War, Bluestones, Soul, Sanity

 

 

 

 

THOSE, and I am one of them, who find even a small ordinary sized mole disgusting, would probably have died of disgust if they had seen the giant mole that a few years back was observed in the neighborhood of one of our villages, which achieved a certain transitory celebrity on account of the incident. Today it has long since sunk back into oblivion again, and in that only shares the obscurity of the whole incident, which has remained quite inexplicable, but which people, it must be confessed, have also taken no great pains to explain; and as a result of an incomprehensible apathy in those very circles that should have concerned themselves with it, and who in fact have shown enthusiastic interest in far more trifling matters, the affair has been forgotten without ever being adequately investigated. In any case, the fact that the village could not be reached by the railroad was no excuse.

Many people came from great distances out of pure curiosity, there were even foreigners among them; it was only those who should have shown something more than curiosity that refrained from coming. In fact, if a few quite simple people, people whose daily work gave them hardly a moment of leisure if these people had not quite disinterestedly taken up the affair, the rumor of this natural phenomenon would probably have never spread beyond the locality. Indeed, rumor itself, which usually cannot be held within bounds, was actually sluggish in this case; if it had not literally been given a shove it would not have spread.

But even that was no valid reason for refusing to inquire into the affair; on the contrary this second phenomenon should have been investigated as well. Instead the old village schoolmaster was left to write the sole account in black and white of the incident, and though he was an excellent man in his own profession, neither his abilities nor his equipment made it possible for him to produce an exhaustive description that could   be used as a foundation by others, far less, therefore, an actual explanation of the occurrence. His little pamphlet was printed, and a good many copies were sold to visitors to the village about that time; it also received some public recognition, but the teacher was wise enough to perceive that his fragmentary labors, in which no one supported him, were basically without value. If in spite of that he did not relax in them, and made the question his lifework, though it naturally became more hopeless from year to year, that only shows on the one hand how powerful an effect the appearance of the giant mole was capable of producing, and on the other how much laborious effort and fidelity to his convictions may be found in an old and obscure village schoolmaster.

But that he suffered deeply from the cold attitude of the recognized authorities is proved by a brief brochure with which he followed up his pamphlet several years later, by which time hardly anyone could remember what it was all about. In this brochure he complained of the lack of understanding that he had encountered in people where it was least to be expected; complaints that carried conviction less by the skill with which they were expressed than by their honesty. Of such people he said very appositely: “It is not 1, but they, who talk like old village schoolmasters.”

And among other things he adduced the pronouncement of a scholar to whom he had gone expressly about his affair. The name of the scholar was not mentioned, but from various circumstances we could guess who it was. After the teacher had managed with great difficulty to secure admittance, he perceived at once from the very way in which he was greeted that the savant had already acquired a rooted prejudice against the matter.

The absent-mindedness with which he listened to the long report which the teacher, pamphlet in hand, delivered to him, can be gauged from a remark that he let fall after a pause for ostensible reflection: “The soil in your neighborhood is particularly black and rich. Consequently it provides the moles with particularly rich nourishment, and so they grow to an unusual size.”

Respected research math is dominated by men of a certain attitude. Even allowing for individual variation, there is still a tendency towards an oppressive atmosphere, which is carefully maintained and even championed by those who find it conducive to success. As any good grad student would do, I tried to fit in, mathematically. I absorbed the atmosphere and took attitudes to heart.

I was miserable, and on the verge of failure. The problem was not individuals, but a system of self-preservation that, from the outside, feels like a long string of betrayals, some big, some small, perpetrated by your only support system.

When I physically removed myself from the situation, I did not know where I was or what to do.

First thought: FREEDOM!!!! Second thought: but what about the others like me, who don’t do math the “right way” but could still greatly contribute to the community?

I combined those two thoughts and started from zero on my thesis. What resulted was a thesis written for those who do not feel that they are encouraged to be themselves.

