAVENLY MANNA' WHEN DRIED

THIS MUSHROOM DOES TURN 'WATER INTO WINE' WHEN STEEPED IN WATER AND DRUNK

THE GURUS OF INDIA AND BEYOD USED TO TAKE THE MUSHROOM AND GIVE THEIR PISS (ENUFF OF MY PISS TALK ALREADY HEH?)--THEN THE STUDENTS WOULD 'TRIP' AND SEE THE GURU AS SO POWERFUL THAT EVEN HIS PISS HAD GODLY POWER--THIS WAS USED OF COURSE FOR BOTH GOOD ENLIGHTENING AND CONTROLING PURPOSES.......

THE SACRED COWS IN HINGU MYTHOLOGY SUDDENLY MAKES SENSE, BEING THAT THE OTHER MUSHROM, PSILOCIBIN GROWS ON THEIR DUNG--DUNG IS STILL SACRED TO THIS DAY, THOUGH MANY HAVE LONG FORGOTTEN WHY....

KRSNA AND SIVA BEING BLUE-BLACK JUST AS THE PSILOCIBIN MUSHROOM....

THOUGHT TO BE THE 'SOMA' OF THE GODS IN THE VEDAS, NO DOUBT....

"Lucifer makes his appearance in the fourteenth chapter of the Old Testament book of Isaiah, at the twelfth verse, and nowhere else: "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"

The first problem is that Lucifer is a Latin name. So how did it find its way into a Hebrew manuscript, written before there was a Roman language? To find the answer, I consulted a scholar at the library of the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. What Hebrew name, I asked, was Satan given in this chapter of Isaiah, which describes the angel who fell to become the ruler of hell?

The answer was a surprise. In the original Hebrew text, the fourteenth chapter of Isaiah is not about a fallen angel, but about a fallen Babylonian king, who during his lifetime had persecuted the children of Israel. It contains no mention of Satan, either by name or reference. The Hebrew scholar could only speculate that some early Christian scribes, writing in the Latin tongue used by the Church, had decided for themselves that they wanted the story to be about a fallen angel, a creature not even mentioned in the original Hebrew text, and to whom they gave the name "Lucifer."

Why Lucifer? In Roman astronomy, Lucifer was the name given to the morning star (the star we now know by another Roman name, Venus). The morning star appears in the heavens just before dawn, heralding the rising sun. The name derives from the Latin term lucem ferre, bringer, or bearer, of light." In the Hebrew text the expression used to describe the Babylonian king before his death is Helal, son of Shahar, which can best be translated as "Day star, son of the Dawn." The name evokes the golden glitter of a proud king's dress and court (much as his personal splendor earned for King Louis XIV of France the appellation, "The Sun King").

The scholars authorized by ... King James I to translate the Bible into current English did not use the original Hebrew texts, but used versions translated ... largely by St. Jerome in the fourth century. Jerome had mistranslated the Hebraic metaphor, "Day star, son of the Dawn," as "Lucifer," and over the centuries a metamorphosis took place. Lucifer the morning star became a disobedient angel, cast out of heaven to rule eternally in hell. Theologians, writers, and poets interwove the myth with the doctrine of the Fall, and in Christian tradition Lucifer is now the same as Satan, the Devil, and --- ironically --- the Prince of Darkness.

So "Lucifer" is nothing more than an ancient Latin name for the morning star, the bringer of light. That can be confusing for Christians who identify Christ himself as the morning star, a term used as a central theme in many Christian sermons.



http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c268/Jaagah/sun.jpg (http://photobucket.com/)

Jesus refers to himself as the morning star in Revelation 22:16: "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star."

And so there are those who do not read beyond the King James version of the Bible, who say 'Lucifer is Satan: so says the Word of God'...."





-----------------------------------------------------------------------

and it is hilarious to Baba how the Christian or the perversions thereof get so angry when one denies an 'evil' satan...why? If their God is 'All" then why get angry, I ask?

the reason is they NEED this illusion to further perpetuate their illusions....they need an adversary, an opposite; it makes it easier to spilt, conquor, divide, stereotype, and the rest. It gives their JE-ZEUS something to do, to stand for...

BAPHOMET

Baphomet is another late correlation to the devil, satan, lucifer by the zealots. Anything that was not approved by the Kings, and the priest, was labeled satanic. I have already shed light on the origin, well one origin of the word "devil" in my poem "forbidden fruit" It is said that DEVIL came from DEVA, and this is a name for the Goddess in india; the christian missionaries labeled them evil, and thus DEVA WORSHIPPERS became DEVIL WORSHIPPERS. Padre Engo, the "last Divine Messenger", states that SATAN comes from and African correlation SUT, meaning "Black" and sheds further light.

http://www.myspace.com/engo777

read his works for more enlightenment upon this subject.