So if you have been glancing at the comments or reading other news sites, you will be aware that there is some sort of major war going on, missiles, bombs, terror, planes being blown up, and that there is a farcical jamboree concerning a climate crisis, in Paris, and all sorts of horror, hysteria and calamity, every hour of the day and night…

tumblr_nydqsdREUS1r65d8uo1_1280

But here, where I happen to live, nestled securely in the deep Preseli Mountains, invigorated by the refreshing 80 mph breeze which arrives accompanied by three or four inches of rain every few days, such distant worldly trifles make only a minor impression, because the real wars, the wars that matter, are big ancient disputes, rooted in culture and heritage, the legacy of the fabric of this land.

tumblr_ndhq21g5AW1rtynt1o1_1280

I speak of course, of The Stone Wars !

 

You have not heard ?

 

Well. Let me give you a quick rough synopsis.

191257_original

The ancients, long ago, planted Stonehenge – yes ? You have heard of Stonehenge ? Like Elvis, President Kennedy, the Che Guevara T shirt, everyone knows, ‘iconic’ is the word – upon the land, that part that is now called Wiltshire.

11801111804056030_mid

That’s in England. But the stones – SOME of the stones – seem not to be from Wiltshire.

landscape

It’s on Salisbury Plain, and on Salisbury Plain, in that area, there were plenty of large stones called sarsens. And they are the ones that you see when you see Stonehenge.

Grant Wood new-road-1939)

But, there are also smaller stones, in the middle ground, called the bluestones, made of a different substance, a different rock type, from the sarsens.

1633589

This has been known since about the 1920s and the nearest place where there was a known source for these bluestones – spotted dolerite – was the Preseli Mountains.

Simon Garden _paintings_artodyssey

So this matter has posed a puzzle ever since. The Preseli Mountains are 150 – 200 miles away from the Stonehenge site. How did the bluestones move that distance ?

troubadour.jpg!HalfHD

It’s a wonderful detective story, because in the ancient annals – forgive me, it’s many years since I read this stuff, I don’t have time to got and research the details again – it’s said that the wizard fetched the stones from Ireland, and they flew. Well, they’d have flown over the Preselis. Or they could have been carried by the glaciers. Which covered Ireland and the Preselis, and ended somewhere around Wiltshire. Maybe. Dropping off the stones as they melted.

tumblr_nva0nvAJKu1rtynt1o1_1280

Or the humans carried them. Overland, a few thousand years BC. Or floated them on rafts down the streams to the rivers and then around the coast, up the Severn Estuary, and the Avon (which is Welsh, Afon, meaning river).

2218314_900

So, that what the fighting is all about. Every year, for generations, one theory or the other, gets favoured. Then disproved. Then proven again. People become bitter, snarky, mean spirited, broken and dismayed, as their favourite hypothesis loses credibility.

tumblr_mftaa3m7aE1qhao9bo1_1280

Look, I’m not ‘an expert’. I’m not ‘an academic’. Do I have a dog in this fight ? A horse in this race ? An iron on this fire ? Well, I better choose my words with some care here. I have to live here, don’t I. I don’t want to get myself lynched or wicker-manned, do I. 

tumblr_ndm1ozJ0pZ1tys217o1_500

I’ve mentioned before, the castle.

It’s been there for a thousand years. It’s only a couple of miles away. It’s got a dungeon. It’s older than the word. Donjon. A subterraneous place of close confinement.’

tumblr_npo5w94hxG1qbmhkxo1_1280

I do not want to upset my good neighbours 🙂

 

For it so happens, one such is a protagonist, in this Great War of the Stones.

tumblr_nephmyy3pz1qelvl4o1_1280

It’s 25 years since I last read up on this stuff. As I recall, at that time, some ingenious student had got their degree by collecting zillions of pebbles, at random, from the beds of streams on Salisbury Plain. They then analysed the mineral types.

tumblr_ncsxloLPiE1rtynt1o2_540

So, what one would expect, would be a predominance of stones from the local geology, the bedrock, plus an additional sampling of all sorts, that had been dumped as glacial erratic deposits, collected from whatever landscapes the great ice sheets had scraped over.

13250568_original

And, if I recall correctly, no spotted dolerite, diorite, rhyolite, or anything like, was found. These all being very hard igneous rock, of volcanic origin, left here in the Preseli area, when it was a series of volcanoes, I forget, 300 million years ago ?

I think they are called the Fishguard Cluster, or something. I have researched this before, but obviously my old brain damage is playing up this afternoon…. need some therapy or coffee or something…

tumblr_nlyc1atciz1qb8vpuo1_1280

Anyway. I found that convincing. At the time. However, the local man here, is obviously a gentleman of the highest merit, and fully qualified, geomorphologically speaking, and he insists. So, who am I to tell him he is wrong ? A nobody at all, that’s who.

1_011

But there are others. And they do tell him he is wrong. And they dig the ground and write papers in learned journals. And mention Stonehenge. Over and over again. Thus they achieve many headlines, much fame and publicity, and, no doubt, enormous quantities of money….

3747126970_f47cae54c8

Can I say that ? That’s probably libellous. But I’m thinking of the local dungeon. They have their dungeons, but theirs are very faraway….

 

Anyway, it’s not my fight, is it ? Why should I care ?

ngbbs479ff8a0dac48

Here you are. Plunge into the midst of the battleground, draw your own conclusions.

OK — on the basis of the Abstract, we get the story!  However, here is a critical assessment for those who cannot get at the article itself:

In the Introduction — about the geology — there is a reasonable summary of published research, mercifully free of any speculation and dodgy assumptions.  

There is mention of the 4 main groups of bluestones at Stonehenge.  Reference is made to the Ixer/Bevins research linking the N edge of the spur with the rhyolite debitage at Stonehenge.  Then there is a suggestion that stone 32d has come from a recess at Rhosyfelin — partly because the dimensions 0.40m x 0.45m “correspond closely” with the famous recess at Rhosyfelin!!  

Location 4 in Figure 2 is referred to as “the recess”, and location 11, next to it, is the “close match”. (I thought the original sample was taken from round the corner, at the old locality 8?)  From previous examination of the geological papers, I do not think it has ever been demonstrated that the match is as precise as this paper assumes, and the possibility remains that the rhyolite debris at Stonehenge has not come from here at all.

When the geology section is out of the way, the problems start.  After the petrography bit, on page 1335, there should have been a stratigraphy section — but there is nothing.  The diggers have obviously plotted the stratigraphy fairly carefully (it’s shown very colourfully in Fig 5 and Fig 8, but without any key), but at no stage do they describe the sequence of deposits.  Maybe they didn’t think we’d be interested.  So we have no way of assessing the reliability of what follows.  

The authors plunge straight into a description of the “archaeological deposits” without for a moment trying to assess what physical processes might have operated here —  the “glacial till” and the “colluvium” are referred to but not properly described.  There is no mention anywhere of the extensive rockfall accumulations which mask the lower part of the rock face, and no mention of the stratified slope deposits that were so prominent on the flanks of the dig site, when it was all open for viewing.  There is no mention of the fluvioglacial materials widely exposed in the dig site.  Without any presentation of sedimentary or other evidence, or discussion of what it means, the authors simply assume on page 1336 that this is all about prehistoric quarrying.  

Quote:  “Colluvium has buried and protected the remains of prehistoric quarrying from subsequent stone removal and disturbance in the medieval and modern era. The archaeological sequence lies on a bed of glacial till within a small tributary valley on the west side of the outcrop.”   So presumably all of the scree and rockfall debris is assumed to be “the remains of prehistoric quarrying.”  That illustrates to some degree the vast gulf in perceptions between archaeologists and geomorphologists.

[[  In academic publishing the protocol is always as follows:  introduction >> presentation of field evidence >> analysis and interpretation of the evidence >> discussion >> conclusions and suggestions for future research. In this paper, this protocol has been completely ignored, and the whole paper seems to be an extended exercise in the confirmation of a ruling hypothesis.  