LOOKING Closer at the photo of BAPHOMET, one can see the MARRIAGE of duality; one hand it pointing 'above' whilst the other 'below'; the apparently 'male' deity has the breast of a woman; the twin serpents coming from its groin shows the dualistic nature of creation; also the feminine moon is present; the goat head represetns the 'grotesque' upon a 'beautiful' body; the 5 point star also correlates with the DIVINE feminine archetype.

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c374/bomshiva/buddha.jpg (http://photobucket.com/)


The true Lucifarian is one who is a threat to the establishement, ie. Yahusa, Buddha, Mohammad, Osho, the vodouist and the branches and yes, even the Rastafarian. It is such mystic ones that shed LIGHT upon the LIES of darkness. We are seen as a as "evil" by the Powerholders because by opening the eyes of the masses, the very foundation and comfort of the preachers and politicians are in great jeopardy. So of course, the church says "stay away from Lucifer," for I will lift the Veil, and the Pope's Skirt while I am at it..

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c374/bomshiva/lazaros.jpg (http://photobucket.com/)

LUCIFER IS LEGBA IN MANY SCHOOLS. He, who is actually the MARRIAGE of masculine and feminnine principles, hence adrogenous, brings Us truth through the dualistic nature of human exitence. He constantly shows how the "good" is hidden within the "bad" and vice versa throughout our lives...constantly giving us a chance to dispell ignorance and overcome the duality of SACRED AND PROFANE...He shows Us freedom by doing whatever he wishes, even if it seems perverted, queer, evil, malicious, and the rest. This is not to say that we shall do these things, but to see and witness the fact that "good" and 'bad" is relative and dependent upon the eye of the beholder. To truly know the concept of legba and his caminos is to know the freedom of SELF...

So let the truth be known.

human apes accidentally discovered the joys and wonders of taking hallucinogenic drugs, and thats what lead to eventual development of us -- homo sapiens. According to this bold theory, we have stoned apes to thank for the development of modern man, the human ego, and our current, highly developed self-reflective consciousness.This is the theory of the late ethnobiologist Terence McKenna, who makes an extremely compelling case for his stoned-ape theory is his marvelously well-written book, Food of the Gods.McKenna contends that somewhere in the distant mists of the past, certain hominids stumbled upon mushrooms containing the powerful psychoactive drug, psilocybin. Assuming the mushroom were merely a tasty food, the hominids discovered that they were much more -- when they ingested them, their minds expanded, evolved and innovated, and most important of all, became self-reflective. In other words, for the first time, and animal could recognize itself as a unique individual within the vast pantheon of nature.

ANCIENT MESOPETAMIAN ARTIFACTS DEPTICTING MUSHROOMS AS GOD LIKE ENTITIES...
They discovered that higher mental concepts were possible. McKenna writes:The evolutionary breakouts that led to the appearance of language and, later, writing are examples of fundamental, almost ontological, transformations of the hominid line. Besides providing us with the ability to code data outside the confines of DNA, cognitive activities allow us to transmit information across space and time.McKenna notes that significant evolutionary development in most species needs a minimum of a million years, and more often, tens of millions of years. Yet, the emergence of modern human from primate ancestors, happened in fewer than three million years. That included an astoundingly rapid increase in brain size, and also sophisticated social and cultural behaviors.Natural psychoactive chemicals may not only have expanded the minds of proto-humans, but also triggered key mutations that caused sudden and rabid increase in brain size. Additionally, psychotropic mushrooms induce key behaviors in those who eat them -- increased visual acuity, a higher sex drive, stronger physical stamina, and most importantly, access to higher levels of thought. All of these factors would have helped them outcompete, outbreed and springboard ahead of other primate species.