I find it extraordinary that all of the authors must have signed up for this strategy, and even more extraordinary that the paper in its present form made its way through a refereeing process, and past an experienced editor, and actually made it into print…………..  I hope there are some people within the archaeological academic establishment who are as concerned about this as I am.  ]]

As readers may have noticed, among my many faults and failings, I am an opinionated gentleman. And, as you might expect, I have an opinion regarding the Bluestones.

A5A1NucNVl4

Those people knew more about stones than anyone, before or since. It was the Stone Age, after all. They made sublime tools out of stones. They must have spent generations walking around the entire length and breadth of the British Isles, inspecting every rock and stone.

tumblr_mlevvuqy401sovta8o1_1280

Obviously, I can’t speak for them, can I, there has to be a limit to my opinionatedness.

But if I was them, why would I want to move some big heavy boulders for hundreds of miles ? You know, you’d think, they must have had a reason, assuming they were reasonable people, and not just being perverse and wanting to confuse latecomers and archaeologists.

And, it seems to me, there is a very good reason. Because, of all the very many kinds of stones littering the British landscape, which has astonishing geological variety, the spotted dolerite, if not the most beautiful, must be amongst the most beautiful.

tumblr_nged2fJsNb1rtynt1o2_540

But you only become aware of that when you polish it, and see that it is a blue background, with white blobs, something akin to the starry night sky perhaps.

And they were very good at polishing stones. I have no idea how. Perhaps Mr John knows.

tumblr_mn50kfSZj01qhgogbo1_1280

Anyway, if you were going to set up a very fine monument, at the centre of the country, to celebrate everything worth celebrating, then, ideally, you’d want to select the very finest and most exquisite stones. So, I suggest, that is what they did.

tumblr_nnqxvtCoK71qzix81o1_1280

How they moved them, is a secondary question, whether on the backs of dragons, or in nets carried by flocks of great birds, or even angels, heaven only knows… it remains an open question, and fine minds are constantly at work, determined to provide all who are interested, and even those who care not a jot, with the answers. That’s for sure. So, relax. It’s all in good hands. Patience will be rewarded, no doubt about it.

tumblr_noaxt9ydip1rtynt1o1_1280

You can see why this is all far more engaging and important than imminent World War Three.

But enough of all that for now, back to froth and trivia.

tumblr_metsn4xGgn1ra6csio1_1280

In passing, I noticed that the industrious shape-shifting Vinay Gupta, always a source of stimulating ideas, has begun writing something, and has selected this quotation :

“The soul, if it can be said to exist at all, is certainly without attributes” – Shivanath

Well, according to David Hume, things, to the extent that they are discernible as such, are defined by their properties, their attributes.

So, a foot is a foot, because it has skin, toes, a heel, attaches to an ankle, and so on. If you remove all the attributes, Hume surmises, then there is no essence that remains.

A thing is nothing other than the properties, the attributes, the qualities, that attach to it and define it as such.

tumblr_nbk5d6pyHR1qczwklo1_500

So then, this statement concerning the soul is something like a zen riddle.

A great many buddhists and hindus believe in reincarnation. So what is it that gets transmitted from one life to the next, if not the soul, or something of the sort, with attributes, that make the reborn identifiable, as, say, the candidate for Dalai Lama ?

tumblr_nkwtex5qAS1rlobeho1_1280

How would you know of the existence of a thing that lacked all attributes ?

Wherever you sought it, it would remain unknowable, invisible and beyond any means of discovery. Such things could, hypothetically, be abundant, they could be everywhere, all around us, but devoid of any shape, or colour, mass, weight, substance, value of any kind, we would never detect them.

tumblr_nopnb7wZEZ1rtynt1o1_1280

Of course, the statement if not nonsense, or an absurd proposition, is at least highly dubious.

44815_600

We have from those very same Guptas, of high renown, from Indian classical studies, the invention, or the discovery – who can say which – of the ZERO.

Nil, Null, nought, sefira, cipher.

That is to say NO-THING. Not-a-thing. The concept of the absence of all attributes.

Represented symbolically by an empty circle.

So this is not the thing (that is no thing) itself, not the actual, the reality, is it. It’s a symbolic re-present-ation, in the same way that a sound, a syllable of vocal language, can be represented visually, as an alphabetical letter, or group, as a word.

tumblr_ncbaxa2Foy1tl3gwco1_500

But once we have performed that trick, and have isolated the idea, the concept, as an abstraction, then we have the 0 and we can play around with it, and when you have 0 and 1, then you can have binary counting, and with a semiconductor switch, you can have computers, and the internet, and all this stuff, digital cameras, videos, music, etc.

And everyone assumes this is all understood.

2047855_original

But not really. What we have, are many people who make declarations, assertions, as if they knew, and as if what they said was the truth. But it is extremely hard to prove or to demonstrate, with any precision, what the relationship is, how it works. Making plausible claims that sound convincing, is not quite the same, is it.

The precise relationship between ‘the real’ and ‘the abstract’ is not at all clear or easy to comprehend. Great minds have wrestled with this, Wittgenstein, etc.

IMG0061Ajp_4584751_19783304

We have ‘a world’, which we perceive, and we have an abstract symbolic system, some also call ‘the world’, which blossoms into overwhelming complexity, so much so, that we can exist within that artifice which is our own mental creation, cathedrals of the mind which blot out the natural world entirely.

tumblr_nq4qdew8Ht1t3cxt2o1_540

But back to ‘the soul’.

Presumably, that quotation of Vinay’s comes from the Hindu tradition, in one of its numerous ramifications, where the vedic, tantric, buddhist schools and sects have been quarrelling and arguing about the theological intricacies for the last few thousand years, and I’m not going to get sucked into all of that just now, but it can’t be right, because they have the Atman, as their notion of ‘soul’… but that is a large mistake, because the etymology of the English word comes from a completely different root, and is not in any sense an equivalent term to Atman.

tumblr_ntx8f3ZZGC1rtynt1o1_1280

And they have Kundalini, which, imo, IS the soul, in the sense that it is the Subtle Body, and then, it most certainly does have attributes.

And, if one wished, one could dig further. The people who say that there is no such thing as a soul, are the Western, atheist, physicalist, materialists, following on in the Cartesian tradition of scientism, which is a nonsensical paradigm. Because of quantum physics.

tumblr_ntx7soyDvE1rtynt1o1_1280

I mean, the fundamental claim that it has, that only that which is material, which can be measured, exists, might have had some sense two hundred years ago, when there were early scientists trying to grope a way forward and make distinctions between reason and superstition. But that was then.

We now know that there are no ‘billiard ball’ atoms, it’s all ‘probabilities’, and that when you  try to measure the damn stuff, it ‘knows’ you are looking at it, and that changes the way it behaves.

So that whole Cartesian, Newtonian, mechanistic view has collapsed. It’s not ‘material stuff’ at all. It’s ‘something else’. Only what ?

tumblr_nt66hvBjCE1r5ht24o1_1280

Energy fields ? Vibrating frequencies of organised clumps of information ?

The ancient Egyptians had a very sophisticated conception of what gets translated by the English word ‘soul’. But as I said, that English word has a very different origin.

tumblr_m27o3eBLOH1qeuc7do1_1280

KUNDALINI – (Sanskrit kund, “to burn”; kunda, “to coil or to spiral”) a concentrated field of intelligent, cosmic invisible energy absolutely vital to life; beginning in the base of the spine when a man or woman begins to evolve as wisdom is earned. Kundalini has been described as liquid fire and liquid light. The ultimate outcome of kundalini is the union of Will (sakti- kundalini), Knowledge{prana-kundalini) and Action (para- kundalini)

I have worked out a preliminary protocol to support the fire of kundalini without getting fried and to prevent the years of depression-like fallout that often happens after an awakening. As the science of kundalini progresses such a protocol for adaptation or higher homeostasis will be refined and expanded. Till then, please be aware dear reader that this is an experimental book, the research that will give us the definitive answers to this mystery has yet to be done. In the past we have had no scientific understanding as to what was actually happening to us during kundalini. Now in with modern science we can begin to understand what is really going on.