ADAM AND THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT; THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE


Its interesting to note that the kind of mushroom with the most psilocybin, stropharia cubensis, grows best in cattle dung. That means that as humans grew smarter, they eventually were able to domesticate cattle, which in turn provided more manure, which was excellent for growing more mushrooms.McKenna suggested there was a symbiotic relationship between human beings and mushrooms. The mushrooms provided humans with transcendent consciousness, and in return, humans learned to cultivate them, and part of that process was the successful domestication of livestock -- which provided even more food and stability for human beings.McKenna goes even further, and boldly (or perhaps wildly) suggests that there is much more to hallucinogenic mushrooms than meets the eye. He posits that psychoactive chemicals in mushrooms may be nothing less than a kind of plant consciousness and that by ingesting such plants, human ancestors tapped into it and joined with that plant consciousness. McKenna also suggests that this was our planets method of developing or uplifting the planet as a whole into one mass being of higher consciousness -- Gaia.Food of the Gods is a book that goes far beyond McKenna theory of drug-assisted evolution -- he also explores with sharp insight mankinds long relationship with drugs of all kinds, from mushrooms and cannabis, to our moderns obsession with hard drugs like alcohol, cocaine -- and soft drugs, like caffeine, nicotine and even refined white sugar.Whatever you think of McKennas ideas -- which are controversial to say the least -- I strongly recommend his book to anyone with an open mind and who enjoys extremely creative suggestions that pertain to human evolution.

always found this one scary. we live on a world, but we are surround by nothin, which is space. space gose on and on but if it goes on and on what does it go on and on to? it has to go somewhere. people say space is expanding but to where. and if space is nothin, then why do we extist living in a world.

Existance itself is strange to me. But im not scared of the unknown. We find out what lifes about when we die. God or not

I wonder how many mushrooms you would have to eat for your brain to mutate and increase in size?

The team looked at multiple factors, including how old the fossils were, where they were found, what the temperature was and how much the temperature varied at the time theHomo species lived, and the level of parasites in the area. They also looked at the population density of the region in order to measure social competition, "assuming that the more fossils you find in a particular area at a particular time, the more likely the population was larger," Geary said.

They then used a statistical analysis to test all of the variables at once to see how well they predicted brain size. "By far the best predictor was population density," Geary said. "And in fact, it seemed that there was very little change in brain size across our sample of fossil skulls until we hit a certain population size. Once that population density was hit, there was a very quick increase in brain size," he said.

The worst part, in my opinion of being heavily into and following transcendentalism and existentialism, is the existential crises I face almost every night. It hasn't happened since I talked about it with some peers, but shit man... those were terrible.

I lean towards ancient astronaut theory, I believe aliens either created us and put us here, or come here thousands of years ago and helped us progress forward as a civilisation by giving us greater knowledge, please watch the ancient aliens documentary series on youtube, its fucking amazing :) MENT2

"Space" is far from nothing. 1 cubic cm of it has a density so high that it contains 30 something times the mass of the material universe http://www.bombingscience.com/graffitiforum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif (it's actually infinitely dense but physicists can't deal with that so they renormalise the nasty infinity to be a finite number to stop their heads exploding). We ourselves are mostly (and I really mean mostly) "space", as is our planet, sun, galaxy etc etc. The 'matter' in the universe is something like 0.000001% of the total . The rest is made up of "space", the vacuum, the void or whatever we call it. Everything is born of that 'infinitely' dense vacuum and is constantly interacting with it in a feedback loop. The multiverse is a fractal as in infinitely big and infinitely small, no beginning or end. Our universe is but 1 resolution of that fractal. This leads to the realization that nothing is actually moving at all. The universe isn't expanding anywhere it just seems like it is. All part of the illusion

bahahaha
remember t.v is all suggestive notice how they never say this is FACT because they know its not true they are cutting us off from out roots OUR BLOODLINE ancient civilizations where GENIUSES they dont want us to know that, they want us to still believe that they were savages and where uncivilized until colonialism started.

t.v is 99.9% BULLLSHIIIIT.
my homie thinks he get knowledge off the history channel too but i always gotta check him.

what cause rain hail snow and earthquakes

ribcage
09-11-2011, 05:46 PM
rain-percipatation
hail-large pieces of frozen percipatation
snow-small peieces of frozen percipatation
earthquakes- tectonic plates underneath the earth's crust that grind against eachother

nothing moves? ...........:rolleyes:

Tony
09-11-2011, 05:53 PM
oh no, dude.. like.. what causes them... like why do they happen in the first place you know? everybody knows an earthquake is 2 plates moving
but like... what is the reason shit happens.. you know?



because like... there has to be a reason for everything... like rain can't just FALL... something had to push it....

no man... the government.... they have these like, super loud machines that can cause earthquakes.... and rain is tears man... tears from the annunaki because they couldnt wipe us out man... theyre sad cuz weve turned into hideous beings

not pushd it pulled it water vapor rises because its less dense then air then collects when it gains density gravity pulld it back down

my theory on space is how we look at multicell colonies under a microscope a mass in a drop of water its our universe just a drop in water of something FAR larger