The Biology of Kundalini is a revolutionary book, long overdue. It will change the way we look at spiritual evolution, medicine and ourselves. With this book I offer a theory of the biology of kundalini, which explains all the symptoms, suggests a protocol of adaptation, and encourages research into a new branch of medicine…Evolutionary Medicine. It is part Self-help book and part notes for scientists and medical minds with an interest in consciousness. It also honors the often difficult process of spiritual crisis in a way that hopefully will reduce the suffering for those undergoing the cruxification, and for those around them watching. This information will be invaluable for anyone going through an awakening, for their family and therapists both medical and psychological.

I recommend you pass over areas you find dry on the first couple of readings. If the subject of metamorphosis in anyway inspires you then eventually even the dry areas will become juicey. The Exhaustion Phase is the seed of BOK which you can use along with the skills and protocol to construct an adaptation or recovery program that is personally suited to you and your symptoms. Writing this book has been the most incredible ride…the information arises on a wave of energy and bliss. When I am hot on the kundalini trail Spiritual Presence is heightened, the muse is tangibly potent and the pieces of the puzzle formulate themselves around the “pull” of the Holy Spirit.

It is very important to grasp the distinction between “damage” (pathology and disease) and the transformative process of “metamorphosis.” Certain phases of metamorphosis include cellular necrosis and catabolic breakdown, for the new cannot grow without the removal of the old. Kundalini with its amplified metabolism and nerve activity, and increased oxidation will tend to down-regulate neural and hormonal receptors and rewire the nervous system. However even if we are in the between-slump, when the hyper-functioning has backed off, but our receptors have not yet regrown, we cannot really consider kundalini as being “brain damaging.” We must see all phases of metamorphosis as necessary allostatic changes in the transformation of our organism and the human collective. Once we understand this and intelligently adapt, we can avoid burnout and regression, and thereby learn to keep the gains made through heightened kundalini.

I don’t recommend that anyone should pursue the raising of kundalini energy…I recommend detoxification, supernutrition, strengthening, plus self-discovered spiritual practices and adventures. I recommend following your Muse and working on giving your greatest gift for the widest distribution. If you do these things then an awakening is likely to occur. If you don’t do these things then you will not be prepared for a kundalini awakening and so it probably is not going to serve you. So I don’t tell people directly how to raise their kundalini, but encrypted throughout BOK are ways that you can use to raise kundalini. However if you cannot find them, then you are not really for an awakening.

Disclaimer:

If you are not a solutions orientated, original thinker then BOK is probably not for you. If you have an infatuation with external authorities, orthodoxy, and traditions, or find that you tend to fixate on problems, then avoid this book. Also please be aware that I am not a spiritual teacher or a medical doctor and the only authority I have comes from my own experience and research. Nothing contained in this book should be construed nor is intended to be used for medical diagnosis or treatment. You should never disregard medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read in BOK.

Here is another version of the same sort of thing

 

What is Polarity Therapy?

Energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature. Polarity Therapy asserts that the flow and balance of energy in the human body is the foundation of good health.

In the Polarity model, health is experienced when:

  • Energy systems function in their natural state, and
  • Energy flows smoothly without significant blockage or fixation.

When energy is unbalanced, blocked or fixed due to stress or other factors, pain and disease arise.

Blockages generally manifest in sequence from the subtle to the dense levels of the field. Polarity Therapy seeks to find the blockages and release energy to normal flow patterns, and to maintain the Energy Field in an open, flexible condition.

A blend of modern science and complementary medicine, Polarity Therapy is a comprehensive health system involving energy-based bodywork, diet, exercise and self-awareness. Scientifically, it works with the Human Energy Field, electromagnetic patterns expressed in mental, emotional and physical experience. In Polarity Therapy, health is viewed as a reflection of the condition of the energy field, and therapeutic methods are designed to balance the field for health benefit. There are 3 types of energy fields in the human body: Long line currents that run north to south on the body; Transverse currents that run east-west in the body; and spiral currents that start at the navel and expand outward.

In the healing arts, Polarity Therapy is special in its comprehensive exploration of the different dimensions of the human condition (physical, mental and emotional). Polarity Therapy seeks to bridge the full spectrum of body, mind and spirit: the body is designed by nature to heal itself. Polarity Therapy assists in this natural occurrence). Applying the Polarity Therapy system can take diverse forms, always based on the underlying intention to support the client’s inherent self-healing intelligence as expressed in its energetic patterns.

Polarity Therapy was developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, DO, DC, ND (1890-1981), who conducted a thorough investigation of energy in the healing arts over the course of his 60-year medical career. Drawing on information from a wide range of sources, he found that the Human Energy Field is affected by touch, diet, movement, sound, attitudes, relationships, life experience, trauma and environmental factors. Since Polarity Therapy lends an energy-based perspective to all these subjects, the scope of Polarity practice is often very broad, with implications for health professionals in many therapeutic disciplines.

As a result, Polarity supports strong connections to many other healing and holistic health systems. For example, basic characteristics of the Human Energy Field are described in many sources, both ancient and modern. From the Ayurvedic tradition, Polarity integrates the “Three Principles and Five Chakras” and has been called the modern manifestation of ancient Hermetic Philosophy. Polarity is experienced as the universal pulsation of expansion/contraction or repulsion/attraction known as Yang and Yin in Oriental therapies. Energy moves out from a central source – which is repulsion, then back to the source – which is attraction. Polarity practitioners use this natural phenomenon as a way of tracking energy flow.

tumblr_nfoyd5T6dL1rtynt1o1_1280

So these are all varied approaches to the same phenomenon, known by many different terms in different cultures and traditions, prana, chi, ki, L-field, Holy Spirit, etc, etc.

If you try to comprehend this stuff from within, or using, the standard orthodox mainstream materialist mechanistic Cartesian paradigm, which we all get taught in Western culture, as being ‘the truth’, then you will not get very far, because that understanding has already excluded the very possibility of any of this right from the start, for POLITICAL reasons.

tumblr_numjlmyr4H1u9xsgao1_1280

Because the ideological priorities, when the scientific project first got going, during the Enlightenment, were to fight off the forces of religious conservative power, which wanted to prevent any such venture ever happening at all. That’s the history, from hundreds of years ago, and we are STILL stuck with that absurd nonsense.

I am not arguing against reason, rationality, logic, or the scientific method. There’s all those twits who will say ‘Oh, this is all woowoo’

What I would like, is for people to understand something about what those things are, and their place, within the general scheme of things. How we arrived where we are.

2184816_original

I am not arguing in favour of superstition, or fanciful nonsensical beliefs, either.

But look what we have got. We have leaders who are considered sane, all through soceity, business people, every kind of job and trade, people who are considered sane, who behave in the most atrocious immoral antisocial and barbaric ways.

This whole country, Britain (not to mention USA, the worst) commits war crimes, creates dreadful situations abroad, for profit. Makes money from death, exploitation, devastating the environment, here, overseas, the air, the oceans. At the highest levels there are the worst criminals, liars, bank fraudsters, paedophiles.

Is this acceptable ?

Well, we have it, in any event. In the BBC, the Lords, the Church. Everywhere.

tumblr_nv0ywuQ9BH1uv65d4o1_540

Those people are rated SANE. By Enlightenment standards. By scientific standards. Because there is no morality or ethics in science, is there.

tumblr_nqnq21HqLv1u9xsgao1_1280

And there ARE NO objective scientific tests for mental disorders.

That’s right. NONE. So, who is relying on woowoo ?

What that means is, that a person in a white coat, the qualified psychiatrist, with a string of letters after their name, says what he or she thinks about the patient. An opinion.

The patient, of course, can say what he or she thinks about the psychiatrist. But that opinion does not carry any weight. Because of the power relationship. Which is a matter of social status, rank, authority.
